    There is nothing to discuss. This forum is useless. >_> Besides weird ecchi pictures.

    Everybody have a very nice week end. ;)

    Bloodborne takes the weeks OF banner

  • Milewide

    So I decided to order a copy of Pandora’s Tower a few days ago. Anyone here played it? Thoughts? Feelings?

    • Tetsu

      It reminds me tremendously of Castlevania: Lament of Innocence.
      The game feels like a 3D Castlevania in a lot of ways.

      It’s kind of twisted. But the gameplay is fun, has good music and a great art style.

  • PrinceHeir

    I forgot to post this last weeks OF.

    But Hyrule Warriors Artbook revealed concept art for potential Female Link :)

      She’s awesome…and she’ll be DLC ;P

    • OverlordZetta

      Cute, I guess?

      I’d rather Din and Nayru.

    Anyone getting this?

    • Peanut

      If I didn’t already have a PS4, I’d probably take a dive.

      I’d have to dust it all the time though. Poor Swiffer.

    Since It’s only been 14 comments so far.

    If you want some drama and have lots of free time, then you could always read the Zoe Scandal news that’s been out for the net.

    Thanks for @gold163 and @mrfinalgamer:disqus and others for compiling these sources.

    Better butter up some popcorn. It’s gonna be a long and hellish ride XD

      Please stop making me think even LESS of the general populace than I already do :(

    • MrFinalgamer

      Just like someone on 4chan said: “this is the 9/11 of vidya”…

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

      Seriously, what gamer in their right mind even cares about this? Why is this even being posted here? >_>

      • Tetsu

        It’s Open Forum.

        This is exactly why Open Forum exists.

        “Whatever you feel is inappropriate to discuss in other threads, you can discuss here.”

        • Pekola

          Yes and I am certain that because this is the open forum, we can discuss legally/morally reprehensible things such as the private life of people and it’s OK.

          No. Her nudes (which while originally meant to be a method of sustenance) are being used as ammunition and mockery and I make no repairs in saying that IS DISGUSTING and DEPRAVED.

          It’s gone far beyond scrutinizing someone’s career, it’s an unhealthy fixation.
          Instead of actually bringing the fight and discussion towards gaming journalism and gaming practices, it’s been focused on destroying a mentally ill and sociopathic individual. The punishment you pay on the internet is disproportionate to the “crime” because what’s being attacked is her dignity (something which even criminals have)

          I HAVE MORE TO SAY ON THIS! (And I’m not saying she’s correct. And there’s some details I am skimming ATM because mobile)

          BUT THIS AIN’t over

          • MrFinalgamer

            No one has posted her nudes here (as far as I’m aware of), so that point is moot. He was replying to someone saying “why even post about this here?”, and he replied with a reason why. Point is, I think you replied to the wrong comment…

            • Pekola

              No I replied to the right one. Just my reply isn’t just a direct reply to the poster itself but the whole discussion.

              • MrFinalgamer

                By replying to the wrong person, I meant that you directed your thoughts to the wrong place, you silly goose. =P

          • Tetsu

            The contents are not the issue of my reply.
            It’s the fact that he questioned its relativity to gaming.

            He could have been dissing salad for all i care, the statement is broad and I was just re-iterating that out of all the places to write about something, Open Forum is the place to do it.

            I was not questioning and/or defending the morality of the content of the post, just saying Open Forum is a free topic zone.

            • Pekola

              Well that explains it. My mistake.

              • Tetsu

                Thanks for your understanding.

          • Budgiecat

            Her nudes may be ammo but it kinda brings her hypocritical moral character into light (especially since she now seems so ‘ashamed’ of them like they were ‘leaked’ or something, when they were professionally done public web photos where she was paid to do (and even a video invite from her to said site)

            • Pekola

              If that were the context they were being used as, then yes sure. Whatever they’re just nudes.

              It’s more about how they’re being used.

              Personally? No one needs to be ashamed of their bodies. It’s when people make fun of them just to spite others is when it becomes all derp.

              • Budgiecat

                Its not about taking the nudes; who cares about that.

                And its not about ‘making fun of her’ (as I said she willfully took them for money so how can it be).

                Its her hypocritical stance on things shown in her tweets that shows her contradicting nature, which also catches her in lies…

      • PrinceHeir

        It’s nice to see a perspective in the Western side of the industry in which drama’s like this are becoming more and more frequent over the years compared to the Eastern part.

        Seriously? When’s the last time something like this even happened in the Eastern side etc??

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

          This has almost nothing to do with the “Industry”. Quinn is not the “Industry”, neither is her infidelity, or otherwise.

          We already know “Game journalists” , and developers, make shitty back door deals. Whether they have sex for it is pretty irrelevent.

          So, tell me, what does this whole load of steaming crap tell me that I shouldn’t already know? That any “Gamer” doesn’t already know?

          • MrFinalgamer

            I think it’s more of how she’s censoring anything that’s trying to call her out on her BS, and how western gaming media are not talking about it, or are calling Quinn the victim.

            Nutshell: The problem isn’t much about the Industry, but it’s a very important issue in gaming journalism, and should be addressed.

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

              When everyone keeps posting about her sex life, yeah, then she is the victim. Very few people are actually discussing the journalistic aspects, and I am sure most people on the internet would ignore those parts anyhow.

        • Budgiecat

          Well the whole ‘lol Famitsu’ journalist integrity; but yeah thats been around for years..

          • PrinceHeir

            We already know how lolFamitsu is capable off(FFXIII perfect score seriously?)

            It’s more on personal attacks like this. Seriously, hacking your accounts, as well as posting your address online of thousands to see? I know JPN can be obsessive when it comes idols and what not.

            But damn you pretty much ruin this guys life by posting these sensitive information. Since when did gamers needed to be hostile in order to voice their opinions?

            Phil Fish is probably the biggest douchebag in the industry, but i don’t think he deserved this much even though his personality.

            • Budgiecat

              yeah. He was pretty much pointless anyway..

    • LordKaiser

      OK already posted it to AOS and RTU on their youtube channels. I’m bored really.

      • PrinceHeir

        Who’s AOS and RTU O__O

        • LordKaiser

          Alpha Omega Sin and Rich Tech USA.

          • PrinceHeir

            Oh Alpha, he’s pretty cool. He can be aggressive, but he’s just expressing on what some of us already feels.

    • Pekola

      Okay, now that I’m not on mobile, I’m going to try to give some input. (*WARNING* This is gonna be a bit long)

      I thought there was merit in discussing the media’s lack of integrity and ousting them. But it’s lost.

      And it is lost because while they get doxxed (maybe???) and the fury of the internet falls on them for whatever fault they’ve found in these people, the discussion and solutions are forever thrown into a pit in lieu of hacking and outrage.

      Now to be fair, we don’t know to what extent the hacking is true. And in that same coin, we also don’t know what’s the truth and what is the lies in all of this.

      We can conclude that some things are more believable than the others. But this works a lot against /v. We know anon has been capable of doxxing people before, so it’s not a stretch to say that they’re privy to doing it again.

      Who is to say that the boyfriend is just doing this out of spite? Who’s to say he’s not making it up with someone else and that’s how he can falsify proof easier?

      But also, who’s to say she didn’t make up her tumblr hack? She’s been known to -allegedly- lie.

      In all of this, the best course of action was to let nature take its course. We–the individuals—unmasked and present. Would show our disdain and remove these toxic people from the industry through our own means.

      We would demand the terms and hope that this didn’t happen again.

      We demanded scrutiny, but how can we now, when these unknown internet forces are pulling and pushing out there to destroy information and people left and right? (sites deleting stuff and people snooping to bring Zoe’s dignity through the mud.

      What can we demand, when the internet jumps on everything and is so trigger happy? But it’s impossible that the internet can be held accountable.

      But then, can a group of unknowns really stray the course of gaming journalism as they please–and stifle discussion while at it?

      Zoe’s career is probably destroyed. So what good does it do for us gamers to even bother anymore. Our part to play was minimal. Gaming sites and /v decided the outcome of this for us already.

      Do I think Zoe did right? Not really. From what we heard, that is. Does gaming journalism need a big introspective cleaning so it doesn’t end up being a high-school popular kids clique? Definitely.

      But not like this. You do not compromise people’s living and their dignity. For what is a person without basic human dignity? The internet is ripe for witch hunts and her ex was insanely stupid (or very smart) if this is the outcome he wanted.

      • Budgiecat

        that would be some craaazy spite though on his part if he’s making all this up….outing and specifically name dropping industry randoms who were familiar acquaintances of her and potentially ruining their relationships…

        • Pekola

          He mentions that he wanted to help her. And I have to think he’s either lying or very ignorant to the internet.

          One thing is clear, what he did was not in her interests.

          • Budgiecat

            but Im not just talking about her. I’m talking about the “five guys”. If he is vindictive in spite to her okay whatever; but specifically pulling in five other people, hurting their integrity is kinda messed up if this is all a lie, unless he had specific hurtful vendettas against them too which would seem too…convenient?

            “Yeah my ex dumped me so….I’m just gonna drag you into this as well, he who has barely anything to do with her”

            Just seems….off

            • Pekola

              Oh you mean this as a means to prove he’s not lying. It’s possible.

              But even if it were true, I was arguing that he supposedly did it to -help- her.

              I am of the band that believes that he didn’t do it to help her and should have known the consequences of what it meant. His narrative in the recalling of events isn’t really one geared towards gaming journalism and is -very- personal so I doubt his goals were as altruistic as he makes them out to be.

              If what he says is true, she played him like an expert fiddler plays a fiddle. But he ain’t much better–he literally threw her to the internet to be completely destroyed.

              • MrFinalgamer

                …”she played him like an expert fiddler plays a fiddle.”

                So wait…Quinn was dating Kaz!? That scene makes a lot more sense now!

                • Budgiecat

                  Quinn is Paz and Fish is Chico who is now Quiet!

                  KOJIMA predicted this!

                  • Pekola

                    You mean Quiet.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Yes! thanks

                      Kojima is God?

              • Budgiecat

                Well the “help her” part is most likely deflective BS, but hardly the main focal point of all this…

                And yeah in bitter relationship explosions, there’s usually no winners in em.

                But as I said, its not just about them now if the situation is true; because eventually their spotlight will pass. its now more about the lack of moral integrity in the video game journalist market which has been compromised and corrupted..

                • Pekola

                  Gaming journalism isn’t being progressive, in my honest opinion.

                  Their opinions/articles haven’t really made me feel accepted in gaming and neither will they do as long as they keep doing this and trying to act super socially conscious.

                  • Budgiecat

                    Metal Game Journalism 4: Sons of the Social Justice Patriots!

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      If the patriots were a thing, we wouldn’t have these things…I think Zero had a thing going, when he thought about making The Patriots.

                    • Budgiecat

                      forgive me , that plot is still confusing to me….

    • Hidayat246

      i am the only who thinks :

      “WTF all that picture?????”

  • DesmaX
    • Samsara09

      Bribery gets you this far,it seems.How does recruiting work?Is just offering money enough,or is there a catch?

      • DesmaX

        You just give them some stuff, and then they run away

        • Samsara09

          lol,that’s robbery,literally.

      • atale_told

        It depends. Sometimes the demon/persona in 1-2 you’re trying to recruit will ask for money. Sometimes items, health or SP. Or multiple of these, and there’s still a fair chance they’ll flee and you’ll get no reward.

      • MrFinalgamer

        You have to convince them to join. Depending on the demon is how you should talk to it. Based on how you talk to it will determine whether he joins you.

        • Samsara09

          so,basically you need a good purse and a silver tongue.Great.Is it random which words work with the demons?

          • MrFinalgamer

            Yes. Each demon can be recruited with different actions. Here’s an example of how it works (keep in mind it’s slightly different in both Persona, and SMT).

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ju0OOCf9Gk

          • Budgiecat

            When do these demons have the time to go shopping? What do they really need the $ for? I dont see any bling or Nike’s or Versace on them…

    • MrFinalgamer

      That’s recruting in every SMT game + Persona 1-2. =P

    • pixxxelz

      I haven’t played smt iv yet, but the best way to recruit demons on smt3 was during full kagutsuchi (which is like the moon) is there anything similar on smt4?

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

        Talking during a Full Moon is impossible.

        • pixxxelz

          In smt3 was more difficult and they’ll most likely attack instead but if you didn’t want to waste all your macca that was the only way

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

            You couldn’t talk to them, period. The game won;t let you, because they are too wild during a full moon. It’s been like that in every SMT game… I get the feeling you are thinking of the New Moon.

            • pixxxelz

              I can assure that you can recruit demons during full kagutsuchi, they won’t listen to you most of the time, but when they do they won’t ask you macca or items they’ll just ask a question, also don’t forget that some of the races like foul, wilder, etc. Can only be recruited during full moon

    • Sky

      You must spend your time playing that game. I had a lot of fun with it. Took some time to get the neutral ending. My first playthrough was pretty hard, but i manage to get rewarded by obtaining the law ending. Which i didn’t like very much. The normal ending felt a lot more peaceful than law/chaos.

      • MrFinalgamer

        “The normal ending felt a lot more peaceful than law/chaos.”

        That’s…kind of the point. =P

  • Kuro-Law

    Ive got nothing to do till freedom wars ugh.

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

      So you have nothing to do till you earn your freedom? You are one *lazy* slave…

    • OverlordZetta

      Get Soul Sacrifice Delta and fight the Freedom Wars boss we’re getting!

      • Kuro-Law

        Do I need delta? Cause ive got the normal one.

        • OverlordZetta

          The first one is essentially a different game, really, so naturally none of the various updates it’s gotten would apply to the first game. If you liked it, I’d highly recommend getting Delta while it’s on sale.

    • Mnoz

      SAO dude, SAO.

  • OverlordZetta

    Attention Vita owners! I was wrong last week! You actually have until THIS Tuesday to get Soul Sacrifice Delta at the amazing steal of a price it’s at now! Don’t miss it!

    • new_tradition

      Ughhhh, I’m so tempted to get it so I have games ready to go when I get a Vita, but I’m just wary about the download size T.T

      • OverlordZetta

        It’s not too big, and it’s definitely worth it. I’m heading towards 250 hours now, and that’s on top of the 100~ I had in the first game (which is stuff you would do here if you never had it, though it’d probably take less in some cases given the drastic gameplay improvements).

        Either way, the sale might not always be there, so if you want it, do consider it! Assuming you’re going to get a Vita for sure, that is, because if not, that’s a different story.

        • new_tradition

          I already bought Muramasa Rebirth on a PSN sale, got a few games for Vita through cross-buy, and pre-ordered a Japanese Vita game. I really hope I’m getting a Vita xD

    • Kayseur

      Does it get harder after a while? I saw a couple of videos, the gameplay didn’t look bad, but it looked overly easy with very few ennemies at once (in somewhat empty / open areas) and autolock.

      His expression for leveling up is funny.

      I…don’t really like putting accesories, like the Milla doll. When I watch the cutscenes, those things are just so jarring, and I kind of want to put attention to the plot. The few accesories I’ve equiped my party in Xillia 1 is the dagger for Milla, the cat hair thingy for Elize, and the shades for Alvin.

    • new_tradition

      I think I’m at Chapter 7 now. I’ve avoided spoilers, but I have guesses on what the plot twists might be (but they feel so obvious, I can’t help but think they’re just red herrings, so I’m not sure…)

      The debt part gets annoying, but I’m still enjoying the game a lot. Ludger is a frickin’ beast in battle, holy moly. He can do some much O_o

      That said, being a silent MC feels odd to me. Like, as a sequel to the first Xillia game, the inclusion of the previous cast was really good, but as for them actually having a connection to Ludger, it feels pretty weak. Can’t really put it in words, but it’s like his only meaningful interactions are with Elle :/

  • Tetsu

    So how about these Smash Bros. roster leaks?

    If these are true it means we’re getting the entire brawl roster basically and then some.

    Although there’s a good chance they are fake, naturally.

      • 罪罰

        Yurop, my condolences ;_;

    • new_tradition

      The region-lock woes I hear about are more from the EU side who are left in the lurch, waiting for an English release of games that already came out in NA months, sometimes even over a year before.

      Not to mention physical/digital divide, and even some games that simply don’t come to the respective region.

      • 罪罰

        IT’S THAT DAMN REFRESH RATE

      • Elvick

        Don’t forget about NA gamers importing from Europe, I do that a lot with PS Vita and PS3. Need to import R&C Collection for Vita to get a retail copy, probably will need to import Invizimals since it’ll surely be digital here.

