    Oh wow! Thanks for the banner image, Sal and Gematsu crew!

    EDIT:
    I really enjoy Guardians of the Galaxy film. It’s really nice to give very underrated Marvel characters to shine and I’m glad the film is not only really good but successful too.

    Gotta love the 70’s and 80’s pop and rock music they used in the film too.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWnRMAVWVjk

    • DarthBrian

      I’ve seen Guardians 3 times now. It’s so good.

      Not quite as good as Captain America: The Winter Soldier though, which I saw 5 times in theaters.

      But still awesome. My second favorite film of 2014 so far though.

      • Anime10121

        I honestly thought it was the best Marvel movie yet! And I knew nothing about the characters prior! It was just a damn good and entertaining flick with an EXCELLENT choice of music :P

      • z_merquise

        I really love Captain America: The Winter Soldier too. It felt more like a military/spy/action-thriller with super-heroes in it. I think it had the best fight scenes of all Marvel films.

        But GotG film is really a nice change of settings. It’s more of a fun and adventurous sci-fi film.

        • Kobracon

          Just like the comics *wink wink go read it wink wink*

    • Anime10121

      Lol dat Lum getting it in the video XD

      My personal favorite when this tune started playing :P

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt_3RL9wsFM

      Dat Groot XD

      • z_merquise

        I’m tempted to post that .gif but it’s a spoiler so not this time.

        • Anime10121

          Cant wait for this to come out on Bluray! I hope this super hero film fascination that the masses have continue for a LONG time, as it seems they’ve been getting better and better since the original Spiderman hit!

          • z_merquise

            As long as they’re all good and entertaining, I’m all for it. And yeah, they get better so I’m hoping it will continue.

            • Anime10121

              Yep for the most part, they’re definitely improving! Sure we have our Green Lantern’s, Jonah Hex’s, Iron Man 2’s and Spiderman 3’s, but nowadays, they seem to be the exception, and not the rule :)

    • bloodiOS

      I’ll repeat what I said in the previous forum. The movie is absolutely dumb. I watched and loved every millisecond of it. I don’t want to see it ever again in my entire life.

      • Anime10121

        I agree with everything except the last sentence XD

        I’ll watch this movie a lot more when I can own it :P

        • bloodiOS

          Watching it more than once will just serve to overwrite any good impression I had while watching it the first time.

          • Anime10121

            Eh… probably, but I felt Avengers was REALLY stupid as well, but I still go back for a rewatch from time to time :P

            • bloodiOS

              I fell asleep watching Avengers though…

              • Anime10121

                D:

                • bloodiOS

                  That is far from being my worst physical reaction towards a film though, I assure you.

                  • Anime10121

                    I did the same with Captain America the First Avenger

                    • bloodiOS

                      I completely forgot I watched it ten minutes after leaving the theater xD (I like the second one a whole lot more though.)

                    • Anime10121

                      Yeah the second one was great! But that first film tho…

                      I recently tried to watch it again, and it only confirmed my suspicion that it bored me…

    • Charlie

      I love this song! You just convinced me to go see this movie!

    • LordKaiser

      I don’t watch movies anymore since that industry want to control the internet.

    • Kobracon

      That was the best opening to a movie I’ve seen in a while XD

      And THANOS! It was brief but holy crap did he sell it.

  • z_merquise

    I just watched Leon: The Professional. It’s kinda old movie but it’s really great! It got Jean Reno as Jean Fucking Reno, a teenage, cigarette-smokng Natalie Portman and a crazy Gary Oldman as a crazy corrupt DEA officer.

    Gary Oldman: Bring everyone.
    Corrupt cop / goon: Everyone?
    Gary Oldman: EEEEEE-VVVVRRRRRYYYY-OOOOOONNNNNNNE!!!!

    But really, it’s a nice film and really recommend especially to anyone looking for a good action-thriller.

  • Ping92
    • Anime10121

      I DAWWWWWW’D the shit outta that scene :3

      • MrFinalgamer

        I honestly thought the girl was going to say “Yo! WTF is this!? Where’s the moola??”, but I liked the scene

  • Six

    The next Wolfenstein needs to debut at either a Sony or Microsoft E3 conference and be set to this song.

    Orgasms would be had by many.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3uxhesiKgE

    • z_merquise

      Too early for a sequel but I’m expecting it to happen now that Wolfenstein: The New Order did well. And a fantastic game too.

      Pretty cool if they use that for some more hard-hitting presentation but a Jimi Hendrix song may be nice too. I guess someone there is a fan of him that they even include him in the game as an NPC (or is it really him?)

      • Six

        Yeah, it’ll definitely be a few years before the next one. We probably won’t start hearing about it until after Doom comes out, and that’s rumored for 2016.

        I didn’t play through that route so I can’t be sure if that’s really supposed to be him or not. I’m trying to wait until I get a current-gen machine before I play it again.

        • Budgiecat

          just man up and play Alien Isolation in the meantime.

          Stop being such a scaredy cat…

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    Six you like spice of life right? Check out Ao Haru Ride and Glasslip

    • Six

      I’ll look them up, though I’ve been bailing on every anime I’ve tried since Kill la Kill after the first episode or two.

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

        These 2 are top tier

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

        Have you seen Toradora?

        • Anime10121

          Man I love that show! Just bought the set from NisA a little while ago!

          • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

            Sweet

            • Anime10121

              Yeah, and while the art in the artbook is pretty much stuff already out there on the net, its still nice to have!

    • Karysonson

      I personally enjoy Nagi no Asukara and Barakamon better though Nagi is more drama.

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

        Nice I’ll see if Crunchyroll has those

        • Karysonson

          Crunchyroll has Nagi no Asukara and btw Nagi no Asukara and Glasslip are made by the same people. I love their art style.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        I really like Barakamon so far.

        • Karysonson

          Same. It’s pretty chill. hah

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I’m watching those. Both are great so far. Locodol, too.

      Zankyou no Terror is also good. I’m three episodes in. That one’s not on Crunchy, though. Try Anime Ultima.

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    • z_merquise

      It’s for the best. The more you expect nothing, the less you’ll be disappointed.

    • Anime10121

      Better than me… I have no hope :(

      The only thing I expect is more of the same games we’ve already seen, and more indies…

      • Six

        Seeing gameplay of Bloodborne will be nice. A lengthy demo of that with the online component detailed and I’d be all set.

        • z_merquise

          They did say that there’s like a public demo of Bloodborne during the event so we can all expect some detailed gameplay impression from many sites.

          • Six

            I want to know the online stuff more than anything. I love the Souls games but I’m not the biggest fan of invasions.

            A AAA RPG from FromSoft where I don’t have to worry about some jackoff ruining my good time without having to disconnect the internet would be amazing.

            • z_merquise

              There’s no option to just disable it? I hope they had one in future games because surely, not everyone will enjoy such feature.

              • Six

                In the first Dark Souls you could avoid it, but you had to disconnect the internet to be completely safe.

                I wouldn’t have sunk hundreds of hours into both games if it bothered me THAT much, but I would like a change of pace with this game.

            • Budgiecat

              how bout a AAA Enchanted Arms sequel from FromSoft with more Makato?

              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8zwSRUPHVo

          • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

            Yeah, it’s playable to attendees on the show floor.

            • z_merquise

              That’s nice. Here’s hoping to see numerous gameplay videos as well.

          • 罪罰

            IT’S TOO HARD xD! OMG!

            • z_merquise

              It’s why sometimes difficulty were toned down in public events just not to scare them but it’s kind of annoying sometimes when people give a game a negative review just because it’s hard and not because it’s a bad game overall.

              • 罪罰

                God Hand got a 3 because it was too hard lol
                those were the days

                • z_merquise

                  I used overly rely to game review sites like Gamespot and IGN way back to but the time IGN gave that negative God Hand review is the day I decided to screw them.

                  Reviews are still helpful but they’re no longer a deciding factor if I buy a game.

        • Anime10121

          You’ll get a 2-3 minute gameplay clip that’s slightly different on every major game site…

          Burn your hope, unless you want to walk away like this :(

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      If the last one is supposed to be Mass Effect, I say no dice. BioWare is already unveiling that new Shadow Realms game. Can’t see them drawing attention away from that with ME.

      Dishonored 2 I think there were rumors about a month or so ago, but I never looked too much into them.

      I can’t wait to see Bloodborne and Rime. :3

      I’m just worried about the morning press conference. Microsoft is at 8 a.m. for me, and while I love announcements, I’m hoping they don’t announce too much, as I have a doctor’s appointment at 10:30 a.m. I’d like to be finished updating posts with screens and videos and such before having to leave the house. IIRC last year their conference was just over 30 minutes.

      • Six

        It’s Prey 2. One of Arkane’s teams is rumored to have taken it over. Probably less likely to show than Dishonored II, but still.

        • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

          I dunno. I feel like Prey 2 has entered BGE2 territory now. I wouldn’t mind being proven wrong, though.

          • Six

            http://kotaku.com/leaked-e-mails-suggest-bethesda-misled-gamers-about-pre-1149092622

            Kotaku has some pretty solid evidence, so I don’t think it’s in the same league as BGE2. However, I think it may be a while before it’s seen again.

            • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

              Did Arkane’s Prey 2 go into production before Dishonored 2?

              I kinda assumed that Prey 2 would be farther along… but now that I think of it, it can’t be further along. If they actually took on Human Head’s version, then it would be. But they started over from scratch so… yeah. Darn. We’re not gonna see it for awhile :'(

              Also, surprised no publisher came knocking on Human Head’s door asking them to do another sci-fi game after everyone got so blown away by their Prey 2 E3 demo. Sad. I want to see them make a game like that AND I want to see Arkane’s Prey 2/System Shock 2-type game.

