Director Hajime Tabata teases a new gameplay experience for Final Fantasy XV By Raptorchan on December 14, 2017 at 6:00 PM

Hajime Tabata, director of Final Fantasy XV, teased a new game play experience coming to FFXV in this month’s issue of Gameinformer, something else that would be coming alongside new story content.

“There is also one other thing – a completely new gameplay experience I want to provide to players of XV as well.” He told Gameinformer. “I can’t tell you what that is yet, though. We’re currently thrashing through the plans for that and getting it into shape, so we can announce exactly what that is at the beginning of the year.”

Tabata also clarified that he and his team want to release DLC that is closely linked to Final Fantasy XV’s main story, and wants for it to have a strong influence “rather than something somewhat peripheral and unrelated.” That sort’ve content is what they are looking into for future DLC.

The development team are also already planning how to bring Final Fantasy XV’s journey to an official, and satisfying, close. According to Tabata, the adventure for FFXV began with the fans and he wants for it to end it that way as well.

“We’ve had this idea for quite a while now of how we’re going to bring the game to the end,” he says. “We call it, ‘The end of the journey – the end of our journey.’ Again, its a project that we’ve come all the way from the beginning alongside our fans and we want to bring it to an end together with those fans.”

Finally, when asked if the same business model for Final Fantasy XV would continue on in future Final Fantasy titles, Tabata had this to say:

“I think it’s more of a case that there are more options available for future Final Fantasy developers – this idea of a service model and as a way you interact with the fan base of the game. It’s not a single point in time, it’s carrying on in continuous contact with them. I think that kind of option, that kind of model, is something [Square Enix] may want to take up for future Final Fantasies.”

  • stevenm281

    How about balancing everything you’ve put in the game, and taking all story content from both the game and DLCs to make it into one coherent narrative?

    The potential is there, the content is there, it’s just poorly executed.

  • stevenm281

    I hope not

  • Noctis Leonhart Strife

    Put Insomnia as a prologue before the game, but not as a separate episode. When pressing New Game, come the option to play this optional prologue, and it would be interesting to play in Insomnia with Noctis, making us feel the taste of Versus XIII.
    Or make an additional episode where you play in Insomnia, but that is an alternative reality similar to what was shown in the Omen trailer. And use that theme, it would be very interesting Noctis looking for Luna.
    No longer the game deserved an opening in CG, some scenes should be redone in the main game because they had very fast dialogues. Open the map in the second part of the game.

  • Teddie Sage

    Amen to that.

  • Stonespear

    I’ll be honest, I haven’t played since finishing my first playthrough upon release. Is it even worth buying all of this new stuff? I’m erring on the side of caution and assuming it’s the disjointed mess it looks, but does it all play coherently? Is it all menus and choosing story after story for the DLC’s and modes?

  • Sarif

    It’s surreal how FFXV was lowkeyed in-development, with fan feedback all the way back when it was re-announced at TGS 2014. I had thought most of the ATR and Surveys were kinda cute that they wanted fans to feel special with the long silence that they are turning a new leaf, but it seems that XV was really a game based on feedback and an early access title through and through. 2 years after release to be a full game, which amounts too $60 down payment and two $25 Seasons Passes that should’ve been in the game already.

    What’s more hilarious is that people haven’t figured out yet and Square got away with it scot free and with the best possible scenario. This is No Man’s Sky level of a scam.

  • •december

    I will laugh out my mouth

  • •december

    put Insomnia IN THE GAME!
    Like how Altissia was huge in Episode Ignis, but like we need that exploration value for Insomnia

  • •december

    Yes.
    Things FFXV got right in my opinion:
    Episode 2 of Brotherhood
    Pitioss
    Comrades
    & Episode Ignis

    If you’ve played the main game,
    Episode Ignis and Comrades are most worth your time.

  • •december

    If it’s not confirmed Season Pass 2 will be paid or free don’t claim it is

  • Artemis Polara

    The second season pass would definitely be paid content. People saying they should work a second year’s worth of content for nothing is just speaking out of their asses. (Not saying you’re saying that last part but making a point never the less)
    I’m fine with the second year of content (Since I did ask for that in the survey after all)

  • Sarif

    They are not going to spend 1 year of man hours working on Episodes for free. The last time we got free story content they were just slideshows.

