@DaathgamesX Don't do the achievements you don't want to do then? No one here needs or cares about your respect.

Pretty much what ChronoGear said @DaathgamesX , people earn achievements they find fun, or have a completionist attitude. If you don't like it, don't do it. That's it. Your respect is worth about as much as a "play on RAlibretro" chievo : 0

Mastered! ...but sadly, no respect

Well shoot, now the mastery is that much more worthwhile. The lack of respect is tempting

Estragaram o set...

I finally finished and what I can say is this: if it was to have a review, it could assimilate the level restrictions as in the aria hack, because restrictions of weapons and spells, it is not as fun as it seems.

Nem adianta reclamar e pedir pra por em bnus set, os caras fecham os olhos pras cagadas e afundaram o set do jogo.

It was tough but remastered it, you guys should really rethink how difficult a main set needs to be.

To many of you complaining, mastering a game and finishing a game are 2 very different things, a level cap Aria is barely something worth mentioning, further limitations are a must, maybe not this much but still.

@affftedio They just forget that they are on Retro Achievements and the main goal here is to test your skills, might and sanity...

It's just people complaining because they aren't good enough. It just makes having the 200% that much more satisfying.

quando isso comecou, tinha soh o mega drive, tinham poucos jogos, vi isso crescer e, junto com o site, o ego de muitos developers que se acham deuses, fazendo conquistas idiotas e impossiveis soh pra ficarem se vangloriando nos comentarios...

antes de mais nada, isso aqui era pra ser divertido, uma nova forma de jogar os jogos velhos, nao esse monte de desafio sem sentido, sem graca e repetitivo...

Ola mocada! Gostaria de dizer que essa animosidade nao eh bem recebida por aqui. Cada um ja botou pra fora o que estava preso nesse coracaozinho amargurado e agora bola pra frente.

Dang. Sounds like this game and SMRPG are going to be places of contention for quite a while. Gl admins and achievement revisionists of other games. This gonna happen there too probably.
20 May 2021

Honestly, a lot of people who do revisions are used to this kinda thing.

Mastered! Eu estava enganado ao achar que esse set era injusto ou algo do tipo, ele e bem elaborado, na verdade ele so assusta mesmo a quem ler as chevos e nem tenta completa-los hehehe.
