          Pretty fun, so far.

          The size of the world is ridiculous though. I’m not even very far in and getting around is already crazy. The one thing a sequel to this game won’t need is a larger map. Different locations, sure, but shit this game is big. Mounts are a must for the next one.

    • OverlordZetta

      Stuff I got off 14 for 14 while I wait for the new DBZ game. The Walking Dead is pretty cool.

      TTT2, a little bit of GT6 every now and again, BF4, and as of 10 minutes ago, another playthrough of Asura’s Wrath :D

    • Elvick

      Toukiden demo.

    • McPoo

      I’ve done the first five or six missions of DmC, which I’m quite enjoying now. I was a bit bored at first, as these types of tame don’t interest me anymore, but I’m quite enjoying the story and setting, so will stick with it.

      Me and my girlfriend are playing through Young Justice Legacy slowly. It’s pretty crap, but I’m a fan of the show and wanted to support it.

      I’m also in the last quarter of Fire Emblem Awakening, so want to get the done so I can sell it in.

      And of course, playing Shadowrun almost daily ;)

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    At first i was thinking “Kaname Ohgi” from Code Geass, but once i quickly noticed that it wasn’t him.

  • bloodiOS

    Anyone think it might be possible for the Vita 3000 to have Triluminos display (and X-Reality Engine)? I mean, it would still be a step-down from the 1000’s OLED screen but certainly would be step-up from the 2000’s IPS screen.

    • $18114340

      While they’re at it, they should put built-in HDMI-out and Dual Shock 3 support… hell even the PSP had video out and software controller support. Of course they won’t do this, because then the Vita TV would be even more useless than it already is.

      • Budgiecat

        And Minovsky particle effects

        • $18114340

          Nah, Sony will come up with their own proprietary bullshit format for that and include it instead.

          • Budgiecat

            Will the newer housing be made up of Super Alloy Z?

            • $18114340

              Whatever they can do to jack up the cost.

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

                Yeah, like they jacked up the cost from PS3 to PS4 while making it better in the process. Oh wait…

                • $18114340

                  My sarcasm detector’s broken, you’re going to have to help me with this one.

                    >Whatever they can do to jack up the cost.

                    Apparently that’s not always true since the PS4 is more powerful than the PS3, yet it cost less than the PS3 did on launch day.

                    • $18114340

                      It’s also not true that Sony is manufacturing a Vita 3000 using Super Alloy Z.

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

                      Duh? Just replace ‘Super Alloy Z’ with whatever new technological term which makes it better and it’s the same principle.

                    • $18114340

                      And what principle would that be?

    Microsoft on 1080p/60fps — “These little things get way overblown”

    http://www.gamespot.com/articles/microsoft-on-1080p-60fps-these-little-things-get-way-overblown/1100-6417326/

    So yeah, not having 1080p and 60fps is something overblown according to Penello, why don’t they just admit that they have an inferior console?

    Reminder:

    Final Fantasy XV will run at 60fps/1080p meanwhile Xbone version will run at 30fps/900p

    • Six

      Why on Earth would Microsoft admit they have a weaker console? They need to keep their mouth shut.

    • bloodiOS

      They should just stop talking about it, seeing that the more they mention it the worse it’s gonna get. I mean, if the difference between 1080p and 720p or 60fps and 30fps isn’t that big. Why spend $500 on the XBO just for some exclusives? Why not just stick with the Xbox 360 until the other console a price drop? After all, even on the Xbox 360, everything can be displayed at 1080p (with the use of the built-in scaler) and 60Hz.

      • Six

        Uh… the Xbox 360 isn’t going to be supported forever? That is why you upgrade.

        Ah, you edited…

        If you are into graphics, then you need to be a PC gamer. They are already moving on to 4k in some instances.

        • bloodiOS

          I’m trying to say what is the point of them promoting next-gen if they’re just gonna undersell the differences. I mean, yeah, ports look better on the PS4, but whatever, stop talking about it and people will talk less about it. Instead of wasting time paying attention to how people are discussing the differences between the XBO and PS4, they can focus a whole lot more on talking about delivering new games, new contents such and such and draw people’s attention into that instead.

          EDIT: I fixed the previous comment immediately after I posted it because the wording was rather confusing. It only took about 10 seconds and that was before your reply was posted, so blame Disqus’s lagginess if you didn’t see the changes right away.

          • Six

            Certain people at Microsoft definitely need to learn to keep their mouths shut.

            But sadly, it’s really a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation for MS.

            People don’t just dislike Microsoft, they despise them.

            • $18114340

              But they fired Don “Your Game Doesn’t Need To Be Good” Mattrick! Surely that counts for something.

            • Gariya

              You and Tetsu are missing the point.

              PC gamers frequently shout “YOU SHOULD GAME ON PC, LIKE OH MAN, YOU SHOULD BECOME A PC GAMER, MAN! HURRY UP! I DON’T GIVE A SHIT IF YOU PREFER THE EXCLUSIVE LIBRARY CONSOLES CAN OFFER AND HAE NO INTEREST IN PC GAMES, JUST BUILD A GAMING PC ALREADY” over and over and over and over and fucking over again.

              You almost never see console gamers tell PC gamers to “GET A CONSOLE”.

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

                …Why would you listen to people like that in the first place? Pfft. As if they have a say in what I like. Fuck that.

                I’ll go play a damn Atari if I feel like it. Nobody tells me what I “should” do when it comes to gaming and nobody else should listen to people trying to tell you what you should do (or in this case, play) either.

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

            The same reason people rush to get a console even though it doesn’t have “all the games” either?

    been awhile since i’ve been active in this site :)

    just finished my Winter class and honestly i never screwed up a final just like that.

    my grade is around 81/100 so maybe B-.

    still it pisses me off that the teacher’s lesson look NOTHING like the ones being asked in the test.

    oh well at least it’s over and now spring starts this monday “-___-

    anyways i also notice some sleezy cat managed to dethroned me in the community page. oh well i’ve been holding it off since 2012 so i don’t really mind being beaten this year.

    still i kinda wish Zero has taken the position :P

    • kirby755

      I’m still going through my Winter Quarter and Honestly it is Brutal. Even though I’m not afraid of Speech anymore atleast. I can count that as a positive atleast. 7 more weeks till its over for me.

      • PrinceHeir

        i wonder why winter classes are long for you?

        for me it’s only 2 and a half weeks and three days a week for 6 hours.

        oh well, to be honest i didn’t really learned alot aside from a lesson or two.

        good luck in your class though!

    • $18114340

      Looking at most of these, it’s understandable why they were removed… if you ignore the fact that the majority of the cards in the game are still intact. Seriously, I’m having a little trouble believing these cards are so much worse than all of the other cards in the game that they had to be censored.

    • OverlordZetta

      I’d be mostly indifferent if they hasn’t taken out cards of the main girl. I’ll tolerate the rest, fine, but you can’t leave the leading lady as is?

      Why even bring the game over at that point?

        yup i saw that with thailand and how just bikini girls getting censored left and right.

        for me i’m good with reading and writing as well as understanding the sentence structures. i just need to know more vocabulary and other styles of writing to get a more grasp of the whole thing.

    • Kobracon

      pftHAH! So what? Are those cards like…super gimped now since they can’t even get to their higher level forms?

    Volume 1 of Star Savior has released today. For those that haven’t been keeping up with this, it’s basically a light novel (without the illustrations anyway, but this is the most accurate thing I know to call it since the word count and such qualify for ‘light novel’ standards) I’ve been working on. It has science fiction, war, drama, and action.

    You can either read it online on Wattpad (the synopsis is included before you reach chapter 1) or you can download the zip file below and read it in PDF format. Either way, I’d prefer input on it whenever you’re finished. Thanks!

      I remember seeing that gal in your avatar back in the PS4 conference in E3. I forgot the name of the game but all I know it’s an indie game.

        I’m not a South Park fan, so that game does nothing for me. :P Still, Obsidian is a great developer and I hope the game is fun and successful.

              Wasteland 2 is my most-anticipated game of 2014. Even though I’ve been playing it for a month in beta, it’s not a complete game and it’s just giving me a taste of the awesomeness to come. I can’t wait. <3

              • Six

                Glad to hear that game is coming along well. I’m more excited for Tides of Numenera, personally.

                Have you heard anything about Divinity: Original Sin? I know it’s up on that Early Access thing, but I’m not really into the idea of paying for something that isn’t finished.

                I’ve got to say that Hyper Light Drifter holds the crown for my most anticipated indie game tho.

                • DarthBrian

                  Other than it being on my Steam wishlist, I don’t really know that much about Divinity. Didn’t follow the game development at all, but it’s an RPG so that’s all I need to know. :p

                  Hyper Light Drifter looks pretty awesome, yeah.

                      Were we only listing RPGs? I just mentioned it because it’s an indie game.

                      re:RPGs, also looking forward to Shroud of the Avatar by Lord British, creator of the Ultima series. Looking forward to it because Ultima IV is my favorite game of all time pretty much and I’m hoping this will be a return to form for him. I can play the early launch releases, but I’ve been holding back. That’s a game I don’t particularly want to play in beta. I want the full experience when it’s fully released. I don’t think they’ve announced a release window yet other than 2014.

                    • Six

                      Not only RPGs. I’m a huge fan of indie games in general. I could list about 20 right now that I’m excited for on Vita alone. :P

                      Honestly, I’m a huge noob when it comes to CRPGs, but they are something I really want to get into with the revival they’ve been having on Kickstarter.

                      These games like Wasteland 2, Pillars of Eternity and Torment seem to understand that there is a “role” in “role playing” beyond customizing your character.

                    • DarthBrian

                      Yeah, made by the people who made those kinds of games and know why they were popular in the first place. Brian Fargo, Chris Avellone, Tim Cain, Josh Sawyer, etc. etc. They are the best.
                      The other thing that sets their games apart is the writing. Compare the writing in Fallout 3 by Bethesda to Fallout New Vegas by Obsidian and the difference is pretty big between the two as of writing quality and quantity. And Obsidian only had a year to make New Vegas. lol
                      Wasteland 2 is the only one of those 3 to be sure to release in 2014 though. I think Pillars and Torment are both 2015 releases. Not 100% sure on Pillars though.

                      I love Bethesda RPGs, I really do, but I can only hope that this slew of new WRPGs can give them the kick in the ass they need.

                      I would love Bethesda RPGs again if they would put as much effort into their new games as they did on Morrowind. Still one of my favorite games but everything they’ve done since then has been lazy. Like you said, someone needs to give them a kick in the ass. :p

                      I’m kinda glad I waited on that, since they are going to release a bundle with both the game and the expansion for 25 bucks.

                      Hopefully I’ll be done with The Banner Saga by then.

                    • DarthBrian

                      I really need to buy Banner Saga at some point. But it’s $24.99. I think I’m gonna have to wait for a Steam sale. I feel bad though because I want to show them support since those King assholes are suing them for the name ‘Saga’. Idiots. :|

                    • Six

                      I just bought it recently, so it should go on sale any day now. That’s usually how these things work. :P

                      The whole thing with King is why I bought it. It’s disgusting to see indie developers treated like that.

                      Especially by guys who just reskinned Bejeweled and added in microtransactions.

