Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

Support production of the LoQO games at - Patreon
And/Or follow me on - Twitter

Here we are again, after the release of Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Episode II v2.01!
Obviously, this update will be very short and basically contain no information besides the download link to episode 2 of LoQOO, in case you didn't realize the text above was a URL. ;)
So, yeah...! Since last Tuesday, not much else has been done besides launching the public release and spending the following days pointing folks in the right direction.

Although, I suppose I could mention that if you haven't noticed the recent update to my Patreon, I'm now also rewarding access to LoQO based comics/doujins for $5 pledges and the tiers above.
But let's be honest, nobody will be reading this in the first place since you should be too busy exploring the Beldorian Empire to listen to me in the first place for this week. ;D

And with that, I'll see you again for the next update!

  1. Got some questions again:
    1) I've been wondering, why do LoQO girls never talk about, for example, trading cards that the main character collects under their noses? Are you planning to add any dialogues with them based on their worldwide sex adventures? It'd be really interesting to know each girl's personal opinions and reactions on it.

    2) Will Beatrix's daughter, Elin, make an appearance in the game?

    3) Are Valencio and Black Dame related somehow?

    1. 1) They are never mentioning it so when they indeed DO that, it'll have far more of an amusing impact. x3

      2) Most likely, yes.

      3) If they are, it would be a spoiler to confirm it. :3

      Delete
    2. 1) But what about trading cards? The girls could at least mention some of their experience like Gabrielle does. She sometimes gives comments about trading cards scenes where she participated.
      Why can't, for example, Ra'Tiki say a few words about her once trying to get into Howling Moon clan? Or Black Dame - about her "special ways" to gain some information?

      2) Great. (ง ͠° ͟ل͜ ͡°)ง

      3) I see, I see... Well, at least they're both mysterious.

      Delete
    3. Or you can let it up to the individual player if the trading cards are canon or not, just saying.

      Delete
    4. Yeah, I remember Gabe said it once. But wasn't it mentioned some time after it that they should be considered canon for LoQO:O?

      Otherwise, it would feel really... outlandish. "It's definitely canon in the case of Gabrielle, but it may be or may be not canon in the case of everyone else". Sounds like a half-measure. "No more half-measures", Mike Ehrmantraut once said, and in cases like this one I'd agree with him. Because sometimes they're the least rational decision.

      Delete
    5. In lore the cards are produced by the league of perverts spying on women so sometimes they get the material they're looking for and sometimes they don't so then they make stuff up. And plus with Gabrielle her cards were treated as a whole different thing/separate from the other cards in LOQO 2 in terms of lore. So it doesn't seem like a half-measure to me, it makes sense.

      Delete
    6. Still, there're some issues. If there are non-made up scenes, so why don't let the girls mention about them from time to time?

      I personally can't enjoy fan-art as much as pictures which shows scenes that really happened in a certain universe (in our case - in LoQO). At least because canon illustrations tells us more about its participants characters while fan-art does not.

      I myself would like to know which of LoQO illustrations should be considered more as fan-art and which of them should be considered as canon artwork. And I guess, I'm not the only one who would.

      Delete
    7. If they don't talk about them that says something about their personality to.
      But it seems that were at a fork in the road personally i like the freedom to choose/the ambiguity of some things and not that big on being told everything up front in a story so consequently i like stuff like dark souls lore a lot.
      In any case i still think there's a good solid lore explanation of how things are now.

      Delete
    8. Ehh... So many different opinions and so few opportunities to make everyone happy...

      Delete
    9. Personally I prefer that the cards are non canon, they are more a celebration of the characters personality. So it's kinda like breaking the forth wall to me, which I like. The cards are windows into Gabes mind within the game.

      Delete
    10. I'm in for the non-canon or ambiguously canon options as well. Remember how originally they were meant for Gabrielle only, and they were mentioned pretty explicitly in the story.
      But some of the scenarios presented in them in Origin REALLY don't fit the characters, or at least my image of them, like Beatrix or Ra'Tiki.

      Also
      ---SPOILERS BELOW---






      There's also the issue of Kythie being present in the card menu (curse you Gabe for not releasing Sparrow's artwork of her in full res) - which flat out does NOT make any sense - she literally JUST started existing.
      And speaking of Kythie, I have to say she is really fucking cute and I usually hate furry characters. Which makes me dread the fact she is most likely going to get the scenario of all other female characters - that is of a bike where every monster, horse and whatever gets a ride, with the player character somewhere in between. I mean, it just makes sense for her to be for Devon only, you know?
      I am faintly hoping that the first scene directly after Ep 2 includes her and Devon in EXTREMELY TENDER VANILLA HEALING SEX WHILE HOLDING HANDS.
      Just once.
      PLEASE.

