Re: Anime & Manga (NO SPOILERS PLEASE)

@Maxz Oh, for Prince of Tennis? I mean they both share similar problems:

The main character is overpowered while coming off like a jerk (Though, moreso for PoT, Ichigo in Bleach is just "rough 'n' tumble", while Ryoma is an egotist who is frequently reinforced by his successes); the power level (yes, PoT has power-levels! They even go Super Saiyan!) escalates way too fast, yet everyone seems to be there simply to exemplify just how amazing the main dude is, not to mention there are too many characters in general (at least the whole rivals-turned-friends works in a sports context, but since it's also tennis, they never really stop being rivals); The story gets rediculous, yet also gets stretched to hell; and I personally feel that both of them have gotten more attention than they deserve (until Crunchyroll came around, Prince of Tennis was the only genuine sports anime to get a decent amount of popularity in the US, and even aired on TV via programs like Toonami).

@Maxz I actually liked Kuroko Basket, since it was like your average shounen anime while trying its best to stay grounded in the world of Basketball, even if that meant straining at the seams. It was facinating, at least, especially considering how often egos seem to get in the way in Basketball, making the whole "learning to succeed through teamwork" aspect feel a lot more natural than, say, The Prince of Tennis (which, from what I'm told, is the "Bleach" of Sports manga, and I can believe that from what I've seen of it)

And there's a show about brevet cycling, which - unlike Haikyuu's volleyball - is a sport I actually do. It'll be interesting to see how many similarities it has with Yowamushi Pedal (which was another guilty sports-anime pleasure of mine).

Wait, why would those be guilty pleasures? I haven't watched much of Haikyuu or Yowamushi Pedal (only clips), but it looks like an earnist, if exaggerated sports drama. In fact, there's a lot of good sports anime, and you don't always need to be a fan of the sport. It's nothing to be ashamed of, unlike, say, an overtly girly anime like PreCure, or blatant moe fanservice like Strike Witches.

Speaking of which, there is going to be more PreCure and Strike Witches this coming season. I am pleased.

I know I started doing it, too, because it makes post a gazillion times easier to skim, especially when I'm dirt tired, which I am almost every time I post here.

And they're Full of $#!+: http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Here-How-Xbox-One-Backwards-...

Emulated Backwards Compatibility is still Backwards Compatibility. They did something very similar with the Xbox 360 and 80GB PS3, yet no one made much of a huff back then.

EDIT: [On second thought, I'll not open that can of worms]

Is One Punch Man worth watching if I don't really like shounen anime?

It coasts the line between homage and parody like a pro, if that means anything to you. I guess it depends on what you usually don't like like shounen anime.

It's official: My Xbox 360 now has my permission to die. Well, okay, I'm still waiting on two games from Treasure, but the two biggest question marks are apparently coming at the same time. I also wouldn't mind Blue Dragon Showing up on there.

@Grumblevolcano Dude, Lost Odyssey has 4 discs!

EDIT: Also, I'm gonna grab myself a copy of Burnout Revenge & maybe Blue Dragon today.

Anyway, I wonder if anything interesting is on its way for Autumn/Fall... I don't tend to be very up of these things.

I personally haven't seen any highlights other than continuations, but feel free to take a look for yourself. BTW, there are plenty of similar sites if you that one doesn't work for you (I know it's pretty system-heavy, I can never use it on my iPad). I only linked that website because of the amount of options you can access without signing up for anything. Which is great, since the default set ups are always terrible on these sort of websites, IMO.

Re: The Playstation 4 fan thread.

@Peek-a-boo Oh, hey, that sounds neat. But wouldn't people potentially slip on the marbles?

Anyways, I do remember playing some peg board game with my family in a restaurant in New England (judging from an online description of the rules, it was the same thing, but with plastic pegs instead of actual marbles, because, like I said, they gotta avoid slippage). We were so confused and awed by it, in only because it's rare to see any sort of game in a public establishment, at least in the places we've gone to.

October's PS+ games were revealed. REmake and Transformers Devastation! Absolutely solid month. Resident Evil is perfect for Halloween.

Actually, the Vita and PS3 games they're giving away look worthwhile, too. I've been meaning to pick up From Dust since it came out, but I kept putting it off. Mad Riders looks like a good racing game that's at least different from the other two I already own for the PS3 (Burnout Paradise and Wipeout HD), so I'm looking forward to that.

On the Vita, I'm sorry I kept confusing Code:Realize with the Blazblue VN spin-offs, because it actually sounds really intersting. Like, when I was done reading the synopsis, I started clawing at the screen, going "let me read this! I gotta find out what happens!" I haven't said that in ages!

As for the other game, I've heard a lot of good things about Actual Sunlight...the game, I mean. Not the one that gives you cancer. The premise comes off as extremely depressing, though, so I had been skipping it this whole time. Maybe getting it for free will help me at least go in without expectations.

But yeah, Resident Evil as a freebie is almost too generous. Now I don't have to spend money on a Halloween game this year. Transformers: Devastation is also timely, since I saw the animated Transformers movie at a 'retro' theater matinee a few weeks ago, and now I'm really in the mood. It's kind of in the same boat as Mad Riders, too, in that it looks quick and fun, but not substantial enough for me to justify even a discounted price, but getting it with my subscription suddenly makes it like an arcade game where someone else is supplying the quarters, so I think it's well worth a shot.

...but from what I have heard [about the Virtual Boy], you are most likely right.

Damn right.

But I'll at least agree that the N64 hasn't stood the test of time. I still love a lot of games from that era, but only because there are certain gameplay styles that were abandoned for no particular reasons other than fickle market tastes. Otherwise, yeah, it's an ugly machine, the controller's awkwardly designed, it's cartridges, while sturdy, are fairly bulky. And pretty much all the games are hard to look at nowadays, with their frequent clipping, flat textures, and a lot of games lacked any sort of reasonable draw distance, so you'd have games like Turok or Star Wars, where everything was enveloped by a constant fog, and you can barely tell where you're going sometimes. Not to mention the painful transitions in gameplay mechanics, as developers struggled to figure out the whole 3D thing...it was a mess all around.

Re: Earthlock Festival of Magic, early opinion from x1 version!!!

CanisWolfred

@Thaswizz Not to mention they're having enough problems that they already had to delay the Steam version at least 2 weeks. October 1st is the earliest they could release it if it was actually ready. As @Rukiafan7 pointed out, it isn't ready. Still got to be a little more patient.
