Square Enix arrived to show off Agni once again. On top of that the company teased a surprise announcement for E3.
Spotted on Twitter: "I think Square Enix came today to practice their English."
What a crap announcement.
Exactly... I was super excited when Hashimoto was brought out on stage.... then immediately totally deflated. It's too bad, really.
I seriously feel like that the thread title just kind of explained it all.
"Did Square-Enix show anything cool?"
"Nah, they just kinda showed up and hung out."
Well, to be fair, today is supposed to be about the PS4 more than anything else. They'll announce a couple games we're already eagerly anticipating just to whet our appetites, but the goal here was to allow info. regarding the PS4 to sink in (even if some of it is absent, such as the actual console). I guess Square's showing was just their way of saying "Yeah, we're supporting the PS4".
I'm sure they'll start hitting us with games in the coming weeks, and then they'll blow the lid off at E3.

It better be Versus XIII. I swear to the gaming gods I will rage so hard if it's not Versus XIII.
SE needs to be informed of the English adage, "Put up or shut up."
Suppose I'm not the only one who thought it was silly they showed up to present a previously seen tech demo and then say "Wait for E3 FF news."
"Looks like Teach just got tenure!" - Teach
I bet it is Final Fantasy Lightning Returns Again
I was not impressed or amused by their appearance. I wonder what they will show at E3. FFXIV 3.0. Final Fantasy Versus XIII cancelled and Lightning Returns being their main attraction.
Maybe I'm only bitter because I want Bravely Default.
The only way they can fix this is with the announcement of Versus XIII at E3. IT IS THE ONLY WAY.
Their appearance was downright insulting. They showed us a video we've already seen, and then said they had more news... at E3? I've given Squeenix the benefit of the doubt longer than most, but I'm just about fed up with them. I wish Enix would bail out already before the the Squaresoft side sinks them completely.
Too bad they MERGED. Meaning it's their combined boat, there's not getting out of it. Also, if I recall, Enix did their own fair share of failing after the merger happened.
Is there even an Enix "side" any more? The various studios and talent are so mixed up these days it's hard to tell who is who. From an IP standpoint, Dragon Quest seems to be the last major Enix franchise pulling its weight. Tri-Ace/Crescendo doesn't seem to have as much clout within the Squenix hierarchy as they used to (wasn't that much in the first place), and everything else...gee, is there anything else? If there are some old Enix properties still kicking around, it's gotta be on handhelds because I'm not aware of them.
It's working out great for Eidos though.
I dunno, while I don't obviously have insight into the internals of their business, I can still see the difference between what was clearly made by the Squaresoft side, and what was made by the Enix side. It seems like while they share some resources, the products seem to still have a clear divide. I understand that they "merged", but I don't get the impression that its all intermingled at this point. It still looks like 2 different companies operating under the same name.
