Why does nintendo suck so hard at making hardware?
http://www.joystiq.com/2012/10/18/wii-u-voice-chat-sounds-pretty-complicated/

I don't get why it matters so much. It's the same game whether it's in HD or not. The Mario Galaxy games look quite fantastic already. I was very impressed by them.

Braveheart looked great but I'm not ready to plug my VCR into my new tv to watch my old tape. What's "not to get?" People have been bitching about the resolution for the Wii forever, I'm not treading new ground here.

Okay, seriously, that's not even a fair comparison. VHSes are notoriously hard on the celluloid film within cassettes and after a while the film will break through wear and tear and the machine will probably get clogged with the wreckage which will likely wreck it in the process. Besides, you're talking about the difference of using 30 year old tech versus 5 year old tech. Hell, even VHS's successors are getting phased out in favor of the internet and sites like Hulu and Netflix.

Yeah....



No. Not even.

Even when the character designs stop both sucking and blowing chunks outright they're still pretty damn god awful.

There is literally no redeeming value for this game whatsoever. And remember what I said about having to actually import the game and the cost associated with that? You couldn't give me this game for free even if you covered every cost because it would still cost me time and effort to pitch it out the window ASAP let alone actually having to pay hard earned money on both the game and the shipping costs.

Man, Criminal Girls sucked when it first came out nevermind now. Not even worth the cost to import and ship in a bundle let alone on its own.

Nuga Cell, ehh. I could take it or leave it either way. Still too expensive to import on its own at least. But at least I'll probably have better luck getting it through customs than Criminal Girls.

SE releases 90% of their RPGs in the west so I don't see how they're lazy. FFXIII and XIII-2 are only 2 games out of many others that they bring over. This also includes Complication titles, which we don't get all the games in anyway.

The only reason you don't see a lot really niche series like SaGa over here is pretty obvious, they sell like shit. This especially true in current market.

So are you saying that Dragon Quest is a niche series? Because we only got VI & IX due to Nintendo picking up the distribution slack.

I have a really affinity for halloween specials... well I never knew it existed, but I just watched "Halloween is Grinch Night" from 1977.... yes the Grinch, as in the Christmas Grinch....  in a halloween special.... Maybe this was common knowledge to everyone, but I was shocked at the discovery of this short little musical....I absolutely suggest it if you appreciate either Dr. Seus or old cartoons.....

Anyone else have any halloween specials they love?
We own it. My wife found a copy a couple years back. It's weird as hell. and not very "Halloweenish" at all. I haven't watched it since the initial viewing.

We always watch the Garfield Halloween, and, of course, Great Pumpkin.
I recently realized that I don't own Nightmare Before Christmas on dvd or Blu, otherwise we'd be watching that as well.



I'm trying to remember the Garfield Halloween special and I'm coming up with a blank (as it only features John Arbuckle making goofball statements to himself). Really, the only Halloween specials I tend to watch are Great Pumpkin, and when I'm with my folks, Hocus Pocus. Of course I have a tendency to watch really awful SyFy original pictures cuz they're hilarious as hell and make the best MST3k fodder that I can manage freestyle.

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.

I think the biggest update to Versus since its announcement was the fact that the main guy ditched his not quite ripping off Naruto's Sasuke's outfit for some bland boy band attire to fit in with the rest of his boy bland.

Of course pretty much every other time Versus is brought up it always goes as follows "No progress has been made since the last time we brought it up as we've pulled people off the team to work on _____, but we assure you that it still exists, just don't expect anything in the meanwhile. Also don't expect Kingdom Hearts 3 until after we give up on Versus.".

Just started Rule of Rose for Halloween.

.....Oh dear!

Is that a good oh dear or a bad oh dear.

(I'm about two and a half hours in.....this game is *messed up*.)

The *messed up* oh dear.
4118  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: October 17, 2012, 03:41:40 PM
Anyone import?
If this won't come here.... .... I'll... I dunno, but I'll be damned sad.  I'm surprised Squeenix is really not considering plans for it -- did handhelds underperform THAT much?

I hear an apparent end game spoiler tries to make the title less ridiculous.
To anyone with morbid curiosity (and I don't even know if it's right)....

Apparently the fairy that travels with you, on the game case, named Airy tricks you to destroying the world.  The game is so much like Final Fantasy, but it ain't, so if you take out the "FF" from "Flying Fairy" you get "Lying Airy".  World blown.  Maybe.

I don't think its handhelds so much as its Squeenix being lazy fucks.

Sure they'll dump their awful fanfictions like the FFXIII trilogy but god forbid they release anything decent like their non compilation FFs, their DS Dragon Quest titles, or even other games like their SaGa remakes.

Also the puns in that spoiler puts the ones I made in my previous post to shame in their awfulness.

So i've had this for xbox forever and never got around to it. I'll probably wait for this one since someone hear was mentioning game breaking bugs for the original

That was me. I found a game breakiing bug right near the end of the game and I ended up having to watch the ending on youtube.

I was kind of pissed. Hopefully it will be fixed in this version.

Going from this that may very well be addressed.

"Speaking with science writer, Kaoru Takeuchi, about the Persona series in a Famitsu.com feature, Katsura Hashino mentions that development of the next numbered Persona game is making progress."

"Hashino will be returning as the director of Persona 5, and will be joined by Shoji Meguro as composer and Shigenori Soejima as character designer. Back in late 2011, Hashino also revealed that Persona 5 uses an internal Atlus engine." -- Source: Siliconera

Just like Versus XIII. Keep waiting... please.

Unlike Versus XIII you can have one of a dozen or so versions of other Persona games and enjoy it because they don't suck like every FF game that could be bothered to be release outside of Japan.

Seriously? No plans on bringing either Type-0 or Bravely Default out of Japan yet? What's next? Can't be bothered to release motherfucking Tomb Raider without a publisher/distributor?

The combat and driving are kinda clunky but it's still a solid game in the characterization department.

I'd be good if they could do something to improve the weapons or lessen the annoyance of fighting (I don't really care about the driving as driving like a maniac is hilarious in its own right, especially when you've got passengers on board).

Popped Xenoblade in. I had played it for an hour or so when I first got it(April?) and haven't touched it since. I've just been daunted by the time requirement. Anyway, I said screw it, and am now playing. It took me a little while to get used to it all again.
Is there really no manual attack for battles? I was looking for it in the menus, but saw no "manual" option anywhere.
The game has such a great "feel" to it. Great music, too. We'll see how far I get into it.


No. Nor does it need it since most of your combat time will be playing around with Arts and Chain Combos. If anything Auto Attacks makes things easier since it means that you don't have to worry about wasting time or efficiency when picking out Arts to use.
