Exciting, but ultimately pointless.

A what!?

Edit: Oh, Little Mermaid reference. Man, I'm so dumb when I'm at work! No mermaids, but there are crabs and sharks!
Hey man. I wouldn't write it off that could be a really funny easter egg at least lol.

Well, I do have goofy little secrets littered throughout the game so far. The most obvious one is the Terra/Arvis' house in Crescent Village. There's an EXTREMELY well hidden dialogue string that references a stand-up routine by Louis C.K. word for word, and I doubt anyone will ever find it. It's just kind of there for my own amusement. I also have a Skyrim reference in the game somewhere, but I can't remember where or what it was.

Edit: Oh yeah, there's also an NPC who is dressed VERY similarly to Mario.

Oof, these sort of inter-brand "easter eggs" hurt the integrity of fan-games, if you ask me. Just makes it seem like less of a serious project and more of a young gamer's wet dream, you know what I mean? Hopefully, the Skyrim reference isn't that awful "arrow to the knee" crap and I'm hoping the guy who looks like Mario doesn't act like him, talk like him, or in any way other than appearance, remind players of him. At least they're not playable characters.

THEY'RE NOT, RIGHT?

The Skyrim reference was so minor that I forget it, so yeah. The Mario guy is just a recoloured bearded shopkeep who wears blue and red, really. He doesn't even have dialogue, just a shop window.

I don't think it hurts anything, really. Video games have always parodied pop culture to some extent. Final Fantasy has always parodied pop culture, so it's not too unusual that I'd do the same. Plus 99% of them will probably be vague and just look like normal lines of dialogue to most people. Two examples:


Zephyr: "Markim, what's it gonna do?"
Markim: "Zephyr, it's hard to say. It's malfunctioning, it may not do anything."


Hautley: "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into!"


Anyway, there were countless references and such in the first game as well that even the LPers didn't even seem to notice. I know how to handle them without them being tacky.

It would be a cool reference actually since it's 25th anniversary of The Little Mermaid.

As long as they're so minor that only eagle-eyed players will notice them, then I think they're fine (like that anime robot in the background of the Gold Saucer in FF7).

Yeah, they're all pretty minor. I don't even know what anime robot you're talking about, so that one must've been for REALLY keen eyes.

99% of mine are dialogue rather than graphical, too.
Now if fire spells had less effect in the water and electric and water spells did more damage. Terrain bonuses, yay! :D
Yeah, if this was going for a more realistic approach, fire spells wouldn’t work very well; electric spells would do double the damage and hit both the party and the enemy targets at the exact same time; and wind and earth based magic would be extremely devastating down there.

But it’s a Final Fantasy game, I digress.

(Also mad props for actually having the characters ACTUALLY wear the proper head gear for this section this time around. Too bad that Sabin, Cyan and Gau didn't get the memo back then, lol.)
They had one helmet, what were they supposed to do? They couldn't cram all their heads into the one so they decided to put their blitzball training to good use!

Well, the party has to go on a little mini quest for the diving gear, so they damn will better wear it!

And magic may not behave differently underwater, but the monsters that are weak to say fire and thunder may not like being hit by those elements too much. The boss in particular may or may not raise a stink about being hit by his weakness.
Seafood Soup is super delicious (if by Seafood Soup you mean Clam Chowder)

Does that hint towards the possibility of Uncle Ulty returning once again? :O

Oh, I've got a lot of iconic names to call upon without needing to resort to Ultros! I have the Espers being dicks to thank for that.
Odin! He typically doesn't like being hit by his weakness.
