        I can confirm this. I love FFXIV and I don't mind grinding. But I have my limits...plus they don't have a weapon for DRK which is my main. If people have to autism to get the gear power to them. To be honest as well I sincerely doubt people would swap off of FFXIV entirely barring a summerfag esqe influx. MMOs tend to be a commitment and frankly even an ezpz one like FFXIV will become more of a habit then a choice. Remember how long it took even people who hated Blizzard to quit? Much less the normalfags who just turned their brains off even though the content was objectively bad. Unless FFIX is such an amazing mmo that it cures cancer and manifests a person's waifu in reality no one is gonna completely jump ship. Hell even the WoWfags didn't completely stick to FFXIV and just dropped off mmos altogether.

          It's easy with bg-wiki in the background giving you the walkthroughs and which quests to do when. Considering most of the quests give you zero guidance, and "asking people where to go" isn't gameplay no matter how much boomers insist it is, that's the optimal way to play.

      On the contrary. Game sold well since it was supposed to be an anniversary title. It was then ported to everything else and given a decent expansion. Also considering the first game's script was already said to be finished years ago, I expected it to come out sooner or later

      I guess it depends on the game's budget. And not to mention, their strategy with these "budget" titles is "sharing" dev cost with other studios (said in their financial reports).

      Probably. They wouldn't tease The Emperor for no reason wouldn't they? I'd be pretty cool if SoP is turned into a Dissidia esque game (narrative wise) while the Dissidia games are designed towards e-sports shit.

      It says rework not remake. In the New Years greeting blog on the FFXI website, they said they'd be reworking FFXI to be more comfortable for new players. So this tracks. The beginning of XI is incomprehensible, making it more accessible to newcomers is the first step.

        XI also sent out a New Years email to players that mentioned the team was "preparing for the transfer to the next generation" or something

        So I believe something is going on. They are running out of PS2 devkits to keep it alive on, and I doubt SE wants to lose that reliable cash cow or let a numbered FF become unplayable. They attempted a remake years ago that fell through, but that doesn't mean they don't still want to do one.

                XIII almost sank the entire company because of Luminous Engine
                The other 3 XIII games were made in an effort to squeeze Luminous for all it was worth and make up for their massive losses after XIII flopped. Same with Type-0.
                The obvious advantage is to keep the XIII team together and just have them keep going with the same workflow they had by the end of XIII's dev cycle, so they wouldn't waste time re-learning anything and just make more product to be sold.

                Toriyama clearly has dirty laundry on someone, because he got a big spot on VII:R after almost destroying Square Enix with his stupid bullshit, but I don't think he calls the shots.

                XIII was an absolute flop and was received terribly by players
                I might have mixed up the names of the engines, but Crystal Tools fucked over BOTH XIII and XIV 1.0 and it was because the XIII team kept fucking around with it trying to make Lightning do the retarded environmental moves she does in the proof of concept trailer.
                To this day XIII is the cheapest game in the franchise second only to FFII and FFI ports.
                Every single positive review on Steam reads "I know this game has a lot of problems BUT..." , or "I know everyone loves to hate this game BUT..." , or my fav "it starts with 20h of slog tutorial BUT...".

                Retard.
                It didn't make that much, certainly didn't make a profit, and day 1 sales are a reflection of how well the marketing department did, not how good the game is.
                I bought XIII when it came out, I couldn't have known how the game was without playing it.
                Don't confuse sales with endorsements.

                The point of their argument was never if 13 was good or bad tho, what fucked square the most at the time was clearly the engine being bad and 14 being a nuclear disaster, regardless of 13 doing well or not. What hindered square for many years was other elements

                and the point of my argument is that the reason those "other elements" went as bad as they did were the unreasonable requests and constant changes demanded by the XIII team which also impacted XIV development since they had to adapt to the changes as well, using the same tools.

