My copy still hasn't shipped.  What's up with that, NISA?

I got Shadow of the Colossus and Xillia... I just ordered it online.  I got like 50 game stores close by, but I just didn't wanna bother looking and wondering when it arrives so I paid two bucks more for shipping and I'll just let it come when it does.

I hope you don't need Rorona to get this game.  Given the first game's average reviews, I just kinda avoided it.

I don't know much about this game but it looks fun, the lack of hype that I've seen in the Internet is quite impressive though.

Haha I just don't think you're in the right places.  There are plenty o' Zelda dedicated sites that take care of that.  And now, closer to the release, we're getting a lot more talk.

I'm surprised at the lack of chatter here though.  People not really like Zelda on this forum?  I'm looking forward to it like crazy (the bundle is a super-fucken-sweet deal).  I am really nervous with the wii-mote reliance though.

Haps: off the pick up a package from the post office! :D

I love when a big box arrives for me. :D
Happened yesterday, had some art books.  I danced around the house.

Well, how many video game adaptions are good?

If you count visual novels... then a lot.

Um, yeah, those don't count.  Visual Novels to me is one of those genres that isn't a genre.

I'm talking that not too many are actually memorable, nor try to go beyond the source material.  No one here is really disagreeing with me either, a lot of "not bads", but I want a "great".  I'm not even judging, actually, I've seen a lot of bad ones, I wouldn't mind a good one.

I can't wait, they'll make an announcement that the music albums exceeded the total revenue from game sales.

There's been a second preview post:


I'm not super crazy about the art style, but any Legend of Heroes is good in my book. :)

Cool, thanks! Yeah, the art style didn't seem that great when I first saw it, but it's beginning to grow on me now. Hopefully, if this OAV does well, maybe they'll make a tv series for it. :)

...looks, kinda generic.  If the script is just as boring then this will be a horrible project.  Why am I getting ahead of myself??  Well, how many video game adaptions are good?

ICO isn't as fun as I remembered it.  The combat is frustrating.  Oh well.

Never did care[?] for that aspect of the game much at all. Just came off as unnecessarily tedious.

Yorda...  Yorda...  Bitch is useless!

Just started watching the second season of True Blood last night. The show really pretty much sucks, but Nan seems to like it, so I guess I'll keep watching it with her.

The first disc of season 6 of Doctor Who should show up today.

Aw, you're such a nice hubby.

Is it like one of those shows that you don't like, but like a cartoon, it's entertaining at the very least?
7720  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ys (IV) Celceta, Sea of Trees on: September 29, 2011, 05:59:04 PM
I`m not exactly impressed with the visuals, but I`m still stoked for this! It`s a Falcom game and they (almost)never suck.

Come on, it's a port of an early 90s game, though I don't know whether touched up the visuals from the PC or SNES version or made them from scratch. Presumably they touched up one of the versions? I think it has a certain Suikoden V vibe that I kind of like.

"Touched up" is quite the understatement... And it already can't be a port because of the inclusion of extra characters in addition to Adol. It's a full blown remake, but it may not be that either because Falcom never made their own version of Ys IV. They're finally making their own version of Ys IV, which makes this a lot more exciting than the news of most remakes.

In regards to just the visuals though: They look barely better than PSP... which makes me wonder if this was originally a PSP game before they saw the Vita announcement and decided "fuck it, we'll just port our work up to that."

That, and/or Japanese just suck at graphics nowadays.

great music too. very triumphant

The song when you're kicking ass, especially...
7722  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: The Last Guardian on: September 29, 2011, 11:07:00 AM
OMG, I foresee the tear ducts getting a workout by the end of the game. I'm thinking "beloved dog dies at the end after heroic act" type sadness. This looks incredible.

Haha I like how this was a common reaction, especially given the sort of "grim nature" these games have had thus far.
7723  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: The Last Guardian on: September 29, 2011, 01:57:32 AM

I don't even gonna watch this and is not because of fear of spoilers it's just because I've lost big part of my interest in this game since it was announced... you know by now what is my opinion in waiting more than 3 years for a game. Yeah I know this is Team Ico, but still, I wish they stop doing this.

I just think of what other goods are always being released to make the pain less.

Ah god... the guy at the 30 second mark... his deep, slow, throat-y voice drives me nuts ((nuance)). -____o

Great looking game, and the fact they rendered that creatures feathers (what looks like) separately is an amazing feat.   But I'm inclined to agree: the development has been a stupidly long amount of time.  I'm sure we'll see where all that time went... but by god, I hope this game is longer than the first two titles because of it.
7724  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: TEAM ICO COLLECTION on: September 29, 2011, 12:10:39 AM
I'm honestly surprised you can actually "rent" games anymore.

Do you use an online service?

Haha I was about to say, I wouldn't know where to rent anymore...  How do you anyhow?
7725  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: September 29, 2011, 12:09:43 AM
I don't like killing Colussi :( ...but I must for some dead skirt.

Also, I'm surprised the 3rd guy didn't kill himself as it took me FOREVER to get him

For some reason, I don't think the controls, especially on colossi are the same in this version...

You mean they fixed the camera?

Har d har.  No, no.  For some reason I feel like I'm wobbling on the colossi a lot more than before.

Yeah having never played it I can't say yay or nay to that but the controls aren't perfect. The horse blows ass, and the camera angle tries to be more cinematic than helpful.

The game is awesome though. The thrill of fighting those creatures is awesome and they look amazing and move about wonderfully.

Blame realism in part for the horse.  They deliberately made Agro's controls kinda wonky to be more in tune with "the feel" of a wild horse that doesn't necessarily obey you 100% of the way.  I kinda like it for that.  Same for the camera angle being off-center to see the surrounding field better than 50-50 both ways.  Err, I think it's just one of those "stylistic touches" you deal with. =/
