I don't think that Omega Weapons are good for your digestive system, Cerys.

Just realised the dwarves in Final Fantasy IX speak with Scottish accents. Ace.

It might explain the necessity for a bionic arse, though.

The final piece of the puzzle has now been slotted into place.

FFX is the subject of this week's episode of Cane and Rinse.

I booted this up after getting bored with FF IX (I really am broken) and I forgot how much of a departure FFX is from the the series. It has the weakest opening of it and its three main predecessors but visually its stunning, and hearing that very hard bit of metal during the blitzball game and Sin coming is mental, it feels so out of place to me I love it.

Me too.  When I first played it I didn't like how different it was from its predecessors, but it grew in me.

And I've just finished it - and apart from my Seymour-related fuck-up, using only physical attacks, items and overdrives.  Definitely doable.  In fact I splatted Jecht in just two attacks - a single blow from Auron, and an overdrive from Yuna.  I'm now going to go back and get Yuna's Celestial Weapon fully powered so I can find out how nails she is.

I think Yuna's is the easiest to power up. I remember getting her's pretty early, which meant she was always front line, which meant she got the most experience and traversed most of the grid with her, making her a tank which could decimate dark aeons on her own.

Okay i'm back on this now after being sidetracked with other games. Tidus is the shittest protagonist ever.

Cloud: Mysterious
Squall: Brooding
Zidane: Cheeky
Tidus: Hungry.

Couldn't beat the last boss on this. He's a right fucker. I think I spent a day trying to beat him, and couldn't face going back and grinding. I've still got a save somewhere.

Please tell me Blitzball is pointless, I do not want to have to play this.

I was so disappointed with blitzball, thought it was gonna be played like a normal sports game giving a nice contrast to all the turned based combat, but no, more of the same, and all of your team are crapped-of-the-pants so you loose the majority of the stat based action and then cry and cry, because it's just all futile, and why even bother?

The absolutely monged audio of this port is starting to get on my tits. There's a 50% chance that any line of dialogue will just not happen.

FFX is just horrendous Japanese anti-whale propaganda. "Ohh we must save our peaceful islands from the evil ceteacean, we have been at their mercy for far too long. Now we must unite in our holy quest to destroy the delicious, evil whales." Never completed it so I'm just assuming they eat Sin at the end.
 
Imagine if FF8 had been voiced as badly as FFX, imagine Squall voiced by a badly directed, minimaly talented voice actor. I'm guessing it would be a nasal and whiny performance. Begs the question, would Tidus be more tolerable if he were silent, and it was all dialogue boxes? No.

Squall would affect a low monotone though, he's not whiny and hysterical at least.

Zell, Selphie and Irvine on the other hand... oh boy.

I didn't think they did a very good job voicing the FF7 characters in the spin-off games/films, with the exception of Vincent.

Wakka is even worse. I'm pretty sure its mega inappropriate.

Yeah, whiny is the wrong word. Yeah a monotone, cynical American gen-Xer, with added surly 'tude. And now I'm imagining Seifer talking like Roger from Doug, and I can't stop.

Some of the FFVIII characters have been voiced though, so you can find out. Check out either Dissidia series or Kingdom Hearts early installments.