                    • DarthBrian

                      Not to mention their Kickstarter launched before Candy Crush was released. If only Stoic had trademarked Banner Saga. But hindsight is 20/20 I suppose. How did they know someone was going to be a giant stupid dick? :(

  • bloodiOS

    It’s still going to be another week before the exact result comes out but after the bronchoscopy, the doctor said there is 80% chance that my grandfather is on the last stage of lung cancer. I suppose the news didn’t hit me quite as hard as I thought it would. As a matter of fact, it still doesn’t feel quite real yet. My grandfather always seems so damn fit and healthy though, so it’s just so strange that this just hit out of nowhere. I guess you never know when shits will hit you…

    • $18114340

      A relative with cancer never feels real. My condolences.

    • kirby755

      I feel your pain there, I mean I lost my grandfather in November last year to Pancreatic Cancer there. It didn’t hit me hard until Christmas. The only you can do there is stay strong.

      • bloodiOS

        Actually, that’s what I’m concerned about right now since I’m not feeling anything from this at all…

        • kirby755

          That’s the thing that always makes us afraid. Not knowing when sadness hits you hard. It will always get you when you notice the one person is missing from the Big Picture.

        • GhostNomad

          Speaking from personal experience, maybe you’re in denial without quite realizing it. When my grandfather was diagnosed with a failing heart, it just didn’t go through. I refused to believe that there could be anything wrong with him because I was so used to having him around and seeing him always happy. Hell, he even brought me along to hear him sing every now and again.

          For a short while he was doing fine and then all of a sudden he was gone. I still couldn’t feel anything until the day after the funeral when I went to visit his grave. I didn’t cry, but that’s when it finally hit me. I sat down and didn’t have it in me to stand up for three and a half hours. After that it still took me an hour before I could move my feet and walk back home.

    • Elvick

      My grandpa died of prostate cancer last year.

      I know how you feel. Eventually I cried it out, while he was still alive. But, I haven’t cried at all since he died. I wasn’t able to go to his funeral though so maybe I would have there. (I live in Canada, he lived, and most of my family still live, in Kansas)

      I don’t know.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I’ve dealt with cancer deaths two times too many. I understand how you feel. Stay strong and best wishes to your grandfather. And stay positive. You never know if that 20% might outweigh the 80%.

    • Gigus

      I can somewhat relate to what ur going through. I lost my only brother about six years ago (posted his drawings on an open forum once). He died in a car accident. I couldn’t believe it happened because he finally turned his life around from the hard times he was going through. It felt so unreal that it happened. Right now, my brother in law just went through the same situation as you. He just lost his father to cancer two weeks ago……… anyways condolences. I’m actually choking up right now writing this. I really hope your grandfather can pull through though. Cancer and a death in the family is a terrible thing to go through.

    • PrinceHeir

      i don’t really know what to say though, i just hope you and your family stay strong in this ordeal.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      That’s some hard news to deal with. I’ll be sure and include your grandfather and you etc. in my prayers. I hope for the best, stay strong!

    • Anime10121

      Unfortunately, it seems like those are the people cancer loves to strike (the healthy ones, who’d otherwise have no other issues). I hope all goes well, because with a little hope and prayer, things can still change for the better.

    Yahoo: These are the Five Games that Could Win the Console War for PS4
    http://games.yahoo.com/news/5-games-could-win-console-war-ps4-153544905.html

    Choice quote:

    “Infamous: Second Son is the third game in the franchise, and the first to follow a character other than Cole McGrath. This time around, players will take control of Troy Baker, a deadbeat…”

    lmao

    • Six

      A F2P game from Capcom, inFAMOUS, The Order and two indie games that aren’t PS4 exclusive.

      Welp, shit. Everyone else should pack it up.

      • DarthBrian

        Well, it’s not like there are many games announced that they could choose from.
        And Octodad is going to sell better on PS4 than Transistor probably.
        Other than that, it’s a decent list. *shrug*

        • Six

          They should have at least used Rime and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. :P

          There’s also that new Uncharted, which is easily going to make every Sony fan cream their jeans once it’s shown.

          • DarthBrian

            Well, we don’t know much about Uncharted yet other than it’s an Uncharted game, but yeah. :p

    I started reading Akame ga Kill. Holy cow, this series is violent! There are also death flags everywhere. I bet almost everybody in the main cast will die. Also, I still don’t get why is Akame the titular character when 95% of the plot revolves around Tatsumi

    • bloodiOS

      As an excuse to let her survive all the way to the end perhaps?

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

    Just uploaded some Sakon gameplay. I’m in the process of uploading the rest of his story at the moment. I was all over the place in the first stage since his stance change takes some getting used to, lol. I do better with him in later stages :p

      Sakon plays like a faster Kotaro.

      By the way, is Kotaro in this game?

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

        Yes and he’s one of the playable characters.

        • Gariya

          Good to hear. He’s my fav.

    • futuristic_imagination

      Nice! I like the transitions in the game. I like how it went from main menu, fmv, character select menu, fmv, and fmv like for stage select.

      This game is getting ridiculous (in a good way), I’d lol at Masamune’s Engrish and the magnum boost! cutscene.

      So I got a question, is there install in this game?

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

        Actually, the install is different this time! Normally, you could just save it to the HDD, but this time they decided to go a different route. It’s rather noisy in the beginning from all the loading, but once you play for a couple of hours, it quiets down.

        Basically, it installs while you play. They also did away with manual saving, so now it auto saves after you complete every stage.

        EDIT: The only main problem I have with the game so far is that there aren’t as many enemies displayed at once any more. They seemed to tone that down for some reason.

        • futuristic_imagination

          Nice going for the Dynasty Warriors 7 installation. Everytime I play Sengoku Basara 3 (US ver.), it sounds like my ps3 is going to die.

          Less enemies? I thought they would be able to add more since there is an installation. I just hope there is a stage that is like Sekigahara: Intrusion. Then I would probably fine.

        • Kobracon

          I hear that alot, while they have reduced, the upside is they do alot more interesting things now ( the gattai’s) and somehow…I feel the stages are way more fun. A little smaller, but fun gimmicks that aren’t annoying and just going ballz out crazy.

          When the developers seem to be having fun with their game, so am I.

  • bloodiOS

    I’m planning to get this tungsten carbide ring with carbon fiber inlay, since it looks sorta cool (and cheap):

        Well, at least the shipping is consistent everywhere in the world, with a life-time warranty. It also looks highly desirable when seeing the gears in motion:

        • GhostNomad

          That video is mostly why I want one. I like to fidget when I’m bored, and the ring looks like the perfect amount of entertainment! Y’know, simple things amuse simple minds, that kinda stuff :P

    I really hate the material and money limit in the Toukiden demo. D:< Really kills my interest in continuing to play it. Will just wait for the final game, I suppose to finish up what's left. Have 3 quests left in the demo.

    • Cabulista

      to be honest even though it does give quite the level of nostalgia, as a game, it is really bad.

    • Budgiecat

      Half of me gets fueled with instant hate for yet another throwaway Mobage card game when they should be focusing on console versions but the other half thinks ‘maybe they’re making this to help fund for the potential console games and build interest’.

      But then the first half beat up the second half for thinking that Namco would actually put that much thought and vision into this…

  • bloodiOS

    I’m looking forward to watch RoboCop, The Son of God, Non-Stop, and The Wind Rises in February.

      Why wait until February to watch RoboCop? You’ve had plenty of time to watch it already. It’s been out since 1987.

      (don’t mind me, just being an ass because I hate reboots and I don’t think this one will be better than the original :p)

        “I hate reboots”.

        Oh. I thought you said “I hate robots”.

      • bloodiOS

        Well, I just want to check it out to know exactly why I like or hate it, depends on however it might turn out.

      • PrinceHeir

        well at least the new design looks amazing.

        it really reminds me of Raiden’s armor with a touch of classic style armor ^^

        Yeah the shopkeep said NEXT WEEK. Then the very next day, I get a call that its IN and I went today and got it. So good.

          • Kobracon

            As far as I can tell, there are no story branches like SB3 right? No red path or blue path. Just “Drama Route” and “Animated Route” and not everyone has both. Still confused at what the difference is with the blue named stages and the red named stages.

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

              Yeah, the only paths are red and blue, anime and drama respectively. As for the other stuff…

              Black background: Normal stage/standard rewards

              Red background: Outbreak stage/standard rewards with additional enhancements (basically, weapons with abilities)

              Purple background: Omen stage/books+exp are rewards

              Blue background: Derivation stage (occurs when Omen stage is ignored)/random rewards (sometimes good, sometimes normal)

              Blue background: Boss stage/weapon reward (one on one battle with a boss, shares the same background as Derivation though)

              • Kobracon

                Thanks! I have no idea how to get the max rewards on the one on one bosses. Just….how???

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

                  No idea. I’ve only participated in a handful of those for story purposes. I’m not really focusing on rewards at the moment.

        The Asian version is unpredictable at times… But one thing for sure, high chance of releasing both Japanese and English version separately on HK store and any others…

        If Sony Asia is really generous, they give special treatment on their Asian version like Chinese subs or Japanese dubs(Ex. FF13)… Freedom Wars is a Sony first party game so a good chance of that special treatment happening…

        Yeah, I’m on a real big tragedy kick right now; however, with that, I have to break it up with stuff that isn’t tragic.

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

      Anime to live action adaptations usually don’t go over well…

      • Budgiecat

        yeah I know but whens the Harlock CGI movie comin out?

        Also, the directors and writers always gotta change so much stuff in movie adaptations. Why?

        There was no Gatchaman vehicles (other than God Phoenix, which didn’t really look like classic GP and was missing the rd and blue motif), no group super attack, no different bird motifs for the uniforms (which I heard cost $40,000 each to make), no chubby Ryu, Joe didn’t have his gun (and I dont think he got to fire the bird missile he’s always so trigger happy for) and some strange plot twist with Berg Katse.
        First 15 minutes of the movie was pretty good though..then it went downhill from there…

  • McPoo

    Following on from my question about JRPG boss battle themes – is there a better main theme for a game with a fantasy setting than the Trine 2 theme?

    while i haven’t played any FPS games this gen, i’m really excited as hell for Destiny.

    it looks like it’s gonna be a freaking amazing game, with amazing special skills and guns to loot!

    http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2013/49/1386376689-destiny-brothers-in-arms-fan-art.jpg

    i don’t really play Halo alot, but i really enjoyed the first game on PC. for some reason the world really drew me with its scifi elements and awesome guns to boot.

    i haven’t been excited for an FPS game in a LOOONG time.

    the last FPS game i played was Team Fortress 2 on PC. clocked around 400+ hours. yes, 400 hours! it used to be my most played multiplayer game ever(now its Uncharted 3) i don’t know why i wasted my time playing this when i was my senior year here in the US.

    i stop playing since i got bored for playing too much, and now they added soo much shit that it ruined some of the balance of the guns and it has now become Hat Fortress 2.

    i also played Blacklight Retribution and the game is fun as hell just like TF2(love the taunts). i’ll probably play it on PS4 since my PC is shit and its only used for anime BD’s and such.

    i used to play Counter Strike, but that was a LOOONG time ago and i only watch my brother play it.

    so any FPS games that your excited? also any recommendations for an FPS games?

