What kind of icing are we talking about here?  If it's that canned shit then good riddance.

I used to be big into hardcore combat flight sims on the PC (which is pretty much a dead genre now...).  The manuals with some of the old Jane's flight sims were godly...they weren't manuals, they were textbooks.

I just finished watching Hanasaku Iroha. I'm speechless right now; while certainly not without flaws, the entire work is just so charming, and the characters feel so real (because of those flaws), that I couldn't help but totally fall in love with it--and them. It's been a while since I've had such a hard time walking away from characters when there is some actual closure, and I can't wait for the "new visual work" next year.

Extremely impressed. If you like slice of life/coming of age stories at all, I highly suggest it. The animation is also very crisp and vibrant, and nearly the entire cast feels fully realized.

I completely agree.  One of the best shows of the year.

I kinda wish Vita (and 3DS) was digital only.  It'd force the issue.  Why do the Japanese rebel against this technology?  It's the ultimate gaming convenience.  You could theoretically download a game at the stroke of midnight, never have to worry that they will be out of stock, and it's only a few button clicks away.  Why would anyone prefer to waste gas driving to a store (or pay bus/train fare), fight a potential crowd, risk inventory being out of stock for a physical copy? 

You know that Sony is requiring that every single Vita game is available digitally, right?  So if you want it to be digital-only, it can be.  What is there to complain about?

Cleary I go to too many conventions because I looked at that line and thought: Not that bad.

Interesting that the 3G version is doing better than the wifi version.  When I talk to folks around here about it nobody seems interested in paying the extra for 3G.

Is this overall, or in Japan? Because I imagine not knowing how exactly it'll work in America PLUS the fact it's AT&T really doesn't help.

I'm just commenting on opinions I've heard in the US.  I mean, it seems like literally nobody is excited about the 3G version.
2646  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Anime to game adaptations we may never see... on: October 15, 2011, 04:06:06 PM
Most anime to game adaptions are of the visual novel variety, so I wouldn't really expect to see those localized in the first place.  There are a ton of them, though.  But yeah, even the ones that aren't usually look like cheap cash-ins so most of the time I don't really feel like we're missing much.

There's a dungeon crawler RPG based on Madoka in the works for the PSP.  That was a really good show (mostly in how it messed with your expectations) and the dungeon crawling formula actually makes a lot of sense in the context of it, but I still have a hard time mustering any excitement for the game.  It looks so generic and uninspired.

The fact that I like games and anime doesn't mean that I'm going to buy bad games just because they're based off of an anime...

Maybe I should get myself a second or third copy of TitS...

Just saw the weirdest little tirade on a forum. Some guy had a huge post basically saying that the Portal series sucked because you could solve the puzzles, TWEWY would have been a good game if it wasn't trying so hard to be Final Fantasy, Demon's Souls was too easy, Dark Souls was too hard, Nier sucked for having a sad ending, and Mass Effect should have ended at the first game because ME2 wasn't "RPG" enough.

So... I'm never going back to that forum.

I know nothing about the forum in question, but if you're going to let one doofus drive you away then you're not really safe anywhere on the internet.  Gotta learn to be thick skinned out here!

Hey, it's the weekend now.  I know there was talk about trying to get a group to play the multiplayer thingy together, so do you guys actually want to try and do that?  I should be pretty free tomorrow (Sat.).

Wait, people read reviews?  I thought you were just supposed to look at the score and then complain (whether it be too high or too low, rest assured it is wrong).
2652  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Batman Arkham City on: October 14, 2011, 04:47:27 PM
To clarify, the thing I'm the most upset about is all the retailer-specific preorder bonuses.  It has really gotten out of hand and I don't want to support that kind of thing.  This extra crap is just the straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak.

Plus I have other games to keep me busy anyway.
2653  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Type 0 on: October 14, 2011, 04:40:31 PM
The only issue is that it's a PSP game, but that's enough of an issue to at least be worried.  There were some concerns that it wouldn't come in downloadable form since it's on two UMDs, but apparently S-E found a way around that.

A Vita version would be great, though.  You don't need to change the graphics at all S-E, just let me use that second analog stick!

I remember reading somewhere that S-E had some sort of presentation about this game specifically aimed at western press during TGS.  It would be kind of weird to do that if they didn't have some sort of plan...
2654  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: October 14, 2011, 11:38:56 AM
Xillia will be released here.  I have no basis for this statement other than the fact that Xillia is both the highest rated and fastest selling Tales game ever.  It's not some obscure entry in the franchise.  Unless Namco Bandai wants to abandon the series in the west entirely they're going to localize Xillia.

That said, Graces f still isn't even out yet so they're not going to want to start hyping Xillia already.  I seriously doubt there will be any kind of official announcement until after Graces f is released.

But I will bet $100 that there will be a Xillia localization announcement before the end of 2012.  I'm dead serious about that if anyone wants to take me up on it.

The longer 11 minute Gameplay has been released as promised:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MjprcGtP3s&feature=player_embedded

This probably the best trailer released for this game so far.

Huge World Map, RTS battles, Ultima & Meteor, Airship Battles, Alternate Costumes along with gameplay of all 14 characters and more.

I'm still wiping the drool off my mouth.
