Help /v/, can I get a second opinion on what Final Fantasy 4 game I should play, never played The After Years sequel.
I've beaten the GBA version years ago but now that the DS version is on steam with the sequel I'm wondering if it's a good remake or not
I heard that they have a customization system for characters so it doesn't feel like it adds nothing to the table. Also heard the difficulty spike makes it fun if you're looking for a challenge.
But I'm conflicted on getting the PSP Complete version instead. Does the PSP version have the new 'Augment' system like the DS version?

It's the best Final Fantasy port on Steam, but that's not saying much.
>Also heard the difficulty spike makes it fun if you're looking for a challenge.
There's just normal and hard mode, nothing too difficult.
Pirate it on PC first if you want to try it...
just a comparison pic
I feel like the DS version will feel like it will add something more dynamic to the cutscenes, models don't look that bad, I can get by them (better than 3's).
On the other hand, I love the sprite work in the PSP versions
PSP version is based on the old GBA version which in turn is based on american SNES version just with added content.
The SNES version was known as "EasyType" while Jap was "HardType". That's because American version was made massively easier.
Since it's based on the GBA version (which was based on SNES) it has all the SNES limitations as well such as only max 50 item count of one item and limited inventory space as well as various bugs in mechanics and is obviously much easier.
DS/Mobile/PC version is the definitive version.
PSP version is best version. I've played every version of FF4 aside from the GBA version, and while the DS/ Android/ Steam version isn't terrible, I would say it's 2nd best behind the PSP version.
>PSP is literally inferior in every single way other than graphics and even that is debatable.
what do you mean?
I thought it was just an enhanced port of the GBA version with more content
By inferior do you just mean that it adds nothing new to the experience or has the difficulty been watered down from the GBA version?
FF4 is my favorite FF so you really can't go wrong with any port aside from the PSX port, and even that one isn't that bad. I'm not a fan of the augment system in the DS version if only because unless you use a guide there's no way to use the system properly. Aside from that, the DS version was great. I was a big fan of the spritework in the PSP version, but have still not played The After Years.
GBA was identical to SNES, it just had extra dungeons and better translation, no other improvements. Meaning GBA was still heavily dumbed down and had the dogshit SNES limitations and bugs. Those carried over to the PSP version.
FF6 master race
It's slowly trying to take number 1 place in my heart but I can't let go of 4 as my favorite just yet
Yeah, but it's honestly bland story and character wise. The job system in fun to fuck with. But I hear you can just pick up FF5 for that, or a Tactics game and get a better expirience
I like 6 a lot, but it isn't my favorite. I really like the first half of the game and how the narrative flows, but everything in the WoR just seems too disorganized for my taste once you get the airship. I hate missing/forgetting things in my games, so when I got to that part I had to resort to a guide to make sure I didn't miss anything
only to discover that I fucked up by not getting the Ultima weapon and should have waited for Shadow on the floating island.
I did like the freedom it gave you to prep for Kefka's Tower, but it just wasn't my cup of tea after the first part of the game. Still fantastic, though.
For 6 I'm playing it with a color and sound restoration patch you can just look up.
It has an updated script and better at naming spells and items.
It also has the famous Dragon's Den as post game GBA exclusive but I have not beaten the original game yet.
Definitely get the gba version patched.
Don't know if 5 has the same deal
>Edgar told Relm that he'll be waiting when she grows up
If you can read Japanese: Play the SFC Hard type version.
If you can't: Well that sucks, there's no perfect English version. Play the PSP version if you want something closer to the original gameplay that maintains the difficulty level. Just know that the localization is based on a localization based on the PSX localization which is pretty shit. If you want the best English localization available, play the DS/iOS/Android/PC version, though as you already know, the gameplay is completely different.
What is a good party for Kefka's tower? Right now I'm thinking Terra, Celes, Based Sabin and Shadow
He's a man of taste
The Char of Final Fantasy
I wonder how Papa Shadow felt when he found out that the philandering king of Figaro was propositioning his 10 year old daughter
>or want to be able to use other party members
they took that out in the DS/PC port?Even after that one point in the game where
everyone comes back, even Cid kamekaze Pollendina?
FFIV taught me to take video game deaths with a grain of salt
>Yang shows up in a coma in the Sylphs Cave
>Cid is with the dwarves
>THe elder of Mysidia fixes the wonder twins, something even Tellah couldn't do for some reason
>Rydia gets lolinapped by Leviathin and comes back to save the groups ass from Golbez and his FUCKING shadow dragon
>Edward survives and gets taken to a land of women. Fitting for such a little bitch
Literally the only one that actually stays dead is Tellah
I wonder if Edge would have wanted to put his dick inside her so badly if he had known that, in human terms, she was a 6 year old child a week ago
For scaling the tower? Equipment matters more than characters, but try to even out the teams as much as possible. Terra, Celes and Relm should ideally be on different teams as they're the most magetastic.
I split up Edgar/Sabin/Shadow the same way, they usually end up as their team's damage output.
Locke/Cyan/Setzer get split up, and the 4th member of each party is a toss up.
As for the final battle, I usually do Terra, Celes, Locke and Edgar.
>Meet a cute loli
>Loli seems to like you
>Find out her father is a killer who "would slit his mama's throat for a nickle"
>Leave said father on an island that's falling apart, miles above the ground
>Proceed to sex up said loli for months before hooking up with thieves from your dungeon
Based Edgar. Wonder if he ever managed to snag Terra too
