    I’m currently playing The Old Republic.
    And I don’t know what everyone has or had against it.
    It’s almost like I’m playing a new KotoR and the Quests aren’t “Bring 50 bear asses” like in 99% of all other MMORPGs.
    The dialogue system makes it a lot better than other MMORPGs, too.

    • Charlottes Guardian

      The old republic was just a big let down for me. :( I was going for guild wars 2 for a while but eventually hit the wall and needed something fresh. For me, between The Old Republic and Tera, Tera wins hands down. So I would reccomend Tera if you’re looking for a good free to play MMO. Or GW2 if you’re willing to shell out 60$.

      Just my two cents ^-^

      • xMCXx

        I’m not going to play games which force me to pay every month.
        GW2 is just once, right?

        • Charlottes Guardian

          Yes sir, just once :D

          • xMCXx

            Might check it out, then, if I find some friends to play it with me.

        • Kobracon

          Tera is free

  • Tac-Mex

    I hate the Xbone

    • xMCXx

      Well, it gives us enough reasons.

    • new_tradition

      Personally for me, the system was never in my radar, so I can’t really say I hate it. More about ambivalence.

      I will say, I feel really sorry for the people who were waiting on news about the XBOX One and now know what’s it about.

      Game exclusives are a powerful influence when buying a system, so it’s not as easy as saying “just don’t buy it”, but I sincerely hope expected launch-first year sales are terrible to the point Mircrosoft releases some patch that basically negates all those…features >.>

  • http://twitter.com/M_Demolish Demolish

    many games for ps4,i cant wait 2 bought one.<3

  • http://xcite79.1up.com Keegs79

    Next week is awesome! We get to see more and hear about new games coming on the PS3/PS4 and hear about the new Mario Games, and a lot of great third party games. The Man of Steel is going to be in theaters and The Last of Us will come out! Hot week! :)

  • z_merquise

    “All aboard the bullet hype train”?

    Is that what the pic above is all about?

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      That’s the idea, yeah. =P

      • Tetsu

        I like it!

    • xMCXx

      Won’t be pretty if it derails. :p

    • Sae-Won Yoon

      For lack of originality;

      My body is so ready.

  • Tac-Mex

    I want Versus XIII (XV) so bad for PS4

    • Charlottes Guardian

      You and me both.

    • new_tradition

      I want it on the PS3 at least, tbh. I’ve been waiting years to be able to play that, and I know it’ll be a while before I reasonably want a PS4 (aside from pricing, my backlog is huuuuge xD)

      I could sort of see them release a “Final Mix” version for the PS4 a year or so later with extras plus the expected higher resolution in terms of graphics and what not, but I want the core game on the system it was originally announced for :3

      Also: Personally, I hope that revealed PS4 FF game isn’t Versus. I want something totally new. Related to Agni’s Philosphy wouldn’t bother me, but I’d like to see them finally move away from the FNC mythology with a new numbered entry.

      • LordKaiser

        Same here. I waited a lot for it to go to a console I don’t want to buy yet.

    • Tetsu

      I was hoping deep down that the reason Lightning Returns was delayed here in North America was because Versus was gonna be a PS4 launch title, which would be phenomenal. And if all goes well it’ll be a cross-generation release.

  • bloodiOS

    Just watched The Purge. It started out promising, progressed pretty nicely, but then just drifted off. The end feels rather… meh as the result of that. Can’t help but think that the plot would’ve worked better as a game… I don’t know, I felt that the premises could be better incorporated in a bigger larger plot that spans across hours (something that movies can’t afford.)

  • DesmaX

    I’m sad that I’ll not be able to watch the first hour of Sony conference… But, hey, It’s been a long time since I was hyped for E3. Hope they’ll show something cool (Like a good looking FF).

    • Nice Boat

      When is it the conference?

      • Tetsu

        June 10th 9:PM EDT/6:PM PDT

    • Tetsu

      When I’ve missed things in previous years, I just try to navigate whatever stream capture sites may have it without reading any articles or looking at any pictures, once you know the page it’s on, just straight shot to it to avoid spoilers. I’ve seen console unveils this way lol.

  • bloodiOS

    I’m excited for next week. Watch Man of Steel and play The Last of Us afterward will be my aim for next Friday. Of course, I wouldn’t forget E3 events in between.

  • jujubee88

    Hey guys, the PS4 dualshock in action and PS4 console (at least the dev kit version) just got uploaded to youtube. Check it out! Also, the game being demoed makes gnarly cool use of the LED lightbar!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Q_lMgbzMO4s

    • Elvick

      Seeing that makes the lightbar make so much more sense. From pictures it looked like the lightbar was on the ‘back’ so you couldn’t really see it when holding it. (though that might just be cause it’s a devkit…)

      Now I’m more into that addition on the controller. Also like their use of the touchpad.

