    What she's doing definitely doesn't fit with the kind of thing the Red Lotus seems to go for, which makes me wonder what sort of influence they might have this season in that case. I'm wondering if we'll get any flashbacks on how she became this way. Yeah, I'm getting Sozin vibes off of her as well, though perhaps not quite as crazy.

    It's something I've seen in many open world games so it wasn't exactly something I found surprising to hear. I'm wondering what they could even do for a sequel, though that could be very cool potentially. And I've been reading some impressions from people who managed to get the game early that are making the Nemesis system sound very fun in action, with some expressing relish when they finally manage to take down an Orc that has been giving them trouble.

    Quick update but we have a trailer for Korra Book 4:

    Man, I didn't see them pulling that at all. Let me know what you think and make sure to watch till the very end.

    Hey, reviews are starting to come out for Middle Earth and they are largely very positive. One of the weak links appears to be the story though going by some of them with it being a bit disjointed especially near the end, which is a bit disheartening I guess. And some repetitiveness, though I've come to expect that in any open world game.

    Yes, mostly more setup but some interesting things talked about like the previous war and some cultural practices that resulted in things like the color themed names. Dog was a surprise too.

    Yes, looks like we know the results of course, but I still want to see the win and the reaction from everyone.

    Good to hear you're feeling better and hope that stays that way.

    Sorry about that.

    I think there might have been and I missed it as it does appear you can target with the Warp ability at the least. Apparently you are restricted to only playing as Noctis while you can give the others commands. There's been some indication it might involve a system similar to the gambits of XII, which was a nice feature but the loss is disappointing. Well, the road trip aspect is one of the hold overs from Nomura's version of the game and given everything else we saw in other previews the darker events will probably come from the trip aspect. My sister did express to me the hope we can ram the car into monsters for damage though I don't know the chances of that.

    Pretty much all my worries lie in the gameplay department as for the most part the general characters and world seem to be the same. I'm really beginning to think Nomura didn't leave all that willingly but perhaps wasn't able to come up with a workable version of what he wanted to do this time and Tabata did have something, so management went with his version and Nomura moved full time over to KHIII.

    Compared to the original PSP it really does look quite good, though you can still tell in some respects that it's an upscale. Glad it won't be that big of a wait either and hopefully they'll have that demo out around the same time, though the early part of next year is looking a tad crowded. Oh, are there videos of the dub? I hadn't seen any so I'll have to take a look.

    That was apparently more of a tech demo and not what we'll be getting next year, which apparently will be more what was shown in the trailer with that big field and all.

    I don't think you're going to see much in the way of acrobatics as the game isn't an Action RPG anymore. In fact, I'd take a guess that a lot of what we saw last year won't be happening in the final game. The new system Tabata came up with is coming across more like it has active elements to it where there is a button you hold for defensive stances like with the dodging and such and one for attacking. You load a deck of weapons for Noctis and the game's system will automatically choose for you which is the best for the situation, though it's not clear if this is something that can be changed to being manually controlled. Essentially, it seems the game from what they're saying is more about how you approach battles than what inputs you are doing in the middle of them as would be the case in an action game.

    One aspect that seems weird to me is that whole camping aspect where if you don't do it regularly enough characters will get fatigued or something. That sounds like it could get irritating if it's done in the wrong way. Also really confused on who exactly this Luna character mentioned is since according to SE is an all new character who looks a lot like Stella. Sister maybe? Interestingly, the room she appears to be in matches one we saw in the E3 trailer.

    What we need at this point is simply more information and demonstrations, which will hopefully be happening at Jump Festa and then of course we'll have the demo. I'm trying to remain optimistic, but I've been seeing Tabata make comments that remind me a lot of what was being said with Dragon Age 2 which is ringing alarm bells.

    This article has some of that, though he does say some stuff in counter to it as well.

    Edit: Seems they're going to do another demonstration of the Type-0 and XV demo from TGS, but with more time to give out information. So hopefully we can get some more clarification.

    Also, it seems SE filed a patent for a combat system which seems like it could potentially be the one we're seeing in XV. Here's an overview with some observations if you're interested:

    Some comments regarding KHIII made as well which seem to be indicating that they're having technical difficulty. Nomura's one comment regarding being removed as Director of XV didn't seem too positive either with him merely saying it was the company's decision and that he can't discuss it.

