    To buy it or not to buy it .....

    FF XII releases today for the PS2.

    I'm wondering if I should take the plunge and buy it, haveing played most of the other titles in the series up to X (not any after X and not the online one)

    I have not read much about this title beyond a few things in random game mags.

    I've heard great things about it in reviews and such. Also my friend played the demo and he said that it was great. He has played a ridiculous amount of RPGs over the years, so I'm gonna trust him. So, I'm going out today and picking it up, as long as there is any copies left when I get to the store.

    I vote for it.

    It's getting pretty high reviews at the game websites I've visited, and I saw a great preview for it on Xplay on G4.

    I'm getting it for Christmas... if you get it, and it's good, let us know :thumbsup:

    Last time I loaded a FF game, I felt as if I was watching it not playing it. Too many cutscenes; same as MGS. Depends if you like that sort of thing.

    I'm still undecided at this point.

    TBC for WOW comes out in Feburary(possibly) and I am likely to pick it up.

    Catch is, I am looking at condos and houses around here and will be moving at some point in the near future, when I do move I won't have internet or a comp for a while.

    So On one hand I will have something to keep me busy.

    I might wait a bit and get it next month or something.

    I've been playing it for the last month or so (wonders of pre-release leaked software), and although quite different from the previous Final Fantasies, it's a great game. Thumbs up.

    Well if you get it, you better have it completely done with in 4 months, so you can hit level 70!

    I am also trying to decide if I should get FF12. My concern is that I don't have time for an rpg right now, and should just wait for the price to drop after xmas. But part of me wants it now.

    True... waiting until it's a Greatest Hit would save some bucks, and a lot of time during the school year.

    If I were you I would get it.
    Its the Only Final Fantasy to get a Perfect score from Famitsu (Japanese Gaming Magazine), and the Second one from that Director. By the way, only 5 other games have ever had a perfect score from Famitsu.

    Or, if you wanna wait till next month and you happen to have a DS, get Final Fantasy III (previously the only Final Fantasy never to reach western shores). I'm absolutely drooling at the very thought of getting it on the 14th

    If I shell out the cash to get a DS (even though it's not a big ticket item) I might as well wait till Christmas anyways.

    Pre-ordered the Collector's Edition.

    Now I just have to to scam the money and pick it up.

    Against. Just say no to most RPG's, and all FF's.

    Yeah, I mean the school year means nothing when you work 9-5, but other than that I agree.
