so i've never really played a FF game (except those before FF7, the ones that were on the nes and snes). I have lost odyssey and another JRPG i thought was lost odyssey when EB games had it on sale for $10 (it sucked)

I like lost odyssey, but i found it hard to get into, i guess the production value was not what i was expecting, i know the FF are pretty epic, but do you think it's worth a buy? I dunno, i'm torn on this one. I really want to play it, but i'm afraid it will just sit there like so many games i have.

i did a lot of google search on the differences and this is one of few serious links that i found. It looks like video scenes aren't too far from each other unless viewed as a stillshot.

So I started to upgrade weapons and acces. and it's a little complicated at first and I'm just winging it right now. I will probably consult the guide on my second playthrough to see what fits best with what. The cystarium is also getting more and more role-specific so now I can finally taylor what I want my party to do.

I've hated Hope and Vanille ever since they first came into the game. I hate Vanille a little less now, but fuck Hope is such a little bitch.

I know right, he's a pussy with everything to prove. Vanille is just the result of bad writing on the part of the Japs that give every feminine character the same personality.

it bugs the hell out of me when games have artifacts in their cutscenes -- especially on PS3 version of multiplatform games where they obviously could have re-encoded them and use more of the blu-ray space but lazily chose to throw up the crappy compressed version they made for 360 instead. i love FFXIII's flawless video on PS3 -- really emphasizes their production values.

i actually think its hilarious whenever vanille is on screen. i always have to do a facepalm laugh whenever she opens her mouth.

hope, however, makes me want to kill children. im glad his mom died, i hope she stays dead. actually, i hope she turns out to be alive and snow kills her again.


also, snow's a douche.
