I played FFI on the PSP. Decided to do things a little differently and went Black Belt/Thief/Red Mage/White Mage. I made it through the game well enough but probably not the best idea for a first and only play through as it gets annoying that like half the loot you find is specifically for the fighter.

Hell yes. I just remember my offense of Tidus/Blappa/Brother, with Nimrook in net it didn't matter who the two defenders were.

Downloaded this the other night. I was actually going to post it here soon.

Absolutely fantastic read. If you've even only played 1 of the games in the series it's worth it.

I would rank it 2nd. The prizes you got from it weren't all that good and it was way too easy. You could basically score at will with Jecht Shot.

Triple Triad cards, on the other hand, could be refined into some really good stuff and the minigame itself could be very challenging even with all the best cards at your disposal.

Man that's just brutal

The character selection I was talking about was to mix things up, not to make the game extremely difficult. Personally I'm not really into gamer masochism

Where would you all rank the games in terms of music? The music was a huge part of the game for me and I'm such a nerd that I listen to it regularly (in game form as well as covers lol)

I think it goes like this: VII, X, IX, VIII are tops for me. VII is just an all around great soundtrack as well as X. IX features probably my favorite song, Trance Kuja's theme.

Answer to best FF soundtrack is VI of course!
XI is really close though, so many great tunes and ones like Zitah caused people to go to very obscure, put of the way zones just to idle and listen to the music..the entire FFXI score really is incredible

I got an interesting theory and it got helped from just reading around a little bit about Final Fantasy Versus XIII. They are probably still developing it... yet sadly for the past 7 years. Anyways, maybe a reason for no true news about it because it might be an exclusive for the PS4? And saying that, new news about it would mean it might confirm the existence of the PS4?

I can't believe they are making two more games in the XIII universe.

As Jesse Cox said: "Just make FF15 you freaking psychopaths!!!"

I can't properly judge it yet as I haven't played it due to a lack of a PS3/360, though I do plan on getting around to it sometime, but reading a summary of the story it sounds like something where they're trying just way to hard to the point it ends up sucking.

The reason FF Versus still isn't finished and FFXV still isn't announced is because EVERYONE at SE, except for a small team working on Lightning Returns (which already has art, game engine, etc) is working on FFXIV. That's how badly and how important FFXIV is to SE, everything else is delayed until 14 is out the door.

That reasoning makes sense too, because if XIV bombs, there won't be a SE anymore..lol

They ARE developing versus XIII. In fact, Square Enix has weekly meetings about the game, and they have been doing that for quite some time now. The reason for the game being so delayed, is becuse the developers have been working on other titels. Not to mention that Nomura himself, has also worked on many other titels inbetween. Versus is one of the projects which have been feeling the effects of this.

This might be nothing, but it is enough for us suckers to get our hopes up:

I found it on clearance at The Source for $10. So just keep your eye open.

It's not that it's the sub fees. A game has to be orgasmic levels of good before i'll even consider subs.

SE isn't planning on millions of people playing, just around 500k, which they will easily get IMHO. Once there, the game will be pay to play and be the second most profitable FF of all time in no time, even with all the money sunk into it. (FFXI is the most profitable FF ever)

Too many MMO fans compare everything to WoW and if XIV doesn't pull in WoWs millions some people will call it a failure, when that was never the goal. They are going after exXi and XIV 1.0 subs and if they get more than that, they just consider it bonus. That is a huge difference between FFXIV and SWTOR, RIFT and TERA, all who tried to ride the WoW wave.

XI is possibly the greatest FF of all time story wise, so I have no doubt XIV will be worth it. As long as they keep making the game amazing and remember XI, I'll be happy.

Which is why I believe Guild Wars 1 and 2 succeeded so well compared to others, because they give you so much of the game (with the core game), make it F2P, but it has no pay-to-win elements whatsoever. Not only that, they come out with expansions every 6 to 12 months, make it last longer, adds a **** ton of content and still doesn't require a paid subscription. Outside of WoW (I feel), the paid subscription fee in this day and age is really not the way to go. Look how many higher end MMOs that have come out (TOR, Tera, Secret World, D&DO, LOTRO, etc.) and they all started with P2P and now are all (or already have gone to) F2P because they can't sustain themselves as such.
