FF13 demo, FFa13 trailer, and the FFv13 trailer from last year? Geesh, yesterday was busy for some people.
..for me too. Woke up a bit late, I'd promised to Kitty I'd be up by noon since her RSE week started then. Ended up oversleeping by a bit due to this strangest dream, and then we started playing. And playing. And playing. Aside from a few pauses, the longest an hour long, we kept playing until around 1 AM. At no point did I /shutdown, just idled. Man, really gotta try to play less. @__@ Although I had an excuse yesterday, the RSE-hunting took unexpectedly long (we got one piece of Kitty's RSE in the time it took us to get two and a half for me), and leveling our subjobs (BLM) was getting kinda urgent so we did that too... Well, at least we made some progress. One more level on RDM (I think? Must've leveled at least once since we spent so long down in Shakhrami this time, even though the mobs were getting a bit weak for us) and four levels on BLM, that's really some progress there for someone who only does duos instead of partying. (and by the way? Manaburns are godly on the exp, even with just two people)
In a couple more days we gotta go to Shakhrami again to get my last piece of RSE...then we'll be finally done with that place, and good riddance. sidetracked. FF13 demo? Looked pretty good. I haven't had the time to read reactions much, although I can totally see the kind of people who complained about FF12 battle system complaining about FF13 too. And completely ignoring that it's the same fucking system presented a tiny bit differently, once again.
Agito keeps looking interesting. I still think I'll get the Japanese version, unless it's launched at about the same time everywhere. Considering that it's SE..probably no such luck.

FF11 screenies, late December: Christmas event and Jeuno ) many screenies was that? I guess they're enough for now. I still didn't get away from December's screenies though. The very last week of it left.

Finished Final Fantasy II.. my second time. I was in a bit more hurry than I would've liked, though, as my copy of Crisis Core arrived in the mail today, and I was itching to get to play it. So I skipped further playing around with the Arcane Sanctuary, and just beat my way through Jade Passage and thing I don't like about that game is that the Emperor is a total joke for a final boss. Doesn't hit nearly hard enough.

Arcane Sanctuary )

So, since I finished FF2, I started on FF7 Crisis Core, just like I thought to do. For once. xD; What struck me immediately is that I might have made a mistake in getting the English version. The voices really bug me. I love Angeal's Japanese voice, it fits him so well. And infinitely better than the English one, I think. The shock of realizing that the voice in the beginning is his was...not pleasant. And Sephiroth's English voice is, as usual, quite horrid. Not to mention that jarring effect in my head whenever the English!Zack opens his mouth... I'm just way too used to the Japanese!Zack.
Now I'm really hoping for an International version. Even if they don't release one (the odds of that just came up a while ago though, with FF7DC International..), I'll get it in Japanese anyway. I doubt I could take playing through Crisis Core in English more than once. .__.

Other than the voices.. I'm not surprised with all the hype, but the game is really good. Addicting, with all those bite-sized missions. Gives the 'just one more..' effect.
Also considering how I haven't played other PSP games than FF remakes and ports on it (you know, plus Lumines), the graphics were a bit of a shock, no matter how many times I've seen screenshots of it. That thing looks amazing! My hopes for FF Agito XIII just went up a notch. =D
