Waking Up Lovestruck.

They fall in love with each other every morning. It has become a comfortable routine. Sometimes Makoto has to touch Haru to make sure he’s real. And each morning, he realizes that Haru is better than he could ever dream.

I just love drawing these two so much. About 4.5 hours on SAI.

So Jade Empire is a BioWare game made in 2005. I was 10 when I started playing it on my sisters XBox and I consider it a core part of my childhood and gaming history, along with games like Fable: The Lost Chapters, Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, and Stranger’s Wrath. It has a lot of sentimental value to me. As such, I would love to recommend it to you.

The game takes place in the heavily Chinese-based land of the Jade Empire. You start as a simple student in the town of Two Rivers, training under Master Li. You are just about done with your training when a group of assassin’s attack your village. After defeating them, your master reveals your mysterious past to you and his true name; Sun Li the Glorious Strategist. Upon discovery of his location, the ruthless Lotus Assassin’s capture him and destroy the town you grew up in. You must go in search of your beloved master and seek revenge for your home.

Now, I recently bought it on Steam(for $15) and started playing it again. A lot has changed about it because I have changed, and I realize now that it isn’t as perfect as I remember. That’s what I want totalk about first. The flaws.

1. Repetitive combat. If you’re like me, and gameplay isn’t important to you, than this will be easy to ignore. There are very few games I play for playing’s sake. I play games almost solely for story, so this didn’t bother me much at all. But people have said that the combat gets repetitive pretty fast.

2. Somewhat flawed morality system. In the game, you can follow the Way of the Open Palm, the “good” side, or the Way of the Closed Fist, the “evil” side. Now, choosing which Path you follow is easy. In conversations, the choice of dialogue is obvious, and looking at your characters facial expressions on some of the speaking choices can easily give you an idea of what Path you’d be going down by choosing them. And at points, the philosophies can contradict. Here’s a non-spoiler example of the system being flawed:

At some point, you invade a pirate workshop while searching for the person who captured your master. Earlier, you meet a mother and her daughter who were fleeing from their town to try and make it in the wilderness, because the town was going through a rough time. Regardless of what you say to convince them to stay, they leave, and you find them later, having been captured by the pirates. The pirates are working with slave traders and plan to sell the mother and daughter. The mother urges you to find and rescue her daughter. You find her later, about to be tortured by the slave breaker. You defeat the slave breaker and can either let her go, take her from the slave trader and sell her yourself, or you can make her fight for her freedom. You can urge her to take a knife and kill her slaver. To fight and defend herself. Your follower at the time will ask you not to do this. If you insist, the girl will do it, just as her mother runs into the room. She’s not happy about what you made her girl do. The girl, Fuyao, says, “I think I liked it when the knife went in. It made me feel like people have to listen to me now.” And you get evil points. So, apparently, by making this girl stand up for herself, by making her be strong, you’re an evil bastard and the girl is now a stab-happy nutter. I very much doubt that’s how it works.

So the morality system is easy to figure out and contradicts at times. And on top of it, it doesn’t even really matter in the end. I mean, in the end, the game gives you a little description of what the characters did after the events of the game, like, “[Character] went on to do [such and such].” What Path you follow may effect that some, but the ending is still the ending.

3. Some plot twists are obvious. You can easily tell what’s going to happen at times. Like, when [that one thing happens], you’re not really gonna be surprised. Some parts in the game have a very strong, “Well, who didn’t see that coming?” effect.

That’s all I can really think of for flaws.

But it’s not a bad game.

1. It’s very scenic. I loved running through the game and looking at the scenery. The Great Southern Forest was beautiful. Two Rivers was beautiful. The game was just beautiful.

2. Interesting characters. I feel the characters make this game. Specifically, your Followers. After every major mission, I highly recommend going back to your camp/base, because a cut scene will start and some conversation will be exchanged. And if you talk to your Followers on the regular, you discover more about them. Kang the Mad takes you on flyer missions to find something about his past that he can’t remember, and the Black Whirlwind is fucking great. He is my favorite. I love listening to his stories. He gets deep when doing The Arena quests. Especially talk to Wild Flower.

3. While fighting can be repetitive, it can be fun and challenging, even on Normal difficulty. And the Flyer mini-games are fun, if not aggravating at times.

4. Women characters are treated just as male characters. In fact, there are very times when your gender is brought up. Your skill as a fighter is not questioned when playing as a woman, and your female Followers, and some other female characters, are very strong.

