Always enjoyed 12 more than 10 and it's sequel and what followed ,probally in my top five FF games. Never understood the bad rep it got.

No me neither, it's got a fun battle system with gambits and the story is excellent! I'm not a huge fan of X/X2 though to be honest and I did enjoy XIII which also gets a bad rap

No just looked at some reviews and they all say it's awful, the original is better in every way. Had to get download a patch to get modern resolutions . It's looks so much better than what I've seen of the remake, why even bother with the remaking the game if they get rid of the stylish graphical style and go for some generic crap.

For those interested it's 1.99 on steam at the moment. Way better than the 35- 40 For The turd of a remake

Did you ever play it?

Whilst some people may be waiting for their PS5 to arrive, I'm happy with my PS4 Pro and my array of controllers.

I just finished the MAFIA remake.

Not sure if you know this, lads, but CRIME DOESN'T PAY.

I finished Final Fantasy XII last night, racing to complete before PS5 day. I have to say that's one of the best JRPG stories ever and the voice acting is fantastic all around. Also, for it's time the animation in the cutscenes was spot on, really natural, in the end credits I noticed they had motion actors.

I may have over egged the grinding though, modern JRPGs can be punishing without a bit of a grind between boss battles so I got to level 50 and the last run of 5 boss fights was a bit of a cakewalk.

Now I'm just impatiently waiting for Shopto to send me my dispatch email and tracking number


Also, quick question... If your plus membership lapses and you sub again do you still have access to the games you added to your library or is it a new slate? I bought a 12 month card because it was 11 cheaper than paying the sub fee but I've turned auto-renew off so I can look for a deal later...
