    That whole thing about never working with children or animals…. Damn true far as the ‘children’ part goes >.>

    My friend wanted to do a little renovating so I took the project on. Figured it was the least I could do since she’s letting me live here for as long as I want :P Finally on the painting stage today and I had to pull double duty as a babysitter. Got more paint on me than on the walls. And little A decided she wanted to help out by painting the walls and furniture in the other room when I was cleaning some of the previous mess <.<

    I’m so excited for the next Hamatora episode to learn who is Hajimechan. After all the ending says she is the key of the story

    So Marie Rose coming to DOA5U on March 25th for $5.99, who’s going get it?

    http://www.joystiq.com/2014/03/05/marie-rose-joins-dead-or-alive-5-ultimates-roster-on-march-25/

    Her fighting reminds me of Lili from Tekken.

    • karmacoma

      While the games themselves are still fun, man, Team Ninja is really lacking in originality since Itagaki and crew left. But I guess it’s not that surprising. It wasn’t just Itagaki that left, but all the creative. Producers, artists, animators, gameplay directors. It was basically the technical guys and protege Hayashi that stayed at TN, which is why the games still look pretty and feel fun and fluid, but are perhaps losing a bit of the charm and creativity of the Itagaki-helmed titles.

      I heard this DLC was a little more romantic between Two and Cent? Is that true?

        Yep, shows you how they developed their relationship

      This is going to be great! When I first saw One….. I was thinking *that I secretly want her to be the playable character. And then all the others as DLC now too! HYPED!

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

        Ya! I really liked playing her ^ ^

  • Solomon_Kano

    PS4 came in the mail. Warframe is actually pretty fun. I was pleasantly surprised.

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

      I’ve been hearing some great things from my friend.

      • Solomon_Kano

        For being a F2P game, it certainly isn’t light on content.

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

          I might look into it when I got a PS4.

          • Solomon_Kano

            You really should, supposing you like 3rd-person shooters. Worst case scenario, you just lose a bit of time :P

    • TheExile285

      Did you order it after the Arkham Knight reveal?

      • Solomon_Kano

        The day after, yea.

        • Budgiecat

          It uses Unreal 3 engine

          disappoint

          • z_merquise

            The newest Guilty Gear uses Unreal Engine and it looked so impressive.

            It just depend on how developers use the engine. And I found the Arkham games visually good.

            • Budgiecat

              That’s also a cross gen game using 2D art design so really not as needed.

              Arkham Knight is not

          • karmacoma

            I wouldn’t care so much if Unreal 3 ran well on PS4, as it does on PC. On PC you don’t really have to deal with texture streaming issues like you do on PS3 and 360. But if Thief is any indication, it doesn’t look as if that’s been improved any on PS4.

            • Budgiecat

              Thief is cross gen though

              • karmacoma

                That’s just more reason why it should be less trouble for the PS4 (and XB1) to render.

                • Budgiecat

                  When I say cross gen I mean to say that the main game is made with the 7th gen in mind then just upscaled to the 8th gen version and then also the resources are spread thin and as such you dont get as dedicated as a product.

                  • karmacoma

                    Yeah, but those same resources are going to the PC version, and PC versions of Unreal games have never had texture streaming issues, even on older U3 games where it was most noticeable. Seeing how the PS4 is using PC architecture and has 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM, it really shouldn’t be an issue for the PS4 either.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Doesn’t really matter its less effort overall

    • z_merquise

      So any games you’re looking forward to for PS4?

    • bloodiOS

      Gonna try Knack? ;)

      • Solomon_Kano

        The demo didn’t impress, but I’ll probably pick it up down the line.

      • Elvick

        Shoo.

  • Budgiecat
    • MrFinalgamer

      someone’s a bit too excited about this movie…

      • Budgiecat

        Just be sure to get me that toy when it comes out tanks

    • bloodiOS

      So the Americans will murder Godzilla in this movie, yes?

      • Budgiecat

        Amurdercans?

      • Ghost Doge

        You god damn right. AIN’T NO OVERGROWN GEICO RUININ’ MY COUNTRY! ‘MERICUH!

        • bloodiOS

          I hope big G will snack on a couple of millions of canines before they take him down. How’s the new chapter of SnK for ya?

          • Ghost Doge

            No clue. About to read it now. Just finally got the internet back up and running. My phone died earlier and my charger’s MIA. Plus I had to make dinner so now it’s finally me time! :D

            • bloodiOS

              What did you make?

              • Ghost Doge

                Three pizzas and I grilled up some chicken. Made some steak kebabs while I had the grill going too :P

                • bloodiOS

                  Nice. Me, I’d just have rice and salt (and maybe with some pepper too.) If I feel good, I’ll fry it, if not, I’ll just eat it straight from the steam pot. I’ll just snack on cucumbers and tomato over the course of the days for other nutrients.

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

                    Do you live in the jungle?

                    • bloodiOS

                      *LOL* no, I simply have a small budget.

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

                      You can has my monies for food ;w;

                    • bloodiOS

                      Rice, tomato, and cucumber aren’t food?

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

                      More food.

                    • bloodiOS

                      I’ll grab some chickens when there’s a discount going on. The preparation is a pain in the ass though.

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

                      …You mean live chickens? What continent do you live on?!

                      XD

                    • bloodiOS

                      What?! No way! I’m talking about the process of thoroughly flavoring the meat and let it sit in the fridge overnight before preparing to cook it.

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

                      Oh, I thought you meant like… Chasing a chicken down, grabbing it, then chopping its head off or something, lol. Reminded me of that scene from Rocky where he was chasing a chicken.

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

                  • Ghost Doge

                    Sounds like something I’d normally eat. I’m in the mood to spoil myself and the people I live with, so I decided to make something fancy-ish. For what it’s worth though, you should consider increasing your food budget a bit. Y’know, spice it up a little! Maybe spoil yourself as well :D

                    • bloodiOS

                      Well, I can always drop by the buffet close to my apartment when they have some sort of promotion going on (the price would be under $10, so.)

                    • Ghost Doge

                      There you go! As long as the selection is good. Or rather, as long as they have something you like, pig out! That’s my general strategy when I visit a buffet. Balanced meal? LOLNO. Three plates of fried rice, meat (not too picky on the animal it came from, so long as there’s plenty of it), and egg rolls, with a large helping of hot sauce and coffee? YES PLZ. I’ll hate myself when I consider just how many hours at the gym I just earned myself, but it was worth it!

                    • bloodiOS

                      Fuck pig. I’m all about super rare steak (Chie would be proud.)

                    • Ghost Doge

                      HANDS OFF MY CHIE >8[

                      On a more serious note, I just realized that I subconsciously made steak kebabs mainly for my friend due to the fact she reminds me of Chie >.> If you wanna get technical, Chie reminds me of her, but you get the idea!

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

                      HANDS OFF THE PANDA!

                    • Ghost Doge

                      Quiet, you!

                    • bloodiOS

                      … okay? By the way, I just realized I misunderstood your previous post. I was backing the car out, so I just sorta skimped through it.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      I assumed you were simply stating your preference on meat, what with me mentioning that I’m not at all picky :P

                    • bloodiOS

                      So, anyway, you like Chie because she reminds you of this gal. So now that you’ve already liked Chie, your friend now reminds you of her, and so you made steak for her. Hmm…

                    • Ghost Doge

                      SO WHAT IF I WANTED TO SEE HER EAT MY MEAT? THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH WATCHING!

                    • bloodiOS

                      Ah, so you wanted her to eat your MEAT? ;D

                    • Ghost Doge

                      FUCKIN’ RIGHT!

                      Do you have any idea how hard it was to get my hands on that steak?! Better eat every last bite!

                    • bloodiOS

                      Better lick and slurp it while she’s at it too =)

                    • Ghost Doge

                      And no napkins!

                      If she gets meat juice all over her face, sure as hell better use her hands to wipe it away then lick it all off! NO WASTING!

                    • bloodiOS

                      She should just be doing the double peace sign while you’re licking it off her.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      Hey! Hey. Hey…..

                      Now that’s just getting weird. Her kid’s sitting right there!

                    • bloodiOS

                      Getting a head-start on their learning is never bad.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      The little one can learn how to properly eat meat when she’s old enough to understand! For now all she needs to know is that the puppy’s into some weird shit! :D

                    • bloodiOS

                      Well, shits are never not weird.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      Truer words are rarely spoken. Especially when it comes to my best friend. He has the uncanny ability to fill up the toilet…… I’ll spare you further details >.>

                    • bloodiOS

                      Well, I used to do that myself, until I adapted xD

                    • Ghost Doge

                      I used to have some pretty strange ones myself due to poor habits as a teenager. Everything’s all squared away now though! Unless I go to a buffet. God help the soul that will be responsible for cleaning up that mess.

                    • bloodiOS

                      Are we talking about the quantity or the quality?

                    • Ghost Doge

                      Both. My insides are fine with whatever nutrition I get but on the rare occasion that I visit a buffet, I better be near a toilet within 20 minutes after leaving, that’s for damn sure :D

                    • bloodiOS

                      Unless they’re rock solid, I can’t imagine them not going through.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      You underestimate the efficiency (or lack thereof) of my interior! It’s probably the hot sauce though. Normally I like hot sauce with just about anything but the sheer amount of food I consume when the supply isn’t limited is probably enough to put less resilient individuals in the hospital. Combine that with an equally unnerving portion of hot sauce and you’ve got the recipe for a bowel evacuation of biblical proportions!

                    • bloodiOS

                      Just rapidly flush as they start flowing.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      Generally that’s solid advice, but not all toilets are created equal. Some can handle it, others succumb to the pressure of the task at hand!

                    • bloodiOS

                      Sounds like you need an outhouse instead xD

                    • Ghost Doge

                      If I went to a buffet often enough, that just might be the solution I’d go with! I’m not a huge fan of having someone else take care of my shit….. Quite literally.

    • new_tradition

      Ehhh, it’s not that bad. The black label is pretty sexy, but at least they picked a nice shade of blue ^^;

      • bloodiOS

        But it doesn’t go well with the black and red scheme of the box art.

        • new_tradition

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

        Pfft. I’m OCD, but most of my library consists of imports. They just slap a different color on it depending on the rating, lol. So I’ve got stacks of rainbows consisting of green, orange, dark blue, red, and black all over.

          I liked it. :

      • Elvick

        It sucks for me, because that’s me.

        They did it with PSP spines too. D:<

    • karmacoma

      I like the blue, but I’m also the weird one who likes XBOX’s green boxes/labels. I don’t care if the label matches a game’s logo. I like consistent labeling company-wide, so I like the new blue scheme Sony’s using lately.

      • bloodiOS

        I see. Well, I’ve always preferred the black shade so I was never really fond of the Vita’s and PS4’s blue one.

        • karmacoma

          To each their own. We all have our preferences. I like consistency, I guess, even at the sake of graphic design conformity.

      • Six

        I love the 360’s cases. Even after the redesign, they still look pretty uniform on a shelf, minus the little rings on the upper part of the spine.

    • MrFinalgamer

      i guess they just want to make all playstation games look blue after so many years of using black labels

    • kefert

      Can’t stand it either! Ps3 and ps4 games having different color schemes was so much better imo.

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

    Any of you guys familiar with HAWKEN on Steam? I’m looking for a new mech game to play, but I’m not really sure about this one. I’m just wanting to know if it’s at least decent and has some balance to it since it’s F2P. Also, a customization system would be nice too, but it doesn’t have to be ridiculous like Armored Core.

    • Budgiecat

      I think that Strike Suit Zero looks cool

      • bloodiOS

        What does that have to do with Hawken?

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

          I know, right? It’s like someone in the room saying, “I’m thinking about getting this car. You know anything about it?”, then someone else saying, “I like pizza.”, lol.

          • Budgiecat

            But I do like Pizza

                  Not any more anyway, lol.

        • Budgiecat

          because he mentioned looking for a new mech game to play and that is a new mech game. It may not be Hawken but its a new mech game nonetheless

          • bloodiOS

            It’s not like he asked you to give him some suggestions. He specifically asked if any of us here is familiar with Hawken.

            • Budgiecat

              Well it was either that or I was going to type Stephen Hawkins

              • bloodiOS

                Should’ve went with S. Hawkins then xD

    • karmacoma

      I’ve only played it once, but it’s fun and fast paced. I think there’s a fair amount of customization but I didn’t really get into that. It looks great if you have a decent GPU too.

    • TheExile285

      Says a lot about their priorities. FFX/X-2 will probably be the last game they release on Vita outside of Japan at this rate.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Which is hilarious when you consider that it’s only the second one.

      • MrFinalgamer

        just like Solomon said, isn’t that, like, their second game for vita? the dream of a localization for Type-0 becomes more, and more distant…

        • Elvick

          2nd localized
          3rd overall.

          Lords of Apocalypse (Japan)
          Army Corps of Hell (WW)
          FFX|X-2 (WW)

          Sad support. Even Sega has put out more on Vita.

      • Pyrofrost

        The amount of FFX/X-2 copies sold on the Vita will probably have a great deal of influence on this. I’m getting it on Vita personally, but I am expecting the vast majority to get it on PS3.

        The Vita just isn’t what Western gamers want. It would be cool if it was; but unfortunately, we avid Vita supporters on the internet represent an extremely small vocal minority.

      • Elvick

        I expect it to be their last Vita game period.

  • Tac-Mex

    Am i the only one who is worried about the future of Sony?

    Granted, they have sold over 6 million PS4 and that’s awesome but there are other things that are worrying me:

    >Sony’s Santa Monica studio lay offs and new IP cancelled
    >Sony selling their buildings
    >Writer of Uncharted abandoning the studio
    >Jack Tretton leaving SCE

    I don’t know about you guys, but i am very worried.

    • karmacoma

      Most importantly, they shut down Studio Liverpool, developers of their greatest IP, Wipeout.

    • Pyrofrost

      I’m not worried about anything until it directly effects me personally.
      Until then, I game on.

    • Elvick

      The new IP was too much like Destiny. It’s just one of those shitty situations where no one wins. Had it come out, layoffs would have happened anyway after it tanked for being a “Destiny ripoff”.

      Who cares? People put too much stock in owning a building. If owning that building costs more than renting one, then why wouldn’t they sell them? And if you’re referring to the Sony stores, who really gives a fuck? Specialty shops in an online shopping dominated world are bad business.

      Nothing showed she “abandoned” the studio. The only indications we’ve had was she was “forced” out. Hardly the same thing. You didn’t abandon ship if you were shoved off.

      He’s been there for almost 20 years. He could have left for any number of reasons. And he said himself that he’s leaving PlayStation when it’s strong.

      So no.

  • Six

    Is there a better example of a vocal minority in gaming than the Shenmue fanbase?

    • Budgiecat

      Thats not a vocal minority

      Thats the voice of God….

    • karmacoma

      Is the Shenmue fanbase still vocal? I’ve been a fan since day one and would absolutely LOVE to see a Shenmue III, but I gave up like 7 years ago.

      • Six

        Vocal and somewhat delusional. I can across a topic on NeoGAF the other day seriously asking why Shenmue III hasn’t had a Kickstarter.

        • Budgiecat

          Kickstarters dont always need to generate the full budget for a game. Look at the Kingdom Come RPG title; that kickstarter (or whatever they used) was merely to present a case for their financial backer that there was an interest.

          Though concerning AAA Japanese developers, they wouldnt use something like Kickstarter anyway…I think Inafune touched upon that recently though I forget his exact words

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

      The Dark Cloud fanbase?

      • Elvick

        That’s a good one. Every Level-5 facebook post has them in there. I want it too, but I think it’s more Sony’s call since they own the IP so I think their effort is misplaced.

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

          Maybe it will be one of the IPs they revive :p

    • Pyrofrost

      The Final Fantasy VII fanbase?

      • LordKaiser

        I wonder what will happen if FFVII gets remade for the smartphones.

        • Pyrofrost

          The internet will meltdown, and I will be in bliss due to everyone’s suffering.

        • Nice Boat

          Heads will roll.

        • Elvick

          They wouldn’t bother to remake it. They’d just port it.

      • Six

        Minority? I dunno. I’d say the fanbase for VI is smaller and a hell of a lot louder.

        • Pyrofrost

          I’d say at one time FFVII’s was a vocal majority, but most have moved on.

        • Nice Boat

          and a hell of a lot louder.
          You have a point there my good sir.

          • Arcana Gear

            You shouldnt take one person behaviour for the entire fanbase, i’m a huge fan but i dont go dismissing others FF like the person i know you’re talking about.

            • Nice Boat

              I don’t know. I don’t remember the OT praising FF7 but more like the opposite. Same happened in Animesuki. About how FF7 was not good and the classic ones were masterpieces.

              • Arcana Gear

                well its more classic elitists than FFVI… but i get what you mean, but i wouldn’t call the classic fans a minority, they are a good chunk of the fanbase.

              • Pyrofrost

                I’m a pretty big fan of FF6 personally. I like FF4-6 to be honest. I also like FF9-14.
                FF7 and 8 are my least favorite in the franchise. I absolutely hate FF8; but I’m more ‘meh’ about FFVII.

    • DarthBrian

      people who hate Final Fantasy XIII are a pretty loud vocal minority.

      • Budgiecat

        minority? More like majority…..

        • Pyrofrost

          I disagree

          • Six
            • DarthBrian

              That music fits what’s going on when you’re riding a particular Chocobo in a particular time-period.

              It’s all about context.

          • Budgiecat

            saying many people hate FF XIII is like saying women have a vagina

            • Pyrofrost

              I disagree

              • Budgiecat

                women have a vagina!

                • bloodiOS

                  And cat meat is delicious!

                  • Budgiecat

                    I highly doubt you’ve eaten pussy before!

                    • bloodiOS

                      You would be surprised xD

                • Pyrofrost

                  I disagree

                  • Budgiecat

                    What do they have then?? It’s certainly not a floppy penis!

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

                      I wouldn’t be so sure >.>

                    • Pyrofrost

                      I agree!

        • DarthBrian

          Nope. Minority.

          • Six

            Eh, I think it varies depending on where you go. I mean, I think a JP oriented forum like this or Siliconera would be more inclined to like the game, while a place like NeoGAF would completely and utterly despise it.

            • DarthBrian

              You mean the neoGaf where if one particular mod hates a Final Fantasy game then that automatically means everybody else there automatically trusts their opinion of said game and bash it without even playing it themselves? :p

              • Six

                I just calls it like I sees it.

                While I don’t think the games are nearly as bad as some say, I think it’s a little sad that LR can get 7s and people say it “isn’t that bad”.

                I mean, it’s FINAL FANTASY. That used to mean a lot more than it does now.

                • DarthBrian

                  The problem is FFXIII, though a great game, was overrated by a lot of websites. So when the other two came out, they gave them more reasonable scores.

                  IMO.

                  Hard for me to say how I would judge LR because I’m still playing it. I’m enjoying the hell out of it so far though.

          • Budgiecat

            Okay maybe in Toryama’s office and his bedroom FF XIII is liked but outside that, no

            • Six

              I like to blame Final Fantasy XIII for my nearly-complete apathy for the entire JRPG genre (?).

              Man, I can’t think of a single game more that was more disappointing.

      • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

        That would not be a minority, many people who play it still talk trash about it.

      • Pekola

        Lots of opinions on how his hobby is dead and the old stuff is much much better.

        Idk. I laughed at some parts, but others I’m just like…pls.

  • Tac-Mex

    Xbone is cheaper than PS4 in my country

    They are giving FIFA 14 and 1 year of free xbox live gold for 520 dollars

    • bloodiOS

      Go pick one up for Titanfall?

      • Tac-Mex

        Nah, i don’t want a NSA spybox machine, i’d rather get it for 360

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

          Spoiler: The NSA doesn’t need that to spy on you.

          • kefert

            Boom.

        • $18114340

          Be careful. IIRC nobody knows anything about the 360 version of Titanfall, it’s being outsourced, it’s not even coming out in the same timeframe. Not that I would recommend a XBO either, but let’s get something straight — Microsoft claimed that they would not hand over user data or data gleaned through Kinect to the NSA.

          That doesn’t matter, because if the NSA comes knocking, they are legally obligated to give that information up. The NSA has already demonstrated that they can tap into Kinect whether Microsoft gives permission or not.

          And it’s not just Microsoft either. Any corporation that deals with this sort of information is subject to monitoring, no matter where they are in the world, by parties such as the NSA and beyond. That goes for Sony, that goes for Nintendo, that goes for Google and Facebook and Disqus. That goes for the computer you typed this on and it goes for your cell phone if you have one. Not wanting to buy an “NSA spybox machine” is pretty much an impossibility unless you want to cut yourself off from modern civilization entirely.

