I've finally said to heck with it and nabbed both Tales of Xillia 1&2 for a decent price. At the moment I'm laughing my ass off at the skits for Tales of Xillia.... The bondage skit is my currant fav mainly for the look on Milla's face!

OMG I adore the skits in the Tales series, especially Xillia. I hope you enjoy the games as much as I and hubby did. He didn't want to play because he prefers CGI type graphics, but once he tried Xillia he was hooked.

I'm really loving the first Xillia, though from everything I've heard the debt system of the second might slow things for me a bit. I've had to do a bit of dancing since the memory space on my PS3 doesn't compare to my 360. So I've done some adjustments and nabbed the rest of the FF13 series for that to work with. Yall will get to mess with 15 before me though as I'm waiting before upgrading my systems.

Citizens of Earth is a fun one, I've got it on Wii U.

Replaying Final Fantasy X...maybe for a little bit. Going for a max stats run but I think I have to replay the one I started a bit ago, but this time with all the Al Bhed Primers already found.

The debt system kind of threw me for a loop when it happened, but it is much easier to do than I expected. What I loved most was collecting the cats in 2. ;D Best total game side quest ever! If you find you like the games and haven't tried Tales of Graces f yet, you might like that one too.

Same problem for me with the storage space. I wish the PS systems allowed for external HDs. It makes it so much easier to play my games.

Did you get the new remastered FF X, with the new leveling chart?

Yeah, but it doesn't seem like the Expert Grid is really that advantageous. I'll stick with the modified classic that lets you learn new abilities like Distill Spheres.

For me the HD remaster was my first time playing so it felt natural to me.

It's not a significant difference (it seldom is in these remakes/remasters) but it's still a good game and I like that it bundles X-2 in it as well.

*nods* I am really looking forward to XII coming out in HD. I hope they fix the camera axis. I get so tired of turning the opposite way from where I want to go.

I have a score to settle with Yiazmat. ::)

He looks terrifying. I didn't get that far. I was going to continue playing, but saw they were doing a remaster and decided to wait for the possible axis change. Normally it wouldn't bother me, but it plays hard ball with my balance.

I can't recall how the camera work was for FF12. I abandoned the game when my memory card corrupted all save files. But I hope they polish it well in the remaster. ;D

It was all really good, but the XY axis is backward. Kind of like driving a car and you need to turn the steering wheel to the left to make a right hand turn. Not good. Many of the older Japanese games are the same way. Lately they have been making menu options to reverse and invert the camera angles.

I hope it's not just on PS4, I want to get an XBox 1 instead because Sony's getting on my nerves. But I haven't played XII, it sounded like the battle system was too great a departure from the standard JRPG.

Haven't had the chance to play Graces f yet... Perhaps I'll have it in the queue for after the Xilia's.

I've played quite a few Sqare Enix games in my day.

To completion:
FF1,4,7,8,10,12,T,TA, DQ3,4,5,8
Played a great deal:
FF2,5,6,9,10-2, DQ1,9, DQM1,DQJ1
Played a little
FF3,13, DQ2, DQM2
Haven't played
FF11,14,TA2, DQ6,7, DQJ2

The one I miss the most is FFT.  Sure, having multiple playable races was nice, and I kinda liked learning spells and abilities from gear.  But TA's story was atrocious. "Escaping the real world is bad and you should feel bad." Get a life, MC. (Can never remember the name of TA's MC.)

I am still playing Trails of Cold Steel 2, but am anxiously waiting for World of Final Fantasy to be mailed out tonight for Tuesday delivery.

It shifted from the traditional turn based to a more continuous combat system.  Granted, the ability to set behavior patterns (cast spell under certain conditions, target selection, etc) made it actually possible to afk level ...for once.
