    Everyone wants a VII remake in HD which quite honestly I'd pass on, didn't really enjoy the game the first time around (let the flames of war begin now).
     
    I'm kinda mixed with Square-Enix right now. I like FFXIV: ARR but knowing the fucked the pooch so bad on it the first time around has me worrying quite a bit about FFXV. Not only was the game pushed back by 3 or so years they retooled it for next gen and it worries me that it just won't deliver. Not to mention the debacle with the XIII games. I have yet to play XIII (own it, just haven't gotten around to playing it) but what I saw of it while my roommate played it made me feel that they're really dumbing the series down (took no thought what-so-ever to actually play) but the story was quite awesome (imo, plus the soundtrack was pure bliss). I think Square-Enix just needs to take a break from RPGs for awhile, they're really starting to get bland. Hint guys: Blitzball (come on random Square-Enix lurkers, look at our site to get this idea). I swear you'll make billions just on it alone. Hell Sledge I'd probably lock myself in my room and play it for days straight if they made one
     
    I'd take an HD remake of COD4 with servers. God I miss that game so much, it was so much fun before the modders and hackers took it over. You have to give it to Kojima, he likes to think outside of the box and push the envelope as much as he can. One of the main reasons I've always thought he's one of the best game designers is the business right now (if not the best). Sadly I wish he'd give us a new Z.O.E. title, I so want another one. Damn you ZOE HD remake and not selling well, now Kojima won't give Strider another ZOE game

    Hmmm... Can I have a Call of Duty 4-2: Modern Warfare? Actually, don't mess with the gameplay, just give me an HD remix with servers.
     
    Strider nailed it. Bungie and Respawn are throwing out a new product. Ubisoft is probably producing the most unique titles in The Division and Watch Dogs... Even Drive Club looks highly innovative for the racing genre.
     
    When it comes to Sequels at least MGSV is bringing something radically different to the MGS universe in the form of sandbox gameplay. inFAMOUS: Second Son is pushing the limits of the sandbox with insane new powers and abilities you can swap between.
     
    I never was a fan of turn based RPGs, so I don't have anything invested in Square... I'd be hard pressed to tell you a game I've played made by them... but it seems they've taken the COD route of lets just cookie cutter some games together with the FF or KH labels while our die hard fans wait and hope for some real sequels that we might make 3 console generations from now...
     
    Even more funny how they will make a X-2 or a -2 of anything except VII which is what everyone wanted in the first place.

    So they're wanting to take the same route with XIII if the demand is high enough? Why does Square-Enix insist on shooting themselves in the foot with sequels? Starting to really think they have no idea what to do anymore. Sad thing is though sequels are what is sustaining the game market at the moment since everyone is to afraid to start a completely new IP (the exception here being Bungie and a few other developers).
     
    Sadly I don't remember X-2 being any good (I know I didn't beat it but from what I remember it was a real let down, then again so was X after that one certain point in the story). Give the fans what they really want, a game completely devoted to Blitzball. I'd buy that game in a hurry if it was ever produced.

    Oh hell yeah! I can replay my childhood and they have old school Missile Command for the Atari 2600. I guess I can say goodbye to all my free time. *runs off to play Missile Command before getting ready for work*

    I'm going to assume similar, there will always be differences but now that console hardware is starting to get closer and closer to high end computer specs it'll be hard to tell. I can't go into much due to the NDR from the closed beta but graphics wise the current version of the beta looks exactly like Skyrim from what I could tell with a 3 year old laptop and a non-functional graphics card (using my on-board as my Radeon was disabled due to blue screen errors, which is now fixed (the on board runs at about a quarter of the specs of my Radeon)). Mind you this would be stock Skyrim, not modded Skyrim with all those fancy HD texture packs. Of course running it at as low as I had too it could look much better, won't know until I get another invite for the next beta weekend (if I do).

    Looks relatively interesting and even if it does suck I'll get to stare at Mila Kunis so I really can't lose.

