Final Fantasy: Zoolander.  I'm not looking forward to playing this.  Stage is set for yaoi add-on.
May not have to wait for that:

I liked how Celes took time out from fighting Kefka in Final Fantasy VI to complain that she couldn't find a boyfriend and  I hope some girly shenanigans are patched into Final Fantasy XV sharpish.

Where the wimminz at, yo?
There actually aren't any. The main dude is basically a Yakuza prince, and the other guys with him are his posse, wearing what are essentially gang colors.

Nomura and others have stated several times since 2008 or so that there aren't any women who join your party. The prominent girl in the trailer is the Juliet to your Romeo; your counterpart in another rival house that you're supposed to be fighting.

Red Mage in FF1 was a lady.
Was that an 8 bit theater joke?

Red Mage very much looked like a dude from what I saw.

Well, I remember reading it somewhere, so maybe that's where I got it from.  Not that it matters, anyway.  The characters are so generic that it really doesn't matter.  Let's say the White Mage is female, too.

I don't know, that sounds like some silly fanwank retconning.

   

       


I mean, possibly White Mage, but they didn't make them look very feminine other than having long hair.



Also, holy hell, I'm not sure wtf to make of this game...

They're pretty genderless in general.

So as a long-standing fan of (most of) the series, what am I supposed to be excited about for this new game?

I don't think they ever change the spelling of his name. Pretty sure it's always Cid.

I can't tell what's going on in that video at all. Is it not turn-based? Why does everything have to be an action RPG?

Well, last turn-based Final Fantasy was X in 2001, so...  Ohhhhh, I see.

But as someone else said this brings to mind something like Final Bayonetta XV: The Phanton Pain.

Is FF13 not considered turn-based? Admittedly it's been a while but I distinctly remember a gauge that had to fill up before you could take your turn again.. basically the exact same thing that happens in FF4-9.

Hell, if the action combat means you're not stuck in "THE TUBE" narrative tunnel from FF-13 that seems like an improvement.

No, in XIII the gauge defined the time in which you could decide what attacks to perform and queue up, but if you didn't in time enemies still attacked you, so no they are not waiting for your turn to be over until they take theirs. Oh, and your turn timer is about 3 seconds. So definitely not turn based, more like "real time on a 3 seconds global cooldown, and you can't move".

The "remake" of FF7 looks the same way.  It feels to me like a lot of AAA franchises are converging on that style, these days.  Fallout, for example, feels a lot more actiony than the original did.

That's not really a new thing for FF though. As far back as FFIV they've used the ATB system where enemies can still take action while you're choosing your attack/spell/whatever. You could usually toggle it to pause while you're in the menus, but doing so was considered putting the game on an easier difficulty and it was not default.

Keep in mind this thing originally started development ten years ago as FF Versus XIII from the guy who created the Kingdom Hearts game. It wasn't originally intended to be a mainline FF game.

I really liked the FFXII system and I wish they'd do it again, without the MMO inspired components (such as terrible, terrible drop rates for items).

They can do whatever the shit they want with the combat in this game - if it still feels like an endless hallway with monsters all lined up and shopping and upgrades via ipads instead of actual world locations, then they can go fuck themselves.

I don't mind the game being linear, these games generally cannot avoid it.  But don't make it so blatant, at least let me pretend that there is a world that I am exploring, with a secret cave, forest, or old man along the way.  Maybe I have to, you know, solve a puzzle or find an item before I can get to that next place. If we wanted FF to deviate so far from the formula, then we wouldn't want FF in the first place.

The FF7 remake is going to make a killing, if it only just holds to it's formula for the most part.

I don't mind linearity either, and I don't mind it being a hallway. To be honest, I like open world games and I also like hallways games on rails. I like action games, and I also like turn based games. I don't mind that some games are strictly into one system and stick to it over twenty years. When I get bored I just stop buying the new installment. It's mixing too many of these things for the sake of renovation usually makes me lose interest in a series I formerly loved.
