Gameplay from an event that happened today for FFXV. The March event will be on the 30th where we'll get the worldwide release date and likely some more info.
Here's a summary I found of the info they revealed: http://www.novacrystallis.com/2016/0...e-time-report/
2016-01-30 15:27Dann of ThursdayShe’s been absent for some time and it doesn’t seem that they’ve seen her since that time with their comments about honoring her wishes and the like. I wouldn’t mind seeing it all get deconstructed for them completely and it even seems like it’s happened a bit for them. Of course, if humans find where the Shifter village is then I wouldn’t imagine mercy or seeking peace would be in their minds at all. Cycle of revenge and all that. Oh, probably not unless it’s some sort of warped view of doing what’s best for them. True, if at least one of them lives then it could still work out. There’s still Annie in her coma as well. Wait for more information as always I guess. I suppose he may have wanted to make sure his son had the right resolve to be able to understand everything well.
Well, they’re still only human and it does open the door to possible improvements in their tech for future games now that this conflict for the moment is over. Yeah, there isn’t too much there with them and the protoss would be more interesting to see. I wouldn’t know as I haven’t played Drakengard before. The story was quite good I thought, though there are multiple endings (3-4 if I remember and the last one was pretty cool in how it worked) that provide deeper views into what’s going on in the world. The new one takes place a long time after though I think there might be one recurring character. It still seems to be available, but new copies seem a bit expensive looking at Amazon. Digital is always an option as well. Yeah, the other stuff is tempting of course, but I’m in no great hurry at the moment.
Yes, seeing what happens with him is one of the things I want to see most. Looking forward to seeing Black Panther and Spider-Man as well. I was thinking as well that we sort of left off on a cliffhanger with all that. Yeah, and probably one that could potentially get messed up depending on how they play it. Hope we get a trailer for it soon, though probably not till the summer.
I actually sort of like that about Kylo Ren since he is just a kid really trying to emulate Darth Vader, but not accomplishing it. The notion of someone on the dark side struggling to resist the light was an interesting thing to see as well. Did you hear the rumor going around that he may show up in Rebels? Not substantiated yet of course, but an interesting possibility. Though I worry fatigue might set in at some point, but if the quality stays then it could be alright. I wouldn’t mind some sort of KOTOR movie either. Will do. I was wondering about that as well and Poe’s unit could certainly qualify.
It could do with a bit of cleaning up perhaps certainly. The MKX story was alright, though nothing groundbreaking. Fun at the very least though.
Yeah, though I hear there was a blu-ray release in Japan that it seems isn’t going to get released here anytime soon sadly. You mean Chaotic Century? I can’t actually recall ever seeing box sets for those, which is a shame since both series were good. Right, Giant Robot Week. I remember the episode they showed of Evangelion was hilariously edited given the content. Not trying to do that. Just not getting too invested in case it all goes to hell. It happens sometimes such as them not renewing the license or just not making anymore. Hmm, strange.
Perhaps, but it’ll likely be a long while before we find out. Yeah, it is fun going through some of the other chefs too and seeing what they all can do. Hopefully it’s doing better now for you. Go ahead if you want, though I don’t know how soon I’ll get to them.
I managed to get that job in Austin so now it’s just a matter of planning to move down there which is a tad stressful.
2016-01-28 18:17Dann of ThursdayYeah, something like that. I’m sure they used what they could for it, but the repairs and such Teiwaz did on the Barbatos were apparently based on old records they pulled on the suit. I’d imagine they each had general appearances that could be changed or adapted given the situation. Going by the preview for the latest they’ll definitely be having some trouble here.
