    Indeed, I'm largely on board with what I'm hearing and most of my questions will hopefully be answered with more detail down the line or when we can finally play the demo. Given the last one was largely gameplay oriented it would seem appropriate for another story one unless they don't want to reveal much more. Given that they're promoting it being there I'd have to hope they've got some substantial information to reveal beyond a trailer. I could see a release either at Jump, at the end of the Demo, or at E3.

    Saw a video and if I'm not mistaken the lead villain is voiced by Steve Blum.

    And that it's not giving them much trouble. It'll probably be a while in any case and I don't really expect much new info this year or next, which is fine in my opinion as I'd rather it not be rushed.

    I'd still be surprised if they ever got around to remaking it unless they get in serious trouble and need something like that. I'd imagine Nomura would definitely be involved provided he doesn't leave anytime soon, but I'm curious if they'd change the gameplay as well.

    And interesting to note is that KHIII is apparently now running on Unreal Engine 4 as opposed to the Luminous engine.

    That could certainly work I suppose, though I don't know how you'd keep doing the Nemesis system if you expand it like that. Though perhaps they could always have him be someone who was operating in the background during LotR, though that could be stretching it. I imagine they will since it'd be best to improve and keep the good will they've earned with this first entry. I sometimes feel the disjointed feeling in the story happens a lot in open world games like this when you get caught up in the extra activities. I haven't started it yet actually. Still working on finishing Xillia 2, which I've almost finished with the post-game material being the only thing I need to do for the most part. It's more a matter of not spending the money/credit on something I might not get to for months and that if I just wait I could get it for cheaper. I certainly hope they do since I know some people are still a bit bitter about Vesperia PS3 never coming out and that whole thing with SE and their special versions always bugged me, so hopefully on both ends we don't see as much exclusion. Pretty much and usually the announcement comes later on enough that it's not too irritating. They're definitely still working on it I think and I wouldn't be surprised if they release it and then add more features later. I definitely like when you can fight back as well and one of my hopes with this is that you might actually get to take down the villain that we see in the trailers since he's the kind I've seen in horror games and others where it's cathartic to seem them defeated. Sort of in a manner of conquering the fear you'd developed. Will do, I just need to figure out exactly what I need though by what I've looked into it shouldn't be much. They do seem to pop up rather fast these days thankfully and hopefully the Keep has enough to it to keep one occupied.

    That'd definitely be preferable on my part as well. Another new IP would be a good thing to see since right now it's just sequels and such from older franchises.

    Yeah, it can really help cut the tension and seeing something scary with other people experiencing the same thing is more enjoyable than on your own.

    The comments give me the impression he does as well, which was a relief really. I've seen some spoilers posted though they go so far I have to think they're fake. They always liked it as well, though I think took issues with some stuff later on. That sort of thing always makes the wait more agonizing since even if you get a new chapter not much happens.

    Will get the rest tomorrow.

    Do we blame Super Friends for that whole perception about him being lame? I've never gotten it when you actually take a look at what he can do. In the end I don't think it'll be as highly regarded as the LotR movies were, but I think it should be able to end on an good note with that battle. They had better not pull that fake out ending stuff Return of the King did though. Wow, that far ahead in terms of potential ideas? Well, good to have some sort of plan on their part and it also sounds like they're prepared if that doesn't happen. I suppose the change in actors would indicate a timeskip? That's good to hear since I wasn't entirely sure how he'd be at it and that approach is a good one to go with if no unexpected. Some of the changes seems a bit odd, though largely in the name department. That's nitpicking I guess. Oh, that well? Not too bad then and hopefully they can maintain good numbers to keep the show going.

    Based on summaries, while a large part of it does seem to be about Subaru's backstory and potential redemption we do get to see the aftermath. Souma seems to have gained some good rep with everyone for this and Takumi has his fire back. Only one bit with Erina, but not a bad one with Souma apparently telling her that one more win and then he has the right to challenge her. I'm not really sure if we'll actually see that come to pass though and I can't help but note that Eizan has largely been a background presence despite claiming this would be where Souma's rise would stop. We do seem to be heading right into the next match so that'll be fun.

