So I worked in this game for ~14 months, left development team in June (still have contact with a few pals)

Feel free to ask any question about the game. I wasn't a Final Fantasy fan before collaborating with Square so I didn't follow the project since it was announced as XIII Versus but I got a hold of some information, if you want it.

To sum up, my experience with the team was one of the best I had in the business, collaborating with S-E was amazing but if I'm being honest, the last five months or so were a bit painful. So, feel free to ask anything!
>>
What was your job?
>>
Why didn't you mates ask for another 6 months of dev time
>>
Did they cut content for DLC?

Are you overall satisfied with how the game turned out?
>>
>>360061371
I would rather not answer this to feel safer (even tho I told you to ask me about anything lol)

>>360061426
The game had to be released before this year ended period. It was a contract thing and that was set in stone before development with the new director started. That's why the last months of working in the game were painful (and I could not imagine how July-October were for my mates).

why is the game so unfinished

why are you still trying to fix this broken mess of a game with so many future updates announced

whats with all the dlc

what the fuck was the point of kingsglaive
>>
As someone who is an ff fan and enjoys the game, and assuming you're authentic, be real here.

why the fuck does the game go batshit in the last quarter? There's good stuff there, but it feels like you guys literally cut half the game out to get to it.

>>360061615
Sort of. Last year the game story got rewritten because fans kept asking to play as Gladiolus, Ignis and Prompto so they had to insert playable chapters for those characters into the narrative, but since we didn't have time to work on them, the decision to release them as downloads were made from the get go.

I know that there are some game levels, scenes and options that were cut because we couldn't finish them in time. I don't know if they will be released as downloads, but I hope they will.

I think the overall feeling towards how the game turned out is "we could have done more". The team literally ran out of time. There were such cool concepts and stuff that were left unfinished because we knew that they weren't going to make the release date. However, the team is pretty happy to have worked on the game and they didn't feel like they wasted their time. Now I'm sure they will continue to work on the game and improve it to match their vision.

>>360061938
Don't have a cat :(

>>360061959
The game IS unfinished. The game was delayed because the team felt like it would get destroyed by critics if released in the state it was in July and it was a last minute decision to delay it.

>>360062056
Most of the development time centered around the Lucis area. The later parts of the game were also supposed to have (smaller) areas for the characters to explore, but they weren't finished.

>>360062254
One of the main characters was called Ringo a lot by some people in the team. Guess who is it?

On the FF part. It kind of was mandatory to play the classic FF while working on this game, so I grew love for them. They are neat and I wish I had played some of them earlier.
>>
>>360063225
Can they patch in the unfinished stuff?

>>360063225

Because you forced them on a story which wasn't even well planned out to begin with.

What do you personnally think about the game you worked on? Something that you would want to changed or add?
>>
>>360063449
Some of it, yeah I'm sure they can release it later as downloads or repurpose the assets. But I fear that some levels are not going to be released since they wouldn't fit with the rewritten story.

>>360063493
... I have to agree that the game was too ambitious for the development time available to work on it.

Were Prompto, Gladio and Ignis killed by the Iron Giants?

what are you going to work on now?
>>
Who is the Izunia Ardyn mentioned to Noctis?
>>
inb4 this thread ends on news sites
Also OP, did you had acess to 13 versus builds?
>>
Why was the story pacing a mess? Chapter 13 was overloaded with important information that lacked a punch because of the huge volume of it and the cutting of scenes. Niflheim in complete chaos and the empire toppled by Daemons? We'll handle that with a few lines of exposition by Aranea. Ravus and Iedolas betrayed by Ardyn? Well, we will just throw Ravus' corpse at you as if his purpose in the plot wasnt already questionable. Seriously why is Ravus a character? Seems like Glauca stole his role or something.

Lets make the fucking emperor a shitty lv 30 imp after 10 seconds of screentime. Great decision Tabata. Removing Kingsglaive was a huge mistake.
>>
>provides no proof of working on it
>retards fall for it
>>
>>360061246
Any idea what any of the planned DLC episodes will be about specifically?

Also what happened to the Solheim region in the game? I heard that was where Prompto was born and it's where Nifflheim salvaged their advanced technology from an ancient civilisation.

