With the FF7 Remake coming out, how do you think Square Enix will fuck up the combat system?

It looks like a real-time game now.

>And last time I checked, it was conservative groups that were opposed to crossdressing on "moral" grounds.

When was the last time you checked? The mid 90s? In case you haven't been outside your little retro nostalgia bubble in a couple of decades, you might be surprised to find that the left wing authoritarians are even more likely to play the role of the obnoxious moral guardian than the right wing authoritarians these days. Assuming they don't take the crossdressing segment out of the remake in an attempt to make it more gritty and serious, expect to see these SJW types bitching about it on twitter, claiming it's insensitive to transgender people. Expect the infamously partisan video game journalism websites (like Kotaku, for example) to be reprimanding Squeenix for leaving the potentially "offensive" crossdressing in the game and not being more "inclusive" to transgender folks. Now, maybe you'll have some of the same alarmist shitheads on the right wing side whinging about degeneracy and whatnot, but how many major video game review sites do you know with a right wing bias? Oh yeah, I forgot, you don't know shit about the modern gaming scene. The answer is zero and both sides are fucking moronic either way.

Squeenix has no choice but to use the XV engine for any and all future Final Fantasy games. An engine that big and costing that much money is obviously going to be the go to choice for a developer. Look at Bethsoft and gamebyro.

My point being, even if the people wanted it, and yes I think they do, there's not a snowball's chance in hell the VII remake was ever going to be turn-based.

As for the politically incorrect stuff? Jury is out on that, the Japanese don't care and as long as they don't pull a Nintendo or Team Ninja and fold to Western pressure, should be fine.

Great counter arguments there, guys. Not that I was expecting much more from poorly disguised SJW apologists or anything, but you could at least try.


Basically this. Don't expect rationality from these people. I swear, every single time one of them rears their ugly head, it's all logical fallacies and smear tactics. You get the same shit from butthurt religious people. They'll do anything they can to try to avoid an actual rational debate with you, because they know that all they have is their emotions and their faith in this big dogmatic ideology of theirs.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. I'm honestly quite hopeful for the combat system, I just hope they don't water down the materia and character customisation in the jump from turn based to real time. The main thing that pissed me off about the remake was finding out that they'd be milking it Perter Jackson style and turning it into a trilogy. Not sure why OP didn't bring that up too.

You can remove the story from the gameplay and have still recognise it

If you change the mechanics its a different game all together, its just going to make the story appear weaker if the battle systems been watered down and instantly turn off a majority of the players that played the original because the mechanics were enjoyable.

I 'm referring to the debate that you've been happily participating in over the course of this thread. The same debate that you're now paradoxically saying doesn't belong here and trying to weasel your way out of.

>The gist of this thread is FUCKING SJW SCUM LIIBRUL FEMINISM REEEEEEE... oh, and video games

Nice strawman there. And it's pretty funny too, because most posters in the thread have been focusing on the gameplay part of the topic instead of the crossdressing thing. On top of that, the first person to even touch the SJW part of the topic was an actual SJW or SJW apologist at least (presumably you). It's also pretty funny how my post one one of the posts that happened to magically disappear after I called you out on your bullshit, and I was the one trying to get back on to the topic of the gameplay itself.

Behaviour like this is just pretty typical of SJWs. You have no rationality behind your beliefs and it shows when you bring them into an argument. You come into the thread and start throwing around logical fallacies and personal attacks, trying to derail it with your inflammatory shitposting. And when all the flaws and faulty reasoning in your posts get pointed out, some biased janitor or mod shows up and removes the counter arguments. SJWs using censorship to their advantage yet again because they are too weak minded and deluded to use their heads instead. It's pathetic and it's cowardly. Everybody in this thread seen what happened, so don't try to take the moral high ground.

Where is the FFVI remake? Years ago (before the turn of the century), I could somewhat understand the existence of a camp that thought FF was superior to DQ. It is ridiculous how much this series lacks the consistency of its counterpart.

I own DS2 (my brother gave me his PS3 games when his console crapped out) and IMO, it's unplayable trash. It's like today's gamer enjoys shit games. Either that or spending money on something creates a need to enjoy it. I personally feel I haven't played a good console JRPG since DQ VIII.

>> No.3093104

FFX had arguably some of the best mechanics out of any FF. The designers only really took advantage of it in the battle arena, but the turn queue and having to carefully manipulate it was incredibly fun. Better than ATB in a lot of ways, although both systems rock.

