This fall on PSN.  $19.99, 1080p, trophies, Move support.

I'm psyched.  The PS2 version is one of my all-time favorite games.  I never played the Wii version, though, and I've heard it's not a very good port.  Hopefully they do a better job this time.

There are lots of different figures, you know.

Edit: here's a different one.  I think I like this one better:

Of course these aren't new figures and they're all sold out, so it doesn't really matter.  Japan is really good at the whole artificial scarcity thing...seems like everything in the figure world is a limited edition.

I never got familiar with the Fate stuff.... I was always under the impression it was more "Pokemon" and less "Fantasy" (not that there is a problem with that) and just sort of turned a blind eye to it..... been meaning to check it out though......

I was going to respond to this earlier but I was just flabbergasted.  The Fate series is nothing like Pokemon...

Speaking of Fate stuff I just got my Unlimited Blade Works blu-ray.  Good film.  I like that route better than the one in the TV series.

VC3 was a definite step forwards, we just never got it...

Anyway, as I said in the andriasang article it doesn't look like you actually control the 3D battles at all.  You're just watching them.  So I have zero interest in this game.

I played the demo of Robotics;Notes (that's the successor to Steins;Gate in case you don't know) for like 7 hours.  I was not planning or expecting it to take that long.  It's almost 4am as I'm writing this.  Jesus Christ if you're going to make a 7 hour demo in include a freakin save function...

There are full games shorter than this demo.

Dude, when we were all convincing you to give Totori a shot didn't we also say you didn't need to finish Rorona?

Sure, massive spoilers for those unfamiliar with Fate/Stay Night:

By the end of Fate/Zero pretty much everyone dies.  Emiya Kiritsugu and Saber win the holy grail war but somehow his wish doesn't work and it causes a huge tragedy that destroys much of the surrounding town (the only survivor being a young Shirou, F/SN's main character, who gets adopted by Kiritsugu).  Kiritsugu is also cursed after that and his body slowly weakens until he dies so he spends what time he has left raising Shirou.  Kotomine Kirei and Gilgamesh survive, the latter being somehow turned from a heroic spirit into flesh and blood by the grail.  They go on to be major antagonists in F/SN.  The daughter of Kiritsugu and Irisviel becomes the vessel for the next grail.  Though I'm not really sure why Kiritsugu decides to spend his remaining years raising Shirou but not with his own daughter...

Argh, I guess I should be specific: I want to make sure the ending is conclusive enough so I don't feel like I have to watch Fate/Stay Night to get the whole story. Because I'm not watching that show. Ever. Not unless they can rewrite the entire thing without my two least favorite characters ever. Besides, a non-conclusive ending is always bad, IMO, regardless of whether or not there is a sequel.

OK, we're getting off-topic here but how the heck can you know something has your "two least favorite characters ever" if you haven't even seen it...

In any event, Fate/Zero is a prequel about a mostly different cast describing the lead up to a certain event that's kind of the basis for Fate/Stay Night.  They're largely independent and there's just isn't enough wiggle room in terms of what has to happen to think that Fate/Zero's ending is going to be inconclusive.  While it's true that a lot of anime has inconclusive endings there's a reason for that, namely that they're based on manga or light novels that are still ongoing so the ending isn't actually the end.  That just doesn't apply here.

I have to say that while much of it remains pretty generic, game easily has my favorite soundtrack of the Arland trilogy.  I mean you've got stuff like this and this.  Although the real stand-outs seem to be limited to special scenes, sadly.  Like the fantastic opening, this wonderful little piece, and this.

For once the soundtrack CD that came with my limited edition is actually getting some seriously playtime.

Er...you're going to watch the ending first?

No...I just meant that I'm gonna wait and hear what people say about the ending before I dive into it. Obviously I'm not gonna watch the ending first. That would just be silly.

Well, I don't get that.  Especially in this case.  It's a prequel so we already have a pretty good idea how it's going to end.

this console generation sucks and is in fact inferior to the previous gen.

You and every other cynical gamer.

Well, I do feel it's worse outside of AAA western games, more often than not I'm liking them more this generation than I did last.

Seriously?  It's the "AAA western games" that I'm completely sick of.  Sure they're pretty and polished, but for the most part they all play exactly the same and rely on the same damn tropes.  There's no variety, no artistry.  It's the hollywoodification of gaming.

In fact, thinking back to the 90s there really wasn't such a thing as a "AAA" game.  There were just games.  Some were good, some were bad, but generally speaking they all had their own identities.  The technology didn't exist to distract people with fancy explosions so you actually had to use your imagination sometimes.

Sometimes I feel like gaming peaked around 2000 and it's all been downhill since.

Have you tried Fate/Zero, Klyde?  It's seriously good.  Second season has been even better than the first.
2114  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: trading in used games on: June 15, 2012, 04:44:50 PM
I've never traded anything in and I doubt I ever will.  And unlike Mesh I don't feel the tiniest bit guilty about it.  Actually I don't even understand why anyone would feel guilty about that.  Denying others the opportunity to play it?  Unless it's something rare and out of print (in which case I really don't want to trade it in anyway because I'll want it myself...) then why don't people just buy new games?
2115  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: June 14, 2012, 09:30:46 PM
Now this is dedication

That's awesome.  There's actually a subreddit now with the save game file so other people can try to break the stalemate.  If I still had a copy of Civ2 somewhere I would give it a go...
