First time seeing a video game marketed with so much emphasis on words "shit" and "fuck" being said throughout the story mode that's not GTA.

Barry, take your medication.
Show on the doll where Barry hurt you, anon.
"Barry" is one of the most forced memes I have ever seen in my 10+ years on Ganker.
>being on Ganker for even longer than one year let alone ten and denying Barry's existence
You sir, ar a liar and a fraud.
Bazzy definitely existed.
Barry it's just a tendie
100% serious grimdark mature game full of violence for mature gamers such as myself!
Truly a man's best friend.
They still make Zelda games for Mormons, guys
>100% serious grimdark mature game full of violence for mature gamers such as myself!
After the tryhard teenage mess that was 15, agreed unironically. Kino.
yoshipiss is reaching out to the new audience
This game looks amazing. Going to usher in another golden age at Square after the failures that were XV and Forspoken.
>Going to usher in another golden age at Square after the failures that were XV and Forspoken
This sounds like something Barry would say for his own game. XIVfags really are just Barry but by the thousands.
There's only a dozen or so of them who are feral I'm fairly sure. Have seen other XIV-fags express sadness at the current state of affairs.
That's not Forspoken.
"I moved shit with my mind, I moved shit with my mind, I moved shit with my mind, I moved motherfucking shit with my mind!!!!"
Gangbangers should have pulled the trigger before she blinded them with pocket sand.
That's journalists, not devs.
Aka retard americans
>"Why you use naughty words now? FF was family friendly game?"

Yet it was a Japanese interview where Yoshida and the team talked about AoT, Berserk, Game of Thrones, tokusatsu references. You are getting really deranged with that siege mentality of yours.
Yeah but for the Japanese interviewers it's a single question in a 5 page interview. For the western journos, it's the headline of their clickbait articles.
FFXVI is so powerful Barry is grasping at straws to make it look bad.
Modern RE does that.
FF16 is simply the meteor the Jenova-Nomura summoned to kill SE so it can be reborn within himself.
Ah, so this is what the Whispers of Stellafag meant by a Rejoining of the Tokyo Team.
It's a shame even Forspoken was also a Shard. Nomura and the Convocation of Versus 13 just had to get that aether back
>Rejoining of the Tokyo Team
>Yuichi Kanemori stopped working at DeNA as Nomura got power back
>Yoshi-P is making use of his KH team talent
>TWEWY and Dissidia finally got good sequels
it's happening isn't it
Stranger of Paradise is hinting hard at a fourth Dissidia game, if Nomura can pull it off after the bad taste NT put in everyone's mouth I'm excited.
It makes me sad that Kujiraoka was a member of the Tokyo Team and sullied his old group. Nomura really shouldn't let them work on one off projects so hastily. Even Mitsunori Takahashi and Abs failed with RRR and Flame X Blaze. And now we have Matsuoka, the gummi ship guy, crashing and burning with The First Soldier.
>The full Tokyo Team could have worked on 7R or even 15
They made mobile games instead
Nomura. Please change this for Rebirth.
He worked on Lightning. Takahashi worked on 012 and 7R briefly.
Yes. Jenova-Nomura wins.
I'll bite. Who is Yuichi Kanemori? What's his thing with Nomura
He was one of the combat planners on KH2 who worked under Nomura.
>It's happening isn't it
Yoshida-fans believe he is Cloud. Truthfully, Tabata is Aeris, but he was not Holy enough and the planet rejected him.
I thought they were called Organization Versus XIII.
>the Ascians are just Matsuno-influenced Org members even without Nomura
I'll see myself out
When Nomura was ousted, Versus 13 broke into six shards—
>Final Fantasy 7 Remake
>Final Fantasy 16
>Stranger of Paradise: FFO
>Kingdom Hearts 3/4
All of my jej
Remember.... remember us... Remember...that we once lived...
>Versus 13 is the Source
>Tabata is the Song of Oblivion
>Nomura had to defend himself against it
Shouldn't this be Stella? Stellafag is just Emet-Selch at this point.
