    Huh, a sequel to FFXII? Wasn't FFXII with airships and stuff, and that Vaan guy?

    I think it's more a sequel to FFXI, that was a MMORPG, and this looks like one too.

    I saw FFXII and I thought oh god no.
    I hope it doesn't turn out to be a fail.

    The tech demo doesn't look bad but its a tech demo so it could be nothing like the actual game.

    Didn't XII already have a sequel, Revenant Wings?

    Yup... RW was the official canon sequel...

    I am thinking this is an Expanded Universe type thing, another game within the original's universe. Like Unleashed and Rogue Squadren to Star Wars.

    Another add-on to the world of Ivalice.
    While its good Square Enix has one world they stick to, it gets boring after a while.

    How the hell does XII get a sequel but the better ones do not. Maybe this will do everything right that XII did wrong, which means pretty much everything.

    I actually liked Revanent Wings. And then I saw this article and I hated it with every single bit of will in my body. [​IMG]

    Hey, this sorta looks like SE's attempt at somethin' like Demon's Souls.

    If so, then
    WOW COOL.

    Without wanting to detract into a total flampocalypse... What didn't you like about XII so much?

    I mostly hated how they did the combat it just did not feel right, the story was quite bad never even could keep me playing for more than 30 minutes. I guess the combat is what made it horrible for me, I mean I love old school turnbased, but do still appreciate newer battle systems, I guess I was hoping for more of a Vagrant Story battle system since it was worked on by the same person or team can not remember them at the moment.

    Hopefully this is a more refined version of FFXII than a minigame-esque spinoff. FFXII was an MMO for single-players, which is actually rather fun. It just became far too repetitive to warrant continuation unless you were a diehard fan.

    I played virtually all of the available sidequests and then story missions... and couldn't bother finishing the game. It was like there wasn't any valid reason--it was all the same as the last thing. The game needed perfection and refinement.
