So apparently this will be getting a PS3 and Vita release in North America.  Pretty cool, we don't get a lot of pure VNs on consoles here.

Edit: Europe too, it looks like.

Triple log-in bonuses in Love Live right now.  In addition to the normal daily bonus and the UR card thing I mentioned (you also get a gem everyday until the card), they're also running a promotion to celebrate reaching 10 million users and giving out even more gems for that.  If you're playing the game you really should make sure to log in everyday for the next couple of weeks.  If you're not currently playing it but think you might be interested...now might be the time to start.

But-but....the Japanese subtitled trailer was so much better. D:

Much better!

More accurate, too.  I don't really get what they were trying to do with the dub...it's not a literal translation and it's certainly not a natural-sounding translation.

Yeah, who likes browser games!  They're terrible.

Important info for everyone who plays Love Live:
They are giving away an idolized UR card and all you have to do is log in 5 times (I assume once per day?  It's written kind of ambiguously) between December 16 and January 15.  Talk about easy to get.

Poor Vita can't catch a break.  People are always complaining about the lack of exclusives but when an exclusive is announced they complain that it's not on system X.  There's no way to win...

Do people really complain about that? Not counting the backlog, I think I can count the number of NON-exclusives on the Vita on my fingers.

Are you serious?  "No exclusives" is by far the biggest complaint I hear about the Vita.  And while 'no' might be an exaggeration, it certainly is true that there are a whole lot of ports on the system.  Not to mention that it's actually lost exclusivity for things like Tearaway.

PS: I love the Vita, and I agree with Agent D. that it seems to get an awful lot of undeserved flak.

I really liked The Girl Who Leapt through time but I found Summer Wars to be a pretty big let-down.  And I still haven't gotten around to watching Wolf Children...

In the category "games that won't ever get localized"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buRrdnZTMVA



game is:
夏色ハイスクル★青春白書 ~転校初日のオレが幼馴染と再会したら報道部員にされていて激写少年の日々はスクープ­大連発でイガイとモテモテなのに何故かマイメモリーはパンツ写真ばっかり という現実と­向き合いながら考えるひと夏の島の学園生活と赤裸々な恋の行方。~

or:
High School Colour of Summer - Youthful Days White Paper: The story of my summer island school life and the whereabouts of my bare-naked love as I face up to the reality of the fact that on my first day as a transfer student at a new school I met an old friend who made me join the school newspaper and spent my days as a shock-snap photographer boy getting scoop after scoop but despite this making me surprisingly popular with girls the only thing in my memory is the panty photos

I don't know, we got Akihabara'S trip and that's a game I would've written off as ungettable. I'd say that the possibility exists, given how crazy Marvelous or XSeeD can be at times.

Akiba's Trip is one of those games that sounds much worse in premise than it is in execution.  The whole stripping thing is played off more for comedy than titillation, and despite being a core mechanic for the gameplay they don't really dwell on it.  No drawn-out fanservice shots or anything, it just happens.  Not to mention that for once there's actually gender-equality in the clothing destruction department.  You'll be stripping just as many men as women.  How many games can you say that about?

Anyway, I think Senran Kagura might actually be a better example of Xseed pushing boundaries.  Still, both Senran Kagura and Akiba's Trip have core gameplay that goes beyond just being a perv.  I'm not sure this game does...

I was usually overleveled for the fanatics tower in FFVI because I would hold off on it until after getting Umaro.  (What do you mean I can't attack?  I never listened to your commands in the first place.  Smash!)  Meaning I would usually just be able to survive ultima.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-12-09-tekken-7s-chief-designer-upset-over-reaction-to-divisive-lucky-chloe-character

Oh brother.  To the whole article.  The new character, to the silly response, everything. 
Then again, I don't really take Tekken too seriously to begin with.

Here's a link to the infamous Lucky Chloe character


There seems to be a lot of stupidity on display here, on all sides.  But I think what bothers me the most is the idea what NeoGAF is somehow the spokesperson for North American gamers.  What?  I don't agree with like 90% of the shit posted on that site...

Citizen Kane Returns, now on blu-ray

;)

Well for starters they probably should have just called it "Final Fantasy VII" instead of "Final Fantasy VII Returns" (that's literally what they're calling it).  Who the heck gives a straight port a new title?

Mind you I'm also in the camp that they shouldn't remake it.

If we had a topic for this game already I couldn't find it.  But anyway, a 16 minute gameplay clip was shown at the Playstation Experience event and it looks great:
