    Thats the pic of the vita game Mind 0 right? Getting localized too, the UK price for the vita slim is pretty steep. I dont think its an encouraging step for vita, but i think they want people to rush and buy the OLED version out before they drop its price

    The following is a Public Service Announcement for all PC gamers.

    South Park: Stick of Truth is $60 on Steam. PC games should not cost the same as console games. Console games should be $10 more than PC games because that $10 license fee goes to the platform holders, i.e. Sony/Nintendo/Microsoft. PC has no platform holder to pay that $10 license fee to so that $10 is just lining the publishers pockets.

    By purchasing a PC game for $60 YOU ARE GIVING FREE MONEY TO THE PUBLISHERS!!!

    STOP PAYING $60 FOR PC GAMES!!!

    Thank you.

    • adhesive

      It’s been about the bottom line for publishers for a while. That’s why companies like Activision get away with having a 2-page manual on Call of Duty, a multi billion dollar IP.

      • $18114340

        Well to be perfectly fair, nobody reads the manual to a Call of Duty game, and the games pretty much consist wholly of force-feeding players instructions anyway.

  • PrinceHeir

    Do you think western versions of Japanese games should offer reversible cover in the original release?

    so many western covers look bad in comparison to the original cover. the thing that even bugs me is when i look at the back, it’s all blank white and nothing more.

    it’ll definitely add more value to it if they have two covers, one for the west and one for people who prefer the original cover all in its glory.

    i’m also disappointed with Kojima removing Miller in the western cover of Ground Zero(then again i already plan on importing it) and the reason is people might ask who he is or something.

    it would be cool if they add this as a reversible cover.

    http://www.metalgearinformer.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/MGS-Ground-Zeroes-Reversible-Cover-Shinkawa.jpg

    • DarthBrian

      All games should have reversible covers.

    • gekitsu

      yeah. maybe not necessarily always a western/eastern reversible cover, but in general: make a default cover for pacifying some exec somewhere, and put a well designed, daring one on the flip side. one that would never get past a sales/appeal optimisation team. one that doesnt cut corners and is actually good.

      one of my faves is the mgs4 box. inside, its plain red with a centered white mgs4 logotype on the front and a very small centered kojipro logo on the back. that makes a much better cover.

    • Elvick

      I think all games should have reversible cover art.

  • PrinceHeir

    what are the small things that attracted you to play a game?

    it could be anything, the world, artstyle, the way the character moves or something.

    i really enjoy the small things you can do in Deadly Premonition like drinking coffee, sleeping, the way York talks about his favorite movies with Zack, the dialogue.

    these are the things that really appreciate and make me go out and play this game.

    even in Dead or Alive series, while i played the first game on PS one(but barely remembers it) the thing that attracted me for the series is Christie.

    ever since seeing her as the cover girl in Dead or Alive 3, it really made me want an Xbox back then.

    then i finally get to play her in DOA5 and i’m disappointed at one bit :P

    love her “Snake” like style, her combos are amazing and that sinister voice!!

    can’t believe this is the same voice actor that did the original Sailor Moon(will reprise her role in the new anime as well!)

    • Anime10121

      Believe it or not, art style is usually my biggest draw when it comes to a game or anime! If I dont like the design of the world and its characters, its hard for me to become attached to them. Music and story though are what usually make me keep playing a game though, unless its a game more suited towards gameplay like a fighter or a 2D platformer.

    • shogunknight

      Music, great music in games. I like how for some games i play, the music almost perfectly syncs with the current scenario or event in the game. (e.g. bladewolf battle in MGS:Revengeance). Another thing that i always look forward to is that moment when the story suddenly gets deep from a simple or straight forward story (reason why i love rpgs). Boss fights move me, berial of DMC4 and Cerberus of DMC3 is still one of my best

      • PrinceHeir

        love MGR OST, i may have to go hear it again since i listened to the OST all year long last year till i stop playing(i’m at 48 hours now and haven’t even touched the DLC or VR missions yet)

        and boss fights as well!! love the boss fights in MGR, No More Heroes, Ninja Gaiden and the like ^^

    • gekitsu

      charm is a pretty big draw for me. its not always a certain set of details, but how they mesh together overall. also, how the larger themes/mechanics of something tie in with the off-beat details/stuff.
      not a game, but doctor who is dishing out the charm in metric tons. the combination of seriousness and quirkiness, of how despite matters that span space and time, everyone talks british english. and then they reference it like “if youre an alien, why do you sound like youre from the north?” – “lots of planets have a north!”
      similarly charming: how mgs treats its silly parts, like shooting plastic frogs, hiding under cardboard boxes, ogling idol posters…

      another big draw is aesthetics. not things like more polygons, more shaders, better aa and whatever inconsequential tech bit they think of next, but vision of design. powerful engines dont make good pictures by themselves, that needs deliberate work by designers and artists. style, colour, composition, playing off detail and simplification.
      despite being over 30 years old, there is no film more aesthetically beautiful than blade runner. and nothing in it is a digital effect.
      its not how much graphical power you can throw on the screen, its what you do with it.

      • PrinceHeir

        agree, i really love some of the aesthetics of games like Okami, Prince of Persia 2008 and the like.

        they don’t have the so called jaw dropping physics or any next gen big features, but the world and art really meshed well together.

        Okami still holds up pretty amazing to this day!

        i love games who can stand on the test of time ^^

    • Elvick

      Art design often leads me to a game. Sorcery Saga for instance. Love the artwork of that game. It’s why I bought the Agarest series too.

      I think that’s probably the biggest factor for me.

  • OverlordZetta

    Can’t wait for Persona 0 to come out.

    For those getting all hussy about this joke. Seriously? People have been making comparisons to Persona since MIND=0 was announced and they kept on piling in with the similar themes, not-Personas, and character designs. Stop taking things so seriously.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Uh that isn’t ever going to happen.

      • OverlordZetta

        Yet Aksys is localizing it and everything.

          why not just call it by its name then >_>

          • OverlordZetta

            Why not just not take things so seriously?

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

          Nope they are localizing a game called Mind Zero don’t be a dumbass.

          • OverlordZetta

            Get a sense of humor.

            • adhesive

              Let’s be realistic, this is Auragar you’re talking to. You know that’ll never happen.

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

              There is humor and then there is idiocy. Like you. Again I say: don’t be a dumbass, dumbass.

  • PrinceHeir

    after seeing Gundam Extreme Versus Full Burst and Shin Gundam Musou and Armored Core for the Verdict any more Mech games you could recommend for me??

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gIo1-LYxEM&list=WLwTZ_rCdJi7DJzbtFNbeOg2wgM-UyAmp6

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lu9njhXXuCI

    especially after rewatching and finishing Gundam Wing(will finished Operation Meteor Recap and Endless Waltz on spring break) it rekindled my interest in the Mech genre.

    here’s the list that i know so far

    Zone of the Enders,Armored Core,A.C.E. Another Century,Frame Gride,

    Gundam Extreme Versus,Shin Gundam Musou,Super Robot Wars,

    Virtual-On,Border Break,Kikou Heidan J-Phoenix,Baldr Force,Assault Gunner,

    basically games where you control some sort of Mech machine that can do air battles though there nothing wrong with ground battles as well!

    while this list is more of human to human shooter, there are some instances where you use some sort of mobile suit for air and ground battle.

    Lost Planet,E.X. Troopers,Earth Defense Force,Steel Chronicle, Gunslinger Stratos,

    i still can’t fucking believed E.X. Troopers will never be localized(as same with Sengoku Basara 4), been a big fan of Lost Planet. then again it’s best to just import it since it’s cheap now.

    EDF 4 is coming out now!!! also people should check out Steel Chronicle and Gunslinger Stratos 2.

    it’s a shame Konami could have put Steel Chronicle and released it world wide instead of milking MGS too much. nothing wrong with that, but i want some variety. this along with Bloody Roar 5 would be been at least good for Konami’s lineup.

    i mean just look at this! why can’t we have more Mech style arcade shooting games like this!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2lOTRh1YOg

    • OverlordZetta

      Gundam Warriors 2 (or Gundam Musou 2) had a lot of depth to it, though it might be a step down depending on how good Shin was (I haven’t gotten to play it).

      If you have a Vita, I would highly recommend Danball Senki W and Gundam SEED Battle Destiny. Both are really fun games, Danball is basically a hybrid of custom robo and Medabots with more terrorism and BD is basically a SEED game and even if you hate the anime, it’s still a really damn good mecha game with a ton of customization. There are in depth guides for it around as well.

      • Budgiecat

        I’ve read several players complaining about Shin…

    • Budgiecat

      Gundam 0081 Chronicle
      Gundam UC
      Another Century’s Episode 1,2,3
      Zone of Zenders Collection

      Aim For the Top Gunbuster
      Rahxephon
      Tech Romancer

      • PrinceHeir

        i saw Gundam 00 gameplay and i’m surprised this was released on the PS2!!

        Rahxephon is basically Zone of the Enders games, didn’t know there was a Gunbuster game O___O

        i want a mech game where you really can fly of the screen and do battles like ZOE and Rahxephon.

        i know the arena style fighting games like Extreme VS, Virtual-On,Border Break, and the like are similar, but their limited on their plain field.

        i guess i’m looking for more games like Armored Core, which i should buy for the Verdict since it’s $19 on amazon.

        so how’s that game??

  • bloodiOS

    Can’t wait for Ar nosurge Genometric Concert side.Ao ~Tokikagura~Man, at first I could never understand why I like these songs so much (especially the 2nd and 8th track), but then I remember this:

  • PrinceHeir

    It got me thinking, after hearing about the new Macross Frontier Blu Ray Movies will have english subs in them.

    http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/12/18-1/video-macross-frontier-movie-set-to-include-english-subtitles

    we all know Macross will never be released to the west due to a certain company. so adding english options on the japanese version of games and anime could potentially bypass some of the bullshit that companies outside of Japan that are being an ass off.

    of course it’s not “officially” licensed outside of Japan, but rather an option for english speaking people in Japan.

    heck i do know they added english subs in other JPN anime BD’s like Kara no Kyoukai, Ghost in the Shell ARISE(which is available right now on righstuf), Code Geass Akito and many more.

    so i think this is a good way to drum support, especially for licenses that are near to impossible to obtain like Macross, anime’s that have alot of OP/ED and insert songs like Senki Zesshou Symphogear etc

    • Budgiecat

      I dont get it……Harmony Gold has had that license since 1984? And I’ve been hearing about Gainax/Tatsunoko fighting to get it back frm them for like 20 years now…How long is a freakin license good for??

      • PrinceHeir

        Tatsunoko actually managed to get the Speed Racer license back from some random publisher.

        i don’t know, to be honest i don’t even know why Harmony Gold is still alive all these years.

        their basically cock blocking a huge potential renewed interest of Macross series to the western world.

        heck i never expected the Yamato Remake series is coming(still hate the title Star Blazers)

        why can’t Macross do that as well!!

    Anyone interested in getting a physical copy of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for the PS4? The standard edition is currently available for only $39.99 on Amazon (it’s $59.99 in other places):

    http://www.amazon.com/Final-Fantasy-XIV-REALM-REBORN-PlayStation/dp/B00DCBDNW6/

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      $39.99 should be the correct price, though. Other places got it wrong.

      From Square:

      FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Standard Edition for the PlayStation®4 system will be available for $39.99. FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Collector’s Edition for the PlayStation®4 system will be available exclusively on the Square Enix Online Store for $79.99. A digital version of the FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Collector’s Edition will be available for $59.99 through the PlayStation Network. PlayStation®3 system and PlayStation®4 system Standard Edition owners can also choose to upgrade to a digital Collector’s Edition to receive the in-game items through the FINAL FANTASY XIV Account Management System, Mog Station. A free 30-day trial is included for new accounts, with monthly subscriptions starting at $12.99.

      • bloodiOS

        Oh, I see, thanks for the heads up, Sal. I initially thought it was odd that they decided to raise the price of the game for the PS4 version but didn’t question it too much, given that TB:DE was released at full price.

  • PrinceHeir

    looks like Hideki Kamiya is not happy with all the rumors about him making a game on Xbox One

    https://twitter.com/PG_kamiya/status/428762534837895168

    https://twitter.com/PG_kamiya/status/428763954236518400

    in other news, it’s a shame he’s not the director of Bayonetta 2, i do wonder what his next game is!

    i do hope he does keep the team check and follow Bayonetta the way he wants!

    https://twitter.com/PG_kamiya/status/419118474502234112

    • Gariya

      Kamiya is such a tsundere.

    • bloodiOS

      I don’t know, it read like Hideki Kamiya isn’t happy with all the people who aren’t happy about him making a game for the Xbox One.

      • PrinceHeir

        i forgot to add the previous tweets, it’s basically about the rumour Project Nagano being his game and rumored to be exclusive to the Xbox One.

        i think alot of people tweeted this and spread like wild fire.

        • Gariya

          The only thing I remember was said by the insider is that Project Nagano is the Platinum’s exclusive for Dudebrobox One, but I don’t think anyone mentioned Kamiya being the director.

        • bloodiOS

          So what were the tone of the tweets. Happy or angry?

          • PrinceHeir

            those were basically the follow ups since a lot of people have been asking the same question ever since the rumor started.

            whenever someone asks about Project Nagano, he retweets this message over and over again.

            i could understand why he feel angry at times.

            • bloodiOS

              Ah, so he basically got sick of saying “no comment on rumors and speculations”.

    • Budgiecat

      lol

    • DarkLegacy

      Lol. Kamiya doesn’t sound happy with the rumour about him making a game for Xbone

    • Elvick

      He’s not even the director of Bayonetta 2? No wonder what I’ve seen so far hasn’t gotten me excited. : Didn’t know that.

      That said, dude needs to FUCKING CHILL OUT. Block people. It’s not hard. I do it on twitter all the time. (that’s hyperbole :P)

      • PrinceHeir

        well he’s supervising how Bayonetta as a character should be handled.

        heck if they managed to make MGR without Kamiya, i’m sure Bayonetta 2 will be in the right hands.

        though what is Kamiya’s next game?? :D

        • Elvick

          Don’t get me wrong, I’ll buy Bayonetta 2… but I just can’t be excited based on what I’ve seen thus far.

    NTT DoCoMo Survey Ranks Best Gundam Series

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-29/ntt-docomo-survey-ranks-best-gundam-series

    1.Mobile Suit Gundam
    2.Mobile Suit Gundam Seed
    3.Mobile Suit Z Gundam
    4.Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny
    5.Gundam W
    6.Mobile Suit Gundam 00
    7.Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ
    8.Mobile Fighter G Gundam
    9.M.obile Suit Gundam V
    10.Gundam Build Fighters
    11.After War Gundam
    12.Turn A Gundam
    13.Mobile Suit Gundam AGE

    good list, however i would switch Gundam Seed with Gundam Wing, and Gundam 00 may be above or below compared to Destiny and vice versa.

    and yeah i enjoyed Destiny compared to Seed despite a lot of short comings.

    and wow poor After War Gundam and Turn A Gundam :(

    Build Fighters is even rank high than both of them!! nothing wrong with that though just pointing it out.

    though what was wrong about After War Gundam X? i haven’t seen much, but the animation is similar to Wing.

    and Turn A Gundam should have been made in the 35th Anniversary of the series if they really wanted to connect all the Gundams in one story.

    so what is your list of Top Gundams :)

    my Top list is

    Gundam Wing Series
    Gundam 00 Series
    Gundam Seed Series
    then the UC timeline series

    • Budgiecat

      Goddamn it why does Japan like Seed so much it sucks!

      • PrinceHeir

        well it has something to do with the a change of Jpop style in japan as well as the character designs seems to be more colorful and vibrant compared to the other older series.

        i would say Gundam Seed introduced me to JPOP songs XD

        the story is pretty good as well, take some notes from the original series and the rivalry between Kira and Athrun is pretty well made.

        add all the genetics and what it means to be a human, i think Seed really explored alot of new and old mix themes together.

        but i think it’s really the songs and voices that Japan really love about the series XD

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

      Figures. X is never featured in any of these lists and I’d still take it over most of those, lol.

      • Budgiecat

        X is in the list

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

          Derp. You’re right. I’m just so used to calling it ‘Gundam X’, lol. I forget “After War” is in the original title.

          Still, this list is ass.

          • Budgiecat

            Its okay I missed it at first glance too because of that

            btw I’m playing Gundam Climax UC right now on my PS2. This game runs in 60fps I think. I remember you said you didn’t like the controls….

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

              Ummm… No. Climax U.C. and Gundam UC are different games, lol. Gundam UC is for PS3, bro. The Unicorn specific title created by From Software.

              • Budgiecat

                No I know that I have both of them. I’m saying Climax runs at 60fps I believe. Was playing it today havent’ played since like uh 2007? Yeah game gets pretty difficult cant beat Scirrocco with Zeta Gundam and beating Four’s Psycho Gundam was bad enough

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

                  I was fine with the controls in that game. It was actually my favorite Gundam for PS2, but a lot of people didn’t care for it. The frame rate very well may be 60fps, but not many games on PS2 were.

                  • Budgiecat

                    Really. Coulda sworn you said something about the controls a few weeks ago when we were talking about Seed Never Ending Tomorrow but ah well.

                    Was trying to play some of the older Gundams like Journey To Jaburo and Lost War Chronices….can’t figure out why the developers didn’t feel like implementing analog control those two games.

                    Only one I didn’t play was One Year War did you play that?

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

                      The controls for the PS3 version of A.C.E. were ass and I might have mentioned the controls for Gundam UC, but they were just intimidating at first since you have 30+ buttons (including binds) in that game. They don’t particularly suck and they hardly take any time getting used to them, but yeah… Journey to Jaburo was horrible to play.

                      Stupid d-pad movement. I’m not sure if I played OYW or not though. There are too many of those damn games, they kind of just blur together after a point, lol.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Yeah they do. Which is why I’ve been on a mech game run tte past three weeks going throught them. Jaburo is just a pain in the ass t play; I dont know why it gets praised so much when other games at the time and even before it on the PS1 were using analog stick for controls and this wasn’t.

                      Gundam UC does play very fast and the controls can get really complex I agree. The whole game is just confusing to me but I see that it def has potential if you sit down and really try to figure everything out but it just feels really short like a demo game or something. The setup is just weird.

                      A.C.E R’s controls is really annoying yeah. I’m stuck at the Code Geass (?) night city stage where you have to destroy all those air ships. I end up usually picking a mech where you can transform to flight mode and free roam because the lock on camera really sucks in that game…

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

                      Yeah, Gundam UC was way short, lol. I got the platinum for it in under 24 hours, iirc. The only other game I managed to do that with was .hack//Versus.

    • LordKaiser

      That list is crap when I saw Seed on 2nd place, Wing and 00 are rated very low and the 8th MS team is not there. Anyway Unicorn Gundam takes them all. Unless the last 2 counts as OVAs.

  • Gariya

    How come western developers in general seem to not like to do boss fights?

    • http://Gematsu.com Vayne

      Injustice has no final boss?

    • DesmaX

      Because bosses don’t work in every genre

    • McPoo

      Because boss fights suck. Generally speaking.

      • Gariya

        So, which boss beat you to a pulp?

        • McPoo

          Mysterio in Spider-man 2.

          • Gariya

            …As in the PS1 game?

            • McPoo

              No the PS2 game based on the hit motion picture.

              In all seriousness I did actually play a good boss battle this afternoon. Bob Barbas in DmC. That’s how you do a boss fight.

              Normally though I just find them boring.

              • Gariya

                “the PS2 game”
                Oh, thank goodness.

                Also, if you haven’t already, try the DMC games pre-DmC. Cool boss fights there.

                • McPoo

                  I’ve played 1 and 3. I really liked 3 when I played it, none of the boss fights stick in my mind though. That Bob Barbas fight seems like the sort of thing I’ll remember.

  • jcsandrea

    Hi everybody! This is my first post despite of following very closely this amazing website (thanks Sal, great job!) and community. I wanted to gather your experience with the PlayStation 4. Currently it is available in us amazon store, but there are so many 1-star review and almost all of them are due to faulty consoles… I really want one and my only shot at purchasing one is from amazon since I live in Venezuela and here they are freaking expensives (like 14 times the minimum wage here). Have any of you got a broken PS4, if not how is it doing?

    • PrinceHeir

      welcome to the team!

      i don’t have a PS4, so i’m sure people will give feedbacks here soon!

      • jcsandrea

        Thanks for the welcome PrinceHeir :)

    • Anime10121

      Mines working fine, been, working fine since I bought it a couple months ago, but then again, I’ve rarely used it, as the only game I’ve extensively played on it was Contrast…

      Though next month, its gonna get put to the test though! Cuz when MGS Ground Zeroes drops, it is ON!! :D

      • jcsandrea

        Thank you for the feedback. Ground Zeroes is the reason why I want to purchase a PS4, did the same thing with MGS 2 on the PS2, MGS on PSX and of course MGS 4 on PS3.

        Watching the intros of those games the first time you play them, is something that makes you feel your new console was worth the investment :D

        • Anime10121

          Yep :D I feel the same, it IS the only reason I bought mine so early. Though I’ll likely pick up a few additional titles I wouldnt otherwise had I bought it later :P

    • icecoffemix

      Sample size is too small if you want to gather from this site. Sony said failure rate is well below industry standard (5% iirc) and beside fake amazon review from fanboy or astroturfer, a fraction of 5% of 4-5 million who have access to internet is still a lot.