              Good thinking though. Hoping for good stuff and expecting nothing? Nice and healthy. I went into E3 that way, and I thought it was awesome :)

  • Milewide

    Anyone here a fighting game enthusiast that can share his/her opinion on UNIEL?

    • Sky

      From what i can analyze and experience from the game, its pretty solid for an average game. The net code is pretty good. A lot of people are complaining about Waldestein’s infinite. So i’m sure that’ll be patched in the future or rather very soon. Best character to use online would be Gordeau. Grim Reapah all day long without having no fucks, whatsoever. lol

      My main would be Byakuya. He just seems cool than Gordeau. Are you planning to import this game or have a good friend gameshare with you?

      • Milewide

        I have no intention of getting the game as things stand right now. I’m still trying make BBCP my “gateway game” into fighting games. I don’t know enough about fighting games to handle an untranslated one.

        I’m asking about the game because I’m curious what people think of it. The BBCP streams I usually watch are all streaming UNIEL instead of BBCP so I got curious “what the big deal is”.

        Thanks for your reply. :D

        • Anime10121

          It is being localized though…

          • Milewide

            Ah, yes, that is right. But currently it’s only available in nihongo.

  • z_merquise

    I’m a fan of game composer Masafumi Takada. His odd-ball type of music were my favorites like in God Hand and Danganronpa:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOfIl23Areo

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SdPZ9yJvsM

    Monokuma’s theme song is my current alarm clock music. So I can always be like “Not this shit again!” everytime I wake up.

      this is fucking ridiculous. the game doesn’t even look that great to be 60gb…

      And yeah a digital only future with game data sizes like that sucks.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Sorry to hear that and I wish her/you/your family the best of luck. (´_`)

      My mom had cancer that ate away her upper right arm bone back in the 90’s – doctors took it out and she’s had a metal rod in there ever since. My aunt too got cancer 2 years ago and does some pretty aggressive chemotherapy to manage it.

      There are ways to manage it. Y’all just gotta stay positive, and listen to your doctors, and make sure you do all the treatments and therapy. Try and stay positive! It’s never good news to get, but it’s also certainly not the end of the world.

      I really do wish you the best! (・▽・)

        Thanks.

        We just found out yesterday after she found a lump on her breast around 3 weeks back. The doc said she caught it rather quickly.

        And Samsara, it’s 4. 2’s still relatively basic from my understanding of it. It’s when you get to Stage 3 and 4 that things to tend to down in chances.

        • Samsara09

          My mon also had it,but she not only survived,but she kept her breast.It was really a massive victory.it would be ood in today’s society a woman with only one breast.The stigma and shit like that,plus the self esteem problems

          So,yeah,keep your faith.Don’t fear the disease.If the medic is an ace,shit will get done right.Depending on your country,it may cost you,though,like it did for her.

          Well,I said enough.

      Well,believe in the treatment,and have faith.I think this is the only thing I can say…I am sorry,but those perhaps empty words are the only things I can do for you.

    Of course this is not the final design and Harada needs your feeback on this!

    Zafina is egyptian, so i guess this will be the first Arabian character ^^

    Good Stuff Harada-san!

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      I just saw this on siliconera! I love it personally, and hope he gets in. Usually, all you get with Arabian characters are either Prince of Persia ( who’s great, but MIA since Ubi Soft is focused on cranking out Assassin Creed games now) or terrorists and that’s bull. We need cooler characters of all types around, and this guy looks pretty awesome :)

      Reminds me of that Arabian guy that got cut from the original Virtua Fighter who probably should’ve been reintroduced into that series by now, but only showed up in Fighting Vipers. Probably because he fought with a sword… I guess that’s unfair to AM2. :D

      I’m 1 year older than Ghost in the Shell? Huh… I don’t know how to feel about that :P

      Also, isn’t ARISE: Ghost in the Shell still ongoing? To be fair – TO BE FAIR – I heard it’s terrible, lol. It certainly is a far cry from this original film, or it’s sequel. And Stand Alone Complex is really, really fantastic. So, it was kind of due for a bit of a dud entry. Still, that’s the current GITS entry so we’re stuck with it, I think.

      • PrinceHeir

        The Last episode airs this September so i’m sure they’ll be thinking about the next entry soon.

        Haven’t watched ARISE yet. People only hated it due to the change of artstyle.

        I’ll wait till the 4th one get’s released and i’ll watch everything in one go.

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          Yeah that’s what I’m waiting for too. I heard the artstyle complaint earlier on, but then as it kept releasing entries, I heard it was just plain boring, lol. So maybe “terrible” was too harsh, but I haven’t heard much beyond some sort of disappointment. Also, the product placement with Surface Tablets is supposed to be overt and tacky.

          Although the new Logicoma tanks are awesome looking :)

      I would sell my soul for a AAA open-world Ghost in the Shell game from Rockstar North, or an RPG from CD Projekt RED.

      • PrinceHeir

        I would rather have Kojima make this with open world Fox Engine MGSV Style.

        Or even Eidos Montreal with Deus Ex style of gameplay.

        Cruising the back alleys of the original Ghost in the Shell or the Chinatown from Innocence would be Godly

          I’ll have to disagree about Eidos, but KojiPro would be fantastic. Especially for an open-world TPS.

          And now I’m sad that it’ll never, ever happen.

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          I’d love to see United Front do it, based purely on how amazing they nailed open worlds, parkour, shooting and fighting in Sleeping Dogs.

          It probably wouldn’t be very smart, but man, it would be an amazing GITS action game.

          It’s funny you mentioned Deus Ex, btw. I was so hyped up for that game that I felt like jumping into a bunch of cyberpunk games in the lead up to it’s release, but couldn’t think of anything on PS3. So I picked up a couple of PS2 titles instead, including Headhunter Redemption, Project Snowblind and – dun dun DUN – Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex :)

          That would be an interesting game if they were to make it for sure, though I don’t have the same amount of faith in them since Thief. That game just was disappointing compared to anything you could compare it to. Older Thiefs? Deus Ex: HR? Dishonored? It loses in all those comparisons, even if it still far from a “bad” game. Shame.

        I wouldn’t be so excited, western developer studio with japanese IP, nuh uh. KojiPro is a good bet though.

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          I don’t know. There are a lot of anime fans in the industry, even if they don’t get the chance to show it much.

          Not like in the early 00’s, when western devs kept pumping out games like Oni (Bungie’s Ghost in the Shell homage), Septerra Core (Valkyrie Studio’s FFVII-Planescape hybrid, leaning more on the JRPG side of things), and SHOGO: Mobile Armed Division (Monolith’s pastiche of a bunch of a mecha anime, with a good amount of Patlabor in it). Plus Ubi Soft’s pretty awesome 360 Naruto titles, particularly Naruto: The Broken Bond.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbmN1FRiV88


          If given the chance, I bet a lot of developers could do a really good job with an anime license… so long as publishers trust them to do their own thing, yet crack down on maintaining the art style and whatnot.

          Plus, going the opposite way, Platinum’s, “The Legend of Korra” looks a heckuva lot better than any western-made Avatar game, iconically :)

          • 罪罰

            It could work, but I’m just very picky with my styles. They mess up the look of it and you just ruined it for me. But they can do it, you’re right, if Ubisoft did it they Rockstar can.

            Platinum making Korra, but Korra is basically anime inspired so huehue.

    The ex-Virgil guys who left Crytek have made a studio called Gunfire Games and they have been in talks with Nordic about Darksiders.

    http://www.polygon.com/2014/8/8/5983685/darksiders-sequel-gunfire-games

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      I wanna say “WOOOOO!” real bad… but I have no idea if Nordic can finance a studio and game like that. It was rad how Deep Silver took on Crytek UK/Free Radical after the whole Crytek debacle though. And it would be great if Nordic could do the same for Vigil/Crytek US.

      • Six

        The Darksiders games didn’t have massive budgets if I’m remembering right, but yeah, I dunno if Nordic has that kind of money.

        In the interview there is talking of wanting to a new action IP, so they would probably be better off pushing forward on that, or looking to big publishers for IP.

        Heck, MercurySteam screwed up the newest Castlevania game. Let these guys take a crack at it.

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          Oh how I wish Konami cared about making games still :P

          Because that sounds pretty rad.

          I do remember Jason Rubin/THQ talking about their “new IP” back before the publisher collapsed. Codenamed “Crawler” and it was supposed to be amazing, but we don’t know anything about it. I doubt it was turned into that “HUNT” f2p game they were doing for Crytek. So maybe they still have that sitting around and can shop it around to publishers if it’s so impressive?

          I really do hope they get some deal soon. They’re really talented and I just want them to be settled down already.

          • Six

            Probably wouldn’t be a bad idea for them to reach out to Sony or Microsoft either. Especially Microsoft who would let them keep ownership of their IP.

            That way if the first game is successful enough they can shop it to another publisher for a “Sigma” edition of the original and/or a sequel.

          • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

            That’s cool. I’m always shocked to see how many people seem to have heard of it at some point or are still following it closely. Blew my mind at PAX East. I figured I could be a little more sneaky here in the comments of Gematsu, to be honest, since it’s an indie game and they always suffer from awareness…

            You, like, instantly destroyed that notion, lol. :D

            • Six

              Indies usually have a pretty big presence at PAX these days, so it’s no surprise really that people would know it.

              You would think a site like this would be a little less aware, and I have read some pretty negative things about indie games in general here. :/

              Personally, I follow the goings on of Kickstarter games, and indie games in general, pretty closely.

              Lots of stuff I’m really looking forward to.

              • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

                That’s basically how I feel about the whole scene too, but I also totally see where some of the negativity seems to come from. I mean, I admit indie games still seem to have an image problem. I think a lot of the people who seem to disregard the scene as a whole do it because they think they’re 99% 2D chunky pixel art, retro-inspired, roguelike, Metroidvanias or something.

                And, to be fair, those are the indies that do seem a disproportionate amount of coverage, broadly speaking. I’ll always see mention of games that look like… uh… “Gods will be watching” or “Lone Survivor” or something. I can see that being a turnoff if THAT’S all you think indie games are.

                Don’t be surprised if you see me mostly just talk about indie games in the comments here on the Open Forum then :) I’m kinda personally invested in trying to get people to notice more cool stuff there.

                Now you know, Six. My dark secret :D

                • Elvick

                  I don’t see where they’re coming from. Indies have the least amount of funds, and a lot of them don’t have the capability to do 3D well.

                  A lot of 3D indies that are made by clearly incapable people have really really crappy animation. And personally, that’s a killer. :P

                  Indies aren’t stopping AAA games. Indies doing 2D games are probably not doing a 2D game IN PLACE of a 3D game.

                  So there’s nothing to complain about. It’s just more games. If they’re not for them, they can just… not play them. Not be a retard about it. “hurr indiestation” “durr mobile atari games” “derp greatness waits”

            But seriously, it’s an indie effort, what can I say? I WISH I was working in a studio, so I didn’t have to worry about fixing my PC when it failed myself. Or figuring out what’s wrong with my copy of 3DS Max when that screws up. All sorts of little problems, remote working with team members, all that stuff. It’s just not gonna be as fast as normal dev work, unfortunately.

          The only animation I’ve ever done was for a college class. And it was just a camera moving around everything. I did it in Maya. I don’t have the video on me anymore, but I’ll try to dig up a photo I took.

            I haven’t used Maya in a long time though. I worked on a Wii game (total bargain bin fodder, don’t worry about it) and the studio there only used Maya. And the learning curve was almost like starting from scratch again :P

            Good camera moves are some of the most fun things to do though, actually, and always good practice. Just having a scene and learning how to work establishing shots and stuff? Good storytelling skills, ultimately, y’know?

        I’m gonna get both consoles eventually, but whichever one I don’t get soon I won’t pick up until late next year if not later.

        I own both a PS3 and a 360 but I’ve realized I could have done without one of them. My PS3 collection consists of Sonic 2006, the original Street Fighter IV, Demon’s Souls, MGS4 and Prince of Persia.

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          Demons souls and MGS4.

          Those two games are in my top 5 of last gen.

      I wonder will they announce the localization at Gamescom.

      • Elvick

        I’d imagine they’d wait to see how their current stuff will do. They’ve got quite a few things in the pipeline for Vita.

        But it’d be awesome if they’d keep committing to new games for Vita.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Anyone here still play PS1/PS2 game per se cause atm i’m playing the original “Wild Arms” and any day now i should be getting the remake “Wild Arms Alter Code F” in the mail. For now i wont play the Remake until i beat the original.

    • Samsara09

      it depends.With some of the perks of nowadays’s games,I rarely play PS1 and 2 games.Not just because I have a select taste,but because most of them got re released one way of the other directly to the PS3.

      honestly,I think you are doing it in an quite interesting way.if you have the original as reference,you may be able to play Alter Code F differently,in a perhaps smarter way:like keeping your eye on for what the original did right,what the remake did well,what it din’t,etc.

    • new_tradition

      I never played any PS1 game discs on my PS3. I just don’t won’t to risk either game or system (even if it’s proven, I can’t help but be a tad paranoid >3>)

      I didn’t even own that many PS1 games and I’ve bought a few of them digitally again (usually on sale, though). Plus side is that I can play them on my PSP ^^

      In terms of what I’ve actually been playing, I’ve been going on and off with Legend of Dragoon recently.

      I still got a lot of PS2 games to get through though. Blessedly, my BC PS3 is still holding it together, and aside from a few games, can play my PS2 games without much issue, so I’ve been thinking about those games.

    • tabegoro

      I own like 3 PS3 games. The rest of the time I am playing PS1/PS2 games. I am going through Valkyrie Profile again now.

    • LordKaiser

      The original is better.

      • Elvick

        Totes agree.

    • Elvick

      Physical discs? I haven’t done that in awhile. Though I’ve played digital copies on Vita more recently… though not really recently. xP

      I have a few on my Vita now, but I need to clear out space. Filled my 32GB already. :

      Also, Wild Arms ftw. The original is the best imo. 2 was pretty great, 3 is pretty great, but I disliked that they restricted exploration by needing you to find hints before you could find places. That’s a huge bummer.

      Still need to play 4 and 5. I have them though.

        That just went up a few hours ago. There was a rumor back in April that Ubisoft was making a Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon sequel called Blood Dragon 3: Vietnam War 2. The hashtag in the link is #vietnamwar2.

        • MrFinalgamer

          Wait, Blood Dragon 3? It might be a joke, but I hate weird numbering in any series… (looking at you Alien!)

  • MrFinalgamer

    Finally finished Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (& Kai too!), and boy, oh boy, what a brilliant show. I might not know a lot of anime (or just don’t remember half the stuff I’ve seen), but this is easily on my top 5 best anime period. The story is phenomenal, the twists are unbelievable, and each death is so well done…It’ll feel weird having this void, now that I finished it, but goddamn was it good until the very end!

    • PrinceHeir

      Good for you!

      Is Kai more violent than the original? No, right? :D

      • MrFinalgamer

        I fell like Ni was overall the better, than Kai (especially the opening, although I love the last bit of Kai’s opening), but the mystery ended incredibly satisfying. Also, there might have not been a lot of violence, but episode 13 in Kai has to be one of my favorite episodes period. That alone compensates the lack of death in Kai (and holy crap was that episode brutal!).

      I loved both Ni and Kai. I still need to watch the other stuff they released after Kai.

    Just grabbed Dragon’s Crown off PSN since it has been recently added to PlayStation Plus’ Instant Game Collection. To my surprise, the game actually run at 1080p (bliss!). Pretty nice that Vanillaware could get the game to run 1080p and 60fps on the PS3. Man, I shouldn’t have cared about being deep in the red and just outright pre-order a physical copy back then (now I missed out on all the goods…)

                ;)

                • MrFinalgamer

                  There are theories that it was announced to the public in 2006, but it’s still debated by many to this day. “When was FFXV announced?” that is one of the many mysteries of this world….

                  • Six

                    The only bigger mystery is why people still give a fuck about Square Enix.

                    • bloodiOS

                      I personally don’t care about Square Enix. I only care about their games =D

                  • bloodiOS

                    Is the debate really about when it was announced or whether or not it actually exists?

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      Well, you see…The believers of its announcement were very faithful, taking every single name drop, as a sign of life, however. Some people in this belief started doubting, as such it created the great divide in the FFXV followers. Not only were they doubting the game’s announcement, but also its mere existence. This is a bloody war between fanboys, that has thankfully calmed down, due to lack of care. Although some are still highly dedicated, and await patiently for the second coming of the JRPGs…

      You mean the Vita version?

      I’m sure the mobile version will. I’d say it’s a no-brainer to bring over the Vita version too, but some publishers have skipped Vita versions of games they localized on other platforms… so you never know.

      • Budgiecat

        I’m surprised there’s even a Vita version.

        I thought the general consensus of the modern video game industry is to do the exact opposite of what the consumer wants while systematically hyping them up for massive disappoint with bullshots, delays, paid reviews, and cancellations

        • Elvick

          Give it time. I’m sure SE will screw up with something else.

Unless you got the strength to pull it right off as swiftly as possibly, or can perform surgery, taking your time and pulling those off like an amateur would just cause a whole a lot of pain and more damage.

    Under the Dog
    By Creative Intelligent Arts, Inc

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1300298569/under-the-dog

    Its supposed to be a 24 minute anime.

    Masahiro Ando (Hana-Saku Iroha, Blast of Tempest) will direct the series based on a story by Jirō Ishii (428: In a Blockaded Shibuya, producer on Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors). Yuusuke Kozaki (Fire Emblem: Awakening) is designing the characters, Kinema Citrus is in charge of animation, and Orange Co. (Ghost in the Shell Arise) is in charge of 3D CGI. Creative Intelligence Arts founder Hiroaki Yura is producing. Keiichi Momose (Steamboy, Stand By Me Doraemon) is serving as Audio director, Kevin Penkin is composing the original score, and John Kurlander is serving as the mixing and recording engineer. The goal is damn steep :(

    Edit: Got some extra details from Anime News Network and a trailer too

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkN4apus2gA

    Story:

    Creative Intelligence Arts describes the story:

    “Under the Dog takes place in 2025 in Neo Tokyo, five years after a devastating terrorist attack at the Tokyo Olympics. In the wake of the tragedy, the U.N. formed a covert ops unit dedicating to seeking out, then eliminating those responsible for the attack. Anthea Kallenberg, a girl of Swedish descent is a member of this elite group who has honed her combat abilities and has become a deadly assassin, but must come to terms as to who she really is.
    If funded, the finished product will be in Japanese with English subtitles, and also include the original soundtrack and behind-the-scenes diaries and interviews.”

      It’s posted earlier but it’s nice you post that again. It looked so interesting and bad-ass.

      I’m a huge fan of Yusuke Kozaki and him doing the character and mech designs sure is a visual treat. Plus the director also did Sword of the Stranger which is one of my favorite anime-movie.

