I agree completely, though it was revolutionary with it's ATB system and the fact that it took just a year for the team to go from NES to SNES was amazing.
Well have to to admit I am, and it is early days, preferring IV over V but that may very well change.
Seems a tougher game. I always seem to have to grind to be able to compete every time I reach a new destination
Think I am totally under-powered. Back in Baron trying to steal the airship and the random battles are almost finishing me off! And the enemies seem to be able to attack multiple times before I can get my attacks in!
It was even worse on the NES games. If you played any other version than SNES/PS1 it would be easier. Wait until your 2/3s of the way through the game lol...
Oh that whole part is a real pain, Aaron. I will say IV made me really enjoy the Dragoon class, mainly because of Kain. He just had a cool role in the story. I think it worked well. Kain's the main reason I tried it out in XI and loved it lol.
Yeah, see that's another thing IV brought, save points, FF on NES didn't have them so if you went into a dungeon you'd have to just go through it without dying which is what makes them the hardest ones (actually can't remember if III had them or not, gonna replay III after II now lol).
When I played thru III, years ago, there were no save points. No memo either.
Edit: gers, just keep plugging at it. In the early stages of the game, Cecil is basically the only reliable character. The other members have their moments, but it can be rough. With your mages, are you finding elemental weaknesses in the random encounters.
Granted, its been awhile, but usually one black magic spell will be super effective to whatever type of mobs you encounter.
but it takes so damn long for him to use them. And like i said in a previous post, the enemy seem to be able to continually attack me!
But yeah man i am plugging away mate trying to get up an extra few levels lol
Are you playing through FF II now?
Never played the 1st three FF games, are they available on NES rom's?
Yeah but FFII and FFIII are fan translated because they were never localized. I'm playing FFII from FF Origins off PSN but will play FFIII on the NES emulator on my Wii (that's pretty much all I use it for, a bunch of emulators that's hooked up to my TV).
That's pretty cool mate. Think I'm going to find me a NES emulator right now lol
It is lol I originally only bought it to play the few Wii games that looked good, but then when I learnt how easy it was to hack I went and downloaded all the emulators on it and have thousands of ROMs on there now from loads of platforms (although the N64 emulator needs an update).
But yeah I have FFI-VI on there both the Japanese and English versions.
How easy is it mate? I was going to get the emulator on my PC but i have a Wii in my cupboard doing nothing so may set it up again.
Do you use the Wii nunchuck controller when playing them? Be pretty weird playing an FF game with that i reckon lol
you don't have a Wii remote? That will do as an NES controller.
Yeah I have the Wii Remote (sorry got the names muddled up). Just think it would be weird playing a FF game with 1 lol
So I've started some of the side quest stuff. Thought I'd get Yuna's stuff out of the way, first. Captured the creatures, and got Yojimbo. Gotta go get Anima next. And I didn't miss any puzzles because of the early warnings. So far, Yuna's stuff has been fun since it's typical find the hidden Aeons stashed away.
Funnily enough was listening to this the other day http://youtu.be/dmzZrj-cLSc
Beautiful and emotional piece of music. Want FFX HD to hurry up so I can play this again!
