well, i just saw a gamespot comp video of dissidia final fantasy and i've gotta say, it looks really badass. i haven't been this excited in a long time. but i think they should've made seifer the final fantasy vii villain rather than ultimecia. just sayin...
Yeah, they said this game was all about protagonists and antagonists. That's the reason they chose Jecht over Seymour for FFX. I guess that kind of makes sense (well not really since Jecht wasn't even a bad guy), but Seifer was certainly more antagonizing to Squall than Ultimecia. They have CONTRADICTED themselves.
yea. well, as far as jecht over seymour goes, jecht kinda was the antagonist in the beginning. always putting tidus down and treating him like crap. of course, jecht's character changed during the game and seymour was the one that opposed the group for most of the time, jecht just seems like the better pick. seymour kinda reminds me of ultimecia as far as fighting is concerned, and ultimecia in a fighting game like this just doesn't mesh well with me. i mean, she's a sorceress for crying out loud! she's not very close-range, as opposed to all the other characters who can throw down when needed. using ultimecia instead of seifer is like using necron instead of kuja. it just doesn't work.
As for Ultimecia being long range and not fitting the game, the cool part about Dissidia is that it's all pretty balanced character wise . Well, at least in the sense that you can have fun playing as whoever the hell you want (unless it's Kefka, he blows). Sure Ultimecia is made for long range, but I like how the game can conform around your playstyle. The game wouldn't be as fun if you were stuck playing as characters who just kicked the shit out of each other. Everybody would wind up playing as Cloud and Jecht.
This is evidenced in this video where I just float around in Clouds face.
i think the point that was brought up about the variety of the characters was a good one. sadly, i didn't get to see the video. ib9e been posting from my cell. but i also think they could've put ramza from fft in. and possibly vormav or gaffgarion. =)
crisis core is one of the better games on psp. its the game tat suck me into psp in the 1st place. gameplay is pretty okay with beautiful cut scenes. the main drawback is the entirely random "slot machine" system of activating ur powers. some pple hv some formulas to calculate the possibility of the events happening but i never bother with them =P