        Importing isn’t just about Japanese games. Though I do import some of them.

        • MrFinalgamer

          That reminds me, I should import Quest for Booty one of these days…

    • OverlordZetta

      “SJWs” are probably the last people I would expect to care about region lock.

      On that note, so what if people who care about region lock don’t know Japanese? If you want to play a game that isn’t available otherwise, what’s the problem?

      Region lock is a ridiculous notion in this day and age considering how many games don’t leave one side of the sea or how long they take (it goes both ways – it took Japan nearly two years to get Sonic All Stars Racing if I remember right, which was developed in the West) despite how the internet makes it so that people know full well they aren’t getting those games. If you want to region lock your system, then you better make damn sure you’re localizing everything for everyone.

    Just saw the season finale of Korra…and WOW was it good, like, holy crap did I not expect it to be THIS good! The first episode of the finale ends with a big holy shit moment for both villains, and heroes, and the last episode is just badass! While I might not like how easy they were able to get rid of *SPOILER THINGY*, I like that it actually still had some sort of consequence. This finale feels, like the proper way to do S1’s finale. And that last fight? That was straight up fucking jaw dropingly good! Both animation wise, and just the battle itself. Seeing Korra go all beast mode was just fantastic! Can’t wait for S4, especially with how this season ended.

    • Pekola

      Don’t tease us like this. Why.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Watch it as soon as possible! It ended off really well. One certain scene in the end bothered me, but thankfully they fixed it quickly right after! It’s incredibly epic, and there’s some good ol’ feels in there. ;)

        Also, just a bit more teasing: The last battle in this episode is extremely similar to a certain epic battle in TLA, down to the location looking just like it. ;)

      I’m not much a tea drinker, though I’ve wanted to get into it somehow. I’ve been happily in my black tea zone, though I tried a red tea and liked it well enough.

      I’ve tried to make green tea before, but I could never really find myself liking it all that much. I do like “green tea flavoured” stuff, so I dunno…

      Then again, I like milk and sugar in my tea, so maybe that doesn’t jive with green tea?

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        Hope you enjoy it. Elvick!

        It’s a great co-op brawler rpg, with a pretty great community online (even now, months after launch), in the vein of Phantasy Star Online or Shining Force Cross. Just watch the difficulty spike around Chapter 5 or so – your A.I. companions will be absolutely useless by then.

    I started watching Survival Game Club today. Pretty good. Reminds me somewhat of Chronicles of the Going Home Club. Bunch of silly little short stories. Also, funny narrator.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      I heard this one is good. I still can’t get over the name though. “Survival Game Club” just sounds like an anime about a Battle Royale situtation to me, not a comedy. Btooom! sounds like a goofy comedy (with a lot of explosions), and is about a Battle Royale-type situation. Japan has to be doing this kind of thing on purpose, just to mess with my head :P

    SquareEnix will bring Square Enix Present to Japan starting with Bravely. I think further down the road, they can use this to increase the transparency of Final Fantasy XV. Beside, on September 1st, we have a Sony Press Conference. And TGS is next month. So we have more and more chance of seeing FFXV.

    • new_tradition

      Considering all the rumours surrounding the difficult production of the game, I’m starting to care less for it.

      Like, it’ll still be a system seller to me personally, but I’m way more stoked for KH3 at this point. My expectations for FFXV have considerably lowered since the E3 2013 reveal :/

        Why do I have the feeling though that Type-0 HD is more of a Western marketing appeasement than an actual typical Japan first focused project?

        • MrFinalgamer

          I wouldn’t really care. It’s not like I’ve played it before, so as long as the game looks gorgeous, and runs at 60fps (it’s a PSP game FFS) I could care less about the marketing ploy behind it!

          …And a Vita version would be nice!

        • Gigus

          Cause it is. They heard the out cries of their fans but still managed to.f it up XD. I’m just happy we’re getting it. If English VA is bad, I hope for dual audio.

          • MrFinalgamer

            The cast so far seems really good, although the VA for Deuce recently came out, and…she has no note worthy performances, which has me worried…

    This is a pretty cool… thing. A UK Artist named Rustie has released a game for free at http://greenlanguage.rustie.net/ to promote an upcoming album. It’s a first person, pixely, exploration game where you unlock songs as you discover things in the world. Like, when you find and enter the labyrinth, it’ll start playing a song called, “Lost (feat. Redinhq)”

    Never heard of Rustie before, but I thought this was a really cool thing to look at for at least a few minutes. And the game/album has a really cool electronic/futuristic vibe with a lot of variety (so I suggest keep playing around until you hear at least 3 songs). Some hip-hop and reggae influences one minute, some chill Daft Punk-sounding thing the next, and then a cool mystical sounding track. Just real cool in general.

  • Tronjon

    Anyone hear bout the new Smash Leaks? Thoughts?

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      I think it’s bull. They started debugging the game already – the 3DS title comes out Oct 3rd, after all. That means it has to be content-locked by Sept 3rd AT LATEST (games usually need a month lead, after “going gold”, before ship date – give the publisher that much time to print the discs and carts and whanot).

      Besides, toss in those weird Amiibo figures, marketing (which is going to be THE BIGGEST ad campaign Nintendo does all year, definitely), and other things, there’s A TON to coordinate for the release. They already stopped working on the game and began debugging, balancing, and bug-fixing in force (and they have worldwide testers to answer to for that, not just in Japan). The game is done.

      http://kotaku.com/smash-bros-creator-explains-why-wii-u-users-will-have-1624879347

      I’m feeling pretty good that nothing new is going to show up, especially since they’d have to make more figures for that character. And besides the prototypes they trotted out at E3 and Gamescom, we haven’t seen anything – I’m pretty sure they’re behind on manufacturing those things as-is.

    Played and beat The Last Tinker: City o Colors (PS4). I really liked it, starts off with some frequent framerate drops, but it gets better later on. Not perfect, but better. Easy trophies. And generally easy game too. Only issue I had was the dodge, it was mapped to r1 of all things and didn’t work great, x was rarely used it would’ve been better there.

    Lovely color use in the game, interesting art design, great music and I really enjoyed the story. May not be worth $20 ($15 PS+) to some, but it’s worth checking out at some point if it looks interesting to you.

    That one day every person in this gaming community will control their own destiny. A community of the truly free, dammit. A community of action, not words, ruled by strength, not by PR!

Where every man is free to think – to play – for himself!

    Gaming community is diseased. Rotten to the core. There’s no saving it – we need to pull it out by the roots. Wipe the slate clean. BURN IT DOWN! And from the ashes a new gaming community will be born. Evolved, but untamed! The trolls will be purged and the reasonable will thrive – free to live as they see fit, they’ll make the community great again!

    In my new gaming community, people will play and post for what they BELIEVE! Not for money. not for oil! Not for what they’re told is right. Every man will be free to fight his own console wars!

            And yeah, @MrFinalGamer, I was only looking at the RPGs. The Professor is great, but the games did have a very gradual transition, and I wanted to see bigger leaps, technically.

    All this bullshit surrounding Phil Fish, Polytron, and Zoe Quinn has made me sick of video gaming as a whole.

    I hate that I have to share my hobby with such miserable, hateful man-children. These people are fucking pathetic.

      I lost my faith in gaming Journalism as it’s becoming corrupted like this and also all the SJW. The only thing I have now is youtube celebrities like Angry Joe for reviews, rpgamer for the casual RPG review, this website and that’s it. Kotaku became corrupt, IGN etc.

      SJW on gaming has become a poison and it must get cleaned somehow.

      I think Phil Fish getting doxxed was going too far but the guy is not innocent. But doing this was unnecessary and it may get serious implications to who did it.

        Oh noes, those big bad “social justice warriors”.

        Can’t have an industry that caters nearly 100% to straight white dudes be more inclusive. Femnazis are obviously the cancer killing gaming.

        • Budgiecat

          “straight white dudes?”

          no Black Cats?

        • LordKaiser

          It’s the truth and the truth is harder than steel. One thing is to ask for a game that targets a audience and another is bitch, moan and complain that a game that was made don’t cater to you or offend you somehow.

          SJW is truly the cancer of gaming and it’s the core of all controversy because animated females ARE objects and not humans! Yet the bitch about these imaginary beings being objectified and sexualized… This is faulty logic.

          • KingNigma

            wow.

            This may seem incredibly unfathomable to you and a ton of others, but SJW, feminazis, alpha males – whatever you children like to label shit nowadays – believe it or not they ARE gamers too. One side of gamers are going to express different concerns that aren’t exclusive to those of other sides.

            You think developers should listen to feedback from gamers whether its warranted or not yet expect them to only cater to the side that doesn’t see things like sexism/racism and whatnot in the industry as problematic as it is. Otherwise the side that “the straight white dude” (and even you apparently) will most likely fall under. The side that has had games made the way, in this context, that has and continue to be catered to them,

            The thing is, when that side of gamers (the SJW) voice starts becoming heard, the other side sees it as an offense and is written off as “bitching and moaning” They can’t get over the possibility that they aren’t the focus of the devs for once and instantly try to shun them out going as far as to labeling them with these ridiculous titles and “the cancer of gaming”. The fact there are others that want what you don’t necessarily need is just… can’t have that nope.

            Yet in all this where enough objection and reason has been made to at least make devs make statements to the controversy, your part in all this isn’t realizing those that feel strongly about it and and being open to it or ignoring it altogether. Nope. Your part is to only sit back and ironically “bitch” about the entire thing for existing in the first place and judge with this juvenile “Harrr yall SJW are cancerous. get eradicated!!” attitude.

            Which reminds me, a certain community member’s presence has not been felt for some time. Hope he’s doing okay.

            • Pekola

              Yes and calling people children is better.

              Because gaming journalism hasn’t capitalized and bashed us over the head with how evil and male gazing every white male is and how they need to change.

              As if somehow that does anything but reinforce biases already existent in these dynamics as opposed to challenging them.

            • LordKaiser

              1rst of everything attacking me and playing the maturity card to diminish my points to try to make your argument valid does not work. Call me child all you want, it won’t make you more “mature” or smarter.

              Of course many SJW play games too and that should be obvious but there’s many like Anita Sarkeesian etc. who are not really gamers at all and many are just on it for the sake of stirring controversy.

              http://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/183004/anita-sarkeesian-admits-to-not-being-a-fan-of-video-games

              Also did you read what I said? I said “One thing is to ask for a game that carters their audience (Women, LGTB etc.) and bitch and moan asking devs to change content in a game that was already targeted towards another audience”

              If the change is a male character without back story to a female character without back story then it’s not a problem. Now to force character into the story just for the sake of being there is wrong especially if they’re not supposed to be there and appears to be hammered to the story.

              Also PERVERTS are gamers too and they have rights too if they want to play a game that does not fall to eroge. When a feminist or white knight on Kotaku or any of these sites tries to make a dev or a publisher to censor content because they find it offensive then you’re obstructing and are pissing the target audience of this game off so it should not surprise you if they attack the group that they feel that are ruining their game by removing what please their eyes let it be giant boobs, ass ,full cleavage etc. BTW Developers will carter to the audience that their game is intended for, that’s how it is.

              Yes I know that many of them are mindless brutes that can’t control themselves but that’s beside the point, the point is that if you try to remove the bacon from the side of my pancake, your hand will get stabbed (This is a analogy btw, there’s no way I would do something like that.) In other words if you want to force a change that is unwanted by many, you’ll get resistance.

              The reason why SJW is seen as a cancer of gaming is because they not only have gamers on their side BUT JOURNALISTS as well and journalists especially the ones that do reviews like Kotaku has a stronger weight in opinion over a normal gamer. Did yow saw the video that Prince Heir posted?

              Also I’m not bitching about anything in what I wrote. I’m just calmly pointing the things how I see them. Also don’t project things that don’t exist because you don’t know if I had reached the devs or not. So that paragraph before the last one is irrelevant.

              You’re clearly talking about Tetsuya and he make valid points and I had seen him debate them well.

              Now I will tell you my position just in case you try to associate me with the MRM. I’m not part of it, I’m just a humanist and I like to see neutrality and balance in all things. Balance does not means games catered to all audiences at the same time. It means games being delivered to the target audience as they should without alterations.

              If the SJW want games for them they should either convince devs to make games for them from the ground up or they become game devs themselves BUT not try to ruin a game that was not made for them.

              I dislike censorship in any form and I didn’t liked what Sony did to Wild Arms 2 by removing the obvious hints that Brad Evans was possibly gay. It was subtle but is was there according to this website.

              http://gaygamer.net/2006/07/top_20_gayest_video_game_chara_11.html

              Anyways respectful debates are welcome. Attacks are not.

              • KingNigma

                K first of all..this “maturity card” thing is actually a thing now? “You may talk more mature than me but that doesn’t mean you are” Like?? Would you rather me talk to you as a child? I implied using terms like “SJW” and “Feminazi” was childish because..that’s what children do when they don’t like something/someone. They name-call. And the sad thing is grown people are doing this and believing in it Though, I’m pretty sure I’ve done more than just…talk more mature to counter your points but ya…

                Back to the topic..

                I find it funny that in here, every time those against things like this are opposed or even just speaking out against it, they go and pull out the Gematsu human punching bag: Anita Sarkeesian, the apparent feminist extremist. One who has been exposed of fabricating her gamer status in order to benefit from it. Someone who has tacitly been put as the face of all feminists and woman against sexism in the industry. All this making her the go-to target because it preserves the belief that again, the issue of sexism not being as problematic as it is.

                I’ll say this though. I do not believe she is a good representation of feminism in gaming and I haven’t been keeping a close eye on her as others have seemed to do. I personally think she’s done more harm than good but that does not mean that every issue she has pointed out suddenly becomes not an issue.

                And your little pervert pitying rebuttal . I’m not even going to begin to go into that, Shame on you for even attempting to justify that for argument’s sake. Tbh I should have just stopped reading there.

                Geez, journalists going into to this taking the side you oppose is such a poor reason to call them “cancerous”. The fact that that side is getting increasingly more support. the thought “Holy crap, maybe this IS a bigger problem than I thought” doesn’t even cross your mind?? Like I said, you feel so attacked that their are other concerns than your own that others are taking notice of that you need to go as far as calling it that.

                I mean you literally said that their voices are being heard over the normal gamer as if that is a bad thing which alone gives me incentive to be worried about the “normal gamer” if this attitude constitutes as such. This honestly frightens me.

                Yes I’m referring to Tetsuya seeing as he’s one that feels strongly on such topics and consistently reminds us of it. He does often present his views very thoughtfully but that doesn’t mean he is always in the right and I’ve seen evidence of this. One example (which details are irrelevant) was on another touchy subject, which affected me personally, in which his points were getting increasingly ill-informed to the point where his last remark was borderline nonsense and by the end I was literally shaking my head on how he could think the way he did on the topic at the time.

                Now you can call yourself whatever you want but I’ll tell you right now the only reason you’re now one for balance and neutrality is that again,*sigh your views are not the ones that are focused on in all this. It’s all fine and peaceful when one side has been suppressed and ignored but when the same has been done to you, suddenly…”Humanist. Bring back the balance!”

                Lastly regarding this silly “make your own game if you don’t like it” bs

                Feminist: “I’d like to be a girl in AC Unity. That’d be cool.”

                “Humanists”: “..the hell?? AC ain’t catered to girls. Go play Liberation. See even that game was ass lol.”

                Ubisoft: “Too hard.”

                “Humanists: “Just request a game for you like we obviously did. Or better yet make your own.”

                *Game is made in an age where females make it in the game development bc it’s totally not sexist anyways.*

                Feminist:”We fucking did it yo”

                “Humanists”: “…the hell is this shit game? This game was obviously made JUST to appease these SJW. where are the men. wen will cancer have cure?”

                Ubisoft: *busy with AC XIII:Tyranny set in not Asia/Africa. Main character: Mel Gibson..*

                I need a drink.

                • LordKaiser

                  Those where not humanists, they where the MRM to what are you talking at the end except the 2nd one.

                  SJW term lumps all these activist groups that work together in a single word for better use.

                  Perverts is a overstatement by that I’m not just talking about people that watch porn everyday or something like that but I’m talking about people who likes sexualized stuff. I don’t see what the hell is a problem with that. Do humanity nature disgust you this much?

