I *have* to get the OST then! I'll buy that game too, obviously. It would be fun if they worked like Source did, and make their games for PC, too. I know it could be possible, but when...?

1. The first six Final Fantasy games were all 1-2 years apart. FF7 took three years, and then they were 1-2 years apart again through FFXI.
2. More frequent titles does not necessarily mean shorter development cycles. It could also lead to more titles in development at once.
3. Even if it does lead to shorter development cycles, this faster turnaround means that fan-feedback will more quickly be usable. If you figure they won't be able to put anything into practice until two games later, this could mean three years instead of ten.
4. Even if it does lead to shorter development cycles, this would require them to cut back on the single biggest time-suck in game development: graphics. Since you have previously stated that good graphics are to the detriment of good gameplay in a FF game, this should be a good thing.

This isn't really the same as annual Call of Duty or Madden games. These still need to be new games with new stories, and they need to focus first and foremost on the single player. They can't get away with releasing what's essentially an expansion pack at full retail price the way Madden or CoD does, because new releases don't render the older ones unplayable as tends to happen to multiplayer games, when nobody's ever online in the old ones after a newer release.

If anything, more frequent games should mean an overall improvement in the quality of the series. If it doesn't, they will destroy their reputation faster than was possible when the games were five years apart, and they know this.

At least The Legend Of Zelda series is still awesome. Really quite sad about FF though. I've been thinking of playing VI or IX again. What do you guys think?

Gonna quote myself here:

This thread is ONLY for discussion on news/updates. Some people are interested in it, so we need somewhere to discuss it without all the arguments breaking out. If you'd like to keep that in the other thread, that would be nice.

If you wanna buttercup about FF and whatever, do it elsewhere.

wut.

This is the same battle system from XIII. Why are they advertising it like it's something new?

It just occurred to me how to fix the battle system in this game: make the auto battle feature only use a single physical attack and no spells. This way, players have to at least do SOMETHING when grinding, making it a little more similar to the boss battles which actually require choosing your attacks in order to not die.

I think its because they move more freely now but you STILL can't control them and god, why did they put back Auto Battle just with spamming that button throughout most of the time in ff13 i completed it without much hassle really and didn't even need much strategy hope they fixed that bit out
Also the gui looks like its got some redesign but still mostly the same

There's a rumor going around, that Sazh will be playable through DLC.

Doesn't look like Hope's playable :/

But, if they do release Sazh as a DLC bonus, hopefully the others will come too :)

I checked out some of the music for this game, so, so terrible. What were they thinking?
It's becoming embarrassing to say I'm a fan of the series.

Graphics. Time spent on graphics. Appearance. Money.

That says it all.

All of the changes are much needed improvements over FFXIII. Can't wait for February, day 1 buy for me.

Lets improve something worthless just to make it slightly less worthless
that's like increasing the number -9999 by 10
you're still left with -9989

You know times are bad when they even consider to make a sequel to a game like FFXIII... and now I hear they are gonna make FFXIII-3?

That cow sure has a lot of cash.

Lets try to improve a stupid worthless strawberries game. It's still a worthless strawberries game. Yet the graphics are good (of course, that's the only thing they work on), the story is a stupid copy/paste of the one of FF7 (FF7 was awesome, so they tried to copy the story... they failed). Gameplay still good but with a lot of flaws. Well, one of the only good point of FFXIII is interactive battle, interactive as in you move during battle... oh wait, that's not new.

I'm on the verge of selling my PS3 to buy a PS2. I want to play FFX, FFX-2, FFXII, FFVII DoC... Yet maybe some aren't really that good, they're still better than some games on the PS3...

Well, I got LBP2 for Xmas... will probably sell it to buy a PS2...

Worthless ? You guys make it sound as if FFXIII is the worst video-game in existence. Even worst than Ultraman. That seriously cracks me up. But don't get me wrong : I'm the first to speak ill of FFXIII - but that doesn't mean it isn't a beautiful, polished, bug-free, playable, and enjoyable game. For the most part, it does well what it aims to do - it's just not what FF fans wanted. S-E listened to the complaints, so FFXIII-2 keeps the interesting aspects of XIII and enhances the rest. I approve of this behavior.

But no, you're right, scratch that : FFXIII has a few annoying flaws, so it's obviously the worst game ever. My bad for trying to talk some sense in this thread.

You hear that, Gjoerulv ? We weren't having fun with the battle system in XIII. Our minds and bodies can betray us, I tell you.
