Why do I keep bothering to expect anything out of these clowns (especially when you have stuff like SMTIV's "Female Protagonist? We can't do that! That would break with tradition.", and anything to do with Performa Emblem)?

Atlus: #FE is a spin-off, it doesn't count into the main series tradition. Stay salty bro. :3


To be fair, the moment you saw they were putting the only human female cast member in a barftastic latex red 'cat'suit the writing was clearly on the wall anything related to her was going to be pure rubbish. Persona included.

If anything that's rubbish here to be honest is the delay. All of this attention P4 got is frustrating to a certain degree.

@pseudonym: More than whatever priorities the player might have, the issue with a few of X's side-quests is how uneven the design/structure is when the main journey in X is, for the most part, as solid as it is.

Upon looking again, yeah I'd say he's more Shuyin (FFX-2) on steroids.

Not even their color palettes are similar mate.

The blonde guy looks like Tidus on steroids.

He looks nothing like Tidus. If anything he resembles someone I expect to see from the SaGa series.

I pity the fool who puts time into FFX's minigames. Tidus getting Blitzbombed in X-2.5 though... 10/10 moment.

gg Nojima.

"We were originally planning on doing two sets of DLC," Masaaki Yamagiwa, Sony Japan's producer for Bloodborne, told Eurogamer at Tokyo Game Show. "It was decided that with one set, we'd be able to do more with it, and have more volume for players to play with. As of right now, we have no plans for any more DLC." -- Eurogamer

Judging by the TGS trailer, yep. Wikipedia also lists him as the composer, though they don't source it.

Huh. I would have expected they mixed things up a bit for variety with one or two new composers.

Not what I said! :)

I forgot to add that I was being facetious there. My bad.

Is Sakuraba still the main composer?

Apparently you're having some trouble with truth yourself- still having some issues with that tricky reading comprehension stuff I see. Somehow I'm not surprised you managed to miss the point that it's not about whether or not you're right that some people get assblasted about fanservice characters, but that you don't come off as being any better by getting personal whenever people talk about things in a way you don't like. Part of me wants to think you actually know better but you just pretend otherwise so you have excuse to act the way you do, but I guess that's actually worse.

So I was right. Is how it came across that's the issue if you get like this. I get how you imply that out the post, but I just posted that without any malice or superiority. I don't know how that's hard to believe.

Which makes Raiden even more of a failure because I vastly prefer the grizzled old manbeard in Metal Gear Solid.

Well, let me articulate this for a moment. Anything after MGS2 is one massive retcon that go against the original wishes of Kojima as the director, and the extend he goes with Raiden to make him more troubled and meaningful than Snake ever was up to that point in MGS2 (since he's busy being an idealized image aside of a philanthropist) says a lot. And I wouldn't call him a failure at all with how he eventually became popular either by the late appreciation MGS2 got or once Raiden went to become a cyborg ninja.

You realize people are allowed to have a different opinion?  Why do you have to take it personally when they don't?  Between not liking giant tittied women or not liking the FF13 series or whatever else...you just take it really, really personally.

Got it. I won't say anything ever again.

It really is amazing at times how lacking in self awareness you are.

Nah man, you just don't like how I got that piece of truth across. No need to stress over it.

I'm reminded of an interview about MGS2 I read once where someone (not sure if it was Kojima or some other staff member) said they had some focus group playtest the game and the young women playing it claimed there was too many old guys, and they ended up designing Raiden based off their feedback. What's funny is that you have this character who was specifically created to appeal to women but I still see lots of people claim Raiden doesn't count because he's still a male power fantasy or whatever.

I really don't know where the whole thing with schoolgirls came out when originally it was a fan letter by a female player that was took into consideration by Kojima that got things going for Raiden's look.

Either way, the point is that Raiden's look was fanservice that was requested but Kojima used that to fiddle everyone. Raiden is a walking allegory for a bunch of stuff, as well as being one of the most important pieces in MGS2's metanarrative.

Also, Shinkawa thought that Kojima was joking when a pretty boy was being considered for Metal Gear. I don't blame him. He has all the right to be baffled by Kojima's shenanigans as the art director after all. :p

^That's... what a self-called 'old school Final Fantasy fan' would get high levels of blood pressure about for years.

How can someone be this wrong?!  /salty

I have three words for you: COM/COM/COM

Cute post mate. 7/10. Might read again, thanks for making me giggle.

XIII-2, in general, is super fun. Is a shame that so many FF fans are so elitists to even have fun with it. Lots of people liked it as much as I did while smartasses online where being dense about the game. Their loss.

Started MGS2 yesterday. Based on the number of dog tags I have, I think I am about 2/3s of the way through. Going to be working on this one for a while because there is apparently a trophy for collecting all dog tags on all difficulties.

Only the most skillful and insane fans did that back with MGS2 on PS2 along with being Godlike in VR Missions.

Practice makes perfect.

After going through all the main events in TPP I can say that by the end of it, with the truth and twist revealed along with hearing all of the tapes, everything that happened since MGS3 up to this point in this alleged saga TPP turns it into a fever dream. And I'm okay with that given how the context of the series radically changed post-MGS2.

Also, the ways everything comes into "full circle" it works, is not what many desired but it works. I don't agree with the views of other fans have saying that TPP doesn't offer closure when Kojima's vision is all about playing with expectations and later betraying those same expectations. And incidentally, in that sense I'm sure Kojima is more than happy with the "swan song" of the series being this way.

The core gameplay is solid and the tape in which Zero visits Snake in the hospital at Cyprus is a really sweet moment and Paz's story is a roller coaster as well as somewhat frustrating if you ever cared about her since PW.

DLC 101.

Ryu's beard will factor into Street Fighter V's story, more characters might be getting facial hair -- EventHubs

Facial hair is one way to get into the hearts of North American fans.

Unfortunately, like every other female in SFV, she looks horrible.

How can someone be this wrong!?
