Ditto on the pre-order. It's not a bad thing to be like FF and I don't understand those people's mentality at all. I think they are just being typical fanbois really.

If it WAS another FF they'd be peeing their pants to play it. Yet here we have a FF-like game from the father of FF and they gripe..."they" being PS3 fans of course.

The game uses a turn-based system, something I like very much. Definitely getting it.

Why anyone would want to play a re-make of a re-make of a re-make, I don't know.

LO looks pretty good in the trailers so far http://www.gametrailers.com/player/30432.html

Dunno...have to ask all the Final Fantasy fans out there (my wife included). Every new FF is slapping a new coat of paint on the same game more or less.

I'm not saying that's a bad thing however...if the people like it then where's the problem? Just saying it's the whole pot meet kettle thing for the PS3 boys that are bashing the game.

Another point being if the game was on PS3 then they would be heralding it from the mountaintops.

huh? you 2 do know one final fantasy has little bearing on the previous ones. Each one is a whole new legendary (usualy) story, new characters, a new world, usualy a pretty new fighting system (or at least really revamped). LO looks to be pretty traditional time based (and dosnt look quite as complex as say ,ffx/x2). FF13 looks like it may be a much better realtime engine like FF12, one that allows for easy combo and multi targeting.

Do you think that because they're numbered sequentially?

Yep I do know that but it desn't change a thing. Kinda goes for any other series whether it be FPS, action, RPG.

You can change the paintjob but it's still more or less the same thing underneath. Note I also said that there is nothing at all wrong with that. I've enjoyed plenty of sequels over the years and I'm not one of those that thinks you have to reinvent the wheel everytime.

My point is the game is being knocked over silly points in both reviews AND by PS3 fanboys. If it were a FF game or if it was made on PS3 it would catch ALOT less flak.

Back to the main point of the thread (pardon the derail)...I've preordered the game and cannot wait!

Oh, BTW that gametrailers review was really good!

Here's a nice take on LO...there are LOTS of links on the page to info on the game from the married couple that are playing through it.

They are only numbered sequentially in Japanese, or so I hear. To tell the truth, I've never played a FF game. The online one for the 360 doesn't count, and it sucked in beta anyhow.
