I've been replaying FFXII lately. Just beat FFX again a week or two ago. Also been playing Star Wars Battlefield, a great FPS; Resident Evil Code Veronica X, but mostly I play Mafia Wars, Zynga Poker and Roblox.

Bioshock Infinite, anyone...?!

It feels like it's been forever since the debut trailer for a game contained absolutely no gameplay whatsoever. It's a hell of a throwback.

Gatotsu, was that sarcasm, hahaha...? Can't tell. Sarcasm on the Internet is such a fickle fiend.

I'm patiently awaiting for Bethesda to announce Elder Scrolls V. I think about it a lot these days. My god, I love that series. And I pray it's not an MMORPG -- I'm looking at you Knights of the Old Republic series. If I wanted an MMORPG I'd go play friggin' Flyff or World of Warcraft.

Yea man it should be awesome!  MMORPG sounds bad, it would lose a lot of that awesome detail I'm afraid.

And I have no idea how the mods would work with an MMORPG. And the whole mods realm of Elder Scrolls definitely adds a lot of play value. It's one of the main components of what makes the Elder Scrolls series so friggin' amazing.

Recently finished playing the iPhone port of Crimson Gem Saga. It's delish in every way except the story, where it sadly falls short. But those beautiful sprites!

The Square fanboy inside me say," no" (: Did you see FF14 online at Ultra setting ? I don't talk only about graphics but also how they realized a Dynamic world, I just don't think Sega is capable of that when i see how they reuse RGG3(Awesome game) assets in every sequel, Also, that trailer remind me of 『Versus』 then something from Sega except with guns (:

Tushantin or anyone else familiar with Android -- does it have a store similar to the iPhone's AppStore? There certainly are a ton of Android commercials nowadays. I wonder if this'll be Console Wars II: The Mobile Edition.

@Boo: Yeah, I was being sarcastic. I have mixed feelings about Ken Levine and BioShock. I won't knock this new game until more is known about it, but I'm not waiting on the edge of my seat for it either.

Speaking of Sega, you know what my most anticipated game of the fall is? Vanquish. That spit looks AWESOME. Shinji Mikami directing ensures a day-one purchase from me; I've just been replaying Resident Evil 4, and damn is it good.

Well surprise, surprise there is another Bioshock game currently being made. Though this one isn't going to be featured in Rapture like the first and second one thankfully. Not that I disliked Rapture but I couldn't imagine another major plot taking place in that city. Rather this one takes place in a city that is in the air! I do not know much about it besides what little I have seen in the trailer but it looks to be quite interesting. Check the trailer out in the link below if you are curious about it.

The BioShock Infinite teaser was obviously (in at least partially) a nod at the original BioShock's teaser trailer...also, it can't have been long since I know there have been TWO (completely different, yet completely without gameplay) for Star Wars: The Old Republic...In general teaser trailers have been around forever (plenty showcase at Cons)...

I've been playing them games in my sig. lol

Wow, so has anyone played Metroid: Other M yet? I won't be able to since I don't have a Wii, but I'm reading a lot of forum chatter about how Team Ninja completely ruined Samus' character in the minds of a lot of fans. Any Metroid fans here want to give their take?

Metroid: Other M seems to have gotten pretty great reviews. It's much more story-oriented from what I hear, and they actually make Samus speak (instead of a silent protagonist that Nintendo so adamantly loves). As such, it's bound to great some controversy. Besides, when Prime came out, there was a lot of hoo-haa concerning the change to first person. As a big Metriod fan, I can't wait to play it! It surely SEEMS like a great step in the right direction...

(I'm even more excited about Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, though.)

In the meantime, I've finally picked up Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. That should hold me over until September 7th...