    • Six

      I’m really excited for Wolfenstein: The New Order, Serious Sam 4 and the console version of Shadow Warrior as they all represent a time before every FPS game decided it had to be like Halo.

      Also, there is the Vita version of Borderlands 2, if it ends up being any good.

      As for a few recommendations:

      Hard Reset
      Painkiller Black Edition

                      I just don’t understand this irrational hatred that fans of Japanese games have of western stuff, especially FPS games.

                      Me buying titles like Gears of War and Bioshock isn’t going to stop Square Enix or Falcom from making JRPGs.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      I was jesting, but I don’t understand the hatred for their existence either. I mean, I personally don’t like western games, but I also know the industry wouldn’t be any better without them than it is with them.

                      There are shitty games that come from Japan as well after all. A game being made in Japan doesn’t automatically make the game good. Just like a game being made in the west doesn’t automatically make it bad.

                      We all have different preferences, so we should like what we like and not give people shit for liking something different. Finding out why people act like that won’t resolve anything though. People who act like that are beyond the reach of civil discourse. It’s best to just leave them in their own little world.

      Titan falls my most anticipated, as I’m sure SOMEONE in my family’ll get an Xbone for it :P

      Not really a fan of Destiny yet, I’ll have to see a whole lot more, because right now, it just seems like an online only Halo (which I admit I loved, especially the first two), and I want mah single player experience too!

        just get the new Gundam ps3 Missing Link game

          Not really a fan of Gundam :(

          I tried to get into it, but just…couldnt.

          Also, aint that Japanese only? Only kinda games I import are fighting ones, as I’m not really missing out on much because they rarely have stories.

          • Budgiecat

            Well then get Gundam Extreme VS Full Boost. Thats a fighting game..

    • z_merquise

      If you’re in for nostalgia, then of course, really recommend the classic Doom games (Doom 1, 2 and Final Doom ; Doom 3? not so much)

      Other FPS I recommend is Bulletstorm, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, Serious Sam games (if you play games in PC). Bioshock: Infinite is good too and it’s free in PS+.

      • Six

        Doom 3 is a good game, don’t listen to him! :P Also, Doom 3 BFG Edition comes with both Doom and Doom 2.

        Also, there is this:

        http://www.amazon.com/The-Serious-Sam-Collection-Xbox-360/dp/B00C3MK9BS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1390693465&sr=8-1&keywords=serious+sam+collection

        • z_merquise

          I was so hyped in Doom 3 back when it was first revealed. I end being disappointed in the slow gameplay. That and the beloved Shotgun in Doom 3 doesn’t pack the punch like the old Doom games did.

          It’s a good game and I think the graphics especially at that time is very phenomenal. But I just had so much expectations for the game at that time.

          • Six

            It’s going to be really interesting how Doom 4 turns out. Hopefully they’ll be able to meet at the middle with a combination of fast-paced gameplay and horror.

    • Elvick

      Most FPS I was excited for are already out (Killzone Mercenary/Shadow Fall). And I fell out of love with Halo after Reach. Reach was perfect for me. Felt like the perfect place for me to part ways with the series, along with Bungie.

      And based on the very mixed (gearing on negative) views I’ve seen on Halo 4, I’m glad.

      Other than that, I can’t think of any future FPS I am looking forward to. I don’t really like online-only games and that seems to be happening a lot lately. I’d be more interested in Destiny if it weren’t offline.

      I’m more into Third Person Shooters atm.

      Edit; Oh wait, I’m looking forward to seeing how Borderlands 2 turns out on PS Vita. Not a traditional FPS, with all the RPG elements, but heh.

      And I’m curious to see how Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition turns out on PS Vita as well.

  • PrinceHeir

    i’ve been meaning to ask, but how much speed and bandwidth your internet you have guys?

    for me i have around dl speed for 58.87Mbps and upload speed for 29.12Mbps according to this test.

    http://oi42.tinypic.com/2z57xoy.jpg

    however it’s unlimited bandwidth so that’s HUGE for me and a deciding factor

    i also ask for people who are or have been to Japan if they have unlimited bandwidth? i know they have an average around 100+ Mbps, but i want to know if they have unlimited bandwidth as well??

      Though I’m sure I’ll at least “like” it, though I’m fairly certain with Light being the main focus (pun not intended), it’ll be far less enjoyable than XIII-2 (which I loved), guess it’ll all depend on how Caius and Yeul are handled, and how much they’re in the game…

    I disputed it this time though and it’s still silent. Well, hopefully it will be resolved soon.

  • futuristic_imagination

    I’m finally back here, after a 2 months of absence! (shoot can’t believe I was gone that long!)

    I’ve been very busy with my last semester of college before graduating. I got a lot of school work and i also have an internship too. So my gaming time has been very limited.

    Enough about that… during the Christmas break my cousin let me borrow his ps1 games and now I’ve been playing Legend of Dragoon (again), and I finally get to play and not get scared of Parasite Eve and Parasite Eve 2. PE and PE2 scared me so much that I don’t even remember playing it. Mind you I was around 9 or 10 yrs old and was new to the scary factor of the games. After seeing the monster transformation in the two games I was like… (drop the controller) Nope! I’m done! Looking back at it I missed out on a lot of good games!

    Anyways how is everyone! :)

    • PrinceHeir

      welcome back!!

      i need to play PE2, after losing my save for PE1(due to my HDD got deleted and i store my saved there instead of backing it up on my PC) it drained my motivation to play the PE2.

      i should go ahead and play that for sure!!

      same thing, i played MGS2 around 12 years old and it got me mindfuck on some of the moments like the codec conversations with the colonel and such.

      • futuristic_imagination

        You need to play it!… Though it’s weird to see how the series changed from RPG to Action RPG.

        I felt the same when I played MGS2… I was like wtf, what is going on! I didn’t really understand it until replaying it in highschool.

    • Pyrofrost

      Welcome back, and I hope you enjoy your PS1 games!

      Looks like your playing some good ones too. It hasn’t been long since I was on a PS1 kick myself.

          Oh! I’ll be sure to check it out.

    • Gigus

      Lulz I used to be like that with horror games. When I saw my brother play re2, I ran out the door when the zombie dogs were jumping through the window. After actually trying to play it, I noticed I was missing out. You should play the clock tower series.

      • futuristic_imagination

        Hmm Clock Tower series. Thanks I’ll keep that in mind. I read a small summary and it seems interesting.

        • Gigus

          Siren blood curse on ps3 is pretty good. Dead space 1and 2 are pretty decent (stay away from 3). Hmm…. fatal frame series on ps2. That’s pretty much all I can think of

  • bloodiOS

    Rather unsurprising that Kingdom Come: Deliverance is generating more funding and also at a quicker rate in comparison to Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians… *sigh*

    • Six

      I think many are unsure about Unsung Story due to the vagueness of Matsuno’s involvement.

      If he was straight-up directing the game, I have no doubt that it would have hit a million by now.

      • bloodiOS

        That and another problem is that all they’ve shown so far are pretty much people talking and concept arts. There isn’t any actual footage showing how the game looks and what the gameplay is like in motion. Project Phoenix also encountered the same problems and the campaign ended up not generating as much as the developers had hoped it would. Kingdom Come: Deliverance has not only shown-off its graphics but also what its gameplay is like and I think that’s why more people are motivated to back it.

        • Six

          Given that Unsung Story is going to be a thing whether the Kickstarter succeeds or not, you’d think they’d have something, anything, to show.

          While Matsuno is revered in the gaming community, Playdek is not, so they need to prove why we should part with our money for this project.

          I think a lot of it boils down to the pitch videos. Look at Hyper Light Drifter, for example.

          They wanted $27k and they ended up with almost $650k. Their video was no fluff and no promises. It was a game.

          • Budgiecat

            i’m actually more interested in Soul Saga, Reborn, and that Western turn based game forget the name of it at the moment than this…

            • Six

              I wouldn’t touch Reborn with a ten foot pole. That shit looks so shady.

              Soul Saga looks neat tho, if you are into that kind of thing.

              • Budgiecat

                Too soon to dismiss…

                • Six

                  They claimed they’d deliver a console RPG running on both PS3 and PS4 using both Unreal Engine 3 and UE4 for $200k.

                  Yeah, I don’t buy that for a second.

    • Budgiecat

      Huh? Maybe because its an actual dedicated console game and not some meh mobile/PC game thats trying to spread out everywhere.

      That and they’re using Matsuno’s involvement as a marketing tool, and people arent even sure what his role is with it.
      Just because you tag on a known Japanese developer doesn’t mean its instantly gonna be good. No hype from me for that Yaiba game just cause Inafune’s involved…

      If it were a PS4 specific AAA game headed and created solely by Matsuno in conjunction with say Mistwalker, then you’d have more people’s attention….

      • Six

        This is another issue. Japanese gaming fans have a violent allergy to mobile games.

        Also, Kingdom Come isn’t being funded by Kickstarter. They are using Kickstarter as a way to build attention and to convince someone to invest in their game, an investor who is already lined up and ready to go once they can prove that people want it.

        A AAA console game on Kickstarter would be impossible, especially a JRPG.

        • Budgiecat

          Well unless they go about the same approach that Kingdom Come is doing…

          • Six

            But who would invest in a AAA JRPG?

            Matsuno would be better off just going to Mistwalker, yanking the Gooch away from his iPhone and giving Nintendo a call.

            • Budgiecat

              bad call to make. Nintendo fans only care about MarioMetroidZeldaKirbyDonkey Kong you know that. And then there’s Reggie…

              • Six

                But they seem more than eager to jerk off X any chance they get.

                • Budgiecat

                  Only as a defense tactic to people who say to them there’s no RPG’s for Nintendo Wii U

                  • Six

                    Eh… I’ve seen it used more as a defense to prove that the Wii U “is totally a next-gen game machine guys!”, but yeah, you are probably right.

                • Anime10121

                  I think those are more likely the non-Nintendo fans that fap to X at every instance (myself included, well minus the fappin part), as it and Bayonetta are the main reasons I bought a Wii U. Smash Bros is a nice addition, but I havent previously bought any Nintendo console exclusively for Smash (I want a console Kirby though)…

                  • Six

                    Gotta have something to fap to, I guess. Nintendo needs to start delivering, because as it stands, the Wii U is the biggest waste of money I have ever spent.

                    We need release dates for Bayonetta 2, Smash Bros and Mario Kart, and at least a release window for Hyrule Warriors.

                    My fellow Platinum fans can trumpet The Wonderful 101 all they want, and Nintendo faithful can bang on about 3D World until the cows come home, but it just isn’t good enough.

                    This thing has been an embarrassment to anyone who isn’t a hardcore Nintendo fan.

                    • Anime10121

                      Yep, all true, however, I’ll give them til the end of this year before I can say that the thing has honestly completely failed or not, as it usually takes until sometime in the second year for any new console to deliver the good stuff (happened for the PS2, 360, PS3, 3DS, etc). I’ve always bought my consoles a bit too early, so I’ve learned to be patient with stuff like that.

                      So I’m hopeful they’ll (the big N) be able to turn things around to be a little better by the end of this year (although I’m worried since X, Bayo2, and Smash were all given 2014 release dates last year and NONE of them have received any kind of updates as of yet besides Smash)…

                    • Six

                      I can only hope that the situation they are in now will convince them to try new things, or at least bring back some old IP.