>>360061246
Why was combat in this game so foreign to Tabata? Boss battles could have been the best thing ever with things like:
>a warp where you have momentum after teleporting like Nyx
>Grabbing on to large bosses and climbing SoTC style
>Emphasis on staying in the air and teleporting to certain points instead of just doing aerial moves in the same spot constantly.

Bosses were really botched in this game, the Leviathan fight felt fucking awfully boring to play.
>>
>>360063673
I don't think that type of material gets to leak, but who knows?

>>360063784
I don't know the whole story about Versus XIII but I heard teammates talk about some details and I also asked about some stuff, so if you want to know something maybe I can answer it.

>>360063790
In my opinion, the only problem with the development process is that we didn't have time and sometimes we spent development time creating stuff that wasn't part of the actual game just for promotional material. I understand that it needs to be done for the PR team, tho. Overall, I think the game turned out to be okay and I'm pretty proud to have worked on it.

>>360063782
I didn't get fired, my contract didn't get renewed.

>>360063814
I didn't solve any problem per se, but the porting to console system process got on my nerves.

>>360063915
They respect the game and I haven't heard anything bad about the game other than it disappointed the fans and that some of the design choices were very questionable.

>>360063929
At the end of the game, you say? I think it was supposed to be left open for interpretation. If I recall correctly, they weren't suppose to have any death scene or anything so I assume they are alive.

>>360064030
I'm at a negotiation process right now again with a former employer.

>>360064086
What Izunia? If you mean the Izunia from a thousand years ago, that is Noctis' ancestor.

>>360064175
No but we used material (assets, concept arts, etc) to work on the game.

Specifically, I'd like to know how the arms summoning power worked plotwise in Versus XIII. In XV only those of the royal line can use it, but Ardyn has a red version which is never explained. Stella also had a red version in an early trailer. Was it linked to Etro previously?

Besides Tabata, of course.
>>
>>360065231
>vague answers

>>360064559
What purpose did Ravus serve though? After Kingsglaive I wondered did he seek the ring because he wanted to lick Niflheims ass for the time being but then use the ring to take back Tenebrae? Was he an opportunist biding his time? Nope, we saw no development in the game. Before we know it he is gone.

I compared Glauca and Ravus because I assumed Ravus was the one who killed Regis in the Versus XIII storyline, hooded guy from the earlier trailers.

Why does Cindy have no ass?

Sorry for answering late dudes, the thread is moving fast.

>>360064282
As I said, the focus of most of the development time ended up being the Lucis area so the later parts of the game had a lot of cut content that wasn't ready. However, as far as I know, the fact that the empire is completely in chaos once you get to it never changed.

>>360064373
They are about the party members and they introduce new mechanics built around them. But work on them barely started before I left.

In regards to the Solheim region, we never worked on it. It wasn't cut, so I guess it didn't fit the story the game was trying to tell.
>>
>>360061246

Was it expected from the team for the game to be so critically mixed
>>
>>360064904

Just say what you know about the story Versus XIII.
>>
>>360064617
Talking about the Leviathan level, I remember the level design being a bit different last year and it had to be sort of redesigned because it didn't run well and the engine was having problems.

>>360065162
I'm probably wrong about this since I'm not that familiar to plot terms and stuff from the 13 universe but I think more than one crystal existed in the game and that each crystal had a family which acted as bodyguards. Noctis was part of the Lucis family and the heroine was part of the other family. And the game had a lot to do with death so Noctis was continously using the weapons of dead family members.

>>360065182
When I was told that a certain level (snowy area with Shiva statue) was going to get deleted anyway after working on it for weeks nonstop and then having to work on a bootleg version for that level.

>>360065406
The team had to keep a lot of things from the past projects because the former director shared details about them. I assume Ravus was one of those things that had to be kept because details about him were previously announced.

However, I have to say that the story had to be partly rewritten last year (after the movie had entered full production) so that's why that character might have inconsistencies between the game and film.

>>360065903
I don't know about that but I would buy the game now and then buy the download content instead of waiting.

