Anyone else see previews/gameplay video of the game??? I saw some at gamespot, and other places, the game looks outstanding, even if PS2 doesn't have the best graphics that can beat Xbox, but the FMV's that was shown in the trailer/preview was like, 'wow'.

Also, with the many other Final Fantasy stuff comming out, Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children (which looks wow), FF7: Before Crisis (i think only in Japan, but lucky me:)), FF7: Dirge of Cerberus (seen a video, looks good so far), and i think thats it, i'm loving Square :)

Possible Spoilers






Is that Midgar everyone's hanging out at? Cause I read somewhere that all the Meteor/Holy survivors were living in Kalm, but the background looks a lot like Midgar.

.:Lemon:.
November 8th, 2004, 01:12 PM
Yeah, it looks very much like Midgar. I read the script for the first few scenes a while back and I think it said that they were back in Midgar. (But I can't remeber too well...plus it had been translated directly from Japanese so it didn't make much sense 0_o)

But anyways...cool pics :D I think Vincent looks especially good!

Elwe Singollo
November 8th, 2004, 01:34 PM
Yah, i think its Midgar. I really like what they done with the Church that Aerith had her garden. It doesn't look like we will be seeing Elena :(

.:Lemon:.
November 8th, 2004, 01:38 PM
Nope. I quite liked Elena aswell....

Elwe Singollo
November 8th, 2004, 01:41 PM
Ok, one thing that annoyed me, people (well at my school that is) acted like they knew everything, and said the silver hair dude (the one that seems to be the leader of the three) was Sephiroth, which obviously wasn't, since they showed Sephiroth, which looked nothing like the other dude. Sorry, i just had to express that, haha...

Lexx
November 9th, 2004, 05:32 AM
The silver haired guy is most definantly not Sephiroth. People I know have been speculating that maybe he's a clone Hojo created or is somehow related to Jenova. But he's not Sephy.

Poor Elena. She was my favorite Turk, but it looks like she's not going to be in it. I read somewhere that she was killed when Meteor was laying the smackdown on Midgarbut that was only mentioned once on a message board and never confirmed, so who knows.

I wonder if Junon is an even bigger city now that Midgar is in ruins?

.:Lemon:.
November 9th, 2004, 07:38 AM

Elena...Dead?! that better not be true, haha, she better be on vacation :D

SaberBlade
November 9th, 2004, 06:05 PM
Elena being dead isn't true. i read that Tetsuya Nomura (AC director) said in an interview that she is still alive. i would expect her to be in it because there is no reason to bring her up and not show her in the movie.

the silver haired guy is not Sephiroth. it has been confirmed that he is not Sephiroth.

But thanks for sharing us the Elena news :D I saw some clips, and wow, the only character (main from the game) that i didn't see was cait and sith :( Maybe we'll see Reeve instead :D

thats possible about Reeve but is seems they are not going to be in it. it looks like they are being kept for Vincents new game, Dirge of Cerberus which has Cait Sith (but no giant moogle)

Lexx
November 10th, 2004, 07:08 AM
I'm glad there's finally confirmation one way or the other regarding Elena. Especially since it's confirming she's still alive :D

I think I'd rather see Reeve walking around all bada** in his suit with a handgun then Cait Sith.

Elwe Singollo
November 10th, 2004, 01:18 PM
Yes, Reeve deserved tons more screentime in the game, haha!

The problem i have with FF 7: Dirge of Cerberus so far, is probably Vincent's shoes, haha.

I know its an odd question as this is not a video game forum, but I just got the game today and I wanted to play with people who had similar interests, so... anyone got it?

September 17th, 2005, 10:38 AM
My friend keeps trying to make me get it. He's been trying for a fair few months now :p I do want it, but I don't really have the money for a video game right now. I've played most of the other FFs though.

SO any thoughts anyone????

