Chapter 13 is the worst. And the stupid taunts as you wander around. I just want the game to be the first few chapters and that's it. Don't care about chapter 9 and beyond.

WAT.

FF15:
You finally - finally - get everyone back together... only to immediately lose them all again?!

DAGGUMMIT GAME, GET A SENSE OF PACING.

That said, the whole "Ten years of darkness, and daemons everywhere." plus "Noctis must sacrifice himself for all." is actually a pretty compelling story thing.

The LPers (well, one of them) was pretty upset that Arden was just... not who he said he was the entire time, thus undermining most of the plot, but... I call that a pretty standard Final Fantasy staple.

"What, the bad guys is actually who he appears to be?! QUICK! There's now an <evil tree we've never mentioned/sorceress you've never heard of/space tick from nowhere> right here as the last boss! Whew! We narrowly dodged that bullet! Also, let's make it so the hero <was actually a moon-man/had fake memories/we saw The Sixth Sense, too was dead the whole time>!"

Even some of my favorite/some of the most widely acclaimed FFs pull things akin to this, to an extent.

FF1: The first boss you killed wasn't killed, but sent back in time to become the final boss!

FF6: Kefka's the actual main bad guy, not the emporer!

FF7: Sephiroth was manipulating Cloud (who was never really a SOLDIER, but who is really a partial-clone of Seph), the whole time!

I can't comment on 2, 3, or 9 from lack of play, or 5 from lack of memory. Meanwhile, both 11 and 14 are MMOs, so I can't imagine those have any sort of singular coherent plot, beyond a meta-plot thing, and that seems... unlikely to be "clean," as it were. I've also never played 12 (nnnooooooo) or 13, so.

... so on that score, at least, I really don't hold it against the game, and fourteen is actually shaping up to be a cool chapter.

(Thirteen was generally terrible, though.)

I kind of wish the game was just spend as many hours as you want driving around with your friends doing quests. The rest I pretty much just didn't care about, and in some cases was annoyed/frustrated with. I understand a patch fixing up some of the worse parts of chapter 13 was released so I am not sure if you are seeing that or what it originally was. I think by chapter 14 I was so done with chapter 13 that 14 was just more, "Ok, lets just get this done with."

FF2 and 9 are both games I very much enjoyed. 3, 5, and 13 I am indifferent about. 12 is one of my favorites, though 6 will likely never be dethroned as the best in my opinion. I did play a hell of a lot of 11. I really don't play or like MMOs but FF11 and Guild Wars were 2 exceptions.

That makes sense, and I agree that 13 is pretty awful, though 14 is actually pretty interesting to me.

(Though I suspect watching instead of playing makes things better for me.)

I'm watching the unmodified version, though they said they were going to go back and do the new stuff, too.

Agreed on six!

I desperately want to play 12, but I have no real method of doing so.

I found 2's not-really-level-up-system to be a really cool concept with a really frustrating execution: that's the main reason I never finished it.

That, and I never had the real game. It was an emulator given to me by a college buddy. I understand there may be a new/updated one actually on the market these days, but I lack money, and probably whatever system it's for, soooooooooo...

I recall enjoying 3 as much as I played of it (it was a fan translation/emulator), and 5 was enjoyable to me, though, similar to 4, I kind of thought the story, as interesting and fun as it was, felt a little forced, at times.

EDIT: As for number 9, it just kind of came about at that exact moment that I wasn't collecting games for life reasons. I rented it, once, and got through most of that party with Vivi, but... that's about it, and had to return it at that point.

I avoid MMOs because I know I will play them, and that... won't end well for my life, in general. I already have enough trouble doing everything I need to do in a timely manner... XD

That said... I actually purchased a book on the game, as, though I probably wouldn't ever play it, I wanted to have some knowledge/access to FF11 stuff.

I've never played Guild Wars. How is it?

(I mean, obviously, it's going to be fun, otherwise you wouldn't have played it, but... I'm just curious about it, in general.)

