    I got a Titanfall beta key. >_>

    Who else got one? <_<

    • Stacy Connor

      Seemed to get one for the Xbone. Bigger issue is that I don’t actually own one, so kind of hard to make use of it. Not sure what went wrong with applying for a beta key, but my friend is making use of the key, so it’s not a complete loss.

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

        >but my friend is making use of the key, so it’s not a complete loss.

        Damn. I was going to suggest that you could post about it on a forum and see if you could get someone to trade you a PC beta key for it.

        • Stacy Connor

          Seems like more effort that I feel like giving, and they seemed to want to play it. So all is well, really.

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

    So yeah, this is pretty much me today :|

    • DarthBrian

      You’re being interviewed on TV?

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

        Noooo… You guys, it’s a meme that started from an interview between lovers in the snow, lol.

        http://news.merumo.ne.jp/article/genre/1631616

        I think this interview pretty much has him saying something like:

        “Lover? Lovers should die.”

        Lol

        • DarthBrian

          Well, now I’m sad. :(

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

            I’m not fond of the whole “love” concept as it is, so having a whole “holiday” dedicated to it is a bad combination for me… Especially when people are greeting me with “Happy Valentine’s Day” and talking about their partner, and I’m sitting here thinking to myself, “Great… Good for you. Now tell me what the hell I’M supposed to be happy for.” :p

            • DarthBrian

              I know that feel, bro.

            • karmacoma

              Not fond of love as a concept? That’s sad. Love is GREAT. Not having love is really shitty though. I don’t have love in my life right now, and yeah, it sucks.

              /iknowthatfeelbro.jpg

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

                Well, I was fond of it as a teenager. You know, the whole puppy love thing. The end result wasn’t too fun though and as I grew older, I just became more bitter towards the whole thing in general, really. It often leaves me asking myself, “Why do I need it? What does love do for me or anybody else for that matter?”

                I mean, really, it just feels like the idea of love itself consists of two people tricking each other into believing there’s something more to life than there actually is to make themselves feel better about each other. Plus, I’m a logical person and you can’t logically explain “love”, so that in itself bothers me. How can I trust something that can’t be explained through thought and reason?

                I often hear about people throwing logic into the wind and simply allowing their emotions dictate their choices during a relationship, and I just can’t see anything stable about that at all. It’s insane is what it is. A part of me envies people that can act so carelessly, but another part of me is glad I’m not like that at all.

                • erapago

                  Eh, don’t worry about it. You’ll get over the dismissive attitude about affection and human emotion when you find the right person.

                • LordKaiser

                  Don’t worry about it. People are born with with syndromes and conditions that won’t let them have strong feelings. (If you have 1 that is)

                  Well but if you said that you had the feelings when younger… hummmm. Something must had happened to you?

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

                    Yeah, just had some shitty luck with girls as a teenager, that’s all. I don’t really view emotions the same way since all of the bullshit. Who knows, things might actually change at some point in the future, but I’d rather just stick to playing video games and keeping my freedom than go through all the drama again.

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

                    Not sure why my reply didn’t go through earlier, but I’ll just sum up what I said before. Basically, some girls fucked me up mentally and emotionally when I was a teenager and I haven’t felt the same towards emotions ever since.

                    I’d rather just stick to what works right now and play video games, and keep my freedom, instead of deal with the drama of a relationship at this point in my life.

                    • LordKaiser

                      Then you’re perfectly normal. I’m in a similar position more or less. I also can’t take care of myself since I need a job so I don’t have the will to date as I feel that I’m wasting time and energy. I’m focused on finding a job and save money. I’m sure that if I had a job I would not be broke because I know how to manage money. I’m not like many of my friends that rushed to live alone after they got a part-time job so they could bring women to their beds.

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

                      There’s that too. I’ve got so much going on in my life right now (personal stuff mostly), it would be irresponsible of me to bring someone else into that. Plus, I’m also not financially prepared at the moment either. I mean, I guess I could find someone that has a job and such as well so they can take care of themselves and we just pool our money together to take care of each other, but I’d rather be able to support my partner as well.

              • http://zefhar.deviantart.com Zefhar

                Yeah, love feels good man. I haz.

            • LordKaiser

              Valentine ruined many people chances by making people rush what should not be rushed.

              I saw so many guys wasting money on chocolate, teddy bears and flowers on girls that where not their girlfriends just to confess and be rejected right away.

              I dunno how it works in JP but I heard that it’s the girls who gifts and their chocolates are hand made.

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

                Yeah, that would be White Day. It takes place a month after Valentine’s Day. The girls give chocolates to boys instead. It’s usually home made chocolates though, yes.

                This is generally because it shows more effort and sincerity as opposed to simply buying something from a store as an offering.

    • Kobracon

      ….lotta rain over there?

    • DarkLegacy

      I’m guessing that is snow?

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

        Yes.

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

        Well, I wouldn’t go THAT far, lol.

  • KingNigma

    Is it safe to say that I’m enjoying the hell outta DmC even though I’ve never played a Devil May Cry game before?

    • http://zefhar.deviantart.com Zefhar

      Wait, you said enjoying “the hell” outta DmC?

      Sounds accurate.

      • KingNigma

        That unintended pun. But yeah I’m finding the gameplay really fun.

    • Budgiecat

      I dunno…

      How low are your standards?

      • KingNigma

        Well I haven’t really played action games like this other than Bayonetta and God of War and I’m finding it easier to get into than those games. I only played a little bit of DMC 3 and 4 but that was so long ago.

        • Budgiecat

          Get Berserk PS2

        • PrinceHeir

          in addition to Berserk, this is all the action games you need

          Metal Gear Rising,Ninja Gaiden,Bayonetta,Devil May Cry,

          Chaos Legion,Castlevania,Legacy of Kain,Bloodrayne,

          Killer is Dead,Killer 7,No More Heroes,

          Onechanbara,Senran Kagura,Lollipop Chainsaw,Bullet Witch,

          Warriors Orochi,Dynasty Warriors,Samurai Warriors,Sengoku Basara,

          One Piece Pirate Warriors,Bleach Soul Resurreccion,Kamen Rider Battle Ride Wars,

          Lords of Shadow,God of War,

          • KingNigma

            What a list. I also forgot about playing Viewtiful Joe 1 and 2. Would that be a worthy addition?

            • PrinceHeir

              well most of the list is in 3D, but i would definitely recommend Viewtiful Joe as well.

              i would put the Vanillaware 2D Games as well

              Muramasa,Odin Sphere,GrimGrimoire.

    • karmacoma

      I’ve played all of the previous games and I really enjoy the new DmC. It may not be as deep as 3&4 or as pretty as 4, but the gameplay is really fast, really smooth, and really satisfying.

      I was wary of it when I saw the first trailers, but yeah, I enjoyed my time with it.

      • KingNigma

        Some of the platforming is kinda awkward but I’m having fun with the combat especially of course though I’m spending a lot of time in training. Damn enemies keep dying in the middle of my combos.

    • McPoo

      It’s better than 1, 2 and 4 tbh.

  • http://zefhar.deviantart.com Zefhar
    • DarthBrian

      Exciting.
      Might want to use the share links provided instead.

    • bloodiOS

      Very nice, thanks for sharing. I re-uploaded it so others can see:

  • Gariya

    Why is NISA so based?

  • LordKaiser

    Welcome to the Year of RPGs. This is the last chance they will have to turn things around.

    So far I’m enjoying Bravely Default and I’m trying to find random people with street passes at the mall XD. This game is great but it feels that it would be better on consoles since Agnès CG version looks prettier than her chibi form. Also the doors and hallways that only serves as background make the game feel like content was cut out or something.

    I found the retention brackets for my CPU cooler so soon I could scroll 1k messages here on my PC and stop using the PS3 browser thet freezes all my PS3 over.

    Another thing I must add is that I feel like the existence of iOS is ruining my gaming experience entirely because:

    1- Devs like SE are developing more for it and cutting dev times on Vita, 3DS and consoles. (SE remaking FFV and FFVI solely for iOs with horrible sprites)

    2- I hate 100% touch controls

    3- I hate fees and I wont play another monthly fee to put another internet service on a smartphone.

    • new_tradition

      I don’t hate mobile games themselves, but I do not like those online-only games, even if they’re “free”. Seems to defeat the purpose of playing a game on your phone. Those whole point of gaming on your phone is to kill time in quick bursts, right?

    • karmacoma

      Bravely Default is great. Heh, although it made me wish we had an HD game designed by Yoshida then I remembered “hey, he did the designs for FFXIV!”

      So I bought FFXIV and I’ve been playing that the past few days, ignoring Default. :p
      I’m ashamed it took me this long to play it, but I’m loving my time with it. Also, it seems more urgent since I have 30 free days before I have to pay for it, whereas Default’ll be there forever.

      Thanks for the spoiler with no warning T____T

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

        Hory sheet. I don’t even watch KLK and even I think this was terrible to post. Well, at least now I know why all of my friends were screaming about the latest episode.

        Still… Gariya is going to be torn into by a pack of wild wolves over this one, lol.

    • KingNigma
  • Wolf Star

    Danganrompa 2 will be amazing!! :D I’m soo hyped for that :)

    • Gariya

      A lot of gameplay improvements in the sequel apparently.

      As in ZOE2/inFAMOUS 2/AssCreed 2/MGS2/Kingdom Hearts II level of improvements.

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

        Quit breaking the Internet, dammit.

        • DarkLegacy

          He has a lot of – on his comment

      • Wolf Star

        Oh sweet!! Can’t wait ^__^ those type of games with that level of epicness should be amazing. Can’t wait to play Danganrompa 2 to see what they changed.

    • DarkLegacy

      I’m hyped for it too :3

      • Wolf Star

        Yaaay x3 after you play the 1st game. Look up trailers for the 2nd game. It’s even more amazing :3

        • DarkLegacy

          Will do when I have time ^__^

          • Wolf Star

            Awesome!! :D

          • Wolf Star

            Awesome!! :D

            • DarkLegacy

              Ikr!! :D

              • Wolf Star

                Yeah!!! :D

  • Elvick

    Beat The Last of Us: Left Behind. Pretty dope. Ended up switching to easy like a newb, because I didn’t want to spend 50 minutes on one area. Still had issues later on on easy too. >_>;

  • DesmaX

    And Xseed just had to ruin my weekend
    https://www.facebook.com/XSEEDGames/posts/10151963573718354?comment_id=29748674&offset=0&total_comments=2

    … Oh well, guess stuff tend to not go as planned.

    • karmacoma

      “Summer” is better than “it’s not happening,” or “no news to announce.”

      • DesmaX

        But it was already announced for Winter 2014 before.

        It’s cool to have a word from the publisher… but damn.

    • Anime10121

      So I’m guessing that means TitS2 is being delayed until next year :(

      WHY OH WHY DO YOU NOT SUPPORT GOOD JRPG’S AMURICUH :(

      The Legend of Heroes games deserve better :(

      • DesmaX

        I don’t think that’s stopping Calpe Fulgur translation. Sounds more like problems with the game code

        • Anime10121

          Hope not, but then again, I almost NEED for it to get delayed, I have SO many games already that need beating, and Trails is kinda long :P So it might benefit me if it got released later!

  • DesmaX

    Anyway, anyone brough Metal Slug 3 on Steam?

    The game unlocked today, so if anyone wants to play co-op, gimme a call

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Still chugging away at Bravely Default. Nearly done with the damn town and still haven’t reached chapter 3. :/

    • Pyrofrost

      I’m taking my time with it as well, doing a good bit of grinding too. I’m on my way to get the water summon in the story.

      Here is my FC if you want to add me:
      4656-6491-7935

      If you send me an be sure to let me know and leave your FC in reply as well. Thank you in advance!
      (the invitation is open to all my fellow Gematsu mates) ^_^

      • LordKaiser

        When I get my WiFi Access Point I will add every single being that lives.

        • Pyrofrost

          I will be happy to have you man, I keep my shared attack updated, so you will have that to use if you like.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        I am pretty overleveled and overequipped. I am mainly just trying to get the town done before I move on with the rest of the game. I got the water summon already. And the wind summon. And the valkyrie and red mage. I just have to beat the main bosses and save Olivia. 1676-3682-1124 is my friend code. Though I don’t usually use friend summons (or ablink (feels cheat-y)), and my current character being sent is a weak one so… eh.

        • Pyrofrost

          Yeah, I’m grinding jobs and working on finishing the town here as well.

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

            Did you see my edit? It has my friend code. Also get Growth Egg. You need a lot, and I mean a lot of money to get it.

            • Pyrofrost

              Aye, just caught it. I will send an add your way.

              I have the growth egg open in my shop as well, but I haven’t bought one yet. I’m still a little short on cash. :p

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

                I am very short like 400k short.

                • Pyrofrost

                  I’m at about 380k total. I had to discover a better way to grind since the Chompers in the full release are shit, unfortunately.

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

                    Myeh I gave up grinding seriously.

  • Revorse

    Anyone else playing Lighting Returns?
    I have to say I like it. I really like it actually. But I feel like if certain aspects of the XIII series were combined all together in the first place, it could have been a FF that people love instead of loved to hate. I am disliking how some random enemies are strong as shit. It’s a bit random when it comes to difficulty.
    Goddamn ChocoboEater in that side mission is just ridiculous. I can’t even dent the mother fucka. But I want Odin’s blades so bad.

    • karmacoma

      I really want to play it. Unlike 75% of the internet, I really liked XIII and XIII-2, despite XIII’s linearity or XIII-2’s lack of playable characters.

      But it came out just days after Bravely Default, and I’d been waiting on that for a couple of years so I went and bought the CE of that instead.

    • Tac-Mex

      I am going to get it when it’s cheap.

      • Revorse

        Fortunately, or unfortunately it’s probably going to get cheap pretty quick. I don’t think the game pushed big number in Japan and I’m not sure if it’ll do that here either. I say within 6 months or so it’ll be in the 30-40 buck range.

        • Tac-Mex

          Yes. also according to reviews it has a mediocre plot.

    • Anime10121

      It really is good so far! I really liked Snow’s main story quest, and the battle system aint bad either:P So now I cant wait to reach Caius and Yuel :D

      I was no fan of the original XIII (didnt “hate” it, just was kind of indifferent about it) loved the second game, and I’m really liking this one so far! Hope it continues to be just as strong, as the game continues on…

      • Revorse

        I like how vast the world is. It really feels alive. Although my complaint for that is I wish it was filled with NPC I cared about.

