I'm in your YummyDrumsticks, stealing your naming schtick.

I want your games to not suck. Thus, I will tear them apart!

I'm not very nice, but it's for the greater good, I swear. Feel free to present your game if you're interested in an LT, but don't go spamming every LTer (...YDS and I). Watch a few of our videos and see if you can handle the heat. In addition, know that I'm going to LT whatever I feel like; I don't have to do your game.

If you don't want me to potentially review your game, don't show it to me. If you want some strong critique from a guy that's been around for a while, let's talk!

I disagree with your hate for double exclamation points, but the rest of your criticism is valid!! Expect lots of NPC changes in the next patch, as well as the grammar/typo fixes you pointed out.

Regarding the first battle area that you tore into: My goal was to make battles easy for beginners. I always found it frustrating when I started playing an RPG maker game, and get overwhelmed with tough battles in the first area. To me, it never made sense from a design standpoint, but I'll see what I can do to make the forest battles more interesting, even if it means giving enemies different resistance. At the very least, I'll make the encounters less frequent and give the slimes more experience or something.

There is a difference between "easy" and "insultingly boring." Part of it stems from your boring movesets, though - there's only so much you can do with attack/elemental spell/heal.

You have a lot of the presentation and wit down, now work on the gameplay! Battles, specifically; the dungeons are passable so far. Nothing too fancy, nothing horrible.
I'll be following this too, Craze. Watching as we speak!

Updated with the second session of Everlasting Journey. Your forests piss me off!
Edit: No, seriously though - out of all the things you can say: "WHY NOT JUST CALL I ETHER!"?

NB, it actually became an issue! There are Eths and Ethers. Ethers are rarer and restore MP to the entire party - because of the names and their similarity to Final Fantasy, I accidentally used Ethers instead of Eths twice in one boss battle.

Does anyone else even have this issue? I can't even imagine having difficulty remembering Eth is for one person and Ether is for the full party.

When you're quickly going through your items in the middle of an active-time boss battle (yes, with wait; that doesn't stop +1 player energy level) and you see ETHER one click down, the Final Fantasy nameset goes "that's what you want! Use it!" and suddenly, you're down a rare item.
lol, Ethers aren't that rare. You'll see them in shops soon for like 60 gold a piece. If the general consensus is "change the names, because they're too confusing" I'll gladly change them. It would just take a while to find all of the instances of "Eth/Ether" in text boxes.

"Ether/Morther" would go along with the Potion/Mortion" gag at least.

Just use dreamaker and Notepad++, CTRL+F: find and replace, Ether for Eth and you're done. Should take you less than 5 minutes at most.
You could call it Eth and Meth.

...This has never happened to me ever. I'm not even that far yet and I have a ton of ethers; so they aren't that rare either.

Well, I don't know if you'd be more keen on this than YDS, but I welcome your tearing! If you really don't want to, though, I understand. It wouldn't be the first time.
The thing is though... Ether is actually a real substance, so it's not a wierd name. Eth, however, is not.

Bring for the tearing! http://rpgmaker.net/users/Dark Gaia/games/

Take your pick, or if you want, wait until January and try the demo of Undying Eternal when it comes out.

I am aware, but, I'm not at all going for realism here. :)
I can assure you that being around ether will not make you feel more energised. It just gives you headaches.

Fucking shitty ventilation in undergrad labs...

I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

Tear me up, Craze. Rip me apart and break me, event by event, pixel by pixel, battle by battle, until there's nothing left but a heap of rubble and a single spark of light. That light is knowledge, it is truth, and if you destroy everything else then I will take that light and embrace it. And with that light I will become the greatest kung fu pokemon game design master the world has ever know.

If you spend the entire time complaining about 2k3 I will punch you though. Put the game on wait mode if you hate the bugs in active mode so much! And also be aware that the reason it's in 2k3 is because I started creating it in 2003, and it took me like six years to finish. My next project will be in a newer engine, I swear!
