VF5 videos

The server of Tokimemo Online has problems, and the beta 2 had to be stopped for a while.
Speaking of which, next month will see the release of the new Angelique, Full House Kiss 2 and Tokimemo GS2. Weird.

Lots of rumors about the PS3 being pushed back to autumn.

Taito+Square+Enix = SQEX.

Kutaragi time.

Yamibito cosplay

A Blu-Ray disk movieshould cost slightly more than a DVD did when the format first came out in 1997.
It's still too early to talk about a minimum price, they say.

3 colors for the DS Lite
Still no purple.

Nintendo still has trouble to meet the NDS demand of the japanese market.
They are too busy counting the zeros in their bank account, I guess.

And because a random news thread wouldn't be complete without a delay of Zettai Zetsumei Toshi 2, here it is.
The Hague wonders if the game is not already complete and Irem is just waiting for a huge earthquake to kill thousands of people to release the game.

The Enamel Navy has possibilities. It's not black -a color far too played out in electronic gizmos- but it's still dark enough that it will show off any dirt or fingerprints that get on it.

Hardware sales dont translate directly into good earnings. But they've been selling software like hell so they must be counting zeros.

Thanks for posting VF5 Vids! I've seen most of them! I'm actually hoping they fix some of the animations though, like the animations of characters falling needs to be redone IMO.

I currently have a metallic blue DS, and I'm thinking that I might trade it in for a DS Lite. I'm hoping for a red or even a flesh-coloured limited edition to come out.

Kobayan has a short report on the VF5 test : information on the other new character, Irene, using the monkey fighting style.

She relies on fast movement, rolls, interupting attacks, faints, and so on. She seems quite different from the rest of the cast, and very interesting.

Actually, if I recall correctly, Namco is already merged with Bandai since last year...

But I honestly think Namco should merge with Kaneko, so we could peek at Taki as a hidden bonus character on a supposed Gals Panic'06. *sigh*

Two chaz-powered random things :

The first Tecmo game on Revolution will be Pangya, and it will be released with the console.

In the meantime, Hudson loves the 360.
Love can be destructive and painful.
I don't care, I never liked Bomberman to begin with.

Then :

It is forbidden to sell or lend GTA to minors in Nagasaki.
This is the first time it happens in Kyűshű, but it was already the case in Kanagawa, Chiba, Kyôto and

DS extravaganza :

DS tuner. This year, no release date/price.
Pictures

DS Browser : in June, 3800 yen, made by Opera, the browser will be in a DS card, while a memory card will fit in the GBA slot. The ATOK system will allow to write in japanese directly on the touch screen.

The DS meets the PSP versatility, but the add-on politics allow a substancial price difference, and a much clearer image : it is a game console that can do other things, not an all-round machine that can also play games.
Conclusion : 10 million DS this year is a possibility
The GBA needed 30 month to breack the 10 000 000 barrier.

It's Bomberman for the 360 public, or what Hudson thinks it is.
Those 360 people must like FPS, so Hudson made a "First Person Bomber" mode, with a different camera (not a FPS camera) and a life gauge.

A LIFE GAUGE.

You know, it's been really interesting following the development of O-kami these past couple years. It's like somebody at Clover came up with a cool character design and graphical style, but nobody was really sure how to actually make a complete game out of it. First it was just a glorified tech demo, then an adventure-platformer type deal, now it's taking pages from Devil May Cry and Onimusha with the combat system...not that there's anything wrong with that, believe me. They're playing to their strengths, and you can't really fault them for that.

Maybe Shinji Mikami's team saw what was going on and said, "Look, let us show you how to do this. Step aside and take note." I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall on some of Capcom's dev meetings.

All that said, with the right marketing, this game could be as big as Resident Evil. No exaggeration.

I just had the strangest dream.

There was this... person ? that was, if I recall correctly, Nippon Ichi Software. Like, not the boss or the creator of N1S, but the very incarnation of the company.
So, N1S was somewhere in some sort of Bambi-landscape, with lots of flowers everywhere, and it was continuously giving birth to all sorts of wide eyed animals.

I don't remember how, but Brandon found out where it was, and witnessed the miracle. So he called Pollyanna and myself. I took the plane just for this, and in the meantime, Pollyanna had plenty of problems in the forest, a place that really didn't match her city lifestyle.
After her antics were sorted, we all gathered around N1S, just to see it die, and all the animals cried with us.

Also, at a point, it was revealed that Pollyanna was born in 1957.


And that's why I decided to swith to the dealer across the street.

Nintendô should release 4 Pokemon games in 2006.

As you may have seen, some analyst says the PS3 would cost $900 to produce, and Sony of course disagree. They also still say the console will be available in spring, while some pessimists see it reaching the US or Europe in 2007.

