It’s amazing how they were able to implement most if not all the feedback gathered from Episode Duscae! We’re even getting a new demo before the release! I cannot wait for the March event!

Well, from a very general historical/art context, a "field of swords driven into the earth" generally symbolizes a battle that has resulted in many deaths, as the swords, once held by the warriors in question, are considered makeshift grave markers for the fallen. Of course, the more densely packed the weapons, the Read more

Yeahhhhh.... that Etro bit was basically covered by Lightning in XIII-2 and LR. Her entire role in LR was to guide expiring souls as the world itself was counting down its last days. It would be interesting if Noctis still has this same role - and considering that XIII, VS XIII and Type 0 were all meant to be Read more

If it's simplicity, then Final Fantasy IX is just as accessible, if not more so. I'd also argue that there's way more character development in IX than in VI. In fact I'd say that VI had very weak character development, since every character has his own story and there isn't much interconnection between characters. The Read more

I'll be up front and say that I still treasure FFVI, but the "excessive melodrama" thing struck a chord with me. Out of the "good" examples of FF you've listed above, I feel a lot of them kind of share a characteristic in that they cover a relatively simple plot with some generally redundant character arcs. FFIV and Read more

I have all the respect in the world for Yoshida and he DOES have the right of it, and I hope to see him go far in the company. He will if Square knows what's good for them. But Nojima is definitely not his adversary. That would be Motomu Toriyama and Yoshinori Kitase.

I will fight alongside you, brother, for we must spread the word of Final Fantasy IX.

Final Fantasy 7's plot is no more or less convoluted than part 6's. The former just received a very rough translation. Something which I sorely hope Square-Enix will address with the PlayStation 4 re-release. (If they haven't already with the Steam re-release.) Read more

Fabula Nova Crystallis was conceived in three parts. Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Agito XIII for PSP became Type-0, Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

In a fragmented marketplace if you're an established property such as Final Fantasy you tend to wish to play to your strengths. This tends to be the case due to the fact change is oftentimes risky. With game development costing as much as they do now risk is an amazingly bad thing and with a giant franchise like Read more

Now that you mention it, JRPGs do seem to be getting on the obtuse side lately, especially when it comes to Final Fantasy. It seems some of them confuse elaborate with convoluted at times by adding too much details for the audience to process, instead of twisting something unique with as little additional detail to Read more

That interview just made me very sad for gaming's future in Japan.
