Yeah they're finally making a remake of FFVII.
And a new Shenmue, though that's a Kickstart project.
I really was hoping Nintendo was pulling a fast one and reveal some stuff anyway but nope. It was a pretty lacklustre digital event, but as mentioned, I was't overly impressed with Sony or Microsoft either.
That said, at least we got a release date for Xenoblade Chronicles X which I was really looking forward to. However, as time has gone by and more and more of the soundtrack has become available I realize that there are portions of the game I"m going to have to play with the music off.
Speaking as a musician, I don't find that I fully sync with the game's composer and some of his stuff does not resonate with me at all and in watching some of the gameplay vids, find that the music actually detracts from my enjoyment.
Yeah, I'm fussy that way.
Back when FF II released on the SNES here NA, about half my decision to buy was the soundtrack, so, game music plays an important part of my enjoyment of a game.

I honestly wasn't paying attention to anything before E3, so I didn't know they said that it wouldn't there before hand. So I guess I can't hold that against them. Either way I thought out of all 3 companies, they were the weakest. I think Sony had the strongest because of how fast they we showing off games, people kept mentioning a Crash Bandicoot game rumor. I would have been so pumped for a new one. Call of Duty was their worst bit. Microsoft actually had some interesting games (indie mostly) and completely ignored kinect and other media nonsense.
Square Enix wasn't that good either outside of the KH3 footage, which looks beautiful. And they're making another Nier game, which floored me. Though I did miss the new Deus Ex footage, which I need to watch.
The simple slave, in sweat-soaked sheets, aims his shackles, and cuts off his hands. The simple slave, in smoggy pantheon, aims for release, and cuts off his head.
Did I hear correctly that there's a new paper mario type game with mario and Luigi?
Also, not sure how I feel about the FFVII remake as it's one of my favourite games of all time.
It seems a bit unnecessary to me, but I guess it can't hurt, and I will probably enjoy a slightly different adventure in that world/story.
I have given up any faith that I had for the Resident Evil series.
I dunno... they've been winning me back with Revelations 2 and the remaster of REmake...
I'm not really a big fan of RE0, but hopefully the remaster of that will help shape the future of the next main series title.
I've been playing the 3DS version of Smash for over a week now. All I see are Ryu, Lucas, Roy, Fox, and Captain Falcon. I'm still losing way more than I'm winning.
Characters I hate fighting: Sonic, Sheik, and Ness.
I'm a Destiny, Minecraft, GTAV player here I have other games mostly multiplayer but I don't have other people to play with a great deal of time
All on PS4
and is anyone as excited as I am about Battlefront?
Hi new guy! Sadly, don't share your affinity in games(other than Minecraft of course, but i'm late to that bandwagon), but welcome all the same.
I don't share your fear of Ness, and don't see too many Sheik players on the Wii U - yeah, she's fast and she's a combo queen, but unlike Sonic, she needs to set up before she can even get started.
I'm also very disappointed in the lackluster Nintendo e3 presentation. It just felt like Star Fox Zero... and then a bunch of half-steps(Animal Crossing... in the form of a party game? Metroid... as a co-op shooter and not a continuation of the fantastic Metroidvanias or the fan-wanting Prime series? A new Zelda... but not the one we wanted[not that I care, I'm not a Zelda fan - or frankly, a AC fan]?).
If i'm really being fair, Microsoft fucking hit it out of the park. Who knew eh? Not only did they give thier core what they wanted, but they managed to surprise people too(even though one of those surprises - backwards compatibility - is really a false flag). Neither Nintendo or Sony can say they did that, and they shouldn't because they didn't. Everything about Nintendo's digital event was either hinted at or flat out known since the last e3 with little else added... which is the sad part. Ah well... there is always next year.

"There’s death on the horizon,

Even though I wasn't impressed with Nintendo'd E3 digital thing, I watched ubisofts and EA's and they were both pretty abysmal.
I was overall pretty impressed with e3 this year more than others, actual surprises and games I am looking forward to. Nice amount of indies that I want to.
I am excited for Battlefront but EA dropped the ball on the presence of that game. Same with Mirror's Edge Catalyst, pretty much the most interesting game EA has had in a long time but a trailer was shown and they focused a half hour on sports games that are the same thing every year.
I can't believe I have been playing Fallout Shelter as much as I have. I usually hate mobile games.
I subscribed to him before he outed himself
‹(´ω`)› Dissolve your inner chicken. Voices that say "ah, yes".
Hooked my 360 back up and have been playing Dark Souls.
Bought the Handsome Collection to play with a few buddies at work.
And for my Birthday I got Batman AN. Enjoying it so far.
I am doing pretty decently. I am pretty familiar with most of the game it is just that I never got around to finishing it.
A great game though. The atmosphere, the enemies and bosses are really well designed. As well as the level design, which is probably the best level designed game in a long time in my opinion.
When I finally finish it I will pick up DS2 Scholar of the First Sin.
Did you ever play DS2? It's a great game but I think it's shortcomings are that it just lacks all those things you just listed as the highlights of the first one :\ I did recently invest about a good month or so into it though.
Did I hear Dark Souls talk?
I got arkham knight but I liked arkham City more. The batman is arkham knight is actually pretty mean and over the top butch
Well there's playing in Gotham which is nice but it's not completely different to arkham City in that regard. Plus there's some new gadgets. As a game it's ok but unlike the previous games it was written by people in the gaming industry not the comic book industry and it shows.
Oh well. Still hoping for a good justice league game one day
sorry double post

