Yeah, the X-Axis stuff screwed me up too.  Took me about an hour to get used to it.  Very aggrivating.

WOW at the music in the game though, especially the stuff in the intro video and opening cutscene.  Had a very John Williams flavor to it and felt very unlike normal FF music. 

FWIW, they used a new composer this time around.  Uematsu had done all the previous FF games, and they brought in Sakimoto (?) this time.  He had previously worked on music for the FF Tactics & Vagrant Story games.

Just put in about 9 hours and my brain is shot.  I'll put up some detailed impressions tomorrow, but if I were to sum it up in a few words, they would be:

This game is absolutely fantastic and deserves every bit of the glowing reviews it's receiving.   icon_biggrin

More to come tomorrow...

The most negative review I have seen yet eek  Thet really didn't like the game.  It sounds like they gave it an 8.0 just because it's Final Fantasy.  it seems you will either hate or love this game.  I hope I love it.

Interesting review.  It's the first one I've seen that says a lot negative about the story.   While I'm concerned that I won't care for the battle system (the demo did nothing for me), the story and characters are not much of a concern.  We shall see.

Are all EB/Gamestops having a midnight sale?  I get off work around that time and there's a couple in the general vicinity.

Mine is, although I'm not sure I'll stay awake long enough to get there.  Plus I don't really want to deal with the costume contest and other nonsense they're doing.  Will probably just pick it up when they open tomorrow.

I feel the ending is getting near for Okami, which is good, not because I don't love it to death, but because I really need to get it finished for FFXII. 

As much as I love Okami, it really bogged down for me about 25 hours in.  If they had made it 20-25 hours, it would be one of my favorite games of all time, but it's really too long imo.  As it stands, I haven't quite been able to push through to the end yet, and with FFXII & NWN2 coming out this week, it's going to be a long time until it gets played again.   :icon_sad:
10569  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/30) on: October 30, 2006, 02:20:04 PM
FFXII & NWN2. 

I'm actually braving a midnight sale to pick up FFXII tonight, and took tomorrow off so I can play all day.  It's been a damn long time since I've done that.

Just noticed this one:  Lawnmower Racing Mania 2007.  What the...?

I don't really look at review scores, I go off what I read in the review. This is an excerpt from the GI review that made me skeptical:

"These nagging doubts are distracting enough to keep Final Fantasy XII from ascending to the same heights as some of the previous entries..."

You would have to read the entire review to know what his doubts refer too, bit it is disheartening nonetheless.

I tend to take GI's reviews with a massive grain of salt as well, so that's understandable.  As Tebunker said, the reviews elsewhere have been overwhelmingly positive, so I'm awfully excited for it.

On a side note, I picked up the guide this afternoon and it weighs in a over 350 pages.  This thing is freaking huge!

A few excerpts from their review:

Quote
The cast of characters is easily my favorite ensemble to date, replete with histories, conflicts, and secret motivations that will leave you in awe.

Quote
Led by a politically charged story that instantly seizes your imagination with riveting events and an extraordinary cast of characters...

Quote
The result is fast, efficient combat that is packed with strategy and dependent on characters' roles within in the team

Quote
Graphics:  One of the most breathtaking games on the PS2

Quote
While familiar enough to earn its place in this hallowed franchise, FF XII is an innovative and artful game unlike any I've ever played.

Sounds about as balanced (i.e. great combat, graphics, & story) and positive as a review could get.  Are you sure you read the right review?   icon_wink

It would be Monday midnight, but only some Gamestops/EBs are doing the midnight release.  The game has already been shipped to stores, so unless they're really slow in getting new releases, most stores should have it available Tuesday morning.

Thanks Eddie.  I'm going over to pick up the guide this afternoon, so I'll confirm it then.

I had a roomate who had a PS2 so I just used his for playing games, but now I have my own place and Final Fantasy XII comes out in a few days.  I'm wondering if it's really worth it to pay $100-$130 for a PS2 now.  Are there still more good games coming down the pipeline?  I already have a 360 and I'll get a PS3 sometime next year when more are available and more good games hit the U.S.  The only other really good PS2 game I can think of coming out is God of War2.

Now is a better time than ever to own a PS2.  The price is low, the last couple months have given/will give us some incredible games (Okami, FFXII, Guitar Hero 2, God of War 2, Disgaea 2, etc.), and you've got an entire back catalog of fantastic games to play (I'm assuming you haven't owned one before).

