Valkyrie Elysium

I just finished the demo; I'm having a lot of fun but I hardly see any threads here talking about it and when there is it's just shit-posting. Did anyone else have fun playing the demo? Did anybody get the game early yet?

      I can handle a black if it's

      c.)Not an ugly, afro'd, bulging eye moron
      Think Shiva from Resident Evil.
      I can handle that.

    I liked the demo a lot, too. I'm interested to see how the skill trees expand over the course of the game and whether or not the blocking/parry system gets any more involved. As far as the demo is concerned, parrying felt less a primary tactic to tackle enemies and more of a secondary tool for if you end up getting mobbed by a lot of enemies. I also enjoyed the overall structure of the missions. It wasn't anything special, but it was meaty enough for me that I could see myself doing it a few times.

    I played on Hard and the difficulty felt fine. I would've liked a harder difficulty, but I feel like that may not be a meaningful mode until you unlock all your abilities. Having said all of this, I would be surprised if it was a lengthy game. Already in the demo you can unlock 1/5th of your skill trees. While there may be more features that get unlocked as you progress through the game, I expect the demo will be a good representation of the final game, just bigger.

    I was also a bit impressed with the boss designs. While they were easy, they showed tactics and strategy would help. I can see how they wouldn't necessarily be simple bullet sponges, but they're not elaborate experiences either. I think I would enjoy a boss rush mode where you get to fight bosses and try to defeat them with as much efficiency as possible.

    Right now, I'm busy with DioField which I'm enjoying a lot, so I'll have to see about grabbing VE whenever I'm done with that. And I like to take my time with games unless they're very addicting.

        I'm only about 1/3rd of the way through according to Playstation's In-Progress feature. I think if you enjoyed the demo, you'll like the game. The demo represents what I've played of the game well. Will you get $60 of enjoyment out of it? I think that's the question.

        As far as game mechanics go, I'm pretty happy with it. Not a hard game, but still one with lots of options and choices. I find I spend a lot of my game in the game preparing my party members for battle. The systems in the game aren't exactly complex, but they're not simple either.

        At the start of the game, your weapons have 3 skills assigned to them. One is a class skill anyone of the class will have whenever they're in battle and the other 2 change depending on which weapon you equip. Now, each of those 2 skills can be upgrade themselves via an upgrade system that enhances the skills with longer ranges, more damage, debuffs, buffs, etc. That requires a special currency. There is also a skill tree that unlocks new weapons you can purchase that have different combinations of those same skills. There's also an upgrade system for the "Summons" in the game. And since you can pair each of your 4 man team members up, you essentially bring in 8 party members, 2 skills per member or 4 in each pair along with your class skill. Along with your Summons and their skills, it's important not to have too much overlap in skills so that each tool brings in a useful skill into battle.

        There's also a personal upgrade system per party member that makes each one unique. Pic related is said upgrade menu. The result is not just a class system where you have a Tank, Mounted Unit, Physical Ranged and Magic class, but a unique "build" for each character. And I'm missing a few other things, but I'm enjoying exploring the systems the game has.

        As far as the story goes, we'll see how it pans out. And I'm also at max character for the post.

          At some point not long after SSDs and I had the internet speed to download dozens of gigs of video games in less than an hour, digital started making a lot of sense to me. The pandemic didn't do my physical collection any favors either. But it also doesn't help that a lot of the games I play these days are service games. The one and done games are kind of rare and even if I do get them, there's usually DLC or online or something these days. I think the last physical game I got was RE Village for my PS5.

      >I would be surprised if it was a lengthy game.
      There are nine chapters with sidequests/backtracking, and then the final boss, so yeah, not very long. The Main Quest trophy tracker says I'm 33% done after Chapter 3 and my playtime is about 8 hours, so my final time will probably be around 24hrs, which is about what I've heard from others. I can see more replayability in beating it on multiple difficulties, like VP. Completing all quests/collectibles pads it out, too, which I'm doing as I go. Plus the free Hilde DLC comes November.

      Can you play as other characters in battle or can you only control the valkyrie?

      Valkyrie only, the Einherjar are summons that last 15-60 seconds depending on your settings

          "Boring ARPG" is subjective but it's gotten more fun to me as you upgrade weapons, which gets you more combos, and as you progress in the skill tree, which gets you skills like counterattack, parry, Soul Chain attacks, Soul Stealing, etc. Chaining Soul Chain aerials is fun and is peak VP to me. And the hordes get bigger and more dangerous starting in Chapter 2 that you can't just mindlessly mash or you'll get blindsided. It's definitely become more fun after Chapter 1.

    We had a few but the game is unfortunately not that good. It's pretty damn ugly and it's a run of the mill boring ARPG where you mash XXXX or YYYY, and the demo did a poor job of showing spirits because you spent most of it without them. I can see it as an interesting purchase when it's 15 bucks or less.

    Just finished playing the demo. surprisingly good, too easy but there's some nice depth in the systems that the player can use. Like how Einherjar work as summons that has synergism with Divine Arts and regular weapons, but there's bit too much of a focus on binary weakness spam. Though the fact you can actually combo enemies without retarded hyper-armor spam everywhere puts it away above other ARPGs like Nier Automata/Trails of Mana/Tails of Arise. Definitely getting the game day one.

    Also, the MC is 10/10.

          >for its unique hybrid turn based combat,
          It's not unique nor was high quality. Being TBC it's already worse than Action by default.

              Where in your post does it mention anything about basic stuff like frames, hitstun, positioning, spacing, approaches, special hit properties, projectiles, an emphasis on avoiding damage, resource management, moveset swaps, canceling, etc?

      Maybe on the Pro, on base PS4 it runs at like 25 fps idle and drops to sub 20 whenever there's combat going on, with constant stutters. Would've been fine if it was turn based but it completely ruins the experience for an action game.
