    Free Games Megathread

    This thread is to alert everyone of games listed for free (legally, no pirated downloads here mate) on services like Steam, HumbleBundle, Origin, GOG, etc. So if you notice one is up for grabs, spread the word here while it's still available. Also feel free to share any steam codes / etc. that you don't want / don't have a use for. That being said, Crusader Kings II is currently free on Steam so get it while you can!
  2. List what Anime series you have started watching or currently watching. No need to continue to update each time you watch an episode with the episode number. Announce the series only and move on, when you start another series then come back to say so. Lately I been watching Tokko when it comes on Monday nights on the Sci-fi channel.
  3. Premieres November 12th, 2019 on Disney+ streaming platform with weekly episodes. After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. “The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
  4. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is coming to Steam and GOG on March 23, 2020. https://store.steampowered.com/app/991270/The_Legend_of_Heroes_Trails_of_Cold_Steel_III/
  5. NIS America has announced that they will release The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III for PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe in Fall 2019. Trails of Cold Steel III originally released in Japan in September 2017. NIS America also states that this release will see the return of certain English localization staff that have worked on previous titles in the series. The game supports both English and Japanese voice overs with English and French text options. An English website can be found here. About the game: Nearly a year and a half has passed since the Erebonian civil war, and much has changed since then. From the shifting stances of countries to the internal politics of the Empire, and even the life of Rean Schwarzer, the shadows of the past have given way to the embers of a new chapter. Now graduated from Thors Military Academy, Rean has become an instructor at the Thors Branch Campus, a newly-opened academy that quickly finds itself thrust onto the national stage. It is here that he takes the lead of a brand new Class VII, and must guide a new generation of heroes into an unknown future. Though all is calm now, the nefarious Ouroboros organization continues to weave a dark plot that could engulf the entire continent in war...or perhaps something even more sinister. Trails of Cold Steel III invites players into a world full of intrigue and excitement that is years in the making. They will embark on a whirlwind tour through the never-before-seen lands of the recently expanded Erebonian countryside, and encounter fresh faces as well as old friends familiar to fans of the series. In true Trails fashion, the deep, engaging story pairs with an incredible cast of characters and a combat system refined over decades of innovative RPG worldbuilding. This renowned title has also now been developed natively for PlayStation®4 hardware, a series first. XSEED Games had previously handled the localization and publishing of the series, including the previous two titles in the Cold Steel sub-series. XSEED isn't completely divorced from the franchise yet, however, as they are releasing PlayStation 4 enhanced ports of the first two Cold Steel titles soon in 2019. Announcement Trailer: The localization of the game has been a huge point of controversy since NISA are replacing XSEED as the handlers of the the third Cold Steel game. XSEED are credited to have made the Trails series popular in the west with their excellent work localizing the huge games starting with Trails in the Sky back in 2011. With NISA having made a mess of the localization of the recent Falcom title, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana and its PC port, fans weren’t too keen on them getting the lore and text heavy Trails games. In their PAX South 2019 panel Nippon Ichi Software America addressed these issues and confirmed that they’re bringing back three of the key members of the original localization team from the first two Cold Steel games for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III. Localization of the Trails series was more of a passion project for these people and its great to see them returning. Brittany Avery even commented she never expected to return to work these games again: Thoughts on the news? This certainly gives me some hope that The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III will get a good enough localization effort.
  6. Jimmy McGill’s journey to the dark side now has an endpoint: AMC has renewed Better Call Saul for a sixth and final season, which will consist of 13 episodes (up from the usual 10) and is slated to air in 2021.
  7. Season four of "Better Call Saul" continues on Monday, October 1st at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the 78 minute ninth episode, "Wiedersehen," Jimmy and Kim level with each other, while Nacho makes the rounds with Lalo and Mike has cause to worry. This episode is written by Gennifer Hutchison and directed by Vince Gilligan. Surprised to see no one ever created a topic to discuss this awesome television show.
  8. Near the end of the lifecycle of the original PlayStation, Sony Japan Studio released JRPG The Legend of Dragoon. While it received mixed reviews from critics and currently sits with a 74 Metacritic score, the game has garnered somewhat of a cult following through the years. While there has never been a sequel or another entry in the series, it appears that there could be a remake or remaster currently in the works. While a remaster of The Legend of Dragoon is far from confirmed, recent tweets from a developer at Bluepoint Games, a company known for its remakes and remasters of classic games, appears to open the door to the possibility that the game could see a remake. Technical director Peter Dalton shared a video on Twitter about the Shadow of the Colossus remake developed by Bluepoint Games, to which someone replied and asked Dalton if he liked The Legend of Dragoon. Dalton replied: Dalton's response may very well be an innocent question to garner interest about the 20-year-old JRPG rather than a hint that Bluepoint Games is working on a remaster of The Legend of Dragoon. But that is not stopping fans from speculating and piling on their own praise for the PS1 classic. After his original tweet got all the attention, Dalton acknowledged the passion fans shared for The Legend of Dragoon, tweeting that it is motivating to see: It is not at all unreasonable to think that Bluepoint Games could partner with Sony to remaster The Legend of Dragoon considering that the developer has worked on remaking or remastering some of Sony's biggest games and franchises including Shadow of the Colossus, Ico, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Gravity Rush, Flower, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and The God of War Collection. Bluepoint Games' last release was Shadow of the Colossus for PS4 in 2018 and the developer has yet to reveal what it may be working on currently. Outside of the original game, The Legend of Dragoon has never seen any kind of sequel; however, Dart Feld, the main protagonist from The Legend of Dragoon was originally on the list to become a DLC character for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale but was scrapped early in development for unknown reasons. The thought of a remake or remaster of the game is exciting for its fans, they will have to wait for a more official announcement to see if the JRPG may return three console cycles after its original release.

