This trailer almost makes me want to pre-order again but I know I have too much stuff to play anyway and it is better to wait for reviews.

Still you should watch this trailer (small story spoilers)

Inside 9/11: The Day that Never Ends

What system is that coming too?  I would get it on the PS4 but I hear high-res shingles look better on the Xbox 1.

You can tell a lot about how successful an actor's career is by how often they come back to the sure paycheck.

I don't think things are going well for Kate.

I am sensing this game will be very divisive.  Here is a positive article that can't quite seem to say the game is great but really wants to.  I wonder how FF15 will do...

Two Surprisingly Good Hours With Final Fantasy XV
*even the title indicates that we all expect it to be bad but it is good

Quote
At PAX in Seattle last week, I played two hours of the next marquee Final Fantasy, and I left with two main thoughts:

1) This game is kind of janky, but also kind of amazing?

2) Just how much product does Noctis use? And when do I get to play more?

A top tier title being "janky" at this stage in development makes me glad I didn't pre-order.

Quote
There are some technical issues—framerate hitches, bad lipsyncing, terrible camera movement while you’re inside buildings and dungeons—and I imagine even two months won’t be enough to fix everything, but hey, it’s an ambitious game. After playing it for this long, I’m very high on its potential.

They have two months, I think if they are not hitting their potential yet they are fast running out of runway to get the flight going!

Quote
The writing is, uh, very JRPG. Some lines are funny. Others are interesting. Others don’t feel like they were spoken out loud by a single English-speaking human until the voice actors started recording.

This kind of made me sad.  After very high quality writing in stuff like The Witcher 3 I just don't think RPGs (even JRPGs) have a good reason to have bad dialogue. 

Quote
I came into PAX not really knowing what to expect from Final Fantasy XV. I left more optimistic than I’ve ever been. It’s got so much potential.

They are two months out!  A lot of potential is what you have when you are in the alpha or beta stage - not in the final polishing stage!


Anyway I hope many of you take the plunge and can tell me if it is worth picking up.

You know, I might buy that if they had shown that kind of thoughtful planning with the Wii U, or New 3ds, etc.  Really they just sometimes seem dumb in these big decisions.
169  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Nintendo Direct discussion on: September 06, 2016, 12:44:18 PM
One thing I was struck by was the lack of anything the rest of the year - well except for the huge one (Pokemon.)  I wish there would have been something I could be excited about buying.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - Labor Day 2016 edition on: September 06, 2016, 12:41:43 PM
In the end all I did was play Rise of the Tomb Raider for awhile.  And I couldn't remember half the controls.  I need to start focusing.  I have been playing Deus Ex and before that Uncharted so going back to Tomb Raider was confusing. 

Don't get me wrong I love the game, in fact I love all three but I think I need to focus on just one of them so I can "stay in the groove"

I will add that I have found "Let's Play" videos to be great.  My job is rather dull often and I have dual monitors so I can keep one watching a Youtube playthrough pretty easily.  

I know in my heart that I will never play Dark Souls 3, Legend of Grimrock 2, or Valkyria Chronicles.  I know I would like to but I won't so I can at least see the game fully with Let's Plays.

174  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Gaming: Meh. on: September 01, 2016, 08:03:32 PM
Not personally.  I tend to lose interest after 5-10 hours though.  Something about getting over that hump just seems like work.

I'm curious to see how 3DS Pikmin turns out though.

As I watched it I remembered Lemmings.  A bunch of small creatures you command who can do different types of tasks all to get to a goal....

Get into Overwatch for free next weekend

On PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

Quote
Overwatch is going free-to-play next weekend, from Sept. 9-12. Blizzard Entertainment is giving PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners a chance to try its first new franchise in years, with access to all 22 characters and every available map.

During the free period, players can earn Loot Boxes and level up characters for as long as they like. There’s no registration required to get into the game, and the full Overwatch experience is open for business from 9 a.m. PT on Friday, Sept. 9 until 4 p.m. PT on Monday, Sept. 12. If the Overwatch newbie falls hard for the game during the free weekend, they can pick up the Origins Edition release and maintain all of their progress.

SInce they do them from time to time how about if we just put news in one thread?

Anyway today they had one.  here is a Polygon roundup

Some good looking stuff unfortunately nothing coming out anytime soon.  I am rather sad that Dragon Quest 8 is being delayed until 2017.  I was quite looking forward to it.

My Half-Hour on the Road With Final Fantasy XV

Quote
My surprise half-hour with Final Fantasy XV was illuminating, exciting, and most importantly, fun. I can't make any hard judgements until it comes to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the end of November, but I already know I'm very much looking forward to rambling down the dusty road with Noctis and his friends.

Watching a Let's Play by ChristoperOdd.  I have watched him play a few other games and enjoy him for the most part.  I also like that he doesn't seem to use foul language so I can watch with my kids.
