    The PSP Remake, War of the Lions.

    Are there any gameplay differences I should know about?

    I think there's some balancing stuff, you get two new jobs, and two new characters. And that fantastic translation. It's really an improvement in every way aside from battle animations.

    Well I've started it! Only done the first fight as I started it late last night and was too tired, but I've just gone through most of the tutorial. I'm as ready as I'll ever be now xD

    That long-ass tutorial... the worst thing is at least half of them are practically mandatory to get a good grasp of the mechanics.

    It makes Quistis' tutorials look like a general chit-chat in comparison xD

    I went through everything apart from the miscellaneous stuff that covers the zodiac symbols and stuff. I feel I'll just confuse myself if I look too deep in to it.

    You really don't need to consider Zodiac symbols unless you're really wanting to get into the mechanics. 99% of people probably won't bother looking at them in detail.

    I've read through the whole battle mechanics guide and looked at the formula and algorithm for every single move in the game and I still don't bother to keep track of the zodiac signs.

    I've just made it past the Merchant City of Dorter, the fight with the archers and black mages. Took me quite a few attempts, but I got there in the end. Ramza is my Knight and I used a Black Mage, Archer and Chemist. It's quite satisfying when you manage to get through a battle

    It's a great game! Biggest tip I can give is pay attention to the birth signs of people. Play to strengths and try not to put someone in a weakens position with them.

    Dorter is a tough one for a first time player. My first playthrough I think I had more trouble with it that any other battle in chapter 1. (Well, at least once I figured out how to add characters other than Ramza to the first battle....)

    Reading all these comments makes me want to go back and play this. It's been years and years. Such a great story and fun (hard) battles.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Dorter is tough because you're up against several long-ranged enemies. The biggest tip is to spread out (so they don't hit all of you with magic) and try and close the gap. Having an archer or two yourself helps, and you can actually use Aim against the Black Mages while they're casting spells.
