The RPG discussion thread (formerly Final Fantasy XIII)
« on: January 28, 2009, 08:51:47 pm »
I haven't seen any topics on this yet so I decided since the new trailer was released today.

Here it is.

Well, what do you guys think about how it looks so far? I think it may just be the FF we've been waiting for since IX/X.

Bleh, is this really necessary? There's a General Video Game Discussion thread and the last I checked they were still boringly (that's a word, right?) talking about FF junk.

New trailer? Last I heard FFXIII was moved back to 2010.

It's so hard to keep up with that thread now. I was thinking maybe it would be better for a forum for other games or something. I have to go back 4 pages just to know what the discussion is about anymore. That way you could have all discussion for certain series in one thread. Like a Final Fantasy in a thread Megaman in another and so on. Or a thread per game.

It was never moved back to or announced for 2010 or earlier for that matter. People are just stupid. They would have been more right if they said it was going to be released in 2011 and got pushed up.

Meh, they should just keep working on more trailers for that remake of FF VII that they say will never happen.

Why would you make a trailer if you never plan to make the game in the first place?

Because it was already 1/4 produced for Crisis Core's ending. Remember originally they were going to remake FFVII for PSP then just decided to scrap it for Crisis Core.

They also did that test thing for N64 using FFVI characters...Then they gave Ninny the FU for years (they were too stubborn with their cart tech anyways). :lol:

Yeah but that was actually going to be made for 64 at first but they decided against it.

That was the worst blasphemy Square ever made. I never want to remember that ugly thing.

Final Fantasy was once planned for the "good ol" N64?  :shock: :?

I worry incredibly that FFXIII is going to have the same battle system as FFXII. Well, maybe I'll get it just to have the model data on-hand like I did with XII...

If Square Enix isn't going to give us Chrono Break, they'd damn well better cash in on a 3D FF6 remake. I think I want that more than an FF7 remake.

Not from what I remember. It was just a Square testing the system.

But, yeah, I want them to give us FFVI DS already...but for now we're getting SaGa II DS?? >_>

I'm pretty sure it was, but I'd rather have VI on PSP with voice acting. It's not one I'd consider an "Old FF."

Development would be easier, faster & would get more fans if they went the DS route. FFIV DS already proved that SNES FF remake works just fine on DS (and I'm pretty sure there was voice acting as well).

What did you not like about the FXII battle system?  I just started playing the game, about 4 hours in...not sure if I like it or not yet. 

As for a 3D FF6, I don't see how that would improve the quality of the game...don't know if I like the idea of a 2D classic going 3D.
