A few hours into FFXIII now. I have seen the Paradigm Shifts. I have tinkered with the Crystarium. I completely "get" what they were trying to accomplish with this game, and I say they succeeded and then some! (More on that later.)

I would absolutely HATE to be a developer in this day and age!

In one breath, little whining-bitch gamers scream: "JRPG's aren't doing anything new! WAAAAH!" Then FFXIII comes out and in the very next breath: "What did they do to my Final Fantasy game? It's nothing like the OLD ones! WAAAAH!"

I'm totally lovin' the Final Fantasy XIII impressions guys. I soooooo can't wait to scoop up a copy this weekend. Man these next few days are going to be agonising.

Woah. That Arc gif looks freakin' wicked. I'm really looking forward to seeing more on that thing.

There was no way in HELL they were going to be able to make this game as quick paced and engaging as it is and still give the player control over each and every character. Get over it!

They effectively removed the boredom from the game by eliminating the expansive towns and the need to talk to each and every person you come across. Thank God!

The Linear game keeps you focused on the Story. Keeps you pointing in the direction of your next goal. Urges you ahead to play just a bit more, just a bit more. There are no pointless breaks in the game and that's a very good thing. It is paced like an incredible action game but the battles are still RPG battles.

Even though you are STILL just choosing menu options like you do in every other rpg out there, your decisions need to be quick and efficient. You have to think of your whole party as the "character" you control. Changing Paradigms changes their actions on the fly. You need to keep up with what's going on with THEM while still considering Enemies weaknesses while making quick decisions about your strategy all at the same time. It's hard to describe, but it works WELL, and, again, it keeps you engaged.

One of the best ideas this game has is a "The Story so Far..." kind of option in your Menu. It splits the game into chapters and spells out the story in plain text so you can review events, so as not to get lost. You can read what has just happened. You can look up Monsters. Locations. Character Bios. You get a huge Reference Guide so you can actually keep track and almost understand what's going on in the story! This is BY FAR one of the best things they have ever introduced to this series! Final Fantasy ALWAYS tries to tell a story but whether by poor translation or by losing track of all the volumes of story-line elements they tend to throw at you, it often gets lost along the way, or misunderstood entirely after the game is said and done. Now each and every time you load the game you are reminded where you are and what you should be doing and you are thrown right back into the fray! FINALLY! GREAT JOB, SQUARE!

^ Despite the widely varying reviews, THIS game's STORY may be the most memorable of all FF games due to the STRONG sense of Focus and the Well-done recaps! Very impressed!

Even though you are STILL just choosing menu options like you do in every other rpg out there, your decisions need to be quick and efficient. You have to think of your whole party as the "character" you control. Changing Paradigms changes their actions on the fly. You need to keep up with what's going on with THEM while still considering Enemies weaknesses while making quick decisions about your strategy all at the same time. It's hard to describe, but it works WELL, and, again, it keeps you engaged.

One of the best ideas this game has is a "The Story so Far..." kind of option in your Menu. It splits the game into chapters and spells out the story in plain text so you can review events, so as not to get lost. You can read what has just happened. You can look up Monsters. Locations. Character Bios. You get a huge Reference Guide so you can actually keep track and almost understand what's going on in the story! This is BY FAR one of the best things they have ever introduced to this series! Final Fantasy ALWAYS tries to tell a story but whether by poor translation or by losing track of all the volumes of story-line elements they tend to throw at you, it often gets lost along the way, or misunderstood entirely after the game is said and done. Now each and every time you load the game you are reminded where you are and what you should be doing and you are thrown right back into the fray! FINALLY! GREAT JOB, SQUARE!

^ Despite the widely varying reviews, THIS game's STORY may be the most memorable of all FF games due to the STRONG sense of Focus and the Well-done recaps! Very impressed!

Leo is like a dude in the corner talking to himself. Who are you arguing against? Nyaa

I LOVE the database, like you said it makes keeping track of the story so much easier. If FFXII had that I would probably have finished it using Rags save file but I havn't cause I forgot everything in the story.

^ All the people bitching and moaning about the "bad" points! Not necessarily here; just gamers in general.

Fucking English people, why must you be such naggers?!

I had to work overtime to satisfy their nagging.

Why GG, explain it to me?

 Dude, you're new in the job, be happy to work overtime to satisfy your English superiors.

Dvader when are you gonna trade in some old games and get a 360?! Fuckin thing's been out for 5 years now man...

I don't sell old games.


Why? You can just download them all eventually anyway. How many do you really play? DO IT!!!


Vader is like an old fart, clinging to his old-ass stuff. LOL

 

LOL Methinks I have become an old fart too. I've always traded things in regularly before to get new games but for over a year now I have been hanging onto my games building a collection and you know what it feels pretty damn good. Now granted I'd likely be playing Final Fantasy XIII right now and have a PS3 but the wait for FFXIII is only a few days and I'll have a PS3 soon enough so it's not too bad.

 Yakuza 4 got a 38.  Yay!  BBC2 34, that's surprising given the source.

As for trading in game it makes NO SENSE. If you are going to finish a game and give it away that is called renting! It is so much cheaper to just rent the game. If I buy a game I BUY a game, it's mine, FOREVER.

That arc gif looks ordinary to me. Why are they going nuts over it? It doesn't show anything we haven't seen before in other arc videos, and it doesn't show any potential lag since you're not seeing the players themselves but only their in-game representation from the camera footage, which could obviously have the same amount of lag. There's nothing impressive about rotation, the remote without M+ can tell that exactly as seen by the cursor's functions in the Wii menu or wherever (it doesn't seem to be sensor bar based since you can take it "off screen" rotate it, get it back "in screen" and it will be tilted correctly). Show us a real game already, see how useful full 1:1 is there and how it handles players stabbing themselves, or having a character (or just his arms if it's first person) animating properly handling the sword, not just the sword itself moving around in blank space or over the player's footage. They're that close to release (or are they?) and they're still showing us live-move style tech demos?

That lonely1 dude on GAF knows what he's talking about and he's explaining it to them (especially the pointer stuff and they still don't get it) and yet they're telling him all "calm down" as if he said anything outrageous when it's other people calling others fanboys and wiitards and shit... I guess maybe they'll ban him too, lol?

 Are you trying to win the "Most Cogent and Well Assembled Posts" Award for 2010?  Stop making so much sense.
