The Last To Post Wins!

Recommended Posts

"Here, use this knife. It's the one I plan on assassinating you with. Super sharp."
"You're a quick study, though. I guess he's learned how to use a knife. Alright, let's kill him!"
- one character in Dragon Star Varnir, trying to win me over. It's working.

Dragon Star Varnir ramped up its difficulty to quite the ridiculous levels recently. Even normal battles are ball-busters, to say nothing of the bosses. One boss I fought earlier could attack FOUR TIMES in one turn. Even the normal enemies are starting to attack twice or even three times now. Holy hell, this game does not pull any punches, does it?
Neither does the story, btw. I am absolutely in love with the game right now, even if the gripes are starting to pile up a bit (mostly pertaining to the battle system). More on that when I'm done. I think I'll be writing a "review" for this one, because I have quite a lot to say about it, I believe.

Also, is it just me, or does the Dragon Awakening form of Zephy (the protagonist) kinda make him look like a demonic male version of Black Heart?

I didn't either. Tbh, i've got a lot of quests unfinished in Atelier Ryza. Maybe i'll go back to them one day.

Same.

So i got the boss to like 30% HP and then it just decided to kaboom and wipe out my entire party. I'm done lmao. For real this time. I still liked the game but i've already looked up the normal and true endings. Escha and Logy time is coming up soon.

Oof.

Right? So I'm not alone in thinking that.

Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, just something that has been on my mind ever since I first saw that.

Completed Xenosaga III. The final boss is really easy, I think Red Testament is much more difficult to beat than the final boss. My party is around level 60. Not a bad playthrough.

So Byleth dropped in Smash today and man, she's mad fun. I can't think of a single character i've broken more shields with than with Byleth. In terms of how fun she is in comparison to the other DLC fighters, she's the second funniest character to play. Joker and Terry are too technical for me, Banjo is Banjo and Hero's fucking hilarious.

Also Byleth's skins are clean and so are her victory screens. Definitly maining her along with Zelda who actually recieved substantial buffs! LONG HAVE I WAITED!!!

That was probably intentional tbh. Compile Heart seems like the type of people to do that.

Oof indeed. I went online and there's like 50 threads on people getting stuck on Fortress so it's safe to say i'm not the only one.

Unrelated but i did some digging. Dusk Logy and Mysterious Logy are two different people. Not sure why they chose Logy of all people to be a "multiple". Appearently Hagel also shows up outside of Arland.

I cheesed both the final boss and Red Testament because i did the Erde Kaiser sidequest line to get Erde Kaiser Sigma, which just deletes the game. Equip the Moon Badge on Momo and watch her just win.

I played with Byleth a bit, and finished the Spirit board. A bit slow for my tastes (I usually prefer fast Characters, with Marth/Lucina being my main). Hits hard though. Like lol you can kill with Aymr at 30%

And any move that involves Amyr just deletes shields. Byleth deals a lot of shield damage but the Amyr moves in particular. If you shield her Down Smash or her Dair, your shield either becomes an M&M or it breaks.

Soooo, my absolute favorite boss from Trails of Cold Steel 1 just appeared in Dragon Star Varnir.

Makes you wonder where Falcom was in MegaNep VII.

At this point, I am half-expecting Nyala, VFD or any of the Three Spears to show up.

Most likely, yeah. I like callbacks like this, honestly.

Huh, interesting.
Hagel appearing outside of Arland would explain where he went in Lulua (that, or he died of old age).

The first or second?

I'd say, much as I'd like to play a game like that... I'd probably go straight for the second one.

I would rather not do this, since it takes the enjoyment out of the game.

Hagel is mentioned by Cole to be traveling. But at any rate, each version of Hagel would be different.

Looking it up, apart from Arland, Hagel shows up in the Atelier Iris Trilogy and in Atelier Lydie & Suelle.

I personally find it hilarious when you can break the game and cheese.

There are actually 3 Falcom Dragons in that game

One from Sky, one from CS1 and the last from CS3.

You probably already fought the one from sky

This one

 

On another note, my Flayn has muscles. Alot of muscles. 25 STR lmao. I could proably reclass her to Sword Master and she would do a good job. Alas, i need a dancer

As for Leonie

This is my favorite thing to do in games. Sweet, delicious cheese!

Like that one boss in MegaNep VII that you can't damage with non-elemental attacks until you break his cape. Throw Rom and/or Ram at him = ultimate cheese.

Interesting! So I'll get a glimpse of what a CS3 boss will look like before actually playing that game? Neat!

And yes, I fought the one from that screenshot already. Almost gave me a heart attack when I saw that the thing was level 60 while my characters where in the low-mid 20s.
How I won that battle is anyone's guess, because I have no f***ing clue.

Levels in this game are no indication of what level you should be. Especially when playing on higher difficulties.
