... Well at least they're panning violence in general instead of just exclusively violence against women like Bendis does.

What's more offensive is that they keep trying to force "Doom is fast" despite the new Doom not being even as fast as Advanced Warfare. Shits as slow as Halo 3.

In any case, I really really just want to see StarFoxU. I want it so damn bad.

Doom looks slow and bad, also they didn't immediately start playing E1M1 when the gameplay rolled in so clearly they have no idea what they're doing. Good thing Doom WADs are forever, so we have Demonsteel and Brutal Doom.

Fallout 4 had a good presentation, but the stuff they should is all ancillary, nothing of genuine substance. Give us a good chunk of actual writing and maybe I'll turn around Todd, for now it just looks like you grabbed some community mods and added an extremely minor amount of visual polish to Fallout 3. Also a really bad actor for your male lead at least.

Fallout Shelter actually looks kind of rad but it's iOS only so OH WELL.

Kind of unlikely because I don't let video games define my life the way most self-described "gamers" do. It is something I do for entertainment, not a way of life. Which probably explains why I don't take it as a personal attack when people point out the problems in the narrative presented by video games, in the same way I don't take it as a personal attack when people point out that the crows in Dumbo were racist even though I love Disney cartoons.

I'm pretty sure a lot of alcoholics also don't care that society looks down on them for drinking too much

even if you don't buy into the "gamer" lifestyle, playing "sick, troubling" games makes you one of them from an outside perspective and you'll be treated as such

videogames will never be a real hobby because "gamers" consistently make the choice not to be real people and that's not going to change
what people are trying to change is society ignoring the filth festering under that rock though, so that "gamers" and their toys might be destroyed for the greater good (since they refuse to change)

The reason I was unimpressed with their presentation was because very few of the games they showed were exclusive. A lot of the games looked cool but I'm just gonna get them for pc.

That said, yeah, hololens is nuts. I'm not expecting much from it for the first few years it's out, because this kind of tech always takes a while for devs to figure out how to make good games on, but it could lead to some pretty crazy stuff down the line. I really hope someone starts developing a sort of pen & paper game but also videogame that can be played with it.

MS E3 showing has been getting better year after year. This year was a good show, but what hurt their new IP showings was the lack of gameplay footage. Funny enough, MS gave indie game makers more of a spotlight than Sony (a reversal from last year). No Scalebound also crippled their presence. And the anticipation for Rare first non-Kinect game in years was too much to deliver. However, that Rare game compilation is an excellent deal.

Xbox One finally being backwards compatible was the best moment, along with the shot at PlayStation Now.

Yeah, it was pretty shit.

I'm not even sure how I feel about the new Star Fox. I thought it looked kind of fun until they went on about the awful Wii U controller. If that's the only controller that works with the game it will honestly kill my interest.

Yoshi's Woolly World could be okay but looks like it will be easy to the point that it becomes unenjoyable. Hopefully I'm wrong about that.

Mario Maker still looks fun.

Zelda Wii U will probably be a launch for NX and one of the last games released for Wii U, like Twilight Princess was for Wii and GC. I don't know what to think about that 3DS Zelda game. I mean, I actually enjoyed Four Swords Adventures with a friend, but this...I don't know. Everything about it just looks really phoned in and mediocre. A lot of that feeling probably comes from the art style so I'm gonna try to withhold judgment until I know more about it, but right now I'm not feeling it.

Tetra had better be available as DLC for HW on Wii U. If she's a 3DS exclusive for no reason other than trying to get me to buy the game again I'm gonna be pissed.

I was hyped as fuck when they showed Paper Jam but then I realized it was mixing the M&L series with Sticker Star, not the traditional Paper Mario gameplay. Huge disappointment.

I'm not really interested in anything else that was shown, but that Fire Emblem x Persona thing was embarrassing to watch.

I'm really not trying to be overly negative here, but I just found the whole thing to be really disappointing.

