  1. WARNING: Mature Strong Language involved. Introduction Theme Song: https://youtu.be/cAhyt2D9B3A. Tagline I: "...A Fantasy...Set...in Space..." Tagline II: "...Destination: The Milky Way, Location: Planet Earth, Mission: Relocation." Synopsis: "...It is the year 3020...over 1000 years ago, Humanity was forced to leave both Planet Earth and the Space Colonies orbiting around it, due to the sudden appearance of a very both strange and mysterious virus plague that the Humans dubbed, as the "Scream", for whoever was infected by the Scream would slowly turn mad and eventually, scream out in unbearable pain until finally, at last, they would simply...die out, one, by one... In order to save the future that are the next generations of Humanity, the Humans fled from their home-planet and their Space Colonies, boarding giant spacecrafts that they had made and they had called the "Titans", named in honour of old gods of their Planet's very ancient mythologies and you see, by using those said giant spaceships, Humanity had left behind their home system of The Milky Way and had traveled across all the way to various other systems, such, as The Horsehead Nebula and/or The Andromeda Galaxy for examples and had set up both new settlements and new Space Colonies there, knowing that Humanity was now free to begin Space exploration across other Planets and seek out new life, new civilizations, new cultures, basically new everything that they could add to their own history, however...Humanity still longs dreams of returning back to its own system, its own, home... Before Humanity had settled cozily into their new homes, there were those that did not take well to their sudden arrival and thus began the ancient "Settlement War", between the Humans themselves and all other "Alien" races, such, as the Human like beings, the "Space Elves", the Humanoid Lion like beings, the "Li" and finally, the Aquatic like beings, the "Aquarians", nicknamed the "Aquari" for short...the battles between the four intergalactic races was long and everlasting, until eventually, one battle where the Space Elves, the Li and the Aquari all banded together, as one despite past differences with one another, trying to drive Humanity back out of their home systems resulted in lots of tons upon tons of casualties, that battle was proclaimed, as the "Endgame", as it had served to finally end the war between the four races living in space and finally create among them a united colony of people that could potentially join hands with each other and help make their shared entire universe a better place... However...there were those among the Li who still did not agree with Humanity's presence among their kind and so they broke off into a rebellious warmongering faction, naming themselves the "True Believers", as they unlike everyone else do not "fall for the lies of Humanity", thus beginning a civil war between the peoples of the Li and an intended conquest over Humanity, this had led to one final war that is still currently ongoing to this day, it is known, as the "Bloodbath", the war has last for oh so very many years until eventually, it seemed like everything was about to come to a close at the Planet of "To", where here, a young Human upstart rising through the ranks rookie soldier by the name of "Ewan" without realizing has just started taking his very 1st step, into a larger world, a larger galaxy, some might even say...a larger "Fantasy"... Here start the Chronicles, of Humanity's Voyage home, back to their beloved Milky Way system and most especially, their Planet Earth...it has begun, the prophesied time of awakening, what we, of the secretive Moogle race believe to be...the "Final Fantasy", Kupo!" Main Theme Song: https://youtu.be/xSXr99WhxDo. Prologue: Planet To-Where War Ends and War Starts Again: "...Soldier...Soldier...SOLDIER EWAN! DO YOU COPY ME!?" "...Huh? wha? !? S-SORRY SIR! YES SIR! READ YOU, LOUD AND CLEAR!" "...Good! that is very good! your quick on the uptake, Soldier! now listen up you maggots! i ain't going to be responsible for what happens to you out there, right now we're facing our last stand against those Lion bastards, the Li and i will tell you now men, they will show no quarter, they will show no mercy, guys like you fledglings, they'll gobble you up and eat you for breakfast! now listen up, cause i won't be repeating myself again after this! ahem: The High Council of the Four Interplanetary Races-"Dumont" have assigned us dogs of the Human militaristic force-the mercenary task force squad "Zantetsuken" to clean up the messes of those Lion wimps, the Li by wiping out their renegade rebel faction, the "True Believers", as they call themselves...APPARENTLY, those ass wipes can't find it within their goddamn minds to accept us "Puny" and "Feeble" Humans without fangs, claws or manes just like they have so now, we're going to show those "Believers" just how "Puny" and "Feeble" we Humans really are! WE'RE going to show EVERYONE that we ain't just dogs to be used in battle both whenever and wherever the higher ups feel like sending us out towards at, no, we ain't just dogs...WE'RE WOLVES! AND WE BITE! YOU GOT THAT YOU LITTLE SHITS!?" "SIR YES SIR!" "I-CAN'T-HEAR-YOU!" "SIR, COMMANDER CID, SIR!" "Right, now get your asses out there before i have to kick them, remember, we ain't doing all this for honour, guts or glory, none of that shit...what we're doing here, why we're doing this, is so we can get PAID! paid in cold-hard-cash, you feel me? DO YOU HEAR ME!?" "YES! COMMANDER CID SIR!" "Alright! that's what i want to hear now go out there and make papa bear Cid proud! don't come slouching back if you're dead or you haven't earned your