Man these guys gotta be careful, he'll probably get some heat over this.  But quite frankly it seems the USA and JPN developers love going to each others necks for their differences anyways.  Hard to compare, they're just very different to begin with.

Kingdom Hearts, sure that IS gibberish.  And yeah, you get your examples of other titles that are just as bad (Eternal Sonata, "sci-fi" RPG attempts, Tales' theme focus turning to pink platitude platters).  But there are a few that definitely are more creative (I think that's the key work here; Halo and Gears are practically the same goddamn concept of fighting bullshit in space; and just about ANY American or otherwise attempts on Fantasy have trouble venturing outside of "Tolkien-esque Fantasy").  I admire Dead Rising and Lolipop chainsaw for being more satirical with the goddamn zombie craze here (clearly; Japanese are to Mechas as Americans are to Zombies).  Eugh, whatever.   I'm sick of this discussion, I'm sure someone else will say it better (Ashton?).

Yodes: something tells me the ending of Ass Creed 3 is going to be the new Mass Effect 3 ending.  But I agree, I do think AssCreed is a really unique installment to story telling -- I think the concept itself was a big enough draw for a lot of people, it's goddamn awesome. And while I do love Japanese gaming, your probably right, it will be better than any other J-game this year.

This makes me FURious.
But anyways.... yeah.... this is what they got?  To think MML3 data is just lying around getting digi-dust on it.
Time to get OVER Megaman, eh?

I'm out of puns for now.

Wild Armor: Mark Ruff look = hellayeah. 

Yodes: love pooch pooch.

Are you implying that Impa isn't female, because I'm pretty sure she had no interest in Link's Master Sword (if you know what I mean). Also the only reason why I don't outright hate Ilia's late game quest is because
Code:
the spaghetti western shootout was actually pretty cool.

I love when the Zelda series whips out some accoustic guitar -- good things happen.

....oh, and no, Impa is a man. I mean.... I get muscles on women... but that face...

Which reminds me, I know that boobs in games have never looked better.... but it was still hilarious when old school 3D boobs looked like " < < "

They better give me my Wander and fighting-on-the-back-of-a-colossus stage. Come on...make this happen...would be an amazing and mind blowing stage.

Auuughhh.... this game has so much potential.....
6352  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: August 15, 2012, 04:33:25 PM
Is it just me, or does Twilight Princess have too many characters?  Seriously, I've only beaten the second big dungeon, and we already have almost two dozen NPCs with names and personalities, including some children that Link's had to rescue three or four times.  I... kinda don't like this.  I would prefer to be thrown into the action with less prompting and dialog.  I want Zelda to be... more like Dark Souls and less like Dragon Age.  

Unfortunately it'll get much worse. At least the rate at which they're introduced will taper off by the time you hit the fourth dungeon and most of the characters up until that point will become irrelevant as well. Malo, Ilya, and the cowardly kid's dad are the big exceptions and even then two of them have some decent payouts by the end (though the other is a lot more WTF by the end).

Whine about that all you want, personally, I hated the fact that every *female* Sage (+Malon) in Ocarina of Time sounded like they wanted to fuck Link.

Ilia became useless, but so what -- she was goddamn ugly and annoying. CLearly a future soccer mom.

The only thing I have going for me in life is my job. I hate my job. If I go to sleep, nothing can hurt me when I'm asleep, but sleeping too much just shortens the time between me not being at work and me being at work.
Bold = relevant to my life. Everyone gets on my case about getting more sleep. I like a good snooze as much as the next person, but I hate that it brings the next morning about so quickly. Yay! I get to waste another 10 hours of my life pretending to enjoy my job, and staring out the window! I don't HATE my job, but it bothers me how much time we spend doing them, when there are such better things to be doing.
Plus, if I didn't stay up late, I'd have no time for games, movie, reading, etc. So I can be well rested but grumpy because I have no time for entertainment, or I can be tired and enjoy myself for awhile. Most nights I choose the latter.


