    when will bravely default collectors edition come on amazon for sale sigh.

  • RovCal

    when will nintendo or SE localize DQ 7 sigh.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Maybe never, maybe soon. There were some trademarks the other day, but don’t get your hopes up.

      • RovCal

        yeah i heard about them……………………………. hope its trueee

  • RovCal

    i cant get into persona 4 golden, its my first persona game. i am 7 hours in.. and to be honest i am forcing myself to play this game sigh.

    forcing myself cause everyone worships it,, so i really wanna get into it..
    maybe its cause i dont like modern day rpgs? i love dragon quest suikoden and old ffs….. and dark cloud and wild arms……….

    • adhesive

      Yeah, Persona 4 has a really slow opening, but it should get better later on. Persona 3 is the opposite, where it has a strong opening but it just drags on and on for months.

      I don’t think either P3 or P4 are particularly good games, but I know I’m in the minority on this site.

      • RovCal

        i see i guess i am like u. but i will play it cause of the love it gets from most people.

  • RSene

    Hello, Forum!

    • Azuardo

      Hiya. Y’ite, yeah?

  • $83030187

    Anyone else playing A Link Between Worlds?

    • RovCal

      SOOOOOnn, when i buy my 3ds with bravely default

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Yup it ish awshum. <3

    • McPoo

      Yeah, just starting the third dungeon. I definitely much prefer 2D Zelda games, I really don’t find the 3D ones much fun anymore.

      ALBW is really fun though, the music and 3D effect are great too.

    • DarthBrian

      Just bought a PS4 and three games. I have no monies left. Zelda will have to wait. :(

      Besides, I’m still playing Pokemon. *shrug*

      • $83030187

        How are you liking it? I had one pre-ordered for a long time, but I ended up bailing on it because there are still a lot of current-gen games I want.

        • DarthBrian

          It’s awesome. :)

          LEGO Marvel has been crashing on me though. :(

          It’s infrequent but still annoying. :(

          Other than that, the system is great. :)

    • Elvick

      No, I’ll get it eventually though.

  • Dark_N11

    leaked pic made it way through the net…

    • Raiyu

      What am I looking at?

      • adhesive

        Parasaito Ivu

      • KingNigma

        Parasite Eve teaser I’m guessing.

      • Raiyu

        Oh no wonder, I’ve never played PE…where did you find find it?

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      New Parasite Eve game? OMG! I’m a big fan of the series and Aya. I sure hope it is a new game. I’d really be interested to see them make a new PE for next gen consoles.

      • Elvick

        I hope it’s more like the first one. I need to really sit down and play PE2 one of these days. I just hate the tank controls… I loved the first game because it was so different from what I had played before. PE2’s character movement sucked, it was like Resident Evil and I hated that. D:

        I’m sure the story was great though so I need to get on that.

        And need to play 3rd Birthday one of these days.

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          Agreed. I wasn’t a huge fan of PE2. I still haven’t played the 3rd birthday either. I really should.

          • Elvick

            I have it, I was very supportive of SE on PSP. I loved what they did on there. <3 (shame it didn't translate to PS Vita at all… xP)

            I hope there's a new one, that'd probably propel me to get around to it. :D And it would be awesome to see SE supporting the franchise.

  • RovCal

    i dont like xbone its fat, less powerful than the ps4, expensive and has an external battery -_-

    • Blizzaja

      I’m okay with the Xbox, but I’m not going to lie. I felt a little sick when I saw the Xbox One’s design, the white version looked really good though…

  • RSene

    So, the Crash image in the PS4 trailer was smartly done, don’t u think?

    • RovCal

      yeah lol, i really hope the rumors are true

      • RSene

        Indeed… I’m wondering if we can find other clues hidden in that trailer :)

    • Wolf Star

      We will find out on VGX next Saturday. Also I found this pic somewhere on amazon. It’s really cool :)

      • RSene

        where’s pic?

        • Wolf Star

          It’s posted here… Try to refresh the page.

      • DarkLegacy

        I hope they do make a Crash game for PS4

        • Wolf Star

          Yeah same here, I hope so too. Plus there are tons of rumors that Sony bought back crash from activision. Also can’t wait for next Saturday :) I hope they show FF XV..

          • DarkLegacy

            Yeah that was because Activision deleted Crash Bandicoot website I think. And next Saturday, I like to see more of XV hopefully

            • Wolf Star

              Yeah also please give us a release date for FFXV :3

              • DarkLegacy

                And make sure it doesn’t go to PC, otherwise we’ll be waiting longer

                • Blizzaja

                  We waited long enough!

                  • DarkLegacy

                    Exactly. And now it’s time to bring it out. I just remembered, that would’ve been in development for 8 years

              • EX+

                I’m not sure that FFXV will be appearing at the VGX. Spike TV and gametrailers are about the western games. Jump Festa (which is on the 21 of December) will most likely have a new FFXV trailer for us to see, most likely with a release window… I can’t think of when we’ll have an actual release date.

                • DarkLegacy

                  And that’s next month. And I’m starting to think that XV will be released July or August

                  • Wolf Star

                    I’ll be surprised at release date with 2014 on it. :D for XV

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Me too. We’ve all had enough of waiting and XV’s had enough of that too

                    • Wolf Star

                      Yeah 7 years of waiting.. Oh wait now it’s 8 in 2 months. Haha :) It’s been a long time and SE have been hogging lighting way to much. FF13-3 – February 11,2014
                      FF14 (Ps4)-2014
                      FFXV – (2014???).

                    • DarkLegacy

                      8 years is a lot. And now we bring it out sometime next year when we hopefully see a trailer at Jump Festa

                    • Wolf Star

                      The pic is amazing oh man can’t wait dude.. 8 years is long enough and I don’t want it to be 9 years.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      9 years?! Don’t say that. You’re starting to make me think that it’ll go to PC

                    • Wolf Star

                      lol I’m sure it will be 2014. Because there is no way that they stop FFXV for 13-3. Plus there is 2 seperate people working on different games. XV will be amazing.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Yeah 2014 for XV and 2015 for KH3. Speaking of KH3, I think I might want more of those Disney attraction based attacks like they did with Pirate Ship and Big Magic Mountain

                    • Wolf Star

                      Yeah also I would love then to put more attractions. It would be awesome also the train looks badass. Like litterely sora slashing the beast while on the train. :)

                    • DarkLegacy

                      After seeing Pirate Ship, it made me think that Port Royal would return because it was a ship lol. And seeing Sora on that train fighting Rock Titan, that made me think that Olympus Coliseum was going to return because Rock Titan was in the game

                • Blizzaja

                  *crosses fingers*

                • Wolf Star

                  I don’t know either, but we will have to wait and see. Even E3 2013 I got surprised how even FF Versus 13 (FFXV) got into E3 with a new trailer. There are many surprises we will see next week. Also VGX is going to be 3 hours long. There should be a big surprise there :)

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        lol Uhm that box art… heh it looks… to put it nicely… odd.

      • Blizzaja

        I miss Crash…

        • Wolf Star

          Same here dude :/

    • $83030187

      If they bring it back, and the debut trailer doesn’t start with the old “Created and developed by NAUGHTY DOG” I will be massively disappointed.

  • $83030187

    I’m going to be happy when this Persona tease stuff is over tomorrow/today. I need to know if I need a PS3 or not, and Ebay is going to have some nice Black Friday deals on them.

  • EX+

    Hey guys! So, I’ve been thinking.

    We have so many games to choose from for next-gen than we think we do.

    I’m especially looking forward to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Cyberpunk 2077, Watch_Dogs, Tom Clancy’s: The Division, Sleeping Dogs: Triad Wars, Mirror’s Edge 2, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Guilty Gear: Xrd, Lily Bergamo, Deep Down, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Next-gen Naruto, Mighty No.9, Shantae: Half Genie Hero, Zelda Wii U, Monolith Soft’s: X, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, Next-gen Persona, Final Fantasy XV (and it’s sequels) and Kingdom Hearts III.
    Long ass list, but here’s the awesome thing: most of this stuff was only announced this year. Imagine what we’ll be getting in a few years time, especially since the PS4 and XBO will receive optimization, driver updates and the PS4 even has 128 processors which aren’t functional yet (they might be for yielding, but the extra cores are not lasered off, so they have a chance of being activated), meaning better games.
    What next-gen games are you guys looking forward to?

    • RovCal

      i am going crazy for bravely default right now.

      i will buy ps4 when:

      ff15 comes or
      kh3 comes or
      next suikoden ( i wish) or
      next dark cloud (i wish) or
      next Ultimate marvel vs capcom or
      tekken.

    • $83030187

      The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt
      Cyberpunk 2077
      Dark Dreams Don’t Die (D4)
      Lily Bergamo
      Bayonetta 2
      Monolith Software’s RPG

      Those are the only next-gen exclusives I want right now. There are a lot of cross-gen games that I want to wait and see how they preform first.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      Guilty Gear xrd
      MGS:V and phantom pain

      Kingdom Hearts 3
      Sleeping dogs
      Watch dogs
      The Division

      Titian Fall (pc)
      Destiny

      Drive Club

      That’s about it honestly atm

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        *hugs* Hi Luna!~

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      From that list (because I can’t really remember many myself)… uhm… The Witcher 3, Watch Dogs, Mirror’s Edge 2, Possibly Lily Bergamo, MGSV:TPP (and GZ), MIght No.9 (though that is indie which is weird on this list, and there are plenty of other indie games I will be getting), Shantae: HGH, Zelda Wii U, Monolith’s X, SMTxFE, Persona (if there is one), FFXV, KHIII.

      Edit: Not on the list: Bayonetta 2, D4R (it counts), BD (also counts), FFXHD (counts… sort of), MK8, Possibly Uncharted 4.

      Again there is probably a lot more (including a lot of indie games) but I cannot remember every single one.

    • DarkLegacy

      That’s one big list. Here’s what I’m looking forward too.

      Final Fantasy XV(And the sequels)
      Kingdom Hearts III
      Drive Club
      Watch Dogs
      Metal Gear Solid V
      Mirror’s Edge 2
      The Division
      God Eater 2(If it even get’s localized)
      Crash Bandicoot(When it get’s announced)
      Hyperdymention Neptunia Rebirth 1 and 2(When it get’s localized)
      Danganropa: Trigger Happy Hovic(PS Vita)

      And that’s my list

      • Blizzaja

        I want all of those, but I haven’t played ANY MGS games. I don’t know about The Division either.

        • EX+

          If you haven’t seen it, I recommend you check it out.
          The gameplay and UI look awesome. It mixes awesome graphics and open world gameplay with an amazing physics engine. It’s being made by Ubisoft and is scheduled for release next year. It is an online game though.

          • Blizzaja

            I seen some of it, and I like it but I’m not sure if it will really be worth buying. I need to see a little more before i decide.

        • DarkLegacy

          I main ones are Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III and that’s the reason why I even brought a PS4. But I’ve played MGS 1 and 2 then I skipped 3(Which I’ve currently brought)and then I played 4

          • Blizzaja

            One of the reasons I bought the PS4 was just for KH3 and FFXV, I love and can’t wait for both!

            • DarkLegacy

              Me too. I hope they show of a footage to FFXV at Jump Festa, which should be next month

              • Blizzaja

                Can’t wait!

                • DarkLegacy

                  Yeah me too. Hopefully it’ll be at Jump Festa rather than E3 next year

            • Wolf Star

              Same here dude, I bought Ps4 because of Final Fantasy XV and KH3

      • Wolf Star

        Here’s what I’m looking Forward to for next gen Ps4 games.
        Final Fantasy XV (sequels also)
        Kingdom Hearts 3
        Tales of (PS4)
        Shadow of the beast
        Watch Dogs
        Mirrors edge 2
        The Division
        Infamous Second Son
        Uncharted (PS4)
        Persona 5 (if it ever gets announced)
        Sonic the hedgehog (PS4) (whenever it gets announced)
        Crash Bandicoot (PS4) (whenever it’s announced or ready)
        Danganropa: Trigger Happy Hovic (PS Vita)
        Hyperdymention Neptunia Rebirth 1 and 2 (Ps Vita) (wheneve it gets localized)
        Hyperdymention Neptuinia PP (Ps vita) (2014)
        Tales of Symphonia Chronicles (Ps3)
        Tales of Xillia 2 (PS3)
        That’s my list :)

        • DarkLegacy

          Nice list. I just added some of the games in my list too. I didn’t know that there was going to be a new Sonic game coming to PS4

          • Wolf Star

            Thanks I just added my list :D also no there’s not but they will announce one for Ps4 whenever Sega and Nintendo are done with the 3 sonic games. (1 more sonic exclusive is coming in 2014 for Wii U. 2 Nintendo exclusive sonic games are out of the door already)

    • Nightcore34

      Out of all those I only liked 4, so I’m planning to wait for more games such as next gen disgaea and who knows maybe a new Valkyria Chronicles although I’m not holding my breath, for now I’m just getting games for current gen that I’ve missed out on or just released.

