FFIX isn't my favorite in the series, but it's a horribly underrated game imo! Such a great story, characters, and world.
The same could be said of any interest or hobby though. Some people collect stamps, or teapots, or wrestling memorabilia. It might seem useless and pointless to most people, but the collectors get enjoyment out of it. Hell, many people think playing video games is a pointless past-time and a waste of money, but I'm sure most of us on N4G would disagree with that!
To be fair, you can't really tell what a character will be like based off a single image. Hell, just look at Aerith from FFVII. She is a feminine girl wearing a pink dress, with a pink bow in her hair, who sells flowers and cares for her elderly mother. Based solely off her appearance, that doesn't exactly scream "strong heroine" yet she is one of the strongest, bravest, and most memorable characters in the whole FF series.
Who knows, Luna might end up bein...
" Even you must admit that they dancing the same choreography as everyone else is at least a little over the top. Or should we believe that Squall actually took dance lessons? "
I don't think it's over the top. Considering its mentioned the Garden has those graduation dances every year, it's entirely possible the students have to take dance lessons for that exact reason. It would also come in handy if they are ever on a mission that required them to danc...
Can't believe it's almost 15 years since FFX was released. Suddenly I feel old...
I hope we get a psychical copy, but I'll settle for a digital release if it's the only option. I'm just happy we're getting this game in the West. After FF4, I was worried we'd never see a main Fatal Frame game localized again.
I'm surprised they aren't remaking RE2 and RE3 as one game. They're both set around the same timeframe and feel so similar they might as well be two parts of one game.
I don't really care about the game one way or the other. I just noticed there weren't many reviews on N4G even though the game came out recently, so I thought I'd post some. I'd happily post the positive reviews too, but there aren't many.
It's true that Shenmue is a niche title. But FFVII definitely isn't. It sells well every time it is re-released, and most modern gamers are at least familiar with the characters from popular culture and spin-off titles (Crisis Core, Dissidia, Kingdom Hearts, etc)
I sometimes wonder if Edea was originally supposed to be the main villain, but Square changed their mind during development when they realized it would be too dark for Squall and Co. to kill the woman who raised them. It seemed odd to give Edea such a detailed backstory that directly links her to the main characters...only for it to never really be utilized later on in the game. And Ultimecia's introduction at the end of disc 2 is so sudden and out-of-the-blue that it's almost bizarre...
I often wonder if Squaresoft ran out of time while making FFVIII and had to rush the ending, because disc 4 seems so short and hurried compared to the rest of the game.
I loved the design of Ultimecia's castle, but it would have been cool to see what the world was like after Time Compression. Having all the towns blocked off was such a cop-out. I would have loved to see different time periods warped and mashed together into one setting (e.g. seeing Sorcerer Hyne's tim...
For me, the most important thing isn't whether its ATB system or action-oriented. I'm more worried about whether or not we'll be able to control more than one character. I don't want to be stuck playing just Cloud in battles.
I love Tifa's theme. It's easily one of my favorite tracks in the entire game. Very underrated.
I'd say that Woolly World looks more like an updated version of Yoshi's Story (which came out in the 90s) than LittleBigPlanet, except the levels are made of wool instead of stitched-together patches of material.
That was my first thought too. I thought this was confirmed to be fake o_O
I hope you're right. It seems like a risky move to rely on a video game kickstarter for exposure, rather than aiming for a bigger event/foundation that has a better chance of reaching a broader audience.

Yep, Arkham Knight is more like AC than AA. It has a similar open world, and much of the same sort of filler. So if you didn't like AC, you probably won't like Arkham Knight.
Since every FF game has a different story, different character, and is set in a different universe, then you can start with pretty much any game in the series.
If you don't mind playing a retro game with outdated graphics, random battles, a slow beginning, and some odd translation issues, then I'd definitely recommend playing FFVII first. It still holds up as an amazing RPG with memorable characters, a great story, and an interesting world. It's largely considere...
