    This is just gut instinct from having played both games, but I feel like Journey to Kreisia (2013 I believe) would fit in the Exe-Create tree immediately after Infinite Dumanis (2012).

    Welcome to RPGInsanity!

  • I remember this game as being completely hilarious, but absolutely punishing on the highest difficulty. I gave up on the highest difficulty pretty quickly, and played it on a lower one.

    That was the original version on the Xbox 360. I’m not entirely sure how changed the “remake” Doom and Destiny Advanced is.

  • I believe it’s still possible to buy and download Mystic Chronicles on the PSP, Vita, or Vita TV.

    It can’t be played directly on the PS4, last I heard.

  • How exactly can I report an RPGInsanity account that sends scam private messages? What do I click on to do that?

    I’ll recommend Revenant Saga on the PS4. It has a solid story and gameplay, and the PS4 version has no in-game purchases. It’ll also give you a general idea of how Kemco RPGs made by developer Exe-Create work.

    Journey to Kreisia is my personal favorite, but it’s not on PS4.

    The game you played, Legend of Tetrarchs, is made by developer Hit…[Read more]

  • I want a mobile port of Undertale not because I’d play it on mobile, but because that game is so good and so thought-provoking that it deserves to reach as wide an audience as possible.

    Mobile controls might be a real issue for it though…

  • The Speed statistic directly affects how many battle turns characters get in Revenant Saga, and if it’s too low then their enemies will attack over and over before party members ever get a turn. Most or all of Exe-Create’s turn-based JRPGs are like that, I think?

    It’s generally only a problem if the party is severely outleveled, or if the player…[Read more]

  • I’ve only played Revenant Saga (PS4 version), and my review of it might be a little too positive because reasons (the game just clicked), but I do want to emphasize one thing about it. “Normal” difficulty is shockingly easy, even/especially compared to other Exe-Create games. Try “Hard” if you want any real challenge. Difficulty can be adjusted…[Read more]

    Welcome!

    My Dragon Quest IX DS gripe is that so much DLC for that game (especially DLC quests) is basically “lost forever”. I’ve wondered if that game will ever be remade. Every DQ before it has been remade, so maybe?

  • Victar replied to the topic Your Top 20 J-RPGs All Times in the forum General Chat 2 months ago

    I played the original Radiant Historia on the DS. It is a solid game with an excellent story, good music, and an intriguing, turn-based battle system. A few optional bosses were incredibly cheap, but that’s why they’re optional, right?

    I decided against playing the remake because, according to the reviews I read, the extra content/timelines were…[Read more]

    I tried The World Ends With You on the DS and sold it out of frustration with its controls. It’s possible I’ll rebuy it on the Switch and give it another chance one day, but the odds are low.

    The World Ends With You is an action-RPG with unique controls. By “unique” I mean, “forces the player to constantly divide their attention” and “every…[Read more]

  • Victar replied to the topic Congrats to MSG Commander! in the forum General Chat 3 months ago

    I have found this site enormously helpful when playing Kemco games, especially with regard to its maps and sidequest lists.

    Love the forums, too!

  • Victar replied to the topic Message from MSG Commander in the forum General Chat 3 months ago

    I’m going to straight-up confirm this. Last I checked, I literally had 1 year of “time played” total in World of Warcraft.

    I don’t regret all of my time spent in WoW – a lot of it was fun. I am questioning whether all of the grinding, farming, and collecting I did in that game was worth it, though.

    I’m finally breaking away from WoW to do more…[Read more]

    I’ve entertained the goal of finishing all Kemco RPGs on the 3DS, which is a very modest list, but at the rate I keep getting distracted by other things that may not happen until 2030 or beyond.

    I do need to make peace with the fact that new Kemco RPGs come out for the PS4 way faster than I can play them, so I really shouldn’t just buy every one…[Read more]

    Writing is like pretty much everything else. It takes practice, practice, and more practice. Learning about the craft helps, from taking English courses (that includes studying literature) to reading writing guides, but there’s no substitute for just doing it, and doing it, and then revising the rough draft, and then revising the rough draft…[Read more]

  • Victar replied to the topic Hey in the forum Welcome Mat 3 months ago

    Journey to Kreisia is my all-time favorite RPG, because it connected on a personal level and inspired me to write a fantasy novel. It was also pretty fun to play, of course. The 3DS version didn’t have in-game purchases; instead there was an optional currency (“Kreisia Points”) that the player could grind random battles for.

    Unlucky Mage had OK…[Read more]

    Journey to Kreisia is at the top of my list because it’s “my” top 20, not an objective top 20.

    Games after the top few aren’t necessarily ranked in order of preference.

    1. Journey to Kreisia
    2. Final Fantasy X
    3. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
    4. Super Paper Mario
    5. Arc Rise Fantasia
    6. Grandia 2
    7. Grandia
    8. Legend of the Dragoon
    9. Dragon Quest…

  • After playing through Infinite Dunamis on Normal difficulty, then replaying it for the True End, I thought I’d list some very basic combat strategies. I say “very basic” because I didn’t play the game on Hard, or attempt its optional superboss/arena challenges, and I only grinded up to level 99.

    There are about 2 lines of text buried in the…[Read more]

  • Victar replied to the topic Revenant Saga game length in the forum Game Length 5 months ago

    30 hours 54 min for the True Ending, on Normal difficulty. All sidequests are complete.

    Very little time was spent in arenas.

    Fighting enemies on the Metal Monster island with a Tick-Tock Hoop made the postgame level grind from 60+ to 100+ VERY fast.
