Fuck Capitalism.

That's basically what you're saying.

This is what I get for not paying attention while posting.

All marketing is discriminatory in some fashion. This is no different.

If you're 'sickened' and 'offended' by this, bear in mind that this is no different than any other ad or marketing method that targets specific groups of people. Having said that, I have five words for people complaining about this:

"Wah wah. Deal with it."

Looks awesome!

Is it true that Eric from That 70's Show is playing Eddie Brock? I don't see it. He's way too skinny to be Eddie Brock.


He's actually pretty convincing.

Our society is retarded. What do you expect?

Devil May Cry is not a RPG.

Are you from AllRPG or something?

I dissagree with Bushnell. I like my games to have depth. I think of them as an art form, not a mindless diversion.

Bringing games back to the stone age FTL.

And I disagree with you. "Pick up and play" games are perfectly capable of offering depth depending on what games you consider to be "pick up and play." The Zelda series comes to mind for instance.


Zelda is NOT a pick-up-and-play game.

As long as we're clear on this.

Jesus, you people are weak. I got through that part with no problems whatsoever.

The Belius/Velius issue happened because in Japanese, there is no V sound (well, there is, but it's never used) - they use the 'b' sound to substitute whatever word has a v sound in it.

A lot of the espers are original creations that are influenced by the zodiac signs. There ARE, however, many of the characters from Final Fantasy Tactics, similar to Velius. There are also enemies from other Final Fantasy games as espers, such as:

Code:
Exdeath, Holy Tree of Judgement (Final Fantasy V), Zeromus, the Condemner (Final Fantasy IV), Mateus, the Corrupt (FFTA), high Seraph Altima (FFT's final boss), and more.

If they announce this for PlayStation 3 I'm going to be getting one.

It's not gonna be MGS4, or White Knight Story, or FFXIII that makes me get a PS3, it's gonna be this game.

I don't know how it is this year because I'm not there, but I've seen less and less trick or treaters where I live. Damn hippie parents these days are ruining their children.

Xenosaga I/II DS is terrible. I hope it never gets released anywhere outside of japan so nobody else is subjected to the suffering it brings.
3645  The Rest / General Discussions / Is society becoming more or less overbearing? on: November 01, 2006, 08:45:50 AM
You may be saying right now, "That's a stupid question. Society is becoming pussified. Everyone's afraid of everything now."

True, we have ambulance chasers like Jack Thompson feeding off media frenzy and the fears of parents nationwide with his 'for the kids' campaign. We have schools banning tag because they're afraid of possible lawsuits. We have people banning Halloween because hey, it's just plain evil and our kids aren't allowed to have fun on evil days because it'll invoke Lucifer's Unholy Circle Scripture and unleash the furies of hell. These are the things we notice from day to day lives: people are becoming pussies. They can't go for a second without getting scared shitless about something and slapping a warning label on it or banning it outright.

But is it really all that? What if society was actually becoming not more overbearing, butless and is actually progressing to a more laid back attitude? Turn on your TV. When I was 10, I barely saw any blood on public TV. Oh sure, some stains here and there, but nowadays we have CSI. We have... okay, I don't watch much TV anymore, but the point is we have a lot more blood, sex, and taboo stuff on public TV nowadays. And I remember when I was buying trading cards as a kid, stuff like this was the worst thing we'd ever see; anything more was strictly forbidden and a telltale cigarette would lead to an uproar. Nowadays, we have this. Holy shit, I never saw anything like that as a kid. That would've spawned legions of anti-violence groups. Not that Wolverine and Hulk could ever solve their problems over a nice cup of tea and a game of chess, but you never saw Hulk ripping Wolverine in half on a trading card when I was ten.

Discuss.
