  3. If Versus XIII is next gen...CGI cutscenes scrapped?
2 years ago#1
I'm guessing that would mean they would be using the Agnis Philosophy engine? Then wouldn't that mean they would be using the same engine for the cutscenes? If that's the case then I'm really gonna miss the CGI cutscenes, because I LOVE SE CGI cutscenes, especially the few we've seen from Versus XIII. Would be a shame to have it all scrapped. :(

Let's hope that doesn't happen :( getting CGI cutscenes in FF games always feels like a reward for getting further in the game.

Who would win, Jedi Charizard or Jedi Jigglypuff?

There is no way they will get scrapped.

Agni's Philosophy took a year and over $100,000 to make, and it was a tech demo-- and we all know that in-game visuals pretty much never come close to the visuals of the tech demo. At least since this gen.

Just a comparison between the best shot of Agni and one of the best shots of Versus XIII's CGI:

VS.

Still much more impressive.

And obviously there's no way a full game will look as good as Agni's Philosophy, at least on a technical level when you're running around the fields.

I'm sure pre-rendered CGI cutscenes will remain in games for quite a while. It's not like CGI technology never improves, anyways.

Well aren't the first few trailers of Versus XIII already scrapped considering that Noctis is wearing his old clothes.

Yes, but Noctis is wearing his ROEN-designed clothes in the 2011 trailer, so the second picture of the old man in the white robe is still valid.

If? More like not going to happen so forget about it.

So what? All of the CGI in the January 2011 trailer is still in-tact because they didn't change the clothing again or anything.

This game will have CGI cutscenes.
So will XV.
And so will XVI.
etc. etc. etc.

I don't see CGI cutscenes going away for at least another 10 years, and even then, I can still see pre-rendered CGI cutscenes being used because present-day in-game visuals will never match the quality of present-day pre-rendered CGI.

Yeah I was talking about the trailers before the 2011 as already being scrapped regardless if CGI trailers remain for Versus XIII or not.

No **** I was talking about the ones with the old clothes being scrapped.

People need to take chill pills on this board, geez.
