Video Game General 4.0: You wanna enjoy your console? There's an app for that


One of the many reasons why I don’t see anything wrong with them. This was the case for me with Darksiders 2 and Borderlands TPS (which I enjoyed a lot more than I thought I would).


That doesn’t bother me too much really. I still think the switch is neat, but what has killed the hype for me is all the issues people are having. I think what irks me the most is how cheap the POS dock is.


Changing the story is the worst decision they could make. You don’t buy a remake of a classic title expecting “something different.” You buy it to relive the experience. This isn’t one of those games where you get to decide how the story pans out and I’d like to keep it that way…

…because if it was up to me, Zack would be the main character.


FF7 doesn’t need to change a ton of story stuff, but I think they could provide a couple of alternative scenarios. The one the sticks out to me is saving/redeeming Dyne and maybe getting him as a new party member. I know people who don’t like Barrett really don’t care about that story, but it could have more impact, as Dyne was one of the many characters that I’ve never even seen artwork for, so I don’t know exactly what he’s supposed to look like.

I’m really not sure how I feel about no random encounters being confirmed, main problem being that means probably no overworld. WTF is FF7 without an overworld with random enemy encounters?? Are they just gonna spawn out of sight?

Meh, doesn’t really matter I guess, shit won’t be out for another 5 years.


Since the game’s going the action route, and seeing what they did with FF 12 to 15, more than likely you’ll just see monsters and enemies going about their business, and have the option of moving/driving around those bums when you don’t care to fight.


FF7 remake isn’t turn-based, that’s the best improvement it could get.


Aerith NOT dying now would cause as much of a riot as her dying did back in the OG FF7.


Not sure why people want the story changed for FF7, only changes that should be made is the ones Square said they were gonna do like better presentation via dialog and and prob some new and/modified plot to better incorporate events of Crisis Core since now people are away of those events


The story probably won’t change, but they’ve already confirmed it’s not just a “remake” so it’s gonna be a whole new experience altogether.

Like they also said, if you want the original, just play the original.


Not being turned based is one the most disappointing things for me with the FFVII remake. I liked the turn based gameplay and it sucks to see it gone.


I am honestly rather glad they ditched the turn base gameplay.

What I would REALLY like is if it will let you actively switch between party members during fights on the fly.


“Classic” style turn-based gameplay in the style of FF and DQ and the like really just doesn’t cut it anymore in a large majority of cases. They were rarely as deep as its proponents like to claim.

Going forward, more turn-based RPG systems need to take inspiration from the turn-based tactics genre, which lends itself better to having actual strategy and interesting tactical decisions.


Dead Rising 4 will get new DLC called “Frank Rising” released on April 4th

Preview for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Dicusses characters and level design. It takes place a year after Uncharted 4 and Drake won’t make an apperance.

Examu, developers of Arcana Heart turned to crowdfunding to raise money to port Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars!!! to PC with English localization.

Digimon Cyber Sleuth sequel announced.


This is really my only concern regarding the gameplay and it seems like you can so I’m not even that worried about it.

Having regular attacks with magic and specials on cool down sound like it could replicate the feeling while still making the battle feel more active which I would certainly hope is the plan.

I’m honestly excited just to see Cyber Connect making a PvE game again. I really like .hack GU and since then all I’ve seen is poorly balanced spectacle fighters and that Asura movie.


Told you so


I guess they weren’t lying about that new Megaman Cartoon teaser being old because

I guess it’s…better…


Just finished another play through of Hyper Light Drifter- I highly recommend it to anyone who missed it before.


It’s definitely a better design. Now Mega Man’s head is too big for his body.