    • futuristic_imagination

      I’m playing it. I’m on day 3 with 6 days left. I dunno if that a good thing (not using a guide). Time management system is a pain and I kind of hate how difficulty spikes at times, but I like the challenge.

      I personally I like XIII and XIII-2. But I always liked the Final Fantasy series, that’s the reason why I started gaming in the first place.

      • Revorse

        Your name? It’s a song right?
        Yeah, that time thing is really annoying. Only for the fact that time moves quick as shit. Maybe if we something like 10 real world seconds is a minute in game it might be a bit better.
        Those difficulty spike are just crazy. I hate em.

        • futuristic_imagination

          Yeah it is. The name came from School Food Punishment. Fave song from Eden of the East. Sad that they broke up though.

          The time management thing I usually take my time try to figure things out. Then load my save to where I’m still at the beginning of that day. Then blaze through it. This process is slow but it gets the job done.

          The only thing that I hate about the difficulty spike is, you see a monster that you defeated in previous games and think its easy, only to get yourself killed.

    • new_tradition

      I’m only on Day 4, but it’s pretty fun. I have found some quests to be a little vague and I’ve looked up for help more than once already online (my guidebook still isn’t here >.>)

      I found myself sticking to the standard Commando/Ravager/Sentinel set-up thus far, but I’m curious if people have tried to make Saboteur schemata

      Also, I’ve been in Luxerion the whole time >3>

      • Revorse

        I found Saboteuring pretty useless for a long time. The debuffs just don’t last long enough. And I don’t see the effects working as strong for me as they do for enemies. debuffs and buffs. But I did find this weapon that further increases damage on enemies inflicted with either Deshell or Deprotect and I can see the effects.

        • new_tradition

          I read someone’s suggestion to just put debuffs on the sentinel-esque schemata, so depending on the enemy, there might be come rearrangements in schemata order, but I think it’s not a bad idea.

      • futuristic_imagination

        Day four! Did you at least beat the Shadow Hunter boss in Luxerion? I’m in day 3 about to start the Yusnaan main quest. (I’m playing this game without a guide too)

        My set up is still the Nocturne costume (all round), Sigfried costume (com) and Providence (all round/ Rav). But I need to spend more time making more efficient setup. Took me about 4 minutes to beat the Shadow Hunter. :(

        From that last statement, I suggest you should start doing quests in the other areas or at least some at Yusnaan.

        • new_tradition

          Yeah, I got that done by the end of Day 2, lol.

          I met you-know-who at the Cathedral at the end of Day 3, and I think I can deal with Yusnaan’s boss by the end of Day 4.

          I really didn’t want to to use Cloud’s schemata since I heard how OPed it was, but I caved. It makes fights a lot easier :(

          Etro’s Knight and Utsusemi are my current other two, but I haven’t really been trying to use other ones; there’s probably better set ups I’m not aware of >_>

          • futuristic_imagination

            nice! was getting kind worried for you.

            I haven’t really focused on customizing which I should of. Some monsters are taking awhile to kill, but having Thundara spell made it a little easier. I might cave in and look online for some efficient customizations.

  • karmacoma

    This is kind of a random question, but.. I really want to delete my google plus account. If I do so, will I still be able to use youtube? I mean, I know you can watch videos without an account, but there are some videos that have the age restriction, and you need to log in. Apparently deleting your plus account doesn’t delete your entire google account, but since youtube went g+ a few months back, I’m not sure how deleting plus affects youtube.

    • LordKaiser

      No you have to make a new account for that purpose. Google wanted to unify everything on a single account for their own convenience. They ruined youtube a lot lately and it’s content makers are searching for alternatives to move away from youtube.

      • karmacoma

        Damn, I was afraid of that. Yeah, I’d totally abandon google if there was a good youtube alternative. Things like vimeo and metacafe exist, but they just don’t have the massive amount of content youtube does.

        Honestly, I’d really like vimeo to take off, particularly with game publishers and movie studios. The quality of their videos is so much higher than what google offers on youtube, but there’s like, no support.

        • LordKaiser

          Daily Motion have a few youtubers that are in both places at the same time.

          Classic Game Room and Tech USA are there but they need Angry Joe, AVGN , etc etc.

  • Tac-Mex

    How much do you think PS4 is going to sell in Japan? I think it is going to sell like 400-500k first day

    .

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

      That’s crazy optimistic.

      • Tac-Mex

        why?

        • karmacoma

          Well, there aren’t games for it, for one. The game most enticing for a Japanese audience, Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin! is also available on PS3.

          300K is more likely. I could be wrong, and it might sell the numbers you’re predicting. But you have to remember that Japan took some time to warm up to the PS3. They’re pretty content playing portable games, and the Vita and 3DS have a pretty great library.

          • Budgiecat

            Is this on top of the sold out preorders?

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

          Maybe because Japan is a mobile and handheld centric country? Expecting home consoles to sell well in Japan is like expecting digital releases to stop in North America (Japan hates digital releases of games and North America seems to love them, by the way).

    • bloodiOS

      250K! Releasing the console for the mobage nation with few to no Japanese title certainly isn’t really looking very hot.

  • Tac-Mex

    I am downloading Last of Us dlc, i am ready for some multiculturalism and racial diversity.

    • Budgiecat

      eh? Dont know where you pulled all that from but ……okay….

  • Tac-Mex

    Titanfall is 792p :/, i bet that PS4 can run it at 1080p, EA did wrong by doing it exclusive to Microsoft.

    • Elvick

      I don’t know why the developers decided to sign with EA. The fact they made that exclusive deal without the developer’s knowledge is just hilariously ridiculous.

      • Tac-Mex

        Yeah, that franchise could have been more popular and profitable if it was released for PS4. EA loss.

        • Spectacularity

          Such a shame.

      Awesome. Do you think its OK to skip vc1 and 2 to play 3

      • Kattaro

        I am also playing first part but I have stopped at some point and I haven’t played since then.Third part takes place at the same time as first one so I don’t think it’s really necessary to know first part. I played about 2 hours of second game but I couldn’t stand english voices so I stopped and never touched this game again.
        So I think you can play this game and have fun without knowing previous games :D

    • Seasqwaa

      The new movie comes out this month, right? I really can’t wait! I hope it’s awesome!

          That’s modern console gaming for you.
          Pretty annoying.

          I just need to remember if I’m playing a game with friends, to turn on the console and start the game well in advance to make sure make sure it’s done all it’s updates, and frippery.

          It’s pretty frustrating when you’re sitting there around with friends just waiting.

    • Wolf Star

      Awesome dude ^__^ I don’t have one either but Xbox One is good too (I think?) I got ps4 :P hehe

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      I don’t have either PS4 or XBO yet… but I am getting PS4 next month. I am not a Xbox fan, but congratulations anyways.

    • DarkLegacy

      Congrats. Have fun ;)

    • karmacoma

      Awesome. I am leaning towards the PS4, but I’d love a One. I’m platform agnostic, and so far, the One has more enticing exclusives at present, and in the near future (for me anyway).

      But my love of Japanese games makes the PS4 a bigger priority.

    • AdamBoy64

      Congratulations man. That’s pretty cool!
      Pretty fantastic surprise. Hope you enjoy it heaps.

      I don’t have an X1, but for my next next-gen console, I’ll be keeping an eye out for what games come out for PS4 and X1, and I’ll decide based on what games are out. It’s definitely not a one-horse race.

      My favourite game of last-gen was on the 360, even though I preferred the PS3 more in general.

    I’ve just completed the first chapter of Danganronpa, really cool game. The style used in the execution’s cinematic is awesome.
    I’m a bit sad to know that most of those guys and girls will die soon (since I already like some of them) but hey, that’s what’s the game about haha.

    Wasn’t there an extra “relaxing” mode where people didn’t die to be unlocked? Or was it in the 2nd game?

    Well all of that being said, I still think that I in the same VN-game genre, I like Corpse Party more, but that doesn’t take anything from SDR’s greatness.

    would you want a Dark Souls game style in side scroll or isometric view??

    http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/19eqwx7e8hm62jpg/ku-xlarge.jpg

    • bloodiOS

      An isometric Soul game would probably fit the Vita. Side-scrolling, however, sounds rather dumb though.

      • PrinceHeir

        Castlevania :P

        • bloodiOS

          Yeah, doesn’t mean it will translate well for Soul games though.

          • icecoffemix

            If you by “Soul games” you mean hard difficulty then there’s nothing to worry about, side scroller can be really hard as hell.

            • bloodiOS

              I think the game is more fair than “hard” but I just can’t see exploration, the atmosphere, and the combat style works out the same way for side-scrolling given its limitation.

              • icecoffemix

                Hmm, have you ever play Symphony of the Night? Or Muramasa?

                • bloodiOS

                  Just a little bit at a friend house. But either way, I feel that Soul’s combat utilize a lot of 3D space and it just can’t work out the same way when crammed into 2D side scrolling style.

    • Elvick

      I’d hate that.

      Solely because I would hate to hear all the bitching.

  • Rikimaru

    I think what Nomura is doing with Final Fantasy XV is okay, I mean if you look at the gameplay video the gameplay looks nice and all but the control is just a bit ehh I mean if the guy playing was bad I could understand but refining the gameplay just a bit more seems like a wise move on his part.

  • PrinceHeir

    Lords of Shadow 2 Demo impressions.

    pretty good game so far, the controls are great, but can be confusing at times. i do not like how the R3 button has nothing assigned to it.

    why not put the instant camera on front like the other action games? since sometimes when i’m battling monsters, Dracula is facing on the screen and i can’t see the enemy.

    no lock on as well, since R2 button has no assigned button so far, why not use it as lock on like Metal Gear Rising did??

    combo’s are good, but are slow and sometimes are random. it’s a shame they didn’t put any combo specific combinations like in Devil May Cry’s or Ninja Gaidens, Bayonetta’s where you hold your stick down then push the attack button to perform a special move for example.

    here just either press and mash the button or hold it and they’ll do a swirling combo.

    of course they might add more combo’s in the later part of the game, but i don’t see it here.

    QTE can be a messed sometimes, i don’t mind when sucking one’s blood, but QTE during cutscenes is confusing since your not exactly hitting the button at the right time of the circle, but rather if the 2nd circle ligns for a few seconds then you can press it. it’s not timely per se, so it was confusing on why i keep failing even though i timed the QTE’s perfectly.

    artstyle is gorgeous though, very medevil like and tons of gothic churches.

    shame the music is too hollywood, other than the game’s opening, most of the OST from what i hear are forgettable at best.

    i do wonder if i should buy this? even though i didn’t finish Lords of Shadows, i could always do that with the collection. the one thing that attracts me is the artstyle, seeing Dracula in red with his badass void sword is awesome as hell.

    so anyone planning on picking this up? i suggest you go to gamestop and pre order it there since they have the Dracula Gray skin like in amazong, but with a poster of the game as well!!

    • bloodiOS

      My mind is telling me to wait for a PS4 version (even though there might not be one.)

  • PrinceHeir

    okay i just bought Armored Core V for Verdict and wow.

    if you think Dark Souls doesn’t hold your hands, this game basically pits you on top of a building and it’s your job to climb down in blindfolds!

    seriously this game is complicated as hell. i don’t know what i supposed to do, i suddenly need to do tons of joining clans, naming of my group, mechs.

    then it takes me to these online menu filled with factions all over the place.

    and there’s this help guide which is like two pages long and you have to read it carefully just to understand how the world works in this game.

    it turns out after a bit of research, that the game is more tactical style(like the older ones) and more online heavy. you need people to play with just to finish the mission as efficiently as possible.

    it reminds me of Lost Planet 2. even though i managed to finish the game single player, it wasn’t without some problems, AI too dumb to do anything, map is soo big that i’m force to do the grunt work even though we are all 4 players in this.

    it looks like Armored Core 4 and its sequel expansion For Answer is more of a arcade style of play, which probably suits me more than this Gran Turismo style of game.

    well at least i only paid $20.

    btw how was Armored Core 4 and For The Answer?

    and any other mech games that has these arcade style of play besides the Gundam Extreme Versus Games and Shin Musou Gundam??

    i might get Virtual-On on amazon, always wanted to play the game ever since i first played it on the arcades ^^

    • bloodiOS

      … Wait, so which one did you buy? Armored Core V or Armored Core: Verdict Day?

      • PrinceHeir

        oops, it’s Verdict Day.

        even though it’s clearly an expansion to V, i wonder why they drop the V on it?

        same with 4 and For(4) Answer?

        • bloodiOS

          Ah, okay, so how was the performance of the game? Any noticeable dip in frame rate?

          • PrinceHeir

            none so far, though i read it dips during online play like V.

            • bloodiOS

              Ah, that’s good then. I’ll probably pick it up when I get the chance. I didn’t pick up V because the performance was so atrocious (based on the demo anyway.)

              • PrinceHeir

                be wary though, this game will need a good chunk of your time just to understand the mechanics.

                i already plan on dropping this for 4 and For Answer since i prefer the arcade style of play, but with the complex customizations the series are known for.

                • bloodiOS

                • Seasqwaa

                  Basically, you will need time with it, with the new UNAC stuff and whatnot, which is all really confusing when programming your own. If you played AC:V though, it’s a hell of a lot like that, but I like it so so so much more. This is coming from a offline player too. Once you get a UNAC, missions become quite a bit easier. The gameplay definitely picks up a lot when you get new parts.
                  As for performance…. well, never reaches with FA had, but it’s mostly stable. Just a kinda…. low stable point.

                  Overall, I think it’s worth at least $20. I payed full price, and I’m happy enough.

                  • PrinceHeir

                    okay after seeing this, i’m definitely convince that i need to put more time on this!

                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCEd61FGeow

                    looks amazing as hell, but it’s not as fast compared to 4 and For Answers.

                    • Seasqwaa

                      Hope you enjoy it! And if you do go online, this video just reminded me…. Don’t join Evergreen……

                      the ending was confusing at first, but i understood the meaning eventually.^^

                    • Seasqwaa

                      Anyone but Evergreen! They’re…. a faction I guess? It’s just the menu theme. It’s very Evergreen!

                      And it is most definitely Watashi! I loved the show as well. It was one of those ones that just clicked. No headaches from fast talking for me! It all wrapped up a lot better than I expected too, though a little odd, heh.

    • shogunknight

      I wonder how Armored Core would be like on PS4, i hope they focus more on framerate. I can only imagine it, Verdict Day is a good game. The best armored core on PS3 i presume

      • bloodiOS

        Imagine an Armored Core game running at full 1080p and 30fps on PS4 with no fluctuation in frame rate and zero screen-tearing. I would cry so much.

