I honestly don't understand how you can make the kind of decisions SE have made. I don't. It's like they are purposely trying to fuck their company up. Well, congratufuckinglations!

There have been a hash of recent games in the past years that have proved that having an overtly long development period for a title (and by overt, we're talking near-decades) potentially makes the product suffer and risks being released with sub-par quality and design.

Of course, there's a whole lot of context behind every such failure, but such games have usually failed due to a loss of creative vision on the developer's part and a lack of consistency and focus. The only triple-A title I can think of that didn't come out playing completely like ass was Sleeping Dogs.

Versus probably isn't even plagued by the same problems of publishing and development deadlines since it's an in-house production on Square Enix's part - perhaps that could be part of the problem of why they don't seem to be sufficiently motivated enough to release it anytime soon.

I wouldn't be surprised if we learn that they remade Versus over from scratch at least once in this amount of time. I am having a hard time putting into words my thoughts, but I feel Versus was on the back-burner for a while.

To cite the same example, Sleeping Dogs was picked up by Square Enix a while after Activision dumped it, and afterward there was apparently an almost-immediate overhaul of a large portion of game assets, simply because through the years that the game had spent just pottering about the stuff was looking more and more clunky and outdated.

I'm thinking Square Enix will try and reuse what little of Versus they have now (and to a keen eye when it's released people would probably notice anyway ) but they'll also be overhauling whatever assets they can in order for it to pass off for a next-generation console game - if that truly is their intention.
Of course, if they've been basically doing nothing and fucking around like most of us think they have, then that won't be an issue at all and it's just a matter of the assigned developers getting off their lazy asses.

I feel like they may have had some problems - be it the company's losses or the programming or whatever - I just feel the project has had issues. There, those are the words I was looking for.

Well, they would be in the project, so yeah; but, I just wonder if other things came up too.

I want to frame that quote and put it on my apartment wall <3

Alongside my own quotes of course. Like those where I say that 'the only thing good about Dirge of Cerberus is that I don't have to play it' and that Lost Episode 'deserves to be forgotten'.

It's true though, he never bought the game.

I strum my Earth Harp and pray to Bahamut that we will not be mouthing near identical utterances about Remake, only with the "3" and "4" in "PS" being swapped to "4" and "5"...
