  1. Secret Bosses For Kingdom Hearts 3 Secret bosses have been a major staple within the Kingdom Hearts series and Kingdom Hearts 3 will be no different. Just like everything else about Kingdom Hearts, people are buzzing with ideas as to who should have the title of “secret boss”. After all, they are considered as the most difficult bosses of the game. So, here are my personal considerations for secret bosses just for Kingdom Hearts 3. Kefka (Final Fantasy 6) {Twilight Town/Cable Town} Kefka is the second most infamously famous antagonist of the Final Fantasy series only behind Sephiroth. As fantastic of a villain Kefka was: it was the Dissidia Final Fantasy series that literally gave voice to this character and ever since that debut, Final Fantasy fans have been completely amazed by Kefka’s multi-personality of insane and completely hilarious. Kefka now deserves to shine in the Kingdom Hearts series replacing Sephiroth as a dangerously powerful secret boss who is able to use a versatile of magical and physical attacks. I believe that he should be fought in Twilight Town because the sunrise and festive colour pallet of the town suits a joker like Kefka absolutely perfectly. Whether “Final Fantasy 6 Terra” should get involved with Kefka is completely up to the developers. Gilgamesh (Final Fantasy) {Destiny Islands} Gilgamesh is a very unique character in the Final Fantasy series. His speciality is that this very being is the only character to appear in more than one final fantasy after his debut from Final Fantasy 5 (excluding the Dissidia series). His speciality is being a sword collector and what better sword to collect than The Keyblade. The scenario could be Gilgamesh traveling as he usually does and then stumbles upon Sora. Being fascinated by the Keyblade, he’d tell Sora to battle him at an area of Destiny Islands. You battle him there (alone) and if you were to defeat him then there probably would be a scenario of him fleeing through a portal. I chose Destiny Islands for this secret boss because this would probably be a far more carefree battle than the other secret bosses mentioned. Garland (Final Fantasy 1) {Game Central Station} Unlike the previous Final Fantasy secret bosses that were mentioned, this secret boss will be entirely faithful to his original roots. Why you wonder? Because in Game Central Station (the world of Wreck-It Ralph), the place where you would end up battling him would be the same location as where you would battle him in his original game. I chose Game Central Station in particular because this is the very first Final Fantasy antagonist and seeing as Wreck-It Ralph is all about video games – this is the perfect tribute (of sorts) for the Final Fantasy franchise within Kingdom Hearts. Garland’s attire and battle style would obviously match that of his Dissidia appearance as that is the most memorable 3D appearance of him and his scenario with Sora… Square Enix can think of that stuff. Ultimecia (Final Fantasy 8) {???} You may think that Ultimecia is a suggestion completely out of the blue but she has far more relevance as a secret boss than all of the other Final Fantasy characters mentioned. As knowledgeable Kingdom Hearts fans are aware, Xehanort in his youth is able to time travel. So, it makes more than complete sense to place Ultimecia into Kingdom Hearts 3 as a secret boss to fit into that theme. People can already imagine Leon really getting involved in the cutscenes that feature Ultimecia which is another reason as to why she would be suited for Kingdom Hearts 3. Although, Square Enix would have to completely re-design her attire if she was to be suitable for a Disney game but if that gets sorted then it would be fantastic to go against another time-traveller! The Headless Horseman (The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad) {Radiant Garden} Now we move away from the Final Fantasy cameos and onto the Disney cameos. The Headless Horseman is the first Disney property that sprung into my mind when I thought of a secret boss. He has all the ingredients worthy of the title. He was from a feature that barely many people from the modern day know about (just like Julius from KH3D), him and his horse look very menacing and he has the theme of darkness cloaked all over him. I decided that Radiant Garden was the best location for him to be based upon because that world in particular is very royal, traditional and spaced out. The particular location in which The Headless Horseman is battled at in Radiant Garden would either be a secluded area outside or an entirely new area. If this happened, it would be very memorable! Queen Narissa (Enchanted) {The World That Never Was} Now, Enchanted is one of those worlds which would