Might as well throw out a thread-requisite peeve towards Japanese Highschool settings

Ugh, yes. This was cool the first... few times I experienced it when I started playing JRPGs, but the hundreds after that it's just facepalm-worthy. Can we not get even just a college or work setting? Just for a change? No?

Sorry, but people won't know you're trying to rip off Persona unless you've set your game in a Japanese Highschool.


That said, I wouldn't mind a remake, sequel or spiritual successor to Hourai High.
The whole thing with Japanese highschools that makes me wince is...aren't they INCREDIBLY strict? I mean, I get you have rule breaker and all, it's inevitable...but especially in shit like Persona where basically the day to day seems to all happen at school and these kids just do whatever they want between classes...idk,maybe I missed something, but it seems like a real jp highschool wouldn't let any of the shit fly that goes down in these games...

Seriously, I've been in new york public highschool, and even there some of the casual stuff that happens in these games just wouldn't fly. Hanging out in hallways between classes, fighting on the premises with other students, talking back to teachers and security...it's laughable how unrealistic it all is.

Emily Blunt is pretty in a way like that one neighbor you have who you always stare at and never speak to, then one day she knocks on your door and asks you for a pretty simple favor and now you look at her in a whole new way because it turns out not only is she hot, but she's normal too...

At least, I hope that's how she is.

I mean...I MIGHT be overly bitter about the game. As a fan of both xenogears and the majority of xenosaga, I was incredibly disheartened by the lack of mechs...aside from the ones trying to perpetually smear your entrails on the floor. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I didn't come into it hoping for a xeno-like experience. When i came to the realization that dunban's sister would be the extent of my mech use in game, I began to lose much of my interest...then the plethora of fetch quests on top of fetch quests with a side of fetch quests drizzled with a healthy fetch quest glaze...and the occasional ACTUAL side quest which involved fetching something usually, yeah I was tired out.

And then there's Riki...but that's a whole different level of hate.

My favorite Tom Clancy game is Rogue Spear and not much has it changed that over the years... impossible to ignore the attention this game has gotten though.
Yeah, really hard to ignore, since it's almost entirely negative now. Massive has effectively ruined the game entirely with bugs, poor mission and weapon balancing, and basically every mistake destiny made. Also, this doesn't deserve to be categorized as an rpg anymore, it's entirely a third person shooter with semi rpg elements.

SWEET!  FINALLY!  I get to play the first Xenoblade!

Oooo, you are in for FETCH QUESTS EVERYWHERE ALL DAY EVERYDAY WITH NO END AND NO BEGINNING!
Fixed for accuracy.

Welp, these underwear are officially in need of changing.

RIP Wii U. You tried.

Dang it, I just bought the stupid thing!  Frickin' Xenoblade X is the most expensive dang game I've ever bought....
Seriously...

Wonder if I can turn it around for a few bucks back maybe? I love Xenoblade X and all...but it's done. No reason to go back or anything.

I'll buy your Wii U for 30 bucks plus shipping.  This offer stands indefinitely.

I can vouch for glass. He does good business. Take the offer, D.
...I paid 300 bucks for it 4 months ago :(

Also, sorry to continue jacking this thread (....), but in looking at Surge products on Amazon, I learned that this is a thing:

The Hi-C Ecto Cooler is coming back! Man, I loved those things when I was a kid.
With all due respect, as I haven't had one since I was maybe 6 or 7...24 years ago, how is this even related to gaming? Not to be a dick, I loved these as a kid and I was kind of excited to hear about it yesterday, but this is definitely either a movie related topic or a news related topic...not gaming news.

I've been a very happy GC and Wii owner, but I'd seriously like to thank the Pii U's ridiculous controller for turning me off to the system. Saved me some cash/woe. Although... I do have to admit I'd seriously love to try some of the Mario games that were released on it.
I really hope Nintendo doesn't try to go too far outside the box with the NX (which sounds like it may be the case). Nothing wrong with being innovative, of course. ...It shouldn't be at the expense of beneficial 3rd party partnerships, though.
The controller grew on me. It was much lighter than its hefty frame would suggest, and it felt pretty good in hand. The second display would distract me at times, and be completely forgotten during others, but generally it was useful (ESPECIALLY in Xenoblade where the font for the text was designed for people sitting 3 inches from the screen). I caught myself using the screen during smash a lot as well, just easier to react at the closer range. My biggest complaint was how TERRIBLE the network activity was, even with a network adapter.