                      Playing to the Nintendo loyalists clearly hasn’t worked. If it isn’t Mario, then they just don’t care.

                      I think Nintendo has an investor Q&A/meeting/whatever at the end of the month, so hopefully something will come out of that. Iwata definitely has some explaining to do.

                    • Budgiecat

                      lol I convinced my friend to get a Wii U during Christmas when he was just gonna get a used Wii…was not too happy spending close to $400 when he was preparing to spend under a 100 and theres barely any games and the PS4 is now in stock…hope he’s not pissed at me haha

    If Sony keeps making Hollywood style games and don’t do anything with it’s propretiary IPs like Wild Arms, Rougue Galaxy etc. I may consider skipping this new gen completely.

    My PS2 library is way more robust than the PS3 had been. I don’t see the trend changing so I may eventually clopletely move to the PC and stay playing MMOs forever.

    Also I see that the only turn base RPGs only stay in JP like the last Legend of heroes and the only ones that came are a bit moeblob without a epic story.

    I also need the SHMUP genre to revive and it will take more than Resogun to revive it and things don’t sound so good when Sidequest Studios say that Soldner X2 sold badly. I think that they set expectations high.

    Any I’ll give it 2 years to announce something that I want. Not creating games that I want to play is a no buy from me.

      I’m going to just assume that the term “dude-bro” is now used for every game that isn’t from Japan.

          Yeah, that is definitely an issue with a lot of Sony’s first party stuff. Though, to be fair, it’s an issue with most AAA games these days.

          I haven’t watched Space Dandy btw, but the logic of a ‘zombie’ robot makes sense to me with my last comment’s thought process.

          • kirby755

            But robot zombies are just as bad as normal zombies… no…. wait… that’s even worst. They would be hard to destroy and annoy as hell sense it would mean every machinery would want to kill us.

    I tried to not buy any mobile games, but I couldn’t resist Om Nom. Cut the Rope 2 is so awesome. Also decided to get Rayman: Fiesta Run and it’s super awesome too. These are how mobile games should be… and sequels. :P

    Outside these two (or future installments) I can’t see my buying mobile games though.

    Famitsu: Monster Hunter 4G has been announced for the 3DS, coming out Fall 2014. Save data can be carried over from MH4 to the new game. The other one hasnt even stopped selling yet, damn, capcom sure has found their money maker

    Link: http://www.famitsu.com/news/201401/26047057.html
    Edit: Heres the Teaser Trailer (from Siliconera),
    Unfortunately no WiiU version was announced for this one (MH3G had a WiiU version, thanks @Auragar)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=QxFcG3Zsdm8

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Should mention there was no Wii U version announced.

      • shogunknight

        Not really suprising, since the previous installment was on 3ds. Might have been a hit title for the WiiU though

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Monster Hunter 3G was released on both.

          • shogunknight

            Oh yeah, forgot about that one. The previous installment I was actually referring to was Monster Hunter 4 on 3ds

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              I know, I was saying though that the previous “G” version got a release on both.

              • shogunknight

                Ah i see, you have a very valid point…..shit, that sucks

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

                Speaking of G… I wonder if they plan on bringing any more of these to PS3 like they did with Frontier G last year.

                • shogunknight

                  Frontier G was the only one they brought to PS3, i think the WiiU has more MoHun titles than the PS3. Im not too confident that they will consider a PS3 MoHun 3G release. If they consider it, it may be a Japan only release. My own question is why frontier G was released on PSV and not any other MoHun game (3G for example). Better than none i guess

                  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

                    “Why a 6 year old MMO like Frontier even considered at all?” is what I would have asked… I wonder if Phantasy Star Online 2 has anything to do with their decision to make Frontier G…

                    • shogunknight

                      Haha, they probably are trying it out to see the success rate of games release as an MMO on the vita. TBH Considering the explosive success MoHun4 has on 3ds (in japan only), i doubt capcom would ever release another MoHun game on a PS platform

                    • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

                      Releasing on other platforms sure helps to determine if an MMO is really successful on the Vita… /s

                      At this point and time, I doubt Capcom even cares about the PS platform…

                    • shogunknight

                      Well, were talking about one handheld that currently has sold about 42 million units worldwide versus the other with 7 million units sold worldwide. They also have a valid proof that 3ds platform is a viable business decision (sales of MoHun 3G & 4). Then there might be the point that dev cost is cheaper on the 3DS than Vita….yeah, we wont be seeing a mohun on PS Platform :(

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

                    Not the only one, no. They brought Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD to PS3 as well. So, there could be hope for another release in the future. I wouldn’t put all my eggs in one basket, but the possibility is there.

      • icecoffemix

        I still don’t understand the mentality of platform exclusive from Jap developers. It does make sense for some console like Wii U or X360 in Japan but for console with huge install base (PS3) or growing one with the install base willing to buy 3rd party (Vita), it’s downright bizzare.

        Yes, this may look like port begging post but I could care less if MH coming out in x platform. I’m genuinely curious of their thought process.

        • Budgiecat

          There is no thought process when it comes to Crapcom

          • icecoffemix

            To be fair, this seems to be thought process of many Jap publisher and it goes both way (why no Toukiden, GE or RO on 3DS?). Yet funnily enough they’re not adverse to making non-portable game into multiplatform, and Capcom is actually one of the pioneer for it (Onimusha 3, DMC 3 on PC, however shiet the port were).

            • Budgiecat

              When I say no thought process, I’m referring to examples like why the hell is Monster Hunter on XBox 360 only in Japan.. Wtf sense does that make, 360 is a dead console over there. And then they put it on PS3/Vita but dont localize. And they have an HD MH game for PS3 which they didn’t localize. But they’ll localize a Wii U MH when the Wii U has a smaller user base than the PS3.
              And of course there’s Basara which they’ve always done a shit job of marketing to the West when DW does well there.
              And like GE, RO and Toukiden, MH started on Sony handhelds and home consoles….

              • icecoffemix

                Touche

                It’s almost like they don’t want money, almost. I wouldn’t believe you if you told me that since it’s Capcom. :P

                • Budgiecat

                  Well they’re certainly not swimming in money right now. I dont know who the fuck is the moron running that company…

                  • icecoffemix

                    My impression is that they were trying too hard to find that next COD (i.e. annual cash cow) instead of going steady with their IP and improving upon them, even if it’s slow earner.

                    Throw money to unproven western developer’s because their last IP doesn’t make enough money (even though it was successful).

                    Change established series mechanic to appeal to more people while alienating their core fanbase.

                    All the while pissing off their fanbase with shady practice like on-disc DLC, extra extra extra edition, and sending dormant IP to trash bin or worse, downright rape them (BOFVI).

                  • Omega_Shiro

                    I find it odd that they DLC the heck out of some games but dont do well at the moment with anything

              • TalesOfBS

                And a lot of other games started on nintendo consoles and handhelds and then moved to other platforms. What is your point?

                Ms probably paid for the 360 game hoping it would increase sales. Nintendo probably did the same and paid capcom to localize mh3u since they needed (and still need) more games.

                • Budgiecat

                  So if thats the case, why would M$ only push for Japanese localization of MH and not abroad? Heck its not even in Korea, home of MMOs, and I know Microsoft positioned themselves there.

                  And if thats the case also for Nintendo, why not push Capcom to make a MH4U for Wii U?

                  And why would Capcom butt heads with Sony for a MH3G HD PS3 localization when they have no problems playing ball with Sony on all their other localized games? Certainly they can use the extra money as they are struggling.

                  Capcom is just a bunch of dumbasses

                  • TalesOfBS

                    it’s capcom, the only thing i can assure you is that there is money behind it.

    Hey Tetsuya,

    You ever play the SD Gundam SRPG series? I always used to ignore it for SRW but was thinking of giving one of them a go. Maybe G Generation Overworld. Heard the mechanics of play are a bit different…

    http://www.big-metto.net/LetsPlay/GGenWorld/Part38/(15).jpg

    • Kobracon

      I heard they aren’t bad. Only prob is that its just gundam…

      • Budgiecat

        Yeah thas kinda why I never really looked into them. It does seem that with just Gundam being in it, it would stand a better chance at localization though had Bandai had any faith. I think there was a localized SD Gundam game for the PS2 but it was an action game..

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

      I tried to play one of them on PSP, but ugh… I just couldn’t get past the SD stuff, lol. It just looks so childish. It didn’t seem like a bad game, per se, but eh… Maybe SRW has spoiled me.

      • Budgiecat

        Yeah. Well there’s Seed Generation of CE and Shin Super Robot Wars which wasn’t SD. Neither was MS Gundam Perfect Year War for PS1. Or the Scramble Commander series. Or Sunrise Heroes or Battle of Sunrise…
        Or The Great Getter Robo War and Aura Battler Dunbine SRPG’s for PS1…

        Interesting that you give SRW a pass despite it being chibi as well.
        You ever play the 3D SRW games? (SRW @ for DC,SRW GC, SRW NEO, SRW XO etc)

        Guess you’d have hated SD Gundam Scad Hammers then lol

        http://static.gamespot.com/uploads/scale_super/gamespot/images/2006/351/reviews/771734-933003_20061218_001.jpg

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

          They’re not really “chibi” in the sense that SD portrays them as. They look a bit taller during fighting animations, which is important. It was just hard to take something like Hi-Nu seriously when it looks like I can crush it in the palm of my hand, lol.

          EDIT: Oh and I didn’t play the 3D SRW games. I thought about importing one with my JP 360, but the game looked terribad.

          • Budgiecat

            Well thats what SD Gundam Generation series does as well so its just weird you pointed out the SD’ness of it but not SRW…

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

              I don’t really view SRW as SD, honestly. If I did, I wouldn’t have a problem playing the SD Gundam games =3=

              They look SD on the map itself, but once they attack, they look a bit bigger than the units in SD Gundam.

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

                Granted, that’s not to say that they come even close to their anime counterparts since some of them are massive, but they don’t look like capsule toys either, lol.

              • Budgiecat

                Yeah but thats what I’m saying: The SD Gundam Generation series does the same thing really

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

                  Okay? ._.

                  So, why are we talking about this then if we seem to agree here?

                  • Budgiecat

                    Because your first response said you brushed them off because they were chibi

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

                      SD/chibi/etc.

                      Yeah. The proportions are different in SRW games during fighting animations. That’s what makes it more enjoyable for me.

                      They don’t need to be 3D on the field like in Masou Kishin.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Its not really different though thats my point; you seem to keep missing that. I’ve been playing SRW since SRW4 back on the SNES and SRW F Final for PS1. Its always been SD (aside from Shin SRW PS1 and Masou Kishin) and yeah at times they shift to full size in some of their grander animations but SD Gundam G Generation does the same thing…

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

                      No… SD Gundam keeps the proportions rather small for all of their units, even during animations, lol. Again, if there wasn’t a difference, I wouldn’t have a problem with it. However, there is, so I don’t enjoy SD Gundam.

                      It was hard enough going through the first couple of stages on the PSP game (G Generation or something like that?) without laughing whenever I saw the units attack. It was more comical than serious.

