It doesn't seem right that the new Neptunia is for PS3, ought to be for PSP. Still excited for it though... even though I don't on a PS3...

If I were to hazard a guess it's probably because their development team is PS3 specialized; having done virtually all of their joint ventures on that console. To shift to PSP means they'd have to scrap most of what they've learned and make the project completely from scratch. Considering the IF/CH/NISA/Gust team gets gradually better with each game I'd rather have them keep improving on one console than start over and give us another Cross Edge.

Wait a second...Kenji Inafune is involved in promoting the sequel? So the grandfather of Megaman cuts involvement with the project he's been wanting to do for over a decade and is now involved in Neptune mk-II? What...the...*foghorn*?

I don't know if that means Neptune mk-II is just that good in concept or if MML3 is already that bad.

Edit: Also; screw you Japan. Screw you and your social trend for getting protagonists as naked as possible due as part of the destructible clothing trend. Screw you for using any excuse at all to litter your games with younger and younger females in skimpier and skimpier outfits. *just saw the Artwork gallery* It was barely justifiable in AT3; here there's just no excuse period. XP

Apologies for the over the top rant but...dammit Japan...

I would say this is why the Japanese can't have nice things but American filmmakers have been doing that as a selling point for a while now so...*sigh* Humanity.

Sadly the gaming industry doesn't often take the "popular" route when it's a good thing in the fan's eyes. XD Heck look at how popular the idea of a FF7 remake is and how long SE have been squashing that idea.

It's been so long that I can't remember exactly when; but didn't the creator say shortly after P4 hit that he wouldn't be making any new Persona games for a while? I honestly wouldn't be expecting any til the PS3 hits about the same life cycle the PS2 did between P3:FES and P4. If not outright passing it by til the next generation.
1071  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Persona 4 anime? on: April 14, 2011, 11:33:57 PM
I really have no hopes for this and am rather miffed this is what they chose to do with P4. (P3 gets remade twice and all P4 gets is a "Oh yeah; you still exist. Have an animated adaptation instead of any new material across any medium.") XP Until I find a show that proves me wrong I really have no faith in present-day Japanese ability to tell a proper story through the anime medium without botching it up horribly somehow. And if Sakura Wars New York NY has taught me anything it's that the Video Game to Movie stereotype applies to Video Game to Anime as well; expect a train wreck, be pleasantly surprised if it comes out anything above "below average".

Edit: Sorry, three times. I forgot about that cell phone thing for P3.

All I'm wondering right now is where the hell is Threads of Fate. It got rated what...4 months ago? It's not like it's some big money making title they're holding in reserve for the dry season. XP
1073  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Neptunia on: April 08, 2011, 12:54:05 AM
I found it new, I played the prologue today and I have to say I am happy I have it and I think i will like it.  I never played another other game from this company so its all new to me, I really like how its making fun of the whole gaming industry - but I dont get all of it yet (maybe lost in translation?)

My thoughts exactly.

Don't worry about not understanding all of it; that's part of the double edged humor of this game. If you know some basics about the game industry and anime/JRPGs in general you'll get some of the humor and enjoy it. However in order to understand the rest of it you either need niche knowledge or to have been exposed to so many tropes/conventions of those areas that you run the risk of the humor becoming not so fun-to-cringe worthy due to overexposure to such elements in the past.

Meh, I caved and chanced watching another anime the other night. Sakura Wars New York NY. You'd think I would've learned by now but with modern anime batting 0-5 I'm starting to consider just not watching it ever again. :-/ (So far Host Club, Corpse Princess, Slayers Revoution/Evolution-R, Sakura Wars New York NY, and Hikaru no Go have been solid "blehs" for me.)

Heh, peeking in on this conversation amuses me. So if family violence happens in a modern anime it's tripe but if the same thing happens in a book by a 19th century British dude it's undeniably a classic. Ah the hypocrisy of the viewing audience.
1076  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Neptunia on: March 31, 2011, 05:57:05 PM
Well, considering the T-rating you shouldn't be anyway. XD But I get your point.

Pick up a little mini-TV sometime. Like those cheap $200 or less HDs you see on bottom shelf at Wal-Mart. That's what I use and it works just fine; it'll give you something to put in like a study or side bedroom for private gaming.

You don't even have to go that deep into Japan's under belly. Just watch any "normal" anime done by Gainax.

There's a reason the term Gainaxing exists: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Gainaxing

Oddly enough, I think i'd like this game if it wasn't so fanservice heavy. I can't really imagine playing it wen the wife and kids might walk in.. i'd feel dirty.

Umm...actually this is fan-service "light". There's only that one section in the beginning that's voiced and there's a totally optional un-voiced event that has some eye-rolling dialog; but so far that's it. Neptunia is extremely tame. Especially compared to something like say...Bayonetta; which I have yet to see anyone go "Oh I'd feel dirty playing that." XD
1079  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on: March 30, 2011, 11:31:12 AM
I got that part. But the fact that there "is" a cliffhanger and one that theoretically you'd have to wait what...4-5 years to get resolved (assuming one year per title if I'm reading everything right and taking into account the Japanese storytelling tendency of dragging out a plot as long as possible)...yeah, no dice. XP Well written, well intentioned, or not; sequel hooks are not my thing right now.

Not quite. The Monster Call gives you a meter after you clear the waves. The meter ticks down as you take steps and doesn't drain if you hold still. So assuming you're trying to hunt down the hidden chest in every dungeon the Monster Call "typically" gives you enough time to find the chest and reach the boss with only 1-2 random encounters tops if you plan your route right. I've never "had" to use it more than once in a dungeon as the encounter rate isn't as harsh as most games. Heck a lot of the time I could swear I'd at least encounter one fight en route to the boss after the meter ran out only to be rather surprised when I got there untouched.

I forget exactly when it happened; I think it was roughly a level 10 party tromping around a level 15-16 dungeon but at that point the XP spiked up enough that I was leveling pretty quickly. Then again it's slowed down quite a bit now that I'm like 30ish and all of the sub-quest dungeons in my area are 28 tops. (Not counting the insane high level DLC dungeon quests.)
