This is really, really depressing to watch:

 

 

An actual MGS3 "remake" with those graphics (and maybe MGS V's control scheme) would be phenomenal.

You say Berserk and all I think of (fondly I might add) is this :

berzerk_2.png
 

 

One of my favorite Atari games of all time. As a kid, I always thought that the smiley-face enemy (Evil Otto) was put in the game as an evil version of Pac-Man. 

 

And you couldn't kill the bastard either. It's like that snow monster in Skifree.

Yeah but who in their right minds would want remakes when you can have Konami Pachinko machines with erotic violence, like Castlevania!

Agreed. But if I was in Japan and was addicted to gambling, this would be an awesome way of burning through my life savings.  :)

Didn't Konami start making more money after Kojima left and they started focusing on pachinko?

Konami has been in gambling for years now. I live in Vegas, and they have a HUGE facility here, and it's for nothing but gaming machines. There's more money in gambling than video games I suppose.

well part of it is it's not legally considered gambling since they don't win money in most cases so there are less taxes they are paying out.  Basically a whole bunch of lego mumbo jumbo that results in them getting alot of money for significantly less work.

Yeah man, when I got down here I thought that was so cool and wanted to work there...and then I realized the truth.

I'd much rather a remake of the original Metal Gear, followed by one of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. 

 

The original MGS3 has aged pretty well, especially if played on the HD collection. Though, honestly, while a great game, it's still my least favorite of the MGS titles.

Just watched Danganronpa 3 Despair Arc Episode 1. I think the producer is the same one who did P4G anime, and is famous for being a stickler to the source material. I really liked it.

 

About to watch the Future Arc, I remember reading that the Future Arc will not spoil the Danganronpa 3 game, cannot find that source again though. Anybody remember that? I'd hate the spoil the game by watching the anime.

I have no idea if it spoils the 3rd but given the track history with the other one that spoils the game i'd bet it probably does too.

Is it going to tie in at all? I'm reading the new game is not going to have any returning characters besides monokuma.

Honestly I cannot remember the article that explains it. That's why I am hesitant to watch the Future Arc.

After watching the first episode it seems like it's going to be a prequel to the game.

I thought the third Danganronpa game was a separate story and that the whole current story would be resolved in the anime. 

 

I saw the first episode of Future and couldn't finish it. Maybe I wasn't in the mood for it, but just couldn't sit through it.

Thanks, that's what I remember reading about too, that it will not spoil the game. Will watch the first episode, I actually liked Despair EP1 mostly due to how they accurately reflected the game, not too sure about the new character (will not mention to avoid spoilers for others), let's see how that new character plays out.

 

EDIT: Just finished watching it. Not bad.

Fresh off the EVO 2016 Guilty Gear grand finals, we had an announcement that Dizzy would be joining the game tomorrow. The DLC will be free for the first two weeks I think, and you can download it even if you don't have the game yet if I remember correctly.

 

http://shoryuken.com...-cast-tomorrow/

 

The link does not a have a trailer embedded yet, but they do have a replay of the entire finals. They don't have the correct time-stamp, so go to around 7:36:00 if you want to check her out (Get it?).

 

Dizzy looks terrific too!

I'd much rather a remake of the original Metal Gear, followed by one of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. 

 

I'd trade MGSV's existence for either of those things. In fact, that's what MGSV should have been to begin with instead of the bad fanfiction level story it ended up being.

Mileena is like 1 in MK9 and I creamed my pants when I saw her.

 

Some think there might be other concerns other than the pedo aspect with her... but I can't imagine why.

There hasn't been any announcements that one would be, though they did give us the typical, "This might be released on Vita if the digital sales are good enough." Japan got physical releases, but my guess is it'll have to sell well in the US. I'm going to buy it eventually, but maybe not immediately.
