E3 2015 Final Fantasy 7 Remake – Yes Really

I’m sure that by now you all know that Squeenix is finally doing that Final Fantasy 7 remake. I love Final Fantasy; it’s a top 10 favourite franchise. I can remember playing them on the NES and the Super NES and then later in the 90s playing bootleg ROMs of 2 & 3. I would go to the ends of the earth for Final Fantasy. I saved and bought a Playstation just so I could play Final Fantasy. I really love these games.

Oddly hearing the news of a remake of FF 7 didn’t fill me with the super excited joy like it did so many people, including these guys. Although watching them react did make me happy.

 

I think maybe the movie industry has burned me on remakes of anything. So many bad remakes just makes me wary of any type of remade thing. I mean, I am happy for it and I will buy it of course, but I just wasn’t brimming with excitement. I’m sure it will be awesome and I’ll love it, but right now I’m a bit underwhelmed. SO what do you think?

E3 2015 Dishonored 2

You have no idea how crazy it makes me to spell dishonored without a U. Repeatedly when doing searches I will spell the word right then realise I’ve not spelled it the American way. These are the things that make me crazy. Well one of them anyhow. Still, seeing yet another game with a female lead made me all kinds of happy. Sure you can play as Corvo, but I’m happy that we get to have the choice and Emily and Corvo have different abilities so there is a real decision to be made.

I’ve watched the video a few times now and I’m very intrigued by that smoke ability Emily seems to have. This is going to make sneaking and surprise attacks a thing of joy Not to mention the possibilities of run the fuck away quickly. We don’t see much gameplay, but we do get to see some beautiful design on show. The art direction was rather stylised previously and from this small clip it looks like they’ve taken it one step further and I really like what I see.

Next year is going to be full of some very awesome games.

E3 2015 Charting Uncharted

When it was announced the Amy Hennig was leaving Naughty Dog I must admit I did panic a little. She’s been the awesome force of the story behind Uncharted since the beginning. I feared that Nathan Fillion Drake just wasn’t going to be the same without her. As more information came out it became clear that some of the other driving forces of previous Uncharted games would be at the helm of A Thief’s End, I felt a little more comforted. Now of course the E3 trailer is out and it’s 7.5 minutes long. I think this may be the longest gameplay trailer for E3, or at least that I know of.

Watching this I laughed and I did a little squee. There are a couple places where it gets a little tense. It’s over 7 minutes long and in that time they really do show you a variety of gameplay, but they also show us that the wit is still there. After seeing this I’m so excited you’d think I was a 6 year old who got into the bag of jelly babies and ate them all. Totally bouncing off the walls.