October 7th, 2005, 07:50 AM
It was very meh. Not worthy of being called Final Fantasy 7. It seems like they always screw up FF movies. There was no plot in this. It was 2 hours action, 5 minute story. The action was great, graphics were the best I've ever seen, story was bad. We see Sephiroth for 5 minutes? Boo. I haven't seen the FF5 movie but I hope it isn't like FF7:AC or FF:Spirits Within.

Metarock Sam
October 7th, 2005, 10:54 AM
I thought the storyline was great even though sephiroth appeared only for a short while he still left an impace through a couple of flashback scenes aswell.

Theres an ff5 movie ???

....I didn't know they made FF movies, can someone give me some kind of link to something on seven?!?!? Or any other FF movies???http://www.adventchildren.net/ this page shows alot of info about the movie. The american version should be out soon, but the website should say.

The other FF movie, FF: The Spirits Within was a bit more of a 'sci fi' movie with no mention of magic or anything that i enjoyed about the games. Although it had very good reviews, it wasnt a big box office winner, more like a loser. :(

And yah, what the hell.. FF5 movie? Explain to us what your talking about.

I thought the movie could have been better, but i was satisfied anyway. I wasn't really caring for Seph. to come anyway, i guess that was a bonus when he did.

Urgh FF: The Spirits within. The only thing consistent with anything to do with Final Fantasy was to do with the fact that it had a person called Cid in it.

Thats how different the movie is from the games. Overall, i think it was a bad decision for Squaresoft to make the movie, which resulted in the merge with Enix, not my favorite 'other' company.

SaberBlade
October 12th, 2005, 09:05 AM
Final Fantasy 5 does not have a movie. there was a 4 part OAV anime made (making FF5 the first main series game to have sort of spinoff) and it was set 500 years after the main movie. it was officially endorsed by Square making it part of the FF5 timeline

like some OAVs, its possible that it was merged into 1 and called a movie but its originally 4 seperate anime episodes.

the merger with Enix wasn't really anything to do with the movie, Enix bought Square. thanks to the DVD sales, Square made most of their money back which was improved on by the sales of Final Fantasy X-2

I hope they don't botch up the new battle system in FF12....Other than that, it looks cool. Also, Advent Children was breathtaking....the graphics and fight scenes are amazing...esp those with Vincent. There is also an anime that's supposed to come out with the DVD of Advent Children called Last Order, about Zack/Cloud's escape from the Shinra Mansion, thats cool to...

That stinks! :-( I wonder what the hold up is? But thanks for the info! :D

something i wrote on another forum about the delays

where to start. Matsuno is running the FF12 project (like Kitase and the compilation project) but Itou (FF6 codirector with Kitase and the FF9 direct) was directing the game. Itou left, and replacement had to be found. (delay 1) Matsuno took over and things were going fine until he got sick and he had to be replaced (delay 2). Itou returned and is now co-directing with Minagawa (art director for FFTA) but since Matsuno was running the project, his position as that had to be replaced (delay 3) and they now have Akitoshi Kawazu overseeing the project.

thats just recently. going further back, Sakaguchi , FF's creator left Square (delay 4), so did Uematsu so that wouldn't have affected anything really to do with the game but even FF12s art director Hideo Minaba resigned from Square-Enix (delay 5). all 3 decided to set up their own companies. plus, FF12 was scheduled for a release but got delayed (delay 6) because of loading times during the game were taking to long (thats the reason i remember). it was either DQ8 or DQ5s PS2 remake, an Enix game, but FF12 was supposidly delayed because they didn't want 2 games released around the same time because fans wouldn't be torn between buying 1 of the other (delay 7)

December 7th, 2005, 06:39 PM
FF7 is the best :D It's amazing that a game with crappy graphics can out do all the new games that come out. It's a very beautiful game. The story from the very start hooks you. I read somewhere that America took it off the shelves after 9/11 because it "promotes" terrorism. The music is amazing, everytime I hear it I just feel at peace. The character development is the best I've ever seen in a game, that's why so many people love it because RPGers love story and characters over gameplay and graphics.

