My eyes stream tears of joy never seen to mankind.

Let us not judge a man by the colour of his skin, but by the character he chooses to battle with in Brawl.

It'll probably be a Crystal Chronicles sequel. (which could actually work out very well for once)

Or a Chocobo game.

Which would be awesome and would force me to buy a Wii U.

I do doubt there will be a numbered Final Fantasy on the console though, remakes aside.

FFXV

In a way exhausting
we're problem solving
Drink 'til she's attractive
We're PARTYNAUSEOUS
Talking 'bout diplomatic
I brought my plastic
Making that peace attractive
We're PARTYNAUSEOUS

Except actually make it, you know, GOOD. I'd be really cautious about it after the XIII disaster. I'd be overjoyed if they made it a turn based, medieval-ish fantasy like they used to. Hell, I'd be thrilled for another Crystal Chronicles.

I still think KH3 is perfect for Wii U. I already explained it in a different thread, but that controller screen is perfect for the command list.

Or Dragon Quest. Speaking of which, where the heck was DQX at E3?! That was announced in 2008! Now if that got moved to Wii U (like Pikmin 3 did) I'd be perfectly content (though mad they didn't say it), but I do think that if they've been working on it that long that it should just be on Wii. Wii's ending would be beautiful with DQX and Skyward Sword...

Except for the fact FFXIII is a great game in the series.

No it's not. That's fine if you like it, a lot of people did so I'm not going to go and say "FF13 SUCKED IT'S A FACT" but it is NOT a shining point in the series. The battle system was hardly there, easily one of the most boring I've ever experienced, story was okay but messy, most of the music was forgettable (Uematsu worked wonders, I don't know why they ditched him), and most of the characters were annoying and pretty generic. One positive though, it's absolutely gorgeous, but graphics can't save a game that just ins't very good. It feels like the Final Fantasy brand was the only reason why people wanted to tolerate it, which I find sad. For the people who enjoyed the game, that's great. I have nothing against you. I'm glad you liked it. Everyone has a different taste. But I know too many people who wanted to enjoy it simply for being a Final Fantasy, and said it was a great game because once again, it's Final Fantasy.

What I'm getting it as is, it should not be a numbered Final Fantasy title. FF13 flipped everything we like about Final Fantasy upside down. That's not even a bad thing. It's good to try new things. But for God's sake, DON'T fix something that isn't broken. Leave the elements of FF13 for a different series or a spinoff FF title, and bring back the elements we could all agree, are what the main FF series is all about.

Rant over.

Alright, I need to clear something up here. I shouldn't have said "make FF15 good" and that "13 was a disaster". It's just my opinion that 13 was a poorly done title.

What I was trying to say at first is that I would rather see something similar to older FF titles and not something like 13.

And then I got caught up in making a lecture about why 13 should not have been a numbered title (and I still stand by that statement). I probably shouldn't have.

It's just my wish to see something I liked and not have Square dangle potential in my eyes and the pull it away and make it something I personally do not like.

I think this should cover this man's thoughts for this thread.

I don't see why not. The last couple of FF games have been on all the HD consoles (yes?) so I wouldn't be too surprised if the next one got a 360/PS3/WiiU launch. I would think that the vast majority of games not out yet that are launching on both PS3 and 360 will end up on the Wii U.

Why wouldn't they? Porting is cheap and can make them heaps of money.

I knew this would happen xD

But it's no problem. To me this kind of falls into place with Metroid Other M.
Hated for feeling different. It can be argued that Metroid Other M shouldn't even be considered a Metroid game, like you think XIII shouldn't be a #ed title.
I think Metroid other M was a great game, but for the Metroid fan, they can get overly frustrated with it, and overall bury the game in more criticism than praise.

Same thing goes for the die-hard FF fan. Though some liked XIII, the majority didn't. But if you aren't the biggest picky FF fan, and you're a gamer, just looking as it as a game not in comparison to previous titles in the franchise, then you may have a different mindset.

I do respect your feelings toward it, and of course criticism like that is needed to make the next installment a more polished and different game. Perhaps even more enjoyable for the FF fan.
But if it makes you feel better, Square has said that XIII-2 is supposed to fix all of the things players complained about in the first game. So we'll see.

Nah. FFXV will be on the next gen Sony, and perhaps Xbox consoles.

SE has a product roadmap that means FFXV is still a few years away, and by then the Wii U is going to be inferior tech. Which never goes well with Final Fantasy games.

I expect a HD Crystal Chronicles.

Oh, and XIII rocks, and is a high point in the series.

I do concur. FFXIII would be an excellent addition to the Wii U library.

You just like to disagree with me don't you. :P

I don't know what SE's FF roadmap is but I would think that we'd probably get the next FF before the PS4/720. If those consoles appear before 2015 or the next FF comes out after about 2014 then we might not see it on the Wii U. I would've expected the next FF to come out before then and the 360 and PS3 to have more life than that but.... who knows.

it'll be Final Fantasy: Pulse Experience. You'll look at high-definition screenshots of Crystal Chronicles concept art and the vitality sensor will make sure you don't die from boredom.

And yeah....As I've explained before, XIII was one of the few "honest" FF titles. Rather than pretending there's exploration (unless you're playing I-III NES, V in parts, or XII) they gave 70 hours of dungeons. I could've gone for a town or two, but I don't find it any different a rework of the series than any of the titles before it and thought it fit rather well in the current generation of games. Rather than artificial, make-you-replay-crap difficulty, they let you retry bosses/battles, and made them actually challenging and a bit more twitch as a result. The sneak-up-behind feature added just enough to do between running dungeons and battling and made an interesting strategic angle given the confines of the battle system. I also had a ton of fun with the story....characters started off a bit generic but I grew to like almost everyone.

But yeah--totally a numbered FF and belongs as such. I don't see how people loved X and couldn't get into XIII...Autopilot dungeons are fine as long as the battles are hilariously easy the whole game long I guess. And apparently people love having their adventures interrupted by irritating sphere puzzles....who knew?

LosAngeloTrip and I are 100% of a like mind when it comes to FFXIII.

Except that I like Vanille and I'm pretty sure I'm the only person on the planet that does.

Bu yeah, XIII was a brilliant attempt to remove everything bu the core JRPG experience. How anyone could complain about that...

And pix, XIII-2 has towns. Of course that means that people will complain about it being "too traditional," but SE has reached that unfortunate point where expectations for FF games is simply too high to please.

Man, I'm starting to think FFXIII has become more controversial than 12. Every time you see it comes up in forums it usually devolves into an ugly argument. No so much here but you know what I mean.
