Because I have problems I kept him in his tiny form for like a decade because you could ride him and it was adorable. I would just squeal "Tiny shark!" every time I summoned him.

It's honestly upsetting that the larger form doesn't have Joyride (unless I missed it). Why do you let me ride tiny shark but not turboshark?!

Managed to win the Magitek mini game within 20 turns for the Maduin scene/memento on my second try. Put your guys in corners and get lucky with finding the enemies fast. You need this momento for the "Imprism all mirages" trophy I think, and it's definitely the most annoying mini game related thing. The trophy for the game itself is just winning 10 games of it. Easy.

The Tidus mini game trophy was the hardest until I realized there wasn't really a time limit and you could just go for the easy shots. The other 2 trophies were simple and easy. You don't actually need to win the Intervention quest version of the Cactuar game. The bedroom version is a proper game and not ENTIRELY based on luck like the intervention version. It gives you an extra scene though so it's cool.

fuck this shit. They're both dying. At least Malboro is.

I tried to be nice

Yo that was what happened to me with that fight.

"I'll imprism them both!

...

...alright fuck this, y'all is dead."

It's such a weird oversight considering if you stack on turboshark you're literally riding on him.

I literally just met them (I assume it was them, since they totally murdered me in seconds flat). I can already see this being my reaction too.

I know! It makes no sense. And for that matter, why don't the cool dragons get Joyride? IT'S A DRAGON, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

Yeah screw that I just killed the Marlboro and othet thing. I'll just evolve them through the tree somewhere.

Alwo about Ifrit, Ramuh and Shiva. I presume the extra box I have on them are their alt gender versions? But if that's the case what are the ither thinge I can transfig them into?

Yes they all hit you at once basically. You can skip them, but they're required for the platinum.

Really? Damn. That and the collect all treasure chest trophy means I might not bother going for plat then. I'll see how I get on in them

Tama, shut up with your "the's!"
For once I actually like the mascot character in Tama. I find all the 'the's' amusing. The scene with Shelke made laugh even if I have no idea who she is

Baby versions. Kid versions. Gender swap versions. Adult versions.
The adult versions are just non unique versions of Ifrit, Shiva, and Ramuh.

Then there's a cousin line that appears to be alternate versions of the Baby, Kid, and Adult form, but there's no gender swap form. You can transfig into these at some point. haven't done it yet myself. I think they're post game related.

Then there's the 3 Unique ones from the Coliseum.

Oh it's the cousin versions I had no idea about. I've got the S, M, L versions of all three at the moment and done the Coliseum to get the story ones as well. The alt gender they mention are presumably the 4th box that is still dark. It was the extra ones I was unsure of.

Quite interested in seeing these cousin ones now!

No pro patch. Game wouldn't really need it, I can't think it would add anything, it's not a visually demanding game. The only thing I could think of is if they tried to go for native 4K.

This game could need better AA. Supersamling would help alot to be honest.

Yep - this looks like dogshit on Pro at the moment. My first pro disappointment. I spotted it straight away. Loads of aliasing and the depth of field and blur in some scenes is way off.

I fired it up on my old system to check and yep - it was fine there on the same 1080p TV. Maybe it looks okay on a 4K screen?

Anyway I came with screenshots from both systems -

Standard PS4 with 1.01 patch -


PS4 Pro with 1.01 patch - Screenshots set to 1080p to match standard - I have 4K screenies too - they look like crap too!


The aliasing at high contrast edges looks real bad and Tama is almost blurred out of existence. Please fix for the love of god Square Enix.

I haven't played a ton of the game so far, but I keep going through these waves of loving Tama then despising her.
Also hey game I get Lann is the dumb one! You don't have to remind me in every conversation, that's how you ruin a reoccurring joke.

That bridge is awful. How far am I through the game?

My stacks are finally settled now that I got enough of the mainstays to coast me through the game.

Update on this one guys - looks like it's patch 1.01 that is causing the weird graphical issues. Rolling the game back to 1.00 takes away online battling, but it means the game is a hell of a lot prettier (as it was on OG PS4). Now, we just wait for Pro support and/or a fix for the aliasing issues on the Pro. Not ideal, but better than nothing :)

Can someone help me finish postscript? I finished all intervention quests but have no idea how to get the trophy for
Turn Those Corners Up.

Gotta go to the main part of town and talk to seraphia and start the post script story. Save before talking to her as it'll toss you into the final 4 boss fights with no saving between the last 4 bosses.

Yeah this whole minigames thing is bonkers. This game is giving me the same feeling Bravely Default did down the homestretch. I really enjoyed it a lot and I should probably just walk away but I'm definitely going to see it through to the bitter end.

Dafuq. The aliasing is bad enough on standard PS4. But this looks like something no one looked at before they released it haha.

I'd expect this game to be able to hit 4k native without frame drops. (They mentioned sometime ago the standard PS4 game would have some frame drops. Which I don't get given it's basically a prettied up PSVita game)

Playing on a 4K TV with a pro and the game looks fine to me. Depth of field definitely looks stronger but I'm not seeing the weird aliasing as in the screenshots above.

Even that looks pretty bad'ish. Doesn't quite look like native 4k. The edges of objects and the eyes look weird. I wonder if this game is using something like CBR..

So.. I used up all of my Bestow Reflect items from the store, went and bought some more at the Chocobo Mart or whatever, went back into the battlefield to use them to capture a mirage and... suddenly no more of those items exist in my inventory or store??? There's just a blank space in my Battle Items section and I can no longer purchase any more, wtf.

I'm in Chapter 21 if it matters, but I feel like it shouldn't. What is going on? Is this a bug?

I think a bit too many enemies in this game are weak to lightning. If you have a lightning Mirage and pair up with another Mirage that boosts magic you can steamroll a really large number of bosses and enemies even underleveled.

Along with that, there SURE are a lot of Water-based enemies. And I'm so weak to lightning because I'm using like...almost all water Mirages in my stacks. You can't fucking give me
Ultros
and be like "Go ahead and use someone else, I dare you"

Currently I'm leveling my mirages to transfig them to get the forms in my mirage manual.

On a mirages ability list, if the ability is green, what does that mean?

If you "evolve" your mirage to another form, it'll keep abilities from its other forms EXCEPT the green ones.

For example, Chocochick has [green]Stroll[/green] and Chocobo has [green]Joyride[/green]. If the mirage is currently in 'chick form, he can walk with you; if he's currently in 'bo form, you can ride him.

What. The. Hell. Is. Up. With. All. These. Minigames. It's as if they thought the FFX ones weren't bad enough. At least there was some skill and pattern repetition making the butterfly and lightning dodge pretty once you know what you're doing. And as bad as the RNG was on that stupid chocobo baloon race, it has NOTHING on this game.

My God. Well at least I know now that I'm not gonna bother with platinum. Just gonna finish the game and do some of the side content.

Alright now you're scaring me. Haven't gotten to the mini-games yet. I didn't think they'd ever top the annoying mini-games of X... I thought this shit was made with children in mind?! xD

They're not all that bad. There's a Lightning Speed Run one that's perfectly fine but half the other's I just quit and skipped since I just could not be be bothered to deal with the RNG. This is someone who wasn't that bothered by FFX minigames where my primary annoyance were the poor controls of the chocobo itself.

You're only forced to play them once each, and even then you can skip them from the start menu, so if you just want to finish the game they're relatively painless. That said, they have one trophy each, and sadly even if you don't care about that there are completion rewards in the form of mirages.
