    For anyone who’s interested, this is the latest trailer for Chris Lilley’s new show (which will be starting in four days). Just a heads up for those who don’t know, Chris Lilley is an absolutely hysterical Aussie comedian. Check it out!

    Well In PS02 JP we are getting new darker den’s missions. You know in JP F2P MMOs get updated frequently and they release them with a concrete plan. Issues do arise but are fixed quickly and the player base receive compensation in the form of boosters or other items.

    PSO2 is a type of Freemium where the game is free to download and play but restrict your experience a bit but SEGA at least let you win tickets at the lottery who give some of these features for a limited time. There’s a little P2W in the form of premium packages that gives you starter weapons that are stronger than the initial weapons in a significant way but they get obsolete really quickly and most people opt for selling them.

    Now about KHIII with the pic on this thread, It’s to early to pass judgement and those scenes may be scrapped as it seems that Nomura was doing a benchmark on the next consoles.

    Oh a side note, my PS3 have a good library of games at this point so I may not join Next Gen anytime soon.

    • PrinceHeir

      we’re the same :D

      i already have an amazing PS3 backlog, and not even counting the DD games, PS1, PS2, PSP, PS Vita, Nintendo Gamecube, Wii, 3DS, and VC games.

      i don’t even have a Wii U, guess i’ll wait on this maybe a year or two for now ^^

    • EX+

      I’m going to get a PS4 whenever FFXV comes out. There are still loads of JRPGs that I want on the PS3. I love the PS4, but I’m a very patient person when it comes to these things, just like you.

      • DarkLegacy

        I pre-ordered a PS4 and KH3 a few months ago and I have to buy it at launch and I might buy Knack on PS4 and that will just help me wait until FFXV comes out next year

      Y.

  • Zancrow

    Just wanted to ask: Is Kingdom Hearts 3D playable without the Circle Pad or is it something you really need?

    • MrFinalgamer

      the game is far from unplyable, but it does have the sam camera issues that Birth By Sleep had, but if you got used to the camera on BBS you’ll feel right at home with KH3D

    • Elvick

      Meh, it’s fine.

      Only real issue I have is accidentally using the team attacks, whatever they’re called, when I’m just trying to use the camera. (L+R+facebuttons activates them)

      Sucks when I’m almost at a boss and it happens.

      But the camera is fine enough, no different that as mentioned BBS and the original KH.

      • TheExile285

        Same

      • Budgiecat

        My problem is I’m completely lost in that game…still on Tron level and Traverse Town…boring as hell

      • Zancrow

        Ah, alright. Then I have no real problem with it.
        How is it, anyway? As good as the KH games for consoles or does it feel as limited as BBS felt (at least to me)?

        • Elvick

          Not sure what you mean by limited as BBS.

          But DDD is fantastic.

          • Zancrow

            Well, I felt the worlds were very little in BBS, made even worse by the fact that you are playing 3 characters who can access certain areas.
            But fantastic sounds good. xD

            • Elvick

              Oh well, the worlds are pretty large. Some larger than others. They even added new areas to Traverse Town! :D

              Plus moving around has never been more fun than with flowmotion.

              • Zancrow

                Sounds even better!^^
                Yeah, I’m gonna buy that, eventually.
                KH3 isn’t coming out anytime soon, anyway. xD

    • TheExile285

      Yep, very playable without CP

    God Eater 2 Gameplay Trailer

    http://youtu.be/BHHZ2iKfh1E

    So, im pretty sure everyone saw Sonic Lost World reviews right? It had diverse scores (bad ones in main sites). Sometimes i dont know what they want Sega to do to sonic, i just hope the next sonic game is like Generations. That formula worked perfectly for me, lost world is still a good job in my opinion (maybe its because im a fan, heh)

    • TheExile285

      GE2 looks so good~

      • Budgiecat

        They should make PS3 versions.

        Oh well….I guess hurry up with the PSVita TV….

    • Elvick

      People will never be happy with Sonic, and by that I mean trolls. He’s an easy target. And most people won’t call them on it either. It’s easy to get people to agree.

      Even if he has great games like Colors and Generations, they’re passed over and no one is “surprised” that a “dead series” with “crappy games” gets another “crappy” one. *eye roll*

      I’m sure Lost World is way better than Secret Rings, and despite the horrible and frustrating controls, I still had a little bit of fun with that one. So meh.

      I’ll get it when I get a Wii U. By that time it’ll probably be around $20-$30 too.

      And LW is also trying something very different for Sonic, so there’s that too.

    • McPoo

      It doesn’t surprise me really. Most Sonic games are crap, occasionally venturing into playable (IMO!)

      I just think the formula itself is so dated to begin with, and Sega aren’t able to bring it into the 21st century effectively, like Nintendo have managed to do with Mario.

      It’s just a series I’ve not found enjoyable since I was about 6.

  • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

    This week’s been pretty awesome for me! :D

    http://www.theblackfriday.com/gamestop-blackfriday.shtml

    • Budgiecat

      Xillia & KH 1.5 ftw

      I’ll wait for DW8 for PS4….same with AC IV

      • futuristic_imagination

        I know:) I was going to get 1.5 today for $30 until i saw the ad and I just had to force myself to not buy it.

        I just hope that my wallet doesn’t kill me after Black Friday. :p

  • Tac-Mex

    What do you think about PS4 price in Brazil?

    I am Mexican and i got it for 393 USD

    I feel kinda bad for South Americans :/

    • futuristic_imagination

      How high is the price in Brazil? (I haven’t been keeping up with news for a while.)

      Edit: Did some research… Holy crap thats a lot. Why is it so high? Taxes?

      • DesmaX

        Because Sony Brazil is shit

    • Yuri Meitzen

      i’ll be importing so… i actually don’t care… but it was a bad move from sony. it sounds like “Buy a XBOX one”

      ps:
      ps4 = 1800 USD
      Xbone = 1000USD

      • Tac-Mex

        But even if you import it, it is still expensive, isn’t it?

        • Yuri Meitzen

          nope… here it’ll cost 4000R$, if i import it’ll be around 1800R$, maybe a little more…

          edit: i mean if it’s taxed otherwise it would be around 900~1000

          • Tac-Mex

            I’m sorry BRo, i don’t know why you must pay a lot of taxes :/

            • Yuri Meitzen

              Me neither =P but as i said i’m importing so… i’m not worrying too much about it, also i won’t buy it at launch so… no problem =).

      • AdamBoy64

        Wow. That’s ridiculous.

        • Yuri Meitzen

          i know… and… when you look at it, who would buy a ps4 when the xbox one plays(almost) the same games, and cost half the price? i think sony just gave brazil consumers to M$.

    • DesmaX

      Oh, I just want to see everyone pissed off at sony stand at BGS.

      Completely ridiculous, makes me want not buy a PS4 at all

    • Elvick

      I haven’t found any legitimate articles about it detailing possible explanations. So I don’t have an opinion. All I ever see is just the same information I see people bitching about on the PS channel on YouTube. So it has no substance.

      Was MS able to get tax breaks and Sony not able to? That kind of thing.

      Somehow I don’t buy that they’d just overprice the system just because. It makes no business sense to do that. So there’s got to be more to it than just the baseline price.

      But not many people care about WHY the price is what it is. They’re just mad at the price and that’s enough.

    • Arcana Gear

      It makes me want dont buy a ps4, but cause i love the games (jrpgs mostly) that are exclusive to it, and the devs dont have any fault, i’ll import it and in the end it will be 1/4 of the price.

      But sony has lost a fan, cause the high price isnt only taxes, it’s cause sony put the base price absurdly high, plus with 70% taxes plus some things that put a little more on the final product.

      But sony is always this way on Brazil, here the ps2 market is still strong, and in the ps2 era the ps1 was strong, so it seems that sony will try to invest in the ps3 now here….. And here the current gen piracy is high, cause of the high prices, then sony put the prices more higher to compensate, then the piracy gets higher…. and it’s a cycle. So it seems that they are dropping the ball.

  • bloodiOS

    These have gotta be the most ridiculous 30 minutes I have spent in my entire life! People, if you haven’t watched this, watch it now!

    Here’s a sample (um… NSFW… maybe…):

    http://www.gifti.me/i/oytfTm.gif

  • TheExile285

    So whose buying a next-gen home console by the end of the year?

    • Invisbin

      Ps4 at launch, Xbox One in the spring!

    • Arcana Gear

      …… I’m lpanning to buy a wii u by the end of the next year, and a portable at the beggining.
      And i still couldnt decide if it will be a vita or a 3ds.

    • Elvick

      PS4 at launch, Wii U next year. :3

      • Wolf Star

        PS4 day one :D
        Wii U- it depends what kind of games they want to offer.. So far “meh”

    • https://twitter.com/Panda_castro Panda

      PS4 by the end of the year, Wii U next year, and undecided about Xbox one.

    • Azuardo

      Likely will keep my PS4 pre-order and then get a cheap Wii U next year.

    • MrRobbyM

      If I get this job which I have an interview for tomorrow morning, I’ll own one as soon as the priorities are out of the way :)

      Like others seem to be doing, I’ll get a PS4 first and a Wii U next year. Maybe a Vita before that.

      • TheExile285

        Good luck!

        • MrRobbyM

          thank you :) I’ve been too long without a job, I’ll need it.

      • Charlottes Guardian

        Good luck with the job! :D

        • MrRobbyM

          thanks! :)

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Hope you get the job!

        • MrRobbyM

          Thanks! I’m feelin good about this one :)

    • LordKaiser

      Not me as I’m still fine with my current gen library.

    • Gigus

      Besides being poor, not me. I still have a huge backlog to take care of on my ps3. I have at least 20 games to finish not including the upcoming games coming out this year.

    • MrFinalgamer

      gonna get a PS4 by december. i really want to test the cross play with the vita though.

    • jujubee88

      PS4 remote-play to the VITA makes me weep. Every time.

      I really really want it, guys. NAO! :O

    • AdamBoy64

      For next-gen at the moment, I have a Wii U which I’m enjoying.
      For the other systems, I’ve got quite a few games on the PS3 to play through. Could be a couple of years before I finish those.

      I’d certainly consider a PS4 in the future. Not in the next 6 months though.

  • Invisbin

    With the awesome news about KH3, does anyone think they’ll keep us informed from time to time? Or will they treat it as FFXV?

