FF XV won't be at E3

"- But seriously, information on Final Fantasy XV will be at E3, right?

Hashimoto: Well, first I’d like to say that development for FFXV is going well. Internally, we try to ascertain the best timing for revealing new information about FFXV to the fans. So when we were going over our promotion plans, we judged that this year’s E3 would not be the best time to exhibit information about FFXV. Instead we are currently planning to exhibit new information at events after E3 2014. I am extremely grateful to all the fans who excitedly anticipate FFXV, and I’m looking forward to share new information when the timing is right. I would appreciate if fans hold out until then."

You need to complete all the main quests by the end of all days, otherwise you will be prompted to new game plus and keep all your items and levels.. Focus on finishing the main quests if you are tight on time and remember to abuse Chronostasis.

I don't like how I have to hold the dualshock 3 with my fingers and not completely grip it with my whole hand.

I still haven't reached the point of saturation with "epic stories" though judging from the games I played so far, I don't think I played a lot of run of the mill and generic rpgs(if any really, if something doesn't meet my personal standard of quality I will have no qualms in dropping it immediately). Maybe when I run out of amazing games to play?(In this day and age I doubt that will ever happen)
It's not about having an epic story per se, it's about how you pull off such a story and what else can you bring to the table to set yourself apart. So I guess I stand in the middle between Klyde and Mecharobot in this regard.

Well there are actually adapters for literally every official console controller out there.
Also Dice your 10000th post is upon us.

In theory, yes. Not just Dolphin either, of course. Looks like my Xbox 360 controller is going to have some competition :D

BTW I doubt this is just for Smash. I see a Virtual Gamecube in my crystal ball.

I'm sure they could reaally use positive news like that.  Hell, GC had a ton of classics I'd love to bite into again, and E3 would be a damn fine way to get that out there.  I'm psyched as hell, for this, and especially if the USB can plug into PCs.... omg, I LOVe YOU NINTENDOOOOO

Dicey you can get usb adapters to use gamecube controllers on PC on amazon for under 5 dollars.

Ended up finishing the episode.. Loved the old timey song from Fallout, it feels rather nostalgic because it's something that resembles what my father would have on the car during summer vacations.
I'm up for some Curtain Call talk.

Damn, those Secret of Evermore and Another Day's Work Jazzy tracks were amazing!
Featuring Morphogenetic Sorrow greatly pleases me xD. I love Shinji Hosoe's work.. All the games that I played in which he was the composer I absolutely loved the soundtracks. Xenosaga episode 2(I know it gets flack but I really really like that soundtrack even outside of the cutscenes, especially the more atmospheric tunes like Omega System, Old Miltia, Labyrinthos.. They remind me of 999's approach to creating atmosphere and they really resonate with me.) and ofc 999/VLR.

Will listen to the 2nd half of the episode another day and comment more if other tracks stand out for me.

Started playing Ys: Memories of Celceta last night. Game is nice far. I have currently mapped about 8% of the forest. If the game continues at the current rate then it seems like it will be a very quick game (which I guess would be nice since I am going to need to do a second play through on Nightmare for the platinum).
It's like 30 hours.

Not sure when my last entry was, but I finished FFXIII-2 a few weeks ago. Started up FFXIII-Lightning Returns. I'm a little frustrated with the time constraints right now even though I'm not that far in. I realize I can't save everyone, so I'm forced to decide who's worth pursuing or pass up for the quests given. I also think I need to re-study battle mechanics again because I feel like I'm taking forever to kill a target waiting for my EP gauge to replenish. Still on the final battle of Fire Emblem: Awakening, just haven't gotten around to it.

Actually you can save everyone, the game is bullshitting you. I slept through the last 5 days because I had already done all the sidequests. Around day 5-6 you will be able to start abusing Chronostasis a lot. Don't worry about the time limit and enjoy yourself :)

I'm allergic to cats and my dog died a few years ago(well last year really), now my heart is ice cold.(Do not take this at face value, I like to romanticize things.)

I have come to the realization that Im a full blown anime nerd too now.. I had previously watched Death Note(number 1 anime I watched so far), Clannad, Evangelion and Madoka but it was JoJo that made me come to this conclusion.

Anyway a few weeks ago I marathoned the entirety of part 1 and 2 of JoJo in one day and now I patiently await for new episodes of Stardust Crusaders. Episode 8 that came out today was pretty good.

Wow that was fast! Cool.

Bullocks, I recommend Nier to everyone.

Seriously, the gameplay was not that bad.  It certainly wasn't perfect, the game was much too easy (to the point where you never even needed to use most of your abilities) and very repetitive.  But it ran fine, there was decent variety in the weapon types, and I really liked how the magic system worked (even though you didn't need to use it most of the time...).  I also appreciated the little gameplay mix-ups.  I mean, why not?

But when you add in the music and storytelling, holy shit is that an awesome package.  Of course you need to do a newgame+ to really appreciate the story and normally I would hate a game for doing that (I don't have time to replay games).  But they make it really easy to fly through your second playthrough, in fact it actually starts halfway through the game.  And when you consider what they did with the newgame+ mechanic I honestly don't know how else they could have pulled it off.  And I don't know any other game that's ever done something similar.


You're the man!

Klyde play Nier and read the novellas on each character in Drakengard 3, it will give you more insight on what makes them tick. http://drakengardgame.com/

Do the latter first :P
