2012-12-05 06:24Hiroi SekaiMultifaceted AND multieverythingelse too. Actually, someone exhibited the coolest part of that game on YouTube- the Mystic Artes. They're crazy flashy and awesome combos that you can execute if the conditions are met; that's a good enough video to show off the awesome battle system. The rest like characters can be seen through the movie (well, sans one annoying character and one awesome one).
I got it for the same price and still felt ripped off. Talk about linear, and talk about boring. Now you just have to buy XIII-2 and entirely feel like you have to kill yourself. JonTron made two videos to accurately depict how these games work. XIII and XIII-2...these are surprisingly accurate to how I feel playing them.
As for Sonic, Adventure 2 Battle and Generations were the only two 3D ones I actually found some fun in. Doesn't excuse the other shit dumps called games though.
Ah, I see. Sounds like it's an unavoidable thing that I'll have to go through it myself one of these days. Hopefully it doesn't hit me too hard, since I graciously have a warning and such. Who knows? It might turn out to be a decent hit for me or something.
Y'know, you're right. It's been forever since I suplexed a child out of a third story window. My payment must be Vanilla Coke. If you even think of bringing my Diet or Coke Zero, I will tear your esophagus out myself with my bare hands, you hear me? Vanilla.
Saving on the import charges huh? I think it all depends on factors of the shipping. Some companies are more lenient on the charges, and it depends on if it was shipped as a business transaction or a gift, as well as how long it stayed in customs. I recall paying about $80 extra on a synthesizer keyboard from way back when it crossed the border, but I get smaller things through the States with no charges whatsoever. I really, really hope it's here in the morning, since my laptop slowed down again today, which I thought was not possible.
2012-12-05 04:28Hiroi SekaiHow dare you, my mother was a penultimate human. I suppose the movie does have a bit more weight if you've played the game, but they run it as if you haven't before, so it's equally good, I think it's good. I absolutely love crowd anime watchings...once in a while. It contrasts from watching it alone all the time, and having people who are actually interested with you is fun, in my case at least.
Oh god, FFXIII, good luck with that. I assume the next time you go in, you'll get Sonic '06 (even if you don't have a 360)? Japan could be heaven if you budget yourself, but I guess ironically it'd also become a hell when you run out of money and see something you just have to have. Who needs two hands anyways?
Oh wow, I guess they wanted some consistency or something. Horrible sales or not, how was Umineko? I never actually got around to watching it because I had forgotten about it entirely.
It didn't arrive today either, this is killing me. If it doesn't arrive by the weekend, I'm going to have to suplex the first kid I see out of my bedroom window. I wouldn't ever care about Cherry Coke or anything else if they brought Vanilla Coke back. No seriously, I doubt I'd ever buy another type of drink ever again. There are some good cherry drinks out there though; Cherry 7-UP? Sounds interesting.
You lucky bastard, you got everything. I'm just sitting here with the wind chill frosting the insides of my window as I look at the PC parts I can't put together. At least I can still post music.
2012-12-04 21:22Hiroi Sekai...yes. The...DVDs.
I knew something was weird about that seller! He looked like he was pretty much getting off on how much money he got out of the sale.
I'll probably end up making a video about the game or something too. It really is one of the penultimate localized JRPGs, in my opinion. We saw the movie (it was my third viewing) at Anime Expo and everyone cheered at parts, it was awesome.
Wow, the differences. I guess I can't speak for everyone using the status of our GameStop spots. They efficiently get preorders to me, and I've never had a problem with them. As for Higurashi, my friend is actually half-Japanese, so his family makes trips over to Japan where he can enter shopper's heaven. No matter which title it takes here, it definitely sounds strange to me.
I took the processor for granted, man. Now it's just refusing to step through my door and allow me to put together this PC that'll literally be 1000 times better than this laptop. Also, I'm sorry. I freaking miss Vanilla Coke. They're sitting on a damn goldmine and they refuse to bring it back; instead they taunt us on Facebook by asking if we prefer Cherry or Vanilla Coke (both of which are missing here, by the way). We gotta drive to the damn States to even think about it, y'know. ;_;
It kind of is a tall order, asking for snow ON Christmas day specifically. But still, it's one of the best things that can happen on this planet, and I'd love to have one pass by this year. It's been way too long, I'm telling you. Oh, and now I find myself checking the clock to see if it's midnight here yet and if I can post again. -.-
2012-12-04 07:59Hiroi SekaiTell ya what, I'll just sell you a Death Note. Get on with it.
