    The World Ends With You

    discuss, I wish I had time to say my initial thoughts right now, but I woke up too late.

    mostly because I stayed up until 4am playing it.

    Quickly though, I'll just say that for the first time in a very long time, I have renewed faith in Square overall.

    Didn't even hear about this, I need a good place for game news... I watched a video review at IGN and it looks amazing. Going to download when I get home for sure.

    Re: The World Ends With You

    i just look down gamefaqs' release list for each console and look into whatever doesn't sound retarded.

    Also, square announced this along with the 2 handheld KH games I believe, so people heard about it.

    I don't like the art style so I haven't bothered with it yet.

    It's on my DS though, waiting for whenever I finish with all that I'm already busy with.

    Re: The World Ends With You

    Is it really that awesome? Have been watching trailers and videos since before they changed its name, but was kinda concerned because I hear the battle system has a really steep learning curve. Maybe I'll have to pick this one up.

    Re: The World Ends With You

    Battle system only has a steep learning curve until you realize that you can place the top screen on automatic and only do actions on there when you deem it necessary for harder fights.

    You get all your HP at the end of a fight, or series of fights (which you end up doing often quite quickly). So taking a little bit of damage isn't a big deal. Once you increase your level to like, 10 or so, taking even 15% of your HP in damage still gets you a Star ranking for Damage in the BP tally.

    This game owns. I'm scared I'm going to fuck up my screen with how much I jam the stylus on it because it's amazing and I can't hold back from attacking as fast as I possibly can.

    I'm already past about 35% of the story content, but there's some post-game things to do too. =) And you may start to think it extremely short, but you'll quickly learn it's just the opposite...


    Get this game, this and Wild Arms:XF are the only two games I've recommended this strongly in years.

    I played it for about an hour last night going through what seemed likea tutorial and killing lots of Noise. I really like the system they have setup, lots of little details but they keep it from being tedious really well.

    Re: The World Ends With You

    Haven't played this in like a week, was wondering when a thread would pop up. Game is really fun and I'm surprised at how well the plot comes along, it's nothing amazing but there's alot of good twists that you don't see coming, makes a change for the usual glaringly obvious stuff in games. There's like 300 different pins or something too, so there's an amazing range of combo's you can do. Only thing I dislike is the way you have to evolve pins, retarded system but it doesn't really take away from the game unless you seriously feel the need to get every single pin.

    You can pretty much ignore your partner if you can't focus on doing both, took me until day 7 to get used to being able to get the cards right with Shiki and still focus on the bottom screen though.

    Re: The World Ends With You

    Honestly, just throw Shiki on Auto and hit a combo when you find out what card you're looking for. Joshua's slightly easier to be able to work to keep getting fusion stars and I can actually play him normal without having to deal with Auto.

    Evolving Pins can be a pain in the ass, but it's at least something else that you have to do that makes you not speed through the game as fast as you can (initially).

    Re: The World Ends With You

    What IS it? I looked up some screenshots and only got confused.

    Re: The World Ends With You

    What is it?

    It's the best fucking game you've played in a long time.

    This game is worth buying a DS for. Seriously, this could be the only game I ever play on a DS (which, of course it's not, I've owned every Nintendo system ever, and all portable systems for that matter), and it would be worth the money for it. This game is pure genius, and if you just pirate this damn thing and don't actually go spend the $40 for it (OMG IT'S $40 THAT'S SO AWFUL FOR A GAME THAT IS COMPLETELY UNIQUE) you should be shot, multiple times.

    WEWY has:

    - Unique battle engine, involving simple stylus commands inputted at rapid rates, along with focusing on a second battlefront at the same time
    - Unique story, with multiple twists and never gets stale
    - Unique soundtrack, which some think isn't all that wonderful, but it captures the feel of the game perfectly
    - Unique customization for settings, like decreasing character level to increase drop rate (character level only affects HP), making brands of clothing/pins more effective in certain areas, instantly changable difficulty levels that affect dropped items and of course battle difficulty, pins and ways to level up pins for evolving, types of attacks
    - Did I mention it was unique?
    - Wait there's a unique RPG that exists? wow, how'd that happen

    Seriously, buy and play. And then play again.

    Sounds like Disgaea with a stylus gimmick.

    Ahaha. This is probably as far from an SRPG you could get. I disagree that it's worth buying a DS for, but it is alot of fun.
