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.

Old. Shogakukan is insane. The same goes for Shueisha. Which makes sense. Nuts don't fall far from the tree.

The above acts, whether commercial or non-commercial in character, are acts of copyright infringement.

Not according to Dutch and many other countries' copyright laws.

Not that it really matters to them. Scare tactics can be quite effective even if the law is not on your side. Aniway, a Dutch anime/manga magazine I write for is scared shitless Shueisha or Shogakukan might one day find out that they published some unauthorised articles about some of their series years ago. It's so... so... annoying and stupid.
1525  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Do games need to be good for them to sell well? on: March 28, 2011, 03:20:30 PM
No, all they need are a popular name (Final Fantasy), a popular motiff (Modernized war, day-to-day thug life, sports), or a popular singer/band backing it (Guitar Hero Green Day). People are lame when it comes to purchasing games.

Nope, marketing is the right answer. As a publisher you need to make sure people buy your generic WWII-shooter or generic Tolkien-style RPG and not somebody elses. Shoving your title in people's faces can do that for you.

I remember being one of the younger people on many-a-forums.... Now... I'm in between... T_________T

I think I'm considered old by now and I haven't even managed to do 9999 damage yet... Maybe I'm more of a support character?

What do the women on this forum think when they see gamestation's slogan "Cheaper than your girlfriend"?

'You do not want me to spend my money in your store, so I'm going elsewhere.'

If most of your customers are males between the ages 15 and 25, then yeah, it makes sense to make sure your store appeals to them. Scaring off anyone who isn't a heterosexual male age 15-25 is a pretty crappy business strategy though.

Quote
Or when the people calling the shots in the big publishers say "There's no point thinking about catering to a female audience with games like shooters or RPGs - it's just not their thing."?

That bothers me in the same way as Gamestation's slogan. What's wrong with me spending money on the games you make? You don't have to cater to me, just don't make the game unappealing. Put in that metal bikini babe if you want, but also offer alternatives.


Quote
Or when in a game like DNF you have to "capture the babe", slapping her into submission as you carry her to the base?

On one hand it doesn't really bother me. Duke Nukum is a silly, immature game and taking even one polygon of it seriously is a waste of time. On the other hand, there are still plenty of men who do take it seriously, kind of. To them it's normal to treat women like objects. It bothers me that the developer would include that mode knowing that appeals to people like that.

Quote
It feels like it's fine to be a woman in the industry, just don't speak out about it and keep quiet.

Depends on who you work for. [N]Gamer only has two female writers (out of sixteen), but we don't feel out place there.But I wouldn't want to work for Power Unlimited. Most of it's readers are teenaged boys and we would feel like the uninvited girls in the boys' treehouse there.

Conventions can be quite awkward. Last time the higher-ups decided we needed boothbabes, so there were boothbabes at our booth. Most of our visitors weren't even interested in them, so they just kind of sat there being pretty and bored. It felt so weird. I was there without getting paid for it, contributing to our booth by talking with and playing against readers. They didn't do anything other than wear a short skirt and wear pancake make-up and the higher-ups considered them to bemore important than me. It made me wonder, would they pay me if I went there dressed like a whore?

We're thinking of hiring some good cosplayers instead next time. Playing a game of Super Smash Brothers Brawl against Link and taking a picture with him afterwards sounds like a lot more fun than looking at bored boothbabes.

I hate when cosplayers clearly "don't try". x(

In terms of minor pet peeves, just remembered one when my mum and I were brushing our teeth.  I hate the people who brush their teeth with the water running the whole time.  I thought you only need the water for that once...when you're rinsing.

You need water on the toothbrush to activate the toothpaste. It's like wetting your hands before applying soap. It still WORKS, you just don't get good coverage.

I thought that was just a myth. Atleast that what the dentist told me.

I actually play into Tomara's.  I put a bit of my water on the brush, it softens the bristles up a bit.

I guess that makes some sense in some cases, I guess.

I heard the water-on-toothpaste thing makes the minty flavor go away. I tried it and it doesn't work. What's wrong with mint anyway? And if you don't like it, why not buy toothpaste that tastes like something else or has a very mild mint flavor?

I'll just assume we mean the same thing.
My first message was more akin to sarcasm, but there is reason enough to worry. You know what corrupts? power. Males have abused power. I'm just saying lets not trade a tyrant for another.

- Big fat smelly Germans who sell bootleg merchandise.

Where are you? Can't say I've seen that ever over here.

The Netherlands. It's always the same company, they're at almost every Dutch convention and the people in charge of the dealerrooms all know some of their stuff isn't always legit, but it's hard to actually do something about it unless they're caught in the act. Evidence always turns up too late (as in: someone goes online after the con and discovers they bought a very convincing fake). It's one of the not-so-nice parts of Dutch animeconventions.

The fat mermaid is worse though. Our little both was next to her's at Chibicon 2010. She was dressed in a school uniform that was way too small. Oh, and keep in mind that this woman is in her forties. It was like 95 degrees in the dealerroom. At first it didn't seem too bad. Sure, we had to refill our canteens every hour or so, but as the day got hotter... well, the smell was... was... it was horrible. Then she happily announced that her butt was very sweaty and sticking to the chair. Because, you know, her skirt wasn't exactly long enough to sit on.

It annoys me when people pour water over the toothpaste on their brush. It just doesn't make sense.