>>360066315
I heard that the team had to change and delete certain scenes about her because they portrayed her in a way that would have been criticized nowadays. And like what happened with everything else, it seems like her role in the story wasn't able to get fixed before release.

Is SE planning to stop making their own wasted engines? It seems like it took XIII forever to get out the door (Crystal Tools which was never really used again outside the XIII trilogy) and Luminous is an outdated mess? The company could have spent more time on cutscenes, story, and world building if they hadn't insisted on making their own engine and just used something like Unreal?
>>
>>360067858
If he had a position that wasn't garbage tier (i.e. contractor / temp staff) he'd have easily access to such data really.

You certainly cannot determine how much a game did cost based on your salary and the ones of your few colleagues, especially not on a project that large.

Whose idea was it to squeeze the final three summons so late into the game? You spend an enormous amount of time with just Ramuh and Titan, then you literally dont get to use Shiva, Leviathan or Bahamut at all except against Ifrit. What was the reasoning behind that?

Ifrit is an angry astral in the story who sides with Ardyn and doesnt like humans. Was this a lazy reason Tabata invented as an excuse to not make him a summon?

Also was it Bahamut that Regis was speaking to in Omen? Was Bahamut referring to the plague when he said "I have seen many deaths" and Noctis when he said "now I am looking forward to one"? Did Noctis become the Immortal in this trailer, like Ardyn did millenia ago?

Also was Iedolas' role in the story canned? Were there any scenes of him and the Niffs getting wrecked by daemons?

Finally was there any discussion on whether Noct would react to Nyx's body in the throne room? Did they know each other?
>>
>>360066778
Is there an essential after life for Noctis and his wife that was going to be where they can be together? Kinda of pains me to see a formation of love never kindle because the rushed writing decided to kill her off extremely early.

1, Was Tabata a poor director? My impression of him is that he lacks a vision and just does what online forums and his superiors tell him to.

2, In broad strokes, how was the story changed from Versus to XV?

3, Why does the game look sort of bad? Was it the engine limitations? Is that why FFVIIR is on UE4?

4, What do you think of the game? Are you proud or do you feel it was rushed and mismanaged?

these cinematics are literally worse than some of FF7's cutscenes
>>
Why haven't you guys commit sudoku?
>>
>>360066360
Good thing you ask that because I remember stories about the people in charge of the team wanting to change the designs of the main protagonists and a bunch of contractual problems surfacing or something like that. To sum up: the decision to have the characters designed this way was made a long time ago and they had to use those designs for a large part of the game.

>>360066480
Actually, some members expected harshed results because there wasn't enough confidence that his vision for the game was shared by everyone. As far as I know, the game is succeeding expectations.

>>360067110
There were references to the heroine having been abused by other characters, some scenes would have featured Luna crying because of her health and there were also mentions of her goal in life being meeting the male protagonist's expectations/objectives, which the team considered that were going to be problematic since the game had been carrying a bad reputation because of the way they portrayed female characters.

>>360066365
The game centered about death, ghosts and hallucination/dreams. Noctis killed the female protagonist before the game started but he didn't remember. Ardyn was Noctis ancestor and he was responsible of the crystals disappearing over time (the only one left was Lucis crystal). Regis died in front of Noctis because his bodyguards betrayed him. The protagonists had to leave the capital because their nation lost the war.

The game didn't focus on summons that much (they still existed) and instead there were actual gods which didn't appear physically. One of the gods was the main antagonist of the first FF game. Each nation was inspired by a different capital of the world. The empire was using ghosts as weapons. Ravus wanted to kill Noctis for having killed her sister. The game ended in another dimension which was supposed to be their version of the after-life.

It's hard to remember every detail.

It's perfectly understandable not wanting to reveal your exact position. But at least give some proof that you worked there (and that's possible without revealing sensitive information; a simple picture of your employee card with your name/photo hidden is a start. Or even a payslip (hide name, salary, and things like that).

>>360069476
They were unsure of how Luna would be portrayed yet tried their fucking balls off on Cindy's design and she's nothing more than a glorified cum dumpster?

