Which Final Fantasy Game from the PSP should be remastered? Mines has to go to the First Two Dissidia Final Fantasy Games, as almost all of the Downloadable Content for Dissidia 012 Duodecim are so hard to find. Which is why it should have a remaster so that all of the Duodecim Downloadable Content can be preinstalled. But which FF Game from the PSP do you want to see a remaster of?
So, I was doing some Realm Dungeons in Record Keeper, and I was continuing the FFVIII ones. I'm already at Ultimecia's Castle.
We can listen Ultimecia's Castle music before we enter in a battle, and while I was listening to the music, because I enjoy listening to the musics, and Ultimecia's Castle is actually a very cool music, I made some crazy connections.
So, the music starts with what appears to be a happy tune, and I automatically associated it with FFI, more especifically Garland, since he is the villain from there. I also slightly associated it with FFIII, and so Cloud of Darkness. Then the music changes, and becomes more dark, and the first thing that comes to my mind is Pandemonium and Emperor Mateus from FFII. The tune changes a little again a little later, and now it gives me FFIII vibes, and again Cloud of Darkness. Suddently, the music changes like completely and it sounds like there are machines in the background, which leads me to FFVII and Sephiroth, while the melody that plays leads me to FFVI and Kefka. A little later, the machine sounds are gone, and only the melody that resembles Kefka remains. Then the music restarts from the Pandemonium state and plays on repeat, without crossing the FFI resemblance ever again.
At first I couldn't associated FFIV and FFV, but I would put them alongside FFII.
So, my conclusion is that Ultimecia's Castle music has a part that resembles a previous mainline.
Go listen to the music and tell me your opinions!
I had watched some more footage of Final Fantasy VIII on YouTube, and I had seen some more CGI Cutscenes of the game, whilst looking at a review of the PS1 Version of the game. However, there is just one issue that has come to my mind that has got me confused, and it is do with Galbadian Soldiers once again. During the interactice Cutscene, where Squall leads Rinoa away from the battle scene of the two garden battle, I saw Galbadian Soldiers take on SeeD Students. One of the Galbadian Soldiers was a red soldier that was wielding a sword, and that is when the confusion started, as I realised that there was already two variants of the red soldier (the Elite Galbadian Soldier and the Base Leader, although the focus is on the first type). I have just a single question for this topic.
The question is this:
Why would the Elite Galbadian Soldier use a Sword if he has Machine Gun Arms for Weapons?
I just don't get why an Elite Galbadian Soldier would use a Sword instead of the traditional Machine Gun Arms, I mean, the Swords are for the Galbadian Soldiers and the Paratroopers only. I thought this was a glitch or error, but I saw that there was more than one red Galbadian Soldier with a sword at the battle, and I knew that I was definitely not kidding myself. Was Sqauresoft (at the time) accidentally showing off a brand new Galbadian Soldier, that could've been the perfect candidate for a brand new Random Encounter Enemy?
I am so confused about this.
I have seen another video of Final Fantasy VIII on Youtube, and it was about the Galbadian Garden of Disc 1, since this is the Playstation 1 Version. However, the opening CGI Cutscene showed something that had got me interested once again, and this time it is to do with the machines. We all know about the Green Jetpacks, that were used by the Green Galbadian Paratroopers in Disc 2 of the Battle of the Gardens, but there was also another Jetpack that was the same as the Green Jetpack, albeit a Yellow Colour to be precise. Again, I have only one question for this topic.
The question is as follows:
Are the Yellow Coloured Jetpacks for Galbadian Student Cadets, or for Yellow Coloured Galbadian Soldiers?
I know that the Green Jetpack people were not the Paratroopers, but Galbadian Garden Teachers instructing and training the Galbadian Garden Students in the Yellow Jetpacks, but come the Battle of the Gardens, the Green Jetpacks would be used by the Paratroopers. Since the Green Jetpacks were used in the battle, then I am guessing that the Yellow Jetpacks could've been used in battle, to transport Yellow Galbadian Soldiers into battle. Yes, there were no Yellow Galbadian Soldier in the entire game, but since the Green Jetpacks showed the Green Paratroopers, then the Yellow Jetpacks could've hinted at the possibility of Yellow Galbadian Soldiers in Final Fantasy VIII.
