    I want indie games launch their games at retail.

    • Zackasaur

      I would love that as well, but it requires a lot of money and typically necessitates a publisher.

  • TheBlackRabbit

    awesome a new open forum. Do any of you guys watch log horizon? if so are you gonna watch today’s episode?

  • Zackasaur

    Is anyone here interested in teaming up in FFXIV after the PS4 launch? I’ll be playing with my girlfriend and perhaps with another friend as well.

    • Ghost Doge

      I’m playing the Beta and so far I really like it, so I’d volunteer but if you need someone with a reliable schedule, I’m not your man. My attendance is spotty enough as it is and might get even more so over the next few months.

      • Zackasaur

        When you get the game, message me to ask which server to join! It’s just nice to build up an in-server friends list.

        • Ghost Doge

          Sorry for the late reply. Had a long day :D

          That said, you got it. I might already have you on PSN but I can’t recall at this exact moment >.>

    • DarthBrian

      I would but can’t afford the monthly fee. I’m broke. :(

    • Elvick

      Perhaps.

      Ohoho

      Well the retailers got their share of reveals, our own turn would be at E3, GDC, Gamescom and TGS

      • 罪罰

        Too far away, we need juice!

        • shogunknight

          I think GDC is the closest, this march i think.

          Edit: 17th to 21st March, I doubt anything would be shown but hey, one can only wish

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

            The spacing of the events are whack.

    • DesmaX

      Oh boy, even more advanced fish AI!

      But, seriously, if it’s another MW I’ll be disappointed. This year it’s supossed to be the Treyarch one

      • 罪罰

        Then I guess we’ll wait another year for Black Ops 3. I totally fine with that. It has potential now. Feels goofy being excited for a COD but Blops2 was fun.

  • orzorzorz

    i really wish that GE2 online patch would come out, but at the same time i haven’t played it in months

    in other news, Samurai Flamenco’s recent episode was a trip

    • Ghost Doge

      I’ve been meaning to watch more of that show. Only saw the first episode and it was amusing enough but then I got distracted with all kinds of other crap D:

    • TheExile285

      Online patch comes put next month! ^_^

  • TheExile285

    Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc is so good. Just finished chapter 4 and holy crap! *_*

    Haven’t been this addicted to game since I played P4G.

    • orzorzorz

      if you haven’t been completely spoiled, you’ll love the last trial

      • TheExile285

        Already been spoiled on some stuff unfortunately ;_;

        Thankfully they were just images so I don’t exactly know the context. I am trying to complete the game ASAP so I dont get spoiled anymore.

    • http://Gematsu.com Vayne

      It by chapter? So, this game is just a Solatorobo.

    • Pyrofrost

      I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying it. I have my copy on the shelf, I haven’t decided whether or not I should wait until near the release of the second.

      When you complete it, can you let me know if the story closes, or if it kinda drops you off with a cliffhanger and leaves you hanging.

      • Wolf Star

        Why don’t you play?? lol I finished the game. It’s amazing. :3

        • Pyrofrost

          I don’t like being dropped off on cliffhangers and having to wait months to continue the story.

          I was also involved with another game at the time of my purchase. While I sometimes do stop a game that I have already started, I try to avoid doing that at all cost.

      • orzorzorz

        the self-contained story of the school gets resolved, but the major plot leaves on a cliffhanger. but, SDR2 leaves off on a HUGE cliffhanger.

        • Pyrofrost

          I see; but I was told DR2 closes the story; so it doesn’t?

          • orzorzorz

            SDR2 brings closure to some of the events that weren’t fully resolved from the first game, but also raises a lot more questions too

            • Pyrofrost

              Ah, I see what you mean then.

              Someone mentioned something like that in the comments section of the article about a possible DR3 on Siliconera.

              Thank you for the information.

        • Wolf Star

          SDR2 does?? no wonder there’s a teaser for D3.

    • Wolf Star

      Dude I have finished the game, 1000000/10 for me. I haven’t seen intense story like this before. Keep playing you will be in shock. I’m not kidding, it’s an amazing game.

      • DarkLegacy

        You know what? I ain’t doing some of my revision for my exams. I will play the game

        • Wolf Star

          lool really?

          • DarkLegacy

            Yep :D

            • Wolf Star

              Hahha awesome :D but is your paper good?? :P if it is then alright dude :) enjoy the game :D why don’t you start playing now?? XD

              • DarkLegacy

                Oh I think so. Have been revising a lot until Monday. And I’m already playing it now

                • Wolf Star

                  Play it now!! :D dude you will be amazed how the game is :3 when I started playing it, and kept playing it, I got hooked into it. Grab your Ps vita and play it now :3

                  • DarkLegacy

                    I am

                    • Wolf Star

                      Yaay :D

    • Kayseur

      I completed the second chapter last night (I’m pretty slow), it was even better than the first. I got spoiled for the 3rd one (my very own fault though, I looked it up, eh) but I’m pretty eager to see the rest.
      This game’s really well-made.

    • Anime10121

      Visual Novel aint it?

      • TheExile285

        It is but there is a lot of player interaction. Its not just advancing text boxes. Don’t look for gameplay online or you’ll get spoiled.

        I’ll respond to you again about the gameplay in more detail when I get home.

        • Seasqwaa

          I didn’t think I’d enjoy it as much as I am! My friends were into the anime, but they generally have…. bad taste (imo), so I was a little reluctant, but the game really is great! For one though, I suggest never ever looking online for information, because a lot of the fun comes from the mystery. And I’ve ruined a few of those.

        • Anime10121

          Cool cuz interest is slowly rising. I hate those text only VN’s…

          • TheExile285

            Until DR, I hadn’t had any good experiences with VNs. Tried VLR because I heard good things about it but the story couldn’t grab me and I hate puzzles. Tried an eroge and even that bored me.

            Decided to take a risk with DR because I liked the art and the premise sounded interesting. Glad I did because it really paid off.

            Like i said, don’t look up anything about this game except maybe professional reviews and the info NISA provided on their website. I looked up some gameplay before release and got spoiled on some stuff just from YT thumbnails. I also got spoiled from an inconsiderate poster on SE so try not to look at any articles about it either.

            • Anime10121

              Thanks for the info, still think I’ll wait on a price drop, as I’ve had some REALLY bad times trying to get into VNs and I’ve already got too many games to play at the moment, but I will give it a chance when the price drops a bit.

  • DarkLegacy

    20 days until Infamous: Second Son is released. Anyone excited?

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Kinda. Still need a PS4 though.

      • DarkLegacy

        I’d save up a lot of money to buy one

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

          I have the money but it is not available.

          • Stryker_X20

            You bet :). I already completed the CE pre-order.

          • DarthBrian

            My friend, with my help, finally found a PS4. Unfortunately he also wants a camera and he can’t find any of those anywhere. I guess they’re selling better than they expected.

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

              mmh

    • Anime10121

      Not really, not a big fan of Infamous, but I may get it later anyway…

    • DarthBrian

      ME! I’m excited!

      • DarkLegacy

        Same here!

    • Bryce Blalex Douglas

      Extremely excited. This game comes out right before my spring break so this and Dark Souls 2 are all I will be playing that week.

      • DarkLegacy

        Same. I’ll keep playing it until I see some new games being released

    • Elvick

      Yup. Super excited. Love inFamous. I hope the platinum isn’t impossible or full of b/s. I found the first game unfair with the derpy shards, but 2 fixed that. I want all the plats. ALL THE PLATS. (in inFamous…)

      • DarkLegacy

        Ikr. Loved the gameplay in Second Son. Glad I pre ordered it :)

  • Gustavo Rosario

    Does anyone know that song that played in episode 20 of Kill la Kill in the first half of the episode? It was by a dude and it was in English. I really liked it but i can’t find the name anywhere and as usual Shazam is useless when it comes to anything foreign

  • z_merquise

    Oh cool! I’m so excited for South Park: The Stick of Truth! Just few more days.

    I’m currently playing Last of Us. I have to say, it’s pretty good. It quite look good too.

    For the Vita, it’s the 2nd DLC for Muramasa. I really like how the farmer dood (Gonbe) plays and I found the ending (1st ending) pretty nice and happy.

    • Anime10121

      If South Park had released any other month but this one, I’d be all over it! But they just HAD to release it this month :(

  • http://Gematsu.com Vayne

    Someone knows this developer named TOM CREATE?

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Nope but I don’t know many.

    • DarkLegacy

      No

      • http://Gematsu.com Vayne

        Created a game for PS2 called Kidou Senshi Gundam Seed Destiny: Generation of CE.

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

    So, Shadowrun Returns: Dragonfall came out a few days ago and I’ve been enjoying that. I think Shadowrun Returns got off to a better start, but Dragonfall will probably end up being better overall by the time I finish. I’m not even sure how many fans of these games we have around here, but I figured I’d post my playlist anyway.

    Unlike my PS3 videos uploaded in 720p quality, these are being uploaded in 1080p.

    http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwny41v5iRDSkwUeGwZNOG1S_uTlGIW37

    • Skerj

      It’s on my radar as a huge Shadowrun fan and I loved Returns. However I’m trying to plow through Thief before Stick of Truth so I might not get to this one until sometime in April.

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

        Well, it definitely does Shadowrun justice. Also, it’s only $15, so it’s quite the steal, imo.

        • Skerj

          Yeah at 15 bucks it’s a no brainer for the amount of time I’ll put into it. I spent 15 on Strider and didn’t feel ripped off.

    • DarthBrian

      I still have to finish the main campaign. The lack of save-anywhere was driving me nuts. So now that that’s been added to the new build, I can do that now. And then Dragonfall.

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

        Yeah, people were really frustrated with the autosave only option for Dead Man’s Switch. Personally, I didn’t mind it so much since the breaks were pretty frequent and it helped with recording gameplay too.

        Still, it’s nice to be able to save at any point now.

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

      Looks like there won’t be a complete playthrough of this since I accidentally deleted one of the RAW files among the 10+ that I had to encode earlier, soooo… There’s going to be a part missing (at least 20 minutes worth of footage/story). Laaaaaaaaame.

      EDIT: Well, it’s not a total loss at least. I just found out that I can watch the DVD again at any time, so all I’ll have to do is explain what happened to the part in one of the descriptions. I’ll still be missing dialogue between characters, but it’s better than nothing, I guess.

    • McPoo

      I still need to finish returns. I got it on my phone, I was hoping they’d add in S-pen support at some point, as it’s a shame to have it there but not be able to use it. Really enjoyed what I played though, will probably have to restart it as it’s been a while.

      I wish FASA Studio were still around to make another FPS, the first one is absolutely fantastic. Doesn’t even need the Shadowrun name, dunno why they stuck that on there in the first place really.

    • Elvick

      Haven’t even started the main game. :

      Not sure why I backed it, but hey. I don’t regret it.

  • DarthBrian

    I have been playing a ton of Lightning Returns the last couple of weeks. I don’t know what people’s problem is with this game. If it’s because they’re sick of the XIII characters or Lightning in particular, then they’re doing this game a huge disservice.

    The whole attitude towards this series has been horrendous from the start and the developers have done nothing but change each successive game in the series to address those concerns. Let’s discuss:

    The main complaints I heard was that FFXIII was too linear and had no HD towns. So what did they do in XIII-2? The game was a lot less linear and introduced the time travel mechanic so you could pretty much tackle the quests in any order you wanted whenever you wanted. It also had HD towns. So then what did people complain about?

    The story made no sense? Wrong. They just weren’t paying attention. The story made perfect sense if you wanted to understand it.

    The ending sucked? I disagree. I was disappointed that there was a cliffhanger but I assumed that meant it would be addressed in the next game, and here we have a next game. So that’s a useless complaint.

    The other thing they did in XIII-2 was revamp the combat system to give you more options in battle and to make combat faster even. FFXIII had, I thought, one of the best combat systems in the series and then they improved upon it. And how did people react to that? They ignored it and just focused on how much they disliked the story. As if the story is the main reason you play Final Fantasy games. Now the best ones do have great stories. Like FFVII and FFVI. But some FFs that are beloved have terrible stories like FFIV and FFV, but people still love those games because of the gameplay systems and a couple of the characters. So why does XIII-2 get such a bad rap? I honestly have no idea.

    And now what have they done with Lightning Returns? They have made possibly the most non-linear game in the franchise’s existence with a combat system that is completely different from XIII and XIII-2 yet, once again, is brilliant and has a lot of depth to it. And you’re only controlling one character. It’s amazing.

    Also, the story, so far, (I have only done two of the main quests so far) is great. Lots of feels, especially if one enjoyed the first two games and really understood the story and the characters.

    The Majora’s Mask time mechanic has been overblown by the press as too hard or too unforgiving, but it’s not. If they pay attention to what the game is telling them and how the time mechanic works, the clock is no issue. But these game journalists don’t have a lot of time to really dig into a game and figure it out. They need to get reviews done on a timely basis and that, I believe, is why they come to the conclusions that they do.

    I really think people need to give these games a chance. I really enjoyed XIII a lot. Some friends I talk to said I just forced myself to like it. That is not true. I platinum’d that game. That required me to farm these giant turtles for 50+ hours for rare drops. I would NOT have done that if I wasn’t enjoying myself.

    So please, give the game a shot. If you started it and stopped for one reason or another, I really do think you should give it another chance. I think these games are vastly underrated and deserve more recognition.

    Thanks for reading that long-ass post. :)

    • 罪罰

      Raitingu Returns gameplay is great.

    • Invisbin

      I completely agree. Not trying this series is an insult. I myself have finished 2 of the main quests and I’m loving every bit of it. The interactions lightning has with people really brings joy to me.

    • Anime10121

      I agree wholeheartedly, the main reason people rag on XIII and its sequels is because many didnt care for the first game, so they felt it was “a wasted” to spend all those years making the first game (when in fact it wasnt the game itself they spent all that time on, it was the engine) when they could have been making their “glorious FFVII remake” that they promised them at the ps3’s unveiling (which they never in fact did promise anything, it was a tech demo, and “journalists” and fans were the ones who took it out of context).

      While I myself didnt really care that much for XIII, BOTH sequels blew that game out of the water in story, mythology, and most importantly GAMEPLAY! Yet, people constantly rag on the games instead of even trying to give them a chance. Even something done tongue in cheek like the infamous Red Chocobo rap from XIII-2 gets blown out of proportion as being the end of “good” FF music, when in the context of the game itself, makes perfect sense, and its actually not even a bad song to ride around to on said chocobo…

      All that being said, LR FFXIII DOES have its problems, like the main story boiling down to what essentially ends up being 5 main quests (and I’m excluding Sazh’s quest because its not really a “quest” at all) that only take up maybe a fourth or so of the game’s length, MASSIVE reuses of NPC copies for sidequest characters with different adornments to distinguish them, and an ost that’s basically just XIII and XIII-2’s with maybe 5 new songs worth listening to. But the game itself, is actually fun, and the time clock essentially is no issue, if you spam Chronostasis every chance you get (i finished all 5 main stories in 4 days…)! The ending is also a bit… lets just say “out there”, but you kinda figure it’ll head in that direction anyway with everything thats happened…

      But yeah, I enjoyed the series for what its worth, may not be my favorite FF saga (though XIII-2 actually IS one of my favorite FFs), but I’ve played FAR worse, and thoroughly enjoyed my time through it.

      • DarthBrian

        “MASSIVE reuses of NPC copies for sidequest characters with different adornments to distinguish them”

        I’m guessing that’s due to the game being multiplatform and one of those platforms being able to store less data on the disc as it’s a DVD instead of a Blu-Ray. *shrug*

        • Anime10121

          XIII-2 didn’t have it nearly as bad though… I chalk it up to a much faster development time and the whole decline in sales thing. But even with those two excuses, they made the NPC reuses far too obvious… Not a game breaker or anything to me, since I knew it wouldn’t have the budget of the previous two entries, but still kinda jarring.

          • DarthBrian

            At least there’s some especially cute adornments in this one though. :p

            • Anime10121

              Agreed, but considering I never found Light “cute”, it didn’t go too well for me…

              • DarthBrian

                The Moogle Schema DLC comes with an adorable Moogle hat. Soooooooooooooo cute. <3

                And Lightning looks especially cute with the Aerith Schema I got with the Collector's Edition. I gave her a heart adornment for her hair at the moment. Might change it to the Moogle hat at some point. :p

    • Pyrofrost

      I will admit, while I am ready for XIII to come to a close, and I am glad it finally is. I for one, liked Lighting from the beginning and thoroughly enjoyed XIII.

      For me, it was one of the best FF experiences since FFVI. So yeah, fuck the internet hate machine and the bandwagon jumpers.

      With all that said, I am glad SE is finally moving on.

      • Anime10121

        I can agree with being ready for the XIII series to come to a close, but on the subject of Light herself? We differ there, as I honestly couldnt stand Lightning and mostly played for everyone else’s story…

        • Pyrofrost

          I can respect your preference on that man. Every character type and personality isn’t for everyone; just like every person you come in contact with isn’t going to be the kind of person you like.

