        Creaminstaller works just fine. They both do the same thing. Creaminstaller just makes it easier. As long as the game isn't using SecureDLC, you can use it. Sometimes you may need to download the dlc from cs.rin from "clean steam files" and then use the installer, other times you can just use the installer

        The majority of the Palekana adherents are just normal people who don't know anything about the criminal aspect and simply believe in the cosmopolitan and selfless doctrine that's given to them. When they see that Bryce has been exploiting them and that there's an alternative person around which to organize, they'll gravitate to Lani. The village on Nele Island was the primary source of embedded operatives for Bryce's criminal ambitions with the most unquestioning of the Palekana orphans being taken to the island to sustain the village and supplement the process.

        he basically owns hawaii so why would he care if a few followers get butthurt when he probably has more zealots than regular followers

          Bryce absolutely does not have more Zealots than regular Palekana followers, as the Zealots are selected from the pool of followers and a only small number were born and/or raised on Nele Island. It's simply a gameplay contrivance that you can run into unlimited groups of Palekana Zealots during a certain point in the story.

      this is the yellow paint thing but made by actually competent designers.

      • 4 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        And it's an asset that you can drop one of anywhere you want without it being obvious that it serves a function somewhere else. In the case of the yellow paint assets, you can't reuse a ladder and just block it off to show it's not accessible because the yellow paint is an overriding indicator of the asset being interactable. Whereas in these games you'll often see staircases that look like they lead somewhere, but they have a chain or bar blocking them, which is enough to direct the player elsewhere.

        The best thing you can do when it comes to designing your environments is to make everything that a player might try to interact with interactable and everything that you don't want to be interactable something the player won't try to interact with. And if it's something you do want them to interact with but think they might not try to, make effort to subtly draw the player's eye in that direction so they realize they can.

      It's not terrible. You're missing out on a quantity of stat points about as big as the accessory items give. Unless you go out of your way to unlock everything in every job, then it starts to get substantial. But for normal gameplay, it's not a serious problem, and it will probably be patched soon.

            No one's done so as far as I know. The only ones affected are -ATK, -DEF, and -MAG that I know of. Buffs work fine and both -ACC and -EVA works fine. Buffs give a 10/30/50% buff depending on the stage while the debuffs do -1/3/5% which is clearly not intentional.

        You probably want to do it in NG due to the unique items and if you want them again in NG+ you have the option to do it there.

        A guy here was doing it. He said just get Freelancer up a bit (So like 30) because the tutorial fights are ridiculous unless you use battle items, otherwise it's way more balanced than 7 and you get absurd amounts of EXP, JP, and money per fight compared to 7. We're talking main story fights against 2 enemies giving you 300k EXP and JP when they normally give you like 200 while in 7 it was just a flat 10k per enemy on top of their original EXP/JP amount.

        I didn't bother with post game stuff in 7 so I wouldn't know, the game tells you that you can switch difficulties whenever in NG+ in 8 but as far as I can tell the option isn't there on plain NG Premium Adventure

      You probably want to do it in NG due to the unique items and if you want them again in NG+ you have the option to do it there.

      has anyone played legend new game +? I remember 7 legend was a huge stat check and you needed levels in freelancer and a few other jobs to make it through intro sections. If 8's legend is anything similar, I think those stats would be necessary

                The team runs into the adjacent construction site because there are too many guys on the ground floor of the theater for them to deal with (they say so before they run off). These reasons don't make the scenes flow any better though. Chapter 11 still feels like the party is just running around like headless chickens, and the last parts where Yamai has to be the one to tell Ichiban to talk to his mom because the rest of the party is off in the other room for some reason, then you teleport halfway across the map to be at the beach for the talk with Akane, are awkward. After all of the emotional build up to this talk and the reveal from Akane that she knew all along about the baby swap and Sawashiro had been keeping tabs on Ichiban even before he joined the Arakawa family, that beach scene was so damn short and lackluster.

          The non-domestic markets are considered during the development process.
          Something like the weird social status and representation of the owner of Earth Angel wouldn't be handled the same way it used to be because western markets don't have the same context and don't really have equivalent terminology or perspective.

          Remember, that even if you:

          Saved an entire neighborhood,
          Played a central part at the dissolving of two of the biggest Yakuza Clans in all of Japan,
          Helped hundreds of people with your hero stints,
          Uncovered corruption at the highest echelon of government,

          Did you pay attention to the story and how it ends? Saeko's problem with Ichiban wasn't that he wasn't good enough, it's that he was treating the concept of a romantic relationship like a transaction instead of just sharing his feelings. Saeko's Drink Link and the post-credits scene literally say that's what happened, word for word.