I'm highly debating on getting it Monday at midnight (as I have Tuesday off). It would give me more time to play, and I could chat with all the true Final Fantasy geeks while I wait.  icon_biggrin

Wait, is it Monday midnight or Tuesday midnight it's being released?  I'm so confused.   :icon_confused:

How many people her think the collector's edition is worth the price of entry, considering that it is $20 more expensive than the Circuit City standard version? I'm going back and forth on this one.

The CE contains:

-A VERY beautiful steel tin
-History of Final Fantasy featurette
-Art gallery
-US and Japanese trailers

I don't see anything there worth an extra $20.  I will be buying the guide though (hopefully this afternoon), as I do for all FF games.

There are different levels of addiction, though.  In the example you cited, I think anyone would agree that your BIL has a serious problem.    If he refuses to see it as a problem, then he does deserve some measure of contempt.  However, I think it would be more contempt for his stubborness/willfull ignorance of his family's well-being rather than contempt simply because he's addicted.  One doesn't always come with the other.

In my case, I was/am addicted to chewing tobacco.   I haven't hurt anyone else with my addiction.  I haven't yet had any health problems due to my addiction.  It was actually a very relaxing habit that I quite enjoyed.  However, I'm quitting simply because I wanted to save a few $$ each month and I knew that it eventually may lead to some health issues.  What about that sort addiction would deserve to be "looked down on"?

Not trying to troll here, I'm honestly just curious as to the reasoning.

Gratch,

I'm glad you decided to stop chewing tobacco even if it's just because of money.  But one thing that bugs me is this statement  "I haven't hurt anyone else with my addiction"   Now , I don't personally, so I have to ask, are you married?  If you are, you are hurting someone, you're hurting your family.  Maybe not now, but possible down the road.  They are the ones who will have to take care of you because of the addiction.  Even if you're not married, you hurting the average joe, because we are spending millions in taxes to healthcare (hospitals, EMS, county services) because of people's addictions.

You make a good point, and I agree that there is possiblity of harm to my family in the future.  I've hopefully nipped it in the bud so it won't happen, but we'll see.

I was really just trying to provide a less extreme scenario than what Kobra described.   I was curious to see if the reaction towards addiction is the same regardless of the circumstances.

Quote
nicotine activates reward pathways—the brain circuitry that regulates feelings of pleasure.
And World of Warcraft doesn't stimulate the same fucking receptors?

I knew someone would start googling up a bunch of shit MISSING the point.. The point is, REGARDLESS of the composition of the addiction, I have contempt because I feel *YOU* can overcome an addiction by using your noggin.  The very act of writing off an addiction as something "Uncontrollable and Insurmountable" is nothing more than surrender to the addiction itself.  People need to stop making excuses, and take responsibility for this.

I don't disagree that some of any addiction (be it cigarettes, WoW, or whatever) is mental, but for you to say that there is nothing chemically addicting about nicotine is flat out incorrect.  Hence the links.

Quote
Of course this is well out of my field, I am just stating that is my personal opinion on all of it. I think addictive people are weak, and I have contempt for them.

 saywhat  To each their own, I suppose.  I've been addicted to a number of different things in my life, some of which were very chemical addictions and some of which were completely mental.   Some of them I've kicked, some are in the process of being kicked, and some I haven't.  It's so comforting to know that there's people like Kobra to look down on me for being 'weak'.

At this point, I'll take Final Fantasy anything for the DS.  FF III can't get here soon enough.  What I would really kill for is a FF Tactics sequel (or remake) on the DS.  Man, that would be sweet.

I have found nothing addictive in the chemical makeup of Cigarettes that isn't anymore addicting than eating a candy bar for example.  Or perhaps a cup of coffee. I just think the reason people get addicted is because they have addictive personalities that they can't overcome.

The National Institute of Health and American Heart Association (among a million others) would disagree with you.

Quote
Research has shown how nicotine acts on the brain to produce a number of effects. Of primary importance to its addictive nature are findings that nicotine activates reward pathways—the brain circuitry that regulates feelings of pleasure. A key brain chemical involved in mediating the desire to consume drugs is the neurotransmitter dopamine, and research has shown that nicotine increases levels of dopamine in the reward circuits. This reaction is similar to that seen with other drugs of abuse, and is thought to underlie the pleasurable sensations experienced by many smokers9. Nicotine’s pharmacokinetic properties also enhance its abuse potential. Cigarette smoking produces a rapid distribution of nicotine to the brain, with drug levels peaking within 10 seconds of inhalation9. However, the acute effects of nicotine dissipate in a few minutes, as do the associated feelings of reward, which causes the smoker to continue dosing to maintain the drug’s pleasurable effects and prevent withdrawal.

