I didn't see a thread for this, but I just found some realllyyyyy cool shit, so I figured we should have a thread for cool shit like this.
Credit for the f-art joke goes to Dice.

I'm almost done with the demo and I agree with Stephen's preview, but one concern for me is that imperial soldiers appear really often and so far 95% of the time they're piss easy but one time (at level 30ish) they really screwed my party up because they kept committing suicide and I'd get KO'd, then revived, and probably 2~3 seconds later I'm at 0 hp again.

-- Final Fantasy 7 should not be remade.

I will never understand this sentiment.

"I do not think a remake of FFVII will be enjoyable or surpass the original." Sure.

"I think Square Enix will lose money on an FFVII remake." You're probably wrong, but feel free to hold the opinion.

"FFVII SHOULD not be remade." -- okay, so, passive sentence structure first of all. By what standard are judgment can you possibly be using the almighty S-word "Should"? Square Enix should not do a remake ... why? When their remakes consistently get them money and introduce a new generation to games of old?

Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, who is so curmudgeonly as to say that a remake of FFVII *ruins* the original in any way shape or form is living in an alternate universe. The original still exists. On like, every platform available. Go play it.

And since the "remake will ruin my love of FFVII" argument is made invalid, there's almost nothing left with which to use the word "should." I'd honestly argue the only argument left is the profit argument, and there, I think most people would agree, S-E is *going* to profit on an FFVII remake. Unless they throw some ungodly sum of money into the dev, which I don't think they will. They are building fresh off of FFXV, they'll have plenty of engine/system stuff worked out in advance, and I suspect they'll have artists that are aching to rebuild Midgar, Nibelheim, Northern Crater, etc. And if they choose to include all seven Weapons in the remake (through some retconning), enemy designers will have a field day with that.

So, even if you hate the remake or have no intention of buying it, the statement "it SHOULD not be remade" still makes *no* sense to me, at all, whatsoever.

I'd like if remakes were only made if the original game had a passionate development team and something about the game fucked up, so give them a second chance to make it right

I really don't get the argument that it's "introducing a new generation" to an old game, because again, it's already available on a bunch of platforms and for cheaper than the remake will be at full price.

You misspelled Mark Knopfler, but then again I don't get the love for Jimi Hemdrix.

Quote from: MeshGearFox
Euro Truck Simulator 2 is extremely repetitive and boring.
Ooooo, you did not just diss ETS2, that shit's my jam.

As for a serious opinion (on an unpopular game) I think Onechanbara (particularly Z2 right now) is genuinely fun/not repetitive and the fanservice is barely noticeable especially if a bunch of enemies are onscreen.

I just read that The Bridge (FX) was cancelled, and I hadn't seen any of it but I'd read good things about it.

Fire Bringer?
I got this about a year ago for dirt cheap at a bookshop, and it's pretty highly rated on goodreads.

How about something surreal?
These may be a bit grim, but Rpgmaker stuff like Off, Space Funeral, Mad Father, and Schuld keep coming to mind as being really neat.

If one of the main characters is a dragon, have it be siblings with another dragon that's allied with the villains so you can have a near-end-game-boss-fight between them one on one.

edit: speaking of rpgmaker

Is jank a bad word to day these days? 

Nightcrawler was amazing!  Derek was right to point it that it was a reductionist argument to say that movies are targeted towards children, but I really feel like television is pushing narrative structure, characters, and themes in a way that most (again, I say most) movies simply aren't interested in even attempting.  Sure, you have Ex Machina pushing the ideas of what it means to be human, but for everyone one or two of those "under the radar" films you have tons of audience pleasers designed to bring in a lot of cash.  Nothing wrong with that, of course, but I love how television shows like The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Americans and Game of Thrones attempt to try new things in the medium.  It's also way easier to have these "slow burn" stories when you have hours and hours to tell them. 

And The Mark of Kri was amazing.  Real shame what happened to the sequel...

Not a bad word, but it makes me laugh every time I hear it, and then I think of that random npc Jank at the dock colony in Xenosaga 1.
I think a prime example of good and new TV is Mr Robot and come to think of it, maybe Netflix making their own original stuff plus Amazon/Hulu have made TV really good again because competition.

edit: So for this last episode, about Omega Labyrinth, you guy were acting like it wants to be something really awesome and stuff, but it doesn't seem any different than Compile Heart's regular trend of doing wacky perverted stuff, seeing as it's about a girl with a flat chest on a quest to enlarge her boobs so it's definitely not subtle and not pretending to be deep.

Nintendo executives should read this thread.

I swear right as I heard Rob talking about Witcher 3 improving the way Geralt controls, I thought he was about to use the word jank.
And the last movie I saw that comes to mind as being really mature and adult, etc, was Nightcrawler but I don't keep up with many recent movies.

edit: Points for mentioning Mark of Kri, btw.

You could try adding something like a feedback thing, mainly to help if someone has some games for you to list or if something is inaccurate.
edit: it may also be helpful (if you can) to specify the region of the release dates and the platforms, since a lot of games are released several years apart in different regions.
