FFVXIII... Your Thoughts?
Well, considering it has nothing to do with FF13, other than being part of the same sub-franchise, and if I recall is being worked on by what is basically the "Kingdom Hearts Team", I expect it to be nothing like FF13 and a lot like Kingdom Hearts, just, you know, without all the cross over stuff. So... Kingdom Hearts, but Final Fantasy.
Edit: Also, I hope it's not as divisive as FF13 was. Not that FF13 was a bad or good game, but with it being such a divisive title, and with FF14 having been a total failure for them, Square probably can't afford yet another blemish on their record at this time, even if their blemishes still make them billions or millions of dollars.
Why are people always so insistent on reffering back to FF13 when discussing this title? It's an action RPG by the Tokyo Kingdom Hearts team (Square Enix PDD1), and it's not even a mainline FF game. As a Kingdom Hearts fan, I've always been more interested in this than FF13 and still fully expect it to be the better game, but that's mainly because this type of game appeals to me more and I know it's in good hands. I thought FF13 was fine for what it was, but I definitely don't need to see any of its gameplay elements make their way into Versus.
It's because your average person doesn't know that, fundamentally, there is no real connection between FF13, FF Versus 13, and FF Agito 13. It's Square's fault for giving them all the name "13" despite only one of them actually being 13. The only thing that connects the game is that they're part of a sub-franchise; Fabula Nova Crystalis, and it's Squares fault because they have done almost nothing to convey that to the general public. They should have just been called FF13, FF Versus, and FF Agito and all had a sub heading on them somewhere saying Fabula Nova Crystalis instead of relying on the number 13.
I'm plenty excited for it, I love the world they established in FFXIII. It'll be a very different type of game, but if the setting carries over much at all, I'll be pretty excited, since FFXIII was one of my top games of 2010. On the other hand, I generally do not like action RPGs so much as their main JRPG counterparts, so I'll be keeping a skeptic eye on it for the most part.
Though in the end, I'll buy it anyway, so it probably doesn't really matter.
" Why are people always so insistent on reffering back to FF13 when discussing this title?Seriously? I mean do you seriously not know why people constantly refer to Final Fantasy XIII when discussing Final Fantasy Versus XIII?
I agree that generally people should more informed but sometimes you have to blame the developers (or marketers).
