The problem with buying FFIII and Pokémon Pearl at the same time is... well, I enjoy them both so much, I'm having trouble deciding which one to play. They're both hugely addictive and so much fun, but right now Pokémon is winning out, purely because my mindset is more "collect things and then level them like crazy" than simply "level like crazy, sit back and enjoy plot and graphics".

Incidentally, nohatmatt, I saw that advert for FFIII you mentioned, and that cutscene? It's in the game. I hadn't seen the ad at the time and was so taken aback I ran with my DS across the room to show my mother and saying "look at this!!" until she caved in. The in-game graphics are pretty nifty too, prompting another "you HAVE to see this!" moment. It's so... shiny. O_o

In so many respects, the games are polar opposites of one another but they're just both too great. I played Pokémon most of today though, so I think it'll be FF tomorrow. I'm gonna have to alternate if I can't figure this out soon.

Hmm the problem with buying Castlevania & Pokemon Diamond at the same time is that I don't think either of these are going to be anywhere near finished by June and I'm technically supposed to be revising at the moment. I've been looking at final fantasy as well...

Pokémon is insanely addictive, isn't it? x___x Is Castlevania any good?

As to revising... you could try using the games as a reward? Kind of like, revise for an hour and then play one of 'em for... I was going to say ten minutes, but I think it'd have to be an hour to feel satisfied before putting it down again.

And as to FFIII... it looks awesome, it plays nicely (although a little difficult in places, but that might just be me) and it's well worth the money. :3

That footage is in the game???

I wouldn't have thought that was very good use of the cartridge space, myself.

Me either, but it's most definitely there. It's a huge scene you see the minute you turn on the game, so I'd guess that they probably cut-and-paste individual scenes into the game (as Grandia 2 did on the Dreamcast for a large part). The in-game graphics themselves are pretty amazing too though, and considering the huge manual size - I had another 'Pokémon moment' with it, saying "nah, this has to be in other languages..." when it's all in English - I'd say there's a fair bit to the game itself...

It definitely merits further inspection. :3
