I can't really agree with everyone's points about FOF system. Sure, in the first half, it's pretty underutilized-- but once you can easily create them and you learn the AD Skill to use the white circles, it's pretty easy to pull them off in nearly every battle.

On the other hand, hurray for technical glitches being ironed out!

People are assholes. Easily explained.

I have it, it was (I believe) my number four game of the last decade. I love TotA. Favorite Tales game by far.

Eric is great! He's the only one of you that never struck me!

People talking about FFIX and wanting to play it.

We could stop podcasting forever and I would consider us a rousing success. Or an arousing success. Both work.

And his point about Zidane and Dagger is a good one about JRPGs of today lacking a real sense of subtlety overall, especially with character development.

You refer to FF9 in a positive context. All our prior disagreements are forgiven.

Maybe they'll actually add some skills other than trial and error? Or not penalize players by making them grind for hours? Just wondering.

I never had to grind. And being careful and observant allowed you to pass almost every challenge in the game.

They have done not one single thing to display an anticonsumer tendency

Now I know you're just trolling. It's an online pass. It's labeled online pass. Online passes are blatantly anti-consumer.
It punishes people whether they buy the game new or not. It does not reward them.

I'm trolling because I don't agree with you? And you've completely ignored my main statement. This doesn't HARM anyone. It in no way punishes you if you buy new. If you buy the game new, not a single thing has changed. If you buy used, you have to pay for extra nonessential content. You don't buy a used car and expect it to come strapped with all the perks of a new car.

Apples and oranges.

It's more like saying you shouldn't expect a used book to come with all the chapters in it.


Except that all the chapters in a book are essential. The House of Valor quests are not.

As Eusis said, the conversation needs to change back to the game now.

And you've presented no proof about what they're doing other then "They said that's what they're doing! It must be true!"

Nor do you have any proof that the opposite is true, either.

How are they bilking people out of money? By encouraging them to buy new instead of used? They're not making extra money off of those who were planning to buy it new anyway. And if it WERE paid DLC (or if it becomes paid DLC, much like how Mass Effect 2 included the Cerberus Pack for free, but if your copy is used you have to buy the CP), who's being forced to buy it? No one.

Yup. And instead of giving it free to new purchasers, they could have just NOT done an online pass and released it as paid day one DLC for everyone-- then EVERYONE would have to pay for it. By your logic, Lard, this would be preferable to the online pass.

I am having a hard time figuring out how rewarding the consumer who supports your product while still allowing those who opt for the cheaper route a method to get this content is anti-consumer.

And my proof is based upon every single act and word spoken by this game's development team since this game was announced. They have done not one single thing to display an anticonsumer tendency, and in fact have come across as some of the most dedicated and humble people (open to change and criticism) dedicated to making a game that RPG lovers will enjoy that I've seen in recent years. And we have people on staff who have MET THEM and can confirm this.

EDIT:

Leyviur isn't being petty, shitty, or miserable. He's just blunt. He's saying what everyone else is avoiding saying.

Your reasoning is absurd, and your tinfoil hat theories aren't lending any credibility to your arguments.

You can frame it however you want, but reasoning that online passes are shitty is not absurd.

And you can frame it any way YOU want, but you're presenting nothing more than a fairly cynical opinion. Shame on those developers for trying to make money of their game. It's simply immoral!

I have listened to the music as well. I like it. And if you're interested in Grant Kirkhope, you should keep an eye on the site in the near future ;)

I Ty

I can't wait to see how this pans out.  :)

And done what? Said "no thanks, we don't need your money and support to finish our game. Welp, let's pack up shop guys, they want us to have an online pass. Our passion and our game aren't worth it."