    • AdamBoy64

      Well, there’s not a lot on next-gen that interests me at this stage. Perhaps because it’s one of my favourite series (Tales) won’t be heading to next-gen (is it current gen, yet?) for a while.

      Mighty No. 9 (I keep forgetting about it), and Super Mario 3D World (hasn’t yet been released here so I’ll list that while I can) – are the main two I’m looking forward to.

  • EX+

    I picked something up on FFXV:

    ‘Using the same technique that was utilized for Agni’s Philosophy, the team at Visual Works will create the base for those cutscenes and then drop them into Luminous Engine to run in real time. Everything seen in the E3 trailer was made using the current rendering engine and tools, but will eventually be moved entirely to Luminous as XV and that engine are being developed in tandem.’
    So the final game is going to be running on the luminous engine… that thing is going to look amazing.
    Seriously, this game (along with it’s sequels and KH3) will be the best games of the gen for me.

    • $83030187

      I haven’t liked a FF game since X-2. I really hope this does it for me.

  • DarthBrian

    Leaving today for my mom’s house for Thanksgiving (I live in California, she’s in Arizona). Driving there so I’m taking my PC with me, but I’m leaving my consoles behind, including my PS4. I’d like to take it but my mom doesn’t really have a good setup for HD gaming so it would be pointless to do so.

    Going to be there for a week-and-a-half.

    I’m going to miss my PS4 so much. T_T

  • syaznifaiq

    i dont know if anyone already post this news but i just wanna share something here that i just recently found out ..

    Tales PS4 games in the works, “no plans” for Xbox One .. here the link and quote from hideo baba himself

    http://www.vg247.com/2013/11/14/tales-ps4-games-in-the-works-no-plans-for-xbox-one/

  • http://twitter.com/M_Demolish Demolish

    i already have ps4 & I’m gonna bought Xbox one in first Dec :D

    but i still big big fan of #playstation <3.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Yikes… must be nice to have that much money to throw around. Anyways… what is the point in owning both a Xbox One and PS4. The Xbox One has only a handful of exclusive games… I guess that’d be why? That is a hard sell for me.

      • $83030187

        Because it will get more exclusive games in the future?

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          I cannot see there being more than a handful of exclusives, but maybe I am just blind. Unless there is a decent amount of exclusives (ones I want, even) it is just not feasible to me.

          • $83030187

            But it might be feasible for others. I plan on owning both a PS4 and an Xbone too.

            MS is bound to secure some great exclusives, even ones from JP developers (rumor is that they are working with Platinum on an exclusive title, and they are my favorite developer).

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              I will be waiting to see some exclusives then.

  • TheBlackRabbit

    Hey guys i got a quick question. Every year i go to the store an buy 2-3 games. That is the usual amount a game a year i get. How many games do you guys buy a year?

    • $83030187

      Not very many, though it usually varies.

      Like next year. My shopping list contains more games than I have bought in the past 2-3, maybe even 4, years combined.

      • TheBlackRabbit

        :0 whoa…what does your list look like sir?

        • $83030187

          I’m just going to list confirmed 2014 releases, but so far it’s

          Bravely Default
          MGSV Ground Zeroes
          BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma
          Drakengard 3
          Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2
          Dark Souls II
          Wolfenstein The New Order
          The Evil Within
          Final Fantasy X HD Remaster
          Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster
          Hatsune Miku Project Diva f
          DanganRonpa Trigger Happy Havoc
          Bayonetta 2
          Monolith Software’s X
          Hyper Light Drifter
          Child of Light
          Hotline Miami 2

          I’m probably missing a ton of indie games. Those are only on platforms I own too. I don’t have a PS4 or an Xbone yet.

          • TheBlackRabbit

            BBCP! :0 I have been watching so much game play from it over this entire week? i have seen several tournaments already as well!…..litchi is best character right now XD auto-block is good.

            lol xbone…..

            So many good games you have on the list! have my vote sir :D

            • $83030187

              I’m still a little bitter about BB, because I bought the first two games on 360, and now it’s suddenly PS3 exclusive.

              I’m still gonna get it, but it’s not high on my priority list right now because of that.

            • Blizzaja

              I want BlazBlue on PS4!

    • Azuardo

      Oh, quite a lot o.o I usually wait a year or more after a game comes out and then buy it at a low price, so I end up buying many cheap games every year, then the odd new release on top of that. I mean, adding up the games I’ve bought so far this year (including downloads), I’ve bought 23.

      But if you’re asking about brand new releases, that’s MUCH lower. In fact, I think I have only bought Zelda 3DS and will buy Bravely Default on Day One this year.

      As you can see, I buy most games on sale or used, which makes the difference.

      • TheBlackRabbit

        My lord…..23? Yea i was just referring to it as a whole. So 23 huh? thinking of picking up anymore soon?

        • Azuardo

          Just depends what goes on sale around Christmas time, right now, I guess. There’s still some games I want like BioShock Infinite, Beyond and DmC, so if they’re cheap in the holidays, I might get them (though I am tempted to try waiting since I have PS+…). I think right now, I actually have most of everything I want, and I don’t think there’s any more new releases this year I want (apart from the mentioned Bravely Default on Dec 6th – UK, y’see). So looks like I’m mostly good now!

          • TheBlackRabbit

            NICE would you say ps+ is worth it my friend? I’m still considering going past my 2-3 game limit this year. since a bunch of games are like *-12 bucks. like dead island, Valkyria chronicles :D

            • Azuardo

              Are you in North America or Europe? The thing is, over the past year or two, PS+ has been undeniably awesome in EU, whereas the US version hasn’t been quite as good. It’s still great, but the quality of games has generally been better in EU. That said, the price of games are cheapest in the US, so you can argue it balances itself out.

              It’s difficult to say right now how much PS+ is worth it because the PS4 is now here, and obviously you NEED PS+ to play online on that console… so the worrying thing is that the free games might not be as good as they have been in the past. You can sort of already see that – over the last 2 months, you can argue that the free games in EU have not been as good as before all that. So it makes you wonder if PS4 has meant the quality going down.

              What I can say is that PS+ has been the most amazing service in gaming, and it’s been 100% worth it being on it over the last year or so – even if you’re in the US, that still is the same case. It’s just that I really don’t know if the free PS3 games are going to get better now that PS4 is here. I really hope they do keep up the awesome quality, but you really have to wonder about that now…

              On the flip side… PS3 is still going to be supported, but maybe PS3 game sales will dip with the next gen here… So MAYBE, because games on PS3 won’t be selling as much any more, they will end up as freebies on PS+. That is definitely a possibility.

              I would say in the end, whatever happens, PS+ is worth it. It was always 100% worth it over the past year anyway, but even with the thoughts of worry about how good the free games will be now that PS4 is here, I still believe it is worth it if you’re a PS3 owner.

              Also, consider that you may yet end up a future buyer of the PS Vita and PS4 – so long as you’re a member of PS+, you will be able to download every single free game that goes up for all three PS consoles, and then when you do finally own those systems, you will have a bunch of free games to play.

              I personally love that feeling of always getting a bunch of free games each month. Even if they don’t always turn out fantastic, or you already own them, there will always be games that do pop on that you will enjoy. So long as you understand what you’re paying for – i.e. it’s basically a rental service for as long as you’re a member (but since we all need it for PS4 now, it’s kind of irrelevant unless you don’t plan to get a PS4 one day) – then it’s the best subscription service in gaming.

              That was a bit long, but I hope that helps :)

              • TheBlackRabbit

                wow thx for the awesome reply! it did help a a lot. hmm i might pick it up now, just to see the discounts an the like on it
                :D thx for the reply my buddy.

                • Azuardo

                  Good point! I forgot that you of course get discounts on games and other little things like beta access for certain games and such. It does vary what you get between US and EU versions, and I again wonder with PS4’s arrival if we’ll get such great discounts and betas as in the past, but yeah, there’s still a bit more to it than just free games.

                  Glad to have helped!

                  • TheBlackRabbit

                    I’m in us, and lower prices vs quality huh? Sounds fair i guess. Like i might import the new ps4/vita combo coming out in Europe soon!(Price not set yet)

                    Yea i really think it is a matter of price vs quality in the case of usaXeu

    • Reda

      I don’t know it depends on the year. Just now I bought my first games of the year: Fire Emblem Awakening and Rayman Legends. But next year I’ll probably get around 15 because I’m getting a WII U and I passed on the wii.

    • DichaTesoro

      I bought about 10 games this year, most were new releases. Not planning to buy any more this year. Last year, probably 15. Next year, I want Tales of Xillia 2 for sure, no other releases I can think of I’m that interested in but will probably pick up some used games I’ve been interested in then.

    • $18114340

      Thanks to bundles and digital discounts? I probably buy at least 20-30 games a year nowadays. I don’t really even have enough time to play all of them!

      As far as physical copies go, I kind of went overboard this year. I must have bought like 10 physical games alone in 2013. I might have to keep my wallet in my pants next year… but it’s hard when everything’s dirt-cheap if you wait. That’s how they always get you.

    • Gustavo

      Really? Sometimes I buy 2-3 games a week. lol

      • TheBlackRabbit

        I……..LOL Q~Q

      • TheBlackRabbit

        yea i can’t do that that sounds like a cigarette addiction XD

      That’s 37 for the lazy :D

      Those are just new games that have come out this year. I’ve gotten quite a few others that were preowned and/or on sale. While I have played most of the games I listed (some are still sealed up <..>

      [EDIT] I’m strongly considering buying The Wolf Among Us, so might as well consider that too :D

    • EX+

      I get about 2-3 games a month. Luckily for me, I’ve been getting deals with a few retailers.

    • Elvick

      A lot. I’ll just list off a few purchases this year. Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate (Vita), Tearaway, Ni no Kuni Limited Edition, Disgaea D2 Limited Edition, Tomb Raider (PS3), Beyond: Two Souls, The Last of Us, Guided Fate Paradox Limited Edition, Ys: Memories of Celceta Limited Edition (well, soon at least), Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMix, Rain, Puppeteer, Knack, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Killzone: Mercenary, Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition (Vita)…

      That’s just some of them.. I’d say I buy, at least one a week. Usually more with PSN games. Trying to cut back on digital games….

      Sometimes there’s overlap, so a few in one week but then I’ll try not to buy anything the next week. Summer and January are usually good times for me to chill out on buying stuff. :P

      • TheBlackRabbit

        wow god like list man, i’m impressed. You should take a picture of your library for the gematsu family! XD

        • Elvick

          I’ve been meaning to do that at some point.

          But I need to find a new home for PS3 games, since I put my PS4 where my PS3 used to be. And so PS4 games need to go there and my PS3 games need to go somewhere downstairs with my PS3.

          I’m super lazy. :p

    • AdamBoy64

      For me, I’d say the average is about 2 games every 3 months.

      That’s still purchasing them far faster than I’m playing them, so I’m hoping that’ll slow down.

      I always want to get first week sales for companies I want to support, though.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0ga3Et5Sw4

    ‘suppose I’ll put something KH-related here.
    Pretty sick beat, and I don’t even listen to Kayne.

    • Blizzaja

      Nice.

    • EX+

      That is sick!

  • EX+

    ‘Nomura has stated that Noctis’s eyes and hair change with his emotions, as well as different actions in battle. There will be a sub window that copies Noctis’s expression shown at the bottom of the screen, similar to Kingdom Hearts, but with more detail. ‘
    ‘Weapons will have some sort of customization element.’
    That sounds cool. I can’t wait to see the next chunk of footage. The graphics and gameplay are gonna look even better than the E3 version.

    • DarkLegacy

      Do you think that the next footage will be shown at Jump Festa?

      • EX+

        I’m almost 100% sure.
        By that time, LR:FFXIII and FFXHD would’ve have released in Japan. SE really wouldn’t have a choice.

        • DarkLegacy

          Yeah I hope so too. I don’t want to wait until E3 next year

    • Blizzaja

      How is that possible?! It already looked mind blowing enough!

