FFX HD Remaster for PS3 and Vita

399 posts in this topic

I remember being 22 hours in and being stuck at a particularly tough boss, it was a huge accomplishment when I finally beat it.

was it on the mountain, fighting that flying sepharim construct of the bad guy? i remember that particular fight being very difficult both times i played it through.

alas, blitzball is the main reason i want to play this game again =) it's all i did in the first one anyways. i wish that there was a standalone version of it or similar out there.

Seymour on Mount Gagazet? That one always gave me a ton of trouble, far more than Yunalesca usually does.

yes. i firmly believe that's the toughest boss in the game, none other gave me that much issue just because you're never farmed up by that point :<

If he is the one that inflicts zombie status on you and instantly kills your aeons I agree as well.

Here's the secret to beating every boss in the game. Get all of your aeons to overdrive and summon them one after another. Even if you are facing seymour who can one-shot KO them, the combined overdrives of them all is enough to kill or almost kill all of the bosses.

It was on the exterior of the airship right before crashing the wedding, and the awesome cutscene of everyone surfing down the chains.

This is how I assume TGS will go down.

FFX is announced delayed or being released the next day. Either way reaction is as below.

Here's a brand new trailer, sadly still for Japan and not US.

And comments + ratings were disabled, so take from that what you will. :cry:

Looks good to me, though.

you DO realize that square enix ALWAYS disables comments and ratings for their videos, right?

or at least their Japanese channel does.

Sweet trailer. The game looks great.

Still no release date though. Just "This Winter......sometime......probably"

I had hoped, really hoped that they had re-recorded Yuna's badly-delivered english lines, but nope! Same crap as 2001.

The original voices are perfect. If that's the level of quality they're bringing to the sound production though, they're going to need a broom, because it's a mess.

I clicked away when the video started and went back to it at about 7sec in. I thought it was the HD remaster in the Bikanel desert. Did a double take.

I just wanted to share this little story that happened to today involving FF and linearity.

This guy was buying a Final Fantasy XIII strategy guide because he's, "At the beginning and lost. I don't know where to go and the game doesn't tell you. There is a map, but that doesn't help much."

I almost burst out laughing. This is a game that is notorious for being a straight line the entirety of the game and he's lost. Now, I'm not trying to sound like a hardcore gamer douchebag, but getting lost in FF XIII is as bad as getting lost when your destination is the house across the street.

Well... ok... there's some parts where there are puzzles or whatnot. I personally never had a problem with it. Maybe he's in that one really long hallway that seems like it never ends, so he thinks there had to be some other way to go. Who knows. Either way that's how they sell strategy guides.

I think a FFX guide is justified, it's linear but not THAT linear. You get a lot of freedom to backtrack to any area and there are a lot of secrets.

Well it refuses to cue up to the part where it's supposed to. It's supposed to start at 10:37

I think it's justified just for all of Rikku's overdrives. That's why my friend got the guide. That's also why I consulted GameFAQs instead of paying for a guide.

I always consult GameFAQs instead of buying a guide. The only guide I ever bought was the FF9 one, and we all know how that turned out.

If you're keeping score, that's 2.5 years after the first announcement way back when we were young, in September 2011. Time flies, yo.
