The only reason I'm "boycotting" Capcom myself is that they have canned the games I want and haven't released anything I REALLY want, at worst I'll just skip borderline cases (usually fighters) until there's something I actually want enough... like this, though I'm going to wait a bit because I'm NOT that interested to play right away.

Plus we really don't know just how much game will be available at the start versus how much of it will require DLC to unlock.

Now that I think about it, cyberpunk doesn't seem like a very popular style in anime at all.

You can't put a high school with generic characters in a cyberpunk series because that would actually be interesting I guess.

No, you can. Just look at Guilty Crown. It's basically Shining Hearts in a cyberpunk setting.

But yeah, even if the cyberpunk genre didn't die out a decade ago, the bar on quality wouldn't have been challenged all that much. I mean, when I think of cyberpunk outside of standouts like GitS I tend to think of crap like Angel Cop and Virus Buster: Surge; violent, sexed up, grim dark, trashy, lowbrow escapades. And aside from the rampant sexual exploitation and general lowbrow-ness, Moe stands in complete contrast to cyberpunk, which is unfortunate due to its prevalence in today's anime market.

Also cyberpunk now means MMO setting rather than grimdark/Blade Runner-ish settings of the 80's (given that we're now basically in that future that cyberpunks pessimistically warned us about and that's what the seedy underbelly of humanity turned into, more or less).

That all said about TO I'd probably go with the PSP version rather than the PSX version where you have to stop and grind after every stage early on because of the difference one level makes and the lack of options to compensate. Still probably better than FFT though by virtue of letting you field twice as many units giving a much larger scale to fights than FFT's five man teams. Also because you can't just slap Blade Grasp or Auto Potion on everybody and laugh at almost every plot battle.

As for what I'm currently doing I'm basically scouring the internet for information on that new Fire Emblem game due to not being certain on its chances outside of Japan and because I currently have nothing better to do than to practice eugenics (and throwing out job applications every week).

Less than a month to go folks.

how wonderful a cancelled game

Next up Square announces a game that doesn't exist.

The world doesn't need another Versus XIII.

Just keep believing! After all, it worked for Duke Nukem Forever.

I miss the days when we were still waiting for DNF.

If I remember Naruto correctly, it jumped the shark shortly after the first time skip where Sasuke became a villain and Naruto became the "I know Shotting Gun!" guy while the rest became irrelevant. Also it's weird how the series started with a Harry Potter sort of dynamic between the principal trio (if Harry Potter focused on the misadventures of orphan Ron while Harry was a brooding, show stealing twat).

Don't follow animu or manga news closely, but I'd like to know if there's is any new shonen series that has become the big thing lately? Just curious.

Not that I know of, but of course, I don't follow shonen very closely. I do know that One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach had been dominating the charts for the longest time until recently, when Bleach got knocked down a couple of pegs and is now confirmed to be Ending soon. I thought Fairy Tail was primed to take its spot on the charts, but I'm not sure if it did, or if some show I don't know about did.

EDIT: Oh boy, apparently Blue Excorcist took Bleach's spot on the charts way back in November. I remember one of my friends going on about that, and I finally gave it a watch - it was nothing special. I really wasn't surprised to see it only lasted 25 episodes.

Then there's Fairy Tail and some show about a cook.

I don't know if Soul Eater's still kicking around but if it is then that seemed entertaining enough.

Also, lol at people finally getting wise to Bleach's shenanigans of constantly reiterating the Soul Society arc and being batshit with its powerlevels in a less tolerable than DBZ/GT way.

Continuing to discuss all the features and gameplay modes said game was going to have before getting unceremoniously dumped into the vaporware zone.

So you're an idiot for revealing more information on a canned game? Plenty of people find it fascinating to learn about scrapped projects, so no, it is NOT dumber than hyping up an announcement without disclosing it's a shelved game.

A perfect example of this would be Megaman Legends 3.

Except that the details were coming out during the game's development before it got megacanned. Though once it got thrown under the bus (along with everything else Megaman) pretty much the only things said about the game since were the lack of fan support and the possibility of what had existed up to that point just not being up to snuff. No postmortem or anything.

At any rate though, I'm not getting the sense that Yoko Taro was involved with this game, and without his brand of craziness this game was probably doomed to being, at the very least, just another Drakengard! 2! if not another Bulletwitch. Which means that I've been a colossal idiot for getting peeved over something that turned out to be no big deal either way.

Can someone help me out because this is driving me bug fuck crazy.

I just met the gem man for the first time and he gave me two gems to equip to my weapon.

Every time I go into the menu, it only gives me the option to discard my weapon.

Am I not supposed to equip them yet or what?

Your weapon and other equipment have slots beneath them on the character page. Highlight those and press confirm to bring up your gem list and equip. Note that some pieces of equipment already have gems affixed to them (like the bikini); those are permanent and cannot be swapped out.

This looks a lot like XSeeD bit off way more than they could've chewed on this one. Maybe if they weren't in the middle of trying to bring the Ys and TitS games as well as stuff like The Last Story over they might've been able to handle this.

As it is though....fuck.
3551  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Siliconera to announce Squeenix "Exclusive" tomorrow on: May 01, 2012, 11:54:08 PM
So you know what's dumber than having an 'exclusive' on a canned game by a dismantled developer that has no chance in hell of being made?

3552  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Siliconera to announce Squeenix "Exclusive" tomorrow on: May 01, 2012, 05:38:48 AM

It's too bad that this wasn't Silconera exclusive otherwise I would've believed that this was what they were talking about (plus this would've been slightly less lame and I would've been right on one of my predictions).

Oh, I shot darrow at point blank and didn't get EXP, hmmmm

I suppose that he was going to give you EXP, but then he took an arrow to the knee.

  Having the 'Cancel' button as Triangle is seriously annoying to get used to when 99% of games have it as everything BUT that goddamn button. 

I tried playing Metal Gear Solid on PS1 about 2 years ago and this sort of thing had me trapped on the menu screen for a bit

Were you able to save Meryl without needing to use a turbo controller?
3555  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Siliconera to announce Squeenix "Exclusive" tomorrow on: April 30, 2012, 08:15:03 PM
A canned game made by the glorious bastards at Cavia? Fuck. The one thing I thought was too unlikely to even make my list of unlikely unannouncements.

That said, that was the best unannouncement by being the worst unannouncement. Bravo Silconera. Bravo.