          I get that it might be in jest, but I don’t like how some people actually take privacy issues as if they’re exclusive to the XBO.

          • Elvick

            The company doing the port does great port work. Bluepoint Games have done;

            God of War Collection
            ICO / SotC Collection
            MGS Collection (PS3/360)
            Flower (PS4/Vita)
            PS All-Stars Battle Royale (Vita)

            All good.

            My bet is that there’s not a huge downgrade on 360 and they want people to not see it, so they buy an Xbone for it. Rather than buy the perfectly fine 360 version.

  • Tac-Mex

    Is Titanfall going to boost Xbone sales?

    • Six

      Yes, but not to the levels that Xbox loyalists think it will.

    • bloodiOS

      Oh yeah, it’s going to push at least ten million units in the first week.

      • DarthBrian

        I hope you’re joking. :p

        • bloodiOS

          Do you really need to hope here?

          • DarthBrian

            Given our past discussions, I couldn’t really be sure, now could I? :p

            • bloodiOS

              What past discussions could that be?

              • DarthBrian

                I’m too tired to dig them out. >_>

                I’m sure you yelled at me about something. T_T

                • bloodiOS

                  Hmm… I might have, but I don’t hold grudges so don’t worry about it. Anyway, how does it really matter to what I said about Titanfall?

                  • DarthBrian

                    cuz 10 million is more than the total amount of PS4s that have been sold wordwide and that’s a silly number. :p
                    (Assuming you’re talking about console sales since the OP was talking about console sales.)

                    • bloodiOS

                      Which should immediate makes it obvious for you whether or not was I serious when I posted that ;P

    • AdamBoy64

      I’m thinking it will. Microsoft are marketing it well, as they do.
      They’re very good at it.

    • DarthBrian

      It’ll boost the sales and it’ll outsell PS4 in March. But it’s not going to catch up to PS4 worldwide sales if that’s what you’re asking.

    • Sevyne

      It will for that Month for sure, but not by the amount some people are expecting. Whether or not it can maintain that in the months after though is up in the air. They need to be aggressive with big releases ASAP. They won’t be able to piggyback on Titanfall for very long I don’t think.

  • Tac-Mex
    • Sae-Won Yoon

      Haha, oh wow, that takes me back.

  • Pyrofrost

    Man, playing P1 again really make me miss the whole conversing with demons mechanic. It would be cool if they could bring that back with P5

    • bloodiOS

      Two bad shadows are dumb and only move according to their instincts.

    • MrFinalgamer

      makes you wonder what the hell happened to the demons, after P2…
      and if they put that back, i bet P4 fanboys would complain about how it’s not like their godsend, Persona 4…

      • Pyrofrost

        P4 fanboys will be complaining about P5 regardless of what Atlus does. They’re basically the FFVII fanboys of the Persona series.

        • Six

          Because Persona 4 is awesome.

          As long as Persona 5 gives me another great cast of waifus, I’ll be set.

          • MrFinalgamer

            Persona 4 is great, but some people just treat it like the holy grail of the series/JRPG genre >_<

          • Pyrofrost

            I’m not saying anything bad about P4; I’m more talking about a portion of the P4 fanbase. P4 was a great game.

            • Six

              They are like Dark Souls fans. They are so obsessed that if the sequel isn’t just more of the same, they’ll throw a shit fit.

        • MrFinalgamer

          seeing comments of them on Persona articles reminds me how they hated SMT IV because it wasn’t like P4…

          • Pyrofrost

            Yeah, it’s a shame SMT IV wasn’t a slice-of-life, harem; with dungeon crawling as a side event. :p

            amirite~

    • Nice Boat

      As long as they aren’t as trolls as in Nocturne I would be happy. There demons simply bullied me while trying to make contact. Lost money, items, got insulted and even abandoned by those demons *tears falling*

      • Pyrofrost

        Yeah, the conversing can be a bit challenging, and they are pretty much the same in this one. Nocturne was great times though.

        How far have you gotten? Are you chasing the true ending?

        • Nice Boat

          No, it’s just they sometimes don’t care about the answers. I answered Jack Frost’s question in the two ways and he agreed to join. It’s more of a random factor. I would like to find the Neutral Ending rather than favoring any of the two sides and maybe even get the True Demon Ending but I heard that’s really challenging

          • Pyrofrost

            Snagging the true ending really isn’t any more challenging than just beating the game, you just need to kinda stay neutral from what I remember and complete all the steps.

    I’ve been on my ass for a month. I injured my foot early February.

    Hoping to go to the gym early tomorrow morning and get back into workout mode.

    What’s everyone else doing this weekend?

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

      How did you injure your foot?

      I plan on doing some gaming, as usual, for the weekend. I spoke with the President of my local fencing club, earlier today, about coming back though since I’m able to commit at a competitive level now. So, yeah, I’m thinking about going back to fencing, but that probably won’t start until Monday at the earliest.

      They have a class tomorrow, but that’s a little sudden, lol. If I don’t go back on Monday, I’ll probably just start next Saturday instead.

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        I was in the finals match of a heated game against the rival university when…

        lol

        Nope. I just fell down the stairs. xD Sucked. I was on crutches for two weeks, and now I’m still wearing a brace. I can walk at least, but it’s still a pain and I’m not supposed to walk very much. It’s sure taking its sweet time returning to normal.

        I figured I’d go to the gym tomorrow and use the exercise bike. At least that way I’m not putting much pressure on my foot, and I’m getting in some good cardio.

        Fencing sounds fun, though I’d probably suck at it. You must be good if you can compete competitively!

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

          That sucks. I actually have a friend that manages to fall up the stairs, lol. I need to start exercising my lower body soon though so my legs aren’t so sore when I start fencing again.

          The stance itself isn’t difficult, but doing it for a long period of time puts pressure on your legs and makes your calves sore and such after a while. It doesn’t take too terribly long to reach a national level in competition though… Maybe a year or two, depending on how much you train.

          I’ll never be part of an Olympic team or anything like that though. Those days are long behind me since I’m already 28, turning 29 this year, but fencing does allow you to still compete at the world level even up to your 80’s and 90’s. There was a guy at our club that was 87 or 88, can’t remember exactly, but he would basically stomp everyone in seconds, lol. The guy was crazy.

          He’s in his 90’s now, but I heard he’s not as active as he used to be, which is a shame. Still, fencing is the kind of sport where you can be beat by an old man or a little kid. It works for me mainly because it focuses on technique, which is what my body is more built for, rather than brute force. It’s also psychological as well, so that’s another reason I like it.

          It’s funny because if you talk to the members at the club, you’ll find that most of them were or are part of a chess club, debate team, etc. It’s just the kind of people that fencing attracts, but you’ll have some people that also simply do it for the exercise as well. I saw a few couples that would come in that were basically just there to work up a sweat every week, probably cause of husbands talking their wives into it or vice versa (you save money on a membership doing it that way too).

          • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

            That’s pretty interesting. I never really took a personal interest to fencing, but it does sound super intense. So I applaud your fencing successes, good sir.

            I would like to give it a go one day, though, if time allows it. Maybe I have a hidden ability waiting to awaken.

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

              Well, as long as I stick with it this time and actually go somewhere, I’ll be satisfied. Honestly, I’m just trying to get myself to be more productive and have human contact since I stay in my home 24/7 and the only people I talk with are online.

              While that may be all well and good, I just need something more in my life right now and I’m thinking this will do me some good.

      Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne. I’ve never played such a challenging RPG before. It’s like the Devil May Cry of RPGs. It’s challenging as heck but addicting.

        I think it was PrinceHeir posting in the last forum about Shin Megami Tensei NINE for the original Xbox.

                  He posted it on your site. He even said a turtle said he wanted it. He’s planning on taking it down soon since only 3 people bought it. Thanks for liking it though XD

                    • Gigus

                      Dats y i sed FUK SCOOL boi! XD Well you pretty prepare yourself, he will be posting more shirts soon. Hes really trying to meet the standards of teefury, riptapparel and theyetee. Unfortunately their bias seems to be more of a priority then seeing a shirt that is pretty good and would sell. Well thats what he thinks -__-. Though I’m starting to think they are biased towards artists that are just starting the t-shirt biz.

                    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

                      I like his more then most of Teefury’s.Most theirs suck

                    • Gigus

                      It got denied by all three of those sites. Thats why he opted out for teepublic since they print anything as long as you don’t violate terms of service.

                      Sadly he had a hard time advertising his shirt due to the price teepublic was offering. 14 dollars plus whatever shipping cost is a bit steep so thats why sales suffered. He was glad alot of people liked it though :)….. just not the price XD.

                      I’ll let you know when he sets up a twitter, tumblr and maybe a facebook page that will be showing daily updates of his work. He really needs followers.

      Me, I’m just here playing Persona 1 again. This time on PSP.

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        See below: http://gematsu.com/2014/03/open-forum-086#comment-1276045343 =)

        I never played Persona 1. I got P3P queued up on my Vita though that I’d like to get to soon. I’ve played the original Persona 3 on my PS2, but never FES.

        • Pyrofrost

          Damn, sorry to hear about that Sal. I wish you a speedy recovery with that.

          Persona 1 is good, definitely has that older SMT feel to it though. At that point (when it was originally made), it was just a SMT spinoff and not its own series, and they were doing a bit of experimentation.

          FES adds some pretty good story elements, but not the most necessary ones. It basically explains why P3 ends the way it does. If you want me to dig you up the script of The Answer (the addition in FES) to read, I can do that for you. It’s no trouble.

  • Nice Boat

    I watched the anime adaptation of Devil Survivor 2. Sure it wasn’t a good adaptation on its own but I think it stands as a good show on its own. It had some flaws though like Hibiki not decapitating Yamato cos I was getting tired of that asshole but it was fun. I was afraid of comments about how Hibiki was turning into a Shinji Ikari expy but thanks god he remained strong until the end.

    Hey guys, I know this place is mostly about gaming and lots of guys posting anime chicks, ect ect.

    But I was wondering…does anyone else here have lots of image trouble. As in, is there something you’re personally not comfortable with appearance-wise?

    • DichaTesoro

      “appearance-wise” as in self or any image in the forums?

      • Pekola

        Self-Image, mostly. Something physical or personal that bothers you about your…well, person.

        • DichaTesoro

          When I was a kid I got teased lots about my hair—it’s curly and quite wild, and you know, since girls are supposed to be perfect in every way with nice hair, well, I stood out. I thought “f*ck it” in middle school and stopped caring about what people said, and since cut it shorter and well, it looks very cool and unique now. I’ve accepted my appearance as is and have no problems with it.
          What about you?

          • Pekola

            Well, I have lots of insecurities. My hair is usually a mess, which I cut myself because I’m insecure about it (derp).

            And I do go to the gym during the weekdays, but I’m still majorly preoccupied with my figure. So I eat, but feel bad as a result. Lol.

            It’s terrible, I tell ya.

            • DichaTesoro

              Sounds terrible, yeah. Physical appearance is so much now to everyone, it sucks. What does your hair look like though? Just curious.

              My insecurities stem from social things. Just today at work my supervisor had to talk to me about how our managers think I’m disrespectful to them. It sounds as if they’re ready to fire me for just being shy or misunderstood. My supervisor defended me as much as he could which I am thankful for. I’m ready to just quit, but can’t. It’s just very stressful.
              Sorry about this being so long.

    • bloodiOS

      I think I look like an ordinary person, but at the same time, I don’t feel like showing people what I look like in real life. That’s more a privacy things though.

    • new_tradition

      A lot.

      I’m overweight, taller and bigger than most guys including having big hands and feet, don’t like showing my skin off, and my hair is always a mess.

      I’ve experienced guys giving me lesser treatment compared to prettier girls (I don’t blame the girls for being pretty) for most of my life. I’d like to think I’ve matured enough to shrug it off, but I think it has effected me.

      Damn, gotta love internet anonymity, lol xD

    • Arcana Gear

      Yeah, some.
      I reaaaally dislike my face, is very fatty, even though my body is slim, and my nose cause of allergies is always swollen at one side, making it being asymmetrical, and cause of genetic, (both from mother and father) i have a LOT of body hair, when i say a lot is really a lot, most than any person i ever met.

    • KingNigma

      I have a big forehead. Someone pointed it out one day about a year ago and I’ve been self-conscious about ever since. Though not such a problem compared to others. I also need to gain some weight which I can’t seem to do. 135 lbs at 5″9′ doesn’t seem right to me. I’m a toothpick man.

    • Elvick

      My body isn’t tone, so it’s gross to me. :p

      And I hate my smile.

      And I have skin problems. I always forget what it’s called something-dermatitis.

      But generally, I like me.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      The replies prove my point but. I’ll let you in on a secret. Everyone has something they don’t like or even hate about themselves.

      I like to think that life is a constant battle everyday… with yourself. Some days… it’s just tough, it’s easy to let what you don’t like or even hate about yourself get you down.

      I’m saying this from experience. It’s happened to me many times before. We just all have to remember that no one is perfect. We were all created to be imperfect beings.

      It’s very easy to be your own worse enemy. A huge part of life is coming to terms with the things you dislike about yourself, and I’m not just talking about how we look.

      You are not alone in this. You never will be, we all have the same problems. I think we just tend to be afraid to admit them, or show weakness to others, you know?

    • karmacoma

      I didn’t see this before until I saw the “Zero – Open Forum – 5 minutes ago” notice on the side bar.

      But yeah, I’m extremely self-conscious about my appearance. I switch between feeling like I’m fairly attractive to thinking I’m hideous, pretty much instantly. I hate my teeth, I think my nose is too short and kind of plain (I’d prefer a more Mediterranean nose), my cheeks are too puffy, my chin is too large, I have odd proportions.
      But then the next minute I might pass by a reflection and think “hey, I’m kind of hot.”

      It’s weird. So yeah, if you’re feeling self-conscious about your appearance, know that it’s absolutely normal. And also, no matter how you feel about your appearance, everyone is beautiful to someone.

              I don’t think anyone would appreciate being called out on something they can’t control–such as skin color or sexual orientation.

              Specially to discredit their points of view.

                Those poor, poor white men.

                Forgive me for being unable to sympathize while states push legislature trying to legalize discrimination against people like me.

                But you’re right. This shit is turning into Tumblr. Here is an anime gif.

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

                  Oh, right, so because the “poor, poor white men” gets everything he wants, then there shouldn’t be a ‘White History Month’ or something of the sort as well?

                  Look, I can’t control what the state does to you, man. I wish I could, but just because you’re suffering doesn’t give you the right to wish others would suffer too. There are plenty of things in life which aren’t fair and I’m sure you know this more than a lot of people do, but the minute you begin thinking other people don’t deserve something because you don’t have something… That’s the moment you lose a piece of your humanity.

                  Just try to see this from a more civil standpoint rather than a personal one. This isn’t even about you or me, man.

                  • Six

                    I don’t want anyone to suffer. I just don’t like people who try to turn things around and make it about them.

                    You want a heterosexual pride parade? Sure, once homosexual marriage is legal in every state and we have the same rights you do.

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

                      Again, it’s not about me. I’m thinking on a grand scale here. I’d be willing to bet I’m not the only one who would actually appreciate something like this.

                      Just because two people in the room are hungry doesn’t mean you should just automatically feed one of them more food because they claim to be more hungry than the other person. As I said before, if they want to have a parade for homosexuality, awesome, but don’t get upset when there’s a parade for heterosexuality then.

                      You want to throw this in my face? Fine. Now I’ll throw it back in your face and see how you like it. More often than not, people get upset at this and rightfully so.

                      I just don’t see a reason to parade about that sort of thing, much like I don’t see a reason to parade about heterosexuality. It’s more like I feel like the younger brother in a family at times that has to see my older brother get a birthday present, but I don’t get anything. The parent(s) usually gets the younger brother something too, even if it isn’t their birthday, in order to keep the peace.

                  • Budgiecat

                    Itd cause more harm than good. It’s not like these holidays are new or anything. They were designed during a time when racial tension was at a high and there needed to be moments of boosting self esteem for a section of U.S. society as well as empowering them and females who as I said were looked down upon. Historically in the U.S. the white male was not looked down upon seeing as how they were the majority in power.

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

              It’s not even about that, man. People always treat me like I’m the bad guy when I poke fun at finding a flaw in our system. I’d be making the same complaint even if I was a female.

              I just like for things to make sense, ya know? If you’re going to give me International Women’s Day, that’s great. Now give me International Male’s Day.

              EDIT: This is the same reason I get frustrated when homosexuals want to have a parade and such to celebrate homosexuality. That’s all well and good. I don’t have anything against homosexuality itself, just some of the people give it a bad name.

              However, don’t get upset when I hold a parade for heterosexuals. That’s fair game to me.

              • Budgiecat

                    • Budgiecat

                      Yes and they were all males… no such thing as female slaves…

                      Besides we’re talking about American history here I don’t recall White slaves that kinda defeats the purpose. Maybe there were indentured servants but thats not the same thing

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

                      Actually, there were female slaves too. That’s another issue entirely though. I’m just saying, I don’t see the harm in having a White History Month if there’s already a Black History Month.

                      I’m not even entirely sure why people make this seem like such a bad thing anyway, you know… Wanting an International Male’s Day just because an International Women’s Day exists.

                    • Budgiecat

                      “actually there were female slaves too”

                      missed mah sarcasm there….

                      And no White History Month is stupid. Whites in the U.S. weren’t deprived of their rights to the point of being hung by racists and hosed down and treated like animals,and such a thing would just invite all the KKK and NeoNazi idiots we need to keep those fools quiet…

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

                      I’m sorry. I wasn’t aware that history was restricted to a specific race. I suppose only black people had a history worth talking about because it was more unfortunate than the “white man’s” history in the United States.

                      Yep, sure sounds stupid to deprive someone of something because of that.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Okay lets celebrate how the white man nearly caused the genocide of the Native American race; one more thing to be proud of in American history….

                  Actually, that would be a good idea. After all, aunts and uncles can play a big role in someone’s life sometimes. Sure, not all the time, but it’s kind of silly to not honor them too.

                  • Sevyne

                    My Aunt practically raised my youngest brother and when she passed away, my Uncle was like a father to him. He’s grown up into a much better person than myself, so I completely agree. Aunt and Uncles can be just as important in a person’s life as a mother/father.

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

                      My mother died when I was young and my old man was a bit of an asshat when I was growing up, so yeah… My grandparents and my aunts played a more important role in my life, so I certainly wouldn’t mind something like that. Still, I think it’s pretty funny how people are looking at me like I’m crazy because of all this.

                      Then again, I honestly can’t say I’m surprised. It isn’t the first time and it certainly won’t be the last.

                    • Sevyne

                      Yeah, my old man bailed when I was still in diapers. My mother was kind of a mother sometimes and then someone in a midlife crisis the rest of the time. I spent a lot of my youth either roaming out getting in trouble with friends or hanging out with my cousins playing games.

                      By the time my youngest brother was born, my mother was a complete mess, so he never got much love from her. Sounds horrible, but honestly my aunt and uncle made a fine man out of him. He’s successful, nice, generous, etc. I’m really proud of him and can’t even put words into how thankful I am of them to bring him up so well.

                      Meanwhile, I’m the asshole y’all know lol.

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

                      I’m not really sure what happened with my old man. A lot of the family members think he just lost it when my mom died. He remarried twice, but he still just hasn’t been the same since.

                      Granted, now that it has been over 10 years, we get along a little better at this point, but still… I’ll probably always feel closer to my aunt and my grandmother since they took me in when nobody else would.

                A group never oppressed celebrating themselves is the most retarded thing you could do. “WHITE POWER!” Durrr

                And I know the only people that would do such a thing are the ones trying to keep homosexuals from equality. Dat hypocrisy, bitch when you can’t have a parade celebrating your privilege without being called a tool, but then directly oppress others. Way to be bro.

                And straight people go to pride parades too you know.

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

                  Oppression shouldn’t have anything to do with it. Giving people privileges just because they had/have hard times is no different than the supposed inequality I represent for wanting something too. You can’t sit there and say, “We want to be treated different!” while also saying “We want to be treated the same!” It’s one or the other.

                  You want your hypocrisy? There’s your hypocrisy. People demanding to get special treatment under the false pretense of equality.

                  • Elvick

                    It’s not a “privilege”.

                    Go have a stupid white pride parade. Go celebrate your whiteness and the “struggles” you never overcame as white people.

