    The last of us remastered is great. The only difference i noticed though are the 60fps cause even on ps3 it was gorgeous.

    Digimon Game Updates

    “Digimon All-Star Rumble” was announced for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and is coming to North America and Europe this fall. Japanese developer Prope is making it. Details here: http://gematsu.com/2014/07/digimon-star-rumble-announced-ps3-xbox-360

    “Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth” for PS Vita received a new trailer showing lots of gameplay scenes. Watch here: http://gematsu.com/2014/08/digimon-story-cyber-sleuth-two-minute-trailer

    • BlueCereal

      Cool, I watched the original like over ten years ago.

    • MrFinalgamer

      The moment I saw the “High School Days” part, I immediately thought of School Days…sure hope this doesn’t involve boats!

      And thiking about it, how is this thing going to be called? It can’t be Adventure 2, since that’s already a thing…

    • OverlordZetta

      Still praying Shoutmon gets into Cyber Sleuth…

    • Willgaea

      I thought they were remaking Digimon World. :P Even though that’s what I wanted to hear, this is great news too.

  • Azuardo

    This week I beat Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty on PS4. It has quite a lot of bugs in it lol. Here’s one I recorded: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm2BsNIXeIw
    Slogs got trapped in the electric fence, which should have exploded them to bits. That’s just one of the many bugs in this game. Love it, though.

    I also played tons of Shantae: Risky’s Revenge on Steam. Super fun game but too short and easy. Sadly, I lost all my save data by pressing Alt+F4 before the final dungeon -___- Yep, that command erases all data in this game, apparently. I couldn’t believe it. But I can’t wait for the next two Shantae games now.

    Next, I shall be starting BlazBlue: CP.

    • Elvick

      They released a patch yesterday or today for it.

      • Azuardo

        Yup, just installed it now. I wonder if they managed to get everything.

        • Elvick

          I don’t know, I didn’t read the patch notes. :P I just know they released a patch. :3

          • Azuardo

            Just had a read… Fixed major crashes, but lesser bugs fixing next week. Then more after that, I believe. Seems to be a bit too many for them to gather into just one patch right now lol. Can’t say I’m happy a game is released so buggy like this, but it was mostly playable. And I love Abe anyway… Really want an Exoddus remake, so hope they get the sales needed. Live and learn, etc.

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    I beat Ninja Gaiden Sigma!! Took me about 19 hours, but it was well worth it. That feeling of accomplishment after beating a game you thought on numerous occasions you’d never finish is so great.
    Though that final boss was pretty underwhelming in my opinion. The hardest boss battle, though, was by far the camera :P
    I think I’m pretty much done with gaming for the summer months… I need to catch up on some TV now before all the new seasons begin.

      “Near Future”, “Kingdom Hearts 3″. LOL

      In all seriousness, I would personally add Type-0 HD, alongside the Ratchet 1 remake.

    • Samsara09

      I am with you in 1,2,4,5 and 8…I wish I could be 7,but well,that I can’t.
      Calling KH3 near future is a stretch…well,if near future is 3 years or so to you,then that’s fine.

      also,add Type 0 to your list.It’s supposedly superb.I hope so…considering I am gonna get a PS4 earlier then expected because of it.

    One of the funniest things I’ve seen all week! Can’t wait to get my Blu-Ray and VHS!

  • Martian Wong

    Can someone tell me why SQEX treats FFXIV a new game and show it in almost every convention but refuse to show FFXV?

    • Charlie

      I don’t know, but “please be excited!”

      • Martian Wong

        Please be excited for what?

        • Charlie

          I was quoting Square Enix lol.

          • Martian Wong

            Sigh, I am hoping TGS will not be disappointing.

            • Charlie

              You and me both!

      • Lelouch Vi Britannia

        Ya mean “Prease be excited”

    • 罪罰

      because they want to show their newest additions?

    • Samsara09

      XIV is their last original game…really.Once KH:2.5 remix releases,they won’t have any other project for PS3…There is Type zero too,and I imagine it will be releasing by next year.And there goes their last plan for PS4 before XV and KH3.

      they walked themselves to a corner…and considering the amount of resources and personal they are putting in XV and KH3,they probably can’t work in another big original project.

      So,they are using XIV as a smokescreen,to buy them time for XV….Honestly,their struggle is pitiful.They had 8 years,even if the first three don’t count and 2 or so were somewhat scraped.

      They need to have more faith in their product,and if push comes to shove,the will to make compromises.No perfect game exists,no game is made as exactly as the developers want.Even XV must obey this absolute rule.

    • dark-kyon

      because FFXV is vaporware.i expect type 0 hd in 2015 and the downgraded FFVX in late 2016 or early 2017.

      • Elvick

        You can’t say it’s vapourware then say you expect it at some point. That’s not vapourware.

        • Willgaea

          I don’t think they know what vaporware is.

    • Pekola

      I know, right? We’re constantly shown news of XIV and patch updates. XV? not even a whimper.

    • Willgaea

      Because FF15 is their baby that they believe will outsell FF7.

    • Bart Fatima

      I have no clue!!

    @zerorpg:disqus

    @salromano:disqus

    I’ve been seeing my comments on my disqus page that my comments are marked as spam throughout the articles(It’s not even the same comment)

    My Samurai Warriors 4 comment is nowhere to be seen even though it appears in my disqus page but not on the article

    Unless some asshole is spamming the shit out of me. Can you do anything about it?

    It’s only happening in Gematsu. I’m perfectly fine in other sites.

  • PrinceHeir

    Can anyone see this comment?

  • Samsara09

    Hey,mister/miss PrinceHeir,looks like Disqus is in love with you.I saw your comment and well,I am not seeing it now.
    This is curious.Such a feature would be highly useful to deal with spammers…but well,you aren’t one.One of those “new users” probably trolled you.

    • PrinceHeir

      You probably won’t see this comment(i hope you do)

      I do wonder what’s up with that? It’s not like i offended anyone here or anything O__O

    • Samsara09

      I saw your other post too!Well,if I refresh my page,I no longer will,I suppose.I also can’t respond it.This works too well with spammers.

      Well,It could be an accident…but this never happened to me,so it’s highly unlikely.Maybe they flagged you for spam here in gematsu,and disqus is automatically deleting your posts?Well,you did say you could post in other sites,if I remember right…

      Go ask the mods for help.

      • PrinceHeir

        Wow even though i already logged out of disqus page, i’m still signed here at Gematsu.

        I wish i could log in my other profile so i can respond to you.

        It seems it’s either a glitch or someone must really been wasting their time flagging my comment everywhere i go.

      • Samsara09

        It’s highly unlikely.If it were a glitch,you shouldn’t be able to post in other pages.

        Well,if some people banned for misconduct are immature enough to make alternate accounts just to come back here and troll…I find it highly likely that someone is also capable of pulling this off.

        • LordKaiser

          But that don’t make sense. He posted just now a reply here and it just dissapeared. i saw his reply.

        • PrinceHeir

          The reason why i think is a glitch because i’m already signed out from Disqus page.

          And i’m still here! I even tried to log out here but no dice.

          And LordKaiser’s comment also disappeared.

          I already contacted Disqus themselves about this issue so i’ll just have to wait for a response.

        • Samsara09

          Well,get away from me,sho sho sho,both you and mister Kaiser.I don’t want to get this shit too.

          Just kidding.So,it really was a glitch?It would explain why this happened with Lord Kaiser too…Oh well,food for thought.I shouldn’t be so pessimist.

          • PrinceHeir

            That’s horrible of you T__T

          • Willgaea

            … Put the drink down :o

            • Samsara09

              hahahahahahaha,only shit I drink is milk and yogurt,alongside some juices.

      • LordKaiser

        But won’t it say something like “This post awaits moderation” ?

    • LordKaiser

      WTF!!!! his posts just disappeared just now!

  • Samsara09

    I was replying to my lord pal,and his/her post vanished.Did you delete the post?

    • LordKaiser

      I think someone compromised admin access or something. Better get this at @salromano:disqus

    • Samsara09

      Congratulations,Lord Kaiser,you just got this shit too.It’s contagious,lol.This is the second time it happened,and the second I tried to reply to you…”You cannot reply to a post that is not active”.What the hell is this?

  • LordKaiser

    I get damn orange errors if I try to reply to Prince.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      This error is just posting the same comment twice in one article. Disqus won’t allow that for some reason.

      • LordKaiser

        The thing is that the 1srst time it game me a error about the post don’t be there.

  • Samsara09

    And if I reply to you,lordKaiser,I get this shit too :””You cannot reply to a post that is not active”…

    what does it mean for a post to be active?

    • LordKaiser

      No idea but I got that too. If you try again you get the same error as me.

    • Samsara09

      contact @salromano:disqus?How the hell do I do this?

      • LordKaiser

        Dunno anyway Prince should log off and in to see if the problem goes away.

      • Samsara09

        he said he already pulled this off…and it didn’t work,he is supposedly still “logged”.So,it is probably a glitch.

        • LordKaiser

          Your reply appears to yourself instead of below of me.

        • Samsara09

          Well,it’s because I can’t reply directly to you.Well,this is an interesting glitch,though.Fascinating.And lol,once this shit’s over,our “ghost talk” will be registered here,at least my posts,I suppose.

          • Samsara09

            and lol,I told you it’s no use.You can post and reply to other posts,but it will soon vanish the moment the page is refreshed.

            Also,it’s not possible to reply to you.So,”naturally”,you shouldn’t be able to edit posts.

            • Willgaea

              HAHA I thought Sasara09 was replying to their own comments. Didn’t know their is a bug going around.

              • Samsara09

                Ghost talk,pal.

  • LordKaiser

    Another error if I try to edit a message….. -_-

  • LordKaiser

    i will post in the other threads and see. If not it’s just Open Forum #107

  • PrinceHeir

    Lol it seems this is also happening in other sites(dualshockers etc)

    So it is definitely in the disqus system itself.

    Oh well, i’m glad i’m not the only one experiencing this(well it still sucks for Kaiser and me T__T)

  • Samsara09

    wait till tommorow.I really wanna stop with ghost talk,lol.I could really be accused of spamming.So,it did happen with other pages.Well,that’s great.It’s really a glitch.Weird.i can post just fine.

    Did you guys google it?I doubt you are the first.

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

    Who’s getting Diablo 3 UEE?

    • Unretributed

      Me!

    • Kobracon

      Already bought the expansion when it came out and bought D3 when it first launched, so I don’t really need to

    • Willgaea

      I think I hit to much to play that game anymore.

    • Gustavo Rosario

      I never bought it…is it worth it?

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

        For me ya cause you get Diablo 3 and the expansion plus there’s lots of PS4 features. It’s not out till till 19th

  • Sirichanh

    I scratched my vita screen :/
    I’m tempted to sell it for $60 and get another new one. Or is that stupid? Haha

    • new_tradition

      If it was me, I’d cringe but live with it. The system is otherwise in perfect working order, right?

      Sometimes a screen protector can hide scratches. Try that?

      • Sirichanh

        Yeah it’s still working fine, do you know any screen protectors that would hide it?

        • Wolf Star

          Did you even buy a screen protector for you vita?? Just asking.

          • Sirichanh

            Nope! I never thought I would need one. I’m super careful with my stuff. My brother was the one who scratched it btw.

        • new_tradition

          Sorry, nothing off the top of my head. I actually don’t own a Vita yet (almost wanted to say sell me yours if you only wanted 60 for it, lol >3>).

          But I got a scratch on an old smartphone, and using a screen protector pretty much hid it. I can’t even remember where it was…

          I guess you can’t go wrong with name brand ones or official ones if you have the money.

          Personally I’ve bought a bunch of cheap ones off eBay for my devices. More of a placebo affect for me, but they work well enough.

    • Samsara09

      keep it.If you lived in my country,where it costs a small fortune,lol,you would keep it.

    • MrFinalgamer

      No offense, but selling something that costs $200, for $60, is downright stupid. Especially, if the only thing wrong is a scratch.

      • Sirichanh

        But I don’t like scratches :/

    • Elvick

      Throw it against a wall. *trollface*

      I’ve lived with a nick on my screen for years now. It bugs me eternally, but not enough to spend money on a new Vita. Especially since the OLED model is no longer standard… I don’t want a 2000. Bleh.

    • Sky

      At first i was like “DAAAAAMN” LOL.. That really sucks to get it that scratched up. Mines got scratch too. Well, the backside. :p

    • Akari Akaza

      That’s a hard scratch not even a light scratch….0_0 How did you get that? did you drop it? now that is bothersome playing in a dark environment you going to see a rainbow lining.

      • Sirichanh

        My brother said our cousin did it. Threw a book bag on it and it somehow it made a scratch like that. Actually there is no rainbow lining when I play. Happy me.

    • Ping92

      It’s just a scratch, just live with it, unless you are selling it to me hehe

    • Kobracon

      Hi

  • Kobracon

    @new_tradition:disqus

    About your questions about Ronan in the last OP, Ronan is actually another Cosmic Marvel hero called Ronan the Accuser. He has this magic/mechanical hammer that he uses to judge the guilty. It is pretty darn strong. We will probably see him in more cosmic movies now that they’ve introduced him, but he ain’t no push over thats for sure.

    • new_tradition

      Thanks for the response ^^

      But I’m surprised he’s a hero. The movie made him waaaay different O.O

      • Kobracon

        Just saw the show. LOVED IT! Interesting liberties they took with Drax and made him pretty enjoyable. My only gripe is Gamorrah. She is a MUCH stronger woman than that in the comics.

        Also holy crap I see what you mean by Ronan. He is a fanatical judge, jury and executioner but geez. Actually the first time Gamora was (re)introduced was in a Ronan comic book. They had a pretty big fight.

        http://31.media.tumblr.com/bc494e2d422437613532672d7eeb027e/tumblr_mr6gjniXYx1qbuewbo1_1280.png

        • new_tradition

          What liberties with Drax? Was he a lot more brutal?

          I kind of suspected while the MCU movies will continue to be enjoyable, the Disney influence will eventually work their way into making things more kid-friendly.

          (or at least subtler; that black light joke was genius and hilarious xD)

          • Kobracon

            Hes about as brutal but he was also hella more serious. He was the silent badass type that you could rely on to take care of the situation. Also he’s suppose to be a normal human that was abducted and experimented on to become the bane of Thanos. He was engineered with the sole purpose embedded in his being to KILL Thanos.

