    I don't think Lightning is that popular, except with Toriyama. I don't play these games for the story, so I don't care much either way. Sazh is cool, though. Vanille is basically Rikku.

    Every time it launches, as far as I can tell. Personally I always use cloud synchronization anyway, but it is a blatantly stupid decision on SE's part. I hope they look into patching it out.

    If you could only run during combat you would actually be able to take advantage of positioning. But Lightning can only slowly walk.

    Don't worry, they'll stop fetishizing the place after getting robbed and raped by Mohammed and Mouloud a few times and seeing nothing but niggers while they travel here as tourists.

    Funnily, last time I was in Paris I mostly saw about 90000000000000000 Japs doing peace signs, taking selfies and few Americans, all Texans for some reason, bitching about no one speaking MURICAN GOD DAMMIT!

    This was in 2009, long before the word "selfie" even existed. And I wish it still didn't. Point is, the fapanese were already doing it. Actually some of the aforementioned Texans asked me to take a picture of them at the Place de la Concorde, in front of the obelisk. Imagine that, asking someone else to take your picture instead of using a retarded stick. Talking to other people, what is this, the dark ages?

    Anyway, is RAITONINGU RETANZU FAINARU FANTASHI DOMO ARIGATO MISTA ROBOTO as horribly ported as the previous 2? The last post makes it seem so.

    According to comments on steam forums, to play the game steam cloud needs to be enabled even in offline mode. People that disabled cloud globally in steam client still can't play the game.

    pseudo-DRM aside, how was the actual porting? I know the previous SE ports were super shitty.

    Runs great for me. Definitely better than the FF XIII port.

    I haven't tried the >1080p resolutions though.

    In other news, Lightning has returned... as a Louis Vuitton fashion model:



    I approve.

    The game is a fun action/adventure title. I like dressing women up like dolls and playing with them. :bounce:

    It is an entry with a job system.

    In fact, it is one of the best job and combat systems in the franchise. Plus a kick ass soundtrack and Lightning is beautiful as a rose.

    I honestly hope Lightning appears everywhere, like FF7's remake and every other shit Square Enix. My reasons:
    • She's cool, pretty and I like her voice;
    • The thought of her appearing in any game apparently makes tr00 mature fans lose their shit;
    • Everyone is going to buy FF7 anyway. It won't matter if Square pisses a small minority off.
    Seriously. I dream that there will be a quest to ressurrect Aerith that will take hours, and then when you get her body to a magical river to ask for a goddess to revive her, Light's theme plays, she appears and tells us that we should let go. Then she joins the party and is basically Orlandu on steroids, so that everyone wants to use her.

    Took them long enough, but the Steam cloud is finally optional now:

    I finally started playing it, and you can tell they definitely put a lot of effort into this port.
    Just have a look at the first tutorial screen that pops up.
