Might not be entirely work safe for less than obvious reasons.

Holy crap, what was that? Were those excerps from the actual script? If so, that was laughably bad. XD

I believe that was 90's anime dubbing at its finest.



Might as well post something while I'm at it.

I don't mind the combat in Xenoblade. I actually find it impressive that you can respond to the flow of battle well enough just by paying attention to all the battle cries your party members make. Listening to Reyn's Wild Down can tell you when to prepare to apply your next stagger inflicting move.

i may still play but the art style is just uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggglllllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eh. It's a small price to pay for an otherwise awesome game.

Besides there'll be a beach side and hot springs DLC map. It'll (probably) include a new Swimsuit class.

Remember when I posted the update with the vague release window?


I updated.

I actually think Gau is one of the top three most powerful/useful characters in FF VI.  True story. 

My best Final Fantasy memory is probably seeing the opera in FF VI for the first time.  Wasn't expecting that.  When you regain control of Locke I was actually disappointed, because I wanted it to keep going. 

Worst?  Probably when I played FF Tactics for the first time and I discovered the second area where you can't leave between story battle sequences (the castle where you fight Velius/Belias).  I was so distressed by my inability to take a break for leveling up (Velius was kicking my ass) that I was reduced almost to tears and considered restarting the game.  FF Tactics is one of my all-time favorite games now, but for awhile I was incredibly pissed off about that.  Gotta keep two save files.

If you know what you're doing then yes, Gau is among your top three party members along with Edgar and either Terra or Sabin even without Wind God powers. Early on some of his rages will allow you to perform attacks and spells beyond what you can currently access, then much later on he can become a physical tank with a Snow Muffler and virtually indestructible with the Magic Pot rage. Unfortunately, Edgar's much easier to use than Gau, Terra, Celes, and Relm can all ratchet their magic damage up much more easily with all the female gear and costumes available to them, and Sabin's Bum Rush is just that fucking ridiculous. Of course you can stick the Gem Box and Economizer on him and have him learn Ultima through the Paladin Shield (then keep it on afterwards) and turn Gau into a nigh immortal god of destruction (unfortunately you can do the same to Mog and he can also equip the Moogle Charm as well for when you just give no fucks).

Incidentally I also recall what was probably the most ridiculous FF encounter in my life when I fought the Ice Dragon MKII fight for the first time in the Dragon's Den in the FFVIA port. The party wound up mostly wiped pretty early on in the fight except for Mog whom I foolishly set to dance. Que a night long battle between a mostly frozen dancing moogle and four Ice Dragons that couldn't do more than delay the inevitable with all the Stop spells and freezing attacks (and then just freezing attacks when they all ran out of MP) they could spam at him.

And speaking of which, a second batch of DLC is being released in Japan starting later this week.

(There's also a video but I've decided to hold off on posting a link to it due to massive spoiler reasons.)

Unlike the last set, this DLC set looks to be more focused on either giving your post game team something to do with ridiculous challenges, adding extra conversations between characters to better flesh them out along with goofy alternate costumes, or by letting you tackle a major plot event that more or less occurred behind the scenes of the game's standard plot.

Felt embarrassed for some reason when I first went through FFs VII and VIII.

Now I know why....

Rented the hell out of FFVI. Forced my youngest brother into it as well and now he has the victory theme as his ring tone.

Got and played through the PSX FFs as they came along save for VIII (which I had to borrow off of said brother until I completed it) and IX (which for political reasons is no longer mine but I still completed it).

Forced myself to take a break from FFVI to check out FFV and I haven't regretted it since.

FFIV was probably my first FF game but I never got a chance to really play it until the PSX version and that was after going through Chrono Trigger.

FFI required a trip to a used game store to pick up and then Origins came along and I both played through that version along with my first attempt at FFII where I made the exact same mistake as everyone else and tried to powerlevel my party. Went back to II much later though and completely avoided level grinding which was what I needed to get through the game.

First played FFIII on the emulator (along with SD3, Terranigma, and the SuperNES version of FFVI which is where I noted that HP and MP growth is exactly the same for every character and fixed at every level) and then eventually the inferior DS version.

