I hope this game sells well enough for either a new game in the series or they remaster the original 4 but use the battle system from G.U. because it was less menu heavy than the original, you had shortcuts assigned to a button as opposed to have to enter the menu everytime you wanted to use a technique.
Good to hear from you. Now, are we talking the Royal Set listed at like $140? If so, that's a lot of money...
Although i picked up the game yesterday, not sure when i will actually play it. Still slow-going with Hyperdimension vii. I guess i'm just trying to level up my party by taking out low level badies. I'm imagining that, like pokemon, i'll have to get everyone in my party to level 100 to have any shot at taking out the bigger bosses?
Do you happen to have a YouTube channel? I think it would be cool to observe a Hyperdimension Neptunia pro at work.
Hoping this post finds you well,
Idr where I grinded on my original playthroughs, I just know there this metal dogoo in this one dungeon without a map that you could fight that gives a ton of exp.
I grinded in one of the coliseum battles that gave more exp and was beatable for my levels (which was around 50). Just good coordination is all that's really needed. I used Neptune Noire S-Sha and B-Sha iirc. Or maybe it was the 4 planeptunians? I don't remember.
ARPGs are actually probably my favorite genre of games so I'll get it all figured out for myself.
(Grumbles to self) Yeah, i guess i did decide to pick this up after all… This is just one of those purchases that you will literally hate yourself after making. The price point was just waayyy too high. They are sooo lucky that i have somewhat interest in the Senran series. If it was anything else (say Kingdom Hearts) absolutely NO way i would justify purchasing. On some level, i guess i also wanted to support this “water park extravaganza” to send a message that, “Thank you for thinking outside the box and giving us something more unique versus the usual sword wielding etc.” As i am still playing through Hyperdimension Neptunia Version II, God only knows when i will get around to this… I’m still waiting for the dedicated school-life visual novel (much like Clannad) with English subtitles on PS4 and the Vita. Make it happen SONY!
P.S.- Might be nice if they offered a standalone game without the extras and a lower price point so that it could be more accessible for people on a strict budget.
Well, just picked this up at GameStop today, however, it was another title and another occurrence that caused me to re-connect my PS4. The thought of Hyperdimension Neptunia VII intrigued me, so, i have been "muddling through" that, if you will. From the more "casual" gaming that i do, this game is most definitely a chore. The way i see it, i'm leveling up Neptune, her sister, and Uzume - - reminding me of the pokemon dynamic which can wear you down (so to speak). I think to myself, if @darthrutsula40 was observing me playing this game, he would be laughing his head off with all the novice mistakes i'm making, lol. Seriously though, while playing this, i wish darth was there to explain the best techniques.
much nails down exactly why I don't bother trying to play console games. The standard cord controllers don't have enough reach to go from my TV to the couch, and wireless never seem to have enough battery life for marathon gaming. While it was possible to keep charged packs available, no indication of when the battery was going to die usually meant it was going to happen at the worst possible time. Eventually, just said screw it and went to PC only. Don't play games very often anymore, but at least the computer is reliable.
But nowadays don't controllers give you a warning that the battery is low, at least my ps4 controller does.
Wireless controllers are a lot better than they used to be. The XBOX One controller can actually work without batteries and a super long cheap USB cable (the kind that won't work to charge).
You can also buy wall chargers specifically designed for the PS3 (not sure about the 4) and plug your remote into a nearby outlet rather than to the console. (The controllers have circuitry that requires a special regulated charger).
As for console vs PC
I generally buy single player "AAA" games on XB-ONE to avoid littering my PC with stuff like DRM and EA Origin. A lot of PC games are also terrible ports. Mortal Kombat X comes to mind.
I tend to buy on PC/Steam otherwise as it's cheaper and you don't have to pay to play multiplayer/coop like you do with Sony/Microsoft.
Well, miraculously, not only picked this up, but started playing it and am very impressed. A completely re-vamped experience over the original from the 90s. Had to get used to the controls, as it is very different from the usual “casual” gaming that i do. Also different from your typical “mario”-esque gameplay. There are instances, especially when enemies are attacking quickly, to forget critical combos. For a while, i was like didn’t Samus have the ability to crouch into a small ball? Only later did i realize that you have to earn that ability. I also like the map feature. I remember playing through the original, and half the time it was like, “Did i already pass through this way?” For me, the circle-pad definitely has a different feel. I guess you get used to it. Such an immersive experience with a superb visually stimulating environment and music that i remember from the original, but, re-scored as if performed by Yanni himself (laughs) If you do play this game, keep watch over the time, as you’ll look up and boom, five hours gone. I started out like a house of fire, whether i see the game through to completion will be interesting to see. My rating as of this point, 10/10. Highly Recommended.
P.S.- The intro where they are explaining your mission and the crew that foraged the alien depths before, reminded me somewhat of the objective statement in the game Operation Neptune for those who remember PC gaming from the days of IBM 286.
Well, just recently picked this up at GameStop, and, so far, viewing it factory sealed has not bothered me (very unlike GalGun), but, we will see once gameplay starts. If it reaches the epitome of tedium, the trash can is waiting... with a new liner! :-D
