GC - "We have some new details on Noctis and gang."
For a second there I thought I was redirected to a males clothing catalog.
Noctis is Lightning's son!? Now they've gone too far!
These names are lame. We should protest and force SE to change the names.
At least they all look like adults (18+), not some teenagers. And hopefully act accordingly too... I really hope this will be one real dark, gothic FF, we've all waited for.
Noctis always reminds me of Cactus dammit , each time they say it but anyways i hope we see playable female characters in the game just like Fran , Penelope , Ashe or maybe they might want to include Fran , she was one lovely bunny with her basass skypirate partner Balthier . God i miss that game . I dont know why people hate it , i thought it was incredible .
I hope to god none of these guys end up to be annoying characters like Hope or Snow.
With hair as fabulous as that? No waaay... I've never played a Final Fantasy, but I'm way more optimistic about this game than any of it's predecessors (riding chickens is DUMB).
I just don't want them to be all cheesy with their friendship like some past FF games. It would totally go against the more serious vibe the game gives off
Yeah, here's hoping there aren't too many "You guys are like the brothers I never had. I don't know what I'd ever do without you." moments... The promo vids felt like a 'Miyazaki meets Hellsing meets Darker than Black' mash-up... Hopefully the tone will be consistent. To my eyes, the previous entries always had a 'Disney-esque' quality (the singing doesn't help), and the characters were either hyper-melodramatic or soulless bores... XV looks different.
It's Chocobos not chickens man, Chocobos lol
there will almost certainly be chocobo riding in this game
Chocobos huh? Sounds like the name for some kind of racist lollypop... And why the hell are these people riding them when they've got cars and frikkin' airships?
"And why the hell are these people riding them when they've got cars and frikkin' airships?" That's like asking why people ride horses and bikes when we have cars and planes instead.
Their last names are weird.
Latin. This game is steeped in latin/Roman empire influence.
Ignis Stupeo ?, whats next Tidus Fakeur ? Sigfried Idioto ? :D, almost 10 years and you SE couldn't come with better names ? Why not just normal names...
Coming up with better names and risk another delay? no thanks :P
Yeah i agree with you. No delay please, but the names is funny hehe
That's something I've noticed since FFXII; a lot of characters have really strange names that are difficult to remember. lol
What is strange about them?
Vaan , Penelope , Fran , Balthier , Ashe and Basche and i still remember them to this day because they were awesome .
@DarkOcelot: But do you remember their full names off the top of your head? Or Balthier's real name? Or the villains' full names? Or the names of most locations? I'm just sayin'. The name of character and locations got a lot less...I don't know...."catchy" since FFXII came around. "Cid Highwind" is easier to remember than "Doctor Cidolfus Demen Bunansa".
With that avatar, I would've expected you already knew about these names. After all, they've been known about for years, and since the game has latin/Roman empire influence these names fit the empire/kingdom they have established. If you think the character names are bad, you're going to be horrified with the location names.
Im just happy the game's coming.
Very informative, can't wait to play the demo.. And of course the full version, I hope that SE will decide to release it next year.
im a bit worried about cor leonis... he's suppose to be one of the mains and playable so why was he left out of this...
i think he will join the team later on as the game progresses because he is 1 of the 3 strongest fighters of Lucis afterall Events: Noctis and gang driving to the date They get attacked Back to Lucis for Peace talks His Father gets murdered Everyone is trying to kill Noctis and his gang and Cor comes in to save the day :P
You can bet some of the voice actors in FFXIII to be in there. And judging by their Ages there going to get young voice actors. Prompto argentum is a pretty boy and he over exaggerates in the trailer. the possibility of him getting Vincent Martella is high. Troy baker could be Gladiolus or Ignis. Tim Phillipps or Johnny Yong Bosch for Noctis, and Yuri Lowenthal could be Ignis as well. my predictions.
Lightning and Ashe are more manly than all of them haha
It's ironic because your avatar is a character who is less manly then the ones you're mocking, haha. You should put Duke Nukem for your avatar if you're going to make that post.
Umm Asbel slams Cheria and possibly Sophie all day long boiii
I don't even understand the complaints that the characters are too feminine. They're obviously men. They have male faces, male bodies, and male voices. They just look like typical 20-something Japanese guys.
"New".... you keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.
I'm not going to read the article. All I know is that judging from the trailer this game will be gamechanging for the industry. If there is any game I think this has the most potential. Are there any other games that have this amount of potential?
I bet one bucks that one of Noctis friends will betray him. My money is on Ignis. Anyway, i craved a medieval / dark knight characters in main FF (not the online number) like Kain from FF IV or the judges from FF XII. Their armor always looks cool compare to boring standard clothes like this one. I wonder if SE will return to medieval setting for FF XVI and hiring Yoshitaka Amano or Akihiko Yoshida as character designers.
Tetsuya Nomura makes some really badass characters armors , i mean look at my avatar of Terra from Kingdom Hearts . His armor looks awesome so i expect some badass hidden boss fights with cool looking characters/monsters .
If i'm not wrong, in the old versus trailer Noctis fighting a female dragoon knight on some airship and the rumour that she will join Noctis party after we defeat her. I hope that female character still there and Nomura not changed her design.
Noctis and Gladiolus are some really cool names for these two beautifully designed characters. I really hope the game isn't two focused on the power of friendship and takes on the serious tone that caused me to originally fall in love with this title.Can't wait for the demo!
I agree my hype for this is huge. However have you looked into xenoblade chronicles x? That is looking to be truly great. This trailer gave me similar vibes. Massive enemies. Massive world to explore. Im hoping its enemies aren't scaled. And if they are i hope it is like kingdom hearts with some super bosses thay are hard no matter what. As long as square Enix plans on releasing a turn based rpg on next gen consoles im fine with nomura providing the soul for the future of final fantasy. Now if we could get a winter 2015 release my hope would hit unforseen levels.
Xenoblade chronicles X doesn't even compare to this game and this is coming from someone who doesn't like FF type games. This one here is a must buy ;)
Shinier anyways.. "What does the crow say?"
