I guess I'm supposed to sound more like this.

Seriously, though, this is what I expected.

And browser games are a big deal, not just in Japan.  They're cheap to make and anyone can play them (just need a computer with a web browser, no specialized systems, etc), so the potential for profit is huge.

Well I honestly can't say I'm surprised.  This is about what I expected.

Actually it doesn't look half bad for a browser game.  But I'm a sucker for oldschool 4X stuff.

That's odd, I had the site left open and the countdown was still going (about 6 minutes left) when I read these posts so I refreshed it and now says zero.  What happened to those 6 minutes?

Well damn, my PS3 is officially YLOD'ed now.  I guess that's not too surprising since it was having fan problems and the YLOD is an overheating issue.  I think I'm going to try to fix it but I need to get a heat gun.

Sega never said anything official about Skies of Arcadia HD.  There were tons of rumours and speculation, though.

Since apparently I have been replacing fans in all my electronics lately...

My PS3 has really not been running well.  I mentioned in crashed in the game journal thread while I was playing Tales of Graces f, but that was just the beginning.  Pretty sure the fan is dying.  So...new fan time!

So I took apart a PS3 for the first time.  Of course I don't actually have the replacement fan yet, but hey, taking things apart is fun.  Man, the old PS3s are beautiful on the inside.  Tightly engineered machines.

The driving dog saga continues!

Am I the only one completely amazed by this?

Some people are speculating that it's a new Star Ocean game but I'm not sure I buy it.  Well, it's certainly star-y.
2274  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: December 09, 2012, 02:55:25 AM
Was just playing Tales of Graces f, doing the Warrior's Roost arena thing in the future arc.  I worked my way all the way up from the lowest level in one go (no easy task since I'm playing on moderate and haven't power leveled or anything) and was fighting Poisson at the top (and doing pretty well, though it's a long battle 'cause she has crazy hit points) when the game crashed...

That was the first time the game has ever crashed on me, but I don't think I could have picked a worse time if I tried.  I lost about an hour, but it was an hour of constant difficult battles for which there is no guarantee I'll do as well even if I repeat them.  Way to completely sap my desire to keep playing, game.
2275  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Been out of the RPG loop for almost a year....any good RPGs out there for PS3? on: December 08, 2012, 10:48:45 PM
Being out of the loop for a year doesn't really strike me as all that long.  I don't know what you've played, though.  Are you just looking for stuff that came out in the last year?  Here are some recommendations:

Tales of Graces f is the best Tales game we've gotten in a while, but I feel like it doesn't get any respect.  I wonder what percentage of the people constantly whining about Vesperia PS3 actually played Graces f...because it's the better game.

Atelier Meruru - If you like these games then Meruru is probably the best of the bunch.  Combat is much improved and having the three tiers of explorations, alchemy, and development is super-addictive.  But if you don't like the style of these games it's probably not going to change your mind.

Kingdoms of Amalur - Reckoning will probably be remembered more for the quagmire of 38 Studios than anything else, but that aside it's a good game.  A bit on the easy side, but it has fun combat, and interesting world, and lots of stuff to do.

That...wasn't what I expected.

I don't know about visual quality, but they absolutely will block it for lack of trophies.  That is their policy.

Anyway, this announcement is a no-brainer.  We knew it was coming after the first game was announced.  Honestly I'm surprised they're waiting until April...

Disappointed by the lack of dogs...so here:


Sadly I couldn't find the whole story on Youtube so that link is probably your best bet.
2279  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ninokuni (Ghibli + Level 5 RPG) going PS3 on: December 06, 2012, 03:00:48 AM
Tis the season, I suppose.

But seriously, have you SEEN their track record? Gundam AGE alone should be reason enough never to trust them again or even trust that even the amounts of executive meddling that companies like Sunrise tend to indulge in can reign in their awful writing.

To me they're right in between Squeenix and Crapcom in terms of the quality of treatment it demonstrates between themselves, their franchises, and their fan bases (in Japan; otherwise folks like Zynga, EA, and Actiblizzvision would be mixed in there among others).

I'm not really defending Level-5 (never been a big fan anyway), but I still think your original post was over-the-top.  Not to mention that Ghibli is involved here and they're quite good at what they do.  I don't actually know who did the writing, but what little I've seen is at least competent.  But it's hard to really judge from snippets.

And I didn't watch Gundam AGE because I'm not a masochist so I have no comment there...

Potentially good season coming up.  The show that I am simultaneously most anticipating and most nervous about is Maoyuu Maou Yuusha.  Anticipating because I've read the source material (and the manga adaptions...yes all five of them) and I love it.  It's a very interesting story that touches on politics, religion, prejudice and yes, a whole lot of macroeconomics.  But I'm nervous because I don't have a lot of confidence in the studio doing the anime adaption and I haven't been very impressed by the promo material.  The character designs look off and they seem to be really pushing the fanservice...note that the source material has basically zero fanservice.  I guess they didn't think they could sell the anime without it.  I'm very worried that they're going to fuck this up.

Speaking of fanservice, the Senran Kagura anime is a thing that exists...not sure what to make of that...might watch a bit just out of morbid curiosity.

More Minami-ke and Chihayafuru is always good.