    • lancer205

      Nice post, my only main complaint with Lightning Returns is that I really wanted more content. Adding more locations and main quests would’ve been great.

      • Anime10121

        Yep, the main quests ended far too quickly and 20-30 hours of tight side quest scheduling wasn’t all that great :/

    • bloodiOS

      Very nice~~ I hope Square Enix remasters the whole trilogy for PS4 and release it before Final Fantasy XV comes out. It would give people a chance to re-experience the trilogy’s epic adventure at a higher level of fidelity and better prepare them for Final Fantasy XV.

      • DarthBrian

        If they remastered it on PS4 I would want to play them all over again. O_O

      • 罪罰

        Let them move on for fuck sakes, the game are fine, everybody agrees. Now we get a new game. Thank You.

        • seyEliveD

          Sometimes I wish I could upvote a comment ten times …

      • Anime10121

        No, and that’s coming from someone who liked the games. Remaster a trilogy right after the conclusion of said trilogy before releasing the next game? Just no, unless you were joking…

        • bloodiOS

          And here I was thinking that folks would be able to spot all the dishonesty and ingenuity oozing out of that post.

          • Anime10121

            Eh, figured as much, but even knowing you Bloodios, its still the internet, and people say weird things sometimes…

    • Six

      I bailed part-way into Final Fantasy XIII and I haven’t liked JRPGs since. I just couldn’t force myself anymore. I have never been more disappointed by a game.

      I tried the LR demo just for shits and giggles, and while the gameplay was good, I had no idea what the hell was going on.

      • DarthBrian

        Well, of course you had no idea what was going on. You never finished the first two games. Spoilers, man. :p

        • Six

          Well, I can only imagine what kind of shenanigans took place for Lightning to end up as Jesus or whatever she is supposed to be.

          • DarthBrian

            It all makes perfect sense.

          • Anime10121

            Yeah, I still don’t like how they literally made Lightning a god and all, but whatevs…

            • DarthBrian

              She’s always been a literal goddess. <3 <3 <3

                  Never.

                  Serah is awesome though.

    • Revorse

      Although I loved the first two games I have to be honest there are so many things that I hate about Lightning Returns. The ending too. But even with the things I hate I still enjoyed my time with the game and will be going back to it when I play the whole XIII series straight through.

    • Reda1234

      I really liked Final Fantasy 13 but my two complaints were that it was a bit too linear at some parts even though when it opened at that HUGE field “Archlyte Steppe”, It was the amazing and that it lacked some of the “magic”(I don’t even know if this complaint is warranted or real) I felt with previous FF Games.

      I still haven’t played XIII-2 because reviews were really discouraging me from buying it. What do you people think. Is it as reviewers described it?

      • DarthBrian

        Not in my opinion, no. If you liked the first one, you’ll like second one. They got rid of the linearity and improved the combat system.

      i have yet to play the rest of the series (own CE of XIII-2, and getting XIII-3 when price goes down). anyway, i honestly didn’t like some aspects of XIII. the story i think was good, but holy crap somethings they just throw them at you expecting you know half of this stuff, and this time, there’s no character that’s oblivious to it. the characters are honestly so damn bland. even, lightning! the damn protagonist/god of this series is just so 1 dimensional. the weird thing with XIII is that i felt that they just worked to develop 2 characters mostly which were Sazh and Hope (and hope’s story is the same as Ken’s from P3, except Ken has the balls to attempt it, unlike Hope), and then the rest were just developed half way.
      anything involving the story aside, i did like the battle system a lot. when you go down to it it just revolves around changing your roles when needed, but this does add tension, and even sweaty-palm gameplay, which is shocking for a turn based RPG.
      the only things that i can say about XIII-2 is that there’s no way to defend that cliffhanger. this series is called FINAL fantasy for a reason! it’s just idiotic to put a cliffhanger on a series that’s supposed to start anew in each instalment! my only comments on XIII-3 is that the ending (or secret ending, i don’t know which is it) is so laughably bad, that i can’t believe it’s not fan fiction

    • Elvick

      I don’t really talk about XIII-2 or Lightning Returns in terms of their own quality. Though I am sick of hearing about FFXIII stuff in general, because I *hate* FFXIII.

      I have XIII-2 and will try it, if I can ever manage to beat the first game. And I’ll give the last game a try too eventually.

    • seyEliveD

      Did you know FFXIII-3 is the only FF I haven’t played and the only FF since FFV that I did not buy at release. I’m a huge FF fan who actually enjoyed FFXIII (except the battle system – by far the worst in the franchise); however, I can’t even get myself to *think* about purchasing or playing FFXIII-3. That in itself should be a warning to SE that something is fucked up with their series (I may start making sacrifices to ensure FFXV is back on par).

  • Stryker_X20

    What do you guys think of that dastardly game; Deception IV: Blood Ties, which it launches on March 25th (alongside Xtreme Legends: DW8)? Torturing enemies can never be more fun :D.

    • Elvick

      Looks interesting. It’s releasing in a busy time for me so I can’t get it right away though.

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

    It’s not surprising that they went with this picture for the boxart, but I’m sure if someone wasn’t familiar with the franchise… They may think this is a VN or something instead of a fighting game, lol. I can only imagine what guys would say if they saw it on the shelves in NA though.

        • Anime10121

          :(

          Might have had something to do with being digital only…I WAS gonna buy the game, but I’m still kinda adverse to building a library digitally. If its something I REALLY want, I’ll cave, but AH doesnt really fit that category…

          I may just import the Euro version which I’ve seen on Amazon for about 30 bucks…

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

            Well, it wasn’t the fact it was digital only. It was the fact that it was digital only and PSN was hacked when it was released, so the game was unavailable for a month or so. By that point, hardly anybody even cared about it.

    • 罪罰

      Man, If I saw this not knowing what it is I would be like “Fuck yeah, cheerleading game? I’ll buy it” Then I put it on my PS3 and be like “Holy crap it’s an awesome fighting game” Thank you Arc System.

      I saw the same exact banner when they announce the arcade version.

        Yeah. That’s why I said I wasn’t surprised when they picked this for the boxart :p

    • Kayseur

      For once, I actually would have liked a different cover, something with a better “fighting spirit”. I totally agree that I’d think of it as a VN if I ever come across this picture not knowing the game.
      It’s still nice (as I like the artist’s style), but it’s a pretty… odd choice.

      Still going to get it anyway.

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

        Yes, it is definitely an odd choice, haha. I’m going to pre-order it as soon as CDJapan puts it up. I just hope I get something better than a microfiber cloth as a first print bonus this time.

        Well, even that served a purpose after a couple of years being sealed up. I finally used it to clean some vinyl records I bought, but yeah… I’d much rather have something more useful or something I can display :3

      ><

    • new_tradition

      The 32-bit Windows prototype works well enough on my PC, so I feel better about the game now. Kind of wanna go with the Paladin pledge, not sure yet…

      I’m just not used to using my keyboard to control a game (the letter “z” being the equivalent of the Playstation’s X button seems strange to me, heh). I remember reading how a 360 controller is compatible with PC games. Maybe worth investing in..? Though they mention a joystick control specifically, so better to get that…

      Then again, this might be the only PC game I play, and my money is currently finite, so I don’t need anything extra >.>

      • bloodiOS

        Well, they allow you to customize the control scheme so I assigned “Action” to Left Click and “Cancel” to Right Click. It’s so much easier to use now.

        • new_tradition

          So, like, I didn’t know you could assign controls to your mouse >3>

          I feel so out of my element here, lol

            • new_tradition

              Wait, so HOW do you assign mouse clicks? I try to change the action to left mouse click, but I click and it doesn’t accept it..?

              • bloodiOS

                First, you highlight the “Action” row, then double click on the “Secondary” column. A dialogue box will pop up, so just left-click at it when it does. Done.

                • new_tradition

                  Oh, I didn’t actually click on the pop-up window. Changed it now. Thank you ^^

He started out working with Avex for Super Eurobeat and made a couple of tracks that were used in Initial D, but he did some work for TOHO EUROBEAT as well and I really liked his work there~

  • Reda1234

    Hi, Gematsu

    I have something to discuss. Do you think that watching reviews detracts from enjoying a game? I know most of us are insanely excited about Persona 5 but I am hesitant to watch even a single trailer. Before God of War 3 released, I watched every trailer and a couple of reviews when it was released and I felt that it ruined the game for me.

    • MrFinalgamer

      not really, persona trailers rarely reveal important plot stuff (there’s so much filler with SL, they have so much stuff to choose from)

    • Nightcore34

      Nope, I like to experience it, whether I’ve seen a review or not.

    • $18114340

      Yes, I do believe it does detract from enjoying a game, because then you enter a game with certain impressions of it based on someone else’s opinion. Reviews can be informative and insightful but at the same time they sometimes do take away from some of the magic of experiencing a game for the first time. Other times, when the hype train is speeding along, a review might actually make the game seem better than it actually is once you’ve played it.

    • Elvick

      I don’t watch reviews.

      I watch trailers and don’t have an issue with being excited while playing games. It’s rare for me to see ‘too much’.

      But it does happen. That’s why I’m glad inFamous: Second Son hasn’t shown off more than two abilities. Leaves us with something to find out. And The Last of Us media was perfect too. Didn’t spoil anything.

  • Reda1234

    Dangan Ronpa vs Zero Escape:VLR. To those who played both, which did you like more?

    • TheExile285

      I like DR a lot more than what I played of VRL. Granted, I only played 3-4 hours of VRL and I just hit the 20 hour mark in DR.

      Its also worth mentioning that I hate puzzles. I was trying to play VLR for the story but it never really grabbed me.

    • Seasqwaa

      VLR has a little bit of a problem capturing the same feel that 999 did in my opinion. All the skipping around in VLR just disconnected the whole experience (even though it was tied in). DR is good, as it does its own thing, and has some nice turns. VLR I’d say is generally more filled with interesting references from time to time, and the dialogue could be downright hilarious. DR works upon generic characters, on purpose, while keeping its shroud of mystery. It’s really hard to say which I liked more, but nonetheless, I did enjoy all of them. Granted, I’m only at chapter 2-3 in DR. I also love puzzles! bwahaha.

  • Tac-Mex

    I am bothered about Sony’s Santa Monica new IP being cancelled, we’ll get more boring God of War games :/

    • bloodiOS

      Bothered? For all we know, it could be another The Last Guardian. It probably has been stuck in development hell for a long time but never materialized into anything meaningful and ultimately keeps on wasting resources after each passing day.

      • MrFinalgamer

        i would at least like to know that SM was making something other than God of War, seriously, what the hell can they do now, except for a new MC and new mythology to massacre

        • bloodiOS

          We shall see, but honestly, they’ve been working on the new IP since GOW3 and still didn’t have anything to show prior to its cancellation, so I personally wouldn’t expect much from it.

          • MrFinalgamer

            they were going to show off a teaser at E3 or something like that…

            • bloodiOS

              That’s still a long time since then. Either way, there’s nothing can be done now. We can always hope that they are still working on other projects and the new GOW will just be one of them.

    • Kevadu

      Um, they didn’t say a new IP was canceled. All they said was that an unannounced game was canceled.

      For all we the canceled game *was* another God of War game. That would actually make sense, seeing how the last God of War game bombed.

    • Ghost Doge

      I spent entirely too much time playing that game back on the PS2. Started playing it on PS3 again recently just for old times’ sake and got tossed around in the very beginning :P

      Far as favorite moments…. Too damn many. The only part that I hated was Ashley’s screaming. I also wish the weapon selection was slightly better but considering that I generally used the basic handgun/shotgun/rifle regardless of what i had access to, suppose it’s not a very valid complaint :D

      • Izzeltrioum

        It’s not your imagination. I played through every re/re-release of RE4 (GC, PS2, Wii, PS3) and, in the PS3 ver. , enemies deal 2x damage even on normal difficulty.

        • Ghost Doge

          To be fair it happens with every game that I was really good at but haven’t played in a while. I know exactly what I’m supposed to do, but I’m rusty and end up getting my head chopped off while trying to be cool and time the swings. Obviously this particular example is RE4-related but I fall for the stupidest things in general :D

    • Budgiecat

      Still kinda annoyed they didnt bother with Move support and online Mercenaries…

      • PrinceHeir

        Yeah was hoping they implement it as well.

        Though RE5 didn’t played well even with a move, since the game’s movement and design are different compared to RE4(heck chris is much slower now that i think about it)

        • Budgiecat

          RE5’s was a weak afterthought though. RE4 would have been easier to flow into because of the Wii version

    Any new or old features you want Sony to put back on PS4?

    MP3 Playback or FLAC

    yes please!! Namco loves to add custom music track in their games like Tekken Tag 2, Gundam Extreme etc.

    So i would definitely love to have the feature back again!

    Also ability to sort games via alphabetically anywhere(Donwload list for example) Game Patches/DLC folder so i could see what DLCs and Patches i have instead of just downloading it unknowingly that i already have the content.

    Gameplay records, i don’t know why NIntendo only has this on their 3DS and Wii U(assuming) and not other companies like Sony and MS.

    I want to see how many hours i played in each of my games, total play time, average play time, playtime per day, week, heck you could put all of this on your PSN profile so people may know more about your gaming and how much time you play,

    Also put a “favorite game” tag list on your PSN, like when people see your PSN Profile Tag, They should be able to tell what your favorite game is.

    I don’t mind using the trophy information as an indicator of your favorite game.

    Video playback: MKV and MP4(is it there already?) please!!

    Finally one of my favorite features of PS3 that’s missing in PS4 is custom wallpapers and user icons.

    seriously Sony, why the hell did you removed it? put it back now!

    • Elvick

      Wii had Gameplay records too, but you had to go to the Nintendo Channel or something to see it. You could rate games that way as well.

      • PrinceHeir

        Yeah, shame it’s only online.

        And now that Wii service is gone, i could no longer access it :(

    I’ve been watching the anime of Devil Survivor 2 and got to episode 6. I’m enjoying the show so far. Sure, it’s not amazing, but the pacing is good and a lot happens per episode. Hibiki is still likeable. His friends wish to assist him regardless of dangers. Yamato and Ronaldo are douches yet that is acknowledged and caused Hibiki to think what is better for him. Still, it will probably escalate like crazy in the next ones.

    Maybe it’s because this is the opposite of Valvrave where I felt like
    punching some characters while guys like Lelf got away with shooting a
    girl in the head and using his allies as meat shields. So I’m a bit
    biased.

  • Kevadu

    I know there are a lot of fans of Japanese games here, so I can’t be the only one playing KanColle, can it? I’m completely addicted, it’s all I play these days…

    Or is the fact that it’s a browser game enough to drive “real gamers” away? ;)

    • PrinceHeir

      What’s the game all about? All i know is it’s tanks and it’s a card game?

      Is it similar to the Valkyria Chronicles browser game?

      Can’t wait for the anime though!!

      • Kevadu

        Ships, not tanks ;)

        I know some places call it a card game but I actually don’t think that’s an accurate description at all. Sure there’s a big collecting aspect (it’s in the name) and the status screens for the ship-girls sort of look like cards (though the in-game graphics do not), but there aren’t any mechanics I associate with card games. There are no decks, shuffling, drawing hands, etc. If it wasn’t a browser game and there wasn’t this big browser-games-are-often-card-games bias I wonder if that label would ever have been attached to it…

        As for what the game actually is, I’d say it’s part resource management simulation and part RPG with a big emphasis on collecting stuff. Of course the main thing you collect are the ship girls themselves. The ‘characters’ of the game are all anthropomorphized versions of actual WW2 warships. It sounds weirder than it is at first glance…really, the game mechanics are pretty abstract and they don’t ever try to explain what that actually means. Are they ships or are they girls? It’s not important ;)

        Besides the ship girls themselves there’s all kinds of equipment to collect. Guns, torpedoes, planes, radars, anti-sub equipment, etc. The main meat of the game are the sorties, but you can also send fleets out for player vs. player ‘practice’ matches and expeditions to collect resources. Ship girls gain XP and level up, but also have to be resupplied and possibly repaired when they get back. The main resources in the game are fuel, ammo, steel, and bauxite (mainly used for aircraft), all of which recover at a fixed rate in real time, though you can boost that by doing expeditions and completing missions (quests). There are daily and weekly quests so you never run out of things to do.

        Much of the game proceeds in real time whether you’re logged in or not. I already mentioned the resource thing, but also repairing ships, building new ships, expeditions, and more all have timers based on the passage of real time. It’s a game that’s made for multitasking. I tend to leave it open all day long but that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m busy doing something in game all the time.