  • •december

    Tons of updates were free.
    I don’t see it as much of a problem as you do

  • •december

    I don’t see why people are concerned, already shunning DLC that is not even out yet. People will be bitter about anything… All this nonsense is passive aggression from the fragmented game we got and at this moment in time over a year on that’s pretty pathetic lol

  • Randy Marsh

    All I hope and constantly now ask for is that we just get a revamp to the whole magic system. So it works like in Comrades? I cannot stand the moronic elemency system in the game currently and after seeing what Comrades did, I would prefer that. Sure I would not be able to bask in the beautiful sounds of Prompto lit on fire, but sacrifices must be made.

  • •december

    It’s surreal how you haters can call FF15 a cash-grab,
    yet you own a $1500 gaming PC rig, 30+ games or worse.
    Can you justify being so bitter over a year later

  • •december

    This translates to me as:
    Comrades, a fresh on-going online experience, exists & the magic system is better.
    The battle system in FFXV, an offline finite campaign, should no longer exist, taking away the option to have both.
    This makes no sense to me sorry.

  • Artemis Polara

    Could keep both? 😛
    Maybe they could add the crafting system from Comrades (would require rebalancing enemies and weapons)
    Plus nothing stops adding the comrades spells from causing friendly fire 😀

  • Pleasance13

    Owning a gaming PC means saving massively on games and prolonging the life of older ones.

    Final Fantasy XV is a mediocre game with very poorly-made paid DLC and a catastrophic pre-release promotional campaign.

  • Pleasance13

    Comrades has potential but, as it is currently, none of the DLC Episodes are worth it. They play poorly and don’t complement the base game’s story very well. Episode Ignis’ most interesting bits are akin to fan fiction, or ideas scrapped for better ones.

  • Soldier Blue

    The real problem is the art in those slides sucks and feels tacked on.. I reckon you are not blind…

  • Soldier Blue

    Brotherhood and the film are both mediocre at best, at worst, just really shallow fluff with no concern for coherence.

  • stevenm281

    I’d keep both, Noctis using magic like in Comrades while Elemancy is used to craft spells for Ignis, Gladio, and Prompto.

    Also, now that a climbing mechanic and a swimming mechanic is fully operational, I don’t understand they do not add these feature to the main game.

  • Randy Marsh

    I enjoyed the way the magic worked more in comrades. The crafting system can be kept, but the overpoweredness of the magic and constant friendly fire of the main game just always bothered me. The magic in Comrades just felt more better to me, something that was more thought out through. .

  • Randy Marsh

    That is actually a decent idea. The prince/king of the royal bloodline has the more true perfected version of the magic from Comrades and have the Crownguard without the power of kings use the more imperfect variants, but have the drawback they can hurt you.

  • MajoraMan28

    May this be the World of Versus. Give Noctis’ slumber a twist nobody expected. Something that would make everyone crazy again for the game. It would be so fitting for Noctis to become a true king by going through the trial of what would be Versus XIII, or should I say, Versus XV

  • Mehmed

    And add some important stuff from the Prologue Novel and the Anime/Movie/Trailers/Cutter Stuff into it. Redo the stuff of the Main Game and first two DLC to reach the level of Episode Ignis.

  • Dod

    Lulz, that is such a fanboy thing to say.
    Some of us are bitter because over a year later the content they are providing is still crap, you don’t need a PHD to see that. It’s not about losing 70$ in the end, it’s about the principle of doing things like this.

  • King Zeus

    FFXV: good game.

  • Mehmed

    I’ll be honest too. Wait a whole year for the updates, paid dlc or not.
    Wait for the patches, and changes. Maybe they’ll make a Definitive Edition with a lot of changes for the beginning of 2019. If you want to have the full experience…

    Otherwise, here is what you should do:

    FFXV: A King’s Tale (Free download on PS4)
    Platinum Demo
    FFXV: Kingsblade Movie.
    Mini-Novel
    Begin Main game (until roughly reaching Galdin Quay).
    FFXV: Brotherhood (Anime).
    Continue game until Gladio leaves.
    Episode Gladio
    Continue game until Prompto leaves
    Episode Prompto
    Continue until post Leviathan
    Episode Ignis
    Continue until chapter 14’s end
    Comrades
    Finish game.

  • xMysticx

    so you pay more for even less ……..? what kind of mentality you have ?
    you are saying its okey to have your money for nothing or even less LOL!!!

  • •december

    It’s a fragmented game.
    If you dislike why give it more attention?
    Of course I’m a fan of FFXV I’m here in the comment section for FFXV news
    Re-evaluate how your using your time if you focus on things you hate

  • •december

    My point is if you’re here complaining, after so long,
    are you really using your time wisely.

  • stevenm281

    WTF are you talking about?

    We pay for additional content, which we are getting through DLC while they are adding stuff for free in the main game.

    Everybody wins this way, we get content for a game we love, they get money for the time developers spent working on the content.

