A sensible reaction after spoiling myself on the story.

It's sounding really weak thus far so I'm definitely waiting on price plummets this time.

So, here's how I see these people:

"What's with all these kids on XBL/PSN with their racial epithets and homophobic slurs, why won't Microsoft/Sony ban them for ruining our experience?"

8 years later:

"What is this NSA bullshit, if I want to call someone a faggot in-game that's my fucking business."

Isn't that kind of going into extremes here? Nevermind I don't think anyone's too concerned over that so much as saying dick, shit, fuck, etc. in videos and with no options to just not let minors see them, maybe even not allow it for private storage. Yeah, I understand they don't want kids exposes to it, but besides the fact most kids are well exposed already there's the fact there's better options then a blanket ban, especially when they can turn around and watch something on Youtube that throws in swearing anyway.

Nevermind if it's footage of an M rated game with loads of swearing anyway...

Look. I don't want them to suck and I don't want them to fail.

I'd rather see them successful with a multitude of different titles like they used to do but I'm not going to cut them slack on things that people complain about when other companies like Activision or Ubisoft do it just because Persona games are trendy.

Admittedly I do think the lack of original PSP games was a bit of a problem. I don't think the ports are inherently bad so long as they don't take up enough development time/resources that could've gone into a new game (probably why Nintendo opted for A Link Between Worlds rather than Link to the Past 3D) but it does kind of suck if the output for one system was solely ports as the case was with PSP and MegaTen or GBA and Mario.

And a lot of the problem with practices of EA/Ubisoft is just how far they go, small minor microtransactions were never the problem, it was when a game was deliberately rigged for them. I actually think the SMTIV/FE approach is more ideal as rather than buying gold/EXP you're buying optimized grinding stages so you STILL have to play the game, just not buy a full instant win button.
Well, I don't like it because it's awkward in English, but it IS a Japanese setting, so it's not like the context is incorrect.

Yeah, that's roughly how I feel. It's not really ideal in English but so long as the setting's right it's not too big of a deal. It's when you get shit translators keeping honorifics in areas outside of Japan, Japanese characters, or Japan-styled fictional areas where I get irritated.

Banned for swearing on Skype is just insane. Did that I really happen? Sorry, I didn't go back and read all the previous messages.

I posted my link for a reason: it did not, there was a bug in the system, and I want people to KNOW THIS so we don't get post after post operating on misinformation.
65  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGFan's 20 Top 20 DS Games on: November 26, 2013, 01:29:52 AM
Getting back on topic a bit, this list is invalid because nobody considered The Great Cave Offensive from Kirby's SuperStar Ultra and that very much had battles inspired by RPGs.

I saw someone wonder why the hell Canvas Curse wasn't on the list at all actually.

Before noticing the name of the site that produced the list.
66  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGFan's 20 Top 20 DS Games on: November 25, 2013, 08:59:16 PM
It's not drastically different but it has a lot of details the movie lacked, and it doesn't make the concessions for artsiness that the movie did.

Code for "you don't stare at a guy drifting in spaces for minutes on end" ergo book is better by default.
67  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGFan's 20 Top 20 DS Games on: November 25, 2013, 08:00:02 PM
I've enjoyed every Kubrick film I saw BUT 2001. Though Full Metal Jacket was kind of lacking.
68  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: XBOX: A New Generation Revealed, May 21st on: November 25, 2013, 04:26:18 PM

Nope.

Well, "excessive swearing" in Upload Studios, really should've had an "inappropriate for minors" flag built in.
69  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zelda LttP 2 for 3DS on: November 24, 2013, 01:54:54 AM
But the problem is : Is the game hard/long enough to justify it for anything other than completion sake?

In hero mode, undoubtedly.

In standard, I think it's just a matter of you sitting on so many rupees and wanting to do something with them. I haven't really gone out of my way to get money to buy stuff, I just buy stuff because I like ownership and I can afford it. I didn't even know about upgrades until now, heh.

If you absolutely got to have OLED then go with Vita now, the next model won't have it. Otherwise go 3DS, lot of great games out now and coming in the near future and if Tomara's right the PS3 could see another drop anyway.

Will a mix of blue and yellow be more to your satisfaction?
72  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Sega buying Atlus on: October 06, 2013, 03:35:07 PM
Admittedly without Atlus fully acquired yet the true test will be once Nov 1st has come and some time has passed. Still, if they felt the need to lay off at Sega USA in advance it does imply there's some value in Atlus USA for them.
73  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wind Waker U on: October 05, 2013, 03:22:39 PM
And I forgot to go through properly and address this earlier, but sometimes we just really like a game, or it's been so long it's as good as new. There's only so much time and there's new experiences to find, yes, but sometimes that older game's just more enjoyable than anything newer you'd dig up, such as Super Metroid. Though it does help that specific example is damn short and Wind Waker HD added options to cut down on time so it's more reasonable for playing than replaying the original Wind Waker.
74  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wind Waker U on: October 05, 2013, 04:20:27 AM
We all have our own glitches.

Some people are foolish enough to ignore one of the best shows ever because it deals with drugs! I mean who cares about the compelling story, sincere performances, and excellent production and music?

Breaking Bad? Heh, I'd actually been meaning to get around to that but simply haven't, the pizza-on-the-roof thing was enough to make me interested though.
75  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki on: October 02, 2013, 04:31:46 PM
So maybe that will make you feel better about the fact that we'll never get it.

When the big reasons to care about the series are just fine? Not really much of a consolation really, maybe if they completely ruined the story/setting, but this doesn't sound like Valkyria Chronicles 2.
