I would like Rogue Galaxy, it's not so much a grind-fest as it's long distances between points in the game, so I see Bram's point. Later on you can kind of cheese the fights (Simon murders everything), but there's still a lot of travelling.

Its been a long time, but the major drawback is the fact that the final boss battle has a different stage for each character in the game. So you can't really cheese your way through the game without getting a though time during the final boss battle.

Feel free to try a playthrough to test it out, but I can't feel but think that this game isn't made to be played in these kind of events.


Also if its going to be DoC I'd say we might have more fun if we allow some training beforehand. We do need to agree on the difficulty settings and normal settings (mainly the target management system).

Personally i play with manual targeting and with adjusted camera speed. For the marathon speedrun i suggest semi auto and play on normal or easy, for a challenge we can go hard mode.

We should avoid Hard Mode. Even Normal might be too hard (can't even remember what difficulties there were). Remember Kingdom Hearts II? Even Standard Mode was pretty challenging for a speed run.

And I think we should train beforehand. I've beat the game only once and that was over 5 years ago.

for kingdom hearts 2 standard is only hard for certain bosses for speedruns and DoC doesn't matter that much with speedruns since damage depends on where you hit

yeah and thats why we need to decide if we go full manual, semi auto or automatic with the aiming.

Your not the only one who hasn't played that game in a while :D

But yea then I'd say we play it on normal mode with the aim system on semi automatic, which would be the default settings if I remember correctly. Apart from maybe a few "hard" moments in the game these settings should be more than fine, and we don't want to make it to easy I'd guess :P

Compared to the other 2 games we've done this game should be the shortest of them all, so we might make it to the end this year :P



It seems my personal summer holiday will be in the week of the 4th of August.

Hey people, do you need more streamers for the marathon? I was thinking about playing Bayonetta. Depending on the timeslot I could do either a normal playthrough, or a speedrun (speedrun takes about 3 hours).