pay, MOVE OUT! HOORAH!" "HOORAH!" "Zantetsuken...FORWARD MARCH! MOVE OUT!" "CHARGE!" "..." "Finally, a real mission i can get to prove myself on, don't you agree Ewan? ...uh, Ewan? hello? Earth to Ewan!" "...Earth...huh? W-WHA!?" "Come on Ewan! the fun's already started, everyone has already marched out ahead in front of us! come on! we can still catch up to them! let's show those Lion bastards what we're made of, huh, CHARGE!" "AH HEY! WAIT! ...tch! dammit...dammit all to hell! CHARGE!" "...It was the Planet To, it was rumoured that here would be located the True Believers' primary headquarters, in an effort to finally take them out both once and for all, the High Council of Dumont have sent in a group of mercenaries to sneak into their main base whilst the regular army that acts under the direct orders of the High Council will distract the Believers, giving the mercenary squad Zantetsuken enough time to plant bombs within the base, thereby blowing it sky high, it is intended...as a Kamikaze suicide mission where should any of the mercenaries survive, they will be bestowed with the highest of honours by the leaders of the High Council in person and will especially be rewarded handsomely, however, for Ewan, it was not about making money for himself, rather, making...a difference, he believes that by acting, as a Soldier can he help innocent lives avoid more bloodshed then they have already suffered and he can help himself make one step further to fulfilling his dream, what that dream is...i really don't know, Kupo!" (To be continued.).
  2. The Final Fantasy Portal App is now a year old and to celebrate you can download the Portal Version of Final Fantasy II for iOS & Android for free until Valentine's Day. The Portal App version of FF2 like FF1 is identical to the regular version however. Final Fantasy & Final Fantasy II remain two of only three mainline games not available in HD, the other being XII.
  3. The Game Boy Advance collection of Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II is coming to the Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console in Japan on January 6.
  4. Just like Final Fantasy back in February, Square Enix has finally updated the iOS version of Final Fantasy II to make it a universal app. They have also fixed some bugs in the iOS version for the first time in over two years. The same can also be said for the Android version. Square Enix has finally fixed a bug that made the game crash whenever the device's back button was pressed. The updates for the iOS & Android versions of Final Fantasy II have also introduced a menu button and a brand new movement system. The iOS version of Final Fantasy has also been updated with a bug fix.
  5. I played the Android version of FINAL FANTASY II which is a port of the iOS version which is a port of the PlayStation Portable remake. I reviewed this game not too long ago but after completing the game I am forced to re-review the game due to my view of the game changing massively. The game has a hellish start, if you walk the wrong way you'll die and it takes a while to get used to the game’s “level-up” system. Eventually though you get to a place where you can enjoy the story and in the most part just roll through all the battles. I hardly ever died in this game. It’s one of the easiest FINAL FANTASY games I've ever played. I was annoyed at the lack of good things to buy in this game. You can buy an Elixir but you have to pay 50,000 gil. The game’s final dungeon will allow you to easily make over a million gil but of course you can't spend and if you could even if you could all you'd be buying is overpriced Elixirs. In terms of music, it’s another classic score by Uematsu. Graphically this game is quite nice for 2D. The PSP remake’s graphics hold up quite well on Android smartphones and iPhones. Sadly it will not look good on a tablet since the game like the first one is only available in SD unlike III, IV, V and VI which were all remastered in HD. The touch-screen controls are pretty basic but they work well enough. There is no gamepad or cloud saving support. Nor any achievements. Unlike the shocking Android port of the first game, the bonus dungeons, bestiary and music player have been included. The story is quite good, especially for the time it was originally made. There’s also a story called Soul of Rebirth after you complete the game. It’s a short story involving characters from the main game. It was a very nice touch a decade ago in the GBA port and like the main game the PSP remake has been very faithful. This port is a bit buggy though, so keep that in mind. FINAL FANTASY II is actually a good game. Like FINAL FANTASY, the definitive version of FINAL FANTASY II is the Anniversary Edition which were both developed for the PlayStation Portable and can be played on PlayStation Vita if you don’t live in North America. If you don’t own a PS Vita or PSP, the iPhone and Android versions are fine choices but like the first game you might be better served waiting for the likely Nintendo 3DS port. Regardless of which of the three, likely four versions you choose for the Anniversary Edition you'll be able to enjoy a good game. There's also the Game Boy Advance and PlayStation ports of the WonderSwan Color remakes but I'd recommend sticking to the Anniversary Edition. 7/10
  6. I asked Takashi Tokita, the head of division 9 if there any plans to update Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II. Unfortunately, there are not. As a result, Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II remain two of the only entries in the main series not playable in HD alongside IX, XII, Crisis Core, Dirge of Cerberus and Revenant Wings.