I’m a bit confused as to what’s up with the opening eye slots on the mask. We’re certainly due to start seeing some aces for them and especially what they can do in Gundam frames. I’m trying to think of one though and nothing comes to mind that was like that. So yeah, I guess they do need to worry about replacing her. I sort of wonder why she seemed to have a place in the opening given how long it lasted unless they edit it due to her being gone. Sort of feels like we’re moving on after the latest and not sure they’ll go beyond what we got here. I’m not sure what to think of what the Teiwaz boss was doing at the end. He’s either just up for backstabbing them or playing some sort of game with Nobliss. Anyway, the way the show handles topics like this could use a tad more subtlety to it. I keep getting small vibes that remind me of the A-Laws in 00 and how stupid all that was.
Indeed, though it seems Erina is thinking about it a lot as of the latest though I haven’t seen a translation quite yet to know for sure. I also notice we still haven’t gotten the story behind his leaving the school to go the way he did. Probably join up on what seems to be the developing side of Soma, though even with their skills the deck seems stacked. Indeed, unless he joined to protect it or something.
Yeah, saw those. Bit of a twist but nothing too bad since they’re all alive. Granted the killer is still loose like you said, but there’s still a chance to move forward. But it’s one I’d probably look at later at some point after learning how it doesn’t seem likely it’ll get beyond the point, which would leave a bit of a cliffhanger.
Finished and yeah. I think my ultimate takeaway is that I wish the games had come over in some form as I get the feeling there’s a lot more detail than is in the show and have even come across some info when I went looking that seems to confirm that. Liked Dii as the antagonist since he’s not exactly malevolent despite his actions (he didn’t even really want to kill Genjimaru from the sound of things), but just doing all this out of thinking it’s the best. There was also the mention by Genjimaru that it was too soon for him to wake that I found curious. I watched the first episode of the second series and like it based on that thus far. The animation seems great and Haku is good contrast to Hakuoro. I think he’s probably just a regular human from before that must have been in some sort of stasis. Have some theories on Kuon, but far too earlier to say if they’ll pan out.
I feel like we’re heading into something like that, though I guess they could always pull some sort of victory out of this. I don’t think we’ll see anymore of her this season unless it’s a glimpse near the end of a new model or something. Perhaps and they may deem her too unstable, though keeping Amber there doesn’t seem safe. That or it was a flash forward until after what’s happening here and they wanted us to know ahead of time who the masked woman was.
I’m not sure we will and I’m starting to wonder on that theory about Ozpin since I also saw that note about how his name does not follow the naming conventions everyone else does. I guess I’m just not sure what made them think she was even a threat unless Emerald saw Ruby noticing her.
2016-01-28 01:01Dann of ThursdayI think I might actually be like that as well in addition to the stat thing since I tend to try and scour everywhere for journals and little bits to the point it probably makes things take even longer due to that. Yeah, that was how it was for me in the GBA Fire Emblem game since it wasn’t quite as complicated as the newer ones. I don’t know, I might just go minimal on the Nohr and Birthright routes and then get all obsessive when I get around to Revelation since that’s essentially the last route. I do wish it didn’t take so long to build up supports since that’s how you’d really determine that sort of thing, but there are just so many with all the characters. Oddly, it seems to feature its own set of characters separate from those in the main game. I presume it’s the parents of the characters we’re playing as, but I’m not sure. Still, it isn’t going anywhere.
Yeah, everything is a matter of interest in the end but at least something caught your eye. I’m probably forgetting things as well as I said before. Biggest problem with the first game is that the second half of the game is intensely repetitive if you want to get the most out of the story.
There are definitely a lot of classics and hidden gems to pick from there. Are you planning on building one or picking up a good one that’s already got everything there?
Well, it’s not like they couldn’t make it if they went purely on the software development side, though it’d be bizarre to see Mario and Zelda games on a Playstation or the like. I think my sisters picked that one up though I never played it myself despite finding it intriguing. LO was published by Microsoft though so I don’t know the chances of that happening. I know Mistwalker showed off concept art for a new game they said is being aimed to be on consoles. And technically, Nintendo does have an RPG studio in Monolith Soft now that I think about it, who made the various Xeno games which are all quite good.
