@Caine: No. VIII has been one of the three most disliked games in the main series for years. That's of course in terms of its own fanbase. But then again, the fanbase of FF is as much of a mess of views and recontextualized arguments as the one that Zelda has.

If anybody likes it, that's fine. And contrary to popular belief I'm hardly enough of a fan of most of the games FF has, inside and outside of the main series, to care personally. Much of the joy and good memories I did got out of VIII was from its soundtrack and art direction. The same goes for many of others FFs on my end.

Thanks to those who replied to my question. I've reconsidered since then in getting Bloodborne anyway. Missing out on this would be a waste given for how long I waited for it.

That said, now I gotta see when I can get my hands on a copy.

My experience with Dark Souls is very limited but it leads me to believe that this game would be more enjoyable alongside other less stressful and dark titles.

I don't dedicate time to multiple games at a time because that breaks the overall feeling of the game for me by shuffling one game with the other around. But going to Type-0 and Mass Effect 2 to Bloodborne sounds pretty abrupt to me. If you can handled it then go for it, but like with Souls is for the best to focus on it as much as you can to get the most out of it (I said that from my personal experience with the series).

Deep Down management producer discusses concept, long-term approach -- Gematsu

Instead of quoting a small tease of the article I recommend reading the whole thing.

From what I've gathered in the last few months since I stopped updating the thread is that the project has been growing much more of what it was originally anticipated and it's slowly taking form, so all of those delays that the game has had seem to have been put to good use.

For the big MGS fans, how do you feel that Konami vows to continue the series after Kojima leaves?

I give my first thoughts on this news here. But to expand on that, how I feel about the continuation of the series without Kojima and KojiPro's involvement is that is most likely gonna be as awkward as it was for every other IP from Konami was in the past, when key members of their staff leave or go to do something else inside or outside of the company (Suikoden, Silent Hill and Castlevania were all heavenly affected by this).

That being said, there's still a lot of details we don't know and much less how is that this situation is gonna develop over time.

Are you happy there will be more MGS or are you let down that they'll never wrap it up and a convoluted story will go on forever?

Given how MGS4 already ended the timeline and overall story of the main series in the most definitive way possible, the only thing left for MGSV: TPP to do is (like Kojima said) close the loop on the saga.

Various aspect of the series should come together with TPP considering the place it takes within the series. But more than just that, one should never try understand the main series only in terms if it's narrative and continuity are consistent. The creative intention of Kojima's games (the Boktai series being maybe an exception) has always been to make the player read between the lines and think of the overall theme(s) the game in question presents.

Now, regarding the "new Metal Gear" I feel that is gonna be a reboot. Handing the IP to new devs of a series that has almost 30 years of work put into it might be too much responsibility to maintain. I am happy about it? Well... with how the potential successor of Kojima died sadly of cancer a few years ago (Project Itoh/Satoshi Ito) this outcome was expected to happen at some point. How it has happened however it hasn't pleasant to see at all. Lastly, I do wonder what the "power struggle" is actually about.

EDIT: Searched for info to remind myself if Boktai was directed or not by Kojima just to be sure. And he was a producer for all the 4 games that series got.

We actually don't have a review of the original release! That's mostly my fault, since I never had a chance to cover it.

However, we're going to have a very-close-to-day-one review of the HD soundtrack. Woo!

I'll check it out once it's posted.

Sorry, one last thing. FUCK MOOGLES NOW. Ever since XIII-2 and Serah's talking floating nerdrat thing,moogles have become the worst thing in FF. They make me hate everything.

Too bad speech bubbles are not much of a viable thing for FF anymore. Not that I miss them much, but I'm alright for the most part with the voice acting the series has had.

VI and IX with voice acting would be really weird, I think... heh.

The soundtrack hasn't been reviewed yet on the site?

I seriously wish this had been a focused title instead of being the offshoot it is, it probabaly would have gotten much better treatment, but as it stands this game beats the XIII series by leaps and bounds in my opinion and is probably my best liked game since at least X-2 ( I really enjoyed X-2 as a game, even if it was Super Barbie dress up adventure).

X-2 has too many Magical Girl and Japanese Idols elements and themes going on to be assimilated with Barbie. Besides, Barbie is the manufactured idealization of the woman of the 1950/60's. That doesn't have anything to do with X-2 (I do get the point you are making regardless, but I wanted to point this out).

Kojima is basically Konami's life support. He needs to leave the company so that they can pass away in peace.

They run more businesses than just the one of video games. And as much as a bullet to the heart this news are, hardcore Metal Gear fans (myself included) knew that this was gonna happen someday for a very, very long time. The shock however comes from how soon it happened given the bright future KojiPro has shown to have.

But either way, whatever Kojima and what might remain of KojiPro goes I'll follow them just like I've done when Shinji Mikami, Hideki Kamiya, etc. leave Capcom.

Oh, of course not.

I was talking in a general sense. It was very clear. I don't know how you can get what I said previously to you backwards. ~_~

It only matters in respect to our discussion in that it illustrates my point. That is, a name implies something and sets a standard of expectations be it right or wrong.  Type-0 delivers on the Final Fantasy name IMO.

Yes in that respect matters, but I rather stick to facts than "what if..." scenarios when it comes to stuff like that.

Regarding Type-0. Is nice that people is into it, and I've known for a while is decent and all that, but like with X/X-2 Remaster I'm skipping this. And also I don't know if I end up getting XV when it comes out. In the meantime however, REvelations 2 came out and I'm gonna be busy with that soon hopefully along with keeping the struggle going in The Evil Within.

Now lets imagine for a moment FFXIII was called "Lightning Strikes", do you really think the number of complaints as to the nature of games content would have been so great?

This has been brought up many times before. We all here know the answer and it doesn't matter. Is well-documented why XIII is the way it is, everybody did the noise they had to make online about it, supplemental material was fan translated and not much later XIV 1.0 messed up SQEX business enough to cancel projects and say that XIV 'greatly damaged/tarnished' the series.

Fun times all around.
