Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan

Do you also play with non-PlayStation devices? Do you enjoy playing as a plumber saving a princess? Or some bald marines? Or maybe you want to play using the touchscreen?

Nadownload ko na yung demo. Verdict bukas. Pero initial comment ko lang, immediately reminded ako of monster rancher for some reason sa simula.

Sana magustuhan niyo. Isa to sa mga games na di ko maexplain sa mga kaibigan ko kung bakit ko gusto. Ang sagot ko parati, mapa. Masaya i-drawing yung mapa ng mga dinadaanan mo. You can just imagine the excitement on their faces. :sweat:

I love that you're so enthusiastic but after one dungeon into the game, i have to say i'm unimpressed. They really couldn't be bothered to make models? The battles are boring because of it, kahit sa pag navigate ng dungeon mismo nakakafrustrate... I get that you draw your own map and it's cool and all but it gets old if that's your only draw. At one point, sinabi na may soldier na palapit sakin, asan siya sa environment? Kung hindi pa dahil sa text and portrait nung soldier, walang bakas na nandun siya... Invisible mismo dun sa environment screen. :banghead: kaasar ang katamaran nila gumawa ng models. This is more of a VN ,minus the heroines to conquer, than a proper RPG. That is not a good thing. Still not the final verdict though, maybe it gets better but as it stands, i'm not liking it. I'll try to finish tomorrow.

On a side note, about dungeons and dragons(yung nilalaro kahit sa papel lang) yung poll sa gamefaqs and this game is almost exactly the video game version of that. I voted negatively on the poll btw.

Aww sad to see na you haven't got over that hump of the lack of your own physical characters.

Btw sana ito maging game of the month. :mrgreen:

It's not just my own characters, i really really think they just used the FP view as an excuse to cut costs in the development. Like i've said earlier, may soldier daw na lumapit sakin and he was nowhere to be seen in the dungeon environment except the text and portrait that indicated it... That's just lazy. And also, there's an inherent logical flaw na somehow, shared yung view ng BUONG guild. One character i understand but that character should still be able to see what's beside him, and in frnt of him if nasa back row siya, he still should be able to see when his teammates attack the monster. They just took the FP view to the extreme.

I'm not really one to b**** about graphics, i'm a jrpg fan and most jrpgs are inherently not upper echelon graphics wise unless It's FF, but when it looks and feels like they didn't even try ,i feel cheated.

btw, mh month na dude, i doubt maging gotm to. :bigmouth:

Yun nga reaction ko talaga this is almost exactly the video game counterpart of d&d which i'm still not sure is a good thing. More like a gimmick to cut costs by producing a barebones product at the same time.

Back to the game, if there's one thing i like... It's the BGM. Tama nga, it's a good pick-me-up.

Ako naman yung pagiging old school niya yung talagang draw niya sakin. Might get this later this March or April. :grin:

Pero ito muna din ang GotM natin kasi late pa ang MH3 for Wiiu and 3DS so April na sila papasok as Gotm. :agree:

Lol, nakita ko to kanina sa shangrila DB day 1 edition with soundtrack and i have to admit, i was tempted...but just teeny tiny bit and only because i found myself with some unexpected funds. Maybe the complete game may get me on board... I don't know but The demo certainly didn't. Kunin na ng mga may gusto, sayang din ost and box.

What makes you doubt the game?

Di niya feel yung game presentation. Understandable naman, muntikan ko din ma look pass ito. :sweat: buti maganda mood ko talaga ng tinry ko ulit yung demo kaya pati small details sa game naka add up sa pagka gusto ko sa kanya.

@martian
Hehe I suggest wag mo bilhin dahil sa bonus. Yung music cd puro midi tones or raw version ng mga music na ginamit sa game. Kasi yung sa game orchestrated na kaya masarap pakinggan.

@luca
I've had a lot to say about it over the last few days and had some pet peeves about it. Paki back read na lang if you're really curious. Just know that i really really tried my best to buy in into the game but it just really didn't work out. Well documented ang effort ko dito sa thread and my issues with it.

@parokyano
Kuha mo reasons ko sir.

Haha actually, nakakuha kasi ako ng first day edition din Code of Princess kanina, na tempt lang ako na ipares. :lol: and oo yung music talaga ang isa sa mga few things na nagustuhan ko from sampling the demo. Gusto ko pakinggan habang nagiinternet. :cheer:

Just beat the first boss, very tense and exciting, haven't fought a boss battle like this in years...

Kinakabahan ako nung una kasi malakas bumawas. So nagspaspam ng heal iyun medic ko kahit di kelangan. Ayan tuloy, may 1/4 life pa iyun boss naubos na siya ng TP. Puro defend na lang ako sa last part ng laban. Eh iyun nangyari tig 30 hp na lang kami, tapos meron siyang attack that will hit all party members which would mean instant death, kaya ayun, pinaphysical attack ko na lahat, pati iyun healer tsaka spellcaster(at this point naubusan na rin siya ng TP). Buwis buhay na lang, it was either us or him, buti na lang nagcritical iyun sniper ko, buhay kami lahat :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

Well, from all the good feedback from the actual game.... My stance changed from a definite "no buy" to at least a "2nd hand buy". Let me see what the fuss is about.

Ito din maganda dito yung mga extra missions via qr codes lang.. :agree:

Gusto ko din yung need pumatay ng certain monster para for a certain loot para sa certain weapon or armor.. And pag naubos yung loot/s and need pa bumili ng armor or weapon need mag hunt ulit.. Feel talaga pagiging adventurer.. :agree: may mga pinoy items din dito gaya ng balisong, culantro and kapok. :agree:
