I got my 32" TV shipped from Newegg.  I don't recall there being any problems.  Of course a lot of that depends on the area where you live.  You might want to be home when it's delivered.

Saw this news posted at a few different sites.  Pretty much all of them had a this-probably-doesn't-actually-change-anything attitude.  But Kotaku acts like the sky is falling...figures.

It's also funny how the article talks about the studio's poor performance in 2010 while completely ignoring 2011.  Xillia is the best-selling Tales game ever...

Admittedly, it's probably the best console JRPG to come out of Japan since Resonance of Fate.

Uh, Nier, Atelier Rorona, and Atelier Totori say hello.

I don't want the game because the cutscenes looked absolutely inane and stupid and recycled.

Dear lord that was awful.  And I've watched a lot of crap in my day...

Yeah...actual physics conferences don't have much in the way of heckling...

Do they, however, have an awful lot of drinking.

I guess I'm the only one who thought the P4 anime was pretty bad.  I quite watching it.  Not worth my time.

I think  pretty good if you actually played persona 4. I could not recommend it to someone who hasn't played the game due to the pacing.

I certainly have played Persona 4.  I love Persona 4.  I didn't think the anime was worth watching.

I want another poster.My Atelier Totori poster was so awesome.

I'm too embarrassed to hang that thing up...

Yeah... I have a few VG swag I could put up.... but I won't... =/

It's not even that.  I have lots of dorky shit on my walls.  Heck, I have an autographed poster of Kevin Butler (which always gets questioned...most people don't know who Kevin Butler is).

No, the thing with the Atelier Totori poster is that while it certainly isn't explicit or anything it's a little bit...suggestive.  Which combined with the fact that Totori is 13 years old is enough to make me uncomfortable...

Coning is retarded.
Stupid people have too much money if they can waste it on wasting food.

They've got you talking about it.  That was all they wanted.

NISA announces a Spring release for Meruru.

This is surprising.  Much faster than their usual localization of these games.

Remember when Ninja Gaiden (the original, on NES) had cutscenes and everybody thought it was friggin amazing because nobody really did that before?
2127  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What classes do you enjoy playing in RPGs? on: November 15, 2011, 03:37:56 PM
I mix it up.  I never like playing the same class twice in a row.  I want to experiment with new things.

In pen and paper RPGs in particular I have developed the habit of making characters with extreme specializations in things that players don't normally specialize in and finding creative ways to use them.  Like my rogue with such a high bluff skill he managed to convince the evil mastermind that the party was only in his lair to bask in his glory...then we surrounded him and pummeled the crap out of him when he wasn't looking.  That sort of thing is hard to do in videogames, though, since you just don't have the same flexibility that you do with a human GM.

@GrimReality:
Makes sense. The target is more people with some actual time of their hands, and a sheer liking of the superNES RPGs. It's definitely an involving game and for those people the value for the dollar is great, because the game does deliver in content and size without using of the notorious aforementioned cheap tricks.

See, I'm with Grim on this one.  I grew up with SNES RPGs and loved them back in the day, but that was when I was a kid with lots of time and little money.  Gaming hours per dollar is an important consideration then.  But now I can easily afford to buy any game that interests me but I don't have any time to play them.  I have games still in the shrinkwrap that I bought intending to play someday but never even got around to it.  This has changed what I look for in a game, too.  It's really easy to make a video game longer.  Through another wave of enemies at the player, increase the encounter rate, whatever.  But now that my time is the limiting factor in my gaming I have very little tolerance for that BS.  I want to be doing something fun and different, not grinding my way through the same old enemies that I already know how to defeat.  I haven't seen any 100 hour game that actualy spent the majority of its time introducing new ideas or telling a story...

This has been a general rant and is not specifically directed at any of your games since I haven't played them.

You play Modern Warfare for the story?
2130  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: November 12, 2011, 11:27:16 PM
I must shamefully admit that I am hooked on The Idolm@ster 2.  I haven't had any previous experience with the series but I decided to pick up the PS3 version when it came out.  It's actually a really fun game.  The best I can describe it is as a combination of a business simulation, visual novel, and rhythm game, if that makes any sense...
