FFVI works great on Vita... it's my fav with Mog, Gau, Umaro and Gogo. LOL wonky auto team. :)
i do miss the glitches you could cause by sketching an invisible character with Relm, aka reviving General Leo etc mayhem you could do on SNES.


Ok so gonna get FF VI VII and Diss heck yeah

Considering the universal acclaim for FF6, it's rather shocking how little they've done with the FF6 game in terms of remakes/spin-offs and such.

I'm replaying that one now. Started playing and realized it was another one I never finished. However, I would love to see an HD remake of 6, 7, 8 or 9. (Ok maybe not 9... I'd feel really weird about that.)

For anyone considering selling your disc copies of FF 8 or FF 9 and getting the digitals for $5. You can get about $13 before fees for selling FF 8 and $14 for selling FF 9 (going by lowest BIN price and cross checking completed listings). There is some variation though based on black vs green label and condition. I wouldn't sell them unless you can get more $ due to those variables.

Final Fantasy Tactics is a great pick up at this price and if you have a Vita make sure to pick up the War of the Lions version for the extra classes and cut scenes (as well as some fixed engrish).

For the people recommending FFVI what about the loading times? I keep on reading that it was a bad port of the original or something similar to that effect.

only chrono trigger had bad load times as far as i remember for the psone classics they redid.
but again, that's only if you have ever played ct on snes. otherwise it's probly hardly noticeable.

If they keep waiting it will be too late for SE to capitalize on FF 6 popularity.



Which FF games have you played?


actually 6, 7, 8, 9. (SNES, and then the rest on the PSX)

not sure to get Dissidia or the FF games (played Dissidia before)

Has anyone played LOTR: Guardians of Middle-earth yet? If so, is it actually playable now (without bots, preferably..), or are the servers still too empty to get into a game?


I'm curious about the same thing. I'll probably give it a go over the next few days regardless and report back. I was mildly interested in this already as a big LOTR fan but I'm not so sure about a previously-PC-only genre I have no clue how to play.

I had to download it tonight but I'll likely be playing tomorrow.

Hmm, not sure what to say since you already played them. This is definitely the best deal we'll see for the FF games outside of a compilation. While on ebay you can get discs for not much more. It looks like FF 8 finally went out of print for new copies from Amazon itself. I'm hoping they do some remakes of 6-9, but realistically we'll only see one of 6 anytime soon.

I was tearing people up on Middle Earth. Fun game.

Give me my LoL fix.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Is LOTR: Guardians of Middle-earth an online-only thing or does it have a single player mode/campaign? I hate these online only things because I can never get into them enough to make them enjoyable. I didn't enjoy Awesomenauts all that much because of that - would have loved the ability to play it as a single-player campaign though.

Online, there wasn't a campaign last time I checked.

hmm. think I'll probably get the PSP releases then.
like FFIV Complete... and Dissidia 012? (is this worth it?)

still find it a pity the PSP version of Origins isn't on US PSN

btw.. can we download PSOne Classics directly to the PSP or?

The loading times aren't that bad, if you didn't play the SNES which had no loading times you'll likely barely notice.

Correct. The PSP version is better, featuring gorgeous cutscenes, a reworked translation (though some prefer the original due to nostalgia), and a few bonus characters. The sole disadvantage is that there's a bit of slowdown when displaying the visual effects for magic, particularly summons, but that won't bother you if you've never played it before. Also, obviously, there's the fact that WotL is only playable on PSP/Vita while the PSOne version can be played on PS3 as well.

Also as a note, FFV is currently not playable on Vita.

Depending on who is in your game, it can get laggy. Usually if someone has a bad connection, they will get disconnected. Most 10 player matches tend to have 3 or 4 bots.

If you have some friends to play with online, I am sure it is a better experience. Anyone who wants can add me on PSN, same name as here.

No, just get 012. It includes the original game's campaign as an unlockable.
