    • Samsara09

      Wait!What about those unannounced games of theirs?Will it be tomorrow and Thursday?

      • MrFinalgamer

        Tomorrow, and Thursday. Although, 3 of those games are already known. 1 being the FFVII mobile game, and the other 2 being tomb raider games.

        • Samsara09

          Shit…so…only 1,at most 2 games,eh?Let’s cross our fingers it ain’t another “glorious” mobile game.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        The unannounced games from a week or so ago were probably the Tomb Raider games. I don’t expect to see surprises here.

        • Samsara09

          well,did you see what deathbrian and tetsuya said?

  • Zackasaur

    Wooh! I want to see the new FFXIV content, and I’m always in love with KH.

    Theatrhythm is always charming, and I totally want Rise of the Tomb Raider.

    If they don’t announce Type-0, then I’ll be playing the fan translation very soon.

    • Samsara09

      I am at the end of my wit,especially with that VII motorcycle mobile game.

  • Six

    Rise of the Tomb Raider is hands-down my game of E3, even with just a CG trailer. I loved the reboot that much.

    Anything SE shows at this point is just gravy.

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      I’m 100% with you. I adored the first one, and I’m already so thrilled about the sequel. That CG trailer was the only real moment at this E3 that I got that fluttery “OMG DIS IS E3!!!” feeling.

  • DarthBrian
    • MrFinalgamer

      WHAT!? DON’T JOKE ABOUT THAT STUFF!

      • DarthBrian

        GO TO THE LINK! IT’S REAL!!!

        • MrFinalgamer

          IS THIS REAL LIFE? I THINK I DIED, AND WENT TO HEAVEN!!!! OMFG!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE I WAS RIGHT =’D

          • DarthBrian

            I KNOW RIGHT!? I’M ABOUT TO PASS OUT FROM ALL THE SHOCK AND AWE!!! O_O

    • Samsara09

      FUCK!MY GOOOOOOOOOOOD!
      Square,please,forgive me,your humble fan,for my insolence!

    • Anime10121

      Beat me to it :D

      • Samsara09

        I am crying here!

  • Zackasaur

    Heyheyheyheyhey!!!

    FFXIV: A Realm in Peril announced!

    Since this is related to Square-Enix, I’m leaving this here:

    • KingNigma

      !!!

    • DarthBrian

      Stealing my thunder! T_T

      • KingNigma

        You had no proof though

        • DarthBrian

          I provided a link to the playstation blog where someone from Square-Enix posted an article about it. There’s no bigger proof than that! :(

          • KingNigma

            Oh, didn’t see it.

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

        I didn’t even see your comment until after I posted XD

        I just copied and pasted the link, then checked the comments and noticed ;w;

        • DarthBrian

          Look at all the replies to yours and how few there are to mine. T_T

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

            I carry a following, I suppose @w@

          • Samsara09

            I know how you feel D:

    • Six

      And this wasn’t at Sony’s show because…?

      • GetOffMy_Lawn

        Couldn’t fit it in, they had to talk about their TV shows and their numbers. *troll face*

      • Luna Kazemaru

        because square wanted to do it?

      • Budgiecat

        Where were you all this time??

    • MrFinalgamer

      I’M DONE!!!! IM FUCKING DONE YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!! I FUCKING CALLED IT FUCKING CALLED IT!!! OMFG!!!!! YES!

      • Ghost Doge

        I came here just to see your reaction. I am satisfied. Time to go about my daily business and check in later. Don’t drop dead from hype :D

    • Samsara09

      Square Enix,thank you.And forgive me for not believing in you.

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      OMG and it’s the North American account… LOCALIZATION!!!

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    wait…….. that girl just called Tidus “Tee-dus”. Is that really how you pronounce it? I thought it was with a long i…
    EDIT: What the literal fuck………… This is the most shocking news of E3 for me.

    • DarthBrian

      Yeah that’s how you pronounce it.

    • Zackasaur

      We were all shocked when we found out.

      You’re just a bit behind the curve. xD

    • KingNigma

      I swear in Dissidia and KH2 he was called Tye-dus”. It’s weird.

      • GetOffMy_Lawn

        YEAH! My whole life has been a lie……….

