an example of what i wanted from this game is the resident evil remake.

REmake was developed by one of best teams Capcom had back in the day. Wanting something of that caliber and style out of SQEX, with the ways they handle their projects, is straight up delusional.

@Agent D.: Well, technically for as much as the novels in the XIII series are called to be "supplemental material" they are very much an integral part of the overall story. Sure each game has, in a manner of speaking, its own story, but in the long run they do come together into one single narrative by the end of it (with the novels, details in the datalogs, retcons and everything that happens in between being canonical). And yes we are all aware that are fans who don't like that or don't care about it at all. But this is one of those "it is what is it" cases. *shrug*

With the Compilation of FFVII on the other hand, that has always worked as a way to take liberties with the universe that was established in the original game's narrative. However, the remake is (for better or worse) the perfect moment for the team working on this to bring all of what they did in that compilation into the main story of VII. And with Kitase, Nojima and Nomura being involved that could potentially happen in order to bring a breath of fresh air into the story hardcore fans know by heart.

So why is everyone so mad?

In essence many fans of VII wanted out of the remake what Zelda fans got with Ocarina of Time 3D, but in high-definition and in a single release (or installment like Kitase calls it). Instead what's happening with this remake has parallels to what went down with StarCraft II by making the campaigns of each race its own release that would later form a trilogy unlike how the original StarCraft and, its expansion, Brood War offered the campaigns of all of the races in one package.

from Nova Crystallis:

Final fantasy XV's Cross-Link system – pictured above and featured prominently in Episode Duscae 2.0 with a yellow circle – has been overhauled, in a new message listed and unofficially translated over on the game's official forums in response to Japanese fan questions.

According to Game Design Section Manager Ken'ichi Shida, "The cross-link tempo has been improved from the demo, and execution is now more nimble. Ways of triggering the Cross-Link are different from the demo and have improved. The cross-link system was overhauled for the purposes of the finalized version's release.

In addition, "Slash Link" coordination, as well as a hitherto unannounced system, exists, and these are triggered under different conditions from Cross-Link. These link systems are the bread and butter of XV's friend co-op party battles, so the development team will be polishing these systems up until the moment that the finalized version of the game is released."

Final Fantasy XV is set to release in 2016 with a final release date scheduled to be revealed at an event in March.

What bugs me is that Square Enix could absolutely be more straightforward than they're being. They are offering up answers to questions, and I appreciate that, but c'mon! Just spell it out for us!

They already did that senpai:

The reunion at hand may bring joy.
It may bring fear.
But let us embrace WHATEVER it brings.

@Dice: Sweeping under the rug my question like that just makes me wonder why I even bother in the first place.

Is interesting seeing how the original chibi designs of the NPCs have transitioned into the realistic stylized designs of the remake. The clothing looking as good as it does is what gets me the most.

Then, experimenting with variables presented by established events or scenarios that take place inside and outside of battle are not present in RPGs of any kind and are not a form of linearity present in the genre at all?
53  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake on: December 06, 2015, 02:54:51 AM
I won't lie the corridor segment gave me bad deja vu for FF13's endless onslaught, so I hope that was just one instance.

You are sort of losing grip of the genre you are talking about by saying something like this.

Nobody ever liked those games until they were told they couldn't have them.

Sounds about right.

I'm afraid that for a fact that's S-Rank bullshit. Also, the topic exploded with DoAX3 the way it did mainly because it happened through official channels, and the traction this got was (even if you were aware of it or not) the result of a lot of other discussions that were building up over the span of a few years. It just got to the point in where it exploded with the one series that has this "stigma" (enfasis on quotation marks) because of its fanservice.

Jim Sterling tackles the evil SJWs who prevented DoAX from coming here with grace and savvy.

There's no a single thing he says in the video that's relevant or important to the topic he is supposedly talking about there. Hell, if anything he with this video was trying to cover his private parts after being one of the so called "journalist" that got butt blasted with the entire affair that transpired with DoAX3. That said I have no idea why the hell people give attention to this guy anymore. He used to be on point a long time ago, but for a while to say the least he kinda totally lost the perspective he had to be on point.

Of all the builds I've seen and gone through in that fight this is the first time I see someone using Yuna's garb. Is possible to finish that fight faster, but that was pretty good.

Season 2 of 00 is better than season 1, so you could keep trucking that one.

Else, jump straight to Iron-Blood Orphans. You're not missing anything by ignoring AGE and Build Fighters.
Build Fighter is more Beyblade (Bayblade?) than Gundam.

I'll check Iron-Blood Orphans for a couple of episodes and see if I stick with it then. I might get back into 00 and do a long session later. Though, I don't even remember at one point I dropped the series so I'll have to start all over again with that one.
59  Media / General Games / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: November 26, 2015, 01:20:29 AM

Well. That was dumb.

Um, as far as I can tell DoAX barely pissed off them SJWs to begin with, nor did the game actually generate much heat/press either (there are more articles/responses to the Play Asia Twitter thing than there was real press about the game to begin with).

The party never seems to be over in regards of fanservice being the devil in the West so I won't jump into conclusions of any of kind. I will say that I did see feelings of SJWs hurt over this though.

Their Twitter page has been very proud of seeing how many followers they get from this fiasco...

Tweets calling out SJWs while being weaponized with smug anime girls generating this kind of traction isn't by definition a fiasco.

I got the 360 version of the original release of DoA5 a few years back. That's $25 I'll never see again.

Those $25 should have gone to Tekken Tag 2. I don't know what cosmic miracle happened for you to get Dead or Alive 5... you are one of the last I could imagine to go after DoA and enjoy it.
