Square Enix to focus on more Strong IPs:

I always have to have a laugh at people calling the PS1 days "the golden age". Because I remember the PS1 days. You know what I heard every five minutes? A lot of the same things you're hearing now. Just replace "It's not the same without Sakaguchi!" with "It's not the same now that it's not Nintendo/2D!"

...speaking of the Gooch, I'd like to remind some folks complaining about Wada that the entire reason the company is in this state is because Sakaguchi tanked it, hard, in the process of making The Spirits Within.

To Object or Not Object?
I've just humored the thought that in the future people will be like, "It's just not the same without Nomura!".
It's more frustrating waiting for the asskicking than the asskicking itself.

What's wrong with Nomura? He's good at designing outfits...

He is fine but fans seem love the whole zippers and belts thing.

Nomura gets blamed for all the problems now for some reason...even though Nomura was also part of BOTH the SNES "Golden Age" and the PSX "Golden Age".

Yeah, give us a Final Fantasy 5 prequel instead, because FF 5 was awesome.

Seconded.

And Nomura isn't the problem; he's just the face of Squeenix in a time where its main franchises have a large Unpleasable Fanbase.

To be honest, I only dislike Nomura when he's designing purely fantasy-themed outfits. His strength is in urban-inspired wear. As such, I thought the costumes in Final Fantasy X and Birth by Sleep were kind of bland compared to Final Fantasy VIII and The World Ends with You.

A-HYUK!
Fang is still the best thing he's ever created, from both a character design and costume design standpoint.

[up]Yep, followed by Yuna.
Darkness and Disgrace
Auron's my favorite from X, simply because he's awesome to point to whenever someone claims he can only draw androgynous pretty boys.

I'm actually really partial to Squall's design, oddly enough. I guess mostly for it's simultaneous distinctiveness and simplicity.

Though to be honest, it's not zippers that I think he over uses, it's breeches. You know, those not-quite-shorts, not quite-long-pants that even show up on Noctis.

[up]No. It's the belts and straps.

Even Auron, the second best design in X, had too many.

I don't blame Nomura, I blame Wada. And all the failure of Spirits Within says about Sakaguchi is that he shouldn't try directing movies.

The tragedy is that they'll never make a good Secret of Mana series game again.

They only made one Secret Of Mana game.

Yes, I'm nitpicking here.
People aren't as awful as the internet makes them out to be.
[up] And it sucked.

I don't trust them with Mana.

...and nothing about his ability to run a company?

He was also heavily involved in mainline Final Fantasy titles that people still bitch about. Or do I need to drag out X-2 again as a reminder that direct sequel was a pre-merger precedent?

NOT THE BEES
Well if they want strong IP's, all they need to do is drop out of games altogether and focus on Nomura's zipper-and-belt company.

[up][up]But according to some of these people, all direct sequels to Final Fantasy games are bad, so I expect they'd disagree.

Morgan Freeman is God.
I still find it strange that Square's recently done a bunch of re-releases for franchises they don't seem to be interested in anymore.

Re-releases that don't involve much other than porting and fixing a few bugs aren't costly, and then nostalgia markets are pretty lucrative (though not enough to be the main revenue source).

Yo.
Hey, I'm all for a Tetsuya "BELTZ&ZIPPERZ" Nomura based clothing line.

You will look fashionable and unique but you'll still need a few hours to dress or take a leak.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
