SS2 had multiplayer?!  Seriously?  I had no idea...
1982  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Skies of Arcadia Legends vs. Rogue Galaxy on: February 15, 2013, 03:08:07 AM
Yeah, there have been a lot of rumours but nothing substantial.  I would buy an HD Skies of Arcadia in a heartbeat...

But screw Rogue Galaxy.  I thought that game was terrible.  Terrible gameplay, terrible story, terrible characters.  I find its popularity a little baffling.

I can't hear people talk about Animal Crossing without thinking about this.  Puts a whole new spin on things...

I was worried Kotoura would loose steam since episode 4.  Episode 4 pretty much resolved all the drama in the show (faaaaaar too conveniently, I might add) and all that was left for 5 and 6 was the comedy.  Honestly I don't think the comedy in Kotoura is that great.  It's OK, sure, but nothing special.  There was a hint at the end of ep. 6 of more drama to come, though.


Switching gears, Spring looks fucking epic.  Shingeki no Kyojin is a must-see, I've read some of Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko and it's quite good, same with Hataraku Maou-sama.  There's more Nyaruko (fuck yeah!), more Railgun, and yes more OreImo too (don't judge me, it's funny shit).  Red Data Girl looks like it might be interesting but I don't actually know that much about it.  I'm also keeping an eye on Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru, another one I don't know too much about but I've heard good things.

Oh yeah, and there's the Hanasaku Iroha movie.  I'm going to have to get a copy of that somehow...

I don't know why so many people doubt the historical validity of giant enemy crabs.  Just because they're extinct now doesn't mean they weren't around in ancient Japan!

So Valve officially launched Steam for Linux today.  In case I haven't mentioned it before I'm one of those dirty Linux users, so naturally I went and downloaded it...

"package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)"

Is this some sort of sick joke, Valve?  You just launched a new gaming service that only supports 10 year old CPUs?!  You have got to be kidding me...this is 2013.  What kind of person even remotely interested in gaming doesn't have a 64 bit system by now?  I would think if you were only going to support one architecture it would be 64 bit...

That is really ugly.

It is a prototype.  Aesthetics aren't the top priority.

And I like the convex tops. :(

No...just no...

My biggest beef with the Dualshock design is the convex tops to the analog sticks which result in much finger-slipping.  It looks like they're finally addressing that with the design, so I'm happy.

I know a lot of people are whining about the touchpad, but I could see that being pretty useful for non-gaming (and even some gaming tasks).  It's just like the trackpad on a laptop.  You could use it to control the pointer in the web browser (which I'm sure the PS4 will have) a lot better than with an analog stick.  Or, dare I say it, actually have a RTS game that doesn't suck on a console.

Though this is Sony so I'm sure they'll do something stupid and gimmicky with it...

Controller leaked.  Though it's just a prototype, so it might different from the final version.

Still, Sony can't keep anything secret.

This is fascinating.

It sounds like Gearbox really didn't care about this game and was devoting all of their resources to Borderlands 2 instead.

SS2 freaked me out more than any game before or since.  It's not just things-popping-out-of-the-dark type horror, it's seriously unnerving...
1992  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: February 13, 2013, 06:19:42 PM
Been catching up on Psycho-Pass.  I let myself get kind of behind before because honestly the early episodes were a bit dull.  It's a strange sort of show, set in this obviously distopian future and yet the early episodes played out pretty much like any contemporary police procedural.  They weren't really using the setting, you know.  But I guess the early episodes did a good job of setting the stage, just think it could have been done in fewer eps.

But in the more recent episodes it all started coming together and things have gotten a lot more interesting.  I had faith that Gen Urobuchi would pull it together.  I'm quite enjoying the show now.

I think I dropped No. 6 halfway through.  I say 'think' because the story was so goofy and convoluted I can't remember if I actually saw it through to the end or not...that probably isn't a good sign...

I could have lived without the massive amount of yaoi-baiting in that show too.
1994  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So Final Fantasy XII.... on: February 13, 2013, 02:08:08 AM
1. FFVI had a number of save-corrupting bugs, and they're easy to trigger inadvertently. That's bad, and there's no way you can argue that away. That's not an opinion -- from a development standpoint the game has critical defects that should not be in a final product.

I've played through FFVI at least 10 times front start to finish.  I've probably spent more time in that game than any other video game before or since.  I found almost all the little secrets and things on my own, without ever using a guide.  And I never encountered a save-corrupting bug.  Not once.  I think you exaggerate their prevalance. (Though to be honest I rarely used Relm, because Relm sucks).

That is all.
