I never got into it alot because I was busy with a FFXI Obsession at the time, so really looking forward to playing it again... Even though I just found a PS2 version not long ago lol. I think ill wait for this now.

Sold, I bought the game and then ended up getting involved in Uni and life so never got around to playing more than the first 1/2 hour. By the time I got the next FF I had moved on and no longer had the PS2 to play it (Died a horrible death).

I am so incredibly happy this is happening.  FFXII isn't my favourite FF game but something about it just made it thoroughly enjoyable to play and I'm really going to enjoy going back through this again next year.

 

I really don't mind the remasters like this when it's a game from so long ago and there are real improvements being made rather than just minor enhancements.

I never got this play this - it was just towards the next generation and then I went Xbox. 

Is there a solid release date, or is it just '2017'?

I'm probably going to be in the minority here but after falling in love with FFXIII's battle system I don't think I will ever be able to go back to playing any of the older Final Fantasy's again unfortunately.

I felt the battle made spells feel weak and lack impact. Just too spammy.
Kinda like instead of casting a massive fire spell you just throw matches at them one after the other.

I would like to know what you enjoy about it.

Well it's been a while since I've played it but the FFXIII battle system felt much more action oriented than previous games ever did, plus the Paradigm system added a level of strategy that I felt was missing in previous games. I was always constantly shifting paradigms as the battles ebbed and flowed which was a whole lot of fun.

 

I'm not quite sure what you mean by spammy?

I dug the sh*t out of XIII's combat because it was different and engaging.

 

But still prefer the classic JRPG battle systems, which XII didn't have any way did it?  IIRC it was a real time action combat style.

Was kind of like ffxi if I remember correctly. I was too busy with Xi to play it much.

And by spammy I just mean casting the same spells 3-4 times each turn kind of made it feel like the spells were weak, especially if you hadn't staggered it. I loved the turn based stratagem of X. I still do when playing the remaster
