Final Fantasy XIII

Post  Adminassassin on Wed Apr 14, 2010 12:16 am

Just as it sounds. I cannot stress how important it is to use spoiler tags. Thanks.

I just won a used copy on eBay for around $37 and plan to start it April 30th, AKA the day my first year of college wraps up.
I hope to beat almost all my other Now Playing games so I can just play XIII all night long. Smile

Have fun~

I spoiled the whole thing for myself by watching most of the playthrough on YouTube. I'm still planing on picking it up, but I'm waiting for a price drop first (I think the only FFs I bought at full price were V for GBA, III & IV for DS, and FFTA2. The last two: IV and TA2, were only bought at full price because I was working at the time and I have money to spend xD ).

edit: by working, I mean, full time job. xD

i've only heard negative reviews about XIII... one of which even said that it was the last JRPG he'll be playing for a long time. Sad

Well it is Final Fantasy

I was really unimpressed when I picked it up at midnight on 3/9/10.

So much that I put it down for a whole month for a game that I had beaten over and over again. (Mass Effect 2)

Now that I have gone back to it, I can't put it down. I love it. I'm on chapter 7 out of... who knows? xD

If you like Final Fantasy, or JRPGs, you need to at least rent it. :3

yeah me too, which is why I watched a playthrough just to see how bad it really was. Some of what the reviews said was right on the dot (i.e. no towns really does suck), other times I thought they were exaggerating (i.e. story being boring).

All in all, I say it's definitely not the best/ really good RPG, and the direction of the story went the wrong way and they really missed creating a darker and more interesting story, but I still thought it looked like a lot of fun and the character's stories make up for a few hiccups in the main story. So basically I'm holding off now for a price drop because 50 is too much for it IMO, but around 30 is the price I'm willing to pay.

FF IX and IV. lol. I don't really get why they can't call XI and IV FF Online 1 and 2. Rolling Eyes

I played through it. It's fun enough. It was extremely linear for the most part. I beat it but was intending to beat all the missions at some point. :[ Got bored, because I bought SoulSilver.

I started it yesterday.

I can't stop saying it, but seriously, it's like everything I ever wanted in an JRPG so far.

Seriously, what's the deal with FFXIII? I've tried it, it's nothing like IV or IX. I didn't like it, I thought it was average.

(oh great, get ready for flame)

Why would it be like IV or IX specifically?

Lol, because IV+IX=XIII...?

Anyway, I'll post my thoughts on it once I get a chance to sit down and invest a good chunk of time into it.

Well I can't speak for or against that, having only played a little of IV and none of IX.

My favorite is X, followed by FFI (GBA.)
I disliked XII though. Razz

I just want VI to come out on VC and I'm all set.

I still would like to give this game a try.

I won't criticize a game till I've played.

thank you donth, VI is the best FF. It has the best music of all FFs (probably only rivaled by this one), an unusual villain, a varied group of heroes, a revolutionary story direction for its time
Spoiler:
how many games actually have the end of the world, the ending was also pretty sad and I heard that the developers were going to make Terra disappear but decided that would be too heart wrenching. I'm on the fence about that, I think having Terra disappear would have really made the game revolutionary, but I could see lots of people not appreciating a good somber tale, so I think they did make the right choice there.
, great character building for key characters, etc.

I'm shocked that people don't like this game. :/

I like FFIV as well, but I thought FFIV really out shined it in many ways....just my opinion. (Yes I'm a total FFVI fangirl tongue )

@Soar: I'm really liking them all so far. I can see what you mean about Lightning, but I actually think the older voice fits her character. :3