  9. If you have not yet purchased Grand Theft Auto IV on Steam, we've got some bad news. While the Steam page for the game is still up, you can no longer purchase it. As it turns out, this is due to the game using Games for Windows Live. Despite Microsoft ending support for Games For Windows Live several years ago, Grand Theft Auto IV still somewhat relied on the service. Now, it is no longer possible for new game keys to be distributed, according to Rockstar Games. PR from Rockstar Games stated that "Grand Theft Auto IV was originally created for the Games For Windows Live platform," and that "With Microsoft no longer supporting Games For Windows Live, it is no longer possible to generate the additional keys needed to continue selling the current version of the game. We are looking at other options for distributing GTAIV for PC and will share more information as soon as we can." Before Rockstar confirmed that GFWL was to blame for GTAIV’s disappearance from Steam, there was some fun speculation to be had as to why it has happened. PC Gamer noted that expiring song licensing agreements could have been to blame (they caused a similar problem for Vice City back in 2012), while others guessed that Rockstar could have been preparing to sell the game exclusively through its own launcher. We'll have to wait and see what happens. In the meantime, if you already own Grand Theft Auto IV and have been playing it, you should continue to be able to play it without any issues.
  10. Sucks for me as I was just about to purchase the bundle that had III, IV, Liberty City Stories, Vice City, and San Andreas but now that isn't possible.
  11. I went to the movies and watched Live Free or Die Hard.. Wait erm, I went to the movies since then and watched Rush Hour 3.
  12. Pokémon Sword and Shield are upcoming role-playing video games developed by Game Freak and published by The Pokémon Company and Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. They will be the first main series games in the eighth generation of the Pokémon series. The games are scheduled for a worldwide release on November 15, 2019. Sword and Shield take place in the Galar region, a large, narrow expanse of land, and one of many regions in the Pokémon world. The region itself and its many landmarks appear to be heavily inspired by Great Britain, such as a clocktower and palace which resemble Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, and a hillside monument resembling the Cerne Abbas Giant. Sword and Shield were fully unveiled on a special Nintendo Direct presentation on February 27, 2019, introducing the game's region and starter Pokémon. The starters are: Grookey, the grass-type starter, which is a simian Pokémon; Scorbunny, the fire-type starter, which is a rabbit; and Sobble, the water-type starter, which is a chameleon. The presentation coincided with Pokémon Day, a fan celebration of Pokémon on the anniversary of the Japanese release of Pokémon Red and Green.
  13. Nihon Falcom's JRPG series The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel has found a passionate audience in both Japan and western markets. Focusing on a band of military school cadets, the squad faces off against ever-growing threats across a wartorn land, while slowly building up their skills in combat and forming greater bonds of friendship. While Trails of Cold Steel 3 dropped for PlayStation 4 in the west last October, NIS America has revealed that the series will be making its debut on the Nintendo Switch next year. Coming sometime in Spring 2020, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 will launch on the Nintendo Switch in the U.S. and Europe ahead of the Japan release--which is something of a first for the franchise. Earlier this year, Nihon Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo stated that he hoped to get more games on the Nintendo's portable console following the Switch release of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana. Published by NIS America, a Switch demo for Trails of Cold Steel 3 will also be available shortly around the time of the game's launch. In comparison to its PlayStation 4 counterpart; The Switch version runs at a locked 720p resolution and 30 frames-per-second in both docked and undocked modes. Just like the PS4 release, the Switch version of Trails of Cold Steel 3 will also launch with special editions of the game. With the Extracurricular Edition, you'll get the base game, a 20-page art book, and a reversible cover. Whereas with the Thors Academy Edition, it comes with everything in the previous collection, along with a box set including a steelbook, game soundtrack, postcards, and a Mishy plushie. All versions of the game, including the standard release, will also have all Trails of Cold Steel 3 DLC items packed in as well. Though the west just got the third entry in the series, the final entry--Trails of Cold Steel 4--has been out in Japan for over a year. As of this time, the developers at Falcom are already looking ahead with the Legends of Heroes franchise, teasing a new storyline focusing on another group of characters. Just before the western PS4 release of Trails of Cold Steel 3, Kondo spoke about the JRPG series, and why it takes so long to release the games in the west. "As creators, we would love for everybody to be able to play the game as soon as possible but the reality is, because these [games] are so story focused, we're actually still fiddling with the text up until the very end, and we won't let localization partners work on it until it's complete," said Kondo. "These games are known for their very luminous stories, and it takes a long time to translate. This one, for example, has 2.4 million Japanese characters, and it just takes time."

