@Andrew: Keeping rubbing salt on the wound doesn't make the bitterness go away you know.

I've heard that a lot of people rage quit this game. Hopefully I'll be able to get through it without that kind of frustration.

Going through The Evil Within with a thirst for blood is gonna get you killed easier than normal. Is as simple as that.

@Dice: Nomura is too much of a tease to be praised.

@Klutz64: Ironic with Ergheiz morphed into Dissidia and the rebooted Dissidia being in the hands of Team Ninja.

I went to EventHubs to check out Street Fighter V impressions and I made the typical bad choice of reading the comment section even though I know I should not do it, and there was this comment that sort of bother me:

"First SF5 tournament comes, old heads still get bopped, some will hate on the game and go back to SF4, and the cycle will continue until SF6 comes out, when it begins again."

Aside from the guy being extremely smug (you can read the rest of his comment here) and that the first couple of tournaments of SFV already happened, the thing he mentions of a "SF6" doesn't make sense considering that, technically speaking, Street Fighter V is the 20th Street Fighter as far as the main series goes. Whatever a fighting game is called that's just merely the logo or rather identity is known for publicly.

As far SFIV players going back to it for not liking SFV, that really goes both ways with SF fans being very stubborn when it comes to certain changes or additions at times.

This obsession that endlessly goes on with technical specifications doesn't bring up anything constructive when it detracts from what actually matters.


Lies & Hype: The E3 2015 Story -- Super Bunnyhop, YouTube

Two things: (one) is comforting that I'm not the only one that feels the same way about most of E3 and (two) Capcom put Nintendo's stream to shame with Street Fighter V. Nintendo throwing away their more approachable way of doing things for the sake of amiibos was a shame to say the least. Also, outside of Reggie being unbearable as a marketing machine, I don't know how many times I heard the word 'mechanic'. It was as ridiculous as the times 'sports' and 'content and experiences' were said constantly.

You mean that you weren't sad when they first announced this?

The whole deal with the remake and the announcement itself is more annoying, redundant and manipulative if anything rather than sad.

There has always been misplaced expectations and views towards The Last Guardian. The biggest fascination behind it however is its artistic vision and been able to experience it. And also you bet that for the longest time TLG has been genuinely more enticing than a remake born out of the devotion of a lunatic fanbase, or a sequel that's a long overdue wrap up to a series that constantly lives up to peculiar expectations.

Some of the impressions I've seen around of Street Fighter V at E3 make an uncanny amount effort to mention that this is a "early version", but they are ignoring the fact that the base that constitutes SFV is built, ready to go and made available in a limited capacity which makes SFV technically out in the wild. And that's also par for the course given how most of the genre works.

The gameplay looks pretty sweet, but I still think the presentation is garbage.

Is not different from what one would expect to see in Persona honestly. And while I was somewhat indifferent at first, I dig the flamboyant and lively nature of #FE. A shame some feel like they are above it.

Ironically (or not so), I can already foresee a Lightning outfit for Cloud. Since Lightning got a Cloud soldier outfit.

LR and XIV already has that covered.

Wasn't the production values and scope part of the appeal of VII back in the day? As far as I've heard, VII started development in '94 and when it came out in '97 it was as much of a big deal as Super Mario 64 in terms of the impact it left. Though, many say that Super Mario 64 is way more important.

> Limit the shitty 0-G air fighting from FFAC.  In fact, keep FFAC-isms away from the plot.

Breaks my heart as a lover of high-speed action with nice choreography/direction reading such harsh words. One of Advent Children's biggest strengths was how unapologetic and enjoyable its action scenes were (and probably still are). Tifa against Loz was especially fantastic at the time.

Then again, I do remember that you complained about Lightning Returns' opening cinematic being too much like AC and went on a rant (even when you never seem to care about the actual game). Either way, this whole thing might be an acquired taste. Some people couldn't stand Man of Steel's action, and I had a blast with it since it showed that a live-action Dragon Ball Z movie can be actually good if they put actual effort into it.

Basically, its swell that they're reaping all the attention that they've spent decades sowing, but to me, it means that I no longer have any real reason to pay attention to them as the games that drew me to Square and Squeenix in the past are long gone and they're never coming back (outside of endlessly rehashed remakes).

Honestly, the problem with Square fans has always been that they put a little bit too much of their heart and soul on stressing out with SQEX's bad habits and whatever they may or may not do. Incidentally, they know they can dangle the carrot virtually as long as they want.

In any case, as a Metal Gear fan I already went through the hype of a remake of the most influential entry in the series and it ended up being a peculiar situation. After all remakes that exceed and expand on the original vision successfully are a rarity.

Also wasn't FFXIII-2 technically FFXVI?

Then X-2 is technically XI by that logic?

I'm still not sure if FFXIV comes before FFXIII or not.
