>you get magic as soon as you join
Yeah but without access to the good runes what's the point?
Fireball is perfectly fine for chapter 2 and Firestorm is good enough for chapter 3 and 4. And you still get death to the undead to laugh at the sleepers temple
Not to mention going firemage won't get you any better runes any faster.
>Not to mention going firemage won't get you any better runes any faster.
Nor any slower, which is kind of the point I'm trying to make. You get a pathetic one mission headstart on learning those four circles and rune access is exactly the same, I don't see how is it worth losing access to the last two circles for so little gain.
Because the last two circles are nearly worthless and arguably a waste of learning points. By going with the swamp camp you get magic earlier, lose almost nothing and get melee armor instead of the more squishy mage robes.
>you get magic earlier
One mission bruh.
>Because the last two circles are nearly worthless
If you're doing a pure mage run wave of ice, rain of fire and uriziel are fantastic, don't kid yourself.
Staying at 4th circle is only ok if you wanna go hybrid (read: be a fighter and pretend you didn't waste all those lp on mana and circles).
>melee armor
Lmao why are you in melee mage bro?

I try to make a personal comfy playlist with some comfy town jrpg music. For some reason the psx era has the best to offer so far. Any recommendation?
I got so far a few from ff7 to 9, grandia and some from suikoden.

not sure why jrpg only, TES has great town themes
i understand it like this,
japanesse themes are most of the time more uplifting, jazz-like and colorfull while the west always goes with a dark themed medival tone.
Yes there are great tracks too in morrowind, but compared to the general direction the jrpg offers more light sounds.
Just look at the ffx theme you posted, there is nothing alike in any western rpg's.
>not sure why jrpg only
Usually (not a rule) JRPGs focus on making good melodic music while WRPGs focus on setting up a good ambience
Both can be very good, but when you're listening to it on a vacuum JRPG music usually trumps WRPG

>dragon business is way dumber
Yes. The sanctimonious endings were particularly cringe, as if I'm gonna trust an insane dragon to be any help against the horrors anyway.
Or even trust dragons *in general* as opposed to Dunkelzhan and select others specifically to put the defense of the planet against metaplanar threats above their own personal agenda, lmao.
Dragonfall's writers really dropped the ball putting their own misanthropic ideologies in the game, it clashed badly with the setting.
I liked the bad end.

There is a reason the "walls of pointless text" is only used against Hong Kong and not the other games. It's because it truly is too much text. 99% of the dialog is pointless in it.

Does anyone else agree? There's just something about being able to freely distribute your turns among your large party, freely combo, the reel, and those animations that make fighting very satisfying imo.

Slow ass battle system that takes way too long for no real reason.
I definitely agree. People get so hung up on other aspects of the game that they never experience or just gloss over how fluid and intuitive the game's combat actually is.
man, why is Mythe's campaign so ridiculously difficult compared to the rest? Sometimes, I really don't get what Kawazu was thinking.
it's actually very fast though
One of the reasons why he's so fixated on having multiple main characters with their own stories and pioneered that concept was also because he could make specific difficulty adjustments for main characters.
So you'd have people like Albert, Red or Ventus who are designed with newcomers in mind and have an easier time with their content, on the other hand you also have people like Sif, Riki or Mythe who are all meant for players who're more experienced or don't mind starting out with something more challenging, or add extra challenge layers other characters can't have.
Mythe being extra ballbusting is on par with Unlimited's course.

The gameplay is terrible and the graphics suck ass. That is precisely why I enjoy it. It reminds me of bad unbalanced PC games made by 16-year-olds on crusty RPG Maker engines back in 2000s.
what game should someone start with having never played any of these?
EO2 Untold
but i'd go with EO4 since it's the easiest one, but it's not that good so if you end up hating it drop it and go to EO2
1.5 > 2.5 > 3 > 4 > 5 > X
* 1.5 is Untold: The Millennium Girl, because it features Gunner class, which is featured in 2 and Highlander, featured in it and 2.5. For 1-like experience, play Classic Mode 1st, then Story Mode afterwards.
* 2.5 is, likewise, Untold 2: The Fafnir Knight, but unlike 1st, which puts Story Mode above Classic Mode, in 2.5 the reverse happens: Classic Mode is the way to go, despite Sovereign's availability. Also, you should play it on Citra Canary if you're a completionist.
* Although I put 3 after 1.5 and 2.5, I'd personally play it first for the best DS era Etrian experience, since it's a bit harder than the first two on the list (resting drops your level by 5 on 3, while on Untolds, 4, 5, and X, it drops your level by just 2), and the previous 2 play the similar way, but I disconsider them because the very 1st game is glitchy, and 2nd is grinding hell (suddenly I get reminded of the first two Final Fantasies).

DQ12 is going to have a darker tone in contrast with all the other happy-go-lucky DQ’s where Yuusha and friends on a wacky adventure to save the world from the big bad Maou
If you want to make a rpg that isn't DQ, make another bloody rpg franchise. Why leeche on the IP's name if you are not gonna deliver something that is a logical continuation of it?
Change for the sake of change and trying to pander to people out of the fanbase by destroying what the fanbase likes are what leads gaming to become shit.
I don't want Dragon Quest Nuts and Bolts lmao.
They'll just reintroduce stuff from older games like character classes, which should have been a mainstay in the series.

Only one I've found so far is Dragon's Dogma but aside from that I've yet to find an RPG where your character's physical appearance has significant mechanical impact to the point where it's a decision that has to be carefully thought out and isn't purely an aesthetic and roleplaying choice.

Certain skills in Kenshi make you flabby instead of cut, like cooking.
In Morrowind your projectiles fly faster if your body is heavier. e.g. Orcs' fireballs are the fastest. But I doubt it was intended.
In Fable you got buffier if you invest in strength.
I remember very early in Tortanic's life people who chose bodytypes "bodybuilder" and "american" were unable to get a certain holocron on Alderaan because they couldn't fit through a crack in a wall. Their tears were delicious
In Dragonball Xenoverse 1, a larger character had higher end stats in melee attacks and a smaller character had higher end stats in energy attacks. The same applied for male and female characters respectively, so the most minmaxed energy user would be a small female saiyan.

The Pawn system was a pain in the ass, would have been better if you could just make a full party of your own.
Dragon’s Dogma lets you create and hire other people’s companions

Bastard Bonds lets you choose who joins your party. You can create characters in the main menu and have them appear in your game. Alternatively you can also show mercy to basically any enemy you come across and have them join you. I haven’t played it in a while but I remember I managed to get a centaur, a witch and some little goblin thing by stopping when they were about to die and begging for mercy.