Well, we don’t know that they are going to talk it out since it just ended with him exploding and her just being shocked. It could just start with her beating him up or continuing to avoid it. I’m sure we will get to it eventually though since they can tie it into a lot of later events. Oh of course, but I think it’d be a fun idea. Especially VIII. I could have sworn there was some speculative talk about that happening or them wanting it to do it, but I can’t remember. Went through it all and you’re right in that it’s quite good and gradually gets better and better as it goes along. The next episode is supposed to be up in the next few days, though I heard a troubling rumor that copyright claims and such may have gotten to them or something as the episodes 4-5 got struck with a claim and taken down. Hopefully it’s nothing like that. You could probably do some trippy stuff given his mindset during that time. I’ve long heard rumors about XVI being at least in an early form of pre-production with a small team developing ideas, which I don’t really see a problem. VIIR also has a lot of help outside of Square so I’m not sure how much it would impact.
No, I don’t generally do easy mode on things like this as with something like Persona I actually like the challenge of dealing with the enemies. Persona isn’t a series I really concern myself with min/maxing either as it’s just a bit too much given how involved the fusing system is. I’m fine just working towards stronger fusions. The only thing I tend to be a tad careful about is scheduling time in order to advance all the little stories as far as I can with an aim to finishing them all if possible both for the gameplay and story advantages that brings. I can’t say ultimately. It’s been a long time so my memory on a lot of IX is a bit sketchy to be honest. I just remember the final boss kind of coming out of nowhere and some other stuff.
I think it’s only for a few days starting Saturday. Yeah, it’s certainly not just them but I tend to think of Ubisoft as the ones who have sort of set the pattern many seem to follow with these though there are still many different takes. Word is this is more like a reboot than anything else, but I’m sure more details will follow. It’s supposed to be in ancient Egypt, which is a pretty good setting. That’s certainly the truth.
2016-01-24 15:12Dann of ThursdayI don't know what's gotten into me but I'm suddenly watching Iron Chef episodes again. Looked at more Morimoto matches along with several with some of the other chefs. Even saw a match with Ohta as the challenger with Octopus as the ingredient.
Hope you're doing well after that winter storm as well.
2016-01-20 19:19Dann of ThursdayMost likely. Him simply putting forth that view to others would have likely led to it being found out if he didnít figure it out himself. Well, theyíre ďwarriorsĒ as they like to constantly state so theyíre likely told to shoot first and ask questions later as it were in regards to matters like this. That does sound a bit better Iíll agree in their reasons. Oh definitely. Itís ridiculous to hold all of humanity responsible for actions committed so long ago, especially when practically none of them have any real knowledge of the truth. Indeed, and Iíd imagine a visit there might be due at some point though that is likely far off. Iíve been wondering if the one who raised the walls might be a rogue one of theirs or something like that. At some point most likely though Iíd sort of wish for more resolution before something like that, but maybe it doesnít matter. Yes, thatís something it was interesting to hear them mention for sure, though Iím curious how they would take it away. Is it by way of being eaten as weíve seen so far and thus Zeke was threatening to kill him if he didnít get it together? Things are definitely stepping up though. Iím now wondering if the contents of the basement might lead us to an arc detailing Grishaís past along with a look at the Shifters village.
Thatís about it though Iím lacking a bit on the contacts end sadly. But yeah, that should be enough for now.
Hope that works out for you then
Yeah, and I do rather like the power armor and all. I feel like weíll see more since they are quite popular though all the factions are to some degree I guess. Yeah, hopefully it works out like that alright and there arenít any serious setbacks. Final Fantasy XV, Persona 5, Fire Emblem Fates, and Nier Automata are the ones Iím pretty well settled on. Considering whether I should maybe see about Bravely Second as well since I noticed the first became kind of scarce, but weíll deal with that when we come to it in April. Thereís others of course that I want like Horizon, but I figure that can all wait till holiday deals and such since the ones listed should keep me busy enough.
