It looks like Project Diva f will likely be the first game I ever platinum.  Wonder what that says about me?  Or maybe it just says it's an easy platinum, because usually there's some bullshit requirement and I just can't be bothered (RPGs are the worst trophy-wise since it just takes so damn long...).  Still, I have put a lot of hours into the game.

Anyway, I only have two trophies left to get:
1.  There's a trophy for uploading an edit data to Sega's servers.  Technically I could get this right now as I did make one, only it's an unplayable piece of junk.  But the trophy is just for uploading something, quality isn't measured.  Still I'd rather wait until I had something less embarrassing.

2.  The other trophy I need is kind of annoying.  The game displays artwork during loading screens and there's a trophy for collecting them all.  But what you get is totally random so there are lots and lots of repeats.  I have like 92% but who knows how long the last 8% will take.  There's no real strategy involved here, just persistence...

I don't think it's that simple.  What these games ultimately illustrate is the importance of trust.  The societally-optimal solution (meaning the one that brings the biggest benefit to the most people) is always to have everyone cooperate, so cooperation seems like a no-brainer, right?  But you have to trust that the other person is also going to cooperate.

You say that you would never choose betray because it could potentially bring harm to another person, but what if your opponent didn't think the same way?  You're locked up with a bunch of people you know nothing about and you're told to either cooperate or betray.  You may want to cooperate, but if you cooperate and they betray you get screwed while your opponent gets the largest possible pay-off.  That wouldn't make you bitter?  Or fearful, for that matter.  What if it happens again?  Betraying might be necessary as the 'safe' choice to save your own neck.

Have you never seen this particular type of game theory before, Zeron?  It's a textbook example.  Well, not necessarily with the killing and stuff, but look up "normal-form game".  It's not a new idea.

Well, they don't say exactly where it fits in the timeline, but it's a continuation of Laharl's story.

I never heard of it either...

Sequel, according to the Famitsu article.

I think I commented on this thread before that the idea of playing an RPG you can't understand is pretty silly.  Most import-friendly games aren't story-centric for a reason.  But if you really want to, I would recommend Valkyria Chronicles 3.  If you're played the second one you should have no difficulty finding your way through the third, and it's an excellent game.

My mum keeps buying packages that she doesn't even open till days later (I think she's officially a fucking hoarder)

I do that...

The entire P3 cast consists of cardboard cutout stereotypes.  I didn't particularly like any of them.  Yukari was relatively inoffensive, at least, but maybe that's just because she didn't have much of a personality at all.

Some final numbers:

$3,986,929 on the Kickstarter page and supposedly $140,099 in Paypal donations.  More than enough to fund the final stretch goal.  Project is go!

Also, this page is pretty neat.
2201  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Project Eternity on: October 16, 2012, 07:27:07 PM
That's just on Kickstarter.  They've gotten about another $150k via Paypal that's not counted in the Kickstarter total, so they've probably already hit $4 million.  Pretty sweet.

Isn't this game supposed to be terrible?

The Project Eternity kickstarter is wrapping up (only 16 hours to go as I'm writing this) and I'm surprised there isn't more talk about it here.  If you're a fan of the Infinity Engine games (Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment), the original Fallout games, or Arcanum then you should be interested in this game.  Many of the same people who madde those games are working on it and they're very much trying to recreate that classic RPG feel that's been lost in a lot of modern games.  Since that list I just mentioned includes a number of my favorate games of all time, naturally I was interested.

The cool thing is that even with 16 hours to go PE has already beaten the Double Fine Adventure's record for most-funded video game on kickstarter, and from what understand in most kickstarter projects there's a big surge on the last day as people who were hesitating decide to put some money down.  It will be interesting to see how high it gets in the next few hours.  Seems like all the stretch goals have been met (when you add in Paypal donations which are over $100k but aren't included in the total on the kickstarter page), so they might be introducing some new ones.

The kickstarter page is here so check it out.

When there's only one laundry machine in the building and somebody decides to do six consecutive loads of laundry (on a friggin Sunday, no less...the biggest laundry day of the week), that justifies murder, right?
2205  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Youtube on: October 14, 2012, 07:20:45 AM
This is just weird...you can't have a slogan in the bathroom?  When your religion prohibits everything you ought to have a thicker skin about violations.  I seriously doubt IW made that texture just for that picture frame in that location.  They probably didn't even notice it.

You saw what happened in Libya a month ago. Right?

You are aware that it's not the religion itself that's the problem, but the extremists within that use whatever means they can find to incite outrage and violence to further their cause. Aren't you?

And you know that it's not just the Muslim faith that suffers from such false and manipulative practitioners but all religions as it is of humankind's base nature to do so. Don't you?

So you understand that what this is isn't an act of censorship but an act of responsibility on the developer's part to avoid providing more fodder to be used to incite more incidents that'll lead to the loss of life.

You seem to be missing the point.  I was mainly objecting to how silly and trivial the complaint was.  Then you argue that since violent extremists exist everyone else has to be extra careful not to say anything that might potentially offend them and somehow that's not censorship.  That doesn't even make sense, man.

I'm not sure why you brought up Libya since the situations are not remotely the same.  If you're talking about the attack on our embassy, well that was a premediated attack by terrorists who just used the protests as cover.  If you're talking about the protests (that weren't just in Libya, they were all over the Muslim world) they were in response to a truly horrible video that was specifically intended to provoke that sort of response.  Basically, the Muslim world got trolled.  Of course that doesn't justify violence, nothing does, but nobody is claiming that this situation is analogous...well, except you I guess.