        • Budgiecat

          They need to make proper scaled backgrounds. Too often with mech games I feel like I’m playing on a model train layout set. This also goes for Ace Combat and DW Gundam series…

        • PrinceHeir

          would rather have 60FPS with actual desctructible environments.

          even if it’s 720p only, i prefer smooth experience than resolution.

          • bloodiOS

            I think 1080p@30fps should allow enough wiggle room for destructible environment and honestly, a locked 30fps should be rather smooth enough already. Dropping the resolution will just impact the overall visibility though. Of course 1080p@60fps would be optimal but this is From Software we’re talking about.

            • shogunknight

              It should be possible for them to achieve this, sincerely i dont really need the graphical upgrade….much. Consistency in framerate for that game should be the first most important priority for Armored Core series. 60fps is the better option but i dont mind 30fps too, as long as its fixed on that framerate with no drops, From Software did dark souls also right? Blighttown also had framedrops in the game

              • bloodiOS

                Yeah, Blighttown… literally gave me nightmare about everything in the universe being rendered at 10fps.

                • shogunknight

                  Not only did i have troubling frame drops there, i died a lot there. Blighttown and New Londo ruins are my worst places in the game, even as ive finished the game more than twice now. Armored Core series have gone quite far. I played through probably all of the ones on PS2, most notably nine breaker (no missions, just a unit vs unit game) and nexus (forgot the name). Best addition when it was moved to ps3 was the heavy boost, on ps2 I was limited to a very few seconds of that boost usage. Because of that, i always used full armor/tank like units. Now its better (sometimes) when using energy unit without overheating

          • Zeongundam

            Armored Core with destructible environments? That idea is beautiful…where did these tears come from?

    • Budgiecat

      I prefer Another Century’s Episode series (except R)

      • PrinceHeir

        what’s wrong with Episode R!?!

        it has Gundam Seed Destiny, Full Metal Panic Fumoffu mechs, and Gundam Wing in it!!!

        • Budgiecat

          The confusing controls
          The lack of 3D animated pilots
          the lack of voice acting
          dull 2D visual novel cutscenes
          The overall lack of polish for an HD game
          Wasn’t even developed mainly by From Software (B.B. Studio did it)

          Def was inferior to the PS2 ones

          • PrinceHeir

            yeah, most of the scenes are in 2D with splice arts in it.

            i actually like the movement of the Gundam’s here, surprised that From Software didn’t do it O__O

            the PS2 ones are definitely classic indeed!

  • PrinceHeir

    @Budgiecat

    do you think this has any referenced to Super Robot Wars franchise?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QIphIN8Yvo

    i lol’d when i saw this XD

    • Budgiecat

      That’s the beginning of the Gundam 00 movie Awakening of the Trailblazer.
      The scenario there is Saji Crossroad (the guy in the brown jacket) watching the movie with his friend, said to himself “I wasn’t even in the movie”; because the movie they are watching is supposed to be reinactment of the final battle at the end of season 2, of which Saji was an indirect part of having helped the Gundam Meisters by piloting the docking ship for Gundam 00, due to being caught up with the whole battle as his girlfriend Louise had been on the opposing battle having lost her parents in an air strike and seeking revenge and what not…

    damn seeing the movie scenes, it makes me want to replay it once again and make me wonder why i didn’t like it in the first place.

  • jujubee88

    People should appreciate the ones they’ve got during this time. Fuck the system, yes. Don’t label yourself as a geek and be a sociapath, yes. But also, let’s make this about loving the people around you and esp the ones you know.

    Have a good night, y’all! :)

    • Budgiecat

      I know….it’s like you guys don’t appreciate me here….

      • GhostNomad
        • jujubee88

          You two would make a cute couple! ^_^

        • neocatzon

          I’m just lurking around and gawd, so fitting.

          • jujubee88

            That’s them from valentines 2013.

        • shogunknight

          lol, That looks more like ” I own you, cat”

    • GhostNomad

      If you wanna get technical, people should appreciate their friends and family at all times, not just on certain days :P

      • jujubee88

        This is true.

        • jujubee88

          (Well, maybe not all days.)

          I guess the point is, no one really likes the pomp and circumstance of Valentines day (because it’s so utterly manufactured) and some people hate confronting their sense of loneliness (even though they aren’t, no matter who you are) on this day, specifically. Why? “BECAUSE YOU SHOULD BE A COUPLE WHO ARE HAPPY AND BUY HEARTS AND CANDY!”

          So, just the recipe of just be a well meaning and all loving person in a smarter society really is what I think the solution to all this should be! :D

          #solvingtheworldsproblems

      • Elvick

        But they don’t.

        • GhostNomad

          Never said they do. Just because they should doesn’t mean they have, are, or ever will! That’s up to the individual!

          • Elvick

            True enough.

    • Elvick

      People who bitch about Valentine’s Day annoy me.

      No one said you HAVE to make it commercial. And yes we SHOULD show our appreciation to our loved ones every day, but we DON’T… so it’s a nice reminder.

      If you don’t like the cards, candy, flowers, etc. Don’t buy them. Derp.

      Not that hard.

  • Gariya

    Can a cute girl please give me a chocolate?

  • PrinceHeir

    okay so basically we have 3 episodes of recaps/talks from Gundam Seed Destiny.

    one is about the battles Kira and Athrun fought, another is about Meer, and now it’s about the Destiny Plan.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAabP4iHDJ4

    so basically they have 3 more episodes left, and now they have to include the special scenes from the Special Edition compilation movies as well as the

    Final Plus: The Chosen Future scene at the end of the series.

    wtf Sunrise, i can see why Destiny is known for reusing alot of animation and recaps throughout the series.

  • GhostNomad
    • jujubee88

      Damn. That lady needs some help.

      • jujubee88

        Though, if she’s into self mutilation and the guy knew about this and tried to get into a relationship knowing that about her.

        Hmm. Still. I don’t like it when people treat relationships like a sport and they try and “one up” another (post breaking-up).

  • bloodiOS

    • new_tradition

      Oh god, it’s happening.

      Games are looking too real D:

      Screw it. I think after 8th gen, I’m out. I can see myself quoting Sora if I played a 9th gen game “like, is any of this for real, or not?” >_>

      • Budgiecat

        photo realistic games will be a reality by 2020

        • new_tradition

          D:

          • Budgiecat

            also sentient animals will be a reality by 3100…

  • bloodiOS

    *LOL* Lightning might strike again in later entries of the Final Fantasy series:

    http://www.siliconera.com/2014/02/14/lightnings-story-truly-may-guest-future-final-fantasy/

    • karmacoma

      I’ve always liked Lightning, so I’m cool with that. Although I imagine he means something more along the lines of a Dissidia than say, Lightning being the new Cid.

      • Budgiecat

        But in Dissidia titles, every main FF hero’s inclusion is that of a ‘protagonist’, which then conflicts with what is said here:

        “So there is a possibility that Lightning would appear in other future Final Fantasy titles, not as a protagonist, but as a GUEST character.”

        Ugh…..NO NO NO!

        • karmacoma

          Well, I didn’t mean actually Dissidia, but a crossover title in that vein. But I definitely see her popping up in Kingdom Hearts III, which while not titled Final Fantasy, is pretty much considered Final Fantasy: Disney Edition.

          • shogunknight

            That makes sense, it might actually be where we would see her next

          • Budgiecat

            KH is more than obvious but she should NOT be in FF XV

            whos the dicknut that keeps downvoting me…

        • shogunknight

          So that means its possible we may actually see a final fantasy that taes place in the same timeline or dimension of FF13

        • new_tradition

          Not necessarily. If Dissidia 011 ever comes about, the story could focus on a completely new set of playable characters, and Lightning and everyone else would just be there in a story capacity, or assists at the very most.

          (Until you manage to unlock the 012 and 013 stories again xD)

    • shogunknight

      Whats up with square and this woman, i dont hate her but isnt this too much?

      • Budgiecat

        Creepy Toriyama waifu

    • Pyrofrost

      And with that, another comment section for an SE article on Siliconera becomes a shit-fest. It’s just like the comment sections on the SE articles here at Gematsu.

      If anything, that is the one thing Siliconera and Gematsu have in common; as hating SE, FFXIII, and Lightning has been the hip thing for the gamer community on the internet to do for the past few years.

      • Budgiecat

        Siliconera is run by Nazi’s so I’m surprised people are even allowed to type their opinions

        • Pyrofrost

          SE articles are typically moderated like articles here, because the comment section is click-bait itself.

          • Budgiecat

            dont know what you mean by that.

      • bloodiOS

        Well, I don’t know about whether or not if it’s a hip or joint thing but personally, having seen her being the major focus of FF for half a decade really is starting to wear me out, so I find it rather irritating that they would want to continue attaching her to anything FF that they can get their hands on.

        • Pyrofrost

          I’m ready to move on myself. I’m just saying most SE comment sections have been a broken record since before the release of the first game, especially on “niche” sites.

          Besides that, they smeared Cloud and FFVII all over the place a few years back. It even got a shitty movie.

          • bloodiOS

            I guess it does get repetitive but I usually try to stay away from such topic. This though, was a knee-jerk reaction on my part, with me screaming “fuck no!” at Toriyama expressing his desire to have more of Lightning.

            Anyway yeah, Cloud… so glad we moved on from there (or not, given Lightning’s SOLDIER outfit…)

            • Pyrofrost

              I understand, believe me, I do.
              It’s the same way I feel any time I see some new iteration of P4 (even though I will buy it).

      • Elvick

        I don’t mind Lightning, but she needs to stay in her lane.

        And by lane, I mean her own games. Short of cross over stuff like Dissidia. I don’t mind that.

        FFXIII sux~ SE is hit and miss, but I still have hope for them. Their western stuff is great IMO. Japanese is where we have problems, but hey, we get Drakengard 3 so it’s a start.

        • Pyrofrost

          I personally liked XIII, along with all of the other ones, including the online ones. Oh yeah, and I fucking hated FFVIII, purely for gameplay reasons.
          I have no problem with the story though. I actually LOVE romance. I would like to see JRPGs implement a strong love theme from time to time, seriously.

          But anywho, I do get what you mean by stay in her lane though. Same with Cloud and FFVII, imo. For crossovers and such, it doesn’t bother me. However I can do without the 4 years of FFXIII, and the two console generations of FFVII xD

          • Elvick

            I want to love FFVIII, but can’t for the life of me work the junction system in my favor. :P

            And I’ve yet to beat the game because the damn scaling enemies. I’ve gotten to disc 4 multiple times only to get screwed there. :P

            I do like the game though.

            And I wanted to like XIII, but it’s just too boring as a game. I don’t mind the story (though hate that some of it is in the datalog thing) and don’t mind most of the characters (although Vanille’s voice acting makes me want to punch something).

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

      I wouldn’t be surprised if she did. The ending to LR leaves us thinking she’ll probably make a guest appearance in XV. It certainly doesn’t help that XV is part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis project, so for all intents and purposes… She could legitimately make an appearance in the game.

    • new_tradition

      The funny thing is that Lightning herself would be super angry if she got taken to one more fucking world after everything she already went through.

      • bloodiOS

        I bet xD

      • GhostNomad

        I’d actually love it if things turned out like that.

        *Lightning is just hanging out, livin’ it up while on vacation for the rest of her life*

        *Shit hits the fan wherever she is*

        “Oh hell no, I’m outta here.”

        • new_tradition

    funny thing is that this is the exact same day last year where i first started playing the game for the first time.

    so anyone here did anything for Valentine’s Day?

    • GhostNomad

      I’ve been meaning to get back into Catherine. Never finished it the first time around since one of the puzzles frustrated the hell outta me. Didn’t have time to put into it after that but now I have plenty of that. Kinda wanna get all nine endings but at the same time I really don’t wanna go through all of those puzzles nine different times >.>

      Far as my Valentine’s, I spent the day with my friend and her baby daughter. Drove around for the most part, checked out a Lego store, and looked for a new phone. I also had a badass burger, so I can’t complain :D

      • MrFinalgamer

        You can always just play the game on easy. Unless you’re attempting to platinum the game.

        • GhostNomad

          Nah, that’s no fun. I don’t care about the Platinum, but I do care about the story, and I enjoy the gameplay. It just frustrated the hell out of me back then and I didn’t get the chance to get back into it :P

      • GhostNomad

        I hear ya. I get a similar feeling but that’s actually the reason why I love them so much. I can feel the player’s emotions and it kinda resonates with me. The weird part is that feeling all those emotions makes me happy, so that’s another emotion to throw into the mix, and yet another reason why I love those versions so much :D

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

      Really loved the DLC music too. The OST was amazing and the remixes were just as amazing, some more than others, imo. Hell, I don’t think I heard a single song in Nier I didn’t like, lol.

        Not bad. Doesn’t go well with my current mood, but still adding it to my favorites for future listening!

        Far as the DLC goes, to be honest I’ve never played it…. I started it once, got dropped in two seconds, said “Fuck it, I’ll do this later!”, never got back to it. Gonna get through the rest of the endings and the DLC before Drakengard 3 though, that’s for damn sure.

      I’m not in Japan either, but I’m looking forward to it too – I think it’s really important.

      There’s not a lot on the PS4 at the moment, but I think as it’s launched in Japan, that we’ll start to see more and more titles being produced.

I know that sound CRAZY, but I couldn’t give a shit about most of them, especially what goes on in their personal lives.

              • Budgiecat

                Even if you didn’t you would still know just simply due to the amount of exposure thats pushed out by the media

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

                  You kind of have to follow the media at particular times for the exposure to even matter.

    • Elvick

      Plenty of people care. Negatively and positively.

      That argument annoys me to no end. If “no one cared”, we could just live life and idiots wouldn’t try and prevent us from living our lives. We wouldn’t be abducted and tortured in Russia. Kansas wouldn’t have even voted on a bill that allows people to discriminate against gay people. etc.

      Her speech was awesome.

      Until gay kids grow up without feeling like shit about themselves for not fitting societal norms imposed upon birth, it matters and everyone SHOULD care to rid people of those feelings. Until then, it has to be talked about and people have to be open. Otherwise, it’s as she says in the video.

        • $18114340

          I feel like this series thrives on cliffhangers and it’s probably going to have less impact if you marathon it. 24 episodes of that is going to be exhausting, so good luck.

          • GhostNomad

            It’s fair to say that most series are made with cliffhangers in mind. There are the obvious exceptions where pretty much everything is resolved within an episode or two but that’s another thing entirely.

