    ...at least for those who still care about the Final Fantasy series...

    As a guy who stuck around with XIII to the end, I have much in the way of trepidation. Squenix, please don't let it suck...

    Downloading the platinum demo as we speak. Really liked the Episode Duscae demo. It's been at least a decade since I could say that a Final Fantasy game may be my most anticipated of the year.

    Welp.. It's about time to buy a PS4. With FFXV, FFVII Remake, Bloodbourne and a buncha other exclusive games, I cannot resist.

    Here is the press conference. The first hour is just filler, so I suggest to skip to 1:02:00. Could've chosen much better hosts as well. Ugh.

    Just got done with the platinum demo. First time I've been excited for Final Fantasy since X.

    I should probably add, since it hasn't been mentioned in the thread, apparently you get Carbunckle if you finish the Platinum demo, and this is the ONLY way to get Carbunckle.

    Oddly enough, palying through the remaster of that on PS4 now. I still dislike the voice acting, but find myself enjoying the game much more than when I got it on PS2.

    Finished the Platinum demo. Felt like I was playing Kingdom Hearts... Actually, even the Duscae demo, I feel like I'm playing a mature version of Kingdom Hearts... Oh well, can't complain, Kingdom Hearts is awesome.

    Awesome to hear. And since it's still part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis, I'm gonna get this even for whatever (if ever) continuity anyway.

    I played through the actual PS2 version a few months ago. Dodging lightning for an hour for Lulu's final weapon sure was one of the dumbest things I've ever done!

    15 years on and I still have never done that side quest. My friend told me of the time he got to 197 before getting struck. I think I would give up gaming altogether if that happened to me.

    This is exactly the reason I needed to put down the Halo/Gears of War/whatever FPS 'insert here' controller for the PS4. Even Metal Gear 5 didn't sway me, and it is fine on Xbox One. FFVII remake is the tipping point, and I prefer to run FF games on their native system. So, no I have an answer for 'because reasons'.

    Ha. I was doing groups of 25 and then pausing and going to do something else and coming back. Even with this approach I definitely choked at about 197 one time, and earlier a couple other times. It was miserable.

    I didn't even seriously attempt that butterfly BS or the racing crap with Tidus, those both seemed to be far worse. I just got the final weapons for Lulu, Yuna, Auron and Rikku, got all the Aeons, and absolutely steamrolled the last boss. If I swapped in any of my "B-list" they'd instantly die, but I was practically invincible with those four. It was sort of a letdown. That game is tuned in odd ways. The characters and the boss designs and everything seemed pretty top-notch, though. I HATED blitzball after trying ~10 matches, but I know a lot of people who like it. Obviously, that was the reason I didn't get Wakka's weapon either!

    I started FFX-2 recently too, but didn't get too far. I might need to get a PS3 or 4 and get an HD version of it...I sort of wish I'd done that with X as well. The super-low resolution can be jarring and I'm not convinced my PS2 isn't going to up and die at any second.

    Tabata stated a few months ago that XV is no longer considered part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis series. I doubt there would be any continuity anyway, other than crystals.
