Its ok, I already know FF7 was all style no substance so........not a problem. :P (sort of joking, sort of)

Turns out a leaked bioware survey was once again accurate. I'm ready for this. I hope we still get the dialogue interrupt system from Mass Effect 2. That was so fun.

Which is fantastic since I would like some story deviations. Why would I want the exact same story that holds no surprises for me anymore? There are plenty of games with pretty graphics out there.

I was never into FF7 since at that time I was busy obsessing over MechWarrior and then bladurs gate came out. When I finally played it, I still thought FF6 was a better game. The idea that FF was the great game ever made or even the greatest RPG ever made is laughable. Its not even better than Chrono Trigger. Now if we were getting an Chrono Trigger remake.......but sadly that's never happening. I'd personally rather see a FF8 remake but if they change up the gameplay along with the graphics then I'm down for this FF7 remake. Midgard will certainly look amazing in modern graphics. I just hope this comes out for PC.

I felt the trailer's speech was very meta, as if talking directly to fans. Listen to it again and think about it. ;)

Call me crazy but I kind of prefer the smaller scale of witcher 2. Why must every RPG be trying to emulate skyrim, theres only so much running around I can take. And this is from someone who loves skyrim/fallout.

After the Witcher 3 (where CDPR had the "innovative" thought to actually give side quests a storyline and choice), another fallout 3 is going to seem disappointing. That said, the trailer did reveal that they are likely going to be using a voiced protagonist. Perhaps they can do more fleshed out sidequest and less fetch quest filler.

Well, this would be more Bi-annually. I'm fine with it since I'm not sure why this type of game would need a long development time if they are using the same engine. What I'm more depressed over is no bloodborne for the PC. Being a sony elusive, its pretty much guaranteed to never be ported. Which is a real shame since the lovecraftian themes are amazing.

LOL, don't worry. Its a very weird game that only gets crazier the further into the story you go. lol
24  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bloodborne on: April 28, 2015, 09:01:33 PM
But you can always beat the game again..........and again, and again......you get my point. :P

Patch 4 + 5 are a god send since they solved many of the combat bugs. Now, finally the upgrade to warcry adds the armor bonus to front armor which greatly increases a 2h warriors suitability. Also, 2h warriors can finally detonate status effects. This  allows the OP Ice Mine + Pull of the Abyss + Whirlwind combo. Laugh as you obliterate whole groups of enemies.

What the kind of outfit is that? Do they have cosplay in this universe?
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: April 20, 2015, 01:51:39 PM
I didn't have a problem with the maps. Yes they were big, but they were full of quests and collectibles so I was always doing something and the exploration of them was fun to me.

I suppose its more a personal problem, I don't have the time to play a game where I waste so much time just running around.

Theres no true ending. Souls games are more choose your own adventure. The ending you choose and the order you beat the game in is up to you. Though, obviously, I prefer the ending where you wake up from the hunters dream. The other endings remind me of bad endings from  games like silent hill. Though in this case, they do serve to expand the lore of the game.

One of the things I'm going to point out in my review is that Pillars does a really great job of avoiding that D&D-ism-- your abilities are often 'per encounter' instead of 'per rest (although there are some of those too),' and resting is tied to a finite resource, so there's more of a strategy to when you use abilities-- and because you have greater access, you're doing more with more of your characters. There are also just more abilities per class, so warriors don't just hit things in the face all day, they have knockdown strikes, sweep attacks, etc.

The older games were great, but the combat is definitely better in this.

Actually, thats old D&D-ism. 5th edition provides a lot more per encounter abilities or regain of abilities on short rests. Even wizards can now much more rapidly regain their spells as well as having powerful at-will cantrips they can cast. 5th edition is a big improvement but I digress.
