It is nice.

This is not a case where the game is coming in one or two months after the demo / beta. the game is only 60% complete and still has a long way to go. It is possible that the game will have frame issue, sure. But making a judgment as of now doesn't make sense.

 

Mainline Final Fantasy games never lacked polish. ( leave LR out of this ) heh.

The engine already stands. the missing 40% are not optimization but content. Look at the FFXIII demo which also was based on an early build. Apart from the different menu design it was virtually the same as the final game.

And this is always the case. With every demo or "beta" nowadays. People let the devs get away with everything saying "All criticism is invalid because it's not the final build and everything will be better in the final game!". Which is pretty much never the case.

I don't really believe in the FF polish anymore after I've seen LR. It's a different time and the machines are weak. Devs these days just love to sacrifice performance for spectacle. And you know how much SE loves spectacle.

Come on Vis I expected more from you.... How can u possibly say the missing 40% is content. We just don't know that. More so how can u say its not optimization when everyone knows that optimization is the last thing that goes into a games development. 

I believe that SE know they have a lot to prove with this game, and I also believe that they will get it right.

Wrong. "Tabata reveals that the current version of Final Fantasy XV is running on Luminous Engine V1.4, which will be upgraded to V1.5 for the Final Fantasy XV demo." 

 "The final version of Final Fantasy XV is planned to run on Luminous Engine V2."

And yes, I have links for everything.

Edit: Also, I agree about LR not being polished, but it is the exception not the rule.



Oh god, by the way you guys are talking, this 2020 release date I joke about is going to come true.



Hmm, pie.

Jizz in my pants. That Rammuh summon footage I just saw brings me back to the old ff feel of epic summons. Reminded me of that Odin summon in FF9.



Sounds AMAZING!!!! Literally can't wait for Friday!

Wish we got it on the same day as you guys in Amurica do!!

Most looking forward to the music and battle system at this point. And I've heard a lot about this summon...don't wanna get it spoilt for myself though!



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

BTW I think we should tweet or comment to Wan Hazmer all our concerns and suggestions based on our impressions of the demo. He's a pretty open person and usually comments as well.

 

For those who do not know who he is, Wan Hazmer is the lead designer of FFXV. He is not Japanese, so yes he blogs and replies in English.

Out of nowhere, boom, a darthdevidem01 post!

OT: For anyone who hasn't seen it yet, here's a video showing the Ramuh summoning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lK3HNm6wH0cLooks incredible.
