Yes, FF7 is a good game. I've probably played through it 3 or 4 times in the last 18ish years which for a 80 hour game isn't bad.

FF8 is also a good game I'm currently 68 hours in on vita and it plays great so I assume FF7 will too, never played IX beyond the first disk but I keep meaning to pick it up.

But as has already been said if you haven't already played it get Persona 4.

It amazes me that the anger about games journalism seems to be directed at some of the few people to actually engage in games journalism as opposed to reviewers or as Jeff so perfectly phrases it Videogamesmen.

As a 30 something year old there is enough in the world to get angry about without bringing up some crap about people not making the videogames I like, well boohoo, try walking down the street and seeing the people who don't have a bed to sleep in. And don't get me started on the idiots that use it as some excuse to get their sexist jollies off by harassing and threatening people. If the thing that you get worked up about is the content of videogames and who knows / sent a review copy of a game to who then seriously, put down the controller and take a long hard look at the world.

Should GB take a stance? As far as I'm concerned they already are.

The metric system is not purely arbitrary in the same way the Imperial system is.

1cm3 = 1ml

1ml of water = 1gram

Water freezes at 0 degrees centigrade

Water boils at 100 degrees centigrade

I would be interested to hear comparative Imperial equivalents

Anyway I'm pretty certain you are trolling or have never studied any serious science,

@cale: In the UK you can only drive automatics if you pass your test in one. Pass in manual and you are ok in whatever.

I've only ever driven automatics a half dozen times amd have never felt safe doing it. I need a clutch.

WASD all the way, would i be correct in assuming you are left handed or do you have a huge desk?

@hatking: It's still using the proprietary stuff, Sony announced the cost of that would come down a while ago, that's probably what you are thinking of.

@hunkulese: * it's not much different from eating the skin on a HAIRY Apple!

What hardware changes have there been? I saw a gpu cycle increase rumour but that's just software.

When they announced the changes they said you'd need to connect at setup, so I fully expect a pretty substantial day 1 patch then it'll be ok from there.

That just looked like cardboard crap a two year old made...Nothing impressive about it at all.... I'll take the crashes in Forza any day over that.

It's a Physics engine not a graphics engine so it isn't made to look good, It's about how it behaves and despite the big crashes that grab peoples attention it's applications are much greater than smashing into a wall.

Real working suspension, shapes that flex bend and deform. If what they are doing takes off someone else can apply Forza 5 shinies.