Wait, where did they say it was by Platinum? That sounds like bullshit. It's way too slow and reserved to be by Platinum. I want it, but it's not happening.

As for StarFox0 as a whole (there's a pearl harbor joke in there) I'm not sure how I feel about it. I love StarFox, it's my favorite series (not sure why since only 64 was truly remarkable), but something here feels off. It seems a bit too slow to me and I'm not sure I like the idea of moving around a tablet to shoot while you can keep gliding in place. It seems too easy. The pace also seems really damn slow. As far as the ship designs go I admire them for going back to the basic 64 look, but it just doesn't feel right here. I wish they would have gone a little more hard scifi like they did in Assault. This sort of feels like a step backwards. It also seemed kind of dull and lifeless to me (almost like a beta). It just doesn't have that energy that SF, 64, Assault and even Command and Adventures had.

As for the whole "It's not a sequel or a reboot" I don't know what it is then unless it's a prequel or an alternate universe or something. SF is one of the very VERY few franchises in Nintendos arsonel that actually had story progression and development from game to game despite StarFox, StarFox64, and now this seemingly resetting everything.

It also appears as though Krystal got the axe from what we've seen this far which I find slightly comical. If this truly is them going back to formula to reset things and move forward with a clean slate, great. I just have my reservations about it.

Personally, I think Dreams the most exciting thing I saw from Sony, making me consider actually getting a PS4 just to play it. Main thing I ran into with Little Big Planet was that I'd know how to start something but couldn't think of a satisfying way to make it into a complete level, so I like the whole shared dreamscape idea it has that lets people make a fragment and let it be part of a greater environ.

Unraveled, incidentally, didn't make me think of LBP just because it's supposedly made to be a more somber/emotional thing in a metaphorical kind of way. What with tying together things that represent memories and someone's past, as opposed to the imagination and creating.

What the fuck are you doing?
There's so much shit in this game. Just the amount of fucking enemy models you'll have to make. There's no cutting costs by using palette swaps, like in any game of later eras where modeling has become so much more involved and expensive. There's like a trillion unique enemies. and all the fucking mini games. And many of the areas don't work when translated 1:1 to 3D, because they totally fucked with scale and perspective. Just making fucking Midgar should cost as much as making a completely new mainline FF.
Fucking hell.

FF7R is going to make Squeenix a MOTHERFUCKING SHITLOAD of money. Shit, I'm thinking about buying it when it comes out, and I don't even fucking own a PS4. Whatever the game costs to make, Squeenix will likely make it back—or at least come close. Squeenix wouldn't be sinking costs into this game if the higher-ups thought they wouldn't make bank with it.

And I highly doubt Squeenix is going to do a 1:1 remake of the game down to every last detail. They’re going to adapt and change whatever is necessary for things to work in a “proportionally correct” fully-3D world; they’re also likely to cut out or rework a fair amount of the story, too. (God knows Barrett could use a whole new script, and this would give Squeenix the chance to make Yuffie and Vincent part of the story instead of just “bonus” characters.)

This isn’t gonna be some half-assed “slap a fresh coat of paint on it” HD remaster or a weak-ass cash-grab that everyone forgets about in a day. This is likely to be as “definitive” a version of FF7 as we’ll ever see—a version no longer hampered by the limitations of design and technology that plagued the original game. I remain cautious about this project and reserve the right to withdraw any positive feelings I have for it upon seeing what Squeenix does with it; for now, I remain optimistic about where this project is headed.

And frankly, I want to see how Squeenix portrays Aerith’s death this time around.

This has built up HL3 levels of hype at this point. Plus, there's a lot at stake here. Think about it, Ocarina of Time 3D is barely a remake. If Nintendo had completely remade the game like if it were made today, there'd be a shitload of risks they'd have to take, and a LOT to live up to, since OoT is one of the greatest games ever made. No, shut up. It is. And so is FF7. I don't care what you think about the actual games, the fact is they've had an almost incalculable impact on the entire industry.

