There's a weird glitch in this remaster whose conditions I can't remember which will cause the PC versions's crappy MIDI soundtrack to play instead of the proper PSX nice soundtrack. Looks like that's what's happening.

she has it. Zell has to be in your active party for her to use it (though that shouldn't be a problem at this point in the plot, and IIRC she won't even play cards at all if Zell's not in your active 3).

sometimes characters with rare cards are just super reluctant to play them and there's seemingly nothing you can do about it except playing dozens of hands or trying to reload a save and start over, and hopefully whatever RNG value governs card selection is reset and more favorable the next time.

god I know way too much about this game. (granted a lot of this is fresh because the remaster coming out means I've just played through again, but still...)

I should've put this brain energy into a grad degree or something else actually useful

That’s actually hilarious. I guess this happened because I closed the application and resumed my game immediately before initiating the FMV that plays when you encounter Galbadia Garden.

Yeah, it can happen to that song multiple times in the game. If you save your game and reload at Deling, you'll be stuck with that same pc version for the rest of the mission.

I noticed that particular fmv was way more compressed than the others in the remaster. I wonder why.

The MIDI music confused me too but it was an interesting change of pace

With 3X I’m tempted to just play this game again forever

it definitely seems like the most widely hated in the series, but from what i can tell it's also partly due to linearity which doesn't necessarily bother me. i also really liked playing through ffxii for the first time earlier this year and i think it was not received well initially

Squall being a much higher level than everyone else is kinda annoying but inevitable given the story. Does any game do battle and party stuff better than FFX?

FFX is the best battle system far and away imo, you can swap party members in battle without losing a turn

The storyline in the first one is borderline incomprehensible due to all of the proper nouns they throw around, but I remember thinking the battle system was very fun.

I did all the Triple Triad stuff the first time I played the game but I've avoided it on all subsequent playthroughs because it is just too frustrating.

My Final Fantasy IX playthrough is getting pretty rough and I have to really convince myself to play it through to the end.

I didn't pay attention to the Zombie status so I had no clue why I couldn't use Phoenix Down or Life on dead Eiko.

Random enemies with instant kill attacks are the worst.

I'm pretty far into the story now (I think. I just defeated the boss at the life tree) and I still haven't been given free reign of the map so I can at least try to grind and level up so I wouldn't worry about random instant kill enemies.

day 3 update: I beat the town and I think I graduated or whatever. the battle theme is really good, which is important. overall I like the mechanics and mostly the innovations relative to FF6 and FF7 work. love to obsessively draw spells from enemies (well so far). what really killed FF9 for me is that the battles are just fucking terrible. and the cutscenes just go on forever. mashing text boxes.

really wish i could get into 8 but it just isn’t clicking at all, i just feel like the battle systems in 7/8/9 are all so antiquated and boring now. maybe i just need a break from ff games
