I haven't played any final fantasy games since the XIII Trilogy. So idk about all these 14's and 15s and things you guys speak of. Have I missed anything that really makes too much of a difference?

If FF14 has graduated from good to mediocre then what is a good MMO?  WoW? GW2?

I am holding my breath right now on WoW until Legion launches and Blizzard actually keeps their promises.

 

GW2 had the potential to be good, without the right support.

 

I would say that every MMO is a shadow of what the market needs to shift to, but I'm extremely critical so it might just be me.

 

FF14 needs to shift out of this "every raiding content has to either be impossible or too easy" and "everything must be a grind of kill 800 guys" mentality that the East has.

Not sure if anyone played Final Fantasy Agito but that game was pretty balls. I had great expectations when I started the game, seeing all the towns and the Coeurl cave and shit but it was just a facade. Every town looks exactly the same and has no relevant content in it, and the caves were exactly the same. Not to mention the caves were so few and far between. A lot of the characters were more broken than others too. The gun class, the scythe class, and the rapier class were fucking broken.

saw my buddy play the demo for 15 where you primarily play as a kid and we both concluded the same thing: some kind of kingdom hearts shit that neither of us would want to play most likely. someone kill the series its over

Considering doing a replay of Chrono Trigger 5+ years after my last one in the near future.  What's the status on that game with ports and such?  First time round it was EMU, save files lost on an old hard drive, but are the ports to Steam and such worth ignoring emulator and all its frameskippy goodness these days?

I literally bought my PS4 for KH3 and FF15. I barely touch the stupid potato.

I mean sure but like I can just play the games in 2020 on a 250 dollar PS4 pro can't I.  And that's assuming KH3 doesn't get a port, it's on fucking UE4 if you can't get a simultaneous release when you're making a game with UE4 what kind of a game developer are you.  

 

Honestly the only exclusives that are worth it are Sony's internal studio ones and Bloodborne, and none of Sony's internal studio ones are SUPER duper worth it.

 

But yeah 2018 for the anniversary sucks, I was hoping 2017 for the Scorpio holiday release

yeah im immensely frustrated with my decision to get a ps4 - i got it because my gaming pc was getting long in the tooth but it would be a financial burden to replace, and i wanted to play FO4 +  FF15 + more recent games potentially with other human beings; and then like two months later the pro gets announced and my psu turfs my gaming pc so i gotta replace parts anyway for work reasons 

 

And i dont even have ff15 yet lol

I'm 10 hours in to my first playthrough of XIII. I don't understand the upgrade system, and don't want to waste resources. That being said, I'm not all about 100% runs and ultimate weapons.

How much should I worry about this? Any links to a spoiler-free guide? Are ultimate weapons easily obtainiable with prior knowledge without extensive backtracking/ exploration?

My memory is hazy but each character gets their own GF and have 6 different specialties.  There's the attack variant like commander? And support ones like saboteur.  Eventually everyone unlocks all 6 but start off with 3 preselected setups

 

assign roles for each character like have lightning/snow with offensive abilities and vanille/hope with heal/debuff shit

Yuh.

I was referring to upgrading weapons, not the roles.

There's basically no real waste. The vast majority of materials are readily available later on and most of the rare stuff isn't available in the story anyways. If you wanna be safe just don't use weapons with the wonkier effects (stuff like Leaden or Ultimate Magick are more expensive to upgrade and strictly worse if you don't go for a set bonus).

 

EDIT: To explain the system in more detail, it works like this. The scrap you can give to weapons have 2 values: an EXP value and an EXP multiplier value. Using stuff with a positive multiplier value will give you a bonus to the next thing you feed in. Conversely, the stuff that gives EXP multipliers (animal parts) have low base EXP. Mechanical parts have high base EXP but LOWER the multiplier value (1x is the floor). In practice this means you wanna use just enough animal parts to get the max multiplier (3x?) and then do a big bulk of mechanical stuff back down to 1x and repeat.

 

There's also stuff that gives neither good EXP or EXP multiplier, usually for selling.

 

When you get a weapon to Lv *, it can't be upgraded anymore, but it can be changed into the next stage with a catalyst. The catalyst needed depends on the weapon but you can eventually buy them all. Note that changing a weapon with a catalyst will actually drop its stats at first, but it gains stats faster and has better caps so it's generally worth it.

That makes so much more sense than anything I tried to make of it.

Vague confirmation of Final Fantasy 15 coming to PC.  Leakers said awhile ago that it was on track to come to Scorpio and PC for the 30th anniversary in 2018, looks like that seems to be what's happening.
