I believe the DQs were delayed to after Lun- I mean after the Summer. Now it's "Late 2016," last I checked...

...I'm hungry...

So.....a Wild Guns remake was announced for PS4 from Natsume.

Random and weird. I like it.


Heheh, yeah. That was really unexpected. The first game is good, but wow was it hard! At least a remake should have online co-op. The game really was meant for two players.

All I want are release dates for DQ 7 and Etrian Odyssey 5

Not gonna lie, that's all I need right now, too...

@Yggrasil - Then it really has to be said: why do you still come here? Why not take a break, or find another community that you might enjoy more?

I'm not even saying this to get you out of here. I've been in similar situations at least 3 times before - communities that I spent too much time on, butting heads with certain regular users who never seem to want to listen to what I have to say; plus all the jerks who always seem to get in the way, and noobs that always ask the same damn questions and drudge up the same damn arguments...but I don't know if that applies here. I don't wanna put a bunch words in your mouth. I just know that it can get frustrating to keep running into problems with the same people all the time. It can make communicating feel hopeless, even when there are interesting things to talk about, and maybe some good people who'll listen.

Sometimes you just need space. I know I just came back from taking a year off from another forum - I had been there since June 2008, and I spent at least half that time arguing in circles with people who couldn't seem to listen to reason. But the time off really helped me clear my head, and gave me time to focus on what's important. I utilized my forum time in places I enjoyed more, and since I've been back, I can barely remember why I used to get so angry, despite most the same idiots still being there. =P

'Course, I seem to recall you mentioning that you've taken extended breaks before, and they didn't help. I know I haven't been here as long as the others, and I certainly won't pretend to know everything about you. But I keep getting the feeling there's something you gotta let go. I don't know what it is, and trying to guess aloud would only be impudent on my part. However, I do know from personal experience that the first step is getting some space.

The only new suggestion I can throw out there is...maybe once E3 has settled down, just take some time away from video game communities in general? I forgot to mention, that year off wasn't just for one forum. I also scaled back my internet usage in general. I think I even took 6 months off from this place, too. Sometimes it's just the constant pressure and drama that always seems to comes with social interaction that you gotta get away from, you know?


Breath of the Wild has to be the most appropriate subtitle for what I saw - that was definitely the breath of fresh air I was hoping the new Zelda would be, and it definitely looks wild!

That's why they showed Pokemon afterwords!

Lawn-Mower Link is evolving!
*Insert Pokemon Red/Blue evolution music, because the internet sucks now*
Lawnmower is now Lumberjack Link!

...It just isn't the same without the tune T_T

Ashe would be my favorite FF character if it weren't for that neon pink ultra-mini skirt. Not that the size of the skirt or even the color itself bothers me, but I swear it was the ONLY presence of a color THAT vibrant in the entire game and looked incredibly out of place.

Yeah, but she's princess, right? She's just gotta look regal. I mean, she's got blue spandex underneath it, right? It's not like she's just wearing an extremely bright mini-skirt that brings unnecessary amounts of attention towards her...

...wow, my memory of these characters is way worse than I thought it was...

I will say that Horizon: Zero Dawn is still scratching every itch for me. I love blending fantasy and sci-fi in a terrestrial setting, especially when the sci-fi element involves nondescript robots. And just fighting robots in video games in general has always been something I've enjoyed, especially when the damage and "death" animations are as well done as they are in Horizon. Add in a tightly scripted open world, and yeah... REALLY can't wait to play that game.

Recore very similarly strikes my interests, and that one looks like it's going to have a sort of Zelda format that replaces Link's toolkit with the main character's robot pals. Though not exactly worth the price of an XBox One.

I'm more interested in ReCore personally, but that's probably because the of the faster pacing and brighter color pallette. Besides, Horizon looks a little too much like Far Cry: Primal - Robots Edition for my tastes. Not to say it'd be bad, and the story concept does facinate me greatly, but I'm just not not convinced that it could hold my attention for very long...

I forgot how much I missed good open-world Spider-Man games...

Also, did I read correctly that Jeri Ryan and Levar Burton were both at E3??  Why?  Was there a Star Trek related announcement or something?

Yes. It was at Ubisoft's show, though, so no one can blame you for missing it.

Also: Ygg, D - killin' the mood.

Why not take this outside? Queue up some Street Fighter or whatever you both play, preferably with voice chat. Probably easier to vent when the digital fists are more appropriately shaped than @'s and Z's, doncha think?

EDIT: Erm, not trying to one-up the staff, just trying to offer an alternative...and possibly some entertainment...

Shhhh...he's in the sub-basement, along with the Loch Ness monster and Slim Shadey (the real one).

BTW, I want to like Sea of Thieves.

That's why I'm going to avoid the latest trailer of it. Because that asshole floating in the corner of the screen is going to ruin any positive feelings I could ever have towards that game.

Speaking of obnoxious gaping assholes, Scalebound is an Action-RPG? I'm not sure how I feel about that. Platinum's always been best at skill-based action games, often with a fast pace. I feel like an action-rpg from them would either be too fast-paced and hectic for me to enjoy as an RPG, or the RPG aspects would just ruin (or at least significantly hold back) what would otherwise make for a great Action game.

At least, what I saw would just give me all the issues I have with Dark Souls and Bloodbourne, where I can't even treat it like an RPG. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy those games, but they wind up being more like the 3D Castlevanias that Konami wished they could make. However, that's also because of the slower pacing and the risk vs. reward factor that forces you to be more careful, and stay aware of your surroundings.

That is the antithesis of pretty much every game Platinum's put out since Bayonetta. Not entirely convinced they could pull it off any other way.

Speaking of Tekken 7:



I missed you, Tekken.

Well, non-Tag Team Tekken. TT's still good, but a little too hectic sometimes because of all the switching, makes it harder to get into the flow of things.

Honestly, the first Prey was pretty cool. I haven't played it in a while, though. Maybe I should buy it...except shipping from Gamestop costs more than the game itself...and the PC version's long gone...and my 360's not connected to the internet...and no Xbone BC yet (and is highly unlikely judging from the amount of votes), so I can't play it should my old Jasper spontaneously combust...

So how about that reboot? Looks nice, eh?

Glad the comp versions have a release date, at least. Still wait for the Vita version, though.
45  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: The "what was your first anime?" Thread on: June 13, 2016, 11:22:07 AM
I'm unsure.

It was either VHS stuff like "Macron-1" and "Serendipity the Pink Dragon" (which was pretty trippy for a 5/6 year old)

Or it was Robotech. I only caught a few episodes, but apparently most of them were character death scenes that stuck with me ever since.

Then came the Toonami triple-whammy of Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, and Gundam Wing, and the rest is history.