Also this is her type of game. FF16 is like Versus but with Matsuno instead of Nomura. You can tell Tabata wanted Type-0 to look like this so bad
Fucking stimky bintch
Why is Jill so smug?
Because she's Stella and she owns it
>Jill looks like Stella
She's going to die, isn't she? Is the leak where Clive has to kill every Dominant still true?
The leak is fake bro.
Jill kills Clive.
That's just anon's headcanon cause he thinks its epic in a tragic sort of way.
No, I advised against it.
>Stellafag is just Emet-Selch
>He won't stop talking during the MSQ
>Shadowbringers is the most Nomura style 14 expansion
Kek so the monologues were his writeups the whole time lol
The delusions of those who don't understand what has happened will continue until it is over. SE will die. Nomura will take it all and start anew.
>VAGRANT STORY 2 SOONh
What does Vagrant Story have to do with Nomura or Stellafag?
I don't know, you're going to have to spam your fanfiction again just in case.
Once SE dies, all of the energy goes back to the planet. Jenova-Nomura has placed himself right there at the roots. He will receive the energy himself.
FF XI was the temple. XIV was the black materia. XIII was Shinra's part in the play...
Is that "leak" that gets posted around real or was it just a shop. The one where anon knew Cauron's name and so on in advance.
Real post. Whether it's a real leak or what part is real etc. is up to you to decide (I don't know.)
t. was in the thread
Thanks anons, I hope you have a nice day.
Leaker got one character and her name right, but same leaker also made contradictory statements.
It's real most of those question are from me
Yes, this is leaker-questioner. I trolled him a little by pretending to be another leaker but I was too obvious/gave up the game. It was still fun!
So which points from that leaks were made by (you)
None of my posts were screen-capped. I simply said that Jill kills Clive at the end and this is what Revenge truly means. "The revenge of love against lovers."
The reason? Because Clive's powers come from that ancient civilization, he is their weapon.
My leak is, of course, likely to be true as well. But it's simply too unbelievable.
I don't believe you but it sounds kino
It's better to not believe. You will forget in time anyway.
How underageb& are you? Right off the top of my head I can think about the egregious marketing surrounding that greasegoblin elf from Dragon Age.
It's just Barry.
FF16 will sell 5 million units by the first week, trust the plan
And SE will still call it "lackluster" because they expect 10-20 million units sold.
Doubt it, Sony literally paid for the development costs
They also did for Forspoken.
The problem Is that they expected More from forespoken
S-E is still chasing the Hogwarts Legacy/CyberPunk 2077/Elden Ring numbers. They are their own worst enemy
FFXVI will usher in the golden age at Square and all Barry can do is seethe and OBSESSE about it.
They need to do something about this cinematic strike bullshit. They either need to remove it or make it more intricate than just a single button press with what feels like 10 seconds of latency.
Agreed, it just seems too easy. They should also randomize the button prompt and make it go faster in NG+ or something.
In all honesty it reminded me of Asuras' Wrath but with more detailed spectical.
I'm sure the long ass timer was because of journalist mode.
IIRC they also said there are less QTE's later in the game.
If it was faster it would for real make the Icon fights much more intense than what was displayed in the 45 minute gameplay showcase.
>IIRC they also said there are less QTE's later in the game.
I do hope that this is correct.
>it's another "it gets better 40 hours into the game jrpg shitfest"
That's how the devs justify these 30-60 hour games.
Imagine the outrage if FF17 turned out to be a 12 hour action-adventure game.
>Seconds qtes somehow increase the time in hours
Play Nioh 2.
Is this dlc? Which reminds me I really need to play the dlc for both 1 and 2. I love nioh
Yea, DLC for 2. Think it's the second one. This one's from the first one.
>there'll be less as the story continues
Kinda baffled as to why put them in the first place besides the interactive cinematic aspect, it's like they changed their minds about QTE's mid development or something.
