General Discussions / Travel in Japan
« on: March 19, 2017, 10:44:58 AM »
In about 2 months we will be spending more than a week in japan. Actually first we will be in hong kong and will bet to tokyo from there. Then its three nights in tokyo then three nights in Kyoto before heading back to tokyo to return to HK.

So besides the usual suggestions for good parks and events, etc I have questions about getting around in Japan.

We are using narita airport. Is that airport hooked up to the main metro/subway line that services the whole city or is it seperate? If i buy a rail pass will it work on the metro as well as the high speed rail between cities?

I know zero japanese but my +1 is fluent in Chinese and can read some of japanese kanji. Will that and the prevalence of English be enough for us to get around?

Bought the disc version and I love it. Decent tropey kind of characters, good music, cool time travel, and good voice acting for the most part. The graphics are good because of the environment detail and lighting but wow some of the characters look bad up close. Its like Ken and Barbie face.

If you like Telltale like stuff its worth a look. Or Degrassi

Play as Kara and share in our story.

Trailer looks very promising. While I loved Heavy Rain I didn't play Beyond Two Souls. I'm sure a lot of people didn't because I heard that game was an embarrassment. (I will probably pick it up to play for giggles).

General Games / Grow Home
« on: September 15, 2015, 09:21:16 AM »
It's free for PS+ right now and it's a charming and fun game. It's short, so it'll be a good balance to all the huge games, and it is a simple concept. You control a little robot that lands on an island and has to propagate a giant plant up 2km to get back to the spaceship. You do this by hopping, then rocket packing, and then gliding around.

The graphics look like if PS1 era graphics were high res and colorful, super good looking there. It's a lot of fun to hop around and grow the plant out to remote floatin islands and explore. Plus the achievements are easy and fun.

The game also does give a dizzying sense of height that few games have provided.

It's fun! It's cute!

Color me surprised that there's no thread on this.


It's a metroid style game, and the art style certainly does not hide that. It's full of fun exploration, great music (crank the bass please), interesting weapons and great boss fights.

I'm about 3 or 4 bosses in and I'm taking my time going back over the map. As on par with the genre you get new abilities in various forms that allow access to previously unavailable areas.

It's not too hard but there are hard modes and a speed run mode for those people too. It's on PS4 but will be coming to Vita soon. Don't hold your breath for a PC or Xbone version.

General Discussions / Home theater sound
« on: November 30, 2014, 01:26:25 PM »
So about 2 years ago I dropped some nice coin on a very nice 50" sony tv. Picture is fantastic and I love it. Problem is... speakers on TVs are passable but when I wanna crank music or movies/games it just doesn't cut it. I don't want to blow my windows out and I'm more interested in good range than blaring audio.

I see there's a lot of things like soundbars and such out there. In fact, my brother has a soundbar on his tv and I actually was fooled, I thought he had surround sound. The thing is his device was made specifically for his tv and in fact it fits right under the tv and snaps in place.

Does anyone have any exeperiece in home audio?

With the holiday sales I was gonna jump on something.

Anime, TV, and Movies / Movies that make you cry
« on: November 25, 2014, 10:23:07 PM »
Ok tough guys and ladies... time to admit at what big softies we all are. I'm a pretty emotional guy, quick to anger, quick to smile, and quick to bawl my eyes out at a movie.


For me, a few come to mind. First, Stand by Me. This movie holds up well, especially for males, I think. It's hard to explain, and even though I had a crew of friends when I was younger my true life friends didn't show up until I hit high school.

The part that kills me in Stand by Me is when he tells what happens to Chris.

The other movie is Braveheart. Yeah I know it's a ridiculous Gibson movie, but when his friends watch him die at the end ... shit I lose it. I've never seen the redheaded dude in any movie but I'm sure him and the Irish guy are bit players in a lot of UK productions. Anyway... the emotion on their faces hits home.


I teared up in Interstellar...

I'm sure there's a whole litany of movies but I can't recall them all right now. ...

Night and Fog probably.

What movies caused you to become an emotional heap of quivering and sobbing flesh?

So they went nuts and announced 9 new movies yesterday to be release over the next few years.

Here's what we're getting in addition to the already announced Avengers 2: Ultron:

Avengers Infinity Wars parts 1 and 2
Cap'n America 3: Civil War
Thor 3
Guardians of the Galaxy 2
Captain Marvel
The Inhumans
Black Panther
Dr. Strange

The only one I'm not tickled by is Black Panther, because I don't know anything about the character. Would a guy running around in a cat suit be fun? mayhaps

Thoughts?

General Games / Fibbage (made by the You Don't Know Jack people)
« on: August 29, 2014, 01:37:58 PM »
Played this game at a friend's house last night and it's a fantastic group game. It's simple as hell but brilliant. You download the game on the console (we played on xbox one) and each person uses their phone to go to a website. You join the game lobby through the phone, super easy.

So the game will ask a question and each player will have to type in a "lie" that's close to the answer. After everyone types in a lie everything shows up on screen and you vote for the one you think is the right answer. You get points for picking the right answer and points if people pick your lie.

It's fun, games last about 10 minutes and you're ready to go for another round right away. And alcohol makes things better, as usual.

Here's a screengrab of what usually happens
