Final Fantasy VI was definitely the first game that reached this point for me (hence the avatar...).  I've lost track of how many times I've played it through start to finish.  I'm pretty sure I've managed to discover just about every secret in that game without ever using a guide...

Planescape: Torment might also qualify.

But I don't have the time to play games like that anymore.  These days I'm lucky if I even finish a game once.

Just got an email from NISA saying that this game has been delayed a week because of manufacturing issues.  It was supposed to be the 22nd but now it's the 29th.

I've never been able to find Riviera, which is a drag as I'd actually like to play it regardless.

It's on the PSN, you know.  Pretty cheap too, if I recall.

Oops, that was already pointed out.  Never mind.

It seems like every month there's a new Atelier game announced. For the uninitiated (me) it feels like there's hundreds of those games.

Well, they do make about one a year.  And then around here people talk about them twice, once when the Japanese release is announced and again when they get localized...

WTF is a dividend tax? What are income tax rates at now anyway? Mine seem pretty low this year although it's not something I pay attention to.

Capital gains tax, which for some insane reason got capped at 15% in 2008 (it used to be treated the same as any other income).  This is the reason why people like Mitt Romney pay a lower tax rate than a lot of middle class folks, since all their income is in capital gains.

Bonus stuff aside, is anyone else gonna be taking this one over Dragons Dogma at the end of the month other than me?

Not at all, this is probably my most-anticipated release right now.

Screw Versus, just bring Type-0 out in English...
2004  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime Comedies? on: May 04, 2012, 01:19:15 PM
Honestly, I very nearly recommended B Gata H Kei myself.  It's a funny show, but more than that it pretty much flies in the face of what you would expect from that description.  I know that these days if you think anime+anything sexual people automatically assume the worst, but B Gata H Kei is actually quite subdued.  It deals with sexual themes, yes, but not explicitly.  There's hardly any fanservice at all.

But perhaps most refreshing is the fact that Yamada, the main character, is actually a fleshed-out person with human motivations and insecurities. 
(It might help that the author of the manga is actually a woman)  Don't get me wrong, she's still a total weirdo--which is kind of what makes the show funny--but she definitely isn't some cardboard cutout character archetype.

Anyway, just don't judge it by a one-line description.  It's actually a pretty good show.
2005  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime Comedies? on: May 04, 2012, 12:24:52 AM
I second the recommendations of School Rumble and Azumanga Daioh.  Especially School Rumble, honestly.  That's actually one of my favorite shows and I feel it's pretty underrated.  (And it's not a romantic comedy.  Romance is more like a subject matter or setting, it's not a show that takes relationships seriously.)

If you can actually find it, Here is Greenwood is an oldie but goodie.  It's just a 6 episode OVA but it's hilarious.

Edit: Also, check out Sket Dance.  It's a currently airing show but Crunchyroll has it.

Wow, PAX registration went live today...and three-day badges sold out within hours.  I apparently missed the window to buy them (it's not like they even said ahead of time when they were going on sale...) so I ended up having to buy three one-day passes.  Yeah, you can still do that...it just costs more.
2007  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: May 02, 2012, 05:37:39 PM
But for whatever reason, I couldn't even get the time of day for either Tales title, which is bizarre, considering our audience is pretty much directly the audience they're trying to get to buy their game. 

Sometimes I'm convinced that they don't want anyone to buy their games...
2008  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Next Vanillaware Title to be Grand Knight History on: May 02, 2012, 02:21:37 AM
What does Vanillaware have to do with their localisation?

Xseed doesn't employ programmers.  At all.  They just produce the script and then hand it over to the developer.  And of course they handle the publishing part as well.  This isn't an unusual practice in this industry.  It does require a developer that at least cares a little, though...it seems that right now Vanillaware is frantically trying to finish Dragon's Crown and can't spare a single programmer to do something with Xseed's script.

The really sad this is that if you read some of Tom's comments on the Xseed forums it sounds like the translation was already finished.

Best way to relieve anger is to rub one out.
This doesn't work....you can't rub when pissed, you aggresively yank and pull, which can lead to pain and discomfort.

Never in my life have I been that angry...
2010  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Next Vanillaware Title to be Grand Knight History on: May 01, 2012, 11:45:33 PM
You've got to be kidding me...

Before people go blaming Xseed or the PSP market, it sounds like the people really holding this up were Vanillaware.  Xseed has basically been sitting around waitng for them to do their part for months...
