Hmm... I guess it depends on which version of the PS3 you have or luck?

I just started over because I had to try and create a character that I was happy with. Not even the presets look decent. It was not that hard in origins and DA2 or in ME or SWTOR. Don't know what they did with the character creation in this game to make it so bad. It would be fine if it was a game that didn't have cut scenes that showed your characters face all the time but since it does i cannot stand it if my character looks bad. But I finally did a good looking woman who didn't look like she had some horrible accident to her face. Finally I can enjoy the game. And yes I know I am a bit crazy but that is how important it is for me to create a character I am happy with in a game like this.

No worries. I restarted quite a few Bioware games because the face in game looked weird and bugged me out.

Anyone playing this on PS3? Been busy with work/night classes/other games and haven't opened the packaging yet. Seeing the grief online I am half wondering if I should try take it back and get It for the ps4 instead (don't have one yet but will sometime in 2015)

NieR:  Does this count?  Reading the Grimoire NieR (why the material in there wasn't made more substantial in the game is a crime).  Also playing "New Game+" mode and hearing the "enemies" finally.


Those poor wolf enemies *sniff*

Ps one of the previous games let you change your face a bit in some Mage lair. Is there anything like that here?


Did anyone find something like this yet?

I have the same problem in every Bioware game too - it's really really difficult to construct a face that is not freakish, especially if you want a female face that is feminine. I spend waaaaaaay more time than I should tinkering.

I don't hope for failure. I hope for a game that is well made and fun to play, with a good story. The FFxiii trilogy failed for me. ff12 failed for me. I have enjoyed every non-online Ff prior to that.

I have enjoyed Bravely Default overall, but please no more parallel dimensions with the same stuff as previous chapters. I get what they were trying to do though.

Finally advancing past the troll cave in Perils of Rosella. Ok gimme a break, I was like 7 at the time and that cave scared the crap out of me! I dithered for ages trying to avoid it because the darkness + chasm + hungry troll lurking about was pretty scary at the time.

The Golbez battle in the underworld's dwarven castle in FFIV.

Celes's suicide in FFVI.

Meeting Yunelesca in FFX. The ending of FFX.

The world being destroyed within the first ten minutes of the game in Nocturne.

Digital Devil Saga (1 + 2) gave me many chills. I still consider that one of the most amazing games story-wise. Its hard to list them all. I am reading the book version now, and damn if it makes me want to dust off the PS2 and play it again.

Well fortunately America doesn't have tonberries, behemoths and chocobos so I doubt the drivers side will be as jarring 😋

Though we do have Molboros (in convenience stores and gas stations all over the place).

And they cause bad breath!

And make other people get poisoned, go crazy and try run away!

It's really hard to talk for hours... I usually liked activity dates because you can be quiet and do things together instead of awkwardly staring at each other across the table. Maybe relax and let things laspe into just enjoying the moment a few times?

I work full time and decided I wanted to finish getting my Bachelorate (with an English Major) so I have been working evenings and weekends through online courses at my local university. This course is the second to last one I will need and I am doing sociology. I have an essay to write and normally I write good essays by twisting the subject to fantasy and mythology and got great marks because I bring new ideas to well trodden paths. I don't think I can do that in sociology, so I am writing an essay on video games.

Took today off to work, so I guess i better get back to it.... 💻 📝 📄 📃 📑 📚 even if it's a beautiful day ☀️ outside and I rather 🔥➕📔

@Both: I honestly think that "gaming downtime" is as important as how much you thrust your players into the action as well. A lot of people bitched about FF13's lack of towns, and I think that was a big reason for it.  The Last of Us was especially great at making "safe zones" where you would chat with Elie are what really make a game memorable and feel more like "simple characters".  I also think the Tales series thrives really well on this because of their skits --- they tend to goof around half of them, and talk plot points that otherwise flesh out or wouldn't have made it into the game otherwise.

I agree, characterization is really important to me in RPGs and in addition to the story, I find it really develops them to have some downtime random scenes together that don't advance the story but do show more of the characters together in less serious situations. I love the skits and ATbs mentioned. I love just having some lighter random scenes. FF13 was just too serious all the time and never had any real downtime to sit back, relax, explore a town, chat with people and perhaps chat with your party members too. Star Ocean used to have your party break up and explore the town separately and you could chat to people outside of the party as well as some optional scenes.

I can't really think of any games that did naughty bits very well except perhaps for any that faded to black and let the players' imagination fill in what happened. Bioware sex bits are more laughable than sexy due to how clunky and awkward they look. The fade to black thing... You think Tidus and Yuna did more than splash around in the water near Macalania Woods? 💋

I'd love read your take in FF8 Dice!

I don't post much, but just wanted to say I really enjoyed reading your adventures through ff7 🎲🎲

I need a standing ovation gif.