Nicotine withdrawal symptoms include irritability, craving, cognitive and attentional deficits, sleep disturbances, and increased appetite. These symptoms may begin within a few hours after the last cigarette, quickly driving people back to tobacco use. Symptoms peak within the first few days of smoking cessation and may subside within a few weeks12. For some people, however, symptoms may persist for months.
10589  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: My issues with... on: October 27, 2006, 01:32:15 PM
I feel your pain.  I recently quit chewing tobacco, and it's been very difficult.  One thing that helped is when someone over at OO told me that the cravings only last 7 minutes.  Whenever you get a craving for a cig (or in my case, a chaw), look at the clock and tell yourself that if you're still craving one in 7 minutes you can have it.  I've found that 99% of the time, the craving is gone when the time is up.   I'll also give a +1 to what Blackadar said.  Find ways to not be around smoke.  Throw away everything that will enable you to smoke (lighters, ashtrays, etc.).  Start paying for gas at the pump so you don't have to go into the store.  Steer clear of bars for a few weeks.  Try not to put yourself in situations where you're around smoke and it will be much easier.

Here's something that's worked for me.  It takes 21 days to make or break a habit, so set a goal of 3 weeks without a cig.  Plan on buying yourself a new game or going to a nice dinner when you succeed.  If you can, make yourself accountable to someone else.  Tell them that you're trying to quit and have them keep check up on your progress.  (hell, we'll bug you if no one else will.   Tongue)  And don't give up if you slip up and have a cig.  A moment of weakness is no reason to quit trying.

My 3 week no-chew mark is coming up on Monday, and I have to admit that I'm more than a little bit proud that I've been able to do it.  I've scheduled a day off of work to play NWN2 & FF XII as my reward.  smile   You're doing the right thing and most of us know how tough it is.

see,if number 7 has sold so well...wouldnt it be BAD business...NOT to do a remake/updated version for current next gen?(or maybe toned down version for DS)

Despite Square's repeated denials, I would be very, very surprised if we didn't eventually see a FFVII remake for one of this hardware gen systems.  Hell, it would practically give them the license to print money, so why wouldn't they do it?  I do wonder, however, if they're waiting to do one until they see how the hardware wars shake out.  If the PS3 actually ends up as gloom and doom as some are predicting, maybe we'll see the remake on the PSP or DS instead.

I came across this link and found it rather interesting.  I have no idea how accurate it is (or even what language it's in), but it looks pretty feasible.  Oh,

Japonya Satışları = Japanese Sales
Diğer Ülkeler = Other countries
Toplam Satış Rakamı = Total Sales
Çıkarılmadı = Not released

The fact that FFVII sold nearly 10 million copies blows my mind.  Even at an average price of $30 (not sure what the percentage of original vs. GH is, so let's go with $30), that's $300 million dollars from a single game.  I guess I just never realized what a huge hit it really was.  I know it's probably the most accessible game in the series and was a technical wonder at the time, but RPG's are usually not a mass-market type of game.  I'm also curious how that compares to some of the other heavy hitters in the gaming market (i.e. Madden, Halo, GTA, etc.)

I'll be very interested to see how XII ends up.  I'm hugely excited for it, but the real time system is certainly going to be a radical change in the series.  It's something I'm very skeptical of, but I'm sure it will be implemented well.

I'm sure alot of you have seen this already, but if not, this video shows off some of the character creation/gameplay.

Personally, I think I like the indoor areas more than the outdoor areas from the crappy videos I have seen so far.  Maybe the real version on my monitor will have me thinking differently, and it's possible other games have spoiled me with outdoor-type graphics.  Actually, I like the looks of the indoor stuff quite a bit though.

YouTube Video - Approx. 6 mins. long

This is one of the few games that I think actually looks far better in motion than it does in static screenshots.  The few in-game movies I've seen actually look rather impressive, while the still shots all seem very dull.  It's still not going to win any graphics awards, but most of my initial "Wow, this looks like complete ass" fears have been eliminated.

Actually, I'd love to see him keep doing exactly what he's doing.  He makes himself look like more of an idiot every single day, and keeps losing what little credibility he had to start with.  He's really the best anti-gaming crusader we as gamers could have hoped for.   Most people think he's nuts, anyone who does even the smallest amount of research can see right through his propaganda, and with the hundreds of developers and publishers, he only goes after one company (Rockstar).  I'd much rather have this nonsensical lunatic attacking the game industry (and constantly losing) than someone who is less crazy and knows how to hit where it might actually hurt.

Hell, Jack has basically become Rockstar's biggest promotional tool, and I'm sure his demented ranting and raving is helping to sell far more games than it's preventing.