      • EX+

        ‘Using the same technique that was utilized for Agni’s Philosophy, the team at Visual Works will create the base for those cutscenes and then drop them into Luminous Engine to run in real time. Everything seen in the E3 trailer was made using the current rendering engine and tools, but will eventually be moved entirely to Luminous as XV and that engine are being developed in tandem.’
        So basically, it’s going to look miles better than the E3 2013 one. Almost like Agni’s Philosophy in real time. It’s just that the Luminous Engine is still in development, along with the game itself.
        After that, they’re going to use the Luminous Engine for KH3 and adjust it for the art style it’s going for, which is why that game’s gonna look better than the D23 Expo trailer and probably look like the E3 trailer when Sora was walking on the beach.

        • Blizzaja

          xD, if it gets any better I might cry.

          • EX+

            Get ready for salty tears then lol.
            But yeah, both games are gonna look better in the final version. A lot better. KH3 especially.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    Only have four parts uploaded for the game at the moment, but for those interested:

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwny41v5iRDRNMTZK-PJxqwwOpDxR5pyF

    • Blizzaja

      I would watch that, but I don’t want anything to be spoiled.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Ah, yeah. Some people have cut out the story videos and strictly uploaded gameplay, but I’m uploading those as well. Granted, I usually get a copyright notice from Square-Enix because of it, but I’m not monetizing my videos, so I simply just acknowledge the claim and usually just get an ad at the beginning of the video.

  • EX+

    I swear, we’d better get a Treasure Planet world for KH3. It’d be awesome as hell.

    • KingNigma

      Atlantis would be nice too though might not be included because of Atlantica.

      • Blizzaja

        Atlantis would look amazing!

    • DarkLegacy

      How about more of those Disney attraction based attacks like they did with Pirate Ship and Big Magic Mountain?

    • Blizzaja

      I would love that.

    • Reda

      Treasure planet: my favorite childhood movie.

    • Elvick

      I want a Gargoyles world and know it’ll never happen.

  • Azuardo

    Does anyone know if there’s been any confirmation of Guilty Gear Xrd arriving in 2014 on consoles? All I know is it’s due for Arcade next year, but nothing about consoles. Thanks!

    • EX+

      I’ll check for you.

    • EX+

      Yeah, it releases in 2014 on the PS3, PS4 and of course, Arcade.

      • Azuardo

        Thanks, do you mind if you link me to that info? I’m just trying to prepare an article for games to look forward to next year, and just want to be sure.

        Would that include outside of Japan, though? I mean, we all know that the BlazBlue games sometimes took a year to come out after Japan.

        • EX+

          I’m not sure if they’ll release it next year in the states, but I think they would. I mean, most of Arc Systems games get localized sooner rather than later (for the NA at least).
          Link to the info:
          http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-09-09-guilty-gear-xrd-sign-confirmed-for-ps4
          There isn’t an exact release date, but it is coming in 2014.

          • Azuardo

            Thanks for that info, appreciate it! Might include it in the list, then…

  • Blizzaja

    Give me FFXV or KH3, I don’t care which! It would be great just to have one of those in my house!

  • Azuardo

    Kingdom Hearts fans might like this?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq8Wu19e-MI

    • Blizzaja

      It’s good, but I prefer the original.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    So, I’m just minding my own business while playing Lightning Returns yesterday and suddenly Lightning pulls a victory pose straight out of JoJo. Well, that’s generally what I think of when a character bends their back as they pose since it seems rather unnecessary, lol.

    • Tac-Mex

      The ending of that game is easily one of the worst and most stupid ever made.

      It’s just as bad as Mass Effect 3.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Gee. Who would have thought? A game solely based on fanservice that pretty much retcons every canonical plot before it would have a terrible ending.

        It was obvious from the beginning that the game wasn’t released with the story in mind. Hell, you could tell that just from the trailers alone. The story (if you can call it that) is all over the place.

        Fortunately, for me, I generally don’t care about stories in RPGs, so this isn’t a problem. I play games for the gameplay these days. It takes a damn good story to make me even care these days (see: Nier).

        • Tac-Mex

          Well, I usually play RPGs for the story and gameplay, but as as some one who grew playing Final Fantasy games, i just feel insulted about what these games has become.

          The plot is of LR is just a stupid fanfic created by Toriyama.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            The first Final Fantasy for NES was my first RPG ever, but after playing RPGs for over 20 years… You come to expect certain things. One of the things I have learned over the years (with any genre, really) is to not go in with high expectations for a good story. We’ve had a LOOOOOOOOOT of RPGs (especially J-RPGs) with similar stories over the years, so it’s hard to be impressed by such a thing any more.

            You can tell that some of them are just focusing more on capturing the consumer’s attention with gameplay elements and/or fanservice instead so they won’t focus on the terrible story, lol.

            • Tac-Mex

              Yeah i guess you’re right, it seems that Anime and JRPGs are using tons of clichés by now.

              They use the same tropes over again:

              -Latin chanting.

              -God as the final boss

              -Power of friendship to destroy evil

              etc

              I just wish we could have more interesting stories on videogames

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Yeah. It’s fine for people who started watching anime or playing video games within the past decade, but for someone who has sat through the same old shit for much longer than that, well…. It’s not fresh any more and we know that.

              • EX+

                Bakuman’s story has none of that stuff. Neither does the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. As far as I know, Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari don’t either.

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  Oh, look. A handful of examples out of tens upon thousands given. Yep, I’m convinced :p

                  • EX+

                    Lol.
                    I’m just saying there are a few that don’t do the cliché bs. I can probably think of an original story.

      • EX+

        I haven’t seen it, but I kinda expected it.
        Time travel is a very bad plot device. If things get too convoluted or if something is out of place, the story can get really bad.
        Prime example? Sonic 06.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Yeah. If a story starts OUT using time travel (see: Back to the Future), then it’s not so bad, but when they randomly throw time travel in the middle of the series, then yeah… You can pretty much toss logic out the window at that point because they can just go back in time to reverse whatever happened in the story, go in the future to prevent it, introduce new characters in the story that “could” have existed, but we never saw in the current timeline, so forth and so on.

          It’s bullshit territory, lol.

        • Tac-Mex

          I don’t want to spoil anything, but the ending heavily implies that Lightning will appear in Final Fantasy XV..

          • EX+

            Wait, what? But FFXV is a completely different mythos and story! I can guess that falcies al l’cies (in fact I think Stella is one of those two) would be in FFXV, but used in a different way like in Type-0.
            What would she do there?

            • Tac-Mex

              I’ll try to not to spoil but it looks like the XIII mythos doesn’t exist anymore at the end of Lightning Returns and the characters of Lightning Returns are now living in the universe of Final Fantasy XV

              • EX+

                What? What?! I need to see that ending.
                I’m no Lightning hater, but I kinda want her to take a break. She can be in KH3, but FFXV? Really?

                It doesn’t make FFXV any worse for me, but damn.

                • Tac-Mex

                  It’s just a theory though, and it’s not confirmed, but like i said, the ending heavily implies that Lightning will appear in some way in Final Fantasy XV, if you want i can spoil you the ending…

                  • EX+

                    I’ll see if I can understand what’s going on in the video. I know bit of Japanese, so I think I’ll understand some of it. Don’t want any of the other Gematsuians to get spoiled.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              You should remember though… Before FFXV became FFXV, it was Versus, which carried the XIII name with it because it’s part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis saga, which XIII, XIII-2, Agito, Type-0, Lightning Returns, and XV are all a part of. So, theoretically… She COULD very well be in XV.

              • EX+

                The Fabula Nova Crystallis saga is a strange on indeed.
                Again, depending on the ending of Type-0… I wouldn’t be surprised if that hooded guy in FFXV turned out to be the card user of Type-0.

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  It honestly wouldn’t surprise me at this point :p

              • Budgiecat

                They (Nomura) could just retcon the whole thing (which I think they should), considering “XIII” is no longer in the title. They were supposed to also tie “Agito” in with XIII but didnt once they did the name change….

                • MrFinalgamer

                  i would love for the XIII characters to be in Type-0! seeing them get slaughtered by Cid’s empire would be glorious

                  • Budgiecat

                    Well that’s obviously not happening since the game has been out for years now and the new iOS one is a prequel

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      i know…still want the game localized though!

          • Blizzaja

            NO, I will officially have had enough of Lightning after I play Lightning Returns.

          • Blizzaja

            If that does happen then you can just say Lightning Returns…AGAIN!

          • Wolf Star

            Umm where did you find the ending??? I want to see it :) I don’t care about spoilers especially lighting games I’m done with her.

            • Tac-Mex
              • Blizzaja

                She forgot something the last time so she returned again.

              • $83030187

                I only got about half-way through FFXIII before I gave up.

                I can only wonder what kind of bullshit took place for THAT to be the final conclusion to the story.

              • Wolf Star

                Worst ending ever… It’s ever worse than mass effect 3 ending. Thanks for the link :)

                • EX+

                  That got me thinking… the blonde guy with the hood in FFXV… he looks like Snow… ah crap!

                  • Wolf Star

                    Well the hooded guy in FFXV looks awesome and way better than snow xD

                    • EX+

                      But you know what I mean right?
                      Also, a quick question:
                      Where is Noct’s Mom?

                    • Wolf Star

                      Yeah I know what you mean, he looks like snow lol anyway can’t wait for the game. Also I don’t know?? I think either died or she’s somewhere in the city?? I don’t know.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      What if she’s in another country? Only because Regis and Noct’s mom broke up

                    • EX+

                      That would make sense…
                      But my god, that ending… why Square?

                    • Tac-Mex

                      Do you want me to tell you where they are?

                      *SPOILERS AHEAD*

                      *SPOILERS AHEAD*

                      They are in France, i am not kidding, Toriyama decided to add those characters into the real world

                    • Wolf Star

                      Really?? What?? Oh god why?? France… hmm why they ended up in France?? I tought they died

                    • Tac-Mex

                      Because Toriyama was in France promoting his game and since he is in love with her (really), he thought that it would be romantic that Lightning ended living in France

                    • EX+

                      What the hell…
                      So let me get this straight Lightning now lives in France and this hints to her being in FFXV? How? Unless France is in FFXV. Because I believe they were in Luciis or Accordo in the E3 trailer as well as mentioning Niflheim. Those aren’t real countries.

                    • Tac-Mex

                      It’s just a theory though, we really don’t know if XV is set in the real world ;”This fantasy is based on reality”, but lightning can appear in some way, she literally is god in the FNC

                    • EX+

                      She’s a god eh? I have a prediction.
                      What if FFXV is set several years after LR and the goddess that gave Noctis the ability to see that light is her?

                    • Budgiecat

                      She’s not a God. She’s a normal person now. Plus that planet looked developed before they got there (notice the city lights from space)

                    • EX+

                      I just hope that she doesn’t.

                    • Wolf Star

                      Well they mentioned Etro goddess of death. But nothing about lightning has been mentioned … Unless 13-3 ending with France.. Oh god..

                    • DarkLegacy

                      “ending with France”

                      Only because she’s called Eclair in Japanese

                    • DarkLegacy

                      They aren’t real countries, but they are suppose to be based on our world. For starters, like Accordo is pretty much based on Venice in Italy. And then we have a US gas station in the 2010 trailer to Versus XIII(XV)

                    • Budgiecat

                      Not to mention the burgandy Toyota Camry comfortably parked behind the train station lol

                    • EX+

                      Also, Toriyama is a bit too invested in Lightning…

                    • Wolf Star

                      Hahahha xD oh my god… This is halarious. Well I’m glad FF13 series has ended

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Yeah, only because her Japanese name was Eclair

                    • Budgiecat

                      oh and to add more romantic symbolism, he added Flanders flowers by the train station which symbolize fallen soldiers (Flanders Field by Normandy France)

                    • DarkLegacy

                      I haven’t even watched LR’s ending. I’m not buying LR so I’m interested in buying XV

                    • Wolf Star

                      Yeah 13-3 ending sucked… Worst ending ever..

                    • Budgiecat

                      cmon they had to try to top XIII-2’s ending lol

                    • Wolf Star

                      That a great prediction :)

                    • DarkLegacy

                      I’m not always clever, but I can be a bit clever sometimes lol

                    • Wolf Star

                      lol :)

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Naegi Makoto

                    • Wolf Star

                      Yep that’s the avatar I used, awesome character :)

                    • DarkLegacy

                      There are lot of awesome anime characters or perhaps game characters like Noctis or Sora. But I have to say, he’s a great character. And the second is Kirigiri, she is hot

                      http://www.anime-planet.com/images/characters/kyouko_kirigiri_51695.jpg

                    • Wolf Star

                      She’s another great character :)

                    • Budgiecat

                      without spoiling anything…….nope

                    • DarkLegacy

                      I only thought that up in my head lol

                    • Budgiecat

                      she dieded

                  • DarkLegacy
                    • Wolf Star

                      Ezio what are you doing in FFXV?? Lol

                    • DarkLegacy

                      It’s Edward Kenway xD

                    • Wolf Star

                      XD

                • Tac-Mex

                  That’s why i refuse to buy this game, i will support Square Enix by buying the Original Soundtack because it’s actually good but i won’t support this kind of bullshit.

