I don't know exactly when it happened, but when did Japan stop being good at making games? I'm so bored with japanese rpgs that I'm playing suikoden II now, a game that's gotta be some 10 to 15 years old. It's like they have a template for making a game these days...

Hero-Heroine
Badass-Goody two shoes-Brooding pessimist
young person aiming for big dreams-Quiet marauder in the wrong place at the wrong time-Ex military
Evil Nation-Evil God-Evil Dictator-Wronged Hero desiring revenge
Antihero-No antihero
Medieval-Current-Futuristic


With this base template, circle one from each line and you're like 50% done with creating a jrpg...no a japanese game theme. I could sell this to SE for like 20 bucks.

I'm afraid application for being my bitch is not an equal opportunity position.
I understand, my breasts aren't big enough.

So who else is anxiously awaiting the drop of PSN again today?

 have this on my gameq from gamefly,, but there release list says the 14th iirc. It looks cool, and I wasn't aware of online multiplayer. I'll gladly rock with anyone interested, PSN is AgentDv1.

Leyviur, you do a lot of traveling. Any chance you need an assistant...or a bitch? I can do both equally well.

But yeah, I'm kind of at odds now, I think the outlanidhs nature of this claim that this hacker group is gonna end sony really should be dealt with harshly. This is beyond just simple pranks now, law enforcement needs to get behind this and end it. As much as I feel sony needs to work harder to better protect us (its userbase and consumer base), I can't help but feel that these dumbass kids are going too far. I truly hope something is done about this, cuz I'm tired of spending money to have some group of basement dwellers tell me when I can play my games.

Who gives a shit what it's called?   I want actual details.  And games!
I do >_>
2751  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2011 on: May 30, 2011, 02:46:18 PM
...we can all play the Vita while reading the Bhagavad Gita...who doesn't think that should be the company's new slogan?!?
I see incoming nicknames for when it gets hacked. The hacked vita....or even better the hacked vita with cheese?
2752  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2011 on: May 30, 2011, 01:42:05 PM
perhaps since but Wonderswan has to take the prize as all time worst.
I don't know, Wonderswann isn't terrible, but Vita? I mean, it sounds like something from a spanish movie soundtrack. I don't wanna play games on my vita. Plus, what's the abbreviation gonna be? PV? I'm gonna play my PV, or I'm gonna hook my pv up to my tv? Sounds stupid, but admittedly, I still hate Wii more.

It's not really a spoiler... it's something I wouldn't have even known about if not for reading spoilers.  I'm not sure if it would have been a profound discovery had I figured it out myself.

If you want to know, then...

Code:
The main female character, Kaine, is a hermaphrodite.  You'd never guess, unless her extreme vulgarity implies "manliness" or whatever.

I usually feel the same way about spoilers.  For some reason though, reading something that *seems* like it'd be shocking still makes me go "aw crap, spoiled" even though my mind is nowhere near that when I am actually playing the game.  Like watching a horror movie for the 100th time, you still yell at the TV to warn the heroine, as if this time she won't get slaughtered.
Your spoiler, just for clarification, is pretty well known in the jp version, but they stupified it for us non-japanese, making subtle references not directly at it. If you go in with no knowledge prior to the game, you'll never figure it out, and even on the second playthrough with OMGMAJORBACKSTORYEXPLOSION!!!!!!! it's still pretty hard to decipher it....

Code:
for all we know, she could have just been a fugly child, who would have guessed she had man parts?
2754  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2011 on: May 30, 2011, 12:58:14 PM
Even if Sony spends their entire conference apologizing that doesn't actually make anything better.  A quick apology is fine but frankly I would rather hear about the NGP.
I can already tell you something about it. Apparently it's now called the playstation vita. So help me though, I hope that's a false rumor, cuz it would be the single most embarrassing console name since the Wii.
2755  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: May 29, 2011, 01:40:04 PM
Drakengard was too much for me to deal with.  Great game, but just too depressing.  Nier has pretty colors and a promising future; Drakengard is just bleak.

Code:
To what extent was it promising?  They didn't cure black scrawl on Yonah, did they?

Code:
What I meant was that as you're playing the game, you're successfully defending people, helping people... there are actual good things happening.  I shouldn't have said future; the ending indeed makes me want to LARP Persona 3 with real guns.

Drakengard was just scary and depressing the whole time.



Um, correct me if I'm wrong but....

Code:
wasn't the whole black scrawl just the inner soul of the person the gestalt body was saved for trying to get out, instead of leaving and becoming one of the enemies whose names I can't remember for some reason?

Again, I could be wrong, I mean I steamrolled the game in 2 days and did essentially everything but wipe my file clean (ending D). It's all still fresh-ish, but it's not like it stuck real hard in there.

Inb4Square/Activisionmerger?

Damn, how bad would games be ruined if they merged? Seriously, Call of Duty:Ivalice? Final Fantasy Pro Skater? Dragon Quest:Modern Warfare?
2757  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: May 28, 2011, 11:54:53 AM
I dunno if I posted in I posted in this topic or not yet, but I will now anyway. Nier's gameplay was pretty meh (generic devil may cry-ish beatings, combo system was bleh). Add to that the severe lack of weapon variety (sword, long sword and spear), and gameplay wise, it's all but disappointing.

Course gameplay doesn't mean everything in the game. The music score was astounding, literally enough to drive me through the rest of the game. The areas all had an amazing feel to them just because of the music playing through each of them. All the time I spent grinding for items and sellable stuff was doable just because the music kept me motivated. Of course, epic music leads to some epic boss fights, and most of the bosses were pretty astounding themselves. The last boss of act 1, for example....yeah not gonna spoil it. Let's just say it was amazing (and hard, he killed me like 5 times in a row on normal). The story definitely binds it all together, but it's weird. Sometimes it's spot on, and sometimes it's a bit much (like the forest area...yeah just strange really). But after the first playthrough and you get that little extra bit of story and all of a sudden the game is in a league of its own storywise. It's been mentioned, but you gotta play through it at least once to get a full feeling for the story, or even moreso a full appreciation. I mean, the whole bit about Kaine's past....that was well written. I tried so hard to imagine it while reading, like a good book, you know?

The makers did a really good job in the story department, and the musical score is incredible as well. Just a shame the gameplay was sub par. I still put this at at LEAST a 9.2/10. I gameflied my copy, but I intend to buy this one next time I got some cash on hand.

I though I was gonna have to reach for some medication while reading that, before I got to the end sarcasm bit. x.x
The sad thing is it's not completely outlandish. I mean, you can't honestly say no one here has ever done the full day grind.
2759  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: New parent on: May 26, 2011, 06:32:34 PM
If you shake it enough, it will eventually be quiet. At least, according to Peter Griffon.

I'd personally get used to being behind the trend of gaming, and start investing in a nice comfy toilet seat since the only gaming you'll probably get in is on the throne.

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time?


Besides, I bet many of us work full days and then grind for 12+ hours playing FFXI or (gigglesnort) FFXIV or RO or WoW or what have you. Come back when you run 36 hours of abyssea taking your level 30 Warrior to 90.
