  1. Yeah it is confusing in the beginning. The walktrough presumes that you have already unlocked most places on the worldmap and doesn't tell you how. This is the section you need: https://romancing-saga-3.blogspot.com/p/rs3-world-map.html#open Just do everything on that page and you can unlock like 90% of the worldmap in a short time. oh yeah, the trophy guide on playstationtrophies.org is finished and I have bad news: You only unlock the ending-trophy for your MC. That means the game requires 8 playthroughs That is going to take some time... I personally hope for some sort of speedrun guide.
  2. I looked through some old walktroughs on gamefaqs and I think the trophies for getting all character voices and movies are missable. You cannot just recruit a character, get the trophy and reload. You have to actually beat the game with every character to unlock the voices in the gallery. Therefore 3 playtroughs might be needed. Have a look at this recruitment flowchart: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/psp/939439-star-ocean-first-departure/map/7467-character-recruitment-flowchart EDIT: "The adventure continues" is also missable. You need to trigger the correct PAs for Ronxy and Millia to end up together.
  3. I played that game years ago on the psp, but I barely remember it. Only thing I know is that it is short but pretty fun. I am going to buy it again. Not sure about missable trophies. It might be doable in one playthrough with some backup saves, but 2 or maybe 3 playthroughs are more likely. Too bad that there is no new game + feature.
  4. I barely played SaGa Frontier and don't remember it well. But I would say it is a good comparison.
  5. No, the game does not explain anything at all, not even quest goals. It is actually pretty complex and cryptic at times. There are growth rate, tech sparking rate, weapon type favourites, learning and mastering skills.... You might want to read a bit about the system. Try this site: https://romancing-saga-3.blogspot.com/ Otherwise, just kill a lot of stuff with a party you like.
  6. No, the stories are not related. It's like the Final Fantasy series: there are nods and cameos for fans. But otherwise you need no prior knowledge.
  7. I started playing the game yesterday and I completely forgot how cryptic it is. A few tips: -Talk with all NPCs. You unlock new town, dungeons and quests sometime. -Visit the harbour and look if you can buy passage to new towns. Once you visited them, they are opened on the worldmap. -Use the guide I linked above and just do some quest to grow stronger. -To actually continue the story you need to progress certain quests, to unlock the 4 abyss gates. Also you need to grind a bit, to be able to survive. -If a character reaches 0 LP he or she dies permanently! you can refresh LP in Inns or with potions. -Commander Mode: Choose a formation for one character less than in your party (so a 4-character formation with 5 member). Your main character becomes the commander. This changes the battle system completely. This is especially important with Sara. Put her in commander mode asap and keep her there. Sara is the only one who fights the final battle in commander mode, therefore you should train her for that. I am not sure how useful it is for everybody else. -Do not run into enemies. Your formation will break. Be sure to always walk into an encounter. -For trophies, it was already said, but: You need at least two whole playtroughs. One with Sara, one with Katherine as the MC. These two can't be recruited otherwise. You might wait a bit, if this is to cryptic for you. The guy who wrote the Romancing Saga 2 trophy guide on playstationtrophies.org is working on a guide for this game. Otherwise try out the linked guide.
  8. Have a look at the walktrough-section of this site: https://romancing-saga-3.blogspot.com/ It list every main- and sidequest sorted after difficulty. So you play the game in the most efficient manner. As to what to do: Do whatever quest you like. Grind a lot. Recruit characters you plan to use. The main quest you have to do are the abyss gates. Look them up. The game does not hold your hand. You can do pretty much everything you like.
  9. Another two VNs for this list: Death Mark - It plays like a first-person point and click adventure with rpg-like battles. Its is a horror game similiar to the Corpse Party franchise. It has a really good story with an awesome twist at the end. If you're into freaky, messed up japanese horror in the style of Junji Itō, this one is for you. The sequel Spirit Hunter NG is also pretty good, though a bit weaker in my personal opinion. Raging Loop - This one is pretty new. I didn't expected a lot of it in the beginning, but the story really gripped me after a while. I is (another) horror-story about a remote village which is is plagued by supernatural murders. It reminds me strongly of Higurashi no naku koro ni. Give it a try and just ignore the fact, that most people here on psnprofiles just play the game for an easy 15 minutes plat.
  10. I would like to add another two outstanding VN: Clannad, an absolute classic. It might be a bit too anime-ish for some, but the story is a pure emotional rollercoaster. One of only a few games which ever might me cry. A House in Fata Morgana. Sadly this is not that well known, which is a shame. It is a masterpiece of a dark, victorian horror story. Also, if you are not limited to the ps4, look on steam after the When they cry franchise. That are two series, Higurashi and Umineko. If you are into Murder, mystery, horror storys those VNs are perfect for you.
  11. I just finished the first route of the game and I am really intrigued. I thought this game one of the many mediocore VNs, which I played too many of, but I the story is actually really fascinating. It bears a strong resemblence to the Higurashi and Umineko franchise. And I am a sucker for murder-mystery horror stories. So yeah, definitely play the game and enjoy the story. while I get that many people are playing just for trophies, it is a real shame to skip this game in like 15 minutes just for a plat. It is the same for the utterly brilliant VN The House in Fata Morgana.
  12. I am completely unable to play anything that requires quick reactions, if I am even slightly intoxicated. And because I can't hold my drink at all, I stopped drinking and playing together 😬 Seriously, how can you play any action-based game if you need seconds to realize what happens on screen?
  13. I think the trophy for killing 5 bosses might be glitched with this patch. I've finished the whole Martyr-scenario before the patch dropped, so I should have like 2 kills (I didn't look at the counter). But after the patch the counter said 0 progress. After finishing both the Drukari and the Khorne scenario, I got only 1 single boss kill... Well, whatever. I never planned to get platinum, but still... Right now I am finished with the game. Maybe I re-install it one day and finish my second run with an assassin.
  14. I started the game yesterday. I have just finished the prologue but I like what i've seen so far. Nice atmosphere and setting. The main character seems a bit a bit of a cliche, but I'm not disliking him. I really dig the sound effects, which are straight out of death mark. And of course the little nods to the prequel, like the idol dressing up like Mary and a few odd comments I think I will have a good time with this game. I won't rush it or play it with a guide. I going for a blind first run, to enjoy it as much as possible.
  15. I bought the game on release-day with the season pass and finished the trophies to 100%. It took me 92 hours over the course of a year. Also I skipped most cutscenes during the DLC-episodes. The story started to bore me. I actually hope that they won't add anymore trophies. I don't want to touch it anymore. Also I am happy the next AC won't be released until 2020
