So according to this rumour:


The International content for FFX and X-2 will only be available as DLC at $5 a pop.

I certainly hope this isn't true.

FFX International isn't that great anyway. It puts a load of near-impossible bosses (the Dark Aeons), which block you out of certain areas and side-content unless you defeat them first. And they're not even fun bosses either, they're the type where you're supposed to grind your stats to maximum just to stand a chance. It was annoying playing the PAL version missing out on sidequests because there were incredibly overpowered bosses in the way. I would pay $5 not to have the PAL/International version extras.

Ah, good ole' Squeenix. Rebalancing the Sphere Grid to make it less linear to progress through then supplement it with Trademark Squeenix Superbosses locking you out of things that was originally free(-ish *cough*Chocobo Racing/Dodging 200 Lightning Bolts*cough*) to partake in (and not even well designed Superbosses but the "Hope you've maxed out, found the system exploit, and are willing to chew through 50 Million HPs, otherwise FUCK OFF!" Superbosses).

I tier-whored in Gen 1 so it was bulbasaur for me. Been avoiding fire for a few gens because they were all fire-fighting, rumors are that the new one will be fire-psychic though. But yeah, Fennekin looks like it has the biggest potential to look cool so thats for me.

To be fair though, it was really hard to not tier-whore gen 1(sans Yellow) due to the utter lack of anything that can deal with Rock & Water early on (the Electric resistance is cute too but doesn't matter against Guile Lt. Surge due to Sonic Boom spam). Once you hit Diglett Cave though and caught yourself a lucky level 29 Dugtrio you were set for the rest of the game (by the time Dugtrio stops being enough is when you should already have and finished raising Larpas/Snorlax/Gyarados/or something similarly asskicking). Additionally dealing with the first Mt. Moon and Rock Cave is really annoying without something that can oneshot Geodudes.

And today's Maribelle's birthday! Discuss about her.

She's a bitch to rescue on Lunatic or higher.

You can pair her up with Donnel to make a Brady with a Luck cap over 50.

She has a very Staff oriented class set.

Once you can buy Restore/Ward/Rescue/Physic staffs she won't have too much trouble gaining Exp for her since Pegasus Knight and Dark Flier are the only classes she has that cannot use Staffs and the higher end Staffs give a ton of Exp per use.

She likes Lissa a lot.

If Froakie ends up being Water/Fighting you're all obligated to call it Battletoad

Much better than Revolver Oshuwatt which only lasts as a joke until you evolve it into a Dewott which you then have to proceed to rename it to Mountain until the final evolution where you name it Seven or Nobunaga.

Also, you don't have to call it a Battletoad if you want to call it Zitt, Pimple, or Rash instead.

I know I beat that level but never beat the game.

Other hard ass NES games I never beat:
Zelda I,II
The Guardian Legend
Punch Out!

What!? You go right back there mister and you finish them. Have I made myself clear?

Seriously, I first played and beat TGL not more than two years ago and beat it in short order. There's no reason why you can't beat it.

I'm real blue Canada is everything BUT mentioned for the CE.  That's like....almost RACISTSheesh (or Nation-ist? Countrist??)  I'm hoping we hear something by Monday.  If not, get ready for me to bug fellow Fanners to be paid for their American-priveldge. D:

Maybe even Commune-ist. :v

Or perhaps this is the price for having retailers breaking street dates like it ain't no thang.

I've heard the analogy that water= tank, fire= sweeper, grass= special ops. 

I echo the sentiment someone else said that hopefully fennekin won't be a fire/fighting type again, since chimchar and tepig were both fire/fighting. 

I'll definitely be choosing Froakie. 

Also torchick.

Some places have broken street date. I hate them all. :(

Monday night for me, GameStop has midnight release.

I propose that we send in a strike force to the Canadian capital to demand their video game retailers to stop breaking release dates.

Courtesy of the Xseed forums:

Wasn't it Dice who originally posted that there to begin with?

First collector Edition I will buy
Why did you color Terra black for an avatar? I sad face at this....Terra is so awesome

Mourning the General. :(

I figured it was to reflect Terra's Dissida personality.

I was expecting them to move straight into the season 2, but I was hoping for the bonds DLC first. Oh well three weeks till bonds I suppose then.

As an aside, I disliked the Spring of Truth paralogue. I first tried it with my normal team and then the NPC attacked the gods twice in one turn and died before I realized she was that stupid. Next time through just used spotpass characters that I haven't touched for half my team so that the mirrors were wimps.

I just bum rushed Team Ditto and made sure that the guest character got a chance to take a swing at her queen doppeloplepolis by cornering her off while keeping the real deal healed.

Yeah. Still can't believe that we're getting this. More bothersome though is the fact that between all the SMT games, Xillia actually tempting me to pick up a Tales game since Phantasia, FE:Awakening's DLC needing even more of my money, anything else coming down the line, and this is unfortunately tempting me to give this a pass.

You still have some people swearing it was shit if ScrewAttack's any indication.

I was mainly disappointed at the time it wasn't traditional Mega Man but in 3D, instead it was sort of a Mega Man-esque 3D Metroid, which I liked for it was more and more as time went on.

Sorta what happened to me as well. I ended up getting it shortly after it came out (along with FFT), initially was disappointed it wasn't MMX5 (although X4 wasn't lighting my Fire Man due to the clunkiness of the PSX engine and the noticeable sequel slide, but I digress), then I started to realize that it was the closest thing we were getting to a 3D Metroid conversion (until Prime came out). Then MML2 came out and won me over almost completely with the variety MML1 sorely lacked.

Meanwhile, we're jumping right in to the second season of DLC which, by my estimation, I figure that there's going to be about 6-7 weeks left of content (with 2 weeks before the post game stages and DLC characters are done, and 13 weeks for the DLC weapons at the current rate (today/yesterday was the last day for the DLC Double Duels content)).