First thing you do is reach an arm out and realize your blanket is the same temperature as Frosty the Snowman. I didn't realize I bought a sheet of ice for a blanket.
Damn, that's unfortunate. The anime (well, film really) is a prequel to the events of the game, but it does a good job of fleshing out characters regardless. Problem is, there's a few characters in the game that are missing here, and they've been replaced with a few that aren't in the game. It's not a deal-breaker, but still. The movie IS a great way to witness the badassery of Yuri Lowell and the adorableness of Rita Mordio. It's a good watch even if you haven't played the game; it doesn't spoil the game at all. I suppose in the worst scenario I could easily detail parts of the game anyways.
That must have been it; I'm absolutely terrible with anime boxes so I'm not sure. That GameStop thing is surprising! Here it's really quite pleasant, with the customer service topping the bigger name places. At least in the GameStop here they stop to acknowledge you exist and offer to help with a damn smile. Go to McDonald's and people look seriously depressed, and go to WalMart if you want to find obviously overworked employees who look like they haven't slept in years. I did hear they work under strict sales quotas though, so that would definitely cause unwanted stress.
We just use it too much in every day life, so it becomes something we don't even find a need to think about. Gotta love Professor Frink and his 110% accurate predictions. Oh god, I didn't know half of the keyboard was ruined; do the world a favour and recycle it so they can compress it into the first batch of Vanilla Coke's re-release to Canadian soil.
I would kill for a White Christmas; we haven't had one of those in forever, man. Unless it's a snowstorm, snow usually just calmly falls, so there's less of the wind chill factor that shoves cold air everywhere. Thanks for that, there's still a good 27 days to go though, so I hope it stays golden. Or was it white? :3
2012-12-04 06:13Hiroi SekaiJust remember that premeditated murder=first degree. Just don't get caught. :3
Oh god, I know the feeling because I've cracked tiny bits of the window open when it gets hot inside to let cold air in, but forgot to slam it shut in the night. When I wake up my walls might as well be lined with icicles. It's even better if you have an old bug screen like I do; that thing does NOT work and its sole purpose for existing is to rattle unbearably at the first sign of wind.
Yeah, it's why I always have my retro games as backup; heck, I'm using some blank discs at the moment to get back my old Gamecube classics (well, kinda classics), but don't tell anyone! I would seriously recommend Vesperia if you go for one, but that depends on if you have an XBOX 360 or not, or if you can read Japanese. I absolutely adore the characters of Vesperia; give "Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike" a watch if you can. Yuri is the most badass swordsman ever (and as you know, all badasses are left-handed
like me), Estelle is the ditzy but actually somewhat competent princess, Repede is a dog that fights with a dagger and always has a pipe in his mouth, Judith rides dragons and can basically win the acrobatics medals of the world whilst spearing everything, and Rita is the cutest and bestest mage you'll ever play as. Freaking hell, I've got the game here, what am I doing?
Hmm, perhaps they did fix it! My friend rather likes Code Geass, so he something in what appeared to be a large holding box that had it spelled that way. Perhaps it was a manga collection then? I'm not certain on it, myself. I saw the "Revelaitions" thing last time I walked into GameStop; love how it was a big deal on Reddit forever and they STILL haven't fixed it. There's nothing I can really naysay about the changed title if it's copyright, so I'll end up just naysaying copyright laws themselves. :3
It's just a tiny squarish chip, man! This is what's preventing me from switching from slowdowns in YouTube when I check the blog to unparalleled speed in anything I do. Oh god, my mother's computer did that once; I was new to computers at the time, so I freaked out. You should give it a full reboot and then sell it off if you're not going to use it.
December 4 already, huh. It's been a rather slow winter, I'll say. I want some dang-ol' snow! It doesn't feel like the holidays. At least the music can accentuate the idea and keep me happy.
2012-12-04 04:11Hiroi SekaiMake sure you buy exactly six cans of it and spray it into the crawlspace.
It absolutely demolishes our utilities bill too, so that's another thing. But overall, it makes me feel like I don't want to do anything at all, so forget using it. I suppose over there you have no choice though.
