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.

I guess I could take a look at what quest is actually the main quest (does it say?) but I haven't looked at the quests. I find myself running around exploring. And that is not a bad thing, but I could get on with the main story a bit more and come back and explore later.

Yes, your quest menu lists main story mission in its own section as well as companion missions in another. Its well organized.

Considering some of my favorite games this year and last year came from Square, I don't agree surg anyone hoping they fail. I also don't understand why you would ever hope for something to fail, especially when lots of people enjoy their games. That's a level of cynicism beyond me. Also, I agree sub everything Din and Ygg said.

More Dragon Age and Dragon Quest.  Juuust outside of Gotha/Granvania in DQ V, and juuuust finished the Hushed Whispers quest in Redcliffe in Inquisition.  Dorian just joined and... I think I might try and have a gay romance with him?  Maybe?  Would be a first for me in BioWare games, heh.

One thing I wished FF8's plot had expanded on was
Rinoa's past with Seifer.  It's mentioned almost off the cuff that she dated him, then Squall had a hissy fit for no good reason and stormed out of the room, forever leaving that thread dangling.

Even though I really liked FF8, I would have liked more plot regarding the "school ties" and "teen beat" stuff than that contrived Blair Witch hunt.  For a game that's supposedly about the theme of love, it handled that theme rather lackadaisically.

As for gaming, mostly been playing Love Live School Idol Festival.

 I am kind of with Alisha but I don't want to see any of their titles do well, I want some unknown company to come by and just crush them till they can't afford to survive anymore.

  They feel like so much of a poser company to me who brainwashes people into buying their games and then half those people will say they liked it regardless of if they did or not. Its kind of like how a bunch of poor people follow Republicans even though their whole goal is to kill off poor people and take more money for themselves. Not saying Democrats are any better in this day and age as they are probably all out to kill us also lol. But I feel how people look at games and if they are good/bad is the same mentality of how people are with politics.

 If I look back on what Square has done for me with their last FF installments I can see they basically just completely clone some type of game and then put their own skins on it with a most of the time horrible story full of characters who make me cringe just from looking at them. So am I excited for any of their games no probably not but that doesn't mean I wont look into them when they are coming out cause anyone can change or strike upon a good idea if they actually have the interest of their consumers in mind and not just their money on mind.

To be fair, I think Selphie and Irving actually did SOMETHING after disc 1.

... Now I wonder if everyone was supposed to die at the missile base in some earlier version of the script because that's pretty much the exact point where Quistis especially ceases to exist as a character.

 Its been more then a few years since squaresoft internally combusted and really it isn't all their fault as much as people just really were not into rpgs back then compared to other genres. It makes me sad to say it since I never liked that game but World of Warcraft and other MMO's is what brought a lot people into RPG genre plus being able to buy the stuff digitally lets more companies survive today.

 I really don't like the word Nostalgia I decided, maybe if I was talking about how fun it was playing with ninja turtle action figures when I was a kid and we should play with more action figures now or something lol. But saying thinking about those old games is nostalgia is about as dumb as saying you shouldn't ever take advice/find out about great minds of the past as it has nothing to do with the present. A lot of Great minds transcend time its proven over and over again that people of the past predicted almost exactly where we would be now.

 If we would of had "Nostalgia" for our Founding Fathers in America who warned us of all the problems that are happening right now maybe we wouldn't be in such a mess! I feel the same about games if you look to the past you will find all the answers to all the problems we are having now with a lot of games. I will never say we should make games exactly like we did back then but there is a lot to be learned from them of just small things they did that made their games that much more appealing.

But such polarizing opinions are exactly why this game will succeed.  We've given it good publicity in our community and many of us will play it so we can talk, argue, etc. about it.  It's arguable that FF9 may be the best FF since 7, but it's kinda the forgotten FF.  It was good and did everything right, but it didn't spark the level of debate that 7,8,10,11,12,13, and 14 did. 

If 15 is good, we'll have people saying "told ya so" or "I was wrong to hate on it, it's good!" If not, we'll hear "told ya so" or "I was wrong to fellate it, this is awful." And we'll have those talking about how the game didn't live up to the hype, good or bad. 

The game is far from out, and it's already spawned one of the most popular threads on the forums this year.  FF is doing its job.

Like the new Zelda costume and Dominion Rod is an interesting choice. I had seen speculation that it could be a weapon for Zelda so not too surprised. Betting there will be some reference to her armor form from one of the portable games(forgot what game that was).

The Postman Costume? Really!? Couldn't even go for something like the Magic Armor or Zora's Tunic, let alone anything from TP!?!

At least I called the Dominion Rod (and I'm glad it went to Zelda, since while the joke that Link's arsenal allows him to counterbalance his own harem is amusing in a *nudge nudge* *wink wink* sort of way, its definitely more preferable to be able to spend time elsewhere).

Also, what I wouldn't give to see Ganondorf hijack Kingdom Hearts. Especially now that he has the Keyblades for it.
The Zora Tunic and Goron Tunic are already in game.