    • Arcana Gear

      I dont think they can keep us informed so away from the release date, so i think when the development be more advanced, and be like one year form release they will begin to flood more informations. Hoping that nomura dont go into another versusXIII/XV on KHIII.

      • Invisbin

        I personally think it’s taken so long because they want to revive Final Fantasy. I don’t think KH3 will suffer because it usually takes a short time for KH games to release. Here’s hoping for an international release.

        • Budgiecat

          I hope they don’t pull that “Final Mix” Japan only bullshit again….

          • Invisbin

            I’d be happy either way.

          • DarkLegacy

            Kingdom Hearts III Final Mix. I doubt they’ll make one but they should do where it comes over to our country

          • bloodiOS

            There is no “Final Mix” in the age of online patches and DLC.

        • Wolf Star

          KH 1.5- 2013
          KH 2.5- 2014
          KH3-2015
          There…. FF XV- 2014, it’s getting close to being finished.

          • Arcana Gear

            i dont think it will be so early, i mean even nomura on the interview said that KH3 was in early development, and that trailer was just to confirm the game, we must remember SE habit of launching trailers of real early development stages, my guesse is 2015 FXV, 2016 KH3

            • Wolf Star

              Hmm true KH3 is in early development and so far by real eating the early gameplay trailer they really mean it. Also for FF XV, I think the realae date would be 2014 cause it’s getting close being done, it’s farther ahead in development and is stuck in a 7 year development hell.

              • Azuardo

                FFXV won’t be released in 2014. 2015 at the earliest.

                • Wolf Star

                  We will see.. maybe 2015?? Who knows.

            • Azuardo

              Pretty much this.

    • Elvick

      Depends on what ‘awesome news’ means.

      I think that teaser was ‘awesome news’. So I’d be fine with a few of those every now and then for awhile. Until they can actually provide us with substantial information.

    • EX+

      They’re going to give us a lot of FFXV info. Especially next year after LR releases. Don’t quote me on this, but I heard from a youtuber that the FFXV release date announcement is expected to be before the end of SE’s fiscal year.

      • DarkLegacy

        But I heard from somewhere that FFXV was out next year in March

  • PrinceHeir
    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Yeah, I already called this a while back since I saw the anime was re-airing, which is usually a good sign that a new season is coming (probably around March or so since that’s about the time part 2 will be finished). Not only that, but there was a ‘TO BE CONTINUED’ message on the final volume of the BD too.

      • Budgiecat

        duh everyone knew that

    • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

      HELL YES! I LOVE THE JOJO SERIES!!! :D

  • PrinceHeir

    timeline write up of Phoenix Wright series from Japanator :D

    man i freaking love this franchise!

  • Charlottes Guardian

    Okay, so that double episode of Legend of Korra tonight was probably some of my favorite episodes of Avatar ever! I mean…wow! It was just awesome, Wan is one of my favorite characters in the avatar universe, and hes only in 2 episodes. It was just so good, I loved every freaking thing about it.

  • bldudas

    I really am enjoying Pokemon X, which is my first Pokemon game.

    But I went to play my PS2,and the controller won’t work. :(
    My 360 controller died, but I don’t mind that, I just want to play my new used PS2.

    I am also enjoying Grand Theft Auto V and Disgaea D2.

    • Budgiecat

      I’m playing Beyond: Two Souls

      • Zackasaur

        Nice choice, Budgie.

      • bldudas

        I want that game.

  • GhostNomad

    Okay so I’m attempting to use a DS3 controller on my PC, and I’m encountering issues. I’ve connected it via USB and installed the drivers, but when I use MotioninJoy/Better DS3 Tool, neither detects the controller. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Before anyone mentions it, I’m aware that there are 360 wired controllers which are easy to use, and there are adapters that make 360 wireless controllers usable. I specifically wish to use my DS3 because it’s far more comfortable in my hands, so that’s why I’m not using a 360 controller.

    If worse comes to worst, I can just return the bluetooth dongle in the morning and pay $5 extra for a Logitech gamepad then call it a day :P

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      This is what I used a while back. http://betterds3.ciebiera.net/

      It really worked good for me once I got everything set up.

      • GhostNomad

        Alright, I figured out my mistake. I wasn’t installing the MotioninJoy drivers. Controller’s detecting input, and now to test it out on some games!

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          That link i listed above is pretty nice with some of the settings. You can set it to mimic the 360 pad, so all PC games with controller support just read it as the 360 pad and simply work.

        • LordKaiser

          DON’T INSTALL THAT CRAP!!!

          Get the XInput wrapper found on the PCSX2 website instead.

          Motioninjoy acts as a malware and it’s a pain to uninstall. It opens a website called http://www.sh.com

          *Edit*

          nvm you already did….

          • GhostNomad

            I figured that out shortly after getting it to work and ended up scrubbing my computer of any MiJ traces, but thanks for the heads up regardless :D

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              It works fine if you use that website above. You only need the drivers and don’t have to use the awful motion joy program.

    • Elvick

      The hassle is a large reason I like using my mac more than PC.

      It’s easy to setup my DS3 via bluetooth on my Mac and it works just fine. PC is such a hassle with the DS3.

      From the sounds of it, DS4 seems more PC friendly though. So I’m glad Sony noticed the problems with DS3 (on PC).

    • LordKaiser

      http://emulation-general.wikia.com/wiki/MotioninJoy

      There it shows how to uninstall motioninjoy. You may have trouble deleting some keys at the registry. Good luck!

  • bloodiOS

    It’s really BS for something to be listed as “coming soon” after so many years.

    • Elvick

      datvaporware

    • Wolf Star

      I forgot about this game since they announced it. At least other games that almost went vapor ware is still talked about like FF Versus 13 Aka 15 and little bit of the last gaurdian. Kind of. I guess Agent might be a PS4 game now.

    • Anime10121

      Well FFVsXIII has been “coming soon” for a MUCH longer period :P

      • bloodiOS

        Versus was slightly different, because its BS level is of epic proportion. We kept seeing hype without seeing the game materializes. Thankfully the worst is finally over.

        • Anime10121

          Or is it… DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

    • Budgiecat

      It’s a secret……Agent, man…

    • Robbyfishersora

      I bet it going to be on X1.

      • bloodiOS

        Multiplatform is the most likely scenario. Truly though, anything (other than being XBO exclusive) is better than it secretly being canned.

        • Robbyfishersora

          Yep just how KH3 going to X1. hey it make them more money.

          • bloodiOS

            And it’s only logical, unlike previous generations, it’s much easier to port game across consoles now. You don’t need any lead platform crap, just scale assets proportionately from PC to the targeting systems, and trim things down according the corresponding specs.

            • Robbyfishersora

              At this time were seeing less 3rd party exclusives just like last gen.

              • bloodiOS

                And given the nature of these new consoles, it will keep on being that way.

    For those of you who have a fair amount of digital games on Vita or PSP, what size memory card do you use? Is memory really that much of a concern if you happen to like buying digital? Most of the games I’d like to buy off of PSN are either PSOne Classics, smaller games or digital-exclusive, with a few exceptions; otherwise I’d rather buy physical. With that in mind, how do you Sony handheld owners approach memory, given that it’s expensive to buy in higher quantities? If you have a Vita, would you just get the largest memory card you possibly can? If you have a PSP, are you satisfied with less than 8GB of memory, or do you recommend having 16 or 32GB?

      I never went past 32GB on the PSP since I mostly bought physical copies (many of those have huge optional data installation though) but I do believe my friend have one of the those 128GB ones:

      http://www.amazon.com/128GB-Memory-Stick-SONY-T500/dp/B00BUA75ZW

      As for the Vita, even though I haven’t bought one yet, there actually is a report on Eurogamer showing that the “bigger” the memory card, the more consistent it performs, which also means that the “smaller” models are more likely to experience “hiccups”. So, personally, I would see myself getting at least the 32GB model when I finally get a Vita:

        Oh, that reminds me, as an aside, how often did you (or anyone else) use data installs? I own Peace Walker, PSP2, and P3P… all with data installed. Does it make a significant difference, or do you think you could go without having data installed on the stick and still generally get roughly the same game experience?

        • bloodiOS

          There are rare exceptions but most of the time, they do make a big difference to me. It’s also vital to games like Birth By Sleep, where choosing to install the data does drop a significant amount of loading times.

        • MrFinalgamer

          depends on the game. birth by sleep is almost unplayable without data install (takes like 30 sec just to enter another room!) other games just make stuff a tad bit quicker
          with Peace Walker though, it’s kinda needed you do the install since it adds alot of stuff like extra sound effects, much better loading times, and extra voice acting and alot of stuff that the game does tell you that i can’t remember

    • Elvick

      I buy physical. (including importing to get it from Europe in English, like New Little King’s Story.. or Asia with Dokuro!)

      I use a 4GB, but with games like Killzone, even though I have it physically the patch kills my memory. And the new patch will need me to free up even more just to replace the current 1GB and change there. D:

      I think I could manage with a 8GB a lot better. I buy a ton of digital games (indies and such). LBP Vita takes a lot in patches as well. Soul Sacrifice too. Escape Plan’s patches are hefty too and that’s a digital game too. Plus sizable DLC.

      4GB is definitely no where near enough. Personally, I just want to get a 32GB so I don’t have to worry that much about it, but the damn price. D:<

    • MrFinalgamer

      if you’re just going to get PSOne games, and a couple of others, just get a 16gb. it’s a nice sweet spot and you won’t have to manage your stuff just to download a demo. plus most games aren’t THAT big (biggest being like 3gb, unless you count updates, then killzone is the biggest with 4gb). so yeah, all in all just get a 16 gb, it’s $40, so it’s not too bad

    • futuristic_imagination

      PSP: 8 GB
      Vita: 4 GB

      Memory is not an issue for me at the moment. I mostly buy physical version whenever possible. I also got a lot of digital games, but I don’t like to install all the games in my card. I like to work through it one game at a time. Unlike the Psp’s case, some games needed to be installed if you had the physical copy to reduce loading times and other features. For the vita, I don’t think I will upgrade, unless there is a digital only vita game that is bigger than 4 gigs in the future.

    • kurosan9712

      Vita – 8GB, but plan on purchasing 16 or 32 on my next payment, since the amount of games I’m purchasing digitally is increasing(it just became a little bit cheaper and a lot faster to purchase JP PSN card and buy the game digitally, than order it at an import shop and wait for delivery).
      PSP – 8GB, quite enough, for PSP, the memory isn’t of any issue.

