    Noo... that movie would do so much better as anime! I'm really used to the main characters having their hair stand up like rabid DBZ fans, not long like they're wearing mops on their heads. >_<

    yeah, that sounds like a good theory-what I was thinking. The fire things gotta be a flashback, but the guy in white suonds like a safe bet for sephy...
    It was only a teaser so doesnt reveal much but it has got me wanting more. 'teased' if you will....

    of course, I thought Spirits within looked good from this stage, so it could still let us down

    my theory is that the movie is set after the events in the game and there is still chaos in the world. So cloud still searching for the answers to who he is sets out alone. When he is jumped by the sepihroth followers. This begins the big first battle. and when cloud disposes of the last one from the shadows sepiroth arises. But he does not fight cloud he only taunts him. then vanishes and clouds search continues and soo on...

    I like Cloud's new outfit!! And this Sephy-looking guy is pretty cool too. In all, this looks like it's going to be way better than FF: TSW, because it doesn't have to try to appeal to the mass market as did TSW.

    now that you mention it they both have the same Sadistic look...

    and maybe the Wheelchair guy is a girl... then again it could even be Zack or Hojo... (If Sephiroth can come back anyone can)

    Because it's not an RPG? It's not even a game?

    Now it should be known that I'm not a naysayer of this whole thing, and I am anticipating the film if not as anxiously as some. Though I think the character's faces look dreadful. Nice animation and cg work, though the design is just bad.

    The shot of Cloud looking towards the camera looks eerily like a shot of Tidus after a year on the Atkins diet, a modelling contract from Hennes, and a contract to test a new extra-strong hairspray.

    Still, it's interesting. I'll not pass judgement until I've seen more.

    [/QUOTE]<span id='postcolor'>

    Because its symbolic, after all it was Zacks sword , and it was on the load screen of the game.

    If I use your atkinsdiet/ modelling contract/ hairspray formula almost any two people in the world with the same skin color look alike. If I use the formula in question I can link Mike Myers to Brad Pitt.

    I guessing you commenting on his skinniness. Well in the game he wasn't really all that buff. Looks to me like they gave him the Bruce Lee buffness tounge.gif

    I said that exact same thing to my friend when I first saw the trailer and the image of Sephiroth. He had that same psychotic smile smile.gif

    Is it just me, or is Cloud just owning that silver-haired guy? I mean everytime he jumps into clash swords with Cloud, he just pushes him right back almost every time. I'm sure the fight is not meant like that, but I dunno. It seemed funny. smile.gif

    I can't wait to see this. . .

    The Buster Sword you see in the screenshot is not the same Buster Sword from FFVII. In the trailer you see Cloud getting rid of the old Buster Sword, probably symbolizing that he's putting part of his past behind him. Note that he's also gotten rid of all of his (well, not really his) SOLDIER gear.

    His new one looks all shiny and good. The old one's all rusty.

    Also, Seph doesn't really look like Kefka. Seph looks like a crazy, evil bishounen now. Kefka looked like a crazy, evil clown freak.

    Cloud also used the Buster sword the entire game, regardless of what sword you actually had equipped. So it makes sense that he has it for at least part of the movie.

    Am I the only one who thinks that the Sephiroth in the picture with the flames looks hideously ugly?

    He gets ten extra points for feeling macho enough to wear dark red lipstick with his pale pink skin.
  • KashiKashi New Member Full Members
    edited October 2003
    Actually, I've played it where I used the Buster Sword throughout the game anyway. He looks so much cooler using it when he does Omnislash than he does with any other weapon.

    Of course, so few weapons are cooler than giant, unwieldy slabs of metal.

    I think that has to do with the color of the flames, and the shadows it causes on his face.

    But it's clearly of great interest to the RPG community -just look at the turn out on all message boards on the subject. I only go to RPGamer for news, I wouldn't have found out about this if they hadn't covered it. It's certainly important to Square-Enix (a major RPG developer) in light of the failure of The Spirits Within and it could certainly affect future games and possibly sequels in the future. As well as that it affects a GAME that has already been released by having a major impact on the way we percieve it's world. I don't think it's unreasonable at all for RPGamer to be covering this.
    By the same logic perhaps we should get rid of the fan art section-because pictures aren't games, the themes section- because backgrounds aren't games, the sound test section- because sound isn't games. Not to mention any industry news that isn't directly relevent to an upcoming game.