      Were you getting an error in disqus? I tried to change my avatar today but it kept on giving me an error. Incase you dont know where it is, when you go to the homepage click on the arrow next to your avatar and select edit profile. A window appears with the avatar option in it

      • Azure

        Thank you as well, I didn’t get any error I just didn’t know where to change it.

      You need to do that on the gravatar website but you have to wait a day or so for it to take effect.

      • Azure

        Thanks ^_^.

    • PrinceHeir

      What you need is first register to gravatar then changed it there on the same account as your disqus.

      After that, go to profile in disqus then remove your current avatar. Then once it’s blank go check the use gravatar option.

      It changes your avatar much faster than waiting.

      • Azure

        Thank you, finally changed it, now just waiting for it to appear.

      I like both, though like how soft the original art is. And the outfit design in the first (aside from Adol) is way better.

      • LordKaiser

        Yeah but it breaks consistency because Adol always used the same default costume on many games so the change feels awkward.

    • Anime10121

      I like everything about the old art besides Adol, and the only thing I really like about the new one is Adol and the two chicks on the right.

    • new_tradition

      Just between these two pics, the new art feels like they “toonified” the character art to some extent. The details in the older one is a lot more evident to boot.

      Though it might be a case of showing off more characters or something. Easier to draw up a nice illustration with fewer characters maybe?

      • LordKaiser

        Yeah i agree that’s why i don’t like the new art and not necessarily because it’s different. It’s just that it looks too cheap.

        Felghana and Origins have some difference but it all went downhill with Seven XD.

            I’m planning to watch the old Jackie Chan films like Rumble in the Bronx. Someone in Siliconera recommend Project A to me. Jackie Chan films are always fun mainly because of his crazy stunts.

      I’m a lot more excited now that Blizzard has committed to keeping the console versions up-to-date.

        Are they giving the Xbox One any exclusive features?

        • Six

          I don’t think so. The Avenger Kills thing is something I could live without, but I wish Microsoft had pushed for some themed stuff like how the PS4 is getting The Last of Us and Shadow of the Colossus content.

          The flood from Halo would have fit in nicely.

    Some indie game montage trailers from Microsoft were rated for Gamescom. I hope one of their announcements is that they wised up and ditched that stupid fucking parity clause.

      I think its just trailers showing the amount of indie games coming to the console and at best a new indie game

      • Six

        They’ll probably announce some new games getting ported over but I expect they’ll have at least one or two indie games they’ll spend a little bit of time on.

              The opening for eternal punishment is my absolute favorite! It saddens me they couldn’t localize the sequel for innocent sin. I know the story for both games are good. But eternal punishment does it even better! Then after that, they would also consider to translate Tatsuya’s exclusive story.

              It’d be cool to find a video that does a whole video on it. Been wanting to see that.

              • MrFinalgamer

                    You could have the most powerful PC on the planet, and if a game is poorly optimized and developed it’ll run like poo anyway. No amount of power will fix issues created by poor development.

                    I was going to say I don’t remember the framerate dropping that low, but it did chug in the city, so it could’ve dropped that low. But everywhere else it was fine.

        NeoGAF will sink to depths I can only dream of. It will be incredible.

            It can still go deeper. I think Final Fantasy XIII going multiplatform is still the gold standard of fanboy meltdowns.

              Destiny going multi plat is comparable…T_T

              • Anime10121

                Wasnt that always intended to be multiplat though? As Bungie had left Microsoft long before it was even announced, and they had been hinted at going multiplat since the day they left Microsoft…

                • Six

                  Yup. Destiny was multiplatform from day one.

                • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

                  Yupp, the amount of flipping out that is still happening is ridiculous.

                  Its so bad Bungie has had to go out of their way multiple times to say they havent abandoned their “fans”.

                  • Anime10121

                    Oh, well I hadnt been to their forums so I hadnt known the Bungie leaving Microsoft thing was still a…thing :/

                    • Six

                      I’ve heard some Xbox fanboys are still pretty salty over it, especially on certain forums.

                      Thing is, the game could have been exclusive if the higher ups at Microsoft had let Bungie move on from Halo when they wanted to.

                    • Anime10121

                      I swear with the amount of salt gaming “fans” exhibit on a day to day basis, it could fill the biggest fresh water lake in the world and turn it into another ocean filled with their own tears :/

                      But yep, and I’m sure the same could be said about both KH3 and FF, Sony wouldnt pay so Square walked away to multiplat…

                    • Six

                      Most people are going to buy those games on Playstation anyway, so there is really no reason to pony up the money.

                      I remember when they were confirmed to be multiplat though. When Siliconera posted the news, they locked the comments straight away.

                    • Anime10121

                      As should they have, it would have been nothing but an entire thread full of bitching :/

                    • Six

                      It can get pretty pathetic. I remember reading that MGS should stay Sony exclusive because Xbox fans are too stupid to appreciate it.

                      Strangely tho, overall I don’t remember Metal Gear Solid going multiplatform causing many meltdowns. Devil May Cry 4 was a little heated, but still not as bad.

                      It really seems to be JRPG fans who are the loudest about these kind of things. :P

                    • Anime10121

                      Yeah, I remember those MGS comments too! Xbots dont appreciate “higher class gaming”, let them have their dudebros and give us back oer METARU GEA :V
                      The only thing that made V’s multiplatform a bit easier was the fact that they released the HD collection on 360, otherwise that shit would have gotten even more stupid :/

                      DMC4 was pretty big as well, but it wasnt near the FF meltdown! And yeah, it generally is the JRPG fanbase that seems adverse to even touching a Microsoft console! “TOO MERICAN, I only want to play mah games on superior Nippon technology!” :/

                      I mean, sure Microsoft has done things that I dont really approve of in the gaming industry, but so have Sony, and Nintendo! I could give a rats ass if the devil himself ran Microsoft,Sony, nor Nintendo, if it has games on it I want, I’ll find a way to play them!

                      But the thing is, I buy systems for games, and not games for systems :/

                    • LordKaiser

                      It was all because the Blu-Ray on that time. Having a DVD console and having to change discs was their ammunition against the 360 console. Then the games being on 10 DVDs jokes and memes came to be and you know the rest.

                      It was a year old port released on a pretty small platform before forums, and the gaming community in general, were as hostile as they are now.

            • MrFinalgamer

              Well, most last gen games supported 1080p, didn’t mean that the game was native 1080p. My guess is that Sony’s store is referring to its native resolution, since the game being 720p, with no kind of upscale is…weird.

              • Martian Wong

                Well, MGS 4 is a 6 year old game already. So I am not surprise if a soon to be released game got better visual than it.

        • Six

          What did they do to it?

          • LordKaiser

            Well it really was D3P of America so the creators of Onechebara are innocent.

            D3PA mistranslated most of the game instead of just getting Sony’s translation so they wasted money on that and a poor singer. They also advertized the games a a RPG with online features instead of a Online game with a offline mode who is what it really was so it dint sold well and D3P and Sony of Europe didn’t gave the game support at all and the server was shut down before we could ever play half of the total quests who was mostly disc locked content…

            • Budgiecat

                Not exactly a friend of mine sent Level-5 a letter and the reply she got said that Sony of Japan contracted D3P to Publish the game in America instead of SOA who don’t make sense tbh. Here is what she got, also that e-mail was made for that sole purpose so don’t message it.

                    the whole idea was an lolxd le epic adventure turning into a giant badass knight saving the world. But no, shit sp you have to play mp to reallt appreciate it. Nobosy wanted a pseudo lame mmo.

                    • LordKaiser

                      It was the only F2P Online RPG we had on the PS3 back then so it was that or nothing. DC Universe was too boring compared to it.

                      Also the dumbshits of D3P and Sony decided to call it WKCII and the fun thing is that it was simply a extended version of WKC. There never was a White Knight Chronicles II.

                      Now as a standard RPG………..

                    • Budgiecat

    The Division will be demoed on the Xbern for the first time at Gamescom. Ubisoft should just do a longer conference so they don’t keep taking time from Sony and Microsoft.

              It’s not really that. I tried the first episode of Karas and it didn’t really hold my attention.

                • Six

                  I dunno. The show was over-hyped to hell and back and some episodes were such a waste of time that they could have been cut completely. Not to mention the pretty poor animation quality throughout a lot of the show.

                  But it just clicked with me. It was the most fun I’ve ever had with an anime.

              • MrFinalgamer

                Watching GoT? That’s a good man! You better start Breaking Bad too! And if you like the movie Psycho, there’s also Bate’s Motel which is surprisingly great!

                  • MrFinalgamer

                    Oh Breaking Bad is VERY good. First season is fairly slow, but if you can get through the first season of GOT, then you can easily go through BB Season 1!

                    I never really watched Star Wars, but I heard good stuff about it. If you’re getting into american cartoons, then you should check out Korra! First season is great, although a bit messy. Second season ranges from bad, to beautiful, and third season is fantastic so far. Definitely give that a shot (along side Avatar: The Last Airbender!)

                    • Six

                      I’m planning on watching Korra was the series is finished so I can marathon it and I’ve already watched The Last Airbender.

                      The Clone Wars is pretty good, but you really need to be knowledgeable about Star Wars to get the most out of it, and I’ve been a massive Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember.

                      For better or worse. It’s an abuse relationship sometimes.

                      … a lot of the time.

                      Well, there’s still another season, after this one, so you still have 1 year, until Korra finishes!

                      You’re a big Star Wars fan, huh? I guess expanded universe being retconned was a big hit for you, huh?

                    • Six

                      Kind of. There were some legit great books in the expanded universe, and I’m pretty confident the new movies won’t live up to the Thrawn trilogy.

                      The news that Disney was taking over was pretty exciting, but the Clone Wars getting fucked over in addition to 1313 getting canned pissed me off.