    If you’re salty and wasting your time and energy on a game you dislike over a year after its release, you’re the one that needs his mentality reviewed, not us.

  • stevenm281

    I don’t think there will be a second season pass after the last ATR.

    Tabata mentioned that while they did have an approximate number of DLC for next year, his team and himself would rather focus on making one DLC at a time, making sure its more meaningful than the ones we got this year, and then proceeding to a new DLC, therefore, they’re not sure how many they’ll do, thus they cannot really do another Season Pass.

    We’ll probably pay for each DLC.

  • stevenm281

    Prompto leaves way after the battle against Leviathan…

  • •december

    Yup, Look what Episode Ignis did.
    I’m almost certain 2018 is going to go down this way.
    Comrades and Episode Ignis had immense revelations and they came out a year later.
    They will be the Revelations the magnitude of versus XIII,
    but remember versus XIII is the concept to FF15,
    so anything that went into it wasn’t made public.
    I’m saying: look at the concept art for FFXV, that’s where the story lies.
    They put ‘Jesus’ Ardyn from the concept art in Episode Ignis’ Extra Verse with some explanation and I just can’t deny there are many more plot twists to unfold.
    I use this word Revelations because that what Apocalypsis means and there are now 3 different intepretations, Apocalypsis Noctis (Noctis’ revelation), Apocalypsis Aquarius (Leviathan’s) and now Apocalypsis Magnatus (Great Revelation, in episode Ignis)

  • xMysticx

    so additional you say ?
    they did less its recycled things … and you paid 60+ so its in nothing
    in short SE lied to everyone yet they get the ok treatment

    in not salty im laughing at you stupid folk

  • •december

    Yeah I also love the Comrades magic system more and its battle system actually had weapon remodels, not just upgrades! It was way better lol, but it just doesn’t make sense to replace it when you can have both

  • stevenm281

    Recycled? How?

    All DLCs feature brand new environments, new mechanics, new music, new cutscenes, and some even feature new enemies.

    How is that not additional?

    I mean, this is so unhealthy for you guys to be so pissed that after a year you still waste time and energy on hating something and refusing to see the truth, you’re blinded by hate and disappointment and therefore your opinion doesn’t matter anymore.

  • •december

    I had the season pass with FFXV so i didn’t pay extra for over a year of all the content I got. As in, I had the Season Pass as part of the price of FFXV because I had the digital copy so it was 1 package not an add-on, and I feel my money was well spent.

  • •december

    I think we’re all ignoring the fact they absolutely nailed Episode Ignis.
    The Extra Verse / Chapter 3: Verse 2, specifically.

  • •december

    I didn’t mention the film.
    I didn’t even mention the entirety of Brotherhood.
    I mentioned the highlights in the entire multiverse.
    Why are you so blindly bitter?
    Besides, I was responding to Stonespear’s question

  • xMysticx

    …………………………. are you blind ? how its recycled ? are you lazy to compare that much ?

    my opinion doesnt matter cause SE is after your wallet for beta game and recycled bullshit LOL . im in no way pissed i just sit here on the side seeing brain dead people paying 60+ for a beta
    and 30+ for recycled additions that up slim to none to the main game

    listen to yourselves for once will you ? thats why i am EX fan of the company have washed my hands of their bullshit …… keep payin them for betas

    they said it ” GAME AS SERVICE ” so in short you’ll be testing games for 60+ for SE

  • •december

    successful trolls, man.
    its entertaining now lol.
    he’s saying to read the entire mini-novel and play King’s Tale.
    he’s trolling
    and notice how he says Kingsblade, not Kingsglaive movie.

  • stevenm281

    I don’t like the approach of games as a service, but I like the world of FF15, the characters, the music, the story, the combat, and thus I’m more than happy to give them money while they fix and enhance the game.

    If I wouldn’t have enjoyed the initial release, I wouldn’t be wasting money or time anymore on this, nor would I be wasting my time on the comment sections of articles about that title.

    If you’re an EX fan, as you put it, what are you doing here? Its a community for fans…

  • xMysticx

    im here for some laughs care to provide it for me ?
    you and who likes your comments will make a great pair

  • stevenm281

    You don’t need us for that, you’re quite the number yourself, just look in the mirror.

  • xMysticx

    awwwww that will hurt my feeling
    you new fanbase are ass for providing some laughs LOL

    look at yourselves before looking at your wallets

  • stevenm281

    new fanbase? I’ve been playing since 1997.

    Btw, I’m not trying to hurt your feelings in any way, I’d just like you to realize that you’re trolling and its pitiful.

