That previous Nintendo E3 list is most indeed fake. It lists Hyrule Warriors release date as June 27, 2014. But, Famitsu has reported that Hyrule Warriors release date for Japan is going to be August 14th, 2014.

Taken from a news article on GBAtemp of an interview regarding SoulCalibur Lost Swords

Quote:
Q: Can you tell us a little bit about Lost Swords?

Masaaki Hoshino, Producer: So SoulCalibur: Lost Swords will be the first in the franchise to be a free-to-play model. Unlike previous installments of the franchise, this time around, we’re looking at a single-player experience where it’s built around customization and really molding the character to fit your play style.

Q: Why was it decided that Lost Swords would be singleplayer only?

The reason that we went singleplayer…well, originally, we were thinking about having a multiplayer option, but because we’re going with a pay-to-win model, we were worried that by having online multiplayer, for all the new users that would be coming in experiencing the game for the first time, they might be immediately deterred by fighting against opponents who had superior equipment and gear—and we didn’t want to have that kind of negative impact on new players.
I...wow. I've never seen a company be so out front about being pay-to-win. The concept actually seemed pretty interesting until then, what with molding a character to your playstyle, but...wow. Guess I'll just wait for SCVI, then.

I'm not terribly into the idea either. But what I really don't get about the excerpt is that it says:

Quote:

and then says:

Before getting a credit card, I never understood that model, but now I'm actually looking for the in-game stores XD It's probably not the fairest model out there, but I only look for them for beautiful looking armour :3

I'm that way with Soul Calibur, and I really don't like it. I've never been a fan of the idea of paying high prices for DLC, especially when it deals with things that appetize me, such as customization options and the like (and Bamco really exploits this, knowing that SC's character creation is as good as it is). But the problem here is that it's not only F2P2W, but there's no multiplayer because it's F2P2W.

...Well, it's a problem that it's F2P2W to begin with, really.

From a marketing perspective, probably not the best choice of terminology XD It turns off consumers because "lose" has a negative connotation.

Hm… I don't think I've ever played StarCraft, unfortunately. :( I did watch some gameplay videos of it before, and they seemed pretty interesting. Might have to give this series a go at some point.

I think they meant Soul Calibur with SC, not StarCraft xD

Seeing the topic going from Soul Calibur to StarCraft... That confusion can happen :P

It quite takes up a lot of space tbh. Around 17GB (even more when you install extra languages) and if you have a terrible download speed you are gonna have a bad time installing it :x

Oh, whoops. Should have payed more attention, haha. Anyway, my laptop's doesn't have that much space available, and it's not too huge in RAM, either, so I'm not sure if I'll even be able to run it. :( Sometimes, it even has problems running GBA emulators.

It depends... If you have at least 4GB of RAM and a good graphics card and a dual core processor (though a quad core is advised) you can run it pretty well.

So I played Watch_Dogs, and it's interesting. Not $60 fun, though, I'd say it's probably worth it for $30.

Hm, by the looks of it, that's probably true \: The concept still seems interesting to me though, so I'll satisfy myself with watching streams for now.

Yeah, the concept's the best thing about it, but when you're not on missions, there's not really much to do except a few sidequest types and some minigames. Of course, you can make fun, but the real fun, as far as I am, is in the missions, because you can really exhaust the fun of Chicago by just doing whatever. Missions like car chases and firefights are there, but I've found that the game is most fun when you're doing things like stealth missions or, in the case of firefights, when you use cameras and the environment to take out enemies. Not too mention that Chicago is beautiful in Watch_Dogs.

But, again, I can't really say that that's enough to warrant a $60 purchase out of it unless you're easily entertained. It's a fun game, just not one that you'll feel so good buying at full price, and you might end up kicking yourself over it afterwards.

From how I understand it: The concept was amazing, execution was not.

To make matters worse, this following video shows off the gltiches and bugs found in Watch Dogs:



Let's not forget how this game shoves memes down our throats rather than creating their own meme-material moments. Well I was right about keeping low expectations on this game because of the negative backlash it'll receive from user reviews.
