    I’d love to see Tekken 7 at E3, but Bandai may save it for Gamescom.

    Azario’s Vita exclusive prediction was the boldest (and maybe the most far fetched) one I’ve heard about this year’s E3.

      Get ready to hold your vita’s high!

      By the sounds of things Sony will have to reveal that all the Vitas are actually digivices and we can summon our own Digimon.

      60% chance of happening!

    Anyone who listened to this ignore what they said about Drakengard 3 that game is bad. The final boss is the worst boss fight ever because it is a mother fucking rythem game that takes like 20 mins and if you fuck up once you have to do the whole thing over. That and the games frame rate also drops below 30 all the time so from a technical side it also sucks.

      Yea, it had its problems. I’m surprised you didn’t bring up the dragon parts. I think those were my least favorites. However, I think is a game that should be played and you can get it for cheap.

      Well it’s a drakengard game. For those that are on the fence, the other 2 games give you an idea what this is like. It’s not for everyone.

      I have to agree regarding the final boss – it was probably the hardest final boss I have ever played because there was no preparation for it at all (the rest of the game is a beat’em up dynasty warriors-like game). I couldn’t beat it normally because the timing had to be EXACT and there was no visual cue on the timing like a DDR game. Had to synch up my game with a youtube video.

      Nevertheless, the rest of the game was still very fun to me. The director’s story-telling style is interesting (the main character goes from crass and ruthless at the beginning to more layered towards the end of the game as her actions are explained), and the music is also good.

    Thanks for asking the dead games question from twitter. I agree that reviving Shadow Hearts and .hack games would be great (even though people may confuse it with SAO). Anything Suikoden or Grandia would be great for me.
