Like I said, it's just my personal opinion. Maybe I'm just too spoiled from old school FFs =P

For example my GF is moogle (and chocobo) addict and absolutely LOVES Mog. Me, I think Mog is an excuse to just add a moogle to the game and go "hey this FF has a moogle", since he could be easily replace by something/one else - nothing he does is "moogle exclusive" so to say.

She also enjoyed FFX and X-2 much more than I did and thinks the best thing about FF 8 is the story... I fully admit review and opinions are based on my experience of the game xD

EDIT: The 6 reflects what you said and I meant regarding this not being what you would expect from characters in a FF game. They can still fulfill their roles as far as story telling and gameplaying go, and yet they are lacking that FF mystic that makes us "bond" or feel that special empathy or even care towards them.

I almost cried when Galuf died in FF V. FF VI delivered a perfect job with all the main characters and Kefka is probably the best villain of all FFs. I felt pity for Kuja and I was too saddened for my own good when found out about the whole history of Vivi in IX. Heck even Sahz gave me a "if he killed himself I'm not playing anymore" feeling out of no where in XIII. There weren't any epic moments like that in FF XIII-2 for me =\

Just wondering something,
It is heavily hinted in FF VIII that Laguna is Squalls father, if that is true then where the hell did 'Leonheart' come from? was that Raines surname or what it given to him by someone else?

He chose it himself, after the lion of his ring. As an orphan, nobody knew his real last name.
An yes, in game Ward and Kiros confirm that Laguna is Squall's father.

Thanks it was really bugging me xD
Also when do they confirm it?, i know its hinted but i cant remember them actually confirming it


Did abit o research :3

As confirmed in the Final Fantasy VIII Ultimania, Squall is the child of Raine and Laguna.
It is theorized that Raine's maiden name was "Leonhart," and it was thus passed on to Squall.

Finally got my hand on FF13-2
And i got to say, its a nice game :)
Apart from Serah going all 'lightning this and lightning that' its a really nice game to play xD
Wish there was more depth in the character and more of them xD although the monster control is kinda cool with lots of variety

I never felt like the online games of Final Fantasy were really FF games. I also never had the computer for them though. (I Do now) so maybe i might think about actually trying them instead of just watching videos on them. But either way the original single player Final fantasies is the way they should stay.

I want them to redo FF7. Re-image, New music, Put voices in all the good stuff. but they never will

I personally think it felt more like an opening to either a Hack&Slash or an MMORPG. Sadly I kind of lost faith in the FF series after X. That game was way too flawed (especially story and characterwise) for my taste. I kind of liked XII though, but it didn't come close to VIII, which is my favorite.

Edit: Also, I truly hate how dragons (or whatever this creature was, seemed like one to me) are portrayed as dumb creatures in almost any game. If you see a shitload of mystic symbols appear, you fly the fuck away. Dragons are supposed to be the most intelligent creatures in any world. Supposed being the keyword, they lost this place a long time ago.

with gambits 12 was the easiest to abuse. just set up the right games find the right enemy who spawns other enemies and come back 5 hours later to see your still fighting it. kinda took grinding out (not a good thing really haha)

Bahamut is no joke (; also It's the opening of an MMORPG that'll be released for PS3~

Gotta love the music theme.