      • Anime10121

        But in KH1 he was called Teedus, the correct pronunciation.
        Dont feel bad tho, I called him Tyedus for the longest too…

  • Anime10121
    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Yeah. Awesome!

  • Six

    I’m reading that Type 0 is also coming to PS4 and the bone. Can anyone confirm?

    • Zackasaur

      No, the press release on the PS Blog only says Vita. It would mention PS4 if that were the case.

      I’m not saying that’s not the case, but it’s weird that all the big press releases are just reporting Vita. Vita is definitely the #1 platform for me here, but I’d totally buy this twice if it’s also for PS4.

      • Anime10121

        Aw man :(

      • Nesther

        Type-0 HD is for PS4, Xbone and Vita.

        • GetOffMy_Lawn

          Where are you reading this? Link please?

          • Nesther

            It’s literally right on Gematsu. On the front page.

            • GetOffMy_Lawn

              Front page won’t load for me sooooooooo….. sorry?

              • Samsara09

                I just saw it.It is true.

        • Anime10121

          FUCKING HYPE! Where yall getting this from tho?

        • Guest

          I definitely saw that reported, but it had no source at all.

          All the official stuff I’ve read so far just says Vita. So… If it’s also for PS4, I guess this press release is getting mixed up a whole lot.

          • Nesther

            Nah, it’s on all three platforms. Says so right in the press release.

  • Zackasaur

    OMFG TYPE-0 HD FOR VITA.

    I AM FREAKING THE FUCK OUT.

  • MrFinalgamer

    I KNEW IT! I BELIEVED, AND IN TIMES OF DESPAIR, SQUARE CAME TO HELP US ALL!!!! BELIEVE!!!!

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      lol I think I’m more happy for you than I am for the fact the game was announced. I just kept reading your comments thinking, “This guy can’t honestly be expecting that…right?”

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      Sometimes dreams come true!!! ;)

    • Anime10121

      Pinocchio taught you well, or was it the young grasshoppa ;)

    • Samsara09

      Man,I am crying here.Finally,after my many years of devotion to Square,I got a return!i am crying here!
      And I imagine those fucking haters are silent now!

    • Budgiecat

      Hey…..

      …you believed

  • new_tradition

    Holy fuck. At last,Type-0 in English will get into my sweaty hands *_*

  • MrFinalgamer

    Wait, is Type-0 HD for Vita only, or for consoles too?

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      CONSOLES TOO

    • Nesther

      Type-0 HD is for PS4, Xbone and Vita.

  • Samsara09

    THIS IS OUR VICTORY!

  • McPoo

    Do these guys do Just Cause? I’d like another Just Cause.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Having a tough time watching the stream right now all, sorry.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    It just keeps buffering out on me, or I would be able to follow along better.

  • Six

    Can a brother get some Sleepy Dawgs 2?

    • KingNigma

      thatswhatimsaying

  • futuristic_imagination

    Finally, I was able to go to this page… dang the traffic on this site is so high, its really slow.

    Also, Yay for the Type-0 announcement!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Looks like its on break for a minute, what did I miss, anyone?

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      Well, I’m seeing it say it starts in a few minute’s, half past the hour? O_o

    • KingNigma

      Nothing much just random parts from last E3.

      • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

        Huh! So you’re not seeing the 12:30 – 1:00 sign?, or did I miss the highlights from last E3?

        • KingNigma

          It was this screen for a while then the clips showed up for a few minutes then went back to this screen.

          • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

            Ah okay thanks, I didn’t see the clips so was getting worried. >_<

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              Right. It’s starting back up now, but I missed most of the intro because of buffer.

  • LordKaiser

    She is reading.. Was she not prepared? I guess she’s there just for the cute voice.

    zzz

    • new_tradition

      Maybe English isn’t her first language, so she’s reading off the script? Her Japanese sounded pretty fluent, so maybe..?

      • LordKaiser

        She is asian?

        • KingNigma

          She looks mixed but she can very well be.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Or it was just to remember names. They don’t have a TelePrompter on hand most likely.

      • LordKaiser

        I see, then I forgive her.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Is this like a pre-recorded video? Guess so. I’ll never turn down FF music though lol.

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      Yeah, still got chills from that live cello player yesterday, my favourite genuine surprise of E3 so far. ^_^ (though to be fair I missed a LOT of stuff at this point :P)

  • KingNigma

    That keyboard with inverted colours.

