Oh neat, I did also get The DS FFTA2 aswell, but this one does look more appealing, considering how good FF5 looks on the emulator, I might give it ago sooner :The game means a lot to me. One day my dad gave it me along with a copy of KHII. I remember him telling me that finding an actual copy of FFTA was very difficult. I still have the actual game, but lack the system for it. The only system I have, my DS lite, is completely out of commission.
I am also using the same emulator, but how did you get a controller to work with it? I would much prefer that over the keyboard
And lastly, I have always liked the sort of "tactical" format of these grid games, like Fire Emblem and X-com, however, this one has always stuck out to me and is the one I remember playing the most of.
Good luck with your game experience