Will we have a chance to see Aranea, Cid, Cindy, Iris, and Cor in the post-time skip ever? The game even goes out of their way to mention them, but we never encounter them. (I can't believe we get more interaction with Talbott than even the 4 main characters. Why do they say "let's go inside, Noct" but I can't talk to any of them and see how their lives have been in the past decade?)

I liked him and he's an excellent professional. He gets job done at very difficult circustamnces. The engine didn't adapt well to consoles and had limitations. I'm proud to have worked on the game but I think the company should have given it more development time. I don't know about FF16. There were a lot of designs and concepts scrapped, some of them by Ferrari, yeah.

>>360069951
There wasn't any character model for that outfit so I don't know.

>>360070168
There was concepts for a city that looked like old London with british bridges and architecture, I don't know about the rest.

The artwork used for the Gralea capital in the game was taken straight out of the Versus project, so I guess it remained the same. The throne room however was different and the Emperor sat there waiting for Noctis. This was still in the game last year.

I suspected this. Well thanks for answering my questions. Tabata was probably stuck between a rock and a hard place then.

Do you think it was a mistake to let go of Nomura and Versus instead of just building on Versus? From the 2011 Versus gameplay trailer, it seemed like a good chunk of Versus was already done.

Guys, remember 6 months ago when someone claimed to be from SE and told us the ending of the game, we all laughed at him and called him a retard, then it turned out he was right.

OP, any reason for making Ignis blind aside from immense player-pain? It still remains the most upsetting part of the game

How did the game come out unfinished when it was in development for so long??? I get that directors and teams changed hands, but you all must have had a solid 3 or 4 years of making this after it turned from XIIIVS to XV, right? Can you explain what the fuck happened with the dev cycle that everything was so rushed?

What's with the blatant product placement? Was SE that desperate for the money?

Do you know just how many FFXV leaks have happened on 4chan by now? The entire story was leaked months ago and nobody believed it. Usually, if you're well read about a game, you can spot pretty easily when someone is geniune. This guy most likely is. Sometimes XV-kun will pretend he's a leaker to control narrative but it's easy to see through.
>>
>>360070606
Some spooky shenanigans for sure anon. The sheer amount of prepped CGI scenes that never made it seems like an incredible waste of time. There was another scene from the Uncovered trailer where Noct said ''thanks for everything dad, I'll take it from here'' and put on the ring of the Lucii outside in a sunny environment. Seems like there were shenanigans as to when Noct would decide to wear the ring even as late as this year. I'm beginning to believe the leaker in him saying that the snowpass where Shiva died was a playable level that was cut.

The end part of the game was supposed to be bigger. I know for a fact that dark world Lestallum was finished. Old Iris was also featured in some scenes. Cindy too (and I also recall them not wanting to change the Cindy design even though it was problematic because her older design implied character development).

>>360070930
There was supposed to be a small dungeon in Tenebrae which also got cut. If I recall correctly, the invasion didn't begin until the protagonists entered the city.

>>360070959
I haven't heard anything about the former director, but the project needed to change directors because the company needed a mainline game to be shipped in 2016 which appealed to mainstream trends and they trusted Tabata to do it.

Its the truth. There is no place for turn based RPGs anymore when you can create what you want to more easily now in terms of combat systems.

Imagine this.

KH1 in the late 90s was turn based as opposed to what it actually was and then KH2 came out and it still played the exact same. Nobody would complain at all because its fluid and shows off the flash of a Square title far better. This is why turn based is gone now. It was mostly just sitting around waiting on commands and then watching them play out, as opposed to physically doing everything yourself and getting the chance to move around and have combat flow a lot more smoothly.

Turn based was fun, but it has no place anymore. Just the same as bland flat overworlds can now be shown in detail and scenery with open-world.

Some games and companies still use it yes, but they would benefit from not using it. Persona, SMT, Pokemon, etc. They'd flow a lot better having physical control. Persona/SMT probably flowing something similarly to the Tales of series but having its own style and Pokemon could be a variety of things.

There just isn't much point when better combat systems can be made.

