...holy shit, CGI quality just gets better and better and I love it (rather, I'm projecting back between Advent Children and what we see here).  Naturally it would, but I guess I'm used to the Disney/Pixar CG and less CGI'd humans.

Is all about a certain balance between art direction, what remains with a sense of realism and what's stylized with production like these.

I'm amused by the fact that Kingsglave actually has a token female member (and that she's a Mystical Ninja to boot, because of course she is).

Always with the smartassery...

Friend of mine is trying to argue that uncharted 4 has better graphics than XV. I show him these screens..."Cinematics don't count."

lol, some people do love to get defensive with made up technicalities over graphics instead of trying to actually appreciate some of the work and effort that's out there.

Lost Odyssey was wasted on the 360. The core audience of the Xbox has never really had any real interest in RPGs from Japan, the game at times making impressions like the ones FFVII and X did on that platform was like throwing the funniest joke to the most clueless guy in the room.

they should outsource mistwalker to make an FF game >_>

Mistwalker, like Platinum Games as well, exists in part from having moved on from SQEX and Capcom respectively. Everything veteran from either side is genuinely is better off doing their own thing than getting busy on a big project that has an alienated fanbase behind it.

I couldn't read all of that, but it was pretty fascinating.

Please do. Is a fun read of the type of interview we don't see normally translated.

FF fans really really miss out by not playing FF14, it's a shame casue the game is a damn swansong nostologia trip to FF games of yesteryear and it's stand alone content and story puts every FF since 9 or 10 to shame.

I would say IX. Is the last true FF in its most purest form; A solid (but somewhat slowed-paced) RPG that is unapologetically charming from the beginning to the very end. A tribute, as well as a swansong, to what FF was at its core with its original team.

XIV falls much in the same space to what IX is. Which is sort weird from a certain angle because is a genuine miracle that we got an FF that feels that would be something SquareSoft would do with the kindest of their heart. At the same time, is a bit of a double edge-sword that it is stuck being an MMO. Is as much of an strength as it can be seen as a weakness.

And I've seen a lot of discussion out there of what is it about the modern takes that FF has had (VII~X and XIII) that causes this division within the fans, casual players and the devs. Because usually the ones that goes after the iconic look and feel of FF, are comfy with them in the long run.

Japan is a dying console market. You look at some of the sales numbers of console games that are released ever since the PS3 was released and its pretty sad. Unless FF15 or Persona 5 does it, no home console game released in 2016 is going to reach 1M in sales.


Yeah. Around 2005 or '06 if I recall things rapidly got messy for the market as well as game development in Japan. They had made their advancements since then despite the West having a clear advantage. It hasn't been easy, but hey, there has been plenty of good stuff along the way.

This bubble with mobile gaming though is really chaotic because of how fickle and shallow most of it seems to work. And Asia is all over it as I understand.

Or not care since it's great now.

I put it in the place of being 'a nice game'. Is certainly not for me, but it does what is suppose to do while also going after the heart of your typical disillusioned FF fan in the process and it has succeeded in winning some of them over. That alone is an achievement.

it's ok i was thinking the same thing too. to many people avoid the best FF game probally in a decade just because it's mmo.

Is easy to forget, or ignore, that they had to reboot XIV to leave it in a nicer place with ARR.

Mobius Final Fantasy Final Fantasy XII Collaboration Event -- Square Enix, YouTube

XII has it 10th anniversary this year ya'll.

With X/X-2 dropping on Steam and the previous event in Mobius with VII happening pretty much to give attention to the remake, this event is hopefully a sign for the remastered edition of XII becoming a reality.
