Sazh was probably the strongest character narrative-wise, but eventually he just kind of got shoved into total comic relief. :P

I can't argue that. ; ) I just wish there had been a way to make him strong. If anyone that has played with him knows the secret, let me know.

My thanks to RPGuy for teaching me how to make Hope awesome.

Yeah, what was up with the Upgrade system. Upgrade a weapon 90 times, next weapon still better! WTH?

I was making good progress if 13 before in froze mid cutscene and I lost a lot of progress. :( I did like Sazh a lot, but I also liked Vanille a lot so what do I know? XD

That is why they have different kinds of characters (in all games), so there is someone that everyone can like. To this day hubby hates Hope. I haven't a clue why.

Yeah, but I hated them all. Every single one except Sazh. :P

Though I only played 40 hours, so I didn't get past the tutorial.

I'm not huge on Hope myself. But I didn't get that far so I imagine he must have grown up somewhere through the story. Maybe after I beat Hyrule Warriors (And by beat I mean get tired of grinding) I'll give 13 another try.

He is grown up in XIII-2, though not a playable character. I didn't care for him either until RPGuy showed me his strengths. ;D I'm currently in Chapter 7 and he is kickass.

Been playing a ton of Bravely Default lately. Anyone who hasn't played it yet deserves to give it a try! Have to highly recommend The World Ends With You as well - easily the best DS game I've -ever- played, and ranks up there as one of the best games I've played. Easily in the top ten.

So I just finished "Ori and the Blind Forest". They've got a deal with Microsoft, so it's only available on PC and Xbone at the moment, unfortunately, but if you can play it, I can't recommend it enough. Great art, great music, surprisingly great challenge for a game that looks so pretty, too.

+1

I'm far from finishing it, but so far it seems to be a perfect blend of Castlevania and your favorite Miyazaki film.

So I'm reading through some comments here and there on reviews of FFXV, and people are actually saying that they haven't experienced great moments in a FF series in a long time, until they played through the demo and summoned Ramuh.  A lot of people are seeming to see this as what a lot of FF fans have been waiting for.  I honestly don't think SE is going to fuck this up.

They probably can't afford to fuck it up, either. FFXV has been in the pipeline for a long time. I imagine they've spend a lot of money to get it out in its current state.

I could say something about not counting domestic fowl before they hatch, but honestly I want it to do well. I want it to be a return to great Final Fantasy, but I'm afraid for me it's too little too late. I just will not allow myself to get suckered in by another Final Fantasy game.

So... Turns out payday is also tax return day! Thinking of getting caught up on my backlog, but definitely giving type-0 a shot now.

Just need to decide on PS4 or Xbone version...

I know that feeling but after playing the demo, I have little doubt that it is going to fuck up.  Also Type-0 is pretty good, not huge open world but the game is rather focused.

I don't want to be a stickler, but you're making it sound like it is going to be a screw up.

You have little doubt, but it's indicating that XV is going to be nothing but a F-up.

Are you playing on the PS4, Six? Basically, I'm trying to find out if the game has any touchpad controls. That's the deciding factor between versions for me.

You don't use the touch pad for Type-0, in fifteen you use it for one thing I can't remember off the top of my head.

I honestly hate that thing so much it's a deal breaker for me. Having to do swipes on it in infamous for actions that could have been a button (like opening a door) was such an annoyance. I can tolerate it for things like map or menu navigation, but that's about it.

No, it isn't part of combat.  I think it actually brings up a menu and that is it so far.

So, like I said before, I started playing FFX again. Now that I can, allI've been doing is playing blitzball. I've got a pretty strong team to, except fo one defenseman. It's kind of funny, aside from that one guy my lowest level player is like 15, and Jassu is level 9 or 10.
