He needs to learn his place. He's a kid with stupid clothes and a boomerang -_-
Lol because he's the only character from the craze that is Final Fantasy to wear strange clothing and fight with even stranger weapons =P
Yeah, i actually googled it myself and read that. Would explain the change, as i noticed it juft after i changed his weapon, but i didn't think of that.
I've barely fought with Snow so I didn't even notice.
That's the one.
P Well, that balances things for your week days off, right ;)
Ohhh, i'm in this foresty area with Sazh and Vanille and there's a really nice song. I think it's the same melody from the title screen.
Yeah they need to have songs for certain characters which fits the mood I think. It's nice to play as Sazh or as Snow and get different music. Sazh having a more laidback, playful sound and Snow having a more geared up battle kind.
I hope we can stop talking about Hope, because all this talk of hopeless Hope is making ME hopeless. Well, as hopeless as Hope is impossible.
Fine, let's stop talking about Hope. I hope you're happy.
Even with that information i think that once i can freely choose my battle team, he will not be on it >:)
Pfft, I look forward to hearing your team >:(
Actually to be honest, i've been completing all the crystal grids for everyones roles so far. And i haven't even been doing unnecessary battles to get more CP. I think that will change soon however.
Oh yes does it change :( I've got like 20,000 odd CP points for most of my guys each to use but I'm hesitating right now as each new crystal spot is like 2000-4000 atm, and I'm not sure what direction I want to put them in :3 Plus the other roles are unlocked for the characters, so if you want to train them to be something else you can, but the CP on those is beyond harsh.
Oh yeah. Does going up a role level actually do anything? When you finally get the role crystal and turn level 2 commando for example, are there any benefits for that or is it just to say you're now level 2?
You get role bonuses. If you look on the 'Status' part for each character it should tell you the role bonuses they have, which come into affect when the character is using that certain role.

I played the first hour of FFXIII, and I'm pretty happy with it so far. The battle system is fast and exciting, the character design isn't as ridiculous as it was in FFXII, the voice acting is good (but who wasn't expecting that?), the graphics are amazing, and that chocobo appearing out of the guy's hair was hilarious.
Yeah it's all good :)
Something else I'm enjoying is how they have different 'moves' in battle, and by this I mean like when you get Sazh as a Commando and just get him to attack, he will aim his guns in a different position, think he has like 4 different poses just for attacking which is great fun to watch.
There was a bit a problem in that the battle system seemed to play itself, since I didn't feel any need to press anything other than 'auto-battle' over and over. But I think that will probably change when more elements and moves get added in.
Yeah it certainly does. Sure you ain't like in control like you used to be, but as battles get harder and your HP goes down quicker which it will, you will need to shift Paradigms about to heal, to give status boosts, then back to try and get the chain surge fuller quicker. It's a different kind of battle experience, but good still.
I hope it can keep up the high standard it's set in the opening. Obviously I don't expect it to be this action packed all the way through, but I'm hoping it will stay as fun.
It's very much action packed with a full twists here and there. Need more giggles though D:

You kidding? FFIX is one of my favourite FF games being just behind FFVI and VII. The game has brilliant characters, epic soundtrack, great plot and some fun sidequests. I could understand why others don't like it but personally, I find it to be so damn good! Infact, it's so good I bought this game TWICE!

I wouldn't agree. I think the game is one of the best FFs.

Make that 4 who think FFIX was awesome. Sorry Gags :/
You guys are bullys!
No it didn't suck, but I also just felt nothing for it as I was playing it. I found the characters (besides Steiner and Vivi) to be all fucking annoying and Zidane has got to be the worst leading man the FF series has had. He will always look like Meg Ryan with a tail. And no that has nothing to do with that Spoony saying Tidus looks like Meg Ryan, I thought this since I got FFIX. I don't mind cutesy stuff, but there is a limit, and the main character needs something more.
I guess the first problem was that when I bought it the first time, the disc was actually fucked, so I played the game for like 5-6 hours then it got to this certain cutscene and it just died, the whole thing wouldn't get past this point. I tried to fix the disc but to no avail so left it, then a few months later I painstakingly tried again. Why didn't I just get a new disc? I was young and foolish.
Anyway eventually I did get a new disc for the game and when I got past the cutscene that wouldn't load on my first disc, it was kind of anticlimatic from there on. It was like my goal had become to get past that section and I did and everything else for the game felt boring. :3
So yeah in terms of the recent FF games, from VII onwards, my order of perference is probably;
VII > XII > X > VIII > XI
I know a lot of you didn't enjoy XII much but I loved it personally. They should have kept Basch as the main character. I read they were afraid of having an older character as the lead. Yeah because Vaan was better right..?
