This is going to be like their 10th commercial project so I don't think it's right to call them a fan translation group anymore.  Though that is how they started, sure.

I don't know why you're acting so indignant, Damacon.  Here's how you could have started this conversation:
"I really like games such as <classic game> but I am saddened that nobody seems to make games like that anymore.  Are there still games like that being made?"

I'd bet you anything that a thread like that would have been positively received.

How you actually started this conversation:
"Everything is horrible.  Games suck now.  <critically acclaimed game that happens to be in a style I don't like> is a bad game.  The industry is doomed."

I think you're aware that you're just ranting (you even called your original post a rant), but you shouldn't be surprised that people react negatively to a rant, especially when they don't even agree with its premise.

I have joined the ranks of people who stream stuff.

It's, uh, not very interesting at the moment.  But a new event starts in a few days and I'll probably be playing at lot more then.  At the moment I'm just toodling around figure this stuff out 'cause I'm new to streaming.

All retail Vita games are also available digitally.  That's Sony's policy.  So yeah, I wouldn't worry about not being able to find it in the future unless you absolutely have to have a physical copy.

That didn't even occur to me when my buddy was strong arming me into this purchase. Well that changes things up for me a bit. Any advantage of having a physical copy in regards to use with the vita tv I should be aware of?

The biggest advantage of a physical copy is saving space on your memory card.  Those memory cards aren't cheap.  Of course it's not like you need to have all of your games installed at once, you can back them up to a PS3 (have they implemented that for PS4 yet?) or PC with Sony's software suite installed.  Or just download them again but that's kind of a pain...

Actually I'm thinking of a standard Vita there.  Not sure how the backing up is implemented for Vta TV.

Seems like just yesterday everyone was complaining about the lack of news about this game.  Now suddenly it's too much.  You just can't win...

Have you played Trails in the Sky, Damacon?  It sounds like exactly what you want.

I can't really think of any games that did naughty bits very well except perhaps for any that faded to black and let the players' imagination fill in what happened. Bioware sex bits are more laughable than sexy due to how clunky and awkward they look. The fade to black thing... You think Tidus and Yuna did more than splash around in the water near Macalania Woods?

You know, this might seem like an odd choice given how immaturely the rest of the series approaches this topic, but I actually think Ar Nosurge handled it pretty well.  It was pretty darn unambiguous what happened without actually resorting to being explicit.

I don't know anyone else who owns the game. :/

A lot of RPGFanners have it!  I haven't played in a while, but I could be talked into it...

(PS3 or Vita is the next question)

Doesn't actually matter, it's cross-play (wasn't at first but it got patched in).

You are correct but I also gave up no point in trying to change peoples minds even if I can defend all my points and no one can say anything but these so called good games exist out there so spend like 1000-1500 dollars buying every system so you might get to play 1 or 2 goods games on them yay for that. If nostalgia was buying one system and being satisfied with my purchase I am guilty thank god for nostalgia.

  If we were talking about anime we could probably all be friends I spend 15 bucks a month for endless anime some are bad, some are good but who cares its a great deal. But with games that is a lot of money over time to waste trying to find a good game in all the really really bad games they make. So whats my options find a site like this that does reviews but a lot of good it does me most of the time because they rate everything either good or above average regardless if the review is telling me the game sucks.



Sturgeon's Law: 90% of everything is crap.

That was true before and it's still true today.  This argument will never go anywhere if you're just cherry picking examples from either side.  But your stubborn refusal to even look at what's available today isn't helping.

There is quite a few anime games I wouldn't mind playing like the Girls und Panzer game or that newer Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei game I bet they would be fun games but again will never see the light of day over here.

Uh, both the games you mentioned look terrible...and this is coming from a fan of the series (well at least the novels for Mahouka, the anime was kind of bleh).

Inazuma was a game first, got turned into an anime later.  But yeah, it's a very RPG-ish management kind of thing...about soccer.  It is kind of a neat idea.

Just noticed that dual audio has been confirmed to be back for the NA/EU release of Ayesha Plus.  I'm happy, it always seemed like an odd omission in the original.

I'm still trying to figure out what the heck the KanColle anime is going to be all about...

The first PV surprised a lot of people with its serious tone.  Not to mention it was the first official depiction of what ship girls fighting actually looks like (the game is fairly abstract on this point, battles are mostly represented by icons and such).  The undeniably odd visuals aside, personally I actually found the serious tone kind of refreshing.  The game has always had serious elements but a lot of the spin-offs emphasize the sillier stuff.  Though there have been quite a few doujins and such that have delved into the serious side, with some interesting results.

Now they just recently released a new PV that appears to be a total 180 in tone.  Actually, it appears to basically be Fubuki Ganbarimasu the anime.  Perhaps I should clarify, Fubuki Ganbarimasu is one of the first (maybe the first?  not sure) official spin-off mangas based on KanColle.  It's probably the most well known and popular series at the moment.  It's a 4 panel gag manga, though, and I would argue that it doesn't really stand on its own very well.  It's more like a supplement to the game, much of the appeal comes from seeing what the characters you know from the game are doing in their downtime.  But it's only half the story because that manga never even shows their sorties and stuff.

So anyway, we've got two PVs that appear to be showing very different takes on the same show.  I guess maybe they're implying that they'll be doing a bit of both?  I don't really know how well it's going to work.  This is such an odd property to adapt into an anime yet it has such a large and passionate fanbase there is going to be a lot of complaining no matter what they do.

Still a much better written show than Cross Ange.

Heehee.  So true...but I bailed pretty early on that one.