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      Well, with a hat like that the guy’s obviously stylin’! :P

  • Budgiecat

    What I miss…

    • LordKaiser

      A kawaii girl with a cute voice.

      • Budgiecat

        that’s it?? Japan’s got plenty o’ those…

  • LordKaiser

    Ok much better! She drank coffe!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    I quite liked the music. And subtitles are always nice.

  • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

    That beat!!! It’s almost like an old school Ridge Racer/Ace Combat game! O_o

    Edit: Well, some of the more mellow tracks at least.

  • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

    Damnit, I’m now being hit with a YouTube limit break! >_<

    *buffering*

  • DesmaX

    I just arrived. What’s this?

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      Square Enix Music Presents: Nanaa Mihgo’s

      A Realm Reborn will be in about 10 mins according to the schedule.

      • DesmaX

        Oh, thanks

  • LordKaiser

    Loading…

  • Budgiecat

    I dont wanna dance…

  • LordKaiser

    Loading…………………………

    • KingNigma

      Refresh? Still playing for me.

      • LordKaiser

        LOL I was kidding

        • KingNigma

          :(

  • LordKaiser

    XD Well time to take a break till it returns.

  • Blaz

    Mean WHile

    Tales of Hearts R will have Japanese Voice Overs with localised subtitles!

    • Budgiecat

      get me it

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    I had to lower the buffer to get it to play for me. 480p it is.

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      Welp, if it makes you feel any better I’m on 360p!!!! >_<
      It's stopped buffering though so can't complain.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Yeah, same here. And I like the music. ^^

        • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

          Yeah it’s nice, E3 so far has been like a random quality film with an occasionally awesome soundtrack so far this year.

    • Zackasaur

      I’m having good luck at 720p right now, but I’m on a connection over 100mbps. lol

      YouTube streaming is the worst streaming I have ever used. Period.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    I added a picture to the post above. I feel so special. One that Sal will have to fix or show me how to fix it. xD

  • new_tradition

    • Zackasaur

      The hype is real.

  • Budgiecat

    How can you have a hug emote? Everyone’s a ghost…

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      Casper wouldn’t like that. >_>

      • Budgiecat
        • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

          Heh, I like the description. :P

      • LordKaiser

        Now that I see your name I realized that I haven’t visited Wendy’s in years.

        • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

          I have that effect on people. >_<

        • Budgiecat

          She’s waiting for you…..

        • Budgiecat

          She wants your hot n’ Juicy 1/4lb single of north American beef to give her a whopper in her BBQnator and finish her off with a fix n’ mix frosty shake on her Double Stackers…

          • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

            Well, that made me hungry… In more ways than one.

          • KingNigma

            Whopper is from BK though. She ready for mixed babies.

  • Budgiecat

    He said type zero so I thought he meant a crossover -_-

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      That did catch me out for a moment there.

  • new_tradition

    Omg, that ninja is such a Shadow throwback <3

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Awesome!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    FFXIV has needed classes like this for a while now.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Stealth class sounds fun.

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      As does mixing poisons!! The rogue looks cool too.

  • Budgiecat

    He just dissed FF XIII Shiva

    do more

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Building airships sounds awesome!

  • Bonn Bo

    This is getting a little dull…

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      It’s mostly for FFXIV players. They do this every so often, it’s a live letter. This is a special one for e3.

      • Bonn Bo

        the FFXIV players must be ecstatic with this then lol kudos to this guy for answering all these questions though

  • new_tradition

    Not that I mind, but is this running into over time? I’m in EST time, so PST is 2 hours back, right? Schedule says this thing was supposed to be from 1pm to 2:30pm, and it’s already 5 pm here, so…

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      This has about 30 more mins to go.

      2:30 p.m. – Square Enix Presents Interview: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call Special Guest: Producer Chiro Hazama (English and Japanese)

      Coming up next.

      • new_tradition

        Oh, so it’s 3 hours difference, not 2? ‘Kay

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          Depends on time zone. I’m CST so it will be 4:30 for me soon. Which is when the next part is supposed to start.

          • new_tradition

            EST here. My PC time says it’s 5:07 pm, so I guess 5:30 for me is 2:30 there then xD

  • KingNigma

    Had a feeling they’ve been talking about XIV for a little too long.

