    Sierra is, in fact, bringing King's Quest back with the help of The Odd Gentlemen

    Also?

    They're making Geometry Wars 3

    Wouldn't be surprised if Square took one look at the money on the table, one look at "Uncharted 4 late 2015" and thought "Yeah, we can wait a few months for a PS4 Tomb Raider"

    I like seeing exclusives.

    Maybe that's weird, I don't know.

    But I like it better when the consoles actually have a decent lineup of games that are their own.

    Maybe it's because I tend to get all the consoles and want to feel justified in it, I guess.

    I'll be happy to have a reason to turn my Xbox on. It's been since May.

    I understand that when people see a game they'd like to play, but know that they won't be able to, either for a longer time or even ever, that might be a bit frustrating.

    But I don't think that it's actually wrong for this to happen or anything. Every generation has third-party exclusives. Some timed, some that last forever.

    Still waiting for that PS3 Tales of Vesperia port BTW Namco

    Exclusives are dumb. I get why companies do it for marketing reasons but as a consumer it is just an annoyance, especially given how similar modern consoles and PCs are to each other.

    In other news I started replaying Front Mission 3 on my Vita, going to do the other storyline than I played last time. I forgot how good this game was, I just spent 30 minutes just surfing the games fake internet network reading articles about what is going on the world.

    It is very hard for me, having good taste in things and not liking terrible games.

    After 3 I am considering hunting down 5 and playing it with a translation guide. shame they never brought it overseas.

  • CorporateLogoCorporateLogo The toilet knows how I feelRegistered User regular
    There is an english fanpatch for 5, I've been meaning to get that set up in the near future using my import copy

    It's annoying because it's a direct sequel to a game that came out on a wide variety of platforms.

    Besides, we all know Front Mission Evolved is the best FM game

    Quantum Break gameplay.

    Hey, those powers remind me of Singularity! Singularity was hella dope.

    I'm kinda not happy about the Tomb Raider news. While I own an Xbox One, I don't like the idea of Microsoft or Sony turning this generation into a heavy console exclusive third party generation. Even if they do end up being timed.

    If Microsoft can fire these shots, Sony can too, and then that's bad for everyone.

    No I don't.
  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Tomb Raider being an Xbox exclusive, even if it is just a timed one, is fuckin stupid.

    Why on Earth would you make the sequel to a multi-platform game single platform? I mean, I know the answer is "because Microsoft gave us a truck load of money", but all you get out of that is pissing off a fair amount of the game's fanbase that played it on PS3.

    I think Quantum Break looks pretty ordinary

    and for some reason this thought makes me feel like a jerk

    is there a word for not being engulfed in hype but really wishing you had been?

    They used that same Lorde TFF cover as was in that first Unity trailer in an ad for that new dracula movie when I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy tonght (Super rad btw everyone go see it).

    It immediately enamoured me to the film through association. I guess it's just great trailer music.

    I was double sold when dude jumped off a cliff, turned into bats, and swarmed the Ottoman Army though.

    I had faith that it would be good since it's Remedy...but the television show stuff they showed off when it was announced was really dumb looking.

    Keeping my fingers crossed though.

    Nah I'm with you

    It looks like a Remedy game

    Which isn't a bad thing

    Just something we've already seen a few times

    Man now I'm bummed

    I've been looking forward to Gamescom announcements and stuff and the first thing I wake up to is "Won't be able to play sequel to one of your favorite games of last generation until at least 6 months after release"

    Bleh

    Remember how we talked about how 'console exclusive' and 'exclusive' mean almost opposite things? Yeah.

  • Death of RatsDeath of Rats Registered User regular
    You know what I would have been fine with? If they announced a Legacy of Kain reboot as a Xbox One exclusive.

    That I would have been right on board for.

    No I don't.

    I seriously don't get the exclusivity deal and who it benefits other than Square. I assume Microsoft is paying out the nose for this, but I don't think Tomb Raider is a big enough franchise that it's going to suddenly jumpstart console sales for them. Titanfall seemed like a bigger lock for them.

    They're going to continue doing this

    It will mount up at some point