      Delete
    11. To ...SPOILEROUS... 0nymous:

      As for Kythie I could imagine that she'd be participating in the trading cards actions some time after her appearance. The trading cards simply could be put in locations which take time to get there and meanwhile Kythie could be acting for the trading cards.
      Or they could just show events of the future.

  2. Phhhhhhh plese if there's one thing the game thought us is how to play the game with one hand and do.....other things with the other, like browsing the blog! Who say games never teach you anything!

  3. One short question about something completely different though:
    Since the artists for the third beast mode started working last month, any clue how much artwork for the ero content of episode II is already finished?
    Just so we have a vague idea at what speed it'll likely progress towards beta implementation?

    Replies
    1. Just one, and I've scolded him about it.
      Our deal is around 2-3 illustrations per month.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for telling. (^-^)d

      Delete
    3. Wow, you scolded him? Is it because the art is bad or is it because of his speed?

      Delete
    4. Well I have to be stern with those working with me, because at the end of the day, I'm the only one getting the blame if things are behind schedule. x3

      Delete
  4. How's the international edition coming along? I mean I'm not expecting the artist to be caught up with the others, I'm just curious.

    But more importantly, have you truly run out of movie quotes or jokes to go with the updates? I just want to know if it's time to say "RIP" or not.

    1. Read comment above.

      And I think I'm out of quotes for now, it was never meant to be "additional work" which it would be if I have to specifically go looking for quotes every week. xD

      Delete
    2. I scold him as well >:(

      But actually, I thought international edition covered everybody, both human and beastman. Is international just for beastman? It's still cool either way.

      And as for movie quotes, I shall give them the Halo send off. "Spartans never die, they are just missing in action"

      Delete
    3. Never mind, I just went to your past post to see the answer. It's just when Jaht ^^ called it third beast mode I got a little worried

      Delete
    4. Yeah, that was me messing up, sorry.
      I noticed it myself but apperently, you can't edit comments here, so I could not correct it. (._. )

      My deepest apologies for making you worry.

  6. Does Episode 2 also contain Episode 1 or is that something that has to be downloaded separately?

    I hope I'll be able to enjoy this game as I've never really been able to get into your games to be honest.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Each subsequent episode includes all previous ones. So, basically Episode II is content from Episode I + content from Episode II.

      Delete
    2. Thanks. Hopefully the gameplay will be fun enough to keep me interested in this one.

      Delete
    3. What's holding you back from enjoying the games in the past? Just curious.

      Delete
    4. Several things, to be honest. First, having a male protagonist for a porn game. I don't project myself onto the characters I play as in a game and in porn games I'm more interested in seeing how all the erotic things that happen affect a female player character (whether they get corrupted or are already slutty, I'd rather see that than anything the male player character says or does).

      Second, the voice only sex scenes. I've never liked hearing dirty talk as it always sounds so cheesy to me and makes me want to cringe. I prefer to either read it, there be no dialogue (in video porn), or for it to be in a language I can't understand.

      Third, the varying artstyles. It's rather distracting to look at porn done in multiple styles and makes it harder for me to enjoy in an erotic way. It's much easier for me to be turned on by looking at a bunch of unrelated things in one artist's style than a bunch of images by various artists about the same character or story.

      And finally, and this is biggest thing,the actual gameplay and story. They're just not very fun or engaging. There are games like Renryuu Acension and Monster Girl Quest Paradox where they gameplay and/or story is enjoyable enough that I'd play them on that aspect alone, but with the LOQO series, I feel like I'm trudging through things I don't care about between sex scenes that are spaced too far apart to be worth it. There are games like Noxian Nights where despite not being too interesting in terms of gameplay, the porn is close enough together that it never feels like the next scene isn't worth the hassle to get to. In LOQO, porn feel like the only thing it really has to offer and it never feels worth the task needed to reach it. It's for this very reason I've never been able to get more than a few hours into one of these games before it just doesn't feel worth it.

      Delete
    5. Why, there's an honest review here, without any trolling or aggression. These are the most valuable ones.

