CalibanMarch 21, 2008

This is a forum. It is bound to have many similar responses.

One of you was talking about the GBA remake, the other talking about a DS remake?

CalibanMarch 21, 2008

I think we were both talking about this one. I already have the GBA version.

I've been waiting on another FFT game. I was angry when that PSP one came out.

The PSP one was a remake though. This one's a sequel!

I sunk about sixty hours into FFTA before I realized I didn't really like the game.  I'll probably do the same for this one.

That's not too unusual. I did the same thing for FFT on the PlayStation, and I got my character to level 42 in Phantasy Star Online on the GameCube before I realized that I despised myself for playing it.
