As much as I want to say XV, I'm pretty sure Persona 5 will be the better game. Persona games are just so well made, and they have great music and great characters with great voice work. I have a feeling XV will have a lot of problems. The voice work is already a problem, and I have a feeling that the battle system, the game's performance, and the camera are all going to draw criticism despite the extra work being done on the game. Having said that though, I'm looking forward to X...
That's cold. The guy put so much time into making it. I remember stumbling upon it when it was like halfway to completion roughly 2 years ago.
The Legend of Dragoon is a poor game. I don't get why people like it. Flat characters, amateur music, cringey names for people, places and things, poorly translated or poorly written dialogue, frustrating unreliable battle system, and Final Fantasy VII copying. The graphics for the environments are good, but that's about it. Anyone who likes that game should play it again when they get the chance - I think you'll get a shock.
Haha touche! But no, I don't think I ever had a baseball cap phase, nor have I ever owned one of those sports-looking t-shirts. Also my hair has never and could never look like that. I don't know why, it was just the first thing that popped into my head haha.
I don't know about this. He moves so slowly. I also think the graphics should be a lot more vibrant, bright and cartoony. There's a distinct lack of vibrancy and brightness. The whole thing just looks pretty unfinished (which I suppose it probably is).
Noctis looks like an embarrassed teenage kid on holiday with his parents in that picture - maybe at a water park or something.
Yeah I've got to agree. In some cases it's bad voice acting AND bad flow (Gladiolus and Ignis), and in other cases it's just bad flow (just about everyone else we've seen so far). I never choose Japanese if it's an option, but I think I'll have to this time.
All the lines sound like one-liners, Ignis' voice is just bizarre and inconsistent, Gladiolus constantly sounds like he's doing a voiceover for an action film trailer, and the dialogue in...
Wormholes and crystal zombies? MGS is weird, but it's not that weird. I think Konami have gone over the top trying to recreate MGS's weirdness without Kojima. It isn't just about wacky, lol random weirdness - there's always a good reason for the weirdness in MGS.
I know, but he's clearly putting on an accent anyway. I don't think that's his regular speaking voice or anything. British people can do other kinds of British accents badly. I'm Irish and there are many Irish accents from different parts of the country that I'm not able to mimic - I sound silly and inconsistent when I try.
EDIT: In fact, look up Adam Croasdell on youtube to get a sense for his actual accent. Then listen to Ignis in the gameplay. Great ...
Ignis sounds terrible - sounds like someone poorly putting on an accent. Really inconsistent sounding accent. Gladiolus also sounds terrible - like he's constantly doing a voiceover for some hollywood action film trailer. Also, a lot of the lines sound like one-liners, rather than natural dialogue. Noctis and Prompto sound pretty decent though, and Cor sounds perfect. I think I'll have to go with Japanese voices for the first time though - I don't think I could hack having to list...
As big a game as Human Revolution was, I think it was a borderline sleeper hit. So it's not really a surprise that this next one hasn't generated much hype. It's failing to generate hype not because it's a bad game, bad because it's a game that's not really on a lot of people's radars.
Oh right, well true or not I don't really care. I can wait. It'll come out when it comes out.
Just so long as it's not getting delayed BECAUSE of the VR experience. If that were the case I'd suggest they definitely give the VR experience a miss.
It's basically been confirmed though hasn't it? Gamestops are getting stickers with the new release date on them to paste over the old date on the displays.
I don't care when it launches, so long as it does and it's good. Having said that though, I doubt this is true. They committed pretty hard early in the year.
There's a pretty big difference between the Nvidia and AMD stuff in the recommended specs. Would the more powerful stuff be for VR support or something?
Yeah, I think in the back of my mind I knew it was a survival game, but only a kind of "lite" survival game, with the real focus being exploration. I did not know it was this much of a survival game, and the early hours of the game definitely sound frustrating and not fun, but I'm assuming it gets easier as you progress. Would have been nice if they'd put less emphasis on these survival aspects though - kind of stressful and distracting when there's a timer ticking away ...
"there were never plans" - XV has probably changed over the course of its development more than pretty much every other FF game. Numerous "plans" changed, so it's possible they could have ended up making her playable in some way. I'd say many originally planned things were scrapped, and I'm also sure there were never originally plans to add lots of things to the game that ended up getting added. To talk about what was and wasn't originally planned for this ...
That's true haha. Appearance wise she's gone from strong-looking (Stella) to weak-looking, and she seems to be getting weaker. Very hard to believe she's as stronger character now than Stella was.
I've never gotten over them dropping Stella. She would have made an awesome potential party member too.
I also don't like how they changed Regis' appearance. He looks like he belongs in some generic western high fantasy game or film now. ...