            Also his daughter’s name isn’t Camaria, its Heather Douglas or Moondragon.

            http://shehulk.sliverofice.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/moondragon.jpg

            But I doubt they’ll go that far in the cosmic Marvel-verse so I they had to change that.

            • new_tradition

              Dat creative license xD

              I won’t lie, I’m not bothered by such drastic changes to characters since I wasn’t even aware of the GotG. I think enough people are fine with the movie narrative being it’s own thing (although I know some comic oneshots or something were created as movie tie-in; I know there’s at least one for Thor…)

              But strangely enough, I swear I’ve heard of Moondragon before O.o

        • Gustavo Rosario

          To be fair Drax is constantly changing in the comics as well. I noticed that different writers give him different personalities but he’s always a badass.

          • Kobracon

            True. As I said earlier, I did find this Drax really funny, I’m just more used to the badass serious one that had to take care of an annoying human girl.

      • Gustavo Rosario

        Ronan was never really a hero. Ronan does what he thinks is right.

  • Pekola

    All this TLOU hype.

    I’m not sure what to say.

    • 罪罰

      photo mode xD! omg tumblr time!

    • Sky

      All that hype goes straight into that 60fps & 1080p graphics. Besides that, I would definitely buy the game again for that very reason. At least the MP looks a lot smoother than the ps3 version.

  • Elvick

    Woooooo, The Last of Us Remastered got here way early~

  • pixxxelz

    So I’m about to start playing demon souls (creating my character right now) since I’m a total noob at this I gotta ask which class is best?

    • http://freelansations.tumblr.com/ Thomas James

      Been a long while since I’ve played Demon’s Souls and even then, I’m way more familiar with Dark Souls, but generally speaking, I’d say class isn’t super important for your first run. What you’ll want to focus on more is speccing to best take advantage of whichever weapons you really enjoy and things are flexible enough with the starting classes that you can pick a “less ideal” class for a given weapon and still have it pan out okay with persistence.

      A lot of people when they first play the games start multiple new throwaway characters and mess around with the controls of different classes in the starting area to get a feel for different weapon types before deciding which way to go, so that might be an option worth considering for you.

      That being said, from what I’ve seen, I believe the Royal is considered (relatively) easy mode because of what they get starting off, but if you’re new to Souls games in general, I think that’s mostly inconsequential. Hope that helps! :)

      • pixxxelz

        Yes it does, thanks :)

    • 罪罰

      *hooks up ps3*
      *pops demon souls*

      I’ll be waiting.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Online still acive?

        • http://freelansations.tumblr.com/ Thomas James

          Yep! Atlus USA has renewed it more or less indefinitely for as long as the community shows interest. Definitely still a hardcore PVP presence at least.

          • MrFinalgamer

            Huh, thats nice. Last time I playd, they were saying, that they were shittung down the servers, I’m definitely gonna play some soon, then. Thanks!

              There were a few scares, but yeah, the last time they had an update on the matter, I think it was to say that they had no time limit going for how long they were willing to keep it up. I know that I definitely watched an LP that was recorded just several months ago and there were definitely PVP and coop stuff going at least.

          • Elvick

            Which is why I don’t want to get back into it and give it a second chance. lol :p

    Some of you here will probably be into this: when I’m either not working for Sal on the latest word on Kiseki/waifu games or getting paid by other nice people to tell them what all the Japanese squigglies mean in English, I do a bunch of personal translation projects on the side. They’re mostly game-related and focus a lot on ground less covered; think developer blog translations and whatnot.

    Anyway, one of the big releases this week is an interview I scanlated between the official Persona Magazine and Shigenori Soejima, whose work you probably best recognize in the character designs for P3 and P4. You can find it here: http://pepsimangb.tumblr.com/post/93529585129/alrighty-so-heres-that-persona-magazine It focuses on his design work for Persona Q since that game came out a little while back in Japan and it’s a neat read; you’ll probably get the most out of it if you’re an artist yourself, but speaking as a non-artist myself, I’d say it’s a pretty fun time. I tried to retain the original text layout as much as possible to give people a fun look at Japanese magazine design in something not in Japanese, so at the very least, hopefully it’s pretty!

    If that sounds like your jam, check it out and if you like what you see, go sniffing around the translations tab on my Tumblr to see what other craziness I get up to. I keep meaning to share more of my work with you guys since there’s a lot of overlap with this audience and what my own followers are into, but this was especially a passion project of mine, so I just had to make sure to share it here. :)

    I think a handful of you have been having issues with comments disappearing on here this evening. I know at least one of you messaged me directly, but, of course, it disappeared while I was out on an errand, so apologies to whoever that was. Anyway, so far as I can tell, this isn’t a security issue; our comments use Disqus technology, which I believe is handled off-site by Disqus proper, so it’s likely an issue on their end. Beyond the usual “log out, log back in, and set your house on fire when that doesn’t work,” if you’re experiencing this issue, please email Sal at: editor@gematsu.com and describe in as much detail as you can what you’re experiencing. Unlike me, he has actual technical chops, obviously, so if anyone can figure this out he can.

    Apologies for the inconvenience! Hopefully we’ll get this sorted out soon so we can have completely smooth weekend chatting going. :)

    • LordKaiser

      Thanks james.

      • http://freelansations.tumblr.com/ Thomas James

        It was you! Sorry I couldn’t get back to you sooner and I wish I could help more. Sal is likely gone for the night, but since it isn’t so easy to find his email, I thought I should at least post that much for people like you having issues.

        Thanks for your patience and hopefully we’ll get this sorted out soon. :D!

        In the meantime, have a free image from my personal collection I got somewhere on the Internet!

        • LordKaiser

          I sent him a e-mail

        • Elvick

      • Samsara09

        lol

  • bloodiOS

    Just switched to Time Warner Cable since they offer a better internet deal at where I live. While it isn’t all that great but browsing the net feels smoother now at 15Mbps (the actual speed actually goes up to 16Mbps), and I certainly have a much easier time streaming 60fps YouTube videos now. Quite a transformative experience (at least that’s how I personally feel) when compared to Windstream’s 7Mbps package (where the actual downstream speed varies between 5-6Mbps.)

    • Ghost Doge

      Aw yiss. Upload all the p—…. Research!

      • bloodiOS

        Err… upstream is still 1Mbps ;P

        • Ghost Doge

          You got ripped off >.>

          • bloodiOS

            *LOL* All I ever care about is the downstream. It’s actually quite funny because the difference between standard and basic package is only $5, even though basic package only have 3Mbps for downstream ;P

            That said, I kinda wish my state was included in TWC’s plan to boost the speed of the standard package from 15 to 50Mbps, which already happened in other states where the competitions are more competitive.

            • Ghost Doge

              I feel ya. At least I hope it’s not all too expensive. When I was in Italy, there was only one provider for our location, and they got to charge whatever they wanted for absolutely shit service. $120 a month for ~4 down/1 up. Still getting away with it last I checked.

              • bloodiOS

                I think $34.99 is pretty affordable. I could be cheap and go for the lowest one at $14.99 for 2D/1U but I don’t think I would want that.

                • Pekola

                  I pay around 34.99$ for internet that hardly even comes close to 2Mbps.

                  It’s such a rip-off. But where I live, I see no other options.

    • LordKaiser

      Warner and Verizon… The only ones that accept the internet route /25 and can access PSO2…… See if pso2.jp loads.

      • bloodiOS

        Yeah, it does.

        • LordKaiser

          I see… Well then know that you’re one of the few lucky that can play PSO2 even if you don’t want or care too…

  • bloodiOS

    Just checked out a footage from the β of The Crew and… honestly, I’m not impressed. While the scale of the world is impressively big, the graphics isn’t anything special. Even when the car is going past 200kmph, I couldn’t really feel the sense of speed (and the engine sound really isn’t very appealing either.) The gameplay itself also doesn’t seem fun (to me) either. Maybe the final product will be different but all in all, this footage really doesn’t seem very appealing…

      Personally, I’m not a huge fan of open world racers. I mean, they’re fine every now and then, but I’ve had my fill for awhile with NFS: Most Wanted on Vita.

    • shogunknight

      Honestly, i just want a new burnout. A simple arcade racing game with at least 2P local multiplayer option, like burnout or nfs most wanted. Ive been playing asphalt 8 and it would be fun to play something like that on console

      EDIT: WITHOUT the damn microtransactions!!

    • Ghost Doge

      I’m more than likely buying that game soon as it comes out only for the sake of racing with my best friend and dicking around. That said, getting chased around by the cops is most of the reason why I’m still in love with the original NFS Most Wanted and also why I’ve been disappointed with most open world racing games ever since. And I just watched the dude blast past at least two officers going 200Kmph and they didn’t even react. Definitely hope that’s fixed (or only turned off for the sake of the video) because if it’s gonna be like the 2012 Most Wanted again….. Hype deflating.

      I used to have that kind of issue back then.

  • z_merquise

    I just finished the whole series of Gurren Lagann. I really, really love it!

    I always thought that it’s just going to be just a slapstick action-adventure mecha series but it did had a good, well-written story and nice character development besides the over-the-top action. And the action just getting more and more ridiculous (in a very good way) towards the end. It surely is epic!

    ROW ROW! FIGHT DA POWAH!!

    • Kuro-Law

      Gurren Lagann >>> Kill la Kill
      Always.

      • z_merquise

        I enjoyed Kill la Kill and it’s that show what made me finally decided to watch Gurren Lagann.

        If I compare them, yeah, I love the story in Gurren Lagann more and how it develop from just a simple adventure to more grand and epic. I also love how every characters, even the minor supporting casts, are well-developed and likable.

        I like both shows for their over-the-top action and humor (especially for Kill la Kill) but in terms of storytelling and character development, Gurren Lagann is better.

        • Kuro-Law

          Yes pretty much the same for me.
          One thing that really bugged me was that they couldnt get the right balance of seriousness and comedy down like GL did. When KLK tried I didnt know whether I could take the show seriously or not. Maybe that was just me :P

      • Anime10121

        It is…,but that doesnt make Kill la Kill any less great either :P

        They’re both great shows :D

        • Kuro-Law

          I can’t speak of how great KLK is cause I didnt think it was very good. It was definitely better than most animes coming out at the time but I just couldnt get into it even though I really wanted to like it more.
          It had a killer soundtrack, great characters and some pimpin fight scenes.

          • Kobracon

            To me, its entirely unfair to compare it to TTGL coz they had SUCH a low budget for KlK. Its amazing it looked as good as it did and in general its just hard to top TTGL.

            I loved KlK for what it was and being totally non-serious

    • Kobracon

      Welcome to enlightenment, brother. Its never too late to watch the whole of Gurren Lagann. Now have you watched the two movies? Gurren-Hen and Lagann-Hen? Coz if you haven’t you have to get on that NOW!

  • Kuro-Law

    I think im the only one kind of at awe at the 2015 releases.

  • Sky

    Finished watching episode 4 of Zankyou no Terror (Terror in Resonance). That was a very enjoyable episode. I couldn’t help but replay the scene where Lisa & Twelve riding on that motorcycle while music was playing. That scene alone felt SOOO awesome! Damn, totally a good anime. I think Twelve is personally my favorite character.

    • Fainaru Luna

      Yeah Zankyou no Terror is quite refreshing anime this season, plus it has Shinichiro Watanabe and Yoko Kanno on board!

    • 罪罰

      I really love it.

  • HassanJamal

    Barakamon is a fantastic anime. Not much girl moe loli crap and no lets save the world teen BS.

    • new_tradition

      I’ve been meaning to watch it. I keep missing a lot of these slice of life shows while they’re current.

      Beyond not having those things, how are you enjoying the show itself?

      • HassanJamal

        The characters are pretty interesting and the interactions between the MC and the villagers are most of the time hilarious but also pretty heartwarming at times. The animation is also to be noted pretty good.

        Another show that comes to mind is gekkan shoujo nozaki-kun. While its no Nichijou or Daily Lives of highschool boys, its pretty funny thanks to the characters and how the mangaka is super focused on his manga and nothing else.

        • new_tradition

          Oooh, sounds good. I also heard about the other one. I thought it might focus too much on romance, but if there’s other things going for it, I guess I could check it out too…

          Thanks for the feedback ^^

          • HassanJamal

            No problem, the Nozaki one, there are hints of romance but the main thing it has are the cast and comedic interactions between em. Favorite character has to be Seo.

    Latest episode of Sailor Moon Crystal was pretty great. Though like the other episodes, some of the art is just not right. Why… why can’t it be perfect? D:

    I still really enjoy Crystal, but they really need to get the art down. It’s annoying.

    • Samsara09

      nothing is perfect.
      when this is over i am gonna see it all.

      • Elvick

        There are countless animes that don’t have fucked up symmetry on the eyes. Rei looked really bad at times.

  • McPoo

    Just finished Valiant Hearts: The Great War. What an ending. Even though you can tell what’s coming up, it doesn’t make it any less sad.

    That was an excellent game. I thought the gameplay itself would get stale but it was actually pretty good the whole way through. The story, visuals and music were top notch though, well worth playing.

    There’s also a lot to learn about World War 1, if you read the info about the battles and historical items and stuff.

    • new_tradition

      How long did it take you to finish?

      • McPoo

        I’m not sure tbh, maybe 6 hours? It definitely felt like there was a lot there though.

    Just started playing Bioshock Infinite after completing both 1 and 2 and god… Where the hell was Square Enix when they made this game? Infinite looks like a game that Square should have made but with jrpg aspects.

    Shame on you Square, the beauty of infinite gave me the same impression as playing the beautiful FFX when it came out.

    If bioshock team decides to make a rpg game using infinites engine or upgraded one for the PS4 then Square will be kicked in the balls.

    The first choice is my personal favorite. Been missing out on some good PSP games.

    • 罪罰

      because they have a lot of text or something like that according to XSEED.

    • Ping92

      large script for the games and also probably the lack of manpower to translate. the chinese versions were translated a lot faster.
      sen no kiseki 2 chinese/korean versions are also getting same day release as the japanese versions

    • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

      The game has tons of text. Reading alone took me 100 hrs, another 30 was gameplay. XSEED are working hard on the second one, so it’ll be quite a while until they reached Zero/Ao assuming they did decided to continue to work on the series that is.

      I like this new opening of Sen II

    Hey, guys.

    So just seeing these reply errors everyone’s mentioning. Before I go ahead and contact Disqus, because this isn’t an issue I can really do anything about, is this something that’s still occurring? Or did the issue fix itself?

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      I was just looking. From what I can tell, someone was mass flagging comments, perhaps on multiple IP’s which was finally marking comments as spam. Which was making them vanish.

      As for the reply errors, it could have been Disqus lagging, which happened before, or some glitch associated with comments getting mass flagged, which was resulting in some kind of error when someone tried to reply to them.

      I think the issue has been fixed, I just started digging into the comments and approving a ton of comments that were removed.

      I could be wrong though. Hopefully, people will reply to our comments or contact one of us if some kind of problem is still occurring.

      • LordKaiser

        It almost seemed like Prince Heir was the only one then they got to me. I hope it was just a Discuss error and no someone malicious. I don’t remember angering someone these days thought.

      • PrinceHeir

        The reply glitch was very weird though.

        @Sansara:disqus was the only one replying and talking to himself when you read yesterday XD

        Oh my god!I was right!?Some piece of shit really did mass flag poor mister/miss PrinceHeir….I am kind of sad that someone capable of such a silly thing exists.I am a little happy my hypothesis was right though…

    • PrinceHeir

      It seems my comments are no longer marked as spam on my disqus page ^^

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      So it seems the issue fixed itself then?

      • Ghost Doge

        It would appear so. Must’ve just been lag with a vengeance as Bloodios said.

      • PrinceHeir

        It’s still happening to me in other sites so i contacted the moderators of those as well.

        I already sent Disqus a message yesterday. I’ll wait till next week till they fix this.

    I need some buyers help guys T^T,

    today I finally got my check in and after dealing with other things i have $252 left and i was wondering what games i should get?

    So far im going to pre-order Senran Kagura SV and Freedom Wars which practically will leave me around $160 at best. So i was wondering is there any Vita or PS3 games you guys would recommend?

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

                  I can. SAO is more popular, simple as that.

                  • Anime10121

                    Is it really though, I mean most anime outside of DBZ/Naruto could only sell a fraction of even the most niche game releases in the west…

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

                      Yeah… Pretty sure SAO is more popular than GE2, lol. It’s sad, but SAO is more popular than God Eater in Japan, so it’s obviously going to be more popular in North America as well (where God Eater has less exposure even).

    • Akari Akaza

      Akiba’s Trip you going to have a blast with this one. An for imports if your into dark stories I recommend Corpse Party Blood Drive I have it with me….^_^ I understand Japanese mild.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Bioshock 2, and Infinite. They cost approx. $20, and Infinite includes the first game, so you essentially get the whole series.. 2 brilliant games, and (from what I’ve heard) a pretty good sequel, nothing wrong with that!

      • kirby755

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

      Hmmm… That’s strange. I had to check, but they never did come out with one. Odd.

      It has certainly reached enough sales for one.

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

        Ya I want the Japanese voices so I’ll be importing, even the Asian version is in English

    • MrFinalgamer

      Odd, I thought the game already had one. I think even Gravity Rush has one, and that didn’t sell the same as P4G.

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

    I’m probably the only one but The Last of Us pace is too slow, makes me fall asleep

    • Anime10121

      Its supposed to be slow…its survival horror…

      But either way, I agree, it was a well built game, but I was also bored a lot playing it…

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

        I actually didn’t research the game at all and just gave Sony my money cause of the hype then said wut

        • Anime10121

          Lol, I know dat feel…

          But I learned a long while ago never to buy a game solely on hype alone. I waited until I could get it for half price and only then did it feel kinda worth it to me.

        • Budgiecat

          I had more fun playing Sony’s other PS3 survival horror game – Siren Blood Curse..

    • Elvick

      It’s perfect IMO.

      • Budgiecat

        I’m perfect

    • MrFinalgamer

      Never did I feel bored, when playing the game. The pace is really good, and every time it stops, it helps you take a breather, after each confrontation with humans, or infected, not to mention, it adds a lot to the characters, with how they play off each other, and see how different everything is now.

    I think people already know this. Still it just shows you that things like this can happen in real life even in Japan.

    I’ve watched the BD’s, and it’s actually more gruesome there being uncensored and all.

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

      They did something similar with Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 as well. I believe they delayed the Blu-ray release because it was around the time that Japan was going through a rough time. I remember IREM did the same thing with Disaster Report 4, which was a damn shame.

      They could still release the game now, but it was just flat out cancelled out of respect for Japan dealing with the earthquake.

          I wonder if it was on account of “Seven” and he hasn’t realized that guy got banned….

        Amazing game.

        If your saying you saw me on a Castlevania forum. The only sites i registered is Andriasang, Gematsu, H-Rules(guess what this is XD), Japanator, Tomopop, Destructoid, Gamespot(under Foxhound1013) and Siliconera(ugh) and that’s probably it.

        I do remember i used to visit a Castlevania site as an anon called Chapel of Resonance

    • Anime10121

      God how I love X-2 Rikku’s design! And its not just cause she’s half nekkid (you cant even see much skin in this one), but just the part shown in this image is REALLY well done! I love her hair, the arm bandages, the half gloves, Rikku’s design is just amazomsauce!

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

    Aldnoah Zero is really good so far

  • bloodiOS

    The thought of Hana Hook writing a normal story is so weird… my mind strongly associates her with the Hahaoya Shikkaku series and almost doesn’t want to accept that she can come up with something as pleasant as Bamora! (under the name Osada Yoshimi.)

  • Martian Wong

    Have you ever just youtube a game and watch all the cutscene so you dont have to buy a game? Either you just want to know the story or on a tight budget?

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

      Did that with MGS before to catch up before 4

      • Martian Wong

        I tried that with Assassin Creed. The story is so complicated and it is on so many different consoles.

      • Anime10121

        You watched all the codec calls too?

    • Ghost Doge

      Not quite, though I have watched a friend play games on YouTube because I either didn’t have access to my consoles or just didn’t have the game yet.

    • PrinceHeir

      I watched Bioshock Infinite Ending without any walkthroughs and wtf indeed.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Well…playing the game itself, still gives you a bit of a WTF, but I can’t imagine seeing it, without any sort of context…

      It basically made apparent the fact that Yuna Rikku and Paine were only friends due to the circumstances that pushed them towards a common goal. After all the time they spent together they realized that they didnt really know each other, and as adults it’d be hard to spend that time when all of them had separate paths to follow. I mean they left not hating or disliking each other, but with the realization that they were not as good or tight a friendship as they initially thought they were.

      It may be realistic…but hot damn if that didnt hit me in the feels :(

      • Samsara09

        well,it’s fact that when you are surrounded by opposition, you are forced to work together with some people to get off alive,this forces people to become quick friends or conrades.Hell,even with people you hate you grow to like…or you are forced to like.This is a fine way of growing to respect someone,lol.

        Of course,such a bond tends to be frail…because once the common cause vanishes,they break up,just like in here.In some cases,not.The respect you have for the other person can go for years to come…hell,even til death.

        I saw it,and I don’t think it was so melancholic as you say.I think they realized this,and that even if they couldn’t be together,they shouldn’t forget the memories nor their bonds…

        It is realistic though…But in real life,it’s actually worse.For instance,school.How many of your colleges from school you still have contact with?I only have two or three.People not only forget their bonds,but they even forget they knew you.

              Very long story short, the MC cheats on a “pregnant” girl, and she gets pissed (and it’s pretty dumb, since their relationship started, because she wanted him to cheat on his girlfriend, but whatevs.), and stabs the fucker to death. When the girlfriend sees this, she goes full psycho mode, and contacts pregnant girl to meet up on the school rooftop.

              Pissed that she killed her boyfriend, girlfriend stabs pregnant girl, only to see that there’s no baby. In the end, we see psycho girl, with a bag, in a boat, and this bag contains MC’s head.

              Here it is on video format, if interested (lots of blood, obviously!)

      This anime almost scarred me, couldnt watch an anime like it for almost a week. I watched love hina before it so i expected the same or similar layout, i was damn wrong

      • LordKaiser

        Love Hina was on the comedy side like Ah! My Teacher of Oh! My Goddess etc. I don’t watch pure drama stuff.

      • MrFinalgamer

        I actually loved it for that same reason. I thought it was going to be a predictable, but enjoyable anime. What I got instead was so full of drama, I have to love it for trying to be different.

    • new_tradition

      I can’t stand gore, but from what I understand, it’s one of the few harem animes that actually punishes the MC in the end (even if it was pretty gruesome in this case o.o), so I kind of wanna check it out for that reason.

      • KingNigma

        Yeah the asshole gets it. It was wonderful.

    • Anime10121

      GAWD how I love dis anime!

  • Martian Wong

    If you are getting FFXV, which one will it be? PS4 or X1?

    • bloodiOS

      PS4, because I have no intention of ever getting an XBO.

      • Martian Wong

        PS4 here as well. I got my PS3 for Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

    • Sky

      Ps4.

    • Ghost Doge

      PS4 because I already have one and the chances are that FFXV comes out before there is a significant list of games for the Xbone that I want to play. As it stands right now, I can’t justify an Xbone purchase since every game that I’m interested in which is getting an Xbone release is also gonna be on the PS4.

    • LordKaiser

      PS4 or PC

      • Martian Wong

        PS4 since no PC version officially announced.

        • LordKaiser

          I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

          • Martian Wong

            They did say to play the game to it’s full potential on a PC, it must be a very high end PC.

            • LordKaiser

              That’s nice! A reason to use the full capacity of a expensive Video Card.

    • MrFinalgamer

      PS4

    • AdamBoy64

      For me, it would be whichever console I had at the time.

    • Elvick

      PS4. The other one may as well not exist :p

    Gosh! Thanks so much for all the kind birthday wishes. Instead of replying to every single post I will just make a new one.

    I went out with friends and family, had some awesome food and stuff. Was a good time. Yummy Mexican Restaurant, I just love Tacos. I’m fixing to have some cake now I think.

    I didn’t expect to do much for my birthday, but then things just got busy this weekend.

    Not much gift wise yet, I did get a new headset that I tried out at a friends and liked. He has one and got me one for my birthday, I’m kinda picky with them, but this one seems nice. It’s the Gold Wireless Headset. I’m looking forward to getting to spend more time with it at my house here soon.

    • PrinceHeir

      Glad you enjoyed the day!

        Ah thanks

  • bloodiOS

    • shogunknight

      Why is he asking for this when he was funded to release on pretty much all of them?

      • bloodiOS

        Some kind of statistics, perhaps.

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

        Probably the same reason why they’re asking for more money after already getting the game funded. They don’t know what the hell they’re doing.

      • Anime10121

        They just want to know what console the majority of gamers will be playing on. Statistics, nothing more, nothing less.

      • Elvick

        So they know who to screw over with late ass ports?

  • Pekola

    Why is this open forum full of hentai?

    • Anime10121

      What are you talking about, aint no hentai in here…
      (unless you’re referring to the Rail Wars pics…and thats FAR from hentai, and even rather tame by most anime standards)

      • Pekola

        I don’t mean hentai pictures. Though, some of these are pretty racy.

        I mean, hentai (perverts) posting panties, wet t-shirts and ladies in sexual positions.

        I’m not sure how to feel about it.

        • Anime10121

          Ah… ok then :P

          I thought you were legit offended by pics of anime shows folks were posting. I mean, I have no interest in Rail Wars either, but I was all like “dis aint even dat bad”, as I’ve seen FAR worse things posted on boards!

    @zerorpg:disqus

    Finally getting around to participating in PvP in FFXIV, mainly for equipment that can only be obtained from marks you get by participating. Also, if you get 1st place for your team 100 times, you unlock a new mount too, so I figured I’d go for that as well. Why not, right?

    One interesting thing to note here though is… During one of my matches last night, I got 7 kills and 0 deaths, as a healer no less, lol. Pretty funny stuff :p

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Nice! I’ll be honest, I still haven’t done much PvP in XIV yet. I’ve been busy lately, but I did finish my BLM Novus yesterday. Just so happened to randomly finish it on my birthday, lol. It almost feels surreal to have it done to be honest.

  • Martian Wong

    Will Monster Hunter Portable 4 ever be released on Vita? They did say they will not release MH for Vita and yet they released Monster Hunter Online for it. There are many hunting games for Vita, RO, SS, Freedom Wars….

    • Budgiecat

      Only if Vita starts selling like crazy and Capcom pulls it’s proverbial penis out of Nintendo’s butt and their head out their own ass…

      • shogunknight

        LOL

      • Martian Wong

        Slowly, Vita is doing better.

    • Sky

      Besides those games, I’m very curious to trying out the Monster Hunter games. Freedom Wars is up my alley. I’m expecting some good delivery from those games. Especially Monster Hunter. 4 should be a great start right?

  • RSene

    I’d like to ask for an advice from the community,

    My fat PS3 got YLOD some time ago. But the problem is, besides the PS3 games, I was using it to play some old PS1 and PS2 classics as well, and I still have lots of games unopened here waiting to be played.

    So I’m wondering what is my best option to buy. I heard that the new PS3 models don’t run PS1/PS2 games, so should I look for a PS2 slim console? You guys think I still can find a new console?

    What are your suggestions?

    • Anime10121

      1. Nope, newer PS3’s have NO emulation for PS2 games period (which sucks though downloaded PSN games work), however they still do all play PSone games…

      2. Yeah, if you still have physical PS2 games you want to beat, just get a cheap PS2 slim.

      3. You can still find a new console if you want…but PS2’s are pretty damn sturdy, so I’d see no benefit since used will be MUCH cheaper…

      • RSene

        Ok, so for me to be able to play my PS2 and PS3 game I’ll need to buy two systems, right?

        • Anime10121

          Yep, unless you find a BC PS3 somewhere online, but you’ll end up paying far more than its worth :/

          • RSene

            Yeah, I believe buying a PS2 slim and a PS3 slim will cost me less than getting a BC PS3 then.

            About the slim versions (both PS2 and PS3), do I need to look for something in particular, or any new model will be enough?

            • Anime10121

              Either should be fine, as I’ve had no problems out of my “1rst gen slim PS3″ and I’m sure if there were any problems with the newer models it’d be all over the internet by now.

              And as far as PS2’s go, it doesnt really matter as the only ones that ever had issues were the original “big” ones (with the disc read errors), and I had one of those 14 years before I parted ways with it and it still worked fine!

              • RSene

                Nice.. Are these guys region locked?

                • Anime10121

                  PS2’s yes (though as mentioned you can circumvent that with Swap Magic)

                  PS3’s nope, all region free, except for select games like Persona 4 arena!

                  • RSene

                    OK.. guess then I’m good to go. Thanks alot for the help. Feel free to share anything else you think should be relevant.

                    • Anime10121

                      No prob, and dont forget memory cards for your PS2!

                    • BlueCereal

                      Keep in mind that if you were to get a backward compatible PS3 you’d be able to use the smoothing option for PS2 games.

                    • RSene

                      Yu mean, the Fat PS3 provides the best experience to play PS2 games than the PS2 Slim?

                    • BlueCereal

                      Well there a few bugs with some games but it smooths the image for PS2 games making them look slightly better (good for HDTVs). One of the reasons I regreat not getting a 60GB PS3.

                    • RSene

                      I see… I had a 60G PS3, but it got YLOD. I also have a HDTV, but considering the cost to find another BC PS3, I guess I’ll go with a PS2 Slim… although I’d prefer to have a BC PS3 instead.

                    • BlueCereal

                      On the positive side it means you won’t get any compatibility issues with PS2 games.

        • LordKaiser

          If you have a powerful PC you can use a emulator to play PS2 games. Because Sony discontinued the PS2 I’m saying this to you.

    • Budgiecat

      500gb PS3 Slim for PS3 gaems

      • RSene

        What is this third thing you listed? ‘Swap Magic 3.0 disc for PS1/PS2 imports’

        • Anime10121

          Its a tool used to play backups and import games! Pretty damn handy, had one myself before I gifted my PS2 to my niece last christmas…

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

      I almost thought your PS3 got YOLOD… Bad images right there.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      I got a PS2 slim to play my PS2 games; hooked up into the same cabinet as the PS3 with some component cables that make it look as good as up-res’d PS2 Classic games. I have an old fat “Spider-Man font” PS3 myself, but it is NOT the kind that was backwards compatible with PS2, so digital PS2 classics are the only way I can do it.

      It’s fine. They look really nice with component cables, which are not expensive (I think I paid 4 bucks on Amazon for the pair I have now). Just sucks having to switch controllers and go back to *ugh* wired dual shocks. BLEH.

      What does YLOD mean? “Yellow Light of Death”? Can’t you hard reset the console still and have it fix itself?

      If you haven’t done that, try that first: http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/2265/ps3_how_to_factory_hard_reset/

      It’ll get rid of your save games, which sucks if you have had it for awhile. But it’ll get back to working order like it was new. It’s also called a Factory Reset. I had to do that when I first got a PS3; when I only owned, like, 5 games, so ultimately it was no big deal (though I still haven’t beaten Eternal Sonata yet because having to restart that and redo all my progress was a HUGE bummer, and I only pick it up infrequently now). But nowadays, if you have PS Plus, hopefully you have some cloud backups?

      • RSene

        Thanks for the tips.

        As you said, I’ll use the component cables for the PS2 Slim, so I expect to gain some quality…

        About the PS3, I just tried a tip from the net and, well, it worked!! WooHoo!! Almost an year and a half on the shelves and now the fat is working!

        Too bad I had already messed with the 500 GB HD I was using, and now the PS3 isn’t recognizing the HD. So I had to install the original 60GB HD.

    • LordKaiser

      All PS3 models play PS1 games as I understand it. Even the Super Slim but they won’t play PS2 games sadly.

      Saw that at Gamestop the day before yesterday, and while I was tempted… I still think thats too high a price to buy the same game again only prettier… I’ll get it when it gets in the low teens

      • Sky

        29.99 seems like a fair price for new comers. I haven’t played the reboot version myself yet. That also counts the Ps3, 360 version too. I’m probably gonna play the next gen version until next year.I would like more Ps4 games to come out.

        • Anime10121

          Its a steal at that price for new comers! It was one of my favorite games of the last couple years! Regardless of how people compare it to Uncharted, to me, Tomb Raider was BETTER! So look forward to it, and you’ll also have the sequel coming out later that year as well :D

          • Sky

            Yeah, I manage to found an edition that holds a Laura figurine. Sadly it was on Xbox 360. If i had a 360, I would’ve picked that game up. The figurine looks really good. Maybe my luck will come in for TOX2’s CE.

    Hey, so what happened to Six, exactly?

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

      No idea

    • Anime10121

      Troll (Seven) ticked him off probably. Made the account just to piss off six for liking Xbox…

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

        Six is cool, I don’t mind that he’s into Xbox. Infact I expect to see his comments in the articles

        • Anime10121

          I agree, I think he’s one of the most rational people in the community (along with some of the folks in OF). Crazy part is he aint even a fanboy, he may prefer the Xbox brand after having a 360, but he was open to PS4 as well. Some folks just cant bear that someone actually likes the Xbox brand, considering many here are fans of Japanese gaming and in effect, Sony/Nintendo fans (though thankfully not NEARLY as bad as Dualshockers community) :/

          • z_merquise

            There’s always this impression in gaming sites that if you like XBox and happen to play games like Call of Duty and Halo, you’re branded as a “dudebro”.

            Six will openly admit that he’s fan and that may be the reason why some users will pick on him even he like so many Japanese games as well (except the moe stuff).

            • Anime10121

              And I also hate all those stupid ass terms that come from them. I happen to like Halo (its part of the reasons I bought an Xbone) and I’m as far from “dudebro” as you can get :/

          • Samsara09

            Almost all of mister/miss Six’s points are very logical and thoughtful.He is really a great person…lol,I say this because few people are logical and thoughtful here on the web.Most behave like they are 8 years old.

      • shogunknight

        Really? So thats what all his profile was about? To troll another user? Extreme fanboys….smh

        • Anime10121

          Yep, he even admitted it when asked about it, which I’m sure Zero saw, which is why the account got banned :/

          • shogunknight

            Thats terrible. Its sad how fans have become of recent, my understanding of a fan is being objective to what he/she likes. If Sony/Nintendo/Microsoft do something good (like the E3 treehouse and the gamer focus), they should be praised. If they do something wrong, no matter how much you like their products, they should be critisized (like how users dont like the PSNow pricing). Its top priority for the fans (most especially) to complain if there is something wrong with their company of choice, its not just for you as a gamer but for anyone that can ever have interest in joining in. The problem we are having now is that extreme fans (fanboys) arent judging or caring for their companies of choice when they do something wrong, it causes blind arguments (you can go to ign and take a look at virtually all comments in any xbox/playstation article) where everything else is wrong and only they are right. Its not bad to be a fan of something or even argue between each other about your differences but we need to learn to respect ones interests. Im glad that aside from the usual interests we have here in gematsu, we are actually objective in other fields in gaming (even though we may not play them). The same cant be said for gamers in some other sites unfortunately

            • Anime10121

              Yeah, its funny how my preferred gaming platform is Playstation, and yet anytime I criticize something they do (or say something ungodly like The Last of Us is just good and not perfect), folks to bash my opinion :P

              It was so funny how when PS4 first came out and I got mine, I shared some things I didnt care for about the system and people all over would blast me and say I didnt have the system :/

              Ooh how I love the fanboys who cant take criticism about a game company but love to spew it out against the ones they dont like XD

              Just makes me all kinds of giggly on the inside when I see it :P

              • Samsara09

                This is why I either stay shut,or I keep it “respectful”…aka:”I really love Sony,but man,they messed here,for reasons X,Y,Z.Hope they rectify this soon “.

                When I see shit’s burning,Idon’t even bother myself to dignify it with a post.If it does get unacceptable… and out of control,then I post regardless.There are somethings so bad I simply can’t ignore.

            • Samsara09

              I agree with this,although I try to be respectful with my critics…but,yeah,sometimes,sony really presses the crap button.
              Being respectiful means to mind my words.It may seem like fake consideration,but I do this to get less headaches later on.

              • shogunknight

                TBH, They are all capable of making mistakes or doing wrong things/decisions at a point in time. The consoles, ideas and policies are made by humans not machines so they arent always perfect. We just have to try to remember to be as objective as possible in arguments, avoid pointless arguments and dont go too extreme on criticism of others products (unless it really needs it). It can be hard at some points and we can forget but at least when any of us remembers we can try to tone it down

                • Samsara09

                  But we can’t be objective.No matter how far we justify it,it’s still an opinion.The guy can simply “refute” it by saying “I disagree”.

                  This is why 70% of the times i simply ignore the shits companies do.My opinions won’t change things much.

                  They don’t feed me,play my school,my health…why the hell would I be loyal to people who see me as a consumer,as a mook?

                  Sometimes,15%,I simply mask respectfulness and post.Other 15%,I post,regardless of criticism.This happens when i see something unacceptable.

                  Dare to say something like “How cool x game will look on PS3 or PS4 instead of Vita”.

                    This is most pathetic.Sony treats the vita like shit.Logically,people would abandon it.But some took it to themselves to carry a console that not even it’s creator is willing to support seriously.

                    And worse,they do it in highly pathetic and ineffective ways.Bashing other consoles won’t work.And hell,they even bash the PS3 and PS4.LOL…Envious little shits…

                    • Anime10121

                      Regardless of Sony’s support, Vita has enough games for me from third parties, so it’s still a great console to own! However I’d always choose a console version over a Vita port if possible…

                    • Samsara09

                      Well,that’s the right way of supporting a console.If only you could teach them :D

                    • LordKaiser

                      I remember there was a game announced for Vita. IDR what game it was but I said that it would be cool if that game would also be ported to the PS3 and then someone got upset about it and accused me of port begging trying to use this forum guidelines against me. It turned into a little debate and 2 of her friends joined in and she was claiming how she and another guy destroyed “Vita bashers” in other forums XD. 1 of them was Siliconera I think…

                      It’s mentioning how a game a portable game look on a console port begging?

                      So yeah Vita Drones are the worst.

        • Anime10121

          Doesn’t take much after professing to like Microsoft consoles more… You make any critique about Sony and its DEFINITELY because you suck from the teet of Phil Spencer and you’re a jaded Microdrone :/

          At this point in the game and for the forseeable future, I prefer XBones lineup over PS4’s and Wii U’s over both. And this coming from someone who prefers PS platforms.

          That will surely change over time once things start getting localized, but currently and at least until the end of this year IMO Xbone has a far more appealing lineup, and Wii U even better! I’ve had people argue my opinion is wrong :/

          I’m like, like what you like, but that won’t really change the fact that I think Ps4’s current exclusive line up is crap. The only good exclusive I can think of coming soon is GGxrd, and that’s also coming to ps3.

          I’m still buying any and all multiplats for ps4 though as it’s my preferred platform, but most of the exclusive games I want for it will be at least a year or two before they’re localized.

          But of course saying all that means my opinions wrong and invalid to some folks :/

            Although I appreciate the game developers,the people who work like there is no tomorrow,for making quality games.

            I do “troll” sony too.For instance,that game renting service…that’s shit,for example.

    How good is Game of Thrones

    • Anime10121

      I’ve heard its one of the best shows on TV right now…but I cant get into it for some reason…

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

        It’s on HBO?

        • Anime10121

          Yep

        • Anime10121

          But much like anything else, it can also be streamed in numerous ways…

      • KingNigma

        I can’t either. It’s the medieval setting for me like those shows just don’t interest me,

        • Anime10121

          That’s likely my issue as well, likely the same reason I cant get into Lord of the Rings either…

          Either that, or the story’s just too “western medieval” as I do like a lot of Japanese interpretations like FFIV, FFIX, Lost Odyssey etc. I’d like to think its not that shallow a reason…but knowing I… it probably is :P

          • MrFinalgamer

            Well, GOT shows a more “realistic” medieval setting, than LOTR. Like, there’s a heck of a lot more death, and a lot of sex, but that was common in those times.

            • Anime10121

              I wouldnt know, I couldnt sit through the first LOTR movie and only saw the first couple episodes of GOT before I quit either…

              • MrFinalgamer

                Well, no wonder you quit! The first season is essentially a pretty big prologue. After that is where the fun begins. And with fun, I mean people fighting over the iron throne. There’s a lot of interesting politics in the series. You should definitely try to give it a second chance.

                • Anime10121

                  Will do, but it’s on the backlog of films/series/games I want to get back to whenever time allows :P

                  couple examples on the list… Star Wars, Hatsune Miku, LoTR, Harry Potter, GoT, Digimon Frontier, etc etc. (its a LONG list) :/

    • Sky

      From what I hear, its an actual good show. Everything starts to get good in Season 4. I wouldn’t know what’s going on at the moment because i’m very far behind. Still gotta finish season 1.

    • MrFinalgamer

      VERY good. It has a medieval setting, but it actually feels like those times, unlike other stories. The show itself revolves around politics, so keep that in mind (although, I guess with the name being Game of Thrones, that was a bit of a give away)

  • Budgiecat

    Really would like to know whats going on with God Eater 2 localization chances…

    Are they waiting for Freedom Wars to come out to give it it’s chance in the spotlight since theyre helping with it?

    Are they holding out on releasing it so they can give Sword Art Online a chance?

    Are they possibly waiting for a Burst version?

    Do they or Sony just think the fantasy hunting game genre is too saturated as it is on the Vita? (Soul Sacrifice, Freedom Wars, toukiden, Ragnorok Odyssey Ace, Sword Art Online)

    Or is Namco just dumb like Sega?

    • new_tradition

      I’m personally banking on the waiting for the Burst version. I rather wait for them to release the upgraded version than caving for a vanilla version.

