Well if I wanted to be pedantic I could say that interview doesn't completely discount the possibility of turn-based since he was only commenting on how stupid it looks for people to be fighting each other in single file like everyone went to the Napoleon school of shitty outdated tactics.

Either way, I think it's the right choice to change things up. If I wanted to play FF7 again, I'd just go play the original game.

Sounds kinda like they want to get rid of turn based combat for this thing.

I'm not saying I don't think calling for the cancellation of a game you happen to not like is incredibly dumb, I'm just saying that that Destructoid article is clickbait garbage.

Even if I can see where that line of thought is coming from, I can't take any gaming "journalist" that actually uses the word "entitled" seriously anymore because it's almost always used for clickbait garbage articles, which is exactly what that is.

There were a lot of misdirects during that show, yeah. First they showed they showed the FF7 trailer (again), then they showed that crappy iOS KH game, then they showed the guys behind Tangled, then just about when he was going to show the next trailer he stopped to say how he was actually there at E3.

I'll take that sort of joking around over Nintendo wasting 10 minutes on a montage of people playing the Mario theme.

Lots of games from SE I'm interested in, though I wasn't blown away by the show, probably because it was pretty much what I was expecting. Star Ocean footage was probably the biggest thing in terms of changing how I felt about the game- it looked great.

Really this is what I expected the game to be after that reveal trailer, so I guess at least I can be smug that I was right to be skeptical instead of still being mad we didn't get a tactical RPGs about fighting hellspawn demons?

I think it's the same artist or something so I'm guessing that's what Dice is referring to.

But yeah, I'll play .hack with its 5 dungeons repeated for 50 hours about 10 times over rather than this otaku pandering stuff.

A whole lot of nothing. Star Fox looked cool and that's about it.

Metroid fans getting ready to commit sudoku I'm guessing. SMT/FE embodies everything I hate about modern anime tropes.

i hope they announce tons and tons of dlc for shenmue III and also make it an episodic game

Mass Effect trailer was a whole lot of nothing.
Mirror's Edge might be cool if they stick to that cool core concept they had but fixed a lot of things like the leap of faith gameplay the first game had.
South Park is a surprise and I'm excited.

Tons of roleplaying games have had the setting created for you even from the tabletop days so I'm not even sure what you're saying with the whole futility bit. Obviously if I wanted a ton of flexibility I'd just go play a tabletop game but this isn't an either/or situation where you either have roleplaying or you don't. Nobody ever said that every RPG needs to follow that idea but Bethesda games always sell themselves as very roleplaying-centric games (Even in this presentation Todd Howard was doing his same old "you get to choose what you do" type of speech like he usually does) and the decision to have a voiced main character works against that idea.

It's certainly nothing that would ruin the game for me or anything, it's just an annoying trend because this has been happening to just about every big RPG series.

To me the whole appeal of open world games like this is for you to be able to roleplay instead of being forced into being "generic family guy/girl in his 20s" which is likely what the voice (and the backstory) will be doing. Granted they might give us the option of turning the voice off but I'm guessing the dialogue choices will be written with this idea in mind.

Voicing your protagonist by its nature puts limits on how you're allowed to write dialogue as well as the volume of the dialogue due to costs. For example in Mass Effect, just about every single choice would give you one different line of dialogue which was written in a way so that the next line of dialogue would make sense regardless of whatever choice you made. This is without getting into the issue of the disconnect between paraphrasing and what your character actually ends up saying, but there are ways around that anyway so I hope they use them.

Don't believe Todd Howard's lies!

I like what I see so far, a nice crafting system and SPECIAL is making it back in. Some people noticed a lack of Traits/Skills on the status screen though, so dunno what that's about. Also I'm not a fan of the choice to make a voiced protagonist + use of a conversation wheel. The effort they put into it is certainly impressive (Apparently they went and found like 1000 popular names so people could actually call you by name), but no matter what you do having a voiced protagonist still limits roleplaying options compared to just having everything written out.
