Hm, I think it might be too early to tell from the footage they've released, but he could just mean you have to get into cover in order to use health items without getting attacked mid animation and having the item use canceled. Even if it is regenerating health though, I'm getting enough JRPG's next year that I wouldn't mind if one of them was easier to play.
I blame COD.
How cool of you. The original halo that we all love is the first game I can remember with regenerating shields (health, same thing). Why is it so cool to hate cod these days? Do you think you're original for doing so?
He's doing it because it makes him feel warm and fuzzy inside seeing the amount of agrees he gets
I don't blame COD for having regenerative health, I blame COD for being popular, which results in other games taking example from it.
LOL! How sad... as with the open world craze, health regen is not needed in every game.
While this is true it doesn't necessarily mean it will damage or ruin the title.
Regen has always been a staple in Final Fantasy.
Lol! That is so true. On topic: We don't really know how it's going to work yet though, people need to hold off assumptions until we get the demo in March. It's not that far off now, we can start making accurate arguments on things once we actually PLAY the game.
True but it won't stop people moaning and assuming, the quote doesn't exaplin anything, recover =/= regen =/= heal etc. Recover can mean simply to take a break for all we know(although I doubt it), I too think cover will be used to cast buffs/healing spells. Although thinking about it, KH games and heal..kinda made the battle system less fun. "must save magic for healing...not for other spells"
I'm okay with it, so long if they do it like Xenoblade did it's health regain.
During battle or after battle... very different scenarios. I'd personally rather neither as I like the challenge. Regen health in my day "the fossil that is a 25 year old lol" was a magic skill I had to cast.... now its built in :( But hey, at least it looks pretty!!!!
I'm assuming during as the quote mentions taking cover from attacks “There is also a cover system where you can avoid attacks to recover. It has a very close effect similar to defending yourself.”
I'm sure it's post-battle. Xenoblade did that too and everybody liked that game.
but.. but Curaga!
Hey... curaga is now an automated pre determined effect that takes place at 10% HP.... gamers today couldn't grasp casting it themselves.... lol
They are prob still using Cure... Pfff Do they even Grind?
Well, you have to include as many western ideas as possible.
No need for white mages or healers eh? No need for magic attacks eh? This is not a fantasy rpg. Square screws up again. Thank god for american rpgs now. Bring on a new single player Elder Scrolls!
Where did you read it ? Does he really need to re-explain 100% of the game every sentence ? You know there is magic in FF XV , they said it plenty of times , but you just wanted to say "SE fuck you ".
ty atleast square have finally realised we are in 2015
Casual player detected.
dont know what you mean by casual but its just a game dont want hours of unnecessary work. i already have too much work also why are ppl so against change. its ffxv. which clearly means there were 14 iterations before this. do you want to play the exact same game as the first one?
@pandehz That's what the "hardcore" final fantasy fans want. they want to change FF into COD where it's the same game over and over just because they liked the previous installment
Right. I mean at this point, they should just have the game attack for you as well. You can just hold the controller and pretend like you're doing it all. [shakes head]
If you want the game easier that's fine, but don't pretend it's anything else it doesn't matter what year it is people aren't afraid of change, they just don't want things made easier just to cater to people who want their hand held through the game
Cover system, health regen... Are we talking about Final Fantasy or Call of Duty?
They made The Trhid Birth-day = legit cover system. They made FF type 0 = legit health regen. And if it is enough to go from Final Fantasy to Call of Duty , that means you dont know both of these franchise.
Final Fantasy has had cover and regen ever since the originals. Its a matter of gaming culture. Oh and fyi, CoD doesnt have a cover system.
They will prob slap on a cover system in the new COD and call it innovative.. smh
Cover and regen? You mean the spells right?
Well they certainly pulling pages from The Last Story.
From that footage i am way more intrigued about FF15, interesting.
I was gonna heal myself after every battle anyway....
So much information about XV is being released. You'd think they'd come up with a release date to tell us soon. Why'd the announce it so early.. it's been 9 years now. I was 11 and now I'm a college student -.-
We never know ^^ . Surly a release date in march (after the demo). And Noctis said himself : "It's been long time coming , alost here". End 2015 would be perfect but early 2016 isnt bad too.
I really hope so. :3
Uncharted doesn't really use cover to replenish health it uses time
Please don't fuck this game up square enix. This is really your last chance to redeem yourself for the garbage that was FFXIII. Please keep the RP in RPG... I don't mind this being action oriented but for God sakes give us a proper level up system and deep itemization. I want to feel like I'm in control of leveling up my characters and have a sense of progression. And if you're going to cater to the casual crowd at least throw us hardcore players something and offer us end game challenges. I used to love having to max out my characters back in ff7 in order to defeat emerald and ruby weapons for example.
This is just getting ridiculous. Watch fanboys defend this imposter "Final Fantasy" all the way until FFXVI is n online only FPS. Stupud fans and company greed will be the death...or rather, ugly transformation of this industry.
You should totally join the Sith Order. Your amount of hate would make you a powerful Sith!
As stated by Sileconera "There is also a cover system where you can avoid attacks to recover. It has a very close effect similar to defending yourself. It’s not like you’re covering yourself from a shower bullets, but there are some natural environments where you can recover your HP and then go back into battle" So it's not like you can do it at any given time. Once again, people are overreacting... The health that you regain will probably be just enough to get you out of a critical state. I'm still betting on Cure though.
