RANDOM VIDEO GAME NEWS

I enjoyed Massive Chalice.  Yes, it was repetitive, but the combat was not too bad and the lineage lines were interesting.  I would say it was worth a bargain bin pickup, maybe $10 or so.  It was really more of a few good concepts with unfulfilled promise.  The hallmark of Doublefine games, really.

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

30 minutes of Far Cry: Primal gameplay by Angry Joe (who I think is annoying but ... Well, he plays the game, so...)

It looks like a quite sweet, idealized version of ... Whatever period is it supposed to take place in anyway. Melee system looks a bit primitive so I hope they'll work a bit on that, otherwise the game'll become very samey very fast.

Extremely disappointed from the FFVII Trailer... They essentially turned it into Hack and Slash...

Are you sure? Looked to me like you still had Attack/Magic/Summon/Item in the lower left, they just made the animations all fancy. I'd be really sad if I couldn't spend hours grinding Master Tonberrys while half-asleep by running in circles and spamming the x button...though I'm not sure I'll even buy the remake, despite spending far too many hours playing FF VII when I was younger.

 

The bigger complaint is that Barret is too skinny and they haven't made Yuffie the main character. :p

I really wish they'd do something like what Shadow of Mordor does with at least part of its main quest. That is not copying the Nemesis System exactly but the idea of giving you room to complete a larger goal in your own way with your own unique path and result.

 

But likely it will be typical Ubisoft busywork schlock.

I think, the menu is just a placeholder for early build in a game, same was for FFXV when it was still called FFvsXIII. The video looked to me like a crossbreed of Crysis Core, Lightning Returns... I liked Crisis Core, because it was on PSP, but I am still regretting to give money to SE for Lightning Returns...

Well IMO, currently the best what can SE offer is Bravely Default, and Bravely Second. With these games, they stayed in line with their JRPG roots, and the sales were much bigger than Lightning Returns and probably even bigger than Final Fantasy XIII-2. I thought, they learned their lessons...

 

Well, I still think FFVIIR will sell like hotcakes, but the whining and butthurt two days after will break the internet...

 

For me, well I still think I will buy it, but currently, from what I have seen so far, I have decided to wait for big price cut.

I haven't watched the Angry Joe Far Cry Primal video yet, because every time I mulled watching a 30 minute video I decided to just play Xenoblade Chronicles X for 30 minutes instead.  I'll probably watch it in chunks at work today.  :p Anyway, I'm curious as to how they'll fit in towers in a prehistoric setting.  I mean, it's a Ubi game, so surely it will have towers.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!
