And some of the key Type-0 folks, and Type-0 is awesome.

Plot-wise too?

For an FF with a militaristic story with fantasy elements is fairly elaborate, not too hard to follow and satisfying in its own terms. Type-0 also has two endings and the script was written by Hiroki Chiba.

Personally I really like the opening sequence Type-0 has. Is different from what you see in other games in the series and it sets the tone very well.

Holy shit I should not have watched that intro, it makes me even more pissed off that we didn't get this game. That was fantastic! Grittiest stuff I've ever seen from the series and the music is great. Damn you localization team.

So I got sick of getting 0-3 seconds in the chocobo race and can't get it under 0 for some reason so I went and tried some other sidequests. Went to go get Anima to realize I missed one of the destruction spheres somehow so I tried remembering and I think it was ironically the very first one in Besaid Island. So I go there to unlock it to find out Dark Valefor attacks you as soon as you walk into the island and it destroys me... seriously this is so dumb. I can't get Anima unless I go train for hours on end and do the arena stuff and have ridiculous stats, which means I can't get Magus Sisters because you have to have Anima...ugh. I've played for 40 hours and DO NOT want to restart.

Sounds like Zanmato time.

Yeah I could do that I guess. The chances are slim but it probably wouldnt take as long as grinding would.

You guys are making me want to re-play FFX soooo bad...and I have such a ridiculous backlog of games, lol

Give in and join the fun!

I haven't played this game in forever (since i beat it after 60 hours last year). If I put it back in and start playing will I get all these cool items you guys are always talking about or do I have to play on the days you guys post?

Unfortunately, you do have to visit the Barracks on the day of to get the goodies (and I've had at least one instance of opening the game up, visiting the Barracks, and failing to activate the event before the clock cycled over and thus missing out on the loot of the day). But honestly, I wouldn't make a big deal out of it. The goodies just consist of an Event Tiles' worth of Exp, an Event Tile item, and a +4 temp boost to two stats (and no, the Barracks stat boosts do not stack with other Barracks stat boosts that character might acquire between stages).

I'm just posting these things because I'm bored, and because I don't particularly feel like flailing around in today's unforgiving job market right now.

Thanks for the info bud! I'll continue ignoring the game then haha.

I come across The Spectacular Now at work all the time and almost check it out everytime, but then I remember I have too many movies at home already and I'll never get to it. Definitely moving it up the priority list a little though. I like me some Shailene Woodley.

Jena Malone I like too. That elevator scene in Catching Fire... lucky bastards lol.

Decided to just finish up the story in FFX so I can do sidequests without feeling guilty. I still destroyed the final bosses in like a few hits... but I made up for it in my teen years when I sucked at games. I had only the 5 original Aeons and none of the celestial weapons and it took me like 20 tries to beat Braska's Final Aeon so this is sweet revenge for my misery back then haha. I absolutely love the ending to this game. Hits you right in the gut multiple times with the Jecht & Tidus relationship and the Yuna & Tidus relationship. I thought it was awesome that Jecht and Tidus high five when he joins them all. I totally forgot about that. I understand why Tidus resents and loves his father because I have a similar relationship to my father (which I why I think I crown this my favorite of the series). My dad was around, but he never wanted to do anything with me (mom and dad were divorced when I was 3) and I had to beg him to take me for weekends and then he wouldn't show up. As much as I don't have a relationship with him (we barely talk at all and we live in the same town and I am ALWAYS the one who has to contact him, he never even tries) I don't hate him and hope that he doesn't hate me for not trying when it always ends up going nowhere. Sorry for going deep on ya guys haha.

@Dice: I totally agree about the underwater breathing thing. Only part about this game that really nags out me. I just assume they all have gills hidden under that fantastic hair.

Finished peace walker yday. Today I found out about the existence of a true ending which led me into a state of unbelievable rage and despair. HOW COULD HAVE I MISSED IT.(I didnt really fall into despair but I like dramatizing the situation). I didnt think much of the game storywise, the ending I got was good and all but the actual story was kind of bland and uneventful until I saw that fucking true ending on youtube that blew my mind. Also I wathced ground zeroes on youtube, I wish I hadnt because I would have preferred to play it.. 30 dollar demo or not.. I was really satisfied with what I saw storywise, a big cocktease but awesome. And also if you make the stupid mistake of skipping peace walker you wont know wtf is going on in MGS 5 so don't do that.

