"Her fixed gaze demonstrates strength and conviction".

"A sly smile crosses Lumina's face. What could she be up to?"

"Is Lumina just a playful little girl who wants Lightning's attention?"

lol is this written for kids? That's some Dora the Explorer shit.

I'm amazed Square isn't bankrupt.

Well if Sony's profits continue on their current trade then they may be axed.

Hard to believe how FF games are received these days given how the franchise was once unstoppable. I guess a case of the majority audience growing out of this type thing, but certainly the most loyal fans would argue it's more than that

the new final fantasy games just suck ! I rather play some more secret of mana or chrono trigger or some other great rpgs Square made back in the day

I use to look forward to every single release of these games. Now the series is practically dead to me. It has been so terrible for so long now.

How much longer can't Wada keep the 360 announcement of Versus XIII or the fact it doesn't exist?

They released some pretty decent games last year...Deus ex was awesome (or was that 2011?), and tomb raiders bound to make them abit of money. But it's surely only a matter of time before they become fulltime publishers of western games and start licencing out their engine instead

Took me a while to realize that in pic 16, those are probably supposed to be some sort of lace frill thing, not just a horrible jagged mess of giant pixels :P

At any rate, this looks terrible. Character design is just awful, the environments are still shamefully flat and boxy and i just can't imagine it will be worth playing for the story :P

on her neck?, it's not some low res thing though if that's what you mean, just some square step design

I always loved FF art and design. And thats where I ended with this game. So I always like to watch new videos and see new screenshots with new designs. Its amazing. :-) I dont give a damn about the gameplay.

Lightning's sunglasses depict pretty good how i feel about the whole FF franchise these days: It suffers from overstylization and awful (art-) design. When it all used to be simpler and less polygonal i was like: "Damn, give them the hardware already to put their vision into reality." Today i'm like: "Take it back, take it back !" Are the Japanese still camping for this shit like 3 days ahead of release or does that only belong to the 90's and early 2000.

I think square in particular have just gone bananas with retarded character designs though. FFX had some pretty damn terrible stuff, and XIII just has some really bad ones. If they juiced up the graphics of something lik FFVII the character designs would still look OK because they are not so absurdly over-done. There is beauty in simplicity, you don't always need these ridiculous peacock outfits that are so bizarrely intricate that you could never ever conceive of someone getting up in the morning and strapping themselves in to them :P

It's not as bananas as one would imagine it to be if you've ever been to Shibuya or Harajuku. J-Fashion is about the worst 'artstyle' that could possibly cross my mind when talking FF character design. Lost Odyssey had that too btw, but overall the game managed to preserve more of the once great FF appeal than Square JRPGs do these days.

God,this looks really bad !
What happened to the golden days of Final Fantasy ?
Sad,this was always an event in the past !
Commented on 2013-01-18 13:36:18
The golden days of FF? I don't know, how hard core are you? Are you of the nwb crowd who thinks 7 is the greatest, or do you prefer 6? Or are you really ye olde badass and prefer 4? :P
Commented on 2013-01-18 15:54:05
the glasses look absolutely ridiculous, lol


It's also fuinny to see how they used Serahs model, changed it a bit and make a new character out of it. Even the hairstyle is almost the same.

Rem when a final fantasy game came out, it used to be a occasion like Halo (before there was a halo every year) and half life
it was something that came every now and again and was a joy to behold :D

WTF IS THIS SHIT!
Commented on 2013-01-19 16:10:12
It's gonna take alot more than just seeing Lighting in her panties, and sliding down a stripper pole, to make me invest in this game.

I'm more amazed at how much sand is in the desert and how it gets everywhere in some people...

Haha...I guess I mean FF6 ! Was my Favorite of them all !
& was ok,but I remember cleary how I disliked the Jump to ugly polygons back in the day !

Enjoyed 9 for some reason and 10 was Cool as well !
Tried 12 but the Battle System really annoyed me a lot !

So yeah,SNES FF6 was awesome,DQ5 on SNES was pure Genius as well !
What about you ?

Don't really like the old ones much at all. My two favorite FF games are 12 and tactics :P

If we are just talking jRPGs in general i'd have to go with Phantasy Star IV and Suikoden 1 and 2.

most people disagree with me entirely but i have not played all FF games but a decent amount of there main games, and 10 is by far the best for me.. aside from the whistle scene... christ :(

then i would say 9 then 6 then 7.

About the game


What's up?
  • Loakum
    Loakum @itaintrite - When The Last of Us Remastered first started accepting pre orders, the cost was $59.99 ($63.59 with tax). I got $10 back, plus the additional $28 for trading in the PS3 version of TLOU. (1 Hour ago)
  • itaintrite
    itaintrite That's a great deal if you already have the PS3 version lol. Why did it cost you $63.59 though? They would've had to give you back the difference either way. (1 Hour ago)
  • Loakum
    Loakum @itanite - I had pre ordered in full when it cost $63.59, so when I used the trade in deal, I got $38 change back. I used that towards Alien Isolation pre order. (2 Hours ago)
  • Loakum
    Loakum @itainite - that's a pretty good deal, but Gamestop's current trade-in deal (The Last of Us PS3), you could get the TLOU Remastered for only $27 (tax included). (2 Hours ago)
  • itaintrite
    itaintrite I preordered at BestBuy to use my $15 promo code :) TLoU same day pick up for $35, whoot. (2 Hours ago)
  • Loakum
    Loakum @Doom_Bringer - Oh. I had to do the same thing, but I did it 4 days ago. Sorry they're now all sold out. :( (2 Hours ago)
  • Doom_Bringer
    Doom_Bringer @Loakum: I wanted to take advantage of the $24 trade in deal. I had it pre ordered but cancelled it at the last minute (2 Hours ago)
