isnt that the same as grinding? you're just grinding card battles instead

Sorry, I wasn't trying to indicate there wasn't any grinding at all. It is a jrpg after all, so yes there is some grinding. However, if you do a little early than that's it.

FF8 is very grindy. You will grind for magic drawing, the test system is poop and is how you get your money (I almost recommend cheating on the tests to get the max money...even then the game isn't a cakewalk), some of the characters are very flat after being introduced (Selphie, That cowboy guy, possibly Quistis), the card game Triple Triad is fun but hard esp for getting all the character/GF cards, Guardian Forces are a grind and they have long animations (which you can learn boost to do more damage) and the GF will take up a lot of battle time. Trust me when I say you want Diablos early and want the Steal command....it's a must! Having the card maker/get items from cards ability on Quezacatol also helps a lot too. Diablos starts weak but by the end is easily one of the strongest....no elemental rocks!

Even with all these negatives I enjoyed the heck out of this game and I liked the story of Squall and Rinoa though i'm sure it's way more grindy now if I would play it (I own it on the PSN already). FF7-FF9 are all worth playing. To me FF9 is the easiest to just jump into and is just very classic and fun. Easily one of my PSX favorites followed by 7 and 8 for the PSX games.

I'd disagree that 8 is very grindy. If you spend a bit of time early in the game learning the card mod abilities and winning cards, you can get some mid-high tier spells way earlier than needed. That'll make combat a breeze if you understand the junction system.

Furthermore, the game actually punishes grinding. 8 is the only FF game where enemy level is based on party level. Level too much too early and you'll be stuck. Its more important to understand the relationship between drawing magic and equipping it to boost stats. This is why 8 tends to be a love/hate game. In general, if you're relying on summons in battle you should rereview your junctions.

Personally I enjoyed 8. Standard FF characters and crazy plot, but the card game and battle system are fun. Badically, if a complex level/battle system sounds fun get 8. Otherwise get 7.

Here's my noob question: gran turismo 5 xl is different from the standard, right? I may be wrong, but I thought xl actually traded in for a few bucks. It was a new guy and I didn't want to be a penis to him.

I traded the XL version in about a week ago.  The receipt shows only GT5, so looks like no difference in versions.  It was worth $1.50 base.

in his defense, I am completely awful at it. I can't believe how long the damn ultima animation is, it makes fighting stupid greater spheres take f-o-r-e-v-e-r. how anyone maxes all their sphere grids in less than 120h is a mystery to me.

You cast ultima? There's your problem. People who don't suck use attack reels.

Why do people assume corporations are inherently evil? Do people not realize if corporations can't make money, they wouldn't exist? Confucius, I always appreciate your posts and how they bring balance when others go off the deep end.

This brings up a question.. where the hell do we pick up preorders now at BBY? I preordered Bravely defaults CE online and its only available for in store pickup, not shipping. Will i have to go to the store pickup line at customer service now for it?

Yes, you get your preorders at the store pickup line now. This is true both for online preorder and in-store preorder pickup.

How does one use the coupons from the digital magazine? First time doing this...

There's a link in the email that says "view coupons". You can then either print the coupons for use in store, or each one will also have a promo code on it. Enter this code at the checkout screen online in the promo box.

Yes it works fine..... The system doesn't allow them to charge you for that free game.

I'll probably do this again today..... They can't deny you a refund and they can't charge you for the free game if you're not wanting to return it..... This is a good way to stick it to the man

Yes, stealing is always a good way to 'stick it to the man'.

For those having issue getting the 10% extra, try telling them to add your reward zone info before hitting total. That usually works for me. (The 'add rz' button should be at the bottom of the screen.)
