Additionally, I'm led to believe it's called The Other Side of the Coin

I am infuriated by this! Did anyone else see the teaser picture where they are overlooking the first scene from the assassins point of view?

Creating DLC from the enemies point of view is so generic and unimaginative for a game with untapped potential.

They've created a variant world with many different "countries" where they could do some truly epic things, a completely different twist on energy solutions where they could create new imaginary kinds of weapons and technology and even memorable characters with rich back stories but my guess is that they'd rather play it safe and do something that has been done over and over again. Even DLC which featured the knock-on effects of Corvo's actions or even DLC where you play Corvo whilst he's making a name for himself would have been more interesting.

I'm probably complaining too much, but I definitely feel that most games lack the guts to up their ambition. Or maybe my ambitions are unrealistic. Had to vent this!

Good work! Love talking final fantasy. Firstly, my order of greatness would be: 1st ff7, 2nd ff8, 3rd ff10, 4th ff9, 5th ff4 and the rest is pretty much irrelevent.

I wish I was born a bit earlier, born in 1990, so yes I'm 22, and my first ff was 7, and tbh I think I'm pretty lucky, although 6 is pretty good.

That's not far away from my favorite games of all time list by the way, throw fallout 3 in 3rd and oblivion and skyrim in there somewhere and jobs done!

FF8's junction system is the best thing ever once you learn to manipulate it, it's basically a case of slappin' ultima on different things across your characters. FF9's ability system makes the game quite easy because you can grind for an hour inbetween plot points and "be **** 7 is my favorite because you are forced to explore to find materia and new equipment, and it makes you want to progress through the story to get the more powerful items.

And then there's 10. Sphere grid... celestial weapons... mirrors, chocobo's, balloons, seagulls and frustration... crests, sigils...there's almost too much, until you realise you seriously need them to fight in the monster arena. The monster arena is basically an entirely seperate game and it's marmite all over. I love it but I hate it.

10-2, just don't even go there, the plot isn't actually THAT bad but the gameplay... dresses? Really? I gave up after that, tried 13 and wasn't impressed.

Remakes/remasters of 6, 7, 8 and 9 would make me one happy man.

Lost odyssey is perfect for the FF fan, last remnant is brillliant if you fancy a challenge, word of warning though, last remnant has REALLY vague achievements. So don't get last remnant if you're an achievement hunter :):)
