NISA is the new Working Designs. You either love them for bringing over obscure Japanse RPGs, or you hate them for what they do the games they bring over.

I know enough Japanese to get me through some simple menu's, but there is no way I could play the avarage Gust game in Japanese. I can tolerate a few spelling mistakes and a sensible name change or two, but NISA really needs some quality control...

I remember the Xenogears scene and it felt strangely familiar. I didn't link it to Soylent Green, but to a Dutch urban legend. There's "frikandel" which is a popular snack food over here. The thing is hard to recognise as meat and a lot of people believe it contains cow eyeballs and pigsnout. Remind them right after eating and they sometimes turn green. While it's true that frikandel is made from leftover meat, the ingredients aren't that disgusting. It's mostly meat scraped from cow, pig and horse bones. The horse part is where the fun starts again. You know those horselover that claim they would never eat horse? Many of them eat frikandel without thinking twice. Showing them the ingredients list on the packaging is great fun.

Now Persona 4 yesterday... I made the MC go to the toilet, because that always made P3's MC happy and I wanted to see what it did in P4. Instead of feeling relieve, he started thinking about dinner. Then he found some rancid gravy. All sorts of nasty school toilet images flashed through my head and I almost had to run for the bathroom.

I tried playing the game on my laptop, because it looks like a fun little game, but there was quite a bit of lag. I guess I shouldn't have underestimated the system requirements, but it still took me by surprise. My laptop used to be a decent gaming machine and is pretty good as a PSone emulator (I use my own games, no worries), it only lacks a bit of RAM...

Perhaps I'll try your game on another PC later, because I'm curious what causes the lag.

I'm sad that in most cases, I'd be too old to save the world.

You can never be too old to save the world!
Option 1: Be something that doesn't age (if you still look like a teenager)
Option 2: Be that reliable party member (if you're older than 20)

Okay, that won't let you be the main character, but you can still do your thing. Look at Will from SaGa Frontier II, he's like 80 years old in the final chapter.

4a) Text fonts that are too small.  The NISA localized Gust titles are big offenders here.

Recent console Final Fantasies are even worse. I have a fairly small TV, but I can sit on my bed when playing Gust games. Final Fantasy X-2? When I sit more than a meter away from the TV the text becomes unreadable.

The problem is that healthy stuff tastes horrible to me.  :P

It is our nature to prefer sweet and fatty food above other food, thanks to evolution. Healthy food tastes good, as long as it is prepared properly. Many people look at vegetables and have no idea what to do with it. If you don't like the taste of one kind of vegetable, why not mix it with some others? Mixed veggies are awesome, especially if you mix some herbs or spices in for extra flavor. And there is also pasta, chili, "stamppot"...

Fuck that. Fruit and vegetables aren't expensive if you go to the market and buy what's in season. Canned vegetables are cheaper and more nutricious than microwave meatpies. There are plenty of healthy meals that cost less than £1 a person to make and you'll have leftovers! Mega pan three bean chili anyone? Eat 2-3 slices of bread for lunch or eat muesli with some milk and fruit.The only thing they need to do is use something other than the microwave to prepare their food! >_<

The PS2 version already had some slowdown and some game freezing bugs in the bonus dungeons, so I'm not surprised the port is unplayable.

Sonic and the Black Knight.

Someone had to. One reviewer had to make this noble sacrifice.
1585  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Money Saving Tip: Don't buy "Component" Video Cables... on: March 14, 2009, 03:11:58 AM
S-video is a bitch in Europe. It used to a common TV-out port for laptops and computers, but few European TV's actually support S-video (we jumped from composite to RGB, skipping S-video). The computersystems generally have the 7 pin mini-DIN port, which also has a composite output, but these cables are almost impossible to find. There are 4 pin ones, but most TVs can't do anything with that.

There are three ways to solve this problem:
1. Buying an expensive signal converter - €60
2. A small S-video t composite adapter, but good luck finding one... - €8?
2. Convert the signal to composite yourself with some soldering tin - €0,05

Connect 1 with 2 and 3 with 4 on the female side using small pieces bend in a U shape and you're done. You could do this to to the port on the back of your computer, but I prefer making some adjustments to a short S-video cable, essentially turning the cable in a cheap converter. 

9 out of 10 stores will recommend option 1, obviously.

There was an even better option. One of their worktables is in the middle of the store and I had my laptop with me (I had classes later that day, that's why I wanted the RAM in ASAP). It would have meant buying the RAM there, but it would have been worth it.

German Sailor Opening

And before that the fourth Saint Saiya opening.

I LOVE anime intro's! The songs practically saved my Lunar: Dragon Song experience.

I usually buy my cables at some... I don't know what to call it store in the next town. The guy sells everything from cute vacuumcleaners with smiley faces to A/V cables to bicycle parts. He has the cheapest HDMI cables in town, but they're often out of stock because they're so popular.

On the other side of the spectrum is an elitist computer store I hate with burning passion. Two years ago I went there because all other places were out of RAM and I needed some for my new laptop. 512MB RAM was €34 and I asked them if they could pop it in right away. The shop I normally go to always does those sort of things for free and since this store claimed to have great costumer service I thould they would as well. They said they couldn't, because adding RAM to a laptop was very complicated, the service would cost me €130. I told them women are not sub-humans, that I do in fact have a brain and that they could go fuck themselves.

I ordered the RAM online and placed it myself. Took me three minutes, five if you include the time it took to open the package.

I found out that, for whatever reason, my cousin has a PAL copy of Final Fantasy V Advance.  Borrowed it. 
Takin' french again next year and have a feeling that it'll be many times harder than grade 11 since I'll have to write french essays (which, imo, is quite a leap from writing 200 word little fairy tales and shtuffs.)  So yeah, I'll be playing it en Français. :P
Makes me wonder if the PAL versions have voices in french and german and stuff for games that have voiced cutscenes... it would seem unlikely though due to size limitations, unless they make many different versions for the European regions?  I dunno.

Also, I just read about some next game... Avalon Code...  I'm pretty interested, but didn't even know of its existence 'til today.  It, like, comes out tomorrow I think.

It depends on the game. Big titles often get dubs for all major languages. If those dubs don't fit on one disc the major countries will get their own version of the game. Niche RPG's, like half of what Koei publishes, are just the American releases converted to PAL with a semi-new boxcover. Maybe they'll include a multi-lingual manual, or maybe not.

Jade Cocoon 2 - reached the fourth level of all four dungeons. My monsters are pretty cool, but now every enemy wants to gang up on my bug-thingy, because he happens to have low HP. Stupid bugs.
