I think I understand more about what Ashton is talking about after viewing these:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKmy5OKg6lo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Km3DZQp0StE (features the gamer = ISIS guy)

It starts with Zoe and goes all the way around to gaming journalism.

Even if you remove the stuff with no basis and discredit 99% of the stuff in there, even that 1% left would be pretty damning.

I don't know, man.

Don't get me wrong, Zoe Quinn seems like a terrible person.  And having a secret relationship with a game journalist who's writing about your game is definitely sleazy.

But that was still just one guy.  Most of the shit that followed was just ignorant people on twitter speaking out of their assholes (so pretty much par for the course on twitter).  Concluding that the entire game journalism industry is corrupt from this seems a bit much.

I don't know about simultaneous, but they have been making an effort to reduce the localization time.  I wouldn't expect it to be a whole year.

I have PS+ and I never play all these free games I get.  I could see it being a really great deal for some folks, but for the most part the free games either don't mesh well with my tastes or they're games I already bought.  I think I may discontinue my subscription when it lapses...

Fate/kaleid 2wei is the shit.  It's amazing how this show can have episodes of total silliness where nothing much happens (though they're still amusing) and yet also have some of the best friggin fight scenes I've ever seen in anime.  Best show this season ;)

And while we're on the topic of next season, the new Fate/Stay Night is finally here!  I'm totally psyched to see what Ufotable does with it.  Been a real wealth of Fate animes lately.

Why is anyone surprised by this?  The 3DS was region-locked too.

As I understand it, many of the Occulus Rift prototypes use a display from a Samsung phone.  Not the whole phone, of course.  But if you already have the appropriate phone then maybe that thing isn't as crazy as it sounds...

Well, I played it in Japanese.  Didn't really like it enough to double-dip, though.  Storywise it's cheesy fun, but I found the actual combat to be pretty un-fun.  Stiff and clunky.

@Aeolus: '_')d Good job on misunderstanding my perspective and twisting my words man.

Yeah, 'cause you would never do that.

I see how people are thinking with their dicks when they see Summer Lesson

Why are you guys being prudes about Summer Lesson? I don't get it. ┐( ̄ヮ ̄)┌

I understand very well the insecurity people have over this, but that's their problem, I'm not the one that's thinking with his dick after all.

Clearly the only reason anyone could have to object to a shallow, explicitly sexualized, gameplay-less waifu simulator is that they're insecure prudes who are actually sexually attracted to it.  There can be no other explanation.

'Cause it looks like it's 100% a waifu simulator and nothing else.

A game really needs something more than character designs to hook me.  I was psyched for the new Senran Kagura from the same conference, but Senran Kagura is a fun game that doesn't take itself seriously.

There's no joke with Summer Lesson, and there doesn't appear to be much in the way of gameplay either.  The whole game seems to be, "here's a pretty female high school student for you to interact with".  You don't understand why people would find that kind of creepy?

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or what, but that Summer Lesson thing just looked friggin creepy to me...

Anyway, some general impressions:
  • Lot's of titles for both PS4 & PSV, which is pretty neat.
  • PSV seems alive and well in Japan, even if Sony has abandoned it everywhere else.
  • Why did Ubisoft get so much time at a Japanese conference...
  • Speaking of too much time, Sega's Yakuza guy talks way too much.
  • New God Eater 2.  Why does literally every single one of these hunting type games seem to get a semi-sequel at some point?  Anyway, this one is for Vita and PS4 (PSP finally abandoned), so maybe, maybe they could actually localized this version...nah
  • Persona 5 looks Persona-y.  That's not a bad thing.
  • I am very excited for new Ys.
  • I am also very excited for new Senran Kagura.  Don't judge me.
  • I am not excited for another Disgaea.  I'm totally burnt-out on that series.
  • A TOUHOU GAME FOR PS...er, no, it's just ports of fan-made spin-off games.  Because Zun would never let his precious Touhou be put on a major system like that.  Then it might actually be accessible to people...
  • Oh, and Deemo is pretty neat...er, not sure why you would wait for it on Vita.  It's all touch-based anyway.

I watched a bit of the Sony conference.  I thought Deemo for Vita looked kind of neat.

Then I realized it was a port of a mobile game.

Then I downloaded the mobile game.

Then I started to play the mobile game.

I'm not sure that's what they were going for...

Jeez, PAX isn't even over yet and they're already doing TGS announcements?  Too many events!

Finally got Musashi from LSC!

I think I've 'won' the game now.  I have every single kanmusu.

Needs more box canyons.

It's an arms war.  I'm not saying that the police always behave appropriately (I mean, they clearly don't), but at the same time they're not exactly wrong to be paranoid.  Police officers are killed in the line of duty all the time.  When everyone has guns it simply doesn't take much to kill somebody and the only 'protection' is to shoot first.  Which inevitably means that sometimes you're shooting people who haven't actually done anything...then the NRA types claim the solution is even more guns.

Of course that doesn't excuse the racial profiling issue.  The fact is you're much more likely to be shot if you're black.
