OH and current rumour is that the reason Final Fantasy VIII isn't being released on current systems is because of a licencing issue with the Song "Eyes on Me" as it is not only owned by Square Enix but also owned by Faye Wong and Toshiba-EMI and this is a song that can not be replaced as it's a core aspect of the narrative of the game

and this isn't to hard to believe after all Sonic 3 and Knuckles wasn't on the Mega Drive collection because of the same reasons

also i have to wonder if this kind of thing will impact FFXV in the future with the game having "Stand by Me" by Florence and the Machine in the game?

perhaps it would be better for games to NOT have licensed music in them

Oh interesting!

@FullbringIchigo "perhaps it would be better for games to NOT have licensed music in them"

I think of game studios and the people working there as artists, who create a piece of art and not nessecarily a product, that has to adhere to all kinds of practical standards.

I think if the creatives there feel it adds to the game, the story they want to tell to include licensed music in there, than I think they should do that and not feel restrained by the thought of a possible remaster 20 years later.

I just finished Life is Strange Before The Storm, which contains a load of licensed music, and man, does it elevate the game much at times. I think running the risk of there be no remaster for the game in twenty years from now is well worth the experience now.

But that's just my take of course.

well this is now a little awkward isn't it

@Kidfried OH licensed music certainly can add to a game there is no doubt about that but it can cause issues later on and it's not so much the music itself but on who sings it. Square wouldn't be having this issue if they never got Faye Wong to sing the song, if they did it all in house with their own singer then there would be no issue

so perhaps i was wrong saying licensed music but should have instead said a licensed or professional singer/musician because they get some control over the songs they make

so apparently FFXV and a few other games (Terra Wars, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and DJ Nobunaga) are getting a collab event that will see new in game FFXV themed events and content coming to those games and FFXV getting content based on those games

Apparently Sarah of Terra Wars will be appearing to join your party in FFXV

and for example Shadow of the Tomb Raider offers new Lara Croft-style gear for your Comrades avatar

Pretty cool. Collaborations or crossovers - you don't see this a lot in Western games.

I hope we get the Terra Wars collab. She looks amazing. A bit like Agnes Oblige from Bravely Default.

So i wanted to get discussions restarted on here so i thought about a simple poll

Do you want a Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy Remaster on PS4/XB1/Switch

now i know FFXIII is a divisive game to say the least but i think it could do well on the current systems

@FullbringIchigo If they bundled all 3 games together then I think it would interest some, including me. I like XIII and played about halfway through XIII-2 and never got around to Lightning Returns.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

FullbringIchigo

@Th3solution Lightning Returns was a pretty good game i thought although the timed aspect could become a little annoying at times

oh i also added "Trilogy" to the question because your right any release should include all 3 games

@FullbringIchigo That would be pretty good. On the whole I really enjoyed the trilogy and there's lots to like about the games. Lightning is one of my favourite Final Fantasy characters. XIII-2 is underrated, and I guess a lot of people missed out on it after the backlash against XIII. The monster collecting was a fun system. I still can't wrap my head fully around the stuff about Yeul though.

I think Lightning Returns would benefit from a remaster as it was a little rough round the edges. I played all three on the Xbox 360, and the port for XIII was crap, so it would be nice to play it all shiny and new without the low resolution and grainy compressed cut scenes.

The music is rather excellent, especially in XIII-2.

@FullbringIchigo I wouldn't have any interest. It just doesn't sound that great, they come across as decent games lacking in the story department. I can't spend the amount of time that trilogy wants on something just decent. If a game is long, it needs to justify itself.

@mookysam from what i remember Yeul was a seeress who can see all possible futures but each time she has a vision it damages her until they eventually kill her but after each death she reincarnates in a new body to go through it again and again for all eternity

@FullbringIchigo I actually like XIII's combat system a lot and ejoy the esthetics of the game. A revamped version of the first game with more stuff to do besides progressing and killing would be lovely.

XIII-2 was an ok game but I was so bummed by the story, Serah and Noel...Lightning Returns was brilliant and so ahead of its time but the story portion was already terribly compromised by XIII-2.

So just the first game for me 😉

@Feena well even if it was released as a trilogy you wouldn't need to play the other 2 and besides they were never meant to exist anyway, we all know the only reason they do is because Square sold 3 FFXIII games to Sony and Microsoft and when Agito XIII and Vs XIII because Type-0 and XV respectively they had to create XIII-2 and LR to fill their contract

it's why FFXIII had a resolute final ending that they had to change via time travel for XIII-2

Feena

@FullbringIchigo Yes, I'd buy it for sure. It looks incredibly good even by today standards on ps3 though, so I guess it needs some extras ...

@FullbringIchigo I still find it strange that the Lightning trilogy has not been released on PS4 yet. I love those games and will buy again.

belmont

FullbringIchigo

@belmont i know right, they aint even on the XB1 backwards compatibility program either

@Feena well if it included all 3 games and all the DLC that would be enough wouldn't it?

Jaz007

@FullbringIchigo Can you explain further (and link something maybe) about Square owing Sony and MS games? I’ve never heard of anything like where they aren’t exclusive and owe it to both of them.