                      My expectations for the new trilogy are pretty low as well, but they’ve done great with Marvel, so I hope I’m proven wrong.

              • Budgiecat

          Persona 4’s story was actually fun to enjoy and play . I know some people don’t really enjoy the game’s story and its characters. But it was an enjoyable experience for me. Persona 3, however, was really sad and dark. Shinji & Aki were the characters who seem to be very cool. The protagonist was kinda like me. I could relate to him.

          Sadly, I did not play persona 2 or persona 1 yet. I know the psp versions are cheap on psn. But they still have that special edition in my local game store. I’m probably gonna pick it up soon. I’m sure persona 5 will feel right at home with fans. New characters, a great story. Not much to expect from P5. I am hoping everything delivers. Persona 5 will surpass p3 & p4. In my opinion.

      They would run out of worlds fairly quickly. Their cartoons, aside from the looney tunes crew, are no where near as memorable as Disney’s.

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        They would’ve skipped a ton of their own original stuff and gone straight to all the other company’s stuff they acquired over the years.

        I could see some Hanna Barbera worlds (Flintstones/ Jetsons, Tom & Jerry, Scooby Doo), then some Rankin Bass maybe (claymation Rudolph level ftw), then maybe some Cartoon Network stuff (Dexter’s Lab, Powerpuff Girls)… but mostly, they’d be relying a ton on DC properties. Mainly because a lot of their cartoons don’t have good villains – not a problem for Detective Comics ;)

        In which case, real Batman would run into this Nomura-monstrosity:
        http://cdn0.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/35997000/batman_nomura.0.0_cinema_640.0.jpg

        Sora would dress like Nightwing, Bugs (the knight) would be dressed like Robin, Daffy (the mage) would be dressed like Batgirl, and they’d have to help Bruce Wayne defeat his Nomura-designed Doppleganger.

        Then off to Metropolis! Where’s they’d have to destroy some equally terrible, crazy, alt-universe Superman designed by Nomura instead. And Daffy would get stuck being dressed as Jimmy Olsen.

        ,.. it would certainly be interesting, that’s for sure :) I wouldn’t mind rolling around with Looney Tunes instead of Daffy and Goofy.

    Mangagamer announced tons of VN/ADV games today

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvcxAttbydM

    a highly requested extreme erotic thriller visual novel in euphoria was announced for future release with the HD remastered version of the game, which increases the resolution from its original 800 x 600 to 1024 x 768 for all scenes. Euphoria will also be fully uncensored with no cut scenes or mosaic censorship and the game will retain the Japanese voice audio, with all text and in-game menus in English.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M11KQ1zwGZo

    Another new game was announced in The House in Fata Morgana with the game being an all-ages release being targeted for a possible Steam release.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YcuqMnZrns

    Finally MangaGamer announced its acquisition of eden* and eden* plus mosaic with a catch. MangaGamer will be releasing two versions of eden*: “eden*” and “eden* plus mosaic”. eden* is all-ages, however eden* plus mosaic will contain all of eden* along with additional adult content (sex scenes), as well as more blood in some scenes.

    It doesn’t make any sense how you call an edition “Mosiac” yet it has sex scenes and blood. Unless you did put some mosaic into it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRrTd5_mYJk

    This ties into another announcement in Supipara, in which MangaaGamer will release eden* on Steam with the goal of earning $100,000 in profit. Once that goal is reached, the profits will be used to localize Supipara. Should the sales goal be exceeded once Supipara is released, the localization scheme will shift into a production scheme whereby MangaGamer and developer minori will work together to complete the unfinished Supipara chapters and release the rest of the game in the West before it sees a Japanese release.

      • bloodiOS

        I haven’t read the light novel version of that so I don’t know but as for the anime version of Mahouka, it just seems too brief, too condensed. Some important conversations and events are also removed… Seriously, simply watching the anime alone, I personally find it rather hard to take deep interest in any of the characters of Mahouka. Too many meaningful flavors were removed…

      They could do something similar, like they did last year, in which Yoshida showcased some of the features of the PS4, by sitting in a couch on stage, and started playing Killzone.

      They can do something like: show on screen whatever it says when an update has been installed, and then have someone go through each thing they added, while the public cheers.. By the end have [insert name of guy who’s doing all the talking in the conference] say “update #, out right now”.

      • shogunknight

        If they do that in this gamescom, i will be VERY impressed

    • Elvick

      I’d have to really understand how it works first.

      That huge ass bar thing is weird, so I’d hope it’s not the standard notification if it’s actually true. I don’t want that shit popping up all the time. Too much.

      If it’s like
      *notification (the current one)*
      *hit PS button*
      *expands to that*

      Then neat.

      • shogunknight

        Actually it does, sorry i forgot to include one of it. Here is an example (the last of us notification) before you press something (probably the PS button) to pop up the charm bar

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Love the style in this movie! Even if I can’t really remember any specifics… like the main character’s name, for instance :)

      The director of this, Takeshi Koike, is currently heading up the next Lupin III movie, “The Death of Daisuke Jigen” or something when translated. And it is going to be the last performance for the guy who has been doing that character’s voice in every incarnation since the original anime 40 years ago.

      Anyway, get hyped for that – that sounds like an awesome pairing! Lupin III is gonna be so frickin’ cool once this guy gets done with it :D

  • z_merquise

    So anyone here played Astebreed? If only my PC is powerful enough, I’m surely going to buy it.

    The manic action and speed reminds me of Vanquish. It’s the kind of sci-fi shoot-em-up game I love to play.

    9 days for xillia 2!Hooooooorah!Shit’s gonna get real.

    • kirby755

      Tell Me about it XD

      • Samsara09

        I just made my timeframe for the rest of August,and well,it involves playing Xillia 2 non stop,lol,along with Xillia 1.

        • kirby755

          Well that a good timeframe XD, Me i’m conflicted about to how split my time between Xilla 2 and sao hollow fragment.

          • Samsara09

            Well,to clean my timeframe,I had to stack all my obligations for the last week of august into this week before xillia 2,along with what I originally had in mind,lol.

            Well,play the shortest game first…or play the best.Your call.

            • kirby755

              Well for me, my summer quarter ends this week so now i get a 2 week break finally, so i’m glad everything turned out so well XD, Plus i’m not sure which one will be shorter for me >_<

              • Samsara09

                Xillia 2 isn’t short,I tell you.

                • kirby755

                  I know but, I’m not sure if Hallow fragment is that short or not.

                  • Samsara09

                    i see,as I thought.I don’t know much about that game…but,eh…it doesn’t look short.It may have tons of optional content…I don’t know…but maybe,if you rush it,it’s quick.But then it won’t be fun.Well,your call.

                    • kirby755

                      Well most likely Tales of Xilla 2 first, I have already waited two years for this.

                    • Samsara09

                      Fine logic!2 years ago,I seriously doubted I would get the chance to play this game.No way I am missing it now.

              Wish I could do that. Last year, Xillia lasted me months, and I expect Xillia 2 to do the same. Especially with Ar No Surge coming up next month… and heck, I’m still determined to grind my way to the true ending of Drakengard 3. And that’s gonna take awhile :P

              But yeah, can’t wait for Xillia 2! Hope it has a Day One Limited Edition too, like Xillia did last year. Haven’t read anything about it, but I’m hopeful Bandai-Namco’ll surprise us. I don’t remember hearing anything about it for the last one; just got one when I walked into Gamestop. That was rad

        Microsoft always attends though… they just never really present anything worth actually appearing for (outside of Cave shooters and VN’s)…

        • Six

          True, but they have been teasing announcements this year.

          I’m not expecting much, but details on Scalebound, D4 and Phantom Dust would be enough for me.

          And when you throw around “Microsoft”, “TGS”, and “surprises” there is always the potential for some massive freakouts. :P

    This is pretty cool! Since it’s called, “OpenSky 3.0″, i wonder if it’s, like, an open-source project and people will eventually be able to 3D print these people if they have the opportunity/resources to do so? That would be awesome!

    Do all the cool mangas now moved to damn monthly release?! It’s annoying to wait so long just for 5-10 pages of story. It’s getting very bothersome. I can’t finish Aoki Hagane, Defrag or even Bleach who was running so slow and it’s only 1 and half arc away from ending…

    • Samsara09

      well,they gotta delay it.They are probably having trouble getting new mangas to substitute them.

      Well,that’s their problem.i am not too inclined in reading manga after fairy tail and naruto.One piece takes too long…and well,reading a manga weekly or monthly sucks…gottta wait years for shit to get done.

      • LordKaiser

        I can go for weekly releases but monthly at this rate I will be 40 years old or more when I can finish them.

        Many of them started as weekly and then became monthly.. like Bleach…

        Well I guess that I should finish some old anime series then. These days I don’t feel like playing at all.

        • Samsara09

          lol…the best stuff is to wait till the manga is finished,and then read it.

      If she uses a mini-skirt it should match the style of the dress and the colors. Silk looks better on a elegant dress but cotton or microfiber looks better on casual clothes. This is for women who want their panties to be seen and there’s too few of them.

      Most women even wear pants under the skirt to not show them lol.

      Now on a naked woman…. I think decorated ones look the best but it really wont matter to a man that much when they are going into action.

        • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

          The parts are proprietary

    • 罪罰

      no, it’s not a pc.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Nope, it’s a closed platform and the games wouldn’t work that way.

      They are built around the CPU’s specific architecture, any other would be poorly optimized and glitchy.

    • bloodiOS

      I suppose if you think of the HDD as one of its parts, you can replace it with an SSD to give a slight boost. Other than that… no.

