Anything written at kotaku ever, I give about as much credit to as france for developing french fries...none at all.


Btw, was the purpose of that third paragraph to remind me about terrible things either recent or from 2006? Because that's the only impression I got.

Can you still get Gravity Rush for free? If so, there you go. EDIT: Nope, missed it by about two months. I don't know what else to tell you, then. Probably not worth it.

I think he's just trying to put things in perspective. Gaming is not that important - people would be sad if it went away, and a lot of people would be out of a job, but it's still just first world problems compared to...well, even bulgulary.

Urge, the most mecha I've seen in one season and only one of them interests me. Well, better than none at least. Also, World Trigger yay! Might check out Fate/Stay Night and Inou-Battle if I feel like it. Psycho-Pass S2 looks cool, but I gotta see the first still. Otherwise nothing else interests me.

Just to clarify, that link was only the 5th online-drama-related thing I've encountered today. It's not even the worst, either.

And yes, I'm really digging that kazoo version. It works surprisingly well.

I'm getting horrendously sick of all the online tabloid level, he-said-she-said online drama crap that I've been seeing for many years. It seems like no matter how hard I try to avoid it, I always stumble upon it somewhere...

*Sigh*...well, to liven things up, here's the Super Mario Land 2 Theme on a kazoo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmAaqvxYwB4&list=PLpNzehgvxh3CNURyEDM-5DV6mWXp_6ccU

...and if they don't have an iPhone 6 there? I mean, that machine hasn't even been confirmed yet, has it?

Personally I'd wait another year to see if they'll announce a western release of the 3DS version. That version sounds like a huge improvement over the original.

3. Some kind of major details on FFXV (release, gameplay, anything substantial)


2. Trauma Team sequel for Wii U

Double Yes!!

4. In the wake of Silent Hills, Konami announces Castlevanias.

Please no. I'm tired of seeing one of my favorite franchises destroyed right before my eyes.

Ugh, bro went back to Boston and we barely got to play anything together. ;_;

So no more Diablo III for a while...

So instead I'm playing Legend of Grimrock to fill the void. This game is yet another immense surprise I've had this year (4th for the year, after Ascension, realMyst, and Suikoden). I feel like I'm a kid again, discovering games for the first time. I seriously knew nothing about this game...yet I own three copies. ^_^; I plowed through the first three floors of the dungeon, and so far it's been pretty smooth. I really like how its a First-person Dungeon Crawler with grid-like movement, yet has real-time-ish combat. Makes the fights intense. I also like (so far) how there's next to no grinding - There's no gold, no shops, and monsters don't respawn, so you gotta make the most of every encounter, as well as explore everywhere for the best equipment. I also like how you can save anywhere, yet the healing crystal autosaves in case you forget. Oh, and the difficulty seems just right. I've died a lot, but its never to the point where I feel deterred. I just load up the most recent save and try again.

Oh, and the puzzles here are ingenious at times. I don't normally dig puzzles in games, but these ones have really made me think, yet they're never so hard that I feel like there's no logic to it. Hopefully they can keep this up, I hate having to stop a PC game just to look up a solution to a weird puzzle.
1211  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: August 31, 2014, 05:15:14 PM
Yeah, not gonna lie, I've been seeing it as some weird bird thing this whole time...

Anywho, games:

Diablo III is easy as pie. And we're playing on hard...tempted to bump it up to Nightmare...but I've heard things...
1212  Media / General Games / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: August 30, 2014, 03:08:15 PM
Sorry to bring this shit back into this thread, but it's just so damn entertaining.

Alright /v/ as a group we've raised over $5000 so what's our custom character going to be?
Just an average female gamer to troll everyone.
All the tards in the media will expect some sort of pedocrap or LOLSORANDOM shit and we will just give them a simple average girl.



I must say, despite not really representing their cause very well at all, this seems to represent /V/ more than I could possibly imagine. =P

And I just say enough with all the awfulness

So here's a bunch of commenters passionately defending Hello Kitty's identity as a cat.

Kinda reminds me of how I view cartoon animals in general - they're people with animal traits, not animals with people traits.

Of course, I know that's a bit of an odd way to look at things, since anthropomorphy means "non-human given human-like traits", but still...