    Anyone played the Lego Marvel Superheroes demo yet?

    Me and my girlfriend tried it yesterday, it’s great :) definite day one buy for us. We 100%’d Lego Batman 2 together, something I don’t normally have the patience for, but that was genuinely fun so I’m looking forward to this.

    Since getting voice acting and open worlds, these games have become so much more appealing.

    • Elvick

      Waiting to see what the handheld versions are like.

      I don’t get to play them with people so it’s portable or bust for me these days with LEGO games.

      • McPoo

        If the 3DS version is any good then I’ll get that too. That said, I don’t think the other handheld versions have been great, other than maybe Lego Ciry

    • Anime10121

      Which systems is the demo out for?

      • McPoo

        PC, and PS360 I believe. Not sure about Vita or 3DS

  • RSene

    So, how not to comment about the U$1800 PS4 price in Brazil? I’m still not believing on this.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Yeah. I’ve read a little bit about it. Some kind of crazy tax related thing from what I understand. I think it’s awful. Absurd prices. =/

      • RSene

        Unfortunatelly, as much as we love Sony, there’s no how to not blame the company as well for this price.

        That’s because, after applying all the taxes our govs have (which is one of the highests in the world), the price of the console would be like about U$1000 or so.

        So to sell the console for U$ 1800 is indeed absurd. XOne will be sold here for like U$1000 – U$ 1100, so, unfortunately, there’s no how to not blame Sony as well.

        There’s something really wrong will all that. EIther way, its absurd even if you consider just the taxes…

  • MosquitoLemon

    I played some Pokemon, good stuff. I don’t like messing with the mini games, so I had my friend play around with them to gain affection while I slept, hahaha.

  • EX+

    Who else wants KH2.5, FF15 and next-gen Naruto trailers at Jump Festa? I don’t think we’ll be seeing KH3 again until SE Japan has their January conference (If they have one).

    • DarkLegacy

      Who knows? I was hoping to see XV and 2.5 at Jump Festa

      • EX+

        I think they will be. Like I said before, I hope FFXV and KH3 don’t come to PC.

        • DarkLegacy

          I don’t think both will go on PC but I hope not. If KH3 and FFXV were going on PC, both of these are more than likely going to be pirated right?

          • EX+

            Yeah. The demand is very low as well, so hopefully SE will just not put it on the PC.

            • DarkLegacy

              I’m just keeping my fingers crossed so that they don’t

        • bloodiOS

          There definitely isn’t any point in those two titles coming to PC.

          • EX+

            Exactly. It’d be a waste of time and money. There’s really no market for JRPGs on the PC. Everyone’s after stuff like the Witcher.

    • Anime10121

      I expect KH2.5 and HOPING for XV, but as far as Naruto goes, I’m hoping they wait for the mangas conclusion before making another game. Storm 3 felt incomplete (though I LOVED chapter 4)…

      • EX+

        I was hoping for FFXV to see how all of those complicated moves Noctis was pulling off in the battle trailer are performed. I’m guessing it’s some kind of combo system.

    I think the steam machines are quite pointless.

      • EX+

        They’re literally PCs.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      I think it would be fair to wait and see what the price tag of the lower end models are, and how Valve decides to market official steam machines.

      I think it might be on point to say that the steam machines will likely be irrelevant to console only gamers. Which would be fairly true, but it remains to be seen exactly what path Valve is planning on taking with the steam machines.

      To be honest, I said this in a previous thread. I’m really expecting Valve to continue down the road of simplicity and accessibility. Both are key components of console gaming.

      Imagine an affordable piece of hardware with steam running on it, that has the same dependability of a console, but all the perks of steam, along with making it simple to use and easily accessible.

      Something you could walk into a store and buy. I think the affordable price tag would be on lower end models, but I’m not ruling this out. It could happen.

      I don’t think console gaming is going anywhere. I don’t think PC gaming is going anywhere. I think the invisible line, barrier, wall, whatever you want to call it – that separates them – will continue to be blurred.

      We have already seen both sides borrow from each other, take good things from console gaming and apply to them PC gaming, and vice versa. I think this is simply inevitable.

      And you know what? At the end of the day, we are all gamers. Wouldn’t it be nice to just end this silly fake battle people seem to want to have? PC gaming only! Console gaming only! Rage!!!! It just gets old for someone like me, I just want to have fun discussing games with other gamers, playing games. Perhaps… just maybe, blurring this line even more will slowly put an end to that. I think that would be pretty nice.

      • EX+

        I agree with what you said. Especially the last paragraph.

            I have come up with something within this week but I don’t think Gematsuians would like it due to its mainstream-ness. I pretty much crapped out on my original ideas on game shirts :P I still owe Zero my KH fanart late entry -___-.

          I’ve Unemployed for almost 5 years now and I’m still trying to find a job in a place where managers choose family members and friends over qualifying personnel.

          Long vacations may seem good the 1rst year but after that a feeling of emptiness gets a hold of oneself.

          I survive by being a freelance PC technician but my clients aren’t strangers and because I don’t live on my own I can’t bring strangers to the place I live for my own and my family security.

          If you can take care of yourself then you’re in a better position than me.

          BTW I don’t receive unemployed benefits since my job was part of the Pell grant when I worked as a PC administrator assistant at the university.

          • Gigus

            We’re pretty much on the same boat. I’m actually on hiatus with PC repair. Clients are such assholes when they question your credibility and when they start to barter/bargin. Where I’m from we don’t have that kind of luxury with unemployment benefits XD. I also did some interning at the Uni I was in but pay was like my parents giving me lunch money lol.

            I just graduated recently with an “AS” degree and I do plan to get my certifications. I’m not only aiming for COMP TIA+. I’m planning to get other certifications in programming, networking, and graphics. Computer science was such a broad major I ended up minoring in two direct fields of the profession (networking and graphics). I would have gotten my BA a year early if I sticked to CS but there was so much to learn I wanted to try everything computer related.

              The exams price themselves are the proble

              • Gigus

                It is kind of a bummer that they changed the policy on the A+ certification. I should have taken it while they didn’t change their standards back in 2009. Oh well. I do agree that the pricing is a problem. They are extremely pricey but they are worth it. Oh! A little off topic but I just did an art post a few hours ago. Feel free to laugh at how crappy they look lol.

    Carmack is downplaying the PS4 and XBO. Get this: He says the increase of RAM (512MB-8GB) is not significant. BS at the highest order.

        What are you talking about? Rage looked gorgeous and ran at 60FPS.

        • 罪罰

          The game was okay, it lacked dynamic lighting but it was a very nice looking and technical game, only he could pull off 60fps. It was a mistake from his part to focus on consoles and he widely accepted it.

          • Xaltmas

            I had fun with it. Some of the best FPS gameplay this gen, in my opinion.

            Textures got a little bit rough up-close though, but the fact that it ran at a solid 60 FPS is still impressive.

        • Anime10121

          My bad, it was PC that I kept hearing Rage ran horribly on, though i could have sworn the frame rate was jacked up on the PS3 demo I’d played…

          But whatevs, Carmack is more a PC guy anyway (as is id Soft in general), thus my care level for them aren’t really that high. Plus the only FPS I’ve ever liked were Halo and Unreal Tournament, so theres also that…

    • 罪罰

      He is correct.

      • shogunknight

        Nah, not really. I dont know what amount of ram you need to deem it significant because to be honest i feel 8gb is good enough for both PCs and the two next gen consoles (IMO). The launch line-up for those 2 may appear weak but thats because they are just ‘launch titles’. We havent even started those 2 consoles cycles and they are already being discriminated due to the specs not being better than pc gaming rigs. Its very impressive with 512mb we were able to see a game like Halo 4, Gears of War from 360 and Last of Us, Uncharted from the PS3. Even the WiiU has a lot to offer in the coming years, its still in its 1st year. Its great that pc gaming has been rekindled, but i seriously dont know what specs everyone wanted that wont make any of the 2 consoles costly. Nvidia? Their offer was probably too expensive compared to AMDs

        • 罪罰

          GPU/CPU are 90% – 95% of the power behind creating those games you mentioned, the expertise, optimization and handling of those two is what made them possible. RAM had only about 5% – 10% to do with it. (PS3 had only 252mb of RAM technically but it was the architecture’s design that allowed it to outperform in various areas). Having mumbo wumbo 8GIGOBAYTS GIDIARR FAIV of RAM won’t do as much as everybody thinks.

          • shogunknight

            5%-10%? I may need citations. I think the RAM is way more important than 5-10%, The PS4s 8GB RAM is supposed to be easily and fully addressable by both the CPU and GPU (the reason they made it a unified pool). PC GPU has two buses. There’s a bus the GPU uses to access VRAM, and there is a second bus that goes over the PCI Express that the GPU uses to access system memory. But whichever bus is used, the internal caches of the GPU usually becomes a significant barrier to CPU/GPU communication — any time the GPU wants to read information the CPU wrote, or the GPU wants to write information so that the CPU can see it, time-consuming flushes of the GPU internal caches are required. Its for that reason 8gb is very important for the PS4, not sure about X1s case (havent read much about its hardware)

          • LordKaiser

            Are you saying that the CPU will bottleneck the RAM? I don’t think that the bottleneck will be that significant, what is important here is the speed of the included hardrive and if it will have issues if a SSD is used instead.

    • bloodiOS

      8GB of DDR3 might not be, but saying that 8GB of GDDR5 isn’t significant is just crazy. And really, it isn’t just about a massive increase in RAM though, but being straight-forward and much easier to program for (on the PS4, at least) sure makes hell of a lot of difference.

    Thinking about the next contest ideas for Gematsu. I need to likely limit the winners down to two for these next few.

    Suggestions for this month? I’ve almost let October slip by here.

    My plan for next month is something for the next gen consoles. I wish I could give away consoles or something, but I’m not rich. I’m still undecided, because holiday months are so unpredictable. Gotta go out and buy gifts for the family. I never know what’s going to happen to be honest.

    I also want to do something Nintendo related very soon. Maybe this month? Any suggestions. I also have the Vita in mind, I need to do something for it. I’ve done consoles only so far, even some PC gaming.

    So, any suggestions for something on 3DS or Vita for this month? I only need prize suggestions. I’ll likely do something easy for the contest/giveaway.

    I appreciate any replies.