      Although giving Freedom Wars limelight makes sense too, hrmm…

      • Luna Kazemaru

        Don’t see a burst version happening as i said only reason there was a burst version was to balance the game slightly which they do by patches and complete the story. GE2 story is done after post game. The best version was the only ‘new’ version that was release and that was only with all the dlc

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

      They probably won’t localize it, should’ve heard something by now

      • Budgiecat

        but why? Why pick SAO over it. Really weird business choice. And they want us to beg for Digimon Cyber Sleuth, claiming Digimon is dead in the West, yet now they announce a Western only release Digimon fighter out of nowhere….whaaa

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

          SAO just had the light novels localized

          • Budgiecat

            yeah? Gundam has been around in the West for years (unlike Saint Seiya in the U.S. which had a botched Anime run years ago but we got Brave Soldiers) yet no Extreme VS or any in house developed Gundam games, not even the f2p one despite Namco being on the f2p bandwagon explain that one lol

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

              Ya doesn’t make sense but it should’ve been released by now

        • Elvick

          That Digimon fighter isn’t out of nowhere, it’s obvious from its western announcement it’s meant to dip a toe in the west for the IP. Low cost test.

          SAO has an anime to help it. Maybe that’s why they picked it. D3 handled the first didn’t it? And they’ve done shit on Vita, other than digital EDF, all their licensed games skip Vita.

          • Budgiecat

            Yeah but it doesn’t make sense…why build a brand new game over just localizing an existing one…

            • Elvick

              Almost no text, can sell it in Japan…

              • Budgiecat

                but it’s still a whole new game.

                You’re telling me making a whole new game costs less than localizing one?

    • PrinceHeir

      I would rather wait for Burst edition.

    Well, as some of you may have read, I had a YLOD 60GB PS3… but today I decided to make one more research to see if I could find a solution, and now I can say that I managed to get the thing working! WooHoo!

    Almost an year and a half on the shelves and now the fat is working! I don’t know for how long but.. this is it.

    Too bad I had already messed with the 500 GB HD I was using, and now the PS3 isn’t recognizing the HD. So I had to install the original 60GB HD.

      • Budgiecat

        I dunno where you heard that….the PS2 Ultraman Fighting Evolution series (total of 3 games) is solid.
        Even Ultraman PS2 (a separate game. (although its not really a VS fighting game like those )

        Ultraman Nexus for PS2 might be a little mediocre.,,

        • Kobracon

          Mostly the SuperBestFriendCast. And one of them was even super hyped for it, but the trailer apparently looked really meh.

                • Kobracon

                  Yeah they also have a youtube channel. in fact, they’re the reason I even give a damn about Godzilla. Knew nothing about it and wasn’t even gonna watch the movie until they did a Godzilla Week and played every Godzilla game (good and bad) and any Kaiju game they could get their hands on. Also with a bunch of Godzilla facts.

                  Thanks to that, I watched a bunch of old Godzilla movies to prepare for the new one and then watched the new one and loved it.

                  • Budgiecat

                    Well, it’s still just one opinion. You’re better off getting one of the games and finding out for yourself.

                    I suggest Ultraman Fighting Evolution 3.

                    the one i posted was Rebirth, which is much more difficult to complete

                    • Kobracon

                      Wha…OH did you think I meant the Ultraman games? Nono I meant the new Godzilla game by Bamco. I heard the Trailer looked terrible or something. I played some Ultraman games on the PS1 and loved them as a kid.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Can’t really tell much from that trailer though..

          • MrFinalgamer

            A fan of two best friends play? NOICE! While some of their stuff can be hit, or miss, when it hits, it hits incredibly well (the scribblenauts video had me rolling on the floor!). And Nuzlocke, while pretty boring by the end, the stream was the hypest shit out there!

            • Kobracon

              Noice indeed. I sadly couldn’t ge into the Nuzlocke coz I don’t really care about Pokemon but I’ve watched almost everything else they do. Enjoyed the HELL out of Superhero Month and the MGR:R playthrough and Yakuza playthrough remain their best so far.

  • Samsara09

    I look at games nowadays…and I simply can’t see how the graphics could possibly get better…impressive.Any suggestions?

        …this looks rather frivolous,considering that in PS1/nintendo 64 the caracters looked like lego…or that in the PS2/GC some games didn’t use characters fully sized…or used chibis…

          only reason why chibis are used is for budget or developer personal aesthetic choice.

          PS1 was one of the first consoles to fully use 3D modeling (Sega 32X and 3DO prior) so they were in the early stages. N64 lacked disc size support.

          to be honest, I’m not that impressed graphically with MGS V or the Last of Us ‘Remastered’
          Beyond: two Souls imo looks better than both.

          Now Drive Club, Unity, Order 1886, Division, look good so far. Even Alien: Isolation.
          time will tell how good FF XV will look..

          But I still think we got a way to go till we can have true mind & eye fooling photo realism.

          More importantly though, we need better strides in gameplay design, A.I., locking stable framerate, and more artistically talented devs with an eye for diversity, unique character design, and better stories because I certainly dont want all games looking realistic.

          • 罪罰

            Maybe in 12- 15 years we might get to that point.. if games budget keep rising like they are. Making videogames will be the most difficult thing in the world.

              Making games is already the heardest thing in the world…and it’s also the easiest thing in the world. Making games people want to buy is also easy. Just look at Goat Simulator, Slenderman and Minecraft.

              I think we’ll need to go *back* 12-15 years before we get “good” games.

      This would require ray tracing lighting, better global illumination, more extensive bump mapping, more sophisticated physics that would emulate almost every tangible object in the correct and proper manner. 3D models/characters that utilize said physics for their clothing, each individual piece of clothing being able to respond differently to all the previous things I mention.

      In short terms, yeah they can get better no prob.

          Video games still haven’t gotten better than movies, and movies still aren’t as beautiful as real life.

          So there is a ways to go. :P

    • bloodiOS

      Less obvious elements aside, hair (furs), clothing, and foliage can still be further improved to become more dynamic and interactive. But in any case, the changes will possibly become more and more subtle (at first glance) down the line but even then, there will always be more room to push for higher resolution and frame rate. The day that consoles can render games in real-time at the native resolution of 7680×4320 and running at a constant 240fps (with televisions capable of such feat becoming mainstream) will be the day that I would return to ponder how graphics could possibly get better. Even so, only when there is a gaming device that can directly interact with and use our brain as a medium create a life-like virtual reality, will I finally believe that graphics simply can’t get better than this.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Speaking of fur, Ratchet looked so damn fluffy, in A Crack in Time, and that game is already 5 years old! I wish Insomniac would’ve kept that design, but oh well. Maybe in the Ratchet remake, he’ll look even fluffier!

      • Budgiecat

        why would you need 240fps

        • bloodiOS

          Smoother movements and more intricate details will remain perceivable during moving scenes. A more responsive control input is also a plus.

          • Budgiecat

            I don’t think the human eye and reflexes can perceive above 120fps at best. 60fps is fine.

            #overkill

            • bloodiOS

              Temporal aliasing would still be perceivable at 240fps, only less obvious when compared to 120fps and below. Since we’re talking about the future here, it’s obvious that once the mainstream have arrived at 8K, it’s only logical to pursue higher frame rate from there onwards, seeing that increasing resolution at this point really doesn’t do much good without proper temporal resolution to back it up. What we think might be overkill today might simply be taken for granted in the future. Regarding human reflex, well, I did say it’s a plus, didn’t I? Not necessarily means much, but being more responsive still means being more responsive.

              • Budgiecat

                can’t I just have a hug? You’re confusing me

    Why does Peter Quinn never go back to Earth? He has a ship, and I think he could figure out how to go back, so why..?

    How do his headphones not stop working even after more than 20 years? :O

    Also, there were some other characters that looked like humans, like Nova Prime and such. Are they actually humans that just happened to not be born on Earth, or are they just humanoid looking aliens and their genetics are different from humans? Is that something that ever gets explained?

    • Kobracon

      There are many Terrans that end up in space and end up staying there (including ppl like Cyclop’s father who is a leader of Space Pirates). The Nova are basically the Green Lantern’s of the Marvel Universe and thus have all kinds of races in their ranks including human. At the end you saw that one Nova officer go back to his family who were pink, he’s human, but they are Kree.

      Kree basically look human save for a more vibrant skin color variation range than us.

      As for Peter, its hard to say because his origins are a little different in the comics. In the comics, Starlord has actually existed a LOOOOONG time ago (had his own comic series and everything in the…60s?) There was an arc in the MU called Annihilation that basically revitalised alot of old Cosmic Marvel stuff like Quasar and Nova and eventually Starlord. After the Annihilation war, Peter pulled together a ragtag bunch of ppl to form the Guardians of the Galaxy (which is also actually another really really old forgotten series)

      Actually the joke about no one knowing who Starlord is is also a kinda meta joke coz barely anyone remembers that comics series as well.

      Since I started with the Annihilation arc, I have nooooo idea as to how Peter came to being Star Lord or why he never went back to Earth.

      Also fun fact, Yondu was actually one of the original members of the GotG (The old original series) and he was a tribal dude with a mohawk who was great with a bow and arrow and was good at whistling. Interesting how they modernised him.

      • new_tradition

        Thanks ^^

        For real, I loved Yondu, and that innocuous moment where he turns out to be a BAMF with his whistle controlled arrow was awesome xD

        • Kobracon

          Yeah that moment was pretty darn cool. I really wonder who Peter’s dad is. Thats definitely gonna be used in GotG War of Kings coming in 2017

        Takes a while for the mech to do much in the show, but you can’t deny that the combination sequence and the mech itself look friggin cool.

  • Budgiecat

    If you had to design a Budgiecat game…how would you make it?

    What genre? and for what system?

    rules: you have to have Budgiecat as the hero (and he is a cat) and also be able to control Budgie bird (switchable characters) and you must pick 2 Budgie songs for opening and ending credits….

    • 罪罰

      I would make a survival horror game where a girl is trapped in a haunted house full of monsters and psychopaths and the only way you can help is through using the environment to create obstacles or help her escape when she’s being chased. At moments switch between Budgicat or Budgibird to help her find her way out or to find certain items that will aid her escape.

      You’d have different kinds of puzzles and gameplay mechanics for each. Budgiecat can run around and jump to make things fall over or grab items for her. While Budgiebird can fly and reach high places also make chirping noises to distract enemies around.

      [PLOT TWIST] At the end, Budgiecat and Budgiebird never existed.
      On Wii U so you can see what is happening to the girl in one screen and play in the other.

      • Budgiecat

        Is this a side scrolling platformer?

        • 罪罰

          No, a full 3D adventure survival horror like Silent Hill/Fatal Frame.

          • Budgiecat

            Is it an escort mission or are you also controlling the girl?

            And what 2 Budgie songs would you use for the OP and End credits?

            • 罪罰

              You never control the girl, she tries to run away from the enemies and hides in places. You can aid her escape to safety or try to get rid of the enemies, one being much tougher than the other.

              • 罪罰

                I’d use Slip Away as the ending credit song

                hah :-)

              • Budgiecat

                how do I get rid of enemies what are my powers or weapons or am I using environmental attacks or household items?

                What game engine is this running on?

                • 罪罰

                  You’re a cat, you have your limitations. No power ups, but you have sharp senses to distinguish valuable assets or escape routes. You can move fast and attack though it doesn’t do any damage the enemies can be bothered for a while and loose sight of the girl or not notice any traps.

                  The best option to envision the project would be to utilize a set of middleware softwares and create a proper stable simulation for the game on the desired hardware.

      • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

        I’d actually play that.

        • McPoo

          Lol I was just thinking the same thing. Sounds like Haunting Ground but from Hewie’s perspective.

    • MrFinalgamer

      I’d do a 3D platformer/collect-a-thon. If I was REALLY lazy, I would just do something very similar to Banjo Kazooie.

      • Budgiecat

        any power ups?

        • MrFinalgamer

          Something similar to Rayman 2 would be better. Instead of getting power ups, you would get different abilities over time. Like Budgiecat could learn to climb trees, and get different attacks, with his claws while Budgiebird would get better flight abilities, and could get help of nearby birds, to aid in combat, or platforming.

          • Budgiecat

            neat.

      Main Characters:
      Budgiecat 14 years. He is living with his mom while his father is working oversea. He spend most of his time at school. He likes to sneak off and take a peek while other girls changing their clothes for gym.,He also enjoys watching Hentai while at home. His pet: budgie bird is a gift from his father as a birthday gift.
      The story goes as young boy that got into terrible accident while he was trying to peek though the window to watch his female classmates changing clothes. And he got into a coma. Later, he was awaken by his bird and the bird went on explaining…
      Budgiebird: We dont have much time. You have 12 hours to redeem yourself and leave this place….
      Bcat: What place…and how you can talk?
      Bbird: You got hit in your head while you were trying to peek though the window to see the forbidden fruit. And you fell on the ladder and hit your head. Now you are in a coma in real life. I am here to help you to regain your conscious.
      Bcat: hold on, you mean I am in a COMA?!
      Bbird: otherwise, how can I talk? Please let me explain what you must do to leave this place. Here take this camera and use it to take pictures of all the girls that you had see them naked before. But you must take pictures while they are not naked and in their school uniform. Remember well, you have 12 hours to go. Dont spend too much time staring at them while they are change.
      Bcat: how many pictures do I need to take?
      Bbird: Based on the data I collected, you need to take 107 pictures.
      Bcat: waa………
      Bbird: You dont much time….
      Bcat: This is insane…..
      Bbird: get to it.
      After counting shots and nosebleeds, Bcat finally got all the pictures….
      Bbird: Alright you did it…..It is time for you to go back to the real world.
      Bcat: Yay….
      Back in reality….the bright light almost blinded Bcat….As he crawl…. he realized had the most vivid and bizarre dream. Bcat climbed the tree and started eating banana. Yes, Bcat is a monkey in real life.

      Gameplay: You have to be sneaky. You cannot be spotted by your target. You have to find the perfect chance to take a picture of the girl perfectly. Here is Bbird comes in. You can give commands to your pal and have it distract your target or lure them into certain place to allow you to take the pictures. If you are spotted, the girl will scream and the teachers will notified. At that point, you must outsmart the teachers by making excuse and not letting them find the pictures. You can either delete the picture or hide your camera really fast. If you delete the picture, you have to retake it.

    Here’s (what I hope to be) an interesting discussion. Whats the craziest thing you’ve done in game, for the pettiest of reasons.

