FFV remake details? I swear those sprites look like the FFV ones...

^This.

But I gotta watch SAC from beginning to end, soon.

2013 for me is all about Dead Space 3, The Last of Us, Beyond: 2 Souls, and probably some smaller(Indie,Arcade, etc.) games that have yet to show themselves.

Meanwhile, you reminded me why I am about done with Non-RPGs. With the exception of Sly 4 and Shantae 3DS, none of the games I'm seeing coming out this year that aren't RPGs generally lack any sense of creatibity and whimsey to its visual style. While I'm sure they'll all be fun games, in order for me to be interested in a game in the first place for me to find out, it has to do something eye-catching, the best of which is through the visuals. I like to get lost in the world of a game, regardless of its genre (I can do that even with a puzzle game), and if the game is interesting visually I'm already ready to become invested in its world, regardless of what that eventually is or how it turns out. With most of the games coming out this year, I don't see any of them with a world I'm willing to take an interest in.

Now just to be clear: I am not dissing those games. Again, their probably good, fun games all around. But so are lots of games, and I'd much rather spend my time with the ones that appeal to me visually, and therefore the ones with the worlds I'll find the most interesting. So far, that seems heavily restricted to RPGs these days.

EDIT: TL;DR - I hate realistic art styles in games. Even adding some cel-shading, like in the Walking Dead Teltale games, is enough to make a game infinitely more appealing to me. But if it looks like my backyard, I'd much rather be out there than playing that game, no matter how fun it turns out to be.

EDIT 2: Also I'm discounting Wii U games, since I'm not getting a Wii U this year, and when I don't own a console, what comes out for it doesn't exist in my little world. :P

Ni No Kuni is my #1 most anticipated, and it comes out next week! I won't be able to play it until the week after, though...

Followed by:

Tales of Xillia
Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers
Etrian Odyssey IV
Phantasy Star Online 2

The first three I'll pre-order. Might also pick up Fire Emblem, but I'm not expecting much from it.

I actually thought the demo was quite riveting. It was only early stuff, but so far I'm impressed. Sure, the story is only half-interesting, it has a cheezy hollywood style to it, the voice acting flat out sucks, the difficulty feels a tad low for a Devil May Cry game, the demon pull mechanic confused the heck outta me, and the platforming controls kinda suck, but the core combat was fun - not as fun as DMC usually is, but better than Ninja Theory has ever done before. It feels like a Heavenly Sword that doesn't suck, for instance, with the way you switch weapons with the trigger. The boss battle on show was also cleverly designed. At the very least, they know how to make this game intense, while also throwing in enough downtime to explore your surroundings, which is quite rewarding.

I honestly don't expect an unrelated party to ever really come close to Devil May Cry 3 and 4, but I think this is as close to them as I could possibly ask, assuming the rest of the game can hold this level of quality. That said, I won't be buying it day one, but that's more because of money issues than anything else. I may pick it up next year, though. And I look forward to it.

G-d, this does look like a good game. However, and I hate to beat a thoroughly dead horse, I just can't get used to Dante's new look. I've seen it for over a year now, and it still looks...weird. That's, like, the only problem I have with the game, though. I was worried about the gameplay from the early videos, but it does look like they've patched that up recently. I guess I'll go play the demo and see if I like it, though I might just end up playing more of DMC4 and Bayonetta solely because I like the style of those games more.

Can you? Nintendo's website said something specific about that, but I can't remember what and now I can't find it...

and if it had a physical cart.

Asides from a collectors perspective is this a problem? Would I have space issues if I got a bundle because I couldn't uninstall the game without losing it?

Oddly enough, I can't find a definitive answer to this question. You'd think it'd be in the FAQ...I can't find anyone even asking that question, let alone an FAQ that mentions it....

EDIT:

Reworded the question, and found the answer in the System transfer section (you won't lose the pre-installed game if you do a system transfer, btw. I didn't know that. The eShop accounts merge, too) And I found out that the game will be saved to your download history, meaning you can redownload it on that system (or any systen you do a system transfer to) via the eShop. So it is safe to delete if you run out of space.

I dunno, I guess it's just refreshing to see someone A) Not let Kotaku get away with their shit and B) actually speak their mind, even if it does make them sound stupid and childish.

Plus, the whole thing's as amusing as watching two twelve year olds fight on the playground...which, I find to be very amusing indeed.

i just hope they keep it fundamentally turn based and dont start thinking they need a psuedo MMO style battle system.

I'm sure if they wanted to, they'd just go full action-based, kinda like the Devil Summoner games on the PS2.

I should probably play that soon...oh wait, yeah, now I remember, I need a controller. Guess I can use my PS3 one...

STALKER wouldn't work well with a controller at all and I doubt it even supports one.

That could be a major problem. I find FPSes to be completely unplayable with a mouse and keyboard. :| Crap...

Howso?

I can't aim for shit with a mouse, and I find mouses uncomfortable since I have so little space to use one. And I can never remember what key does what when I really need it when I use a keyboard.

Anyways, While the game itself doesn't support a controller, it seems there are programs I can use for it that'll emulate a mouse and keyboard with a controller, and there are enough major commands that can be mapped to a controller, too. I'll see how that goes once I get around to it sometime this week.

Mickey, try stalker? It has much lower system requirements, but is similarly atmospheric, apocalyptic, and Slavic.

I forget I have that game. I should probably play that soon...oh wait, yeah, now I remember, I need a controller. Guess I can use my PS3 one...

And I agree with a lot of what you said about Zelda, especially Zelda 1, since I'm playing it right now, and have gotten further than ever, so I'm noticing a lot of the strategy and design of the dungeons and enemies.

Actually, reading it all again while I type this, I think you hit every nail on the head...I'd explain more, but I don't think there is anything more I could add.

I like Hot Fuzz *way* more than Shaun of the Dead (a lot of others feel the other way I find).

Oh yeah, same here. I actually thought Shaun of the dead could've been better, though I can't quite remember how or why. Hot Fuzz, though, was pretty ace. I should rewatch it soon.

I'm gonna be blunt, this looks even more generic than RO1. :| And yet still I am intrigued for some reason. Guess cuz it has class upgrades, and it's free. I'm just short of running it, though (need a slightly better GPU to meet minimum), so I won't be participating in the beta.
