So has anybody actually played the videogames?

My girlfriend let me borrow the first one for PS2 and I couldn't bring myself to play the whole thing. On a whim I bought the second one and... Damn, was it good. (It only took about 12 hours to complete.) XD It's like the perfect game for Al fans. (Given that you can collect cats for him! ♥) But anyway. Has anybody else played them?

I've looked around online and I've never found the cutscenes anywhere. If I find the means, would anybody want them if I was to uploaded them?
Current Mood: blahblah

They're floating around on YouTube. I have most of the cut scenes from the second game in my favorites. Just do a search for 'FMA, game' and it should lead you to them.

:O o rly? (Maybe I didn't think of YouTube. I'm used to going to places like File Front for game cutscenes. XD) Either way, I'll probably need them for personal use somewhere down the line; AMV making and such.

I've played the 2nd game (in Japanese... which made things a tad difficult ^^;) but not finished it (damn wind blowing thingies!) and I've played Dream Carnival which is great fun ^^

XD I think I spent a whole hour running around the wind-machine-things; especially since Al didn't want to run through them with me.

Ed: And now we RUN!
Al: I think not! *too slow*

I made sure to get that one the first time around. :3 I'm running around for the crystals right now but I've already missed two. (The one in the fight with Scar and the one in the Rockbell frontyard.)

How is Dream Carnival. I really hope it comes out here to the US. and the third game. O_o I heard you can play 2 players and your partner can control Al.

Dream Carnival reminds me of that Super Smash Brothers..and omg..I hate playing as Winry. =/ (Currently trying to unlock all characters.)

The third game..I have to say is the best of the three playing wise. You can switch to Al, but also remember that Ed will run head first into battle and die if you play as Al too long.

You have better commands for Al also, you can have him perform Alchemy of his own and make different weapons.

I really wish they would have brought this one over. =(

(Not sure about the 2 player thing..don't really have anyone to play FMA with.)

Dream Carnival is great fun!

There are always 4 characters on screen, so it can either be each character for him/herself, or you can have 2 teams of 2 with either another player or computer AI. And there's a bunch of characters to choose from too and they can be teamed up with anyone. Ed, Al, Roy, Hughes, Winry, Lust, Hawkeye, Gluttonyand Scar plus a few other secret characters.

There's also scenario mode, where there's a few different stories with different pairs of characters to play. So there's an Ed+Al scenario, Ed+Winry, Roy+Hawkeye, Al+either Scar or Greed, can't remember which ^^;

It has fun special moves that fit each character. Even if Hughes is a cheap bastard of a character who totally owns everyone else most of the time!!

I just kept making him do his special move because it cracked me up that he would lay down in order to flip through a photo album. XD

In the 3rd game, there is a 2-player mode, called Tag battle, that you can play. The main storyline is still single player.

I found Tag Battle quite attictive, well...as long as you had 2 players. You can set the 2nd player to be AI, but... the AI kinda sucks compared to having an actual person >.> I believe I could only beat the 1st of 5 levels when I had an AI partner.

The nice thing about tag battle, was that you could win items to be used in the main game. Like, the Championship Belt (I think that's the name of it? Going off memory here...and it's been a while) which is an accessory you get for beating the final level of tag battle. It ups all your stats by 100! And there's no limit to how many you can win (though....the final level....is quite difficult...amusing...but difficult. Actually, most of the levels were amusing, such as the final boss from the 2nd game randomly being an opponent in a couple of them)

On the New Game+ of the regular game, you can start unlocking new characters for Tag Battle, such as the increbily cheap duo of Mustang and Hawkeye ^^

Wow, I rambled... now I want to play Tag Battle...
*pokes S-E* bring the game over >.>

My brother and I have played both games :3. We usually beat them in 2 to 3 days a couple hours at a time :D. They were so much fun to play and beat, I enjoyed it a lot. I hope the next one comes out soon ^^

The only thing I don't like about the first game is the the three Alchemist brothers in the fight with their five suits of armor. =\

I love how similar the controls are to the Kingdom Hearts ones though. XD Oh, Squenix...

I'm really loving the second oen, never played the first, though. :(

I want the third to come out in English SOOO badly...

I have all the cutscenes from the 1st game at vg_footage. I'll record the ones from the second game eventually, but I'm not sure when. Could be a while.

X3!!! You rock! Thanks so much!

I'm playing the first one right now...it makes me laugh so much. (The pogo stick! Haha!) Not to mention the whole bit with the combat chimera...I was afraid I'd have a *third* boss fight, but thanks and no thanks to Mustang.
Then I got some twisted idea to do crack Ed/Ed Doppleganger slash.
In conclusion: gameplay annoying, story bit good and crackish!
Eeeeh, totally want to get the second game. I saw it at Target for 20 dollars, and it comes with two eps. from season two. (I don't care if it's dub!)
