Tried this one out for the first time today. The intro movie and soundtrack are absolutely superb for a PSP title. The game itself, although initially confusing, seems to contain some original and genuinely well-designed combat, exceeding my expectations by far.
It seems I have completed the prologue with The Warrior of Light (also known as the dim-whitted but lethal 'Fighter' in certain circles). This game is mad confusing with all of its point systems. Aside from HP, you have Purchase Points (PP) used to unlock stuff, Ability Points (AP) used to upgrade abilities (moves), Capacity Points (CP), determining how many abilities you can equip, Destiny Points (DP) used to move in story mode, Story Points (SP) which are converted to rewards at the end of a story, Experience Points (EXP) used for levelling and thus gaining new Abilities, and obviously, GIL, used for ... buying stuff, I guess. Also, there are Accomplishments (~ achievements). My head's about to explode. But in a good way... My next story (called Destiny Odyssey) will feature the Dark Knight/Paladin Cecil Harvey from FF4.
Completed Destiny Odyssey IV (the cool-looking Cecil) and VII (Cloud and his ginourmous sword).
Completed Destiny Odyssey II. After grinding a bit, the rest was easy. Man, that Firion and his roses...
Completed Destiny Odyssey X with the annoying little Tidus and his much cooler (albeit slightly evil) dad, Jecht.
Completed Destiny Odyssey VIII with the moping loner, Squall.
Upgrading the firmware made my savegame useless. Great. What kind of evil motherf...ers would make savegames incompatible between firmware versions?
It seems the firmware upgrade only breaks savegames, if you run a game on the wrong firmware (i.e. on a hacked firmware). Anyways, after spending copious amounts of time, I managed to fix my broken savegame. You can read about it on my wiki.
Completed Destiny Odyssey IX. I'm so relieved that my savegame works... :)
Completed Destiny Odyssey V. I didn't really like Bartz. Coincidentally, I've started skipping every cutscene, because the story is so horrible.
Completed Destiny Odyssey VI with Terra, the magic girl...
Completed Destiny Odyssey I with 'Fighter'.
Completed Shade Impulse Chapter 1 with my level 31 Onion Knight while riding the plane from Aalborg to Copenhagen.
