I really liked The Girl Who Leapt through time but I found Summer Wars to be a pretty big let-down.  And I still haven't gotten around to watching Wolf Children...

In the category "games that won't ever get localized"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buRrdnZTMVA



game is:
夏色ハイスクル★青春白書 ~転校初日のオレが幼馴染と再会したら報道部員にされていて激写少年の日々はスクープ­大連発でイガイとモテモテなのに何故かマイメモリーはパンツ写真ばっかり という現実と­向き合いながら考えるひと夏の島の学園生活と赤裸々な恋の行方。~

or:
High School Colour of Summer - Youthful Days White Paper: The story of my summer island school life and the whereabouts of my bare-naked love as I face up to the reality of the fact that on my first day as a transfer student at a new school I met an old friend who made me join the school newspaper and spent my days as a shock-snap photographer boy getting scoop after scoop but despite this making me surprisingly popular with girls the only thing in my memory is the panty photos

I don't know, we got Akihabara'S trip and that's a game I would've written off as ungettable. I'd say that the possibility exists, given how crazy Marvelous or XSeeD can be at times.

Akiba's Trip is one of those games that sounds much worse in premise than it is in execution.  The whole stripping thing is played off more for comedy than titillation, and despite being a core mechanic for the gameplay they don't really dwell on it.  No drawn-out fanservice shots or anything, it just happens.  Not to mention that for once there's actually gender-equality in the clothing destruction department.  You'll be stripping just as many men as women.  How many games can you say that about?

Anyway, I think Senran Kagura might actually be a better example of Xseed pushing boundaries.  Still, both Senran Kagura and Akiba's Trip have core gameplay that goes beyond just being a perv.  I'm not sure this game does...

I was usually overleveled for the fanatics tower in FFVI because I would hold off on it until after getting Umaro.  (What do you mean I can't attack?  I never listened to your commands in the first place.  Smash!)  Meaning I would usually just be able to survive ultima.

Oh brother.  To the whole article.  The new character, to the silly response, everything. 
Then again, I don't really take Tekken too seriously to begin with.

Here's a link to the infamous Lucky Chloe character


There seems to be a lot of stupidity on display here, on all sides.  But I think what bothers me the most is the idea what NeoGAF is somehow the spokesperson for North American gamers.  What?  I don't agree with like 90% of the shit posted on that site...

I've had a pretty miserable last year...

Citizen Kane Returns, now on blu-ray

;)

Well for starters they probably should have just called it "Final Fantasy VII" instead of "Final Fantasy VII Returns" (that's literally what they're calling it).  Who the heck gives a straight port a new title?

Mind you I'm also in the camp that they shouldn't remake it.

If we had a topic for this game already I couldn't find it.  But anyway, a 16 minute gameplay clip was shown at the Playstation Experience event and it looks great:

The gifs won't go to waste: Yakuza 5 is being localised. Guess Sega finally figured out people actually want to buy games that aren't Sonic.

I'm not sure that's actually true.  It sounds like it's actually Sony who's localizing it.

Nope.
71  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden 1 and 2 finally coming to psn. on: December 06, 2014, 04:50:25 PM
Not sure why your topic says "1 and 2".  The second is news, sure, but the first one has been on PSN for years.
72  Media / Miscellaneous Games / YAKUZA 5 IS COMING WEST on: December 06, 2014, 02:36:55 PM
At this point I think we had all given up.  But it's real.
73  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: December 05, 2014, 06:05:50 PM
It's actually one of the songs in the game too, but you don't unlock it until you're pretty high level.

Also, got my second UR a few days ago.  It's the most recent Eli one (seems there's a higher chance of scouting the recent additions).  Love it.

Make sure to log in everyday this week because they're giving bonus gems once a day to celebrate the big update.

As someone who has done fan translations before let me just say this: Honorifics are a colossal pain in the ass to translate.  There is no 'good' way to handle them.  There really is no English equivalent.  And sure most of the time they don't add much, but there are also times when the way they're used is significant and you can't exactly only include them then (that would be even weirder...).

if a black entertainer singing a song about "white christmas" offends you, you are a moron (and probably a closet racist).

I just, I don't even....

ugh

Too be perfectly honest, I can't help but feel that the article is intentionally blowing things out of proportion.  Like somebody said, "hey find some idiots on twitter and write a story about it".  (Not like finding idiots on twitter is hard to do)  Is it really a 'firestorm'?  How many people are actually saying dumb shit like this?  Hell, most of the tweets they quote aren't even attacks exactly (despite the article's headline), just pointing out the incongruity.  I think it's more a case of inflated self-importance and thinking stuff like, "he's black, he should be joining our protest instead".  Which is still fucking dumb, but perhaps not as rage-inducing.

But it's easier and more profitable to write clickbait trash.
