Level-5 is AWESOME!!!!!
LOL! Square - pre E3 = AWESOME! Square - post E3 = BAAAAAAAAAAAW! THEY SUCK!
1.1 joined 24mins ago and he is already proven himself yet another lying cheating [email protected] ass ps3 fanboy and Zerodin you are correct. but what do you expect from liars, cheaters and the biggest group of loser fanboys in gaming? every day i see the pos3 in last place i think about these losers and get a smile on my face.
Its all Microsofts fault !!! I loved it when they were Squaresoft They changed my life and the world around me ! I know all about Squares past and how Final Fantasy got to be made. Let me tell you that with Square Enix steering the Final Fantasy Boat. the series is going downhill ! into an ocean with a tsunami following them from behind, with nothing to look forward to, but a thunderstorm that leads them to a whirpool. One day they may go, BANG !whirlppool.
They became Square-enix, long before Microsoft started making Sony look bad.
I said it all Microsofts fault becuase they Showed them money they introduced them greed and ruined the company. their not a company that makes money through Hard work anymore ! even if they make an AAA game i wont feel happy. becuase i know they didnt put their blood , heart and hardwork into it to make it like Squaresoft used to!
A company that wants to make money?! What kind of crazy sh!t is THAT?!?! Does anyone else do that? I am sure glad that no other companies are out to make money! That would be SUPER bad!
lie some more ps3 fanboy thats all your kind is good for. lie lie lie lie lie. not go eat some curry you hypocritcal bastard.
why are u giving black peopel a bad name you fa* if your black you are definatley one of the most disgusting lamest black bast*rd i have ever met u make black people look s bad, go to hell !!!! i doubt nayone likes. all your friend probably just think your a nerd . if i saw you on the streets i would slam u to the kirb if you talk to me like that! "go eat you curry?" huh
Agreed. Take freaking forever to release their top game and delayed for a port job is even worst. Another grip: Wtf is with all the dam closed showing all these years and no gameplay footage? People expected gameplay footage TGS. All they got is closed showings. 4 years and still nothing. mother f***ers.
The Closed Mega Theatre is a cage for Square Enix's arrogance. Nothing more.
Squre have been going pretty downhill since FF7 i heard :P
And we still haven't seen a decent SE game? It seems they put so much into making FFXIII a big massive project that by the time they get around to pumping out games we'll be waiting for the next gen to start. I really like their games like Kingdom Hearts, and Dragon Quest (although I thought that was Level 5).
Crisis Core was great, and Dissidia , parasite eve 3rd birthday look good. They have not fallen they are just spread to thin with so many projects these days. They maybe to concentrated on making profit since the time when they almost failed after making the spirits within movie and there stock went to penny's. They have swung to a buisiness mode that is less concentrated game and more like EA. I agree the closed mega theater needs to be bulldozed.
They should just cancel it for 360 and leave it Ps3 exclusive! Because if it was a Ps3 exclusive it would be the greatest game ever, and no other game would ever be able to beat it. Because the Ps3 just has that magic that makes anything great, but only if it's exclusive to the Ps3, because other consoles can't bring out my true emotions like the Ps3 can and make me feel all warm and fuzzy insine like a little kid waiting for santa claus to show up! (Imitation of a fanboys true thoughts that they won't admit) It's a F***in game B***hes.... get over it! And quit trying to blame the 360 for FFXIII being released so late! SE always had it planned to release the game in 2009 anyway. It took them almost 3 years just to make Final Fantasy: Advent children! And considering they are making the same amount or more in CG video, and adding lots of gameplay (do the math fanboy), you will realize that the main reason they haven't released it or shown much is because of this fact! And before anyone else wants to talk about how much the 360 is crippling Ps3 games... Look at Devil May Cry 4 as an example! It was originally developed exclusively for Ps3, and was far enough in development when they showed its power! Yet, the 360 seemed to have got the better out of the deal, considering I can put DMC 4 in a 360 and play it almost right away. As opposed to buying it for Ps3 and waiting 20+ minutes and using 5.7 Gb's of a HDD for a mandatory install. Which is odd, because it was created for the Ps3 and ported to the 360!
Opinion submission = fail.
thats all they got what do you expect? they are liars and cheats and the scum of gaming. i can say no more about them.
They just need a good ass swooping. Hopefully Level-5 blowing up will cause them to shape up. For the next few years Level-5 will kick Squares ass, maybe this will show them that catering to your fans is actually a profitable venture. Square has some incredibly creative people working for them, and I'd really like to see those minds put to work on new innovative projects, not just FF games.
Indeed. They are like EA. Before EA needed an a** whipping to bring out great games like Dead Space, Battlefield Bad Company, Burnout, and soon to come out Mirror's edge. Published Spore and Crysis. Thanks Activision but you suck.
Is that sony is turning it around with more exclusive quality games, like WKC which will crush all JRPGS on the xbox 360, except SO4 maybe... And they are releasing a lot of updates with in xmb, trophies, and finally home soon. They are giving out a lot of betas, making deals still need A PRICE CUT THOUGH.