The other FFs just didn't do it for me like 7. Sure I liked them and played them a lot but they just didn't have that special something 7 did. I didn't like 8, it annoyed me, the characters were poor, the graphics were ok, the story was ok but it just didn't do it for me. 9 was excellent, a little long. 10 wasn't as good as people made it out to be. X-2 is good, three hot chicks in as little clothes as possible, who wouldn't like that? :P 5 and 6 were a little boring but playable. Haven't played 11 because of the monthly payment thing, maybe I will play it when I get a job.

I loved Squalls Gunblade, too.

http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c340/jenova_1985/My/Squall4.jpg

But talking about great weapons I'd pick Lulu from FFX. The mogles are so cute!

http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c340/jenova_1985/My/Lu2.jpg

X I loved a lot, too. Bc Lu is my absolutely favorite chara. She's always so strong and stoic and very sexy. :D Love her.

As for FF7 I wish I lived in Japan for they have the Complication of FF7.
'FF7 Dirge of Cerberus' is to be released soon and they already have 'Before Crisis'. :(
And of course the movie 'Advent Children'. Sephi looks so darn good in this one *sigh*
But the best thing about AC is the music! I adore Nabuo Uematsu. The first thing I got after watching the movie was the OST.
So. Love. It.

Jenova Synthesis
December 8th, 2005, 02:04 AM
Hi there everybody. *waves*
I've already seen the the movie so I can tell you some facts. If you don't wanna be spoiled don't go on reading.




- the city is Midgar but the story takes place outside at the edge of Midgar
- the leader of the silver haired gang is called Kadaj (the other two are Yazoo and Loz) and indeed he is Sephi; he is a clone and is about to develop into Sephi
- therefor they need 'Mother' which is Jenova
- ShinRa is still there and so is Elena (as all the other Turks); even Rufus is still alive; they want to build the ShinRa Company up again
- all the FF7 charas are in the movie including Aerith, Zack, Sephi, Jenova, Marlene
- the places you can see are Midgar, the ancient city Ajit, the sleeping forest, the church in sector 5, Tifa's bar, north crater

Ascended Times.2
December 8th, 2005, 03:20 AM
My definate fav is 8, although I must admit, 7 is a damned close call, followed by 9...sorry, 9 just didn't cut it in my big book of FF...never played below 7, and 10 actually had a good storyline...X-2....WTF!? Three really hot chicks in hooker-clothing...my first FF virgin friends, when they saw FFX-2 said.

"So, THAT'S what Final Fantasy is...P~~N!" *sigh* I had to explain several times about the other games, fianlly they actually believe me about the other games...still, does ANYONE know what they had in mind for X-2????

Note: I absolutely adore Seifers gunblade!
(And seifer himself! The entire look is just so awesome!)

Seifer is pretty cool.
From 8 I like Edea the most. Awesome look.

http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c340/jenova_1985/My/Edea14.jpg

Honestly I don't know what they had in mind with X-2. It's great but it's not like the other FF games. I have to admit without looking up the solution I would have not been able to find Tidus.
The three girls were hot but my fave is Lu and they left her out. She would have been hot in these cloths, I tell ya!

My fave Lu pic

One of the greatest things about FFX is the music.
As all the other FF musics. I love Nabuo Uematsu.
Especially love the J-E-N-O-V-A and OneWingedAngel theme from 7.
OneWingedAngel was taken to make a Wraith vid. Great comparison between Wraith and Sephi.

I found the movie to be ok.... I was expecting alot less considering I dont particualy like FF games all that much (except FF6 the music/story/atmoshphear/characters made me forget about the boring gameplay)

however the movie was basicly Cloud Cloud Cloud and Cloud with some Tifa/Rufus thrown in then the.. other...guys...who did practicly nothing

come on Red 13 only said 1 thing in the entire movie and that was ''ROAR''

but some of the fanservice was funny (such as the FF7 battle music playing during a certain fight then after the fight is won the FF fanfare music plays)

I have to say I love this movie but it's pretty tough to understand.