        One interesting and fairly unique aspect of the game is that it has permadeath. You can get very attached to your ship girls after investing so much time into them but if they get sunk during a sortie that’s it. And since it’s a browser game and all this stuff is stored on the server side there’s no reloading from a save game when that happens. That said, they won’t actually get sunk under normal circumstances. Sorties involve going through large maps with multiple encounter nodes and you’re given the opportunity to head back to port after each encounter. Ships only ever get sunk if they’re already damaged at the start of an encounter, meaning you decided to press on with damaged ships. So why would you ever do that? Well, some maps–especially late game and event maps–can be extremely challenging and there’s no small amount of luck involved. To clear them you have to defeat the boss at the boss node and you’ll often take damage before you get there. If you have one damaged ship but the rest of your fleet is in good shape it may seem worth it to take a calculated risk. But it’s ultimately your choice whether or not to take that gamble.

        (Note: I’ve a very conservative player and have never lost a ship, so…)

        Also, the game was clearly made by WW2 otakus and is positively dripping with little nods to historical details that I’ve found quite interesting. Why is Mutsu’s luck so low? Because the actual battleship Mutsu was destroyed at port when her ammunition exploded in what was believed to be sabotage by a disgruntled crew member. Why does the otherwise unremarkable destroyer Yuudachi has such a powerful kai-2 form? It’s an ode to her exceptional performance during the battle of Guadalcanal that earned her the nickname the Nightmare of Solomon. I could go on and on, there’s tons of stuff like that in the game. I spend a lot of my downtime between sorties reading Wikipedia so I actually get this stuff, because I was no expert when I started playing ;)

        So it may be a free-to-play browser game (though it’s definitely not pay-to-win), but it’s actually has some pretty cool mechanics and a very interesting setting. There’s a reason it’s been taking Japan by storm.

        And wow that became a long post…

    So anyone hype for the Spring Anime 2014 lineup? :D

    Note: NOT FINAL Lineup for now

    http://i7.minus.com/iwBU0arPwNMWj.png

    Of course we all know what’s the most anticipated anime in all of the lineup!

    JoJo Stardust Crusaders!!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NO-MNFMisq8

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NXgHW_XBsc

    Knights of Sidonia looks amazing as well(from the creator of Biomega; similar to Gantz)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZU1UDBomdE

    Others like Mushishi Zoku Shou, Broken Blade TV version, Atelier Escha & Logy, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V(please be as dark as 5D’s and Duel Monsters!)

    Others like La Corda D’Oro Blu Sky, Majin Bone, Gokukoku no Byrnhidlr, Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei,, Soredemo Sekai wa Utuskushii, Captain Earth, Fuun Ishin Dai Shogun are all interesting ^^

    • Six

      I had no idea that Mekaku City Actors was based off of Vocaloid songs, and some of my all-time favorites at that.

      I assumed I’d be done with anime again after Kill la Kill, but I’ll have to give that one a look.

    • MrFinalgamer

      i mostly rely on what people watch here to decide what new anime i should see TBH…

    • Arcana Gear

      So many anime, so little time.

    • Kevadu

      If Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is even half as good as the novels then it will be the anime of the year, easily.

    • Ghost Doge

      HOLD THE PHONE.

      Blade and Soul anime? I’m in! I need something to fill the void in my soul until that game comes to NA.

    The PS4 needs a game like Titanfall or the Last of Us. Sequels are great but there’s not much impact

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Why does it “need” that?

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

        New blockbuster IP’s are what breathes life into a console, these indie games won’t be enough

        Rehash titles feel like devs are playing it safe which is good for them bad for us

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

          “new” blockbuster IPs? I guess they can help, but… Honestly, we’ve mostly just been carrying the torch of old franchises from one gen to the next in order to keep them alive (see: Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Metal Gear Solid, Halo, Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, etc.).

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

            Those are fine but Lily Bergamo is one title I’m hoping blows the roof off people’s expectations

            Tbh I’m not sure what to expect from Sudah

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

              It will be alright and some may even think it’s amazing, but it will sell just as poorly as the rest of Suda51’s games have. A shame too since some of them are actually pretty good.

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

                I’m not sure what it is but there’s a reason why his games don’t sell well. I played No More Heroes, fun but meh, didn’t bother with Killer is Dead cause it looked meh

                Things about this games look meh but I’m hoping Lily Bergamo isn’t but dam I want some new awesome Ip’s from Japan especially

                I haven’t said holy shit to a game in awhile and that’s a problem

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

          Well it seems to be selling just fine without it. I mean I still can’t find one and I’ve been looking on and off since launch.

        • Six

          Indie games are going to be very important to both new consoles. You never know what could be the next Minecraft or DayZ.

          I mean, the most talked about game so far this year has been Flappy Bird.

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

            Flappy* But it isn’t the most talked about by me. That would be Persona… :/ Persona persona persona! *foams at mouth*

            • Six

              I have no idea why I typed Flabby. It must be past my bedtime. :/

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

                Because the game was so mediocre and lame and simple? Because of the idiotic reason for removing the game?

                • Six

                  And it made $50k a day in ad revenue. One guy made a glorified flash game with ripped-off assets and it pulled in that kind of money.

                  I’d say it’s impressive, but mobile game development is like playing the lottery.

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

    • PrinceHeir

      Destiny :P

      Even though it’s also on the Xbox platofrms, i feel like the developers are pushing it more towards the PS consoles as the ideal choice of the game.

      Heck i remember Sony gave them a floor show on this Destiny event or something?

      • shogunknight

        Yeah, that Destination Playstation event had some people talking about it too

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

        Ya forgot about that

      • Six

        Destiny is going to be massive. I don’t doubt for a second that it’ll be the new Call of Duty it terms of popularity, and I’d argue that it’s more important to the PS4’s success than anything Sony themselves could muster.

    • Elvick

      Sequels are better system sellers IMO.

      • 罪罰

        They are it’s a fact. Everybody bought a 360 for halo 3 and a ps3 for mgs4

          • MrFinalgamer

            eh…i…i didn’t like the stuff added to Golden TBH (except the Adachi SL, one of the best SL ever!). it made Persona 4 feel less like SMT light to…fucked up scooby doo episode

                well Marie was okay (though the fan service was so unnecessary…), but i didn’t like her social link that much, and the whole dungeon at the end is just…FUCK THAT THING!

                  Fan service? What fan service?

                  • MrFinalgamer

                    the whole damn bath scene when you beat the dungeon in february (seriously was that necessary…at all?)

                      Mmmmn I guess I purged it from memory as I am like the number one person against needless scenes like that.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      weird, i would think you would remember considering there’s a side boob shot of Marie, and steam covering the lady parts of all female characters

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

                      That is exactly why I purged it.

          • PrinceHeir

            nah, I always refer games/anime/manga to their original name.

            and Avatar makes sense since the characters, themes revolves around the concept of Avatar.

            Devil Saga doesn’t make any sense since there’s barely any devils here(only monsters and God’s)

  • shogunknight

    You know, i was looking at titanfalls minimum pc requirements

    OS: Windows Vista SP2 64-bit / Windows 7 SP1 64-bit / Windows 8 64-bit

    CPU: AMD Athlon X2 2.8GHz / Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz

    RAM: At least 4 GB

    HARD DRIVE: At least 50 GB of free space

    VIDEO: AMD Radeon HD 4770 with 512MB RAM or better / Nvidia GeForce 8800GT with 512MB RAM or better

    DirectX: DirectX 11

    INPUT: Keyboard and mouse, Microsoft Gamepad

    ONLINE CONNECTION REQUIREMENTS: 512kbps down and 384kbps up or faster Internet connection

    I just remembered; where is the 360 footage? Its coming out two weeks after the simultaneous pc/x1 release, but we havent seen 360 gameplay footage. Based on these specs, i think its possible that the 360 version may look just as good and probably be 720p 60fps too, just sayin

    • Six

      Microsoft doesn’t want people to know about the 360 version. They want people to buy $500 consoles to play it.

      • shogunknight

        Yeah, they are basically using March as X1s relaunch with updates, heaphones, fixes, party updates. But it may not seem fair if people saw 360s version and looks very good. Truth be told, the game was actually meant for PC and 360 in the first place, MS and EA made a deal to put it on X1 later on

        • Six

          Actually, it was originally supposed to be on the three platforms it is now, plus the Playstation consoles after timed exclusivity ran out.

          Microsoft payed (probably a lot) to keep the game from Playstation.

          • MrFinalgamer

            funny thing is that we’ll probably have the sequel in 2-3 years, and it’ll be for PlayStation too, unless MS is willing to pay more than what they paid for the first game

          • shogunknight

            Yup they did, which is why they cant afford to make a deal worth probably hundreds of millions go to waste or worse get beaten by infamous this march, they did price drops, bundled free titanfall, im pretty sure they may do something next week extra if they notice its not going too well. Marchs npd would be interesting

            • Six

              March’s NPD is going to be a bloodbath, and fanboys on both sides will be sure to make this hobby just a little more embarrassing to be a part of.

              • shogunknight

                I will get it on PC, but not now. Sincerely i want to see how EA and respawn handles this game in a few months. It would be disappointing to see the games total sales on X1 not make the 500k mark or more but i know there would be a lot of PC gamers on this title

                • Six

                  I think it would sell leagues better if EA would suck it up and put the game on Steam.

                  Being Origin exclusive is going to turn off a LOT of people.

                  • shogunknight

                    Nah, they wouldnt. Right now, battlefield 4, titanfall are probably the only titles that wold justify any ones use of origin, they wont want to lose that opportunity

              • Pekola

                • shogunknight

                  Well, the “i told you so” moments are usually the best parts before it gets derailed into the usual console war. Lets not forget that MGS is also coming out March, Dark Souls 2…damn, would be a great month

                • Six

                  Yeah, but unless you have a vetted interest in consoles or AAA games, you really don’t have much to get worked up about.

                  Everyone will be screaming about inFamous and Titanfall, and all I’ll want is numbers for Project Diva f and BlazBlue. :P

            • MrFinalgamer

              i can easily see TF outselling InFamous, specially because TF has had a lot more advertisement than Infamous.

              • shogunknight

                Very true, but im pretty sure thats not MS problem, its moving selling X1s WITH the titanfall that is the main issue. Can you see titanfall bundles outselling PS4 bundles this march? still possible but quite shaky since PS4s demand is still quite high with less stock

                • MrFinalgamer

                  i think the Infamous bundle would have a very good chance on outselling the TF one…if the price was better. seriously $570 for that bundle is just too much, granted it comes with a bunch of stuff, but still! just make one with the damn game for $400-450…

                  • shogunknight

                    Damn, thats really much. $170 extra. Whats in the bundle?

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      InFamous (obviously), another controller, and PSN+ (not sure if 1 year). and yes this was a bundle that was done last minute
                      Europe is getting a proper bundle for 490 euros (don’t know if it’s a better bundle, but still)

                    • shogunknight

                      Yeah, the one i saw (gamestop) seems like a last minute pack in. If the Plus subscription and the extra controller are removed, it would be about $460. I ust hope those people ordering it get the same exclusive items that european bundles get

    • MrFinalgamer

      kinda like how there’s still no footage for last gen Watch Dogs. we’ll probably never hear about the 360 version until that version is out (and that’s a maybe)

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        lol That game got ditched.

      • shogunknight

        Watchdogs i kinda understand since its supposed to be next gen and pc, but titanfall 360 version is coming out 2 weeks after X1/PC and no single 360 footage, why the silent treatment for a version that has about 80 million users

        • MrFinalgamer

          i think that the 360 version is handled by another company, so maybe it’ll end up a shitty version, kinda like the Jak collection on vita

          • shogunknight

            Nah, not very likely. Try to convince 360 users to get X1 titanfall edition is ok, but alienate 360 users and force them to get the next gen version, they end up buying on pc

            Edit: the specs are quite low to even see the game as being shitty on 360, this would be an intentional parity to force people to buy the next gen version

        • Elvick

          Because if they talked about it, people would then remember it’s not an Xbox One exclusive.

          • shogunknight

            Titanfalls hype level is so high that we tend to forget its on other platforms. When titanfall comes out whats the next big thing for MS? Halo and Gears, but the only title being hyped after titanfall is Halo. Well, we will see how this year goes

                Question; why would you want the company that just wasted an entire generation on the three XIII games going anywhere NEAR FFVII?

                As a FFVII fan myself, a remake is the LAST thing I want from Square Enix until they prove themselves capable of actually understanding Final Fantasy again.

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

                  ^ that would imply they understood Final Fantasy when making VII.

                  Hmm…okay, to be literal, I just said it because that’s the running joke for years (FFVII REMAKE!?). Not because I literally want them to do it.

                  But let’s assume that were the case. I am an adult (or trying to xD) something like a game that I’m supposed to derive enjoyment from not being how I want it, won’t kill me.

                  It would make me slightly upset and I would criticize it’s short-comings. But beyond gaming, there is life. It’s not really the end of the world.

                  Final Fantasy isn’t some pinnacle of great story-telling either. It’s serviceable (which I’ll probably get flacked for but alas). It isn’t otherworldly in regards to game-play either. It’s good.

                  All that said, the complete package did always come out as something special. As a staple that a lot of people could enjoy because it appeals to a large group of people.

                  But not all fantasies are made alike or understood by everyone. Which is where I’d disagree with you about Square being capable or not.

                  Let me be clear, Nomura and Toriyama directing storyboards is a wild, crazy ride (filled with Matrioshkas, Time travel that often makes you scratch your head, heart stuff and things which often make no sense or you can tell are ass-pulls and not intricately woven into the plot).

                  But I do think they are very much capable of telling compelling stories. Kingdom Hearts endings never fail to make me cry.

                  Friendship and Sacrifice are portrayed so strongly. And that’s something I won’t soon forget.

                  I felt really bad for Vanille, because it must be horrible having to lie and lie and know you caused so much trouble even when you tried your best. She knew that, but she was stuck.

                  However, she never stopped hoping.

                  And I was inspired by Lightning and Serah who upon knowing things went to hell, didn’t give up—instead they held out hope.

                  Then we have Alyssa, a girl who was also trapped by circumstance and the inevitability of death.

                  Maybe you don’t like the recent Final Fantasy iterations, but that’s not to say they’re not liked or cannot be analyzed in depth.

                  I took a lot out of the recent Final Fantasy games. And okay, I’ll concede they’re not for everyone. Fair game.

                  But they’re also not some monstrosity that deserve to be expunged from the series.

  • Elvick

    Beat Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Still an awesome game.

    I overall like TressFX on the hair, but damn sometimes it looks GOOFY as hell. But, the standard hair looked goofy all the time. So it was a nice improvement. :P

    I got used to Lara’s newish look pretty quick. I liked all the new effects they added, like swinging pickaxe and arrows.

    Great game. Missed the stupid dialog trophy like I did on PS3 though. xP

    Finished with 94% completion! :3

  • PrinceHeir

    Any upcoming 3DS or Vita games that needs to be on the lookout?

    All i know is Persona Q, Danaganronpa 2, and that’s it.

    Compared to last year where we have SMTIV, Project X Zone, Soul Hackers, Bravely Default(depending where you are)

    Seems this year it’s more focus on the new consoles huh??

    • almostautumn

      Pretty much. Neglecting Japanese games, there’s really not that much for either, but some—
      FFX/X2 remaster for Vita on the 18th
      Conception 2 for Vita/3DS in April
      Demon Gaze for Vita in April
      And then Mind=0 in May for Vita.

      Hopefully there’s some more stuff announced in the Summer for Vita.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        And 3DS… :/ Honestly it has less coming than Vita right now.

      • PrinceHeir

        oh Demon Gaze, Conception II and Mind 0, but yeah this was released in Japan last year.

        Final Fantasy X | X-2 I’m getting on PS3 :D

        Was hoping newly announced games.

        Hopefully TGS will spice things up ^^

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

          Or E3…? Maybe…? No…?

    • Wolf Star

      Disgea 4 on Ps vita that’s one.. It’s coming out this summer. Hatsune Miku project diva F (comes out next week on Ps vita via PSN), Hyperdimention Neptunia PP is coming in 2014 for Ps Vita. I can’t think of anything else as of right now.

      • PrinceHeir

        Does Project Diva 2 comes out this year in Japan or has it already been released?

        Neptunia PP yeah that’s great one.

        But mainly i’m talking about newly announced games that haven’t been released in both Japan and US.

        • Wolf Star

          Project Diva F 2nd comes out March 27,2014 in Japan. Also yeah I can’t wait to get Neptunia PP :D it’s going to be awesome. Ohh ok, well Final Fantasy XV is one of them xD haha actually it’s on Ps4 and X1.

  • z_merquise

    I sure some here download games in Steam, I just wanted to know if
    anyone uses PS3 controller? I read that there’s a downloadable driver
    for that.

    I’m planning to buy a Steam card to get Ikaruga and I want to use my PS3 controller to play it.

    • Pekola

      I think there’s Motionjoy. Google that up, it might work for you.

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

        Motioninjoy actually :p

        • http://www.psthc.fr ExTrooperBrenTurner

          Thanks, man.

    • $18114340

      It may or may not work. Ikaruga’s Steam port is kind of finicky with gamepad support, just letting you know now. It seems to only recognize 360 controllers so once you download PS3 drivers if it doesn’t emulate 360 capability you might have to download something for that too.

      If you want me to, I can hook up my DS3 and see if I can get it to work first.

      EDIT: Nevermind, Motioninjoy emulates 360 pad functionality without another program’s help.

  • shogunknight

    Still waiting for your new character reveal for USF4 capcom -_- . You have shown the skill videos of hugo, elena and poison. So i guess this coming week rolento would be shown, so it means we should get the 5th character by the next week. Kinda tired now, im too sure i would be disappointed at whoever the character is, a lot of people would be. The reaction most people will have is “so we had 6 months silence for THIS character??”
    KI is also in my keen eye too, whats taking fulgores release so long? And after fulgores release, i guess thats it. Or maybe we will wait for KI: update announcement in E3 giving more characters -__-

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

      Pretty sure they said the reveal would be at Final Round, which should be in a couple of weeks, iirc.

      • shogunknight

        Yeah, just cant help but think i may be disappointed. Some people say its one of M.Bisons dolls, Ono on twitter (early this year i think) said only 4 people that guessed on twitter were right

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

          One of his dolls? You mean like Juli or Juni?

          • shogunknight

            Yeah, but not those two. I watched this vid recently, but i cant remember who this doll is. Based on the art, she must be from the SF:Alpha times

  • PrinceHeir

    Just finished Ouran KouKou Host Club and wow!!

    I really enjoyed the series!! even though i delayed the series a month or so since i first watched, the last few episode really got me hook!!

    Still the manga has a lot of material that can be animated, I wish for a second season!!! There’s so much they can cover like Tamaki’s mother and what happened to her, and who was the one that finally managed to confess to Haruhi and got accepted in the end.

    I’m tempted to buy the whole manga box set from right stuff.

    http://www.rightstuf.com/1-800-338-6827/catalogmgr/zSdzzHxbk3BJNqMj0L/browse/item/95707/4/0/0

    I would give this an 8/10 due to the fillers dragging things down, but with the last few episodes, I’m now giving this series an 9/10!!!

    Tamaki X Haruhi Forever!!!!

    We need more Ouran KouKou Host Club!!!!!!!

    Next stop, gonna finish Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou then will start a new anime series. Been observing like Aquarion, Saiunkoku Monogatari, or even all the Sailor Moon series :D

      It’s Square Enix. They show everyone way to early and never talk about it. (When they feel like it) Except for lightning.

      • Six

        And mobile games.

        Man, I’m so glad I have zero interest in Square Enix these days. There is nothing they can do to rile me up.

        Wait.

          True haha I bearly remember that KH 2.5 is coming in 2014. oh man… at least E3 2014 we might see FFXV right?? maybe not. hmm at least I’m looking forward to Xillia 2 the most and Danganrompa 2, and some other games besides SE. I’ll forget about XV eventually.

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

            I doubt we’ll see FFXV.

            • Wolf Star

                    I would care more about FFXHD but they jacked over my Vita version. >_> And FFXIV can disappear. I don’t like fee’d mmos.

                      I don’t see the difference between Vita ver and PS3 (except for graphics) but it’s still the same game. What they did to mess up FFX on Ps vita? Also lol I just want XV xD

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

                      In the US they made it Physical/Digital in retail.

                    • Wolf Star

                      is that supposed to be good?? haha yeah I know. US gets retail for FFX while X-2 is download only, but it’s free.

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

                      It is free only if you get the code with the physical game. I don’t like digital so it is just urgh. I mean they get physical for both in Japan, and a sexy box with it.

                    • Wolf Star

                      what about EU?? Is it the same as US?? Or different? Also I tought a lot of people hated X-2 lol (I never played FFX or X-2)

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

                      I think it is the same as US. I don’t know for sure, though. So don’t quote me on that. And well yah they did, but it is the principle.

                    • Wolf Star

                      Ok and that would make sense since it’s an HD collection. why can’t you get X-2 as a download? It will be quick and painless. Yeah I know that you hate digital download but we don’t have any other choice :/ plus your still getting a physical copy and it comes with X-2 for free.

                      I’m bummed they didn’t give us FFX-2 as a retail title too, but still buying it. At least one of them is in a box.

                      Though, FFX-2’s inclusion ruins the boxart.

                      The Japanese Boxart for each game on Vita was sex. I mean, how hawt are these? Ugg…

                      They honestly should’ve just used this, rather than making it pre-order exclusive for the PS3 version.

      Well, I honestly never expected to hear anything from it until E3…

      Considering when they announced it at D3 they said work was BARELY started on it, and that Nomura was still waiting the day of D3 to see if he could even get the announcement trailer approved to even show later that day… yeah, I’m not expecting a release until late summer/fall for Japan and a December-February release (if we’re lucky) for the west.

      I know they promised a worldwide 2014 release for everybody, but lets be serious, this IS Square Enix we’re talking about…

    My latest Vita game (refresh for the pic).

    Also, anyone here play bullet-hell shmups? I just recently got Ikaruga for the PC (via Steam) and it’s so good. I’m going to try and train myself for this since I haven’t really seriously played a bullet-hell shmup before.

    • Arcana Gear

      I tried some bullet hell games, too confuse for me. Headaches and game over in a flash.

      EDIT: regarding danganronpa, i never thought that this series would become so popular, i remember when this was completely niche of the niche, with a slow translation of the psp version. Then the anime came.

      • z_merquise

        I guess the anime did boost the awareness for the game. Then the Vita version came in and that helped NIS to localized the game.

        Shmups is actually a genre that I wanted to like because of the fast-paced shooting and explosions but it’s just that the genre is too hardcore that I felt intimidated instead.

        I just read so many people praise Ikaruga for it’s visuals, music and gamepay and it made me interested in the game too. I’m just trying to give the genre a shot with Ikaruga this time.

        • $18114340

          Shoot-em-ups are indeed a difficult genre to break into because of the immense pressure that you have to somehow play very skillfully from the outset, which is of course impossible. I prefer to look at it this way — shmups, like any other skill-based genre, such as fighting games, etc. require commitment. This isn’t supposed to be intimidating, but rather it’s a reminder to stick to the games that you like and you will naturally get better at them as you play more.

          For starters to the genre I’d recommend stuff like Gradius V, Shikigami no Shiro II/III and maybe DoDonPachi or Battle Garegga. Those games are designed such that even beginners can get pretty far (maybe like halfway through) the game without continues and they’re also basic enough that there’s a relatively low barrier to entry and a friendlier learning curve. The original DoDonPachi in particular is practically quintessential for bullet-hell games and it’s a good introduction because it isn’t too crazy or complex in terms of system mechanics but it also has now-standard danmaku patterns that are good to start training with.

          I haven’t tried Mega yet, but will consider it for future use.

          Also i have a gold account here so it’s convenient for me to upload multiple files above 250MB at the same time.

          You can always wait and download one by one or you can go gold for at least 12$ for a gold membership in one month or so.

    Hello, Open-Forum #85. I just got done catching up on #84. 2000+ comments! That’s awesome!

    I remember Open Forum #1. I remember when we barely had 100 comments each week in the OF. This growth is an accomplishment that we all share. I’ve said many times in the past, building a good community requires a team effort.

    I think everyone here should take a moment and look at how far the open forum has come. I hoped back when I suggest it to Sal, that it would have an overall positive effect on Gematsu. (Thanks Sal!)

    I think it’s done that and more. Good Job! Everyone should give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.

    I want to give a special thanks to our hardcore regulars that post often, you know who you are. All of you are key members of our community. Thanks for generating great discussions, and pointing others in the right direction. Please! Continue doing so! After all, a community always continues to grow, the job is never simply “done.” (This applies to everyone.)

    Moving on. (This is going to get lengthy!)

    Before anyone starts to think or ask. This is not some kind of farewell post from me. No way! I’ve just been quite busy the last few months and I wanted to share some of my thoughts with you, I suppose I wanted to reflect on things as well.

    With the remainder of this post, I’m going to try and be informative. I’ll do my best to answer questions some of you might have. I also realized today that I don’t do “this” enough.

    I don’t answer enough questions in my opinion. I feel like I’ve been somewhat behind lately with giving status updates as well. Anyways, here we go.

    1. Open Forum

    Once again. Open Forum # 84 had over 2000 comments! A new record for the OF. Awesome!

    2. About Gariya

    I was forced into banning Gariya last week or so. It’s not something I like to do, banning people. Unfortunately, it’s not very hard to figure out ways to bypass the banning system Disqus implements. As some of you might recall, this is not the first time something like this has happened.

    If Gariya is actually reading this. I’d like to reiterate one of my comments to you from the other day. (How about you sit back and take all of this in? Instead of trying to come back with each ban just to troll and stuff. You know what your proving to everyone? That you should have been banned, and should continue to be. Which, really just makes me shake my head in disbelief. I said this in a post to you once before. I know you are capable of not being a troll, or posting spam/flame/troll like “dudebro” comments in every article. To continue this type of childish behavior sadness me.)

    For the record – We will continue to ban you or anyone else that does this. If you happen to be reading this and wonder why Gariya was banned. It wan’t over one simple post, or a few bad comments. This was something i warned and pleaded with Gariya about for months. I do my best to find a solution that doesn’t result in a ban. Most of you know this.

    If you need a refresh on our guidelines – http://gematsu.com/commenting-guidelines/

    (We only ask that everyone respects them before posting. We don’t heavily enforce the guidelines. With that said, trying to push things, or take advantage of that kindness is not cool.)

    3. About comment removal

    I’ve had some people ask me about this lately. When a comments is removed, it either clashes heavily with the guidelines, or is part of a flame war/troll discussion. Typically, all of those replies are removed. I know that everyone is human, it’s a natural thing to get upset and find yourself in a flame war or posting with trolls. We frown upon that stuff, and decided a few months back we would remove it all.

    Now. Disqus has a flag system, where users can flag comments that might be offensive. It also has some kind of auto built in system. This is the primary reason behind seemingly innocent comments vanishing. I’ve been meaning to post about this to clear up the confusion.

    When this happens, the comments are moved to a section with other spam and flagged comments. I do my best to navigate this section and restore all the comments that should not have been deleted. I’m only human, and I can’t always catch them all. I apologize. Feel free to reply to one of my comments, or contact me if you feel like this has happened to one of your comments!

    4. Contests/Giveaways.

    I’m sure some of you have been wondering. What happened to the contests? What about the open-forum giveaways?

    Well, this all falls on me. I was funding all of the above out of my own pocket 95% of the time. The thing is, my cash flow has been spread thin the last few months due to real life.

    I had to help family out with medical related issues. I had to help, and still am helping a buddy who more or less lost everything in life. I continue to help him get back up on his feet in any way I can.

    I also seem to run into real life problems every week now. For example… I’ve been sickly the last month or so. I had to spend money on meds for myself. Both my dog and cat got sick last month. I had to spend like $800+ on them to keep them alive and healthy. Just stuff like that, stuff you can’t really plan for.

    I’ve kinda been dealing with stuff like this since a month before the launch of the PS4 in North America. I had to cancel my pre-order because my family needed that support from me. Ever since then. it’s just one thing after another.

    Anyways. Let’s move past that because things are looking up! I’m feeling better and I’m slowly putting back some more money again. Which, like I just explained, is something I haven’t been able to do since last year.

    Things are looking up for me. The end of 2013 and start of 2014 has been a very mixed bag for me. I think I’m past the rough patch.

    This means I should be able to revive contests and giveaways in the somewhat near future. It might start off small. I gave away some steam keys for games in OF #84. Stuff like that. I’m going to do my best to build back up and get things rolling again.

    I really enjoy giving back to the community, you all help make Gematsu great. I enjoy doing it, and because I do, I’m looking forward to getting myself back into a position to do so!

    (Let’s wrap this up!)

    5. Why the long post? Huh? This is a long post? Have you read some of my other comments? loljk. I’ve had lots of people ask about my status. What is Zero up to? etc.

    I still read all of the comments. I’m still the silent guardian watching over things from the shadows. I like to escape the darkness and take part in things as much as I can though. I want to post, discuss, and laugh with all of you here. I don’t always have the time. I often times catch up on comments and have to watch a movie, play a game, or do something else for a while. I hope you understand. =)

    Thanks for reading all of this. I appreciate it. I always say that better things are coming down the road. Please be excited! (LOLSE) I’m always serious though. My goal is to improve the experience here at Gematsu. I’m always striving to make things better. Please, continue to support us!

    Last but not least. I said above that I would answer any questions. I meant it! If I didn’t answer something with my wall of text above. Post a reply to this comment. I will get back to you asap! I promise!

    (Longest featured comments ever! xD)

    • z_merquise

      I’m about to sleep (already 2AM here) so I haven’t read the whole thing.

      But yeah, I think having an Open Forum here is really a neat idea. I just hope that there is a way it can be more noticeable because once news starting to appear again starting Monday, few people get to post here since not everyone will bother to click on the next pages just to find the current forum.

      I remember you guys had your own account system. It wasn’t until the site started to use Disqus was then I started to check and post here.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Click the tabs towards the top. It should say Community it will switch the bar thing to three links one of them being a list of all the open forums. Hope that helps.

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          Yep. =)

          Like I said in my reply though. I think an easier to see button or something might be a good idea.

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

            Yah… I dunno I mean this isn’t my site, and my site is kind of wonky… I think I might have to ditch my user panel idea, which makes me sad face. Stupid Javascript being client-side and all that. I never have issue finding the OF in any case. Though convenience is always good.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        I’ve mentioned to Sal before that I think we should have some kind of Open Forum button or something on the main page.

        Where it would take you to the open forum tag section. Although, with the last OF getting 2000+ comments, we have more people posting after it gets moved to page 2 and beyond than ever before.

        Still, I like the idea of doing something to make it stand out more. For sure.

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

      Good luck with everything

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Thanks.

    • PrinceHeir

      Thanks for the hard work Zero :)

      Yeah Open Forum has come a LOOOONG Way!

      Even though back in 2012 i made a break from coming here on focus on Andriasang. When i came back i appreciated the community more here and how everyone is always excited about upcoming games.

      Even Andriasang only had like 30 active members and the rest are one time posts while others are anonymous.

      So really appreciate Sal and Zero and others who i may not know for maintaining this site and providing us the news and awesome stories ^^

      Even though me myself are opposed in banning people no matter how much i disagree with someone. But if someone starts to attack and threaten anyone here then we have a problem.

      I wonder what are some of the examples of Gariya’s post that banned him?

      All i see is his “dudebro comments” which can be irritating, but I don’t know if its worth the banned. Of course there might be other things that he said that i don’t know of that keeps getting him the warning here.

      And Zero you don’t have to do these prizes. I don’t want you to start losing money that maybe needed in your family and other important things.

      These things can wait, in fact just maintaining the site and monitoring the comments is more than enough for the community.

      And yeah i do notice some of my comments got a pending notification when i saw on my Disqus account.

      Yeah i can be aggressive sometimes, but not to the point that I’m slandering or insulting someone. Of course i can be vocal in a lot of things like about Atlus US, Censored games or edited games and so on.

      I also can’t believe @Budgiecat:disqus managed to get on top of comments!! I had that spot for a quite a long time and i remember me and Zero were constantly toe to toe with each other.

      Times sure has changed XD

      In any case great job Gematsu!! Keep up the good work as always!!

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        I think what got him banned was the dudebro comments and other troll-y comments like that. I don’t really see you being vocal about Atlus USA but eh that might be for the best as I idolize them like I used to idolize Square before they took a turn for the worse. >.< Also "believed" should be "believe" just a heads up.

        • PrinceHeir

          Oh i see.

          Thanks for the heads up!

          also “sued” is supposed to be “used”

          just a heads up :P

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

            sued and used? o.o I don’t see it! >< oh got it! Thanks.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Thanks for the kind post. =)

        I remember the days when it was just both of us close to the top of the most comments tab. =P

        It doesn’t even seem like that long ago to be honest. Time just flies sometimes.

        If a post is “pending” it somehow got flagged or auto flagged by Disqus. When I see them, I okay the comment and fix the problem. I just have to find it and read it along with everything else that is sent to pending/spam section.

        As for the contests, I appreciate you thinking about me. Rest assured, I can’t do them unless I’ve got cash on the side, but when that side cash needs to go towards family, real life situations, etc. It just has to. Like it has been lately. ^^

        Last. About having to ban and re-ban Gariya. It was a list of things sorta. It just kept building and building up. He ignored both Sal and I’s kind requests to stop posting not only stuff like that, but things that clash with all of our guidelines. I have no idea why, but he just kept pushing things. His comments and actions were often directed at specific individuals as well. He used them to provoke, single out, and/or belittle those folks. All over something so petty.

        I said to him over and over. It’s okay if you don’t like a type of game, or genre, etc. It’s not okay to spam post about it in every article, attack or troll users that do like it, etc.

        I also have users here contact me often when things get bad when I’m away, or someone is really bothering them, or other members of the community. I was getting contacted in regards to Gariya more and more. I was patient, I tried to reason, I tried basically everything.

