Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age (out now)

Let's talk about anything about video games, no matter what platform it is. What is your favorite game? Who is your favorite character? What are the recently released games? What is DLC (downloadable content)? How do I beat this boss? How do I set up my team?

Made me realize again how huge this game is. fast forward is lifesaver, abot yata ng 150+ to 200 hours if complete lahat ng wala fast forward.

Story-wise. Pupunta na lang ako sa last location and finish it to finish the game. This game has alot of fetch and kill quest that minsan di ko na alam kung san ako pupunta. Yung tipong I would be standing at a town for 10 minutes kasi di ko na alam kung ano gagawin ko. That would have been a good thing nung bata bata ako pero parang I'm just wasting my time lalo na at singit lang ang game (2-3 hours in the afternoon) during weekdays. Also, there's alot of people to talk to but most of them are useless NPC talking.

Story-wise. I'd say it's not FFX by a wide margin. Sometimes I don't know why I'm going this way. I'm going up a mountain and I could not remember why and where does it fit in the story. It seems I'm always complaining about an FF story but I kinda liked FFX and FFXII is as muddles as FFXV. I know that the director made Vagrant story and it inspired 12 in a way pero I feel like may galit yung director because Vagrant Story didn't sell well so he forced players to play a spiritual successor. The story felt forced. Yung parang langaw lang yung party compared sa story, yung tipong napaka minor nila that nawala relatable kaya wala ka empathy for them. You kind of feel sorry for the FFX party, with FFXII eh parang wala lang, Live or die, right or wrong choices, life must go on. You know? Lastly, the main protagonist, Vaan, is the lamest protagonist in FF history, so lame that even his party makes jokes at his expense.

Is it me pero panget yung graphics? It's like a step back from FFX, parang more of madumi mukha ng mga tao rather than shadowing. Even the CGI can't compare to X. It's sooo a poor job that I felt half-assed pagkakagawa sa game na to.

^That explains alot.

For now, I'm just wandering about and trying to reach at least level 90 (currently averaging at 65). That's the goal but if magsawa na ako eh bago tatapusin ko na.

If I could request a feature, just one is sana may pre-set na gambit so I can load a pre-set gambit for hunting, looting, and boss fight, pre-boss fight routine, rare game fight, status illness fights etc.

I gained momentum this weekend and I started to think the plat might be possible after all. That momentum stopped when I met Yiazmat. THAT is one tough nut to crack. So I'm off doing anything else for the time being.
