I still (firmly) believe that PS3-quality remakes of 4, 6, and 7, using the Crystal Tools engine, and slightly revised battle systems, would be among the greatest games ever built. I bet they'd sell well too.

You put too much faith in these old games. The development costs would be enormous. They barely pushed out FF13.

I don't get it... why can't RPG developers find some sort of merry-median between the next-gen quality we see in FF13 and the whole-wide-world exploration we see in Tales of Vesperia?

I downloaded and finished  Katawa Shoujo last night, ended up with lily. 4 hours is not long for a common route. I was expecting much longer given the rant. Some of script could be trimmed a bit, but I do not think it needs to be overhauled.

According to their blog the game is not that far from completion.

If lengthy script is a problem, just end up with the deaf/mute girl.

JOKE.

I can't say I'm a big fan of platforming elements.  Except in VP games, where it doesn't really count (there's no physical threat that isn't a battle).

This looks interesting though, I admire the fast pace and the horrifying (lit.) stage designs.  The "love is over" is just as cool as RE's "You are Dead" haha

If anything I'm just worried this game is going to be too hard.  Mario Galaxy's last few stars were an absolutely migraine-inducing.  But so long as controls are good too (I hated in Mario where I'd do a side jump into a hole when I meant to do something else).

Dear Dice,

Thank you for ruining pierogies for me forever.

The black burning smell that coursed throughout the house ruined them for me too....
Unless I get the "specially" hand-made ones by the old ladies in our local church basement.  I kid you not some old little congregation of ladies who gossip about their daughters/grandaughters.  But these are SO SO good... I think it's because they have about 90 years of experience and the combined age of 20 of these ladies is 2,500.

Space docking is brutal too...

Why is there this insane fandom around Touhou anyways?  Things like this I usually shrug and say "it's Japanese", but now I'm curious.

The music, humor, and characters are all synergetic and fun to enjoy. Fans pretty much created the rest, fan made comics, fan made games, fan made music, remixes, everything.

Sounds like the Hatsune Miku rational.  But I guess that's cool where user-made content has a fan base of it's own.

I'm with Beach1 though, some of the designs aren't that amazing.  I think there is like 10 high school girls, 50 girls with some sort of animal-part ("neko" ears, tails, horns), and a whole bunch of nutty designs.
Some are cute though.

Anyways, Reacttear selling that many is absolutely amazing.

Unfortunately, with the order they're remaking the games, it seems like we might get F5 first.  I wonder what they'd change, but I *guess* I can see it on 3DS.
FF6 on the PS3 would become my favorite before I owned it haha

I wish they hired a better artist...
It seems like you're just finding little details to nit pick at, though.

I'm not nit-picking, I just generally don't like the artist's work in most of their entirety. :P

And yeah, thus far, 3DS version isn't worth it unless they add...like...a lot more than anything we've seen.  The high-res is nice, but that's about it. =\
...Hell, the 3DS isn't worth it if it's going for $300 buckeroos. x(

D-Rider: it is better.  They screw you in these "route" games sometimes.  Meaner is better. =(( 
Maybe that's why I take my anger out on the useless citizens of Renaissance Italy is AssCreed2/B

I'm playing Resonance of Fate after my Star Ocean 4-a-thon.  I don't know why, but I suck at this game compared to the last time I played, it feels.  Getting rare items in this game sucks too.  Shooting off parts is pretty stressful when you have a "power gauge" that runs out. 

Nevertheless, for such a "minimal" title, where the longest cutscene is...maybe 5 minutes (if that), the character chemistry is undeniable and strong.  Leanne is one of the prettiest game models I've seen and she's a lovely character to boot.

Oh, speaking of Star Ocean 4, I snapped an awesome picture of it's iteration of Santa.  I adore the olde attire and euro moustache.


...Surprisingly detailed face, something you'd miss unless you actively try to view it, sadly.
But ill-arious nonetheless. =D

That Top Secret recipes thing is something I always wanted to get into. A couple of years ago a late night show i listen to on 720am had one of the lab chefs on from top secret.

We do a lot of cooking and we try and do a variety of methods. I like to think I'm pretty good but if it's not certain things I kind of move ponderously and slow. Doing stir fry and grillin is my favorite.

My +1 actually cooks the steak better than I and is a whiz w/ soups.


To keep this relevant to the topic, I love watching cooking shows. I think at least 50% of the tv I watch is cooking related.

Argh, I wish my guy liked Soups.... they're one of my favorite things on earth, the ultimate form of combining flavour in a more low-fat method (but I love chunks of chicken or any meat in it).  

Unfortunately, I've just started my cooking trials, I made an amazing spinach, cheese, and artichoke dip the other day for some friends. =)

I'm trying to get better at pasta dishes (of all things, I'm at that "I feel like something is missing" phase).  But I'm a pro at meats and I make a potato (of whatever variety, baked, mashed, roast, mister potato) unlike you've ever eaten.

I've always had a soft spot when movies show food or some sort of delicious cuisine.
For some reason, even when it's food I recognize, I always feel like the food in flicks always tastes different and amazing to how I'd imagine.

I could be an asshole and say that I hope it won't have crashes, but I'll just say that I'll probably skip this, even though I had a great time with the DS game. Not really sure what your problem with the artist is, Dice. The game might not have had the best character designs ever, but there was nothing wrong with them in my opinion (other than the girl's, can't remember her name, unproportionately large breasts, and that's not even necessarily a bad thing either...).

Personal preference I suppose... hell, some people probably like the retarded hairdo's on Yu-Gi-Oh characters.
I just think the style looks unrefined and even unprofessional at times.  

She's bloody crosseyed, and her chin could probably stab someone.

Everyone looks nuts with relatively tiny iris' (a common way to depict more "crazy" or surprised emotions in anime's at least), the extra dark lines around the eye don't help.  The artist tried to be unique at times, but still falls to common anime stereotypes or just bizarre designs in general (the hair piece falls over the singer-chicks face is annoying to look at [brush it off!!], Yuzu has utters, and Amane's sleeve connects under her legs to the other sleeve - it just looks stupid).  Your "main buddy" looks like a cross digimon-hero and Junpei, and the main hero looks like a less cartoony Laharl from Disgaea (those antenna-hairs don't do a thing for me).  Naoya is wearing a kimono with "digital" looking numbers all over it.

And really??  The COMP looks like a DS?  Very creative...

Some of the portrait emotions look weird too...
I just don't find this artist to be all that professional.  The really anime style clashes with whatever more realistic qualities the persona have themselves.

I kinda expected better from Atlus.

I can't tell if Dice is being ironic with that post :P

Let's just say I am and we all find me amusing.  Ha ha ha ha. =|

I have always hated "book controversies". 
It's as simple as "if a book offends you, don't read it".

I was especially perplexed by the To Kill a Mockingbird case since Atticus is actually defending a black fella...