Guild Wars was one of my most favorite games for a while. I played it a lot, and even got the super special version of Guild Wars 2 when that released. Though I have only played maybe 2 hours or so of Guild Wars 2... The big draw for me was that I could play it like a single player game. They have AI controlled NPCs you can fill out your party with if you can't find a group, or don't want one. They're not nearly as competent as a real person but they were good enough that I could play most of the game without ever having to group up. Later they added "Heroes" which were also AI controlled NPCs but whose kit you could change out and customize. So basically better and smarter versions.

Hmm. My favorite Paizo employee would have to be that CS Rep Diego. Mainly because of the 2 most objectively true things about him. His roguish good looks, and his winning boyish charm.

I don't like to play favorites so I only have the one favorite. If I did select more than one though, it would be Rick!

Spoiler:
I tell people they are my favorite when others are around so those others will get jealous and work harder to be my favorite! None of them know, though, that I really like all of them so they're ALL my favorites!

Does Rick Kunz have an >>Ask *Rick Kunz* anything here!<< thread?

If so, it themed (ala Chris' apologize thread or Sara's praise thread), or is it generic?

Does he like Final Fantasy Tactics, aka-"the best game"?

Wait, that last one is just silly, of course he does...

Diego: what is one of your least favorite/most frustrating classes in FFT, and why?

Did you ever use the level up/down trick?

Have you tried the iOS version of FFT? If so, what do you think of it?

I don't think Rick has his own thread. That sounds like something someone with a question for him should start though!

My least favorite class and my most frustrating one are different classes. The Black and White Mages are frustrating for me because early on in the game it is really had to get them TP. They have the mana for one spell and they can contribute nothing because getting into melee gets them killed super fast. I try to learn accumulate and Gain JP Up as soon as I can but if I don't turn them into squires (they usually are the ones that start as Chemists) it takes forever to get the JP for those abilities.

My least favorite class is the Mediator. I don't hate it, I just don't care about it. The only time anyone on my team is one is the brief time my main mage is one to learn the spells on their journey to being a Calculator with every spell in the game. Cloud's Soldier class is also stupid because the abilities take so long and enemies just move out of the way.

I have not done the level up and down tricks. They have always seemed like cheating to me.

I have the iOS version on my ipad. The screen rotating mechanics are weird, but otherwise it works well enough. I definitely prefer a controller.

I keep him in my squad until he lays an egg. Then him and all the eggs get the boot, no matter how many heart breaking things he squawks at me. He had a chance and he blew it. No chickens in my squad because they turn into 100,000,000 chickens.

The ending for FFXV was neat but I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have. I was so frustrated with acts 9-13 that I couldn't really enjoy anything after them.

1) Your words of wisdom have shown me what I must do. Maybe.

For not the first time, I wish there was a more straightforward poaching mechanic. Having to fill out three of your party's slots with dragons you're going to off for parts later isn't terribly difficult, but is rather annoying.

#FFTproblems

Also, that one time you make sure to put two thieves in your party (well, ninjas with steal) and you go into battle to find four wizards ripe for the thieving (and their three animal colleagues)... only to find you out the wrong ninja and now you're stuck with three monsters, one ninja thief, and a ninja knight, none of which have healing.

In entirely unrelated news, I recently experienced my first battle-loss. I mean, technically, I won, but my Skreht crystallized, and I want to grab that holy lance, and dang it, I'm not sure if outfitting a team of lancers in the next chapter is worth all this...

La Llorona was written by Adam Daigle. I don't do any writing or anything like that for the books. I do like to think that maybe I had a small hand in it though. I spoke to one of my coworkers here about her and told him her story. He added it to his list of creatures he was going to suggest at a meeting about new creatures to put in the game (I don't recall if it was a meeting about Bestiary 6 specifically or a general 'hey we should get these monsters into the game at some point' type of meeting). I had some ideas about how she may work but I don't think I mentioned any of them to him. He asked me about it again later and took some notes. I don't know how much that may have mattered, Adam has a very solid understanding of Southwest folklore so he probably had her in mind already. But I do like to think that maybe I made a suggestion that the creative staff liked. If that IS the case I may have to go talk to someone about the Coco Monster (the Cucuy)!