When people say turn-based combat systems are outdated, I think they mean that they've played too many RPGs where not enough was done to build upon the mechanics and gameplay they already recognize. And if there are new features added, they only hinder the game or make it take way too long to play out due to animations/button prompting/etc. Not enough is being done to reinvent turn-based gameplay into something more satisfying and complex from its origins. The only RPGs I can think of that really tried to do more with that system were Shin Megami Tensei, Pokemon (very old and well known, but probably the first to emphasize rotating your party to manage winning), the Mario & Luigi series (unfortunately items have made battles tedious, repetitive, lacking in any strategy, and pointless with drawn out mini-games supplanting attacking and dodging), Mega Man Battle Network (chip data system was brilliant), and others.

Of course the Final Fantasy series is obligated to its fans, but it's also been thirty years since its inception, and we're soon to be FIFTEEN installments in - something has to change!

>> No.3093551

try the GBC Grandia, I thought it had great combat
Baten Kaitos Origins is my favourite ATB battle system (not retro, I know)
Chrono Cross is hated but I loved its battle system and how attacking was tied to elements, and there was no MP to worry about
I also thought the music combos from Mother 3 were a great idea that made even regular encounters fun
Breath Of Fire 4 had the magic combos and switching out characters so the ones in back can restore AP
Loved Live A Live's battles that mixed movement and range as well
Romancing Saga for PS2 is great as well

I prefer turn based battles in general because they usually have more unique twists in their mechanics, while giving the player 100% control over all the characters

I'm still mildly optimistic towards the 7remake and XV

That has nothing to do with the combat mechanics though. It's a problem with the presentation, not the mechanics themselves.


And I agree with this. I didn't think all that much of FFX the first time I played it (largely because I was pissed off that there was no world map). It was only after replaying it later that I realised how good the combat was. The true turn based combat with the turn order is definitely superior to ATB if you ask me. It just makes the battles a lot more strategic when you can see on screen who is going to attack next and plan accordingly. The status effect inflicting attacks in FFX also seemed to be a lot more useful that in the other games, which has always been a problem for the series.

>> No.3093934

>The status effect inflicting attacks in FFX also seemed to be a lot more useful that in the other games

Any other game save FF13. You can't win against fucking ANYTHING in the end game if you aren't status-effecting left right and center. It's like the Final Fantasy that thought it was a Shin Megami Tensei.

It's a shame everyone hates it, though I suspect hardly anyone who hates it actually bothered to finish it.

Most conservatives didn't give a shit about games because they were for children in their minds. Anytime someone shat themselves over games and politics it was liberals who couldn't believe that there were games that let you hit someone. Every time there was shooting (ironically, most of them being caused by liberals) they went on a moral crusade to ban MK, Doom, and any "violent" game they could find. Hell, they even brought shit to the floor.

OP took a dig at a group that goes around infiltrating groups to censor them. They've been hammering away at games, comics, TV, and are even trying to get anime censored. I can't pl. I don't give a shit if you're right or left wing, SJWs are a cancer upon mankind. Fuck off.

Jesus christ. These are the fans Square is catering to with this trash.

If you're gonna make a new combat system, why not just make a new fucking game? If you don't like the combat system, why do you even want to play the game? Unbelievable.

This is gonna be a "remake" in the same way Twin Snakes was a "remake". And it's the fault of the fans and Square who have been treating the possibility of a remake as some kind of wet dream sacred moment, so now Square feels like they can't just put in new models and fully rendered backgrounds and voice acting and call it a day.

IMO every remake should be like the Halo remake and Secret of Monkey Island remake where you can toggle the new graphics and voices off at any time.

First of all, XIII was a ridiculously expensive engine and basically went to waste. Second, using the XV engine doesn't mean it'll have the same combat, that's like saying everything on Unreal 3 has to be a cover shooter. And Bethesda doesn't own Gamebryo, it's a cheap as shit engine they license, and the reason they keep using it is because every game since Oblivion has just been a modified version of Oblivion. They're not gonna pay for a new engine when they can just put a new coat of paint on this ancient piece of shit and it'll sell millions anyway.

The godawful iOS version was their VI remake. I'm not even joking, Square considers that on the same level as the IV DS remake and the VII remake. It's complete bullshit. It's not that they cancelled the V and VI remake after IV DS/PSP, it's that they genuinely think those shitty, lazy iOS games are totally worthy successors and exactly what the fans want. And the sales of the games on iOS and Android are just confirming that belief.

I hope someday fans do a real remake of V and VI in the style of IV PSP but with a better looking artstyle.