Both of these are quoted for truth. After awhile work really does become such a grind. To the point where you really feel like its all you ever do. I often have so much I want to do with my free time that I get overwhelmed and don't use it correctly.

I think overall human well-being would be boosted by 50% if the work week was only 4 days a week.  Hell, even if we worked an extra hour or so on the remaining 4 days.

Xenogears - I'm personally not a big fan of Xenogears as a game.  There's way too much tedious exposition, but this is one that's looked at as a necessity.

This game is killing me just because it's...sort of awkward to play.  Hell, I remember thinking this back then too.  It's easy enough to play, sit with it for a couple of hours and habituate to it (the same way I got used to FF7's.... "origami" graphics and lack of analog), but for some reason XG annoys me.  I really wanna do it for the story though.
6355  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Super Smash Bros. Namdai on: August 15, 2012, 11:09:16 AM
Some 13 odd Tales titles out there, I swear if they don't put Cless, Asbel, one of the other 50 something tales heroes or heroines in it, I wil fucking shit a power pellet.

Agreed....AGREED!! At the very least, Sophie! I mean, her move set would be so easy to throw into a Smash Bros.

I don't think they'd include a character from any Sony-exclusive released title.  Which gives us the handhelds (Inno and <3's), Symphonia, Graces, and Phantasia, I believe. So Sophie could be in there.
6356  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FINALLY!! on: August 15, 2012, 02:25:40 AM
Suikoden
Grandia
Xenogears
Wild Arms
Chrono Cross
Legend of Mana
Threads of Fate

Good start.

Still no Suiko II. 
But definitely a good start.

If only the Vita were cheaper... le sigh.
6357  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Sony's Smash Bros. on: August 15, 2012, 12:56:31 AM
Still need a loooot more in there for me to be interested. Essentially, a roster that can make you forget that this is such a blatant Smash Bros clone and like "Holy fuck ______ is in it!!!!"
Some Lara Croft would be dandy (I'm surprised no mention on that one), Soul Reaver dude (Kane, Cain, Kain? Eugh, whatevs), at least one FF wankwad, hell, get Joel in there to promote Last of Us.  I'm surprised Capcom isn't making a deal for some extra pesos to get Ryu in there or anyone.

Today's hot new trend! All the craze! All the hepcats are doing it! ...

ASSHOLE TATTOOS

NSFW video here.

http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/pulp/2012/08/florida_psychic_predicts_new_a.php

That chick is absolutely insane. Bent over, in public, almost completely naked, talking like a lunatic all fucked up on who knows what, and getting her chocolate starfish scribbled on by some dude.


Hey I wonder if Klyde has done any  ASSHOLE TATTOOS

Oh man that woman.... I think she is scarier than the fact she has a bunghole tattoo.

http://www.avclub.com/articles/daniel-tosh-rushing-to-find-some-jokes-that-arent,82455/
I totally missed this when it happened. Interesting?
+ I get a woman standing up in defense of what she believes in
+ Dan Tosh "going on with the show" in spite of an unnatural hiccup
- The woman not taking a joke while attending a "comedy show"
- Dan's tasteless and almost pointless "rebuttle", but more than that, bidding the audience to join was just stupid.
= Trying to cover the situation and help make things better, Dan Tosh decided to edit the first episode of his upcoming TV show to get rid of the rape jokes in it, and in a rush as well.... this begs the question; how much of the first episode was centered around rape? 

I like this since brings up all them questions about "what's funny" and "when" that always hits a blurred line.
6359  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / DVD selling? on: August 14, 2012, 09:14:37 PM
What y'all think??  Should I sell DVDs here or is there really even a market for it?? x)
Once upon a time ago, I worked at Blockbuster and got quite the collection (so including Mean Girls, excluding all the other crap Lindsey Lohan has done).

I'd charge super cheap too.  But I just wonder if peeps here are even interested.

Got a new couch. Is a comfy couch the most important item in a house?

There are two things worth spending good money on in the house.

1) a nice couch with good cushions that don't develop butt dimples right away
2) mattress.

I'll just leave this on a semi-related note.
