I'm only in chapter 2 but the dissidia mobile game seems alright. Makes you take a second to consider turn order and enemies targets before you can let loose. I like it.

14 wins all arguments forever yes, but for the current one I would bring in Type 0. Though maybe it's a product of just having a massive cast.

The secret to 12 is that it's fairly easy of grindy. The job system works best imo if you just go with your gut and roll with everything from there.

Min max your low level game. (Don't play low level)

Dragon Quest VIII might be up your alley. Unarmed has some really insane skills and passives in that game.

I keep meaning to do an unarmed play through of that. Maybe I'll use it as an excuse to grab the 3ds version.

Monk in 12 has some synergy with... black mage iirc? Monk has some equipment access that BLM really wants, and it gives your BLM a decent physical backup option.

But again, do whatever sounds good, I did 1 of each job mostly to satiate my own ocd about the subject (I partied MCH with WHM for the record). Was it ideal? Not really, but guns don't care about your armor choices and WHM doesn't really need the healing boost from rods imo. I did kinda miss aoe Cure though, that was the real easy mode.

So uh... I might've just done that to get Ninja Swords 1. Does that mean I'll have to skip one of the later tiers?

Yup. Probably the middle tier one so you can still have access to the super weapons. Daggers + shield is really good imo so I usually just sick with that.

FF 12 would be cooler with more moments like the Vossler boss. That whole bit says a lot about the party it's great.

Actually my dream version of ff 12 would involve giving like a tales or xenoblade treatment and make the party way chattier. Your stuck with these 6 doofuses all game and they go through hell and everywhere in between together, you'd think they'd buddy up after a while. Maybe add an affinity system too that boosts quickening rates or something as your party fights together more.

It maybe I'm just a sucker for teamwork mechanics. It's just weird these guys go all over Ivalice on this mission and don't ever hardly interact.

Yeah, it was invisible. I picked up Excalibur and my party lead was just kinda stuck on an invisible wall when I tried to run forward, so I hit A again and picked up another item, which happened to be the OP shield. The only other invisible chest I've run into (on the deck of an airship) gave me 10 gil.

That chest on the airship has the lol op Seitengrant (sp) bow in it at stupidly low rates.

I like giving mch to a job pair that won't get appreciable physical damage any other way, I gave it to my WHM/MCH Vaan. The darkshot dark robes combo is fun but there are so many better options anyway it's just a fun bonus.

Oh! I kept wanting to mention this for any new 12 HD players: Quickening licences are per character, per board. In short, if you have a character take their 50 LP quickining license on one board, they automatically get the 50 LP quickening license on their other board. BUT! If you have 2 characters with the same job for whatever reason, and one of them claims a quickening license, the other charcter/s with that job can't take that license anymore. So plan ahead!

The game could definitely use some difficulty/re-balancing mods and a re-speccing mod.

EDIT: They already have a mod that replaces Vaan with Reks.

From what I vaguely remember from the strategy guide doesn't Reks have stupid good stats?

I'm really, really glad XV isn't in the XIII universe. I mean XV has its own share of confusing bits in the lore, but it's way more understandable than any of the XIII games.

Very superficially it is, having been Versus XIII at some point. Noct is basically a l'cie doing the will of the gods and what not but that's about where it ends in the product we got. For the best imo.

Howl of the Departed has the FF7 boss theme guitar riff in it and it owns.

If they touched up the graphics, added turbo and sped up the loading I'd totally replay LO in a current system. My main issue was that the game is just plain slow.

I always seem to run into this weird juxtaposed sentiment that Dragon Quarter has a bunch of weird as gently caress mechanics, then turning around to people jumping in that it's one of the best in the series.

The free atb refill every other gauge feels so natural to use that I'm shocked the game never brings attention to it.

The Paradigm animation for first swap of every battle sucks though, Im glad the sequel nixed that.

Basically everytime you let ATB refresh naturally you can Paradigm Shift to get a full bar for free.

It's been forever since I've played 13 so don't take this to heart, but i wanna say every 2 times you let the atb fill normally you can Shift after using up that second refill and you'll automatically have full atb IB the new paradigm for the whole party. Speedruns abuse this with multiple COM stack paradigms to stack damage.

Also if you manual enter commands, you can press down then left i want to say and it will change to let you just repeat your last manual entry.

It kills a whole loving planet in IX. And then it kills the universe so hard you have to beat up the freakin’ Grim Reaper to bring it back.

I love IX.

My real problem with XIII honestly is the parts that are more "Action game" oriented, like the positioning of your dudes, or launch juggling (though i actually like launch, it's fun imo), or one poster above mentioned how the system will alternate abilities for you because that gets a higher chain amount? That's absolutely true, but some characters (Sazh) take for loving ever to actually do the animation to alternate like that, to the point you can actually lose chain if you don't manually tell him to just spam Fire. Its also why Snow is an amazing caster, his spell animation is super fast.

Tldr: FF XIII is silly

Sapozhnik posted:

What would an HD remaster of XIII add? What the game needs is a massive amount of editing to its plot and pacing in order to make some actual sense and have characters that aren't as punchable, and at that point it's not going to be FFXIII any more.

The PC port is fine. It runs at 1080p60, its load times aren't atrocious. Those are the two main improvements you want when going from console to PC. Everything else is bells and whistles.

This was my only question, whether or not it ran at 60 fos.

I will say, having the game on an ssd makes loads nice and quick, way better than on 360

Replaying it, it really feels like they're afraid to just throw the system at you in full, they really want you to play with it in the 2 man parties before opening it fully. Which would be fine, if that 2 man section didn't last so freaking long. As is i'm rushing through somewhat and at the 5 hour mark i'm just starting the second Sazh/Vanille. At least it gives me my preferred weapons for them for free right here.

what is the last story

Tales and FF mixed.

I mean, console jrpgs are certainly rarer today but then you have something like Xenoblade 2 that just knocked it outta the park (imo) so it definitely can be done. But it's also true that Monolith soft are Real Life Wizards because these are the same guys who crammed XBC 1 into the N3DS.
