Gears of War had the same but with Mad World spewing into your ear holes.

I saw they were pissing away thousands of pounds on Resi 6 telly ads despite being 9 months away. Fuck knows what the point of those are when you can stick it on YouTube and pay nadda.

Anyway I digress, Final Fantasy...

There's a Final Fantasy XIII-2 demo hidden away on the dash board. I've still never played a single FF so I'm downloading it now for a looky-look.

As far as I can tell from other opinions, XIII and XIII-2 aren't particularly great entrance points to the series. In fact, there hasn't been a truly great game (in my opinion at least) since the PSX, so you're not going to find it there!

They had a demo in Oxford Streets HMV, about 5 minutes play left me furious with the entire series. Like FFX which I loathe but ten times worse. Oh and there is this abomination that they did to the chocobo theme as well.

Yep this is so. I weirdly enjoyed the game sounding a little different on different PCs depending on how good the sound card was. Even a basic mod for the original to use the proper mp3s for the music would be ace.

Are all of them so absurdly kooky? This one had two normal anime characters being followed by this poorly rendered floating pig with a bulb on its head.

Plus the fight sequences looked "ok" but when you moved around the world it was distinctly horrid looking.

It didn't help that the first thing you fight is a disembodied giant hand that took ten minute of tedious floaty fighting.

They've always had their quirks, but they seem to have been getting progressively more 'WTF Japan?!' in recent years.

XIII-II got 5/10 in this month's Edge. Is that a new low rating for a Final Fantasy game? I dunno, what are you asking me for? Fucking come around here asking me stupid questions. Jesus.

Cait Sith made no fucking sense. The actually character was supposed to be the cat on top of the slot machine, but also being remotely controlled by someone that worked for Shinra. I think. Fuck it, to the wikipedia!

Quote:
[]...a robotic talking cat who is friendly, but often unreliable and speaks with a Scottish accent.[14] In Final Fantasy VII, he rides on the back of an unnamed robotic moogle; in subsequent adaptations, he either walks by himself or rides Red XIII. As a robot, he is able to be rebuilt and replaced, and is controlled by Reeve Tuesti, whose original intent during Final Fantasy VII was to infiltrate Cloud's group and sabotage their resistance efforts on behalf of his employers.[15] He is revealed to be a spy but convinces the party that he has had a change of heart[15] and later volunteers to extract the black materia at the Temple of the Ancients, noting that he was a robot and thus could easily be sacrificed. However, Cait Sith also states that, despite there being several toys with the same appearance, he was a unique being that would be willing to sacrifice himself to protect the Planet


Worryingly I don't remember the black materia part, but it has been yonks since I completed a playthrough.

I remember him fucking off with all the materia. The most annoying part of all that is having to put it all back again.

And leaves you almost powerless in a series of random battles as you try to find her to get it back.

Yuffie and Vincent are optional characters, consequently they don't appear in any of the end-of-game FMV. I think I'm right in saying you can encounter Yuffie before too as there's a very small chance she'll appear in a random encounter battle in the forests near Wutai.

Wow, just checking into the above I found this: http://www.jegged.com/Playstation/Final ... anics.html

I had no idea stuff like that was built in. Dialogue from the word go will affect something really arbitrary quite far into the game. Neat :)

WTF? I wrote a big thing about what happens after the black materia is given to Tseng, but how it isn't the most annoying thing in the game (etc).

I think my brain is broken.

I've been on the date with Barret, but not Yuffie.

Reading those mechanics, to get Yuffie you'd have to make a point of doing everything you can to appease her while pissing off everyone else as much as possible.

That was basically the same as you have to do with Barret. There was no "proper" guide, though - just a list of suggestions, so you had to do it all the time!

It's also really hard to be mean to Tifa because, you know, tits.

Doesn't Cloud bang her towards the end of the game anyway? I seem to recall it being highly implied.

Some of the voice acting in that trailer is pretty bad. At least the game looks like it might be decent though... or at least not just a straight-up remake
