The FF hate has always baffled me a bit. I've yet to play a main FF title I didn't like (to varying degrees).  I even liked XIII enough to run through it 3 times.  Does this make me a fanboy?
No, just clinically depressed and in need of counseling...

I kid.

But I mean, don't get me wrong, I like the FF series. I've played every title at launch since VII up til XIII, and have (with the exception of XII) have beaten them all. However, I'm a realist in regards to the fact that the quality of the games have diminished greatly, I know that FF has become a cult series again, being for fans only. I just don't get why some people can't accept that some people find the games very poorly done as of late...

I prefer comically negative to personal attacks.
Just go look at the New Game Journal.
At which point will the game be old enough that you'll finally stop reacting to anything about it?

The only thing that needs to change is your inability to deal with people not liking the shiny turds of Square Enix. Seriously, no one can even remotely comment negatively about a fucking spelling error without you freaking out and calling us a bunch of fucking hateful neogaf asshole reject shits. Dude, not everyone is eating their crap with a smile, get over it.

There's a misunderstanding here going on. But it's fine. I'll go away since I can't really make my point clear enough without making someone mad for whatever reason.

Can someone ban my account please? :)
Oh ffs quit beinc a whiny dingus and being a martyr, defend your opinion like your a man and not a wimpering 2 year old crying for mommy.

Edit: I really shouldn't type in anger on my cracked cellphone, nothing comes out right...

If square enix rolled over and declared bankruptcy tomorrow and no FF game were ever made again, consoles would not change at all. The FF series hasn't been a system seller in almost 15 years. Your innane fanboy love of the series aside, my comment is true. It means almost nothing to consoles these days, sorry to say.

...? You're being dense for no reason.

And I don't know what you are going on about with the fanboy comment. I guess unless one is comically negative, you are not allowed to talk about anything related to SQEX, because... fuck me? Ha. C'mon now, this kind of attitude has to change at one point.

I get that people is angry at SQEX but you don't have to be stupid about it. I mean, I thought this forum was better than that at least.

this recent editorial by Jason Schreier is still pretty thought provoking.

Jason Schreier is full of crap man. This "article" reads like its made for the more jaded part of the FF community on NeoGAF if anything.

the fact that final fantasy means dick squat to consoles these days....

Eh? The article mainly mentioned FF establishing trends for the JRPG genre and everyone else following them. Which is something that's half-true.

And XV on consoles is a pretty big deal. It has always been really. You feeling shitty (or not) towards FF is a different topic.

So the rest of the gaming world has still pushed ps4 and xbox one into legendary territory with record breaking initial sales figures, that says amazing things about the power of consoles.

I don't know about simultaneous, but they have been making an effort to reduce the localization time.  I wouldn't expect it to be a whole year.

This was along the lines of what I remembered reading. As you can see the wording is funky, so it could be just announced as being made for east and west, rather than being made in the east and telling us we're getting it after it's been out for ages already.

Anything written at kotaku right now, I give about as much credit to as france for developing french fries...none at all. Besides the fact that final fantasy means dick squat to consoles these days....yeah, the article isn't even worth my time to glance at. Consoles will always have a place in home entertainment as long as people don't wish to deal with a computer 24/7. When you work at a computer all day, converse via skype or IM services through a computer, and basically do pretty much all other activity through a computer (bill paying, shopping, reading, etc) people desire some freedom from it, some dis-association, some seperation basically. A console video game is an easy answer to that. So yeah, consoles will be around for at least a few more generations minimum, though they may skew the line between console and pc-lite soon.


I tend to agree but isn't the trend now shifting towards handhelds?  Sometimes I think I'm too immersed in things to have a completely objective opinion on this kind of stuff.
Only in japan is handheld and mobile really big. The market for console gaming is (pretty obviously based on 23 million next gen consoles sold worldwide , 15 million being the ps4 and xbox one) still fairly huge. Only reason mobile gaming is as big as it is is due to the cellphone industry feeding people heaping shovelfulls of shit to get you to buy a newer better prettier more powerful cell phone. I really don't think the market is as lucrative as consoles simply due to microtransactions on mobile games being so easily manipulated and, therefore, screwing developers out of cash. Let's face it, without a publisher backing you and investors to ease your cost, game development isn't quite a massive moneymaker.

Release date for Zesty has apparently leaked: January 22nd.

Yaaay.  For importers.
Sucks being a English-speaking JRPG fan otherwise and knowing you're waiting about a year to get it. :P


EDIT:
http://taleslations.tumblr.com/post/96584560432/character-biography-the-kresnik-clan-x2-spoilers
Here's a translated thing on the Kresnik family history (from ToX2 Perfect Guide.... sucks we never know some of the things written in these).  But yeah, talks about some of the details behind Viktor, Bisley, the Brothers and other misc.

Err.....isn't zestiria gonna be "the first internationally simultaneous released tales game ever" or something along those lines?

Discounts change week to week, new free games every month with at least one being something fairly popular at one point (Dragon's Crown last month, pretty decent if you ask me), access to early demos and betas, it's cross platform so any system you have will be psn+ ready and have the discount and freebies available on that platform...all in all it's pretty decent for a 50 buck investment. Already got my 50 bucks back in dead space 3, strider, Trine 2, and dragon's crown vita. Plus, if you dig a bit, someone is always selling the psn+ card for a discount itself. 40 bucks is definitely not bad for the investment.

I'm fairly certain that 3 or 4 thousand people who are in an uproar about this whole situation don't hold a candle to the millions of worldwide gamers who give no fuck. Even I'm really just here for the reading to pass time at work or on a bus. It's a whole lot of nonsense that as mesh said will be almost entirely forgotten in a month...until Anita claims someone else threatened her with a big black dildo or something.


It reminds me of the whole bully awareness situation going on right now in america. Weren't we told as kids to just ignore bullies? Why is it a thing now to bring attention to them and give them the glory they're looking for? Same deal with anita and zoe (different types of bullies) and the whole game journalism corruption shit. Be like the rest of the other gamers, let your wallet speak for you, it has far more impact than forum posts and tweets, which just fuel the asshats of the world to keep making a mockery of us as a culture.

ALso, this happened. Even veteran game devs are allowed to act in such an infantile way. If I acted like this at my job I'd be fired ten times over.
I like the twitter account you were using, lol.

Yeah, us, because no one will wanna make anything that doesn't cater to a mass of juvenile assholes who just wanna shoot shit and curse about how they're gonna fuck your mothers/girlfriends/sisters/etc.

Yeah. The End Is Nigh and humanity will crumble on its own weight, yadda yadda.
Actually, most of us will simply start new hobbies...

Guess my dad was right, video games are for kids. That's probably why everyone in the industry has to act like a fucking 4 year old to get their way.

Nope. They act like that because they can.

Only a matter of time before insults reach the levels of "I know you are but what am I?" and the like.

I imagine if this keep going and growing in notoriety is gonna end up with at least someone getting hurt for real.
