    To be fair, that’s something I can appreciate in this day and age when time isn’t quite as plentiful for me as it was in the past. Still, it’s low priority in my mind.

    Have they ever made one that had Unicron? I’m not an expert on Transformers games and thus don’t know if he’s ever made an appearance. He could certainly make for an interesting boss battle. I hear the studio that made them has been regulated to making maps for Call of Duty or something, which is a shame.

    That’d be great but probably not likely. I’m also not sure I want them to keep committing to these HD remasters and such. Big remake projects like FFVII are okay I think given how old, though even that should be limited.

    I believe it’s been mentioned online by SE and others about winter, but the bit about it being at PSX is speculation. We’re not even sure Sony will be doing another of those, though the last seemed to go well so it’s certainly possible. They do I believe but at the same time Nomura has mentioned that one of the reasons they’re going for this now, among others, is that consoles aren’t doing well at all in Japan. It’s hoped that this remake will give the PS4 a big push in Japan then and perhaps then lead to them looking at other games and such. Why not? VII had plenty of silly and goofy stuff alongside the serious plot and I think that should stay. Nomura already said to look forward to Cloud crossdressing, so why not keep that too in some fashion? Honestly, I’d prefer if they drew as little from the Compilation as possible. AC isn’t as big a problem since it’s a sequel, but there’s only certain things I’d like to seen drawn from something like Crisis Core for instance.

    I’d have to think we’ll start seeing the marketing campaign for XV ramp up soon and I think I read something about that indeed being the case. But hopefully they pace it well enough. They were going overboard with all the stuff with Episode Duscae by the time it was set to come out.

    They admitted to toying with the idea, but never really got far with idea until recently. From the sound of things and the way it’s been phrased, it was already in some stage of early production when they made the PC Port announcement at PSX last year. Someone who has had a lot of accurate info on this prior to the announcement said they saw early concept artwork in 2013 or so, but I wouldn’t put the game as having gone into full production of any sort until 2014.

    It would, though the more I think on it the more I find myself doubting it. I suppose it all depends on what exactly they’re going to be doing in terms of gameplay and environments like whether we are having ones like in VII and older PS1 JRPGs where it’s all pre-rendered backgrounds you move through and the like. I’d place that as the most likely as well and it lines up with what insiders have said as well.

    Oh and here’s a translated interview with Nomura about VIIR he recently did:

    I’m fine with it honestly since it still maintains the look and all along with them revealing that the previously shown demos weren’t even running on regular PS3 hardware either. Hopefully they announce an actual date sooner rather than later. Uncharted is in March next year so I could maybe see it being before then, though it’s more likely to be after.

    I’m sure we’ll see a few returning races, though I can’t say I’d ultimately care either way so long as everyone is interesting. With any luck we’ll get more details on these sorts of things pretty soon. Maybe someone like GameInformer will have it as a cover story or something. There’s probably a way to make that seem fun and not like busy work. They just need to find it. I was a tad surprised they had nothing beyond the trailer as well. It’s got roughly a year and a half till release though so I guess it’s not too odd not to have anything they actually want to show off yet.

    Given the characters, it could go either way though a more personal campaign for each would be nicer. Still, they’re both allies and have the same goal so it’s not out of the question that the campaigns might be the same with only minor differences. Hopefully they correct it a bit where you can really use a lot of the powers but still do a non-lethal run as I’d heard the first only really let you play around on one where you’re willing to kill people. So long as the final thing is fun and of course actually runs well, then it should turn out fine. Not sure if I like the whole thing of building enclosures and then having to set up traps to defend them. I kind of like the idea, but the whole thing of having to defend it constantly doesn’t exactly appeal to me.

    That’s an interesting addition, especially for a game in this genre. Promising though.

    Figure we can just add this to the previous bit, but it looks like Division has a release of 3/6/16 so we're going early in the year for that one. I'll probably see about getting into that beta if I can. Confess I'm still worried about this just being another Destiny, which has fun gameplay but with issues including a lackluster story. Though from what I hear, Bungie is taking steps to correct that starting with this new expansion.

    Also, going by the ME trailer, do you think the jetpack might be an actual new mechanic for battle? If so, I think it could add some interesting possibilities by adding some verticality to gameplay.

    Regarding VIIR, what do you think they should change? I feel like random encounters should be gone for one. I feel like you could keep some form of the ATB system if you perhaps used some of the later versions like the one in X-2, which I thought was actually a good thing (probably the best part of that game). I'm actually quite curious if Nomura might use this game as a way to integrate some of the ideas he had for Versus. This could be a chance to make the materia system even more robust and unique as well. One interview also had Nomura saying they'd already achieved rather a lot of progress, though who knows exactly what that means.

    I think one of my biggest takeaways from the interviews I've read is that Nomura sounds like he's having fun doing this, which is pretty great I think.

    Any thoughts on the KHIII footage? I thought it looked quite nice myself. Seeing "Now in Development" again at the end irritated me.

    I'm kind of fearful for next year in terms of releases. I've narrowed it down to two more things this year, but next year has a lot of great stuff.

