    Default Final Fantasy IX is now on Steam!

    Hold onto your little pointy hats, Final Fantasy IX fans, because after months and months of promise from Square Enix that we would see beloved Final Fantasy IX on PC... It's here! Almost sixteen years since it's original release on the Sony Playstation in 2000, IX is finally back, and joins the rest of it's re-released brothers and sisters on Steam.


    Get ready to celebrate and adventure once more with Zidane, Garnet, Steiner, and fan favourite Vivi as they take on another fan favourite.... Kuja! According to many Final Fantasy fans, this is the best entry in the series and if you haven't played it, this would be a great opportunity to do so as the game has had some minor updates; both graphical and for gameplay.

    It's a great day to be a Final Fantasy fan! I'm sure many of you will be rushing to pick this up and relive it all again!

    If the release of the game is still not quite enough to tempt you to buy it, maybe Steam's generous 20% off deal will be! Everyone loves a bargain afterall. The deal runs until April 20th (next Wednesday) so be sure to take advantage while it's on.

    I kinda wanna buy it, but I kinda already have the PSN version on my Vita that I haven't played yet, so I'd feel bad for spending money on that

    I will probably buy it because I throw money away at things.

    Does it include Quina's cooking show in which Quina fights cruel beasts just to create frog soup?

    Looks like I'll have to change my avatar and sig now. I was getting used to this Formation set. Funny that my favorite game of all time comes out on Steam on my brother's birthday who I'm currently mad at.

    Yeah, I only have 1.5 GB of RAM myself. I might still buy it, but will be mad if it's incredibly slow.

    This is good, but my laptop isn't a gaming laptop, so I'll have to check the specifications.

    If not, I'll get it on PSN because Fynn hates that I've not played it yet. What are the differences between the PSN and Steam editions?

    It's a pretty nice port so far. The graphical improvements are beyond what I thought they would be. On some occasions it's a bit jarring when there's a large mismatch between the graphics that are most improved and those not updated at all, but overall the game is just a lot better looking, I think.

    ATB timers are still slow, but in general the game feels snappier - especially the loading times are muuuuch better.
