Atma Weapon
I Am Pure Energy

I plan on running through Majora's Mask and Ocarina on my 3DS over the holiday break.

I still haven't played Bravely Default which I bought over a year ago. Might give it a shot as well.

I'm having a lot of fun with Bravely Default. I wish Final Fantasy was still like this.

I turned on Japanese audio 30 minutes in and never regretted it for a second.

Playing A Link Between Worlds in my idle time.  Have to admit, in this age of over-produced yet still somehow shockingly unfinished games, it's actually some pretty solid throwback fun.

Is Bravely Default rare or something?  It's like $60 on Amazon...

Haven't really touched my 3DS yet because I was in the middle of a visual novel game on Vita.  Once I'm through that I'll get into Pokemon.

I saw check again, I just saw it on Amazon for 42. And I saw it at Walmart or Best Buy recently for $40. It's a big game.

I never played Dragon Quest VII so I might nab that next and see if it's as good as the DQ cultists claim.

I missed the question on Majora's Mask. You might love it depending on your taste. The central gameplay mechanism is that the game is on a timer, and you have to advance the story before time runs out, then use your ocarina to go back in time and do the next part. To me this is very disruptive to the adventure and results in doing dungeons or quests multiple times your first play through. Every Zelda fan's personal feelings about the game are shaped by their feelings about the timer mechanism. Link does get some really neat powers based on what Mask you are wearing.

For me OoT is my favorite video game so Majora's Mask has a huge legacy to live up to and comes up short. It's still a solid Zelda game and worth taking a crack at either way.

Yeah - I wasn't really a MM fan.  Time mechanics in games really stress me out.

But didn't I hear that they made some changes for the 3DS version?  Like you can save anywhere instead of just at the statues or something?

Bravely Default has given me a glimmer of hope that the genre of turn-based JRPGs isn't necessarily on its death bed. Last night I was on my 3DS for over 4 hours and I couldn't put it down.

However I believe JRPGs will continue to be a niche genre with a lot of cookie cutter games, with notable exceptions every 2-3 years. :(

Update: this game is CRACK. The gameplay is deep and engaging. I am really digging the boss design. These are some well crafted battles.

Don't worry, I'm just watching you.



On the Dragon Quest side of things, the DQ8 port is out in th US on Friday. I know I didn't finish it on the PS2.

Might someone who is sickened by the state of post-X Final Fantasy find something of value in Bravely Default?

The story and the characters suck but I enjoy the old school RPG gameplay. Bad stories are usually nonstarters for me in RPGs, but for some reason I can look past it this time.

My biggest problem with post-X FF is the gameplay. I hate the actiony battle systems that are dumbed down for the mainstream gaming market and only let you control 1 character.

A fair point, they are pretty crap at both these days.

The pacing started to drag in Champter 3. There's a lot of filler.
