    It's ok, you've played this at least 10 times before, you aren't missing anything. At all.

    Erm, Twin Twist?

    Where have you played this before? The entire battle system's being revamped, and hyped as an "action-based battle system". From that screenshot, I'm seeing free-roaming pseudo-realtime, with the ability to perform multiple attacks per "turn", all in a drop-dead gorgeous package.

    Not impressed. I really think it is sad that final fantasy is going away from the traditional turn based game style. Oh well. Can't make everyone happy I guess.

    So it's like Diablo, except prettier. And without a mouse. :wink: 

    Whatever. KH I was a train wreck ... so much so that I've skipped the sequel.

    Of all action RPG's, why Diablo? If anything, with that timer system, it'd probably be closer to Guild Wars. Which, judging by the video, is so far off base that you're not even in the same ballpark..

    And I think most people would disagree with KH1's "trainwreck" status...

    Because I said it as a joke, mostly.

    All the same, I'm finding it really hard to get excited about any Final Fantasy sequel nowadays. Plus, even if I did care, it's shipping on a system I can't afford. (shrug)

    Perhaps. I thought the platforming was abysmal, the gummi ship bits painful, and the fighting totally mediocre (yay button mashing!) The plot and fan service were kind of interesting, but not enough to make me want to finish it.

    I lost interest in the FF series after FFX, when the series became more about eye-candy than good gaming and storytelling.

    Is FF still about girly pop-bands? Ugh.

    I agree with the above sentiments, FF used to be THE premier RPG, now it's just a girly anime with zero substance.

    Those screens LOOK awesome, however. For $600, they better.

    FFXI blew, FFXII looks to suck, and it's going to take more than an uninteresting battle system and a $600 system to get me to play this one.

    For the moment, pass.

    Outstanding.

    The bad news:
    $600 for PS3

    I think I'll make do with the Wii.

    Where's my FF VI-2 and FF IX-2?

    Nice that they have a female lead though.

    I loved 6 when it came out (SNES 3), and I played 7 because I loved 6, and 7 was even better, still my most favorite game ever made... Everything since 7 has been rather worthless. All kid friendly birds and fairies stuff with characters I can't grow to like. Final Fantasy has gone from being great stuff to worthless shit. Where did the quality stuff go?

    Wake me when someone at Square grasps the concept of free roaming in an RPG. Till then, Bethesda & Bioware will continue to get my RPG dollars.

    I'm just waiting to see where Suikoden, Silent Hill, and Rot3K lands. At this point Square isn't a selling point for me. It's pretty sad, really. My first RPG was Dragon Warrior, and my second was Final Fantasy. Seeing Square Enix turn into a company that spits out piss-ass games is like watching the girl you grew up with and always thought was hot get married to a jerk, crap out five kids, and just turn.. bleh. And this goes for Square as well as Enix. I still have hope for VP2 though. :(