            And I do understand that some of the suspense and speculation is lost when you binge on a show, but I’m okay with that. I’ll consider taking your advice and watch a couple of episodes before deciding on whether I should continue until I can’t handle anymore for the time being or space it out but that probably won’t be anytime soon. Still got a hell of a lot of other shows and manga to watch/read.

        • Gariya

          The gameplay is pretty fresh. I mean, it’s simple and it’s not that innovative, but the core gameplay is certainly original and is something that was never done before.

      Loved that game. nb4jokes

      one of my favorites from last year. Great acting, though I wish they would go the Naughty Dog approach to facial animation.

      • Budgiecat

        eh? ND’s facial animation looks cartoonish at times…

        • Elvick

          In Uncharted maybe. Never in The Last of Us.

          Beyond suffered from Uncanny Valley. Very awkward, very often. Literally every scene with William Defoe was hard to watch. He looked so plastic and terribad. Ellen looked fine at times, but sometimes… nope.

          I prefer ND’s method. TLoU >>>>

          • Budgiecat

            There’s some moments of uncanny valley too in TLoU. I noticed it in the Left Behind DLC when they try to make Ellie laugh..

            • Elvick

              Not as bad as Beyond.

              But I get what you mean. I was watching a .gif early on kotaku from the game (both of them laughing) and it was a bit awkward.

              But overall, it is way better than the plastic-y look Beyond has. But Beyond was way better than the weirdness of Heavy Rain.

              • Budgiecat

                The scene with Jodie and Kadeem Harrison in the elevator when the place is blowing up and he turns to her and says we probably wont make it, his face looked very realistic there

          Reminds me of this:

          • Elvick

            ewwww

    • bloodiOS

      Mmmnnn… it might be a port of DmC for PS4 and XBO. The main reason I hate the original so much is because it was dog shit on the PS3, which was too much to take considering the superb in-game performance of DMC4. If it’s available on the PS4 at 1080p and solid 60fps I’ll consider buying it.

      • Budgiecat

        That’s still not going to fix the lack of proper lock on, dumb color coordinated enemies, glitches, horrible character assasination of Vergil, Dante being an unfunny cursing douchebag, Kat being practically useless, and gross as fuck enemies Mundus and his ugly wife sex scene

        • bloodiOS

          Glitches can be smoothed out, others stuffs really don’t bother me that much and I don’t take the plot seriously anyway so it wouldn’t matter.

          • Budgiecat

            oh I forgot : broken combo system

            • bloodiOS

              Didn’t mind that either.

              • Budgiecat

                how low are you gonna bring your standards??

                • bloodiOS

                  I initially had such low expectations for the game that the final product actually turned out tolerable.

                  • Budgiecat

                    You dont often do that….

                    • bloodiOS

                      Mind you, I pretty much got the game for free so it doesn’t bother me all that much. After all, it doesn’t matter how the game turned out, no skin off my nose.

                  • GhostNomad

                    It’s really not a terrible game. Sure it has some technical issues and the story seems to be written by someone who took one semester of college classes and suddenly believes they know everything about everything, but that’s not exactly unique in the world of games. It had a few interesting environments, some of the enemy designs were also kinda cool, but I just don’t feel that the gameplay was there.

                    My beef is that it tries to be a Devil May Cry game and doesn’t deliver, it takes a few jabs at the previous games, and the chief designer was acting like a dick. If you’re gonna have someone do the talking, at least pick someone who’ll pretend to respect the franchise that has been entrusted to them :P

                    • $18114340

                      It’s not a terrible game (I’d say it’s merely bad and forgettable), and that’s precisely why I’m so angry about its existence. It may actually be a good game, I don’t care — it’s arguably not the Devil May Cry game a lot of fans were looking for and even goes so far as to have an attitude about it. I might even suggest that it’s a slap in the face to some fans. Hell, I’d say I think Devil May Cry 2 is more in line with the series, and it’s pretty much universally agreed upon that it was a terrible game — but it has that trademark DMC spunk and charm that DmC does its best to disrespect.

                      At least with Castlevania Lords of Shadow the developers were keen on respecting its predecessors. DmC tries so hard to pretend that the entire series never happened. But the game performed pretty well critically and also in terms of sales, so I have no reason to believe Capcom is going to abandon this avenue so easily.

                    • GhostNomad

                      Personally I get the impression that DmC acknowledges the previous games, it just sees itself as the clearly superior experience in gameplay, story, and design. Same feeling I got from pretty much every interview prior to the game’s release.

                  • $18114340

                    Even the sex scene?

                    • bloodiOS

                      Well, like I said above, I didn’t take the plot seriously so I didn’t particularly feel anything from whatever happened during the course of the gameplay.

        • Kobracon

          Very true. Hilary Duff aside, was Raven a child actor? I only recall ‘That’s so Raven’ and she was a teen in that.

          • Elvick

            I don’t remember where the Cosby Show aired, but she is a child star. She was in Hanging with Mr. Cooper from Season 2 to the end (5 seasons). Right after that.

            I guess Raven’s first Disney thing was in 1999 (Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century) so she would have been 14 then (or 13, depending on the dates).

            She was in that for Disney, Kim Possible, That’s So Raven (first show to break the 3 season limit Disney had always run with before). The Cheetah Girls, Princess Diaries 2…

            Plus movies and music. Definitely a child star. I’d consider he a Disney star, despite her origins going before then (unlike most). I think she’s probably the one that had the most background of any Disney star. And probably the one most deserving of the success.

            edit; Oh, it seems she was in The Muppets at Walt Disney in 1990. So if that counts. Aired on NBC though.

    Got my 3DS on Tuesday and have been playing it non-stop ever since. Mostly SMTIV. Game is kicking my ass, but I love it so much. It sucks to start playing a game once everybody around you has already finished it, though. Played enough of Soul Hackers, Etrian IV and Untold to get Streetpass functionality, although I don’t really expect to get many hits with each of them. I have to say, the new EO games kind of make the original completely obsolete. I’ve only beaten the third game but I’m close to beating the first, and it’s a real drag in the later strata (specifically, the fourth onwards). What little I’ve played of Untold really makes me reluctant to go back to EO1 but I’m determined to get through it soon. Luigi’s Mansion 2 is pretty fun, too.

    All these games that I want make me really regret doubting the 3DS back at launch. I was a vocal detractor, but now I realize I really underestimated the system and now I feel stupid for it. Gives me pause for the future, and I’m really hoping Nintendo can pull through with the Wii U.

    • GhostNomad

      You’d be surprised about the StreetPass hits, actually. I felt the same way when I started SMTIV but I get my card slots filled up pretty fast just by going for a run. I don’t even have to go to places where one would expect gamers to congregate.

      I also do kinda regret giving my original 3DS away. I bought it on a whim when it first released, but with few games I was actually interested in, I didn’t see much point in keeping it. Skipping forward to present day, I get anxious when I so much as think about all the games that I want to play >.>

    • Budgiecat

      doubt it

    • Locksus

      I love my 3DS XL very much. I just wish we who live in Europe would get SMTIV already. I’m very glad for EOU release date announcement, though.
      The 3DS is my first Nintendo console since Gameboy Color so I’ve missed out on a lot of Ninty games. I’m kinda bummed about that.

      • GhostNomad

        I suggest that you try to get your hands on a cheap DS Lite. It can play DS and GB games (in case you’ve never owned a Gameboy Advance, some fantastic games on there). You’ll still be able to play your Color games on the DS Lite if you wish to do so.

      What was wrong with it?

      • GhostNomad

        Hardly. I’ve been taking things apart ever since I was a kid! I just wasn’t as good at putting them back together back then :D

        At first it refused to turn on, and I knew from the past that it would refuse to read disks and memory cards, as well as have issues with the controller ports. Basically I made sure everything was as it should be since I’d already taken it apart.

        • AdamBoy64

          Oh okay. So you like checked the connections inside, and then reconnected something you had unplugged in the past?

          Still, having knowledge of hardware is pretty good.

          I picked up a PS2 recently (well, late 2011, not so recent now). I’m planning to play through a game on it this year – I’m aware it’s older hardware these days, so I hope it goes the distance.

      People have asked me to do LPs for the import titles I play, but I never agree to it. I have a few reasons behind why I won’t ever do this:

      1. I don’t want to have to talk while playing a game. Sure, I could just record the dialogue after I finish, but that would ruin the element of surprise.

      2. Talking can ruin the experience. I don’t know about you, but I hate hearing some random dude’s voice over the sound effects of the game, as well as the original VA, and BGM.

      3. Similar to point #2. I want to give people the original experience rather than altering it in some way.

      I have almost uploaded 1,000 gameplay videos to my Youtube account at the moment, but haven’t said a word in any of them. Sure, I realize how popular LPs have become, but I also realize how annoying it can be to just want to watch the gameplay without having to listen to some jackass try to make jokes or spew profanity while he fails.

    • Elvick

      If I didn’t hate talking, I would have loved to do those.

      Probably be a good motivation to actually play games.

    • Kobracon

      I actually wouldn’t mind, its just that I lack any of the gear to capture footage or even a decent microphone.

      I would reply back with a single song itself, but nobody has uploaded them to Youtube or Niconico ><

      I've basically been listening to FictionJunction's latest album Elemental and it has been really great. Anyway, here's a site where you can check out some short samples. Just click on the music note and it will play a sample of the track (usually under a minute long).

    Is Seiki 4k tv good? I am considering to get that for my PS4. Other brands 4k is too expensive. I can get a Seiki 4k tv 39 inches for 500 bucks. Anyone?

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

      Personally, I think it still might be a little too soon to invest in a 4k television. You won’t really be able to put it to much use at the moment due to its lack of support, so I’d just wait on getting one for now, but that’s just me.

      • Martian Wong

        What is currently being offered in 4k? I dont watch TV much as I watch mostly on the internet. Personally, I want the best possible experience with FFXV.

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

          Well, if you’re wanting the best experience for FFXV, then you’re DEFINITELY going to want to wait on getting this TV since that won’t be out for a while, haha. I just remember so many people being so quick to go out and buy 3D televisions when they first came out and basically wasted money on them because there was hardly any support for them.

          4k definitely isn’t getting that much support at the moment though, so I’d hold off on it for now.

          • Martian Wong

            Got it, I didnt even bother with the 3D tv. I am fine without it at all. I just leave it to the movie theater. I will wait until FFXV to have a release date first.

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

              That would probably be best, yeah. That way, maybe you can buy something you are more confident in while paying less too.

              • Martian Wong

                Yes, after all I never heard of Seiki. Thanks for the input.

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

                  To be honest, I’ve never heard of them before either, haha. I’m more familiar with Samsung, Sony, and the like.

    • shogunknight

      I think you should consider:
      1. Checking youtube for vids or reviews on the TV
      2. Amazon Reviews to clarify (i think its the 39inch one you want right?)

      I think its a really great bargain for the price, but ive never tried or checked on Seiki TVs before

      • Martian Wong

        I am referring to the one on Amazon. It does look like a steal. Samsung and other brands are well over a 1k or 2k for larger size.

        • shogunknight

          Ok, so it must be the 39 inch TV

          http://www.amazon.com/Seiki-Digital-SE50UY04-50-Inch-120Hz/dp/B00BXF7I9M

          Price is a good steal, i saw cnets review. For the most part, it gets the job done, only that one has to be close to it to fully experience the 4k resolution. Most users buy it to connect their PCs to it.

          http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/seiki-se50uy04-4k-uhd/4505-6482_7-35757100.html

          • Martian Wong

            The bad: Must sit close to the
            50-inch screen to realize the benefit of 4K content; very little 4K
            content currently available; picture quality with non-4K content is
            worse than that of most other TVs in this price range, with light black
            levels, poor screen uniformity, and subpar video processing.
            Does that mean if I play non-4k stuff, they look bad? Will PS4 being able to handle 4k?

            • shogunknight

              Right now, no. Probably in the future. Its probably the reason why most people that purchase it use it as a PC monitor instead, like what @TetsuyaHikari:disqus said, its best you get the TV you are most confident with. 4k console gaming isnt going to come any time soon. I suggest waiting until the 4k gaming support comes, probably by then popular products like Samsung and others would have gone down.

              • Martian Wong

                well, hopefully the price of Samsung or others brand will be lower by then. But based on the review on amazon. Seiki is not that bad.

      Less than a week before it comes out :3

      It’s really weird though since the game is coming out on the 22nd, which is a Saturday. Most games seem to come out on a Thursday (or probably Tuesday as well), so I’m used to getting them on Friday, but I guess this time I will have to wait until Monday. Well, that’s IF CDJapan is going to be working next weekend.

      I imagine they would be since it would be pretty silly to not be working on the launch day of PS4 in Japan.

    • Gariya

      How improved is the combat?

  • GhostNomad

    Protip: When you hate yourself, go for a run.

    If you’re like me, you’ll hate yourself even more for being weak and run farther than you probably should. Case in point, my normal run is 7 miles one way, then a long walk back to do shopping. Added almost 9 miles to that out of frustration and had to call my friend’s sister to pick me up >.>

    Word of caution if you follow my advice, don’t expect to use your legs anytime soon! :D

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m hungry <.<

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

      >When you hate yourself, go for a run

      If I did that, I’d be running all the time. Screw that.

      >had to call my friend’s sister to pick me up

      Sorry, I have to laugh at this because the first thought that came to mind is “Why does he have his friend’s sister’s number?”, lol. Bad dog!

      • GhostNomad

        I hate myself too, that’s why I run the 7 miles daily. Today was just one of those days where a whole lot of shit just piles on!

        Far as the number, they live together! Hell, I have her number, her sister’s, her mother’s, and even a few of her classmates’ numbers! I live with too many women….. >.>

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

          They live together? Oh, how convenient :p

          “Yeah, I was just trying to call my friend, but his sister picked up instead. Oh darn.”

          Maybe you should be a fox instead. You are quite sly!

          • GhostNomad

            See, that’s the thing. The friend is a she, and I’m far more interested in her than her sister! That said, it’s not going anywhere since I’m in the ‘awesome-friend-who-will-drop-anyone-that-dares-mess-with-her-daughter-and-sister’ zone. I’m the babysitter and guardian but not guardian in the ‘parent/boyfriend’ sense as much as that one dude she used to have a thing for and would spend many hours flirting with (that’d be me, just to clarify). Alas, things didn’t go as I’d hoped back then so I’m back to square two :D

    • Elvick

      Preferred her hair in the original. But the game looks awesome.

