    Played the demo. I wasn't all that impressed. Real time combat has no place in FF.

    unless SQE loses this real time hacky slashy like combat, I dont care as far as i concerned this is not FF game does not play like one either imo neither was FF13.

    Nor will I buy it like I did FF13 simple cause of it name. only reason I didnt regret buy FF13 was cause I hated it so much I actual went back to actual play FF8 which refused to finish or play cause of the draw system.

    FF12 was the start of were I lost intrest in FF simply cause SQE idea of turn gameplay into something that is not turn based with wait/active times systems.

    I Might buy FF15 when it like 5$ or less bargin bin but till SQE goes back to its roots and remeber what FF gameplay was and should be, they can sit and spin.

    I'm looking forward to it very much. I personally look forward to the new combat, it's refreshing. The series needed a change.

    Just watched kingslaive last night, very visually impressive movie.

    Plot was uh, kind of hard for me to follow, but it'll help for the game.

    I believe the movie runs concurrently with the game for the first few hours of the game?

    Nice, been playing the demo on base PS4 (racked up 10hrs now!). Just ordered a PS4 pro to collect tomorrow but waiting to pick up 4k TV in the black Friday sales.

    Hows the performance been? I watched a digital foundry video where they have shown frame pacing to be quite sporadic on the PS4 Pro high quality mode. The normal quality mode on Pro is butter smooth though.

    No not really, it's got a few clips form it in the game, it would help though.

    Or just watch the vid I linked.

    Well, I'll say this. HDR makes a HUGE difference in this game with my TV. I bought a PS4 Pro so soon with this game in mind. They redid some ground texture work, added hdr and did their pixel box rigging to make it appear to be in 4k. It's a beautiful engine.

    Some low res textures around but the world is so big and vast that you have to forgive them given the hardware they're on (especially the xbox one which seems to really be holding titles back).

    I put about 2 hours into it yesterday. Did a bunch of side missions, got my car fixed, more side quests. Back on the main mission now.

    I'm enjoying it. They did a great job creating a very oddball world, you have kings speaking in the 1800's style of language with a main character dressed and speaking from 2016, cars and chocobos. It's an insane mix that works for the series.

    My biggest gripe with Square's Final Fantasy series was the implementation of voice-over's and how they pushed them so hard early on. I appreciated reading the voices, listening to the music and creating the characters voice in my head. They took away a bit of the "fantasy" part with voice overs and since the PS2 I've hated every FF game to come out solely on that reason (dumb, I know, but it irks me beyond belief for some reason). This is the first time the voice overs don't bother me. They seem to be doing a good enough job acting and I think voices in games have been around long enough now that I'm accepting them in rpg's.

    Meant to hover around 45-50 on pro in that setting, apparently still stutters. Digital foundry will cover it I bet

    Wildly unstable framerate.....Have they never played a PC game? 40+ FPS feels so much smoother than capped 30FPS. I noticed the difference as soon as I booted the game up with the latest patch installed. Having played for 70 hours prior.

    Well it does look bad according to that video, and I'd be capping the framerate at 30 if that was the performance.

    Hopefully they add the option back in to cap the game at 30.

    It would look bad if you constantly looked at the FPS counter instead of playing the game.

    So having a game running at 30 fps is better than the same game running uncapped at 40+? The logic fails me.
