Eurogamer posted an article stating that they're too busy with the 3DS...

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-01-...japan-exclusive

I guess time will tell.
Eggman of the Strata
Yeah, but Nintendo UK's been completely out of the loop before, including not knowing plans for a whole bunch of new releases and contradicting announcements made like a week later.

Besides, how many games come to the US and not Europe? A ton? What isn't "viable" to them means nothing to us.

Also lol Eurogamer gave Mother 3 like a 7.

I'm actually kind of surprised that no one's working on a translation for Xenoblade though. I assume they could just use that bypass thing like they did for Fatal Frame 4.

I remember seeing a list of their top selling games for a certain year and if I recall correctly it was full of shovelware-tier games. (Or maybe it was just for the UK)

Also can't wait for the 3DS, too bad it has game gear quality battery life if the rumors are correct.

So...Konami is acquiring Hudson Soft? The article says that Konami's main intent is to use Hudson's knowledge of developing mobile/social games.

I hope this doesn't mean anything bad for the future of Hudson properties on consoles, though.

wait what, it's been a few years but i thought flint was the first character you really take control of (unless you count running around as Lucas in the prologue)

now i wanna re-play mother3 and cry uncontrollably but that'd take too long so i'll just listen to this roy orbison/nekomata master split instead

Can anyone who's played the original Grandia 2 on Dreamcast inform me of bad slowdown or frame rates in a lot of the towns/dungeons? I'm enjoying the PS2 port fine and all, but it feels like Game Arts had a hard time porting the game over to the PS2. Also, the game crashed a little over 5 hours in on me.
Eggman of the Strata
Grandia 2 for Dreamcast has basically zero slowdown from what I remember. It was extremely smooth and the PS2 port was shoddy and really bad. Not as bad as the PC version, but bad.

Dreamcast rules.
Axem Rangers
the PS2 and PC versions of Grandia II are some of the most notoriously shitty DC -> ports
there's audio issues too

Grandia II fucking rules. The combat system is actually twice as complex as it needs to be because the game is kinda easy. So you can get through it without understanding most of the nuances.

I finished 999. Overall pretty good but that last image was like haha okay whatever.

The PS2 port is buggy as hell but still playable (at least for now). Good thing I got it for free, then. If my Dreamcast didn't suck I'd play it on there instead.

Looks like Nintendo of France corrected NoE guy just like I thought they would and said that Last Story isn't not coming over, it's just not coming coming westward right now. I'm guessing E3 they'll announce it and it'll come out as the August game.

Also hooray I beat Arc Rise Fantasia. The last quarter of the game was actually really good and I like the story overall a lot. If only the voice acting weren't so cringe-inducing. It's also way too hard in some spots.

Eggman of the Strata
What, you mean like Iwata having already stated that they were looking to bring over all the Japanese only Wii and DS games this year to keep something going for the Wii at least? There's no point in being all retard cynical when you have actual statements from people saying stuff like that. What reason does Nintendo of France have to correct NoE in the first place if they weren't going to do anything with it? Why scramble to cover them at all?

If it doesn't show up at E3, fine, I'll accept it. But I'm not going to jump to the conclusion that it's just not coming here when there is actual supporting evidence for it to come here.

Also, Red Steel 2 is really fun. It's probably super short and the voice acting is really cheesy but it fits and it's fun to stab guys in the chest. I'd love Way of the Samurai with these controls.

crosspost from facebook on why dkc returns is the worst game ever

A) having to shake the controller every time you want a boost of speed (every 2-8 seconds depending on if you're speedrunning or just playing casually?...) is ridiculously shallow and gimmicky. cool.gif If you roll into an enemy, the game doesn't continue your roll. You have to jump for safety. Plus, C) the game encourages shaking by making you ground pound in order to get to hidden secrets.
I was halfway done with the first level and already felt like an idiot a dozen times. All this would be nullified if there was classic/gc controller support but D) guess what lol, Nintendo thinks they can tell people how to have fun instead of being slightly open-minded.
Buffalo
theres a hack that ppl use to play the game with a classic controller
chotto kiitena
I thought I'd hate the control scheme for DKCR but I actually thought it wasn't too bad. Game is pretty fun and I usually hate modern platformers
Eggman of the Strata
The controls work fine unless you suck in which case you suck. Mirror Mode K levels are really hard thanks to no Diddy and one hit deaths.

lol if you can't handle someone not liking a game you like then maybe you should get out more
Eggman of the Strata
But I'm outside 90% of every day. Thinking of you.

Also if you think everything I'm saying is actually in reference to you, you're more full of yourself or something than I thought, I dunno. I only saw Xythar's post and then said that and then saw that other reply after, at which point it still didn't really have anything to do with what you said but apparently you think it does. Notice that I never said anything about what they were like. I just said they worked fine unless you're bad at it. You never said anything about them not working right either. So uh, basically is there a point to you acting like an ass at this point?

along with like at least another 5 million people

I'm actually kind of surprised but it outsold every FF other than 7, 8 and 10.

Oh hey neat Saga 2 DS fan translation is 100% now.

Also, I tried out that demo for Dissidia 2. It looks like they fixed the button reading AI and Lightning is really fun to use since you can shift between attacker, black mage and healer whenever and assists actually add quite a bit to the game. It plays a lot better than the first game did.

And I reached my second crash 13 hours into Grandia II, mere seconds after saving (thankfully).

If I ever end up in Japan and meet any of the converters from Rocket Studio Inc, I will slap them hard.

yo I got my xbox all set up

the firmware was way way way too new to jtag so I signed up for the free xbox live sigh sad.gif

what do I buy guys
also I am broke and unemployed so send me free stuff

for region free games (I wanna get Cave shit, basically) there's nothing I have to do other than pop the disc ion, right?
rmz
If you want Cave games, there are a good number on XBLA too, remember.
Axem Rangers
oh? what's on there besides guwange?

daifukkatsu black label should be region free sad.gif
rmz
Oh, I think you're right, I was probably confusing some of their disc-based releases as XBLA.

I was also probably mentally lumping Treasure in with Cave as well because I know nothing about shmups. Ikaruga is out (obviously) and Radiant Silvergun is coming later this year.
Axem Rangers
sad.gif

yah I have Ikaruga for GCN but if I end up getting a stick for my 360 (really want one, plus I can use it with MAME?) I'll probably pick it up.

Radiant Silvergun I'll get first thing because it's easier than swapping discs out on my Saturn to play a lousy burn. sad.gif

Looking forward to the new Bangai-O as well!

Okay so I finally picked up Bayonetta because it's dirt cheap now and holy fuck

It's in my backlog, after I picked it up for $10. I'll get to it at sooooooome point. Working my way through the last of the Fallout 3 DLC right now, and then I've got AC Brotherhood, Fallout New Vegas, and Dead Space Extraction. And that's just what I got for Christmas! Damnit, backlog...and it's only going to get worse after Marvel 3.
Eggman of the Strata
I finished Red Steel 2 in two sittings and about 8 hours total. It was really fun! Pretty much perfect controls.

So now I've gone back to play through Kisuke's story in Muramasa. After that, I have 6 more games for the Wii and then I'm all caught up on Wii games. Then I have to go over to the PS3 side where there's another large amount.

Oh, and the Oddboxx got patched so now Stranger's Wrath is nicely playable and actually has options for stuff and not just FKOJDSFLKJSDF all over the place. Munch's Oddysee was fixed too but I haven't re-installed that to see.
