    Hey Sal, anything interesting in this interview with Masaya Matsuura and a few other Parappa the Rapper staff? http://www.4gamer.net/games/999/G999905/20140726006/ There were rumours about a new game last year, so it would be the time to drop hints about it.

    It’s time for me to sleep but I’m posting this here,
    The latest footage we got from the Love Live! SukuPara game looks better than the previous one (though it’s still graphically disappointing). But actually, so long as there’s challenge on harder difficulty modes, it could be more than decent as a rhythm game.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2EhHVHs5vU

    On a side note, I also just watched the Endless Parade live held in february (which blu-ray just came out) and it was awesome. Any other Love Live fans out there?

    • Kiyoyuri

      Sweet! Thanks for posting this, been waiting to see some more gameplay on this! (I’m a Love Live fan!)

      • Kayseur

        Glad someone else’s enjoying this! I hope we get to see even more of it before it goes out.
        Also the exclusive music “Shangri-La Shower” that’s featured in this game will get its CD release on the 1st October apparently. http://blog.esuteru.com/archives/7787186.html

        • Kiyoyuri

          Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  • shogunknight

    Tetsuya Nomuras iteration of the dark knight……he looks like an aeon/esper/summon, the Batamut XD

    • KingNigma

      It really does.

    • Six

      Supposedly he’ll be doing Catwoman next.

      http://www.tomopop.com/ul/35148-/IMG_9800-620x.jpg

      • shogunknight

        That would be cool, i wonder how both batman and catwoman will look like if drawn by George Kamitani

      • Budgiecat

        I’d rather Amano do these. Pre FF style (meaning, his more comic book style back from his tatsunoko days)

  • new_tradition

    How big is the PS3 download for the Destiny Beta? I think a lot of people are checking it out to explain all the quietness around here lately, so I’m a little curious about it…

    • shogunknight

      5.6gb if i recall correctly

    Original Japanese Version of “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” Heads to North America

    http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2014/07/26-1/original-japanese-version-of-mighty-morphin-power-rangers-heads-to-north-america

    • Budgiecat

      thats how it shoulda been from the start…

      (well originally we got Dynaman, but in parody form)

      • Elvick

        I loved the original Power Rangers.

        • Budgiecat

          yeah Zyuranger was cool

  • bloodiOS

    In my opinion, with Wolfenstein: The New Order currently on sales for $39.99 (in U.S.), I think it’s a good opportunity for any fan of the first-person shooter genre who has yet to buy the game to jump in.

    • Six

      One of the best FPS games I’ve ever played. Easily on par with Half-Life 2.

      • McPoo

        I’m getting rid of my copy today, I think I’m about half way in. I just don’t like it that much, which is a shame as I really wanted to. I love the setting, and even the characters and story are really interesting too. The actual gameplay though just leaves me wanting more – the stealth gameplay, which I prefer, doesn’t feel robust enough, and the guns blazing approach just feels a bit empty and leaves me wanting more variety >_<

        Might get some xbox credit and try Valiant Hearts instead

    • shogunknight

      Do you have an idea how many hours it takes to complete the game (assumptions maybe)? i know the game is Single Player only (a good thing for once) and the size of the game is huge

      • bloodiOS

        You may want to ask @disqus_P0ZA8rQKj9:disqus about that. I personally haven’t played my copy yet since I have yet to buy a PS4 ;P

      • Six

        It’s about 10-12 hours if you don’t make a point of finding all the collectibles.

        It also has two separate timelines that are based off a choice you make near the start, the changes being different characters and dialogue.

        • shogunknight

          That, is actually very impressive. Ill definitely get this

  • shogunknight

    Gal gadot as wonder woman in the upcoming Batman vs Superman (why couldnt they just term it Prelude to the Justice League instead of BvsS)

    what do you think?

    • Six

      I’m still pretty iffy on casting her, but I love the costume.

      • shogunknight

        She looks ok, but i think she should have more hair (not longer, maybe a bigger wig). Maybe its the view though but from her forehead the hair looks flat

        Edit: Eh, scratch that. Took a closer look at her art and comics, hair is ok. Wheres her shield and lasso?

        • Six

          She has her lasso on her right side.

    • new_tradition

      This shot makes her look really good, but I still only really know her for her scenes in Fast and Furious movies, and not be dismissive of her acting skills, but that role wasn’t really impressive :/

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      Really wish DC wasn’t so scared of colors. I understand that they can’t do the classic Wonder Woman costume, but they should at least try to preserve the feeling/color of it.
      Her hair is really bothering me, seems flat. Sword is bizarrely small, looks like an oversized letter opener. That leather strap across the chest and waste is pretty pointless, too. I hope it’s not just for her letter opener sword. It looks like it would be a better fit on a show like Arrow, and not in a movie with what will likely be a titanic-sized budget.
      Ugh idk I just hope Gal Gadot blows everyone’s expectations out of the water, and is an awesome Wonder Woman. This will be the first time a major female superhero gets on the big screen (I don’t count Black Widow/Scarlet Witch, they’re grown up sidekicks), and it’s important Gadot/Warner Bros doesn’t royally fuck it up.
      I’m also still REALLY bitter that Jamie Alexander isn’t playing WW. Or Tatiana Maslany. She could have pulled it off pretty well too.

      EDIT: I am glad she still has her lasso, though!! I was worried they would cut that out (not gritty/realistic enough for DC’s colorless universe).

      • Elvick

        Glad I’m not the only one who noticed the hair. xD

        Wonder Woman is awesome, I loved her last animated film. Wish we’d get a new one. ):

        Hope this lady does well too, because I don’t want them to use a terrible performance/reception of Wonder Woman (based on this) to justify (heh~) not supporting her character. They seem to do anything to not support her as a solo character.

        • Budgiecat

          my mom said when I was 4 I used to call her “Womma Woman”…

    • Budgiecat
    • Elvick

      Needs more body in her hair.

      • shogunknight

        Aha, so im not the only one. I think the hair needs to be a bit pluffy

      • Budgiecat

        needs more muscle tone and moar colors

    Shiny Days… all those MILFs~~

    • Ghost Doge

      The amount of times I refreshed the page in hopes of having that gif continue…

      • bloodiOS

        Fell right into my trap ;D

        • Ghost Doge

          You’re so cruel T~T

          • shogunknight

            Lol, i thought may page crashed. The gif makes it look like it crashed

        • Ghost Doge

          P.S. Don’t be a dick. Hook a pal up with a link to the source!

          • bloodiOS

            http://sukebei.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=132612

            You know what to do ;)

            • Ghost Doge

              Yeah, clear up some hard drive space! Didn’t realize how full it got recently D:

    • Pyrofrost

      ohhhhhh, blood, i have a favor to ask.

      • bloodiOS

        Not sure if I can fulfill it but ask away ;)

        • Pyrofrost

          On that gif, could you make it where the text “WORKING AS INTENDED” pops in at the point where it glitches?

          • bloodiOS

            *LOL* I’ll try to do that as soon as I get home. Texting on my phone right now.

          • bloodiOS

            Not sure if it’s the way you want it but… here ya go:
            [EDITED]

            • Pyrofrost

              That’s perfect, but could you get the text to pop in just a little sooner, like about 1 second after the glitch starts, rather than 5~6 seconds after.

              This will be amazing FFXIV official forum material.

              • bloodiOS

                Alright, try this then:

                • Pyrofrost

                  Perfection!

    • Ping92

      Please fix the gif, it’s broken

      • LordKaiser

        lol

  • Samsara09

    it’s rather curious…time is truly a curious thing.I waited 8 years for final fantasy XV,along many others.i can’t even believe it…

    • shogunknight

      Same thing can be said about the last guardian, prey 2, shenmue 3, earthbound 2, kingdom hearts 3, skies of arcadia 2, demon souls 2, crash bandicoot and a lot of others. Truth is, time flies, way faster than before

      • Samsara09

        skies of arcadia 2?Lol.

        • shogunknight

          Some people still want it :(

          • Samsara09

            and some people will die waiting.Well,I am waiting for TWEWY2,so I am not exactly one to talk.

            At the very least it has been teased,but…eh,it’s SE,so it’s a little shaky….

      • Elvick

        TLG has only been 5 years.

        And some of those aren’t actual games in development Just “I hope this happens”.

        • shogunknight

          It feels like 8 years :(

          • Elvick

            Feels like 300. ;p

            • shogunknight

              ….i feel your pain

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

      I can’t believe you’ve done it either :p

      • Samsara09

        I forgot the game for some 7 years,lol.But,hell,just remembering that I watched 2006’s E3 at the time,when this game was annouced…time sure flies.

    • Budgiecat

      solar systems and stars in other galaxies have destroyed and collapsed in that time…

    • Wolf Star

      http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=p6BEdKTGhNg
      add 4 more years since we won’t see it at this years TGS xD (just guessing because the game is silent again since 2006,2011,2013)

    If sniping dudes from a distance is my preferred way of taking enemies down, should I choose Hunter class or am I ok with my Warlock character (Destiny)?

    • shogunknight

      Scout/Hunter class is good for you then. Though my personal fav is the Warlock class, i think they can all wield snipers so it actually doesnt matter what class you pick for the beta at least. You may have to check on their upcoming subclasses in the full game to know if they will have something unique to their classes like sniping abilities exclusive to only the scouts

    • Elvick

      You can try/have all three.

      So just try ‘em out. I know some equipment enhances certain weapon types (I have some on my Warlock that help with Pulse Rifles, which I hate) not sure about character abilities or not.

  • Elvick

    Fucking finally! D:<

    /no life

    • Ghost Doge

      I’m just happy the forum went up so I could finally post that gif :D

  • PrinceHeir

    Yes new open forum!!

    Been waiting for this!!!

  • PrinceHeir

    Okay!

  • PrinceHeir

    Plot!!

    • AnimusVox

      What’s the 4th image from?

      • PrinceHeir

        From Left to right or top to bottom vice versa?

        If it’s the glasses blonde girl, she’s from Freezing Anime voiced by Mamiko Noto :)

        • AnimusVox

          Yes and thank you

          • PrinceHeir

            Cool!

            Also if i may ask who’s the girls on left of Satellizer(Freezing) and Nami(One Piece)?? ^^

            • Ghost Doge

              The one on Nami’s left looks like Lucy from Fairy Tail. Not sure about the other one though.

    Apple is frustrated people don’t want to pay for apps, according to The Banner Saga devs.

    http://www.polygon.com/2014/7/24/5931351/why-banner-saga-is-avoiding-the-budget-price-pitfall-of-the-app-store

    “Apple is frustrated, along with everybody else, about the mentality that’s gone rampant in mobile app markets, where people don’t want to pay anything,” Watson said. “They want to pay as little as possible. They think that four dollars is an exorbitant amount to pay for a game, which is very illogical considering most people’s lifestyles. They’ll spend $600 on an iPad, and $4 on a coffee, drop $20 on lunch, but when it comes to spending four or five dollars on a game, it’s this life-altering decision. I’m frustrated with that too.”

    That glorious mobile future.

    • Samsara09

      basically she is frustrated people dislike such cheap and unethical practices.

    • Elvick

      So we’re left with freemium games that are fishing for the few whales out there who spend thousands on seeds or energy or whatever bullshit that takes the fun out of games.

      Mobile future is one I don’t want a part of.

      • Budgiecat

        Its not just whales. Average Candy Crush users in U.S. spends like $15 a month and average P&D user in Japan spends like $60 a month. Its crazy. Freemium mobile is like the new casino; only you dont win shit

        • Elvick

          Those aren’t the rule though. Those are exceptions.

          • Budgiecat

            yeah but. People are spending $ on these freemiums (others). Else companies would have given up on em a while ago lol

    • new_tradition

      I think people are hesitant to buy apps and games for their phones and related devices because their digital items and there’s this sense that once you buy it, you’re stuck with the purchase. I know on Android you can ask for a refund within 15 minutes or something, so I dunno if Apple has something similar…

      But yeah, I think it’s a tangible/intangible complex here. I mean, I have bought some games and apps, but I always waited for a sale or something, done a little research before committing, etc…

      And yeah, smartphones are frickin’ expensive (obligatory lolApple tax remark here). Asking to buy more software on top of that can be a little too hard for people xD

  • DesmaX

    Just finished Metro: Last Light this weekend. I’d say it’s my favorite FPS from last gen.

    Oh well, picked up Ace Combat: AH on the steam sale, replaying it should be a nice diversion until Trails in the Sky arrives there

    • http://nichegamer.net/ bf313

      Just finished Last Light a few hours ago myself! I totally agree with you too, it’s definitely up there for one of my favorite games of the last gen.

    • Budgiecat

      I couldlnt even get past the first helicopter stage in that game.

      I kinda hate helicopter stages in games.

      Quit in also:

      Stranglehold
      Metal of Honor

      and a few more

      lol

  • PrinceHeir

    Is Guilty Crown pretty good? :D

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

      Yeah it is but it’s kinda sad from what I heard

    • futuristic_imagination

      I think its pretty good. At least its an original anime and not an adaptation.
      Story: it’s ok, 1st half is great. 2nd half it was sort of a mess.
      Art: Amazing, Its what Redjuice ‘s art would look like in motion.
      Music: dat Hiroyuki Sawano also Supercell and Egoist too!

      • PrinceHeir

        Redjuice Art is awesome!!

        Supercell and Egoist as well! Love Psycho Pass!

    • 罪罰

      No, not really. It’s pretty to look at though.

    Madoka X Sailor Moon :D

    • Budgiecat

      Usagi is crushing her hand and all her fingers are broken hence the look of pain on her face…

      • bloodiOS

        I’m thinking that it has more to do with what Usagi is doing with her left hand, hidden in the back…

        • Budgiecat

          I chose not to talk about that

          there’s kids here..

          • PrinceHeir

            Hey Hey!

        • Elvick

          Up the butt. ;D

          Madoka does look a little uncomfortable in the face.

    • Elvick

      I’ve been meaning to watch that anime… (not Sailor Moon, the other one, can’t think of the full title xP)

      • Zackasaur

        Holy shit, you haven’t seen Madoka? How are we even friends?! But, seriously, go watch it while it’s on Netflix. :D If it’s not on Canadian Netflix, I’ll give you my US login info on Facebook so that you can watch it.

      Big fanservice right here.

    • Shippoyasha

      If you’re already a fan of the games, then sure. It’s more a fan show for the fans of the games already.

    • Elvick

      Preorder if you like plot. Massive plot.

      • Budgiecat

        how bout exposed nipples and vagina?

        • Elvick

          Never seen that anime, so idk.

