It was made by a western studio and it's imho quite tangible in the way it plays. Not to mention the music which is definitely very western. (like why didn't they use Shimomura's?)

And please, stop assuming every negative thing said about FFXV is coming from some salty versus fanboys. It's pretty annoying in it's own way.
Yeah, no, I'm pretty sure the only people bitching about it being western and Vs fanboys, sorry. That and people who just can't let other people enjoy something. They HAVE to find something negative to bring up about everything. I don't care who thinks that's annoying. I assure you, it's far, far more annoying in the other direction, and it's constant. I'll go ahead and call it out whenever I see it.

Not every negative thing but the stupid, nitpicky complaints that they have to really stretch to find something to fault.
Right, that's what I mean. It's one thing to bring up real legitimate concerns and observations. It's quite another to just desperately search for something to nitpick. It's so transparent every time, and if you say anything, it's all "what? Can't handle opinions?" bullshit.

If it wasn't the same people every time, maybe it wouldn't come off as so ridiculous. But it is the same people every time.

Why? Clearly if you get to Neogaf you will see still the same faces bitching about the same things. Im already know all their nicknames tho, all of the die-hard vsXIII fanboys, these people will never get over it.

Heck there are still people saying things like "Look at Luna getting abused in every piece of media".
While on the other side you get a Kingdom Hearts trailers showing Aqua getting beat up by two guys. They don't say shit then xD

You say that and they're all like "b-b..but you gotta add context to it". However, when it comes to FFXV, "Fuck context. Weak heroine. End of."

This is the length that they go to.

Edit: None of them are being abused. Both are trying to fight back and defend themselves from attack. You know? How a fight usually works especially in almost impossible odds?

Do we seriously have to discuss in every page what people outside this forum think about the game? Jesus Christ, the reason I left Gamefaqs was because you couldn't have a reasonable discussion before the thread turned into calling names. And no, negative comments towards XV don't come exclusively from old Versus XIII fans.

God bless Nomura (c)
And all his stronk female characters!
Im not even that twisted to come to the conclusion that Aqua is some weak character being abused just because she's being pummelled by two guys. But there's others who just love to cement it as fact that Luna is weak and being abused while having being pretty much in the same scenario as Aqua (although we do have more context to work with in Aquas case).

What makes such people go to the length of downplaying a Character with no real solid knowledge of the whole picture especially when dismissing the fact that another character is in a simliar or the same situation?

I dunno man. I guess it's just some deep as hell saltiness.

So what do you guys think the Epilogue thing is going to be like?

The loading screen said "Epilogue" instead of "Chapter X" (I did miss the first few minutes of the stream, just watched this part) and something among the lines of "here you can do whatever the fuck you want while roaming the world freely".

I'm guessing it's the post-game content thing. And I'm guessing it's the "going back to previous areas through a menu" thing Tabata talked about, with the timeskip marking the point of no return. So I'm guessing it's not a situation where you, as Noctis and co, say "Ok, let's leave this Niflheim stuff aside and let's go back to Lucis to kill innocent Garulas" and it basically goes back in time.

A shame if it's like that, as I wanted to roam the world with the new designs and abilities and items (maybe even Summons if Ifrit isn't obtainable until then, although I really doubt it) you potentially get in later areas. But I'm talking outta my ass and they could have very well chosen to omit that (I THINK that they didn't even have all the Royal Weapons?).

I don't share this sentiment and I'm not gonna argue in favor of it, but you could at least try to actually understand where the criticism is coming from and then try refuting it instead of attacking this straw man. It's not about a single occurance of a character being attacked but their overall portrayal. It's about context, and it's different for Aqua and Luna.

We understand where the criticism is coming from. The problem with this topic is that the people bringing it up aren't listening to anything anyone else is saying. It's running with a preconceived notion and making more of an issue out of it than may be necessary with incomplete info.

If the full game comes out and they're all totally right about it, then we can actually have a civil discussion about it.

How do you know that the epilogue should have been chapter ten?. I hope you didn't just give away the amount of chapters there are.

THIS is the bullshit. Right here. No one said that all negative comments towards XV come exclusively from old Versus fans. No one. At all. Not one single person. What we're talking about is the usual suspects manufacturing bullshit because they can't just say "hmm, neat trailer" or whatever.

I think these people isn't right at all, because strong character is not the one who can put a fight in the first place. You can be strong in many other things, especially if you are female.
Right, I can see this being a thing as well. But my point is with the info we have right now, you can look at it either way because there's just not enough information. Too many holes in the narrative. And that's why there can't be a rational conversation about it. Because, just like some of the Versus stuff, people are filling in their own blanks and using it to make emotional arguments. We just need the whole story to have a real conversation there.

LOL, no. I meant "x" as in a random number.

BTW, we DO know the actual number of chapters (it was talked about in some magazines and in the test pages of the official guide). So be careful if you don't want to know how many there are.
