    Omg lol well I hope my reentry into FFXII is better than your experience was lol. I remember actually liking the combat system though and the cities also the bestiary. Also I actually enjoyed the characters but people do mention that it seems like Bath...er...i.. Whatever the sky pirates name is and Fran are supposed to be the main characters and that it seems like Vaan and Penelo were just added because a higher up wanted young protagonists for some demographic. Oh well though. :p You don't have to like every FF game anyway. I'm determined though to complete it this time since FFX and FFXII were always the FF games that I'd played before becoming a fan but never completed them and I finally completed FFX so now I want to do the same to FFXII! :)

    It's probably a good game, just not a game that I enjoy. It also feels really dated. It might have worked when it first came out, but since many games are doing this and that a lot better, it is hard for me to go back.

    The visual style and music I did really enjoy by the way. Love the big orchestra with the John Williams-ish score. Very Star Wars... The visual design did also age really well. Still looks gorgeous today and I actually wouldn't mind another mainline FF looking like this in the future.

    Okay so I mentioned in the past that i played XII before but was never able to get past a certain airship section and gave up. Well I in the space of this one day managed to gwet back to that airship section! :D So once I get past this I'm onto completely new things in it.

    Edit: Oh and I took these! -

    I've been playing FFXII for a little while now. I also started with the PS2 version a few times but always got distracted and dropped the game for something else. I am having good time with the new version and enjoy the combat system even if it does mostly play itself with the gambits. I also like the cast a lot. Vaan may not be the most exciting character, but I still find him ok and he doesn't get on my nerves. As far as Penelo goes, I actually kind of like her. They probably don't bother so much because I consider the game to have more of an ensemble cast with no real main character.

    One thing I had decided to do was not to buy weapons and armour unless they're bazaar goods that show up from selling loot. I find that it makes exploration more satisfying when you have to find and fight for all of your gear.

    The bazaar gives really crap gear for a while but that is an interesting idea

    You are right about the quality of gear from the bazaar. I've only gotten a few useful things from there. Most of my equipment is stuff that I find on the map with a few things coming from loot dropped/stolen from enemies.

    Ardyn: Psst, I took some of Prompto's photos and put mustaches on him :cool:

    Prompto: :eek: Come back here you....! give me back mah photos!

    Ardyn: -runs-

    --------

    Ardyn: i got dis
    [​IMG]

    Me: .........lol.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    So it looks like Ardyn has actual party member data. He has 17 moves whereas the other 3 has 13 (not including Noctis because has a ton more since he has access to multiple weapons). Ardyn has no weapon and reason why he has no weapon nor can't attack is because there is a 'new" category of weapon list for him. Which we don't have access to nor found any weapons for it. He also has a shield secondary called One_winged_angel. Can't be used and doesn't work (for now). It even has underscores which means that the devs left it there for future reasons maybe. He has a tech attack that requires 3 bars, however there is no mention on whom he pairs with that requires 3 tech bars. Or maybe he does it alone like Gladio's impulse? no one knows, he can't use it either since he has no weapon.

    Ardyn also has a drive option for the Regalia with party members on auto, unfortunately nothing happens and goes right back to Ignis for auto. I assume the reason for that is because they never bothered to make an animation of Ardyn driving the regalia for the party members (he was never planned so it makes sense no?). He also only has one sleep/camping/inn rest scene, which is the one via the trailer car. This rest scene can pop up in the main story when you are about to meet Titan for the first time and he makes a pitstop to the gas station there.

    Maybe he was suppose to be in 'temporarily' and then leave after similar to Aranea? nevertheless, he is labeled as a green flag, which means that he can obtain multiple sources of events to all trigger. What that means, is that he can be like Iris where he is suppose to have in car animation, in chocobo animation, freely edit gear and accessories etc. Basically the same thing as the main cast. Whereas Cor and Aranea are labeled as a blue flag not intended for those with locked gear. Course since we recently seen the poll by Square Enix for downloadable characters, we can be sure that Cor and Aranea will be labeled as a green flag to do everything Ignis/Gladio/Prompto can do. If you must know how I did it up there, I didn't. I had someone else do it for me via Playstation Dex forums.

    Okay I'm continuing playing through FFXII! :D It's been really fun so far. Quite a lot harder to me than the other FF games I've played. I had a feeling the game was hard. ( Maybe I just suck though ) I've needed help at times through it but I'm managing to just level up and go through my self. Fran is amazing as I expected lol and I'm really liking all the other characters too also this game must be significantly longer than the other FF games cause If the other FF games are to be compared I'd have completed them by now. Anyway I'm going to continue to try to complete it even as I die...over...and over...and over again. :/

    I'm really excited excited about Dissidia, I looked up some old English voices for the characters and I have to say Onion Knight(Who I'll mainly use) and Tifa have some pretty good VAs, which I know will be even better since it's been a few years

    I DID IT! :D I COMPLETED FFXII!! Yay! :D

    It was so hard at the end but that was probably due to me being under leveled as always. ;) I didn't think I was going to make it but the Espers saved me. *phew* That was really stressful at the end there but I managed to do it! I loved this game so much! I'm happy that I was able to play it again and complete it finally.

    I actually didn't sign up in the first place. ;) For two reasons:

    1) I don't have a PS+ subscription (which you need?) and I don't plan to get one.
    2) I very much dislike playing online.

    I still would've loved to try out the game. :(
