Which one ya playin'?

271 Replies 3,957 Views Created 28-04-2009

Yo dudes,

 

I figured I'd start a thread in which you can post the FF you're playing at the moment.

 

Lets face it, we're all complete and utter addicts and are constantly revisiting these titles... so - which one are ya playin'?

 

MB's currently on IX. Sorry, I know some feel that it is an epic failure for the series, but I love it.

XII was actually one of my least favourites. I can't really put my finger on why, but I didn't enjoy it as much as say X or XIII.

Yeah not everyone's cup of tea. The battle system is major diffrent but I love it since it's got no random encounters on it and has MMO feel.

I'm not a huge fan of XII either, although I'd rather play it than XIII I guess :p

I'm the opposite XD

 

I loved XIII and XIII-2. I know a lot of people bash them but I really enjoyed myself. And they had my favourite version of Odin since VIII. I hope he makes an appearance in LR.

 

But yeah. I agree that being able to see where the monsters are is pretty cool. It's fairly awesome to stop and look across an area and actually see things moving about on it ^_^

 

((I can't play MMORPGs because my internet is too slow T-T))

I guess I'm one of the moody folks who kinda resents everything they've done with the main series since the PSOne days :p Didn't like Eight. Ten had possibly my favourite combat/leveling system with the sphere grid, but the story & characters... :|

Anyway, I'm playing X-2 on my PS2 :D I have no idea why... It's awful! Perhaps I'm just a pervert ;)

I much prefered X over X-2. I enjoyed playing the game, but it lacked a certain something for me. Again I think it was the frustration of the mini-games. The only one I had problems with in X was Blitzball, which you only had to do once.

 

For me mini-games can help make or break a game like these. Fighting monsters is cool and all, but sometimes you just want to kick back and do something else for half an hour. If the only options presented to you drive you up the wall it would be better if they weren't there, leaving you only with an endless slog of fighting.

 

That's one of the reasons I liked XIII-2 so much. Once I figured out how to do the rift puzzles I had a lot of fun doing them and got a real sense of achievement when I beat them. Even if they did take forever for me to do (looking at you Hands of Time), due to my own stupidity :)

I probably took so long to beat them because it took a while for it to dawn on me that the hands moved according to the number you stood on. After that I resorted to pausing the game, copying down the numbers and working the puzzle out in my notebook.

 

I'm not the quickest of thinkers lol.

I found a amazing online app that solves the puzzle for you. Well it dosen't grab the controller and do it, you type in the numbers and it shows you what order to do it.

I found that too. After I beat the game XD

 

In a way I'm quite glad I found it too late. I only cheat at puzzles if I really have to and I proved to myself I could handle Hands of Time.

My lord, why on earth did I put myself through that? Playing FFI to cleanse my soul :p Am I the only one who has lost interest in the X/X-2 remakes?

I'm mostly interested in the FFX remake, although maybe if money is good I'll be able to get FFX-2 at a later date.

 

Back to playing FF6. I discovered the vanish/doom trick. Kinda nifty ^_^

They'll be on one disc as a PS3 Blu-ray.

 

They'll be separate for the Vita because they just won't both fit on one game card!

 

I'd like to bet they'll be available separately as downloadable titles on PS3 (as well as Vita).

I don't mind getting them separately. As I said, I'm only really interested in FFX to begin with. Might only go for FFX-2 after price drops lol.

 

I just hope there aren't too many trophies for blitzball D:

I've just started up what will probably be a long running thing. Playing through all my ***** in the original order I first played them in rather than playing them in numbered order. 2 hours into FF7 atm, the controls feel really clunky since I cant use the sticks only dpad... :(
