I was just about to hit send on Beyond Good & Evil, but just remembered I heard something about a sequel actually happening. Woo hoo!

I would say physical copy for sure, if it's only ten bucks difference.

A few wise decisions (New buys!)

Good choice picking up Yakuza 4. That series is great. I can't wait for the next one (didn't bother with the recent zombie one though I'll admit).

Binary Domain surprisingly good!

Yeah I really enjoyed this one too. It was really tough though, for me anyway. There was a hell of a lot of swearing on my part during boss battles, ha ha. I think Vanquish was better though, but this was still great enough that I finished it.

This is gonna be so great! I didn't know about the FFX-2 addition until your post, so thanks :]

It's the little details that makes a difference

Weather effects and day/night cycles are some of the most enjoyable parts of games like Fallout 3 and Skyrim. You really get immersed into those worlds when these systems are well implemented.

I went back to this game a few weeks ago after a break of at least a year. I had quit on a bossfight (Xord) and had forgotten much of the battle system, so Xord kicked my ass pretty quick. It was hard to see what was happening so I blamed the low def graphics (no doubt I probably just need to grind a little), but you mentioned they look worse on a HD TV so that probably added to it.

I probably need to start again from the beginning. I'm not that far into it.

Anyway, great post. I wanna go back to XC experience those weather effects!

FFXIII - Brynhildr Goes Down

Posted on 03/21/2013 at 09:41 PM | Filed Under Blogs

Somebody on a forum (maybe here?) recently mentioned about FFXIII that they got to the final boss and got killed in three seconds or something, and was so disgusted they walked away and didn't go back. I seem to be almost halfway into the game, so a long way until I find out about that boss, but I wasn't gonna let Brynhildr force me to quit. I wanna get up to the point I've read about where you get dropped in the open world with total freedom all of a sudden. It was from a totalplaystation review I printed out last week...

FFXIII - Brynhildr Goes Down

Yeah Sazh gets Haste pretty late, although I did switch over from focussing on his Commando Paradigm to Sentinel in the Crystarium, in order to get more de/buffs, so I probably could have got Haste earlier. And as for Hope getting it faster, the thing with the Brynhildr fight is you've only got access to Sazh and Vanille at that point.

Yeah you're right about autobattle being good for most regular enemies, but still, as you know the further into the game you get, the more complex it gets, even with normal fights. I read some criticism of FFXIII recently, the person basically saying FFXIII is shit because all you do is hit a button to fight - it's boring. That may be true for the first few hours but it's only like that to ease you into what becomes a pretty deep and complex battle system. If all FFXIII was about battle-wise was 'autopilot', I sure as hell wouldn't have had any trouble with Brynhildr.

Anyway, thanks again for your comments. They really helped me out :]
