IGN - The Beyond crew discusses how going hands-on with Square's anticipated RPG was an incredible experience.
dammit, 5 days. cant control the hype. and i say this as my personal opinion as a jrpg lover and not as a true genuine real old whetever ff fan, that thisll be one of the best ff games ever. see all the positivity from just a demo that lacks 2/3rds of the combat's and 90% of games features makes me really hopefull
Agreed my hype friend.
I may be wrong but I think the demo cant be downloaded until the 20th.
"that thisll be one of the best ff games ever" The game hasn't even came out yet, even with the demo coming out you can't really say that until you play the full game Saw the exact same talk and hype before FF13 came out. Go into it slowly with an open mind, you're less likely to be disappointed.
"cant control the hype" Dont blame us , we are mortels.
Also at a loss at these guys saying their minds were blown when magic has yet to be added to the game or attacks. I mean, if they're putting out a playable version of the game, even if only a demo, and it doesn't have or need magic - then what's the point of having magic in the game at all?! Again, if magic is only a literal fx which doesn't have to be there, then what's the point of it being there?
@Godmars290 FF XIII's demo didnt have the paradigm system which was extremly important in the final game. SE clearly stated "This demo is not representative of the final product". So i would not worry about everything missing bieng useless.
I was hyped about FF-XIII also & wasn't at all disappointed with the game,it's one of my top favorite FF games.Now for the sequels that's another story.
Yea, this game is looking really epic. And as I have said before, even though the you don't get to control your whole team or recruit like old FF I am still digging the way this is turning out.
I can't wait to have it blow my mind next week.
Finally.....final fantasy is worthy again since FF9
I found FF10, 11,12 and 14:RR both incredibly enjoyable. Then there were the awesome Dissidia games and FF7:CC.
Honestly, this game looks horrible. I wish they kept the Turn-Based RPG game-play from the earlier Final Fantasy games. FF10 was the pinnacle of the series for me.
My issue is that only the aesthetics are being considered. That it has all of these little touches like how a character stands, another reacts and the cooking, but the main complaints about the bigger issues, story and characters, have yet to even be addressed.
The game isn't even out yet and people are already having issues with the characters and the story? How is that even sensible in the slightest?
From what we know of the story, it sounds really compelling, the characters on the other hand, are to early to tell. Well, disregarding their design.
So, just because it has a different battle system, that makes the game 'horrible'?
It's called evolving if this game is a seller then the future FF games will may just have a action battle system.FF games have been turned based for eons now so it's time to change it up & from what it seems people are loving it.Who's to say maybe S-E may go back to it's roots in FF-16,no one never knows with S-E.
Ugh, X was the one that started this downward spiral that square enix has been in since then, with XIV and XV it finally looks like they might get back to doing great games. I love turn based combat but its not anything that is suited for every rpg. I think it was sakagutchi himself who said that the reason they used turn based combat was because that was what would let them focus on great stories. On the nes/snes you really couldn't have a action rpg that tell you these grand stories like VI or VII. In some ways, Turn based combat really is a thing of the past. And that might not be such a bad thing.
I miss the turn based combat, as that is my favorite form of RPG. I love tactical maps when combat starts where each team gets a turn or each character based upon some "speed" (both can be done very well). I am ok with games that mix them like Dragon Age Inquisition or Transistor, but I definitely prefer Shadowrun or Divinity Original Sin. In my OPINION, I wish they had two versions of Final Fantasy, one strictly turn-based like the old ones, but with updated graphics and everything else. And one just like this one.
ff 10? really? by that statement there I acknowledge the rest of anything you have to say is bullshit 10 was good but the pinnacle HELL NO story was horrible
No one blinks at a 20k auto repair bill?
In Gils and the car doesnt look this much broken.
More to the point. Its one thing if gils = yen which is roughly $2k, but that's still two grand.
This is great! The demo is getting positive imprei'vesions from lots of reviewers! Hopefully this will be a great game. there will be chocobos again, airships, and driving again! I wanna see more oldschool final fantasy stuff like moogles as well :D I look forward to this combat.Hopefully it's a breath of fresh air! as a late fan of the older titles, I've been excited for this game when it was first announced in 2006 when I was 11. Holy crap! This game is real LOL
Only bummer is we can only control Noctis. :( in the other games you could control everyone. In tales games as well!
I know a lot of people are really going to scrutinize this demo after the XIII series rubbed many the wrong way. Good to see the demo being generally well-received. I'm interested in playing FF Type-0 but I'm not in a rush. It's good that I'll have about two months to hear more personal reviews about the FFXV demo to decide if it will be worth me getting a digital copy of FF Type-0 sooner than later.
Will digital version have the demo months from now?
Some of the articles that I have read said that the demo will be available with the digital version of FF Type-0 for two months after release so I hope its true :) http://www.destructoid.com/... •The demo will be released at the launch of Type-0 HD, on March 17, as a first-run new copy pack-in. You'll be able to download it immediately by way of a code. If you digitally purchase the game, you'll be able to net it for up to two months after release -- after that, it will be seemingly gone forever (though it seems as if license owners will keep their copies). There are no current plans for a standalone demo release so plan accordingly.
Aaahh!..finally we get a taste of this gem this Tuesday,hopefully a year from now we'll get to enjoy the entire pot.
It's nice to finally get a taste of it and it's looking/sounding good, although I still wish they had given each of the main characters distinctively different outfits.
