MOD POST

So this thread is super old, super long, and the OP is permabanned. Me and Harrow want a new FF thread for 2022.

Would anybody here care to start a new FF megathread and make the obligatory huge OP detailing the history of the franchise?

I volunteer and will do my best, but if someone feels particularly strongly about doing it they can take on this truly enormous responsibility that definitely matters a lot and is very important

I'd like to make a request for positive thinking in the next thread, wherein we refer to every game as the best one in the series. Thank you.

Can't disagree. They're all good games or they wouldn't have made so many of them.

That's fine, every game is absolutely the best and relatively the worst.

Unless I missed an announcement, the other reason you're having trouble is because there isn't a Switch release.

Bloody Hell, I read "steam and Mobile" as "steam and Nintendo Switch" somehow. Weren't the others on Switch? Have I been saying "well I don't want those enough to pay for them right now, I'll wait for V and see if they do something about the font" about four games that don't even exist?

The pixel remasters are all, for some reason, not being put on Switch. Why? Who knows. I'd buy them there if I could.

My suspicion is that since there are six games all running on a unified code base, when they're patching an issue that's a core issue, like if they wanted to change the font, they'd have to patch them all, and they don't want to pay Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft six times over for patch distribution fees. I'm confident console ports will be announced a little while after 6PR is out.

The console versions will probably be out before your Deck arrives if you haven't ordered one already lol

How dare you slander the good name of Colonel Jihl Nabaat, a character that probably has some voice lines somewhere I don't really know.

Lmao at when Jihl and Yaag were heavily featured in early trailers and hyped to be major antagonists. I regularly forget Yaag was even a character.

He has a cool robot fight in the last good part of the game. More than Jihil managed.

Jihil's most important role is a mid-tier DLC boss in FFXIII-2 and that says everything about her.

My fav FF13 detail is that they hired a lady from New Zealand to voice Vanille and then told her to do an Australian accent

Or they'll just bundle them together in a collection after the last one is finished. That way they just have to pay to push one update through.

New FF thread is up, here: https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3983885

I'll probably update it intermittently here and there-- especially if someone tells me to.
