More Ni No Kuni. Great game, anyone who has a PS3 and likes RPG games owes it to themselves to play it. Don't let the art style fool you, the game is challenging and deep as hell, and the story is quite dark and mysterious, you'd be surprised how much so as the game goes along.

If you like FF7 or any of the older school RPG gameplay style (overworld map, dungeons/towns spread throughout the map, you get vehicles to fly/drive to cover more distance faster as the game goes on, you have to grind for levels otherwise you will be struggling against bosses, etc), then buy this game immediately. The battle system is different than old school games though, it's a cross between the Tales series and Pokemon, it works great.

I seriously stress anybody who has a PS3 that likes RPG games to get this immediately, I think it flew under the radar for most people (inducing myself until recently). Watch this quick review about it to get an idea of what it's about.

Then in game you can switch on command to which hero you want but the level switches with them ofcourse. Somewhat clunky movement and no real customization is the games downfall imho.

From what i remember about Neverwinter was that i played a mage and the enemie would die but my guy would still be casting spells. It really annoyed me.


Right now DragonsProphet really is the best game iv played in a while.
Yeah I was in the closed beta as well. I'll play through the game once as Cable and decide what I am going to do after that once I experience what the end game is like. It will probably take me a while since I don't get addicted to games like that.

I'm playing a thief and don't have any issues with bugs. Maybe some of the classes still need work I think some aren't even in they are still calling it a beta after all.

Thats probably where i am lacking at, widow mines. I use them... just not very many.

EDIT : Do you think it is worth building an engineer bay in the expansion spot early? or does that hardly delay you?

also my statistics this season are retarded. 84% win vs protoss. Last season i was 42 vs protoss lol.
The eng bay really depends. It can delay if the Zerg is playing extremely greedy and just droning. It can also force them to make zerglings to clear it quicker instead of more drones. Then you just have to worry about the zerglings coming to do damage. And some players will just take their 2nd where their 3rd would normally be if you do that. It is harder to defend but they will only lose a few seconds of mining time. So if it doesn't delay enough you have just wasted those minerals and you run the risk of losing the scouting scv in the process. I prefer to set my worker on patrol in a circle so their worker can't place the base down, and then I pull it before their worker can kill mine.

A fun thing with widow mines is packing 2 in a medivac and dropping/burrowing 1 at the main and natural mineral lines. Especially if Zerg hasn't researched lair yet, it will take a bit before they can see the mine and destroy it. They will have to put a spore crawler down to see it. You should get 1-3 good hits in or at the very least he will pull workers and lose a substantial amount of mining time.

Timing attacks work well against greedy zergs as well. For instance some zergs will go 3 base Mutalisk play and literally make no units other than a few queens for injects and drones. If you scouted that and left before their huge round of muta's come in you win. It's tough if you don't know though. I have done 3 base muta's and made no offensive unit until like 10-11 minutes and I won because my opponent didn't punish me and my economy was far ahead of his.

But just scout a lot. Scout at the beginning, leave your scv near their base and send it in again later, use a scan if you need to if you don't know what their tech choice is. Zerg is reactive, so they can switch tech quickly. They will react to what you are making in mid game. So you need to scout after big engagements that you win to see if they are just doing the same or switching.

The creep kinda sucks. It gives them map vision and their units move quicker on it. Other than wasting scan after scan, some Terrans like to build 1 Raven since it is a detector and then clearing all of the creep tumors as they go across the map.

After putting quite a bit of time into it, I can confirm that Ni No Kuni is the best PS3 exclusive available, better than Uncharted, better than God of War, better than any Sony only game out there and - easily - the best JRPG this generation and quite possibly my favorite JRPG right next to FF7. Simple as that.

Tbh as i was watching the video you posted i kept thinking of FF7 and how this game looks like it keeps alot of the charm of the old school FF games but still making it new and better. Something i wish the new FF games did.

Im going to have to buy this game...

Btw my favorite game ever goes FF7 > Metal Gear Solid > Chrono Cross

(Kingdom Hearts and Legend of Dragoon are also somewhere in the top 10)

The game captures exactly what I missed from FF6-9, while still being modern enough to keep things unique and interesting. It is exactly what FF13 should have been.

The only thing that would hold anyone back from genuinely loving this game is the theme. You have to go into the game
understanding you are playing in a magical world full of unique characters and bright colors/imagination, and the main character is a good-hearted 13 year old. It is not your typical 17 year old emo teen with a giant sword who is trying to find inner peace in a dark and gritty world, in fact it's pretty much the exact opposite which is a great thing IMO, it's very unique and interesting.

Play the game as if you are playing a hardcore RPG made by Pixar, where everything is brightly colored and clean.

Playing Sim City 4. Lost my town when my computer inexplicably froze. Poor Ape City. The people there had so much potential.
