Even with kinda crappy graphics, the shock scenes still (well) shock quite damn well (takes me back to the PSX/PS2 horror days...that's probably not a compliment, but I mean well).

Just got Dio's ending, and tried to hit up the magenta arc for all but one path.  Got his ending, then a bunch of Game Overs (which are sorta: "Well shucks, that happened, let's go chill out I guess"), and one "to be continued".

I like this game is much less subtle about it's upcoming spoilers.  And the puzzles are fantastic and really make you sit and think (except, I got real paper, the in-game memo just doesn't always cut it). 

A few major gripes:  First, is sitting through the door-opening sequences. Nuance?  Maybe...  But, these take a good five seconds longer than anyone needs to see, and can happen several times in a row. 
That, and c'mon... silent protagonist?  I get it in the event the character doesn't say a damn word (though I hate it even then), but Sigma has a fully fleshed out personality, there's no point in keeping him silent, it just makes it kinda awkward to go from voice acting to text beeps (and at least Troy Baker would have been a great character to vocalize some of Sigma's funnies and dramatics). 
A minor nuance is Amanda Wyn Lee's [sp?] voice... She's like a 60 year old doing characters 1/3 her age (effectively making it seem like she's trying to hard to sound "cute" and sweet as Clover).  Guess I'm just bored of her voice.

Wait...they didn't...

Yep; they pulled the 'Lawl; buy our next game in two+ years if you want the full story' nonsense.
Here I thought after 999 Aksys was a bit above that. :-\ That...honestly kinda ruins the game just
a little for me. If I get hooked into a story I prefer to finish it from start to end. I don't watch trilogies
if I don't have all three parts. I don't read series novels until I have all the installments. Ect.

This is just kinda...cheap and underhanded. *sigh* Not sure how much of the story I'll even remember
in 2014 (or 2015 if they're slow) or if I'll even still have the game around for a refresher. The way they have it set up, unlike 999,
you're pretty much going to have to have Virtue's Last Reward fresh in your mind to know what's going on.

Maybe I'll feel better once it all settles in but for right now...low blow Aksys. Low blow.

One quick thing: don't blame Aksys. They're only the US publisher, I doubt they have any real say in what happens with the game.

I had a feeling it wouldn't be the last.  And it's a good series, so I see no problem with them making a possible "three-quel".  The label on the front says it's part of the "ZERO ESCAPE *Series*", and usually you don't use a label like that to something only two books/games long.

Thanks to peeps so far. :)

I know the shipping sucks, but everything else (I like to think) is quite the steal (and prices are negotiable).

I guess I am an ass man more than a penis man.

Seeing a schlong does nada for me.

I always thought a penis looked like something that shouldn't be there... then again, I guess I'm more used to my junk being more of a "hollow" than an appendage.

Butt's make me giggle though.  You can be a scrawny wiener and it still jiggles in an amusing way.

Shin Sekai Yori - Ep 04

Good episode, but the animation and direction of this episode (especially the latter, which thus far I've praised) was really DERPy this week.  The animation got funny, the zoom ins uneccessary and with a poor frame rate, and the pacing was like it was done for an undergrad's animation reel.

It *was* a good episode though, took a real different pave than the other episodes, splitting off from the main group and focusing on lead girl and lead boy (?).  There's some sexy tension (for 12 year olds??!), some monster with big titties, and more to look forward to next week as things keep getting weirder in the world 1,000 years from now.

Game of Thrones as boobs.

American Horror Story has asses.

Something for everybody! I don't think we've gotten any boobage on AHS yet. There's some weird thinking that says it's ok to show a naked behind, but not a boob. Or at least not the dreaded nipple! Now that's naughty.
BTW, GOT shows it ALL. I have yet to see season 2 and it pisses me off. Probably won't be released on Blu until Spring. Ugh.

Yet never any penis.... then again I don't even know if women wanna see that.
I find it annoying.  Not so much Game of Thrones, but I hate that every goddamn HBO show seems to have this as a show requirement of some sort.


Elementary -- great episode, I'm really enjoying this show.  He's not quite as infalliable as the Cumberbatch one, which helps stretch out the case and give you time to maybe make some guesses yourself.  Definitely on the weekly watch list.

The Office -- better season than the last; Andy sucks though, they never know what to do with him and because of it he's gone through everything giving him some importance I don't think he deserves.

30 Rock -- this season has been unreal.  Latest episode was probably the weakest of the bunch, but still a strong send off for the show so far.

New Girl -- Had this in it.  Amazing!

- Prices are Negotiable
- I've got no problem with discounting bundles
- + Shipping; Approx. $15 extra for anything outside of Canuck Land Canada

Bravely Default Game and OST -- Yup.  Found the super duper edition for a very reasonable price, but since I don't want the OST and can't play the game, I'm throwing it out to the market!  I'm thinking $40/ea + shipping (or $90 for both, shipping included).  PM to Negotiate

Art Books:

Legend of Zelda Hyrule Historia -- CHEAP.  Name a price.  Why so cheap?  First, because it's the Japanese edition, and an English is on the way.  Also cheap because there is a bit of English writing penned in by me and a bud (this is one all of like five pages; trying to improve the jpn skillz....).  But nonetheless, amazing finally revealed art collection of the 25 year old series. ($1 for each year it's been around, $26! :D -- still more than half the price most retailers are selling it)

Megaman Zero Art Collection -- FUCK Megamen, s'ALL ABOUT ZERO.  This is the Udon official English translation, great collection of art for each game, a unique style, and all around great atmosphere created by the artists. $25.

