I went down a weird lore rabbit-hole with FF Tactics, XII, and XIV the other day, and I’m working on a post for that. Unfortunately it’s going to take a little time and I just couldn’t make it happen for today like I had meant to. Suffice to say, there’s a lot more of Tactics and XII built into XIV than I realized. Even as far back as 1.0. As someone who adored and played, for that matter still plays, Tactics, I like it. Unfortunately I’ve never played XII. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll consider picking up on Steam some day when it’s on sale.
In reference to yesterday’s post about Borderlands 3, they did actually announce that. Looks like it’s pretty much the same sort of deal as before, which is a good thing. I’m actually watching it, with sounds this time, as I write.
Their boast regarding “billions of guns” reminds me of the honest game trailer.
“With a gun creation system that can create millions of unique weapons, aaand hundreds that are actually worth using.”
Hopefully they’ll be doing something to make the uniqueness of individual weapons somehow relevant. The ability to mix and match parts would be absolutely wonderful, even in some limited manner. Might undo the very looter shooter nature of the game though.
They also announced an HD remaster of all three of the previous entries in the series, available next Wednesday. Might be a good time to go back and get those 11 achievements I’m missing from the first game, assuming that they carry over, of course, and don’t add a bunch of new ones.
There’s someone noticeably absent from the Borderlands 3 trailers though. Maybe that’s intentional, maybe it isn’t, but I think a it warrants a moment of silence.
