    Wait run through that digital edition again? You can order both PC and Vita games with season pass included in one order?

    I have full faith and confidence that Square-Enix will cram enough useless faff and microtransactions into Final Fantasy 7 that I will ragequit less than 2 hours into the game and play the almost certainly superior PS1 version instead, assuming that I'm not driven away before I even buy it.

    Find someone who just wants the game and doesn't care about the swag, split the price with them, grab the swag and everyone will be happy!

    The PC version of FF7 was such shit. Just total and utter crap. Maybe 15 years of Moore's law will be enough to make it playable.

    I would pay so, so much more for a copy of Assassin's Creed 3 that comes with a kitten that has the logo in its fur. I really would.

  • Kathleen_LRRKathleen_LRR Registered User regular
    @RABicle - yes.

    @Falx - I am better now, thank goodness.

    These separate retailer exclusive things are getting stupid. The best analogy I can think of... is pokemon, except with no trading between versions, so nobody gets everything on one save file.

    It's a game about assassins, so I think it'd be awesome if they did the kitten thing, but one out of every thousand boxes had a live king cobra instead- with the logo on the chest of course. So much more exciting that way!

    Kotaku got in contact with Square-Enix last night who confirmed that the "Character Booster" for FFVII would be built in, and would NOT require microtransactions or DLC downloads. :D

    The console I think could be a decent idea. At the minimum, it gives devs something to target towards, and could do specific builds or games being built around the device.

    Granted, it'd have to push enough units to make the idea lucrative enough for devs to put effort towards, but a console wholly built around digital distribution that isn't put out by the Big Three and not having to deal with their bullshit is kind of enticing.

    Just to to let people know. There is an unofficial patch for FF7 PC that fixed all the PC issues and updates the game to modern systems. I'm part of the team that has done this. You're welcome.

    I lost it at "the weird Washington's notebook thing" during the Assassin's Creed bit. Still want a kitten with it though o.o

    Oh, so you are given 10 AC3 editions, and you still whine about it? If it was only 3 editions everybody would be going: "BOO! Why isn't there more to choose from? Those editions are bullshit!". So hard to satisfy some people. Nobody is forcing you to buy that game anyway, and you can still buy it "naked", what might be boring, yes, but might as well just shut you the hell up.

    All I'm getting is "Sorry, this episode is temporary unavailable." Same yesterday when I first tried to view it, same today.

    Athanasius: You on linux? Switch to firefox, blip has problems with chrome on linux's flash player.

  • AthanasiusAthanasius Registered User regular
    Indeed this is Linux using Chrome. I'm sure it used to work.... I'll try to remember to check the video in Windows later.

    @wraph; Well, you completely missed the entirely point, didn't you? It's okay, buddy, I'll educate you. Here's a better idea. Collector's Edition: Combine Join or Die and Freedom Editions. You get the medallion, George Washington's notebook, the lithographs and the Connor statue. Boom. The bonus story DLC, which is less for each version, should be standard in every single copy of the game. It should not be day one DLC, simply for paying extra money. That's ludicrous marketing.

    You DO NOT NEED more than 1-2 editions of a game. Then it's a clusterfuck of dumb. And don't even get me *started* on NFS:MW's sudden appearance of Day One "pay to win" DLC to get the Time Saver Pack (800 Microsoft points, whatever equivalent on PSN real money dollars).. Every single car except for exclusive "Most Wanted" take down cars unlocked immediately. "Oh, I know. Let's sell someone the game, then add day one DLC that.. Removes the point of playing the damn game!" You unlock cars by playing the fucking game and doing the races. It's a blatant cop-out.

    Ah, remember when you walked into a retail store and you purchased a fully complete game, without having to pay extra for content that would pretty much already be on the disc? That was great!

    I'll withhold creepy and inappropriate comments about Kathleen's hair color or choice of shirt (as others have made in the past) and instead state that I do suddenly find her more awesome since she went to Google I/O and is thusly apparently a developer.

  • johnnywhitebreadjohnnywhitebread Registered User regular
    Of course she is! Professor Pigglesworth, anyone?
