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...)

Somewhere, on some site, people still complain that it's not Vesperia PS3.

Hah!  This is so true....

It feels like there have been a ton of seemingly unlikely localization announcements lately.  In fact I'm running out of titles to complain about not being localized...well, there's still Sega at least...

I don't even...

So there hasn't been a single Hatsune Miku concert in the US since the one they did at AX in 2011, now all of the sudden she's touring with Lady Gaga.  Which would actually be kind of neat, except tickets for those concerts went on sale months ago so if you wanted to see this for Miku then good luck getting a ticket...

Today I made a big yellow T to put on my head.

Nothing wrong with that.  I'd like to think that anyone can enjoy My Balls.

Though My Balls might not be appropriate for young children...

Everything seems really well done, the music got me to back it.

From their video:
"We realized there's really been nothing new in the RPG market for the past, I'd say decade or so"

How am I even supposed to take these guys seriously when they kick off with a ridiculous statement like that?

I think it's pretty obvious that deathsaber has never actually played an eroge.  I do find it a little amusing how he can defend something like this game while simultaneously looking down on eroge when they actually have a lot more in common than he thinks...

I literally have no idea what you're talking about, Annubis...

I wouldn't be too sure, the Escha and Logy localization wasn't particularly good.

Well so long as they didn't leave Japanese text in the game completely untranslated and introduce new bugs that weren't in the original Japanese version then they still did a better job than NISA did with AT2...

20 minute Half-Life speedrun

This is too fast.  I don't even understand what I'm seeing half the time...
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust making a spiritual successor to Ar Tonelico: Ar no Surge on: April 14, 2014, 11:01:38 PM
Oh, well I'm in Phase 3 so maybe I'm closer to the end than I thought...

uh oh...abrupt ending incoming.

Well, I don't know about that.  These phases can be pretty long.
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: April 14, 2014, 11:01:08 PM
So nobody is talking about this?  The listing has been taken down now, but it seems unlikely they would have made it in the first place if there wasn't something in the works...

In terms of the main plot it's pretty wordy but nothing completely outrageous.  So above-average amounts of text but certainly still doable.  But then you start adding in all the side conversations, dive stuff, field conversations (which aren't that bad but they're new in this game), and of course the shop conversations.  And while shop conversations aren't a new thing they feel particularly wordy this time around.  Like they're as dense as in the more recent Atelier games except in those games the main plot is way smaller.  And then you can go back to the same shops with different characters and get entirely new conversations about every single item.  Then on top of all of that there's a pretty extensive glossary for all the unfamiliar terms in the game (which there are a lot of) and there multi-page entries for many of them.

It just feels like a lot of stuff to cover.  I've put like 50+ hours into the game now, don't feel like I'm particularly close to the end, and keep in mind that I've been complaining about how short the combat sections are.  While that's gotten a little better it's still not great.  So that 50+ hours has mostly been spent reading (well, or listening when there's voice acting but there are so many lines a significant fraction do not have voice acting)...
