    I think for Xenogears, they ran out of money and were forced to go with the heavy story content. I still dug it, thought for how dense the game was it worked fine.

    Suikoden II, Breath of Fire III, Final Fantasy VII, and Xenogears all were wonderful for playstation!!

    The sometimes funny terribad translation of the original is not worth missing out on all the awesome
    Nah. What they need to do is make an actual sequel for it.

    No. It is perfect as a stand alone game. It would not benefit in the least from a sequel

    oh how topical

    I started Persona 3 Portable again today

    on the hardest difficulty on the female storyline.


    Someone shoot me.

    It's not that hard.

    You want pain? Death given corporeal form? Play Raidou Kuzunoha 1 on Devil Mode.

    Enemies: 7x damage dealt
    Raidou: 1/2 damage dealt
    Compendium cost: tripled

    etc.

    I did that for a while, i stopped when i got all trophies... so about 5 playthroughs

    online sucks now though because its all overpowered black phantoms that sousuck themselves to lower levels but keep their great gear, and blue phantom griefers that pull enemies to you

    I was so excited about the FFT remake coming out on the iPad in september but that ended up being a rumor. Now we have no idea when it is supposed to happen.

    I got Demon's Souls for Chrimbus

    I don't do a lot of online kinda stuff but have fought people a couple of times and I figured it would be ridiculously strong people doing broken things but so far it's been pretty even.

    Vagrant Story is a game that needs a sequel.

    But Squenix won't do it because they're concerned about appearing cool to the West like a bunch of balding old men wearing Lady Gaga t-shirts at a Starbucks.

    So instead we get screwed up Final Fantasies and bizarre action oriented properties instead of doing justice to the intersting, original properties that made them the best in the business. And it's not like FFXII was all that long ago. That game was awesome. So, what happened?

    You didn't miss anything in the ending story-wise.

    The game itself is so much fun though.

    I wouldn't mind getting the chance to play the WotL version on another system as I don't have a PSP myself. I'm not exactly thrilled with it's translation though. I get that they probably want to tie it in better with the sort of talk used in FF12, but I dunno. I love the original version of the game. It's one of the few Final Fantasy games I've beaten. Seeing the difference in the translated script, it feels like someone decided to make the game more sophisticated when it didn't really need it.

    it is a pretty fun game!

    other than the bullshit points of no return that make like half of the djinn missable

    and you will almost definitely know the final boss when you get to it, there's still a whole lot of plot threads left open for sequels but there's a definite climax

    how far in are you?

    You'll see them when you get to the 100-120 range. That's the professional battling ground range.

    Did you get the true ending? If so, congratulations. Not many have the willpower for it.


    Also look up Grim Grimoire. Fantastic story, same dev team.

    I liked Odin Sphere (was the true ending really that hard to get, I don't remember having much trouble with it) but the story was anime fanfiction tossed into a blender with Norse mythology

    I need to finish Grim Grimoire one of these days, also I'm surprised that anyone else remembers Vagrant Story, game ruled and the ending was wide open for a sequel

    You have to complete all five story modes, then do the true ending in every possible combination, including the bad endings(which are depressing as hell).
