FFXV Is a Sausage Fest and That's Okay

CCC Says: "Word of God has spoken from on high - Final Fantasy XV is going to be a boys club. Instead of a more well-rounded party, as in previous games, Noctis and his retinue of Ignis, Gladiolus, and Prompto are having something of an extended night out. No girls allowed on this road trip. And you know what? That's absolutely fine.

I know, it may be strange to read that. Especially since it's coming from a female video game journalist. Yet, in the case of FFXV, a man's night out is all right, even though this means it will be the first Final Fantasy since the NES years to exclude the other gender."

We don't know for sure but his "squad" seems guy oriented but there might be characters that come and go.

As long as I connect with the characters (unlike 12 & 13 then I don't mind.

The author is okay with it but I don't care either way as long as it an engaging story.

Cryptcuzz1484d ago

12 was okay, but 13 was a waste of great looking characters that I couldn't connect and want to care for.

Nomura was in charge of 15, so I have high hopes for it, since he is both the designer of the characters and was the director of the game. So I hope Hajime Tabata will carry on with his vision for the characters.

Jubez1871483d ago

Honestly I think 13 had some decent characters. X had awful voice actors and not relatable really at all (unless you've died and come back to life and traveled between parallel universes). XIII's characters actually had to do with some every day struggles.

I think people are a little too blind to the things that FFXIII actually did okay.

morganfell1483d ago

I liked many of the characters in XIII.

I think the writer needs to go take another look at XV before calling it a sausage fest. Even calling it a 6 pack of beenie weenies is pushing it.

Final fantasy became a reverse harem...

I know my sister gonna be all over this.

miyamoto1483d ago

I love Final Fantasy VI and VIII, the twin peaks of the Final Fantasy series with Hironobu Sakaguchi, Yoshitaka Amano, Nobuo Uematsu, and Tetsuya Nomura on board. A great synergistic effort of incredible talents.

But under the new sell out management of ScrewedEnix this FF XV is:

All Show But No Go Style Over Substance game.

Like FF XIII this FF XV has become a sell out shallow representation of Nomura's inability to progress, innovate and narcissistic ego.

I know it when I see it. FF XV is a Frankenstein Monster game assembled from different genres of rpg and action games all jumbled together.

Nomura has ran out of great ideas and is just picking them up from the sidewalks.

ScrewedEnix is dead.

"X had awful voice actors and not relatable really at all"

What? Tidus & Yuna had decent voice actors and i can understand if some people didn't like them. But if you said Auron, Wakka, Lulu, Rikku, and Kimahri are awful than there's something wrong with your ears. Also, all X characters are relatable and more likeable than the flat-boring XIII characters, except Sazh.

@Square Enix

Call the lawyers in and get ready for some law suits on grounds of misogyny.

rambi801484d ago (Edited 1484d ago )

I wonder what they would call it

FF15: Entourage
FF15: One direction

This is how you deal with tropes against women - Write them the [email protected]#K out of the game lol

TongkatAli1484d ago

Anita and her eyebrows wouldn't be able to bear it, puhuhuhuhu.

SteamPowered1484d ago

Judging from some of their haircuts its not a completely masculine journey.

Cryptcuzz1484d ago

Hairdo aside, one guys got a pretty manly -badass car, another one has a huge sword that took out a huge animal with one hit and the main character has a good looking girl that he presumably will hook up with.

Not to mention in one of the earlier cut scenese, he walks downstairs while being shot at without even a flinch and with a sh*t load of swords protecting him.

If anyone can get shot at without flinching, he is above being masculine lol.

SteamPowered1484d ago

He probably didnt want to move too much and mess up his hair ;)
Who the hell packs a hair straightener on a car trip anyways?!

DevilOgreFish1483d ago (Edited 1483d ago )

It's because they're applying anime to realistic looking characters.

Applying anime to real world guys never usually works,

......and with all those dudes in that car

just joking, :)

Cryptcuzz1483d ago

The guys in this game looks fine, some of their hairdo are typical hairdos that I've seen in real life.

Stuff like Dragon Ball hairs is a no no and do not translate well in real life lol.

Now for women is a different story, anime chicks in real life can translate over well, have you seen Jessica Nigri my friend!?

Cryptcuzz1483d ago

Haha that is funny man.
I don't think they use hair straighteners, its the same kind of gel Goku uses I know that, but don't recall the brand :)

The Internet's journalism reaches such lofty highs.

360ICE1484d ago (Edited 1484d ago )

You mean that place where pretty much all journalism takes place these days? Why, yes it does.

Agree with the article, btw. Backstreet Boys needed their own game.

DigitalRaptor1484d ago (Edited 1484d ago )

We've known about this for SO long. Why are all these tidbits of information only being realised by people now?

We all knew Noctis's party would be 4 guys since like 2009. We knew that the gameplay wouldn't be turn based since like 2007. We knew all of this but why is it now BIG news?

It doesn't even matter, since we know there's still going to be some key female characters. The trailer even mentions that "your date is waiting for you" referring to Noctis and Luna, and we already know there's at least 2-3 more key female characters as well. What matters most is that the game is the ambitious sum of its parts that it has been trying to be for the past 8 years.

For those unsure about female characters:
- Stella/Luna (depending on if they are the same person or not: http://img1.wikia.nocookie.... http://img4.wikia.nocookie....
- Black-haired girl: http://img4.wikia.nocookie....
- Female dragoon:

My theory on Stella/Luna is that they are different people.

- Stella is the latin word for star:
- Luna is the latin word for moon.

Cryptcuzz1484d ago

Very informative and insightful my friend, thanks for sharing!

I think Luna and Stella are the same as well, unless they're twin sisters, because there face looks very similar.

Dune_091483d ago

It hasn't been confirmed one way or another how many party members there are. There's also Cor Leonis whom has been shown with the other 4.
