Identity politics are kind of mess these days, so it's pretty hard to say how games should really handle sexuality. There's lots of bitching and moaning from multiple vocal minorities, but not much in the way of sensible solutions.

Apparently Robert Johnson is really tough to play on guitar. Wish I knew something about that, but I grew up playing piano.

Explain this: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?hl=en&biw&bih&q=cache:LPl9M2lI7jQJ:http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/english/doc/2005-03/05/content_421986.htm%2Bwas+scooby+doo+made+by+Korean+animators&gbv=2&&ct=clnk
From what I can tell it's just an outsourced gig where all the creative input is done in the US and the Korean studio just adds the finishing touches onto the animation side of the product. I'd hardly call it a "Korean" cartoon, though. That's like saying certain Toyota models are American cars because they're manufactured in stateside factories.

P.S oh and btw, just to let you know The Simpsons is/was made by Koreans and that turned out to be good
What? That show was originally animated by Klasky Csupo and then Film Roman - both American studios in California.

Keep the coolness, I also think most modern anime are stupid: it doesn't matter if it is either fanservice or some critic view of the world, it is uninteresting for their audience. :)
Yeah, Sturgeon's Law is in full effect for anime nowadays. Business and economics have a lot to do with that. The 2008 recession hit the industry like a ton of bricks, apparently.

hell i'm pretty hyped for MGSV TPP despite the fact the PS3 version has draw distance issues
Dude, don't settle for a shitty last gen version of MGS5. Missing out on the righ-res 60 FPS action is not worth it whatsoever. Save up and get a proper version of it. I guarantee you the experience will be ten times better.

Just for info, FF7 had 3 CDs but the game itself actually fits in 250 MB of data, and each CD has 400 MB of videos which mostly differs themselves from a CD to another CD just because they contain FMVs of different story parts of the game. So without FMVs, FF7 would have fit 250 MB, only 4 times more than the largest N64 game. Your point still stand of course, I'm just pointing out the difference is not as tremendous as it first sounds.
It's amazing how much data you trim off a lot of Squaresoft games when you get rid of pre-rendered videos and such. I was kind of shocked to learn that Vagrant Story only took up 96 MB of data on my PS3 and FFT: War of the Lions, despite adding MORE content to the PS1 version AND having more pre-rendered cutscenes to boot, was only 195 MB big.

If you think about it, Squaresoft could have gone multi-plat during that generation. If Capcom could compress RE2 onto a cart without making it total garbage, Squaresoft could have probably made some great games on the N64.

Probably cause Sony entered the console industry and shoved its gigantic market power dick down Nintendo and Sega's throats.

Other reviews that I recommend by him are Majora's Mask and Super Mario Sunshine.

I've watched most of his Zelda stuff and I'm going through his Metal Gear stuff right now. I can only imagine how big of an orifice he's gonna tear MGS4, haha.

@Disch The thing is, Dark Souls I is the only game in the Souls franchise to have that kind of progression. Dark Souls II is a lot more linear and independent of key items while Demon's Souls has a hub world that lets you go to the starting point of every area in the game once you've beaten the Phalanx.

So no thanks.  I'll stick to Souls games.  Dark Souls is Zelda for grown-ups.
I've heard this comparison a lot and it's pretty inaccurate, to be honest. The two series have completely different focuses. LoZ is a series of action-adventure games driven by collectibles and an expanding utility belt of key items. The Souls games (and Bloodborne) are intentionally difficult action RPGs which focus on character customization and progress through mastery of combat and stat growth.

Also, do watch the Matthew Matosis videos when you get the chance. He may be prone to pedantic rambling, but there are a lot of good points in between all that.

I have never finished a single 3D Zelda.
OoT, Majora's Mask, and Wind Waker are all worth finishing IMO. The rest are kind of an acquired taste.

Oh ho ho... What's next, you're gonna say Dark Souls is the pinnacle of 3rd person dungeon crawlers?

EDIT: I guess I should post something less condescending after all...

OoT established a lot of precedents for 3rd person action-adventure that get taken for granted nowadays like lock-on combat mechanics, first-person aiming while using certain items, having a certain key item which establishes a central mechanic for the rest of the game, etc. Sure, it's clunky by today's standards, but so is literally every other 3D game made in the 90s by comparison.

Gaming Discussion / Re: What is the most disappointing game you played.
« on: September 07, 2015, 11:14:51 pm »
Probably Xenogears. I played it a long time ago while being in that JRPG and emulation phase that I'm sure a lot of you guys had at some point. A lot of people said it was this great, underrated Square title, but I thought it was an awful plot dump. Somehow, though, I still managed to sit through the entire game. Go figure.

Gematsu tends to be pretty good from what I've been told. If you're looking for leaks and stuff, though, you're gonna have to dwell in sell savory places like /v/ or NeoGAF.

Green tea, black tea, or just some plain old bottled water.

Whether you liked him or not, this was a pretty shitty way to go. Rest in peace, Mr. Iwata.

Well, there's good reasons why the game is considered one of the worst FFs ever. You've pointed out a few.

The series only gets brilliant with Oath of Felghana/Ark of Napishtim and then everything till Seven. Seven was terrible too sadly. Haven't tried Celceta yet because of that.
What did you find so bad about that one? I liked that game a lot more than Ys VI.

IIRC only Xenoblade received any special treatment in regards to its international release by Nintendo. The rest were released in North America by XSeed, who apparently didn't really care about Operation Rainfall and brought the games over for their own reasons.

Ah, Vagrant Story... a game I wanted to like but couldn't... All the freaking defensive QTEs got on my nerve after a while and I dropped it. :|
