Is Jonny V even going to be there?

Disney was going to E3 initially, but now that he doesn't have a job, I cant see any reason for him to go.

@mirado: I dunno, I think changing from need and want creates a whole different tone to the conversation. The underlying theme and sense of this conversation is that people are thinking that a game that requires 10 million sales to break even makes it seem like, no matter how well it sells, it will still be a financial failure. Leading to a host of unknown changes and layoffs at SE. Basically that people were worried that SE was betting really big on FFXV (Which they should honestly, its the flagship game in a storied franchise from one of the most well known companies in gaming) and they were going to get burned.

So I've been looking to upgrade my GPU recently. I know its an awkward time to do right now since both nVidia and ATI are release their new GPU series within the next several months. And I know that with that will come new, more powerful GPUs that will fill in the currently priced Cards. And also the current cards will go down in price as retailers are wanting to get rid of excess stock.

The main issue for me is that I have a Radeon HD 6850 from 2011. A 5 year old card and I really need a new upgrade. I'm looking at getting a 390 and it looks really tempting. But the issue is obviously if I should just wait for the newer cards. I don't really have interest in getting a 970 and I'm going to be buying around that price range regardless of whether I buy now or wait.

So should I wait for the new cards, and see if I should get the new cards in the current 390/970 price range, or even those cards at a discount, or if doing it now will be fine and those cards will still have good value for the new several years, even compared to the newer cards. Also I'm only going to be playing in 1080p in the foreseeable future.

I don't follow the FGC much, so I was wondering what they're reaction was to Pokken getting a spot at evo? Also thoughts on needing two WiiU's to get full 60 fps for local play.

So I was looking at getting some books to learn more knowledge of the history of the video game industry. Anyone have any recommendations they could give?

I see a lot of people mentioning combat looking like Kingdom Hearts, when I saw the trailer the first thing that came to mind for me was Crisis Core especially with the new behind the back camera for traversing the world. I've never played a Kingdom Hearts game, is the combat in that similar to Crisis Core at all?

It's Kingdom Hearts.

I'm wondering if it might be a hybrid. There is some kind of ATB-like bar that is filling in the bottom right. Also the command bar has a defend command. Unlike KH which does not. So maybe there its a bit more turnbased where you have auto attacks and you can move your character while waiting to use a stronger attack?
