    hooray! I haven't jurpged in what feels like years but this just feels so good

    right up until I leave Lissa or Miriel open and they die in two hits and then I reset the game and try again because while I know there's a casual mode I'd rather restart the fight until I get it right, dammit

    also Frederick is a goddamn beast and it feels like cheating when I just park him in a choke point like the rocks of the eternal shore, and then watch enemies crash upon him and be broken

    also also I know some people get super particular about which characters get paired off with each other to get the best bonuses or whatever but I am just watching their conversations and I want to see how things play out if I don't deliberately interfere

    If memory serves, the time from announcement to release for other FF ports was pretty short.

    The trailer just says 'soon,' but at the very end it gives the copyright dates for FF9 and one of them is "2016." So hopefully sometime in 2016?

    Take away Fred's weapon and stop him from stealing exp from everyone! Or make him the secondary partner in a pairing for mad gains.

    Real glad that FF9 thing is happening. Game definitely needed some under the hood work.

    Now give me up rezzed FF8.

    I was upset that FF3 was the only Nintendo-era FF to not get a GBA port, but then they released the DS version and it was okay. I'm glad they did that even though I ultimately decided that game is bullshit.

    The best part about FF3 is getting to experience the Crystal Tower and World of Darkness in a better game, FF14.

    You could say the same thing about several other games.

    Lightning Returns.

    At least one Dragon Quest.

    Final Fantasy XI.

    It is wholly, completely, unabashedly possible that we will get the FFX/X-2 combo pack on Steam

    And if that happens, it opens the door for 12 in its enhanced, up-rezzed, optionally IZJS form

    Oh man that's an exciting idea

    I like it as the last of the prerendered backgrounds era of ff and the last jrpg I played that did that in general
    I miss that style deeply

    Heck, release 'em all on PC. Let as many people as possible play as many FF's as they care to.

    It's a really, really good game that I've never beaten because something new always comes out every time I get about 2/3 of the way through it.

    (But really this describes almost every game ever for me. I need to make a backlog list and force myself to play the shit out of all those games one at a time until I beat all of them.)

    I give no shots about 10. Give 12 and the best protagonist, Balthier. Asche and Basch accompanying.

    Matching up personalities is 100% the right way to do it

    I know you don't really need advice, but

    Maribelle is beast mode if you eventually swap her class over into an offensive magical school. She's scary as Hell as a mage

    I'm not sure what makes a song anime. except the opening to RF3, that's probably it because it is literal jpop with a music video

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWucMVGZEyA

    you know, I can't figure out how they kept losing money on those games

    Did the rune factory games lose money? That's surprising to me.

    that doesn't necessarily mean the games lost money, they might have just not been profitable enough, or some other reason unrelated to sales.

    That 2/3rds point is super slow and boring, so a lot of people drop off there in FF9