not be able to fit into Kingdom Hearts because the plot involves two worlds intertwining with each other. Alongside this, the plot of the original movie would be far too convoluted for the game. The main antagonist is an exception to this though as she is a mixture of The Evil Queen, Lady Tremaine and Maleficent and her final form is far too cool and unique to be forgotten about which is why she deserve the honour of being a secret boss. I chose The World That Never Was because the scenery is most equivalent to the movie she transforms in. She would make her stay at a new area and would want to get rid of The Princesses of Heart so she can be the fairest woman. You battle her and once it is over, you slay her and she’s gone for good. Ghostly Rhinoceros (James and The Giant Peach) {Realm Of Darkness} If you thought that Julius from The Runaway Brain short was absurd then wait till you see this antagonist. The ghostly rhinoceros is a villain from Disney's adaptation James and The Giant Peach. Just like Queen Narissa, his world translates into Kingdom Hearts terribly, however, placing him in the realm of darkness would be perfect. Why? because he is a manifestation of Darkness. Sora, Donald and Goofy/Aqua or one of the other protagonists may encounter him as an enemy who is trying to ram them down (as angry Rhinoceroses do). Because the Ghostly Rhinoceros is formed of dark clouds, they can be really creative and make him difficult by having random thunderstorms being struck down as attacks, or alternatively, make him like dark hide and have a first person perspective battle! The New Primary Antagonist A majority of the Kingdom Hearts games tend to foreshadow a Secret Boss that is the next major antagonist after the game that they are debuted in. Examples of this would be Xemnas from Kingdom Hearts Final Mix being the primary antagonist for Kingdom Hearts 2 and Young Master Xehanort from Birth By Sleep being the primary antagonist for Dream Drop Distance. Kingdom Hearts 3 is bound to give us a reveal of the next big antagonist for the Kingdom Hearts series and out all of the suggestions that I have given; this is an extremely realistic guarantee to happen because Kingdom Hearts 3 will conclude the Xehanort Saga and this boss can start off events for the new KH. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this very extensive article. I really dug creates as an avid Disney fan to see what valuable characters was worthwhile to be placed within Kingdom Hearts 3. Obviously, it is up to the developers entirely to decide what characters should be placed within the next Kingdom Hearts series as bosses but hopefully one on this list will be rendered just for KH3.
  2. Since Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII was released, director Motomu Toriyama, lead scenario writer Daisuke Watanabe and game design director Yuji Abe have been extremely quiet. We've literally only heard from Toriyama once since then: On December 27, 2014 in a developer survey with 4Gamer.net, Toriyama said “My next title is in well underway in development. We'll be able to announce it in 2015, so please look forward to it!” The question is, what are they working on? Nearly two months ago, Square Enix president & CEO, Yosuke Matsuda confirmed a new JRPG for home consoles will be revealed at or around E3 2015. He was likely talking about Toriyama's title or simply Star Ocean 5. In an interview with Famitsu.com, Motomu Toriyama confirmed he was in Business Division 1, which is headed by Yoshinori Kitase. This Business Division structure started in December 2013. Of course this is no surprise since these two have worked together since 1999 as director & producer respectively and even before that on Final Fantasy VII in different roles. So of course, whatever Toriyama is directing, Kitase is of course producing. Other staff very likely to be working on Toriyama's title include the following: Yuji Abe (Game Design Director) Nobuyuki Matsuoka (Battle System Director) Daisuke Watanabe (Scenario Writer) Masashi Hamauzu (Composer) All four have no announced projects at Square Enix, all four worked on the XIII trilogy and the last two worked on the FFX series as well. Now the question is what are they working on? The platforms appear likely to be PlayStation 4 & Xbox One since business division 1 will have no announced projects when Mobius Final Fantasy releases very soon (looking like next month) and divisions 2 to 7 each have at least one new game in development for PlayStation 4. Is their new project related to an older entry such as X or VII? Is it a new Final Fantasy title? Is it a new IP? Is it a new Parasite Eve or dare I say it, Front Mission? Hopefully we find it out soon whatever it is.
