-I agree with a lot of that video, though I think it looks objectively good in the sense that a lot of old games would be considered beautiful at release but ugly if they were made recently.
-As for this review, the camera is pretty standard and works like it should; haven't had aaaany problems with sound mixing.
-The framerate is so so generally, and it never seems to slow down (much?) at the most important parts.
edit: also, people seem to exaggerate the amount of the vulgarity.

Ham Sandwich retrospective

I appreciate all of the sandwiches commonly offered by delis, but like a good number of sandwich fans I only knew about ham sandwiches from more complex offerings but when I discovered that there were other sandwiches I had to try them out, I did not know that I would embrace ham and turkey sandwiches and they became some of my favorite sandwiches of all time... This is a video on the basic ham sandwich.

And holy shit was that ever a run-on sentence.

No matter how I feel about pastrami on rye (I don't hate it...it's just my least favorite sandwich...that does not mean it's bad, though), I have to thank delis everywhere because if it were not for pastrami on rye I would never have discovered the basic ham sandwich.

Which is kind of weird when you think about it.

And reubens are friggin awesome.  Visit my youtube channel.

Ew, ham sandwiches.

Peanut Butter+Banana is clearly the best option in all situations.

You good sir are quite insane. The ham sandwich is the greatest sandwich in existence! Combining ham and swiss cheese is one the greatest inventions that mankind has ever made! To deny that is to deny the very essence of humanity! As such, you are clearly a lizard person as no one else would dare to deny their humanity to such an extent.

I hate ham

I found a new awesome reviewer.
And something no one else seems to have gotten is a glitch in chapter 3, the first time those spirits appear, for me the last one never came out even though it was on the minimap.

The face buttons (at least A) on the X360 controller seem to get stuck for a second until they're usable again, so mashing a button like A can be more of a pain than it should be.

Keep in mind that development on this started about 5 years ago.

I found a dungeon on gamespot's 404 page and it may be too entertaining for its own good.

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.
43  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?