      • jujubee88

        If while gaming normally on a DS3 and you see the stuff nearer the triggers, than you should be able to see the lightbar.

        Even than, you don’t really need to look right at the vicinity lightbar to notice the surrounding light is gives off. (you will probably see the light bounce off your index fingers in the ambient light settings of your room during the day)

      That’s pretty cool.

      • jujubee88

        Yup! Sony always makes neat tech. ^^

    • Kobracon

      Dayum…

    • PrinceHeir

      the console is at the back of the TV!!!!!

      love the controller, looks sexy as hell!!!

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    Watching the more recent anime has gotten……odd.

    Here’s what I mean; Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge is about a boy who comes from a lineage of muderers who falls in love with a girl with really, REALLY long hair. I’ll let you guess what fetish is in play here.

    Photo kano (that psp/vita game): Is strangely heart-warming despite the protagonist being seen as a voyeur taking photos of almost every girl in his school.

    Maou-Sama!: A demon lord is working part time at a McDonalds lookalike while balancing his pay and taking over the world.

    and finally, Valrave the Liberator:………I honestly got nothing. It’s that strange.

    • DarthBrian

      I like Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge. It’s cute. ^_^

    • xMCXx

      That’s the reason I don’t watch every anime. xD
      Most of them are just mindless fanservice and fetish fuel.
      That’s why I’m happy for: Shingeki no Kyojin! :D

      • Sae-Won Yoon

        I can acknowledge that a number of anime is somewhat fetishistic, But even certain shows that have fanservice surprisingly have a bit something more if given the patience.

        Anyway, I just caught up to the manga,
        It’s actually beginning to grow on me a bit..Ymir and Ristia are my two more favorable characters,

    • bloodiOS

      I recommend that you watch Aku no Hana (unless you’ve already did.)

      • Sae-Won Yoon

        Way ahead of you. Nakamura is the more interesting of characters, Especially her psyche and outlook on everyday life.

        • bloodiOS

          Say, is the anime any good? Truth is, I’ve only been reading the manga so I don’t know if its a good adaptation or not.

          • Sae-Won Yoon

            Personally, the whole rotoscoping doesn’t bother me. Despite the 13-episode run it does stick the manga well enough. It does good at building tension and atmosphere, just like a thriller. I say watch the first episode or two and see where to go from there.

    • Kobracon

      I love Valvrave solely because its one of the rare super robot shows in recent times. The animations pretty good and I quite like the character designs. It also helps that Valvrave is a hell of a cool mech

  • DarthBrian

    HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGG!!!

    • xMCXx

      Wow.
      You know what? I almost believe that. xD

    • http://twitter.com/GNPixie Lynx

      Well, I’ll be damned.

      SENSE THIS DOES MAKE.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      this shit is getting dumb…

    • Kobracon

      It IS kinda suspect as well that during the Pre-E3 thing, they didn’t show any examples of Kiefer voicing Snake. Just a scene where we see him with the metal balls making Snake’s face follow his movements.

    • Awnye

      Sutherland & Hayter cosplaying as Solid & Liquid snake will be, hands down, THE greatest moment of E3 for me. They could announce Kingdom Hearts 3 on the Dreamcast 2, and it wouldn’t even compare in epicness for me.

    • Nice Boat

      Weird thing is that Koji already gave a reason to why Otsuka kept voicing Big Boss in Japanese and seems legit. Also considering Hayter’s work in MGS4 and PW it seems like a rational change

  • Tetsu

    E3…SO CLOSE!

    I have monday off, but not tuesday :/

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    A few things come to mind
    E3, The Last of US, Tales o Xillia, Dragons Crown, and hoping that for F@@ms sake SqUare shows us “Final Fantasy Versus XIII” i mean FFXV running on PS4 hardware with a bloody release date. And a Kingdom Hearts III trailer all showing at the SONY conference.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Long tough week for me. Gotta work this weekend too. I’ll be here to cover e3 on Gematsu unless some emergency happens most of next week.

    I’m very excited about it! I hope everyone that can, joins in via the comment section. We plan to do live comments of sorts this year. I think more details will be available in a post tomorrow. Keep an eye out for it. :)

    I also have planned a contest or giveaway of sorts. I’d like to start doing this more often. I’m going to need some ideas for prizes.