                  This is the first time as a Final Fantasy fan that i won’t buy a Final Fantasy game,

                  • Wolf Star

                    I will still buy Final Fantasy XV. ^^

              • EX+

                Oh my god… You’re shitting me. Did I just see that shit? *Face desk*

            • Budgiecat

              I got a copy through someone on leta_jp’s stream

        • Budgiecat

          Radiant Historia, Chrono Trigger & Chrono Cross do it well. Toriyama is just a hack doesn’t matter if its time travel or not. He’s just a bad writer/director.

  • Nightcore34

    With the announcement of the ps4/vita bundle who else thinks that more vita games either remakes, ports or new localised games are on the way?

    • TheExile285

      More sales is good. Wish they could have done this with NA launch.

      • Nightcore34

        Yeah, I think a rethink in marketing would be better, maybe market the vita as a jrpg/rpg powerhouse, j/rpg’s tend to be long so having them on the go as the vita is designed for would be a better marketing strategy.

      • Elvick

        I honestly don’t thinks SCEA is behind PS Vita at all. No first party developer located in NA is working on it. The only thing SCEA is providing are ports. Europe and Japan are the only ones providing new content.

        And SCEA isn’t even localizing all of that. (especially SCEE content)

        The complete lack of marketing to PS Vita is evidence too. I know they want to focus on PS4, but Europe is planning to really push ads that showcase PS Vita + PS4 value. And they’re advertising Tearaway. Which I didn’t think would happen at all.

        I guess we could say 3rd party productions (I think they’re in NA), but that’s not Vita focused and thus far we’re only seeing Borderlands 2 (a port).

  • Tac-Mex

    Hello, do you like Mexicans?

    • DichaTesoro

      …what’s with the picture?

    • TheExile285

      Well, I just like women in general so….

      • EX+

        Hell yeah boss!

    • Budgiecat

      Man you are REALLY obsessed with this one girl….

  • MosquitoLemon

    So did they announce Rival Schools 3 yet? No? OK, see y’all next week :

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Don’t remind me :|

      • Budgiecat

        Hey.. they didn’t announce Rival Schools 3 yet…just thought I’d let you know…

  • $83030187

    17 hours until the Persona announcement. I haven’t been this hyped for a JRPG since…

    …shit. I guess Kingdom Hearts II. It’s been a while.

    • Wolf Star

      I’m so hyped for P5 announcement (hope it’s P5). I haven’t been hyped like this since they announced this game in US :)

      • $83030187

        I am pumped for that game too. That and Lords of Shadow 2 are going to make for an awesome February.

        • Wolf Star

          Ikr?? :D also Tales of Symphonia Chronicles that too adds in February release :)

          • DarkLegacy

            I just remembered, that pic’s Naegi from Dangan Ronpa

            • Wolf Star

              Yep that’s the pic :) hehe

              • DarkLegacy

                I think I posted that two times lol. I have been watching a good amount of anime. And I think I might have found your next profile pic, and that’s if you want to use it. Or you can use one of my Sora pics

                http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn46/bookworm12369/Lajildur%20Academy/hot_anime_guy-1.jpg

                • Wolf Star

                  Awesome!! :D thanks man and it’s alright I’ll keep my avatar for now.

                  • DarkLegacy

                    Alright then. Just let me know if you need anymore anime pics for your profile pic

                    • Wolf Star

                      Thanks I will :)

      • Budgiecat

        Don’t do this to yourself….

    • TheExile285

      I’m expecting multiple announcements:

      – Persona 5
      – Persona 4-2
      – Remake of a Persona game

      • $83030187

        I think an announcement of the console versions of Persona 4 Arena 2 is a lot more likely than a straight up Persona 4-2.

        I could see there being a Vita version of Persona 3 FES, that contains the female MC from P3P and other little things.

      • Wolf Star

        Where did you get remake persona game from?? lol I only heard about Persona 5, Persona 4-2 and Persona 4 fighting game 2 or whatever it’s called.

        • TheExile285

          well none of that is based on any facts. they are just my guesses lol

          • Wolf Star

            Haha ok lol :) 24 hours left!! :D well less than that :)

        Prepare to crushed by Sega owning Atlus, er I mean poor business decisions that might have been influenced by Sega.

        • Budgiecat

          Can’t even call it “Sega” anymore. It’s just a moniker Sammy uses. Sammy is the real company. The same assholes that didn’t bring us Berserk PS2!

          The real Sega died years ago….

          • Budgiecat

            Don’t downvote the truth!

            • Budgiecat

              Hey! show yourself!

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Sammy/Sega who gives a damn it is the same shitty company.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      *sits back and watch as people get hyped* *laughs inside head because people are expecting it to be something like p5* *will laugh openly when people cry when it is revealed to be something shitty (and be upset at Atlus even though I knew it was happening)*

      • $83030187

        http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=90990161&postcount=2203

        Right. They are going to go through all of the trouble, and tease the game for 2 months, just for nothing.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          *looks at Sqaure* Yup. Good possibility. And I am completely prepared to be wrong, but I am trying to think in the way that Sammy/Sega/whoever would to destroy the fans’ hopes and dreams. This way I can be pissed about it being something shitty, but not be broken inside, because I knew it was coming.

          • $83030187

            I don’t think Sega owning Atlus is going to change things much, if at all.

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Probably not but it gives people an outlet to put the hate onto because of Sega’s poor decisions about localizations (*again looks at Square*).

              • $83030187

                I can’t really blame Sega for not localizing a bunch of JRPGs for a dead platform rampant with piracy, or the Yakuza games, because no one buys them.

                • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                  But they should think about the fans, not simply money. I guess that is too much to ask of AAA developers.

                • Budgiecat

                  If you look at the numbers people do buy Yakuza games in the West compared to the Japanese numbers. The thing is, it’s marketed WAY better in Japan then it is in the U.S.
                  Its one of the most requested games to be localized by Sony’s 3rd party support department.
                  Look at how heavily Call of Duty is marketed. You’d think by now Activision wouldn’t even NEED to market CoD as heavily as they do (same with GTA) and Pokemon, but they DO and guess what….proper marketing works. Sega does shit marketing for many years. They only have themselves to blame.
                  Oh and where’s Phantasy Star Online 2? Yeah…

        • Budgiecat

          Square-Enix and Namco have done it before so….

    • Budgiecat

      If its a pachislot game I will lol

  • DarthBrian

    I didn’t see this posted here so I thought I would share.

    http://furiousfanboys.com/2013/11/polygon-exposed/

    This is a pretty good article explaining how biased Polygon is in the “war” between PS4 and Xbox One. They seem to have a pretty clear bias towards Microsoft based on the evidence provided. What do you guys think?

    • EX+

      I think MS pay Polygon. I know they gave them 750k, but I think they pay Polygon to downplay things that hurt the Xbox brand. They really needed to make the XBO sound better than the PS4, so I’m guessing that explains the explosion of shitty PS4 game reviews from Polygon.

    • $83030187

      Or maybe the people who are upset at Polygon are themselves biased?

      There seems to be a group of people who won’t be happy unless every gaming site is trashing the Xbone at every turn. God forbid someone out there is having a good time with it.

      • GhostNomad

        It’s one thing to have a good time with a console and give it credit where credit is due.

        It’s a completely different thing to make up statements that the console you like does something that the competition doesn’t. Just in case you didn’t click the link, here’s the video that can be found on that page.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-IXV7SG26E

        • EX+

          Hey Ghost. You have no idea what I’m pissed off about.
          I’ll give you a hint:
          The bolt strikes in the 15th coming.

        • $83030187

          That article on FuriousFanboys is written by a former Sony employee who has shown his own biases multiple times.

          Why should I trust him over Polygon?

          • GhostNomad

            I’m not saying that he should be listened to and Polygon should burn. Hell, the dude’s attitude in that article wasn’t exactly professional, and if the site’s name is anything to go by, you can’t really expect complete and unbiased truth 100% of the time.

            All I’m saying is that Polygon tried to hype up the Xbone by claiming it had features nonexistent on the PS4 and the video clearly shows otherwise.

            If you want my opinion on the matter, don’t give full trust to either. Read as many reviews as possible, gather all the actual facts from them, decide what you like and what you don’t like based on those facts, go with whatever sounds better for you and your tastes, simple as that :P

            • $83030187

              I think the statement from Polygon was based on ignorance, not some kind of deep-seated bias against the Playstation 4.

              Tensions are high right now with the console warriors, and everything is going to get taken and blown out of proportion.

              Instead of getting together and talking about great games, people would rather defend their favorite box made by border-line slave labor developed by their preferred multinational corporation.

              • GhostNomad

                Ignorance could very well be another valid explanation as well, I agree. Way I see it, the PS4 was out one week earlier and they had the chance to do a thorough review, so any false claims made would either be a lie to make one box look better than the other, or it would be ignorance which would mean they probably should’ve picked someone with a better understanding of both consoles to do the talking.

                You’re also correct in saying that pretty much everything would get blown out of proportions, but that’s pretty much one of the defining features of discussions on the internet, for better or worse <.<

                • $83030187

                  I think it’s just best to not expect much from “game journalists”.

                  • GhostNomad

                    Amen to that one.

                    • $83030187

                      Shit, I feel like I enjoyed video games a lot more before I got involved in the forum stuff. All of this drama over glorified toys for adults.

                      Before I realized some of the dipshits I shared my hobby with.

                    • GhostNomad

                      I almost regret the day when I started posting on the GameFAQs boards. Before then, the only use I had for that site were walkthroughs and cheats/secrets. To be fair, I’ve also made a lot of awesome friends through the most random encounters over gaming (made an awesome friend who let me live with her for a year and we only became friends because she wanted someone to help her find all the emblems in RE5), so the community has its pros and cons :P

                    • $83030187

                      NeoGAF was my first experience with gaming forums. What a mistake that was.

        Poly was payed 500+k by MS, and is biased, i like my xbox but deying poly’s bias is just insane

    • McPoo

      I’ve not read the link, but someone posted a news story the other day about Polygons founding, which apparently was part funded by Sony. Does your link bring that up?

      I’ll have a look at it later, it’s all quite interesting. I never really look at their site, but Arthur Gies is on Rebel FM, which I listen to weekly. He comes across as a bit brusque at times, but he’s never really seemed like he’s biased, just very vocal in his criticisms.

    • DrForbidden

      I would be, but I read the reviews and synopsis, and oh lawd, did it seem like an godawful plot…

      A lot of people hated 3.0 for the narrative failures.

      • Charlie

        Well that’s disappointing, to say the least. But i’ll give it a chance considering it’s been my favourite anime for quite some time.

        • DrForbidden

          The animation quality will be top-notch, as will the action, and I suppose it’s definitely worth watching at least once. I’m just not sure if it’s worth a BD purchase to me. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy it!

    Busy day but just wanted to drop in an say hi. Sorry about some of the comments in the XB1 sells one million article. It just got really off topic and out of hand quickly. I played a game for a few hours, when I returned it was pretty bad. I’ve unlocked it for now, hopefully things will be fine. Oddly enough, the PS4 sells one million article didn’t have that problem. I think it was just coincidental. The XB1 article getting posted on the weekend is likely a factor.

    Anyways. I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I’m sure some of you are enjoying your new PS4 or XB1 this weekend? Or, maybe you are playing the new Zelda on 3DS. I’ve heard great things about it.

    I’ll try to drop in later and post more, have a nice day.

    • $83030187

      It was a positive article about the Xbone. I think it should have been pretty obvious what was going to happen. :P

      • Wolf Star

        Yeah it was a really good article so far until some random hater/fanboy console hater whatever that guys name is started to flame in a negative way. I have never seen so much hate in one article. Well it’s all in the past now. I don’t like Xbone too but I’m not a negative natzi that spews away to much negativity in one article. Well I’m going back to playing my Ps4. :)

      • $30632660

        Just another article tossed into a group of upset people that don’t like good Xbone news. Flamebait personified XD

    • McPoo

      Hi Zero,

      Just a quick question. How come my comment about being nuts got deleted, but not my original post? I’m not complaining, I’m just curious.

      Cheers

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        It seemed trollish. I only edited it. I didn’t remove it.