FFXV actually feels like an older FF adapted to more modern times. Considering the long development time and massive changes over the years, I was fully expecting it to be a massive disappointment on the likes of FF13, I was pleasantly surprised by how the game felt and turned out. It really does feel like an old FF game meets modern times, which is something its needed for awhile. Very akin to the jump to 3D with FFVII. I'm not gonna say its better than VII, XV certainly still has its flaws like anything else, but the game is definitely still FF.
>>360072313

>>
>>360072342
Pokemon and maybe Persona sure. But SMT? No. SMT is more a strategic turn based RPG instead of tradition level grinding RPG. Its more of a puzzle game rather than getting higher and higher level because your stats doesn't really affect the game as much as FF or Pokemon. You have to understand weakness and resistances and plan out how you play the game before you start the battle. The battle training in SMT 4 is probably one of the most fun and creative way turn-based battle has been used.
>>
>>360072681
>FFXV actually feels like an older FF adapted to more modern times.
BUll fucking shit. It's another goddamn FF13 but they removed the SWOOSH when you enter an encounter. The story is nonsense even to people who watched the movie and the stupid anime. Paying attention doesn't make the gibberish any clearer.

There was a game here, they fucked it up and still tried to polish it with their sleeve and sell it, well I'm not buyin' it

Aesthetic-wise, then, since it's still easily the worst of all the FF's design choices. Enough that if their personalities really are good, I'll be more ashamed they're stuck in such faggy bodies.

They recently made an announcement about free updates adding more cutscenes to the second half. They specifically mentioned cutscenes added that would flesh out and explain Ravus motivations.

Does this sound like stuff that was originally going to be in the game but had to get cut? Or does it sound like completely new content being made after the fact?

As far as I know, the game started as one single game, then the story got expanded more and the former director wanted to divide it into parts, but then it was condensed again as one single game by the new team.

That stuff was cut but they will have to rewrite and re voice those scenes since I assume they are not entirely compatible narrative wise with what the final game showed.

Not that guy, but I can kinda answer that one based on what's already been said, and from base inference.

The actual game on store shelves right now did piggyback some assets and code, but for the most part really only started development only a year or so ago. Maybe as much as two, but not any more than that.
There's been three, maybe four individual, distinct, independantly developed versions of the game;

>Fabula Nova Crystalis Versus 13
>Little to no actual development made. The entirety of 13 was a shitshow, inside and out, made worse by the absolute disaster that was Vanilla FF14
>Independent Versus 13
>Directed by Nomura, this version is VERY different from the last one, and the rumors are that it was about 80% complete before they decided to port it from the Crystal Tools engine to the Luminous engine
>Final Fantasy 15: Luminous engine
>Running on "PS4 approximate hardware" as opposed to an actual PS4, AND there's a lot of bullshotting, which is why it looks so good. The story is roughly 75% of what we got, but the game is far from finished
>Final Fantasy 15 1.0
>Nomura replaced as director, game basically rebuilt from scratch to run on ACTUAL PS4 hardware, and then downgraded further to run on XBone. Story was solidified by this point, but there was little in the way of actual content to complete, and a lot of the GAME part of the game was still left to be conceptualized, as well as a huge emphasis on taking fan feedback into account. That's why the UI changes a LOT, and most of the story was either relegated to the movie, or jettisoned outright, because there was no other way to reconcile all the loose ends.

Thanks.

So, Episode Prompto is gonna be how he learns about his past right? Does he get to meet and fight with that old researcher dude from the empire?

And episode Ignis we get to see how he loses his eyes (and he gets to fight ravus), correct?

in regards to how much work on certain aspects was already completed, tell me what you think the liklihood of each of the following happening as updates or DLC:

Expanded world of ruin in story/gameplay or both.

expanded story and scenes of luna and her relationship with Noctis before her death

expanded story and scenes for the empire

Also, I want to know, what exactly was the reasoning behind killing off Luna when she has so little character development? We barely get to know her or see how much she and noct supposedly like each other before she dies. We don't get a chance to love and care about her before she dies, and it makes that story element weaker.

Also, tell me about the original leviathan fight before they reworked it. I know you said it ran poorly, but tell me what was different about it, both in gameplay and spectacle.

