FFXII isn't as bad as people make out.


Ahh grinding the Monster Arena for Spheres, good times. FFX is a great game after you get past all the guff like the plot, story, character history and just to the last save point inside Sin before the End Boss Yu Yevon. Blitzsball, monster hunting, beating the Dark summons, farming Dark Matters from Dark Yojimbo and Penance.

FFXII is all right but I felt out of love with it after hearing I couldn't get the ultimate weapon because I opened a few chest early in the game, Thanks EA. :rolleyes:


Yeah I know right? I've got the guide for FFXII, and when I read that you have to leave certain chests I thought it was such bullshit. No one is going to know that on their first play through, and it's such a silly way to get the ultimate weapon.

Anyway, I've been super grinding in the monster arena, lol, I've been trying to use the Don Tonberry method to get lots of S Levels but I need to be able to use clear spheres to make the best use of those S Levels. Still though, even without the clear spheres Tidus and Auron hit for about 30'000.... 8)

How can you miss it? It's everywhere these days. Marvelous are pumping a new one out every six months now, or so it seems. :lol:

Granted it takes about three years for them to get over here, since Rising Star can't find their own arses with both hands and a map, but you can import still the DS games from the US. :yes:

I'd personally wait, why pay £40 for a game when you know it'll be a lot cheaper for the same game, with maybe extra content 6 months later :yes:

For most games, I agree about waiting... But this is different. Buy it now, honestly, you won't regret spending the extra few monies.
Such an incredible game! I'm partway through it now - damn my parents buying me that when I'm meant to be revising for January exams :lol:

Definitely. It's got a really deep storyline and Lore and everything... But in this game I can actually be arsed reading it, and am actually interested!

Dragon Age just looks like a generic Morrowind/Oblivion copy.

To be honest, it's not as good as Oblivion, but nothing will ever be.

Yeah, well Mario says that porn is worse than violent video games. Personally, I think they both have vested interests in the subject and their opinions should be taken with a grain of salt.
