the dungeon designs weren't very good.

...what?

I feel like you're telling me that up is down.  FFVI had the best dungeons in the entire series, bar none.  By a mile.

Maybe he's referring to that bonus dungeon in the GBA version? Its as awful as every other GBA era bonus dungeon. Compared to that, there are only like two or three dungeons in FFVI that are comparatively bad (Magitek Reseach Facililty, the Burning House and Gogo's Lair), and none of those suck nearly as hard as that bonus dungeon does.

I don't know how to feel about event fights. On one hand I agree with people who complain about cutscenes where really cool shit goes down that you can't be any part of and hating event fights would be a bit hypocritical. On the other hand, they tend to be a very lightly scripted bore.

I actually really respect and take special notice when games do this.  I hate the whole "EVIL GOD FROM THE DARK MATTER" BS (as much as I love FF9, it should have stopped with Kuja).

Yu Yevon was the real bad guy!

geh...

I hate event fights even more. :/

It may have taken me the better half of a year, but I finally beat Witch and the Hundred Knight! With a Platinum Trophy nonetheless!

Okay, so for the past few months I've only played maybe once or twice a month, and the last twenty hours of gameplay was me just pumping up my levels to prepare for the final boss, but it still took a damn long time to beat the game. And yet my enjoyment of it has not been deterred. The game has plenty of flaws and I don't blame most people for disliking it overall, but I just really had fun with it.

And for reasons I can't even try to explain, Metallia is still one of my favorite characters in a video game. Though the fight with her (to get the trophy) kind of made me wish the game gave you a chance to play as her at least a few times.

So the Nintendo Direct has come and gone with its 50 54? 55? 50-ish things about Smash Bros For. and HOLY FUCK is that a goddamn mess of stuffs.

So roughly speaking you have
- ANNOUNCEMENTS! being made by ANNOUNCER GUY!! ANNOUNCING!!! ANNOUNCEMENTS!!!!, which will be posted once this post has been completed. ANNOUNCERIFFIC!!!!!
- Up to 8-player matches (though you are limited on which stages you can choose for the obvious reason of being too fucking small).
- Kirby Super Star's Great Cave Offensive is now a stage.
- DK's Jungle Hijinx have multiple planes to fight on (i.e. there are platforms in the background that you can launch yourself between using barrels).
- There's a Wrecking Crew stage and a Miiverse stage.
- Palutena's Temple has taken up the "series NPCs comment on current fighters when series representative does a down taunt" mantle from Solid Snake's Brawl Stage.
- Gaur Plain in the Wii U version has more platforms around the bottom edges and Metal Face shows up during the night as a stage hazard.
- Ridley is about as close to a playable character as possible since he's an NPC like the Flying Men in Ness's 3DS stage Magicant that can be recruited to aid a player (only you have to beat him up a bit first). He can also be turned into Meta Ridley or defeated for a KO point (even by the player that recruits him).
- Coin and Stamina Battles are back.
- So is having to collect all those damn Music CDs again (at least stages have multiple tracks per stage again). -_-;
- Challenges are roughly the same as before but there are a couple more than before.
- Classic Mode has you fighting through a stack of characters repeatedly under certain conditions. It's probably very close to what's already in the 3DS version but NPC rivals and events can happen and you can play with a second player to speed up getting Trophies.
- All Star is in reverse order.
- Event Mode is back baby. Hellyeah!
- Smash Run is replaced by Smash Tour, which basically involves playing a board game with your MiiFighters and collecting powerups, items, trophies, loot, and fighters to use in battle.
- Stadium Events finally have multiplayer support. It should make stuff like Cruel Smash easier.
- Special Orders consist of Master Orders and Crazy Orders. Master Orders give you a single chance to clear a challenge for a reward, while Crazy Orders offer increasing rewards for completing a series of challenges ala All Star, but to cash in you have to battle Crazy Hand at the end.
- Master Core has a fifth form called Master Fortress (the others are called Master Shadow, Master Edges, Master Beast and Master Giant).
- Custom Characters can be transfered to the Wii U.
- You can do a lot more with Trophies.
- Masterpieces are back. Earthbound included this time.
- Amiibos can be fed extra equipment for extra stats. Blah blah.
- Tournies are back, local and online. (Or will be once its finished.)
- You can edit photos with the Wii U gamepad. Expect lots of dongs and tits.
- There's a limited chat feature but only pre and post battle.
- Stage Builder is back. Expect lots of stages shaped like dongs and tits.
- Online sharing, blah blah blah.
- Bowser Jr. announced. Also announcement videos for the new characters can be viewed in game. Also also Koopa Kids unofficially announced. Also also first DLC character Mewtwo announced (which you can get for free if you get both games; under construction).

FFVI was basically glitchy as all hell and the dungeon designs weren't very good. Also the ratio of Good Characters to Total Characters was low and at least one would literally destroy your save if you used her. Also you tend to happen upon really simple things you can keep spamming that basically win every battle.

I love the style and atmosphere and storytelling, I just find it miserable to actually /play/ it.

And, to me at least, that idea is 1000 times more terrifying than Sephiroth wanting to destroy the planet because his mommy doesn't love him/really exist.

Prior to Square's endless retconning, the thing with Sephiroth is that he's a byproduct of Shinra's sketchy energy business. It's not so much that Sephiroth wants to destroy the world so much as it is the planet wants to kill humanity/commit suicide and Sephiroth's just the thing through which this is being did.

I mean I'm pretty sure in the original FFVII Sephiroth's this insane radioactive zombie and then people got really turned on by this for some reason so Square was like FUCK IT WE NEED MORE ATTRACTIVE RADIOACTIVE ZOMBIES.

Time stamp to exact quote

....I would have to say Sephiroth is my favorite FF villain just for the reason that he is the villain through the entire story. Think thats one of my biggest pet peeves with a lot of games not just rpgs is that last bosses just appear out of no where and you know nothing really about them so it doesn't feel anywhere near as epic to kill them as it did say Sephiroth after chasing him across the entire world.

I actually really respect and take special notice when games do this.  I hate the whole "EVIL GOD FROM THE DARK MATTER" BS (as much as I love FF9, it should have stopped with Kuja).
