Re: Is Wii U doomed to not attract "hardcore" gamers?

theblackdragon

'hardcore' is one of those words that has a different definition every time you ask someone what it means.

That said, this is an impossible question to answer, because no one really knows, and we won't know until the system hits and we start seeing numbers.

Re: Xenoblade Chronicles

theblackdragon

@Tech: I realize that, but to be honest I haven't been paying attention to how often named monsters respawn. I just know that the ones i've killed so far haven't yet come back — that bunniv in Tephra Cave, at least... it's been gone for quite a while i think, lol. i should probably check up to see if any of the others i've offed have respawned yet D:

Re: Xenoblade Chronicles

theblackdragon

what are we talking about with 'a while to respawn'? is this some rough unit of IRL time, or can we just mess with the in-game clock? i've been doing my best to kill anything and everything i come across so far, including named creatures, so i hope i haven't killed anything i'm going to need to kill again soon, haha D:

Re: QotD #357: Was there ever a point in a certain Video game moment where you really held a strong emotion?

theblackdragon

My first playthrough of Suikoden II back in the day, right after your army goes through that epic three-part battle (man oh man it took me forever to get through it that first time because i hadn't used a guide and i was woefully unprepared!). The next part of the story has you go to sign a treaty with someone very special to the main character, and what happens next... I have never been so angry with a fictional character in all my born days. For the decisions he made, I still hate him now. I think the strong emotions this game triggered for me is why it's still one of my all-time favorite games even now. :3

Um....theblackdragon how do you damage mechon in the colony 9 attack?

the game shows you how — you should be able to pull it up in the 'tutorials' menu — but you'll need Shulk to use an Art that has 'break' as an effect (either his main talent works or that one Art that hits multiple enemies in the front of the group), then you'll need Reyn (or another character who joins you; idk how far along in the attack you are) to use his Art that has 'topple' as an effect ('wild' something for Reyn, and then the other character also has a topple move iirc). first Break, then Topple, then just go ham on 'em when they fall. :3

@G4L: thank you, i'll check that out when i get home :3
@tech: thanks, bro — i'll take a closer look at my quest log and see if i can figure it out :3

Re: Xenoblade Chronicles

theblackdragon

eff me this game is freakin' huge! i think i spent a solid eight hours over the course of last night and this morning just running around picking up collectables and doing sidequests. I kept getting lost, Colony 9 is huge and gorgeous! I finally had to force myself to stop doing sidequests and advance the story ffs, though, so now i'm about to leave the Colony and head out into the rest of the world as we know it, lol (figures, i'd just gotten used to Colony 9's layout and now i have to leave) :3

that said, i mentioned this to someone else earlier, but the similarity of the quests to how WoW works confuses me because only some of them do you need to go back to the people who gave you the quest to pick up the reward, not all. It seems to mainly be the creature-killing quests that are automatic, but i damn near killed myself messing around with the time system, trying to see exactly when who came out where and blah-blah-blah only to finally locate one of the people i was looking for, and he didn't react at all when i talked to him. I'd completed two of his 'go kill these things to make our colony safer' quests and he wasn't interested in me at all, and then when i hit up the store i noticed i had more money than i'd had before, so i can only assume that i'd received the reward automatically. Maybe I've missed the cues (which is very likely, lol), but is there an easier way to tell whether or not you have to make the jump/trek back to where the quest-giver was in order to receive the reward?
