Meanwhile Dems like Dick Durbin are already folding like cheap paper and whining about how we need to get over there being a vote. The political advice of hacks like James Carvill was nothing more than patronizing poison

Maybe he’ll get one Buster that’s him going “ORAORAORAORAORAORAORA!”

It wasn’t; Matsuno himself confirmed that Valendia and Ivalice are NOT in the same universe. The FFT references were just easter eggs

Not even just the character designs, but the overall mood and tone.

That’s what happens when you force a character in halfway through development. And they wonder why Matsuno said “Fuck all y’all, I’m out!”

Not getting that vibe, to be honest. If anything this is what it’s aping: Vagrant Story. Right down to an older protagonist (for Square Enix at least) who has only been seen alone. Two of the characters even seem to be modeled after Vagrant Story characters. Joshua seems to be an homage to Joshua Bardorba while the Read more

Sherlock Holmes’ entire motivation in the original stories was that he solved crimes because he hated being. It’s why when he had nothing to do he’d snort coke.

Zenos is the best villain the franchise has had since Sephiroth himself. Mostly because he’s like if Sephiroth had a manic-depressive younger brother

1) Only extremely rarely 2) not the fucking point. FF has never been big on the whole swords and sorcery tradition. They didn’t take long to ramp up the robots, steampunk, and sci-fi elements.

Exactly; the series has basically had the same exclusionary club running it for the past twenty years. Time for some new perspective

Yeah, maybe pick something other than Dark Souls’ keeps and swamps for the big reveal, guys. Give us a nice forest or two

It’s become incredibly incurious; it has become less daring, less subversive, and has sanded off its rebellious, experimental core, save for FFXIV. The games became toothless

He’s merely the producer, settle down. He’s not leading the game

The first game had you go into a flying fortress and encounter a giant, fuckoff war mech. And airships were as common as cars. The FF series has never been traditional high fantasy, that’s Dragon Quest’s thing. The FF series becoming incurious is why it became so tepid post-VII.
