I never got to play FFX, but I will get the HD remaster to finally experience it
Same here, I never got to experience FF X back in the day, only the first few minutes of it. So, I plan on making an effort to buy this HD remastered version of it when it releases. Specially since my cousin considers this his favorite FF game, from what he's told me about it in the past.
When you guys do finally play. Make sure to maximize Rikku. Then put her on Tidus's sphere tree, or Auron. She starts off weak but with her speed boosts she will attack 2 or 3 times before the other characters. She's a beast and by far my favorite character
Yeah riku...now fap fap fap
I think somebody wants some JUICE!!!!!
i loved x from the battle system to the story the only thing i didn't enjoy was blitz ball which i found a waste of time i really hope they don't add trophies needing to beat blitz ball and if i remember correctly wakas ultimate weapon is through blitz ball-_-
If you get the Jecht Shot in that small mini game when you're on the boat, blitz ball is a lot more manageable. It's actually pretty fun. I hated blitz ball the first few playthroughs but my friend told me how to get the Jecht Shot and then I loved it. Oh I can't wait till FFX HD comes out now...
well if there is a trophy about having to get all weapons then looks like were all in for a long blitz season :)
A lesson that some time Square really screwed up, and really need get back on that Square Soft ball. I consider this game to have great character background stories w/ great gameplay. Where did you go wrong Square?
I already have 2 copies of FFX and I have beaten the game twice and beside the battle system and the sphere grid where you could overpower every character I didn't particularly liked anything else about that game. And the girly approach of FFX-2 was a huge turn-off for me but I still beat it because it was a FF game and let me say that the game sucked so bad is not even funny. If all you need is a good battle system to enjoy a game then play the Shadow Hearts series. The battle system of that game walks all over FFX-2 battle system. Instead of changing clothes to access different abilities you become different type demons. On top of that it has a really nice chain system much better than FFXIII while FFX-2 doesn't even has one.
disagree. http://ffx2.com/battle " On top of that it has a really nice chain system much better than FFXIII while FFX-2 doesn't even has one"
Why do you have TWO copies of the game? A game that you've only played twice no less. On subject, the author says himself why Square's not going to learn from this; they've got too many projects in planning. vsXIII certainly isn't going to be turn based. And if you want to believe that XIII-2 pulled out of their butt at the eleventh hour and not in development when they should have been focused on XIII proper, then that means a XIII-3 or vsXIII-2 can happen on a whim. Someone else needs to step up to do something to reintroduce turn based gameplay. NIS should be doing it, but then the Disgaea series in more niche.
Shadow Hearts 2 Covenant is my favorite JRPG of all time, Final Fantasy X my second. I really hope they remaster the Shadow Hearts series.
Amen!!! Shadow Hearts 2 was my favorite jrpg of last generation. They need to make a Shadow Hearts HD Collection. Well I could live with out the 3rd one lol
I didn't really enjoy the game either. I found it pretty boring. Yeah, the story was good, i'll give it that. But the 'awesome' battle system wasn't really that awesome. For a couple reasons. The biggest one being that almost every single battle in the game has the same exact set up. There will be some type of elemental enemy, an armored enemy, and then a normal enemy. Cast opposite of he elemental, use auron or khimari to attack the armored guy since they can easily pierce enemies, and then just kill the last guy. The battle system was so predictable. I wasn't a fan of 13 either. But atleast once the game opened up for you, you really had no idea what to expect in a battle against a new set of enemies. It was actually pretty possible to die in just a normal fight. They almost became boss fights at certain points. Anyways, with all that said, I still find Auron to be a pretty awesome character, and his part in the the story made him even better. Overall though, I really just didn't enjoy the game all that much. I might still get this version though if it's decently priced. It's at least something above average to play when I get bored.
Can't wait for the game I think the lesson here learned is that Squaresoft should not have merged with Enix
I agree. But personally I loved Dragon Quest 8, and I wonder how that would have turned out... Had the merger not happened
Day one buy for me.
I like X, it had one of the best battle system in a FF game
Sphere grid system is one of the best systems in final fantasy.
Best move I've seen them make in years.
you mean.....since they released this game ten years ago :) .... was it ten years? i forgot but i bought it day 1 and ill be buying this day 1 :)
I wonder how it'll turn out though, i hope they actually put some work into making it HD instead of just up-scaling it.