    Alright, done with the Crazy Eats grind. It's not as bad once you get a route down but it is about an hour and a half to two hours of grinding for every weapon, armor piece, blueprints, Street Surfer skin, and all the one-time purchases. You probably won't even have the 1000 stunts until that point.

    Here's an overview of the route I was doing starting from the player position. Leaves you with about 20ish seconds left on the clock and every clear is about 40k points. You can make roughly five mistakes on a "perfect" run and still clear it just fine. When you get to the #1 spring you should have roughly 45kish points give or take a thousandish. When you get to the #2 spring it should be about 50kish.

    The general strategy is do do left/right spins as it doesn't gain you distance allowing you to Excellent deliver more. If you're about to land on a car you can also spam O and it sometimes lets you jump off of them and destroy them without crashing.

      This is clearly implying that he's going to survive to the next game, right?

      Lost Judgment wasn't about the "Country wanting to kill a man for touching a girl's panties." It didn't actually happen for one, and two, sexual harassment on public transportation is still a significant problem and it's natural that the general population would approve a harsh punishment for it to hopefully reduce the frequency of such crime.
      Infinite Wealth isn't about Ichiban's proposal being misogynistic or anything like that, It's that he has no social skills and no life experience because he was in prison for half of his life and that despite his indomitable character and relentless optimism, he needs to learn how to remove himself from the unflinchingly loyal and self sacrificing mindset he was raised and came of age under.

        Kiryu will only prove to be more popular because of pre-existing Kiryugays and the fact that Ichiban gets the short end of the stick in this game.

      The problem with Ichiban's proposal wasn't that anyone thought he was being genuinely sexist, but that he proposed at an inappropriate time and mindlessly spewed every classic, obligatory marriage promise he could think of instead of thinking realistically about what kind of future he or Saeko actually want to have.

        He spent more of his adult life in prison than he did as a free man. Of course he's awkward, that doesn't mean he gets to brush it off and not learn from it, which is how he was treating it until his time in Hawaii changed his perspective.

            I don't think the proposal and its fallout actually take up more than 30 minutes of the story let alone hours. It's put aside pretty quickly for the Tatara Channel's accusations and only comes up briefly in some of the Drink Links, primarily Saeko's, and even then, it's there to explain her actual problem with Ichiban.

            Holy frick I'm stupid. So that's what inheriting skills mean. So you can literally add skills you unlock from other classes with no draw backs?

            If it's like the first game, only SOME skill becomes permanent. It had a red dot next to it I think. If you learn it, you can use it anytime.

            I don't remember that being a thing in the first game albeit I didn't use other classes . Now I just need to focus on elements and give each party member element skills

            It happened automatically in 7, but you couldn't choose which skills got inherited and most of them weren't the most useful and usually just became clutter. 8 fixes that by limiting the number of skills you can inherit between jobs and letting you choose which ones you want to keep for yourself. When your bond is full with a character, you even get to choose one Kiwami skill to inherit.

            Did they buff freelancer? It feels like a fantastic single target nuker now
            Which is great cause freelancer was my favorite class from 7, even if it was weak

            They did, they switched the stat scaling from being primarily Job level based to primarily character level based and compensated for Freelancer and Dragon of Dojima not using weapons by scaling the base stats by a slightly larger amount than the weapons you're expected to have at that point would on a different job.

      Skill damage is still completely inconsistent. You have light damage attacks that deal more damage than extreme damage attacks. There's no rhyme or reason to what deals the most damage. Half the skills you get don't actually deal any more than the others and are just different animations with the same or lesser effect.

      It's definitely better since you can see what attacks hit where, there's now a bowling pin mechanic, you can get back attacks, Kiryu has styles, enemies now guard and you have to break it, skills now feel like skills instead of one-shot machines, there's strategies you can do with equips now (I have Eric using a cape that gives him evasion on his turn + a hat that gives him 10% more evasion for example), they added more debuffs like Eric's lightning debuff, in general higher tier enemies are way more difficult, there's limit breaks, there's shared moves, etc.

      It's still not perfect as just normal progression can get you leveled pretty crazily even with the diminishing returns, but they actively tried to prevent getting crazy overpowered in general and they priced stuff way better to prevent you buying some of the highest tier stuff right off the bat. Even if you touch minigames it's only for very specific jobs.

