@KratosMD it is difficult if you go in blind but if you put the time in you can overcome that but i would say get both as they are completely different games and offer different experiences

so my PSP screen is going a bit, funny, i'm not sure how to explain it but it's like it has a ring or something on the screen, it looks like a water mark on a piece of paper

anyway long story short my Brother gave me a PSN gift card for xmas so i decided to buy the digital version of Dissidia 012 as it's on sale so i can play it on my Vita BUT it means i have to start again

unless anyone knows how to transfer PSP save to Vita?

anyway now i just have to figure out what i'm going to do about Crisis Core as that NEVER got a digital release, of course i do have a PSP to TV cable somewhere so if push came to shove i could use that and play my PSP through my TV

anyway did anyone get any FINAL FANTASY related gifts for Xmas?

@FullbringIchigo Same thing happened to my PSP screen, it's covered in these strange blotches.

Do you have a PS3? What I've done in the past is copy saves from the PSP to the PS3 using the PS3's USB charge cable and then from the PS3 to the Vita.

Thank you NHS

@mookysam i do have a PS3 so i will try that, thanks

also if the same thing happened to your PSP i wonder if it's a common issue?

After the delay of Cyberpunk 2077, I'm now gonna pre order FF7 Remake. Woop woop, all aboard the hype train.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

@kyleforrester87 is that a reference from something? If so, it's gone well over my head! 😂

I've just noticed it is released on Good Friday here in the UK, which is a bank holiday and the following Monday is too. This might have to be a digital purchase.

So I decided to continue playing Final Fantasy VI today and I'm now at the part of World of Ruin where I've retrieved the Airship and the world has pretty much opened up for exploration. This part is kinda overwhelming and I feel like it's going to break the pacing of the game for me, since it feels like there are so much more to do now in the game instead of only following the story.

As I explored, I managed to find the opera house and come across the "Earth Dragon" there. After I defeated it, it said that there were 7 more dragons to defeat and I got an "Ultima Weapon", like in previous FF games. So this got me thinking, should I simply follow the story for now until I reach the point in the game where I have to explore the world and find all the dragons before defeating the final boss? Because I still haven't found the rest of my team members and I'm guessing that's part of the storyline right now. I just want to know what's the best way to do this since last time I played, I was burned out by the game and I don't want that to happen again.

@KratosMD i would suggest getting your characters then heading for the end game, the Dragons are optional if i remember correctly

@FullbringIchigo Alright, thanks for the advice!

I've actually been playing a lot of FFVI lately and I think I'm liking this game now way more than before, simply because of the fact that it's completely open world now. We usually bring up the topic about how Final Fantasy games have the "illusion" of being open world. They let you go across whole maps but there's not much to do other than to follow the storyline. However in FFVI when you've retrieved the Airship, there truly is a lot of stuff to do besides the story. You can visit previous areas and find new items (such as magicites). You can also explore new dungeons, find cool equipment there, find the rest of your team there as well as fight bosses and the dragons and acquire better gear. Or you can just proceed with the story and go to to the places you're supposed to go. I'm actually really loving this openness and I think it's the first time at that point that a Final Fantasy game has gone truly open world with actual stuff do to in the world, which is amazing.

Speaking of first time, FFVI is also the first time where the series has introduced an item which lets you skip random encounters, which is an unbelievable item to add in these games! After having played for dozens of hours, it's a freaking blessing that I'm able to turn off random encounters completely thanks to Mog and his charm and just blast through dungeons which either have low-levelled enemies or incredibly annoying ones that don't yield any good rewards. Not to mention that this item lets you tackle endgame dungeons and get a lot of the good gear very early.

So yeah the game has definitely become better now, which is a thing I never thought I'd ever say about it again, lol.

well if anyone was wondering if the FFVII Remake was going to be very different to the original, it is

also we get to see some new characters including Red XIII

@FullbringIchigo Woah, it looks incredible. I definitely think more explanations are needed with the whole Sephiroth/Jenova thing as it’s rather skimmed over in the original. Also a lot of context has been added through the Compilation so I can see a lot being added. I’m just hoping that there’ll eventually be playable Zack during THAT section.

I thought the trailer was a bit all over the place with a bit too much going on personally. Didn't help the audio heavily unsynched for me so I didn't really pay attention to that song all that much that it's supposed to be highlighting 😂

Looks exceedingly pretty though. Like seriously that's one good looking game.

There hopefully being more Jenova, even just more info about the cosmic entity, sounds cool too... She was honestly the most interesting thing about the game to me, especially more so then Sephy.

... There's ghosts or something though?! Or is that supposed to be some kinda representation of the lifestream as souls instead of just green glowy light?

Ya don't need to save the world to find meaning in life. Sometimes all ya need is something simple, like someone to take care of - Aigis Persona 3

@nessisonett it looks like they are completely rewriting it but judging by things happening it looks like they have moved many elements from the original story that happened outside of Midgar into Midgar, like the first encounter with Sephiroth

of course if they wasn't going to change it up there wouldn't be any point in remaking it

@kyleforrester87 no idea but it's going to be fun finding out

so i decided to pre-order the FINAL FANTASY VII Remake soundtrack Vinyl, mainly as a collectors piece but i'll still give it a listen

Untitled

maybe i'm old fashioned but there is something about listen to music on a record player that makes it better

@FullbringIchigo Oof, I’m jealous it’s a great collectors item. I just wish they’d reprint the original OST, I’ve been waiting for it to go down in price.
