For some reason, the title made me think Square announced a live concert featuring remixes of Final Fantasy and TWEWY music.

I was sorely disappointed when I entered the thread. :(

No Triple Triad means no interest from me. I know there are clones around of the concept, I'd throw all my money at an official iOS game of it though.

The service name GREE comes from a hypothesis, Six De"gree"s of Separation postulated by social psychologist Stanley Milgram in 1967. Six degrees of separation is a hypothesis that everyone is approximately six steps away from any other person on Earth. If a chain of a friend of a friend statements are made, on average, any two people in the world can be connected in six steps or fewer.

Tangential learning, thanks again video games.

Gree is just some phone service in Japan, yeah? So there's no point in me getting mad at how bad these look because I'm never going to see them again after clicking out of this thread.

Haha. GREE sure likes those card games. I guess when you mandate that every single game is a micro-transction hell card collecting game, developers can't be assed to put much actual effort into them either. Lolz.

There are multiple bi-weekly magazines dedicated to mobile and Gree games.

Hell, Gree has their own magazine. I once skimmed through it and it really was ALL card games. Mind blowing.

Honestly I am pretty sure I destroyed some future career chances when a guy from GREE was trying to convince me to join the company and name dropped that they were working on a FF game.

I am pretty sure my response was "I bet it's a stupid card game, huh?" which he had no comeback for. lol

I've spoken with Gree a few times. I'm quite shocked that the social game development culture japan actually discouraged creativity in order to not to change the best formula that gives the best revenue per user. Maybe I can share some of the principles here later. For a creative industry they're really...shocking.

Yeah based on some of the comments here, it's clear that the card game nature of social mobile games in Japan is not a creative choice but a systemic problem based on their revenue models. It'll definitely be interesting to have extra context from those who have had dealings with GREE. Although I'm not sure if it would be better for this thread or for a new thread. There might be more people interested in discussing the business nature of GREE, but might not be interested in a S-E mobile thread. :)

Yeah calling the Japan mobile/social game scene a "creative industry" is stretching the definition just a tad bit.

Aren't they all more or less the same game but with different visuals to try and attract fans of different franchises and properties? That's what it basically looks like to me.

Yup. In some cases exactly the same save the card art. But it's not just gree, all the other big companies use the exact same gameplay format with different cards.

Yeah this is one of the reasons why it was such a stupid name to keep when they started expanding overseas.

It's supposed to be one of those horrible scrunched up Japanese words where they combine Mobile (mobairu) and Game (gemu)

I think it's pretty fitting though. Everytime I see Mobage, I think of garbage. :)

For a second I thought this meant Square-Enix were attempting to port Final Fantasy X to Gree...
I find it strange that almost all the FF-compilation-thing games (like Theatrhythm, Dissidia, and this), they never seem to include FFXIV.

Yep.. the situation with Japanese companies making smartphone games where all they can do is just the same card game stuff is just sad. Worst thing is that stuff sells, so they have no reason to stop it.

Can't wait for that stuff to stop selling so much just to see everybody trying to come up with the new fad.

The games fans want require time, effort, money and talent they dont have. They expend none of those on these games, they are copy/paste jobs

I think a year of waiting for a localized Type 0 is plenty of time, dead system or not.

They are capable of using the thing we know as the human mouth that is capable of coherent speech.

Yet we don't even have that.

And let's be honest here is another XIII series game something a lot of people even WANT?

And do most FF fans want another MMO?

It's not about what the fans want, it's about what the company wants.

Would it really be so hard for them to say "We'll bring Type-0 over at SOME point"? I mean, they can muster the effort for Nomura to announce that he will announce an announcement of an announcement in which he will say "please wait for Versus XIII" ever six months. Can't they say SOMETHING about Type-0?

This is what bugs me. Square makes good games, but then they refuse to localize them.

"Moba" is the first two syllables in the katakana version of "mobile" and "ge" is the first syllable in "game".

Far, far too many words are abbreviated in this way in Japan these days.
