    ZOMG! Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Footage

    Square Enix released new footage of Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age at the Taipei Game Show. We finally get to see the game in full 1080, new character models, new menus, hear the updated music, and the turbo mode.

    Unfortunately, there is no word on a release date yet. The game will be available sometime in 2017 on the PS4.

    it's hard to make out the quality in those videos. the bitrate is pretty low
    everything is wrapped in gray
    i'm focusing on your image
    can you hear me in the void?

    I find it funny that Mateus' super attack didn't even one-shot a standard creep ^^

    The main thing I want to know is whether or not they've removed spell restrictions. So you can cast three high-tier spells without it clogging up the system?

    Videos so far seem to imply that is the case, yes.

    So Baknamy are no longer going to be OP as heck by just casting Sandstorm and keeping you from doing anything during the ten minutes it takes for all the animations to play out?

    Seriously, you couldn't even use a frickin' Potion. Auto-attacks? Oh, those went through fine, and they'd happily beat you up the whole time, but you had no ability to heal through so much of the Necrohol just due to the sheer spam fest of particle-effect heavy abilities clogging the system.
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    Oh thank God, yes. I might actually use magic more often. The 'clogging' that takes place on the PS2 meant that by and large, high-scale magic was just inferior to builds that relied on spamming attacks and chaining combos. Of course, the job system will kinda force you to use a mage build at some point, but the hardware upgrade will be a great help. Now you can quickly cast that curaga without fearing it was sent to the back of the queue.

    Pretty sure there's enough fighter jobs that you'll never be "forced" to use magic.

    Having a team of six fighters is... a challenge, to say the least.

    But you get what I mean though. Fine, drop the "forced", but there's still a very good likelihood that magic is going to be involved. The hardware update means magic will be more useful.

    How about three, then? :P

    Also the Black Mage was probably the most powerful damage dealer in IZJS, so *shrug* =P
