    An awesome excuse to replay those games again. I can’t wait.

  • NoctLightCloud

    Nintendo should buy Final Fantasy, lord knows Square Enix is becoming incompetent at juggling the series….

  • Randy Marsh

    Why would they do that when they own the superior Xenoblade franchise? 😛 Okay I’m being mean and don’t mean that entirely, Xenoblade 2 was just a better Final Fantasy game than Final Fantasy XV though.

  • NoctLightCloud

    What makes a FF a FF though? Definitely not the over-the-top anime/moe look and characters of XB2.

  • Randy Marsh

    The exploration, the story, the characters themselves, the combat, and the music were the real highlights to how superior of a modern open world JRPG should be when it came to Xenoblade 2. The anime tiddies and lolis in XB2 were just a plus to me, not the highlight of why the game was better.

    Also Final Fantasy has had its fair share of over-the-top anime stuff, World of Final Fantasy, Dimensions II, and Lightning Returns. Just to name a few.

  • NoctLightCloud

    WoFF I can live with, as well as anime stuff, but moe would kill FF, I hope they never go that way. And WoFF is not moe, it’s just chibi. Never heard of Dimension II tbh, too many spin-offs. Imo the music is still excellent in modern FF.

  • Randy Marsh

    The music in FFXV was hit or miss. Yoko’s tracks are the best in the game, however the tracks she did not work on were some of the worst in the series, Lestallum, the Crow’s Nest, the hunt battle theme, Galdin Quay, and Hammerhead are some themes come to mind.

    The DLC for FFXV however are good in the OST department, but that’s because they’re done by former Square alumni composers; coincidentally some are done by the composer for the Xeno series lol.

    However, a lot of the spin-offs still have the good music, but since we were focusing on FFXV I will not be counting them in the currently discussion lol.

  • NoctLightCloud

    you are right, I agree with you. I only focus on Yoko’s tracks when thinking about XV. (her newly created orchestra title song in the opening movie flashback for KH3 even made me cry, I did not expect that.)
    I have to admit that I nowadays come back to listen to XIII-2 OSTs a lot, even though I disliked it back then. Not sure who worked on those, but they were definitely ahead of their time. Some NieR Automata’s OSTs reminded me a lot of XIII-2.
