    I agree with Michael, Final Fantasy IX is the shit and my favorite one.

    welp should have figured that they wouldn't show even 2% of what makes this game different. new x2 feature, some landscapes, new trial mode, and what a 30 second cut from one job board!?


    they missed out on  so much, even just a quick flip through a couple things would have made this 20x better.


    Gambit system, where you set up your party for their automation, things like if weak to fire use fira, if ally hp <70% use cura. things like that.


    the job boards, each character had a different job title, not to mention the fact that the original japanese zodiac game didn't have "second Job board" icon.


    mist knacks; god damn this one pissed me off, the thumbnail is from one of ashe's mist knacks but they don't even show any off.


    how about summons? by eryut village they had to have killed and recruited belias, could have summoned him for a minute or so.


    i get that they might not have total in depth knowedge but watching them auto-attack for 35 minues and hear goeff and michale slightly diss the game the entire time just isn't that fun.

    absolutely love this game, bought the original when it came out, emulated a translated version of zodiac and scrounging to buy the actual English version.

    Amazing strategy, Matt. I never would've thought to keep attacking every enemy

    I was really looking forward to this game only to find that they have, for no intelligent reason, removed the open ended character progression.....because you know, why would anyone expect a remake to have all its fundamental features remain intact.  :(


    Note to developers: add in everything new you want, but KEEP THE ORIGINAL STUFF!


    I understand now why Matt purposefully avoided showing the character progression mechanics....cuz he knew they done fucked it up and didn't want to show anything negative!


    *sighs* welp, hopefully since I only put a half hour into it, they'll approve my refund request for their broken ass pos remake. 


    Buyer Beware: this game will play very different from the original, you may consider this for the better or for the worse....but most importantly keep in mind that the developers decided you didn't deserve a choice and removed stuff regardless.  Maybe if enough people bitch and ask for a refund like me they'll get off their asses and update the game with a "Classic" mode.

      It's almost like they intentionally made this version specifically to play differently.

    wow Matt, that was some real good game play. I've never played final fantasy but your skill level colored me impressed!

    I wonder if they'll release this for PC, I don't own a PS4 but I would love an updated version of this.


    I actually never finished this when it first came out, I was trying to get the Ultimate Weapon but somehow managed to screw it up. You have to open or not open certain chests in order for it to spawn but I guess I did it wrong so I just quit out of frustration.

      FF games usually take several years. It took 10 I think 14 years. 16 years or so for FF3. I'd say probably, but don't hold your breath.

    If I remember FFXII correctly, then the game itself is a Let's Watch.

      Because it's just a re-texture of a ps2 game? Are you deaf?

      Name a remaster, not a remake, more than 10 years old that looks like a current gen game.

    I love let's watch Geoff.  Where he just finds a funny bit to roll with (ie Matt's murdering) and just keeps it going.

    Golly Matt, great work! (But for real. This was enjoyable to look at with my eyes.)

    In Lightning Returns, the third installment of FF13, you could actually kill enough of a certain species of enemy to  make them extinct. There's a limited number in the world, and when there is one left, that one becomes dubbed "The Last One" and is more difficult to beat. But you could actually feel the world become more empty as you killed everything and encountered less enemies.

    For a lets play I kind of wish you guys showed off more on playing rather than using the gambits and fast forward. Specially using the active system, and commanding on the fly with that boss feels a lot more intense than just using auto-battle with fast forward, and would have probably let you handle the stat effects better.

      Seeing how to properly set up gambits to do fights on fast-forward is itself an impressive thing to see. I was always garbage with gambits.

    This is the first time I'm seeing gameplay of a Final Fantasy game, and it looks really cool! I might buy it, but I dont own a PS4...

      They are all very good games. Some of the classics like 7, 8 and 10 are incredible games but suffer from some angsty/annoying characters sometimes. They all still offer vast and rich explorable worlds with unique and interesting stories.

      It's a great game, but I wouldn't buy a system for it exclusively. If you do decide to pick it up, definitely go for the new release of it.  The PS2 version released in the states is decent, but the new version's updates are vast improvements, between the job system making the characters feel important and not just skins for the same abilities to balancing some of the early fights to not be insanely difficult (there were two of them that were tough if you didn't grind a bit early on) and finally changing how to get one of the best weapons in the game (in the PS2 version, you had to not open 4 specific chests to get it)

    Geoff humanizing the monsters is just hilarious. I also like that Michael is a total FF nerd, like me.

      Hmm... never really noticed that they do it like that - though it does make sense that they would have to do it that way - guess I should read the description first next time xD
      Thanks for the inf (o.o)7