  7. FINAL FANTASY II is the sequel to the original FINAL FANTASY. Both were originally developed by Square’s A-Team (the team that made FINAL FANTASY I, II & III) for the Famicom/Nintendo Entertainment System. It was later remade alongside the first game for the WonderSwan Color before being ported to the PlayStation and later Game Boy Advance before receiving a second remake to celebrate the 20th anniversary on PlayStation Portable. In 2010 it was ported to iOS and in 2012 to Android. I've been playing the Android version. Unfortunately, I wouldn't even call this a solid game. The “level-up system” is so broken it’s laughable. Square’s A-Team tried to reinvent the level-up system and failed. You have to take damage in order to increase your HP. This is just the start of this horrible system. Grinding is normal for a JRPG but you're going to have to do it even more than usual and even then it’s painfully boring. For 2D graphics they're quite nice, but it’s nothing amazing. They have not been remastered in HD yet, neither has I. One of the few main entries left in the series yet to be remastered in HD. In other words if you're playing this on a tablet it’s going to look like crap, it’s just a small square surrounded by black. There’s also bugs. A big one being if you press the back button on your smartphone or tablet the game will crash. Thankfully, the bonus dungeons, bestiary and music player have actually been included this time around but you'll probably never use them since you need to complete the game to unlock the dungeons and use the music player. The controls are really basic as well, in the HD remasters of III, IV, V and VI, Square Enix’s business division 9 took the time to remake the controls and parts of the user interface even the bonus dungeon in FFIV was remade. For II and I they did not, the controls are still the same as the PSP versions. They just threw on basic, ugly touch screen icons. It’s like they didn't even care about the ports of I & II but considering how awful II’s gameplay is I can't really blame them much. Obviously there’s no gamepad or cloud saving support either. And of course no achievements or auto-battle features. The HD remasters of III, IV, V and VI have continued to receive updates from division 9 years after release with requested features added and the games improved even more. But I & II have been forgotten about despite being the worst state of all. Since they're finally nearly done with various other iOS & Android titles maybe they'll get back to these but can't say I blame them either way, II in particular is pretty bad. The music is good but nowhere near the best in the series. From what I've played, the story is pretty good but the shocking gameplay is making it hard to keep playing. It’s hard to keep track of what to do in this game as well. The key word system is just weird. And if you walk the wrong way early in the game you'll instantly die due to facing very powerful monsters. And the random encounter rate is of course very high. All in all, FINAL FANTASY II is a bad game and one you should be careful about purchasing. Do not purchase the Android port. I'd suggest getting the PSOne Classic or the PSP version but don't pay too much. Or the GBA port if you can find it cheap. There is most likely a 3DS port on the way as well so you might want to wait for that. I adore this franchise and company but this is just a joke, I'm glad this was a once off as FINAL FANTASY III was a lot better than even the original and then the franchise took off with an amazing streak of some of the greatest JRPGs of all time. 5.8
  8. Been dreading this a bit because of the "level-up system". Anyone got some tips for Final Fantasy II? I'm playing the Android version which is a port of the iPhone version which is a port of the PSP remake.
  9. “Ultima” has always been around in the Final Fantasy series, and it’s almost always the strongest spell in the game. However, it didn’t exactly start out that way, and a programmer recently blogged about a discussion he had with Hironobu Sakaguchi on why Ultima was useless in Final Fantasy II, which is where it was first introduced. The programmer in question is named Hiromasa Iwasaki, who worked on various games such as Ys I & II, and various others during the Famicom and Game Boy era. As some of you may know, when Final Fantasy II was originally released on the Famicom, one thing that was quite a popular topic at the time was the Ultima spell, which was very difficult to acquire, but was also practically useless. Just to give you an idea of how useless it was, in the NES version of the game, Ultima was initially meant to increase its power relative to the level of other spells the caster had, but due to a bug, it caused the spell to do just around 500 damage at the most on a single target. Baffled by how the series’ most powerful spell ended up being so weak in its debut game, Iwasaki and other fellow developers spoke with Hironobu Sakaguchi, who directed Final Fantasy II, about how that ended up happening. At the time, when Square tested the game out and saw the Ultima bug, it was definitely a problem, and Sakaguchi said “How did this happen? Fix it.” However, the person that programmed it replied with the following statement: “All of that legendary stuff, it dates back to an age that didn’t even have proper techniques. If you were to look at such things now in the present’s point-of-view, it would be natural that they look inferior. For this reason, it’s a given that Ultima’s abilities would be bad.” “As for those who struggled and ultimately acquired it only to find out that it’s useless… well, that’s something that often happens in life. So, I’m not going to fix it!” Naturally, Sakaguchi was rather irritated by that reply and said “whatever, just give me the source,” so he could fix it himself. As it turned out, the programmer had ciphered the source, so he ended up being the only one who could do anything with it, and it was just left the way it was. Iwasaki says that he can’t say for sure whether the story from Sakaguchi was the truth, but either way, it makes for a good laugh.