                  Journalist that are part of the feminist movement and the fact they apparently got more support does not mean that there’s something wrong with games. It means that they planned to reach to that place in order to fulfill their agenda. So yes they are a Cancer but not only them. Payed reviewers are also a cancer.

                  They ruined Kotaku and many other websites to the point that many inflaming articles surface, Like when the game Dragon’s Crown got attacked for something so stupid as the sorceress where it seems that these feminists don’t understand mythology and the symbolism that breasts represent from the artist point.

        • Pekola

          That’s not what’s being said.

        • OverlordZetta

          Anyone who can’t understand the basic concept of simply not playing a game they don’t like (rather than wanting it censored or to not exist at all) is indeed part of the cancer plaguing gaming.

          • Budgiecat

            they have little impact.

            Corporations like EA have much bigger impact

            • OverlordZetta

              A single cell doesn’t have impact, but once it starts multiplying, then you have a problem, as with what I was referring to.

              The more of these people there are, the more companies will want to be mindful of them so they don’t lose money. It’s basic business – if appeasing them means more sales, they’ll do it.

              • Budgiecat

                So why does Capcom and S-E ignore fans pleas yet have financial woes

    I’m watching many action and horror movies for weeks now. I’m thinking of doing some anime-movie marathon next.

    Any anime movies you recommend?

    • MrFinalgamer

      My anime movie knowledge is slim to none. But if you want some good ol’ horror movies, watch Evil Dead.

      • z_merquise

        I only watched Army of Darkness (which was awesome, by the way) but haven’t seen the 2 Evil Dead movies. I’ll add it in my list.

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          The first one is lame. Even if you go in knowing it’s different than ED2 and Army of Darkness (which are horror comedies. The first one just tries to play it straight, and fails), it’s lame by horror movie standards. If you’ve seen Army of Darkness already, don’t go back and watch ED1.

          Evil Dead 2 is a treat though. Definitely check that out – it and Army make for a great double-feature.

          • MrFinalgamer

            I liked Evil Dead, and the remake was pretty good too. ._.

        • Budgiecat

          Well Ninja Scroll is like basic required Anime viewing along with Akira….so I guess watch it and Akira!

          • MrFinalgamer

            Akira was so damn boring. The first 10 minutes were interesting, but after that, it was just weird stuff, and nothing happened for a while, and before I noticed, there was this tumor thing absorbing all of the damn city…

              • MrFinalgamer

                The setting, and that motorcycle chase at the beginning was interesting, but then nothing happened for such a long time, and I didn’t really put attention to the film. When I finally see a giant tumor absorbing the city, I was so damn confused. It just felt like missed potential, IMO. =/

                • shogunknight

                  You must have missed out on some of the key parts of the movie, try the manga. I think that one is complete and more comprehensive

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      “Memories”, “Metropolis”, and “Robot Carnival” are my mainstays. And you can’t go wrong with classics like “Ghost in the Shell” or “Cowboy Bebop the Movie”. Or anything Ghibli – my faves are, and always will be, “My Neighbor Totoro” and “Castle in the Sky” xD

      I don’t care how old you are, Totoro is wonderful.

      Are you looking for charming, violent, dark, actioney, horror, or anything specific? Or just anime-movies?

      Rintaro’s Metropolis:

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTyRMfdDfc8

          And Robot Carnival? The whole thing is on Youtube. It too is an anthology starring a ton of talent who would later make it HUGE throughout the 90’s. Unfortunately, the movie is lost. All the distributors and studios involved with it in the East and West have disappeared. There’s no DVD release of it anywhere. The best you can do is hunt down a VHS copy, and it’ll cost you. So just enjoy it Youtube ;)

            These look great!

            Memories reminds me of Short Peace. Katsuhiro Otomo did one story for Short Peace too, right? Is there like a separate release of it w/o the game or where they available in PSN?

            • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

              It just says Namco’s releasing it in the Spring. All 4 parts, plus the 5th game tie-in, exclusively on the PSN it says like you mention.

              http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-01-30/katsuhiro-otomo-short-peace-project-gets-u.s-release-on-ps3

              I’m sure it’ll get a separate dvd release later. Probably.

              And yeah, you’re right! Otomo did Short Peace too; first thing he’s done in quite awhile. I’m really looking forward to it. This guy is a MASTER. He’s why I’m an anime fan in the first place xD

      I really wonder if Triad Wars and Hitman Next are going to be done like this too now. I mean, all three were specifically cited by Square as disappointments financially (before they backtracked a few months later – surprise! Good games keep selling PAST their launch week, Square!). Now I’m worried that Triad Wars will be a PS4 timed exclusive and Hitman Next will do something stupid too with exclusives. Whatever Square can do to get someone else to pay for part of the development, y’know?

      smh

      • MrFinalgamer

        It wouldn’t really matter if they’re timed. It just means that you won’t be playing it for a while, but you’ll get to play it eventually. Don’t really see anything wrong with it…

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          That’s true.

          I’m just being pessimistic and assuming it’s going to get more extreme as the generation goes on, y’know? Microsoft demands this, Sony demands that, maybe Valve gets in on it too after launching the Steam Box… before you know it, Eidos is making “Hitman: Blue” for the Bone and “Hitman Red” for the PS4, and you only see all missions if you buy both games. And the PC gets it months later. And then a year later, they release “Hitman Purple” for both of them with all the content :P

            Dont forget chibi Hitman rubrublovelove for Vita

            You as Hitman, sneak around elementary and junior high schools disguised as janitors, gym teachers and principal and have to sneak up on girls and remove their clothes!

            Rated for E for Everyone

            • PrinceHeir

              I’d play that!

              You forgot missions like stealing pantsu’s and sniffing them as well as dressing one of the girls on locker room!

              Next gen disguise Yo!

            • Guest

              hahahaha. That’s hilarious. Hitman, coming to the Vita. You’re too much, Budgie ^ – ^

      • PrinceHeir

        Please no! Hitman needs to be on PS4 too!!

    • MrFinalgamer

      I think this is the first time a timed exclusive has caused so much uproar. I’m guessing that at least companies will be more direct regarding, whether something is timed, or fully exclusive, form now on.

    • Budgiecat

      I’m now more upset about cross gen…. : /

      • Gigus

        Agreed. Why is square banking on last gen? If it’s to cover the cost of low sales than that means MS’s money won’t be enough.

        • shogunknight

          They probaby really need the money right now, last i read they were being sued by SNK and police entered their JP HQ due to a claim that they illegally used an SNK character without giving royalties. Somethings have been too off at Square right now, they feel misguided (not talking about the exclusivity by the way, just the general FFXIII spamming with none of their other main JRPGs on PS3/360)

          • MrFinalgamer

            Well, the SNK thing happened, due to the manga publisher side didn’t bother to ask SNK for use of the characters. As such, when they wanted to make an anime out of it, and asked SNK, they were like “Wait…you’ve been using OUR characters all this time?”. Although, I’m not sure why the police raided their HQ. Copyright lawsuits shouldn’t go that far…

            • shogunknight

              Probably to try to look for proof and also go to the department responsible for all those actions taken in square enix. But seriously, what made it difficult for square to tell SNK, ‘hey dudes could we borrow your characters for X time and Y game?’

              • Gigus

                Poor management

                • shogunknight

                  At one point i was hoping it wasnt another case of japan (SE) vs china (SNK) but i really think its the poor management. Its good to know the japanese government take these issues seriously.

                  • Gigus

                    Lol I just said poor management XD Redundancy?

              • MrFinalgamer

                If I remember correctly, its because there was a miss comunication, or something like that. Like they thought the manga publisher asked permission, but they didn’t. =P

    • OverlordZetta

      Does anyone else just not see the big deal?

      • Gigus

        I stopped caring after they admitted their mistake.

    • Sky

      Hollow fragment looks a lot fun. My only problem with the game would be the sloppy translation for chat time with your party members.. I think they could’ve done better than that.

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

        Haven’t noticed much of the translation issues but my brain is focusing on the Japanese

      She reminds me a bit about the girl in Martian Successor Nadessico. Maybe it’s the hair color.

      • PrinceHeir

        You mean Misumaru, Yurika(Left) or Hoshino, Ruri(Right)

        http://oi61.tinypic.com/2pyncbc.jpg

        Tessa does have a similar hair to Yurika or the other way around? XD

        • LordKaiser

          Only the color, the hairstyle is similar to the other love interest of Nadessico’s protagonist that competed with that blue haired girl.

          I only watched 3 episodes of Full Metal Panic. The series starts so slow.

            Don’t worry, it get’s good around Episode 12 or so ^^

              Last episode I watched was when he tackled a teacher thinking she as a kidnaper

  • MrFinalgamer

    So FINALLY read the new issue of The Walking Dead, and…it’s getting interesting, although…weird. They dropped a HUGE bomb at the end of the issue, and I’m not sure how to react. But otherwise, it was good + seeing baby Hershel looks exactly like Glenn was heartwarming.

    • Gigus

      Did Rick Jesus die already?

      • MrFinalgamer

        No, but he sure is loved like actual Jesus!

        But no that’s not the bomb. First thing is…Magna will not be a catalyst of war! She was smart enough to figure out that Negan was full of shit, and left Rick’s house.

        The huge bomb, though, as weird as it is…

        it looks like zombies have some degree of intelligence. It could be that those 2 guys were hallucinating, since they were in the road for a couple of days, with no food, but either walkers can actually talk, or someone was inside the heard ala michoone. So…yep, that’s the bomb that was dropped. Walkers might be able to talk…

        • Gigus

          Put a spoiler tag XD. My question doesn’t count but I’m saving both our asses lol.

          *spoiler*

          Ooh! Pulling a George Romero there. Might catch up then. I’m still waiting for the next season of the walking dead (live action).

          • MrFinalgamer

            It’ll definitely be interesting to see how this develops, although hopefully it’s not a red herring. They were going to look for that guy’s buddy, so if what he said is true, then boy, oh boy is that guy going to be scarred for life, with all that chatter!

            Next season seems…interesting, although too action heavy. Still wondering whether Terminus is The hunters, or not. One thing is sure, Papa Gabriel is going to join the group next season, so that means The Hunters might appear too! And that means we’re even closer to Alexandria, and the greatest shit talker that ever lived: Negan! =3

            • Gigus

              I think terminus are the hunters with a clever twist. There are e.tough hints to call them that given the premier trailer. And I think father Gabriel is Gareth again with another clever twist. If you remember the trailer, he pulled out a bible while reading their last rights before hey become food. What puzzles me is why he would team up with them to look for a cure in Washington? That’s pretty him killing himself and his group of cannibals if they did find a cure and society starts rebuilding itself.

              What’s more puzzling is who was that cop that kidnapped Beth? What is their groups agenda? Just looking from it seems like they’re trying to turn her into the next Hershel in terms of medical help.

              One thing is for sure in the next season. Rick will lose a right hand whether its his own or his other three (daryl, Glenn, or Abraham). I’m hoping for his actual hand cause that’s been long over due.

              Fuck my phone. Not sure why it keeps dumb correcting itself and making my sentences look dumb so decipher away :D

                .

                I believe they haven’t done the right hand, due to having to CG it every time, but if it happens, then poor Carl is going to say bye-bye to his eye! But, yeah, one of those has to die, the group has never had more than 2 right hand man, so my guess is that they’ll axe off Glenn, and have Daryl be the one to have a romantic date with Lucille. Anything to keep mah boy Abraham safe!

                If I remember correctly, I think a saw a black man wearing a priest uniform in the trailer, but if it’s Gareth, then wow have they made The Hunters more vicious! The plot certainly seems interesting + I hope they actually reach Alexandria being complete beasts, in terms of violence, because that was the whole plot point, for like 1 volume!

                • Gigus

                  I think all his right hands need to die though. I really doubt abrahm will be safe XD. He has a mission and once he finds out the truth, that’s it lol. My opinion of course. What would be interesting is if both Glenn and Abraham don’t die and Daryl takes their death seat instead. If that happens they better top Merle’s and Hershel’s death cause deserves a good send off.

                  I don’t ever remember seeing it which is why I’m hoping you’re wrong cause it seems like we agree on Gareth being the priest and being the hunters a truly vicious combo.

                  If anything I just hope for the best outcome.

    Here’s another cool, great thing that Robin Williams did that affected video games. R.I.P. man! Apparently, Robin Williams is the reason why Sid Meier puts his name on his games. Anecdote from Kotaku:

    “Stealey has a different take: “We were at dinner at a Software Publishers Association meeting, and [actor] Robin Williams was there. And he kept us in stitches for two hours. And he turns to me and says ‘Bill, you should put Sid’s name on a couple of these boxes, and promote him as the star.’ And that’s how Sid’s name got on Pirates, and Civilization.”

    So it’s been nearly 20 days since the Disappearance of TetsuyaHikari…

    Now one can assume he’s either on long vacation, got fed up with this site, gave up gaming and the internet altogether, or…something else.

    Since I’ve noticed no new activity on his Facebook, Youtube, twitter, Soundcloud and tumbr accounts in a month (did a sweeping Google search), nor has he played any PS3 or Vita games in over a month (PSNProfiles), that rules out singling out ‘sick of Gematsu’ as a reason.

    So I’ll choose to remain positive for now and say he’s somewhere in Europe or…somewhere…

    • Pekola

      Budgie wtf, you stalker

      But…it’s a bit concerning that he’s not had any sort of activity for almost a month.

      • Budgiecat

        I’m a concerned cat…

    • KingNigma

      Was he your owner?

      • Budgiecat

        he recently mentioned something about a serious life threating illness he has (though dormant) so there could be cause for worry considering he’s usually so vocal about things and blogging…

        • MrFinalgamer

          TBH, that’s what I’m fearing….

        • Kobracon

          Holy shit I totally missed that. Aw man, now you got me worried too….crap I hope he’s alright. Did he mention what illness it might have been?

          • Budgiecat

            yeah but I dun remember the name of it..

    • MrFinalgamer

      I find it funny how his last two comments were about dissing Capcom, and about you to stop bothering him. =P

      But It’s weird how he has not been online for so long…maybe he’s in a very long vacation…hopefully

      • KingNigma

        Are you suggesting Capcom…kidnapped him?

        • MrFinalgamer

          Capcom was angry, due to the copyright complaints, and the only way to stop him, was to kidnap him, and play test RE for all of eternity. @Budgiecat:disqus You must save him from this terrible curse!

          • KingNigma

    Hello everybody! I’ve been a pretty frequent visitor on this website and finally decided to make an account, so I can comment and connect with some of the community. I’ve been a “lurker” ever since andriasang came crashing down, but Sal helped fill that void. A little about me, I’m currently living I’m the U.S., for schooling, but I lived in Korea and Spain before that. I do love anime, but I’m not really any of the new stuff. Fullmetal Alchemist and Code Geass are my favorites. I’m an avid gamer I’m also huge into Kpop, due to heritage reasons ;) English isn’t my first language, so if anything sounds weird, sorry! I hope we can all get along and stuff!
    TL;DR: What’s up?

    • PrinceHeir

      Welcome to the site!

      Glad there’s more and more people from around the world that’s joining Gematsu :)

      I too came in the US 6 years ago and i’m almost done with school(finally!)

      Good luck with your school!! Hope you enjoy your time here!

      • 이경진 (Lee Kyung Jin)

        Thanks a lot! I have a few more years to go, if all goes as planned but I’m liking the U.S. a lot! A bit more expensive, but definitely cheaper than Spain. Good luck with school!

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Man, English isn’t your first language? Never would be able to tell if you hadn’ t mentioned it ;)

      Nice to see ya join up!

      And I second PrinceHeir’s sentiment there – good luck with schooling! I graduated from college a few years ago, but I definitely enjoyed my time

      • 이경진 (Lee Kyung Jin)

        Nope…. I learned Spanish and Korean first! However, my Korean is now a little lacking, since I’ve lived in Spain for the last five years of my life. I…. got a weird family heritage. Thanks for making me feel welcome :)

    Anyone watched Video Game Anime or Movies??

    Not live action ones, but ones that are based on the actual source material themselves(usually in CG)

    What do you think of these?? You can add more if i’m missing anything.

        Was bayonetta good?

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          It looked cool :P

          I wasn’t really paying attention to it too much when I watched it on Youtube. I’m not a diehard Bayonetta fan in the first place, so I only paid attention when the action scenes were kicking up.

