That is how he always looked, lol. I can't stand Tidus, but that is just me.


He definitely looks majorly different when in a scene with the Detailed Facial Textures. Tidus was always one of my favorites though, probably because FFX was my first Final Fantasy, and also because I can relate to his personality in some ways.

This. I've probably put in more time playing Blitzball than any other mini game on a video game. Even after getting the special items I'd just keep playing it. Half the time I played the game was spent in Blitzball.

If Square Enix made a game specifically for Blitzball, set it up like MLB The Show or another sports game with your regular game, season mode, modes where you have certain funding and can draft players, trade players, etc. I'd buy it. They should name it. Blitzball: Best Sports Game Ever '13.


I couldn't agree more. Would be the only "sports" game would have purchased since 2006.

Would prefer if it excluded EA though. Not sure why they couldn't mock a coverart with SquareEnix as the publisher. But hey, it's more than what I've done.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

Considering how terrible square is at life and how greedy their 16 dollar ff ports on iPhone is, no way they do cross buy


Well, we have to take into consideration that FF is still a huge name, here and in Japan. Sony could encourage square to do so, because having cross-play of FFX could convince more PS3 owners to pick up a vita.

Hell, in Japan it's almost a certainty that it would.

Why would one even think this was a pricing error when 98% of the HD collections launch at $40 and lower?

Gosh $40 for only two games? Well I guess I'll wait for a price drop.

Just two games? These are pretty substantial titles which will easily amount to over 150+ hours of gameplay. This probably took them more work to port over than the average PS2 title. FF X HD was worth the original expected pricetag of $40. Throwing in X-2 is a great bonus

On the fence with this one considering i still have the ps2 versions. If the visiuals are a well enough improvement, may pick this up.


Since it's the International version with the extra content, I'm definitely picking it up, even though I still have both ps2 versions.

40 is pretty standard for these collections.

It is not just you. Imho Tidus is one of the most irritating main characters in a Final Fantasy I can think of.

That said FFX has my favorite combat system in a Final Fantasy game. I played the hell out of it back when but I never got around to X2. What is the consensus on it, worth the time or just fan service?

Besides the terrible story, it brings back the class change system. IIRC, you can even swap classes mid-combat. Which is a rather cool function.

The battle system is totally different from X, it's fast-paced with an emphasis on changing character classes on the fly-- kind of a proto-FF13 really. What people usually have a problem with is the tone, which basically amps up the silliness and triviality. But the gameplay is solid.

I had an ex gf who was obsessed with these games, but I never played them. She had like statues of all the characters and everything. I'm excited to see why they remastered these games as opposed to others, and why so many people liked these two games.

Man I miss her sometimes, she was a freak in bed, but also a freak in the head. Yeah I know, cool story bro.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

I myself would have personally liked to have seen the PS1 classics (I know, 7 isn't gonna happen anytime soon.)

Thanks for the insight, does not sound like my cup of tea so I might just let my memories be. FFX still looks amazing in my head so I am probably not missing much.

Yeah, HD versions of the older games would require a significant amount of extra work, unlike this PS2 era games that just need their textures smoothed out and maybe a little touch up here and there.

Rumor has it you can go online with Blitz in this one, just a rumor around some gaming websites though. Hope their is some truth, Blitzball was the best

There's no way they're selling these for $20/each on the Vita. That's making the assumption that they're considering the games as equals. You probably have about 5x's as many people interested in X than X-2. They'll probably sell X for $30 retail and offer you X-2 for $20 via digital download.

Cross play is probably totally out of the question. I mean, we're talking about a company who's make a large part of their money over the past decade from re-selling us games we already own. Let's see, I own FFIV in the following formats:
SNES
PSX Origins set
GBA re-release
DS remake
Wii "After years"
PSP "ultimate" edition
PSP "ultimate" edition digital copy (for my Vita)

I think the only major release I don't own is the Wonder Swan one. I suppose I'm part of the problem letting SE gouge me, but still. THIS is why we're not going to get cross play.

I figure its worth the early preorder just in case the game is over $40 msrp. A month ago no one had any idea X-2 was going to be included and amazon does not charge until the game ships. worst case, I cancel my preorder if something better pops up.

No. You getting old marked the death of the Final Fantasy brand for you. You just grew out of the Final Fantasy target audience.

Everybody knows the Final Fantasy brand died with VII. 3D graphics? Pshaw. And they abandoned Nintendo for a Sony system? BETRAYAL!

And turning 16/32-bit into 3D models isn't? It is totally plausible.

That and Cloud was the worst main character of any FF game.

I never said it wasn't, but the less time and money Square has to put into these ports the better it is for them. Lets face it, the whole concept of the HD collection is to make money off of a game that the dev knows will sell without the cost of programming an entire new game from the ground up.

Luckily for Square, the modeling and art design in these games was so high quality in the first place that all they need to do is up the resolution and it will look pretty damn great on an HD television. Squint a little and you might mistake it for a real current gen game. :lol:

When they get around to Final Fantasy XII, it's going to look unbelievable.