        When someone won’t listen, when they refuse to follow a light set of guidelines that are loosely enforced, they are asking to be removed from that community/website. It’s called meeting the folks who run said website half way. It’s like I said, we don’t enforce or run this website strictly, you know that.

        In the end, I could no longer keep trying to discuss things and fix the problem over time. Not with other members of the community having so many problems with him. I had to do what was best for the community.

        I apologized to the folks that were being harassed, flamed, or trolled by him. Once again, sorry.

        I hope this answers some of your questions, Prince. ^^

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      That… is definitely a long post. xD I wish Disqus would reimplement the “show more” button on long comments. xD No offense. And I noticed a couple spelling mistakes but I won’t bother you with them… I am sure we can understand what you mean well enough.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        It’s kinda odd how Disqus uses the show more. I can’t edit the post for those mistakes unless I moderate it, because, I set it as the featured comment. I’m too lazy to try and edit it in the moderation panel. xD

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

    Heh… so I was watching the trailer of a NTR VN… It was very rage-inducing and has a very catchy tune playing in the background. So I downloaded the game to see how it goes, and the scenario turned out to be rather… meh, nowhere as rage-inducing as I thought it would be. I also extracted everything from the XP3 file, went through the BGM (even SFX and voices), and couldn’t find the tune featured in the trailer. Such bullshit…

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Gah why does Gematsu keep loading the mobile version of the site. >.<; There is a trick though if anybody else is having this problem, put ?nomobile at the end of the url and it will load the desktop site.

    • bloodiOS

      There’s also a “Full Site” link at the bottom, which does the same thing.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Yah I know, that is how I figure out the ?nomobile thing.

        • bloodiOS

          Yeah, I know, I just figure it’s faster than typing “?nomobile” in the address bar.

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

            Maybe… lol Could possibly make the browser auto go to that link though?

            • bloodiOS

              I’d just tap “End” to get to bottom and then click on “Full Site”.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      You could try what Bloodios said in his post below.

      or

      You could try clearing web browsers stuff. Cache, Cookies, etc.

      For some reason, when the website detects a slower incoming connection, it auto switches to the mobile version or something.

      I wish I had more specifics.

      You could also try switching to google’s DNS servers. I pretty much only use them on all my online devices.

      If you really want to do that, I’ll post a reply with a quick how to do this on PC. Fairly simple.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Yah the full site link is how I figured out the ?nomobile thing. I clean the cache and cookies every month or two, so I doubt that is it. And my connection is crap but it can’t be that bad? >.<; As for changing my DNS servers I could but I don't see a need to as I doubt it would really help much. And I know how to do that kind of stuff already Zero I am not a computer science major for nothing. xD

    • AdamBoy64

      Yes, absolutely. Many good memories playing SoM. Both old memories, and more recent ones.

      If it’s not my favourite game of all time, it’d be in my Top 2.

      • Arcana Gear

        i know, this is a classic, if you dont mind me asking, what is the other game that could be in the top spot?

        My case would be a competition between Secret of mana 3, FF6 and Chrono trigger.

        • AdamBoy64

          It’s a really tough one.

          I’d mix my top two up between old and new, and I’d go a Tales game. It’d be a toss up between Symphonia or Vesperia.

          Probably Symphonia. Even though the visuals have aged horribly, I think it has the better battle system and storyline of the two.

          When I played it for the first time, I was blown away – I thought great RPG’s like that had died years ago.

          It was also the game that made me go multi-platform. I was Nintendo-only up until then, but Symphonia made me realise I was missing out on other games like it – and others in the Tales series.

          So, part of that’s a personal experience.

          But I can imagine why someone would put a SNES RPG in there. There are some fantastic ones.

          Games like Terranigma, Lufia 2, EarthBound, Secret of Evermore, Illusion of Time/Gaia, and of course, the ones you’ve mentioned.

      EDIT: It would be no different than the holosuites in Star Trek. All you would need to do is input the data of the individual (and supply a picture if necessary), then let the program do the rest.

    Sometimes I want things… things like a PS4 version of Ninja Gaiden trilogy, Demon’s Souls, Tekken Revolution, Ultra Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 4, and Dragon’s Dogma, all running at native 1080p and at a solid 60fps (well, I don’t mind if Dragon’s Dogma runs at 1920×800 with black bars.) Here’s hoping that if the PS4 version of Ninja Gaiden trilogy ever happens, they will also add back all the stuffs that they removed from the Xbox 360 version of the first and second game while also keep all the extra stuffs in later iterations of the games.

    • 罪罰

      why not, Ninja Gaiden 4!? Demon Souls 2?! Tekken 8!? Street Fighter 5!? Resident Evil 7!? Dragons Dogma 2!? You know! Instead of rehashing!? You know what I’m saying dawg?

      • bloodiOS

        New games mean more budget. And they will come eventually anyway, so what’s the rush? I’m just suggesting some ideas that can help these company grab some quick bucks that I’m willing to toss out. Beside, some of these deserved to be remastered so that many fans can actually enjoy them at their full potential.

        • 罪罰

          They won’t come “eventually” if they get the team to work on silly rehashes for “quick cash” The games are there, they work fine. Some of those examples have been re-released countless times, you’re asking for another RE4 port? Seriously? SERIOUSLY.
          ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

          • bloodiOS

            Oh, so the original teams have been the ones working HD remaster all these years and not 3rd-party? Get real, Capcom can fund both the regular team to work on sequels and 3rd-party to work on remasters.

            • Budgiecat

              kay I’m with ManagedCorn on no more RE4 ports, you’re seriously asking Capcom to just be lazy as usual again…

              • bloodiOS

                I want a proper beautiful port of RE4 to play on the PS4. You guys don’t want that, that’s fine, but I want it.

                • Budgiecat

                  Why? Just play it on the PC if you’re so graphic intensive. What we want is Capcom to work on new games, stop being anti consumer, stop ruining their franchises, stop being lazy, stop pissing off their talent crew causing them to leave the company and stop with the dumb iOS shit..

                  And Tekken Revolution? That piece of crap? Not before we get Tekken X SF and the next main installment f Tekken first

                  Dont tell me you thought Soul Calibur Lost Swords was good..

                  • bloodiOS

                    But I don’t want to play it on PC. And it’s not like it has to be Capcom who works the freaking port, they can contract 3rd-party to do that. It’s the freaking PS4, we don’t need wizard to get games running good and decent on it. So what if I want Tekken Revolution on the PS4? Allowing to cross-play with the PS3 version would mean creating a healthy community and more money for Bamco, which also makes it more encouraging for them to fund more Tekken games in the future. And did you see me mentioning SSLS in my post? No? So how in world did you come to conclusion that I thought it was good?

                    • 罪罰

                      THEY HAVE JUST RE-RELEASED RE4, 2 DAYS AGO.
                      2 DAYS, IT’S HD, IT’S 1080P/60FPS.
                      YOU WANT IT AGAIN

                    • bloodiOS

                      Was it on the PS4? No!
                      I don’t want to play it on PC. It’s even in the first sentence!

                    • 罪罰

                      Such superficial mindset, the game remains the same. It’s a waste, a waste of time, a horrible quick cash that has corrupted the mindset of the industry. They don’t even put effort into it, you just want it running on PS4. Not even remake it, not even enhance the textures noticeably, just a plain stupid port at a higher resolution which you can just pop the game on PC and set to be 1080p.
                      “there it is”
                      “no i dun want it der”
                      things don’t work that way.

                    • bloodiOS

                      Yeah, because to play the damn thing, I’d have to actually upgrade my PC when I don’t want to. Why waste money do such a thing when I don’t even want to play games on PC? And I also haven’t truly played RE4, aside from bits and pieces at a friend’s house. And if I’m gonna play, might as well play it on the system that I want to play it on. Have you ever thought of that? That someone never played the game before want to play it now?

                    • 罪罰

                      ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING TO YOURSELF

                      CHRIST, dude. You are fighting about a game you barely even played. Instead of wishy washing arguing something so retarded you could go an experience the game. You’re just blocking your enjoyment like a spoiled brat and demand things to be in the things you want. Seriously.

                    • bloodiOS

                      I’m just expressing my desire here but that makes me a retarded spoiled brat? I’m sorry, do I personally cause harm to you? I want things, and if they happen, great, if not, whatever. I want what I want and it’s not your place to talk about how I function.

                      Whatever I chose to do is up to me. Whether or not I’m neglecting choices available for me should only matters to me, not to you or anyone else unless they actually affect you and others, or that I ask you to counsel me on the matter.

                      Don’t worry. One day the console industry will collapse and everyone will be playing on PC. Limitless backwards compatibility, graphical settings and mods for all.

                    • 罪罰

                      I don’t think it’ll ever collapse. I just think the gap between PC hardware and console will grow bigger as the years go by but I’ll prefer to play things on my plain console sitting in my couch.

                    • bloodiOS

                      Right… because I’m actively standing in front of Capcom’s HQ right now, protesting for a PS4 port…

                    • Budgiecat

                      help me

                    • Budgiecat

                      Wii version will always be the best

                    • Budgiecat

                      Just cause you didnt post it doesnt mean you didnt like it so i had to ask.
                      Anyways, its still investing wasted resources to outsource a company to do it, and TR is just a gimmick to bring in more players the real Tekken is the main series; thats why I also asked about SCLS
                      In the end, no HD port from Capcom was ever quality so why should we expect any different.

                    • bloodiOS

                      Well, I imagine the nature of the game would make an easy and painless job given the PS4’s vastly superior hardware. I think it’ll help gather more interests that way and get them more excited for the next entry.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Capcom is barely doing anything right these days for even seemingly simplest of tasks…

                    • bloodiOS

                      Doesn’t mean they will forever remain that way…

            • 罪罰

              and then the ports come all horrible and shit and you want them to port them YET AGAIN. Yes, more rehashes instead of using that budget on new games.

              • bloodiOS

                There are 3rd-party like Blue Point and Hexadrive that do high quality works. They can contract those to work on the ports and this is the freaking PS4, not a freaking maze that was the PS3. Porting should be much easier, and the chance for fuck-up should be significantly lower. Honestly, what’s stopping them to fund both, release both, and profit from both?

                • Budgiecat

                  Capcom doesn’t have their head on straight. Stop asking for the impossible…

                  • bloodiOS

                    If I was asking for the impossible, that would be asking for complete remakes.

                    • Budgiecat

                      They cant do HD remasters right and couldn’t care less what makes you think now would be any different.

                      When I ask for something like Shenmue HD Collection; its because that actually serves a purpose; to reignite Shenmue and get a whole slew of people who missed out on that series due to the Dreamcast dying early and barely anyone buying the sequel on the XBox because they barely knew what it was and the DC version was never even localized…

                      RE4’s had its day in the Sun…7 times over…this would be the 8th version. You’re asking Capcom to do what they do best which is milk the ever lovin shit out of games we dont need to be milking anymore…

                    • bloodiOS

                      Yeah, you’re right, I should stop asking when they will just do it anyway, so I’ll just get it then.

        • Budgiecat

          yeah new games will come….still waiting for that Shenmue III…

    Hmm~~ it always fills me with joy knowing that the PS3 version of Okami is rendered internally at 4K resolution.

    http://hexadrive.sblo.jp/article/59698038.html

    Hexadrive is group of wizards and should’ve been contracted to work the Silent Hill collection instead.

    • PrinceHeir

      They also did Zone of the Enders HD post patch. Which plays much better now, but of course the damage is done now with the initial impression.

      • bloodiOS

        Yeah, I know. Which is why it pisses me off so much the Silent Hill collection remains shitty as it is.

        • Budgiecat

          Konami don’t care

        • PrinceHeir

          Ehh it’s still shitty? i thought it had a patch>

          I still have my original Silent HIll 4 all in perfect condition(I know how to take care games!) and my Silent HIll 3 is left home back at my country(need to get it someday)

          only Silent Hill 2 which i haven’t played much(i bought a used copy, but it’s not the same)

          Is the HD Collection still viable? though Silent Hill 3 change of voice irks me :

          • bloodiOS

            Well, it’s playable, but there are still some aspects that need to be worked on.

        • Elvick

          To be fair for those who did the port/remaster, Konami lost the source code. So it’s not all their fault.

          They did the best they could with the situation.

      • Pyrofrost

        I still don’t see what all the problems were with ZoE. I played and beat both of them pre-patch, and had no problems at all. So I don’t understand what all the complaints were for.

  • PrinceHeir

    WOW!

    So my brother opened his League of Legends copy that we bought LAST 2009, and guess what? the character unlocks STILL works!!

    Seriously, why can’t other companies do it like this? Uncharted 2 GOTY DLC got expired just a year which sucks.

                    Oreshika (the original not the upcoming VITA sequel) was supposed to be really good. The VITA game looks phenomenal and I’d like to have a chance to play the original but, as these things go, the original is restricted to it’s home region of Japan.

                    Hard to say if you’re in the minority or majority since we have so many of the vocal minority nowadays. People who were content with it probably just play the game and enjoyed it for what it is, while those who aren’t seem to complain about it a lot.

                      Well to me the first was decent but as most agree too linear. The second was just crap. The third… I haven’t seen much of but it seems really wonky. I am just glad it is over. *shrug*

        • Pyrofrost

          If anything, from what I’ve seen so far, FFXV falls more in line with not being an FF than FFXIII did, imo.

          • bloodiOS

            But it will be the game that “saves” the Final Fantasy series *LOL* Of course, I’m excited for the game either way.

            • Pyrofrost

              Everyone is putting so much hope and hype into that game, and I’m looking forward to it myself.

              However, I secretly hope that game dashes everyone’s hopes, dreams, and hype into the dirt; for my personal amusement, of course.

                    Personally though, I want the FFXV to be an awesome game on its own while still dashing anything that one would expect from a FF game.

                      What i expect from FFXV: a more dark and serious Kingdom hearts. Using some of the concepts of final fantasy, such as summons and crystals.

                      I think it will be just that. I mean it doesn’t seem anything like a FF game really, but it seems fun nonetheless. I want to be able to play it now that it has been 8 years or so.

                    • Arcana Gear

                      I too agree that it seems fun, i think at will be at least decent, and probably great, SE is betting a lot on this game.

                      Oh, I’m sure it will be excellent, with eight years in development hell and with SE’s reputation and value in the dirt, it had better be the best game ever made.

                    • Arcana Gear

                      Neogaf on Bayonetta exclusive = Major meltdown.

                    • Six

                      That was incredible. It was amazing watching a site that claims to be so mature reach GameFAQS and N4G levels of insane.

                    • Arcana Gear

                      Oh yeah, i think the kindergarten at my school is more mature than neogaf when in a meltdown status, it ranges from extreme idiocy to hilarious posts. Like when people said that Platinum games betrayed the fans, etc, etc.

                    • Six

                      I’ll never forget when someone equated it to having food taken from their child’s mouth.

                    • Arcana Gear

                      Or when they equate the gaming hobby to important matters as nazism, war, etc.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      With terms such as “console war.”

                      But yeah, gaming is a HOBBY! It’s supposed to be FUN! I think a lot of people forget that.

                    • Arcana Gear

                      Yes, if you see the boards in communities, its all about fps and resolution, which game is worse, the console wars, exclusives, trolling, putting defects in games, etc im no saying that people cant do this, but when they do this 99% of the time, and forget to enjoy the games, something isnt right.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      I completely agree, I can’t really follow up; but yeah, know that I am in agreement.

                      Personally, I’m glad I didn’t end up like that, I’m happy with the fact that I can just pick up a game and enjoy it. Earlier people were talking about the fuss surrounding ZoE HD collection. Personally, I didn’t understand the complaints. I kicked that games ass before the patch came out; and my experience with the game was just fine *shrugs*

                    • Arcana Gear

                      Yeah like tales of symphonia chronicles, people are making a fuss cause the game cube had 60 fps, but this port is from the ps2 which had 30fps, and it have much more content, so i’m glad for this coming over and when i get it i’m sure i’ll spend days playing it.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      Some people talk about the PS2 version of that game like it’s broken beyond repair. I get the feeling those people have never actually played a broken game.

                      It really is a great game though, and I’m 100% sure you will enjoy it. I’m glad to hear you’re brushing off the BS.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      People like that used to be the reason why I never bothered playing quite a few games. Whether they loved or hated a game, a lot of them would often get so bloody annoying that I’d relate my frustration with the game itself, therefore steering clear from it. Missed out on quite a few magnificent experiences when they were still new and fresh, though I did manage to catch up on/learn more about a few of them :D

                    • Six

                      Pfft. You think these people actually PLAY games? :P

                    • Pyrofrost

                      They’re likely too busy talking shit on the internet to actually take the time to play.

                      Sounds legit? ;)

                I don’t think Square Enix fans can handle much more disappointment.

                At this rate, they’ll need support groups.

