Comment on Lightning Returns: “But She Looks Like A Joke Now!” by HouseLife:

Avatar of HouseLife

I really enjoyed the subtlety and focus of the first two games. Most people hate them for pretty stupid reasons, but even I won’t defend Nomura’s decision here.

Granted I’m not against them trying new things since haters will hate no matter what they do and that’s already been proven. But the benefit is at least you can change her outfit apparently in this game. At least based on what a friend told me.

I refuse to even watch the trailer so I can buy the game without any preconceived notions about it and let my actual play experience be my own. The outfit won’t ruin the game for me at least, but hopefully it’s got purpose. I just want to see the completion of the trilogy, because it is an exceptional game series so far.

    And you missed the part where I specifically said I will not do any research or watch anything related to the game so I buy it and start it with a clean perception. Unlike many of the morons peppering the internet, I actually do in fact form my own opinions about something and ignore all the stupid people until I form that opinion. Bitching about something before it’s even begun has wasted a lot of my time in the past where I listened to peoples’ opinions and they turned out utterly incorrect, …

  • Lightning Returns: “But She Looks Like A Joke Now!”:
    There was definitely subtlety. I wasn’t speaking about designs or things like that, but the actual acting. I honestly don’t care whether people liked the acting or characters or not, but there are two things that are true: The acting was solid, and there was a lot of unspoken emotion that was conveyed very well. If you didn’t feel it, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t there to feel if you wanted to. Characters or scenario may not be to your liking, but it was there, and I respected it. People who …

    If you haven’t played it, I really suggest you give it a shot rather than take on other peoples’ perspectives. If you have, well… sorry it’s not FF7? You can play that anytime you want.

  • Lightning Returns: “But She Looks Like A Joke Now!”:
    If by ‘thing’ you mean really well-made JRPGs in a classic sense? Then I guess yes, but people don’t play it because it’s popular. They play it because it always, always has a standard of quality that constantly gets raised. Whether people don’t like their choices or not, the quality increases on a constant basis whether they like it or not. They just bitch and moan too much to actually pay attention to that fact.

    Understand that graphics goals are already proven not to truly matter to most (not to mention ‘graphics’ means nothing overall). The dances have to be good, the models have to be clean, and the gameplay solid for what it is. The graphics involved are something more and more companies are realizing fans don’t even know what they are asking for. For example you complain it doesn’t use enough of PS4’s processing power. What does that mean to the game exactly? What are you expecting exactly? There …

  • Tomoyo After Now on Steam Greenlight:
    I was told by a friend he didn’t like it because they basically screwed all the time and wanted more of a story to it. Based on that part of my thinks a censored version may be more nominal, and yet simultaneously I’m against cutting down on anything when the original was how they wanted it. Sadly this makes me even more curious.

  • Final Fantasy VII Remake: “We’ll Change What We Want!”:
    The loss of sales you are referring to is not because of the nature of their games or a loss in fanbase based on their actions alone. FF7 was an alignment of elements in gaming history that changed the world, not just the industry. The story and characters were not THAT amazing, however the delivery was completely solid enough to be beyond everyone’s expectations, even after FF6 pretty much set the bar for the ability to make a truly dark plot. What has changed is expectation and generations. …