    Anyone have some suggestions? I think we might have the contest or giveaway later in August, or maybe September. It’s not set in stone just yet. =)

    Edit : Prize ideas more or less = games.

    The prizes will be actual games. I plan for two or three members of our community to win a new game. I just need some ideas for the game(s).

    • Kobracon

      Wow thats pretty cool if you can get games. Be warned that some of us are from all over, so either you might have to limit the winners or find some way to compensate for shipping.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        I know about the shipping costs. I’ve ran into them using ebay quite often. xD

        I’m not going to limit the winners though, that’s pretty lame. If they can play whatever the game is, and they win, I’ll pay the shipping.

        It’s also why the prize can’t be some big huge thing. Something heavy could cost like $100 or more to ship outside of the USA. Yikes!

        • MosquitoLemon

          Considering certain country’s customs restrictions, you might end up paying that much anyway. I hear you can get around it sometimes by declaring the goods a ‘gift’, or low-balling the value, but you don’t want to take a risk and have their prize lost in customs forever.

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            That would really suck. It’s not something I’m expecting to happen though.

            • MosquitoLemon

              Right, just saying there’s stuff to consider besides shipping (I know this because my Canadian friends are constantly asking me to smuggle stuff across the border rather than ship it). I’m sure if it gets to that point you can find someone that can help work the system.

              • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                Hopefully! Thanks for the tip though. =)

        • Kobracon

          That is commendable. Respect *bumps chest twice* *peace sign*

    • PrinceHeir

      thanks Zero :D

      i hope you enjoy the E3 and give updates for us ^^

      i’ll be watching!!!!

  • shogunknight

    Monday cant just come soon enough. I hope things would be cleared up during this years E3 though, but Sonys live conference is around 1 a.m. (tuesday) in my place…..:(

  • MosquitoLemon

    OK this is the last Japan thing I’ll say – I rode the bullet train.

    Anyway, I’ve been enjoying my favorite game of all time quite a bit lately, as well as some Sengoku Basara 1 (6 characters to go, I believe), but when I have time only for portables, I’ve been playing the legendary PC classic, Tengai Makyou II for the first time. All I can say is wow, it is to Dragon Quest what Okami is to Zelda. It’s really sad that so few JRPGs have exploration to this extent (outside of the Metal Max series, I can think of none).

  • minhkira

    Hopefully PS4 will become a Legend White Knight.
    No online requirement to play offline, no fee chareging on used games, no DRM…
    To help PlayStation comeback, help us have a GREATEST CONSOLE in the battlefiled with PS4 reveal: price, launch titles and launch date this Winter.

    WE ARE PLAYSTATION NATION.

  • Kobracon

    This discussion area is going to explode next week. Let us all prepare for that.

  • Ladius

    Namco confirmed both editions of Tales of Xillia (Limited Edition and
    Collector’s Edition) will have the preorder costumes DLCs.

    Since lots of people here raged about the assumed lack of DLCs in the CE and canceled their preorders, it would be great if Gematsu could make a
    news post about this matter in order to clarify things.

    http://www.abyssalchronicles.com/?fn_mode=comments&fn_id=1102

    http://www.talesunion.com/news/tales-of-xillia-collectors-edition-will-include-dlc-costumes–2243.html

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2013-06-06/tales-of-xillia-latest-english-trailer-previews-ufotable-animation

    • PrinceHeir

      thanks :D

      didn’t even know the LE had some DLC costumes

      will make my collector’s edition a nice warm welcome indeed ^^

  • LordKaiser

    That damn FFXIII trilogy has hold back Versus XIII in a significant way.

    About Xbox One, not even a Lost Odyssey 2 can save it now. No mater how much they change the policy it’s still restrictive so I don’t see a point into buying this DRM brick. If Sony is smart they won’t follow M$ steps. We’ll see on the E3.

    I got 2 games reserved:

    Dragon’s Crown and Tales of Xillia but…. What game I should play first? both comes the same day.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      you do understand that square themselves stated that all their time was put into 14 ARR and not 13 right?

      • LordKaiser

        Most of FFXIV ARR was outsourced. but the previous version did hold back a lot.

    • Azuardo

      FF13 games were handled by different teams than the one making Versus. There’s no way the FF13 games had any effect on Versus’ development (certainly nothing drastic, if at all). If anything, they may have forced a trilogy due to the very fact Versus wasn’t ever coming out any time soon.

    • Tetsu

      I’ve got DC and ToX reserved as well.

      I’m planning on starting Tales of Xillia, and whenever i save my game and turn it off for the first time I’ll start up Dragon’s Crown and play until I save and turn it off.

