It totally doesn't. It doesn't seem like you can simply press O to win, it doesn't look like it's going to be the hell on earth and unmanageable like FFXV was and it totally looks like slower paced compared to FFXV. You'll actually be able to see what you're doing.
So, nothing like FFXV, unless you mean to say all ARPGs look the same, yet they doesn't.
Not sure about it seriously. If you watch the UI around 40s, the player spams "Square" to Attack, maybe it's not a gameplay spoof after all.

Still, I'm concerned that we're only seeing the first mission of the game.

Don't get me wrong, I'm eager to know more but I'm afraid it won't be FF7 remastered but more like an action game.

So Sony said 10 minutes in which they showed MH dlc, Away, Predator, Medieval and FF7R and some still call it a waste of time. It's like people never learn.

I never said waste of time. And my itsfuckingnothing comment was more on ff7r trailer. Bombing mission shit again. No new details. Is it still Episodic? Cuz if so I’m very deflated on it.

Nothing of interest for me was shown except the medievil gameplay. But it looked a little rough...so..eh.

Guess Sony and Disney are making the most of their good business relationship, after Spider-Man, with a Predator game coming from Sony's WWS (Disney own 20th Century Fox now remember)

Can we have an Alien game too ?

Not a bad show. FFVII is my favourite game of all time but I've next yo no interest in this remake, and it's troubling that they're still showing footage from the very beginning of the game. Will be interesting to check out in about 2028 when the trilogy is done, I guess.

Elsewhere not a lot which interests me personally, although I'm intrigued by the Predator game. Away looked pretty and interesting too (flying squirrel game).

That Predator game was announced as coming from WWS. Did Sony buy Illfonic or was that just a way of saying PS4 exclusive?
Yeah, I wondered that too. I guess it's a first-party funded game, possibly with one of their studios in an oversight role? A bit like with Spider-Man or Iron Man.

That's probably accurate enough, but I meant to say you won't have to keep O pressed like in FFXV (I hated that) or square to evade, it looks like you'll have to time the blocks. The game looks slower paced than FFXV. I really believe the game will be easy, as they tend to be nowadays.

Fuck forgot this was today, but holy fuck FF7R was actually shown, was so expecting there to be a fuck load of people being disappointed.

Please. The goal post was fine where it was, do not move it, it is in perfect symmetry with the goalpost across the field
I don't make goalposts lmfao, showing one work in progress teaser means nothing to me at all

Having a release window is more meaningful for SE products, you can have as many pretty in progress concepts as much as you like but.im not gullible, I drink water

Mid evil look like a PS3 game, a lot rougher than I thought it would especially when compared to Spyro and crash

I feel like it was a bad choice for them to lead with the best looking game of the stream but it was the biggest known quality I guess so it made sense.

Riverbond looks kinda awesome too though, reminded me a lot of 3D Dot Game Heroes and I'll never get tired of the "every indie game has the most popular indie game characters cameoing in it" trend.

Yeah, true, but they'd be disappointed regardless I'd imagine. For a 10 minute show it was really good, not sure what more you could expect really, considering what they said beforehand.
Eh, I really love Medievil so I was hoping for a better showing from that, personally. Especially given they specifically called it out as a thing they were showing. But what they showed looked early

I can understand that actually, was definitely expecting it to be more than another trailer, but I'm happy it wasn't just it taking up half the show personally.

Yeah, I would have been fine with just the trailer tbh if it just looked better. I'm sure it'll pull together in the end but that trailer was not encouraging.

So fucking naive to even think Sony may allocate 5 more mins specifically for Japan...
As big as MH and FF7, they're not enough to bring new players to ps4.
And for what it is, do this show really is necessary?
I feel like it was made in a hurry just try to make it up to the last one.
There just no purposeful plan or any thoughts in this whole direct thing unlike what Nintendo does.

That was a good one this time in terms of pacing, which was the main issue with their first Direct.
Content wasn't that interesting for the most part, but when you have good pacing, you don't notice it.

You have to understand not Everyone in the world is a FF fan and if they aren’t then there was nothing there exciting for us.