  • 罪罰

    Not sure why everybody gets so defensive when I mention that Ground Zeroes is a an overpriced glorified demo. I mean, I love Kojima and his work and everything but I am not that delusional. $15 would’ve been just perfect for that kind of experience not to mention it will be most likely be included in the full game.

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

      Included in the full game? Doubtful. Ground Zeroes is their way of saying, “If you want the full story, pay us now or wait for a ‘Complete Edition’ way later when we include it with The Phantom Pain’.”

      I’ll be REALLY surprised if they include it in the initial release of The Phantom Pain though. This is something they will milk dry, so you can probably expect a GOTY/Complete/etc. edition later that has a “2-for-1″ type package.

      • 罪罰

        Dammit Jewnami.

    • $18114340

      People get defensive because nobody outside of the press has played it yet, and so making sweeping statements like “glorified demo” are pretty unsubstantiated.

      Let the people who spend $30 and regret it call the game that. Until then it helps no-one to make snap judgements of something nobody’s played.

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

        Nope. It’s official. It’s artwork drawn by Makoto Raiku and is known as an “endcard”. It’s for episode 10.

        I don’t watch SnK, so I’m not entirely sure what an “endcard” is or what happened in episode 10, but that’s what I found out about it.

    *Sigh* I can never understand how my grandmother can keep harping on and on about how I should look and shit. It really gets on my nerve when she starts mentioning my finger nails. She scornfully asks me why I left my finger nails so long, or am I trying to be gay, or that why don’t I go and get my nails polished or some shit? FUCK HER and her stereotypical bullshit! It’s my body and I do whatever the hell I want with it! Fuck, if I didn’t come to visit my grandfather, I would never walk into this fucking house again. What a perfect way to ruin my Sunday… Oh, by the way, these are her objects of disdain:
    Heh, haters gonna hate. I ain’t gonna cut them, unless they break.

    • 罪罰

      Yeah, grandmothers always complain about the looks. My grandma lives with me and my parents and she complained about my beard (not a long beard or dirty, it’s nicely trimmed and clean) for a year until I finally told her to shut up. Mom didn’t took it too well but she was also annoyed. I know a lot of dudes who have their nails long, most of them play music and some just like it that way. Don’t let it get to you. Grandma’s can’t be helped.

          • bloodiOS

            Okay, I worded that badly, so I’ll fix that. But I do feel that I have to come to visit though, so does the rest of my family. It’s our belief to keep my grandfather as happy as possible before he passes away. The same goes for the rest of my family members, you have a duty to be there for them before they die to ensure that when the time comes, they will have a good passing.

            And I can always put a giant fan in front of the treadmill to simulate the wind. For anything else can I just use my imagination.

            • GhostNomad

              Suppose we’ll have to agree to disagree then! I only go on a treadmill as a last resort (or if I’m drunk and about to do something really stupid) :P

              • bloodiOS

                Well, most of the time, I would rather spend time riding my bike. Much less stress on the legs, so I end up going longer and burning up more calories when I’m done.

      Gotta love the edit. Cover dat ass. Or, just research a topic before you make a click bait article. I guess then it wouldn’t be click bait though.

      Yay 2014 journalism. Post opinion pieces with zero research. Profit!

      I use to cut myself and even if she was doing that in the show, it wouldn’t have bothered me at all. The vast majority of people who self-harm don’t do it because they saw it somewhere and thought “oh neat, let me try that!”.

      Stupid.

  • bloodiOS

    Heh, Hideo Kojima’s “slight difference” between the PS4 and XBO version turned out to be a difference of 1,152,000 pixels. Now let’s see how Shinji Mikami’s “almost identical” is going to turn out.

    • EX+

      Lol
      Tbh, I thought the XBO version would be 900p, just because Kojima’s a good dev. But then again, I should’ve remembered that the Titanfail’s beta was running at 792p on a modified version of the source engine.

      • bloodiOS

        792p with lo-res textures, screen-tearing and frame rate starts dropping when more than one Titan occupy the screen. They really should starting locking the resolution at 720p to better improve the performance of that game.

        • EX+

          Lol, Respawn if full of people who used to make COD. Graphical fidelity is their last priority.
          Whoa, wait. There’s screen tearing?!
          I really don’t get the hype behind Titanfall.

          • bloodiOS

            Graphics on console is one thing, but they better have a hi-res textures pack ready for PC gamers or folks are going to be upset. Well anyway, people like it for the gameplay. I personally don’t so I wouldn’t know.

  • EX+

    Hey guys! I’ve been off the site for 2-3 months now. It feels good to be back!

    • DarkLegacy

      Yes it’s been 2 months. Glad you’re back though

      • EX+

        Thanks Sorahearts. I see you’ve changed names.

        • DarkLegacy

          Yeah. Glad you remember :)

  • EX+

    I’ve just caught up with all the recent news on stuff like FF15 and P5.
    I know some of you guys are tired of waiting. But let’s be honest, this is Nomura we’re talking about. He’s practically known for procrastinating on games. He’s still one of the best directors in Japan to me, but seriously guys. Lol
    I expect to see some new gameplay at the PS4 launch event for FF15 and a story trailer for KH3.
    As for P5- I am foaming at the mouth for that game. I saw the recent interview. I cannot wait to see the new Broswagonist and the new soundtrack.

    • Rikimaru

      IM THIRSTY FOR FFXV GAMEPLAY, GIMME.

      • EX+

        I wonder what’ll look like. Hopefully we’ll get to see Prompto, Ignis, Cor and Gladiolus.
        I think it goes like this from what we’ve seen.
        Noctis: Balanced
        Ignis: Mage
        Gladiolus: Melee
        Prompto: Marksman
        I assume Cor will be balanced like Noct, considering he’s a supposed war hero.

        • Rikimaru

          It’s only Noctis who has the power to shift weapons right?? And this quote
          “A final act of love from the last king”
          is giving out many hints as to what might happen.

          • EX+

            You’re suggesting that Regis will die? Because in the 2011 trailer, he said he’d be the last king, but he wasn’t talking to Noct. And considering Idola Eldercarp had him at gun point, I’m assuming he died during the invasion on Accordo.
            And yeah, Noct is the only one who can shift weapons.

            • Rikimaru

              Maybe, I don’t know. Its either that or the royalty of Nifleheim falls.

              But there’s the part “A final act of love”, what does that mean? I imagine that its something to do with Noctis. Or maybe Regis isn’t the last king. There’s too much questions.

              The only question I want to be answered right now is how long is the game going to be?

              • EX+

                It’s a Nomura game, so I say 40-50 hours.

                • Rikimaru

                  Really? Damn, that’s gonna be so satisfying.

            • DarkLegacy

              And a load of swords were pointing at Idola

        • Budgiecat

          I suspect a lot of ‘old man’ references to Cor despite him not even looking old…

          • EX+

            He is 42. Prompto won’t let that go. Lol

  • EX+

    So, I’ve been rewatching Avatar The Last Airbender.
    And damn. I’m not saying Korra sucks, but at this point in time, LOK pales in comparison ATLA. In my opinion at least.

  • EX+

    Why do some Persona fans absolutely hate P4? Is it just because of the lighter tone? Because in my opinion, the gameplay is slightly better than P3.
    Anyway, can’t wait for P5.

    • 罪罰

      Because they played it first.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Pretty much what Corn said. People started with P4, disregarding any other vames beforw it, and putting it such a high pedesral irks me. We need a proper P2 remake…

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Both P2 games remade on one disc/cart would be amazing.

        • MrFinalgamer

          with classic OST & the extra story added to the PSP versions *drools*

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

            Perfect. lol

        • Elvick

          Yes please. We still haven’t gotten the ‘full’ experience in the west.

          We were so close on PSP… but no. D:<

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

            Yah… they fucked us with that.

    • PrinceHeir

      well for starters, a lot of people played their first Persona games as P3/P4, so they assumed every other entry is like that which is silly since Persona is one of the spin offs of the main Shin Megami Tensei games(who also derive from the Megaten games) which is filled with darker tones and devil incantations.

      i think Persona is already becoming its own thing and straying away from Shin Megami Tensei, much like how The Legend of Heroes is doing its own thing compared to its main entry, Dragon Slayers.

      i do hope Persona 5 returns to the darker tone of the first two games, but knowing how Persona 3/4 sold crazy in Japan and how people are still buying spin offs and the fighting game brought back some renewed interest, i really doubt they’ll abandon their cash cow at all.

      • EX+

        I know what you’re talking about and I’m sure P5 will have a darker tone than P4 at the very least.
        My problem is that Atlus could make it darker than the darkest brand of dark chocolate and people would still complain.

        • MrFinalgamer

          I don’t think so. Not a lot of people, if any, complained with how dark P3 got. I ddo hope to see philemon, and good ol nyar

          • Budgiecat

            As compared to what though back then? P1, P2? SMT III, Devil Summoner 1 & 2?

            • MrFinalgamer

              as compared to everyone that started with 4 and jumped to 3 expecting the same thing.
              TBH P3 did get quite dark in some portions.

  • DarkLegacy

    Anyone know how to take down Legendary Ship in AC IV? That is the hardest ship to fight

    • Rikimaru

  • PrinceHeir

    looks like they’re setting their sights on Final Fantasy XII International Edition!!

    http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/02/17/yoshinori-kitase-on-final-fantasy-xii-hd-if-they-think-its-a-good-idea-they-might-opt-for-it/

    yes please!!! though if Square Enix is generous, they would contact Matsuno and put back his original story version of the game.

    but we all know this is only gonna be an HD upgrade with International content.

    the asian or JPN version might even have Dual Audio like FFX | FFX-2 HD did!

    • MrFinalgamer

      God i hope so ! I loved FFXII back then. If we could have a Vaan-less plot, i would buy it full price

    • bloodiOS

      “That’s why we wanted to remaster some of our PS2 titles. We wanted to make them more accessible and available to as many gamers as possible.”

      Sounds like there will be an Xbox 360 version if they ever work on remastering it. Seriously though, I’m not sure how they’re going to sell the game, because I haven’t seen any company selling one single HD remaster title at retail before. Maybe they’ll add Final Fantasy Tactics into the mix, since it already has HD assets from the Android/iOS version.

      • PrinceHeir

        well Okami HD was a thing.

        Soulcalibur II HD Online, Resident Evil Revelations(well it’s a HD version of a 3DS game), No More Heroes Paradise,

        • bloodiOS

          I wasn’t aware that Okami and Soulcalibur II is available for retail (at least in the West.) Revelations and No More Heroes don’t really count since they’re regular enhanced ports that doesn’t have the “HD Remaster” label slapped on. If Square is ever going to remaster FFXII it’s going to have that label slapped on it, and I don’t think people would really want buy a single HD-remaster title at retail (assuming that Square probably won’t price any less than $29.99.)

          • PrinceHeir

            actually Okami DID have retail version in Japan which i have.

            not really, it’s still an HD remaster since all the assets and resolution have been greatly improved.

            it doesn’t need these so called “HD remaster” label just to be categorized.

            and is something wrong buying a single HD version of game? people seem to think “HD remaster” is supposed to have a collection of games.

            oh add in Samurai Warriors 2 HD, since Koei is doing one as well.

            • bloodiOS

              Right but that’s Japan, release of one single HD remaster title for retail is non-existent in the West, and there’s a good reason for that. For one thing, enhanced ports without the “HD Remaster” label, are, more often than not, actually enhanced ports with a good amount of time and efforts put into them. On the other hand, “HD-Remaster” can range from shit-ports without any actual improvement (or even gimped in comparison to the original) to something more dedicated (like Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath, for example.) Unfortunately, we’re likely to see more shit-ports or simple ports than actual dedicated efforts for HD-remastering so people are usually more wary of HD-remaster titles than they would to actual enhanced ports, which is why there are usually more than one title in the package to better entice people (it might have been optional in the very beginning but right now it’s a must.) Square Enix is one of the few dedicated ones who actually spend time and efforts for their remasters but I’m not seeing them releasing the remastered version of FFXII without putting the HD label on it. And frankly, nowadays, unless it’s Capcom, I’m not seeing any other publisher crazy enough to put out one single enhanced port out for retail.

    Well, look what at what we have here.
    According to Jeremy Conrad, Thief runs at 1080p 30fps on PS4 and 900p 30fps on XBO. I got the tweet from Darth Brian.
    Rumors indicate that Watch Dogs is 1080p 30fps on PS4 and 900p 30fps on XBO. The Witcher 3 from CDPR is also rumoured to be running at 720p on the XBO and 900p (working hard to keep 1080p) on PS4.
    I’m sure CDPR will get the Witcher 3 to run at 1080p on the PS4.
    But damn man. All these leaks on the same day. At this point, it isn’t even news. The PS4 will always be ahead of the XBO.

    • AdamBoy64

      I find it interesting.

      I didn’t think the gap between specifications for the consoles was -that- big. But it looks like it really is making a noticable difference.

      Good.

      With all the trolling Xbots and Digital Foundry did last gen with the inferior PS3 ports its about time they got a taste of their own medicine

  • PrinceHeir

    please Goichi Suda put the new content of Killer is Dead on consoles!!!

    http://www.allgamesbeta.com/2014/02/killer-is-dead-coming-to-pc-in-may.html

    New Content:

    • New difficulty mode called Nightmare Mode. In this mode, enemies can only be defeated using the following attacks: Adrenaline Burst, Dodge Burst, Headshots, so the gameplay requires far more skill and tactics. Players will not be able to use the Final Judgement finisher (QTE mode) to defeat enemies.

    • Smooth Operator Pack for console will be included and unlocked after Episode 3.

    • Theater Mode – Rewatch cutscenes and get extended background information on characters, helping to unravel the story after your 1st playthrough

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

      Meh. That’s kind of cool, I guess, but I got the Platinum on the Premium Edition a while back, so I don’t have any intention of playing through it again just for Nightmare Mode.

    • bloodiOS

      That better be available for consoles…

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

        I wonder why they didn’t bother adding Nightmare Mode for consoles from the beginning :/

        • bloodiOS

          Hmm… maybe they already had that DLC planned out.

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

            Surely they don’t expect to make THAT many sales on a PC release though, lol. The game sold like shit as it is anyway :p

            It would have been better had they just released it on PC simultaneously with consoles. Eh, whatever… I’ll care about Suda 51 again once Lily comes around.

            • bloodiOS

              I think it’s just a quick port to make some quick bucks.

