Did not expect this.

Listing says PSP and PS3.  That's kind of interesting, as far as I know there was never a PS3 version of the game.  Could this be the first US release of a PSP remaster?

Edit: Derp, forgot the obvious.  Might just be a PS1 Classic, meaning none of the enhancements of the PSP version...

By the way, what's the deal with conversation rings in games? ME started them. Amalur had them (along with normal topic lists. WTF?) Human Revolution has them. Are they superior to just picking conversation choices from a list? Conversation trees don't usually branch in more than four ways at a given node anyway so they don't change the gameplay any, but...

I think they're quite silly, personally.  I really don't see the point.  But they're trendy and cool, I guess.  But I've read actual articles by game 'journalists' (using that term loosely) proclaiming that conversation rings were the future and lists were old-fashioned and obsolete without bothering to explain how they're any different...

Some people get weird about this sort of thing.  And for these big games that cost tens of millions of dollars I guess you just have to do what's expected of you.  Don't want some reviewer marking you down for using "old-fashioned" lists...

Bought the game at launch and still haven't touched it, heh.  But I already played the PS2 version and my backlog is something else...I don't have a 100 hours to sink into a game I already played once, no matter how good it is...

Guy claims to be a tester, then talks about what Gearbox spent their money on...as if he knew.  Testers are the lowest position on the totem pole.  Why would he be privy to the company's budgets?

Maybe he really was a tester, but even so it seems like he's mostly just speculating.

more Katanagatari

If there was actually more Katanagatari I would be all over that (loved Katanagatari), but they're just re-running the original.  Honestly I don't know why they even bother to list that kind of thing on the chart.

Besides which, Katanagatari didn't really leave a lot of room for a sequel.

I don't really get the whole four of February thing.  Do people really play through four games in a month?  I mean, any month...even at my best I don't think I've done more than two.  These days a single game can can me several months...

Look, it's another angle!  It has some kind of headset jack...

OK, I'm bored of this.  Bring on the press conference already...

SS2 had multiplayer?!  Seriously?  I had no idea...
2124  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...
