Discussing Customizable Characters, Battle System, and FFXIII and Versus Connections, The Final Fantasy XIII Podcast back again for May,
I remember when FF10 launched on the Ps2,it felt like Christmas had come early(literally) lol
The only problem I had with FF10 was that it did not have a world map. I don't like RPG's that are too linear. Give me a FF7 remake or sequel and THEN it will be christmas! lol.
FFX was one of the best RPG's.. nay, GAME ever to be made it was just amazing linear, but goddamn sweet
"Lost Odyssey" is as close as it has come, since that game.(seriously) I'm gonna go with "History" here. My PS3 was partially bought because of the PS's Jrpg nature, which has been a disappointment up till now. Not to worry, I've been getting my W/Jrpg fix on Xbox 360 though. All the (first) "Final Fantasies" coming out on a "Next-Gen" console have been Great, if you ask me. I do not doubt this game will. The last one that was great, which came out at the end of the consoles "life-cycle" was the one on Super Nintendo FF6. FF12 just didn't do it for me. Personally, up till FFX, I have not really enjoyed any of the new Final Fantasies. I still have FF12 and have not yet finished it.(still trying to find a reason to go back) What does that have in common, All the "TOP SELLING" FF's were all or have been "Turn-Base" combat.(something we now called old-school). In fact, I wouldn't mind an RPG that gives you an Option for Action-based/Turn-based combat but as we know Square Enix sets the standard. They could easily go back to turn-based and Japanese games would buy it but we westerners have gotten used to Western RPG style. So I have no doubt, this game will be good, as well as a console seller.(just watch japan go crazy). Is till wonder, about the game mechanics, I need to know more, besides that, it will be a good looking game. Will it be like Final Fantasy 12? No way I'm saying this game will be the best in the Series, just because it's on better hardware. Since everyone is still waiting for something like "Final Fantasy VII"-like game. If you take a look at what "FFVII" did,(Story, graphics, music, FMV), how do you compare it to today style of Jrpg? Everything will have to be on par.
AIRSHIPS ARE BACK ON FINAL FANTASY XIII THIS WILL BE AWESOME
Is there a possible release date for this game yet? Cos I can see this going on into 2010 and I really don't want that to happen
It's going to be the best Final Fantasy game in the series yet. Some of you might not know this so I'll tell you. XIII is being developed by the team that did Final Fantasy X. :)
Wait, did the FF 8 team work on FF 13 too, or is the FF 8 team also the FF 10 team
The list of the main developers along with their previous projects can be found here. http://www.ff-xiii.net/inde...
Wow It's literally all the classic FF directors and programmers that are working on XIII. Boy oh boy I am gonna enjoy this.
I'm more excited about there being key-contributers from FF6 and 7 working on the title, both on gameplay and directing.
This is looking to be the best FF yet This game is one of the many reasons i bought a Ps3
Best aVATAR eVAR!!
This is a system seller... I can tell you that because I have a PS3 and I am getting FFXIII, and my girlfriend still wants her own PS3 and copy of FFXIII... So imagine how the 360/Wii FF fans feel. Thanks for the info Gates; I think 10 was the best overall... I think VIII had my favorite story, and XII had my favorite gameplay, but X was great both ways. I hope XII is open-world like XII, not so linear like X, and costomizable characters sounds great... I mean, this time, when I change suits of armor, I want to notice a visual difference.
...i hope they return back to the days of ATB. I enjoyed 12, but i LOVED the battle system from X ALOT. It will also be cool to see if they can get the cinematic look from Advent Children into a turned base system. Imagine the possibilities! Watch out WRPGs (Oblivion, Mass Effect), the JRPG (Final Fantasy) is on the prowl to regain the RPG King crown! XD -Squall
nah, leave that to Dragon Quest its time to move on judging by the trailer and the scans in magazines that i read, FF13 will have a fluid, almost action-like battle system that allows you to pre-program moves and select them on the fly which sounds very nice
... right. One reason I love(oldschool) JRPGS so much is the turn based system. I don't care about random encounters (as long as they are not as annoyingly often as in Skies of Arcadia), altghough I prefer the way FFXII did it. If they make this game use the ATB system... I'll be the first one to queue up for it.
But can't we go back to ATB for just one game.... Please....??!! Or maybe (probably impossible) a system to choose ATB or Open, but XIII is looking sweet in it's current battle style
this game is going to be omfg!
cant wait( wich i will still have to )
I know they are revising the battle system from 12, which is fine by me because it was easily my least favorite FF. I felt it took too much control of the situation out of your hands.
same, except for XI- which i choose to disregard as an FF game the battle system in 12 had some interesting ideas, but it also ended up being a lot less tactical and a lot more repetitive than X im sure they'll do a good job on 13
I agree, I've already seen on the same website as the link that it is going to be different from 12. On the site it says they are trying to do the combat like advent children, which could unbelievable if they find a way to make it work.
yeah, well its supposed to be very fluid, cinematic and easy to use so perhaps it could resemble Advent Children somewhat
Well like I said almost anything would be better than 12.
GOTY 2009 by a long shot even if Resi 5 gets pushed back to 09 @Kurochi oh yeah i forgot about GOW, but i still think FF has the edge 2009 will be the best year IMO, so many epic games coming out
I don't know man..... God of War III is coming out 2009 (I'm praying)..... But my vote is still for FFXIII. But Killzone 2 is scheduled to be released also in Feb. 2009..... Argh!!!!! So many games.... it's like being Homer at the donut shop trying to figure out which ones to get..... LOL It's nice to have a both systems that counts.
well nd new game will prob come out then. and a new insominac game. eight days ,la noire
hmm has a good chance because God of War is notoriously short, but nobody really knows what's going on there. I can't see Killzone 2 beating FF13 because like Bioshock and COD4 this year, its hard for a FPS to take on adventure/RPG games and win. Oblivion raped the competition, and Gears of War had no competition that year. FFF13 + customizable characters = no sleep for me when the game is released. I actually think that FF13's only GOTY competition will be FF vs 13...if you can customize characters in that...OOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMM GGGGGGG!!!! i have to stop thinking about this b4 the anticipation kills me
Will the wait be worth it? I sincerely think so...
...IN A FINAL FANTASY ARE SEPHIROTH AND KEFKA
and i hope this is FINAL FANTASY VII.
If FXIII is anything like FFX i'd be much more than happy. I loved the story to FFX, it was so original.
Customizable Characters + Good Story = A Happy Final Fantasy Fan! I still wish they make FFXI~online for the PS3 i look forwards to when this Arrives!
