    Yeah, and by the time LEON rejoined, he was a weak little pissant whom you had to regrind to get strong enough stats to hold up in Pandemonium.

    Although the "Soul of Rebirth" side quest in the remakes does sound pretty interesting.

    Such is why I want Maria.

    Also, Gordon and Leila didn't die. In fact, Leila was awesome.

    Gordon did die. He was crushed by a boulder, remember?

    Leila lives though. And yes, she is awesome.

    No, you're thinking of Joseph.

    In FFII I always hated trying to head to Town C, only to get slaughtered by the first random encounter in the vicinities of Towns N, O, and P due to the game's vague directions and hatred of cohesive map design.

    I remember having so much trouble with the final boss until I realized that I could just spam Berserk on Guy and Leon to rack up insane amounts of damage and win without breaking a sweat. The trick worked like a charm in Soul of Rebirth too.

    I don't remember a lot about FFII, but I still remember Joseph's death.. poor bastard.

    Good storytelling.

I didn't cry or anything, but the music, the atmosphere, and everything we had known about her up to that point made it fairly depressing.

    Now that's good story-writing.
    Agreed. I still get a little psyched every time I get to that point in subsequent playthroughs. I love good storytelling moments like that, so every time I get to that part, I get just a little bit jazzed.

    Drawing from the past: Not necessarily good.

    Innovation: Not necessarily good

    If you think making a good RPG relies solely on one of these factors then you're going to fall down the same path Square did.

    And did the guy who made Blue Dragon really just tell Square to be more innovative? Blue Dragon, the game that could easily have been made in 1993 with shoddier graphics and been equally awful then.

    Has there ever been a Final Fantasy 3 (the real 3, not 6) release in english/other languages than japanese outside the DS remake? I'm currently playing through I-XII (except for 11) and 3 is the only one left, but I can't stand the DS chibi remakes. Playing the old pixel 2D games is much more fun...

    Unfortunately, no. There has not been a legal release of the original 2D style outside Japan.

    FFXIV seems to be pretty terrible by all accounts.

    Getting a 4.0 on gamespot is quite the black eye.

    It's a shitty game for all the reasons I hate MMOs. Let's hope this is a wakeup call for Square Enix.

    Sigh.. who am I kidding?

    Square Enix won't wake up anytime soon. I watched the video review and I am so glad I did not pre-order that mess.

    between this and XIII I have no hope for any game with the Final Fantasy title anymore.

    At least they still have Dragon Quest. And I quite enjoyed what I played of Nieeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    Sounds good to me.

    Maybe Horii would be the first person to make a fun mmo.
