It’s a Bethesda title so will be on Game Pass after the year exclusivity is upHas anyone given Ghostwire: Tokyo a shot? It got pretty middling professional reviews but the game looks incredible and the combat looks interesting... I'll probably wait until it's not a PS5 exclusive (if that ever happens).
Persona 3, sorta? More so in iconography than the concept itself, specifically in that characters summon Personas by pointing a gun at their head and pulling the trigger.I realize this is a strange question, but can anyone think of a Japanese game that includes a storyline involving suicide? (Most likely a JRPG, being realistic.) Asking because I’m working on a grad school research project related to portrayals of suicide in Japanese media/artworks.
Any advice on Margit's second phase? His range is insane with that damn hammer. Was hoping to defeat him being lv 43 but now I wonder what to upgrade more because I am clearly struggling. If I upgrade Endurance, would that possibly help with blocking some hits with the shield? Its frustrating how ruthless he is and to think he is the first major boss, God help me haha!
Also, 1 more question. Do heavy load weapons become mid load if you focus on Endurance more? Like, I am not enjoying using Darril's weapon at the moment because my character's movements are too slow but if I upgrade Endurance more, would that make it easier?
Yeah, when I said my character is slow I didn't mean weapon movement but the rolling. So its good to know that Endurance will help with dodging more. Thanks for the tips but I beat him, like I said, not sure how haha, I didn't use summon, just Jellyfish. I am currently at Castle Morne, those flying things are annoying, I think I need to make it easier on me and invest in Vigor at the moment.Oh you should definitely go for Endurance if you are going for a strength build like that. It won't make the weapon go faster, but you can use heavy armors and have greater weight load & pose.
About Margit, respect his delaying and maybe use a shield if you are having troubles. NPC summon outside his gate, Rogier may help cause he is a sorcerer and can deal damage when you tank him. Other than that, if you spared Patches, you can buy Margit's Shackles from him which will stun him briefly upon use. You can only use it a couple times so proceed with caution.

I did wander in Caelid and wandered right out there haha! I am following that YouTube video I posted recently where a guy just outlines the route, where to go so you don't miss out on anything, that is why I am at Morne castle. I recently got Demi Humans spirit, not bad, better that Lone Wolves in any case.Oh, congrats! He is really one of the hardest battles by the way. Yup, the vigor in this game is actually very important. Especially in late game areas, you need at least 40 point in it in order to not to be one shotted. Keep us updated, especially when you wander into Caelid nn.
And yes, higher endurance will let you mid roll when you should be slow rolling.
Okay Rennala is c*nt. What’s her story??
Gay icon!She is the most tragic character quite possibly in the game.
So i took a break from the work and decided to share what i gathered on her through the game
Rennala is an Carian noble who idolized, even worshipped Moon and the Stars. When Marika and her Golden Order came to conquer Liurnia under the banner of Greater Will, she mobilized her Carian knights, powered them with her Glintstone magic against them and was able to fend off to to the point that she was declared as a champion and was made head of the Raya Lucaria Academy.
Then enter, Radagon.
There is a bigger story who Radagon really is, that would be a spoiler so shortly, Radagon was a commander in Golden Order (I'm not really sure but know that he is an adamant defender of Greater Will) and he married Rennala, because they were oh so in love. They had 3 kids (Ranni, Radahn and Rykard) who were made Empyreans afterwards. After some time later, Radagon leaves her in order to be with Queen Marika, leaving her at the state we found in. The academy also turned their back on her, declared that she was no champion and locked her up in the main library where the bossfight happens.
Radagon left her an egg and his trusted wolf. What exactly is the egg and what does Rennala hope from it is quite speculation right now, but i think she believes, Radagon will reborn again or his heir, that might explain her obsession with it. The second phase we fight her is the illusion Ranni put to defend her against anyone who disturbs Rennala's slumber. It is meant to harken back the time when she was at her full power
GrimGrimoire is such a triumph. A true hidden gem from Vanillaware's PS2 days. I think I played it a bit later, maybe around 2017 or 18? The entire time I thought just how great it would be on the Switch; touch controls alone would be an absolute serve. Gorgeous visuals. A little repetitive, but absolutely is the sort of smaller, but still high budget risky game that stopped existing after the PS2 era.Some great news for the JRPG stans:
- GrimGrimoire OnceMore announced. This is going to be a enhanced remaster with new features like the Odin Sphere one a few years ago, which was fantastic (GrimGrimoire is also a VanillaWare game). I played the original on the PS2 but never actually beat it, so definitely looking forward to this new version. Ok this isn't actually a JRPG but I guess it's JRPG-ish nn
- Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising out next month. The prequel to Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, the Suikoden spiritual successor which is being released next year.
Though I wish I could just play EVERYTHING on the Switch, I did finally snag a PS4. I think I'm going to get Persona 5 Royal, Tales of Berseria, Yakuza: Like A Dragon, and Final Fantasy XV to start with (I already have my brother's copy of 7 Remake).
Yes, Tales of Arise has the pretty graphics and incredible looking combat, but I find the premise of Berseria to be so much more interesting, so I'm going to play it before Arise.
