You keep trying to convince.  It's just darling. 

FACT: Yoda swings a barbarian sword and wears furry underwear and sports his hair long.  He goes off to defeat trolls and dragons, and Tolkien-folk.

There's a chance they'll rename it.

I think that's wishful thinking. Nintendo formally christained the console last E3. Nintendo has never gone back on a console name after it has been formally announced. Not to mention, there's no reason to, the name has not been met with critical disapproval. In fact, the response has been much more neutral than that of the "Vita". I don't think there's any reason to believe it will be named anything different. Now, they did say that the LOOK of it will likely be different then the prototype they demoed, maybe you're confusing those things.

It's currently scheduled for release in Q2-Q3, which means April - September. Original figures suggested closer to April, but the fact that we've heard so little makes me think that we'll probably see it towards the end of that window.

After all, the last handheld from Nintendo is called 3DS. Way to confused your consumers... sometimes I wonder how people that is not into video games can get a clue at all the stuff that is sold to them with funny names.
How is 3DS confusing? it's a 3D, Dual Screen system, makes sense to me. This is seriously the first time I've ever heard anyone say they were confused about the naming. And even if you do live in a hole and don't understand what the name means... how many thousands of best selling products from Cars to Laundry Detergents are named things like "XT-3025", and have no trouble generating sales. In comparison of a lot of branding "3DS" is pretty simple, and makes complete sense if you take half a second to think about it. "Wii-U", maybe a little less so, but Nintendo is going for cute, and "Wii-U" is kinda cute.

Public outcry against the name "Wii" has probably never been worse, yet it's the best selling console of the generation, adding a "U" onto the end of it isn't going to cause mass confusion.

Working at EBGames/Gamestop... yes, people DO get confused. Parents and small kids (minorities here) are the major offenders. 


yeah i havent seen anyone get confused over the name either honestly

You refused to admit AFD was April Fool's Day.  :P

I never understood why Capcom never put X on some of their newer fighting games. Sure, they did put Zero and Volnutt on Tatsunoko but a ton of people wanted X too. Heck, He isn't even in UMvC3.

But this... is both great and terrible.

I originally assumed it was to hold him back for DLC or for the next version (if it ever happened) to drive sales for those, but now I'm not so sure.

I always found it was the "fondness" for classic Megaman that kept it from moving forward that way.  Shame, I agree.

I love the twisted "dark mothergoose" style of storytelling.  I'd love to play. :D

You argument is compelling....

The romance was sappy, but I, like a tool, liked it... D:

The twists are often, the music catchy... but like a tumor.

And things get pretty stupid/weird by the end...

But man... I'd *kill* for another battle system like Grandia's.  I love the combination of active and wait battle system, and how that weird little gap between setting an action and actually doing it be so important to strategy!
6759  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: January 31, 2012, 09:04:58 PM
No, Xenoblade is just that good. (j)RPGs are still dead as a whole, though.

I will take that as a joke post.........otherwise a vein in my head might pop

Few and far between then...

Your gamer card is dead... D:

Lots a good sheet here and there.  

Where ya been?  Sports games??  CoD?? :D
6761  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: January 31, 2012, 03:29:46 PM
Sounds like the games I'm getting in the next few months will last me over a year. x_X

Yay?  RPGs are back??

Capcom can eat my ass for what they did to mega man. I'll play the other games like resident evil and such, but what they did with him in sfxt really has me questioning that purchase now.

Notice how his name, in Japanese, is "megaman", not "rockman". :P
Obvious jab.  I think it's funny, but obviously a gimmick to lure sales.  Funny how it's working both ways with fans.

Work at 8, too much caffeine. Fuck it, gonna drink tap water and listen to The Breeders.

I can't even tell you how many times I've "detoxed" that same way since university  ...sans Breeders, though.

999.

I'm using an "Ending Flowchart" FAQ for so I can make the most of the endings. 
Got a "bad end"....and how!!

Poor Snake and all... but Fucking Clover went nuts with a goddamned axe!!  I'm sad it ended as soon as Junpei was gone, I would have loved to see what happened to Lo and Ace.

Awesome you can fast forward text in NG+. x(

I get setting the atmosphere of a scene, but some of the emotional chatter goes on way too long.
"Leave me behind"
"No!!"
"You must"
"No!"

"Its awkwardness is meant to suggest the capacity of adaptation brought by the modularity of the medium we use that voids any application of definition of specificity to the spaces the works co-habit —and therefore plasticises part of the way the work is read by the viewer."


I hate when people write like that:

The medium of the "art" lacks specificity and is modular in nature, plasticiZing (or changing ) the way the piece of shit is interpreted.

Is sort of my take

That's about the gist of what my mum and I could piece together after a few slow re-readings heh.

We think we also understood that it was hard to really finalize any sort of "end-meaning", I think (I may be off)


(Yeah, I hate these assholes that write like this.... why?  why why why why why???)