                No dude
                What fucked 14 1.0 was just terrible management because the devs worked in separated groups without management, so when the game was put together everything was breaking. They also believed they could just copy 11 without evolving anything and it would work again.
                13 had nothing to do with 14 being shit, even yoship says that
                Now 14 being a disaster stopped the whole company until it was fixed, so at least 2 years

                13 is one of the better selling FFs in the series, and it sold well enough to profit almost immediately despite the divisive reception.
                Only Lightning Returns saw terrible day one sales, but even it was stated to have sold more than enough to have met expectations.
                XIII did not "almost sink the company"; It was a big success even if it is near the bottom in regards to popularity nowadays.
                Anything else you have to say is worthless because your entire premise is fabricated bullshit.

                Conveniently ignoring that Square Enix did everything they could to inflate XIII sales numbers.
                They gave it away almost for free in bundles and christmas packages.
                I myself got XIII 4 times, of which only 1 time was on purpose, and I fucking hate that game.
                I even own XIII-2 and LR, and I gave away those extra XIII codes they gave me, I think some of them went unclaimed cause everyone had it already.

                It's a similar tactic they used to fudge around with LiS sales, they gave Ep1 away to hundreds of thousands and counted each individual ep sales as unique purchases.
                Probably less than 100k people bought Ep5 but the game's sales numbers say it sold millions, which is hilarious.
                Publicly traded publishing companies have a vested interest in inflating their sales, much like MMO studios have a vested interest in pretending they have tens of millions of players all will do underhanded shit like counting all accounts made as "Active" when 90% of them aren't.

                FFXIII actually uses a completely different engine called Crystal Tools.

                What fucked them over was FFXIII being very expensive and using its own engine, Luminous Engine being developed simultaneously and taking a decade to get FFXV out, and FFXIV 1.0 failing and having to spend time and money fixing that shitshow and all of this happening at roughly same time.

                It was 14 1.0's failure that nearly sank the company. Granted, they probably shouldn't have tried to reuse Crystal Tools for an MMO.
                The ARR project then borrowed all the competent programmers at Squeenix to get the thing out the door in two years, which is why you got two new asset flip 13 sequels and a spinoff game that eventually morphed into 15.

                They can't make a game "as good as" FF7, because they can't take the business risks they used to. FF7 was VERY out there and unconventional as a concept, especially for the Western market and would never get approved today. Yet Square put all their fucking eggs in that basket and a shit ton of money and took the gamble. You'll never get that level of confidence in their product again.

                As cool as FFXVI looks, it's really just a bunch of really safe and market proven things stuck together. XIV does nothing experimental or ambitious, they just conservatively copy what was already successful either in past FFs or in other MMOs.

                13-2 was fun, it fixed a few of the battle system issues but not all of them, had some bangers on its ost, had a better mix of light hearted moments and serious ones, and had actual areas to explore again.
                like it might not be amazing, not top 5 ff games or anything, but it was definitely enjoyable. still better than any other mainline game they've put out since astonishingly, which just goes to show how terrible squenix have become. if you didn't like 13-2, the series has only plummeted even further off a massive cliff since then in quality design. sure it has more '''quality''' when that means money pumped into it for graphics, but the writing and gameplay have only gotten worse

                X-2 has great gameplay, and each following XIII game is better than the last.
                Also, Crisis Core was pretty good, and so was Advent Children.

                The After Years was clearly a lazy copypaste "soft reboot" of the original meant to pass the torch to new bland characters while assassinating the classic characters. The After Years is The Force Awakens of Final Fantasy IV.
                At least they are aware that the game is blatantly ripping off the original, unlike The Force Awakens.
                But, that doesn't excuse them for recycling like 80% of the content from the original.

                I wouldnt even say Force Awakens was worse than TAY, at least Force Awakens the leads actually accomplished something, and some of the old cast did things that werent complete fail.

                Whereas nothing of value was really accomplished by the newbies until the end, and most the cast jobbed out while only like maybe 4 of them werent being complete idiots for no good reason.

