    FFXII Expectations

    I guess we are all kind of waiting for FFXII. The question is, what do you expect FFXII to be like? Squenix staff did say - if I'm not mistaken - that they want this game to be different in some way or another.
    It'll certainly be stunning as far as the graphics are concerned. I really don't think it'll look less awesome than FFX. The teaser poster looks promising, too.
    Anyone wanna speculate about what may be?

    If yes, do it now. On November 19 there will be facts, and we won't be able to properly speculate anymore.

    Is there any kind of main character we haven't had yet?
    Any way to involve espers that we've not seen before?
    What could Cid be/look like?

    Well, looking at the posters tells you it ain't gonna be like FFIX xD. It will be a FF8, FF10 alike FF I think. Futuristic, but yet full of fantasy ^_^
    All the Espers making their return would be fun, but I don't think they would do that. Probaly give it a new name first and the graphics.

    They should have a chocobo or a moogle for main character :B or no main character at all and all characters with their own storylines coming together in the game. ^^;
    I want Cid to be like FF7 Cid and playable again o_o I think.

    *~SPOILERS--FFTA--miniSPOILERS~*

    If you've played FFTA and you look at the "poster" on the site you'll know what I'm talking about. There have always been a few elements exsistant throughout the series such as Cid, Moogles, and Chocobo. Well if you look in the lower-left corner of the image on the site you will see a Bangaa, the "lizard-people" from Tactics Advance. Does this hint at some connection between the world of FFXII and Ivalice? Or is it a cross-over race such as the moogle. Maybe this is the game the kids talked about, or maybe tis is the world of Ivalice the kids are stuck in. Will the Viera and Nu Mao make appearances? Will there be a job system? Those guys at Square-Enix are crazy abut integration these days(Kingdom Hearts, FFVII:Advent Children, the company itself, etc.)so there is no telling what they might do.

    Oh well that's just my speculation. Form your own opinions. Nov 19 we will know the truth... at least what they're willing to divulge that is.

    Didn't Square-Enix mention something about FFTA and FFXII being linked somehow? Then again it could be just a rumor...

    And yeah, Moogles should get their respects and be a main character in FFXII... after what they did to the Moogles in FFTA. X_x

    Looks okay. Who cares how it looks? A good game is what I'm hoping for. :/ And I honestly don't know anything about it yet so... meh.

    Hm...interesting, very interesting. Judging by the limited screenies i'm guessing its a big cloudy city with a struggle against some evil goverment. (*cough FF7-esqe cough*)

    You know what I want... Itīs simple: Cute Characters! ^^

    I donīt want to say: It must be like Final Fantasy 10 or 9 or 4... I just wanna see an absolutly different game! I want an Auron... but I know, thereīll be no such bishi--- I am sad... -_-
    But whatever... as long as there are new characters Iīll be happy--- a bit.... well...
    I never cared much about how the next FF will be or should be! I always was "satisfied"! I just want good dialoges, characters, music and videos! ^^ and chocobos! He-he-he---

    And I want dinosaurs... and a chaos theorist... okay I stop here.

    i'm hoping most for an original and compelling story. that's what i love most about final fantasy games.

    the characters...i mean, the girl's outfit looks a bit like yuna's from ffx-2. (why do most women in video games have to dress like sluts?)

    anyway, there seem to be castles, which is promising. i love castles and fantasy-esque stories. ^_^

    IMO it shouldn't be like any other ffs.
    FFXII should be new in everything, so no more spikey haired boy with popeye's arms running around with a huge sword, no more scar face with a sword stuck in his gun, no more monkey boy and definitely no more whiney guy kicking balls underwater.
    It should be a game with all new stuffs they never had before and nothing like the past games so that there's originality, so there you go.

    btw, anyone knows the jap release date?
    Explosion!!!!!

