See I can see him as a final boss / main adversary. You know something is clearly off with the guy. That's fine. But the whole 'killing Luna thing' screams way too much like Sephiroth.

He can't be from qa because they don't get to play the whole game.

He can't be from marketing because they have no idea of the development history of company, not in this detail.

He can't be a dev because he wouldn't have any idea of the inside politics for SE.

In conclusion, this is a bunch of horse shit so best to ignore it instead of using it to fuel the flames.

Only way he'd be able to know ALL is if he was Tabata himself, no?

Funny thing, even though I mentioned the Eraskus LaMata bit in the other thread, I clearly remember back then, there was a considerate amount of people who drank the Kool-Aid.

Ms conference got Leaked so I am guessing he came across the leak, maybe saw how shit the demo will be and create his own story.

Ff15 still look bad so I will wait for the reviews and stuff before buying.

Second thought, I think I can see many parts of this "leak" end up being true, like the story spoilers, and that only one main city.

Prepare for the worst FFXVGAF! If it ends up suck, let's just play DQVII and SMT4 Apocalypse.

The stuff about the story sounds so stupid that it could be real though.

This is the most LOGICAL thing said about the topic, and could very well be true(more so than the proposed "leak"). MS had a leaky ship, and these leaks could've very well been there even before they trickled down onto the GAF. All it took was someone on the inside(a scrub that came across the leak and wanted some attention) to benefit from the internet admiration.

Not gonna read this thread or any of the spoilers but I'll repeat what I said in the other thread which is that it seems to me the most likely scenario is this guy knows someone with insider info on what would be shown at E3 and then just made everything else up.

It just seems really unlikely to me that one person has access to all this info on FFXV's development, including the whole history with Nomura.

It doesn't even sound like the guy read the script. It sounds like he's playing telephone with information someone else provided him. Note how he keeps referencing the "rewrites" to cover his ass. He's probably North American because of the way he types and his references to english voice work. He knows story beats, but he doesn't know how those story beats actually play as a game. The only thing he's confident about is the first 2 hours of the game and the Titan boss fight.

My guess is that he's a part of QA and got a short spoiler briefing from Square Enix for context before he did QA for the endgame. The parts about Square Enix inner politics are bullshit.

My thoughts exactly. He sort of hinted that he gets this info from QA, and there is no way a QA tester would be privy to any internal politics about SquareEnix, particularly about whether or not FFXVI is in development.

Marketing, also that's most likely out-sourced to someone, no way the main dev team is working on it.

Theoretically Prompto VR is a stationary light-gun game of a few boss fights with the ability to stare at Cidny as she poses in various ways at some point.

This.

The only thing we know he got right is the Trial of Titans demo thing, and MS conference stuff ALWAYS gets leaked in advance.
I'm guessing he knows someone inside MS, and is making up everything else to spark threads like these.

None of the story stuff sounds bad. Sounds like your typical FF which is kind of disappointing if you were hoping for a very grounded and unique story I guess. The development stuff is worrying though.

Didn't you see how awful it was? lol, yeah it's probably not even made by the dev team, do we even know it's available day 1? yeah.

Some of it is likely made up but I feel there is some truth in here too.

The story details are pretty blasť. I'm not even bothered by being spoiled. Typical Final Fantasy fare. The gameplay bits are worrisome, but they're too ridiculous to be true. Square Enix isn't going to publish a game in 3 months from now that can't even run on Xbox One.

Again how could you know about the development of the game, especially in such detail that only 2 hours are barely playable on PS4/XBO. Then he says that the Episode Duscae demo was developed for a long time but it was another short turn around AFAIK. He claims the same area barely runs on PS4/XBO now, like he has access to almost every build in detail.

I'm not sure why you guy are saying the story seems normal.

According to this it says that they're struggling to put flashback scenes in the game, are constantly reworking the script though the VA deadline is likely going to be missed, and went through several rewrites. The stuff about the final town is iffy too. All of that excludes them clicheing up the story and cramming in a trilogy into one game.

Which is baaad.

Well according to the leak, the localization team is working directly with the main team.

Wouldn't be far-fetched to believe that they've been able to play the builds directly and/or learned other stuff from osmosis.

You only go into Lucis for the final boss fight, so don't get excited about it.

Yeah, so S-E decided to just reveal the final battle on Insomnia (that car scene with the city at night) and boss on the E3 trailer after trying so much to avoid spoilers until march?

Strange, really strange.