  3. The man who has directed more Final Fantasy games than anyone else ever. Nuff said.

  5. In late 2013, director Motomu Toriyama and producer Yoshinori Kitase released Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII for PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360 and a month later they released Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PlayStation 3 & PlayStation Vita. The Lightning Saga was finally finished and a new generation of consoles had begun. Released alongside Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster in Japan was a HD Remaster Ultimania included in this was an interview with Kazushige Nojima, the main scenario writer of Final Fantasy X & Final Fantasy X-2 along with Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII and Final Fantasy XV. Nojima touched on the possibility of a potential third entry in the sub-series by trotting out the typical fan demand mantra – saying that if there were enough demand, then there could possibly be new developments. He himself would, however, like to see a sequel such as “Final Fantasy X-3.” Clearly, Nojima already has a story in mind because he wrote a novella titled Final Fantasy X-2.5 ~The Eternal Calm~ that released alongside the HD collection in Japan. Now a 2.5 seems a bit weird if there isn't going to be 3. This isn't all though, included in the HD collection is an audio drama also written by Nojima that follows up the events of the novella, however it brings zero closure and instead opens up a million possible outcomes. Sin is back, Auron has a daughter, Yuna is dating another summoner, Tidus has his own issues after his head was blown off and it sounds like Auron is coming back along with Braska and Jecht. Nojima said the usual "if there were enough demand", well Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster sold like crazy and sold over 500,000 copies in Japan alone. In an interview with Famitsu.com, Motomu Toriyama confirmed he was in Business Division 1, which is headed by Yoshinori Kitase. This Business Division structure started in December 2013. Of course this is no surprise since these two have worked together since 1999 as director & producer respectively and even before that on Final Fantasy VII in different roles. So of course, whatever Toriyama is directing, Kitase is of course producing. Of course, some people are going to think, didn't they say it wasn't in development? Well yes, Shinji Hashimoto & Kitase both said so over a year ago but this when they would have still been getting sales from North America, Australia & Europe for X/X-2 HD. Chances are they were waiting to see how the HD collection performed before beginning development. Not to mention, you aren't just going to say to a journalist, "Yeah we're developing this game for PS4 & Xbox One. Please be excited". On December 27, 2014 in a developer survey with 4Gamer.net, Toriyama said “My next title is in well underway in development. We'll be able to announce it in 2015, so please look forward to it!” Recently, Square Enix president & CEO, Yosuke Matsuda confirmed a new JRPG for home consoles will be revealed at or around E3 2015. E3 of course occurs next month and Square Enix is holding a conference which is a very expensive thing to do and with Final Fantasy XV confirmed to only have a small showing and Kingdom Hearts III likely to be the same, they must have a big announcement planned. Shinji Hashimoto also recently promised more PlayStation 4 announcements from Square Enix in 2015. Shinji Hashimoto is almost certain to be the executive producer of Toriyama's new title. In addition, Business Division 1 is the only major division to have no big projects announced. Division 2 is working on Final Fantasy XV, Division 3 is working on Kingdom Hearts III, Division 4 is working on Dissidia, Division 5 is working on Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, Division 6 is working on Dragon Quest XI while Division 7 is working on Star Ocean 5. Also, most of the core team behind the Lighting Saga is not working on any announced Square Enix projects. This includes: Yuji Abe (Game Design Director) Nobuyuki Matsuoka (Battle System Director) Daisuke Watanabe (Scenario Writer) - Same role role for FFX & FFX-2 Masashi Hamauzu (Composer) - Same role for FFX & FFX-2 And don't forget, Square Enix is releasing a PlayStation 4 port of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster on May 12-15 which boasts even further enhanced graphics. This is rather quick and they're the only developers porting PlayStation 2 games to PlayStation 4 at this stage. Not to mention, the audio drama is still included. Did I also mention Final Fantasy X has won awards recently? Final Fantasy X won a Users' Choice Award and PlayStation Gold Prize at the PlayStation 20th Anniversary event. And even more recently it won a Famitsu Award. Square Enix is also doing something related to Final Fantasy X-2 on May 25 & 26. Bit odd to do something with a game that is 12 years old and the PS4 port comes out a couple weeks before then. And before someone brings up Mobius Final Fantasy, development is likely to be finished before E3 begins so the staff from that title will likely be working on Toriyama's title afterwards. They've also most likely outsourced part of the game. Also, Yoshinori Kitase is still an executive at Square Enix, so Square Enix still has complete faith in the man who directed Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII along with Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI with others. Motomu Toriyama has also now directed more Final Fantasy games than Hironobu Sakaguchi and unless he's working on a new IP, his new record is set to be made bigger. Yes, I know a lot of you might have negative feelings towards these two after Final Fantasy XIII but you must remember the game suffered from development issues and in case you forgot they addressed all the criticisms (Linear, no towns, no mini-games, quests) from Final Fantasy XIII to the extreme in Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. And to anyone who's still saying that X or X-2 had a perfect ending, I agree completely, I love those endings, but Nojima wrote the novella and audio drama and they're canon so they really should bring closure some how. Even if it resulted in a movie like Kazuyuki Ikumori the director of Visual Works said he'd like to make one of, I'd be very excited for that too. In conclusion, I personally can not wait to see Motomu Toriyama and Yoshinori Kitase's new title. I have been waiting for this since April 2014. I personally like every single game Toriyama has ever directed or written and the same can be said for every single game Kitase has worked on that I've played. Even if their title turns out to not be Final Fantasy X-3 and is instead a new IP or even Parasite Eve 4 I will have no issue with it at all. I am excited for their new title whatever it is. Toriyama is my favourite director while Kitase is my favourite producer. Please be excited, I know I am.
