2581  Media / The Soundroom / Best Indian (Tamil) Song in awhile... on: November 18, 2006, 02:09:01 AM
Now, everyone heard of Daler Mhendi's "Tunak Tunak Tun."

Ladies and gentlement, have you seen Prabhu Deva's "Kalluri Vaanil"? If not, you need to.


The bits of research I've done on Indian pop, particularly that from this guy's publisher (Ayngaran), this is apparently pretty typical stuff. Male/female duo doing crazy dances and singing crazy stuff to a hyped up beat.


I just think there's something special behind it that goes beyond that shallowness of pop culture. Maybe I'm just looking for something that's not there, but to me it's a quick look at how mezmerizing something foreign can be.

Watch it.

"Bastien, PLEASE! Give me a new name!"

I can't, I just can't do it!


Yeah, sell the tickets to the show, and buy yourself the Neverending Story DVD instead. :P

The interviewers at Sega-16 were clearly biased (of course they would be, they're a Sega fansite). But I really enjoyed that interview. Thanks for the link!

2584  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Monster Kingdom announced for the US. on: November 16, 2006, 05:57:58 PM
What I am *really* waiting for is a full soundtrack release. It hasn't happened in Japan: maybe it'll be a uS exclusive with Atlus! :)


PS - this will be the first good PSP RPG (besides...like...Lenneth).

Damn, you beat me to it. I wanted to get a pink one too. :P

Great minds think alike.

And Mark, sorry for derailing your whole topic. I too hate the way games get marketed...but in all fairness, games based on "Bratz" and "That's So Raven" deserve terrible marketing. Let's hope they fail.

A lot of people buy into the pink is for girls thing just like blue is for boys.

I mean that's almost as bad as Nintendo releasing a PINK DS. Geez, what the hell were they thinking?


last Friday, for my 23rd birthday, my wife purchased a Coral Pink DS Lite. For me.

I <3 it more than you could possibly imagine.

THAT's what they were thinking, oh friendly Masamune. They were thinking of little ol' Ramza.


PS - Seriously, the "coral pink" DS is a lot more about style than girly-fun-times IMO.

Yeah, Quintet was a part of Granstream Saga, a crappy PS1 RPG.

And Quintet did the artwork for the over-400 items in Atelier Iris ~Eternal Mana~. They still exist, but perhaps in name only.

I'd like to see them make a return with a fourth game in the Soul Blazer series, with that sort of similar gameplay. Perhaps a DS title?

well, Charlie wants his kidney back and he's not getting it. Life's tough. :P

2589  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Soulblazer. on: November 10, 2006, 05:30:52 PM
Of the SoulBlazer trilogy from Quintet, I vote Terranigma as THE best.

SO good.

2590  The Rest / General Discussions / A MAGICAL LEOPLEURADON! on: November 10, 2006, 05:22:38 PM

I'd hope after the amount of time it's existed that at least some of you have seen this excellent piece of crazy crap.


2591  The Rest / General Discussions / Pong creator knocks PS3 strategy on: November 09, 2006, 04:06:50 AM
I wonder if Sony will fail this time around with PS3. To me it's doubtful, simply because they have essentially "won" the last two rounds with PS and PS2. Of course, Nintendo "won" with NES and SNES and then hit hard times with N64.

And in the handheld market, what happened before N64? Virtual Boy. And what happened right before PS3? PSP.

Coincidence? ...
you decide.

I think that Wii will do well, as Nintendo has always managed to get by and be innovative. If it's a question of 360 vs PS3, it could be that 360 actually wins. The 3rd party support in Japan is a good sign for Microsoft, as they didn't have that AT ALL last go-around.

2592  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Whats next after DQ8 on: November 08, 2006, 03:35:21 AM
I recommend both Atelier Iris games.

And if you want a challenging title, Baten Kaitos Origins was a recent surprise for me.

2593  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Anyone playing Baten Kaitos Origins? on: November 08, 2006, 03:32:42 AM
Grand Master, to answer your question:

Mira is there. You just don't visit it because it's apparently cloaked in invisibility. When Sagi and co. reach the ground world (where everyone where's those silly masks), they discover that the fifth of the five islands IS Mira, and that Hassaleh isn't one of the original five. The real question is: how does Hassaleh not exist in the original?

Actually, the team technically does go to Mira. Kind of. Beat the game and find out.

I've never touched the stuff and never will, but this story is so depressing to me. I think it's terrible that the head of the quote "drug ring" is facing ten years in prison. When the hell will our country just get over the fact that lots of people choose to smoke marijuana and make the stuff legal?

2595  The Rest / General Discussions / Itagaki on trial for sexual harrassment on: November 07, 2006, 05:19:38 PM
Hahahaha! (I mean, not laughing at the poor woman, but at the DoA creator).

ending up with a similar run-in at a hotel during E3 last year.

Scandal in LA!

Seriously, it's no surprise. Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball --- sexual harrassment. Yeah, it's like 2 and 2.

Great story.