I saw this information somewhere too. The socialistic side of me wants to herald this news as proof of the game industry's attempts to screw the consumer over (as seen by the Xbox 360 pricing and the new standard $60 per game MSRP). The rational side of me, of course, wants to take the news with a grain of salt. The Sega fan in me makes me miss the gold-old days.

As Japanese analysts noted over at CNN the price of the PS3 is more important at this point than the release date, especially since the 360 launch didn't exactly set the country on fire.

The virus of liberalism — a marxist-commie-racist-liberal-progressive- demokkkRAT-socialist-bigot-nazi-degenerate-leftist-subhuman-lowlife-deviant-filth — will soon render America into a third-world entity, if it isn't soon utterly and completely destroyed. The left's constant attacks on Evangelical Christians, Conservative Catholics, and Orthodox Jews are not new, but have been ratcheted-up in intensity, over the past few months. Make no mistake about it: the "hard lunatic left" hates America, its values and morals and will do anything it can to destroy them. Lib-dem trash love terrorists and will side with them over America, anyday. Lib-dem garbage hate America's Military, our Finest. This is a 50-year, ongoing culture war of now epic proportions. It is a battle for the very heart and soul of America. Liberal-demokkkRATs can't handle the truth; they covet and adore the double standard. They want to shut-up all Conservative voices, everywhere. Heck, they're even throwing pies at Conservatives! Desperate little verminous subhumans, filled with hate and violence, aren't they? Abortion has become the (un)holy sacrament of liberalism. And those who don't abide in that murderous sacrament are under daily attack, by deviant, degenerate liberal, subhuman garbage. The Party of Death™ are murderous vermin, feigning caring, but rejecting the sanctity of human life. But just let some spotted owl or reclusive snail get "endangered", and all eco-tree-hugger-wacko hell breaks loose against normal American society. The hate-filled rhetoric of the wacko leftists has neared criminally-actionable, and will get even worse in the days, weeks, months and years to come. The party of the people? Wake-up America; liberals and demokkkRATs were never the party of anyone, except socialism, communism, anarchy, nazism, abortion and judicially-legislated death. It's an illusion of the worst kind, and almost half of America bought into it. It was the US House and US Senate Republicans who helped LBJ enact The Civil Rights Act of 1964, not the liberal-demokkkRATs, who were full of KKK members at the time: Robert Byrd, Strom Thurmond, Tom Heflin, J. William Fullbright and many dozens more. 'Nuff said.

Not really, because the small size of the DS lite could bother some people, and the buttons are far from popular.

Also, BandaiNamco swallows Banpresto.

Or something like it, I don't know, I never quite understand the fusions and absorbtions things, and I thought Banpresto was already part of Bandai before Namco. Oh well.

The new head of marketing (our equivalent of Reggie) at Nintendo France is quite refreshing, from a first long interview he gave (in french). He replaces Fischer, who became the new head of marketing at Ninty Europe. It's the first time we see a guy not ashamed to admit most people at Nintendo have absolutely no clue about Nintendo Japan's plans, or to laud games from other systems such as Wanda or Katamari Damacy. His two "favourites games of 2005" were Bio4 and Ouendan. Interesting tidbits of the interview:

- To the surprise of Nintendo Japan, Europe is the market where Nintendogs sold the most.

- Revolution is still a codename, officially.

- Nintendo is still concerned about the European market's acceptance of the revolution concept and plans to push the DS a lot there in 2006, in order to "educate" the market.

- Nintendo Japan noticed that most people who started playing the DS with Otona no DS Training did not stick to "casual games" and became regular gamers after a while, buying the same games as longtime gamers.

- Nintendo Europe's strategy is quite fucked up by England, which develops very different trends and needs than the rest of Europe and is closer to the American market in many ways. According to him, England is also the only European market where the Xbox is (far) beyond the Gamecube.

- Nintendo's european audience aged with every new product they launched since the N64. France is in a very peculiar position with an even older user base's average age than the rest of Europe, explaining specific efforts of promotion and translation for that market (and indeed I think Baten Kaitos sold quite well here). In 2005 and for the first time in France, three GC titles were in the year's overall Top20 of best software sales (Bio4, Mario Smash Football, Mario Power Tennis).

- The Pokémon craze lasts longer than even they had planned (huge success for Pokémon Emerald), and so they are evaluating how to deal with that intelligently (Translation: shitload of Pokémon games coming).

- He doesn't know shit about the upcoming games because Nintendo Japan won't tell anything so the interviewer could have prevented from asking him seven times questions he couldn't answer.

[edit] forgot one tidbit

Cool!