                      When playing SRW, I can actually take the guys seriously when they attack, but with SD Gundam… I might as well watch toys fight.

                    • Budgiecat

                      I wonder which one you played as there’s several and the attack animations have improved over the years…

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

                      Depends on what you consider “improved”, I guess. Either way, I’m more hyped for whatever new SRW is coming in the future (in this case, Z3) as opposed to whatever SD Gundam has to offer, despite enjoying the units in the franchise.

                      We’ll just leave it at that.

                    • Budgiecat

                      oh well tthis looks pretty cool to me

    love the comedy and flair of the show. i might even buy the bundle manga on rightstuf right now!

    though i don’t like how some of the rich people need certain high standards just to use something. like a brand of coffee needs to be known(Nescafe is known though) or clothes need to be around 300K yen and all.

    at least it definitely shows how spoiled some rich kids are XD

    so any anime’s you guys been watching??

    • GhostNomad

      Just watched Deadman Wonderland last night. I had a cold and was trying to go to bed but the medicine wasn’t kicking in so I felt like watching something short.

      If Ep 12 was the ending of the anime, that’d be disappointing. The manga is only 58 chapters, and they covered 21 of them with the anime, so if they’d done a full 24/25/26 episode season, then that could’ve been the full story right there!

      But ah well, at least the manga’s short so I’ll be able to read through that in a few hours. I love Shiro’s goofy side and need to know what happens!

      • Gigus

        YESH! A FELLOW DW READER! Sadly you’re not a huge fan like me but I guess that’s OK XD. Yes the manga is short but its length in page is pretty long. I can’t remember if I was the one who recommended it to you lol. Anyways despite the graphic material on the manga, the story is pretty good. I’m actually anticipating the next translation of the creator’s next manga. It does kinda suck the author kept the series short and had a long hiatus on the series but she was preggers at the time. So hopefully u still enjoy it even though its a short manga.

        • GhostNomad

          Already finished it a couple of hours ago. The pages per chapter were…. Confusing. Sometimes it’d be ~20, other times around ~40, occasionally 50, and on one occasion, I think there was a chapter that was 11 pages long O.o Far as who recommended it, I’m sure you might’ve mentioned it at some point but I’ve known about it for a while by my best friend’s recommendation (as well as seeing fanart/screencaps here and there). Just didn’t really get into it until last night. I planned on just watching the anime since it was short, but it left me wanting answers (and obviously I wanted to see what would happen when Ganta and the Red Man finally met, all things considered and spoilers avoided).

          But anyway! Very interesting story. I feel like the last chapter left juuuuuust a little bit to be desired, but that’s my personal taste I suppose. I’ve noticed that desire pretty much every time I finished a completed manga. You could say that I didn’t want it to end :P Still a resolution that I enjoyed, so I’m not complaining. Plus Crow is a freaking badass :D

          • Gigus

            Oh don’t worry about spoilers with me, I already finished it. This is the only manga I was ever up to date with last year. The main theme of the story is what kept me going. Its really a tragic story for ganta and shiro and the dynamic between them was annoyingly interesting lol.
            As far as Crow goes……. meh. I’m a villain type of person. Evil Toto and shiro are my favorite. Minatsuki is another one. she is my first yandere (not sure if I spelt it right) XD.
            I can’t remember if the creators are working on a new manga but I really hope so. I know its selfish to want one since the writer has a new baby to take care of but…. yeah XD

            • GhostNomad

              I figured that you’d be caught up, but the spoilers were more for people who haven’t watched/read the anime/manga and don’t know what’s going down :P

              But yeah, I liked Minatsuki too. The twist there caught me off guard since I expected Ganta to throw the fight. I liked a lot of the characters, to be honest. Crow just appealed to me most since I normally favor characters like him, especially toward the end of the manga. And his reaction to seeing Shiro for the first time was amusing, so that pretty much caught my interest.

              • Gigus

                Obviously. Can’t you tell by my avi? :P. There were alotta twist and turns in this manga that would make M. Night shymalan ashamed XD.

                Its pretty typical for a guy like you to pick Crow. I will admit, he is a badass looking pirate lol. And yes, that was a funny experience for crow. Poor crow, can’t keep his cool at all in front of any type of woman XD. I liked the last chapter (won’t go into spoilers for others).

                Not to sure if you know this but the anime was canceled for it being to morbid and sexual I guess.

                • GhostNomad

                  I’m not surprised if that’s the case. They started off heavy with the Red Man, then shortly after that the dog race, yeeeeeah. I don’t really see it as too sexual outside of a few lines toward the beginning and then what happened toward the end when the Undertakers took the two hostages (you should recall the situation I’m referring to). Definitely violent though.

                  And yeah, the last chapter was cool. I liked the wrap-up, but like I said a couple of posts ago, I really wish they would’ve devoted a few extra pages to the very end of the chapter. AT LEAST SHOW A HUG OR SOMETHING! DAYUM!

                  • Gigus

                    Yeah even for the anime it was too violent. Guess people couldn’t get passed the violence to notice the story.

                    I can’t really agree with you there on the ending. I felt that it was good enough. I can understand the lack of Ganta knowing shiro’s condition but I think he knew, hence the feather.

                    Anyways, not sure if you’re still interested in my work but I’ve decided to redo the foxhound academy tee alittle bit. Not sure when I’ll finish but I hope its soon cause I need some form of income XD. Any suggestions? (incomplete)

                    Back to mangas though, what are you planning to read next? I’m going backwards. I’m planning on buying “All you need is kill” due to the movie adaptation due this year ( i think).

                      I didn’t expect you to agree. Again, just one of those personal things, mostly just because I don’t want it to end just yet. I want to experience the ending for just a little longer! It’s exactly how I felt with Kekkaishi, same way I felt with Beck: MCS.

                      Far as the shirt, I feel like the alert status (exclamation point) is a staple of MGS so I feel like that could be incorporated somehow. Maybe throw in something to do with the codec but that doesn’t seem like it’ll fit very well into this design, so that might be an idea for later. At any rate, whatever you do, expect at least one buyer for sure :P

                      I actually started reading Samurai Deeper Kyo a few days ago. I started it a few years back when it was just coming out in the US but dropped it due to lack of time and general lifestyle changes. Got up to chapter 50, decided to take a break for the night, skipped the next day, day after that I was sick, that night I picked up DW and binged on that. I’m going back to SDK now since my plan is to find a bunch of manga I’m interested in then prioritize the ones that have already been completed so I don’t get stuck on any cliffhangers. The only ongoing manga I’m keeping up with is Shingeki no Kyojin. I suppose a mention should also go out to Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou. It’s far from the type of manga that I usually get into, but something about this one kinda makes me enjoy it. It’s ecchi so I suppose that plays a part in it, but I honestly kinda like the story so I’ll be keeping up with that.

                      Another mention goes to Initial D. Heard the Final Stage was coming out this summer so I’m looking forward to that. I also have a hell of a lot of anime that I need to watch, and just as much manga (since most of the anime is based on manga and I’m going to want the full story). Not to mention the unholy amount of games waiting for me, and the fact that I’ve been looking for a new guitar since Beck filled me with nostalgia :D

                    • Gigus

                      I can understand your displeasure at writers pulling your emotional strings XD. Think of it as an open ended ending. He might’ve got that hug after all ;P. I do hate it too but if they end it on a right note I’m ok with that. Too be honest though I’ve lost my interest in Mangas a long time ago because of the ridiculous time jumps writers keep doing. F U One Piece and Naruto!

                      You’ve named alot of mangas I’m not aware of. I’ll give them a peek. I’m really a tough sell XD.

                      And don’t worry about the alert status. That goes right on top of the CQC homage. The empty one will include the bandanna. The only thing thats bothering me now is the fox. I’m not sure if I should redraw it completely or remove him. I think the famas are another issue. I might have to invert the color. Hmmm…. I’ll post it up again when I’m done fighting with my brain and hands. Oh and If I do post it up for sale, here is my storefront if no one else will sponsor me. I really appreciate the support and feed back you guys have shown me. Hopefully I’ll branch out and start doing some japanese gaming/anime tees. I just need to get back into the rhythm lol.

          I’m assuming NateSan07 is your JP account since you can’t play online with a NA account any more. I’ll be getting the game on Friday though.

          • Nate

            I’m in the states. In Alabama. NateSan07 is my JP account, I heard about that online pass stuff. I don’t know when I’ll get the game but I think when I do I want to grab some yen to get a dlc suit and maybe a gundam theme and avatar.

              Ah, okay. I’ll send you an invite on my JP account soon then. I should be getting back with my old EXVS group, which has some veterans and such, so I’ll be sure to introduce you to them when you get the game so you don’t get stuck playing random scrubs all the time, lol.

              Look for an invite from TetsuyaHikari_JP in the near future.

              I have no idea, lol. I had a friend in EXVS that played Qan[T] that would always say:

              ORE WA GUNDAM DA!

              It made me want to kick him in the dick every time he said it, especially since that unit was all kinds of cheese in EXVS, lol. I could handle him in my TIII, but even a decent player could make up for his lack of ability with the unit.

              • Budgiecat

                Well…it would make sense since I’m quoting from the show. They really do repeat that line way too often And if you ever played Gundam Meisters for PS2, Setsuna says it like EVERY TIME you enter into that QTE strike mode….gah..

                    So besides that, what are your thoughts about the series; It seems you didnt like it. I’m up to episode 15 so far..
                    I wonder what the countries (other than obvious U.S.A.) were supposed to represent in the real world.
                    It’s obvious they didn’t want to use real countries in fear of upsetting or insulting anyone but still I wonder what they were supposed to be….Middle East and all.
                    Like, is Setsuna isnt Japanese right? It seems he’s supposed to be Middle Eastern but you know…dat ambiguous Anime ethnicity….

    I’m debating on selling my .hack ps2 volumes 1-4. I just don’t know if I’ll have the time to play them again and they still can sell for a good price. I don’t really want to get rid of them because I enjoyed them and worked hard getting all 4, but It’s tempting to get the cash. Especially with Full boost coming out next week.

    • Gigus

      If you need the money, sell it. If you don’t need money, I’d say keep it.

      To my knowledge, they always release the latest expansion on a retail disc for any new players wanting to get into the game and have all of the content up-to-date. Otherwise, you just download the update as usual since it’s a P2P game anyway.

              • GhostNomad

                It actually has nothing to do with meat. If that were the case then I’d definitely agree, especially since I was around when she was pregnant. Can’t tell you how many times I got yelled off the couch and down to the nearest convenient store with nothing but shorts on :P

    One small victory for uploaders at Youtube!

    “Dear GamingHeroTetsuya,

    Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc. has reviewed your dispute and released its copyright claim on your video, “Sengoku Basara 4 – 戦国創世 島左近 (Part 4) [HD]”. For more information, please visit your Copyright Notice page

    Sincerely,

    – The YouTube Team”

    They’ve been giving me copyright claims on a few of my Sengoku Basara 4 videos because of the credits theme, but I disputed all of them and now it seems like they’ve decided to release the claim and let me go about my business since I argued fair use for the videos. I have a non-profit account, meaning I’m not monetizing (i.e. making money) off of their content (music, video, etc.), therefore… I simply stated that my content wasn’t threatening to the music owner or game company (in this case, Capcom), and they seemed to agree.

