'Cause I am!
The game definitely picked up after getting Paro, but even more so after getting Pinky.
So far I'm really enjoying the writing. I haven't burst out laughing or anything, but I did smile here and there
I see it as a good thing when I want to see the next piece of dialogue in any game, just to enjoy it.
Combat is really fast, which is awesome. I'm also glad you can pretty much speed up animations, be it on the map when healing, pouting, or performing certain attacks. I first noticed this when I managed to get Pinky to learn an attack that damaged front-line enemies and drained their health but didn't want to keep seeing it
I just completed my first dungeon!
Actually, the main purpose of this thread is that I wanted to share with you guys my favorite and most enjoyable moment in the game so far
I had gotten to the fourth boss (I believe their name was Lone Warriror
) and I decided to up the ante...
Anyway, after I found out that pouting effects stacked, I did "Gimme more EXP!," "I hate being poor!," and "These enemies stink!" (made the boss stronger) on its tile and retried so many times because every time I'd get wiped out I'd come up with a different strategy (which made me have to get moar PP!) XD
Gah! It was so annoying (albeit masochistically fun) fighting the boss and finding out that if only I had two more PP, things might be better...!
I proceeded to farm money to eat and raise my PP until I was satisfied...of course, I'd go in soooo
sure that I could take him, but then think, "Crap...maybe if I get two more PP for this..." and stuff.
Sometimes I'd restart because Pinky would get killed (horrible, horrible HP/defense at that point--at least with toughened enemies) first right from the get-go =/ Oh, and some were experimental battles, too--I wanted to see if maybe Paro could learn something...
Anyway, all of it was such an interesting experience and really
made me appreciate the game so much more
Seriously, you can make this game as easy or hard as you want, and I really like that.
In the end, I made them my bitch with Ladies first/Holy Bombs/Hey! Stand Still!/healing/repeat
It felt sooo good
when I won.
I'm about seven hours in and loving the experience--it's certainly unique.
Some things I really like: being able to run away from boss battles; items are useful; the way magic is learned through Paro *(I'm not sure I understand it quite yet, though); Pinky's method to stat boosts and things he can equip; and most importantly...pouting! Oh, and the manual is great, too, by the way
I was a bit skeptical about this game at first, honestly, but I'm definitely glad I purchased it and that you guys localized it. Thank you
*Maybe I just think everything goes into the "Other" category
Just to be clear, I have to get hit [with Elise] a certain amount of times with spells, right? All in one battle or does the learning stack?