It IS one of the most popular genres being played, so if it's with a few other people I don't mind getting into them a bit. Alone though, they might as well be drink coasters or something. The Tales series has a ton of titles yes, but to best evaluate one's interest in it, I'd recommend Symphonia (Gamecube), Vesperia (XBOX 360[English]/PS3[Japanese]), and maybe Graces F (PS3) for the quickest and most detailed experiences with the series. They're quite fun; the anime was inconsistent since they kinda shoved about 60-80 hours of gameplay into a small amount of time.
I remember that, it's been a while since I even had the chance to think about it though. There seems to be a lot of titles incorporating that within themselves too. Perhaps with Otome I was thinking back way too far- "girl" or "maiden" sounds more plausible.
Oh? I suppose I did only take a quick glimpse at my friend's collection, so I just saw "When They Cry". Still, the mixing of the two languages makes a weird separation that I still don't really get. As for the Lelouche thing, you've seen Code Geass, yes? It's supposed to be Lelouch, but for some reason the release says Lelouche. They did this with Resident Evil Revelations too, making a typo on the 3DS case spine that still exists today. I don't know if the Lelouche thing was a typo though. Also, if the Working thing was copyright-related, then I could definitely understand it.
I'm just missing my processor, man. It's the smallest piece and because of it I can't even start building. I'm really hoping it arrives when I wake up, because my laptop is starting to auto shut down recently for safety reasons or something. It's become really annoying. Hopefully that Bakemonogatari package gets to you soon too.
P.S. Sorry about the delay, I was just posting up today's article. The benefits of being a night owl. :3
2012-12-03 17:02Hiroi SekaiRaid? Maybe it's a North American thing, but every supermarket and medicinal centers sell them around here. It's kinda scary seeing the blue bottle around, sometimes lined up on the shelves in rows of 6.
Holy hot damn, that sounds freezing. I personally have a vendetta against the heater; it can't seem to control itself and just burns up the apartment and fries my brain. I hate when it's too hot, because it completely destroys my ability to think, and the lowest setting even seems to do that. I usually just wrap myself in a thick blanket- love it and it's free. I got my PS3 for JRPGs and imports alone, and I don't think I have more than 6 games myself. I rather do like the overall experience I've had with the games, but hot damn I still can't stand the controller at times. It's like it was designed for infants or something. When MY hands are too big for it, something's seriously wrong.
Well good, I can tick that off the Christmas list then. :3
I getcha, I don't even know how much I actually like the FPS genre; it's only entertaining to me when I'm playing online with a group I know AND talking to them on Skype or something. I think...Battlefield 3 was the only FPS I fully bought myself, whilst I borrowed my roommate's copies of anything else to see what they were like- once. I've always just liked Bethesda stuff for Western RPGs, like Fallout 3 and Skyrim; tons to do and you can do what you want in them. As for JRPGs, the Tales series is one of my favourites, along with Eternal Sonata, the Disgaea series (which has a pretty steep learning curve with large benefits), and of course there are some others that stand on their own. Gotta love well made JRPGs.
I'm pretty sure Sengoku was a period of Japanese history, whilst Otome has a sort of royal connection, like a protector. That translation makes it sound like some sort of crap mecha or pseudo-sci-fi series with big breasts or something. To speak on one you know, I just remembered spotting this in my friend's room, but I thought the translation of Higurashi was stupid too. Direct translation would be something like...When The Cicadas Cry, but it was released as "When They Cry", like it was saying "figure it out yourself, you twit" or something. It doesn't have a symbolic meaning or anything, they just changed the entire meaning of the phrase, maybe to save a few bucks on printing. Oh, and changing names that aren't Japanese? Really? They actually wrote it "Lelouche of the Rebellion" and went with "Wagnaria!!" as the titles. Stop. STOP.
It's pretty exciting in a way, yeah. One thing I can't stand is just how early these people decided to ring in the morning; I'm not going to get up at 6:42 AM, damn it. Then it gets sent to the depot halfway across town and I get to drive to it.
2012-12-03 08:57Hiroi SekaiYou want to go with the "Fast-Kill, Low-Irritant" can, it's in the blue bottle. You'll need about six cans though.