    I’ve basically been holding my breath while waiting for a reply to the dispute though, especially since they specially tell you that you should reconsider before sending a dispute claim since a false claim can lead to a termination of your Youtube account (or in extreme cases, the content owner taking you to court and suing you).

    • Budgiecat

      At least nowadays they give you the right to dispute.

      Back in the day I got three strikes without warning and my account banned..this might have even been before Google took over but I cant remember….

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

        Well, the dispute option has been there as long as I can remember and I’ve had multiple accounts, starting back from 2008 or so. It just really depends on what the content is. Some companies will flat out give you a strike regarding the content, but if it’s a simple ‘third party matched content’, you can dispute that if you want.

        I usually just acknowledge it since it’s not a big deal. I’m not monetizing my videos anyway. When they start muting the audio though… That’s when I have a problem. They can’t honestly expect me to believe that posting gameplay itself is fine, but the music within the game isn’t acceptable. That’s just ridiculous.

    Square Enix Holdings’ share price highest in over four years

    On
    24 January, Square Enix Holding’s share price reached its maximum
    allowable single-day gain of 400 yen to finish the day’s trading at
    2,081 yen. This is the company’s highest share price in over four years.
    The gains are partly attributed to Square Enix’s 23 January release of
    Dragon Quest Monsters Super Light.

    The first in the long-running
    spin-off franchise to be developed from the ground-up for smartphones
    and tablets, Super Light has been a hit with iOS users, leaping to fifth
    place in the sales rankings under the App Store games category.

    News
    of the title’s success drove up the share price of Square Enix as well
    as that of Cyber Agent, whose subsidiary Cygames (itself part-owned by
    DeNA) developed Super Light.

    The future of gaming? I want no part in it

      Duh, they’ve been managing the console side like crap. Derp decision after derp decision in that area. An entire generation of one game in development. Developing an engine for no reason. Among other things.

      Then with mobile you just make a cheap game, shove it out and people will either latch on or not. But it’s low cost and low risk. Potentially high reward.

      Who cares about quality when you can sell ‘berries’ for real money to keep people playing some shitty game?

        People who have tried it said it’s fun though. But they don’t elaborate further so it’s pretty pointless in the end.

            I’m saying it because Square Enix is on to something.

            Maybe the sequel can even play itself. :D

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    So I was wondering something. Is Soul Sacrifice Delta a sequel or is it an expansion? Will it include everything the original had?

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

      If I remember correctly, it’s just a huge update, but it should contain everything the original had, yes.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Sweet thanks,

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

          Actually, I just did some digging to find out impressions from people that played the demo. It seems a lot of people are unclear as to what it is actually. Some are saying it’s a new game, some are saying it’s an expansion, and some are even describing it as Soul Sacrifice 1.5.

          From the sound of it, the best way to probably put it would be the jump from God Eater to God Eater Burst or Ragnarok Odyssey to Ragnarok Odyssey Ace. So, it seems like it might stand on its own for the story, but there have been improvements on old mechanics.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I thought Burst and Ace both had the same stories as the originals… hmm… >.<;

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

              Yeah, but they added some new stuff to both, some of which involved additional characters and story elements, but yes… They do retain the original stories.

              • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                That is all I care. I ask because I don’t want to get SS if SSD has the same story.

    Nintendo!

    • $18114340

      Probably pressure from shareholders with all the recent hubub about the Wii U not meeting its (grossly unrealistic) sales targets what with the brouhaha of everybody angrily wanting Iwata to resign. Despite Nintendo insisting that it would do more harm than good to the brand (and probably being right about it for the most part). “Mobile’s hot, how do we get in on that?”

      I don’t think this will end well, especially considering how completely predictable and impact-less an effort on mobile seems to the rest of the industry.

      • Six

        People are always eager to express their hate at this and that (and everything I enjoy), but I don’t think enough blame is placed on shareholders for the industry being the way it is now.

        • $18114340

          Well to be fair, Nintendo is very different from other publicly-traded companies. The majority stake is owned by the Yamauchi Family (maybe not, now that Hiroshi Yamauchi has passed) and Nintendo employees if I recall correctly, so it limits outside influence on the company. That being said, shareholders are probably the biggest reason why certain western game companies — like Activision, EA, Ubisoft — are the way they are today (as opposed to how they were in the 90s).

      • Elvick

        Eh, Nintendo could offer some solid mobile offerings that wouldn’t hurt their brand.

        The Pokedex could have been great on mobile, but the pricing was ridiculous to me and I’m sure to many on mobile.

        If they want to continue making hardware, I doubt they’d do any ‘real’ games on there. But they could attempt to do companion apps like 3rd parties are doing, or MS Glass/PS App do. (granted the Wii U gamepad covers that for most things)

    Anyone getting the vita version of final fantasy x/x-2?

      Me~

      Was going to say that I couldn’t find it for preorder, but I checked again and it’s finally up on ebgames. Yay~

      • Gigus

        I’m actually debating right now XD. Not sure if I should get the collector’s edition from the se store so I can get the blu-ray soundtrack. Getting the soundtrack alone is horrendously expensive :/

        • Elvick

          I’m debating that too. I mean, I’m getting the PS3 version either way. But I don’t really like SE’s store exclusive crap… plus, it’s another $40 or w/e to add on. :

          But seeing this…

          • Gigus

            Yup……… ugh…. digital river. I really hope they don’t screw up my pre-order cause I’m thinking of getting lightning returns as well. Haven’t tried the demo yet but that will end up deciding my purchase.

            • Elvick

              It sucks that Drakengard 3 is exclusive (retail) at their store. Bleh.

              • Gigus

                ouch.

    • GhostNomad

      I’m definitely tempted since the portability factor will mean I’ll have a lot more opportunities to invest time into X and finally beat it. On the other hand, it’s also something I kinda wanna enjoy on a big screen while stretched out on a couch in my boxers.

      • Gigus

        Hmm….. those are the same reasons I’m having trouble deciding. I already beat both games though….. hmm…….

        • GhostNomad

          I played X several times. I looked up a FAQ to jog my memory and apparently the very last part I remember was no more than an hour or two from the end >.>

          My data got corrupted though so the farthest I’ve gotten since then is the Thunder Plains. Kinda gave up trying :D

          And as far as X-2, I promised myself not to play it until I finished X, so there’s that.

          • Gigus

            That sucks. Hopefully u don’t get another corrupt save file lol.

          • Elvick

            I <3 X-2's gameplay. :D

            • GhostNomad

              I’ve heard both good and bad things, but I’ve never actually done any further research so the HD version is not only my excuse to finally beat X but to finally give X-2 a try :P

              • Elvick

                I haven’t completed FFX legit. D:

                I used a gameshark to beat it.

                • GhostNomad

                  I don’t think I ever cheated outside of using FAQs for certain confusing parts. Not to say that I wouldn’t have cheated if I had the money to buy a Gameshark :P

                  • Elvick

                    My cousin had one, so I used his. I got stuck on Sin. D:<

                    • GhostNomad

                      There were a lot of annoying fights in that game. And the fact that I’d completely screwed my sphere grid didn’t really help much either :D

                    • Gigus

                      Really? I’ve never had a problem with any of the monsters before. It might be different when the HD version releases next month because I don’t know how different the international version is. I think FFX is the only ff I’ve ever completed easily. Even got the celestial weapons.

                    • GhostNomad

                      It probably would’ve been easier if I’d given the proper amount of attention. I didn’t treat the game the way it was meant to be treated so it refused to cooperate with me.

                    • Gigus

                      Maybe….. I’m not sure. To be honest X-2 had more task then X even though X-2 was thought to be the shorter game.

                • Gigus

                  CHEATER! FFX is the easiest FF I’ve ever played.

                  • Elvick

                    FFX-2 was easiest for me.

                    As far as the RPGs go anyway… FFVII: Dirge of Cerberus is the easiest, even on the hardest difficulty.

                    • Gigus

                      Dirge was an rpg? I thought it was a shooter with rpg elements?

                    • Elvick

                      I was referring to X-2 being an RPG.

                      If we go outside that (RPGs) DoC wins.

      • Gigus

        Yeah……. hmm…

  • GhostNomad

    Well @disqus_YhW3MNMevX:disqus I don’t often go back on my words, but it seems I’ve lied to you. I said I was gonna go back to reading Samurai Deeper Kyo, instead I ended up watching Bakemonogatari. Why? Honestly I’m not really sure myself. Those meatball cookies loaded me up with energy (we made a second batch with instant coffee mixed in), so I ended up watching through all 15 episodes while running. In retrospect, terrible idea since the show is only subbed. Reading and running didn’t really mix but I was so into it that I only noticed the headache after I almost fell over around 3 hours in :D After a break it was time to finish up the season.

    I really like the anime. The story’s interesting, the voice acting is fantastic even if I can maybe understand a handful of words/phrases, the art style is unique (and often goofy during the appropriate moments). Definitely a fan of Hitagi’s personality but pretty much every character is awesome. From what I understand though, the main character is supposed to be an even bigger perv in the novel than they portray him in the anime, so that kinda makes me want to know what I’m missing out on.

    I just finished Nisemonogatari which is the sequel. Again, awesome 11 episodes. Wish Hitagi would’ve had a little more screen time but it was meant to focus more on the Araragi sisters, so it’s all good on that note especially considering there are some crazy developments in their arc. I have so much love for this series, regardless of how weird it can get sometimes.

  • McPoo

    Has anyone been following the Empire 25 magazine covers for X-men Days of Future Past? They’re posting one collectors cover an hour on their website, each one featuring a character from the upcoming movie.

    You can see them all here: http://www.empireonline.com/xmen/default.asp

    I quite like most of them, although Quicksilver, who I was really looking forward to seeing, is completely different to how I pictured. I love Evan Peters though so I’m sure he’ll do a good job. I was hoping to see Iceman all iced up too, so that’s a bit disappointing.

    On the whole though, it’s all made me even more excited for the movie. Going to have to re read the comic and watch the movies soon :)

    • Elvick

      I saw three on twitter, Storm, Rogue and Mystique. They were great.

      Nice to see them all. I agree about Quicksilver. He looks… :

      • McPoo

        I can’t even remember him in the comic to be honest. With all the 60s telecommunications kit strapped to him he looks like he’s some sort of old style hacker or spy or something. I don’t think I dislike the way he looks, it’s just very different.

        I love Ellen Page as Kitty too. Perfect person to play her, I reckon.

    My copy of Sengoku Basara 4 was came today! I got that special edition “Hyakka Ryouran Tamatebako”. Took some pics because I don’t have anyone in RL to show off to, lol >.<

    http://imgur.com/a/QBQdK#0

    It will always amuse me at how big packaging sizes can get

    The special edition consists of a story board of sorts for the story scenes and what not. I only gave it a quick glance 'cause I didn't want to get spoiled about what kind of scenes to expect (already found out there are character deaths to be had D:)

    The art/info book is nice enough. There's only full spreads for the new characters, but the returning ones get some nice insight. Personally I think a lot of the alt. costumes look really good compared to what they offered in SB3 (although I wish Yukimura's was a little more than a shirt and pants, so I'll probably stick to his default look…). That said, I might cave and still buy the DLC ones one day. If they offer some bundle discount, it'll be likely~

    And the winged tiger sumi-e was Yukimura's, not Naotora's like I originally thought (I hope they have some scenes together; shenanigans please ^^)

    The LE I got basically pimps out Masamune. So on top of getting him plastered on the packaging, there's an alternate slipcase for the PS3 case if you really wanna use it. I'm fine with the default one, so I'll stash that away instead, haha. Also came with a PS3 theme of him, so I installed that on my JP user account. He's not my fave character, but he looks cool.