                • Pyrofrost

                  But wouldn’t you enjoy the show~
                  Come on, admit it :p

              • new_tradition

                It’s kind of annoying since as Versus XIII it was hyped but didn’t get hated on much (if at all), but the second it became XV, all I read is how a action-rpg isn’t FF, that anything related to the Kingdom Hearts staff is crap, etc, etc.

                And I’m just “wtf do you people want? D:”

                Then of course I kind of sigh and expect to enjoy the game perfectly well like always :’D

                • bloodiOS

                  Well, those people were probably fine with it before because Versus wasn’t supposed to be a “main” entry. The game was regarded as a spin-off that also meant to be Nomura’s experiment at making something different. It all changed when the Fir… err, when Square Enix announced it at E3 as a main entry. But whatever, doesn’t matter what it is, I still like it.

                  • new_tradition

                    Fir-?

                    I see what you’re saying, but it just still seems silly to me. Becoming FFXV didn’t change anything about the game as far as I know. I mean, if anything, I still refer to it in my head as Versus xD

                    • bloodiOS

                      This:

                      http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/everything-changed-when-the-fire-nation-attacked

                      I think people regard to it as something akin to nominate a heretic as the new leader of a group of purists. But whatever, all silly stuffs in the end.

                    • new_tradition

                      Oh, lol xD

                • Pyrofrost

                  Yeah, for me personally, I don’t really care about what makes FF an FF game or not. It’s the same reason I didn’t mind what Atlus did with SMTIV.
                  All I want is a steady stream of JRPGs to keep coming. In then end, that’s all I care about.

          • Budgiecat

            Only the battle engine because “it’s not turn based”

            But everything else screams FF more so than “Hallway Waifu XIII”

            • Pekola

              Bad Kitty!

              To be honest, the stylistic choices in XIII are more on par with other Final Fantasies than XV so far.

              Less color distinctions, darker looks, ect. So disagree. In my humble opinion, the ones that stand out a bit more are XII and XV (me not having played the online ones, mind you)

              Note: I’m with Aura on this, and I don’t think any of the games -aren’t- Final Fantasy. Just some stand out more than others.

              • Budgiecat

                Im not even talking about the visuals though….

                • Pekola

        Just a vague “summer” release as of right now.

        • Ghost Doge

          Alright, I’ll keep an eye on it. Hadn’t heard about the game until your post and after a quick Google search, my wallet is ready! So thanks for that :D

      • $18114340

        It got pushed back. They released a devlog recently that talked about why it’s been taking so long. Apparently they only have two artists, and one of them has been ill for months. They’re starting to pick the pace back up but it won’t be releasing with new characters until summer. The arcade version is still on track in Japan though because that’s based on an older version that doesn’t have the new characters.

      Love the new avatar Six.

        I’m still confused as to how an anime based off of the Kagerou Project managed to slip past me for so long.

        Hype is at pre-Kill la Kill levels, for better or for worse.

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

          lol Pre-Kill la Kill. xD Yah the anime isn’t out yet.

          • Six

            It starts next month, which is nice. Saves me the trouble of twiddling my thumbs for too long.

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

              Right. I read like 2 chapters of the manga. I liked it but I haven’t gotten around to it.

  • jujubee88

    Playstation All-Stars is a great game, but that damn patch needs to come. I feel like the first patch that came after the team left (from the SSM team) kind of changed the game in a way that didn’t sit well with me.

    • Budgiecat

      Think most people have moved on from that game….

      looking forward to some J-Stars…..

      • jujubee88

        How do you mean? I play some of the same people I played from since launch. I think I’m still friends and play some rounds with people from beta.

        • jujubee88

          It’s found it’s niche but I guess it never became this big smash or SF hit. I’ll concede that.

                  • jujubee88

                    My point is that the game is still active and relevant and that I (along with others) want the thing properly balanced.

                    I think the netcode issues are less (though werd shtuff still happends online), but more important is balancing certain OP characters. Because that would just make the ppl already playing it enjoy it more.

      • Six

        He’ll be talking about La-Mulana 2 which was recently funded through Kickstarter. Hopefully his story, along with Kickstarter’s own presentation, will inspire more JP indie devs to give crowdfunding a shot.

        • z_merquise

          Yeah, there’s so many small but talented game devs in Japan that aren’t aware of Kickstarter or other crowdfunding stuff. Though at least there’s some who are starting to discover it like Treasure, the Vanguard Princess dev, Keiji Inafune’s company etc. so it’s a good start.

          And did you just created another account again?

        the latter.

        But at this point, most people are past it and really just glad te XIII series is over….

  • bloodiOS

    And here I thought Shadow of the Colossus HD was the only console game with a native resolution as weird as 960×1080, but what do you know? Killzone: Shadow Fall ‘s multiplayer is also rendered at 960×1080 according to Eurogamer’s Richard Leadbetter (link). Remember this?

    http://gematsu.com/2013/11/killzone-shadow-fall-ultra-high-bitrate-multiplayer-footage

    Yeah, it was actually running with ~7.6% (78,336) less pixels than Titanfall (on XBO) but used some over-the-top upscaling method to look that good. The fact that no one knew it was running at such low resolution is pretty telling.

    • Six

      Just read the thread about this over on NeoGAF. It’s embarrassing.

      Not the resolution, but people’s reaction to this news.

      The only reason people are upset is because they have one less game to tout the next time an Xbone exclusive runs at less than 1080p. If people really cared THAT much about resolution, they’d be PC gamers.

      • bloodiOS

        Sony lied! Guerilla Games lied! Now I can't rub it in the faces of Xboners! Boo hoo hoo!^Pretty much this, right?

        • Six

          Pretty much. I’m sure the hyperbole will burn all night long.

          Because, you know, Shadow Fall is now the worst looking game EVAR!

          • bloodiOS

            I’m sure now both PS and XB enthusiasts will start dragging the issue out of proportion, more than it deserved to be.

            • Six

              Of course. That’s what video games are all about. There is no time to play them, you’ve got to get on the internet and explain why your favorite faceless multinational corporation is the best faceless multinational corporation.

      • Elvick

        I don’t see why people care what exclusives run at.

        The developers are working on an exclusive, so they just do what they want with it.

        Multiplatforms are the only thing that matter to compare. To me at least. Anyone that compares exclusives is silly.

        For example DriveClub is aiming to have a lot of detail and dynamic elements. While Forza 5(? can’t remember what number it’s at) is just aiming to be a good racing game. With bare minimum of excess.

  • kirby755

    I bought myself Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne, I was ashamed of myself back then because When I was younger, I was never interested that much into the game and traded it in. But now I have the game again and I will enjoy it dammit.

    P.S. I’m also getting Hatsune Miku Project Diva F on Vita and I was wondering is there any difference from the PS3 version?

    • Six

      The Vita version is missing some songs from the PS3 version that are being sold as DLC (Vita version came out first in Japan and all that).

      However, the Vita version is being sold at $30, and the DLC songs are rumored to be $10, so in the end, it’ll still be cheaper if true.

      • kirby755

        Thanks Six. Also nice profile pic.

        Thanks I will be spending sleepless nights on this game.

        • Pyrofrost

          I have over 500 total hours logged into my game. It’s definitely one of the best JRPG experiences out there.

          What other MegaTen games do you have experience with?

          • kirby755

            Mostly Persona series, but I have played Devil Summoner 1 and 2. Also Had my eyes out on Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2. Also I played the Online one as well.

            • Arcana Gear

              I warn you, Nocturne is HARD! like Rage quitting hard if you dont pick tips/guides on the internet.

              • kirby755

                0_0 Thanks for the warning, Hmmm. but I wonder how long its gonna take me to get stuck.

            • Pyrofrost

              Yeah, the DDS duology is also awesome, if you can find it anywhere, I say snag it.

              About SMT Nocturne, I will warn you in advance, do not expect that game to hold your hand. It will chew you up and spit you out before you know it.

              Matador is basically the “nut check” in that game to show you what you’re in for; but to be honest, it’s one of those JRPGs where you can die at a moments notice, even if you are prepared, lol. However, its still awesome, you just have to keep pushing.

              I completed that game 100% though, so if you have any questions at all, you’re welcome to ask me ^_^

              • kirby755

                Wow 2 warnings so far, this is going to test all my skills and make want to have a fit huh. Also thanks I believe I will have questions soon.

                • Pyrofrost

                  np man, I’m here if you need me.

                  I will let you know in advance, do not fuse, evolve, or drop pixie. Keep it on your person and do not let it go (so you can get super pixie).

                  Download this:
                  http://www.phpsimplicity.com/heretic/

                  On gamefaqs, the guide written by Alex is sufficient; along with the supplemental information in the in-depth and the maps and charts sections.

                  If you’re looking for any useful tools.

                  Keep in mind, the game does weigh your responses in direction to the ending, so choose carefully. I advise setting course for the true ending on your first playthrough.

                  • kirby755

                    Wow that’s going to be really useful and interesting.

                    • Pyrofrost

    I’m looking forward to it, and I have my copy preordered ^_^

    • Revorse

      Second time getting a platinum? You got two PSN accounts?
      And OOO? As the go-to guy? He only has 1 attack in each of his forms. I felt so gypped.

      • Pyrofrost

        The first plat I earned for it wasn’t on my account.

        But yeah, OOO in his Putotyra Combo is absolutely too OP in that game; and Gatakiriba Combo, Sagohzo Combo, and Shauta Combo (not as much as Gata and Sago) are most excellent for crowd control.

  • TheExile285

    Beat Danganronpa 1 about an hour ago. Wow…. 10/10

    Anyway, I’m curious if any of you guys have both played the game and watched the anime. If so, would you recommend the anime? Is it like the Persona 4 anime with lots of references to the game thrown in? Also, are the murders more graphic then they were in the game? If so, I’ll probably skip it then.

    • MrFinalgamer

      from what i’ve heard the anime is mostly about how the characters are killed, instead of showing character development (main issue i’ve heard).

      • TheExile285

        Yeahhhhh pass then. Definetly pass…

    • Elvick

      I didn’t hear specifics, but it seems like the anime is bad based on what I’ve heard.

      I’m going to watch it and see what it’s like after beating the game. Still haven’t started it though. Was playing Toukiden, the Tomb Raider: DE and now Toukiden resumes.

      Gonna try to finish Toukiden before inFamous: SS and then play Danganronpa.

    • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

      Yeah beaten it last week. It’s amazing game :D
      Can’t wait to play DR2 and new update on Danganronpa Another Episode which has Toko Fukawa (my favorite character <3), hope they also announce DR3 which they teased last TGS.

    Beaten Ys Celceta last night, great game, awesome music. It’s amazing the music I never heard before but it made me feel nostalgic.

    I’m on Ys fever now after beating the game, I’m playing The Oath in Felghana right now since I have already beaten Ys I&II Chronicles way back, planning to play Ys Seven after this.

    I hope the game Falcom teased for PS4 is new Ys game hopefully Ys 8. Also they could remake Ys 5 for Vita which would be perfect :D

        Yeah… It seems a lot of people are blaming the dude, but I’m putting the blame on the girlfriend here. Sounds like she’s a manipulative bitch, honestly.

    • Elvick

      NOT THE POTS

      I think it’s the girlfriend’s fault. Don’t call your estranged husband. If you have an actual problem, call the police. Unnecessary violence.

    I guess it’s one of those days today.

    A. I want to make music, but have no ideas as to what to make, so I’m left frustrated while looking at a blank project after going through countless VSTs and such

    B. I want to draw, but have no idea how and become frustrated when I try to learn since it’s not clicking

    C. I want to write, but apparently nobody gives a shit about what I write, so what’s the point?

    Overall, I just wish I could do SOMETHING.

          The difference between a job and a hobby is that you are competing with other people for jobs, so there is a limited supply of them. The only thing stopping you from getting into a hobby is yourself.

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

            Actually, I was applying that more to his “then do it” attitude. Even with a hobby, it’s not as simple as just doing it. If things were that easy, nobody would ever feel conflicted about anything they ever did in their spare time.

            • $18114340

              What were you expecting? An unconditional ego boost?

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

                Lol no

                Although, I would expect you to be a little more realistic next time instead of trying to give some philosophical approach like, “You are the only one standing between yourself and freedom.” or some shit, lol.

                • $18114340

                  Philosophy and realism frequently coincide; that’s why the former exists. And I never said anything as grand and sweeping as, “you are the only one standing between yourself and freedom”. I said that if you want to sit there wishing you could do something, blaming the non-existent people who you assume won’t read what you write, or saying that you go through “countless VSTs” instead of sticking with just one to learn the ropes or something, then I don’t see how that’s anymore “realistic” than anything I said.

                  Would you agree that the reason why you can’t do “something” is because of yourself? Who else or what else do you have to blame? “It’s too difficult. I can’t do it. What’s the point?”

                  You want some realistic advice? Stop complaining. You’ll be a better person.

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

                    Yeah, I’m sure you never complain about anything in your life, ever. Look, next time you want to bring out the soap box and start preaching to someone, maybe you should take your own advice first. Otherwise, you just make yourself look like a hypocrite.

                    Don’t complain now. Remember, you need to be the better person.

                    • $18114340

                      Hey, this isn’t a competition. I’m perfectly fine with looking like a hypocrite. I might not even complain about it. If you’re expecting valid advice to come only from the mouths of saints then you’re taking advisory too literally and expecting it to act as more than just advice. Best of luck to you. Hope you get to write something, or draw something, or make the music that you want.

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

                      I know it’s not a competition, which is exactly why I got upset when you took the high ground, acting as if you were a better person. Also, it’s not as if I was expecting sage advice or anything. It was more like I was hoping to find someone that could relate to my issue at the moment.

                      I just feel a little lost and empty in my life right now. Sure, I enjoy playing video games and whatnot, but I feel like I should be doing more. I could get back to writing again, but nobody even commented on the first volume that I released in January, so what’s the point in continuing that?

                      Secondly, the music isn’t going anywhere because I lack inspiration. I want to make something new, but you can’t force ideas. It doesn’t work that way, hence the frustration. As for drawing… I think there’s just a mental block there preventing me from learning.

                      I’ve looked over quite a few tutorials and have gotten advice from a couple of well known artists (albeit, they draw hentai, lol), and even someone that has been an instructor at an art school for over 5 years. I just can’t understand it though. It’s not that I don’t want to, but no matter how hard I try, it doesn’t click.

                      I’m the same way with Algebra. No matter how hard my teachers, friends, and family members tried to teach me, I could never learn it. This is why I take the “just do it” advice with a grain of salt since there are some things in this world that simply cannot be done, regardless of how much you may want to do it.

                      So, while I do believe that I am partially to blame for my own roadblock, due to the mental block, I’m not going to take all of the blame since it’s something I can’t fix.

                    • Budgiecat

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

        >Maybe it’s just that today isn’t a creative day

        I think it’s more like it has been piling on day after day since I live a day-to-day life instead of worrying about what I’m going to do next week or the next five years. Yesterday, I slept through the whole day and didn’t wake up until this morning.

        >What kinds of music do you normally create? Would you be open to collaborating?

        Kind of hard to say, but I guess mostly Dark Ambient and EDM, I guess (it sort of sounds like stuff you’d hear in Streets of Rage, but I’m not sure what that genre is).

        As for the collaborating… I can’t even come up with an idea on my own right now, so it hardly seems reasonable for me to expect to collaborate with someone.

        >What kinds of things do you like to write? Why?

        Action, drama, adult-themed, war, mecha, fantasy, you name it. As for why… I guess cause I want to? I’ve had a handful people tell me I should write for myself. That’s all well and good until you put your work out there for the world to see, then once you don’t get any feedback, like I did… You begin to doubt yourself.

      I was playing it and got partway to chapter 2 before getting sucked into LR, but now that I finished that game for now, I’m going back to this.

      Over-all I really enjoyed playing it. Putting in the “fast forward” mechanic helps a lot in my opinion during battles. I felt like my leveling was all over the place, though. I kind of wanna just master a job all the way one at a time, but then I read up on how other jobs have really useful abilities worth getting, so I’m pretty indecisive xD

      Also, the English voice acting is superb, and I was surprised how some dark some side quests can get.

      Character wise, I like Tizz, but Agnes is still taking me a bit to warm up to. It doesn’t help that I greatly favour Edea and Ringabel, lol.

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

    Well, Sega of Japan just took legal action against part 17 of Ishin and forcefully removed it. So, my account now has its first strike against it. What does this mean? Well, a few things.

    A. I have to stop uploading Ryu ga Gotoku: Ishin videos. Therefore, I have already removed the previous parts as I may get an additional strike (or two) for them.

    B. My upload limit has now been reduced to 15 minutes due to the strike.

    C. My account is currently on a six month suspension (this is generally how long it takes for the strike to disappear from an account), so… This basically cuts into my schedule for the rest of the year.