                    People will just think you’re a tool doing so. Because the only people that want to celebrate being a privileged white person are racist assholes who are mad that minorities have overcome SOME of the racism in the world. And they’d rather they be back to being less than everyone else and being property.

                    btw; I’m white as white can be. But I’ve never been “proud” to be white, why? What struggle have I had due to my skin? None. Meanwhile, my fellow humans have struggled due to their skin tone. Which is nonsense. It’s a huge “fuck you” to everyone’s struggle to make light of their struggles. To take the thing they use to celebrate their overcoming (to an extent) of racism/homophobia/opression and use it to celebrate what makes you privileged is just ridiculous.

                    Wanting to celebrate the fact that you’ve lived through adversity is bad how? The counter to that is not privileged people celebrating their privilege.

                    White people do not have access to a history in the US that supports an equal counterpart in a parade. They’ve been through nothing. Unless you count not being allowed to be racist, or own other people as “adversity”.

                    There is no equal parade to be had. Because the message wouldn’t be the same. That’s why anyone that would have one would be seen as a ridiculous asshat.

                      I could have easily said the same to you.

                      But I guess I gave you too much credit.

                      Yes, you should have said the same to me. That was your problem right there, trying to convince me that I was wrong and I you were right when neither of us are either of those. You don’t have a problem with guys going out there having their own parade to basically tell everyone, “LOOK AT ME! I’M A GUY AND I LOVE SCREWING OTHER GUYS IN THE ASS AND SUCKING DICK! WOOHOO!!”, whereas I don’t feel that’s something that should be celebrated.

                      You want to have a holiday/parade/month for someone who fought for your country? That’s all well and good. I just don’t agree with these festivities if it involves simply celebrating for your sexual orientation, gender, or race. Again, opinions.

      • Gustavo Rosario

        Every month is white history month when you live in a white patriarchal society, man! Even Black History Month is just another symbol of the Man’s power of us or something along those lines.

          Yeah. I’m glad you find it to be so hilarious that I’m wanting things to be fair all around the board here. Tell ya what.

          When there’s a day, parade, month, whatever that you don’t agree with and you wish they celebrated for you instead, you just sit there and laugh, and laugh some more. I don’t want to hear a single complaint out of you.

          • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

            I’m laughing because of your idea of “equality”. That’s all.

          • $18114340

            Who’s complaining?

      • KingNigma

        I’m all for equality but White History Month….really?

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

          Oh, wait. Let me guess. You think this is a race thing simply because I was one of the people that actually spoke out and suggested White History Month, right?

          Yeah, that’s right. It’s all well and good if a black man stands up and demands for a Black History Month or a woman stands up and demands for International Women’s Day, but the moment a white man stands up and says something… Suddenly that becomes racist or sexist. I see how it is.

          I always find it to be amusing when most of the people demanding equality simply twist the definition and put themselves on top so they have something the other person doesn’t have, rather than having and/or sharing something with the other person. I’d be willing to bet you if I was a woman or black person complaining about something, you probably wouldn’t think twice about questioning me, would you?

          That kind of mentality is poisoning, really, and it’s the sole reason I just disputed this topic with so many people here because they are quickly making me out to be the bad guy just because I’m white (and a male). If you want to pick a side of the fence to stand on, that’s all well and good… You should have passion in what you believe in. Just don’t be one of those people that sits on one side of the fence and believe what goes on the opposite side just because someone tells you what they think is the reality of the situation.

          Climb that fence and see for yourself, then make an objective opinion based on what you know, not what someone has told you or conforming to an idea based on its popularity.

          • KingNigma

            Demanding a month dedicated to the history of the privilaged and non-opressed because there is one for the non-privilaged and opressed doesn’t sound like equality to me. Tell me why is it that Irish, Italian, Jewish history – all white – can be celebrated but when it comes to black history there’s a problem and claims of inequality start shooting out? BHM alone doesn’t even come close to bringing Blacks to being as equal as Whites but all of a sudden having it puts them over them to the point where having WHM is necessary to be equal?

            “Celebrating a day, month, whatever just because you’re white, black, gay, straight, whatever… That just seems a little ridiculous” – We don’t celebrate BHM for being black, it’s celebrating the important people and events in Black culture but unfortunately isn’t viewed as such. When you think of Black History no doubt slavery is going to be one of the first things that come to mind, and even that has a big White focus as they still had a big involvement in salvery whether it be good or bad.

            “All these “unfortunate souls” that people want to talk about sure as hell don’t sound unfortunate when they have an entire month dedicated to them because of their race or whatever” – Yikes. You really believe that because we have our month now that nullifies all the years of slavery, opression and discrimination? I’d be lying if I said racism against blacks to this day is dead.

            “I’d be willing to bet you if I was a woman or black person complaining about something, you probably wouldn’t think twice about questioning me, would you?” I didn’t know blindness is limited to a specific gender or skin colour.

            No matter how you look at it it’s a white man’s world and it doesn’t take a History Uni Prof to know that. I’m capable of seeing that with my own eyes and had experiences as a black person myself. White people have everything and when minorties claim something it should be white’s privilige to have it too. The fact that you specifically wanted a White History Month instead of a focus on other minority (Oriental, South Asian, Latino) really shows me how equal you want things to be.

            That being said, Where’s my International I Don’t Do Da Ganja Day? I’d like to celebrate the years I’ve kicked peer pressure ass :P

              • KingNigma

                It’s a shame to see that you think such an issue all bottles down to a matter of opinion. As if it was merely someones opinion to create something like a BHM and nothing more. To have a differing opinion is one thing but to have such an ill informed view on things even when the history is there is something else and to see that you simply refuse to acknowledge such circumstances or even anything I said for that matter and instead reply with tasteless snark is really disappointing to see…. and I’m really sorry you feel that way.

                  You know what’s even more of a shame? To sit here and spout this nonsense about someone else having such an ill informed opinion when you’re sitting there doing the very same exact thing.

                  As I already said before (plenty of times, mind you), either give the same to everyone or do away with all of it. Simple as that. I’m sorry if you can’t understand that way of thinking, but don’t sit there and pull the “woe me” card as if your life has been oh so terrible and a white man such as myself couldn’t possibly understand the pain and anguish you’ve had to endure.

                  Give me a break. The race and sexist card have been played to death, man. Give it a rest.

                  If that’s the only thing you have as a defense, then I think we’re done here.

                  • KingNigma

                    We’d eventually be going in circles with this so this will be my last say on this.

                    Until white people are in a position where they’ve been enslaved, oppressed, prejudiced, discriminated against, and continue to receive unjust sentences and trails, – whatever – to the point where they’ve been set back generations and to this very day still get the short end of the stick in favour of whatever race dominates like Whites do today do not tell me to stop playing the race card, do not tell me White people aren’t privileged by default and please do not tell me as a White person you know best what’s racism and what isn’t. You cannot tell me otherwise. You are a white person living in White America where you have always been put on a pedestal because you are white. I’m not holding this against you as a human being but this is something white people constantly fail to understand. There are things that are culturally off limits to them.

                    As I’ve mentioned before the fair thing to do is to have the same appreciation for other minorities as well, instead of taking the focus from them and instead putting it on those who have always had the special treatment. Don’t you think we would surely see eye to eye on something like this?

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

                      Just the fact that you think I only want this for white people shows how little you’ve actually paid attention to my posts. Of course giving it to minorities as well would be appropriate. You don’t honestly think I’d sit here and go, “Durr hurr. Yeah! Just give it to white people! Screw the others!”, do you?

                      I’ve already said it countless times now… Either give it to everybody or don’t give it to anybody at all, so nobody feels left out. Anyway, I’ve reiterated my points until I’ve become blue in the face at this point, so I’ll just leave the matter at that.

      • Pyrofrost

        We don’t need a White History Month or a Men’s day.

        We need to drop Black History Month and Women’s day.

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

          That would be an acceptable alternative too.

          • Pyrofrost

            To be honest, I don’t believe anyone or any social group deserves recognition or special treatment.

            If we are going to give anyone special recognition, it should be reserved only for specific individuals who have actually done something beneficial for furthering the existence of the human species as a whole. That is it.

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

              I can understand that. If someone finally creates a cure for a cancer, give them a fucking holiday. Celebrating a day, month, whatever just because you’re white, black, gay, straight, whatever… That just seems a little ridiculous. I know that sounds like it contradicts what I’ve been saying about wanting something like that too, but as I also said before… I’m basically only wanting it because I don’t have it.

              It really gets annoying when people just shove that shit down your throat and this is why I have come to loathe stuff like this. All these “unfortunate souls” that people want to talk about sure as hell don’t sound unfortunate when they have an entire month dedicated to them because of their race or whatever. Then they act all superior to you and tell you how much they deserve it, remind you how pathetic you are for something your ancestors did, etc.

              It just kind of rubs me the wrong way, that’s all. It would be like if Dairy Queen had a “ladies day 50% off” or something. I would probably ask them, “Okay, so when is men’s day so I can get a discount too?” since it seems unfair for them to get a discount, but here I am continuing to pay full price all the time. So, either do away with the discounts or give them to both of us.

              Simple solution.

              • Pyrofrost

                Yeah, that’s pretty much how I feel about that, because it simply creates another manner of inequality. Take it all away, because no one deserves any special treatment, not Blacks, Whites, Men, Women, LGBTs, Heteros, and etc; or whatever member of the social construct a person may be.

                People especially don’t deserve special for a genetic predisposition.

                ***What, you’re a Black, Female, Homosexual…..congratu-fucking-lations….you get to pay taxes, eat shit, and die; just like everyone else. No special treatment.

                To idealistic, yeah sure; but that’s what I would like to see.

    Hey guys, just wanted to get your opinions on MGS Ground Zeroes. Anyone planning to buy it?

    For myself, I’d rather just wait for tpp since its like, 200x bigger lol. Plus, I’m a big newb to the whole metal gear thing and I think I’m gonna get lost real quick. I only ever played mg rising. Does that count? =P

    Anyway, I hope y’all have a great weekend!

    ps: I need ideas for a new username. Funniest suggestion gets a free internet hug :3

    • bloodiOS

      Just wait. It’s the reasonable thing to do.

    • Sevyne

      I’m gonna wait it out. No rush for me. Plenty of games stacking up in my backlog anyway.

      New username suggestion: ParappaFrankZappa

      • kefert

        I never got the concept of having a backlog. (Except for Steam users, which apparently is common to have huge backlogs).. if I buy a game, I’ll play it asap.

        Thanks for the suggestion! Kinda funky username.

        • Sevyne

          Well, it usually happens to me for a few reasons. Niche titles usually aren’t in heavy stock, so the only way you’re guaranteed the game without paying ridiculous prices later (due to low supply) is pre-ordering. Also, when games I’m interested in get heavily discounted I jump on it while it’s cheap. Then there’s the fact that I am subbed to PS+ and own a PS3/PS4/Vita. Just PS+ alone kills ya with a massive backlog. Also (like you said) Steam sales.

          That said, the games I’m super excited for usually get played right away. The rest I kind of chip away at a little at a time.

          • kefert

            I know what you’re talking about there.. everytime I log in the ps store I see so many good discounts for ps+ it would be hard not to stack them up.

    • MrFinalgamer

      story wise, only playing Rising gives you as much knowledge of the plot of the series, as Re:Coded for the KH series (barely anything).
      personally, i’ll wait until TPP gets closer to release since by then it’ll probably be cheaper

    • PrinceHeir

      I probably wait as well though.

      Despite being a massive fan of the series, i had some downsides over the last few years(Peace Walker was meh)

      Rising brought me the hype for the franchise once more, which is funny considering a spin off managed to do something better than one of the mainline series. that and i’m also a huge fan of the hack and slash genre.

      As for Ground Zeroes, i’ll wait on Summer to buy it along with the JPN Rising LE SE(ALL DLC’s included including Solid Snake Sword)

      I’m in no rush to buy the game at all. Phantom Pain will probably include both on PS4.

      • kefert

        Yeah, no rush here either. It would be amazing if the ps4 version of tpp did include both games.. two birds, one stone! I would have yet another reason to buy a ps4 too =D

        It’s actually more like TERA in that it has action combat rather than usual hotkeys and cooldowns. But I agree that the art design is pretty reminiscent of Final Fantasy XIV.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      The main reason I always suggest that one is because the most revelation is supplied through that route, and the end is superior. Not to mention it sends you through all of the games playable content. So bear that in mind.

                      While the game can be a challenge, I assure you, its not impossible. :p

                      Besides, you do want to know their secrets, right ;)

                    • kirby755

                      Hmm… Secrets you say…. I’m interested XD!!!!

                    • Pyrofrost

                      Yep, that route is the key to finding who they are and what their goals are; as well as learning about the world and why your world is in the state it’s in.

                    • kirby755

                      I will continue that great story in the morning and find out the truth…. now I’m I feel like a member of the Investigation Team.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      Go get ’em!
                      It is one hell of a journey, that’s for sure. I can say without a doubt that Nocturne and Xenoblade, at this point of my life, are tied at the #1 spot for my favorite video games of all time.

      It kicked my ass and I haven’t felt worthy to get back to it yet D:

  • Rikimaru

    5$ says this Arkham Knight is Jason Todd.

    How are all y’all doin?

    • jujubee88

      I’m fine. You?

      • Rikimaru

        Im content with life as it is, I got my first job so

        • jujubee88

          Congrats! As long as your doing what you love that’s all that matters.

          • Rikimaru

            Im in highschool.

      I’m sick and mucousy.

      I saw a performance of Noises Off earlier and it was pretty funny.
      Now listening to music and eating Honey Nut Cheerios.

      • jujubee88

        “I’m sick and mucousy.”

        Get well soon. Have a lozenge, if need be.

        • karmacoma

          Thanks. On the bright side, I don’t have anything planned for the rest of the weekend so I can just spend it reading comics or playing video games. :D

          • jujubee88

            You’re welcome!

    • Gigus

      I gotta agree with you there. I’m just confused to why they’ve turned an existing character and combine it with another DC character and try say its completely original. They should have just put Jason Todd in his Red Hood attire instead if Jason is the arkham knight.

  • jujubee88

    This a bit off but do you all like some indie/lesser known type of music bands? Rock or hip-hop or whatever, so long as it’s kinda underground (compared to the mainstream).

    Here’s my fav rock-ish group at the moment in that category, Company of Thieves:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5jK9jlsvuE

    Great singer and band overall. Woof!

    • Sevyne

      She’s got a great voice.

      • jujubee88

        Yeah, the quality of her singing voice is so fun and exciting. ^_^

    • karmacoma

      I don’t really focus on whether an artist is famous or not, so for all I know the folks I mention might have a large following. Either way, here a few artists I’d like to see more people talking about:

      Iza Lach:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_d3tcOzywo

      Jhené Aiko

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEm3lY3trRU

      Cibelle

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tt6o4lmHxfk

      • jujubee88

        Well, we know when a musician or band has a giant following just by looking at smash hits that play a lot on the radio and get billions of views on YT and larger than life personalities that always come up.

        It’s the more personal, less collective conscious music and artists you like that I’m talking about. You shared some, I like the first, now onto the next youtube vids you’re sharing here. :P

        Edit: I like it! They are chill tracks (which makes sense since you are sick right now). I love discovering new songs, bands, sounds, etc. The last one got me; I love the somber bossa grooves to that one.

        • karmacoma

          Glad you enjoyed them. :)
          The song in your original post was great, too. I’ll need to check them out sometime.

          • jujubee88

            Ditto! The original had a few songs and (I think a cover). Company of Thieves seem like a hot ticket, I’d love to see them some time live. :)

  • Wolf Star

    How does everyone like the new PS3 box art colors?? I love it!! :D

    • karmacoma

      I like it, but I like colors, consistent branding, and most importantly, BLUE.

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

      it’s weird seeing the boxes blue now. i’ve always associated black with PS =P

      • shogunknight

        Thats what eight years of seeing the same thing does

      • Wolf Star

        since I got Ps vita and Ps4, I got used to blue covers now. lol I don’t mind ps3 cover being blue as well. I’ll miss black cover but hey we all are going to enjoy the same game :)

    • shogunknight

      Its not a suprise that even the cases changed since Sony have been on a serious restructuring spree. They are basically turning themselves into a playstation 1st priority, which is good. I like the color and font so i love it :)

    • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

      I don’t like it but I don’t really mind it either, I guess they really wanted to associate PlayStation brand with blue since Vita came out. Give me black, transparent or white over other colors any day.

      • Wolf Star

        I got used to Vita colors and PS4 has them too.. I guess PS3 can join then also :/ I’ll still miss the back color ps3 covers. Still I like the blue.

        • karmacoma

          I always wondered why they didn’t make the original PS3 cases blue like blu-ray cases. Sony was trying really hard to push blu-ray back in 2006 and it’d have made sense to give them the same cases to show that synergy between the two products they were debuting. Also, it’d have been cheaper since they wouldn’t have to make two different colored cases.

          • Wolf Star

            I’m not sure why?? but I guess it’s time for something fresh and new. plus heck it’s blue ray lol. It’s way better than dark green Xbox one cover. (I like the light green like on Xbox 360 cover)

          • Elvick

            I never understood that either. And they’re thicker for PS3 too.

    • bloodiOS

      • jujubee88

        What’s the original?

        • bloodiOS

          The black lining was better. I don’t like that blue.

          • MrFinalgamer

            i guess you don’t like P3’s color scheme and the MCs haird then…

            • bloodiOS

              It made me want to vomit.

              • MrFinalgamer

                you know he doesn’t take comments like that lightly! look what you made the poor bastard do!
                http://i.minus.com/igwzn5N3fNrg.gif

                • bloodiOS

                  I was just playing along with you by being hyperbolic about it. I used to have a P3’s MC avatar, you know. Honestly, I just specifically don’t like the blue on the box. It irks me…

                  • MrFinalgamer

                    well..yeah it does look weird TBH. at least not all titles will receive the blue treatment…for now

          • jujubee88

            Agree to disagree.

        • shogunknight

          This one

          • jujubee88

            Looks all the same to me. The new one seems less obtrusive on Deception actually since it looks like it blends right in to the blue cover art.

            • bloodiOS

              Looks so out of place here:
              The black one copes better with many kind of cover arts. The blue one, not so much.

    • DarkLegacy

      I love blue

    • Elvick

      I hate it, because now my PS3 library will look even stupider. It’s bad enough that they changed it once. Now they’re changing the color. D:<

      • Arcana Gear

        my library have almost every color ><
        i try to have all black label, but presents, sites that have wrong image, and sales… XD

  • shogunknight

    Reading this article on IGN about Sony Santa Monica rebooting their studios and projects gave me a serious question that buzzes me: God of War ended in 3, if there was a reboot or sequel or another God of War franchise, how would you have wanted it? Use a different mythology? A different Timeframe? Or use kratos again? Would it feel awkward if another myth is used but they retain the same God of War title? I dont know if i would be happy or not if they were to use any of those scenarios

    • karmacoma

      There was a rumor awhile ago that they were going to make a title based on Nordic mythology. While I would’ve liked that, after Ascension I think I’m pretty burnt out on that gameplay, so I’d rather see a Norse mythology action or role playing game by a new developer. I kind of want to see one of the many Swedish developers tackle it.

      • shogunknight

        Yeah i agree, i think they should go for a different playstyle. Norse mythology, thats the Vikings. Nice choice if considered, im just not sure if i want to see another demigod on rampage, depends actually. Vikings, one of their god is Odin right? Thats also the myth where Valkyries are found, nice. Now i really hope you are right

        • karmacoma

          Correct. :)

    • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

      It ended? I always thought the ending was a cliffhanger and lot of possibility for sequel. But yeah I’d like the series to reboot and I don’t want to play as Kratos again, never liked him but I don’t hate him either.

      I think they should work with Compile Heart and make this, lol.

      http://i1.minus.com/jbgxLnbpN9b4uo.jpg

      • shogunknight

        Hahaha Compile Heart? It seems like you want some fans to angrily retaliate and raid SSM. I sincerely do not know how a God of War X Compile heart collaboration will look like

        • Pekola

          Extra points for the Halo font. Lol.

    • Elvick

      I’d want new mythology and preferably a new character. Kratos isn’t interesting to me.

      • shogunknight

        If they use norse mythology, i hope they use a valkyrie as main. Gonna pray so much for this

        • Arcana Gear

          You made me remember valkyrie profile!!!!!!
          But sadly, the investors think that females dont sell as good as super muscular “cool” male characters like kratos in the west…. and the worse it true ><

          • shogunknight

            If a god of war game uses the norse mythology and introduces a valkyrie as main, that would be really awesome. i will buy all sequels and dlcs then buy the collection years later, its all lenneths and odin spheres gwyndolins fault. Since those two, i had this high respected love for valkyries

    • karmacoma

      You have to admit that the blue label matches the box art this time. :p

      • bloodiOS

        I do. But I still abhor it -__-
        I think the black one matches it more though.

