Final Fantasy XV dev put together this DirectX 12 tech demo for Microsoft


Square x Soft

It's so weird how many computer companies and developers had or have the word "soft" in their names. Squaresoft, Microsoft, Ubisoft. It's like a menagerie of Pau Gasols out here am I right folks.

I put together some words in the headline pretty good because I had to fit Final Fantasy XV (because some of this technology will be used in FInal Fantasy XV), DirectX 12, and Microsoft (because it debuted at Microsoft's Build 2015) in there and it really starts to eat away at your quest for brevity, you know?

I was a bit worried when they named the video "Art&Tech," because I can see the tech. There are numbered iterations of things, graphics card floppy disks spinning, but what about the art? Well, Square Enix quieted me with an opener of a pretty woman crying. Doesn't get more artistic than that.

Anyways, look how that DirectX 11 Final Fantasy-esque demo that blew Samit away in 2012 looks like absolute fucking dog shit compared to this new DirectX 12 Final Fantasy-esque demo.
