I just played Grid Autostart. It's a PS3 title and it's amazing how much the PS4 has jaded me graphically. Two years ago it would have looked amazing, now it looks like crap compared to what I'm used to now. As for the gameplay, I didn't have enough time to get used to the car. I damaged my tire on the second turn both times and then spun out. :(

Rise of Incarnate is a cool free to play 2v2 fighter on Steam. Producers from the Calibur and Gundam series are working on it. They are eventually targeting the eSports market and competitive gaming. The monetization is for costumes only and not pay to wait or pay to win. The devs went easy on me - my team won every match we played!

Great Question
Aside from localization, what kind of enhancements will Tales of Xillia 2 have over its Japanese release, if any, in terms of controls, interface, etc..? Will it have all of the downloadable content from Tales of Xillia (such as costumes) already included with the release?

ANSWER
Asked your questions in a private demo of the game. Localization is a pretty straightforward localization. Doesn't sound like there's extra content or anything (but there is a collectors edition for U.S. & Canada) However, Costume DLC will crossover!! If you downloaded in Xillia 1 you can use in 2... And it goes the other way too! You can use 2 in 1 as long as the character exists. Original characters are not as much focus in this game, it's mostly about a new character "Ludger" but there are stories as they knew people were attached. There are "chapters" for each original character, complete storylines. Not required for game completion you can choose to do some/none. Apparently not a lot of people asked about costume DLC. Great Question!

Good Question
Will Lords of the Fallen's world be as open as Skyrim/Dragon's Dogma or closer to something like the branching areas set up around a hub as in Dark Souls II?

ANSWER
It's not a giant open world, but the analogy I was given was Zelda. Think that there are rooms and branches, sometimes you might get a key and think: where was that door? And have to find it. Also, there are sometimes more than one way to "defeat" a monster- take them head on or... find a way around them. In my demo time, I found that the narrow passageways are sometimes there to present a challenge... How do you take on a shielded monster in a tiny space?

Good Question
Without mentioning a certain other action RPG, how will the combat play out in Lords of the Fallen? Can you talk about the skill trees and development paths that you can take your character? Can they be a fighter/mage if the player wanted them to try a hybrid class?

ANSWER
Yes you can in a way. At beginning of game you pick spells and gear that define your original class. However you can develop class however you like. You don't level up weapon skills, it's up to you the player to get better and know what gear works best in a scenario.

Unable to Ask
I'm also interested in the lore behind Lords of the Fallen. It's dark, brutal, and reminds me in some ways of the tabletop RPG, Midnight, from years earlier. Will this be a self-contained "one off" title with an epic tale that finishes things off? Or are you hoping to make this into a franchise? It sounds as if the material and the world could potentially expand into many other places.

Ran out of time to ask this- sorry :( however in my experience, game makers rarely want to talk franchise plans, they want to make sure first game is successful

Is this unannounced anime title for next gen Ni no Kuni 2 and if so are there going to be changes made to any aspects of the game such as the battle system or adding co-op play?

Hooray! Thanks for taking the time to ask, skie! Also, interesting to know that Rise of Incarnates is pulling experience from Calibur and Gundam. Curious to see how that turns out.