Definitely and I look forward to seeing more of him and what he can do. That was a bit confusing, though ultimately I got why they went for that sort of angle. That could definitely lead to some fun explanations since it isnít quite as easily quantifiable as you can do with Thor.
Oh, Iíll be waiting as well. I still might see it out of sheer curiosity even if itís bad, though itíll depend on the kind of bad if it is. Hope you liked it Full blown movies and each appears to be a cornerstone of Disneyís releases that year so theyíd have Pixar, Disney Animation, Marvel, and now Star Wars films every year. I believe they announced them at the Star Wars celebration earlier in the year (maybe earlier) and then more info about Rogue One started popping up with cast photos and such. Not yet unfortunately on the Hannibal topic. I think itís fine to do this sort of thing for starters since thereís a lot of history untapped you could explore and perhaps they could go more into the new era once weíre either done with this new trilogy or at least another movie in. I know Iíd love a Rogue Squadron movie or something akin to it.
Itís certainly possible and Iíve never gotten the impression they paid too much attention to the story in these games anyway. Weíll have to see though. Given how big the game always is, youíd hope they could contribute some of that towards creating a better campaign to single player even if multi-player is the big draw.
Outlaw Star was actually the first anime I ever bought back in the day after saving up for a while. Still have that old box set on my shelf. Never seen too much of Nadesico though my memory may just be bad on that count. Same here. Well, IBO could always end up going the same way after all but I get your point. I think itís ended by now unfortunately since I think it went till the 18th. Same pretty much in general. Only went for Origin since I had some gift cards from Christmas. Wish Iíd had some the last time they did this deal earlier in 2015 or I might have tried for some more. I do hope they donít go out of print anytime soon.
2016-01-19 18:51Dann of ThursdayYes, on that front I canít say Iím worried.
As am I though Iím wondering if that suit might just be what it looks like without all the modifications that were done to it. Yes, hopefully he does well and lasts.
Hopefully, though I have some concerns on the pacing of it all. I guess and at least the mask thing allows for some interesting developments, even if there are times I almost wish theyíd drop these old UC conventions like the Char clone. Gjallarhorn as a whole hasnít been the most interesting antagonist to me, but perhaps that will change. I guess the consensus is that itís also a Gundam, though it appears to lack the face which seems to stay with the other frames weíve been able to get a look at. Well, catís out the bag regarding Fumitan and all so weíll see if she does the expected thing and dies next episode. The thing with the brother could have been handled better in conveying his whole deal even if it was nice that heís not a completely cartoonish evil adult.
I think Iím most curious how each would react to knowing that Somaís whole philosophy was earned from his fatherís teachings and that itís not quite the same man they have in their mind anymore. Of course, Azami might just view it has him having weakened or something. Makes me wonder if we could see a Shokugeki between those two at some point. Those all seem like good possibilities. And I could definitely see that as a direction Azami could go with this new knowledge. I'm just glad there isnít a break this week or anything.
Eh, which was it? I sort of peeked too when I discovered this was still ongoing and was wondering what they plan to do unless the recent events are supposed to be leading to a conclusion soon which the anime will adapt. Iím about halfway through season one now and the apparent twist was interesting, though Iím not buying it as Hakuoroís true identity. Seems too simple. Edit: Yeah, I'd definitely say that was the case now with Niwe revealing it was a setup. I get the feeling he's going to regret drawing out whatever is lurking within Hakuoro.
Iím getting more and more curious as to whether we might be leaving Beacon sooner than I had thought due to all this suddenly going into overdrive as of last episode. Potentially. Iím going to guess Penny could possibly be alright since sheís a robot unless she sort of ends up reset as a result of this with her personality gone. Phyrra is going to be in bad shape I think and Iím concerned how her fragile state of mind could take that treatment with the Maiden. We also have the tidbit about Raven, which seemed to give the impression that the stinger from last season hasnít happened yet since she only spoke of how she appeared to save her. Iím more interested how he might react to possible Faunus deaths in this whole mess or if it might be a ďnecessary sacrificeĒ kind of thing with him.
