So Final Fantasy VI is next gen, all these years later?

Next gen is just a made up moniker. The majority of games are things that could have been made on previous gen systems with some changes. It takes a real genre changer, like Mario64, or GTA3 to be worthy of being next gen.

Assassins creed is maybe next gen for the xbox 360 but not on the PS3

it stands out next to games like Halo3 and Forza2

But looks really sub par compared to killzone2, mgs4, uncharted and R&C

Jade Raymond need to get her a$$ out the spotlight, she just a pretty face to market the game, i bet you she dosent know how to do sh!t but sit there and take pictures and say what shes being told to say, i never seen a person involved in a videogame try to take the spotlight all the time, its really unfair cause its a lot of other people working on this game that youll never see. Jade PLease [email protected] off im tired of seeing you.

I'm pretty sure she tells everyone else how to do their jobs, seeing as how she's a producer...
