I thought 1, 2, and 3 were all interesting. The first was pretty neutral, overall great but nothing unique that sets it apart and nothing bad that brings it down. but 2 and 3 had higher highs and lower lows. 2 had the cool levelling system and the better story, but that levelling system was fundamentally broken and the story...got really confusing to be honest (Had I not been following a guide I'd have gotten lost SO many times.) 3, on the other hand, had the outstanding job system that REALLY came into its own at the end, an even better story, and a lot more awesome but like, those shinking sections SUUUUUUCKED and the first half of the game was really lopsided and inconsistent.
I kind of liked that about the first one. It just felt like a pure experience.
Final Fantasy III is actually more like FF1 than FF2.
It gets better.
Out of the first 3 FF games, FFIII is the best of the NES trilogy.
I believe it, the mechanics are definitely there. I definitely love the mechanics.
But the difficulty bump is one thing that tends to really bug me.
Definitely looking forward to getting over though.
So Tom Henderson as well as The Snitch is saying that Sony held back announcements from the showcase. After thinking about it some more, I think this is a very smart move for mindshare especially if they are waiting to see how MS does with their showcase. Considering Sony still has the new discless sku to announce as well, they are likely splitting things up with Summer game fest and/or another show of some sort. I think this could to be a 1-2 punch from Sony in the end but we'll see how it goes.
Shinobi was also disappointed with the showcase, and said that he knew of teams that were ready to announce things (I assume including promotional materials).
I think either there will be another September showcase/PSX in December, or we'll get another showcase next May with a big game or two coming extremely soon after that, or maybe some games aren't actually where they're expected to be.
But strangely there were some things missing from the showcase. Like Stellar Blade, Rise of the Ronin aren't that far off. Firewall Ultra is supposed to be coming later this year, and yet it was absent in the VR part of the showcase.
Unless it'll be at the Summer Game Fest or just a blog post; but the latter would be kind of surprising...
Wrong thread lol?