    The more I think about this image the more I’m convinced that Scalebound is going to be at Gamescom. Several higher-ups at MS have claimed to have played the game already.

    I mean, why would part of its logo be on a Gamescom banner if it wasn’t going to be there? Every other game represented has been confirmed.

    And I think if it was just any games and not limited to those at Gamescom, they’d have used D4 instead of Far Cry 4 for the number 4 part. Swery just confirmed earlier that D4 isn’t going to be there.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Technically, everything they showed at E3 could be at Gamescom, because they could show the same thing.

      To me, it just doesn’t make sense to show that off NOT at Tokyo Game Show. But we’ll see soon enough.

      Just remember, expect nothing, hope for everything. Try not to get too hyped up for specifics, otherwise, you could get disappointed.

      That’s how I went into E3. After that week, I was happy :D

  • Dinoshock

    I know this is a trivial complaint but I just really hate that when I play a FPS my character has no legs when I look down. I just think to myself they didn’t have the time to model legs ?

    • 罪罰

      It’s not quite like that but yeah, I mean, you create the player and you only animate the hands (that’s why no torso or legs) but when you do multiplayer you’d have to create models and animations for the players in front of you so it becomes redundant. So it’s a mess I haven’t delved into that much since I’m avoiding trying to do FPS but from what I’ve read that’s most basic way to do them.

      • Dinoshock

        Interesting I am in a club that are making their own mini-game in unity my friends, were making a FPS used that technique they just model the arms and nothing else. I know it saves time but still it looks odd and immersion breaking when I play a Triple A FPS that has no legs.

        • Budgiecat

          I really hate that

          some suggestions:

          Design the camera so that it’s the actual head of the character please, and not a “chest mounted steady cam”. So they can actually see their own shoulders as well as rest of body.

          Please animate proper human walking and running animation and not move like they are on a high powered electric wheelchair, or look like their lower body has a mind of it’s own :P

          Have main character speak; not a mute

          Have a dedicated cover system (no, shifting to 3rd person doesn’t count; neither does “just crouch” lol)

          Please animate said character to actually turn their head when the look left or right and not have to turn their whole body like they are 1989 Michael Keaton Batman with the fixed cowl :P

          Please animate your character so that when you need to pick up items, you actually show them picking up and lifting said object instead of it floating in mid air :P

          Also, please do not have your character point his gun everywhere and at all times, even when he is talking to his friends and team members
          In most FPS, you’re always pointing your gun at something. WTF I’m talking to a commander and I’m point a gun at his face. lol.

  • PrinceHeir

    So i was playing Gundam Reborn and i sold all the parts of Gundam Mk II(White/Black color) since they were just Class E parts.

    Now i can’t find the Gundam it anymore on the parts menu. Of course this is only story so you can’t really use any Gundam’s besides the story ones(currently Zeta Gundam)

    I wanna ask you don’t lose any Gundams here right even if you sold all the parts??

    • LennoG

      Even if you sell or keep all the parts of Mk, Mk II, or Knight Gundam now it still doesn’t matter, you will need to clear all the missions in Ultimate Mode in order to use those three Gundams.

      And a Gundam can only be registered in gallery after you have piloted that Gundam for 3/5/10 times depends on Gundam tier, so you still need to clear all Ultimate Mode in order to be able to pilot those Gundams first.

      • PrinceHeir

        I see thanks for the heads up.

        I’m loving Zeta Gundam!! My 2nd favorite Gundam!

        Wing Gundam will always be my no.1 though :)

        • LennoG

          Wing Zero is pretty awesome in this game, with his canon and 2nd musou clearing a field only take a matter of seconds. If you have the DLC, the Custom Wing Zero is even more overpower.

          The one I like the most is Full Armor Unicorn, it melts Ace pilots like mud. Too bad they nerf the original Unicorn in this one, he can’t even keep his Unicorn form after using Musou anymore ;-;

        • Kobracon

          God Gundam all the way!

    • Kobracon

      Nah you don’t lose them. Of course you can’t find it in the parts menu anymore coz you sold ALL the parts for it, so its moot to even look at the gundam as there are no parts for it to select.

    I was at Six Flags Magic Mountain this weekend because they’re shutting down Colossus on August 16th and replacing it with something else. The ride was first opened in 1978 and was then the tallest, fastest roller coaster in the world. It’s such a good ride. Went on it 6 times during my visit on Sunday.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1ZyHga34hk

    It’s also been 20 years since I’ve been to Magic Mountain so they have put in a bunch of rides I haven’t been on since then so I had some time to check out some of them. The best of the new ones I went on was Superman: Escape from Krypton. I never went on it when it was Superman: The Escape. Back then it shot you forward at 100mph up a 415′ tower and then you freefall back down. They closed it for a while and then reopened it as Superman: Escape From Krypton and they now launch you at the same speed except backwards. It’s so good.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WQXxZmLMFQ

    The other new ride I went on was X2. I still have no idea what the hell happened when I was on that ride. It’s called the world’s first 4th dimensional roller coaster because it’s flipping you around (in a set pattern) while you’re going around the track. The ride vehicles are seven rows of two sets of seats on each side of the ride car. Prior to launching they lay the seats on the back so you’re staring straight up at the sky as you hit the lift hill. Then when you hit the drop you’re facing straight down and then you’re flipping around constantly. It’s really hard to describe. It’s an awesome ride.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WTD0Hc9anw

    Other than that, we went on some old favorites like Viper and Gold Rusher and then my friend and I went on Colossus a total of six times. The last time was at night and there was a full moon visible as we were cresting the first lift hill. It was a great send-off for one of the best roller coasters ever made. I’m going to miss it. :(

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Looks/sounds painful to me in that vid. Every wooden coaster I’ve ever been on has been really bumpy and hurt my butt (~>_<~).

      But I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it and went on SIX TIMES in one day. Epic!

      I have only ever gotten on "the tallest, fastest coaster" once. Back when Steel Force debuted at Dorney Park. I love that claim because it's so, so temporary :) RC's are always outdoing themselves constantly. But it's still amazing when you manage to get that opportunity on a coaster that makes that claim.

      • DarthBrian

        That six times on Colossus was at the expense of going on other rides. But it was worth it because those rides aren’t going anywhere any time soon so I can always go on them later. Colossus is leaving though so I had to devote my day to going on it as many times as possible.

        I wish we had more time though. I really wanted to try Superman and X2 again at night. Also never got a chance to go on Full Throttle (their new coaster) because it broke down for a while. Oh well, it’s not going anywhere I’m sure. :p

        This is Full Throttle by the way. Pretty awesome ride it looks like:

    “Vanguard V” is an on-rails shooter being developed with VR in mind (Oculus Rift/Project Morpheus), and *cough* “mobile VR”(?) something blah blah. They’re then looking into non-VR platforms. It looks pretty cool so far – somewhere between, say, Rez and a more anime-tinged sci-fi world where you control a girl in a winged, robotic, armored space suit.

    Actually, sort of like the underrated “Yar’s Revenge” remake Atari put out a few years ago. ( http://store.steampowered.com/app/99120/ )

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IPM41VARhk#t=48

    Got a Kickstarter going on right now:
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662894668/vanguard-valkyrie?ref=discovery
    … but really, the important thing is how cool that video looks.

    Can’t wait for VR to actually trickle down to us mere mortal consumers :P

    • Budgiecat

      when will that actually be?

    Saw THE most Japanese thing ever on Kotaku today:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Hu14euRido

    Want to hurt your brain even more? It’s a commercial for a bank. That’s it. No other occasion than that. But to this bank in Okinawa, it’s time to bust out the holographic pop stars who move like stiff robots… then the actual anime robot for no reason!

      Hurt my brain? That was AMAZING XD

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        Some brains can’t handle that much amazing :D

    • Budgiecat

      giant transforming robot saved the commercial…

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        I feel like Giant Transforming robots could save most commercials :D

      • Anime10121

        Yeah the idol waifus were REALLY badly animated/designed! DEM FACES D:

    • Elvick

      No worse than some western commercials. Like that horrid Mr. Roof nail CG, or The General car insurance CG guy, the early ones were worse, but he’s still really shitty looking.

      Some floor installing company had an old dude that’s pretty shit too if I remember right.

      Commercials shouldn’t do CG at all if they’re being cheap.

    • Kobracon

      Culture shock. Anime is big around the world, anime is GINORMOUS in its home country. They use it to advertise anything over there. Anything popular actually. Hey if it sells, why not? When I was over there, there was an ad for some….bank…thing? But it had ALL the old skool Kamen Riders following a woman around protecting her until the bank.

  • PrinceHeir

    I’m really enjoying Touka than the main MC of Tokyo Ghoul.

    Was hoping he would be badass like the poster i saw before airing of the Anime

    http://www.cyten.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Tokyo_Ghoul_cover-1024×558.jpg

    Instead we have a whiny MC who keeps complaining on whatever happens to him.

    I read he’s not like that in the Manga. But still why he gotta be a brat when he look awesome in his mask outfit?

    I also don’t know why the show only has 12 episodes when the manga has at least 100 chapters by now.

    Smh “-___-

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

      He *gets* more badass. It takes time, though.

    • bloodiOS

      He feels more real to me like that. It’s not easy to be able to accept that your life just suddenly changed like that. That said, the boy will become more badass… well, more fucked up in the head actually.

      • Akari Akaza

        Standard or Collectors Edition?

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          Standard. But I’m hoping for a Day One limited like I got with Xillia last year. I just walked into Gamestop on launch day and got it. That was neat :)

    • Six

      I got all excited when I saw Chrono Phantasma would be $20, but it’s only the PS3 version. :/

    • PrinceHeir

      Ken’s Rage 2 and Mamorukun Curse is such a steal(already have those though)

      Lol how many times did Symphonia HD came down less than $10? I remember it even have a sale a few months ago as low as $5!!

