Apparently, the developers have stated that if the first game was about the familial love between the two main characters, the second will be about hate.

Last of Us 1 Ending spoilers  SPOILER: Show
Considering that the writers of the original game said that their interpretation of Ellie's final line was that Ellie, on some level, hates Joel for taking away her choice in the end (although it's all up to individual interpretation as well) this could lead to a very interesting exploration of their dynamic and how Ellie feels about Joel's actions at the end of the first game.

Hey, just wanted to let everyone know that Star Ocean 3: Till the End of Time is coming to PS4 via the PS2 on PS4 program!

http://gematsu.com/2017/02/star-ocean-t ... ounced-ps4

While it's not a true remaster, it's the next best thing! PS2 Games ported to PS4 in this manner receive enhancements like 1080p upscaling and trophy support. Going by the price of the other games in this category, it should cost around $15-$20. Instant buy for me. Coming this year, by the way.

Now all I need is for SoulCalibur 3 to get ported to PS4 or remastered, then I can officially retire my aging PS2 for good.
Final Fantasy VII is being remade, all's right with the world.

^OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

Dreams really do come true. If I can get this and Radiata Stories, then I will truly have no need for my old PS2. Radiata Stories seems like way more of a pipe dream though. I adore that game.

Yeah I did some fist-pumping when I saw the article. S-E did state that this is part of their new Ultimate Hits HD series of PS2-on-PS4 games, so there is hope for Radiata Stories as well. You can actually tell Sony what PS2 games you'd like to see on PS4 using Twitter. I created a Twitter account solely for that purpose last year. One of the games I requested was SO3, and now it's actually happening, so you may want to tell them you want Radiata Stories.

Assasins Creed Origins New Trailer is out. No new gameplay, but awesome musi

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdUnh5a2Vx4

Apparently it's not going to be set in Ancient/Biblical Era Egypt, but Inter-testamental period Egypt. Cleopatra and Julius Caesar are going to be characters in the plot, and at least part of it has to center around the burning of the Library of Alexandria.

See, I was kind of hoping that the biblical version would have been there, with Moses' staff being a Piece of Eden capable of parting the Red Sea - and coincidentally the same one chased after in ACII. But the Roman Empire isn't too bad, and I wonder if the Assassins start the fire at the library, or if it was the templars... guess I'll just have to wait and see.

The implication is enough. Look Assassins Creed has had a rough couple of years. They aren't going to risk a potential controversy for the sake of commentary on religion. Making Moses staff and the Ark Of The Covenant, (things which all three of the big religions, mine included, see as holy artifacts blessed by God) really ancient Alien Technology would be a controversy that could potentially kill them when they're already taking a big gamble with the Franchise.

I get why they can't go there, even if it would have been kind of cool (and I'm speaking as Christian with Jewish/German roots). They already walked that line with the whole Pope Alexander VI/Vatican thing, and the mentions of Adam and Eve being Human/First Ones hybrids is already far enough.

And the hard times - after that wonderful bolt of lighting AC4, its hard to follow that up, so hopefully, Origins can match that game in awesomeness, even without the pirate ships being readily available.
