Because I never finished my first one, and I seem to have lost the file...Bah, no matter.

Observations thus far:
  • These cutscenes are damn pretty. 360 and such need to take notes.
  • Reks is much more awesome than Vaan, but Vaan is snarkier, which I find lulzy.
  • The combat system seems to be aimed towards making me as bored as possible. I want something a little more actiony, where the choices I make have much more effect, and in real time. Not just watching my guy hit wolves without a chance for me to interact besides selecting targets.
  • Vayne is one smooooth bastard. Still surprising that people fall for his bullshit, though.
  • Penelo's an annoying bint.

More to come. :u

Couldn't agree more with the comment on the battle system, which combined with the fact that everything else gets boring eventually firmly places FFXII in the same bin as plenty of other bad games: the trash bin.

Battle system is insanely boring. That coupled with being poorly leveled due to confusing system caused me to die a lot at a certain point so I quit.

The game looks great graphics-wise, though.

I did well for the story, but I constantly jobbed for side-quests due to my low level and the fact that I had used Balthier and Fran in my party, the two lowest-tiered characters.

I can't bring myself to start it up again, but I can't ring myself to delete the damned save file...

But... if our leaders actually reflected the wants of the people... then we'd be a democracy, and that's just gross.
Stalin was that **** guy who pops the ball during a basketball game and ruins it for everyone.

So I'm spending this intervening time by grinding lots, as this game is wont to make you do. I'll update again when I've actually gone through the story more.

Sweet Jebus I've spent more time grinding in this game than I ever have playing a Disgaea game.

And it's boring.

Y'know what? **** it. I'm done. This is over. I cannot play this game any more. Not for a single damn second. This game is too **** BORING. It's like an MMO, but without anything that actually makes an MMO good. There's no immersion. There's no connection. AND PRACTICALLY ALL OF THE GAME CONSISTS OF GRINDING. I hereby dub FFXII worse than both FFII and FFVIII. Officially. Forever.

It's definitely worse than FFVIII, I dunno about FFII. Because of how FFII is set up grinding in that game basically consists of killing yourself.
