Yeah, FFX-2 was more a exercise in busoms and g-strings.
I propose, instead of saying f u c k all the time, we just replace it with sex.
Like, what the sex? Why you gotta sexin' front all the time, you sexin' sex-ass.
actually I think this game was made for the fangirls rather than the fan boys. I worked at EB when the game was released all those years ago... and really the only people excited about buying it were us female gamers.
thats what you would think. but I just remember very well around that whole time most guys had no interest or hated the idea, and most girls were so excited for the game. the whole cheesy girl-power-lets-dress-up thing is what did it I think. either way cosplaying as Yuna was AWESOME!
In the most recent Retronauts podcast, Jeremy Parish (or one of the other HUGE nerds) argued that FFX-2 inherited the spirit of Chrono Trigger because of its whimsy and not-taking-itself-too-seriously disposition. Discuss.
I kind of agree Matt, plus, X-2 has the best combat in a Squeenix RPG since Chrono Trigger. Just cause some people hate certain games for whatever reason (like insulting their masculinity I suppose) doesnt mean they should be blind to their merits (of course, regular folks take games for granted as it is, which sucks)
The reason why the story in CT is lighthearted though may lie because of the Enix involvement, the essence of the sotry reminded me more of Illusion of Gaia, for instance