    Last Animated Movie You Watched?

    Spies in Disguise [2019]. It was actually much better than I expected it to be.

    Hey everyone

    Welcome to Kametsu!
  18. I'm currently working on Final Fantasy XII and Radiata Stories whenever I feel like playing them.
  19. I haven't read the books myself, but talking to those that have suggests season one did in fact cover parts of book 2. Which makes sense considering they announced they were covering all 3 books within two seasons, so next season will adapt everything else and finish it up.
  20. Your mileage may vary when it comes to the 2007 film The Golden Compass. But love it or hate it, fans of His Dark Materials, the Philip Pullman book series it was based on, had to have been disappointed that the underperforming franchise never made it past its first installment. We didn’t even get to Part 2, with Will Parry and his subtle knife! For those thirsty to see the adventures of Lyra, Will, and those armored bears on-screen in a more complete form, rejoice. BBC One has commissioned an eight-part mini-series based on the books, and this time, we hope, Will and Lyra go all the way. Variety reports that former BBC executives Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner will make the His Dark Materials series the flagship effort of their newly formed production company, Bad Wolf. The company has solid ties to the BBC; Tranter and Gardner produced, among other things, the new Doctor Who, which is where the Bad Wolf name comes from. But the new company is also connected to HBO. Tranter told Variety earlier this summer, “The best way of describing it is we are HBO’s people in the U.K. Our task is to ensure that HBO are across anything and everything that they might want to be in terms of writers, directors, actors, and producers, not limited to Bad Wolf, bringing to HBO’s attention the many exciting things that are happening in the U.K.” This is great news for those hoping that His Dark Materials will be the highest quality series it can possibly be. The BBC has already shown it’s capable of a top-notch fantasy adaptation with 2015’s stellar Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, but an association with HBO (and a mention of Game of Thrones as an inspiration for His Dark Materials) means that Tranter and Gardner have an even bigger scope in mind for this eight-episode production. And scope was one of the reasons why The Golden Compass was a disappointment to many back in 2007. The earlier version had some top-notch casting, including the voice of Sir Ian McKellen as the armored bear Iorek Byrnison, Sam Elliott as Texan aeronaut Lee Scoresby, and Eva Green as the witch Serafina Pekkala. The BBC version will be hard-pressed to find anyone more cowboyish than Elliott or witchier than Green. But Pullman’s books are far denser than, say, the Harry Potter series and didn’t fit easily into the limited screen time of a feature film. It’s possible that given more room, the true magic of Pullman’s story will translate to the screen. “In recent years,” Pullman said, addressing just this concern, “we’ve seen how long stories on television, whether adaptations (Game of Thrones) or original (The Sopranos, The Wire), can reach depths of characterization and heights of suspense by taking the time for events to make their proper impact and for consequences to unravel. And the sheer talent now working in the world of long-form television is formidable. For all those reasons I’m delighted at the prospect of a television version of His Dark Materials. I’m especially pleased at the involvement of Jane Tranter, whose experience, imagination, and drive are second to none. As for the BBC, it has no stronger supporter than me. I couldn’t be more pleased with this news.” There’s no confirmation yet whether the first eight episodes will just cover the first book (called Northern Lights in the U.K. and The Golden Compass in the U.S.), with subsequent seasons tackling The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass. But that approach seems likely, given how much growing up Lyra has to do over the course of the story. His Dark Materials has been published in more than 40 languages, and has sold close to 17.5 million copies worldwide. It’s been a radio play and a stage play. Now, finally, Lyra may be getting the on-screen treatment she deserves.
