Hey Cone, haven't talked with you lately.
Have you been gaming more lately? XP
How have you been?
Yeah, I knew there should be a lot of stuff happening but I hoped it was good ol' gaming taking you some sweet time hahaha.
Still loving your avatar xD
Thanks as well! :) I really enjoyed FFIX (needed more Beatrix!) and with XII on the go, nearly at the end of my quest to play them. Not sure if I'll do XIII again but if I can get XII done before XV, that would be great!
Don't even try Yazmat if you aren't up for like 4 hours straight of fighting it xP, but the guild hunts are really nice.
Have you been liking it? I love the art style if that game, the judges sre so cool, the espers and summoning attavks as well, and there is Fran!
It's a lot of fun. I actually played it as a kid, my Dad didn't really like it so I had free reign over it which was strange. It holds up better than I was expecting though which is very pleasant indeed. Just finished the Henne Mines and need to do the rest of the forest. Worth going to the Feywood and getting slaughtered? Let's see!
Perhaps this may interest you:
I remember talking to you about Chronicles a lot. Well, I recently finished the main story of Chronicles X. I'm assuming you've beaten it by now and was curious for your thoughts.
Overall the story is OK but weaker than you'd come to expect. Also because of the requirements to start each mission the pacing is off. For me the highlight is Chapter 5 where you find the Ma-Non and discover you're a robot. The story doesn't get back there IMO.
I like the idea of the Skell, and I do have fun with it, but a lot of the game gets kinda broken with the Skells, and there's a lot less variety of what you can do in combat with the Skell.
Finally, I hate what they did with the party system and affinity. It makes trying to do everything you can before you beat the game a goddamn chore. Because you always need to have your avatar in the party, it makes keeping everyone at relatively the same level a pain in the ass. I know you can grind enemies at around your level to level weaker party members, but that;s a pain because of how many damn party members there are. Also annoying is that because of the number of party members, the overwhelming majority of them are completely useless to the plot.
I wholly enjoy the game, but I honestly think the original is just better constructed in a lot of ways

Play the game would be my advice. You get to see the locations in more detail and the story is hardly groundbreaking. Then again, if you're unfamiliar with the story and want a bit of background then you may as well see the movie first. I don't think in this case doing one in front of the other will have a massive effect. ...
I can't say I'm surprised by these scores. Don't think anyone was seriously expecting a cinematic masterpiece and looking at some of the cutscenes from the game they feel almost robotic... Sometimes funny but not lively. Which is strange because the original title had an awful lot more soul and emotional attachment in the story and that wasn't a movie adaptation! ...
