I just got this game today though I didn't do anything except mess around in the totorial trying out the different classes.

I'd suggest reading this class building guide (it will get you up to speed on the dos and don'ts of each class with multiple suggested builds):

I'm probably going to stick with Wizard, I like how they play.

FF8 and FF13 have similar problems but I love them both because I love the characters. Vanille is like Sophie 2.0 in my eyes so of course I love her. Thinking about it, what stands out for me in both games are the music and the characters. What can I say, I liked voiced FF songs. As you can imagine, FF13-2 is my favorite OST of any FF game.

I don't know you, but I'm so glad you see the value of FFXIII-2's OST. It's not my all-time favorite among the series, but it is wildly good, probably the best of the XIII trilogy. Noel's Theme alone (sung by KOKIA) puts it head and shoulders above vocal tracks from other FFs.

FF13-2 is probably my favorite OST of any FF game. I'd say only Crisis Core comes close. Maybe I'm a sucker for j-pop with lyrics (if these songs even count as j-pop. Unsurprisingly, I love the OSTs of Person 3 and Persona 4. So its really not shocking that I love FF13-2 ost as well.

FF13 is super linear but its also one of the hardest FF games which is why I like it. Its also amusing to speed run. I tend to use Lighting Snow and Vanille a lot so I'm well aware my tastes in characters is quite different from most people. I hear Snow and I want to be a hero too! (he gets the cute girl too!)

Orgia dieing is a real shame. Some of my favorite FF13-2 songs are song by Orgia. XIII-2 : SUNLETH WATERSCAPE, XIII-2 OST - New Bodhum (aggressive mix), Historia crux. I swear, most of my time in FF13-2 is from listening to the songs.

Also, Ar Tonelico has some great music as well. I actually like that FF13 series has songs with lyrics that reference the story. The main theme for FF13 and FF13-2 both have versions with lyrics that reference the main characters main motivation. *obvious hint* Both games are about a girl trying to meet their sister again.


Speaking of music, Eyes on me is probably a large part of why I love FF8. lol First it was FF8 and now its the FF13 series. Why do I always love the FF games everyone else hates. lol

Who's Sophie?


LOL, oops. I meant Selphie. Vanille is totally Selphie 2.0. I can easily see Vanille singing trains, trains, trains.

When you set up a Visceral Attack with a gun shot, you can skip the visceral attack and just attack normally. If you do so, the next attack will do double damage. Normally a Visceral Attack will do more damage but certain weapons, like the canon will do ridiculous damage.

Definitely play it. The game lives up to the original Deus Ex. The DLC can be skipped, they are not great but the main game its self is awesome.

I'd be happy if they just made the main characters not look like a j-pop boys band.

I thought this WAS about the adventures of a j-pop boys band.

I'm just hoping they add in more depth to the combat. I'm also wondering how summons will be balanced or perhaps Runmah was purposefully made OP for the DEMO.

I'm just wondering if anyone else is getting the FF13 series on PC. I've replayed FF13 on PC now twice, the game certainly lends itself to speed running. FF13 on steam is only $16 bucks. FF13-2 $20. I'd say regardless of how you feel about the flaws of FF13, $16 is a steal for the game.

FF13-2 is more interesting since its been a long while since I played a game that reminded me of Chrono Trigger. Its quite a lot of fun to run around collecting monsters and jumping to different time periods of the same area lends it self to replaying the game (you can do things out of order to get certain items, weapons, monsters quicker). I enjoy it a lot and if you do things out of order it does make the game more challenging.

Lighting Returns is coming out on PC this spring so I'm looking foward to it.

If only we could get more JRPG release on PC.

I love FF8. Thanks to the FF13 series PC releases, I have the urge to replay FF games. I've beaten ff13 twice now in short order (second time a semi-speed run though) and I'm in the middle of FF13-2. Replaying FF7 currently.

FF8 and FF13 have similar problems but I love them both because I love the characters. Vanille is like Sophie 2.0 in my eyes so of course I love her. Thinking about it, what stands out for me in both games are the music and the characters. What can I say, I liked voiced FF songs. As you can imagine, FF13-2 is my favorite OST of any FF game.

As for FF8, I really enjoyed triple triad and the whole side quest involved with it. Completing this side quests more or less takes care of your magic junction needs. There isn't even a need to hunt down the rares magic if you can't be bothered, the games not so hard that you need to min-max much.

Thats good to know, I'll have to post that in the BSN forums. Though its probably been figured out already.

Tried that and she keeps using her basic range attack and very slowly makes her way to attack with the sword.  It's very frustrating....

lol, Ah well. I guess the AI is not made to handle knight enchanters well. I like to keep my mages as range support so? Sorry. kik

Go into the tactics page and deactivate every skill except the energy sword skill. Then Vivienne will spam that sword skill.

Yeah, I feel like I'm being punished for my archer rogue inquisitor.  He's basically a liability during a dragon fight, and his AI is pathetic at times.  He just stood in front of the dragon during a flame attack and got roasted a minute ago. 

Is there a safe zone during the flap attack?  I feel like most of my problems would go away if I could manage that damn pattern.  It doesn't seem to do any damage up close, but that kinda defeats the purpose of putting an archer in the back lines. 

The Archers role is to do damage, it doesn't matter if its up close or far way. The advantage of being an Assassin Rogue is that you can dish out damage with hidden blades up close where Long Shot would be infective. Just move your Archer close to the dragon to avoid that wing flapping attack and don't worry about not taking advantage of your range. If your not a rogue then I'd suggest controlling the party rogue yourself. Making use of a Rogue properly leads to the fastest Dragon kills possible.

The equipment thing is definitely a good point.  I was running around in the same armor for nearly thirty hours on my main character because I found something so insanely special that no other piece could really matched it.  Had to spend some time crafting to make things a bit easier.  It was never an issue since my mage and rogue do a great job of staying hidden during combat and the two warriors keep all the heat off of them.  The only real difficulty comes from enemies who spam attacks like the dragons that hit the whole party or those damn terror demons who jump attack back line party members out of no where.

Also, I think my Solas has a fucking deathwish.  He actually ran straight through the dragon's AOE lightning attack and died on the spot.  I'm still cleaning the spit off of my computer screen after that particularly loud rage session. 

Sometimes its best to set the AI off during the Dragon Battles and just micromanage them through the tactical view. This way you can move your ranged characters within the safe zone during a Dragon's wing attack and not have to worry about the AI being stupid and dodging right back into the damage zone.

I play an Archer Rogue myself because it turns out the AI handles rogues the least well of all the classes. Though a Party of 1 tank + 2 mages + Archer is pretty darn effective.

I'm quite happy that DA: I is winning so many game of the year awards, it deserves it. DA: I feels like my new skyrim.

Also, I'm not surprised someone could solo the game on nightmare with a Rogue Archer, its the most powerful class in the game. And stealth is the most powerful ability in the game.

I'm so over the glitched trophies this is getting ridiculous. Not only did my killing all 10 dragons trophy not pop, but my trophy for getting 10 agents hasn't popped and I have about 15. This is getting so dumb.

IF you didn't get the 10 dragons trophy, you'll need to reload a save game before your last dragon kill and kill it again. You should get the trophy then.

Hawke when to Weisshaupt, I think its a perfectly legit reason for him not to stick around. There can only be on protagonist that represents the player so Hawke sticking around would be very awkward.
