they updated the official site


I can't believe how excessively basic the story is. It basically just says "monsters are attacking so the kingdoms sent out battle princesses to fight." But hey whateaver :P

That's just about the world, it has details via the links to the left of that.

Surprised no one else posted this new insight into Yoko Taro's mind:

I don't know how I feel about this game so far.

As someone with no Nier or Drakengard experience, I went into this without expectation. I am really pleased in some respects. But in the ways this game is flawed thus far, it is seriously hard to swallow.

The music, characters and mood are so unique and brutal its hard not to appreciate. They did a fine job of making dark, gruesome and provocative very artsy and beautiful at the same time here. For that reason alone I can safely say I like the title.

There are some real nice conveniences in the title I appreciate as well. The ability to quickly return and replay just about any segment of the missions, coupled with a nice timeline and story summary are things I wish more highly story driven and cinematic experiences would do. Its super accessible to revisiit, rewatch/replay anything.

However, my praise upon initial impression ends there.

The camera, control and framerate in this game is freaking atrocious. Screen tears, stutter, poor lock on and wonky-as-sin-camera make for a mechanically rough ride. Now, I'm not saying it is unplayable. I feel more or less like I am picking up and trying to play a really dated early ps2 hack and slash that was well received back in the day.... Good but very jarring to try and adjust to due to the dated and aged nuts and bolts, if you will.

Bad qualities aside, its refreshing to have something this unique in my hands at the moment.... I just wish it were a bit smoother!! LoL

- It plays more or less like I had hoped Lightning Returns would have. This is a good thing in my book.
- I'm very intrigued by what they (hopefully) reveal to be Zero's motivations as the plot unfolds. Thus far she has the potential to be a real memorable character for me.
-I have now seen a baby dragon pee/crap upon getting yelled at.... and roll around in it. I feel like a more complete human being now.

Check out the weapon histories in the database on the title screen, especially for upgraded weapons.

I really don't get all the love for Xenogears' characters, since it went with the Star Ocean tactic of so many characters that they start to detract from ones that're well developed.

This is something that Atlus could probably sell really well. (nudge nudge, sega)

Just started a few weeks ago, and my camera/lighting are so-so.
That's the only picture so far that's not completely blurry or done with really soft colors.
37  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The instruction booklet on: May 05, 2014, 01:21:08 PM
- The "manual" for Arc the Lad Collection supposedly has 150 pages, but it is a compilation.
- Growlanser Generations' could barely fit in the case with both discs and I'd be lucky to make it stay closed, but again compilation.
- Sakura Wars (5) because the manual is slightly longer than the case.
- Assassin's Creed 1's manual has really fun notes from characters in the game.
- FF10's stuck out to me because it was the first manual I'd seen with over 60 pages.
- Recently got Tales of Xillia on clearance and was sad it didn't come with a manual, since something about the case feels hollow or empty without one.

I actually haven't watch any Breaking Bad at all up to now.
That said, I should since everyone speaks so highly of it.

Be sure to post your thoughts on it?

I saw an insightful comment about this game someplace, to the effect of
It's immature, but the characters are basically in high school, and a lot of us were immature in high school.
Though it seems to me like the game may not really be joking about perverted stuff so much as it is treating it with a nonchalant tone.

A bit off-topic, but that editorial about censorship in VNs made me wanna ask:
Why do visual novels without sex like this one generally get labeled as for all ages?
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Conception II on: April 17, 2014, 09:29:40 PM
I think it's pretty obvious that deathsaber has never actually played an eroge.  I do find it a little amusing how he can defend something like this game while simultaneously looking down on eroge when they actually have a lot more in common than he thinks...

Wrong, I know full well what these games are. I've seen vids, read reviews here. Games like Eselia the Eternal that have actual rpg gameplay to go with the visual novel sex shenanigans.

So why not play these instead? Because:

1. I'm a married 35 yr old father of two. I can play a game like conception 2 on Vita whenever while sitting with my kids, or in bed right next to my non-gamer wife, and not rankle any feathers. Because other than some occasional innuendo laden text, the game is basically no different than any other JRPG. I certainly couldn't fire up some sex game nex to my wife, or in front of my six year old. 

2. I"m a pretty much a console gamer only. All I play is purchased from Gamestop/Target/PSN store. I don't do PC gaming, homebrew, steal games on torrents, or purchase those types of games from places like JastUSA (again, yes I do know about this stuff),. That said, don't call me a newb- I've had almost every console made since Colecovision, and I was a heavy PC gamer in the 90s, pre 3d acceleration, when I kind of stopped because I tired of trying to keep up with it all, and decided to stick with consoles. But no, I'm not a pc gamer anymore. My pc is just for work and internet now.

3. Honestly, I'm just not really into porn/hentai/eroge. Maybe, if I were younger, but I find the majority of it kind of weird and gross. If I want sex, you know, I go have some. So there.

Aselia is one of the eroge that includes an RPG battle system, and you make it seem as if these games are "porn" (despite many of them having minimal amounts of sex) like most people would or generally do, but any basically any movie with a sex scene is still a regular movie.

If you're not opposed to PS1 games, play the first Spyro trilogy especially if you end up liking these series much.

Heads up to the staff, the article about this named the wrong Oreshika as getting brought over.