          Though Queen’s Blade has you covered there. :P

          Wait, do they show vag… I don’t remember. o;

          • Budgiecat

            Exposed nipples were in a lot of 70’s Anime.

            then in the 80’s suddenly everyone had missing nipples lol

            and probably closest to vag would probably be just vague faraway hairless shot

      • Akari Akaza

        Whats wrong on being a girl? not all guys are gamers and otakus. Also remember the internet is a place to make up your gender, culture and race what ever. I don’t care if everyone thinks I’m a girl or a guy or that this picture I got its from a picture from the world wide web.

        • PrinceHeir

          Woah Woah Woah.

          All i’m asking if your a girl or not. I’m not trying to downplay or anything. I guess i should have remove the emote.

          And it’s actually fine if you don’t want to answer the question.

          I think it’s awesome be it girl, guy, gay, lesbian etc to be a gamer.

          There’s no restriction to any gender labels. Everyone is free to pursue this.

        Because Mass Effect is very unoriginal, and tons of modern sci-fi properties are just ripping off the same things?

        • Budgiecat

          point taken

          But that just puts Destiny in an even worse light lol

          • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

            lol. :)

      • Elvick

        Meh, it reminds me of Halo.

        • Budgiecat

          All those weird ailen types at tower that look like turians and the funny closed masks and hoodies dont remind you of Quarians??

          As well as “the Fallen”, which sounds so much like a ME villain race…

          • Elvick

            To be fair, I’ve only played like… 3 hours of Mass Effect. :p

            Also… The Flood… The Covenant… come on.

            • Budgiecat

              just visit the Wiki you’ll see..

              • Elvick

                Not sure if you saw mah edit or not, but come on dood.

      • PrinceHeir

        Yeah Destiny does reminds me of Mass Effect at times.

        Citadel like hub, blue lens flare artstyle, even armors and guns and powers are similar.

        I guess i’ll stick to Mass Effect for Sci Fi western style RPG’s :P

  • bloodiOS

    Got invited to a family gathering… just to listen sibling arguing?! Fuck this shit, people! You’re my mom and aunt, you’re older and wiser, why the fuck are you acting so stupid about this shit? Ugh, a fun night fucking ruined, just like that…
    -___-

    • Budgiecat

      should just bit your thumb

      then the party really woulda gotten started..

    • Ghost Doge

      It’s all good, man. Stupid shit like that tends to happen between family members. Long as they can laugh about it by the end of the night, all’s well! Unless this is a constant problem. If that’s the case, someone’s gonna have to check the old ladies <.<

      • bloodiOS

        No one has been able to laugh about it afterward for a long time now. I’m just so sick of this shit, just hope they can leave me out of it next time. This is a fucking sneak attack. Meh…

        • Ghost Doge

          Next time they start going at each other, take charge! Tell ‘em to shut the hell up because they’re acting stupid and that if they refuse to let it go, avoid each other so at least they don’t ruin everyone else’s fun! Either that or just leave ‘em outside and carry on with the family :P

          • bloodiOS

            Already said and ended up ignored. And the whole family is into this shit. It’s like a fucking third-rate drama shit with all kinds of casts crammed into one scene that stretches out so much more than it should be… like the latest Transformers film.

            • Ghost Doge

              Ah, I feel ya. My family tends to get involved in the argument and people start taking sides, talking shit, all that. If that happens, best I can suggest is that you just go off and do your own thing if you know the argument won’t end well. Might as well salvage whatever’s left of the day!

            • Elvick

              I see… my family is drama filled too, so I don’t talk to most of them. :P

              I have my own family that I’ve built on my own, it’s free of drama. I had enough of that growing up. I don’t need more stress for no reason. (more in general, I have no stress now :P)

              • shogunknight

                Wow, you guys have it quite rough. My extended families treats each others kids like their own. Heck some are pissed at me because i dont spend time with them or ask them for money and any other stuff. The only downside with mine is that if 1 person does something wrong, he/she is going to be schooled by a lot of relatives. Aside from that they are all good

              • Budgiecat

                thanks man

            • Budgiecat

              thats when you fill up a bucket with ice water when no ones looking and run by them and splash em with it!

              (do I have to think of everything?)

        • Budgiecat

          shoulda invited me and Ghost…but no you only think about yourself…

    • Elvick

      Tell them to grow up and don’t attention any future events with them until they stop acting like children together.

      Not everyone likes to do that though. :P

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Weasel out of it! Always fun to come up with excuses. I have to do just that myself, as I have a get together with old college buddies I have to get out of coming up in 3 weeks or so.

      Time to get my thinking cap on! :D

      • bloodiOS

        I only came for the food, because I was told to come over to eat. I didn’t know eating would soon switch to this crap.

          Aw, sorry to hear that :(

        • Ghost Doge

          Honestly that’s even better. Show up, eat, ignore argument, eat more, take a break, walk around a little to make some more room, eat again, blow up the toilet, then bounce! At least you get something out of the deal.

    Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure — this fantastically fun, colorful action-platformer from Falcom that originally released on PSP years ago — currently has a PC version up on Steam Greenlight. If you Vote it up, and help it get Greenlit, you will receive a copy of the game for free:

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=286828342

    It really is a fantastic little gem of a game, with some great action, and absolutely adorable gfx despite looking like an early PS2 game. It’s Falcom though – Ys, Zwei and nothing else they’ve done has ever pushed tech. Mastiff’s English dub too was super, super cute. Y’all should vote it up! Here’s the trailer (it’s also on the Steam Greenlight link I put up here already, but let’s embed the trailer here in the comments):

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

    It seems to use the old PSP footage though, so it’s not great looking. But it gets the point across, and there are native PC Screens on the Greenlight page.

    Take a look and vote it up! Pick up a great free game too! Win-win, everyone! ( ^ – ^ )

        • Elvick

          Why indeed.

          Figure it out, Nancy Drewcat.

          • Budgiecat

            Its not nice to poke fun at his theatrical abilities…

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    So far i’ve been enjoying the beta to “Destiny” its rather good. This is coming from me a gamer not that crazy about Shooter games.

  • Elvick

    Replaying God of War, so I can refresh my memory on wtf happened and then move on to GoW2, which I’ve never played. Totally forgot about that shit box moving part at the beginning. Bleh. Forgot quite a bit at the very beginning, but stuffs coming back to me now. :3

    Some of the things in this game are so annoying, but when I played it the first time I was so amazed. One thing that bugs me is the stupid, stupid, stupid, dialog boxes. Why? It’s so huge and ugly. Bleh. So glad gaming has better design now. It was fine back then, but now it’s just so ugly and totally unnecessary. Some subtitles would’ve been fine guys. Especially since that’s basically how the dialog boxes acted out of tutorials anyway.

    Playing on Vita. Looks alright, not great. Runs fine, I know the framerate is less than the others, but I don’t really notice. : idk And, so far… I really don’t get people who bitched about the touch stuff. The rear touch is used for contextual stuff like saving and opening chests. So… I don’t get hwy people were crying about it when it came out. You can’t accidentally do anything.

    • Budgiecat

      Cant get through those games. I hate Kratos..

      • shogunknight

        Try to Imagine him as a rabid cat while playing

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        Eh, Kratos isn’t bad for ONE GAME. Exactly one game. That’s how far your one-dimensional, unjustified psycopaths can go before you have to justify it… SCEA and Santa Monica never did. In fact, they got much, much worse with it. Ready at Dawn did a decent job of TRYING to find something decent to make him not deplorable in Chains of Olympus, but I checked out after playing mostly 3 games.

        He is a huge worthless a–hole. When you’re killing other, known heroes like Perseus (from one of my favorite movies too! The Harry Hamlin version from 1982’s Clash of the Titans!?), you KNOW you’re on the wrong side of things here.

        And needless to say, all the games are pretty samey. Dismissing directors with each new game will probably lead to that. No one wants to try something new, because everyone is too pre-occupied with merely doing as good a job as the last guy who directed a GoW game (if you can even call some of these guys’ jobs “good”).

        I’m glad it’s on hiatus at the moment. I would be perfectly happy if it “pulled a Jak” and sat out the generation.

        • Budgiecat

          I guess this is why I was able to stomach Asura’s Wrath more….because he only had one game…

          • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

            And it was crazy awesome

            Kratos’ rage is super meh compared to what Asura did ( ^ – ^ )

        Well, at least we can agree on that :p

        • Budgiecat

          JJBA is awesome
          Gundam Extreme VS series is awesome
          LoGh is awesome

          Gatchaman is awesome

            That’s considered “a lot” ?

            >.>

      • Elvick

        I hate him too, but I like the games.

        I don’t get why people like his character. He has very little personality, and what is there is one dimensional and lame.

        That’s why I’d rather another Heavenly Sword be made than another God of War. I loved Nariko and Kai.

        • Budgiecat

          I’d like a new Alundra and Dark Cloud.

          I lost my copy of Dark Cloud. I looked everywhere… : (

          • Elvick

            I haz it.

            • Budgiecat

              Nooooo

              give it backsies

          • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

            I lost my copy of Alundra 2. Have the case, but it’s empty :(

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          Kai was awesome! Nariko was kind of bland, but it was a very short, first game in a would-be(?) series. At least there was places her character could’ve gone in sequels.

          Shame that the only thing Sony is doing with it is a questionable-looking straight-to-home-video movie.

    • pixxxelz

      The final level of god of war is hell itself! I remember rage quiting that shit so many times (those spinning blades >_<)
      Also GoW 2 is by far the best one in the series imo

      • Elvick

        Oh… at first I didn’t know what the last level was, but then you said spinning blades… and I remember.

        ): I don’t wanna

    • shogunknight

      God of war is a really good game, ascension was ok but its not as good as the first 3 or the psp titles to me. What has always been on my mind was the future of this game, will it be rebooted, new myth, or some sort of continuation? if any, how will it be done? Clearly the best way will be a new myth but this brought me to ask myself, when you think about god of war, do you think it as Kratos or just as a greek story that just happened to have him in it

      • Budgiecat

        obviously they…..

        should just do a new IP..

      • Elvick

        Personally, I’d love to see them ditch Kratos. But I think too much of “God of War” is associated with him. So I don’t think that would happen.

        Maybe like a re-imagined version with new myths used. Hopefully a more interesting Kratos too. :P

        I want Santa Monica to do a new IP though.

        • Budgiecat

          re-imagined?

          You really want a DmC reaction

          better just to let him R.I.P.

          • Elvick

            I guess that would happen if they tried to make him better… fans ain’t nevar happy. Shame.

    • Ping92

      The last stage of challenge of the gods for GOW was a nightmare. Im nvr doing it again

      • Elvick

        Those are those optional things right?

        I tried to do those and was like… ugh. I think I got the first one, and after that it was fucking impossible. I can’t imagine what the last one is like.

        • Ping92

          Yeah they are optional. They make me wanna throw the controller sometimes.

          Dammit David Jaffe!

      super fake. And brought up already on Gematsu today :)

      http://gematsu.com/2014/07/phantasy-star-nova-japanese-release-date-set. Read the comments there. Look for one by LordKaiser.

      Comes from a Korean site who doesn’t know how to use Google Image Search to check the validity of mystery images they receive, apparently. Got confused over a Unreal 3 fan-made demo of the beginning of the game.

      It would be like if it said, “RESIDENT EVIL 2 HD REMAKE CONFIRMED!” and then showed this fan-made demo with no context:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62rptEGgPLc.
      People would run with it, because they WANT TO BELIEVE! lol.

      No FFVII HD remake is coming. And it certainly won’t be announced at NOT a big show like E3 or TGS. Let’s squash this right now ;)

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

      Totally fake.

  • McPoo

    How scary is that Outlast game? I like horror games in theory, but when I play them I become a massive pissy, and can only play for like 10 minutes at a time.

    Do the bad guys roam around in real time? I don’t think I could play that without crapping myself.

    • Elvick

      I didn’t even try it. Waste of a PS+ game for me. :P

      Not a fan of horror games, or movies. I just can’t. I’d rather not. kthx

      • Budgiecat

        Why? You scaaaaaared?

        • Elvick

          Yup~

          • Budgiecat

            ..ManagedCorn will hold you and keep you safe

                It worked..

                • Elvick

                  • Budgiecat

                    No! *slams fists*

                    it backfired…

      • McPoo

        I love horror movies, and will happily watch any by myself. Games though are the complete opposite lol

        • Budgiecat

          geez whats with you wet noodles..

          • McPoo

            Scary m8

            • Budgiecat

              oh nooes the evil baddie is gonna jump out of the tv screen! lol

              • McPoo

                It’s happened before…

                • Budgiecat

                  Yeah

                  In the Ring

                  it was a MOVIEEEEE

                  • McPoo

                    M8 I already said movies aren’t scary, keep up. It’s only video games that bring the terror

                    • Budgiecat

                      Aint no video game character jumped out ya damn screen unless you were on some shrooms and meth that night…

                    • McPoo

                      I got 15 quid in my Xbox account now, debating whether to get this or Valiant Hearts. I’m owed another tenner from a promo thing, so I could always get VH with that…

                      But on the other hand, I’m r8 scared.

    • Ghost Doge

      It’s mostly jump scares for what feels like the first hour. Eventually you get to a few parts where there are standard enemies walking around in a set path and you have to sneak around them to accomplish certain objectives. There’s also this one big dude that likes to chase you around like Nemesis from RE3, but as long as you get far enough away and hide, you’re good. Honestly I don’t even remember that many encounters toward the end of the game. I do remember that the ending was disappointing though. Then again there is the DLC that’s supposed to explain it better but I just don’t have the interest.

      Oh and fair warning, there are visible dicks on a couple of occasions, so if you don’t wanna see that or someone who doesn’t wanna see that is in the room, just…. Keep your camera up :D

      • McPoo

        Haha dicks aren’t an issue really :p cheers for the feedback on the game though.

        I ended up buying it, I’ll get Valiant Hearts next week. The enemies roaming round are what really freak me out – I loved Haunting Ground in concept, and the characters and setting, I just couldn’t play it cos it terrified me so much lol.

        Also jump scares annoy me. They’re cheap and get me every damn time.

        • Ghost Doge

          Yeah, Haunting Ground was pretty creepy. After so many deaths, it just started getting annoying though. Then again, that’s true for just about any game unless you’re dying on purpose. The other thing that bugged me about Haunting Ground was Hewie’s AI. Treated that dog like a king and he still refused to stay put when I needed him to help set up an ambush >.>

          • McPoo

            Haha I didn’t get far enough in for that to be a problem. I don’t think I ever took down the grounds keeper monster actually…

            I’ll give Outlast a go later (with the company of my girlfriend for support), and hopefully my undergarments will remain unsoiled.

