Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, ZombiePie, am once again honored to be your host this week as we look back on the best user-created offerings from the previous week. As Game of the Year and Christmas loom closer and closer, the Giant Bomb community had an awesome but calm week. The offerings this week feature a little bit of everything, with works of art and discussion threads entertaining users far and wide. With that in mind, let's jump into the site-related housekeeping!

#2  Edited By ZombiePie  Moderator

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, ZombiePie, am once again honored to be your host this week as we look back on the best creative offerings from the community. Obviously, last weekend marked the "peak hours" of Giant Bomb's participation in Extra Life 2019. Through the sometimes drunk-laden madness, the Giant Bomb account alone was able to raise over $88K, and the team as a whole raised over $213K! Giant Bomb's Extra Life account still has a ways to go to its individual fundraising goal of $100,000, but you can expect more "impromptu" streams in the future. For example, Mr. Rorie has stated he plans to host a more "formal" stream sometime latter in the month. Additionally, don't forget, Extra Life 2019 does not end until December 31st! If you were unable to stream or donate, you still have plenty of time! Speaking of which, let's jump into the site-related housekeeping as much of it has to do with Extra Life!

Extra Life 2019

Congratulations are in store for Giant Bomb being on the front page of Extra Life as the third biggest individual donor!

This is the single largest charity drive Giant Bomb as a community commits to every year and having this temporary "inconvenience" results in literal thousands of extra dollars going to sick children in need of emergency medical treatment they otherwise cannot afford.

As such, a helpful directory to everything related to Giant Bomb's 2019 Extra Life effort can be found immediately after the site-related housekeeping. If there is one request I have, it's for everyone to take some time examining the Giant Bomb roster and donating to any accounts that currently are sitting at $0. At the time this Spotlight was published, there were over SIXTY members of Team Giant Bomb sitting at $0! So, if you are feeling charitable, help these users out with their first donation! With that simple request behind us, let's jump into the housekeeping!

  • Before anyone asks, the Giant Bomb staff run Extra Life streams will be archived. For Will Smith, Pascual, Lang, or Danny's streams, follow their YouTube or Twitch accounts to watch their archives.
  • If you experience issues when donating on Extra Life's website, unfortunately, their site has been targeted by DDoS attacks all throughout its peak hours. Please keep trying and understand this is a truly unfortunate issue.

Alright, let's tackle another batch of comments all of you were so kind to provide on this blog. Apologies for the belated input on my part, but better late than never!

When 12 first came out, I played it, but got to the very end and stopped midway through the last area because I just got bored. Since then I've always considered it my least favorite Final Fantasy game, and replaying ZA has pretty much cemented that ranking in my personal list. I just find so little about the game to be "good", and it's just a bummer to be the single player Final Fantasy that was supposed to follow FFX, my all time favorite.

Unrelated to 12 but I saw it passed around on one of these blogs of yours: FFX-2 is a damn fine game and I'll defend it! I am playing through X-2 HD in tandem with 12 and it's just been so much more enjoyable in every way. Great deep story beats, the right kind of corny, more enjoyable combat and much better music (I think I hate 12's music? It's so unmemorable to me).

People should play FFX-2

During the podcast version of this series, we had Rorie on as a guest. Even he, a former guide editor, found the design of Final Final Fantasy XII inscrutable. I have to say, some of the hunts are just downright unfair. Simply making the monster spawn can require a four to five step process the actual job posting do not prompt you about! Also, as you point out, the rewards for completing Final Fantasy XII's side content is questionable at best. If there are rewards worth getting, like Green Magic spells, they are dolled out by the first two acts.

On the matter of FFX-2, I have actually warmed up to the game after playing Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2. I maintain my primary complaint that the game's interstitial moments are less in support of its novel dressphere system, and more in service of shitty one-off minigames. Some of which are simply terrible. Likewise, I find its retconning of Final Fantasy X's ending totally blasphemous. Nonetheless, that game has a lot of heart and at the very least does not overstay its welcome.

This is the youngest looking old man I have ever seen - it breaks my mind. Forget about "fear" being the mind killer, this character's head shreds my nerve ganglion!

You know, at least Basch, Balthier, and Ashe look their ages. I think that's part of the reason why I desperately wanted Basch to be the protagonist. A burly grizzled war veteran being the protagonist of a Final Fantasy game would have been a refreshing formula break.

But then they went with Vaan and his ugly-ass abs.

@beforet said:

Can't wait for you to play FF2. Don't go three tiles to the left of the starting position.

Oh, trust me, I made several other mistakes that will make the next blog series very "special."

Did I mention I'm playing the Famicom version?

The Great Crystal was so fucking bad I think I spent a couple hours in there and then turned off the game forever. I was looking forward to your pain (sorry).

Oh, the level get WORSE if you choose to return to it after your first go! Here's a map of the level AFTER you complete the story sequence that forces you there:

What in the literal fuck am I looking at?
What in the literal fuck am I looking at?

I guarantee you are never going to complain about the gambit system in XII again after playing through II's leveling system. (It's essentially a proto-Elder Scrolls where characters get better at things they do. Unfortunately, it's designed in such a way that the game incentivizes punching your own characters in the face over and over again rather than honestly engaging with enemies).

