@andmm: Yeah the first .01 seconds of the video are sure to entertain.

fuck cloud? fuck you brad. Uggh... Listening to you guys bitch about 7 is ridiculous. The golden era WAS 7. Most people didn't even know what final fantasy was before 7. You guys are old and crotchety.

hey drew! you forgot to attach this to the game page.

cheers! :)

Okay guys, keep it clean in the comments. The guys like different FF games than you do, don't get your panties in a knot.

Thank god i am not the only one who thinks FF7 did more harm then good and fuck Cloud.

Sick and tired of FF7.

That is what I was thinking. To each their own I suppose.

This, there isn't single FF game after 6 that is better than any game pre 7.

Final Fantasy IV is the best one because I was 12 when it came out and I am a manchild.

Posted by Bourbon_Warrior

Anyone that says FF7 isnt the best is fucking lying!

Edited by MAD_JIHAD

The existence of this game is confusing. I guess FF fans will buy anything with the FF brand on it.

This video is more entertaining.

So this is like Dissidia but a Rhythm game , so how long before we get the Dissidia RPG, Paradox!

I will never not be freaked out by people who say 'See-suhl' rather than 'Seh-suhl' for Cecil. Is it a US/UK thing?

The thing is, they probably don't.

ITT: Final fantasy fans continue to argue over why their favorite FF game is the best one.

I disagree. 9, 10 and 12 are my favourites in the series. 10-2 is pretty great too. Not so hot on FF6 - I think it's the worst out of 4-6. 1-3 are pretty dated now.

Dragon Quest is a better series overall though.

Yes. In the US it is "see-suhl".

Man the framerate chugs in this game, which feels like a super weird thing to say about a 2D handheld game.

Take me to Rhythm Heaven!

Wait....

I really want to play this game, but I don't want to buy a 3ds just for this.

Posted by MrBlueJackle

If I had a 3DS and liked Final Fantasy and wanted to play a rhythm game based on Final Fantasy on my 3DS, I'd buy this.

Posted by Orange_Pork

I haven't been this happy with a Final Fantasy game since FF9.

Posted by BasketSnake

Even with 7 being my favorite game of all of the chrystallis of eterniumys in the world I will totally agree that 6 is the best one. If you grew up with the snes RPGs and haven't played that...fuck you.

Posted by Rodin

Don't get me wrong guys i love brad and im used to this but, It's kinda annoying when brad says that the rpg mechanics are very important, but then doesn't explain how, or doesn't seem to know how it actually effects the rest of the game.

Posted by Ursus_Veritas
@a5ehren: That's a really odd differential. Would an American pronounce Cecilia as 'See-see-lee-ah' rather than 'Suh-see-lee-ah' then, or is it just in the male name that the pronunciation's different? 
 
Any way back on topic, this looks pretty nifty. Might have to pick it up over the summer!

This is really, really dumb. Just like most things Final Fantasy, post FF6.

Posted by Bistromath

Holy...I...I think I want a 3DS now.

Posted by Neurotic

How did I know this game being QL'd would start some sort of argument over the best Final Fantasy? I must be some sort of oracle...

This game looks better than it had any right to be. If I had a 3DS, I would pick it up.

Posted by ElixirBronze

The Atrhythm

Posted by Trevorisamazing

Oh man I will pay 40 dollars to play "This Is The Final Battle" from FF3.

Edited by NickLott

This game looks better than I thought but it's just making me want to play Gitaroo Man

And the only FF that matter are 4-6, 12 and Tactics. That's all.

Posted by Sanj

Man, definitely picking this up when I get my 3DS XL.

Edited by captainanderson

This game looks charming as hell. I'll probably pick it up when I buy the 3DS XL.

Also, I just want to say I'm disappointed in the majority of the comments on this video. I'm not sure when Giant Bomb turned into every other video game community, but it's seriously bumming me out.

Posted by DeadMonkeys

Let it end!

Posted by adam1808

Feel kind of sorry for Brad having to do all the heavy lifting in this QL.

Edited by believer258

Guys. There's fourteen of the damn things, not even counting the side stories and other stuff. You really don't need to bitch and argue about which one is the best.

As for the game? I wouldn't buy it but it doesn't look half as bad as I thought it would be.

Posted by Nephrahim

I'm glad the guys could open the whole "Which FF is best" argument with silly throw-away comments. Thanks.

Posted by paulunga

I find it funny that he didn't pick Cloud but went with an even whinier bitch of a character in Squall. That aside I played and enjoyed the demo. But then again I love Ouendan/EBA.

Posted by MormonWarrior

This game looks freaking sweet...I'll defs pick it up with my 3DS XL later this year.

Posted by RuneseekerMireille

I'm very interested in this game, but I really want to know...

How do your stats play into the game? I hope it has some nuance to it, such as characters growing differently and your stats playing a part into the rhythm game, but I need to know before I purchase this game, since a straight-up rhythm game will not hold my attention long enough to be worth $40.

Posted by Turambar

Annnd I just ordered a 3ds and this game on Amazon.  Fuck me.

Posted by algertman

Fuck Cloud

Picks Squall and Lightning.

Weeaboo Brad.

Posted by VargasPrime

I was planning on getting a 3DS XL in August, and this might just be one of the games I get with it.

I dunno, something about it just grabbed me. The FF score is definitely part of it. Say what you want about any FF game being your favorite or least favorite, but the music is always good, and that's the real meat here anyway.

As far as I know it's just the male name, but I'm guessing you'd be able to find people here who say "see-sil-yuh" as well.

Taken from JustPushStart:
 
"These stats will increase as you level and include Strength, Magic, Agility, in addition to luck. Each of these stats will come into play based off the type of song you’re playing. So if it’s a BMS where you fight various monsters, strength / magic will come into play, whereas FMS is about running, so you want a higher agility. All of these elements are further supported by abilities."