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

                By releasing it on something that can be pirated with ease? Sure sounds like quick money to me! I bet it will be a DRM release.

                • bloodiOS

                  No idea. But I thought Steam users can be pretty supportive.

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

                    There are also DRM releases on Steam though, making it harder to pirate. Still, I don’t see a game like this doing well on PC, especially since it has pretty much been swept under the rug since the console release. It also doesn’t help with how many people badmouthed it in reviews (another reason it would have had a better chance just releasing with console).

    I’ve been watching tons of ACE Another Century Episode R.

    why can’t Bandai Namco contact From Software to make a new one?!?!

    PS3/PS4, they could add tons of franchises like in Super Robot games.

    i also love how they recreated some of the scenes in their anime versions.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVt3i-3q1EI

    This is probably my favorite scene of Kallen ^^

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D432HULfnaw

    Universal Century and Cosmic Era characters working together!?!

    i also notice how Shinn’s Gundam really has the same exact color palette as Kamille. Gundam Seed really is a homage to the original Gundam series.

    it’s such a shame that Amuro isn’t in its Nu Gundam.

    also no Gundam Wing characters? i read that in the story Wing Zero got destroyed? IMPOSSIBLE!!! Heero doesn’t lose!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKB8QlR-eA0

    Bonta kun is badass!!!

    come on Namco! fund the next game to From Software!!

    you can add in tons of new franchises like Gundam 00, Aquarion Evol, Evangelion, Fafner, Rahxephon, Break Blade, Kakumeiki Valvrave,Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince,Suisei no Gargantia and tons more!

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

      We might see another ACE when the SRW well runs dry, but they’re focusing on that at the moment. We could very well see a new ACE for PS4 at some point though.

          • Budgiecat

            Thats not saying much lol.

            Especially when we still hold the standard to the PS2 games

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

              When you do something right, it doesn’t matter how far ago it was accomplished. Macross on PS2 was still the best one they’ve made and haven’t been able to make one as good, or better, since then *shrugs*

              • Budgiecat

                yeah but that was done by AM2 Sega, and they haven’t worked on a Macross or a mecha game since, so you can’t hold one company’s work to another and expect it to be the same. Different people different ideas, different talent levels, skills and implementations.

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

                  *shrugs*

                  I can hold it however I want. That was the best Macross game, imo, and nobody has made a better one since then, AM2 or not.

                  • Budgiecat

                    Okay?

                    Well obviously no one that has made a Macross game since then was as talented as the AM2 team.

                    So the same lies for A.C.E. series; obviously B.B. Studio is not as talented in the creation of an A.C.E. game as FS was, so to expect the next one to be good is the same as expecting another Macross game not made by AM2 to be as good as Macross PS2, which by history’s records, is unlikely, hence my point.

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

                      Did I say I was expecting the next one to be good? Nope. I’m only optimistic in the fact that the last installment was so terrible, it would practically be impossible to create something worse. Granted, that could very well turn out to be false, but I am not, by any means, EXPECTING a good one.

                      So yeah… You can go shove your point~

                    • Budgiecat

                      There’s a difference between being an optimist with a bad sense of logic and common sense vs a realist with a good sense of logic and common sense.

                      I wasn’t disagreeing with you on the Macross PS2 game. Yes, it is the best Macross game made and they haven’t been able to surpass it and the same goes for the PS2 A.C.E. games. B.B Studio made an inferior sequel despite the move to more advanced hardware so I don’t see them improving matters since they both were different companies trying to improve on something made by 2 different companies.

                      All I’m saying is if they want a good or better Macross game and a good or better A.C.E. they’d be better off going back to the people that made those games great in the first place because obviously the people that tried to emulate them cannot hack it….

                  Here’s a thought. Next time someone says they want a new one of something, don’t ASSUME that it’s because they enjoyed the last one. There’s always the possibility of, oh… I DON’T KNOW… Maybe, just MAYBE, they want a new one because the last one sucked balls?

                  Again, you assumed. Now let’s quit jerking ourselves off here. I’m getting a little sick of it.

    • MrFinalgamer

      the moment we see the release of KH3, and HL 3, and the last guardian get’s it’s first gameplay footage after so many years of absence…is when we will learn about Agent’s cancellation

      • Elvick

        Maybe each game will have a piece of a screenshot?

        • MrFinalgamer

          TBH this game is either cancelled or multiplat ala FFXV. though i tend to think the game is dead since we never say gameplay, not even a teaser!

          • Elvick

            It’s vaporware, but it’s fun to joke.

  • PrinceHeir

    It’s been a long time since i heard or played the Mass Effect series.

    I stop play after the director’s cut(around May or June 2012?). for some reason i was really exhausted and finally finished a great trilogy with questionable choices about why the choose that ending.

    I haven’t played the Leviathan DLC nor the Citadel reunion DLC or any other DLC they’ve put. It’s been more than a year now, but after seeing this video. it made me realize how i missed the series and are now searching on the web on what Mass Effect 4 would be like.

    I even bought all the DLC’s for Mass Effect 2(which i rarely do for a game), but for some reason Mass Effect 3 i didn’t bought any.

    even with the Director’s Cut ending, i do feel like they could have done more than this, especially after 3 huge games and with all the choices you’ve done.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dn6E331D7Yc

    funny as hell! maybe it’s good that i have put a long hiatus on the series and is hungry for the next.

    anyone looking forward on what they can do for the next game?

  • Elvick

    Anyone else having issues with disqus notifications? They appear in the little bubble, but when I click on the buble the new replies aren’t labeled new.

    holy shit Lightning Returns FFXIII Collector’s Edition PS3 is SOLD OUT from the Square Enix Store!!

    http://store.na.square-enix.com/store/sqenixus/DisplayHomePage

    mine already shipped, but it’s still on New Jersey!!!!

    wtf is this taking so long? i know it’s probably the snow, but it already calmed down as far as things are going.

    this reminds me of my Ni No Kuni Wizard’s Edition last year Febuary(Ironic) 2013, since i remember i got it a week before a snow storm came.

    twice a charm eh???

    • GhostNomad

      My Toukiden package has been chillin’ at a FedEx facility in my area (about 20 minutes away by foot) since Thursday night. Weather hasn’t even been all that bad so I wouldn’t assume that to be a factor >.>

      • Elvick

        That sucks. ):

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

      There’s a customs stationed in NJ. If there’s a hold up on imports, customs is usually the cause.

      • PrinceHeir

        now you made me remember my JPN imoprt Evangelion and Steins;Gate calendar wallpaper, which has been sitting on a facility since January 25.

        what the hell are they holding it in the first place?!?!

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

          Maybe they think it’s suspicious, lol. It also depends on the type of shipping you use. I always get mine express, so the process is very quick and they deliver it to me as fast as they can since my games are a top priority after all~

          • PrinceHeir

            i read it’s because of stupid USPS that they hold things due to being outside of the US.

            and it’s only a wallpaper, it’s not even suggestive or anything.

            this has NEVER happened to me before.

            i bought games from playasia and yesasia and they deliver fine(i put standard shipping)

            maybe it was a mistake that i choose USPS 5-7 days? which is WAAAAY overdue now.

            i bought this on JLIST though, my Saya no Uta came fine, but i read it shipped from their San Diego warehouse.

            i guess next time i’ll just choose 2 day shipping, even if it costs that much i don’t care. this kind of waiting is getting ridiculous.

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

              >i read it’s because of stupid USPS that they hold things due to being outside of the US.

              As I said before, customs.

              USPS does seem to hold it for longer than say UPS or FedEx, so I’d go with one of them next time.

              • PrinceHeir

                How long does your get hold(if any?)

                do you need to contact them so that you could get it yourself?

                I don’t think the UPS here or Fed Ex holds things internationally at all.

                I ordered an import of Animal Crossing New Leaf Perfect Guide Book in Japan, and it was supposed to arrive a month, but it came 2 weeks since i ordered it and it was from Fed Ex.

                only USPS does this shit. yeah i’ll certainly go with UPS and Fedex next time.

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

                  Mine is never in customs, no, lol. It skips it altogether when it arrives in North America from Japan. Then again… I guess that’s what happens when you order with the fastest shipping and get products a day after they are released in Japan.

  • GhostNomad

    For whatever reason, every time I try to log into Gematsu from my laptop, I get a login error (something about spamming attempts and submitting a request for the admin to put me on a whitelist).

  • EX+

    Oh yeah.
    Sonic Boom. Well, where do I begin.
    Sonic, Tails and Amy look ok, but Knuckles… my god.
    The gameplay? I’m gonna be honest, some of it reminded me of Sonic 06. Just a little bit.
    But really Sega? Really? Another Wii U exclusive?
    For a company that’s trying to make Sonic relevant again, they really weren’t thinking when they made a 3 part exclusivity deal for a console that had been out for a year with almost no 3rd party support.

    • DarkLegacy

      Man Knuckles looks huge. Btw are you going to be buying it?

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

      Yeah, they’re just pissing their money away putting a game exclusive on a dying (or dead?) console, lol. Bayonetta 2 is going to sell like shit on Wii U, then they’re going to be kicking themselves for making it exclusive and alienating their fanbase rather than making it, at the very least, multiplatform for PS3/PS4/XBOX360/XBOX One.

      Whoever is betting on this horse (Wii U) is an idiot right now. It’s dead last and is going to stay that way. If I were them, I’d ditch all support for it and just stick to the 3DS since that’s successful.

      • Elvick

        Well, Sega is too stupid to fund Bayonetta 2 themselves. I don’t know why, the first sold over a million and reviewed very very well. So there was only going up from there.

        But no… so, that left Nintendo to fund it. Which is a lame fit IMO, but w/e the game looks awesome anyway.

        And the Sonic games are part of their 3 game deal with Nintendo, so there’s Nintendo money involved there as well.

        They aren’t doing them out of the good of their heart. I’d be willing to be that Nintendo got screwed out of the Sonic deal more than Sega.

      • $18114340

        Bayonetta 2 is going to sell like shit on Wii U, then they’re going to be kicking themselves for making it exclusive and alienating their fanbase rather than making it, at the very least, multiplatform for PS3/PS4/XBOX360/XBOX One.

        You’re acting like Platinum had a choice. From what I recall, Nintendo is funding it. And Bayonetta 2 would have sold like shit regardless of what platform it’s on.

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

          >You’re acting like Platinum had a choice

          Ummm… They did have a choice? They didn’t go with PS3 or 360. They CHOSE to go with Wii U.

          >From what I recall, Nintendo is funding it

          It’s Bayonetta 2. I’m sure if they would have just been PATIENT, they could have got someone else to fund it and went a better route, but noooooo… They jumped on the first dick they saw and they’re get getting the shaft without lube.

          >And Bayonetta 2 would have sold like shit regardless of what platform it’s on

          Okay? Well, guess what. Now it’s going to sell even WORSE because it’s on the worst home console in the market.

          Woohoo~!

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

      Soo good!

      The only disappointment so far is the change of cast from the All Star Battle game.

      Aside from Dio and Jotaro, everyone got changed, including Joseph T__T

      http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-12-22/jojo-bizarre-adventure-part-3-anime-cast-confirmed

      Everyone is perfect from the game, Kayoin’s voice is sexy as hell, why the hell would they change that??

      Even though i know Unshou Ishizuka will deliver a phenomenal job as Joseph, i still like Sugita’s voice from the preview of the Part 3 and the ASB game.

      Though i think they should have put Akio Otsuka if Sugita is gonna be replace. just because Old Joseph looks similar to Big Boss XD

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

        Well, as long as they keep Koyasu for Dio, it’s all good, haha.

  • bloodiOS

    So I saw on Neogaf that Tales of Symphonia is 720p@30fps on the PS3. Talk about utterly disappointing… Given how little no improvement on the models and textures, I was expecting it to be operating at 1080p and (or at least) 60fps. The collection having no pre-order bonus really made me regret pre-ordering it. Too bad I used my reward credits on it… cancelling now will mean forfeiting those too…

    • AdamBoy64

      Yeah, they didn’t really put much effort at all into it.

      Pretty disappointing really. You think they would have treated their series a bit better than that.

    • PrinceHeir

      wtf?!?!

      i bought the Collector’s Edition(with all the nendroids) and this is disappointing.

      the game is not even that heavy to be honest. should have at least made it 60FPS.

      i don’t want to cancel it since it’s no longer being sold.

    • Elvick

      Were the originals 60FPS?

      • bloodiOS

        Not sure about Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World but the GameCube version of Tales of Symphonia is. But honestly, if Graces is 60fps, then I think it’s safe to assume that Dawn of the New World is also the same.

        • Elvick

          Shame then. It’d be acceptable if they were originally 30FPS. Since, they played fine originally… but they were double the framerate.

          *sigh*

          There seems to be on other reason than lack of effort. It’s not like it’s a huge facelift or anything. *sigh* If it weren’t for the Collector’s Edition, I’d just cancel and wait for it to drop in price… or not. It’s still Tales. And it always feels like Bamco is looking for a reason to drop it again.

          • bloodiOS

            I believe someone said that it was tri-Crescendo who who handled the porting and not the Tales team so maybe that’s where the problem lies?

        • Pyrofrost

          Are you talking about Graces or Graces F though?

          • bloodiOS

            Didn’t the original Graces operate at 60fps?

            • Pyrofrost

              I don’t know tbh, but I know DotW world wasn’t 60fps…well, if it was 60fps it definitely wasn’t stable. I would honestly prefer a smooth 30fps over an unstable 60fps.

              I can understand the gripe about the half ass job with the models and textures though

              • bloodiOS

                Yeah, a smooth frame rate is always preferable but I would’ve loved it to be a smooth 60fps like Tales of Graces f. Oh well, no use crying over spilled milk.

                • Pyrofrost

                  Yeah, I can’t really say anything about the PS2 version of Symphonia (except that I have read everywhere that it is inferior to the GC version), even with its added content.

                  As far as DotNW, massive dips would mostly take place in battle or if there was a lot going on.

                  • bloodiOS

                    I believe that the PS2 version is capped at 30fps but still dips when things get rough. Let’s hope that the PS3 version is hiccup free…

                    • Pyrofrost

                      We shall see.

    • new_tradition

      I’m not gonna lie, a lot of this graphics and frame rate stuff goes over my head, but should I expect ToS HD to run slower than Xillia?

      • bloodiOS

        Xillia? This collection even runs slower and looks worse than Graces f!

