GI: “We assembled a panel of RPG experts to discuss the highs and lows of what we saw from Square Enix's new title!”
everything looked great aside from graphics and since it's a jrpg that's pretty low on level of importance to me
A fantasy setting, a new combat engine, better graphics, a memorable cast of characters, so far i haven't seen any of this from the released trailer... sadly i see this project has probably been rushed and so far not excited at all.
Medieval fantasy is a fantasy setting. How could you tell the combat engine wasn't new or not they only showed a small section of it. I disagree that the characters aren't memorable so far. I don't think you know if it's being rushed or not tbh you're probably guessing again. so far to me the only thing you have right is that you're not excited but I think that's more to do with no pretty graphics and your need for sci fi tech in final fantasy
@phoenix. Medieval is a time period, the setting is not fantasy. They are however adding fantasy elements into it of course, but that’s different. I actually really liked 10-13s settings. They were more original.
Fantasy races. Magic being an active part of the world. No large scale, cinematic, battles you don't really play a part in or your "part" is heavily scripted.
I want a real fantasy: mystical lands, diverse and interesting races, monsters, magic....Not some pseudo western RPG with no party system. Looking like or another mainline FF I'm skipping. FF15 was not good.
I didn't buy FF15 because I really didn't like the combat in the demo and I was hearing that not only was the story not good it was actually all over the shop and unfinished. So fun, tactical combat and a great story are what I'm looking for.
That was a terrible discussion. Did any of those guys ever play any FF game before FF12? High fantasy medieval setting was the series staple until FF6. FF9 and FF12 went back to the old formula. And FF12 is part of the Tactics universe anyway. I agree the graphics weren't groundbreaking but my priority is to have a good game with good gameplay. The combat looks good but still disappointing they went for a full-action approach despite the success of FF7R's combat which is a hybrid of old and modern. I can live with it, if the story and world is great. The lack of female characters is probably due to the lack of characters at all. I think we've only seen 2-3 important characters max in the trailer with the rest being unimportant or typical NPCs. We have no idea if you only play as a single character or if there will be a party of characters, so it's possible there will be female characters there. Really, I'm just glad that this first reveal trailer showed off actual in-game content of cutscenes AND gameplay. Normally, we get a CG reveal, then some cutscene trailer a year later than gameplay a year after that.
