    As a hardcore gamer I love playing multiple games. Some games deserve more attention over a longer period then others. But in the end, I love playing as many as I can. My main interest lies in RPG, FPS and strategy games, but I also love a good adventure-, sports-, racing- and fighting game! :D
  1. The whole story just confirmed my assumptions I formed back when the beta got released. The sad thing is if this BS is going to be standard in the industry, it will be time for me to retire and get another leisure hobby.
  2. ToX2 on PS4? I haven't red any news about such announcement. As far as I know ToX2 is only available on PS3. Even Tales of Zestiria will be on PS3 and not PS4. Yeah my X360 died on me aswell, but I got a new one for Tales of Vesperia (& Gears of War)
  3. I don't have it yet so I possibly couldn't know, but I suspect it might be because you visit places you have already seen and are playing with characters you already knew from the previous one? Hence the reason why I wait for a slight pricedrop. Instead of the regular €60, I'll pick it up around €40. It's all about the marginal utility!
  4. Regarding weapons... There are red, blue and brown treasure chests. If you are playing in multiplayer and open these chests. Next time you re-visit that same area, all the chests will be closed again. This is a great way to stock up on weapons, keep the best and sell the rest If you're not playing in multiplayer, only the brown chest will remain open, the other ones will be closed again next time you re-visit the area. So my advice is not to buy weapons, but to lootspam them Regarding the upgrading done by Liz. Only after beating the Floor boss 76, her blacksmithing improved. I noticed that after a simple talk with her, it improved again (but I suspect it is because I had already beaten Hollow Area 1 Boss) It's a good idea to upgrade your weapon 2 or 3 times. But after that, it's better to stop upgrading since you'll loose a lot of ores for basically nothing. Oh and don't forget the DLC you can download for free. In this DLC you'll get Heatcliffs sword & shield + Yuuki's Sword (you also get extra missions and shennanigans). Both sword are great and actually my greatest swords atm. The shield is nice because it gives you a health regen of 200HP/sec. You won't find the DLC on the official page of SAO HF or PSStore. Best thing is to do it manually queue everything so your Vita starts auto downloading them next time you start. https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/#!/nl-be/games/sword-art-online-hollow-fragment/cid=EP0700-PCSB00618_00-SWORDART2USEU100%3AADD-ONS There's another free DLC coming this week, normally it would have been today. Somebody said he saw on Twitter it will probably be this friday, so be sure to check it out on friday!
  5. I was just like you in the beginning But then as I unlocked more sword skills and wanted to start spamming them. I noticed these little things that sadly never are clearly explained in the game. It's really a damn shame the game doesn't really explain multiple things well, but you know what? We got each other now to help out As far as I know regarding Sinon... she will change her weapon from dagger to bow. By then it is to late to unlock her different costumes. In order to unlock the different costumes... you need to pay attention to what kind of skill she uses. You have the red ATK skill The blue DEF skill & the green BUFF skill (you can check these during combat, it appears above her name & level, plus it is actually colored) In order to unlock the costumes you have to say NICE to that type of skill ONLY untill you got the costume (ignore the other type of skills for the moment). If your personal relation with the girl is rank 5. you will be able to reset her combat memory and start saying NICE to another type of skill untill you got that costume aswell. Finally you do it for the last type of skill and BOEM you get a forth costume as a little extra To raise your rank to 5, just take her with you on adventure I guess. Doing dates doesn't really improve it. The date stuff doesn't have anything to do with the costumes, it's only to unlock certain CGI (I readed once). I currently have Liz, Asuna, Philia & Silica in rank 4. Aciddentally I already unlocked Leafa's attack costume. I'll raise Leafa's rank to 5, reset her combat memory and then go for DEF or BUFF.
  6. Regarding the dates with O and R1 button. You notice how there are 3 dots before the time is up to reply. In some situation you have to reply with O or R1 on the third dot Something I noticed while I was trying to date Liz (I hoped her blacksmith level improved with it, but I already found out it has no effect whatsoever ) Regarding the battle system... 1) It payes off to do a combo burst attack and then your Sword skill, because while you're doing the combo burst, chances are high your partner performs a skill her/himself. At that moment press the NICE button and you get 50 SP 2) You start off with a very valuable skill that replenish your SP full, use it 3) There's another skill you can unlock and buy that replenish 150 SP. 4) When a monster attacks you with a special attack, be ready to parry that attack. It will give you 100 SP 5) When your partner asks you to stun the enemy, do it. It will give you at least 50 SP 6) When your partner tells you to switch, he/she will thank you and it results in another 50 SP 7) There's a skill that improves your DEX + reduces the cooldown of your skills. I noticed it really helps out with the skill I mentioned in point 2 and 3 8) If your partner doesn't do a skill (and you are relying on him/her because you want to say NICE for the 50 SP), tell him/her manually to activate a skill. 9) I have seen that there's a skill that raises your max SP temporarily with 150 SP. I don't have it yet, but I'll get it eventually Good hunting (btw... you can't spam NICE all the time, there's a time interval. Normally the 4 hit burst combo attack is enough time to re-activate the NICE-ability. Eg. your partner asks to switch, but just did a sword skill. Tell him/her NICE first, then do a 4 hit burst combo attack, then do the switch & prepare yourself to do another NICE) Little girl his daughter? You mean Yuui? I was referring to Silica Yeah technically Leafa & Kirito aren't brother & sister so actually it's really ok, but still... didn't the guy get enough female love? Apparently not... Even Sinon in GGO clearly states she hates Kirito, but after seeying last week episode... guess who joined the harem?
