    I loved the story of FFTA

    "I have everything I could ever want!"
    "Fuck you, I'm taking it away"

    "Big Brother! Big Brother! I can walk again!"
    "Don't get used to it because I am blowing this fucking fantasy world the hell up"

    FFT is objectively better than FFTA, I understand that

    But what about FFTA2?

    FFTA2 is way better than FFTA, but FFT is still best

    also, more people should have played wild arms xf for the psp.

    I want to go back and play FFXII again

    But currently I have no other TV to play it on other than my shitty 15'' from 1980

    And I cannot find a good converter to connect my ps2 to my 24'' monitor

    YPbPr to DVI is not a popular converter

    I'm guessing the game still has judges, right? Are they less restrictive?

    Oh, and I remember the blue mage class had a skill that took damage from MP rather than HP. Is that still in? Because that shit was BROKEN.

    from what I remember, he's like "awesome! a fantasy world where I can be employed to hurt people and steal things!"

    and the whole "going home" thing isn't addressed that much

    Judges are less restrictive and breaking the rules isn't as big of a deal I think. It's a good game but the story battles get too easy.

    you get a buff chosen at the start of the fight (like double ap, or speed boost) which goes away when you break the law. You also get more stuff at the end of the fight i think. And if you break the law, characters who die cannot be revived for the remaining duration of the fight. This is pretty much better than the stupid law system of the first one.

    As for difficulty, a lot of the cheese builds from the first game are gone. No assassins with a 70% chance to kill instantly who get like 3 turns before everyone moves once, or archers with 95% accuracy due to concentrate, and the game withholds a lot of the really good skill items until the late game.

    Though you can use Seeqs, the ranger class, mirror item, the item boost skill and a x-potion to deal 999 damage every time to any enemy

    Along the same lines lostwords said; Luso is forced to spend the last day of school before summer vacation cleaning up the school's library. On a table there, he finds a book only half-filled, ending with a question asking for a name. Luso decides to be a little smart-ass by writing his name in the book only to get sucked into Ivalice (the real one, a couple of years or so after FF12:RW), right in the middle of a monster hunt between a King-Kong-sized cockatrice and a clan run by a new Cid.

    Despite what people say, there is a plot. Like I've said before in the thread though, while it's not standard FF-epic, the game makes up for it by the rest of the stories you find completing the rest of the quests in the game, more then a few connecting in proper questlines.

    FFTA2's story is not very good. Even if Marshe is a dick, I like FFTA's better.

    Additionally, FFTA2 is balls easy.

    Marshe was not a dick.

    He was just the only guy who wouldn't abide living in a fantasy world.

    That's why I said "even if", I don't really have as much of a problem as a lot of people on the Internet seem to do with him.

    Perhaps that just makes me a dick, though.

    So his friend got picked on and his other friend had white hair and that guy's dad was dying.

    So what

    That's fucking life, assholes, and they wanted to run away from it. Marche was the only one in the group that wasn't a cowering vagina.

    The problem with both FFTAs was that the original was unashamed about being brutally hard and a complete cock at points, while the others were just too easy.

    For the record, the characters in FFTA were not transported into a separate fantasy world. The real world was transformed into Ivalice, and you even see several people turn into monsters.

    So, not really dickish to want to undo that. Pretty damn selfish to say "I don't care if my neighbor is a rock now, at least I'm feeling better."

    I think it's easy to make Marche out like a bad guy considering how some people would like to hang out in a FF-like world. Ok, maybe not FFTA's version of Ivalice and the growing number of Laws, but...
