How intrusive are the Free to play mechanics?

I filled up my SP leaving the system in sleep mode and the one point I used didn't really make a huge difference. And you can ONLY buy SP and they're 99 cents per bottle of 3 points. The social aspects matter more if anything, but you can just add a bunch of people here and call it a day.

SPEAKING OF WHICH: my friend code's 4940-5860-8657. PM me if you add me!

One of the things they hated was the abrupt story ending going by the posts I saw on Neogaf.

So yeah, even if you were going to let story carry it for you you should forget about it.

This is useful for segregating MP talk from SP talk actually, otherwise I'd have possibly closed. Although the topic probably does need to be changed for MP stuff.

The last thing I remember is a surfing game for iOS. That probably isn't very reassuring.

Huh? There's a very clear statement that it's canceled in the original Eurogamer story and at best "not at this time" means that they may revisit it in the future. I'd bring up just hacking the game, but I actually wonder if the anti piracy methods make that impractical even when fully authorized? Though I guess "because Neverland closed" can be considered a rumor, but that seems to only be treated as speculation thus far, and probable speculation honestly.

At any rate crappy news for Europeans. :/

Doesn't help that Tina was blonde in the JP version.

You mean the Amano artwork. She was always green haired otherwise, heck they had chibi art of her right on the back of the Japanese box with green hair.

I'm pretty sure that type of artwork is made to represent her visual design in the game itself. Her official design has always had blonde hair (outside of a piece from Final Fantasy VI Advance where you can see her with brown hair).

It must be the similar case of why Link's hair is pink in A Link to the Past for Terra/Tina's hair to be green in Final Fantasy VI.

I mainly pointed out because with him saying the "JP version" that made it sound as if he thought it was a change in localization when it clearly wasn't, and if anything you'd have characters being changed from exotic colors (or all black) to BLONDE as Raw Danger readily showed.

Even with the excuse of being "JP version" in that it's the game's artwork, well, a lot of that actually WAS shown here, printed in Nintendo Power, printed in the strategy guide... knowing the Terra was blonde in the artwork absolutely some weird thing only the Japanese saw, but anyone that followed Nintendo or wanted the strategy guide. I do think that they may have corrected the colors on Locke's clothes though as I swear that matched with his in-game stuff in NP/the strategy guide, but I may be misremembering.

Yeah but then you get the rest of his catalogue...  I like Nomura's early stuff a lot, and I think he started off as a great artist for the company.  I also think the guy is kind of out of practice these days since he's focusing on other parts of the company (the way he draws muscles is particularly funny/weird...and fucking hell, why is his Dissidia version of Terra starving to death?  You can't be hot unless your ribs are protruding out of your chest? :S ).

Obviously starving both of them to get them in a suitably bad, sour mood for the game. Cloud was far more legitimately emo in Dissidia than he was in most of FFVII, and he just had a full on breakdown when there was cause for it, and I recall Terra being pretty meek throughout and I don't recall her being that bad in VI (though that was always a much longer time ago, and not played when I'd be attentive to that like replaying FFVII after seemingly the whole internet pegged him as an emo.)

Backed the moment I saw it. Vita stretch goal. Give me buttons or give me death.

Eh, at least there's a PC version by default. After Republique no way would I trust backing an iOS game with the intent of getting the iOS version.

^You saw that on GAF? I saw the same image in the import thread over there. Pretty much the main reason people post stuff like that is to keep finding reasons to shit on the games (which is adorable at this point if you ask me). That said, I'm gonna search for that dog once I get my copy.

Given that one of the bigger FF fans was taking issue with a general lack of polish that dog is clearly symptomatic of a larger problem than just being what an intern made while drunk.

Especially since it seems to be the one case where you can literally say that, yes, a Playstation 1 game really did have better graphics.

Well, it sounds like the LCD compares very favorably to the OLED so that helps, which I kind of expected since LCDs are kind of a big deal for Sony unlike Nintendo where it's more about making a reasonably good quality but affordable piece of hardware. So it won't be too big of a deal if you wait for that Vita-2000 rather than going for the OLED, but the deals do seem good enough and who REALLY knows when we'll even see that outside of Japan with how the Vita's doing anyway.

Thoren sounds reasonably authentic to me!

I'm not saying 'never', that's your putting words in my mouth. It just so happened with Ys this time. I can't speak for how it was scheduled, but I'm guessing interest in 2013 lists tends to wane the more you get into 2014, not an intention to 'ignore Ys' or anything that came out so late. November was busy for new releases, and not just RPGs, so some of us got distracted with those.

I just know I voted for Ys. Except in the GotY category. :)

That's my thought too, the internet's been in general more and more demanding of immediate information, many sites have their GotY stuff done before the year's even over (and it SEEMS to me there's been more and more creep in that regard, I don't recall GameSpot having their GotY out this far in advance in the past.) Ideally there'd be a wait until the year's over THEN decide, especially in case anyone was waiting on Christmas for games, but I suspect there's a high risk of just coming too late or looking irrelevant otherwise.

Anyways it's not an RPG but Bioshock Infinite was easily my disappointment of the year. As far as RPG go though... I dunno if I could pick one, I think I had reasonable expectations for them all: Ni no Kuni being all Level 5 design-wise meant that it was likely to be pretty but kind of boring, and others I didn't go in with extreme expectations. I guess the closest thing would be Trails in the Sky PC slipping into this year, but that's more disappointing NEWS, and something like Bravely Default would probably be a better case being a more arbitrary wait.

There's Divinity: Original Sin coming out in February too, but that may be too demanding without a console version in sight as the case was for Divinity II. That one'll be turn based as they had been wanting to do for a long time.

Only spend the $9.99 either if you want to see if you'll seriously use it or to get some games you want until a more opportune time for a subscription. No reason to actually STAY with a $9.99 monthly plan whatsoever.

For the love of god guys I tried... I read, reviewed and watched everything I could... I filled my brain with enough FFXIII info to write an incoherent sci-fi novel with religious overtones.

This is an effort best saved for Paradox games honestly. For the FFXIII games just look up game recaps and whatever information is directly relevant to your interests, because it's generally better to just go with the flow and not try to take the games that seriously. This could go for a LOT of works really, but for total story information that's better spent on something like Mass Effect, and for gameplay immersion borderline necessary for Paradox strategy games.
