Meh. I was more interested in posting a clip of Jude's Sister's VAing to get a sense of what kind of characterization to expect. The results forecast a 60% chance of lifeless butt on a stick.

Now with that said: http://gematsu.com/2015/06/tales-berseria-trademarked-europe

Have an EU trademark.

And that's Orguss finished. Neat series, 5 stars, would watch again. Nicely animated (for its time) too, especially when watching it in contrast to L-Gain, and has a chill as hell soundtrack.

Also, I forgot to mention this, but I also recently finished up Code-E, so I just started up Mission-E and uhn....I feel like I may have missed something? That or I'm suffering from genre whiplash as I've seem to have gone from a somewhat generic Japanese Highschool Romcom to watching a lost episode of Bubblegum Crisis or R.O.D. or something (to the extent that the previous series' ditsy shojou-esque female lead has suddenly donned a hardsuit, joined up with some other ninja chick, and are riding around in a bitchin' Mustang fighting evil shadowy organizations as some kind of cyber ninja team duo). So I guess that made the first series worth it.

Also also started Shirobako and feel that it is satisfying enough to give it the three episode test. Love the Initial D style opening with the guy from G.I. Constructions (or whatever).

Also also also, totally failed to check out the first episode of Michiko & Hatchin due to Toonami's schedule reshuffling (I got to waste more time on more SWORDS CRAFTED FROM SPACESHIP ARMOR 0_o). Welp. Better luck next week I guess. :(

Yeah, "ken" means know.

I don't think many Scot's would be able to tell you why it is ken, but luckily I also speak a good amount of German. So I can give you a bit of insight.

You can see a lot of German words in English, but Scots however is a lot like German, and ken probably came from the German word "kennt" meaning "know".

EDIT: And they probably made them Osakan. That seems to be the go to "country" accent the Japanese give. :P

Considering that this was made in Hawaii, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if that in this case they really were aiming for Scottsland. They made Quina full on mahalo (which is apparently a Hawaiian sub-dialect), so there's probably more translingual awareness going on here than your usual JRPG production.

But I feel like straight up ARPG wouldn't work so well with such a large party.  In Crisis Core or Dirge of Cerberus, you were only controlling one character.  The biggest complaint about party-based ARPGs is that character AI is lousy and you spend too much time babysitting the characters.  Hence, something like the Gambits in FFXII.  I LOVED that.  You could program the AI very specifically to make your party members do exactly what you want when you want. So you get the control of turn-based with the seamless integration of ARPG.  

I could see FFVII with Gambits working.

Tell that to Star Ocean 5.

Or Ys VII/Celcetia.

Meanwhile Cyclops is roasting people with a flamethrower.

Why would he be roasting people with a flamethrower?

He can shoot frikin lazor beams out of his eyes.

And he doesn't even need to worry about energy or fatigue when firing his lazors.

Because he's constantly firing his lazors.

Which is why he wears those dorky shades or visor all the time.

So why the flamethrower?

Does he love the smell of Napalm in the morning?

Is he in some sort of SMT type of situation where his lazors are classified as a Force type attack and the enemy blocks/absorbs Force type attacks?

Or is this yet another case of an X-Man temporarily losing his goddamn mutant powers for the millionth time?

Don't make me sad guys. :(

You mean that you weren't sad when they first announced this?

Rally Ho!

I have to wonder if there was a Scottish person on the translation team. There has to have been, the use of Scot's is pretty perfect in Conde Petite, most so than any other form of media I've seen. FFIX is the only one to use Scot's properly and not some racist butchered version of it like Groundskeeper Willie :P


I dinnae ken whit ye're on aboot.


...What does "ken" mean?  Never really got that one... :S
(I'm worried it's super obvious and I'm gonna look like a dumb).

I'm actually curious what 'dialect' or verbal tic the Japanese text gave Condie Petitians.

