I'm pretty much happy with what I played when  I was younger funnily enough.

Me too. Plus, I was smart enough to buy the right games. If I had the possibility to go back in time, I'd tell my old self to buy some more extra copies of Terranigma in 1997. I'm evil.

And I honestly don't get her obsession with whether female characters wear pants or not. Maybe Lightning likes not wearing pants and just doesn't give a shit about how the other characters feel about that? If so, more power to her. It shouldn't always be about what men like or don't like.

Tales of Vesperia. According to the game, I do not have a life. Thanks, game!

BTW Estelle is really obsessed with boobs, isn't she?

I'd actually prefer her size...

Yeah, it's a good size. Why would she want them to be any bigger? Yuri doesn't care. Rita doesn't care. And if she wants Raven's attention, she should just give him that hug he keeps asking for.

I can't speak for other cities, but I have a feeling that NYC is going to have to get a lot more bike friendly soon given the increase in commuter fares yet the decrease in service. I can't imagine any other way for people to get around, and god help NY if any more cars get on those streets.

It works well enough for many Dutch cities. It has so many advantages.

Oh, but they'd better now forget something very important: bicycle parking lots.

Dumbest Question ever?  No, I don't think so.  The 3D is on :P I have vision problems where I always see double and I wear glasses.

You're not alone. I can't see much 3D either. I kind of saw it coming (no pun intended), but was disappointed nonetheless. It's one of the reasons why I haven't bought any 3DS-games yet. I'll wait for reviewcopies. In the meantime it'll be used for Dragon Quest VI. To be honest, I wouldn't even be playing on yet it, if it weren't for my rabbit. He bit through the DS cable mere hours after I brought the 3DS home.

You guys need cycle lanes.

I honestly can't imagine a life without my bicycle. It's so much cheaper than a car. I still ride the yellow bike my parents bought for me when I entered secondary education thirteen years ago and it's as reliable as ever <3

Time to make enemies I guess.

Here's the question. Do women militate against oversexualization in games or about gender equity?

I mean, on one hand, the blog comments how there are very flimsily dressed women in GoW yet forgets about mentioning that Kratos is shirtless and has muscles that put a steroid pumped Arnold Schwarzenegger to shame.

It protests that you can see a female hand near Duke's junk on the cover of DNF yet forgets that Duke's junk is right there in your face.

You mean the 'Make me a sandwich' blog? I'm not a fan of that one. I think it promotes a very superficial way of what makes a good, interesting female character. It's not about what the female characters do, what their motivations are or anything like that. It's mostly about how much cleavage is or isn't showing. It ignores the fact that women can be proud of their body and want to show it off to some extend. It's not just about being liked by men, it's about being comfortable in your own body.

Besides, if bikinis on the battlefield make sense or not depends on the setting and fighting style used by the character. Many ancient peoples fought their battles practically naked as clothes only got in the way and didn't have the defensive power of a good shield. So, if for instance you decided to make a game about some sort of gender swapped, ancient Greece inspired war game, it'd make sense for the women to wear very light clothing on the battlefield. That doesn't mean they can't be interesting characters. Despite all the evidence found on facebook, wearing a bikini and a personality are not mutual exclusive.

What bothers me are double standards. Unrealistic men in games still have a lot of positive traits. At the very least they're extremely bad-ass. Unrealistic women are mostly there to be sexy, they don't really add anything to the game other than fanservice. Sure, some know how to kick ass, but in the end they still need to be saved by the big strong men. Blargh.

I wanted to make a little crown for the jelly fish, because that would make it a Princess Jelly fish. Sadly, I didn't have the right wire for the beads I wanted to use, so in the meantime...



I made a Kirby!

Oh wait. It's that day again. Which means it's also deadline day. Why am I browsing RPGfan when I should be working? I haven't even had my morning tea yet...

Ar tonelico Balduo, developed by North American studio Robomodo, is an extreme V-boarding game, the sport fans will be familiar with. Playing as more than 12 pro V-boarders, the title uses the engine from the now-defunct Tony Hawk series. Players who have purchased Activision's skateboards will be able to use these boards with Ar tonelico Balduo.

WTF.

Well I've been playing Xenosaga 1 this week, and I feel sorry that EU missed it but... How do you play only Episode 2? I thought the story wouldn't make anything close to sense if you only played Episode 2.

Well, it did come in a nice box with a DVD with all the cutscenes from Episode One. Of course it wasn't very useful when trying to figure out what the heck was going on, but it's the thought that counts, I guess. The people who did finish the game were never able to find out how the trilogy ends.  Xenosaga 2 still haunts bargain bins today.

Oh and we didn't get Taless of Destiny, Tales of the Abyss or even Tales of Legendia, right? Guess which Tales game we did get. That's right, Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology.

We also missed out on the first Katamary Damacy.

I'm pretty sure Namco Bandai hates us.

Luckily, I've got my trusty old (probably immortal despite being a very old model) American PS2 <3

Son of a Fucking Bitch!

This better not turn out to be another Terrenigma.

Yeah, as opposed to another Chrono Cross, Xenogears, Threads of Fate, Tales of Destiny, Tales of the Abyss, Arc the Lad 1-3, Legend of Mana, Lunar Silver Star Story, Lunar 2: Eternal Blue, Parasite Eve, Persona 2, Tactics Ogre, Xenosaga 1, Xenosaga 3...

Do I need to continue?

Have all those really not hit Europe??

Hell, have Xenoblade if that's the case, I'd almost feel bad NOT importing at this rate.  How interesting though, good for Xenoblade [Chronicles]!!  Enjoy the tasty music, albeit muddy-ass raphics.

Yep. We also didnīt get to play Chrono Trigger until the DS remake was released. Our first Final Fantasy was Final Fantasy VII. Or, Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, if you want to count that one as a Final Fantasy. We never got Earthbound.

BTW Tactics Ogre was released on the PSP and or special edition was rather nice, so I guess that one doesnīt count anymore.

could I import it, or is the Wii region-locked?

The Wii is region-locked, but there are ways to get around it. Most of them aren't exactly legal, but some of them have some nice perks like being able to play homebrew and DVD's.

Body odour. I mean, really, have some people never heard of deodorant? Do they never take showers? Blegh.

I know some people at animeconventions don't shower on purpose that weekend. The gameroom smells like a slaughterhouse in midsummer anyway, so why sacrifice those precious ten minutes of their time to pour some water and soap over themselves, right? The girls who spray deodorant every ten minutes but don't actually do anything else are just as bad.
