To be fair I've never played any of those, which is sad since I have a factory sealed copy of Phantom Brave AND the strategy guide stored somewhere in a box.  Regardless, FF:T, especially the relocalized remake, is worth stabbing over.

" @mutha3:   Bahamut Lagoon rocks. What the hell are you talking about? When I first heard of Devil Survivor, I thought it was essentially going to be a DS version of Bahamut Lagoon. Unfortunately, it was nowhere near as awesome.

Dude, its terrible. Unless the game significantly opens up after the 5 or so hours I played it, I can't imagine the combat system being anything but fairly unremarkable, slow as hell schlock.
 


And isn't Warsong basically Fire Emblem on a massive scale?

Sounds good on paper. 
 
Too bad any form of actually making strategies and map design, the things that make FE games stand out, also get lost in that increased scope. What you're left with is a game that does neither number-crunching like most SRPG or brainteasing like Fire Emblem.
 


 The first game even steals the plot of the first Fire emblem, so it's kinda confusing that you hate it while liking Shadow Dragon and Monshou no Nazo. 

 
I said FE1, didn't I? You're probably  right about 3, though. I never bothered playing it.

Just to confirm, you're ragging on Final Fantasy Tactics: Advanced, right?  Because if you mean the original  FF:T, or FF:T's PSP remake, it's time for you to get stabbed.

This game is fantastic.  Buggy, but fantastic.  I'm hooked - not sure how much depth is here but the gameplay is innovative enough to warrant your $10

There are few things more satisfying than gunning down a serial running roofer from long range, because you know that motherfucker just threw down his controller and said whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
 
EDIT - also if I'm in a game full of roof runners, I just blend / morph and chill back with a smokebomb at the ready - eventually they will run to you allowing for a bomb, stun, escape, which is worth about three of their crazed zombie sprint kills

Shoot me straight - how friggin long did it take those of you who have it to get it?  And how did you do it, any particular match modes that yield more exp?  I'm pretty good at the multiplayer (level 14 in about 3 sittings) but for the love of god that's a lot of EXP
 
I flipped through a few pages and didn't see a topic on this pain in the ass achievement, so here it is.

If you're playing with friends, try to hide in a group, as you'll get more points for sticking together, at least early in the match.  Defense is all about keeping the score as close as possible until the round ends, then pour on the offense for an easy win

Cover based shooter with crossbows, arrows and blowguns, hooooooooo!
 
EDIT - Didn't I hear on a podcast that there is actually a fantasy-themed GoW2 clone in development?  Brad had mentioned it.  Not that it's a good idea, mind you.

" Yeah, during this fight, random town peoples will die and, like chu52 put it, Goodsprings ain't no Megaton. If it makes you feel better, I reloaded this sequence five times before I was able to complete the fight without losing anybody and it really doesn't change anything. I am 16 hours into the game now and I have not returned to Goodsprings once. If you absolutely must finish this sequence without losing anyone, charge in close to the gang members so they focus their firepower on you and then have the townspeople pick them off as you also VATS it out. Takes a while but it works! "
Goodsprings is actually a great "base" early on in the game if you're playing on Hardcore.  It's close to Goodsprings Source, which always has fresh water for you and Geckos to shoot and cook, and Goodsprings has a reloading bench and workbench available without having to go into a building / separate loading screen.  The weapon store there sells good amounts of ammo and mods as well, and you can use the Doctor's House as a place to stash some goods early on in the game.
