    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    Have my ebook copy of DotF, got it on a whim. On the whole, an enjoyable read, and they way they phrase it doesn't break the canon too much in my view. But definitely not for outsiders, and more than a little repetitive. Translation, original work, who can say which. Also, the fight scenes...

    Not really worth translating. It's banter between two people who worked on the same project, plus Suzuki saying something along the lines of "here's Shun'ichi-san's new work".

    That's a nice rendition of Somnus... And I'm not imagining it, this is rather a lot of arrangements to put out for a four-year-old game, at this time of the year, alongside all those tweets... Guess that's so. Doing some research, the moon also has dual symbolism attached to it. It can stand...

    Normally I'd say a book isn't worth that, but Japanese companies have done much more for much less. Thanks for the correction. I've always associated places like churches and cathedrals with death, so I got a little cross-wired with my imagery.

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    I might've dismissed all this as something of a prank or leg-pull for us oh-so-eager fans who want to know "the truth", but this much material coming out now, before the month of gaming with all these events, is a little fishy. Or it could all be a gigantic coincidence or leg-pull. Okay, that...

    Now I've seen some press scans, the artwork looks interesting to say the least, so I've decided to order a copy. And since I've already spoiled myself rotten on the book's contents, I don't mind waiting or seeing updated summaries. It's a way to support SQEX's new publishing label that I don't...

    What games are you playing now?

    I'm taking a rest from gaming, but I have been playing Type-0 HD and Trials of Mana. Both good. Really like Type-0 HD on PC, and Trials of Mana is very fun despite its story not being very...there. And I will admit the dubs for both of them are terrible.

    I know the feeling. My ideal game design would include: *Entirely skippable tutorials and cutscenes from start to finish *Limitation or removing of damage sponge enemies (FF Type-0 with its Break/Killsight mechanics does this quite well, I think) *Side quests with variety and fun rather than...

    This is very sad to hear. Saw the news on Siliconera. Apparently he died of cancer. Wonder who they could recast in the role.

    I liked the days when games were games, with most of their best content actually unlockable within the game itself.
