Yup, internet’s over. We didn’t realize it, but there were victory conditions built into the internet, and one of them was “Man at Arms Builds a Buster Sword.” So that happened. There’s really no reason to continue. All we can do is tear it all down and restart at a harder difficulty level. Personally, I’m not looking forward to it. Beating RealPlayer was hard enough on easy. I don’t even want to imagine what it’s like on Warlord.

Continuing with their current plan of wildly overcorrecting to fix their busted ass game, Square has apparently reached the point where they’re just outright lifting bits from games they know people like. “Folks love Final Fantasy VI! We’ll just stick bits of that game in here!” Next I assume we’ll learn that one of your main quest givers will be a spiky haired blonde man with a giant sword. Or that you’ll be able to join an elite mercenary force dedicated to destroying Sorceresses.
Oh, and as for why literally half of this video is just the logo while music plays? Your guess is as good as mine. I guess they really kind that logo.
Thanks, Cracked. I think we all knew this, but having all the worst offenders of shopping in one place like this makes game shops look really awful. However, they did cram half a dozen shop theories into one, so it makes even less sense than normal. Each world has their own economy and can’t possibly have a proper exchange rate in a single store. I’d say that I’m going to start and overpriced video game store, but I hate auction houses.
If you were unwilling to accept the existence of a Final Fantasy X remake until you had video proof, well, this is good news. That certainly is footage for the new HD Remaster of the game. Your fears are unfounded.
For everyone else… eh. A couple seconds of footage that probably looks nicer than the old game. Maybe? I really can’t tell without a side by side comparison, and even then I’d be hard pressed to choose the “good one.” But I trust that it’s nicer than the original, because what other reason does this have for existing? They’ve only got a couple lines of dialogue, but it sounds like they haven’t updated it from the original, so we can expect more of that. So graphics are what we’ve got. I’m gonna assume that they’re way better.
And I guess I understand that there might be space issues with the Vita, fitting both games on the card might have been tough. But couldn’t they just sell a two pack? Why make us but then separately if we can get them together on the PS3? That’s not cool. Even better, why can’t I pay once, and get them both on both systems? That seems like the best possibility. I should get some sort of reward for buying your stupid handheld, Sony.
This looks like it took 4-7 days to complete based on the changing angles and assumption he has a day job. I never played the 8-bit Final Fantasy games, but I might go this far if I really liked them. I’d make the Highwind from Final Fantasy 7, but there’s not a whole lot of room for a computer in that one.
Horse-Bird, you may remember, is the Final Fantasy XIV word for Chocobo. And this trailer has Horse-Birds in droves. Horse-Birds running across fields, Horse-Birds carrying armies, Horse-Birds fighting monsters. All the Horse-Birds you could possibly need.
Then there’s also plenty of giant fights against giant monsters in which the player characters really seem to be getting their asses kicked. Maybe I’m imagining it, but there seem to be a disproportionate number of scenes where the characters are being knocked out. That’s a weird way to advertise. Was the old version or the game considered too easy? Are they trying to tell us this is harder? Still weird. You don’t see Dante getting his ass killed right time during a Devil May Cry preview to show you how brutal the game is. Maybe Dark Souls did. There’s probably a Dark Souls preview built around the mindset of “This game will kill you!” But it still doesn’t seem to be a good fit for an MMO.
Phoenix Downs are very common in most of the Final Fantasy universes. A lot of stores carry them. Yet it causes addiction? Maybe. Half the things you use in Fallout cause addiction, why not Phoenix Downs? A little weird that Auron is here. Not sure how a dead man can tell me about addiction-forming pillow stuffings. (spoiler?)
Adventure Time and Final Fantasy 7 on one shirt. There is literally nothing I can say that will improve that statement. Go get it, now.
Seriously, what are you still doing here. It’s only available until 9PM Pacific on Teefury. Make it happen!
Holy hell, what is happening in this game? Retro graphics, multiple time lines, a “team” consisting of twenty or thirty members? Did Final Fantasy get drunk and try to mate a time machine and a cloning machine? Outside of “active time battle system” literally no part of this combat system makes any sense to me. Does each row fight together, maybe? And if so, what does it matter? Why would I have thirty characters on the screen when they’re really only doing the work of five? Is it a series of nothing but boss battles, or did they just decide everything had to be giant to justify the giant armies?
I dunno. And probably won’t get a chance to find out, as it seems to be an iOS game, and I have no iOS devices. And that may be for the best. Because, jesus, these microtransactions. I don’t mind paying for a game. I don’t even mind paying for DLC, as long as it adds a decent amount of new content for a decent price. But this game. 3.99 for the core game. Not so bad. A little pricey for mobile, but Square’s mobile games have been historically overpriced, so that’s not a surprise. But the extra purchases. New “Worlds” from Final Fantasy 7, 10 and 13 for another 3.99 each. So, now we’re up to sixteen bucks for the whole game. Alright. Then the “Premium” characters. .99 for each character. But you don’t get to see which one you’re purchasing, so like a Magic booster pack you’ll end up making several purchases before you get the guy you want. If you actually want all the characters that’s another thirty five bucks. So, fifty one dollars total for a mobile game. That’s… ouch.
Could’ve sworn this was a thing I saw while I was sleeping. They also decided to make them wet for some reason. No complaints here.
