Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised by how good that figure looked! I've never been one to buy stuff like this, but I remember seeing some XIII figures in a toy store about 4 or 5 years ago and noting to myself how... not-good they looked. I've never really followed the Play Arts figures, but after seeing this new one I had to look up some more recent ones and the quality has gone through the roof these last couple of years.
It's funny you say that because I actually JUST preordered the new Advent Children Cloud they are making, he comes in April for about $120. I got him mainly for love of the character and for display with Noct when he comes out. I'm hoping at San Diego Comic Con they might give a release date for Noctis.

I'm still hoping for a FFXV trading arts series like the Dissidia one. I'm not a fan of the play arts figures mainly because of the junctions. But I'd love to have a cool Noctis statue. ^^

like this


or the Kotobukiya statues


or the old bandai FF IX figures like

Oh I used to have some of those for 7 when I was younger! I think I had Cloud, Tifa, and Vincent. Good times xD Yeah I like those PAK's because of the size mainly, but also the detail and accessories to make them look a bit different when you feel like changing they're "pose" or what have you.

As you see in my description... I'm very much one to buy things like this, but I honestly don't like Play Arts Kai very much. I might be picking this one up though.

Maybe when my Cloud PAK comes in the mail in April/May I'll post some pics so we can see the quality we can expect from Noctis and possible Prompto/Glad/Ignis figures if anyone is interested. Also could anyone point out which swords are displayed with the Noctis figure? I posted a pic if someone could name them, just curious.

Does anyone have a translation for the stop bullet type move Prompto uses twice in the demo? Used at 28:20 and 35:19 in this version of the demo video:

Will keep my eyes peeled for any other special moves the party uses.

バインドバレッド
I believe it's trying to say Bind Barrel, they don't break up the katakana and it could be a pun of some kind for all I know. The idea is that when he shoots someone with this Bind attack, it Binds the enemy for a second or so as you can see, it glows reddish and freezes in place.

Really? 720p Square?
Doesn't bother me, it is also a demo. Now in days it's always about zee graphics :/ lol. Nothing else seems to matter more. Make everything look pretty! (but we all say the gameplay sucks and a lot of the new games).

Back in the PS1 snes era, we loved the gameplay but the graphics were ehhh lol. That's why I say, Balance!

I was talking about the screenshots' resolution. I don't care if the demo isn't 1080p, I just wanted a good quality pic of red-eyed Noctis.

I'd rather have a functional game than another AC Unity. Graphics aren't everything and I love FF so much that I'm just happy to see Dubbed trailers, a demo, and a very possible 2016 release date :)
 
Asking for 1080p screenshots is a tall order now? As it's already been said, yeah_93's comment wasn't about what the demo resolution should be, and simply about how higher quality screenshots would be nice.

I agree with your post, but you picked a bad game example there, when Unity is known to be 900p at barely even 30fps (and considerably lower in places). That game's an all-round mess. xD
