Final Fantasy 7 brings me back. I was too stupid as a kid to get much further than Midgar so that entire section was practically the whole game to me. Blew my little retard brain.

I just don't score it any additional points whatsoever when sexual images are interwoven into a game for no reason. The buxomness of these women isn't anything to do with the story, they just come from a universe where all women are in someway like that.

So? A lot of elements can be put into a story for no reason other than themselves. That doesn't make them any less interesting. You can take almost any form of fictional world and find countless impractical elements that still lend themselves to the story through their own merits.

Broad chested men aren't sexual just simply for the fact that they exist.

I concede that the character-molestation menus of Dragon's Crown are a bit much.

And a bit hilarious:

I didn't know your history or reasoning beyond not wanting others to see it when reading your review. All I had to go off of was the review itself, as will most readers. When you say the game would give the wrong impression to your friends, the context of your personal life is not apparent.

We can respectfully disagree on the art. As an artist myself, I find the call for censorship from critics (not saying you specifically) detrimental to art and the idea of video games as art. Just as very tasteful games have their place in the industry, games like Dragon's Crown should have their place as well, perhaps not in the hands of children (that is a debate for another day) but at least on the shelves of stores. It's hardly eloquent, hardly smut, but it does make one hell of an impression. That alone may be merit enough to at least respect DC's art style in some degree.

It also made one hell of a marketing blitz.

Exaggerated sexualization in fantasy is very common, yeah, but the extent Dragon's Crown takes it to almost feels like a parody of that. It's not like that kind of fantasy art is even common in video games these days. I can only think of a handful of examples, the barmaid from Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, perhaps the girls from God of War, that one boss from Odin Sphere, and Ivy Valentine and other various fighting game characters (Esp the whole Dead or Alive thing). Definitely nothing running rampant.

I'm just a fan of unusual, highly stylized art, which is what I see Dragon's Crown as. I'd probably say Dragon's Crown pulls it off more tastefully than other games where sexualized women might feel over the top or out of place.

I don't know why Robert's PS3 version review calls the art "polarizing."

It's not like there are many fantasy games that pull off this kind of 2d art with extreme examples of the male and female bodily figures. Dragon's Crown is very unique in that regard.

Mr. Steinman also needs to be more comfortable and confident with himself and not be embarrassed what his friends think about the video games he plays.

Lmao @ the writing. Literally engrish. "I'll get my equipments."

Not really impressed overall but good luck to em.

It's not that reasonable to give corporations the benefit of the doubt, especially for things like price increases. I agree that prices need more variability. I'm not against the reselling of roms by Nintendo. I just think they should include the new baseline of services, at the very least being account-linked instead of console-linked with the ability to use that rom between devices.

I'm hearing a lot of mixed things! Some impressions would be highly appreciated.

I guess we'll see what the sales say in the end. It may turn out that people don't care that it was $10 and a rom dump. There are very few people that I've noticed on forums or message boards complaining "Oh, I can just play this on an emulator for free."

It's not really about being able to pirate it or not, it's about adding a sense of value and effort in an older product. We all have a sense of what we feel value is worth to us as gamers. Earthbound is a case of Nintendo toeing the line by increasing the standardized price.

43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Earthbound now out on Wii U VC (seriously) on: July 28, 2013, 03:17:05 AM
It's not even their standard price of an SNES game though. Nintendo is literally nickle and diming for $2 more. There's no cross platform support or account system or cloud saves or anything. Literally a complete romdump of a nearly 20 year old game with nearly zero effort.

Why Nintendo gets a free pass, I do not know.

I got a code for this like a month or so ago. If anyone wants it just PM me. Dunno if it's still good.
45  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Is the PS3 Super Slim worth it? on: July 27, 2013, 05:44:18 PM
Holy shit that's a good deal. A better deal than the damn system I got, for sure.

I got a slim so I could jailbreak it though so hopefully the model I get (refurb) is capable of that.
