New FFXV Trailer

Now with female characters.

I honestly think it looks pretty cool. The mix of modern, realistic elements with the crazy fantasy shit makes me think it a backhanded HD version of FFVIII.

All that said, I also thought FFXIII looked kinda cool when all I knew of it was its trailer so...

I really don't know. This trailer does nothing for me. Maybe it's because of how stupid the protagonists look. Or how I'm not feeling any Final Fantasy vibe in it at all. Like, it's a dead trailer.

To me, it looks like something Ubisoft (or any other western dev) would make.

"Plans? What plans? i'm making this up as I go!"

I just said the exact same thing on Facebook haha.
I don't want to fall for that trick twice, so I'm cautious, but it does look nce.

Isn't that good news?  Square-Enix was well overdue for learning a few tricks from other developers.  They've made two good games in the last five years, and both of those are recent.  Before that?  They couldn't do anything right.

I think the game looks promising.  This trailer was more of a demo almost, but hearing Yoko Shimomura's music in the background and seeing that they are still tracking well is encouraging.  Since Tabata took over this game has come to life.

And... I thought FFXIII looked like crap from day one. I'm very pumped for this one though.  It looks like it has characters in it, and it's story is about stuff.  FFXIII failed both of those criteria in all three games.  It looks like these guys will have some personality.  Now I just hope they throw in a few female characters (I'm optimistic) and some better haircuts (I'm not optimistic) and we'll be good.

Everything just looks so... limp.  It starts out promisingly enough but then the actual protags show up and everthing just dives headfirst into dullsville.

Unintentional hilarity at the dude pointing up at the ships flying over head.

I can't tell you how much I love this quote.


I thought the trailer was pretty good.  I'm still not super excited or anything, but I'm definitely interested in it.

As I mentioned on Twitter, I heartily approve of Cid being a woman!

But really, revealing her by having her work on a car while wearing thigh high boots and a bra was just tacky.

One step forward, a mile backwards.

The only problem I have with this version of Cid is not the fact Cid is female in this (I mean, that has long been overdue!), but rather that atrocious accent they gave her (I can only speculate that her Japanese voice actress has an Osakan accent as it's a common trope in anime dubbing to give a character who had an Osakan accent a US Southern twang when dubbed into English. And unfortunately they gave her the worst Southern accent imaginable. I felt like putting pins in my ears when she opened her mouth. ><;).

That and I really hope making Cid a woman here isn't simply a bait and switch on SE's part to dissuade criticisim that there isn't enough female characters in the game - straw feminism is just as bad as sexism to me. But I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Other than that, this is looking good - I love the whole 'contemporary/real world design with a twist' setting like FFVII and VIII, and the plot seems to be getting back to the series roots of 'evil empire invades protagonist's home nation and drives them on the run from said Empire'. It's just the terrible voice acting and the slightly sexist slant that is offputting to me. But that's only minor gripes for me.

Sorry, what were you saying? I was distracted by something(s) that... showed up... when we started talking about Cidney...

I'm sure there will be lots of talk about her being a very good mechanic.  We'll only really be *shown* boobs, but you know... she'll have a good rep as a mechanic.

No Cid = Blasphemy though I suspect Cindy is the daughter of a guy called Cid.

It looks...meh.  Then again they've all looked meh too me for years.  I just think the final fantasy ship has sailed for me, I've been disappointed in everyone I've played after FFX.  What I wouldn't give for an old school turn based combat in a final fantasy. Sigh.



And that, as they say, is that.

It's not Cindy, it's Cidney. So she's Cid.
