Neither, I thought the game was an absolute bore.

I guess a game with a decent story, entertaining dialog, and various approaches to both the story and combat would be boring, right?

I have to say... FF2 is pretty interesting. I was surprised to see some good innovation here for a game this old.

What I like:
~Playing the PSP Anniversary edition the graphics are improved even more so than FF1 was previously. Game looks like a top notch 16bit-er. And there's enough of an improvement from FF1psp ->FF2psp to make it feel like two different games
~Learning key phrases and then asking various NPcs about them. Sure not all the NPCs have responses for all the phrases but it adds something more than running up to people and mashing a button to get through text
~DUAL WIELDING. You can dual wield weapons with seemingly little penalty. My one dude has an axe and a broadsword going and he's fucking shit up. This also helps level crap up faster
~Music: love the battle theme and I'm glad to see new tracks all around. Esp after playing some of the DQ re-releases on the DS which both seem to have the exact same music...which shares a bit of DQ8 as well

SE just released the english version of the trailer:

She mentions another realm, which makes sense considering the ending of the novel. A return to cocoon was already unlikely but I think we can rule out revisiting the same locations like in X-2.

she has a nice butt

Well I played for about 45 min. Ventured too far east and got killed. The distance of about 4 paces changed the monsters I fought from hornets to vampires who dealt like 100 damage and charms.


D'oh!

Goose is on the left! Fall in line, Soldier!

I'm starting up 2 right now. Never played this either on any platform.

Naming my characters. Main guy = Yoda
Chick = Lisa (my cat)
Guy = Goose
Leon = Pipo

I am.

'Goose is on shore-leave right now

A picture of Goose on shore-leave:


He's on the left. I'm on the right.


I'm also putzing through FFX concurrently

Yeah!

Thank you for your offer. I'd probably rather play the GBA editions due to shitty loading times but since I have the PSX versions they'll have to do.

A friend of mine told me Anansi Boys is the weakest of his novels, recommending Neverwhere instead.

These days I'm reading Kindle samples of trashy fantasy novels, but nothing's really grabbed me so far. I've been meaning to read Haruki Murakami for a while though, so I may start into one of his books.

I read Sputnik Sweetheart last summer. A good quick read and entertaining enough. Wild Sheep Chase is in the hopper.

Finished FF1 on PSP.

Took longer than I expected, didn't play for a few weeks. I had gotten to a point, cleared a dungeon but missed something. Had to go back but didn't feel like it.


Well I haven't beaten that since I was a kid, probably 20 something years ago. MEMORIES.....LIKE THE CORNERS OF MY MIND...MISTY WATER COLORED MEMORIEEEESSS...





Chaos was a byatch the 1st time I fought him. So i went and did some of the optional dungeons and did other random grinding. I also hit up every town and got all the barrier spells I had missed.

FF1 Haiku:

Starmongoose, hi guy
Come on in and set a spell
eat my lead, turkey


edit: I started this thread before that psp game became Type Zero.


Close enough for me to claim my lordship over... a small section of Montana :(

All of this looks interesting.

With ME3, DA2, and a plethora of PSP tities and a backlog of an infinite amount of PS2 games to play I'm set for lyfe

My advice: flirt with Kelly.

Stupid that this is coming out on a Sunday - means that I can't pick it up at Amazon and will have to preorder it at a brick and mortar store.  And pay stupid Illinois taxes.  Maybe I'll drive to Wisconsin to buy it.

I think we're going to have to start paying taxes on innernette shits anyway.

My first erection that I remember was seeing Who Framed Roger Rabbit in the theater.

What a time to be alive
