If anything, I don't think they had any intention of every launching a Vanilla server and caved solely due to mounting pressure from the player base. Hardcore fans launching their own private vanilla servers and making money off their property was probably the last straw. If they don't provide it, a fan will.

I will definitely play Vanilla WoW if they do include quest tracking and the dungeon finder.
And especially if they leave the gameplay exactly as is where you can grind kite 50 mobs at once. Sick pleasure.

I was a bit disappointed with FF12: The Zodiac Age. The new job system feels really restrictive and you can't change boards after you've chosen... also the game feels much easier than the original. Kinda disappointing that they didn't include the original board as an option because now I'm stuck playing the PS2 version to get the experience I prefer... oh well.

Yes, I remember that was one of my main motivations to speccing into frost mage. Rounding up 50 mobs and then killing them with blizzard was like the ultimate power trip.

The constant focus on grinding wasn't really that fun to me, though. I would log on with the intention to gain a level or two and log off. I didn't care about the story and I just went to new areas simply to get quests and level. It wasn't fun, it just felt like a job. Interactions with other players were pretty neat, but by the time I joined the game, the leveling areas was basically empty so I was by myself, grinding mobs 80% of the time.

It's pretty incredible that the first mirror's edge looks that much better, without reflections, weaker lighting and lower res textures.

Really a testament to the art design.

^^Just recently replayed Mirror's Edge. Beat it however many hundreds of thousands of times on PS3, so this was the first time on PC, everything running at max.
Yeah, still a gorgeous game, and it is all because of the basic art design. It's one of those rare games that, no matter how advanced graphics get over time, will never really look "bad" at any point. Technically inferior, sure, but it'll always be pleasing to the eye regardless.
Catalyst remains literally the biggest disappointment I've ever experienced in gaming. It still irks me that they revamped everything, forced it into sci-fi territory (whereas the original was actually pretty grounded, all things considered), gave it a somehow less interesting story, and actually sucked out a lot of the impact and weight that the action had in the original.
At least a year and a half later, and I wonder a bit if I'm too hard on it; I may want to replay it someday just to see. But the bad taste it left with me is still there. The original is easily the more enjoyable for me.

Godot doing in a couple years things that took unity (valued in the billions) years and years (and stuff that it's not even there yet).

I'll see what's the deal with lumberyard soon.

EDIT: it's a cryengine fork, interesting.

Man, I haven't watched an HCG video in a really long time. Feels like forever ago that I last saw one. Nice to see that his Japanese pronunciation has improved. Used to be embarrassingly bad (if I'm remembering correctly; there are a lot of youtubers who pronounce things terribly).

Demons Souls servers shutting down in Feb. Time to invade some fools while you still can. I know I will be.

edit: I bet (hope) there's a Demon's Souls remaster incoming. Its not just Atlus. Bandai and Sony shutting down servers in all regions at the same time.
Main System: Activating Combat Mode.

I've never been too interested in the multiplayer aspect of the Souls games. I've only played Demon's and Dark Souls 1, but I think I was invaded a total of one time during Demon's Souls, so I guess it's pretty dead. I'm not too familiar with how it works though.

Anyway, I hope you're right about Demon's Souls getting a PS4 port. Most of the games I care about on PS3 are already on PS4 and I'm secretly hoping they all end up there so I can get rid of my PS3 lol

Gonna focus only in my main game from now on, I was working in 3 different stuff, and was mostly procastinating and not really feelling inspired by that.

While it's quite a difficult project that will need various systems in place, I can't keep the bullshit of doing things half assed because "side projects".

EDIT: supposed to go on random thoughts.

IGN got James Franco to do video game voices in the voice of Tommy Wiseau from The Room/Disaster Artist. One of the lines is Ryo from Shenmue. Pretty funny.

Suddenly I'm thinking of all kinds of classic sitcoms that ought to have their own old-school point n clicks.
I'd totally play the hell out of a Frasier one.
