Re: Random Shenmue III Thoughts

You sure about that? I'm pretty sure no one is sure about anything. Being that it's all conjecture. Anyway, you're all assuming that the person in his arms is dead. What if they just got married? Ryo might just be carrying his bride across the threshold into their new home. Also it's not Ryo, it's ...

Re: "Zhu Yuan Da" or "Yuanda Zhu"? | Character Names in S1 v

I wouldn't call it a "problem." I personally prefer the first game's method, if only because it's more authentic, and I'll take authenticity over western accessibility every time with stuff like this. If they said it one way in the Japanese audio, that's how I want to see it in the subs, ...

Re: Random Shenmue III Thoughts

I tend to stay out of the Shenmue areas of the forums for the most part, so excuse me if this gets talked about much. But random thought: I really hope SIII maintains the replayability of the previous two games. I was thinking about it, and the first two have a very unique style of progression, whe...

Re: Yakuza series

^^It sounds to me likes it's not so much about the Kiwami being mediocre, but rather that old fans (the ones no doubt most excited about any entry in the series) have already basically played the game, being that it's a remake. The stuff I'm hearing doesn't seem so much like the game itself is poor...

Re: What are you reading?

A Death in the Family's a surprisingly silly read. :lol: Yeah, I'm actually finding that to be the case. The best parts are the parts I already knew, and had already seen the visuals for: the Joker beating Jason Todd with a crowbar being most notable (the alternating panels going from windup to swi...

Re: What are you reading?

For the longest time, I was incredibly resistant to DC's move into the New 52 back in 2011 or whenever; for all intents and purposes, it basically seemed like it set out to negate all of the continuity that had been established in the DC Universe ever since I was a kid, so I said "fuck all tha...

Re: Random Thoughts

Huge fan of the original Blade of the Immortal comic. And I tend to like Takashi Miike's "quickly-made, lower-budget, don't-give-a-damn-if-it's-silly" brand of filmmaking... ...so why am I so put off by the way this new Blade of the Immortal movie looks? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ca...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Hard to say. The fighting system is really deep, but aesthetically it takes a pretty minimal approach (hence the Ueda reference). It only has a "story" in the loosest sense, and so far it doesn't really have quests or anything; I've been playing for ten hours, and thus far the whole goal ...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Absolver finally came out the other day, so I've been plugging away at that. Amazing fighting system. At first it seems simple, but once you start piecing together your own "decks" of fighting moves, you start to realize how complex the balancing must have been for it. Most games utilizin...

Re: What TV series are you watching?

It was okay. There was only one truly great action scene in the entire thing (the office fight, when they all finally meet), and I don't think the end result was quite as epic as they were probably aiming for. Honestly I thought the whole show felt weirdly cheap compared to, at the very least, the ...

Re: Secret of Mana 3D remake

Well yeah, the sprites are more appealing to guys like us, of course. But they have to do something to make it new, so I don't mind the 3D. And to be fair, the design work itself actually looks to be lifted directly from the original game; it's honestly just the old designs translated to 3D. If tha...

Re: Fist of the North Star (New)!!! PS4

After playing the first Ken's Rage, I became a total FotNS nut and watched through the entire anime in the span of something like a week and a half, two weeks. Eventually imported the PAL version of Ken's Rage 2 and loved that, whilst most others turn their noses up at it because of low production ...

Secret of Mana 3D remake

Hoo boy. Nothing will necessarily beat the look and feel of good old-fashioned SNES sprites and all that, but the 3D still looks surprisingly nice, and based on screenshots it seems like it'll basically retain the exact same gameplay as the original. Even the little bit of voice acting in the trail...

Re: Yakuza series

Jesus Christ, that Fist of the North Star looks amazing. I loved KoeiTecmo's versions, and I'll miss some of the redesigns from that, but this one looks like it has generally higher production values. They seem to have retained the general double-bass-pedal heavy metal style of Koei's soundtracks f...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Steam recently had a sale on pretty much all Batman games, so I went ahead and got Arkham Asylum, City, and Origins. Always thought of them specifically as console games before, so getting them on PC never even entered my mind. But someone also pointed me toward a program recently that lets you use...