    • Charlottes Guardian

      Hey zero :D Been a while since we talked, I hope all is going well for you. And I hope you’re not working yourself too hard again.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        I’m doing okay. At a friends house tonight, but a bit upset by some of the comments posted this weekend.

        I’m just fine besides that. How are you doing? It has been a while, but I’ve just been super busy, sorry about that.

        • Charlottes Guardian

          I’m doing alright. Moving back to Florida to live with the family again, things aren’t working out here anymore, and a buncha other reasons. But yeah mixed feelings about the whole thing.

          So I didn’t see the comments, but I heard about them a few times. As Gematsu gets bigger, I know you guys don’t want this turning into an IGN comment section full of trolling and otherwise rude and unhelpful comments. But I think this was an isolated incident because of the New Console releases….it brings out the fanboy in everyone. I still hold the community to high standards though, and I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

          In other news, the girl im totally in love with lives in Florida and apparently feels the same way sooooooo

      From what I seen all fanbases gave Sony props on that articles, but one fanbase just couldn’t accept that Microsoft did good despite all the odds and had to spin the article into a Sony vs Microsoft one.

      • DrForbidden

        I don’t know if the other flaming comments were deleted, but I just want to point out that I went through that thread and the only one I found throwing a hissy fit was you.

        While it is impressive that MS sold a million XBones, it is not wrong to point out that statistically-speaking, a million in 13 countries is not comparable to a million in 2 or 3. Most of the comments pointing this out weren’t exceptionally rude either. Your insistence on looking only at the total number of sales and disregarding the stratified analyses while accusing other people of being fanboys simply cemented the impression that your argument didn’t have a leg to stand on.

        • $30632660

          Like I said before a 500 dollar console sold a million units compared to a 400 dollar console that sold a million units, do the math and keep dancing puppet.

      and I would say that it has a lot to do with this site just having a much much larger J-Gaming demographic than a Western gaming demographic.

    Anyone hyped for any upcoming WRPGs?

    Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3, Dragon Age Inquisition, Project Eternity, Torment: Tides of Numenera, the next Mass Effect, Deus Ex and Fallout titles…

    • Budgiecat

      Probably just Reborn and Witcher 2…need to see more of Cyberpunk 2077

      WRPG has far too much ugly characters in it. Hard to hype.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Wither 3 and DAI. Don’t know what Project Eternity is or Torment either. I thought Cyberpunk was an MMO? If not then I don’t know anything about it either. Mass Effect… maybe… Deus Ex… maybe… Fallout… probably not… but those all have shooting aspects to them that make me iffy.

    • Elvick

      I’m curious about Cyberpunk 2077. Otherwise, not really. At least not now.

  • Charlottes Guardian

    Man I’m so stoked this weekend. I bought 3 games I haven’t played yet but have always wanted to. Ni No Kuni, Fallout New Vegas, and The Witcher 2. So excited to play all of them. I haven’t been able to buy any games for a very long time, and it feels so good to get back into what I love to do.

    So, I’d love to hear your guys opinions on any of these 3 games as I’m still trying to figure out what to start first and I would love to know what everyone else thought of them when they played them :D

  • EX+

    So, I think it’s time to have a nice discussion about Sonic the Hedgehog.
    Sonic has been consistently good for the past 3 years, but on October 22nd, that consistency was broken with Sonic Lost World. According to even Somecallmejohnny, the game is pretty average if not bad.
    This Sonic fiasco really started in 2006 when Sonic 06 released… we all know how that turned out.
    The game showed a lot of promise at first, but when it came out… my god.
    It’s not the worst game ever, but it is a pretty sad excuse for a Sonic game.
    So, I’ve decided: I have a few ideas for how Sonic could get really good again.
    First off, no exclusivity. Put the next Sonic game on the Xbone, Wii U and PS4. Make the PS4 version look amazing (it is the most powerful console), while staying true to the current art style that Sonic games have. Maybe a few realistic tweaks for the trees so that they don’t look like oddly shaped blocks and with good lighting. If you have to downgrade the Wii U version, do it. The game should be 1080p native on the PS4, maybe 900p on the XBO if it can’t do 1080p native. Wii U version? Not sure. As for the frame rate, 30fps is more than enough. Sonic has never been a twitch game, from my perspective at least. If the consoles can handle the CGI graphics of Sonic Lost World at 60fps, that’d be cool too (aside from the Wii U I guess).
    As for Story, make it simple, but not too simple. I don’t play Sonic games for story, but Colors, Generations and Lost World were too simple for me. I can imagine it’s the same for a lot of us here. Characters involved should be Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Shadow, Silver (a different version, no future BS, make him come from the Lost Hex), Cream and Team Chaotix. Make Charmy Bee unplayable. Make him the equipment guy who occasionally gets help from Tails
    Gameplay should be consistent. Each character should have enough speed to match the level design, but they should each have their own abilities and level of speed. And yes, they should go for a refined Unleash/Generations formula.

    • shogunknight

      I played unleashed, prayed they removed the werehog and leave the non warehog parts, sonic generations was born, i was 100% satisfied. If any sonic game can be like generations, adventure, or unleashed (without werehog) im perfectly ok. What i think would be best is to make sonic have equipable gear like generations. Things to make him faster for example, use a shield….generations formula worked perfectly, i still play that game

      • EX+

        Good suggestions. I loved the boost gameplay as well. I think that with a little refinement, Sonic can be one of the best franchises out there.

    • McPoo

      Personally I’ve not enjoyed a sonic game since the Megadrive. Especially nowadays, I just find them incredibly boring. I think the problems more likely my tastes changing though, rather than the games getting any worse.

      They should Deffo do a remake of Sonic R though. Best Sonic game ever, other than maybe that fighting game on GBA.

    • Azuardo

      3D Sonic is just pants, basically. Sure, Colours was decent, but you’re never gonna get a 3D Sonic game that’s truly great or touching 3D Mario quality. Sonic is only good for 2D, and they manage to somehow fuck that up most of the time. Generations was on the right track.

      Frankly, they need to just stick to doing 2D Sonics.

      I want this style, pls:

      http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/056/1/4/Sonic_CD_Animation_Sprite_HD_by_luckettx.gif

      • EX+

        I think they should do both. It’d expand the fanbase.

      • LordKaiser

        well i think they tried to do 2D 1/2 Sonic games on PSN and XLA but it failed. Also it was launched in episodes…….

        • Azuardo

          Yep, Sonic 4 Episodes I and II were what I meant by them still managing to fuck up 2D Sonic.

          Sticking true to the original Mega Drive games is how they should do it, and that’s what they had down with Generations, and why it is one of the best Sonic games since those Mega Drive games.

        • Elvick

          2.5D doesn’t count. The animation was weird.

          And the reason those failed were because the physics were terrible. When a Genesis game has better physics than a game in 20xx (forgot when it came out) then you know there’s a problem.

          • LordKaiser

            I wonder how they would had done if they went for hand drawn crispy 2D like Rayman Origins.

            • Elvick

              I’d die of happy.

              I don’t know if Sega has anyone capable of doing that though. Not even sure of any recent sprite work work they’ve one. Everything they do, that I can think of, has been 3D models and such.

              Suppose they could contract the work out.

      • Elvick

        God I’d love to see a full on 2D Sonic, but companies are too lazy these days. 2.5D… and most companies suck at it. (Nintendo…) If you can’t make 2.5D look awesome, like Trine 1 & 2, LBP series, Puppeteer… then don’t make it. NSMB series is some of the worst 2.5D work ever. Especially U. Flat backgrounds. Bleh.

        • Azuardo

          Oh, I know. Don’t get me started on the NSMB series. I am sick and tired of it. I miss the days of every 2D Mario being a unique graphical showcase. Now the past four 2D games have been identical. Lazy and shameful.

    • Budgiecat

      Personally I’d rather we get Shenmue III and Yakuza Ishin/5 localized

    • Wolf Star

      I have unleashed and played generations amazing games. I have watched sonic colors on YouTube it was really good game. But to be honest, Sonic Lost World was “meh” to me it wasn’t good as other sonic games. Still an “OK” game, I would give it 7/10 (yeah I watched it on YouTube, I don’t have Wii U) there is one more Nintendo exclusive Sonic game coming out soon. Sooo I don’t know what they will do on that one. I really want another Sonic game for Ps4 but we won’t see it until they release that another exclusive sonic game for Wii U out of the door. 2 down and 1 to go.

      • DarkLegacy

        I probably thought that Sonic 06 wasn’t a good game because it was rushed. I kept playing Heroes a lot of times and it still didn’t even get me bored

        • Wolf Star

          Yeah sonic 06 was horrible but I’m still enjoying Sonic Unleahsed it’s so much fun :)

          • DarkLegacy

            I completed Unleashed and I’m currently playing Generations

            • Wolf Star

              Sweet I love both games :) they are amazing :D

              • DarkLegacy

                I love all the Sonic games, except for 06

    • MrFinalgamer

      have the story of Unleashed, music like in Generations, continue with the boost formula, tweak the parkour system (it’s a cool idea, just needs A LOT of perfection).

      • EX+

        Yeah, good ideas. Mix everything good from Unleashed, Generations and Lost world.

  • bloodiOS

    So, I read through I”s the other day, and found myself really liking it a lot. I didn’t expect the manga to be as enjoyable as it turned out to be ;)

    http://www.batoto.net/comic/_/comics/is-r41

    • TheExile285

      yep, its a pretty good manga.

    • Budgiecat

      Hey that manga character actually looks Japanese!

  • Tac-Mex

    Hey guys, do you want more spoilers about the ending of Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns? Because some of them are pretty stupid and hilarious

    • Azuardo

      What? I don’t wanna see any damn spoilers about games in these forums, no matter what they are.

      • Tac-Mex

        So don’t read them, just skip them

        • Azuardo

          That’d be nice if there were actual spoilers tags to hide them so I don’t accidentally see them. Doesn’t help that images show up automatically, either.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Disqus was actually kind enough to add a feature to disable the automatic showing of images and videos. It is under that little cog near the top of the discussion thing.

            • Azuardo

              Thanks for that. Now they need to add spoiler tags.

              • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                Definitely, but as I don’t work for Dsiqus no way for me to really do much about it.

    • $83030187

      God, I have read some of the ones over on NeoGAF and they are hysterical.

  • shogunknight

    I want to remember the great games weve played for the past 7/8 years. From wii-ps3-360. Name em, name all the games you had fun playing (doesnt matter if the game was crap to others): ill start with the ones i remember
    Valkyria chronicles, vanquish, castlevania lords of shadow, mario galaxy, metroid prime corruption, resonance of fate, dark & demon souls, skyrim (dont think ive done up to 8hrs in that game), heavy rain, uncharted,
    marvel vs capcom, street fighter 4, tekken 6 & tag, Dead or Alive, dead space, god of war, halo 4, ratchet and clank, last story, disgaea 4, naruto shippuden UNS series, asuras wrath, far cry 3, smash bros brawl, kirby, new super mario bros, sin and punishment, xenoblade, armored cores: for answer and verdict day, yakuza 3, sleeping dogs, tomb raider….ill leave the rest to anyone that wants to add

    • MrFinalgamer

      Kingdom Hearts BBS definitely is one of my favorites this gen (my favorite KH game too!). God of War was straight up dumb fun. The World Ends With You, and Dissidia (god the amounts of hours i’ve put to dissidia is just not healthy)

  • EX+

    I think I have a better understanding of why FFXV wasn’t shown at E3.
    2 reasons.
    1. SE wanted to market Lightning Returns as much as possible and they knew if they put FFXV right next to it, they knew it’d steal the show and then some.
    2. The Luminous Engine that Visual Works was developing was on the verge of completion and they needed more time to drop the real time gameplay into the engine. Because of that, SE decided not to show the game at TGS, especially since they had the option to show it where it would look even more advanced in terms of graphics and gameplay. That’s when Jump Festa comes in.
    What do you guys think?

    • Budgiecat

      Of course

      But these same excuses were used the last time when XIII-2 came out and before that, when XIII came out lol.

      • EX+

        I have my reasons to actually believe this now.
        FFVXIII was a completely different story.
        Because of the screw up that was FFXIV and because of the many KH titles on that weren’t numbered (I don’t consider them to be spinoffs), the development team kept on getting pulled off, Nomura especially for the KH spinoffs.
        We also have to remember that the PS3 was a pain in the ass and the balls to develop for (still my favorite console this gen).