          Seems like the pacing slowed down in the middle there. Big action scene, then most of the movie was talking, than more action. But I am really not the best to ask :)

          • shogunknight

            Alright thanks, ill as Six

    • Budgiecat

      damn you listed a lot

      I’ve only seen these in full so I’ll list only what I seen in order of liking best to least :

      1)FF VII Advent Children Complete
      2)tales of Vesperia First Strike
      3)Steins;Gate
      4)RE Degeneration
      5)RE Damnation

      Ones I’ve only seen partially:

      Sengoku Basara (think I saw the first season. Was okay)
      Persona4 Animation (Currently have this on PC. Only seen the first 6 episodes. Been lazy with it. Also you left out Persona 3 movie btw, which I saw, but half asleep)
      Devil May Cry (saw a few episodes. Didnt really like. didnt like forced loli)
      Devil Survivor 2 (Saw like 2 episodes lost interest)

      Rest I havent seen at all…

      You also left out Dragon Age, which was pretty good..and Bayonetta which I fell asleep watching and need to rewatch.
      Oh and Dragon Quest Anime which I seen in parts as well as Fire Emblem Anime …

      • PrinceHeir

        Lol for some reason Bayonetta flew over my head even though i have it on preorder from Rightstuf XD

    • MrFinalgamer

      Most, if not all of you (for better or worse) know my…thing for P4, so I doubt that I should mention it once again (although whenever we get to the Marie episode…oh boy am I going to go irate there!).

      Some movies I loved include:

      Professor Layton, and the Eternal Diva (fantastic flick, they should’ve made more ;_;). The dub is fantastic, so watch that if you can!

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fb7BePljtcY

      The Phoenix Wright movie, while not in CG, follows the game incredibly well, and I’ll go as far as to say that it’s the best game to movie…movie out there.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20xsntIVokk

      And finally, the trailer of such a promising series that never got made: Persona 2 Innocent Sin.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GIVRYSu7Zo

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        ( ^ – ^ ) / I love Eternal Diva! You’re super right – the localization was great and they should make more. That was a real charming little adventure.

        • Elvick

          I need to get around to watching it one of these days. I bought it when it came out here.

          • MrFinalgamer

            Oh you should! The movie is great. It’s literally the Layton you know, and love, with less puzzles, due to the movie being 90 minutes, but it’s still incredibly enjoyable, and the animation is wonderful!

            • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

              ^^ This. Absolutely. It’s like those charming short anime sequences they make for the games, but 90 minutes of it. Plus, you get to see the Professor swordfight in the climactic battle! Very clever and cute story too.

        • MrFinalgamer

          You should watch the Phoenix Wright movie. It’s essentially a dramatized version of the first game, with some cases cut short, but it’s all there! The judge that does nothing, ridiculous hair styles, awkward comedy, confetti, after wining a case, and lots of hologram throwing!

    • 이경진 (Lee Kyung Jin)

      So many good ones to pick from. My favorite on your list is definitely ToV: First Strike, being a big “Tales of” fan. Advent Children was also fantastic.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      The Entire Dante’s Inferno anime is up on Youtube.

      Yes. Dante’s Inferno. That EA game? Don’t ask me why they did a series of animated adaptations for a bunch of their Visceral games (and Dragon Age) for a brief window of time. But Dante’s Inferno turned into a cool anthology. I mean, it’s one story, but different people did different circles of Hell? It’s pretty rad.

      Here’s the whole thing:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kw8bDRa6Lt4

      • Budgiecat

        EA shoulda done a Madden and NBALive Anime

      • MrFinalgamer

        Well Dante’s Inferno is a pretty famous poem, so it easily lends itself for a nice anime movie.

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          Oh you’re right. But this is specifically based on EA’s insane retelling. You know, where Dante is a soldier who kills the Grim Reaper than steals his scythe and jumps into Hell to beat the sh*t out of Satan? That one – now filtered through the lens of directors who worked on KITE and Witch Hunter Robin! (and 5 other directors or something)

          I wonder if there’s an anime based on the actual epic poem though now that you mention it? Any version of it would lend itself to a cool movie.

    • Elvick

      I like Advent Children enough.

      I liked Halo Legends.

      Loved ToV First Strike.

      Can’t finish the Xenosaga Anime, it’s just too different from the game. They changed too much. The first game would’ve translated perfectly into an anime, so I don’t know why they didn’t just keep it accurate to the game.

    • new_tradition

      I don’t wanna watch the Tales of Vesperia anime movie until I played the game, or spoiled myself over it somehow >3>

      (But if it’s really good I just might. It’s a prequel, right?)

      After that, not much I’ve seen gaming wise.

      FFVII Advent Children/Complete was great fanservice and still aged pretty well IMO. The Complete version added some scenes I loved, and other stuff I didn’t care about. That anime about Denzel actually was pretty good from what I remembered, so that’s another plus.

      (conversely I didn’t like Sakaguchi’s FF movie. Loved the graphics and VA work, but I don’t know what the dude was going for. Whatever it was, it didn’t work for me :/)

      The .hack//G.U. trilogy movie was beautiful graphically, but cutting out Endrance and other important character annoyed me. Not to mention going with the romance angle with Atoli. I guess it doesn’t help I never liked her as a romantic interest, but at least the game gave the illusion of being vague. The movie throws it in your face. After that, condensing the story was annoying to boot. I did like the prequel anime .hack//roots though ^^

      The live-action Ace Attorney movie was a lot better than I expected. A few changes and liberties here and there, but it still stayed pretty close to the source material. I really would love them to do movies for Justice for All, and Trials and Tribulations *_*

      Obviously I’m quite enthralled with Sengoku Basara, haha. I’ll probably post my impressions for the next episode tomorrow~

      If we’re counting visual novels, the Togainu no Chi anime was shit. Great VA work and music, but animation was shit, narrative was shit, and to an extent, even the characterization was shit. Big fat disappointment to me, especially since I really loved the original game fuck you JastUSA bring it over already or let someone else

      Conversely, DRAMAtical Murder is looking pretty good. Not super zomg amazing, but I’m liking it and I haven’t had many rage fits yet, lol xD

      Bakumatsu Rock is based off a game. I never played it, but the anime is…odd, but okay. Animation is iffy, character proportions seem off some times, but the music is great. Really bright and vibrant, especially character designs. It’s like a supe’d up version of Hakuoki with a kind of shounen layer, haha

      (I never saw the Hakuoki anime; heard it was shit *shrugs*)

      I remember watching some of the XenoSaga anime, but I dropped it for whatever reason. I think I watched it before playing the game, so maybe I didn’t understand what was going on…

      The Devil May Cry anime got kind of boring to me after a few episodes. Don’t really care enough to try to watch it again :/

      I think I saw some of the live-action Street Fighter movie (with Jean-Claude Van-Damme), but I don’t really remember it well…I still need to watch that new “fan-made” SF series :O

      Haven’t seen Steins;Gate either. Not the anime series, but I think I have the movie adaptation somewhere on my hard drive. I keep losing interest in the series though :/

      Haven’t seen the Bayonetta movie yet, but I’m kind of fluctuating between watching before or after I finally played the game. Hrmm…

      I still need to knock Persona 4’s anime (although I might just watch The Golden over the first one) of my list one day.

      I’m…not really interested in Devil Survivor 2’s anime (although I’m still hoping Break Record becomes tangible before the end of 2015 in English >3>).

      That, and Persona 3’s movies (although I kind of wanna just marathon all of them when/if they come out in English-someone suggested there’s going to be more than 3, so I dunno how that’s gonna work out O_o).

      Also on the fence about the BlazBlue anime. Someone told me the first episode condensed the entire Calamity Trigger storyline into it. Not sure if I wanna get into that (especially since I haven’t fully played the game story yet >3>)

      I feel like there’s more, but that’s all I can think of from my side…

      • Budgiecat

        the Anime is a PREQUEL to the game. No spoilers.

        So you’re good to watch.

    So I finished Wonderful 101 last night and……I still can’t find my jaw that BLEW off….That was an AMAZING ending. I thought Bayonetta’s ending was insane but HOLY SHIT THIS ONE! Every Sentai trope imaginable is in here and as a big Sentai fan, this game was just MADE for me!

    Currently doing the REAL playthrough (hard mode) and owning face with the skills I got from Normal Mode. What a wonderful game, well worth getting a Wii U for! Can’t wait for Bayo 2 Platinum! But this will tide me over very nicely for the next 2 months!

          • MrFinalgamer

            Why you do this Gigus? All the good stuff that’s out there, and you’ve never watched it!? First you torture me by not playing P1, or 2, but now you’re saying that you haven’t watched a brilliant show like TLA, or S1, or 3 of Korra!?!?!? *SIGH*

            http://media.timeout.com/blogimages/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/url-17.gif

              Meh when I have time. Can’t blame me for living in a different region where they show gundam as a Nickelodeon show in the east XD. Since I moved I guess I have no excuses except money woes.

              • MrFinalgamer

                You’re making Korra cry! You gotta watch her show! D=

                http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/1244/2621/original.jpg

                BTW, the 3rd season is insanely dark for a kids show. We’re talking about heads exploding (literally), people getting chocked to death, with their own breath (the wonders of airbending!), and many more wonderful things! You should watch it when you have the chance…and also TLA!

                • Gigus

                  Wtf?! So Nickelodeon green lights head combustions, suffocation but cartoon network cancels teen titans and young justice because of puppy love and Artemis getting faked stabbed with no fake blood. The hypocrisy!

                  • MrFinalgamer

                    Well, nick has treated Korra like shit since day one. I mean, first they only gave them one season, then after that was done, they gave them 3 more. Then they had the whole thing of releasing season 3 early, with no advertising, and complaining about low viewership, and having the show go online only, without the creators consent.

                    • Gigus

                      I think this will put them near the can once parents complain. I’m pretty sure nick screwed on the rating and kids have seen this without parents knowing the content lol.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      Actually, I believe Korra’s rating is for kids seven and older. Sure hope they like seeing dying queens, and kingdoms gone to pure anarchy! And lets not forget the wonderful double suicide in season 1!

                      Yeah, I’m honestly shocked Nick hasn’t said a single thing regarding Korra. Maybe after this they’ll have some serious talks with the creators, ESPECIALLY with how wonderfully bitter sweet the S3 finale was.

                  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

                    Well production for Korra has always been at odds with the heads of Nickelodeon, who basically just bend over for whatever dumb garbage Dan Schneider farts out (iCarly, for instance). Nickelodeon also, infamously, hates animation unions. I mean, they even shift TMNT around constantly – an official, recognized hit that makes them tons of cash in merchandising. And they can’t get their sh** together to schedule that right or promote it or air episodes in a non-staggered manner.

                    And Korra has always gotten it worse, so maybe the team is just like “fu** it. They’ll just pull us anyway (which, of course, did happen. It’s online exclusive now). What’s the point of listening to what they say when they’re just gonna screw you over anyway? Might as well make the show you want to make and screw everything else from the higher ups.

                    • Gigus

                      The hypocrisy I say…. again

                • Nice Boat

                  Stop, I still haven’t recovered from that.

        • LordKaiser

          Are the shows related? If they are witch I should watch first?

          • MrFinalgamer

            They’re both self contained, but for all intents, and purposes, Korra is the sequel to TLA. There’s also 3 comics: The promise, The Search, and The Rift, which take place a year, or so after TLA.

            You should defintely watch both! They’re great shows, although keep in mind that the tone in TLA is different, since the main cast includes kids around 12-14, instead of teens/young adults in their late teens. Still, TLA is fantastic, and TBH, it’s one of, if not, my favorite animated show.

            • LordKaiser

              In that case I’ll watch Avatar first. Thanks for the info.

          • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

            Well, Maple Story 2 is confirmed for worldwide release, and Daum (the publisher in S.Korea for Black Desert) is actually publishing the western version too. NA and EU will get it after S.Korea and BEFORE China, surprisingly enough. Sure, the actual translation will probably suck, but the fact we’re getting it so soon is bananas. I can support that!

            As for Soul Worker, it’s just nowhere near done, I think. We’ll probably hear more about it after G-Star in November.

            • Gigus

              Not a maple story kinda both. The 2-D platforming aspect was a unique twist to the mmo series though.

              Wow, you know your stuff! A side note, one of the biggest singers in Japan is actually Korean. You guys have probably seen BoA’s stuff in lots of anime and video games, like somewhat recently as the singer of White Wishes for Tales of Graces.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      I am definitely becoming a fan of Korean MMOs (and games in general) ever since I got into Vindictus. Now I’m looking at stuff like Asker Online, Black Desert, Archeage, Archeblade, Peria Chronicles, Tree of Saviour, Soul Worker, Kingdom Under Fire 2 and Maple Story 2 and I am just loving what I’m seeing :)

      Oh, and I have a couple Korean bands in music rotation. I have a couple channels subscribed on Youtube, y’know? K1 Pop for example. I listen to a lot of stuff when I’m working on things.

      I bought a manwha series in English. Does that count? :O

      • 이경진 (Lee Kyung Jin)

        Sure! Was it read left to right, or did they flip it right to left? Just curious. ;)

        • new_tradition

          It was left-to-right, although I never would’ve thought there would be a practice to align the manwhas to be read right-to-left o.o

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I didn’t catch you earlier, but here’s my welcome… Welcome! =P

      As far as my interest in Korean media goes, I can’t say there’s much. But there’s some, for sure. I always wanted to play that Xbox 360 game Magna Carta 2, though, which was made by a Korean developer (speaking of Softmax, I know they do a lot of MMO stuff, but another console game would be cool – MC2 was apparently good). Also, I used to play Ragnarok Online a lot back in the day, so I’m really looking forward to Tree of Savior.

      Oh, and I’m looking forward to Kingdom Under Fire II for PS4, too. Again, Korean developer. =P

      • 이경진 (Lee Kyung Jin)

        Yes, I wish our game companies would expand out of MMO’s and MOBA’s, but we do have some good stuff! Also looking forward to Kingdom Under Fire II!
        Side note: Thanks for the welcome and keep up the good work, Sal!

      Annyeonghaseyo welcome, I watch a lot of Korean shows my fave being Running man, I also listen to kpop if that counts.

        • Swellingrabbit

          Aha I know very little Korean, you’re welcome aha. That’s perfect whats our plan do we drop random kpop videos or is it gonna be one by one, but aigoo Running Man is all I’ve watched this summer aside from some anime.

          • 이경진 (Lee Kyung Jin)

            Maybe random Kpop vids! ^^ I know lots of girl groups we could throw at them. Right now I’m watching Apink Showtime and I’m loving it!!! I highly recommend it if you want to see really cute and talented girls doing stupid things. Last week’s Running Man was great with Taemin, Kai, Sehun, and Soyu! So funny.

            • Swellingrabbit

              Yessss, I am watching Apink showtime, Eunji is my fav. I got into watching it because of Exo showtime. I saw it, Taemin and Kai look like relatives its cool. And dem dance moves.

              • 이경진 (Lee Kyung Jin)

                Oh my gosh yes!!! Eunji is absolutely the best! She’s not in the episodes enough though, but the rest of the cast are amazing. ^^

  • shogunknight

    I dont know if this has already been posted yet but damn, from the comments of the FAQ, people still arent very happy about the RoTR deal. They confirmed the timed exclusivity so its far better than the time people thought it was exclusive. My only problem was why microsoft wants to make it compete with uncharted

    http://tombraider.tumblr.com/post/95495143805/rise-of-the-tomb-raider-faq

    Full FAQ:

    Q1: What does exclusive to Xbox mean?

    A: It means that Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming Holiday 2015 exclusively on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

    Q2: Does the exclusive to Xbox have a duration? Is it timed? How long is the duration? Can we expect a PlayStation 4 or PC release in the future?

    A: Yes, our deal with Microsoft has a duration. We aren’t discussing details of the deal, and are focused on delivering a great game on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

    Q3: Did Crystal Dynamics know about this deal?

    A: Yes, Crystal Dynamics is excited to be partnering with Microsoft to make the best game possible. As Darrell mentioned in his message, we have a long history with Microsoft and they have been a very strong supporter of the franchise. They will help us grow and nurture the Tomb Raider franchise more than ever before.

    Q4: Were the fans considered when making this decision? Are Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix aware of the franchise history with PlayStation and on PC?

    A: Of course. We did not make this decision lightly. Our goal is to build the best game that we possibly can, and our relationship with Microsoft will help us realize our vision for the game.

    Q5: Why didn’t Microsoft, Square Enix or Crystal Dynamics say upfront it was a timed exclusive? Why all the indirect language?

    A: We certainly didn’t intend to cause any confusion with the announcement. The Microsoft Gamescom stage was a great place to make the initial announcement, but not necessarily to go into details.

    • Budgiecat

      taken from another post –

      (translated for those who don’t speak PR BS)

      What does exclusive to Xbox mean?
      It means that Microsoft handed us a bag of cash.

      Does the exclusive to Xbox have a duration? Is it timed? How long is the duration? Can we expect a PlayStation 4 or PC release in the future?
      Yes, our deal with Microsoft has a duration. We aren’t discussing details of the deal, because that would violate the non-disclosure agreement, and we’d lose the money.

      Did Crystal Dynamics know about this deal?
      Yes, Crystal Dynamics is excited to be receiving money from Microsoft to make the best profit possible. They will help us grow and nurture our bank accounts more than ever before.

      Were the fans considered when making this decision? Are Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix aware of the franchise history with PlayStation and on PC?
      Of course not. We did not make this decision lightly; it was a heavy bag of money. Our goal is to build the best profits that we possibly can, and our relationship with Microsoft will help us realize our vision.

      Why didn’t Microsoft, Square Enix or Crystal Dynamics say upfront it was a timed exclusive? Why all the indirect language?
      We certainly intended to cause confusion with the announcement. The Microsoft Gamescom stage was a great place to start the initial advertising, while remaining strategically vague.

      • shogunknight

        Wow lol, the game better be damn good in the end to sway the PC/PS4 and WiiU fans to ever be interested after the timed exclusivity deal ends. Right now the only titles im looking forward to next year from MS is Quantum Break and Halo 5, CD better make that 3 games

        • Budgiecat

          Quantum Break looks good as does Cuphead.
          Sunset Overdrive looks decent
          Never cared for Halo or Gears
          And holding out on more info for Scalebound and Phantom Dust reboot.
          D4 seems like a hot mess and I hate Kinect..

    • OverlordZetta

      “Q5: Why didn’t Microsoft, Square Enix or Crystal Dynamics say upfront it was a timed exclusive? Why all the indirect language?”
      Knowing it’s a timed exclusive, “coming exclusively to xbox holiday 2015,” which is what they said, is… actually exactly what’s happening.

      It IS coming to Xbox holiday 2015 and it IS going to be doing so exclusively.

      They’re trying to sell something. Of course they didn’t add “and it’s also coming out to other things later.” Look at E3. Multiplats that are shown during the conferences of Microsoft and Sony don’t really go on about the other console, do they? This makes sense to me.

      • shogunknight

        In Microsofts E3 conference there was always a slide notification (bottom right i think) stating the game was first coming to the Xbox. And in Sonys conference, i dont think i ever heard them saying a game which is timed is as of the conference exclusive to their platform. They just never say a word on the exclusivity, it would have made a lot more sense if they did what sony did on no mans sky or what they themselves said on plants vs zombies garden warfare : state that its making its “console debut on Xbox”. Theres no way using the term exclusive only to state that its timed later makes any sense. If it makes sense then there would be no need of using that word anymore because its meaning is devalued. For you to see even game journalists confused on the RoTR gamescom statement is already telling

        • OverlordZetta

          But if they were using “exclusive” in regards to the time period they mentioned rather than the game as a whole, which very easily could be the case, then there isn’t a problem.

    After watching Ninja Scroll few hour ago, I so want to see a new 2D Samurai Shodown game.

    The art style, music and atmosphere really is similar especially for Samurai Shodown 2 and 3.

    As for the film, I really like it! It’s too bloody and violent with some sex scenes in it, so it’s really an anime film for adult audiences. Fight scenes and the animation quality are all amazing!

    I just read earlier that there’s a new Ninja Scroll movie but shows’s creators at Madhouse can’t complete it because no investors in Japan want to fund it. Yeah. What the heck, Japan!

      Tempted to get this even though it’s $60. >_>

      • McPoo

        I very nearly bought this today. If you’re a preview programme member on Xbox One, then you can change your region to Hong Kong and buy it for what amounts to about £22.00.

        I stopped at the very last minute though as I didn’t want to do anything that could jeopardise my account (get it banned, basically). People seem to think it’s perfectly safe to do but I didn’t feel comfortable risking it.

        If digital pricing in the UK wasn’t such a rip off I’d have bought it from our store without a doubt. It’s sixty quid though, which is extortionate.

        • DarthBrian

          Why would you think I would have an Xbox One? :p

          I agree with your decision though in holding off on that pricing scheme. Discretion is the better part of valor after all.

    Anyone want to recommend any Fire Emblem games that released before path of radiance? I’m just getting into the series.

    • shogunknight

      I enojoyed the fire emblems on GBA, try all the three FE on GBA (only three i know of)
      Fire Emblem
      Fire Emblem: Binding Blade
      Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones

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

        Semi Correct. Only Fire Emblem, and Sacred Stones, were officially released in English. Binding Blade has a fan patch, but I don’t think it was ever officially translated and brought over, though it’s there if you want to play it on an emulator.

  • DarthBrian

    Was linked to this video recently. It’s a documentary about how Chris Claremont is the best writer ever and how the X-Men comics are nothing without him.

    http://videobam.com/uPXCI

    Pretty much every writer to write any X-Men book after Claremont, with the sole exception of Mike Carey, sucked. I include Joss Whedon in this list.

    Claremont’s writing the new Nightcrawler series that just started up around 6 months ago and it’s pretty good so far. A little more grimdark than I expected a NIghtcrawler book to be but still pretty good. One of the few good X-Men books still being made IMO. I recommend it if you aren’t already getting it.

    Started playing Tales of Vesperia. The game is fun and the cast seems fun especially Yuri. However, I really hate that wolf boss that appears in a hill. It’s unbeatable. It already beat me about 5 times. I thought the Tales games were more mainstream unlike the SMT series that are hard as heck.

      Yup! That’s probably the hardest boss in the game, lol, at least in my opinion. Though I played with some of friends, I had a different strategy. I kept kiting it as Yuri, while my friends killed everything. For whatever reason, it seems the game always aggros the first player or Yuri, at least in my experience.

          SMT 2 was more grindy, than hard, because you could still pull some pretty amazing stuff off if you were underleveled.

    Here’s hoping that Sony will offer another one those buy $50 get $10 deals because my PS+ subscription runs out in about 11 days and I’m hoping they offer one of those before I see something desirable in the Instant Game Collection and re-subscribe anyway. I was actually pondering for 3 good seconds whether or not should I just extend my subscription right away because I initial thought that there are too many good PS+ titles on my HDD to wait that long… until I remembered how many good titles I bought but haven’t played (and that’s not including the backlog sitting on the shelves!) That aside, I was also going through my HDD and threw out a bunch of PS+ game that I finally realized that I am never going to play (too many good titles indeed), to make room for Resident Evil: Revelations. I find it almost funny that I didn’t think of throwing out the PS+ version of Demon’s Souls until the last moment, which I only downloaded because running the game off my HDD is faster than running off the disc.

    I probably won’t be able to post as much like i did this Summer.

    Damn Summer really flew pass by! Managed to back a lot of things, discovered new sites for tons of things as well as learned a lot.

    I’m still practicing my Kanji. Damn i wish i finished all of this last Summer. Now i have to really study hard since my professor is gonna be strict as hell.

    I think i already mentioned this, but each passing score for Kanji tests keeps increasing per test.

    So let’s say passing score for Kanji Test 1 is 70%. It’s gonna go up by 5% till the next test.

    And this is gonna happen every test. There will be tests were the passing score is 100%!!!!!

    DAMN!!!

    The prize for getting a 100% is imported kit kats from Japan. So i guess that’s awesome :)

    In any case, it’s gonna be one hell of a ride for me, but i’m excited to go back to Japanese classes once again ^^

    • OverlordZetta

      Urobuchi only wrote the first three episodes and the basic concept. Kamen Rider Gaim has been his recent project that’s been him.

      • Kuro-Law

        What! I did not know this. Well since he created the sereis im sure he had a part in playing in this ep death.

        • OverlordZetta

          You aren’t supposed to, I think. It’s basically them putting his name on it for the recognition for the most part, not entirely unlike what happened with Gargantia.

          Gaim, though, was entirely him outside of the movies (the Gaim specific movie was done by a friend of his and fellow nitro+ author though), and if you’re a fan of his, you might want to give it a shot.

    Should we should i watch? Haganai or Zero no Tsukaima?

    http://animewallpaperstock.com/wallpaper/03sa/zero-no-tsukaima/zero-no-tsukaima0092.jpg

    Haganai is only two season, while Zero no Tsukaima is i believe 4 season.

    I’ve been meaning to watch some Ecchi or Tsundere for awhile now(the last one i watched was Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou last spring.

    Of course i also have others like Sekirei, Nyan Koi, Kampfer as well.

    So yeah lots of things on my plate X___X

    • OverlordZetta

      ZnT only has two good seasons, so they’re the same length.

      • Anime10121

        Edit whoops meant that as a reply to Prince :/

    • Anime10121

      ZnT’s pretty meh… its a token harem anime with Taiga/Shana with pink hair… Not bad, but definitely not anything to write home about.

      Havent watched Haganai though (dont like its art style) so I cant really say much on that..

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

      Haganai is hilarious

    • OverlordZetta

      Having returned home and now being able to see your pictures, I’ll say Haganai. More fun and doesn’t get terrible halfway through.

    • 이경진 (Lee Kyung Jin)

      I remember reading all of those these a little while ago. I really enjoyed Kampfer and Haganai. While I haven’t seen their anime, I would go for Haganai if you’re going for a comedy fix. The manga really made me laugh. Kampfer has a little of action, and the romance from what I remember was cute.
      I didn’t like Zero or Nyan Koi, since I like my ecchi with a little more…. Substance. And Sekirei just didn’t make sense, with not the best art. Hope that made sense. Again, I need to shorten my comments. :P

I also really want to get Lords of the Fallen when it comes out. Wish I didn’t suck at playing games. You people who are able to play through games so quickly, how the heck do you do it?!

            And they will actually be genetically created by Japanese scientists in a lab…

              And then the Japanese will be wiped out, Kaijuu style, because another of their nuclear plants exploded and caused rampant pokemon mutation.

          • OverlordZetta

            I would be very happy about that considering they cheaped out 70 new ones this gen. They were 100 off from the sweet spot.

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        They can stop making them when we get Pokemon Snap 2 :)

    • OverlordZetta

      I’m not expecting much from the Pokemon announcement, to be honest. A spinoff (hopefully at least more interesting than Art Academy, probably the detective thing) or something unrelated to games more than likely.

      I’m with you Sal. It took me months to beat Tales of Xillia last year (from launch to a week before PAX East this year), and I was backed up BEFORE I got Xillia 2 :P I’m good now FOR MONTHS.

      Oh well, I’m committed to at least finishing off a few games from my backlog. Even decided against picking up something in the Weekend Flash Sale on the PSN – threw my $10 at that ALS thing people keep doing videos for (that I can’t escape from, apparently) instead of Bioshock Infinite.

      I’m determined not to buy anything until I finish at least two games in my backlog. Or until Project Diva F comes out – whichever happens first xD

      I am very skeptical about his comments all of it is just what ifs. Games are becoming more complex if they make their next console a pure cloud gaming device it would need more bandwidth in order to keep up with the new technologies that would be in gaming 8 years from now. If PlayStation Now turns out a success they would most likely consider it but I am not sure if they would commit their next device to it. Though if they are seriously trying to push this agenda then I will be very disappointed it should only be an option not mandatory.

    Really looks interesting, but why is the movement like Heavy Rain. Seriously just give us a choice to run or walk slowly as possible instead of forcing to walk slowly just so you can add some dramatic event that’s gonna happen.

    Kinda wish Dreadout has the same budget as this game.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVxSON-loX8

    Still not convinced about Until Dawn. But will see more gameplay if it’s good or not.

    Not too much though, don’t want to spoil that much.

    At least Evil Within is getting closer and closer by the day!

    • Budgiecat

      Reminds me more of RE Code Vernonica and REmake than Heavy Rain.

      Only thing from it that reminds me of HR from it, is the use of choice, which I think is an excellent game element to infuse in a horror game. over a 1000 branches and 100 different endings.

      and permadeath :P

      • PrinceHeir

        I’m talking about the movement. Even when investigating, the game forces you to walk slowly to observe things instead of letting you do it by yourself.

        It actually breaks the rhythm for me.

        And i thought ADV/VN games don’t have gameplay, yet you like having choice sequences here :P

        Only difference between this and ADV/VN games is that you can move the character while waiting a choice. Premise is still the same!

        And i really don’t buy that 1000 branch and 100 different endings. The 100 endings will probably similar to Corpse Party where one route can lead you to a bad end and counts as a ending.

        So multiple branches leading to multiple bad ends

        There will probably only have 5 endings towards the end where it really changes the story.

        But 100?? Please no way that’s gonna happen.

        • Budgiecat

          well we’ll see about the choices and endings.

          Since you’re playing as the whole cast with permadeath, not sure a quick ‘bad end’ will be the results; since, like Fire Emblem, you have other characters to use…

          Movement can be just the person playing, plus we seen an isolated section of gameplay. there really was no purpose to run in that section..

          • PrinceHeir

            Hmm interesting about the change of cast if someone dies.

            Hopefully they just let us do what we want. I hated in RE6 where the camera shifts out of nowhere just to let us see that something gonna be there.

            It gave me headaches when Ustanak keeps appearing out of nowhere.

            I’ll give Until Dawn a chance that’s for sure.

            • Budgiecat

              well its obvious they shifted to a more old school survival horror approach, as opposed to the hot mess of RE6, ditching 1st person view and the Move

  • bloodiOS

    So there was this older Caucasian male in the store where I worked at today, who walked up to my register after getting everything he needed and said this to my face (after staring at my name tag): “Edward, eh? Shouldn’t your name be Eduardo?” So I started looking at him funny and he followed up with this: “Oh, you’re not Hispanic?”

    I felt like taking a blackjack and whack a damn good one on the back side of this dude’s head. Seriously, it doesn’t matter whether or not am I Hispanic (and I’m not), no one got the fucking right to judge what my name should be! Not even by a person of Hispanic descent, much less by some random Caucasian dude with platinum blond hair and gray eyes! Fuck you, asshole!

    • Pekola

    • MrFinalgamer

      I…think you’re exaggerating a bit there. Granted, maybe he said it in a douchey voice, but taking it at face value, he just made a dumb comment, nothing to get so pissed about IMO…

      • bloodiOS

        Well, it offended me. I mean, come on, I don’t mind it if someone is confused about how my name is pronounced (which, given the fact that I have a name tag, shouldn’t be a problem) but this guy clearly stared at my name tag, and then suggested what my name should be after thinking about which race I belong to. Different people have different levels of tolerance for different types of dumb comments, and this one offended me, simple as that.

    • Elvick

      I don’t see how him being caucasian matters. Idiots come in all colors.

      • bloodiOS

        I would probably feel less offended if those words came out of someone of Hispanic descent. But it came out of someone clearly of a different descent, which is Caucasian in this case, which makes me feel that it was all the more inappropriate. I just feel like listing out the details, it would’ve been the same if the guy was an Asian or African American.

    Ys vs The Legend of Zelda

    Adol

    http://oi57.tinypic.com/20ht5yq.jpg

    Link

    http://oi59.tinypic.com/mb1dz6.jpg

    Which Game and Character do you prefer??

    I always feel some huge similarities between the two. Both came out in mid laties Ys(June 21, 1987) and The Legend of Zelda(February 21, 1986) in Japan.

    Ys focuses more on Gameplay>Adventure>Puzzles

    Zelda emphasize more on Puzzles>Adventure>Gameplay

    You can definitely see Ys is more focused on fast paced gameplay action while Zelda is more on Puzzle as well solving the mysteries of the world.

    Both are games about saving the world.

    Even if Sony doesn’t have an answer to The Legend of Zelda. You know they could have used this franchise to actual go toe to toe with it. And yeah yeah i know these games also have PC releases, but majority of Ys, The Legend of Heroes or Falcolm games in general are being released on PS3/Vita.

    Kinda wish SCEJ as well as SCEA/SCEE would actually give this franchise some support from their respective regions.

