Not that I want to start a political discussion, but this video is too bizarre not to share:

And this blithering idiot wants to be president...

She sounds drunk.... Yikes.
She's giving brunettes with glasses a bad name.....

This is real cool (and the song is cool too!).  Real time face mapping.

Hopefully if the quality of the game is subpar, less people will buy it right out of the gate and the Tales team will get the message that their games are really lacking in quality of late.

Have any of last year's launch issues with a small handful of titles stopped people?? :(

EDIT: Spoke to soon.  ALISHA DLC.  Free for 2 weeks.

Probably the best that we can expect from Bandai (considering that I'm surprised they're even offering it for free for any length of time).

Not that we can even expect the DLC to make it out here, let alone for free (especially since their reasons for the freeness more or less boil down to "Sorey we lied to you. Here, we've got your character right here, and you can even have her for free (for now).".

The outfit is nice though. Especially dat hat.


Hmm.  Yes, I suppose it isn't too ostentatious, besides such a flashy and self-important colouring.  I much prefer the older designs myself.  However.... What on Earth!?!?! The length of her frock is preposterous and completely unbecoming of a young accomplished woman!  Such a woman would only be seen "late after dark", I bet!  She will ruin her family and be marked for a silly girl and ridiculous flirt in all of the Highland Kingdom  SCOFF!!!

Oh my fucking jesus a minor update worth posting in news.

TitS: SC localization.
While I am ecstatic at the news.....how long has this taken now? I know that the thing is ridiculously long, but at this point I had forgotten it even existed.....and most of the plot of the first game. x_x

There's a very good reason about the delay.

Code:
suicide attempt

Geez, I thought you were making a joke at first.
That's really unfortunate.  I'm no stranger to the blues and can imagine what pressures like that are like, whether real, imagined, exaggerated, or a symptom of something else.  I'm glad the story ends on a brighter note at least.

EDIT:  Do you like puzzles?  did you enjoy Braid and Professor Layton maybe?

Well Jonathan Blow's new upcoming game "The Witness" allegedly has over 650 puzzles!!

^ Good god I read that thing.  I know I fucking swear a bunch, but that poster had full-out tourette syndrome.  It's an absolute disgrace and sounds like something that would be written by some angry 4chan user.   The few actual complaints did resonate with me, but otherwise half of it was about Alisha-Flynning it (Zesty PS4 here we come?) and bitching about Denzel (an obvious bias since their tumblr seems to be designed around his character).

But even that said, just the impressions and videos from actual importers, the game doesn't really feel like it's worth the full price.  I'll wait and take it on a price cut sale.

I was just about to post that!!  YES!!!  I kinda REALLY wanna buy it for nostalgia's sake (despite its liberties with the plot).

I also really loved the Mario one --- that comic was seriously goofy and the best kind of funny.  An early attempt of giving Mario a voice and it turned out great.

Vesperia nailed the FUCK out of a beautiful and appealing atmosphere.  It was unique where it had to be, gorgeous when it wanted to be, and was just a divine looking game that completely owned the cel-shading style.  The game's 10th anniversary is coming up in a few years (oh man times flies), I highly doubt Banco will ignore that and I'd love to see a sequel or port since my 360 has long since died.  I know there hasn't been many games, but I've really not cared for the direction of the series since Vespy and Graces.  



(( this is neither here nor there, and I know a lot of people hate paid DLC costumes, but honestly thinking about it, Vesperia PS3 had such awesome sets...  Final Armour "costumes" based on the item screen image???  Namco-Series Cameo Costumes?!!  TALES VILLAINS COSTUMES!?!? *dead* ))

Xillia 1 was a disappointment, as was Xillia 2 in different ways. I really, really want Zestiria to be good, but I'd be nervous about picking it up on Day 1. I don't want to blow my money on another meh game.

I'm curious how TOX2 disappointed you, actually.
I know it was the recycling that really put a damper in my end-reactions (I was fine WHILE I was playing, but felt pretty jilted afterwards).

A lot of people are really taking Alisha's "demotion" pretty hard.

I don't really care, I'm more sad the rest ain't up to snuff and sad a series I've loved for a while just hasn't gotten its "spark" back for a few years in a row now (c'est la vie). :P

Honestly, with everything I've heard, it sounds as unpolished/incomplete[?] as the first Xillia was.  I'm gonna hold out for a Zesty 2, or a PS4 version, or worst case, a sale.  I'm sure I wouldn't "hate it", but paying full-price doesn't really sound ideal for me right now.

My girlfriend threw me a surprise party on saturday.  It wasn't my birthday or anything. she is just insane.  I hate surprise parties but she loves them and I appreciate the effort. Also she got really drunk.  Like sorority sister completely over the top white girl wasted.

Then she threw up pink all over the love seat in our front room.  Then I drank sake and watched home alone.

Today I feel like I got hit with a baseball bat (Even though I felt fine yesterday).

Is your girlfriend Pinkie Pie?

oh my god

Yes, I watched MLP. Yes a love it. Move along now, ya'll.

I meant more the connection was hilarious. x)

We have this conversation every time I go to Magnolia Thunderpussy >:C


Can you blame us.  :(

My mental state:

1. Realize Margaret Thatcher died in 2013.
2. Wonder why I can't remember 2014.

Honestly, my University years are kinda just a blur that all happened at the same instant.  I'm looking at "new" movie dates and realizing they're already a few years old.
I feel like grade school and high school is when time dragged on forever...  Now, I'm gonna be retiring two week from now...

I've been playing some Child of Light, since I couldn't really think of anything else to spend my PSN credit on. It is a beauty for sure, but maybe not really as charming as I hoped. There's a lot of empty in it. I realized I've just been killing monsters for exp and despite being in chapter 7, I have yet to use a single item I found (other than stat boosting ones). The simplicity does keep me going, but I always think there is something wrong when I don't have things like shops or gear options in my RPGs.

It's definitely like an "RPG lite".  It's lovely, and I'd LOVE another title, but there's a lot more that could have been done.  That said, I thought it was still worth the money -- hell, if not for the OST on its own and gorgeous use of watercolour artwork as graphics.