Also, was there ever anymore to the final boss fight with Ardyn? And where there ever any plans to implement the lore about Ifrit's betrayal and Ardyn's connection with Ifrit (which currently only exists in the strategy guide)

Well, the first stop after Altissia had an (smaller) open world area and you could drive the car alone.
There was a level leading up to when you encounter the Shiva statue.
The dark world section of the game featured more enviroments, you encountered each party member in different locations and you could explore part of Lestallum.
The final boss (which was another Ardyn form) got cut early this year.
The Tenebrae invasion happened after the protagonist entered the city and you got to explore a very small section of the city and Luna's chamber.
Scenes that featured Luna got cut because they were considered to be problematic.
Cor got written out of the last half of the story since it made no sense for him to show up (he was Noctis companion during the small open area after Altissia).

Why the game runs so badly on PS4? I thought at least frame pacing should be a fucking standard to have in AAA game. You can even have dips but if you don't have proper frame pacing it doesn't matter you advertise as a 'next gen' console. Why it is so bad? Blurry textures, bad antialiasing, hair system looks worse than FFXIII and gets dithering everywhere...I can go on.

Any chance we'll see World of Ruin DLC? I'd kill to explore the dark world

Did the decision to go open world cause the majority of good side quests to get cut?

This one's easy: did they actually rip the male Elezen animation from XIV and use it on Adult Noctis? Took me a minute to recognize it, but I'm almost certain that's the running/sprinting animation he uses

>Well, the first stop after Altissia had an (smaller) open world area and you could drive the car alone.

This would have been great. I loved the isolation and alienating atmosphere before you do the dungeon in Chapter 10. It would have been great to drive the car alone while listening to a noctis monologue relaying his inner thoughts and feelings about the situation. That could have been great.

>There was a level leading up to when you encounter the Shiva statue.

This could have been good too, this portion of the game needed more gameplay.

>The dark world section of the game featured more enviroments, you encountered each party member in different locations and you could explore part of Lestallum.

I really hope they add this back in somehow. Even if they have to rewrite part of Chapter 14 to make it work.

>The final boss (which was another Ardyn form) got cut early this year.

I need to hear specifics about this fight and what it was like and reasons why it was cut. I always felt like there was a piece of the final battle missing, and how it was weird that your friends just instantly show up next to you in the cutscene right after you kill him.

>The Tenebrae invasion happened after the protagonist entered the city and you got to explore a very small section of the city and Luna's chamber.

Like I said before, I would be fine for them rewriting this chapter to make this still happen. It wouldn't change the overall story- just this chapter, and It would make it work.

>Scenes that featured Luna got cut because they were considered to be problematic.

SJWs ruining good things again.

>Cor got written out of the last half of the story since it made no sense for him to show up (he was Noctis companion during the small open area after Altissia).

Am I correct in assuming that Cor only exists because he was already everywhere in promo material for Versus 13? He feels forced in nearly every single scene he is in.

I don't know about this Versus XV thing but I highly doubt it's true. The only games being developed around FF15 are for mobile last time I heard, so it might be one of them, but like I said, I highly doubt it.

>>360074409
I don't think they will make the world of ruin levels that were unfinished explorable unless there is more story dlc planned. I doubt they will release the Luna scenes since the response would not be good, but the deleted scenes about the empire might get released.

Like I said, Luna was featured in more scenes but they got cut. The original Leviathan fight combined interiors and exteriors and many enemies on screen, Luna also appeared.
Like I said earlier, the final form for Ardyn was cut early this year. I haven't heard anything from the strategy guide but it might not have updated information about the story.

You still have control over your party members. Its no different than selecting attack for them in Turn Based games. They just now do it automatically along with spells when they have them.

Items, Techs, etc. are still relocated to your control as they have always been.
>>360072917
I'll concede that SMT relies more on strategy than most other RPG series, even then you could pull an FFTactics or FE with SMT, it gives you more freedom of control, while allowing for more strategy and thoughtful and engaging gameplay.

But that is just my opinion on the matter.
>>360072929
It is most certainly not FFXIII in anyway beyond the the open-world segment towards the end of XIII (which was by far the best part of the game and was actually fun).

As for the story, it is stupidly simplistic and easy to understand. I have yet to watch the Anime or Kingsglaive and I understand it perfectly fine. Its one of the most simplistic and easy to understand stories that FF games have, which says a lot.

