Man, on one hand im hyped as fuck. New GalCiv! Then I remember how terrible fallen enchantress is even after the expansions and all the patches and I start to lose hope. Here's hoping the guy that did fall from heaven is a big part of the design process rather then the guy from civ5.

Blizzard taking butthurt to the next level, this is all because they are mad valve made dota 2. Which is kind of odd when you consider for example id didn't throw a fit about tfc. But then, Warcraft 3 was easily pirated to play dota online so blizzard made nothing off it while everyone who wanted to play team fortress or counter strike had to buy quake/hl.

News Comments > SteamOS Announced

If gaben seriously thinks any but the most hardcore will move to linux hes on some serious shit. If this is just something for hardcore pc gamers to have a sort of separate gaming pc in their living room, I see it doing as well as all the other attempts to control the living room from tech companies.

I'm more interested in the idea I see on non gaming sites that thinks valve sees the pc is dying which will eventually lead to a decline in pc gaming as more and more just buy tablets. If this turns out to be essentially a competitor to the mainstream consoles with set specs that developers can create games in mind for we might have something interesting. If this steambox can run ps4 and xbone pc ports for 500 or less I might even buy the thing

I predict Persona 5 will be a grindy animu waifu simulator. Probably taking place in a high school.

Sounds good to me.

Does this mean we will finally get a new persona? Fucking travesty that the series skipped the entire current console gen.

Also the third version of the persona fighting game makes sense(when previous licensed fighters from the company never got sequels) since now they don't even have to pay a fee for the licence!

O god hope sega doesn't make the next persona a shitty handheld game like they did the valkyrie profile series. So conflicted by this news.

From what I understand the game did pretty poorly and the original publisher shut the servers down. Now they are re releasing it with a new one.

He might be bitter that square implied tomb raider didn't sell well. All because it didn't meet their insane expectations of 10 million copies sold or whatever so that the western arm of the company could continue to fund the shitty games coming out of japan.

Tried beta for the new version. Actually pretty good. If it wasn't for the character models you could 100% pass it as a completely new game. Hell, you can even click things! Dont think FF11 ever got that right

News Comments > Square Enix's "Extraordinary" Losses
22. Re: Square Enix's May 13, 2013, 17:45 Kobalt
 
I give square as much shit as the next guy, but I have to respect them for not doing a ff7 remake. The only way to do it justice is to pretty put as much effort as a whole new big budget game(or make it a vita game and make everyone outside of japan rage and give sony a uncontrollable erection). Instead of getting a new game they would have to spend years remaking a old one. Is that what people really want?

Maybe I'm the crazy one that would rather play a new game rather then a sequel/game I played years ago. Never got the same people that complain about sequels all day will beg for remakes of old games.

They want $1.5m for a sequel to a Gamecube game released more than 10 years ago in a niche genre (survival horror) for a series of which only one was ever made? That seems crazy.

The original got good reviews, but is this something everyone is pining for and has tons of nostalgia about?

Is survival horror really niche when resident evil and dead space is so popular? Certainly less obscure then half the stuff I see kickstarters for.

Downward trend? The only game that company has ever made that wasn't mediocre to the extreme was borderlands.

I really wish people would just ignore kotaku. There's no journalism involved, just fake controversy every day to farm views.

Clearly you never played Quake, UT, CS, et al.

Clearly your mind cannot process different opinions and can only jump to ridiculous conclusions.

So are the new consoles called future generation? Will the 360 and ps3 still be called next gen years from now? And what will the ps5 be called?

My mind can't process this.

PS Why did they wait so long to do something with this property? They regularly sold 3 million copies a piece, isn't that a bonafide hit? What is wrong with you capcom and what did you do to Megaman?

As far as I know the last one was a mediocre rehash and sold about as well. None of them came close to the popularity of the first one, though the 3rd one did bring it back from being a completely dead franchise. God of war pretty much took the crown for this genre that devil may cry created(I admit to getting a little mad that people call all these games god of war clones now, including dmc games).

Capcom is in the same position it finds itself every 5 years or so. Comes out with a excellent new game, milks it so much everyone hates it. When people start to question how long capcom can last with worse and worse sales every year they wake up and kick ass again.

Sorry people, MMOs cannot succeed on the subscription model anymore. Those days are over, just like metered internet.

I wonder if anything ever has not been declared dead on the internet.

For example, in fantasy settings racism or xenophobia is an often explored subject. I would say DA2, had it not been a total clusterfuck, would have fallen into this Category. Skyrim goes into this as well. Obviously we'd be foolish to leave out the Witcher 2. I think the first bioshock should also be on this list, though I would certainly put any themes it has into the 'clumsy' category.

Racism is probably one of the worst things done in video games. Sure you might have the odd fantasy game have something about racism is bad it is 100% nullified by the fact that..in these game there are races that are bad stereotypes. Blood thirsty savages that can never be smart as the hero. A cowardly gold hoarding race. Sound familiar to anyone? They are in most fantasy games. Perfectly ok in the video game world.

They made a generic clone without multiple starting areas

Wait what, there was multiple starting areas. Did you even play the game?
