Title: Final Fantasy Fever
Post by: PhantomBPR on August 19, 2006, 03:07:26 PM
I decided to replay FFX for the hundreth time. It just seems to get better and better everytime I play it. I just haven't been able to find a good RPG since FFX, but that aside, I've been freaking crazy about FFX lately, I've even spent my free time in school day dreaming about teaching a class on "Ancient Spirian Studies". I even wrote a short essay about the crusaders in my english class, perhaps I am befalling to the dreaded "fandom"........nah, I'm too cool for that!  :wink:

7 had so much more to work with than 3/6 though... like, if they would've just saved the 3/6 story and characters and music for a playstation game ratherthan a SNES game and a remade playstation game, then it would be the best game in the history of games (well... it already is the best game in the history of games, but whatever). :P

LOL, yeah, FF7 is and always will be my number one favorite game. Not much I would add or take away from it (maybe a few more sidequests and bosses). Anyway Final Fantasy X was definatley one of the most unique games of the FF series (In my opinion.)

Unique... yes... but it was a little too "unique" for FF for me. Still an alright game and awesome graphics and the voice acting was a definite plus, but the battle system was blah (however, that was something they improved on in FFX-2 which, IMO, has the best battle system of any FF game). Anyways, the sphere grid was cool and new, but.... i dunno... i missed good ol leveling.  :P

Gotta agree with you there, nothing compares to good old leveling up. Although FFX2 was a big let down for me. It just seemed to be lacking something the first one had. It was too much sidequest, and not enough main plot. It's been a while since I've played through FFX2, but after I beat FFX again, I might return to FFX2, after all, who in their right mind could resit those scantly clad sphere hunters?  :twisted: (Seriously who? No one, that's who)

I don't know why everyone disagrees with me on FF being a girly/gay game series.

Yeah... honestly, FFX-2 was just one big side quest... I hated all the freedom that it gave the player. Like, some freedom is nice... deciding the outcome of the entire game sucks. I like to follow a story.

And I can resist their slutty clothes. I'm cool like that. :P

I just walked from Macalania, all the way back toward Besaid. This is right before Yuna confronts Seymour about the assasination of Jescal. Furthermore, Yuna and Seymour about to wed, and if you happen to walk along the Mushroom Rock Road, you'll come upon a Guado woman guarding the road who will say: "What in Spira are you doing here? Maester Seymour expects you in Macalania." This one asspect shows you how indepth the programers went, to change the dialoge for every character after every event, even characters they don't expect you to be meeting with :!:

That was probably to make up for the fact that there was no world map and they needed you to advance the story.

FF1: teh pwnsomeness! My all-time favorite. I love Garland.
FF2: Never played it.
FF3: Never played it.
FF4: That's the one that was 2 in the states, right? Good, but I wish I didn't have to redeem Cecil.
FF5: Never played it.
FF6: Soooo Overrated. This marks the series' downfall IMO, with all the steampunk.
FF7: Ewwww. I am never touching anything to do with that overmerchindiced garbage.
FF8: Meh. It's getting out of the steampunk ages, so that's a plus.
FF9: Garland returns! All right! But the rest isn't so good.
FF10: We are finally back to high fantasy, but I am not fond of the chars.
FF12: Never played it.
CC: GET OFF MY BACK MOG! IF YOU CAN'T CARRY THE STUPID CHALICE DON'T ASK FOR IT!
Tactics: Never played it.
TA: Didn't get very far.

I never played FF6, but I know a lot about it, and it isn't my style. "Steampunk" is the term for mixing magic and technology in a fantasy setting. FF6-FF8 are examples.
Title: Final Fantasy Fever
Post by: The Purple Parrot on October 06, 2006, 08:25:18 AM
Yes, there are some forms of magic and tech crosses (like magitek armors) and things like that, but it has little to do with the game itself.

I'm just gonna say that you shouldn't knock it if you haven't played it. The characters are especially strong (some have way more story than others, obviously) and you'll learn to love most or all of them. I know I do. Aside from the characters, the story is just so engaging. It draws you in early on and it doesn't leave you hangin. It unfolds marvelously. I will agree with most critics that the beginning half of the game is MUCH stronger and more clearly structured than the second half of the game, but the freedom to come and go as you please (or until you feel that you are strong enough to take on the opposition) at the end of the game is really a nice touch, in my opinion.

I seriously could go on and on about that game. You really don't know what you're missing.  :P

Well, I just recently started up a new game of FF7, my all time favorite. I know most of you here aren't big into FF7, but I know I sure am. Meh, much else to say at this point. Cloud just told us about his past, we're trying to get a chocobo to chase Sepiroth across the marsh.

FF7 is also amazing. I was trying to start a new file in like November, but my disc 1 is soooooooo scratched that it won't start. :cry:  FF7 was probably the first game I ever got for Playstation... I wish I would have taken better care of it. :cry:  I can still play my good file on disc 3 though. :D

Anyways, I just started a new file on FF3/6 yesterday because my old one got deleted (The game deleted it itself... no idea why that happens, butit happened a few times).

FF7 is the only one of the series I've played.  It's a pretty good game, but I have never been able to figure out just where the heck the vincint sidequest is.  I've heard about it, but I don't know where it is, or when to go there.

Same here, FF7's the only one I've played. (I have FF8 too, but I can't get it too work.) I like it but I completely froze up when we got to that first village after leaving Midgar.

He's in the basement of the mansion in Niblehiem. You need the key to the basement door which is hidden in the safe on the second floor. The combination is scatered in clues across the house but you could just look it up on GameFAQs. Once opened, you'll have to fight a boss, after killing him you'll get the key and be able to release Vincent.

I know how to get him, I mean the sidequest that involves him.  Think it had to do with someone named Lucrecia.

OOOH. Indeed. It involved a secret cave that you had to get to using the submarine and the undersea tunnles, took me a few trys to find it.

Post by: AdvanceStratagist on February 10, 2007, 05:51:57 PM
oh THAT'S why I couldn't find it.  I hated having to be underwater.  That stupid emerald thing always managed to run into me for some reason, and then I'd die and start over.  I'll have to try to find that now.

Is there a particular deadline at all to it, or can you do it right up until you decide to go in the crater after sephiroth?

I'm pretty sure you can go visit the cave anytime you wish. The only thing is, I think that if you visit it once in disc 2, and then again in disc 3 (in that order) that's the only way to get Vincent's Final Weapon and Final Limit, but I could be wrong. Either way, no matter when you visit, you'll learn more about Vincent's past and get a secret movie, which if you ask me, is good all on it's own.

OMG, i was wondering who was marginfucking and then i scroll down to see a giant picture of Olmec for an avy.... wow.


Anyways, I played FF3/6 a lot yesterday. I cleared the Operahouse <3 and the Magitek Research Facility <333 and now I have to go to the Sealed Cave to get the Espers to help in the battle against the Empire... of course, anyone who has played this game knows that that's not what's gonna happen...  :P

Don't worry. Big ass Olmec will be going soon, he's just here for the weekend to show everyone how big an avatar can be.

Back on topic: I'm trying to get all my character's highest limit breaks early on in the game. But this calls for alot of training on certain character's part, and I'm just not comfortable with Yuffie being at level 27 while Barret is at level 25.

As far as I know, they can be used to preform the "toy soldier" attack that Cait Sith does in his slot limit break.
