Square Enix’s Latest: “Not Again!”

ardina (1)

Genjuu Shinwa Ardina, Square Enix’s latest magnum opus, continues to cement its new-found reputation for quality amongst gamers – delivering the best in Square Enix quality not to the PS4 but to their browsers…

As might be expected, the title takes the form of a free-to-play browser game due in September – the quality of recent Square Enix titles’ art apparently now being inversely proportional to their production values.

    It's not by SquareEnix, so we can expect great things from it...

    I'm still wondering why Sankaku Complex didn't report on Capcom's recent rape of the Breath of Fire brand, something that seemed to generate much more controversy than something like this, which has come to be expected and commonplace for Square Enix.

    Finally! A Square Enix girl with sexy abs muscles. She still doesn't hold a candle compared to Dragon's Crown Amazon-sama, mind you!

    They jumped on the mobile bandwagon. And they'd be stupid not too.

    In the minds of FF7 the game has some legendary status that will NEVER be equaled. I have a feeling that even if a FF7 remake were to be made, there would be bitching by those fans who want the remake, about one or more aspects of it, with references to it not mirroring the the original.

    Only FF7tards want a FF7 remake.

    Its better to SE to focus in new games, like Bravely Default.

    I don't see how remaking FF7 is going to save them. It is a great game, but even with its remake, I doubt it'll break any record sales. If anything, they need to stop with all these action RPG bullcrap. I wish they realize not everyone likes metrosexuals and a bunch of flashy action and no substance. Time to revisit some old territories. Wishful thinking but w/e.

    Nope. You should know how the Japanese people think about our over muscle characters.
    Gorilla and GAAAAAAAY!

    Don't you see the most of muscle guys on Japanese games are openly narcissistic gays?

    Action-RPG isn't the problem, it's their methods of experimenting with it. Square wanted Action-RPG all along, that's apparent by looking at Chrono Trigger. It's just that they've spent so much time making their turned-based strategies, they didn't develop their action combat along the way, and they're fumbling with it. Even now, they can't help but mimic successful MMOs to make FFXIV: A Realm Reborn, but even then, that game's shaping up pretty nicely for an MMO. They might actually be able to make some substantial cash flow off of it.

    A browser based game is not going to solve your financial issues.

    Focus on making your console games better. Whoever is bringing up these ideas during your planning phase needs to get slapped. Hard. With a fucking baseball bat made of steel with rebar in place of nails. Because this shit? Not acceptable.

    Obviously, the sin of this social wave belongs to the gamers, casual to maniacs, all of us, but specially japanese
    because the low cost social games was more profitable than offline games.

    Japanese specially because Square is japanese.

    I have though a lot about this over then last decade+ and I have come to a conclusion. To FF7 fans there will never be a game as great as FF7. This isn't due to their constant bitching or that "they don't know what they want".

    It's because they attached some mythic status to FF7 that will NEVER be equaled. I have a feeling that even if a FF7 remake was made, there would be bitching about one or more aspects of the remake, with references to the original.

    It's solely because in the minds of FF7 fans, the game has taken on some legendary aspect and nothing can compare to them.

    There are other great FF games that came out before and after FF7, but for some reason FF7 was placed on a such a high pedestal by some fans that it is the one game by which all other games are judged.

    Seriously try judging games on their own merits and failings. Or if you have to compare compare and contrast. No one game should set the bar for everything else, unless you truly want to miss out on many other good and great titles.

    Welp, at least there are enough good JRPG's for a lifetime out there.

    I went to a conference by Akitoshi Kawazu several weeks ago and everyone was asking him why Square Enix was taking this whole "social game" direction, and he simply said that it's the most profitable way and whoever doesn't think so is blind.

    Blame yourselves. "Actual gamers" bitch and moan so much and many of them don't buy anything anymore. I've seen the statistics from the inside, and it's a wonderful middle ground of everyone simultaneously bitching about things being 'not as good as they were' and 'nothing new.'

    Then Call of Duty sells endlessly, and analysts give up, because gamers prove just how shallow they actually are. They don't want plot, they don't even want real gameplay, or even character development, because that would be too involved and require concentration, intelligence, and empathy.

    Meanwhile, RPGers don't know what they want either, and then buy 'open world' lies that have no plot and character. Then, they make a story that's 'classic' like Tales, and people bitch about it being like all the others, then they make something 'new' like FFXIII and bitch that it's not like everything else.

    So essentially, it's a market generated by hypocrites who simultaneously pretend they're not affected by marketing, and yet are generated only by marketing in general.

    So Square Enix seems to have thrown up their hands to make the money they're not getting from the stuff that actually takes effort. And it's nobody's fault but ours. People blame them for making 'crappy' games now, but none of them have been crappy, just yet another let down to everyone wanting FF7, and yet bitching that it's not different from FF7.

    Whatever. Hope they become multi-billionaires off this bullshit so all the whiners will know it's their own damn fault.

    I don't hate FFXIII. The game was decent. However talking about story, character development, etc...it is a fact that FFXIII was not as good as the older titles. I am saying "older titles" because I sincerely believe FFVII is a great game that is incredibly overrated.

    I've played some Tales games and their worlds suck compared to the good old FFs, Dark Clouds, Rogue Galaxy, Personas, Star Oceans, and a few others. Tales characters are about average, some likable some annoying, like most games. Tales overall stories are very lacking as well. The only real reason to play Tales games is for the battle system and the potential multiplayer.
