Hoo boy, that was....weaker than I expected it to be. Kingdom Hearts was the same trailer from Microsoft, and so was Nier Automata.

Babylon's Fall is interesting but only because PlatinumGames was shown as the developer. If not for that I think that announcement would've been pretty forgettable for now.

Honestly to me if FFXIV was making an appearance in E3 it needs really big news. I feel like this patch doesn't seem that important to me....to be fair I didn't check out all the details, but it on the official website so it not really anything that special? Eh

RE: Square Enix @ E3 2018 - lp0 on fire - 06-11-2018

I would be hype for JC 4 but 3 left me disappointed, the map felt too small and the lack of vehicle verity left me wishing I was playing JC2, as an example: No civilian air ports.

The giant ass transport plan was cool, I tried to get one of those giant ass dump trucks on one but the plane was too small Sad

RE: Square Enix @ E3 2018 - Moonface - 06-11-2018

Just Cause 4 will have more vehicle variety though, or did what they show still lacked in comparison to JC2?

RE: Square Enix @ E3 2018 - lp0 on fire - 06-11-2018

The JC4 trailer didn't show nowhere enough vehicles
JC3: 81 (excluding "Special/weaponized" variants
JC 2: 104ish (excluding the 3 or 4 rickshaw variants)

But also They claimed JC3 was larger then 2 IIRC but it felt smaller.
Extreme weather caught my interest (since I like weather)

The tornado thing bugs me, South America isn't known for its tornadoes North America sure is, then maybe the Indian Sub contestant. SA does have an "Tornado alley" but its so small you are really limiting were in SA it is.


I question some parts of this map but then realized a lot of the areas highlighted also experience cyclones which can also produce tornadoes so I guess there is that?

"black hand" really? It just makes me think of the now way outdated controversies about Blackwater

Games I already knew about going in: Kingdom Hearts 3, Dragon Quest XI, The Adventures of Captain Spirit, & Octopath Traeler. The only thing interesting I saw that I want to see more of is Babalon's Fall. The other games "aren't my bag baby".

RE: Square Enix @ E3 2018 - Monocle - 06-11-2018


i had to skip the trailer because I don't want to know about the story or anything. media blackout. but I beyond excited! I love that entire series!

RE: Square Enix @ E3 2018 - Mr EliteL - 06-11-2018

Other than the gameplay of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, I couldn't care less about everything else that was shown. A couple or so new things, but those did nothing for me. A few things were shown again. I think the KH3 trailer was very slightly different to the other, unless I am remembering wrong. Had a Ratatouille segment, extended clips and some clips removed? Eh, but nothing really substantial.

RE: Square Enix @ E3 2018 - Dragon Lord - 06-13-2018

No NieR Remaster. Square Enix gets an F-.

Dragon Quest XI footage is nice, but that's a game we already know about and have seen footage for previously, so they don't earn any points for that one.

Square, just give Yoko Taro a good budget and let him and Platinum Games remake NieR. You want to cash in on Automata's success and popularity? Well, there you go.

RE: Square Enix @ E3 2018 - Moonface - 06-15-2018

I know it's unlikely but maybe they're planning on it after Automata is on Xbox so that a Nier remaster can appeal to a wider audience. Plus it depends how much work would be needed to remake the game because I wouldn't want Square to announce it for the sake of announcing it and then waiting ages for it like KH3 and FF7R.
