  1. Final Fantasy VII Remake Review & Final Thoughts (New Edit)

    *TL;DR: I decided to redo my entry for Final Fantasy VII Remake. I did this because I read another review from another member of EoFF, and it inspired me to do better. Also note, a lot of these sections will be incomplete because I need some time to digest what I want to express here.

    Here's a brief summary of what I thought of Final Fantasy VII Remake. Overall, I enjoyed the game a lot but there were a few gripes I had with the camera controls and battle mechanics. The number one ...

  2. Finally beat Final Fantasy VIII

    Hello everyone,

    I'm here to catch you up on my journey through the Final Fantasy series! I've beaten it about 2-3 times before on PSX & PC. My PC playthrough is actually what led me to this forums. Playing them 10+ years apart had piqued my curiosity on FF8's plot and I came here to look for answers. I think after some time I was satisfied and I took a hiatus from the forums. It wasn't until I got into streaming that I decided to record myself playing through all the Final Fantasy ...

  3. Finally beat Final Fantasy VI

    OKAY!

    I'm pretty happy that I was able to finally beat Final Fantasy VI. Overall, I'm starting to see reoccurring themes throughout the series. I think FF7 borrowed heavily from FF6 and I'm actually at a crossroads between the two games. I can say that I enjoyed FF7 more but I think it was because of the time I played it. I think it has more to do with the fact that when I played FF7, it was just released.

    So here are my thoughts of FF6:

    Some things I liked: ...

  4. FF6 progress

    I'm towards the end of Final Fantasy VI, I still have a few loose ends to wrap up. Currently trying to even out my character's levels so that they are all around level 40. My main squad reached LV40ish but it turns out I am going to need to split the party up if I am going to stand a chance against some of the dungeons that require to split your party. I'm debating on whether going all the way to fully equip my party before the final confrontation against Kefka.

    If I finish FF6 I would ...

  5. Just beat Final Fantasy V

    Caution! Potential spoilers ahead if you have not played through Final Fantasy V yet.

    Woo!

    I have just beat Final Fantasy V at 39 hours on 12-2-2019! There were some frustrating battles but I found that mastering the jobs made it easier. It seems like this game is more about the combinations of jobs you pick and what skills you mastered. It really reminded me a little bit of Final Fantasy VII except instead of materia, you get jobs and job skills. I wasn't able to max out ...

  6. Finally beat Fantasy IV

    Good news everyone!

    I finally beat Final Fantasy IV. After about 20+ hours of frustration, I finally caved in and looked up guides on the augment mechanics and that helped immensely. Despite my frustrations, I think I've come to appreciate the remake's new mechanics that doesn't let you power level to beat bosses. Here are my take aways from Final Fantasy IV (remake):
    • I got a kick out of the impact status effect spells
    • Having to actually watch the patterns of boss fights
    ...

  7. Final Fantasy IV

    Today's session was the roughest by far during my journey through all the Final Fantasy titles. This next bit might contain some spoilers.

    Okay, my troubles began when fighting Golbez in Underworld. At first, I had no idea why some attacks were healing him while others were damage him. Once I figured that out, I had a hard time keeping enough MP on Rydia to keep summoning Eidolons to do real damage against him. While his attacks weren't super crazy, they were enough to keep my party

  8. FF4 Update

    Another quick update:

    I've successfully beat FF3 and now am playing FF4.

    Story-wise, I feel FF4 is more put together, and the story paces pretty quick. I don't want to reveal any spoilers (I doubt anyone here hasn't played the game but better safe than sorry). Unfortunately, I have to play the 3D versions on Steam since I am trying to stream the process. I probably could find another way but I found them to be less than ideal. I'm not a big fan of the 3D version at all. ...

  9. Just a small update

    Decided to tackle all the Final Fantasy main series and maybe some of the spin-offs. I've beaten FF1, FF2, FF7, FF7: Crisis Core, and am now working my way through FF3.

    The plan is to play FF1-FF15 (excluding the MMO versions), plus spin-offs, and write down my thoughts on each title. Since I've already started I'll leave a few quick comments for FF1 & FF2.

    FF1 - Once I got used to the game, it wasn't so bad. I think my final team ended up being Knight, Ninja, Black ...

  10. Digital Immortality

    If you could transfer your mind digitally into a different host like a bio-engineered body or a synthetic android, would you do it? If you watched Netflix's "Altered Carbon", the concept's very similar if not the same.

    Let's assume the procedure is as common as buying a vehicle with price ranging from budget prices (synthetic) to lab grown clones. Pricing would be $15,000-$100,000+, for the new hosts and the cost of transferring digitally.