      Delete
    6. Well, I can understand your mindset on most of that when it came to the past 2 Games. As far as this new game goes, I think there are parts of it you will enjoy more. I'll try to keep it spoiler free unless you consider me telling this to you at all a spoiler then feel free to ignore me.
      First off there are no voice only scenes. And the amount of scenes are much larger than the last few. Like episode one of this game felt like it had more scenes than the entire last game. So you do not have to do a lot to find the next scene. Plus, you can shape the scenes a little more to your liking, and you can miss scenes because of how choices you make. So this may encourage multiple play throughs if you end up enjoying it. And while you do play as a male, you do get to affect the girls in the game. As far as the differing art styles, if you decide to do the western style then both the scenes and trading cards will share the same style. Other wise choose whichever style you like.

      I can't really help you if you don't like the story. And the gameplay can't be improved too much since they all run on the same engine. But there are new things in the game you may find enjoyable. I hope this game is more enjoyable for you than the previous ones.

      Delete
    7. I'm actually not a huge fan of having too may choices in a game, unless there's a guide so I know what to do to minimize the number of playthroughs. Also, by "gameplay" I mean things like enjoyable minigames and side quests, quirky humor, collectibles, upgrading locations like a base or city, collecting characters and watching them slowy fill up your base, making more mundane aspects like menus interesting to look at, etc. I know most of this stuff is possible in RPG Maker, as I've seen it done before.

      My main problem with the story was that it wasn't too interesting and it felt like a means to an end (that end being porn). It just didn't feel like it had much substance.

      Nothing against the game and it's fans, it just seems to go against a lot of my personal preferences.

      Delete
    8. OH I'm glad you said that. I thought you meant gameplay as in hating the turn based combat. But if the gameplay you want is what you described I think you'll like this game. Of course it is all subjective, I can't say that a side quest will be funny to you without knowing your sense of humor. But anyway, I feel more confidant that you may enjoy this game.

      Delete
    9. @ Dj Quinn, thumb up for honesty and for being constructive.

      Just a few short remarks:

      It's interesting how tastes differ, I actually remember enjoying variety of artstyles a lot. Diversity was a fresh approach to me and quite to my liking. It remains so still, I think. And unlike few other NSFW games with diverse artstyles that I encountered - in LoQO art was original, not just random stuff grabbed from internet.

      I get what you mean about engaging gameplay, as I played MGQP from your examples and yeah... But hey, LoQO is not too lacking in gameplay either. LoQO:O has CUSTOM soundtrack, lots of pleasant and trackable collecting, inbuild encyclopedia to help you track everything, nicely made (IMO) world... Skills, battle growth and story-depth and impact of side-quests could've been stronger, yes, that I have to admit. But all in all it's not bad. And it grows and improves. LoQO 2 was more pleasant to play than LoQO. And LoQO:O is more pleasant to play than LoQO 2.

    10. Neferis quote
      ____________
      Each subsequent episode includes all previous ones. So, basically Episode II is content from Episode I + content from Episode II.
      ____________

      Wait a sec., I didn't know that as I only played the 1st game for now, it gets confusing

      so far I have

      1)Legend of Queen Opala - Golden Edition.rar 129 mb
      2)LoQOIIGolden.rar 639 mb (I guess it's The Legend of Queen Opala II - Golden Edition)
      3)LoQO-Origin.rar 435 mb (Legend of Queen Opala - Origin, I guess it's a prequel)

      does it mean that I've to discard Legend of Queen Opala - Golden Edition.rar as it is contained in LoQOIIGolden.rar?

      I guess LoQO-Origin.rar can't contain any of the previous games

      _____________
      as for the games themselves, I would have liked more if they were ACTION RPGs (always pixel-art), with an AI contolled party as in Seiken Densetsu 3 <3, but I like a lot Gabe's chara design of the royalty, it surprisingly hits most of my fetishes with one strike

      Delete
    11. Whoa whoa whoa maya, let's clarify something. Loqo and Loqo II are two SEPARATE games. Loqo II is the sequel to Loqo. Don't delete one of them or else you'll lose it. The Golden Editions are the completed versions of each game along with some bonus content.

      Loqo Origin is the third game and actually takes place after Loqo II. It's not a prequel in that sense.

