Any luck?

2003 logic? You can either have actual direction of camera control, or you can have tripod camera control, that’s all. I need to break myself of 20+ years of reverse Y axis FPS controls so I can go back and enjoy some games like this one...

Same! It’s one of my favorite games, but the controls make it very hard for me to go back into.

YES! The worst part about the game is the camera control if you need to invert the Y axis (as it also inverts X, then). Other than that, the game has such a good atmosphere and a great story and world.

As I was telling a friend today, there’s no stopping retailers from doing this again with Xbox preorder. Sure, Sony didn’t say a time, but they did say a day. Walmart broke it, and everyone followed suit. Someone else has to jump the gun on the Xbox side and the whole mess repeats.

Hey, I appreciate you doing some pull quotes. I had looked up this same info on the FF fandom site after watching AC recently. That page says quite clearly that they weren’t released in English until 2018, though. Looks like other languages got them sooner, but you’re telling me that me, seeing this in 2005 or 2006 Read more

Didn’t most of the novels/short stories come out after AC released, though?

Right. So we agree, AC added nothing of value.

Yeah, thanks. I saw the movie. Explaining what happened in the movie doesn’t suddenly make the movie good, nor well written. It just means that it clicked with you regardless.

The real issue with Advent Children isn’t the three whiniest antagonists, though. It’s the un-writting of the ending of FF7 where everything is Read more

Except they don’t combine back together. Only one of them gets Jenova’s cells and transforms into Sephiroth. Nah, the plot attempts to make sense to itself, but that doesn’t mean anything. So allow me let me reiterate: It’s absolute garbage, and makes no sense in relation to the plot of story that came before it. It’s Read more

Advent Children made no sense when it came out, but I also had never beat FF7, much less made it past disc 1. After completing FF7 Remake, I decided to finish FF7, and immediately rolled into rewatching Advent Children. STILL makes no sense. It’s a pointless story that just wants to look “cool”, but is, ultimately, Read more

No, please, go on. Explain to me why PS4 and Xbox One needed to support Audio Return Channel, why they were behind the curve on USB-C (a technology that wasn’t even finalized until 2014, nor really commercially available on devices until 2015), and how PS4, with its very popular VR headset (the most popular headset Read more

Did you just write four essays at once? WTF did I just read?

Right, except this isn’t PC gaming, it’s console gaming that MS is turning into PC gaming. And unlike PC gaming, you can’t just piecemeal upgrade parts of your console to get get a better version.

Interesting that the CPU is weaker (by just a little), but that not only is there less RAM, but it’s dramatically slower. Both of those, to me, would mean that developers will be building their titles to the lesser hardware, which cripples Series X games by only being “4K”.

Wouldn’t this mean Microsoft’s immediately Read more

Nov 2001 I had an employee walk up to me in Walmart and tell me that the new Xbox could play PS2 games. I attempted corrected her, only for her to correct me and show me the Xbox manual from their display unit state that it could play all software designated “NTSC U/C”, and the PS2 games clearly display that on the Read more

I heard someone else trying to make this same argument of we need to give people credit because they’ve figured it out with phones. Well, number 1, you’re wrong on the naming convention, at least for Apple phones. “S” as a moniker, was often the newer, fancier version of the phone the very next year. (3G > 3GS > 4 > Read more
