Motomu Toriyama Answers a few questions on The upcoming sequel Final Fantasy XIII-2. Seems like it will Be better but this is only the beginning.
Itd be cool if they make the gameplay like KH, just like VS 13. Its much more appealing as it makes you feel like youre in the battle. Also it adds a bit of realism to it since youre not just standing and waiting for your turn to attack.
lol wtf? Turn-based/ATB gameplay has got nothing to do with realism. It's called having a gameplay based on strategy.
Alright so what do battles look like in real life? Do people stand next to each other and wait to attack? Or Do people run around on the battle field attacking on their own free will with nothing holding them back (with the exception of orders from the higher ups)?
Lol at my disagrees for the above comment. Didn't know you guys were from the past so your excused. What time are you from? like the 1800s? Since your new to everything we got these things called computers, you know thats the thing you used to read my comment and disagree due to a lack of knowledge of how today's battles are fought. =)
@ rezzah No... dude... just stop while you can. Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts will never have a sense of realism despite how they are played. The words you're looking for are "being played in real time". Any time someone is able to summon a monster or shoot lightning out of their finger tips has lost any sense of realism. That's why you're getting disagrees. It's called Final "Fantasy" for a reason. Not Final Reality.
@rezzah: The disagree's are there 'cause of several reasons. 1. There are people that prefer turn based/ATB/strategic combat, it makes them think and thinking isn't that terrible if you actually try. 2. You've picked probably the nerdiest and lamest way to explain how people fight in real life and use it as your argument about realistic combat system. 3. You want realistic combat from strategic kind of genre. There's a tetris-like game with physics which is more realistic, but most of us still prefer good old Tetris. 4. You care about disagrees awfully lot. Lesson to take: Because you have an opinion on your own is great, but it doesn't always mean you're right. Are you the guy who wrote this article? http://n4g.com/news/689733/...
@ hay Nope never wrote an article for games. Thx for your input.
KH and versus realism is destroyed by HP bars and antigravity jumping. They still ain't realistic(not that I care) but i would prefare if versus just stays as the only real time one. ATB isn't crap, just FFXIII was very simplified I thought and I hated the Auto battle. Also FFXIII is quite fast pace's compared to just standing there waiting for your turn. In saying this, I hated FFXIII so I dunno. Still though, I don't want another Versus Xiii, I want a differant game, which is why I like Versus so much, because no other FF is like it, it's a mixture of quite a few Square games, so if S-E can just refine FFXiii ATB and not lock it up for over half the game again, it might be alright.
Yea I understand what you mean but I think of it as at least a small step closer, Its obvious they're going to have bars on the screen. As for the anti-gravity jumping, in the world of FF that isnt something new. So in the world of FF it is realism. I just personally like the free control because it like you are actually in the battle.
FFXIII had a terrible set up for it's battle system. The Time Command Bars were cool, but the NPCs didn't feel very helpful and the 'main character dying ends the game' was stupid. The leveling was so simplified it was boring. I never felt like I was growing as a normal RPG does, I felt like I was playing through a corridor action game until I got to the next cutscene. I never fet like I could focus on leveling up aspects of who I was. It was so linear, it made the original Mario Bros look like Fallout 3.
isn't this article a copycat of what was posted yesterday ? same words ..sames pictures , no new info ?
Turn-based battles are pretty dumb if you think too hard about them, but I don't really care because when it comes to gameplay they're a ton of fun. There's certainly more strategy involved. I never got around to playing XIII. I might have to rent it or pick it up when it's cheap, and if this game is good then I'll have to give it a spin. I've been playing a lot of Kingdom Hearts lately and I could go for another FF game if they're not going to make KH3.
"Toriyama stresses Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a new style of RPG he can’t wait to show people. This game has a number of changes including a revised travel system. Every nook and cranny is packed with people, which gives the feeling of a living world." Good, I like this idea.
May still be linear, that's fine though, Linear wasn't a problem, the problem was the lack of life in FFXIII, you had absolutely nothing to do but walk and fight. FFX for example(as another linear FF) had alot of people, temples and Blitzball. Which gave you a break from battles and made it feel more like an RPG.
the problem fore my was the boring battle system damn the game was playing itself and it took too long to kill just normal enemys. soo please SE change the battle system or else im not coming near this game
im lookin forward to seeing new battle style and the fact that they say people are going to be everywhere is a good indication of more townlike places or Gasp actual towns! its pretty obvious this game isnt the cut content from the 1st game since it takes place after and has new characters. im also lookin forward to the darker atmosphere. cant wait to see how this turns out. although im alot more excited versus this game is coming first so im still happy being that i have enjoyed all FF's with the exception of X-2 (tho still got 100 hours in it) and ff12, tho i still beat it, it was my least favorite FF do to its mainn character who wasnt the main character and its super easy gambit system that complimented u for putting ur controller down and watching a the game fight with out u touching the controller
Yeah there will be some improvments but trust me you'll be disspointed...again Of course there going to make it out to be a big deal and thats theres big changes...they want the game to sell.
Again? I wasn't disappointed with FXIII. I'll only be disappointed again if the game is a boring as XII.
Pfft....12 wasn't great but it was more of a Final Fantasy game then 13
robsonmonkey u crazy boy!!! ff12 was bad lol. the as above i stated, the main character wasnt the main character, no one had a signature weapon, the game was an offline mmo, if u did the gambit system right u didnt even have to play. the game would heal, attack, buff and defend all by itself, the characters were ALL horrible in design and character with the exception of baasch. the limit breaks doing them like 50 times in a row to kill a monster was repetitive as F!!!!, I could go on but i wont. to me ff12 was the worst FF game ever
Robsonmonkey just because it was more of a Final fantasy game than 13 doesn't give it any excuse for being boring.
FFXII was actually really good. the only thing i hated was the dungeon with 100+ floors -.-
Im going to let SquareEnix fool me again. I can't help it. Every game I pick up I want it to be the next ChronoTrigger FFVI, Im always dissapointed in some way, but I still do it. DAMN YOU SQUAREENIX...DAMN YOU.
+Bubbles for mention the two best games ever created. And RESPECT.
Chrono Trigger is godly, I doubt it can be recreated.
They remove MP to make the game too hard even with unlimited magic However who care about lighting if she happy or not we care about good story(of course X-2 wasn't) and good gameplay not port from XIII
Judging from that it seems FFXIII-2 won't be the hallway running game XIII is. "This game has a number of changes including a revised travel system. Every nook and cranny is packed with people, which gives the feeling of a living world." Looks like its gonna be like good old times, AWESOME!
Sounds interesting can't wait
I hope theres towns to explore in the Sequel
The whole article is just PR bullshit. Of course they say that it's going to be a better game. Of course they said they made it because the "fans" wanted it. Of course they didn't mention that they knew they can trick people who want every new FF to be just like the old ones into buying a new game. At this point, SE seems to have no shame in showing that they're only in this now for the money. At least before it looked like they cared about the fans.
versus 13 is where its at.
I actually think I'll give this series a second chance. Looks like i'm gonna be playing 13 again though. Gotta finish the game.
Can someone explain me why it's only the ps3 fanboys who think that XIII-1 sucked.I mean all my friends withthe 360 version talked about a great rpg dispite its minor flaws.