    All-in-all, I will have one of two options here:

    1. Wait until the suspension wears off and I get my upload limit back

    2. Continue uploading in 15 minute intervals and upload more parts for playthroughs because of this

    • MrFinalgamer

      damn, that sucks man, specially because Ishin looks pretty freaking cool (the naked battles are a nice plus).
      can’t you just upload 15 minute videos for 6 months, until the suspension is gone, or do you HAVE to choose whether to wait or not?

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

        Well, I don’t have to choose. It’s more of a personal preference thing. Hell, I can’t even clear one stage in Basara 4 in under 15 minutes, unless I rush through it and skip fights, so it would be pretty annoying to have to watch two parts for one stage. I don’t know what I’m going to do yet.

        Maybe I’ll open an alt account in the meantime to keep doing what I’ve been doing. I’m just not sure.

        • Six

      No idea. When I try to access the main website, it times out everytime. To my understanding though, it’s not even a new game anyway. Z is just an expansion to DWO in order to improve the graphics and add the Jin kingdom along with DW8 content.

    Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne’s Kalpa tests are so annoying and yet they are very important to get allies! It took me a lot already to pass the first one.

    • Pyrofrost

      When you make it to the 3rd Kalpa, you will want to camp their for a while and level grind on the Arahabaki. It’s one of the very best grinding spots in the game, as you will almost always get epic chain battles and they can be taken down easily.
      IIRC, they are on the basement floor there.

      Another really good spot is that park/construction site. There is a healing fountain there and you can get some epic chains with the Faries (like Oberon, Titania, and Setanta).

      Those are the two best grinding areas till endgame.

  • Ghost Doge

    So The Amazing Spider-man 2 game seems like it’ll be out a week before the movie. I’m curious about it and want to see more gameplay. The short trailer we’ve seen makes it seem like your webs actually attach to buildings this time around as opposed to some random point located in midair. If that’s the case, I’m definitely buying this one. The swinging in Spider-man 2 was absolutely fantastic and is pretty much the reason I spent so many hours playing and replaying that game as opposed to the first one.

    • MrFinalgamer

      is it me, or are people more hyped for the game than the movie?

      • Ghost Doge

        Can’t speak for anyone else but far as my own thoughts go, you’re more or less correct. I mean, I want to see the movie, but knowing there’ll be THREE villains all squished into one two-hour movie just gives me a bad feeling. And that’s before I even think about Gwen’s story (according to the comics).

        As far as the game, I REALLY want it, but only if the swinging is done well. Otherwise I’m out :D

              i feel that Rhino is going to be the Venom of this movie (completely shoehorned)

              • Ghost Doge

                Likewise. I think I’ve seen him in all of…. Two scenes so far :P

        • Pyrofrost

          Seriously, they are picking up the same flaw the Batman movies had before Batman Begins.

        • bloodiOS

          Yeah, and not enough swag:

        • Gigus

          I’m worried about that also since the last spider-man film that had three villains. So far the magic number for having multiple villains in a super hero movie is two.

          To be honest I’m actually having doubts about Jamie Foxx’s performance as Electro. For some reason, I find The Shocker to be a better villain roll for him.

            Not entirely sure about the casting myself, but I suppose we’ll see how it works out when May gets here :P

            • Gigus

              *spoiler*
              I’d be surprised if Gwen Stacy will be a trilogy arc before they off her.

              • Ghost Doge

                Shh. Don’t spoil anything for people who haven’t read the comics!

                But yeah, that’s kinda what I’m hoping for, though at the same time, what the hell else would the Green Goblin be doing? There has to be a relatively satisfactory resolution to his actions since I doubt they’ll end the movie on a huge cliffhanger and just make everyone wait two more years for it to continue.

                I mean, I get if they try to foreshadow something in the final scenes, but if that’s what the Goblin’s role is going to be, why even bother mentioning him? That’d be like putting the shawarma place on The Avengers’ poster. The fact that he’s already mentioned makes me feel that they’re planning on doing something with him, and the fact that there are two other villains makes me feel uncomfortable with the time frame.

                • Gigus

                  *spoiler*
                  I put spoiler edit on it already Xd My bad.
                  But remember though Harry isn’t the real goblin. The next best thing they can do give the real goblin any purpose is to kill harry and make his dad avenge him. If I remember correctly Harry died in the ultimate universe….. I think

                  • Ghost Doge

                    That’s true. Normal was the Green Goblin during the part of the comics that I keep thinking about, so they might have something up their sleeve as far as the movie goes. Still unsure but I’ll end up watching it anyway so whatever :P

                    • Gigus

                      I’d be happy if they killed Harry. He’s been way too annoying even in the comic books. Its funny how Flash makes a better friend to peter than harry lol. Kinda sad to see Marvel and DC comics suck so bad now.

                      Going off topic but they just killed professor x (again), and marvel is planning on killing off the ultimate universe. *sigh*

                    • Ghost Doge

                      Marvel needs something better to do so they stop breaking good things >.>

                  make that 1 year, and you basically have the ending of The Hobbit 2 >_>

                  • Ghost Doge

                    Good thing I never watched either one of the two Hobbit movies. I hate shit like that. Except when they pulled it in Machete Kills. I never cared about the story when I watched it so I wasn’t entirely disappointed when they basically said “We’re going to space now, so see you in the next movie, bitches!” Still bugged me a little but only for about 10 minutes after the credits rolled :P

                    • Gigus

                      Who the hell watches a grindhouse film for the story? Just kidding.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      HEY MAN. MAYBE I JUST REALLY WANTED TO SEE MACHETE HAVE A HAPPY ENDING WHERE HE GETS THE GIRL AND THEY RIDE OFF INTO THE SUNSET AFTER JUST GETTING MARRIED, ALRIGHT?!

                      Maybe I wanted to see Danny Trejo go through the emotional struggle of having to fight for a loved one who has been taken away by a murderer!

                    • Gigus

                      You must be watching the wrong Machete movie. Last time I checked it had Danny Trejo killing Steven Segal XD.

      I’m actually more excited for the game because Kraven is in it.

      • Ghost Doge

        On that note, I’d like to know more about what other villains are in the game. But at the same time, my interest is only in it because the trailer made the web swinging look like it was actually good. Whether or not that’s the case, we’ve yet to find out! Channeling Yoda, I must stop!

    • Elvick

      They already confirmed, ages ago, that’s how it works.

  • z_merquise

    I hope someone here can help. I’m trying to use a PS3 controller for my laptop to play some PC games I got from Steam.

    Okay, so I have Motioninjoy and Better DS3 installed. Connect my PS3
    controller to the laptop via USB and I saw the computer downloaded the
    driver. I also went to Device Manager and made sure that the Bluetooth was enabled.

    So for what I found, just install the software then follow the video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XONp–MdnE4

    But
    when I opened Better DS3, there’s no controller detected unlike the one
    I watched in the video. Is there anything else? I also installed
    Motioninjoy but when I opened it, it just said “Wait for the controller
    to be connected” and that’s just it, it also wont detect my PS3
    controller.

    • $18114340

      This is a shot in the dark, but try using a different USB cable.

      EDIT: derp, that might not have anything to do with your problem, I’m not thinking straight.

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

      That’s really weird. Honestly, all I had to do was plug up my DS3 and it worked, simple as that.

    • Anime10121

      Ive had some REALLY bad experiences with the motion joy drivers, I wouldnt recommend them to anybody…

      I hate how they seem to disorient your ps3 controllers too. Kinda makes it to the point that your ds3’s dont want to connect to your Ps3, I mean you can get it back working if you shut your ps3 on while connected, but sometimes, that doesnt even work and you just have to let the batteries die…

  • PrinceHeir

    Any Decent Spiderman games?

    I played 1-3 on PS2 and 2 is definitely the best.

    3 got rid a lot of the cool tricks you could do and instead made the web swinging not so great.

    I’m curious about the newer games like Web of Shadows, Amazing Spiderman 2.

    Are they any good?

    • Pyrofrost

      The last good Spider-man game released imo, was Maximum Carnage.

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

        Hard as hell too, lol.

        • Pyrofrost

          Shhhhhhh~ don’t tell~ :p

          Seriously though, it’s probably one of the hardest beat ’em ups I’ve ever played. Up there with Battletoads.

    • Gigus

      Ultimate Spider-man and The Amazing Spider-man (2012).

    • Elvick

      The Amazing Spiderman is decent. I really enjoyed it. Got the platinum on PS3 and PS Vita. Vita port is weak though, tons of framerate drops, ugly textures (aside from on Spiderman), missing content from the base game, no DLC.

      Still nice to have an open world game on Vita again though.

      But yeah, the 360/PS3 version should be good to go. Or Wii U, I think it’s on there.

    Decided to look for a quick gameplay video of an old Spider-man game I loved when I was younger. Ended up finding a one-and-a-half hour long playthrough. OH MAH LAWD THE NOSTALGIA.

    • PrinceHeir

      The ending is one of my favorites!

      Especially the way Carnage is chasing you! ^^

      • Ghost Doge

        What part was such a bitch to get through >.>

        And so damn rewarding once you actually made it :D

      • new_tradition

        That part freaked me out so much. I remember my heart hammering so hard in my chest. Scary thing, especially when he/they get you >.<

        I wonder if it ever happened in any of the comic series or if the game was all original…

        • PrinceHeir

          Same feel as well!!!

    • new_tradition

      Ahhhhh, I remember this! This was one of the first PS1 games I ever played. I remember me and my cousin trying to get through it. Good times ^^

      EDIT: Wait, isn’t DareDevil blind..? How could he play cards, or could his infrared see the patterns and such?

      • Ghost Doge

        I remember working so very hard to unlock every single costume so I can then replay the game from start to finish while wearing said costumes! I also remember failing and using a cheat code to unlock Spider-man 2099 because I had trouble finding two comic books…. Found them during my next playthrough and hated myself a little for using the cheap way >.>

        • new_tradition

          I remember being so happy to have that unlimited web costume (Venom?). I wasted webbing so easily >.>

          • Ghost Doge

            On that note…. It took me far too many playthroughs until I figured out the web types…. Y’know Triangle + Direction on the D-pad? Web fists? Web dome? Yeah. I didn’t know about those at all until I pressed a button by accident. Once that happened, my web fluid was just….. Gone :D

    Just bought Vanguard Princess on Steam. It’s nice to see more doujin games slowly make their way to Valve’s platform.

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

      Only took them a few years to put it on there =3=

      • Six

        Well, hopefully it’ll be successful enough to inspire others to follow suit.

        BitSummit starts in a few days, and hopefully Valve will be there again to provide the necessary guidance and tools to make it as easy as possible for doujin devs to get their games to a world-wide audience.

        Publishers like Playism and Nyu Media are doing good things too, even going so far as assisting with crowdfunding projects like La-Mulana 2 and Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm.

    • $18114340

      … Why would you BUY it? It’s exactly the same as the freeware version and the developer is MIA. Considering the shadiness of the publisher I wouldn’t be surprised if he isn’t receiving much (if any) of the money anyway.

  • Ghost Doge

    @disqus_YhW3MNMevX:disqus FINALLY you made an appearance.

    My friend called me earlier. He received his first shirt in the mail (Minions one for his brother). Apparently the shirts seem to run a big bigger than normal since he ordered XL just to be safe and it turned out that XL was pretty damn large once he opened it. After hearing this, I checked the site’s sizing and according to their charts, his XL shirt actually seems to be an inch smaller. Way I see it, his brother has a little room to grow anyway :D

    That said, I probably should’ve checked the size charts before I had him order for me. XL might be a little big, but if anything it’ll get you a couple more sales, assuming I decide to get a smaller size in the future :P

    Oh and on a side note, and I mean side-side note, apparently his invoice had his package’s contents listed as “Quantity: 0″. He got the shirt he paid for and everything, but he found that amusing enough to tell me about it, so I’m passing the information down <.<

    • Gigus

      Sorry man. I can’t really do anything about it. You have to take that up to Teepublic if hes having problem. I thought people are aware of their sizes before they make clothing purchases XD. The site is US based so aren’t Americans usually big? I tried buying a unisex size shirt and its still way to big for me lol.

      As far as making an appearance, I’ve been way to busy with my drawings lately, as well as establishing an art profile. I can’t believe I have make twitter account. Still iffy about the facebook acount as well -__-.

      • Ghost Doge

        Nah, it’s not a problem. Just his assumption of what XL would be like (which was a mistake I ended up making as well). Either way, the shirt is fine, the size is pretty much a nonissue, and regardless of the invoice, he paid for a shirt and he got it so everything’s squared away.

        Far as my comment on your attendance, it was only because I couldn’t seem to tag you if you hadn’t already commented :P

        • Gigus

          Even if you made the tag yourself, there was still a 50/50 chance of me being on here. I just decided to take a break even though I have way too much cr@p (had to censor, disqus finds it vulgar XD) to do.

          How is the print on the shirt though? I only ask because that website is still very new.

          • Ghost Doge

            They’ve never censored me before and I have a habit of swearing every now and again >.> And it’s far worse than ‘crap’ <.<

            The print is nice, though it does seem like they might still be refining their technique from what I saw. To be fair, a close-up on webcam isn't quite as good as seeing the thing with my own eyes, so my judgement might be off. Another thing (once again, only saw it through a webcam so take that into consideration when reading), the shadows on the minions were very close to the shirt's color so they looked more like sweat stains than shadows. I couldn't even see them until my friend put the design almost up against his laptop's screen. Overall it was very nicely positioned and my friend said the shirt actually felt like it was a good quality, so good choice of material :P

            • Gigus

              XD sweat stains. You have to see the design on a tee yourself lol. Anyways, as long as he’s enjoying the shirt, I’ll be fine with using teepublic again to milk my designs if I run out of ideas.

              You need to get your shirt and ruin it already lol.

              • Ghost Doge

                I DO WHAT I WANT. And don’t tempt me. I’ve been wanting to take a trip down to Georgia for a few days now. Friend of mine lives there and her house is in a fantastic location (practically at the edge of a forest) so I can run til my heart’s content! Shirt would probably get destroyed after a couple of days’ worth with that level of abuse though :D

                • Gigus

                  That shirt would end up being a bandanna and a flag if you stayed in the forest for 1 day. You’d be on the Georgia Newspaper. Headline would be, crazy ex paratrooper of the US airforce recruiting hobos for a fictional military group from a video game.

                      A. It would just make me feel incredibly awkward/uncomfortable since I’ve never seen a girl naked (or half-naked) before (not outside of the internet and such anyway :p

                      B. I’d probably be laughing like an idiot from embarrassment. More importantly, I wouldn’t have taken my shirt off anyway. I don’t do that in front of anyone, even my doctor. Whenever I would go swimming as a kid, I’d always leave my shirt on since it just seemed embarrassing to be so exposed otherwise.

                      C. I tend to prefer a clothed female over a naked/half-naked one since I like to leave something to the imagination. When you’re naked, well… That’s it. That’s all there is. The “show” is over. The mystery is gone… So that kind of sucks and ruins it for me, lol.

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

                      A. Eh I would probably feel incredibly awkward, I mean I was embarrassed by simply being hugged by a girl.

                      B. I am well… probably more than slightly overweight… (sigh) but I still took my shirt off when I went swimming in public. Now when I had to for school I said fuck them and just didn’t swim. *shrug*

                      C. Well I prefer a clothed female too, but your reasoning sounds… odd to me. xD I mostly care about inner beauty anyways.

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

                      A. I’ve only went as far as holding hands with one and I’ve had 7 girlfriends in my life so far. That’s mainly my fault though. I’m not very physical with people, soooo… I get kind of weird if you try to force a handshake, hug, or something beyond that on me, which is exactly why one of my girlfriends dumped me after I rejected her kiss since she attempted to steal my first one. So yeah, my lips are still “pure” I guess? Haha.

                      B. I’ve always been considered underweight, but even with a slender build… I just don’t want people looking at me like that. It’s weird.

                      C. Well, a deeper reasoning would simply be that I’m a fetishist and nudity does nothing for me, lol. If I had a choice, I’d take clothed sex over straight up naked sex any day of the week.

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

                      A. Heh… I see… well I haven’t really ever been in a situation like that. Forever alone. But I dunno if being hugged is any indication I would be just *boom*.

                      B. That can also be something people are harsh over. All you need to do is eat a bit more. xD I’ve been kind of working on my weight but eh.

                      C. Uhh… hmm… ok… Let’s… leave it at that… ><;

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

                      A. Trust me, she wanted to go further than that, lol. Let’s just say… Being in a dark theater really doesn’t help with a girl that has roaming hands and it’s not exactly the best idea to scream in such a crowded place ;w;

                      B. I only eat as much as my body needs. I can’t really eat beyond that point. If I’m full, I’m full. I can’t help that and I’m certainly not going to force myself.

                      C. Fair enough, lol. I didn’t even open Pandora’s Box yet and you’re already getting scared =3=

                      I figured if anything, the Internet would have desensitized you by now :p

                      A. Something like that. She offered to give me a BJ every day if I went to church camp with her during one Summer. I turned her offer down though since I was going through my “Atheist phase” at the time, lol.

