@Switchcraft I think it's a rights thing. X has never been available with JP language outside of the JP version.

With X-2 I suspect there's a rights issue with the opening music and subsequently Lenne's VA being a celebrity hire under contract with Sony/BMG in Japan and different licensing with Sony Music Japan and UMG (now Vivendi) who was/is the artist's label outside Japan. But I've never known why they restricted X as well. I don't believe there's any music rights or anything with it.

@JaxonH I tend to level up everyone equally in RPGs so that's not a problem. I noticed Kimahri's start point was in the middle of everyone so I opened the lock to the right since no one's on that path yet. Now that I think about it, Rikku is probably going to be on that route. She is kind of a thief, right?

The sphere grid is probably my favorite part of the game right now. You are constantly getting new stuff. I'm taking the obvious paths but I can see it being really fun to try out different combinations on multiple playthroughs.

Is there a way to see what each of the skills do before unlocking them? I don't think the game tells you those, unless I just haven't pressed the correct button, which is likely. I know most of them from other Final Fantasy games and RPGs but there are some I've never heard of.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

Okay did anyone, I mean ANYONE see Seymour in FFX and NOT immediately think "Yup, he's a bad guy." ???

I mean I haven't even seen him do anything particularly evil yet where I am, but his design and personality just positively SCREAMS "I'm gonna be your enemy in the end!"

Seymour was like Mother Gothel (Rapunzel) in some ways.

I still say the sphere grids look like an evil, evil subway map. I never really liked that layout.

@Heavyarms55 Yeah, I thought that was kind of shoddy storytelling to just paint the villain posing to not be a villain as a hulking, sinister, manipulative figure who talks like a stereotypical evil villain from the first line. I'd be fine with it if he were the stated enemy from early on like Vayne in FFXII. Though Vayne has pretenses of not being evil, it's very clear from the onset you're supposed to be aware he's a conqueror and villain since you first encounter him behind closed doors doing his thing before you see his "friendly" public persona. With Seymour it feels like they wanted to to go through a Xenoblade-like unexpected plot twist moment with him, except they club you over the head with him being villainous from the very start, while hoping you don't notice. Even though even his Aeon is the most evil-looking thing imaginable. Syemour being a cardboard villain, despite some backstory complexity, I think hurts FFX in my mind, though it's redeemed by not really being a story about "good vs evil" at all...other than Seymour (which the game could mostly have done entirely without, IMO) the real villains, are fate, time, and circumstances with no truly evil or good characters (except Seymour, but he's unnecessary), which IMO was a fantastic theme....albeit...it would have been better without cardboard Seymour with chaotic evil laughter on-cue the whole time. He's a bit-player but the suits probably deiced the game needed a proper villain rather than ethereal conceptual "enemies" like "fate", "time", "circumstance", and "closure." If you just mute the Syemour parts, it's very somber tale, both on the surface and behind it. Seymour at least saves it from feeling hopeless and depressing

In a sense the whole story, mood, and feel of FFX feels like a celebration of funerals, on multiple different levels. Though it often kills my interest in revisiting it, but also explains why they wanted to give it a bi-polar series and turn the sequel in to "OK, we're pop stars now, YAY!"

Yeah he looks like Sephiroth mixed with Lady Gaga. Never a good sign.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Haven't made that much progress since last time but I just suddenly remembered one thing I haven't thought about for over 10 years. I know one of the summons in advance, Yojimbo. My friend talked about him a lot since he really liked his one hit KO move that could apparently kill bosses too. I do remember him saying it cost money though so maybe he isn't quite as overpowered as he made it sound. I guess I'll see when I get him which I imagine won't be for a while.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, I think I drew him as well and gave the drawing to my friend. Fun memories. It's a shame we haven't been in touch for years.

Tips for upgrading Yojimbo.
Don't upgrade his MP since he uses his Sword skills based on money you paid and his affection with Yuna.

In HD Remastered version (Also on PS2 PAL, International version) Anima is the Strongest Aeon in FF X.
She can does damage = 16 x 99,999 = 1,599,984 from her Oblivion (Anima's Overdrive)
16 times of 99,999 damages was from 14 times of Quick punches, 1 time of Magical Blast, 1 time of Falling damage.

I've heard people say that Seymour's voice (The English one at least) makes him sound like Winnie the Pooh @Heavyarms55 .

Not sure I entirely get that but he is a touch more ineffective as a villain after that comparison regardless 😅

Did you know one thing about Seymour's dark secret ?

He can summon Anima, the strongest Aeon in FF X, that was actually.... from his mother, has been sacrified as Anima's Fayth.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy That's funny! I looked it up just to make sure it actually wasn't Winnie the Pooh's voice. Jim Cummings does a lot of video game voices, and has been the voice of Pooh since the 80's...but no....Seymour, shockingly isn't actually him!

Seymour just wants a smackerel of delicious hunny

Can't remember where I read it @NEStalgia , but it's always stuck with me as I never got why they thought that cus he doesn't sound like him at all really aside from having a softish tone of voice... but yeah... can't really take him seriously anymore 😂


And whatever suits you @Anti-Matter , enjoy them on switch!

I love Seymour, just because he seems like he thinks he's the Big Bad and acts like it, when in reality he's little more than a nuisance to the party. Like "yeah yeah Seymour whatever get out of the way so we can continue the pilgrimage"

Nothing jumped out as villainous when Seymore’s summon was a demon in bondage chains called “Pain”

Like hmmm... this doesn’t look like the normal pretty birds of Yuna
