nope. FF12 maybe but definately not 7

12 Changed the formula.  13 really changed it to the point people would have rather it been an independant IP.

Gameplay wise.  Why the fuck is everyone here so story-oriented?!  Anyways, how is it *not* a reboot?

Breath of Fire V was easily a big departure anyways.

Yeah but so is every Final Fantasy. (From FF7 onwards at least) Do those count as reboots?

The only time when I think a reboot is actually a good idea is like what happened with Battlestar Galactica.

Except the godawful ending.

Good point about Xenogears/Saga.

The core of FF games is the same, they keep a lot in and generally follow the same routine.  BoFDQ/V was a survival RPG.  You were technically timed to beat it, and villages were mere pit stops.  I'd call it a new flavor to the series.  Not a real reboot, but a reboot in the sense the topic creator meant I think.

I think Squeeniz is big budget enough for an HD Vita release... we'll see.

Wow.... fucking tech demos... make me wish they were real footage for something.

Heavy Rain Developer's[iirc Quantum Dream's?] here... and the Tri-Ace one made me emotionally erect.

Cool. People know what otaku means.

I wouldn't judge what 'people know' from RPGFan...

And did you really revive this old thread just for that?

...and "pokémon".

Cool. People know what otaku means.

When I was in high school Jgo slang wasn't popularized at all, all anyone basically knew was "sayonara."

...and "pokémon".

I applauded Breath of Fire Vs sort-of series reboot.

Does that really count as a reboot? The games were never really connected at all other than the protagonist's name.

As for a reboot.....it would depend on the series. We've seen how the reboot for Suikoden went.
Well, truthfully, BoF1-4 were one connected timeline, which I believe went 4, 1, 2, 3. Dragon Quarter basically eschewed the whole thing.

I also agree that it depends on the series; Suikoden hasn't ridden the reboot train well.

Gameplay wise.  Why the fuck is everyone here so story-oriented?!  Anyways, how is it *not* a reboot?

Breath of Fire V was easily a big departure anyways.  You attacked your enemies for the headsup, walked the battlefield, traveled "up" the world instead of across it, couldn't fish, you mined with ants[?], Ryu spoke, Nina didn't and technically didn't have wings... basically it combined capcom's survival-horrors with RPG -- I mean, your fucking saves were limited.

I can't remember if they said V *does* take place in the same timeline or world... but, I mean, it doesn't really matter since there was no real proof in-game.  Basically, all it had the same was Dragons and Gooeys, and a blonde and a blue-nette.... and a term like "zenny".

Rap battle!

I'd pay for that.

I'd call it...bacon and eggs planet!

I was at best buy today and saw them. Case looks awesome.

There's a rumor this game might be co-op. If so... PS3 all the way.

If not then 360.

I thought peeps preferred online stuff in the X3shitty.

It'd be stupid if people thought this as guaranteed fact though... Why would different companies show a release with a lip of press release?

Oh 4Chan...
