I don't quite understand why it needs to be open world though. Making it open world enables them to do a lot more stuff, but to be honest the gameplay doesn't sound any different to the previous games. It's the same gameplay, but in an open world rather than in various open stages. They don't really seem to taking full advantage of the open world setting. In a way, what it seems like is that instead of having separate stages, they just merged them all into one giant stage. Oth...

I feel like the reason they did this was more out of a fear that male trolls would fake their gender and ruin the whole thing. It's a shame that trans folks have to go through this because of trolls. If there weren't trolls, it would be safe to assume that these people were the genders they said they were. It's sort of like how, if it weren't for people historically making deliberately fake rape accusations, rape victims wouldn't be questioned and interrogated to ensure th...

Maybe they did that to make you THINK that they're too dumb to do manipulative things.

The whole point of the NES Classic was to cancel it and make Nintendo look dumb and clueless so that it could get away with constraining supplies of the Switch to create the appearance of huge demand, i.e. people would think they were too clueless to do something so devilish.

The NES Classic was never meant to be a product in its own right, it was always totally par...

lol here we go. I don't own a Ps4 so I haven't been able to play this yet, but I'm kind of glad because it means I can hold onto my money until the inevitable ultimate version of the game.

Sorry but read the article. The guys he played with acted like a-holes. Don't let your politics blind you to that fact.

He joined a game and informed to everyone that he'd had dental surgery because of a genetic disease, and that it had messed up his speech. He was apologizing in advance just in case they thought he was some troll. The first thing those people said was "annoying", and, "you're muted already". That's just disrespectful, pl...

Well it makes sense. The world knows very little about what the Remake is going to be like. Hard to be super hyped about something you know next to nothing about. Trails of Cold Steel III however is part of an established series. People loved the first two games, and the third is going to be more of the same greatness, so it's hard not to be excited.

I feel that once we know more about the remake it's likely we'll all be a lot more excited than we are right now....

Well actually I think a lot of the FF characters that make an appearance aren't actually from FF worlds. Tidus, Wakka, and Selphie are from Destiny Islands, and Squall, Yuffie, and some of the others are from Radiant Garden. In other words, the Kingdom Hearts versions of these characters have totally different histories.

Pretty much all the non-Disney worlds in the game are supposed to be Final Fantasy-esque. Hollow Bastion and The World That Never Was are good examples.

And yeah, Kingdom Hearts has always had a heavier, more serious side to it.

Well most people aren't like you mate, I guarantee that. I suspect you have some other underlying problems.

Yes, but it's extremely important to remember that addictions like video game addiction are behavioral addictions, not chemical addictions. Chemical addictions are obviously much more severe and much harder to reverse.

There are only like a dozen PS4 games out of the 100 exclusive / 390 console exclusive games that I'm actually interested in, several of which are pretty much destined for Steam some day, because the developers / publishers behind them already have games on Steam.

In a lot of cases, vocal fan demand like mine isn't to blame for formerly-exclusive games coming to Steam, it's just the business decisions of the publishers who recognize that Steam is huge right now....

Daaammiiiitt. Please bring Persona 5 to Steam Atlus. I'm a longtime SMT / Persona fan who has moved to PC, and I'm sure there are many more like me.

There's no way it was the worst game in the Ps2 era. I doubt you actually believe it was though.

I played the whole VII series last year, and DoC is a solid game. The music and the story are both great, and the gameplay is fun, even if it's pretty simple. It's not groundbreaking or anything, but it's fun, and it was fun to get to return to the world of VII. I liked how they expanded on it.

It could so easily be a Souls / Nioh type game. I'd prefer something more like the originals though.

Who would even criticize the Nintendo 64 like that though? It was such a great console and with great games. Criticizing the N64 just seems like a weird thing to do. It's just not an obvious thing to have a joke at the expense of. Like, who takes the p!ss out of the N64? It's a pretty beloved console. If the item was called "Atari Jaguar" or "N-Gage" it'd make more sense.

I'm not offended or anything, it just seems like a weird joke to ma...

I haven't played TLG yet because I don't own a Ps4, but to me that game almost seems like a spiritual successor to Ico (big castle, puzzles, an AI partner). I guess it has a pinch of SotC in there, but for the most part it seems like it's more like Ico than SotC. Anyway, perhaps Ueda's next game could be a spiritual successor to SotC, which would definitely be amazing.

Could be good. I'm not a fan of any of her comedic roles at all, but she might be good in something dramatic. Having said that, it's kind of annoying when games use recognizable people, whether it's their voice, their likeness, or both. It hurts immersion. Seems like they could save a lot of money by not hiring super overpaid actors too.

So long as they have a firm grip on reality, and so long as they don't let playing games dominate their lives, then there's no real issue.

No excuse to not put this on Steam. It's being made free, and it's probably easy to port.

Looking crisp. Seems odd that they have a separate command for Magic and Materia though. Maybe abilities under Materia are command materia (yellow) abilities like Steal and Deathblow etc. If that's the case, they should change "Materia" to "Command", and "Command" above the menu to, I don't know, "Battle" or something. I can imagine "Summon" appearing as an option if a summon materia is equipped.

Also, I wonder how t...
