I need to get my ass on PSN so I can pick up gems like this. Never played the original, dunno if I'd ever even track down a copy, but now I can do it properly :D

We are operating on the assumption that PSN is ever going to come back up (so far, seems unlikely).

I never played Threads of Fate, but will probably wind up checking it out. I have heard good things about it.

Finally I can play this game again and not worry about it freezing during the Jungle level.

I've never understood what was good about this game. Someone please explain.

04-27-2011, 07:34 PM
Nostalgia? I was eight when I decided it was my favorite game, so take that to mean whatever you want it to.

Also, to any new players wondering who to pick first, Mint's story is superior in every way, but Rue's story is canon.

And PSN isn't going to stay down forever, are you nuts? xD

I'm looking forward to this coming out to PSN, whenever it gets back up. It better not disappoint, or I'll have you to blame, Jessweeeenote!!

Del, to get the ♪ hold down the Alt key and type out 13 on the number pad. :p

I refuse. The alt key is way over there. :colbert:

04-27-2011, 09:39 PM
On my laptop I have to hold the fn key too :(

Yeah, that effin fn key.

I got this game last night and I was in nolstalgia heaven. Hey everyone make sure to buy a copy.

06-13-2011, 03:18 PM
It's great having portable Threads of Fate x3

Eh, it's okay I guess. I'm not going to spend $6 for it though.

06-19-2011, 10:59 PM
I'd rather know I own a copy of the game rather than dealing with a network that could potentially strangle-screw me backwards by accident... happily for them the accident would mean I'd have to spend money again, yeah?

06-19-2011, 11:14 PM
I always liked to own a hard copy of games... then I lost $150 worth of PSP games while traveling last summer. Now I see the appeal of digital copies :D

Whenever I buy a PSP game from PSN I copy the game and .rif to my computer's hard drive so I can swap it out easily. If you want to be extra secure, do that and copy it to a flash drive too! It's unlikely you'd lose both copies at the same time. As long as you have the .rif you don't need to sign into PSN to play. But if you just like the feel of a physical copy, there's nothing wrong with that.

How far are you in this game? I got mad when I got a Game Over at the Ghost temple against Duke and haven't tried it again knowing that I have to do that entire dungeon over. That boss fight is stupid. The game's mechanics for some reason makes me hit those random vases around the stage causing me to injure myself. Duke's hitbox is also offly weird and I have to hit him at very specific moments and I do crap damage to boot.

06-20-2011, 04:00 AM
Do the dungeon all over? I didn't think it was possible to run out of coins since the game is so generous with them xD

But yeah, that's one of the trickier fights. I usually start out by luring him towards stuff that's gonna explode in my face and then move away at just the right time. Once everything's all smashed up I go after him and that seems to work well enough. Also if you haven't been doing this already, always buy the equipment upgrades. They make a huge difference!

Oh. I had in my head the visualization of a PS1/2 disc. I forgot how small PSP disks are. I've never lost any though. I sold $500 worth of games and got $150. I HATE GAMESTOP! I would have used eBay or something else, but it takes too long to get buyers.

I feel dumb as fuck. I could've beaten Duke easier by hitting three times each instead of hitting him once then running away. I was treating him like I was fighting Rod who you can't do that against or he'll counterattack you. The item hitting was still troublesome. Right now Maya's Tower has just appeared. I was wondering what the stone items do in this game. I have a lot of them, but was worried if I sold them I would regret it. The Legendary stuff I presume has some use to it too.

06-22-2011, 08:51 PM
The stones you can sell. The only one that has any use is the dream stone, which can be found in the Hotel room (the one you have to pay for). Sleep in the bed after you get it to have a dream, and then you can sell that too. The legendary items do have a use, so don't sell them!


Other special items: Brooch, Rare Wine, and some little statue thing can be sold to an NPC for extra money. Red Wine can also be sold to Hobbs for a HUGE discount on stat boosts, and The Last Hero can be given to Rod for a nice Strength boost.

Depression Moon
06-24-2011, 02:28 PM
Yeah I got most of that stuff. Didn't get The Last Hero on this playthrough because I didnt think about grabbing that Spectre and shapeshifting into it to make that flower bloom. Had the wine, didn't know what to do with it and I looked it up and I didn't miss much. I was able to beat the game without it.

So yeah. I beat the game for the first time in I don't know how many years sometime yesterday. Now I have to beat it with Mint. I'll probably do it after I beat Super Mario Bros. 2.

Depression Moon

Just beat Mint's game. I forgot that hers changes quite significantly from Rue's towards the end. It felt like her story was a bit longer than his. Man seeing the secret ending has made me hype. If they were to make a sequel I wonder which character's ending they would go with? Obviously they wouldn't go entirely with Mint's since the secret ending did have Claire revived.

I'm thinking that they will integrate some parts of both, but which ones?

07-17-2011, 07:38 PM
Yeah, I think both. If it were me, I'd go with Rue's story for the most part, adding in the puppet invasion events from Mint's. Rue's ending also has Mint go back to the castle, I believe.

Depression Moon
07-17-2011, 07:51 PM
I was wondering if they would bring back Mode, Trap, and Psycho Master. At the end of Mint's playthrough I walked into the church. No one was in it, but just when I left the three of them briefly showed up. I think the same thing happens if you play with Rue. I wouldn't bring them back. They served their purpose in that game.

07-24-2011, 07:42 PM
This game wasn't my cup of tea.
