I remember Nomura saying once on Famitsu that they where going to consider getting Kingdom Hearts 3D into the hands of more fans and everybody else if they could. He seemed it to say it like the usual vague promise he does in interviews too.

Making that info go public though seems like a way to keep dangling the carrot in front of the fans... that said, is outstanding the amount of passion and patience they have with the all the waiting they do. Hell they already jumped into conclusions throwing possible release dates when Kingdom Hearts, in general, is perpetually 'under development'.

What is it about FF7 that seems to bring out the inner dick in people. :P

You can always bet on SQEX's damned if you do, damned if you don't.

i don't believe i'm out of touch. i believe kids/young adults these days didnt have the benefit of the way i grew up. i accept that but i still feel the the FF7 remake should try to make both generations happy if possible instead of choosing to piss off one.

Is a matter of perspective more than anything else. All of the "I used to be with it" arguments that come out of the Simpsons doesn't apply or help anybody here since that relates to people that are into a specific genre of music, the style that comes with it and how people also like to label stuff to feel cool.

This is a about hardcore fans that want a remake so badly that they don't want it unless is the exact same deal from the original and not a different take in any way, shape or form because Advent Children was already too much for them to handle.

Portable Ops also takes place before MGSV, but it's somewhat murky canon and thus far not relevant to the plot, so you're fine ignoring it for story purposes.

Portable Ops is partially canonical. The San Hieronymo Incident and a few points are important, later Peace Walker moves on from much of what happened after that point.

As far as Solid Snake goes. MGS4 is one of those things you can either take or leave. It brings a bitter and redundant closure to every single event and character that was not really needed. In the long run who's characters benefit the most by the end of MGS4 are Raiden, Big Boss and Zero with Mei-Ling, Drebin and Little Gray being the most enjoyable out of all of them.

Also, the main problem with MGS4 is that is the continuation of the metanarrative with a life lesson that MGS2 is. Most of MGS2 wasn't intended to be taken literally, nor it was a sequel in the tradicional sense to MGS1. Not to mention that is very clear that MGS4 acts as a slap in the face for the most stubborn hardcore fans out there on purpose. Honestly, I recommend taking MGS2 as the true ending of Metal Gear like it was intended to be, check out Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake and leave MGS4 as The End of Evangelion of the series.

@Yggdrasil maybe aside from peacewalker as that had a lot of content, every mgs title (1, 2, 3, and 4) combined are still shorter in terms of playable content than MGSV. Hell even straight story, V seems to be leaps and bounds longer. And before you try to say something like "well if you aim for everything in the older games..." then yeah that would carry over to mgsv as well and you'd still have that much more content in V then the first 4 combined. I give peacewalker props though as it does have a boatload of stuff to go through, though not as long as MGSV by a longshot.

Oh, you were talking about 'content and experiences'. I don't see gaming in general from that angle since there's so much to it than just some marketing terms. But yeah, every MGS has always been bigger than it appears to be. Some more than others but there's always a huge amount of depth if you dig.

Either way, I genuinely didn't know what you meant before so thanks for replying back.

^The best entry? Haha. That's relative even among Metal Gear fans.

Maybe I'm projecting the finality of the recent Kojima/Konami split on to this, but it feels like Kojima wasn't at his happiest.

You are talking about the original reception of MGS2 and having to direct MGS4 there.

And you can put them to work on your not-Suikoden Castle.

How does recruitment works on Suikoden again?

the more i play this game the more i hate it. i was expecting the game to be more like the hospirtal.

What you want is the The Last of Us then, not Metal Gear.

this game is like every other metal gear solid game combined in terms of sheer length.

What do you mean exactly?

Tabata talks more about magic in Final Fantasy XV and Regis' redesign -- Nova Crystallis

Summary [by Nova Crystallis] of the interview from Spieletester with Hajime Tabata:

The reason wasn't that King Regis previous design didn't fit in the game, Tabata actually liked it and said that they have a good reason for it, though it's a huge spoiler for the rest of the game so they won't tell you why yet. They are going to reveal what's not the case soon.

Magic is usually activated by special rings the characters will be able to wear. It won’t come from the characters hands, instead you will manipulate the elements in the environment.

There are two types of magic in the game. One of them being that only those from the Lucis family can use.

Magic is about 60% complete. It works in-game, though they aren't happy with the visual effects yet.

The dog featured in the 'Dawn' trailer is a messenger for one of the characters.

No one hears the fans who don't speak, and the loud fans are usually the ones who make or break your brand.

None of that is as black and white as you make it appear to be.

The point I was making however is more of an issue within a section of the fanbase that stubbornly believes that Souls is exclusively about hardcore PvP encounters when the entire series pushes itself forward on its lore, PvE, Online Co-Op, exploration, experimentation and so on.

- POSITIVE: Final Fantasy X-2 is one of the best JRPGs ever made in the history of the world.  NEGATIVE: Its plot exposition is ridiculous.

Is as ridiculous as VII, VIII and X allowed X-2 to be ridiculous. Which incidentally, is all thanks to the chaotic writing of Kazushige Nojima in all four games with a few other staff members. Him and Masato Kato are not my favorites writers but lots of fans love their work.

That being said, is cool that XV only uses the script Nojima wrote for Versus only as reference.

- NEGATIVE: The Shin Megami Tensei series is the most pretentious pile of festering self-obsession in the JRPG market.  Guess what guys? You're pretty much playing Pokemon. Don't pretend it's cool just because it's occult.  Leave that attitude behind when you turn 20, please.  POSITIVE: The Persona series has some seriously great character building and design.

Get out of here with that noise man. :p

The "no fucking around" nature of SMT is not pretentious at all. Is just an RPG that has confidence in what it does, and that's something JRPGs in general could use more instead of throwing moe and fanservice at our faces.

Also, SMT and Persona haven't had anything to do with each other after the first Persona. There's no "better" than the other in this case.

It's pretty much as you said; it's Megaman. You learn everything on the spot and if you fail to adapt, you die.
Although Dark Soul fans would probably say that Megaman is the Dark Souls of Side-scrolling action platformers ;)

The "Is the Dark Souls of..." kind of descriptions have always been are the worst. What's worse than that though is putting all Souls fans in the same bag with the loud, elitist mofos that are an annoyance in the same fanbase they are a part of.

"Final Fantasy VII - The Visual Novel"

I'm okay with this.

I don't know if I'm okay with that personally. I mean even with the few cool moments the games has, VII's story is very odd overall. I honestly ended up wondering if that entire journey was worth anything with the way it ended in each of my three playthroughs (despite of the fun I did had with the game).

Metal Gear is the most overrated series of all time.  Metal Gear Solid isn't a good action game or a good stealth game.  The best parts about Metal Gear are when the writers deliberately troll the player (i.e. Raiden in MGS2, Mantis in MGS1), but the gameplay and story are both subpar.

The entire souls series (and Bloodborne) feel janky and are downright un-fun to play.

We can't all have good taste I guess.

PS4 Getting Acclaimed Stealth Game République Next Year -- GameSpot

"All five episodes coming in one package to the PlayStation Store."

Nice. I'll finally be able to check this one out for myself.

Pretty much everyone noticed those dongpits not just because of the location, but the shape. I imagine someone would only ignore it if they wanted to be a passive aggressive jackass.

Labelling soemone like that for such a thing is a bit too much I think.

Doesn't Zone of the Enders have a literal 'cock pit'?

Real talk. Only awkward people found that funny. Either way, Zone of the Enders is ideally the one series that should make a comeback from Konami.
