How should I play Romancing SaGa, the SNES original version or the 3D PS2 remake?
Minstrel Song is the better game and one of the best games in the entire series. The original has a lot of infuriatingly archaic mechanics that make the game more of a chore than anything, but it's still playable I guess. It can't hurt to give it a try first to see if you like it considering MS is kind of a compilation of a bunch of other mechanics that were used throughout the series that weren't in the original. If you haven't played other SaGa games then it might be too overwhelming for someone who isn't familiar with the series.

Sleep trivializes the Mulahey fight, same as most of the first half of that game, cast it on the scrubs and mop them up when convenient. Imoen's wand interrupts Mulahey's spell casting, use it.

I like the Xenoblade series and every game has their strengths and flaws for sure. What concerns me is every entry so far seems to be radically different from the other. 1 has your generic combat shit, X retains that but throws in added customization and skells, then there’s 2 with Pokémon-lite blade mechanics. What the fuck is 3 going to be like or will we ever have hope of finishing X after the cliffhanger?

Adam Howden did a really good job. The scene where Reyn tells him to speak up about his visions is one of my all time favorite scenes in jrpgs.
I meant in general, the more people they have available, the more optimized the Blade games will be, even if there's multiple branches
Also Pikmin 3, so they're likely involved in Pikmin 4.

Welp, I thought I was in for an amazing tactical RPG for the PSX with FF Tactics, but I can't be bothered to sit through such a shallow story. It really is just going to devolve into "NOBLES BAD", isn't it? The game literally spoiled that Delita was going to become my enemy (which means I don't have to give a shit about him anymore), and now I have to kill off Algus, the best character so far. I fell for the bait that this game had a deep and complex story, and I thought it was true after seeing Algus' various lines. But then they just pull the classic JRPG cliche story that we've all seen a million times. Lame.
So could someone please explain to me why this game's story is so highly regarded? Perhaps it gets better? Please tell me it gets better.

There's also Dark Knight and Onion Knight, but both arguably take more work than Calc for not as much payoff. Although DK lets Ramza and generics use Sword Skills, so it's no longer the domain of Agrias/Meliadoul/Orlandu.

The setting is modern day. Humanity has undergone a cataclysmic encounter with an eldritch entity, permanently warping the fabric of reality; changing the perception of time and space on mass scales, cities and the people in them being in two different places in the world at the same time, geospecific never ending day and night cycles, terrain and structure altering gravity shifts, mass time loops, buildings, streets, and homes relegated to one way pocket dimensions, continuity of history conforming to changes in, and most notably, otherworldy monuments and structures that are clearly out of place but exist as if theyve always existed alongside man made structures etc.

Nearly all of the human population has no memory of the what events led up to the reality shift, nor have any semblence of distress when subject to these reality defining changes. Those who remember reality as it was before live in areas unaffected by the cataclysm away from the rest of humanity. They live secluded as interactions with the main human population can result in extreme mind states, transformations into otherworldy creatures lacking sapience, or the individual(s) turning into severe reality warping epicenters that can result in reality collapsing on itself.

You, being one of the unafflicted, experience partial visions of the cataclysm, unventured locations, and visions of strange artifacts. You're convinced that these visions provide piece of the answer to how the world came to be in the state its in, and possibly how it could be changed back.

I'm on my first playthrough of FF4 (J2e's 10th anniversary edition translation) and final boss is kicking my ass. All my party is between LV 54-57, is this ok? Am I underleveled?

Cecil has Ragnarok sword and Crystal armor. Edge has Genji armor and Diamond arms wih 55 defense.
Cain has Holy Lance and Dragon armor.
What do? Hurry before the Xanax wears off and I end up frustrated giving up on this charming yet horribly archaic rpg.

I do. I fap to it still, now and then. Cecil is a lucky man.
Just don't revive Rydia or Edge and you're good.

I've beat this with character's around level 45-50 with this strategy, so I figure your higher level characters will be just fine.

The main problem is Big Bang. It hits everyone hard, usually kills Rydia, and sometimes even Rosa or Edge. It sometimes misses Kain when he jumps at the right time.

Have Rosa cast Cure4 every turn she gets. If her turn comes up, and you know that Zeromus is about to use Big Bang, then just wait. Have him attack and have her follow up with it afterwards. Every so often Rosa may die. When this happens immediately hit her with a Life potion followed by an Elixir. Do not let her run out of magic during this battle. Her job is to cast Cure4 continuously.

Do not try to revive Rydia. When Big Bang kills her, leave her dead. You will get the whole party killed trying to bring her back to life constatntly. When she is alive, don't cast any spells on Zeromus. Just have her aid in the healing efforts or cast buff spells until she dies.

Keep the rest of everyone alive. Prioritize keeping Rosa alive, then Cecil and Kain. If Edge goes down, bring him back, but Kain and Cecil are more important. Cecil, Edge and Kain should constantly use potions to make up any deficits that Rosa's Cure4 doesn't handle. Edge fights the weakest, so put him on potion duty before Cecil or Kain.

When you aren't healing, you want Cecil fighting. Have Edge dart all your cool unequipped spears and swords, then switch to your best ninja stars or fighting. Kain should fight or jump, with an emphasis on fighting when there is no reasonable chance he'll miss a Big Bang.

After about a ten minute slog, you will notice Zeromus casts Meteo instead of Big Bang. At this point you've pretty much won. He will be dead in a few more turns, and he won't be harming you anywhere near when he was using Big Bang. You can safely bring back Rydia if you want to and even use her magic (I don't bother though - same ending whether or not she's alive at the end).
Just bought FFIV and FFIV the after years on Steam. Haven't played FFIV since I was little, and that was the standard SNES version. What am I in for?

>and then you get one(1) chance to steal from maat to win and if you dont steal you have to do it all over again*. not super great design.

What are you talking about? You don't need to steal from him it's optional. You can also summon trusts so it's super easy now.
yeah, it's optional but that was the original design. I don't know of any THF mains that beat maat without steal back in the day pre WS buff and pre dagger D buff.

and yeah in retail genkais don't really deserve to exist with trusts being around, it's just an arbitrary roadblock at this point, there's no need to group up to do G1/2/3. If they were optional or at least skippable with RoV kis that would've been nice.

I would definetely play this instead of XIV if there would be a way to get regional pricing in the sub
I got the ultimate edition years ago and never actually used up my code and was thinking does using the 14 day trial to get to 50 and then getting the initial 30 days is enough to do limit break quests for one class, and main story from rise of zilart until the end of wings of goddess?
I have the free time, I did the city main story on a private server and some LB quests some months ago but since I heard retail is way faster to level up I think it will take way less time
on retail you can get 0-50 in 1 day if you know what you're doing. I have never hardcore speedran the stories for alt accounts but I think it may be possible to to do all the story minus seekers in 30 days. The main time sink that's not doing story is genkais (limit breaks) every 5 levels starting at 50.

The first three start hard then the rest are a lot easier as far as time is concerned mostly because you can just trade at the login points moogle for crests or items for genkais.

If anything the first 14 days could be to get as many trusts as you can to prep for later.
As someone who might never actually get back into the game, and quit paying back then before cop came out. Ive always heard the story is great and kinda just would like to read a quick rundown if you have the time anon.

Minstrel Song, and TLR to an extent, but TLR is much more grounded in the general choreography.

The character designs aren't bad, just a little stagnant.
I'm ready for Matsuyama to do another style overhaul and give us something really different from the last few games.