Probably because early game (and unlike in the media tour demo) you'll only have access to Phoenix and then Garuda. The QTEs are there to serve as "moment of awesome" setpieces before you unlock enough of the toolkit to pull off big combos and eikonic ability chains.
The eikon circle abilities also seem to have contextual uses and probably take the place of the QTEs later on for "moments of awesome".
Like using the Garuda's circle ability right when the first half of the stagger bar breaks turns it into a takedown/stun.
So far we have:
Phoenix - Phoenix Shift (gap closer)
Garuda - Deadly Embrace (enemy puller/stun when stagger bar half depleted)
Titan - Titanic Block (maybe a royal guard like counter if enough stuff is blocked while it's up?)
Ramuh - Blind Justice (???)
Shiva - Cold Snap (aerial dodge that seems to build freeze status stacks)
Odin - Arm of Darkness (???)
Bahamut - ???
Leviathan - ??? (if she's even in)
>Odin - Arm of Darkness (???)
I AM THE STORM THAT IS APPROACHING
Love the dude launched up spinning
You fight Odin at level 37 so I am guessing the cap is 50, but are we really only getting his powers late game?
You get Garuda's powers before actually fighting her so who knows how it goes.
Maybe Clive tricks/convinces Barnabas he's on his side and can draw the Odin powers from him long before you fight him in his Odin form.
Odin seems to have a charge up gauge so I'm guessing that's for Zantetsuken.
It was color code so I can see an option to remove button prompt
Nomura and Yoshida are friends. They're likely going to get equal power. I wonder what Ascians they are
>Sephirot and Cloud are friends
I thought Sephiroth was Motomu cringe Toriyama
Yes, well...Nomura is Jenova but the Nomura that other anon sees is Jenova as Sephirot.
SAY MY NAME
SAY MY NAME
Until I see more waifus I'm withholding excitement.
finally a FF game with fun combat and more importantly an actual game i can get for my ps5
honestly it'll be the first time in a long time i power on my PS5
I really want Gerudo to jack me off and rip my spine out
I've only ever heard it once. Imagine being triggered by that
>20 page Famitsu article tomorrow
>Panel at PAX next week
Guess the marketing train is gaining speed.
I am prepared for cringe (no kino).
Producer Yoshida San...Prease...No more Live Action Commercials.
I think this one is going to be Sony. Higher budget than usual.
how about more tokyo drip in your fantasy setting?
Sony-san PREASE NOOOO
BECOME WHAT YOU MUST
I'm surprised that Sony didn't force diversity in FF16 since they're funding it's development. Maybe in a future DLC we'll see more diverse characters?
>DLC: Flower continent
>It's not-Japan, no blacks only Japanese
>>20 page Famitsu article tomorrow
Oh but this is previews news, not new news
They always give Famitsu some scoops they don't give to anyone else.
Comes with the automatic 38+/40 scores.
Nomura FF house has assembled.
What do you expect? 16 and Versus 13 are dark political anime chuuni action RPGs. I call 16 'Versus 10'.
I want Clive to rape me
That should be Barry's new Twitter bio
Remember when Bazzy wanted to rape that Versus fangirl a long time ago? He's would be into that.
I remember that, if only because Stellafag kept reminding him about it this one thread years ago.
She must not be forgotten.
>about it this one thread
This display of autsim?
Yeah. That's the thread where the incident happened. Stellafag reminded Barry a few years later and kept insisting it was his butt buddy Nathan.
Naive and nubile, ANGRY AND EDGY or determined and reflective Clive?
Angery and edgy
>Angery and edgy
K I N O
Will there be morons in this game, I can see that theirs women which makes me cum alot but if there were morons I'd be able to experience a new dimension of hatred
Yoshit-Piss said there's only white people in the game (one of his few good decisions).
One of the MCs is gay.
Absolutely pig-disgusting guess I'm not playing this game then
It's fake news bro.
Why lie? It was a confirmed leak.
Fake leak bro.
It takes a strong man to deny what's in front of him.
Oh no, he mixed two anime characters doing it, let us disregard the fact he knew the name of a notable NPC and what they do in the game. Dion's is gay, end of.