    Ick. I can't believe the only guy I've seen so far (presumably the main character) is another lame topless crappy blondey piece of crap. He looks like a girl. He had better not be another Tidus. I really hated him. -_- But hey, maybe he'll be completely different. Some of the other stuff I've heard sounds good. I'm praying there will be no voice acting (totally ruins it for me) and a world map this time. See, my main problem with X was no world map, and no great secrets. To get any of the cool stuff you just had to do boring leveling up. This was even worse because you had to break damage limits etc. and it would just go on for ages. So, where as there was a reasonable amount of leveling up, with exploration of the world map, town, dungeons, etc. before, in X you couldn't much go anywhere later on, without boring as hell Sphere Grid, continual fighting crap. It took the fun out of mastering it, so I just didn't bother. =/ Right. What am I talking about? So, yeah, if they sick to a world map, damage limits, and not having the same main character from the last game, and include some nice new stuff... then XII could be pretty good.

    I agree with Duo about the Vaan looking like a pussy fuck... I really hated Tidus also, and it is kind of strange that at the Tokyo game show and such, the only people that you saw dressed as Tidus were girls... that kind of tells you something about the character. I really hope Vaan wont be the same also.

    Vaan's so cute, I already love him. Please, do share your opinion, but don't use such expressions as "pussy fuck", Loki... I really don't know what to imagine there, nor do I want to...
    Well, back to Vaan... He does look like a girl, but in a cute way, and I'm certain I'll get along with him. I like this type of main characters more anyway. I just cannot relate to people like Squall...

    If you can trust the trailer, there will be different-looking males, too. This guy with the white shirt seemed decent.

    And swords! There were knights, and swords!

    As long as there is an Auron-like guy holding the swords Iīm happy!
    No, really! What I need is another cool character (just to look at him all the time and running around with him etc.)

    And I agree with Duo... I want a world map! And a golden chocobo... (what am I talking here? )

    Whatsoever.... Iīm waiting until itīs released. I wonīt say anything like "He looks like Tidus!" - "She looks like Yuna!" before I played it.
    And the Misao-sister is right: Tidus-guys muuuuch better than Squall-guys!!!

    "Lady Auron"

    I was right, it is Ivalice. More modernized than in Tactics but thats all good. I definately suggest checking out the Famitsu scans. The Bangaa and Viera are much edgier and the chocobo riders look awesome. Ashe is a cutie(man those clothes are revealing) and Vaan seems like a metro-sexual. It seems they are playing to both sides of the field with these two. Anyways, the setting is gorgeous, the story is kinda typical, the music(Nobuo Uematsu is in charge) I can only guess will be superb, and it probably wont see the light of day over here until 2005(I gather from ff12.com that the japanese will get their hands on it in '04). so thats what I gather thus far. No doubt in my mind it will be one of the best loved, and hated in the series history.

    And note that Ashe is two years older than Vaan... and from the sound of their background stories, she could well be the stronger one, the more determined one, the ... well, she is leading a rebellion...

    Or maybe... an Empire, a princess leading a rebellion, a guy dreaming of becoming a pilot and going away? A masked enemy? Star Wars!

    Wanna bet that there'll be the famous "Take off my mask"-scene?

    You know, I couldn't quite place it last night but Misao is right, it seems a hell of a lot like starwars, only not in space. Who knows, maybe Vaan and Ashe are... brother and sister! They have never met eachother before and have no idea so they start to fall in love but towards the end the secret is revealed and sexual tension just dissapears. Nah.

    Yeah IGN also mentioned that the game was very Star Wars-y. I think the ships and stuff make it look kinda like the newest Star Wars movies, but thats about it. Maybe there will be wookies though... yay for wookies!

    Wookies in a Final Fantasy game? Can you imagine a Moogle arguing with a Wookie? That would be one of the most comic moments ever.

    Anyways, the screenshots look pretty awesome, and the video trailer has tweaked my interest unlike any game since FFX. So... I await more pictures with interest.

    I agree, I seem to be more anxious to for this game to be released then any other FF since FF9 (I only discovered the series when FF7 was released, otherwise it WOULD have been FF7 ^_^)...

    Moogle: Kupo Kupo!
    Wookie: Warrrrrrrrrrrgh!
    Moogle: Kupo-po Kupo!
    Wookie: Arrrrrrrgh!! Warrrrrgh!!

    Vann: The moogle should just quit arguing, he's going to make the Wookie mad.

    Ashe: Why does nobody care about making moogles mad though?

    Vann: Well a moogle doesn't pull your arms off when he's mad.







    ...... Sorry.... Had a star wars moment there.