    • shogunknight

      You see, even the blue version says mature XD

      weird, the Tecmo logo in the EU box is slightly upwards in comparison to the NA box…

    Since beating Ys Celceta I’ve been clearing my Ys backlog now. So far only Ys Origin and Ark of Napishtim left. Of all Ys I’ve beaten Ys Seven has the best story, it almost made me cry. I hope we’ll get new info soon about that NotYs PS4 game Falcom teased :D

      WTF PLASTIC FORK?

  • Reda1234

    Hi gematsu. I’m planning on buying Bravely default and I wanna know whether the story is good or not. A bad story is a deal breaker for me sometimes.

    • Pyrofrost

      If you like JRPGs with a story telling style and character archetypes from the SNES era, go for it.
      If you’re expecting something revolutionary and mindblowing; with an intellectually written script that makes you ponder life, death, the way the world works, morality, the state of humanity as a species, your purpose in life, etc, etc, etc; then don’t bother.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Honestly it’s… not great.

  • Rikimaru

    FINAL FANTASY XV

    • KingNigma

      What!?! Where?

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Hm? Yes? It is a game…?

  • shogunknight

    Have you guys filled out the Kingdom Hearts Survey?

    https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=BLUpD2PjR303yTy7M1rIug%3d%3d

    (Spoiler Alert: No Vita in console of choices) :(

    • Pyrofrost

      I guess time will tell if that’s a sign of some kind. Concerning KH, I wasn’t expecting 2.5 or 3 to appear on Vita (though I would have rather had 1.5 and 2.5 on Vita).

      • shogunknight

        Maybe they didnt bother since ps4 has remote play >.>

        • Pyrofrost

          Yeah, but that’s not exactly the same. Remote play only works if you are able to connect via ad-hoc to your console, or if you are at a location receiving a wifi internet connection.

          If you’re at a spot with no wifi, then remote play is a no-go.

          I can’t say how remote play acts if you have the 3G subscription. I can’t imagine it being any good though, but someone who knows is free to correct me.

          • shogunknight

            True, so we are just left with the blunt truth that they have no intentions of releasing a kingdom hearts title on the vita. That question that about favorite disney world was tricky for me, my best 2 are little mermaid and aladdin. I picked ariel, i prefer her to jasmine

            • Pyrofrost

              Yeah, on worlds, I was more undecided between Aladdin’s and Nightmare Before Christmas. The latter because I love the This is Halloween song.
              I don’t mind Little Mermaid, but I didn’t like the Under the Sea mini game xD

            • Elvick

              Nightmare Before Christmas >>>>>

              Agrabah is the worst. Bleh.

        • Elvick

          PS3 ain’t got no remote play. At least not for either of those games.

    • Elvick

      Yes.

      And my entire last box of ‘final thoughts’ or w/e it’s called was filled with PS Vita.

      It’s my second favorite platform I have. It’s my most used system. Has been for most of the time it’s been out.

      And I asked about TWEWY and Theatrhythm ports since they’re both on mobile. And Type-0 localization.

      • shogunknight

        Nice, I just wished them good luck and that they shouldnt forget the console gamers and the west. I dont want square enix rpgs to be limited to only final fantasy, KH and bravely default

        • Elvick

          Shame DQ doesn’t do better here.

          • Budgiecat

            DQ IX sold over a million in the U.S. but S-E would like you to think somehow that ‘sucks’

            • shogunknight

              1 million probably was not their expected sales estimate. Remember tomb raider

              • Budgiecat

                Tomb Raider also cost 100 million to develop, so when you do the math, you can easily see where they needed to be sales wise to be in the profit zone. DQ IX no where near that amount.
                Let’s not forget a lot of these DQ games are not localized and S-E still considers them profitable with just the Japan sales alone. Look at the last two DQM games; both around 500k and thats considered a success for them there.

            • Elvick

              Hmm, I guess SE NA/EU just hates it then.

              Dicks.

      • Sevyne

        I did pretty much the same thing. The fact that the Vita wasn’t even listed as an option for anything (even though EVERYTHING else was) was pretty disgusting to me.

        Fight the good fight!

        Also had to give this site some love and put it in the “Other” box because it’s not listed in the gaming sites.

        • Elvick

          Probably won’t do anything. ):

          I also mentioned this site. :P It is my most visited site, and where I get most of my info so. :3

    • karmacoma

      I also chose Halloween Town and mentioned Gematsu.
      I mentioned that I want to play a Disney RPG with the occasional Final Fantasy cameo and not a G-rated Final Fantasy with the occasional Disney cameo, which is how the more recent titles have felt.
      Also, I mentioned Adam Jensen eating cereal, even though I know no Eidos characters will make any cameos. ;p

      • Wolf Star

        Oh man, I forgot to put make KH3 more darker like KH2 was. :/ that’s what I liked about KH2. They picked amazing Disney worlds and made the story darker then it was in KH1.
        Birth by sleep is tied with KH2 for me because it’s close to each other by story. After I played dream drop distance, I felt in a mix, I liked it but I wanted something more. I guess it is on a Nintnedo console.

        • DarkLegacy

          Hopefully they will pick some awesome Disney worlds for KH3

          • Wolf Star

            Agreed

    • Budgiecat

      The first thing that come to mind for KH III is I feel you should have the ability to switch characters in battle like Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll, Tales and Dragon Age.

      I also think they shoulda done this with Drakengard 3

    • Wolf Star

      Yes I did. I told them to bring back the triangle reaction commands from KH2 and make a KH3 collectors edition plus I kind of ranted about FFXV and KH3 being delayed and gave an example. Also I told them to put Noctics from FFXV in KH3. :D

      • Budgiecat
        • Wolf Star

          People still go to her concerts after being that slutty?? what world has come to “facepalm” nope everyone knows Miley is a slut xD

          • Budgiecat

            she also hates porn…

            • Wolf Star

              http://alfa.gifs-planet.com/anim/254.gif
              Well she won’t have cake then :3

              • Budgiecat

                for her, her rant is more like ‘why are you looking at porn you should be looking a me’…

                • Wolf Star

                  Hahaha xD well she wanted to be a slut. Soo she wants everyone to pay attention to her instead of watching porn.

                  • Budgiecat

                    I just want her to relax and settle down and marry Tetsuya so they can have a nice quiet family life and be happy…

                    • Wolf Star

                      lool xD

    • Six

      I told them I want the KH HD collections available on either the 360 or Xbone.

      • shogunknight

        They should release it on X1 maybe, since KH3 is multiplatform it would make better sense to release the collection so as to give some orientation to the franchise

    • KingNigma

      I’m curious to know what people found the most challenging and frustrating. I said Sephiroth and Ice Titan battles for challenging. For frustrating I would’ve liked to put how the main titles are spread across different platforms or how big the wait is in between KH2 and 3 both those are just minor gripes so I just said the platforming.

      • shogunknight

        Some disney world events were quite a hassle, what i loved most was the combat. Especially that of KH2, the forms Sora had were good. Birth by Sleep on PSP was also a great KH title

        • Budgiecat

          I would also like the worlds to be more…..worldly? Instead of ghost towns and what not….even Disney Kinect was more lively…

          • karmacoma

            That was a huge problem for me with KH3D. The worlds felt so dead.

        • KingNigma

          KH2’s combat was really fun though I kinda feel it was too easy in a way especially how Sora’s fighting style shifted from the first game. BBS probably had the best story IMO.

      • new_tradition

        I just said boss fights in general, since that’s often the case for me. I can cruise along with regular enemies no problem, but then a boss beats me a bunch of times before I figure out how to go at them (or grind a lil’ more, lol)

        I also mentioned the story can be a little frustrating, but I didn’t really stress on how the series is spread on so many platforms >.<

        • KingNigma

          Yeah some boss fights can be annoying especially in Re:CoM. I just faced Jafar and that’s probably the most I’ve been annoyed at that game. Stupid bird man.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Hardest= xaldin in KH2, Riku 3 & Larxene 2 in CoM, and xehanort in terra’s story in BBS

        • KingNigma

          I forgot about that Xehanort fight. I raged especially at the one in Aqua’s story.

          • MrFinalgamer

            BBS has to be the second, if not, the hardest game in the series

    • new_tradition

      I did it last night. I tried to stress how shitty their online store was as often as possible, but I dunno what to expect…

      • shogunknight

        We just have to hope that they actually read the surveys, they are going to see a LOT of opinions but im pretty sure once they filter them out, they will have a pretty good picture of what to do

              Oh god no, you don’t want that! Know how debates can get a little heated at times? I’d probably get myself banned in a mood like that lol. i like it here too much for that to happen!

    • shogunknight

      Dont be suprised if gematsu grows as big as destructoid or giantbomb

      • Gigus

        I wouldn’t but if it doesn’t happen, I’d rather stick with the awesome community we’ve always had :D

        • shogunknight

          Yep, i fully agree with you

      • Pyrofrost

        Hehe, I wouldn’t be expecting all that. All those larger sites have a team of journalists and writers. Gematsu is pretty much 100% worked by Sal.
        There is also a young lady named Olivia who works as a translator; and she also posts an article from time to time.

        I’ve also seen a couple of other people do an article or two here before; but yeah, this place is pretty much 100% Salmatsu. So I wouldn’t expect this site to blow up like that.

        I give him props though, imo he does better than the bigger sites anyway. He provides relevant gaming news; and he doesn’t plaster the place with a bunch of freaking sensationalist garbage and click bait. He’s a cool guy, communicates with his readers, and he’s not a douchebag.

        That’s why Gematsu is my #1 gaming news site!

    • z_merquise

      Any reason why “that senator” is there?

      Lot’s of you guys seem to be enjoying it so I might finally check this out.

      Just a question, is this kind of like “so bad it’s good” kind of show. Like maybe Valvrave (that show doesn’t interest me but many talk about it no matter how terrible some people say it is).

      • Nice Boat

        No, the series is fun and the cast is likeable. It’s just it has a lot of intentional random elements that confused a lot of people.The Senator part is due to the fact an episode is basically the final boss fight from Revengeance.

        • z_merquise

          The final boss fight in Metal Gear Rising is one of my most memorable boss fights because of how ridiculous and badass it is at the same time. So if there’s an episode that give that kind of feel, then I’m so going to check this one now.

          Thanks so much.

          • Nice Boat

            No prob. The show starts kind of calm ala Kickass.

            However, that boss fight happens around episode 17. Then there is a short Wonderful 101 boss fight.

  • z_merquise

    Wolfenstein: The New Order looked so awesome

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

    I’m not yet ready to move to PS4 so I’ll get this for PS3 first. I hope it would still look good. But what made me so excited is it had these ridiculous pulp-comic-style feel, the faster-paced shooting like the old FPS games and the fact that it’s Wolfenstein.

    The very first game, Wolfenstein 3D was my childhood favorite and I so love Return to Castle Wolfenstein when I was in high school. Now the latest game looked so promising.

    • Six

      Easily one of my most anticipated games of the year. I really hope this is successful enough that MachineGames gets the chance to work on some of id’s other properties.

      A Rage 2 would be fantastic.

      • z_merquise

        I’m not familiar of the developers’ previous works but I read that they made that Chronicles of Riddick game which many said was very good.

        If this turn to be really good (trailers and the gameplay vids are already impressive to me), it would be cool to have them work on a new Quake game.

        • Six

          Quake would be interesting, because it kind of demands multiplayer more than Wolfenstein or even Doom, and that isn’t MachineGame’s specialty.

          Personally, I’d be cool with a single-player only Quake, but I dunno how many other people would.

          • z_merquise

            Quake 1 and 2 had single-player focused campaign other than it having multiplayer.

            It was Quake 3 that became more on deathmatch-type, multiplayer-focused game (which I still fund fun). Haven’t played Quake 4.

      • Budgiecat

        Nah. a Killer7 sequel, D2 sequel, and Maken X sequel would be better…

      • karmacoma

        I’d like to see Heretic/Hexen come back, but I’m not sure if the property is owned by id, Raven Software or both.

        • Six

          Poor Raven. It kills me that they are stuck doing bitch work on Call of Duty.

          • Budgiecat

            Call of dooty haha thats when your stomach tells you that you need to go poop!

          • karmacoma

            I really want them to make a new X-Men game. :o

            Yeah, I forgot they were bought by Activision. I guess that makes a new Heretic impossible since id and Raven are owned by competing publishers.

            • Six

              ZeniMax has some studios that would be more than capable of making a new Heretic, if the IP was in fact owned by id Software.

              I wish ZeniMax had got a hold of Raven first. They make great single-player FPS titles, and ZeniMax seems to be one of the only AAA publishers who can still utter the words “single player only” and “shooter” in the same sentence.

              Or hell, “single player only” at all.

              • karmacoma

                Agreed. Any publisher that gives Shinji Mikami a home is a-okay by me.

                • Six

                  August 26th, man. I’d say I hope it’s successful, but since Bethesda doesn’t attend the Capcom and Square Enix school of “Six million or bomba”, I’m sure it’ll do just fine.

                  Hopefully Tango does more than survival horror in the future. I need not just Resident Evil Mikami, but that God Hand, Vanquish and PN03 Mikami too.

                  • karmacoma

                    Yeah, I’ve got to say, Vanquish is my favorite game of his (and from Platinum) by far. I would love to see how he’d make a PN03 these days. I loved the concept but the controls kind of bothered me. But I Vanquish controls better than any shooter I’ve ever played, and I think a PN03 with that experience could be incredible.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Vanquish is dope. I would like Platinum to make a Casshern, Karas, Gatchaman and Ghost in the Shell game…

                    • Six

                      Those are all better ideas than the Nintendo fans who constantly want Kamiya to make a Star Fox game.

                    • Budgiecat

                      ugh Star fox lol

                    • karmacoma

                      Yeah, I think I asked them to make a Ghost in the Shell if they ever decide to get into licensed gaming. A Deus Ex-like cyberpunk game with Platinum’s phenomenal combat mechanics would be amazing.

                    • Six

                      Platinum needs to team up with Rockstar or Bungie or whoever owns the IP rights and make Oni 2.

                    • z_merquise

                      Karas by Platinum Games.

                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5V2qwYOiNo

                      But well, there’s already Metal Gear Rising so I’m already happy with that.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Yeah but Raiden can’t transform into a Batmobile and a Batjet…

                    • z_merquise

                      In terms of the action, it would be the closest thing but yeah, you’re right.

                      If only Raiden can do a henshin-sequence. I guess that would be too much and Konami might not accept that, as cool as it sounds (for me).

                    • Budgiecat

                      On a side note, I really hate Konami tho…

                    • karmacoma

                      As a developer, or because they’re basically Metal Gear Studios these days?

                    • Budgiecat

                      As a publisher.

                      Konami is hardly a developer. They don’t develop. They demolish….

                    • karmacoma

                      I remember when they used to be Capcom’s equal. :o

                    • Budgiecat

                      I remember back in 97′ when they came out with a 3D arcade fighter that rivaled Virtua Fighter 3! Then they destroyed it before it even became a reality….

                    • karmacoma

                      Oh man, I remember that.
                      Virtua Fighter 3. That was the first time a game’s graphics just amazed me. There had been games with pretty graphics before. Pretty much all of AM2’s arcade games looked great, as did the Namco stuff, Panzer Dragoon Zwei.. then fuckin’ Virtua Fighter 3 comes out and demolishes everything. Namco releases Tekken 3 a year or two later and it’s just catching up to Virtua Fighter 2.

                    • Budgiecat

                      man I thought I was the only one that remembered that…..for a while I thought it was a dream lol

                      There was also an arcade racer that got canceled that looked amazing for its time around then too. I dont remember the name of it or who was making it as it was in an old Gamefan magazine or something. I just remember seeing a European type setting and car….seemed photo realistic

                    • karmacoma

                      Mm, I’m having trouble coming up with the racer you’re talking about. I remember a few years later, Sega released Sega Super GT, which was like Daytona without the Nascar license. Then they released Daytona 2 and a Nascar arcade game, seperately.

                      I used to read the hell out of GameFan. I blame them for my supernerdness. NickRox and Takuhi, especially. They used to fanboy over everything and make me excited for Japanese games I couldn’t play. Then when they were doing Play, I realized they just hype EVERYTHING up when it releases, then later act like they thought it was garbage all along.

                      Examples: Dynasty Warriors Gundam, FFXIII.

                    • Budgiecat

                      I dont blame you for not figuring it out. It was such a small article at the time too…

                    • z_merquise

                      For cancelling Zone of the Enders 3. And putting too much spotlight for Metal Gear and not giving their other IPs a chance.

                      Don’t get me wrong, I love Metal Gear series but they already done too much for the series. Why can’t they just give the other fans of their other IPs a good treatment as well. And no, turning them to a fucking pachinko game doesn’t fucking count!

                      Metal Gear Rising, on the other hand, is the best idea ever! As long as it’s made by Platinum Games, of course.

                    • karmacoma

                      I agree. I love Metal Gear, but enough already. It kind of hurts me to say that because there was a time when I thought it was the best series in video games. I agree that Rising is their best idea in forever. I’m also kind of glad Atsushi Inaba didn’t let Hideki Kamiya make it since it’d probably still be in development if he was in charge.

                    • z_merquise

                      I remember reading that in an interview when MG Rising was still in development under Platinum. I think it was Kojima who personally requested for it.

                    • karmacoma

                      Yeah, Kojima wanted Kamiya and Inaba was like “hell no!” hahaha
                      Then he’d go on in other interviews and talk about how Kamiya can never finish a game, which is totally believable when you see how much he trolls people on twitter.

                    • Budgiecat

                      It also doesn’t help when Kojima would come out every now and then and state ‘this is my last MGS game I’m making’….

                    • z_merquise

                      Hell yeah! Vanquish is one of my favorite game in this gen. It’s just too bad Vanquish is owned by Sega. I so wanted to see a sequel with more improvements and more boss fights and all.

                      My only hope now is at least a spiritual sequel for the game.

                    • Six

                      Well, since Nintendo picked up Bayonetta 2, maybe PG’s exclusive game with Microsoft is Vanquish 2? :P

                    • karmacoma

                      That’d be cool.
                      Now here’s a “no way in hell situation,” Sony’s exclusive is a Polyphony X Platinum collaborative reboot of Omega Boost.

                    • Six

                      I was going to say Anarchy Reigns 2, but your idea is better.

                    • z_merquise

                      Hey! That’s unfair! Why just Microsoft!?!?!?

                      Hehe, I wish I’m like “Tony-Stark-rich” so that I can buy every game console without any problems.

                      Still, it’s too bad that I totally missed The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 because buying a new console would be too much for me. I haven’t even thought of buying a PS4 even it had games that I’m interested.

                      I’m really a huge fan of Platinum Games that I have every games they released prior to their WiiU exclusives. From Madworld to Metal Gear Rising, I really love those games.

                      Oh yeah, Vanillaware too. It’s another developer that made games that I’m instantly interested. Well, except for that Kumatanchi game for the DS but eh, that’s their least-known game and not an action game anyway.

                    • Six

                      I’m still on the fence about a next-gen machine. I’ve got until Arkham Knight comes out to decide.

                      Which ever one I don’t get this year, I’ll pick up down the road. I’m not rich by any means, but since video games are by and far my biggest hobby, I feel justified in owning all platforms.

                      I’m really excited for whatever Vanillaware does next. I’d really like a Vita port of Odin Sphere though. :P

                    • z_merquise

                      For now it’s just the Muramasa DLCs, which are also awesome by the way.

                      But I’ll look forward to whatever game they’ll develop after those DLCs.

                    • karmacoma

                      I hope to own both someday too. As it stands, while I see more exclusives on the One that catch my attention, I’m prioritizing the PS4 since MS has yet to prove that they can keep getting Japanese exclusives throughout a console’s lifetime.

                      And yeah, I’m still kind of bitter we never got a 360 port of Odin Sphere since I recall an early Kamitani interview where he said it’d be easy since they developed the game at a higher than HD resoluton. ;p

                    • z_merquise

                      Well, there’s Dragon’s Crown which is their first HD game. Highly successful at that too. They made a huge gamble there but I’m glad it sold really well.

                      Dragon’s Crown is my personal Game of the Year for 2013. It’s really good!

                    • karmacoma

                      Same here. Dragon’s Crown is so gorgeous. Although Odin Sphere I think might be a better *game* for its great story, DC is definitely up there as the game with their best gameplay, if not Muramasa.

