Lolz, i’m boughted teh bootleg.

Fact: I spent a total of probably about 18 minutes playing Final Fantasy X before i decided it wasn’t worth my time sucked and never touching it again. I think i got to the first boss battle during the prelude thingy on the highway at the beginning of the game.

Never played FFX2, only got to the second disc of IX, quit once i got to the boss castle at the end of VIII (no way was i going through playing the stupid last levels with split parties and no powers, i hated it in FFIII (SNES) and i hate it in VIII. The last FF i actually finished all the way through was FFVII.

Best FF ever was FFIII on the SNES of course. I remember playing through that one from start to finish in one go. Only took me about 24 hours straight.

But considering FFXII got like a perfect 10/10/10/10 rating in Famitsu, i’m hoping that i’ll enjoy XII enough to actually complete it.

Haven’t actually playtested XII yet (i JUST got home with it), so for those of you who’ve already played it… how is it? Any good?

I realize it’s not even supposed to be out yet (US release date is October 31st) but it is available for download if you know where to look. Burn a copy and play it on your modded PS2! Me, i just buy ’em off of store shelves.

Oh hey check this out, bootleg 360 games!

Too bad my 360 isn’t modchipped. Yet…?

  1. This will be the first final fantasy game i will not play since i started playing back in the 80s. I played the demo that came with dragon quest viii and it basically just played like every other everquest mmorpg i’ve seen. The gameplay wasn’t even remotely involving or fun. I cried more than a few times that night.

  2. i agree with aug, but disagree. i also hated the demo, but i have faith in square to have a balanced, well made finished product.

    also, ff3 (ff6) for the snes is truly the best FF. so props to that.

  4. when game prices are now $60 each, bootlegs start to look more and more legit.

  5. ya, i saw that FFXII was showing up on some private torrent trackers yesterday… so nice, I wish I had a modded PS2, even a swap disc would be okay.

  6. FF3/6 certainly is the best. I’m gonna rent FF12 first to make sure it’s worth my college scholarship money.

  8. Not a big fan of Final Fantasy, although Square has made some other awesome stufff. However, from what I’ve heard, FFXII has some kind of scripting feature where it will autoplay certain areas for you. Then I found a cartoon on it and it presented it in a much… different perspective:

  9. What game is more fun, Final Fantasy or Warcraft? I’ve seen WOW, but never tried FF.
