@johncalmc Excalibur 2 at a guess

There was nothing wrong with the way FFXIII was, ALL the FF games before it were linear too (apart from the MMO's) it's just they hid it better & also JUST because it has a auto battle mode DOESN'T mean you have to use it

@johncalmc oh OK, i remember acing the Jump Rope back on the PS1 version but for some reason this time i can't do it

to be honest i think the input delay has changed which means i need to relearn the entire rhythm of the damn thing again

@kyleforrester87 Not entirely sure on how I feel yet. I'm currently at the Festival of the Hunt, so I don't think I'm that far in.

What I do like so far are the ATEs, which show what the party is up to when they're split up. It builds the characters well while you're only controlling Zidane. I also like item synthesis. I got the Ogre with it, and I can see myself having fun with it, even if it's basic by today's standard. The fact that weapons have skills to learn is also a plus, as I feel encouraged to stick with my gear more before dumping it off.

My only "issue", which may just be me feeling weird, is that I guess battles feel slower? I dunno, it could just be me, but I felt battles in 7 were faster. I kinda remember them being slower in 8 too. It's nothing major, just a weird observation.

I'll be playing it more today, I'm liking it so far!

@DerMeister The ATBs are so cool! Great way to jump about and develop minor and major characters. Synthesis is a nice idea, especially for its day.. the Ogre is a great OP weapon to have at that point too. Makes winning the festival very easy.

I do get you on the combat.. even after turning up the speed meters in the options it's just not as zippy as FF7. If you are playing the Hd remake you can put turbo on (think you pause the game and press r2 or something??) it was easier in the FF7 HD release though, you just toggled speed boost with l3.

@kyleforrester87 I've thought about using it, but since it's my first playthrough, I figured it'd be best for me to play it without any boosters. It's there for a repeat playthrough if I need it though.

@DerMeister Yeah that's fair. To be honest I don't consider the speed boost much of a "cheat" per say, but I got used to having it as a default feature on Bravely Default.

The battles are slow as all hell on FFIX. I don't remember it being like that. But it feels like everybody is moving in slow motion even on the top speed.

@johncalmc i thought that too, could be something to do with the fact it's a port of the Android/IOS release and not the OG PS1 release

Just beat the Comrades FF15 expansion. Didn't think I would do it but I enjoyed VERY much.

Loving Comrades btw

@Feena that is a good deal and i'm loving Comrades too although i still think it needs a little work, far too many loading screens, it just needs streamlining a bit is all

@WanderingBullet cool! It makes sense since now all the characters have their own combat style with the dlc episodes...

@WanderingBullet a nice edition but i doubt i'll use it much, FFXV is the story of Noctis and seen from his point of view so it seems strange to play as anyone BUT Noctis

@WanderingBullet nope sorry, you have to have the main game installed as they are accessed from the games menu
