Thread Steam Deck |OT| Your Games are Going Places
So I installed Emudeck along with PCSX2 (and a few other emulators) and have been playing through a game (Xenosaga Ep I) at what I assume is the default settings. I haven't found a way to access the emulator settings while in-game and although it's been running fine, it would be nice to use things like save states or speed-ups. How would I go about doing that, or do I have to change and run the emulator in desktop mode?

Really tempted to get this (although still playing Elden Ring at the moment) since I've loved GT since the very first game. A friend told me that apparently, you can actually buy credits with real money this time? For those of you who have played, how does this impact the campaign, is Credits a lot tougher to earn to try and entice you to spend real money because that would kill the game for me.

Please Note: Normal Pokemon are zone-based and may have a wide spawn radius so they may not be in the exact same position. Try to look in the area around the marker and you should be able to find one. Would greatly appreciate any feedback.

Thread Trials of Mana |OT| Seiken Densetsu 3-D
I think people's experience with Hard will vary based on how you are with action rpgs. I'm by no means an expert but I do tend to always chooser harder difficulties if possible and I didn't find Hard challenging (was still fun) outside of one or two spikes and that was mainly the AI not avoiding the aoes. I never took a healer with me, went pure damage and I was fine with healing, they literally throw healing items at you non-stop and on Hard, you can still use 9 of each in your ring menu. Considering you can take 9 Candys, Chocolates, Honey Elixirs, group heal items (rarer though), Revival items etc, it's more than enough. I defeated the postgame boss on Hard in just over a minute i'd say.

The game is a Persona game through and through (minus the social links) with an action combat system. Outside of the odd hacking sequence and specific event battles, you're usually up against either a handful of enemies (think 8-10) or strong bosses, in all cases, they have all of their weaknesses you would expect in Persona games and you have Persona's to use yourself (including fusion etc.). Scenario wise, there's lots of out of combat sequences before dungeons.

Thread Ori and the Will of the Wisps |OT| Give It Your Owl [Now Updated for Series S|X!]
Yep, to back up what I said in the review thread, Hard is definitely challenging for sure and if you're in any way concerned it might impact your enjoyment of the game, then go with Thomas's suggestion of Normal (he did create the game after all), the game is remarkable in every way and difficulty shouldn't impact your enjoyment the first time through in my opinion. Having said that, I tend to always try to play on the harder difficulties and I think Moon Studios deserves respect for the Hard mode in the game. It makes battles feel a lot more involved without feeling like they;re just upping HP values or something. The game is never unfair and there's plenty of tools to shift the balance in your favor, in terms of the enemies, I only really had trouble with the bosses. They are difficult but they're so expertly designed that they all have mechanics and tells you can learn and there's loadouts you can use to give you an easier time. , what was the differences of the escape sequences on hard, the game states they're 25% more difficult but they honestly felt perfectly fine and fair to me so I was curious to see what the differences are (I plan to do a Normal playthrough soon).

One of the major differences I did notice on Hard though is that merchants are a lot more expensive but I never felt the need to grind for Spirit Light and unlocked most by the end of my playthrough with about half of the Spirit Shards upgraded. Even then, there are Shards you can equip which will increase the rate at which you obtain Spirit Shards that I never equipped.

Having played both, Age of Calamity is a lot closer to a musou for sure, with the Zelda trimmings on top.

Thread Persona 5 Strikers - Review Thread
Our review is delayed by a day or two because we got our code late but one thing I keep seeing mentioned is how this is a musou game. This is absolutly not a Musou game, it's more a Persona 5 sequel with a few things missing like social links but with an action rpg system. Battles take place with groups of enemies instead of hundreds of them and you trigger them by ambushing single shadows like you would in the regular P5. You also have Personas, equipment etc, really just feels like an action rpg to me.

Thread Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition |OT| 2D, or not 2D, that is the question (now available on PS4/XB1/PC)
I'm actually glad you mentioned that, I didn't have a chance to upload everything because I was playing around with different setups and wanted to see if anything changed in the Switch version.

I played through it twice and on my first playthrough when watching my time, I hit the 50% point at around 10 hours played. There are a lot of secrets and hidden paths however and I wasn't able to complete one quest because I went a different way after accepting it so there's some variation there too.

For the price point, if you like this style of game then i can recommend it. Even though some of the other reviews mentioned problems with the combat, I actually really enjoyed it and was one of my highlights. I also really appreciated the open nature of the game to begin with.

I have no time for this game yet and have platted the PS4 version twice but this thread and reviews is making me consider pulling the trigger.

I loved this game on the PS4 so much that I platted it twice in English and played through the JP version. Really tempted to grab this but i'm so busy at the moment I don't have the time for it. Will be picking up as soon as I can though! I actually wrote a guide for the PS4/PC version and it covers everything in the original. Obviously the Switch version adds a ton more and when I get a chance to pick it up, i'll add it on to the guide but for now, some of you might want to check it out?

Thread Ys IX: Monstrum Nox | Review Thread
As RPG Site reported, NISA are aware of the PS5 issues and are releasing a patch soon. We had to forego a review because I literally couldn’t get past chapter 3 due to the crashes. I’d say I had a good 20+ and one of which restarted the console. After seeing the reviews, I launched the game again and crashed twice within 15 mins. Now your experience might be different to mine, I’ve spoken to some which didn’t have quite as many as me but the way it has been for me, I can’t recommend the game on PS5 in its current state which is a shame because when I can play it, I love it.

Thread The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4 |OT| In ink, black as despair
Well looking at other reviews, people seem to suggest lower times so i'm not sure how, maybe they didn't do 100%? I found Normal mode really easy and I never had to grind for anything either.

I can only go by my playthrough for our review but I played on Normal with turbo mode on outside of cutscenes. I did everything you could do (i'm only missing nightmare playthrough and a few bonding trophies) and I finished at 120 hours although I'd say 10 of those are probably idle.

Thread Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy | Review Thread
Interesting, maybe it was just here in Europe then. Our distributor specifically stressed the point of no access to the PS5 version until launch and I got an error every time I tried to download it (in fact, I still do now).