      Delete
    12. Lol, files are safe and will be burned (but not Origin), thank you for the heads up, I don't know what Neferis meant but nevermind.
      I know what Golden means but it's good you pointed it out for who doesn't know.

      And IIRC, Loqo Origin Episode I (LoQO-Origin.rar) is going to be Golden after this last one gets polished/fixed?

      Delete
    13. No, the games only become Golden after all the episodes of the game are completed. Loqo Origins is going to have 4 episodes. So once Episode 4 is released, that will be the Main Loqo Orgins game. And then after some time, Gabe will release a golden editions which polishes it up more and contains some bonus stuff. Think of episodes 1-4 as standard edition and golden as deluxe edition.

      What Neferis said was correct. Everything in episode 1 is included in episode 2. And everything from episode 1 and 2 is included in episode 3, and so on. When we talk about episodes, we are talking about parts of the same game. Think of it like this, Gabe isn't releasing episodes of a game, she's re releasing the same game with much more content added to it. It's all one big beta until the game is completed. She may release version 1. Then she will do more work and release version 2. But why would version 2 not contain the content of version 1? It's the same thing, but just updated.

    15. this was some complex "lore" but now I get it, whew

      well I'll stick with just golden editions and discard LoQO-Origin.rar as it is inside this new episode II, but I'll wait for the merged golden version anyway, at worst I may lose the different opening screen that each Origin episode may have when they're split and that gets lost if the 4 episodes get merged into one big game

      ___________
      Loqo and Loqo II are two SEPARATE games. Loqo II is the sequel to Loqo
      ___________

      yea, MAYBE I tried the sequel for a few hours more than a year ago:I remember selectable chars (some kind of farmer), SPOILER
      at beginning he joins an old wizard that dies soon after and in the maze cave the player meets Opala...SPOILER

      Delete
    16. ....so are you saying that you're not gonna play the episode 2 and wait for the golden edition edition of Loqo Origins? Cause that will be a few years.

      Delete
    17. yea it could take like 3 years but I'm that patient as I'm very hooked to retrogaming right now (well almost always)

      I've to replay n°1 anyway as I got only to what smells like a temporary ending (no spoilers please) that triggered the legendary monsters and I lost to one hidden in the royal palace cave, missing mines and haunted castle to explore, buy ship, alt. campaigns to try the branching plots (prolly they'll lead to a Game Over but whatever, lol)...not to mention the other episode that seems way bigger in every regard

  7. Question for you Gabe: Can we participate in the MyGeek tournament right now? I have all 66 trading cards in this episode, but the proprietor just gives me two opponents to play against and I don't qualify to challenge either one.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you've already got the Beatrix card, then you can't participate in the tournament any more right now. There are no more cards with Naz'Raala or Sunny-Sue available in the game, and you need to have at least 8 cards of each deck to play.

      Delete
    2. Thank you. I checked some sources and my different files and saw that Beatrix No.10 used to be available through prediction, but was moved to MyGeek, very interesting. I was wondering why there were only two options, but seemed to be three champions. Looking forward to more MyGeek!

  11. so.. the Crystal by the Inn crystal, when is that one coming out? or is it out already and im just kinda blind? cuz i have full upgrade castle to the point where my staff formed a circle and want to modify everything but i can't cuz its missing "tools" i have all 33 deeds.

    1. No access yet. In the encyclopedia, via statistics, you can see your progress based on what is unlockable in the current episode. Max save crystals is 8, which does not include the currently inactive one you mention.

    2. by the way, i have 33 deeds im missing one, really can't seen to find it

      Delete
    3. I've been investigating myself. Some theorize it's the Heavenly Fate, but no one's figured out how to get in to check. If you do new game plus, you can purchase properties before you lose access to Heavenly Fate. Since 34 are listed in the stats, it implies we can access to the 34th, but it could be an oversight on Gabe's point or there's a property we're all ignoring.

      Delete
    4. Ah, yes, you're perfectly right, Heavenly Fate is indeed one of the 34 locations...whoops. >_>

      Delete
    5. So, in a next update, openning up heavenly would be a good thing, otherwise, doing NG+ to buy that before u have the castle, seens a bit weird doesn't it? i mean, nothing that a quick modification can't fix, unless Heavenly Fate has some plot involved with its closed doors.

      Delete
    6. anyways, tried to buy deed on NG+ and nothing, don't know if u can only do it after u become a fugitive..

