Going to go ahead and say it: the game's visuals are thematically all over the place.  What the fuck is even going on.  You have members of NSync riding around in a cadillac who drive by a giant fucking turtle, a turtle that I guess never bothers to travel anywhere near any modern architecture that you see in the far off distance because such a giant creature would make it impossible to build anything that would last, and then the boyband occasionally hops out and fights some bad guys that are dressed in medieval-like armor?

Well, I don't actually know the story but from the character's reactions I strongly suspect that the giant turtle thing isn't something that normally appears...so I'm not buying your complaint about the architecture.

I'll grand you the random dudes in medieval armor, though.  That didn't make much sense...


And Klutz, I totally agree about the music.  Of course this is just a short trailer, but that was really good.

New Trailer

Also, Nomura has officially stepped down as director and Tabata is taking over.

It definitely looks more like a real game in this trailer.  There's less of the crazy flying around stuff we say before...which is probably for the best.  It looked cool but realistically I never really understood how you were supposed to control it.  This looks like an action RPG.  Less revolutionary, sure, but also easier to see how it will actually play.

Square Enix announced Final Fantasy Agito+ for Vita.  It's a port of the smartphone spin-off of Type-0 (which from what I've heard isn't very good...).

After all the clamoring for Type-0 itself on the Vita this does feel like a bit of a slap in the face.  Oh, here's a port of a smartphone game nobody liked!

Oh well, probably won't even get an English release anyway...

I just found out that Hatsune Miku is going to be on Letterman on Oct. 8th.

This is going to be awkward...

If they want to get me hyped about FFXV again then all they need to do is make a good game.  I'm with Taelus on this.  It's been a long road...but so what?  It's not like I wake up every morning going "where's FFXV now?!".  It hasn't really affected me.

Incidentally I feel the same way about The Last Guardian.

Now of course there are people who ran out to buy PS3s when they saw the FFvXIII trailer and then were probably disappointed when the game got delayed so much it's not even on PS3 anymore.  But if there's a lesson from that it's, "don't buy systems for games that aren't out yet, or don't even have a definite release date".  I mean heck, stuff gets canceled all the time.  Let's try to be smart consumers.

Well I don't know what it is you didn't like about AT2 since it was my favorite in the series, but Ar Nosurge is definitely a lot more like AT2 than AT3.  Because it isn't really anything like AT3.  In fact I would say that it has less fan service/sexual innuendo than any of the AT games.

Though one thing that's unique to Ar Nosurge is the whole...meta aspect.  Like it tries to make the player feel like they're interacting with the game universe directly rather than controlling a character in some fictional setting.  That's always kind of tricky to do and I know not everyone is going to go for it.  Personally I felt Ar Nosurge did it...OK.  Could have been worse, could have been better.  It's not really something I want to see a lot of but I guess it's kind of fun once in a while.

Amazon.ca just went up in my esteem from bad to weird.
Tons of things are only available on amazon.COM and .CA can be pretty bare sometimes.

AND THEN http://www.amazon.ca/Monster-Musume-Vol-4-OKAYADO/dp/162692046X/

(and this was in the "People who bought Ar Nosurge also bought this" lol)
...
(man, volume 1-6 for 54.10$ ! What a steal)

Sorry, what was the point you were trying to make? ;)

It's still a Compile Heart game...that kind of puts it on my "do not buy" list until somebody can provide some very compelling evidence that "this one is different".

The reviews that are out so far are mostly from smaller unknown websites and the scores are all over the place.  I don't really know what to make of that, other than realize that there are some people out there who actually like Compile Heart games...

I wouldn't really count Shiny Festa, it's a rhythm game spin-off not a 'real' Idolmaster game.

I do have Idolmaster 2, though I got that a while ago before I began noticing this trend...

I liked Xenosaga...

Even Xenosaga 2, flawed as it was, had its own charm.

I was thinking about importing it.  If I import it that means it will get localized ;)

Some games I've imported in the last few years:
Akiba's Strip 2: Did anyone actual expect this to be localized?  I certainly didn't.
Ar Nosurge: OK, so Gust games are usually localized but after missing Ciel Nosurge I was skeptical that we would get this one.
Senran Kagura Shinobi Versus: Before any Senran Kagura games had even been hinted that they would be localized.  I didn't actually expect that franchise to make it over here.
Project Diva f: I really didn't expect this to ever be localized.  I was shocked when Sega suddenly decided to release it here.
Final Fantasy Type-0: It's a Final Fantasy game so I think we all expected it to come at some point, but Square Enix was sure taking their sweet time...
Grisaia no Kajitsu: This is a friggin visual novel, and not a terribly well-known one at that.  Yet it's getting localized...

See, I'm seriously starting to think that anything I import will be localized...

I just got this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=trueview-instream&v=Oyo2ilSi2g4 as an ad before another video on Youtube.
Yeah... I'm sure that industrial pot cutting robot is all about medical marijuana making...

Really Youtube? Really?

Hey, it's legal in some states, you know.

I know this is off-topic, but why are you guys down on Shining Resonance?
