[...]is also a bummer that we were robbed of "the next Final Fantasy."

I get that you are anxious, but we weren't robbed of anything. Japanese companies have gone through a long and awkward period to get their projects done with of all changes that have gone down with the industry and the market since around the mid-2000s.

[...]the impossible to please FF fanbase that spent the last decade playing one disappointment after the other.

The most meaningful failures the series has had in that span of time have been XIV 1.0 and All the Bravest. The rest has had varying degrees of success with a bunch of white noise and feedback behind it.

It depends on the release date though. FFXV is having a simultaneous worldwide release, but we don't know if P5 is so it'll more than likely be a similar date in Japan and a bit more of a gap here.

Tell that to the fans that are picking sides and justify it with animosity towards either series.

Persona 5 is not a priority on my end with FFXV, Dark Souls III and DX: Mankind Divided already on my plate.

an example of what i wanted from this game is the resident evil remake.

REmake was developed by one of best teams Capcom had back in the day. Wanting something of that caliber and style out of SQEX, with the ways they handle their projects, is straight up delusional.

@Agent D.: Well, technically for as much as the novels in the XIII series are called to be "supplemental material" they are very much an integral part of the overall story. Sure each game has, in a manner of speaking, its own story, but in the long run they do come together into one single narrative by the end of it (with the novels, details in the datalogs, retcons and everything that happens in between being canonical). And yes we are all aware that are fans who don't like that or don't care about it at all. But this is one of those "it is what is it" cases. *shrug*

With the Compilation of FFVII on the other hand, that has always worked as a way to take liberties with the universe that was established in the original game's narrative. However, the remake is (for better or worse) the perfect moment for the team working on this to bring all of what they did in that compilation into the main story of VII. And with Kitase, Nojima and Nomura being involved that could potentially happen in order to bring a breath of fresh air into the story hardcore fans know by heart.

So why is everyone so mad?

In essence many fans of VII wanted out of the remake what Zelda fans got with Ocarina of Time 3D, but in high-definition and in a single release (or installment like Kitase calls it). Instead what's happening with this remake has parallels to what went down with StarCraft II by making the campaigns of each race its own release that would later form a trilogy unlike how the original StarCraft and, its expansion, Brood War offered the campaigns of all of the races in one package.

[DEVELOPMENT INFO] ABOUT FINAL FANTASY XV PRE-BETA -- Final Fantasy XV's Official Forums

---

from Nova Crystallis:



Final fantasy XV's Cross-Link system pictured above and featured prominently in Episode Duscae 2.0 with a yellow circle has been overhauled, in a new message listed and unofficially translated over on the game's official forums in response to Japanese fan questions.

According to Game Design Section Manager Ken'ichi Shida, "The cross-link tempo has been improved from the demo, and execution is now more nimble. Ways of triggering the Cross-Link are different from the demo and have improved. The cross-link system was overhauled for the purposes of the finalized version's release.

In addition, "Slash Link" coordination, as well as a hitherto unannounced system, exists, and these are triggered under different conditions from Cross-Link. These link systems are the bread and butter of XV's friend co-op party battles, so the development team will be polishing these systems up until the moment that the finalized version of the game is released."

Final Fantasy XV is set to release in 2016 with a final release date scheduled to be revealed at an event in March.

What bugs me is that Square Enix could absolutely be more straightforward than they're being. They are offering up answers to questions, and I appreciate that, but c'mon! Just spell it out for us!

They already did that senpai:

The reunion at hand may bring joy.
It may bring fear.
But let us embrace WHATEVER it brings.

@Dice: Sweeping under the rug my question like that just makes me wonder why I even bother in the first place.

Is interesting seeing how the original chibi designs of the NPCs have transitioned into the realistic stylized designs of the remake. The clothing looking as good as it does is what gets me the most.


Then, experimenting with variables presented by established events or scenarios that take place inside and outside of battle are not present in RPGs of any kind and are not a form of linearity present in the genre at all?

I won't lie the corridor segment gave me bad deja vu for FF13's endless onslaught, so I hope that was just one instance.

You are sort of losing grip of the genre you are talking about by saying something like this.