        • new_tradition

          I played some of Graces F, but I can’t remember it feeling slow…

          Don’t know what to say about graphics. I’ve played upscaled PS2 games on my BC PS3 without really going “ew”, so I should be good xD

          • bloodiOS

            Ah, you misunderstood. What I meant is that there isn’t a need to compare the collection to Xillia (a game that was crafted for PS3 since day one) given that it already is inferior to Graces f (which is also more or less another HD-remastered title) in both graphics and performance. I’m not saying that the graphics grossed me out (since it’s pretty much the same as it always was) but that it’s rather disappointing that there weren’t more efforts put into remastering a revered title such as Symphonia. And yeah, Graces f‘s performance is pretty solid.

            • new_tradition

              Ooooooh, I see. Well I haven’t played any Symphonia games, so I can’t compare. Just glad there’s a way for me to play it since I’ve kept hearing what a great game it is.

      Yeah, I tried to sign into my Gematsu account and got this:

      • Ghost Doge

        Exact same thing I’ve been getting. Sucks too since I’d just hit 1000 comments recently!

        Ah well, might be time to start over :D

        • bloodiOS

          Well, it might just be Disqus changing stuffs around and accidentally screwed things up. Telling Sal about it and have him give them a good talk should solve this ;)

          • Ghost Doge

            Already let him know. We had a short conversation on Twitter about it, but I decided to make a new account juuuuuust in case. Not much lost anyway :P

            • bloodiOS

              Too bad that they force you to make a Disqus account to use their system nowadays. I believe back then, you can just sign in using your Twitter account.

              • Ghost Doge

                Well, it gave me the option to link my Twitter account once I’d signed up with Disqus, but that’s about it.

                • bloodiOS

                  Yeah, that’s it. Now you have create a Disqus account and then you can choose to link your Twitter account to it. No longer can you just sign in without making an account with them.

                  • Ghost Doge

                    On the bright side, now I get an email pushed directly to my phone when I get a reply on here, so I can be a bit more organized. Of course, this is assuming that Disqus’ email notifications aren’t as glitchy as their notifications on here. Often times it’d say that I have several replies when I have none, then other times it’d tell me there are no replies while I’m having an ongoing conversation (page refresh included).

                    • bloodiOS

                      Believe me, after their newest revisions, some of the replies took about half an hour to show up on the phone. And much like before, often times, there are quite a few replies that just go straight to the junk box. So, it’s always best to check the notification tab, but even that can be delayed sometimes.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      Good to know! Especially considering that I didn’t hear my phone go off on the last two replies :P

                      Suppose if everything with Disqus was working as intended, that’d be the time to worry.

      • Elvick

    • Gigus

      Here dog, look at this.

      • Ghost Doge

        AH! This message. Alright, just saw it. I’ve been busy most of the day so cut me some slack!

        I like it! Only criticism (and this is extremely minor so don’t fry your circuits yet) is that the text on the bottom could be centered a bit better. The spacing between the top/bottom of the letters and the scroll’s outline don’t seem to be consistent.

        My other bit of advice, go for a colored version. Nothing extremely detailed though, just a few simple colors.

        • Gigus

          WHAT?! Nah jus kidding. Your criticism is more appreciated than no criticism. In fact its way better than not saying anything and then choose someone else’s work that has copyright infringement all over it. I was gonna post it but it might end up making you support that said artist and t-shirt website.

          Anyways, I got a colored one already setup just in case I get denied again. I’ll show it to you and the rest of the gematsuians on the next open forum.

          • Ghost Doge

            I generally only wear plain shirts for the most part aside from a few old ones that my mother got me as gifts back when I was in high school. Yes some of them are worn to hell and a bit tight in the shoulder area but they’re still awesome! I also have the t-shirt that came with the Catherine deluxe edition and I love the hell out of that shirt, so there’s that! Most of the designs I see these days are awful so I’m happy to wear my old shirts until they completely fall apart :P

            Can you submit more than one design at a time? I figure if you submit several, they’ll have a better look at your work and your potential for sales :D

            • Gigus

              Hmm… I’m confused by your history with shirts and what that means for my design XD.

              Anyways I can submit more than one and I have been doing for the past first three shirts I’ve submitted already. Unfortunately, they’ve all been rejected. Thats whats been disappointing me lately.

              But what really made my heart drop was when I saw this shirt. It made me so depressed that a guy got away with doing completely nothing to redesign the emblem and try to make it original. I’m completely shocked that they are still selling the shirt and the fact that SE hasn’t sued their ass yet.

              *sigh* Sorry for ranting. Just really disappointed. You can google the actual emblem for balamb garden and you could already tell the guy just did a cut and paste.

                It means that I don’t buy shirts unless I need them or just really like the designs. I like your designs so I’d buy your shirts :P

                At least you’re not quitting, so I like that. Keep it up! And if there are some different sites you can try, go for it. No point in limiting yourself to one seller.

                Far as the logo, it’s possible that whoever approved it didn’t do much research and isn’t aware of the existing logo, they found it visually appealing so they approved it, or they were aware but figured it would sell well >.>

    Listening to this is like piecing together a NTR story:

      what does NTR mean

  • bloodiOS

    Hmm… say what you want about Rayman Legends on PS4 and XBO, I think these two lazy ports are more like a scam for the uninformed. There is hardly any improvement worth noting outside of having no load time. Uncompressed textures turned out to be making so little differences that you have to grab a screenshot, and look really closely to tell if it’s actually better. I was so looking forward to the PS4 version having 4xMSAA implemented to smooth out the aliasing on some 3D objects but nope! There is no AA whatsoever, just like 7th-gen, which is the biggest bullshit about this version. We’re talking about two consoles that are vastly more powerful than their predecessors, and the difference is so little I’m not sure what the hell the devs were thinking. I mean, yeah, it’s an adorable game and it doesn’t such poor sales but holy shit, at least put more efforts into it…

    • MrFinalgamer

      i thought that everyone knew that Legends was a money grab…

    PS4 purchase justified?

    • bloodiOS

      Not unless the game is running with 4xMSAA.

      • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

        It has Infinityx MoeMoe Anti-Aliasing though.

        • bloodiOS

          Last I checked, the solution wasn’t enough to hide the utterly nauseating, razor-sharp aliased edges.

    • Budgiecat

      Doesn’t look any different from their PS3 stuff….

      • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

        It looks the same really, lol.

    • Ghost Doge

      I love heights, but I love them more when I have a parachute. Climbing down is a bitch and depending on the context of your jump, parachuting can be a fantastic experience :D

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

        It’s funny cause you were the first person I thought of when posting this, haha. For some reason, I thought you’d post when seeing it :p

        • Ghost Doge

          You know me well enough! :P

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

            Only a little bit actually >w<

            I think you have military experience though, so I guess I just related adventure to military and came to this conclusion? I'm not sure, but it seemed like something you would enjoy @w@

            • Ghost Doge

              That’s why I said ‘well enough’ and not ‘too well’ as I initially typed :D

              On that note, you got it mostly right. I’ve received my Parachutist Badge and blood wings, wanted to attend Jumpmaster school so I can be eligible for a Senior Parachutist Badge but that didn’t happen. Needless to say, I loved parachuting. Funny thing is my friend and I talked earlier while walking to her school and she said she wanted to skydive so I joked about becoming an instructor and jumping with her. Now that I’ve put some thought into it (and have received a little extra motivation from that video), I just might have an idea on what I want to do for a while! :P

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

                At least you HAVE an idea. I thought maybe writing was going to work for me, but I didn’t receive a single remark regarding the first volume of my work that I released last month. It was going to be a monthly release, but after seeing that nobody gave it attention at all… I’m not really too motivated to even bother writing any more now.

                • Ghost Doge

                  Maybe you just need to throw it around a bit more. Y’know, promote yourself! It won’t be an easy process but at least you might build a small following that grows over time?

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

                    I started up a Twitter and Facebook page for it, I posted it on Wattpad and Deviantart, I also shared it on here and my personal Facebook page, as well as my Tumblr account. I did everything I could have possibly done to help promote it a month before it was even released.

                    So, I’d consider it a failure since I haven’t received a SINGLE comment.

      Well, if it only has an effect on the US branch, I couldn’t care less. Now, if this means Sega of Japan also lost the trademark, then I’d worry.

      SHENMUE 3 EXCLUSIVE TO PS4 CONFIRMED

  • PrinceHeir

    Okay after some shit i had to go through, i FINALLY have the Lightning Returns FFXIII Collector’s Edition.

    Big as hell, even bigger than my Dead or Alive 5 Limited Edition.

    The only disappointing thing is that the game’s case is in normal edition. why not give us a steelcase one like the other Limited Editions?

    The PS3 version is already sold out, so i’m GLAD i managed to get this.

    This is one hellish process. and it seems i may have to go through it again for Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD and Drag-on Dragoon 3.

    I’m scared, since LRFFXIII got sold out, FFX | FFX-2 HD CE might even sold out fast. And since i ordered both FFX | FFX-2 HD CE and Drakengard 3 CE, they will have to wait till my Drakengard 3 order get’s shipped.

    I just hope, they save my order till May.

    Expect future games like Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3 to have an exclusive CE on their store.

    • DarkLegacy

      Congrats on your Collector’s Edition of LR

      • PrinceHeir

        did you get yours?

        it feels like i’m playing a game of shipping.

        there’s a chance that it may not ship to me so i wasted my time fixing this and ordering it.

        Digital River is the boss of the game. Literally there’s a chance that you may never get your order ever again.

        • DarkLegacy

          Nope. I pre-ordered inFAMOUS: Second Son with my money. I probably will do once I get enough money

    • new_tradition

      I’m strongly considering cancelling my Drakengard CE. It’s just gonna end up too expensive by the time it gets to Canada…

      Buuuuuuuut now that I heard it’s sold out, I don’t wanna lose it, lol. That arrogant sense of having something someone else doesn’t. It’s terrible, but other people have the LR CE I wanted, so fair is fair >3>

      EDIT: And oh god, no! I will rage if potential KH3 and FFXV CEs are SE Store exclusive! D:<

      • PrinceHeir

        wait Drakengard CE is sold out?

        it’s still there as far as i’m checking.

        yeah, though looking Square Enix US right now, it’s definitely gonna be a exclusive store only edition.

        i just wish they hire another company instead.

        what about Amazon?!?!

        • new_tradition

          That’s what I heard (they made a post claiming there was only 500 left and then people said they were out a while after), but it’s good if I’m wrong.

          That even the retail game is store exclusive is the real annoying thing :/

  • PrinceHeir

    Take deep breaths before reading this :P

    http://www.allgamesbeta.com/2014/02/square-enix-registers-trademark-for.html

    It’s obviously gonna be a social game or a mobile game.

    Would be surprised if this were a Movie though!

    • new_tradition

      Saw this a while ago. I personally would like it to either be a Before Crisis remake for a game system (was hoping it would eventually come to the DS like KH Re:Coded) or a new FFVII title to resolve the secret ending of DoC that basically screamed “we’re not done yet!” >_>

      • PrinceHeir

        YES TO ALL!!

        i’m glad someone still remembers Dirge of Cerberus!

        Gack- i mean Gensis is still alive!

        I do remember in an interview that his no longer out to destroy the world, but rather protect it.

        from what??

        • MrFinalgamer

          i have yet to play Dirge of Cerberus (need a new PS2 to do so…) is it any good?

          • PrinceHeir

            It has some interesting mechanics.

            The ability to use magic, shoot and jump at the same time is clever and pretty cool.

            Artstyle is amazing, it’s a sneak peak of what would FFVII look like in a PS2 hardware.

            Badass cutscenes, Vincent’s story is tragic and sad. It’s no wonder he was blaming himself throughout FFVII.

            Tons of references from older games. In fact in Crisis Core you can actually find his coffin in the same place you found in FFVII.

            Wonder why Zack never opened it? XD

            You would need a bit more practice in order to get use to the controls.

            The Game is fairly short once you get most of the intro.

            Once you actually engaged the main enemy, the game finishes up so fast.

            But the boss fights are amazing as hell. and the music!! Once you hear the Gackt song, that’s where things get hype as hell!

            Love the sound design and atmosphere of the game. You’ll definitely be delighted to hear since this is also the same composer of Final Fantasy XIII series which is amazing.

          • DarkLegacy

            It is good. You should buy it, and that’s if you do get a new PS2

            • Elvick

              Wish it were on PSN, or would be put in a remaster.

              Fun game. Though painfully easy.

              • DarkLegacy

                Same. I’d buy it on PSN if it was on there

        • DarkLegacy

          “Gack”

          Actually it’s Gackt, but yeah I know what you mean.

          Edit: *Genesis

    WTF is this shit??

    Seriously Fox attention whore much?

    Now i’m gonna buy this Day 1 just to spit at your face.

    • bloodiOS

      It really doesn’t mean shit. In the video, they said that the gal claimed to be killing many poor chumps way before Dark Souls came out. She just happens to like the game, but of course they just had to bring it up anyway because… VIDEO GAME! I call this all bullshit.

      • Elvick

        So Demon’s Souls made her kill the early ones then.

        :v

        • bloodiOS

          Corpses already piled up way before that xD

          • Elvick

            She’s from the future, traveled to the past and killed everyone because of those games.

            It’s the only explanation that makes sense.

            • bloodiOS

              I wonder if she played Hitman. I mean, they did say that nobody found those missing corpses, right?

    • Anime10121

      Dark Souls OBVIOUSLY has connections to
      her being a Satanist, because you know, Satan had a “dark soul”, so,
      yeah, Dark Souls II is obviously about a game where Satan’s the
      protagonist fighting against Heaven! – Fox logic

      sounds legit :/

      • PrinceHeir

        what about LORDS of Shadow?

        it’s obvious your using the Lord’s name in vein!

    so basically your eligible to win just by pre ordering.

    i do hope i win or someone else here at Gematsu!

    • Elvick

      Not worth ordering from their store. I have it preordered on ebgames (PS3) and amazon (Vita). No thanks.

    • Budgiecat

      looks bad

      • bloodiOS

        Better than the aliased mess that they showed way back then. Ideally, it could’ve been much better, but hey I’m just happy the aliasing is significantly reduced.

        • Budgiecat

          I’m looking at the low poly models, drab washed out looking color palette and flat lighting more

          • bloodiOS

            Like I said, ideally, it could’ve been better. But chill, it’s just a free-to-play title, not even a main entry in the series.

            • Budgiecat

              But it’s not like the main series looks any better…I expect more from a PS4 title regardless if its f2p

              • bloodiOS

                Oh, you’ve seen an entry from the main series on the PS4 then? Look cat, I don’t care what you expect, but F2P is all about profiting with minimal efforts and this is just exactly that.

