    Well fuck, then I have no idea how long it took me to 100% it. I still think it was around 80 hours. Did you plat 13 in 85 hours, maybe that was the one I was thinking.

    Hated the battle system at first, but I liked it a bit better when I played it last year. Battles were pretty exciting, my only complaint is that they ended up taking a while to complete, even for just harder than average enemies.

    Music and visuals were great, as usual. I actually went out of my way to download the soundtrack to XIII and XIII-2 a couple weeks ago, and I've enjoyed them (except for Crazy Chocobo) when they play on my playlist. (Which I've randomized, and it has 7676 songs)
    That right there. I bought it brand new when it first came out, but I was really unimpressed with the story so I sold it off pretty quick. Then last year I got 13-2 for my sons 360 (I was PS3-less), and then me and Beam proceeded to go through together via MSN. Again the story was ass, but I loved the combat and the monster collecting. Then when I got my PS3 back I knew I had to go back and try 13 again. It's a beautiful game no doubt, and the combat system is fun as shit, but I like my FF's to have an open-world feel to it, a sense that i can take a break and go hunting for rare shit. The Stones missions didn't do it for me.

    The battle system turned out to be one of my favorite as far as FF games go (I liked 12's as well). And the graphics were beyond superb. But I want more than that in my FF's. Like Kankri said, they could have called it something else and I would have probably loved it more.

    Definitely, I especially liked FF7, where even with the Meteor about to impact with the Planet, you could still go around the world, and even see the NPC's reactions to it. Little things like that make the game.

    I'd have liked the game a lot better, but I'm still very very bitter from then first Barthandelus fight. It was bullshit and made me stop playing the game for over a year.

    I pretty much play just to collect the loot, and then selling off the junk to make lots of gold, which I never use but always think I'll need for later.

    Not the first time, but yeah the other 4-5 platinum runs were all in the 75-85 hour range.

    Good

    Meh, FF's have no 'style' to me, so I don't expect anything out of the new ones. I treat them all like they aren't a FF game, I enjoy them much more that way. The only thing I expect from a FF game, is that it's gonna try something new, which is why I like them so much. And the battle system was definitely new.

    And the funny thing is, the story is actually pretty decent if you know the mythology. It's just too bad you can't learn the mythology anywhere in the game, which was a very stupid decision.

    You're not alone about that fight. The developers hold your hand for 30 hours, get you to that point and hope you've learned everything you needed to. That fight is made to test you, and it's not an easy test, as it's hard to wrap your head around the mechanics when they haven't let you play for yourself very much up to that point.

    I did the same thing lol. I'd only keep the gold stuff, and a purple thing every now and then. The only reason I used gold was to change my stats every other level. I think that was my favorite part of the game, being able to completely change your character, class, and skills whenever you wanted instead of having to start a new game.

    While I appreciate the offer I don't own Brotherhood anymore, and I can very rarely go online with my PS3. What I can do is add you to my friend's list, I plan on sending one to Kankri and Encorporeus when I can get back online.

    I beg to differ, I've paid attention to every story (and cared about the characters) in alot of FF games. 4, 7, 8 (but it sucked), 9, 10 and 12. And they let you do whatever you want at some point in the games. I never got the feeling I could do that in 13 or 13-2. But I can't argue with the combat in either one or the monster collecting in 13-2.

    13's linearity was a lot because of the story, and 10 wasn't very different in that regard to me. And the story wasn't as terrible as it seems, but it requires knowledge of the mythologies that aren't in the game. And 13-2 definitely had freedom to do whatever you wanted, whenever you wanted. Hell, you could start what was essentially a new game+ at any point you wanted to. But I could debate this for days, so I'll just agree to disagree

    I've been a since it wasn't cool to be a

    When I was a kid not everyone had video games, I had to gt my RPG fix by rolling 20 sided die in D&D.

    I think we have debated this before.

    I agree 13-2 gave you freedom, I just never took advantage of it unless I needed to.

    Thanks Wiz, but I'd rather read a book/blog than write one lol.

    Speaking of, I hear Stephen King is writing a new book and he refuses to put it out in e-book form, paper only. Sign me up.

    Whenever I heard that in school it was usually followed by a wedgie or getting stuffed in a locker. Fucking jocks

    Hey, 3's better than nothing.

    If you like GoW and Zelda games you'll love Darksiders. I had a blast playing it.

    Thanks everyone for keeping me company in here.

    I never gave Darksiders a fair try, maybe I'll attempt to play it again sometime in a few months.

    I see you got close to the plat, do you think I'd be able to do it?

    I can't see you having a problem with it. Back in the day when I was renting everything, going for the plat was out of the question. I'm pretty sure i could have platted this if i owned it, I don't remember it being all that difficult, I just know I had fun playing it.

    "Yes I do!!"
