So who's looking forward to the Remake?
Except it was toned down between Japanese and English releases to start with.
For the Zell anon earlier wherever you may be
/r/ing more 5/8/9 trio please?
I only have Zidane, sorry.
http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=50453764 might as well post the source to my Squall posts
I was gonna post that, but I figured /cm/ wouldn't like the tits in the background.
[spoiler]Also A+ filename.[/spoiler]
I have all this glorious art of Larsa, and while I agree he is the more qt of the Solidor brothers does anyone have anything more of the true hero of FFXII?
>“Larsa is as he should be.”
>(The Imperial Palace of Archades; reacting to Cid’s remark about Larsa’s sweet nature)
>Vayne does not deny that his only younger brother is sweet and somewhat naïve. He knows that his people need both – his ruthless strength and Larsa's gentle rule. And so Vayne continues to dirty his hands, to spare his brother from the same fate.
Truly the hero everybody deserved.
The hero Ivalice deserved and needed, but the hero it rejected.
Unfortunately, fanartists have largely rejected him too; pic related is largely all I have that hasn't already been posted, and I had to find it in fucking /ffg/ of all places.
Really, the only thing he ever failed at was living to see it all; can't be much of a new Dynast King if he's dead, and while Larsa's a pretty good person as far as people go, leaving an entire empire to him at twelve can't really be considered the best of all things possible.
Still though, pretty successful as far as final fantasy antagonists go.
AHA! Found them. They're http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=1165357 This person. I think they did mostly (for some reason) Mateus/Cecil art?
>All this Vayne
Now here's a thread I can get behind.
I've got a few more things that haven't been posted yet.
Aged-up Larsa isn't quite the same thing, but he's still attractive.
Not sure if this is allowed on /cm/ but the implied Vayne is nice.
>maximum filesize is 4Mb
Anyways I truly don't know why I saved this one or where I found it, but I've got it, so here.
Perhaps an alternate idea where Kuja and Zidane both act as Garland's Angels?
Thanks for the hearty chuckle.
Shame Arcadia didn't impose some fashion sense into Dalmasca when they had the time.
Does anyone feel like telling me what the flying fuck Vayne's pixiv tag is? I've searched all the logical possibilities, no luck, and I refuse to believe that there's just that little of him on that site.
>still no HD announcement
let the cries of N E V E R E V E R begin.
Yeah I tried that tag, out of 400+ results he barely gets a dozen of them.
And out of like 25 pages sorted chronologically, he only shows up on like the last five.
Thanks for indirectly reminding me how dead this fandom truly is.
On a slightly related note, I wish I could read nip sometimes, because I'd really like to know what's actually going on in this photoset.
Yeah, but at least those have been declared to actually be happening. Besides one guy slipping his mouth a few months ago we have literally nothing at all on anything XII-related.
If it is any consolation, you're not alone there. It depresses me how small the FFXII fandom, especially since I have next to nothing invested into the other FF games by comparison.
At the very most I found a cracky Ondore/Vossler comic on tumblr that finished recently. It hops the /cm/ and /y/ fence a few times but I had a good laugh.
It's such a fucking small fandom, and it only seems to be getting smaller. I have interests in other FFs, but XII is easily my favorite at least in terms of characters and world design, so seeing such a lack of activity wears at me a bit.
I remember that one, not a huge fan of the artstyle but it has given me multiple chuckles over the course of reading it.
tumblr is like DA for art: 99% shit and autism, but there are some decent works there if you know where to look or get lucky.
There's also some truly weird shit there, although I guess DA's got it's fair share as well.
Yep, time to invoke Sturgeon's law where +90% of the works are bad.
Artwise, I find tumblr to not be as cringeworthy as DA overall, but for everything else on tumblr, man the lifeboats.
It's not as cringe-worthy overall, but it makes up for it somewhat by containing the largest selection of just-under-mediocre artwork on the planet and easily the worst art styles, and since it convinces itself that those styles are good the shit self-perpetuates.
I just occasionally use tumblr for searching down art, fuck even attempting to use it for anything else. I've been told it's not that bad if you keep a close watch on exactly who you follow and vice versa, but fuck putting that much effort into that shit when I can come to a chin to get the same amount of social interaction,
You'll get no qualms from me there.
When in doubt, just stay neutral and avoid all the shitstorms with the tumblrinas. Don't go posting your opinions on stuff if it goes against the general hugbox and echo-chamber narrative of tumblr. Just reblog and/or like the art you're interested in.
Of course, such actions won't gain you many followers, but that's not a bad thing. All in all, it's much easier to hop on board here to shitpost, get called a faggot, shrug and go about your merry way. Agreed.
I can't even bring myself to put that much effort into that mess; better to just use the site as as another searchbar and still get everything useful out of it. 4chan may have more than it's fair share of cancerous faggots, and it may have a hell of a lot more of those than it used to, but it's still got nothing compared to 99% of non-anonymous communities.
Yeah, it's definitely not worth it to get invested in dumblr if it'll just act as an art browser.
That's what I do desu senpai, that's what I do.
I'll go see if I can scrounge up some more Imperial goodness in the meantime.
