When are companies gonna realize we just wanna make out our own heroes and heroines.

A character creator can be counterproductive in the long run for a tradicional JRPG.

@Dice: Hmm... no. No, that's not good. I like this one better but... I don't know. SO5 has the weirdest screenshots I've ever seen.

The environments look like a Skyrim mod and the transition the character designs have from 2D to 3D seems uneven (by that I mean sometimes it looks good, others not so much). And as a fan of Akiman's art that's disappointing.

Hope it looks better once everything is done because I can tell there's lots of work to do.

You never know. Japanese companies can be mysterious.

You probably forgot that we are talking about Final Fantasy here and not Dragon Quest. So, yeah.

i suspect SE wants a piece of the tournament scene. and theres also rumblings of a partnership between SE and capcom.

Gunslinger Stratos 2 got Street Fighter costumes. Based on that most likely Capcom is gonna have FF costumes for SFV. Now, the partnership being more than just that? We can only guess really.

Look at how many people abandoned FF when 7 came out

Errrr what? Which version of history are you living in?

VII, X and XIII mark cycles in the life of the series with generations of new and old fans coming and going for a multitude of reasons. Is nothing new really, and XV is gonna continue that "tradition".

Series like Madden and Call of Duty are poster children of brand loyalty.

Funny to think that at one point in time Call of Duty (namely 1 and 2) were fairly clever and well-designed games with a vision behind them. The original Modern Warfare was the only other one that got close to that, and since then series became massively popular and every new entry has no more value than fast food when everything is said and done. Though, the cultural impact the games have had does count for something... I guess.

I'm convinced youre doing this on purpose, in some andy kauffman level long form troll job.

This is hands down the best realization ever made on this forum. You sir are my new favorite person!

Pff~

@Alisha: I noticed that the first time I saw the opening. Dunno why this is mentioned on a XV thread though. In any case, it was a nice touch.

There are absolutely fantastic chapters that live up to Mikami's legacy, and then there are the action heavy stages that feel completely at odds with the mechanics.

If that were the case then TEW would suffer from the same elements that RE5 did despite being a solid game. TEW's pacing and design lends itself perfectly well with the way action is handled by being a middle point between REmake and RE4 (which incidentally were games that Mikami directed).

Also going back to RE5 for a bit, all the experimentation that Capcom has done since then did paid off big time with REvelations 2 to be good as it is.

In case you don't know or remember; Dragon's Dogma already has armor sets from Berserk, and Dark Souls 1 has plenty of references going on from Berserk as well to make it an adaptation if one chooses to see it that way.

I'm not feeling this one very much sadly. I wanted that ruthlessness side of both FE and MegaTen back, not 'J-Pop: The JRPG'. Persona already covers that pretty well.

Who knows though. In the strange chance I manage to get a Wii U at all, I ended up trying it and loving it. Wouldn't be strange anyway since it doesn't particularly looks like the kind of RPG I would dislike. Then again... by the time it comes out Deus Ex Universe and Cyberpunk 2077 are finally shown to the public and I lose any interest in this. We'll see.

Guess nobody knows then...

No, not really. And I'm not Hideo Kojima either if you are wondering.

@glassjawsh: One thing you mention there doesn't go with other IMO. Glad you are enjoying yourself either way.

Does anybody knows if they are gonna have the JP and EN dubs in the final version, or do they still give their classic default answer of 'we are looking into it, but is not gonna happen'?

My skill level with this type of game (namely action games which require precise controls and a lot of exploring/map awareness) tends to be pretty lackluster, and it just doesn't seem to offer enough of a reward (story) to keep me hooked.  For me, it's not worth the tenacity that would be necessary for me to get good.

That's a shame. u_u

Though, I used to be like that. I needed that narrative reward as some sort of excuse to keep me interested, but later I decided to leave my comfort zone and push my skills to get better overall with the types of games/genres I like the most, which more often than not require a certain level of skill I wanted to develop at one point, and I got to work on it putting aside the shallow taste in games I had before. It has been rewarding getting a real sense of the mechanics and understand how important things like 'friction' and 'tempo' are in a game.

Is totally cool if you don't see yourself as the type of player who can enjoy Bloodborne. I've done that with plenty of games that I know are not for me.

Fans barked enough and they finally got their female character for the party. Honestly, good for them. I just want to get to see more of the engine and hear more of the soundtrack.

No, it's not even that you're "the weird one", shit I think we all are.  But this post says nothing that explains anything, your last post said nothing, and the one before that was 'responded to' (apparently in a way you don't like).  I actually don't even know what to say, INDULDGE me.

You are always clueless. Stop talking to me already the same way I pay no attention to you. I say this directly to you out of pure courtesy.

If my message says nothing to you, then that's not my fault. End of this stupid story.