    (By the way. We also need another open forum giveaway for this month. I realize this. I’ll do my best, but I promise things will get easier for me after the holidays. I want to try and have two open forum giveaways per month, but I might only be able to manage one per until after the holidays.)

    • Azuardo

      Hm, bringing 3DS into the equation instantly makes me think that it could limit who can take part if you’re offering 3DS games, since the system is region locked. I’m okay to take part in PS3 comps even if the game/code you offer is for US because I have a US account on top of my UK one. But I only have a UK 3DS.

      You’re well within your right to only do US 3DS games of course, but just something worth pointing out to people that take part in the comp if it’s a US 3DS game :)

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        True. I can just paypal winners the money or something to bypass that problem. I did that when one of the winners of the FFXIV contest wanted to buy the PS3 version in the UK.

        I also sent one of our winners a copy who lives in Singapore. Location is not a big deal for me. =)

        I don’t like these contests online that exclude so many people just because they don’t live in the usa.

        Thanks for the feedback though!

        • McPoo

          Could always offer something like a cool 3ds case too?

          Put together a 3DS survival kit, with a strong case, some earphones, extra styli, and any other essentials. That’d be an interesting prize.

          “I can just paypal winners the money or something to bypass that problem.”

          Problem: Currency converts and different game prices…. Ex. 60 USD for game X / 80-90 AUD for game X (Same game but different regions)

            Yep, I know. I’ve already experienced that as well. Had to spend around $60 for one physical copy of a game that retails for $30.

            I also know all about shipping charges. I’ve spent $45ish alone on shipping prizes to previous winners.

            The cost adds up, which is why I kinda have to keep the big epic contests down a bit for the next few months.

            Thanks for the feedback though. I appreciate it.

    • Gigus

      Real family first before gematsu family lol. As far as contest goes, I’m out of ideas. Pokemon contest?

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Hmmm… maybe?

        • Gigus

          Halloween related works fine also. Pokemon costume contest? I think people won’t do it XD.

  • Xaltmas

    To those who aren’t going to get a next-gen console this year, what are you waiting for?

    Personally, I’m waiting to see if Guilty Gear Xrd and Lily Bergamo are really PS exclusives. They are the only PS4 games I want, and the world “exclusive” has yet to be used, so I’m holding out hope for Xbone versions.

    As someone who gamed almost exclusively on a 360 this gen, it would bum me out to see developers who had been multiplatform go exclusive to one or the other.

    • Tac-Mex

      >As someone who gamed almost exclusively on a 360 this gen

      I pity you

      • Xaltmas

        Why?

      • McPoo

        Would you offer the same pity for someone who used any console exclusively? Or do you just not like the 360?

    • 罪罰

      >gamed exclusively on 360

      • Xaltmas

        I still don’t get it. What’s the problem?

        • 罪罰

          Nothing, I just wanted to use that picture lol

          • Xaltmas

            Oh. I can see why. That duck is pretty gangster.

            • 罪罰

              Honestly, why only play on 360?
              That would bore me to death, not that I hate it or anything it’s just that I don’t like limiting myself.

              • Xaltmas

                I like western games more, and the Japanese games I do like are all multiplatform, so the 360 was enough for me. I also prefer the controller over the PS3’s.

                I own a PS3 and a Wii, but I don’t use them. The only PS3 exclusives that remotely interest me are Drakengard 3 and The Last of Us.

                • Budgiecat

                  omg you dont like Yakuza & Valkyria Chronicles?? You should probably go see a doctor…

      • Elvick

        Is it bad that I didn’t notice those were human hands until seeing the image at least 4 times? ._.

        I was really not focusing in on what was going on xD

    • Kobracon

      Waiting for price drops mainly. I’ve live long enough to know that buying a console at launch is only for the impatient or those with a bit’o money. There WILL be a price drop, as well as a better version somewhere down the line. I have enough on my backlog (not to mention a Steam account with lotsa games I haven’t finished yet) to last a year at least and by then the next gens should be cheaper and/or better.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    FFXV excites me as does KH3.
    Im also waiting for anything else to come up on the possible Square-Enix & Namco-Bandai collaboration. Though not yet official ive been wanting this since 2008.

    • Blizzaja

      Just having either one would make me faint!

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    After my 360 REd Ringed on me i said F this. Since then ive stuck with PS3. Gotta love them JRPG’s and SONY first party games.

    • 罪罰

      It only failed to me once, replaced it and just didn’t play it anymore. Nothing really got my attention so I only played my PS3 ever since, sometimes I turn it on to play some wacky Indie XBLA games for the laughs but it was pretty much dead to me since 2010. Last game I bought for it was Bayonetta because the PS3 version sucked dinky balls.

    • Xaltmas

      My OG 360 died on me, then I got a PS3 and used that for about a year.

      Then I got a 360 Slim and sold all my PS3 games. :)

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    For me as a gamer. I don’t hate Xbox but i only get it for certain games im interested in. For example I wanted 360 for Tales of Vesperia, Blue Dragon, and Lost Odyssey. I figured then i’d wait for Star Ocean The Last Hope to get on PS3 and it did. I truly don’t care much for Halo after Halo 2, and well FPS games can only hold my interest for so long.

    This is why I like SONY’s First party studios they generally make a variety of games. Heck then Gen. alone I almost Rage quit on Demon’s Souls a number of times. But in the end after beating the game I was satisfied.

    Where am I getting at you ask? the answer is simple I realize that i buy more than 2 consoles per generation because x system has certain games I want for it. This gen. I bought a PS3,Wii, and 360, only to end up sticking with PS3 the most. The more time goes on the more I realize my preferences have chaged. When I was younger i’d buy a buncha Nintendo & Sega games during the 8, & 16-bit eras. By the 32-bit I had a N64 only to later want a PS1 cause of the badass library of games from Squaresoft with Xenogears being one of the many.

    • shogunknight

      My favorite genres are jrpgs, strategy, fighting then any other genre that is good to play. Its why i always go for a Playstation, PC and a Nintendo console. When i saw some Xbox titles making its way to PC later on i decided to get those games on PC instead.

  • 罪罰

    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x165jlx_call-of-duty-ghosts-launch-trailer_videogames
    Doggies, explosions and next gen visuals. I’m not a fan of COD nor a hater but I’d like to try this one out on PS4. It’s been 6 years since I bought a COD lol

  • HarryHodd

    Still want Vesperia in English on PS3.

    • DichaTesoro

      I’d prefer getting Tales of Destiny or Innocence.

      • bloodiOS

        Bundle them all into one collection.

        • LordKaiser

          I was thinking the same. Vesperia complete and Abyss HD in a bundle.

          • Elvick

            Not a bad idea. It’d be a win/win for Namco really.

            Re-re-sell Abyss with minimal effort, shut everyone up about Vesperia. :D

            I mean, I’d love Abyss on the PS3. Despite having it on 3DS… and I’ll probably end up buying it on PS2 too. :P

            • AdamBoy64

              Yes, I think a port / remaster of Abyss for a console would be pretty neat.

              Even if it’s just to cut down the loading times and fix a few small things here and there.

              And yes, they wouldn’t need to put much effort into an Abyss remaster. They could just do the same ‘work’ they did with the Symphonia remaster and knock off early for the day.

    • Budgiecat

      And the Tales of Hearts R & Tales of Innocence R in English

    • AdamBoy64

      It’d be nice, but, well – I think that ship has long since sailed.

  • bloodiOS

    “Can consoles run Crysis?”
    or
    “Can Crytek make Crysis run on consoles?”

      LOL!!!

    • Zackasaur

      Definitely the latter. It’s all about optimisation.

  • Blizzaja
    • DarkLegacy

      Same here. I pretty much like the gameplay to it including those new attacks we saw at D23 Expo. I can say that the game is going to be amazing

      • Blizzaja

        It has to be nothing short of amazing.

        • DarkLegacy

          Well all I can say is that KH3 will be an epic game

          • Blizzaja

            The trailers are becoming proof of that.

            • DarkLegacy

              Exactly, and next year we could see more with new techniques and a bit of story trailers

              • Blizzaja

                I would be sad if they didn’t show those.

                • DarkLegacy

                  Me too. But what I love most is those new techniques that have been brought in

                  • Blizzaja

                    Well I’m not too stoked about the graphics since I’m so used-to and I prefer the older graphics, I still understand that it’s a PS4 game and it would be out of place if it wasn’t the highest quality the console can handle.

                    I just want the story to be good, the story is the main core of the game. If it isn’t good then everything will come crashing down. That’s even if you do have breathtaking graphics.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Yeah I’m wanting the story to be good and I need the game in good condition rather than letting SE rush cause of how long the fans have been waiting for KH3

                    • Blizzaja

                      I am just sad that all these years we begged and waited, and they only just started making KH3.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      KH3 was suppose to be being developed on 2010 but it was KH 3D that started being developed 2010

                    • Blizzaja

                      I haven’t played DDD, how is it?

                    • DarkLegacy

                      It’s a good game. You’re able to play as Sora and Riku and there a less worlds in the game. And it took me long to complete the game like a load of weeks

                    • Blizzaja

                      Do you think we’ll ever get it in a 3.5 Remix if we get one? I don’t have money for a 3DS :[

                    • DarkLegacy

                      I don’t know. It’ll take us a load of years to wait for 3.5 cause there developing KH3 and after they’ve finished that then they can make the series so it’ll be long before we expect 3.5 HD

                    • Blizzaja

                      I’ll probably have a 3DS by then, and two copies of DDD by the time 3.5 Remix might come out.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      And by the time they’ve finished developing KH3 and are making the HD Remix then I’ll be playing 2.5 or perhaps FFXV which should be 2015

                    • http://popculturesocialclub.com/ DreamDrop♥

                      And @Sorahearts:disqus, DDD will get a RE treatment before 3 proper comes out, making 3 a 2016 title and holding with the one KH game a year we’ve have going for some time now.

        • EX+

          I’ll give you a few things to chew on.
          Sora’s mobility in KH3 is already at a higher level than final form from KH2.
          And you know the reveal trailer? When Sora was walking on the beach? That’s what the game is going to look like when development takes even more advanced stages.

          • Blizzaja

            I’m not sure if I like the way it looks though, I like the way that it looks more real but if you compare it to the other games then it stands out because of the
            hyper-realism.

          • Blizzaja

            When I first saw the KH3 trailer I was saying: Is this really the same kind of game I played back in 2002?

