Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[TRINITY: Souls of Zill O'll] Action-JRPG for the PS3 (give it a shot!)
I’ve been very curious as to why no one has talked about this game on the PA forums, and I have a sneaking suspicion that it is because of the lack of a good thread to discuss. I fully expect this thread to probably die out within a few pages because of the lack of online, but I want to put this game into light and hopefully get a few PAers to give it a shot!
I have had this game from Gamefly in my house for over a month now. Now I really want to get another game to get my money’s worth, but the problem is: it’s just so good. I look at the reviews and wonder what the living shit they were talking about when playing this game. It’s got everything you could want from an Action-JRPG.
Here is a list of notable things about the game:
Randomized loot! – That’s right, the loot in the game is almost completely randomized. When you go to an area and open a chest, it will almost always be a different item. (I say chances are, because sometimes if you don’t open a chest or have too many items, the item normally remains) You can also get items that increase your chances of getting a higher quality items.
Skills! The game has three different souls for each of the characters. Each soul has 4 useable skills, and 4 passive skills.
Various quality items! The game uses a D – U scale to tell you about the quality of the items. D being the lowest quality item and U being unique. There are a TON of various unique weapons/armor that you can equip with various enhancements on them.
Rare monsters! Some monsters will appear with a yellow aura around them. If you kill them you will get a good item. These monsters are usually much harder than normal and have different resistances/immunities so you have to be on your toes.
Side quests! Each town has an Adventurer’s Guild which allows you to pick up randomized quests at a randomized location for a randomized item. Normally it’s just money, but sometimes you get some good stuff from them.
Arena battles! In one of the main cities you can fight in an Arena to compete for prestige and loot. You bet money and you fight. You keep the SP/XP you gain from it as well!
The game also has trolls, goblins, dragons, zombie dragons, griffons, more dragons, and chimeras. It also has a tri-attack, which allows you to kill bosses/large monsters in one hit when you get their hit points down to about 10-15%. There is also a casino where you could bet your hard earned gold to win coins which you turn around and purchase some good unique loot.
Combat is pretty standard for a Action RPG. You have 3 buttons: Square, Triangle, and Circle. (X is used to jump) And you assign each button an attack, and you get an additional page using R2. So overall you can have 6 skills available instantly. If you need to change it up, then you can do that mid battle as well.
There are 3 different characters in the game: Areus, Dagda, and Serene.
Areus is a swordsman that uses the magic Fire/Ice. He's basically the main character in the game and used most often since he is very versatile.
Dagda is a hand to hand fighter that uses Lightning. Used primarily for bosses as he does major damage to them. Very high HP and damage, but attacks slow.
Serene is an agile fighter that uses Wind/Ice. Very good against fast moving monsters and flying ones. Can eventually learn stealth.
Each character is used to make certain boss fights easier to manage. You can switch characters easily by pressing L2.
I am currently at about 45 hours into the game and I think I’m nearing the end… It looks like the highest level is possibly 60, but I’m not sure yet. I just hit level 50 and I’m having a blast with the game! The story isn’t half bad either.
So please give it a shot... And please post any questions for the game that you have! I will certainly answer them as quickly as possible.
(HINT: If you click the RS it will target a monster allowing you to keep it in the center of the screen)