  6. I asked Square Enix if there were any plans to ever add the bonus dungeons, music player and bestiary to the Android version of Final Fantasy and if not, why? This was their response.
  7. Producer of the Final Fantasy X series, Yoshinori Kitase has claimed a Famitsu Award tonight for Final Fantasy X. Yet another award to add to Kitase & Toriyama's trophy case.
  8. After last year putting out a disappointing E3 Square Enix is set to respond with the biggest line-up in their proud history. The certainties Final Fantasy XV (PlayStation 4 & Xbox One) Rise of the Tomb Raider (Xbox One & Xbox 360) Just Cause 3 (PlayStation 4, Xbox One & PC) Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (PlayStation 4, Xbox One & PC) Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward (PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 & Mac) The likely Motomu Toriyama's new title - President & CEO, Yosuke Matsuda has confirmed a new JRPG will be revealed for home consoles at or around E3, it is most likely Toriyama's since all other divisions have already announced their main projects and Toriyama himself said he will reveal it in 2015. Most likely majority of core XIII team working on it. Hitman 6 (PlayStation 4, Xbox One & PC) - only title in development at IO Interactive, Hitman 5's main events were E3 2011 & 2012. Dragon Quest Heroes (PlayStation 4) - Already out in Japan, announced for international release Final Fantasy Explorers (Nintendo 3DS) - Already out in Japan, trademarked in U.S The maybes and unlikely Kingdom Hearts III (PlayStation 4, Xbox One) - Already confirmed for D23, they might wait till then. Another teaser is still possible. Life Is Strange (PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 & PC) - First series will have two episodes left. Bravely Second (Nintendo 3DS) - No international announcement yet but the first game did really well. Mobius Final Fantasy (iOS/Android) - Most likely released in Japan by this stage. No international announcement yet but it is trademarked and the official website is available in English. Dragon Quest games (Nintendo 3DS) - Five Dragon Quest games on Nintendo 3DS. They're aware of the demand and are up to releasing at least one of them internationally. Final Fantasy Legends: Toki no Suishō (iOS/Android) - Directed, designed & written by Takashi Tokita and with indication from the man himself that there will be an international release it could find a place in the booth similar to the game it's following up, Final Fantasy Dimensions. SaGa (PlayStation Vita) Brand new SaGa game to celebrate the 25th anniversary, no word on international release. Triad Wars (PC) - There has been talk of porting it to PlayStation 4 & Xbox One. Currently in Open Beta. Nosgoth (PC) - Currently in Open Beta. Final Fantasy Agito (iOS/Android) - International release announced at E3 last year, president confirms it's still coming. Final Fantasy Agito+ also in development for PlayStation Vita. Final Fantasy VII G-Bike (iOS/Android) - International release announced at E3 last year, president confirms it's still coming. Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness (PlayStation 4 & PlayStation 3) 30% complete, international release yet to be announced. A new Mana game - Rise of Mana's producer hinted at a new game for the series' 25th anniversary.
  9. Square Enix has filed for the trademark "FINAL FANTASY PORTAL APP" in the U.S. This pretty much confirms an English release of the Final Fantasy Portal App. The best part of the app is that it allows you to play Final Fantasy VIII's Triple Triad on your smartphone or tablet.
