Heh. That reminds me of the walls of text I read about XIII when virtually everyone on blogs and forums were trying to make sense of their childhood thinking back as to why they liked FF in the first place. These two pieces are the most impressive in terms of the effort and raw emotion that were put into them.

Maxx, I hope that by the end of this you don't feel like you wasted your time with a game you have some personal problems, or whatever.

Years ago I almost went through the same with VIII and X. I never got around to finish either of them because as much as I tried to genuinely like those two games, they were simply not for me when all was said and done.

The whole noise with the XIII series and SQEX is settled on my end. And the most I get out of what SQEX does nowadays is seeing their line of Play Arts Kai figures. I feel that I got enough of their games and fans for a while.

It didn't lose anything significant going by the designs of Shinkawa. The likeness to the actor or actress of almost any major character in MGSV goes to be at best is an approximation, the character itself has to be his own.

MGR:R is now available for Mac users on Steam. The port was made by 'TransGaming Inc.', never heard of them before.

Is hard not to sound like an asshole when I read your stuff where I barely agree or see half of the stuff you do.

Interested to see how surly your disposition turns once you have to start dealing with all the bullshit Eidolon fights.

I'm just talking for me here, but excluding Vanille's Eidolon, all of those fights are quite manageable. There's much more difficult and precise stuff I've had to do in other games in comparison.

Still too soon to say. But I feel this soundtrack is gonna be just as good as the ones from Sigma Harmonics and Unlimited SaGa.

In comparison, this is way better than the Nintendo alt. costumes in FF4 and later Bayo 2 ended up doing better by having the good sense of integrating elements of the character you are dressing as into to the gameplay as well. In FF4, as I've seen, that was only fanservice.

Sure, in part this is that too (not like it's a big deal anyway), but this also is more significant content for the game in the long run. And as small this portion might be as an extra, they are at least putting some level of work into it.

The port is in good hands with HexaDrive.

Looks like a proper update but oh god why is the camera so zoomed in.

The camera seems more approaching than in Type-0. Closer to the character's POV.

Tabata: The camera's position is closer to the character's back than it was before. So you could say the presence has increased. When you play the game on the PSP, the screen is about 20-30 centimeters away, but when you play it on the big screen you are separated to a certain extent, so we changed the way it is viewed.

I feel like changing the POV influences the gameplay, how was that regulated?

Tabata: Playing Type-0 on the small screen, the play style becomes limited to what is within the character's field of vision. As a game we basically made it so everything occurred within the character's field of vision. Even though there were enemies who could shoot at you from afar, it didn't really feel like you were being attacked. But in Type-0 HD, we've changed it so that all the elements on the screen are related to the game. However we have regulated it so the gameplay still feels the same as Type-0.

FF does the weirdest things to people...

Either way, everyone that has played Square's games have to go on some kind of pilgrimage at some point, so better let Maxx alone and get this one out of his system.

The popping in and out of the terrain is actually something I've thought about before for a JRPG. Needless to say, I like it.

Gone Gold! -- Vine

System Requirements for each platform (from Bethblog):

Recommended PC System Specifications

64-bit Windows 7/Windows 8
i7 with four plus cores
50 GB of hard drive space*
GeForce GTX 670 or equivalent with 4GBs of VRAM
High Speed Internet Connection
Steam account and activation

*It's worth noting that the 50 GB of space required is for the PC install. When the installation is complete, the game will take up ~41 GB of HDD space.

Note: We do not have a list of minimum requirements for the game. If you're trying to play with a rig with settings below these requirements (you should plan to have 4 GBs of VRAM regardless), we cannot guarantee optimal performance.

Install sizes for the Console Versions

Xbox One 40 GB HDD Space
PlayStation 4 40 GB HDD Space
PlayStation 3 7 GB HDD Space
Xbox 360 7 GB

Note: The Evil Within requires a mandatory install to the Xbox 360's HDD or a USB 2.0 (or higher) flash drive.
