Now you're playing with gas.

Have Quetzacotl learn Card and start transforming random enemies, there's always the off chance they'll transform into a wicked awesome card that you can transform again into mountains of high level junctionable magic.

Defeated the second gym, now chasing Plasma grunts through Pinwheel Forest. Tra-la-la-la-la. Also got the Liberty Ticket to get Victini.

My copy of FFVIII has a scratch on one of the discs (which I got second-hand). Right during the (SPOILER) Battle of the Gardens, too...

I can remember playing a game called 'Triple Triad', it also featured a minigame which was some kind of JRPG, it was about planting seeds in a garden to fight a sorceress or something. I mainly played it for the card game.

I'm Batman wrote: FFXII International.
fffffff

I still haven't tried the two New Game modes on that.



I just finished Dead Space: Extraction (PS3 version included with Dead Space 2), might try to get 5 star ranks on every level but I've not decided yet. Kind of feel like it would be easier collecting items and such with an actual Move controller (or two for the 2 player).

I wish I could play my FFX International properly - more than almost anything in the world. ._.

Actually, you might be a good person to ask! o_o

I'm pretty sure I know the answer already, but I want to be ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN before I make a purchase - will this console play this game?

I want to make sure I won't need any power adapters or anything, and to make absolutely certain that my other American games will still function. ;.;

@Megs: I might not be a good person to ask I've only ever imported one machine (Japanese SCPH-50000), and don't have any experience with these new models.

But I guess whether you'll need a power adapter or not depends on if it's a modded Japanese SCPH-90000 or an American one. And if you need an adapter to run Japanese things in the US, I don't know about that

If you do need an adapter for Japanese electronics, I'm not sure how that'd work out if the AC adapter is built in (which I assume means the power cable is fixed into the console?).


Edit; but maybe this video will help answer if you need a new power adapter? (skip to 2:30, it shows the rear of the machines)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUw-LcfkVes

Edit 2nd; actually, maybe just reading the description would help:

"This SCPH-90000 works on American AC power and plays games just like a US PS2."

So I guess you could just plug it in like any other appliance and go?