Didnít connect that thought but itís an interesting enough theory as there are a number of notes regarding him in the show and by Monty that could imply something like this. Weíve yet to see him do any fighting after all. Well, next episode is as good a time as any. I guess, but Iím not sure what gave them the impression she was any sort of threat or aware of them is all. It might not matter now that theyíve set things in motion.
It seems it might have been a personal crisis perhaps, though the comment on ďThings did not go as plannedĒ is troubling. Hopefully heíll be alright regardless. Yeah, Iím concerned about it as well and hopefully theyíll be alright. I almost wish I knew something about animation to help contribute in some way if possible. Theyíve got a lot of talented people though so best wishes to everyone.
2016-01-17 23:18Dann of ThursdayIím generally the same as well. Itís more of a mental thing on my part on not quite liking the idea that the units at my disposal are not as optimal as they could be. This sort of thing ruined Pokemon for me as when I found out there were a number of secret stats that fed into the strength of you pokemon, it completely ruined things for me despite the fact I would never play competitively where such a thing would even matter. So itís more just me being crazy. It wasnít so bad in that GBA FE game since it was really just about the relationships and I could just pair based on that, but the whole children aspect warps all that for me even if I can go for exceptions at times like Azura with Corrin in the new one. The DLC is sort of weird on that aspect, but I am wondering how theyíll go about it. Edit: Saw a listing on a lot of it and some of it actually seems to be two short prequel maps to the games story, which is pretty interesting.
Other 3DS titles (havenít played all of these mind, but they at least seemed like noteworthy choices to me):
Shin Megami Tensei IV
Devil Survivor 1 and 2
Legend of Zelda OoT and MM
Xenoblade Chronicles (I think this one needs that newer one they came out with recently)
Bravely Default (Bravely Second comes out this year too)
Virtueís Last Reward (Sequel to DS game 999 and also has another installment later this year)
Ace Attorney Dual Destinies
Dragon Quest VII and VIII
Tales of the Abyss
Kingdom Hearts 3D
Thatís all I can think of at the moment and youíve also got the huge backlog of DS games of which there are a lot of great choices. Yeah, I know the PS4 went down to 299 for a short while so something like that or perhaps even lower would be a good sweet spot. Granted, a PS3 still goes for over 250 usually so perhaps it wonít go that low for some time.
I imagine weíll probably see a couple big Nintendo titles to start off and potentially some decent third party stuff depending on how the system is. Granted, those are obvious guesses, but whatever. I like to think theyíre aware that they canít simply rely on that old Nintendo fanbase to get them buy unless they bring out something good to entice customers. They did have a very successful new IP in Splatoon so if they can come up with a few more like that then I think they could have even more success relying on both the newer ones and older titles. Some of their older IP are due for new titles as well. I also canít help but wonder that Nintendo has never really ventured into making their own original RPG IP, instead using their existing titles like Mario, so thereís something they could explore.
I imagine itíll still take quite a while, though the whole thing about Cloud running away scared could change with that outburst at the end. Part of it might depend on how Tifa reacts to it all. Oh, I was talking about Team Four Star doing Abridged series of those games, not necessarily Square remaking them but itís an interesting idea. Iím not even entirely sure IX needs it too much since I think it still looks pretty good and not quite as dated as VII or VII. Still, neither hold the same level of fanbase that VII has. Iíd sooner see some sort of remake of VI. Itís sort of like DBZ Abridged in that regard as that one started out a bit rough before gaining traction as well. Havenít actually checked out the Hellsing one though. Nothing in particular, but felt expanding that could fill in more things and Crisis Core will be around ten years old by the time episode one comes out so another update couldnít hurt with it tied into the story when it makes sense. I wouldnít be surprised if they have a team doing pre-production on XVI actually, though come to think of it they do have a lot of big RPG projects in the works already. Well, XV has plenty of doubters itself (not that I can blame them)and itís not like that gameplay we saw was really all that much more than a teaser of what it could be. I doubt they had much more than that opening section done anyway and it could be more like a vertical slice similar to that original demo Ubisoft did for that Watch Dogs game.
