Square Enix's demonstration of the Luminous Studio technology.
Final Fantasy huh...? It looked good by all means, but didn't really have a "Final Fantasy" feel... Like... At all for me at least.
It certainly had the visual style of a FF game but when I saw terrorists with AK's I thought the same thing. Still it looked stunning and if that really was real time I can't wait to see what they can make on next gen consoles with it.
Oh yeah, visually it was indeed like a Final Fantasy, but something about the whole feel of terrorists with AK's, and the environment kinda felt awkward trying to stick a Final Fantasy name on it. Not sure exactly how to explain it, but I do agree if this was real time, that's very impressive.
"can't wait to see what they can make on next gen consoles with it." Another linear game with no exploration or character customization and lack of some important RPG elements. Seriously. Unfortunately, Final Fantasy 7, 6, 8 gameplay is dead. I don't play final fantasy for the graphics, I play it because I want a RPG experience. Now I enjoy playing Final Fantasy 1 remake for the PSP because it has all the RPG elements I love but I can't play Final Fantasy XIII for more than 5 minutes. I am glad we have games like: Demon's Soul, Xenoblade, Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect 2 etc.
Finally everyone can get a glimpse into what next gen will offer. But I'm sure there will be the zealots that will cling to their old hardware, lmao. 'tis pathetic actually...
"didn't really have a "Final Fantasy" feel" what is this final fantasy feel? FF games went from medieval fantasy worlds to high tech machines and guns and everything in between. i really wish we get back to the medieval-like settings. these futuristic settings are getting overdone with ff lately.
I think if you go on GT retrospective and look at the final episode of the final fantasy retrospective it tells you all the things that make final fatasy final fantasy. It's just a trailer so things arn't known but: No chocobos No Moogles No Airship Realistic Guns If that thing they created was a summon they should have made it look like bahamut so it had more of a feel, But like I said it's just a trailer who knows what it will actually be like. Not disagreeing with you as like I said its just a trailer with very little info.
@LyonKing I think the crystal is a major thing in FF games and that was in there. It looked like there were summons so i think it's alright. But right now we dont even know if its gonna materialize into a game or if its just a tech demo.
Where's Final Fantasy 13vs?
Aside from the stunning visuals, the trailer tells a better story than any recent Final Fantasy. Hopefully that's a sign of things to come for Square.
Its not graphics that's their problem its telling a story. Or rather, graphics has become a problem for them in telling a story. It and character over-dramatization rather than development.
Actually their problem is not releasing games they announce and games fans want. They already have a tech demo for next generation and where is Final Fantasy Versus XIII? Where is Kingdom Hearts 3 which has been begged from fans and instead they have released like 3 or 4 KH games in other consoles as spin offs? Their other biggest problem is that they are obsessed with trying to appeal to western audiences that they teamed up with MS and have been not worth it at all. Not ONE exclusive PS3 game from them this generation. And the absolute biggest problem is still having Wada as president. As long as he is there, Square Enix will be in a free fall to mediocrity.
So supposedly some of this tech is already being used for FF vs.13..well the lighting engine at least. Of course this is all CG visuals which Squarenix is well known for so other than being pretty not much else. Remember the last time they did a tech demo to excite us? Not holding my breath just yet.
Yea, I'm still hoping for that FF VII remake .. one day i tell myself, one day.
all of its real time actually. Do some research and you'll know.
When you say "CG visuals" do you mean pre-rendered? Because this is apparently being rendered in real time. If it's true then it's pretty ridiculous, and it's obviously not going be on the current gen. As for people saying it doesn't have a Final Fantasy feel - I can understand where you're coming from with the whole "dudes with AK's" thing but it still looks like Final Fantasy to me. I mean, what exactly is a Final Fantasy "theme"? They all have completely different worlds with different themes. I like the look of this.
"If it's true then it's pretty ridiculous, and it's obviously not going be on the current gen. : This. With our current tech..that is extremely not possible at all...
Did you not see the "REAL TIME" in the beginning? It's a tech demo for their new engine.