      • EX+

        I know! Can’t wait for it. What excites me the most is the aerial combat.

        • DarkLegacy

          Yeah. I like how Sora was riding the Heartless in the E3 trailer which made it epic

          • Blizzaja

            I would be really happy if we could actually do that.

            • DarkLegacy

              I think we will. I just don’t want SE taking that away

              • Blizzaja

                Well that would be good then.

              • Blizzaja

                I just found this.

                liger69.deviantart.com

                • DarkLegacy

                  XD lol that’s funny. And I thought I was the only one that found these reactions funny when they showed off KH3 at E3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzyfrg6Ufb8

                  • Blizzaja

                    Lol, I almost fell over a few times when I saw both KH3 and FFXV trailers in one day. KH is the greatest game series of all time for me, and it just blew me away when i saw both KH3 and FFXV.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Yeah I was excited when they showed off KH3. And those reactions that I showed you, that’s what happened to me “C’MON! YOU CAN DO IT C’MON C’MON DO IT YEEESSSS!” lol. And I just kept on watching KH3’s trailer including FFXV’s trailer and after that I kept up with some updates on both of the games

                    • Blizzaja

                      I kept up with all the updates so far, that’s the first time I saw fan reactions. It’s not surprising considering how long we waited

                    • DarkLegacy

                      I kept up with most updates on KH3 and FFXV. But we’ll be waiting a lot of years for KH3 like 2016 with it being in an early development

                    • Blizzaja

                      Well it better be well worth the wait!

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Well we have 2.5 to help us wait

                    • Blizzaja

                      xD, don’t remind me about that or you may have to pay for my funeral!

                    • DarkLegacy

                      lol I’m hardly dying to play KH2FM

        • Blizzaja

          What excites me the most is the fact that it’s a KH game! I’ve been playing KH since KH1, There’s nothing like KH. The games are amazing and one of a kind.

  • McPoo

    Anyone here a fan of the V/H/S films? Just watched the 2nd one this evening, I really enjoyed it. The first segment was very creepy, and the second was a quirky idea, and pretty cool. The third was batshit crazy, and the fourth was a bit disappointing. Overall, not quite as good as the first one, definitely worth watching though.

    I have a question for anyone that’s seen them both. I was looking at the message board on IMDB for it, and stumbled across a couple of people saying it’s been confirmed 2 is a prequel to 1. When I watched it though, I got the opposite impression. I’m almost certain it comes chronologically after the first, anyone able to shed some light?

    I realise this may be a bit of a long shot, I don’t think the films are hugely well known, and the reviews are a bit all over the place too >_>

    • Gigus

      Haven’t watched them yet but I heard they’re pretty good.

      • McPoo

        I think they’re great. I love horror films (although I haven’t watched as many in the last few years), and the V/H/S films are really entertaining.

        The first one is a lot darker than the second, and is very unsettling in places. The second has a bit more fun with the found footage style camera play. I love the way the stories are individual segments too with a wrap around segment going on in between. They have some really inventive ideas for the style of filming too.

        Could not recommend them enough :)

        • Gigus

          I’ll see if its on netflix. Thanks for the recommendation though. I’ve been meaning to watch it lately. Just didn’t have time for it.

          • McPoo

            No problem. Think the first is on Netflix, not sure about 2. Let me know what you think :)

    REBORN ‘s Kickstarter campaign cancelled! To restart again in November!

    REBORN (REDUX) in November 2013
    Hi Backers,
    So after thinking about our Kickstarter campaign and talking to backers regarding our reward levels, and various other requests for ports including our stretch goals, we really want to consider a re-launch of REBORN with many things corrected and refined. I also want to make sure that the current backers also receive a special incentive for staying with us and supporting REBORN. I hope that you come back to us once we re-launch REBORN in November, 2013. We will not forget about anyone and as such, I will be contacting each one of you to inform you of your reward for supporting us!Please allow me to explain what has happened thus far. Below are 6 factors that I have assessed that helped us to identify the root cause of our current failing Kickstarter campaign and how to make it more informative and stronger for everyone when we re-launch.
    [1] Listening to our backers – I took many good pieces of advice about our campaign on Kickstarter in correspondence directly from you, our backers. With this knowledge, and as an indie developer, I want what is best for you and for us. I know that we will not be able to appease everyone, but for those who will allow us this chance to rectify this, I say thank you! I have had a chance to study and understand Kickstarter long and hard regarding the: a) overall funding progress over time, b) where our backers are coming from through the internet, c) stats on our video, d) reward popularity graphs, and e) our individual backer activity in terms of your comments, backing, and overall activity with us.
    [2] Our Kickstarter “Story” and Rewards should be limited, simple, and clear – such that we condense the amount of text to a limit. In this initial campaign, I made my overall campaign including the reward language far too verbose and lengthy. I realize that you guys don’t have all the time in the world to read through everything, so this is an edit I would like to do in the re-launch.
    [3] Reward’s language, value, estimated deliver, and int’l shipping fees are unchangeable once reward is selected – I did not realize that a campaign’s reward language is etched in stone after it’s made available in a live campaign and just ONE backer selects the reward. Once it’s selected by one of you, we are not allowed to change anything about a reward except for the quantity, regardless if it is an update to better the reward level.
    [4] I want to be conservative and realistic in setting our fundraising goal – we are getting many backers asking us if 200k is enough for us. Truth of the matter is, we have lots of code base created, but the new models (3D characters and environments), except for the Musashi model, is not quite ready to be displayed or discussed. The previous Musashi model is not representative of the current model we have, and we want to take this time to get in our mocap data to flesh out our gameplay features with the new assets.
    [5] The length of our campaign matters – such that we should have given ourselves at least 40 days or so (10 days extra buffer) in case of life.
    [6] Marketing! We have to be more active, social and voiced in order to get our project out there into the eyes and ears of the crowd-funding community. In this redux campaign, building on the great word-of-mouth will greatly help REBORN. Since many of us are not filmmakers by birth, our chance of REBORN’s videos going viral is slim, but we need to be more active with people, like you about our project, both online and in person. Most of you have expressed concern around the sheer lack of media attention. This much is certain…So suspending this campaign now will give us the chance to reach out to more press including top tier press.
    In our redux campaign, we will show the following:
    [1] A behind-the-scenes motion capture session with Shin Koyamada with a technical breakdown of the process that goes into mocapping a set of character animations.
    [2] A glimpse of our gameplay.

    a) Menu system, HUD, Combat/Combo system.

    [3] AMAA (Ask Me Almost Anything) to follow up with hard real-time/live questions.
    [4] SOJOBO in-game turntable turnaround.
    [5] 3-5 lines of very straightforward text explaining our rewards and a complete rework of the rewards levels. Concise reduction of homepage text with current visual aid and some never before seen assets.
    [6] Restructure the rewards list to better accommodate your desired level.
    [7] Offer Mac & Linux support in a higher stretch goal tier.
    [8] Languages and Subtitles: English and Japanese initially. French, German, and Spanish to come later upon reaching higher stretch goals.
    [9] Improve the stretch goals and be more detailed and offer better incentives for the community because at the end of the day, we are making this game together.
    Sometimes it’s hard to examine failure while the pain caused by it still lingers, but being an entrepreneur means sometimes getting back up off the canvas when you’ve been knocked down, and simply refusing to accept a result you don’t like. To me, failure is often a great chance to rediscover one of the many paths to success, and Kickstarter is no exception to this so that is why I am considering this move with your acceptance.

      Guess it was because they knew they had to show gameplay to get people interested.

        Well yeah, but not necessarily for everyone. When I read the text description I fell in love with it! XD

  • ayb91

    My guess tells me that KH III will be released in 2015. The first quarter of it hopefully.

    • bloodiOS

      There might be a chance for Final Fantasy XV to come out by then but Kingdom Hearts III? You’ll have to wait longer than that.

      • ayb91

        Because its name is XV and has to be released in 2015?? Hmmm, it was my guess after all. Anyways, both games are awesome.

        • EX+

          Apparently, the FFXV release date should be announced before the end of SE’s fiscal year, which is in March 2014.

          • DarkLegacy

            And KH3 could have a release of 2015. Anyway March does seem like a good release and I could have 5 months to wait for XV

            • Azuardo

              Seriously man, FF15 is not coming out next year :/

              Besides, EX+ said the date could be ‘announced’ before the end of the fiscal year, not that it would release then. And it won’t release in 2014 at all. Not trying to crush your hopes or anything, but people are only going to be crushed by their own unrealistic assumptions otherwise.

              • DarkLegacy

                Well I was kind of saying that what if XV did have a 2014 release and KH3 having a 2015 release. I don’t think I see KH3 having a 2015 release but more than likely a 2016

                • Azuardo

                  Okay, I just don’t wanna see so many people’s hopes crushed for wishing the impossible. There’s nothing to indicate FF15 is coming next year. The most realistic you could expect is latter half of 2015.

                  • Anime10121

                    Yep, if (and thats a BIG IF) FFXV were to release next year, it’d only be for Japan in Q4. Theres no way they’d release two single player console Final Fantasies in the same calendar year. ESPECIALLY since FFXIV PS4 version is releasing early next year too. There is literally no way in hell they’d release 3 Final Fanatsies in a year…

                    • Azuardo

                      Certainly for the West you’ve got FFXHD, LRFF13 and FF14(PS4). No new trailers or gameplay demos for FF15 indicate this still has a long way to go yet. People instantly assume just because it’s been “in development” for “so many years” that it automatically must be almost finished for next-gen.

                    • Anime10121

                      Exactly, XV ( as does KH3) has a LONG way to go yet before release unfortunately.

                    • Azuardo

                      KH3 definitely more so. That latest trailer didn’t look impressive to me at all.

                    • Anime10121

                      It looked great to me, though I know its all still just prototype stuffs :(

                    • Azuardo

                      Aye, I’m not looking into it too much because like we both say, a very long way to go yet. But it did nothing for me; just same old button mash hack ‘n slash with shoddy camera angles. Didn’t really see the point in releasing a trailer like that which looked so bland.

                    • Anime10121

                      Well, KH ALWAYS looks good to me, as I enjoy its gameplay, and the camera’s not bad to me at all :(

                      Also DAT GRAPHICAL STYLE :D

                      But I CAN tell you why they’re releasing these early ass trailers though, to prove they are actually making it :P and that its not another Vs. XIII type situation (at least how it started out all those years).

