Now I want a PS3 even more!

To Shortmonkey: The collab is going really slowly and we've taken a break until I get my drawing tablet. Care to join.

To Pyro: You forgot about the goal scoring contest me and you are having?

To anybody who has FFXII: OK I got past the Barheim passage and I've talked to Dalan. Now I can't be bothered to look around for Balthier. Where is he at?

To BlackFlame: What about Basch? I accidently skipped a cutscene or two...

You know how lots of the PS3 ID tags are already going, does everyone have there own ID lined up? We have one for each member of the family, best not to post them or they might get taken.

If you've already got Basch in your party after doing that little request thing for Dalan, then you'll find Balthier and Fran at the Sandsea (the tavern in Rabanastre) waiting for you.

You guys should say SPOILERS in bold so that users who don't have FF12 like Odyssic don't know the hole game.

Thanks but I figured that out when I went to play without reading your post. I should have known that from the beggining. So now I'm at the mines, pretty hard considering I don't have many spells. I'm at the part where I have to fight that lizard like guy with his three cronies. However, I had to go before Igot to fight them. When I get back there again, do you recommend I fight them or run away like the OPS2 FF guide said?

Now About Final Fantasy 13 I made a little Info gathering on it and Here's what I have on it and Final Fantasy Versus 13 (This Post can also be found in gamefaqs in the Final Fantasy 13 forum Where I Originally posted it) :

Firstly :D
Here are the trailers for the games:

Final Fantasy XIII
http://www.ff-xiii.net/index.php?page=ffxiii_
trailers

FFVersus XIII
http://www.ff-xiii.net/index.php?page=versus_
trailers

And here are some more Links on battle systems:

Final Fantasy XIII
http://ps3.ign.com/articles/769/769653p1.html

If you are too lazy to read it here’s a summary of some stuff that was written:
The battle system is still considered an ATB system, complete with time flowing by as you input commands. However, the actual means of input has changed a bit and, according to Tsuchida, will now allow for more control options. You'll be able to, for example, select between carrying out a simple slash, or charging and then slashing. Some characters will be able to combine magic with standard attacks. And all of this is somehow connected to a new animation system that will blend individual motions to result in a single smooth motion.

Final Fantasy XIII's battle system may share a few points in common with the Final Fantasy XII system. Rather than a standard encounter-based system where battle begins with the allies and enemies in a face off, Tsuchida suggested that FFXIII's battles will begin with the player noting, "Oh, here's an enemy." Players will have a new way of getting into fights with enemies.

Outside of your main party characters, Tsuchida wants to make the enemies that you encounter in battle more wholly connected to the main game. Scenario and battle should be more closely connected, he feels, and so the enemies will change based on the conditions of the scenario. As an example, he mentioned players moving through an area that's being searched by the army. You'll end up encountering the appropriate type of enemy for this situation, and may even get shot at.

FFVersus XIII
http://ps3.ign.com/articles/769/769776p1.html

If you are too lazy to read it here’s a summary of some stuff that was written:
On second thought go read it I’m not gonna wipe your nose for you >.>
_____________________________________________
________________________

Here’s some more info mainly on the differences on the games.

- FFXIII is a fast-paced ATB rpg, while Versus is a Kingdom Hearts-esque action rpg.

- The director for FFXIII is Toriyama. The director for Versus is Nomura. Both games have development teams that consist of people who worked on FFVII, FFVIII, FFX, and KH2.

- Both games are for the PS3. FFXIII should be out sometime next year. Versus will probably end up being released in 2009.

- There is another 'Fabula Nova Crystallis' game, called Final Fantasy Agito XIII. Its for cellphones, and will probably only be released in Japan, but again, Versus and Agito don't really affect XIII, so don't worry about missing plot points or whatever.

Also as known to us yet the protagonists of the games in FFXIII It’s a girl who is called Lightning.
For Versus It’s a guy and well I’m not sure what’s he’s called yet if anyone knows do tell :s.

Now also There is a Final Fantasy for Mobile Cellphones called Final Fantasy Agito XIII.
Now Agito means in latin “to engage in motion” probably means playing it on the cellphone or something go figure.

The setting is also different

FFXIII is set between a high-tech world (Cocoon) and a wild world (Pulse) where the protagonist is chosen to do something with the world (destory? whatever? not very clear yet)

In Versus XIII, the protagonist is of Royal blood, the last in line in the throne to protect the crystals. The buildings are modern (some taken from Japanese suburbs etc.) and may account for FFAC style battles (w00t)!

Versus and FFXIII are part of a compilation, similar to FFVII. They share nothing in common. Different characters, different story, different world, and even different visual design. The only "bond" the two games share is that both have a story that relevant to crystals. Both will be on the Playstation 3.

a good website for information on the games.

Some more info on the games:

Final Fantasy XIII

The FFXIII battle system is a completely new type of system designed to be fast paced. The new system is being developed by Toshiro Tsuchida, the battle director of FFX. There are no random encounters in the game but a field full of enemies similar to FFXII. The monsters also change according to the situation or environment. According to Tsuchida the FFXII License board had too much freedom and in FFXIII he sets out to design a system giving characters abilities based on their personalities. The summons are also supposed to work as partners (like the two Shiva sisters) so we could see more summons with brothers or sisters.

Final Fantasy Versus XIII

Nomura said that he doesn't want to begin work on Kingdom Hearts 3 until he has finished Versus so he can concentrate on one at a time. This also may be the last FF spin off game Nomura makes so he can work on other titles. The game itself is set to be like a Third Person Shooter similar to Dirge of Cerberus..

Final Fantasy Agito XIII

Currently the script for Agito is being written which is supposed to be an amazing story. The game will be released in a similar way to Before Crisis in an episodic format with one episode being released a month. It has to be released like this because of the huge scale of the game.

source- www.finalfantasyversusxiii.net

Final Fantasy XIII Article

- The battle system is discussed. The designer of the battle system will be the same person/team who design the battle system of Final Fantasy X. (A personal favorite :P) It looks like FF13's system wont resemble FFXII.

- Development is discussed. They seem to be pretty happy with the white engine and it looks like they are planning to use it again after FF13.

- A new "flying airborne assault" technique will be introduced.

- Kingdom Hearts 3's production will not be started until FFVersus13 is released (Sucks I know).

- Surroundings which resemble real life places in Japan are discussed and it mentions how hard the team worked to add them into the game.

- The battle system is still being compared to that of Kingdom Hearts

- Once the gun weapon is collected you will aim shoot and use it in the similar way to Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII.

Now just so you Know I didn’t write all of this stuff I just found it or copied what other people wrote so too you people I say thank you :D you know who you are :>, and I just wanted to gather it all up and put it into one big post so that people can read this one instead of looking for 10 pages to find the info that’s written here.

That’s all really hope it answered your questions about the new Final Fantasy Releases, ty for reading :).

Well That's it really I am looking forward to These 2 awesome games so much really on the PS3 ^_^.

She's not of a bad nature really m8 besides I don't really use sexy beam silly ability when you can use a multi Blizzard spell on all enemies at once :), anywhoo what I like allot about Dragon Quest 8 is the fact it's a solid RPG Title that looks oldschool yet remains fresh with cool new ideas, like Monster team battles and very cool Alchemy pot system that gets you some awesome items :).
If you got some spare time like 4 hours a day or so to play the PS2 buy this game now (or get a friend who finished it to lend it to you), You will not regret It I assure you it is a really really good game if you get into it :>.
