I have a question: There was a minigame in X-2 that had something to with doing math or not? I have a memory of a part like that in the game but I can't remember the name of it. Does anyone know?

Yggdrasil: We already have a Tomb Raider thread you yourself made, and while Yoichi Wada resigning IS very relevant to FF it's a big enough deal it merits its own thread. Topics can change naturally, but this is just posting off topic news in the wrong thread.

I just posted that last bit of Tomb Raider because it was somehow directly connected with the news of Yoichi Wada and what not, but I already dropped that whole thing and I'm not gonna post anything about that here.

You are thinking of Sphere Break.

That was it!

I kept trying to remember "the dumb minigame that I suck at because I hate math" in X-2, but since I decided to not buy the HD Remaster (mainly to save the money) I will not have to deal with it again.

I still remember when I got stuck reading the rules for like half an hour. Those were dark times.

Anyways thanks.

Looks like FFX and (probably FFX-2) are getting the live instrumentation treatment, too.

Hot damn, Square knows how to sell me ports.

This being my favorite game, this makes me extremely happy. It sounds so amazing. I can't wait for this game. It might be the first game I ever go through and do all the trophies for.

EDIT: BTW, has anyone seen how good the Final Fantasy V remake looks for the iPhone?! Why they would not release that on the PSN or something is beyond me. I hated how FF1 controlled on the iPhone and didn't touch it after like the first dungeon. I'm seriously considering purchasing it despite this, but would much rather have it on a different system. The screenshots are killing me, though.

Man, do I sympathize with that sentiment! As soon as I saw it I thought/felt that same urge to conquer my aversion to IOS titles.

What frightens me however is the thought that, some day, should they ever give FF6 an over-haul it may suffer the same horrible fate!! The would be the eternal, final, GRAND ULTIMATE kick in the scrotum of all my idealistic gaming hopes... I think I would be unreasonable to the point of boycotting square enix products if that happened.

As far as I can tell, the only brand of Enix's that still lives today is Dragon Quest.... and it lives on like the tumor it is.

I'd kill to see Mischief Makers make a come back, that game was sick.

It's not Enix, but I'd save the tumor analogies for Kingdom Hearts. Have you SEEN how convoluted that's become?

Dragon Quest is more consistent in its quality than practically any series that SQEX has nowadays (outside of whatever they publish from other companies and Eidos Montreal).

Isn't that the N64 game made by Treasure?

Oh shoot, nearly forgot.  Yeah, Treasure made it, Enix just published. 

I'm kinda merging my publishers with my creators, but hey, where would we be without them?

Eus:  I EXPECT KH games to be a storyline train wreck, I'm in it for the gameplay, a fun-ass hack'n'slash in familiar places (with one pretentious final level). :D

Those pictures hardly look any different. All it tells me is how good FFX looked for it's time. I really hope no one is wanting to buy the remake just for the (slightly) improved graphics. I guess the extra content that NA never got is an incentive, but not for me. I never play that extra stuff anyways. The games are way too darn long as it is.
I quite liked FFX when I played it, but will certainly never play it again. Even if I had the time I would prefer a new game over one I already played.
Obviously, a lot of people like re-releases and remakes. Whatever floats your boat. I know I'm wrong, but it always appears to me that working on these types of projects means less new games are being made. I understand there's different teams that work on different games, but I can't help but wonder what else they could be doing. Oh, well.

I'm getting it, but my copy of X was scratched and won't play and my copy of X-2 went missing during renovations. I think it may have ended up in the wall. This is cheaper and has a bit more content then if I just bought the PS2 versions again.

To un untrained eye, maybe (just joshing).  The earlier screen comparisons I think demonstrated the graphic changes better and in...y'know actual HD resolution.  I definitely agree that FFX was really ahead of its time though.

...but man, those low-res models are so flat and ugly compared to the dynamic zoom-in models (you can tell in these: the first Yuna looks sweet and almost sparkly, the other one is flat and dull and the lip movement is just drawn on the model in comparison to the former that actually does the lip-synching).

I couldn't disagree more. Personally, I think if you're saying "they don't look that much better," you haven't played any other HD re-releases. These are leaps and bounds ahead of any other HD collection that got nothing more than a texture filter and HD upscaling. Some of the remodeling and retexturing here is FAR better than the original.

On the other hand, if you don't like ports, that's fair. I like them because portable versions of games I love are ALLLLL-RIIGHT. Plus, Square needs the cash right now, hah.
