Last I played the game was on Monday, December 2nd. Here’s the write-up for that session. :3 Spoilers~~~~
Taking a break from posting about Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen since I’ve spent most of last week blowing through Ys: Memories of Celceta. I do have an entry typed up on another computer for DA though so I’ll upload that later. :3
I’ve been playing the game on Hard mode since I recall Normal being kind of a walk in the park where I didn’t have to use potions very much nor did I die very often. But it’s a different case with this difficulty mode! I’m surviving the bosses and the large enemies thanks to potions. ^^;;; It’s only cuz of them that I was able to best Duren in the duel. XD However, the worst battle I had was with the Tower of Providence boss’ first form. Holy crap. I was hardly able to avoid any of its beams. ^^; I wish I could Flash Guard and Flash Move at will.
But! I only got Game Over once so far. XD And it was only because I was stupid and got too close to an attack by one of the large enemies in the Forest of Dawn. 9__9 I dread to think how absolutely terrible I’d play against the optional boss in there. XD It was a pain in the ass already on Normal.
Anyhoo, I’m currently finishing up a Danan quest and also beefing up equipment for the fights in the final dungeon. IIRC, when I was playing the Japanese version, I actually left the final dungeon to reinforce stuff and then went back in.
Spoilers, of course! Read More…
Ahoy! I started my New Game+ yesterday with the determination of completing the side quests that I missed from the previous playthrough. They are: Arousing Suspicion, Duchess in Distress, and Bad Business. I’m not sure how people can NOT miss Bad Business since it sounds like you have to enter Madeleine’s Shop to trigger it? I rarely ever go into it even though I’m always in that vicinity because of The Black Cat.
I’m also out to max out some of the knowledge of locations for my Pawn. Actually, I might not be able to since I think 2 out of the 4 require post-game quests and I’m not sure I’m going to stick around until the very end. But if I intend to get the trophies I missed during the very last part of the game then I’ll probably have to. .___.
Anyway, I may be updating this post through the day since I’m playing the game now. XD
