New details.  Looks quite nice.

Yeah, a couple minutes of gameplay footage is just like having played it...

OK, seriously, I've seen that myself already.  That's what I'm basing my "looks good" assessment on.  I still think it's ridiculous to conclude that a game "is awesome" based on so little...

shining blade is amazing.

I agree that it looks good, but it's not even out in Japan yet.  How can you say that with such confidence?

I'd buy a Maison Ikkoku SRPG and so would you.

What?  I don't even...

Wait. They're localizing a Shining game? What!?

It's an Andriasang (i.e., translations from Japanese press) story, so it isn't going to have a thing to do with localization.

A lot of negativity in this thread, but I think Shining Blade looks pretty nice.

Crazy number of new videos:

The question is, will this game be in the bargain bin in a few months or will it be impossible to find in a few months...I could honestly see it going either way.

Thing is, even if I buy it now I'm not going to play it for a while (I gave myself a moratorium on gaming until I finish my dissertation...).

Anyone else reminded of that terrible Mel Gibson movie, The Patriot?


The internet says you're wrong.

I'm quite looking forward to the notion of dropping a few tomahawks on a few Redcoat skulls. It'll be just like the movie The Patriot! Except with time travel. And without Mel Gibson. And maybe not horrible.

The tomahawk and the vicious melee attack on the British soldier have a distinctly Mel Gibson’s “The Patriot” feel to them, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the bulk of the game took place in the hit-and-run guerilla tactics that colonial militias were beginning to develop during that time.

Can you say The Patriot?!?!?

Or even the Mel Gibson vehicle The Patriot, in which Gibson and Heath Ledger form a rebel militia group to drive the British our of America in 1776.

Assassin's Creed 3 = Mel Gibson's The Patriot

Seriously, it's not even a small resemblance...just took the first few google hits.

Mini-rant time.  I drive a scooter it's a gorgeous red Genuine Stella, looks sort of like this:

I was out on it tonight, and no fewer than 3 times a car (well, three different cars) did something absolutely batshit crazy and stupid in order to pass me.  I mean shit like passing me on the right at a stop light when there was no right lane.  And all three times the car then proceeded to drive slower than I was going before.  For real.  So you can't even argue that they were in a hurry...

Since these incidents generally happen at stoplights and things, not while I'm actually moving, I generally attribute this kind of crap (this isn't the first time it's happened, though I've never had it happen so many times in one night...) to these drivers not knowing the difference between a real scooter an a 50cc moped or something.  They think they're going to be stuck behind me and then turn into aggressive idiot mode.  Lesson of the day for all of you car drivers: I can go just as fast as you.  OK, sure, I generally avoid highways (none of these incidents happened on a highway though...), but I can (and routinely do) hit 55mph on regular roads without a problem.  Basically anything short of a highway is just fine.  In fact, since a scooter is so light and my two-stroke engine has a lot of torque I can often accelerate from a stop faster than you.  So no, you really don't need to turn into an aggressive idiot just to get in front of me...especially if you're going to proceed to drive slower than I was going.

I mean jeez, if I get hit because some car driver is acting like a complete idiot I'm the one who is going to die...

I really should pre-order this.  Gamestop is the only place offering some sort of pre-order bonus, though...and I hate Gamestop.

I genuinely hope this isn't a DD only release. It would be nice if this were the swan song for the PSP, much like P4 was for PS2, and we get one last limited edition with soundtrack set out of it.

Uh, it certainly won't be digital-only in Japan.  Nor will it be the PSP's swan song.  The PSP is still doing really, really well there and there are tons of games coming out for it (way more than the Vita, actually...).

If you're talking about the US, well they haven't announced that they're bringing this over at all yet.  How well did Innocent Sin sell here?  I don't think it did great...

What's really interesting is that she doesn't appear to have a persona.  Note that other characters appear along with their personas in the corner portraits, but Labrys appears alone.  And then there's that X'ed out burst thing...

I don't quite get your attitude here.  You make it sound like this sort of thing should just be expected for anything that comes out of Japan, which is both stupid and untrue.  No doubt this isn't the first game to feature this kind of thing, but there are numerous (and far more successful, I might add) titles out that don't.  I don't even buy your 'tends to happen' statement...it does happen, but it's not like it's even in the majority.  You're talking about a subculture as if it were the norm.

Considering how many times I've picked something up at random, from across practically every genre and medium, over the past 8 years and pretty much found content of that nature contained within it; I'm rather inclined to believe it is quite common until the industries start putting out products that prove me wrong.

I don't believe you're picking stuff up at random at all.  In this very thread you've been completely dismissive when people have suggested other games that might be more worth your money.  And that's not an isolated incident.  Now of course everyone has their biases and interests, but in your case they seem to heavily overlap with the subculture of Japan that embraces this sort of stuff.  That doesn't make it the norm.  There are already tons of products that 'prove you wrong'.  You're just suffering from selection bias.

Officially confirmed for the US!

Both 3DS and Vita versions.  Dual language support.  Coming this fall.  What more could you ask for?