  7. Initially I though that more people will play it on PS3 (old gen), then on PS4 (current gen). But in the meanwhile it looks like most interested people already got a current gen. The deal you mention does have a deadline. You'll have to upgrade it before the end of January 2015.
  8. girlfriend/women? check! underaged little girl? check! sister? check! best friend of women/girlfriend? check! & if this ain't enough, more girls fall for his... his... euhm... why do they all actually love Kirito so much? What's wrong with Klein? IMO it's just getting a bit overexagerated, borderline ridiculous (nevertheless good game, loving it)
  9. Welcome to the world of the 'Tales of ...' games I had the same situation with Tales of Vesperia on X360. Luckily for me it had an awesome story and great characters. IMO the best of the ones I have played. Best combat would go to Xillia.
  10. I finally beated the first Hollow Area and checked out floor 76 and beated the floor boss aswell. I'm really loving Hollow Area, it's so B I G, lots of exploration to do. The floor level on the other hand was like a tiny snack compared to the Hollow Area. I hope the later floors are bigger then floor 76... Absolutely having a blast with this game, already rammed 40 hours in it and I'm far from being bored with the game As far as my memory serves, in the anime it was mentioned that ALO got developped to cover the costs of SAO (the 'servers' + law suits by families of deceased players). When Leafa enters Aincrad in this game, she starts with level 69 I believe? While Kirito starts at level 100. Anywayz if you want an explanation for everything, I find it much more stranger to see Sinon in the game... She had no relation to SAO and ALO at all. She's just 1 of the main characters in GGO. Since you 'have' to date your harem in the game and unlock their multiple costumes etc. I assume it's just straight fanservice why we got Leafa & Sinon. Just like Strea was the new girl in Infinity Moment (from what I have heared/readed), Philia is the new girl of this game. If there will come a sequel, I hope the new added character would be a dude for a change. I mean... how much harem girls does Kirito want??? I'm glad to see you can team up with Klein, to bad you can't do the same with Agil...
  11. Good point. Unfortunately I have no idea if that will get explained. Progress in the game is going quiet slow. There's tons of exploration to do and endless enemies to cut down. IMO they just inserted those characters because they are known characters of the SAO anime. I don't really expect a solid explanation, we're in an alternative timeline anyway.
  12. Yes exactly. The same glitch causes the arrival of Leafa and Sinon to Aincrad. Leafa starts with level 69 and Sinon with level 58. They are the weakest of the bunch in the beginning. Silica starts of level 72, Strea 95, Asuna 95, Klein 92? I explored with Leafa today and cranked her level up to 90. My Kirito now has level 110. They released the game on PSstore with Engrish subs and Japanese voices. And I'm not even a native English speaker, but even I can see the grammatical errors, hence the Engrish You can't buy a hard copy in the local store, we (EU & US) can only download it. For those that decide to download it, note that you'll need at least 3Gb... My poor little card of 4Gb is almost full because of it o_O
  13. Hi everybody! I recently got the PS Vita game SAO Hollow Fragment and I'm loving it! Sadly there are some things I still have to find out and it's quiet difficult to find other people who play this game aswell to discuss certain things. So I figured I would open up a topic here and hopefully we can gather some people here to discuss various things about this massive huge game. I dunno when somebody will find his/her way here, but feel free to PM me to grab my attention For those who have absolutely no idea what this is... The game follows an alternative timeline that splits from the anime at episode 14 (the fight between Kirito & Kayaba). Due to a major glitch, the fight suddenly stops and the game is not beaten. So everybody heads on to floor 76. There everybody noticed you cannot go back to the lower floor levels of Aincrad. So in the game you'll have to work your way up to level 100 to beat the game. Aside of this there's also the Hollow Fragment, which the game recommends to clear first before clearing the floorlevels in Aincrad. The Hollow Fragment is no small snack, it's pretty BIG To top this even off, in September there will be free DLC that expands the game with another additional 50 hours gameplay You start in the game with a level 100 Kirito (you can change his name & appearences if you like) and everybody lost some of their skills. I'm now level 109 and saving points to unlock Starburst Stream!
  14. Dang I thought you guys were talking about the Vita game Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment. For those who loved the anime and actually have a Vita. I highly recommend it, I'm loving the game!

  15. Oh man, poor you If the ending had been worthy, I would have done another run where I had to be a Renegade and face that decision aswell.
