God, the amount of pessimism surrounding this game is sickening. 5 years ago, everyone and I mean EVERYONE would have wet their pants over this news. Nowadays it's just cool o hate on shit we like. Seriously, I can't fathom how people are having anything negative to say about this game that is in it's infantile stages of development. I shouldn't be surprised though, seeing as it's the norm for people who are content and happy to simply be happy and not say anything, but those who want to be negative can't shut the fuck up out about how it's a terror and an abomination and a travesty before it's even a fucking game. I get that we can all have opinions, but for fucks sake how about waiting til we have something more than spoken ideas and a pretty set of cinematic trailers to actually have a basis for an opinion?
They've confirmed it's not turnbased and something that looks more like FF13's battle system - which was their least popular entry in the series. Now they're basically turning it into FF 13-4 instead of actual turn based combat, which it should be.
Then people were pissed off because Square clearly knew it was going to be episodic when the game was announced but didn't say anything. They let everyone get all excited and then said "Oh by the way, you're only getting chunks of it at a time", which is a ridiculous way to announce it.
Now they're talking about changing content because things are "more sensitive" now, so it looks like we're going to get content chopped out of the game, or at least altered til it's unrecognisable.
At this point, I'd rather not have it. The entire thing has been a giant clusterfuck and I'd rather they focus on the Tokyo RPG Factory games, and polishing FFXV to make sure it doesn't suck.
What's the point of having a remake of a game if the game is unrecognisable to the original?
