@Dezzy
I don’t disagree with that. I like Final Fantasy XIII. And I don’t think FFX-2 is a bad game. But it’s a bad mainline FF game. Had it been a spin off like World of FF, it would probably be even more well received than that game was.

But it’s no exaggeration to say the game has been universally panned. It really has been. Almost anyone you ask who knows the series will tell you the same. It doesn’t mean it’s a downright horrible game but it does mean it’s been panned across the board. For obvious reasons mentioned previously.

Final Fantasy XIII games were initially panned, but recently have fallen into favor with more people, as many realize the games are actually fantastic. That never happened with X-2.

I’m not trying to discourage anyone from playing it. I think everyone should give it a try and come to their own conclusions. It’s all about the mindset you go into it with. If you play that game expecting a sequel on the level of Final Fantasy X, get ready for disappointment. If you play that game expecting a spinoff to Final Fantasy X, I think you’ll find there’s a lot to like.

I can confirm this is deeply untrue as Titus is one of the worst, most punchable protagonists I've ever had the misfortune to deal with (at least in something universally well regarded and story focused), and almost the entire reason I never had much interest in going back to X.

Hmm...Thanks! As a FF newbie, I'll keep this in mind. I think having a non-spoiler idea of how things will be is why I think I liked Bravely Default more than some.

The fact that he has the same name as the developer of Superman 64 sums it up.

Does any one know if 7 and 9 will be remasters and have extra content? I'm asking because i'm trying to find print guides for these games and was wondering if the old guides would work. And also does anybody have an opinion on witch strategy guide is best for 9.

@CurryPowderKeg79 I have the Bradygames guide for 9 (got it at a garage sale with the game) and it sucks so much it's hilarious.

It gives a very basic overview of the game, with deep strategies such as "To defeat this boss, hit it with attacks, and heal when you get low on health". Anything more complicated, such as an actual strategy or how to get any secret items, required you to go to a (now defunct) website and type in a different code for each page.

I can't imagine why you'd want a guide for FF9 anyway. The game is pretty much designed to be as simple as possible and not require a guide (the game's instruction manual practically flat out says this).

So basicly @ReaderRagfihs your saying that it's not like 13 where theirs noway id of beat it without a strategy guide when it came to bosses, but that was a Prima guide(RIP).

@ReaderRagfihs: Out of curiosity, have you checked to see if that website is available via Internet Archive's Wayback Machine? Probably not if it's really obscure, but you never know.

@Blitzenexx I did. The site is archived, but requires a registration/login to access. Dunno if that's even possible anymore.

Definitely not extra content. They lost most of the original code and scene files for the PS1 games, so the most they can do is tweak various small issues.
The original strategy guides will be fine.

@CurryPowderKeg79 The Final Fantasy IX strategy guide was legendarily bad even at the time. It came out just as the Internet was starting to become ubiquitous, and at points in the strategy guide it legit just tells you to go look it up online. Like multiple times. I've got it at home somewhere. It's amazing.

I forgot about that. It was that PlayOnline thing wasn't it? I'd thought that was FF10 but you're right it was FF9.

I had a cool guide for FF9 that came free with a magazine. Still got it at my parents house somewhere.

@Dezzy Yeah it was PlayOnline. The Internet was just starting to be a thing that everyone was getting involved in and they were trying to push their site. So the FFIX guide is hilariously awful as a result.

@JaxonH X-2 has never been popular, but it also hasn't inspired the same level of hatred and split the fan community the way XIII did. It's easily the most hated modern FF game by a large margin.

Square deciding on XB1 backwards compatibility over PS4/XB1/Switch remasters for XIII was odd.

It's not like those two are mutually exclusive.

Yeah I don’t know either.