      Delete
    7. yeah, no heavenly fate in the count, so i could say that is only 33 deeds available at the moment

    3. Wait, how do you do a new game plus without going from the betas? Do people who play to the end of the first episode get an orb of restoration? I've only ever played the betas so I've always had it since before the first episode so I don't know for people who don't.

    1. You just need to move your saves from Episode I folder into the folder with Episode II and launch the game.

    2. don't forget it can't be on certain maps, or an error is given, i could load if i was on the map or in my castle, if i was on caves an error shows

    3. Should mostly just be caves that will screw you up. I tried to just set up camp, though, as you're never far from being able to set up camp. Also, copy your saves instead of moving them, that way you automatically have a backup.

  22. If possible could you program a 'skip' function for the disclaimers. every time i open any of your games, i have to wait a bit to enjoy the fun bits :P. What i mean is after first start up, disclaimer is turned off. or a skip feature is enabled. that way we don't have to constantly be told the game is 'adults only'. love your games otherwise.. just a bit of a pet peeve :P

    1. I expect that's a legal thing his games have to have as just the same as all adult content has some form of disclaimer. It's annoying yes but I don't think a skip option is likely or wise. Though editing it to be more fun or eye pleasing is possibly an option. I personally liked the disclaimer in Babysitting Cream by avalonX. Although it forced you to read it the first time any other time you could just click on the correct spot to skip past it and it was perfectly legal because of that feature but BSC was a flash game not RPGmaker so it may not be an option here.

  24. !!!!!!!!!!!!!SPOILER WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Holy hell, that ending for Episode 2...
    I really didnt expect a freaking hentai game to make me nearly cry over a loyal companion... When I heard the voice calling out for Devon, I nearly freaked.
    But I am not sure how I feel about Kythe becoming a humanoid female... I mean, cmone, we all know what happens to any female companion at one poit or the other, and after having Kythe as your bro all the time, I am really unconfortable imagining Devon fucking him in Episode 3...
    I know he has a female body now, but lets be honest here, its still Kythe...

    1. Remember that she only remembers her connection to Devon. We may see an almost completely different companion, depending on the extent to which she was changed. I did find it a bit convenient, though, that Gabe took away our one male companion.

      When it happened, I quickly went to denial. I didn't want to lose my boy and then I was bargaining thinking: Gabe can't take away my Power/Destroy combo! How will I farm?

      Delete
    2. He took away the looks of him and made it into her but the skills might remain you will never now until you will play as her in episode 3

      Delete
    3. Personally, I think it was a missed chance to make Kythe a humanoid dude, that way he can join you and double team the other women.

      Or if the gay option is there, have Devon and Kythe really "bond".

      Delete
    4. Dunno that was an interesting twist but we don't know much at this point so maybe Kythie is a hermaphrodite, we'll see. What really bothers me is how did Farah get away from Zweibelle when PC was captured. Considering that she works for Crayden she must have known who she is so why would she just let her go instead of returning her to Crayden or just using her as another test subject.

      Delete
    5. Well, for all Zweibelle knew, Farah was already captured when she got Devon...

      Delete
    6. 100% agree, i really didn't like what happened to him. It just felt like a lazy way to add "another" female for you to have sex with. And it just throws their heart warming back story in the trash. I think Cian's idea would be the best, he is still your bro and have the same personality. He could still join you when you have sex with girls and if you wanted there would be a gay romance as well. But if that is not an option then at least make it so that you could avoid it, like that you send him away before you go to the spire on a important mission that you can prioritize or not. Or have the ability to save him from falling in or anything really. Turning him into some kind of mana hound would be cool as well.

      Delete
    7. I actually liked the twist ending, well, after I got over maybe losing my favourite damage dealer. At least this explains why, way back in Episode 1, Kythe had change costume options when he didn't even wear clothes. I never could make sense of that; thought it was a glitch to be honest.

      Delete
    8. like the little big boobs loli said(or was it her sister?whatever), she said that since Kythe race was the same as hers or whatever they blabered about, Kythe actually died, that is one of his reincarnations that retrieved his soul, so only his basic feelings of trust and complete devotion remained, so from a perspective, that is not kythe at all..

      It kinda makes sense if u think about it, anyways, Kythe gave everything lore like that he had, time for him to give a little of his womanly deep lore, if u know what i mean..

      Anyways, nice twist.

