Kingdom hearts and final fantasy
Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD I have to admit that this was hard to get through for the first 3/4 of the game, but not because the story was confusing. By now the story was clear. What really sucked were the "drop" mechanics forcing you to swap between Sora and Riku as well as the "spirit" pets you had to mess with. However, by the final world the story was once again so utterly important it was mind-blowing.

In 2012, Square Enix appointed Hajime Tabata and his team that developed Type-0 to start working on a prototype of the next mainline game in the Final Fantasy series (XV) for next generation hardware. During this time and troubled by the lack of smooth development on Versus XIII after six years, Square Enix president Yoichi Wada contacted Tabata and asked him what his thoughts on Versus XIII and whether the project could be salvaged or just canceled.

This was followed by a very lengthy banjo performance in this huge custom built set piece that looked like a church in a tent. Immediately following the banjo time we were treated with a new trailer for Last of Us Part II… where we find out the church tent stage design came from the game. Immediately following this however… there was a lengthy intermission as they asked every single person in attendance to move to another theater… at which point some generic commentators showed up and started commenting on their own show. Finally once we moved venues almost 20 minutes later… we were presented with a bamboo flute solo of some sort. Then finally after that… the show became a little more … [Read more...] about E3 Monday Roundup: Square Enix/Ubisoft/PC Gaming/Sony
