Pros and cons

Postby blackphoenix » Thu Oct 26, 2006 2:52 pm

OK, we've all had enough time to play parts of the game, so I'm just curious as to what everyone likes/dislikes about GU compared to the original 4 games. BE SURE TO MARK SPOILERS AS NEEDED


Like
VA's seem much better than the originals
graphics (duh)
larger root towns
you can respond to the message boards
steam bike

Dislike
No gate out function (except with the warp points)


I'll likely update my posts as I play more 8)

You can reply to the boards(I kinda already knew but it just hit me still)How do you do that?

Sorry thats offtopic. Ontopic:

Like:
Everything, except the tediousness of the news/forums.at the beginning, I was bombared w/ tons of stuff to read thru. Its fine now, but at the beginning, it was alittle much, escpecially when I'm trying to get to the action(Im the type of guy who loves the story o I sat there and read thru just about all of it and watched the videos.

Also, Ihate Salvador's voice on Online Jack. He sounds like garbage.

just about everthing else is cool. Forums and news are cool too, having the vids ad pictures and things, just too much at one time in thebeginning.

Pros:
1. The new battle engine
2. Music
3. Graphic update
4. Humor
5. Quest Shop
6. No more ambushes. Yay!
7. Being able to ride a motorcycle
8. More interaction with the mail and you can get wall paper from the AKupella section. I think that's how you spell it. :lol:
9. How deep the battle engine is.
10. Being able to sneak up on your enemies.
11. Battle Arena.
12. That the game doesn't really require a players guide.

Cons:
1. Can't ride grunty's anymore but love that they are mascot of @Home.
2. Still noticing invisible walls.
3. Wish you could post in the forums.

-You can actually use good skills
-Piros 3 is actually in Gold Armor instead of his gay hair style from the old series
-Avatar Battles
-Arena Battles

-Ryou Book thing is much easier
-PK people to save others
-Battle system is easier
-Quests
-You can actually reply stuff in forums
-Send lovely cards
-Job Extension
-Music
-Game is easier and less time consuming

Cons:
-Voice acting (Only few)
-NEEDS MORE DEBATING FOR THE WORLD:R2 ONLINE GAME!
-Needs more catgirls to join party (NOT TABBY from Roots)
-Can't Data Drain Tri-Edge! XD
-Haseo can't be Strike Gundam MS Girl style dress suited
-Piros 3 needs to be more of Super Robot style designed

You can't? I thought you could. At the very least I'm sure you can in two.

Pros:

- Haseo
- learning skills
- battle mode
- Arena
- the bike
- grunty cards
- ending song
- "Rengeki"
- Graphics


Cons:
- Piros 3
- the way how we store weapons. Example: If I have 2 lv. 1 daggers (without equipping anything), they consume 2 inventory slots, instead of 1 (and putting "XXXXX weapon........2").

Con: Alkaid's voice only sounds good half of the time. The other part, she sounds like an angry Bo.

Con: Agreed about that 'Alkaid' comment, I was about to stab myself when I heard 'Alkaid' finally talk. It was just a really pissed off Saku.... well more pissed off then Saku is. Most of the times the VA uses the Saku voice, which makes 'Alkaid' sound like a little girl.

Aw, now your making me feel like im the only one who's complaining about them not having a Japanese voice over... ._.
Everything else is great about it, though! Except Death Rundy's voice...he sounds so stupid. And WTF at the change in names!?
Alkaid - Yowkow, right? >>
and didn't they change Keyaki's? I remember them saying something about that...unless I'm wrong, because I'm not even close to being done yet!(school) But why'd they do that(if they did)? That's so stupid..

and isn't Balmung back? xD seemed that way anyway, that something-mung guy..

Since the voice acting isn't that bad It dosn't matter that they didn't add it in to me.

i hated the lack of revival items, a partner dies, youyr screwed, i don't know where to get the items for revival, minus trade, oh and that you can't choose if you ant to fight a boss or the symbol thing, or the dungeon, it depends on the words you choose, so i am like looking for a level 50 boss, nuthin.