      Rinse and repeat.

      The games are different enough that you can dedicate alternating time to them me thinks. But if your worried that Tales of Xillia may take up too much time for you to get around to Dragon’s Crown, than I’d start Dragon’s Crown first, I’d imagine it’s a shorter game.

      Tales of Xillia is probably a much easier game, so that can be your chillax game, and Dragon’s could be your hardcore experience.
      Not sure how you treat either genre though, just thoughts that were running through my head :)

    • PrinceHeir

      you didn’t get Killer is Dead :(

      i have all three reserve along with SMT4 and MGS HD Collection(both US/JPN)

      gonna be an amazing summer for me!

  • LordKaiser

    When is Gun Gale Online released?

  • Skeletor

    Polygon gave State of Decay on XBLA, (a mediocre open world zombie game) an 85% but also gave The Last of Us a 75%

    Yep. Thats journalistic credibility right there.

    • dior

      State of Decay mediocre? You’re mostly upset that Last of Us got a lower score? That sounds more like you being a fanboy, I have State of Decay and it’s a great game.

      • Skeletor

        And anyone in their right mind should be upset. State of Decay is NOT a better game than Last of Us. FACT.
        Apparently though Remember Me is also a better game than Last of Us according to the same source though so cling to that as the definitive word on things.

        I understand that you like and enjoy State of Decay and in comparison to the typical Xbox fare, (TV apps, Pizza apps, Kinect drivel, and for 2013 absolutely NOTHING of worth) it is a fantastic game. But when comparing to the likes of games that release REGULARLY on Sony’s platforms, State of Decay is absolutely medicore.

        Put it this way, a game that scores 7’s as a Sony exclusive would easily score 9’s as an xbox exclusive.

        A gas station microwave burrito is nasty to you and I but take that burrito to a starving child in Ethiopia and they’ll eat it like the finest gourmet meal theyve ever seen.

        Consider the audience. Then tell how amazing State of Decay is.

        • DarthBrian

          Did the same guy who reviewed Remember Me also review The Last of Us?

        • dior

          You have unintelligent logic. Stop it.

        • GetOffMy_Lawn

          You’ve played and completed both State of Decay and The Last of Us, yes? After all that is the only way you could say The Last of Us is better.
          This whole chain of your comments seems incredibly immature, and nothing more than your own (I hate this term, but…) fanboyism.

    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

      I’ll be careful with Polygon if I were you…

      Polygon gave Metro Last Light a higher score despite it has the same tone as TLOU and I recall that game has issues as well… That and Remember Me got a 9 from Polygon…

      • Skeletor

        Oh its hate for hits. I didnt give them so much as a click of the mouse. Their 9 for remember me is the opposite of hate for hits but still the same end goal. Stand out from the pack with a vastly different score and you will be noticed. Most people lack Skeletors superior self control and click on that site out of sheer curiosity and that is how Polygon gets paid by their sponsors.

        • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

          It’s their opinions and I respect that… But standing out from the pack just for the sake of hits doesn’t sound right to me…

          I don’t care if TLOU got less than 5 but judging their previous reviews on other games, they lost credibility in my eyes…

          I checked back on their Remember Me review, it says 8 which used to be 9… In the review, “Remember Me’s frustration is offset by the world and characters that Dontnod has built.” Despite the clearly written line there, it still got a high score… Lesson: Never take anything for granted from Polygon…

    • bloodiOS

      A written review is just a highly elaborated form of a reviewer’s opinion of that particular game. So, what does it matter that one opinion happened to disagree with yours? No matter how we slice it, it’s just one opinion.

      • Skeletor

        Very tired of this excuse being the fallback for wack ass “journalism”.

        Hate for hits is what that review was/is. Nothing more. Nothing less. It is absolutely not valid.

        • bloodiOS

          If it’s BS then ignore it. You just said it’s hate for hits, then feeling pissed off at it is exactly what they want isn’t it? Well, I personally never cared all that much about reviews since I never read them anyway. So I suppose I wouldn’t understand how you feel.

    • xMCXx

      No, an opinion is an opinion.
      But some think they have to give an overly hyped game a “not so good” review, just to spite other people.

  • Tetsu

    OMG I feel like a dumbass, BUT I’m glad I feel like a dumbass lol.

    Because, this whole time for a few weeks I thought Sony’s conference was on June 11th, and it’s not, it’s on monday, and I have monday off, and i’m…happy :)

    Lol sorry, just realizing this, I am pretty stoked to have the whole day to watch coverage.