          • McPoo

            Played about 20 minutes of Outlast, in the broad daylight, with my girlfriend next to me. Still pretty terrifying stuff… Everything through protagonist does is so loud though! Even his breathing creeps me out, and the sound effects that you play when you pause and unpause.

            I did enjoy what I played, it’s just slow going. I walk at the slowest speed possible, open every door slowly, go through every door looking both ways first lol.

            Girlfriend had to go out so I stopped. Now I’m watching a mediocre horror film called Truth or Die :p

            • Ghost Doge

              Yeah, the beginning does a pretty nice job at setting the mood. Gets a little goofy later on, but that’s probably just me. Had a friend lose his shit but he really doesn’t handle any kind of horror all that well to begin with. Did you scare the lady away or did she have something else to do? :P

              • McPoo

                She went to play Rock Band at a mates house :p they’ve just bagged a full band kit and 4 games off eBay for a quid, so once they’ve got that then I’ll go over with her and play. At the moment both us boyfriends just do our own thing while they play lol.

                Id welcome a bit of goofiness :p anything that stops me sweating profusely while playing is a good thing. I was considering streaming some but I go so slow I don’t think it’d be interesting viewing lol

                • Ghost Doge

                  If anything, your reactions are probably gonna be the main attractions :D And all that for a quid sounds like a pretty sweet deal. You should go over and kill the bass whenever it arrives!

                  • McPoo

                    I think I will! I’m poo at drums, hate singing, so that leaves guitar. £1 and the petrol it costs to drive about an hour away and collect is a damn good deal really.

                    You been playing much recently?

                    • Ghost Doge

                      Bit late on the reply here but better late than never, I suppose. Haven’t really been playing all that much. A little bit of time on the 3DS with a One Piece game, a little bit of Muramasa and Dragon’s Crown on the Vita, a little bit of Thief on the PS4, but that’s about it. Mostly been watching the lady play games on my PS3 while I provided support and advice :P

        cubed3.com

        Posts reviews from all platforms but focuses on just Nintendo news reports at this time. We’re gonna split the site up into new dedicated sites for each platform as soon as we can, however. Increased requests from publishers to review games means we’re on the lookout for some new potentially interested people, as well as people who can spare a few mins a day to post news to help out.

      Aren’t you supposed to jog on these?

      • Budgiecat

        you can start off slow or that could be the cool down…

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

          Honestly, looks like she’s just doing this for attention. Probably one of those “gym bunnies” I hear so much about. She’s not even sweating, so it’s obviously not a cool down. Plus, with that thing on her hip, I doubt she’ll jog anyway since it might pop off.

          • Budgiecat

            yeah but dat ass tho..

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

              yeah but don’t care tho..

              I’d go to the gym to work out, not ogle women. Priorities, man.

              • Budgiecat

                I can multitask :P

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

                  I wouldn’t call that multitasking, lol. That’s no different than saying, “Yeah, I go to the mall to shop, but that doesn’t mean I can’t check out chicks too.” Come on :p

            She’s probably recording that herself to post online.

    Hey, any 16-bit fans out there? I know Shovel Knight just blew retro-fans away, but that’s 8-bit inspired, so why not follow it up with this love letter to the best action games of the 16-bit era. Specifically, the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive?

    Freedom Planet released this week, and it’s like a fourth classic Sonic the Hedgehog sidescroller, mixed with Gunstar Heroes, and Rocket Knight.. and a bit of Pulseman and Ristar. It’s pretty frickin’ awesome, you guys ;)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMEmcVRNZvI. Just wish it was on a console. Even with a 360 wired controller, it just… needs to be on a console (or 3), y’know?

    • PrinceHeir

      Need Vita please!!

      Is this the same engine as Sonc games from Mega Drive games?

      Dat voice acting though.

    • Elvick

      There ya go Sega, outsource Sonic 2D games to these guys for PSN/XBLA/etc.

      But that makes sense, so you won’t.

    • Elvick

      Overly huge areas are pointless. I don’t care about that news personally. Look at how fucking needlessly huge some of the Halo series environments are. They’re just tedious as fuck. Even with a vehicle.

    • PrinceHeir

      Isn’t that the remake Fate Stay Night anime this fall??

  • PrinceHeir

    So what ADV/VN/ERO games have you guys played?

    English/Japanese it doesn’t matter.

    Been playing Discipline Record of a Crusade and it’s pretty awesome!! Loving the art despite being made 10 years ago. Sei Shoujo’s art is pretty awesome X___X

    It’s hard to play this in one hand, but i can manage it XD

    I also got Kara no Shoujo installed here(even though i have the disc limired edition version from Manga gamer) and this series is dark as hell.

    I also heard JAST USA didn’t include Steins;Gate Cosplay add on in their game.

    I have their LE and digital edition as well as i manage to back up the fan translated one that was released last 2012 that includes the Cosplay add-on and translated achievements.

    If anyone wants either of these games just message me and i’ll upload it here ^^

    • Budgiecat

      Megazone 23 Blue Garland
      Bible Black
      Steins;Gate

      Umineko

      • PrinceHeir

        Cool!

        I played Chaos;Head and it’s one freaking long game.

        Don’t know how i manage to finish this, still didn’t understand the story till the end.

        I may have to play it again next year.

        Funny i was just checking out Bible Black since i have the Hentai as well as checking some old works from Sei Shoujo.

        Is Umineko good though?

        • Budgiecat

          yeah but didnt play much of it

          • PrinceHeir

            Aww why not?

            I remember you mentioned this Megazone 23 which was one of the first PS3 games.

            Is there something special about this game?

            • Budgiecat

              its a sequel to an 80’s OVA

    • new_tradition

      Just two BL ones that got fantranslated: Togainu no Chi and Dramatical Murder (plus the fan disk). I guess for that reason I can’t help but be biased towards the Nitro+ titles. TnC sold out before I could get at it, but having played Dmmd for PC is why I’m buying the Vita version >3>

      There’s a few others I’m curious about, but it’s hard for me to make the effort to play something I won’t completely understand. A lot of translation groups seem to run into problem when trying to hack the game to insert English subs :/

      Oh yeah, that reminds, are there any female VAs you heard in ero that do mainstream work and such? I recognize some male VAs from time to time and I know they use aliases sometimes, but it’s pretty obvious who they are, so I wonder about the women…

      Is there some database about VAs and their alias and the works they’ve done under those names?

    At least their not just concentrating on Street Fighter only nowadays :P

    • z_merquise

      Well, Udon did published a lot of non-Street Fighter related stuff for a long time.

      And Udon did start as a small team of writers and artists creating their own Street Fighter comics (with Capcom’s approval) and that was way back in the early 2000’s, a time where the Street Fighter IP was “dead” or more like unusable for Capcom.

    • new_tradition

    “Aikatsu!” TV Anime 3rd Season to Feature New Main Characters

    Bandai today reveals the details of the upcoming third season of the Aikatsu! TV anime series. In place of Ichigo Hoshimiya who was the protagonist in the first two seasons (she will still be in the story as a supporting character), the new season will feature her underclass girl Akari Ozora voiced by Shino Shimoji with her classmates. Akari first appeared in the 76th episode as a first year student in junior high. She is a big fan of Ichigo, and that’s why she entered Starlight Academy where girls train to become idols. Now she has her own story.

        Yeah, sort of. Original Visual Novel had 3 routes (Fate, Unlimited Blade Works and Heaven’s Feel).

        Fate/Stay Night anime – it used Fate material + some things from other routes (like Rin vs Shirou in school)

        Now ufotable are making other routes

      Nice! My Wii U is a nice secondary platform next to my PS4. Good for some local multiplayer shenanigans with friends. c: I’m sure you’ll agree!

      PS3, Vita, and 3DS all rock my world, too… Too many great games across the three.

      • Kuro-Law

        Thats pretty much the same for me. Incase anyone comes around we can have a go at smash or MK8. Though the exclusives like X and zelda U aswell were also part of the reason. Ill hopefully get my ps4 when Bloodborne drops, maybe sooner :D

          I guess seeing someone, like Ruby would be interesting, seeing as she’s kind of an assassin. Speaking of which, since Suda’s PS4 game is all about people killing each other, maybe there could be some NMH cameos? =D

          All the drama regarding Lily Bergamo aside, the game looks fairly interesting IMO. Definitely something I want to try out, when I get a PS4. I really want to see more at TGS, just to see how the gameplay is. He’s got me quite intrigued with Let it Die.

        Is the remaster version I’m thinking of trying it. I need to start playing with my PS4. Right now PS4 don’t have my kind of games, but finally there is a game coming in September 18, but I still want to try this one.

              Whachu talkin bout Willis?

        • Anime10121

          I’m still kinda iffy on Omega Quintet… I’ll need to see more to see if its something I could be interested in… Compile Heart is really a…. lets say topsy turvy studio when it comes to good games. Some are fantastic to me (Neptunia/Fairy Fencer F), some arent (Cross Wars/Agarest).

          By the time its localized, I’ll likely have seen enough to know whether I’ll want it or not…right now, I’m leaning towards a no, because I’m not really a fan of idol games or the character designs, but depending upon how fun the game actually is, that may change :)

          But yeah… I can definitely understand the lack of PS4 games at the moment, as I only have MGSVGZ right now, but yeah TLoU is pretty good! I’m glad I waited until I could get it for $30 instead of 60, as I doubt I’ll ever revisit it… but it was fun to play through.

          Now Tomb Raider on the other hand, I may repurchase it once it gets to $20, as I LOVED that game!

    • MrFinalgamer

      Yes you should! The game is amazing, granted, maybe a bit over hyped, but it’s REALLY good. Just…keep in mind, this IS the apocalypse, and it’s quite gruesome at points (but, oh so satisfying!)

    • bloodiOS

      Perhaps the video game wasn’t actually delayed but simply held back to be released around the same time frame when the film hits the theaters? (Can’t deny that the game will benefit from additional development time though.)

        Mel Gibson character model option please…

          • 罪罰

                    Well, I was just pointing out that Hollywood hasn’t exactly been kind to remakes/reboots/etc. of old franchises, that’s all. It’s very rare to actually see them come out with something great these days, sadly.

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

              Right, because we all know that post-apocalyptic timelines should always get a sequel. You know… So things can become worse than apocalyptic. Oh wait…

              Anyway, they can call it a “sequel” or whatever, but it honestly just looks like another reboot of them trying to recreate the original in a different view and I don’t support it at all. No Mel? No sale.

    Finally pulled myself away from FFXIV long enough to clear my first quest, get a 100% clear on the first floor of the first dungeon, and start my next quest in Operation Abyss. It seems EXP is still stuck in 2007 or so though, lol. They’re still using their old PC scheme for menus and such, but that also might have to do with me picking ‘Classic’ mode in the beginning.

    I just avoided the other option since it was called ‘Basic’, lol. Maybe my option changed the menus to an older style of EXP games though. I’ll have to see if Basic does anything differently in that regard.

    Only one dungeon to choose from in the beginning, naturally.

    First quest clear!

    Alice has quite the attitude on her. I can tell already just from how she behaves and talks around us, lol. Still… A quest is a quest, I suppose!

    EDIT: Had to replace some of the screenshot links and host them elsewhere since Minus was acting kind of funky with a handful of them for some reason.

  • Budgiecat

    wtf is going on? I loaded Deus Ex HR in my PS3 and when I hit start it keeps skipping and the disc looks fine I barely ever played this game before…

    • bloodiOS

      Check to see if some of your furs made their way into the PS3.

      • Budgiecat

        okie I’ll check..

    • Anime10121

      PS3 may be showing its age… As I’ve NEVER had a blu ray skip on me EVER…

      • Budgiecat

        aahhh dont say dat…my phat PS3 and launch 360 are indestructable beasts….

        ohh nooo now the disc icon is just spinning,,

        • Anime10121
          • Budgiecat

            wtf I just loaded Rogue Warrior and it plays just fine!

            • Anime10121

              Your PS3 may just not like Deus EX… I didnt :/

        • futuristic_imagination

          Seems like the disc drive for your ps3 died. Same thing happened with my phat ps3. Used it for digital games until the YLOD killed it. Bought a slim ps3 (way before the super slim was introduced) no problem ever since.

          • Budgiecat

            but its only happening with this game. Rogue Warrior and Anarchy Reigns are playing just fine…

            • futuristic_imagination

              oh, hmm… that’s weird. Is the disc dirty/damaged?

              • Budgiecat

                doesnt seem to be and I cleaned it

                • futuristic_imagination

                  hmmm… Is this the first time running the game? If yes it might be a rare case where its a defective disc. If not, then I’m out of solutions. :(

                  • Budgiecat

                    2nd time

    • PrinceHeir

      I never asked for this!

      Thanks for reminding me that i need to finish this where i left off.

      This is my 3rd playthrough. Game is definitely one of my favorites last gen!

  • Anime10121

    I havent been online much these last couple days…. Anyone know if there has been any capture of the Avengers 2 teaser they showed at Comic Con?

    • new_tradition

      I’ve been looking for the last hour, still haven’t seen anything yet. How the hell did Superman vs Batman get leaked but not Avengers 2? X_x

      There’s descriptions posted all over the place, though. I guess that’s something…But I want imagery ;_;

      • Anime10121

        Ikr! I just checked IGN and saw the description… I honestly coudn’t care less about Supes vs Bats, as I’m not really big on DC, but I NEEDS MAH AVENGAZ!

        • Six

          Mahvel plebs stay losing.

          • Anime10121

            My super heroes can kick your super heroes ass :V

            • Six

              Probably. Outside of Batman and a few others I think DC is pretty bleh.

              But Batman tho.

              • Anime10121

                Meh…rich kid with a lack of mommy and daddy issues (ghet it, cuz he never lost his) XD

                • Six

                  Find me some Marvel stories as good as The Dark Knight Returns, The Killing Joke, Batman Year One and Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth.

                  Oh oh oh that’s right you can’t oooooooooh. Be thankful I just didn’t drop the Watchmen bomb and end this discussion before it even started. ー( ̄~ ̄)ξ

                  • 罪罰

                    Not to mention DC also owns Vertigo Comics. Marvel is such shit at writing comics these days and handling their own heroes.

                  • Anime10121

                    More wah wah I cant kill that clinically insane joker cuz I hate the guns that shot my parents! I’ll never kill a bad guy even though the world would be better off without these batshit mad psychopaths! I let that one moment in my life cloud better more sound judgement!

