DLC = Damn Late Content

I think they've already got it worked out.  Have you not played Skyrim?

Five Fixes For Final Fantasy

Yeah, bring back the fantasy.  The characters and costumes Tetsuya Nomura is designing is not fantasy anymore, becaue that's what all the kids in Japan look like in their free time.  It may take some courage to finally try something new, but in Japan a better example of true fantasy that doesn't look anything like real life is From Software's Souls series.  British accents and Friar Tuck bowl haircuts.  Now that's fantasy!

Too quickly?

HD Was a Practice Generation

Nice to see some knowledgeable people on here with decent answers to questions and posting thoughtful comments.  All I get on Attack of the Fanboy is, "cause PS3 sux muthafukkah!"

The Game of Thrones game, for that reason alone we can say Atlus skipped a generation.

Also, did you play the Japanese version of Catherine?  I did.  It wasn't fun.

"Most developers agreed that the PS3 was a nightmare to program for."

I challenge this statement.  It often seems to be common knowledge or a common theme or excuse on which to blame all the problems of the first HD generation, especially PS3's.  But how?  And why?  I have yet to see any quotes from developers on how PS3 was more difficult to program for than Xbox 360.

I don't doubt its truthiness, just need some examples and evidence.

And poor Atlus.  They published From Software's Demon's Souls in North America, but passed on Dark Souls.  We can pretty much say they skipped a generation for that reason alone.

I always wondered how and why budgets got so much bigger.  Bethesda figured out that they didn't need famous and expensive actors, like Patrick Stewart, voicing all their characters.  They went a different direction with Skyrim, and seemingly used the same voice actor with the same accent for all characters, but the idea was sound.  Just hire talent, not names. BioWare got it right with Mass Effect.  Has anyone ever heard of Mark Meer?  Hardly, he was an improv comic and career voice actor.  And the voice of Commander Shepard!

We need AAA ideas, not AAA budgets!

Rage Quit - Bloated Budgets

I never played Dead Space or Dead Space 2, and I was barely aware there was a Dead Space 3 until now.  But I'm mad as hell that Dead Space 4 has been cancelled and I'm not going to take it anymore!  Actually I am. 

What I'm really mad about is developers like 38 Studios having to close their doors, somehow publishers are shifting all the risk to the studios and not facing the consequences for their ineptitude.  There's only a few big publishers left like EA and Activision, maybe there is some collusion or anti-trust violations going on.

I've always maintained that this last generation, PS3 and Xbox 360, was a practice generation, an introduction to the HD era.  Most of the Japanese developers saw the problems early on and didn't even join in and started making all their games for handhelds.  Hello, Atlus, and your Shin Megami Tensei games for 3DS and PSP!  The next generation will be better.  If everyone joins.

When is enough, enough?

the DLC is worth it.  I mean Dawngaurd and Dragonborn, Hearthfire not so much.  The two main expansions really add a lot to the game, especially Dragonborn.  It's in an all new area that's really dense and packed together quite well, no more running long stretches clear across the acrtic tundra while only picking up a snowberry or two!  Dragonborn really feels like a DLC for players that have already plunked down 70-80 game hours into Skyrim.  There's even a quest for minimum level 38 characters, hunting the Deathbrand armor!  I enjoyed it.
