Ugh; it's a shame because the game looks to be an improvement overall against previous entries. Doubt I'll even buy the 'regular' edition though. Not wanting a dime of my money to support this kinda PR crap that gives gamers a bad image.

Why not get it used?

I think this one's a better contender for some sort of weird bubble shoes, midriff, some S&M belts, and...whatever the fuck gloves.

Well I haven't had an erection in almost 3 years now, so it certainly isn't about the sex appeal for me.... I am a huge fan of all this crap but NEVER would I EVER claim it is meaningful, or anything beyond fanservice for that matter.... I do adore these games for very shallow reasons and that I will gladly admit. It is bright, bubbly and makes me happy in a nostalgic way that reminds of being a kid again I guess... Its hard to express really, but its all about the visual aesthetic of it all for me.... Maybe... Okay surely, I'm just weird.... but come on, there has to be some other folk out there that just happen to like the stuff because it oozes some of the most beautiful, albeit cliche and over done, anime-esque graphic to grace console gaming..... Even as big of a fan as I am though (and I am a freakin' ridiculous fan of these admittingly poor titles), once again, to claim they've got any type of appeal beyond that is sort of absurd I suppose.... I feel like fans create a worse stigma for this stuff than the actually games, products or bonus material itself....

You know, I can actually respect that.

People like what they like.  It's harmless fantasy.  I can't help but feel that some people are a little too eager to stigmatize others over stuff like this.  It's just drawings, guys.

That said, it's not so much the sex or fanservice in these games that bothers me so much as the mindlessness of it all.  The development seems so forced and cliche.  And if the rest of the game doesn't measure up then why are you playing a game at all instead of reading manga or watching anime or something?  I find bad gameplay pretty intolerable.

I would actually welcome more well-written sex scenes in games, but that's pretty damn rare.

Not a bad idea actually. If future videos of the game show it to be worth-while I might make this the first title I go out of my way to get a used copy thereof.

Nothing good came from Ar Tonelico Qoga. It was just a bad game. I would have beaten it just for shits and giggles if it weren't for it being a rental. Sad, really, I was pretty close to the middle of the game. Same for Agarest Zero, got beaten by rental timeout.

Oh god, this discussion is reminding me of one of my immediate beefs with that Lufia 2 remake (others since followed). Only Selan's design was what I considered "improved", the rest looked like they took a massive downgrade in the fashion department since they all pretty much went from a variety of generic 90's swordsmen, an elf, a merchant, and a noble's daughter to a biker (Maxim), a construction worker (Guy), some random J Pop star on her day off (Tia), Dekar if he visited Japan recently (Dekar!), a gun slinging priest (Artea), and Doc Brown (Lexus).

The way this series has been marketed makes it less like a game and more like a, uh, something that isn't a game. Insightful, huh?

Seriously though, if you want a dakimakura or inflatable girl/doll/pillow thing then buy it separately. It's not a lot more expensive, far better quality, and you don't get a crappy game that takes up shelf space with it.

Simply fabulous. Even the Move-based massaging mini-game didn't faze them past a T for Teen.

The Japanese economy hasn't been so good for a while and small studio need to put a lot more effort in appealing to their customers.
Of course, in Japan, appealing to your customers as a smaller game studio kinda means putting as much sexuality as you can.

Well I haven't had an erection in almost 3 years now

A) Too much info, B) maybe you should see a doctor about that, and C) perhaps your ailment is being afflicted by the very thing you're defending.



E:F;B!

I unfortunately I have to see doctors far too often and they are well aware of my condition... or more accurately a side effect of how  hormonally retarded I am as a result of my condition.... I was diagnosed with, when hospitalized for a week a ways back..... ready for this one.... "Non-renal metabolic alkalosis, with a standard anion gap hypothyroidism, indicating failure and malabsorption".... long story short, most foods are like poison to me, my diet is limitted as hell, I can't get it up, I lost like 60 pounds, and my central nervous system occasionally feels like there is a cannon being shot through it...... all that aside, the worst part is I have to take a loop diuretic in dosages twice that of my 87 year old grandmother or I swell up like an italian sausage to the point where I experience pulmonary edema..... I have to see two seperate sets of doctors because the ones in my area are only competent enough to take my bloodwork every few weeks, while the others I correspond with are specialists a state away.... They claim that ultimately what has really occured is not hypothyoidism per se' but more or less my thyroid "shut off" and most of its functions in regard to digestion had been assumed by my hypothallamus.

..... now given all that, you can see that erections really are the least of my troubles.... quite honestly I've found my complete lack of sex-drive to be awesome.... you have any idea how much money I've saved without having a girlfriend for the last 3 years? or how much time I've been able to devote to my career and gaming? in other words, the way I see it now, the loss of my ladibo has been the only bonus is this mess...

...let this be a lesson to all the kiddies reading this by the way... take care of your body.... don't abuse the hell out of your body when your young and you won't feel like your 26 with your 65th birthday on the horizon....

But that is enough of that, back on course, the topic is not "Klyde's Pickle" and I don't mean to turn it into such :)
