I saw Ant Man.

I liked it.

It says "Eleven".

1. Mass Effect 3
2. TES III: Morrowind + Tribunal/Bloodmoon

Went and played another character, went through the expansions this time. Combat was a lot less annoying this playthrough since I use swords instead of maces, and those actually let you move while attacking which doesn't make everything feel stiff as hell.

3. TES IV: Oblivion + Shivering Isles
4. Cave Story (PC)
5. Planescape: Torment
6. Shovel Knight
7. .hack//G.U. Vol. 1: Rebirth
8. .hack//G.U. Vol. 2: Reminisce
9. .hack//G.U. Vol. 3: Redemption

10. Deus Ex

Another one of those "games I should've played before but haven't" off the list. I enjoyed this one a lot and I'm sure I'll play it again using a different build. Probably helps I'm not really an avid FPS player so I probably didn't even notice, let alone mind, a lot of the clunkiness the game has with the shooting.

11. Bastion

Went into this one only knowing it got some glowing reviews and not much else. I liked it, but I didn't really think it was anything special. I did love the flavor text on a lot of the items though- whoever wrote all of it was good at being concise.

The glowy eyes and what looks like hexagons on the limbs are probably what make people think its an alternate form of Zygarde.

That, and the fact that that's pretty much what they've done since Gen 3. They made games that "starred" the third legendary which basically did nothing in the games before (Rayquaza, Giratina, Kyurem).

The yearly Pokemon movie has come out, and I'm sure it has a totally original and exciting storyline that doesn't involve Ash Ketchum saving the world from a super Pokemon.

I'm sure less important to everyone is the fact they did some teasing for a strange silhouetted Pokemon which looks similar to another existing Pokemon. There was also the appearance of something assumed to be a new Pokemon. GameFreak's nothing if not predictable- it's about the time they'll release their third batch of games for this wave of Pokemon and they'll start teasing the fanbase about the next generation. Guessing 2017 for the latter.

I enjoyed Pokemon X/Y a lot so I'm looking forward to another wave of furry creatures to add to my collection.
6  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Inafune's latest project The Mighty No.9 looks Mega Rocking, man. on: July 06, 2015, 05:24:16 PM
I agree completely, Hathen. I'd like to actually be able to play Mighty No. 9 before I support a new title from Inafune and Comcept. Also, since Mighty No. 9 was completely funded by the generosity of fans, they should wait and use the profit they make to fund the studio's next game. Or at the very least, try to fund it themselves.

So I slowed down and read the description a little closer, it seems like all the people reporting about this are leaving out something really important.

This thing they're kickstarting is in fact, a prologue game of some kind, and only a snippet of what the "full game" would be (they said it would be around 8 hours long). I'm guessing it's a lot like what MGS Ground Zeroes was. Apparently they're saying the full game would cost way too much to ask Kickstarter- when you think about it that's not really a surprise, they want to make an open world game and that can cost tens of millions in a first world country like Japan. Makes the $800k they're asking for make a whole lot more sense because there's no way you'd be making an open world game on that budget.

From the page:

Quote
This story has always been planned as a key jumping-on point for the universe, and we hope to use this small, but dense taste of the RED ASH universe as a foundation on which to build future content. Whether it's through additional funding, revenue from "The KalKanon Incident" sales, or teaming up with a publisher, this is a story we are determined to tell, and we want all of our backers to be on the ground floor for the creation of this new game universe.

It seems like it's basically them asking the fans to fund a pitch/proposal sort of thing. When put this way it does seem like an appropriate use of Kickstarter.

Unfortunately they really picked the worst combination of factors. People are going "didn't we already give you guys money" after MN09, June/July is like the worst time to launch a kickstarter, and on top of that they're making this right after people have already put their money into Yooka Laylee, Bloodstained and Shenmue. There's still plenty of time so I'll put some thought into whether or not I'll kickstart this one, I do hope they can make their initial goal at least.

all the nitpicking and the "why isn't this the way I want it" that I've seen with #FE

More like, "why isn't this what they implied it would be".

Sorry INAFKING, I'm not really feeling it this time. At least the Mighty No. 9 kickstarter had mock ups of what the game might look like (though the end product ended up looking a lot worse) in addition to their character and concept art. There was even a few shots of people working on the 3D models of Beck and whatnot. Here we got the character art and a bunch of storyboards (also what I'm guessing is Hochu Otsuka's voice which was the best part). Mighty No. 9's not even out yet and I want to know if that's actually a decent game before bothering to help you fund your next game (Though really they should be trying to fund their own projects now that they have actually made a major release). I get that you can't just have your programmers sitting around twiddling their thumbs while MN09 is entering post-production but I find it hard to believe Comcept doesn't have enough money for ~3 months before needing to make this sort of announcement.

Well sorry to get your hopes up, but apparently that site was from 2011 or something and the internet told me sweet lies.

Still, back in March CC2 did talk about working on three separate projects (Title 1: photo-realism, RPG, worldwide, Unreal Engine 4, physics-based rendering, Title 2: open world, Title 3: virtual reality) so I'm still thinking at least one of them will be .hack related in some way.

CC2's teasing a .hack project of some sort.

That girl looking really weird was something I noticed. I honestly can't tell if she's supposed to be black, white except covered with dust, or she's grey because she's a robot or something. The blue eyes and blonde hair are what throw me off I guess. Also, whoever did that coloring job got really lazy apparently because it looks like they just used a gradient fill-in for her face.
12  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Inafune's latest project The Mighty No.9 looks Mega Rocking, man. on: July 02, 2015, 04:32:53 PM
Eh. The big reason I was interested in Legends 3 was to see an end to the story. I always thought Lost Planet was a lot like what a modern Megaman Legends would play like.

I finished both seasons of Log Horizon.

It was okay I guess. Didn't care for most of the characters, the jokes are dumb and every time it seemed like things were going to get interesting the show decided to go off on some random tangent that goes nowhere. There's some really good ideas in the show and they're expanded upon slightly, and I wonder if there's better explanations for all this stuff in the novels or something. The show really didn't make me interested enough to bother go reading them though.

You guys are getting me really interested here, since I haven't gotten it yet myself. I didn't care much for the ARR story personally, just didn't care about any of the characters and it was "go stop the Primal" repeated 3 or 4 times interrupted by the some of the most awkward FedEx quests I've seen (I'll never stop making fun of it for interrupting the quest to stop Titan with "we need to throw a dinner party, go get some cheese from this dungeon").

That's a whole lot of words for someone to basically say "stop being excited about things I'm not excited about". Is there anybody who doesn't expect E3 to just be for big project reveals now, like it almost always has been?

It's amusing how he complains about E3 being nothing but commercials, but then turns around and says that the few parts that weren't he would've rather just experienced at home while playing the game, so basically nothing would please him. Just another self-important youtube personality taking up complaining as a full time job.
