Well, the DLC for Dark Souls II was delayed for next week. In the meantime I could prepare a new character and unlock the remaining trophies.

The track on the official site sounds like Hamauzu going back to compose for Sigma Harmonics. IMO, one his best works.

@glassjawsh: All of this is only 'criticism that goes in circles'. VIII, X-2, Advent Children and XII have been talked about in the same way before. Nothing new for FF.

Isn't FFXV a rebranding of Versus XIII, meaning more Fabula what's its face Crystal something universe?
Then again, it's not a direct sequel so it (and it inevitable spinoffs) probably shouldn't count.

I choosed to get this out from Wikipedia because I rather not waste time explaining each of the series FNC has at this point:

"A recurring race in the games are god-like beings created by Pulse and Lindzei to act as their servants in the mortal world. In the original mythos and XIII, the demigods are called fal'Cie. They take the form of crystal-powered mechanical beings in the XIII games. In the universe of Type-0, they are both semi-sentient crystals and humanoid beings living among the people. The fal'Cie have the ability to choose humans, imbue them with magical powers and assign them a task to complete either willingly or unwillingly. XIII and Type-0 refer to these people as l'Cie and the task given to them as a "Focus". In the XIII universe, there are two possible outcomes for l'Cie: once their Focus is fulfilled, they can go into 'crystal stasis', transforming into a crystal statue, and gain eternal life, but if they fail they become mindless crystalline monsters called Cie'th. In Type-0, l'Cie are branded by the crystal of their country, and given great power to fulfill their assigned Focus. Despite being given eternal youth, l'Cie can lose their memories and eventually forget their Focus. The crystals also erase the memories of the dead from the population to prevent them being held back by regrets. In XV, they are humans who have suffered a near-death experience and received magical powers from the Unseen Realm."

I know quite a few people enjoy xiii, no matter how much I felt that it was a poor title. But I am thoroughly scared that any more sales of it will give SE the idea to try a new sequel....this time starring Snow...the horror.

After LR and the last novel (Final Fantasy XIII: Reminiscence -tracer of memories-) that entire story was finished in a definite manner. As far as I'm aware of, not even by moving around stuff from the lore of XIII you can make another dramatic story work in that universe like Nojima did with the novel and audio drama from last year that he wrote for FFX.

@Klyde Chroma: Thanks for replying, Klyde. :)

I was really curious to hear your point of view more clearly. And we do understand, see and feel Third-person action differently, mostly because our affinities to this types of games is very different.

The closest a Third-person shooter has gotten to be perfect for me is, like I mentioned before, with Vanquish; It has an Arcade feeling, Sam is very flexible in terms of the movement you are able to do with him, the game actively wants you to be moving and using cover to recharge rather than to hide, QTEs are short and intense in the context they are presented, and lastly the gunplay feels great.

It's an awesome game that I can play over and over again. If had to give a quick example of how the game feels overall it would like this: RE4 + Bullet Hell + a bit of Gears and Halo.

Final Fantasy XV director talks development, open world, combat, demo, and more -- Gematsu

After reading this in the morning I can tell that Tabata as the director knows what he's doing and also knows the type of FF that needs to be done out of this process, even though in development a lot of things can happen a long the way.

For all the prejudices, insecurities and complaints fans have, I'm slowly getting interested again thanks to how Tabata communicates that XV in the last few years has been a game (or rather a project) with clear goals in mind. That's not something that in general FFXII, XIII and XIV (1.0 mostly) had in their development time even considering the tons of work it was put into each of them.

That being said, I'm not a believer entirely in XV just yet. They still have to pull off a tangible product that has all of the ideas and concepts they have talked about and shown previously. Is like Tabata said;

"If we don't do something that people think is amazing, it's meaningless," Tabata said. "If we don't do something that's challenging, it's also meaningless."


@Alisha: *cough*

Thats the thing, I was hoping for either more action oriented gameplay or some genuine fright. I don't feel it was delivering on EITHER front. I can think of quite a few games I would place well ahead of RE6 to quench my thirst for action.


Can you be more specific in your point of RE6 not being a good action game, please? We clearly didn't play the same game, that or understand action differently.

As a Third-person shooter RE6 is close to stuff like the Gears series and Uncharted 2. Is not touching Vanquish, but there are elements from Vanquish on RE6, like sliding for example, and the game (purely from a fun factor) is better for it.

Screenshots (Environments): #1 / #2 / #3


OP updated; Changed the standard Japanese official site with the special site again since it was updated to a proper poromotional page now.*

That video is not applicable to the current version of RE6. Capcom did this to QTEs after taking feedback. Because, you now, as a company they care about their product and stuff.

You can check other changes made to RE6 in the same page.*
55  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: September 20, 2014, 07:41:38 PM
The game is stupid but fun.

I'd say it's excessive rather than stupid. And that's okay. Modern RE is fun in the same sense an action movie from the 80's is.

*Resident Evil 6 impressions*

From a gameplay perspective, RE6 wants you to play it with an Arcade mentality. Is very different seeing someone who give himself the time to master the game to someone who has personal problems with the design of the game, and in a way, this (to give a quick example) is the same kind of problem some have with the Souls series.

The learning curve is awkward, but beneath that there's a decent game "hidden".

Any other horrific suggestions are welcome.


If I never played the very first ps1 silent hill, can I jump in on the HD collection comfortably or will I be lost?

Don't bother with the "HD" collection of Silent Hill. They did a terrible job with it.

Famitsu Interview -- NeoGAF

I recommend everyone to read this.


Glad they showed a bit more of the engine.

Also, it sounds like an arrangement of "Prelude" from VII playing there at 22:36.

Can't we just get Platinum to make it at this point? It worked for MGR:Revengeance.

In that case, we would end up (hypothetically) with something closer to Ys than FF.

Anyone still interested?

With not much going on TGS after the first day (for now), I've gone through some comparisons fans have made with screenshots. And it's interesting to see the advancements SQEX have made with XV thanks to the Luminous Engine.

(original image)

Graphically since the trailer at E3 from last year the game does look better overall. But there's still clearly work to do.

That said, It has been hard for me to find useful information about the engine itself. I'd like to read more than what was been already said in most gaming blogs about the engine since I'm interested in these sort of things.

My next Diablo III toon will officially be named Roadtrip Turtle


@_@ I can't.
60  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bloodborne on: September 19, 2014, 12:48:22 AM
Yeah. There are horror games out there (indie or not) that would kill to have half of the art direction Bloodborne has.