    Yeah, seeing this episode makes it more understandable and it looks like it just wears you down if the numbers are great enough. Yes as was the clarification on his reason for being a huntsman, though I hope we get to see him fight next time. Zwei doesn't seem to have much to do quite yet, but we'll see what they decide to do with him. Yeah, it's shaping up like next season will be a tournament arc while also probably seeing a big strike by Cinder so it'll be a good chance here to learn a bit more before the season ends. This episode definitely did a great job making them come across as a bigger threat given their absence as of late. I think it's something we could see down the line, though probably not for some time. Her somehow using them would definitely be a way to strike a blow and distract Beacon, though it'd also be interesting if they saw the chaos going on with Cinder's activities and decided to attack with that perhaps disrupting Cinder's plans. Perhaps they can come to a realization by finding out why Ruby wasn't asked, but this was definitely a good thing for them to deal with now. At least he's somewhat amusing in how utterly useless he is unlike his aunt, but I certainly can't blame anyone either. He's just too good at his job I guess. I do enjoy how deadpan he often is around Wu, though I imagine he's not going to be tied down to him that long. A successful assassination would free him up to. Hell, if they wanted to be sneaky they could frame him for it and force him to go on the run, which could lead to a conflict for Bolin as well. It ultimately depends on how they end up portraying how she came to be where she is as well as what she does from here. Avatar hasn't done gray all that often with it's villains. I suppose the only hope is how she herself wants to be remembered if she cares about that. If they wanted to go really villainous they could go for something like killing Korra to bring about the next Avatar who, as an Earthbender in the next incarnation, if everything is under Kuvira's control could be found and then brought up as pretty much the ultimate weapon. Or I'm thinking this out way too far. Yes, hopefully we get some of that soon enough, though I feel Bolin isn't that hard to figure since he ultimately just seems to want to help people and sees this as the best method. I hope that works out as well and as you said he ultimately hasn't changed that much in personality in wanting to help people. I saw a comment from someone that based on what the guy said to her at the end she may have thrown the fight for money, though her still being weak would make more sense. Unless it's meant to show how low she's gotten since then. I also think that given Kuvira's habit of blinding her opponents with those bands that Korra might be due for some lessons from Toph in her style of earthbending.

    Yes, though apparently some of what was shown this time was in the way of more advanced abilities, which makes sense. I'm curious what they'll be showing off in November, but with Jump I'd think we'll get a new story trailer. What'd be even better would be if they had some sort of playable version for people to try, though that may be a bit early especially with a demo already coming. A release date would be great too.

    Yes, it gave us a lot of insight regarding the characters and opened up the chance for more along with some interesting story bits concerning the Grim. I'm really thinking we might see a really old Grim capable of speech at some point. And I'm getting that vibe with Shokugeki as well unfortunately. I can understand the stuff with Takumi, but would rather move on to the reactions of others. Maybe next week.

    Watched Korra and thought it was a good first episode which also teased a lot.

    Hey, they did that whole repeat showing off Type-0 and XV as well as clarifying a few things. Looks like jumping is in fact in while they confirmed you only control Noctis among other things.

    Here's a link for the XV portion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihlaR7ubfOg

    And one for the Q&A part translated: http://gematsu.com/2014/10/final-fan...s-new-gameplay

    Looks like we'll have something November as well and then Jump Festa for December. Good on them for keeping the info coming at a steady pace. I believe they did something similar for the relaunch of XIV.

    I'd be surprised if we ever get the full story. Not that surprised I guess. I'll be starting that one soon.

    An interesting comment from Nomura popped up: http://sqex.info/message-on-kh3-from...ial-ultimania/

    Sort of confirms he wasn't taken off the project on the best of terms, though perhaps he'll channel all that into making KHIII even better.

    Yeah, sorry about that. I was sort of just posting anything that seemed valuable even if a lot of it overlapped. Caught in the moment and all the news after such a long silence I guess.

    He definitely seems to be taking part of the system from Type-0 and simplifying it further apparently and the possibilities that Warp has for battles are definitely intriguing. Especially if there are perhaps different ways to utilize it strategically. I think it's mainly about adjusting to what it's going to be now compared to what we thought it was going to be before. The repetitiveness is definitely one of the biggest risks I think, though that's always been a case with RPGs. I've been trying to maintain a positive outlook as well and aside from the battle system the world and story largely appear unchanged so it could all work out fine provided it comes together. Not to mention that Square can't exactly afford for this to be anything less than a hit I think. True, I think it's just something I need elaborated on more or demonstrated. They're actually going to be doing another stream of Type-0 and presumably the XV demo they showed off on Thursday that'll be expanded off the earlier one since they didn't have as much time before. They'll be releasing an subtitled version as well so hopefully they take the time to reveal more information.

    Alright, I'll look for those then.

    It makes me a bit worried for that Luminous engine of theirs which takes me back to all the problems Crystal Tools caused last generation as well. I'd hope they'd make sure everything is alright with it in the end since if they released some half-assed version then a lot of people would be quite upset.

    That seems a good approach since they really haven't told us a thing about any of the others recently beyond the core group. I'm liking the sound of the demo though since apparently there are areas you can explore with some higher leveled monsters that lead to some items like weapons and such.

    Anything is possible and Nomura even did new art for Cloud for it. I did find it funny that the company who made the game, CyberConnect2 (.hack, Asura's Wrath), outright said they'd really like to tackle an HD remake of VII. Their President apparently asked Square's if they were interested in making one and that if the game is successful they should go ahead. He may very well have been teasing given how many people want a remake. Hell, maybe if XV is a success they'll give the project to Tabata if he's interested. He already did a prequel after all.

