Final Fantasy games are king for showing cg predominately

I just noticed that Lightning's sword is actually quite small.

Well, she's a woman, so she doesn't experience sword envy.

I always thought it was bigger because it was a gunblade.

CG is one the things that I want see more from squareenix because they are very best at it. It is always nice have a wow effect when see those incredibly made cg movies :)

Hmm maybe, but at this rate we will end up with a CGI blu-ray movie with a couple hours of gameplay ..

Looks more like 'The Fifth Element' to me and less like a Final Fantasy game. I think a true next gen sequel to Final Fantasy VII would have been the best direction to go. At its time, the game did everything right.

all cgi pretty much.

just look at screenshots of other FF games compared to the final product, SQ love there cgi screenshots.

Definently beautiful shots

i like the contract between vs and ff13, ff13 is very colourful and fantasy like, yet vs is very dark and almost set in modern world.. cars, roads, buildings etc


I don't mind CG, i mean, it was for the CG work i used to play games..i remember playing RE2 on my playstation, putting hours in my ff games hoping to see the next beautiful CG cutscene. Loved it!

I know alot of artwork, sketches and pre production work happens, why don't they release a massive artbook? i would love to collect them. I've got 2 by yoji shinkawa, love to have some from ff creators

I'm actually loving the art direction. I just hope the guys don't ALL look like girls.
Commented on 2008-01-20 20:42:40

Just so we are clear, there weren't any male characters in these pics right? Are there any male characters at all in this game?

you dont see the dude in the first scan pointing the gun? And the versus guy in the black?

i dont understand why some people cant tell the difference, its clear to me. just cuz the guys have long spiky hair doesnt make them look like girls. Quite frankly if the Versus XIII guy was a chick id be deeply desturbed. Oh well, guess not everyone is interested in details.

Xion, they need to be MANLY and RUGGED. With beards and muscles. And spit out bad one liners.

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @MikeManiac61: Ocarina of Time innovated on a lot of things when it came out, from both technical and gameplay departments. Today, if you exclude Nostalgia, it's great, but not the best Zelda game. (4 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Sdarts:thought the controls looked interesting. having 1:1 (or close to) sword control instead of something like the wii version of twilight princess where swinging the wiimote just triggered actions (4 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Melmoth: Haven't played Skyward Sword to completion yet, but it's definitely a divisive game, people either love it or hate it. (6 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Sdarts: not often nowadays, sadly. For the other zelda games, i've got a MotionPlus controller, so i can play Skyward Sword. (10 minutes ago)

  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Melmoth: That's really nice, man. In a way, it's almost like you two played games together. I hope the family life hasn't stopped that, even if it's once or twice a year. (15 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Majora's Mask -----> OOT. Yep, I said it. (21 minutes ago)
