I watched my son play Oblivion a LOT. And at the time I thought the game was rather cold, compared to the charm of JRPGs like Final Fantasy. The NPC chat was what seemed cold to me, and the plot nowhere near as emotional as JRPGs. My son tried to get me to play it, but I watched a lot of it, and I also bought him a lot of the expansion packs so I didn't want to buy it all again for myself when I bought it all once and never played it!

I think the graphics look more like Oblivion in keeping the "look" of the series, but actually they seem more like the graphics used in Dragon Age 2. I don't think they look dated as some people have said. It's that they kept the look of the series consistent which is a really good move for a popular game, you don't want to change it too much for the original fans, but the graphics should of course be more updated which I think they ARE.

Just getting back from England, if I go again I'm definitely gonna bring a cell phone with some internet or a better tablet/notebook next time I go. Would be easier to call and text people, don't think it worked too well overall not to have a better way to message people when on the trains etc.

I read about the graphical issues for PS 3 in Gamefaqs reviews and also on the US, where buyers have been also writing reviews. The PS 3 version has lower star ratings than the Xbox version.

All these website upgrades are a ploy to make us buy new computers in order to view more and more video ads. It's all about advertising, and getting us to buy stuff. The actual sites themselves really never change a whole lot. And the more the sites upgrade, the more people drop using them anymore. People are buying new phones for the internet rather than a whole new computer.

I will definitely be getting this game, had a hard time not buying it in England, but I'm reading now that it has graphical issues on the PS 3. Will maybe get the 360 version. My son is playing this too. He played all of Oblivion and the expansion packs so this one is a must-have for him.

hm, I bought this game and haven't started it yet. Maybe I'll just leave it in the wrapper. This isn't sounding good at all.

Well what happened with Japan was that Level 5 gave everybody a rebirth ticket after the long PSN outage. That one ticket did count as a rebirth, and I got the extra skill points. After that I bought 2 more tickets on PSN, and those tickets didn't count as a rebirth, they only redistributed the points. As of now, the skill reset tickets only allow you to redo your skills. What you CAN do though is get the trophy for mastering all 8 skill trees via tickets. But you won't get the extra points to spend on skills and attributes.

By the time you hit level 80, you'll have enough skill points to max 3 skill trees. Some of the skills are locked until you finish errands to obtain those skills, so be sure to save points for those.

Ally, your WKC 2 review is really excellent!

Red, please look me up again for questing when you are GR 16, and have finished the game and the bounties and as many of the errands as you can. It will be fun to run WKC 2 quests. Just buy gear in the shops and then use the gear you get from doing the bounty hunts, it's better than what you can bind. Don't worry too much about binding anything right now, it's not necessary to beat the game. The game gives you the gear you need in the shops and in the guild bounties.

I'm still playing WKC 2, am GR 29 on the EU version, and GR 28 on the Japan version. Mostly been playing the EU version, making as many GR 26+ pieces as I can and leveling them up completely. I'm also working on the binding trophy.

Final Fantasy XII / Re: What music reminds you of FFXII?
« on: October 04, 2011, 08:47:38 PM »
I got to a point with FFXII and with White Knight Chronicles where I've turned the game music off. Battle music especially gets grating the longer I play a game. WKC 2 is nice because you can opt to turn off the music but the battle sounds, voices and sound effects are retained.

Otherwise I often will watch a movie or TV series on my computer while doing grinding work on a game.

To get to the portal, look for broken parts in the fence along the cliff edges, where you can jump down.

Leonard is going to be behind the rest of your party. He can knight up and use Turn Break (triangle button used when boss powers up) which staggers a boss. He can be switched out for the final fight in favor of your more leveled up people.

There is little to no reason to do the WKC 1 quests at all in WKC 2 unless you really want the trophy for 100 S ranks. I haven't yet done the majority of the WKC 1 quests. The materials dropped by the monsters are available in story mode and quickly become obsolete after GR 18. I say you quit too soon and should have got to where you're running only WKC 2 quests. But you never really enjoyed the online all that much anyway so if you didn't feel motivated in WKC 1 to play all the time, probably the new quests won't do much to change that.

IMO the US version really got nothing. All the US got were online tickets and avatar customization items. Still missing are the Faria Georama parts, and not to mention that we don't even have the georama update. I don't have a WKC 1 file to import to the EU version and I cannot even buy WKC 1 geo parts to put in my WKC 2 town. We don't have the geo monster statues that add to town stats. Japan also has different forum boards: there is a board for on-topic game topics, and another board tab for off-topic chat only.

My friend bloodbath came by the library yesterday where I work to show me the Brady guide. I was able to see that the armors/weapons that will be coming when the disk content is unlocked is up to the Madoras weapon quest which is the last quest I surmised on gamefaqs that we will get. If the Brady guide is any verification, then I conclude we will have extra quests up to what Japan got as of January 2011 but no further.

As far as I'm concerned, the WKC 2 EU and US versions are nothing at all like the Japan version. To me the online just seems like WKC 1 with a few extra quests, not really at all the WKC 2 as I know it on the Japan version. Because of so much that's missing, especially BASIC  stuff like town updates to include the higher level harvest items, I have no confidence whatsoever that we will be getting anything more. The geo town updates not happening is especially troubling. Most people on Gamefaqs are focusing on guilds and tracking the new quests Japan is getting, but to me these things are even more remote because of the missing town update. With something so basic not happening, I have no reason at all to hope for more support and new material than the handful of additional quests on the disk.  I really don't feel like the WKC 2 we got is going to ever be like the Japan version. Which is really sad, because it looks and feels totally different on the Japan version.

Unfortunately you probably didn't get to the new WKC 2 quests as they are higher GR than you attained. A lot of the fun is finding friends to play with and enjoying making the new costumes and weapons as well as getting the new quests.
