My hope and dreams are basically that Square Enix has something to show and doesn't just fly out the head of the studio to say "Please Be Excited"

Discussing the main character in Vampyr:

And he looks a little bit like McChuck, which is great.

Time to update my costume!


Hell yeah he does.

I usually don't like songs with vocals in video games, but hearing Florence and the Machine's cover of "Stand By Me" at the beginning of FFXV was really one of those moments that perfectly captures the spirit of a game.

Someone please confirm whether Moonlighter is Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale but without the EXTREME J-R-P-G-ness? If so, sold. Couldn't bear more than about an hour of that, despite being so excited about the premise.

In relation to the email about mocap, I’d be perfectly happy if it went in the other direction. Imagine the advanced CGI blending with live action of the marvel movies, but you could control the characters and make them run around. Of course we all know where that would end up...Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston make-out time.
