FFXII Remastered footage here from E3. Looks really good! The turbo mode sounds good, you could increase the speed to 2x or even 4x the normal pace so if you're confident in your gambits you can storm through enemies which should help make any grind go easier.



Next year seems so far away though, especially for a remaster. I think it's because they don't want to distract any sales away from FFXV this holiday season. People can choose not to buy the game if they hear there's a critically acclaimed remastered copy out and it's cheaper. Gonna be a long wait until then!

A trailer from E3 as well for FFXV

I played a little of the original FFXII IZJS game. That one already had the turbo button. I guess it was 2x. Combat was much slower than I remembered even on active and fastest setting on normal speed. Turbo made it too fast! Course, I had no gambits setup at that point, so maybe more doable later. Getting good gambits should also happen faster since I think IZJS expedite getting them to some extent. 4x turbo is new and I don't know if that will be suitable for combat. The intent is to expedite travel.

I do hope they offer the original license board as an option (like FFX HD does with its sphere grids, IIRC) or allow you to reset and change class. I wasn't a fan of having to permanently pick a class for each character and then not knowing if you're imbalanced until much, much later into the game unless you do a lot of research beforehand... That's more hardcore than I'd like.

Is anyone else just kind of not bothered anymore?  :lol:

I feel like I'll play it one day, but I'm not going to rush out and buy it, even if it's one of the few games that might actually be good for PS4!

I'd be very surprised if FFXV is a bad game considering how long it's been in development and each game has a good combat system at it's core. It's the best part about FFXIII. My worry is the story. FFXIII is awful. FFXIII-2 not much better. You have to remember too, this was originally Final Fantasy Versus XIII, tied to the setting and so far as I'm aware it still is.

I saw a ridiculous image where they showed the map size of FFXV and how it completely dwarfs the map size of GTA V and The Witcher 3.



I don't know if the person who made it came to a false conclusion when it comes to scale or if it's true, but if it's the latter I hope they have done enough to make that world interesting. Like with LA Noire or more recently No Mans Sky, it's all well and good making a big open world to traverse in but it's all for naught if you can't interact with it.

Judging my recent preview footage of FFXV, it sounds like the extra release date delay did the game some good. All the optimisation they promised to put in now rather than a day one patch appears to have resolved a lot of the technical issues like popup and framerate that earlier previews were addressing. Getting more excited for the release now as we come closer to it, I just hope the story isn't as terrible as XII's universe.



There's more gameplay footage of XII HD remaster as well, showing off Salikawood and Phon Coast. They actually made it so that the dialog doesn't sound like it was recorded in a tin can. The remastered soundtrack sounds pretty damn nice too.

World of Final Fantasy is getting a demo next week on PS4. I have absolutely no clue what the game even is other than chibi characters I'll be curious to see what the game actually is!

Remember Lara? The lady who did the MMPR theme song in a Pink Ranger costume? Well she also plays piano and did a collabo for Aeris's Theme.

I vote for TOZ as the most gangsta~  :otomerika:
