Oh, dunno if anyone's noticed, website was updated with a "???" section.  My guess is it will be an "Answers" section like the first game got.

Magnificent Seven is on TV. Now I wanna play Red Dead.

Also, booked my ticket for the Philippines yesterday. Really looking forward to going to some whorehouses again 


Yeaah, older buddy of mine was going to Thailand... I had to ask the "important question" on that one.

Haha that stunned me a bit too, but the goofy face on young Sigma when he saw he had one eye and two robo arms kinda subverted it.  I loved that whole cutscene; I loved having just a PILE of epilogues to go through. Naw, I think my nightmare fuel was in Clover's ending.. Her 999 one did it too, but VLR's did it because you see *everyone* either dead from suicide or perhaps being killed.  It was really late when Phi started to talk 2x the speed in the Security Office, that was out of left field and scared me.

I was still disappointed for such a heavily voiced game and for a well-acted game, Sigma had no voice.  Spoiler be damned, if he didn't realize he had a missing eye, couldn't they have just given him a young voice till he finds out he's 70?  A little wave of fiction-magic could have handled that, like his young voice "was all in his head" or some shit.  I just found it kinda distracting that only *he* had no voice...  and I have no qualms with listening to Troy Baker for all 40 hours of gameplay.

I hated Quark too.  I guess because he contributed so little, being unconscious more often than not; but I'm glad he was there for Tenmyouji when he was still pining for Akane.  ...I actually expected some twisted darkside from him, like when Dio accused him of hitting Betray...but nada.  Which reminds me, seems Akane still cares for Tenmyouji, which is cute in an old-people way.

Akane was great though.  I'm glad that passed her plans for revenge against the original Nonary game creators she's trying to "save the world" now.  She made for a lovely 20-something-year-old too.

Tenmyouji I did have a feeling of... but I loved his response when you get to the "Q" door.

Alice was definitely underwhelming... Clover too, to some extent.  I agree with the voice, Wendee Lee's voice also just annoys me these days.  With both girls (more so Alice) as super secret agents, I hoped for more out of them -- but it sounds like they'll be back for Round 3.

Dio was a great shit.  Definitely curious about the identity of Brother, and if the next title is dealing with a similar morphogenetic-fielder, I'm curious what kind of shit storm that will brew up.

I think Luna has actually become the fan favorite.  She has not an evil thought in her (aside from the extremely ambiguous "game over" en route to her ending where she takes Quark and abandons you and Phi for whatever reason).  MILKEVOLI was a cute password too [read it backwords].  She was always trustworthy, and could make you feel like hell for betraying her.

I think the series knows its popularity to the extent that it *feels* like a lot of this is being set up for ZE3.  Some books seem to do this too.  The first book wraps up pretty nicely, but when there's demand for more, a sequel has a plot that relates to its "threequel".  I'm especially curious in regards to the Mars mission and, if it's where Rad-9 initially comes from, how many more creepy ass ending will happen from that.  Definitely looking forward to who K might be, I liked him a lot.

In regards to Nona: I guess she became a conspirator?  Didn't Clover say something to that effect most of the Nonary-1 players had joined Brother?  I  liked the Crew Quarters easter egg (the belly button moon decor), but I'm sad that Lotus, Seven, and Snake were missing completely.

GameFaqs's forums for the game have been really good about addressing extra questions and theories

Fully beat Resident Evil 6's story mode.

Ada's chapter was interesting.  I found it got easier with every level -- the submarine at the beginning sucked some serious ass and I was playing on 'amateur' (I didn't get killed, you really don't on that difficulty, but it takes a LOT of resources anyways, and the time parts within the sub are pretty unforgiving if you take your time even a small bit).  I'm mixed on a lot of the rehashing of certain levels, but I guess that can't really be helped.  The final chapter was a but of a lame finale, but fun nonetheless to...

Use the 'chopper for about 90% of it....  GET INTO THA CHOPPA

Great fucking game.  Ta hell with all the reviews, it was a lot of fun and the co-op experience is definitely one of the best (especially great for those who are sick of co-op FPS').  The story, even if really campy and filled with American balls-to-the-wall action and "wit", was still pretty well done, and I loved the multi-campaign approach.  I really don't think Capcom can ignore this type of game style in the future.  Can't wait for the next Res....

...secret ending seems to clearly spell out that Jake will be getting his own spin-off or definitely be in the 7th game.  Yay!

I definitely enjoyed the puzzle-solving aspects, be great if they put more of that in this title...

Also Playing Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracles.

