>>
>>323247758
What's so bad about it after you've played the Japanese version?
>>
>>323247643
I want to try a Thief/Time Mage
>>
>>323247643
I'm tempted because I'm a sucker for Final Fantasy class systems but I'm gonna wait to hear the general consensus first.
>>
>>323248014
but we are getting those
>>
>>323251317
When the game was first announced for the west we weren't.
>>
>>323247643
Do I need to have played any of the final fantasy games to appreciate this one? If not, count me in.
>>
will the online be any good if so I can only imagine what playing with /v/ will be like
>>
>>323247643
Day one pirate I guess
>>
>>323251427
oh ok, I thought you were talking about last direct when they mentioned it, I thought that was the reveal
>>
>>323251575
same, day 1 purchase
>>
>>323251481
I don't think so. Each finfal fantasy have different arcs so you should be fine.
>>
>>323247643
Yeah, after playing Rodea on the 3DS my expectations for anything new have never been lower so I'm bound to enjoy it.
>>
>>323247643
I'm split.

I've heard mixed reviews saying it was fairly lackluster.

At the same time, I love the idea of monster hunter esque combat with an MMO-party twist.

Anyone know the number of monsters?
>>
I want to know more about the game but it's getting the same complaints as God Eater and Toukiden.

"Boo hoo it's not Monster Hunter"
>>
>still have Soul Hackers in my backlog
Is there some sort of limited edition bonus content if you get it day one? Otherwise I'd just wait a while
>>
Most likely, yes.

The monsters are my favorite part of Final Fantasy.
>>
>>323253592
Why'd you do that?
>>
>>323255919
I don't know.
I bit my lip and kept thinking about NiGHTS, I tried to convince myself that it was me and not the game that sucks; that and I didn't have a Wii or WiiU.
>>
>>323251481
If you want to know on what are based the costumes of the characters or most of weapons then yes, you need to.

Aside from that I just can't understand why people can gain interest on a spin off game without playing the main games.
>>
>>323247643
Oh good, another FF:E thread where 10 or so anons say they're going to get the game and then the thread archives.

I want to pick it up but I'm afraid it's going to be lackluster as fuck. This has online multiplayer right because none of my MonHun friends give a moogle about this game.
>>
>>323247643
what is this and where is a trailer I can watch.

>>323256920
Yes multiplayer.

>alexander
I'm sold.
>>
>>323256793
I think in MH terms, these 12 Eidolons are just the "Elder Dragons" of the game. The official trailers have shown other things that can't just be generic enemies. Like Gilgamesh.
>>
>>323256897
I think you got that backwards friendo. CC had great gameplay and shit aesthetic.
>>
>>323257345

So there ARE other monster bosses and the like those are just the 12 main ones that also are summons?
>>
What exactly is this game?
>>
>>323257345
okay, found JP wiki. Gilgamesh and Omega Weapon were JP DLCs, I believe we're getting all current JP DLC included in our base game.

But sort of mid-boss level shit:
A few (color) dragons
Zombie Dragon
Adamantoise
Cockatrice
Behemoth
King Behemoth
Mother Bomb
Malboro King
Sabotender
Tonberry King
>>
>>323247643
Got the CE pre-ordered. Just waiting on payment request now.
Going Dragoon. Getting dat Venus Gospel.
>>
>>323257802

Basically, its Monster Hunter with Final Fantasy monsters.
>>
>>323257802

monhun appearances
crystal chronicles gameplay
job classes instead of weapons
>>
>>323256225
probably because the spin off looks more interesting or is in a more interesting genre

My first game with Mario in the title was a Mario kart game, for example
>>
>>323258061
>>323258075
That seems cool. I like Monster Hunter.
>>
>>323247643
As long as the online isn't shit, I think most Final Fantasy fans who own a 3ds will be getting it.
>>
Do you get all the classes from the beginning or do I have to unlock them?
>>
>>323257345
So this is a MH-esque Action RPG?
if so I'm sold
>>
>>323258061
I gave up on MH because of the grind. Is this any better or should I just skip it?
>>
I heard you can wear the skin of various FF mainline characters. Do they do anything other than just be cosmetic? Will they give my access to their overlimits?
>>
I know I'm getting it, I just don't have any friends with a 3ds let alone the game.
>>
>>323258279
Progressively unlock. Mission Ranks 1-4 have job trial missions that unlock them. Then some of them are locked behind achievements of sorts (get beastmaster after creating 20 monster pals, Red Mage after unlocking Curaga, Firaga, Graviga).
>>
>>323258572
There's a crystal overdrive of whatever, you pick an avatar and when you charge the crystal you can change into the selected FF character with their own moveset for a limited time.
>>
>>323258664
Not bad. I wanna be a caster or maybe a beastmaster, only if Im allowed a beast along side me online and not only in singleplayer
>>
>>323258761
Interesting. Do you know what characters are available?
>>
A bit more on the fence about this now. Can't tell if it's more like Crystal Chronicles or Monster Hunter.
>>
>>323258991
This wiki lists:

Cecil
Bartz
Terra
Cloud
Aerith
Tifa
Squall
Tidus
Yuna
Lightning
Vaan
>>
>>323259243
I wish Firion was in there rather than three FFVII characters, but I'll take it.
>>
>>323259219
A lot of the early JP dissent on the game was that they expected Monster Hunter, got CC/MMO instead. If you're more of a MH purist, I'd wait for NA feedback.