And yes, there actually is a game there, I'm not gonna say things couldn't have used polish in some places or that it isn't flawed. But its certainly one of the better FF overall in terms of designs despite said flaws and unpolish.
>>360073181
For Pokemon you'd have a degree of control over the direction of moves and the ability to avoid said moves. It'd allow for something a bit more dynamic and akin to two monsters fighting instead of standing around waiting on each other to move, with most things being relocated to pure RNG (such as moves missing).

As for Persona, I think it would flow a bit better in terms of precision attacks and the ability to swap on the fly with a dedicated button for Persona (think Bayo Weapon switching) without having to go through a menu, just have them preset and let them fly, which opens up varied playstyles in which you can run around and attack the enemy. It'd be no different than running around the hub but also being able to fluidly attack.

Whats the reasoning behind Ardyn seeing Nocts friends with him for a moment inside the Crystal, or Luna touching his arm?

Better yet, in the scene on the train when Gentianna reveals she is Shiva, what is the deal with Noctis seeing Ghost Luna for a second?

Are you deliberately missing the point? No one's saying the problem with FFXV's story is that the context is outlandish, it's that it's lacking. The story is clearly unfinished and plot elements and characters are introduced and abandoned in the blink of an eye. You can post all these parts of other games in all caps and they'll obviously seem completely out of left field but it's not like the lifestream and Jenova were things that were brought up out of nowhere and then forgotten about.

>>360077724
Pure shoehorning of fanfiction. Omen is hard to make sense of. The trailer seems to imply that Noctis will himself become the immortal and kill Luna, and also that a guide along the way has been misleading him (Pryna).

We might interpret the battle between Noctis and Luna with the Cerberus' watching them as a hypothetical use of Ardyn's illusions (he makes Prompto look like himself in the game - Noct ends up attacking Prompto and throwing him off a train outside Gralea). So it may be Ardyn making Luna appear as himself so that Noct will try to kill her. Noct did end up losing his weapons and Pryna did die as well. Noctis dreams about this in a hotel bed in Lestallum, my guess is that it was Ardyn fucking with his head, just like how he strings up the four illusionary corpses above the throne at the end of the game.

Fuck that, every FF since 8 has been a production disaster, with the exception of 9, and that's only because 9 wasn't originally developed as a mainline title.

If only they have showed us Luna's own journey (her waking up/fighting the summons) then she really does have more role than Stella. Too bad the game failed showing it. Also iirc, one of the leakers said that in the original script, Luna survives and joins the group in the 10 year timeskip. I suppose they scrapped that as welll.
>>
>>360083376
Because Final Fantasy XIV 1.0 crippled the company, rebuilding XIV resulted in many games delayed or cancelled, and by the time Versus got any traction, they canned it so they could rework it to FF15, because it would be more than 7 years between single player mainline FF games if they didn't.

When was the decision made to gut the Insomnia invasion and ruin FFXV's introduction? If they had 6 more months to actually fix the retarded plot in the 2nd half, the overall pacing, and added the invasion, this game could've been something special.

Anyone else pissed off that the entire map of Tenebrae was the size of a swimming pool?

I worked on the game. OP is full of shit though he did get lucky on the Shiva area being cut. Most of the stuff on that entire continent was cut.

>The game centered about death, ghosts and hallucination/dreams. Noctis killed the female protagonist before the game started but he didn't remember. Ardyn was Noctis ancestor and he was responsible of the crystals disappearing over time (the only one left was Lucis crystal). Regis died in front of Noctis because his bodyguards betrayed him. The protagonists had to leave the capital because their nation lost the war.
>The game didn't focus on summons that much (they still existed) and instead there were actual gods which didn't appear physically. One of the gods was the main antagonist of the first FF game. Each nation was inspired by a different capital of the world. The empire was using ghosts as weapons. Ravus wanted to kill Noctis for having killed her sister. The game ended in another dimension which was supposed to be their version of the after-life.
Yep, sounds like a Nomura game. Also, it's funny how people are hyping Stella as if she's the final boss when she was dead all along. (Also killed by Noctis himself) This would explain why she only ever had interactions with Noctis too and Noctis has the ability to see the dead.

