THE Final Fantasy

Except for that creepy pedo-zoo-necrophilia princess Elise and her lust for hedgehog speed >_<
(Playing Silver is awesome)
But-uh, Final Fantasy, yes.
Don't read one of my posts in the thread 'VIDEO GAMES'. I expressed much of my dislike for 13 there (including the ending)

1. Favorite: Final Fantasy IX
2. Emotional Impact: Don't remember (I'm cold and soul-less like that)
3. First: Final Fantasy III (the one that came out in the U.S. on the Nintendo DS)
4. Currently Playing: None, as I'm sorting my way through BioWare RPGs at the moment, but I hope to soon get Final Fantasy VII

Spoiler for VII: All the characters are bosnian adolescents. Even Red XIII. Don't let his appearance of awesomeness fool you, he's secretly just as young and stupid as the rest of them. It's revealed further in.

Favorite - X, because...
Emotional Impact - X. It has to do with the circumstances under which I played it. I'm too lazy and too tired to explain, though.
Playing Now - None. Eagerly awaiting Versus and XV.

That was the most horrid of any of them I have played.
- 24 February 2011 - 07:43 PM
Also, two words: Sphere Grid. Hands down one of the best leveling systems I've ever seen in an RPG.

I still don't understand why destroying sin destroyed Dream Zanarkand though. And fuck if I can explain how Tidus came back in FF10-2 (that game was a pile of shit anyways).
Wait what? I played the game but just what?
Throught the whole game sin keeps using gravity powers in the cutsceans so the time travle thing just makes sence to me.
Ok, if auron and tidus were from a dream land then they should not have been called back there. Even if they still somehow had to go back, like they clearly did, the dream world couldn't have been destroyed becasue tidus wakes up in the water at the very end and swims up to the surface.
Why where the towns of zanarkand and bravil at war?
I guess it makes sence that a messed up summoning happened while they were making more powerful spells for war.
So I have two questions. Why do you think tidus was from a dream world and where the hell did he wake up at at the very end of the game?

Figured I'd go ahead since it sucks majorly on an emulator, and I'll be headed up to the mountains soon, and barely any of my family have wireless internet.

So far, my main party is Squall (100), Cloud (100), Sephiroth (100), Tidus (96), and Lightning (91)
TL;DR I'm kicking ass at DDFF.

As for the mission, I never had any real problem until around 20 or so. Make sure your crystarium is as complete as you can get it (There's a good place to farm CP, where the Behemoth and Lobo are fighting, in the Archelyte Steppe)
IMO, although it took me a while to wrap my head around it, Lightning/Sazh/Vanille or Fang/Sazh/Vanille are very good parties, with the following Paradigms set up:
If Lightning is in the party:
Commando/Synergist/Medic [This one should be default]
Sentinel/Syn/Med [If Fang is in party]
Let Sazh get Haste and and Protect/Shell etc up first, then keep swapping between Com/Rav/Rav and any Paradigm with a Medic. Tip: You can go Com/Rav/Rav and then hit the Paradigm shift button after you hit autobattle, and it'll still show your HP to the right, good if you need to swap to a healing Paradigm quickly. You can also do Med/Syn/Sab if you're good at healing, that way Fang/Vanille can Slow them too.
Also, you can always beat the game, then go back to Gran Pulse and do the missions after you get Stage 10 Crystarium unlocked (For missions 30+ this is almost required)
Final tip: You can change the battle speed itself if you feel overwhelmed, in the options.
EDIT: twobrothersandasister.com is down That was a very awesome site for some FFXIII mission guides. Anyways: http://www.gamesrada...031011391394090
Also, I just remembered I have the Strategy Guide for XIII... so, yeah, I'll check that in a bit if you still have trouble.

Funny thing is, I usually main Cloud, but I think I'm going to start using Cloud on all the manikins, but Squall for bosses/players now. I could only get Feral Chaos down to 85K with Cloud, but after I got Squall set up for EX mode, I one-shot the remaining 85K HP. He wasn't really that hard, I think regular Chaos on the original Dissidia was harder to learn the patterns. That could be just me having played it for a while though.
So yeah I've pretty much beat all of DDFF... which is weird cause I never even finished Inward Chaos on the first one.
Also, it's stupid easy to level characters up now, just kill a bunch of lv 120-130 manikins for about 100K XP each time. And with the new party system, that's about 70K to everybody else in your party.

I still like the game, but it was awfully linear and dumbed down a bit, I felt like.
I don't agree with EVERYTHING the strip said, but the part about 'take a long walk down a hallway for 40 hours' is certainly true, until you get to Gran Pulse.
I actually hated the hell out of the game until I got to Gran Pulse.

Actually, given the evidence I've seen, this hypothesis may actually hold water!

it also had the biggest emotional impact. Why? the Music! They all have great music but FF9 was the best in my opinion!
Every now and then Jesters Of The Nightless Moon gets stuck in my head!
Nobuo Uematsu is the best in his line of work!
I have played the first two Final Fantasy games, FF8, FF10 and FF10 part2.
But the last FF game i've played was FF9, recently this year.
There, i've answered all the questions, though to tell the truth, I just wanted to rant on about the awesome music.
I don't plan on posting here again though.

Just putting that out there.
This guy I can agree with.
- 27 July 2011 - 11:26 PM
The best music seems to be concentrated in VII-X (One Winged Angel, Liberi Fatali, Dark Messenger, To Zanarkand – just to name one from each)

However, judging by Lackluster's post:
It seems that he'd prefer me to bump this rather specific thread than clutter the other one, as this post will pertain exclusively to Final Fantasy.
IF I AM MISTAKEN, THEN I APOLOGIZE.
So, I recently got a PS2, since I missed out on the entire PS2 generation. I haven't gotten terribly far in it, but so far my main gripe with it is: Wow. They sure are pushing Luna and Tidus together QUICK aren't they? I mean, I'm at the point where they're planning to attack Sin using the trapped Sin fragments or w/e, and I feel that they've really rushed the YunaXTidus. I'm not against the idea, just thought they'd flesh it out more (gonna compare it to FF8, which imo did the romance bit fairly well)
Also, I fuckin' hate Blitzball. Whoever said it was great needs to be beaten with a stick.
I've also picked up XII but I think it'll be a while till I get to it. I've also picked up XIII-2 but, again, haven't had much time to play it. At the very least, the first few hours of XIII-2 are an improvement over the first few hours of XIII.

Along with in the game the whole "Fayth and Pyreflies" made no sense to me, if they are supposed to be the souls of the dead leaving monsters you kill...why do they fly out of machines? Speaking of dieing, has anyone noticed that pretty much all major plot point characters that have died just seem to walk it off? I guess in the world of Spira death is just a small obstacle you go through and come out normal the next day. Seriously, theres Auron. The only character that I enjoy cause being dead only seemed to piss him right the fuck off. Then Seymour, the character with a costume and hair style that results in weeping hilarity. And like...half of the council thing of all of Spira? This plot wasen't predictable...just predictably written terribly.
Theres a lot of shit I hated with 10. Haha, but when it came to the combat that was fun. But Blitzball was...just retarded. In so many ways. Speaking of Blitzball, what makes a good weapon guys? A sword? A Buster Blade? A magical staff? Fuck no! A Blitzball!...A...Blitzball.....*facepalm*