And both will be long enough experiences they could likely be enough to last the rest of the year and possibly into the next one. Always possible unless it was always meant to be ambiguous.
Still sort of reminds me of Destiny in some respects despite the differences, though the increased attention to story from the get go is certainly welcome. Going to stick with a wait and see on this one for now I think. Guess I could try getting into that beta at some point too to try it out if I have time. They could certainly use some new IPs that vary a bit from the whole open world trend theyíve gone heavily into. Though they seem to be taking a break from Assassinís Creed this year for once, which could hopefully lead to that series getting a boost of life.
2016-01-15 18:24Dann of ThursdayYes, a bit surprising to go into this now, but I suppose itís as good a time as any at this point. Definitely sad to see with how the others were reacting and how he wasnít even bent on turning on them or anything. Of course, he had lived then they might have put things together even faster given how perceptive Marco seemed to be. That look into their world view was definitely interesting since it almost seemed like they felt they were carrying out some greater good of some kind. Declaring regular humans to be an evil race is also curious, though implied from before with Frieda. Agreed, heís just some titan with enough intelligence to be useful to Zeke. Not sure if this will end up being the end for Reiner or not as well. I also have to question just how many shifters there are. If there were more youíd think theyíd send a few more than 3-4 if they wanted to finish everyone off now.
Iím not so certain anything will be coming my way anytime soon. Not sure what to do anymore honestly.
That sounds like a good plan to go by.
Well, whatís done is done I guess so itís up to them what they want to do with it. They are probably the most interesting of the factions with the most personality. Totally agree on de Lancieís performance and the others were good as well. Will do, though at the moment Iíve taken a look at the year and gotten down to just getting 4 or perhaps 5 games total out of whatís coming out. Even that may have to go down to maybe 1 or 2 given how things are right now. Everything else I figure can just wait till some huge sale where itís dirt cheap or something.
Yeah, and I still feel he hasnít gotten enough time to shine quite yet as he was more minor in the first film and brainwashed most of the second. Itíll also be the introduction to magic in the MCU so thatíll be interesting to see.
Itís so bizarre to think that BvS will be out in a little over two months. Best of luck on that count and Iím sure itíll stick around theaters for some time given how big it is. Yeah, I donít see the point in complaining much at this point with it since it was solid overall and a good basis. Theyíre doing one between each of the new trilogy films. So this year weíre getting Rogue One with Episode VIII coming 2017, a Han Solo film (sort of an origin film) in 2018, Episode IX in 2019, and then more after that though weíre not sure. Iíve heard various rumors like a Boba Fett (I think this one is possibly confirmed for 2020) or Obi-Wan film. The spin-off films are anthologies which take place all over the timeline. Rogue One is about the team of Rebels that stole the plans to the Death Star which led into the first film and is directed by Gareth Edwards. Itís also got a great cast with people like Mads Mikkelsen.
Apparently one of their goals with this new one is to correct the issue regarding the bare bones campaigns after looking at things like what the recent MK games have been doing.
Thatís definitely true.
Ah, I think thatís right. Couldnít remember. Been watching the recent episodes of DBZ Abridged along with the FF7 series and it made me a tad nostalgic. I feel there could be a good chance of that and itíd be a good return of a franchise to the block. Iím pretty sure they are all doing it and itís also up on their website to take advantage of and the prices there can be cheaper than in the store. I had a gift card from Christmas and so used it to pick up some volumes of Origin. About the only way I can get those right now.
