Probably posted in the wrong subforum, as it were.

Anyway... this is something. Considering who Lynx is...

A never-ending work, huh.

It's no problem, heh.

I don't use a site like that. Simply being aware what I've beaten or not. Plus whatever I may want to play through again or so.

Though I like both games a lot in terms like story, music, characters, etc, what gives IV the edge for me is the gameplay. Sometimes, I just like the simplicity of defined character roles. I sometimes feel overwhelmed when characters are mostly blank slates you can customize, since then building up a defined team is more of a hassle. Unless you have it all planned out beforehand, that is. So yeah.

Hmm, maybe I will. Though I have other priorities in my gaming backlog as it is. Currently I want to finish my current Crusader Kings II playthrough... but I keep getting distracted.

I like the game too. Though my most favorite is IV. Yes, it's steampunk. Even if a good deal of the punk is magiteck, hehe.

Ahaha, I see. Well, what version are you playing again? Usually for the SNES and PSX versions, people recommend getting the sword. Yeah, you can get Ultima from the Paladin Shield. For the GBA version and beyond, since you can keep playing after beating Kefka, you can get the Ragnarok by stealing it from the final battle, so it's better to get the Esper. It depends if you really plan to use the sword often. Or if you want to go straight for Lightbringer. Personally, for completion's sake I'd say go for the Esper... but if it's in any pre Soul Shrine version, then yeah, go for the sword.

Ah, no no, there's no need. Since the endings depend on when you beat Lavos. You know, since you can fight it pretty much at any time once you reach the End of Time. And through the Telepod before that.

I've been meaning to play through FFVI myself. Though I've yet to do so, haha.

Well, it's not like it's a bad thing to have Float. Unless you run with Gaia Gears, being immune to Earth attacks is more often a boon than a weakness. Stray Cat is a good Rage for Gau, at least during the WoB. Since the special attack, Cat Scratch, is a decent powered non-elemental physical attack. Those are Blue Mages. The ones that can use enemy abilities, or Blue Magic. Or Lores, as VI named them. Red Mages are those who can wield both White and Black Magic and also can deal physical attacks decently enough. Jack-of-all-Traders Masters-of-None, basically.

True. Though all you need is a single run through NG+ to get them all, so it's not that complicated.

When it comes to Gau and his Rages, it comes down to what Rages are ideal for any given situation. The big difference between him and Strago and his Lores is that Rages actually turn Gau into the monster he's copying when it comes to the gameplay. If the monster absorbs fire attacks, then Gau will absorb them too. If the monster flies, then he gains the Float status. And so on and so on. Lores are just one more spell list, but one you can use freely and is versatile, since Gau becomes uncontrollable when he's using a Rage, as well only having access to a single special attack. You can cheese the game with Gau, as it were. The hassle is getting the required Rages for easy strategies.

Haha, me neither. I've yet to get a full roster in Cross. This reminds me I still need to finish my NG+ of Trigger. Which I'm doing so to get the Achievements in the Steam version, mostly for completion's sake as well.

Well, back when Xenogears came out there was like this planned overarching six-part grand storyline. Those plans were scrapped, but signs of them still shine through. Like, Xenogears was Episode V, Xenosaga is episodes I through III, and the Torna DLC of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has elements of what would've been Episode IV. Something like that, been long since I last looked up about the original Xeno plans.

Anyway, the connections between each part of the Xeno series are faint, but supposedly it's all interconnected still. Who knows. This probably should be answered by someone more knowledgeable with the Xeno franchise.

Oooh, Gau and his rages. That's gonna take a while to fill up, haha.

The only Xenoblade game I have is Chronicles X. Only did the first chapters, started doing the Red Lobster sidequest... then pretty much haven't continued since.

Oh, haha, I know quite a few people who are fans of the XC games. Haven't seen them complain much over such things. At least definitely not over battle/cutscene discrepancies.

I can agree on the "winning the battle meant nothing" being annoying. The impossible battles not so much, at least when it's fast to tell when it's a thing. That said, figuring out if it's one where winning does change something but losing isn't a Game Over anyway...

So you would consider it was Doreen herself who warped the pendant out of the Palace? Or at least guided it back to the party after drifting out and into the ocean...?

Well, that was understandable to a degree.


If we consider the sparkle that leaves Crono and comes to rest on the floor nearby to be pendant, then Magus gets warped out before he could do such a thing, since the sparkle remains near Schala afterwards.

That said, the pendant was already with the party before being brought into the hut, so something did happen to bring it over from the depths of the ocean back to them. Whether Magus or something else.

I'm gonna guess it would definitely be some other scenario than saving them at the Fall or whatever resulted from that (since it's the FoG that led to Lucca turning her home into an Orphanage). Also, if I remember correctly, there was another info stating Break was going to be like an all-star cast team up, so this rescue thing sounds like it would be early game stuff, or mid-game at the most.