I do love philosophy so FF7 is like a tresure chest for me.

The one game it's based on didn't have good grapics but people liked the stroy of the game.
Seproith in the movie as said by the movie wanted to make everthing go away. He found out that he was an experment useing jenove cells and thought that his mother was Jenova. In Rage he burned down Cloud and tifa's hometown and almost killed Tifa Cloud then snuck up and killed sepiroth. Then Cloud and his friend Zack who was once friends with Sepiroth were captured by Hojo who then expermented on them with Jenova cells. Eventually Zack broke out and took cloud and ran for Midgar. Cloud was in a dase while the events of there escape just as Zack carryed Cloud to the front of midgar Zack heard gun shots put down Cloud and fought Shinra men but was killed by them and Sinra just left cloud there. Cloud then got confused and merged his memories with the stroies zack had told him. After cloud meet with Tifa he meet new friends and when he got captured trying to save one of his friends Areis he and his friends along with Aries look to find out why there door was open and who killed sinra people. When they went to see the president of sinra they found him dead and a long sword in him and cloud knew that only one person could wield it sepiroth.
Long story short Sepiroth killed Aries who was an Ancient and tried to be come a god by asobing the Mako energy of the earth by useing a Meteor to cause a wound but the planet stoped the meteor and cloud killed Sepiroth again.

I've only played VII, VIII, IX, X and X-2. My personal favourite is Final Fantasy X though because Auron is so kick ass :) and so's Jecht lol

I've only ever completed X and X-2 out of all of them (my PSOne broke, dont hurt me!:() I know that one of my brothers thinks that VIII is the best, where as another brother likes IX. Hmmmm...Anyways, this thread is basically for friendly discussion about anything Final Fantasy, that might include: Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy the movie, the movie after VII.....um...Hmmmm.....oh yeah, the Gameboy games! :) But mainly we want to talk about the games: :)

Final Fantasy
Final Fantasy II
Final Fantasy III
Final Fantasy IV
Final Fantasy V
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy XI
Final Fantasy XII
Final Fantasy XIII???

And anymore that have been made...My hands hurt now....

So what do you guys think of the games?

Final Fantasy is the ULTIMATE RPG series...I have to say FFVII would be the best, I mean, Vincent...nuff said. That said FFIX comes close. I also greatly enjoyed FFX up until You find out Tidas is a dream...and then the final boss, Yu Yevon...gimmie a break, 1 quick-hit from Auron and what happens? *overkill*... But, regardless of this, it still provides great entertainment and the sphere system allows for much replayability.

I joined the FF fandom with VII really....and even then, I only got around to buying it a year or two ago (I never had a PSX, then got a PS2).

Still haven't finished it, but that's just been a matter of time constraints, not boredom. Absolutely fantastic game, I've loved every second of it. Even the time I accidentally picked a fight with Emerald Weapon without realizing what it was!

On the strength of 7 alone, I bought 8, 10, 10-2, 12 (collector's ed. box :D)and I just picked up 9 on ebay the other day. Of these others the only one I've cracked into is X...and while the intro video is ubercool and the setting is fantastic, I've found I'm really not enjoying it as much as VII. Maybe it'll get better, I've only gotten as far as having to play blitzball so I know I'm not very far into it. I think I may even just forget about it for a while, polish off VII and then work my way through the titles successively.

Oh, and some quick thoughts on the films...

The Spirits Within was lame....really, really lame. Not only did it lack the epic grandeur which has come to characterize the Final Fantasy name, but frankly it just really wasn't all that interesting. I can think of maybe two memorable scenes from the whole movie, apart from that it was a massive snoozefest. No wonder Square Pictures went bankrupt.

