Y'know what this game is going to be? Terrible. Just like FFXIII was. Kitase, Nomura, and just about everyone making decisions on the series at this point need to be fired. In a kiln.

No amount of shitty Ezio costume DLC can change that.

Crossing Assassins creed and Final Fantasy in ANY respect is somehow extremely disheartening to me.... I feel as though it is foreshadowing for all this game will contain that will make me feel less and less that it is a Final Fantasy in any respect.... I can't really explain it.... I'm not bashing Assassins Creed, its just that in the universe of Final Fantasy there are things that should not be....

Will the Ezio costume be the only thing in the game that doesn't look ridiculous?

Probably the biggest reason to buy it! Except I'd keep thinking of Assassin's Creed, so that's probably not a good idea afterall.

As little confidence as I have in Squeenix these days; I doubt that even they could fuck this up as badly as they fucked up XIII-1 since I doubt that they need two tech demos of their new dev engine.

Plus Ezio screams DLC and that's what Squeenix is going to load this game down with to milk the most profit off of initial buyers.

You've misunderstood me. I just seek your death only because you're in the way of my goal of world conquest. I can't help it that I have evil ambitions and am named Dark Lord. Honest.

I'm not exactly wildly excited for the game or anything really, but I AM cautiously optimistic, leaning more toward optimistic there. But then I actually enjoyed FFXIII a good amount and my biggest issue, how hollow it felt, seems like it'll be well addressed, and I can barely give a fuck about a mainline FF story anymore so this being dumb is irrelevant. Just as long as it's BEARABLE or even somewhat entertaining to watch I'll be fine, and FFXIII succeeded well enough there. Certainly it wasn't SO4 again.

They crossed Assassin's Creed with MGS4.

Anyway, I'm cautiously optimistic, like Eusis, but it'll take a lot for me to buy this at full price.

It's taking a soundtrack for me. Except that isn't full price, it's $20 more.

(I'll also drop it VERY FAST if import impressions aren't as favorable as I'd like.)

I thought it was Peace Walker, where Snake did a leap of faith.

MGS4 had an Altair costume for Snake, I think.

I paid $20, then sold the costume pack I got for $15 on eBay. So overall, $5. :P

They opened with THIS: Final Fantasy XIII was not, despite the claims of many, a terrible game. In fact, it was pretty decent.

XIII was not a "decent" game, and the minute we stop accepting tripe like this is the same minute JRPGs can finally be good again (or the market caves, either would be preferable). It was a BAD game, and we shouldn't tolerate it just because of our affection for a brand. It had stupid dialogue, stupid characters, and stupid art direction. FFX was a DECENT game, but it was not GOOD, no matter how much the marketing has convinced the playerbase otherwise.


The fact is that our tastes can be brainwashed with enough marketing and companies know that. It's why we eat McDonalds food, despite it being abject garbage. It's why we don't demand standards in our everyday lives. FFXIII will be terrible because of the people behind it and the reasoning behind it. Being slightly better than FFXIII will not make it a good game. It's like accepting that $1.23 per litre of gas is somehow okay because $1.30 is the standard. That doesn't make it a good price.

Why are you so convinced that anyone who likes a certain kind of game is 'brainwashed'? Maybe they just like the game.

Because "liking" something is an unqualified statement even for the person who likes something. It's like having an uninformed, uneducated opinion: you can have it, but you're still [probably] wrong.
