Summon Night 1 then 2 on DS. What was that again ?

[Japanese link : An industry dominated by N and MS. It's still early to rule Sony out of the equation, but it's interesting to read Japanese media thinking about it.

Jesse Lackman says his son spends a dozen hours a week waging medieval combat across the dreary dreamscapes of computer games. Just don't expect to find Lackman sitting beside him battling ogres and dragons.

"It's just such a waste of time," said Lackman, 47, a power plant operator from Center, N.D. "I tell him, 'Do something that has some lasting value.'"


To think, at some point in the not too distant past Mr. Lackman was a young man, full of life and energy. The world was his oyster and his life held infinite possibilities. I wonder if it was a gradual shift or if he woke up one morning and suddenly discovered he had become a crashing bore.

I thought about making a topic for this, but for those of you with 360s, you can get a demo of Guilty Gear 2 on (Japanese) Xbox Live.

I take back everything I said about the game before. I don't remember what I said, but I take it back. The game is very...stressful to play and much more like an RTS than I imagined it would be. It's not really about "kicking ass and tearing through a crowd of enemies" like you might think.

It's sort of..."genre-defying". I could see it being tremendously fun in vs mode, but I can't really pass a verdict until I soak in the game some more. It's not especially easy to pick up.

Can you make a Live Account with region and address in Japan and get it, or will you actually need a Japanese 360?

Also, Carcasonne is a free download for the next day or so.

You should be able to with a US 360 unless they're blocking that now. I have a Japanese one and a US account. Anyway, I'm sure there are tutorials for it somewhere. I remember it being very easy.

A new loke test? And all characters?

Where was this? And more importantly...where have I been...?

My question though, is...does this mean that the game is still on schedule, or is that Spring release that am-net reported like a month ago still in effect? I mean, if it will make for a better game, then go right ahead, ASW. But all the same, the rest of us mere mortals who don't stand to get a chance to play the Arcade release will be left to wait for the PS2 port, and that can take any where from 6-12 months down the road...

There. I don't know about the second part of your question, though.

EDIT for clarity : I think spring is a reasonable date.

Either way, Tadakatsu is the same monster as it was in the last test (well, except the bug), but somehow Uesugi grossly overpowers him.
He hits hard, fast, and freezes.
Some guy had over 100 straight wins with him, and finally got beaten by... another Uesugi, for another endless string of ownage. At least they took care of the swarm of Yukimura fangirls.
Ichi sucks. Maybe she needs a lot of practice ? I don't know what hidden magical one-button-win move could make her survive 15 seconds against Hondam or Kenshinsama. Maybe her counter move? Doubtful.
Oda is nothing to write home about, beside an insanely powerful super antiair.
Toyotomi is a joke.


Oh, and the cryptic yusa nikki somehow seems to indicate the statuquo about 98UM is finally resolved, and an arcade version of the game could be released...? Hard to read through it. To say the least, there is no PS2 version coming before the end of January.

I've heard pretty bad things about Capcom's Fate game, but what was I doing talking to Fate ota anyway.

From the layout of the pre and post game screens to the battle between Zato-2 and Anchor Boy it looks as if Arc isn't moving too far out of its comfort zone. At least the addition of the elephant tank was a nice surprise.

According to Jason Arney from Namco Bandai, all versions of Tekken 6 arcade have been delayed to February 2008. This evidently includes the Japanese version, which was originally set to come out this month. A loketest is currently going to determine final tweaking for the game balance.

Also, according to certain Famitsu scans posted at jeux-france, Mokujin is in the game, though they do not offer any concrete evidence other than a character roster with his name at the end.

No no no...not boring. If anything, too exciting. I can't keep up with the game. It's kind of hellish. When I'm in control of the hell it's fun, but when I'm not it just makes me sweat.

I dunno...did you get to play the game "properly"? If you don't know what you're doing, then I can see the game being boring. It takes like... a good hour just to get the basics. The combo system is actually pretty decent and your success is highly dependent on strategy.

I'm not saying it's an awesome game, because I'd have to play it more...see if the system/certain characters are broken...see if it has as much depth as it implies and see how well I can get the game under control.

But...it's definitely not a boring beat 'em up, or anything like that if you play it "correctly".

I guess the game is just..."hard to get" and as a result "hard to get INTO."

I'm not 100% sure how the system works in the brief time that I played it but... in order to be able to get your guys to damage the enemy master ghost, you have to have a continuous string of captured nodes extending from your base to theirs?

Or is it just that the inevitable way that the two forces clash ends up creating such a situation?

If it's the former... I'm not really sure how the strategy for this is going to work outside of "what units do I need to beat those guys coming at me RIGHT THIS MOMENT", since it forces a sort of linear path through things... it'll be really obvious where your opponent's armies are at any time, just by watching the node status on the map.

But then, I haven't played the game much. Maybe there are tons of teleporting/flying units that I just don't know about that change this.

Have any of you guys played the PC game Sacrifice?
Now that game was interesting, even if it had balance problems... and even though I desperately wished for a way to nominate "captain" units which I could move the camera to...

I'm not sure if I understand your question, but I think the answer is "no". You can order your troops there on the map, or you can press up on the pad and they'll advance with you.