                      B. I’d force feed you a knife if you did ^w^

                      C. Lol ya rite >.>

                      C. What? I am a virgin. I wouldn't lie about that. At least not lying and saying I wasn't. What would the point in that be.

            God damnit Pizza Hut US. Get your shit together!

    • McPoo

      They have this in the UK, it’s really not as nice as it looks.

      I had it not long ago, it was severely underwhelming. The burgers are a lot smaller than they look there, but the pizza bit is also tiny, and the burgers themselves are really very plain.

      • Ghost Doge

        I figured that it’d be small just based on the picture. More or less the reason why I said I’ll take two, though I’d probably take two even if they weren’t tiny :D

        Far as being underwhelming, I’m not really a picky eater when it comes to contents or flavor, so if it happens to taste a little bland, it’s nothing that a healthy dose of hot sauce can’t fix!

        • McPoo

          That’s true, I used loads of garlic mayo, myself :p

          It wasn’t terrible or anything, just really disappointing compared to the picture lol. I know it never looks like the pic anyway, but this was particularly noticeable.

          Personally I prefer a nice stuffed crust as it’s much easier for dipping.

          • Ghost Doge

            Stuffed crust is great, but I don’t really dip my pizza. It tends to get messy that way so I just put whatever sauce on the top and go at it. If it’s thin crust and not overloaded with toppings, folding makes it even easier but I suppose that’s all down to personal preference at that point :D

        I’ve been trying to recapture that joy by trying a few of the recent Fifa games but it just hasn’t been working for me.

                    • bloodiOS

                      Please, I already took a regular shower earlier. This is meant to refresh the mind.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      I feel ya. That’s one of the reasons why I love rain :D

                    • bloodiOS

                      Rain is nice. But sitting outside while it’s raining would make you look some bum who just got NTR’d.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      Then I must confuse the shit out of people because every time it rains, I go outside and just stand around, looking up with the biggest fucking smile on my face. LOVE IT!

                    • bloodiOS

                      I’d imagine that they’d be giggling. They would be thinking that you got it so hard and so many times that it screwed with your mind. They might even call 911 xD

                      …. It’s happened before >.>

                      Someone reported a ‘suspicious individual loitering by the lake’. I was just standing there enjoying the damn rain! Cops rolled up on me and started asking questions, almost ruined my good mood!

          • Gigus

            I only raged alittle because the game is really fun. I somewhat regret/glad I overlooked it though. Picked it up for 14 bucks.

          • Ghost Doge

            When I first got into Demon’s Souls (actually got into it, not the first time I tried it) I got upset when I lost 5000 souls on 1-1. Then I played for a couple more hours and laughed at how silly those 5000 souls were :D

            • Gigus

              Then you got mad when you lost 500k souls.

            • bloodiOS

              Heh, I used to cry at losing 2,000 souls. Those were the days.

      Good. Now Japan can rest assured and make some games for it!

  • bloodiOS

    Why is console gaming dying? Well, there are two reasons:

    • The PSVita is selling like shit!
    • The PS4 is selling like crazy!

    In Latin and Italian, Vita means life. The PSVita, a system that represents life, is currently struggling to maintain its own on a daily basis. This is already a sign from above that console gaming is dying.Then we have the PlayStation 4. The number 4 sounds very similar to death in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. For a console that reeks of death to be selling like crazy is already another worrisome sign from above. As we all know, the PS4’s supply is struggling to meet the consumers’ demand. People simply can’t wait to get themselves a PS4, which also means that they simply can’t wait for the death of console gaming to come.CONSOLE GAMING IS DOOMED!
    (God: Just according to keikaku.)

      Reading this cheered me up, thank you Bloodios :)

    • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

      lol, what happened?

      • Pyrofrost

        They fucked me out of $84.39 in a cancellation.

        • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

          Wow I’m sorry to hear that. :(

          Never had any bad experiences with them so far, will be more cautious in future.

          • Pyrofrost

            Neither have I, this situation with them has really taken me by surprise. I’ve been doing business with them for about 10 years, in my past experience, their customer service has always been exceptional. So I really don’t know what to say about the current situation.

            I will just say, be sure when you place an order; and if you change your mind, approach the cancellation process cautiously.

        • Gigus

          What were you pre-ordering?

          • Pyrofrost

            Sengoku Musou 4; I was more or less opting out to wait a few months and see if we got a confirmation West.
            Meanwhile, I was just going to order something else.

            • Gigus

              Hmm… I see. Thats disappointing though. Were you able to get a full refund from your other order?

              • Pyrofrost

                There was never another order. There was only one, and I didn’t get a refund. That money went up in smoke.

                • Gigus

                  Damn. Thats pure bs. So there is no way for you to get that money back?

                  • Pyrofrost

                    Oh, I have all my records. I will just file a claim with Paypal and it will be done, and I can get that money back.

                    It should not have gone this far through. I shouldn’t need to go to Paypal and file a claim.

                    • Gigus

                      Well at least you got a back up plan.

        • Budgiecat

          this happened with me last year with FotNS 2 and I complained and threatened and they….gave me store credit…and sent me the wrong game but I returned it

          • Pyrofrost

            Yeah, it sucks when these kinds of things happen. I’m just glad we have options when importing now, we’re fortunate with that.

    Hey @disqus_voCW1a6ZL1:disqus Dog, have you opened your ps2 games yet?
    http://gematsu.com/2014/02/open-forum-083#comment-1252634722

    • Ghost Doge

      Still sealed and sexy! I’ve been trying to focus on Bravely Default. I say ‘trying’ because I end up sneaking some SSX and Tenchu in there every now and again <.<

      • Gigus

        Ah, I see. I only ask because I just bought a brand new ps2 game recently. I opened it and everything was new except I noticed something on the hub (center of the disc). It had minor to noticeable scuffs on it.

        Do you think I’m just being anal or should I actually worry.

        • Ghost Doge

          Depending on the game and where you bought it, it was most likely unsealed (probably for an inspection if it’s an old one) and then resealed. It’s labeled as new because whoever sold it to you probably considered it to be in near-perfect condition and they probably didn’t want to deal with people asking questions if it were labeled as ‘Like New’ :P

          That said, depending on where the scuffs were, it might’ve occurred from the case being mishandled. On the rare occasion that I buy a music CD, the chances of having a few of the plastic teeth broken are pretty damn high. Granted, the cases are designed differently but nothing is foolproof :D

          • Gigus

            It wasn’t resealed though and I really doubt the seller would lie to me since I’ve always bought games from them before. This is just the only time I bought a ps2 game from them.

            As far as the game being mishandled theory goes, it might be a possiblity. I’ve bought a ton of anime dvds before and they’ve all had scratches on the center of the disc but the disc itself that carries all the data are unscathed. This is when the price of dvds started dropping due blu-ray and the HD-DVD format wars. I might as well just ask them.

      I’m going to pre-order it as soon as it’s up on Amazon.

      I want to see some actual gameplay first, but I’ll probably buy it eventually when it goes on sale. Haven’t even played Arkham Origins yet >.>

      On another note, I love how thugs magically forget that they have guns once Batman rolls up. “Hey there’s the dude who’s been trained in several styles of martial arts, let’s punch him!”

      • LordKaiser

        That reminds me of MGSR where suddenly because Raiden use a high frequency blade now the PMCs want to use swords instead of guns.

    Soooo… Yeah. For whatever reason, I randomly downloaded UDK (Unreal Development Kit) earlier. I’ll be happy if I can even make a functioning room within a week, lol.

    I just figured it couldn’t hurt to mess around with since it’s free and all, but I’m not really good with game development and such. I’m more of an idea guy, not a developer. Still, maybe I can put something together with it.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Unreal hmm… Unity is a lot easier to work with from what I have heard.

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

        I’ve heard pros and cons for each. I may just grab Unity too while I’m at it and see for myself.

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

          Hmm… well Unity is what my campus uses for game development.

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

            Actually, Unity may be better for different types of games. It actually seems more plausible to make an RPG in Unity as opposed to UE.

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

              Right, well that is what my classmates are mostly working on is RPGs. xD

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

                Just at first glance, it definitely looks easier for that sort of genre. UE is more for FPS, but can be made for RPG or action, it just requires more effort through scripting.

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

                  I could do either with either, but that is because I am a very experienced programmer. I would probably just build an engine from the ground up in C# if I wanted to make a game other than my web based ones.

                      Mhm. There is a reason that people form teams. xD Personally I could handle everything but art by myself so I would just use free models or make my own shitty versions or get a friend to help with that one specific thing.

    – ‘After completing Lords of Shadows 2 MercurySteam has fired 35 workers, and it’s embarrasing that no website or journalist is talking about that. More firings are expected to come in the following days.’

      This dude sounds like a fucking tool. If anybody needs to lose their job, it’s him.

      EDIT: This would be like if you were a manager of… We’ll say KFC. You decide to release a new product for a limited time and instruct your workers to cook it, then food critics give it terrible reviews and you lose business.

      After the promo is over, you fire your cooks for cooking the meal you told them to make. Yeah… That makes a whole lot of sense right there.

          It was just an example. I couldn’t care less for either of those. Well, I guess that’s not entirely true. I do like KFC’s ‘double down’, but I’ve only had one maybe five times, I guess?

          Still, I thought that was better than any of their other items anyway.

  • MrFinalgamer

    i feel extremely sorry for all Canadians here, but it looks like the drop in the canadian dollar has now fully affected games now, Infamous SS will be $69.99 (Titanfall has been unscathed for now)

    http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/03/04/games-getting-a-price-hike-in-canada-infamous-second-son-jumps-up-by-10-titanfall-unaffected-for-now/

    • new_tradition

      I saw that. Really pisses me off. When the Canadian dollar is doing well, even higher than the USD (yes, it happens), there’s barely any change in our favour, but almost always we suffer when our dollar is weaker >_>

      PSN has been good so far with the no tax thing, but I fear that might end one day.

      I’ve already imported EU version of some games just because even after shipping, they were bafflingly cheaper than simply walking into a store and buying it with taxes.

      Anyways, just more reason for me to avoid a PS4 until FFXV is out, maybe even after that *sighs*

      • Pyrofrost

        You have my sympathy, I’m really sorry about the situation you’re experiencing.

        What surprises me more than anything is why they are suddenly taking such drastic measures with this. For the past several years, the CAD and the USD has been a fucking yo-yo with each other; and it’s not like it’s heading to stabilization, though I haven’t seen it at 0.9:1 in a while.

        Is there something going on in Canada atm to cause this?

        • new_tradition

          Nothing really stands out to me. Job cuts maybe?

          • Pyrofrost

            I guess, it just seems rather odd to me.
            I mean it wasn’t long ago that the CAD was 1:1 with the USD and even worth a little more. These measures just seem a bit sudden.

            I mean, in a couple of months, we could be about 1:1 again; and I doubt they would just suddenly return prices to normal if that were the case.

            • new_tradition

              Reading a little more into articles, and apparently some people are blaming the USD just being stronger over-all.

              The hell is up with the market if other country’s successes is fucking things up for others? D:<

              • Pyrofrost

                I see.

                I can’t really say to be honest though :(
                I’m not really a wiz on economics, the only reason I know what I do know about Canada is because I’ve traveled there a lot; and I have some good friends there. I hope this doesn’t become a trend though. :(

      • Ghost Doge

        I’m willing to strike a deal with you where I buy games and mail them to you, and in return you send me burger pizza >.>

      • Elvick

        yeah is sucks how the Canadian dollar can be on par, or better than USD, but we don’t get any benefit from it.

        Yet now, we’re being smashed with inflation. Sucks. It’s going to affect what I can buy and that sucks. D:<

        And if it bounces back, I'm sure it'll take them forever to decrease prices.

        • new_tradition

          Seriously, that’s what I’m dreading the most. Once retailers realize people are used to paying more for games, they have little reason price them accordingly :(

    77% of respondents could not identify what SEO means. SEO stands for “Search-Engine Optimization”

    27% identified “gigabyte” as an insect commonly found in South
    America. A gigabyte is a measurement unit for the storage capacity of an electronic device.

    42% said they believed a “motherboard” was “the deck of a cruise
    ship.” A motherboard is usually a circuit board that holds many of the
    key components of a computer.

    23% thought an “MP3″ was a “Star Wars” robot. It is actually an audio file.

    18% identified “Blu-ray” as a marine animal. It is a disc format typically used to store high-definition videos.

    15% said they believed “software” is comfortable clothing. Software is a general term for computer programs.

    12% said “USB” is the acronym for a European country. In fact, USB is a type of connector.

    Well, my battle with Play-Asia finally come to a close.

    After emailing them back and forth for hours yesterday, after they tried to screw me out of a refund they owed me (even after I showed them records); I basically closed with telling them that I would never do business with them again unless they were willing to correct their error themselves, without me having to file a claim.

    After about 24 hours, I finally received an email back and they refunded the money they owed.

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

      >After about 24 hours, I finally received an email back and they refunded the money they owed.

      You’re still not doing business with them though, I imagine, lol. I always thought their customer service was a little shady anyway… Especially since all of my e-mails would come back with:

      “Sincerely, George”, “Sincerely, Jennifer”, “Sincerely, Paul”, “Sincerely, Sara”, etc.

      I mean, sure… There are foreigners that work overseas, obviously, but come on. You can’t honestly expect me to believe those are your real names, lol. At least the customer service reps from CDJapan are more honest with me.

      One of the female reps that goes by Hashimoto-san knows me on a first name basis and changed her signature from Hashimoto-san to Hashimoto-chan and adds hearts to the message now when she’s the one that replies back to my queries, lol.

        Back when I started with them, there were few sites to import through. Thankfully now, I have a great deal more options to work with. So I will be sticking to places such a AmiAmi, NipponYasan, and CDJapan; basically just dealing directly with Japanese business.

      I’ve only heard of it/seen it through Youtube vids.

      It still kinda baffles me they bothered making an XBox game despite how dead that system was. Especially in Japan. And of course, since it was never localized, I doubt anyone here played it since teh region lock.
      I liked the third person aspect of it, but overall it looked really low budget. Obviously the $ went to better games like SMT III, DDS I & II, and later on Devil Summoner I & II and Persona 3 & 4…

    And I’d like to not pay that extra $10 at all.

    • Ghost Doge

      Keep playing. I felt almost the same until I got to some of the side quests in Chapter 2. They don’t exactly send chills down my spine but it’s fair to say that the story has its dark side. Slightly. It’s difficult to explain without any caffeine :D

        sure hope you’re right. i find the characters nice enough, though love how smug Ringabell can get. i just hope the story gets more interesting =/

        • Ghost Doge

          I can’t really comment on the overall plot yet (played for about 15/20 hours and my village is already completely restored, mind you) and I’m only on Chapter 2 so far. The story, short as it has been due to my habit of avoiding progress like the plague, has been decent but those side quests, man. One of the first ones is kind of goofy, almost like an episode of the Scooby show, but there’s definitely some evil people in there. Or as Edea would say, black as pitch :D

          Far as Ringabel, I liked him at first but his attitude got a little annoying at certain times. I’m the same as him, to an extent, so I’m not judging. I just know when it’s time to stop being a pervy smartass and get serious :P

            the way you’re describing the side quests makes me remember good ol’ FFXII. now you’re getting me hyped for them XD i’ll definitely keep playing, if only for how good the battle system is and these damn side quests you’re mentioning!

              Take that with a grain of salt. Just because I found ’em amusing doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll love them as well, so don’t hold me accountable should things develop in an unfavorable fashion :D

              • MrFinalgamer

                i’ll be sure to go in with salt in hand!

      It’s definitely a throwback to SNES style JRPG story telling, thats for sure. That was one of its charms for me personally; but it’s definitely not one size fits all.

        weird, because i love Chrono Trigger, and FFIV, and VI…i’ll definitely keep playing though, just i thought it would have me hooked the second i started playing.

        • Pyrofrost

          Those were some of the very best of that generation though (argued by some as the very best ever made).
          I understand the hype and Bravely Default is definitely good, but it isn’t that good, lol.

          I mean, we don’t expect every new baseball player to become Babe Ruth, right?

          • MrFinalgamer

            i guess i need to expand my knowledge of SNES JRPGs XD
            i started playing them mostly PSOne onwards, so i guess i’m a bit spoiled on that regard…

            • Pyrofrost

              I wouldn’t say all that, I don’t really know what you know about them xD

              I’m just saying we can’t expect every new game to measure up to the legendary or the hall of fame titles, that’s all ;)

                Crazy talk! EVERYTHING SHOULD BE AN IMPROVEMENT! STEPS FORWARD, NOT BACK!

                      WHAT’D YOU SAY ABOUT MY MOM?! WHY I OUGHTA. Back in my day we respected our elders! And we didn’t have these damn fancy shmancy videa thingies. Back in my day all we had got to play with were sticks, and we liked it!

                    • bloodiOS

                      Hah, back in the day you geezers all used to smack me with your polished wooden canes, but no more, now I smack you with my bare hands.
