    Meh. The only good news is that Bethesda is getting all of this nonsense out of their system so that they can do what they're supposed to and focus on huge, single player RPGs!

    Official word expected today, but various sites are saying that the first episode of the FF7 remake will be released on March 30th, 2020.

    It's March 3, not 30.

    Boy, aside from FF7R and Nintendo's presentation, this E3 blows chunks.

    Even better. Any details on how many "episodes " it will be split up into, or if there will be limits on what you're able to do in each? I haven't found that info yet.

    I mean, if I'm willing to grind and get to level 99 and amass a million gil in the first part, will that all carry over?

    They said it'll come on 2 BDs, so, probably 2 episodes.

    If they aren't going to show some approximations of actual gameplay, then I'd really like them to just be honest and lay out what the expectations are for the game, the important details, what will be included, ect. But a lot of studios are doing those kids of things at other events now, which is good.

    This looks off the.. you know.. CHAIN?!



    As someone who is a fan of Devil May Cry, Nier: Automata, and Bayonetta, looking very much forward to this one.

    This E3 didn't turn me on to any new games. The games I was interested in before the show are the same games I'm interested in after the show. Only Nintendo really showed off new things.

    I really really hate how this industry is centered around console generations. It results in dud years like this. Everyone is waiting for 2020. Why? I have a PC, it's better than consoles. Give me the games on PC.

    Well, I've been saying for about two years that this was going to happen, but things are actually looking better over the next year than I expected them to. Excluding sports titles, I could have three more games released in 2019 that I'm interested in, and then three more in the first half of 2020. Given that I absolutely won't buy them all at launch, it'll give me time to gradually get to as many as I like before late 2020 when we should then have the floodgates open up.

    https://www.dualshockers.com/square-enix-final-fantasy-7-remake-parts/

    Worryingly, but not shockingly, Square now says that they aren't sure how many parts the game will be split up into. Par for the course for those guys lately, I guess. We'll probably be playing three games spread out over the next decade.

    In this seperate article, Square seems to indicate that the time between games will likely be several years....

    Hopefully they won't need to remake the remake by the time the remake is completed.

    It's the other way around man. FF, GTA, all on console first. I'm still sitting decent with my old but still relevant i7-3770K and 8Gb 1060 (only because my 770 Calssified died and I didn't want to spend CAD$2K on a 1070 or 1080).

    I think Cyberpunk may force me to get a new rig though. I'm overdue.

    Good news/bad news with the Avengers game. They say that you'll be able to play the whole game offline single player if you want to, which for me is the most important thing. But unfortunately, you can only play single player at home on your console. There had been stories that it was multiplayer locally, which had me excited that I could play with both my wife and daughter, but sadly that's not the case.

    https://gamingbolt.com/final-fantas...sists-of-two-blu-ray-discs-producer-clarifies

    The FF7 remake producer further clarifies that the first game, the one coming in March, will itself be two Blu Ray discs. As far as I know, this is unprecedented since Sony moved to the Blu Ray with the PS3. I haven't had to swap discs out during one game in a long, long time. I imagine most younger games have never done so.

    They should have named it FF7: Retold as opposed to Remake. A remake, it ain't, by the looks of it.

    What's the difference, in your opinion? They remake movies and TV shows all the time, and while they generally commit to the same outline and themes, everything is usually refreshed for current times and the plot is often tweaked. That's essentially what's happening with FF7.

    The battle system is essentially not the same, at all, which was 90-95% of the Playstation game. I guess there's really no difference.

    It is, no doubt. But the system that they're using in the new game should be familiar to people who have been playing action RPGs the last decade or so. I enjoyed playing the remaster of FF12 with the old system, and I know that I'll enjoy the remaster of FF8 when it comes out too. But I'm eager to jump into what they're doing with 7 and have fun also.

    I'm honestly curious as to what the time spent in this upcoming game will be. The devs keep talking about how Midgar was such a large part of the original, but that's not how I remember playing it. That was where the good story was, but I know that I spent 75-80% of my time outside of the city exploring and leveling up.

    Midgar was probably about 10% of the main game, which is a lot for one singular "city" in RPG-standards, especially one that is 60-80 hours long.

    Making Midgar the first episode makes sense if they're expanding content and staying in Midgar longer. I DOUBT they'll do that, but it'd be nice to see.

    Well, they've said that they have, and that Midgar will be a full length game. I guess what that means to them will become clearer in the Spring.

    I can honestly say the only 2 disc game I've ever played I recall was Tales of Symphonia on Gamecube.

    All of the Final Fantasy games on the PS1 were multi disc. The original FF7 had four. I'm pretty sure that the Gran Turismo games were multi disc back then too. I know that there were a lot more, but maybe not those I owned.

    On the PS2, I think that the Xenosaga games were two-parters. The games were just enormous, like an Anime JRPG.

    https://www.psu.com/news/cyberpunk-2077-ps4-install-size/

    Its rumored that Cyberpunk's install size will be at least a whopping 80 gigs on the PS4, and could end up being larger. That's double the size of even most "big" games. I'm already to the point where I'm perpetually up against the wall with my system, and have to erase one or two games every time I want to install a new one. I might have to erase three or four to free up space for a game that large.

    http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2019/06/guide_all_ps5_games_confirmed_or_rumoured

    This is a pretty comprehensive list of the games currently in development that are expected to be on the PS5. Most of them of course will not be available at launch. If the system were not going to be backwards compatible, I'd wait until a few of them were out before upgrading, but I'll likely buy it as close to day one as possible.