    This also really feels like one of those games you could get the same experience out of watching it online then actually playing it.

    That would definitely be nice. Do you know if those Cybertron games from a few years back were any good?

    I wouldn't either really as it not's like you'd need to have it in all the time if it came to that. I don't imagine we'll hear anything about something like this any time soon in any case.

    The was something somewhere about staying tuned for winter to get more information, so there's been speculation that Sony might do another PSX and that's where we'll get our next batch of information on it. I hope they keep all the comedy and such to it all and the general feel to the characters. I have this weird feeling they might try to adjust or change to be more like the interpretations in Advent Children for instance. They could easily screw it up though depending on what they change, but we'll just have to see what those changes will be.

    VII, but XV as well really.

    I'm not too sure this was all that recent of a decision to be honest. Perhaps made in the aftermath of whatever happened with XV, but I'm not for one second going to buy that this was in any way all part of some plan.

    Interesting speculation is that this could be a 2017 release, which would coincide with the 20th Anniversary of the original game and the 30th of the series as a whole. I'm not sure this is something they could accomplish in that timeframe, but it'd be a good time to release it. Then again, we don't know how long this has been a thing. I've seen some people who are insiders mention that they'd known for at least a year that it was coming, but couldn't say anything for obvious reasons.

    I think what's thrown some people off is that the game looks hardly any different from when they showed it off for the PS3 back in the day, which I guess may be a fair criticism.

    I'd take more new races over just having a bunch of the same myself. Maybe, but I'd go for fewer well written romances then just having more options. Quality over quantity and all that. I'm sure they'll try to give enough options for everyone though. Given the complaints originally, I'd think they'd put the right effort into making it a fun experience this time around.

    Yeah, I tended to hear that the two paths you could go down were a bit exclusive in how you could use your abilities and such, so giving more options and the different characters should provide a good amount of variety. I was talking of Dishonored, though the same is true of Fallout really. I do rather like that each of the recent games don't really require you to have tried the others. I can't get the Shelter one due not having an iPhone, though the Pipboy one shouldn't be a problem. It's a fun little thing nonetheless.

    Yes, they haven't really shown much at all with the systems and such, so we definitely need more detail.

    It's an Open World RPG-Adventure and it seems there is some sort of crafting mechanic using parts from the robot dinos (sounds kind of similar to Monster Hunter in that respect). Very much want to hear more about the mechanics and gameplay.

    They've already said that Zelda won't be at this E3 unless they decided to change their mind and show it off. Curious what SE has as well. Hoping for that XII remaster.

    Yeah, I've read about some of the plot and it, especially MGS2, sounds a tad bonkers. So much other stuff I'll probably set it aside for some time.

    I'd have to agree having gotten to see some of it in action. A shame, though at least they're still trying.

    It would be fantastic if they did, though given the whole tech of the PS3, I'd have to wonder how well it would work. They also have that weird rental service already.

    Having come down from the initial high from that announcement, we just need more details on what this will entail. I hope they keep some of the sillier aspects from VII and of course take the time to expand the story. Gameplay may be the biggest curiosity. I'd sort of want them to keep the ATB system because I just can't imagine anything else.

    I just hope it isn't terrible.

    I hope Nomura was happy to go onto that project despite having devoted so much time to XV. Still sort of feel that might not have been what he wanted necessarily. Or has he talked about a want to redo VII before?

    Very happy to see it too, though it's too bad it wasn't coming out this year. Nice to just get these long running no-shows out of the way.

    I don't think the date is too outlandish since they've probably been working on it since ME3. From the looks of things, what we're seeing seems to match those survey details and all. Oh, I hope they improved it to something more fun to use.

    Nice that it's free too and a new foe is always good to see in order to expand the universe.

    Expected they'd do it, but definitely good to have confirmation of it. With dual protagonists too! Some of the new abilities looked pretty sweet as well. That's another one I never got around to sadly. The tie-in stuff is pretty good I'll agree.

    I'm not sure how I feel about that particular set-up honestly, but we'll just have to see.

    That Horizon game looked really interesting I thought. Of the new stuff announced so far it has my attention the most.

    Now to see what Nintendo and SE have for tomorrow.

    So, uh, I'm on Neogaf quite a lot, especially during E3. And there's a rumor going on once again that a remake for FFVII for PS4 will get announced. The person who claimed it has been verified to have a source that is considered legitimate, but of course that's not confirmation since it could still end up being incorrect. But, you know, maybe.

    The Last Guardian could finally be making a reappearance as well.

    Yeah, I've heard a lot about it in the past, but never got around to actually trying it. My sister recently got that HD collection for cheap at a garage sale and along with this new one coming out and getting people excited, I was thinking about eventually trying it out. Whenever I get everything else out of the way of course.

    Oh, and looks like there's a new Transformers game coming made by Platinum Games called Transformers Devastation. Full retail release, original VA like Cullen and Welker along with five playable Autobots with a customization system and the usual combo action system you see in their games. No idea if it'll turn out well, but it's something at least.

    Oh, out of curiosity, do you have an opinion on MGSV? I've never played any of the series, but was strangely curious about this one.
