    Well, I'm just assuming you can at this stage... I'm setting off on a voyage of discovery!

    Ah. There's no character levelling mechanic in MH either; it's the same thing with crafting better equipment/weapons and buffing with gems. You get used to it!
    You do 'level up' on chapter completion, and you can indeed enhance equipment with items at the blacksmith. All of this is based on no understanding of the language in my version.

    Initial impressions...

    Feels more 'casual' than MH. Not keen on monster designs. No gathering to speak of, no carves; items just ping off monsters or out of crates in a shower of colourful shapes.

    As fb77 says, you can refine weapons at the blacksmith, but also get loot drops. Weapons might drop with slightly different attack values and status effects but you also equip cards (up to 8 at the moment) which also have stat boosts/penalties. You can buy, trade or find those as loot drops. It's a neat mechanic.

    I love the grind in these sorts of games, and although it doesn't do it for me like the MH games do, it's early days and I will definitely rack up a ton of play time.

    I gave in and bought thiss from Videogameplus.ca can't wait now. Got Virtue's last reward at the same time. Which to play first? I'm thinking VLR as RO will last ages no?

    @Zackv4861 Play VLR first. It's about 30-40 hours long but like you say, I imagine RO will go on forever. :)


    To people who already own the game: with the online multiplayer, I know you can play with random people but can you also pick people from your friends list?

    @Zackv4861 Can be as little as four days, which is pretty amazing considering. They also mark them at $15 so no customs charges.

    So with VLR and Persona 4 this week, the fact that I've not finished P3P yet... I'm not sure I can stick with this. I'm clearly not up to it, struggling to finish chapter 1 no less and I don't want my vita getting mistreated ;-)

    Up for offers if anyone's interested? All in English except the trophies - supposed to be the US version too! :-)

    @Murbal that's weird! Does it say US on the box? Maybe go back to it once you've played something else?

    Not enjoying it enough to be honest. Need to get back to NLKS too! For this type of game I'd rather be playing Monster Hunter anyway.

    @Murbal Fair enough! I'd make an offer but you've probably got all my Vita games. ;)

    And haha, I just check every so often on my iPod when I'm somewhere with wifi and not up to my eyeballs in other things.

    I've never actually bought anything from the shop, just swapped or upgraded what I had. The language barrier obviously isn't an issue for you though! I periodically check my closet to see what's better (if anything), but it's very hit or miss as I can't read the descriptions, just see if any stats are increased.

    Yeah, pretty much. I played ranged in my early levels, so avoided death that way. The stun can be brutal if you find yourself in a crowd.

    I found it a bit weird that the 'winter release' made a news article. That's been their standard response when anyone asks them for a while now. :D

    Sorry, dude, I didn't use any guides at all.

    I realise the pointlessness of my reply, but didn't want you to think nobody's listening!

    Lol. No worries. I've completed the main game now but just trying to clean up. I doubt i'll get the platinum.

    @martinthemonkey only just spotted this but I'm afraid not.

    @Zackv4861 - impressive that you finished the main game - I struggled massively even early on then lost all patience with it.

    I'll be honest i think it's impossible single player!!! The final boss you'd need at least 3 well equipped players. I could single the first two levels but everything after it was with a party untill i had majorly levelled.

    After having completed the game at max level i could solo chapter 6 no higher. It's a hard game solo but relies heavily on multiplayer to complete it.

    The online community were nice though, most of them really helpful. It would've been better had online been set up like Borderlands but hey.