I've actually heard something similar to 'ken' used to describe knowledge with phrases similar to "This is beyond my/your kin." or something to that effect (normally it comes up with the olde tyme style wizened sage or similar telling the protagonist that they've got nuthin'). Of course, I could be talking out of my ass since I haven't heard that kind of expression in years (possibly over a decade), but now that I'm thinking about it, I believe I've heard it most from characters with some kind of Scottish character trait.
23  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake (updates in the 1st post) on: June 22, 2015, 06:54:54 AM

Sounds kinda like they want to get rid of turn based combat for this thing.

Not surprised in the least.

I'd be far more surprised if they didn't just ARPG this bad boy up, especially given Nomura's track record on top of bringing it more in line with the styles of action used in AC, CC and DoC.

A wild Berseria trailer approaches.
25  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: SMTxFE (aka 'GIRFE', aka 'PerformaEmblem') on: June 21, 2015, 10:46:00 AM
I feel like I'm the only one who's actually feeling pretty good about this game. xD Definitely not what was expected, but from the looks of it they're going all out with the music/idol motif and the gameplay looks super fun. Who knows, but I'm definitely going to give it a shot.

My beef has been, and continues to be, my thorough lack of interest in any more of Atlus' Persona Performa spam. The J-Pop, Idols and Hatsumi Miku Tiki aren't helping matters either, nor is the utter lack of a possibility of any Jugdral or Magvel FE reppage (hell, I don't even think Elibe has much of a shot; and that's even after considering that by the time this comes out, Roy II's Amiibo will be out of stock and vanished into the mists of legends).

Oh well, I suppose I'm getting carried away. After all, if they do manage to include a character I actually like in this, I might feel differently about this, but right now, Caeda alone isn't enough to get me to reconsider my stance on this (and I continue to suspect that Eleanora's (archer chick's) Performa is going to wind up being based upon either Gordon Gaggles, Ryan, Rolf, possibly Wolt (though unlikely given the aforementioned lack of Elibe reppage, on top of him not quite meeting the shota quota that pairs well with a J-Pop idol chick), or maybe a Stahl (or Green Haired Robin) sired Noire (because these days, if it isn't from Archanea, its probably from Yilisse)).

Maybe even open up the option to pull off something like XBC's Chain Attack under certain circumstances.

Alternatively, bring back FFXII's Gambits.

Or perhaps the whole 6+ parties thing is a massive load.
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake (updates in the 1st post) on: June 20, 2015, 10:52:04 AM
Dice- yes, I didn't highlight everyone's "believing something that's untrue" because I couldn't remember them all.  Hence the etc. 

As for Tifa's proportions, they don't seem that odd to me because I too have longer legs but a shorter torso.  This was evident when I was getting fitted for my new bicycle.

One that Dice missed was Cait Sith believing he's become a real boy.

Also, a new generation will now become acquainted with Titfa or Ms. Walking Life-support for Breasts.
28  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2015 Topic of Potentially High Hype and Crushed Dreams for that Game You Want on: June 20, 2015, 06:49:03 AM
My E3 impressions are that:

A) Sony won the Internet (nevermind E3) by getting to pull the trigger on FFVII The Remake, as well as pulling off the hat trick that was TLG gameplay and the Shenmue 3 kickstarter announcement. However, outside of that, their conference heralded the death of the PS Vita in the Western Markets, if not its complete death, and they had that Horizon game which looked like fem-Turok: Dinobot Hunter. The rest what largely yearly iterations, sequels that look nearly identical to their predecessors and indie stuff that promises the moon and the stars. There were also talking heads and montages a plenty.

B) Squeenix made a solid showing for itself with FFVII: The Remaking and NieR 2, however, I'm no longer really expecting anything from them anymore since they've figuratively jumped the shark. World of FF looked like Squeenix's continuing trend of cashing in on nostalgia and KH 3 continues to be a thing. The rest, I gave a pass on because Nintendo's Tree House was happening at that point and I couldn't be assed to switch over.

