What the hell? This looks like one of those crappy third-party Men in Black games for the GBA!

Final Fantasy VII: Before Crisis Announced
Posted by Andrew McClure at 05:55:40 PM EST on 5.11.2004.

When rumors of a Final Fantasy VII sequal first surfaced (which was probably about five minutes after Final Fantasy VII was released) there was always talk of a game staring the Shinra G-men, The Turks. After Advent Children was announced most have given up on hopes for a game starring the Tarentino-esque hatchet men (and woman) but fear not for Square Enix has just announced Final Fantasy VII: Before Crisis.

The game is a cellphone exclusive and it takes place six years before the events of Final Fantasy VII. The game will be about the Turks rise in the Shinra company. It appears to be an Action RPG with some turn-based elements. Also up to three players can join in if they all have the game installed on their cell phones.

It is unknown at this time if and when US players will get a chance to play this title. The cellphone platform has yet to be announced but all the other Square Enix cellphone titles have been for the Japan exclusive NTT DoCoMo. But keep those hopes up: Square Enix has stated that they want to support the cellphone videogame market on both sides of the pacific.

WTF, mate? ^^

OB1
I know...

A Black Falcon
How strange...

Great Rumbler
That game looks kinda...dumb.

OB1
Very dumb. And why are those guys fighting Spyro? :lol:

Great Rumbler
It's cross-promotion! Looks for Cloud in the next Spyro the Dragon game!

OB1
Woohoo!

A Black Falcon
This game is going to be bad...

Great Rumbler
Yes, yes it will be.

OB1
Well we asked for a new FFVII... :S


Square exec: Hey these stupid fanboys have been bugging the fuck out of us for a new FFVII for years now.

Square exec #2: How about we just make a really shitty FFVII prequel for cellphones and add characters from crappy PlayStation games as bosses?

Square exec: BRILLIANT!

Game companies must have discovered how fun it is to piss their fans off... it's a new trend going on. Square just recently jumped on the bandwagon. (Personally, I blame Enix for some of it, but FFX is a sign that Square was already declining before the merge took place.)

Their all weilding Guns and they look like Homosexuals while doing it.

One time, I saw these two guys making out, and it was the gayest thing I ever saw until I saw those screenshots.

Cel phone game? *looks it up* Interesting...

Why would you blame Enix? Enix always made great games, need I mention Illusion of Gaia? FFX was indeed a disappointment, but FFX-2, which I had big worries about, ended up GREAT by adding in all that nonlinearness we missed out on in FFX.

Anyway, this game, reading about it, it's actually interesting. Are you talking about that behemoth monster when you say spiro? No, that's a behemoth, very common monster in FF. It IS rather brightly colored in the screen shots I saw though. I hate that it's a cel phone exclusive though. That's completely idiotic. Listen up cel phone companies. Look at N-Gage and realize that no one will ever take a phone seriously as a game console! Best just to keep making Tetris and Pacman clones and leave it at that. Anyway, I'd certainly be mildly interested if S-E decided to port it to GBA. While it's about the most boring thing I've ever heard a game be about (seems it's about young go-getters seeking promotion in a big level company), it might end up pretty fun.

I don't care what it is, it looks jut like Spyro.

A Black Falcon
Doesn't to me, just like a purple dinosaur-ish thing...

alien space marine
I hate Behemoths they killed me to often.

OB1
Spyro is a purple dinosaur-ish thing.

Just look at the two. Both are dinosaur-ish, both are purple, both have yellow-ish wing/fins and horn thingies.

Great Rumbler
That's Spyro alright.

A Black Falcon
You're right, from those pics they do look very similar...

OB1
Told ya. :p

A Black Falcon
Still, that thing's a bit bigger than Spyro... :D

OB1
:rolleyes:

Great Rumbler
That doesn't not even not matter!
