Can't seem to fill up the Total Critical thing all the way. The first couple parts of the not-alternate-path always stay like half filled :(

also my team is Lightning, Onion Knight, Bartz, and Zidane. The sentences they string together are great because they always start super upbeat and end on a dour note

4, too, which had The After Years.

Well at this point, it really should be said that it's pretty much every game since VII.

Not only that but IV had after years as you mentioned as well as V having the Legend of The Crystal OVA. In fact each game aside from VI, VII and IX have had story extensions. It could be argued that while IX didn't didn't have a story extension that it shouldn't count as it's theme and feel was used as the base for the Crystal series and even had a Stilzskin (sp?) crossover.

Depends.

Zidane, Tidus, Butz, and Onion Knight for FMS. Though sometimes I throw a character from the game that's represented in for the character bonus.

Cloud, Shantotto, Warrior of Light, and random fellow/lady for BMS.

Are unlockable characters considered spoilers for this game? Just out of an abundance of caution...

Is it weird that I thought Faris was Edgar the first time I saw her? Her sprites all have purple hair in FF5, but I guess the original concept art was blonde.

I haven't actually unlocked her yet, so if you'll excise me...

Haven't seen those silver notes that add extended mode (I forget what it's called) in a while. How do those work?

Love how Vaan says "I'm Basch!" in the title screen.

Terra / Cecil / Bartz / Onion Knight

Swapping in Vaan once in a while, but the shirtless chibi scares me.

So which number determines a dark note's difficulty? Is it the "No. XX" or the "Mv.XX"?

So I have Terra/Zidane/Cecil/Onion Knight :)

Really liking this so far. I didn't play Elite Beat but I loved the crap outta Taiko no Tatsujin on the DS. Wish the Hori stand I bought for my DSi hugged the 3DS properly but ah well.

This game is only gonna get better on the 3DS XL. *drool*

The note charts are messed up in so many places. Theme of Love is a mess (in whatever the regular story mode difficulty is). The holds end at such an awkward and off tempo place.

I general I have this problem with the Event tracks, I think just because they tend to be much slower.

I'll ask again, lol.

Is there any purpose of playing through the "series" and "challenge" mode once you've played through all songs at least once and start with Chaos Shrine?
You unlock Expert and Ultimate difficulty levels by getting rank A or better on the songs in Challenge mode.

Also, you'll probably have a better time actually beating those stages than the Dark Notes, and thus gaining more character levels, items, and Rhythmia.

Absolutely! I'm already charging twice today with 4 and a half hours of gameplay. Or maybe it seems to be going by quick because I haven't played with my 3DS in awhile and forgotten how short battery life was.

Glad I'm not the only one to notice this. In the last day, I've had to charge my 3DS three times from playing this game alone.

Nyko Power Pak + turn the 3D slider down all the way = profit

Even then though the battery life is still abysmal. And the Wii U controller battery life is going to be even worse...ugh...

This game is fantastic. The "normal" difficulty is too easy, but the dark notes give you a run for your money. The presentation is also top notch, with cute character designs, hilarious dialogue, and exciting visuals during a song. I never thought I'd see a FFXIII cutscene on the 3DS. I need to unlock Eyes on Me.

This game is selling out FAST. I went to three different stores today trying to find a copy for a friend, all sold out.

Shades of the Japanese release.
