Nothing I've seen of Demon Gaze looks particularly fanservicey to me, though I'll admit I haven't followed it that closely.  It does seem odd to me that was your first impression, though, because I have followed it somewhat and wasn't even aware that there was fanservice in it...
As I said it was a quick look, which included looking through the NISA store images which included stuff like this:

So images like this set off my fan service detector. *shrug*

Unless the Kickstarter starts picking up more steam, I don't see it reaching $1 million. I share your sentiments, though; if Sakimoto isn't involved then I don't think I would play the game.
Yeah odds of it hitting 1 million aren't looking too high right now.

Always have to wonder what exactly it is that makes or breaks a project on Kickstarter. This one I am thinking is suffering from an initial goal that was set higher than it should have been, at least in terms of momentum since there is no stretch goal momentum to speak of and it doesn't look like there will be the possibility of any until the last few days. Also I think primarily relying on Yasumi Matsuno's name might not have been the best advertising strategy, as I don't think a lot of people outside of the genre know it or care (hell I'm knee deep in the genre and my first reaction was who?).

The official opening has been put on Youtube.

And interestingly, Earth shows up for a second at one point, and maybe shows up once or twice otherwise. You can see Africa and South America clearly. I'm really curious what that's about.

Although it might be something dumb like we silenced our world.
Really loved the music for the opening. Then again I really love the vocalists Gust works with, so I suppose that isn't that big of a surprise. Visuals were pretty also.

= Rory is the season's punching bag.  Not sure how he bagged a girl as fine as Amy (the "Apatow effect").  I don't really see how they "work" together as a couple.
There is actually an episode where....oh crud that actually qualifies as spoilers considering where you are in the series doesn't it? Huh, well I guess the best way to describe it is that Rory is less of a putz than he seems. But yes he is the universe's punching bag. >.> Actually maybe that is it, he got to be with Amy to make up for how much it seems the universe hates him.

Beat the crap out of The Guided Fate Paradox final boss last evening. I liked the gameplay and some of the stories had something worthwhile to say, but the setting was a bit too much. Heavenly butlers? A cruel angel thesis made Sam Riegel god? (Wait, was that a haiku?) Why is Sam Riegel in every game I play anyway?!
Because he is in a tone of games. Comparing my backlist to his credits, he is in 4/7 of the RPGs I own but have yet to play......and I seem to have played 22 games that he has been in. Which I think puts him as being in about 10% of all games that I have owned.....scary.

Yeah yeah yeah... I think I will.  The comic is weird the first few pages in though...
Time to see what all the fuss is about anyways.  Is it going to wind down anytime soon though?  Not too crazy about starting stuff 3+ years befors it possible end-date (sorry Naruto, you were fun the first five volumes).
Oh hey I just figured out that when you said in the 70s you were talking about the video you linked to and not that you were in chapter 70-79 of Magi. x_x

And yeah the first chapter is a little weird, but it starts to find itself during the first dungeon arc. And then it really starts to pick up during the next major arc. I don't get the feeling it is near its final arc at the moment. I mean we have gotten to the point where most if not all of the major players in the world have been introduced, and one of the main characters has managed to fully master his power (which was a lot faster than I was expecting), but in terms of the overall arc I'd guesstimate that it is around the halfway mark. There are probably at least two or three more major arcs left before the final arc begins.

And hey you should pick up Naruto again! It has been in the (presumed) final arc for two+ years now. It has to be getting close to ending by now. And Bleach has been in its final arc for a year or so now (I think), so you should pick that up also.....well unless you want to read good stuff. Then stick with Magi and One Piece instead (actually throw World Trigger on the good pile also).

So I got an email last night from NISA about Demon Gaze preorders opening. I took a quick look at it and I'm not sure what I think about it. Seems very fan servicy, but I can put up with that if the rest of the game is good. I just don't really have a good idea as to whether the rest of the game is good. So anyone who has played the Japanese version that has strong feeling about the game not with standing the fan service? Or is that all that the game really has to it?
668  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdom Come: Deliverance on: January 24, 2014, 06:18:37 AM
Part of me thinks this looks good, while another part of me thinks this thing will get really boring (not a fan of open world). I'll take a look at it more later.