The only thing is, I haven't tried advancing units past an ENEMY node, but that doesn't mean it isn't possible.

no, I didn't, and if a game doesn't hook me right away, there are 5 more games waiting to be played. nothing I was doing during the time I played it, imperfect conditions or otherwise, compelled me to touch it again. It's basically 'too japanese' for me at this point, that is to say instead of showing me why it was cool, it expected me to figure that out simply because it's there.

maybe the full experience is better, and I'd be willing to give it another half hour or so, but beyond that, I mean...I still haven't played Okami, Zack & Wiki, Shadow of the Colossus (for more than 15 minutes), Yakuza, Call of Duty 4, Halo 3, Mass Effect, or Dead Rising. And these are all games I own! And I'm only 20% of the way through BioShock. Unfortunately that skews me even further away from thinking of picking up a game that's designed that way.

No no, I sweat, but just a little. Then I toss my hair and the tiny droplets of sweat glitter in the sunlight.

I sneeze, too, but I always cover my mouth and make an adorable little "Chu!"

But the bathroom...no. I don't ever do that.

As for Guilty Gear, I think reviewers could rightfully say both:

"It's a fast-pased, genre-defying thrill ride with a system that stays fresh for hours"

and

"It's an overwhelming overcomplicated disaster that's not worth half the time it demands from you."

I don't buy "Musou clone" though.

Still, it might not be worth my time, or anyone's time. I don't really know. I could keep playing it, then eventually find out that once you understand it, you understand that it's not worth understanding.

Also...

sfried

I always thought of Guilty Gear more like...I dunno...a trap or something. Like, you play for a while and you "get it"...and you think you're good, and then you realize you're not doing anything right and you probably never will. I've probably put 300+ hours into various GG games and I still suck. I'm doubt I'm even "okay" by GG standards.

That's exactly what I understood, that greenpeace was whining that after the console is no longer used and it "goes to waste", that after that event; it's materials have a 0% chance of being reused or properly disposed, and it can only become polution.

More likely Greenpeace, having no legal right to do a proper inspection, couldn't hack out the right official documents from Nintendo's ghetto website to determine exactly what their plans were, and used their little blog/ranking list to whine about it. Meanwhile Nintendo won't even acknowledge Greenpeace's existance until the holiday season is over.

Hush now... That will all be corrected in the English version. And by that, I mean British English...the one with the many UK accents. (Then we'll get to hear Spoony Bard in all of its glory)

I always thought of Guilty Gear more like...I dunno...a trap or something.

I've probably put 300+ hours into various GG games and I still suck. I'm doubt I'm even "okay" by GG standards.



I got in more into Hokuto (Thanks Red!) than GG. I dunno...GG is just too...complicated for me. All those guages and silly cancels. Just give me one miscalleneous button which boosts/cancels at the same time as well as button combinations that make sense in their arrangement.

Heh, English speakers may luck out (though they lose in so many other ways with these) this time, you're right. Too bad that doesn't correct the original, not that I was going to play the game I s'pose, but still, that's a criminally weak effort.

I can only hope that they will do like DQ8 and make the commoners/lower people speak incomprehensible cockney.

Of course, we might be in for some lameness with Yang and FuSoYa, but that'll be a small price to pay.

Now its Shojo though and with Del Ray. It will be weird to see Wolverine cut through people with that Boy Love style look.

And now, for something totally random different.

(quoted from Kitsuno in Samurai-archives)

quote:
Coffee Bukkake Man Arrested

A man has been arrested in Numazu, Shizuoka Prefecture for assaulting 5 schoolgirls with coffee via drive-by spitting attacks. Here’s a report from Asahi TV:

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3q7zf_coffee-attack_blog

The spitter, who was nicknamed “Coffee Bukkake Man” [コーヒーぶっかけ男] by locals, had carried out 5 attacks since the end of October. All of his victims were junior high school or high school girls wearing their uniforms, and all of the attacks involved spitting coffee onto their faces from his car window. His final attack took place on December 7th, when a 16-year-old schoolgirl he spit on was able to come to her senses quickly enough to spot his license plate number and memorize it. This led to the arrest of 26 year-old Yoshiro Sumiyama, who admitted attacking the girls. Sumiyama told police that he was irritated after having been dumped by a woman and carried out the spitting attacks to relieve some stress.



Land of wonders, where we live, indeed.

I'm wondering what's so special about Changpo, aside from "not your typical Korean in anime" kind of example.

Well, she dresses like she has loose morals, yet her personality says otherwise: she really wants to kick your ass and she's absolutely confident that she'll accomplish this. However, Changpo still retains a bubbly personality despite these contrasting traits.

Plus she has awesome piloting skills, as demonstrated by her Rounder's various animations in the arcade version.

Oh, I thought it had something to do with her being one of those high-tier characters. She seems like it, too, judging from my limited playtime.

The androgenous characters and the 1960-esque illustrations, coupled with the weird way of telling the story (not to mention the SD time calendar) is a tribute to Keiko Takemiya, who was one of the two female manga authors that kind of paved the way for other female manga authors to actually make manga for girls, instead of guys making manga for girls. She also popularized the effeminate-looking male character designs with implied shounen-ai fanservice.

Also, Changpo is top-tier in terms of game balance because she is voiced by Ai Nanoka, who is a top-tier voice actress herself, and she pilots a Rounder designed by CHOCO.

I've giving you my reasoning as to why G.Rev made her top-tier when they decided to balance the characters. XD

Also, Cuilan's pretty easy to use, actually. If you're the kind of player that loves to turtle, he's your kind of character. If can move really well with him, he's a VERY dangerous character since he can ease his way into Close Combat range without much of a problem, and he's pretty much first place in terms of chase CC effectiveness. He'd be god-tier if it weren't for the fact that he takes the most damage out of everyone in the entire game.