    Barret's whole point is how he seeks revenge on shinra(he is right) but also blinded himself with an extremist point of view that ends up thinking that every person that works for shinra is just as evil as them, just to paint his terrorist acts as something necessary. He sees the world as black and white in order to not feel doubt, this is why he has the preachy attitude

    He hides his need for revenge behind the saving the planet facade, ignoring how the people that he is bombing are innocent as he once was
    This is like thinking that every person that works for Amazon is evil as Bezos, when most people who work for shinra just want to get out of the slums
    The remake even talks about this when tifa questions him in the elevator about the innocent people that work for shinra

                Here is the thing, depends on what type of story you want to tell, there is character based stories that evolving your character means that you evolve your plot
                FF7 is like that, cloud is the center of many things, his changes and reactions shape those events

                And every party member in 7 suffered a huge loss or is dealing with grief in some way. So their development is fundamental for the game

                Different than stories like FF12 where many of the games' events arent focused around your main characters

                Some of my favorite characters of all time have next to zero development. Conan the Barbarian, Vampire Hunter D, etc.

                The problem with "character development" is that where they end up is always more boring than where they started. They always become more reasonable, conservative and level headed, which usually puts an end to their interesting personality quirks and their adventure. I like stories where the characters are more like archetypes that drive a new plot rather than being the plot themselves, if that makes sense.

      Not really a complete reading.
      Barret before Kalm is basically suicidal.
      You have to understand the context behind his actions, that mainly being that ShinRa has already won and has won overwhelmingly and completely. AVALANCHE has been wiped out already, it's just him, a schizo bomb teenager, a retarded fat dude, Biggs and Tifa.
      Bombing a million reactors isn't gonna do anything to the literal world government.
      He feels that he deserves death for participating in condemning Kalm to being taken over by ShinRa, and he will get his honorable death in battle no matter who gets caught in the crossfire, including Marlene.

      The ending of his arc is the same as every other character in VII, that despite the past being fucked there's still reasons to survive. His reason being Marlene.

        They weren't embarrassed by it, people misunderstood the reaction and ran with their own guesses. What happened was that they were confused by it and didn't really understand why people were acting like that because it seemed obvious to them that a trailer of "man who wants to kill Chaos goes to Chaos Shrine" will probably have Chaos mentioned more than a few times. But they also considered that since they know the full story and how it ends they're just going to be looking at things differently, and ultimately said something to the effect of "if people have fun with that then go ahead". They even encouraged people to count how many times Chaos gets said in the full game. The trailers after the first were full kino though, especially the last one and even in spite of going full blown spoiler regarding the first twist. Which sort of worked out and shows their confidence in the rest.

              But to pretend like his success didn't steer the company to the point where now FFXVI is Nioh/Soulsborne is ridiculous. Obviously he made square swerve pretty hard.

              Look at XVI, for example. It's directed by Yoshi-P, who is a huge fan of Matsuno games, Tactics, Vagrant Story.
              I would type "Vagrant Story 2 when?" in every XIV Live letter cause I knew he wanted to make it, and yet when he does get to make literally Vagrant Story 2 in all but name, he calls up the Capcom boys and has the game be Nioh instead of the cool combat system in Vagrant Story with a little bit of streamlining.
              You think that's not because of how successful KH was and how bad XIII was?

              FF since 7 was trying to sell itself like a blockbuster, so this doesnt makes any sense
              The cinematic approach was getting bigger and bigger with every title

              not talking about cinematics, I'm talking about pretending to be an action title like DMC
              you can go look at the old ads and trailers for it
              the first XIII concept trailer is literally an action game, with environmental kills

                The shift to action combat wasnt just made because of kh, it was a natural change in the whole industry, most jrpgs couldnt find a way to manage action combat with control of multiple party members, this is why only after the ps2 they startet getting more options
                I like turn based games, but people also ignore how it was a style really utilized beause of tech restrictions

