W-summon doubles a summon, quadra magic multiplies the casting of any spell or summon by 4 (so 8 castings for the price of 1). mimic will replicate this, but there are only 2 of this materia in the game. The game doesn't let you do this with knights of the round but you can do this with the second longest/second most pwerful summon, Bahamut Zero.

which all boils down to the fact that the idea of a good story in game is dead amirite? I don't think I've played a game in ages that had a deep grabbing story. The only good RPG to hit the newer consoles was Tales of Symphonia for the game cube, because the character development was superb. All it is about now is fancy flashy graphics.

Man, those 3-D incremental risk graphs in WiiActuary blow my mind.

So...recounting video game mechanics for someone you are assuming is rusty with them because they haven't played in a while is posting like a newb? I thought I was just clarifying myself after having confused someone.

Er, no? What about Half Life 2? Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines? Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2? Prey? Neverwinter Nights 2? These are just examples from the top of my head (read: the shelf above my monitor). While some of them might not stand up to classics like Arcanum or Fallout the telling of a good story is far from dead.

did it actually prevent you from doing it? I thought the only problem was
a) you had to level up Knights of the Round to level 4 (so you could summon it 4 times)
b) you had to use hp<->mp switch to get around the 999 mp limit.

I never bothered to quadra it. Never needed it that bad.

KOTOR 1 had a good story. KOTOR was free play until the crammed a story down your throat in the last hour and a half.

Maniac mansion. Best. Story. EVAR!



More RPG's, and other games in general, should be like this game, specifically the fact that if you fuck up bad enough you have to start over again. Metal gear solid was not the first game to do this, shocking as it may be.

I always liked that you got a different game if you used different characters.
