I thought this thread was going to be about gamers being said to have bad hygiene.
I've seen some really unclean gamers in clubs and convention =(

I can understand the negativity part, but I do think some can be legit.

I mean, sometimes there are games that come out completely broken or not at all what marketing made people think the game would be like and if people pre-ordered it or buy it blindly... they won't be very happy.

So I'm re-watching Beast Wars and in the very last episode, there's a joke about Blackarachnia chopping off a dick as in a "you should never ask her to give you a handjob" kinda thing.
I was way too young last time to get it, but... well... here it is:

A Star Ocean game that promises loads of interplanetary travel and futuristic techy space opera yet spends 90% of its duration on some backwater primitive medieval-fantasy kinda world?  Gee what a shock. 

Yeah, I kinda wish they'd switch the backwater/future durations at some point.  SO4 might have sucked in most respects, but I really enjoyed the multiple locations you could visit.  I think it's part of the reason I liked Wild Arms 3 for really committing to the Western thing and making the entire main party use *exclusively* guns.

I didn't, but that was because of the 360 CD swapping between each planet.

The thing with PS4.5 is they can't really gib all the existing PS4 owners or current PS4 games in production, naturally.

At the rate that Backwards Compatibility has been falling off and the ever shortening of a piece of software's lifecycle (i.e. any game that ran on WEP encoded Wi-Fi, DSiWare, servers for online heavy games like Halos 2 & 3, degradation of disk reading consoles like the PSX, the PS2, the Gamecube and so on, the conversion from CRT TVs to All Digital TVs, among other things), they might actually go through with it.

Too many current owners of the PS4 it seems to me... alienating 500,000 people is one thing, but 50 million? (Projecting total sales by the time 4.5 even releases)

That's my sticking point. I think the crunch in media with tons of demand will begin to ease, in response to the simple fact that despite a plethora of media options, a lot of it hasn't really shifted what people consume (HBO series like GoT, etc), a lot of it is simply due to seismic changes in the relative valuation of things like games/comics/movies, etc. Consequently Sony will calm down and potentially just release an upgrade more in the N64 line of popping in a thing or substituting a that, less in the vein of New 3DS new system etc.

We're talking about the world of today where millions of people have to buy a new iPhone to have the latest firmware because otherwise they can't run apps developed for said firmware =/

What image?

Something tells me you posted a Photobucket image, didn't you.

You are correct.
Here, I imgured it for you:

I'm re-watching Beast Wars and slowly going through Banner of the Stars which I had never watched.

Just take this season to rest after the greatness of winter season and be at full force for summer which is looking damn good up to now.

Spoilers: There's another season of Fate/kaleid liner PrismaIllya incoming =3

I'm actually more concerned with one of the comments in that article that called Star Ocean 5 "the last breath [of Tri-Ace] and it bombed."  Did SO5 bomb?  I did not hear about this.

It was short. People got really bitchy about this. News at 11.

You forgot pantsugate.

Maybe it was 0.4% and the displayed number just rounds?
That would be 1/250 which is not terribly rare.

Key items that stay in your inventory after they've lost all purpose and reason of existence and simply linger there eternally.

One of these days, I'll make an entire topic on Kira Yamato.
Mark my words.

Sometimes I feel like conspiracy theories are a subversive form of fear-mongering to appeal to those who think they're more informed than the sheeple who gullibly believe everything they see on the TV news and buy into "mainstream" fear-mongering.

Well, since you got on the subject... I have this thing I've had in mind for a bit.
Is conspiracy theory-ism just a form of intellectual narcissism?

I mean, from all the 'cases' of conspiracy theorist I've seen, a big part of it includes being better intellectually aware than the common sheeple.
Like, if your premise is that everyone is stupid and that you are superior, wouldn't that be so?

Finally bothered to see what all the fuss was around SAO.

I can see why people say it gets weird and creepy, but other than that I can't see what the big deal is. I just felt kind of 'meh' about the whole thing.

Gonna check out Monster Musume next because, well... I mean... monster girls, duh. I fully anticipate it to be terrible, but... well... monster girls.

You mean the part where the plot always revolves around girls getting raped until Kirito saves the day?

Come back to this post later (currently at work), I have to post my favorite image from Monster Musume and possibly the best single page manga has ever done.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you possibly the best page ever created: http://i.imgur.com/GGMtU8d.png
