DAM YOU!

How are the summons? Are there alot of common old school ones? I want some examples XD

Oh yes full of spoilers, everywhere in these few posts because Ringo requested for it and I'm just providing her with the info. If the spoilers really bother you that much I might just highlight everything though I sort of feel the irrelevance of doing so, as everything is spoiler and there is not point selecting the parts out.

And summons, its better if you see for yourself:
FFXII RW Summons: License Ring

And final verdict, Ashe stayed on the deck with Basch. :: throws confetti:: Fran, Balthier and Nono went down to the cockpit to fly the Strahl. Kytes, Filo and Tomaj stood together at one side. Vaan and Penelo at the front while Ashe stood in front of Basch at another side of the ship.


I'm glad you feel better about the ending. It does seem that the ending needs a few viewings in order to warm up to it. After like seeing it about 4 times, I still think it's a bit meh, but I've come to terms with it.

QUOTE
And the fangirl squeals with joy over the discovery, also I notice in the credits, they placed Ashe forlourn solo pic below Basch's pic. She was staring up... and to me, it looks as though she was staring at him. Haha... another crazy fangirl note, but I think SE deliberately place the pictures according to that sequence. Why else would they do such a thing? I mean, this is just like FFXII where we wonder why Ashe and Basch sequences basically comes after one another. wink.gif


It really does look like she's looking at him which is just great. biggrin.gif And thanks for that Ashe/Basch pic you posted. Dayuuum! Tell him what you really feel Ashe biggrin.gif. If only I know how to make good icons out of those.

After play-throughs and seeing the ending and credits a few times, I'm gonna conclude that Ashe and Basch have feelings for each other. But both are very duty bound and stubborn to ever admit that to one another. Also, their situation isn't helping. Basch's identity is still a secret. To a lot of people he's an Archadian judge. From Filo and Kyte's reaction to Larsa, I'm assuming that most Dalmascans feel the same distrust for Archadia. I don't think the relationship of their queen and an Archadian judge would be a popular one.

I agree with you aorin that this sequel doesn't really tie up the loose ends in XII. It's not just Ashe but I feel Basch as well. I still would like to see him get his identity back and be credited for what he has done and sacrificed for the sake of peace. I wonder if they did that on purpose so that if they decide on another sequel then they still have a lot of material to work on. I'm crossing my fingers that the new Ivalice Alliance title yet to be announced would be the "proper" sequel to XII.

Sorry -josh- but we did put up spoiler warnings.

QUOTE(aorin @ May 11 2007, 07:41 PM) *

My dear girl, you are just so optimistic about almost everything. Oh yes, that's probably the only good thing about her unconfirmed ending. FFXII is pretty much a feast for fanfic writers cause everything is so subtle and free for intepretation -- and thus, endless possibilities.

Well there isn't much we can do about the ending so why not take the optimistic way tongue.gif
From your last interpretation of the RW ending, I've settled that there is something between Basch and Ashe which SE tried hinting the fans smile.gif Hopefully SE made the ending pretty vague cuz they are going to introduce a proper FFXII sequel eventually....I had a look on wikipedia about Ivalice Alliance but it seemed that the other two games are not directly related to FFXII. There is the FFXII International Zodiac Job System which I think is just an enhanced version of FFXII for SE to make more $$$. ...........I do wonder if there will be more story for Basch and Ashe.

QUOTE(aorin @ May 11 2007, 07:41 PM) *

I've replayed the last three chapters about three times to watch the ending and credits. And I still haven't bother to get a complete 100%. But I've watched the secret ending from somewhere else though.

There is a secret ending? Is it just about Vaan and Penelo tongue.gif?

I've got some questions myself (spoilers below):

- Are Filo and Tomaj playable?
- Let me get this straight...Ba'Gamnan is a good guy?
- Does the Judge of Wings have a name?
- How about the other survivors of FFXII? Migelo, Al-Cid, Dalan, Jote, Mjrn, Ondore, Zargabaath? Do they make an appearance?

I was actually expecting SE to announce another Ivalice Alliance title in the SE party this weekend. I was hoping it will be a "proper" sequel to XII. I was disappointed that none of this happened.

There's still a lot of unresolved issues a lot of which has been discussed in previous posts. We also haven't been able to explore Rozzaria. RW I feel isn't the proper sequel that I had hoped to tie up any loose strings in XII. Who knows really what SE is up to but I believe it's all still possible for XII-2.

Filo is, Tomaj is not. You do get a lot of interaction from him though.

- Let me get this straight...Ba'Gamnan is a good guy?

Not really. He joins your team but he has a sort of thing in his mouth that Tomaj controls and sort of electrocutes him when he misbehaves. laugh.gif

- Does the Judge of Wings have a name?

Yes. This is a major plot twist. Do you really want to know?

- How about the other survivors of FFXII? Migelo, Al-Cid, Dalan, Jote, Mjrn, Ondore, Zargabaath? Do they make an appearance?

Nope. Although I think I saw Migelo in the credits but not in the game itself.

On gamefqs there was this guy that posted this interesting piece of a 1UP article.
From and interview with the director:

1UP: Is there any feedback that you're receiving from the Japanese gamers that you might take into consideration and tweak for the U.S. market? Because there are some AI issues with the pathfinding -- meaning, your army gets stuck on an environmental object -- and I'm wondering if that'll be fixed for the North American release.

Motomu Toriyama: Yes, the interface is planned to be tweaked a bit, and more importantly since the Japanese market was unfamiliar for RTSs, it was designed more for beginners, but since the North American market is more familiar with the RTS genre, it will be tweaked a bit for more experienced players.


I find it interesting. People who were turned off by the game's difficulty might now change their minds.

That may help. Though you need to register, it does have a translation of the text in the game.
