    Lies!

    All I get to do is put points into some pre-determined development paths with 1 or 2 off-shoots from the main branch. All my roles are level 6. There are no other roles!!

    You do unlock all classes, and the points pent in the classes you earn, take tons of points to earn abilities compared to before. Also the more levels of the crystarium, the more the branches spread out. It's always the same with these types of systems too. Be it FFX or FFXII, of course you're going to just eventually earn everything.

    the game is really really pretty. sometimes i'll just pose lightning ( <3 ) in front of nice scenery and have it on the screen while i take a break/do something else (cause apparently for whatever reason, the game doesn't have a hold of me like ME2 did..)

    It's the same feeling for me, but they're two different meals for me. ME is that instant gratification with rewarding conversation, so I think of Sushi. Action RPG with little in the way of character progression for stats and abilities, so it's like the meal is ready once the fish is dead. But 13 is the slow-cooked meal that I can enjoy even while it's cooking, then love it when it's time to eat :D

    Chapter 10 is when all the roles open up. Be warned, all the other roles need massive amounts of CP to upgrade, a lot more than the default ones.

    And Chapter 11 is when things open up...I probably said this before, can't remember. Be warned because you will be grinding.

    Yeah, I'm not upgrading anything past the first three roles.

    I don't mind grinding. I want to do hunts and nothing else. I probably won't finish the game until I'm done hunting.

    You may have to progress a little in Chapter 11 to open up more hunts. I mean before there were some I could access...some you really have to hunt for, Gran Pulse is huge but more seemed to open up once I completed Taejin's Tower. I finished that up and had to face this boss with like 2 million hp, died a few times, lost patience and walked all the way back to the main Gran Pulse area to do stuff. Too bad that trek takes a good hour or so...ugh.

    And max out your main roles, at least as far as you can before doing the secondaries...because soon even the main roles will start requiring 12K CP just to advance one node. Where I'm at, it's taking 8K or so...and there's another level after THAT so you know it'll get worse.

    Advance Warning: There is a sort of miniboss in the underground Pulse area named Boxed Phalanax. This thing is gay. Defense out the wazoo, insane amount of hp and comes with 3 mini enemies and he can buff them up pretty darn well and can call more. If you don't slap some debuffs on him and chain him so you can do big damage, you'll be in for a long fight. Just giving those who haven't reached him a warning.

    Well I bought the CE guide so if you need any info about where to find some Hunts or what not, let me know. I usually don't buy guides but FF is kind of the exception. Especially with some of the awesome artwork here.

    So what exactly makes the PS3 version superior to the 360 one?

    I'm on chapter 7 now. So far what are the best items that enemies drop for upgrading weapons? Trying to upgrade some of the other characters weapons.

    There's more self-shadowing and higher texture res. 360 has farther filter distance. PS3 runs at a higher native resolution.

    The Pre-rendered movies on 360 are a lot grainier too, they did a lot of compression to fit it all on 3 DVDs.

    Not sure if we know for sure but Skillz was saying the 360 cutscenes differ a little from time to time? Like some stuff was actually taken out?

    That's only on a scene or two, and only a couple seconds. Pretty sure it's just internet hyperbole.

    I take it back. Difficulty increase may be bad on Chapter 11 but the next chapter is even worse. You also don't get the chance to go back to Pulse until Chapter 13 so be warned. Except for maybe 10 or so Hunts that are crazy tough, you should be able to do the rest before finishing the game. I personally completed nearly 40 or so before even getting to Chapter 12.

    Chapter 11 seems like an eternity away from where I am now (ch 4)
