It's either in limbo or secretly cancelled in favor of more Hatsune Miku games.

They fucked up the physics.  Everything is absolutely the same as before, but when you're on a colossi or trying to climb it, the Hero tends to lose balance super easily when they sway about.  You'll keep your footing but waste a lot of time stumbling about.  It's not that bad during the main game nor game breaking, but it will basically require you to hunt for lizards (eating them ups the in-game Grip Meter) for some of the harder fights but it makes the game INCREDIBLY frustrating for Time Attacks that you have to really pull your best tricks and pray for a good spot of luck.

Really? I thought you were going to talk about the framerate or any other technical aspects, but not how they rebalanced a part of the game to something you aren't particulary fond of.

For what's worth however I'll throw my 2 cents; I've played both versions of SotC. And the PS3 version is a clear improvement over the original release. More it could be done to make SotC a smoother experience but that would be messing around too much with the original game.

I forget, were these the devs that had been making that bizarre Megaman X MMO a few years back?

A quick search in Google says that it was a joint project between Capcom and Neowiz Games.

The Legend of FalcoMaster3000 -- Super Smash Bros. University, YouTube

"A masked vigilante showed up at a smash bros meetup with a ski mask and sunglasses. He didn't say a word for 9 entire hours, beat everyone there and won the bracket, gave a thumbs up and left without saying a word. When asked what to enter him as in the tournament he got a pen and wrote "Falcomaster3000".

None of us can figure out who it was. His physical characteristics don't match anyone with that skill in the region. I don't think we'll ever see him again."

With big franchises, assumptions and expectations is what leads people to disappointment in my experience.

Just try to inform yourself the best you can.

I'm sure Squeenix heard the complaints about FF13's lack of variety and have since gone full to avoid such criticism again.

They put that feedback to use in XIII-2 and again with LR they went as far as they could go with the exploration. Considering with the hardware they were working with and the time they had on development for the project (1 year and a half), they were pretty clever finding a lot solutions that would make LR a counterpoint directly to XIII as a game. And that's without mentioning all efforts SQEX did re-launching XIV.

XIV alone in the long run could have had a big negative impact for the franchise and SQEX that XIII never really presented. Is not for nothing that they had to re-evaluate aspects within the company and the project itself to make ARR the game best it could be.

So that is just one small area? If so that's not so bad, I didn't see the map so I was just going by what I saw in that video that was posted on here and noticed though they ran around a big area it seemed like nothing much was going on. But that also might be because nothing was added or things don't happen till a mission is there. I know that sounds kind of ignorant of me because if I really looked I could probably find out a lot more about the game but I also feel if they are putting out videos of stuff shouldn't they try to make it a little more interesting hehe.

"The presentation focused on one part of the region and there's more to explore in the demo. Most of the events and enemies were removed to show the environments in the field trailer." -- SQUARE PORTAL

Everything in the walkthrough of last month is still a work in progress, obviously.

Well, I don't know what the content of the dialogue will be, of course, but the dialogue from the trailers seemed to be quite good and better-written/more natural than the XIII series in my opinion. I'm optimistic about the story based on what we've seen so far.


You know, I was thinking, if Kingdom Hearts fans say that about Daisuke Watanabe's work on the XIII series as a writer, then I have all the right in the world to laugh at the... irony? I think that's the word I'm searching for.

Also I'm not gonna discuss dialogue's preferences on FF or RPGs in general. I don't want to be a part of that.

I've talked about the worries I've had with the scriptwriter more than a few times before here. Nojima is a hit or miss writer, but if he can make decent worldbuilding with some of the FNC mythos I think most people will be fine.

In any case, aside from me enjoying my FNC mythos, I've been mainly interested in the technical side of XV for the longest time so is great seeing them doing tech videos and giving some details here and there in the last few months.

And yeah, Nomura was basically demoted so hard that he's pretty much one of the few major names still working on KH3 (most of the key players of the KH team have left the building at this point). Its pretty much only a matter of time before he ends up going freelance at this point, because he's officially 'blown it'.

Are you a fly that likes to visit the offices of SQEX Japan?

All that was made known to the public was that Nomura is working on Kingdom Hearts III with a vengeance.

If he said 'kawaisou' in the interview, then yeah he did I guess.

Though, I wonder in what context he said it while he was busy with the interview. Translations shenanigans and all that you know.

I want Ubisoft to do well; truly I'd kill to see another Prince of Persia and see more "art projects" like Child of Light.

More UbiArt Framework games pls.

All the 6 games that have been made at Ubisoft Montpellier and Montreal with that engine have been some of the best stuff they has released in the last few years. There also seem to be plans for a Prince of Persia to be made with the engine, but who knows.