    • Bonn Bo

      same feeling dude

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      The live letters are always about this long. They answer lots of questions from the community.

      I can see why those who don’t play would be bored of it.

      • KingNigma

        Gotcha

  • new_tradition

    Right, I’m just gonna say it: Yoshida is fucking adorable <3

  • Pyrofrost

    Welp, I will probably be retiring my MNK, we’ll see.

  • new_tradition

    Ahhhh, why is my internet so shitty? I wanna get back into FFXIV, but…Shitty internet T.T

  • new_tradition

    I’m really excited for the FFXIV songs in Curtain Call. I know there’s a list somewhere of all the songs in the game, but I haven’t seen it yet >.<

  • new_tradition

    I WANT HIS SHIRT

  • new_tradition

    So the producer of Curtain Call…never worked on any other video games? Interesting…

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      I guess they are giving him a shot?

      • new_tradition

        Well everyone needs to start somewhere. And if he did the first Theatrhythm, it’s a good start ^^

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          He seems to be well experienced in regards to the company, and the previous Final Fantasy games. That means something I suppose.

    • KingNigma

      Have to start somewhere.

  • new_tradition

    Wait, wait, FINAL iteration? No more Theatrhythm after this? :O

    • KingNigma

      Well it is called Curtain Call.

      • new_tradition

        Still, I’m just surprised. They could just keep releasing song collections or something…

        • KingNigma

          Agreed. I still feel like this series is just came out. Maybe it’ll still be supported via DLC.

          • new_tradition

            Yeah, good point.

            Maybe they’ll do different series? Kingdom Hearts? Star Ocean?

            • KingNigma

              Seeing Chrono Trigger music in this would be cool too, who knows.

              • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

                I got the impression they meant the last Final Fantasy themed version, so there’s hope the series will continue!

                • KingNigma

                  This is true.

  • new_tradition

    I read about that resetting to lvl 1 thing. Probably not something I’ll do personally.

  • new_tradition

    He said FF16, hur dur

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Yeah, I was like lol wut?

  • KingNigma

    His favourite song from XIII is the same as mine. The one that plays in Oerba.

  • new_tradition

    lol, FF7 does have some good songs

  • new_tradition

    Think carefully, what you say will determine if I cancel my pre-order or not

    *stares down*

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Time for me to go walk the dog. Kingdom Hearts is up next!

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      Cool, take care Zero.

    • new_tradition

      Not sure why they broke KH 2.5 down into two separate shows; they’re next to each other anyways xD

  • new_tradition

    Staaaaahp, I’m not subscribing to something that only airs one week out of the year >.>

  • new_tradition

    Frickin’ employee people and they’re awesome shirts. I want them all ;_;

  • Bonn Bo

    i should have put that intro to get my message read online god damn it…

  • KingNigma

    So no multiplayer.

  • new_tradition

    Nooooooo, no multiplayer!!! Awwwwwww!!!!

    But at least we know now ;_;

  • new_tradition

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, they managed to whip up three hours for re:coded? They say it’s integral, but it’s really only the ending that was important IMO

  • Bonn Bo

    was that question seriously just asked?

  • new_tradition

    I swear that’s three questions I heard from a “Brittany from Miami, Florida” O_o

    • Bonn Bo

      I call shinanigans

  • new_tradition

    Ooooh, 70 people for a remaster. Impressive~

  • new_tradition

    *squints* Is that to scale?

  • new_tradition

    Ooooooh, so that’s what there’s two shows next to each other. The second one is in Japanese…

  • Slickyslacker

    …They cut off the teaser.

    • new_tradition

      Haha, I noticed that too. Oh well, it’s already out there :P

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    I missed the KH stuff. I had a rl emergency I had to take care of. Sorry I went quiet everyone.

    • new_tradition

      Hope everything’s okay :O

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Yeah. I just had to run some errands. Was the KH stuff good? Considering I haven’t played BBS, probably a good thing I missed it?

        • new_tradition

          Just talking, no footage. Only real info worth noting is that Mirage Arena doesn’t have the multiplayer thing PSP had.

          Though they’re working on KH3 at the same time, so time constraints and such to explain it.

          Lot of Fan Q&A, but mostly it boils down to 2.5 ReMIX is a high res Final Mix compilation and such. So nothing new really :P
