I couldn't disagree more. Personally, I think if you're saying "they don't look that much better," you haven't played any other HD re-releases. These are leaps and bounds ahead of any other HD collection that got nothing more than a texture filter and HD upscaling. Some of the remodeling and retexturing here is FAR better than the original.

On the other hand, if you don't like ports, that's fair. I like them because portable versions of games I love are ALLLLL-RIIGHT. Plus, Square needs the cash right now, hah.

Got mine. Score! Now I can play it, say I like it, and then get to level 15 and never play again!

I don't think that was his point at all. And a review is coming, we promise :)

Yeah I remember that. The last boss takes a while too, haha.

The whole thing, haha. It helps, but the fights still take a while O_o.

The final dungeon in FFXIII is annoying the hell out of me. Regular enemies are taking upwards of 10 minutes a piece to kill and they throw so many of them at you that it is impossible to avoid them. I get so sick of fighting them that I let myself die and click retry to try and dodge them. I've liked the battle system up to this point, but it's starting to get on my nerves a little bit. Hopefully this dungeon ends soon.

The final dungeon in that game is a slooooooooog. I had maxed the Crystarium as far as I could by that point, and it still took forever. At least the music is cool :)

Shows how much I know. I put over a hundred hours into DS and then another ~60 into DS:O and never even knew there were prevalent bugs. Evidently I am lucky to an absurd degree. Bullet dodged, I guess

How nice of them to release four albums full of music that are already available elsewhere. Where are all the REMIXES?! Hunter's Chance from the menu?! Laaaaame.
564  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Xillia panel at WonderCon! on: March 30, 2013, 04:16:54 PM
Awesome! Thanks for sharing-- I love me some Tales. I heard it's Sam Riegel playing Jude, which is awesome. Also, I'm so stoked for fully-voiced English skits. Even though I still haven't played Graces F, which apparently had them too? Or not? Either way, woohoo!

Probably getting an employee in trouble because of your perception of the corporation? Seriously?

I'm with you. I still like JRPGs in general, but I think Kyle absolutely nails it. I don't even agree with some of his examples and yet I still think it's a good point. Thanks a lot for commenting on it!
567  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I replay FFX or wait for the remake? on: March 29, 2013, 06:16:22 PM
I like remakes and new IPs and have no problem with either. I've enjoyed many of their new IPs, and just as many of their remakes and ports.
568  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I replay FFX or wait for the remake? on: March 29, 2013, 04:37:56 PM
I think FFV has one of the most enjoyable combat/character-building systems in the series. Give it a nice little makeover with some 3D and make the dialogue less patently absurd, and you could have a nice little portable JRPG to have some fun with. I'm also not a huge fan of FFIV in general, and was surprised by how much I enjoyed the remake, all things considered. I'd be very happy to see one done for V-- and if they get Matrix to do it, it could even be as purty as Bravely Default!
569  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I replay FFX or wait for the remake? on: March 29, 2013, 12:33:37 PM
I'm not completely sold on this game. I really enjoyed FFX. But I don't believe it really needed to be re-done. I feel like this is time and energy that could be spent on much better things. Polishing up ALREADY 3D graphics is like tracing over a picture and everyone saying "ooooh, what a pretty picture!" I'm not trying to sound too negative, I'm just disappointed that they put so much money into remaking this when much better games like FF6 and FF7 are still yet to have a worth while remake.
The difference between this and a FFVII remake is like the difference between fixing up a car and building a whole new car from scratch from already existing heavily edited blueprints.


 to see what they're going to screw up with that.

Not everyone hated FFIVDS, if that's what you're implying. I thought it was the best version of the game yet. I'd actually welcome the FFV 3DS port, personally.

The cloud saves seem nice but the fact you only "own" your games as long as you pay for the service and you lose them as soon as you stop paying for the service is a deal breaker for me.

Remember that's only for games that are free as part of the subscription.  Any games that you buy using a PS+ discount or sale (like me buying Hot Shots Golf for $9) are yours permanently.

And honestly I only consider the "free" thing an issue because you can't buy a game you got for free unless the subscription lapses, not unless you go for two accounts and I'd rather actually OWN the stuff under one account (nevermind when a free game is delisted then given a good Plus sale.) If I could still buy the games in case I wanted more permanent ownership then there'd be no problems at all.

Yeah, it's really not an issue for me. I don't plan on unsubbing, and even if I did, odds are good I'd have already finishing anything I want to play anyway. I love PS+, personally. I bought a Vita and within a day I had access to almost 15 games.