If that was true, then it would've been cool to see a Yellow Galbadian Soldier in Final Fantasy VIII.
So, I already have all 12 legendary weapons, I have Bahamut, Leviathan, Odin, Syldra/Hydra, I defeated Gogo and did the piano quest
Is there something else I'm missing before I go into the Interdimensional Rift, besides Phoenix Tower, which I know I still have to do?

Well, I'm at the single point I've been dreading most since starting my second Final Fantasy VI playthrough. The hardest part of the whole game (aside from bonus stuff): Floating Continent!
I'll be taking Edgar, Sabin, and Locke there (sorry Terra), but for my fourth party member for level grinding first, I'll obviously want Celes as she'll be the one who all party members except Gau will be at when they rejoin. Celes is Level 35 and the others, Level 37. I'll need to be at least Level 40 to stand a chance at Floating Continent.
But, there is a problem. The spot that gave me the most experience was Cave to the Sealed Gate, which is gone, as it is now Floating Continent. (Fortunately I got Ultima Weapon. The sword, I know the boss is at Floating Continent and I got four Angel Wings at the auction house already) There is Esper Caves, and I can now kill those Adamant whatever with Edgar's Drill, but I'd need to get two of them frequently to make any real progress. (Mandrakes are annoying as they Leech 300 HP from you, sometimes when they die)
There is one other spot I checked out: A triangle-shaped island northeast. The enemies there are weak, except for one forest section that takes up four squares on the map, with an enemy too powerful to defeat. I know I can make him visible with magic, but he keeps killing me with Meteor so I'm obviously not ready to fight him yet. (Does Runic work on Meteor?)
Edit: This enemy is called Intangir, I looked him up and he doesn't even give any experience or gil, so what's the point in fighting him? (At least I don't have to go near him again)
So... I've been wanting to read FFXV Novel sequel but haven't been able to find it... Actually buying it is extremely improbable because it is not made in my country, the import taxes are more expensive than the actual product and most of the times they destroy the merchandise... And since there isn't even a version in my language, its also hard for me to actually read... but since I loved FFXV, I would like to give it a try. So, does anyone know how I can read like a PDF or something like that? I haven't been able to find on my own 😓
So, it's been a while since I played FFV(had to take a break because of school, but today I have free afternoon and I can play a little) and in order to continue I need to go to the Fork Tower, but last time I went there, the monsters instantly killed me, they dealed 9999 of damage to me.
So, uhmm.... what level and job classes do you guys recommend for me?
My characters are currently lv.38(and Reina/Lenna at lv.37). Today I want to level them more up and keep levelling the job classes.
Bartz has Knight at lv.3, Berserker at lv.1(and currently it is his job class), and Lancer, Hunter and Geomancer mastered
Reina/Lenna has Knight at lv.3, Summoner at lv.5(and currently it is her job class), Trainer at lv.3, Bard at lv.2, Dancer at lv.2, and White Mage mastered
Krile has Knight at lv.3, Monk at lv.4(and currently it is her job class), Thief at lv.5, Ninja at lv.4, Sorcerer at lv.3, and Samurai mastered
Faris has Monk at lv.3, Thief at lv.4, Ninja at lv.1(and currently it is her job class), Red Mage at lv.3, and Knight mastered
Don't talk about Blue Mage because I haven't been after blue magics, so that's one out.

In my opinion. For as far as I remember from my research and first playthrough, and as far as I am on my second. If anyone feels someone should be a bit higher or lower, let me know.
She's generally accepted as the main character even though she's absent between the fight with Kefka at Narshe Cliffs and the aftermath of Magitek Research Facility, has the shortest story in the split after Lethe River, and rejoins after the initial four of the World of Ruin (and I THINK you have to at least get Cyan first?).
She has the most story of all the characters, from the backstory of her parents (one of whom is even playable in the flashback), to being enslaved by the Empire, to trying to figure out what she is, to the revelation of her being half human half Esper, to being a key figure in the alliance between humans and Espers (even though it ended in tragedy for the Espers), to finding a sort of motherly love for the kids of Mobliz and realizing she must continue fighting to protect them, to surviving in pure human form following Kefka's death and the destruction of all magic. She's also the starting character in the World of Balance, and I think a necessary party member for both Cave of the Sealed Gate and Esper Caves.