Like I just finished saying in my games post though, I haven't finished FFVII yet so I've been avoiding Advent Children and all possible spoilers for it like the plague :D

I dont realy enjoy FF that much...

the last FF game I enjoyed was 6...

the only FF games I like are

FF3
FF5
FF6

and thats it...(could careless for the rest honestly except a few characters which I would rather have had put into a GOOD game IMO)


however I love Vivi(who is one of my fav video game characters to date), Yuffie(I have a thing for cute ninja girls), Auron and Balthier(do I need to explain) despite the fact I hate the games they are in

Vivi was kickass and I just loved his part of the plotline and I found myself completing the game just to find out what happens to the cute little bugger

Ditto for Yuffie...

and Auron and Balthier just kick ass


and in all honesty I would rather play SMT:Nocturne or any Tales game over a ff game

Well, down here in Aus we don't get FFXII until next year sometime...quite ridiculous really...I must also agree that Vivi is one of the greatest Final Fantasy characters, second only to Vincent. Plus, you should get around to finishing FFVII as it has, IMO, the best ending. The ending of FFX was kinda annoying, don't get mestarted on FFVIII, sure, the game play is fine, don't have any major problems with it, but that ending bored me to no end... I can't remember the ending to FFX-2, even though I spent exhaustive amounts of time getting those ridiculous looking and uber dress spheres...

most FF games are to easy -_-

FF7-10 included ((FF11 is a MMORPG and doesnt count)

even the overpraised FFtactics is to damn easy and that game is ment to be a stratergy rpg

FFtactics is basiclyTactics Ogre without the tactics and stratergy involved

FF(excluding optional boss's aside as those are ment to be super hard...) hasnt been hard since FF5...


and FF10-2 was trash except for the battle system(why couldent they have used this battle system in FF9...I would have liked it alot more)

FFVII hands down. Easily the greatest game ever made. I spent so long trying to beat Ruby and Emerald weapons, but it was so worth it. I loved everything about that game. I'm gonna have to play it again in the next few years just... because!

The only other one that grabbed my attention was VIII but i grew weary of drawing magic after a while. The story was good and i loved the Lionheart... symbol and the move. :rolleyes:

i dident like 9 you dident get points for beating bosses

I didnt like 7 because of the crap characters(excluding Yuffie as shes a cute ninja girl) and plotline but thats just my opinion oh and the character graphics out side of battle made my eyes bleed

the art direction looks horrid as well:sephy not only was a boring villan he looks like a manwhore(though atleast he wasnt wearing a thong like Kuja...but atleast Kuja had personality)

though it gets points for having Cloud cross dress, along with being able to go on a date with Barret and having sephy kill off the annoying healer girl you wish to die in every game

and I didnt like FF9 either because I only liked Vivi and the chocobo sidequest(how can you not love chocobos)

thankgod they didnt nerf the difficulty in the FF3 remake like they did with the GBA ports of FF1+2 and FF4

*waits for FF3 to come out later this month*

To me the best game was ff seven, it was just the best. Ff 8 and ff9 was good. ff10, although I have almost completed it, I did not really enjoy it that much. It was sought of the structure of the game I did not like, I mean why in final fantasy seven was very open and you sought of had to find out where to go and what to do, which I enjoy very much, in ff10 it was just all just to here where you need to go and now get their, to level base to me, which I was not to keen on, may be it was me. Have not played ff 10.2, because I have been told by so many people it was just lame and boring, although just for the sake of completing as many of the ff games as possible I might buy it when I see it for like a fiver or something. Also ff6 I have played and almost completed, cannot get pass the final boss, thought that game was good to.

So, can someone who has FFXII explain how the new battle system works? I'm quite curious to know how it affects overall gameplay.

DigiFluid
November 11th, 2006, 09:07 PM
So, can someone who has FFXII explain how the new battle system works? I'm quite curious to know how it affects overall gameplay.

Well, there's no battle mode a la FF7 in FFXII. You can see the various monsters and creatures as you run around. They have a health bar above them (I can't remember if this is by default or if it's one of the Technicks you pick up), and if the baddie's bar is orange that means they'll attack you if they see you vs. when it's green and you can run right past them should you choose.

