Ridiculous superstition be damned. Square Enix is moving ahead with the thirteenth installment of the role-playing juggernaut Final Fantasy series.
very sexy rite now
FFXIII FTW! All I can say is Pure Mondo Kewlness!
juuken IDemonstalkerXI sumfood4u all u get bubble and sumfood4 thanks again for the list of tribecalledquest u the man sumfood4u
FF baby, this game alone justifies a ps3 purchase.
Final Fantasy is among others, the number 1 reason I buy a new Playstation everytime. Looks incredible... The only thing I'm not sure of is (sorry if it sounds sexist) the female protagonist. As a male it might be harder to relate to a female character. But it's way too early to know anything, who knows what characters you'll play through out the game. Super stoked for this game, and unlike too many next gen games, you know this one won't be beat in one weekend.
Um, you don't relate to Samus Aran, Lara Croft, or any of the women from Resident Evil? Can't be that hard.
It's an opinion, not something you can argue with me about. And no I don't relate to lara croft. It was merely a point, sometimes in games like final fantasy if you can't relate to the character or feel where they're coming from it can make the experience less enjoyable (not necessarily saying that's the case here)... That's MY opinion, not yours.
Meh, it's alright I suppose but I still don't like the Si-fish theme to it. I like the look and feel of part 9 and will always hold it as the best of the series in my opinion. I would love it if Square ever went back to that style on the ps3.
ok. lets send them an email and tell them to stop making 13, start from scratch and make it look like the previous ones.
Do you know that every game is NOT for YOU. FF 9 is over. They will never go backwards unless it's a spin off. Just go buy something else when the world is playing Final Fantasy XIII. :)
Who the fvck are you kid????!!!! you keep talking sh1t every time something good comes up on the PS3...get your stupid ass comments to the open zone or even better get the fvck out of the PS3 threads. You are the worst kind of fanboy...the ones that don't admit it...go play your 360 or wii if you even know how to play at all...
*cough* TROLL *cough* GO BACK TO THE OPEN ZONE KID *cough* Sorry bout that almost choked on my own spit.
I hate to say this but...you're annoying.
Nice wishlist but I don't care for online play. Focus on the single player experience. XIII is shaping up to be the best in the series and it's being developed by the teams that made VII and X. =)
I hope they don't tack on online play to this thing. That's going to signify the end of RPGs as we know them. Why even have one anymore, they'll just become MMO's now. Lame.
I agree. They're working on another MMO so I say leave the online play for the MMO, XIII doesn't need it. Besides, I don't like MMO's.
online play wouldn't necessarily make it and MMO though. When I think MMO, I think massive time sink in order to gain one level. I see the need for a party to do missions and gain good XP. Adding an online component to your average single player RPG could be something totally different. Here's what got me though, have I missed something, "Unreal Technology (Square Enix has licensed the Unreal engine) to complement the game's beautiful graphics." I thought they were using an engine built from the ground up? By the way ... I know it's a wish list.
That MMO is not an FF title though. If said MMO was a new FFMMO I would agree. I want some FF online. You can tell that FF13 will be the MGS4 of its genre. Its SE's pride and joy right now. Versus looks to be great. Online will help with the withdraws after beating FF13, and entertain till Versus releases. I believe... FF13 and Versus use Crystal Tools Engine. Last Remnant and Infinite Undiscovery use Unreal Engine 3.
Usually previews have some kind of information about the game that is being previewed. This doesn't. As mentioned above, it's a wish list.
Exactly! This isn't a preview at all and shouldn't be labeled as one including the 'plus video' at the end cuz it's the same old video from earlier this year. This really pissed me off. Previews should have NEW hands-on information. Bunch of BS this story is.
I'm not too hot with the way it's going. I don't want it to turn into an action-rpg. And WTH Gamepro,no hands-on and still a preview? And what do I care about online play and support.This seems so odd. Is this really FF? Squaresoft is dead,long live Square Enix. Don't mess around with the game please.
I wanted it to be an action RPG but it is turn-based. It'll be the most fast paced turn-based combat system ever made for a Final Fantasy game and from I hear it will look very cinematic. Think Advent Children. I'm not really sure what to expect but we'll understand how it works when they FINALLY decide to show it. The series needs to evolve and I personally loved Final Fantasy XII for the changes they made. Some people hated the gambit system but I loved it. Edit: I'm not rick rolling anybody right now. Final Fantasy XIII will have a very fast paced ATB battle system. Do you guys visit finalfantasyxiii.net at all? http://www.finalfantasyxiii...
At this point,I find myself more interested in White Knight Chronicles and Team ICOs upcoming game more so than FF13,this can all change though with a new video or two from Square.
Rick-Roll me? Edit:(I was trying to make a joke,nevermind)
I remember reading somewhere that FF13's Battle system is similar to FF12's and FF13 Versus is action rpg.
I totally agree with you about 12 being pretty good and about the series need to evolve. I am a absolutely DIEHARD final fantasy fan, but I must admit that the new non-turn based combat system featured in 12, though radically different from previous iterations, was a marked improvement. I think one of the main reasons that 12 will go down as one of the more mediocre final fantasies (so still pretty awesome) is the story and, more specifically, the characters. The voice acting was average at best and, aside from Balthier, there really weren't any overly likeable characters. Still, the gambit system and the ability to see your enemies before engaging them (even the giant bosses) was an interesting and welcome improvement. At least that's my two cents.
that video is ages old. misleading title ftl!!
