7th Saga can bite my ass

Tried breaking this one out of the vault and BOY am I regretting it... I've barely started the game and I've had to level up like mad. Not only that but I've had my ass handed to me on enough occasions that I'm not sure if I have the cajones to beat, or even survive a portion of, this game.

That is a hard, hard game. Hard core, too, in that it's pretty sparse and you're stuck leveling up for hours fighting the same two or three enemies in an area over and over and over.

I had this game and never beat it but got pretty far. I remember that I really liked the atmosphere of the game at the time. It felt desolate, and gave you that feeling of going on a long, lonely trek. Good music, too.

I remember this game being about the time that I decided Square was really pulling ahead of Enix. 7S felt kind of simple compared to the FF stuff at the time.

Weird thing that sticks out in my mind: You can play this game one-handed! L and Select cancel and confirm. I thought that was so cool back in the day... Man I was easily amused.

Okay, a few things.

- Chose the right character. For beginners I suggest picking Kamil and then Valsu as a partner. Valsu becomes immortal late-game but sucks ass early on, so don't flip this order. Other characters are tricky for beginners; Olvan is pretty similar to Kamil but slower. Lejes should never be picked, as he's a total soyboy and the easiest apprentice to (potentially) battle later in the game.
- Alternate defend and attack. You need to defend to "charge" attacks. Mashing the attack command leads to instant death.
- The power-leveling isn't too egregious. Just make sure you can afford all current equipment before you leave each town. Don't bother with the "banking" jewels. Just save often and reset if you get cucked.
- Make frequent use of the runes and stat boosting items. There's no way through the game otherwise.

Do not give up. This game rules. RULES.

I liked the game a lot. Been a very long time since I played it but I remember it had a fair amount of twists and turns as to how things developed. Not for all tastes but we all have different things we like in video games.

Bone, we have found a brother-in-arms.

This game went out of my collection years ago. I have so little time to play games and so many I want to play, this one isn't even on my radar any more.

Kinda bummed. You made a post and I thought you might want a little assistance and now you turn around and dump the game. Sad times dude.

To be fair, the original post was over 11 years ago :lol:

Bone, this might be the single greatest necro-bump I've ever seen. With the subtle garnishes of "soyboy," and "cucked"--mwah! I will be toasting you tonight.

Seriously, how did you even dig this up? Were you just searching the forums for "7th Saga"?
