I just finished the game. It was pretty great, though I personally don't think it reached the level of masterpiece it was probably trying for.

The rhyming kept going from charming to annoyingly forced and in general outside of the combat and presentation it more often than not didn't get past "pretty good" for me, but it was far more than worth the 15 dollars certainly. Also, we really need more JRPGs that aren't trying to be 50+ hours long, so I appreciated this game understanding pacing.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Can anybody offer me any help finding Avo's farm and beating all the monsters? I went back to the house that I thought it was, just before the monastary at the end of the area, and beat all the monsters there. And the monsters in the area before that back to the little water shrine. Up thru the trees into the little secret area. Tried all the doors on the floating platforms. Seemed like a few respawned but I haven't seen any for awhile now. I have been as far ahead in the story as finding the flying pig and meeting up w/ the new character just past the pig joining the party - I have 4 now - but I havne't traveled up into the flying mountain after that yet. I've basically just centered myself on the guy looking for his shovel, flying back and forth killing everything I can find to kill. Does the game tell you when you've succeeded or do I need to keep flying back to Avo to ask him if I'm done?

Placeholder sig until I come up with something clever to say.

@rjejr It sounds like you're at the right place - it's the house right before you reach the peach tree. There aren't any spiders up on the platforms, just four spiders (iirc) around the farm, down on the ground and close by.

Thanks, guess I'll keep looking, though I do have a full grown peach tree in my yard, and a smaller one next to that, and I haven't seen any peach trees in the game .

Finally found the house and I honestly can't recall ever seeing it before, though it was a lot closer to the beginning of the game than I thought so maybe I was just distracted by the newness of the game. Thanks for the words of encouragement. Made it to mice city then called it a night. I'm not even going to bother looking for the circus and her brother, one long side quest mission is enough for now.

Glad you found it! And yep, it's the tree near the start of the game, I guess I should have mentioned that. Though when I mentioned peach tree, this is what I had in mind:

As for the circus, well, you should find that automatically as you explore.

Nice photo - that the new Zelda U game?

Finally got around to playing this one. Easily one of my favorite games of all time. Loved it. Very emotional experience (no, not the tears kind). I would recommend this to anyone and everyone.

I saw that the mod locked the thread about Child of Light being 720p on Wii U, and 1080p on Xbox One/PS4.

In real life, Ubisoft didn't port the 1080p version from x86; they ported the Xbox 360 version. This is the engine running Rayman Legends, so it's a dead give away that they made an Xbox 360 version, ported it to PS3 and x86(then enhanced it), while leaving the Wii U version as it was from Xbox 360.

It was basically a PowerPC grouping that Wii U got caught up in, where they didn't take advantage of the hardware. We could just as easily say Wii U could have ran CoD Black Ops II, Ghosts, etc. in 1080p/60FPS, because they were direct ports without Wii U's more recent hardware in mind.
That's why you are still seeing slightly enhanced 7th generation games on Xbox One/PS4, because that's how much effort they willing to put in for the more "popular" platforms, before you aren't going to see 7th generation games in the first place, like GTA V. GTA 6 will probably come in like 5 years, and it's not going to be last generation in 1080p, anyway.

I forgot this game existed. It basically had the Vanillaware 'everything is beautiful' appeal. And what they did with Aurora's progression was similarly cool / beautiful. Believe it or not, few games since Ocarina of Time have ever changed the protagonist dramatically. It was fun enough to fly around, but it's a shame that the story wasn't better and that the rhyming writing was never voice-acted.

Also a shame that the female antagonists are all traditionally ugly, y'know, because they're bad. That doesn't sit well with my feminism / basic belief in human dignity.

If you want to get me, you'll have to go through my team of magical anime girls with tragic pasts.

@Haru17: in an interview, the writer mentioned that this was a low budget game from the start. Because of that, they explicitly ruled out voice acting. But it was a moody, beautifully produced game nevertheless. The fact that I got it on sale for under $4 was just icing on the cake.

As for appearances, I did not personally find any of the characters attractive. Interesting, yes, but not attractive. They look fine in miniature form, but in close up dialog form I would not consider even the protagonist pretty. Maybe your feminism can be consoled by the absence of any good-looking male characters either (a mouse, an ogre and a hairball).

This is for sure one of my most favorite RPG ever made. It's just a shame I got bored of playing it; after beating it 3 times on Wii U. I did a speed run on Xbox One, but I didn't feel like grinding and quit as soon as that was the only option, which was about 75% through the game.