    To illustrate what I mean, I’ll share the things I’ve done. I suffered through God of War 2 on the maximum Difficulty because I read that if you did the sex minigame with the Athena skin, you get to see it all happen.

    I also played Onimusha 2 at least 5 times to explore every route in the game with every partner in order to get the sexy costume for Oku (noticing a common trend? I was pretty pervy in my teenage years)

    By the time I got it, I could Flash Slice everything, whip Nobunaga into jello like it was nothing, and so tired of going through the game a sixth time that I never even really reaped the rewards of the sexy outfit. Only played enough to see her in it and just stopped.

    So yeah, anyone got any stories?

        • Samsara09

          the best thing is that not only were those people wasted “for nothing”,but also money that could be invested in,IDK,infra-structure,combat poverty/social inequity…fuck,with the millions or billions they wasted here…so many things could be done.

          Hell,but let’s think positive.Those dead soldiers, all that wasted money…Even the tens of thousands of Iraqis(or more) killed in that war and millions screwed with this crisis that follows Saddam’s death are just collateral damage,broken eggs for the industry’s omelet.

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

          Well, let this be a lesson. Don’t get involved. They already have enough people dying over there for their Holy War which has been going on for centuries. We don’t need to lose people too.

          Imagine it as a fight in school. Sure, you could get involved and try to break them up, but most of the time… One of the involved individuals will get upset at you for choosing a side. I saw a few fights in school, but not once did I ever step in.

          Why? Because it was better for them to sort it out amongst each other. That’s how I feel about our involvement where it doesn’t belong as well. The US has always stuck their nose where it doesn’t belong and we always pay the price too, and it usually equals countless deaths for no reason whatsoever (see: Vietnam).

    • Samsara09

      All soldiers die for nothing.They die so that others profit later on,like with oil and gems…or for ideals that they think their country defends,but actually only do when it’s convenient,like democracy,freedom or self determination.

    Sengoku Basara -Judge End- Ep.5

    This show is moving super fast. Alliance wise, Mitsunari seems to have more people on his side, but Saica are still a wild card in play. If they can untangle all the deception, a lot more people could go over to Ieyasu :O

    But in the meanwhile, Masamune broke up with Yukimura and Ieyasu wants to hook up with him. Mistunari is playing hard to get and wants Yukimura to come all the way to his castle to accept his alliance, orz…

    • Kobracon

      I gotta ask. Are you a fan of the games who found the anime, or one of the numerous fangirls who watch the anime first because of aaaaaall the famous Seiyuu’s in it? Coz I have a cousin who is just like that.

      • new_tradition

        As much as I appreciate great voice work, I’m not really knowledgeable on the specific seiyuus. I have trouble enough identifying English VAs xD

        It’s kind of fuzzy, but I think I technically did watch the anime first, but I actually haven’t completely watched the first 2 season yet (I know, I know, they’ve been out for years). I got sucked into the games more so (although that’s really just about SB3 and SB4).

        So I wanna say I saw a bit of the anime, got into the games, and now kind of in and out of the fandom >3>

  • MrFinalgamer

    Being playing KH 1.5, and while the game is still incredibly pretty, there’s one thing I still hate to see: Default Face. I swear, if there’s a cutscene with ONE default face in KH3, I’m gonna rip that disc in half…

    • Budgiecat

      eh? explain

      • MrFinalgamer

        Difference between a properly animated face (left), and Default (right). Worst part is, that this is in every single game in the series (although, never as bad as KH1).

          I see

          still better than FFX HD tidus low poly field & battle model which they used for a lot of cutscenes.

          Shoulda been one high poly model for the entire game

            EMOTION CHIP was not strong enough

        • 罪罰

          I never understood why they did this, why they still keep doing it. Why animate just random segments. Are they fucking with me, fucking default face.

    • Elvick

      Meh, I’m just happy there are no more non-voiced scenes. That drove me insane. Sure, the lower quality models in some cutscenes annoy me to no end, but I can accept that. Voices? Nope.

      • Samsara09

        unvoiced content is pretty much unacceptable nowadays,lol.but yeah,KH is such a badass game I can ignore it.

    Color me Suprised (is this a consolation for the missing type-0 hd?)

      Some details (thanks to Goli)

      Chaos Rings III is the latest instalment from the series on smartphones, and a Vita version titled Chaos Rings III Prequel Trilogy will be launched simultaneously on release day (10/16 2014), a special packaged edition with several elements such as the story of the series and its artwork among other things will also be launched via SE Japan’s eStore.
      Chaos Rings III will cost 2800 yen on smart devices, while the Vita version, Prequel Trilogy, will cost 4800 yen for the packaged version (plus tax) and 4300 for the downloadable one (plus tax).
      Official site will open on 8/7.

      • Elvick

        What about Omega though?

        • shogunknight

          Maybe it would be part of the trilogy package. I didnt really understand the naming of the vita version (Chaos Rings III prequel trilogy) in the first place

          • Elvick

            Yeah, maybe. The name is really weird. If it were just I, II and III “Trilogy” would just work better.

            So maybe the “Prequel Trilogy” is separate from III, so Omega, 1 and 2?

            • shogunknight

              It may be the omegas 1 & 2 as prequel, then with Chaos Rings III making it a trilogy. Square and their weird naming sometimes

    • Budgiecat

      If it is, it’s not enough…

      • shogunknight

        Its a start, hopefully this wont be the last

    • Elvick

      I hope they bring it worldwide (don’t see why not, given they will probably put out Chaos Rings III ww on mobile and the others are already translated)

      I hope they bring it out at retail here. They could do the SE store exclusive here too… I’d rather they not, but if that’s what it took… I’d probably buy it anyway.

    • Ping92

      what do they mean by prequel trilogy?

      • shogunknight

        I have no idea. Prequel may stand for the previous chaos rings and having them with this new one makes it a prequel trilogy?…..honestly, i dont know

        • Ping92

          hmm maybe it means the prequel, Omega, with the 3 other chaos rings

    • new_tradition

      Interesting. I enjoyed the first game from the little I played on my Android (I actually bought the other two as well but didn’t get around to playing them yet).

      Depending on the price, I could be swayed to buy them again if they bring it over for Vita (or at least be cool and have English subs to make it easier to import).

      Although I wonder how people would feel about Chaos Rings. I feel like it’s a pretty bare bones turn-based RPG with some puzzles. Again, I enjoyed it, but it’s nothing super special. As a mobile game, it better than other stuff on the Play Store, but among video games, it’s pretty meh.

      Oh yeah, that reminds me, they were supposed to release a F2P cross-over Chaos Rings game-what happened to that?

      • shogunknight

        I think the F2P version is called Chaos Rings Sigma

    • bloodiOS

      I get what you’re saying about people who can’t imagine games looking better but what’s the point of comparing CGI to real-time graphics?

      • Budgiecat

        because real-time graphics have yet to match CGI

        this lil project took this one girl like 2 or 3 days to make with no budget

        • bloodiOS

          *LOL* That’s kind of moot. Real-time will never match CGI, given that it’s a moving target.

          • Budgiecat

            oh well…

            there’s still some PS1 era CGI that looks more impressive..

            • bloodiOS

              Well, that’s a matter of opinions.

          • Elvick

            That’s kind of the point though isn’t it?

            There won’t be an end to video games improving if CG doesn’t have an end. Video games will always be able to strive for more as will CG.

            If CG ever hits a wall, then games will eventually. But we’re not there yet.

            • bloodiOS

              I suppose, if you see it that way. Personally, I felt that as long that games (that strive for photorealism) have yet to be able to look like real life, there are always room for improvement, that should be a given. So I feel it’s rather unnecessary to compare CGI and real-time since neither of them is a fixed target, nor is one chasing after another. They are both chasing only one single target, that is to look as close to real life as technology allows.

    Just finished season 1 of Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni…and holy crap was it good. Like, this was WAY better than I ever hoped this could ever become! I knew this was a mystery anime, but holy crap is this mystery amazing! There’s so many twists, and there’s so many red herrings, I just love it!

    Only question: What comes after this? There’s Kai, Rei, and Kira. What’s the order???

    • PrinceHeir

      Ahh it’s been a long time since i last watched this :D

      It’s Kai, Rei, Kira, then Outbreak(2013)

      Haven’t seen Kira and Outbreak yet. But it’s a shame after the first season, it’s no longer as brutal in the future entries.

      You might get disappointed though. Still Kai is definitely dark, but not brutal like the first one. Rei is good, but it’s not dark as Kai and the first one.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Well, while I LOVED the brutal deaths, as the series progressed, I was more, and more engrossed in the mystery. Trying to figure out who’s behind all this is so damn interesting, I just can’t wait to start next season.

        I was actually a bit pissed, if everything was actually due to aliens, like it was eluding, but that freaking cliffhanger! I just can’t wait to start it. Just hope that the end is satisfying enough.

        Thanks for telling me the order!

  • bloodiOS

    This is just out of curiosity but to those fluent in Japanese here, I would like to know how the following Japanese terms can be romanized. The terms are written in kanji but there are also pronunciations written in hiragana(?) that come with them (not that it makes much of a difference to me since I can’t read them anyway.)
    六脈神剣 (りくみゃくしんけん)
    降龍十八掌 (こうりゅうじゅうはっしょう)

    • PrinceHeir

      I can only read Hiragana and some Kanji.

      Rikumyakushinken

      Kouryuujuuhasshou

      • bloodiOS

        How do you think I should split them? “Riku Miyaku Shinken” and “Kouryuu Juu Hasshou”?

        • PrinceHeir

          Tbh i don’t really know since i’m still at the beginner level when it comes to Kanji.

          I think that sounds about right.

          I know 十 is ten(juu) and 八 is 8(hachi).

          Guess i need to work on this since upcoming Fall session is gonna be brutal for me T__T

          • bloodiOS

            Hey, at least you’re better than a total newb like me. Thanks for the help ;)

        • Kobracon

          For the first one, it should be “Riku Myaku Shin Ken”
          and the second would be “Kou Ryuu Jyuu Has-shou”.

          The last 2 characters are usually read as “hachi” and “Shou’ but the pronounciation was mushed together to create “Hasshou”.

          And if you want direct translations, the first one is “Six Pulse God Sword” and “Descending Dragon 18th Rule”

  • Ghost Doge

    Just started reading One Piece after a few games got me interested in the full story. Started earlier today, 100 chapters in so far, and damn….

    http://i.imgur.com/s6sgbYC.jpg

    • Sky

      Too many chapters I presume? I don’t know where i am anymore. Been catching up on the anime. Right now, I have to watch ep 655.

      • Ghost Doge

        Nah, just the moments in everyone’s past that set them on their path. While the amount of chapters/episodes was initially overwhelming to think about, at this rate I’ll be caught up on the manga in a few more days and then have time to work on the anime. Might even check out the movies :P

        • Anime10121

          Ooh, I forgot about the movies! That gives me a little bit more until the next episodes start releasing later this year!

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

      Now imagine being in my position and wanting to catch up on Golgo 13… The manga has been running since the 60’s, lol.

      • Elvick

        Or just multiple mangas that are long running. D;

    • Anime10121

      I understand exactly where you’re coming from… I started the anime a few months back, and yes dem feels are indeed quite heavy T.T

      Now I’m kinda in One Piece withdrawal since I’ve caught up with the dub, and its been such a part of my daily routine for the past few months :(

      • Ghost Doge

        That’s one thing I still need to make up my mind about. When available, I will almost always go with the dub but I’m not sure in this case. I’m pretty sure that the dub isn’t caught up with the Japanese episodes, and when I start the anime, I plan to catch up to the most current episodes which would mean I’ll have to switch at some point between English and Japanese. What I’m wondering is if I should save myself the trouble and start with the Japanese version from the very beginning in order to avoid confusion later on, or just watch the dub anyway >.>

        • Anime10121

          Yeah, I’m the same way, if a dub is available (since with dubs, you can watch and do other things while still being able to understand the show, while with subs you have to dedicate complete focus to the tv), I’ll generally ALWAYS go with that unless I start a series with subs first…

          I wouldnt worry about switching from dub to sub as long as you watch the Funimation dub though (the one I watched), as I’ve heard its faithful to the Japanese version, so if you want to do it that way, it should hold no issue barring a switch in character voices half way through. I myself cant do that, as I’m used to the dub now, and much like with Naruto, cant see myself switching after seeing SO many episodes dubbed :(

          However, if you can look past that little issue, I’d recommend doing it that way, as 600 something odd episodes is a LOT to watch subbed, and watching the half thats dubbed will at least knock down the burden a bit. Its really unfortunate though how the dubs are 300 odd episodes behind, it’ll be years before I even make it to the time skip (someone told me it takes place in the early 500’s) T_T

    So, apparently JonTron was attacked on Twitter by SJWs for calling something “retarded”. I already posted my reply on Facebook, but I’ll post it here too for input and such.

    >there are worse things going on in this world you should be focusing on

    Way to justify your behavior, bro. That’s like killing someone, but then
    saying, “Why are you focusing on me? There are people who murder entire families out there. I only killed one person.” The ends do NOT justify the means, JonTron.

    Secondly, you could have simply stated that you didn’t like the PS4 for whatever reason. You crossed a line by addressing it as “retarded”. I have little respect for people who choose to call something “retarded”, “gay”, etc. when there are plenty of other ways they could go about expressing how they feel towards something.

    JonTron knows he fucked up here when saying this and justifying his behavior by pointing at larger problems in the world is his way of defending himself.

    • Budgiecat

      thats so retarded

    • Samsara09

      Lol…it’s quite pathetic.People ignore tragedies like this…and get pissed if someone points their eyes to it.

    • Pekola

      It’s true. JonTron has a point. But his argument is deflecting the blame. Conflating a console to being ‘retarded’. What’s really being said here? That it’s dumb? That it doesn’t work? That it’s bad?

      I don’t think he should apologize for stepping on the toes of sensitive ‘socially conscious’ people.

      But I think he should apologize for using the retarded slur when there’s thousands of people who are actually retarded and still considered defective or a vice or whatever. That is where the informal use of the word comes from.

      Same for gay. “Don’t be gay” equates to “don’t be stupid/dumb/pathetic” and the reason why it’s so offensive is because it recalls to those ideas.

