Is jank a bad word to day these days? 

Nightcrawler was amazing!  Derek was right to point it that it was a reductionist argument to say that movies are targeted towards children, but I really feel like television is pushing narrative structure, characters, and themes in a way that most (again, I say most) movies simply aren't interested in even attempting.  Sure, you have Ex Machina pushing the ideas of what it means to be human, but for everyone one or two of those "under the radar" films you have tons of audience pleasers designed to bring in a lot of cash.  Nothing wrong with that, of course, but I love how television shows like The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Americans and Game of Thrones attempt to try new things in the medium.  It's also way easier to have these "slow burn" stories when you have hours and hours to tell them. 

And The Mark of Kri was amazing.  Real shame what happened to the sequel...

Not a bad word, but it makes me laugh every time I hear it, and then I think of that random npc Jank at the dock colony in Xenosaga 1.
I think a prime example of good and new TV is Mr Robot and come to think of it, maybe Netflix making their own original stuff plus Amazon/Hulu have made TV really good again because competition.

Nintendo executives should read this thread.

I swear right as I heard Rob talking about Witcher 3 improving the way Geralt controls, I thought he was about to use the word jank.
And the last movie I saw that comes to mind as being really mature and adult, etc, was Nightcrawler but I don't keep up with many recent movies.

edit: Points for mentioning Mark of Kri, btw.

You could try adding something like a feedback thing, mainly to help if someone has some games for you to list or if something is inaccurate.
edit: it may also be helpful (if you can) to specify the region of the release dates and the platforms, since a lot of games are released several years apart in different regions.

"Rob likes 1990s, early 200s JRPGs"
"I like games with short, snappy battle systems and interesting characters."
AHEM, SHADOW HEARTS 1 AND 2, ROB.

My favorite comment on the siliconera article went something like
Quote
Wii salute U

He probably would've smiled at that.

"slighty-dated presentation"
I think it looks gorgeous.
I wonder if we'll ever be at a point that it won't matter if a game looks (potentially very) dated, if it looks really pretty.

The miniature XBox 360 controller has been the greatest PC controller I've ever had. I'm in the slight minority of preferring smaller controllers, so that's the one thing I've never liked about the 360 controller. So when I started looking to replace my old logtiech hunk of junk, everyone kept saying 360 was the way to go. This frustrated me, as the more I looked the more it seemed like that was the ONLY way to go. Even the other options were just replicas of the 360 controller. Then I finally discovered the Mini Pro version of the XBox 360 controller, and now if a game has the option to be played with a controller (except shooters) I always do just that.

You could also use a PS3 (or PS4 probably) controller with a program called SCP (scarlet crush productions) or BetterDS3.

I'd honestly prefer a modest "remake" to upgrade it to Shadow Hearts level graphics, because I'm a sucker for pre-rendered backgrounds, but it'll be neat to see if the battle system is completely changed.

Best thing about this news is that Nomura is directing, probably the best choice at this point and only that could do a good job at this

I hope it doesn't take attention away from KH3.

I played a rom of the gba version and damn, being able to speed up the game (walking and random battles) is a godsend.
edit: As for ninty playing up the Wii U, it's the exact opposite of Sony ignoring the PSV, and people have complained about both.
14  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Looking for feedback on the racing game I'm developing on: June 10, 2015, 04:18:55 AM
I don't do multiplayer, but it's looks alright.
Just give it a (preferably super original) identity and change the name, then release a demo on a forum for fans of racing games, in the vein of these threads

It seems like they did something you didn't that made people not think of those threads as spam.

I don't know what to think of Double Fine ever since that comment Tim Schafer made about gamergate, and also because of Spacebase DF9.
I guess it seems promising?
