well people, i have several things to say.... i'll do a double post, starting what i wrote for slj and assault_freak. in the next post, i'll ask some questions and give some more coments.
some weeks ago, i was able to buy a psvita to play odin sphere at work, or while traveling, so i was able to continue playing for trying to make the guide.
at first, the game was harder tan the original version, because this remake has platforming, some doors need keys to open, and you can't know where the doors are. but i've managed to solve those problems nicely, thanks to having the game in a portable device like the vita.
about the platforming, you can't die or hurt yourself if you fall, so that's a positive. but the characters in odin sphere are very movile, meaning that even if you do a wrong jump, you can do a double jump, you can even use some attacks to gain altitude to reach the area or platform you want. platforming is a joke for these characters, definitely.
next up is unlocking doors.
in some stages, when you win a battle, you gain keys that you need to open closed doors. these doors are easily found by sighted people because they have a map, but for us, they doesn't make any sound, and there's no indicative of where they are.
this was frustrating me a lot, because... you know, a great game with lots of story, great voice acting and combat mechanics and? .. well, fortunately, i discovered something that saved owr lives hahaha.
teleportation!. at specific areas of the stage, there are checkpoints. kind of. by pressing select or touchpad in ps4 and then start, you can Access a menu with all the checkpoints you have reached. by selecting one, your character will teleport immediately to that place and know what? every area of the game that needs a key to unlock a door, has a checkpoint! furthermore, when selecting a chekpoint from the menu, it doesn't wrap around so it's even easier for us!.
next up is alchemy.....
as you win battles, you will get some items that can be used to create alchemy potions. these include healing potions, antidotes, tornadoes to attack enemies, and more.
i've discovered that if you press triangle while mixing items, you can Access a menu with all your available recipes to mix. by selecting one, and if you have the ingredients, the game will do the mixing for you and that's all, you can have your potion!
next up is... skills.
in every stage of the game, there are three skills for your character.
you get one after clearing a specific area of the stage, one is hidden inside the stage and the last one is given to the character when defeating the boss of the stage.
of course, the problem is the hidden skill of each stage. but fortunately, i was able to find all of them at the moment! i'm at the 3rd book, meaning, i'm using the 3rd character and the other two i have used already have all of theyr skills!.
to use these skills or power or special attacks or whatever you want to name them, you can select them from a menu, or assign shortcuts.
one shortcut is circle, another is up +circle, down+circle, and so on.
another way to do them is assigning them to directions + buttons, like if you were playing a fighting game. down, forward + square, forward, down forward + square, down, up + square. and so on.
with the help of a sighted friend, we recorded how they appear in the menu for assigning them.
after all of this, do you understand why i haven't updated the guide yet? this sounds nice, but it took me a long, long time to figure all these things out, hours and hours trying to find a skill, trying to mix potions, wasting items and backtracking to the point of extreme boredom. but it's done and i'm advancing pretty quickly now!...
considering the Little time i have, and that i'm living with my girlfriend and can't find sighted people to help like before.....
i even found the shop lists in a japanese site and i'm translating the list into english so we can have everithing we need... trust me, i'll do the guide, i'm puting a lot of work in this game.
there's more, like the timeline to view story events, but that's easy and i think this is enough for now, it was an extremely long message! hahaha.
you deserved an explanation, so i wrote all of this. i think i'll send this message to the forum as well.
any coment is apreciated!