Unless she's saying she's really a girl wearing a costume this whole time. Then...

So, we're discussing closeted furries now?

I kid of course. I would bang Hello Kitty regardless as to how much people v. animal she is.

Man, something awful has been happening to this thread lately. TGS seriously can't come soon enough. "Save us Japan from our own creepy awfulness with your own!"

You know, I would post "A Cat is Fine Too" meme, except I don't feel like gallivanting through that mine field any time soon. ಠ_ಠ

I need to update my backloggery. I keep looking at my signature and thinking I've somehow aquired Obama. =P
1214  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: August 29, 2014, 09:14:03 PM
Been playing a lot of stuff so I'll just do this quick, no frills:

Xenoblade Chronicles - Just did some quests so I'll be ready when I want to move on with the story. I like when I do a quest where I have everything already, especially if its a 5-part scavenger hunt. =P

Where are you on this? I ask because unless you're advancing in on the Mechonis, you really don't need to do sidequests at all and in fact shouldn't do them all in one go since you'll get way too overleveled and turn the better part of the game into a cakewalk.

I'm at the end of the Satori Marsh. I've actually have been skimping on quests up till now, so I'm doing some so I can stop getting clobbered...and won't have to do too many quests for a while afterwards. In fact, the only reason I did these quests was because despite being a generally annoying place, this game is so fun to explore, and some of these quests forced me to enter areas I might've avoided since the marsh is sort spread out and you can miss a lot of monsters if you just take the main road to the gate.

Gee golly mickey that is quite a rotation that you've got going there. Paint me impressed.

If that were my gaming agenda I'd go bonkers. It took me my whole adult life to manage a 3 game rotation. LoL.

And this week for me there was NO rotation whatsoever. I played the hell out of Xillia 2. Can't put it down.

Actually, I don't usually have "rotations" - I play one or two "main games" and then I play a smattering of other games in between to satisfy my ADD. =P

But I see I forgot to mention: Most of those games were played so I could test my brother's fancy TV, which I'm borrowing for a while. (He hardly ever used it anyways...) In fact, I still have two or three more games to test out because I feel like it.

My main games are:

Diablo III: UEE (just bought it and playing it with my bro while he's here for the weekend)
Final Fantasy XII (I want to beat it before TGS because I still have 2/3rds of the FF series to finish...)
Fallout: New Vegas (Despite being not as good/well-paced as Fallout 3...it actually runs well on my computer, unlike Fallout 3)
realMyst (Because it's easily the most interesting game I've ever played, weird movement aside)

I have a feeling I can add Fragile Dreams once I get to it. I'll probably cycle through the other 6 every once in a while, but then again, I might not.

Been playing a lot of stuff so I'll just do this quick, no frills:

Fallout: New Vegas - Just cleared out Primm of Bandits yet apparently they won't be satisfied until they get a sheriff, and the only guy who'll do it is a criminal who wants a pardon. Great...

Baldur's Gate - Finally made it out of the castle at least...on a file I made for messing around.

realMyst - Just beat the ship section. Now I'm gonna head to the stone age. Had enough of water for one day...

Final Fantasy XII - Finally got out of prison, now I gotta go to some mine to save Penelo. After I beat up a cactus...which I did once, but then I decided to fight a dinosaur on the way back. It looked like a good idea at the time...

Xenoblade Chronicles - Just did some quests so I'll be ready when I want to move on with the story. I like when I do a quest where I have everything already, especially if its a 5-part scavenger hunt. =P

King of Fighters XI- This game is hard, but I forgot how fun it could be. Nothing like pulling off some big combos.

Rocket Knight Adventures - Just messed around with the first few levels. Man, this looks like butt on an HD TV. -_-;

Astral - I wish I wasn't playing the Japanese version, I have no idea what's going on! Fun game, though. But how do I hurt the first boss?

F-Zero GX - Beat the first Grand Prix on Novice. Very exilerating, this game is.

Super Mario Shunshine - Beat the Manta Ray shadow thing (was easy once I found out you could stay in the water by the shore and just blast everything), the Yoshi-Go-Round's Secret (a no water pack level. Nearly got a heart attack, these levels are so stressful), and then I got the Turbo nozzle.

All in all, a good week.