    You said it yourself, you’re just here for some laughs.

  • xMysticx

    YOU as in general ive been playing since ff6
    and new stigma which you agree on in my eyes you with them agreeing on paying for betas

    enjoy your betas for now on SE wont go back

  • stevenm281

    I won’t have to as I don’t think I’ll buy FF16 at release, I’ll wait for development to be over.

    15/Versus XIII has a special place in my heart since 2006 and that is the only reason why I’m paying to support this on-going development.

    I’ll always wonder about how it could have been if it stayed Versus XIII, I was sad when a lot of moments I was expecting were not in the game, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying FF15 for what it is.

  • Dod

    Wait, I’m not allowed to have an opinion if I’m not a fan of this game ?
    I love Final Fantasy as much as you do, I’m just not sold on the way they handled XV and I’d rather make myself heard, along with many other people, hoping that this service model won’t ever happen again.

  • stevenm281

    your opinion mattered then yeah, but more than a year after release? I think you had plenty of time to be heard, its time to let it go, and focus on games you actually like.

    the reason we keep on providing opinions and feedbacks is because we like the game, are still playing it, but are not blind about its faults and we want them fixed for us to have the best version of this game we love.

  • xMysticx

    even if you pay now xv is beyond repair . i was a fan of versus . but, guess what people wont accept why i was angry in 1st place.

    then i said in yt comments and in here xv needs from ground up treatment . but heeeeey people hate me for saying basic thing after what tabata did and people in here still praise him

    look youd say im salty but hey i learned not to give a fuck anymore and id pay for a game that only deserves it not because of a company .

    now look they think of 2nd season pass the 1st one wasnt thaaat significant

  • xMysticx

    you had it because you paid 30+ up front with the preorder

  • stevenm281

    as much as I love Nomura, he never really knew what to do with his game, kept on changing the story, tried to turn it into a musical, it could have been much worse, we don’t know.

    plus, as I wrote above :

    I don’t think there will be a second season pass after the last ATR.

    Tabata mentioned that while they did have an approximate number of DLC for
    next year, his team and himself would rather focus on making one DLC at a
    time, making sure its more meaningful than the ones we got this year,
    and then proceeding to a new DLC, therefore, they’re not sure how many
    they’ll do, thus they cannot really do another Season Pass.

    We’ll probably pay for each DLC.

  • xMysticx

    i wont dive on whose at fault because idec …. its only shatters the old fanbase . there would be if ffxv fans want it
    as i see there is a huge demand

  • Dod

    There is no expiration date for disappointment, so your point doesn’t hold.
    I don’t actually hate the game, I enjoyed most of it. What I hate is how its content is being handled over time, especially the story. No DLC so far has shed light on those crucial missing parts, “more than a year after release”.

    Love is blind.

  • Aulix Indragonz

    just make XV-2
    as long as the world map is complete i don’t care if i have to wait another 5 years

  • alef321

    removing tabata from direction does wanders huh .
    it was the best dlc, it has the best gameplay and best story progression and resolve.

  • Mayumi Kato

    exactly, a revamped-already-existent CG from Luna’s death with few more dialogues, that was awful at finest

  • •december

    LOL!

  • Syul

    I. CAN’T. A. GREE. MORE.

    Gods, most of the hours I spent playing Episode Ignis (started at midnight the day it came out, ended at 6 AM) I was TREMBLING. I cried a lot less than I thought (probably because of how my mood had been lately), but playing this DLC made me do little jumps on the sofa, left me open-mouthed or smiling/frowning, frantically gesticulating with my hands in the air…

    And these things could have happened perfectly in other occasions, but THE TREMBLING. That just gives away how much excited I was, how amazing this DLC was. And I even trembled again when I saw a livestream of it.

    Like, damn, I ended the DLC and my legs WERE WEAK. I had to rush to talk to my friend just after I finished (nevermind that I had to get up in less than 3h), because I was internally screaming.

    Gameplay? Funny and very well executed, and having such a big map to explore and get items from is cool. Music? Astounding. Story and characters? Sublime, got so much feels…! It’s just the best DLC. A marvelous way to end this year for FFXV.

  • •december

    Funny you mention that, I’ve actually begun thinking what could in
    fact happen is we get an Episode Insomnia or Episode Eos,Episode Ardyn is
    announced, but who’s to say other episodes won’t focus on areas not yet covered.

    I, too, also need the entire map of Eos. It just isn’t a final fantasy
    without the entire overworld map. Huge let-down factor for FF15
    but didn’t spoil my experience!