I *love* the puzzles, but a lot of the story elements are really tiring and tedious.  And while I love Layton, between he, Luke, and sort-of newcomer Emmy, there's really, really little character variety among them.  They're pretty lax, but serious about puzzles, and dandy about everything else.  I always respect Tales games in comparison who, say they're looking at a painting, one character will love it, one will hate it, one won't get it, etc...  Layton folk: "looks amazing!", "I should come to galleries more!", "I'd love that in my house!".  Occasional humour gets put in, but I'm in it mostly for the puzzles I think (the story this time around is kinda predictable...).
The 3D transition is actually brilliant.  I was sad the French animation was done away with, but the models are fantastic and well animated.  And the music is catchy and beautifully melodic (I'm happy with the new puzzle song too!). 
Good game. :)

I was out hanging Christmas lights yesterday. I SO didn't feel like doing it, and really didn't get much done. I'm not sure if I would do this anymore if not for my wife and son. I would, at least, do something much more subdued and different. The whole Christmas thing really doesn't do it for me anymore.

My dad's gotten sick of it as we grow up, now we just put a sort of glowy star over our outside lamp.  I think it's enough.  I do like Christmas lights, but I don't doubt they're nothing short of a pain in the ass and an extra charge on the elec. bill.

On a somewhat related note: I kinda wanna buy some of those smaller Christmas lights, the ones you usually put on the trees, just to decorate my bedroom when I'm watching a movie or something.

Anywho.  Had a big fight with my brother yesterday.  I swear, I'd have an easier time making plans with the freaking US President.  We keep making plans to hang out, only for him to tell me *twelve hours later* why he can't (or obviously by then, why he couldn't).  I wouldn't complain, but this happens 90% of the time.

On a brighter note, I got 80's on all my mid-terms! ....70's on the papers, butt fuck it, 5 years in post-secondary, I've stopped caring as much.

I just realized a plot point that bothered me...

How the fuck did Sigma not realize he was seeing only out of one eye?

Certain plot parts I was reviewing the other day still kinda give me the chills.

That's easy enough:
It's clearly a cyborg eye-thing, and he perhaps perfected emulating the sight a normal eye would have.

This does not, however, eliminate the question of why he couldn't notice that /he couldn't blink./ Maybe
he figured out how to trick the brain into thinking he was blinking both.

Reasons like that make me love fiction. 

"But isn't that impossible?"

"Naw, just invent the 'whatever device' and we're good!"

I *NEED* like 75% of these items... 10% i don't really get, but.... cool.

I'm in love with the editing decisions on that...

"To fight the Demon King.....  DEMON KING".

I can't wait for reviews with this game.  But otherwise, I liked seeing the behind the scenes, I always thought mo-cap tech was really cool.

Been ODing on Mass Effect 3 multiplayer but grabbed Black Ops 2 today.

So hey. If anyone has it on 360...

Suck it. You never once played MW3 w/ me.
I didn't play MW3 with anyone actually. I never once touched the multiplayer, I got about halfway through the campaign before abandoning it for Mass Effect. So no, YOU suck it.

Yeaaah.  I think most people abandoned MW3.  I think most abandoned it and went back a year and just re-bought Black Ops 1 again.

Akanbe, I'm adding yo butt on PSN!  Maybe one day we can waste some time on some game. :P

Dear god $550 AND that silly design on it...

This is why I rarely shop on Play Asia.  Or, at the very least, it's good to fish around the net.
And for goodness sake --- I like the color, I bloody hate that phallic-nosed lantern bitch on it.

Anyways.  I'm eating pizza pockets, two of them.  A good 500 calories.  Wii U is out today, and I need energy before i deal with people at work.
Yesterday I had *three* customers who I told couldn't do an exchange because they opened their games (and they didn't like them).  But, manager comes around says to do it anyways, because we bend over to any customer needs even when they're wrong... I can't help but wonder what the point of a return policy is.
6853  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: What's with those Cheap Beats headphones? on: November 18, 2012, 11:35:23 AM

I've been eying these; I also think spending $300 on Beats is retarded (especially when Dre is probably walking away with mad royalties for each pair).

I'm getting sick of the apple ear buds, they hurt after a while.

The PEC room is where it crashed. I knew I wasn't supposed to save in the Puzzle Rooms going in because of the glitch, but I didn't realise the PEC room was just seriously bugged in general. How frustrating.

I had a freeze in the PEC room, so I think you and I had the same problem (my freezes dealt with the item screen both times).  However, PEC room's notoriety (and one other I forgot) comes from the fact that if you save there, your *save crashes* (in other words, you're starting a new game).
Apparently Aksys is looking into it, but it might be too little too late by the time something is done.

Speaking of gaming fuck ups:  Resident Evil 6 apparently has its own troubles when it comes to co-op difficulty; it takes the campaign leader's difficulty, but doesn't "share" it with whoever joins your game (so 1p can play on Hard, while 2p is stuck on Normal).  There's a work around it, but I just wonder what about it was a good idea...
I feel a bit better about this though, seeing as how I was typically getting bruised and beaten down while Yodes was walking away scratch free -- I thought I sucked ass at the game.... :D
6855  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: November 18, 2012, 02:33:03 AM
Why don't I save more. Virtues Last Reward crashed on me, and so I have to play through the scenes I just saw again, but without the skip feature. Ugh.

More brutal than the cutscenes is the fucking "map walking" segments that you can hardly skip.

Yeah, best advice for that: save often, and never in a puzzle room, especially not the PEC room.