C) Nintendo's numerous presentations gave us Earthbound Zero (in spite of it being badly aged jank; but hey, I've played through Phantasy Star 2, so I'll live if it means seeing localizations for other passed over games like it and Mysterious Murasame Castle), some updates on titles that up until E3 were only known to be a thing (Star Fox Zero), and localization release dates for the more highly anticipated titles (XBCX). The new stuff was underwhelming though, with Zelda Tri-force Heroes and Metroid Prime: Federation Forces being the new titles that failed to show them living up to their namesakes, while Little Battlers X and Yokai Watch reminding me of just how goddamn overrated Level 5 is, Persona Emblem continues to have the absolute worst trailers imaginable, and the Amiibo clusterfuck rages on by producing a joint venture with Skylanders among other things. Thank god for their Treehouse Live Streams because they really turned my opinion around on MP: Federation Forces and convinced me that there was more to Persona Emblem than Idols, J-Pop and Vocaloids; they also covered the stuff that should've been covered in the presentation like Fatal Frame 5. Overall though, the theme of the year was to "Do the Mario" with Super Mario Maker and with Social Media, and oh by the way, Star Fox Zero is coming along.

D) Bethesda did a solid showing of Fallout 4 and even convinced me that their upcoming Doom game looks like Doom. Other than that though, their presentation was mostly a wash since 1) I'm not much of a Bethesda fan, and 2) they really spent half their conference time on Fallout 4 alone.

E) Microsoft's big announcement was that 30 games in 1 Rare Collection (which I'm hoping won't just be a bunch of lazily emulated copies of those games because there were several classics mixed in there and it'd be a real shame if they weren't (or barely were) playable), followed distantly by Inafune's and ex-Retro guys' latest vehicle ReBootCore (how I wish). The rest of the conference was a complete joke with special mention going to this year's in conference commercial (complete with actual Car; sold separately), Minecraft via CNN's Situation Room, EA's flaccid Access service (being met by all of four golf claps), and Microsoft's second doomed attempt at trying to implement Backlog: The Remake.

F) Ubisoft came out with South Park 2: Revengeance and a bunch of lies and slander. Full Stop.

G) EA doesn't even deserve a mention for its remake of its E3 2014 presentation. Even their yearly Madden is garbage due to not even acknowledging the need to accurately recreate Tom Brady's deflated balls.

(I've been looking at people who say Aeris and Aerith in this topic; but you can't see this because I wrote it in parentheses!!)

Not really sure SE can force lock the Gondola ride into being Aeris only.

If you do so you're removing the Barret option. Which in this internet age will get the US/EU side screaming 'racism' AND 'anti-gay' accusations. (Pretty much the same backlash reasons they won't alter the brothel's optional sequences.)

And on the Japan side of things if they deny date options with big-breasted fanservice girl and genki-ninja Haruhi-clone girl their local market will slam on it.

So west and east an Aeris-only crop is a horrid idea PR-wise.

Heh, I think you're reading into what happened during the Barret date.
They say nothing for half of it, and this is the rest:

Barret: Hey foo. What you wanna see fireworks with me for?
Cloud: Not having fun?
Barret: You should've asked one or the other!
Cloud: Which would you have asked?
Barret: Oh man, there just ain't no choice!
Barret: Tifa, Aeris.
Barret: Ah, Yuffie?
Cloud: (hoo boy)
Barret: What the hell's that supposed to mean?
Barret: Hey, you don't mean...Marlene?
Barret: NO WAY! Forget it!
Barret: There ain't no way I'm lettin' a wacko like you anywhere near my little Marlene!
Barret: She's my baby. My prized possession.
Barret: .......Marlene.
Barret: Wish I could've brought Marlene here. She'd love the fireworks.
Barret: Why the hell do I gotta be here with a foo like you...!
Barret: Shit...the more I think 'bout it the madder I get!
Barret: Damn fireworks anyways.
Barret: Shut up!!

The game makes a point to DENY you and Barret entry into the Stage Play (as the "100th couple!").  The option could not be more 'for fun' if it tried and as a perk for... well, treating the girls like an asshole and buttering up Barret.

That does bring up another possibility though. Maybe there will be even more datable options for the Gondola Ride, like Lucerita or Marlene (or maybe they're Vincent Only options). :V

There will be other things to ride besides boars.
