Haha, people should be happy to know what some current government workers get up to as well. What that Ex-Us State did was descipable, but hardly an isolated one as these really take the cake:

- Senior SEC employees spent up to 8 hours a day surfing porn sites instead of cracking down on financial crimes

- Agents for the Drug Enforcement Agency had dozens of sex parties with prostitutes hired by the drug cartels they were supposed to stop (they also received money, gifts and weapons from drug cartel members)

- The Treasury department allowed banks to “cook their books”

- NSA spies pass around homemade sexual videos and pictures they’ve collected from spying on the American people

I stand by the opinion that the greatest SW TV series would be a live-action one following the Rogue and Wraith squadron books following after ROTJ. And if not live-action, something decently animated (and not the odd plastic, animation-look for those new SW cartoons). Intense Dogfights, high-stakes, political intrigue, watching how a falling Empire becomes increasingly desperate, awesome characters and story.

The plan was to have 32 of these. Instead we're getting 3.

It seems like we're unilaterally disarming these days. For example, the plan was to buy 750 F-22s to replace 1000 F-15s. Instead we only bought 187. B-2 was supposed to be 165 bombers, but we only got 20. Original plan was to buy 2800 F-35s. Currently that's been reduced to 2400, but we'll be lucky to see 1000 if current trends hold.

I think it more of a matter of the U.S. being broke as f*** and the inept leaders think their super toys will just "win," but they keep giving the military more budget with IOUs and Monopoly money to build some Toys, or they keep allotting MORE billions to arm some hooligan extremists across the Globe. That's what happens with an over-sized and excessive military budget for several decades (which also causes the civilian economy to retract/go to into recession over time)

There was also a mock battle between a french Submarine and a US carrier group back in March? One lone submarine sunk the carrier and most of its escorting vessels. I don't know if it was this one, or another mock battle, but I read about a US Admiral becoming furious during one and ordered the battle to restart but the "enemy" has to operate by more and more restrictions. Hilarious.

The FF6 of old was also designed for CRT displays with the graphics crafted for that. I still have a CRT to play some old games meant for CRT. Not sure why they didn't just use the one that's on the Wii virtual console though.

Are they close to completion of Underworld though? For those that have it (alpha/beta), what's the progress on that, looking good or no?

2017/18 at best. They need the time for as ambitious sounding as it is from what's known about it so far. 2016 should be devoted to W3 Director's Cut Edition.

At the 1:18 mark is where the combat starts, you can see both Cloud and Barret taking their turns.

To me, it didn't look like that, but I'll have to watch it again. It looked more like the shift since FF12 and very similar to FF15. You control one at a time, real-time with the only timer being when you can attack or cast magic again, while still running around to avoid the enemy. And then you can set your team to AI tasks, but you can switch to them at any time (like switching to Barret to do something specific).

Anyways, its a shame people don't just play the old ones if they haven't actually played them. At least with FF7 it is properly translated on PC. FF6, like=wise is still great in all its 2D glory. Its like appreciating an old Black and White Samurai movie by director Akira Kurosawa.

It Looks great, but I'm not too excited with the combat only allowing you to control one character at a time. Seems they went the FF15 route. I wonder if they'll have different modes, but kinda doubt it.

The 'ol drivable at-at's can't work excuse I see. It can with proper map design when one thinks simply about the paper-rock-scissors in the movie itself. Obviously the Rebels lost, but BF is more alt-history SW. In BF games, sometimes maps are designed where one side has access to more armored vehicles and those battles can go either way. One, crap players might rush into battle using those assets; but perhaps the next time, or even on a completely different server there is a team working together that puts the best players that communicate into the precious vehicles.

Well, certainly looks like all the pieces are coming together. I'll keep waiting for the Mark Hamill adventures in space though.

If the NX also allows one to play Nintendo's handheld games on a big screen, plus the Wii games, then yes it could sell millions. And then finally I would buy Bravery Default.

The concept seems sounds, but not letting myself get hyped. Been too disappointed by a lot of games lately. Only few golden nuggets in a sea of brown.

I couldn't get past 59 hours; probably just a little more than Oblivion. Never finished either game, just got way too bored with the only 'fun' thing being finding yet another cave in a Mountain to explore - its astonishing how much of the other RPG stuff, choices, decent writing, etc. they removed since Daggerfall-roguelike and Morrowind.

I'm still using Windows 7 Ultimate. Even that's getting annoying since they installed the "upgrade to win 10" pop-up without my express permission.

I highly doubt a good SS3 will ever see the light of day.

If the IP was in Levine's hands and they made SS3 right after Bioshock Infinite, I bet it would have been watered down to the extreme for a more 'cinematic' design (cut scenes, linear map, fully voiced, etc.)

Probably because the first one is a good game. If graphics are the only thing holding someone back from playing this, at least this gives them an introduction to it.

Mechanics and soundwork definitely seem good though. But, yeah, something futurey would be nice (bf2143 style).

They made the move for more than internal strife there ('invaded' really? By there own people, ok); that country is going bankrupt, and fast. The way I see it, its turning into another Greece since the IMF thinks Austerity/Debt-Forever™ is totally the solution for everything. Not exactly a great climate to run a business in while their leaders are talentless Oligarchs and other Extremist clowns illegally put in power as a sweet bonus.