Also, gamespot has an interesting bit about a patent that hints at some new things for the DS.

Could be turn out to be nothing... but interesting nonetheless.

Say goodbye to Fan-made Tecmo figures.


As usual, one of Tecmo's best selling product of last year was yet another DOA prodct: The 1/6 scale painted model of Kasumi by Max Factory. The thing sold out crazy on its first shipment. If you were late in picking it up, you had to get ripped at second hand stores.

So it wasn't surprising that Max Factory made additional manufactures of the figure Twice, which is pretty rare. Max Factory also released two models in different colors, one being limited to purchase through Tecmo's official but disturbing fanclub program only.

Of course, the market gets saturated when you overdo it, and the Kasumi figure's price quickly dropped to about 3,000 yen at many shops. Which is like, a 60 percent discount or something close.

Anyway, I think I've proved my point that figures were good business for Tecmo last year. After all, who wouldn't want a 1/6 scale Kasumi in their house, which by the way is pretty damn big and pretty damn bulky because when you come to think of it, it's just a sixth the size of a real Kas.. egh, nevermind that demented comparison.





Now, something seems to have come up this year.

No Kasumi figures at Wonderfest 2006 Winter.

I thought it was just because people got sick and tired at looking at all those leftovers in stores, but as it turns out, the event's host Kaiyodo announced that there won't be any more one-day licenses for Tecmo.

One day licenses is the backbone of Wonderfest. They allow creators to sell their fan-made figures based on company products without worries of getting sued, because they've got official permission to do so, just for that single day of event.

Kaiyodo made the announcement just a few days before the Wonderfest, and it's a bit cryptic whether the decision was made on Tecmo's side or Kaiyodo's side. Nevertheless, one thing is clear: There'll be no more fan-made Tecmo figures allowed at Wonderfest from now on.


I can only make speculations that Tecmo figured out how that figures sell well, and they've got too greedy. Anybody have any other suggestions?

After the surprise success of Radirgy on DC, MileStone will release two different versions of the game, Radirgy Generic on GC and Radirgy Precious on PS2.

Both game will feature the original arcade game and the score attack mode, plus an original mode on GC for high score maniacs, and an original mode on PS2 very, very hard.

Good move. And good knowledge of their audience.

Games released on the 25/05.

I almost want to buy this for GC, but I haven't heard many good things about it.

I'm curious what this game will be called if it gets an NA release. Radilgy, Rajirugi, Rajoojywoojy, etc.

Did he mention anything about Ouendan getting a European release? I heard a rumour about that, and I'm hoping it's true. Even though it'll mean I'll be buying a second copy of the game.

I've been waiting SO long for this I could cry. I'm sad that there's no "Tamayura", but I'll take what I can get.

Why ? Is there something particular in this one ?
I don't play online, and if I recall correctly, the game is uninteresting offline, is it ?

Either way, for those of you who played Nanaca Crash, the PS2 version of the moto neta, CROSS†CHANNEL ~to all people~ is being re-released at 2800 yen

Oh, and while I'm at it : Nate, I didn't have the time to answer your mail, but hehehehehehehe, hehehehehe, hehehehehe, hehehe.

Why don't you play online? Is it just a "personal rule?"

MH/MHG were both highly boring offline. Well, not so much boring as pointless if you didn't plan on going online eventually. One might say the same thing about MH2...and you'll still be missing a lot of wonderful things if you don't play online (and some gamplay elements are frustrating when you're playing alone), but it's a perfectly viable and decidedly fun offline game as well.

I got the Japanese one to go through the offline game (you can "win" it this time) and to play online if they don't release it in America. I can easily say it's one of my favorite, if not my #1 favorite game ever.

It just doesn't appeal to me. And my experiences with Ragnarok or Diablo did nothing to prove me wrong.

Ahhh. Well, I can't say my experience with Ragnarok sold me on online games either. My experience with MH was mostly good, but I still had my share of idiots who had no intention of going on quests (just hanging out in "town" where there's nothing to do) and men who didn't wear pants. At first, I just thought they were being funny, but no fail, every time, the no pants guys completely sucked and spoiled everything for the team.

I guess if you have no intent of playing it online, I can't really recommend MH2. It's not that it isn't fun offline, but it's more of a "mindset" thing. MH is a very masochistic experience. It frequently belittles and humbles you, but when you succeed, then you feel like you really accomplished something. Both of these feelings are fun to share with a team. It's good to laugh at other people's misfortunes (or share your own) after a long run of solo-suffering.

Also, there's anotehr level of gameplay in a group and the joy of showing off your character's costume. Even as I'm playing offline, I think about these things as possibilities within the game itself. So, I think...without seeing it that way, I can't recommend the game as much.