  • Locksus

    Blah, I haven’t really been playing anything as of late except a little bit of Shogun 2 which is a great game. I’m just waiting for my pay so I can get a 3DS, Animal Crossing, OoT3D and FE:A ASAP. I’m really hyped.
    I’m gonna ask for some friend codes once I get the system :p

    It’d be nice to get a Vita at some point, but it has no games of interest at the moment. Well, Gravity Rush does look cool, but I won’t be spending a few hundred euros just to play one game.

    • Skeletor

      Why you no saving moneys for PS4?!?!?

      Shame on you!

      • Locksus

        Hm, looks like Disqus is messing up again and didn’t send my earlier post, but if it did, my apologies for this repost.

        I hardly ever buy any console or system or release, because pretty much every system in existence has had a bad launch lineup or pretty much nogames for the first year or so. I won’t be buying PS4 on release either, because at this point, I hardly know anything about it. Not its launch lineup, pricing and stuff like that. It’s just corporate dick sucking, in my opinion.

        And I will most likely buy a Wii U or upgrade my PC before buying a PS4, which I’ll probably get at some point.

        • LordKaiser

          Same here but in my case it sums up that it don’t have retro-compatibility with PS3.

        • xMCXx

          It’s a smart move to wait a while before purchasing a new system.
          I was contemplating on buying the Wii U, but I wanted to wait for a proper bundle.

          • Tetsu

            Yeah…I kinda regret getting my Wii U at launch, that’s still all i have still, launch games. I’m hoping Nintendo comes out with guns blazing at e3!

  • HassanJamal

    Man, im going to be free until September and i have nothing to do. Yes, im complaining bout being too free. Cant sleep early and am kept up for hours hoping to fall asleep. I cant work cause my dad and brother is using all the working cars we have. Gaming is starting to become unfulfilled for me. Is there something that can take up my time on the net? Are there legit online workplaces?

    • Tetsu

      Something to take up time on the net? Well besides internet porn (joke) there’s a plethora of anime if your into that, you can marathon shows for months.

      Online work places are kinda a scary affair, it’s a risky business, I’d say you’d have to talk to someone informed to even try to endeavor in that, otherwise you might be scammed.

      • HassanJamal

        Im not into most anime. Just mainstream ones like OP, Bleach, Naruto, FT, OPM.

  • 8ing mii 8ing u

    Capcom-san (joke) should consider including Samanosuke Akechi (Onimusha) & Jubei Yagyu (Onimusha 2) in Sengoku Basara 4.

    • Tetsu

      Capcom-san should consider including Samanosuke or Jubei in a new Onimusha game. PS4 would be a nice place for that to happen, it’s been too long since we’ve had an Onimusha game.

                Every review I’ve seen of that game is 0/10.

      It’s probably part of MS’ press conference :P

    So, uh… did we ever find out what happened to Harada or has everybody written it off as a PR stunt by now?

    Prize Idea from my comment below. http://gematsu.com/2013/06/open-forum-047#comment-922878958

    What do you all think about …

    Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix – The release date is confirmed here for September 10th. That would work out if this contest/giveaway idea I have takes place in late August early September.

    Does this sound like a nice pick? I’m planning for at least three different Gematsu users to win what everyone decides the prize to be. I’m also considering letting the first place winner pick a game of his/her choice.

    Thoughts? Please reply! I’m going to be posting this stuff until I get the prize picked out. =)

      I think PSN/Steam/Live/eshop cards would be better. That way the prize won’t be exclusive to one platform and you won’t have to ship it since you could just email them the code.

        Thanks for the reply. That’s something to consider.

    I hope SEGA mentions a PSO2 release date at E3 soon. This is another trailer.

  • new_tradition

    So apparently Tetsuya Nomura will be at E3

    Really, one person’s presence shouldn’t have such an effect on me, and yet… *_*

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Awesome day for e3! I’ve been going since 9 am on Monday and its currently 3:20 am (Tuesday) my time. I’m gonna take a bit of a break here before the Nintendo stuff starts.

    Looking forward to seeing all of you in the comments again soon! =)

      30 minutes to go! Cannot wait for the games!

    Sal, I have one question in my mind for quite a long time now, but always forget to ask you. What is the meaning behind both Scrawlfx (I know that it is a long time now for this name but I am curious about the meaning behind this one), and Gematsu?

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      There should probably be cool, noteworthy stories behind these questions, but here it is.

      I dunno, I just made ’em up.

      I dunno what I was thinking with ScrawlFX. That name was terrible.

      • Red-X

        Well, I like them both, so I am fine with either of the names. :)
