Just so you know, Dice. I wasn't talking in defense of the XIII series.

4-5 hours in and I can certainly say this game "feels" like a "Final Fantasy" in a way that XIII through XIII-3 did not.

Whatever does that mean anyway?

I've seen people arguing that FF hasn't feel like FF since between FFVII-XII. Though, IX was very much a tribute from everything that came before it. That said, anything after a certain point takes and builds from concepts of what is associated with the series rather than the definition that Sakaguchi give to FF years ago, but that same definition is completely different by how the series is understood by certain, if not most, fans and also how the projects are handled with getting bigger and bigger in production with each project.

Lately I've been having my doubts in getting Bloodborne, and the launch trailer makes the game look extremly creppy and gory. ;w;

Now because of this I want to ask if you guys, in general, have had or have problems with extreme violence in media or does other things bother you more?

Bloodborne's online features fully detailed -- Gematsu

These are the more relevant points;

Chalice Dungeon

"Chalice Dungeons are split into two types: Normal and randomly generated. Both can be played offline and online, but random ones require connecting to the internet once in order to connect to a server and download data. Players' Chalice Dungeons can be publicly accessible and shared online."

PlayStation Plus

"Sony clarifies that PlayStation Plus is required for co-op and player-versus-player, but not required for downloading updates and getting the necessary data to generate a Chalice Dungeon."

It seems to me that Dark Souls was only just overlapping the RPG border in the hypothetical Venn diagram. In my eyes, it's the balance between skill and stats that determines whether something is really an RPG. E.g in Dark Souls you can in principle beat most bosses without ever levelling up. In a Tales game, despite having action-based combat, you can't.

There are a number of RPGs in which (if you are hardcore enough) you can go do an specific battle or even go through the game with low stats. Though, depending on the battle system and overall design 'X RPG' has, the player by default is going to require somewhat of a different mentality to pull that off.

On my list of series that turned into action games or my desire not to have this series become full on action?
We've already got plenty of 3rd person action RPGs. This series excels at being all about weighting rather than speed.

Bloodborne is taking more of the fluidity of action games with what has been already established, not straight-up becoming an action game. And when you have heavy RPG elements regulating the Action aspect of the game, is virtually impossible to make a pure action game. Unless the RPG stuff is minimal and the action is all about what level of control the player has of his/her character (like in DMC3 or 4 to give a quick example).

Also, I know very well that deviation and change scares a certain group of fans, but stagnation is way worse in the long run. At the same time, you can't possibly please everybody when a certain audience have standards and expectations getting in the way.

Project Itoh posthumously explains why Metal Gear Rising destroys Raiden's character

For quite a while now my thoughts on Rising, Raiden and its place in the series are very different to what they were back when it came out. Which is summarized very well on the link above.

And that being said, MGR is still one of Platinum's best games overall that could benefit greatly from a sequel with a decent budget, development time and keeping the collaboration going with KP like they did with Revengeance (though that last one goes without saying).

Seriously, we're doing the whole "This is my last Metal Gear" again?

Is much more important to take notice of Kojima's comment on 'closing the loop of the saga with TTP' than focusing on the "is this your last Metal Gear?" question.

Maybe not an attack, but it sure as hell was rude, especially since he was clearly at least half-joking...

*sigh* ~_~

Oh god here comes Square Enix's personal white knight, fighting the evils of opinions and observations that paint his company in anything less than a pearly white luster.

Seriously, Ygg, do you ever just stop and ask yourself if what SE is paying you is enough to attack people for thinking negatively about SE? It's pretty infuriating to have to read a personal attack every time someone says SE isn't the greatest thing since sliced bread

You make no sense.

A shame that you see my message as an attack though. Is always the same story here anyway.

For fucks sake how many more fucking games need to be redone before we get FFXV?

Go buy some patience and chill out.

The FFXIII trilogy also has Type-0 (because unfortunately Type-0's plot ties into the XIII trilogy in the most bizarre and hamstrung way possible), which is getting its HD version.

I know you like to be an smartass and that's great and all, but you are kind confusing plot with mythos shenanigans. And in any case, for as much as the FNC games have recurring topics and terminologies, each of them don't live or die by those (fairly loose) connections when each series have their own things going on.

So many people complain about the music. The music sounded the same to me.

More than anything else, I'm pretty sure these fans have issues with the arrangements changing the feeling of original tracks, which they have heard for over 10 years now.

TV Spot : The Hunt Begins -- PlayStation, Twitter

This looks great but makes me worry they'll do what nearly every series with an action side ends up doing: slowly turning into a full action game. Mass Effect, Resident Evil, Dead Space, Final Fantasy. It's like creative cancer.

I can't say I'm 100% with you on that one.
