1966  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: May 28, 2012, 09:27:57 PM
I decided to take up powerbocking for some reason.

WTF is powerbocking, you ask?  It's what the folks in this video are doing.  Though I imagine in my case there's going to be a lot more falling down and injuring myself.

Not even two weeks since I made that declaration and I've already injured myself.  Woohoo!

Whee, more entitled BS mixed with half-truths and a couple outright lies for good measure.  I can't understand people's obsession with whining about game companies making games that are successful.  It's a business.  Blame the consumers who buy them if you think they're so terrible, or just don't buy them and find games you do like.

The only things in that video that are even remotely true are things that everyone in the industry does.  Get over it.

This is neat!  Certainly there's much better source material in the Ivalice world than all this XIII nonsense...
1969  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur on: May 25, 2012, 07:23:00 PM
Holy crap is right.  Until now we've just seen bad business decisions, but that's outright fraud.
1970  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur on: May 25, 2012, 03:02:24 PM
I don't buy the needed-3-million-to-break-even number for a second.  That's just politics.  The statement was made by the governer of Rhode Island, who was not governer when the deal was made and always opposed it.  It's a completely unrealistic figure if you think about it.  Given the typical return on games (after factoring out all the middlemen), 3 million still should have been about enough to cover the entire $75 million loan the company was given.  Which might be what the governer was talking about, but most of that money wasn't spent on KoA.
1971  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Sting and Idea Factory performs the Fu-Sion-Ha dance and becomes Super Sting on: May 25, 2012, 03:48:25 AM
A whole twelve minutes of gameplay here.  It's going through a complete stage.

Honestly I wasn't too excited about this game at first, but I really enjoyed that clip.  Feels very Sting.
1972  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: May 24, 2012, 08:25:31 PM
I don't like the animation or the music...but I don't buy games for their openings.
1973  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur on: May 24, 2012, 05:00:35 PM
This is really sad.  I enjoyed KoA and thought that the Amalur world had potential (though to be honest KoA didn't use it well...it was mostly fun for the combat).  But the amount of money they apparently have been pouring into this unreleased MMORPG is nuts...and now Big Huge Games is going down with the ship.
1974  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Shadow of the Colossus... movie?! on: May 24, 2012, 01:02:30 AM
Well, it would at the very least be better that Battleship.


This should not be the standard for anything.
1975  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 10 things Japanese people hate about JRPGs on: May 23, 2012, 04:27:56 PM
It's seriously the latter.  Consider your mind blown.
1976  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Youtube on: May 23, 2012, 01:39:13 AM

The top comment on that video is right:  Kill it with fire!

1977  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 10 things Japanese people hate about JRPGs on: May 23, 2012, 01:31:33 AM
Ugh, I remember thinking this article was asinine when I saw it on Crunchyroll...why are we talking about it here?

Which is not to say that there aren't problems with JRPGs but it's not a good list.
1978  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: New X-COM game that's (*gasp*) a strategy game! on: May 22, 2012, 11:05:50 AM
It's got a release date!  October 9th.  I'm kind of surprised by how fast it's been since this game was announced.
1979  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Games that are like RPGs but are not on: May 21, 2012, 05:27:42 PM
The Yakuza games are 100% RPGs as far as I'm concerned.  I know Sega doesn't market them as such, but they are.  I mean come on, you have leveling up, new skills and abilities, weapons, armor, items, exploration, side quests, random encounters...come on.  What more do you want?
1980  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust announces new Atelier game: Atelier Meruru on: May 21, 2012, 12:43:01 PM
There already is an Ayesha topic.  Shame on you, Dice ;)
