Holy Bananapants!

Just seen a trailer for Versus, with english text! No sound I'm afraid, but it looks fantastic.

I also want to know who the girl with the BFS is.

FFX-2 is one of those polarizing games. You either love it or really hate it. I for one love it.

It's very fun (to me, anyway) but very, very different from X.

-X is super linear, 2 is like the complete opposite of linear. It has a plot and you can choose to simply follow it, but there is also the whole great world of Spira to explore that has a ton of sidequests and development for minor characters and there's mini-games and all sorts of stuff.

-2 has completion percentages for different endings. 100% is tricky to get but it has a different, extended ending. There is at least one more ("bad" ending) and I think a 4th, but I'm not sure. Even if you don't get the full 100, the ending is pretty good.

-2 goes back to a regular leveling system and has the Dresspheres. Basically, I'm floored by the creativity and pure fun of this thing. With X, you equip weapons, armor, use the sphere grid to increase stats and learn abilities, but in 2 you just equip a dressphere, which functions like a class in FF games, and it gives you your weapon, outfit, changes stats, abilities, and you also learn new abilities for your dressphere through a point system. This has been called fanservice because some of those outfits are...fanservice, basically, but I love them. (Thief, Lady Luck, like at least half the DS in general?)

-X has turn-based battles, but 2 uses a real-time based system and it's kinda hectic at first but you get used to it. A timer bar under your HP and stuff fills and when it does you pick your action. For Attack it's immediate and your timer just starts again, but for spells and some abilities there's a second timer, which shortens as you go along, after which you can immediately pick another action.

-X has Tidus narrating and 2 just gives it to Yuna, with a lot more introspection. With Tidus it's mostly commenting on the pilgrimage and the occasional bit on his father or Zanarkand, but with Yuna it's a lot more self-centered. 2 is about Yuna after her pilgrimage, how she goes on another adventure with Rikku and a new girl Paine, and a lot of the commentary is about how Spira is changing, how she's growing and moving on and finding a new place now that she's not a summoner. (Yeah, no more summoner, so no Aeons in 2.) If you find Tidus annoying, you probably won't like Yuna any better, but I never had a problem with him and was really surprised to hear a lot of people say "OMG HE'S SO ANNOYING SHUT UP STUPID".

-2 keeps the 3-person-party and I guess gives you a little more flexibility in how you set your party up. In X if you want a Black Mage you have to have Lulu in your party (Luuuu <3), but in 2 with the dresspheres you can make anyone a BM and there are a lot of ds to collect and use.

I feel like there's more but I'm forgetting. Look up some gameplay vids to see if you think you'd like it.

The battle system in X-2 never bothered me. My first game in the series was VIII, which had the ATB system. I was really confused at first because all RPG I had played up until then were turn based, but once I got the hang of it I really enjoyed it.

So y'all prefer ATB? I like my regular turn-based games because I have time to think about what moves I want to use, and I have time to reference an enemy's weakness, and cast the most efficient spells/abilities to get through the battle virtually unscathed. That's just my two cents on it~ ^^

Heh. I luuurvvee Tidus. <3 He's mega-cute. In both ways and looks. And he reminds he strongly of one of my RP characters with his blonde hair and attitude. Which is why his name is Copen. xd.png WotwotIthinkIhaveacrushonagamecharacteragain-

I love the idea of exploring Spira! So, kind of like Zelda in a way? As in, you can break away from the plot and do other stuff? X3

I think I'll be buying the game. xd.png This is the first time I've played games like this, so luckily I'm not stuck in my ways when it comes to the fighting and leveling and stuffs. Just a bit confused at first. xd.png

Y'know, I kind of hated the game after the first half an hour or so. But then the storyline really began. X3 I was honestly not really wanting to play - it was so different!

So, uh, I am at the Al Bhed city, after the desert. Just seen the ultra cute/sad scene where he finds out what the Final Aeon means. D'awwwww. Scenes are so cute and emotional they make me want to cry. :c Don't tell me what is coming up next! I like surprises. :3

I'm fine with either method of combat. ATB does seem to make the battle flow better though and it seems more realistic than having half your team standing around while getting nommed by monsters.

Okay, I'm pretty into KH which got me a bit interested in Final Fantasy. So, knowing absolutely nothing of it other than a few select characters, I bought two games from gamestop. III and IV. Are these somewhat okay for a beginner? :3

FF IX is my favourite. It had the best world-building and awesome characters. It's strangely underrated in real life but slightly overrated in most Final Fantasy forums. Then it's probably FF VII second and FF X third.

X-2 had the best gameplay in the whole series (in my opinion, anyway) but the characterization was... different. The multiple endings were pretty cute though and the bad, bad ending where everything gets destroyed (I think?) was a surprise to get.

I liked XIII-2 so much more than XIII. Something about XIII's linearity bothered me in a way that X's linearity never did.

I almost can't stand XIII-2. I liked the gameplay, but I've decided to consider it non-canon.

Now that I have worked out how to get internet on my PS3, I may download FFV and FFVI from the PSN network. I just need the money.

Reading up on the Lightning DLC I can see a strong possibility for FFXIII-3. I just hope we get to play as Lightning this time, as she is still my favourite character from that Universe.

Sup Final Boss dude. Kevna right?

FFX, best one ever in my opinion. Especially since Auron was such a kick@$$ dude. You couldn't handle his raw power.

My Top 5 Final Fantasies are:
1. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (excellent gameplay, great music, and tear-jerking ending)
2. Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 (excellent music, wonderful characters, awesome villain in XIII-2, beautiful graphics, and a shocking ending in XIII-2)
3. Final Fantasy IX (excellent story; wonderful characters, especially with the Steiner hating on Zidane moments, which were pretty funny IMO; great gameplay)
4. Final Fantasy IV (nice drama and story, great gameplay)
5. Final Fantasy VII (great characters, awesome villain, great funny moments)

I'd put FFX on the list, but I thought Crisis Core deserved a place up there since I really like the game. Anyway, I can't wait to get Theatrhythm in July and hear about FFX's release date for the Vita. Also, some of you might call me crazy or whatever, but I'd rather have FFXIII-3 released sooner than FFversusXIII. That's because I want to see what happens after... you know what? I'm not going to spoil it for you guys.

Having a cliffhanger doesn't make it good. FFXIII-2's ending would've been a lot better even if it ended as Noel and Serah disappeared into the Time Gate leading to the future. I would also rather have Versus, because I disliked a lot about XIII-2 and I also want Kingdom Hearts 3, which will not be starting development until after Versus is completed.