Partially confirmed. Leaker contradicted himself with regards to Clive/Jill romance and sex scenes so really, nothing's legit unless confirmed afterwards.
Only in the live action commercial kek.
Right > Left.
Obviously right is larger, by a large magnitude as well. That is a hefty creature.
My friend is going to PAX to ask them if there are any LGBT characters.
Versus 13 should've ran on an updated version of KH2's engine that would've been ported to the PS3. Early on in development, Nomura should've scrapped the idea of a seamless overworld and went with a semi-open world approach.
>Nomura should've scrapped the idea of a seamless overworld and went with a semi-open world approach.
So pretty much FF12 meets KH2, huh.
just like FF16
eh Nomura could've finished Versus 13 had he convinced the upper management to cancel a PSP/DS KH game and converted VS13 into a PSP game.
This is supposedly the Tokyo Team. I don't think that it's possible to make another game with the exact combat system as Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix
In the Gamewatch interview Yoshida mentions that the core Clive combat was done entirely in CBU3, but for the Eikon battles they had help from the KH team and also outside affiliated studios.
One of them is going to be an on rails Gummi Ship shooter isn't it?
one of the Eikon fights might be similar to a Dark Souls boss
It would be funny as fuck if the KH team's contribution was just a gummi ship copypasta.
That would shut up the Versus XIII schizos here.
Osaka Team is the current KH team. Osaka is garbage and would be better far away from this game, in fact far away from the industry entirely.
I remember someone saying that (who played the preview), that the pheonix kaiju fight might be similar to that...
more S-E devs
That's just everyone who worked on KH2.
Surprising, a lot are under CBU3 right now
The Forspoken/FFXV team, are they going to assist other CBUs or will S-E give them one more game?
They're going to be on code monkey/non-critical art assets support duty for sure.
Luminous engine is dead, all future endeavours are going to be either Unreal or FFXVI's Radec Engine.
Reminds me of CDPR abandoning REDengine for Unreal after cyberflop.
I don't like Unreal. Everything running on that engine starts to look samey, especially when it comes to lighting.
I mean, it makes sense, but when almost everything starts to use the same engine, you start to appreciate the differences some in-house engines bring to the table.
You're right on the downside of using UE, alongside the shader stutter and middling optimization. However it is efficient compared to the numerous in-house engines that brought headaches and caused development troubles.
Not really, no.
That's just devs being lazy and using defaults, instead of modifying the stuff. aka. lack of actual art direction.
looks like CBU1 and 3 will be receiving all the tech from luminous engine as it's being decommissioned. Maybe they'll break it down and borrow the useful components and discard the junk
As long as they don't borrow the lighting.
People complain about FFXVI being "dark", but I'd rather have dark than everything being backlit with blue-white light.
for a "next gen" only game this looks embarrassing, and the ray traced shadow couldn't save it
my PS5 arrived today. any good games on this thing while waiting for FFXVI? the last console I owned was the 360.
Just playing old PS4 games. The console really isn't that good 2 years in.
guess I'll just get the ghost of tsushima remaster then. thanks fellas.
the fuck is sony doing? they used to have so many good exclusives during the PS2 era.
Sony isn't willing to fund a lot of indie or AA games as often, combined with their strategy of releasing games on PC.
Stuff like GoW Ragnarok, Horizon Forbidden West etc. were all supposed to be next gen PS5 exclusive system sellers. Covid and the woldwide microchip shortage fucked up PS5 production and everything was changed to crossgen.
If it wasn't for the PS5 shortage (especially in Japan) FFXVI would have likely released last December.
it's hilarious that the PS4 has exclusives while the PS5 is a wasteland
The first thing to understand is that all AAA games in the past two years are PS5 games, only also released on PS4 to run like shit on it.
I had fun with Hogwarts though I wouldn't recommend it unless you like Harry Potter.
nuGow was better than I expected for it being shit on so hard. Ghost of Tsushima is very nice too, instant fast travel load times of PS5s are a godsent.
the only two new exclusives are PSVR 2 games, otherwise nothing
FF Stranger of Paradise my good anon.
