And here's the launch trip report. That online download thing sounds nasty.


Edit: More details here, here, and here.

Weird that it's set it 1492 rather than modern day.

I wonder if they chose that date for a specific reason?

Possibly because at one point you'll be sailing the ocean blue?

The question is what's the Japanese equivalent to the name Christopher Columbus?

It occurs to me that, given what we know of thus far, with the game featuring heavily armed men running around the countryside busting in the heads of demons and other religious and mythological figures, and the unlikeliness that this game will involve vast quantities of sailing the ocean blue, that we'd be more correct to expect a Japanese/SMT-ified Spanish Inquisition (though Columbus, or 'Koronbusu', shenanigans might still feature).

Man. You'd think this shit would've been run into the ground by now but...





...there's still gold left in this mine.

Oh fine. If that's the way you want to play it.

Granted this is firmly within rumor territory, but at least it's something.

Some setting and character details for SMT IV.

Hope you have fun storming the castle as a secret agent Samurai upholding the Demon Hunters' Creed.

On the other hand it should make it easier to grind for Monster Hearts. Although this seems to suggest something else might be included.


New screens. Purely from a graphical perspective, it looks like a completely new game. Amusingly, my first reaction was horror at seeing the return of those obnoxious crystal puzzles from the first island.

Also, no random encounters, as you can tell by the field screen.

PS: Gabo looks adorable.

What's nice is being able to see your own party rather than the usual enemy only. It even looks like either wearing certain ensembles or being in certain classes (or maybe mastering a class) changes your appearance.

Also:

:argh: GRACOS!!!!! :argh:

maybe im just weird but i preferred mario 3 over SMW. just like how i prefer sonic 2 over sonic 3.

My beefs with SMB3 mostly include the lack of a save feature and being HUGE (especially for the time it came out in) and it's almost impossible to go through the entire thing in a single sitting and not just skipping worlds and taking shortcuts. You can't just go through it at your own leisure like you can with SMW, plus it was admittedly fun to carve a path through the wilds of Dinosaur Land while looking for stages and secrets.

That said though, both the spin jump and Yoshi were overpowered and while the Cape Feather was cooler than the Raccoon Leaf it, the Yoshis (Yoshii?), and the P-Balloon were a poor substitute to the still unmatched-to-this-day variety of SMB3's powerups.

Though I will agree with you on Sonic 2 being better than Sonic 3. The Chaos Emerald minigame was better, the stages outside of the first zone were better, and there was no fucking Barrel.

Estelle encounters a buckyball monster!



That's not a buckyball monster. That's a buckyball Metroid! Skree~

Not depicted: The game's equally brilliant dialogue such as "Fuck You!", "You have the right to remain silent.", "You have the right to remain SILENT!!!", "When the fuck will these guys give up already?", and "FUCK!!!" among other pithy one-liners/canned phrases.

Finally got around to watching all of Claymore on Blu-Ray. The series was epic. I reminded me of a all female cast version of Berserk. Although one of my biggest frustrations was figuring out which claymore was which. There were so many of them and they all referred to each other for the most part by their rank in the organization (i.e. 1-47). Tackle that on with the blue/gray/dark mono-chromatic color scheme it's a bit of a challenge. Sticking points aside, it was a great action fast paced series. Highly recommend to all who haven't seen it yet.

Good luck with the manga then. Because it has the exact same problem with the bonus prize being everything's in black and white. That said, you should check out the manga since despite the anime's 'ending' dicking itself over the story doesn't actually stop there or even go there (last two or three episodes were a cop-out ending much like the second season of the original FMA anime).


Also why didn't anybody tell me that Studio 4C were handling the new Thundercats anime. That's grounds for a three episode test right there.

Well shit!

At least Nintendo is pretty good at fixing things.

The biggest difference between P5 and Versus XIII is simply the fact we have yet to actually SEE P5. It's definitely worse when they show something... and 6 years later still haven't put it out. P5 will probably only be shown once they're actually 6 MONTHS from release.

Yeah they kind of did that with Persona 3 as well.

No rumours at all about it, then suddenly BLAM - surprise! Here's Persona 3!

As for Bravely Default, the game just came out in Japan. I wouldn't be surprised to see it announced at next year's E3.

As someone that works in the IT industry, building up pre-release hype before you actually have a product is about the dumbest goddamn thing you can do /seriously/.

Correction. The dumbest goddamn thing you can do is building up pre-release hype before you actually know what your product even is, nevermind actually having one instead of just a drawing board with a bunch of random and disconnected assets covering it.
