The combat controls are pretty clunky

No need to be polite; the controls are complete shit.
I tried the demo and trying to hit a flying bat with your sword is an exercise in frustration.

People who've played the game more recommend controlling the healer since the AI actually performs much better with the sword girl and the caster than a normal human could hope to.

I also would have liked to see more "RPG RPGs" on the list but there wasn't a whole lot of strong candidates in that field last year, amongst other considerations.

RPGs are on the decline while RPG elements are getting more popular.

I need some advice on an affordable but decent PC gamepad. Mine is starting to break.

360 controller or Dualshock

AtL:TotS is indeed pretty slow.

Slow animations
Long delay between turns
Long AI decision time

Eventually you learn some uber moves on some characters that let you wipe large areas... but until then, it's pretty brutal.

I'm never to sure where to draw the line since the nudity in quite a lot of art throughout the centuries can feel just as pointless sometimes --- BUT IT'S 'ART'!!!!!!

I've dabbled my fair share into arts and the problem is that it's tasteless and plain.
The designs are fairly simple (belts in a squeenix game, whodathunk) and the skin shown does not expand the concept or the representation of the character. The skin shown isn't even made to be erotic anyway; it just feels kinda pointless.

I like my eros even more when it has a meaning or represents something (well something other than half naked 15 y-o girls sell well in JP)
Don't read anything scorn in that last parenthesis though.

I knew I'd be found out one day...

I kind of feel like making a short visual novel to show people's latent psychopathic tendencies.

Maybe I should learn Renpy for that. As far as I know, Renpy is pretty easy to figure out.

(Also I'm pretty sure the correct strategy right now would've been to grind for souls and buy them on pyro spells to spam at ghosts. Whee).

I don't know since I went agi/katana but apparently pyro is easy mode for DS.

Old bizarre mini tv serie based on a short by Stephen King.
I saw it about 15 years ago on TV (in French of course) and finally found it again.

The Langoliers

$9.99 a month?!  Who pays that much?  It's like $50 a year, and that's if there's not some kind of promotion.

Even less technically if you wait for a special where point cards are worth more.

In the long running 'you know what grinds my gears' serie:

Developers who leave junk files in their final built.

I'm looking at you Hate Plus.
Do you really have to make everyone who downloads the game download 0 byte files and all the useless .DS_Store files?

I think there's something about Mac devs that's worst since I've seen tons of games who leave the .DS_Store files and .MACOSX folders in the final built while very few Win games have Thumbs.db.

Because, like most things, the moment you allow a bit of it, some will abuse it.
Just think of 'super mario 2'.

Personally, I support both sides in this issue. I think censorship is bad but I can also see that the initial models were pretty tasteless.

Sometimes, I wonder why political assassinations just don't happen (here) anymore.

After sleeping with the fishes for a moment, some weird 'creature' appears.

Thoren: *snort* ( ̄ー ̄)

Thoren: (◐ ω ◑)

Eusis is forced to intervene and stop the hostilities.

With his iron will, Eusis is unaffected by Thoren's best efforts.

Thoren: ( ̄д ̄)
Thoren: Screw you guys, I'm going home...


And so onward through the Veldt.
