FF12 is hella fun, story goes no where but it's addictive ass hell. I'd say play it. Even if they announce a HD remake, it would take forever to come out. Just look at FFX/FFX-2, that was a long wait. Plus, FF12 looks unbelievably great for a ps2 game
I love the Joe Danger games and the development team is very talented but the hype surrounding this game seems overboard. Expectation needs to be tempered, especially with a game with this kind of concept and the size of the team. The problem is that hello is going out there fueling the flame and I can't see this game meeting anyone's hype.
