Andriasang: Our hero is a pessimist.
What a joke of an article. It's barely a paragraph
I think it's because the only new info from JUMP magazine was barely a sentence long.
Sometimes there isn't much to a piece of news that interests everyone. Opinions make up the bulk of most articles. IMHO sometimes we are better off with just the facts. That's all this is. The author didn't feel the need to tell us what he thought, thereby leaving that type of thinking up to us. I appreciate the brevity myself. Makes things easier.
he is definitely going to be one of the best characters in the final fantasy universe ...aaand my personal favorite along with Stella of course :3
I think he is going to be more like squall... and, i would add some Tidus.
I actually agree with that. He sounds disillusioned, cocky and pessimistic but this definetly sets the stage for him to be knocked on his ass by his journey and mold him into a stronger and deeper character...Cannot even wait for this game anymore.
This feels more down to earth and less sci-fi than FFXIII. Can some one connect the story for me.
There is a good info in Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
"It's a fantasy based on reality." I like this new modern noir-ish approach that FFvs13 is taking. I don't think there's been a modern FF game before. Final Fantasy has only been Olden, Steampunk or Cyberpunk really.
Noctis is cocky judging from the new trailer. He's not as emo as Cloud.
More like Squall. Cloud was a pretty fun guy in the original game. I wish more people would remember that and not his AC/kH self ;_;
Ha, I keep mentioning this. Cloud was not emo at all in FF7. They changed made him emo in Advent Children.
Noctis is nothing like Squall. Noctis is arrogant. I recall Squall being uncertain of himself.
I don't understand your disagrees, Cloud was the shit in 7 and he was only really emo in advent children because he was mortally ill and still had PTSD.
@ iamtehpwn: I didn't mean Noctis was like Squall. I meant Squall was more "emo" than Cloud. It's disappointing to hear fans refer to Cloud as "emo" because he was so depressing in AC and KH. Especially considering he was a pretty talkative and fun guy in FFVII. I can't imagine AC/KH Cloud saying dopey things like "Lets mosey" and "this fire will turn is into crispy critters!"
At seijoru, People tend to just go around and label cloud as being an "emo" (I hate that word and the fact that society overuses it for every single character feeling a sad emotion...like nobody in the world ever feels sad or goes through something that makes them want to give up) because halfway through the game he gives up on himself since he figures out he's someone elses puppet and his life is sort of meaningless up to that point. People love using that word because it's the popular thing now and it has pretty much become a stupid f'in pop culture reference. But Cloud had so many dimensions to him...as well as squall. He was not "emo" He lost his parents at a young age and everyone he loved got moved to different parts of the world. He was basically abandoned as a kid and if you ever meet someone that has ever been through something like that there is a likely chance that they are messed up emotionally. Some people just never understood how much depth that FF characters have, or didn't want to understand, and that leads to people hating these games because they're not cocky bad ass types you'd find in an fps or something and they don't want to take the time to really figure the story out and learn about the characters.
true... emo = emotional who here is not emotional? they only show those fps character in the span of 1 week, from beginning to the end of the game. So they are portrait as non emotional badass. The FF have backstory and tragedy that occur through out the weeks and months of their adventure. So therefore squall and them acts as such, or when someone dies etc... BUt i think the latter is just that, people are tired of maybe the same character like characters? idk...
Yea but when was the last time we had that kind of character in a ff game? Or jrpg in general for that matter? I think everyone is still latching on the "cloud is emo lets make fun of all characters that are darker than usual" bandwagon. Anyway, a dark, disillusioned type of character will usually be deeper and more interesting, in my opinion anyway
I don't know why but when you first see Noctis and Stella in the trailer it reminds me of the first time Squall saw Rinoa in the white dress at the Garden party.
tbh that's the first thing i thought of as well
Noctis looks like Sasuke imo. It's good that he's cocky and not emo.
lol, I never said I like Naruto. I'm just pointing out what I thought.
noctis looks like gackt http://img144.imageshack.us... http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_w...