        • Budgiecat

          There’s also the fact that unlike Squaresoft of 1990’s era through 2002, and the time of S-E through to the dawn of the PS3 era, S-E’s library and assets have dwindled significantly, so other than the games from the Western companies they acquired, they really have a small library now and as such, need to pool in money from somewhere while they take forever and a day to make the AAA FF games. This is why they are struggling and pushing out so many mobile phone ports. Drakengard 3 is a light of hope but they also lack the talent that got them to where they were as many have left S-E.
          XIII-2 and LR were made to pull in extra $ from the gap of games they have

          • EX+

            Well you’ve got a point there.
            I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I hope FFXV revitalizes SE. Console are the main platform in this industry, not mobiles.

            • Budgiecat

              It and KH III are their last shot. Otherwise they can go straight to 100% mobile phone shovelware for all i care…

              • EX+

                Personally, I trust SE. If Yoichi Wada (ya know, the guy that screwed SE over) was still the CEO, I would’ve said I trust Nomura.
                Yosuke Matsuda seems like a pretty cool CEO though, someone who’s learnt lessons. He said he wants to give the players what they want sooner rather than later, adding to what you could call optimism.

                • Budgiecat

                  Their fiscal plan spreadsheet doesn’t look encouraging.

                  1.Western online games
                  2.More mobile phone games
                  3.I can’t even remember #3 but it wasn’t interesting

                  • EX+

                    I understand where you’re coming from, but my first comment makes sense, no?

                    • Budgiecat

                      yeah…if you mean your very first post; but I will state that FF XV is not using Luminous Engine exclusively. They are using it only for certain things. They are using an engine custom made from Direct X 11.

                    • EX+

                      Where did ya find that out?

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      Nomura did say that he’s porting his games into any platform that has Direct X11, why say that if your game is not using it?

                    • EX+

                      Oh, sorry, I misunderstood what Budgiecat said.

                    • EX+

                      Also, I know the game is using DX11, but this is what Nomura said about the engine:

                      ‘Everything seen in the E3 trailer was made using the current rendering engine and tools, but will eventually be moved entirely to Luminous as XV and that engine are being developed in tandem.’

                    • Budgiecat

                      Are you sure that wasn’t KH III. And he might have been talking about Crystal Tools..

                    • EX+

                      Yeah, I’m pretty sure.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Something seems off though. Luminous has been developed for some time now.

                    • EX+

                      I guess it takes a while to make a completely new engine.
                      SE really likes graphics though.

                    • EX+

                      Also, I checked up again. Same stuff that’s been said. I think they’ve completed Luminous by now. I guess we’ll find out at Jump Festa.

                    • LordKaiser

                      I think so far Agni Prophesy is the only game using that. That game sounds like a FF game but without the FF name like Bravely Default.

                • MrFinalgamer

                  then where’s my Type-0 dammit! (i just had to…)

          • EX+

            Lol. It was a journey.
            Y’know it’s quite weird. I’m happy and sad at the same time.
            I just hope that Lightning isn’t in FFXV. She’s had her time.

            • Blizzaja

              She’s had a little too much time.

              • EX+

                Agreed. For what she was, she was an ok character, but I think she should rest in peace.
                Put her in Dissidia if they make one on the VITA, but do not put her in KH3 or FFXV, FFXV especially.

              • Budgiecat

                The outfits contradict her character. Even more so if you play the game and learn about a certain someone and who she really is and why she ‘exists’

                • Blizzaja

                  Especially those cute ones that they made, Lightning is a serious character no dresses or make-up will change her. They may make her more appealing to people that like her or like that kind of thing, but can you imagine Lightning really wearing something like this?

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          I already replaced this outfit though, so I didn’t get to use it for very long. I just wanted to see how the pose was and specific abilities tied to it, heh. I basically got the Crescent Moon outfit to replace it shortly after obtaining it and was quick to replace it since this one has additional ATB, which is always nice :3

          Oh and I stumbled across this article earlier regarding Lightning and thought it was pretty funny, lol.

I need to focus on other games for the time being and I’ve got Lightning Returns and God Eater 2 to hold me off for a while as it is.

      • Budgiecat

        Are you going to buy the English copy of XIII LR?

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          What? No. I rarely double dip.

          I don’t see a reason to.

          • Budgiecat

            Oh okay. Just checking

    • MrFinalgamer

      finally started a new vita game, tearaway, about to finish it, and…it’s just brilliant. easily MM best work (granted they’ve just made LBP1 and 2…but Tearaway is still phenomenal)

    • Elvick

      Tearaway. Going for the platinum now, probably play some more of Trine 2 on PS4. More Killzone SF too.

  • http://www.santashi.com/ Santashi

    The 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who was excellent. Exciting, fun and packed with great little references.

    • MrFinalgamer

      i don’t know. i liked it a lot, but the lack of nine hurt the special a bit IMO (would’ve loved to see Eccelston make a cameo when the war doctor regenerated). i’m not sure how to feel about Gallifrey not being destroyed. i think that added a lot to the character of the Doctor.

      • Elvick

        I didn’t like that there wasn’t the 9th Doctor either.

      • http://www.santashi.com/ Santashi

        You did start to see him, at least. Unfortunately he won’t come back and they can’t really force him. They did what they could in the circumstances. :( We got the Capaldi eyes though!

        • MrFinalgamer

          oh capaldi’s eyes! that’s gotta be the first time so many fans screamed for a pair of eyes XD

      lol Siliconera

      Fitting of their name, really. Most of their articles are pumped full of silicone.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Yeah… The mods always started shit with me whenever I would post. It didn’t matter what I said. Hell, I could agree with what they stated in the article and they would still reply back to me and give me a “warning”. Bunch of commies :|

                  What have you done to make him so mad?

                  • Solomon_Kano

                    He felt that I wasn’t being harsh enough with members of the Open Thread who posted screens from anime with boobs and such, so I’m a terrible mod or something.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Far more than that, and it is not solely you. I clearly refer to multiple members and the site as a whole.

                    • bloodiOS

                      I’d like you to elaborate on how Solomon is a “real moron”?

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Just visit the site yourself it might take you 10 years though as there is constant posting there.

                    • bloodiOS

                      I actually do visit the site, and also join in the discussion on various topics whenever I feel like it. I do admit I don’t drop by the site that often though, so I must’ve missed it but how is Solomon a “moron”?

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I’d really rather not have to cite the reasons. If you are curious enough just look, if you don’t wish to look, then you simply don’t care enough, at which point there you go.

                      just ignore it, he’s not going to give you a precise answer, and even if he does, it’s most likely going to be whining on why he got banned in the first place

                      Nope and I didn’t get banned for not wanting people to be nosy. I got banned for not wanting people to be idiots.

                    • Luna Kazemaru

                      or you got banned for a nasty ass mouth?

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Nope. Though I am sure it would’ve been a good enough reason, and not just for me, for most of the stupid ass site.

                      It’s cool that you think you’re naturally kind but are you really justifying yourself by being such a dic—jerk?

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I never said I was justifying it. You cannot know a person based on one event. Much less the internet. You need to take my word, or if not then that’s your opinion not mine.

                    • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

                      I think you’re not getting me here. If you say you’re “naturally kind” then me and everyone else expect you to be kind, even at moment like this. You being rude to people is NOT helping you one single bit. I will take your word when you can prove it.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      “damn god” is poor grammar. I only act like this when people are being idiotic.

                    • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

                      Eh..? You’re still not helping yourself here. In this sort of situation you would simply just ignore it and move on but here you are acting like a tough guy in front of your friends.

                      Anyway I’m pretty sure I corrected myself (by editing) simply because it isn’t correct. So yeah wait a while next time before acting like a smart ass. I’m done with you, no telling what you would do next if I continued.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I am not “acting tough” and I don’t really have friends on this site nor is anybody at my house. So there goes that argument.

                    • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

                      Well then replace “friends” with “members of this site”.

      • haku_luv

        You didn’t stop going there. You acted like an ass who was superior to everyone else, a serious jerk and got banned. Not like anyone missed you tho :P

      • Haku_Luvs_You

        Now my memory isn’t what it used to be but I think there’s a few problems with what you just said.

        1. You were banned
        2. You were warned multiple times like 5 times to stop insulting people, but didn’t.
        3. People ask where Luna went, People laughed when you got banned, like seriously it was a huge event.. You weren’t nice to any of us. I mean FeatherFang legitimately wanted to be your friend and you treated him like he was the equivalent of shit in the woods.

        So stop acting like everyone was out to get you. You did it to yourself for acting like a self centered ass. No they aren’t perfect, nor great. But dude you can’t talk shit when you were the one at fault.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          1) I was banned, but I could still visit the site.
          2) It was simply true statements.
          3) Don’t really give a damn.

            1) you were banned from commenting
            2) you didn’t state any true statements, you threatened the girls there you got on everyone’s nerves, and last but not the least, you threaten those who post things you don’t agree with

            3) good, because it’s your own fault

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              1) Like I said, I could still visit the site.

              3) Ok?

              • Ferrick

                1) again, you were banned from commenting, not visiting the site

                2) quick question, were you ever mentally diagnosed? Because threatening others isn’t stating any “true statements” but it’s pure psychopathic

                • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                  1) Right. His argument was simply I was banned, I could still visit the site though.
                  2) Don’t need to be, and as I said “true statements”.

    • Azuardo

      I’ve avoided that site for about 2 years now, since they literally post spoilers on the front page for every single game. It was awful.

      • Azuardo

        *downvotes because unwanted spoilers are fantastic and exactly how you should run your gaming news website*

        Wow, I didn’t think there would be people against unwanted spoilers on the front page of a gaming site, but people continue to surprise me :/

        It’d be nice if people actually replied to give their take on things, instead of hiding behind a number. I’m genuinely curious to understand what’s good about spoiling people.

        • Willgaea

                I think so.

              • Luna Kazemaru

                yes

                  Like I say, I last visited about 2 years ago, but there have been spoilers from Kingdom Hearts 3D, Lightning Returns and Zelda posted, to name some. I never had anything else against the site at all; I used to get all my gaming news from there, and I imagine it still is a great source of news. I just had to stop visiting when unwanted spoilers kept cropping up on the front page.

                  • Luna Kazemaru

                    Mmm I see like i said I haven’t seen it as much unless screen caps count? I think they put it out there before hand now.

                    • Azuardo

                      No idea, but a friend of mine recently complained to me about having spoilers posted on the front page, too, so it must still happen. I’ve seen it in tweets as well, which gives the same impression they still do it.

    Anyone hear if EA fixed the no audio issue when capturing on PS4

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      It’s probably not a bug, just an anti-user policy they implemented. xD I keed, but still EA seems to like screwing people (as do many gaming companies).

      Meh I got all the info I need to know it is not P5.

  • MrFinalgamer

    so i just finished Tearaway…brilliant cannot even begin to describe this game. this game alone is worth owning a vita for. best game made by MM, and IMO the best game on the system

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      How does it compare gameplay/enjoyability to Little Big Planet.

      • MrFinalgamer

        it’s quite different to LBP. only similarities is the amount of charm the game has, and being able to customize your character.
        gameplay is a 3D platformer. the unique thing is how it uses the vita’s capabilities. you use the touchscreen, and touchpad a lot, but they feel so natural that you won’t bother, in fact it adds so much to the game believe it or not. this is one of the very few games that managed to make touch controls natural, fun, and even immersive, which is quite the accomplishment.
        the music is so odd, but fits the levels like a glove. the game’s difficulty is just right, if not slightly easy. the collectables are much easier to spot unlike the LBP games. finished with a 77% competition on my first run. the game is really atmospheric though, and the amount of detail is insane, and when i personally loved the message that the main character has.
        the only complain i could have was that there’s not too much to do after the game is done, and the platforming gets some time to get used to. other than that, the game was fantastic. definitely recommend it to anyone with a vita, and IMO this is a system seller

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Hmm… well I will definitely look into it. I am fairly picky with my games, and usually only get RPGs or very Japanese-y games.

          • MrFinalgamer

            actually, if you want to try it out, there’s a demo on the PSN store (more like a trial, but whatever). see if you like it =D

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              demon? lol Might want to edit that. lol I will download that right now actually. Thanks for the recommendation.

              • MrFinalgamer

                lol thanks for that XD hope you enjoy the demo!

                • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                  It’s currently downloading. Might take a bit. It is 1GB.

    • Elvick

      Agreed. Fantastic game.

      Going for the platinum now. :3

      I thought it might dethrone Gravity Rush for me as my favorite PS Vita game (and what I feel is the best one), and I was right. Not sure why I questioned it. MM is magic.

