Useless FF:CC info

Post by imported_Cravdraa » Tue Jan 27, 2004 1:46 am

My brother and I were excited about Final Fantasy: Crystal Cronicles; that is, until we discovered that multiplayer required everyone to have a GBA. While we both own Gamecubes, (we don't live in the same house) only I own a GBA, as he opted to just get a Gameboy Player.

Well this situation got us thinking, and after some research I'm pleased to announce that if you don't own two or more GBAs you can substitute another GCN with a gameboy player instead. ;)

As I said, pretty useless. But it will let the 2 of us enjoy the game when it's released.

Wait, wait, wait...

From what I've read, it seems like you HAVE to have at least 2 players to play. Is this true?

What a fault in advertising then! I've yet to read ANYTHING that says one person can play by his/herself. Everything's like, "Play with friends! The first multiplayer FF! Use your GBAs for multiplayer action!"

It looks interesting IMO. To my understanding it uses a combat system that's like a cross between the Zelda series and Phantasy Star Online, except for the unique magic system, which varies depending on if you're playing alone or multiplayer.

The bucket can be dropped at any time for the player carrying it to join in, and from the info I've read, the A.I. is nearly flawless at carrying it in the single player mode.

The only thing I dislike is the requirement to use GBA. That's not actually Square's fault though, since Nintendo demanded it as part of their agreement.

What an evil money-making scheme. I don't like it.

...You HAVE to have a GBA and a link?

I thought the game looked good, too.

Wait until thousands of people buy the game, then try to take it back, saying they didn't know...

So you DON'T need a GBA? Nintendo sucks at advertising.

They love to whore that cash! ;)
