Titus ? 😛

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

@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.

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.

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.

Just use GameFAQs' guide/walkthough :v should still be good

@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.

They can do both. Several games have. Borderlands, Bioshock, and a good chunk of the Assassin's Creed series comes to mind.

I can't wait to play FF X-2, that game has some amazing gameplay, and it doesn't take itself so seriously. Also eager to retry 12, because the first time around I couldn't understand or care about any of what was going on

Go and buy FF9. If you've never played it or any other in the series, just give it a try. Easily one of the best games ever made!

It's a bit odd how they'd just randomly drop the better of the two PS1 ports way way earlier.

So you think they just expect more people will buy 9 without 7 around.

Maybe. Although that would suggest they think the same won't happen to 10 and 12, which seems wrong. Although I guess 12 is the most graphically advanced, but it's also the least popular of the 4 games by quite a way.

7 will sell the most, because it has the cultural and historic importance that makes it the best known. Although it's definitely aged the worst of the lot.

Yes that's why I found it odd.

Between 7 and 9, 9 is the more refined and easy on the eyes. So for the regular non-fan player, it would seem like a downgrade going in that order.

Though I guess both games are already in the "mostly just for the fans" category.

Well 9 is more advanced in its technical side. It has the same character models on the field as it does in battle. Those 3D models were updated for the PC version, which means they look quite good by modern standards. It also was made for the analog stick so you can move in all directions on the maps. So for all intents and purposes, it plays very much like a modern game still. The only drawback is the low resolution backgrounds, but that will look fine if you play in handheld mode rather than on a big screen.
