[QUOTE="Killa_J, post: 0]Like I said on Gaf

No Rapture= Fail[/quote]

Well if the whole Rapture exclusive thing is true i don't think they would announce it on the list but at a conference. Still not sure about the whole thing.

There should/would be 5 games to look forward to but i guess they are saving them for TGS.

-FF XIII
-FF vsXIII
-FF Dissidia
-FF Agito XIII
-KH Birth by Sleep

If i still have my DS then i would be looking at KH 358/2 days.

I'm not sure why people are complaining, this year is all about marketing FFXIII not Versus. The don't want them to compete against each other and they will have an extra year to show Versus of anyway.

Oh well, 2 games to look forward to from one company is a good showing at E3 for me. Maybe 3 if they show us some Rapture footage.

The only game I'm interested in is Supreme Commander 2, but I'm getting it for PC though. However, I wish that game came out for the PS3 though.

Nier looks pretty horrible, i hate the art style
and Fron Mission shooterz i ain't interested in either
but support is good i guess (even though neither of those are develope by SE)

Rapture is rumored to be at E3, and obviously that wouldn't be on the press release, so im hopeful

Coments on the lineup:

- Dissidia: It was a while since it was released in japan, SE is slow localizing, well, looking forward to this tittle :)

- FFXIII: A new trailer would be well recieved

- FFvXIII: I wonder why one of their flagships is not there :(

- Front Mission: Never followed the series, but happy that it's not xbox exclusive. I don't quitte understand why SE gave one of their most famous series to a western developer and why the game became a shotter (wait, because sRPGs don't appeal the west? Valkyria Chronicles says hi!).

- Neir: I have yet to see the trailer, for now, what I dislike the most is that the main character is your typical macho hero. But I'm happy to finally see the game Cavia was making for the Ps3 (after 3 years of waiting), I'm dissappointed that is not exclusive though.

- Last Remnant: E3 was probably the last chance to see TLR on Ps3. I'm angry :evil:...

Usely Square-enix also has a closed door theater. I wouldn't be suprised if KH: BbS and vXIII will make a appearance there. If not I won't me missing them this time.. since they have a decent line-up. I can't wait to see what they will show for XIII this time. I hope alot of gameplay video's.

It's not just because of localizing, though. They are making tons of changes to the game, perhaps adding some content etc. So they are improving the game for the western audience, not just translating everything to English.

[QUOTE="AaronSOLDIER, post: 0]When did Reggie say the DS KH game is released? Hopefully, that means BbS isnt too far off either![/quote]
September 29th. BBS is possibly a December 2009/Q1 2010 title, at earliest. Though, if 358/2 Days is of any indication, it'll suffer a couple of 3-6 month delays...

Dissidia looks pretty sweet, I like the whole concept of bringing back all the main characters from the games. If only they would make an RPG out of the same concept.

Cant wait for FF13!!
