    ...okay, that mirror animation is pretty neat.

    Man, that took awhile. That Cleric was clearly of a god of Spite.

    Ah, now I understand why you don't like FFT. They're especially pointless here though, since you've got training mode for level grinding.

    Not quite. Often times you'd find better recruits in random encounters than at the shop; it can also provide useful equipment and well, training is very, very dull. Plus, you get the negative emblem if you only ever level up in training, so you've got to look out for that as well.

    Sure, but training is even more boring than random encounters.

    FFT's random encounters aren't for training? (glances at four randos standing in a corner spamming Accumulate while one Knight Speed-breaks the last actual enemy until they only take one turn for every ten your team gets) .. yeah, building up new characters is a lot more tolerable if you can use the JP-glitch in the original versions..

    Maybe you misread my tone there... I like FFT and happily spend hours doing nothing but random encounters. The training mode in Knight of Lodis is interesting, but if you're going to have a training mode available like that, you should probably cut the random encounters from the game.

    But if you enjoy the game instead of wanting to get over with it, not having random encounters would be very, very lame. And games arent designed for people who dislike them.

    Also, did Zodi get quest mode yet?

    Yes LansXeno Zodi has unlocked at least 1 quest in quest mode. The issue is that the first quest has level 15 enemies and not sure how well team Zodi can handle that. At six members.

    The coolest thing about the Mirror is that it changes depending on what element is using it. The big image that pops up is a Mode 7-y playing around of the Elemental symbol!

    To clarify this point, I don't mind random encounters. That was me specifically saying that Knight of Lodis' random encounters are a bit...not super great, due to how the pay out for them is not all that good.

    I dislike FFT for different reasons

    Concerning Quest Mode, I'll actually be doing a video about that Soon (tm). Likely will accompany Friday's video as a bonus thing, just to show it off and stuff. I don't intend to show all of Quest Mode off on screen since it's not that exciting and doesn't contribute to any proper kill counts...though I will be using it, and trying not to OVER use it (possibly). I'll give more details about it when I post the bonus video though.

    Level is an issue, but for whatever reason I remember running it with only 5. Do you get bonuses for having fewer people? I remember there being bonuses for speedy clearing.

    Yeah, I saw that. It's neat, and a cool attention to detail! Could have just had one generic one.

    Though, I was wondering during the mission we got Terepat why we'd not just... tamed a purple dragon in the first place.

    Quest Mode [] doesn't contribute to any proper kill counts...
    Duly noted.

    Let's have a taste of something...really good.

    A Taste Of: Dandara

    Video Length: 15:22

    A beautiful Metroidvania with an amazing style and the unique feature of you not actually being able to walk. All you do is jump and shoot, and gravity has no real hold on you. It's...really fascinating and unique and I love it. This game is beautiful, and really interesting, and I should honestly have played more of it by now but I haven't due to various reasons. I don't have much else to say otherwise, this is a game that speaks for itself.

    Huh. That's a unique little concept. And, yeah, very stylish and flowing. I imagine no actual walking'd take a bit to get used to, but it seems rather well designed, interface-wise, to help with that.

    I feel like a lot of people slept on Dandara entirely since I've heard no one talk about it at all. A shame, that.

    Hmm. This may end up being the second game I pick up off one of your threads. First was Momodora (well.. admittedly, that was part of a Humble Monthly bundle, but your playthrough was the main reason I installed it.)

    I find myself strongly reminded of Owlboy. Two different RPG-platformers that make some pretty major changes to the core of what a platformer is.
