    Lady Luck Dressphere will blow my mind, again.

    Precious two games. <3

    Edit:
    All the pictures are for FFX-2.

  • Duc PC-QB

    Where are Vita ss and footages ?

    • ayb_91

      Still not seen yet. Hope they show them asap.

  • $83030187

    The fuck is up with Wakka’s thumb?

    Also, I’d very much like to see some Vita footage at some point.

    • Samsara09

      geez.

    • ayb_91

      Lulu might did something with his thumb. You know what I mean. :p

      • Surgeon of Death

        Put the squeeze on it? :)

        • ayb_91

          Huh? I didn’t get what you mean, but you can talk in Arabic with me if that can help you to explain easily to me. I would appreciate that Rasheed.

          • Surgeon of Death

            I’m a baptist Christian bro. Don’t know any Arabic.

            • ayb_91

              Oh. There are many Arabic guys called Rasheed. Anyway, I still didn’t get your main point though.

              • Surgeon of Death

                Names don’t necessarily dictate your religion and vagina vicegrip.

                • ayb_91

                  And you are mad because?? Again, I didn’t get your main point.

                  • Surgeon of Death

                    ????Mad? Lol I was just making a statement and if you don’t get it that’s also fine :)

                    • ayb_91

                      I tried to know what you meant three times, but you seemed to be so interested. Good luck.

  • Nightcore34

    Really good, I’ve been wanting to play the other final fantasy’s cause the first one I played was 12 then crisis core and the 13 series so can’t wait for this, also waiting for the vita version to release cause my vita needs more games.

  • Alex TSi

    Look good …

  • Charlottes Guardian

    Rikkuuuuuuuu <3

  • rockman29
    • Articuno76

      I’m not sure what I’m looking for here. From what I can tell I’m looking at the same model in both pics (the lighting is different though). The details on the scarf for instance seem identical :S

      • rockman29

        They aren’t the same, look at the faces.

        I noticed it in the trailer as well.

        In the PS2 version, there was a low poly model used for main characters in the background.

        Why they are doing it on PS3 in such a heavy remaster makes no sense.

        The low poly characters will have flatter faces, with pointier features.

        It will be more noticeable at 1080p. For a remaster that is taking so long to develop, it’s shoddy work.

        Blow up the pictures to full 1080p and you will see the difference.

        • kenshee

          While I would love to see them improve faces, I think they don’t use the detailed faces they do have because those are used when they actually animate the faces movement/expressions. Same deal with kingdom hearts.

          I think they could find a way around this, maybe have idle animations so they can use the more expressive models.

          But I also doubt it’s as easy as just replacing them, they’d have to make whole new animations or they’d look like dead dolls much worse than they would with the less detailed versions.

          • rockman29

            The low poly models barely animate in the first place.

            That picture of Rikku is the same as what gameplay of Tidus is essentially.

            If Tidus is in the background, or during gameplay, and talks, there is no facial animation in the original game. But his head will move or nod or something.

            So they wouldn’t be replacing any facial animations, because there wouldn’t be any in the first place.

            One of the scenes you can spot this problem many times in the original game is after Rikku does her “strip scene” and meets Yuna for the first time. They have many of the low poly models of each character surrounding one or two high poly characters in the center (the high poly one switches a couple of times to a different character when a new one talks, but not every time, otherwise there would be too many cuts).

            But yea it would look weird. That said, they are remastering it, you’d expect some solution to be arrived at, like general animations for expressions for the high poly models to take place of the no-animation sequences of the original.

            • kenshee

              Oh yeah, I must have worded my message weirdly, because what you’re saying is exactly my point, lol.

              You just can’t expect them to animate faces constantly, because I think the tools they did that with at that time must have been very tiresome to use, if you see how many scenes in X and kingdom hearts with close-ups didn’t have animated faces… (which is a true shame)

              But yes, ofc I would want them to do all of that and remaster/remake these games to their ideal form, I just don’t expect them to :)

        • Articuno76

          Honestly…I don’t see it. One is in the middle of emoting, the other one has a blank expression.

          They don’t look like different models from what I can tell.

          • rockman29

            Well, they are. I’m sorry you can’t see it. Maybe you should frame by frame the trailer and try to find it, if you can’t see it in the trailer I can’t help you.

          • rockman29

            I’m telling you they are different models, because they are. There.

            Again, when it’s in full HD you will notice it. Or watch the trailer frame by frame in HD.

  • ayb_91

    Whoa !! Just noticed how Lulu’s boobs are. They weren’t like this before. Way to go SE. xD

    I do hope they made an option to skip the cutscene when you change from a dressphere to another one. It was the worst thing in this game.

  • captainhowdy

    I wish they gave this the same treatment the Fable remake got :-. X deserves that so much.

    • ayb_91

      X is not comparable to X-2 by any means you know.

      • bloodiOS

        What does that even mean? What does FFX-2 have to do with captainhowdy comparing the efforts put into remastering FFX to those of remaking Fable?

        • captainhowdy

          Exactly. I never said anything about X-2 ha-ha.

    • bloodiOS

      Yeah, but that’s the point isn’t it, this isn’t full-blown remake like Fable, just a remaster with a much smaller budget ;)

      • captainhowdy

        Agreed. I guess I should have said, “I wish this was a remake, instead of a remaster”. X would be so epic with today’s graphics.

        • mesul6anme

          Well some could argue that FFX/X-2 are bigger games. Plus they spent what 1.5-2 years “remastering” it, how is that a low budget…. Hhhh. Anyway looking forward to replaying Fable.

          • bloodiOS

            “Low budget”? Having a much smaller budget does not necessarily mean that it’s a low budget project…

          • captainhowdy

            I believe you replied to the wrong person.Though I would say, X should be a remake. It deserves a remake.

  • bloodiOS

    Off topic, but what happened to the comment section in Open Forum #074? I can’t view it! It keeps on loading endlessly… Its behavior is so similar to this thread right now…

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      COMMENT OVERLOAD

      • bloodiOS

        Kinda funny though, seeing that the 72th Open Forum had more comments than this one (flowing in at a much quicker rate too, if I’m not mistaken.)

      • Arcana Gear

        i dont think so. I know someplace with more than 300k comments….

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Well yeah. I was just being funny :p

    • Kobracon

      Oh its happening to you too. I thought it was just me….

      • DarkLegacy

        It’s happening to me too. I hope Disqus fixes the problem so that we can go back on the Open Forum

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Probably Disqus being Disqus. =/

      • bloodiOS

        Disqus can be such a killjoy =(

    • Arcana Gear

      interesting, i thought was just me.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Ugh. This pisses me off. I really wish they would fix this.

  • Ace

    Still waiting for a news article on the HD version of the Tidus laughing scene.

  • mesul6anme

    looks good, though it doesn’t justify them taking a long time with it.

  • http://www.android.com/ HyperTallih

    Just one word for this: Cool!

  • DarkLegacy

    I have to say that these screenshots are looking good

  • EspadaKiller

    Can’t wait for FFX and X-2 HD remaster… FFX, my fav FF game ;)
