    Yeah its kind of weird when you put your mind to it regarding FFXII and FFXIII .FFX did have a random laughing scene as well as a few lighthearted moments etc. When it comes to JPRGs I like a good balance when it comes to events when it comes to dark moments as well as light hearted moments in a story/plot.

    That's understandable that you seek out a balance, especially since a good number of them had just that in the past. I do wonder if Western RPG titles having a very serious tone have had an influence on JRPGs over the past few years.

    I'm beginning to think the way voice actors deliver dialogue in Final Fantasy games is very different from what you might see in other RPGs. When Ardyn says, "So, that is how you would end it" sounds like something you would only hear in Final Fantasy. Especially from one of its villains.

    But one thing that ruins the moment is that the dialogue audio plays as soon as Noctis delivers the killing blow which makes it very game-like, unnatural etc. I think they should have allowed for a brief pause to let the moment actually sink in.

    I've noticed in recent years that there are plenty of games and movies with a very serious tone. I think the idea is it makes for good drama which can make for good storytelling though you also need interesting characters for it to truly work.

    Personally, I think Japanese RPGs are less subtle than Western RPGs when it comes to drama. Japanese voice actors appear to put a lot of emphasis on certain words and sounds. But it doesn't always sound right (one of those "lost in translation" things). Not to say that all Japanese RPGs are the same but you do notice more and more similarities the more you play.

    I see. I don't know if that was an intentional thing, or just what occurs in the English version. I do understand there were quite a few liberties done to the script to the extent of some scenes even having a different feel all together.

    I fully agree that you need solid characters in order to make anything truly work. The emphasis on certain words and sounds I can understand. Like with anime for example, I have read enough times where somebody Japanese will say something along the lines of "We don't actually act like that in life". For my own uneducated ear, such things come across to me as over-acting a scene.

    Congrats, although I try to stay away from using the Royal Arms, unless my hp recovery is godly. I know that strategy doesn't work nearly as well on Dread Behemoth since it is resistant to Royal Arms

    Yes I think that Western RPGs have had some effect when it comes to storytelling and tone when it comes to some JPRGs even near
    the end PS2 era and the ps3/xbox 360 generation. If you ever get the chance to play Shadow Hearts Covenant on PS2 it's a very dark JPRG but has still a lot of funny moments.

    Isamu Kamikokuryo, Final Fantasy XV's art director, has left Square Enix. He wants to draw new things and revive his writing which is totally understandable.

    Final Fantasy XV Episode Gladio has two boss battles. I liked the challenge that both fights provided. The music for me is pretty bossin'.

    Gilgamesh looks so cool in this game. I especially like that he fights one-handed.

    Feedback on Gilgamesh has been mixed. Some people like the design choice, while other people were expecting the 4th wall breaking multi-armed Gilgamesh. This make number 4 on series iconic beings that have gone a different route for FFXV.

    Customizing your own is probably going to be the easiest solution:

    I'll edit this post later to show you one of the ones I had made in the past.

    Thanks Vyse. I have been keeping an eye open for anything else so I could do a single post if possible from the E3 content. Thanks for beating me to it.

    Need to jump back in this game. 2017's lineup benched this game for me. Think I'll start back up when I need a break from ME: Andromeda.
