Thread: Final Fantasy XI Offline remake?

  1. #1

    Default Final Fantasy XI Offline remake?

    What if they remade FFXI as a non-online RPG?
    Is that your final answer?

    >>> That would not even make sense..

    But with a very very very and I mean REAL VERY good story, they can pull it off I guess..

    It wouldn't be the same. A lot of stuff requires you to have multiple people playing together. I don't know how a single player game would be able to handle that. Obviously you would need to be able to control multiple characters at once which would get complicated.

    Doesn't sound like a problem at all. Obviously you'd just tweak some parts so that they could easily be done with a single person controlling several characters one after another. For combat, most of it can be solved with a gambit-like system as in FF12.

    Yes, FF11 offline would keep it's story, I dunno why you brought that up.

    Fixed characters and backstories, modified gameplay... sounds good. Hope SE takes it into consideration!

    I'd rather they didn't.

    Edit: It's a shame that so many people assume that because FFXI is online it must have a bad story. FFXI's story is easily one of the best in the series.

    Too bad the pacing isn't the best :/

    Perhaps the story should be faster-paced?

    The plot's pacing is fine. The rest of the game is just kind of slow.

    Perhaps faster-paced gameplay then?

    it takes a lot of leveling up between each story related fight you do, making people (me for example) almost forget what happened earlier by the time they can get the next cutscene

    isn't this poor pacing?

    Depends how you're approaching the missions. If you already have a job of a sufficient level ~65 to complete Rise of the Zilart, 75 for Chains of Promathia, Treasures of Aht Urhgan, and Wings of the Goddess, burning through the missions is solely dependent on whether or not you can get people together. Nation missions might be another deal since you typically do those as you're leveling. You could also do CoP as you go, but I really don't see very many people attempting that.

    If one prepares oneself properly, one can burn through these missions in a few days if one really wants to hardcore it. I know people who have completed nation missions in only a few days. There's nothing inherent in any of the missions that makes you wait longer than one day (occasional JP midnight waits) to continue.

    It'd be so different that they might as well just slap a different roman number behind it.
