Oh is this the sequel to Moon on the DS?? Cool if so, but it's a shame that it's a darn eshop game. Also it looks very similar to the original game which makes me think this is some kind of port...

EDIT: Scratch that. It's an "episodic remake" of the original. Count me out. #2

Not a huge leap. If you told me Second Son was a Ps3 game based on these shots I'd certainly believe you.

Not that realistic graphics are even close to being essential, but the notion that this is a huge leap is a bit daft - it whips up false hype. #33

Emulate. I'll never pay for cynically remonetised content. Don't believe the hype. PSX or epsxe, and pcsx2 - get those emulators and be happy. #9

Wait this guy has only played Dream Drop Distance?? Why would you do that? At the very least play 1 and 2 first. #25

We already sort of knew that from the footage. It's clearly more of a Kingdom Hearts fare. #14

Well, we might see the return of some good games, but with Nintendo not at the creative helm, I'm not sure they'll be great. I feel like only Nintendo knows how to make Nintendo games.

And isn't Hyrule Warriors kind of an example of this already? Also Fire Emblem x SMT. #56

@Conzul: Well yeah, obviously total unity is a bad thing (that's pretty much what the Borg in Star Trek were all about haha), but my real point is that there is a great imbalance in most developed countries between the individual and the community - tilted of course, in favour of the individual. That're more or less a cultural product of libertarianism and capitalism. You have to strike a balance, I agree. However, my point still stands.

I get the impression that Japanese women have internalized the idea that they're expected to do this shit shamelessly - to be utterly objectified and to be pure sex objects for men. Cultural difference is superficial here. They only think this is right because they've been told it is, likely by men, and by other women who have received similar cultural conditioning. Needless to say that doesn't make any of it right.

Objectification ignores the fullness of another... #27

Some of the environments could use touching up, as could some of the scenario direction and the musical arrangement, but damn I would play that!

I like XIII and XIII-2, don't get me wrong, and I don't think this would necessarily make them any better. I just think it'd be a fun experience.

There's always a chance that they'll take those IPs off the shelf if things start looking up financially. They were also probably concerned with restoring the reputation of the Final Fantasy series - the brand name alone which they'll probably be depending on for many years to come (and have been depending on from pretty much the beginning). We might see all that new stuff that got shelved in the future either as it was or in a new shape or form.

Sometimes it's just creative and imaginative laziness. Other times, leaving space for the player's own meaning-creation can be really tastefully done. Shadow of the Colossus does this well for instance.

But yeah, very few games have much in the way of messages, and if they do, they're usually without sophistication or subtlety, and are really ham-fisted.

I think we're living in a time that does such a good job of disguising itself as the pinna... #1

Well, yeah. Sucker Punch are owned by Sony after all. Not like they had the choice to try and make it for any other platform.

Pretty sure PCs from a couple years back could have made this game had Sucker Punch not been in bed with Sony. #42

It's not about protecting intellectual rights, it's about protecting profits.

Secondly, more and more I'm seeing this gradually warming towards drm. What was "f**k drm" yesterday has become "most users share a (at times a bit exaggerated) dislike for any use of DRM." STOP caving to it people. It's not the future, it's corporate exploitation. Apologists go home, you're going to get us all killed.

In any case, vigila... #14

Well the guitar version of the theme has to do with it being a Warriors game. The Dynasty Warriors series is pretty much just pure butt rock, and it's great. I do understand the concern though.

The whole characters thing is what bothers me. What characters will they include? I can't imagine it'll be as big a roster as a typical warriors game, since there's not really as many major characters in the Zelda series. Ganon and Zelda probably have a shoe in, but oth... #1

Ah the ruthlessness of capitalism.

EA really care about the medium don't they? No wait, they care about money and NOTHING else.

Though to be honest, I can see most game corporations doing this if they got to the position EA is at. This is what money does. #29

Okay, you can believe all that. I've had this argument too many times to care anymore. I'll leave the task to someone else. #7.2.1

I'm not condemning other cultures any more than I'd condemn elements of western culture. Most cultures have negative elements to them.

Secondly, all those historical examples you gave don't prove a thing. All they suggest is that those people weren't as socially conscious. Of course, history has happened, so they can't do any differently than they did, but it's quite easy to identify those things which they did wrong. In a lot of cases, their culture f... #6.1.3

Look, you don't understand the sense in which I mean sexism. Before you engage in an argument, you'd do well to be actuall read in what you're arguing against.

Just for future reference:

1. attitudes or behavior based on traditional stereotypes of sexual roles. (THIS DEFINITION MOSTLY)

2. discrimination or devaluation based on a person's sex, as in restricted job opportunities; especially, such discrimination directed against wom... #7.1.2
