I finally played the demo for Heavy Rain last night and it feel like an incredibly natural evolution of the adventure genre and I'm not sure I can actually describe it in any way to make it sound good other than "just play it". So yeah, I'm even a little more excited now.

The Molyneaux thing started a while ago when he said that RPG's have been fundamentally flawed for the entirety of their existence.  When I read it I looked at Diablo, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Valkyria Chronicles, Fallout and went "nope."
I wouldn't say he's wrong, I'd say that Molyneux can't do any better. In fact he does far worse.

I don't care if it's innovative or not I am fucking balls-out excited for this game.

The Fable franchise hasn't disappointed me yet.

yeah, I was just about to post that. Don't get me wrong, I'm totally excited for more Fable.  I just get irritated hearing Molyneaux hype his shit up like it was Jesus.

For example, the weapon morphing thing looks and sounds pretty cool, but the way he describes it, like no-one has ever done it before, is just annoying.

Yeah, that's fair. tbh I kind of ignored all Molyneux-related Fable and Fable 2 articles before the release of those games, for the simple fact of him overhyping the thing. Without heavenly expectations, I'm able to thoroughly enjoy the experiences Lionhead does manage to create.

That being said, of course, I might break down for Fable 3 because god dammit I want to play it so bad

I heard that in the new Fable, the main character will be so customizable you can remove his lowest ribs allowing him to blow himself.  For this reason, the game will be banned in Australia.

Please spread this rumor as widely as possible.

But will it be faster? My main gripe with the game was that it felt like I was trying to fight through quicksand, made even worse when they released Marvel vs Capcom 2.

I doubt they'll be changing the core gameplay. Four is more like Super Turbo 2 and ST was about the same pace. It's not a versus game, which I'm actually happy about because I prefer games about making good decisions than ones about punishing people's mistakes.

Man, I was about to come in and post that I was excited about Super Street Fighter IV, and that that is a big deal for me because I hardly get excited about fighting games anymore, but you just had to go and beat me to the punch, huh.  Ah well, here's a different clip, in HD:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tmn93KTBGs&fmt=22

I'm pretty excited about it because it looks like it's not taking itself too seriously (I mean, Zangief as Colossus? one of Dhalsim's special attacks is hitting a dude over and over from above with his entire body using his arms like rubber bands?  c'mon, that's pretty funny), but also the gameplay looks really good.

So ok, to temper my disappointment I'll talk about some other shit.  Fable III could wind up being alright, but I wish Molyneux would just shut his fucking mouth.  Like, I am more excited about a smaller, less-hyped sentence in the blurb:

Quote
The co-op will also allow you to separate in game, he said.

"You could go off earning money, while I go off to kill people," Molyneux said. "It's a true co-op experience."

I know that's available in some co-op games already, but there are also some where they tie you together like you're in some kind of chain gang.  It's nice to know you'll have that kind of freedom to split up when you want to, then come back together and TCOB on a big job.

And I know we're talking about it in the other thread, but Civ5 is probably gonna get me interested in the Civ series again, which will probably do bad things for my sleep patterns :(

I think it comes down to the fact that the Civilization games don't lend themselves to being played mindlessly, which turns them into engrossing time-thieves despite their lack of visceral thrills. After all, most games, even twitchy games, are often most engrossing when you're still pinning mechanics down and figuring things out as you go-- I can hold a conversation while playing an old-hat FPS game easily enough, but with a shiny new unfamiliar game I might not even notice you enter the room. So since you cannot really play Civ games by rote, so they have a funny way of sucking hours out of your life before you realize they're gone. For example, I do distinctly remember feeling bored the last time I played CivIV. I also remember the fact that the session lasted 4 hours before I noticed.

I'm just going to hijack this thread for a brief moment because I don't really think it's worth making an entirely new thread, but Nintendo just announced a boatload of shit for the next few months.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is out on May 23rd. The first SMG is one of my favorite games of this console generation, so this is the Wii game I've most looked forward to in a long, long time. Trailer's here, it looks great. Apparently the hub will be a planet shaped like Mario's head, so that's awesome or horrifying depending on your perspective.

Just over a month later, Metroid: Other M is coming out: June 27th, to be exact. The gameplay is 2D sidescrolling, but apparently you can shift to first-person view at any time. As I understand it that perspective will mostly be used for exploration rather than combat.  I'm most curious about this one, apparently the preview embargo lifts in a couple hours so I'll link anything I find.

Sin and Punishment 2 is being renamed Sin and Punishment: Star Successor for the West, presumably because the original was never officially released in English territories until the Virtual Console. That one will come out on June 7th, and from what I hear it's completely balls-out crazy.

