I actually burst into laughter. ;)

I know I don't post here often, but I have to share:

I beat Final Fantasy VII for the first time ever today.

I've had the game for a few years, but hadn't gotten around to playing it until a fortnight or so ago. I wasn't sure what to expect going in, especially since it's nearly 20 years old (!) now. But it was awesome. It got a little slow around the middle of Disc 1, but overall it had me pretty engaged from beginning to end. Good cast of characters, interesting story, and nice to get the real story behind Crisis Core (which I played and loved years ago).

Final battle was awesome. Except for Supernova... seriously, that thing is exhausting to watch again and again and again. :P

This game setup officially sounds too confusing to even bother. They really didn't need to make this game so complicated. They're pretty much setting themselves up so only die hard Fire Emblem fans are going to bother picking this up.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with this. As much as I want to go into an FE game blind for once, this has quickly turned out to be a case of 'look before I leap'. Fortunately, Japan will have months of playtime to go through the game and post all the data that I could want to make my choice with.

Also agreed. This just hurts my head. Just give me a regular FE game.

Imma let you finish, but Warrior of Light is the most story irrelevant FF character ever.

Who the hell plays a team with a Warrior in it? Its 4 White Mages all the way (to White Wizards).

Not just story irrelevant, but also gameplay irrelevant. Poor guy.

I played #1 in... 2010ish on PSP for the first time and really enjoyed it. #2 I could never get into.

Lol! That is amazing.

As someone who started playing Pokemon myself around the age of 8, I think you'd be surprised how easily she might catch on to X & Y.

Yes, there are a ton of new and complicated features available in the later entries in the Pokemon series (Blue/Red are definitely the simplest). However, most of it is optional - there's actually very little you must know/understand to progress through the game. Heck, when I was playing the early entries when I was little I didn't even understand attacks that inflicted status effects properly - I'd just give my Blastoise 4 water attacks. Terrible strategy, but I had a really good time.

Still, I would advise Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire over X/Y. I think they're a bit less overwhelming with their features and take a more traditional approach to game progression. If she's used to seeing modern games, handing her anything older than Platinum might not be that fun for her, and the 3D models in ORAS/XY are way more fun.

Combat reminds me of Crisis Core more than anything else.

The first 2ish hours of the game I was not impressed. I was completely confused as to what was happening, too many gameplay mechanics were thrown at me, and the terrible writing/voices didn't help.

Fortunately, another 2-3 hours in, I'm now really enjoying it. I feel I finally understand what's happening from a story/gameplay perspective.

I'm really sad to say I won't be buying Shallie. The Dusk Trilogy has just been continually disappointing for me, and I'm just not willing to take the risk with Shallie. Plus, it sounds even more boring from a gameplay perspective and Eschatology was.

I have played MM on N64 back in the day, but I don't remember the moon very well. I'll keep that in mind and prepare myself!

I am! Well... was. Just went through again... but got stuck after getting the boss key and ran out of time. ...So, third time's the charm, I guess? :/

I was playing really late last night and got a fair way through Stone Tower Temple. Since I had to get up early for work in the morning I just closed my 3DS lid to put it to sleep so I could come back tonight.

Opened the 3DS and I stupidly, instinctively, tapped the power button.

"SOFTWARE CLOSED."

Fuuuuuuu

Of all the confusing things about that temple though, freezing isn't high on the list. But I do see what you're saying. I'm more disappointed that I can't have fun just creating lots of platforms now. :P

You can now only freeze small areas of water that sparkle. Enemies can still be frozen though.