        Bowling pin combat is cool and all, but it feels like a shallower version of the brawler formula because of how limiting it is

          While I still don't think it's as fun as the beat 'em up games it's still fun and giving you more to think about which is a welcome addition since it makes it a much better JRPG at the end of the day. You have far more variety like the beat 'em ups but have to deal with stats, effects, positioning of objects, etc.
          7 was so barebones and barely anything mattered whereas here I keep getting into fights in the overworld where I have to care or at the very least think about positioning, and the bosses are so much more fun because of it. You also have enemies with much stronger moves and gimmicks to deal with like that Subjugation-kun near the palm trees who does the missiles at 30% health or the puffer fish healer combo on the beach who does massive aoe damage.

          Yeah that's exactly was pretty much mandatory if you ever wanted to take on the harder endgame content. IIRC, the only ice skill you could have on the boys was the champagne popping attack, the only fire attack was from the chef and the only lightning attack was from the fortune teller job.

      Yes, but you need to increase bond levels to add more skills per character, and only the last slot can inherit Kiwami/Essence of skills. Once you unlock Samurai, have all the males equip it at least once so you can give Burning Arrow to all of them.

      You remember the Korean lady with the pink hair in 7? She's a party member in this one.

      >for no reason
      Presumably, she was trying to get away from the tear gas and being semi-blinded by it she didn't realize that Ei-chan and co. hadn't left.
      The team runs into the adjacent construction site because there are too many guys on the ground floor of the theater for them to deal with (they say so before they run off). These reasons don't make the scenes flow any better though. Chapter 11 still feels like the party is just running around like headless chickens, and the last parts where Yamai has to be the one to tell Ichiban to talk to his mom because the rest of the party is off in the other room for some reason, then you teleport halfway across the map to be at the beach for the talk with Akane, are awkward. After all of the emotional build up to this talk and the reveal from Akane that she knew all along about the baby swap and Sawashiro had been keeping tabs on Ichiban even before he joined the Arakawa family, that beach scene was so damn short and lackluster.

      Sawashiro is just such a weird character.

        Sawashiro knew that Ichiban was Arakawa's real son, and knew that his own son was switched with him, if Masumi Arakawa were to discover this somehow, that would, if nothing else, put him on bad terms with Arakawa and possibly worse as he willingly put Masato Arakawa in the same situation he and Akane had to rely on in desperation and Masato suffered greatly for it.
        By keeping an eye on Ichiban, Sawashiro could be prepared for any unexpected revelations of Ichiban's origin should they happen and prevent them from getting to Arakawa. And the harsh treatment Ichiban got under him seems like it's just how Sawashiro ran things for all the rank and file, and it would be more suspicious to give Ichiban special treatment.

        There's just so much here to do just in chapter 3 alone, it's absurd. There was a guy joking yesterday about not even leaving chapter 3 until you have 100 HP and Eric naturally has over 120 right now it's insane. Ichiban is at 90.

      honestly whatever floats your boat
      Desperados, Martial Artist, Samurai are great damage
      Linebacker has some fun skills for tanking
      Idol is nice to get Healing skills
      Geomancer has a revival skill that's not an essence so it doesn't waste essence inherit slot
      Mistress is probably the only damaging job for females

      For dudes, get Samurai level 1 for Burning
      Arrow and play whatever you want (high attack is good)
      For girls, Night Queen is the best attacker, Geodancer the best healer (Idol is ASS), you also want the buff deleter from Housekeeper.

      In endgame good EX skills to grab are Action Star self heal attack, Linebacker defense buff, Geodancer super heal

      It was a live stream to thousands of people, some of them had to be recording it themselves to reupload anyway. And the evidence was pointed out immediately so it's not like anyone could see that and see the channel suddenly get banned for no reason and not think it was being suppressed. It would become a huge contingent of persistent journalists questions and allegations of things the stream was never going to accuse the Japanese government of doing. Bryce was just overstating the amount of commitment he was getting from his civilian partners because he's lived most of his life around brainwashed yes men.

      The Daidoji hideout was supposed to be uncompromised by Palekana and the gangs. They knew where Yamai operated and if word leaked that Akane was with him, they would have known for sure where she was. The only reason the Daidoji hideout was compromised was that Eiji had the fix in from the start, which was totally unknown to anyone but Ebina at the time.

      >man who runs away from everything calls men cowards for running

      holy shit kiryu is such a shit character

      Kiryu doesn't run from anything, his self esteem is just so bad that he automatically assumes that everyone would be better off without him. So he does everything in his power to remove himself from the lives of the people he cares about to "spare them the trouble"
      The culmination of his arc in 8 is that he finally accepts that he fricked up by not accepting his role as the Fourth Chairman of the Tojo Clan.

