Platinum Games wanting to do Kill la Kill game? [url=http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2015/07/15-1/metal-gear-rising-director-would-like-to-make-a-kill-la-kill-or-berserk-game#comments]I say yes.[/url] That would be so damn cool.
God Eater Ep 1 Thoughts? Wasn't nearly as awesome as I was hoping. It just had this incoherent feel from how fast it was moving and it kinda bugged me. Kinda cool premise I guess but nothing I haven't seen a billion other times in other movies, shows, and video games. Art style was pretty slick, but the music was doo doo. And the OP/ED really blew imo. Lastly, I'm starting to get tired of the male protagonists being the usual, reckless "I'm gonna save everybody and be a stupid teen like every other show!". Aside from the art style, this seemed like it was done by a different studio altogether. Well we'll see in the upcoming episodes if this show falls flat but still gets praise by the blind loyal Ufotable fans, or if it will actua
Favorite Heavensward Bgm? I've had the pleasure of experiencing them all except the A4 final boss theme (listened to it on YT though!) and wow this soundtrack is freaking AMAZING! I dare say it lives up to, or even surpasses Maplestory's OST, which I very much adore. It's going to be hard for me to pick 5 but here's my favs. And I think Dragonsong and the trailer/credit music is off limits because they auto-win imo 1.

Anvils being one time only? A lot of collectors and whatnot complain about anvils screwing things up for them some times. This game is also big on passing around the same equips and things spreading like wildfires. But I thought, if they could keep things to be rare and still have that feeling of unique (like being one of the few with a Ryude's sword) what if Anvils were a one time thing per item? Anvil'd items cannot be Anvil'd either. Or if they put a limit like one anvil a month per item or something? This was just an idea for collectors and people who enjoy having/wearing rare stuff since once a rare item is released into the FM it gets anviled to all kinds of stuff and is no longer rare anymore.
Heavensward first impressions? So I've played it for about 8 hours since the servers went up. I love most of it so far. A lot of the things that didn't impress me wound up really blowing me away, and the stuff that did impress me was more of a slight letdown. My biggest issues being the new equips and ilevel curve. The expansion totally devalued everything from 2.0. A Wootz set cost 1-1.5m per equip and it's only 110, yet the Npc shops sell i115 equips for 15k a piece. Ironworks and Demon armor is doo doo now as far as I can tell. And don't get me started on Zodiacs... Outside of that I LOVE everything else. The new maps and music are gorgeous and blow Destiny's designs out of the water imo. Sea of Clouds + Umbral Wind weather + being midni
The Story Behind Ffxiv Today is our last day of the "A Realm Reborn" 2.x era. Tomorrow is going to be a 24 hour maintenance, and then Friday we will all be in 3.0 "Heavensward". Recently I found out the full story behind XIV and A Realm Reborn and it blew my mind. It's a pretty incredible behind-the-scene video game story and I think it would be good to educate the others who don't know if it, as a farewell to our 2.0 version and as a hello to the new Heavensward version. Video Summary found [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5MT6yRe3C4]here[/url] by joshscorcher So in 2002 Square Enix released FFXI as their first Final Fantasy MMO and to this day I consider it to be legendary amongst the history of the genre. In 2010
The Star of E3? Martin Sahlin, the spokesman and Mr Nervous who announced Unravel. He's the real star of E3 this year. Personally wasn't that interested in his game, but I very much hope Unravel succeeds and sells well. Oh and the No Mans Sky main spokesman and programmer. That guy is just so damn chill and relaxed. (ironic?)
