... Also how long till MS Office gets ported to the XBox.

Shit, I...

Microsoft isn't positioning the XBox as a game console or a PC but as a device that hooks up to your TV and gets to be a central fixture of your /home/. The tablet is portable, but it's not part of your home because it's not bound to it. The living room is, though. The TV is. The XBone is.

What they're doing actually makes SENSE. PCs aren't cool anymore but something that augments your TV is (even if it ultimately... is the same thing).

It's a (somewhat limited) PC that they're marketing as something better than a PC by marketing it as something DIFFERENT than a PC.

... This is the stupidest fucking thing and it could seriously work completely how they're intending.

At least until Hulu and other online content providers start charging you on top of what you'd normally pay because of their software that detects whether you're trying to view them from something other than a PC like they did with Google TV (which is why nobody has Google TV).

Then again, with the way cable companies have been cutting services and ratcheting up prices all over the place these days, it feels like we're in an arms race to see which shit lord will be king of shit mountain.

^Fans are still waiting for Vesperia? Like, for real?

Tales of fans man. They're almost as crazy as FF fans.

Too bad the image quality of the gif isn't high enough for me to get a make on the guy in the line dance's face because he looks kinda familiar (actually he's probably not the guy I'm thinking of since he isn't wearing glasses).

But where's the WiiU tablet? Also can't tell what's the on the popular anime sheet (though I wouldn't be surprised if its Naruto or Bleach).

PXZ: Finished chapter 7. Game's getting a bit less ridiculous about the amount of breakable kibble everywhere (plus I'm starting to get enough people to deal with it all). Anyways, I've since recruited the Reiji/Xiaomu (the NxC originals), Soma/Alisa (God Eater clowns), Gemini/Erica (various Sakura Taisen female leads), Zephyr/Leanne (the other John Woo/Gun Fu Resonance of Fate characters), and Kite/Blackrose (from dotHack for the uninitiated) with Vashyron (the best character) and Lindow (another GE clown) for support.

Oh my!

But, er, what timezone's 4th/6th?

That is, will those of us in North America be getting information tomorrow?


Now whether the news is about the latest overpriced DLC sold piecemeal or not is the question.

Oh god. You just reminded me of that awesome Neogif thread about the video game boxarts of the future. Now I miss that thread. :(

Collect all seven to unlock an extra bonus mission where you protect a small Japanese village from bandits. :p

Goddammit PXZ. Did you really have to introduce breakable kibble into environments and semi randomly hide items in them? I'm spending more time satisfying my OCD curiosity than I am on the actual fights themselves. Never the less, thank you for making kibble removal a free action instead of a bust object/end turn deal like other SRPGs would do (then again, such games don't scatter such kibble all over the fucking stage and be semi-unpredictable about whether loot is present or not either).

Anyways, beat chapter 3. I now have the game's originals, Chun Li/Morgan, Akira/Pai Chan, and Frank West/Lei-Lei with Bahn and Tron Bonne as available supports.

For those who've been sitting on their hands, now's the time to get in on Soul Hackers.

EDGE should have put in the front "Where is your God now Xbots!?" instead. :P

The best part though is the PS4 + Xbone games special, followed immediately by the rest of the cover basically telling you to disregard the Xbone.

Meanwhile, on the SRW front. OE continues to look excellent.

Its also nice to see OYW Gundam and crew again.

I need to stop reading this thread or else there won't be any surprise outfits when the game finally comes out.

Wait... Cloud's clothes like FF7 Cloud or Advent Children/DoC Cloud?

Vanilla FFVII.
4213  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Best **Badass** Moments in games on: July 02, 2013, 12:52:50 AM
I thought that Blitzball FMV at the beginning of FFX, after Tidus gets done signing autographs and acting all cool with the crowd, was pretty badass.  It looked like a rough, badass, futuristic sport, like underwater rugby, with a metal song playing in the background.  Tidus even had that look when he sent that opposing player flying into the stands.   

Too bad he turned out to be one of those entitled, kinda spoilt-bratty, whiny type jocks with "first world problem" daddy issues. 

Don't forget that the game itself wasn't that hot either, and got really boring really fast.

Which reminds me, why does everyone adore Auron for being a badass?  Give a guy some shades and a giant sword and, voila, badass??
Yeah, I liked that Titus cutscene at the start too.  90% of jocks are much more calmer and cooler than he is.

That's pretty much my guess. Having an ensemble almost lifted straight out of Naruto didn't help matters either. (Even though Sephiroth was even more overrated for an almost entirely black outfit, long flowing white hair, and eyes as bishe as whoa (then again, he also had a long ass sword and a dead chick mounted on his mantle).)

Actually, my real guess is that teenagers are fucking morons. Especially if the majority of their literary experience derives from those little text boxes in video games or comic book speech bubbles.

Kinda like Wolverine really. Give a guy the ability to not die ever, claws, an attitude, and a bunch of super friends to attitude at while making them look like chumps, and watch like a dozen comic book mini series and nearly half a dozen movies about the guy roll on in.

And getting back on the subject yet again, the second fight in Riovanes Castle in FFT (provided you aren't brick walled by it). Namely because you just wrecked the guy who just wrecked an entire castle nearly single-handed plus his pals (plus you just got through probably the most difficult battle in a game with several difficult battles).

Alright Atlus/Marvelous/Sega/Namdai. I put my money on Project X Zone. Ball's in your court now. Localize SRW:OGs2/VC3.

Ah, but it was decided just after you left the chat. I was going to do Suikoden II, but people didn't feel comfortable with that. In the end it was settled the game would be...

*~Quiz #4 - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)~*
Date: July 13th 2013
Time: (Countdown Clock Here!)

Having never played a Zelda game before, my boyfriend will be making the questions for this quiz. I'll still be researching them to make sure they are airtight though.

I got one!

What color was the cartridge originally?

A: Gold.

Q: What is the least possible number of hearts needed to beat the game with?

A: I'll tell you once I perform my minimalist run on the game.
