Single-Player RPGs / Re: FF12 HD - Zodiac Age

^I just finished bur-omiscae, so I'm a little farther. I have a tiebreaker/shikari Fran but I've been using hammers and she wrecks. I agree about the uhlan/Archer being awesome, I got an elfin bow for my baasch from a hunt and he was hitting twice as hard as anybody else for a good while. I'm definitely trying a bushi/black mage in my next play through they sound like a blast!

@Starmongoose good to hear that they're not too challenging, I might give a few a go especially the flan. I know there was a snake in the zertinan caverns though, and I remember from playing the vanilla FFXII thats more endgame.

How the hell is Basch the wimp of the group?

If I had to take a wild guess, it might be due to spending time in Jail Gaol

Was just thinking this. And I mean Fran is just a magical bunny rabbit in heels it kinda makes sense she's not good at fighting right?

As an aside, how is everybody handling hunts? I was trying to keep up with them but I just unlocked a bunch of rank V marks and feel like they might be too strong.

*casually slips money into pocket*
I say you've taken all my time in money in a good way, I swear. I love rpgs and just hearing people gush over the same games I like is just priceless.

Kingdom hearts is definitely one of my favorite series, so glad they released it on ps4. Between that and FFXII I'm pretty much reliving my childhood. I totally agree with you Nick, the zodiac age is fantastic, I loved it when I was a kid and the remake is just as good as I remember it being.

Hey mods! I recently found your site online and I've started listening to both the random encounters and retro encounters podcasts as well as reading your reviews and I just felt the need to say that you all rock! The podcasts are fantastic, I've been thoroughly enjoying listening to them, and your reviews are great. I feel like you are true rpg fans reviewing games you love honestly, and I can really get behind what you're saying more than most game sites. Infact you might be too grrat at what youre doing, cause ive added 10 ganes to my backlog in the last week and despite being knee deep in the kingdom hearts collection, ffxii and dq8, i booted up bloodborne again after listening to rob talk about it and am itching to play xenoblade chronicles after the podcasts on it - goddamnit there isnt enough time for all these games! Seriously though thanks for being so awesome, and keep up the fantastic work!

Better visuals (in an already gorgeous game with unparalleled visual design).
Re-orchestrated soundtrack.
Job Classes, with complex, intricate, and varied character builds to play with.
No spell queue.
No damage limit.
Proper limit breaks not tied to MP.

This game is like... one of the best Final Fantasy games I have EVER played.  In my 21 year history with the series.

As I'm playing, each new area is like a little gift: new visuals, new music, both beautifully realized, with new monsters and new loot to go after.  New Bestiary entries to unlock and complete.  And exploring off the beaten path adds an element of risk that can be thrilling as well.
Not only that, but plot and character-wise it's MUCH better than I remember, even when compared to modern games.  There's still a lot of names and locations to try and keep track of, but it all feels way less baroque than it did 11 years ago
Completely agree this game is awesome. It was the first jrpg I played and I beat all of the optional stuff minus tiamat when I was like 11 without much trouble, which makes me think that the loot system isn't as complicated as everyone makes it up to be. Reading through everybodys complaints of the games is really disheartening and honestly I just don't get it. Like even the complaints about vaan - he's not even that annoying, and he has a lot of character development even over the course of the first 10 hours, and he feels REAL. The whole "he has no motivation to be with the party" argument is BS - he's a kid who's ENTIRE FAMILY was killdby theArchadian Empire, is it really a wonder he's fighting with Ashe, the princess of his homeland and leader of the rebellion against the empire?
