Lmao!!!!

Word Coots, you gonna get FF14 (online version) when it comes out?

Or maybe Final Fantasy Versus 13, which is the same cast as 13, but a different story and it's PS3 exclusive... FF13 is both 360 and PS3

I'm in ....

13 isn't turn based is it?

My favorite type of RPG's is the way Final Fantasy X played... run around the worlds, but when it's enemy fight time, it's turn based... that has always appealed to me for some reaosn.

I'm looking forward to FF13, but I haven't decided which system I will pick it up for yet. I'm leaning toward the 360 even though having it on 1 BluRay on the PS3 would be nice. If it doesn't get enough support on the 360 though, Square Enix will probably keep spending time on PS3 products instead.

360 always seems to be more laggy for me... I'd like to see my awesome cutscenes on a lag free system :)

I haven't had a whole lot of time to play it yet, thanks to many different factors. That being said, I'm not very far into it, but I have to say that running around as Vanille is annoying. I can't stand the way that she prances. Hope is annoying.

Other than that, I'm enjoying it so far. I'm only a couple of hours into it at this point though.

I agree Hope and Vanille make me want to deck them in the face.

Why is there always a whiney little brat in the party??? Leave him out... i dont wanna hear him... he makes me want to shoot the game.

I've finally been able to put some time into this game and I'm really enjoying it. Vanille doesn't annoy me as much any more and Hope has calmed down now too. My party pretty much stays as Lightning, Hope, and Fang. I can cover every role with that trio and be effective.

I LOVE the combat system. Paradigm Shifts are a nice addition. I'm kind of torn by how linear the game is up to this point. Part of me hates that it is linear, yet a part of me likes that I can just stay focused on moving forward. I'm in Chapter 11 now though, so it is open now and not linear any more.

I find myself debating on continuing the story line or working on the side quests. I'll probably do a few of the side quests as I come across them and keep progressing the story. I've read that some of the side quests are tough to do unless you beat the story and then revisit them after the credits.

I'm guessing that everyone here has finished it already. I'm MMO free at the moment, so now I have time for it. :grin:

Cool. I played FFXI online for about 2 months when it was released here, but I just couldn't take it anymore. The interface didn't bug me, but the 7-8 models of mobs did. There was little to no variation in what you fought each day.

I'm kind of burned out on all MMOs at the moment though. However FF14 and Star Wars Old Republic interest me.

So how is it Hypo? I know that there is a NDA, but you can give a thumbs up or poop on Jets to let us know. :)

Also, I picked up FF13 again last night after not touching it for a month. I had just completed Chapter 10 when I last played it. I did 2 of the side missions, then went on to Chapter 11. Holy crap. Chapter 11 is a giant kick in the teeth. I may have to run around and gain more CP to ramp up my stats/skills in the Crystarium.

My main 3 (Lightning, Hope, & Fang) are all at Role Level 3 on their 3 main roles. I'm working Lightning toward Level 4 in Ravager, Hope to Level 4 in Medic and Fang to RL 4 in Commando. That trio is the best that I have found. You can cover every role with them and have many options with your Paradigms.

I finished up Chapter 11 last night. That was the longest and hardest chapter so far. There are several tough fights in it. I started Chapter 12, but I'm not very far into it yet. The story has taken an interesting twist. I'm hoping to finish up the game tomorrow, since I will be off. The wife and kids will be gone and I can have time to focus on the game.

I finally beat the game earlier today. I still have some side missions to finish up later, but I wanted to beat the story mode while it was a challenge. If you complete all of the side missions before finishing the story, you'll be insanely powerful and it won't be much of a challenge.

Anyway, the ending cinematic was pretty cool. As expected, they did a good job on it. I won't spoil it though. I'm glad to have finished it though. I've gotten to the end on a few FF games in the past and didn't finish them off for one reason or another.

I'm going to turn my attention to some other games now, then come back to the side missions.

I feel like if my computer was TOP of the line and I could handle running it better I would have enjoyed it more. I think the concentrated to much on graphics instead of gameplay. They overshot their mark with this one. A VERY generous 6 out of 10.