      That’s what you’re seeing and even if they break Sony will replace it for you.

      • jcsandrea

        Thanks for the input icecoffemix, the thing is as I said I don’t live in the US.

        I live in Venezuela and Sony hasn’t officially launched the PS4 here (curious fact: they officually launched the PS3 about 2 years ago). So I don’t think I can send it for replacement at least not to Sony Venezuela.

        • icecoffemix

          You probably can, probably need to shoulder international shipping though but again this is assuming you got broken unit…

    • GhostNomad

      Welcome to the family!

      Far as the PS4, I’ve had mine since launch, played it almost every day, no issues. It’s already traveled quite a few miles with me as well, so I can say that it’s durable enough to not fall apart while being transported :P

      • jcsandrea

        Thanks GhostNomad :D well my PS4 will fly and travel more than a few miles before I get my hands on it.

    • Rezar

      I can’t give you my experience on the PS4 since I don’t have one.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I’ve had one since launch and it still works fine. Failure rate is very low, as has been said. I’d definitely recommend it, though the amount of games out on both PS4 and XB1 right now are little.

      Also, don’t be one of those guys who gets rid of their PS3/360. There’s still stuff coming out.

      • jcsandrea

        Thanks for the reply Sal! And don’t worry my PS3 isn’t going anywhere… I still have many games that are waiting to be played (currently playing Valkyria Chronicles, next in line the Yakuza series and Nier) and of course as you said too many good games are coming: Dark Souls 2, Castlevania LoS 2 and Persona 5 whenever it comes.

      • Shippoyasha

        My one huge issue with PS4 right now is the reports of peeling off of analog tops on some controllers. Some reports being that it’s happening with only a few hours of usage for some people. I truly hope that is not the case for most batches of the console’s release. There’s some rumors that some batches have a seriously malfunctioning analog sticks or even the top trigger buttons.

        • Elvick

          Hasn’t happened to me at all.

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      PS4 hasn’t broken since I got it on launch, still playing Japanese imports on my PS3 but the PS4 is an awesome console

      • jcsandrea

        Thanks for the input ShinAsura, I will keep my PS3 to play all the great games that are launching this year. Wish I could read japanese in order to import games, but I can hardly recognize some hiragana.

        • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

          Well you can always start somewhere, I did

    • DarkLegacy

      I haven’t had a broken PS4 since launch. I’m still playing games like Knack, AC IV, Killzone etc. But I love playing on my PS4, and I pretty much can’t wait for the games that will be released this year like InFAMOUS: Second Son, MGSV: Ground Zeroes, Watch Dogs and Destiny.

      Anyway welcome to Gematsu and enjoy your stay

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Mine runs perfect, be careful of amazon 1 star reviews 50+% are lies

    • Wolf Star

      My Ps4 still works since Launch Day (November 15,2013) still working and good :) I love it ^^ and welcome to this amazing group :D you will like it here ^^ also I got my first Ps4 game yesterday :D which is Tomb Raider ^^
      I got Ps4 because of Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3!! :3

      • DarkLegacy

        Still thinking about buying Tomb Raider

    • https://twitter.com/Panda_castro Panda

      Mine is working fine.Got it around the end of November. I’m playing some PS3 games right now.

    • Elvick

      Mine works fine. Got my launch day. I’ve had a few games crash on me, but it’s not very often. There were a few issues with it earlier on, but were fixed in patches. Like, the system used to restart while managing captures (screens/videos).

      I love my PS4. Can’t wait to play some inFamous: Second Son! :D

  • KingNigma

    Just a reminder for anyone who hasn’t downloaded Four Swords yet the anniversary edition is on the e-shop for free until Feb 2.

  • bloodiOS

    *Sigh* Reading “death-flags the series” is like waiting for the climax of NTR… you know destination you will eventually arrive at will be painful but you want to watch the journey unfolds anyway…

    • GhostNomad

      I feel ya. Even when I know better, a part of me can’t help but hope that there’s gonna be some sort of loophole that’ll make everything okay.

    • Fainaru Luna

      btw hows Eyeshild 21? I watched a few sports anime Slam Dunk, Touch, etc just need a opinion is all

      • Gariya

        AMAZING. The anime ended during an important tournament, though.

        Pick up the manga, much better. Likable characters, great art, good build-up etc. One of the best sport manga to ever exist.

        • Fainaru Luna

          Alright I’ll give it a go thnxs

    The playlist for Gundam Extreme VS Full Boost is finished at the moment (at least until I start recording co-op play anyway). Unfortunately, I had to remove missions 36 and 40 due to copyright claims by BANDAI_CO_LTD, so that sucked, but please don’t blame me for that ;w;

    I want to keep my account in good standing and these videos were blocked worldwide anyway, haha.

      More SB4 videos pls.

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

        I have to reupload the last part to Mitsunari’s route again since the audio just disappeared on it, lol. I disputed the audio claim, the audio was restored, then it was removed a couple of days later.

        After I reupload that, I can finish uploading my Magoichi playthrough, but I’m going to try and play Full Boost online, so I won’t be able to upload any of that right now =3=

  • bloodiOS

    Just ordered volume 8 of Book Girl. With this, I’ve got the main story covered and can finally start reading it. So thankful that Yen Press decided to localize this series (Kieli, and Spice and Wolf.) Now if only someone would continue localizing Full Metal Panic!

    • Kattaro

      I only have 3 first volumes of Book Girl and 4 volumes of Spice & Wolf. I want to order more when first volume of Sword Art Online will be released :D

  • bloodiOS

    Can’t wait for the relaunch of Celestian Tales: Old North. It’s easily my most favorite Kickstarter project after Liege.

  • Rikimaru

    Flappy Bird is so rage inducing, how’s everybody doing?

    • DarkLegacy

      I’m doing fine. What about you?

      • Rikimaru

        Not too shabby, better than last week for sure.

    • Budgiecat

      I cant stop farting but otherwise I’m good

      • Rikimaru

        Don’t worry you’re losing weight. I think.

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

          Actually, farting would just indicate that he’s eating too fast and/or too much and it’s putting pressure on his intestines because he’s not giving his system enough time to digest the food properly.

          • Rikimaru

            Im still just in highschool I dont know anything about it Im sorry.

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

              It was more of a joke, really ._.

              Granted, that’s what happens, but I wasn’t picking on you or anything X3

              • Rikimaru

                I have the tendency to say sorry to every little thing that I do. But yeah sorry(See) I couldn’t understand.

    • Elvick

      I don’t play shovelware.

      • Rikimaru

        I don’t either, but watching other people have tantrums about a flappy fucking bird is hilarious.

  • bloodiOS

    So I was just digging around Blueside’s channel and found this:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DG4lgpD9knM&html5=True

    Nothing we haven’t seen before but it has some added English narrations so I suppose this pretty much guarantees that the game will be localized.

    I hope that White Fox studio will do justice to the anime adaptation of Akame ga KILL! Also, I don’t mind the TV version but the Blu-ray releases better have a whole lot of gore. I do wonder how long it’s going to take from the moment the project is greenlit to when it’s finally ready to air…

    • icecoffemix

      Oh it’s by White Fox? At least the animation quality is assured. Any word on the director?

      • bloodiOS

        Aside from knowing that White Fox is handling it, I believe not much (more like nothing) else has been released to the public.

        • Kattaro

          White Fox? That’s great news then I don’t have to worry about quality of the adaptation. Hmm I guess winter or fall are the most possible periods.

    Is anyone doing anything for the Super Bowl today?

    I have about 10 people coming over. We’ve got beer, snacks (dem Tostitos), and we’re ordering pizza from the best spot (and most expensive spot – it’s cool, everyone’s pitching in) in Brooklyn (L&B Spumoni Garden). Also, we’re getting wings and fries from the pizzeria up my block. Personally, I’m not too big a fan of wings, but I’m sure everyone else will eat them.

    Looking forward to a fun night. Hopefully some good commercials. I don’t care too much about the game. When I was younger, I was much more into football. Eagles were my team. Since then, though, they’ve pretty much fallen off as a big player, I’ve heard. I used to follow them back when they had McNabb, Owens, Pinkston, Westbrook, Dawkins, and all them. They were all good players.

      On Friday, I watched some anime with a friend, then played pool with some more friends later that night. And yesterday, I bummed out and watched TV all day.

      I’m looking forward to Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. And Outlast. Also Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare when it comes to PS4.

      • Locksus

        Sounds great. I haven’t been able to do much anything, apart from studying that is. I’ve got matriculation exams coming up, so I’m a bit stressed because of that. I’ve got American history exam tomorrow, but that shouldn’t be a biggie (hopefully).
        I haven’t played on a home console for months now, but I’d really love to get both Wii U and a PS4 later this year, if possible. Some neat games coming up imo.

  • Rikimaru

    So since Ive been playing P4G, I love it very much, Ive been thinking about Persona 5, its premise, story, and what the main character would look like. My question to you brilliant people is, If it would be possible, by any chance, that the main character would be Sho MInazuki? Would you like to see that? To top it off Id like to know your opinion,
    Minato Arisato or Yu Narukami?
    Thanks.

    • 罪罰

      I don’t think so, someone completely new.

      ugh ……they really shoulda just reboot it….or leave it alone…

      • Gariya

        Didn’t they say that this sequel also works as a reboot somewhat?

        • Budgiecat

          How can it be a reboot with the same exact designs

    • Elvick

      There’s a human element… *MEH*

      I wasn’t (and never have been) too huge on the original Transformers concept though. So I haven’t gotten around to too many ‘regular’ shows. So, I don’t know if that is always present or not in them.

      I just thought Beast Wars was epic because it had no human element to it. It was so much better.

      And I would love for Transformers to do the same thing.

      Granted, I enjoy Rescue Bots… despite it’s child-friendly hook. And so far I like Prime, but I could do without the people in it. The opening of the show was amazing. Then yay… kids. *finger twirl*

      Watched the first Transformers movie and hated it so much. Too much of the stupid people. I don’t give a fuck.

      • Budgiecat

        The original Transformers toy line in Japan before it became a Marvel comic, cartoon series and a Hasbro official toy line, was a combination of Takara’s Microman toy line and a series called Diaclone, which I believe both of them had the Micromen as pilots of the “Transformers”; so they never were supposed to be sentient from the beginning.
        It was only when it came to the U.S. and Marvel comics had to write a storyline for it (much like they did for Micronauts of the Mego toy line (which was a localized toyline of again Takara’s Microman series), and so Marvel was the one to decide to make them sentient as Hasbro scrapped the Microman tiny figures that originally came with each Transformer.
        If you look at original Grimlock toy for example, he still had the cockpit for the Microman on his back that you could fold out.

        • Elvick

          Still dislike it. Wouldn’t mind if it was more Gundam-y with it.