  • stevenm281

    I’ve been very loud and clear about my thoughts on the game, its very fragmented, a lot is missing, so I’m not blind, but I love what is there.

  • •december

    So you agree Episode Ignis did do something right!

  • •december

    games cost money
    whats your point
    fifa on its own without any season pass is £49
    and some people buy it every year even though its the exact same game.

    If you’re trying to say i’m wasting or have wasted money
    you should troll harder

  • Soldier Blue

    I’m targeting you in particular because you have been a raging FFXV fanboy for some quite some time now and it’s just fun to strike at your nerves with the hard facts.

    Plus you listed Brotherhood ep whatnot as one of the best things about FFXV.
    *snicker*

  • •december

    I advise putting that energy into writing a letter directly to the head executives, even the directors of the next Final Fantasy and/or Tabata himself. Why not voice your opinion in a gofundme?

  • •december

    What nerves?
    Heated debates are fun.

    Definition of a troll:
    One who posts a deliberately provocative messages to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument.

    This isn’t trolling at all, this is Final Fantasy XV news and I’m fan of FFXV: such is true. So what are you?

  • Soldier Blue

    I’m a raging skeptic.

  • xMysticx

    ” game costs money” it does but base price is 60$
    and you got a beta . point is that you are sheep . for believing in their lies and also accepting it as it is

    my point that SE wants you as their sheep baaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • •december

    we’re all raging

  • xMysticx

    LOL!!!!!!!

    and you likin others with no response until said person response to you
    definition of a fagot 🙂

  • •december

    So what does that make you 🙂

  • xMysticx

    it makes me 1 of the audience laughing at you 🙂

  • •december

    keep it up bruh you are the best lol

  • xMysticx

    bruh,you are liking you own comments ?????
    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • stevenm281

    FFX is among the worst… the gameplay is nice, but the characters, story, and architecture of buildings, are dreadful.

  • xMysticx

    go like your own comments
    i go play classics . ” triggered” ?? hardly

  • xMysticx

    still over all better than fragments all over the place
    idec what you say worst to you

    ffx still has its own followings

  • xMysticx

    characters ? story and building ??? you are waaay the rabbit hole you are hard to satisfy unless its ffxv am i right ?

    auron 1 of the best damage dealers in the game
    please stop .. ffx isnt ffxv LMAOOO

  • xMysticx

    you are a no body to me
    in fact i keep replaying just for lols

  • stevenm281

    I meant characters in general: Tidus, Yuna, Wakka, Rikku, most NPCs, all Yevon worshippers.

    The only characters I liked were Auron (among the best characters in the series), Lulu, Kimhari, and Seymour.

    I’m not hard to satisfy, I like 4-6-7-8-9-11-13-15.

  • stevenm281

    its more coherent yes, but the story of a whining boy against his father turned into a giant alien whale… not that interesting.

  • Adam Hedquist

    XV is an average game imo. Parts of the plot is interesting, mostly about Ardyn, but the execution of the entire thing is so poorly done it makes everything fall flat on its ass. There’re glimpses of greatness both storywise and gameplay wise. I’ve said multiple times what they should’ve done with the story and do about the combat.

    Most of the sidequest are balls. I don’t mind fetch quests here and there but they’re so lazy here. One thing to do it right is having mini stories in them like history/facts/stories about the world/npc’s/the landscape etc. That is world building and the game needs it.

    I still have fun with the game. I’m at 114 hours and started a new game+ a couple of days ago trying to do everything I didn’t do on my 1st run and I have to say playing as the others even tho it makes the game even EASIER than it already was is really fun. The cheese is real with Prompto lol. I wish they would’ve done things better and different(adding more game mechanics to them) but w/e, I’ve started to expect them to half ass everything at this point.

    My honest thoughts is this: After a year, with all the episodes out it’s still a mess, half a game. I’m not a hater/troll. Versus XIII is the game of my dreams and XV is the ghost of it and I just love to discuss Versus/XV like adults.

    I don’t expect much from SE anymore. They got some real internal problems with management, terrible decision making etc and have had that for over 10 years now.
    I love FF so damn much and I want to help them somehow, that’s why I make my voice heard. I will say what’s good and what’s amazing, but I will also call out eveything that is pure BS and sadly their handling of Versus and XV has been pure BS all these years.

    I’ll end on this: I wish, I pray to god that I will someday play Versus XIII or Versus XV w/e they wanna call it. Nomura’s true vision with Nojima’s original story.
    But I know more realistically that would probably never happen, so another variant of Versus is more likely if they’re going to try a Versus XV that takes place after XV a XV-2 if you will.

