2371  The Rest / General Discussions / I don't remember falling asleep last night! on: March 20, 2008, 07:40:50 PM
Hmm, we're about at the same place in LO, Prime Mover.

Anyway, I only recall falling asleep once while gaming and it was while watching .Hack//GU volume 3's (the final one) ending.  Kinda strange that I played/drudged through all 3 games yet fell asleep during the final scenes.  From what I remember, I don't recall missing much anyhow =P

though I skipped around and landed on a scene about the Velvet Room with Igor. I was shocked to notice they are using the SAME EXACT song. Not different, not even a little bit. They just re-used it.


Persona 2 Innocent Sin and Persona 2 Eternal Punishment both used the same song except lower quality and no singing (just piano).

I'm glad they kept it... except it almost looks like a velvet room ran by P. Diddy.


But you do realize those are still both really the same game, split into two right?


How could I know that they have the same velvet room music but not know the two games were related?  

Annnyways,  something that I missed the first time I scanned the details of P4 was the length.  1.5x the length of Persona 3?  That seems insanely long to me.  Persona 3 kept me hooked the whole way through, but I'm wondering (and hoping) if Persona 4 could keep me interested 1.5 times that?

I'm not watching the trailer - not if you guys say it's spoilery.
But it seems like the odd numbered ones will focus on high school kids while the even numbered ones have a bit more of a horror feel to them.
At least that's the pattern I'm detecting.


I watched some of it and while I did skip parts (it's 14 minutes long), unless you are fluent in Japanese (which you might be, I don't know) it's probably not all that spoilerish.  But, better safe than sorry.  Game sounds good and I wouldn't want to be spoiled either.

It looks good. I didn't watch the whole trailer though because it's too spoilerish for me, just some scenes here and there. Music sounds similar to P3, but it isn't necessarily a bad thing.

No evokers this time.


You bring up a good point.  Most of the P3 movies released were chock full of spoilers but they might not have been necessarily noticeable what was going on unless you were actually playing it.  I found a couple P3 movies on my HD yesterday that I downloaded off the official site last summer and was surprised at how many spoiler scenes from P3 were shown such as (late P3 spoilers obviously)
Code:
the protagonists hung up on crosses with Aegis aiming at them and the scene where Chidori revives Junpei at the cost of her own life.

A trailer for Persona 4 has appeared online (possible spoilers):

download: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=17IQPILY
streaming:  Gametrailers

Haven't had time to watch it yet, but so far things sound pretty good from the details released.  I don't care that the battle system is similar as long as there is more than one dungeon this time.

Back when I was a complete anime fanboy, I couldn't stand Slayers.  Even though I don't think it's supposed to be serious, the whole comedy aspect was a turn-off.  I can't remember ever selling a dvd set on ebay as fast as I sold that one =P

Thanks Lard.

There's also some more pictures (magazine scans only at the moment) over at: http://www.rpgamer.com/games/persona/persona4/propaganda/persona4propaganda031808-1.html .
2379  The Rest / General Discussions / WiiWare Devs: Xbox Live Arcade is "full of shit" on: March 16, 2008, 04:16:02 PM
Ah, well, I'm not in too much of a position to judge that.  My friend downloaded the demo off XBL and I only saw it for a minute or two.  The original dreamcast art was pretty damn good so I'm not surprised that it's not better since it's just an xbl arcade game.

Even though I own a 360, I have never seen all the titles available on xbox live arcade.

I have, however, played a few like Lumines, Super Puzzle Fighter HD, and the remade Bomberman and those particular games are pretty fucking fun and redone well.  I can't really see xbox live's being any worse than Nintendo's.  They both seem to have their merits.

I haven't watched the old series in a couple years, but I don't recall anyone ever sticking their heads in the sand in the series on purpose.  The only time someone ever gets their head/body covered with sand is when a certain character is trying to kill somebody.

Still makes no sense to me =P

Quote from: "dalucifer0"
I watched 25 minutes of Superbad before I took it out of the PS3. Terrible movie. Apatow needs to learn spewing "shit" and "fuck" as many times as possible doesn't make a movie funny. The only two parts I laughed at is when Seth was pretending to do stuff to Jewel behind her back and when he was telling his friend about how he used to be obsessed with drawing penises.


Imo it's worth finishing.  I felt the first part (what you watched) was the slowest part of it all.  It gets better after that.

How is Ganondorf in this version?  He was my favorite one on Melee so I'm curious as to how he handles.

I'm with Eusis.  I'd much rather it be exclusive.  Let's see what the PS3 can "do". Of course that means purchasing a ps3 (for me at least) but I'll end up buying one eventually anyway.

Quote from: "Ramza"
In fact, the smartest business move I can imagine is that Sony does a price drop of the PS3 ($350 for their premium, highest-HD-sized model) in conjunction with the release of FF13. That will effectively kill the 360 in Japan, and bolster Sony support in North America. Don't think it won't happen. :)


Didn't Sony recently shrink the blu-ray laser?  They said it's supposed to cut production costs a good bit which is supposed to lead to a price cut sometime this year (perhaps Christmas).  Of course, that's only if this is all true.  

Quote from: "Ramza"
But I'm convinced FFXIII and Vs.XIII will stay PS3 exclusive.


I am as well.  Whatever happened to (1), (2) ,(3), and  (4) - though I thought this one was busted since the reporting of the White Engine being able to be used on mutliple consoles.. but I guess it could be used for Infinite Undiscovery but I really have no clue

(edit: (5) kinda biased.. if Chris keeps his famitsu around he could probably confirm it since the scan is too small

Whether any of these links are true or not, the skeptic in me thinks Sony wouldn't mind dishing out some major bucks to keep FF13 exclusive.

Been watching Kekkaishi since it has semi-decent ratings.  I haven't watched much so far but it looks like it's going to be an Inu-yasha demon of the month type clone.  Still i'm pretty interested in watching it.

Might also try to watch Teppa Leppa Tengen Lengen or something eventually as well.
