Just dropping info so you guys are aware:

Hajime Tabata: "XV is a road trip kind of movie and adventure that focuses on brotherhood." (*)

Another theme that has been hinted at with XV for the longest time has been 'Tragedy'.

A look at Kojima Productions' TGS booth: Fulton sheep replica, Phantom Cigar Corner, and loads of figures -- Metal Gear Informer

The amount of work and preparation KojiPro has done this year for TGS is pretty big. I've always been a fan of the studio and their work, so I'm obviously looking forward to their event.

I won't have any money or care about FF by the time Type-0 HD is out. Especially with all of the titles I'm interested from October to March.

Bloodborne is the only Japanese RPG I'm anticipating. Aside from that, I would like to see what's going on with the Deus Ex: Universe project and Cyberpunk 2077.

Edited for clarity.*

Bayonetta 2 - Nintendo Cosplay Trailer

http://youtu.be/9mFKGnxO8b4
Complete with old school sound effects and special attacks that make these costumes... surprisingly cool (but still tacky).

I'm not allergic or sensitive to this kind of fanservice at all. I love how there's different layers of details with each costumes that has been shown (and in comparison to others I'm not even the biggest Nintendo fan out there).

Besides, Bayo is all about killing angels and demonic entities with style without being afraid of showing some sexual playfulness in the process. If Nintendo censored Bayo, more than one fan would have rightfully lost their shit. But thankfully, W101 and Bayo 2 turn out as well as they have because Nintendo and Platinum get along pretty well.

I apparently missed that Gearbox is making a new game called Battleborn. It's another co-op shooter like Borderlands, but more eccentric and colorful, which is good in my eyes. I guess the competitive mode is more like a MOBA or something, too.  Also it's very pretty.

FYI, Battleborn is MOBA FPS. However Gearbox is not gonna call it like that because of marketing and PR reasons.

Think of how Bungie calls Destiny a "Shared-World Shooter" but you can totally call it a MMO FPS and feel good about yourself because both mean the same thing anyway.

Demo drops later, but Type-0 HD comes out the same day supposedly MGSV: TPP is released. With that and all the other stuff I'm genuinely more interested I'll stay away from FF for some time. Probably a long time I think.

Though, is like I've said in some thread here a while ago; The train for Type-0 and XV already came and went for me. I honestly feel nothing over this news even though I'm having fun seeing people in a bunch of sites exploding with excitement.

SQEX is blessed to have the fans they have.

サイコブレイクTGSトレーラー2014 -- Bethesda Softworks JP, YouTube

It's gonna be great. I feel it in my bones.

Huh...

In the same thread I was following on GAF two members there started to have a conversation about FFIX, at one point one of them comes and reply with this. Here he/she writes exactly what I've been fighting to put together in my mind to express it with other people for years, but I never could do it because of all the noise surrounding the matter at hand since the beginning and also when talking about Square's games in general.

I'm saying all this in a general sense by the way. So don't go bananas over me, I'm merely trying to share this with whoever read this.

And yeah, it feels nice that at least another soul in a forum I most likely will never be a part of feels the same. :)
53  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: September 16, 2014, 11:32:13 PM
lol

Pre-TGS hype on GAF is always sort of chaotic to witness just for the fun of it.

On games; Next week the last piece of DLC for Dark Souls II should drop. Looking forward to it!

Oh, and for all the bronies on the forums, Flutterguy in 12 languages must be posted: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ssp6wngr_qw Hungarian is my favorite but Swedish is a hoot.

Not a brony, but the French one is the best out of all of the voices IMO.

@Dice: At this point, with you is more of a thing that (I assume) is the wording in my posts that gets on your nerves more than what I say.

Is stupid how by quoting you, wanting to expand a bit more in one point in your post, gets a few all bothered. And lol no. There wasn't any misunderstanding. I fucked up for having an opinion and not sounding all happy fun time in process to you. Regardless, I say sorry for hurting the feelings of anyone and unintentionally derailing the thread.

Two comments on recent events:

1. WRT minecraft, my only concern about Microsoft buying it and potentially killing it is that I can't really go back and play the single player minecraft I'm familiar with because it doesnt exist anymore anyway.

2. That recent Kanye west controversy is like how is that even a thing. He was just making stage banter, told everyone to stand up, and was like oh my bad after it was brought to his attention that the two people were in a wheelchair. Jeeeez.

1. The world is not ready for Microcraft. On a more serious note, I wonder if they can maintain the IP relevant for as long as they have done with Halo personally.

2. Totally. The whole thing is just sensationalism and Kanye West being Kanye West as a far as I'm aware of. ┐(˘︿ ˘)┌

Is this the thread about the ethic of censorship in media?
Oh wait no.

This again...

Either way, I forgot to mention the Spanish translation (from Spain obviously) of Final Fantasy IX. The slangs and way of talking of Spanish people is the right fit for the world of IX.

By that I mean that much of the translation didn't really feel like reading a translation or localization of something. The dialogue comes naturally, and the steampunk setting certainly helped a ton to complement that very well.
58  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Gained in translation on: September 16, 2014, 02:23:21 PM
Yeah, I read what you said. You don't have to scream. -_-'

These type of things however, more often than not, are not done in the name of fashion.

Metal Gear Solid on PlayStation:

The Japanese script is pretty good for being for the first Metal Gear that went with a massive storyline. But the English translation, even with a few of the errors it has, has more personality and charisma than the original one.

Only MGS3 and arguably (for some fans) Peace Walker has come close to this again in the series.

I don't even care about the censorship angle, I think the altered costumes in Bravely Default were a lot less tacky.

For as mininal as that change was, it was still incredibly unnecessary. That kind of censorship is all about not offending the sensibilities of any potential consumers that goes outside of the main demographic of the game by pulling your pants down to sell your product in other regions. At least, that's part of the logic in all that process.

Besides in the case of BD censorship, I've always thought that some of the people that gets all bothered by that kind of stuff is being a bit extreme in my view. But then again, the West have always had all sort of problems with nudity in general...

You gotta stop being this vague or risk being seen as pompous.



I don't know where you got now that I was being vague.

I don't think so if the [so far] relatively low numbers for #OperationKosMos say anything about it.

I had no idea about this recently. I've been followng other things (like Tekken 7 and livestreams of Smash 4 for example).

Thanks for the heads up.
