I'm so sorry to hear that! I hope he rests in peace.

When you say "work-related" does that mean you didn't have to pay for it? ;)

DQIX finally came out here a few days ago. I've played around 15 hours so far and, honestly, it's not grabbing me that much. The gameplay is decent, but I'm struggling to keep motivated with the boring story and lack of plot-related characters. The open-endendess of "go grab whichever fygg you want first" is not a bad idea in principal, but it hasn't been executed all that well.

That and status ailments are a joke in battle. Do they EVER work?

Classification boards don't like 'anime sex' because, let's face it, a lot of anime sex involves characters under 18.  These characters are actually adults so that shouldn't be a problem.

You're absolutely right. However (at least in Aus), the character only has to appear under the age of 18 for it to be illegal. And exactly what that means is open to interpretation. So even assuming Catherine is in her twenties or thirties, if out classification board decide she looks too young (which they often do with anime) it'll be kicked.

Edit:
Not a good example for anime, but look at how long this list is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_banned_video_games#Australia

and, of course, that's only the games that companies have actually tried to have released down here. There have even been calls to ban Mass Effect 1 and Modern Warfare 2, but both were released without any censorship in the end.

You don't see the sex in Mass Effect. It's basically just implied. That isn't 'anime' sex though. It's animated sex. :P

It's not going to get a released outside Japan (Well, I hope it will get to the US anyway). Everyone knows classification boards don't like anime sex. That pretty much means it won't get a released down here. But then, everything gets ban down here.

Though it could get a release. My knowledge of USA classification is fairly limited. I just know Australia sucks with ratings.

Edit: "Down here" = Australia.

Ahaha, I see it. I love little easter eggs like that.

It sound worse than I thought , so far nothing suggest any kind of gameplay and It seemed to be a Persona without RPG elements or Random dungeon :)

It's not a Persona game so don't think of it as one.

I personally think it sounds very interesting. I'm always up for something unusual.

When I try and explain to people that I am infact, not a gamer, or an otaku, I will point them towards FlamingR1fts room. ;D

Direct away! The more the merrier! ;) Though I would definitely consider myself more game-obsessed than anime-obsessed. I actually don't watch anime that much. However I DO like pretty things. Hence the figures!

Totally over-rated.

The first one felt polished but a bit boring to me. It was really repetitive IMO and not challenging in a good way.

The only thing I found challenging was having enough health potions to spam through the lower levels.

Okay, so I opted to go for larger photos rather than a whole bunch of smaller ones. Hopefully they will fit in the post okay! As Mario would say... 'Here we go!'

~ Andrew's Gaming / Anime / Etc. Photos! ~
-- Gaming Shelves --

Part 1 of pretty much all the games I've beaten (and still own). Plus a few other knick-knacks I've picked up and gotten for free through work over the years.



Part 2 (the bottom half of the bookshelf). Mostly knick-knacks on this one. I'm particularly fond of the Scribblenauts rooster hat. Pity I didn't like the game. I suppose I could say the same for the replica I have of Bayonetta's gun. Down the bottom (I didn't really take a picture of them) are stacks of gaming magazines and guide books.



My PC Games Part 1.



Part 2--not a great photo. Note my fetish for The Elder Scrolls.



My Backlog of PS2 Games. Started most of them, finished none of them.



My PS3 Backlog. Sorta. I've beaten Modnation Racers and FFXIII, they're just still sitting there. Note the BlazBlue Arcade Stick (well, you can't see it much).


My Dumping shelf. I kinda just stick stuff here I'm playing/reading at the moment or are about to start + some other visual novels. Mostly from KEY or minori.


-- Anime / Manga / Figures Shelves --

Part 1. The price of manga sucks big time down here in Australia. $20 a pop. I tend to import from the US or JP when I can. Down the bottom right are some magazines, art books and all my DVDs.








-- Misc.--

Hmm... Maybe I should take some photos of my space...

Hold that thought! I shall return! ...after a shower.

I'm ashamed to say I haven't read a book in two years. I used to read all the time. I'd read at night, at school, as I sat around at home. I just don't do it any more for some reason. I think I get my reading pleasure from visual novels now. The dialogue is usually not as good as a printed novel, but the pretty pictures make up for it. Haha.

Having said that, maybe it's time to find something new to read...

That looks like a pretty big difference to me, Hathen! Nice work!

NO IT ISN'T HARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHH.

I jest. Except for Tales of Hearts, that is.