    Wow that's a lot later then I expected. Hmmm, now do I still go through and buy my PS4 when I originally planned to (sometime in March) or do I wait till right before Destiny comes out? I'll definitely have to think that through (though I most likely will buy it earlier, only because I want Watchdogs).

    Today Bungie posted an "Everything You Need to Know about the Beta". There is also a possibility that Beta progress could transfer over to the retail product... Bungie wouldn't say that it definitely will not, but won't commit on that it will. For more read the VG247 article below:

    Caught my interest, in fact I downloaded it today. Will most likely watch it tonight or tomorrow night. I agree with DX though, Funimation makes the worst trailers I've seen out of any company. On the MAL page for the movie its stated there is a year between both children, Yuki being born in the winter and Ame being born a year later during the spring.

    I just finished getting caught up on the show last night and I have to say I love this show. Has so much potential, I just hope Fox doesn't pull a Firefly here and cancel it because this show is awesome.
     
    Have to say I was rather surprised by how low tech some of the weapons are. You'd think with synthetics around they'd be sporting much more powerful weapons then just your average, everyday guns. The tech they use though is pretty amazing. Like the spray mask that screws with cameras, was a rather nice touch. The one thing that sells me on this show though is the interactions between Dorian and John. On one hand you have a synthetic that was made to act and emulate like a human that is also trying to learn what it is to be human and you have a damaged cop who's basically relearning who he is (the first episode basically answers why he's relearning). Just my take on the premise of the show. Their banter is priceless (Dorian cracks me up, especially with the whole online dating profile thing. Damn near lost it when he did that).
     
    Out of all the synthetics the only ones that appear and act human are Dorian (DRN) and those sexbots from episode 2. The MX series AI is just to robotic to emulate a human, then again they were made to be just like that (no emotion, just logic based programming (acting a lot like Spock)). AI like Dorian's is far off but honestly it'd be amazing and creepy at the same time to meet something so human but know it's actually a synthetic emulating human behavior. If that happens we might just be living in a GitS universe (which would be totally awesome).

    Season 2 isn't too bad but it was nowhere near as good as Season 1. Plus to really understand what's happening in Season 2 you need to watch The Black Contractor, the 4 ep OVA that spans the time between the two series. It explains why certain things are happening in Season 2. Wish it would of aired before Season 2, would of helped me understand everything a little better.

    I've gotten roughly 12 kills with the damn gun and only when an enemy is almost right on top of me, only seems to be effective at close to medium range. Only time I take out engineer now is if I die while defending a flag and the enemy brings in a tank so I respawn and rain unholy hell on them with the RPG.
     
    I've gotten one Airburst kill since watching that video. Was camping the roof on Flag C (or should i say defending) and watching the carnage at Flag B when a sniper decided to take pop shots at me from the rubble so I decided to try it out. He hid behind a ruined wall so I locked onto the wall and did as the video said and rained hell down on him (only to be killed by a bastard who snuck up on me. Kinda wish it took less the three shots to kill somebody though. 10 shots with it isn't all that much.

    Any campaign from any shooter is better then BF3's campaign was, I was sorely disappointed with the entirety of it (and I actually beat the damn game). If felt like a rehash of COD4's story, just done worse. That sucks to hear they toned down the humor for BC2, that was one of the major selling points for the first one (for me anyways). Going through a major firefight and hearing your computer buddies making inappropriate jokes always cracked me up. Plus the ending always makes me laugh (I'm honestly surprised they're not in a military prison at the beginning of BC2 after what they pulled).

    It scares me to think if Jackson plans on making a Silmarillion movie, that thing would be split into at least 5 movies all 4-5 hours long (you want a hard read go read The Silmarillion, that thing is hard to get through).
     
    Yea, Jackson left out some of the best parts of the LotR books (like Tom Bombadil, by far the most awesome character ever created). Give them a read when you get a chance but I warn you the first part of the book is freaking boring. I don't know how many times I fell asleep in the middle of reading it (the only good part was Tom).
     
