Post so it's finally time for me to play FFIV (2 on SNES)
I haven't finished a FF game since the original (and Mystic Quest on the SNES)...

And I've always wanted to play what was . I noticed today that Overstock.com is having a , so I browsed through the items. Some of the prices are absurd (Bully on X360 for under $16), and I noticed two DS games I'm interested in for pretty cheap.

Turns out, they've got Final Fantasy IV for under $23 (that's with shipping), which is quite a bit less than I've seen it anywhere, even used.

So I figured I'd post about it here, because I'm interested in the thoughts/opinions of anybody who has ever played (any version of) FFIV, and because I figured if anybody was thinking about getting it, for themselves or as a Christmas gift, they'd be glad to see such a good deal.

Great game. Great story. You will not be disappointed. I think I will be picking this up as well for such a cheap price.

Personally it is my 2nd fav FF game. First is FF6 aka FF3 in the US. 4 is super awesome though. I haven't totally completed the DS version but so far I'd say it is the definitive version of the game. At least it is to me.

This purchase will not disappoint.

Assuming I get through this game and am in the mood for more RPG fun...

Should I shell out the $55 for the boxed SNES copy of Chrono Trigger that's available at the local used game shop, or just snag the $30 DS port?

DS port. It has the SNES original in there, or you can play the expanded DS version. It barely affects anything, so just play the new version.

SO FAR, I'm hearing that the DS port is very solid. But nostalgia is a bitch, and it won't feel exactly how you remembered if you're faking it.

*shrug* Might be worth it to pick up the snes copy now and sell it back when you get older as the value (hopefully) increases?

Any other opinions? I know KRIS has the portable copy for DS.

I would go DS, especially since you don't have any attachments to the original.

Holy wrong - in just about every FF game, XP is split evenly (ish) between everybody left alive in your party. FFIV is not an exception.

So yes, an enemy worth 2000 XP would give 500 to each person in a party of four, and after battle, it will say "500 XP" gained instead of 2000 - none of the FF games will ever make you calculate the amount each person gets in your head.

Unlike Breath of Fire, but that's a story for another day.

Ok. Because I was confused, and none of the exhaustive guides on GameFaqs seems to address it.

I wouldn't even have thought to ask, but the first two times I killed the Dark Dragon, it was with three of my party members KO'd. So I got this whopping (39000+) amount of EXP, and I was like f**k this, I want my whole party to level up.

Then when I did it with everybody still alive, the EXP dropped to like 9900, and I was confused.

Confused, confused, so I asked here.