So to remake something like FF7, they have to not only live up to the original, but surpass it, and not alienate their fans and ruin their image with both the general public and any potential investors that might look at the remake, think it's not very good, and say "Well, they're just not what they used to be." And be scared away from buying SE games ever again. This is not just any remake, or any game. This is not something they can just brush off and say "Oh well, play the original, better luck next time." This is the game that will decide SE's entire future.

If Black Mesa was made by Valve, and not fans, there would probably be an equal amount of hype. Because at the end of the day, it's an interpretation by fans, not the vision of the original creators. I have faith that SE can pull this off, because according to that trailer, all of the old team is coming back to man the helm.

I have to say, despite the performances being wooded at times, Square Enix delivered a great E3 show. It wasn't Western driven as some expected it to be; there was a nice balance of Western and Japanese games. And Nier getting a sequel was a delightful surprise. There's no financial reason why Nier 2 should exist, but Square Enix is moving forward with it because it's what fans want. On top of that, it's a Nier game developed by Platinum Games!

Also, as looked down upon as mobile games are, Lara Croft Go and Kingdom Hearts Unchained actually looked charming. The end announcement of Square Enix creating a JRPG studio to produce JRPGs shows how far the company has come. Square Enix is really getting back to its former glory.

And this is the most important aspect of FF7R: the people who “ran the show” then are the same people “running the show” now…just with 18 years of added experience working on games under their belt. They’re not gonna want to ruin the magic of their original game with a remake that doesn’t do the original justice. The FF7R crew has resources and knowledge they didn’t have 18 years ago; they’ll use both to create an FF7 that was likely closer to their original vision than the PSOne could’ve ever allowed them to reach—the “definitive” FF7.

All FF7 needs to do is to piss off Belts and Zippers by having Cloud perfectly dress up as his wifu, Lightning, and whoever voices him needs to do their best pissed off Ali Hillis impersonation.

Fallout 4 looks like Beth has admitted that they can't really write a Main Story worth shit and are focusing more on showing off more side activities that you can get lost wasting hundreds of hours doing as you forget about saving Tamriel/The Wasteland. There will probably be lots of bugs, but what matters is the specs for PC and if Todd makes another deal with the devil to turn Beth.net into some extra slice of DRM or announces late in September that Fallout 4 is Win 10 exclusive. Still mad about about what they did with FO3.

They probably think it's "cultural appropriation", as if things like wearing buckskins or braiding your hair is a custom sacred or unique to Native American tribespeople in the same way that, say, war bonnets and two-spirit identities are. I hate what Tumblr has done to that term. It's a real thing, for stuff like that early 2000's Kabbalah craze which basically treated a Jewish tradition like an aesthetic or hardcore wiggers, but they take it waaay out of control to describe things like white people bellydancing or wearing kimonos and consuming sushi.

For fuck's sake I've seen someone unironically claim that white people listening to Bohemian Rhapsody is appropriation because Freddy Mercury was Parsi (ignoring for now the murky issue of how people of Iranian descent self-identify), notwithstanding the fact that the song is a commercial product made for consumption by the British public (who is primarily white) and therefore doesn't even come close to counting.

If FF7R is as successful as it is clearly going to be... does that mean Squeenix will remake other Final Fantasys?

Like, HD Polygonal remake of Final Fantasy 3/6?

Nope. VII is a very unique case. No other Final Fantasy had such an impact on the shape of videogames today.

Yeah, the director of the FFVII remake already said that he noticed that everything up to 7 has been remade but 5 and 6 and that he thinks he would really like to get to those. And even before that, 5 and 6 were mentioned as targets for a remake in the style of FF3DS and FF4DS but that the systems couldn't handle what they would want to do.

So I'd say a 5 and a 6 remake are fairly likely. Don't know about 8 or 9.

