I recall reading a business thingy from Square saying they were going to focus heavily on social and mobile games this year. This is probably part of that.

My guess is a browser-based RPG where you buy coins to do special attacks otherwise you can do basic attacks only except if you use the social aspects to get your mobile friends to play.

Your guess is frighteningly plausible.

Hmmmmm.

My guess:
a battle-focused game that mixes/matches FF characters and enemies from throughout the series

Currently in the middle of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere. So far, so good. After this I'll be reading the complete works of Sherlock Holmes on a friend's recommendation.

You are going to be experiencing a great deal of good reading for the foreseeable future. American Gods, also by Neil Gaiman, is probably my favorite of his books.

Damn, that looks so freakin' sick.  This game really needed to run at 60 fps on consoles.  What a shame. 

Yeah, I'm definitely gonna pick it up when it shows up on Steam.

After finishing Phantasy Star Generation I for the PS2... I'd like a /good/ remake of PSI.

Aw come on, the remake was pretty good!

Welp. I love you.

I don't understand the love people are giving him on Twitter and in that gaf thread.

It's probably kinda like watching Harlan Ellison, where you know the guy's an asshole yet he's incredibly amusing to watch when it's not directed towards you.

That's actually a pretty good assessment.

Yeah, MOST enemies respawn... fortunately not the Black Knights or some of the super rats or megahedgehogs.

Kamiya is being a complete douche. Kotaku are ALWAYS dumbasses. That's no reason to start attacking foreigners and being a complete prick. He could have just... you know, ignored them? He's right that he doesn't represent Japanese gaming as a whole, and Kotaku's post was stupid and sensational, but that's no excuse for how vitriolic he became. It's like someone getting pissed that there was a stupid sensational headline on Enquirer. You expect these things from these outlets.

 I don't understand the love people are giving him on Twitter and in that gaf thread. So he said Kotaku sucks? He has joined the ranks of nearly everyone that has ever read the site.

Kotaku does suck though.

Do you think the average stormtrooper knows how to install a toilet main? All he knows is killing in white uniforms.

Those poor contractors.

I personally thought it was incredibly well-done. I'd rather have no dialogue than bad dialogue. The fact that we've already seen the "End of an Era" bit doesn't make it any less impressive. It probably would've had more of an impact if they had released it all at once, but either way, I'm satisfied. Super hyped for this.


Still standing by my opinion. Is it cool? Yes. Could it have been much better? Most definitely. There's no real cohesiveness in the aftermath footage, which after the apocalypse just doesn't flow right for me. Grand companies riding >flash>Circle of Knowing NPCs> flash> Odin > flash > Behemoth + Crystal Tower > flash > Adventurers appear > muted dialogue from Rogaedyn Paladin > flash > Chocobos from nowhere > Riding off towards strange new landmark that is poorly visible due to oversized logo. What exactly does that tell anyone?

Probably the biggest offender is the fact that they kept the majority of the End of an Era trailer totally secret, and now we get an extended version with "new" footage that was already spotlighted in nearly 3 earlier trailers with next to no cohesion. There's perhaps 15 seconds of actually new footage in an almost 9 minute long trailer. That's just lazy.

I agree with Derek. It's an MMO intro-- it isn't meant to tell you anything. It's meant to look pretty and be full of meaningless crap. See: every WoW intro. At least this one made me think FINAL FANTASY!

I actually thought the song was awesome and fitting the 80's/90's cyberpunk theme. If nothing else, this game has the style down to a T.

I can appreciate the opposite opinion of mine, but I believe that Bethesda employs 'quantity over quality.' Building a giant world with lore is certainly an achievement, but I've never felt like Bethesda's TES games are that compelling. The repetitive dungeons and sort of meaningless feeling to everything really cut my enjoyment short. I can usually get some hours out of the joy of exploration and finding stuff, but eventually the seams start to show and I start to feel as if everything has been assembly-lined.

I don't think Bioware is perfect either, but I was more commenting on the fact that any increase in similarity between DA and TES going forward is because Skyrim sold like pre-buttered pancakes and EA took notice, not out of some "brilliant spark of ingenuity."