      • MrFinalgamer

        actually GR was my favorite vita game too XD (if only it had a better story). both used the Vita’s capabilities so well, but Tearaway is so damn good with it! definitely getting a platinum for it too. that ending though…almost in tears TBH =’)

        • Elvick

          I did tear up. ;3

          It was so lovely. <3

          Only thing that bums me out is that maybe we wouldn't see a sequel. D; I mean, if you think about it… why would we need one? It pretty much works as a self sustained title.

          But… I want one.

          I'm going to attempt some papercraft after I platinum the game. To avoid spoiling those who haven't played it to competition… "for reasons" ;3

      I actually had that discussion with my best friend when I was visiting him during the PS4 launch. His family took me to a restaurant and we had one hell of a fancy meal, and I couldn’t help but feel that all the chefs’ hard work in presenting the food in a fancy way was just wasted on me. I admired the plate for about 0.2 seconds before digging in and cleaning it out :P

    • Elvick

      • lancer205

        how did your ps3 broke?

        • MrFinalgamer

          well, technically it’s not broken. it can play downloaded titles, but everytime i put a disc it locks up in 10-30 minutes and i have to restart my system. i thought it was because of dirt so i cleaned it up (boy was it dirty). at first it did the trick, but same problem. so now i’ll just get another one and fix this one later (it’s a phat PS3. it’ll become my PS1 & PS2 player XD)

    It was brought to my attention that some drama was going on in the open forum today. I was actually at a friend’s house, playing some PS3. I don’t have one currently, since my PS3 died about a month ago.

    I started reading some of the comments here and had to stop what I was doing. This required my immediate attention, which kinda made me sad to be honest.

    Where do I begin? I’m really not sure.

    Let me start with this – The Disqus chat system is used on many websites these days. I know that many of you cross post using this system. Not everyone does, but most do. I think that’s great by the way.

    I know that many of our commenters here also post on Siliconera. Once again, I think that’s great. I have no issues with that.

    In fact, I visit Siliconera on occasion myself. I lurk the comments every once in a while as well. I have no issues with Siliconera, or the folks who visit/post/run the website.

    I’ve been friends with @Solomon_Kano:disqus long before he was appointed as a Moderator on Siliconera. I wished him congrats when I found out about it. I have nothing but respect for him. I’m sure if I got to know some of the other moderators on Siliconera, I would have the same respect for them. I’m not sure of course, but I like to think so.

    Okay. So. Why did I type all of that? I was trying to get into the reason I’m making this post. First things first, I don’t have all the facts here, I haven’t seen any comments or even discussed this.

    From what I can tell @auragar:disqus was banned from posting comments at Siliconera. I’m not sure why.

    It seems like this has created some drama that has found it’s way into the open forum here at Gematsu. Like I mentioned above. The cross posting system Disqus has makes this fairly easy.

    I want to make this clear before I type up my next part. Auragar I have no idea what happened. I’m sorry you were banned from posting comments. I have nothing against you either, I only have respect for you as well.

    Now. I feel like I can finally make my main point here.

    I’m going to be brutally honest here. I’d like to kindly request you stop posting comments about that (the Siliconera ban) in here. Please. Please. Please.

    I’m not trying to be rude, I understand that people get emotional. We aren’t zombies or robots. (Maybe some of us? lol) I know that when people get emotional, tempers rise, etc. I understand and accept that.

    What I just can’t accept is spamming up the Gematsu open forum with all of this. Why not take it to private messages on twitter, or facebook, or some other social media? Anything else. Please!

    I’m not taking sides. I’m trying to be fair. I’m just someone on the outside looking in. All of this suddenly showed up at my doorstep more or less.

    I really don’t think I’m asking too much here. You have to realize. We have plenty of other folks who don’t want to discuss this, read about it, etc. They just want to enjoy the open forum —- without the drama — like usual.

    Which is exactly what I want.

    I strive to keep the open forum friendly and fun. It’s something I not only enjoy, but I’m proud of. I don’t enjoy the drama, the rage, the anger. It’s not something I’m proud of either. I don’t think anyone really is.

    Some might say – Why not edit or remove the comments?

    I don’t want to start editing comments in the open forum. I don’t want to edit comments in any open forum, ever. Seriously. I can’t stress this enough. Editing comments in an open forum goes against everything it stands for. Removing comments is the same. (Spam bot posts and stuff don’t count, of course.)

    In conclusion. Please. Can we just take a deep breath here? Can we let this go? If not, I ask that you continue the conversation somewhere else.

    Thanks for reading this… and hopefully understanding where I’m coming from here.

    Let’s move on and enjoy the open forum. Please. – Zero

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Aye, and sorry for reading this so late, I don’t even know what I’ve been doing for the last 2 hours. I do apologize for my actions, and I should keep the past in the past, and separate from this site as it has not a thing to do with this site. Like you said though we are human, and humans have emotions, and feelings. Of course what was said could not be taken into a PM on any site as it is more than likely clear there is only bad blood with them, but this is not the issue, and again I fully, and wholly apologize for my disturbance.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Thanks for understanding. I really appreciate it.

        • DarkLegacy

          So Zero, have you been doing a lot of work lately? And sorry that your PS3 died a month ago. I have a disc stuck in mine and one of my friends are bringing that disc out

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            Yeah. I’ve been pretty busy with work and real life lately. It’s been cutting way down on my time.

            • DarkLegacy

              I think you might need to take a rest when you have free time. It’s probably why I haven’t seen you comment lately on Gematsu

              • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                Thanks for the concern. I’m fixing to get some sleep right now. ^^

  • MrFinalgamer

    i guess you could call it “elitism” or something. but is any one else tired of the fanbase that Persona 4 got to the series? i mean it’s a fantastic game, but so many people treat it like it’s a god send of RPGs, and don’t even acknowledge it’s prequels (sometimes P3, but 1 & 2 get forgotten so many times…). TBH they remind me of FFVII fanboys =/

    • shogunknight

      Well, you do have a point. Persona 4 is my best TBH. I think its the internet blowout, the power of the internet. You know, if atlus were to ask if i want a sequel to digital devil saga or devil summoner or nocturne, i will take any of them over persona. Maybe its the rpg drought

      • Omega_Shiro

        I second that Devil Survivor and nocturne would be the things I want. Need a new Devil Survivor but a remake like we have is a welcome as well.

        • Budgiecat

          I hate that they called it “Nocturne” only and not SMT III. Where’s the III? I refuse to just call it SMT Nocturne. Makes it feel like a spin off damnit…

          • MrFinalgamer

            how about Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne? =D

            • Budgiecat

              Thats what I usually call it

          • Omega_Shiro

            normally I would give it the full name but typing it seems a pain…

    • Elvick

      Well, 1/2 are far more niche than 3/4. They don’t have the design that 3/4 do, so they’re less user friendly.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      The worst ff fanboys are the 6 ones..so dang pushy and rude

    • $83030187

      I’d take the Persona 3/4 fans over those who constantly bitch about them, while placing Persona 1/2 on some kind of pedestal.

      Now that Persona 5 has been announced they are especially bad. I have come across tons of people who want the Social Links and high school setting to be removed, which are two of the things that have made the series so popular.

      Shit is fucking obnoxious. I hate people that expect games that don’t interest them to change so they do. I mean, why don’t we just make Persona 5 an FPS with football elements?! That is sure to reach more people! If only more developers were willing to throw their established fanbases under the bus to cater to people who don’t give a damn.

      Ugh. Rant over.

          sleep, wake up to see what they announced then either stay up all day due to exitment, or go back to sleep in disappointment

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            The thing is I won’t be disappointed, I will be angry, lol and I won’t be able to sleep. xD

  • bloodiOS

    I’m currently backing this project, because it has such beautiful and artistic game design:

    http://kck.st/178mDc8

    This is actually the third launch of the project, so hopefully those interested can support and allow it to succeed. The campaign was to able to generate $30K so far, leaving only $10K before the project is officially funded. Anyway, according to the FAQ, the game is planned to be released on “PC, Mac, and Linux along side one console“. Now, within the same FAQ, they also mention that there will be a version for Wii U, Vita and even OUYA later on, which would mean that the console mentioned above has to be either the PS4 or XBO (I’m leaning towards the PS4.)

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Looks fairly pretty.

    • shogunknight

      Love the artwork. I just noticed, there arent a lot of articles concerning kickstarter projects like before, its quite worrying. Normally when a big company or person uses things like these, people tend to forget about the ones that really need the backing. Similar to ios/android titles; people might stop playing other games when titles like CoD or a big companies title come to the platform.

  • Elvick

    Tearaway is incredible. MM knocks it out of the park… I can’t wait to see what they’re doing on PS4. It’s sure to be incredible.

    It’s interesting how the game has changed from early footage though. I don’t want to spoil things, but there’s things they showed early on that just aren’t in the game. Mostly ‘puzzles’.

  • jujubee88

    Looks like the event was about Persona Q (a chibi game) for 3DS and something about a new Persona Arena game.

    No new mainline Persona.

  • jujubee88

    Persona 5 for PS3 in 2015!

    And a Persona dancing game for VITA next year lol :P

    • shogunknight

      Seriously? P5? YES!! But damn far, 2015…..too damn far

      • jujubee88

        It’s winter 2014 for P5, sorry!

        • MrFinalgamer

          might as well be 2015 for anywhere but Japan

  • Elvick

    Why couldn’t we just get Persona 2: Golden or Persona 3: Golden for PS Vita instead?

    I want a perfect Persona 3. Portable and FES content in one package.

    And I want to actually be able to play both P2 games on the same platform and do the save file stuff. We were so close… but no.

    • jujubee88

      I want more Persona RPG style on VITA too, and it could still happen.

      Maybe, SEGA can hire more talent to do a Persona spin off RPG next year and finish development by 2015.

    • $18114340

      I would have been very disappointed if they hadn’t announced new games.

      Much as I would like a complete P3 package, to me P3P occupies a different place than P3 FES does and I don’t tend to think of them as the same game. P2 I can agree with, but that’s of course speaking from the standpoint of a western fan only… you have to remember that these announcements were meant for Japanese fans.

      I’m glad Atlus is doing new things and I don’t think anybody expected Persona Q… really hoping that game turns out well.

      • Elvick

        I don’t mind new games, but I do mind not feeling like I can get the best experience out of something. And I feel that about P2 and P3.

        And by that I mean in one game, not needing to buy/play two versions of the same game to get ‘it all’. (doesn’t apply to P2, just P3, but we never got the ‘full’ experience of having both P2 games)

        It’s how my experience with Vesperia is tainted by the knowledge of the PS3 version. :P

        And between a rhythm game and a complete version of P2 or P3 on PS Vita… I’d take the actual RPGs any day, regardless of being ports.

    • Budgiecat

      Because Atlus isn’t working either of those two games (the 3DS dungeon crawler and the Vita dancing game). Sega is and the EO dev team are.
      Those are basically Etrian Odyssey and Hatsuni Miku with Persona skins. Cash grabs.

      Atlus Persona team is working on Persona 5. The only Persona at this time that matters.

      • Elvick

        Doesn’t really change anything.

    • Nice Boat

      The director from P3 and P4 didn’t work in P1 and P2 so I believe they don’t want to touch other people’s works.

        Shoji Meguro was the director of the portable remakes for P1 and P2. Katsura Hashino didn’t bother, he was busy thinking about Persona 5 (He didn’t work on SMTIV either).

    If so, I’d be interested to know what you think of it. Hope you’re enjoying it.

      I’m tempted to get it this Friday. I’m not big on Mario games normally, but the Giant Bomb quicklook has really got me interested in this one.

      Most of Nintendo’s series have lost their charm for me, especially Mario, but I’m always on the lookout for games to co-op with my girlfriend, and she was a big fan of Mario Galaxy, so this seems like a good choice.

    I always find a certain charm from hand-drawn 2D or pixel art in games that the more powerful 3D games may not have.

    This is why I really love Vanillaware games and still appreciate the pixel art in old 2D games (especially Metal Slug).

    • Elvick

      Those are lovely.

    • gekitsu

      very true.
      its the same thing with drawn/2d vs 3d animation. i know most consider it heresy, but all the pixar movies? they may be cool stories, but do they offer the sensual pleasure the disney greats did? no way. not even close.
      tangled was the first one where you could see that someone with strong drawing/animating sensibilities advised (glen keane, who animated ratigan, ariel, the beast, etc) and the marked difference it made.

      its also why street fighter 4, for all the sweet filters it employs, is nowhere close to the visual brilliance and oomph of 3rd strike.

      i think you might enjoy reading “the animators survival kit” by richard williams, even if you dont draw yourself, or want to animate. (heck, it might inspire you to start. i know i cant look at the pages without wanting to start, and i usually only do still drawings, no animation.)