    I'd sort of wonder what you'd do for a sequel since this whole set-up feels like it'd be good for a one shot adventure that also foreshadows things to come in the books. Though at the same time, if it does well I guess it'd be inevitable that they'd go for the franchise potential. I plan to and may put off buying Evil Within or going back to Destiny since I don't see why there'd be any hurry on those. Oh, I don't know anything about that one and probably wouldn't play it anyway. I don't really either generally, but read a bit of the general idea for this one when looking at the battle systems. Yeah, it makes sense from that viewpoint, though I worry they'll do some sort of enhanced edition for the PS4 that the West won't ever see. And my worries regarding the sales are largely more over here than in Japan since the turnover to PS4 has been a bit higher than over there and I'd just like to see the series continue to do well so that they keep bringing the series over. As for PS Now, that seems to be more of a rental service with some rather high price points, though hopefully they perhaps expand it so you can purchase it for keeps to some degree. I think the only other horror game I've done when I think on it is Dead Space, which I never got around to finishing and isn't as intense on the resource management as in this game. You're right in that some guides should pop up soon enough or at least general advice. That aspect does look nice so hopefully the release is fun and engrossing enough. Could be worse I suppose. Or in the guides, though generally those don't go into deep detail as to what you're doing beyond a gain/loss perspective. That definitely sucks and is one of those things that is unfortunately a toss up sometimes with how they do these settings. I wish they'd be more accommodating with things like this. It's something I've been looking into a lot lately, but unfortunately at this time I don't have a set-up to do so. Still, I've had my eye on a capturing device so I may pick one up if funds permit, in which case I'd be happy to since it would be a good game to try it out with. I'll let you know in any case.

    I heard somewhere that they actually don't want to do another MMO at this point, which may be wise on their part since I'm not sure if they could duplicate WoW's success.

    If they're Let's Plays with commentary that can help too since the players freaking out could make it funny too.

    Well, suspense can keep interest going though in some cases it could also be due to them either not knowing where to go with everything or wanting to drag it out if they have no ideas for new projects. Good point. They probably wouldn't be driven to actually do anything unless it was imminent that they were going to all get killed and even then they might just try to run and hide. And at least they generally adhere to that schedule along with there being a number of translators. You mean the Shojo? I know my sisters have complained about that one in regard to releases before.

    I'd think it should be able to be translated without too many issues, though I know there was a bit of lead-up in the Aquaman series to this. Yeah, I've read about that as well and was probably one of those links he came up with when trying to tie The Hobbit into what was becoming Lord of the Rings. I've been hearing good word thus far, so I'll have to check it out at some point. I'm curious how far planned the show is. How's Gordon thus far?

    Hopefully we get a bit from everyone, though I also imagine we'll end on a lead in to the next match. It was a good way of going about it if also kind of risky in it's own way, but does a good job of showing just how far he can go with these sorts of endeavors. The match, if anything, has probably benefited Souma's skills by placing him in such a situation, which is one of the points of it all I suppose. Indeed, he only went one step ahead thinking that would be enough but underestimated his opponent in the end. Hopefully there's some interaction and not simply her giving some comment before walking away. Her not having a helper definitely opens the door for her to try this on her own, which has a lot of potential for comedy as well. Given how he is I wonder if he'd even stick around to do that sort of thing or do the first lesson and then just off and leaves.

    I'm not going to lie, I got very suspicious for a second with CFVY for some reason. I liked the reactions to Zwei like Weiss going all gaga for him and all of Blake's cat-like reactions. Agreed, it's starting to look like we may end this season with them going on this mission perhaps followed by the aftermath. Tournament next time I guess, though for some reason I thought we'd conclude all of it. I feel like the Grim haven't been much in the way of a threat since the early episodes so seeing them come back up may be a good thing though at the same time I wonder if Cinder has some plans to use them. It'd be sort of funny if a bunch of Grim showed up whenever Cinder puts their plan in motion and has to deal with them and the hunters, giving us a three-way fight. They'd be ripe for taking out having just come back exhausted from a hunt if that's the overall plan. And this week to boot, which came up pretty quick. Yes, she doesn't exactly look happy at what's happened so perhaps through that we'll get looks at what happened. She's bringing order to all the chaos and giving stability to all these people. It just might mean we'll see what happens when that goes too far. I sort of wonder if she'll have her own version of the Dai Li or perhaps simply took them in. The potential Naziism comparison is interesting, as are the potential comparisons to the Fire Nation. I also note Bolin seems to be wearing a Metal Clan outfit which makes me wonder where he stands, though I can't really imagine him being "evil". Also not sure what Mako is up to. I think it's a possibility since if she's still got some mental issues it could be interfering with her ability to access the Avatar State.
