@Joshers: the way I play, I consider 'at level' to be where I can go through an area and each of the characters in my party will be able to wipe out a normal enemy in one turn with physical attacks. when I reach that point, I know the next boss will be a snap — it's probably overkill, but i've played the game so many times through that it's the habit i've gotten into, lol. again, if you make a point to defeat every single enemy you come across, even if you go through the same area twice to go back and get something you missed, it's easy to keep your level up.

To be honest, though, I don't really know exactly what level that is at Booster's Tower, but I do know the Tower is a great place to sit and level if I'm not quite there yet because there are points where enemies just scroll across the screen and you can either choose to fight them or avoid them — they literally come to you, so you can just keep pressing A (and don't forget those Timed Hits!) and rake in the EXP that way if you want.

Just remember that your EXP earned is the same for everyone in your group, you don't have to actually have them in your party at all. compared to other RPGs, it actually makes things a lot easier for you :3

also, if it's just EXP you want, and you want it now now now now nowwwwwwww, whenever you come across an area with a Starman and a bunch of enemies to defeat (and there's one coming up after the Booster events are over and done with), make sure you save beforehand — but remove all your equipment first. then go ahead and get the star, kill all the enemies and rake in the EXP, and when that's over, find an enemy and let it kill you (WITHOUT saving beforehand). When you Game Over in SMRPG, you don't lose any EXP and you respawn at the last Save Point you used, so that Starman will be there for you to get again (since you saved before using it) — as well as all those enemies to defeat with it. You can level up very, very quickly with that cheat if you don't want to go about it the legit way. :3

Just hold on to them for now. A little further on, you'll come to a point where you can use them for some much nicer items than what they're trying to sell you down at Frogfucius' place. :3

Booster Tower is a great place to level if you want to hang out for a bit and get ahead, lol. It's one of my favorite areas of the game, and then what happens afterward is great too, but i won't spoil it for you :3

If you go back to that waterfall, you can do that sequence a few times over for Frog Coins. Also, do your best to find all the hidden treasure boxes along your way, and if you find that Jam in the Sewers for Frogfucius (i forget when exactly you get the chance to do that), he gives you a few Frog Coins too iirc. so long as you don't spend any of them on the BS items the tadpoles sell, you should have Coins enough to nab that badge in no time.

To be honest, though, with the level cap at 30, it's not hard to get up there by the end of the game, so that double-exp badge is pretty useless IMO. Just make sure to fight every single enemy you come across, no running away, and you'll either be at or very close to 30 by the time you battle Smithy.

you're attempting to exonerate them for their lack of action by attempting to pass this off as a sound business decision. you may as well be defending what happened, IMO, because you're trying to put them in the right on some level for not having done a damn thing to stop what went on, which is absolutely abhorrent.

Yes sexual harassment is completely wrong, and they should have acted more hardly against the offender, rather than simply sending out a general statement. But

wait, 'but'? there's a 'but' here? there should be no 'but' behind this statement — the people tuning in are the ones already looking to purchase this sort of game anyway. it's already going to sell like hotcakes; what the hell does Capcom need this competition/livestream for? it's fluff, or at least that's what it should've been.

Aviator wrote:

In no way am I justifying what has happened/hasn't happened,

]you just said "But Capcom are a business, and this channel is promoting their game." how is that not justifying Capcom's lack of action beyond their disclaimer statement?

Aviator wrote:

and listening to the comments whatshisface made I honestly wanted to shout at him, but, it's hard when, and this may seem wrong, sexual harassment is overlooked by looming titles. I do honestly think the situation would be different had this of occurred when the game wasn't close to being released, and we don't know to what extent Capcom 'dealt with the matter'.

I'm not exactly sure what you're saying here, but considering he was allowed to continue beyond Day 1 obviously unhindered, I think that speaks volumes regarding what 'extent' Capcom 'dealt with the matter' — e.g. they didn't. Certainly not to my satisfaction.

Aviator wrote:

At the end of the day really, your opinion on the matter comes down to your opinion on ethics. Although the comments that were made disgusted me, (and to hear that the female contestant was too distraught to play just made my heart break), byt what one person said, whose only connection to Capcom is through a stream, isn't going to affect my view on Capcom as a company.

Good to know. It's definitely affected mine, however.

Wait... does anyone know for absolute sure if they're just sponsoring it, or do they really have a hand in what's going on? this article here says they're 'collaborating' with iPlayWinner, Team Sp00ky, and 'working closely with' IGN to bring it to the masses. Even IGN's announcement article calls it 'Capcom's Cross Assault'. I like how they make it look like they own the place — up until the point where it's time to deny all association with remarks made by the players but let them keep doing their thing unchecked.
... and with that, i'm done for the night. gotta calm the rage so i can get some sleep D:

'potentially offensive' my foot — this. is. harassment. he was asked to stop and did not — flat-out refused, even, arguing on-air that he and every other male present had the right to make whatever sexual and racial jokes they wanted with the 'you know i'm just playin', baby, if you take me serious that's your problem' excuse. no, we don't know exactly what was signed and how, but there's no way they didn't have some sort of exit clause available. with as many lawyers as these companies employ, i refuse to believe they were that stupid as to sign away all of their rights for this competition.

The latter, there was little Capcom could do, aside from not sponsor the event next time.

Sponsors pull support from people and organizations all the time. Why Capcom wouldn't pull support for this competition when this behavior reared its ugly head and the person/people responsible refused to realize they were in the wrong is absolutely beyond me. Their continued agreement to sponsor the competition supports this behavior, it shows the audience that it's okay to be a disgusting sexist pig because that's just how the gaming world works... and that's not right.

And I know there are other companies sponsoring the competition — MadCatz, for one — but Capcom was the biggest name I noticed there, and certainly the one I (had) trusted most, which is why as a female I feel particularly betrayed that they've condoned this kind of thing by not pulling their sponsorship. I've purchased so many Capcom games over the years, but I'll be damned if they ever get another dime of my money. I don't care if the next Phoenix Wright game is flippin' amazing and the bestest thing ever. I don't care if Layton vs. Wright ever hits NA shores, I will not be purchasing it.

@Radixxs: (a) watch the hate speech, please
(b) if no attempt is made by competition staff to shut you up or boot you from the competition, then yes, in that situation SEGA's rep would certainly be hurt in my eyes — especially if it was allowed to go on over a period of days in a format available to SEGA staff for review (the way this has been allowed to happen).

as of this point, i've gotten Hijikata, Okita, and Kazama's endings, and i'm working on Saito's. I will say the story is better the second (or third) time through, once you're already familiar with everything... now it's just the tedium of waiting for the game to fast-forward through the early choices so that you can get to the better choices later (with new conversation paths to tread), lol.