FFT was my first SRPG and once I figured out how to place my team down properly I was hooked enough to run through three more times. Didn't need to restart the game either since I figured out that with my untapped spillover JP and MA/Move boosting gear I could make Ramza into a serviceable Wizard with the ability to one shot Weigraf with a Flare (and take a healthy chunk out of Velius with a second Flare before dying horribly). Didn't figure out why leaning on the crutch of T.G. Cid was a bad idea until it was too late but I did manage to deduce the brokenness of the Oracle's Life Drain spell so I beat Altma with that instead.

I also got FFMQ used but it is awesome in a neat and simple way (which is the complete antithesis of today's Squeenix) and anyone who says otherwise should :frogout:.

FFX is the only proper FF game I have yet to beat. Unfortunately I got a copy used so I have no interest in the upcoming(?) HD version.

I enjoyed FFXII for what it was worth when it first came out but I wish it was better than being a garbled mess and the antichrist of OCDs everywhere. Fortunately Xenoblade Chronicles exists so now my wish has come true.

FFTA was a massive disappointment due to its grindy and repetitive nature. TA2 wasn't nearly enough of an improvement to bother finishing right now.

All the sequels and compilations can go die in a fire and burn in hell. I have yet to encounter a single one of these that wasn't completely and irredeemably godawful in the worst ways imaginable.

FFXI is an MMO and thus does not exist. FFXIV also does not exist but by virtue of not actually existing in any sort of usable form yet.

I'm kind of curious why the selection of classic games on the PSN is so small. There must be some rather interesting reason for not shoving everything you can on there. After all, its potential revenue from reselling old games with, what I assume is, minimum effort.

I've always had a hunch that the ultimate plan was to hold off on select titles they knew were gonna be hits and make them exclusively available to the next gen consoles somehow whilst making all the previous titles still available as well. Always seemed like a solid strategy to make sure they get us for every dime we are worth..LoL.... ok... so that is more diabolical than funny.... but none-the-less I can totally see them doing that.. I mean, I imagine when the next gen consoles do become available, they are going to want to make it as advantageous to upgrade as possible.

While I can see what you're getting at, I don't think that's quite it. My guess is that its something fairly obvious, but elusive enough not to get noticed by someone that isn't in the industry. I'm also guessing that its probably something incredibly stupid from a consumer point of view.

They probably lost the license to a number of those old games. And then there's the probability that they don't want to bother resubmitting them to ratings boards for concerns of costs.

5094  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade or Final Fantasy 12.. what's your preference? on: August 06, 2012, 07:19:31 PM

Its what FFXII wanted to be in the first place.

(Although I will give credit to FFXII's Gambit system, allowing you to program your own AI (though even that needed a 'has lootable item' condition check).)

I'm starting to think Parn is the final boss...

All that hoarding, those bottles, the fairie...removing his equipment for power boosts.

At least the question of what to put into a bottle has been solved. Fucking EEEEEVVVVEEEERRYYYYTHIIIIIIINNNGGGGG!!!!!

5096  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time hits PSP / PSN on July 31st! on: August 06, 2012, 02:35:48 AM
While Growlanser wasn't a victim of this (it dressed its characters like hookers and pimps for a while now)

Seems more like a CareerSoft problem. It was there to an extent in Langrisser, and even without that name and a new character designer they have anti-grav breasts in Devil Survivor.

Langrisser was worst in that regard, DS breasts was too much even for a oppai lover like me.

You know, the breasts in Langrisser didn't bother me nearly as much as those ridiculous shoulder pads. Especially when they comprise of 80% of the character's outfit and make me question what doorways would look like to accommodate them.

Futurama Trip Report: Episode Se7en. Even for a Futurama episode the plot was out there. Still, the Frydog was great as well as using the escape pod to bail out on Leela's memory possibly returning.

I'm surprised he didn't make a joke about wanting to boot the fairy out of the far more valuable bottle.

But what if I died?

You have White Magic of your own don't you? You can take care of yourself.

But fine, if you insist you can keep your stinkin' fairy. Just keep in mind that the next time you need to bring a fish with you to open up the next dungeon that I told you so.

The team finds a con artist peddling a faerie. Parn is fascinated by faeries. It comes in a bottle. Eusis spends most of his time during the traversal between the caravan and the next town tormenting the creature, screaming "HEY LISTEN" to it when it least suspects.

I LOL'd at this. Hard.

I'm surprised he didn't make a joke about wanting to boot the fairy out of the far more valuable bottle.