    I ordered from Ami Ami which didn't have any pre-order bonus alt.costume DLC to offer like other stores, but they had this cleaning cloth of Sakon you could pay extra for, so it wasn't free, but it's really nice and detailed

    All in all, my first JP import experience wasn't scary =D

    Anyways, I'm gonna start on the game soon. I'll use Katsuie first, but I want to unlock all the characters before getting really in depth into the game. Gotta figure out the order to get all the characters quickly…

    Also, looks like I'm probably wrong about the Tenkai/Akechi thing; I read that Akechi is the NPC and Tenkai is the playable character O_o

    • PrinceHeir

      good stuff!! man Japan really knows how to package a game with tons of goodies ^^

      enjoy the game! i’m still waiting for Musou Orochi 2 Ultimate here on the west. i’m not in a hurry to play a musou game since i still need to finish Ken’s Rage 2 DLC scenarios!!

      are you getting Samurai Warriors 4 as well??

      • new_tradition

        Nah, SenBasa is enough for me. I’m pretty sure I’ll get a lot of hours into the game, and I prefer the more flashy fast paced action >.<

    • GhostNomad

      Congrats! I’m jealous because I want to buy that too but will probably hold off another week and make a decision then. I don’t understand a single word of Japanese outside of a handful of little phrases, so I feel it’d be wasted on me. Masamune is my favorite character though so a pimped out version that puts him as the main focus, all the more tempting!

      That said, you haven’t seen ridiculous packaging until you see a ring delivered in a box big enough to fit two fat PS3s. Speaking from personal experience >.>

      • new_tradition

        I think the LEs might actually be sold out by now, so if you find it, you got some awesome luck :O

        Truthfully, I would’ve held out on buying the game myself, but the LE was really tempting and didn’t cost that much more than the stand alone game (before calculating shipping at least). If you’re not super interested in the game, I’d recommend waiting. I imagine an expansion game will come out and then they’ll sell it and SB4 together for a discounted price.

        I don’t understand Japanese either, but after playing one stage with Katsuie, I don’t think getting through the game will be too difficult. It’s just the details with weapons and clear bonuses and what not that I’ll be scouring for info, haha.

        Plus playing the previous game that came out in English helped a lot ^^

        Also: lolwut, for real? But I can believe that xD

        • GhostNomad

          I really want to play it, but I also really want to understand it. Having that, coupled with the fact that there’s plenty of other reasons for me to learn Japanese, I think I’ll finally put my brain to good use and get to it!

            There’s rumours of a new Sengoku Basara anime. If it’s true, I’d imagine it would try to adapt some events in the game, so assuming that pans out, it should help with context xD

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

        Honestly, the hardest part to understand would be the fusion system that they added to this one. You basically take your main weapon, fuse it with another weapon for an increase in stats and you can transfer abilities as well (+150 strength, +1 hit, 40% exp increase, etc.).

        The rest of the stuff is EASY MODO.

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

          If you absolutely need more help though, here’s a good guide for menu translations and whatnot.

        • GhostNomad

          That fusion system sounds very similar to the one in Warriors Orochi 3 >.>

          And as weird as it’ll sound, I actually want to be able to understand the story, not just the menus and gameplay. I actually enjoyed the cutscenes and bits of dialogue during battles in Samurai Heroes, so I’d like to be able to understand what’s going on in this one too.

  • PrinceHeir

    Gundam Extreme Vs. Full Boost Live gameplay

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-9lhsxq_XE

    love the Gundam Wing and 00 OST being played on the background :)

    game looks fun as hell!! and i’m in a Gundam addict mode right now so i might have to import it.

    though i do wonder if the Premium G Edition is worth it?

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

      Too bad the guy was trash, lol. No boost or HP management whatsoever, hardly switched targets, evasive tactics were terrible, and he wasted plenty of attacks when the lock on was only green.

    It’s a week old, but I still felt like sharing it since this kind of behavior is quite common, yet people always laugh at me as if I’m joking about rape stories and such where the people around the victim simply don’t try to get involved, and attempt to ignore it in fear of getting in trouble.

    Foreigners get involved sometimes, but that’s because they grew up in a different society. You try to grope someone on a subway train in Japan, you might get away with it. You try to grope someone on a subway train in New York City, you’re likely to get the shit beat out of you. We don’t tolerate that in the States.

    http://en.rocketnews24.com/2014/01/22/why-deciding-whether-or-not-to-help-a-crying-girl-is-complicated-in-japan/

    • GhostNomad

      Part of it has to do with the mentality that “It’s okay, someone else will come along and help”. It’s even worse when it’s an event that’s witnessed by a lot of people because then they can look around and think “someone else will definitely do something”. I’ve seen it happen plenty of times, and I’ve jumped into plenty of situations with little to no thought. As you may imagine, I’ve gotten hurt unnecessarily, even made the situation worse on a few occasions but I suppose that’s just something that comes with the territory of being a kid who’s watched a little too much anime and played a few too many games >.> The good ol’ days of being young and dumb!

      But on the article’s topic, that hurts me a little considering I want to live in Japan for a while. Apparently it’s very difficult for me to look friendly, but it’d be even more difficult to ignore a little girl walking alone at night and crying. Considering that I’m definitely not local, have zero reputation, and more than likely zero friends, I’d land in some pretty hot water by just trying to help :D

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

        Yeah, you’d probably just be viewed as a creepy foreigner trying to molest her. That’s just the sad, but honest truth, unfortunately. It especially makes me feel uncomfortable because as much as I’d like to help, I probably wouldn’t.

        I’ve read far too many stories of men being extorted for money from high school girls and even middle school girls by threat of a rape whistle or a report to the police.

        • GhostNomad

          Yeeeah. Here in the States I have friends and family as well as a mostly clean record that can vouch for my character. Even if I got in trouble with the law for trying to help, everything should be cleared up in an hour or two at most. But in a new place with zero support, I’d probably get kicked out of the country. Unfortunate but I’m the one who’s visiting so I have to be mindful of their standards and practices, not the other way around :P

      • Gigus

        Ouch I know how you feel XD. I’m not white but I’ve had a couple friends try to white knight it once when we took a trip to japan once. It was mostly the japanese men who thought that they should have let a local take care of the situation. They were just jealous because of whatever females were on the train were praising them for doing what was right.

        • GhostNomad

          That’s another thing. I’ve actually been in a situation where a dude called the police to get me in trouble after he saw that I was friends with his ex girlfriend >.> That was a weird situation, and my naturally unfriendly appearance didn’t go down well with the cops. Thankfully I’d made some friends within the department so everything was cleared up in a hurry.

          • Gigus

            I’m just glad I blend in XP. so if I try to do whats right, I won’t get in trouble lol. They find out real quickly I’m a foreigner because I only respond by nodding XD.

        • Budgiecat

          They should have stood in front of them doing continuous Henshin poses to further piss them off for not doing anything

  • Elvick

    Anyone else interested in Maleficent (the movie)? I love her character (especially in Kingdom Hearts). So I’m looking forward to it.

    I wish that Once Upon A Time had handled Maleficent better. That is the worst portrayal in the series. I accepted the (imo) terrible casting and design. But they still made her suck in the show.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pgmFAOgm5E

    This ain’t no Maleficent. Poo on the writers/casting/designers of Once Upon A Time.

      I am!

      I might end up checking it out. Very few movies coming out this year that I’m interested in so I’ll probably end up watching random stuff for the hell of it.

    • Budgiecat

      nice rack though….

    Just a little road rage to give you guys a laugh :p

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rym5unx0ZCo

    • Gigus

      lol did he seriously had to do that if the other guy rear ended his car? If he just let the cops and insurance handle it, all will be well for the guy but instead he had to be macho and make matters worse cause he’s doing damage to the other person’s car XD. Devolution at its best.

      • Budgiecat

        I did that once with my motorcycle but only because the driver legitimately tried to knock me off the road and I almost fell, and when I followed him to a red light and stopped him he tried to drive off and hit a Mercedes SLK by reversing. Then he smashed into a cab later on trying to come after me while he left that accident and nearly drove into some people walking alongside by driving onto the sidewalk to run me over as I tried to escap, while one a family with a baby carriage an an old woman. I got mad and got off my bike and kicked off both of his side mirrors and smashed his door and front window then the old lady told me its not worth it so I took off…

        • Gigus

          Thats a entirely different situation though. The guy who hit you ran off. If he didn’t run and you tried to macho him out then the situaion would be similar.

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

          Did you just pull a scene from a movie?

          • Gigus

            Did he? XD didn’t notice XP never mind….. disqus wasn’t showing the entire message on my phone so I only read part of it.

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

              It just sounded like it was from a movie, lol.

                Meh believe the cat or humor the cat. I mainly choose “humor the cat”.

          • Budgiecat

            nah this time it was real; although often when I think about it, it does sound like a movie lol

    • Elvick

      That guy has some anger issues.

      Also, what’s with “bad asses” doing that ‘Y’ thing with their arms? :

      Annnnd it’s hilarious he lost his voice while doing it. By the end he was squeaking.

    • GhostNomad

      Should’ve watched this earlier. For a Sergeant that dude screams like a bitch. I’ve taken dumps more intimidating than that.

      • Gigus

        His voice cracks a few times so take it easy on the guy going through puberty still.

        • GhostNomad

          Shouldn’t you be working on your T-shirt designs?

          SHOO. BAD ROBOT THING.

          • Gigus
            • GhostNomad

              I have 3 liters of water that can fix that.

              • Gigus

                I told you that doesn’t work. Haven’t you learned anything from the terminator movies. We’ll keep coming. The difference is there is no john connor to save you.

                • GhostNomad

                  Who needs John Connor when we have Ghost Nomad?! Besides, there is no problem that cannot be solved by a suitable application of high explosives 8]

                  • Gigus

                    we got explosives also and a ghost bot. so i’m pretty much good…… but I’ll retreat for now. Need fuel (food).

  • Elvick

    Square Enix has the worst account system of all time. I hate them and I hate their store.

    I tried signing into my account to pre-order the CE of FFXIV on PS4, since it’s exclusive to their shitty store… and my account was temporarily deactivated. : They said to check my email. Nothing.

    So, I had to reset my password which worked.

    Then I was finally able to sign in and then I noticed a message under the sign in about not being able to sign in… their suggestion is of course to create a new account. Because that’s what you do. I know I just create a new account every time I visit a site!

    Idiots. How they have the gall to have such a shitty account system and then have exclusive shit to their stupid ass store is beyond me.

    I had issues getting into the FFXIV beta on PS3 due to account issues. And at some point SE wiped my original account.

    Just terrible.

