You know, I’ve only reviewed one film on my blog before. Nautrally because this is a game review blog. I make exceptions for game related films. Somehow I forgot that I’d seen Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Not just once but multiple times. So it’s long overdue but here’s a review.
Console: Errr well it’s a film based after the events of PS1 success story Final Fantasy VII What does it have to do with FFVII? It’s set after the main events of the game and the main characters of the film are also the main characters of the game. Worth watching? I like it. If you don’t know FFVII it’s … weird but still fun. If you do, why not.
Hi all! I’ve commented a few times before that Ireally like the music from final Fantasy IV. I also named most of my party from FFVI after FFVI characters. Yet I’ve never played this game. Until now. Ladies and Gentleman, Emma finally reviews Final Fantasy IV.
Console: PSP (Yes, that means I’ll be reviewing “Interlude” and “After Years” at a later date Compared to others in the series: The first in the series where you have a large emotional connection to the characters. Definitely paving the way for FFVI to be the epic that it was. Best Character: That. Is TOUGH. In terms of playability? I’ll stick with Cecil. In terms of character, I’ll choose Edward.
I am utter crap at remembering combos (or even following combos) in things like Fighting games, so every time this guy learns a new Blitz technique, I had to write the combo on a piece of paper and stick it to my screen.
I like Sabin, he’s one of my favourites in this game. Yes, AuraBolt is similar to Hadouken – even I know that.
Stoic Mode is where you play the game as normal, but none of you characters have any abilities equipped or any items. This effectively means you are playing with raw stats only. Monsters are harder to kill and it is easier for you to die.
Slight gameplay changes in Stoic Mode:
Field Music in Stoic Mode
When playing a field music song in Stoic Mode, you do not get a Chocobo. I think the notes may be slightly different for what is usually the “Chocobo” part. It also means you do not go as fast and getting things like Moogles and Chests is more difficult.
Battle Music in Stoic Mode
When playing a battle music song in Stoic Mode, you do not get a Summon. The notes are very different and there is no “break” in the song for your hand to have a rest – this makes the song harder to play. Depending on your characters, and the song you’ve chosen it means you’ll do either more damage to the enemy (if using characters with high Attack and a song with lots of notes) or less damage to the enemy (if using characters with low Attack and a song with fewer notes).
Event Music in Stoic Mode
When playing an event music song in Stoic Mode, you get the shorter version of the song and the score you get for notes is weighted differently than if you were playing it regularly. This can be either good or bad. If you find the song quite hard to complete, it’s good because it’s shorter. If you find the song quite difficult to get a high score on it’s more difficult because you have fewer notes and therefore a smaller number of notes you’ll allowed to not get a “Critical” score on. For example, a song with 300 notes, you can probably miss up to 30 notes and still get an S-Rank, but a song with 50 notes you can only miss about 5.
Getting a Stoic Bonus to get SS and SSS in Stoic Mode
When you complete a song in Stoic Mode, you get a Stoic Bonus! It adds 2,000,000 points to your score! Wow!
Scores in Theatrhytm are broken down like this
7,000,000 – 8,999,999 (7,999,999 is the max number of points you can get without a Stoic Bonus): S
6,000,000 – 6,999,999: A
5,000,000 – 5,999,999: B
4,000,000 – 4,999,999: C
And so on (I’ve never gotten less than a C and not failed the song…)
But with Stoic Bonus, there are 2 new ranks that open up!
Hi guys, quick one today. I began playing Final Fantasy for Windows Phone. and thought I’d post a guide on how to open the World Map – the game doesn’t really make it obvious!
Final Fantasy Windows Phone Overworld
You see the status bar in the bottom right? When you press it, it takes you to the menu. To open the world map in Final Fantasy for Windows Phone you have to hold the status bar. So instead of just pressing it, you need to hold it down.
