They announced that part of the gameplay is outside of the dream world, and you have to send texts to Catherine and Katherine. They also said that eventually Vincent's bar buddies will also have the dreams. What do you think?

OLD NEWS

@sagesebas: The link has a lot of old news, but I hadn't seen the texting/bar-buddy stuff before today.

@DonutFever: You're right

I have no doubt in my mind that this game will be absolutely bat shit crazy.
 
Anime is for jerks my ass.

More Catherine info! Today is a good day. The texting stuff seems like an interesting mechanic and it sounds like you might be doing some investigating of the murders? Either way looks great.

Interesting.  I thought that Vincent would be the only one he knew experiencing the nightmares and he would have to keep it to himself to not seem crazy around his friends or something.  If his friends also experience it and discuss about their nightmares together, it might make for a situation similar to Persona 4's investigation team. 
 
It's nice that we finally get a hint of what the gameplay will be like outside of the dream world.  It seems that you'll be able to choose which girl you want to converse more with as opposed to the other, which will probably influence the story and the game's ending.

Alright, I'm officially never going to 1up again. Last two times I went to the site including now, it's frozen up. Yesterday it froze for about 5 minutes before crashing my browser completely. 
 
Still hyped for this game, although I still have no clue what the heck it'll be.

Cool, I wonder if the tower in the nightmares will be randomly generated like Persona is famous for. It's interesting that there still hasn't been a peep about the actual combat, if any. The enemies in the few videos look pretty bad ass, dealing with them should be at worst just as interesting as P3/4, even if the gameplay is different.

@natetodamax: It crashed my browser too, there is no excuse for that. 
 
Silliconera mentions that thre is a bit more about gameplay-running away from monsters.

@natetodamax: Probably has to do with the redesign.  
 
I'm kind of wondering how texting gameplay works. Probably dialogue options.

Oooh that sounds pretty interesting. Good to know that I won't be entirely confined to roving about in my underwear during nightmare sequences.

Yeah, that stupid Javascript blue bar that follows as you scroll down is nothing but trouble. Giantbomb did that for a little while with a tiny box on the right, and they learned from that mistake pretty quickly.