    While i’ve seen tons of gameplay from my brother playing the Zelda series. I guess i’ll have to go with Ys. There’s something amazing about this game that The Legend of Zelda doesn’t have,

    Sure Zelda games have those iconic music, themes as well great gameplay. But man when you played Ys. Fast paced movement, Godly metallic soundtrack as well as hard as hell bosses. I’m definitely leaning to this kind of game!

    And yeah Adol just looks more badass than Link(sorry Zelda fans!) He get’s to have harem from girls like Feena and Reah while Link mostly only have Zelda and occasionally others like Midna(yeah i’m going there :P)

    Ys I and II Chronicles are amazing games!!! Definitely feels like Zelda on crack as others say XD

      Well, I will always love the music and the fast paced combat in Ys, but it’s really hard to compare the two. Ys has never really gone “full 3D” in it’s design. There’s nothing worth exploring – Adol just needs to focus on fighting. Ocarina of Time shifted a lot about the Zelda series, and every 3D entry since has felt less like the 2D ones – which is really easy to tell since they keep going back to that design for games like Spirit Tracks and Link Between Worlds.

      In terms of 2D entries, I prefer Ys to Zelda. In terms of 3D, it’s no competition though – Zelda rules :) Ys is straight up about pounding the sh*t out of stuff – way less ambitious than the epic adventures that Link goes on in the 3D entries in Zelda’s series.

      And if it makes you feel any better, Hudson treated it like their Zelda on the Turbografx 16. Never was much of a “Sony” franchise – it was multiplatform to the core back in the day (I believe that the first two games have been ported to 14 platforms), and even now, Falcom still loves developing for the PC in addition to the PS hardware.

      They’re super great though. I love me some YS :)

      • PrinceHeir

        Well the next one is rumored to be :)

        I do agree Zelda focuses more on adventure and discovery the mysteries of Hyrule and the like.

        But man Ys 2D gameplay simply excels everything Zelda has to offer.

        I’m talking about like what Sony is doing with Destiny. Giving proper marketing and making it feel like the best way to experience Destiny is on Playstation consoles(in this case PS4)

        Plus Falcom is niche as hell. Probably the most niche developer out there and they have been just as long in the industry as Square or Nintendo is. They need all the help they need if they want more people to play their games other than Japanese.

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          Oh yeah; that WOULD be neat. Especially for the Vita? That’s definitely something they could co-opt and push a little more than you average 3rd party game, for sure. I bet XSeed would appreciate that ;)

          You know what’s a great comparison point for the 3D Zeldas though, come to think of it? Okami and Beyond Good & Evil. Both of them borrow the core design from 3D Zelda games, tweak them, make them their own with new gameplay mechanics and focusing on different stuff, etc. They are both great, and man… that would make for one difficult choice. 3D Zelda titles vs. Okami vs. Okamiden vs. Beyond Good & Evil. Ouch. That’s tough. :D

          Btw, ever play this Falcom game?

    • Elvick

      Link has no personality really, so Adol.

      edit; forgot games… I guess Zelda,but lately I’m ‘eh’ on 3D Zelda. But I’ve played more LoZ than Ys.

    • Milewide

      I’ve not really enjoyed Zelda since Majora’s Mask. But YS almost always kicks arse. Celceta was a bit too easy, I would say, but it was still a very enjoyable ride! I’m hoping for more on the vita.

      Obligatory music link (we’re talking about YS after all)
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xORX-5LxzrE

      I’m hoping that the new Zelda will prove to be a good one. I’m still holding on to hope… I might even buy a wiiU for it. I believe in Zelda. :)

    • LordKaiser

      This is a tough one so you are making me think a lot. I like both series a lot and they both had one black sheep games. Zelda got The Adventures of Link and Ys got Ys III The Wanderers of Ys (SNES) version.

      I prefer Ys for it’s art style till Ys Seven onwards, I don’t like the new art. Also Ys is more fast passed hack n’ slash and it feels more satisfying and if you play on the PC the monsters bleed and you can see it limbs for a bit after you defeat them. Also the story have more dept in the Ys series.

      Now Zelda is a bit more relaxing and make you think more. I like it’s minimal art and at 1rst I didn’t liked Wind Waker art but now I like it for some reason. I also like the puzzles and the combat may be slower but enemies hits hard and have some defensive mechanism. Zelda game stories tend to be light and in many cases it’s non serious.

      Anyway I went off topic XD Anyways Adol have a consistent back story and Link don’t so Adol FTW!

  • bloodiOS

    Hoping to see more of Stella at TGS (Nomura, please!)
    I’m still partial to how she looks prior to the revision though:

    • MrFinalgamer

      What I REALLY want to see is if that whole city in the E3 trailer is explorable able, or if it’s just VERY pretty arenas, like in Type-0.

      And also, how’s the exploration? The world map should have Chocobos, cars, and airships to move around in, so I would like to see how that works.

      • bloodiOS

        There will be no sight of inhabitants whatsoever, while the only way you can explore the city is to move a limo in a top down view. The only time when the party members can run around an area is during a main mission ;P

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          So, it’s like Kingdom Hearts? It’s Kingdom Hearts – Disney + Advent Children visuals and style, basically ;)

          • bloodiOS

            Nomura sticking to what he knows best xD

            • MrFinalgamer

              So…FFXV will have a bad camera that you’ll be fighting, along side the other kingdom’s army?

        • MrFinalgamer

          After 8+ years of development, and being made on current gen consoles, I swear I’ll do HORRIBLE things, if that’s the case…

          Also, maybe it’s just me, but after how tragic the story in Type-0 seems…I want some more of that! Death, and despair is always something that I appreciate in any story.

          • bloodiOS

            You can’t blame them. Their main programmer has left the project and left a hole too big to fill ;P

        • Budgiecat

          Also cutscenes will be with side by side 3D images of the characters talking to each other Enchanted Arms style, only no animation :P

    • Swellingrabbit

      I just want to see them hook up, cause you know its going to happen.

      Let the fan fiction run wild and free.

      • bloodiOS

        That five guys one girl fan fiction material.

      • Budgiecat

        Everyone knows Claire “Lightning” Farron slept with Microsoft CEO, Gamespot, Gametrailers, IGN & Famitsu journalists first. Original 5 Guys one Girl fiasco..:P

      • new_tradition

        Fanfiction that even include Stella will be scarce for a long while, lol. Nomura knows fujoshis are one of his biggest demographics and he treats us so well :3

        Right now my baseless theory is that Noctis and Stella are related, and she’s gonna hook up with Prompto or Ignis >:D

        • Swellingrabbit

          But I really otp Noctis and Stella, Id really hate it if they were somehow related but I highly doubt that and you know Im still wondering what the line “An act of love by the last king”

          • new_tradition

            Sacrifice is what comes to mind for me personally, but “acts of love” don’t have to mean bad things, so who knows o.o

    • Budgiecat

      true. She looked for womanly and headstrong as opposed to her new girlier look

      • LordKaiser

        But she also looks girly here no?

    • new_tradition

      Part of me still wishes they just released it as Versus XIII for the PS3 (and probably 360 by then) rather then force FFXIII into a series to make money when FFXIV was struggling.

      I remember reading Nomura just got super ambitious with Versus, wanting to do all these things that 7th gen couldn’t handle, er go causing it to get delayed and such. If someone had just stayed on top of him and kept him in line, then maybe…

      But I like the stuff he gets credited for, so I can’t really say anything xD

      • LordKaiser

        That’s why he gets along with Hideo Kojima.

  • Dinoshock

    Warframe’s Corpus and GHOST from Destiny has taken the ice bucket challenge. I hope Joel accepts the next one.

      they should nominate Elsa from Frozen, X-Men’s Iceman, Hyoga and his teacher Camus from Saint Seiya, Touya from Yu Yu Hakusho, toshiro from Bleach, Dio from JJBA and Dark Schneider, simply because, well, he’s a Bastard!

  • PrinceHeir

    Just finished Corpse Party: Blood Covered on PS Vita :)

    Ending was sad, but kinda expected.

    Amazing game! Definitely gonna finish the Extra chapters then go right to Book of Shadows ^^

    Also lots of S-Class Seiyu’s like Miyuki Sawashiro, Asami Imai, Rina Sato, Eri Kitamura, Yuichi Nakamura, Tomokazu Sugita and the like!

    • Sky

      Waiting on a localization…never played a corpse party game before.

  • bloodiOS

    I wonder if Persona 5 will follow a play style similar to P3 and P4 or will it be something different altogether? As much as I like the play style of P3 and P4, I also think that I have enough of that.

    • Gigus

      Noooooooo!!!!!!!! I want something different! Day 1 hard mode difficulty if available.

      • MrFinalgamer

        First boss is a level 99 Matador.

        • Gigus

          Second boss lvl 999 grim reaper, no weaknesses. Bring on the pain!

          • MrFinalgamer

            Third boss is a 1v3, against Margaret, Elizabeth, and Theodore. All level 999.

            • Gigus

              Secret boss is the nose, lvl??????????? Fuck you’re screwed.

              • MrFinalgamer

                Right after that, Philemon, and Nyarlathotep team up, and the true final boss begins, and if beat them, you get….a postcard!

                • Gigus

                  I think the postcard still means death. *shows you the postcard*

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

                  I fought the final boss and all I got was this lousy post card…

      • Budgiecat

        Visually I want it to outdo Catherine

        I also want a return to a more mature approach like Persona 2…

    • MrFinalgamer

      I would like to see the recruitment/negotiation system back. Granted, it would be kind of hard to do, since you fight shadows, instead of demons (unless the great Nyarly comes back), but they were really cool. They really helped to give the characters some more personality, and they were quite amusing in P1, and (specially) 2, with the group contacts, and all.

      Gameplay, as in the turn based stuff…if they could somehow implement Radiant Historia’s battle system in this (which is how P1 should have played), then I would love that.

    • Sky

      The one thing i don’t want to see again is have your turn skipped if enemies hit your weakness. I didn’t like that in the original P3. I’m surely hype to listen to the new music in Persona 5. I wounder if the music/story alone can top P3/P4. I can’t wait to see another teaser trailer about chairs..

      • MrFinalgamer

        If they can get Tadoshi Satomi back on board, they can easily top those 2 stories (then again, topping P4 wouldn’t be hard at all).

        I like the weaknesses, since it makes the whole weakness system seem balanced. If enemies couldn’t do it, then the game would be WAY to easy. What I want, though, is no instant game over, when MC dies. That’s one of the stupidest things to ever be conceived in the JRPG genre.

        • Gigus

          Never really had an issue with that since p3/p4 always remind you that you’re the glue of the group.

          • MrFinalgamer

            My problem is how sometimes the enemies get a BS hama, or mudo skill, and kills the MC (or sometimes, with a group insta kill move, it ONLY kills the MC), and then I get a game over. My reaction is like “Yo, Yukari, mind reviving me with that spell of yours, or just reaching in my pocket, and use a revival bea…no? Okay…”. It’s like, what the hell happens, when the MC dies? Does everyone start running around like headless chicken?

            Plus, in P3 you’re supposed to be a group dedicated to fighting these creatures, and even if Mitsuru, the actual leader, is with you, it’s still a game over. I might buy it in P4…until you realize that when others are downed, they aren’t faced in the slightest, but when you’re down, they just go “FUCK THIS! I’M OUT! Let’s go get some food in Junes! My treat!”.

            /rant

            • Gigus

              XD. I have yet to fully start P3 so yeah XD. We’ll just wait and see what P5 does. That games has been extremely quiet since its announcement.

              • bloodiOS

                One could be positive and says that they’re keeping things tightly under the lid with the intention to keep the experience fresh and unspoiled by excessive exposure and they’re simply going too far with that approach. Or if one wants to approach it in a more pessimistic manner… DELAY INCOMING!!!

                • MrFinalgamer

                  Fun Fact: P3, and 4 were revealed 4 months before their release. So, they either revealed it too early, so people could STFU about it (and because ending that stream, with the Persona 4 milking would have been atrocious), or the game is still on schedule, and we’ll see more on TGS.

                  • bloodiOS

                    People nowadays are so used to having the gaming media digging up and broadcasting details in abundant amount before a game is released that they would freak out when little to nothing is heard about some titles.

                • Gigus

                  As long as the game doesn’t get canned, I’ll be okay. If its a ps4 move, all my yesh!

              • MrFinalgamer

                WAIT! wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait…

                You HAVEN’T played P3!? WHAT!? I would understand P2 (and especially P1, with dem 1st person dungeon crawling *shivers*), since they’re so different…but why haven’t you played P3? You still working your way through P4?

                • Gigus

                  I’m rebounding on p4. Plus, I just moved lol so I can’t really play alotta games at the moment XD

                • Gigus

                  And the story and the fan base of p3 are every where so I couldn’t avoid spoilers.

                  • MrFinalgamer

                    Well, at least you can still tear up by the end, especially when you look up the lyrics for Kimi No Kioku. Plus, there’s a lot of twists that you might not know, so there’s that.

                    And if you REALLY don’t want to play P3…then play P2! It has death, drugs, killers…and a peppy as fuck woman!

                      All persona games are on PSN. I could’ve gotten myself Persona 2: IS and EP for 4.99. That was such a good deal.. i can’t believe i skipped it.

                      Looks like i’m going to buy the game with the soundtrack. Been having my eyes on this game for awhile now.

                      easy way.. download them digitally… persona 3 awaits you… be safe on your journey

                    • Gigus

                      Eh? Guess you’re not entirely familiar with me joking around with MFG. This is kinda of a running joke between me and him so……. Yeah. I will play p1, p2 is, and p2 ep someday. Him not knowing when bothers him since he knows I just started becoming some what of a fan of the series.

                      I already have p3. I bought both the physical copy (limited edition fes) and a digital version (free actually).

              This actually happen in my playthrough.. made me laugh. Silly investigation team.

    • OverlordZetta

      I’d like them to do that style of game again, but really improve on it. 4, much as I love it, didn’t take too many strides forward. I would love to see a really improved version of that kind of game. Choice mattering, social links actually influencing the non-social link scenes, optional party members, multiple endings, the works.

      • Sky

        For some reason, I would like to see P5 in a dark tone story with multiple endings that feels sad or very dark. I’m it will deliver everything we desire. Curious to see that new engine.

        • OverlordZetta

          I dunno if they can go too far from the new “Persona” image that 3 and 4 established, but I’d definitely like multiple endings, especially if they came from fleshed out routes instead of a branched off choice near the end.

          • Sky

            The only thing i’m worried about in the new persona would be how everything is going to be. I would like everything to be longer and have my social links progressed even further. Its pretty interested to see persona evolve higher, of course, that’s just my own opinion. So as the director would say, it should feel right at home for us persona fans. I’m dying to see how better Shinji Meguro has improved his music.. i wish TGS would hurry up already.

            Btw, just don’t make the grinding stuff easy like in persona 4 golden. I had no problem beating the whole. Let alone use my party members.

        • Kobracon

          Aw man I hope not….to me thats what SMT is for, those are dark, I want Persona to be a lighter SMT…

          • Sky

            Honestly, it wouldn’t hurt to try new things in persona 5. Since we are getting a brand new engine for the game, it should be nice to include a new dark story to make it more interesting. The concept of “freedom” already has me interested. I can’t wait to have a closer look on the cast… however, ultimax, dancing all night awaits for me to see how P4 ends.

            • Kobracon

              But that doesn’t sound ‘new’ to me when its just going back to its SMT roots. Thats not trying something new. Persona 3 and 4 being all bright and (sorta) happy is SMT trying something new and it worked so well!

    • Samsara09

      6 years have passed.I hope they try something more intriguing.Perhaps because I haven’t played P3 and P4 when they released,and was spoiled by PS3 games,i can’t connect well with them.

              Hmm must have missed that. Sorry.

              By the time I get a ps4, I might just install a 3tera. It’s so far in the future.

              • Gigus

                Yeah it was my first comment. Maybe if I said download again when I want to play them then, your comment would have meaning.

                That future doesn’t seem long since 3 TB is dropping in price in terms of regular HDDs.

          Because throwing hyperbole aside, it’s not a bad design. Maybe not something a stealthy!batman would wear, but cool nonetheless.

          • Budgiecat

            that would be horrible for stealth lol

            • LordKaiser

              Batman wear non stealthy suits sometimes for special occasions like Iron Man.

              • Budgiecat

                I’m saying that suit looks horrible for…..anything :P

                • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

                  Not if Batman needs to win a Japanese cosplay competition to defeat the Joker, Budgie — isn’t he supposed to be prepared for anything?

