Pretty impressive for a PS2 game. Why the fuck didn't they do Persona 5?

Golden wasn't on the PS2. But yeah, the original was, so you're half right, sort of.

As for why not P5, because it'd probably cut into their PS4 sales. Royal just came out, and they won't release the non-royal edition on PC (wouldn't make sense), so I highly doubt they'd step on their console sales, or potential console sales. Or they just didn't want to risk it and thought maybe no one would buy a Persona game on PC, so they threw out a quick port of P4Golden just to test the waters.

The real question is why not bring out Digital Devil Saga or Nocturne, which are *infinitely* better than any Persona game and much more beloved by the hardcore RPG community as well as being far away from any timed exclusivity deal, having come out in the mid 2000s.

Was P5 for the PS4 really much more than a port? I played it on the PS3, and actually never knew it was on another Sony console. A cursory Google shows you are right, but I was just wondering what (if any) differences exist.

This one was a bit of a shocker for me. It had a similar vibe to Doom Squad and (like that) may not be amazing, but is still plenty entertaining and fun. No Alan Tudyk though.

I pretty much always end up just going back to vi / vim for any coding I don't need to live collaborate on, but I have found VS Code shocking lightweight and plenty powerful for a Microsoft VS Electron project.
It is rare to print code anymore, but I still find that a strange omission from VSC.

the story is done like a radio play. There aren’t cutscenes, just audio that plays when you do whatever objective you have. Some can overlap so you have multiple stories going on at the same time, which can be confusing to listen to, especially if they involve the same characters. The story is extremely funny, with great voicework, but again...no cutscenes. When playing co-op this means you’ll want to play without headsets or you’ll miss out

I haven't followed this, but I mean that actually sounds like a lot more fun than I would have thought.

It is a popular site so he links it? I mean I have quibbles with The Register and Toms all the time.

If you think it is too pro Intel, worry not, I will come complain about all poorly written sources from time to time, shaking cane in hand.

It wasn't even that long ago that we had that "Ryzen kills Intel - 80% of all CPUs in Summer 2019 AMD!" or whatever that ended up being some fluff piece about one website in Germany with a microscopic market share... but ya know, 80% of that .2% of the actual number of processors sold. There have been much worse THW articles is I guess what I am trying to say.

What's going to sell consoles is games, and right now Microsoft's Exclusives are pretty wiffle bat worthy, and with Microsoft games they will be out on console and pc, so that leaves me no reason to purchase a Xbox. The Tom's Hardware article is awful.

Considering the Xbox event hasn’t happened yet, how do you know their exclusives? They had a launch lineup, yes, but if they are bothering to have an event it is pretty much guaranteed they have something to show off, just like Sony did. Not that I have a single reason to care about either currently.

Actually they did have their event, and showed a few videos and roughly 4 exclusives (Halo being one of them) but the rest are multiplatform or remasters for the system.

That was one of those new (and dumb) "announcement of an announcement" type things. Their actual big E3 show replacement like Sony's is yet to come. It is in July, but I cannot remember the exact date, probably because I am not exactly holding my breath. I don't know what they could really have up their sleeve, but I guess I am going to at least let them flop about on their digital stage before I render their launch wanting.

Geez. I'm old. I remember trying to buy the game from a local Electronic Boutique store, but sold out. I had to wait a few days.

I had the collectors edition preordered from probably the summer before, if not longer. I think it still the single largest box any game I ever bought came in. Sadly it wasn't that neat of a CE as far as contents went, though not bad either really. Soundtrack, cinematic DVD, some dice and instructions for a pen and paper game (the dice were actually really nice, but I have never used them as I am not really a tabletop gamer), and I think that may have been it.

It was still better than the StarCraft CE though, that was literally just a "COLLECTORS EDITION" sticker on the box. To be fair, I don't think it cost any extra you just had to preorder or just get lucky and be there early. I think, at that time, Westwood usually had the best boxed CEs. Foil box, individually numbered, pewter unit statues, posters, as well as all the usual stuff like soundtracks.

