Did anyone noticed that there are no game game demos in the Xbox One console ? What's going on with that? I wanted to try some games before I bough any but obviously I can't . So I held off buying any. Sorry, I know it's off topic.

KOTOR?  Maybe KOTNR would make things a bit more interesting?

Sorry but I think it is funny how the Vita Persona game was ignored. XD  It is just a dance game, not much to be excited for.

Open world Starwars? 

Well this would be somewhat difficult with all these planets and solar systems in StarWars. 

But if they just do KOTOR3 by adding new elements from Skyrim all together in an epic scale development, that would be awesome!

Never played the persona games, but I've always been interested in them.

good news and at the same time its scary news about the new persona game.

the good thing is another sequel for my favorite title and the scary news is what if the new installment dont cut at the same level as the previous one

I agree with you entirely: "It's hard to say no to more Star Wars." Sums up my philosophy toward it fairly well, though the idea of the third Battlefront sounds enticing. 

As far as KOTOR goes, I think that The Old Republic delivers a few fairly well-written stories (the class quest line for the Imperial Agent comes to mind) and is satisfactory enough -- until they can write something else as epic as the original Knights. I feel that if they learn from their mistakes and take what they have gotten right in the past, they may be able to deliver something that surpasses even that.


That said, The Old Republic fails to be a game that's worth playing *as much* as KOTOR...

Jess makes me feel like I breathed in the "Dust of Broken Hearts."  You get points if you know what that is.

@07wintert I refuse to live with it. That...THING was not KOTOR, it was an abomination of generic MMO mixed with poopy open source engine.

@Coseniath I don't think Skyrim actually did anything new with open world games, it just improved on some things. I do agree with you though that an open world-ish KOTOR would be the dopest of dope.

@Berkut4796 You will love them.  I started with 3 and you don't have to play the others to get the story.  You could start with 3 or 4, but if you start with 3 and buy the physical disc make sure to get the FES edition if possible.  The FES edition is the one on PSN, but I would avoid playing Persona 3 on psp for your first playthrough as the game had to be toned down for the psp hardware and it is not the same.  As for 4 it doesn't matter if you play the ps2 or vita version first, but if you have the option go with the vita version.

@Jenkar @07wintert  i dont like mmo`s or the game thats why i wouldnt play it but it does tie up loose ends. also if you want more closure you should read star wars revan which technically is kotor 3 it is quite good except the ending.

@alpha_unit97 @Coseniath  Mass Effect isnt Open World so much as it is a collection of zones and levels which you can visit at your own discretion. Open Ended would be more appropriate.

@RussianMeatClob @super_tramp_tri That does seem odd but what is the significance of these events...? What is the overarching plot of this series of things? Whats your take Super?

@RussianMeatClob @super_tramp_trii don'lt know.. maybe you have seen this. let me show you something curious though:

25th of November: A trademark is filed for Shenmue 3

26th of November: An announcement that Yu Suzuki would be giving a postmortem of Shenmue with Mark Cerny as translator at GDC.

27th of November: Someone realizes a trademark has been filed for Shenmue 3.

29th of November: Sega denounces said trademark as their doing.

Doesn't this smell odd to you?

@super_tramp_tri @RussianMeatClob I was too but Sega won't fuck with Atlus's  magic I mean they would have to be straight up stupid to not do a localization of it. Also they have even shown a bit less risk aversion they Localized Hatsune Miku Project Diva f. Plus it goes both ways on the localization front we might yet see Valkyria Chronicles 3 in localized.
