If I made a list of my favorite FF heroes and heroines, I think both lists would consist entirely of characters from FFVI and FFXII (and I've played all the games in the numbered series, minus XI).

As for the 25th Anniversary PSN sale, I am considering getting V and VI. I recall hearing that VI is a port of the PSX version of the game, which I heard was terrible. I already own the SNES cart, so that purchase would be fluff. I haven't heard anything about the port of V and whether or not it is decent or not. I sort of feel like I should buy it out of principal, since I played it on that which shall not be named over a decade ago. Not to mention I've never beaten it, and I've beaten just about all the other numbered FFs.

Both are based upon their respective PSX ports. The problem with the PSX port of FFV was that Sony/Squaresoft used the scrapped SuperNES localization instead of actually trying to localize it properly. This means that the game has a poorly edited and quite frankly terrible translation on top of the usual issues that plagued the PSX FF ports (in this case, long load times, since the other issues were mostly unnoticeable due to never getting the Super Famicom version to compare it to). In this case however, if you can't find/don't already have/aren't going to bother hunting down the GBA port then this version is definitely there.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I didn't know there was a GBA port. My DS plays GBA games, I think I'll try that. Thanks.

I've seen FF5A in a lot of shops around here, I'm guessing it isn't hard to find at a fair price, unlike FF6A, which is impossible to find for a good price (and there are quite a few fakes out there, too). Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Wow, sweet! Not much, but at least it's still in development. Digging the updated character models. FFX is a game that would be welcome on my Vita, goofball cast and all.

I've been waiting on this forever, seeing as it is my favorite game and all, so I'll buy this 10x over haha. That's honestly not much new, but any news is better than no news.

Rumor: Final Fantasy X HD to include FFX-2, release in June -- Source: Nova Crystallis

Haha, yeah I don't buy it.  Their 'source' is an anonymous 2ch post.  Also, novacrystallis.com claimed that FF-Reunion had the details, but I went and looked at that site and there were no details of any kind.  Everything in that novacrystallis.com post came from the 2ch post.

Oh, I've got another tip!  Trails in the Sky SC is coming out in English this summer!  Source: Dice.

Nowadays is hard to believe any info regarding SQEX and their RPGs.

I'm pretty sure we're getting XIII-3, XIVmk2, and the next iOS/Browser warez, but beyond that is a total mystery.

Let alone, what they're doing with DQX and the DQVII remake.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Maybe Nintendo takes care of getting those DQ games outside of Japan?

That's not a bad assumption, though I have no basis for saying this.

I really want Square Enix to make an explosive comeback this year and totally bring everyone back into the fold with a glorious return to RPG glory.
