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.

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?

4071  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?

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.
4075  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Siliconera to announce Squeenix "Exclusive" tomorrow on: April 29, 2012, 06:36:02 PM
A 13 Versus update?

FFXV? Now instead of just the hallways or the characters being doused in neon it'll have everything in eye searing neon, including all the enemies.



Either an FFV or FFVI 3DS remake?

A Romancing SaGa 2 PSVita port?

My real guesses would include one of the following....
A) A Type-0 based anime.
B) DQX beta key giveaway.
C) An FF themed tower defense game.
or D) Some kind of crappy/useless mobile phone based social game.

So with Pokémon is the case of if it ain't broken, don't fix it? Well, that makes sense. After all last time I checked the games still sell well but that alone doesn't mean either that following a franchise that is afraid of taking risks can be boring and tedious.

Though, for the little I've saw in forums it seems that people is really more than satisfied with the same old thing.

...that still doesn't stop this group of crazy people that wants a Pokémon MMO.

Makes sense within the game world.  Everyone is out to train their little pocket monsters in the game world too, so I could see it.  I think it would be a nightmare to oversee though.  And yeah, I could see people getting really pissed if the franchise tried to do anything too different.

Plus it has more or less become a competitive sport to a certain degree. If they change up the mechanics now it'd be like making the transition from the GB/C to GBA which to some people would be an inexcusable waste of the time spent over the last decade in making their tweeked out murder teams full of ribbons, shinnies, and event exclusives.

The single player mode at this point is more of a feature and a source for more grinding, catching, breeding, award-winning, and accessorizing opportunities.

Pokemon is the biggest Not-MMO MMORPG in existence, and I dare say bigger than WoW.
4077  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Sony's Smash Bros. on: April 28, 2012, 06:23:56 PM
Er...they've only announced six characters.

Yeah this. While some of the characters they introduced were kinda lame (That dude from Killzone? Really?), they still have way more to announce, and I'm sure there are plenty of characters that people have a fondness for. Sly Cooper is already in there, so throw in Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, and Kevin Butler and I for one will be sold. ;P

With that said, I was always under the impression the Smash Bros. did well because it was a good game that people enjoyed...

It also helped that you have A) characters people are familiar with, B) a large and diverse enough pool of resources to borrow from, and C) characters that people aren't so familiar with that open up new aspects of the company that people generally weren't aware of before.

If Sony could bring something obscure to the table rather than just their latest and greatest like a Legacy of Kain or Legend of Dragoon character or two it'd help tremendously in diversifying the roster.
4078  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Sony's Smash Bros. on: April 27, 2012, 06:37:15 PM

So apparently it's Super Smash Bros. but instead of kicking people off the stage, throwing people off the stage, being a douche and holding the edge of the stage while dooming the other guy to fall off the stage, environmental hazards tossing people off the stage, and so on you only get to use final smashes to down an opponent.

Nice Sony. Very nice. Next you're going to be telling us that all stages will be like Final Destination, instead of just one or two.
4079  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Sting and Idea Factory performs the Fu-Sion-Ha dance and becomes Super Sting on: April 27, 2012, 06:21:44 PM

We've got some gameplay videos and it looks like Sting's bringing their usual obtuse game design style for this one. The game's looking like Knights in the Nightmare with IF characters/artwork; the best of both worlds.

Awkward Zombie is awesome.

Oh you son of a bitch. XD