                  Actually, I think even he would just call Superman to throw Joker into the Sun than wear that atrocity
                  ( ^ – ^ )

    • Kobracon

      I love the suit though…..he looks like Mecha Batman, and thats my dreams literally made true D:

    A 3D cel shaded remake of Grandia for PS4 looking just like this would be cool…

      And Budgie’s cel shaded fetish pops back up…because cel shading makes everything too awesome for words.

      • Budgiecat

        Look here, steakhead.

        I didn’t ask for your 8 bit opinion, ya 2 dimensional sprite bucket…

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

          I prefer 3d models, actually, not cel shaded garbage.

          • Budgiecat

            see above

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

              Cel shading *is* basically creating a 2D model, Budgie, if only in appearance. The entire point of “Cel shading” is that it obscures the depth factor with different shading.

              I rather have actual models, that look the part. <_<

              • Budgiecat

                problem?

    • 罪罰

      I very much look forward to any project using cel shading for the new consoles. The polygon count, shading and environmental lighting improvements over the past 3 years will make games look almost almost like 2d drawings at this point.

      Though it depends on the 3d model, animation system. CC2 at the very best might be able to show a Naruto game with AA.

    • new_tradition

      I love these post-battle skits. There so campy and silly, but they always make me smile xD

      • Kattaro

        Me too, when the new shows up I always wait until it finish. And when you have the same battle x time it’s nice change when new shows up.

        • new_tradition

          I know, right? I saw Alvin and Ludger do their gun pose, and Alvin said something completely different a few times, haha. Makes me wonder if there’s alternate dialog for all the “generic” endings.

          Although now I wish the games had some type of theatre mode for all the possible post-battle skits.

          There’s so many possibilities since they vary between the characters you have and such :O

          • Kattaro

            Yeah I know I also wonder that if you play a second time with no mute Ludger then probably the amount of this post battle skits will increase a lot more. Even the same skits that we have now but with Ludger voice.

    • Sky

      Can’t wait to pick up my copy tomorrow.

    • 이경진 (Lee Kyung Jin)

      Me too! I really like the changes from the first one! Ludger feels like three characters in one, which is kind of cool. :)

      • Kattaro

        I also like the changes in Tales of Xillia 2 and I think thanks to that I enjoy sequel more. I also like the system of choices. Sometimes I really don’t know which one is better and I just pick a option which I would choose if I were in Ludger position. Also Welcome to Gematsu :)

    • Kobracon

      Hows the dub? Tales of Graces F’s dub really put me off….and I really like the combat system too…

      • Kattaro

        Well I think is very good I didn’t hear japanese version so I thankfully can’t compare them. Because I would think that japanese version is better and I would complain about english dub :P

        • Kobracon

          I never heard Graces’ JP voices but goddamn the dub is lame….

        No!!! Someone resuscitate me PLEASE D':

        • Gigus

          Nup.

          On a serious note since its all the rage here on gematsu.

          Aren’t you a little worried that mother base invasion is mgo3? Guess I’m assuming to early but it would have been nice if they clarified if mgo3 is still being planned.

          • Anime10121

            I’ve beeen saying that for the longest… MGO3 was supposed to be developed by KPLA, but we havent seen ANYTHING from it :/

            I do remember Kojima once saying that they may be released separate from each other, but the fact that we haven’t see anything at all from it leads me to believe its been canned, especially since this new “tower defense multiplayer” thing has come out…

            • Gigus

              Separate release? Tower defense? Canned? Fuck that, that and that if true. The least they can do to spice up the tower defense-esque type multi player is to allow friends to join in like sneaking mode and team sneak from mgo2.

              • Anime10121

                It’d be nice…but I’m not sure what to expect on the multiplayer anymore… the single player is set to blow my frekin mind, but as far as mulitplayer goes… lets just say my anticipation isnt exactly trailing upwards anymore :(

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

      Clannad blows, so I don’t mind it being on Steam.

      • Anime10121

        But blowing steam is cool, thats why everybody loves steampunk :V

    • new_tradition

      I see a lot of people are excited for it, but I don’t know anything about it. I read something about it being really sad and tragic.

      Is it a kind of game where you have romantic options with other girls, or something more generic like friendship.

      Or even just a game with one conclusion and you get bad endings along the way?

      • Anime10121

        First, just to clarify (dont know if you know or not) but its a Visual Novel, its romantic, tragic, silly, and happy (at least in the anime’s case, which is fairly representative).

        If you dont like VN’s (I dont generally either, but its Key, and its Clannad, so I’m hype), do yourself a favor and watch Clannad and its sequel AfterStory. They are a really good watch :)

      Knock him on all fours and look one up.

      • Gigus

        I know what a beetle looks like lol. I’m just saying give a closer observation on its horn and it looks like a metapod. You don’t have to do much besides move his eyes higher near the points.

        • OverlordZetta

          And?

          It’s a beetle Pokemon and it looks like a beetle. Similarities Metapod aren’t relevant here one way or the other, and the idea that they ripped of Metapod (implied by the “real creative” comment) rather than what the Pokemon is based off of is silly.

          • Gigus

          On a serious note: I forgot about that hours ago till you brought it up. Still not bothered by it though, just shocked. As far as ffxiv goes are you logging on PC or PlayStation? If its PlayStation, you can thank the alleged “hackers” for that.

            • new_tradition

              Nah, FFXIV has it’s own world, characters and lore going for it. Not to mention gameplay is pretty different if I recall correctly.

              I don’t think you’re gonna get the same feeling playing other FF games.

              • 罪罰

                That you are correct, but are the quests easy for just 1 player? I haven’t been lucky enough to play that game but I’ve been meaning to.

                • new_tradition

                  I only played the free month myself when I got it last year, so my info is probably outdated, but there are missions you can do yourself, but I dunno if you’re allowed to solo dungeons yet. I remember if your level was too high, you’d get synced down to match it or something…

                  If ever they wanted to make FFXIV an offline experience, I imagine the game would get a lot of rebalancing. Probably make a mandatory party to tag along with your MC or whatever.

            I can see what you mean by an offline component to the game; however, if they did that, it really wouldn’t work.

            FFXIV is a fullblown MMO. It’s not really a hub based game like PSO or WKC or something. You really couldn’t have an equal experience with an offline version or offline components.

            At least, that’s how I feel about it..

        • LordKaiser

      • new_tradition

        Right, I need to confess, I’m only partially aware of this current story.

        This is what I think I know: she had sexual relations with men in gaming journalism, which people have concluded was a means to get good press for her game or something. Is that right?

        Using money or your body for good reviews and such isn’t a new thing, so what makes this case so special? Is it the person herself? Is she shown to be some hypocrite in some capacity?

        I had no idea who she was before this story, so I wanna know what her impact is exactly.

        • Budgiecat

          Its more on the game journalists then just her.

          You know, that whole moral integrity and non bias thats supposed to be in journalism *chuckles*

          • new_tradition

            Thanks for the response. Just kind of confuses me that her name is what shows up a lot, so I’m like “why am I supposed to care about one person???”

      Nah. My hatred of the format, and Beyonce and Taylor Swift, keep me from caring much. I’ll hear about stuff and check out Youtube videos after the fact… much like how Talk Shows are nowadays. I don’t really watch Conan, for instance, but I watch clips on Youtube from the show.

      I just can’t deal with the format, commercial breaks and the “MTV-ness” of it all, even if I like most of the lineup there this year. However pumped I’ll be for Eminem or Usher will immediately evaporate when I have to watch one commercial for Teen Mom 76 or “Our attempt to recreate those Jersey Shore ratings this next season”, y’know?

    “Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro, the Access Games madman behind Deadly Premonition, gave a rabble-rousing keynote on lessons to learn from foreign developers, explaining that the key to success for games such as The Walking Dead is that they try something new.

    “You’re independent, so you might as well act independently,” chided Swery. “If your game is unique you will no longer be in direct competition with larger publishers, and your game will have a longer shelf life. And just because your next-door neighbour doesn’t want your game, that doesn’t mean you’ve failed – someone across the other side of the world might be dying to play your game.”

    Really cool browser-based action game to check out for a few minutes – “Grapple Force Rena” (trailer below). It really is like a classic Sega game mixed with a web comic (the plan is to release a new level every week starting at the end of the month). Also, grappling hooks! With physics like in Umihara Kawase! It’s fun – check it out!

      Legend of Dragoon, man. That’s my shit.

      • 罪罰

        I’ve never played that one, though it looks really badass.

        • Ghost Doge

          Love that game. I play it at least once a year if not more and I’m still not tired of it yet. Haven’t played it recently though so I should change that. The additions system in that game is one of my favorite things.

          • 罪罰

            I bet it’s super expensive and rare, shucks. I don’t want to resort to the naughty things. I only do it for churazy japanese games that never came here like (Policenauts).

          • 罪罰

            I wouldn’t go to such lengths, the game is too clunky! It’s charming and pretty even today but those controls. What. where. they. thinking. (MML1 specifically)

      • Elvick

        That’s why I settled for MM 64, got it new for like $30 or less, don’t remember exactly

        • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

          ugh. Me too. Such a cruddy port, especially considering it came out in 1999 or 2000 or something. The audio mix is all over the place, the frame rate never approaches anywhere near consistent, the draw distance… ok, well that was bad in the PSX version too. But still.

          Good thing people can see now PAST all the myriad technical failings and see that Legends was a great game. MM64 is hardly the ideal version to play, but it gets the job done and shines through in a pinch :)

          • Elvick

            Yeah, it gets the job done. Though I did download the PSone versions. I also imported the PSP versions too. I feel justified downloading ISO/roms of games I have. Don’t feel bad then, and if they could be released digitally I’d have bought them easy.. But we can’t. :(

            I wish I could own the PSone versions and Tron Bonne though. It’d be so nice. :(

      Threads of Fate. Everything about that game just reminds me of what’s so great about Japanese games – wonderful music, bright & colorful art, great characters. I mean, it’s an action-RPG, but that just means it reminds you about platforming and fighting in addition to fun rpgs. It hits, like, all the bases for retro games that I’m looking for – though Klonoa is a close second there :)

      But I still love me some Wild 9, Wild Arms, Silhouette Mirage and Parasite Eve xD

    • PrinceHeir

      Hard to choose

      MGS1, Parasite Eve, Castlevania, Bloody Roar 2, Tekken 3 etc

      I would say MGS1 since it opened my eyes on what gaming can become in the near future. Amazing stealth gameplay at its time, fun boss fights, amazing music, even the English voice acting is pretty good especially during the time where dubs suck donkey balls.

      • 罪罰

        MGS1 always feels “right” you know? It’s like the perfect blend of gameplay and cinematic goodness. It’s outdated but it’s still handles it’s pacing far better then later entries. It’s just that magic charm.

        • PrinceHeir

          Yup!

          I also replayed the game last summer 2013 along with MGS2 and MGS3.

          Game is still awesome, but there was some input lag on the PSN version.

          Still amazing game!! I kinda wish more games had this artstyle.

          I don’t know, but there’s something unique about the game’s artstyle and atmosphere that blends well in gameplay.

I had just checked too and it was like a hour left. It felt like forever had passed, but it had only been 20 minutes. D;

    Otakuthon Sunrise Panel Roundup

    http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2014/08/24-1/otakuthon-sunrise-panel-roundup

    Some important notes:

    Starting with recent projects, Code Geass Akito The Exiled is now 4 episodes deep and is still in production, with comments suggesting that the production is being drawn out due to the heavy activity on the production side of the company. One current series that was confirmed for future North American availability is Aikatsu, which will begin streaming with English subs through Daisuki in Canada starting next month. Sunrise also detailed its October Fall season titles:

    Q: For Valvrave, why did things get rushed toward the end?
    A: From the first moment, we planned to make 2 halves… the first season was meant to be an introduction, and the second season was meant to be the problems in the world.

    Q: Gundam in Reconguista in NA?
    A: Working on making it available in NA streaming few days after broadcast, plans not finalized yet.

    Q: GBFT originally planned or due to the popularity of GBF?
    A: Original version only planned for Gundam Build Fighters, but since it became very popular, the studio decided to produce more

    Q: (Question about series length)
    A: Prefer to make more than 26 episodes, because the energy to put into the production is the same for 13 or 26. So that’s why the company prefers to make longer series, so we can divide up the cost, it’s more efficient to make a lot. Also, another big reason is that Sunrise is backed by Bandai Namco. And since Sunrise anime normally have figures, toys or other products, having 26 eps gives them 6 months to develop the products.

    Q: Can you say anything about the Love Live movie?
    A: The content is something that Love Live fans will really love.

    Q: Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere S3?
    A: No plans right now

    Q: Second season of Daily Lives of High School Boys?
    A: I was producer of it… and right now, there are no plans for a second season…

    Q: New season of Gintama or waiting for the series to get further?
    A: Company secret.

    Aikatsu on west!!

    I have no where to vent this out, so I’ll just do it here… lawd Lil’ Kim needs to chill the fuck out. K. Michelle said something about Nicki Minaj being queen of rap and Lil’ Kim’s pressed stans came for her, so she told them off.

    The Lil’ Kim throws a tantrum about it like she was coming for her. Pfft. Have a seat. Hell, as she was telling off her fans K. Michelle said she loves Lil’ Kim and can like both.

    Sheesh. Just because some parts of you aren’t adult yet, doesn’t mean you’re not well over 18. Calm your tits.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      First off, lol. “Just because some parts of you aren’t adult yet…” – that made me laugh :)

      Secondly, eh. What else is new. This is how some people get publicity nowadays. Hissy-fits are annoying, but they get some people to pay attention to you. Before this whole situation, I can’t really remember Lil’ Kim doing anything newsworthy since… wasn’t she a judge on America’s Best Dance Crew?

      I think she just needs the attention. At least we can hope for some diss tracks to come out of this — been awhile since we got great music out of a feud. Like Nas vs. Jay Z? Man, feuds today suck.

      • Elvick

        Lil’ Kim has made a few diss tracks already though. And I don’t think they’ve helped her any. I think she’s just done, as far as popularity goes. She clearly still has some kind of fanbase… :P

        But she needs to accept her time to shine is over. All the diss tracks have done so far is make her non-fans laugh at her and call her desperate.

        I don’t know if she’s a judge on that show or not, I vaguely remember a commercial or two but don’t remember anything other than the name.

        It probably was for some kind of attention though. Which is just sad. lol

    • Willgaea

      Your last paragraph threw me off. I guess the only way some parts could be over 18 if your under 18 would mean that you had a transplant from someone over 18.

    13 years ago today Aaliyah passed. ): Makes me sad. I loved her music and her acting. It would’ve been interesting to see where she went in life. Her death, along with the others on the plane [minus the pilot], were senseless losses. It frustrates me and saddens me to think about.

    My favorite thing about her music is her effortless vocals. Her tone is just so perfect, she never over-sang on anything like many female artists tend to do. People may not think she is great vocally, but I think knowing to keep it lowkey is more important than power. There are plenty of artists I like who I would love more if they’d tone it down a little.

    *sigh* RIP Aaliyah

      R.I.P. girl

      I really miss 90’s/early 00’s r&b and hip hop artists, man. The sound back then was just unbelievable, and the artists were so memorable. Too many wannabe thugs and “gangstas” out there now, who can’t compose sh** or sing or write interesting lyrics. Haven’t lived enough to even experience things worth singing about. Just wanna get rich quick, and then die young.

      I heard Suge Knight got shot tonight at a Chris Brown a VMA party. smh.

      • Elvick

        I’m happy with plenty of music now, but I do love the sound from back then. Something about it is just so perfect. And I would love for more music to sound like it.

        We Need A Resolution is far better to me, than songs now. Even though I do love many recent songs dearly. The production on it is just so masterful though. I mean, I’ve never heard anything like it.

        But even if people do make music that sounds like it’s from that era, people won’t be happy. People always complain. I see people say things are outdated and “old” if they sound classic. Yet, every damn video I go to of an old song people are bitching about it not being “the same”. I know it’s not really the same people, though some could be, but lawd is it annoying all the same.

        Plus, I miss R&B and hip-hop being popular. Now it’s only pop that’s popular. And it’s a shame, and the only hip-hop that’s popular is hip-pop. Not real hip-hop. It’s lame. I like some hip-pop, but people keep confusing it with real hip-hop. And it’s frustrating to see someone who makes that kind of music be called “Queen” or “King” of Hip-Hop. Bleh, no.

