I guess that some okay playing, but it pains me to see that somebody fucked up an Explorer with all those wapanese stickers.  God, I hope it's a copy and not the real deal. :P

The headstock didn't look like a Gibson headstock to me.  The one the kid was playing looked longer and more rounded at the end.  Methinks it was a Kramer headstock.

Still, it's not as bad as Flea obtaining a super rare, pre-CBS, 1960's Fender P-bass with a shell pink finish valued at $30K... and immediately slapping a sticker on it.  Bass Player magazine managed to snap some pics of the bass before it got to Flea so we could see it before Flea stickered it up.  I love Flea and I adore the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but I don't like the way Flea stickers up his basses.  Stickered up guitars/basses just look cheap to me.  

Anyway, this video is one reason why I love the Screaming Headless Torsos so much.  Every musician in that band is an absolute beast and that drummer man... whoa! http://youtube.com/watch?v=fYgPU-WnmnA

I'm stumbling around in the beginning segments of Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers.  Gabriel's an awesome protagonist.

Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, and Victor Wooten all on the same stage.  This is the ultimate orgasm for bassists.

I never quite understood the whole obsession with Guinness World Record breaking.  Some records are just not meant to be broken or toyed with.

Whatever.  If Miss Thing wants 15 minutes of fame in exchange for a lifetime of spinal injuries and back problems requiring serious coin for medical expenses, then I reserve the right to point and laugh.

It saddening the things people will do to themselves in the name of self-esteem, whether it's degrading themselves with hoochie clothing, buying a set of fake ta-tas (it's not uncommon for peoples' immune systems to attack the implants and make people really ill), or compromising their health with extreme diets.  You can't buy self-esteem.  It's one thing to improve yourself because you love yourself, but "improving" yourself because you hate yourself can lead to damaging consequences.

I know you don't speak Japanese, but if it's of any consolation, you can always play the Japanese versions on your North America PS3.

Whoa whoa whoa whoa, stop the presses here.  You mean to tell me that there's no region lockout on North American PS3's?  That blows my mind right there.  I thought only handhelds didn't have region lockouts.

ASIDE:  Eh, if you want eroge in English, there's plenty courtesy of Peach Princess.  But from what I understand, many games that are/were eroge on PCs get non-H console releases.
5527  Media / The Soundroom / What kind of music do you listen to? on: May 08, 2008, 03:44:36 PM
I <3 Devin Townsend.  Guy's a musical mad scientist.  I swear if he and Mike Patton did and album together, the world would implode.  Ocean Machine: Biomech is my fave Devy album.  Vai's Sex and Religion album was mostly panned, but I loved it because the singer was amazing.  It was Devy's debut and he slayed.  

As for my musical tastes, I like a wide variety.  "From Disney to Death Metal" I like to say.  I enjoy jazz, classical, some opera, electronic (like trip hop, some techno), funk, rock, hip-hop, R&B, old Motown, Asian pop, ethnic music, reggae, many kinds... my favorite style of music is easily progressive metal, be it stuff like Symphony X or more avant-garde stuff like Dysrhythmia or Behold... The Arctopus.  I love going to punk and ska shows, I always have so much fun at those.  New Brunswick NJ has a killer music scene and I love going to local shows.  

Music I'm not fond of are: anything intolerant/hateful (i.e. white power/neo-nazi hate rock), emo, overly twangy country/bluegrass, nu-metal, teenybopper pop (i.e. 'NSYNC), two of the worst bands I can think of are Fall Out Boy and Creed- they suck!

I'm a bass player, so I like to experiment with a variety of styles since I never know when/if I'll be called on to play a certain style since there are far fewer bassists running around than guitarists.  I want to try playing more Latin music since salsa style can make funky basslines even funkier.  Most fun I ever had was me and a drummer playing while a hip-hop artist freestyled over our rhythms.  I'd love to form a live instrument hip-hop band int he vein of Savin Ill, Aquavibe, Ozomatli, Arrested Development, The Roots, or somesuch, but every musician in my area either wants to do punk or hardcore.  

http://www.myspace.com/sullendoor is a band I used to play with.  I played on "I Need Hope" and "Old Friends."

But as mentioned earlier, Chaos Wars has even MORE obscure crossover stuff that NA audiences would likely not be aware of and it's getting a US release.

First of all, the key to a good crossover is setting up a new, original protagonist and somehow convincing the gamer to CARE about this person as you interact with the people from the other universes.

I could easily see Mary Sue-ism rearing its ugly head in the hands of less skilled crossover writers incorporating an original protagonist.
5530  Media / Single-Player RPGs / So X Edge (& Chaos Wars & crossover RPGs in general) on: May 07, 2008, 06:31:44 PM
Do you think there is an effective way for a crossover to have a decent storyline while still maintaining its fanservice (which is the main selling point)?
5531  Media / Single-Player RPGs / So X Edge (& Chaos Wars & crossover RPGs in general) on: May 07, 2008, 06:18:45 PM

I don't know about anyone else, but Morrigan and Felicia in an RPG?  I'm sold.  

There's speculation all over the place as to a potential US release of X Edge.  Sure it seems highly unlikely, but considering Chaos Wars is getting a US release and features IPs less known in the US than the ones in X Edge (Spectral Souls, Ar Tonelico, Disgaea, Mana Khemia, and Darkstalkers got US releases), here's hoping.  Speaking of Chaos Wars, anyone anticipating it?

But on the other hand, crossovers can be hit or miss for me.  The Super Robot Taisen games are good, but Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology was weak.  

So yeah, talk about X Edge, Chaos Wars, and crossover RPGs here.  Maybe talk about what characters you'd like to see in a crossover RPG.  The thread can go anywhere.

That snippet sounds like NP slammed Jake Hunter for basically being a visual novel.  Japanese visual novels like EVE: Burst Error aren't very interactive, but I loved them because they had f'n awesome stories.  

I'm still getting it since I love Japanese visual novels/digital comics and want to see more of them in the US.  If the story's even half as good as those in Trace Memory or Hotel Dusk, I won't complain too much.

FWIW, the WEWY soundtrack is available on iTunes.  Sweet.

I beat The World Ends With You.  Man, a few pin changes and a fresh strategy, and the final boss was utter cake.  

Good game.  I really liked it.  Review forthcoming.

Final boss in The World Ends With You is kicking my sorry behind.
