Where did you check?  Neptunia has an average of 45 on Metacritic...

Apologies if you've already since this 'cause it ain't exactly new, but it was new to me...

I recently discovered that there is a moe anthropomorphism of GLaDOS floating around and there are lots and lots of youtube videos featuring her (mostly using MMD with a model that's clearly based off of Miku, but somehow it just works).  It's just a silly, fun idea.  Here are a few of my favorites (yeah there's a bunch but they're reallly short):

But it didn't stop there...the turrets:

How about a full-length music video

OK, I'll stop...

The earlier discussion about anime prices reminds me...the good old days are back!

$75 for 4 episodes!  And that's Rightstuf's price...MSRP is $95.

OK, so there is a lot of extra crap in there.  But most it it really is crap.  The soundtrack is cool and the 'short manga' might be interesting (though how short is it...) but that still doesn't justify the price.

Ah well, I'll wait and get the box set.

I drive my awesome scooter.  Easy to find parking in spots that couldn't possibly fit a car ;)

And on that note, I will proudly express I am also enjoying the ever-loathed Atelier Rorona at the moment

Wait, what?  Since when was Atelier Rorona loathed?  Sure it's not a perfect game (Totori was a big improvement) and the style isn't for everyone, but loathed?!  I thought it was a pretty good game.  RPGFan gave it 85%...that doesn't sound like loathing...

Should I even admit that I've played this already?  Well, just the demo.  I wouldn't pay money for it...really.  But curiosity got the best of me so I tried the demo.

At its core the game is basically a rail shooter and dating sim combo with a really weird theme.  I don't know, I think there are actually weirder (and creepier) games out there.

So... on the 360... does Kinect detect you doing a gun with your fingers to shoot your swag?

No Kinect support on the 360, you just have to use a controller.  The PS3 version does support move, though, which makes sense for a rail shooter.

Right, that's why the first Neptunia sold better in the US than Japan...

How about you play some *good* JRPGs?  Tales of Graces f, Atelier Meruru, Xenoblade, Ni no Kuni, FF Type-0, and Grand Knights History are still slated for this year.

I know it's not serious, but satire is supposed to be funny...

I had considered bringing this up a while back just for laughs. But since the question regarding the blood has been directly asked...

Spoiler alert

I feel dumber after watching that...
2365  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Binary Domain - The spiritual successor to Snatcher? on: February 16, 2012, 01:33:32 AM
I'm just gonna say it:  This game looks like garbage.

Now I could be wrong.  Heck, I hope I'm wrong.  But everything I have seen about this game screams we're-desperately-trying-to-imitate-the-west-but-don't-actually-know-what-we're-doing to me.  Now maybe there is an interesting story under there, but the actual gameplay looks like a mix of been-there-1000-times-before 3rd person cover shooter and some stupid gimmicks (wow, if you don't keep your teammates happy they'll refuse to follow your orders...and they're supposed to be pros).  The game doesn't even look good graphically.

Like I said, I hope I'm wrong.  But jeez I have a baaad feeling about this one...

Snow rides a motorcycle constructed of two lesbians making out

Lesbian sisters!  Incest makes everything better.

-Tales of Xillia (same; Graces looks pretty bad, IMO)

I see a lot of people saying crap like that about Graves for what seem like extremely superficial reasons.  Yeah the art style isn't for everyone but Graces f is supposed to be a very good game.  Give it a chance.  Xillia is also good, though perhaps lacking in content compared to most Tales games.
2368  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What kind of PSP and DS should I get? on: February 14, 2012, 06:42:58 PM
The PSP doesn't multi-task at all, meaning when it's downloading something you can't do anything with it but sit there and watch the progress bar.  For this reason alone I prefer to download stuff on my PS3 and then copy it over.  Not to mention that the PSP did come out like 7 years ago and its wifi has issues connecting to certain types of WPA2 networks...but still, you can access all the content from the PSP itself so long as you're patient.

Still, since you obviously don't have an existing UMD collection I would seriously consider just saving up for a Vita.  You can still play PSP games on it (through the PSN) but then you can access Vita content as well.

Yesterday I went to the dentist (you just know this is going to be an exciting story).  Honestly, I'm really bad about going to the dentist regularly and hadn't been in a few years.  But I'm actually quite good and brushing and flossing so I don't normally have any problems.   But for the last few weeks I've had pain in my lower molars that comes and goes but has been bad enough it sometimes keeps me from sleeping.  Since I hadn't been to the dentist in a few years I figured I should really go...

However the dentist said he couldn't find anything wrong.  No cavities, no gum problems, nothing.  But the pain is still there.  He seemed to think the most likely cause was stress.  I guess when people are stressed they subconsciously clench and grind their teeth, and that can lead to pain like I was describing.

I can't say that I'm not stressed...I'm actually going through a really stressful period.  I'm trying to finish my dissertation, find a job, and basically figure out what the hell I'm doing with my life.  But I never would have expected that the first person to point out I was stressed would be my dentist...

So anyway, dentists know.