                These are one and the same thing. Action games mandate you only control one character, 7r you still control one character regardless of whether you can switch between them or not. Action combat is either 1 char, or reliant on dogshit ai to control 66%+ of your party, and the reality is jrpg players don't like either of these things. They like control of all characters, they like making them do things together, they like putting them all to work to pull of whatever their intended plan or playstyle is as a player. Jrpgs, most rpgs, need to be turn based. There's no two ways around it, and you'll see them either die within the next 1-2 decades or return to being overwhelmingly turn based/atb systems for this exact reason. No amount of shitty trying to appeal to normies will ever work

                The combat system is terrible, it's just the worst parts of 13 with less characters, less equipment options, less abilities. Stagger systems are inherently bad, they make all combat go from every action you make being meaningful to 90% of actions you make being brainless and meaningless, serving no purpose other than to build stagger so you can actually do something meaningful for a few seconds.
                And you're not even using your whole party to defeat any enemy in 7r, you're constantly just tard wrangling because the ai is garbage. We solved this problem SEVENTEEN YEARS AGO with gambits which allowed you to not have to constantly manually tard wrangle your ai so they actually contribute even remotely.
                It's insane that people praise 7rs combat so much because it's honestly almost the worst possible outcome, it would be the worst if 15 didn't exist somehow that was even worse. It has no difficulty, by design it can't have any difficulty because it has to be designed around not tard wrangling every few seconds so that it doesn't drive away normies and worse players from being able to beat it, it has extremely limited options you will not get an enemy skill with 30 different skills in remake, you will not get so many yellow materia that it changes your action menu from one row to three entire rows of abilities, all the cool rpg shit is impossible in an action game.

                By the end of it i will probably prefer 7R because i actually think the game has a party in combat, not a lonely protagonist with his npcs

                This is a retarded comparison anon. No, it's not 'equivalent'. Controlling every single action made by every single character is infact not equivalent to controlling a small percentage of actions of all characters and relying on ai to control the rest, no matter how much you want to believe it is.
                Real fucking easy, lets lay it out. You play a turn based/real atb rpg, you can perform actions in the exact order you want, you get a character to buff, to debuff, to use an item then use an attack all in a specific order - that matters. The first character is available to make an action immediately after you're done, because in atb you can hold their action and in turn based they don't go until the 4th character action has completed. You cannot do this in some shitty ai controlled game, the first character will start doing shit you -did not tell them to do- after they perform the buff you forced them to do. They will not be ready and waiting, they will be fucking shit up and interfering with your strategy. Likewise you cannot perform actions in a specific order, if you do not give a command the ai will do shit instead, forcing your shit out of order or delaying it, so you have to just give them all the order at the same time, which will lead to the things not going off in the correct order. This means shit like tifa attacking without deathblow on or rage not being the last buff applied to give the best outcome in shadow hearts 2.
                And these are the things that make playing rpgs fun in the first place, without them it's no longer fun to play.

                I think that's ridiculous.
                JRPGs got big in the first place because of FF setting the bar and creating the trend.
                Going "ok I guess KH and Dark Souls came out, time to wrap it up" is just cowardly.
                Persona is still successful being a JRPG and FF leaving the scene (now formally with XVI) has already left a hole in the genre that indies are scrambling to fill up.

            Toriyama clearly thinks JRPGs are fundamentally broken as a genre and keeps coming up with the dumbest shit imaginable to 'fix' them.
            Every game he directed is clear proof of this. They're all modern equivalents to FF2 except they're not interesting and they hold your hand for 70% of the game's runtime.

            It's not about destroying, it's about taking over cause he thinks he can do it better, he has the key, and clearly he doesn't.
            Just look at the Sphere Grid vs the Crystarium. Or the way you manage weapons in XIII. Or all of VII:R's plot.

        Not him, the only real movement change was dashing being a little slower when compared to fully upgraded air dash, and that instead of having to do consecutive dashes you could maintain it but with it (and wall running) requiring a bar. It is a little slower directly but it's worth it to make stage positioning actually heavily matter for once, and the game still plays fast. Though if it were truly up to me I would have kept grind rails and the fixed jumps you could do, those really should have stayed especially since in the PSP games they were basically pointless despite how cool they were due to how OP dash was.