    Idk if they will do that, but I’m all for it but I they can’t fix the mess that is XV as one coherent story (imo).

  • xMysticx

    whiny boy ? he has grown since he realized crying about it wont help if you people hate tidus that much why did you buy his game that much lol ?

    and there is soo much in the ulimania as well
    i’ll always appreciate his character at least he speaks his mind and actually had his own purpose to lead the group and fulfill what had in mind

    you guys see the surface i really feel sorry for you

    There was no way to know how much whiny he was before playing the game back in 2001, therefore I had to buy it.

  • xMysticx

    if you mean that laugh you didnt like
    or at the beginning of the game where he saying wanna go home . its normal reaction to feel longing to home .

    i have no interest in a weakling prince camping with his ” friends ” and waking his butt for lunch or dinner ..

    least tidus has own growth
    while mr prince had none of that

  • stevenm281

    to each their own, difference is:

    I’m not bashing FFX nor its fans on articles about FFX while you keep on bashing FFXV and its fans on their community websites.

  • xMysticx

    ohhh did i ?

    i only stated the fact that you still paying for practically nothing
    but, then again when people drag convos with me im the troll .. okeeeeey tell your friend not to drag convos or i wont be silent next time

  • Dod

    My voice alone won’t change a thing. Plus, I’m sure SE already knows what I’m talking about but they’d rather continue making a ton of money from the crap you guys are craving for. No offense.

  • Tizmah

    If FFXV is a “good” game, I think it’s time the game industry raises its standards.

  • •december

    for those scrolling:
    tl; dr version Op says FFXV is average,
    & wants versus XIII instead.

  • •december

    Well I can’t force you to do anything, but I’m just saying if you’re passionate enough about your feelings against Square Enix either change them or accept them and move on. That’s the way you will succeed, if not you will just stay bitter / butthurt / salty / mad… and that’s unhealthy

  • Adam Hedquist

    Thanks for makin me sound like a hater. lol.

    Ofc I want Versus XIII instead, but like I said that will probably never happen so
    I’d like at least a variant of it (as there is alot of potential left in XV’s universe) in the form of Versus XV or XV-2 ….which you forgot to mention.

  • Artemis Polara

    Doesn’t matter to me, I’ll get them anyway 😛

  • •december

    No positive or negative – this is about critique:
    The concept (versus XIII) never got released.
    FFXV is something that’s real.
    You’re asking for something you that was never 100% disclosed and I think that’s futile…
    you could critique Final Fantasy XV and compare it to its concept, but I don’t think I’ll ever clearly get my point across because that’s all people want to do is stay mad about something they hate instead of:

    changing it (tackling the problem at its source, the company who is responsible for FF15)

    or

    accepting it (moving on)

  • •december

    talk about backseat fishing

  • Adam Hedquist

    You’re preaching to the wrong choir.

    Even tho I want Versus I’m not exactly blind to the reality. The chance of a original Versus game is more likely non existent. That doesn’t mean I can’t or have to or that’s completely futile to speak up about my feelings of it.

    It’s in my right to let SE know that people still want that game. It’s still worth talking about something no matter how small the chances are. It’s how people go about it that’s the problem.

    Extremes on both sides are the worst. Why am I being labeled as a hater just because I don’t think the game is amazing? Why am I not allowed to express my opinions if they’re negative? If it’s constructive criticism it helps the future of the game and the company as a whole, right? I said I’m still having fun with the game despite it being average, but maybe you missed that. Average doesn’t mean it’s bad or can’t be alot of fun.

    Versus is mostly just a wish of mine, when I look at things more realistically the chance of a XV-2 is much bigger. Alot of people are speculating about a Versus XV right now that takes place in a different dimension/afterlife/reality w/e you wanna believe that is more in the style of Versus.
    I’d be really happy about that too even if it’s not actually Versus but more like a traditional sequel.

    Believe me I’ve sent them messages, but it takes alot more than that. Sharing opinions and hopes isn’t a complete waste of time.

    I don’t understand that mentality. I have to drop and forget something just because I didn’t like everything they did?
    If I want something or want changes I should be allowed to say it, that’s how things work.

  • •december

    Show me where I called you a hater, those were your words.
    Heated debates are good, my argument is what you are hurt by is the nostalgia –
    it overshadows what good we actually got in the FF15 universe.

    Also FFXV isn’t over so there’s no point in crying over a year later, and lastly FFversusXIII is unreleased and not all to unrelated to how FFXV turn out

    What’s your argument?