Oh yeah, I've done that a few times before. If one thing has stayed consistent throughout the history of video games, it's the durability of basic controllers. Well, have you held the PS3 controller? It's like 1/10 the weight of the PS2 controller- really not my thing. How much air time could you get with a controller out the window? It'd be pretty cool to find out.
Oh god, you really did know what I've been craving, I thought it was a bluff. Looks like you'll have to die. Emotionally.
I have a feeling that it's a mix of my biased nature on the subject and being a little too overplayed to me. Overall it's solidly made for sure and will definitely get better as it goes like you said. However, I'll need to still be overturned in my current standing on it. RTS is the same way for me. It's definitely the gameplay style of RTS games that I don't exactly like personally. Stuff like Fallout I did like though, for Western RPGs.
There are definitely some pretty good translations out there, but when it's bad, oh boy it's bad. The baka and test thing seriously bothers me; saying it aloud makes me feel ill. I don't mind them translating and making an English title for the English-speaking audiences, but it just seems so badly done a lot of the time. Wait, I'm not going to look this up, but "Asobi ni Iku yo!"? Doesn't that translate to like...Let's go play! or something like that? It's not even close. Let's just rename Shakugan no Shana to "Shana Strips". That'll be good, dammit.
I'm actually starting to setup a bunch of stuff around the table, but those last few computer parts are still being delivered. Gah, I can't wait. First the world, then anime panels!
It's one of my nice surprise shows of the season, that's for sure. Looking forward to seeing how much this arc is going to expand.
How dare you, my mother was a space.
2012-12-03 03:32Hiroi SekaiWell, you'll be glad to know your previous family perished in the Great Battle of the European Virus of 1426. Your current family was assigned to you by the government and is in fact your 187th one.
Well, my ragequits consist of me turning off the console and waiting for another time to play, so my controllers might live long enough.
C'mon, you know you don't have authorities where you live! Say those magic words.
I don't want to imply it's been over-hyped since I haven't seen the entire series yet, but it's kinda not as super crazy as I thought it'd be. But as I've said, I'm also biased on the subject, so I'm not sure. RTS is actually one of my least favourite genres, but Age of Empires II was good enough to bypass that AND my medieval filter, which astounded me. I suppose I just prefer JRPG settings where you can play through and actually complete at some point, but that's just me.
I guess you're right, didn't really think of much at that particular moment. I think it just happens when licensing companies do a really poor, half-assed job of translating and localizing titles. One that bugs me is "Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts". It's like they had to keep "Baka" in there, but the entire meaning of the title has changed anyways. Kiddy Grade's a good title too, gotta love that.
Don't fret, it'll work out, I believe. It's not like the goal is to lead America or something like that. But hey, gotta start somewhere, right?
I suppose in the crazy investigations, she's still the newcomer that has the least amount of experience, so the others stand out more. I'm really finding the series exciting overall, so I'm sure they'll use their remaining episodes to improve on things. As you mentioned too, the criminals are getting crazier, so it's getting much more interesting.
P.S. I find I'm posting these new daily songs at midnight on the dot.
2012-12-02 04:39Hiroi SekaiBah, curse your stone-cold heart. Go steal some love from a happy family or something.
I'm not exactly sure myself, looks like one day I'll have to find out. X2 was pretty difficult, that's for sure.
Okay okay, read my mind now. What am I thinking? And yes, it's not about the next ecchi series I'm going to marathon.
Ah okay. I went in just hearing that it's like the greatest series ever and found it didn't exactly bypass my medieval filter from the first few episodes, but I wanted to see if sticking with it would matter later on. I'll give it just a few more episodes before I gauge it against my own personal interests. The sex scenes are definitely overplayed; I was actually not expecting it to showcase that much, but I guess I'm used to this sort of turnout anyways. On that note, one of the few exceptions to the medieval filter was Age of Empires II.
I love it. We should just have a ton of random releases like this.
Good point. I'm still telling you we'll make it all happen someday; I wanna make it to a con panel at least once. :3
It's a great song, definitely. Today's track is up too. I think Kougami's one of the major focal points of Psycho-Pass, personally. I agree in saying that Akane is the relatable one though. I kinda like how they're making these crimes happen in arcs, slowly leading up to what's intended to be the big boss behind it all.