Having said that, I think it's also an excellent example of one of the philosophical conundrums inherent in Final Fantasy. The series known for shaking up the gameplay with nearly every iteration, but the consequence of that is that they end up leaving behind a lot of systems that are "just OK" in favor of something new, when those systems have the potential to be great if they'd just stick with them for a game or two. But if they stuck with those systems, would it lose the innovation that makes Final Fantasy Final Fantasy?

To a certain degree, I at least understand the leveling system. What I don't get are the nigh dozen sub-systems that dictate how much your stats level up or grow. The fact you can spend hours in a dungeon and have NOTHING to show for it, boggles my mind. Also, the inventory system in FF2 is dogshit terrible. And the magic system... the magic system is soooooo bad!

I spent a lot of time looking at this screen wondering who thought this was a good idea.

Alright everyone, it's that time for me to address some of the input you all have provided on this blog! For those unaware, I try to respond to any and all comments posted on my Final Fantasy blogs within the first two weeks of its publish date. So, without further ado, let's jump into it!

@sombre said:

I feel you about status effects ZP. I picked Foebreaker as a class cause it was lauded as "Debuffing enemies attack and defense powers" which I thought would be great on a gambit. Turns out I didn't get "Shear" I think it was called (?) that reduced armor till about level 40/50?

It has the best char in FF history with Basch, but it doesn't do much with him

Basch is such a great character that the game should have just committed to him being the player's character. His relationship-arc with his brother should have been a focal point during the middle of the game, because of how little storytelling the game does in its first to second act. And while Gabranth is a great character, he doesn't flesh out until the last two or three set pieces.

And I'm glad you mentioned the Foebreaker class, because I read a guide saying it was the strongest class, but MAN does FF12 do JACK SHIT to guide you on how to spec your characters. It's unconscionable how little the game does to clue you into what its classes are designed to do. I STILL don't entirely understand what the Uhlan or Time Battlemage are supposed to do in that game! What a load of nonsense!

I'm excited for FF2 to come because I do have a slight soft spot for it. That game has a huge mess of problems but in the context of its release it's arguably one of the most daring games in the franchise. There are things done in that story, threadbare as it is at times, that remain fairly special to this day.

Quick question, which version of OG Final Fantasy 2 did you play? @thatpinguino played the PS1 version and I have heard the GBA version is good as well. Nonetheless, I played a fan-translation of the Famicom game, and absolutely hated myself for it. That version is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad! However, I'm starting to think maybe I did the game dirty by playing that version.

Any input would be appreciated.

@casepb said:

The only part of the game I really disliked was the Great Crystal. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I even looked up a guide and still was frustrated by it.

The Great Crystal might well be my least favorite individual level in a Final Fantasy game ever. Gran Pulse probably is my #1 pick on account of how freaking boring it is, and how spread out all of the mission objective are from one another. On the other hand, The Great Crystal is downright incomprehensible.

I think I can only name two other Final Fantasy levels where I legitimately did not think I could solve them without a guide. Those being Final Fantasy VII's Temple of the Ancients and Final Fantasy X-2's piano puzzle before the final boss.

Congrats on finishing the game. New Game+? lmaooooo i don't think i knew it had that.

I don't even know why Final Fantasy XII has a New Game+ outside of that's the best way to beat Yiazmat, but the Hell with that! I ain't doing that shit! But the funny thing with FF12 is it has two new game plus options. The Zodiac version has tNew Game+, where all characters begin at level 90, and New Game-, where all characters start at Level 1 and do not gain any experience.

It's wild and further proof crazy people made this game.

@csl316 said:

The last few hours solidified this game as my favorite Final Fantasy. The lighthouse stuff dragged, but from the cutscene at the top to the end of the game I was blown away. The final battle is spectacular and the narrative pays off in ways I really enjoyed.

The Zodiac Age fixed my complaints with the original and made the best parts of the game even better (most notable, the music).

Heck, it's my 2019 game of the year despite me buying the original at a midnight launch in '06 (and stopping a dozen hours in).

Sure, and again I'm not going to use these blogs to take away from your love of this game. I will re-iterate, the base game is slow and has an incredible learning curve for anyone who has never played it before. This was a "blind playthrough" and I think I grappled half of the game's mechanics. For anyone who has already played the game two or three times, I can imagine the Zodiac Age edition is the version of the game you've always wanted. Nonetheless, for me at least, it was a rough experience that overstayed its welcome. Not only did I need to learn about the Gambit System, but I also had to wrap my mind around its incredibly complicated job system. That was a hard ask, and it's an even harder ask when the game doesn't have a single tutorial worth a damn.

Hello and welcome to another spooky edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! Once again, I, ZombiePie, am honored to be your host this week as we look back on the best creative offerings from the Giant Bomb Community. It was a real interesting week this week. The Halloween theming continues with a new take on the Giant Bomb logo which you can learn more about down in the Galleria section of this Spotlight. Additionally, Giant Bomb's Extra Life effort continues stronger than ever! The team has gained even more team members at the total money raised continues to grow! However, with that out of the way, let's jump into the housekeeping!