      Delete
  25. But only older Farah was in the lab where the masked mercenary rescued you and then you meet the younger one at Castle Warrengard and there was no mention how she got there from the dragon cave where you were captured.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, my prediction for that is that when you were captured, Zweibelle thought Farah was already captured (since she was, just the wrong one) and didnt bother with your companion, because she had no use for her. But other than that, yeah thats a plothole.

      Delete
    2. Hey guys. That's end of episode stuff there. Please keep the spoilers to a minimum or at lease label them with big letters as spoilers like the post above did so people who have not progressed so far are warned not to read your post unless they don't care about that.

  28. I should say that BeastmodeB is damn lustful! Hust cannot get enough of those juicy illustrations to the scenes!

    But there are some questions I've got while trying to walkthrough from the beginning (SOME LITTLE SPOILERS AHEAD!). If I recall it right, in BeastmodeA there was a scene with Gabrielle during the first Windy Canyon pass and another one - in the Hihghland Inn. In BeastmodeB, there is no scene on Windy Canyon, and so Highland scenes are cut in quantity very much.
    So:
    1. Does each playmode has different playthrough with different order of events?
    2. Does dialog selection has affection on the game playthrough (for example, if MC states that he doesn't mind sharing girls, then there is no Gabrielle on Windy Canyon pass and only threesome option in the Inn, but if not, then there will be more options with Gabrielle)?
    3. How many times can I replay the game using Orb of Restoration, and can I play the same playmode twice?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1. The version you play only affects the displayed/unlocked illustrations during CG scenes, otherwise they all play out identically. (With minor differences if you are human or not)
      2. Yes, it's even possible to go through Highland Inn without any scene triggering at all.
      3. Origin is specifically made to be played an infinite amount of time, compared to past LoQO titles, so you can play each version as many times as you'd like! :3

  30. Two silly questions Gabe: first is the Episode 2 release supposed to be v2.01? for some reason I was expecting 2.00, like episode 1 was 1.00.

    Second, is there supposed to not be a 'current version' text file with all the updates and tweaks in the episode two release? because I didn't see one in the download. Maybe I missed it?

    Anyway, thanks for indulging my curiosity and keep up the great work!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually I was wondering the same thing about the current version text file. At the verry least I was wondering if we can actually finish rebuilding castle warengard or if we can't get enough resources for that yet.

      Delete
    2. 2.00 came with a "Current Version" file, but since 2.01 only fixed like three smaller bugs and I didn't want the whole list across episode II to be available to the public, it wasn't included.

      Delete
    3. Okay, makes sense. At least I'm not crazy.

      Delete
  31. Castle Warrengard can only be partially repaired, the exterior can be spruced up with a moat with a bridge, trees and a cobblestone road. Interior-wise most of the rubble is removed and you'll have access to the second floor, the aquaduct, the main bedroom and the market, however it will still be in a state of disrepair.

    I'm just hoping Gabe throws us a bone in an upcoming beta and makes the Heavenly Fate available for purchase and it gives 500 food & beverage so we can get those improved.

    Failing that I'd like a bit more clarification on the new recruit, namely do they have a red rocket, a pink socket or both?

    1. Different art styles. That's it. If you play as human you get an eastern and a western version. Gabe wanted to do the same for beastman. In the future there will be an international edition that covers both human and beastman modes in the same artsyle as the emoticons

    1. each new episode has all last episodes in it, so if u get episode 2, it means episode 1 is in it, if im not mistaken, episode 1 ended with the bridge or something like that, and the episode 2 with the tower, thats all i can say without spoilers.

  38. There is a bunch of question I have after few hours of play. Gabe, if u'll have some little spare time to read this, please answer. )
    (CAN BE SOME SPOILER AHEAD)

    1. I was wondering for quite a while: either Dimensional Shards always located in still places, or they are in random ones after each replay/newgame?
    2. Sometimes, after a certain thunder, a zombie-like figure appears near the entrance to the laboratory cave. It seems I cannot interact with it. it's an easter egg, or there will be some script set to this figure, hmm?
    3. There is Ruby Coin chest underwater in one of Arlon's caves. A teaser? Or maybe I can reach it somehow? )
    4. And the question that intrigues me the most: should we expect more of those mysterious and amusing locarions like that Immemorial Glade one? +__+

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 3. Figured out how to reach there. Very amusing indeed. ~__^

      Delete
    2. 1. Dimensional shards are fixed but once you have them you keep them even if you start NG+ so you don't have to go back and get them again but can get any relavent scenes they unlock the moment you go see the quest givver.

