I did like how the same character would occasionally turn out differently depending on which parents he/she had (like Fire Emblem 13), but the game itself (and the soundtrack, for the most part) was ghastly.

Alright, everybody, this thread has run its course. Please try to get back on topic.

I dunno if they deserve praise for failing to localize a bunch of good Tales games, then localizing pretty much every bad Tales game that comes along.

That is a rather dubious distinction.

Last time this happened, we got RULES OF NATURE.

Do you really want to go down in history as the person who looked RULES OF NATURE square in the eyes and said “no more?”

Cracker Barrel knows how to grill them some catfish amirite

So I’m playing Sonic 4 Episode 1 on my phone. I had previously concluded that this game was bad when I demoed it on console. Game is still bad. Physics are wonky, special stages are certainly special, and animations are sad. Sonic fans, your loyalty is a moment to all of humanity’s sins.

Unfortunately, the “good” indie games, the ones that get the name recognition for being notable releases among the tidal wave of indie games washing up on the stores of Steamland every day, they’re the ones that have the name recognition to end up in a Humble Bundle.

Typical response to such an event would be more, “discontinuing the offer until the issues have been resolved”.

Microsoft typically doesn’t divulge information about the status of a partner’s game. They let the partner deal with it. Still, I can believe this, because Microsoft has a history of being quite draconian when it comes to QA and certification of Arcade titles. Uber Entertainment had issues with Microsoft back in 2010 because their patching policies were incompatible with the way Uber had built Monday Night Combat, and ended up jerry-rigging a Frankenstein monster of a patch as the game’s first free update, which broke the game for a number of users with constant freezing, frame drops, and bizarre glitches. There was certainly talk that Microsoft might pull the game completely….

and then MNC hauls ass over to Steam within a few months.

But cheaper TVs with better or equal technology is what got them the sales Sony couldn’t get.

Not better, but certainly close enough in quality that Sony’s bloated price point becomes nothing less than a turn-off relative to the competition.

After all the excellent trailers we got from Bungie-era Halo…this is what we get? Not saying it’s bad, just saying I expected some amazing marketing, unless all that was on the Microsoft side, and Bungie was just getting all the credit for it.

In any case, cool to see the trailer demoing the Bladedancer Super, which would’ve been awesome to have hands-on time with during the beta. That would be great for Control matches.

I agree that it can very likely be the hottest racing sim among enthusiasts, who’ve likely heard about the game through auto media outlets, but among gamers? Those people are gushing over Driveclub and Forza Horizon 2_, and I’ve only ever seen the phrase "_Project Cars" used a small handful of times among gamers.

I’m not so sure. The fact that there are people that haven’t heard about it (I myself have only heard about it two or three times in passing) indicates that Bamco isn’t doing a great job of getting the word out.

Then Wii U console pre-orders going up would be a no-brainer, because there wasn’t a bundle available for pre-order before, and now there is.

ChuChu Rocket has been cleaned up, visually, and looks great. Touch is a perfect control method for it, too.

Again, best dollar I ever spent in the Android ecosystem.

I’m also expecting Super Monkey Ball 2 next week, but I already bought that one on sale…

New mobile bundle available, this one for Sega games! Available are:

Sonic 4 episode 1 & 2
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing
Crazy Taxi
ChuChu Rocket
Virtua Tennis Challenge

It’s an okay bundle, although the real gem there is ChuChu Rocket, and that shit’s the best $.99 I EVER spent on the Android Store (pre-Google Play).

I’m expecting Jet Set Radio as a week 2 bonus, though considering the other things Sega has uploaded to Google Play, I have about a 50/50 chance of getting something lame.

aaaaaaand no, I don’t want a mobile copy of After Burner Climax.

God damn, what have they done to it? Where’s is the mythological tone? The ever present wonder?

It’s a basic rule of writing in that you can’t just subsist on mystery forever. After enough journeying, you’re bound to, at the very least, randomly come across some sort of codex or indicator of the true nature of what you’ve been witnessing all along. Hell, all this ancient technology and its history was magical and foreign to humanity…until we managed to chase the Covies away long enough to get some hands-on time with it all. Now we’ve incorporated their technology into much of our military hardware and we know where they stashed most of their shit.

As for it being “generic” now, you can chalk that up to Halo being the first game to really try a futuristic sci-fi shooter on such a large scale, and we’ve seen so much of it in the interim, as well as imitations and competitors, that it doesn’t really impress the way it did when stepping out onto Installation 04 the first time. Similarly, Dragonball (and later Z) were really the first to take shonen action to such ridiculous lengths, but was around for so long that by the time it finished, its style of action was, well…cliché.

You just know Nintendo is going to funnel the profits from this (which will be huge) directly into the flagship Pokemon releases on Nintendo hardware, marking the first time a microtransactional mobile game had any kind of positive effect on gaming.

Ehhhh, we’ll see about this one. Kokuga wasn’t so good.

A proposed plan would reportedly merge Machinima, the Warner-backed channel which has distributed original programming like Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, Mortal Kombat: Legacy and Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, with XES.

Nope.

Still, glad Halo’s sticking with TV rather than film. The television side of Hollywood is still kept very much separate from the bloated film side of Hollywood, and the bloated film side is the one that supposedly chased Microsoft away from a film deal by asking for merchandising rights and wanting to exert too much creative control over a franchise that 343 has been quite particular about. This way, Microsoft gets to retain creative control and shape Halo the way they see fit.
