Well, 10 to 12 with (apparently) the 'main game' counting as like two, and the final part of the game as two. The main game was like $8, don't know what the last part will be.

I guess it is partly price gouging, but given that they are releasing them slowly, the cost doesn't seem as much. I'll still buy it..given the amount of gameplay, that amount of money is probably not bad, given that it IS a new game (not a remake of Final Fantasy IV, but a sequel). I was thinking about it, and I'd pay that much in a heart beat if it was a DS game card, so why not for a download?

*edit*
Er, wait...Wikipedia says 9 releases...so...the first equals two chapters, the last two chapters, so...yeah, 10 then. $8 for the first two, then $3 each for the next 7...so $29 and Wikipedia says another $8 for the final part, so the total cost would be $37. Good guess then.

FF4 is the greatest RPG ever, to me personally.

I thank you so much for the coverage of this game Sage.

*side note about the Golbez discussion before, how can you NOT love a character who has such goosebump-inducing Organ music as his theme?!

But I think Fu So Ya was my favorite character- this ancient , but glorious Mage who silently watches over his kind for a seeming eternity, and Bears the payload of the main plot to the party... and well, being Cecil's uncle is quite the revelation... made all the more stark by the revelation of big brother Golby :P

Sibling rivalvry meets pure luncay. I just cant ever get enough of that game.

If this was an intentional pun, well played sir.

I wish they would release it on the DSI already....
I mean really it's a 16 bit game. they could have put it on the GBA. but the Wii is sadly a bad choice. I have a wii, with no internet connection.

I feel you there. It used to be I didn't have broadband, and I used to (and I AM serious) bring my Wii to the mall, hook it to a portable LCD I have (which happened to be a DS and a GBA TV Tuner) and use their free WiFi to download Shop Channel stuff.

This marks me as the biggest geek I know. >_<

I think that beats out me taking my 360 over to my friend's house about 25 miles away to download stuff. Of course, as fragile as the 360 is, I keep it wrapped in a thick layer of towels that I've kept in the fridge to avoid overheating.

Incidentally, I just started playing FF2/4 for the very first time last week. Just finished the battle at... the martial arts castle that starts with F that I'm too lazy to look up. I'm playing it in small spurts.

You must mean Fabul. I gotta say, given the X-Box...that is pretty brave. lol

I have wifi. but my wii is in a room with 2' thick wooden walls. I can't even get cell service in the room.

I have 4 for the gba and DS. but the DS version disappointed me. I expected to see the sprawling 50 lvl dungeon. not get 2 crappy dragons to fight.
