10876  The Rest / General Discussions / 911 Dispatcher's Mistake Leads to Mother's Death on: April 11, 2006, 08:36:46 PM
One of the big problem for prank callers is the fact they may take away help from those that really need it - but I figure trying to do something about a problem and accidentally miss a real one is better than brushing off someone you think is joking, and instead have them die.

Another thing I want to note about the sundae: If they pay that much for it, they better keep the fucking spoon and goblet.

I dunno, but to me that looks pretty fake.

Edit: Also, it's worth noting Goemon had trouble and that was 3D, while Atelier Iris got through mostly fine and Growlanser had problems.

To be fair, he noted Sony Computer Entertainment /America/ - they do seem more stingy about content than their japanese counterpart, but I don't think anyone outside of the company has a good idea of just how much in actuality. And even with that distinction, games like Medievil and Ape Escape got ported to it with seemingly no corporate issues.
10880  The Rest / General Discussions / Prices of Game Rentals. on: April 11, 2006, 06:13:20 PM
Though this isn't entirely because of the price issue, I've rarely rented games as of late. As it is though, I'm more inclined to use GameFly than support Blockbuster. 5 dollars was fine, and 6 was pushing it. But going to 7 and 8 is just insane, and older games litterally aren't worth renting since you can buy the game and keep it for life for little more than the cost of renting twice. At least with Gamefly, I can try out as many games as I want and thus actually judge their quality without having to pay most of the cost as it is..

Why not finish it off with a $1000 Sundae?
http://www.dailyolive.com/got_1000_why_no.html

See, the sandwich is mostly expensive just because it uses really high quality ingredients. But this sounds like a mixture of really high quality ingredients... And useless additions that jack the price up several hundred, if not making 99% of the cost.

I'd buy the sandwich, but I'd only want to see the sundae, then try it out without the gold covering and crap. :P

Edit: Though caviar with ice cream just doesn't sound appealing. The rest sounds pretty good though.

Anyone care to guess why Atlus made this decision? Is the content of Devil Summoner much more "objectionable" than the SMT games we get these days?


SCEA doesn't care about content, to them the game doesn't "look pretty" thus they'ed turn it down.  Also SCEA won't accept ports unless there's "30% new content".

I'm curious as to where you heard that. That would explain all those games like ToE, BoFIII, and Suik 1&2 not coming out here... But Devil Summoner never came out here, so I figure that would negate that negative.

Edit: Also, Popolocrois came out here despite being a port, and I imagine similar happened with Generations of Chaos.

1up said 'technical issues' awhile back - perhaps there's some bad bugs in the PSP version or it's hard to put an english translation in.

Honestly, unless I was fluent in japanese this would probably be one of the lowest of interest for importing, simply because part of the appeal's from the graphic adventure element. If I could leisurely import, I'd probably spend it on something that I can greatly enjoy with no worries of understanding shit, or at least have zero chance of coming out here - like that cheerleading DS game for the former, and Sakura Taisen for the latter.

Yay, someone else that needs a lesson drilled in their skulls. Naturally the prank caller's more innocent for not knowing osmething like this would happen, but should have police going over there and drilling a lesson into the asshole's head. :P
10886  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Journal #2 on the new(ish) boards on: April 11, 2006, 12:49:24 AM
Personally, I've given up on playing Oblivion on normal difficulty. The rise is just insane, and completely negates one of the big points of getting new equipment: feeling like you're getting more powerful and are a badass. Playing it again after getting some progress done in SMT:N, and have the difficulty just a little below normal difficulty.

I didn't look at the 'sometimes controversial' link before, figuring it'd just be a link to the religion in video games bit Jeremy Parish did prior, but it actually links to a feature on the controversial elements in Shin Megami Tensei. You can read it here, but be warned: It has penis.
10888  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / I'm looking for a game! on: April 10, 2006, 09:20:38 PM
Outside of Roms and the like... If you can run DOSBox, you can get Elder Scrolls: Arena here. And while not an RPG, Cave Story's pretty awesome.

As for RPGMaker: Any games made with that, IIRC, are standalone and free for anyone who doesn't have it, so if you can find some site with them, hey. :P
10889  The Rest / General Discussions / Ridiculously Expensive Sandwich on: April 10, 2006, 06:49:09 PM
If I could afford to casually buy something like that, holy shit I would. Sounds good to me. :P

Not surprising, but awesome news nevertheless. But if he were waking up and wondering 'how can I make this company more awesome?', he'd also be getting the PSP title localized. :P