In the World of Balance, she has a lesser role than the next three. But she is the starting character in the World of Ruin, and thus one of the initial four, as well as an extended sequence with Cid, either dying of illness or successfully saving him with good enough fish.
He is the second party member near the beginning, from rescuing Terra at Narshe to his story with Rachel and his love for Celes, even though at earliest you get him ninth in the World of Ruin, in a dungeon where you need eight characters already, and which concludes the Rachel arc of his story. If I recall he goes with Terra to the Cave of the Sealed Gate.
It's close between him and his brother. They share the same backstory regarding the successor of Figaro's throne and when they went their separate ways, and roughly the same amount of time in your party, including being two of the initial four of the World of Ruin, as well as their own bit of exclusive story, in Edgar's case, being one of the Returners while pretending to be an ally to the Empire, being the king of the castle that travels through the sand, and his charade with the thieves to get his castle back and save everyone there.
I put him slightly above Sabin because he's my main whenever he's available, he's probably the best character due to his tools (particularly Auto Crossbow and Drill), and overall my favorite character.
Only slightly below Edgar. You first get him after Edgar in World of Balance, but before Edgar in World of Ruin. His role in the split after Lethe River is longer than Edgar's so it would be understandable if someone else thinks he should be above him. They otherwise share the same backstory and are two of the initial four in World of Ruin. He also has the exclusive backstory with Duncan and Vargas.
He's part of Sabin's longer story after the split of Lethe River, and with his wife and son being poisoned by Kefka and wanting to destroy the Empire for it. And a bit of an event in the World of Ruin with the letters to Lola, where the game seems to want him to become your fifth party member as it leads you to him after getting the airship. I'd have probably put him below Setzer if not for the optional but extended dreamscape sequence with him, which I've never done but heard of.
He provides the airship you need to get to some lands, even though after this he doesn't play a huge role UNTIL he becomes one of the initial four in the World of Ruin, once again leading you to an airship that you use to travel the land and get the rest of the characters, in the process revealing his backstory with Darill.
The first two times you can get him are optional, but on the first he can be present throughout the whole Phantom Train. He does become a definitive part of the adventure at Thamasa and Floating Continent, and I think if you sleep with him in your party in World of Ruin (provided he didn't die at Floating Continent), you get sequences of his backstory, including that he is Relm's father.
One of the later party members. You have him in your party longer than Relm so he's slightly above her, even though you get him after Relm in the World of Ruin. He also explains of the descendants of the Magi and is in your party for Burning Home and Esper Caves.
Only slightly below her grandfather. While she's not in your party for long compared to the others, she snaps Strago out of his trance when he's in the Cult of Kefka, leading him to rejoin the party, and she's also Shadow's daughter, hence why Interceptor is so friendly to her.
He doesn't have much of a story compared to the others, aside from having been ditched by his father for being a feral "demon". But he does play one significant part by giving Sabin and Cyan the head gear they need to swim through Serpent's Trench to Nikeah.
Doesn't play a huge significant part in the story other than being a party member the player could go with for the remainder of the game if they so choose, and a good choice for twelfth party member to make Kefka's Tower easier, not to mention the Cultists' Tower with Moogle Charm. His biggest part in the actual story is being held hostage by Lone Wolf, and he has no real backstory other than being taught English by Ramuh in his dreams. He is also very out of the way and easily missable.
You can only get him in the World of Ruin and he's completely optional. He's also not the greatest character as he can't use items or magic, just automatically attacks, but you might need him if you missed Mog and/or let Shadow die in Floating Continent or sold the sword you need to get him. He's listed above Gogo because he is mentioned in Narshe a few times before you meet him.
Also completely optional and only obtainable in the World of Ruin. Where Mog at least gives you the hint to find Umaro, Gogo is even more out of the way than both him and Mog, as the way to get him is quite cryptic, having all your party members eaten by a specific beast (who would think to do that?), then navigating a very difficult dungeon that I could never get past.