And 7 was a unique case in terms of design with the SD characters outside of battle and the normally-proportioned characters in battle. It made for an odd disconnect when watching cutscenes that involved one design and cutscenes that involved the other. 7 is a chance for Squeenix to fix that issue - one neither 8 nor 9 had, if I recall - by creating a unified design for the game.

Agreed. I LIKE the aesthetic and I still think it feels quite empty. Especially compared to the GC's Assault. Which, for whatever faults it had, had a brilliant opening sequence.

Just dissecting that and comparing it to the more recent space mission in Platinum Fox.
But honestly I consider it nitpicking on my part - I'm really excited for the game so far.

Fuck you to anyone who thinks GT Live's reaction to FF7R and Shenmue 3 was unprofessional.

Nobody thinks it was unprofessional. Just some think that not all of it was genuine. The dude sobbing at Shenmue 3? Sure. The dude jumping up and down on his chair when he already said in a previous video that he doesn't even care if 7 gets remade? Seems a bit hokey.
And if you're talking about Giant Bomb being unfazed by the thing, remember that most of them were already old dudes when 7 came out and already didn't care for the original in the first place. Imagine your reaction at a shiny Twilight Princess remake 15 years from now. I bet your first reaction would be a dissapointed "Man, THAT's the one they choose to remake?"
It's sad that the Giant Bomb commentary actually gets a bit dull at times, because they've already seen a million big promises disappear in development hell forever and they've become so cynical that the most reaction you get out of them is a shrug and a mite B cool. But at the same time it means that they hardly get swept up in hype and remain analytical, which I appreciate.

It's supposed to play more like the older Hitman games, yes. But it also has a massive open world and the way that you get hits is actually via a tiny patch on a set real time date that seeds the target in your world and gives you a small sheet of information about them. Then you have until the next patch hits to find and kill your target. There's still a few set story targets, but most of the game will be that.

Depends on the game. Some games, 30 FPS is the price you pay for pushing the limits of console hardware. Other games, the developers could get to 60 FPS, but it would mean expending resources on optimization when they'd rather spend them elsewhere.

What's the worst is when they build the game such that it bugs the fuck out if it runs faster than 30 FPS, so modders can't easily unshackle the framerate.

I didn't see unraveled as being like Little Big Planet. It's a walk through someone's past via the things they interacted with as performed by a personification of memory/emotion, which I think will feel much different than a world of build-a-level shenanigans with a dress-up-able personification of creativity. Same base material, different usage. Could have maybe been implemented in LBP, though, but it'd stick out as an atypical level design... Which for the purposes of LBP is in fact a very good thing, but for Unraveled it could limit the potential audience a bit.

Really? Because from what I heard he wasn't even responsible for that. Just drew the concept art for it, in the same way that Amano did the concept artwork for FF9 even though someone else was responsible for the actual designs.

Funnily enough, I think Nomura did the designs for FF9.

I think Nomura gets a lot of undeserved hate. Many of the Final Fantasies he gets blamed for he was only the character designer for, and he was cleaning up Amano's designs even when Amano was their signature artist....and the thing is, Nomura is flat out a better character designer than Amano, even though Amano is a better artist. Nomura's designs are recognizable from far away and have unique silhouettes and all the other things that really make for good designs, and as beautiful as Amano's art is, it's hard as hell to tell which character you're looking at in any of his pictures of characters without a description. As a concept artist, Amano's great. As a character designer? Not so much.

Plus, even if you hate Nomura's influence on Final Fantasy, he's responsible for TWEWY, which is a pretty strong contender for the best game Squenix ever made.

He does still do little snippets of that sort of comedy:

He mentioned in a GAF thread that he wanted to move away from the redubs because they were typecasting him as more of a bitter cynical contrarian than he actually was, and he wanted some licence to be genuinely enthused in childlike wonderment at certain gaming things. Not a bad sentiment in this Youtube Personality age, I'd argue.
