Well I like free stuff...

Hatsune Miku makes her US debut...in a Toyota commercial.

I'm not sure what to say...

According to the Playstation Blog Sony is going to be offering everyone who had a PSN account a year of free identity theft protection services through Debix, Inc.  That seems like a nice gesture, but I don't know anything about Debix.  I hope this isn't one of those things that you get the first year free but they auto-bill you for the second unless you go through hoops to cancel it...

I know some people have been expressing disappoint with 2011 so far...I think these people are crazy.

The year isn't even half over and we've already seen two of my favorite handheld RPGs ever (Radiant Historia and Trails in the Sky).  DA2 didn't live up to its full potential but it was still a fun game.  And of course Portal 2 is amazing but don't forget LittleBigPlanet 2, Okamiden, Yakuza 4, and various fighting games that I don't care too much about personally but I know some people do ;)  And say what you will about Ar Tonelico Qoga but I still enjoyed it.

What do we have to look forward to?  Just LA Noire, Witcher 2, Catherine, Infamous 2, Deus Ex Human Revolution, White Knight Chroincles 2, Disgaea 4, Uncharted 3, Skyrim, etc.  Possibly Tales of Graces f if that ever gets a release date.  And of course the requisite end-of-the-year shooter smorgasbord.

I'm still working on my backlog...

People need to stop treating anonymous like some sort of coherent organization.  It isn't.

'Splinter group'?  What does that even mean?  Splintered from what?  The way anonymous works, if you say you're in anonymous then you're in anonymous.  So this really doesn't surprise me at all.  It's also completely meaningless.

No no no Dragon Age 2 had poor execution of most of its ideas from the start.Having the entire story based on just Kirkwall was pure laziness from bioware's part.

Come on, Dragon Age 2 definitely has its issues (like the constant reuse of the same maps and enemies spawning out of nowhere in a way that makes it impossible to have a coherent strategy), but this is probably my favorite aspect of the game.  Telling the tale of how a city changes over an extend period of time is something actually different and interesting.  DA:O, by comparison, was telling an incredibly generic man vs. obvious evil story.

Liege waffles are amazing.  If you've never had a proper Liege waffle then you should.  They're more of a dessert, though.

Well, it's been a while since I played it but from what I recall:

Code:
The whole pocket dimension was more for recuperating in the middle of tough dungeons, and it also served various plot purposes.  But I don't remember anything about being able to keep allies there or change your party.  Well, in all the games most party members just stand around where you leave them when they are removed from the party.  So I suppose the pocket dimension could serve as a central hub for that purpose, but it isn't really a new function.  It's just a convenient location.  None of the games encourage that kind of thing, though, since members not in your party don't gain experience or anything.

As for being more linear, I guess you could say that but it was just an expanion pack not a full game.  And they decided that rather than making a bunch of crappy sidequests they would create one of the biggest, most bad-ass dungeons seen in any modern RPG that's really a single massive sidequest.

I seriously hate Best Buy now. Been like 2 years since I last went in there, and their anime section is like 10% what it used to be, and half of it's fucking DragonBall Z.

This is not a problem limited to Best Buy.  You should pretty much give up on finding a decent anime selection anywhere besides specialty shops or online.  On the other hand, it's massively cheaper online so I'm not really complaining...

Baldur's Gate definitely had some inconsistent difficulty problems.  I made it through but not without problems (especially near the end...), and I'm the type of D&D player that can basically quote the rules from memory.  A lot of the time I would just expect to die the first time in a battle but try to hang on long enough to learn all the cheap tricks the designers were throwing at you (and there were a shit-ton of cheap tricks) so that I would be ready to avoid them the second time around.

Just about every issue I had with Baldur's Gate (the difficulty, slow pacing, lack of direction, etc) was fixed in the sequel, though.  And Throne of Bhaal was a pretty awesome conclusion to the series.  I can't recall much in Throne of Bhaal that has to do with Bioware's current design choices, though.

But since you already picked up Baldur's Gate at least play it long enough so that you learn to love Minsc.

Another Tsundere, Luca from ArTone2 was at least cheerful and sweet before the hard-hitting emotions started to pent up.

How in the hell is Luca a tsundere?!  She starts out completely dere, and only later do you find out that she has some serious issues to deal with.  If Luca is a tsundere then the term has truly lost all meaning...

Wait, the Canadians are talking about fleeing to the US?  But Canada is where we always talk about fleeing to!  That just doesn't work...

Atlus, I love you, but I don't actually want anything in that deluxe edition...yet part of me is tempted to get it anyway, just because it's a deluxe edition.  I have a problem...

The CD and artbook, on the other hand, I'm all over.

Mystic powers grant me a miracle!

Time to barf.

Also, I hated KOS-MOS.  She was one big deus ex machina.  There was no sense of purpose to her design, just whatever random crap the developers felt like throwing at you at that moment.
