I read on GAF that Sony has two months to extend the trademark. They could also let the name go and announce it with new one at E3, or any other big events throughout the year(s). This is not the first time that this happens with TLG though.

But for now... he's dead, Jim. :(

So. After seeing a few previews and impressions I spent 3 nights going through this last update seeing what the Scholar of the First Sin was about for myself, and at one point I got exhausted and I didn't wanted to keep going... I really miss the balance and how straightforward Demon's Soul was (or rather is) in comparison to DSII being as big and overdesigned as it is (even if it's good game and all that).

And well, Bloodborne is coming out soon, and with it that 'Miyazaki magic' as well so we'll see how that turns out.

I hate silent protagonists personally.  Especially in games today where everyone else is actually talking, but the game neglects to get a voice actor for their lead.

I've always saw this situation at a design level. By that I mean that all depends if it works in the context of the universe and narrative that is being presented, a the protagonist is gonna be a certain way in order for all that to work but at the same time an RPG doesn't necessarily lives or dies by its protagonist as much as what level the player can interact with the environment and characters around him/her.

Also totally willing to bet that this MC will end up being a 'shonen blank slate' just as much as the last two. :p

Real talk. Does anybody genuinely gets bothered by avatars and/or silent protagonist in RPGs nowdays? I always saw that kind complaint as shallow given the nature of the genre.

By these forums standards I do, which is a good thing.
Though, last time it happened CDFN was never heard from again.

Well, I don't blame him for doing that. :p

Ohh, another fight in an Uncharted thread.

You call that a fight?

Anyways. Here's the hub of Game Informer coverage UC4 for anyone interested. The videos were also uploaded on their YouTube page, which are also in the 'Features/Interviews' playlist, I mention it only if anyone likes better to see videos there than at the site.

The Making of Bloodborne – Part 1: Souls Evolved -- IGN, YouTube

FromSoft has definitely been treating Bloodborne as 'Demon's Souls Mk. II'. I've always liked Demon's more, so I'm totally cool with that.

Might not say anything in the trailer but we do see it "transform" and it is a party member, so it is probably the obligatory mascot party member.

My bad, I wasn't clear enough that I was referring more to if Morgana is gonna be the next "mascot with a voice" like Teddy is.

He clearly is the mascot of the party going by its design, and Atlus is most likely gonna make plushies out of him.

I would love to see Naughty Dog do a buddy cop Lethal Weapon type game next.

It's kinda annoying to think about that because Naughty Dog was born to bring a game like that to life. And also I've seen a few into the idea of a new Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter, but those are things that players/fans want and I highly doubt that either the studio or the publisher are interested in making them happen considering what the market likes nowadays.

@Dice: Taking my upfront attitude a little too personal there. (・_・ヾ

If that cat mascot is the new Teddy, I might have to cry though.

Hard to say when the cat/Morgana is hanging out there with the rest not saying anything in the trailer.

And well, Atlus released a trailer for 'Dancing All Night' too. Engrish aside, I'm impressed by how smooth the animation looks.

No.

What's so bothersome to you about the high school aspect of the series anyway? Tone and themes are directly related to the high school setting and how it plays out. Removing that is removing a crucial element that makes the series stand out from the rest. Not to mention that it has handled it better than most games of its region.

Persona 5 director (Katsura Hashino) discusses characters, themes, and development -- Gematsu

Is nice to see that they are as focused as they were back with P3 when it comes to the the overall tone and themes that they want to present in P5. And the trailer showing that the team is using of all their experience to move the series forward as much as possible it's reassuring.

I think it's just kinda overdone that IT. IS. ALWAYS. HIGH. SCHOOL. ALWAYS.

It's pointless (and, ironically, overdone in some places) to complaint about this aspect of the series. Get it over already.