                    But hey, at least mah billion trillion gazillion dollars help me sleep at night! And also the pacifier that comes out of my fukn batbelt :V

                    Sony should have just included a batbelt in its advertising for PS3! It only does everything my ass! BAT BELT BIATCH!

                    (though that Red Hood animated movie was fucking awesome)

                    • Six

                      How are those Marvel games? I heard they are making a fighting game for iOS. I’m sure that’ll be fun.

                      I’ll just be over here with the Arkham games.

                    • Anime10121

                      Raises finger….and walks away quietly and defeated XD

                    • 罪罰

                    • Anime10121

                      Just in case anyone takes my post TOO seriously, I’m half joking, I dont hate Batman nor DC (though I am indifferent to a lot of them), I just like Marvel characters/stories/worlds a LOT more!

                    • 罪罰

                      I was about to slap your shit to oblivion.

                    • Anime10121

                      lol XD

          • new_tradition

            *obnoxious fanboy comment* :P

            Seriously, I think I used to watch X-Men and Batman side-by-side as a kid to start off before watching the
            other cartoons, so I never really go into the whole rivalry thing >3>

            • Six

              I’m actually a big fan of the Marvel movies. I’ve just been a Batman fan for as long as I can remember.

          • Budgiecat

            lol DC needs all the promo it can get

  • Samsara09

    A question.While I was playing guns of the patriots,some of the audio was missing in the briefing files.all of a sudden,it vanishes,then a phrase or two later,it returns.
    I asked this before,but eh…don’t remember being answered.

    • Ghost Doge

      Did you run around with the little robot? Not sure how to turn that off, but I’ve noticed that whenever I explore the Nomad to pick up goodies, the audio is always affected based on where I leave the Mk.2

      • Samsara09

        yes,I noticed that.But in the last briefing file,I wasn’t using it,and well,shit happened

  • Kayseur

    My “Vita” just went crazy. I left the battery dies completely last night, then it just gave me a warning while I was playing Freedom Wars telling me it couldn’t save. A moment after, the game crashed and told me the memory card had been taken out. I rebooted it but it did it again, and once it had finally settled I couldn’t launch any apps and the database was corrupted when I went into the gallery mode.

    So I went into recovery mode and had a database repair. No luck, after it turned on once it went black and had the PS button keep blinking blue.

    Well, I thought I kind of understood what was going, so I took the card out and put it into my other Vita which was working mighty fine with its small memcard. Black.

    Which means that basically, that awfully expensive 32 Gb card might just be dead with all of my datas and digital games.
    Maybe it’s still under warrant but I don’t even want to think about going through sending it back to Japan as I imported it.

    • Samsara09

      well,that’s tough luck.Give it nice burial,k?Hopefully you find out the cause of this.

      • Kayseur

        I’ll burry it with my wallet.
        I’ll be sure to make some backups next time.

        • Samsara09

          Well,this was unexpected,though.All of a sudden this happening?Well,I can understand you.My 3ds broke all of a sudden.

          • Kayseur

            Yeah, I didn’t do anything weird, most of the time it’s just lying on my desk waiting for me to play it. It might have gotten shaken a bit recently (since I was on a trip in Japan for the last three weeks) but nothing major happened, not even a fall.

            • Samsara09

              it must have been internal,then.Maybe a short-circuit?

              • Kayseur

                Oh. Now that you say that… I actually took my Vita to the toilets with me, and it was in a humid bathroom in Japan. Maybe something happened there.

                • Samsara09

                  Or maybe it melted,because of overheating and then short circuited?I played my 3ds too much…also,I bought it just when the 3ds was released.Wasn’t a smart move.Those consoles are usually badly done.You need to wait some months and years.Then they are sturdy.

                  • Kayseur

                    Could be as well. I *did* play a lot on the plane with little to no break, so much that my battery died and the hard got somewhat hot.

                    • Samsara09

                      well,i learned my lesson that day.Worse…that 3ds I bought before the price drop…and i missed the ambassador program.Buying consoles too soon is a mess.
                      Well,don’t worry.I hope you didn’t have too many games for the vita…

                    • Kayseur

                      That was my main Vita, with datas for at least 20 games or more. I wouldn’t have minded if it had happened on my sub with 3 games, but that’s also because it was my sub it couldn’t have happened on it.

                    • Samsara09

                      Well,if you are gonna play those games again,don’t waste time with the small fry.Focus on the big fishes first.
                      Good luck.

        • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

          Bury it in your backyard and hope it sprouts a Vita Tree. :P

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

      This is why I have a Plus account and I’m always backing up my data through cloud storage.

      • Kayseur

        Yeah, pretty useful feature of the Plus. Wish I had done that before, but the games had never been interesting enough to me so far (since I’m using a JP account).

    • Fainaru Luna

      Something similar happened recently with my PS3 slim, had all my data and digital download erased.
      Really wish I was a PSN+ memeber too.

        Aww yiss.

    • LordKaiser

      Happy Birthday! Enjoy the 20s while you can.

      • Samsara09

        heh,how old are you?

        • LordKaiser

          34

          • Samsara09

            Holy fuck…you seem like the jovial and carefree person…so I thought you would be closer to my age,19.

            • LordKaiser

              LOL so you think that people once they hit the 30s become very serious and Rigid?

              Well must of my friends went that way especially the most successful ones. They don’t listen to all you say, cut conversations with you because every aspect of their time is rationalized.

              I’m only serious when I need it. If i commit a error I try to fix it if I can’t I find someone who can if not then I learn from it lament it and little and go on.

              I don’t like act like these kind of people usually does.

              • Samsara09

                I don’t think that,but well…it’s more about personal experience.I hope I can keep such an attitude too.

                • LordKaiser

                  Just don’t be ashamed to like what you like, Don’t live to please anyone or change for anyone. People improve, learn from their mistakes and adapt but they never change their core personality.

                  I just didn’t felt the need to change what I am for anything or anyone. I’m self centered to a certain extent so even if I where a get a million of dollars I will act the same way as always because I’m very self aware.

                  Thanks for the compliment btw, you fixed my day.

      • new_tradition

        Ugh, I know. I feel like 20 was my last good year in life as of now. Things aren’t terrible, but I was so wide-eyed and farting sparkles back then :’D

        • Samsara09

          if you think like that,then shit is only gonna get worse.You gotta persevere.

        • LordKaiser

          You’re still fine as long as you had finished your bachelor’s long ago.

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

          No, nothing bad. It was just uneventful, that’s all.

          • new_tradition

            Eh, my previous b-days have been pretty uneventful too, but I don’t really mind *shrugs*

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

              I guess I don’t really mind it so much, it would just be nice to celebrate them with friends like I used to as a kid. Still… I guess I’d really never admit that outloud though, lol. I’d probably just put on my poker face if people were still around, but feel kind of happy inside, I guess.

              I don’t know. I’m just getting old. I’m tired, so I’m going to sleep now =3=

          Got anything fun planned?

          • new_tradition

            Not really, haha. Just chillin’ at home. My relatives came over earlier, so I was entertaining them for a while. Honestly, relaxing is pretty nice :3

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              Nothing wrong with that at all. I’m sometimes so busy myself that I enjoy getting the chance to sit back and relax, especially on holidays or my birthday. It’s a rarity though, the relaxing part.

              I usually have to plan my birthday celebration for sometime past my birthday. I’ve always felt that was kinda sad, but I usually end up being so busy, I can’t clear out my schedule in time.

              Sometimes though… I like to delay it and just chill at home on my birthday. Sit back and relax, have some nice me time and watch anime, or play video games, perhaps order out something nice.

              I guess what I’m saying is. I appreciate the relaxing moments as much as I do going out to celebrate with friends or family. :)

              (Have a good day. Gotta go for now.)

      Hope your 26 is eventful. I don’t even remember what I did when I was 26. I’m only 28, but years 22-26 are a bit of a waste for me due to health problems. Didn’t accomplish much, that’s for sure.

      Do better than I did! ; )

  • MrFinalgamer

    So I just beat Bioshock Infinite, and…that was an ending, huh? Playing the 2 games in the series back to back was quite interesting.

    While I kind of like Rapture a little bit more, I love the fact that you get to see Columbia, in it’s peaceful, and fucked up days. The story was incredibly better in Infinite, since it actually felt thought out (minus the awesome twist in the first game), but I felt that the story in Bioshock 1 was more of an excuse to have the player traverse through this fucked up place, and, if it wasn’t for the level of detail in everything, it wouldn’t have hold up.

    One thing I missed a lot in Infinite was the level of freedom the first game had. There was SO much to explore in the first game, and the fact that you always got rewarded with more backstory in the place, was icing on the cake. If there was one thing that both games did better than most, games out there, was atmosphere. Columbia, and Rapture always felt so lively. You felt that the place existed due to how much care was put into every single thing. Honestly, this is one of the very few times, that I just can’t wait to jump on board with the DLC.

    Anyway, I just have 1 question. How good is Bioshock 2? I kind of feel this void, that I need to feel…

    • Six

      It’s pretty good. The DLC, Minerva’s Den, is considered by some to be the best thing in the Bioshock series so far.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Huh, okay then. Kind of sucks that the DLC is the better part of the game, but whatever. I’ll definitely buy Burial at Sea as soon as possible. Seeing Rapture in its golden age sounds so fascinating!

        • Six

          Bioshock 2 is still a good game, and you can find it for like $5 new these days.

          The Burial at Sea DLC is great, especially the second part where you play as Elizabeth.

        • Six

          Also, the beginning of Burial at Sea’s second episode is probably one of my favorite moments in any video game ever.

          It’s incredible.

    For anyone that doesn’t know what it is, basically people upload selfies, and other people draw their own interpretations of them. It’s hilarious, some of the stuff on there is really impressive, and some of it is super bizarre. No one has drawn me yet, but I’ve done about 20 drawings of other people, it’s well addictive.

    Now I just need an Android version for my phone. This app is crying to be used with a stylus :p

          Final Fantasy has nothing to do with comics. Even tangentially. Square’s Play Arts figures of DC characters do.

          You silly, man ;)

          Plus, as Samsara is getting at, SDCC IS smack-dab in between E3 and TGS. So, from a development standpoint, it’s a waste of time to work on a new demo.

    • Six

      Some new Play Arts Kai figures.

      Expecting any kind of game announcement from them at SDCC is a waste of time, especially something regarding Final Fantasy XV or Kingdom Hearts III.

      • Martian Wong

        Sigh, TGS needs to come sooner~

        • Samsara09

          go play something and focus on your life.When you notice it,you will be in TGS.There is 2 months to TGS…august and september itself.

          • Martian Wong

            I am playing something currently, It is Hexzy Force for PSP.

            • Samsara09

              well,I say from personal experience.I can’t pull the “auto-jump” option,and do shit those two months.I have things to do…shit to study and all that.That’s what I mean,you know.
              This is why I hate the wait for TGS.Unlike with E3,I can’t simply do nothing.Doing something makes the wait feel shorter…but it sometimes makes it longer,as is the case with the second half.

              • Martian Wong

                August is my vacation time. So it will go by faster.

            Its a joke between me and Kelly you might not understand. Long time friends me and frosted flakes.

            Off topic did you watch the trailer for season 5 of walking dead? The hype! And Beth is alive motherfuka!!! Pure speculation though, I think the cannibal leader is the twist for father Gabriel. Interesting twist. How goes the graphic novel side of things though? I lost interest again XD

            • MrFinalgamer

              TBH, the trailer, while hype as shit, left me with a weird after taste. It looks great, but I was expecting a slower season, since, you know, all of the road towards DC is essentially character development, and also making the group look like savages, and this season looks like action galore…but whatever, I’ll still watch.

              The graphic novel is taking an interesting turn. Carl is still half psycho, but the interesting thing is how:

              a) we know Rick is no where near as badass as he was, and he could easily die, if he was in the wild again.

              b) a lot of the “soldiers” that Alexandria has don’t really respect Rick, as much fear them…and hot damn does Rick get PISSED when a mistake happens.

              • Gigus

                Ah, so I guess I’m not missing anything. It seems like they’re taking a lot of stuff from the show and vice versa. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing but I’d like to see something different. I’ll hold off my opinion for now and catch up to see if the comic didn’t turn into some big reflection of the show with just minor differences.
                I was really hoping for a full metal alchemist thing here between the original anime version and the original manga if you get what I’m saying. Meaning somewhat different versions but still the same and enjoyable.

                • MrFinalgamer

                  Well, it looked like they were trying to do something similar to FMA 2003 at first, but most of those changes weren’t too good (Sophia arc, Andrea, staying in the farm for months, Andrea, the first battle between the prison, and Woodbury, Andrea). But with Terminus, the seem to be going with that direction once again. And heck, with Father Gabriel being introduced this season, it looks like Terminus might not be The Hunters (and if they are, they’re completely different).

                  • Gigus

                    Lol guess we’re not on the same level since I think the comic is getting less interesting and the live adaptation is XD. But mainly I want both to be good. That’s why I threw out the fma comic/anime comparison cause I loved both equally. Don’t know why I didn’t like the carbon copy fma.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      I wouldn’t have minded an FMA style, but the show started nearly 1:1 with the comic, and some of the changes were great (Shane), others made me want to go in a corner, and cry, due to disappointment (Andrea). A this point, I would appreciate, if they took a Game of Thrones route, instead (faithful to the books, while changing some characters), not flip flopping, between being different, and 1:1 (although, mah boy Abraham better stay a badass, no matter what!)

      I’ve only seen the 1st episode, and, besides that whole ending battle making no sense (they should have put Izanagi-No-Okami, instead of regular, crappy, Izanagi), nothing was as offensively bad as I thought it was going to be…minus the animation, that is still awful. First time I saw Morooka, I just had to pause the video for a couple of minutes…

      But so far, it was decent at best. I’ll watch it, just to make fun of it later on…kind of like SAO2 (although, I’m still hoping that starts becoming as good as S1 part A)

  • Sirichanh

    I thought the summer season for anime would be a little better. I guess not.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Do what I do; go hunt down some older series on Rightstuf (or wherever), and enjoy some older stuff.

      I mean, I’m watching some current stuff. But I’m also working my way through Serial Experiments Lain, Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040, Canaan, Devil May Cry, Rahxephon and some other stuff that I either missed when they originally aired, or I didn’t finish before Netflix took ‘em down or something.

      It’s always a good time to watch older stuff ( ^ – ^ ). Goes well with what I’m watching online as Toonami, Crunchyroll and Daisuke’s Youtube channel air their stuff.

          Yeah, they’ll just keep prices… something that isn’t finalized or fully tested in the market, the same while they crash and burn.

