@Dice: There's no "deeper meaning" intended in ME!ME!ME! when everything is presented clearly with the audiovisual storytelling they went with.

Some people not wanting to give the short credit, I take it, is not to fall in the category of being a weirdo.

Guess Alisha is never gonna answer my question...

Well, in any case, the "Tabata's Active Time Report" has been translated to English:

Square Enix Presents: Tabata's Active Time Report -- Square Enix UK, YouTube

I linked the video to when the section for XV starts in the show.

Relevant Footnotes (from NeoGAF / Source: 4Gamer):

- Last-gen and new-gen versions use different game servers.
- Last-gen and new-gen versions are not compatible for online matchmaking (PS3 to PS4 matchmaking is not supported).
- You cannot transfer save data from last-gen to new-gen.
- You cannot upgrade the Windows (DirectX9) version to the Windows (DirectX11) version.

In the press release they also specify very clearly that "last-gen" refers specifically to the PS3, 360, and DX9 versions, while "new-gen" refers to the PS4, XBO, and DX11 versions. No confusion.

This is mostly cool for new players. But, I guess I'll go for the update after seeing some impressions from players.

Same what?

Yeah, I love Shimomura's work to pieces, but FFXIV's OST was a home run... or like, ten home runs. I wish them luck.

I feel that her work in XV is gonna be as iconic as the one she did back with the original Kingdom Hearts. Which, fans aside, really is her most recognizable work along with the tracks she composed for Street Fighter II.

@Damacon: You let your points clear regarding SQEX plenty of times before. No need to repeat the same dance.

from JunkerHQ.net, Twitter:

"Not only will you not understand soldiers speaking a foreign language if you don't have an interpreter at Mother Base who speaks their language, you won't be able to interrogate them either."

---

@DarkSherlock_: "So getting a translator is the only option?"

@JunkerHQNet: "Yeah, you need to find one and recruit them."

(*)

@Pacifist_Elk: "Hopefully you do not need an interpreter to speak Russian, because Big Boss is supposed to speak excellent Russian in MGS3."

@JunkerHQNet: "You do. Kojima also said that while Snake used to be multilingual, the accident has affected that part of his brain."

People who own Ground Zeroes will be able to revisit Camp Omega in The Phantom Pain (retranslated) -- Metal Gear Informer

Earlier this year Hideo Kojima was interviewed by Geoff Keighley, live on Twitch. One of the questions was whether or not we will be able to revisit Camp Omega, the enemy base in Ground Zeroes, in MGSV: The Phantom Pain. The translation by Kojima Productions' Ken Mendoza was a bit unclear at the time, and the information was somewhat lost in translation. Kojima's answer has recently been retranslated by JunkerHQ, and it appears Kojima was actually a bit more specific in his own words.

His actual response to the question was:

"People who own GZ will be able to play a different mission(s) at Camp Omega in TPP. That's the current plan. There's something of a big feature involved. It's never been done in the games industry before. So I can't go into detail about it, but I think when you experience it for yourselves you'll be surprised. It's something that's only possible through video games."

So it seems that if you own Ground Zeroes, you will in fact be able to revisit the camp, and there will be some kind of surprise involved. Keep in mind though that this interview is from March of this year, so things may have changed since then.

Tricking yourself into enjoying FF for the love of the brand?

That's the kind of conspiracy theory argument I expect out of a Metal Gear fan, not in a FF thread. That being said, is lovely how some of the older FF fans can't fathom how there's people who enjoy modern FF for realsies. :)

I will never say we should make games exactly like we did back then but there is a lot to be learned from them of just small things they did that made their games that much more appealing.

This logic really should be applied more in clever ways with horror games if anything.

It was all Squaresofts fault all along really they killed all their competition with graphics and then internally combusted upon themselves lol.

Hate on the cost of game development and the state of the economy in the last few years instead of one company for the sake of nostalgia.

@Aeolus: Real talk; The series has been fine with all the experimentation it does.

I don't have to like every single FF. The more variety the series has to offer to different kinds of players stuff they could potentially enjoy, the better IMO.

If I would want a JRPG series that remains consistently close with its traditions I would be playing Dragon Quest, not FF.

i hope it crashers and burns myself. hoping final fantasy explorers and bracely second outsell this

how uplifting of you.

Classic Alisha. She wants to see the world burn.

It's either in limbo or secretly cancelled in favor of more Hatsune Miku games.

They fucked up the physics.  Everything is absolutely the same as before, but when you're on a colossi or trying to climb it, the Hero tends to lose balance super easily when they sway about.  You'll keep your footing but waste a lot of time stumbling about.  It's not that bad during the main game nor game breaking, but it will basically require you to hunt for lizards (eating them ups the in-game Grip Meter) for some of the harder fights but it makes the game INCREDIBLY frustrating for Time Attacks that you have to really pull your best tricks and pray for a good spot of luck.

Really? I thought you were going to talk about the framerate or any other technical aspects, but not how they rebalanced a part of the game to something you aren't particulary fond of.

For what's worth however I'll throw my 2 cents; I've played both versions of SotC. And the PS3 version is a clear improvement over the original release. More it could be done to make SotC a smoother experience but that would be messing around too much with the original game.