    • PrinceHeir

      that sucks.

      though i have a brother who had an account since 2008 or 2009 and has work so far.

      maybe they did a redesigned?

      i have my LRFFXIII Limited Edition and FFX | FFX-2 HD Limited Edition on pre order right now.

      i’m thinking of buying Drakengard 3(exclusive) as well, but i fear about the censorship so i’ll wait and learn more about that one before buying.

      • Elvick

        They did a re-design, but I remember signing in and using my account after it. Then I came back later and the account had been purged.

        I have Drakengard preordered there but had no problems at that time.

          • PrinceHeir

            really wanted to see this ever since seeing it on the trailers.

            it really rivals Advent Children as one of the best CGI’s ever released.

            i do wonder how Appleseed stack up against this though.

    • MrFinalgamer

      it’s still ways ahead. granted IMO the ratchet movie looked alot better in its teaser, but still it might be too early to tell. but that Murray design…they need to change that ASAP

      • Gigus

        does murray look that bad? I’m actually fine with it. I really don’t remember giant hippos being cute XP

        • MrFinalgamer

          sly’s design isn’t bad. it’s weird seeing a realistic sly for the first time, but i got used to it fairly quickly
          bentley looks…weird, especially because you can see his eyes (as odd as that sounds)…and is he in a wheelchair on this one? i can’t remember.
          the thing is that they look close enough to their original designs, except for Murray. he looks…blegh. this might’ve been too long, but he just looks so damn awkward in comparison to the other character designs.

          • Gigus

            I can understand. Well they got two years. Wasn’t bentley always on a wheel cheer?

            • MrFinalgamer

              it’s a bit of a spoiler, but it’s at the end of sly 2 that he became a cripple. what i’m not sure is if this is a movie about the first game like Ratchet, or a new story entirely

              • Gigus

                Oh ok now I remember XP. Its been awhile since I played sly 1. Guess I need to rebuff my memory since i have the hd collection. Do you recommend getting sly 4?

                • MrFinalgamer

                  oh heck yes! it’s right there with sly 2 with being the best game in the series. the game is really safe gameplay wise, but this was a great fan service, especially with the ancestors, plus it’s just so much fun!. my only complains is the bad load times, and that you rarely play as anyone but sly (oh and the sly masks are annoying). there’s also a plot twist with a certain character which could’ve been handled better. but still, the game’s fantastic on either PS3 or vita so you’re getting a great experience no matter the console you choose. (although there’s a few frame rate drops on the vita version).

                  • Gigus

                    Hmm I’ll check it out. The only reason why I never picked it up cause hardcore fans were complaining alot.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      well that plot twist is probably the reason why so many fans don’t like the whole game…

                    • Gigus

                      hmm….. I’m open to changes. I’ll give it a go.

                    • Elvick

                      Well, as a hardcore fan… I think it’s amazing.

                      Both versions of the game are great. Both have some random framerate drops in the open world on occasion, but it’s not too often.

                      Still need to get the plat. Still hoping that ESRB rating for the Sly Collection on Vita turns into an actual release… I want Sly 1-3 on Vita.

              • Elvick

                It’s it’s own thing based on the synopsis given.

                A new origins. Since it says, “In the film, Sly learns that he comes from a long line of talented,
                international thieves, and is catapulted into a global adventure. Sly
                races to reassemble pieces of an ancient book holding the Cooper clan’s
                family secrets before it can fall into the hands of Clockwerk”

                Unless “learns” means “as a kid” that’s just not how it happened in the game. Since he knew all along.

                And they had the Thievius Racoonus in the first game and it was stolen. And Clockwerk stole the book when Sly was a kid. Sure, it was split up, but there was no “before it can fall into the hands of Clockwerk” aspect to it.

    • Elvick

      I doubt they’ll change it back. They didn’t even ask him to be a part of it and went straight to this other guy for “quality”. Or so that’s what they said in a comment on the PS Blog entry about the movie.

      I would love them to, and have made that clear, but the thing that *needs* to happen is them changing Murray’s design. Realism or not, he’s not cute.

      Madagascar has a hippo too, but she’s cute. Not gross.

      • Gigus

        Hmm…. fair point but this ain’t Madagascar. We jus gotta wait.

  • Budgiecat

    Well I did it: I marathoned Gundam 00 and the movie…..

    • PrinceHeir

      WOW!

      so how was it? pretty awesome right except for the ending of the movie XD

      basically what happened to Mass Effect 3 ending!

      i’ve also been watching some episodes of Gundam 00 in Gundam Info and it really made me realize that i miss the show.

      did you also watched the OVA Special edition?

      http://myanimelist.net/anime/7270/Mobile_Suit_Gundam_00_Special_Edition

      it basically recaps Season 1 and 2 and adds new extended scene as well as Ribbons relationship with Alejandro.

      my mood really changes on what my favorite Gundam is.

      Gundam Wing
      Gundam 00

      Gundam Seed/Destiny(yes i treat the series as a whole)

      for now my favorite is Wing, but 00’s animation and battle scenes are really pushing me towards the series, while Seed/Destiny is giving me some nostalgia moments after seeing it on Gundam Info.

      i used to watch this series late night for 5 days(they showed 1 episode per day from Mon-Fri)

      ahh the memories ^^

      • Budgiecat

        The movie was weird but the ending actually made sense in regards to the whole series and was profound (I’m talking about the last two sentences said) which totally defined who Marina was as a character and what Setsuna was searching for and struggling to understand all along.

        Nah did not catch the OVA special edition didnt know about it so I guess I gotta look into that.

        I know Tetsuya hates 00 but he wont tell me why :P

        • PrinceHeir

          oh well i don’t really remember that much, but it really made me go wtf the first time i saw it.

          i think Setsuna should have stayed with Feldt(make’s much more sense) and Marina will just have to search her own love in the future.

          Marina and Setsuna didn’t even get enough screen time and the relationship between Feldt is much better tbh.

          i think they were trying to pull a Heero and Relena here. Unlike Marina, Relena actually goes out and looks for Setsuna instead of just waiting and waiting for him to come to her.

          let me guess, he’s a UC fan :P

          • Budgiecat

            I’m not sure what he is….

      You know what the funniest part is? A commenter on Eurogamer pointed out that if you buy a PS4, you can jump into the next-gen AND keep your PS3 at the same time for the same cost. Microsoft might want to re-think their promotions and what they imply.

      • Elvick

        I didn’t even think of that.

        Hilarious.

    • Budgiecat

      Its just Microsoft’s mentality of dropping the last console like it’s a smelly shit as soon as the new one comes out since they pretty much abandoned the XBox not too long after the 360 came out.
      Nintendo kinda does it too but other than playing GC games (unless you still own a GC) there’s really no reason to keep a Wii if you own a Wii U..
      Whereas PS2 still had games coming out for it up to 2009 and some beyond that..

    February PS+ Lineup in North America for those that missed it.

    I either have everything I want (both Vita games and Remember Me) or have no interest in them (everything else). Maybe I’ll give Metro a shot though. I just hate that there’s only one PS4 game and it’s a horror title. That means there’s a month of nothing for my PS4 on PS+. ): I can’t play horror games.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=027Mg5cBMc8

    • Gigus

      You should give horror games a chance. They’re the only genre in video games that keep me tense and don’t bore me to quickly. I’ve seen and played outlast and it ain’t completely scary. If u wanna start slow I recommend playing RE:2 or dead space. If you jump into games like siren blood curse or clock tower you’ll be afraid forever and ruin your appetite for horror games.

      I was gonna recommend the last of us to start you into the genre but that game will just tug at your emotional strings. Its more of a harrowing game than survival “horror”.

      Back on subject though, I have none of these PS+ games except for outlast. So yay for my wallet.

      • Budgiecat

        They should put Rule of Rose, Haunting Ground, Siren 2, on PSN and localize Hungry Ghosts for PSN

        • Gigus

          I’ve been posting r.o.r on their blog, no response :(

          • Budgiecat

            Clearly you must move onto stage II of convincing: divine intervention of Celestial Being with an all out assault on their headquarters using the Gundam Meisters

      • Elvick

        I’m too jumpy for it. I don’t like to feel tense while playing games.

        Heck, some action games are hard for me (original Tomb Raider, with that damn music! Resistance creepy parts, etc.)

        Even Uncharted 1’s later half was like that.

        I just don’t enjoy it. I’ve grown more used to it in action games and shooters, but I can’t give the horror genre a go. It’s just not for me.

        I don’t mind it being part of PS+, but I do wish they’d offer something for those who can’t play them.

        I’ve tried Dead Space btw and it’s too much for me. Same with Resident Evil.

    First day sellthrough (thanks neogaf’s sales-age genius) :

    [PS3] Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs. Full Boost – 70%
    [PS3] Diablo III > 60%
    [PSV] Disgaea 4 Return – 60-70%
    [3DS] Toushin Toshi – 40-50%
    [PSV] Amagami (EBKore+) – 40-50%

    An updated re-re-re-release of an old PS2 game sells for 50% the first day? No wonder (niche) third party loves Vita.

    I’m pleased with Disgaea 4’s sales.

      Third party may like Vita (and 3DS) but they sure as hell don’t like localizing them much

      • icecoffemix

        Hmm what? Did you miss all the title heading to the west? Many of them unexpected like Monster Moonpiece and Mind Zero.

        And no “But I’m not interested with that game!” card please.

          Moonpiece? Knick the second o.

        • Budgiecat

          Those two compared to the total of games we dont get is a small amount.

          • icecoffemix

            Those two are just some of the recent example, there are a lot more game being localized on Vita (check gamefaqs schedule).

            And you could say the same to 3DS and practically all other console if you want to be that selective.

    Ugh….

    I’m horrible online at Gundam Extreme VS…

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

      Don’t feel bad, lol. I was kicked out of the first lobby I joined, shortly after the first match. I guess people still hate TIII ;w;

      I also did all of the FB missions in one sitting on Extreme. They were all EASY MODO, sadly :/

      EDIT: Also, you should send me a friend invite already. Apparently the online FB missions are different and I don’t have many friends with the game at the moment. Just send a friend request to:

      We’ll go kick some CPU ass later.

        I dont have Full Boost yet and probably wont get it for a while (brokey broke)

      Gaming is going mobile and I don’t like it.

      Did he seriously get hit by a Stormtrooper? This game is broken as fuck.

    Why all these feels, Monogatari Series….. Why D:

    I was lured in with promises of busty cat-girls in lingerie, tsundere girlfriends, and masochistic, pervy basketball player… I did not sign up for these feels! So good yet so bad! And pretty much every opening theme! And all the adorable crap that keeps happening!

    I need to go punch rocks for 10 minutes so I can feel manly again >.>

    Since Open Forum #81 isn’t available yet, I’ll just leave this here.

    It currently has 31 videos in it so far, showing off the FB missions (previously called ‘Trial Mode’ in EXVS) on Extreme difficulty (excluding the tutorial missions in the beginning since the difficulty can’t be altered on those). I’ve got 16 videos left and I’m going to let those upload as I sleep.

    I’ll add them to the playlist after I wake up.

    If only we could all be as narrow-minded as you, then the world would truly be a better place.

    Not sure why the same picture was posted twice on that post. I figured Disqus must have been acting up again or something, kind of like what happened with that gif you posted earlier, @Budgiecat:disqus :p
