How do you survive the precipice jump in Wandering Sword? Is it something like have over 3000 health and 50+ agility or something else?

Considering the number of unfinished indie games out there I'd say plenty are inspired by Xenogears, even if unintentionally. :v:

Well, that's good. But that's not what the author of that Wikipedia-entry seems to believe. Look, to be honest, I don't have infinite time and when this thread projectile vomits half a dozen good game suggestions at me, I simply don't have the time to deeply research all of them. When I see a plot summary on Wikipedia and it mischaracterizes the game, that sucks, but it's also not my problem. Also I already said I will try those games out at a later date. Complaining about me loving those games I know nothing about not fast enough is ludicrous.

The Linke is a party I grudgingly accept exists, but I've learned enough about DDR-history I can't bring myself to trust a party that was once the SED, a party leading the corrupt state apparatus ...

OK, I feel like I have to take this threat seriously. I bought the game on my Switch eShop and it's downloading right now.











By the way, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Complete Edition is currently discounted by 84% on the European Nintendo eShop.

None of that poo poo was in your original post! You said "Soul Hackers" and after some googling, that turned out to be a series of games. And Soul Hackers 2 is on Steam!

Maybe if you are talking about one, specific game maybe you should drop more than two words about it?

Just finished up The Lost Child. Post-game challenge dungeon is still there but nahhh, I'm good. Overall pretty alright as a budget dungeon crawler cribbing off of SMT, with some of its own takes on things. Most of the more involved systems (like skill trading and level resets for your mons) aren't particularly necessary unless you want to optimize your team for the post-game dungeon, though of course you can do those things and a bit of grind to help out.

But hot drat the plot is a mess by the end. It's a spin-off of El Shaddai, which was itself a weird adaptation of the apocryphal Book of Enoch that is not officially included in the Bible. Where El Shaddai mostly stuck to Abrahamic stuff (except for some stuff about Ishtar on the side, which itself relates to more Biblical apocrypha via God's wife Asherah), TLC goes in on poaching from Lovecraft and ancient Egypt as well for its major players. Who the villain is swaps around a few times, God might be evil as per SMT tradition or maybe not (He gets blamed at one point for wanting a certain bad thing to happen to kickstart a new Deluge, but the people claiming that have some pretty skewed perspectives of their own), and the player character is very needlessly a silent protagonist as he is a distinct, named person in the plot. Motives change often, or at least get new "revelations" about how oh this thing was actually about that thing, etc, etc, right up through a post-credit scene where archangels Michael and Raphael reveal in discussion what you were really the Chosen One for, because you see...

Seriously this story has no coherent throughline. At least Lucifel is still an enigmatic dick who is helpful but in a way that sometimes feels questionable.

Once I get over the finished-game doldrums in a day or so, I plan on finally digging into SaGa: Scarlet Grace, though.

It's a precursor/prototype for The Alliance Alive, which sacrifices some of the SaGa story structure for something more linear. The formation system boiled down to 1 dedicated tank/interceptor while the other 2 are attacking or supporting. AA has a similar system, but it's more palatable since you have 5 active party members. I also kind of remember liking the in-combat elemental field balancing act you had to do?

The OST and frogpog are the main takeaways

That should be it? The jump dealt 3000 damage at 53 agility for me, so unless there's some sliding scale where higher agility reduces the amount of damage you need to tank, 3000+ and 50+ seems as likely a criteria as any.

I just assumed that was a joke, didn't realize you could actually survive. Do you get anything for succeeding?

i played basically all of GrimGrimoire OnceMore in one go yesterday, the original is the only vanillaware game i missed out on (besides the ones that weren't localized in the us). the strategy rpg stuff was okay but i was way more drawn into the story. very focused time loop mystery with a surprisingly bold protagonist. and of course the art is off the hook, love how the huge dragons and chimeras are too big to fit on the battlefields so they walk "on top" of it instead

A fishing point with some random things, a cultivation manual that I think isn't available elsewhere, and a free bed to heal up the giant pile of damage you took jumping off the cliff.

You're getting weirdly heated about a misunderstanding generated by you making a bunch of assumptions off a quick glance at the Steam and wiki pages for the wrong game and then doubling down that this is somehow the fault of other posters. Please just chill out a little and enjoy playing Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth or something instead.

Exactly that. If it doesn't work you need more agility, I did it with 60.

Keep in mind higher-grade cultivation techniques equipped give you more HP, so if you're using a blue or green one for its traits when you have an unequipped yellow, that can help.

A good cultivation technique manual.

Alright cool. I'm not quite there yet but I'm going to head back once I am. It's a pity you only get stats from equipped cultivations but with how many exist in game I cane see how out of control character stats would get if they all counted.

Look; after delivering a three-stage asskicking you're guaranteed a brief moment of agreement and melancholy camaraderie where they'll probably reciprocate those feelings before dissipating into twinkly lights and leaving you on your own anyway.

If you want something to last, you gotta work much harder to tell her how you feel without fighting her with two or three of your closest and heavily-levelled allies at your side while an epic operatic piece plays in the background.