          Rather than… you know… change them.

    I need help finding a game, i almost never have this kind of trouble but there actually out of 1000 is one game that i forgot about xD

    The game starts you of as a kid learning kung fu? then you grow up and visit many different asian villages, the game changes your looks depending on what you eat?

    This might sound very confusing but i don’t really remember that much but i think you could level up in this game and it was sort of an open worl 3D beat em up?

    I think it was on the PS1 system.

    • Elvick

      First thing that came to mind was Jade Empire… but I don’t know if you start as a kid, been awhile, and I can’t think of whether it had any food thing about it. And it’s obviously not on PSone.

  • shogunknight

    Read 2 articles on Eurogamer:

    One of them was on the analysis on Last of Us Remaster, framerate isnt actually locked at 60fps but it has a stable framerate with it dipping to lowest 48fps in a heavy scenario. Overall, its a good port/remaster and ill definitely try it out when I get a PS4.

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-vs-the-last-of-us-remastered

    The other was quite interesting, they talked about games considered next gen before their time (PS3/360 games). The games they selected were Battlefield 3, Crysis Trilogy, Tomb Raider, Grand tourismo 6, GTAV, Metro 2033/Metro Last light with Last of Us as their first test case on the remastered train.

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-next-gen-before-their-time

    Some i agree (GTAV and GT6), some i dont (Tomb Raider & Metro, well since they were also made on PC). It made me want to ask, what games on PS3 and 360 would you have considered ahead of its gen?

    • Budgiecat

      Beyond: two Souls

      Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign

      thats about it

      • shogunknight

        Beyond is a good choice, i think majority of the games released last year would be in the list (Puppeteer would have been nice). Guilty gear xrd is already coming to the PS4 though, you think it would have looked better if it was announced and made on PS4 only?

        • Budgiecat

          only if it were made on Unreal 4 instead of Unreal 3.

          • shogunknight

            Ah yes youre right, totally forgot the game uses UE3 and not UE4. I wonder what unreal engine Tekken 7 would be using

            • bloodiOS

              Tekken 7 is using UE4. As for Xrd, with its art direction, going with UE4 wouldn’t look any different. Maybe it would help with the performance but nothing optimization can’t do.

              • Budgiecat

                the character model lines would be cleaner and rounder and the backgrounds could also be cel shaded and more detailed

                • bloodiOS

                  Doesn’t seem like the limitation of the engine, but more like because it’s a cross-gen title that was heavily optimized for last-gen systems. If it was to target current-gen or the PS4 exclusively from the very beginning, it would look much better, even if powered by UE3. Given its art direction, there shouldn’t be any difference in how it looks when powered by UE4. Now, if it was the kind that aims for photorealism like the new Mortal Kombat, there would be a huge difference.

                  • Budgiecat

                    maybe if it were “modified UE3 engine” ala Batman AK.

                    But even then, UE4 would still look way cleaner. Polygon count and all…

                    • bloodiOS

                      Because polycount would be limited by the fact that it’s powered by UE3. Let’s pretend this never existed:And seriously, remember that you’re talking about an anime style game and not a photorealistic one.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Like I said, viewing the character models up close you can still see the engine limitations via polygon count via blocky angles on the lines and such; anime style, photorealistic style makes no difference. Unreal 4 would further improve these elements..

                      also, spare me that bullshot demo lol

                    • bloodiOS

                      And like I said, that’s just due the fact that it’s a cross-gen title heavily optimized for last-gen. Judging the limitation of the engine based off those is simply disingenuous *LOL*, because it would be a whole lot better if it’s exclusive to the PS4. You can also say the video is bullshot all you want, but that there is an extreme example running in real-time on a very powerful machine. The engine really is very capable, if given the right specs and optimization. And let’s be honest here, the technologies behind Xrd put much more focus on the skillfully handcrafted design rather than other taxing eye-candies effects often found games that aim for photorealism. It’s those areas that the UE4 is superior, but this kind of design would remain the same. The game will simply look much better if targeting current-gen hardware exclusively, without the need to move to UE4. If there’s ever a need, it would be that the engine is more optimized for current-gen systems, which would make it easier for the team achieve the optimal result on consoles.

                    • Budgiecat

                      If the engine was truly that capable, they wouldn’t have bothered with UE4. It’s a bullshot.

                      anyways, nope.

                    • bloodiOS

                      *LOL* Are you serious? Did you see the UE4 demo, it was far more impressive than the UE3 one. They bothered with the UE4 because it’s even more capable than that!Honestly, it’s like you refuse to listen to reasons. I said with the right specs and optimization, the engine is capable of such feats, and given that those demoes ran on extremely powerful PCs, such results are well expected. That doesn’t matter though because like I said, anime style games that don’t make use of taxing eye-candies effects only need a fraction of that power to achieve a desirable result and UE3 is just as capable as UE4 in doing that.

    Oh my goodness. Just bought a 3DS again after having to sell mine about a year ago— I’m going nuts with spending on the EShop!!! I’m currently addicted to Rusty’s Real Deal baseball (I’m following a guide to get it all cheapest though), but in the 3 days I’ve owned this thing I’ve bought: Attack of the Friday Monsters, Harmo Knight, and Shovel Knight also.
    I’m super close to buying Senran Kagura also, but I’m going to wait until I find out whether or not I won this JPN 3DS off an auction site (I’ll import the physical copy, if so).

    But yeah: “Chew Your Food” comes to mind— but I just can’t help myself! So much interesting stuff on the Eshop; it’s really much more flush from when I was last on it.

    …gotta’ say; Starship Damrey looks pretty great too!

      Here are some facts.

      • McPoo

        I was always under the impression that biological sex is male/female, whereas gender is influenced by culture and society and so can sit on a spectrum.

        That’s what I remember learning in sixth form Sociology anyway.

        Also, I’d never heard of the term cis until recently, I had to go look it up >_>

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

          Sorry, I grew up in a time where you filled out forms that had:

          Sex: Male ☐ Female ☐

          That was back when kids thought it would be funny to say “yes please” as the answer in school and whatnot, lol. You can feel like a ‘man trapped in a woman’s body’ all you want, but at the end of the day… You’re still a man, so no sense in calling yourself a woman if it isn’t true.

          • McPoo

            Yeah that’s what I mean, biological sex just has the two options.

            Gender is shaped by culture, society and personal identity, and so there’s all sorts of things it could be.

            All I’m saying is that sex and gender are two different things. That chart you posted would be perfectly valid if it was about sex, rather than gender.

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

              Sex =/= Gender

              Conflicting definitions from different generations as far as I’m concerned. Everybody these days wants to make something out to be more than it really is so it can suit their needs. That’s the only reason we even have 50+ genders these days.

              48 of those are bullshit. There are only two. Male and female. Just because you call yourself a toaster doesn’t make you one.

              Culture or not, it simply won’t be true.

              • LordKaiser

                What about those who went trough surgery? XD Idk how to label them.

                • McPoo

                  Suppose it depends what surgery they went through.

                  • LordKaiser

                  Male to female = Female
                  Female to male = Male

                  Simple enough.

              • McPoo

                Really that chart should be labelled “sex is” for the left column, and “gender is” for the right column. Everything there is correct really, they’ve just not categorised them properly.

                What makes the older definition of gender the right one? Surely the definition should evolve and change alongside society?

                I can understand some people aren’t open to this sort of thinking, I know it’s a subject that causes confusion. I think telling people they’re wrong isn’t on though, because they’re not.

                  No, I’m pretty sure I can tell people they’re wrong when they begin addressing people with pronouns involving ‘kin’, ‘cis’, etc. just to try and be different. That’s all it really is, honestly. Most of these people just want their voice to be heard, so they come up with ridiculous terminology to address themselves, or others, as and hope someone will pay attention to them.

                  This is why our society is a fucking cesspool right now because we’re giving people like this waaaaaaaaaay too much leniency, like yourself, and allowing them to destroy not only our way of life, but our language as well. Evolve and change, you say? More like devolve.

                  One day they wake up and want to be called a potato, so everyone just pats them on the back and says, “That’s okay, we accept you however you are.” instead of slapping the shit out of them so they’re brought back to reality. People really need to stop changing the world to meet the needs of every individual and instead have people meet the needs of the world.

                  We don’t need fucking potato cismale spacekin transdimensional binary monkeys in our society, or whatever the fuck they want to call themselves.

                  • McPoo

                    In what way is someone describing their gender as something other than male or female “destroying your way of life”. It doesn’t affect me, and it helps a group of people who feel misrepresented by traditional definitions. I don’t see the issue with people wanting their voice to be heard either.

                    Also, are you speaking on societies behalf regarding what we “need”? Or are you just saying that you don’t want these things?

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

                      Actually, it DOES have an effect on me when people are spouting nonsense and expecting me to believe it just because they think it’s true. Suddenly I’m the bad guy and being given grief by these people because I’m not accepting their bullshit.

                      As for the societal statement… I’d say that society as a whole does not need this trash to spread around. Things are already bad enough in the world as it is. The last thing we need on top of that is a group of individuals with a voice so loud that everyone begins believing what they preach, even if it’s bullshit.

                      We already have religion for that. We don’t need this shit too.

                    • McPoo

                      Have you considered you’re being called the bad guy for good reason? That it’s not all bullshit, and you’re dismissing people simply because you don’t like what they have to say?

                      Because it just seems like you have a bit of a vendetta.

                    • Budgiecat

                      there’s people out there calling themselves all kinds of crazy things so yes, if someone wants to be taken seriously because they think they were born a potato, well then fuck their feelings…

                    • McPoo

                      Surely you can see the difference between someone saying they’re a potato though, and someone saying they identify as such an such gender?

                      That’s just common sense, I thought it went without saying.

                      I’ve been on there several times, I’ve never seen anyone say in all seriousness though that they associate their gender identity with that of a potato, or anything similarly absurd.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Over half the absurd labels I never even know existed until Tetsuya posted them here.

                      Lets not forget all the embarrassing ranting people did online when Prince William ‘s son was born and people were complaining they said “It’s a boy!”

                      I do not think this absurdity happened when Prince Henry and Prince William were born in 1980 or whenever..

                    • McPoo

                      I won’t lie, I don’t know who Prince Henry is.

                    • Budgiecat

                      (Harry) same person. Also I meant William (his brother) as far as having the newborn son..

                    • McPoo

                      Come on matey, you can’t have a dig about researching stuff and then get the name (and identity) of one of the most famous men in the world wrong. Sort it aht.

                      Also, I agree some stuff people say is silly. But I could say that about both sides of the camp. All I was saying originally is that people have the right to define their gender as whatever they want. I might not necessarily agree with it, but it’s their gender identity, I’m not going to tell them what they can and can’t do with it. That’s why I took issue with that chart, as it was substituting biological sex for gender and claiming these people were in the wrong.

                    • Budgiecat

                      doesn’t change the point. And if you’re from Europe, you should know Prince Harry was born Prince Henry of Wales, so don’t be pointing fingers at me Mr. doodoo head

                    • McPoo

                      M8 no one calls him Henry. He’s Prince Harry. Plus he’s not Prince William :p

                    • Budgiecat

                      Doesnt change the fact he is Prince Henry.

                      He was still right about you needing to research that particular topic though. Just because he made a mistake on this name (which was irrelevant to our discussion anyway) doesn’t make his point any less valid. The problem I’ve been trying to tell you about is like a cancer and it’s killing our society (I referred to this as a ‘societal plague’ a couple of months ago or so).

                    • McPoo

                      The “problem” you’ve been talking about isn’t really a problem. You’ve called it a societal plague before but you never actually said how it’s affecting society. You’ve only mentioned personal reasons, like you being called a bad guy for telling these people they are wrong.

                      This all stemmed from that chart you posted – the issue I took with it is that it was wrong information. I don’t really care what people define their gender as, if I’m being honest. I do believe though that gender is a spectrum, and that they’re welcome to sit wherever they want it, and describe themselves as whatever they want. Again going back to that chart, it was telling people they are wrong for doing this, when they’re not.

                      I think you’re right about this discussion going nowhere though, I don’t expect you to change your mind and I doubt I will too, somehow.

                    • McPoo

                      They’re academic theories, but I get your point. If you ever come up with those reasons for them being a “societal plague” though, please do let me know. As abhorrent as some of the stuff you say is, it is interesting to hear the thoughts of someone like you.

                      Do you wanna talk about something else now? Do you watch Banshee? It’s rate good.

                      “academic” or not is irrelevant. Just because you claim them to be academic doesn’t give them any merit. There are plenty of people out there in the world that went to law school for 8 years just to spout bullshit in order to defend their client so they can get paid, so please don’t tell me that your theories are “academic” as if that actually means anything.

                      I’ve listed all of the reasons as to why this is a plague. If you would have been paying attention and read my posts thoroughly, you can see my points as to why this is terrible as clear as day, but hey… Ya know what? If you think some people screaming like psychos is perfectly normal and is not corrupting our society as a whole, then feel free to continue living in your little bubble while I try to deal with shit going on in the real world.

                    • McPoo

                      What shit do you deal with in the real world, m8? Tell me all about it – a problem shared is a problem halved, after all. I presume you’re out there, being a shining beacon in this cesspit we call society, doing your part to make it a better place for everyone (whose beliefs you don’t dislike enough to belittle).

                      And again, you’ve not provided any reasons for how or why these people are bad for society, other than how they affect you personally. The reason you gave for that was hardly a convincing argument, too. All you’ve been doing is screaming louder and louder that you don’t like them.

                      EDIT – Forgot to ask about Banshee. Have you not seen it? It’s excellent. I’ve just started season 2, as it’s only been on for a week or two in the UK. I think it ended ages ago in the US. Definitely worth a watch.

I’m paraphrasing here, but I think I said something to the extent of, “What the hell is wrong with people these days? I remember when I was a kid, if you were born with a penis, you were considered a boy. Now, apparently that’s not the case.” It’s fucking insane is what it is.

                      Most of these people coming up with all these new terms and such don’t even know what the hell to think about themselves or the world around them, and this is probably just being used as a coping mechanism. It’s just absurd.

                      Scenario A: Man notices person that looks like a female and is dressed like one. They address them as such, but is met with hostility. The person demands to be addressed as a male.

                      Scenario B: Man notices person that looks like a male and is dressed like one. They address them as such, but is met with hostility. The person demands to be addressed as a female.

                      Scenario C: Man claims to think like a woman, so he decides he wants to be addressed as a female among female companions at feminist gatherings, but wishes to be addressed as a male when hanging around his bros (yes, this happens)

                      I’m sorry, but I just can’t take someone seriously if they’re changing their mind on what gender they are even from day to night. If someone tells me that they don’t want to be addressed as a “man” for having a penis or a “woman” for having tits, I’m just going to look at them like they’re crazy, probably call them an “it” and walk away.

                      I dunno whats going on.

                      It’s like, we’re having people go too far psycho right conservative (borderline racists and gun nuts), and people going way too far weirdo left (SJW, newgenders, angry feminazis, hipster douches making hippies look normal). Meanwhile Aids, Cancer, famine, racism, bad economy, homelessleness, and religious wars and pollution is still rampant

                      It’s kind of difficult to relate yourself to a gender that only exists among you and your group of friends no thanks to Tumblr though. Just because you created a word doesn’t suddenly give it a meaning and is meant to be taken seriously.

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

                      Have you ever considered that maybe you’ve already been brainwashed by them and can’t distinguish the difference between ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ any more? Sorry man, but if you’re going to defend this garbage, I’m going to have to ask you to step back behind the line.

                      We’re on different teams here, so it might be best if you just stay on your own side in regards to this topic and just leave it at that, thanks.

    • shogunknight

      It is TLOU GOTY edition, Game of the year edition of a game of the year. Though i agree with some things you said, i havent played it yet so i guess its a good offer for me, not really sure for those that have already played it

      Edit: I think the 10/10 score is too much though

      • Gigus

        10/10 is too much for any game.

        • LordKaiser

          They got paid good.

        • MrFinalgamer

          I disagree whole heatedly here. 10/10 should not symbolize that the game is perfect, because nothing is. Something ALWAYS has an error somewhere. But a 10/10 should symbolize games that influence, or will influence the industry in a positive light.

          It’s a game that excels in so many areas, and that developers will strive to make something as good as that. Essentially, a 10/10 should be seen as a benchmark of what’s the best thing in the industry at the moment.

          Games like FFVI, MGS, GTA 3. Games that helped revolutionize the industry, and push it forward. THAT is what a 10/10 means, not that the game is perfect.

          • bloodiOS

            Games should just be reviewed using either “FUCK YES!”, “FUCK NO!”, or “FUCK YOU!!!”

            • MrFinalgamer

              Well, yes, and no. For the common consumer, that would be the best form of review. Just say whether it’s an insta-buy, worth buying at full price, wait for a price drop, rent it, be drunk while playing to enjoy, burn it, and be done with it. Easy for the consumer to understand.

              But we it’s always nice to see more in-depth reviews. Talking not just as if it was a game, but talking about what it means to the industry as a whole. How this game helps revolutionize a certain genre, I always like reading that sort of stuff. =/

              • bloodiOS

                I know, I know, but at the end of the reviews, they should replace the points system with what I mentioned there ;P

                • MrFinalgamer

                  But…what would the “FUCK YOU!!!” mean? Fuck you for even considering buying this horrible game?

                  • bloodiOS

                    “Fuck you” would be meant for the developers of the game as in “fuck you” for making such horrible piece of shit. I fully expect not to see that often though ;)

      Really want to play this game!! It’s similar to Gunslinger Stratos and all.

      Lost Planet 2 is the last game that i played with a similar style like this.

    This episode in a nutshell: Death, cripples, sex, Russia, babies, and mexican standoffs…

    • Ping92

      I’m waiting for all episodes to come out before i start playing season 2.

      How does it fair against season 1 so far?

      • MrFinalgamer

        Oh it’s great. The beginning of Season 2 is just rubbing salt in a pretty old wound, and everything afterwards, is just saddness.

        The game is a LOT more brutal, though. I like the characters quite a bit, although some are really annoying (looking at you Sarah!). My only real complain is how they make you (a goddamn 11 year old!) do so many things, that the adults should do. Gameplay wise, I get it, but come on!

        I don’t know, I feel that Jane will be this season’s parkour girl, from S1 E4 (fitting how the 2 badass girls leave yah in the same episode). I have this feeling that all, but 1, or 2 Russians will be dead, and the whole group, but Clementine will be dead.

        And fuck Arvo, that Russian piece of shit. Never trust cripples! Same happened in 400 days…

        • Ghost Doge

          Iunno, everything that happened in this episode felt so predictable, save for a couple of moments. Only reason I’m looking forward to the next episode is cause it’ll be the end of the season, honestly :P

            I don’t know about you, but I sure didn’t expect “him” boning, specially in that situation…and those fucking Russians!? The hell did they come from?

      It’s Metroid Other, Other M!

      • Six

        I think you are getting Ninja Theory mixed up with Team Ninja.

        • MrFinalgamer

          Dammit! I thought I had a nice joke going there…

    • shogunknight

      That would be great if true. They said on the 12th of August, so thats probably in the same time as Sonys conference.

      • Six

        They mentioned August 12th in regards to GDC Europe. They’ll be talking about their canned games there.

        • shogunknight

          Why is GDC taking place on the same day as Gamescom? Ugh

    • Elvick

      I would love a new Heavenly Sword. Please Yevon, give this to me.

      • Budgiecat

        have you tried kicking a stranded Blitzball by the beach for good luck?

        • Elvick

          Does playing FFX count?

            nope.

              From what I’ve heard about that… NEVAR

    So I just went on a shopping spree and bought me this games:
    Nier
    3D Dot Game Heroes
    Demon Souls
    Sly Cooper Collection
    Eternal Sonata
    Varlkyria Chronicles
    MGS Rising
    Zone Enders HD
    Ni No Kuni
    Uncharted Dual Pack (1+2)
    Star Ocean International
    Folklore
    Red Dead Redemption GOTY-E
    Dishonored GOTY-E
    Fallout 3 GOTY-E
    Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition
    Earth Defense Force 2025
    Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD
    I know for fact that some of this are good, others I have no clue.
    Now where should I start..

    • MrFinalgamer
      • pixxxelz

        The thing is I’m not the biggest fan of SRPG’s
        but I see VC every where on the internet plus a friend of mine won’t shut up about it, so who knows if I’ll end up liking it

        Edit: also I bought Valkyria Chronicles online and it won’t be here until Friday so I can’t start with that one

        • MrFinalgamer

          Valkyria Chronicles isn’t your standard SRPG. Although, keep in mind that there’s a BIG difficulty curve fairly early on, and most players quit in that mission.

          TBH, I would start with the shorter games first, just to get them out of the way.

          • Six

            “most players quit in that mission”

            I know I did. Sold the game too. :P

            • MrFinalgamer

              But…why would you do that!? The mission is balls to the wall hard, and trying to keep everyone alive in that mission is a pain, but the game gets SOO good later on! You should buy it again some time. It’s $18 in Amazon.

              • Budgiecat

                because he’s Six.

                Not Seven.

                you and Six also dun wanna play Aliens: Isolation because of scarediness so yeah you’re in the WUSSS corner as well.

              you disappoint me

          • Kobracon

            If its the mission with the big tank and then a Valkyrie then I am so happy I got past that

            • MrFinalgamer

              Yes, that’s the legendary mission everyone rage quits at.

              • Kobracon

                Lol its ironic that I got super sidetracked AFTER beating that stage and have never finished the game till now. The save is still intact, so I guess its a good a time as any to continue XD

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

          I’d hardly consider Valkyria Chronicles your traditional SRPG, lol.

        Valkyria Chronicles is good and Folklore is decent.
        I heard EDF 2025 was good too, but they still missing my old school Show era Godzilla monsters from EDF 2….

      • pixxxelz

        I actually like that list drakengard 3 was amazing and I’ve heard nier is even better but I also bought that one online (couldn’t find on stores) but I’ll make it my second for sure

        • Six

          I haven’t played Drakengard 3, but Nier is easily my favorite JRPG of the 7th console gen outside of the Souls games.

          And the OST is second to none.

          • Budgiecat

            OST is not as good as Megaman 2, Last Story and Fist of the North Star

            • Six

              You’re right. It’s better.

              • Budgiecat

                nope and JJBA ASB is better than it too

                    no its not. If you knew anything about the real world musicians the characters are based on; the soundtrack does an ingenious job of cleverly mixing them in…

                      maybe some as a point of plagiary due to lack of ideas , but never woven in as intentionally so that fans could try to figure them out as homage

                    Typical of them since they reuse music or remix it into other games. Hell, I even heard something similar from .hack//Versus in JJBA ASB, lol. I guess they figured they could get away with it since .hack//Versus was only sold with a Blu-ray, so it wouldn’t be as familiar to people :p

                    Turns out, a friend of mine told me that the song I heard in .hack//Versus reminded him of something from one of the Naruto games too, lol.

              Man, it’s fantastic.

    • Elvick

      If you aren’t going to bother with trophies, knock out Uncharted. It’s probably the fastest out of the bunch. Should be noted Drake’s Fortune is a bit rough around the edges now, but at least you’ll get to see how U2 is such a massive improvement like the rest of us. :p

      • pixxxelz

        Naw I’m not trophy whore but i already started with KH1.5 lol it shouldn’t take me that long to finish though since I’m not going to bother with chain of memories

      Eternal Sonata and Ni No Kuni… nice.

    • Kobracon

      I always awful things about Star Ocean so not sure about that but Eternal Sonata is a very solid JRPG and my advice for EDF is that you get a good friend and go nuts with the game.

      I hear Nier is a great game but never played it myself.

            • Budgiecat

              I just dont like that ND lied like that up to 1 week before release, then went zip lipped about it ever since, and then refused to bother fixing it for the remaster, and still remaining zip lipped about it (A.I.)

              Also Neil neutering himself by admitting SJW femitroll Anita Sarkeesian’s finger pointing aura was in his mind when developing his female characters while presenting her for a GDC award that she clearly did not deserve..(what is gaming coming to?)

              Otherwise the game itself is rather mediocre with a Walking Dead/the Road/Children of Men pasted story. Oh and plenty of ladders and bins.

              I also don’t trust IGN

                It seems like a pretty safe game, all things considered.

    “The scene takes place at Tommy’s Dam one night four years later. Joel talks about how Tommy is trying to get Joel hitched to a girl named Esther. Ellie lies acting fairly distant, probably conflicted about joel’s lie. Joel then says he has a special gift for her and busts out a guitar. Then he plays a special song for her. Then he gives her the guitar and promises to teach her. The scene ends with her striking a note on the guitar”

    This is only a concept by Neil Druckmann. So it may changed in the near future.

    The Last of Us 2 possibly happening!!

      • Elvick

        I think that’s nonsense.

        • Budgiecat

          Well Neil seems to pride himself on being a pretentious hipster douche so maybe yeah..

    • MrFinalgamer

      It would have been more fitting if he sang, instead of just play the guitar…Still, kind of weird, since I thought that their game, after Uncharted was going to be something non Last of Us related.

    • BtShadowX

      Neil also said prior to the scene that it’s a goodbye to Joel and Ellie.• http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=123107438&postcount=1294So&hellip; they’re not really hinting at a potential sequel but simply made it clear that this is it for The Last of Us.

      • Elvick

        Not really. They can continue The Last of Us without Joel and Ellie.

        There’s a whole world. The universe doesn’t revolve around those two.

    • Budgiecat

      He should put Anita Sarkeesian in the game and have her killed off in the first 10 minutes.

      Also, pics pretty accurate of the game: see no Ellie reflection in the water :P

      • PrinceHeir

        LMAO

      • bloodiOS

        There are reflections in the remaster one though.

        • Budgiecat

          show me Annie..

          • bloodiOS

            I did before didn’t I? Look at the crane’s reflection in the water:
            And this is Eurogamer’s observation:”While effects work can look a little basic in places, the higher precision marries up perfectly in most cases with the full HD resolution, while some effects - such as water reflections - put a lot of full-blooded PS4 and Xbox One titles to shame.

            • Budgiecat
              • bloodiOS

                Well, how about we wait until I get my hands on the PS4 because, I can only work with what others have provided right now. I doubt Joel and Ellie missing their reflections in the water would impress Eurogamer enough to claim that the game water reflections putting a lot of full-blooded PS4 and XBO titles to shame.

                  I guess we’ll have to wait for PS5 version

                  Greatness Awaits…

                  • bloodiOS

                    Just stop playing game and use your imagination instead.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Even if it’s an Ellie shower scene?

                    • bloodiOS

                      Sure, imagine it away. Who would dare to stop one’s imagination?

                    • Budgiecat

                      Can you be in the game?

                    • bloodiOS

                      It’s your imagination why ask me?

                    • Budgiecat

                      Because its only polite to. the scene will be you and Ellie in the shower but then an infected Anita Sarkeesian comes barging in. You may not survive..

                    • bloodiOS

                      More like verbalizing your harrassment. I don’t care what kind of perverted imagination you got in your head, just don’t say it out loud. Let’s whatever originated from your mind stay within the boundary of it.

                    • Budgiecat

                      lol someone just stated you’re the most perverted one here based on what you link to here, and you’re telling me to keep private? XD

                    • bloodiOS

                      I’m telling you keep whatever perverted imagination that involves me private. Shoving it in my face is an harrassment. I may be perverted but I don’t harass people.

                    • Budgiecat

                      I was joking I can’t do imaginary game playing. Don’t work for me. I’m a hands on cat!

              • bloodiOS

                Oh, wait wait, what’s that I see reflecting on the surface of that filthy water there, is it not Ellie’s distorted reflection?

                • Budgiecat

                  thats pretty lame Bloodios. Especially coming from you with your usual high standards.

                  that barely counts as a reflection its so pathetic.
                  And no depth of field and PS2 looking cars?

                  Show me at least proper mirror reflection (besides Joel’s daughter in the prologue) and true visible water reflection in the “6 months later” scene where theyre walking in the clear river bank…

                    Yes, reflections don’t count as reflections because of your agenda. And let’s shift to other topics because of your agenda. My purpose here is only refute your claim of the game having no reflection, not once did I say it was up to my standards.

                    • Budgiecat

                      that barely counts as a reflection

                      ND made some lame ass excuse as to why it couldn’t be done on the PS3 which is why I called BS and now they barely do it here on a platform 10x more powerful. Yet the whole Remaster PR marketing is about gloating how much improved the so called graphics are.

                      http://freethoughtblogs.com/entequilaesverdad/files/2013/04/lol.jpg

                    • bloodiOS

                      That’s none of my problem, isn’t it? And it doesn’t make your claim of the game having no reflection any less wrong, given that it does now. I’ll see what they can do with Uncharted 4 before judging whatever. Well, maybe I’ll just wait for Eurogamer’s screenshots because I don’t want to buy another Uncharted just to have it sitting there collecting dusts…

                    • Budgiecat

                      lol UC4 is a totally different and new game hello

                    • bloodiOS

                      It’s called can’t please everyone. To some it’s already a great improvement. But whatever, I don’t want to sit and listen to your endless obsession with PR’s words with deep-rooted anger hidden behind each “lol”. I’ll buy the game again on the PS4 to enjoy the better performance but it’s forever a PS3 game to me. I’m not expecting that much from a remaster.

                    • Budgiecat

                      its called a cash grab and you know it

                      come on,
                      ya know

                      And the whole world has to answer right now when I tell you once again:
                      It’s bad

                    • bloodiOS

                      So? That’s the world and its problems. It doesn’t affect me and my enjoyment the same way it affected yours.

                    • Budgiecat

                      your inconsistency in your tolerance shows

                    • bloodiOS

                      Well, duh. I’m human, not a program. In the end, it’s all about what pleases me.

                    • Budgiecat

                      then you wouldn’t be trying so hard to defend it if it’s problems didnt affect you.

                      I mean, before you’ve been as painstakingly observant to the most minute of graphical flaws like the polygonal roundness of the giant pink toes on the Ice cream truck in InFamous SS….

                    • bloodiOS

                      I didn’t defend whether or not it was cash grab, my original purpose here was to refute your no reflection statement, simply because I thought it wasn’t true. Also, ISS is a PS4 game. This is forever a PS3 game, it’s just being remastered remember? My observation for this game is already done after the game was released on the PS3, whatever improvements there are in this port, I’ll take them as bonuses.

                    • Budgiecat

                      yes its a remaster but like I said, ND is lauding it like its the 2nd coming of Christ and that the graphical improvements are mind blowing legendary, which they obviously are not. And lol-IGN is not helping matters

                      Meanwhile they did nothing to improve the gameplay A.I. they originally lied about anyway.

                    • bloodiOS

                      PR gonna PR, what can you do. Anyway, I’ll stop here, I don’t think can contribute to this discussion any further than I already had.

                    • Budgiecat

                      yeah let’s squash it

                      *squashes a squash*

                Deadly Premonition should be considered an unfair comparison. Have you seen the driving controls in that game?!

                • MrFinalgamer

                  Driving controls? Have you seen that game period? That game is just so…beautiful, in the most disgusting way possible.

        I can get why she’s mad. She WANTED to die back, with Riley, but her being immune gave her an opportunity to do that, and help humanity. She had a resolve, and for it to be denied, with no consent, and when she told him that she wanted it…yeah, I get why she’s pissed. From what I can gather, she’s not like “I fucking hate your guts” kind of angry, but rather…resentful.

          I’m not saying she doesn’t have a right to be upset and question Joel’s decision. All I’m saying is that it just doesn’t make sense for her to still be with him and still be upset about it four years later.

            Well, everyone she knows is either dead, a mentally unstable prick, or with Joel, and Tommy. She doesn’t really have many options, when it comes to a safe place to stay.

            She’s still nice to him, and all, but they’re not as close as they were.

              I’m just putting myself in her shoes. If I chose to give my life in hope of saving many others but my best friend interfered because he didn’t want me to die, I’d be a little angry too. If I’m angry enough to still be upset about it four years later, I’d be making every attempt to find another group to live with. Otherwise, I’d let it go eventually because being upset and holding onto those negative emotions will only make survival that much more difficult.

              But hey, that’s all based off the original post which contains someone else’s interpretation of the scene. For all we know, Ellie was acting distant because of some shit that went down relatively recently, completely unrelated to what happened four years ago :P

          • bloodiOS

            I don’t think she hates his guts, man. She most likely still regards him quite highly just that she isn’t quite sure how to fully warm up to him after that event. There are just sometimes when you’re stuck in middle not sure which direction to inch towards despite knowing better.

            • Ghost Doge

              And that indecisiveness can have a huge impact even in ordinary life, so it’s that much more important in a world where the chances of you becoming something’s dinner when you go outside are much, much higher.

              But as is the case with most things when it comes to games/movies/anime/etc, real world logic tends to make things boring :D

              • bloodiOS

                What if her indecisiveness is only at the “not sure what to say during these kind of conversations” level. As far as surviving goes, I’m sure she’s flexible enough to manage that. Humans are not such rigid creatures, man.

                • Ghost Doge

                  For the sake of setting the mood, I agree. I can picture it as a little flashback in her head, resulting in her seeming distant and/or lost in thought while whatever other conversation is going on, perhaps with someone else having looked to her for a reaction to a joke or input on the ongoing discussion. For all we know she’s emotionally stable and everything’s been squared away, but it’s just one of those times where you look back at events in your past and wonder ‘what if’.

                  • bloodiOS

                    Could be. If only someone would give us the fucking footage >=(

              • MrFinalgamer

                To be fair, she does live in what’s the equivalent of Alexandria (a safe heaven, for non Walking Dead readers), so she can afford to be decisive…

                • Ghost Doge

                  That’s another thing I see in many games/movies where the world as we know it is over and death is just a few fences/walls away. You can’t afford to feel safe because that’s when stupid shit happens! Which goes along with what I said about real world vs entertainment. Hell, you and I have had that conversation in the past anyway, so we both know that realism is boring :P

      • futuristic_imagination

        They never did say it was 4 years, the general consensus that attended the event said it was sometime after the ending of the game.

          “The scene takes place at Tommy’s Dam one night four years later.”

          [EDIT] To be fair, I never watched the stream, saw a post on twitter, article on some website, etc. I’m taking Prince’s word for it, so if what is in the original post is inaccurate, disregard :P

          • futuristic_imagination

            We probably won’t know which is true because Druckmann stressed that it will never be released or revealed in any other form. Hopefully somebody recorded it (its not on the stream)

    • futuristic_imagination

      I watched the stream and it was well worth watching, especially that ending :)

      When they reenact some scenes from the game it felt like I was playing the game. You kind of appreciate the work the actors put into the game.

      Edit: Also after watching it being acted out, its going to feel weird watching the TLoU movie (whenever that comes out) without the actors from the game.

      • McPoo

        I was thinking that – mainly down to the voices though, as I’ve not seen the reenactment. I associate those characters so strongly with the voices they have, it’ll be weird without them.

        That said, I know who I think would make a good Joel – Dylan McDermott. I watched the second season of American Horror Story at the end of last year, and his character, his build and his voice are all reminded me of Joel:

    So I was checking out the BandaiNamco store to see if there was any games that I want to buy/ preorder. I noticed they dropped digitalriver and went with amazon, when did this happen?

      Unlike S-E, apparently someone up top at Namco must have a brain…

      • futuristic_imagination

        S-E should change it, I don’t want to go through that process again.

    Okay so now their only fixing the issue even though Sneran Kagura BD’s comes out in a day? smh.

    Looks like OVA won’t be included even though that’s actually the reason why i’m buying it since it’s not available in other torrent sites.

    I guess i’ll wait till the end of the year before i purchase this, to see if they’ll issue a new version and all.

    • Elvick

      How do you fuck that up?

  • McPoo

    Valiant Hearts seems pretty good. The music is really lovely. Based on looks and sound alone I’d probably say I prefer it to Child of Light.

    • MrFinalgamer

      The power of Montpellier shines through that game. Although, they should (can’t believe I’m going to say this) stop making 2D Rayman, and focus on, either a new 3D Rayman, or Beyond Good & Evil 2.

      • McPoo

        I’d like another 2D game as I’m not too fussed about either of those. That said I think it’s time for something a little more upbeat :p

        I only played fifteen minutes of VH and it seems quite heavy going >_>

    • Elvick

      I’m waiting to see if it comes to PS Vita before buying it. Unlike Child of Light (which I played on PS3, PS4 and PS Vita), Valiant Hearts looks like something I wouldn’t play multiple times. So I want to play it on my preferred system if possible. If not, PS4 awaits. And it might be on sale by the time I give up on a Vita version. Who knows?

      • McPoo

        I’m sure it’ll be on sale at some point soon. To be honest, £11.99 seemed a little steep (as it did for CoL), but I got given some free XBL credit from a promo so I thought I’d go for it. I knew it was something I wanted, as soon as I saw the trailer I thought it looked ace :p

        I bet both games look ace on the Vita screen though. I kinda want another Vita now >_<

    Much like any other dungeon RPG though… The rolls are brutal, lol. Anything beyond a 6 is considered incredibly rare. It only goes up to 10, but I managed to get a 7 after rerolling for a good 10-15 minutes, so I just settled for that, lol.

    Japanese Government to Start Anti-Anime/Manga Piracy Operation Next Month

    In cooperation with 15 major anime production companies and manga publishers, the Japanese government will next month start a huge extermination operation against 580 foreign sites which have illegally uploaded anime and manga contents on the web without the copyright holders’ permission, NHK reported on July 28. While the government has started supporting the genre as one of their important cultural exports, there appears to be no end of illegal uploading of anime and manga via pirate sites, mainly operated by Chinese. The Cultural Affairs Agency estimates the loss caused by the Chinese pirate sites last year was amounted to at least 560 billion yen (about US$ 5.5 billion).

    On August 1, the government will start simultaneously sending requests to delete illegal anime and manga contents to the operators of the 580 foreign pirate sites which they have found. In addition, the operation will launch a new site to guide the fans to a legitimate site offering some 250 titles including

    the latest ones at a cost of several hundred yen.

      I’m surprise sites like Nyaa, Bakabt managed to survive all these years.

      It’s mainly Chinese sites, but i wonder what will happen now in the coming years.

      Crap so they are after manga reader.

      This thing disgust me as most of those mangas will never get localized and the localized ones can only be bought online from where I live since no more Borders.

      Also there’s anime that will never get localized like Macross who have a roadblock called Harmony Gold.

      This is bad.

                  Doesn’t the sword feed off of blood though…?

                  • 罪罰

                    That’s Shinobi, haha. I think it feed of her soul/life so she would die at the end. Feeding of her blood would be to scary for teens!

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

                      Well, feeding off a soul sounds pretty crazy too though :p

                      I wouldn’t be so sure about the teen rating, lol. I’m still scratching my head, wondering why they rated something like 24: Live Another Day 14+ when we’re usually seeing dudes getting blown away and/or being shot in the face. I imagine the game ratings are going the same way =3=

                    • 罪罰

                      Feeding of her entire being does sound scary but it’s something most people just find peculiar but actually feeding off blood and seeing it gives it a more human element and creates more aggressive reactions. Well, for me.

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

                      Probably because blood can actually be seen, whereas a soul/life force is more of a spiritual/belief sort of thing.

      Meh…DmC was the only game of theirs I’ve ever liked, and supposedly, Capcom handled the combat in that game :/

        I did remember them saying that but they probably focused on the feeling of it rather than the depth.

        • Anime10121

          Yep, still VASTLY prefer the old series, but at the very least, DmC was actually pretty fun to play through, at least over Heavenly Sword/Enslaved…

    Decided to playthrough Valkyria Chronicles, due to my old safe file being on my dead PS3, and I’m still amazed on how good looing this game is. Sega should have usedthe canvas engine more. It just feels like such a big waste, kind of like the hedgehog engine never being used to it fullest.

    • 罪罰

      It is, it is probably the thing that pisses me off about SEGA more than anything. Creating such magnificent engine and just throwing it away when a lot of games could’ve used it. Hell, why don’t they switch Shining Resonance to that engine.

      • PrinceHeir

        I think they did used the engine(just not the canvas style)

        I remember they released a Shining game on PSP with Valkyria Chronicles style of gameplay, same graphics, physic engine and all.

    • Budgiecat

      Jaleco tried something similar with Bonds of Gold (Ougon no Kizuna) RPG for the Wii, but they didn’t do it right (was a screen filter), which had worse results. Also trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll did it wrong too….

    Is anyone here annoyed at how reviewers are giving TLOU remaster the exact same score they gave the original, when it didn’t fixe any issues it had before? They added the DLC and made it prettier, okay? Why didn’t the Wind Waker receive the same score then? It fixed the glaring issues it had before. What about the Halo Anniversary? They completely retooled the game and added a great multiplayer component, yet scores lower. I’d get buttblasted by sonydrones at other sites but come on. They don’t justify anything in the reviews. “It looks pretty! omg photo mode! best gaem xD!”

    What is going on. I’m not hating on the game but this is just ridiculous.
    If you wanna argue that the game still holds up, go check out Tomb Raider, which had a remaster, and scored lower.

    • Samsara09

      double standards my friend,this is hypocrisy… reviews are usually biased like that.
      If any of these games had as much sells as TLOU,they would also receive this V.I.P treatment.

      • 罪罰

        I love the TLOU even if I make fun of it, it’s a very well made game. But it had it’s issues, every game.

        • Samsara09

          well,this is sales based,not quality…and yes,not game is perfect.

            • KingNigma

              The movie’s goal isn’t to offend anyone and the fact that so many are especially those thinking this is an attack on white people prove why a movie like this is necessary.

    Started The Last of Us Remastered today. First game I’ve played in a while (also didn’t play the original release, so brand new for me). Not too far in – had to stop playing ‘cuz my head hurt. But I’m liking it so far. That opening.

      If you like LEGO games, then LEGO City Undercover is great for that. It’s not any better or worse than other LEGO games, so if you don’t like them there’s no real point to playing it. But the writing is great. Loading is atrocious though. :P

      MK8, of course is fun.

      I haven’t put much time into anything else really. NSMBU is alright, not great. Typical 2.5D Mario. Haven’t tried NSLBU yet.

      Haven’t even tried out DKC: Tropical Freeze, or WW HD (got that free with the Club Nintendo MK8 deal~)

          It’s available on PS4, PS3, PC, XBO, and 360. There is also a 3DS version but unlike this, it’s turn-based.

    Started playing Catherine again today over at my friends house with him and his son.

    Def one of the better and more original games of last gen among all the overhyped cinematic set piece BS, moe rpgs, boring sports rehashes and pew pew games…

    • PrinceHeir

      I would put Deadly Premonition, Catherine, Deus Ex HR, Demon/Dark Souls, as one of my favorite original games of last gen.

      Although Deus Ex HR is not an original one. The game definitely felt like the RE4 of this generation. I replayed it soo many times(which i rarely do nowadays), amazing level design, art, character, just needed to add backstory and amazing boss fight and it would have been perfect.

      I only played MGS4 ONCE and never look back.

      But nothing will come at the greatness that is Deadly Premonition. One of the amazing and mind blowing games i have ever played. Don’t care about the frame rate issues(gotten used to it), but the story, characters, and even town is more lively than any GTA game out there. It’s the closest Shenmue game you’ll get unless Sega get off their ass and make the 3rd game with Yu Suzuki.

      • Budgiecat

        no love for Yakuza games or Sleeping Dogs?

        • PrinceHeir

          Forgot about Yakuza! But i feel Deadly Premonition is much closer to Shenmue than Yakuza(both games are still awesome!)

          Only seen Sleeping Dogs and it looks okay. I like the Hong Kong setting though. Very fresh from the typical US cities like New York and LA ‘-___-

    Anyone else not really give a shit if people take selfies?

    I mean, I get the hate for them. With some people taking them ALL THE TIME, and in some stupid situations… but, who cares? People used to take pictures with actual cameras too. You just couldn’t do it with a phone and then upload it online for the “world” to see. You had to develop the film to see if it even turned out good. xD

    I don’t know, seems like people put a little too much effort into complaining about them. When they’re easily ignored. If someone posts a lot, then delete/block/unfollow/whatever them and move on with life.

    Just me? (then again I take selfies so meh~)

    • Budgiecat
      • Elvick

          • Elvick

            heh

    • Ghost Doge

      Far as selfies, don’t give a damn. Let people do whatever the hell they want! Long as no one is trying to take pictures of me, it’s all good. Outside of the mandatory (ID, work-related, yearbook, etc) I don’t do random pictures. There are a few of me floating around from a couple of weddings and some other parties though >.>

      • Elvick

        I don’t tend to like pictures either, but my family lives far away. So I try to post a couple here and there on facebook for them to see I’m still alive. :P

        I really hate people taking my picture, they always come out looking… not like me. : So I hate them. I don’t know. It’s weird. Then again, the posed ones are really just awkward so I act awkward and then… that’s probably why I look derpy in them.

        And come on… I’ve seen your selfies!

        • Ghost Doge

          I just used to take a few pictures here and there of my surroundings then send those back home, occasionally send a picture with a thumbs up. Sent a few other pictures too which were taken by someone else, so there’s that!

          By the way, pro tip on having your pictures taken….. Don’t smile. Ever. Just give the exact same look each time as if you’re dead on the inside. Can’t take a bad picture that way! Alternatively, you can choose to always smile…. Or give the finger…. Whatever the case, long as it’s consistent, it probably won’t be a derp! :D

          Bby, dick pics don’t count! And that’s hardly anything special. I’ve been sendin’ them things err’where! <3

          • Elvick

            Prove it. Send ‘em to me.

            • Ghost Doge

              But you already have ‘em! Remember that one night a few weeks ago?! Don’t tell me you forgot already! With the pineapples and the butter?!

    • McPoo

      I don’t really care, although it annoys me if people stop in the street in front of me to do it, or do it in stupid places.

      The photos themselves don’t bother me though. If you’re taking a selfie in the street though, no matter how good the picture comes out, you look like a bit of a bellend from everyone else’s position.

                      And hell if I know, Never saw that movie personally, though from what I gather, people thought the suit looked terrible and the story was crap.

                      Enslave?! Push posh you dogs crave the attention.

                      The move is not final but the dog is and I’ve had bigger dogs before (freaking mutant rutts who are taller than me when on twos). Need to test out the waters there first if the contract job becomes permanent. That pretty much explains my absence recently.

    Fanboys are really going at each other over this EA subscription thing.

    • McPoo

      I don’t see why, the people that say they don’t like it are the people that own or predominantly play PS4. EA Access isn’t there so there’s no point arguing about it. The people gushing over it are probably making it out to be more than it is, too.

      Personally I subscribed for a month this evening and for me it’s pretty good value. I had been renting Battlefield 4 but thinking about sending it back. This way let’s me send it back and get a new game, plus I’ve been wanting FIFA for a while, and get to try NFL. I doubt I’d stay subscribed permanently, but it seems ideal for dipping in and out of. I do appreciate EA making the yearly sub really cheap though especially for the UK users. I was expecting it to be £10 more than what they’re charging.

      • Six

        Sony’s response as to why it’s not on PS4 is what really kicked off the drama.

        http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2014/07/30/sony-ea-access-doesn_2700_t-represent-good-value-to-the-playstation-gamer.aspx

        “We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect,” a Sony representative told us via email. “PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200% since the launch of PlayStation 4, which shows that gamers are looking for memberships that offer a multitude of services, across various devices, for one low price. We don’t think asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good value to the PlayStation gamer.”

        Love how they tout the 200% uptick in PS+ subscriptions. I wonder why that is…

        Anyway, I don’t see how choice is a bad thing. It’s not like if this takes off all of EA’s games will be subscription only, or the entire industry will move to subscription based models where you’ll need 20 of them to get all the games you want.

        • McPoo

          Yeah the PS Plus stat is so irrelevant it just looks like it was slotted in because it’s a big number.

        That’s not true. The gaming community got Microsoft to scrap their horrible DRM policies for the Xbone.

                      I don’t think that would’ve been good for them, the animations are so robotic. They didn’t have the budget or talent to make a 3rd Person game like that, plus Deus Ex is FPS before anything.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Yeah I noticed that when you took cover vs Dick Marciko taking cover in Rogue Warrior and the MC soldier taking cover in Rainbow Six (all 3 FPS games that have 3rd person cover).

    http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111210011450/gundam/images/8/8e/Amuro_Kamille_Char_Cel_Scan2.jpg

    I would say Kamille or Char can be top 1. I’m still not convinced about Amuro despite being an ace pilot and probably one of the best. He’s still whiny and has some issues, even after 079.

    I did heard he’s much more cooler on Char’s Counterattack so i’ll have to watch it before judging him.

    I also haven’t watched ZZ yet. Judau looks too much like Amuro so i wonder if he’ll act one as well.

    But yeah, It’s either Char or Kamille for now :)

    • Nice Boat

      And Kamille doesn’t have issues? Also CCA Char has a lot of issues. He wants revenge for a person who died over a decade ago

      • PrinceHeir

        Didn’t read it until i saw Char’s Counterattack.

        Uh spoilers buddy. Haven’t watched ZZ yet, though i do wonder what changed his perspective since Zeta he seem cool and much more compose. Especially when talking to Amuro especially what he did to Lalah.

        • LordKaiser

          If you haven’t watched ZZ yet I suggest you start from episode 2 since episode 1 is just a re-telling of Z.

    • Budgiecat

      Judau acts nothing like Amuro

      And “if you hadn’t come up you wouldn’t have died!!” (Gundam vs Zeta Gundam PS2) Kamille is pretty whiny lol

      Still nothing beats “Eweything you do is stoopid!” Puru 2 :P

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQjJCe5CYG0

      • PrinceHeir

        I’m saying he looks like Amuro(to me)

        Even that main character from Unicorn looks like Judau. I don’t know why Tomino and other directors keep putting brown hair characters as lead for the UC.

        Kamille was a breath of fresh air even though he reminded me of Amuro in the first few episodes.

    • LordKaiser

      Kamille was the most angst character of all.

      • PrinceHeir

        He at least get it over quickly compared to Amuro who still had some issues even after 9 years since the One Year War.

        • Budgiecat

          Amuro is pretty chill in Char’s Counterattack.

          It’s Bright’s son who turns out to be a major loser…

          • PrinceHeir

            Man i hope he isn’t as whiny as Katz.

            I’m freaking glad what they did to Katz in the end of Zeta.

            One of my most hated characters ever in history. He was only a brat in 079, but damn he truly became an dumb fucking kid in Zeta.

            I keep face palming whenever he appears in scenes. I wanted to punch my monitor every time this kid speaks up.

            Glad he is no longer with us, and should stay that way for forever.

            Unbelievable that kid is.

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

      Kamille is a bitch though, lol. Who the hell would rate him above Char? At least Amuro matured over the years and got tired of putting up with shit.

  • LordKaiser
    • Budgiecat

      Its a collection of the movie summaries which had some updated animation and some slight story changes I think..

    • PrinceHeir

      I read they removed the last part of Zeta in the end.

      Different music, some scene changes altered or remove.

      No because the beach area got infected with a bacteria and many people got hospitalized.

      • PrinceHeir

        That’s too bad.

        Tbh i don’t really like swimming in the sea or beach. Too many unknown “fluids” that may be floating out there XD

        I prefer indoor swimming, but then again i haven’t been to one in the last 5 years or so.

        • LordKaiser

          If I go to the beach it’s rarely on summer anyways. I used to go more often when I was at University especially when class ends even on winter and in just before summer. like the 1rst week of May.

          In June the beach becomes to crowded and yes there’s lots of urine and other fluids floating around.

    • 罪罰

      No, disgusting 3D bikinis.

    • Ghost Doge

      I only like the beach at night. Nearly empty, for one, and second, the sun and I don’t agree <.<

    • bloodiOS

      Now, what about the front?

      • Ghost Doge

        Probably something illegal T~T

        • bloodiOS

          Also the potential hint of a trap.

          • Ghost Doge

            With them thighs, I don’t know about that, but I’ve learned to steer clear at the slightest doubt >.>

            • bloodiOS

              You sound the kind that would fall prey to the yoga pants prank.

              • Ghost Doge

                Fallen for it quite a few times already <.<

  • PrinceHeir

    This game looks interesting as hell :D

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nwsm9bwZHw

    I just wish they implemented the mechanics to fit third person view mode.

    Even though it has the mode, it still feels like i’m playing a FPS game with the way they walk, jump and all.

    Still the world in this game looks fantastic as hell!!

    I wish we have more Vampire RPG’s like this!

    • z_merquise

      That thumbnail pic though . . .

    • 罪罰

      It’s a really really good game, but broken as hell sometimes.

    • Budgiecat

      Often many first person games usually immediately let you know visually how unnatural the programming is for emulating human walking movement since it feels like you’re a floating or roving camera half the time. Nevermind the camera is usually mounted on the chest of the character instead of their head (so you have to turn your whole body to look from left to right).

      Is one of the reasons I prefer 3rd person view.

      • PrinceHeir

        I agree.

        I think this is also one of the reasons why i never got past Half Life 2’s boat section.

        It seriously giving me head aches and seizures just by driving on it.

        Even Portal 2 from PC, gave me a few head aches every now and then.

        But funny how games like Destiny don’t give me such a hard time.

        I think it’s the physics engine and the way you walk and aim.

        • Budgiecat

          Is why Siren Blood Curse is so underrated and why I avoided Amnesia on PC.

          It’s a 3rd person designed game with a first person view option.

          Usually games that have both are designed the other way around (this is why Fallout 3/NV and CoD MW2 3rd person MP unlocked mode look so damn awkward).

          Siren BC has the camera set as the person’s actual head, so movement feels more natural, you can actually move your head left to right (and see your own shoulders).

          More devs should look into that. I think Arma has an option for that….or an optional head tracking motion head peripheral or something..

          • PrinceHeir

            Awesome!

            I bought the game 2 years ago, i have yet to play it :

            I think MGS made First Person aiming properly. It didn’t feel awkward at all, although you only have a limited moves unless if you play the FPS VR Mission from MGS2 Substance VR mission mode.

        • 罪罰

          Bungie is one of the few that actually render the character instead of just animating hands.

    • Kobracon

      When you do play it, roll a Malkavian.

  • LordKaiser
    • Budgiecat

      “2.82 million copies sold, but most to existing Wii U owners”

      I don’t get why that is unusual. I wasn’t expecting hordes of people rushing out to buy a Wii U just for this game.

      Anyone that was in anticipation clearly already got a Wii U long ago..

      • Elvick

        Right? I mean, MK is popular with a ton of Nintendo fans… and the Wii U has mostly only sold to those people. Only reason MK Wii sold so ungoldy is because Wii Sports brought in a new type of audience that could carry over to Mario Kart.

        Those people are no where near the Wii U. Granted I’m sure MK8 will have some legs, but people buying a Wii U in the future (and MK8) are likely doing it for a multitude of titles. Rather than one that’s been out for awhile.

      • shogunknight

        Lets just hope smash and zelda dont do the same. Nintendo are having a tough time in this HD transition theyve undergone.
        Should have jumped in way earlier

      • McPoo

        I think a lot of people were thinking it would be a system seller. I agree with you though.

    Really digging Yugiri’s theme!

    Kiyohana’s theme is also rather pleasant to listen to~~

    Kinda iffy on Asaka’s theme though… a bit too cheerful for me.

      [EDIT] Never mind, you edited your post.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Never got a response. I e-mailed the guy a few times, too. /=

      I guess we’ll see how the rest of the rumor holds up as new characters are revealed.

  • shogunknight

    Wow, Sony did good this quarter. Hopefully it wont be the last and others would bounce back like them next quarter

    “Sales increased 95.7% year-on-year (an 86% increase on a constant currency basis) to 257.5 billion yen (2,550 million U.S. dollars). This increase was primarily due to the contribution from sales of PS4 hardware which was launched in November 2013, as well as a significant increase in network services revenues accompanying the launch of the PS4. Sales to external customers increased 101% year-on-year.”

    “Operating income of 4.3 billion yen (43 million U.S. dollars) was recorded, compared to an operating loss of 16.4 billion yen in the same quarter of the previous fiscal year. This significant improvement was primarily due to the above-mentioned increase in sales, partially offset by a decrease in PlayStation®3 (“PS3”) software sales”

    3.5m PS3+4 shipped vs 1.1m 360/XB1 in the same quarter.

    0.75M PSV/TV+PSP shipped

    Game division posted 4.3B yen ($42m) opt profit.

    Finance division ($430m opt profit)

    Company as whole posted $260m net profit.

    So…what happened with Auragar? I’ve seen some commotion over at Nova Crystallis.

    • bloodiOS

      Got banned, so now he does his business elsewhere.

    “According to comments from Koei-Tecmo’s CFO, Kenjiro Asano, the current Warriors engine is “dated” when compared to the fine details found in most first person shooters in today’s market. He hinted that developers are devising a new engine to keep up with the ultra-realistic capabilities of the PlayStation 4.”

    Nice.

    I’ll wait.

    Only thing is; why not just use a licensed out 8th gen engine already available?

    • bloodiOS

      Yeah, they should just license UE4 and modify it to fit their style. It will make it easier for multiplatform projects, too.

      • 罪罰

        I haven’t seen a single UE4 game out in the market, it looks very nice indeed but it’s yet to prove itself for everybody to jump ship. Not being negativy nanny but yeah.

                      I remember when he rage exploded on Bloodios for “posting too much” (which Bloodios handled pretty well and calmly), then apologized for it the next day and then the day after, claiming amnesia or something :P
