Main theme for the fanbase of FFXV.

IIRC wasn't the series supposed to be a few installments long too (like 13 was)?

Yes, there is an interest to do that in the future.

Stella has more than enough potential to join the party.

Is still too soon to say that. Stella can end up like Aerith, or death in battle or who knows what exactly will happen with her having a connection to Etro, which if you don't remember is the Goddess of Death in the FNC mythos.

She and Noctis share a connection with Etro and part of the theme of 'Tragedy' I mentioned before has appeared to be related to them.

You can read more about her here to refresh your memory if you like.


Updated the OP with the change of directors.

Gotta say. Ignoring my excitement for Bloodborne and The Evil Within, the trailers for both at TGS are easily some of the most spectacular trailers I've seen this year.

Ignoring the game itself altogether (like I've been doing it for a while now) and talking for a bit about the design of the characters, this is all I can add:

I don't miss the more realistic and mature Stella. Why? Because I see the same Stella they have always shown but improved for the benefit of the game in the long run. And that also goes for the rest of the cast.

I'm still not buying the game, though.

The characters themselves, on the other hand still need some work.... Actually, I'll just say I want the blonde one dead for being noisy.

He most likely is the new Yuffie/Selphie/Rikku/Vanille.


I edited one of my previous post to make my point clearer. Just mentioning this quickly so it doesn't get lost.

I like it for one simple reason. It looks like it focuses on the characters, not on OMG FALCLIE MELODRAMA RAGNAORPHANCRADLEPRAETORIUS MANAVIN GOD REBIRTH WORLD LIGHTINGIUNGU.

Seriously, though. Think about how much humanity has been missing from FF casts in the XIII titles.

XIII was about character's emotions and all the lore that happens behind. If you didn't liked the presentation and direction they went with, well, you have a massive, passionate and loud as all hell crowd of people that also ended up in the same boat as you with the trilogy.

We don't need to repeat the cycle anymore to leave the point clear that you either enjoy XIII or you greatly dislike it.

And now I'm wondering if the driving will feel any good...

Don't worry, Polyphony Digital will take care of the driving.

EDIT: lmao

Just dropping info so you guys are aware:

Hajime Tabata: "XV is a road trip kind of movie and adventure that focuses on brotherhood." (*)

Another theme that has been hinted at with XV for the longest time has been 'Tragedy'.

A look at Kojima Productions' TGS booth: Fulton sheep replica, Phantom Cigar Corner, and loads of figures -- Metal Gear Informer

The amount of work and preparation KojiPro has done this year for TGS is pretty big. I've always been a fan of the studio and their work, so I'm obviously looking forward to their event.

I won't have any money or care about FF by the time Type-0 HD is out. Especially with all of the titles I'm interested from October to March.

Bloodborne is the only Japanese RPG I'm anticipating. Aside from that, I would like to see what's going on with the Deus Ex: Universe project and Cyberpunk 2077.

Edited for clarity.*

Bayonetta 2 - Nintendo Cosplay Trailer

Complete with old school sound effects and special attacks that make these costumes... surprisingly cool (but still tacky).

I'm not allergic or sensitive to this kind of fanservice at all. I love how there's different layers of details with each costumes that has been shown (and in comparison to others I'm not even the biggest Nintendo fan out there).

Besides, Bayo is all about killing angels and demonic entities with style without being afraid of showing some sexual playfulness in the process. If Nintendo censored Bayo, more than one fan would have rightfully lost their shit. But thankfully, W101 and Bayo 2 turn out as well as they have because Nintendo and Platinum get along pretty well.

I apparently missed that Gearbox is making a new game called Battleborn. It's another co-op shooter like Borderlands, but more eccentric and colorful, which is good in my eyes. I guess the competitive mode is more like a MOBA or something, too.  Also it's very pretty.

FYI, Battleborn is MOBA FPS. However Gearbox is not gonna call it like that because of marketing and PR reasons.

Think of how Bungie calls Destiny a "Shared-World Shooter" but you can totally call it a MMO FPS and feel good about yourself because both mean the same thing anyway.

Demo drops later, but Type-0 HD comes out the same day supposedly MGSV: TPP is released. With that and all the other stuff I'm genuinely more interested I'll stay away from FF for some time. Probably a long time I think.

Though, is like I've said in some thread here a while ago; The train for Type-0 and XV already came and went for me. I honestly feel nothing over this news even though I'm having fun seeing people in a bunch of sites exploding with excitement.

SQEX is blessed to have the fans they have.

In the same thread I was following on GAF two members there started to have a conversation about FFIX, at one point one of them comes and reply with this. Here he/she writes exactly what I've been fighting to put together in my mind to express it with other people for years, but I never could do it because of all the noise surrounding the matter at hand since the beginning and also when talking about Square's games in general.

I'm saying all this in a general sense by the way. So don't go bananas over me, I'm merely trying to share this with whoever read this.

And yeah, it feels nice that at least another soul in a forum I most likely will never be a part of feels the same. :)
15  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: September 16, 2014, 11:32:13 PM

Pre-TGS hype on GAF is always sort of chaotic to witness just for the fun of it.

On games; Next week the last piece of DLC for Dark Souls II should drop. Looking forward to it!