Nintendo is also co-publishing a couple third party games, which is kind of weird for them. They're working with Capcom to release Monster Hunter Tri on Wii April 20th, and with Squeenix for Dragon Quest 9 on DS sometime this summer.

That's most of the important stuff. Picross 3D is finally getting a Western release, if anybody cares, and there's a bunch of WiiWare and DSWare games given dates. Mega Man 10 is coming out on March 1st, so it'll probably hit the other platforms around that time too. Cave Story is finally coming out on March 22nd, after about 2 years of delays.

Also, RE: Monster Hunter:

goddamnit, I wish they would make a fully next-gen Monster Hunter game for PS3 (or 360, I guess) because that would be some hotshit espescially with a legitimate online setup. You could actually play MH with *pause for dramatic effect* other people!

the online for MH3 is actually going to be free and if I understand correctly, will not require friend codes.

Not that the online setup for PS3 and 360 aren't better mind you.

Also, I remembered and immediately pre-ordered Supreme Commander 2 off of Steam today and this is my favorite quote about the game. "We also have to applaud Bauman's addition of "giant fire-breathing dinosaur robots.""

Oh, that's right, I forgot to mention that. The online play in MH3 is free, which is actually a new thing for Monster Hunter since in Japan they charge monthly for it. It also has Wii Speak support, for the like... 10 people who bought that thing.

So, it turns out that Blur is looking pretty badass, much more so than I expected. Reminds me of a modern-day F-Zero in a lot of ways, and I really like the visual style of the power-ups and menus. It makes me really regret that it's an Activision game, because of my outstanding policy of not buying Activision games under any circumstances. But, I got into the beta, so I'll report back with impressions on it once it starts next week.

I believe I can objectively state that if you are not at least mildly excited for Just Cause 2, you are against fun and possibly punch babies in your spare time. You can attach dudes to things. This seems mundane, yet it opens up so many new avenues for cruelty potential. Imagine, if you will humor me for a moment. Should there be two player co-op, you could tether two cars together and match speed. There is a distinct possibility that the rope can interact with things. Sixty mile per hour clothesline.

Blur looks like F-Zero without the speed or Mario Kart without the fun. It just doesn't look fun or anything.

Also, I may be the only one, but I am excited for the new WarioWare. Just because WarioWare is one of my favourites series and I want to make my own MicroGames although I doubt it will be as cool as it sounds like.

I can't say I'm particularly excited for Just Cause 2. I'm just not much of a fan of open-world games in general, I think it's great that they're embracing the over-the-top silliness but that doesn't mean I'm really looking forward to playing it. Plus, there's no co-op, which always always always makes sandbox games better. I'm probably more excited for Crackdown 2, to be honest.

okay this isn't future-game related but it's not worth it's own thread and I'm hyped up so here it is.

I've been playing a shitload of Trials HD lately and it is a blast. I bought it when it first came out and had a lot of fun for a couple weeks then promptly forgot all about it. Well, the other day I downloaded the new content for it and some of the new levels are really cool. Also, I finally got a handle on the Track Creation Tool and have been working on a freaking epic level with multiple paths and hidden areas.

You must let go. Embrace the zen, the Thingness of the Thing. The endlessly regenerating parachute, the high tensile strength grappling hook. Newton would play it.

Treat the game's name as a mantra. Why can you jack a moving helicopter? Just cause.

I can't say I'm particularly excited for Just Cause 2. I'm just not much of a fan of open-world games in general, I think it's great that they're embracing the over-the-top silliness but that doesn't mean I'm really looking forward to playing it. Plus, there's no co-op, which always always always makes sandbox games better. I'm probably more excited for Crackdown 2, to be honest.

No co-op? THE SADDEST FACE EVER

Though I am still excited. I feel the same excitement for Crackdown 2 and APB. APB especially because I enjoy being an asshole with friends.

Got the demo this morning before I left for work. Played it for five minutes. The controls are wonky, sort of. Feels... loose and inaccurate. However, I was able to tether myself to a canister, shoot it, and fly way up into the air on it. I was also able to knock one on its side, shoot it, and grapple it as it flew away so that the course changed dramatically. I have a feeling it will be a pretty cool game.

The only thing I didn't understand was the demo timer. Is it a "play for thirty minutes PERIOD" timer, or a "play for thirty minutes at a time" timer?

It's thirty minutes at a time, though it can be extended slightly.

I haven't actually played it yet since I'm at work, but I set it downloading this morning before I left so it would be ready when I got back.

I'm also gonna DL the PS3 demo so I can play them side-by-side to compare. Can't wait for 5:30!

Also I would like to point out that the combination of Sailor Moon and faux-Kerouac / Sonic Youth spelling is perhaps the purest distillation of what this forum is that we have yet been presented with.