GACKT IS IN UR GAME POSIN AS UR NOCTIS http://img248.imageshack.us...
what a coincidence squall was also based on gackt
Oh boy, I sure am getting Luke Von Fabre vibes from this faggy-looking guy. ... @Seijoru But he's basically the same. At least for what I've seen and heard. A probably selfish, cocky, completly annoying prince that will go around thinking he's superior and annoying anyone in existence because HURR I HAEV THA POWAH. And THEN, at the middle of the game, party members tell him how much of a fag he is and leave him. After that he learns the VALUE OF FRIENDSHIP, gets his party back, and saves the world from evil WITH HIS BEST FRIENDS AND HIS LOVE INTEREST. That's my assumption on how it'll roll, anyways.
Hell no, that character caused me to never finish abyss.
Lol hell i hated him in the anime so i didnt bother to touch the game
Ahh.... I hated him in the beginning(but not game), but later luke change! The game was design as such and i loved it!
a person who use the word fag constantly and put an avatar of a guy fucking a bear is the fagest and most disgusting pig on this planet and you know you are right? so gtfo FAG! next time before you comment see you're old fugly face in the mirror first, think, then comment you faggy-looking gay...ptoo!
Umm. I know Ive heard the word before but what's a pessimist? Bubbles for the first answer.
•Someone who, given a choice of outcomes, believes the worst is more likely.
Thank you. I have heard of the word but I had an idea kinda sorta like that but bubbles.
he looks like one of thesimfers from the Italian band Sonohra
I don't think he's a pessimist. It feels like this article was trying to say that he's a gloomy guy who never looks on the bright side of life (MP ftw). If anything, I think Noctis is a nihilist. He rejects what people tell him to believe, choosing to come to his own conclusions. Throughout the latest trailer, Noctis was confronted with many situations his comrades deemed too severe to handle, yet Noctis wasn't concerned with probabilities or likelihoods, but only kicking some bootay. I really hope gamers don't get the wrong impression about Noctis; he's not some wrist-cutting, mopey-whining emo.
OMG HE BLAK HAIR AN STANGE BLAK KLOTHS HE PESEMIST No, sorry, re-watch the damn trailer and listen to how he acts.
he is the utter defonition of BADASS!! http://www.youtube.com/watc... long http://www.youtube.com/watc... short
I dunno. He strikes me more of a realistic fella. He knows not everything in life is perfect and more or less the corrupt people control the world per se. Seriously he just seems to be a down to Earth person.
The price of ffxiii is alreay drop to 15 dollar. I hope I don't repeat the same mistake by buying it the first day again for ffversusxiii.
I hope people can distinguish emo and arrogant. Noctis is clearly not 'emo'. He's arrogant. And I like that. Makes a change if you ask me. I think I'm going to like his character. A lot of people had the assumption that he would be a silent emo whiner, judging from the original trailers we saw. Nomura was right when he said we would be surprised. I didn't expect Noctis to be show sure of himself and so forward lol I'm really liking his character. If i'm honest, he seems extremely realistic. He's got this new power, and is getting ahead of himself with it. But he also as realistic in his opinions on all of the corruptions in the world he lives in.For the record Cloud was not emo at all in Final Fantasy VII. He was in advent children though. But not overly.
Noctis is a Darker Version of CLOUD From FF7!
Noctis is right. But it's not only in his own world. That applies also to the real world. All types of rules set in this real world also are made by fools and idiots.
i believe nomura said Noctis is somewhat modeled after Cloud, or he wants him to be the "new"/like Cloud or something interms of character personality.
Noctis is more bad arse, just wait and see when the real translation comes in hew wont be emo, he just has a huge burden to carry, if you don't like mature complicated games, then your best bet is to stay away from this game, as the meeting between stella and noctis did remind me of ff8, but the story is much better than all of ffxiii so people should stop winging as ff8>>ffxiii
