Who are these people. I remember none of this.

Me too, man.  There's like maybe 2 or 3 names on that whole page I even recognize...

Did you guys live through the same 2000s I did?

KanColle server maintenance has begun.

Once it's finished, it's new event time!  There hasn't been an event in a while.  Let's see if I'm high enough level now to kick this thing's butt.

I don't even know what you're arguing anymore.  You seem to be saying that  Xseed can't release PS4 games since there are no PS4 games for them to release...in the context of discussing a PS4 game they could release.

I might add to Mickeymac's comment that doing a Vita version just for the US (since the games have been released to death already in Japan) would be pretty absurd considering the Vita isn't even doing well here.  I bet you even if they had a Vita version day-and-date with the PC release the PC release would still sell more.  By a lot.

Didn't Xseed say they were looking into a digital PSP (and therefore Vita) release of TitS 2?

Yakuza Ishin looks fantastic on PS4.  Of course it looks pretty good on PS3 too...

But yea, I thought Akiba's Trip 2 was pretty ugly even on PS3.  Not really a prime candidate for an HD remake...

It feels so weird that we got 4 Tales games this year (Symphonia HD, Symphonia DotW HD, Xillia 2, Hearts R).

Is this like... Real life?

More like a living hell.

You think getting a series of fun games (that you are in way way obligated to purchase if you really don't want to) is "a living hell"?

I don't even't even know what to say to that.  There's hyperbole and then there's just being ridiculous.

Wouldn't the fact that there's not a ton coming out for PS4 make the ones that are coming out more valuable?

SAO is a popular anime about people trapped in a MMORPG.  Despite the name the game isn't online at all, it's single-player.
10  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: April 22, 2014, 02:21:34 PM
Really didn't expect this...

Sure SAO is popular, but this is a Vita-exclusive anime tie-in game from friggin Bandai Namco.  The company that refused to release the Vita version of their One Piece game in NA even when they were releasing the PS3 version already (and it was the exact same game so it's not like that would have taken extra localization work).  Between this and Hearts R maybe they've actually decided to stop running away from NA Vita releases.

I don't recall having to pay any shipping costs but that might be because I took it to a Sony Store and they mailed it from there, rather than being sent straight from/to my home.

It's not really a 'repair', though.  Pretty sure the PS3 they gave me was brand new.  (I had an old fat one, I ended up receiving the latest slim model...).

But I've heard plenty of stories about people never getting discs back that were stuck in their PS3s after sending them in.  It doesn't seem well-organized in that respect.  I still recommend opening it up yourself to get the disc even if you're going to send it in.  It's out of warranty anyway.

Frankly I find the idea that the editorial would use If My Heart Had Wings as an example of 'good' censorship completely ludicrous.  That game is absolutely censorship at its worst.  It's nothing like Mugen Souls where the cut content had little effect on the core game.  One of the character routes had to be re-written basically from scratch since the original story revolved around starting as sex friends and slowly transitioning into an actual relationship.  On top of that there are the total excesses pointed out by TiamatNM.  They really did edit things like kissing.  I mean, WTF?  Why?  It's estimated that about 50% of the CGs in the game were either cut or edited in some way.  Seriously, 50%. 

If MoeNovel wanted to release a 'clean' VN they really should have picked a different title to work with...

The editorial's defense of If My Heart Had Wings seems to be entirely based on pointed out that there are douchebags out there giving low metacritic scores to a game they haven't played.  Which might be true, but two wrongs do not make a right.  That in no way invalidates the legitimate criticisms that have been made about the game.  And the editorial doesn't even address these criticisms.  In fact it mostly just talks about games that didn't have ero content to start with...which doesn't have anything to do with censorship.  Being anti-censorship is not the same thing as advocating that all games have to have ero content.

I think we'll see XSeed and Atlus stay on PS3 for a while.

It's cheaper for them, just like it was for PS2.

Um, Xseed is just a translator/publisher.  They go where the games are.

I don't even know what you're talking about with regards to cost...the cost of translating is not affected by the platform.  Nor does Sony charge people more to release something on PS4.
14  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Akiba's Trip 2 on: April 19, 2014, 03:55:19 PM
So an enhanced PS4 version of the game was just announced.

I wonder if Xseed is going to bring that over...

If you're feeling adventurous it's not that hard to disassemble a PS3 to get a disc out of the drive.

(Speaks from experience...)