                • Budgiecat

                  So why does Deep Doodoo Down look like a retail game with uber graphics?

                  • bloodiOS

                    Because bigger company with bigger budget, duh?

                    • Budgiecat

                      Capcom barely has any money these days and D3 is part of BandaiNamco who is much larger than Capcom

                    • bloodiOS

                      Barely has any money? We actually believe that bullshit given how well MonHunt4 is selling?

                    • Budgiecat

                      Thats one game though and they are now taking the 40 million profit it made and investing it into shovelware ioS garbage.
                      Yet they ‘dont have resources’ for a PS4 SF game…

                      I just dont understand your reasoning on this game by it being f2p for minimal purposes when it doesn’t look any different from the prior retail DCCLub games

                    • bloodiOS

                      They’re investing into a market that they know is much more likely to be profitable.

                      And I don’t understand how you can compare this to PS3 games in the first place. Really, it’s not like D3 as a whole worked on this project. It’s probably just a smaller group within it (with a small budget too), and these guys just don’t care about optimizing for the Cell, and just happy to have the game running fine on the PS3 and got a fanbase out of it. They more than likely just threw together a patched-up job for this F2P PS4 for some quick cash grab.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Don’t you think I know that? But as I said, it looks no different from any other D3 game so its not exactly going to impress or attract anyone to get a PS4 for some low effort title free or not. If Sony wants to successfully push the PS4 in Japan, they’re gonna have to try harder than that to appease the Japanese who are now running to handheld games and iOS mostly…

                    • bloodiOS

                      As if D3 gives a rust about this F2P game. They already have another main entry ready for the PS3, in case you forgot. And why should Sony care about this ONE single particular title when even its own developers couldn’t care enough to make it a full retail game?

                    • Budgiecat

                      I dunno…it’s plastered right in plain main view on the JPN PSN for PS4 so…

                    • bloodiOS

                      And? That should make a difference because?

                    • Budgiecat

                      Allright fine you win! This game looks amazing! It makes The Order 1886 look like a 3DO game! I bow down to it’s uber anti aliasing!

                    • bloodiOS

                      Are you serious? Seriously now, the game is just there because it’s one of the few Japanese games that is currently available for the PS4. Sony put it there just because of that, when more titles come out it will be replaced.

                    • Budgiecat

                      okay okay fine just get me a PS4

                    • bloodiOS

    • Ghost Doge

      I downloaded the demo earlier. Didn’t get a chance to play it though and now I’m a bit preoccupied with other games <.<

      Going to try the PS4 demo first thing in the morning though. After an unholy amount of coffee. And a run. And possibly breakfast. Which would be more coffee.

      Heard some pretty good things about it so far though so I'm definitely looking forward to trying it!

      • Elvick

        I’d give the demo a try, but I’m afraid that the demo would be in my library on PS4 forever. And I don’t really want to play it on PS3, though I guess I could get an idea on there of what it’s like…

        I watched a livestream of the demo by psnstores and it looked fun. Though it’s short (the demo).

        • Ghost Doge

          Yeah, the Library rustles my jimmies. My best friend downloaded some NBA bullshit app and it’s still stuck in there >.> Hope they patch in some sorting options that allow you to at least make folders in the Library.

          • Anime10121

            Yep they REALLY need to fix that, when more games start coming for the thing, I can see the library getting crowded VERY fast…

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

      It’s okay. I’ve been playing it, but… I’m a little disappointed that I have to use the analog stick in a 2D game, lol. Also, I wish the checkpoints were better. You get a checkpoint that saves the game every time you get an upgrade or use this machine to refill your health.

      Do you get a checkpoint when you arrive in a new stage though? Nope. That would make sense >_>

      So yeah… I’m going to basically have to complete the last section of the previous stage again because of this.

        Wha… that’s stupid. You’d think you’d get a checkpoint at new stages too. Maybe I’ll wait and see if they do a patch to fix that.

        I mean, there’s difficult and there’s stupid. That’s just stupid.

        Thanks

      Some pretty big disappointment for you today?

      • Gigus

        Pretty much. I also tried to be angry because I saw an art design get approved over mine regardless how much plagiarism is slapped on that other artist’s design.

        I think I’m gonna play GTAV and jump off some cliffs or destroy a few vehicles. XD Hmmmm….. maybe revegeance would be a better anti-depressant XP

  • Ghost Doge

    So my Toukiden package finally arrived after a few days of sitting in the same facility.

    I also had a chance to browse around in my friend’s shop and pick up some other goodies! :D

    • Gigus

      Can I haz dem?

      • Ghost Doge

        Sure!

        For the right price 8]

        • Gigus

          nah, tis have dog stains on’em. (joking)

          • Ghost Doge

            Don’t you worry. I may seem disorganized and messy in general, and that’s pretty much the case with two exceptions: my gear, and my games. They keep me alive and sane respectively :D

            • Gigus

              lulz but you better slow down on dem games yo! By the time you get and finish persona 5, it’ll be 2020 XD

              • Ghost Doge

                I DO WHAT I WANT!

                And it’s okay. I’ve already accepted the fact that my backlog will take me all the way to retirement. Far as games that I’m super hyped for, they’re getting played as soon as I acquire them regardless of my backlog’s wrath!

                • Gigus

                  Just warning you lol. I’ve seen gamers sell brand new games they haven’t had the chance to play due to a huge backlog.

                  I’m still confused to why amazon keeps picking on you XD. Its like they do know you’re a dog and you’ll be loyal to them regardless lol.

                  • Ghost Doge

                    Oh hell no. I stopped selling my games soon as I started regretting selling my games. Case in point, most of my PS2 collection is gone (save for a select few) so I’ve been looking around and building it up again as of recently.

                    At most I’d give a game away to a friend or something, but I sure as hell ain’t trading it in or anything like that. I still have quite a few sealed games, come to think of it >.>

                    Amazon is just a hater.

                    • Gigus

                      As much as I want to have sealed copies I can’t. Games are ment to be played not displayed. I take care of my games anyways. Once I am done with them, I re-seal them.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      I only have sealed copies because I haven’t played them yet. There was a time where I’d open every single game as soon as I bought it just so I can open it and admire the manual/disk art/reverse box art. Now I just leave it alone. No point in opening a bag of chips if I’m not going to eat any of it for another 6 hours! Not to say that my games are going to be less ‘fresh’ if I open them and don’t play them, but you get the idea :D

                    • Gigus

                      I don’t think using a bag of chips for video games isn’t the best analogy XD. Anyways did you see my other message to you (not the danganronpa one)? Guess you didn’t like it either *sigh*

                    • Ghost Doge

                      I know it isn’t perfect which is why I attempted to specify in the last sentence of that post!

                      Far as the other message, can’t say I have O.o What’d I miss?

                      [EDIT] If you happen to see this first, I found and replied to your other message :D

    • Elvick

      Still waiting for Dangwhateverspellingpa LE to arrive. *sigh*

      But I got Toukiden in the mean time, which is an awesome game.

      • Ghost Doge

        Saying that game’s name was an adventure in itself. “Fuck it, Trigger Happy Havoc, the pink one” was pretty much how it ended :P

        I’m planning on getting into Bravely Default and Toukiden soon as I get through Fire Emblem (already on chapter 20, heard there’s only 25 chapters, plus I only want to do one playthrough for the time being, not 100% for the sake of other games). Far as Toukiden, I started the demo but didn’t get more than a couple of hours in. Are there any bonus goodies that transfer over similarly to BD’s demo? Trying to decide if I should complete the demo first before getting into Toukiden. Already got all seven bonuses from the BD demo so that’s been squared away for a while :D

        • Gigus

          Is it really that hard say? lol But you should pitch that title to them though. Sounds way better for the english only speaking folk.

          • Ghost Doge

            Not impossible, but I’ve never heard it pronounced in the past so I’m left with my imagination. I can make a rough guess, but that’s about it!

            Also, relevance :D

            http://i.imgur.com/WUpeQs5.jpg

            • Gigus

              But that’s english, not Japanese XD. English has “unique” syllables XP

              • Ghost Doge

                But I’m reading it in English, and since I’ve never heard it pronounced properly in Japanese, I just take a guess!

        • Elvick

          I heard you get a Tenko mask, but I didn’t get one and I beat the demo. But I left 3 quests because the limit for materials was annoying. So maybe you have to do those too.

          The money carries over, though is limited to 3000. Materials are limited too as I mentioned, but carry over. Equipment level is carried over, also limited (to 5) and Mitama carries over.

          Progress too.

      • icecoffemix

        I cut the title to :

        Dan Gan Ronpa to make it easier :P

        Yeah, Toukiden is awesome, very addicting, just finished the main story the other day.

    • MrFinalgamer

      take good care of the beauty that Nocturne is ='(
      i sold most of my PS One and PS2 collection in the dumb days of yore (i had Persona 2 with me…now it’s over 100 dollars XD)

      • Ghost Doge

        I used to have a black label copy of FFVII until I sold it (dirt cheap too). I’ve done a lot of dumb shit when it came to my game collection, but thankfully I’ve learned my lessons :D

  • bloodiOS

    Aw man… this week’s episode of Buddy Complex really left me hanging…

  • bloodiOS

    • DarkLegacy

      Seems like he’s excited or he has the moves lol

  • bloodiOS

    No AF?! Why? And 2xMSAA, what?! This game better runs solidly at 60fps…

    • icecoffemix

      AF seems to be still a foreign thing for console developers and especially most JP devs. It’s crazy when it’s practically free on GPU like 7850/70 on PS4. MSAA is still and always will be expensive though.

      Hope this change fast.

      • bloodiOS

        I’m starting to think that it’s just more of a Japanese thing. If this was made by Western developers, BAM, 4x(maybe 8x)AF and FXAA without a second thought.

        • Budgiecat

          Since you seem to be such an expert on these things just what exactly is going on in The Order 1886? Why does it look like prerendered FMV?

          • bloodiOS

            Expert? I just know what I know. Anyway, 1886 is special, it’s rocking 4xMSAA, and has a bunch of awesome post-effects together with great detailed character models.

    • EX+

      Speaking of how things run:

      http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/02/20/ps4-port-of-final-fantasy-xiv-has-unlocked-framerate-up-to-60-fps-at-1080p-limited-due-to-heat-issues/

      Looks like they changed FFXIV back to 1080p native@60fps.
      In factm it goes over 60fps sometimes.

      • bloodiOS

        Is Yoshida-san high? Capping the framerate at 60fps on consoles is common sense, given that TVs don’t output more than 60Hz. And what’s exactly is scary about the PS4 when it’s programmed to automatically shut down when the heat level rises above a certain degree. Talk about spreading FUD with bullshit… And it seems the PS4 version is just a port of the DX9 PC version, while PC gamers will get to enjoy that DX11 version later on, huh? Meh…

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          I wouldn’t count out DX11 support for the game coming to PS4.

          As for PS4 and heat issues, I have very little knowledge on it, I don’t have a PS4.

          • DarkLegacy

            But you are getting a PS4, right?

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              I’m slowly saving up for one currently. Money has been very tight for me since the holidays though.

              I’m still likely a few months away from being able to afford one.

              • DarkLegacy

                Good luck getting one. Btw you have PSN? Just asking in case we wanted to add each other lol

                • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                  Sure. I’m Slash789 on PSN.

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

            I wouldn’t either, especially since the infrastructure of the PS4 is similar to PC, so it will be a lot easier for them to enable stuff like this and/or give ports of PS4 games to PC and vice versa.

        • EX+

          Well, I guess they could patch it in. It is a possibility.

          • Guest

            So you think it will happen? That FFXV has a possibility to going on PC…

            • Guest

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16879265024

    It’s $59.99 on Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop. The Vita version is $39.99 at all the above mentioned stores.

    • Budgiecat

      I hope you’re saving enough money for JJBA, SRW Z3 and J-Stars…

      • bloodiOS

        I’m not even gonna bother with those.

        • Budgiecat

          nooooooooooo

  • EX+

    Well, it looks like FF15 being on the PC is a slight possibility.
    If they do decide to make a PC version release a year afterwards the console release. People who had a PS3 and now have or planning to get a PS4 have been waiting the longest for this. Don’t hold back the console release for a port that’ll probably fail.

    • DarkLegacy

      If it was going on PC then I would end up thinking that we will be waiting longer…

    • Budgiecat

      Ugh I hate PC fat elitist nerds

    • Anime10121

      I doubt it, and if it did release on PC, it wouldnt in any English speaking nations. A single player Japanese RPG at a full $60 (lets face it, theres no way in HELL Square would release it for less than that) would not sale well enough in the West for it to be worth the piracy risk.

      • 罪罰

        you’d be surprised.

    • blank059

      The game won’t be delayed for PS4/XBO if they were to make it for PC. Multiplats usually come later to PC which can be a week, a month, several months, a year or years and years later on PC.

    • 罪罰

      If its a good port. it’ll do good.

    • DarkLegacy

      So you think it will happen? That FFXV has a possibility to going on PC?

      • EX+

        Ish. It’s not guaranteed, but it is possible.
        Obviously, it would result in sub-par sales, but whatever.

    Just in time for Gundam Seed Destiny Episode 48 :D

    They uploaded Episode 48 JUST NOW!

    Go watch it!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwMHcXjp1CM

    • PrinceHeir

      My favorite scene is when Mu finally defended the archangel in the same scene from seed and regained his memories :)

      Murrue finally reunites with Mu!

      It made me shed a tear T__T

      So basically only 1 episode left? Please include the extra battle scenes from the special edition movies! and Final Plus The Chosen Future too!

      Gundam Seed Destiny may have a lot of problems in mid way, but the seeing the battle scenes and conflict, they definitely had a lot of ideas they wanted to tackle.

      I just wish the battle scenes are a bit longer like in Gundam 00. There’s too much talking here which i don’t mind, but they need to balance these two things out.

      I do wonder if people would enjoy the series if Shinn’s personality was more in other games like Super Robot Wars or ACE Another Century.

      Three main characters from UC and CE universe join forces :)

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D432HULfnaw

      Each one is aligned to their respective characters: Amuro Ray=Kira Yamato, Char Aznable=Athrun Zala, Kamille Bidan=Shinn Asuka.

      I could see why CE took a lot of notes from the original Gundam. even the designs are freaking similar or if not the same.

      Hi Nu Gundam=Strike Freedom, Sazabi Gundam=Infinite Justice,
      Zeta Gundam=Destiny Gundam,
