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)

So i was wondering after completing the games and unlocking pretty much everything,when you want to start another playthrough,do you load your saves and replay with all the power-ups or start from the very beggining?


Almost all the times i do the former,with the exception one time (I think?) of replaying the first game from the very beginning after many years cause i didn't remember anything.But next time I might try to replay FF4 (in a very false optimistic attempt to practise my japanese)  from the very beginning.I would like to play it in nightmare difficulty though but is that an option,or you can only choose higher difficulty if you load a save?I honestly don't remember..


So yeah I would like to hear your opinion and also if anyone remembers if we can play in nightmare mode without load(unlockables,upgrades) it would be helpful.

I just checked FF3 and you can start a new game on Nightmare mode without loading a previous save (as long as you've unlocked Nightmare mode already), and as far as I remember, FF4 is the same. I assume if you do that you'll have to be careful not to save over your previous clear file, or you'll lose all your costumes and unlockables.


I always prefer a new game plus because I like spending my time exploring, not crying over difficult fights, but I'd be morbidly curious to see someone attempt a Nightmare mode runthrough with no upgrades. Especially for FF3! That would earn its name.

I tend to be halfway through a playthrough when I pick up the game after a hiatus, or i'm showing someone new the game so I tend to start over.

I do have a memory card with my first few playthroughs and all the unlock and ghost list progress for the ps2 games somewhere though!

I'm like Mid, I prefer to load a save game plus so that I have plenty of film and everything, and don't have to stress about battles. I want to own those ghosts and continue my exploring without panic haha.


(who am i kidding though, i always panic when a ghost shows up, even if I have a fully upgraded camera.)
