Dirge of Cerberus was more aimed to be an third person shooting than turn based. XII wasnt as much as a turn based either, they tried it as an Action RPG, which is one reason why I didnt like it. It was too slow for an Action RPG IMO. Im not even looking forward to XIII nor Versus XIII.
Yeah, thats Gackt.
Oh yeah, Advent Children Complete came out a couple of days back (June 2 IIRC), its suppose to cost $40, but you can get it at Walmart
for $23. I recommend it, also for FFVII fans, even if they saw the original. Theres new scenes, they re-rendered everything, added effects like blood, changed a couple of scenes (like Cloud Vs Sephiroth). I probably saw this movie about 5-6 times since it came out, but not as much as the original which was about 10 times or so.
I dont know if its worth $40 for you, but not to me since I already got the Japanese one and saw it already. You need an Blu-Ray player just to watch it. I don't have an Blu-Ray player, but I know people that do.
I beat FFVII 4 times, Dirge of Cerberus 2 times (2nd time to get the 'G' files), Crisis Core 2 times (about to be my 3rd), and saw Advent children 15 times (combined of AC and ACC). Thats more than any other FF games I played. I never beat VIII or IX, got to the last boss, but then got bored of it. In X, Yuna was somehow my strongest, I got most of the celestial weapons and almost mastered the sphere grids for Wakka, Yuna, and Tidus... Oh so much free time.