    Exactly, something in that vein is always good for basic tutorials and character introduction/building so I hope we get some of that. Well, a lot of games can go pretty fast if you stick strictly to the story, but the system combined with side stuff will probably give this a pretty good length by all accounts. Just another week in any case. It's inevitable at this point as we progress. I'd imagine if we heard anything about such a thing it would likely be next year at the earliest. First expansion is out in December, but I may play a bit more provided I can finish Xillia 2 some time soon. Two? I know there was the one, but I didn't see anything on a second. I think Zestiria looks interesting and they're experimenting with more open worlds and seamless transitions to encounters as well as the new fusion system looking like a pretty neat concept. A bit iffy on the story though it seems like a good enough start and it's great to hear we should see it over here by the summer, though I question how sales will be since it's a PS3 game at a time when a lot of people over here are transitioning over in all likelihood. Particularly since I'm a bit out of practice with this sort of game. That video did clarify it a lot and there are some interesting mechanics linked to the stories such as the whole using experience to buy back your rights as well as the Thorn. It's definitely a take I haven't seen before so I'll definitely keep an eye on it, especially since it'll be releasing soon enough. It'd pretty much have to be to get us to keep moving forward with it rather than choosing to go with someone else. True, they probably aren't the kind of thing to really affect all that much, but things like Carver certainly could. It's the sort of thing to expect nowadays with all the creativity.


    Oh, and some interesting news from Blizzard is that they've officially decided to cancel the Titan MMO project. I guess it just wasn't coming together into something fun from their point of view.

    It's a practice that has generally worked for me in any case so hopefully it can do the same for you. I imagine they may be responding to any criticisms on the previous fight and are working to make it as grand and fun as possible hopefully.

    Indeed, at this point we're due for at least a few answers. I could see that too, but if the situation with the Titans escalates then they'll just start coming across as idiots being far too stubborn for their own good. Yes, I suppose it's shouldn't be too long before we start getting info on the next chapter.

    I'll do my best to have the last part up tomorrow. Should hopefully be able to get it up after I get off work.

    Got called into work suddenly. I'll try to have the rest up tonight once I get home.

    True, it seems to be appealing quite a lot out there but I don't see it getting the kind of reception or even the same audience as Marvel movies draw. Seems to be an adaptation of a crossover special of Justice League and Aquaman that happened a few years ago. I don't think there is any official draft of this version though and they easily could have come up with all this on their own or drawn from that idea of making it a prequel. Just about. Yes, it's one of those impossible to answer questions in the end and that it pleased everyone for the most part is the good takeaway here.

    Yes, we'll know soon enough hopefully with how this goes. Yep, good call there on him underestimating his competition. Maybe a unification of flavor or something along those lines? I don't know if that can be a thing though. That would make sense unless they want to expand on what makes Souma's stew superior like what they did with the match with Alice. You're completely right on it being cheap if her view changes on Souma simply from learning who his father is as that sort of reveal would have much more weight if she already has grown some form of respect for him. Hopefully this can lead to her not disappearing for ages. Yes, and I don't even care about the drama aspect of that reveal so much as the comedic possibilities.

    I think we've reached a point in the season where we shouldn't need to focus on the aspect anymore so I think we'll be fine. Well, they don't necessarily need to show us that meeting, but merely mention that it happened to save time. Coliseum would be a good opportunity to demonstrate and show them off. It seems like a fair thing to assume will happen given what we saw and would be good progress between them. I can't think of any time we might see another this season, though he could always insert a music video as an extra when the whole season is given the home release. True, someone like Weiss for instance would likely be more proficient in such matters given how she fights as well as her background. Indeed, it also may indicate why Vale is the their target since if you take out Beacon than the country is essentially defenseless. I do somewhat wonder if some other country is behind this. I'd imagine it won't be too long till her cover is broken though, perhaps by Ruby noticing something that tips her off. Ah, true enough though I almost feel that the internet is becoming a bigger place to do this sort of thing than television, though those companies that have been slower to adapt probably aren't reaping the benefits as much.

    Good to hear. I have found some spoiler images, but as far as I can tell there hasn't been a full chapter release of any sort yet.