Speaking of doing ridiculous things for FFT...

I'm currently in the combat where Agrias is a Guest, just before you recruit her.

I have one archer, one monk, one black mage wizard, and two knights.

I have gotten Agrias down to critical hit points (so she cowers in a corner and doesn't slaughter indiscriminately), but left her in a decent way to protect herself against anyone that might come trying to kill her; no one will, though - they're all frogs, except for one archer, who no longer has a weapon, and is charmed.

Left alive: a male knight, a male wizard, and a female archer.

The wizard and archer are reduced to 1 by the knights break techniques in all three stats (speed, attack, magic), and the wizard and knights are turned into frogs. The knight has proceeded to cower at the back of the battle.

Now, I have two women continuously cooing over, "Who's a cute widdle fwoggie; you are!" (the female knight and the female wizard continuously using Steal Heart on the frog'd wizard), Ramza (monk), Mustadio (knight), and an archer dude hitting on the "hot chick" (female archer) from the other team (sometimes literally, but I'm ignoring that for story elements), a frog'd knight in panic over the betrayal of his two allies and who has no idea what to do, and an Agrias sitting high atop a hill watching all this, and trapped between rethinking her life's choices, and admiring the efficiency of this extraordinarily weird band of people she's seriously considering joining, while learning secrets from them. And it goes on and on this way.

Why am I doing something so extreme, you may ask?

Well, simply put, the generics and Ramza are high enough of a level that they only get a single XP per action taken on anyone other than themselves, but they get ~51 JP per action. As I've long noted, if any of your allies take an action and gain JP in battle, you collect ~1/10 of that JP as well in the class your ally has whether you are - or even have access to - that class or not (this functions for Guest characters as much as characters that are already in your party).

So I'm effectively power-leveling Agrias through various classes without her ever having to spend time as those classes, or even having to level up (so random battles don't become too extreme).

Ridiculous grinding: represent~!

I mean, I'm not going to go as crazy with it as when I was younger.

I'm only getting her to unlock new classes, not all the way to level eight in each of the classes in this battle by way of the other characters. I mean... I'm not crazy. Well, okay, but I'm not that crazy. Well, okay, but I don't actually have the free time to be that crazy...

Howdy! Sorry I have been neglecting this thread for a while. PaizoCon, recovering from PaizoCon, and other personal stuff kept me away.

Congratulations to your little one on graduating kindergarten! And congratulations to you both on the belt increases!

I don't think I have ever power leveled anyone like that in FFT. I mean I do spend time just having everyone run around Accumulating, but sooner or later I lose interest and finish the battle and move on to another. War of the Lions is really neat. I enjoy the new cutscenes. For some reason it makes me a little sad that the scrawl in the Academy at the beginning doesn't slow to a crawl like in the original game though.

I have seen both The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. In fact I own The Dark Crystal. I am super excited for the prequel TV show. I hope it's good! I don't think I have ever seen Mirror Mask, or at least that title doesn't sound familiar.

Hahah! I would hope that few share my obsessive nature... for them! It's just a bit of nonsense that I felt compelled to do, once I learned it could be done. Story battles are the best for this sort of thing, as I was always ahead of the level curve by normal gameplay.

To be fair, I can do that too, sometimes, but most of the time I will grit my teeth and go back to it, instead - "the rewards are worth the work" I think, and, to be fair, they kind of seem like they are... (to my weird way of thinking).

I know! I kind of hated the super-slow crawl at the beginning when I was first starting, because I died so often before I learned how to add more characters than just Ramza (so it became this aggrivating thing I had to sit through)... but now it's just sad that it's not there! XD

I really like WotL, but I am not as big a fan of the more flowery language, and, though I really like the animated scenes, I also miss the consistency of having in-game graphic cutscenes (as those make the world feel more "real" since everything is running the same); so I'm conflicted about that. I am pretty sure I've already said all this, though, sooooo...

