To keep in current, on the lead-up to Christmas, seeing Star Wars: Battlefront 2 heavily advertised on TV towards families and children feels... super seedy. While I personally won't be touching that game with a 10-foot-poll, seeing it pushed out into the colourful Christmas scene with no issues raised or concerns met, ugh... the power of Stars Wars huh?
They completely removed all that stuff after the backlash didn't they? Makes it a bit easier to digest I guess

Now for something completely different...

This one is for the Cage-heads out there (and I don't mean Nicolas Cage - those are "Cage-juns"), if you thought Indigo Prophesy and Heavy Rain were too realistic, prepare for this hilariously alarmist article regarding the very "realistic" upcoming David Cage opus: Detroit.

And yes, I do live in a dumb country. I hear New Zealand is nice - I'd recommend holidaying there instead. :D
Turnbull: "The ABC is too left leaning!"

*Very quickly guts the ABC so that it relies on clickbait bullshit and mandated "other sides" stories to stay afloat*

Fucking Hack on triple j is the worst and that it actually gets treated as legitimate discourse by a young and impressionable youth actually taking an interest in politics and how it affects them makes so angry.
Did they permanently remove loot boxes, or just temporarily until things died down? I'll confess I'm half paying attention to all the latest news at the moment.

Oh Hack... Hack by name, Hack by nature.

Much as I hate to be ‘that guy’, but I get the feeling this one needs its own thread given we keep coming back to it?
Good idea.

Soul Calibur 6! And they've gone back to a point in the timeline that means my main exists as she should, not as some weird Angel Templar thing! (seriously, 5 went to some odd places)

I haven't actually played a Platinum game for more than a few minutes. But I did anticipate a Bayonetta 1 and 2 Switch release so I'll probably start there. 3 was a bit of a surprise.

What are the chances of Dreams being delayed to 2019?

Ok so hear me out, this game is gonna be a sci-fi Silent hills and it's gonna play around with different dimensions and time and space. In fact I think we have seen a few gameplay elements in this trailer, remember how in silent hill the fog obstructcs your vision so the way the game tells you there are monsters near is through the radio? Well I believe that device shown in the trailer is gonna have a similar function gameplaywise in warning you about these invisible interdimensional creatures, also if you pay attention we see our first health indicators, every character wears handcuffs that are blue and as their health deteriorates it turns red as its seen by the guy crushed under the bus and the other guy that stabs himself and that clearlly shows his bracelet going from blue-green-yellow-orange-red now what Im really interested to see represented is how the connections aspect is gonna play gameplaywise but I think that baby is the key to that since we`ve seen him being traded around by the characters. But man there should be a category every year called "Best Hideo Kojima trailer" because there's nothing else like it.

Overall I thought the game awards was actually better then say E3 in terms of annoucements and I think the show was actually pretty good, it's unfortunate that between every moment of excitement and genuine celebration there has to be a fucking comercial but I think the show is doing the best it can within these constraints props to Keighlly.

Sorry, but MGSV burned me too deeply to ever start theory-crafting and speculating about a Kojima game (or any other game, for that matter) for years on end ever again. I just want to wait in peace until the damn thing gets released and savor every minute of it without being burdened by unrealistic expectations. :P

2022 can't come soon enough.

Yeah, b-but... the trailer itself is fine! I just don't want to speculate about it too much! Big difference! :D

I can't wait for Death Stranding. Kojima is a genius.

I agree. I didn't actually watch the trailer, and I'm not interested in reading anything about the game - when it's released I'll pick it up (Kojima's games, even with all their flaws, have done enough over the years to get a free-pass from me).

It's nice to go into an experience without expectations, and just let that experience speak for itself.

So more Death Stranding news and concrete ones if dont like to especulate, Kojima goes into some of the game mechanics actually shown in the latest trailer, he goes over a few details of the world and talks about how the Sag-afftra strike has impacted the game, pretty good information if you're interested:
http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/12/11/ ... y-and-lore

Now I do share some of the sentiment that you dont want to overhype yourself by theorizing over every frame of a trailer and there's something to be said to going in blind into an experience(for example I havent watched anything Last Jedi related to do just that) but just let me quote MathewMatosis here for a second:
"From the moment we watched the first trailer we were all already playing Kojima's game"
This is in relation to the hype up to MGS2 which was the ultimate betrayal of expectations, that's why I like following these trailers and theory crafting.

Here's something to make me cross, even though I thought Sonic Forces was even worse than modern sonic usually is, its added in Super Sonic (strange that wasn't in the game at all before).... as paid DLC. For the price of one pound fifty, or 2 euro!

Anyone heard of Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gaming/news/ ... biles/amp/

It's not new news, but I'd not heard of it until today. Out 'soon', it's apparently the full version of FFXV, made for mobile. It supposedly contains all the story, all the missions, but simpler controls and cutesy graphics.

I won't be buying it, but I really like the idea in principle. Not something I've seen done before at all. Phone gamers usually get either a ham fisted effort of cramming awkward controls and a full game on to mobile - which just isn't what people want, or something totally different like a match 3 puzzler or card battler based on the source material.

Given the ridiculous pricing of SquareEnix games on mobile (over £20 for FF9, which is outrageous) I can't imagine they sell like hot cakes, but that aside it's a very interesting idea and I applaud them for trying something a bit different.

I've seen that FF15 Pocket Edition before. It was announced a while ago. I kind of like it in theory. Not sure I would actually play it though. There were mutterings of it getting a Switch version at some point, which I would be more interested in, but there's a bit of confusion surrounding that. There are also a few quotes out there that suggest Squeenix are looking in to putting the full game on the Switch instead. Somehow I doubt that will happen, but still. Not clear what those guys are up to at the moment.

This just in, I don't know about you but I've been hoping beyond my wildest dreams that this would happen! The remaster the entire world has been asking for!

I mean, why not? Surely the series has a built-in audience by now. Plus, remasters and re-releases of five year old games are all the rage these days.

It's actually been highly requested by the AC community due to its release at the tail end of the 360 generation. It's one of the more competent and interesting entries.

Today I learned there is such a thing as the "AC community".

I jest, I jest. :P
