    Random Video Games/News Thread

    Since we have random threads for other things, figured it would be good to have one here also...lots of announcements at E3 just happened and I didn't see many posts about it.


    Final Fantasy VII is getting a remake, and I'm very excited, though I have a feeling it will be too different for some fans and they'll complain anyway.

    Shenmue III also coming out after being sucessfully funded on Kickstarter. I really enjoyed the first one on Dreamcast, but never played the sequel since I've never owned an Xbox. I re-watched some playthrough videos of the first one the other day, and forgot some of the more tedious parts of it...I kinda wish they'd remake the first two games with modern,updated everything, streamlined a bit, I mean it's now basically being made on consoles from THREE different manufacturers.

    The tedious stuff was important! Having to walk to get to the bus! Doing your job driving the forklift! You never knew when a story beat was going to happen, you were just living your life. If everything you did just moved the story forward, it would be a totally different game.
    Get that weak shit off my track

    I really thought I should get paid for that Forklift crap, I remember that one quite well...really felt like work.

    You did get paid. In video game money. Which you could spend at the arcade, or on food for the little kitten.

    yeah, or the casino? but if I recall, you couldn't leave the casino with your winnings, so you couldn't buy the ticket from the travel agency to go to Hong Kong? uhh..its been too long since I played it

    I'm stupid excited for FF7, but definitely fearful of what they're going to change. I really enjoyed the battle system and materia system, and I could see both of those changing due to outsmarting themselves.

    Yeah, I was super excited to replay it... until I heard that it was a "remake".
    Maybe I'll just get the HD version of the original and play that.
