    The primary use of Long Range was putting people in the back row for increased defense without the attack penalty.

    I'm well aware, I just generally found the slot better used with other materia/combos.

    I thought CC did a pretty good job with its materia system so I'm not even worried about that. Sure, some will disappear given the nature of the game but we'll also get new ones.
    Cover could easily work as a special command like in KHII: once equipped it allows you to teleport/rush in front of a party member to take the damage by pressing a button that shows up on screen. (triangle prompts in KH)

    my biggest concern with the action based aspect is how retarded the AI will be.

    I'm perfectly fine with action based battles, lol.

    The fact that they are making the game action based instead of turn based means that we are going to be getting a huge fleshed out FFVII world, far larger in scope than the original.

    I have no idea what the point of cover was in FF15. It's highly epileptic about what does and doesn't qualify and all it does (outside of like a single quest) is boost regen rate.

    Then again FF15 has numerous questionable half-baked unfinished implementations so ehh.

    I'm not seeing how one leads to the other.

    I mean, obviously this version will be much more fleshed out based solely on the fact that it's being cut up into multiple installments and the sheer amount of additional material that's been added to the franchise over the years, but I don't see what action-based combat has to do with it.

    To be fair, Dirge of Cerberus is more of a third person shooter than more action.

    Fairly lengthy digest from Nomura and a lot of good questions with some great answers. If everything makes it into the final build should be a pretty enjoyable experience.

    Dirge of Cerberus is a masterpiece.

    A fucking trainwreck to be sure, but a masterpiece.

    Gotta see the situation differently to see what I'm saying -- not so much the mechanics of an action game, but more so the freedom it gives. The fact that it's an action based game means that there will VERY LIKELY not have instanced fights, meaning they'll want to flesh out the world more to have dynamic fight scenes and areas.

    The game *should* come out to be far less linear than the original at the beginning of the story. This is of course if Nomura really wants to give the game the perfect treatment I know he wants to give.

    Double, but I'll just respond to my own post, since it actually agrees with what I was stating:

You can use it in ways such as to hide in cover until enemy soldiers move along, or to throw a hand grenade from cover to annihilate the enemy. Of course, those who find it bothersome can just throw themselves into the fight.”

    This is basically what I was saying above. The fact that it's an action game now instead of turn based allows for this level of realism, which means they will want to expand on how the world will look and feel.
