How do you deal with the retard balance system going from "stupid easy" to "impossibly hard" ? I want to love this game but I simply cannot because It's so badly balanced. I'm waiting for their next game. The amount of theory craft for all classes is insane !

There's a hardmode mod I played for 8 that made the game pretty fun. It basically removed fucking with the level scaling though by auto scaling bosses up.
Was fun but I probably shouldn't have played it before the normal one.

3 was waiting for Telltale to do the initial lifting for character motivations from Tales From the Borderlands Season 2.
Which never happened.
3 runs like garbage while not looking better than 2. Warframe removed any gameplay reason for Borderlands to exist.

2/TPS are way, way better than Warframe.

When are we getting a Grandia IV?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Isn't that what Xtreme is?
It came out before III
The guy who wrote these games died. Even if we did get a Grandia 4 it would never be able to live up to the writing quality (and honestly amazing romance subplots) of 1 and 2.
You’re being sarcastic right? The plot in G3 was the most boring shit ever
I said 1 and 2, the guy who created Grandia Takeshi Miyaji, left the company and didn't have any involvement in 3.

Somehow I have never played this. Which version should I emulate - PSP or PS1? The PSP advantages seem to be the translation, animated cutscenes, and two new jobs. But the PS1 graphics actually seem to look better since they're not >filtered (I will be playing on a CRT)

PS1 vs PSP is literally SOUL vs SOULLESS
PSP has soulless script (mistakes in the original translation are bad, but purposely straight up rewritten dialogue is worse, people itt WILL DEFEND straight up making shit up aka rewrites), worse sound, no ability battle cries, skill delay, no satisfying oomph to the skill effects, just awful. Only reason I can think of to play PSP ver is if you really like one of the cameo characters in it.

There are dedicated groups of shitposters that deliberately recommend the worst versions of any given FF game and cry foul when the corrections inevitably come.

Why dues Square refuse to release this game for modern consoles?
Good question, brother
They already ported it to the 3DS and iPhone a few years back, in their eyes those ports are modern enough.
Squeenix likes to save classics as replacement-exclusives for Sony when they reach an agreement with Sony then fuck over the deal for Microsoft.

So expect it shortly after Squeenix announces another Sony exclusive.

Why didn't it sell as much as the first game?

I'm replaying Alpha Protocol right now, and it's just hilarious how just in 5 years Obsidian lost all of its balls for actual experimentation.
What the hell happened? Where's actual player agency? Why can't i roleplay an actual asshole or a womanizer anymore? Why the setting in PoE is so dry and boring it gets casually BTFO by a simple real life political thriller? Where are actually interesting female characters?
That doesn't mean what you seem to think. Don't be so upset that you misunderstood anon.
>real life political thriller
To be fair, literally no fantasy shit can top that.
Fantasy political thriller can.
Needs some good writers though.

>spending hours LFG and grinding miniscule EXP.
Unless you're doing endgame, that's no longer an issue.
On this topic, supposedly RoV is fully doable with trusts. Is it the same for VoRe thus far?
I have basic 119 AF Gear and no Su Bonuses and am up to date. Only issue I had was one fight and that wasn't because of gear.
Wait, this game is almost 20 years old?
Just about. Next year is supposed to be a big announcement too.

I love the aesthetic of ff13 regardless of how much it shitt and would love some more on the high fantasy X futurism aesthetic, any games out there to satiate my desires?
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Edge of Eternity on Steam has its aesthetic clearly inspired by Fabula Nova Crystalis.
The game is unfinished and has some trashy vibes, not necessarily a good game but it is still better than the entire XIII saga.
File: The_Crystal_Bearers.jpg (81 KB, 1020x577)

Also the style is not uncommon at all. Even in the Final Fantasy series both FF Type 0 Agito and The Crystal Bearers have it for example.
I can probably dig up like 5 more games if you are still around.
I dig it, never even heard of crystal bearers before, think it was ambitious to expect a modern game with the style as the budget must have still been through the roof. What else were you thinking?
>crystal bearers
It is an odd game, and a bit divisive, since it has motion control WII combat which is a bit shit. It sometimes appears in worst games of all times lists, but it has a lot of soul. Kawazu, Square's SaGa dude and one of the most renowed JRPG dudes on this board, had his hands in the game.

Is Ivalice techno-fantasy enough for you? Then you got an easy start. The Fabula Nova Crystlalis (the clusterfuck of games that FFXIII is a part off) is directly inspired by Ivalice Alliance. And unlike Fabula Nova Crystallis where only maybe one game is good, all four main Ivalice Alliance and some of the unnamed games are good.

So to write it out:
FF XII Revenant Wings
FF Tactics: The War of the Lions
FF TA2 Grimoire of the Rift

Vagrant Story is the best non ivalice Alliance Ivalice game and one of the Square golden age classics.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
also there is Resonance of Fate, which goes a bit much into the guns and grime over the fantasy, and is generally a B-tier JRPG, but it comes fairly close to FXIII's aesthetic.

>BG2 every single area outside Athkatla is basically spoilered to the player in one way or another.
Pretty sure Underdark isn't as well. But you are correct. The biggest problem yet is that you're traversing pretty big area of land, and there's nothing to show for in most areas. Suldanessllar is two screens map, the rest of the settlements are one small screen, plus one combat area. Only two vast locations outside of Ahmn are Underdark and De'Arnise Hold. There's a lot of content packed into the game, but the setting feels underwhelming as soon as you leave Athatla.
You're forgetting Spellhold too but yeah

What is Remake Sephiroth's endgame? Is he genuinely trying to help Cloud, or is he just trying to re-write destiny cause he knows he'll get btfo?
Sephritoth is messing with Lifestream after he got defeated in AC, he somehow manages to affect the past to stop his own demise, it's either that or we get a redemption arc where he is reborn into the boy who looks mysteriously like him and becomes a good guy the end.
To mess with oldschool fans.
>What is Remake Sephiroth's endgame
To advertise the Battle Royale FF7 game. Without a shadow of the doubt.
Unrustle his jimmies after losing the first time, just like it always has been
He's trying to gather up all the different Sephiroths to fuse into Super Safe Sephiroth who is unbeatable
