The Last Remnant

Does anybody else on the AJSA play or have played this somewhat underrated RPG by Square Enix? I know the battle system may turn some away but the story and ability to use Japanese voiceover w/ English subtitles gives me the immersion I need to keep playing it.

 

And if those who use Vsync for their games, the ingame setting does not work and I would suggest using RadeonPro if you have an ATI card to fix that issue (and whatever Nvidia equalivent would be for it), not to mention a bunch of tweaks to make the graphics look better.

 

Another mention that this game can get hard, so if you're looking for a casual RPG don't bother with this one.

I also have played this game, and I dabble back in to it from time to time and I believe i'm up to around 120 hours between two playthroughs. It truly is underrated for what it is, and the difficulty is one of the biggest things i love about the game (Yes, I play a LOT of the Dark Souls series).

 

But the game is incredibly massive in terms of characters and abilities, what with 25 characters and 5 union leaders max at one time with there being a total of 192 characters in the game plus the psychotic amount of quests, monsters, weapons, skills and items. You really do need some kind of a guide or a wiki to play this game to it's fullest, that and TONS of time. My first playthrough had to be completely abandoned because I had no idea that certain side quests (with rewards such as unique soldiers, items, and access to new areas) would just completely disappear if you played certain story missions, and I realized I had missed an immense amount of content after reading through the wiki. But with that issue out of the way, i've been loving my second playthrough and I still have a long way to go before i'm done with this game.

 

Oh yeah, that frame tearing shit sucks. Vsync worked on my Nvidia card, but when using large mid to late game abilities or abilites with a huge blast of some kind, it would cause frame rate dips well below 30. So I just tough it out while i'm exploring, as it never happens in combat.

Played it on the xbox 360. It was fun, the combat indeed takes practice and managing. The game does hit a few high spike of difficulty now and then but once you get the system down it becomes a straight forward rpg. 

But I have to say it's very unique and kind of wish there were more like it in the aspect of having the whole forming a military force and using them in a final fantasy turn base like combat.

I read the "Punishing for grinding" was fixed for the PC version so naturally, I grind a lot in these types of games because I already got my ass handed to me a number of times.

I played it on the 360. I heard the PC version was an improvement by fixing up some things about the battle system (more damaging enemies, harder to raise morale, able to field an entire group of leader units instead of being limited to one per group, fixed some side quest issues, etc). While I didn't like how everything about the battle system worked I really liked fighting with a lot of characters like that, I remember the music being pretty good, but thought the story and characters were forgettable.

This is something that I've been meaning to get on Steam for some time now. It has a demo on Steam if people want to try it out, although the demo throws you a ways into the game, by which point had you been playing from the start you'd know how various things work, but of course in the demo, you don't, so need to refer to the options, and manual to figure stuff out on your own.
