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.

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.

I actually expected these kinds of reactions since I've seen them more than once before when people talk about EVA and Xeno. I see things haven't changed all that much.


It has been a long time, but I remember the Xenosaga games being censored. I wonder if these remasters happen they do the extra work necessary for the Western release to have the uncensored versions of each game along with any other significant change for any of the games. Though... in general, I doubt Xenosaga is that much of a big series to put the time and effort that's needed to release these games again nowadays.

I mean right now, Resident Evil and Kingdom Hearts remasters are being done mainly (but not exclusively) because there's a sizable audience that make the investment worthwhile for the publisher and anyone else involved in the process. Does Xenosaga has that going on?

There are two things Oda excels at. 1. Giving his characters weird powers that make for interesting battles and 2. World building, oh god does he excel at world building.

Yup. Those two points are some of the best elements a shounen manga can aspire to have.

I left the series behind a long time ago, but One Piece is one of those things that's a pretty fulfilling and entertaining experience to follow in the long run.

Sorry to those who want it, but this guy wins in the most angriest way possible... And for making me laugh.

Well, I think the big difference between Evangelion and Xenosaga, is that EVA as a series is aware of what it is and it handles most of its narrative in a serviceable and interesting manner for its audience. Xeno on the other hand come off as a ball of decent concepts that couldn't be realized at their full potential.

That said, Xenogears was cool for what it was in its time.

Lost stuff about MGS happened in preparation for TGS. Here's what matter the most:

What makes this excellent is that you know something is going to happen, and it's going to happen suddenly, but you're paused with fear

From the very beginning P.T. has an unsettling feeling. It also helps that the sound design of the whole thing is awesome for something, I imagine, they did in a relatively short amount of time.
71  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: P.T. on: September 13, 2014, 01:17:13 AM
I'm going to smoke it up later and see how this is with the lights off.

don't do it

Don't touch that dial now, we're just getting started.

Dragon Con Was More Fun Than Video Games -- Super Bunnyhop, YouTube

"This is why I enjoyed this year's Dragon Con more than usual. It had a lot to do with everyone else going on in the gaming world at the time."

So anyway, yeah... SMT is a helluva franchise, amirite?

74  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: TGS 2014 General Discussion on: September 12, 2014, 12:32:49 PM

Creepy Waifu Simulator being pushed back to a separate event so that most of TGS's participants won't crowd around the one kiosk and ignore the rest of Bamco's offerings.

Summer Lesson is too stronk for TGS! lol
75  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: September 12, 2014, 12:22:42 PM
I find it somewhat dubious that the "New 3DS" will fly off the shelves.

Majora's Mask remake exclusive for the New 3DS could be a start.
