It's so weird that the first two games are suddenly hard to find.

They never ported them to steam, the psp versions aren't available digitally (in America), and the 3ds remake of the first never made it out of Japan.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Maybe they're planning a new version of 1 (30th anniversary. Why not, eh?) and 2 (if you're gonna revise a leveling system... ).

They did release a demo of a web version of 1. It was in Japanese, so Google Translate.... well, it makes it infinitely more entertaining. (also, it has Tyro from FF Record Keeper as a playable “class“).

Oh wow the US doesn't have something that we have in Europe?

The PSP versions are available on the Vita store for me.

The US store only has the psone version of I & II, the psp ones were never added.

So, who here has played any of the Dissidia games? I'm currently trying out the Open Beta for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, and...it's a bit overwhelming, to be honest. It kind of plays like Gundam Versus, but not really? I definitely gotta put some time into each character, I think, since even basic combos so far have been tricky to pull off.

I'm also reminded why no one plays the 3v3 matches in Gundam Versus - making sure you're locked onto the right opponent at the right time is tricky. I'm not just talking control-wise here, either. Mentally keeping track of 3 fast-moving targets while trying to make snap judgments, as well as coordinating with the two other members of your team, fighting over summoning crystals(?) whenever they appear so you can use summons faster and get that edge, all while wrestling with controls that demand timing and precision, at least from what I've played so far.....oy vey...I might be in over my head, here...

@CanisWolfred

I played a fair bit of the first and it's prequel-expansion, but the new Tecmo game is considerably different from what I've heard. Nevermind that they were strictly 1v1.

EDIT: I actually could go for a Switch port of 012 and/ or NT.

I played a bit of the second game, but my psp died shortly after, and I don't have enough space on my Vita to consider downloading it. (It was an umd).

Finally got round to doing the Pitioss dungeon in FFXV.

My, that was awesome stuff. They need to bring that sorta thing into the main story more often.

For anyone who didn't do it or hasn't played it, it's basically a Zelda dungeon in FFXV. Something you don't find in any other Final Fantasy really. Really good one too.

Zelda dungeons don't make one endure 3D platforming hell. And Link's jumping mechanics are actually built for action/ adventure. Noctis' are built for “oh, there is a small ledge I must ascend“.

And yes, I beat it.

I think Noctis' are actually built for "well that's a long way to run, better throw in some variation to the animations on the way"

Oh man. Why the hell did I just replay it?

They really are continuing full throttle in adding stuff. Some of that is a bit vague though. They said they're adding more explorable Insomnia. Is that during the whole game or just at the end?

And they say the boat will now be controllable across the ocean. But are they adding new areas to actually explore with it? Because there's not really anything in the sea except Angelgard island that you might go and explore.

My big hope is that the controllable boat means they're also gonna be adding the second continent in a later update and so that's a way of linking everything up.

Not sure why they're releasing another edition of the game in March though given that it sounds likes they're continuing development all the way through 2018.

I'm not sure, but I hope that whoever has the Season Pass won't be forced to pay again for this extra stuff, since the word is also a bit vague on that.

Nonetheless I'll still buy it since I'm really curious on what this game is all about and why does people have really polarizing view all around

Siliconera says it's an additional $20 for current owners.

Not sure what on earth that's paying for. Both the Insomnia stuff and the explorable ocean will have to add quite a lot of content to make it worth $20.

Or maybe that $20 is for a new season pass that will also include the other stuff they're releasing later in the year.
I think at this point I'm gonna sell my copy and just wait until absolutely everything has been released and then buy whatever the final version ends up being. I prefer having it all on 1 disc anyway.

I'm glad they brought back Cor 10 years later though. He got so shortchanged in the main game. I hope they bring Aranea into it too.

Seems like better option to take! Since I need to take a dip in the original game first before deciding if the dlc will be worth it, and the steam will be kind of "complete", I'll just grab Steam's.

How long did it take you to beat it with decent amount of exploration?

Guys.
I just confused between FF X-2 and FF XII.
Why did FF XII Europe version rated PEGI 16 while FF X-2 Europe version rated 12 ?
If because of The Sexiness, i thought FF X-2 had Sexy Le Blanc with her boobs. For XII, is that because of Viera clan sexiness, especially Fran's butt ?

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (100)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (90)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)

Maybe because they're completely different games with completely different things to rate.

Yeah I don’t know either.

@darkfenrir

Have you not played it at all then? Wow, I wish I'd skipped the mess it was on launch and waited til now. It's improved so so much.

The Steam version might not be complete. They made it sound previously like they're continuing development until the end of 2018 and definitely did promise a DLC episode for Ardyn (the villain). That's not mentioned here so I think there's definitely more coming.

As for the DLC, I would say that the Prompto DLC and Ignis DLC really aren't optional. They've tried to pretend they're optional because they ran out of time on development but pretty much everyone agrees that those 2 DLC are crucial for the main story and they make the main game so much better. They add a lot of crucial story points and they really help with the pacing in the second half of the game too.

As for the length of the game. My regular playthrough on launch only took about 30 hours. My playthrough I just finished this month with all of the current DLC probably took about 45 hours.

FFXII is a more mature game overall. In terms of its story and themes. Probably something to do with that.

@Dezzy Yeah, since no PS4 (yet, depending on my finances), haven't touched it or seen it much other than going to see the Kingsglaive movie last year.

And yeah, while I might want to wait for some of the future DLC (because damn, villain's DLC sounds really good), I just kinda... got curious, I guess. I mean I can wait, it's just harder to wait when it comes to your platform of choice...

(And with my hyper slow speed of internet, downloading this will take 1 week maybe, with that 100GB free space being asked)

Guess I'll see how it goes, if they'll clarify about season pass and stuff though, thanks for the answer nonetheless! (I feel 50bucks are worth it for the 45 hours anyway)

@darkfenrir

Definitely watch the Brotherhood anime on youtube before you play it as well. Both that and Kingsglaive are essential to get the most out of the story.

I honestly would just wait until they're finally done with it.

The updates they've already added have improved the game massively. If these upcoming updates continue to improve it throughout 2018, the final game will be incredibly good.

The first one they've pretty much promised is Ardyn DLC. After that they kinda hinted that they might do Luna DLC (main love interest) but they haven't made that one clear yet. Both of those would definitely add to the story quite a bit. Luna especially was heavily under-developed as a character and needed a lot more screentime.
