Gumby freaks me the fuck out. Does Gumby freak anyone else the fuck out?

Yes.  I swear that shit gave me nightmares when I was a kid...

Honestly I think Deus Ex: HR was my game of the year, though I get why not everyone digged it as much as I did.  Of course I haven't actually played The Witcher 2...

Trails in the Sky would probably be my runner up.

I did a follow-up post where I graphed the 3DS and Vita launch-period sales.  I like making graphs.

Supporting old hardware is nice and all, but I think in this case it goes beyond that.  In Japan the only good-looking post-launch Vita title is Gravity Daze and that might be too obscure to be a system-seller (though it looks like a great game).  Meanwhile the PSP is being flooded with titles.  I can't really blame the Japanese gamers for sticking with their PSPs.

I'm surprised nobody is talking about the abysmal Vita sales...third week sales are in and they're even worse than the second week.  Only 42,000 units for new hardware is...awful.

Some dork named Kevadu wrote this analysis about why.

From Firaxis, even!

I guess somebody heard all the complaints about the FPS.  I gotta say, I'm excited.  If anyone can do this right it's Firaxis.

My 2011 was so phenomenally uneventful that I have a hard time describing it as good or bad.  It just was.

Wait!? Which one was the one that had the sucky combat?

Seeing as it's the only thing FFXIII did right at all gameplay-wise I'd say LoD.

And yet the combat in Final Fantasy XIII was the thing I disliked the most.:P

Agreed.  It was fundamentally poorly designed.  No depth, the same basic strategy worked for pretty much every battle, and soon battles became nothing but an exercise in tedium simply because of how many HP the enemies had (which is itself a design flaw born out of the desire to make break relevant even for regular enemies).

I don't know why people praise FFXIII's combat.  It's novel, I guess, until you spend more than 10 minutes with it and realize how shallow it is.

SOPA sounds good on paper

Say what?  Have you read SOPA?  There's nothing remotely good about it.  And I'm saying that as somebody who doesn't pirate and despises pirates.

That said, singling out Sony here is somewhat...bizarre.  A lot of companies have expressed support for SOPA.  Sony isn't even the main proponent or anything.

Fixed, because I've had no luck finding any XSeeD games after their release date. At least phone ports are more than likely digitally released.

Trails in the Sky is in stock on Amazon right now.  In fact, Amazon has had lightning deals on Xseed PSP games like half a dozen times in the last year.  They don't do lightning deals on out-of-stock items, they do them on items that aren't selling and they're trying to get rid of their stock of...

Yeah, these games can be hard to find in your local Gamestop (because they barely stock any in the first place), but did you even look online?

Edit: Going back on topic: "On Twitter, XSEED Games has mentioned to curious fans that no, they're not actually involved."

Boo.  That just killed my enthusiasm.

You do realize that the PSP is a completely dead platform (in the West, anyway) at this point, right?  Hell, I love my PSP but I've been playing nothing but Japanese imports on it lately.  But I can't really blame any company that doesn't want to release games on the PSP at this point because nobody buys them.

Um, there's this thing called the Vita coming out in February. You might have heard of it.

You realize that there is no PSN version of the second game (even in Japan) because of technical issues so it's not going to work on a Vita.

Why the heck am I the one defending this move...have you seen the tagline that's been under my name for over a year?  Gaming on phones sucks.  So get one of these.  That's what I did.  With the keyboard dock attached it feels just like a laptop but you can still use it as a tablet if you want.  Actually if I was in the market now I would get one of these...they look super swet.  I'm jealous of anyone who has the new model...

Though they haven't announced platforms yet so I hope they don't ignore Android...

This move is way better than nothing, which is what we were getting before.

Though I hope to god they worked out some deal with Xseed so that they're still doing the localization.

Terrible news all around.

How in the hell is an announcement that some fantastic previously unlocalized games are being released on a non-dead platform in any way 'terrible news'?!  I don't care if I have to play them on a friggin toaster I'm going to buy these games.
2263  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Next "Trails" game announced for PSP on: December 27, 2011, 10:42:42 AM

I have mixed feelings about this.  Getting the trilogy in English in some form is awesome.  But I really, really hope Xseed is still handling the localization because they did a fantastic job with the first title and the writing is essential to enjoying these games.

Of course I'm going to play it on my tablet, not a phone.  Who wants to play games this long on a friggin phone...

I would have loved Deus Ex:  Human Revolution back in January, but 2011 is the year I got absolutely sick of shooters with a cover system and regenerating health.  Things were going good until I got to the tutorial about the cover system, when I immediately began cussing out my television. :P

So go stealth/social.  Wonderful thing about Deus Ex is that you don't actually have to engage the enemy (other than the infamous boss fights...).  Of course you will probably still want to use cover when sneaking but that is a bit different.
2265  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Games You'd Like To Give Another Chance And Why? on: December 24, 2011, 08:43:04 PM
And I don't know why you were repeatedly clicking on enemies since you only need to click when you want to do something different.  If you just want your guys to keep attacking the same enemy they'll do so on their own.

I think I know why. Turn off the AI. It's junk.

That's...a really good point.  It's been long enough since I've played that I honestly forgot about the AI. I always turned it off.
