This seems ridiculously soon.  I'm going to have to hold off on it since I haven't even finished the first one yet.

I enjoy the Lucky Star anime, but I'm quiet about it because the general Lucky Star fanbase is a bit.... yeah. 

Hey now, I loved Lucky Star.  Actually I can't say that I've interacted with the fanbase much--just watched the show and enjoyed it--so I'm not entirely sure what you're talking about...

Even FPSs can break the mold.  Look at a game like Portal.  The mechanics of play are identical to your average FPS but really you can't even classify it as a shooter.  It's a first person puzzle game.

A more conventional example of a FPS that breaks the mold would be Bioshock.  Sure you shoot things, but you do so as you explore an Ayn Randian distopia.  There is a heck of a lot more to it than "point, shoot, kill, repeat".  The fact that you even make that statement indicates incredible ignorance of the genre.

Popular with whom?  I definitely get the impression that the RPGFan crowd has different tastes than the average gamer.  But then, that's why I'm here.

Lunar PSP drives me nuts sometimes.  Got it when it came out and I still haven't been able to finish it.  It's not a bad game, but it is slow.  Absurdly slow.  There are some serious load time issues made worse by some inane design decisions.  Enter a house...load load load load load...you find yourself in a foyer that's only a couple steps wide and contains absolutely nothing.  Walk a couple steps to actually get into the house and there's more loading!  And of course you have to go through it all again when you leave the house.  Why?!

And then there are the battles...none of them are even remotely difficult but every attack, friend or foe, is accompanied by ridiculously slow unskippable animations.  Since you set all your actions at the start of a round I find myself putting down the PSP and doing something else while I wait for it to be my turn again.  Enemies encounters are visable but given the often narrow corridors and the fact that they charge at you when you get close good luck actually avoiding them.  And if you go to a different screen even for an instant and then return everything respawns which makes exploring a pain.

Sorry about the mini rant there.  Some of these issues have been mentioned in reviews but personally I don't feel like they've been given enough emphasis.  For me, anyway, this game can be maddening to play.

It's not going to get a released outside Japan (Well, I hope it will get to the US anyway). Everyone knows classification boards don't like anime sex.

Classification boards don't like 'anime sex' because, let's face it, a lot of anime sex involves characters under 18.  These characters are actually adults so that shouldn't be a problem.

Heavy Rain had a full interactive sex scene (far more explicit than the likes of Mass Effect or Dragon Age) and it made it to the US uncensored.

Wow, the trailer has a lot of sex. Not sure what to make of that.

The way people talk about this game I wonder if they're looking at the same promotional material that I am...yes, there was sex in the trailer, but a lot?  I suppose compared to most games that completely shy away from the subject any nonzero amount might seem like a lot, but it really didn't seem like that much to me.

I am very glad to hear that while Atlus is including 'adult' content they do not appear to be heading down the ecchi/fanservice path.
But to me it seems to be the opposite (: The way Atlus is trying to advertise this game with the pizza ad is disgusting. Since when did they get so desperate?

I'm talking more about the content of the game (at least from what we've heard so far) than the advertising.

Still, the trailer was great.

My copy is still floating around UPS-land somewhere, since I was not home when they tried to deliver it...*sigh*

I am very glad to hear that while Atlus is including 'adult' content they do not appear to be heading down the ecchi/fanservice path.  This sounds like a game that is honestly targeting adults, with mature characters and themes.

I, for one, could not be more excited.  Hopefully it will be localized unmolested.

PS3 version will have a 'seamless introduction' to the Mass Effect universe.

Whatever that means...they're pretty light on specifics.

3402  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Atlus announces new project: Catherine on: August 18, 2010, 12:28:36 AM
This week's Famitsu has info on Atlus's newest game, Catherine.  In development for the PS3 and 360, it is described as an action adventure game with a 'horror twist'.  Details are quite scarce at this point, but Persona staff are working on it.

3403  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: X-Seed partners with Nihon Falcom on: August 17, 2010, 09:45:35 PM
I'm in the same boat as Cyril.  Shame they didn't have release date delivery for this one but I guess they only do that for bigger titles.

I'm curious what people who have it think of it so far.

3404  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: the next time someone says..... on: August 17, 2010, 08:33:46 PM
There is one thing that you have so far failed to realize. There IS an actual survey out there that I'm referencing here (or that the Colbert Report was presumptively referencing since that's where I saw this on) and that if you have a problem with this then you are bringing it up to the wrong person.

How on earth was I supposed to know you were talking about an actual survey?  You provided no reference, nor did you even mention what your statement was based on.  And you're still being incredibly vague about the contents of said survey, how it was phrased, conducted, etc.  In fact the only detail that you provide is stating that it may have been mentioned on a comedy show.  Surveys are not universal truths.

What you actually stated was of the form: most people feel X, and I stand by my original response to that.

Besides its not polygamy since its all with the same person. I just have to make sure I marry all the clones since the afore mentioned survey would have my hide if I was cheating on my hot sexy wife with one of her clones since adultery is considered to be the worst offense on said survey.

So if I'm dating somebody and I screw her identical twin sister that's not cheating?  Score!

Persona 3 is the modern Final Fantasy VII, and at this point is no surprise.

Actually, Square took some time and made several new games before they when back and started milking the FFVII franchise.  And even if the FFVII spinoffs weren't all great they were at least completely original games.  Though I do like Atlus, what they're doing with P3 seems even worse.