One thing I don't like is that, in an effort to re-balance things, WotL actually changed the job levels required to get certain classes. I get why the did so, but I'm very much so not a fan - it makes everything more grindy and does nothing to help you enjoy spending more time in the classes you've not got to be higher levels to get out of.

Bah! Get offa my lawn, dang kids! XD

No, but really, I highly enjoy many elements of the WotL, it's just a few that are just frustrating.

MirrorMask is a Neil Gaiman film, from my understanding, and I got it when it was sold as part of a "trilogy" with the other two on DVD in Walmart. I'd never seen or heard of it before, either, and it's just as quirky and weird as those two films, though it's entirely different in that, while those were both all practical effects, MirrorMask was not: it was entirely digital/CGI. Over-all, I liked the film, though, at times, it was (intentionally) too dark to quite see what was happening; I wasn't blown away by it, but that's probably because a) my brother-in-law (and his three film studio friends) made a film with similar animation quality in his garage that I helped work on, and b) I saw it way too late (I suspect the impact might have been bigger, had I seen it when I was younger).

Though it does have a phenomenally creepy/downbeat cover of Close to You (that "Why do birds, suddenly appear...?" song by the Carpenters; this was covered under Ian Bellamy's direction, or something). There are also several highly quotable lines as well, though, again, it depends on your own enjoyment of the thing in general ("Regrettable." being one my wife and I used for years after seeing it the first time; once you see the film, you'll likely know what we mean - it's not particularly comedic, though...).

PaizoCon was good. It is always a bit exhausting though, so the week after involves a lot of recovering.

This year I was in invited to be on a panel and it was the first I have ever been on. So that was super exciting, but also kind of scary. It went very well I think, but I have been spending a lot of time thinking about what I said, how I said it, and so on. I think I could have done a better job of collecting my thoughts, not dropping thoughts part way into answers, and just phrasing things better. Having had time to think about it all I think I can do a better job of answering questions and being more clear if I get to do another sometime (which I hope to do). It was a very good experience and I really appreciate being invited to join it. I am kind of dreading when it goes up on Know Direction because then instead of just the 20 or so people in the room hearing me, the entire internet will be able to!

Hm... I might have already posted that question - now I'm not sure.

Am I getting repetitive? Am I getting repetitive? Am I getting repetitive?

Anyway: the idea of the villain question is you gain their knowledge/abilities/skill/etc., but retain your own mind/goals/desires/etc. Though you could have (or, at least, have access to) said villain's memories, you'd basically be Diego (and retain your own mind/memories). You can gestalt any of your stuff that is better or the villain's. Hope that helps!

Do you have a favorite scifi setting/story set?

I believe you have a strong affinity for Star Wars (so I guess I'm including space-fantasy or science-fantasy in this!), but what would you say your top three were?

What about (broad category/less space-or-science-themed-) fantasy?

What about <insert genre of your choice here>?

I would be a bad villain all around (you did ask this before!). I feel bad about everything. I feel bad when I select a renegade/darkside/bad guy dialog choice, even though it is my imaginary character saying it to other imaginary characters. My roommate likes to tell people about the time I accidentally killed a giant space beetle on one of the planets in Mass Effect because I still get sad about it when reminded. I feel bad about killing an imaginary giant bug by accident. I couldn't be a villain.

Star Wars is far and away my favorite Sci-Fi. I am also a huge Mass Effect and Star Trek fan though. I enjoy those settings quite a bit. I also really really like Firefly. If it helps answer the question, if I could I would be an X-Wing piloting Starfleet officer. My car has stickers of the Starfleet arrowhead, the Rebel Alliance logo, the N7 logo, an Andromeda Initiative logo, the logo on Serenity, and a Zia (if it wasn't symmetrically bad I would also have a UNM Lobos logo, which like the Zia isn't anything sci-fi related, but would be a sticker I have).

Fantasy I am less invested in but I think top 3 would be Dragon Age, Golarion, Forgotten Realms, and Middle Earth.

Other genres? X-Men, and Transformers (comics, not movies).
