I just finished Zero Escape and... well... the ending is rather depressing . On the other hand, a large part of the game is about time travel so that ending doesn't necessarily take place in the main timeline . And there is a third game coming out!
Final Fantasy IX was the best Final Fantasy game ever and if you think otherwise you are WRONG!
Damn you Geo I'm so tempted to check those spoilers, but I won't. I'm about 80% through myself and still chugging along. Tis a delicious game. It wasn't like 999 really needed a sequel after it ended, but I am very glad it did. Games that incorporate puzzles so seamlessly and logically into the plot are few and far between. I'm looking at you Layton. Still, I'm looking forward to polishing it off.
