So I went to the FF wiki to see if the Protect Ring was any good and this is what you can find there (link):

"The Protect Ring is an add-on that halves the damage from all elements, as well as providing +1 Spirit, +2 Defense, +4 Evasion, +3 Magic Defense, and +6 Magic Evasion. It teaches the abilities Half MP, Long Reach, and Mag Elm Null, and can either be bought from Mene for 8,500 points, or synthesized for 40,000 gil, Rebirth Ring, and Dark Matter at Hades's Synthesis shop. Others can be acquired by completing the Mognet sidequest, using a Dead Pepper at a mountain crack on the eastern part of the Lost Continent, and by answering all of the Ragtime Mouse's questions correctly."

To be fair, I only played through the game once back when it first came out and then had my memory card reformatted to make room for a stupid anime fighting game. Despite the occasional attempt, I never actually made it back to disk 4 again due to the game being a boring slog and both of my PSXes being PoSes.

Also I didn't even know that the hideout was accessible given that almost everywhere that isn't the final dungeon, the chocobo sidequest spots, Treno, the Qu marshes, Quina's mentor's place, or the BMV had a severe overgrowth problem.

Because they can't let anything go. EVAR!

It wouldn't surprise me to see this end up becoming Type-0 II as its made of scraps leftover from the development of Type-0 1.

Just got to the World of Ruin in FF VI.  In the middle of Skuldafn temple in TES V. 

Is there also an Alegra and/or a Clairitan D temple?

excuse me while I lol at this.
The only thing more powerful on the ps4 then my computer is its memory  my GPU and oced cpu utterly trashes it.

Some dork named Kevadu wrote a lengthy comment on that very article explaining why the PS4's CPU is a lot better than people seem to give it credit for.  But don't listen to him, he's probably crazy...

Like an ascended cyber-archangel descending upon the gibbering mad peons, offering them the fires of knowledge while they stab amongst themselves with pointy sticks.

You know, if they really were from the future, then they should know how this is going to end. Maybe all of their anti-consumer bullshit is them trying to milk their future powered lotto ticket for all its worth. That, or they're taking some circuitous steps to try to preserve the future they came from by sabotaging the XBone Steins;Gate style.

Despite pretenses, the Zelda series never really goes beyond Hyrule or the kingdom of the week. The largest scale any Zelda game ever adopts is in Zelda 2 which consists of two primary landmasses and an island or three (although debatable, its still all one kingdom). That or the Oracle games which takes place across two separate lands, plus underground, plus in the past, plus a cameo of Hyrule (kinda).

Actually, most Nintendo RPG series rarely stake "The ENTIRE world" like games like Final Fantasy do on a regular basis. Pokemon kinda gets close but at best its region-wide. Fire Emblem would too if it weren't for all of the other continents kicking around. Not sure about Earthbound or Mother 3 though.

Karma: does it exist? does it not?

I think one thing needs to be clear... there's no way xbox and ps4 will have a different take on used games.

I suspect that they will take different paths (though neither will remain as it currently is), and the real matter hinges on which side do the retailers take.

Kinda like the HD-DVD versus Blu-Ray formats last generation.

Matsuno Fantasy or maybe letting Masato Kato work on a project that isn't set up to screw him over would interest me.

I can dream

For the love of god this.

A new Tactics Ogre Battle 64: Knights of Lodis would be nice, especially since Squeenix already took the liberty of revisiting the series with the PSP remake of Tactics Ogre.

I'm hoping for a buy it all deal for like 20 bucks when the DLC is done. Otherwise I don't see a point.

But the DLC is done (except for the weapons but those are free anyways and will require another 7 weeks to finish).


An additional to my previous post: interested in seeing what comes up as the game's original characters (provided there are any).


And an Edit: http://www.siliconera.com/2013/05/25/fire-emblem-awakening-was-almost-the-last-game-in-the-series/

Talk about close calls. Though this does suggest that future games will probably move further away from older games for both good and ill.

Recently I've been doing a fair amount of article-writing and proofreading for a Final Fantasy website where I'm a veteran.  That made me realize - I haven't beaten FF VI in something like ten years.  I played it so much in the middle and late 90s that I barely even touched the GBA version.  So I'm remedying that.  Currently around 4 hours in; just finished the Magitek Factory.  I've also done more than the usual amount of introspection on the game. 

 I am currently replaying FFVI as well. I am heading to the Magitek Factory now, and I am glad to see someone else got the FFVI fever. This game really is the total package: All killer and no filler. I even died a few times by being a little to brave. Celes as an end game character is indeed broken.

While maybe not filler, I've never really liked how weirdly placed Crescent Island was in the WoB segment. Half of that scenario felt like it belonged inbetween Zozo and the Magitek Factory or alternatively in between the defense of Narshe and Zozo. Especially since you recruit two characters you otherwise barely have any time to use before you lose your party for the WoR transition and the three statues revelation feels like a Chekhov's Gun that got mounted too late.

Sounds convoluted and only really profitable for Microsoft.

It doesn't necessarily have to be the characters from Devil Survivor in SMTxFE. Part of the gameplay style/structure sure.

Two of my favourite series in one game. I still can't believe it's going to actually happen.

Man, has it been more than a decade since Super Smash Bros Melee came out and properly introduced the west to Fire Emblem (not counting all the NP articles or that lovely OVA that decided to waste everybody's time on Mystery's first book instead of the far more interesting second book)? It was weird enough seeing Mario, Link, Samus, and so on in the N64 game but suddenly you had triple the cast and included a mountain of collectables, each with their own little factoids about all sorts of games and series, some of which still haven't left Japan, let alone all the things that had yet to come out between then and now.

Granted, its unreasonable to expect something like that again, but using the opportunity to go into both series' history and details to hook gamers onto the one they didn't come for is something that I'm looking forward to.


Meanwhile, I've finished Future Past 3 and got the second ending. Now to grind a bit to take on the final DLC.

Now you too can blow a couple of Benjamins (or whatever passes for Cannuck's $100) on a tacky replica of Squall's Gunblade to display next to your Kilingon Bat'leth (or however its spelled).

As for expectations that are being built up to be dashed expertly, I'd like Parasite Eve 3. Accept no substitutes.

Better yet, let them announce a collaboration between somebody like Capcom or Konami and announce either Breath of Fire 6 or Suikoden 6 respectfully.