"like WKC which will crush all JRPGS on the xbox 360, except SO4 maybe" ahh more fortune telling lies.
Good thing theres like 100 star ocean fans on xbox, that games sales are going to be so good let me tell you. Honestly this is were next gen gaming has failed, its ok for games to go multiplat cause everyone gets it, but when you have a game thats been on 1 system and then you switch it to another its dumb.
Roukuko I didn't know the SNES, PS1, GBC, and PS2 were all 1 system. Oh right the Star Ocean franchise is found on a few consoles!
hand helds will always get spinoffs but im glad you didnt add the 2 psp handheld games on that list. So that 4 games for sony 2 for nintendo and 0 for xbox but so4 is on xbox only you just made my point for me. This is also why se is fail this gen there putting rpgs on xbox when it has no fanbase, they need to make rpgs on the wii anime style or whatever and ps3 that has most of se fanbase if not there games will be like IU 240k sold worldwide.
Well PlayStation didn't have the fanbase when they first came around with the PS1 why wouldn't the same idea work with the Xbox? Maybe they are releasing IU and Last Remnant first to get interest going who knows.
Square Enix has been rocking the handhelds with great titles this gen. Sorry it takes more than 1 year to make a game for the HD consoles. Level 5 should light a fire up SE butt though. Yet do remember that when FFXIII finally gets released all will be forgiven by these guys. Just remember FFXII was released in 2006 do you honestly think it only takes 2 years to get a full RPG game developed by Final Fantasy standards?
I agree with you that once the game releases all will be forgiven. I think people are still a bit upset at Square-Enix for dropping exclusivity. And there was a 4 year gap between XI and XII.
the put FFXII on the 360
How is wanting to make a profit loosing it? It's not like you're going to miss out on anything because a few more gamers get to enjoy the title.
However I think the more damaging part of that deal was that them not releasing the NA version until they get the 360 port done. I'm sure they could get the localization done before starting to port the game to the 360. By the time it comes out I'm probably not gonna be interested.
you mean ps3 people lost it when they released ffxiii on the 360. SE were gods and then bam you lost the exclusive and now they are being questioned as failures. its not surprising and that is the response i expect from the children that own the ps3.
I'm already tired of waiting for FFXIII and yet I know it will only be like 18 months before we get the NA verison. Forget that, I'll import it straight from japan when it comes out. strange how SE is making games for japan (SO4, last remnant etc) but no FF13 japan? I'm sure this is actually a trick so that when they consider the xbox has enough units sold in japan thanks to its exclusivities, they'll announce japanese version to boost hype and sales just to prove in sony's face that the PS3 is an obsolete console. I'll keep that theory in mind but I'll also wait how WKC fares.
lol I don't understand where I sound like a child with a ps3. I said the same thing in that PS3 owners didn't like it. But I got over it in a couple days cause there are other games, I just didn't want to wait such a long time for this. If a big 360 game was done but was delayed for 1 year to 18 months just cause they wanted to release with the PS3 wouldn't you be pissed? Its not like this was THE game for me, it might have been for others though. In a way I kinda applaud MS because they'll make sure they get all these games on their platform, and it makes me mad that it seems like Sony doesn't care sometimes. But that doesn't mean I agree with how MS get those exclusives. I don't think SE is going down cause of this though, it just seems like it hasn't released a killer RPG or a new IP in a long time. Although I know the Last Remnant is coming out and hopefully it will be great.
They were rather disappointing this year. I was all hyped up for some great new titles, and... nothing. Hopefully they have some good things in production, though.
Square-Enix & Namco Bandai have been lacking in quality for a long time now. There games are pretty much garbage on consoles (their handheld games seem ok though or at least better than the garbage console games they push out). The only real RPG developers to look forward to is Level 5 & Atlus.
Not really , Tales of Symphonia on GC was a really great title and it was pretty much well received and its by far one of the best game they've made. And tales of vesperia is a good title it's self and form were im standing FF12 was a good title also not any close of being Garbage Im of to another thread with my MAX SPEED!!!
I'm going to give you a bubble just because your "max speed" signature makes me laugh every time. Plus I agree that 12 was by no means a bad FF. It was just good for a different reason than previous FFs. I felt that 12 was really lacking on the story and character front, which is generally what I love about FFs. That being said, the way they managed to eliminate random encounters and introduced the "hunting" sidequests was simply amazing.
In the head that is Can I see some gameplay video now other than CG trailers? I've had enough of those since last gen. Whether it'd be White Knight Chronicles or any other JRPGs without the SE tag, it'd be amusing to see FFXIII getting pushed back after one of those JRPGs are released.
ONCE THE GAMES ARE OUT U WILL BUY IT.. PERIOD... NAMCOBANDAI.. loosing ... what a joke those guys are making hot cash like it was raining .. SE.. u wait and see how FF will blow shyt out of the water.. wait for the others too... tut tut ttut.. SE AND NAMCOBANDAI.. loosing .. .... what a joke.. NEXT TREAD. PLEASE.. this a a rubbish topic..