FFXII is what The Force Awakens tried to be and fell short of. I also agree it's a shame how small the fandom is compared to the other entries.
kek I'm glad you liked my filename. But now I have no fanart to post.
I'd kill for some Judge Magisters that aren't Gabranth.
... pardon Drace.
>that one artist that keeps drawing all that Vayne/Ondore
100% appreciate the dump anon.
>trying to find Bergen or Zaargabath
They're other things in this fandom that receive almost no attention, and Ghis doesn't get too much attention outside of two or three artists.
It's kinda sad really, the Archadians (outside of the traitors) don't really get much attention.
I'm getting towards the end of my Solidor folder guys, fuck I'm running out of things to post.
>over half of his lines are either outright praising Vayne or blatantly copying his speech patterns
I feel like if I saw him IRL there might be a bit more fear involved, but in-game the only reaction I could muster was a "he's right, you know".
>Error: Maximum file size allowed is 4 MB
well fucking hell there goes that gif. I guess I really have reached the end of my Solidor folder then. Here, have this straight from /ffg/ while I go find other things to post.
>we will never see this glorious hair in HD
why even live desu senpai
I hadn't looked in my FFX folder in years. SO MUCH AURON.
Have some Auron and Jecht as Ronin (or something?)
Alternately, have some koneko Auron. 0_o
I don't remember where I got them (the images are from 2002) but someone did an entire series of them.
It really rankles me that FF VI gets shafted as much as it does. FF I-IV have either had full on remakes or graphical overhauls. (No-one ever seems to care about V so it kinda just is...)
FFVI gets a remake in what seems like RPG maker. With terrible graphics.
Also, on the topic of the tumblrinis, wait till they get hold of the Remake Dress scene. Nomura doesn't give a shit what some 14 year old Yank teenager thinks, but the Fire Emblem Fates thing has set a worrying precedent for localisations.
Fates hasn't set a precedent for anything. Nintendo has always been censorship-crazy and getting increasingly zealous in the last few years (muh family-friendly image). It's a non-issue for all the other pubs.
>VI will never get a good remake either
fucking hell, this thread has reminded me of multiple bad feels now. I don't know who the fuck signed off on those sprite designs but I do know that they're nine simultaneous levels of faggot.
As for the localization bullshit, I don't think it'll end up being that bad. like >>3019687 said, Nintendo cares a lot of what the western market thinks than most nip developers, and given the state of tumblr they'll probably just think that the crossdressing is ~progressive~.
Also to be fair How much could they really censor? Given the premise behind the scene they'd basically have to take the entire thing out, and besides that there really isn't too much iirc (though I literally haven't played VII in almost a decade so cut me some slack) that would get that level of negative attention.
Fates is worrying, but I don't think we need to care too much when considering Square as they have a solid history of not giving a shit.
Leading off that topic, I get the feeling, if only from Cloud in SSB4 that Ninty and Square Enix are a lot closer than they used to be
FFVII Remake for NX?
Just like Konami and Nintendo were "close" because Snake made a cameo in Smash? If there's any console maker SE is currently close to, then it's Sony because as they both stated, they have a very clear shared goal - resuscitating hardcore console gaming in Japan. For that, Nintendo is useless, not to mention the latest NX leaks suggest that thing is probably dead on arrival, or at least will be another WiiU as far as third parties are concerned.
I feel like putting him in smash was just a marketing decision to get his face out there more to generate more hype/interest in the remake.
I wouldn't be too surprised if you were right, but I wouldn't bet on it either.
>FFVII Remake for NX
To be frank, if the NX fails in record time I wouldn't be surprised. Nintendo seems out of touch with reality these days to say the least.
>XII may never get a remake
>VI will never get a decent remake.
>FFIX will never get a remake
>No Kuja in glorious 4k HD.
I'm honestly of the opinion the series peaked at FF IX. X's a mess, XI is an MMORPG, XII is very good, but lacks a certain something, XIII is a catalogue of catastrophe, FFXIV needed a canonical reboot to get going and FFXV could either be GOTY or a mess.
They just seem to be aiming at markets that don't really exist, or at least not to the extent that nintendo's pretending they do.
>No Kuja in glorious 4k HD
I disagree with half of your other opinions but I'll join in this feel with you. At least he got into the dissidias and isn't complete shit in them, and at least IX finally (fucking finally) is getting a PC port. It may be a shit port, but at least it's a port.
I just wish Square/SE gave more attention to its previous games.
XIII gets a swarm of games while other legitimately good FF games are left out in the cold.
I suppose time will tell.
True. I suppose Square just thinks that 9001 XIII and VII games will sell better than any of the others, and although they're probably right it still produces some shitter shattering whenever I think about it.
Trust me, you're not the only one.
Where's my pillow I need something soft to sit on at this rate.
At least the popular FFs have some cute males; even if they aren't anywhere approaching Best Male status more art of cute boys is never a bad thing on it's own.
And damn senpais, trying to find decent non-Gabranth judges is taking a lot of effort.
Cute boys are always a plus.
I used to browse (more like fumble around) Japanese sites and blogs for art in the pre-pixiv days. Unfortunately many of those sites are long gone now.
