Would I be hugely flamed if I said I actually liked FF XII better than FF X?

I just got my hands on the International Zodiac Job System version...and all of the text is in Japanese...dur...
Time to look into hex editing now...see if I have any chance whatsoever to make some kind of translation patch...

That re-release pissed me off.  It's cool when they do stuff like add a few new items and an extra boss, I don't really care so much about that, but they revamped the summon system and the license board into something MUCH better.

I still have the nice hardbound version of the Brady Games guide to FFXII, even though I don't have the game anymore.

Holy shit. Dissidia's backstory is way more than it seems, and looks like it ties into FFI in some shocking ways...

It gets crazy and confusing around page 5. HUGE Dissidia spoilers, of course.

I thought we already knew it was going to heavily tie with FFI because of Chaos...>_>

That is incredible, even though I didn't get some of it, I did understand enough to be surprised by it.

It's the way it's done that's surprising. They've given Garland a pretty detailed backstory, for one thing.

Good! I always thought Garland was underused.. But then that game was made back in NES days, so I won't hold it against Square(soft?) for neglecting one of their characters. :D

So in Dissidia, does Garland become Chaos? Or are they two seperate beings?

Well, according to the reports, they are two separate beings, but still related.

By the way, has anyone played the PSP port of Star Ocean: Second Departure yet?

You mean Second Evolution? I was a bit hesitant at first, since in the original TSS I got up to a point where the difficulty jumps and pissed me off hugely. Plus I have yet to finish First Departure... I think I'll buy Second Evolution when it's out here in the UK, rather than just import as I usually do.


I just played as Jecht in Dissidia.





Whoa.

Did I mention the villains get a menacing guitar version of the victory theme?
