@Dincrest: I'm not against either Final Fantasy XV or Star Ocean 5 character designs personally. Like I said before, is the transition of 2D to 3D and the overall look of the game itself with SO5 that I have sort of an issue with, but is not the biggest deal on my end. Besides, complaining about Star Ocean's anime aesthetic is, if anything, ironic at this point to be honest.

Which is why at the very least, sir, you were dead on with your comment :)

Of course he was. Of course. lol.

Not so much focus groups as much as simple marketing tactics.

Wait. Is there any real difference between focus groups and marketing tactics anyway? Legit question.

Which is why you read more than one sentence of a post. Sure, the better term would've been "Character customization" or even "customizable outfits", but the rest of his post made that fairly clear that he was going for that (which I can say for certain now that I'm awake and lucid).

Alright then.


I do agree with various points that you make, but regardless my mentality on this is more relate to design rather than the idiosyncrasies of the genre. Hope I'm being clear by saying that but you know what they say about arguments and counterarguments.

At the very least, your dead on.

And you are the one that called me a dick once. Sweet irony. :p

Seriously, all I want in a character creator is my own choice in clothing.

Honestly, I never heard of anybody talking about a "character creator for clothing" and I don't think that's the best way of saying what you want. But yeah I get it. You want to have control of the look of your character.

And either way what I said before can still be applicable since giving the freedom to the player for a character to look or be a certain way could go against the game itself. To a certain extent it doesn't matter how much fun the player is having, devs want the game to be as consistent as possible and every aspect of it, especially for an RPG, has to take that into consideration to make it work.

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!

@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.
