Some sanity.

Very good article.  Points out a lot of the outright factual errors that the media is making in the case.  Anyone commenting on this incident should read the above.

A bit more biased, naturally, but it's also worth reading Assange's own thoughts.

Great... now I get to play this is 10 years after fans make a translation patch.

There actually is a fan translation patch in the works already.  I doubt it will be 10 years.  However, it sounds like if you've upgraded beyond firmware 3.41 then you're SOL right now.

I made it through Vesperia PS3 (without ever having played the 360 version) pretty well, but other than conversations with random townspeople every line of dialogue is voiced in that game.  It really helped.

Actually, I'm kind of in the mood for tackling another RPG in Japanese.  It's good practice.  But it's important to pick the right one.

Does anyone know how much voice acting there is in Graces F?  Since my kanji skills suck that significantly affects importability for me.

I was actually getting a Ph.D. in medium energy nuclear physics, but I fell in love with teaching while getting my MS.  Glad I made the change!

Neat.  What were you studying?  Medium energy is a broad category.  Would that be like JLab?

I'm a PhD student.  And yes, I consider that work seeing how I get paid for it.

What are you PhD'ing in?

High energy nuclear physics.

Also, the psp is so loud when it reads the discs which seems quite frequently. What is up with that?

Welcome to PSP ownership.

If it really bothers you, get a big memory stick and buy stuff off the PSN.

2-How SE says this will be the best looking game till FFAgitoXIII, but from what they've shown I don't think it surpasses MGS:PW... The game still looks great though.

Strictly in terms of looks the game to beat on the PSP is Ghost of Sparta, and I can't see anything surpassing that anytime soon...heck, probably ever.  The system is nearing the end of its life.

I'm hoping to maybe get my hands on VC2 next summer, but that means I'll need a PSP as well, so it may or may not happen unfortunately.

Get one.  If not for VC2 then for VC3, which from what I've seened looks a lot better (though I did like VC2's gameplay, the story segments were garbage).  Not to mention that there are tons of other SRPGs on the PSP (though a lot of them are ports are remakes).

At least we get a whole bunch of NISA titles... =(

I appreciate the efforts of NISA to localize as much as they can (even if a lot of it is of questionable quality).  Really, I do.  But it is kind of funny how thanks to them and companies like Xseed, Aksys, and to some degree Atlus it almost feels like we're more likely to get obscure and mediocre JRPGs localized than the big-budget titles.

New game by the Yakuza team.  andriasang has the details.

Was anyone else really disappointed by this reveal?  I like the Yakuza games and I'm curious what else they can do, but that trailer looks generic as heck.  Couple that with some painfully bad dialogue (in what is supposed to be a serious drama) and a treasure trove of tired cliches and I have to wonder what the heck were they thinking...

If this is how Japanese developers think they're going to succeed in the western market then I wish they would just keep making games focused on Japan.

Is it possible somebody else got their hands on your CC info?
3074  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs this gaming generation_Which system to get? on: November 29, 2010, 01:45:08 PM
I'd recommend Gurumin: A monstrous adventure (also made by Falcom who do the Ys series), Half Minute Hero, ZHP, Riviera, Yggdra union, and Knights in the Nightmare.

BTW, if you buy Knights in the Nightmare now it comes with a download code for a free copy of Yggdra Union.  I got that and all I've been playing is Yddgra Union...haven't even gotten around to Knights yet.  From what I understand the entire first print run is supposed to have the code but if they print more later it will not include it.  It came out pretty recently so you should still be good for now.

Also, Ys Seven is great.  Can't recommend it enough.

I honestly didn't like the PSP Lunar very much.  Looks pretty, but it's very slow paced.  Long (and frequent) load times, painfully slow unskippable attack animations, etc.  It's a pretty easy and simplistic game too, so I found myself having to multitask when I played it or else I would just get bored.  In battle I would literally cue my commands, put the PSP down, and do something else while I waited for it to be my turn again.

Of course details are scarce right now and it's impossible to be sure but I have high hopes that Catherine will be an example of handling sex well in games.

And I like that poster...