      Sujimon involves battle mechanics and the actual game world instead of staring at bars going across the screen for 6+ hours. 5 star island also only takes about 7-8 hours and its income production is so pitifully low that you don't have to go out of your way to do it, which is another plus compared to that garbage trash in 7 that made you waste a half hour of your time every time you wanted to buy 1 weapon or armor piece

        Sujimon just takes too long, and the balance seems off. A 100 attack power fire would do more damage to fire than a 70 attack power frost would. It feels like attack power is the best thing to go for. Catching minigame is beyond fricking tedious, and the intro/outro parts of the battles themselves linger too long. Just fricking get into it and out.

    its great they got the entire 7 party back and even added seonhee tbh
    I'm tired of this franchise cycling characters out because their actors don't have time. The game would infinitely suck more without Adachi, Nanba, Zhao, and Seonhee

          Mack should be a party member. Make his default a photographer class that focuses on debuffs sort of like how Sazh was great at SAB. Then pull an Ichiban and give him a second exclusive job (Make that 9's gimmick) which would be a Beast Tamer for the Dr. Dolittle joke since he's Eddie Murphy.

          I tried the True Millennium Tower in 7 but I give up. Amon is too much bullshit. You'd think grinding 2 fricking jobs to 99 would be enough but no. Frick this fight.

          Equip the anti-Death talisman on as many members as you can. Slaughter him until you reach the point where he summons the gang. Do like two Essences and then have Ichiban summon Mr. Masochist. You win, there is literally nothing that can make you lose at that point since you're invincible until Ichiban moves three times.

            I hate it cause the whole fight. Including the summons is super fricking easy but then he just fricking nukes everyone with orbital laser and I can't survive after that since 2 or 3 members who aren't ichiban are pretty much guaranteed to die and then Ichiban just gets gangbanged to death by the goon squad.

              At that point you should only have like one person left besides him and at low health at that. How are you having that much trouble? Ichiban and Saeko both have full heals after all.

                Should I ignore Amon when he summons and take them out first? Is that the idea?
                > Ichiban and Saeko both have full heals after all.
                Heals don't really matter when you go from max health to 0 before they can even get a turn.

                >Should I ignore Amon when he summons and take them out first? Is that the idea?
                Yes, that's sort of the entire gimmick. You're supposed to get them close to half health which is like two-ish Essences, pop Mr. Masochist, get the Poundmate attack from each one once you drop them to half health, and then kill them off. Majima first due to his low health, then Kiryu also due to his low health, and then Saejima.

                If you're about to die and they're not at the threshold yet just pop Mr. Masochist and save yourself the headache. On my second run (First one died to all three spamming because I didn't know they would) I even had Saejima at over half health when I got the other two down past half way before Mr. Masochist wore off so I had to scramble and deal with Saejima using his attack and try healing it off before the Orbital Laser happened.

                Well frick it guess I'll try that tomorrow since it's 2 in the morning. I might just grind another job to 99 cause I've got work in the morning anyway so I can't do anything too focus requiring. Feel like it would be easier if I just had more defence and HP.

    >ENG Dub Bryce sounds fine

    >both are speaking English
    Maybe it would have been jarring to have the English VA do the english part, then swap to the Japanese VA for the Japanese part but god so many of the voice actors have the worst accent

            You do know that's his real name, right? It's not just a username. While I do think they miscast him and didn't have a fair audition process on top of that, I don't think he deserves so much of the blame. He did a decent job in everything else he's been cast in and the worst parts of his performance as Kiryu are a consequence of bad direction that isn't exclusive to him.

      Bryce talked the most in english compared to the others, it was really rough.
      Did Danny Trejo really recorded some lines? I haven't really noticed

      Coincidally, I discovered that Donald Duck's Japanese VA is Akiyama's. It feels fricking weird. I'm just imagining Akiyama telling Kiryu that there are ingredients around, now.

    I've assumed this game is irremediable trash and tried to convince myself this is a completely different game feat. Kiryu. I'm on chapter 6 and enjoying it a lot.

    Why the frick is there little to no information about in game items in this game?
    Why is it impossible to find an active discussion on this game?
    It feels like nobody is playing it.

      What do you even need to know about?
      You just upgrade your gear (you can check the quality from the map) and you get random shit everywhere, and in subquests.
      The annoying part is the specific gifts for some npcs though.