          • Budgiecat

            Yeah the Transformer movie scripts were stupid and at times down right insulting, and there was way too much focus on the humans and the fights were often too quick and confusing to watch and the robot designs make them look like scrap heap designs by some failing starving artist…

    Can’t wait to see third episode of Code Geass: Akito the Exiled. I’m so glad that it’s a series of OVA and not movies (don’t have to wait for half a year before the Blu-ray is released.)

    • GhostNomad

      Is there a site you’d recommend which provides timely updates of new/ongoing anime, preferably with decent quality and subtitles?

      • bloodiOS

        I don’t really know. I usually just lurk around Commie;Subs or UTW and just watch any new show they have (that interests me.)

        • GhostNomad

          Now that you mention it, I’ve seen a lot of stuff from Commie/HorribleSubs but never checked to see if they have actual sites. Seeing that they do, that’s pretty much what I was looking for :D

          • bloodiOS

            HorribleSubs pretty much rips stuffs from Crunchyroll anyway, so you might as check there for trailers and updates before picking up any of HorribleSubs’ show.

      • Martian Wong

        Just changed it. If you can, please sign and pass it along to your friends.

        • bloodiOS

          I signed it. Also, perhaps you should try to make it clearer that you want it to be brought to PSN for PS4? A lot of people seem to be asking for the game to be available on other systems like PS3, Vita, etc. But I’m afraid they are missing the point.

          I think it would be better to convince Sega to only port the game to PS4. After all, it is a much more powerful system in comparison to the Xbox 360, and is also much easier to develop for. They should not have much trouble brute forcing a port to the PS4 and still manage to make it turn out decent. The charm here is to let Sega clearly understand that it’s an opportunity for them to gain profits for only minimal amount of efforts. They are not dealing with the difficult system that is the PS3, or the unpopular device that is the Vita but the PS4, a powerful next-gen console with a rapidly growing install base.

          • icecoffemix

            Game like that actually thrive on Vita. But I guess it’s different for big entity like sega.

      I’m just waiting for release dates for Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright, KH 2.5 and ToX 2, and if I get a Vita in time, probably get Mind Zero as well. There’s other games I’m interested in, but I can wait for those~

        My reaction to roaming Sankaku Complex:

    • McPoo

      I’d like an app that looked like a small set of scales from the top down.

      When you open it, it gives you options on what weight you want it to read as when something gets placed on the screen.

      Then I can place my balls on it, it’ll give the pre-set reading, and I can show my friends that I’ve got really heavy balls and they’ll think it’s real!

      Do that, I’d give you an A+ for it.

  • new_tradition

    Playing as Naotora in SB4. Originally I was worried she was going to be really slow and cumbersome to handle like Shimazu is at times, but she’s not that bad. Plus she’s got some surprising combo moves I’ve discovered accidentally. I’m pretty sure there are people that have her skill set mastered, but messing around and discovering new things on my own makes me happy :3

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

      Yeah, she can seem quite slow at first, but her combo linking is ridiculous (forward + triangle + R1 being the easiest and most OP).

      • new_tradition

        The easiest one I remember was Triangle, and then when mooks are twirling, Square and R1.

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

      So, I just watched the commercial and I honestly didn’t see anything wrong with it. I think that the only people who honestly have a problem with it are overzealous patriots who believe that America should only belong to true Americans, you know… Whatever the hell that means. So many people forget that we are all foreigners in some way or another and the country itself was even founded by foreigners.

      There are many different ethnicities in America and it’s honestly surprising how so many people can forget that, despite seeing them on a daily basis (unless you’re living under a rock like these guys seem to be). It’s very ignorant of these so called “patriots” to claim this isn’t American when they apparently don’t understand that without the people… The nation is nothing.

      The people are what make a nation, the nation isn’t what makes the people.

      • Budgiecat

        lol I wonder what would have happened if the commercial was sung by a Native American in the Navajo language……probably the same ignorant reaction…

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

          Probably. It’s because of statements like this, which are shared by the majority, that make us look like a very ignorant group of people… And people honestly want to wonder why others around the world despise us and think we’re arrogant.

        • Gigus

          I wouldn’t be surprised.

      • MrFinalgamer

        ironic since english is not even this place’s native language. so technically it should’ve been sung on Navajo…or if they REALLY want the english in there, they would need to use old, british english…

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

                I’m weak to good deals and no bs gamestop, eb games, GAME, Zavvi, and etc. To be honest I think I spent only 500 or less on (20 or more) games last year, and we all know gaming is a very expensive hobby.

      I really want to be excited, but for some reason it’s not doing anything for me. I mean, on paper, it should be a wonderful game. Survival horror? Yep. Shinji Mikami? You don’t even have to ask. RE, Dino Crisis, DMC, GodHand, AND Vanquish?! I should be in love with this game but after all the trailers/gameplay I’ve seen, it just doesn’t click. I want to love it but I don’t, and that worries me.

      I’ll wait until some friends (and people I talk to on here) pick it up and play it so I can get their impressions before spending my own money.

  • bloodiOS

    Say, what the heck is this?What’s up with the ugly in-game graphics…

    • GhostNomad

      If this were an extremely, extremely basic concept for a PS3 game, it wouldn’t be too bad. Based on the YouTube description, I’m understanding that this is an MMORPG, and I like the idea especially when you throw in the different characters/weapon skills. But the in-game characters look…. Weird to say the least, and considering that this is supposed to be a PS4 game….. Dayum.

      [EDIT] Watching that a second time just reminded me of Blade & Soul….. And how much I would love it if that happened to make an appearance on the PS4 as well. I know, I know, I’m getting ahead of myself since that game isn’t even out in NA on the PC yet, but still!

      • bloodiOS

        Yeah, Team Bloodlust should work with Sony and port the game to the PS4 (the system should have no problem handling it) and then localize it… it would be so fucking wonderful!

      If that were the case, DriveClub would have the potential to be a stunning experience.

My imagination tends to go wild randomly but let’s just say I’m keeping my expectations reasonable :P

      • icecoffemix

        Heh, me too and since it’s Sony it’s hard to imagine the pricing they will put to that gadget, especially when you see their “personal theater” sorry-excuse-of-a VR’s price.

    • Elvick

      I think price is always going to hold back things like Oculus from the mainstream environment.

        At $300 it would have a fair chance. Heck if they offer better version for $100 more (OLED etc), I would bite with no hesitation.

        I don’t have much hope for Sony’s VR price though.

    Finally getting around to watching the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I saw the first two in theaters. Re-watched ‘em on Netflix. Now the 3rd on DVD.

    I have the 4th on bluray I think. I know I got a digital copy with it so probably. Not even sure wtf that one is about.

    Didn’t know what the 3rd one was about until re-watching the 2nd one anyway. :P

    As I remembered, I enjoy Jack Sparrow’s character and hate the length of the movies.

      good lord i feel for all the popular boys or just anyone with a girlfriend that looks at them with puppy eyes expecting them to eat it

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

        I’d have to tell them something like, “Thanks! I’ll be sure to take my time and enjoy them later.”, but as soon as they leave… I’d have them examined in a lab, lol.

    • bloodiOS

      Personally, I’m fine with blood and saliva since they’re in liquid form and can easily blend in with other ingredients without having a huge impact on the taste. However,… hair?! Fucking gross!

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

        …How can you think hair is gross, but be fine with saliva and blood since diseases can be transmitted through those?

        • bloodiOS

          I’ll take my chances. These are honmei, man! They’re product of love, so the girl should’ve thought of your well-being before giving it to you. And beside, eating a chocolate with blood and saliva mixed in it wouldn’t be bad since they’re all blended in and you can’t feel them, whereas having a strand or several strands of hair stuck to my teeth while chewing on chocolate would feel very disturbing.

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

            I wouldn’t even need the hair to be disturbed. I’m already disturbed when I receive the chocolate. I think you’re just a bit more tolerant to this because you’ve got a thing for yanderes, lol.

            • bloodiOS

              *LOL* I suppose so. Personally, I think that as long that it’s disease-free, a girl adding a bit of her blood, obtained by pricking the tip of her finger (and not anywhere else), and saliva in their honmei chocolates is rather erotic. In my opinion, weird quirks are fine as long that they’re practiced in moderation.

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

                I guess I’m just more of a “clean freak” then. I can’t imagine doing something like this to someone, much less participating in it as the receiver of homemade chocolates or not. Fortunately, I don’t like chocolate much as it is.

                It’s kind of a comfort food, along with ice cream, for me, really. I only eat it when I’m really depressed or something, but I certainly don’t have a sweet tooth for it. I guess on that note, it wouldn’t be particularly odd for me to reject the chocolates if my girlfriend knew me well enough… Of course if that were true, she’d know not to give me chocolates in the first place.

          • Gigus

            @-@

      • PrinceHeir

        same thing!

        hair is indigestible, once you bite the chocolate, you would feel those “strings” and who knows if the girl had showered or not XD

        a bite or two isn’t that bad, blood well i probably need it for laboratory results XD

    • GhostNomad

      I don’t mind the blood. The saliva is kind of a different matter. If she licked the chocolate and then gave it to me, that’s cool but for some reason the thought of a chick spitting into chocolate mix kinda weirds me out. Suppose if I liked her enough, I wouldn’t mind. Hell, it might even be kinda kinky!

      Hair is just a no-no. Even if it’s from a person I love, a single hair in my mouth is enough to make me stop enjoying the chocolate. Nothing kinky on that end <.<

      • Gigus

        OMG?! You’re a sub?! No wonder you’re roomie likes to tease you! I bet she hocked a loogey in those chocolate meatballs she made for you lol XD

        • GhostNomad

          Since when does liking blood make me a sub? O.o YOU’VE GOT IT ALL WRONG, MR. ROBOTO! GET YOUR CIRCUITS EXAMINED!

          • Gigus

            All them caps spell liar :P. Plus you calling it “kinky” gives it away XD Wish your friend can join in so we can pick on you lol. Poor doggy. I’m being mean XP

            • GhostNomad

              ALL THEM CAPS SPELL MANLY.

              And yes, blood and saliva are kinky, but only when I go get them myself! As far as what I said about it being kinky if she spits in the chocolate mix, that’s a visual that I would rather not share since it’s likely going to get my comment modded :D

              • Gigus

                lol you love the abuse XD. Our first ever sub in the gematsu forums XP

      • bloodiOS

        Spitting?! Such barbaric imagination you have. You should imagine the young lady slowly bends down toward the mixing bowl. She then slowly sticks out her tongue and lets her fine saliva runs down along its edges. As the saliva slowly departing her shapely tip and drip into the mixing bowl, her face begins to blush as she thinks about the happy moment when you put her chocolate in your mouth, bite down hard, and gulp it down like a beast. Man, imagine all that love!

        • GhostNomad

          That about covers the ‘kinky’ part. There’s a few details left out such as her wearing a smile and nothing else, and then maybe letting me watch! But that last part likely wouldn’t happen since the goal is to get me to consume the blood/saliva without being aware of it :P

          • bloodiOS

            Yeah, I imagine she would let you watch her only when she feels like letting her fine saliva dripping straight into your mouth in the same fashion.

