[Polygon] Final Fantasy X And X-2 HD Remakes Coming To North America In 2013 - Page 3

post #21 of 71
I am glad they are remaking this game. It's a good FF. Maybe the last decent FF they made.

Actually this is literally the opposite of what companies like to do because of the way business works.

If you make XXXX amount of profit during a specific fiscal year/quarter then anything that follows will be compared and will differently affect your stock/companies value/worth. So if in the next year and quarter you've only made XXX amount of profit and you're "down" you can't just say " It's because we were so successful with FFVII the previous quarter" all that will matter is profits are down and the heat gets turned up under your seat as well as your company's.

The reason Blizzard staggered releases for SC/Diablo/WOW the last few years is because they couldn't have massive gains during one quarter with two releases together as all future comparison would've been "losses" in comparison. Diablo 3 couldn't afford to be pushed back even though the rune system and enchanting system were broken (and terrible) since it had already missed it's 2011 release and they couldn't let it get any closer to Mist of Panderia. You need at least 6 months between big releases to maximize profits or else you're battling against yourself and your consumers have to choose only one of your games game to buy on top of other companies big titles.

A company worth is only what the market thinks of it, and what people are willing to invest/purchase in. Having one release as a ace whenever youknowwhat hits the fan is an extremely valuable commodity that very few companies have, I just can't see them wasting their get out of jail free card when they don't have to.

The hands now have individual fingers xD Maybe they polish-up/rework some assets for a 16:9 viewing ratio.

Can't we get a FFX-3? Same world, same characters, same game play, but different story? Or even new characters in the same world on a continuing story line.

hell, even original FFX level graphics would be fine with me. I find my self playing PS2 games on a emulator more than anything else these days. Though I have the resolution beefed up to around 1080p already. Perhaps this wouldn't be that much different than what I do already anyway.

One point is having one of the most favorite SE games to be played perfectly on a device that's bigger than a note 2 but smaller than a nexus 7 with actual standard button layout... for the VITA at least.

Do you happen to know where you heard this? That's pretty awesome if they actually confirmed that it will eventually be done.

It was an interview of Hironobu Sakaguchi, the FF creator. It was a few years back.

Yes, yes indeed. Usually my thoughts when reading something about a new FF installment was like wheee.gif
Lately, especially after XIII-2 it was more like "meh, will they fail as hard as last time?"

I can't quite put my finger on it but something has been missing in the storytelling recently. Plus the whole time travel thing of XIII-2 had so much potential, yet they wasted almost all of it. Sure, the presentation was great but with the last one I was glad it was over after the final boss.
Jeez I used to love the series frown.gif

He hasn't been with Square for nearly a decade now and has nothing to do with the company or its games.

Although I'm sure a Final Fantasy VII remake will happen at some point, and I hope it does so that people finally stop demanding it in every Square/Final Fantasy related topic.

For most, that 'something missing' is simply the fact that they aren't experiencing these stories through the eyes of a teenager. The writing found in Final Fantasy and other JRPGs was never particularly good to begin with, even within a medium that has trouble writing/telling good stories in general.

The fans have grown up and can no longer stomach all of the cheesy dialogue, cliches and pacing issues the genre has always been rife with. As much as I dislike people using 'nostalgia' to dismiss folks' affection for classic games, that's largely what we're seeing when people talk about how good the writing and storytelling used to be versus today. Final Fantasy VII's story wasn't good (it was enjoyable to me, however), it was just less terrible than, say, Final Fantasy XIII's.

What's funny is that for as much hate Final Fantasy XII gets for being yet another nail in the series' coffin, the man behind that game was probably the greatest writer ever to find themselves employed at Square, and also one of the most talented game designers. I admire Hironobu Sakaguchi, Hiroyuki Ito, Yuji Horii and so on, but Yasumi Matsuno was truly Square's greatest asset, and executive meddling forced him out.

So are the newer final fantasy games' sales reflecting this? Are teenagers today buying the new games and enjoying them? Or is the COD generation of gamers to blame for sales or lack there of?
