    I can see that happening.
    The secret to those are to just run Neku in circles while you rape with the top screen.

    Thank you.

    Are you serious that those kinds of wall conditions actually exist? I'm not that far yet :P

    I think a condition like that only shows up once, maybe twice, in the game but yeah it exists.

    Another time you have to fight a noise battle using only the top screen because they don't give Neku any attack pins.
    Luckly Joshua absolutely rapes at that point with his aerial giga doom shit so no big deal. :lol:

    But stuff like that so few and far between.



    And seriously all you guys who beat it tell me how open the fucking box on the third game! D:

    I beat the game now, had to go down to easy mode for last boss (very very last one). If I didn't have to study for exams I'd have restarted the game to get even more uber but I have no times now D:,

    Also, it feels like I cheated by going down to easy mode because it's so DAMN easy. It's like the final boss does 2 damage ever minute or something, hell I even waste all my heals (by accidentally clicking it) and got through with more than 50% left by the end of the boss.

    I needed no heals on the final boss due to a lot of regeneration.




    And seriously all you guys who beat it tell me how open the fucking box on the third game! D:
    For the first box, just defeat noise to match the pattern
    For the second, defeat all noise of the shown symbol
    For the third, defeat noise in both areas to match the pattern
    I fell back on gamefaqs myself, so feel no shame

    Fuck, this or Persona 3 FES...

    I want both so bad. This seems like the better game, but you know Atlus, if I don't get P3 soon, it'll disappear forever most likely

    I'll probably end up getting both somehow... probably by not eating for a few days.

    Damn this $40 DS game. About how long did it take you to beat it? Is there any post game stuff to do, or new game+ stuff?

    There's a fair amount of new game+ with missions for secret reports, and a bonus scenario as well.
    Lengthwise? No in-game timer, so I'm not completely sure, but somewhere in the region of 10-15 hours.

    I've spent roughly 30 hours on this, but it certainly didn't feel that long. That's 30 hours after completing roughly half of the Chapters (secret items/reports), so the actual game took less time. You could say I'm about halfway through my second playthrough. I can pride myself in saying that I didn't have to Easy Mode a single boss.

    I enjoyed pretty much everything about this game. The setting, the plot, the characters, the mechanics, it was all great. Even though Beat was a little over the top, it didn't bother me. The Reapers are diverse, the bosses are adequately difficult (fuck you, Hard Minamimoto, fuck you so much) and scanning for Noise is MUCH better than--ugh--random encounters. I can only assume that this is a pretty close geographical representation of Shibuya, which is pretty cool.

    Being a stickler for organization, however, I have to say that the items are a bitch to navigate through, but I don't have to change my equipment very often, so that's good. Shame you can't sell stuff, though--I don't really need two copies of a BGM track, but whatever.

    One of my favorite aspects of equipment was the fact that they use Bravery as a sort of requirement system. Female clothing has high Bravery requirements, and Shiki has a naturally high Bravery rating. This prevents Neku, Joshua and Beat from wearing girl's clothing--at least until they're brave enough to--but Shiki can wear both male and female clothing whenever she wants. So yeah, you can cross-dress characters, it's awesome. Putting a Black Bikini on Neku was fun.

    Like I said, I'm going through the story a second time for the Reports (they're a pretty interesting read if you're into backstory) and for special equipment (I'm gonna get ALL of Pi-Face's equipment for Neku. Obtaining Orichalcum and Dark Matter is a total bitch, though).

    That said, any tips on getting Orichalcum/Dark Matter?

    Edit: I think the "Bling" when you get an item in-battle is just onomatopoeic--otherwise it's referred to as Swag (which is an infinitely cool term).

    You should wait, because you dont want to support the idea that DS games should be sold at that price point

    and b)

    All of the other SE $40 DS games have been available for much, MUCH cheaper not too long from launch. Its a serious bullshit price point. Just have some patience, and go work on some backlog or something for a few months. I will personally notify anyone that wants it of deals on this if they want. Fuck $40 DS games. NO EXCEPTIONS.

    Seriously. You launch a new IP, and you want it to sell. Therefore, selling it for $5 more than ALL DS games is not the proper approach. Its even slightly more absurd than $40 for more established franchise games, where we can possibly believe that the cost is because you've had to throw in an abnormally large DS cart.

    I will absolutely buy this game within the next few months, but I will be paying something along the lines of $20-25. Guarantee it.

    I just noticed at the beginning.
    Before you form a pact with Shiki you can see Joshua watching you by the statue and the leave when after you pact.

    I wonder if there are any more little things like that..

    I just got to my second day with my second partner, and wow have my scores gone down the drain. Shiki had me spoiled, I guess, as I could generally just mash the direction of an enemy and she'd do decent damage and be quick to pass the light puck back while I focused on the lower screen. Not sure if I'm just paying for not developing proper skill and micromanagement earlier on, or if my scores will just magically improve as I get better pins and more stickers as they did with Shiki.

    I'm digging the game, though. The beginning didn't grip me at all, but I've warmed up to it since then. Which is interesting to me, as I usually get really frustrated in games when I feel I'm under performing, yet here I am, being lectured by a know-it-all partner that I need to do better after every battle and still having fun.

    After they introduced Joshua, Nekku was much less annoying (though that could also be character development).

    I'm still pissed that the second Cooking Mama game is like $30 or $35. I remember buying the first for $20 the day it came out. I basically refuse to pay more than $20 for anything...everything goes down eventually. Except for Smash Bros. $35 for a used $20 greatest hits game? Huh?

    Joshua's single-direction attack is like, two buttons, and for each button he locks onto an enemy and drops something on it when he finishes the string of commands (he can target an enemy multiple times if there aren't enough). You have to learn the other two strings, as they allow him to lock on and rack up damage.

    It's definitely an adjustment, as Shiki was plenty potent with by pressing left or right repeatedly. But I'm glad the top screen combat is deeper than that.

    Joshua is arguably the best partner in terms of damage (DEATH FROM ABOVE), and he's easier to rack up stars with than Beat (Shiki being the easiest), so you could say he's pretty damn useful. Plus, the Fusion attacks that he initiates are cooler than Shiki's or Beat's. Simple as that.

    Yeah, so anyone else got the soundtrack? Is it great or what? Twister and ツイスター are pretty much the best tracks, along with It's So Wonderful. <3

    Beat does more straight damage than Joshua in my experience, and I found myself relying a lot less on fusions later in the game.
    By the final boss, I never needed healing.

    Damn you people complaining about $40 for a DS game. When FF3DS came out here, it cost $80 AUD!!! (=$74USD!) And don't get me started on fucking 360 and PS3 games.

    Anyway, I want this game, but like you except twice as bad, I don't know if I'll want to pay $80 for it.

    Yeah, I wish I could get it for just 40 USD too. I bought it for twice that much, which is the price for most new DS games here.

    Beat is the best for single target damage. Joshua is a lot better at attacking every enemy at once. So I mean they are about the same in terms of damage.

    Or what their gender is. Could've been glare on the screen, but I've been wrong twice so far. I'm taking a more proactive stance from now on, and getting my own back on the game by dressing Neku up all pretty to confuse the Reapers. It seems to be working.

    The only character's gender I wasn't sure about at first was Rhyme.

    And compared to you people, I guess I kinda suck at this game. Most of the bosses I had to retry on easy to kill, and the only star I had was for getting all the pigs on Shiki-2.