                    • Azuardo

                      Yep, I agree on the reason they showed them. Definitely is to just reassure fans they have something coming for next gen. Not announcing anything wouldn’t have looked good but… I would have settled for simply the FF15 announcement and then letting them announce KH3 about 2 years or less before release. This tendency to announce games years and years in advance does no favours for them – as already seen with the less informed thinking FF15 will be here next year.

                      Ah well, at least we know they’re both coming at some point.

                    • Anime10121

                      Well when I meant prove that they are actually making it, I meant to KH fans themselves. It was basically a move made in good nature to assure KH fans that the series is coming back to consoles after almost a decade of nothing but handheld titles. They announced it early so those fans could be assured that they would FINALLY get the console game they’ve been craving.

                      While I’m no fan of announcing shit half a decade in advance, I am glad to know that KH3 is officially legit, and actually coming sometime before I hit 30 in 4.5 years (that is, unless it ends up cancelled like Legends 3 was, but that’ll only happen if next gen completely flops).

                    • Azuardo

                      I can get around that. KH3 does seem like a special case in that it doesn’t really matter how long it will take to release after the announcement – so long as there’s confirmation, it’s enough for fans.

                      I think the long wait adds to the problem of those original fans’ ages now. We were all pretty much young teens when those games came out. I’m finding it difficult to have the same interest these days because of the series being aimed mainly towards young ‘uns. The HD remakes are definitely designed to bring in a new generation and get them interested in KH3, too. I know it goes both ways for old an new fans alike, but yeah, just thinking about how interest has waned since I’ve got older.

                    • Anime10121

                      Never been a problem with me. I see my self in the future getting old as hell while still being young at heart. Even at 25, I have no problem going to see Disney movies (hyped for Frozen) or still liking cartoons (as evident of me being an anime fan :P), so I have no problem with the series being aimed at the young ‘uns. So even when I’m 50, I can see myself being hyped for Kingdom Hearts 5… though, my time to actually PLAY video games has dwindled quite a bit with the responsibilities of being an adult, I doubt I’ll stop enjoying the things I’ve always been fond of because of age.

                    • Azuardo

                      I’d like to think I can retain that myself. I believe I still do for the most part, but I’ve definitely shifted for more reasons than one away from what many would deem for kids. It really depends, I guess. I mean, I would still be inclined to get KH3, even if it’s mainly for its FF ties, but you wouldn’t catch me playing a Pokemon game ever again (stopped after Gold when I was about 14/15). But of course, we’re all different, and I’m sure I’ll be like you in continuing to play many a good ‘kid-oriented’ game for years to come.

                    • Anime10121

                      I stopped liking Pokemon after Gold/Silver too (the series pinnacle imo), however Black/White (the original ones at least) brought me back, I bought X, havent played much of it though… I think the thing with you and Pokemon isn’t so much about you getting older more than it is, its hard finding groups of people to play/trade with now that we are out of school! Pokemon’s allure is that its fun for a community, and if you can no longer find people around you to play with, it DEFINITELY makes the series less appealing.

                      I mean, part of the reason I liked B/W was because it basically rebooted the series (at least until you beat the game) and everything was new. They also tried a bit with the story (which ended up going NOWHERE in the sequels) and had pretty good music. But yeah, not having people around to play X/Y with has hampered my desire to play yet another Pokemon game that even with all of its changes, doesnt feel as “new” as B/W. So, uh, yeah, I think at least as far as Pokemon goes, that has less to do with age than it does a lack of 500 or so people in a school to trade/battle with.

                    • ayb91

                      They already took 8 years for xv. Could it be went all for nothing?? I hope not. It should be released now goddamn it !!

                    • Azuardo

                      Who knows whether they really have taken 8 years, though? I’m sure a lot of changes have happened since its original design, as well. Now the whole thing has shifted to completely new platforms and there’s little indication that they’re that far along into development with just one apparent “gameplay” trailer that many believe is full of CG. Yeah, the game should have been out a long time ago, but there’s nothing to indicate this game will be ready next year. It’ll come… just not as soon as many people think.

                    • ayb91

                      I completely agree with you.

          • Blizzaja

            I don’t see it waiting a lot longer, it’s either 2015 or 2016. From what I’ve seen it looks perfect, it would be hard for SE to find a reason to keep it hidden for much longer. Especially after a seven year wait!

        • bloodiOS

          Name has nothing to with it. I’m just looking at the pattern. 2-year gap between XIII and XIII-2, another 2-year gap between XIII-2 and LR, so it’s only natural to think that XV will be released in 2015 instead of 2014.

  • EX+

    Who else loves Reluctant Heroes from AOT?

  • McPoo

    Has anyone here tried The Wolf Among Us? Just gave the demo a go, I really likes it. Beautiful style and seems a bit more action orientated than TWD, which makes it feel different.

    Wondering how it stacks up to TWD, any opinions? Thinking I might get the season pass :)

  • RSene

    About the latest God Eater trailer, the content showed in the video is what we’ll see in the game or it is something related to the things available to buy in store? I ask because the trailer title brings the word ‘Store’ on it, so i’m not sure what that means.

    The trailer itself doesn’t seems to be related to additional purchases or something like that.

    • TheExile285

      You mean DLC? I would hope all of that is in-game but since I don’t speak or read Japanese I can’t confirm :/

      • RSene

        Yeah, I’m wondering if the trailer is about DLCs or not. It looks like this is not the case, actually, but considering the trailer title, I just would like to confirm.

        • TheExile285

          Sal would probably know for sure so I’d make a comment on the article asking him about it if I were you.

      店頭 (or tentou) means “store front.” This is just the trailer that they have playing on TV screens at retail shops that sell video games.

    Capcom doesn’t have enough money to make a next gen fighter… that’s beyond sad.

    • Azuardo

      Think I read that it would take many years before a possible Street Fighter 5, but it will happen eventually. Always does.

    • shogunknight

      Depends on how things go from Deep Downs release and USFIV. If things go well with those two, we may see SFV sooner than later. Like @azuardo:disqus said, there will always be a new street fighter. Probably going to see it halfway or post PS4/X1 cycle

      • Budgiecat

        I’m sure Capcom’s bound to do something shady with Deep Down that pisses people off to warrant the game not selling well despite it being f2p. That’s already the start of suspect news…

    • Charlie

      Am I the only who doesn’t want another SF? Capcom has many great fighting game franchises, why not milk them for a while?

      • Anime10121

        I’d like Rival Schools 3, but that’s in the same boat as Legends 3. i.e. it aint happening :(

        • Charlie

          Rival Schools 3 would be amazing on current or next gen consoles. I’d also love to see Powerstone in HD but we all know that isn’t going to happen!

          • Anime10121

            Them sad truths :(

            Like I said SFV is the only game (that has any chance of releasing) from Capcom I see myself wanting…

            They have so much I WANT to see released that’ll never happen :(

            • Charlie

              Too true. The sad thing is, they don’t know how much profit they could make.

    • Anime10121

      Thats beyond bad :(

      SFV (hopefully with a better art style) for Next gen is about the only game I want from them that had a chance of ever being released :(

    • Budgiecat

      Well if they can’t, I can’t imagine SNK can either….

      And I’m not sure what Sega is doing with Virtua Fighter

      And we all know Bloody Roar is dead…

    • Elvick

      Sad… justice…

      Whatever.

      Sucks for the fans who do want it, but Capcom deserves this situation. They brought it on themselves with open arms.

    • $18114340

      Honestly, they brought it on themselves. And I’m not saying that to be vindictive or anything, but Capcom really hasn’t looked like they’ve known what they’re doing for a while now. DmC was a PR fiasco because the developers were actively being hostile to series fans and Capcom didn’t stop them. Resident Evil 6 was a disaster because they couldn’t decide who the game was for or what it wanted to be. They canned a bunch of Megaman games that were widely anticipated and even well into development. They didn’t localize EX Troopers because they didn’t think there would be an audience for it when there clearly was; even if it was small it was dedicated. And even after saying that they were going to carefully reconsider their insane, widely-despised DLC practices as well as stop outsourcing titles to cheap lowest-common-denominator western developers, they did it again anyway with Lost Planet 3 and almost did it with SFXT. Remember Me was a dud because of the crazy overambitious, preachy marketing. I’m still skeptical of what they’re doing with Strider.

      Capcom hemorrhaged talent (Inafune, Platinum, Mikami) because they wouldn’t listen to their better half in the interests of milking their beloved franchises dry and leading on their fans with false promises.

      The sad part is that a lot of Capcom franchises — like Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, EX Troopers, Ace Attorney, Dragon’s Dogma, and especially Monster Hunter really do deserve to be successful. But many of them aren’t as successful as they can be because Capcom seems to treat their studios and properties like tools rather than assets (if anything Ono hints at is true) and their western audience like complete fucking aliens most of the time, “punishing” their customers for not buying their shittiest games. The only company worse at this than they are is probably Sega. Square Enix is about on par.

      • Elvick

        EX Troopers had hard coded text. The text was art. So, honestly, as bad as I want it, I think they did the right thing with that one. It would have required a lot of effort to bring over.

        That said, WHY they ever decided it was a good idea to have the text be that way is beyond me. That is where the poor management of that game lies. They shouldn’t have created it that way. I think there were plenty of alternatives they could have done.

        I think it would have probably sold pretty well had they brought it over on both platforms. (I probably would have bought it on both) It had a great appeal to the PS3 audience, and the 3DS is doing well (and was when it was back when the localization was more relevant than now).

        Remember Me was a pretty spiffy game IMO, but it’s the kind of game that really relies on the gamer community. And Capcom isn’t doing well there. We are NOT pleased with them at all. I’m not surprised people passed on it. For a variety of reasons, Capcom being involved being one of them.

        That and it would have been better to launch at $40 to ease the new IP aspect and the “something seems off” stance a lot of people had with it. Myself included, which as someone who loved it still feel wasn’t perfect (and i bought it at $60).

        And now it’s on sale for less than $20 on PSN… I hope those very few $60 sales were worth it over more at $40. I know it would have sold quite a bit better, still probably not amazing if they had released it as a budget title, but more are willing to take a risk early if it’s $40 rather than $60.

        I agree with pretty much everything you’re saying though.

      Pretty cool, I can imagine this being on Qwertee :)

      • Gigus

        -_- I’ve been turning in shirt designs to sites like that I get immediate rejection letters. The fastest was 6 hours. Thanks for the confidence builder!