      Being Gay isn’t bad. Being Retarded isn’t a sin. Then why do people insist of using it that way in our language?

      Until these conceptions are done and over with, no one should get away with using slurs in a negative way with no denouncement.

      JonTron is a public personality. SURELY, he must have some basic understanding of how to direct himself. He has to learn the value and meaning of words, if he is to be a person that wishes to present himself in the public eye.

      • Budgiecat

        nobody uses the word ‘retarded’ anymore anyway for people that are born with disabilities. Do they call the Special Olympics the Retarded Olympics? nope.com

        that word has been disassociated to represent those people for years. the words been long compromised…

        Just like the word “Gay” has long been disassociated from the term of being really happy or ecstatic…

        I dun even know what a JonTron is and who cares anyway

        • Pekola

          So your argument is that because words have can be/have been dissasociated, they somehow don’t mean to carry connotations?

          The word Retarded is crude, which may explain why people don’t use it to refer to people with disabilities anymore.

          But can you honestly say the word Gay is dissasociated from homosexuals? I don’t think so.

          You can argue that over time words will take on new meaning, but that is CLEARLY not the case here.

          • Budgiecat

            “But can you honestly say the word Gay is disassociated from homosexuals?”

            that I didn’t say.
            I said the original definition of the word “gay” has long been disassociated with being ‘happy’ or ‘elated’.

            Just like the word ‘dumb’ (which originally meant mute, unable to speak, most typically because of congenital deafness.)

            He used the word retarded for an inanimate object, citing no relation to anyone with a born disability a word which has long disassociated with them, and now primarily used as an unrelated insult.
            No person born with disabilities is “retarded” because the word no longer holds that definition.
            Anyone still using that word to associate with them needs to get with the times.

            It’s more insulting that some people still denote the word with people of disabilities as if the term still has any relevance to them anymore; if only in means to use as an excuse to rant online on their politically correct proverbial social justice soapboxes to people who couldn’t care less as if the world is now in utter chaos because of it, visa vi, first world problems…

            In short, this “Jontron” or whoever is simply not relevant enough to rant about, which then brings his attempt of deflection about current causes that do matter and have effect, certainly worth ‘ranting’ about. Or any issues going on in your own life among your friends or family. Not an empty word.
            #priorities.

            • Elvick

              Bringing up dumb is actually a really good argument.

              We can use dumb freely and no one whines about people being offended, because it used to refer to people with a disability of some kind.

              I guess retarded just needs more time before the PC police move on. Or maybe the PC police existing are exactly why it’s not already in the realm of dumb?

              Your second to last paragraph is right on. Well done cat.

              • Kobracon

                and f*ck as well. That word took on many different meanings and is used for pretty much anything these days and no one bats an eye.

        • Kobracon

          Look him up, his videos are pretty funny.

      • Kobracon

        Its funny coz in my country, the “gay” is a slang during my age group to refer to overpowered characters in games. Like “Dam Sephiroth is so gay….” or “Taric is freakin gay”….oh wait.

    • Elvick

      I have no issues with the word retarded being used like it is now.

      It was never used to address or be associated with mentally challenged people in my family. Despite having an uncle with down-syndrome (and unrelated but he also has diabetes, so it was and is a struggle for my grandma).

      I mean, who really wants to use the word retarded to reference mentally challenged people? If you still use it to refer to them, well I think you’re more an issue than people who use the word to mean something else entirely. Sometimes stupid doesn’t cut it for how people act. Thus they’re retarded. People can be pissy about it if they want.

      I really don’t care, I’ll use words how I want and take how people act and deal with it. (by not caring :P)

      Technically people are free to do whatever, problem is when they can’t accept any potential negative reaction to their choice. Freedom works both ways after all. You can say what you want, but you have to accept that people can say what they want about what you said.

      And some things actually are gay. I remember watching something with my sister once, and I was thinking how gay it was (it was super campy). Can’t for the life of me remember what it was. And she said, “I hope this doesn’t offend you, but this is really gay.” And I agreed and we laughed about it. :P

      So meh. I don’t like JonTron though, so fuck him.

    • Kobracon

      Really? its just a word, guys. This whole debacle is pretty retarded if you ask me. I’m sorry, but I’m on JonTron’s side about this. As immortal Chris Rock has said, its not the word that matters, but the context in which it was used.

            • 罪罰

      I’m married. How we met.

      Her cousin added me to a guild called RathSlayers in Maplestory. I later left the guild to join her guild. She was stronger than me and eventually we became a team and did everything together. We got married in the game and Four years later I moved in with her and we got married a year after (in real life).

      She loves games. I love games. She can cook. I can do manual labor.

      I’m one of the lucky people that didn’t get murdered on the Internet.

      WOOO.

      Speaking purely sexual attraction, I like guys like this. (no I’m not a girl, to prevent that discussion from happening yet again).

      Though with relationships, it all depends on the person. My first (unrequited) love was someone that was chubby, but he was so adorable. His face was so cute. *sigh* And my current boyfriend is the same way. And obviously for relationships, a personality matters.

    • Kobracon

      Sadly, I’m single and have been since forever. I feel games and anime since a young age has given me a pretty…uhm…lofty shall we say, expectation of how my future wife should look like.

      But I still believe I’ll find her though. Holding on to the notion that I’ll find a beautiful woman who loves games as much as I do. kind, caring, and most importantly, laughs at the jokes I make. I want my love life to be full of joy and laughter. I hope to get that one day, but for now, I gotta make myself a useful human being at least.

      Japan wins as usual.

      • Budgiecat

        they just need moar convincing and pampering is all.

        Zelda traditionally does not sell that well in Japan, and of course, Wii U is not doing so hot, or, not as hot as Nintendo would like. As far as Europe, they probably want extra incentive as well due to multiple countries and it’s varied potential for sales success…

        plus:

        http://images.pushsquare.com/news/2013/08/nintendos_reggie_fils_aime_not_very_impressed_with_the_ps4s_launch_lineup/large.jpg

        I mean, if you’re not going to be confident enough to slap Zelda on the game title because it’s a lowly DW spinoff collaboration, then I guess adding trinket incentives isnt going to be a priority either. Nintendo U.S. fanboys will buy it anyway is probably his outlook…

    Sony gives up on Playstation Mobile for android.

    From Verge:

    “Sony has announced that it will no longer support the Android side of PlayStation Mobile, its initiative to support cross-platform indie game publishing for the PS Vita and Google’s OS. The service will continue to operate on PlayStation Certified devices running Android 4.4.2 and below, but from Android 4.4.3 and up, Sony can’t guarantee that games will play correctly or that users will be able to access the store. Phones and tablets on Android L, the upcoming major refresh, won’t have store access at all, and Sony says it has no plans to give any more devices PlayStation Certified status.

    PlayStation Mobile offered a selection of original PSOne games, and had the occasional breakout hit of its own like Velocity, later remixed into a deluxe version for the regular PlayStation Store. But many of its most notable titles were also available on iOS, likeSuper Crate Box and Rymdkapsel. It may still have a place as the simplest way for indie developers to get their games onto the Vita, but given the console’s increased focus on indie games in general, it appears that the end is in sight for this initiative.”

    • Anime10121

      Of course they wont, they’re gonna support PSNOW on the devices which will net them a larger return while not having to code games for compatibility and never letting you actually BUY the games :P

      Makes the most sense business wise, but boy is it ever an F U to those looking to own the games!

      • Elvick

        PS Mobile has DRM anyway, so…

        And more importantly, it sucks.

        • Anime10121

          Oh? Never got a chance to actually use the service (nor did I want to….real games on a touch screen phone seem kinda bleh) , so I didnt know…

          • Elvick

            It wasn’t even that. It was Mobile games, just segregated from the rest of Android so that developers could have an easier time developing on Vita and mobile devices without getting hung up with the bajillion different Android devices out there.

            But it failed at that. So…

            PSone games were dropped when PS Mobile officially launched. (they support/supported controls anyway, I bought Wild Arms back then since I lub it)

    • Elvick

      They didn’t offer a selection of PSone games.

      That was when it was still called something else, I forget what it was now. xD

      But once PS Mobile FINALLY launched, they ditched PSone game support.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      I never even noticed PSM.

      To me, that will always just stand for “Playstation Magazine” – yes, I’m old :P

      It seemed super redundant and confusing when it was announced though. Like… it seemed like almost a Playstation Now-type thing. Give you access to Playstation Network games and let you use virtual dual shock inputs to play them (or, I guess, the physical buttons on Sony’s own Xperia phones). But it was just it’s own little mutant branch of the PSN? One that was badly marketed and probably lacking in support? That’s dumb. Just sounds like the PS Minis initiative for the PSP before it…

      Speaking of Playstation Now, I’m sure they’ll just migrate some form of that to smartphones eventually instead if they want to.

          • 罪罰

            True, it’s super cheap to do, super fast and it sells because the new console owners are hungry for games. The power of marketing.

            • $117141671

              And that’s all bolstered by the fact that there is fuck all to play on the new consoles.

                Not to mention, these are, generally, really good games that get the treatment… just like the HD Collections that popped up last gen on the PS3.

                I don’t care if it’s cheap; if Sleeping Dogs for PS4 and Xbone means more people actually PLAY that excellent game, I’m all for it. Better for Triad Wars; to increase the size of the fanbase, y’know?

        • Elvick

          Plenty of people do ask for ports though.

          I’ve seen many ask for the REmake to be ported. If that’s what you’re directly referencing.

          edit; I see Sleeping Dogs confirmed now, so it’s probably that… but I remember people saying they wanted that after a leak about it. So… yeah

          • Budgiecat

            not sure why anyone would want a port of a game they played already over a sequel but whatever…

    If Asura’s Wrath was twice as long and had more fleshed out gameplay it would replace Final Fantasy IX as my all-time favorite game.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Yeah I really liked that game. Granted, I rented it from Gamefly, so I didn’t need it to last any longer :)

      But it was really, really interesting. I actually really liked the episodic approach and the action. But those QTE’s sucked. Heck, that game single-handedly killed the practice. I mean, can you think of a game that used QTE’s prominently that came out AFTER CC2 put out Asura’s Wrath?

      I hope they revisit it in the future. They seem like a cool company who never lets their games totally die. I mean, they revisited Tail Concert with Solatorobo and then Little Tail Story. They’ve revisited [dot]Hack in their Versus Fighting game, then [dot]Hack: the Movie, and Guilty Dragon is related to it too. Heck, they’re most likely working on a new [dot]Hack game right now too.

      http://www.siliconera.com/2013/11/27/plans-new-hack-game-works-says-cyberconnect2-ceo/

      So I’m sure they’ll do another Asura’s Wrath or a spiritual sequel game sometime in the future. And I’m sure it’ll be much more refined and evolve all those cool ideas in a good way. Just gotta be patient… we probably won’t see THAT until the Playstation 5 is out, haha.

      • Kobracon

        I sincerely hope so. Its a really hard choice for me as to whether or not I want them to do another Asura’s Wrath or another Jojo game…..The best answer of course would be a Jojo game does IN THE STYLE of Asura’s Wrath!

          Irrelevent but HOLY SHIT are they crazypants awesome and fun. ESPECIALLY if you know Street Fighter 4. Being able to COUNTER their Ultra’s is the best feeling in the goddamn universe!

      • Kobracon

        What Ghost said, but if you want more extra fun and you happen to know a little about Street Fighter, the Lost Episodes are fantastic. Whenever I have friends over, I show them that, they freak their shit XD

    • Kobracon

      That would have been great. I love that game so much. I made a pledge to play that game over every Chinese New Year. Just because.

  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

    I like poking around Kickstarter to see what I can find, and I saw this game called Braven Arts and thought it looked cool.

    Just a neat jrpg with nice, clean, well-animated sprite art (not the chunky pixely “artsy” retro stuff) and a pretty cool battle system that reminds me of something. It’s sort of like Radiant Historia, but not… maybe Mega Man Battle Network?

    Sony sued over Killzone Shadowfalls Graphics

    Quoted from Polygon:

    “Sony Computer Entertainment America has been hit with a lawsuit alleging “deceptive marketing” of Killzone: Shadow Fall because the PlayStation 4 game’s multiplayer mode does not run at the resolution advertised.

    The suit, filed by California resident Douglas Ladore in Northern District California court, alleges that Sony advertised Killzone: Shadow Fall would run at native 1080p resolution but “used a technological shortcut that was supposed to provide ‘subjectively similar’ results.”

    “The lawsuit alleges that “‘temporal reprojection’ is not the ‘native 1080p’ that Sony promised” and that Sony has not updated its packaging and marketing to reflect the game’s actual resolution. Class allegations in the suit include negligent misrepresentation, false advertisement, unfair competition and fraud in the inducement. The amount sought in the suit exceeds $5,000,000.

    The suit was filed by law firm Edelson PC, which hit Sony and publisher Electronic Arts with a class action suit in 2011. Attorneys for the firm, then known as Edelson McGuire, filed a putative nationwide class action lawsuit after Sony and EA promised a free copy of Battlefield 1943 to PS3 owners who purchased Battlefield 3, then failed to deliver the extra game. The firm is also behind the class action suit against Sega and Gearbox that alleges the two companies falsely advertised Aliens: Colonial Marines.”

      They should be fined for wasting the courts time, then be shot out of a canon.

      • shogunknight

        Seriously, is it so easy to make lawsuits like this now? The dude (firm in this case i suppose) could have just asked for a refund. And on the back of the case its written 1080p output not native. I dont even understand, didnt GG explain how they were able to output a near 1080p resolution for the MP by way of some frame overlap in the digital foundry report for the game? Why is this game of all of them getting the lawsuit instead of something like Watchdogs that looked completely different from the reveal if thats the case? smh

        • Budgiecat

          Damn…..Capcom and EA shoulda been sued a long time ago lawl….

        • Elvick

          Because people are dumb… lol.

          I mean, whatever GG did in MP hardly matters. The game looks incredible in MP and SP. And no one even fucking noticed for months after it came out. So obviously their solution is awesome. (or as fanboys/trolls say, PS fanbase can’t tell the difference… smh)

          And is the resolution a material breach? Nope.avi
          No one is buying a game for 1080p native resolution. No one goes into Wal*Mart and picks games based on resolution. That’s dumb.

