Mobile games are 99% thrash, just don't even bother man.

If you wanna play Final Fantasy (or any other actual good game) on your phone just use an emulator.

It was bound to happen to the series somehow. An outdated format, a different world and audience, and the old fans abandoning the series somewhere between X and XIII...

Whoever owns the rights to something with a name that big is sure to find a way to make it work and make them rich in the modern world.

There are still plenty of beautiful games to play dont let it discourage you

squenix is one of the more hideous bitch goddesses in the japanese game business, but despite that and being stuck in one of the worse circles of developement hell the actual ffxv managed to come out and have a weird personal charm all of its own with a shitload of human touch and care put into the parts of the game that were actually finished

so idk man, the franchise could (and has) definitely be in worse places, if this mobile trash is what it takes to make the FFXV edition of the license profitable and help convince the suits to make more games like it then that's a win for everyone

8 is alright, I just did a full clear about 5 months ago. The Junction system is pretty dope if you know how to exploit it, also its kinda broken and the story is a bit zappy, but the OST is bomb as shit and the boss fights are dope as fuck.

OP the one you posted barely even qualifies as a "game". It's just menus and waiting. It's like those old Facebook games that just had wait limits set to fucking everything. Also, Square has nothing to do with the mobile shit with the name attached, they just whore out the FF brand to some Chinese fucks to fart out a mobile app filled with gacha.

Then you're retarded, I beat that game when I was a dumbass 10 year old, all I had to do was pay attention to the story and junction shit correctly. I also literally spent around 40 hours just walking around playing cards. Thats probably why I never got lost either.

Because the brand has been around for over 30 years? The people that had the passion for it have probably left Square and it's just a money source for them now.

Square had to partner with Enix to remove competition from Dragon Quest because it was pretty much killing the FF series in Japan and the movie the Sprite Within was pretty much hemorrhaging Squaresoft back to the stone age. Needles to say, Sony came and saved the day and partnership happen to Enix.

Any FF can get confusing if you don't play it every week. I've known many people who took a month or two break from a FF and came back to be like, 'What...the...fuck am I supposed to do...". I've even been on that end with FF1 and the original Dragon Warrior.

Don't act like it's impossible or someone is stupid for getting lost in those games. It's a common problem.

There hasn't been a PC gaming esports scene in Japan at all. Because they just legalized it this year.

Watch them slowly overtake Koreans with their rhythm game skills.

>>723712
PC sales are still going up. They're not actually losing market share, they're being overtaken in market share. But they don't really serve the same purpose as the media consumption-focused XBoxes, iPads or whatever and they never have. That's why they found so much success. It's a slightly different market.
iPads and laptops are the norm for kiddos. But more jobs and hobbies than ever benefit from beefy GPU computation. So even though the average person uses these tiny devices, there's a strong incentive to step up to the big sit-down box.

There's also the lifestyle aspect of computing the old way in an office (or a desk in the dining room as most people actually used retro computers lol) You sit down in the space where you do your thing and it helps you focus on that thing. Gaming, coding, 3D modelling, CAD, whatever.

It serves a completely different purpose in every regard to an iPad or an ultralight notebook, even though they do the 99% of the same things in a pinch.

It seriously doesn't take long in 3D art to go from perfectly happy on a macbook air to chewing through your 16 GB of RAM and needing an upgrade. Video editors, programmers, photoshoppers, musicians and CAD people might be perfectly content on their macbooks depending what they're actually doing, but 3D, Game Design and Machine Learning are all heavy, heavy loads if you want them to be.

PCs are for people who realistically just fucking play video games but aspire to do something more productive.

And commonly, that something more productive is recording their gameplay for twitch or youtube, and be honest. Would you be able to take yourself seriously as a streamer just using built-in console streaming? No you would not. You'd need a PC even if you were a console streamer.

Ffbe is the only one I stuck with.

Its solid enough with multiple ways to play and so far it isn't pay to win ,as well as being hella f2p friendly.

Only gripes are that I didn't pull cloud or sephiroth sp my olive can have that obscene 1500atk. And sabin and shadow are pretty much crap as units

Pic is my current item world event team.

I sunk a lot of time into FFBE, but, well, power creep, on top of getting 21 off banner rainbows in a row over several months (i.e. I never got what I was aiming for on a banner)
I did have a lot of good units but if your pic is current then they haven't added 7 star yet so I will stay away for now... Did they add Zargabaath's enhancements yet? He's my favorite unit just for versatility even though versatility doesn't win trials.

Probably within the next month or September the first batch of 7 star should be on global.
I'm still a day one f2p player so I just decided to go with long haul play styles and not worry about chasing the meta or pulling units i want (fuck you tilith and cloud).
So far I can 7 star kid Rydia, orlandou, raegan +stmr, noctis +stmr, rikku if she gets one, ace, Queen, trance Terra, yuna, ayaka, lulu, veritas of light, knight delita +stmr.



It's really just the whales, dolphins, and newer p2w gatcha players that make a big stink over shit like not pulling their 10th basch , or having the top meta team fully equipped with rare tmr gear and abilites blasting through trials in two rounds then complaining about being bored on circlejerk and facebook .

Right now it's global item world event and 2nd anniversary so there's free shit all over the place.


Tried final fantasy record keeper again last week and deleted it an hour later, mobius final fantasy didn't keep my interest, the ff 15 mobile game isn't my cup of tea. And all the ports of console fantasy I'd rather just emulate on my phone or pc
