Make a new Front Mission that isnt a FPS

That franchise is over as far as I know. Specially after Front Mission Evolved.

or another quality SRPG like Tactics Ogre.

Tactics Ogre was partially able to become a reality because it had people from the original staff of the Super Famicom version working on it. And without putting that talent with the same team I kinda doubt we will see another SRPG like that for a while. Though, I would like to be wrong.

(i wonder if the recent remake made a profit?)

Concentrate on good gameplay and story and dont spend a fortune on graphics/cut scenes.

I can't help feeling in recent years they've been going for massively bloated (and expensive) games which havent been worth the effort.

"1998. One year ago, Final Fantasy VII singlehandedly transformed video games forever and ushered in the Golden Age of Square. SquareSoft was now officially a Big Deal. A very Big Deal. Super Mario RPG, Chrono Trigger, and Final Fantasy VI had all been hits, but Final Fantasy VII was a phenomenon. Quite Possibly the Greatest Game Ever Made. Afterwards, Square had just about cemented its reputation as Quite Possibly the Greatest Video Game Designers Ever with a string of successful titles that included Final Fantasy Tactics, Parasite Eve, Einhander, and Bushido Blade. It was like they were incapable of making games people didn't love. I saw people gathered around an Ehrgeiz cabinet at my local arcade, for god's sake. Square was at the top of its game. Its popularity - and profits - had never been higher.

But there was one small issue.

Final Fantasy VIII. There was no avoiding it. It had to happen. Square was now faced with the unenviable task of producing a sequel that could live up to and surpass Quite Possibly the Greatest Game Ever Made."
-- Final Fantasy VIII: A series discovers its crack pipe

You see the damage that one game did to the franchise? Even to this day you see the remains of that with Final Fantasy XIII having references to Final Fantasy VII and the main character shamelessly being a "female Cloud Strife". Is nice to know that (at least how Nomura says) they are putting their efforts in new projects instead of being stuck in their golden age.

We'll see how that goes. *cross fingers*

Dengeki PlayStation Vol.518 cover (bigger version).

Is pretty much the same as the one from last year of Final Fantasy Type-0.

After watching this and that Ideon vid you posted (grusome; the corpse and the man-eating fish and the missle to the head kid were probably the two best).... old anime scare me now.

Have you read about Yoshiyuki Tomino (creator of Gundam, Ideon, etc) in TV Tropes?

"By directing combat and war pieces, I could experience catharsis and successfully avoid committing a murder in real life. In this sense, I'm really grateful for that because I was conscious that I had such homicidal traits, to be honest."
— Yoshiyuki Tomino, about his "Kill 'Em All" reputation."

Dude has problems.

Coolest Iron Man outfit ever.  Seriously -- no, it's not cardboard made.

However, it does give that 13-3 set-up.  But it's full of the emotional speeches that tend to run-on and are worth next to nothing unless you're really invested into the characters/plot.

So this DLC is for me then. ~.~

Glad to know that. I never imagine that I was gonna get so invested in the universe of XIII with the sequel.

I suppose that Soul Hackers is gonna get an optional arrange soundtrack like the Persona games for PSP right? The original soundtrack has hold up the test of time so I'm curious to see what they can do with it.

All the people who made those games have left.

Yeah, I know. Most of the people that worked on game companies that did the classics that everybody loved in the '90s not only on SquareSoft but Capcom and others Japanese game companies have either disappeared from the face of the earth, went to make iOS games, work as freelancer or they do something completly different.

Lost Planet 3 is being made by Spark Unlimited and they had only make 3 games that nobody really cares about. Not that I'm saying that as something bad but, that's how things are for what I've seen.

If the new opening has J-pop I'm gonna kick a baby in the balls.

^No kidding. Is beyond me how Square Enix doesn't (or can't) put together something with the same quality as FFVI, IX, Vargrant Story or Chrono Cross. At least FFXIII-2 was fun and for what I've read FFType-0 and TWEWY weren't bad either, so that's something.

All FFVII really needs is a fresh localization on par with more recent games. With the way people expect an FFVII remake though I think SE are afraid to do anything beyond providing the original as a PSN download.

They should like, retranslate the original and sell it for $20, right? :p