    I wouldn't be surprised by an extended edition being longer but I doubt it'll be 4 hours long. The extended editions of the LotR movies only added about 30-45 minutes a piece (not to mention all the extra crap (the LotR Blu-ray set has 15 discs! I still haven't attempted to go through them yet (yea I bought them, hated the movies but they were still entertaining)).

    Did they, in any way, link it to Chronicles seeing as how this is supposed to be after it? Just wondering because that was the one thing I was worried about, didn't want to see it if it had no tie-ins with the movies (considering it's weird he's not, you know, leading the Necromongers).

    The whole problem with black though is its an over used color scheme. Even worse when it replaces the original color schemes that would've stood out more.
     
    We can't have a Blue, Gray, &/or  Yellow outfit Batman.... Nope we can only get black outfit Batman.
    We couldn't (originally) have the X-Men in Blue & Yellow or any of their original color schemed outfits. Just a bunch of Black Leather Suits.
    And forbid that no one in The Matrix not remind us of The Trench Coat Mafia.
     
    So having Robocop follow along with this doesn't sit well with me at all. Even if someone were to label this as practical the whole point of any of these (Super) Heroes isn't to really be practical in the first place.
     
    If they were practical
    Superman would wear all black as black absorbs heat from sunlight more easily.
    Spider-Man fighting at night would have an all black outfit with a hard to see Spider Logo if there was a Spider Logo at all.
    Tony Stark would have remotely controlled his new Iron-Man suits in every situations.
    Thor would have never been cast out of Asgard because this time around he was too practical to get into trouble.
    Any Super Hero (or Villain) wearing the colors of their country as their color scheme would be replaced by camouflage.
    Kick Ass, Big Daddy, & Hit Girl would have easily been replace by SWAT Teams.
     
    Even being "Practical" by using Military Forces in movies has caused movies to probably be less exciting then they could have been.
    Godzilla 1998 (even though my favorite looking Godzilla) suffered from the use of Military Forces. They should've gone with a Mecha Godzilla 1998. That could have been a much better movie.
    Cloverfield suffered from similar problems but with the added annoyance of a bunch of pricks from a party.
    Michael Bay's Transformers.... Yeesh.... The Military Forces Had / Has the ability to destroy Decepticons without the need for Autobots to be there.
     
    Maybe that's why we can't get a Gundam movie on the big screen. Someone is going to want it to be practical. RX-78-2 (If that's the Gundam they use) wouldn't be able to have its color scheme or its roll out color scheme. It would have to have either a camouflage color on earth or be black since that's basically the camouflage color of space. Then they would probably change it to a Mobile Armor since a Mobile Suit isn't as practical. By the time it was done making practical changes it would be like the Battleship movie.
     
    No wonder I had the urge to defend Pacific Rim. Pacific Rim being impractical is what made it fun.
     
    So once this Practical Robocop comes out I honestly & hopefully expect it to bomb. Because practicality is what ruins these (super hero like) movies.

    Yeah really... and after reading an article about it. I have to lean towards the idea that this game was build for consoles... the watered down leveling system and as you mentioned the skill trees seem to meld better for controllers. The additional features I saw on the Playstation version solidify this train of thought for me.

    I agree there sadly but it's Blizzard trying to turn Diablo into an MMO instead of leaving it true to its Action RPG roots. 99 levels and leaving it an offline game would of made this game so much better. Well that and if it kept the D2 skill trees (then again this is what happens when you let the D2 development team walk out the door to start their own studio).

    Honestly MS grow a pair and stand your ground. Quit pulling shit out just to make people happy, you'll eventually just piss us off for being whiny little pussies. (yes I'm being serious here, I respected them for sticking to their guns because people need to realize (yes even us) that this will eventually happen whether we like it or not).
     
    Sigh, MS keeps shooting itself in the foot. I'm getting pissed off more now that they're taking this shit out then I was when they announced that it was required.
