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. ...

428 and Kamaitachi no Yoru for sure. They never got English releases and I really want to play them.

The best art is made when there are no deadlines and no budget constraints. Those kinds of pressures make for rushed games, stories with loads of plotholes, and so on. Even if you never release it, make the most of the creative process.

EDIT: Woops, my bad, didn't realize you were quoting the guy.

ONE guy made this? That is absolutely crazy... Kind of makes you wonder why SE have so many people working on XV.

I'm just gonna explore, take photos, catalog things, talk to aliens, and of course mine stuff so I can upgrade my stuff. I'm indifferent about the fighting / destroying side of things.

This is seriously such BS. Has this ever happened in a JRPG? Get money elsewhere and put fake brands in the game. What the heck are they thinking? Have they no integrity? I don't want a bunch of shots during scenes that emphasize some logo. Cheapens the experience and breaks immersion completely.

Ravus is one evil looking mf. Have they gotten rid of his Assassin's Creed hood though?

Digimon talk, Pokémon just say their names incessantly. +1 to Digimon.
Digimon names all end with mon, Pokémon names do not and are more interesting as a result. +1 to Pokémon.
The Digimon anime is far superior to the Pokémon anime. +1 to Digimon.
The Digimon games are hit and miss, while the Pokémon games are pretty consistently good. +1 to Pokémon.
In recent years, Pokémon has been ripping off Digimon a bit. +1 to Digimo...

I know what the writer means. Molyneux likes to go on about how his forthcoming games will be completely revolutionary experiences we've never had before (Godus, What's Inside the Cube? and it's "life-changing" prize). However, I think Kojima is much, much more of a craftsman than Molyneux. If Kojima says his game is going to be something pretty new, I'm inclined to believe him. Kojima has a much deeper understanding of games as a craft and an art than Molyneux does....

Her name really should have been Cidney in the English version, but then again, it'd be a little bit weird if Cid, her father, called her that. I know people often name their children after themselves, but let's be honest, it's a pretty weird thing to do.

Well if she works in a hot place, less clothes is understandable and justifiable (Duscae kind of looks alpine though...). However, all the pervy fan-service camera angles are just targeting wallets and are unnecessary - if anything they just make me want to buy the game less because they're so pander-y and manipulative. I also seriously doubt that omitting them would put even the slightest dint in the artistic vision, because the function of that camera work isn't to further the story...

Is he the hooded Assassin's Creed looking guy from the older trailers then? Cool if so. I'd also say he'll be the main villain.

The figures in the sky are what save this cover. It would have been pretty uninteresting otherwise, not to mention it would have conveyed very little about the game and made it appear pretty generic.

So what are those giant things? Are they Archaeans? I kind of hope they aren't because Tabata said there's not that many in the game, and I'd rather not have the rest of them spoiled.

Well the whole Early Access thing is rarely a problem - most games get finished. The real problem is the groups that certain Greenlight submissions affiliate themselves with, which supply steam keys to people who vote the game up and say good things about the game. These are games that people wouldn't vote for ordinarily.

Also, "let the buyer beware" is always too laissez-faire. You can't pin all responsibility on consumers when people go out of their way ...
