Re: High Def Sega!

I don't actually own a sega genesis console but I've been wanting to add one to my collection. (It was one of the systems that I was forced to give up in my youth.) Sonic's Ultimate Collection on my 360 is great for the basics, but playing Mutant League Football or Rocket Knight Adventures isn't an...

Re: Easy SRPGs?

Has anyone here played the Fire Emblem games? How would you say they stack up against Final Fantasy Tactics? I've looked at screenshots, and the battlefields all look completely flat-- which to me is a good thing. The layered and sloping battlefields of FFT are a little hard to navigate, especially...

It's at the same price point as the super net, which is $189

Re: Easy SRPGs?

Yeah, ptdebate has it right - you learn it as a Chemist ability. Admittedly, it's been like 5-10 years since the last time I played through FFT, so my memory on some things in fuzzy. One thing I do remember though is that I hate Chemists. Well, really, I hate using healing items in any RPG.. I want...

Re: Easy SRPGs?

I always make sure to avoid losing characters - stock up on Phoenix Downs early on. Question: How do I use phoenix downs? I've got a ton of them, but none of my guys have the option to use them. The chemist can use potions, but not PDs. Phoenix Down is an ability in the Chemist job that costs a cer...

Re: High Def Sega!

I LOVE my Analogue Super Nt so being a Genesis/MD fan (honestly more than I am an SNES fan), this will be a day one pickup for me.

Re: Easy SRPGs?

I was told to avoid grinding in FFT because the enemies level with you, essentially making leveling up at all pointless. Remember though that in Tactics the biggest reason for leveling up is gaining new abilities through JP (Job Points). A black mage with Firaga is going to categorically outclass a...

Re: Easy SRPGs?

I've always heard people say that FFT is a hard game, but I don't get that. It is challenging, but I think the secret to success is a lot of grinding by replaying battles to get your levels up. You'll lose here and there, and it sucks to lose 30 minutes into a battle and have to start over, but gen...

Re: Easy SRPGs?

I'd recommend Fire Emblem: Awakening for the 3DS. Although FE is typically a more challenging series, the recent ones have multiple difficulty levels so they are more accessible.

Agreed on FFT. The game is absolutely decimating me right now. Gotta git gud.