  10. THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY CURTAIN CALL is the latest spin-off game of the FINAL FANTASY series for the Nintendo 3DS and is the sequel to 2012's THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY also for the Nintendo 3DS. It's an improvement over the original in pretty much every way. There's over 200 songs and 60 playable characters from throughout the series and now includes the various sequels, prequels and spin-offs with even more available via DLC now and into the future. It's also the first FINAL FANTASY game to be available digitally on a Nintendo platform. It's easy to get into, as you select your party (mine was Yuna (X-2), Tidus, Tifa (Advent Children) and Lightning (LIGHTNING RETURNS) and then can select a track to play. After you complete four tracks you unlock nearly the entire catalogue of songs. As you complete more songs you unlock more game modes including Quest Medleys and Versus Mode. The gameplay is pretty much the same as the first game, so if you didn't like the first game's gameplay this won't change your mind. I enjoyed the gameplay however, and had a lot of fun at times. However I feel the difficulty across various songs is too inconsistent. There is three difficulty settings to play around with however. If you played the demo be prepared for a difficulty spike, they seem to have made the demo a lot easier than the actual game. Quest Medleys has four lengths and a ton of maps for each, and after each one you play you unlock another map. I've barely scratched the surface of how many maps there are. Unfortunately there isn't much reason to play these. By completing one you unlock yet another map and get crystals from defeating the map's boss which usually allows you to unlock another character to add to your roster. However you can still unlock characters just be getting crystals one by one at random from completing songs. The songs might be randomized but I found myself getting the same songs a lot of the time. And the maps aren't anything interesting either, it adds a little challenge to it and requires you to customize your party a little but it's nothing to get too excited about. Versus Mode includes the options of facing people in battles online via random people or via your friends list, local battles and against Al. Versus Mode spices it up and allows you to interfere with how the opponent your facing is faring and lower their score and deal damage. It proves enjoyable and a good way to change it up a bit. However finding random people online to face isn't fun, you might have trouble getting into a battle with someone due to the other player not committing to a battle. You're honestly better off just facing a friend online or locally. There's also plenty of bonus content including a music player, video player and cards. You can also change various sound effects and chimes. There's also artwork apparently but I couldn't find where. Haha. There's tons of hours of gameplay in this game but unfortunately it's not worth it unless you love playing each song. THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY CURTAIN CALL is a very good game and does what it's supposed to do very well but if you don't love playing the songs there's little reason to play it for too long. 8/10
  11. LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII is the third and final part of the FINAL FANTASY XIII series and features Lightning as the only playable character, a first in the series. There are couple of times that you will have someone in your party, this includes The Wildlands with a white Chocobo, and Fang in The Dead Dunes. The Doomsday Clock will start off as something to worry you, but it's literally nothing to worry about when you realize this, you just need to complete the five main quests in order to extend the world's time to a full 13 days. I also recommend you do as many side quests as possible in order to unlock some pretty cool stuff at the end of the game. If you do run out of time, or if you can't seem to defeat the final boss you can restart the game from the first day on the Arc via New Game+ which will allow you to change your difficulty setting and keep all your stats, equipment and items. And I strongly recommend playing New Game+ to complete any side quests and trophies you missed the first time or even the end game things I mentioned earlier. Fighting some old friends and enemies as boss battles at the end of main quests was also quite fun. I honestly believe they managed to capture Lightning's perspective perfectly, and having her on her own proved that. And while I would have loved fighting alongside characters such as Sazh again or even fighting alongside Fang more, it just wouldn't have the same emotional effect. Gameplay was fun, but took some getting used too. It definitely suited the game though. The combat system from XIII and XIII-2 wouldn't have suited it. I'll admit when Lightning mentioned visiting Eorzea, I started thinking of playing FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn. Haha. I will admit I missed leveling up, and monsters only served the purpose of quest items. I'm very happy to say all my questions were answered in a good way. In the end closure was brought to every character (except for maybe a white wedding). As per usual, the ending was stunning, I've never seen such a beautiful cutscene. I'll admit I nearly shed a tear when Lightning did. In summary, this was a great game with a ton of replay value via New Game+ and most importantly an amazing ending. 9/10
