I think if you're curious to see what Kingdom Hearts looks like now, it's worth a peek at least. If you don't like Kingdom Hearts, or rather "Kingdom Hearts" in the same way people say they love or hate "anime", then don't bother. KH3 is that in excess.

There is some interesting things you might appreciate if you've been a fan of the series up till now, but it mostly asks that you either have a healthy amount of nostalgia for the series or are seriously devoted to the lore (or both, really). It's a bit of a mess, but it's not without charm. It wears a bit thin, and feels half-baked at points, but if you squint and give yourself over to "Kingdom Hearts" instead of Kingdom Hearts you might get something more out of it.

pauljeremiah marked this as the best answer

You can get the Complete Edition for $60, and that comes with everything plus a 30 day time card.

Pretty hype overall. So glad to finally get hard info on a new Animal Crossing. The Smash character reveal was great too.

Breath of the Wild never clicked with me, so hearing the next Zelda game is a direct sequel is a tiny bit disappointing. But I know people really loved it, and it's not the first time they've done a sequel, so maybe I'll force myself to give it another shot. If we get playable Zelda/a Zelda who's more active in the adventure I'm all for it.

Having Todd come out to basically apologize for Fallout 76 while also hyping it up, then bringing out two separate people to announce the next expac has... Battle Royale, NPCs and dialogue was surreal and hilarious.

Deathloop, Ghostwire, DOOM and Wolfenstein all look great though.

I don't think the distracting fans were plants. My theory is that certain people remember the screaming lady from a couple years back and how she won minor internet fame and have wanted a chance to be the next 'Screaming Bethesda Fan'.

@pezen: I'm not saying Schreier or anyone reporting on leaks are 'good guys' or anything, only that I agree with the idea that thinking of said reporting as shameful or that it 'spoils' a marketing campaign doesn't really do anyone any good. Marketing campaigns are going to market and reporters are going to report. That's all it is.

I think Jason Schreier summed my feelings on it.

It looks great. I'm glad they're finally moving towards having Pokemon be visible on the map. The characters and Pokemon shown so far look interesting, even if the Champion looks like a dork.

The Dynamax thing feels like they looked at Totem Pokemon from Sun/Moon and said "what about this but BIGGER". Kind of disappointing but maybe the co-op raid aspect will be cool enough to cover for it. I also had a moment where I hoped the soccer stadium would be for something other than Pokemon battles, but I guess it makes sense that it'd be for gym leaders.

I was originally planning on getting Shield, but that Shield Dog looks... Dumb as heck. I don't know if I can do it when the alternative is literally just Sif from Dark Souls.

So how long until the console market finally opens up completely at this point? Microsoft is already coming to Switch, isn't it? Now with this happening it seems kind of inevitable, especially if Google has 'em spooked.

I was never a big Final Fantasy fan but I know how much people love FF7 so I've just been following this out of curiosity. After this trailer I have to wonder what people actually think they want from the remake now that there's more actual info out there.

It sure seems like this is less a 'remake' as it is a complete re-imagining of FF7 down to it's core components. Is it enough to just see Cloud and co with fancy new models? I guess as someone without any skin in the game so to speak I'm having a hard time understanding what is going on anymore.

I think I'm with Jeff in that there's some interesting stuff they're doing, but it's also kind of terrifying to think about what it actually means for the future. Regardless of what I think, even if Stadia doesn't work out I believe we're inevitably heading towards a streaming future whether consumers agree they want it or not.