Bethesda E3 thoughts So Bethesda got to kick off the awkward-on-stage fest known as E3 tonight. It just finished (he's wrapping it up now) and am curious what the other [i]lovely[/i] people here on basil think about what they showcased. The games they showed + my quick thoughts: [*]Doom 4 - Went back to the roots of how Doom's gameplay originally was. I was hoping for a terrifying slaughterfest but to me it looked like a very flashy hell-themed Quake/Unreal Tournament. I wish they'd ram up the pace further and make the game scarier than what they showed us. I'll definitely buy it though. Looks good... but not great. [*]Battlecry - Probably just me but I can't help but shake a TF2 feel off my shoulders. Looks considerably slower too. I don't
Why? I dont get it Why is it the 3 games I want right now all come out on the same exact day? Planetside 2 - PS4 Edition: June 23rd Final Fantasy XIV - Heavensward: June 23rd Devil May Cry 4 - PS4 Edition: June 23rd And on top of that we got E3 the week before and all of my animes I watch end in the next two weeks. What's wrong with this month?
Splatoon Miiverse Easily the best Miiverse posts ever. I just spent an hour and 20 minutes just skimming through posts and dying from laughter. Even if you don't have the game (why don't you already?) you should at least check out the Miiverse community posts lol. "No Patrick, mayonaise is not a sub weapon"
E3 and Vr for this year It's probably going to be a big year for Virtual Reality. Sony will def talk about Morpheus, Oculus just finished talking about big plans and a partnership with Microsoft, a big lineup of good games this year as well. What is basil's thoughts on VR? I'm super excited! I haven't tried it yet but it sounds really neat. People are tossing the words "gimmick" around and saying it's going to fail like motion controls but I don't think this is a gimmick. I see it as a way for people to play video games; maybe not the dominant way where everyone only plays VR, but more so that people will prefer the headset if they have the time (because I can see it being a pain in the butt if you have to keep taking the goggles
Ffxiv Story length *Possible slight spoilers* Well I wanna spend these next two weeks getting all caught up on my story mode so I have access to the Heavensward content. I've already beaten the ARR story (Ultima) ams am just a little bit past it into the after story. I just renewed my sub this morning and in a few hours got from doing guildhests for the Mor Dhona Adventurers Guild all the way to just after chasing the White Robed Ascian after he talked with Minfilia. How many hours of the story do I have left? My friends say I still have a really long ways to go but want to know how much that is. I play about 3-5 hours per day and was hoping to know if I can finish or get close to finishing before Heavensward release day.
Mirrors Edge Catalyst An image popped up from their Facebook and something about E3 (cant remember what they said) had the word "Catalyst" on it worn the Mirror's Edge logo and design. People are speculating what it could be. My guess is that is the name of ME2, which is a prequel to ME1. It would make sense due to the definition of the word Catalyst. I'm sure this will be a big year as far as ME2 information goes. What do you guys think it means?
Heavensward Hype 19 more days boys, girls, and lalas! I can't help but watch the [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcVSLjvi6W0]Heavensward Trailer[/url], [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtuwltmTp9I]Heavensward Theme Song[/url], and [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbvv0rgrT4k]Job Updates/Revfamps[/url] every few nights or so. My hype level just gets too intense. I knew going on my 2 month FFXIV hiatus till the expansion would help boost my hype but I didn't think it would work this well cause I really just wanna renew my sub already. Also I really wanna buy the Collectors Edition for PS4 but I know I shouldn't... pliz reassure me that I shouldn't buy it. Reasons being: 1) It's $130 2) Square Enix aparently has all of their Ps4 C
New Splatoon Ranked Mode So this new mode I like to call Inkstrike Mode is pretty crappy imo. I like the rank system but it seems that the team with the most Inkstrikes wins. Personally I think they should disable Specials there because it's a Specials nuke war. I do very much like the new gun and map though. You guys enjoying the new mode more than I am?
Monster Hunter Online possible Western release The new English Benchmark in MHO for PC has stirred up a lot of rumors about it going towards a Western release. MHO by far has the best graphics in the series and afaik is the only PC Monster Hunter game. Unfortunately it's only in China I think but with the English benchmark it's very possible it can get a release out here in the U.S. or Europe. I REALLY hope so. I'm sure if they sold it for PC out here they'd make boatloads of cash. You guys think it'll ever come out here?