        But the audience who likes R&B and real hip-hop don’t buy as much music as the mainstream pop audience does. So, what can you do. Never ending struggle.

        Oh, you should check out Ginette Claudette and Tinashe.

        Two of my favorite artists atm. Here’s some links to their free mixtapes. Ginette has an album out on iTunes now too, and Tinashe’s comes out soon.

    I watched a bunch of movies but what really stand out as of this day is anime-film Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. I really love it! Amazing animation and visuals from Studio Madhouse.

    I really love the western/sci-fi/steampunk settings mixed with dark fantasy (creatures like vampires, werewolves, etc.).

      Aw yeah. Mad House’s Vampire Hunter D is amazing. Good one to check out! Just mentioning it makes me wanna check it out again xD

      • z_merquise

        Oh yeah! I really want to watch it again along with Redline. Madhouse made so many quality animation for both TV series and movies.

        I found that Vampire Hunter D is actually a long-running novel and that the movie is just an adaptation from one of its books,

    • Elvick

      I love Vampire Hunter D. And to think the only reason I bought the novels was because Amano’s art. xD

      • z_merquise

        You’re collecting the books for this series? That’s cool.

        Yoshitaka Amano did collaborate with writers like Neil Gaiman (Sandman: The Dream Hunters) and Greg Rucka (Wolverine/Elektra) as an illustrator as well.

        • Elvick

          I’ve been meaning to watch the movie. I have it, but… backlog is my life. :P

          • z_merquise

            You should watch it soon. It’s really good.

      I’m alright in games and I’m terrible at Goldeneye… and I played it back then too. The controls are so goofy to get used to again for me. (granted I didn’t play THAT much of it, so maybe people who’ve played a lot can get into it easier)

      I don’t wanna go back to that shit. :P

      How far gaming has come. I lubs it. Generally.

      • Budgiecat

        All I can think of when you said that is how worse Perfect Dark Zero for XBox 360 was compared to the N64 original, what a travesty Goldeneye Reloaded was, and how no one bought 007 Legends lol

    Lots of little scenes as always. Plenty of high emotions from various characters to boot.

    So Motochika isn’t totally alone, Kasuga is Oichi’s plaything, Magoichi wants to fuck up Oda, Yukimura and Masamune talk about their feelings, Mitsunari keeps his anger in check (I suspect this might be a trend; he did it last episode too…), Ieyasu flashbacks to when he and Mitsunari were bros (and they showed Mitsunari smiling, omg *_*)…

    We finally round off with Yukimura giving Mitsunari a pep talk, and both he and Ieyasu have speeches with their men about the upcoming battle.

    And holy moly, this show isn’t even trying to hide the fact it’s going off on the more fantasy route. It’s one thing to see the main characters defeats all those little mooks like in the past, but we’re getting Dragonball Z level attacks now, power-up cries and everything, lmao.

    Side note: My boy Sanada really stepped it up the last few episodes. He’s coming off so mature and gutsy without his usual cringe-worthy hyper rashness.

    He’s growing up ;_;

    Can anyone tell me how to transfer your Dragon’s Crown PS3 Save to PS Vita?

    I went to the PS Plus page before starting your game, but i can’t download my save for some reason.

    • z_merquise

      Just launch your game and in the main menu of the title screen, you can see “Upload Save Data” and “Download Save Data”.

      First, choose “Upload Save Data” and once done, launch your Dragon’s Crown Vita and this time choose “Download Save Data” and that’s it. I find it simple and faster.

      No need to use PS+ for it.

    Been a while. How’s it going guys?
    Recently, I’ve taken time to watch more movies. I’ve seen X-Men Days Of Future Past and The Amazing Spider Man 2.
    I’m really excited for TASM 3. Simply because of the upcoming Sinister Six movies, the Venom Carnage Movie and the Black Cat movie.
    I can’t wait to see X-Men Apocalypse either. DOFP was awesome and fixed a lot of things for me.
    Avengers Age of Ultron is shaping up too. That and Batman Vs. Superman Dawn of Justice (That Wonderwoman though). The problem is, all these movies come out in 2015-2018. TASM 3 got pushed back to 2018 because of the spinoffs.

    • Martian Wong

      I watched the Need For Speed Movie. It was awesome. I am not a fan of racing car movies. But I liked it. I am also excited for X men Apocalypse. I loved the anime series where they all fought with the Apocalypse. And I am still patiently waiting for Final Fantasy XV and hoping it will show up at either Sony Press Conference that is taking place on September 1 or TGS next month.

      • EX+

        TGS is the best bet.

  • Budgiecat

    Hah found this post on another site:

    ” The Japanese language is heavily based on inflection which makes it sound more emotive than it really is and quite often the emotions are actually being conveyed wrong.

    Most Japanese voice acting also uses a theatrical style where emotions are intentionally overdone. It’s not copied by English dubbing because it sounds ridiculous in a language you understand. Some of the worst dubs are the ones that copy the style too much (like Richard in Tales of Graces. He was actually acting really close to the Japanese version.)”

    thoughts?

    • PrinceHeir

      It is intentional, but i don’t agree with them saying the emotions are conveyed wrong.

      Actually their conveying it right. In fact they’re conveying it too much that it get’s over the top in some cases.

      And lol the worst dubs are usually the ones that strayed off to the original script and trying to do their own thing instead of sticking to the original one.

      Problem with most dubs is that they don’t have context of the situation or what the original director’s and creators are trying to convey.

      They have to rely on some random ADR Director who has a narrow point of view of things and are basing on what he sees instead of what the creators are trying to tell.

      This is why jokes in Japanese are always bad when trying to mimic in English and in some cases they’ll have to create completely new ones that’s not from script like what Atlus US did with Persona or Capcom wtih Gyakuten Saiban.

      Best case scenario is just learn the language and not deal with any of this crap which i’m doing right now.

      That way, you can actually understand the actual story by the creators instead of relying on translator which aren’t bad, but in some cases they remove too many details or simplify things since Japanese love to put lots of small details before getting their point across.

      Fan translations are good since they generally stick to the script unless they like to troll like other fansubbers like gg, horriblesubs or even the person who did Corpse Party Blood Covered PSP translation. So many errors in the game, but at least the main point is being covered.

      • Budgiecat

        Well yeah, the lost in translation script editing can def be a problem, but that’s a separate issue really

        Here’s another:

        “Aspiring Japanese actors and actresses are obviously trained in stage acting and not TV acting. Stage acting is meant to be big and exaggerated so that audience members in the back of the theater can see, hear, and appreciate the stage action. TV acting should be far more subtle because the camera puts the audience in close proximity to the players. Over-acting is unnecessary. Watch an American TV show from the 1950s, and you’ll see plenty of stage acting. Fortunately, we matured out of it. Japan hasn’t yet.

        Most Japanese actors and actresses tragically overact. It’s so obnoxious that any shred of entertainment value remaining drips directly from the abysmal performance. It’s like watching bad karaoke. It’s so bad it’s entertaining (for the first 3 minutes).”

          Funny, i actually think stage actors in Japan can’t act so well during Anime shows, but do so well in live TV acting.

          For example, i notice a lot of Ghibli movies felt unnatural and just realized and found out that they don’t actually use professional seiyuu’s and instead would use live action actors.

          I do like some of their JPN voices like Nausicaa and Whisper of the heart, But in some cases like Ni No Kuni really felt kinda off in some scenes when compared to the English one.

          And this guy is probably been watching too many moeblob shows and thinks all shows should have serious acting and removed all the over the topness because it feels “kiddy” for him.

          Watch shows like Ghost in the Shell, Ergo Proxy, Psycho Pass, Noir, Phantom, Golgo 13, and the like if he wants some serious stuff.

            Actually that guy wasnt talking about Anime at all, but live action tv:

            • new_tradition

              Then that definitely makes sense to me.

              The few Japanese live-action shows/movies I tried to watch (emphasis on “try”) really over did it on the dramatics. It’s like they were trying to replicate anime. Felt so fake :/

              However, this isn’t limited to just Japanese entertainment. A lot or Indian Bollywood movies have very over the top characters in them. There’s very few movies that have characters acting like real people IMO.

              But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like over-the-top occasionally. I think it’s just more of a balance issue then

    • 罪罰

      That’s the basic gist, being complemented by your post below. My favorite voice acting is the one in Summer Wars/Wolf Children because it is natural. I really really can’t stand the over the top dialogue, Ping Pong and Tatami Galaxy are one of my favorites due to this too.

      • PrinceHeir

        Love Wolf Children!

        I feel like movies like this really shows how actual Japanese speak and talk as well as convey their actual emotions.

        I don’t agree on stopping the over the topness completely. I like that and i’m sure others also do, but i do wish we have a balance of both and not removing one or the other.

        Tatami Galaxy feels good too!! It’s like after a busy day you go watch it and it feels like your having a conversation with your friend in a late night pub.

        I do admit i kinda fall asleep in some episodes(had to rewind it again since i don’t want to miss it) since some of the dialogues are really REALLY long. But i really appreciate this kinda of shows where your talking in a normal way, something you would actual hear in an everyday conversation in Japan.

    Slapping the Tower Knight’s theme on Tidus’ laughing scene (muted) in FFX makes it unbelievable epic. Truly the most epic “HA HA HA HA HA HA” I have ever heard.

  • MrFinalgamer

    So Breaking Bad nearly swept all of the awards in the emmys. As much as I wanted Dinkladge to win the award, this was a nice goodbye to a brilliant show, like Breaking Bad.

    • Budgiecat

      damn….VMA’s, Emmy’…. I really dont watch tv anymore…miss everything. oh well lol

      • MrFinalgamer

        Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones should be on top of your ‘To Watch’ list. Just sayin…

        • Budgiecat

          they have crossed my mind yeah

          Shouldnt you have added Walking Dead, 24 and the Wire?

          (lol you’re talking to someone who hasnt dedicated free time to watching a non Anime tv series in YEARS)

          • MrFinalgamer

            Walking Dead is weird. Sometimes its REALLY good, but oders…not so much. If you can get past that, and how badly they adapted some characters *cough*Andrea*cough*, you’re good to go.

            I’ve haven’t seen The Wire, or 24, actually. =P

          • PrinceHeir

            In addition to The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad

            Go watch Prison Break,24,

            Chuck,Dexter,House,

            Supernatural,Hannibal,True Detective,Buffy the Vampire Slayer,Charmed,

            • Budgiecat

              You left out OZ, “V”, Salem’s Lot and Roots! (lol last 3 were REAL old school :P)

              • PrinceHeir

                OZ is the prison show right?

                Man back then it scared the hell out of me seeing those tattoos and gangstars in commercials.

                • Budgiecat

                  yeah

                  Oh yeah, isnt there a new prison show featuring women? Orange is new black or something?

            • Budgiecat

    I just feel like sharing this piece written by Callum Rakestraw:

    http://www.freedomcgc.com/the-haunting-brilliance-of-demons-souls-music

    THE HAUNTING BRILLIANCE OF DEMON’S SOULS’ MUSIC

    Demon’s Souls is a game of little music. For the greater part of its long, trying journey, you hear next to nothing. The sounds of the environment control the aural, granting an unnerving glimpse at what lies ahead through footsteps, growls, screams, and clanging metal. Yet despite its absence from the spotlight, the music is what stands out.

    Demon’s Souls’ score is understated. Its goal is to set atmosphere and terror. The dark, drab tone of the world casts a suffocating sense of dread and unease, which the game’s few arrangements reinforce heavily by limiting their use and avoiding an abundance of bombastic compositions. In battle, its soundtrack maintains a low, steady hum. It eschews fast, hard-hitting beats to avoid playing up its bosses’ strengths — contrary to most games.

    Traditionally, games make out boss battles to be grand encounters, invoking a “let’s do this!” sort of tone to get you pumped and ready to go. Sweeping orchestras with undertones of danger or straight-up rock ‘n’ roll beats are employed to set the mood as the camera pans across the field with cinematic flair. It all works to get you lost in the action. You watch closely with glee as the fight rages on, which grows more and more grand by the second.

    Demon’s Souls is the exact opposite. Rather than build excitement, Demon’s Souls instills dread. The flow of battle is more methodical and calculated… not at all slow but far more stressful. One mistake is all it takes to be slain. The music reflects this appropriately, grounding almost every track in very hush tones to keep the tension high.

    Steadily, the music builds from a low hum to brief spurts of booming, quickened notes before quieting once more. It doesn’t dynamically follow the flow of battle, though, its highs often arrive at just the right moments, whether that be the very second you see the creature you’re tangoing with or just as the beast tries its hand at crushing you (often quite literally). All throughout, the score keeps up an air of mystery and trepidation, never overstating the threats you face.

    Only in a few specific cases does the game resort to a more forceful style: when the scale and power of the foe shouldn’t be understated (such as when fighting Tower Knight, a gargantuan suit of armor backed up by archers surrounding the pit in which it rests) or the atmosphere demands it.

    Organs wail while dueling a swift and mighty swordsman setting the tone for what amounts to be the perfect final battle. The scene, an empty throne room overlooking the entire palace, invokes optimal conditions for a long, epic struggle. In another, the percussion is barely audible at first, intensifying a horrifying sense of fighting an airborne foe in pure darkness, but then it suddenly jumps in volume in an attempt to startle, especially so as the chimera lunges forward and nearly knocks you off the precarious bridge on which you stand.

    Out of context, each track sounds like something out of a horror film. It’s easy to imagine certain themes cast against suspenseful scenes. And that’s why it works so well in Demon’s Souls because the music acts as the perfect complement to the harsh gameplay and drab world. Epic orchestral compositions would have clashed even if they brought more energy to the proceedings.

    One track worth mention: “Return To Slumber,” one of the ending themes. After all is said and done, the demons vanquished and fog receding, one last piece of music begins. A soft voice cues up as slow, calming movements seep in. It takes on a lullaby-like quality. The credits roll, leaving you to reflect on your many victories and failures while the song carefully puts you at ease. Finally, you can rest, relax. In a game riddled with tension, it is the perfect note to end on.

    Dell is gonna be bringing at least one new piece of hardware to TGS – the Alienware Alpha Steam Machine. From Senpai Gamer:

    “Dell going to brings to the Tokyo Game Show 2014 (starts on September 18 in Japan, Tokyo) the ALIENWARE Alpha next-generation Steam console. With the announcement the pre-order also started on the Amazon Japan for the console but the price and the release date unknown at the moment. During the Tokyo Game Show 500 titles will be available on the ALIENWARE Alpha what you can try!”

    That’s this one. This is gonna be the first big show a Steam Machine has shown up at in 2014, isn’t it? Wonder if they’ll have the updated controller.

    Man, seeing these kinds of awesome-looking games coming exclusively to Japanese arcades nowadays just baffles me. I mean, why not later port these kinds of designs later to downloadable networks? Every time I see a Border Break Union, or a Shining Force Cross: Raid, or this, I just think, “That would be a great downloadable title on PSN or Steam or something”.

    I mean, I suppose Namco’s Rise of Incarnates and Codebrush Games’ Archeblade are exactly what I’m talking about. But it still just seems too rare. These games look awesome – I really wish they’d leave the arcade so non-Japanese players could check them out more easily.

    • Budgiecat

      they’re also bringing back classic old arcade games like SF II to Japanese arcades…

      I think Pachislo/Pachinko is whats able to keep arcades alive still over in Japan.

      that and a lack of interest in home console gaming and playing online on em…

      • PrinceHeir

        Shame their not using Alpha 3 Max(Double Upper) because it got rid of the BS infinites and glitches which a lot of Japanese didn’t like since it removed on what made the series interesting in the first place.

        Shame really, i want to see Karin and Yun in Alpha 3 with high level play!

    • PrinceHeir

      Nice you mentioned Border Break, but why not Steel Chronicle?? :P

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

      I’ve been telling this for years!!

      Gunslinger Stratos 2, Border Break, Steel Chronicle all needs to come to consoles.

      These are the kind of arcade shooters i want instead of the typical garbage TPS games i’m seeing.

      • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

        Well, obviously PrinceHeir, it’s because… I never heard of this one :)

        But also, it IS getting downright annoying to keep up with Japanese arcade games when they look so friggin’ fantastic, but Japanese publishers generally REFUSE to acknowledge that downloadable networks are a great outlet for this kind of stuff EVERYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD.

        Jeez though, Steel Chronicle looks awesome TOO! I haven’t enjoyed a mech shooter in, at least, a generation because we don’t see enough like this!

        *breaks down weeping*
