Just got round to the scorpion fight from E3. Mate this is charmless. Just constant inane chatter, cuts away from the action to show the fight shifting to the next phase, just looks dogshit. They've fucked it.

Agreed.  I know that a lot of people here don't care for Jim Sterling but I thought that his recent video on the E3 demo and that scorpion fight was spot on; it's so visually busy, as to be an incomprehensible mess.

Did anyone manage to complete FF XV? It was hard fucking going and I barely got through a couple of hours of the main story.

I think that's the thing that puts me off, the battle system. I loved the fast paced turn based off the original, it being my first JRPG it has a special place. The more actiony moves they've been making since FF12 onwards haven't particularly gelled with me, and this looks like a similar move.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not fussed if this game turns out not to be for me and finds an audience. But when you play the nostalgia card, it does attract the thoughts of people who liked the original of all parts of the spectrum.

Yep. I'm not that into the reactions-based frantic hack 'n slash style of battles when it comes to a game like FFVII. It's much more about the story and atmosphere, and so is better suited to a battle system that amplifies that side of the game, rather than the other way round.

I guess they've decided that the 'modern gamer' won't have the time for that in light of all the massive Skyrim-style open world adventures. But it's a cop-out. At least come up with a hybrid system not so insistently immediate and busy.

You know what's really wrong with this? You'd never be able to stand still in a scene and watch the game world tinkle. Everything would be a frantic fungleberry in a remake, standing still will involve all kinds of swaying and posing. The original was very reflective, and could be zen-like.

Tifa's oversized tits and the lolgay scenes in the Honeybee NERFED as Square Enix bows to pressure from Societal Justification Worriers on Twitter, in a massive shock to all!

They just kind of unilaterally decided that "gamers don't like turn based battles anymore" for no reason whatsoever. It's something someone thought sounded right on one morning and everyone just agreed with them. The fact games like Pokemon still sell like gangbusters to people of all ages doesn't matter. No. Players don't have the patience for turn based battles. Can't do turn based anymore. No siree.

That's not quite true. Squenix has kept turned-based battles for the Dragon Quest franchise and a few other games. The FF franchise is too far down the garden path to return to strict turn-based combat even for a remake.

I just hope that the ethics department hasn't demanded that they scrap his famous catchphrase "I need TP for my bunghole!".

They've actually decided this AGAINST the evidence to the contrary. It's a case of "we tell you what you like,  eat our liquid shit".

Lot of high minded bollocks here about Tifa's tits. Let's face it, everyone wants to see bigger, realistic tits so fuck off.

As long as we get a bits of conversational texts about how difficult it is getting a bra and how much her back hurts as well as a more proportional body shape, i'm alright with big Tifa tits.

There really hasn't been though has there? There's been a few sites reporting on the story and then the usual crowd screaming about SJW censorship in response.

I've literally read nothing about it besides my own posts and one reply in this thread. That there has actually been some bullshit about it reassures me that my goofin off is accurate satire.

I'll agree though, that this is much sexier than the new model

The trailer for the new Lupin III movie has been released and it's a perfect example of what the Final Fantasy VII remake should have looked like in terms of art direction...

That looks terrific, but I don't detect any FF7 flavour at all.

Yeah, like that's an example of a good adaption from 2d animation to 3D cgi, but there's not really any connection there.

This is fiercely appealing, but it isn't screaming FFVII to me

It's really not thought is it? It's got an interesting, unique battle system if you have the patience for it, it's got some interesting world locations. It's story starts off well enough, but it soon turns into an absolute mess and half the characters are bad.

People want to believe "8 is the best actually!" because of some of the unique things it does well, but it's got so much that lets it down.

Being based around a mercenary military academy doesn't help. Eco-terrorists are way cooler.

8 isnt it the best but the Junction system is pretty unique and interesting, i'd say its better than 7, 13, 11 and 12.

8 isn't as good as 7, 9, 10 and possibly 15. I hated it when I played it through again about five years ago. I think nostalgia is carrying it at this point. And that soundtrack.