        • McPoo

          Ah that sucks, I’m sure it’s just a matter of time :)

          What does the designer get out of those sort of sites? Is it a cut of the sales or something?

          I’ve been using Qwertee a fair bit recently, took a punt on the last 2 Insanitee random t-shirt things, both times I got sci-fi designs that are about as far away from what I wanted as possible >.<

          This last one I got was a (quite pretty) Star Gate one, which I'm trying to offload onto someone else as I have no interest in it. The one before that, which I've thankfully managed to trade was Time Wars – a Star Wars/Doctor Who mash up. I can't stand either of those, and was gutted when I got it as there were loads of cool designs in the pool :(

          • Gigus

            I hope so. I’m really aiming hard for the big one, “THE BIG ONE!” (imitates Trevor phillips even though I’m not a GTAV fan).

            Well every site varies. You do get paid though. You can go ahead and go to their website for a thorough disclaimer/agreement on how they work with their artist. Its a very competetive freelance art job because tons of novice/amatuer/professional artist are turning in designs.

            As far as buying shirts, I’ve only bought one and I forgot where I bought it. I bought it for someone else lol.

            That must really suck for not getting the shirt you want but thats the whole point of the Random bag XD. If I were you, I’d just keep checking on they’re pick of the day to see so you’ll be more comfortable with your pick.

            • McPoo

              I do quite like the week or so wondering what I’m going to get :p It’s just both times have been a bit disappointing. There seems to be a massive amount of Doctor Who stuff on there though, more than any other single thing as far as I’ve seen >.>

              I ordered a cool one the other week, it’s done like the Pokemon select screen from the old Red/Blue Pokemon games, only all 6 are Direwolves from A Song of Ice and Fire. That’s probably the only one I’ve liked enough on seeing it to order it straight away :p

              • Gigus

                Doctor Who is everywhere lol. I’m not really a huge fan of the series except the movie and Tennant (hilarious man).

                Hopefully I design something that suits your taste if it gets chosen. I’ll be posting more stuff here first to see how feedback is. If the reponse I’m getting is good, I’ll be submitting them in. Again, thanks for the confidence builder!

        That’s how I felt about both 5 and 6. To be fair, I only played them with friends (except for my first and second playthrough of 5), and I had a stupid amount of fun with both games….. MAYBE a little bit more in 6 because I could randomly kick my partner around when they were busy surviving something :D

        • Azuardo

          Yeah, I just enjoy the series for its whacky story and characters more than anything. Of course I’d love a return to the original style, but it doesn’t make me enjoy the current games any less. Co-op is always a blast.

      I posted my thoughts in the discussion way at the bottom… it’s a long read but I really do believe in what I said. Capcom brought this on themselves, and I don’t mean that in a mean or antagonistic way. I mean that it really makes me shake my head how Capcom could have made so many clearly terrible decisions within the past few years despite insistence from their fans and from their own people that the way they were managing the company’s public image, their game development, and their PR was going to be bad for them.

      Seriously, DmC was a grand disaster, to the point where it didn’t even really matter if the game was good or not.

    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

      Not sure how I feel about this…. On one hand, I don’t like TotalBiscuit * and on another, I don’t like how Youtube functions…

      I can’t blame the company that they want to take down any criticism when it comes to their games and means to sell their game and earn a living… On the other, this is anti-consumer tactic that censors the people’s voices…

      I heard(Didn’t watch because * ) that TotalBiscuits sent an email requesting the company for a review code to review the game (Something to keep in mind if you’re gonna say something)… Either if it’s fair or not, that’s up to one’s view and judgement…

      • Azuardo

        “I heard(Didn’t watch because * ) that TotalBiscuits sent an email
        requesting the company for a review code to review the game ahead…”

        What do you mean by “to review the game ahead?” Do you mean to review the game before anybody else, or to just review the game along with other people reviewing it?

        If it’s just asking for a code to review the game, that’s normal practice for reviewers – it’s how we get review copies at all for the majority of sites. Big ones like IGN etc will normally be offered codes by the company itself, but others have to send emails and get in touch with the company to request review copies.

        • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

          Either it’s ahead or day one… I don’t know since when it comes to TotalBiscuit, I never paid much attention… One thing I do know is that TotalBiscuit did asked for a review code..

          Reviewers asking for review codes is normal for them but depends on how generous the giver is… Some publishers outright decline to even big names reviewers… (I can’t remember which game was it but I’m sure there are some cases like this… )

          All in all, the company could have decline the request TotalBiscuit sent…

          • Azuardo

            Oh, so you mean he wanted to review the game before anybody else? Like, to get the first review of the game up? I guess just about every reviewer wants to get their own review in first, or to at least be one of the first, so that they get the most hits or views or whatever. I’m sure in TB’s case, since he makes money off of his videos, the earlier he gets his reviews out, the more views he gets, and then the more money he makes. I guess even with site hits it works the same way. I don’t think that’s really an issue unless they don’t give an accurate review. And in this case, it sounds like TB was just delivering an honest review.

            • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

              Don’t know what his intentions on reviews but he monetizes with them… He is actually making money using other people’s IPs in reviews under the guise of freedom in speech… What it looks like is TB takes advantage of criticizing the game(and potentially ruined a company’s means of putting food on their table) while he’s making money from it regardless… People don’t do reviews just for the sake of consumers’ rights, they find ways to make themselves rich…

                That’s no different to website critics like IGN etc. They get paid to write reviews and criticise if they think something is bad.

                  • Azuardo

                    Right, so you could treat every single paid reviewer in the same way as TB then.

                    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

                      Pretty much… But I don’t like TB in particular as opposed to other reviewers I came across…

                    • Azuardo

                      Fair enough. I believe he’s very much in the right with this, though.

    • Kobracon

      Ah thats so thats whats been happening. That sucks. I love TBs vids. Gotta love that snark. I hope he manages to pull out of this. I watch most of his WTF vids, it gives a good impression of whether a not a game is worth it.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Just watched this. It’s total bullshit, and further proof that google needs to do something. The copyright system used on Youtube is way too easy to abuse.

  • Budgiecat

    I have this weird feeling that next gen coming up, Japan will shift to the Vita, keep making games for 3DS, iOS & Android, and PS4/Wii U/XBone will be desolate for Japanese gaming overall…

    • Elvick

      I’d like to think that PS4 will do fine. I can’t see Xbone gaining ground unless MS flat out pay for it like they did with the 360 (and given how that flopped for them, I can’t see that happening!

      And Wii U… I just hope they don’t. I mean, it’s region locked. A disaster waiting to happen for Japanese games.

      • McPoo

        How did the 360 flop? They did alright out of it, didn’t they? I can’t see it gaining ground in Japan, but America and parts of Europe I imagine it’ll be very popular. I reckon the PS4 will likely do better though for the moment.

        The Wii U is just a waste of time and money. I honestly don’t think there’s any need for it.

        I’ve read several accounts by people from Japan of how gaming is changing over there, or at least how they see it changing. The general gist of what I’ve read seemed to be that people are primarily playing on iPhones now. Handhelds and the Wii U are seen as being quite ‘kiddy’, and consoles are still used but not as popular as they used to be. This is just from a few accounts, I found it quite interesting though.

        • Elvick

          Shall we cite the current sales? I mean… It flopped in Japan. I’m only talking about Japan. Context~

          Even the money they spent on obtaining timed Japanese exclusives, plus a 3 game deal with Mistwalker didn’t help.

          They realized this when they canned Cry On. It wasn’t worth pursuing. MS knows it failed there, everyone knows it.

          Sure it sold some and it sells some now, but there’s really not that much there. Just the same stuff from the early days when MS tried and failed. Plus Cave (who seem focused on mobile now) and some other niche stuff here and there. There are multiplat Japanese series (360/PS3) that have just dropped the 360 all together.

          It was a failure in Japan.

          • McPoo

            Haha my mistake. I don’t know why I thought I thought you were referring to the whole world, the topic was clearly about Japanese sales >.>

            Completely agree with you though, it was a massive failure in Japan. They do indeed have a few niche Japanese titles, but I don’t think a huge amount more would have made a difference. Japan seems to be quite an insular market – the iPhone is the only big western device that you hear about penetrating there. I doubt the effort Microsoft would have to go through to get a foothold in over there would be worth it, when they need to focus on the rest of the world at the moment too.

        why aren’t you suffering? I linked a video just for that. :(

        • DarkLegacy

          I’m sorry. It’s just the laugh nearly gave me a weak stomach

          • Wolf Star

            I don’t like what they did with messaging system
            -_- it’s really confusing..

            • DarkLegacy

              Really, How confusing? Actually I think I’m confused now for a reason that I don’t know lol

              • Wolf Star

                I’m using my phone and it’s getting confusing lol I have to go back to the post and respond to few people lol. Also they took out the messaging system so like I don’t know who send me what?? it’s random lol

                • DarkLegacy

                  Oh. You should get a Laptop or a Computer. Well first buy a PS4 so that you don’t use up all of your money then buy any either a Laptop or a Computer but that depends how much they are then you might have the messaging system

                  • Wolf Star

                    It’s alright there was a weird survey and I answered it also I clicked on revert back and it’s back to normal. Also I have laptop :) but I use my phone the most lol idk why. I still need to pay of my PS4 :p soo close.. Can’t wait :)

                    • DarkLegacy

                      That survey always happens to me only it makes a new tab and if I click x on the survey tab then this page or any page that I’m typing on will be refreshed. Also Disqus has a glitch that I can sometimes encounter and that’s double message box and it happens on PS4 Daily. And not long I’ll be on the PS4 now when I get it on launch :D

                    • Wolf Star

                      It’s my first time finding this survey and it was weird it tells me if I like the new design or not. And I can’t wait for Ps4 :) same here I’m buying day one ^^

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Yeah I’ll be buying a few games too on launch which will include Knack

                    • Wolf Star

                      Oooh knack x3 which games are you getting?? I was supposed to get Watch Dogs and I paid it full. But not it’s delayed. I’m thinking getting either Knack or AC4.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      Yeah I’m thinking of getting AC4 and Killzone

                    • Wolf Star

                      Awesome :) I can’t decide between the two now lol.

                    • DarkLegacy

                      It’s up to you on which game you’ll play on first. I’ll be playing AC IV first then Killzone

                    • Wolf Star

                      Hmm ok, ill see what they have at stores lol xD oh man I can’t wait ^^

      I have to wait for the episode to go free on crunchyroll. That and Beyond the Boundary.