  12. FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 is the sequel to FINAL FANTASY XIII, however this time you'll be controlling different characters. This time you're controlling Lightning's younger sister, Serah and a boy from the future called Noel who is the last person alive in his time which is about 700 years in the future. Serah's trying to find her sister and Noel's trying to save the future. Pretty simple right? Well that depends on your opinion of time travel. You'll be traveling to different areas in time to solve paradoxes and complete side quests. A lot of the time you'll find yourself going to the same places but in a different time. By doing this you'll obtain fragments which are used for unlocking the game's secret ending which requires every single one of them. No easy feat. Now I mentioned that you control Serah and Noel, but you'll also get a third party member. This third party member is simply a monster you've captured, and you can change the monster as much as you want. Golden Chocobo was my favourite. Through DLC you'll unlock characters from FINAL FANTASY XIII who'll take the monster's position. Gameplay is a lot like XIII's, however with a different party system it is slightly different. Square Enix even threw in paradox endings which occur when you complete something an alternative way. I enjoyed these, however I found the final two quite hard to unlock considering you have to defeat a very powerful boss with one character. Serah's friend, Mog which is a gift from Lightning also proves useful looking for things and being used as a weapon for Serah. Also fighting alongside Snow is also fun. Changing your outfit is an option, but I chose not too. Nomura's design's are too good. And if you're worried about the lack of an Easy Mode like in the English version of XIII, don't. Square Enix have included it in the English version this time. As per usual cutscenes, voice acting and music are great. And the ending is beautiful and sad at the same time. I also strongly recommend purchasing Sazh and Lightning's DLC episodes to expand upon their stories and unlock the ability to use them as the third party member. There's also plenty of DLC boss battles to fight in the coliseum if you want a challenge. There's also a ton of replay value and side quests to do. And if you're one of the people who hated XIII for reasons like it being too linear, Square Enix's 1st Production Department took the feedback and addressed it into this game. You have to purchase DLC to get the full story, but the DLC is very cheap now and the DLC isn't required to enjoy the game. Overall, FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 is another great game and has a great story with great graphics, music and more. However, I wish they made the secret ending worth all that time. 9/10
  13. The Final Fantasy series has ranked an impressive 9th in the 2015 Classic FM Hall of Fame. The Classic FM Hall of Fame is an annual compilation of the 300 most popular classical works as polled by listeners of Classic FM.

  14. hi! i wanna get back into the final fantasy series after taking a long break from it. but im having trouble with something. the platforms of the games. normally this wouldent be an issue cuz i could easily look up what system each FF games are made for but then i have to factor in remakes and remasters. then i have to find out which remasters are the most recent and if they are any better than the original. i actually tried looking this stuff up but i cant find any good sources telling me about all the remakes. as we all know, a lot of the people on KH13 are avid final fantasy fans. so i ask them a question. and maybe some might call it a challenge. for all the MAIN SERIES (as in only the ones with numbers attacked to them. not stuff like FF tactics, x, or dissidia final fantasy. but at the same time still including continuations of stories like crisis core. pls list those too) pls list what the most recent release of that specific game in the series is called and what platforms it is on. kinda like how type zero was just rereleased so you would put type zero HD rather than the japan exclusive PSP version. (but thats isnt main series so dont bother listing that) the reason im asking for this is because i want to play all games in the main series (including sequels to a specific game. again, crisis core and the FF13 games) so pls, if you can, list all main series final fantasy games and their most recent remaster or remake. i wanna play the wole FF main series, 1-15, most recent versions of each game. i tried looking this stuff up but im not too good at that and my results were fruitless. this is both a challenge, and a request. thank you for taking the time to read, and if you decide to respond, than thank you even more for giving more of your time to help a random dude on the internet have the best inal fantasy experience .

  16. I started with Type-0 because the demo needed time to download... Type-0 was really fun! It kinda throws you in there without really giving you much warning.... it gives you game-play controls then throws you right into the fight, and it is fun and easy enough to understand, however it did grade me at the end which pissed me off... I never liked being graded in a game... especially for time... like if you don't want me to go around and explore and look for items... don't make so many paths and shiny items.... If I get a D in time it is because I looked at every dead body for a Knowing Tag, so sorry for getting into the lore...(Also this isn't a real complaint, I understand that you are a cadet that should be graded at the end and this was just a preference) . Then you go to the Academy, and I spent about an hour talking to everyone and visiting every room I could before going back out into the missions. The game asked if I wanted extra help
