    Don’t forget that the next core Final Fantasy has been tipped for the show as well. I’m very keen to see what it is.

    @2 That surprisingly doesn’t bother me, as I don’t feel like picking up next-gen as soon as they come out. Same reason I was happy with Fable HD announcement. Although, I did want Thief but meh, it’ll just be down in price when I do pick up next-gen :D

    I have to say I am even more intrigued by Murdered:Soul Suspect after seeing this video
    (includes gameplay and new info).

    Square Enix should probably be the last to go full steam ahead into next gen development with their recent track record of commercial “underperformers”.

    Deus Ex: The Fall (iOS / Summer)
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution The Director’s Cut (Wii U / 2013)

    These two jewels make me sneer. The Fail debacle can be seen in yesterdays news and that HR’s Director’s Cut is borderline insult for us who purchased that game on PC or other consoles.

    Director’s Cut contains WiiU exclusive content. Re-designed bosses so they better fit into what people expect from Deus Ex, new content / missions and other gameplay improvements. Key words being “Exclusive for WiiU”.

    @6 Yeah, it’s my most anticipated game from Square Enix as well. An interesting and revamped L.A. Noire with a supernatural twist? Count me in. A character resembling John Marston? Fucking day-one.

    And nothing of value was presented.

    @11: I find it both depressing and hilarious that the guy constantly wanting publishers to try out fresh ideas in new IPs is completely uninterested by Murdered.

    Just goes to show…

    @12: Murdered looks like an interesting idea, and under other circumstances I would have bought and supported it. But unfortunately, it’s being published by Squeenix, and Squeenix has ruined so many good things that I don’t think the company deserves money. Now if they announced a Parasite Eve 3 or an FFX-2 do-over without Toriyama involved, or an FF4 sequel that either redoes or undoes the story of FF4:TA (character roster and premise was promising, execution of story was awful), then that would turn around.

    Remember Me was in the same boat as Murdered is for me at one point in time.

    Jesus Christ, how old are you? Square Enix (like EA, like Take 2, like Ubisoft) is a company made up of thousands of different people – it’s not all just one guy! Different teams, different ideas, different outcomes.

    Grow the fuck up, already, will ya? You’re supremely erudite and I’d love to debate you, but you come across like a 15 year-old butt-hurt fanboy 90% of the time!

    It’s a shame, ‘cos otherwise I’d say you were in the top 10 contributors to the comments.

    I thought they were actually doing good as a publisher.
    Sleeping Dogs, Tomb Raider, Deus Ex to name a few.

    @14 “…but you come across like a 15 year old butt-hurt fanboy 90% of the time!” Aaand we’re done.

    @14: Different teams, different ideas, that money all goes to the same company, and that company uses that money to fund more terrible projects that ruin things that used to be good all to satisfy greedy yearnings. The majority of the time, an interesting idea is not worth the cost of seeing yet another great thing torn apart by people that have no understanding or respect for the IPs they’re working on.

    And you’re right, it’s not all just one guy. It’s multiple guys, from multiple teams. I may talk about Toriyama, but he wasn’t behind all the projects that do terrible things. If he was, I could have left it at only refusing to buy and play what he makes, which is what I was doing until a couple years ago.

    Here I come

    @16: …not that I have anything against 15 year-olds and their butts.

    Some of my best friends are 15 year-old butts.

    Just saying.

    EDIT: Btw… “an interesting idea is not worth the cost of seeing yet another great thing torn apart” – this sentence makes NO SENSE. An interesting idea here isn’t worth supporting because of uninteresting idea there?

    What. The Actual. Fuck?

    @19: Extra extra, read all about it, Gheritt White admits to boylove! Also see Dave in a bikini!

    EDIT: No, it makes perfect sense. One team of the company makes something good. Okay. Great. The company makes tons of money from that project. What do they do with that money? Surely, some of it might go to another good idea, but more often than not it goes to taking an IP that was an absolute masterpiece in the past and shitting all over it with whatever popular crap is considered necessary to sell it to “modern audiences.” An interesting idea for one game is not worth taking a rusty pipe to something that was excellent until it’s a horrible mockery of what it used to be for another.

    I’ll screw anything with a hole, me.

    Not averse to making one if needs be, either.

    @19 You described him perfectly,hence the bolding.