The lesson that Squeenix should learn is that they need to fire Wada. After that, Squaresoft will be on track again.
As soon as squaresoft became square enix their FF games lost their spark. It's like they forgot how to make them right. They should look at what they did good (particularly) in VII, VIII, IX and X and bring it forward to their future games to save the series.
I love this game..i beat it more than 10 times...the story abuth Tidus and Yuna...is the best story in gaming ever :) Day one for me :)
I wouldn't mind if Square did the KH series in HD as well... YA KNOW!
But I still believe to this day that the turn base system in FFX was one of the best I've ever played. It was fast and it didn't turn away from its old school roots. Now release FFXIIIVs, remake FFVII, develop KH3 and Fire Wada! :)
Fire Wada first before everything else.
Turn Based batte System #1
as well as interchangeable characters in battle, I liked that.
i hope they do the same for XII.
FFX is my favorite game of all time, and if they take the series in that direction in future titles I will definitely be one happy gamer. That being said, I cannot wait to play FFX in HD, and on the Vita also! Hopefully we'll be able to continue our progress from the PS3 version on the Vita version. If not, guess I'll just play it twice! :D
Please make kingdom hearts into HD
I will never understand the appeal of FFX. I found the game to be pretty bad in all respects, especially in comparison to its predecessors, the superb FFVII and FFIX.
it was a good game but if it was the same as 7 and 9 it wouldnt be a different game..enough about 7 8 9 it will not happen atleast until ps5 because they said they would have to start from scratch and take atleast 10 years....b happy u got 2 play it and its on the store
this was a good write up and the writer pretty much nailed it. i loved FFX and can't wait to play it in HD
I'm a little confused as to what the lesson is supposed to be. Is it that Square should only stick with what has worked in the past and never try anything new? Because that's all I ever hear.
Since it was the first FF game on the PS2 playing FFX for the first time was almost a magical experience. For the first time, FF characters were voiced, and the PS2 allowed the cutscenes and graphics to look way better than what we'd seen before on the PSOne. FFX was well received at the time, especially compared to FFXIII, but I doubt if an HD remake will be able to invoke the feeling I felt playing it on my PS2 for the first time. I'll probably still get it though just so I can see Lulu in HD.
Man...there are only two final fantasy games I like Final fantasy 7 (king of rpgs)& final fantasy 8, heck ill squeeze in final fantasy 9 and make that 3 final fantasy games I like. I would not mind even if they touched these games up a little, that would just do it. But squarenix wants to go all out with crazy tech demos and what not. Though ill admit just a confirmation of a final fantasy 7 remake with next gen graphics will pretty much get me to buy my first squarenix ip this gen. Other than that they can keep the so call rpgs they are pushing.
Glad your remaking one of the BEST FF games out there! Now one question will this not be coming to Xbox? Im dont usually say this but...that would be some delicious icing on the cake!
No sir, Playstation exclusive.
One of my favorite games I've ever played, was very excited to hear this news
FFX HD is all i will be playing for the first two weeks or so, no, make that a month. I think that sums how much i love this game. On the other hand Tidus' ultima weapon quest... ~_~
I bet that damn Chocobo Race will have a Trophy. And how much do you want to bet that SE will make it a Bronze?
Meh, the race is all based on luck, they can make it a bronze as long as Yunalesca boss fight gives me a gold I'm fine with that. Cant wait to see the trophy list for this game. Surprisingly the race had tormented me more than anything.
Doosh Yoosh Wantsh Tooo Riyde Dee ShooPuff?
its too bad that they didnt include 10-2 or 12 with this :( meh, im still going to buy it though ... :)
Out of all Final Fantasy releases, this one deserved a HD remake the least. Even FF12 could do with the Bluray's larger storage space, as the sound quality was pathetic due to the massive amount of compression they did on it. Expecting SE to do anything reasonable is like asking your pets to speak seven languages. I'm certain this will be simply an upscale to 1080p, complete with the lousy textures intact, and nothing more, ala RE4HD.
God this game was epic
I disagree. I absolutely loved that game, but I will not re-buy it in HD. Many fans of old-school FF wont buy it either, and that doesn't imply they don't want new FFs to reach back its glorious days.
getting blitz ace on besaid island again xD i forget wat the overdrive method was called that I was using but it raised your overdrive bar by 20% for each mob killed and u just have tidus kill everything