                    • z_merquise

                      I really love the story in their games but yes, Odin Sphere is the best. Grimgrimoire is pretty fun and Muramasa (though not presented well like their previous games) had good stories too. I really like the recent DLC about the farmer uprising.

                    • Arcana Gear

                      I love all vannilaware games, still have to by DC cause here its too pricey, but these games arent only games… they are art.

                    • karmacoma

                      You should create a US PSN account. It’s occasionally on sale.

                      Well, if you don’t mind digital copies, that is.

                    • Arcana Gear

                      i have one, and i aint against digital, but DC is one game that i want in physical version =D

                    • z_merquise

                      Oh yes. They’re the only game developer I know who are all artists. (if you didn’t count the smaller indie game developers, that is)

                      And the art style in their games is something that is quite beautiful, detailed and also recognizable. And I love that their games mostly inspired from classic arcade games, which I really love too since I was a kid.

                    • Arcana Gear

                      Yeah, that classic machines where the owners always put in the higher difficulty, and i wasnt able to play 10-15 minutes without dying and having to buy a new try, but loved playing regarding that XD

                    • z_merquise

                      Let’s not forget making the arcade machines requiring you to put 2 tokens before playing especially for games that are popular.

                      Those sneaky bastards.

                    • karmacoma

                      Yeah, no doubt. I was so excited when I picked it up on launch day and get a copy of the art book. :D

                    • Six

                      It’s spit pretty evenly for me right now. PS4 has got Lily Bergamo and Guilty Gear Xrd while the Bone has D4 and a PG exclusive.

                      Also, while I’m not really into any of Sony’s first party stuff, I’m a huge Gears of War fan.

                    • karmacoma

                      Yeah, my favorite Sony IP was Wipeout and now that’s over. :(

                      The One also has Quantum Break by Remedy. And Sunset Overdrive!

                      I really wanna see more of Sunset Overdrive. Hopefully E3 delivers on that.

                    • karmacoma

                      Yeah, I love Vanillaware. They and Grasshopper are the two developers I get excited for as soon as I hear they’re developing *anything*. I love Platinum as well, but Anarchy Reigns was a huge disappointment for me. I loved Madworld, but AR just didn’t do it for me. Great soundtrack though.

                    • z_merquise

                      Anarchy may not be one of the highly-recommended games from them but I still find it pretty fun. It just reminds me of the Spawn arcade game by Capcom.

                      I think Anarchy had better combat than Madworld. The biggest fault Anarchy had was that it had no split-screen multiplayer. It would be pretty fun for me and my brother and the online community is dead anyway (sadly).

                    • karmacoma

                      “It just reminds me of the Spawn arcade game by Capcom.”

                      I have a cousin who loves it and said the same thing. I guess that’s my thing. I didn’t play much of Spawn on Dreamcast either. Madworld was 3D Final Fight, which is what I wanted, but Anarchy Reigns was, as you said, Spawn. I liked that it’s multiplayer, but I miss the creative ways you could use weapons and your environment in Madworld. Also, the Sin City look shouldn’t have been dropped.

                    • z_merquise

                      I like the black-and-white comic book artstyle of Madworld. They really went experimental there.

  • Budgiecat

    ugh…..I’m moving so slow with watching Legend of Galactic Heroes…I should have at least been done with season two already. Just watching episode 29 now. Interesting little tidbits are throw in some Anime from time to time.

    Like this Rubinsky guy speaking to his orderly or adjundant or whatever after a Bishop has left a private meeting of his; and so he talks about how fanatical and boring that guy was and how thousands of years ago (LoGH takes place thousands of years in the future), the Christians were able to usurp the Roman Empire by ‘brainwashing their leaders with Religion’, and thus within the anime story; the plan to reuse that method to overthrow the Empire and the Alliance and make them both fall..and then he recants the barbarism of the Crusades and how they killed people of various religions..

    hmmm…interesing sentiment. Considering the Japanese are not a very devout religious country. (well there’s Shintoism but….meh)

    • karmacoma

      I’ve wanted to watch that, but when I saw how long it’d been running, I got scared away.

      • Budgiecat

            Yeah. The original has set the bar impossibly high, but he may still enjoy it anyway. Plus, it will feel a little less intimidating to keep up with each episode as it airs as opposed to just sitting down and watching 110+ episodes right now.

        • adhesive

          I thought it was a reimagining?

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

            Reimagining =/= remake

            They have a different cast now since some of the VAs are dead, so of course it will never truly be the same.

            • adhesive

              I know they’re two different things. I heard that it’d be closer to the novels, and if that’s true then Dusty is definitely gone, among some other differences. It wouldn’t be a remake in that case.

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

                Just have to wait and see, man.

      • adhesive

        It’s the best anime I’ve ever watched. It starts off quite slow though, so you’ll have to be in there for the long haul to truly enjoy it.

        • karmacoma

          Yeah, I’ve heard really good things. Like that it’s intelligent and a legitimately great science fiction show, rather than you know, “good for anime.”

          • adhesive

            You heard right, but it’s very soft science fiction. Most of the series is about humanity rather than science mumbo jumbo.

  • PrinceHeir

    With Kojima Productions is gonna focus more on broader appeal of the Metal Gear Online franchise, what other improvements do you think they should improve by the time Phantom Pain gets released(assuming it will come along Phantom Pain)

    http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=13070

    What they need to improve in the multiplayer.

    No more lock on BS for instant head shots. Seriously i would really want if the game just let us aim for ourselves. Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3(to an extent) did this perfectly and it made the game balance(still has some issues like melee range being ridiculous) It’ss the reason why i played Uncharted 2 MP extensively rather than MGO.

    Improved servers please! I really don’t want to wait 8-16 minutes for a match while in Uncharted MP i would have gotten 3-4 matches already.

    There’s also needs a fighting system that let’s you counter CQC in real time(like in The Boss’s battle in MGS3) instead of having to equip a skill making you invulnerable for low level players to CQC.

    Equipping box needs to have an animation where the character goes into the box for at least 2-3 seconds(but the character needs to stop for the animation to happen) no more invincible BS frames or instant switching. That really killed my interest in the MP where everyone is in a box constantly abusing the invincible frames and doing some auto aim headshot.

    More characters please! Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence and Portable Ops Plus had more characters from series past game than Metal Gear Online could ever hope for. Old Snake vs Raiden? Ocelot vs Para Medic? I can’t believed Konami isn’t taking a page for Resident Evil’s Mercenaries mode where you have characters from past games fighting each other.

    The game needs to implement more team based mechanics. I’m thinking of Team Fortress 2’s medic class where the medic can shoot healing generator for players or maybe add like a healing generator field(a small circle field) and players can go to that field to heal to regenerate their health slowly like in Lost Planet 2.

    Other various game modes. Spies vs Mercs from Splinter Cell series is one of the most unique and amazing MP things i have ever experienced in a game. Sure there’s a mode where Snake has the stealth camo and people will need to find him, but Spies vs Mercs did it much better and more fluid like adding a rader to detect enemies presence, but not position.

    Also dedicated support in all regions. Take notes from Square Enix and its support with FInal Fantasy XIV ARR. Do not follow Sega’s style where Japan is already ahead of Phantasy Star Online 2(episode II i believed?) while the game hasn’t even arrived yet on west officially.

    The amount of new content the JPN had for the MGO community is amazing. Doubt the western version even have half of this amount at all.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfzOR9iccas

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13g3nPaFOp0

    Finally get rid of the Konami ID please. Just make the content through their respective services(PSN/XBLA) it’s clear that Konami as a whole has no clue watsoever in supporting community as a whole.

    • Budgiecat

      Just have a feeling that Kojima is stalling the game so he can do more research on The Division as that will be one of his main competition….

            • Budgiecat

              I disagree

        • Budgiecat

          The Division is an online MP TPS and Kojima has gone on record to being really impressed with it (as well as GTA V) so much so that he felt ‘depressed’ and needed to work harder on MGS V. So as it stands, its his greatest rival right now

          • 罪罰

            Kojima sayz he likes everything even thalia

            • Budgiecat

              Well I dont know who thalia is but MGS V is Kojima’s ego and soul poured in and I dont think he could take it if it got merked by The Division both sales wise and critique wise.This game is a sort of mini crusade for him to ‘win back’ Japanese development notoriety…

              • karmacoma

                If he wants to win back Japanese development credibility, he needs to stop looking towards American/Canadian developers.

                I never understood why Japanese developers thought they had to ape Western developers to succeed. I’ve always thought Itagaki, who was the first “USA USA” developer had the best philosophy. Take concepts that work in America (sex, ultraviolence), but make a distinctly Japanese game around them.

            • karmacoma

              Thalia the Mexican singer? Or am I totally offbase here?

              • 罪罰

                yes.

      Well, the last screens Sal posted I think imply that this much is true, anyhow. I recall seeing Raiden in a few screens as well as blocky PS1 era Psycho Mantis. I guess it could be VR missions, but I find the choice of PS1 character models interesting..

      • PrinceHeir

        Well those are for the Deja Vu mission, but i actually don’t mind using the polygon characters as well!

        RE6 did this perfectly by adding RE2 PS1 Leon and Ada and tons more pixelated characters on the Horizon ^^

        I need to get back to playing RE Mercenaries! i have a lot of fun playing the series even more so than the campaign itself XD

    My PS3 Slim keeps overheating. Strangely this only happens when playing Blazblue CSE. Specifically, it’s happened three times during Challenge Mode play; once a few months ago and twice now within the same hour. The case gets warm in the back. I’m keeping it in an open area, but it’s also right underneath the TV which gets hot quickly. I really have nowhere else to put it.

          …generally….but I remember waiting like almost three months for a game before I canceled it and then they wouldnt refund me the money and then when I gave up and just asked for a different game, they shipped me the wrong one lol. Also recently some other guy here was complaining about them (though he got his refund)….

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bPp7qrBIJ8

    looks like a lot of new content i’ve missed out O__O

    I was planning to buy the Biohazard 6 Special Edition(which has all the DLC content + JPN voice pack)

    http://www.play-asia.com/biohazard-6-special-package-paOS-13-49-en-70-6nil.html

    What i don’t understand is why is the DLC not on disc? what’s make it even worse is that the DLC expired last December 31,2013 even though the game came out in August 2013.

    Seriously? 6 months is not enough time to make the codes expired(it should be at least a year or in some cases forever)

    This would have not been a problem if they had just put all the DLC’s on disc like RE5 Gold Edition.

    Of course i could always get the US PSN Ultimate Edition, but i wanted the voices to have as well for added value.

    Sigh freaking capcom “-____-

    • Budgiecat

      I agree

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Never heard of it.. but sure why not. Eidos should do whatever they want and Square Enix should just let them do it and not detract from their own stuff because of it.

      • karmacoma

        This is slightly off topic, but I feel like they should rename the company Square Eidos. Because even though it was the Square X Enix merger that allowed both companies to survive, Enix has been pretty much dormant the entire time they’ve been together aside from Dragon Quest and the *occasional* tri-Ace game. It almost feels like Eidos has released more games in the short amount of time they’ve been a part of the company than Enix has throughout their entire tenure, although I know that isn’t exactly true since there have been tons of DQ spin offs that haven’t released here.

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

          lol Square Eidos. xD Square Eidonix.

          • Budgiecat

              • Budgiecat

                They made Psychic Force, Darius, Chase H.Q., Bubble Bobble, Ninja Warriors, Bust-A-Groove, Elevator Action, Operation Wolf, Bust a Move, Lady Stalker, Twin Cobra, Fighter’s Impact, Arkanoid, Raystorm, Ninja Hayate, Time Gal and Space Invaders

                • Six

                  Yeah, and some casual shovelware games called Space Invaders and Bubble Bobble. :P

                  • Pyrofrost

                    Hey asshole :p
                    Bubble Bobble was the shit!

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

                  Don’t know what that is either.

                • karmacoma

                  I don’t think they made Bust-A-Groove. They made Puzzle Bobble, which was renamed Bust-A-Move in America, making Metro, Enix (heh), and 989 Studios (long gone Sony US branch) change their dancing game, Bust-A-Move, to Bust-A-Groove .

                  • Budgiecat

                    989 Studios was a U.S. publisher. They only localized the first game, while Enix published all three in Japan and localized the second one. Bust-A-Groove was a Japanese developed game series by Metro if you want to go into pure specifics though but Taito has always been the main funder and publisher.

              • LordKaiser

                This is Taito:

                http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtOiTvGY8A0

                They still release games under their own brand.

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

                  Mmm mm.

        • Pyrofrost

          Yeah, I wouldn’t count on Enix ever being removed from that label under any circumstances.

          That merger and the state of SE (with Enix basically being the face of SE) is very telling about what actually happened. The merger was actually a hostile take over by Enix.
          At the time of the merge, Enix was comfortably standing on its own, while Squaresoft was falling apart. Enix also nearly backed out of the deal because of that; but they didn’t, they managed to come to an agreement.
          Whatever happened behind closed doors, I don’t know; but you can bet your ass Enix came out on top.

          Also, it’s worth noting that Enix has never really developed anything. They were always primarily a publishing house only.

    • Budgiecat

      Ever since that game I always felt “why can’t more Western games do that? Adopt an actual artistic 2D style in 3D instead of always trying to be photo realistic”….

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

      • karmacoma

        Yeah, they were way ahead of the game with that one.

      • Pyrofrost

        I have always felt that way, ever since making characters into real human beings via CG became a thing.

        That’s why I prefer my games to be animated in some way or cell shaded CG can work if done right.

        If I want “real,” I can turn to “real life.”

        The problem is, real life fucking sucks; which is why I spend most of my time in videogames.

        and what I don’t want is my hobby trying to pass itself off as real life. That fucking drives me insane.

        I say all this while liking some games that are guilty of this; but even though I like those games, it’s always a mixed emotion or conflicted feeling I have when playing them.

        I will shut-up now before I start rambling. Feel free to continue my though if you wish.

        • Budgiecat

          I once made a post (not here) of a multitude of worldly real life landscape screenshots when someone had said something similar to what you just said as how ‘real life sucks’ and why would you want to emulate that of which is brown, grey and mostly void of color.

          I think often we lose sight of what is out there because we constantly live in our own self contained rat race ‘bubbles’ and many do not travel and see the rest of the world or lose the desire or motivation to or simply cannot afford to and thus get a jaded look on reality and thus find escapism in fiction.

          That said, I agree though that often too many games vie for an approach to realism but even they fail in this as they too try to emulate what they think the outside world looks like or should look like to them, when if you looked around farther than that, you’d see that the world is far more colorful and radiant than what most of these ultra realistic desaturated uncanny valley games try to evoke…

    So, I’m curious, how did you guys come up with your usernames?

    I love the hell out of some MegaTen; so I just stuck the names of the Jack Bros. together to come up with mine. Pyrofrost has been a name of mine for a very long time, since FFXI (where I also went by Bushidosama and ShinkuTachi).

    How about you guys?

    • Budgiecat

      I already revealed where my name and avatar come from..

      • Pyrofrost

        ok, then there is no need for you to bother.

      • PrinceHeir

        WHERE!?!

        • bloodiOS

          • PrinceHeir

            oh i see!

    • bloodiOS

      Mine was initially supposed to be “bloodiOS”, but forgot to capitalize the letters so it turned out to be “bloodios”. My friend saw that and said “Bloodios” sounds cool since it sounds Latin-like, so I simply decided to stick with it because, hey, pseudo-Latin.

      • Pyrofrost

        It is a cool name, I like it. Looking back, were you going for something dealing with Blood and iOS?

        • Budgiecat

          Yes

          He was going to massacre and trample all creators of iOS games

          it was to be a true bloodbath….

          • Pyrofrost

            I was thinking it would be something along those lines. He is definitely sadistic enough for something like that.

            • bloodiOS

              Hey, hey, hey, I thought it up when I was a kid and I was not that kind of kid xD

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

                I was. o.o

              • Pyrofrost

                I believe we found the real life Michael Myers folks!
                j/k j/k :p

              • Budgiecat

                It’s not your fault

                See, as a young child, you and your calm and happy village were content with enjoying consoles in the golden age surrounded by walls of protection from outside forces until one day the mysterious and evil iOS Titans arrived, pillaging and wrecking everything in site,flooding your friends and family and fellow gamers with free to play microtransactions, pay to win, shallow shovelware advertisement laden games devoid of any hard work and soul and pretty soon everyone was either an angry bird, a flappy bird, crushing on candy, raging on bahamut or figuring out puzzles with baby moe dragons.
                And when even Capcom, Square-Enix and Sega fell victim, you couldn’t take it anymore, so you decided the only way to kill an iOS Titan was to become a Titan, and so you bit down on your thumb and the rest is history….

                • karmacoma

                  Man, Bloodios is awesome.

                • Pyrofrost

                  I want this made into a fucking movie, STAT!

                • bloodiOS

                  Remind me to hire you when I need someone to write my biography.

        • bloodiOS

          It was supposed to be bloody and OS at first but err,… bloodiOS looks cooler. But I guess that doesn’t matter anymore.

          • Pyrofrost

            It’s no problem, just learning more about each other after all ^_^
            Either way, your user is cool. The way it is now, you have what you originally wanted in a way, but with a cool Latin-ish look.

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

            Thought so! >:3

    • PrinceHeir

      I guess originally my name was PrinceofXIII(well that’s my PSN since 2010) due to Final Fantasy Versus XIII at that time.

      Though eventually i grew out of it(still hype for FFXV, but not as crazy like i used to)

      Though i really love the name “Prince” for some reason. Then i thought a way on how to connect it. Then i remembered that a Prince is a Heir to the throne so then i used it for “PrinceHeir”

      Pretty cool huh? XD

      • Pyrofrost

        Yes it is cool ^_^!

    • new_tradition

      My mom told me my real name means “new tradition”, which I thought was pretty cool >3>

      • Pyrofrost

        I agree, that is pretty cool. Not only that, its very telling of what’s needed in the Western world. I like it!

        • new_tradition

          Well, the reason they named me that was kind of weak, but its kind of funny too.

          She told me they had a friend who had a baby just before I popped out and was named what she originally wanted to name me. So they changed a few letters or something to get that new meaning.

          Wanna know what my could’ve-been name means? Butter O_o

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

            Butter? xD

            • new_tradition

              Yep. I don’t hate butter (love it and cook with it when I can), but I can’t help but think I dodged a bullet :P

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

                Heheh. Yah… I am sure it is a pretty name if you don’t translate it or derive it’s meaning. Just like your name is now. Though I still like the translated or whatever name, it is really cool.

          • karmacoma

            What’s your ethnic background? I’m curious what language can go from Butter to New Tradition with the change of a few characters.

            • new_tradition

              East Indian ;D

              • karmacoma

                Ahh, cool. Well, cool name, and story behind it. :)

          • Pyrofrost

            Hey, butter is also very important!

            As someone raised in the land of Cajuns and Creoles, it’s equally as important as seasoning and spices when it comes to cooking. Trust me on this ;)

            • new_tradition

              Oh, definitely. I try to add a little butter when I cook with oil for that flavour ♥

              • Pyrofrost

                That’s very good to hear!
                What really saddens me is that I’ve never had the opportunity to try East Indian cuisine. :(

                • new_tradition

                  Likewise, I’ve never had Cajun food either. I always wanted to make something like a gumbo >3>

                  • Pyrofrost

                    Oh, I’m sure you can handle it.

                    One thing to always keep in mind is that it’s all in the “roux,” and with Gumbo, I happen to prefer a darker roux. Which is most common roux for Gumbo.
                    An Etouffee for example, is something that would use a lighter colored roux.

                    But yeah, the roux is pretty much where all the flavor is packed; so take special care when preparing that part.

                    • new_tradition

                      My main issue about gumbo is the andouille(?) sausage. I have no problem with eating pork, but my mom is super strict and doesn’t want it in our home, so I can’t make it, so I’m trying to find chicken only variations of gumbo, but I can’t figure out what spices to use to replace the sausage then >3>

                    • Pyrofrost

                      As far as the food items you add to it, andouille isn’t actually necessary. You can just make it as you normally would without it.

                      If she ok with shell fish, you can go that route. There is also chicken gumbo as well, which is pretty good; but I’ve personally never made that.