          And I’m willing to bet every single person involved in the suit wouldn’t even know today that the MP isn’t native 1080p if it hadn’t been pointed out for them.

    Alright, so I just finished Valkyria Chronicles 3. I really love it! Best in the series (for me that is).

    Huge thanks to the fan translators for the English patch! Sega and developer Media Vision (who is uncredited) really made a great game but no thanks to Sega for their localization “efforts” for VC 3.

    Great game from a great series that’s sadly not handled well.

    • PrinceHeir

      So the link that i gave you work as a charm? :D

      Awesome!! Good thing you’ve already finished it, while i still HAVE yet to start it XD

      • z_merquise

        It is so thanks so much!

        You know, if only Sega did release it in English, it’s surely a day-1 buy for me. XSeed even asked Sega if they localize it for them like they did with Nintendo for The Last Story. Sega, for some reason, said no. It doesn’t really make any sense and that really lost my faith to them.

    • Kobracon

      Oh shit they finished the patch?! Sweet! I can finally start playing the series from 1 to 3!

      • z_merquise

        They completed the patch this December 2013 and made some few fixes a month later.

        Go for it! It’s one of the awesome but underrated Strategy-RPG series.

        • Kobracon

          Indeed!

    • Elvick

      Sega sucks. VC2 didn’t do as well for multiple reasons, different platform and looking worse (and being worse imo) than the original didn’t make it do well.

      Meanwhile, VC3 actually looked like a good sequel. Despite being on PSP. ):

      I say if you have a series switch platform, you give it 2 or 3 games before you give up on localizations. So that the fanbase can be assured it’ll stay there, thus be worth investing in the hardware for it.

      • Budgiecat

        It was a dumb move (VC2/VC3)

        One of the whole purposes of shifting a console series to handheld (like MonHun for ex), is to take advantage of the low cost dev and local multiplayer capabilities. And since VC wasn’t really a high budget game, nor did it have mp, and the PSP wasn’t selling well outside Japan anyway, well….yeah; dumb move.

  • Kobracon

    Maybe everyone missed this or maybe it attests to the fact that maybe it’s not as interesting as I thought it would be, but I’ll try asking again anyway. Copy from a post waaaaaaaaaaay the heck down there:

    Here’s (what I hope to be) an interesting discussion. Whats the craziest thing you’ve done in game, for the pettiest of reasons.

    To illustrate what I mean, I’ll share the things I’ve done. I suffered through God of War 2 on the maximum Difficulty because I read that if you did the sex minigame with the Athena skin, you get to see it all happen.

    I also played Onimusha 2 at least 5 times to explore every route in the game with every partner in order to get the sexy costume for Oku (noticing a common trend? I was pretty pervy in my teenage years)

    By the time I got it, I could Flash Slice everything, whip Nobunaga into jello like it was nothing, and so tired of going through the game a sixth time that I never even really reaped the rewards of the sexy outfit. Only played enough to see her in it and just stopped.

    So yeah, anyone got any stories?

    • 罪罰

      I was never that extreme when playing games nor that horny lol. I did spent a lot trying to get the rumored black outfit on Ocarina of Time.

      • Kobracon

        Ooh what was the rumored way to get it?

    • PrinceHeir

      Played Devil May Cry 3 Bloody Palace.

      It was rainy and storymy day I was around 600th floor then a power outage came.

      I was pissed off at that time and said to myself “I need to finish this once and for all” So i restrated and after 3 hours of hell.

      I was able to finish it finally!!!

      Felt really good at that time!

      • Kobracon

        Ouch, congrats though. You are better man than me, for it would have taken a “Lady nude costume” or something to get me to do the entire Bloody Palace…

    • z_merquise

      It’s kinda similar when I played Soul Calibur 4 and 5. I’m really motivated to keep in playing the single-player modes so I can unlock more costumes and create my own characters. But a part of my deep, inner thoughts are like “I need to unlock more sexy costumes for the ladies!!”

      Eh. I just miss playing Soul Calibur with someone else. My brother used to be my rival in every fighting games and we play hell of a lot of Soulcalibur 2 back in the PS2. Nowadays, he’s not interested in joining me anymore and he’s more busy in work.

      Another game in mind is Vanquish. Yeah, I’ve beaten the game so many damn time and I still keep on playing it. Even if my plan is to play another game so I can reduce those backlogs, it’s like “okay, I’ll just play for a bit” then I end up playing it in hours that I forgot my initial plan. And I still keep on doing it.

    • Ghost Doge

      RE4 on Professional with only the starting handgun (not upgraded) and limiting myself to one green herb per chapter. I also carried as little ammo as possible (usually one stack of 50 unless fighting certain bosses).

      I also cleared Hell and Hell mode in DMC4 without any items (healing was naturally out of the question due to the difficulty itself but I don’t recall if items were allowed, I just know I never used any) and cleared Bloody Palace using Dante, no DT, only E&I and Rebellion.

      DMC3 on Heaven or Hell was also part of that, but to be honest it wasn’t really as challenging since enemies died in one hit.

      And then there’s beating God Hand on Hard with no Roulette, tension, or any upgrades. I think I broke a controller during that last one only because of the amount of flicking that the right thumbstick had to endure >.>

      There’s a large variety of stupid shit I’ve done just for the sake of doing it, but these are some of my more memorable experiences :P

    • Willgaea

      I used to pretend I was asleep then wake up at night to play diablo 2. We only had one comp at the time so I was barely allowed on it. Man that game was addicting.

    Interesting…so I had a dicussion with my friend regarding Squeenix. He claims that Squeenix has been on a downward spiral ever since Enix took over and has taken boycotting anything they do or own. What started this discussion was pictures of all the DC Variants Play Arts kai figures and he was genuinely interested in them….until he found out they were done by Squeenix.

    To which he immediately said he wouldn’t buy them coz he doesn’t want to give money to SQ for ruining FF.

    I find this to be extremely silly for they have nothing in common save for the publisher but I guess thus is the logic of boycotting. Sad really.

      Good for PC gamers, but this does nothing to instill confidence when it comes to future Xbox exclusives.

      Why should I buy an Xbone for games like Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break and Scalebound if they’ll just get ported?

      • Elvick

        What confidence? Did people have confidence? This is par for the course for Microsoft. Why do people continue to forget history?

        It’s simply repeating itself again.

        • Six

          I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how much it continues.

          Quantum Break and Scalebound are MS-owned IP, but that hasn’t stopped them from porting over things like Fable.

          And there are lots of rumors about The Master Chief Collection coming to PC. If their first-party stuff starts hitting PC, I might just make the jump over to that instead of buying their new console, and I’m sure I won’t be alone.

          • Anime10121

            I doubt Insomniac is gonna port SO to PC, nor Platinum with Scalebound (though they are the more likely of the two considering MGR:R)…

            • Six

              SO is more likely than Scalebound since Microsoft owns the Scalebound IP.

              But they have ported IP that they own before. The only sure thing is that it won’t release on Playstation or Nintendo platforms.

              • Anime10121

                I keep forgetting that little detail about SO (that Microsoft is just publishing while Insomniac actually holds the I.P itself)… but Microsofts not really a stranger to porting their IP to Windows either. With the Xbone’s current sales though, I’d think they’d want to keep every exclusive the Xbone has as to give people a reason to want one… because with more and more Xbone games getting PC releases, its becoming harder for folks to justify buying an Xbox One…

                • Six

                  True, but I don’t think it’s as drastic as many people think. I’d imagine for a lot of gamers, especially more casual ones, PC isn’t even a consideration.

                  Losing exclusives is bad, but as long as they don’t lose them to Sony I don’t think it’s that dire.

                  Also, we have no idea the contracts behind these games. I’d imagine they are all different, so what is true for Ryse and Dead Rising 3 may not be true for Sunset Overdrive.

                  • Anime10121

                    True, and I dont see any of those games going to PS4, so they are safe in that regard! I prefer console gaming, so as long as the Xbox One continues to get stuff that I cant get on my Playstation platforms I’m cool, as that right there was my reason for buying one, exclusives I cant get on PS! I mind if they’re ported to PC with 1million K resolution :P As long as I can play them on a console I’m cool!

                  • shogunknight

                    I think it depends on the success rate of the games (well, aside from the 3rd party companies decision if they own the IP). Halo and gears have been very successful on xbox, i think thats why porting to PC wasnt necessary. I dont know about fable series but the alan wake titles were ported to pc, so i guess they may not have had a big impact like halo or gears of war.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Scalebound might be the same, as Bloodborne, in which MS is helping in development, and will make it exclusive to their console.

        Sunset, however. That game is 100% owned by Insomniac (and it’s the only IP they own, not sure about Fuse, and MAYBE Disruptor), so it can easily go to any other platform.

        • shogunknight

          You sure about scalebound? I thought scalebound was for microsoft and platinum games were making it for them

          • Six

            Based on Twitter conversations and job postings it seems like Microsoft is involved some way in development, but probably not so much as Sony is with Bloodborne.

        • Six

          Maybe, maybe not. Gears of War was a third-party IP last gen and it never went multiplatform (outside of the first one getting ported to PC).

    And it was good, but certainly not deserving of all it received (and continues to receive). And some of the songs are complete garbage. That’s ignoring Let It Go, which I personally hate, but can at least acknowledge is good (though will never believe it fits the movie, at least not the way it was recorded… uck. “LET IT GO-WA, LET IT GO-WA… DOOR-RA” Bitch, calm the fuck down)

    I didn’t really like any of the songs. But yeah, I thought it was good overall. I could’ve done without Olaf and them relying, once again, on an animated non-speaking animal like they did in Tangled.

    Another kawaii fighting game. SEGA won’t bring this so don’t wait for it.

    • Willgaea

      I wasn’t really getting a Kawaii vibe from this trailer. It seemed more bad ass than cute.

    • Budgiecat

      Is the Vita version even worth getting? Can you fight people online?

    • PrinceHeir

      Persona 4 Ultimax 2, Arcana Heart 3 Love Max, Under Night In-Birth and now this.

      Damn PS3 still rocking with some 2D fighting game madness!!

    Completely wrapped up Asura’s Wrath.

    What an incredible experience. I haven’t been this surprised by a game since Nier.

      Was it really that good? I skipped out on it because of people saying it was basically QTE the game, but maybe I will pick it up since its cheap now….

      • Six

        It has a fuckton of QTEs, and the gameplay is bland. It’s pretty short too.

        However, I thought everything else was absolutely phenomenal. The story, characters, music, setting, dialogue, etc.

        If the gameplay was better and it was about twice as long it would’ve replaced Final Fantasy IX as my favorite game ever.

        • Anime10121

          Wow…thats some heavy praise :O

          I may have to give this game a chance then…another game to add to the backlog…

        • Budgiecat

          Now play Berserk PS2 and God of War!

            I’ve already played the three main God of War games.

            • Budgiecat

              okay now play Fist of the North Star!

              • Six

                I might. I’ve heard the first one was pretty good, but the second one was less so.

                • Budgiecat

                  its true yeah

    Atlus needs to show Persona 5 so I can forget about getting a new console.

    http://i.imgur.com/WrkGBfs.gif

    • MrFinalgamer

      They need to show P5, so I can stop worrying about them shoehorning P4 characters in there (I can already see them having Nanako SOMEHOW being the same city as the cast, and being a party member…ugh).

      • Six

        I don’t think Persona 5 will tie itself to Persona 4 anymore than P4 did to P3, if at all.

        With how much Persona 4 has been rammed down everyone’s throats it’s easy to assume, but I’ve got a little bit more faith.

        After P4AU, PQ and P4D I think everyone, even Atlus, will be ready to move on. So they can milk the new characters. :P

        • Budgiecat

          never in my wildest dreams did I think they would remake an Anime of an Anime barely 2 years old based on an enhanced port version of the original game…but yeah, Persona4Milk….

          • MrFinalgamer

            And just wait! After the P3 movies are done, they’ll definitely do a P4 Arena anime, and maybe even an OVA, or just a full blown anime based on Persona Q!

            The milk shall never spoil!

            Meanwhile, I’ll just watch this trailer once again, and cry due to it never getting made…

        • Six

          I’m pretty sure they are all the same universe. I think Persona 3 or Persona 4 actually has some references or mentions something from Persona 2.

        • MrFinalgamer

          Well they do reference quite a few P2 things in P3 (not 1, since that one was lost in the collective unconsciousness…or something). Hell, the Nanjo group is still apparently a thing in P3 (which is why I’m hopping Kei is playable in Arena 2…), so they all share the same universe. I’m hoping P5 takes place as far away from Inaba as humanly possibly, but I have this feeling, someone from P4 will still somehow sneak into your team…

    • Sky

      Every time i watch the persona 5 trailer, and even look at this image: http://38.media.tumblr.com/1ab5d9a7f119e4a433122949506f8a9a/tumblr_n95l3eRSbZ1r318rho1_500.jpg

      My freedom needs the next persona game. I hope the story is better than 3 and 4. Didn’t get to far in Persona 3. Except getting owned by midnight queen. That attack is so dirty…

      • Six

        Too bad the image is fake. :P

        • Sky

          Yea… but i can continue to dream. Soon, this game shall be mine. Right now, back to listening to the fan made soundtrack.

        • Budgiecat

          too bad?

          I’m glad

      I do hope they do put future consoles there on it’s respective consoles.

    • MrFinalgamer

      I doubt they’ll do it, but I sure hope there’s an option to have the original VA. Nothing will ever beat “Jill Sandwich”.

      • Budgiecat

        I doubt the latter will happen

          Don’t shoot the messenger. :P

    • MrFinalgamer

      If that hidden JP game does exist, I think it’ll be either The Last Guardian, or a revival (Ape Escape, Legend of Dragoon, or maybe Wild Arms), or heck! Maybe Team Siren is done with Gravity Rush 2, and are making a Siren game for PS4…or maybe the game IS Gravity Rush 2!

      Nonetheless, I would love to finally play Shenmue, so I sure hope a Shenmue collection is announced!

      • Six

        There has been a lot of speculation about Gravity Rush 2 being moved to PS4.

      I’d wonder why Sony chose to bring back Shenmue over a dormant Japanese IP worth a shit.

      • Budgiecat

        what dormant Japanese IP?

        And you need to get a DC already you lazy
