1936  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Wii U to be ~350$ and controllers ~175$ (to be confirmed soon) on: September 13, 2012, 05:41:57 PM
Seeing as the controllers are almost a handheld on their own, I'm not really that surprised they cost so much.

Except without all those pesky CPUs, GPUs, memory, etc.  They've got a screen, sure, but they're still totally dependent on the console to do anything.  This does seem like a lot.  I would have guessed more like $100.

On the other hand, almost all console accessories are overpriced.  That's just how things are in this industry.

How is UHF a guilty pleasure?  UHF is just good!  I feel no guilt!

What do people look for in a new Apple product?  Nothing, apparently.

I watched episode 21 of Hyouka today and there's a scene where they go to an arcade and play Virtual On.  It made me so friggin happy, 'cause Virtual On is probably my favorite arcade game ever but it never seems to get any love (it's practically unheard of here, but I don't think it was especially successful in Japan either...).

Is PSP region free?

Yes.  I have a ton of import PSP games.

Some dork named Kevadu started a blog trying to emulate Andriasang's style but I don't know if he's going to keep at it.  Seems like a bit of a flake.
1942  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: September 12, 2012, 05:40:35 PM
Did you shop for it at a store or something?  I don't know about stores...can't remember the last time I bought a movie at a store...

But 5 seconds of googling found this.

I never saw Madoka as a parody of magical girls or something.  Instead it's a deconstruction of the genre.  It takes all the common tropes (and if ever there was a genre of anything that's full of tropes it's magical girl anime...) and turns them on their heads, constantly defying the viewer's expectations.  When viewed in that light it's an absolutely brilliant work, full of commentary and criticism of the genre without ever resorting to gags while simultaneously pushing it forward.  It's the kind of show you can only expect to see once in a decade at most.
1944  The Rest / General Discussions / Andriasang is closing :( on: September 11, 2012, 02:24:30 AM
The horrible news.

I know there are a number of frequent visitors to that site here (I've seen some of you in the comments).  It was my favorite English source of Japanese gaming news.  Yeah Siliconera has some, but not as comprehensively.  Visiting Andriasang has been part of my daily routine for years...definitely going to miss Anoop's witty commentary.

Can I just buy a smartphone with wifi capabilities without doing any pointless data plan and just get a SIM card??!?! Help me, please.

Yes you can.  No phone company will tell you how, though.  You'll probably have to buy the phone online since very few stores will stock unlocked models.  Then get a simple prepaid plan or something.  That's what I do.  The phone will cost more upfront since there's no subsidy but you'll save a ton of money in the long run.

Contracts are a complete scam, but it's a scam that's become so entrenched here people think it's normal...

Did you do any of the non video game related stuff like D&D Next or anything?

Didn't do any D&D Next but I did playtest a couple indie RPGs (including a not-yet-published one based on Atomic Robo which was pretty cool).  Also went to the pre-PAX boardgame night which was a ton of fun.
1947  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Youtube on: September 08, 2012, 03:08:56 PM
I prefer the Gundam Style version somebody posted here a while back.  Unfortunately it got taken down from Youtube because of a copyright claim.  Fortunately, Vimeo doesn't seem to care about copyrights...either that or nobody cares about Vimeo.

Come on, it really sounds like he's saying Gundam.  Once you've made that connection you can't go back...
1948  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What if classic RPGs were remade with 'modern standards'? on: September 08, 2012, 01:39:12 PM
Guys, why on earth would a remake have a completely new title?

Now some sort of shitty phone/social game I could imagine...
1949  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Next 10 years of Mega Man being discussed by "Top Men" at Capcom on: September 07, 2012, 02:52:44 AM
Actually it's Big O, which is basically Japanese Batman (he's a billionaire who has a butler and a ward, the only difference is that instead of fighting crime with peak human abilities, he fights aliens with a giant robot).

Was it aliens? I thought it was giant robot piloted by human versus giant robot piloted by human most of the time.

Yeah, it's been a while since I've seen Big O but I don't remember any aliens...

Okay, meanwhile, I'll just be hoping there'll ever be a way I can legally play the game, regardless of format.

You can legally play it in Japanese right now! ;)