Another huge complaint was that there's too much goddamn travel. Unlike MH, this game has one huge map. So imagine the entire MH island being one gigantic segmented map. If you're sent on a dual hunt of say Agnaktor and Glacial Agnaktor, in FFE terms that means you choose to start near the volcano, then after finishing Agnaktor are on your own to trek the entire way to the tundra on foot.
>>
>>323257198
Alexander is best summon.
>>
>>323258437
I'm hoping that this is like MonHun for casual babies.
>>
>>323259715
I;m also annoyed at the 2 ff10 characters. Why not just make it an even 12 characters with 1 from each? Onion Knight is even fairly well recognized.
>>
Anyone know what the character creator is like for this game? Is it just Male or Female? Or do you get thee head options per gender? Or can you change eyes/mouth/chin/nose/etc?
>>
Online will be fun.
>>
>>323259794
Thanks for the advice. I checked youtube, the gameplay looked a little underwhelming. I'll wait until it's released NA before making a full decision though.
>>
>>323259243
Seriously no FFIX characters?

Now that all 3ds games are free and able to play online, sure why not
>>
>>323260779
>Special Edition
Why?
>>
>>323260767
One of the videos I saw the dude gender swapped from an option within the game itself, so character regret potentially fixed any time.

But most of the shit I've been listing and talking about I've gleaned from the JP wiki/random youtube videos/trailers. JP got a huge demo that carried over into launch, so I guess there's a small chance character regret option was just in the demo before becoming final in retail?
>>
>>323260996
i like collecting the 3ds games with the cardboard box exterior
>>
>>323261108
Fair enough then.
>>
I might. Dunno.

is there a rought estimate of how much there is to do in this game?
>>
I played the jap demo and it seemed pretty shitty desu. Still mildly exited though (because of CFW).

nothing about summoning beasts?

You get a hardcover artbook, a music cd, and four exclusive weapons.

That edition seems to go in and out of stock a lot
>>
>>323262361
but that guy said those were elder dragons
elder dragons are boss monsters of boss monsters
>>
Me and my friends are dying for more crystal chronicles like games, but I keep hearing people give negative first impressions of this game. Although I already modded my 3ds and my friends are in the process so I guess we can just play it for free without risking our money

what the fuck is the point of a beast master if every class can master beasts

that's just fucking stupid

This time I'll wait for reviews. the last games I pre-ordered were Pokemon AS and Lord of Magna, I regret both of them.

Me and my friends all pitched in money to pre-order the 4-player bundle pack.

>>323262636
Beast master is not related to summoning, it's related to monsters

listed in order of excitement/desire to try out (1 being most excite):

1. Time Mage
2. Geomancer
3. Sage
4. Blue Mage
5. Red Mage
6. Bard
7. Black Mage

That image shows an Onion Knight, but my understanding is there's no actual OK Crystal Drive. That's just a generic FFE player character wearing some JP first press, limited edition quest armor set.
>>
>>323262965
It's OK armor, but OK is really just armor anyway since the character itself is just a blank slate anyway even in FF3

For sure. But I could see someone thinking they're gonna get some Dissidia influenced OK on an actual Crystal Drive. Just wanted to make sure it's just a sweet character armor set.
>>
>>323262636
Looks like the point of Beastmaster is the way the monster buddy system works.

Can't just go creatin' monsters friends all willy nilly. You need their soul stone which you'll have to farm by killing the specific monster a bunch. Beast Master's special ability is an attack that will up the drop rate to 100%.
>>
>>323247643
Oh goody! A game where your whole fucking team is Cloud

>>323263947

Already preordered and paid off. I'm putting blind faith in it. I better not be disappointed.

Day one purchase. Let's hope it's actually good.

>>323261957
Oh shit Geomancer gonna bell some niggas
>>
>>323261957
So how is sage not just straight up better than white mage and black mage?
>>
>>323264375
Yuna.
>>
>>323264853
I assume Sage will have much lower MP to balance it out
>>
>>323264853
Probably comes down to job innate abilities.

A dedicated White Mage has an innate threat reduction on their heals and has an ability that will regenerate AP to party members.

For damage, Black Mage's thing is that the lower their AP, the stronger their magic.

Sage has an overall AP cost reduction and then the Concentrate charge up the next spell.

Wouldn't surprise me if Sages hit harder in general, but BLM ramps ahead towards the end of their AP bar, making them play a little more risk/reward.
>>
>>323261957

One day, Calculator will be in another FF game and it will be just as broken as it was in FFT.
>>
>>323265630
Actually, I think I misunderstood. Looks like BLM just gets an "Attack Magic" AP cost reduction, might be stronger than Sage's general AP reduction, but no longer plays on that risk/reward of fighting low on AP.

Red Mage gets the AP/Damage increase scaling. On top of Chainspell which reduces cast times for 30 seconds. So Red Mage has the risk/reward play of riding on low AP to maximize damage.
>>
>>323256897
Square Enix in a nutshell
>>
>>323247643
Looks like MH with FF packaging and it already sounds better to me. I want to get it but money is short and I have to buy other things.

Plus I only have one first that is committed to playing it if we decide to get it
