The dialogue choices reminds me of Alpha Protocol. Interested. We definitely need more protagonists who aren't white and I'm not one of those PC types...still is bit weird everyone is speaking with American accents though. Would totally play it in Persian with English subs.

Also, Dark Souls 3 is out in Japan, streamers on Twitch and YouTube have access to it and people are playing it via a workaround the Xbox One's store buying through JP section of the store then reverting back to US/Canada/UK/Aus/etc account which reverts the game into English, so it's out there and there's spoilers abound. Reception so far is very good. It's gonna be a loooong two and a half weeks. Yeesh.

If it's not some pro-Iran propaganda, it could turn out decently.

It's made by Iranians living in Canada and the US so I doubt it, though it won't be pro-Shah either by the looks of it.

Here's a good article on the gaming industry in Iran itself: http://www.polygon.com/features/2016/1/ ... ry-of-iran

^^Yeah, if only the originals could be re-released and localized first. Always wanted to play those, but the closest I could get was Attack of the Friday Monsters on 3DS.

The interview made me lose some respect for Kojima for his ill-treatment towards Hayter. Creatively, it made sense to replace him as Big Boss but to constantly want to replace him even on games like MGS4 was just not cool. Given the fact he wanted his name plastered all over the games, I definitely believe it to be pompous.

Yeah, i felt the same way as you when i heard that too... :-(

Hopefully we will continue to here Hayter's voice in future games (outside of mgs of course...)

I'm the only one that only enjoys reviews of games already played ?

It's like if I haven't played X, I just look at the scores from various places to see some consensus, but I like to read/watch reviews of games I've already played to actually see how they differ.

Has anyone here played 'Stardew Valley'? I'm hearing Shenmue-esque vibes/experiences/immersion with this game. Seems that there is more to this game than meets the eye... (although saying that, it does look pretty!)

God of War 4 images leak and its looking like it may be based on Norse mythology this time around. Interesting setting, but im not sure if they can just throw Kratos into that setting and have everything be kosher, looking forward to new info on the game.

Agreed, surely they should just change the character to a Norsk equivalent of Kratos? (But keep the God of War title name?) Otherwise, the concept is sound imo...

We will see i suppose, they could pull it off...
