I never played Unlimited SaGa, but I have heard some people say that the game is just misunderstood- that if the play mechanics were better explained then the game would be at least sorta kinda cool.  What say you folks?

Long story short is that Unlimited didn't had the same luck Demon's Souls had in finding a sizeable devoted audience around the world.

It doesn't help either that much of what makes SaGa SaGa goes against virtually everything SQEX's audience search in their games. If Mana is FF's sister and Bravely Default is FF's little kid, then SaGa is like, the lost (eccentric) brother.

Also, I recommend reading this article:

@Maxx: Never heard of Romancing SaGa: Minstrel's Song and Emperors SaGa? They came out after Unlimited.

King "is a man of few words"... like "LOCK AND LOAD" *BANGBANGBANGBANG*

He's obviously the successor of Dante Sparda.

to be fair if this wasn't a mainline FF game i wouldnt care. and i wonder if i'm gonna have to endure a generation of 15, 15-2, 15-3

You don't have to endure anything really, but well, here you go.

I view Hellsing Ultimate was about as fun to watch as Afro Samurai.

All anime has to be a life changing experience, right?

@Mickeymac92: I don't see it. I mean, I get what you are saying but I mainly see Luffy doing cosplay. *shrug*

...they look pretty close to each other.

For all the nitpicking that has been going on for years, I'm sure XV gonna sell well regardless.

Alisha is gonna get really mad when she sees the 'Greatest Hits' logo on the box. Haha.

As much as it hurts me to say this, the voice of the big guy in XV actually sounds like an even more deplorable meathead douchebag than Snow was.  And I'm not sure that's even possible.

You are confusing your personal dislike for the character for what the character actually is within the narrative of XIII.

It's cool though. I didn't get his character or motivations clearly until like, my 3rd playthrough.

The End of Evangelion on high-definition?



Damn.

Finally finished up Hellsing Ultimate for reals this time. A far better ending spot than episode 8. Not much to say about this beyond it being a shallow as all hell but entertaining ride, but that's what it was.

You might call it shallow but Hellsing Ultimate is some of the most genuine fun one can have with anime. And really, I'm not a guy that can tell you that likes that many anime series or adaptations since I prefer comics and manga much more.

Too bad, it's for the Vita ("Stop making me buy things for a dead system Squeenix!").

This like the same situation when Type-0 HD was announced but backwards.

Ice queen is the weirdest thing I've seen Lightning being called. And is mostly weird to me since I know her background story fairly well, and she's not one. If anything she can be a bit dense with her being as determined as she is, but an ice queen? No.

Besides, for all you know this game selling well could simply tell Square Enix that they can coast by with HD remakes of all their last-gen games. As much as I'd go for an FF12-HD, I'd rather them continue working on moving into the future then reminding everyone of the past.

In a way this is almost as it was in the DS and PSP days.

i hope this game outsells ff15

Are you serious?

Yes. She has been going on with that for a while now.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Collector's Edition Announced -- All Games Beta

All the info and links to official sources about the CE (for America and Europe) are in the link above.

Regarding the manga, it's obvious that's gonna be this one but I'm not sure if it's gonna include the "Reaper of the Icy Blade" manga or not.

The manga series works almost the same way the novels of the XIII series did by being completely optional material but it expands what's presented in the main game. Type-0 has two novels too, but all that I know is that they are merely adaptations of the narrative of the game.

...and yeah, that would be it. With this, REvelations 2 and Bloodborne March should be a pretty busy month for some.

Tomara said exactly what I was gonna say. Thanks!

I'll just add that this whole situation was a mix of the two points Tomara mentioned. The reveal of a brand new character in a renowned fighting game series is a big deal, and the more noise it makes, the better. Harada more than anything handled all the feedback he saw in his favor.
