Hellblade tackled a subject that hasn't gotten much of any attention in the gaming-sphere. Its developers even brought in those who suffers from mental illness to provide stories to help make the experience a bit more grounded. Not only is the effort not enough, but apparently it invalidates the experience of others. And people wonder why most developers play it safe.

I don't understand some of the editorializing of this article...developers shouldn't see female protagonists as a risk? When have they ever?

What about an expansion? SotC fans are aware that the original game left a lot of colossi on the cutting room floor...*hype intensifies*

Sony also has the luxury of the PlayStation Experience for surprises. There is no winning or losing here, only success and failures. All Sony needs to do to succeed is to do as it's done for the last few years: focus on games and little else.

Sindel from Mortal Kombat 3 had "weaponized hair". And she was white. This isn't a race issue - it's just a design choice.

Does anyone want a gay man's opinion on the idea of inclusivity and representation in media?

I DON'T GIVE A F***.

I don't need fictional characters to validate my sexuality. LGBT individuals are not a monolith - stop treating us like we all think alike, Polygon.

These guys are real fans of the series. I hope we'll see a single player entry in this series. LoK had some of the most memorable story-telling alongside the finest voice-acting in gaming history. I miss this series. Nosgoth is fun, I won't deny that. I log-in every now and then. It's easy to jump and it's isn't as mindless as a lot of other online-only, F2P titles. However, I long for the day when we see this series return to form.

I hope that 2 will one day receive the same treatment. Then maybe off the wave of success both remasters find, we may see a new generation VC title.

"One of the few playable female protagonists of her time."

So, Aya Brea, Jill Valentine, Claire Redfield, Regina, Hana, not to mention the scores of pivotal female characters in Final Fantasy VII-IX and how many other RPGs, are considered a few? The era Lara Croft was riddled with female leads.

We have to also consider this is coming off the heals of some very big Kickstarter campaigns: Bloodstained just raked in 5 million and Shenmue 3 which is also closing in on 5 million. I'm a HUGE Legends fan but how much money am I supposed to shell out!? :P

I'm going to make a wild guess and say that this is a it'll going to a PS4 exclusive in Japan.

Could not agree with you more. Sony has exclusive content for the remainder of 2015. What I am interested in is what each company has in store for the future. And without a doubt, Sony just offered more to look forward to.

MS should not have bumped Scalebound, Crackdown, and Quantum Break to Gamescom. Doing so weakened their E3 showings. Sony gave me a reason to be excited to a PS4 owner.

See, now I was just writing an article titled "Why you should pre-order every game at E3"...

889d ago 1 agree2 disagreeView comment

" I mean, no one wants to pre-order a game that sucks, right? You'll want to hold on to every shred of hope that the thing you were so eager to pay for isn't bad, because it makes you look bad. "

This sounds an awful lot like one of the reasons why fanboys exist; not all of us are able to afford every video game console - so those whom can only have one and not another would put their purchase on a pedestal while labeling the competition as inferior.

I have to disagree with this article. The developers are 'dicks' for releasing the game early to the fans that already paid for it? And this is supposed to be bad? How? Just because someone pre-ordered the game doesn't mean they are going to love it, let alone defend their purchase. What about publishers who do not allow gaming sites to post review scores early? Isn't that just as much of a 'dick' tactic as it doesn't allow for gamers to read a critique before they...

I don't see how this is a problem. The story is about four close male friends going on what is a road trip essentially. This is the foundation the developers wanted to build on. In the past we've had a mixed male & female cast, casts with different species, an all-female cast, games where players can create their own character, so how would an all-male cast be a problem? If anything, the FF series is now diversifying it's portfolio by doing something it hasn't done before...
