Finished up Mana Khemia and Star Ocean: TLH finally. Good thing Star Ocean's battle system is super fun, otherwise I would have thrown my controller at the screen in frustration. I also started and finished .hack//G.U. Vol. 1. I don't think I'll do all the tedious extra stuffs, and will just go on to the next game. It is a fun game though, I'm liking it.

To be honest, I liked Suikoden 4 a lot, but it's the only game where I can see legitimate reasons as to why people wouldn't like it.

I agree. 4 is easily the weakest, but it wasn't a bad game IMO, it just felt more lazy and unpolished when compared to the other entries. To be honest, I think 4's strategist was my favorite of the series (not counting 2 or Tierkreis, I haven't played either).

I wish I had been more aware of LucasArts games when they were still available, since my interest in them started long after their time. But hopefully Monkey Island will be successful and inspire Telltale and LucasArts to give DotT the same treatment they're giving Secret of Monkey Island.

Borrowed .hack//G.U. 1-3 from a friend, but I'm gonna put those on hold while I beat a few backlogged games. The first is Mana Khemia, and I'm pretty certain I'm at the last dungeon, and considering I have everyone's Growbook almost maxed, I'm not expecting a lot of problems. Up next: SO4.

So judging from the interview on the news page, is it safe to assume that Victor Ireland has no association with the new Lunar release?

I don't think that's a safe assumption, but I am not sure one way or the other.

Though, I am interested in knowing everyone's opinion in terms of the Lunar PSP localization. Given the choices of:

1) retranslated Lunar PSP (since it is a new script) that retains much of the "feel" of Working Designs Lunar, including character names, NPCs with that distinct brand of personality, etc

I'd choose this one. Honestly, without WD's translation I don't think Lunar would have been all that charming for me. But granted, my opinion is biased since I have yet to play a non-WD translation of the game.

These are the only ones that I could come up with:

Miscellaneous Games -
The games you're not ashamed to show your friends

Anime, TV, and Movies -
It's all porn anyways

Gran Torino.  That was the best movie I've seen in quite a while.

Ditto on this one. It was very, very good. Definitely not the kind of movie I was expecting.

I watched Let the Right One In and Amelie yesterday and today. Both were really well done, and Amelie has to be the cutest movie I've seen a long time. It was a feel good movie, but without becoming saccharine.
803  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: June 06, 2009, 12:29:38 AM
I've been trying to watch more movies lately, so here's my contributions:

Mulholland Dr. - What a wonderful puzzle of a movie.

Little Miss Sunshine - It's National Lampoon's Family Vacation except indier and darker.

Heathers - Silly teen angst movie, but nice dark humor fun. Best line ever: "Well fuck me gently with a chainsaw."

Up next:


Let the Right One In

In regards to L4D2, I'm wary of how good it will be coming out only a year after its predecessor, but in all honesty, I doubt it'll be a true "sequel". I hope I'm wrong though, and that they add more content then just recycling the old stuff with some new things tacked on. The trailer set a really good mood though, and I really like the new survivors, from what we got to see of them.
805  Media / General Games / Re: New Monkey Island on: June 01, 2009, 07:38:00 PM
This is awesome news! Telltale games did a really good job with Sam & Max IMO, so if Monkey Island had to fall into anyone's hands, I'm glad it is theirs.
806  Media / General Games / Re: Bayonetta on: May 27, 2009, 03:43:15 PM
I'm totally sold on this game. There wasn't a single thing I saw that didn't look like crazy-good fun. Also, I'm really digging the music too; it reminds me of DMC but with more of a jazzy edge.
807  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 2 pre-E3 teaser. on: May 15, 2009, 11:25:03 PM
Wonderful teaser, I hope the wait won't be too long. I'm very much interested in seeing how some of the decisions, (especially the two key ones at the end) will affect the 2nd's story. I love it in games when it show's how my decisions affected the world and the people around my main character.
808  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star on: May 13, 2009, 08:01:27 PM
I personally loved Working Designs translation, since most the humor was either appropriate to the situation or wasn't intrusive. Given that, I'm ambivalent on my opinion of another remake, I dunno if it'll have the same charm as WD's version.
809  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mana Khemia 2 release announced! on: May 11, 2009, 01:23:29 PM
I've never played any of the AI games, but I did enjoy MK. It was a fun, light-hearted game that you wasn't meant to be taken too seriously, similar to FFX-2 and Steambot Chronicles in terms of tone. From what I read, this game has the option of choosing between two main characters with their own stories, which brings to mind Star Ocean 2, which is a very good thing.
810  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Gayming, as it were. on: May 08, 2009, 04:09:53 PM
I'm all for including homosexuality in video games... as long as it isn't there simply as titlating fodder for straight gamers. I DO NOT see Mass Effect's lesbian relationship as a step-forward for gay rights, for instance... in fact I see it more as an objectification of lesbianism for the enjoyment of straight males. Maybe it was fairly tastefull, maybe it wasn't even neccessarily unethical, but let's not kid ourselves either.

Which actually brings up a problem I have with Alisha's "interpretations": Fanwank. I find it awfully offensive to the original material when people do this kind of crap. Perhaps that's why I don't like fanfiction in general (especially not pornfics), though there are occasions when a fanwriter can do the original material justice. One of the most frequent and offensive subversions is homo-to-hetero or hetero-to-homo (the latter being more common). It reaches a degree of way-more-offensive when straight females transform straight males into homosexuals (owing to the issue where straight females have no god damned clue what being a male homosexual is like -- I don't either, but then I'm not doing this), but it's ridiculous either way.

Hrist = Not a lesbian.
Aelia = Also not a lesbian.

Fear Effect on the other hand? Go nuts. :P
well it's not like I write fanfics or something. it's just something to help me forge an attachment with a character. but sometimes it backfires on me such as in the case of Raquel in the ending of WA4,and Tear when she blurts out that she loves luke at the end of the game. oftentimes when i see a depiction of love in a rpg between a male and female such as the scene near the end of FFX i feel like a fish out of water. maybee it's partly jealousy since the last time my girlfriend kissed me in public someone threw food at me >_>

I know it might not be much, but Hanako Games's OEL Visual Novel "Fatal Hearts" has a girl/girl ending pairing. I liked it a lot better than some of the girl/guy pairings.