I got confused and was hoping for the new vid of Dissidia they are showing to S-E Members on their website...
I don't think online play would be a good idea either. I don't see it working all too well anyway so they should just focus on making it as good of a single-player experience as they can. I also disagree about having less angst and more 'sassiness'. I love angst in my Final Fantasy. And I'm afraid 'sassiness' to Square would be following a route similiar to FFX-2. FFX could possibly be my favorite... but X-2 was just difficult to even look at. Absolutely silly. Not to mention Yuna's character seemed to be forcibly sexed up. Not in line with her personality from the first at all. I don't care if she's 'grown up' or 'gotten stronger' or whatever the hell excuse they'd use. And FFXII I haven't even bothered with yet because I've heard the story is crap compared to most of the others, and that's a huge reason why I play Final Fantasy games. I'm just hoping they stick mostly to the classic formula with a tweaked battle system. It APPEARS as though the latter is going to be pretty sweet.
unreal engine doesnt deserve to be in this great game
It's not. The engine for XIII is called Crystal Tools. Edit: They can't do that/ Sorry UE3 fans lol. The Last Remnant will use that stupid engine though. No wonder the colors look so fake and washed out and dark.
i know but gamepro wants them to combine it with crystal tools
No Unreal Engine 3 in this game... Cuz when i see The Last Remnant, it's just terrible
I agree I want to see Crystal Tools engine at work.
Uh, FF13 is using the Crystal Engine. Brand new and never used. Unreal is overused and overrated.
Lost Odyssey showed me that turn-based RPGs don't bore me into a coma as bad as I thought, so MAYBE I'll give it a try. Isn't versus supposed to play like Kingdom Hearts though (the REAL best RPG ever)?
yeah Vesus is action rpg, but XIII won't be fully old school turn-based like LO.
Probably the sole reason I bought a PS3, matter of fact thats the main reason I bought Sony hardware over 3 generations. I definitely cant wait to this one comes out!!!
FF13 is DEFINITELY the reason I bought a PS3. Though this is an old clip, it still makes my stomach clench in anticipation whenever I see it. I especially love the violin solo during her fight against the soldiers in the train. It really looks like its going to be a beautiful game. I just hope they add a low-brow character or two (a la Barrett or Steiner). I feel like that might have been one of the few mistakes made by 12. Don't get me wrong, I like well-written, dry, british accented dialogue as much as the next person, but when every single character in the story sounds almost exactly the same, it sort of makes it difficult for you to truly grow attached to them. Give me a guns blazin' racial stereotype like Barrett or a vicious monster like Kimahri or a guy who just reeks of badassitude like Auron and I'll be happy.
Lovin' it. FF is king of jrpgs.
lol there was only one guy (sandman) posting comments...it was hilarious to read...
2nd game in my most wanted list. MGS4 took off 1st place so this one is bumped to No. 1
I have never played a final fantasy game before but I am definitely getting this game. The graphics in this game are the bomb. I think the part where they shew the menu was in-game. The gameplay looks amazing as well.
Best part of this article is the comments below the original post.
did i see "in-game gameplay" in that video? if so, i must say impressive. just hope there will be a great story along w/great graphic.
Oh how I can't wait to play this. Played all the FF's and passed them more than 7 times each except for 12 which im on my second play through. This game looks amazing. Better start reserving them action figures. I still cant find rikku -.-
this is not the ue3. They making final fantasy series using crystal tools which was built specifically for the ps3. If they had working versions of the ue3 for ps3 then they would be releasing their smaller titles at the same time as 360.
Same trailer we've been watching for 2 years. PLEASE give us some in game footage...jeez!
uhhh... there is in-game footage in there. the trailer isn't all CGI.
Just because you saw a HUD and some points flying up doesn't mean that was in-game footage.
I almost got a tear in my right eye. Very impressive and colourfull display right there. The wait/day just got very very very long wait/day.
the guy on the comments.
DAMN! That cat S4NDM4N is friggin' hilarious. 106 posts, all by himself, in a row. lol
UNREAL TECH ARE YOU KIDDING. they want unreal tech in FFXIII that's sad. The Crystal Tools look WAY better then Unreal Engine 3 there is NO reason for SE to use unreal on anything with the final fantasy name ever. The unreal engine as we have seen is very difficult to use to make games that aren't about big muscle headed space marines. Look at Lost Odyssey it didn't look nearly as good as it could have. Most of the stuff on that little list was also pointless and stupid. They only had a few good things to add. What was the point of this anyway they gave us no new info and showed us a old trailer that's great Gamepro Really great.
I just don't know if this game will be Great as, I did not like Final fantasy 12 that much as I like FFX and FF7/8. I wonder about gameplay mechanism.... I know the graphics will be good, so no worries there. "a turn-based mechanic with real-time elements will return" Yes!!! so there is still a Turn-Base element to it. "Wandering on-screen monsters-thus eliminating random battles-as seen in Final Fantasy XII." I think wandering animals look stupid and can easily be avoided, I LOVE RANDOM BATTLES. More challenging.
make PS3 number one in the universe, you just watch.
