The Demo Intro has been posted online. I would imagine it will appear on the store very very soon.

And I just beaten the Original PS1 game.

Grats, did you enjoy it?

I forgotten how great the music is other then the overplayed ones. And I understand why Sephiroth is one of the more if not the best villain in the series.

I mean here's your villains up to this point:

Garland: Died in the first chapter and had this weird time travel plot (though I liked him in Dissidia)

Emperor Mateus: Conceptually he is effective, he's brutal and ambitious, but he just comes off as bland.

Xande: Victim of the first Villain Switcheroo. Who gives a fuck about the CLOUD OF DAAAAAAARKNEESSS!!

Golbez: Again a Switcheroo, and worse he became a good guy in the end. Who the hell is Zemus?

Exdeath: Perhaps the most unintentionally hilarious villain.

Kefka: The only one to Rival Sephiroth.

Then after 7 we got Ultemecia/Edea, I don't know I never beaten 8 to this day.

Kuja: Victim of Switcheroo, but I say he fairs better then Golbez because we see him to the very end as the bad guy.

FF X had too many villains I think: Is it Seymour? Is it Sin, is it Yevon, is it Jecht? I do think Sin on its own is a interesting take on the antagonist.

FF 12 kinda makes me sad because remember this series took a completely different direction after Matsuno left the director's chair. But Vayne Solidor had simple motivations, he just wanted to be the God Emperor of the World, he just didn't have enough screentime.

And I have not played 13 and 15 at all to comment.

So yeah you kinda understand why Sephiroth sticks out among the pack:

Yeah there definitely is a reason. However it would be unfair not to point out that Sephiroth is also a ruse and you are actually chasing his mom the whole time. So technically, it's another bait and switch.

So the entire gameplay demo has been leaked online. You can watch it above.

Additionally the demo apparently has files from all over the full game, and dataminers have begun to leak everything from materia, to the entire sound track, to endgame bosses and story moments.

This is shortly after it was revealed from a PSN leak that the Demo and the FULL GAME were uploaded onto the PSN server on a mirror that anyone on the internet had full access too. The full game was pulled immediately, but the Demo stayed up and people have played it, datamined the shit out of it and caused a flood on information to pour over twitter and reddit.

After watching the Demo gameplay though, I can say the game looks just as good as I had hoped it would be and am looking even more forward to this thing than ever.

Personally I'm a spoiler fan, I don't feel ruined by getting spoiled on things, so I have been drinking up these leaks like a hungry whore. However I understand that other people have some phobia of knowing things so I wont state any spoilers here directly. They aren't hard to find if anyone wants to check it out though.

What's gone? oh. just search the demo on youtube, there are plenty of videos.

And Delayed until April 10th.

Fuck.


The action looks good. But anime plot, acting and all that other shit was better when you didn't have to hear about it and could just read fast, play it out in your head and so on. They just add in story stuff just like all those boring parts from Advent Children that you fast forward through.

They really put their all in this project. Can't wait to finally play it.

The new trailer had me grinning like a mad man at my desk.

Did they release that demo yet? No? Shucks.

Ah, I see they keep the tradition of the cutscenes looking way better than the actual game.

PS: Gotta say, Director Tuesti never looked better...

I wasnt gonna post about the trailer because it didnt seem like people cared that much here. Happy to see someone do it for me and give me and excuse to blab.

The game looks amazing. Even if you ignore things like the plot or whatever if you arent into that, the game itself just looks good and fun. All the combat theyve shown plus what we have seen from the demo shows that the game should be a complete blast to just play.

I cant wait for April. I would have preferred March but what are ya gonna do i guess.

I don't think FFX can be said to have a single antagonist, but I don't think that's an actual flaw in the game's narrative.

While this may be a cliche, the 'antagonist' of FFX is a system. Spira has to deal with Sin due to the actions of people a thousand years ago. I can't call Yevon an antagonist because he isn't really a character in the game, and is barely fleshed out within said game. The church and Yunalesca aren't antagonists per se, they're simply operating in the best way they can; in their eyes, Sin can never be defeated, so the best they can do is give the people some hope and brief periods of peace. Seymour is insane, but it's insanity that comes from Spira's misery, and his own reaction to it. It's therefore telling that the system is finally broken when an outsider (Tidus) sees it from the outside, calls it out, and thus leads the party to find another way to deal with Sin.

I'm just gonna wait until the actual full game is out in one package. And then I hope they give this treatment to FF4-FF6.

Sephiroth really fits most of your quibbles with some of the others.

He doesn't even have his own agenda, he's just a convenient format for Jenova's agenda. He also gets Garland-esque ganked before the game even starts and its never even really established that you're even fighting him and not just another Jenova/Hojo made clone. His personal storyline/enmity with Cloud is entirely based on events that didn't actually happen. His big villain moment of killing a protagonist is both not actually him in the end, and largely overblown in the series mythology where this had happened before in both FF5 and FF4 (constantly, but somewhat censored out in the US version). And required Aeris to run off like a dumb teen in a slasher movie with literally none of her dozen odd friends helping her (Even if they couldn't trust Cloud to come along).

Comparitively, both Kefka and Kuja (who have overall similar arcs) managed to overthrow their controllers one way or another. And maintain their own personality in situation and their interactions with the heros. I still wouldn't say they're outstanding, as Kefka kind of vanishes into his hole in the Ruined World chapters, and Kuja does get randomly pushed aside for Nekron (although in the grand scheme of things, Sephiroth and Kuja both summon apocalyptic forces as their endgame, just sephirophs is a big rock, and Kuja's is the embodiment of death that takes his place as a boss fight.)

There is a tangible possibility that none of that will ever happen.

They posted the opening movie to the game, and I gotta say it is better than I could have ever imagined.

There was also a theme song trailer which some of you might have missed.

I have fingers crossed for no more delays.