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

      My name is very much tied to Pokemon. Aura comes from a couple things. My favorite Pokemon is Lucario. He is the Aura Pokemon. As well as him being able to sense auras and such. He also has a move called Aura Sphere which is awesome. Gar comes from Gengar which is another awesome Pokemon. Though it has moved down on my list over the years that I’ve been using this alias. The name combined came from that fact that I thought it would be cool to have Gengar using Aura Sphere even though he cannot through normal gameplay. Though I used a hacking program to make one and used it for a while. Though as I said my love for Gengar has lessened over the past few years of using this, which is why I prefer simply being called Aura. I even went so far as to remove the Gar at one point and instead being called Prince Aura. While a nice name, I couldn’t just abandon the original. It is part of me now, and it will forever be so.

      • Pyrofrost

        Cool! In a way we both kinda came up with our names in the same fashion.

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

          Sort of. Yah. xD

    • Ghost Doge

      In my case, the original (Ghost Nomad) came from the military….. Technically. When I was in Italy for two years, I never went to the same bar/club/restaurant twice. It came up in conversation with a few of my buddies and one of them decided to call me a nomad based on the fact that I frequently changed locations. Whenever there’d be a gathering and someone would ask ‘where that one dude is’, my buddy would say that I’m off being a nomad so it kinda stuck. Not a glorious story but it is what it is. Can’t pick your nicknames :P

      Far as the Ghost part…… I really liked Ghost Recon when I was younger >.>

      • Pyrofrost

        Well, I like the story ^_^

        It reminds me of the nickname I had when I worked in retail, “The Obscure JRPG Guy.” Though everyone called on me when it came to any sort of Japanesey-ish game. The name was partially due my love of JRPG games and JRPGs that no one had ever heard of.
        I of course could never use that as a PSN ID or a username, though I guess it could work for a youtube channel; but that was the first nickname I had since the days of being called egg head or watermelon head in elementary school.

        • Ghost Doge

          I’ve been called plenty of things when I was a kid, but nothing unique. Just the usual shitty insults that kids throw around. Obscure sounds like a pretty badass idea though so I’m sure you could work it into something awesome.

          Come to think of it, couple of guys back in high school used to call me Scar face since…. I have scars on my face. Most of them are small and only visible if you look really closely but the major one that stands out is one on my cheek. My dog bit me when I was a kid so I’ve pretty much had that scar all of my life :D

          • MrFinalgamer

            we’re the Scar Face duet! =D

            • Ghost Doge

              Oh hell yeah! I actually like all my scars. Far as the face I have the cheek one, then a couple on my chin, one on my lower lip, one on my nose, another much thinner one on my right cheek, one on my left eyebrow, and two on my forehead though they’re right up against my hairline so they’re generally out of sight, what with having a little bit of hair and such :P

              • MrFinalgamer

                i have mostly on my chin, and my forehead. i do have fairly long hair, so those are never noticed, and one on my upper lip (like the one Ezio has =3). mind if i ask, how did you cut your nose for there to be a scar? XD

                • Ghost Doge

                  Wanna hear the funny thing? That’s the first thing I thought when I played AC2. “Hey, he got his scar the same way as me! And in the same place! IT’S A SIGN!”

                  On the other note, I was swimming one day and decided to see just how long I could last. Ended up going way longer than I probably should have and I barely had the strength to pick myself up out of the water. Ended up losing my grip and smacking face first into some tiles :D

    • MrFinalgamer

      My user name came from my love of FF. i tried Finalgamer first, but it was taken. One of the suggestions added the Mr part, so…yeah.

    • Sevyne

      Not really an interesting backstory about mine. It’s simply an old tag of mine from a band I was in way back in my teen years. Just ended up kind of sticking. Went through several different spellings over the years until I settled on this one about 6 years ago. This one looks more like it could actually be a name of sorts, unlike all of the other variations.

      • Ghost Doge

        On that note, I always liked the name of our band from a few years ago. Sadly it never went anywhere due to all sorts of troubles with band members. While the idea was fun, the execution was just terrible. Almost no chemistry between the lot of us :P

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

      I had to come up with a name for the protagonist in Persona 3. On my first playthrough, I went with something like Keiji Asakura. I can’t remember exactly, but on my second playthrough, I decided to go with Tetsuya as the first name and I thought about the last name for a good 10 minutes or so.

      I’ve always had a harder time coming up with last names for any language. Finally, I put in Hikari and sounded it out and liked the way it rolled off the tongue well, so I stuck with that. After dumping a good 100+ hours into the game, I felt so attached to the main, I decided to go ahead and use the alias for myself.

      I was kind of looking for a new name to use around that point anyway. I had basically just been using Kikumaru or Kikumaru-chan as my name for a while since I was on a Prince of Tennis kick and liked the character, but… That was becoming kind of embarrassing when playing online games since I kept getting asked if I was a girl, lol. Can you imagine how awkward it is to see this huge guy running at you in an FPS title with muscles on top of his muscles that has the name Kikumaru-chan above his head?

      So yeah… That’s pretty much when I set up a new PSN ID and whatnot. It worked out well enough though since my PS3 had died recently anyway, so it was a good way to start fresh all across the board when I got my PS3 back from being repaired. So, I’ve had this alias since 2007… Going on my seventh year with it now.

      This is actually my longest one so far. The second longest one I had was when I was a teenager and it was about five years. That one was Koji Sakujin and I still use it for Gamefaqs since I can’t change my username there, lol.

    • Guest

      Omega was taken from FF games and most JRPGs that somehow end up using that word and Shiro meaning white in Japanese my older tag was Clayfox using parts of my name middle name is fox and my liking of starfox as a kid added to it

    • Elvick

      I was playing Lineage, picked an Elf. Tried to think of an elflike name.

      Elvick came to mind. And it stuck.

      • Pyrofrost

        I like it :3

        Ya know, when I first saw your name, it made me think of Elvish characters, because those have always been my favorite race in the fantasy setting.

        My main character in FFXI was an Elvaan, and main in FFXIV is an Elezen <3

        • Elvick

          Thanks :D

          Elves tend to be my favorite too.

  • bloodiOS

    It’s almost here…

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Tried to play the Hatsune Miku game. >.> That game is hard. No joke.

    • Pyrofrost

      Rhythm games are just like STGs (shmups); in that they are games that require tons of practice and memorization to become truly good at them.

      So if you are enjoying the game, don’t give up ^_^

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        I played the demo, and well it isn’t unfun, and I like the vocaloids. x3 I haven’t decided if I want to buy it. It is only $29.99 so that is a good price. I might end up buying it, like I have a few others to do so with as well. As for shmups… yah I suck at those too, but they are kind of fun.

        • Pyrofrost

          I’m hanging on here for Theatrhythm Curtain Call and P4D :3

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

            Blah. Theatrhythm is still meh to me. Simply because I am so sick of Square fucking with us. But P4D… yah that is kind of why I wanted to try this to see how much I would suck at that game. xD

            • Pyrofrost

              Just keep practice and memorization in mind, and you will do fine ^_^

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

                Memorization isn’t a problem. My timing sucks. xD

                • Pyrofrost

                  Then use that to assist your timing. The songs are going to be the same, and so is the beat pattern. If you memorize the timing, then you should be good to go.

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

                    Hmm… yah I think I just have to keep practicing when I buy the full game, whenever I get around to it.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      One thing to keep in mind is that the timing only changes at difficulty increases, IIRC.
                      Personally, since I have no rhythm, I start these games on easy modo, and practice my way up.

                      It’s the same way I play shmups actually.

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

                      Mhm. lol

  • PrinceHeir

    With Gundam Origins already planned to be shown by this year or next year.

    Do you think they’ll also animate the sequel to the manga Zeta Gundam Definite as well??

    http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/Mobile_Suit_Zeta_Gundam_Define

    like Origins, this is an interpretation, but this time for Zeta.

    I hope so!! More Zeta is always welcome!!!

    • Pyrofrost

      As long as they don’t bother with ZZ sure. Fuck ZZ!

      Give me MSG, ZG, and CCA

      Then after the lovely tribute to Char; they can re-animate F91, and start animating Crossbone and everything having to do with it. :3

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Ha… MSG…

  • Six

    I’d like to think in some hypothetical alternate dimension there exists a Black Rock Shooter game that is worth a squirt of piss.

    http://wanabrar.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Black%E2%98%85Rock-Shooter-Episode-3-gif2.gif

    • jujubee88

      Well, my first thought upon reading your comment is “Is a ‘squirt of piss’ worth a lot or a little to this individual?”

      Secondly, I thought the PSP games were received well be people online. Weren’t they? I mean, it’s not like I ever played them but the screenshots looked like the anime (which I never even watched pasted a few mins of the 1st episode)

      • Six

        The only thing I found redeemable about the PSP game was the CG intro. Other people’s opinions will surely vary (especially on a site like this).

        BRS didn’t need to be a PSP RPG with mutant rail-shooter gameplay made by a C-tier JRPG developer.

        It needs to be a cuhrayzee action game for a less gimped platform.

        Which, of course, will never, ever happen.

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

          Yeah, Ufotable was the only thing that made it good, lol.

          • Six

            The song choice was nice too. It clearly was meant to invoke the high-speed action that Imageepoch failed to deliver.

            I mean, I know it’s not exactly an IP that top-tier developers would be lining up for, but I was still bummed. :/

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

              Well… I’m not on the best of terms with Imageepoch anyway. They were the reason my first Youtube account went down many years ago due to BSR footage and Final Promise Story.

              They didn’t even give me any third party claims or anything like that, nope. They went straight for copyright strikes. Fuck ’em :|

              • Six

                Damn. That’s shit I’d expect from Sega or Nintendo, but not them.

                I’ve never really understood that shit. You’d think studios would want people to see their games.

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

                  Yeah, Sega of Japan kind of rubbed me the wrong way when they gave me a copyright strike recently for my Ryu ga Gotoku: Ishin! gameplay too… So now I’m having to use an alt account for the time being to upload the longer videos.

                  This couldn’t have come at a worse time too. I mean, I’ve got Ground Zeroes coming in soon, then Project Diva F 2nd at the end of the month (fortunately, these will be on my main account since the songs are only 2-3 minutes long anyway), Super Robot Wars Z3, Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories, The Evil Within, Arcana Heart 3: Love Max!!!!!, and I’m sure I’m forgetting something.

                  • Six

                    The Evil Within shouldn’t give you any trouble, since Bethesda seems pretty cool about that stuff (at least, when Angry Joe inquired about it).

                    It seems like it’s mostly the Japanese publishers who have a stick up their ass about it.

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

                      Well, it will give me trouble because I’ll want to record more than 15 minutes of footage for each part :p

                      So yeah… I’m kind of limited on what I can post to my main account at the moment.

            • Pyrofrost

              If you want a good JRPG by Imageepoch; Sol Trigger is fucking ballin. Arc Rise Fantasia is a great game, but the localization (by Ignition) is fucking shit.

              Luminous Arc (series) and 7th Dragon are also pretty sweet.

              Black Rock Shooter and Tokitowa are definitely not the best representatives of Imageepoch’s work, I assure you.

  • jujubee88

    Topic: Which game(s) would you like to see in VR?

    • karmacoma

      Most first person games. Metro 2033/The Last Light, Deus Ex Human Revolution, Skyrim. Anything with a big, detailed world I can explore.

      • jujubee88

        Strapping a thing to your face, you’d think FPS and open world games would be best.

        But I wouldn’t mind playing bite sized chunked games that aren’t first person perspective. Just like how I used my VITA now to play for long times or in intervals, I’d love to play a fighting game on VR and just hone in on the game that way.

    • Six

      I’ll list some franchises instead of individual games.

      The Elder Scrolls
      Fallout
      Borderlands
      id Software FPS titles.
      Far Cry
      Dishonored
      The Metro series
      Valve’s FPS franchises, plus the Portal games.

      • karmacoma

        Oh man, Portal would be fun. And nauseating. :D

        • Six

          I was going to list the Serious Sam games and Flying Wild Hog’s stuff like Shadow Warrior, but they are just so damn fast.

          The Portal games would definitely be a trip, especially Portal 2.

    • Ghost Doge

      I’m gonna be that guy and go with anything that has obscene amounts of fanservice :D

      • jujubee88

        So, Duke Nukem and an FPS version of Onechambara sorta thing?

        • Ghost Doge

          Yes to Onechanbara, no to Duke Nukem. At least in my opinion. Never really been too interested in those games. Far as Onechanbara, so long as we get to play as our own character, I’m down. I don’t want to play from the perspective of one of the ladies since I’d like to be eyeballing them instead!

    • Gigus

      Dead Space and Fatal Frame…….. Siren blood curse but I wanna be able to sleep at night so thats a big maybe XD

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        That would be amazing. o.o Teach them horror douches how it is done. Kick some ass.

        • Gigus

          Blocky RE2 would be awesome too XD

          • jujubee88

            I’ve never played RE2 or Siren games. But I played RE3, and having a 1st person perspective while being chased by Nemesis would make my heart stop >.<

            • Gigus

              lulz if you played re3 then there is no point in going back to raccoon city to play 2 then XD. They are some what the same. I just can’t remember what changes they’ve made in 3 besides graphics.

    Hmm… I’m finding myself regretting having not tried any (rice-field) rat cuisine.

  • Sevyne

    So it looks like that FF Type-0 fan translation has a release date set. I’m sad that it’s not going to be out until august, but it’s nice seeing a date now.

    Also a 5 minute teaser video posted showing off some of the work.

    http://www.skybladecloud.net/type-0-translation-teaser/

    Figured some folks here might still be interested.

    • Budgiecat

      It makes me happy and mad at the same time….

    • new_tradition

      B-Baka, it’s not like I was checking out their blog and forum thread every day or anything >.>

      I’m just so worried SE’s gonna pull some bureaucratic bullshit and come down on them after all the hard work they did on the translation.

      When it was clear they weren’t going to abandon the project, I let myself hope. I don’t want it to be for naught >.<

      • Gigus

        Me too. They’re not really doing anything wrong though. As long as they’re not selling it for cash I think they’ll be fine….. I hope :/

  • Six

    There is a lot of doom and gloom in the game industry, especially as shit gets more and more expensive and as more studios shut their doors or get purchased.

    Do you think your favorite developers and publishers will survive this console generation?

    The two publishers I can say I’m a fan of, ZeniMax and WB Interactive, are probably the only AAA western publishers outside of Valve who aren’t slowly burning to the ground, what with ZeniMax being privately owned and WB being owned by a much larger entity. Also The Elder Scrolls and Batman make fucking bank.

    As for developers, I think all of my favorites will be alright. I’m a little nervous about Platinum Games, but that’s it.

    • Pyrofrost

      Honestly, I think companies will fare much better this gen than they did in 7th gen. I believe this gen will look much much more like 6th gen.

      I’m honestly not worried about the so-called gloom and doom until it has made its way past my door-step.

      • Budgiecat

        Yeah…..Nintendo’s Wii U is already coming off like another Gamecube, XB1 is already coming off like another XBox..1, and PS4 seems to be on the path of being the next PS2…

        • Pyrofrost

          Pretty much.

          • Six

            I can only hope the Xbone’s library is half as good as the OG Xbox’s.

            It had all kinds of weird Japanese exclusives.

            • Pyrofrost

              Yeah, there were some fucking good games on the OG.

              Otogi was the shit.

            • shogunknight

              If its going for Japans heart, it needs to pull off the exclusive games front on them. OG Xbox made contract with Sega for a bunch of games including Gun Valkyrie, 360 with Blue dragon and lost odyssey. We just have to see whats for X1

              • karmacoma

                Yeah, I hope they do something with Mistwalker again. Sega has pretty much married Sony at this point though. Mario X Sonic sports titles aside, pretty much their entire library of exclusives last gen were on PS3.

                • Six

                  Yeah, but that’s a non-issue now since Sega really doesn’t make much for consoles anymore besides Yakuza, Sonic and the occasional Aliens game.

                  • karmacoma

                    True. Actually, if you take away “for consoles,” you can add “Total War” to that list and it’d still be accurate.

                  • Budgiecat

                    yeah because like I said, like SNK, they’re busy being content raking in their money from Pachislot machines and casinos in Japan.

                    …sucks…

            • Budgiecat

              That no one got to play; wasn’t it region locked?
              And I was mostly referring to how insiginificant the original XBox was in comparison to the PS2’s success

            • Sevyne

              Agreed on that one. People can say what they want about the OG, but it had some weird shit on it, and I quite liked it.

    • Budgiecat

      SNK…..lol

      • Six

        No other answer would be acceptable for them.

      • PrinceHeir

        Seriously how long will the pachinko business keep them afloat?

        • Budgiecat

          Pretty long considering thats how Sammy stays in business (Sega)

          • karmacoma

            Yeah, Pachinko in Japan is like slot machines in Vegas. Get in the Pachinko business and you’re pretty much set.

            • Budgiecat

              Its beyond stupid in Japan though (since you dont actually win any money) and everytime someone makes a pachinko/pachislot game for a console/handheld, especially if its based off an Anime I’d rather see a real game made for, I wanna punch them in the face….hard

        • z_merquise

          Well, they’re already hiring people for a new 3D King of Fighters and Samurai Shodown game to home consoles so it’s a good start for them. Though I don’t know if it would be good.

          • Budgiecat

            I heard someone say that before like last year or something and when I went to do research on it….it turned out to be……a pachislot game…

    • karmacoma

      Nervous for Platinum and Vanillaware. Not Grasshopper as much after they’ve been bought by Gungho, although if Gungho goes under post- eventual mobage crash, so too will GHM.
      Not worried about Bioware at all. Nor CD Projekt RED, whom are still small in the large scheme of things, but whom seem to be getting more and more recognition as time goes by (TW3 is only their THIRD game).
      Atlus is safe post Sega buyout. Tango is fine post ZeniMax purchase.

      I guess seeing how long they’ve taken to finish even their first game, I’m kind of worried Valhalla will go under before they even put anything out.

      • Six

        CDPR are going to be massive this console generation. I don’t doubt that for a second.

        I’m not really worried about Vanillaware, personally. They are an incredibly small company, which works in their benefit when it comes to long dev times.

      • Sevyne

        I’m not TOO nervous about Vanillaware. They seem pretty good with a budget and their games do well enough that they turn a decent profit.

        Platinum however I dunno. Their games bomb pretty hard and it’s unfortunate because they’re awesome.

    • PrinceHeir

      Add in Deep Silver.

      They do awesome EU exclusive editions of JPN games as well as Saints Row series ^^

      Wish they have gotten the Red Faction franchise. Would love a open world with true destruction physics(Armageddon was really REALLY close)

      • Six

        Yeah, it’s a shame that Red Faction and Darksiders were bought by a publisher who will probably never do anything with them. :/

        • karmacoma

          Agreed, though it doesn’t seem like anyone else wanted them. Darksiders, at least, which kinda leaves me dumbfounded. Even if it was derivative of other games, the way it combined them all was great. Plus it had fantastic art design by Joe Madureira.

          I never took Atsushi Inaba’s tweets about Darksiders seriously. “I’d like it if it’s cheap” doesn’t sound like “yeah, we need to pick up that studio/franchise.”

          • Six

            Darksiders was a series that never really got the push it needed.

            In the hands of a publisher like Microsoft or Bethesda, I bet it could have done great numbers.

            Or better yet, WB. I bet Rocksteady, NetherRealm or even WB Montreal would have done awesome stuff with the IP.

            Hopefully if Nordic does something with it, they get a good developer to work on it, but I’m not going to hold my breath.

        • Elvick

          They’re releasing a bundle of both Darksiders games I think. To gauge some interest in the series.

          I wish it was on PS4 instead of just re-releasing on PS3/360 though. I mean, how many people already own the games? (I don’t, but would rather have them on PS4)

  • Budgiecat
  • Budgiecat

    Just dug out my Sega Saturn earlier and was playing:

    Fighters Megamix

    Last Bronx

    Virtual Cop

    Daytona USA

    Virtua Fighter 2

    Dead or Alive

    Power Instinct: Groove On Fight

    Panzer Dragoon Saga

    That Panzer Dragoon Saga was cool. I barely played it back in the day but playing it now, it really needs a remake. Wonder why they wasted time with Crimson Dragoon for XB1 and didnt just remake this?

    http://www.htbackdrops.org/v2/albums/userpics/11739/orig_Sega_Saturn_console.jpg

    I really need a second controller..

    Kinda annoying how the Sega Saturn and Dreamcast internal RAM battery was always so weak. How do I replace that?

    • karmacoma

      Excellent choices. As for the battery, from what I remember it was just a watch battery. I think there’s a hatch in the bottom or something? I don’t remember exactly, but I’m pretty sure you didn’t need to unscrew anything to replace them.

      I do kind of regret never buying a RAM cart though, every time I turn my Saturn on and have my saves erased again.

