If this is old, sorry, but Soul Hackers has been discounted everywhere, including digital. Now it's $29.99.
This offer will end tomorrow, 14th of July. So anyone who wants to purchase this game with the $30 you get from the FE:A + SMTIV promotion deal... tough luck :P

Always wanted to play Soul Hackers. This is great news.

Not sure if this is the right place to discuss this, but here goes...

Also, here's a survey from SE asking how much you liked the world, visual design and main character: https://form.square-enix.com/a.p/933/

Looks phenomenal. I think it's a good idea for Square Enix to focus on the Luminous Engine and start their next gen endeavor with a bang. I somehow wish they'd scrap Versus XIII and focus on this instead, if they haven't already done that.

Honestly, there's nothing the current gen consoles really offers that'll make SMT any better; the games go for stylized art rather than realism and I don't think the current technology would do anything other than smooth out some edges. The PS2 was pretty good at rendering models very close to the original artwork, and we've seen that the handhelds are as powerful as the PS2, if not moreso. Unless you are really just that averse to handhelds, I'd say give this game a chance - it did, after all, JUST get announced.

Actually, the PS2 renders were nothing like the artwork. There is big room for improvement presentation-wise.

doesn't look like they're ready yet.

"We do know that the game won't be at E3 next week - CD Projekt will not have a booth at this year's show." - http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2012/1512.html

Correct.  I confirmed with their PR after the actual announcement, and it will not be at E3.  Maybe Gamescom?

Oh, I see. They can take their sweet time with this one, though.

Here's an article about it

http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/171358/CD_Projekt_ventures_beyond_The_Witcher_with_Cyberpunk.php

It's not just a "cyberpunk" game, it's apparently based on R. Talsorian Games' pen-and-paper roleplaying game Cyberpunk.



Can't freaking wait. I hope the peeps at CDP are the ones to finally do the genre justice, especially since they'll probably call the game "Cyberpunk".

In any case, expecting to see this in some form at E3.

CDP and Cyberpunk?

HOLY SHIT YES!!

Since SMT IV is coming out for the 3DS I'm betting on Persona 5 coming out for PS3/360. Atlus has definitely shifted its priorities from the main series to the Persona sub-series, which is understandable, albeit disappointing.

I'm still not sold on either handheld, but this might convince me to finally get a 3DS over a Vita.

I'm really okay with this.

Cause this looks like the real deal. God I'm glad I own a 3DS.

Can't tell shit from this, but find it mesmerizing for some reason. Hype.

I do feel disappointed with today's RPGs. I still have fun playing them, but I don't get wowed as often like I did for the SNES, PSX, or PS2. To put it simply, the 2nd or 3rd tier quality RPGs for those systems, the kind that are still fun, is the best today has to offer. I suppose this isn't a big deal if you like Western made RPGs since I feel like their quality almost never elevated itself out of 2nd or 3rd tier and they're still plugging along today. But for RPGs of Japanese origin, they really have taken a big hit.

Not sure I agree with what you have to say regarding Western RPGs, but the rest I can't argue against. JRPG-wise, this gen was a huge step down from the previous 2. And even though a few gems of the past few years can be found on handhelds, it says a lot about the state of the genre that developers are retreating to that lower-budget/less-risky market for the more innovative projects. And we haven't got a single SMT title for current gen home consoles yet...

But then again, the Souls games are better than most JRPGs I played ever. Truly the genre's saving grace for this gen.

So who wants to place bets, what will come out first? Versus or Beyond Good and Evil 2?  I'm voting on BG&E2.
I'll go with The Last Guardian.

Calm down.
┬─┬ノ( _ ノ)

The game never existed out of a couple of trailers and mock-up gameplay vids. Nothing shockingly upsetting really.

This line though... this goddamn bullshit of a statement by Nomura...

After multiple playthroughs, I think I found the problem I had with the demo.

The inability to lock on targets.

More often than not I find myself holding my shield up in random directions, failing to block at times. Same goes for parrying. Also, when your pawn grabs an enemy off screen and you start to swing your sword at nothing before landing a hit on the enemy, killing the smooth pace of battle.

I know that this is a design choice, and that the game focuses on group encounters and fast paced combat in which, at some instances, locking-on might prove disadvantageous. But it also gives the battle system a clumsy, messy feel to it, especially for someone such as myself who prefers to take on enemies one at a time.

I see no harm in adding something optional like a lock-on system. A win-win situation for those who prefer using it and for those who don't.

Regardless, I'm still excited for the retail version.
