Will Wheaton is voicing honest Abe.

The twitter feed is alight with a lot of salty folks who hate him (poor dude, but it's kinda funny).

Love you Will!  Not on TNG, but your work post-that has been great!

Canada is adorable. No, more like moe. You just want to hug it (because it looks so cute in its parka) and tell it not to mind that mean America.

Daw, thanks? xD
SOme of us are still butts.

URL says it all.

First and foremost: I like these as more about concept than the actual aesthetic design -- some being kind of unattractive even in a general sense (and while I like the idea behind Zero Suit Samus's outfit, it's kinda more "war in the trenches" than "bounty hunter in space", or Scarlet Witch looking like a new age hippie) or whether or not it "fits" (certainly Peach's new outfit being a huge swing and a miss to what the Mario Realm is all about).  But I think it's a great way at how to make outfits less ridiculous and fetishized.

Very nice!  All four!  And I get a little excited when I see a series I recognize

A Zelda Jazz album would be sex for ears.

Really curious about this, or any jazz album.  Truly an underappreciated music genre.  It's softer listening but without ever being to tiresome.  I'm not sure how well the Okami album will work for me since I barely remember the tracks from it, but the samples are lovely in and of itself.

Europe wins [again].  That is a sexy steel book:


As is, I really really adore the Type-0 Collector's for it's gorgeous golden colour choices.


More than anything else, I'm pretty sure these fans have issues with the arrangements changing the feeling of original tracks, which they have heard for over 10 years now.

Bingo, honestly I only noticed the changes for a few songs myself.
But man, the Besaid Island one really annoyed me.  That was a song on my iPod for several years, I love how chill it is.  Then HD-remake made it much more romantic and lost that original flavour.

Again, not a big deal.  It's sort of nice to have "alternate song versions" and it's the same reason I never complained about the instrumental Tales openings.

Amazin Amazon ITA (having given the accurate release date for MM3D) is saying "Giugno" (June)

http://www.amazon.it/Nintendo-Xenoblade-Chronicles-X/dp/B00LGILW0M/

Might not be accurate, but I like to think of this game as somewhat a priority release given the amount of press it's getting (and Nintendo's otherwise "full" release schedule).

The fact the most important old school FF titles haven't gotten better treatment is a sin.

I don't think I'd triple-dip for this, but something tells me I might anyway because I''m a big sucker/idiot anyways.  Slightly better graphics would make the purchase more enticing though (like Type-0), but as it stands....eh.

Not sure whether this warrants a topic, but why not.

So FFX is getting released again, on the PS4, upgrades even what the PS3 looked like (bit harder to discern the difference though)).

Key features included:
Quote
Cross-Save Functionality – Players can transfer their save and continue their progress across the PlayStationŽ4 system, PlayStationŽ3 system, and the PlayStationŽVita handheld entertainment system. (PlayStationŽ3 and PlayStationŽVita versions sold separately.)
Ability to Switch Between Original and Remastered Soundtrack - Play FINAL FANTASY X with the beautifully remastered soundtrack or, new to the PlayStationŽ4 system version, switch back to the original classic tracks.
Remote play – Supported for the PlaystationŽVita handheld entertainment system.
(the middle one is def something I wanted)

Gets another pretty Collector's Ed. (love the packaging boxart)


I don't want to link HD enormous pictures, so here's the Neogaf thread about it (with the convenient quote/resize thing, so click to expand the pictures)

I'll do one (in descending order):

I am! Well... was. Just went through again... but got stuck after getting the boss key and ran out of time. ...So, third time's the charm, I guess? :/

Definitely doesn't help that while they upped the 'cool' of the bossfight, it takes a lot longer now.

Oh, just a warning.  You know how Zelda games tend to have one infuriating element to them?  The moon dungeon rooms for Zora and Goron suck a lot of butt.

Wait. Does the slowed down Zora Mask making going through the Zora section of the Moon easier (not that it was that hard to begin with since its literally a question of making three binary choices for a prize/completion, and the only hard part is finding the Piece of Heart)?


I have played MM on N64 back in the day, but I don't remember the moon very well. I'll keep that in mind and prepare myself!

In all honesty, getting the Piece of Heart out of the Goron Room is the only part of the Moon that actively sucks. Ricocheting off of pre-opened chests and over narrow ledges and precarious jumps should be all anyone who's ever played through that section needs to hear to remember the horrors of that room.

The Zora Mask kinda sucks because you just leisurely swim for what's a timed part of the dungeon.  It's also what makes the beaver race a nightmare now because it's kind of hard to 'start swimming' without the awkwardness of trying to initially direction yourself right.

The Goron segment is a really tough now because, unlike the N64, the 3DS analog stick doesn't have the octagon edges that make it easier to 'slot' into a direction (N, E, S, W, NE, SW, etc.) so the ricochet is a LOT harder to aim into.  You basically gotta hit the ramp RIGHT ON, and let go of the control stick and let the automatic rolling take over.  It's not fun, but manageable, but then it gets shitty again for the heart piece.

This LPer found an elegant solution by creating a respawn in the moon kid room at least.

Also, N64 comparison video to make you remember and realize how fucking beautiful the 3DS remake is, even if it is for a dark cave.

I'd still love to see Twilight Princess get remake or HD treatment...  I still find it one of the prettiest games in the series and would love a some upgraded textures (plus, let's be serious, even though the game fails in certain respects, it had some of the best dungeons in the series if not the best overall batch).

More Wild ARMs 2. Went from recruiting Tim to making it back to the town in Brad's starting scenario yesterday. I'm still pretty overleveled at this point though.

Tim's design confuses me.  It might be because I think poncho's are pretty hideous and I'm still questioning the revisiting of that trend in the mid-2000s.
