What is it with women and hair?

I would have my daughter shave her head bald if she did that to a kid. But in this day and age, mom thinks she knows best....which is why the girl did this in the first place, cuz mom is doing such a great job, right?

I don't understand what your comment has to do with the article...

Interesting opinion piece on the controversy over the game's inclusion of a sexual assault scene and the disingenuous response of the developer.

Wow, what a crock of shit that article is.  Sorry, but the developer's response was not disingenuous at all.  That artcle's selective quoting is.

What the developer actually said:
Quote
“Sexual assault of any kind is categorically not a theme that we cover in this game.”

How the author of the article goes on to misquote it:
Quote
To start - don’t show a trailer where a dude pushes a terrified girl against a wall and tries to grab her ass while slobbering all over her neck… then tell us “sexual assault of any kind” isn’t in the game.


The author needs to look up the word 'theme' in the dictionary...

Nah Klyde, this and Mugen Souls are too obscure for anyone to make a big deal out of.

Dont you have to basically be overpowerd to beat that one boss in Ar Tonelico 2 in 2 turns, or else the game freezes?

Not really, no.  I just played normally and didn't have any trouble.  I wasn't even sure which boss it was...

You know, everybody says don't level up in FFVIII but I was completely unaware of that advice when I played it (because I never consult guides and stuff my first time through a game) so I leveled up out the wazoo and I never had trouble with it.  Actually I thought FFVIII was a really easy game (and yes, I beat it).

Why aren't you shaving your head?

This is maddening... I feel like I just bought the 3DS.. now I got trade it and shell out more cash for this.... crud....

Er...no you don't.  This doesn't offer any functionality over a regular 3DS...

Uh, VC3 was great.  Probably better than VC1.

Not that I expect much from this game.

And how the heck am I supposed to fit that in my pocket?

You're not.

The region lock is honestly the single biggest thing stopping me from getting a 3DS.  About half the games I'm interested in for 3DS don't look like they'll ever be localized, but for the RPGs and stuff that do get localized I would rather play in English.  And I don't want to have to buy two systems (people think the Vita is expensive...), so I just say 'fuck it' and don't buy any.  It's not like there's a shortage of games for me to play at the moment...I should work on my backlog.

Make it region-free Nintendo...

...yeah, I know that's never going to happen.

Hey, I've been defending Dragon Age 2 from the start, though sometimes it feels like I'm the only one.  There are definitely some aspects of it that are rushed (like the constant reuse of the same couple of dungeons maps, that's just inexcusable), but for the most part I really like what it was trying to do.  It's a very political story, which is a good point in my book.  I actually like political stories.  And I like how they focused on showing how a given area and characters changed over time, which is a nice change of pace from most RPGs.

Unfortunately it did start to piss me off a bit in the endgame because
Code:
Basically you're forced to make a choice between the two factions, but by they [i]both[/i] pull stupid bullshit at the end that made me not want to support either...where was the "let them kill each other, I'm outta here" option.

While Clover made a lot of games that were well-received critically, it's a fact that they didn't sell.  They were not profitable.  I know it's popular to hate on Capcom, but I think anyone would have shut them down.  This isn't a charity.

Suikoden 2 is on the PSN?  Since when...

More might have come since then. In fact there may be a reason why 'Gai Rei Zero' didn't just call itself 'Gai Rei'. Perhaps that added 'Zero' was meant to indicate something.

Not exactly since then, more like before then.  Ga-Rei Zero is a prequel to the Ga-Rei manga, though the latter is just a manga, hasn't been animated.

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.

Really? Might wanna go watch that soon then. I enjoyed the anime series a lot.

Never bothered with Fate/Zero though, maybe after the movie that changes.

Definitely check out Unlimited Blade Works.  It's not exactly a rehash, remember that FSN was originally a visual novel so there are different routes through it.  The TV series covered one of them and UBW covers a different one.

And yeah, I've already said it in this thread but definitely check out Fate/Zero.  Between Fate/Zero, FSN TV, and UBW, Fate/Zero is my favorite, followed by UBW, and FSN TV is last.