Damnit now I have to play Peacewalker because I want to play MGS5. Did it come in the Legacy Collection for PS3 last year? I bought that for later use and don't remember if it came with it or not. I hope so.

Really wish I knew Japanese or Square would localize Type-0. It looks awesome.

Final Fantasy X

= I love the gradual build up to the sort-of war sequence from Mi'gen to Mushroom rock.   Well done!  It felt realistic!  Till afterwards where you're like "Well fuck, that backfired....let's carry on with the original plan then!"
= No beef at all with new OST when it's combined with the "sounds and fury" of the in-game haps.  Besaid going somber kinda sucks, but eh.  I'm cool with it. :)
...now, if it was a Kingdom Hearts HD type of redone OST, then WOO, that'd have been nice.  Shimomura is wonderful and nailed her second go at KH1.
= Whoever the people are in charge of enemy movements and animating is aaamazing.  I've always loved the way the turtle-type enemy goes limp when you kill it...and the Flan monster that just ooze out.
= Eugh.  I'm gonna do some backtracking.  Apparently you can go right back to Besaid still and I wanna get some Blitz players
= I feel this game could be a million times better if the script wasn't so lousy.  The lore and world itself are wonderful.  The characters and "acting" are just all sorts of awkward... 
= You go Tidus.... You swim after the giant whale-sized Sin.  Good luck with that...you twat.
= Not to keep nit-picking, but if Seymour got rid of those fucking pigtails, he'd actually be a pretty cool looking character.  WTF ARE THOSE SPIKES THOUGH!?  HOW?!  WHY?!?!  DO THEY PROVIDE HBO?!  I BET THEY DO.

The more I play this game the more I dig the new OST. Some spots aren't as good, like Besaid which you mentioned, but others are fantastic. I've made significant progress since I last posted yesterday. Beat the chocobo race and completely powered up the Caladbolg. I got 15 ballons, 1 bird, and 35.9 seconds which was way under the required 0.00 finally! As annoying as that race it, nothing is quite as satisfying as finally beating something like that. I felt like a god for awhile :) I also beat the cactuar minigame in the desert and completely powered up Rikku's Godhand. Now I'm working on powering up Auron's. You have to get every enemy from 10 spots and I have all of them from 9. After that I need to find some items that break the HP limit because I'm already sitting at 9999 and have activate multiple HP sphere's past that. Training is so easy now. Went into the Omega Ruins and got the final Al Bhed Primer and got the nice gold trophy for it. Not sure what to do next, maybe blitzball for Wakka or dodging 200 bolts.

It has to be less than 0.00

I got 36.0 seconds with 13 balloons and 1 bird... which is exactly 0. FML
Unless they changed it, 0.00 worked for me on the PS2.

They had to of changed it because I looked in my inventory after realizing it didn't say I got it and it is not there. I'm so salty. It took me forever to get a good enough run to get 0.00 and i needed .001 less than I got to get the sigil.

Ugh I hate the chocobo race you have to get 0:00 on to get Tidus' weapon. I played if for 2 hours last night and I got 3 seconds like four times and even got 1 second with 12 balloons and 0 birds and thought I had it. I wanted to throw my Vita into the wall. This shit is just too luck based. My one complaint from this game really...

I figured if my ten year younger self could do it, I could do it again a bit older and wiser.

...I'm still gonna hate it.  I don't think I even bothered starting the quests till I got No Encounters though...

Yeah my 15 year old self did it so there was no way I was quitting until I beat it haha. I don't remember where to get the no encounters weapon though.

Edit: I just realized I got EXACTLY 0.00 so I didn't get the sigil. ARE YOU KIDDING ME
75  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: March 27, 2014, 11:07:31 AM
Hell yes just finished with a 0.00! Now to get the sigil...