Let me tell you that I am pretty pissed that when I went into GameStop the guys there spoiled the secret ending to the game for me. Why the hell would you be talking about an ending to a new game when people are in the store? Idiots.
After a year of not playing Alpha Sapphire I decide to play it. I finish going through the cave at Ever Grande City, defeat my rival, and then exit out of the game. Without saving. I just sat there looking at my screen. I wonder when I'll get the urge to play the game again.
Anyone on PSN want to add me? Drop me a PM with your username if you like (:

Hello fellow gamers, PrahaGold is here to inject another threat with infinite wisdom and nuisance.
I usually stick to the classics in terms of games: Skyrim, Mario (Kart), The Sims what have you.
Although I have forbidden myself to play the Sims; it's just too addictive. Also I still have my Animal Crossing Wild World town going and every now and then I love to indulge in nostalgia and play a Yu-Gi-Oh game...
EDIT: I was considering to play Devil may Cry 5 after seeing... uhm... that intro... But I suppose if that's the only exciting part about it, I'll stick to Youtube videos of the cutscenes.

^Which Yu-Gi-Oh game? I put in so many hours into Duelist Of The Roses and I don't think I'm anywhere near having all the cards. It was a fun game. I just wish the story mode was a bit longer or there were post game challenges.
Currently I'm playing some of the DS games. World Championship 2008, Spirit Caller and Over the Nexus. Also considered to get the English patched version of the ARC Special for the PSP, but ever since Nexus, I am convinced that this franchise was flushed down the loo. First they came up with those Synchro things, then it was 'Speed Duels' (dueling while riding a motorcycle. I mean honestly?) and then they came with those ridiculous XYZ monsters. Yu-Gi-Oh, like Beyblade, Digimon etc. was a fad and it has passed and Konami should accept that and not try to revive the game with such nonsense.
Introducing synchro monsters was the beginning of the end IMO. I've seen duels where you know which person will win after the first turn.
Absolutely. Some of the new archetypes that are specifically designed for Synchros (most notably the Blackwings) are utterly overpowered. I miss the old days when there were just the classic archetypes. I have always been a person who builds his deck around a specific archetype (Vampires and Harpies were my personal favourites and no, I have never read Twilight, nor do I have the desire to become a woman), but I think it's a shame that they couldn't come up with better strategies for said archetypes earlier on. The Vampires apparently have been expanded dramatically, just like the Harpies. Pity that they couldn't have done this sooner.
Yes. I had a mixed deck back in the day but when I discovered an online dueling site I was excited to be able to build the deck I wanted without having to worry about the cost of cards. I stuck to a Harpie deck too along with a Warrior type deck and a Dark Magician deck. It was fun using those decks but eventually people began to realized how insanely overpowered synchros were and began using them. The blackwing especially got a lot of play.
Same here. In the original trading card game it was quite difficult to play a powerful Harpie deck, as essential cards such as Cyber Shield and Pet Dragon were extremely rare and others like Rose Whip didn't even exist. When they finally came with that one structure deck that contained very useful cards like Hysteric Party, Hunting Grounds and Icarus attack, the fad of Yu-Gi-Oh had sadly already blown over for the most part.
Still, the normal game is quite enjoyable and I like to create different types of decks and test them out against a variety of opponents. Just for the heck of it. And just for the sake of bittersweet nostalgia I like to rewatch the old anime sometimes.
For anyone who actually still owns a Nintendo DS, I can really recommend 'The World Ends With You'. I'm not a particular fan of anime, manga or anything like that, but this game actually works somehow. I think the review on 1UP summarises this perfectly: "By all rights, The World Ends With You should be an annoying disaster, a bundle of tired gimmicks and trite clichés. Yet somehow all the things that should be unbearable fall into place and create a game that's far more unique, interesting, and addictive than it has any right to be."
I sorta liked the monster games. Don't get me wrong, ultimately I'm a nerdy RPG create-your-character guy, but I appreciated Digimon in that it was one at a time and that monster evolved based on your treatment of it/success with it. I also adored Monster Rancher with its whole monster-from-CD creation thing.
But I'm a sucker for a role-playing game. The Final Fantasy series is probably one of my favorites (and I'm over the moon about a remake of FFVII, my favorite), Legend of Zelda is my jam, and any swords-and-horses-and-magic game that allows you to choose a race, gender, etc and create a character is for me.
