This is almost as stupid as that Yoga Shorts business cropping up these days.

Jesus Fucking Christ Yggnog, WHO GIVES? A FUCK!?!

If anybody doesn't want a game because they can't jack off to a moeblob of polygons like the Glorious Nippon can, then I say "FUCK 'EM RIGHT IN DA COX!!!"

Because they and their shitfuck opinions are totally and completely, absolutely irrelevant to anyone that actually matters in life. Seriously, don't feed the goddamn fucking troll Tomara trolls.

And in 'yet another goddamn CE, FML' news. http://gematsu.com/2015/11/odin-sphere-leifthrasir-ps4-storybook-edition-announced

Even with all that swag, I still can't justify purchasing this (especially since I'm lined up for like four other CEs this season already). #firstworldproblems #FMW #wintergamingdogpile #goddamnCEs #gettin'tooldforthisshit

The Peanuts Movie is officially being considered for Best Animated Feature nomination, apparently.  Which is great.  Of course, so is Minions, so it really doesn't mean much at this point.

Literally doesn't matter since its always Disney/Pixar > Dreamworks > Tim Burton > The Wallace & Grommit guys. Like seriously, Inside Out is absolutely guaranteed the Oscar and there's no two ways about it.

And frankly, they could easily do away with the entire category and not lose a damn thing, because they generally only nominate whatever comes out of the above, which is perfect for them since they only put out about 3 movies total on an average year. They just nominate all of them and give the award to whatever came out of the highest on the above list.

tl;dr, The Peanuts Movie winning a nomination means exactly as much as winning the Oscar for best animated feature and not even getting nominated at all.

And the same goes for every other category since the Academy is made up entirely of old, rich, white Hollywood snobbery, who like to self-fornicate over their perceived superiority of their own particular tastes like a teenager coming across a porn site for the first time.

I'd wait on DQVII until the 3DS version comes out since that's going to be infinitely more playable due to being on a handheld.

That said, I've decided to screw around with KI:U some more since that game is harder to 100% than all five SSB combined.

Also my first attempt at tackling RKA ended on the boss of Stage 4. Between learning the layouts and being fairly sloppy in general, I sorta ran out of lives.

A game we all deserved with a control scheme it didn't deserve.

It controls well enough, but stages are long and I don't have the same kind of patience as I used to (its been over a decade since I tried to barrel through Megaman Zero 1 Hard Mode on one playthrough without saving).

Looks like Ganondorf is finally getting his Triumph Fork back. Also looks like Linkle and Twili Midna are a team.

Rofl. Hard to say whether or not its a good thing or a bad thing that they're moving away from making an SRPG for this one. On the one hand, being an SRPG was what made the original trilogy stand out from the rest of the pack, but on the other hand, the devs were never particularly good at making a well designed SRPG as evident by things like making the first game's A-Rank shorthand for 'Alicia Rush' Rank.

That said, the characters look to be designed for a generic JRPG, so let's see where this goes.

Also lol @ Japan getting a PS4 port of VC1 just to rival Steam's port of VC1.

I guess you're not trying to do remotely retro stuff now, since you could've done Deus Ex 1.

The only hard rule we follow is that we can't cover anything that's less than a year oldwhat Monsoon said. ^_^ So when it came down to deciding a WRPG to do, the internal vote was in Human Revolution's favor.

Plus, do you really want to give Josh an outlet to complain about Deus Ex 1? ;)

And for 'completely' unrelated reasons, I vote that the next available REP be about Deus Ex 1.

Yeah Gamefaqs was my first "forum hangout" spot way back when.  It's definitely devolved, you can't really have a good conversation about a damn thing on there.  I think I gave up on one "argument" when someone responded with Thunderf00t and realized there was totally no point in talking to that void.  I just like to stick to asking questions and helping others nowadays.  The opinion topics get real stupid real fast.

I'm just snowballing, and again, I'm setting myself up to hate this game at this rate, but this is the most excited I've been to own a game in YEEARRS. :)

Saying that GameFAQs' Message Boards have 'devolved' implies that they were ever above the low and base of Internet shitposting whitenoise, and this is a completely false assertion.

The only thing they have over 4chan is the lack of porn (and that trait is only of a questionable worth on its own).

Generally I am against censorship, but there are exceptions. GameXplain made a short video about the changes between the Japanese and English versions and it literally comes down to two things and only two things. The bikini costumes on Lin cover her up a bit more (remember she is only 13 in the game that wasn't changed, however the bikini's are unchanged for the rest of the female cast), and the bust slider was removed. GameXplain says that is it, the only two changes made to the entire game. Meanwhile gamefaq's is turning into 4chan over this, and it's highly depressing. I used to really enjoy chatting with people over there :(

^ GameFUQs.txt

Because seriously, their message boards have been devolving into a cascade of shitposting every time something releases since the start of the millennium. This is nothing new or different or at all noteworthy.

Dated in Japan.

Now with some character bios.

from watching the trailer and extrapolating, I assume. they're usually pretty formulaic in how they demonstrate new characters' moves.

This. Plus, those would be the moves I'd use for Cloud's B commands given that Limit Breaks and choice of weapon were basically the only mechanical things distinguishing one FFVII character from another. :V With that set up, the only thing Cloud is missing is Meteor Rain (and Cherry Blossom for you FFT aficionados), and I didn't spot that at all during the announcement trailer. The rest of his moveset might either be based upon his various attack animations from using different Materia (like Deathblow, Quadra Slice, Long-Range, etc), or on his Dissidia moveset, I have to rewatch the trailer to be sure (and maybe a Dissidia LP).

I may've said this before but like

On the one hand, I love DQ7 and I'd /love/ to see it get a proper translation.

On the other hand, I worry that the 3DS version's just gonna be a bunch of

<Gabo> OY GUV
<Maribel> GUV.
<Maribel> * long string of increasingly forced puns *

The British accents were cool in 8 but the new naming conventions started getting uncomfortably WDly. Although I mean nothing can be worse than the nadir that was DQ4DS's Russian acceFUCK YOU SQUENIX.

*looks up Barins*

At least you could save yourself some effort on that front by playing the DS version because 'lol party chat' (at least the Android port included it).

And on that note, I wonder if they've ended up cutting the party chat out of VII as well (though I would happily welcome the accents if only to spice up the party chat dialogue beyond "Hey Hero, there is a thing!; Did you notice that thing, Hero?; Hero, did you get that thing I sent you?").

Frankly, the Bust Slider is nothing compared to the removal of Tharja's Trophy in Smash 4 3DS, and I'm far more worried about what kind of hacksaw they took to FE:Fates than this (I suspect that there's going to be a lot more 'Companions' this time around).

That said, I can only hope that the Bustly Default size is enough to mimic KOS-MOS's, as that's who I'm going to make for my first run's MU.

More importantly though:

What's 'your voice' on the matter.