>You know exactly what I want!
Between XVI and Rebirth, SEchads are eating good.
Now that they've cut all the western cancer out, I think we're entering a new golden age of flawless kino.
Only if Symbiogenesis fails. If it somehow succeeds that cancer will grow to infect everything.
I'm not doomposting anon, I'm legit scared that we got rid of Luminous and Matsuda only to get something even worse at the top of corporate SE.
This guy is like Bobby Kotick. Nothing to do with vidya, hopping through the corporate world looking for high short term gains.
He looks like a Yakuza villain working in corporate only to out himself at the end of the game as the big bad guy, removing his glasses, slicking back his hair and revealing a full back tattoo.
I wonder if he at least has Matsuda's sense of humor to allow himself to be turned into secret boss fights.
Nomura should put Gambits in 7 Rebirth.
XVI will crash SE with no survivors. Nomura will continue VIIR however...he is well poised to take full control with a new studio and all the talent under him: Nomura Studios.
Can't help but notice similarities between FF16 and the canceled Versus XIII
>Main character is royalty on a revenge mission
>Countries have their own crystals and each one has a summon representing them
>Dog party member
>Cid gives a very similar vibe to the 2013 trailers Cor
>warping around during combat
>Not afraid to be a bit more mature in terms of using blood or killing off characters which was something shown in Versus trailers too
You forgot political intrigue and social commentary. Matsuno and Yoshi-P like those in his games (16 is honorary Matsuno). Nomura was going to add those too in Versus 13.
There is also a hooded mysterious figure, first time I saw him he instantly reminded me of the hooded guy from early versus trailers.
I guess there were nothing original about that game, too.
Ravus was robbed
Clarus was butchered far more than Ravus. His role in the story aside, his design was utterly GUTTED compared to how he originally looked. At least Ravus kept some of the original themes and aesthetics to his design.
I don't like how Regis was redesigned
None of the redesigns were even decent. What was Tabata even thinking approving these?
He was too busy turning it into a multimedia project and appealing to the newcomers (casual gamers)
Exactly. These redesigns seem to be why Roberto Ferrarri left with Nomura. He had misunderstanding after misunderstanding with Yusuke Naora, who did the bulk of redesigns.
Naora left Square Enix after 22 years at the company in 2016-2017. Square still reached out to him for art stuff for their mobile games, but he was never contavted for 7R even if he was the art director for the original game.
>He had misunderstanding after misunderstanding with Yusuke Naora
I remember him saying that on his facebook page like half a decade ago but everything has been purged now. I wish they would just come out and openly talk about what happened back then so we can get some fucking closure on this saga.
Nomura is definitely going to milk it. I wouldn't be surprised if he made his experiences the plot of Verum Rex in the end like those Whispers of Stellafag say he is.
The english localization was doomed once since they brought on Koji Fox to handle it. This redditor produces sub-crunchyroll-tier localizations filled with stale jokes, memes, lore errors, omissions and sprinkles them with some fan-fiction to Hispanice things up.
Every single translation in FFXIV is consistent with the Japanese translation EXCEPT English, because they have a 'direct relationship' with the lore team, and nobody checks his work (nobody at SE gives a fuck about english) so Koji's team can do whatever they want.
When you're playing XIV, you're reading fan fiction filtered through this glorified english teacher gentlesir and the same story is going to play out with XVI.
I'm not saying you're wrong about ffxiv, but, in ffxvi the script was written in Japanese, rewritten in English, and then that translation was translated to Japanese so it can match the JP dubbing. The "og" script is already gone.
Yes, it's pre-bogged by mr. Fox. Just so the Japanese can also suffer his tripe.
Crazy how this ugly bastard is getting away with raping FF. Just like in my hentai.
To be fair he got it fairly late. 14 is already WALLED territory. The chad ugly bastards move much faster.
they finally updated the english site
It's a shame they went with the modern UX shtick.
