The recent Batman Begin relative to Keaton through Clooney, did a LOT to ground the franchise in truth. The characters were lifelike than everything that came before and the theme was something worthy of discussion. That can't be said for any FF post VI, and arguably VII, and since then the series has been haunted by story or characterization that can only be matched by student films.
Its come to this? For many this was the last chance SE had to prove to us that there was still hope. That when we open up a Square game again it would be something innovating and captivating with a touching story...but now...God I can't even recognize them...I pray Nomura just says fuck it, leaves and opens his own studio or something. His talents seemed to be wasted...my God square your fans have been begging for 2 things constantly this gen. And I mean literally begging, we've asked for a FFVII remake and VSXIII to be released...Christ you've royally failed on both accounts.
I hope they go belly under..Square-Enix is just a bastardization of what SquareSoft stood for.....Quality.
Rename it XV and make it multi plat, just get the fucking game out assholes! :D
I don't get the hate.
People hate the FFXIII saga. Okay, so you hate a whole company based on one project? People hated FF8 and Square Soft didn't get this kind of hate. They just moved on and played FFIX.
It makes no sense to me. You got "The World Ends with You" and "Kingdom Hearts", both great series but people are so hung up on FFXIII. They were so hung up on FFXIII that these same people wouldn't even give FFXIII-2 a chance, they stamped "lame" on the game based on some trailers without even playing it!
You hate FFXIII, that's fine. How much more bashing must I read every time I look at a Square Enix Final Fantasy thread? You hate it, it sucks, WE GET IT ALREADY!
Maybe Square is saving it for PS4/Xbox720.
I just do not understand why people are jumping on the "Burn Square Enix" bandwagon.
Wonder why people are not giving, Final Fantasy XIII-2 a chance now?. We are literally cautious with what they're selling now, XIII-2 could be good or it could be bad but people won't risk(literally), investing their time and money on a game that could potentially suck for them(I never though I'd see the day that I would say this about Square!). Versus XIII on the other hand looks very promising, the small teasers we've seen paint a game that will potentially be fun, the characters also look very appealing and the maps are sizable(Let's not forget that it's not Square Enix's internal studio working on it but Nomura), hence the hype/hopes/ whatever you want to call it.
I apologize, but if that's the case, then gamers should start hating the gaming industry, not just bashing one developer.
I can name plenty of developers not living up to hype or not pleasing their fans.
Well, I'll leave it at that so this thread won't turn into a "bash game developers/industry" thread.
I'm pissed off with SE because they are churning out fucking bullshit these days. Everything after FFX was a pile of corn infested shit and they just continue on this path of cluelessness. Seriously, if they are going to release FFXIII-3 and cancel this game then it shows just how far they have fallen. As Fon said, they are releasing KH games on various handhelds but no console versions? if they don't make some ultimate HD collection then that's another IP that they have fucked with. How stupid can they be to scatter a franchise across all these mediums making any kind of consistency or plot following impossible. Bunch of fucking incompetent clueless assholes. They are so out of touch with gaming today it's unreal, and for me, Versus was their ONLY saving grace.
I also can't stand Capcom. They have done to Resident Evil what SE have done to FF, but Capcom have the scummy bastard tendency to release a million fucking versions of their fighting games and put completed DLC on the disc.
But yeah, SE has lost the plot, like some wise majestic king who one day stripped down naked and rolled around in pig shit. :D
1. All we have seen was the same few minutes of FMV of people brooding and posing.
2. Some off cam gameplay of a dude fighting a giant dog monster in the city with ok looking but bland graphics.
If it wasn't called FF versus and a ps3 exclusive I wouldn't have been excited.
As for this rumor, I don't buy it. I'll wait to hear an official statement from Square about this. If it is canceled, then that sucks, really been looking forward to it. I'll still finish out the Kingdom Hearts series regardless. We still have TGS to see what's happening.
Well simply put...
That SUCKS! (if true)
And while there are other companies that practice their own bullshit in the video game industry, like Capcom and Activision, it has nothing to do with the direction Square Enix wants to take with the franchise.