            • GhostNomad

              Unless she’s a yandere. In that case she’d probably try to cut me (probably non-lethal) to keep me from finding out. Or she might just cut me if I try to leave >.>

              Come to think of it, how would a yandere react if I acted just as crazy and pushed her buttons to see just how far she’d go? <.< You probably shouldn't answer that since the conversation might take a turn for the weird, but I suppose it's something to think about :D

              • bloodiOS

                I think you’re confused, my friend. A yandere would always tries her best to please you, no matter what kind of shameful or humiliating situation you want to put her through. As long that she is the only one in your sight, she will be your pet or even your toy. Just be careful not letting your sight strays elsewhere and happen to land on some random chicks…

                • GhostNomad

                  Far as I understand, yandares are the ones who love you just a liiiiiiiiiittle too much, to the extent that they’d kill anyone seen as a rival, and might even kill you if they decide that they can’t have you and if they can’t have you, no one can.

                  • bloodiOS

                    So, there. You see, she loves you a bit too much to start slashing at you after you found out about her dirty little secret. She will instead starts crying and begging you not to hate her. She would only flip the Y switch when you decide to break up with her.

                    • GhostNomad

                      But say that I don’t find the idea of blood in my chocolate appealing and take off. Wouldn’t she just assume I’m going away forever and go all psycho on me because she doesn’t want me to disappear?

                    • bloodiOS

                      Depends on where you’re taking off to. Where are you going in that situation?

                    • GhostNomad

                      If I were a normal human being, I’d probably be going far, far away from the crazy chick and would likely do my best to avoid her.

                    • bloodiOS

                      Okay, well, you see… The thing is a yandere can be quite a positive thinker (regarding her relationship with you). She would definitely thinks that you are angry at her for doing “something wrong” but not that you hate her or want nothing to do with her anymore. So, chances are, she already had some tracking devices on you (or secretly planted in your brain), so she will be knocking your door the next day (at the place you took off to), and start persuading you not to be angry with her anymore. So, until you speak the magic word and let the glass hits the concrete, she will keep following you as if you’re both still in love.

                    • GhostNomad

                      That doesn’t sound as fun as her going psycho and trying to cut off my legs so I can’t run away from her. I like my women crazy!

                      Then again, looking at where my tastes have gotten me, maybe I should reconsider :D

                    • bloodiOS

                      Well, that’s just you being hasty. As soon as you tell her you want to break up with her. She will be doing her best to persuade you to think otherwise.

                    • GhostNomad

                      Including trying to cut/break my legs so I can’t run away?! I like where this is goin’!

                      Come to think of it, maybe I’ve been watching a little too much of the Monogatari series, but I rather like Senjougahara’s type. In fact, I very much enjoy the relationship she has with Araragi! I’d feel right at home if I were to be dropped in his shoes. Except I don’t see myself fondling 11-year old girls. Or my own sisters.

                    • bloodiOS

                      Yeah, I don’t see myself stealing my sisters’ first kiss either. If your girl is someone like Senjougahara then it’s fine but if it’s someone like Yuno Gasai…

                    • GhostNomad

                      Though I definitely wouldn’t complain if my hot classmate turned cat girl and tried to attack me while wearing lingerie. Where do I sign up?!

                    • GhostNomad

                      Well, Hidan was just kind of a hasty type who jumped into a fight with no consideration due to his immortality. Possessed Toto was just a little crazy and wanted to fight Wretched Egg so that the two of them can kill each other. Plus considering what he did to Wretched Egg in the past…… Yeeeeah.

                      Neither of them would be considered masochistic in my book :D

                    • Gigus

                      Ugh… Hidan enjoys pain he stabs himself to kill others while using his jutsu. From what I can remember from the translation it said he feels the injuries he inflicts on himself.
                      Toto (Hagire) was crazy but he enjoys getting hurt from the wretched egg. How many times did he mind swap deadmen already? (2) But I think the entire cast of deadman wonderland are masochist XD. How many times did they fight to near death already. From what I remember, Crow took a liking to Rei takashima when she took his right eye XD

                    • GhostNomad

                      You might have a point about Hidan. It’s been far too long since I cared about Naruto.

                      As far as Toto, the way I saw it, he loved conducting research (basically torturing) on Wretched Egg. His research lasted longer than his original body would last, so he had to hop a couple of times, each time finding a better body so that he could kill Wretched Egg (and die at the same time because he would have no more desire to live once his experiment is over).

                      And Crow, I wouldn’t say he necessarily took a liking to Rei when she took his eye. I saw his short conversation with Ganta afterward as him having accepted the consequences of losing, not necessarily getting any satisfaction out of it. Rei’s the one who finds pleasure in hurting others, so if I were to take a guess, I’d say that if you pretended to like whatever she was doing to you, it might kill her buzz, so to speak.

                      Of course it could just make her more interested and you’d wind up dead, but at least you wouldn’t have to suffer anymore after she’s done :D

                    • Gigus

                      XD but I still have my point. And I can’t consider myself a masochist though. Just watching my pre-orders not arrive anytime sooner is too much pain to bare. But you on the other hand, are really a sub lol. It seems like you’ve taken a liking to yandere.

                    • GhostNomad

                      Nah, you got it wrong. It’s actually a tsundere girl that I’d love to have. I like the apparently crazy/dangerous type who is actually very kind and loving but only to a very select few. I’m not exactly cool with the actual crazy ones who would hurt/kill my friends because they’re seen as rivals for my love and affection! Thankfully I haven’t had to deal with someone who had a serious case of the crazies :D

              • bloodiOS

        Because I don’t remember my friend code by heart and am not sure if pressing the Home button while a download is going would end up cancelling said download :D

        Pokemon Y, SMT IV, Senran Kagura Burst, Code of Princess, Bravely Default (demo, got the CE preordered), just purchased Fire Emblem off the eShop, Project X Zone, MH3U, SMT Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, LoZ OOT, and From The Abyss.

        Slightly underwhelming but considering that I’ve had my 3DS for a little over a month and a half, suppose it’s not too bad :P

      I respect the parents’ decision but I can’t say I entirely agree with it. The kids who bullied their son should be held accountable for their actions and learn that decisions have consequences.

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

        Yeah. They should have some kind of consequence for their actions for sure. Otherwise, they’re going to go through life thinking they can just get away with anything.

      • Elvick

        I just outright disagree with it.

        You learn to do the right thing, when you realize the wrong things have negative consequences. If you get away with doing the wrong things, you just keep doing them.

        And the whole “punishment doesn’t always work” line is annoying. No punishment at all doesn’t work either. And it gives little context to when punishment doesn’t work. (usually doesn’t work if parents are wishy washy about punishment, like going back on punishments or threats with no follow through)

    • Gigus

      Thats really sad. Reminds me of a guy I was long time friends with since elementary school. He really liked powerpuff girls. The difference was he beat up any guy who teased him about it.

    • PrinceHeir

      poor kid.

      he basically lives in a society where people dictate which roles you have to be in or else your being branded as an outcast.

      nothing wrong with liking this show. i don’t get it though, why does one have to conform to some peer pressure BS?

      i guess wearing pink clothes makes you gay? or having make up somehow people think your a woman?

      i thought this was the land of the free??

      it’s funny i studied this human sexuality last 2012 and got an idea on what gender roles america has “assigned” to.

      Men should only do the grunt work and woman should only focus on less work and more at home cleaning and doing some chores.

      although there’s growing evidence of women getting more higher position in the field, they still get paid less than mean just because.

      i even have fellow student in the class who is a old and a father and he said he doesn’t allow his little girl playing some fire trucks because “it’s just wrong” little girls should only stick to barbie dolls etc.

      fucking lol,

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

        This kind of thing has been going on since the 60’s, man. Granted, more people are accepting of gays than they used to be, but there’s still a problem with assigning genders based on hobbies, clothing, body language, etc.

        Honestly, I don’t think that will ever go away. The only reason I say that is because it basically goes against everything that makes a human a human. Regardless of how many people come together to understand something, there will always be that one person going, “This is wrong!” and the next thing you know… They will have a following.

        This kind of mentality will never end.

    • Budgiecat

      Why didn’t he fight back? I feel bad for him but he should have been watching Fist of the North Star instead…

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

        “Why didn’t he fight back?”

        Look, man, I know we’ve had our differences and such, but asking why an 11 year old won’t fight back, especially after it specifically states that he doesn’t believe in that sort of thing due to the morals that MLP teach him, is just insulting. You really don’t understand anything, do you?

          I do understand. An 11 year old isnt as young as you think .Sure its sad but you can train kids to be confident and fight back at a much lesser age than that. I know because I used to teach. There’s a difference between not wanting to fight and defending yourself. You dont even have to literally fight; its about the confidence within yourself to know that you can. And when thats projected, people dont mess with you.

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

            >An 11 year old isnt as young as you think .

            No, really? I had no idea. I was never an 11 year old at any point in my life.

            >Sure its sad but you can train kids to be confident and fight back at a much lesser age than that.

            While we’re at it, let’s also teach them that they are superior to people they view are weaker than themselves.

            >There’s a difference between not wanting to fight and defending yourself.

            There’s also a difference in defending yourself and taking your case to a higher power, and letting them resolve the issue (see: school, parents, etc.).

            >You dont even have to fight; its about the confidence within yourself to know that you can.

            Sorry, but an 11 year old has no business being “confident” in fighting. What kind of message is that sending to him? Why can’t he just live his life as a boy without needing to fight? Why must he resort to violence just to be accepted?

            >And when thats projected, people dont mess with you.

            Isn’t that the same mentality dictators have? They would rather have people fear them than respect them. This is not a path an 11 year old should be taking.

            This just comes from personal experience though. I’ve always preferred a more diplomatic approach than use of violence to solve a problem. Just because someone else is acting like a barbarian does not justify my actions of being one as well.

            • Budgiecat

              I dont know why you typed all that like I said it all boils down to a simple thing: confidence. If you teach a kid confidence than the will show through them and others will see it and respect him more for it regardless what he likes.
              Respect through confidence is not fear through intimidation.

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

                Lol no

                I’m pretty sure he had confidence in what he liked, but people beat him up because he was so confident about it. Confidence doesn’t stop someone from kicking your teeth in.

                • Budgiecat

                  I’m not talking about confidence in what he likes.

                  I’m talking about confidence within himself.

                  That’s not something everyone automatically has and as such, sometimes needs to be taught. Confidence does stop someone from kicking your teeth in if you know how to project it and if you’re trained.

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

                    >Confidence does stop someone from kicking your teeth in if you know how to project it and if you’re trained.

                    Hahaha. Okay, guy. Yeah… Maybe you should stop watching so much anime.