      • Budgiecat

        Oh I think I have the RAM cart its like that 4mb Japanese cart right?

        • karmacoma

          Well, if you have the official 4MB cart I think it just allows you to play 2D titles that require it like X-Men vs Street Fighter. But if it’s like a Pro Action Replay or whatever it might have both game RAM and save RAM

          • Budgiecat

            yeah I think I have both…..2 carts..

            • karmacoma

              Right on. I think you’re set then.

              • Budgiecat

                Just sucks about the watch battery….I dont have any of those lying around at the moment….and my brother came over and I dont have a second controller….meh

                • karmacoma

                  Yeah, though it was pretty impressive at the time. PS1 made you buy memory carts to save while the Saturn saved onto the system RAM.

                  • Budgiecat

                    Honestly I preferred the memory cards…could transport them to friends houses and stuff..

  • Nice Boat
    • Budgiecat

      6/21….

      Which means Dec for the rest of us outside Japan when it eventually hits BR/DVD….sigh

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

      Ugh… This is why I generally hate most anime that have a CG film adaptation. These designs are terrible, imo. Most of them don’t even do a good job at representing the original characters at all.

      • Budgiecat

        Well they easily could have just recreated the CG from the PS2 & PS3 Saint Seiya games, which opt for a 3D’d version of the Anime art but I guess they chose not to

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

          At least those looked closer to the original. These are just… Wat.

          • Budgiecat

            Yeah I know. My point was its obvious they weren’t intentionally going for a direct approach….

  • 9li8

    Good evening. I’m a new member. Been wanting to be a part of Gematsu because the Open Forum looks fun. Pleasure to meet you guys.

    • MrFinalgamer

      welcome to the community! hope you enjoy your stay!

      • 9li8

        Thank you very much for the warm welcome, everyone. :)

        By the way, how do I change my avatar?

        • MrFinalgamer

          i suppose it’s in the “Edit Avatar” section =P

        • KingNigma

          Click on yourself and go to edit profile.

          • 9li8

            Hmm, couldn’t find it.

            Oh well, it’s no biggie.

            • karmacoma
              • 9li8

                “We couldn’t log you in. Please check what you’ve entered.”

                Weird. If I registered through Gematsu, I’m automatically part of Disqus, right?

                • karmacoma

                  I wanna say yes, but it’s possible that you’d need to create a disqus account, then merge the two.

                  • 9li8

                    Sorry for asking so much, but how do I merge the two?

                    • karmacoma

                      I think you get the option once logging in with your disqus account. It’s actually been awhile since I’ve done it so I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful.

                      But I think you merge them in the dashboard, rather than on here.

                    • 9li8

                      Oh, I did it. I merged the two.

    • Sevyne

      Welcome!

    • karmacoma

      Welcome, enjoy your stay. :)

      That’s smart, making introductory posts. I never make any when I join new communities. I just jump right in.

      • KingNigma

        Either that or I just lurk forever until I decide to speak up.

        • karmacoma

          Well yeah, you’ve always got to lurk. ;p
          Otherwise you might not like the members and get in pointless arguments.

          • KingNigma

            This is true. Still, I don’t mind arguments as long as they don’t become unnecessary flame wars.

      • 9li8

        Ah, I actually do that in other communities. I just feel like it this time because there’s a new Open Forum.

    • Pyrofrost

      Welcome to the place where all your dreams will come true~

      • Budgiecat

        Well that can’t be totally true…

        …I mean, this place has no Shenmue III….

        • Pyrofrost

          Shenmue is dead

          • Budgiecat

            I disagree

            • Wolf Star

              There’s no Shenmue 5 yet.. :P hehe localization

              • karmacoma

                5? That would mean we would’ve been blessed with 3 at some point.
                How I long to live in this alternate reality.

                • Wolf Star

                  I meant Yakuza 5 sorry. I never played Shenmue series and people are still at Shenue 3. I still don’t know why.

                  • karmacoma

                    Because Yakuza is not a suitable replacement. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a great series (although I can get burnt out on it if I get distracted with the side quests).

                    But what Yakuza takes from Shenmue is only the shops and arcade machines. It doesn’t have the sense of mystery, its fighting isn’t as deep, you can’t grab random items and inspect them closely for clues, you can’t race forklifts or play actual arcades (like OutRun, Space Harrier or Hang-On).

                    In some ways, L.A. Noire is a better spiritual successor to Shenmue, with the way investigations proceed. Looking up people’s phone numbers and clues in your journal, questioning people thought to be connected to a crime.

                    If we could combine L.A. Noire and Yakuza, and get AM2 to develop the combat, we’d have Shenmue.

                    Only we still wouldn’t have avenged Ryo Hazuki’s father.

                    • Wolf Star

                      umm what’s Shemue again? Don’t mind me asking?? lol also I liked LA Noire the facial expression is spot on it’s like real life xD

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

                      Shenmue* It is a game about a boy who is out for vengeance against the man who killed his father.

                      Shenmue. Pretty much the game that almost killed Sega. Although we really have Peter Moore and Microsoft to blame for them pulling out of the hardware business.

        • karmacoma
      • 9li8

        So I can lose my virginity to a hot girl here?

        • KingNigma

          If you talk to the right people why not :)

          • Pyrofrost

            KingNigma-sama knows~

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

          …Dude… >_<;

          • Pyrofrost

            Looks like we have a candidate.
            *Auragar is love~~~~

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

              I-I… we haven’t even had a date yet. Too fast for me. xP

              • Pyrofrost

                Not to worry, we can run this like an escort service. Then the two of you don’t need to worry about getting to know each other. Everybody wins!

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

                  Nah. That isn’t my style. :p I like getting to know any potential partner first.

                  • Pyrofrost

                    Awww, and when I think of the money that could be made

        • karmacoma

          Hah, did you edit the hot girl in part later? I could’ve sworn it just said ended at virginity earlier.

          If you weren’t so specific, it might’ve been arranged. ;p

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

            I am sure New is an attractive young woman. But she probably won’t go for that. xD

            • karmacoma

              Hah, I almost said something to that extent.
              The hot girl part might be more difficult. Not that I doubt any of the ladies here are attractive, just not necessarily willing. ;p
              But there’s always pervs on every website.*

              * also, I know this is all a joke, but I thought I’d mention it before anyone thought I was being serious. ;p

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

                xD I would hope people know that we are all joking. It could be awkward otherwise. I mean I act silly and pretend to be interested in everybody here. But I am straight and online just sucks. But I still do honestly believe New is attractive. As all women* are beautiful.
                *Women meaning those who aren’t stupid bitches or skanks.

                • karmacoma

                  Skanks can be beautiful too, just not necessarily someone you’d want to marry. ;p

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

                    Nah to me skanks are ugly.

        • Ghost Doge

          With enough alcohol, @Budgiecat can look like a hot girl.

                      I wasn’t really dedicated, but I dabbled a bit.

                      I wanna get back to writing, but after my PC crashed (along with dozens of half scribbled story ideas and random scenes gone), I haven’t really felt motivated enough to.

                      More annoying ’cause I have all these ideas in my head! >.<

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

                      lol Right. I am not very serious either. I have seen some people. They write like a whole novel each reply they send.

                      Oh that must have sucked… I keep my works in several places, including the cloud so hopefully I don’t have to worry. I know the feeling though.

                      Yah. I feel the same, but I cannot seem to be motivated enough or have enough free time. We should totally swap ideas sometime, Butter (sorry, had to). xP

                      I know it wasn’t really directed towards me, but I’ve been an avid RPer for over 10 years. I don’t really RP as much these days, simply because I’ve been in a bit of a slump with partners lately. I keep finding incompetent ones or people that RP with me once or twice and seem to fall off the face of the Earth.

                      So, I’ve honestly been losing interest in it as of lately.

                      As much as I enjoy writing (when I do), if I’m roleplaying… I don’t particularly like knowing every time their character’s hair shifts or what color each blade of grass is, lol. I can multi-para, but I’d really rather not. It’s kind of boring having each of us take 10+ minutes just to reply back and forth to each other.

                      So, I usually just stick to para play these days. You know, somewhere between the 4-7 line range. I guess that’s my sweetspot right now.

        I like most of the songs I’ve heard so far. Actually only listened to one (Hit in the USA, BECK’s opening theme) and then went straight to the internet so I can get my hands on some of their albums. Only got one so far but I like all 23 songs on it, so that’s some progress :D

        • 9li8

          Try Tonight Tonight Tonight.

          A good OP for mediocre anime.

          • Ghost Doge

            That would be track #12 on the album I purchased. I was listening to it the other day in the car and my best friend said he recognized the song, so I learned something new :P

            • 9li8

              By the way, have you tried listening to The Pillows and The Bawdies?

              • Ghost Doge

                First time hearing of ’em. Gonna make sure to check them out.

                • 9li8

                  If you watch the anime FLCL, you can hear a couple of The Pillows’ songs in it.

                  Also, The Bawdies is like Japanese Beatles wannabe.

                  • Ghost Doge

                    I watched that anime when it originally aired on Adult Swim and it confused the fuck out of me. Should probably watch it again though.

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

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

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

    Soooo… I guess he’s basically asking me if I’m going to stay up the rest of the night to beat the game, lol. I do kind of hate these whole “If you proceed beyond this point, there’s no turning back.” situations though. I always have a nagging feeling in the back of my mind that there was something else I wanted to do.

    Well, I guess that’s what multiple save files are for, haha.

    EDIT: By the way, this is Shadowrun Returns: Dragonfall for those unfamiliar with the game.

    so, what do you all think about the Wii U being the new Virtual Boy for Nintendo? (there’s a lot of fanboys in the comments)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FS1p7W5dmBE

    • 9li8

      “the Wii U being the new Virtual Boy”
      So Wii U is the VR for PS4 all along?

      Magnificent plot twist.

    • karmacoma

      Problem with his comparison is that the Wii U isn’t a gimmick. It isn’t difficult to come up with ways to integrate the controller because at its core, the Wii U is an HD DS. The initial experimentation era where developers would come to terms with the hardware has already happened for many years on the DS.

      The problem is the hardware. Not even the GPU, as most developers will agree that it’s a fair amount more powerful than the 360 and PS3, if not at One or PS4 levels. But the CPU is painfully slow. It makes multiplatform games difficult to translate to the Wii U, especially open world games where the CPU is most important. The GPU is fine, as Nintendo has been releasing 1080p titles recenty, most of them 60fps. But those are developed exclusively for the U. And seeing as 3rd parties have been on full multiplatform mode for near a decade now, it puts the U in an uncomfortable spot where porting titles requires much more work. Especially now that the One and PS4 are out with massively better specs.

      You can make the argument that the world wasn’t ready for the Virtual Boy, but there’s nothing overly complicated about the Wii U.

      • Elvick

        To be fair, the “HD DS” concept falls on it’s face due to there not being a fixed distance between the television and the gamepad. So it’s usefulness is minimized based on how you hold the controller. It’s not very useful if you have to move your head or the controller directly to just check a map. Where on the DS/3DS you’d just do a quick glance down.

        In concept it’s the same, but in practice it’s not as good.

  • bloodiOS

    Ah, man~~ Hentai works truly are fascinating! Vanilla, yaoi, yuri, guro, netorare, lolicon, soukan, bestiality, scat, non-consent, whatever, everything is wankable material. It’s really amazing how things that disgust me in the real world can become so fucking enjoyable in the hentai world.

    • Ghost Doge

      I almost don’t want to agree but you’re too damn correct in your statement and saying anything other than that would be a plain lie.

    • 9li8

      Netorare works always have better artwork than vanilla ones. Used to be frustrated about it, but now I’m used to it.

    • MrFinalgamer
    • PrinceHeir

      I enjoyed every works in the hentai world.

      Since i can distinguished it from the real world.

      Guro i can read, but i’m not into that genre.

      The art in most NTR’s is freaking godly though.

      • Pekola

        The only thing I understood from all this is hentai.

        • bloodiOS

          I’m pretty sure I left some English words in my original post.

          • Pekola

            Oh, I meant PrinceHeir. I understood some of what you said, tho.

            Nice of you both to make the distinction that all of that is more like role-playing and not actually being into…well, all of that.

            • bloodiOS

              Ah, I see. Well, for me, it’s not role-playing because that would put it on the same level as porn, which is just simulation, you know, fake stuffs. I treat everything in the hentai world as a different reality that has no connection with the real world, which allows me to truly enjoy all the depravity happening in it without the slightest bit of empathy (though I do try to put myself into the shoes of NTR’s protagonists.)

      • 9li8

        “The art in most NTR’s is freaking godly though.”

        EXACTLY. Especially Takeda Hiromitsu and Sanagi Torajirou’s works.

        • PrinceHeir

          add in Tsukino Jyogi,Nagare Ippon, MTSP and the likes

          • bloodiOS

            Not sure about Tsukino Jyogi and NTR… I mean, there are some works but, it’s mostly vanilla isn’t it? Nagare Ippon is the shit.

            • PrinceHeir

              The work “Chijou No Hito” and “B38C”

              Well B38C is more on two girls who abuses a boy, then laters falls in love with him and the two fight in order to get their love.

              Chijou No Hito is definitely NTR though.

              Yeah Nagare Ippon doesn’t have any vanilla i know off XD

              • bloodiOS

                Have you read Boku no Yayoi-san yet? Good NTR stuffs. I also found Jyogi’s Yasashii Oba no Shitsukekata to be pretty fun by the way. Also, you should try Narita Kyousha’s Nine To Five Lover (good incest and milf, I tell ya.)

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

      I don’t think Sal or Zero would really appreciate me linking to a hentai site that I’m a part of, sooooo… I’ve decided to simply copy and paste my short story onto Pastebin instead if you’d like to read it. I’m not sure if you’re fond of Lightning or Lumina, but I wrote up a short story in December if you’d like to read it. Bear in mind, it is NSFW since there is some graphic language and such involved.

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

              Yeah. If I had an artist and I was awesome, I could have easily made this like a 15-20 page doujinshi.

              EDIT: I could probably even throw in a page or two showing artwork with an Anubis and Lightning too. You know, like an omake of sorts I guess.

                      Well, I just meant that because they have so much action and focus heavily on ahegao and such, they would be a good way to break in a newbie. Just throw them right into the action and if they can handle that, they can handle the more tame ones for sure, haha.

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

                      Well you certainly at least read the comments then. I’ve not told people here my name yet have I?

                    • 9li8

                      ….You do know your profile has a twitter button, right?

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

                      Sure. I linked my account. But most people don’t click it.

                    • 9li8

                      Yeah, I clicked some profiles here on a whim. I found Tetsuya Hikari’s YouTube channel which is cool, so I tried clicking more profiles, who knows I might be lead to an interesting page.

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

                      Mmm… I see.

                      Yet.

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

                      When would they be able to? Even if I am asleep I would wake up before they could hurt me.

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

                      I’m sure that’s what everybody thought when they went to sleep the night they were smothered to death by their own pillow XD

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

                      A pillow cannot smother you…

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari
                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Well I mean a person using a pillow could, but not the pillow by itself. Unless there is some voodoo shit I don’t know about.

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

                      Well, people have been known to actually die from being smothered by falling asleep while facing towards their couch since their face is in such a small space, unable to get enough oxygen while they sleep.

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

                      Really? o.o You’d think their subconcious would realize, “oh fuck we are dying”. Or whatever.

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

                      Lol. You’d think so, yes, but dreams are capable of killing you too. By that logic, you should wake yourself up before your brain tricks you into thinking you’re dead, but sometimes that’s not the case.

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

                      Yah… dreams are scary things.

      Come to the dark side, my child.

      Between some scripts I have written, short stories, and artwork I’ve colored… I’d say I have a little too much knowledge, haha. Well, that combined with what I’ve actually seen or discovered on my own anyway~

        Right…

    • karmacoma

      Yeah, I’m not into hentai either.
      Still didn’t skip the chance at making a stupid pun though. ;p

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Right.

  • bloodiOS

    I’ve just caught sight of a movie named The Butterfly Effect. Anyone here think it’s worth watching?

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

      Hrm… I have heard some good things from a couple of friends about it, but I can’t honestly say I’ve seen it.

    • Gigus

      No.

    • Pekola

      Hmm…I didn’t like it, personally.

    • Anime10121

      Decent flick, didn’t feel like my time was wasted after watching it, so it must have at least been good enough…

  • Pekola

    SOOOO About them not-hentai animu and mango.

    I recently watched Witch Hunter Robin and liked all of it, except some of the reveals.

    I’ve been thinking about getting into more anime, but not sure which ones. I just don’t want to waste my time watching something that doesn’t satisfy me.

    • adhesive

      What kind of anime are you looking for?

      • Pekola

        Thanks! I’m really interested in something that isn’t too predictable and kiddish.

        Off the top of my head, here’s some anime I really enjoyed:

        Blood +
        Blood C (though all that gore eck)
        Earth Maiden Arjuna
        Bubblegum Crisis
        Revolutionary Girl Utena
        Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit
        Mahou Shojou Madoka Magica

        There’s others, but I figure that should be enough.

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          Awesome, ones you should try. Cowboy Bebop, Ergo Proxy, Bacano, Trigun, and maybe Monster

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Love WHR, what type of shows or games do you like?Im usually pretty good with recommendations

      • Pekola

        Posted them below.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      I haven’t watched that series in years. Brings back fond memories though, I enjoyed it.

  • PrinceHeir

    Damn all these hentai discussions reminds me that i haven’t visited my favorite website for a month now!!

    I’ll try and come back once more today XD

    • 9li8

      Sadpanda?

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

      My vote is on e-hentai or HF @w@

      • PrinceHeir

        ehh E-hentai requires you to register to view some of the work. While most of the rare ones are there, i really don’t like how the site is designed.

        HF?? HentaiFools? XD

        Fakku is good for online viewing, but ehh weak selection and most of the works they haven’t updated it to the uncensored ones.

        lovehentai is also another good site for online viewing, but it’s slow as hell.

        Doujin Moe, YQ-II, Saha are the translators i know who releases tons of stuff.

        But Mine’s mostly HR, the best in the business. Oliver gets everything from everywhere and organizes it in such a nice and well order.

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

          HF = HentaiFoundry

          Silly.

          • PrinceHeir

            never heard of that site.

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

              It’s not that crazy, but some of my favorite H artists are there, so I mainly use it for that. Plus, I decided I’d use that site to post H stories, but I’ve only posted one and a chapter to a Watamote short story too.

              I haven’t really felt like writing much these days though, sooooo… I don’t even know if I’ll ever finish that one >.>

        • bloodiOS

          I do remember grabbing stuffs from Hentai Rules from times to times but I mostly use EH since it’s easier to find stuffs there.

          • PrinceHeir

            It’s much better there though. Sure it may take awhile to upload the ones from e-hentai, but mostly they always update it to the best version available.

            Tons of download options, author pages so you can grabe the older to newer works. Not to mention the community is friendly as hell ^^

            More people should go there if they want their hentai fix XD

      • bloodiOS

        I didn’t like how EH removed a good chunk of Nishi Iori’s works.

    • Ghost Doge

      Gelbooru for the win. Porn aside, often times I end up finding really awesome SFW images that tend to make badass laptop wallpapers/phone backgrounds/Vita wallpapers :D

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

        Safebooru :o

        • Ghost Doge

          Pssh, fuck that. The wallpapers are a bonus. I’m there for the kinky shit!

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

            I just meant safebooru would be the good alternative for SFW wallpapers, lol.

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

              Then again… I do most of my image browsing on Pixiv anyway since it’s usually posted there first 9 times out of 10.

              • Ghost Doge

                The last time I tried using Pixiv, the layout was confusing as hell. I’ve seen some awesome stuff on there that I couldn’t find anywhere else though, so I suppose it’s worth a revisit.

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

                  Did you use the JP or NA version?

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

                    The only reason I ask is because the NA version is kind of trash, honestly. They wouldn’t even let me upload my R18 works there because they have a policy against hentai, I guess =3=

                    • Ghost Doge

                      JP. Found the site through a friend. She referred me to it when I asked for a new source of porn since I’d seen all I wanted to see from Gelbooru :D

                    • 9li8

                      A girl refers you to a source of porn.

                      Interesting.

                    • Ghost Doge

                      I’ve made some interesting friends over the years, that’s for sure :D

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

                      Well, I haven’t been bookmarking my artists’ new works lately (for a few months now actually), but you’re free to bookmark me if you ever decide to make an account or whatever. I haven’t colored anything in a few months though.