This is why I prefer the Japanese style of "fantasy" RPG. It's so... Fantastical. And unique. That said, this tech demo better mean something for final fantasy.
i wish its not taking 8 years 2 release like FF 13 Vers
Awesome... I really liked it. HOWEVER, instead of spending precious man power on this tech demo, it would have been nice to have those extra people working on Versus...so it can you know actually be released.
Sqeeninx is apparently looking for feedback on this demo. whether we would like to see this in a game.. https://form.square-enix.co...
Submitted my feedback. everyone else should too.
Oh heck freaking yes. And WTF? Why is this not headlining N4G right now? Next to Watch Dogs this is the greatest thing to come out of this year's pathetic E3. Seriously, my faith in Square-Enix has been renewed! BTW, UE4 looked paltry compared to the Luminous Engine.
i gotta feeling that next gen .. is the gen i been waitin on... since back when i used to watch ps2 fmv always wished it looked this good
Very nice, but I think this would be great for a Parasite Eve 3, too!
Oh man, those look like cutscenes! That's great! So this is what next-gen is to look like? I'm all for it!
Most intriguing. The AK-47s may be somewhat unsuitable, but perhaps it's to show the applicability of the engine Luminous Studios have created? High-powered PCs might be capable of doing this level of graphics but I highly doubt the consoles can without some level of degraded quality, as this may be what they aim for in the next generation of consoles. I wonder if Epic are looking behind their shoulder at this point?
Sweet lord, that was beautiful.
The hair texture quality and the sheer high fidelity of it are what really make this look CG especially in motion. If this really is PS4/ Durango bring them on! BTW.......Anyone else see similarities.....??
FF Versus XIII may as well just skip over to PS Orbis and Xbox Durango
Square enix:Yo we heard you like final fantasy 13vs tough luck here is what we will do before that... Final fantasy versus or just fuck off square enix. Btw in feedback is there a option that says just give us fucking ff13vs instead of tech demo's?
Looks really good. I don't know how the transition to next gen console gaming will go with the current economy and all, but will be interesting to know what it's like to play games with real-time CGI-like graphics. Other than that, FFXIV 2.0 and FFXIV for PS3 should be the only thing they should be showcasing at E3.
and that fucking FFVersusXIII... -.- sorry for the bad language :P
I just can't describe how much i love this .. simply Amazing It looks like the Tech Demo Events somewhere in Arabian Country !
i was eating my cornflakes and Muslims with ak47 got me.
I'll believe this when I'm actually playing it. Sorry for coming across as a jaded gamer but I am and have every reason yo be. We've been teased by false tech demos before and for some odd reason I don't exactly trust Square Enix these days.
anybody felt that Final Fantasy VII vibe? I sure did.
I am very excited at the prospect of this... even if the words “Tech Demo” and “Square Enix” usually mean absolutely nothing. However, I would like for Versus to be officially shown off in a big way long before the next main FF is unveiled. Still, the prospect of next gen is... enticing.
OMG can't wait for it to come out in ten years XD
cutting edge tech, the mix of real world with fantasy might work if they can pull it off. Lets hope they already have it running on our current consoles, cuz i don't want to wait 3 to 4 years.
Was that a summoned Valefor?
I sure hope so.
This is a tech demo demonstrating their new engine for next-gen consoles. Anyone complaining about the "feel" are a bunch of retards. It's always been SE goal to achieve CGI quality graphics in real-time and it looks like next-gen they'll achieve that without breaking a sweat. Bravo SE bravo. the long wait for FFvs13 wasn't Tetsuyo Nomuras fault, it was Wadas fault for pushing FF13 and 13-2.
Looks phenomenal. And I loved the music and feel of it too. I have a feeling that this is one of the reasons Versus is taking so long. SE are making there own engines with Crystal Tools and Luminous. Since Versus is using Luminous theres a great chance that they are just learning how to use it and that is why its taking years for it to come out.
Looks phenomenal.... Its now up to Sony and Microsoft to not skimp on next gen tech like Nintendo so we can enjoy this level of visual splendor on PS4 and Xbox 720