  • Dod

    So according to you, if someone doesn’t like how the Final Fantasy franchise is being treated at this point in time, he’s/she’s just butthurt / salty / mad.. ?
    That’s pretty black and white thinking right there. Some of us aren’t drooling all over this game as much as you do – and for good reasons – so I say we are more than entitled to express our negative opinions about this mess.

    Don’t worry about my health, I’m rock solid.

  • Dod

    That’s exactly what I’ve been saying to this guy. Apparently if you don’t love XV unconditionally you’re not allowed to speak here. Says a lot about fanboyism. Sad times for freedom of speech.

  • •december

    Stay mad then.

  • Adam Hedquist

    Never said you did. You think I’m blinded by nostalgia and can’t see what’s good about the game?

    So that’s what I’m doing? Crying. Ok. I often say what’s good about XV and say what they could do better or improve on in later dlc’s, but my opinions doesn’t matter because I don’t love the game?

    VersusXIII and XV are very different, even Tabata said so himself.

    My argument? That you’re only thinking in black & white.
    I can understand that you and other people love the game and I respect that, hell, I’m happy for you.

    Can you understand why I think the game at least plotwise is average? Can you respect my opinion? Do you understand that I think the game can be fun despite my feelings towards it? with over 114 h I’m still having a blast at times. Have you seen my comments about making the game better and how they could do it? Or do you just see the negative?

  • •december

    Dod you haven’t added any points of improvement to the game though, all you’ve and many other people have done is complained. Most of the Earth’s oxygen is used for complaints, how would you improve FFXV

  • Dod

    Thanks.
    Don’t forget to like your own comment on your way out.

  • •december

    Again, never once said you was blinded by anything.
    You’re twisting my words out of rage and hate;
    words fueled by emotions become arguments, instead of discussion so I would describe this behaviour as triggered / butthurt

  • Dod

    I’ve been loud and clear about my wishes for XV from the get go, but since you can’t read and prefer calling us all butthurt, I guess you missed my point.
    I advise you to ease your passion and properly read what people are saying before you respond, going all Hitler don’t-touch-my-game on them.

  • Adam Hedquist

    Well, I asked you didn’t I?

    No, I’m very calm. It’s the other way around. I don’t feel any hate, nor any rage.

    Trying to have a mature discussion about this is exactly what I’m trying to have.
    Your answers are very immature and I’m starting to lose my patience with you.

    Can you pls answer my questions.

  • •december

    I see a game that isn’t finished.
    FFXV is unfinished.
    It didn’t have a complete overworld like other final fantasy.
    The story was fragmented.

    Besides that, a lot of what it did get right I enjoyed!
    It was average, but it’s not finished and that’s where my faith lies.
    There’s really no bad way to finish this game it just needed more, and we’re getting more. They could do a better job, and they are… that’s how I see it

  • Dod

    I already proved myself by saying my opinion is my own.
    I’m well aware some people do like the game, and some like me don’t.
    That’s like that for everything, not just video games.

    XV is not the first game I’ve been brainstorming about with people.

    You’re a very unpleasant character to speak with, that’s sad.
    I’ve been expressing my opinion with other people here and things have been smooth and mature, even if we didn’t agree on most things.
    I respect your passion for this game but you really need to stop being so childish with anyone who doesn’t follow your way.

  • •december

    You get what you give, I suppose?
    Can’t please everybody!

  • •december

    You gave your opinion, I have my opinion !
    These are opinions, not facts or truth bro lol
    And we’re both entitled to our opinions

  • Dod

    The truth about my opinions..
    You’re obviously a troll, finally saying we are BOTH entitled to our opinions after extensively calling me names for my convictions.
    Have fun with your life.

  • •december

    As long as you had fun that’s what counts

  • Artemis Polara

    This is an odd occasion for me. While I’m definitely a defender of XV, I do feel you’re in the right to share your opinions here. Also that december does seem a bit too fanboyish about this. (Again I point out I don’t agree with some of your opinions but I do respect you sharing them)
    (Just to clarify I enjoy XV and the DLCs so far but do note the flaws but haven’t let that get in the way of my enjoyment) (The game is good, not great)

  • Adam Hedquist

    Yes, it is unfinished. Tabata said so himself. If it wasn’t for the contract that said that it had to be out in 2016 Tabata would’ve like to keep working on it at least another year, maybe even longer.

    Have you read the leak about what had been cut from (and re-written) the game bc of lack of time on 4chan? If you haven’t you should. This game could’ve been amazing if it had 1-2 more years, that’s what I believe. A complete overworld was in the works. The 2nd half of the game was meant to have several larger zones at the very least where we could use the car.

    Their reasons for the episode dlc’s were really stupid too.