                      I guess I’m sort of on a hiatus or something @w@

                      http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=3712910

                    • Ghost Doge

                      Done. I always bookmark so I can keep track of artists I’m interested in. Even found some of them on deviantArt even though I probably have…. Whatever the max number of notifications you could have on that site is. I haven’t logged on in four and a half years >.>

                • 9li8

                  Do revisit it. Pixiv is addicting at times. Saved tons of pics from there and followed hundreds of artists.

  • MrFinalgamer

    man, zero is going to have such a nice time reading through all these hentai related comments ;D

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Is he like me? Is so then yes he is.

      • MrFinalgamer

        i’m not really sure…

    • Ghost Doge

      Hey, most of them are….. Acceptable…. I suppose. The recent ones where we cited our sources might cause an issue though.

      • MrFinalgamer

        …or he might like you more. depends if he’s into that kind of stuff ;)

        • Ghost Doge

          You never know! Some of the nicest people I’ve known turned out to be really, really, REALLY fuckin’ weird. And not in a bad way :P

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

        Yeah… That’s why I just said ‘HF’ earlier, but I had to explain what that meant. Still, it could go either way, I guess, lol. I mean, at least it wasn’t like, “Oh man! I loved the part where she was bent over the table and-”

        That would have definitely been moderated, no doubt :p

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

      Well, we didn’t exactly use explicit terms or anything like that, so it should be fine.

  • bloodiOS

    Gah! I need that last chapter of Boku no Yayoi-san!

  • bloodiOS

    Anyone feels like pre-ordering the Collector’s Edition of Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster from some place other than Square Enix’s online store?

    http://www.gallerynucleus.com/detail/16819

    Decide quickly, folks. There are only 25 available.

  • bloodiOS

    So, has anyone watched Kara no Kyoukai: Mirai Fukuin yet?

    http://utw.me/2014/03/08/kara-no-kyoukai-future-blessing-mirai-fukuin/

    • Ghost Doge

      Downloading it right now. Looks interesting, but I just hope I have enough time to watch it later today >.>

    • shogunknight

      whos the one in the middle? is this a continuation or a new season? i stopped at episode 6

      • bloodiOS

        No idea. I’ve just started downloading it myself. You should watch episode 7 first though.

        • shogunknight

          I wish tsukihime can be rebooted to have nice animation just like kara no kyoukai. I kind of like this shiki though, not sure but they seem to be related

          • bloodiOS

            Well, they both have the Chokushi no Magan. Anyway, before a Tsukihime reboot, I wish Kara no Kyoukai would have a proper remaster instead of the shitastic job they did with the Blu-ray release. Talking about reboot makes me remember that Type-Moon is also working on the remake of Tsukihime, not sure when will they be done with that though…

  • MrFinalgamer

    so i’ve got bad news for ya’ll. it looks like Persona 2 Innocent Sin might get removed from PSN due to hackers finding an exploit in it that lets you do homebrew on vita. if this is true, and you were planning on getting the game, GET IT NOW!

    • bloodiOS

      Last I heard, it’s temporary.

      • MrFinalgamer

        oh really? …well then i hope you’re right about that. still, the game is $10 right now, it’s a great price for anyone to get it ;)

        • bloodiOS

          Honestly though, no skin off my nose since I got the physical copy xD

          • MrFinalgamer

            this could always be a problem for people that want their Vita’s to be a Persona machine =P (not counting Arena…)

            • shogunknight

              Im almost certain one day we will hear a vita port of P4A

              • bloodiOS

                I think the opportunity is no longer there, given that P4AU will be coming out soon. The best folks can hope for is that there will be an enhanced version of P4AU released for PS4 and Vita later on.

        I’m glad you liked it :3

        • TheBlackRabbit

          Yea i think i might check out the rest of this ost, :)

  • EX+

    Anyone else do that SE user feedback questionnaire?
    I criticised there marketing strategy and things of that nature. I complained about FF15.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      I complained about mobile games.

      • EX+

        I completely forgot about that. But nice!
        I’m not sure how far or complaints will get to them though.

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          Hopefully they get something done

      • Elvick

        I pretended I didn’t play any, since I knew that information would be misused. :p

        And put it above facebook, but below everything else. Even Xbone and Wii U, which I don’t have.

  • EX+

    I hope Final Fantasy XV doesn’t have anything too depressing. Sure, Cor can die and maybe even Stella could (I know @Bloodios would probably hate that) but Noctis, Prompto, Gladioulus and Ignis? No thank you.
    I wouldn’t mind it if Ignis betrayed Noctis in the end.

    • Nice Boat

      From what I read the premise is dark. Noctis has a curse that allows him to see people’s deaths so….

      • EX+

        Oh I expect it to be dark. Quite dark. But I really don’t want another depressing ending or story in general.
        Like I said. A few deaths here and there. Like Regis. I think it would show character development if he sacrificed himself, even though he wanted to be the last king in the history of Luciis.

        • Nice Boat

          King Regis’ death would be quite predictable for me. I would like Square to finally show a stable father and son relationship.

      • EX+

        By the way, have you seen the type-0 ending?

        • Nice Boat

          Nope

        • Nice Boat

          But I head it’s one FF’s saddest endings next to FF13-2

    • DarkLegacy

      Bloodios is not the only one. I would hate Stella dying too. And I would hate Noctis dying too

      • EX+

        Some people think that Noct will kill himself if Stella dies.
        That’s just too extreme for a mainline FF.

        • DarkLegacy

          Idk if that will happen

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

          Romeo and Juliet. Kinda.

        • Anime10121

          It’d be different sure, but VersusXV was always meant to go “beyond” what a normal Final Fantasy “is” anyway! They are supposedly not turning down its theme’s just because of the name change :)

          I’d hate to see either Stella or Noct die, ESPECIALLY STELLA (too cute to die :( ), but I could accept it if it was done well enough…

    • bloodiOS

      Err… I hope my stellar girl would kill the duckbutt herself.

    • Anime10121

      “maybe even Stella could”… OK YOU JUST MADE URSELF AN ENEMY >:(

      • DarkLegacy

        I know how you feel. I don’t want her dying too

      • EX+

        I have nothing against Stella. It’d just set a very good character development path for Noctis. Seeing that light when Stella dies would make him very angry. Maybe to the point where he starts being more aggressive and hostile to his enemies. He looked like he was about to smirk at the end of the 2011 trailer when he was talking with Ignis about getting revenge for something. Probably the death of his father or damage to Luciis.
        I think the camera focused on Ignis because he sensed Noctis’ change in mood. Eventually, Noct would need to understand that brutality isn’t going to solve problems and that he needs to take a different approach to end the war.
        Then again, Stella has a very small chance of dying, so I wouldn’t bet on it.

        • Anime10121

          Lol, I know :P

          Still rather not even think of Stella dying though, she’s the best looking Nomura FF female since Rinoa!

          But yeah, I can guarantee you he was smiling when he was talking about getting revenge, as most people when they talk about getting revenge, they’re happy thinking about their “enemy’s” demise.

      Watching Zeta Gundam, i actually would want this to be as depressing!

      Come on, we haven’t gotten a really dark and depressing FF game since maybe FFVII or FFVI, but even then it’s not even close compared to the likes of Zeta Gundam or even the Xeno series.

      Imagine the meltdown if Noctis or Stella dies towards the end? I think it will definitely bring some interesting discussions about the series direction ^^

      • Budgiecat

        Zeta? Wait till you get to V Gundam….

        • PrinceHeir

          Haha can’t wait ^^

        • LordKaiser

          V Gundam was a let down. I hate that mobile suit with passion. The stupidity of launching the mobile suit legs on catapults to catch them mid air… -_-. Also for this series to be after Crossbone Gundam, everything looks low tech.

      Cor is the sexiest one, what are you on!?

      The others can die, tho.

      • EX+

        I say Cor can die because of his age.
        He’s 42 and in Japan, men of the age of 42 are said to go through grave misfortune.

    • new_tradition

      Everyone dies and Noctis falls into eternal slumber to be the pillar of the world while not having to deal with all the losses.

      Or not, who knows :P

      I’m just not 100% convinced Noctis and Stella are gonna have much of a romantic angle, or at least it won’t be a major focus. Childhood acquaintances who happen to have similar fates, similar backgrounds, and fight each other for their own version of the greater good? I could dig that, but that takes away from the emotional impact…

      (I keep imaging Stella and Ignis hooking up for some reason; that and I kind of want Noct and Stella to be siblings, olol)

      Plus Nomura stressed friendship being the main relationship he’ll focus on. Whether that’s the boys bro-ing it up and what not, I dunno…

      • EX+

        Oh hell no. Ignis can’t be doing that.

      I don’t want”open world” in the traditional sense. That would weaken every other aspect of the game by necessity.

      I think the open -environments- we are getting are perfect.

    Which developers do you think will flourish this console generation? (pics)

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      What is the first dev? Based on the pictures I mean.

      • Six

        From Software. Then it’s Arc System Works, CD Projekt RED, Atlus and Bethesda Game Studios.

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

          I thought it was From Software. But yah I knew the rest. Thank you.

    • DesmaX

      Pretty sure Rockstar will blow everyone minds.

      Just what they managed to archieve with GTA V on current-gen…

      (Wait, didn’t see that there were pics. Let me refresh)

      • Six

        Yeah, but that one is pretty obvious. No one will be able to top Rockstar.

      • Anime10121

        Cant wait for the first next gen GTA! Hope its more like V than 4 though… 4 took itself far too seriously and suffered for it, V was like a proper return to form from VC and SA!

          • Anime10121

            But I didnt really care much for RDR (I know, le gasp) :(

            However, I can say that it was another extremely well built game by Rockstar, I’ve just never been that into the “wild west” theme…

            • Six

              They’ve thrown around the idea of a sci-fi game if they can think of “something to say”.

              Rockstar would get all the monies for a sci-fi sandbox game.

              • Anime10121

                All of my yes, want, need, and FUCKING CASH!!! Get to it Rockstar!

          • karmacoma

            Man, Red Dead Redemption was so cool.
            I really should play through Undead Nightmare at some point, but the main story ended on such a high note that I didn’t want to ruin it.

    • Anime10121

      Activision (CoD prints money)
      Namco Bandai because Namco Bandai knows how to run their company.
      Atlus, because they wont release a next gen game til its almost over :P
      And that’s pretty much it…

      I’d LOVE to see Square succeed, but something tells me FFXV nor KH3 are going to be anywhere near the success they’d need them to be to continue developing “high quality graphical beasts” :(
      But I’ll hope for the best, especially with the news that TR just reached 6 mil in sales (though it took price drops for it to happen)…

      • Six

        Yeah, Namco Bandai seems to be the one major Japanese publisher who isn’t slowly being run into the ground.

        • Anime10121

          Its because they know their audience and dont try to cater to “other” crowds in order to achieve a bajillion sales. Namco Bandai seems to be going the route I wish more Japanese devs would have went last gen instead of “westernizing” their games, they stuck to what they knew and made games like they always had.

          I mean, if a business model aint broke, why try to fix it…

          They didnt really “grow” their audiences of any game/series, but they also didnt lose a lot of fans or potential sales by trying to imitate western gaming.

          • Six

            I hope the success of Dark Souls leaves them open to trying new things though. They are pretty much my number once choice when it comes to who should publish Devil’s Third.

            Also, with you mentioning Activision above, you should have also listed Destiny.

            That game is going to be MASSIVE.

            • Anime10121

              Oh I’m not saying they cant try knew things, as publishing Dark Souls was a fantastically smart move on their behalf. I’m just saying that they arent trying to make their core franchises something entirely different to please what they hope the mass market wants.

              Man its been so long since I’ve seen Devils Third, I wouldnt even remember what it looked like if I saw an image of it :/ Still want to see more though, as Itagaki has made some FINE franchises at Tecmo!

              Oh, I didnt forget Destiny, as it and Titan Fall are the first and ONLY online multiplayer-only games to catch my eye in an appealing light. Though for the sheer reasoning that it hasn’t been a proven money bag for Acti though, I only listed CoD. I have no reason to believe it wont be a massive success though, but as of right now, CoD and Skylanders are probably their biggest loaded shotguns :P

              • Six

                Yeah, no one has seen Devil’s Third since E3 2010. Itagaki says it’ll be out this year though.

                I think a lot of people will the bummed though, when they realize that it isn’t a Ninja Gaiden clone and it’s actually a third-person shooter with melee combat and online multiplayer. :P

                • Anime10121

                  Now I do remember at least that much from the trailers, but I want to see MOAR! Though honestly, Itagaki’s never really done anything to make me doubt his ability to make a great game, so I’m likely to bite when it releases even if by the nonexistent chance that it just “drops” into gamestores with no promotion whatsoever (translation, I’d risk the $60 on an Itagaki game based solely on the fact that he helmed it, and his past creations being so gud)…

                  However, I honestly believe Devils Third is gonna be one of Microsoft’s big exclusive guns for the Xbone, and if thats the case, I’ll have to just wait on it until the Xbone comes down in price a bit…

                  • Six

                    Yeah, the fact that he says it’ll be out this year but we haven’t seen it in so long makes me think that Microsoft has picked it up, since they’d have a reason to hold it close to their chest.

                    It would fill the gap that’ll be left by Gears of War nicely too, since the next entry in that isn’t supposed to be out for a good while.

            • Budgiecat

              I would like From to make Another Century’s Episode PS4 game (the last one wasn’t made by them), and No Man’s Sky looks more impressive to me than Destiny “I’m Halo’s twin”

              • PrinceHeir

                YES PLEASE!!

                Imagine space battles from the Unicorn game, plus with characters from all the mech games including Armored Core, Xenosaga and Zone of the Enders.

                That would be mu dream mech game!

                Destiny is amazing though! I was hoping they would add mechs(yeah yeah i know titanfall) but more of warhawk style where you can go shoot people on ground, but you can also do mech battles on air or even space.

                Of course that would cause a lot of balance issues and all XD

            • karmacoma

              “hey are pretty much my number once choice when it comes to who should publish Devil’s Third.”

              Oh man, that awkward first moment when Itagaki steps into the Namco building..

              But I agree with Anime10121. Even though it was originally announced as multiplatform, Microsoft would be foolish not to swipe it up as an exclusive considering MS and Itagaki’s long history together.

          • 9li8

            I agree with this. Unlike Square and Capcom, Bandai Namco still care very much about console game industry instead of pushing for social mobile gaming all the time or trying to appeal to the western audience.

            • Budgiecat

              they’ve had their hiccups:

              Putting Hearts R on iOS
              Knight’s Contract
              Time Crisis Razing Storm (looked like they were trying real hard to channel CoD there)
              Published Clash of the Titans movie game
              Cancellation of Mobile Ops and the disaster that was Crossfire

              • Anime10121

                Well to be fair, Hearts R was on a console already first, so I’m ok with it being on mobile IN ADDITION to a console (although either way, i’ll never play it cuz it’ll never be localized) :P

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Activision can eat dick.
        Anyways. Atlus releases game in the “next” gen at it’s beginning. They did for 3DS at least.

        • Anime10121

          I’m no fan of Activision either (well not since the original THPS trilogy games for psone), but they are here to stay and are an unmitigated success regardless.

          Handhelds dont really “count” when I’m referring to next gen though, considering they are usually on par with the previous gen or the one’s before in terms of power…

          I’d love to see Atlus jump in early though, I just dont see it happening, when their big team is on Persona 5 which aint releasing until at the very least a year after the current gen consoles have been on the market. It’d take them at least another 2-3 years to come out with a big game on the PS4/Xbone after that…

      • Budgiecat

        FF XV and KH III have all the potential in the world to succeed and most likely they will, I really dont see either of those two games ‘failing’, but with the way S-E has been cannibalizing itself as of late, it might be too little too late by then…

        • Anime10121

          I never said I thought they would fail though, I just dont think they have the potential to bring in first week sales matching previous entries in the series anymore. I mean sure, in the long run, they’ll eventually hit 6-7 mil for FFXV and probably 4-5mil for KH3, but a games success is usually determined in the first month or so on the market, when the game sells for full price, and I dont know if the series will have the same amount of frontloaded sales they used to have, what with prices dropping so fast and people being more “weary” of Final Fantasy games nowadays :(

          I do hope though that both are a substantial success though, as both have been my most wanted games since before I graduated highschool (and I’m about to be 26 at the end of the month) :D

          • Budgiecat

            No actually I think they will. It all depends on when they release them which I think by the time they do, the user base will be large enough to bring in that amount

            • Anime10121

              I hope so…

    • 9li8

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

      I don’t really expect anything to change this gen, honestly. Unless we see some kind of miracle from a new IP handled by an unknown developer, you can expect to see the same companies dominating the market.

    • karmacoma

      Bethesda was already a big deal this gen. Oblivion, Fallout 3 & New Vegas, Skyrim, plus they published Dishonored.

      CDPR could be huge with TW3 being multiplatform and Cyberpunk 2077 on the way as well.

      Maybe Tango now that their first game is almost out.

      http://www.pcgamesn.com/sites/default/files/the%20evil%20within.png

      • Six

        I believe that huge won’t be enough to describe CDPR. They have such a massive advantage over every AAA developer.

        The Witcher 3’s budget is only $15 million. 15 million bucks for a game that looks that good, and manages to be 50% bigger than Skyrim.

        As for Tango, I think they’ll be like ZeniMax’s other studios that aren’t called Bethesda. They’ll churn out a sold sales success every few years, and I’ll own a t-shirt with their logo on it.

Well here is my story this month, I work in a pharmacy usually there are 3 techs and 1 pharmacist working per shift, 4 techs decides to quit with no early notice at all. I usually work part time around 15-20 hrs per week b/c I go to school also. But now I “have” to work 33 hr now as a tech and no one seem to care that I go to school or not. And per shift there are only 1 tech and 1 pharmacist. The working environment is still the same pace with only me working and customers complaints. It’s been about a month now.

        the game Shadowrun Returns looks cool ^^

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

          I had a lot of fun with that one, yeah. You can probably only get a good 10 hours or so of playability out of it on your first run, but the freedom of choices and such for story elements, random conversations, that sort of thing, is pretty cool.

          Plus, there’s a lot of UGC (User Generated Content) you can download from the Steam Workshop. Basically, they include an editor with the game so you can create your own campaigns. They have some pretty cool stuff, but I haven’t checked out all of it.

          I know someone was using the resources from Shadowrun Returns to remake the SNES Shadowrun, as well the Sega Genesis Shadowrun, but there is also completely original content with new stories made as well. Shadowrun Returns: Dragonfall basically builds upon what people already loved about Shadowrun Returns and just makes it better.

    Shame there’s no air to air battles, Titans are too tall to fight on air.

    I was hoping a more Armored Core style where you play First Person on ground, but on mech it’s on 3rd person with tons air-ground battles.

    Though i’m still more hype for Destiny. Can’t wait for that game ^^

      • 9li8

        Yeah. Too many shooter games in the industry right now. Wish devs would take a break from them just for a while.

        • Six

          There are plenty of other games to play if you don’t like FPS titles.

          • 9li8

            I know that, but it feels like the amount of those other games have been shrinking due to the shooters trend.

            • Six

              I disagree. If anything, I think that the number is shrinking. Of course companies like Sony, Microsoft, EA, and Activision will always have shooters on the market, but that is to be expected.

              I’d argue that it’s that the big publishers on a whole, especially Japanese ones, are releasing fewer and fewer games every year.

              • Budgiecat

                      Yeah… I don’t buy it. This guy also claims that most publishers don’t have anything ready for 2015.

                      I’d sooner chalk it up to him pulling a “woe is me, no one wants to fund my super awesome game because they are all so busy with iPhones” in an attempt to gain further support.

                      He has a funder. He just needed to convince him that there was a desire for the game out there for consoles as opposed to iOS, hence the kickstarter.

                    The context of conversation is console gaming I believe.

                    Though unfortunately you’re not entirely wrong.

    Well, that’s it. My PS3 died. Sort of. It turns on but then immediately turns off, seems like an overheating issue. It was a refurbished Slim from Gamestop that I only bought in October of last year. It didn’t last very long. Looks like I’ll either have to get a new one or pony up the cash to send it in to Sony for repairs, if they’ll even accept it since it’s a refurb. While I’m at it I might as well send in my PSP as well. I don’t have the money for this shit.

    Fucking Sony, this sort of shit only happens with their consoles. Never had any problems with anything else except a Sony piece of shit, not just consoles, but every piece of electronics I’ve bought made under the company name. Strangely enough, my big fat PS2 still works. What happened, Sony?

      Yeah right….Red Ring of Death was just an Uwe Boll movie?

      “this sort of shit only happens with their consoles.”

      Am I reading this correctly?