      JoJo ASB is a nice price :)

      The one’s i’m eyeing on is One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 and Chrono Phantasm(i prefer physical for CP though) and Saint Seiya Brave Soldiers.

      • Budgiecat

        link?

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        I second Mamorokun’s Curse! I’m pretty sure that that sold horribly, but it is fantastic. Super cute, very addictive, awesomely intense little schmup with tons of content! Felt an itch to play some Pocky & Rocky, downloaded this on a whim instead of dusting off the SNES, and LOVED IT.

        Anyone out there looking to take advantage of the sale, pick up Mamorokun Curse.

            Did you not ask where the sale is? So my answer to that is simple, log into PSN tomorrow and it’ll be there for you to see. The link doesn’t work until tomorrow!

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

              I already figured that part out, what I wondered was where everyone was getting the list of games from.

              • bloodiOS

                Well, as usual, the most likely source would be PlayStation Blog. Even without that, you can follow the link tomorrow and you would get to see the what’s on sales anyway.

      This is shocking. I didn’t believe it when I first heard it on Gawker; poked around to other sites to make sure – I really couldn’t believe it.

      So, so sad. Didn’t even know that he was apparently going through a bout with depression lately, and checked into rehab in July. I thought he was doing great! He’s always been doing stuff, and he’s always been so great.

      Absolutely going to miss him. Robin Williams had a fantastic career and was a wonderful person by every account. R.I.P.

    They even cut Zeta Gundam’s final cutscene(seriously!?!?!) though at least they added a new ending to it.

    Well i’m still early(only finished 079 and Zeta’s story), but what i see here is pure awesome!!! Hopefully they’ll show more scenes like this on Gundam Reborn.

    Graphics looks ace!! I can definitely see why people prefer Gundam Musou 3’s cell shading compared to the normal graphics from Gundam Reborn.

    Steam Japanese Indie Games sale is out now? I see it in-browser, can’t find it through Steam. But still, be on the lookout for this one:

    http://store.steampowered.com/sale/japaneseindiefestival


    Siliconera says: “The sale is being held to celebrate the upcoming Comic Market 86 event in Japan.”

    And you can get a lot of games for less than $5. Fairy Bloom Freesia, Cherry Tree High Comedy Club, La Mulana, Vanguard Princess, Croixleur Sigma, Bunny Must Die, and more. A lot of stuff from Playism, Rockin’ Android, Nyu Media and more.

    Between this and the Humble sale, now’s a fantastic time to pick up Astebreed and Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae, and more awesome Japanese indie/doujin PC titles. Humble Link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly

    • Budgiecat

      Japanese indie?? I thought Indies were only made by really pale glasses, flannel shirt & Fedora and skinny jeans/Chinos wearing hipster Caucasian neckbeards?

      this one looks cool
      http://store.steampowered.com/app/263620/

      No Japanese indies for PS3/PS4 consoles or Vita?

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        Oh yeah, Budgie. Mitsurugi Hikae is a personal fave of mine on Steam. It’s just a good, arcadey, arena brawler. Play as long as you can against waves of guys, take on a boss, eventually die. Then purchase some upgrades with your score, do a little better next time, etc. It’s pure arcade goodness, and looks great. I recommend it if you dig stuff like Geometry Wars – anything that gets you in a zone, y’know?

        And I know Playism is bringing stuff to the PS4. It’s on their site: http://playism.tv/astebreed-torquel-revolver360-coming-ps4/ . Rockin’ Android also put stuff on PSN, but haven’t in a long time – not since they released Pale Crescent Moon (which is a pretty cool little action game in it’s own right). Don’t know why they’re skipping consoles now. They’ll probably get back there eventually.

        And man, don’t count them out! I’m certain some Japanese guy somewhere has the ability to grow a neckbeard or wear flannel, lol XD

        • 罪罰

          Revolver 360. is amazinh o_o

        Japanese indies on PlayStation would make sense. Japan doesn’t like sensibility. :P

      • $18114340

        There are a few Japanese indies on PSN, but Japanese companies don’t like promoting their own industry. Crescent Pale Mist and Acceleration of Suguri X-HD are on PS3 but I don’t think I’ve ever seen PSN promote them.

        • Kobracon

          Aw Crescent Pale Mist is so fun…

      • Kobracon

        Oh that, yeah thats a pretty fun arena fighter with tight controls. Its nothing BUT arena fights though, so it gets repetitive. If you love DMC spectacle fighters, you can have fun until you literally get bored of the same thing.

    Well. After getting super sick for the last few days, I finally managed to sleep most of today. I was heavily congested, but all the puking helped with that some earlier. =(

    I’m better now, but my head still is hurting, this headache has been annoying me since Saturday.

    I should be around for the press conferences from Microsoft and Sony coming up. Being sick sure sucks, I just got done reading a ton of comments I missed.

    Anyways, hope everyone is doing good.

    Edit – I will be back later all, going to try a shower.

    • PrinceHeir

      Hope you recover soon!

    • new_tradition

      Ugh, sounds awful. I hate being sick in general, but puking is never something I can get used to :/

      Not sure if it’s the same for you, but I noticed head aches are what make me feel nauseous in the first place. Perhaps dealing with that might elevate some other symptoms?

      Anyways, feel better :3

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Thanks. :)

        Yeah, I have been taking meds to try and get rid of my headache, but I was afraid it might also result in upsetting my stomach, it’s like I’m kinda afraid to take anything. That’s why i don’t like to take medicine most of the time, it seems to always help me in one way, but hurt me in another.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Ah puking…hate doing that. Worst part is when you try to get it out, but it just won’t come out. That reminds me, a couple of months ago, I hate this delicious hot dog, but the nest day I was in so much damn pain, and whenever I tried to puke, it just wouldn’t come out, and the few things that came out, were just small pieces of food. Worst stomach ache I’ve ever had.

      Anyways, gross things aside, hope to see ya in the conferences! Let’s hope we see some good stuff in there. And just to keep my believing thing going….

      MediEvil 3 BELIEVE~

    Watching people on twitter damage control how sony handles the vita is some really sad shit excuse me while i go play killing floor while watching puchimas

    • Elvick

      If this is about Tearaway, people are being retarded. You’ll never get and won’t get the same Tearaway anywhere other than Vita.

      That’s why the PS4 game is a re-imagining.

      So bitching about that is moronic. It’s a good thing to have more magical ways to love Tearaway.

      Sony’s faults with Vita have nothing to do with Tearaway. Which sold poorly on Vita, so a sequel was never going to happen. We should be happy the series is alive for a second chance.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        No not talking about tearaway I am talking about sony’s lack of support as a whole. You can’t say anything negative about how the vita is being handled without that one person saying but the vita DOES have games.

        Yes it has games but it has shit support even from its own maker ffs. The only fucking time sony has actually said something about the fucking vita is oh you can use it with the ps4.

        THAT ISN’T WHY I BOUGHT THE DAMN HANDHELD.

        But no lets go on twitter like collective idiots defending the vita by saying haters only hate on the vita because of no games when that isn’t the issue

        • Elvick

          The Vita does have games though. Just very few from Sony.

          Gravity Rush 2 is likely going to be on PS4 now. I can’t imagine it being on Vita now. But people have no full picture of the Vita.

          Yourself included. I know full well everything wrong with Vita, and everything right with it. But it seems most everyone else either ignores the bad, or ignores the good. Because they want to either bitch or love blindly.

          Shit is getting old as fuck. And Sony does say other stuff about Vita. People just want to ignore it so they can continue to spew the same ol’ bullshit.

          Tired of tunnel vision ‘gamers’ have. Enough is enough.

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

        • McPoo

          That’s why I ditched mine the January before the PS4 came out. They kept neglecting to talk about the games and kept focusing on it as being a PS4 companion.

          I knew I wouldn’t be getting a PS4 straight away, and I don’t like that direction anyway so I stuck it on eBay.

    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

    Okay just bring the prominent JPN games like The Legend of Heroes Crossbell Arc games, Phantasy Star Nova, God Eater 2, Gundam Vita games etc

    You don’t need to make your own IP games. Just hire some translators and localizers, talk to the owners of the IPs above and make a deal.

    Advertise! You don’t need to put it on TV. Just putting it on dedicated JPN game sites like Gematsu as well as your own Youtube channel and the like is enough marketing and everything will be good.

    Make a similar Nintendo Direct Channel for all your Vita needs. Add in ability to play online wherever your on the go.

      I have to agree with him.PS4 has “0 games”.You can’t call some HD remasters or ports a library.There are few games there that are truly “next gen”.

        Ugh, not that “real” next gen nonsense again. Never mind that it’s current gen now. Sheesh.

        • Budgiecat

          counting only released PS4 exclusives, the library is very small.

          • Samsara09

            But I think that the situation is different here.The library here is “small”,but some of the entries are ports,HD remakes.I don’t remember the PS3 having this.The games were all-or almost-original stuff.

            • Budgiecat

              but now we have the problem of an even more dominant Japanese mobile phone game industry which is pulling away devs from even handheld game development…

  • Budgiecat

    Concerning tomb Raider, when I see comments like these:

    “Great win for Microsoft; great loss for gamers.”

    I dun get it

    How is it a win for Microsoft?

