Unsurprisingly, Nintendo has confirmed that backwards compatibility with Wii U or 3DS physical media is a no go:


Not surprising at all =/
The Switch has a different architecture and not enough power to emulate.

I seem to be fine, although Twitter was out for like 10 minutes this morning.

This "attack" doesn't seem to have done much.

This is all relative. If you flush your DNS, you would likely not be able to access Twitter anymore.
It just means you have a 'path' that still works to the website. Everyone else may have broken 'paths' though.

That's exactly what Human did for Clock Tower.

Except Clock Tower takes place in Europe, not Japan. I'm talking about the whitest voice actors in the world who obviously don't have a drop of Asian blood voicing Japanese characters, and I'll be miffed if they keep honorifics, as well, since they make the dialogue sound horribly unnatural, and fellow SMT game Apocalypse does just fine without them (and I'll admit it's an exception and has passable acting). Other games taking place in Japan such as The World Ends With You make do just fine without honorifics, as well.

In the case of Persona, the honorifics are kept because the intent is for the player to feel like he is in Japan (even if playing an English version)
I think that intent is obvious given that they try and localize as few things as possible (Japanese names, foods are kept Japanese, stores/brands are kept Japanese, locations are kept Japanese, etc.)

BTW, Billy Bat finished a bit ago and as expected, the ending is pretty much nothing.
It's rare to find a mystery serie that has an actual mystery instead of pretending to have one all along and then when the end comes, it just skitters around the issue and does some bullshit ending =/

final dungeon of Brandish: The Dark Revenant.  I've loved the puzzles and the ambiance.  It's been challenging without being punishing and the setting is spooky without being an over the top Diablo style gorefest.


Now try Planet Buster...

I started an anime called Erin: The Beast Tamer on a recommendation. The MCs eyes freaks me out though. I think she's trying to steal my soul.

That's a blast from the past.
I liked Erin: The Beast Tamer. Got a bit long at some points, but still a good serie overall.

My next binge whenever I have time and I'm in the mood is still going to be LotGH. I really gotta see what all the hubbub is for about that serie.

I have maybe 20 years of MMORPGs in me and I just can't feel excited about anything now.
I wanted to like ToS but it's just a grind game with little else (which is weird because RO wasn't that much more and I loved that game for years).
I don't know if it's just because I've played too many or just that they stopped bringing in change and end up being the same altogether.

I feel like the next big thing in MMORPG will need to shake things up a lot.

Boo, I liked Rorona's battles.

I'm not sure you understand what quoting means...

Psycho-Pass S2 is masochist bait.

Possible its similar to the whole "half of video game players are women" thing, where men and women are just looking at different products. Anecdotally the women I know watch totally different shows than I do with some occasional crossover. I remember in high school a lot of girls liked watching Fruits Basket and Ranma and I didn't care for either of those. More recently, I've heard the most recent Gundam show drew a lot more female viewers than usual precisely because of some things that their base audience don't care much for (It's only something I've heard, haven't gotten around to watching it yet myself).
...are you talking about Iron Blooded Orphans? Because I am drawing blanks on what in that series would cause it to appeal to a female demographic more than usual.

No idea.

I'm always weirded out when people talk about their familial bonds.
My family doesn't really have any and if anything there's more hate than love.

I don't really hate anyone but I can't say I'm super attached to anyone nor are they to me.

Sometimes, I wonder how I'll feel when my parents die.
Sad to say but, I know I won't be sad when my brother dies (assuming I outlive him =/)

Second of all, I didn't understand that comic in the slightest.

It's the origin of weeaboo

What is it about Japanese culture/media that makes it so alluring to so many westerners?


On that note: Is a western otaku the same thing as a weeaboo?

That would be elegant and classy.... if she was Asian.  Was she Asian?  I'm guessing no.

In which case.... WEIRDO!

It would still have been weird if she had been Japanese, because regular Japanese people don't wear traditional clothing much. Wearing kimono daily is something mostly excentrics do.

Then she just needs to always go "Oh oh oh!"
