  • urbanscholar

    press Square to repair all or bury all? Yes please!

    • The Watcher

      you could always bury all

    • Duo Maxwell

      It has always been there, hasn’t it?

  • vault2049

    It would help if they actually fixed the frame rate issue on the Vita.

  • Brimfyre

    I hope they will add DLC characters in the future. The unlockable art hints at a lot of potential characters like Beast Master, Warrior Clerics, and Loli Witchs controlling Orcs.

    • SlickRoach

      I’d like the Female Monk from the level with the Warlock boss to be a playable character for sure.

    • TheExile285

      Beast master would be nice

    • Pockystix

      I would love a female spellsword

      my lack of Elf with a sword and shield bugs me lol

      too much SoM I guesS XD

    • JustThisOne

      Playable Rannie! :> He’s such a funny guy; I’d love to play as him!

      • Daniel Williams

        Oooh Myyy

        • JustThisOne

          “It’s my turn-Got it!”

          • Testsubject909

            Unfortunately I don’t see him as being a playable character.

            If this were a D&D game, he’d probably be fully optimized for one task. Being a full support rogue.

            Lock picking, deactivating traps, hiding and the likes.

          • JustThisOne

            Yeah, I know. It’s a total pipe dream. I can see him only being something like the knife half of the elf alongside a crap ton of loot related skills.

            But I kind of want to see more of Rannie anyway, because he’s pretty funny. Always picking locks while on fire and such.

    • Kristoffer Brandberg

      I’m tired seeing humans. How about the beastfolks as playable characters? That minotaur boss looks tons of fun to play as!

      • Guest

        The minotaur would be the new Elf if they add it, which I doubt.

    • MrTyrant

      I want a Dark Elf.

      • Kevin Schwarz

        We ALL want a Dark Elf! Also I would add a female fighter? or perhaps Morgan as some sort of rogue/dancer/whatever they want!

    • DLC stages too.

    • No_Limitz

      I would like them to add DLC classes based on their precious games’ characters; like Valkyrie or ninja. :>

  • Russell Miller

    Thats real weird I already had that press square to repair all. What they need to fix is that you can buy more than one bag. What I mean by that is I”m playing with my wife and friend and the player selected as player one can buy bags for himself, but player two and three can’t. It’s real annoying.

  • Jake_Indiman

    Love the game. But one qualm. What’s with the lack of pause screen when you are in the dungeon? I press the start button and it just takes me to a screen that says quit to title or go back to town.While the action is still going on. :p

    • TheExile285

      You have this on PS3 right?

    • Probably because of the online component. Of course that SHOULD NOT affect local co-op….. the game asks you whether or not you want to go online. Well, that would be one more “if” somewhere.

      • Quizler

        Still works the same way on local co-op, unfortunately

    • tubers

      What happens when you press the power button for a quick system sleep or the PS Button to supposedly save state the game?

      • Testsubject909

        That pauses the game no matter what.

        The start screen not pausing is because if you have network enabled, people can jump in and join you at any time drop in drop out style. Pausing would be problematic. Though you could argue they could’ve made it so that if Network was off, that pause could actually pause the game too.

        • tubers

          “That pauses the game no matter what.”

          Then, there you go.

          Wonder if that would ruin your ol party mate’s game tho.

  • koksuckaahh

    anybody got the vita version?

  • Mnstrzero00

    Wait elves get higher hidden item drop rates? The elf is so overpowered.

    • Testsubject909

      In the right hands, any of them are overpowered.

      • Kevin Schwarz

        Believe me, those Darn Mages are overpowered no matter what at higher levels…

      • PoweredByHentai

        I seriously need more skill points for my Elf.

  • Ben Sylvia

    I like they clarified that the Dwarf’s powder mastery only boosts Lava Bracer amped attacks.

    Wish it said that before I wasted getting bomb satchel rank 3.

  • courte

    one word. Dragoon.
    more words Cleric [make it fresh]

    you know what? here’s the bottom line; because three of these guys can be unarmed, and the six of them are split into really 3 different archetypes… sample every type of weapon that has appeared in Seiken Densetsu

  • Testsubject909

    I heard someone state that the patch removes dual stat equipment.

    That is to say, if an equipment, say, gave you STR +20 and LUC+20. That equipment will no longer have both of those stats up and will only be a mono stat upgrade.

    Really the only downfall I’ve heard of the patch to date.

  • RoxasTheUnknown1

    It’s not listed here so heads up. The patch also fixed the saved corruption bug people were getting when they buried hacked characters and got hacked gear.

  • Ric Vazquez

    I want a samurai or dark knight, yeah I know this is not Final Fantasy but still..

  • Raltrios

    This is one Atlus game I don’t want to touch. The Sorceress is too chesty for me, the Amazon disturbs me, and the Knight’s head looks too small for her body. I know it’s just art, but if I’d have to look at it the whole game…

    • PoweredByHentai

      The Knight is a GUY.

      • Raltrios

        Is it? Haha, that’s how little I care to look into this game, I guess. My bad.

        • PoweredByHentai

          Posting rules for Siliconera as a whole:

          4. Keep an open mind: Siliconera covers a very wide variety of games from all over the world for a wide range of platforms. Don’t like a particular kind of game or a particular genre or a certain game system? That’s great, but remember, the rest of the world doesn’t necessarily care to know about it. Let people enjoy the things they enjoy, and don’t ruin their fun with negativity.

          • Raltrios


          • I don’t think you need to be throwing the rules around like you’re a mod. That’s only going to make things worse. Leave that to them.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Let’s just all leave things here folks. No real rules have been broken by anyone. Thanks to all in the talk,

          • Point still stands though.

            It’s still a fun game regardless of what the art style is. A lot of my favorite games started with me being a bit bothered by a few small details before I played it.

  • Rol

    Really wish they would patch in original language narrators but I know that is NEVER gonna happen.
