Not so sure about FFX-2 though, it basically ruins FFX's story.

Can you explain in how many ways X-2 is horrible? Because I really enjoyed my time with it (more so than X).
I wouldn't say that it is horrible, per se, but it does fuck up FFX's thematic elements. I thought story was one if FFX's biggest advantages and X-2 kind of messes that up retroactively due to everyone wanting a happy ending.

I agree with Ashton 100%. The finale of X was one of the ballsiest and most genuine in the series, and X-2 was like
Code:
'hur derp nope fayth magic'

If it helps, it takes the 100% to get him back in X-2 which is almost impossible without a guide.  And if you manage to achieve the 100% blind, you deserve a super duper nonsense ending.

I kinda would have preferred if Yuna "moved on".  Tidus was a giant wank anyways.

Battle: X-2 > X
"Plot": X > X-2
Music: X >>>> X-2
Characters: Any other game.
Controls: I've never understood how this is graded.

Three articles.  The first two detail the event, a teacher who had recently gotten a sex change was found killed.  The final article is an editorial by a writer who said the teacher should have been let go (written several months before her death).

So I thought this would be fun to share.
Dunno how many HAVE seen it already.

This is the Japanese "laughing scene".

...it's like he's screaming in small doses.

EDIT: Screen Comparison.  THis is actually pretty impressive.  Wakka's outfit change quite nicely.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 remaster confirmed for Western release.

http://gematsu.com/2013/03/final-fantasy-x-x-2-hd-remaster-headed-westward-this-year

It apparently has a price point of 40$.

Ouch.  If it's priced at $40, I wonder what the PSV ones wil be.

I'm listening to J-pop.... turned into classical music.  It's actually quite lovely and sometimes hard to imagine it was one all up-beat and pop-y.

I played Vesperia PS3, you're really not missing that much.

I wonder how many of the people whining about it would actually buy it if it came out today...

I agree, the improvements on the PS3 are minimal.  Buut a few things to remember:
(1a) Not everyone has an XBox
(1b) Some have dead Xbox's now that won't play Vesperia360 anymore

(2) We've been pretty teased and strung along like a crush that won't stop flirting with you but doesn't want anything to do with you (like FilthieRich using the VespPS3 logo to his Graces teaser image; apparently additional voicework was on the 360 game and Troy Baker saying it was good to go; and that recent Playstation poll putting VesPS3 in its "RPG" category as an example for "what genres we want to see")

(3) It really hurts because it was almost *disturbingly* obvious that something was missing in Vesp360 (see bright red arrows)

(4) The Vita "efforts" for the DS "remakes" have been really bad.  At their best, they provide good nostalgia in a slightly updated form; and their worst, they look, play, and feel like they've been outsourced titles (which they are).  I think Innocence-R may actually hurt the brand on Western shores, while Hearts-R made a few questionable decisions about what was changed up.


Word around the campfire is thinking the "secret announcement" is about Xillia 2; which might make sense as far as getting voice actors back to reprise their roles (just get it all done while doing voices for Xill1), but may be too soon.

Graces f is going digital

Xillia [re]confirmed for Summer.

Apparently more surprises for a Tales-filled year, but I'm not the speculating type.
Thanks Hideo Baba!.  I love that strange looking man all of a sudden.
(I'd die happy if they said Vesperia PS3 and Destiny PS2...!!!)