      2. Those zombies are story related for near the end of chapter 2. They are irrelevant otherwise and cannot be caught talked to or faught.

      3.You can get it through the immemorial glade south of town(avoiding spoilers)

      4. Most likely. After all Gabe has a terrific sense of humor and seems to have a talent for working fun gimmicks like that into her games. I don't know for certain but I expect it's likely. You will probably find the immemorial glade has some other uses later and may even have so major story relevance to later(or possibly previous) events but that's just me speculating.

      Delete
    3. *(SPOILER's)there are plenty of questions, that u don't know if are real ones, or just stuff he actually forgot about, one for example is the girl that says that if u want to molest her since start of episode 1 still says that at this moment(the house on the west side of colussia or is it east?)..

      And the house that u find older farah in STILL says that opala is having fun inside with sebastian(BUT SHE IS MISSING GOD DANG IT, AND u know it, does she have a clone??)

      And why is the house that the Prince was murdered(by my favorite villain in game) in not actually a property that u can buy and actually have as a 3th base?? i mean, Heavenly Fate is considered one of the 34 deeds, but u can't even get inside to buy it, so why not put a deed deal on something u can actually go in..

      anyways, all questions that can be answered by only one person.

    3. AFAIK it's in Heavenly Fate, which becomes inaccessible for most of the story and up to now, and I don't think you can buy deeds before acquiring Warrengard, so, there's no way of getting it for now.

      Delete
    4. Maybe Gabe intended to make it possible to go in after getting Warrengard and forgot to move the guy in front? It seems weird that the game says you should be able to get 34 deeds in this version but the last one is blocked.

      Delete
    5. Well, don't ask me.
      It doesn't matter anyways, because there is no way to procure enough materials so far to build anything else in Warrengard, so it's not life the ones acquired by the Heavenly Fate deed would tip the scales.
      Oh, also, as someone who datamined the game I can tell you that the interior design for fully upgraded Warrengard is finished.
      No spoilers though other than there's a lot of blue.

  41. *WARNING: Spoilers*

    Just a little bug I found, but when you go back to Brightstone after Opala's missing and you try to enter the guest cottage, it says that 'Opala and Sebastilion must be getting very close' or something like that and it won't let you enter, even though Opala is no longer there. x3 Just thought I'd let you know. Other than that it's a great game, I'm looking forward to wooing Kythie (and maybe Ra'Tiki and Mhu'Tiki as well) in the next chapter!

  42. Hmm I was wondering.
    What can I expect for getting points in Affection for literally all Females in the Game.

    Something like Special Scenes at the End of the Game or requiring a Special Skill for maxing it?

    If yes, why have the supposedly female antagonists one as well...
    It does make me curious xD

    1. Well, we were supposed to get some kind of romance system that would be better than the reward for affection in LoQO2, that basically came down to receiving trading card-like illustrations of other dudes and monsters fucking your party members.
      Seeing how we're halfway through the game and there's no way of giving gifts to party members yet I wonder how it'll be implemented... maybe when the characters will have become somewhat stationary inside Warrengard?

    1. So I'm having trouble finding the golden beetleblades. I know where they're supposed to be and I have done some serious grinding to try and get them. I found one but it ran away before I could even attack it. Now I'm afraid there might be some kind of bug or something and I can't find them anymore. I have the Ring of Resonance and I literally spent two hours trying to get one but it never showed up. Any tips?

      Delete
    2. You'd better wrote this message in the newest post so that Gabe could notice it.

      1) To avoid Golden Beetleblades leaving a fight you should attack them in the first place.

      2) Golden Beetleblades exist in unlimited numbers. You can find maps on loqo.wikispaces.com which show locations where Golden Beetleblades can appear.

      3) The chance of Golden Beetleblades' appearance is quite low. To raise it up to approximately 25% you need to buy Monster Lure reward in the in-game encyclopedia.

      4) A Golden Beetleblade spawns once you enter a location from the map travel. Checking its position on loqo.wikispaces.com and then looking for it there in the game is the best tactics for finding a Golden Beetleblade. If the Golden Beetleblade hasn't spawned then you simply have to reenter the location (first to the map travel screen and after that back to the location). Golden Detector reward is quite useful as it gives you a message every time a Golden Beetleblade appears in the location.
