Damn that Square, putting that horrible, horrible, god-FREAKING-awful mini-game in FFX, and making it required to get the main character's ultimate weapon. I still have flash-backs.
I'll never understand the desire behind torturing the player that way. If you're going to create a mini-game within an RPG, remember these rules:
1. Speed. When I lose, let me try again immediatly. Don't make me have to run completly across the map (and get in about 100 pointless random monster encounters in the process) just to play again.
2. More Skill, Less Luck. If it's of minor consequence, I don't mind an entirely luck based minigame. Pick a random door, win a random prize, that's cool. But if it's a game that requires some degree of skill, then allow me to improve. I shouldn't have to play a game over and over, knowing exactly what I'm supposed to do, just waiting to get "Lucky" (Placement of balloons, birds, etc.)
3. Remember, it's a role playing game. The focus should be on the plot and character development. I bought Final Fantasy X. I wanted to experience the trials of Tidus and Yuna firsthand, watch them grow as people, and participate in a kickass story. I distinctly remember NOT recieving "Chocobo Humper VI!". Don't make me waste too much time on something as pointless as chocobo racing.
See you space cowboy ...
What a great soundtrack.

The quote if from Aladdin. Genie had just been released and was explaining the extent of his powers. Btw, Aladdin has the best songs of any Disney movie : )
A ~ for you! And ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ for everyone else.
I may contest your music preference, though. If you go see The Lion King musical, then there are some really excellent performances there. But Aladdin wins out because Jasmine was sex-ay. Unless you're a furry (shiver), then Nala wasnt that sexy.
That quote of course is the Genie in Disney's Aladdin, where he explains the ups and downs of Genie-hood! I also have to ask: Of the FFs out on the PS (excluding the rereleases of 4-6), which so far have been your favorites? I ran into some idiot who claimed FFX was crap. I had to lay the smack down on the idiot.
You really shouldn't get into the habit of beating the snot out of people who disagree with you. (Granted, if this WAS the case more often in public discourse, then I might actually watch "Crossfire." Robert Novak vs. James Carville in a no-holds-barred cage match! While it was a good game back on the SNES, the CD port rendered FFVI unplayable. Only 5 seconds to load a menu or a battle? How can I lose?! My favorite was FFVII. I was a major change for the Final Fantasy series. It was also the catalyst (ha HA!) that started a new era in gaming. FFVII brought a LOT of new players with it. I first saw it at a friend's house. He'd rented it. We put it in, and he started playing. (With the rest of us coaching, of course.) Oooh, the graphics were cool, and the battles were awesome, and OMFG!!! Barret just cussed! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOOL!!!!1111 :P~~~~~~~~~~
Seriously, I was shocked. Gone were Ted Woolsey's Spoony Bard's and Sons of Submariners.
Your quote is from Aladdin when the genie is complaining about being cooped up in his lamp for so long. Great movie.
Do you believe in the excuse most kids gave their parents for playing video games: It promotes hand-eye coordination? I never really believed it myself, but used that line all too often. Take it easy man.
|I remember reading that in an issue of Nintendo Power. I was young, naive, and believed every thing I read.|
I WIN ITS FROM TEH GENIE IN ALADDIN DUH -AdamBBB
|Take a wild guess. What ISP do you think this guy uses?|
I'm trying to collect all the ultimate wepons for the characters in FFX of course. Where is the chocobo in the calm land. I can't find it for the life of me and I'm getting sick of fighting all the fiends without finding that damn bird
|You need to talk to Svana to get it. She's usually in one of three places: near the store/save point, near the road to Bevelle, or at the edge of the gorge. Talk to her, and you'll be able to train/ride a Chocobo.|
The Last Laugh:Caladbolg. Is....so, so pretty.

We just finished off this series in Anime Club. It deserved a post.
