    What is that, Ifrit? Diabolos? A random mook? I don't know! Third base!

    This is actually Ifrit's Type-0 design: The main thing changed are the gears being removed. It looks like many of the summons featured in Justice Monsters V share their designs with their Type-0 counterparts or hold designs not indicative of their design in the core Final Fantasy XV game. I...

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    I was sorta hoping it wasn't drama and might just be some harmless talking, but that seldom tends to be the case with me. I'll work on it.

    Well if that's your call that's your call man. I'll try to work on my clarity in the future so hopefully you find me worth talking to again. I do think you're misrepresenting me and what I'm saying, and confusing parallel or additional points with "arguing" but if it's less stressful for you to...

    Would you do me the kindness of telling me what you actually were arguing or was I capable of parsing it myself?

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    This is the second time you've told me I don't understand what I'm arguing when I clearly do. I can plainly see your argument, I plainly engage in discourse with it, you then say "you don't get it". You're saying there's no strong acceptance of these numbers. That hasn't been the case from my...

    That's one way it can be interpreted, but I personally think it's something people should be cautious about buying into too strongly. There's plenty of better impressions floating out there, and yet there are people feeling vindicated by this really odd metric. It just doesn't stand up to...

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    But this forum was definitely taking is as positive news, even saying things like this contradicted naysayers, and the assertion that people are arguing against this unopposed is not what I'm seeing in the least. All I'm doing is pointing out that this just falls on the spectrum for Final...

    First, please don't get mad at me here, just trying to give my two cents on this stat. If we're being completely real here, this is a really bad metric by which to gauge the quality of the game or even the quality of the demo presented at Gamescom. I mean, didn't this forum just totally rail...

    What is that, Ifrit? Diabolos? A random mook? I don't know! Third base!

    Was glad to see it finally confirmed. I'm guessing this means Ifrit is the summon with a redesign that Tabata mentioned. Intrigued to know more, the calm almost royal demeanor he's putting on display here is a nice departure from the typical bestial rage we see from that summon. I wonder if this...

    Wow those shots must be ridiculously old to have the 2013 UI in them.

    [Spoilers] FFXV story pacing

    This sounds like a good thing to me. I agree that Tabata is referencing the main plot mostly, and the advantage of linearity in such things is that you can put an extra level of polish on events, set-pieces, etc. There's a reason you fight Titan in a small specific arena with linear sections of...

    KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV news & discussion thread

    Suddenly glad I didn't drag my girlfriend all the way out to Chicago to see this flick. She offered to go out of solidarity, bless her, but I was hoping for something we'd both be likely to enjoy. It sounds like I'll really like it just as a matter of being such a big fan of XV and having a keen...

    No no, I know that Cindy was likely never meant to be a major character. I'm making zero leaps there. I also don't think game designers/writers/whoever should necessarily feel like they have to make a character that aligns to anything but their own creative vision. I'm just pointing out the...

    That would fall squarely under "squandered potential". She's also the heir to Cid's legacy in much the same way that Noctis is the heir to Regis', and her name while not directly Cid is "Cidney" in Japanese hence why I said "brush with". The fact that they choose to make her a minor character...

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    I mean, it's a discussion of a character design in the game itself. Seems like the appropriate place for it. My main problem with Cindy's design is how bad it is even before you take into account the rampant sexualization. It says very little about her character other than that she's supposed to...