    I really enjoy the combat and fighting bosses and some of the harder mobs. It needs work and tweaking, bc it’s soooo easy but I wouldn’t be playing it still if I didn’t enjoy it.

    They’re tryng, yes. I really appreciate that. The game is a better game today than it was at release. The type-d car is hella fun, they’ve fixed the hunt system, added party swap, added more hunts. Damn, I could write a whole essay about my feelings about this game and what elements that didn’t work so good and what they could improve upon and how to do it.

  • Dod

    Thank you Artemis, finally someone with common sense, which •december can inspire himself from to be a better person.

  • •december

    Yes, I have read everything that was meant to be in versus XIII, that’s why I can so confidently respond in any FFXV comment section lol

    The blood moon, Stella was dead along killed by Noctis. Children killing children, reaper worshipping Nation of Lucis. Premonitions, wakeful in sleep… Yes I’m aware what it was! And it was a great concept, but a lot of Nomura’s vision was still a bunch of brothers on a roadtrip before it became to FF15, did you know that!

    I’ve been following since when it was announced in 2006, got interested in 2008, it became ff15 rougly about 2013 and i’ve been following it religious since 2014/2015. None of the Dawn trailers seem to live up to the game yet.

    If people ask me what I didn’t enjoy about the game I’ll tell them, that won’t stop me remaining positive the good stuff!

    The DLC do seem stupid, but I got season pass because I wanted to know every little corner about this FFXV Universe and i’m still highly intrigued by it all. A lot of Episode Ignis Extra Verse and Omen leaks into versus XIII concept… but wait to 2018 that’s what I say

  • Adam Hedquist

    Yeah, but many of those things were still meant for XV and got cut out after 2015. It’s not only Versus that was more interesting. XV was (even with re-writes from Versus) were more interesting than what we got.

    Yep, I do know that. I’ve followed the game religiously since 06, to the point that my friends made fun of me for searching info on it every single day up till 2015.

    They talked about and decided to make Versus into XV in summer of 2012 when Tabata joined, same with Agito-XIII becoming Type-0.

    Good for you.

    I got the Ultimate Collector’s edition and the season pass didn’t include and that was pure BS.
    I’m also intrgued by it, it’s just that they’ve done a piss poor job of executing most of it. But like I said b4 it still has alot of potential and Episode Ignis is the first good DLC imo where it matters to the overall plot and that extra ending and a possible different dimension is exciting.

    But I don’t have high expectations.

  • stevenm281

    me too!

  • stevenm281

    Personnally, I’d rather watch Brotherhood before the movie as its about their childhood.

  • Hyou Vizer

    maybe by 2019 this game will truly be finished

  • CallMeGod

    So in other words you like to pay a game company to play their beta version of a game they are still developing. LMAO talking about stupidity, I thought game company was suppose to pay people to beta test their unfinished game, not the other way around. You sure are the reason why net neutrality is dead and why corporations are killing the middle and poor people because you are okay with rich people screwing you in the ass.

  • stevenm281

    well, I’ve always liked men screwing me in the ass but that is another subject 😛

    as I wrote to somebody else, I don’t plan on doing this for another title, this is an exclusivity for XV/Versus XIII that hold a special place in my heart since 2006, no game will ever match the anticipation and hype that grew for 10 years.

    I’m disappointed that I am paying for a beta, it really sucks, but since I like the concept, I enjoyed the initial release for what it was, even tho I’m sad that a lot of things I was expecting weren’t there, but after 10 years, I need to experience everything I can about this universe, and that is the only reason I’m accepting to finance FF15, but not again.

    thanks again for the insult, it was quite the catch!

  • Christian Vega

    He was already confused since the original plan was to span it to three games. Imagine that 3 games to 1. No matter how good a story teller you are you would be confused on how to fit 3 games unto just 1. I would say Nomura is far heaps better than Tabata. Why? Well in one of the leaks it was revealed that Roberto Ferrari, one of the designers of ffxv, left the team when Nomura was cut off as the director and followed him. It was also revealed that it wasnt just Ferrari who were very disappointed, there were many of them. Square Enix released the original script of the first chapter of the game and it was far better than what we got right now. 2nd he was annointed as the director of FF 7 remake without him even knowing about it. Not Tabata or any other talents, but him. And it was no other than the original director of the game, Yoshinore Kitasi, who made him the director. That just shows how they trusted him.

  • NoctLightCloud

    The fandom needs more people like you.

  • NoctLightCloud

    This^ The demand for a sequel is clearly there, and it’s huge. The impossible is already happening with the VII remake, so I think chances are rather high for your wish to come true.
