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.Ok.
No amount of shitty Ezio costume DLC can change that.
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
