Yoichi Wada announces that Final Fantasy XIV has damaged the Final Fantasy series and announces their plans to re-make the game from scratch.
Just scrap the game and make a full new final fantasy game in the main series but go back to final fantasy roots. What's the point in spending more money on this? Let the PC users keep playing if they choose to and just move on.
exactly they should drop this game altogether not alot of people want a mmorpg ff anyway make me a new ff similar to ff7 and were all set
You're missing the point here. If they were to create a game from scrap it would be more expensive than to fix the things wrong with this game and it would also take much longer.
If they're remaking this game from scratch that means its going to cost a ton of money. Perhaps not as much as a new game entirely but its still going to be very expensive. Might as well put those resources into something else entirely. I originally thought they were just going to go in and fix the things that were wrong, not completely go back to square one (no pun intended) and start over. Now that is a waste of time.
The thing is they ARE NOT remaking FFXIV from scratch. They are making incredibly drastic changes. Core systems that were touted as the main focus of the game when it first came out have been removed or changed to a very large degree. When looking at it from that perspective it's as if they are re making it however they really are only changing the core systems which is far cheaper and easier then remaking every single little thing from the ground up. The title this article uses is EXTREMELY misleading. It may be true that Wada said they are remaking the game but it was taken out of context and what he meant was they are redoing and building entirely new and different core systems within the game. Not rebuilding it from the ground up.
Reibooi knows what he's talking about. It's tweeks, and changes to the core operating system of the game that makes this a "remaking from scratch" As well as the title of the article bring ridiculously misleading.
"Yoichi Wada announces that Final Fantasy XIV has damaged the Final Fantasy series" So has most of SE undertakings this gen...what are you going to do about all those other stinkers?
i think ff13 damaged the final fantasy brand more than ff14. i only know few ppl who actually played ff14. most of them just read about ff14. and dont care for it. its not like they cared about ff14 to begin with. but the letdown was ff13 which many gamers did played and most of them was disappointed. these gamers probably dont care about ff13-2 or 14. rather ffv13. the whole idea behind ff14 was to compete against WoW .... or so wada said.
I think they should just focus the majority of their development staff on making sure Versus XIII is as great a game as possible, regardless of whether or not they plan to keep it exclusive to PS3 or multi-platform.
Quit while your ahead... or behind. Whatever, just quit.
The problem is, we know Square Enix can make good games; they have just strayed from the path.
ya cause ff console series are so much better, please...i rather play ff xiv anytime rather than playing some shit like ff13 again. XIV is great but only for the hardcore non noob players, cause it doesnt hold your hand at all.. Gamers these days, bunch of babies
So they have time to make, and then remake an entire MMO (something very few wanted) but dont have time to remake games that people are desperately wanting? Good choices!
I agree but its all about revenue to them. With a good MMO they can charge monthly fees that people will keep paying to play.
Good because the mess they have out now is horrible. They've made some changes but they've got a long way to go. Only reason I still play is because its F2P.
Honestly, although XIV isn't in the best shape, I still find it more entertaining than XIII and XII. SE are making some pretty amazing improvements. Sure these things should have been there since the beginning, but it's better to get them late than never. Most people that complain about it are either judging the game by review scores from last year (before the revamp was even started) or going by what others post online.
they won't remake ff14... it's stupid and a waste of ressources . They 'll remake teh mecanics , the same way the current patches are working and relaunch teh game with updated features . Se won't do anything else ... you don't make an MMO in 1 or 2 years
That is essentially remaking the game. They've added new animations, are revamping the entire landscape, the experience system, quest system, recipes have just been revamped, new special effects, etc. They game is pretty much being made from scratch based on what it needs and what fans are raging about. A lot of the things that haven't been implemented (mail system for instance) haven't been put in because the servers need to be altered for that. That will take time as well. As I mentioned before: A lot of these things should have been in the game in the beginning, but at least in several months MMO fans will have another decent MMO to play.
i agree they are doing that but it's not the start over thing some people in this thread are talking about. IMO they are just finishing an aborted develloppement with the feedback from users . Before they lacked a good director and the landscape was empty .... This is not a remake but just finishing the job...
Why do people still keep on saying scrap the game like we're in January. Go and read how much the game has progressed especially with the new patch coming.
I know, this is old news and the game has been coming along, I for one will be giving it a try when it releases on PS3.
An online game is not needed Go back to the console series, the main series. Go back to your roots SQUARESOFT, and make an amazing game like u used to Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX, X all amazing games then after that u just went down hill I dont get it. I would love for a new Final Fantasy, 15 I guess, to be like Final Fantasy IX, I enjoyed that game from beginning to end, a complete masterpiece.
don't know im happy i get to play a ff cause i don't have a console but they need to fix their problems
Fixing the problems with FFXIV is a better solution then just scraping a game thats almost complete/a broken game and starting from scratch. They could make FFXIV great by fixing the problems that the game does have. Also it would take less time and cost less for them.
agree with your statement that it would be best for them to fix it,hopefully pc/ps3 guys get to play against each other and with on pvp,party that would be cool
That would be cool, I myself havnt played FFXIV but it looked good. I wonder if the PS3 version will have a subscription fee
