Final Fantasy X HD

Very few things have influenced me as Final Fantasy X has on a creative level. Never could explain why. Some combination of the story and the characters has just stayed with me since the game came out in 2001, and has been the point of reference through which I've compared all other video games. I know it's one of those games you either love or you hate, and the reasons for both are very, very valid. I bought a PS3 specifically for the HD re-release, which happened in the United States yesterday, and I picked up the collector's edition (the limited to 5000 copies worldwide version) of the game.

And I have to say, I'm really blown away. Everything's cleaner, brighter, and bolder. The content which was simply unavailable outside of Japan's re-release of the title in 2005 is in there, which is wonderful. The lip sinc issues are fixed, the soundtrack has been remastered, and new detail has been added to everything. There's a beige floral pattern on Lulu's dress trim that is tiny but visible in the HD version that you could never really see (but could tell something was definitely there) in the original, for example.

Eternal Calm, which was only available in English as a bonus disc in Electronic Gaming Monthly right before X-2 came out in the US, is included, as well as a brand new piece called Final Fantasy X -Will-. It's not clear what the implications of -Will- are-- after doing some digging online, it refers to a really bad novelization that the producer did that takes place six months after X-2 ends, but it really feels very strongly like a prologue for a third installment in the series, and one that may be much darker than FFX was.

Love it or hate it, it's worth revisiting Spira on the PS3-- the things that most people found bad about the game have been fixed, and for the rest of us, it's just an improvement on something nobody thought could possibly have been improved on.

Ah good old FFX the hours I spent playing blitzball, once I get my new tv I'm going to have to sit down and play it.

I also picked up the remake.
