    @justin258: All solutions that are in every way inferior to a nice menu option that I can go to and switch them off because I'm not feeling it. Even if it was somewhat cumbersome in Bravely Default ...

    @justin258: That's the thing though and why this game having a skill you can learn to avoid encounters is more of a bummer.. it doesn't need to be something you have to 'earn'. It should just be a co...

    Did they patch in a reasonable save system yet?

  • Efesell posted a message in the forum topic Continuously losing interest in Giantbomb due to lack of focus / quick looks. on the General Discussion board

    Features are better than making sure to quick look a bunch of games none of them care about and will never see again after they finish recording it.

    I think I would find what they're doing here refreshing story wise if it didn't feel so weird and slapdash.Like it was mentioned above already but I just finished Therions intro and the sequence of t...

    @justin258: Just general help to improve the flow of the game. Lots of encounters, the encounters don't move particularly fast, and I find that I need to do quite a bit of them to bring new character...

    I feel like there's a lot of doubling down on all the bad JRPG mechanics that the genre has slowly, painstakingly started to phase out.It's hard to be playing this and then look at what Bravely Defaul...

    Enjoy is a really strong word for any manner of internet discourse..There is more to be lost if you don't have the outlet, generally, I would say.

    A proper eating contest is organized in the manner that best dehumanizes everyone involved.One at a time is too clean and civilized. A dozen on a plate that you dunk in water and then slam them into y...

    H'aanits dialect is a bit of a chore but I can appreciate that they're going much further than most games do when they wanna approximate old English. If you're gonna do it then may as well take it alm...

    @bisonhero: Bravely Default has a really interesting story twist but then imagine if you then stretch a reveal over the course of like 12 hours.
