Square Enix E3

square enix

Square Enix for me was very underwhelming and uninteresting, I actually shut the damn thing off after about 4 hours on day one. That being said there is plenty to talk about, so lets get started.

First is the PlayStation 4 Final Fantasy Dissidia  NT, a 3 on 3 fighting game using characters from the Final Fantasy series as  whole. At E3 many battles were fought, one of which saw Cloud, Squall and Zidane fight on one team using an assortment of skills and moves that can be switched in and out before battles. While graphically impressive, the battles are about 5 minutes long and seemed rather simplistic and not in a good way.

This next one leaves much to be desired for me as i see it as one of the Worst numbered games in the series, Final Fantasy 12 The Zodiac Age. And yes that name is long as hell , for me the characters were always bland and Vaan may be the worst hero in Final Fantasy history, and from what I have seen and read they haven’t done much to change that.

Next up, Final Fantasy 14 Stormblood. now i have to say i know nothing about the game or any of its add-ons. That being said it looks nice and it does exist. Another game I don’t know much about beyond it seems like a Final Fantasy 15 inspired fishing game is titles Monsters Of The Deep: Final Fantasy 15.

Last but not least is the much anticipated Life is Strange: Before The Storm. Aside from being Episodic and free this month on playstation plus and sitting on my harddrive waiting to be played i do not know much about this one either aside from it is coming. I know horrible research, but really i’m using this to really accentuate the fact that Square Enix was in my humble opinion the absolute worst part of an otherwise solid E3 this year. Maybe if we get some info on the Final Fantasy 7 remake or They announce some sort of 30th anniversary collection for Final Fantasy you are better off just reading a quick recap. With that being said, thanks for joining me and as always, may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Far Cry 5

7mKjKAh7E4gcwa3GpQv9MZ-320-80  Once again a Far Cry game seems to have some controversy surrounding it. Far Cry 3 pissed a lot of people off simply because it was a rich white guy in a seemingly African nation shooting black people playing hero. Which hey i understand the sentiment but its a video game. Chill. Far Cry 5 takes place in America, North Montana to be more specific.

The general plot as we know so far is a bat shit crazy Christian cult is basically murdering people and forcibly converting people. For the first time you play a created character that must save the day. Seems like pretty standard game stuff. Good people fight bad people and away we go.

Now here is where the controversy comes in. Many people are now claiming its an attack an Christianity and making white people look evil and some are asking where all the black and Hispanic people are. Well if you care to look up census data and read through it (it sucks) you will see that about 90% of North Montana is white people. Just like when it was pretty much all black people in a nation modeled after Africa. Its called building a believable world.

The biggest flaw to the claim this game is attacking white people and Christians is i personally don’t know any Christians that behave that way. I will even go further and say i don’t know any Americans that act that way, not personally at least tho I’m sure a few exist. At the and of the day if you see this game as an attack on you and your race or religion the problem is not the game, the problem is with you. People in society shouldn’t act the way the people in this game do and the only reason to be offended is either you do behave this way or you want to behave this way, and that is simply wrong either way.

At the end of the day the gaming gods love us all, and we should endeavor to love each other or at least not be a pain in the ass. So as always, thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
