This article started life as an especially more mundane list. One in which I listed my favourite gyms throughout Pokemon History. As I struggled to stay awake under the sheer uninterestingness of what I was writing. I had a vision, or maybe it was a dream. One of Pokemon in an entirely new light.
It got my brain going, and before I knew it, my post looking back at the game’s history was scrapped and replaced by something looking toward to the future.
I didn’t know what to expect going into this one. I had two predictions; one of which was that a significant portions would be taken up by Kingdom Hearts III, the other was that Final Fantasy VII was going to get delayed for another couple years. I was wrong on both counts in the end. They didn’t mention the FF remake at all.
Square Enix’s press conference wasn’t a press conference at all. Instead, they decided to go down the Nintendo route and pre-record the whole thing before peacing out. I was kind of thankful for that to be honest. that meant this whole thing could be reduced down a snappy 30 minutes, and we didn’t have to take up precious seconds on awkward almost-applause. I’m probably showing my hand slightly here, but I’m not a massive fan of Square’s games. But I’m ready to be wrong at any given moment…
