You know Nintendo Direct – now meet Square Enix Presents. That’s the name of the company’s live-at-E3 video series, which it’ll be broadcasting via YouTube.
Square Enix Presents promises coverage on the company’s E3 line-up, which is expected to include the new Final Fantasy for PS4. It’ll also feature dev interviews, game demos, and presentations on upcoming content. And, apparently, lots of chocobo music.
The shows will run across all three main days of the conference, which are June 11-13.
I think it’s wrong that people who enjoy Final Fantasy have to feel bad for liking games such as X-2, XIII, and XIII-2. It’s not right if people’s first reaction is a comment like “This is blasphemy but I think XIII is a good game”
You shouldn’t have to get defensive about personally enjoying something. I’ve been attacked just because I am firm in my belief that it was a great game, and that’s just not appropriate.
I’m pretty much done with this “fandom” business. I want to be with other FF fans, not judgmental prudes.
Final Fantasy Fandom!!! the musical featuring smash hits like
- “WHERE’S MY VII REMAKE”
- “Toriyama is the Devil!!!”
- “This Soundtrack Sucks Where’s Uematsu (Latin Choral Version)”
- “MMOs Don’t Belong in Final Fantasy”
- “Lightning Can Return AFTER They Finish Versus”
- “The Series Died After X”
- “TOO LINEAR (Interlude)”
- “Nostalgic self-entitlement!”
- “Square > Square Enix (Extended Dance Dub Mix)”
- “Fuck Kitase and Nomura Bring Back Sakaguchi and Amano”
- “LOOK AT ALL THESE REMAKES AND HD REMASTERS THAT AREN’T VII (Reprise)”
Ok here’s how Square-Enix works.
You have team A. They’re in charge of Final Fantasy XIII, XIII-2, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.
You have team B. They’re in charge of Final Fantasy Type-0.
And lastly you have team C. They’re in charge of Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
Ok so I’m only going to say this once so read verrryyy carefully.
These teams are completely separate developmental sectors within Square-Enix. That means (listen carefully, children this is important) they have no relationship toward each other and the work and progress they make has no connection to any of the other teams!! Gosh well what does that mean?????
It means that the people who made XIII and Type-0 have had nothing to do with Versus XIII. They probably don’t even know what it’s about.
Ok so if Square-Enix had never made XIII, XIII-2, and Type-0 guess what? Versus still wouldn’t be out.
So shut up about it.