                    Confidence isn’t some magical barrier that keeps away bad guys or something. You don’t have this “aura” about you that lets people know to not fuck with you. Again, he was 11 years old… He’s not a fucking grown man, so please stop treating him as such.

                    An 11 year old isn’t going to be able to protect himself against a group of bullies unless he’s training to be a professional martial artist. Everyone shouldn’t have to undergo such training though just because people don’t agree with what you like. It’s ridiculous to expect kids to have to go through that.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Actually in my opinion all kids should be taught to defend themselves. There’s nothing ‘magical’ or anime, or “professional” about it.
                      Its what I did as a job.. I’ve taught more bullied kids than you know. I’ve trained them to become black belts and I saw first hand how many of them were too intimidated to do anything until they were able to discover they all had potential. I had to even deal with abusive parents of some of these kids not just teaching them how to handle schools bullies.
                      What the hell do we even learn in school gym class? Nothing really. That time imo should be allocated to teaching kids self defense. It’s obvious you have no clue on the subject and are ignorant on it so we’re probably done here.

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

                      It’s not that I’m ignorant on the subject. I’ve discussed martial arts with a friend of mine that took Aikido for a few years by the off chance that he would have to defend himself. However, he was a grown man. Again, you expecting children to become these black belts (who actually have their hands registered as a “weapon” and can kill someone if they’re not careful) just to defend themselves is outrageous. That’s not to say I condone bullying and think there shouldn’t be anything done about it, however… We just have different ways of dealing with it.

                      I just choose to use words to get my point across, whereas you believe problems can only be solved through your fists. Neither of these plans work all the time though, so it simply boils down to a difference in opinion. For example, let’s say you do train as a kid and get confidence in yourself.

                      Scenario A: Trained kid kicks the opposing party’s ass when they try to beat him up. The following day, they bring more people and one of the members has a knife on them as well. Kid gets stabbed and possibly dies.

                      Scenario B: Untrained kid gets his ass kicked when trying to reason with the bully (or bullies). Bully (or bullies) possibly move onto their next target after growing tired of beating him up.

                      As I said before though, neither of these solutions guarantees a particular scenario 100% of the time. If you’re trained to defend yourself, sure… They may just leave you alone. However, you could also end up attracting more attention to yourself when they realize how tough you are and bring weapons the next time, so in an odd turn of events… Self defense actually did more harm than good.

                      Still, please don’t claim I’m ignorant on the matter though. I was bullied when growing up as a kid, mentally and physically, due to being autistic. I just prefer the more diplomatic approach to solving situations, since I hate confrontation, and sometimes they just grow bored with you and move onto someone more interesting to them, but other times they don’t.

                    • Budgiecat

                      FYI the whole urban myth of “hands registered as a weapon” is BS.

                      You’re kinda downplaying and simplifying the value and purpose of learning martial arts and what that all entails but I cant blame you for that since you didn’t take any and you didn’t really listen to anything I initially posted which is a shame. Martial arts is 90% mental, 10% physical.

                      You’re still stuck on the ‘well he knows MA now so that means he must respond with violence which will lead to more violence and that is wrong’.
                      Thats not always the case and is not the sole point of learning a martial art nor is it the sole intention of reacting to a conflict. You’re looking at it from a one dimensional on the surface angle with only one purpose. I suggest you reread what I typed earlier…

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

                      A myth? Yeah, no. I’m starting to doubt your credentials for teaching, man. It certainly isn’t an urban myth or anything of the sort.

                      My friend that was taking Aikido brought one of his friends by one day (when he was still living in the country anyway) and the guy got his black belt in Jiu Jitsu after a good 10 years or so (he’s been teaching at this place about 30-45 minutes from where I live for 3-5 years though, iirc). I remember asking him about this, mainly because my friend had told me his hands were considered a weapon, legally, due to reaching black belt status.

                      So, I had to ask him if it was true and sure enough, he admitted to it, surprisingly. I thought my friend was joking, but he’s actually been cautioned by the police a couple of times after some guys tried to rough him up at a bar due to his use of excessive force, since apparently he did a bit more damage to them than he should have. You certainly don’t have to preach to me about what you know in regards to martial arts though, man. I used to train freestyle as a teenager (mainly just a mixture of Jeet Kune Do and Kajukenbo). Did I ever actually use it in a fight or anything like that? No.

                      A friend I grew up with and I used to just spar from time to time when I would visit. Granted, his mother didn’t approve, but we would never intentionally go for the face or vital areas. The hardest thing wasn’t even the physical aspect of it, but the mind games (and that even carries over into fighting games). So yeah, please just go ahead and get off your soap box, and take a seat, man. You’re not telling me anything I don’t already know here.

                      Plus, if I wanted to extend this knowledge any further when it comes to battle, I’m sure I can find whatever I’m looking for (well and beyond your knowledge) from Sun Tzu anyway. Now, how about instead of butting heads with me about this repeatedly, acting so conceited, you just do us both a favor and walk away.

                      I’ve already drawn a line in the sand here. It’s up to you to take the hint. Learn to pick your battles, man.

                    • Budgiecat

                      omg its not true lmao I’ve tons of friends that train in MA and even two that are currently new in the UFC, one of which gave me a plaque as thanks for training him when he was younger so if you wanted me to take a snap photo of it I could but I doubt you care that much. I’m 3rd rank and was an instructor that ran a school and some of my students were police officers and we used to do seminars and they’d help set up free women’s self defense clinics for us to do , so I think I’d have known if I had to “register mah lethal hands with the authorities” since I had frequent interaction with them.
                      Its not preaching; its letting you know I had experience dealing with troubled kids. And your dabble in “freestyle” training is obviously not the same as someone being paid to teach that literally ran a school; thats obviously on two different levels here. Seriously get a clue please. Your friend was trolling you. A lot of so called MA’s unfortunately do that to boost their ego or art. We usually call that “Bullshido”.

                      And like I said you’re not understanding here: its all about instilling confidence in a child and a proven way of doing that is through martial arts training. It doesn’t mean you have to fight but it also gives you the confidence not to fight and to talk your way out of things properly and not take things people say to heart or onto yourself. His parents were reactive, not proactive and put partial blame on them not just the kids as kids will be kids.
                      Standing up for yourself doesn’t mean just using your fists.

                      You talk about the diplomatic ways of talking it out; well how do you expect the child to do that when he is too timid to do so? When he actually thinks the easier way out is harming himself?
                      MA training instills the confidence to stand your ground to do so either way; to be strong enough to walk away and not let it effect you mentally, to be strong enough to talk it out and be strong enough to defend yourself.
                      You cannot even debate me on this as i have way more experience on the subject than you do due to just having way more hands on experience with kids who were bullied and training them to overcome it.

                      The end result here was the kid lacked the confidence, education and guidance to stand up for himself and to not let mere words and bullying make him harm himself out of a sense of hopelessness..
                      Obviously the damage he did to himself far now outweighs whatever damage these kids verbally or physically did to him and if he had the instilled confidence to not let that get to him he wouldn’t have resorted to harming himself.

                      lol and I already previously said we were basically done here since you kept failing to read my response correctly so it was basically you who chose to continue this.

      glad Lunamaria and Meyrin are there, same with Lacus and Meer ^^

      Feldt and Soma Peries! though Soma should have been a pilot alongside Allelujah.

      Sumeragi is there, but no Kati?? :

      and yay Relena is there!! disappointed there’s no Noin seeing as she interacts most with the main cast as well as Zechs.

      and there’s only a few males here. i do wonder if they’ll add more via DLC?

        That’s actually all the DLC for navigators. They may add more later, but… Doubtful. I think they will focus more on adding more units instead. Also, yes, you can select any navigator you want.

            True enough. It’s really hard for some people to understand certain things unless it has a direct impact on them. I’m not going to lie though. I can only feel so sympathetic for someone without actually experiencing something for myself.

            I just can’t stand those people that feed you bullshit. You know, like the whole:

            “I understand what you’re going through.”

The only time A.I. comes into play is when you encounter an enemy, which isn’t all the time. While I would enjoy better A.I., having good graphics certainly doesn’t take away anything from the game.

          • Budgiecat

            Well it was more in line with the fact that we’re at stage where graphics are good enough but A.I. hasn’t really improved much in the last 2 gens….

    I’m looking at doing a Kickstarter to reboot Legend of Legaia as a team based, multiplayer only first person shooter that combines the more fantastic elements of the series with a Counterstrike style purchasing system.

    Would anyone here like to go halfsies with me on this?

    • Gigus

      You had me at Legend of legaia then you lost me over the other stuff.

      • McPoo

        What if we included local offline multiplayer as well then? And maybe a few more modes – capture the flag, attack and defend, and so on?

        • Gigus

          I’d be fine with a reboot or a revival legend of legaia rpg

    Apparently I have seen the beginning of the 3rd Pirates of the Caribbean movie. *shrug* I remembered a lot of it, after that nothing.

    In the middle of the 4th one. Don’t like it as much so far.

    • McPoo

      Is the fourth one the one by a different director or something? I remember seeing it at the cinema and thinking it had a really different feeling than the other three. They’ve always been a bit camp and silly, but the fourth one took it to a whole new level.

      Every fight scene looked like something out of the board game Mouse Trap, where someone gets hit and knocks over something that makes something else do something, that makes something else do something (repeat three or four times), until the bad guy gets bonked on the head by a coconut.

      • Elvick

        I don’t know, just finished it and still enjoyed it but there’s definitely something different about it.

        Maybe the characters just didn’t click as much in this one. I think that’s probably it.

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

      He’s been saying this since MGS2, lol. He’s like the Miyazaki of gaming. He always says he will retire from something, but we all know he’ll be back.

      • Gigus

        At least he does something different with his movies. I really wish kojima would trust his team. The only game that was better than or just as good as mgs3 was portable ops.

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

          In some ways, I actually enjoyed Peace Walker more than MGS3. Well, not when I originally tried to play it on PSP anyway, lol. I couldn’t use the controls for shit, so it wasn’t until the HD collection came out that I finally got to enjoy it on PS3 with a controller.

          • Gigus

            I didn’t enjoy peace walker cause it was pretty easy. I had all “S” rank on all my main missions and mostly “S” rank alone on extra ops. The only one that gave me any actual difficulty was the peace walker battle. More annoyance than difficult though.

            Did you really have a hard time with the psp version? I had no issue at all. I guess its because I got used to the controls due to Portable ops. Had so much fun with MGO portable.

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

              I only played Portable Ops for a little bit, but yeah… I couldn’t control anything in the PSP version of Peace Walker for shit. Everything felt far too confusing. It was much more understandable and fluid in the PS3 version.

    • PrinceHeir

      agree, been saying this for years.

      he’s basically putting himself in a position where if he does leave MGS, he won’t have experience to try new things.

      i do hope MGSV is the last MGS game he will do for awhile.

      go back to ZOE3, give us some high speed ultra robot fucking action.

