"We wanted to create a character for Final Fantasy XV that, when you are playing him, he represents this sort of a person you wish you could be," Hajime Tabata explained to me. "Like, you're young, you have a whole world in front of you, you are too cool for all the little problems."

Tabata started fidgeting with his pen. "Like, they're just, like, so cool, you know? It's like, you're playing him and it's like, it's, ... even his problems are cooler than your problems, and ... you just, you're way cool, doing all this stuff you were never allowed to do because dad was ..." at this point, Tabata words became muttered and unintelligible, though I was able to pick "girlfriend" and "even lets you touch her hair" out of it.

"So which character is it that you're talking about?" I asked, interrupting him. "Which one is this character?"

His gaze shifted to the floor. "Uh, the, the really good looking svelte one with the swept back hair, and dreamy eyes and the boyish handsomeness, and the ..., the dark, neomodern biker-inspired clothes, that, um ... "

"Which of those four?"

There was a visual style model poster for each of the four main characters on the wall behind him, so he turned around in order to point him out to me. "It's that one? Well, it's one of these, h .. hang on, ..."

After failing to differentiate them visually, he resorted to reading the measurements on the "suppleness of wrists" master style index, which had been the development team's quick go-to reference for when they had to be sure who they were rendering in a given cutscene.

While he was distracted with doing that, I leaned over the desk and saw a manuscript open to a page of the plot that Tabata was writing for the primary protagonist.

It read: "...hajimbo said 'i could use a bath' he said to no one in particular devil-may-care, that's how little he cared, he was so cool. answers to the listless angst which is their lives may come, out there, on the horizon, the horizon he dared not let it look like he cared about it, as they drove into the horizon. 'god, i have to pee' he added with a slight scoff and a cool smirk to let everyone know how above he was about caring about anything, especially this, but he did have to pee. when he did pee it would be with a really relaxed posture so you can see how disaffected and above it all he is, as he searched for his destiny which was coming to him and..."

At this point, Tabata saw me reading, and quickly snatched up and clutched the whole manuscript to his chest, tightly. He was stuttering out something about 'slash spoilers' for the alternate reality disc of the game.

My wife will love this, especially if the four characters find that they actually do like being intimate with each other.

That looks fucking awesome.

I'm not joking. It's like a ridiculous goddamn absurd mashup of KDramas and terrible Japanese stereotypes and Final Fantasy XII.

Gameplay looks like a cross between Kingdom Hearts and FF12, which could be the greatest thing ever if they don't screw it up.  Kind of psyched for this one.  Still no official word on a PC port, though, AFAIK.

Looks kinda great, but the rote combat ruins it.

Still awaiting for an RPG to implement something else than a straight up hit point system. P&P is full of interesting systems, but video game developers are completely unable to progress past D&D.

me being mean to the new director of the project. it's super unfair because it's not like its his brainchild, ... no, its the kdrama trainwreck project eight years into development hell that got dropped on his doorstop and he's left to get something, anything out of it.

Watching the trailer couldn't help but think "that looks like boy band version of Brutal Legend".

Bro Trip the JRPG is a far more interesting thing than "Fight an evil empire and then kill god for some reason" which has been like most of the FF series.

Do the red soles mean they've shed blood, or that they're anti-fascist skinheads? I must know the lore of this land.

This is a Final Fantasy title, it's going to take a team of experts some serious study to answer that.

There was a female in the trailer, but there's no indication that she'll be a playable character.   This does initially seem very much like the "bro" edition of Final Fantasy.

Not really. All of the main Final Fantasy titles except maybe the first one (can't remember now) have had female characters you could have in your party.

Ack, attempt at humor = failed.

I meant that Final Fantasy (Nomura especially) character designs are often seen as a bit... femmy... at least in some of the circles I've gamed in.

I have no problem if the game turns out to be a Bro Road Trip. In fact, I hope it does just so we can revisit why the patriarchy is keeping wild monsters down.
