Vaguest announcement ever.

Sure, maybe I'm just cynical.

BTW, Shenmue 3 Kickstarter already over $2.5 million (with a $2 million goal) in less than a day.

NEW NIER



Have to say I didn't expect that.  Still I'm not quite sure what to think of it.  Gameplay wasn't really Nier's forte and Platinum will almost certainly do better in that regard.  But on the other hand, the kind of storytelling that made Nier so special in the first place isn't really Platinum's forte.  And as much as I loved Nier, I never really felt like it needed a sequel.

Oh also having just watched the trailer for real, FFVII didn't look particularly good from a technically standpoint

Going to have to disagree with you right there.  In 1997 FFVII was pretty amazing from a technical standpoint.

So do people think the battle system will be even kinda-sorta ATB-like?  Or will they be going full ARPG.

I really hope they stick to something more turn-based but for a project this high profile I have a hard time believing that they will.

So there's an option for a physical PC version - but no console version. Let that fucking game burn.

It's a Kickstarter campaign.  Do you know how difficult it is to secure the rights to make a physical copy of a console game before that game has even started production if you're not some multi-billion dollar publisher?  Heck even with digital copies there's still an approval process to go through and in the early days of the Kickstarter boom they couldn't even promise digital copies of console games either.  The console makers did recognize this problem and make things easier for Kickstarter projects eventually, though.  Even so there's still a lot of red tape to go through.

This actually does not mean there will never be a physical copy for consoles.  I'd say it's pretty likely there will be at some point.  Just not through Kickstater.  If that's so important for you then wait until the game is out and buy it.

Also, The Last of Us sucked, with one of the worst endings in modern gaming - even worse than Mass Effect 3.

Nice troll.

Uncharted 4 looks...like an Uncharted game.  Can't really say I was blown away by it or anything, but it's Naughty Dog so it will probably be fun.

I don't know, after the slower paced but more thoughtful, deliberate, intense, and deadly combat of The Last of Us it almost feels like a shame to go back to Uncharted.  Sure I realize they're going for different styles.  Uncharted is basically a playable Hollywood action movie and it does that well.  But some of that stuff was so over-the-top you have to wonder how are they even still alive.

That might be the best car chase in a videogame though.

You can't expect them to hit it out of the park with every announcement.

...speaking of which, Disney Infinity + Star Wars...whee...

And that whole Call of Duty thing was probably important for the platform given the strength of that brand.  But personally?  I could not give fewer fucks.

Have to wonder if it's going to break some kickstarter records.

Kickstarter.com being DDOSed by Shenmue lovers or something.  I can't even get the page to load.

The Last Guardian: Actual gameplay.  Basically it looks like a puzzle platformer with the gimmick of being able to order around a giant friendly monster.  And it looks gorgeous.  Do I think it's going to redefine gaming or anything like that?  No.  Do I want to play it?  Yes.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Well since you asked...

Edit: Oh god, I was doing just fine when I left the oral surgeon but now they painkillers they gave me there are starting to wear off.  It hurts, it hurts!!

Off to have screws put in my mouth!

That's the thing, though: I don't actually think they're below average in this regard.  I think they're just average.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Yuri couples are almost never done well. FFXIII-1 was ironically the closest I've seen it get, and that's more due to just how glossed over everything was and how Fang seems to have been written as a male character before getting swapped or something, and its still not that good either. Also Hyouka only really made it to the half way point of its story before its time in the sun was up and KyoAmi dumped it in the same bin as FMP and pretty much everything else they've done outside of maybe K-ON and maybe one or two other shows. They're really fucking bad about adopting full series into anime.

That's not really a KyoAni problem, that's the way the whole industry works.  They want to adapt things while they're popular, meaning while they're still ongoing.  Waiting until a manga/novel-series/whatever is completely finished before doing an anime would probably mean a lot more complete stories but it wouldn't be striking while the iron is hot, so to speak.  But if a show isn't popular enough it's never going to get a season 2 to finish things later.  So there are tons of shows either with either no real ending or a rushed anime-original (and usually bad) ending.

I'm not endorsing it, but it seems weird to blame KyoAni for then when basically the entire industry does the exact same thing.