    If tomb Raider 2013 had stayed a 7th gen only game and it were like:

    ‘”Okay…..there’s rumors of a new tomb Raider 8th gen exclusive game coming out at launch, but we don’t know which console its going to go to, but, we do know that it’ll be on one console only and not PC”, around summer of 2013 BEFORE either console launched.then I could see Microsoft “winning” figuratively, because then would be console buyers on the fence of what console to get could theoretically be swayed to get an XB1 because of it, if the game is big enough in their eyes.

    Problem is thats not the reality. Both consoles will have been out for a year by the time the game is released, Crystal Dynamics and S-E promoted it originally as multiplatform, and pushed tomb Raider Definitive Version onto 8th gen, not to mention PC as well.

    So it’s not a ‘win’ for Microsoft. People already knew about tomb Raider and have their consoles, and the people that dont yet, aren’t going to be as a majority, swayed by this obvious desperaton on both ends moneyhatting bribe move (especially if and when its confirmed a timed exclusive) the XBox1 owners or would be owners that wanted it would have bought it anyway, the PS4 owners or would be PS4 owners aren’t just going to run out and buy another console, and PC owners will get it eventually.

    All it does is seal the deal on the game not selling well up to S-E of Japan and it’s investors and stockholders high standards once again, only now on even higher odds stacked against Crystal Dynamics: selling to only a user base of 5 million or less, vs them PLUS 10 million PS4 user base and +63 million Steam users, without pissing anyone off.

    And so when the sales do meh, S-E stands a chance of shutting down the franchise and then everyone including Microsoft, loses.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Tomb Raider being exclusive helps MS to sway people in. We’re just beginning this generation, and a lot of people have not moved on to next gen consoles. With that in mind, having something like Tomb Raider exclusive, this will help people that haven’t moved on, decide to purchase the Xbone, since it has Tomb Raider. The first game was critically acclaimed, and sold really well. It’s a well established game, and having the sequel exclusive will help MS numbers.

      Now for Square. They either got enough money to cover Tomb Raider’s expenses, and then some, or they have completely lost their minds.

      • Six

        As a huge fan of both Xbox and Tomb Raider, I don’t like this deal. It should have been for exclusive DLC at most.

        The money spent on this should have gone towards internal development and/or funding new games. Even if it’s just smaller stuff like D4, Phantom Dust or Killer Instinct.

          I doubt anyone really likes this deal, but hey! Business wise, it makes the most sense for MS, since now they have a game that can compete against Uncharted 4 (which is really the reason they made this deal). I’m not personally really salty, since I have yet to play the game (I’ll probably just wait, and play the definitive edition whenever I get a PS4), but my guess is that the deal will expire by summer 2016.

          • Six

            They didn’t need this to compete with Uncharted. They’ve got fucking Halo 5 :P

            • Budgiecat

              and even still: consoles sold. Youre talking double the amount.
              S-E are morons lol

              • Six

                It’s actually really frustrating, being such a big fan of the TR reboot.

                Such potential with Rise, and SE fucking kneecapped it.

          • Budgiecat

            Its not going to compete with Uncharted 4 lol

            they are daydreaming if they think that.

            • MrFinalgamer

              They’re both very similar (ironically), it’s not really surprising to see that as the reason they got the game.

              • Budgiecat

                that may be but they are not touching those sales no way; not as an exclusive 3rd party on a struggling console…

                • MrFinalgamer

                  It’s not meant to sell better, but rather show “hey, they might have Uncharted, but we have Tomb Raider!”. Essentially, that you’ll get a similar experience on the Xbone. as you would on the PS4…plus Halo, of course.

                  • Budgiecat

                    Its not going to make em any more money then they already were gonna make and they risk damaging the future of the franchise if S-E gets frustrated with ‘low’ sales again and decides to just kill it….

      • Budgiecat

        I think if thats the case, Microsoft is once again underestimating the awareness of their consumers again.

    • Six

      Rise of the Tomb Raider was never announced as multiplatform. Back at E3 nothing was said about what console(s) it would be on.

      • MrFinalgamer

        It was heavily implied to be multiplat, even MS own press didn’t mention it as an exclusive…

        • Six

          Nothing was implied. People assumed, and you can’t really blame them.

          No one saw this coming. It should have been announced exclusive right from the start. I keep reading people claiming it was multiplat but that was never confirmed.

          • Budgiecat

            It doesn’t matter if they never said it; you know publishers in this industry are so shady and vague as it is. the point is it doesn’t make sense for S-E & CD to expect great sales results via this piss poor strategy when prior, S-E was crying about tomb Raider 2013 not selling up to their standards while being released on multiple platforms.
            How the hell do they expect to exceed that when the majority of the purchasers are on the other 2 platforms? Makes no sense.

            • Six

              They are obviously getting a hefty chunk of change from MS for this, and every insider on every video game forum ever has said it’s a timed exclusive.

              Factor in reusable assets from TRDE and it’ll do fine.

              Not as good if it was multiplatform from the start, but lol Square Enix.

              • Budgiecat

                Well, besides the fact of Square-Enix shady businesss as usual, not showing us any gameplay footage, they did recently announce they’re using some new high tech black light face paint for 7000 points for motion capture, so this isn’t exactly a cut n paste job.

                But whatever Microsoft threw at them I dont think exceeds what PS4 & PC holiday sales would have surmounted to.

                If thats the case, Microsoft is taking a sacrificial financial loss on principle to save face and have a “AAA” 3rd party exclusive just for temporary bragging rights.
                I really dont think thats the case.

                Its more of lol Square Enix as you said.

                Its a bad move. the exclusive sales wont impress S-E investors, it ruins whatever little good will S-E has in the eyes of consumers, and when they do release the game later, the hype will have died down and the game library competition will be even more stacked against them.

                they’re not gonna beat Uncharted 4’s #’s I think everyone knows that, so the wiser move would have been to release the game now this year on all 3 systems before competion gets stacked..

                • Six

                  And I don’t get the claim that MS wanted it to compete against Uncharted 4.

                  Halo 5 is next year, and Microsoft doesn’t shy away from flexing their advertising muscle when it comes to that series.

                  Rise of the Tomb Raider on all three (or five) could have outsold UC4. Now it’s impossible.

      • McPoo

        They’ve not stipulated the length of the deal, so you never know ;)

        • bloodiOS

          If they have the power to extend it all the way till the end of the generation, they would’ve confidently said exclusive to Xbox and not just during next holiday.

    Shopto.net have Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition (or whatever it’s called) available for pre-order at £42.00.

    … That’s mental.

    The game is two years old, has been given away on both PS+ and GwG and is easily found in most shops for less than a tenner. Is there really enough extra content/polish to warrant another 32 quid?

    • $18114340

      Considering how sellable GOTY editions with updated graphics have been, the correct answer is that it doesn’t matter whether there’s enough to warrant a re-release because it’ll make money anyway.

  • Samsara09

    well,guess it’s settled the tomb raider issue.So,in holiday 2015 it’s exclusive for XBOX…and then,by spring or so in 2016,it’s gonna be released for PS3 or 4,probably 4…correct?

    Shit…this is gonna be some wait.But,eh…already waiting 8 years for XV and KH3,lol…waiting a year and half isn’t gonna be so bad…

    • Six

      I give it at least 6 months of exclusivity before it releases on other platforms. A year tops.

      Fall 2015 – 360 and Xbone
      Summer/Fall 2016 – GoTY or whatever for PS/PC/XBOX platforms.

      • Samsara09

        so much?Ah,I remember.You like microsoft.I have nothing against it,but I doubt Square will let it go for more than 3-4 months,at most 5.With each month they leave out of the PS4/PS3,they lose tons of money.

        It’s fact that the brunt of the fans are in PS3/4.

        • Six

          Me liking Xbox doesn’t mean I necessary like this exclusivity deal.

          I’d rather the game had been multiplatform right from the start so it would sell more. My love for Tomb Raider far surpasses my loyalty to any console brand.

          • Samsara09

            I said that so that you don’t let it influence too much your judgement.You usually make smart remarks,so perhaps I should have trusted you more on that.

            but yeah…I hope you undestood what I said,eh.I am happy to see you enjoy so much Tomb Raider.I have recently become a fan of it.Hopefully we can talk about it :D

      A pleasant surprise. It’s nice that multiplats can’t really ignore PC (or to be more specific, Steam on Windows) these days. Much better than halfway through last generation where you were lucky if the developer spat out a half-assed PC port with X360 controller prompts on the title screen.

        I’m absolutely horrified about this movie. I’ve been a huge Star Wars fan for the better part of my life, and the thought of Disney cocking this up is just… ugh.

        • new_tradition

          That’s kind of what I’m banking on too. If I didn’t know before hand, I wouldn’t have known the MCU movies were under Disney’s name. I can assume SW movies as well will maintain their own atmosphere.

          Although I’m trying to figure out if there were any scenes in the past movies that Disney might not have signed off on, but SW already feels like an all-ages series, haha.

          • KingNigma

            All I could think of rn is the burning scene from Episode 3.

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          I’m not worried about Disney at all. You’re right with Marvel, but you can also look at how they respect, and deal with Pixar and the Muppets too.

          Granted, f–k their Phineas & Ferb specials for Avengers and Star Wars, but that’s just an annoyance. For the real deal, they know when they should back off.

          I’m more worried about J.J. and the script and the apparent reliance on Han Solo/old man Ford. None of that sounds great. J.J. Abrams has never made a movie/demonstrated a style that seems like it would mesh with a science fantasy action-adventure like Star Wars. I’m not gonna make a joke about lens flares, but I am worried about keeping the camera cut in too close, and shakey cam stuff, etc.

          But it’s hard to disagree with the cast in general, and JJ’s enthusiasm, and all the stuff they have show. Practical FX! They showed new Henson puppet aliens and the new blue X-Wings already, and it looks great!
