My JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test, a standardized test by the Japanese government) certification arrived today.  Now I have an official piece of paper that says I know Japanese.  I took the N3 test, which is just intermediate level but it was my first time taking it and I wanted something I was confident I would pass.  Planning on taking N2 this year (test is only offered once a year...).

Kevadu wanna be my BFFFF and go to Japan with me as my translator-slash-friendbuddy?

Consider them things, love ya, xoxo

The voice over in that video for the NISA US release made me cringe. Soooo cheesy.

You know, I didn't actually watch the video when I posted it...you got me curious.  Wow, that was horrible...

Omg..... haaha.... yikes.  Not helping sell it.

Was this game badly received in Japan? Because from the looks alone it does seem pretty nice but I admit I haven't seen much besides some videos where most of them were an anime cutscene and very little gameplay.

I've read on multiple sites that it was nominated for Japan's "worst game of the year" award.  I'm not sure the original source, but that rumor seems rather widespread.

Normally I stick my nose out of things like ratings, especially if it's a mixed review -- I like to think some will like it, some won't.  Hell, some people HATE games that are otherwise unanimously loved.  I stick my nose out of it UNLESS a game is unanimously hated, then I feel I have a moral obligation to warn people from spending fifty bucks on something most of the world has tried and hated.

^^ The movie was weird, and I found in the end, it wasn't terribly memorable.  It was quiet, and a lot I felt almost unnecessary (I didn't really get the B plot with her editor and Arnau  -- I was working on a project, so maybe I might have missed the bigger movie behind their pot and the film's overall theme and meaning, so....maybe it's my bad).  Aubrey is an interesting actress, a good aura like you said, somewhat naturally melancholic too almost (or at the very least, typecasted as such between Scott Pilgrim, Parks and Rec, and Funny People).

Curious though:
Code:
I don't know if I was reading it wrong and since they don't really answer it, do you think the reason Kristen Bell was alive and well was because Kenneth was able to save her??  I read it that way, the movie tries to make him look whacky, but I did think that he had saved her but chose to stay with Darius instead.

I have pinpointed why I dislike the animations in this game. They are not awesome like the 2D animations from the GBA games. Sad.

Yeah, the flashy and over the top animations of the 2D GBA games were awesome. Now we just get generic slashes and pokes most of the time. I still like the new graphics though (the feet thing never really bothered me).

2....D...???  Geez!  Bygone age!! :P

Naw, I'm kidding.  I'm also sad that Capcom is all hot shit now so we'll never see their amazing 2D artwork ever again.

I do like the 2D in GBA fire emblem, but I do like when a pegasus knight charges head first at an enemy when another unit follows up with a spell or arrow to their ass.  I think it's cool you can change how you view the battle straight on, dynamic, or even in a first person view too.

Question.

As hardware gets more powerful, there's greater pressure on developers to fully utilize that hardware. However, to do this, the number of manhours spent on a given project is going to increase.


My theory on next-gen games is actually based on this.  I think the Wii U, Vita, and 3DS will especially pick up the pace for projects that just don't have the kind of money and manpower.

I loved her in Just Friends, one of few memorable aspects of that film.

Also, I like her better than http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrVoJgQ7u8w who I feel I need to bring up.

Jesus what a waste of time that was. They would have been better served to ride the hype and speculation train so they'd actually have a REAL reveal at E3. I mean, if the CEO and the physical console couldn't even make an appearance, what the hell does that give you? We got to stare at a controller we've all seen leaked shots of for weeks... yay. If they don't manage to nail a sweet spot on the price point, they're screwed. Durango is coming, as is the Steam Box and Apple will probably enter the home console market via Apple TV sooner rather than later, plus we have the Ouya too. The field is going to be super crowded and Sony doesn't have the brand loyalty it commanded with the PS and PS2 anymore. Let's see if they manage to flub yet another console launch... third times the charm.

Specs?  Features?  Controls?  Games?  Do these things mean nothing to you?  The thing I care about least is what the friggin box looks like...

I hope it's a floating spherical glass ball that makes a rave light show when you boot it up.  It then asks how you are and tells you that you're pretty.

Watching Airplane! again.  Awesome as always, but man, Julie Hagerty is wayyyy too skinny.  She's like bones with skin wrapped around them.

But she's so sweet.

I love that movie.  My boyfriend was skeptical, but got excited when he saw an NBA Legend pop in (he's a sports buff).

I don't know if it was just bad english but the one square guy said something that sounded like "i'm your sister's older brother" or some shit.

Dice back me up

I thought he said he was married to his sister.

You can tell he was more business than nerd though -- he failed his joke then quickly moved on instead of waiting for the tumbleweed.

I also loved the audience Blizz-tards clapping as soon as a rep came on -- I wonder how rock hard their nipples got.

They all had vague promises.

However, I do think the system itself has a lot of promise.... just maybe not for lower-priority developers/brands. =/
lol, I wonder what a NIS game will look like on the PS4. :P

"New FF display at E3.... Sayonara!"
That's brand power for ya...

I hate how much they say without actually saying anything.

"This system works well, it's interactive, and plays great -- you will love it!"... umok.

Can anyone else maybe see THe Last Guardian as part of the PS4 starting lineup?  Not shown here (hopefully E3).  I get this vibe, dunno why.