      I don’t mind waiting a week to watch things legit free.

      • Kobracon

        Oh is that how it works? Well my net is quite bad for streaming so I download mostly. Good on you for being patient to be legit, seeing what I’ve seen, I don’t think I could have waited a week to watch eps 3

        • Elvick

          Or I could pay for a subscription, which… meh. Though it seems like the PS3 app requires you to have one to really use it, basically like a demo with limited selection of pre-selected stuff you can see there.

          And some anime is sub only… so far only uber popular stuff like Naruto and Bleach though.

          I like it though. Found a lot of awesome anime on there.

    My class this month had me produce a short film and try to get it as much exposure as possible. If the awesome community at Gematsu was able to help me with this, I’d be very grateful

    Like this comment so I know how many people came from here, and I can comment on the statistics in class on Thursday. If you liked it, share it with your friends! It would definitely help.

    Hope you’re all having a great week so far!

  • new_tradition

    Alright, I’m caving. I’m gonna buy Ace Attorney Dual Destinies at release. I went out and got an eShop card today to make sure I have enough money to buy the game and DLC case. Can’t wait ’til Thursday >.<

    (Maybe Gematsu staff can make the next image for Forum 67 AA-related, lol)

    EDIT: Well, dang it. I guess I missed the Capcom 30th sale on PSN. I didn't know it started last week. Bought a PSN card today and found out it was done *pouts*

    But I finally bought Persona 4 Arena, so I guess it works out, lol.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      “Maybe Gematsu staff can make the next image for Forum 67 AA-related, lol”

      Sure!

      By the way, watch out for tax on the e-shop. I had a crappy experience with my first e-shop purchase because of tax. I had the $30 promo credit (From Shin Megami Tensei IV and Fire Emblem) and had already added $10 so I would have $40 for Pokemon X. It ended up being $42 something with tax and I tried over and over again to let it charge my credit card the $2ish I lacked, it just gave me error after error. In frustration I clicked the add $10 thing… of course it worked. I ended up spending more than I wanted.

      I got really unlucky though. I also missed that Capcom sale. =/ Hard for me to keep up with PSN sales since I currently don’t have a PS3.

      • new_tradition

        Haha, I was only half joking, but if you do it, that would be awesome ;D
        Oh, you mean you HAD to add 10 dollars from your credit card, you couldn’t just add the 2+ you needed? Laaaaaame Nintendo, real lame >_>

        Taxes are super annoying in Canada. Having only experience with PSN, I was surprised there was taxes to be considered on the eShop. But luckily the system doesn’t care what locale you choose, so since Alberta charges the least amount of taxes in Canada, it’s best to set your location there (probably skew whatever statistics Nintendo collects, but whatever, lol). I actually have 50 bucks on my system now, so I should be good to cover the game plus the DLC case xD

        Only downside is that you can’t use a credit card that’s doesn’t correlate with the locale, so it’s all prepaid from now on (which, granted, I don’t mind much).

        It really is hard to keep track of some sales. I’m sure I’ve missed out on a lot of stuff for 3DS just because I don’t use it, plus plenty more things on PSN *sighs*

        (I actually half thought about just buying a Plus membership over buying some games. Maybe someday soon….)

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          Sounds like you are more prepared for the e-shop than I was, I suppose I could have quit and tried again the next day, but I really wanted my copy of Pokemon. Oh well.

          That sounds pretty complicated. I think digital purchases should be tax free. I think some digital stuff is?

          PS+? I’ve had it for a little while now. It’s pretty nice, the cloud service for uploads are really quite nice, especially if something crappy happens. I don’t have a PS3 currently, but my old PS3 was filled with tons of free stuff from Plus. It’s pretty cool.

      • PrinceHeir

        woo!

        i just bought Megaman 9 and 10 Plus all DLC(DLC Bundle FTW), Bionic Commando Rearmed 1 and 2, Dungeons And Dragon’s Chronicles of Mystara and Mamorukun Curse for $52!!

        not bad huh :D

        also bought a one year PS Plus membership

        so i expect a 20$ bonus credit in november since it’s still on the promotion they have :D

        spend 50$ get 10$ back, up to 100$ though the promotion is still in effect till the Oct 29th!

      hell yeah i already plan on buying it despite i still haven’t finished the first game.

      i’ll be doing a marathon this december and i’ll make sure i finished them in one month!

      while everyone waits for the game.

      listen to the new Objection theme which was being used in the trailers!

      soo addicting!

    • Elvick

      I don’t understand Capcom with that sale. TONS of their stuff wasn’t even on sale.

      I mean, do they have to pay Sony to put things on sale? Because, you’d think that they’d want to sell more software during their rough times with tons of sales on ALL their content possible. Not just some.

      I mean, they cut out the handheld market completely from the sale. Not a single PSP or PS Vita game. I don’t think there were PSone games either.

      Would have been a perfect time to sell Mega Man games and stuff. But nope.

      I don’t know, it makes no sense. The only reason it would is if the sales need to be paid for in some way to Sony to do.

      But Atlus and others have them far more frequently… so…

  • Gigus

    @zerorpg:disqus

    Hey, I was wondering if I can ask you something shipping related?

    • McPoo

      You can direct all shipping related queries to me, I’m Zero’s supervisor.

      • Gigus

        Pfft, sorry buddy. Its just a question. I’m not shipping anything to him lol. Anyways do you live in the US? Actually it wouldn’t matter if you live in the US though. My real question is when you order stuff from an online store that is stationed in your region, how long does it take for it to arrive in the mail?

        • McPoo

          I think your best bet would be looking at the help/FAQ section of the online store you’re ordering off, they usually give a decent estimate.

          • Gigus

            No, I’m not ordering anything. This has to deal with one of my t-shirt designs I’m submitting. The reason I ask this is because I’m worried that I’m turning in something for nothing, if the shirts won’t make it to their customers before halloween. Halloween is a less than a week away :|

            • McPoo

              Ah I see. I know on Qwertee the turnaround time is usually over a week, and their distribution centre is just a few hours south of me, not sure how much that helps you though.

              I assume you’ve got to factor in the time for them to get them printed as well as shipped out. It’s doable, I’ve had t-shirts designed, printed and shipped out in less than week for work before, but it’s down to the speed at which everyones working when you’re on such a tight timescale.

              • Gigus

                Hmm….. :/ I really don’t wanna turn it in if people can’t wear the shirt for Halloween when its more themed for that rather than daily wear.

                I really doubt regular nerds would wear my t-shirt (the one posted a few days back, jason minion) for daily wear XD. I really didn’t expect to take so long on the design D:

                • McPoo

                  Does it cost money to turn in a design? If not, I’d go for it anyway, people will still be in the spooky Halloween mood :)

                  • Gigus

                    It sorta does cost money but its coming from your profit lol. You get a 1% out of a shirt you sell lol. It may seem like they are cheating the artist but the artist keep the rights to shirt and can advertise them to other sites. You just gotta hope for a big sale if they choose your design.
                    I’ll be posting the shirt soon to see if people well respond to it. To be honest I’m actually hating it right now :/. Oh well, I’ll just wait and see if its a failure or not. Sorry for the broken english. Typing from a phone sucks lol, regardless on how awesome your phone is. (converted from an iphone 4 to a galaxy s4)

                    • McPoo

                      Definitely post it on here when it’s done!

                    • Gigus

                      I will.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      What’s up?

      • Gigus

        When you order stuff from an online store that is stationed in your region, how long does it take for it to arrive in the mail? It has to be items that are already released. A good example is amazon. This is concerning my t-shirt design. You can read the entire thing from me and McPoo down at the bottom. Since he lives somewhere in the EU. I wanna know how fast shipping is for you (US).

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          They usually have shipping choices to pick. On amazon for example, I have the prime service, so I get all of my stuff in 2 days or less.

          I suppose setting up expedited shipping would be a good choice, but faster shipping typically = more money.

          • Gigus

            Hmmm… well I’m hoping my shirt design gets chosen for people to get it b4 halloween. If not, wasted effort I guess.

            Oh I present to you minions of horror. The finised product. I think you didn’t see my teaser 5 days ago. oh well. I know you hate my drawings.

            *edit*
            Just joking by the way lol.

            • DarkLegacy

              “oh well. I know you hate my drawings”

              Don’t say that. I think your drawings are awesome even better than mine when I was at HS

              • Gigus

                Lulz. Thanks and I’m just joking with zero lol. Now the question is, “would you were the shirt”? I’ve actually turned in my drawing to a T-shirt site and I’m hoping they choose it.

                • DarkLegacy

                  I will since it’s cool but how much will it be for a shirt with your drawings on? just asking lol

                  • Gigus

                    depends on teefury, qwertee, riptapparel, and shirtpunch. I’ll be updating people here in the open forums if my designs ever get chosen. So far I’ve gotten so many rejection letters recently with previous designs XD.

                    I’ve been showing people my concepts here a few months back. I use you guys as feedback to see if people like it or not. So far, I have received positive comments but I am waiting on someone to give me critical feedback. I’m open to constructive criticism but I’ve only been given one downvote. It doesn’t really help me find out what they didn’t like about my drawing if they don’t say anything lol. It just discourages me XP.

                    If you have any suggestions, comments, or design ideas you’d like to see me draw up. Please, let me know. As of right now, I’m really taking in any request but I’m still open to hearing them :).

                    • DarkLegacy

                      One downvote for showing a drawing on here? I got to say, the person who downvoted you must have not been good at drawing cool art like you did

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              I love it. I’m a big fan of the Despicable me movies, love the minions.

              The idea is great, it totally seems like something they would do on Halloween. =)

    so, just in case ya’ll didn’t know, in case you’re going to get a PS4 at some point, but won’t get one on launch, you can buy the controller and it actually works with your PS3s!

      I finished Ep 1 the other day, it was fantastic. It lacked the urgency of some of TWD’s decisions, but it was still an intriguing tale.

      I especially like Bigby Wolf. With TWD I felt a bit like my Lee had to be a good guy, because of Clem. With TWAU, there’s no sense of obligation to be ‘good’, so I had a good mix of responses and picked them based on what I wanted to do, not what I thought would have a positive impact on my relationship with Clem.

        I’m going to hold out for a possible retail release. I should get to finishing up TWD though. xP

    Cool video about the remote play co-op with PS4.
