I wouldn't say luck is a factor, I would just say that the framerate isn't as bad as you're saying. Don't get me wrong... it does dip, hell I've had my game crash on me TWICE, which is far worse than having a few frame drops. :(
I would have liked to show you my first fight against the Behemoth after the main quest. It was a total disaster. The framerate was somewhere between ~3fps-10fps during the last third of the battle. :/

My page disconnected while taking the survey and now I can't even finish it... I don't even know where to go for support on this. This is extremely frustrating.
Wow that's crap. :/
Imo they should've at least let the codes connect to your SE account after redeeming and also give you the chance to edit/add things to it until a specific deadline.

I'm still waiting for a solution for digital buyers.... but I'm not really optimistic here. :/

Crossing fingers for players inputting actual feedback and not whining about what's there & not there for the game.
Yeah, folks are complaining about lack of overworld music on gaf... It's a demo people! Music isn't done, text isn't done, animations aren't done etc. FFS magic isn't even done :)

The same about supposed lack of things to do in Duscae. It's a demo and I've already racked up 10h just in this region going nowhere... That actually makes me worried about how long it'll take me to get through the rest of the game!

The survey asks everything what lacks & what's good so it's they're going to say the obvious regardless if it's a demo or not to them.... Obviously the development team of FFXV will understand why they have said that. I wouldn't worry.

If anyone has any problem with the US survey where you lose connection or you need to refresh but can't get the survey back up, please contact me here on the forums. I don't want to disclose how to do it publicly, simply because it can be exploited by people who don't have a real code.

Nomura wanted the move to be centered around the main cast of characters with Noctis and his friends/companions with a road trip style setting. Four guys on a road trip will act very differently if a girl is with them. They will be sleeping together in tents, and of course talking about stuff guys talk about. Guys act differently around girls, and so this will disrupt the narrative.

Not everyone will be happy with this answer, but it's the one that has been given by Nomura and Tabata, and it makes a lot of sense. Final Fantasy XV is taking a new approach with both storytelling and gameplay that challenge the existing standards for what Final Fantasy has set previously. The story is what's important for me, and I like that they are focused on creating a story that is meaningful, not shoehorning in characters to appeal to everyone.
Plus didn't Tabata or someone say that there will be guest party members? So, technically speaking the people who want a female party member could in a way get their wish.

    • [QUOTE="Wazi the pa, post: 21171, member: 250" Noctis' personality to me is like the combination of some of Tidus' & Cloud's personality.
      [/QUOTE]
    Noctis is a reconstruction of Cloud.

Eh, Noctis voice acting and the others as well were very nuanced I thought. I mean they didn't just stick to one "I'm the smart guy or I'm the clown" all the time. They felt multifaceted with just the limited time in the demo.
Dialogue during game-play = real time characterization, it doesn't stop at the cost of gameplay. Yes whoever did the script and character sheets deserves credit for fleshing out their personalities. The party isn't behaving these ways because of A, B, and C clichie, which is the opposite in a light of shonen light anime. Nomura said he wanted the characters less animey and by that I think he meant a step away from something you would see in One Piece or Fairy Tail. Now all we need is backstory to further justify behavior and probably some other things.

However, my biggest concern is the theme of friendship. If the characters get along all the time in a world full of cynicism and despair then that would come off as a childish relationship because boundaries aren't crossed. It just repeats we can beat evil through the power of friendship! and that is not appropriate for what is described as the darkest Final Fantasy yet. Conflict shouldn't come from the antagonist alone. there's grey here.

as for voice acting it's hammy cuz there's no jrpg that isnt...

But they can´t abuse it as long as they don´t have the demo code
Actually, it's EXTREMELY easy to get to the poll without having a code. It's pretty disgusting whoever designed the page for the poll entry didn't even fucking try to create a decent authentication system. PLUS, if you enter your code and refresh, it fucking LOCKS YOU OUT. That's the entire reason why I had to figure out how to break it, and fuck me it's laughable. Anyone that knows about programming would take a look at that "authentication" system and LAUGH, I know I did.

The survey can be accessed without a code. I wish they just released the US copies of Type-0 with the fucking registration code and authenticated a survey based off that and not this half assed PSN code shit that doesn't even work.

Whoever made that page should be fired, no exaggeration. They not only have compromised the survey, but they also made Square Enix look embarrassed.

That's only a problem of the US survey so far, right? Cause you have to log in to your SE member account to have access to the EU survey.

ok.... lets just hope they can detect the trolls between those feedbackers....