Whoo Magi! Now hurry up and catch up! :p

So I've made a bit of progress in Persona 2 Innocent Sin.....and holy crap this game is 20th Century Boys. It is just so weird. I mean I am enjoying it, but it is just sort of a weird sensation to see a similar story concept to 20th Century Boys (not the rumors part, but some other aspects of it). Mind you Persona 2 is 100x more batshit insane and they do go in completely different directions. But it is still weird. Enjoying the game overall though.

I saw that as well, I hope it reaches the $1,000,000 mark. Unfortunately, but as expected, the funding seems to have slowed way down.  They haven't hit $400,000 yet. Still, that they've even received as much as they have is excellent and gives me some real warm fuzzy feelings about the future of RPGs on a small scale.  There's still a market, you guys!

I've followed so many KickStarter projects and I can tell funding always slow down but the momentum rise again exponentially during the last days. Considering its promising start, the project can easily reach $2,000,000 or even $3,000,000. There are still 23 days to go ;)


I think you might be overly optimistic about the final total. Final two days generally give you about the same (maybe a little more) than the first two days. I haven't been keeping track of the day to day funding, but assuming 10k per day average (which I think is a little high) that would give the project 600k by the last two days, and the final two day push would put it around 900k, probably a little higher from people adding just because the funding was hit.

I thought the Rose-reaction was actually quite human for that particular incident and undeserving of the character-hatred it generates. I'll explain in metaphor but spoiler tag it anyway.

Code:
Say your favorite family pet dies. Dog, cat, doesn't matter; going to say dog for this example.

It's gone, you can't love it anymore, all those years of emotional investment are cut off in a snap.

Immediately someone pops up and says "Hey, I bought you a new dog that looks just like your dead dog. Here!"

It might bark like your dog. It might be the same breed. It might even prance the same, wag its tail the same,
and raid your toilet all the same.

But it's not 'your' dog. It will never be 'your' dog.

In time and with healing it will eventually be 'your new dog'. But to expect someone to just up and go
 'Oh, hey, new dog. All's cool!' on the spot, like a lot of fans expected Rose to do with Doctor 2.0,
...I don't think so.

Oh and fun factoid about that moment.

Code:
The Doctor technically gave Doctor 2.0 a piece of the Tardis to grow. So new Doctor and Rose get to have
their own parallel universe adventures. It's a scene that didn't quite make it into the final cut.


O_o That is the opposite reason of why I thought she got fan hate over that sequence....
Code:
The reason I'm familiar with her getting hate over the scene is because Doctor 2.0 whispers that "he loves her" and she immediately smooches him despite her previous protests over how it wasn't the Doctor. Making her come off as extremely shallow or something.

Also, the whole giving them a piece of the Tardis makes me hate the sequence even more. So I am glad that didn't make the final cut. God damn it Russel T. Davies, I don't like your Mary Sue. >.>

It definitely looks solid, and from the creator of Final Fantasy Tactics there's no doubt it's going to be a successful KickStarter campaign. I'm surprised to see most other staff members are Caucasian rather than Japanese.
That's because according to him all he is doing is the story and world design.

To be fair, we all do stupid things online at 6AM.

Well, I don't. I just go to Panera Bread, which is the stupidest thing of all to do at 6AM. Or any time, really.

... I used to eat their like every day :(

...... I think I'll go cry myself to sleep.
*checks clock to see it is 6 AM* So posting on RPG Fans is stupid? Huh good to know. :p

The time stamps are pretty screwy too.  I wonder if at 6am he realized he 'dun fuck'd up good.
That would require him to make that realization over the course of minute after not realizing how badly he screwed up over the course of 8 hours. Although I suppose he might have realized he screwed up after waking up and then decided, "If I'm going to fuck up, then I am going to fuck up royally." Kind of a stupid attitude, but I guess it is possible.
