  1. Do you have any idea how lucky you are that you got 6 games in a row that all produced that same positive stimulus you enjoyed? You can't just turn that on when you're developing a game. Square-Enix hasn't just decided to make sucky games people like you can't (or rather refuse to) appreciate' date=' they decided to do something different. Now you're bitching about games you haven't even played, games that are the closest things you're going to find to what you want that somehow still aren't good enough, and its Square-Enix's fault?[/quote']

    Yes, I do know and I am grateful. I downloaded the After Years today and gave it a couple of hours but just couldn't get into it. Definitely not even close to what I am looking for. Just to be clear though, I'm not bitching. I never once said that I didn't appreciate FFVII-XIII. I played them and enjoyed them very much. Just not as much as their 16-bit counterparts. I only want to play a new game in the vain FF IV, V and VI and I've decided to try the only thing I can think of to make it happen. I'm not chastising Square for any decistions they've made over the years as they are logical and completely understandable. You seem to be the one doing the bitching if you ask me...

    What exactly did you like about 16-bit FFs that you feel just couldn't be/haven't been done in later entries? I'm sure that you'll find that none of your answers have much to do with them being 16-bit when you think about 'em critically.

    Of course, you're right. It isn't the games being 16 bit that inherantly makes them good. They could have been 8 bit and been good as well. However, if they were in 3D as FF7 on was, a lot would have been lost imo. Playing an RPG back then was somewhat akin to reading a book. You could visualize in your mind (instead of in cutscenes) what the characters might look like in real life, or what it's like to walk through the streets of a town or city. For me, the overall magic and mystery of playing an RPG is taken down a notch when it is in. Also, the soundtracks were so much better in those days. Since PS1 there was an constant march towards more cinematic themes. By the time we got to FFX, there were maybe two or three decent tracks in the entire OST.

  2. Why would a mainstream company continue developing for outdated technology instead of or in addition to current technology? Technology and entertainment can't improve without improving graphics and sound too. That's why you're not watching Blu-Ray movies in black and white.

    Just because it's old doesn't mean that it's outdated. I happen to think that every FF after 6 was not an improvement at all, but the opposite. I think Sonic games are a perfect example of this as well. If people don't want old-school, why did New Super Mario Wii outsell both Super Mario Galaxy games??

  3. Warriors of Light and Darkness doesn't look bad at all, but again it is an episodic release game. That right there is my main problem. Part of the fun of playing an RPG not knowing what is going to happen next. But, when you get these episodes with titles already descibing the plots, not to mention knowing that the last episode is the last it takes a lot away in my opinion.

    I think you're probably right though that Square Enix won't take it seriously. I know full well that it's an extreme long shot. I just think that it's a shame that just because more advanced platforms like PS1,2,3 and XBOX have come out over the years that developers have basically abandoned older platforms with the completely wrong assumption that better graphics makes better games.

    Anyway, I'm gonna spend my time looking for an emulation of the new FF Legends game now...

  4. Hi all!

    I have written a petition in the hopes that if it gets enough sigs, SE may make another game that brings back the awesomeness of FF IV, V and VI. I know it's a long shot, but SE has responded to other petitions in the past. A petition to remake FFVII which has 20,000 sigs was submitted, and SE replied that they have no intention to do a remake currently. So, I'm ambitiously hoping to get at least 100,000 sigs before submitting the petition. Also, I will translate it into Japanese and send it to Square Enix Japan.

    If you don't agree, that's fine. Don't sign. But, if you're like me and think that SNES was the greatest system ever made and long for a new 16 bit Final Fantasy, please go ahead and sign. thanks!

  5. Yeah, I guess we were. But I don't think it's a big deal. There's 2 bands called Jenova Project. Anyway, they're on our friends list now. Everything's ok. Plus, they're in France.

    "ew myspace"

    Yeah, I'm not super fond of it, but it's excellent for bands.

    we have a website with all of our recordings available for download