Tales of 15th Anniversary -- Big-ass Bible-sized book.  Contains main artwork from EVERY game, even the shitty infamous Tales of Tempest.  From Phantasia to Xillia  Also contains Ougi cut-ins and NPC art (holy shit, that's what some of them look like!).  Lots of writing, but still consists of a ton of art from the series across the years. $35.

Tales of Vesperia - Collection of main artwork from the game by the famous Tales and Ah Megami-sama! artist Kosuke Fujishima.  $15.

Tales of Legendia - Collection of art that came with the game when you pre-ordered it once upon a time ago.  Main art, anime art, graphics, settings, etc.  $10.

Wild Arms Alter Code F - Amazing collection of the popular Spaghetti Western RPG for the remade PS2 version.  Very colourful, great cross-stitched artwork.  $20.

Wild Arms 3 Art Book - Fantastic artwork for one of the classics in the series (and before the art got all weird and cutesy in WA4 & 5...blegh).  All main characters and art for every NPC, place to visit, and GFs.  I love this one.  $40.

Shigenori Soejima's Art Collection - Featuring artwork by the brilliant Soejima.  Ft. Persona 3, Persona 4, P3P, Stella Deus, and several smaller titles.  Incredibly detailed artwork.  $20.

World of Amano  - Art from the famous Final Fantasy artist.  Large book, hard cover, from a great many series' (other than FF) he's worked on. $30.

Xenosaga Art Book - Preorder art book that game out with the game.  Great collection with art by the famous Xgears artists, Kunihiko Tanaka. $10.

Suikoden II Art Book - An actual artbook, all 108 stars, game data, opening art, and character sketches.  I'd be sad to see this go... $50.

Suikoden III Game Guide - There wasn't really a proper artbook for this game.  Damned shame.  Anyways, contains information about the game (in JP), but also contains all 108 stars -- which I'd argue is the most important thing.  Love this one too, be sad if it goes.  Warning, USED... and while all of this is used, this one has cut out triangles in the corner.  PM me on this one.

Legend of Mana Ultimania - Everything there is to know (in JP) about Legend of Mana. Complete with all the artwork for the game! $10.


Tales of Xillia OST - Soundtrack to the upcoming Tales title, great music from Motoi Sakuraba in a classic Tales form.  $15.     Sold! Thank You!


Xenoblade - Popular Wii title with a gigantic world to explore, great characters, and amazing music.  Preorder artbook included!  $30.  Sold! Thank You!

The Last Story - The other popular Wii title finally released Stateside! Artbook and fancy pants book-case thing included!  $30

Kirby's Anniversary Collection! - 6 Kirby games (Kirby GBA, NES, Dreamland 2, Superstar, Dreamland 3, and the Crystal Shards).  $20.  Sold! Thank You!

Legend of Zelda: Oracle Collection - Fan favourite, finally trumping the popular release of Link's awakening. $15 each ($30 for both).  Sold! Thank You!

Legend of Zelda: Gamecube Collector's Edition - Apparently rare!!, which is funny because Gamestop accidentally shipped it to me when I ordered Wind Waker.  No proper case (other than the tacky Gamestop one), and condition is workable, but only good (not mint).  $30.

Dark Cloud 2 - Level 5's hit game that...probably struck American audiences better than Japanese.  Classic dungeon crawler, game and manual in great condition.  $50 (def better than online prices).


Gamecube Controllers -- $15
Wii Classic Controller -- $10
PS3 Controller  -- $20

Nevertheless, it made me hate all things Japanese in the span I watched.  I was fine when I turned it off.... phew.
6204  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: October 25, 2012, 12:32:58 AM
Doing a compariative essay on Naruke's work on Wild Arms (I and III) to Ennio Morricone's scores during his Spaghetti-Western era (Trilogy). This is for my movies and film class.

haha good choice. Aside from two I know, how many pieces you referencing.??

6207  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Soda in NY/ Bad Food ONT! on: October 24, 2012, 12:52:55 AM
So in Canada we have fancy smoke warning labels:

Some can get pretty graphic (a needle in an eye ball, a damaged lung/heart on a platter), and some kinda funny.

So anyways.  Apparently Ontario doctors are trying to make the argument that now unhealthy FOODS should carry a similar label. 


I don't know what to comment on first: a warning label with a fat person on my Mickey D's fries, or that the government would spend on this than balance the budget. 
6208  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward on: October 23, 2012, 07:14:26 PM
Soooo.... anyone get it or are we all waiting a day or so?
6209  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: October 23, 2012, 07:03:55 PM

Sigh.... nah, whatever.  I'm just blue.

I may be selling Game and OST soon if anyone is interested.
6210  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: October 23, 2012, 07:00:12 PM
Ass Creed is always a good bet for good times and fun conspiracy theory.

Vanquish is bad ass, but can be really...hm, tricky?

Dead Space is the shizz

Xcom I haven't seen score less than 80%.  It's apparently really hard, but I'm glad to see it get love.
