What do you think Emio ("Smiling Man") is?  Best answer gets... naff-all probably.

I'd like this to surprise everyone but with Bloober team apparently at the helm my confidence isn't high.

Bloober get a lot of stick, yet The Medium is pretty good like if that was called Silent Hill: The Medium everyone would love it.

There's been new rumblings around Emio and what it actually is.

From everything I've heard about Bloober Team's handling of mental health issues, I think they deserve all the shit they get

Not heard anything about that, at this rate though who's games left to play? Jimbob's?

I just know people just don't like there games, sure I've played The Medium which as I say is good (still one of the few 9th gen games as well) and go urghh on Silent Hill 2 remake which did look dreadful at the State of Play but then much better at the Transmission, which I don't think many people watched.

So, with this now being a confirmed as a Famicom detective club game I have to ask, is that series anywhere close to being similar to Ace Attorney/Ghost Trick?

I'm very excited about this.  I can't see you being the same Jas.  At the same time though, I don't really know what to expect.

The initial two FDC games were, well, remakes of Famicom games.  They had all the hallmarks of visual novels or detective games of around that time: the interface hindered more than it helped, and it was often quite obscure how you were meant to progress.  At the same time, I ended up liking the second one.  It was a little less obscure in its progression (the original game got an SNES remake so perhaps it had already received some TLC), the soundtrack had a bit of variety and richness to go alongside those lovely visuals, and the characters weren't all bloody awful apart from the eventual villain.  It even had a brief attempt at being a detective game where you tried to figure out what had happened to the victim, rather than a detective game where you tried to figure out what precise command would progress the game.

All of which is to say, I don't know what a truly modern FDC game would look like, and that's exciting!  Presumably it wouldn't be so much of a battle against the interface?  Maybe it'd be more of a detective sim in the vein of, say, Chicken Police?  Or maybe there'd be more of the Ace Attorneys to it?  I can't see it being as good as Ace Attorney, let alone Ghost Trick, but I wouldn't be surprised if it took a turn in that direction.

But... you probably won't like it Jas.  That's my guess.