People who are easily offended and favor the banning of ideas and symbols should realize that bans actually serve to make that which is banned more attractive--not less attractive. It's the forbidden fruit syndrome--and it's human nature. Bans often create more curiosity and interest as opposed to less.
As I mentioned in post 59, Japanese attempts to censor full frontal nudity resulted in the very kind of deviant representations it was designed to prevent. Law of unintended consequences.

Let me get this straight.. SS runes were not banned before this?
What would make you think that?

Oh, just that the US wrote it into law to ban it in Germans laws... you know, way back when...
Sorta kinda like US pressured Japan about indecency laws after the war that carry over today in their blurring out of genitals in media including porn... and in the USA we never got any laws like that

And that's how we got tentacle porn.

I don't know why people think that. Japanese erotic art has a long, colorful, and OH MY EYES WHERE IS THE BEACH WHY WHY IS THERE NO BLEACH? history that greatly predates WWII. The US did try to get all puritanical, but that was way after freaky freaky stuff with cephalopods was well established. The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife (WARNING that is just the Wikipedia entry, but like... Urk ) is a relatively well known one from the early 1800s and it is hardly the first.

There is plenty more tentacle monsters, goatse demons, hairy female reproductive spirit eyes, squirrel-things that use their scrotum as a crude type of parachute, all of which I am sure the internet will gladly show you. However, you will have to make that dark journey on your own...

TLDR: Yeah, the US tried. They knew not with what forces they meddled! Plus, when you are dealing with a country that already has a giant public penis festival, adding some blur to their smut was only ever deluding yourself.

Most of those were pretty rare. I know the Confederate Flag will tank a lot of people's General Lee livery, the horror, but I don't see much else. Unless they get very broad with the Rising Sun as very fancy (but also rather different from the one they are referring to here) are used on some Japanese livery.

The SS runes are probably the only other one I have seen, but it is rare and is usually on what I believe are middle eastern users cars so I don't even know if they get the context of the symbols they are using...

Not sure if this is this a reference to James Cagney or Steve Earle... Either way this comment doesn't help promote our youthful community reputation...

I agree with you on D3, at least as far as what they made it into. While it was never as bad as some said on launch, it wasn't the best. They kept at it and slowly patched it into a very respectable game. I think that is one of the few old Blizzard traits I saw in D3, but it is also one of the most important old Blizzard traits, they stand by (or did, at least, for many many years) their work.

Ignoring for a moment that this ticks the box of just so many logical fallacies - before you ask:

logical fallacies- misconceptions resulting from flaws in reasoning, or a trick or illusion in thoughts that obfuscates facts

conservatism has never been friendly with tolerance or the advancement of knowledge, per its very nature, so that seems a peculiar insult...

The bit I was referring to was
Ms. Gordon said, because straight white men have “created the identity of the gamer as this exclusive property.”

I was basically agreeing with you, but only on that one very specific part. It was every other possible part I was disagreeing with you on.

EDIT: I can see how that was confusing, I worded that whole bit poorly. I was trying to say I disagreed with all of your post except that her quote was bad and that it is the best time as there has been to start developing games for new or even new niche types of gamers.

@ Cutter. You accuse the quote of misandry, then defend the industry as "by men, for men." You're making her point for her. So congrats on that point.

I don’t really disagree with you on anything except “start a business” bit. This is the easiest it has ever been to start making your own game. Now I am not saying that has become an easy task, but with digital distribution, blogs YouTube etc to spread the word, Indy gaming being “in”, multiple free engines and developer programs, mobile adding a whole new subset of ‘gamers’, and so on, this would be the time to start. The article even says as much.

Now to the other point, I don’t agree with Cutter, but that is a stupid line. Some people have created some toxic online culture, but it wasn’t “the straight white men”. If you think there are no minorities who are sexist or homophobic or women who are racist playing games on the Internet you are sheltered, willfully ignorant, or both. I am ultimately on their side, but I think it would be hypocritical to not call out BS just because it’s on the side of history I choose to stand on. Stupid is stupid and benefits no one.
