Maybe simply good music instead of half-arsed music  :D

I think I had something similar with Necron except it was Quina standing and Zidane was beserked. I hate status effects :(

I would suggest trying:

The World Ends With You - Has all of your requirements. It is a weird game that requires a lot of use of the touch controls and takes place in modern day Tokyo.

Legend of Heroes, Trails in the Sky - has three of your requirements and is an amazing RPG in itself. It is a fantasy RPG. Music isn't J-Pop but it is enjoyable.

Radiant Historia - three of your requirements. AMAZING RPG, definately worth a try if you can get it still. Doesn't do J-Pop tho.

Anyone have a game script? The cutscenes don't seem to be captioned and my hearing isn't good enough to make out the voice acting :(

First FF was one of my first console games too. I got the SNES for Christmas, played Super Mario world and Legend of Zelda, Link to the Past. The first game I chose myself was FF4 which I rented, then bought because it just captivated me. I played through that obsessively and pretty much did everything possible.

I ran out to look for the next FF and got FF: Mystic Quest which was the only other FF for the SNES at the time. It was also fun but very disappointing after the massive game that was FF4 - I was finished it in a weekend!

FFVI came out a year or so later and I was gleeful to play that. I ended up carefully managing my Espers so that Terra and Celes got magic stats levelled up every level, so by the end of the game, they were magic wielding monsters. I did the same with Locke and Setzer and ended up with a party that could wipe bosses in one turn.

I dithered on getting FF7 because the Playstation was expensive. Eventually I rented a PS and FF7 and one of the two was broken - it wouldn't go past the train scene. They didn't have any other copies so I kinda stewed over getting the PS for a long time. I finally got it, but the train scene made me nervous every time I started a play through. I still kinda expect it to get stuck there! I also remember fighting Emerald Weapon and accidently having Yuffie's Materia giving her 7777 HP. She pretty much soloed Emmy for hours (she was only doing 1000 points of damage a turn). Weirded win ever.

Eight and Nine were enjoyable but my favorite is FFX.

Wow, such a glowing review! I am surprised, I was figuring something middling considered a few of us just got bored with the game.
172  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade or Final Fantasy 12.. what's your preference? on: August 06, 2012, 12:27:19 PM
Xenoblade by a long long long distance. I ENJOYED it so much more. FFXII was boring. Xenoblade had amazing settings, characters (granted, FFXII looked better graphically), story, fun quests and exploration, and engaging battle. I barely slogged through FFXII. I played through Xenoblade twice and enjoyed the whole ride.

Ah, the big update is here!

Ooh, extended ending came with a free soundtrack? *scurries off to download* Thank you!!!

Well, its nicer than seeing the USA-centric channels. Ok Phelps, whatever, haven't we seen enough? There ARE other athletes and events I'd like to see. I like to see how the Canadians are doing, even if its "just" bronze. And of course whatever the Canadians are losing at, we still see plenty of "winner" footage.

175  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The sports thread- 2012 edition on: August 01, 2012, 06:16:03 PM
Just having the Olympics on in the background - so far I mostly tune in if its (1) a Canadian (2) something that is a bit more interesting to me like gymnastics or medal rounds.

Sports I watch:
- Hockey, Go Canucks Go!   [spoiler] or at least don't choke... please...? [/spoiler]

Sports I do:
In my early 20s I was good at Tae Kwon Do and got a third place medal in sparring at a province-wide tournament. Unfortunately, my back was really messed up when someone rear-ended my car at 50km/m (yeah, cause your cell phone was more important than seeing a car stopped at a red light) and between that an a tweaked wrist, I wasn't able to get back into it regularly without putting my back out.

So what I do is more date things with my husband for fun - bowling, pitch&putt golf, skating, biking. Nothing regularly.
176  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Chaos Rings, HD or no HD? on: August 01, 2012, 06:10:49 PM
I have the non-HD too. On such a small screen, does it really make that big of a difference? The graphics were still beautiful.

The review link doesn't work for me:

Its a very easy, charming FF. I blew through it in one weekend (and that's with sleep, food, etc), whereas FFIV took me months.

The music is really catch though. I still have tunes in my head.

I chose safe job (bank manager) over dream job (artist/potter).

There was just no way I was ever going to make enough to feel secure in my dream job. I am very good at pottery, even sold out some shows in galleries when I was younger, but I can't see myself being famous enough to be one of the few who command top dollar. At least painters can produce cards and prints; its harder to sell "duplicates" of sculptures and the like.

The Bank was the only place willing to hire a deaf person after 2 years of looking when I was young. It turned out that I am very very good at boring bank stuff. My safe job is boring, but I work normal hours, can enjoy my video games and pottery after work and on weekends and make enough to support my hobbies.

I have no kids and no intention of having any so I am able to squirrel away enough money to hopefully retire a bit earlier than 65 - maybe then I'll do my "dream job"  ;-)

Already pre-ordered and hoping that this is more enjoyable that Gungnir was.
