I hate to say that this Adol looks a bit generic in his design. But other than that, the game looks fine.

I've always wanted to know what Hideki Kamiya thinks about what Capcom did with Okami, but after seeing his various replies in twitter with fans that every time or so ask him about Devil May Cry and DmC it seems that he got over all of that mess and move on.

Though, the fact that Bayonetta is pretty much Devil May Cry Next-Gen and that the new Wii U game he's working on looks very influenced by Viewtiful Joe makes me wonder if he still is a bit annoyed by how his creations were treated at Capcom.

I remember one time in a old interview with him when DMC2 was being made if he could give any details about it. He didn't even knew at the time that Capcom was doing a sequel to his own game...

Hating on Capcom is a popular thing to do in the gaming community, but over the years the only thing I've learned about the them is that is has always been run by douchebags that happen to have very talented and passionate people working for them that sooner or later leave them for any given reason.

The only renowned developer from there that I've haven't read any drama about (not yet anyway) is Shu Takumi. You know, the director of Ace Attorney and Ghost Trick.

I never got familiar with the Fate stuff.... I was always under the impression it was more "Pokemon" and less "Fantasy" (not that there is a problem with that) and just sort of turned a blind eye to it..... been meaning to check it out though......

What the hell? :|

How did you even come up with comparing Pokémon with Fate/stay night? Please, explain.

Speaking of Fate stuff I just got my Unlimited Blade Works blu-ray.  Good film.  I like that route better than the one in the TV series.

Really? Might wanna go watch that soon then. I enjoyed the anime series a lot.

Never bothered with Fate/Zero though, maybe after the movie that changes.

Okami was developed by Clover Studio which many of those guys are know now as PlatinumGames. After Capcom released Okami for the PS2 they erased the Clover Studio logo from the box in (some of?) the re-releases and replace it with the classic Capcom logo, and for what I know the Wii version doesn't have the final credits movie which was removed from original release.

Also, the spin-off/sequel Okamiden was made by the same team (or part of it) that did the Wii version by people at Capcom. The entire joke of Okamiden was being a tribute to the original game more than a sequel. I think someone from the staff said that in a interview.

Parasite Eve 2: Its like a resident evil game (pre-RE4), but does enough to differentiate itself from them (you can purchase spells that do a lot to make combat a lot more manageable than your typical pre-RE4 RE game does, ammo isn't that big of a concern and neither is limited saves). A decent game that actually manages to avoid some of the more standard cliches that survival horrors are known for. Too bad it's the very last game in the Parasite Eve line and that there never was a proper or true follow up since (though pretenders have tried) and with Squaresoft being nothing more than a fading memory of a bygone era there's absolutely no chance for a Parasite Eve 3. (NO CHANCE AT ALL!!!)

Eh, at least we got a good soundtrack out of The 3rd Birthday.
3756  Media / General Games / Kojima on MGS5: "We have not yet finished with Solid Snake" on: June 20, 2012, 12:42:54 PM
"There will be a Metal Gear Solid 5 with the new FOX Engine," confirmed Kojima (via Google Translate), "but what we've shown was not gameplay, or anything like that. It was only a demo that we had developed internally and released because the lighting and interactions with the environment had fooled everyone."

Kojima continued: "About Metal Gear Solid 5, I can tell you two things. There will be much question of infiltration, espionage, and convincing people to give you "a favor" like in the last Metal Gear Solid. I liked the idea of ​​social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but we will see. And if I say more, the female ninja public relations officer, who is behind the door, I will be carved up into pieces. So it's better that we meet again when the time comes to talk about Metal Gear Solid 5."

Kojima also touched upon Metal Gear Rising, reiterating that it is not a Solid Snake title, but rather an offshoot that does something new.

"Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance never claimed to be a Metal Gear Solid. This is not a game about our beloved Solid Snake. It is a spinoff that tries something different. We have not yet finished with Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of the Patriots."

I actually also just orderd these games to

xenogears, vagrant story, alundra, grandia, parasite eve.

I have heard great things about those games but have zero experience with them. do they live up to the hype?

Yes. Though, Xenogears can be a mixed bag for some people and Parasite Eve II I've read before that is not as good as the original game.

Stunning stuff -- I love how clear the game looks when compared to the PS2 (though I don't recall the PS2 version looking that bad).

Capcom did the same thing when they compared side-by-side RE4 in their trailer for the HD version. RE4 on GameCube looked stunning when it came out, RE4 on PS2 was ugly as hell though.

Anyway, never had the chance to play Okami before so this great with the trophies, good price and what not. It is confirmed that this HD version is a port from the PS2 version? Knowing that would make this already nice package all the more worth it to get it since I've read that the one for the Wii is borked or something.

Yeah there are figures with the standard costumes, the only depressing thing I can see about the one with the swimsuit costume is that there's people buying that stuff for the wrong reasons. I don't see anything depressing with the figure itself though. ・ヘ・

So I wouldn't call this a depressing cash-in (or at least not depressing)

Preview: 1/7 Selvaria Bles Swimsuit Ver. No.9 BIG Size Images

What about this then?

I like the figure but there's people saying that is depressing.

This not porn. Nope.

3762  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Valkyria Chronicles Duel announced on: June 19, 2012, 11:19:42 AM
"Sega's latest take on the Valkyria Chronicles series is a browser game. View the first trailer for Valkyria Chronicles Duel here.

According to the trailer, Duel has players build up battalion by collecting cards. You'll find over 200 character cards in all.

Your duties include developing your base camp, taking control of enemy territories, acquiring new troops by becoming a commander, and taking part in "3D character battles" featuring the same basic style as in the Valkyria Chronicle games."

I always prefer to recommend the entire series rather just MGS1 and 3 because "there are the better games and the stories are tolerable", I mean what the hell, every game is good in it's own way. I at least can't say I've hated a single (canon) Metal Gear game, not yet anyway.
3764  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 18, 2012, 07:39:37 PM
All right, got all the goddamn trophies in Uncharted 3. Finally... finishing the game on Crushing difficulty is a pain in the butt and that's mostly because the game itself isn't really designed to play it on that difficulty (unless you are a masochist or suffer from gaming OCD).

Even is you are good at the game and have memorized all the events you are always gonna get kill either by Drake doing something stupid that you didn't want him to do or a bad guy is going to appear out of nowhere with a fucking shotgun ready to blow your face off.

Lovely game though. Also my fingers hurt a bit... been playing this thing for too long. :|

I'm in the mood to play Portal 2 again for some reason, might wanna go play that later.
3765  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 18, 2012, 01:45:13 AM
Still stuck with Uncharted 3. Can't enough of this track though, so good. :o
