Yes, copyright was likely the problem (at least, I hope it was, because the alternative is infinitely more frustrating). They would still have had to acquire and pay for the rights to the song in order to use the instrumental version (which they would then have to modify by adding the guitar solo). Perhaps Superfly or whoever holds copyright for them (possibly the label) didn't give permission to use the vocals or was asking more for the full song than Bamco wanted to pay?

I heard Japanese record companies can be real stubborn when it comes to international rights. They basically want to have full control over a band's international debut, thinking the artists could actually make it big if they did things properly (and not, you know, enter the big world outside of Japan through the intro of some random videogame). It's a pipe dream, of course. But just in case they'll make other releases extremely difficult by demanding the impossible.

Instrumental Karma is great, though. I've been using that as my ringtone since forever. But I do wonder why they're switching back to this after several games with either English verisons or the original song. Couldn't get the rights?

I think it helps to remember that all people make mistakes (that includes you) and that some people has just so dumb they constantly make them. Sometimes you have to work for those people. But hey, you get paid for putting up with their stupidity (which may (eventually) take less effort than changing things) and get to go home at the end of the day, while they have to live with it their entire lives.

Also, even if people radiate dumbness while interacting with you, they may actually be good at their job. I edit ads and newsletters for small business as a sidejob and while the avarage owner can't spell to save their life, they are good at running a business.

Except when they're standing on solid rock you can see their peg legs. Wait, maybe their all lost their lower legs due to frostbite?

Hey, no reason the PS3 wouldn't be capable of 60fps. It's just that most developers (or gamers?) prefer complex visuals over frames per second. You have to work with what you got.

30 FPS on PC

I can hear TotalBiscuit's blood pressure shoot up.

(Meanwhile, my laptop is like: Haha. No. 10fps if you're lucky. Go play some more RPG Maker games)

In any case, I wonder how the game will be recieved on Steam. Looking at other Japanese consoles games that found their way there, people fall into two camps: the people who are just happy they can play those games (and would love to have even more) and disapproving representatives of the PC master race.

The future is scary and it is already happening. I got to do some cute matchmaking, though. Less cute is that I ended up inviting that one student for coffee. I blame the school I attended when I was a teen. It was basically like: relationships between students and teachers can be totally awesome! Look at these two teachers, they've been together ever since her graduation year (while your parents are probably divorced)! He's vice-principle now! Their kids are more amazing than you'll ever be!

34. Picross e6
I need e7 now.

35. Mercenaries Saga 2
It's like miniature version of Tactics Ogre with a price to match. Play this. Play it now.

36. Kami
Pretty, pretty puzzle game. It's a shame there aren't more puzzles. Something like a creator mode would have been nice.

37. Evoland 2
Loved it. So much nostalgia but it still functions as an individual game. Not every tribute to every game/genre was a success (Street Fighter boss fight was kinda meh), but their heart was obviously in the right place.

38. Etrian Mystery Dungeon
It was a bit of both worlds, I guess, but the best parts could never be united. I did get to make a Wanderer named Shiren, though. That was nice.

It sounds tiny snowflakes falling in a lonely forest filled with ancient magic *_*

Also, (a bigger version) of that first image makes for a lovely desktop background.

Shetland ponies are the best! The place where I used to ride had several tiny ones, including an extremely old one called Plokkie Eenoog (Plokkie One-Eye). We loved to scare new kids by showing them the empty eye-socket. Also, they had this small milkcart made for him so he could help with errands.

Soul Nomad is one of those games I just wasn't able to find and forced myself to forget about. But hey, if anyone here has a copy he/she don't need (both PAL and NTSC U/C are fine)... :D
26  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: September 04, 2015, 12:15:52 PM
Kids can be so... stupid.

I've got two sorta-nephews, age 5 and 7, and they often suddely decide something is 'for babies' and refuse to have anything to do with it. Their Angry Birds collection was the latest victim of 'for babies'. Now these two, let's call them S and J (S being the big bro) recently found a rabbit amigurumi I made for J back when he was an actual baby. Now they're demanding I make another so they both have one. On one hand, I like knitting and crocheting them stuff, but on the other I know the new toy could catch the 'for babies' virus the moment it is done. Also, S already has one: a monkey he likes flinging against the wall.

I feel flattered, but it'd be conveninent if they forgot about this as soon as possible.

Actually, all my pants are pretty loose-fitting, and some probably need adjustments so they don't fall off (because I'm not wearing a belt...). It's just that the pockets are really small because most of the pants with decent pockets were made so shoddily I'm surprised that they made it to the display racks without falling to pieces...

Not that it matters, the 3DS XLs are unjustifiably expensive for me right now, too.

Dude, as a dudette, if our pockets aren't already ridiculously tiny then we have fake pockets that some shitheaded designer thought up.  I get the plight of bad pockets (I just wanted to share stupid picture too). :(

A little while back I saw a cute belt with a pouch attached. It'd look nice with a tunic. I guess the female solution for lack of pockets is dressing like a Dragon Quest character.

I'm sure they had other cables. They were just nowhere near the projector. Which is... still not that great, I guess.

BTW, conputer is a great word. It describes the laptops by the conventions perfectly. They may look too bad, but most are fossilised pieces of shit that might spontaniously combust midway through your lecture.

At yet another anime convention. Things I did/learned thusfar:

-I ate a green cupcake from a jar. It had sprinkles on it and tasted like lemon.

-The bracelets are ticking timebombs, but security will kick you out if you remove them. They slowly draw tighter around your wrist, until it's impossible to cut them off. Hope you don't like having circulation in your hand! It's like a really slow Zero Escape penalty death, really.

-Screw the rules, I'm important. (Seriously, I'm kinda the editor-in-chief of the magazine that's a major sponsor for this thing. That has to count for something, right?)

-I finished my lecture on game journalism in exactly 60 minutes (the exact allotted time), question round included. I am awesome.

-Haven't been able to spend much time with my friends, sadly, but random strangers are fun to talk to, too. (This is how I learned the evil plastic that turns the bracelets can sometimes be removed by twisting the bracelet. However, if you are to late and the death trap has drawn too tight, you'll need to smash the plastic with a hammer or other heavy object. Without hitting your hand, of course. Fun times!)

-People made fun of my laptop. Yeah, I know it's old and bulky, but atleast it hooks up to the projectors with zero problems. Can't say that about your fancy smancy hyper sleek Apple products!

-I have a fan. She buys a jellyfish amigurumi from me every convention. This time she bought three. Soon, her collection will be larger than my stock (Twenty Jellies at a time, at most.)

-I kinda feel obligated to eat some fruit at breakfast, but my stomach nevers agrees. Threw half of the contents up behind some bushes. Hope nobody saw.

-Not-asthma is playing up again. Coughed through good chunks of the convention. Kinda suits the theme, though, which is zombies. Well, zombies and candy or something. Some sorta mix of deadly diseases and delicious desserts anyway.

Oh, don't worry, all three cats are still very much like cats (and not the dumb sort), but they're just very important to their owners for various reasons. And I get that. Cats don't judge (well, not by human standards anyway), offer company, and well, they're living things. Once you take them in, you feel this obligation to take good care of them, right? It gives you some purpose. Sure, it may be extremely minor, but a happy pet makes your own life a little happier as well, so...
