Geez, it’s not like he’s been at it since his very first day here, years ago. He brings it up every other day, FFS!

So what? Nothing wrong with being passionate about something you care about. 

You could always ignore the topics that annoy you, that's something I do.

Do that for my comments as well then, not just topics.

No

The worst RPG series from Squareenix history is better than LoD

Yep, that is right, EVO Search For Eden is better than LoD.

Geez, what a mean spirited comment. At least the other people saying "Nope, good talk" are less condescending.

Honestly I'm not sure what the Square purchase would mean for a LoD remake/reboot but I'd say that stranger things have happened. Crash, Shenmue, Mega Man and Valkyrie Profile were allowed  dead franchises until the people in charge gave them a chance.

Geez, it’s not like he’s been at it since his very first day here, years ago. He brings it up every other day, FFS!

LOL, I'm living rent free in your head it seems, what a sorry person you are man, losing your shit when I basically don't even come to the site anymore, or even pay attention to you.

Grow up or just fuck off, or both, preferably.

Someone woke up hating life 😆

OP no LOD but we will get a ff6 and a chrono trigger remake like we got with ff7.

Such a sad guy...

Anyway, any one of those two would be massive, as CT as FF6 as still their favorite square games to a lot ot fans.

Why make LoD when you can make FF, CC, etc?

Because LoD is better than all of those combined?

Anyway, they don't need to do one of the other, they could release FF16, then LoD, then FF17 online, an so on. With Sony's backing they certainly can do it.

You think you need to live in anyone’s head for people to notice how much you’re obsessed with that game, and barely ever talk about anything else? Get over your obsession driven self for a minute.

Surely, you choose to act like a meme and all of this is intentional. Otherwise, YOU have issues to sort out before telling anyone else to grow up. You’ve been stuck in 2001 forever now.

I'd rather have Bluepoint work on a LOD remake than Square.

Their last remakes were phenomenal, and one of the directors there said he would love LoD to be a project before Sony bought the studio, but LoD is massive, really, it would take several times the effort of remaking Demon's Souls and I just dunno if Bluepoint is capable of it, even as yes, I would love to see them try!

Wasn’t there a persistent rumor about Bluepoint having a second project besides Demon’s Souls, which purportedly was a Legend of Dragoon remake? Bluepoint themselves teased two projects on Twitter, with hints from various franchises including Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania, among the aforementioned two. But that was months or a couple of years before the Demon’s Souls announcement. After the acquisition, Bluepoint has a desire to make original content, so things may have changed.

But let’s say that Sony acquires Square Enix. Would one of SE’s teams work on a Sony IP, like Legend of Dragoon? I’m not well acquainted with SE’s internal divisions or studios, but it’s safe to say that SE wouldn’t care much to resurrect a two-decades old franchise of Sony’s when they themselves have a multitude of IPs which haven’t been utilized in years as well. And seeing how much invested into Final Fantasy they are, it’s very unlikely to let another JRPG breathe besides their favorite child.

Unless Sony has any plans to somehow turn LoD into a live-service or gacha game, the title will stay into obscurity among the general public. Admittedly, I’ve never played LoD so it could be possible to expand its world and keep it alive for several years would it be successful. Sony has founded ForwardWorks which works on mobile games based on Sony’s dead franchises, but its main focus is catering to their Japanese audience and SIE hasn’t really emphasized on that front for now, despite enormous success from Aniplex and Fate Grand Order which is also owned by Sony. In general, if Sony felt like keeping LoD relevant, they would have made a new entry for years now.

The only safe future I can consider is adding the original game on the new PS+

Bluepoint was indeed working on 2 games, and LoD was in fact one of the teased ones back then (both with Dart and Black Monster on that cript halloween tweet, if I recall it well), but it was never really pointed by any leak that it was LoD, just teased with a lot of other possible games, as you mentioned.

Actually, the chance of Sony wanting to make another LoD is next to none, if not zero, as they have always fully ignored it.

But now owning studios that have lots of talent and experience on developing JRPGs again, that would certainly be easier.

Smelly bird would you not buy a LoD remake if it was available on steam?

1999.

Anyway, if it was not obvious enough, read even just the poll options and think about it another time, actually, if you pay so much attention to me to be this bothered, that should be plain obvious for years now.

I truly love the game, and I love to talk about it, and my question was real on this thread, but what I do 95% of my time here has been pretty obvious, hence the joke-ish air of any and every poll I've ever done on this site.

But, letting the obvious explanation everybody else here but you doesn't need, as I said before to that pathetic overreaction of yours, just fuck off.

You have a problem with it? Ignore it, report it, scream on your pillow for all I care, but just fuck off.
