I wouldn't say they are out of talent yet, but it's depleting fast.

If anything the company has lost its heart. I really can't tell if they care about games anymore or if it is just how they make their living.

I was making a FF13 jab :T

My ineptitude for noticing subtly has once again reared it's ugly head.

I like my smoke and mirrors. What is a stage magician without his smoke and mirrors? It would be pretty boring if he just stood their producing flowers and bunnies without any commentary or fireworks.

I don't think there is anything wrong with decorating some framework.

Though I am one of those horrible people who like overworld maps. Mostly because it puts some perspective into the world I am currently inhabiting. FFXIII had no overworld map, or any world map to speak of. Thus I was very confused about how a lot of the places in the game were interconnected and how you reached one place to the next, or what is next to that place or how far one place is from another place.


However I knew that Wutai was far away from Junon in FF7 cause I had a nice overworld to traverse and I could appreciate how difficult it was getting from one place to another. Of course the map is scaled down but it's better than nothing.
4384  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: E3 2010 and RPGs; Which of these games will you play in the future? on: June 09, 2010, 07:00:40 PM
In that list you would be lucky for me to pick a single game I am activly looking forward to. However I will probably give Final Fantasy 4 Heroes a go, hoping Square-Enix prove for me once and for all that they can't produce a decent turn-based game anymore - just so I can finally let go and mourn my loss.

I have yet to play Valkyria Chronicles , so I can't say I'm looking forward to 2. Though I do hope to pick it up sometime soon.

Actually, outside of a few select individuals, this board has one of the most mature online communities I've seen.

It's true. I actually don't take part in forums because I'm easily intimidated but this community is very tame and respectful (sometimes) and I wanted to be part of it.

If I were to go back on topic I would say that I'm not a fan of the Luck stat. I like it to be as strategic as possible and adding an element of random chance can be frustrating in battle. I don't mind it when it has to do with things like stealing or item drops though. Just in battle, if stats already gorvern things like evasion and accuracy. Why would just throw in another stat that has a chance of completely nullifying that particular stat.

You could skip FFVIII's tutorials though, I'm pretty sure of that.

Ten year-old me probably didn't know any better. :P


At ten years old I was still trying to figure out my "Your"'s from my "You're"'s. You make me feel horribly inferior and I insist that you cease and desist.

It took me a good year to finish the game, so we weren't all that sharp anyway. But yes'r.


I thought you were claiming to be ten years old right now, phew. I played FF7 when I was about 10 as well.

I definitely was confused by the Materia system the first time I played it. It was through a lot of trail and error that I finally got the hang on it. It seems so simple now but it was pretty new to me back then.

FF7 had a tutorial explaining Materia. That was all I think, and to be frank - it needs the explanation the first time you play it.
4389  Media / The Soundroom / Re: So... the site's podcast on: June 08, 2010, 05:59:05 PM
I was very amused that the first ever podcasts, first ever topic was on the subject of Final Fantasy.

Breaking us in easy, guys? :P

I stopped reading halfway through Soul of the Fire. I felt like he had exhausted his ideas because quite frankly it was getting comical how often their marriage was postponed. Do any of the other books return to the same quality of the first four or so books? Apart from Pillars of Creation apparently.

Yeah, it's like a puddingy porridgey thing made from ground lentils, sugar and milk. I watched a youtube video of a woman making it, it looks similar to the one my classmate brought to school when I was younger only less colourful. I think her mum put carrots and apple shavings through it.

Certainly was yummy though.

A lot of food nowadays contains gold leaf and such.

Anyway, I ended up twittering a friend who I went to school with and it turned out it was something called Moong dal halwa.

It looked like it was made out of vegetables cut into little slivers and rolled up into a ball. It was orange, yellow and a little red and was sticky. Like a kind of paste but not as fine. It was very sweet had a little spice through it as well.

When I was in primary school I remember a girl Lucky Sing bringing in some sort of sweet indian snack that was awesome. I really wish I could remember what it was called cause apparently I can still remember it 10 years later.