5. Gay romance. Need I say more? I will. There are three characters you can romance; two females(Dawn Star and Silk Fox) and one male(Sky). If you play as a male, all three are available to you, though not all at once. You can romance the two girls at the same time though, if you do it right. As a female, you can only romance either Silk Fox or Sky.

Now let me give you some advice:

1. As you level up, you can level up Health, Chi(magic), or Focus(which allows you to use weapons and avoid traps). Even if you like to play only strong characters and don’t care for magic, please pay attention to all three. Chi can be very important.

2. You also get Style points, used to upgrade your different fighting styles, which fall under the categories of: Martial, Support, Weapon, Transformation, and Magic. The game will not reward you for being a jack-of-all-trades. Through the game, if you don’t grind(which is only available while in The Great Southern Forest or The Necropolis and is very annoying), you’ll probably only get up to levels 23/25 out of 32, which, if I remember correctly, is the max level. This will give you more than enough style points to fully upgrade four/five styles. Pick four/five and stick with them. And don’t stress about leveling all the way. You’ll do just fine at 23 or so.

3. Do not upgrade any Magic or Support style. Not worth it. I recommend the Martial Style “Thousand Cuts.” This style is best for button spammers. “Leaping Tiger’ is also good. When using weapons, I suggest staves, as they keep enemies away from you. The first one you get is Golden Star. When fully upgraded, it doesn’t cost any focus. Replacing this weapon with ones such as Flawless or Demon Staff will drain Focus, so do not grab them! Yes, they do more damage, but the Focus cost isn’t worth it. Same with swords. The best weapon in the game is one you get after finishing The Arena quests in chapter three. You get dual axes called Tang’s Vengeance. But your first weapon will do you fine until you get these. You can fully upgrade your first weapon and still fully upgrade the dual axes later, if you like, so don’t worry.

4. The best Transformation style is Demon Horse, which you get after defeating one in chapter two. Going into Transformation form will drain Chi, but you can defeat enemies damn fast when using the Demon Horse’s power attack. Golems and other demons are NOTHING. If you’re ever having problems defeating an enemy, just use Demon Horse and go into Focus Mode. That motherfucker will be done like dinner.

5. Fighting tip: You can roll backwards during fights. With most enemies, rolling forward when you’re close to them will make you jump over them. Roll back twice, the enemy will kinda walk towards you, roll forward once. This will make you roll into them and will cancel any attack they’re doing and will stun them for a second. Attack them. So this makes it so enemies rarely touch you and you get to sneak in attacks. Rinse and repeat the tactic and the enemy will be dead before you know it.

6. The game features an artifact called the Amulet, which you can place gems into and they give you bonuses, like +Health or +Chi. Now, at times in the game, you will have to make speaking checks using either Charm(which leans towards the Open Palm path), Intuition(neutral/no path), and Intimidation(leans towards the Closed Fist path). I suggest using your amulet solely to boost your minor stats(Charm, Intuition, or Intimidation). You can forego major stat(Health/Chi/Focus) bonuses and be just fine. As you go through the game, you’ll get more pieces of the amulet, which allows you to place more gems. Though I do suggest that just before the final boss, take out all minor stat gems and put some in for major stats, since at that point, you’ll no longer be presented with speaking checks and you may need the extra boost. Also, even though the Gem of the Frail Scholar reduces your Health by three points, please use it because you gain some EXP from reading scroll/bookstands and having that gem equipped gives you full EXP from those things, which can help you level up faster.

7. Don’t be a pacifist. At times, there may be options to avoid a fight. Don’t do that. Fight as many times as you can.

8. Talk to everyone.

9. Do all side-quests. Like, why wouldn’t you do every side quest available? Really. Also, explore. Fill out your map! Go to every inch of the map and look for things! But at this point, I’m just giving average gaming advice any gamer would give you.

That’s all I can think to say on the matter. Missthneed, if you do decide to play this game, you can come to me for advice on anything, from which fighting styles you should focus on to which decisions you should make. I’m here to help :o) Have fun!

AND ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING!

Amnesia-inator reblogged this and made an excellent point. And I remembered something else as well.

10. Upgrade Spirit Thief! It allows you to steal Chi from enemies, as Chi allows you to use Transformation styles and heals you! It’s saved my butt from certain death many times. But some enemies are immune to it.

11. Your followers can either be in Attack mode or Support mode. Some do better in one mode or the other. In support mode, Dawn Star slowly replenishes your chi throughout the battle, Sagacious Zu increases your weapon damage, etc. Some characters are only attack mode(Black Whirlwind) or support mode(Henpecked Hou). Enemies will ignore your Followers while they are in support mode, so don’t worry about keeping them safe.

This is the last thing, I promise! XD
