@Mario_34: Please relax; we allow users to attack public figures all they like (especially when it makes them look silly, as in the case with Chrono_Cross), but attacking each other here at Nintendo Life is not kosher. Also, you're about two pages too late on the 'telling someone else their opinion doesn't count' thing, and we've all moved well beyond that portion of the conversation. Let's not rehash it :3

A good rule of thumb is to focus on the topic at hand, and not on each other. If we could get back to the original topic, that would be swell. :3

@G4L: it's been a while since i did that sidequest, but i think to finally get that thing to appear I had to go to the Sky Stage area and just walk around, changing the time — wanting to say he finally appeared around 4:00 or 5:00-ish or so. that thing shows up in the wee hours of the morning, and it's huge iirc, so you'll know when he's spawned.

@Xyphon: definitely go do some sidequests, and give some thought to going for 100% completion so you can see the true ending.

by the time i went for the final boss, i'd already beaten the hardest boss in the game (part of a sidequest)... the guide recommended being 59 or so iirc, and i remember i was at least in the mid 70's before i was able to beat that particular boss, and then i went straight through the endgame afterward. The final boss was pretty easy since I was so far overleveled for it, haha :3

fixed that for you. no offense, but this is nothing but a customer service apology — completely meaningless in the grand scale of things. of course they don't know — they're not paid to know. they're just paid to fix things if they can and say they're sorry when they can't.

@Faron: (a) i've seen some video playthrough of what you're talking about, and (b) pretty sure i didn't actually comment on it in depth, because i know i can't ('s why i asked if you could turn it off or not). Again, it's nothing new — one man's 'perfect balance' is another man's 'OMG HANDHOLDING'.

If you don't want to play games that do this (or don't let you turn off the 'help'), do your homework. For example, Xenoblade allows you to turn off the in-game guide stuff if you want and hides the in-depth tutorials in a menu. Cluigi recommended 4HoL, that's an excellent game suggestion if you want some old-school turn-you-loose-in-the-world action. I don't recall a lot of tutorial action in Radiant Historia beyond what was necessary to battle and time-travel. There are games out there that don't give the kind of in-depth help you clearly don't crave, but expecting Nintendo to stop making their first-party titles as accessible as possible to little kids is something that probably isn't going to happen. It's a trend that's been too many years in the making.

As for Konami, the only thing I can think of to explain the modern Castlevania you played was that during game testing, problems arose. Why else would they bother putting in so many explanations? Castlevania is pretty notorious for turning you loose with little direction, IMO, so if they changed the game system to be more accessible it must have been due to feedback. Perhaps they'll go a more moderate route in the next one.