      Snatcher and Policenauts crossover game, Kojima could potentially drum up the VN/ADV genre on the west by putting his name there along with Suda51.

      once he do this, he could go back and remake the first Metal Gear Games from MSX.

      that way, he could incorporate some experience from the other games he’s been doing and make the series fresh and better.

      it’s just a shame, since Kojima can cement his legacy as one of the legends of Japan along with Miyamoto, Sakaguchi, Kamiya, Mikami and the like.

      he’s getting there, but’s he’s not there yet.

      • Gigus

        He won’t let the franchise go. He already tried maybe two times already and he was not satisfied with the results (MPO and Rising).

    • icecoffemix

      He did during PS2 but like many other Jap publisher, HD era really hit them hard and now Konami won’t let go of him lest he pull an Inafune.

      Which I think should be fine for him, but not so for MGS fans…

      • Gigus

        He retired from mgs during the ps2 era? No, I am aware he did make other titles but he was still working on mgs games. Overseeing them still counts. I really doubt Konami has anything to do with Kojima not leaving mgs anymore. There is proof that he just can’t let the franchise go. You can google interviews yourself that prove it.

        • icecoffemix

          He did and gave it to his team but the result was a trainwreck so he got back. He tried again with rising and same thing happened again, so he gave it to platinum, the only developer left he feel worthy in Japan.

          Here’s a summary from someone who read GI’s latest interview :
          Very interesting Kojima interview in the issue. Basically talks about how he got into gaming and how he is stuck being the Metal Gear guy. He claims he does not want to be known as that man, he claims he doesnt have much time left cause he is 50 so he wants to write a list of all he wants to do before he dies and make sure he does it which includes writing a novel and making a movie.

          He claims he likes simple stories, ironically. He said he always tries to make a simple story. He says he wont let series canon hinder him from telling the story he wants so if he has to contradict a few things he will.

          There was a comparison of him and James Cameron with Aliens where that franchise was handed off after Alien and it was successful. Kojima said his situation is more like Terminator where if he left it would become a mess. He claims he has had no success in passing the torch which implies he has tried. There is a lot about Japanese culture and how he doesn’t relate to any Japanese developers anymore except Platinum Games.

          What I found most interesting is his talk about GTA and Konami. Remember that GTA tweet about how amazing an open world it was and how he was jealous. Well he says he is jealous of Rockstar that they are able to pump all their resources into making the game they desire. He says he can’t do that, he still needs to work with Konami and partner on different projects and make sure things are balanced for Konami as a whole.

          He says he just got into Breaking Bad and he is pissed cause he wasnt the one to come up with that story, he wants to tell that kind of story. He says if he pitched a story like that to Konami they would probably say no. He also loved Gravity, loved how simple it was and he says trying to create a game that simple would be hard with Konami. He says that movie really impacted him, making something out of the ordinary a big success and is jealous of it as a creator, says it stirred something in him.

          He talks about how he is close friends with Guillermo Del Toro, says he would like to work with him one day.

          • Gigus

            Those don’t count cause he still supervised those projects. He still acted as producer even for acid. Did you misread my post? I’m talking about him not touching a metal gear project.

            • icecoffemix

              The PSP day acid? Because that clearly show he still can’t let go of MGS today right?

              Doesn’t count because? If you read what I post it’s clear that Konami basically can’t survive without him helming an MGS and no one beside him seems to be able to nail it thus he can’t go. It also hint, nay, blatantly stated that he wanted to do game which tell story like breaking bad or simple one like gravity but Konami won’t let him do it.

              Yes, the end result is him touching only metal gear project but the reason is different than what you suggested.

              • Gigus

                Wait, you’re confusing me already. I thought your argument was that he did retire? I think you missed the whole point of my first post again cause you’re just fueling my statement that he never retired. Be a little realistic here. Not working on a mgs game for 3 or 9 months doesn’t count as giving the series up or a retirement. Thats more like a vacation. If I have to rephrase my first post without it losing its intended statement I will. Again, I’ll believe kojima’s statement about retiring from mgs games if he does something else that isn’t metal gear related. That means he has to step away from it completely regardless whether he likes it or not so he can go on different types of games.

                • icecoffemix

                  I’m saying that he does not make other game beside MGS not entirely out of his own decision but many factors.

                  The article state that he wants to step out, you said you don’t believe him, I said he may be telling the truth but circumstance and Konami didn’t allow him, you said BS because *reason*.

                  It’s easy to say “Kojima needs make other game!”, but in reality it need tens or even hundreds millions of dollar to do that and he can’t just “I’m sick of this, let’s make another game beside MGS Konami!” and be okayed.

                  • Gigus

                    But u still fueled my statement and his reasons are still personal except one. So none of your statements prove he’ll give up the franchise any time soon unless he finds a suitable team to bring success to mgs without him, konami lets him do other stuff, or quit konami. I still dont get why u try to prove me wrong when you keep adding more facts for me to use. If you still disagree with me then there is no point in continuing this debate if there is no resolution. What puzzles me more is what suggestion did I give that says other wise. I’ve stated every thing I needed that proves he won’t leave mg and added the conditions you gave me that explains why. So wht am I missing?

                    • icecoffemix

                      I’m not trying to prove you wrong but gives another perspective beside “he’s lying he’s wrong do as I said!”. I’m not even saying he’s giving up the franchise, it’s all constructed in your head.

                      What fact did you even use? It’s all conjecture. You’re right, there’s no point continuing this “debate” and no, there’s nothing you’re missing, nuh uh.

      I feel like the biggest reason why he hasn’t is because he knows Konami would fuck up Metal Gear, in which case who can blame him?

      • Gigus

        But kojima already f’ed it up anyways by not acknowledging mpo, gave a green light to a card game version of metal gear, and not knowing what to do with rising.

        If he actually gave time and effort to a team he can trust, I think a non-heavily kojima influenced game is possible…….. wait that’s a bit of a contradicting statement lol.

        • PrinceHeir

          lol what?

          Metal Gear AC!D is amazing, godly soundtrack and actually a game where Kojima has little involvement, yet it still manages to put on a good story that isn’t convoluted or hard to track off.

          even Portable Ops is 10x better than Peace Walker’s story.

          Gene is an amazing villain and one of the best in the franchise. i can’t believe he’s not the one leading XOF since he’s basically The Boss’s successor.

      is this the 3rd time he’s said that he’ll leave? honestly though. after MGS V. what the hell is there to do? the only thing left (besides MG 1 and 2 remakes) is a game about The Boss & the Cobra Unit (which should be in the same style as PW & PO). after that, what else could he possibly do with the series?

      • Gigus

        Hand the franchise over to a new group of game developers that share his passion. That’s the only thing he can do after the things you listed that I have been saying since mgs4. He could also make my dream come true by making a liquid snake game.

      • icecoffemix

        I think it cost the same in Japan so maybe Konami NA dick move?

    • icecoffemix

    Resident Evil Revelations is alright, isn’t it?

    Been playing on the 3DS and even without a second circle pad it’s still really playable, and I’m quite enjoying it.

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

      Yeah, I’d rate it “alright”, I suppose. It didn’t blow me away, but it was a Resident Evil game that didn’t make me want to hurl my TV out a window because of how shitty it was. Then again, I played it on PS3 and PC with some character mods (see: CV Claire, RE4 Leon with jacket, etc.).

      • McPoo

        I was considering the console version because of the better controls, but ended up getting it on 3DS while it was on sale on the e-shop. It’s quite a nice looking game too, particularly in 3D.

        I prefer it to 6, but probably not as much as 5. Although I only really like 5 because it’s a fun co-op game.

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

          Yeah, I wasn’t too crazy about campaign in this game. I did invest a bit of time into co-op though for sure.

    • PrinceHeir

      i just bought the PS3 version a week ago or two.

      need to get around playing it!!

      so far from the trailers, i do not like the character designs of Jill and the cast.

      it seems they got downgraded from the amazing REmake and RE4.

      even RE6 has better character designs, but the game is much newer compared to revelations.

    • $18114340

      I haven’t seriously played a Resident Evil title since 4, and I only played a little bit of 5. Both games seemed to play perfectly fine with one analog stick (not the least of which because 4 was designed with the GC controller in mind). Was going to pick up the 3DS version of Revelations at some point, but was really interested in how it controlled. Can you go into more detail please?

      • McPoo

        Of course!

        The circle pad is general movement when not aiming, and if you hold L then you can strafe instead. Aiming is done by holding R, which puts you in first person mode. You’re stationary for this unless you hold L, which locks where you’re aiming as the circle pad then gets used for strafing. It sounds a bit confusing but it doesn’t take long to get used to it.

        There’s a bunch of other control method too, including one where the circle pad is for strafing by default, and you hold B if you want to turn, and you can aim entirely by gyroscope too if you’d prefer. It works really well, although I don’t use it as it throws off the 3D. It’s good though because it frees up the circle pad for strafing while you shoot.

        Any other questions, ask away :)

      It’s always a mental health issue. We need to address that, not throw the blame all around and avoid the issue.

        To be honest, he’s only 13 years old… I don’t think anybody at that age really knows what they’re doing or understands the consequences of such actions. I’m not defending him here, but it’s a bit of a stretch to say he knew what he was doing just because her memory was bad, apparently.

      as i said in the other post, he should have added tons of VR Missions or side ops from Peace Walker?

      is it really hard to make up some rules like rescue this soldier without alerting anyone, or don’t use any weapons aside from tranq or something?

      for me i’m disappointed seeing as this game is obviously a cash in to get an early investment as quickly as possible.

      they already said Phantom Pain will be a long time(might be from summer-fall 2015) so i don’t know why they’re releasing this too early tbh.

      oh well will see though.

    basically Final Fantasy X HD version everything including menu and subtitles are english yet the voices are in Japanese.

    wtf O__O

    according to the description, the game is the Japanese version.

    i’ve seen on youtube FFX-2 HD in english subtitles, but not the menu.

    i freaking hope the US has the option as well!!

    • new_tradition

      There was a vid posted of the 30 minute drama with English subs, and the user explained they somehow hacked into the game, and the English subs were actually present in the Japanese game disc (possibly DL version too?). So isn’t accessible through regular play, but technically in there, I guess?

      I read the Asian version will have English subs, so maybe the English subs in the Japanese version was in preparation for that?

      As for locking it in the first place, I suppose they wanted to keep people from importing the game. It did well in Japan and probably do well elsewhere, so I guess they wanna keep sales in the rest of the regions.

      As to whether the NA version has the Japanese audio buried in there, I doubt it. As far as I know, there’s no English VA in the Japanese and Asian versions, so vice versa in unlikely.

    “Mamoru Samuragoch* has been called “Japan’s Beethoven.” Even as he went deaf, Samuragoch continued to compose scores for video games like Resident Evil and Onimusha. This week, he revealed that he used a ghost composer.