You select an enemy to fight and Vaan will draw his weapon. If you hold down L2 the camera tracks the enemy, that is, the enemy is kept constantly in the background while Vaan is constantly in the foreground so that you can circle and run about easier without losing track of your target.

This is not all as fast paced as it seems, when you're picking your target one of the options is to freeze the game when you have the menu open....ie hit X, game pauses as the menu comes up on bottom left of screen, you pick "Attack" and you can scroll thru which one you want to focus on, and when you select it the game resumes.

As always, there's a charge-up time between your attacks which is influenced by your EXP, your weapons (etc). But because the combat occurs in real-time, that means you can use the charge time to try to avoid getting hit back by your target. Doesn't work very well, in my experience, but I've only clocked about 5 hours in it so I'll have to see if that changes at all.

The combat also keeps in tune with all other FF games via exp/mp, which you get each time you knock off a creature. Some creatures also drop items (rather than taking them after the battle like in FF7), which can very easily be sold for gil at any number of places.

My Fav. is 8 (Hated the last boss though) I loved that ship and Squall was the best character in the Games.

FF7 is my second favorite game, didn't like the Graphics. The Story was good and Sepiroth is my Favrite Villan, Dark, Heartless, and does not want to rule the world he wanted to use it to become somthing more powerful.

FF9 was not all that great though I liked the Scene with Alexander takeing down Bahmant. Oh and I thoght ViVi was the best in the Game next to Beatrix.

FF10 good game Iliked the Sphere system, good way to learn abillites, and I liked the Aeons. Auron Rocked!!!

FF10-2 was a bad one though I liked the Secret Ending it fixed 10's ending.

FF12 I got it friday good setup though the Battle system brings the game down. But I like it, the Grapics were good and the Lisense system is the best.

I've only played 6,7,8 and 9 but I reckon 8 is the best. I love the characters and to be honest I can identify with Squall the most. Plus I WANT A GUNBLADE!!! They're just sooooooooooooo cool! The only problm is that I was never able to finish any of them. I got to the 2nd disk on 7 and the 3rd disk on 8 and the 2nd on 9. The problem isthat I've either lost or brocken all the final disks so I can't finish them anyway which sucks cos I really want to find out what happens. My other reason for loving 8 are the GF's they're really cool especially Ifrit. I know they're in a lot of the other games but the battle system just works for me.

After that 7 is great. Barrett and Cloud kick ass!!!

Kingdom hearts was designed by the company who made Final Fantasy games.

I got at level 53 and beat the final boss but Sephroth was still trouble. Plus I played it in hard mode so I could see the preview of the next one and I was dead before you know it plus the final boss got real hard at my level but I still found a way to beat him.

Any way on 12 game I've reach that temple and I decide to go back to beat the hunts and level up some more before I go through. I still got to get back to it because I've been busy playing Smackdown vs. Raw 07 but I really got to continue my FF12 game.

FF3 never did come to the US

the FF3 you know for the SNES is actually FF6(the only FF games released before it outside of japan where the Original FF and FF4 which was also renamed to FF2)


FF3 for DS is a remake of the TRUE FF3 for NES that NEVER was released outside of japan



any ways its a damn good game they didnt even change anything other than the graphics and update the storyline

the gameplay and every thing else is the same as the NES version with update plotline and a bonus dungeon added in

oh and the defult class fromt he original FF3 was made into a secret bonus class


oh and dont expect the game to be story heavy or easy as its not

even with the story upgrade the game is still very light hearted compaired to other FF games and thus focuses more on gameplay and stratergy

and also they didnt nuke the difficulty like they normally do in ports/remakes meaning it retains its original difficulty(I was getting OHKOed in the 2nd dungeon by skeletons if that means anything)


That wont stop some people, they'll always be someone who counts it as part of the franchise.
