Tabata talks more about magic in Final Fantasy XV and Regis' redesign -- Nova Crystallis

Summary [by Nova Crystallis] of the interview from Spieletester with Hajime Tabata:

The reason wasn't that King Regis previous design didn't fit in the game, Tabata actually liked it and said that they have a good reason for it, though it's a huge spoiler for the rest of the game so they won't tell you why yet. They are going to reveal what's not the case soon.

Magic is usually activated by special rings the characters will be able to wear. It won’t come from the characters hands, instead you will manipulate the elements in the environment.

There are two types of magic in the game. One of them being that only those from the Lucis family can use.

Magic is about 60% complete. It works in-game, though they aren't happy with the visual effects yet.

The dog featured in the 'Dawn' trailer is a messenger for one of the characters.

No one hears the fans who don't speak, and the loud fans are usually the ones who make or break your brand.

None of that is as black and white as you make it appear to be.

The point I was making however is more of an issue within a section of the fanbase that stubbornly believes that Souls is exclusively about hardcore PvP encounters when the entire series pushes itself forward on its lore, PvE, Online Co-Op, exploration, experimentation and so on.

- POSITIVE: Final Fantasy X-2 is one of the best JRPGs ever made in the history of the world.  NEGATIVE: Its plot exposition is ridiculous.

Is as ridiculous as VII, VIII and X allowed X-2 to be ridiculous. Which incidentally, is all thanks to the chaotic writing of Kazushige Nojima in all four games with a few other staff members. Him and Masato Kato are not my favorites writers but lots of fans love their work.

That being said, is cool that XV only uses the script Nojima wrote for Versus only as reference.

- NEGATIVE: The Shin Megami Tensei series is the most pretentious pile of festering self-obsession in the JRPG market.  Guess what guys? You're pretty much playing Pokemon. Don't pretend it's cool just because it's occult.  Leave that attitude behind when you turn 20, please.  POSITIVE: The Persona series has some seriously great character building and design.

Get out of here with that noise man. :p

The "no fucking around" nature of SMT is not pretentious at all. Is just an RPG that has confidence in what it does, and that's something JRPGs in general could use more instead of throwing moe and fanservice at our faces.

Also, SMT and Persona haven't had anything to do with each other after the first Persona. There's no "better" than the other in this case.

It's pretty much as you said; it's Megaman. You learn everything on the spot and if you fail to adapt, you die.
Although Dark Soul fans would probably say that Megaman is the Dark Souls of Side-scrolling action platformers ;)

The "Is the Dark Souls of..." kind of descriptions have always been are the worst. What's worse than that though is putting all Souls fans in the same bag with the loud, elitist mofos that are an annoyance in the same fanbase they are a part of.

"Final Fantasy VII - The Visual Novel"

I'm okay with this.

I don't know if I'm okay with that personally. I mean even with the few cool moments the games has, VII's story is very odd overall. I honestly ended up wondering if that entire journey was worth anything with the way it ended in each of my three playthroughs (despite of the fun I did had with the game).

Metal Gear is the most overrated series of all time.  Metal Gear Solid isn't a good action game or a good stealth game.  The best parts about Metal Gear are when the writers deliberately troll the player (i.e. Raiden in MGS2, Mantis in MGS1), but the gameplay and story are both subpar.

The entire souls series (and Bloodborne) feel janky and are downright un-fun to play.



We can't all have good taste I guess.

PS4 Getting Acclaimed Stealth Game République Next Year -- GameSpot

"All five episodes coming in one package to the PlayStation Store."

Nice. I'll finally be able to check this one out for myself.

Pretty much everyone noticed those dongpits not just because of the location, but the shape. I imagine someone would only ignore it if they wanted to be a passive aggressive jackass.

Labelling soemone like that for such a thing is a bit too much I think.

Doesn't Zone of the Enders have a literal 'cock pit'?

Real talk. Only awkward people found that funny. Either way, Zone of the Enders is ideally the one series that should make a comeback from Konami.

Oh yeah, I've almost beaten FFX before and was pretty damn sick of it by the end. But that was years ago and I did a lot of things to make things harder for myself...

Don't blame yourself. X in every version has poorly designed busy work and a lot of unnecessary weight to it.

In order of approachability: FFX, FFV, FFVII, FFIX, FFII, FFXII

I would not say that X is that approachable with how unbearable (or tedious in the worst cases) the game gets if you are not really, really into it.

Now. With V and IX, both of them even with their shortcomings are some of the most solid games from the main series and are also approachable at all levels. I pick/recommend those two to anybody.
