So brown terrorists packing AKs attack the slums of the uncanny valley to steal those crystal worshiping hippies' magic Coke bottles?
Millions of dollars spent answering the question "How can we make Guns of the Patriots MORE retarded?"
This is one of those things that by the time you get to the end, you have no memory of any of it, except for the fact that no one got their jaw blown off to be picked up off the floor, which is why I watched.
OH POORLY-WRITTEN AND OBSCURELY DEFINED CONCEPTS OF GOOD AND/OR EVIL! LISTEN TO MY MEANINGLESS DRIVEL WHICH SERVES NO OTHER PURPOSE THAN AS A PRETEXT FOR SPECIAL EFFECTS AND A FIGHT SEQUENCE!
Announcer: And the Macguffin is handed off to whats-er-tits who starts a run for the end zone. She's moving pretty good in those robes and her bullet-dodging talent seems to be at full strength. But what's this? It looks like we've got a porcupine dog on the field! Is that legal? Does it have anything to do with anything? Probably not. Hell, I just noticed we've switched from English to "female in distress Japanese utterances."
Commercial: Friends, if you're under attack by a pin cushion on legs, don't forget to drink your bottle of Diet WTF. Diet WTF causes you extreme pain and slight bodily distortion that has little to no effect on anything whatsoever. Be sure to take it only during a random solar eclipse.
Craigslist ad: RuPaul's dragon is missing. Last seen wearing most of his dresses. If found, please call [phone number withheld by request].
FF Fan: Wow, that was soooo deep and meaningful. It's far more spiritual and complex than anything America could produce. It needed some panties, though.
Watching this was like watching a sculptor learn his craft for decades, only to find out his goal is to make more realistic Precious Moments figurines.
Also, I'm used to the Japanese using English words just because they sound good, but "philosophy?" I think they failed to adequately get across anyone's views on anything other than "we have monsters and guns."
hmm, seems you guys are much more into the content than I anticipated; as a cg geek I was merely referring to the actual graphics which are pretty amazing in many of the shots (and granted not so amazing in others). The content I agree is laughable and forgettable.
I like the graphics, not sure what kind of aspie SPK is to try to get so much meaning and depth out of a final fantasy trailer/demo/anything.
So, Square Enix, you've had time to make FFXIII-2, all it's DLC, and this, but you've not even released a shred of news, much less a release date, on Versus XIII.
Fuck you guys.
I can't deny this looks fan-fucking-tastic though, and I'd love to play a game that actually looks like this.
I can't stress the PLAY part enough though.
The graphics are very impressive. With that out of the way, before I play another Final Fantasy game, I really want to test this out. I've been burned by tunnel dungeons and characters I just didn't care about in most of their recent releases.

What a horrible waste of time, money, artistry, and talent. I can't fault the tech fellas working on it though, because this is pretty (hence my rating). There isn't anything compelling about it though. It's soulless.
Welcome to the world of an Industrial Lights & Magic technician.
The industry has misrepresented "Real Time" so many times at so many other E3's, that claiming "real time" in your demo just reeks of bullshit.
I wish devs/pubs would either not mention it is real time at all, show the boring cinematic and shock everyone when the game releases with said visuals...or put the controller in the hands of the poorly paid game press schmuck and show them it is truly real time.
...and I hate to say it, but this bored me to tears. Like most of E3 2012.
Yeah, just because you're using the same engine to do cutscenes and gameplay doesn't mean the actual game will look or play anything remotely like this. It's going to be the same stilted animations and invisible walls as usual.
