TheJake : (31 May 2019 - 09:27 PM) In FF4, are spirit points only used for the shop?  It seems like you just need these crystals for upgrades, but I'm not 100% sure. :P
Kicksville : (02 June 2019 - 01:29 PM) The save point shop and the post-game shop after you're done (for costumes and such)

Only ten years late, but I don't think we've had a thread about this before, so what did everyone think of the doll list sidequest in FF4? Did it make you look around more? Would you like it if they had something similar in future games, or would you rather it stayed as a one-time thing?

I actually really really liked it, hunting for dolls quickly became one of my favorite activities in the game, even more so when you get the upgrade that rings a subtle bell when you are near one. I mean we already had the traditional hidden ghosts to look for, but having an extra side quest of stuff to look out for, just made it more fun and made for even more replay value. I can't tell how many times I discovered one in a place I had run past multiple times and felt both stupid and accomplished xD

I was really sad to see it (and almost everything else that made FF fun) go in FF5...

It’s one of my favourite things about 4, their placements could get really fun and creative, even creepy.  I was hoping it would become a staple of the series, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.  

 

Also, the camera chime for them is oddly relaxing.

I thought it was a pretty neat idea. It gave you more to do in the game, so it didn't seem like too much of a chore or anything. It's pleasantly challenging and I like that you get rewards from it.

I hope there are more sidequests in the future.

I also did enjoy it!

 

It gave you more reasons to look around and notice all the little (beautiful in case of ff4) details in your first playthrough,without becoming a chore (like Rin also said) to complete it in the second playthrough by having the radar thingy navigating you.

Yay, it seems like there's a fair bit of agreement on this topic, and I'm glad! I like this sidequest too - it's nice and low-pressure and doesn't end in a boss fight, and even now it still encourages me to look at the environments more carefully. I'll always be a little sad they didn't add something similar to DCB. It would have been so easy! But I hope it's something they'd at least consider doing again one day, if they make more games.

I hear ya. I would sometimes hear the bell go off, but couldn't immediately see the doll, but my pride would then kick in and I'd be like "I know you are here SOMEWHERE, and I ain't leavin until I find ya!" xD
