I will admit, I didn't get too far into the game before losing interest. I got past a couple of bosses, but not too far at all. So it's not like you'll have to go through the whole thing to see what I mean. n_n
Once in a while, the fans do know better. Unfortunately, it seems the fans know better most of the time when it comes to Final Fantasy. For the longest time, they had an awesome formula of great graphics, beautiful music, amazing storyline, solid battling system, and excellent characters. After FF IX or X (Never played much of X, but it looked like it was actually pretty good) the graphics kept getting better and pretty much everything else took a dump as far as I'm concerned. A lot of the characters really look alike in a weird way now, the music isn't bad, but it isn't memorable, I'm not sure what to say about the storylines and I can't really say anything good about the battling system as it stands now. When I played FFXIII it was more like an interactive movie than an RPG. Say what you like about turn-based systems, but when I play an RPG, I want to have time to think out a strategy, not sit there pressing one button at certain intervals so I can watch the characters do a bunch of pre-programmed crap. You can literally get through most of the battles just by mashing the x button. It's pretty sad. So I can believe it that they did something dumb like select 1 character (and one of the lesser known characters at that) from arguably one of the best FFs ever and screw that character up while they include 3 stupid characters from one of their crappiest games ever (*cough* yuna, payne and what's-her-name. *cough*)
Yep, that's the one. You did need to get his HP up at least a bit, because even in the back row Ultros could destroy him in one hit. But it's really easy, all you have to do is go around the circular area in the river a few times that that should get him up there.
FFVI has to be my favourite of all the FFs, so it's probably the one I'd recommend. And you're quite correct, Kefka is amazing! I'd say he's probably the best villain ever in the history of anything. But of course, that is just my opinion. But hey, he's got a lot going for him; great look, great laugh, hilarious speeches, he grows in power as your team does, he actually manages to destroy the world and assume the power of several gods, and he has the simplest goal of any villain ever: He's insane, he's evil, and he loves destruction. You can't get much better than that.
Most of them do, but not all. Admittedly, FFVII does need a good deal of grinding. FFVI doesn't really need much at all since everyone can learn magic (if you teach them the magic spells, you're pretty much set. There's only one point in the game where you do an "escort mission" that seriously requires some grinding), and I've gotten to the final boss on FFIX without grinding at all (but I wish I'd done at least a bit. Level 35-40 was kind of low, lol!) Haven't played the first 3 or VIII myself, so I have no opinion on those. FFIV does need quite a bit of grinding. As for FFV, they actually made the grinding process really fun because of the job system, so I can never tell if I need to be gaining those levels or if I'm just doing it to have this crazy powerful, super-customized team.
Just from a collector's standpoint. The original games are a little more sought after because they're older and harder to find. I don't believe there were any actual gameplay differences between them though.
Yeah, it was amazing! Really lucky, too, the store just happened to have it there that day so he bought it for me. ^^ That's only the second time I've ever seen FFVII in a store, and it was the first time that I've seen a copy that wasn't a "greatest hits" version of the game.
Basically a Rouge Team is a unique team thats not based off any competitive smogon recommendations and is uncommon. Those are the kinda teams that I like to use cause I hate blending in and I don't let other's define me.
Hey! So, it would appear that there aren't too many people left participating in Torpoleon's Return of Team Galactic RPG. Are you still willing to keep going? Because I'll keep posting as long as there are others
Honestly, when I picked Taillow for Falkner, it was because I wanted to give him something that would be a challenge for Olivia to defeat. The other choices were Pidove or Starly, and I didn't feel either of those were what I was looking for for this fight. (Falkner's six Pokemon are Pidgeotto/Hoothoot/Starly/Pidove/Taillow and maybe something like Mantyke)
I'm sure better Pokemon will be revealed soon if you don't like them. Personally, I like all of them.
I wouldn't worry about your team going to waste. I was worried about no Pokemon transfer from Gen 5 to 6 at first, but then I realized that if that happened, no events for the Genesect movie would be accessible in Gen 6.
