I honestly see no reason why voice actors should limited in roles due to ancestry.  At all.  This isn't acting in the visual medium where racial background might be important.

Do you complain when Japanese actors badly butcher western words or names?  Which is about 4/5 of the time, possibly more.  It drove me crazy when one of the Shining characters who shares my name (and Dice's, actually) couldn't pronounce it at all, but I'm not asking them change their accent or manner of speech.

Edit: For some reason the honorifics bothered me more in Persona Q than they did in P3 and P4.  It's probably because of the change of setting and it feels a lot more forced in Q.

I find it extremely hard to believe that you're not having texture loading issues to at least a minor extent.  I've seen differing reports on it, though and some people with fewer than others.  It is a confirmed issue, one that, as far as I'm aware Bioware has said nothing about fixing.

I'm very sensitive towards FPS drops, so to me they're very blatant.  The entire first cutscene basically chugs, for example, while simultaneously not loading the NPC clothing at all.   It's a poorly coded mess and I'm ashamed it was released in this state.  The FPS tend to start dropping when rifts are anywhere nearby but are decent otherwise.

I have a thin PS3.  My old fat PS3 died a while ago.

While Wendee is a genuinely good actress with a lot of range, I just can't hear her in any character she plays.  I think if games laid off on using her for maybe two years she might go back to normal for me.  It's like how Crispin Freeman used to be as overused as JYB and Yuri Lowenthall are today, but has basically stopped acting in games all together and sounds more "fresh."

(I hear he still acts in a ton of anime though?)

Anyone playing this on PS3? Been busy with work/night classes/other games and haven't opened the packaging yet. Seeing the grief online I am half wondering if I should try take it back and get It for the ps4 instead (don't have one yet but will sometime in 2015)

I'm playing it on PS3 and it plays horribly.  Clothing and weapon textures don't load half the time, FPS drops are frequent,  even in cutscenes, and the trees look like early PS2 level. I'm not joking or exaggerating, I think FFXI's trees have more detail.

I know this is terribly minor and insignificant, but I am so disappointed that Fuuka's actress has been permanently changed from Paula Tiso to Wendee Lee.  I love Paula and she's an incredible actress (Fuuka's issues were due to Atlus and bad voice direction, most likely) and while Wendee is great too, she's so overused that I can't hear her as anyone but Wendee Lee.

Rita pops up daily on Amiami in the pre-owned section.

There are also a few other sites, like Mandarake and Rakuten you can check out that I've seen her frequently on.  Yahoo Auction Japan is an even better option once you get over your fear of proxies as well.

And that's fine, even if I don't agree.

However, for me it really isn't a waste of shelf space.  It may just be how I keep my game collection organized, but I have plenty of room in front of the games and on the top of shelves for display where games wouldn't be placed anyway.  I also wouldn't just put my games around the house like I would personally hand-painted kits.  I've found that you can get away with putting things you've worked on yourself around the house because they're a hobby/art/craft, while games around the house would just look like clutter.

Call me crazy, but if you're going to keep everything sealed then I have to wonder why you buy them in the first place...

Agreed, I can't say I collect figures simply to resell them later. I mean, sure, selling one if you need emergency extra cash or something, but buying only to keep sealed and sell later?

I don't get it.

Yeah, I'm not big on Abyss as a whole but he's really fantastic.  If there's only one Tales fig that should be owned, it's Luke, in my opinion.

He really needed that re-release, he was going for like $200+ unopened.

Since I know some of you collect Tales figures, I just thought I'd give the friendly news that Alter's Luke is being re-released sometime in 2015.  I own him and he's absolutely fabulous and if you enjoy TotA I'd highly recommend him.

Here's a link for how he looks:

I don't know, I like the design.  It's a nice mix of classic, traditional villainy.

Disliking a female character isn't sexism. Disliking a game with a female lead isn't sexism, either, even if they don't provide reasons.  It only becomes sexism if they state that the female sex is the reason for the game being bad.

I'm pretty sure most people who dislike FFXIII dislike it for reasons aside from Lightning.  I have heard arguments about why Lightning is a bad character, most of which are silly or outright wrong, but none of which say it's because she's female.

I'm also sure that people who hope FFXV will be what "revives" FF don't believe so because it has a male cast and MC.  They do it because they're excited about the style of gameplay (open world, realistic, KH-style ARPG), music, or some other aspect, such as more freedom than the early FFXIII allowed.

Ah, my mistake then.  Thanks for going out of your way to look that up.

Was Alisha the one like twenty pages/a year or so back who didn't think pure ARPGs were RPGs (and didn't like ARPGs) and therefore said FFXV wasn't a RPG?

Who was that, anyway?
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Atelier Series on: November 25, 2014, 05:24:44 PM
I did, mostly because I'm just a GUST collector and can't say no, even to a bad paintjob.  I really should have gotten her secondhand if I didn't want to sound like a huge hypocrite.

Here's one of Griffon's previous attempts at the color transition and hence why I'm worried about Escha's sleeves.