Square Enix sucks. Squaresoft rocked.
lets wait and see how FFXIII and Versus progress before jumping to any conclusions. I've no doubt WKC will be great, but to disregard SE off hand is foolish.
sorry Sony fanboys, i will correct my post to match your 'agree criteria'. WKC will destroy SE single handedly as its PS3 excluive whereas FFXIII is coming out on the 360 as well so it will suck. Get over the fact that FFXIII is no longer PS3 exclusive, some people make it seem like they walked into their kitchen at home to find the president of SE bending their mother over the counter. This is a business, money talks.
Is it their numbers? or that site overall? I'm confused.
square-enix lost it after the ps1 era, they are complete garbage
I liked FFX a lot but not as much as the previous ones. First, the music wasn't as good as it used to be. Then, there was no open world the way it was in pretty much every FF before even though the ones before were previous gen consoles. I wasn't very interested in FFXI as it was a hurdle to get my PS2 online back then (broadband was barely taking off and still I hate cables, that's why I love my PS3's, Wii's and 360's wi-fi connections), so I got it for my PC but the garbage ATI card lacked the proper drivers so I lost it and fortunately didn't pay a monthly fee (but sadly I still have my FFXI box gathering dust because EB Games didn't take used FFXI boxes back then). I do have FFXII but I've been too busy to play it, but I also heard it annoyed a lot of people with its gambit system which allowed the game to masturbate (you just had to watch), but I'm still dying to play it; still, I didn't fall in love with the Demo that came with Dragon Quest 8 which rules. Anyway, the reason PS3 fans like me are pissed off with 360s port is not just because it delayed the game, but because now it won't take advantage of Blu-ray, which means the game is unlikely to return to its open world roots when it first started. If 360 had a 60GB 4-layered HD-DVD reader out of the box, I'd be fine with it. I read a rumor that FF Versus is indeed returning to that game model, and if that happens I'll be very happy. That does make a lot of sense if the game remains exclusive, as a 50GB world that can't be cut in parts (several discs) would be absolutely awesome. Oh, and please, don't label me a fanboy, as I would be a 360 fan and not a PS3 fan if it was the Xbox the one that had the most storage on its discs and was the better media center, especially if the differences in the discs were as big as the one between BD and DVD.
Gotta love how fast you guys turn on one of your favorite developers. I wonder how PS3 fans will act if Konami ever ports MGS4 or if Level 5 ever ports WKC.
I wouldn't expect idiots who know nothing about jrpgs to understand where real jrpg fans are coming from. The idiots who are commenting on this an just saying over an over that people crying because square went mulit platform are the same ones. That are not gonna buy any jrpgs or this FFXIII to start with an are just here to annoy people. They are also the same people that love WRPGS/FPS games an are the first to hell out gears of war is gonna be the most awsome sauce on the planet. An the only reason your even here is to scream all of the above. Real jrpg fans understand what is really going an the repercussions that come with more then just the multi platform announcement of FFXIII. I will happily point our what your obviously un trained hears should hear. UI 360 exclusive although now it doesn't really matter is it calling it a solid rpg would be a compliment. Then SO4 announced currently for the 360 after it did quite well with SO3 on ps2 even though it still wasn't honestly that good so no major reaction there. An after actually having a look at game play its not looking so good for a game that is around the corner. Then one of the biggest issues comes around with The Last Remnant. From SquareEnix's mouth for the duration of their development promised over an over an over that The Last Remnant would launceh on all platforms simultaneously. An then the come out with the announcement all of a sudden that it will be on the 360 first with no date given for the PS3. Then think of what they said an I dare you to ask wtf I'm pissed. Also at the time they gave no reason to why. An even when they did they claimed that SE of all people can't fix some minor issue with the Unreal Engine an ps3 with all the help they have an could have gotten in months time. I smell bs on that account an until they give full details as to exactly what could take months for them to fix it will remain bs. An now we get to what seems to be the favorite ammo of these comments FFXIII particularly it going multi platform. Lets get past the bs that everyone is still upset on the plain grounds that FFXIII went multi platform. Number one for people who are not new to this know everything Final Fantasy since 7 that wasn't 7 8 an 10 wasn't the best. An X-2 please XI doesn't even count an XII should be erased from history along with X-2. Then it comes down to knowing how long it takes Square to even put out something remotely good an on top of that they are trying to make like ten games at once. Take all that into account an you can only realize how much longer this game could take do to the multi platform announcement. An on top of that how badly they failed with XII you will realize the only people that the people who know what they are talking about. Were excited for the announcement of the game period but we just didn't express how cautious we were to it because people that know wouldn't need that info. Take away from SquareEnix or from any developer single console concentration equals game degrade in one aspect or another. Which is evident in the amount of trade in after people got over the initial look at the pretty an alright story. Case in point if you play haven't been involved in the history of Square or rpgs period then you shouldn't be commenting on here period.