    According to Japanese media, though, a man named Takashi Niigaki issued a statement on Wednesday claiming to be the “ghost” composer and to have worked for Samuragochi for 18 years.”

    what does everyone think of this? also didn’t know he was Japan’s Beethoven that’s pretty high standard stuff!

    With all the brouhaha surrounding MGSV, I’m curious to know how many of guys have completely convinced yourselves not to buy MGSV:GZ?

    • Elvick

      I was already leaning towards ‘no’, now I’m definitely not getting it.

      • Gigus

        Noted. I’ll just wait for GZ to be included with The Phantom Pain. If not, I’ll wait for a price drop.

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

      My pre-order is still placed, mainly because I don’t want to go into The Phantom Pain without experiencing the prologue to it. Imagine trying to enjoy a book, but having the first chapter removed (or the prologue for that matter, lol). Besides, I’ve paid $80+ to import hybrid discs which have a demo of a game with them usually (see: .hack//Versus) that only lasts a few hours at most, if you platinum it.

      Plus, I need something to hold me off until late March anyway since Project Diva F 2nd got pushed back a little.

          • Gigus

            Ah, noted. Anyways like I mentioned to elvick, I’m just gonna wait till phantom pain comes out.

    • MrFinalgamer

      i’ll probably get it before Phantom Pain is out. it’ll most likely be like playing MGS2 and skipping the tanker mission…mind fuck

    • GhostNomad

      I’m in no hurry to get it, that much is for sure. I’ll wait until a good sale or until some news come out on the actual game. If a bundle gets announced, I’ll likely get that. Otherwise, I can wait until a couple of weeks before PP comes out to play GZ. I’d rather not tease myself with a potential cliffhanger and then have to wait a year for the rest of the story. And I’m sure as hell not gonna pay $40 for a prologue.

    Random, but I finally decided to take a break from player matches last night and hopped on ranked, and stayed on until I reached Ensign. Apparently it takes less points to reach bronze this time around. Then again… I also don’t remember there being so many ranks in bronze last time either and I’ve already seen up to five, then I believe it goes to silver (which is probably Colonel, I imagine).

    Still, I’ll keep going and see how high I get this time. I could never reach beyond the silver ranks in EXVS since people were very picky about who they played and at this point, you usually only found people playing top tier units anyway. In any case, I’m glad I didn’t give up on TIII, despite the nerfs, like I felt like doing during the first week.

    It’s the only suit I really feel comfortable with and after enjoying over 10,000 matches in EXVS, I look forward to enjoying even more this time around~

    Maybe there is a possibility of additional navigators and variations for them as DLC later on after all. Well, this would imply that there is something beyond the on-disc DLC anyway. Another leaked picture came out recently showing variations of pilots which isn’t on the disc that we can look forward to.

        I had to ask my friend since I’m only familiar with ELS due to Super Robot Wars. Here’s what he said:

        “he became a bridge between the aliens (aka ELS) and human beings, making diff races communicate-able . and because he went to saturn which is ELS’ home base and i guess to show appreciation to aliens and to reflect “understanding” theme of 00 series so he became that form”

    Found a nice bargain on a new stick I can use for Gundam Extreme VS Full Boost. I was just going to buy a new set of buttons and a balltop for my current stick, but I figured… I’ve already been using this one for 4+ years now. Maybe it’s time I finally upgraded.

    So, I found a slightly used (only a few times for testing purposes) Hori Real Arcade Pro V3 SA for $80 and it ships from a state right next to mine. How great is that? Granted, it released back in 2010, but it’s still a step up from my Hori Real Arcade Pro 3-SA and overall, it’s actually still a pretty good stick. Normally, these still go for at least $150, but I managed to find one in very good condition for $80.

    If I would have went the alternate route and just slapped “duct tape” on my current one, it would have cost me a good $40-50 for new buttons and a balltop. That’s not even taking into consideration of replacing the gate while I’m at it since that’s been wearing down too (it’s a square gate, by the way).

    So yeah, just paying a little more for a whole new stick altogether just seemed like a better option. I could have dished out a good $250 or so for a much more recent stick, but I’m not going pro or anything like that, so something like this will be just fine for someone like me. On that note, say goodbye to my current baby.

    Looks like this will be our last weekend together. It’s actually just a standard Hori Real Arcade Pro 3, but I always address it as the Hori Real Arcade Pro 3-SA version since I swapped the original Hori buttons and balltop for Sanwa parts like the SA model since paying an extra $50 for it is silly when you can just modify it yourself :3

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

      And this is what I’ll be getting in a few days (just a reference picture though, I’ll be taking pictures of it when it arrives too just because). I really love the compartment it has in the back though that holds the USB cable inside. That’s awesome. I have to wrap my cable around my current stick, lol.

        If I were to upgrade again though, I’d definitely go with the Hori Real Arcade Pro Premium VLX model since it’s just soooooooooooo sweet. This picture in particular is nice because you can see a comparison of how much bigger it is when putting it side by side against, the HRAP3-SA, what I’m currently using, lol.

    Possibly some new (and not-so new) info on The Order: 1886

    http://www.igameresponsibly.com/2014/02/05/ready-dawn-talks-sophisticated-cover-system-order-1886/

    Key things to take away, as listed in the article itself:

    -Single player, no co-op. Squad commands may be possible, but will reveal at later date.

    -This war rages for hundreds of years. Future titles could jump around the timeline.

    -Linear world.

    -Main enemies are the Half Breed. Human/Werewolf hybrids.

    -Triangle conflict between Half Breeds, commoners, and Aristocrats?

    -Physics and material destruction lead to dynamic cover system. Shooting metal can reveal new ways to advance through environments. Shooting clothing on a line will result in realistic particles flying through the area. All create a believable world.

    -When asked about which type of gamers this title will attract, they say three things distinguish the Order. Immersion. Varied gameplay. They hate cutscene-action-cutscene gameplay.

    -The world and everything that happens in it play a major role. And finally, combat system. Combining science and fantasy, but always grounded in what was happening at the time with incredible inventors and inventions.

    -Different guns for different situations, they didn’t want to allow the gamer access to all the weapons at once.

    -When asked about melee, they seem to talk about cinematic fighting, a new approach, new twist. Studied many fight sequences to replicate power and impact. Object interaction plays a role in fighting.

    -1080p/30fps. Not aiming for 60fps, given focus on effects

        I only hope that they’re big enough to do both. ): Sly 5 has to happen. If it doesn’t, rage. RAGE. (and confusion, since the IP is getting a movie ffs, why not wrap up the story too?…)

        Anyhoo, shame that the character model of Amy looks so lame.

    • McPoo

      I don’t get the hate for the new designs I’ve seen across the net. It’s not like the original designs were all that cool to begin with, in my opinion.

      They look more like adventurers/plunderers now, which is a bit cooler. The game actually looked like it could possibly be decent too, which would be a shock. I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed a Sonic game.

      • Elvick

        I don’t mind the art, but the actual models don’t look a good as the art. And in the game in particular look goofy.

          it seems like an experiment Gundam to me.

          also i remember now!!

          Ashley Wood in Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops!

          he was the main artist there, that’s why the characters didn’t have facial expressions and was more stylized.

          Peace Walker however was done by Yoji Shinkawa, but followed the style of Ashley Wood who was also a guest artist in Peace Walker.

Levi is also suited up for the business, too. It’s gonna be a day for that guy to remember. Erwin and Pixis at the end, man. So hype!

      • GhostNomad

        The way she flipped out when she was talking with Historia makes me feel that there’s some really weird shit going on with her. I NEED THIS INFO!

        And yeah, I didn’t realize that was Armin until this chapter. Makes last chapter’s ending all the weirder O.o

        As usual, the ending was a tease. JUST WHEN IT WAS GETTING GOOD! Suppose that’s one way to keep readers interested but dayum!

        Also, is it just me or did the art seem a little different in this chapter, in a good way? >.>

        • bloodiOS

          Well, after all this time, you would expect the art to have improved a bit. ;)

          • GhostNomad

            Naturally, and maybe it was just my imagination but it seemed to have slightly improved over 53. Maybe they put more focus on more interesting chapters :P

  • McPoo

    Finished DmC the other day, that’s a fine game.

    I really liked DMC1 and 3, but 4 was such a downwards turn that I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. I think it was partly because what was once ‘cool’, now seemed lame, and partly because I don’t enjoy the genre as much as I used to.

    That said, DmC’s characters, settings and story really revived the series for me. I loved the new Dante, the supporting characters and bosses were really good, and the level design was excellent.

    I’m glad Ninja Theory took the helm, and I’d welcome another game done by them.

    • Gigus

      *high five* I’m playing on hard mode so thanks for the non spoiler

      • McPoo

        No worries, how far in are you?

        • Gigus

          Not very far. Just met his brother and awaken a few weapons such as the scythe and the hammer. I like it but its like a not really bad, yet not really good roller coster ride.

          The gameplay is the only thing thats keeping me interested so far (and the near dirt cheap price tag). Unfortunately, I haven’t been playing due to some free lance work I received recently.

          • McPoo

            Lol I was the opposite, the gameplay never grabbed me massively (although it’s nothing against the game itself, more the genre than anything), but the characters and settings were so good that I had to keep playing.

            I’m not one that really enjoys boss fights either, but this game has some of the most entertaining boss fights I’ve played in ages :)

            • Gigus

              Really? Thats interesting XD. I would’ve been so sold on the story if one thing didn’t turn me off, and it was Dante finally meeting his twin brother. There was no emotion at all from dante XD. He didn’t even give off some kind of snarky attitude or question why they look a like. He only cared right after when he went into limbo in his old home.

  • McPoo

    I’ve seen a copy of MGS 3D in my local GAME for about £12 I think – is this version really as bad as it’s made out to be?

    I’m looking for a relatively cheap game as I want something to fill the cartridge slot now I’ve sold Fire Emblem, and I’ve got a long train ride coming up for work soon so fancy something to play that isn’t Resident Evil, so any other game suggestions are welcome (no JRPG’s though please).

    • $18114340

      The most I’ve heard in criticism of MGS3D is that the frame rate is really low in parts — I’m not sure if that would really bother me given that both Portable Ops and the original MGS3 didn’t have really great, stable frame rates anyway and they were both playable. Portable Ops in particular doesn’t really stand the test of time but I still like to play it every now and then, so I don’t think a port of MGS3 could possibly be worse, but I may be wrong.

      But that wasn’t a demo… That’s all Ground Zeroes had to offer.

      EDIT: We’ll see what it truly has to offer though, come next month. I don’t really like them falling back on replay value as a means of making it a good experience though. “Oh, don’t worry about the playtime, just play it over and over again, and you’ll have fun with it!”

      A lot of time, I just want to play through the game once, then move onto other games I haven’t experienced rather than doing the same old thing over and over again.