Solheim was cut. Col was supposed to reappear and help out there and die for drama.

You people are fucking retarded.

>>360097194
Yes. At the very end.
>>
>>360097227
None of that shit about Ravus and Stella was ever in the script.

Ravus was supposed to be a villain 100% up until rewrites at the beginning of this year.

In V13 he was supposed to be the penultimate boss of the first game. He was a mage and the guy in the hood. After the switch to XV he remained a villain who was supposed to have been a mid-boss a few times before showing up corrupted in the imperial capital. His sole motive in both versions was revenge against Insomnia, Regis and Noctis for his mother's death.

This is further undeniable proof that OP is full of shit.

Izunia being the name of Noctis' ancestor is a fan theory. There is no significance to the name in the script and design documents, it's just a name and nothing more.
>>
>>360076643
Luminous was just a lighting engine at the start with the possibility of using for FF7 which is why Cloud was used as the mascot.

Agni's Philosophy was what was thought to be the base spec for the next generation. It fell hard considering the PS4 never reached that level. They probably designed the game engine around, then downgraded as they went along.

That part about Regis is somewhat believable, there was a Versus XIII trailer years and years ago and it had a scene where Regis was telling Noctis that he would never give Noctis the throne
>>
>>360099706
>Did the transition to open world kill all most of the good side quests
It was always supposed to be open world and road trip themed, even with Nomura on the project. But side quests were always low on priority.

>Any chance we'll see World of Ruin expanded upon?
It's been proposed but not worked on. Probably depends on sales and demand. It's still mostly patches being worked on right now.

>Is Adult Noctis actually using the male Elezen running and sprinting animations from FFXIV?
Didn't actually work on technical stuff so don't know. I did have access to design docs and the script and sat in on most of the meetings, but wasn't involved in the lower stuff.

This was never the intention of the line. The translation team bungled it and idiots like you decided to run a fucking mile with a badly-phrased translation. In Japanese he just says "Izunia? I don't even remember where I got that from".

Is this actually a thing that non-white non-male gamers care about? I'm a white dude and I give zero shits about what the characters I play as look like. Black guy, asian woman, latino guy, I don't care. Is that just because I'm white and the majority of protagonists are too?

Is there any truth to the "rumors" about Nomura redoing Versus XIII in a spinoff, or reusing its plot elements in KH3 or something?

>>360100794
To elaborate: V13's script for the first game was entirely complete start to finish. The whole plot. Second game was half done, third was only a vague outline with the general direction that the game was to go in. Empire was to remain until the end of the second game which was why the big cast of empire bosses which got cut to just Ravus (not even a mage anymore) and Aranea in XV. Some work on the first game was done before switching to XV but no work was done on the second and third though some of the stuff from them (everything on the second continent for example) was brought into XV anyway.

To elaborate

-They had no idea how to write business e-mails in Japanese
-Their pronunciation was atrocious
-Whenever anyone spoke at a normal pace they'd look puzzled and either the speaker would have to repeat themselves or someone else who spoke both languages would have to translate for them, either there or later.

They were chosen solely based on paper credentials and connections.

>>360102276
The first game is completely different from XV and incomplete as a story (it's an "end of disc 1" moment), plus half of that script was rewritten into Kingsglaive.

I'm talking about OP. The one who said Stella died pretty much right at the beginning. During the invasion.
>>
>>360071164
>>360070931

Stella had 5 minutes of screentime and is dead so doesn't developed as a character. Luna already has more screentime than Stella will ever have and with us seeing her burdens of her duty weighing on her health and put into important situations. If not for Luna then Noctis wouldn't even have the ring of the lucii to become king and stop the plague. Stella was just some dead bitch that no one but Noctis could see and didn't do anything important.

Stella mattered even less than Crowe did in kingsglaive.
>>
>>360071256
That thanks dad thing and putting on the ring was used with older Noctis in insomnia, they probably just wanted to not reveal the time skip at that point.

Birth by Sleep trailer to final game did the same thing with scenes taking in say destiny islands in the trailer happening at the keyblade graveyard in the final game
