I don't understand Square's definition of "Installment."

The original FFVII wasn't broken into 3 installments, they just put it on 3 separate disks.

I just hope they're planning on adding in a bunch of stuff or something. The original FFVII was actually fairly short by comparison to other JRPG's, you could see everything that the game had to offer in under 50 hours, and that's at my slow-ass pace.

The movie isn't even out and I'm already experiencing Star Wars fatigue. Is their a single company on the planet that doesn't have money tied up in TFA in one way or another?

This is how the world is going to end. People are going to get sick of Star Wars but at that point our entire world economy will be based on Star Wars merchandise.

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!

Rogue Galaxy - About halfway through Zaraika and running low on items thanks to those damn OP Mimics. So does anyone remember... I realize I could start upgrading equipment at any time, but for the sake of playing the game "correctly" (don't ask: strange gaming habit of mine), does the game ever offer up a tutorial when it expects you to start upgrading or do they expect the player to find that feature on their own before giving the tutorial? I keep forgetting.

A little afraid of the phrase "Each with its own unique experience" because it makes me think of the XIII trilogy, but as others have said, we can only really wait and see.

The hopeful news is that it doesn't sound like this is particularly early in the development stages.

Cuz Steam
 

This annoys me more than it should. Partially because it undercuts the value of the Vita and partially because it opens these niche games to public ridicule by folks who would just ignore them otherwise. Not saying the ridicule is completley unwarranted, but it does get slightly obnoxious that people seem to be unable to ignore games on Steam the way they can ignore games on other platforms.

Okay, if it's ATB... then that is the SMALLEST, most UNREADABLE readout I've ever seen. Maybe they sized it down for the demo to show of pretty visuals?



Excellent point.  I'm surprised I didn't notice that myself.  I guess I was too taken with Jessie's voice:P 

But, yeah, that's been a complaint I've had about RPGs this generation: minuscule fonts, be they in field menus, battle menus, dialogue, etc.  And there is no way to make them bigger.  I like to keep a reasonable distance from my TV and I almost can't when the fonts are so small.  I've even complained about it in some 3DS games.  I miss the old days of bigger fonts.  Or the newer games need an option to increase font sizes, like my Kindle does.  That's why I favor it over trade paperbacks- I can make my fonts bigger for more pleasurable reading.   The infinitesimal font was a big sticking point with the FFXV demo if I recall correctly. 

Another complaint I lobby a lot in games is menus that are stylish and cool to look at, but a messy ergonomic nightmare to navigate and use.  That's nothing too new, though, especially in FF games.  FF8's menus were pretty cluttered.

This is probably my biggest 'con' about Xenoblade X right now....  am I that blind or is this really a thing?  I'm always happy to read your posts about it Din. :(


Amen. Sacrificing practicality for sleek style seems to be the thing to do in all manner of modern design and it's annoying as sin.

Does the game have the same bullshit gem system? That was way too much to keep track of in XBC

Picked up Rogue Galaxy on the PS4 last night since I never did finish it. Works pretty great, but I do notice the joystick sensitivity seems to be all over the place. Kind of want to use PS4 Share and do a game journal for this, but I don't have a decent microphone to narrate, so that's not gonna happen anytime soon.

Now that I've slept on it, I have to say I'm pretty surprised Persona 5 didn't have a presence at the main presser.

I think it might still be vaguely turn-based since they clearly show multiple characters being controlled in battle which would be hard in a purely action-based system. I'm still betting on some kind of hybrid between original FF7 and FF13.

Where is Dice with her Jake's tears of joy gif when you need it?

Ni no Kuni 2 is kinda odd... does anyone have fond memories of the first one? It was fun for a bit, but I actually had to give that one up it dragged along so much.

Looks like Rogue Galaxy and Dark Cloud (the inferior original) are going to be among the first batch of PS2 games on the Playstation 4. Guess we'll hear more about it tomorrow, but looks like Sony is doing the bare minimum for backwards compatibility afterall.
