Final Fantasy XV Battle System



  • I haven't played FFXV yet but I played the demo and felt like I was fighting against the game just trying to aim at the enemy and do that teleport up the walls and such. That felt complex in itself. I honestly couldn't imagine a whole game like that.



  • @GoTaco the warp striking and targeting works alot better then it did in the demo



  • I haven't played XV but from what I've seen of the battle system it doesn't seem like anything great, and for what is worth I always prefer turn based RPGs by a landslide.

    My favorite non turn based combat is probably the one from Tales of Vesperia, but I usually find non-turn based to be kinda messy.


  • Banned

    Square is dead set on XV''s, Nier's, KH's and FFVII Re's live action combat so complaining about it is a bit of a futile effort.



  • Haven't played FF 15 yet. But plan to do so just because its FF and the wait. Gonna take some strong interest though to keep me off Destiny.

    I am one of those gamers who still enjoy a well designed turn based system. FFT battle system, is still like crack in terms of addiction. Also really like VC system.



  • I felt there was just enough action to keep me engaged, but not so much that it felt cumbersome. Post game, it felt like I was having to prepare properly to survive certain battles, but I was waaaay over leveled for the story to be challenging. Then again, I enjoyed the story battles and missions, in spite of it.



  • @Art Nier seems to be a completely a different thing to me, in terms of combat.

    It also saddens me that they would do that for FFVII, I've never played it and I'll probably play the remake once it is all out, but I'd like it to stick to the original to get a feel of the original game, but I guess Square just doesn't care about that.



  • @Art i think ff7 is gonna be a hybrid battle system because theirs gonna be a ATB gauge



  • @FF7Cloud Yeah I can't really tell what its going to be. One of the screenshots looks like it would be the original battle system and another that looks very actiony FFXV. I would be happy with the original or some hybrid if its done well.

    I'll still bitch about it and hate it and demand they change it until they do like Capcom with Resident Evil.



  • @Stephleref You want 1st person JRPGs?

    Nah i want Final Fantasy to be Final Fantasy and not you know, shit like it has been for a while.



  • @Stephleref And how does Capcom fit into that?



  • My problem with FFXV battle system is not that it action RPG, its just its not good action RPG.
    I wish it would play like KHII FM, which u have to time your block perfectly. In FFXV when enemy is about attack u there is gaint bottom in middle screen that tells block and then perry and honestly thats just not satisfying. Also in FFXV never have to study your enemies moments or any weakness because as long as u have healing items and phoenix down u mostly power through any fights.

    Resident Evil 6 was nothing like RE in an attempt to be "modern" and catering to non fans and they fixed that with RE7. Turns out they are still one of the best when they stopped being retarded and catering to their fans again. Final Fantasy is and has been doing the same dumb shit of trying to be modern and catering to non fans of the series. I will shit on this series with everything i have until they fucking do. I will NEVER accept this fucking bullshit.



  • @Stephleref But mainline RE was never 1st person in the past, and I personally don't want 1st person to be the future of it. I really hope they don't mess up RE2make, it should be what REmake was to RE1.



  • @Tragosaurus @Stephleref @FF7Cloud

    This was a few days ago now.

    FF7 battle system update

    Take the update how you want. But I don't imagine it being a hybrid at all. As for the all the stuff you see in the interface, that's all just graphics put over the screen. It's going to be total bate and switch. He even said it was a placeholder. I know he doesn't mention the ATB specifically in that statement but I wouldn't get my hopes up just yet. I'm sure he started with trying to do hybrid then went full action.

    Makes me a bit sad, because I wonder how all that materia and summons is going to be intergrated into an action combat game. I was hoping for a hybrid. Even though I doubt it, it could still be that way. Who knows.

    @Musou-Tensei did you play resident evil 7 and not like it?

    I understand wanting the old style. REmake shows that it works. But I'm happy with 7 too. I thought it felt very much like original resident evil and I'm sure that's what @Stephleref is implying.



  • Hey guys can we not talk about RE6? It really rustles my jimmies.

    Seriously though. RE5 is one of my favorite REs (and probably one of my favorite games in general) and I still can't figure out what possessed Capcom to fuck up 6 THAT BADLY.

    Even when you look at it in a vacuum and ignore that it is an RE game, there are just sooo many bad choices in that pile of dogshit.

    On the topic of XV, I didn't really mind the combat. Then again, I really liked XIII.

    Fight me.

    It's not about the 1st person perspective but the mind set of those changes that is similar to RE. RE7 may be 1st person but it's totally Resident Evil. I'm not asking for much, just do what they're doing with World of Final Fantasy or I am Setsuna at the AAA level.

    Final Fantasy used to be so good that people would debate about getting a Sony system just to play the latest FF game kinda like people are doing now with Zelda and the Switch. Now even the people who like FF pretty much agree that Persona and Nier: Automata (and Ni No Kuni and etc...) is more exciting.
