I played FFVII, ask me anything.

#5 Posted by grhud5194 (181 posts) -

haha, great: ask me anything.
#6 Posted by heatDrive88 (2519 posts) -

Is this "Ask me anything" going to be a new kind of segment?
#7 Posted by MiDNiGHTS (40 posts) -

It's like a modified quick look. nice.

Final Fantasy 13 is already selling for 20$ new over at Japan because no one is buying it, I wonder how long will it take it here

A shit load of people bought are you talking about.

Well this video was a suprise, cool idea and I hope they do it again

"atb" is real time as far as I'm concerned.
If the monsters will wail on you while you sit there, it's real time. Doesn't really matter if you're waiting for a bar to fill up before you act.

Brad's alright. I can go to sleep now...

#16 Posted by aurahack (2483 posts) -

Also, not to blow anyone's mind or anything but I'm pretty sure the font FFXIII uses for it's UI is the same font Mass Effect uses for the "Normandy" (and other places in the game) font on the ship.

Get hyped for Final Fantasy XIII!  I'm SO excited!

This video confirms that Brad Shoemaker is not dead.

#20 Posted by Dolphin_Butter (1984 posts) -

Cool video idea, it was very informative! But, is the GB editorial crew going to commit to a review?

#21 Posted by galerian (58 posts) -

I don't know why, but Sazh looks like a very tanned Japanese...

#22 Edited by iizcallum (611 posts) -

I just love the presentation in this game. It's so nice to look at, and the menu's are so polished. I'll buy it even if it does (hypothetically) have a throwaway storyline, just for the flashy menus! :p

#23 Posted by NeoNaoNeo (52 posts) -
@august: Well, yeah it does matter. Since that waiting around for the bars to fill up while you can't do ANYTHING means it isn't real bloody time.
#24 Posted by Rio (603 posts) -

looks like a lot of fun.  I am excited to try this one out, even if it is very linear.

#25 Posted by buckybit (1517 posts) -

I like the CIA/FBI-debriefing style of this video.  
I also love the Duders ability to 'roll' when the camera rolls. They are so skilled after many, many years of doing this stuff. 'Dead Air' is something you won't get with the GB-Squad. 

#26 Posted by Vager (1675 posts) -

Those are some big ass numbers.
#27 Posted by momentarylogic (444 posts) -

The game looks interesting, but I can't get over the fact that it's using corporate lingo like Synergy and Paradigm Shift.

#28 Posted by Zaapp1 (691 posts) -

I don't know who else saw it, but that Chocobo looked like it had a stork's nose...

#29 Posted by InFamous91 (935 posts) -

Cool...I'm liking this

#30 Posted by EndrzGame (325 posts) -

"I'm gonna mount you Spacehorse"! I laughed sooo hard. Game looks great! Can't wait to get my hands on it. Thanx guys!

#31 Posted by Upryse (57 posts) -

PSThreeWeeksty  >_>

#32 Posted by TripMasterMunky (2523 posts) -

SpaceHorse. Still not sure how soon I want to pick this game up. If it should be a day 1 purchase or if I should just wait till summer or something for a price drop perhaps.

#33 Posted by j_meyer_13 (412 posts) -

Great segment idea... they look kinda awkward sitting that close together on a tiny couch, though. :P
As for FFXIII... I have almost no interest in any of the Final Fantasy games... >_>

#34 Posted by visualninja (21 posts) -

there more in depth than a quicklook but less scripted than a video review. i like it. now we need Ask Me Anything Throwback, where someone explains Dwarf Fortress to me.

#35 Posted by Moogy (7 posts) -

A bit disappointed that I didn't get to see Brad die.

#36 Posted by YoctoYotta (581 posts) -

Thanks dudes, this is a very enlightening video.

#37 Posted by RJPelonia (909 posts) -

Wow. Very informative. Really gave me a lot more interest in the game now.

#38 Posted by FrostyHerpiez (97 posts) -

ya knovv i really was not interested in this and thought my days of final fantasy where over... but now i think im deff sold on this game altho it seems square enix has taken there blonde haired main charachter pretty boys to the next level and made it a woman
#39 Posted by atomic_dumpling (2511 posts) -

Now all they need is a way to scribble directly on the picture, like a NFL play analysis.

#40 Posted by Evilsbane (5018 posts) -

New segment, awesome. Looks great guys can't wait for more!

But there are plenty of instances in games where you have to wait for a weapon to cool down or an animation to finish and you can't do anything then either. Just because there's a bar filling up on the screen doesn't make it any more turn based.
Bottom line is that if the game is influenced by the speed you input commands, it's real time because real time is involved. If you can sit there for as long as you want and think out your next move, it's turn based.

I love fish. Ask me anything.

#43 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13807 posts) -

Seems I need to go reserve a game today.

#44 Posted by wwfundertaker (1470 posts) -

Looks very intense, cant wait.

#45 Posted by frans130 (60 posts) -

Looks stunning. I have no prior experience with this genre, bt this might be the game that's going to introduce me to it. Great video BTW, hoping this is going to become a new segment

Thinking the same thing...
#47 Posted by Moridin (730 posts) -

Yay for Brad being back.

#48 Posted by rjayb89 (7806 posts) -

Uh, black dude needs to calm down with his guns.

#49 Posted by hermes (1729 posts) -

This "ask me anything" video is very good. Maybe they can turn it into a new section.
#50 Posted by Rhaknar (6299 posts) -