            They're going to have to do something to migrate the game to a whole new platform though. PS2 hardware is running out, iirc they had to get their last kits donated to them by other developers who still had some working ones.

            Without those they can't do shit to the game and it will fall apart bit by bit. They're going to need to "refresh" it and tie it closer to XIV's service to keep that money rolling in.

              I don't think they're closing it either. FFXI is pretty cheap to operate all things considered, and they folded the budget into the ffxiv budget anyway. So I really could see a dual subscription at some point. They just need to work out the logistics.

              A graphical overhaul.

              Btw having 11 and 14 in one subscription would also help 14 between patch cycles
              Even if 11 doesnt have any major updates, it could be something interesting to spend time on when people run out of things to do in 14

          Dissidia was his idea from the get-go, it was originally supposed to be a KH game but when Disney said no he changed it to a FF crossover. SoP is also his idea spun off from Dissidia iirc

                Do you know that even the Live a live and chrono trigger director was responsible for writing scenes in the original FF7, but people dont talk about him and i even doubt he appears on wikipedia articles
                Trusting on what a single wikipedia list says about development is ridiculous, even more when nomura chose by hand the director of the project

                So not only he created the project, made the plot, chose the staff and re-designed every character to fit in the new style

      I can’t believe the same guy who wrote the first two wrote this same crap. It is mind blowing, like what happened to make your quality drop so low. Tidus getting his blown off will never not be hilarious though.

      Why? That dissidia gacha adds even the most obscure FF11 character

        Dissidia has almost 180 ff characters, and that anon thinks that zenos being in is weird

          and the last XIV character added was Lyse, almost four years ago. Since then characters that got in over any of the other major XIV characters include: Rubicante, Ursula, Dorgann, Kadaj, Shelke, Braska, Reks, Llyud, Jihl, every single student from Type-0, Ciaran, Jegran, Enna Kros and half the fucking cast of Stranger of Paradise. If they were going to add another big character they would have done it years ago.

            Tbf about the SoP characters. Team Ninja made NT, OO and SoP. The SoP cast are basically their babies/donut-steele OC's.

            The fact Rikku from X hasn't gotten in before half the people you listed, is funny though.

            I know, but the only situation where it gets too late to add a new 14 character is when 14 closes its servers anon

        They don't add characters from Tactics or XIV anymore, only Stranger of Paradise characters and literally whos like Jihl from FFXIII. Tactics and XIV characters also don't recieve FR weapons.

          Yeah there just really isn’t. They would have added a Crisis Core character had SE forced them to promote Reunion, Angeal assets were datamines YEARS ago, along with FF9’s Amarant. Nothing has come out of it even if they had assets designed, they just seem to drop thing instantly and move to someone else at the drop of a dime.

            I think it's also they seem to at least have an idea of what stories they want to tell. And what moments of characters interacting they'd wanna do.
            I'd argue a lot of the characters who just aren't in, the team can't think of, or don't wanna think of a way to put them in the story they're currently telling.

                Aye it's clearly a passion project for those working on it. Still having to abide to some of the gacha rules, but the dev team are clearly just fans of the franchise.

                Nta but gachas are weapons, you can play any character event anytime to get them

                Anonymous

                Pretty much. If you're just in it for the story, then it's easily accessible.
                Past story events tend to be in the Lost Chapters section and Intersecting Wills.
                Be warned the game has no issues with spoiling plots of the games characters are from.

                That being said, you could roll a character from the gacha, gear them out a bit and basically solo most story content these days

                How garden gnomey is the stamina system?

                They shit out stamina and the story doesn't need stamina iirc.
                Only thing that you're locked out of, tends to be group content versions of events if they're up. With a 5 completion stamina/bell system.
                But then they also give you sometimes SP versions of the event content to do as well to grind while your group stamina recharges

    Rinoa=Ultimecia was always amusing, but never made any sense since Ultimecia was explicitly born in a distant future where she was being hunted by SEED from birth.