  • Charlottes Guardian

    Well I’m glad everyones getting along now :3 /movingon

    Since no one answered me before im going to sorta repost/reask but, I just bought Ni no Kuni, Fallout New Vegas, and The Witcher 2 and I was wondering if anybody had some thoughts on those games, did they like them, which I should dive into first, which may be overhyped, I’m down for whatever. I need you guys, I’ve been gone for a while, I wants to discuss with my peoples. ;D

    • McPoo

      I’ve played all three, opinions below:

      Ni No Kuni is a lovely looking game, and the first JRPG that managed to interest me since the PS2. I played about 30 hours and then just lost interest all of a sudden, as the combat isn’t particularly fun, and barring Drippy, most of the characters and the story are a bit meh. Still though, if you like the genre I’m sure you’ll really enjoy it.

      Fallout New Vegas: Loved it. I loved Fallout 3 too though, probably a wee bit more than NV because of the setting. Still though, NV is excellent, and if you’ve played 3 then you’ll know what to expect as it’s basically more of the same, just a bit more refined.

      The Witcher 2: Excellent game. Quite hard in places, but still good fun. I’ve not played the first one though, so trying to make sense of the story was very, very hard at first. A bit of reading around it though and it was alright though.

      Overall though, you’ve got 3 good games that should last you a very long while!

    • Elvick

      I personally adored Ni no Kuni. I loved the gameplay, loved the characters, loved the story, loved the music, loved the graphics and art design…

      Didn’t play the other two.

    Nobuo Uematsu is coming to Mexico for the first time! My friends and I will attend the “Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy” concert on March 14th, 2014. I bought our tickets last wednesday and I’m sooo excited!!!

    YAY!

  • EX+

    Man, I really hope FFXV won’t go to the PC.
    There’s a huge difference between making a game for the PC and developing on a PC.
    It’d just take so much longer and the PC fanboys would be prancing like fools, even though the game would sell terribly.

    • $83030187

      Are you already upset that it’s on the Xbone too?

      • EX+

        No, not really. It’s strange, but it’s understandable.
        PC? No. Just no.

        • $83030187

          Seeing as how all games are developed on PC, it probably won’t increase dev time at all. Also, it would probably come later, like most JP PC gamines.

          Wanting to withhold a game from an audience because some of them are jerkoffs is kinda weak.

          As a 360 fan who likes JP games, I can tell you that it’s not just PC gamers who can be arrogant pricks. Sony fanboys have that shit down to an art form too.

          I mean, I was once told that the MGS series shouldn’t be on Xbox platforms because we are too stupid to appreciate it.

          • EX+

            Trust me, I’ve met Sony fanboys that piss me off to the max.
            As for the MGS thing, there’s really no reason for the game not to be on Xbox.
            It’s made from the Japanese, yet it feels quite western to me. Not to mention, that game is gonna cost LOADS to make.

      • EX+

        With the Xbox One, it’s understandable because there are going to a HUGE amount of people buying the PS4 and XBO. FF13 sold about 1 million on the 360, so it’s logical to put it on the 360.
        But the market for JRPGs on the PC is abysmal. Barely anyone on the PC care less about ‘em. MMOs, FPS’ and stuff like that are what sell on the PC.
        There’s barely any demand for the game to be on PC anyway, which was one of Nomura’s conditions.
        Plus, if they were to make it for PC, they’d have to make the game on different levels, taking even longer. They’d also be wasting money.
        Sorry for the lengthily reply, but I just wanted you to hear me out.

        • $83030187

          I’d say the reason there is no JRPG audience on PC is because there really aren’t an JRPGs available to begin with.

          Releasing stuff like FFXV and KHIII, while porting old games to Steam would help build an audience, and in turn make SE and other JP developers more money,

          Unless a first party is funding it, I don’t think any third party game should be exclusive to any platform, unless it’s something uber niche, like a game from Gust or NIS.

          Persona 5 being exclusive to PS3 makes some sense. The KH collections being PS3 exclusive do not, unless Sony is paying for them.

          • EX+

            I’m pretty sure they did… or maybe SE just didn’t feel like porting over to the 360. They’re not in the best position to be porting things as small as HD remasters to loads of consoles (mainly time constraints).

            • $83030187

              With KHIII being on the Xbone, you’d think SE would want them available on 360, but maybe Sony did pony up some money.

        • LordKaiser

          Tactical RPGs are still strong on the PC along with some dungeon crawlers.

          Shadow Run Returns and XCOM got released not too long ago.

          But yes standard JRPGs are only sold in Japan as eroge….

    • LordKaiser

      They can release the console versions first and the PC version later. I don’t see a problem with that. Many people have a home theater PC.

      • EX+

        Fair enough. I guess that’s reasonable. I’m not sure when though. I think they’d have to get the trilogy out of the way or something like that.

  • $83030187

    It’s a shame that the successor to such a great console is such a mess.

    And I just know that MS will work with some of my favorite developers, which means I’ll have to buy one.

    • EX+

      Well, I honestly think it’ll get fixed soon enough.

      • $83030187

        It’s not just that. It’s the whole damn machine. It’s so painfully obvious that the suits at MS got their hands on it and screwed things up.

        • EX+

          I’m no Xbox fan. I think the 360 was a pretty good system though. And I’m not getting an XBO either.
          I think that with MS especially, you should kinda expect messy launches. Lol

          • $83030187

            My 360 has been perfect for me until now. Persona 5 and Drakengard 3 being PS3 exclusive, combined with my Live subscription ending right before Dark Souls II comes out means I’ll be going back to my PS3 after I finish a few games.

        • $83030187

          I’ve heard nothing but positive things about it. Sounds like I need to track down a copy for 360.

          • McPoo

            If you’re in no rush then it might be worth waiting for another Xbox Live sale, in case it pops up. Over the summer it was down to 4 quid I think. I doubt a disc version will cost too much more than that though.

  • $83030187

    Now that the hype for Persona 5 is starting to settle, I’m beginning to wonder why I’m even excited.

    The only JRPGs I have finished this console generation are Nier and Dark Souls. Maybe I’m playing the wrong games or something.

    • MrFinalgamer

      why didn’t you play Ni no Kuni!? Valkyria Chronicles? and Tales of Xillia? (i could go on and on, but i’ll leave it there)
      and if you’re into portables, get Radiant Historia, and The World Ends With You (for DS). there’s also Crisis Core, and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep (PSP)

      • $83030187

        I’ve actually played The World Ends With You and Crisis Core. Both are great games. I’m just talking about console games, but I think TWEWY and Crisis Core might be the only portable JRPGs I finished this gen too…

        Valkyria Chronicles I played for a bit, but I bailed after getting stuck at some boss thing for a few days, and I never went back. I tried the demo for Ni no Kuni, and the gameplay really didn’t click with me. As for Xillia, I’ve been thinking about picking it up but I’ve heard pretty mixed things about it. Like, it kinda wears out it’s welcome after a while.

        Kingdom Hearts used to be my favorite series of all time, but (I know I’ll get crap for this) I just can’t bring myself to play the games anymore because of all the Disney stuff. It just doesn’t do it for me anymore.

      No shock.

  • McPoo

    Out of the three main sets of fanboys, which group has the best name? Nintendrones, Sony Ponies, or Xbots?

    Xbots has a nice ring to it, and sounds very similar to the console name, for maximum confusion when spoken aloud. Nintendrones isn’t bad for these reasons either. Sony Ponies is a bit ‘out there’, but I must admit that it conjures a funny image in my head.

    On a related note, which set of fanboys have you had the worst experiences with?

    • Elvick

      1. They’re all stupid, and I’ve heard multiple variations you didn’t list.

      2. They’re all equal, and I think anyone that views any as the “worst” is just succumbing to their own personal bias. They all do the same things. They’re the same.

      • McPoo

        I know they’re all awful, I’m just going off what I’ve seen. That said, I imagine the website you’re using probably plays a big factor in the type of person you’re seeing, so you’re likely right in that they’re all equally awful.

        Perhaps I should rephrase the question as ‘Which have you had the worst experiences with?’, in which case my answer would be valid.

        What other names have you heard?

    • AdamBoy64

      Every set of fanboys is pretty awful. They’re all the same.
      I’ve had least worries with Nintendo fanboys – but that’s probably because of my own predisposition.

      But some of them are just as ignorant. I guess I was once like that too, though.

      I always thought “Nintendrones” was pretty clever. Always got a guilty chortle from me.

    • AdamBoy64

      I’m not interested in the gaming side of it, but it looks pretty nice.
      Are they fully usable PC’s – like could I buy it and put Windows on it?

      Or are they locked down?

      Well, either way, seems like they’ve hit a good pricepoint there.

      • $83030187

        You can run Windows on them. They are 100% PCs.

        • AdamBoy64

          Nice, nice.

          It’s probably an insult to the open-source community to even mention putting Windows on it. But I like my Windows and the majority of Microsoft products.

          Anyway, yeah, if PC has the games you want on it, I reckon it’d be a great device.

          • $83030187

            If I were to get one, I’d install Windows on it, and I’m sure many people will. Not every Steam game will run on SteamOS right out of the gate. I think so far it’s like 400 out of nearly 3000 games will support it day one. It would also let me play MMOs that aren’t on Steam, and my games from GOG.com.

            PC gaming is always something I have had an interest in, but I’ve always been unsure about building a machine of my own. The announcement of Steam Machines has given me a huge desire to switch, since my tastes in games has changed drastically over the years, though more and more JP developers are beginning to support PC.

            The Steam Machine mentioned in the article already surpasses the PS4 and Xbone, and it’s only $500. It’s also made by a very unknown company. I can only imagine what Valve’s own machine will be like.

            The Oculus Rift is another major reason I’m interested in leaving consoles behind. I’m a huge fan of first-person games, especially Bethesda RPGs. The thought of playing something like the next Fallout with VR is mindblowing.

            And of course you’ve got all of the other perks of PC gaming. Mods, sales from places like Steam, Amazon and GOG, better graphics, more exclusives than any platform, etc.

          I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the font really, although it looks like the letter spacing is a little far apart. It’s not impacting its readability or anything, it just looks a bit odd.

          The only other thing I was thinking is maybe the foxes chest/hands/tail end could be a different colour from the background? Just a darker shade or something? Not sure how it’d look, I think it might make it stand out a bit more though.

          • Gigus

            Hmm… maybe I should go back to the white shield and banner then. The only reason why I did the repeat with yellow is because I’m limited on colours. I’ll also get rid of the extra space in between the letters.

I know it was a stupid move Sony did but tech support employees don’t need to be ragged on if they’re helping you out as much as they can. Higher ups should be blamed.

    I’m only doing this rant because I know how it feels to work as tech support and when a customer rages at you when a higher up screws up and you have no choice but to handle the situation. I was also thanked for understanding the situation that was happening in their department.

    In short, don’t be an ass to tech support so you can have the problem straightened out fast. Only be an ass if they’re being an ass XD.

        I meant the launch event specifically. The Xbone one was full of crappy musicians performing, looked more like a gig than anything. From what I’ve seen of the PS4 launch event, it was the same sort of thing. Tinie Tempah… ugh >.<

    Thats weird. How come I can’t see my friends using their ps4s when using my ps3?

    Just finished Beyond Two Souls, was quite good. I like the jumping chronology method of story telling, and some of the acting was really good, especial Jodie.

    Shame the last 4 or 5 chapters felt far, far too long and everything went a bit mental. Dragged it down from a high 8, down to a 7.

    Still worth playing though, would definitely recommend it.

    Nothing like DAT BLACK FRIDAY deals. I secured a 3DS XL (though I decided to forego the Zelda bundle, couldn’t justify the cost on Black Friday [in Canada it had no price adjustment at all]). $149.99 was the right price for me, have to say. Snagged an eShop card so I can get Ace Attorney at last, can’t wait to dive in this weekend. I also snagged Project X Zone the Limited edition to wrap up my 3DS side of purchases. For Vita, I got a 16GB and Persona 4 Golden (gotta celebrate P5 right? Right?) and for PS3, I got Tales of Xillia at last. I felt bad for missing launch and all, though still getting a Limited Edition just makes it all worth while.

      I was so temped to get Tales of Xillia for $20 on Amazon, but I figured it would just collect dust like every other JRPG I buy lately that doesn’t have “Souls” in the title.

      Got Metro: Last Light instead, and I have a few other games on sale that I’m still on the fence about, like Soul Sacrifice and Muramasa Rebirth.

        US plus members get soul sacrifice for free. What I was really hoping for Black Friday was a price drop on the vita memory cards. 75 bucks for a 32 gig is still pretty steep.
