    Wait, shouldn't it be the Emperor running? Or is he too busy campaigning for 2016 here in the States?

  10. Gone the Third liked a post in a topic by Legolas_Katarn in Indie FPS game Paranautical Activity has been removed on Steam after the dev sent out death threats to Gabe Newell   
    Definitely understand the decision to remove the game, it's unfortunate that one person on the team had to hurt the livelihood of the rest of his team. When you spend years working on one thing that your livelihood becomes dependent on you're likely to become much more protective of it and upset when something goes wrong, unfortunately when you have an outburst like that nothing good is going to come of it.
     
    Out of 1000s of indie developers because of one guy that has an ego problem, something that didn't happen, people who probably shouldn't really even be considered game developers abusing Steam, and this idiot you believe the indie community has become worse? None of the above things even effect their finished product or the customers who bought the game. I'm pretty sure if we started following every single person who worked on AAA games more closely we would see a lot of stupidity too, in addition to all the stupid things the more public figures already do or have done.

    That's due in part of the west and imperialism.
    And that's a lonnnnng story.
    The very very very simple and probably-not correct version that I pulled out of my ass because I decided to pay attention to my high school world history class:
     
           If I remember correctly, the Japanese really loved their porn (I'll assume they still do). Like, this is stuff that puts the stuff I have hidden under my bed to shame. <----- remember that word.
           However, in the Meiji era (1860s-1920s) there was a big shift in power and a ton of other things (because of globalization/imperialism etc etc)... The Meiji Restoration. During said time, somebody came up with a law that pretty much outlawed porn or rather "obscene depictions." And if I also remember correctly, death was a punishment for awhile. Why? I don't know. But "Why?" as to the Meiji Restoration: To "promote civilization and enlightenment" through western ideals and/or ethics.
          And, well, westerners were pretty conservative when it came to nudity and sex and what have you (inb4 "The Aristocrats!" joke).
          The whole thing with Meiji Restoration (I can't speak for the Japanese, BUT HERE I AM DOING IT ANYWAYS! HERP DERP! Although I could say this is my interpretation/opinion of why they did it) is that the Japanese wanted to get on the world level and be the west's equal and even surpass them. But to be seen as equal, they had to hide (what westerners of the time would consider) their "embarrassment." And, well... some of the stuff Japanese hide under their beds... I'd be a bit ashamed of that if I was a westerner during the 1800's. And the best way to hide something like that is to shame it or make it illegal.
          But as far as I know, that didn't put a damper on the Japanese really loving their porn. It was just heavily censored.
          And I'm also guessing after World War 2, these hefty laws were eased up on during 'Murican occupation because we freedom lovin' 'Muricans love our free speech. We figured we'd spread our freedom to the fine people of Japan.
          Take what I said with a grain of salt. *Fart noise*
          Yay indents!

  13. Sol Omega liked a post in a topic by Gone the Third in Give me an anime   
    Neither do I, and I do apologize if at any point it seemed like I was being a little harsh on the fanservice (though, if anything, I felt I mostly ignored it outside of the first spoiler). Frankly, when you have a scene where you have a girl's jiggling breasts going all Neo on a high caliber round, you've moved past the point where the fanservice has any potential to offend me and moved into "in awe of the audacity of the act" territory. Though the requisite bath scene was still extremely blatant. But, again, not as bad as some that I've seen (not including straight-up porn, mind).
    As for the characters, really only Kohta (the gun-nut otaku kid) has stuck with me in terms of name and traits, and that's mostly because he's named and modeled after Hellsing's mangaka (and also because we share a tendency to nerdgasm over weapons). Outside of that... I don't know, didn't the girl with the sword kill a guy in self defense and like the feeling it gave her, or something? I seem to remember the brown-haired protagonist guy being kind of generic, so I guess that puts him leagues ahead of everyone else in the cast in terms of what I remember about them. But, hey, I guess some things stick more easily for some people than others (I can barely remember most of everything I learned in math class, but ask me to do a Monty Python skit? Shit, let's just hope the ceiling's high enough!).
    I don't know, I almost kind of want to rewatch it to see what I remember. Then again, with the new Civ coming up, I doubt I'll have the time before I'm declared legally dead and they cut off the internet.
    But speaking of fanservicey shows-

  15. Gone the Third liked a post in a topic by Sol Omega in Give me an anime   
    I already explained my thoughts on Danagaropasamaniposapurple.
    I think it was along the lines of: Play the game.
    Giving the anime an arbitrary 7 is too much.
     
     
     
    Personally, I think it deserves a higher score. 7 at the very most. It's a TITular situation... I want to give it a nice score, because it's not pussy footing around. But it kinda only has boobs and violence going for it...
    Everything about it advertises zombies and tits, all I expect is zombies and tits, and well... I get zombies and tits, and some nice extra stuff.
     
    A lot of people say they don't care about the characters, but I kinda do. I can still remember most of their names despite watching it once a few years ago. I did kinda care when they got in trouble. And all the girls except for best girl Saeko and mysterious Shizuka are... just... awful... Rei is kind of redeeming but... I hate them. I find the characters to be well written and endearing. Maybe not original by any means, but I got feelings from watching their interactions with one another. Not only that, but I found the show's dialogue to be "realistic."
    As for offensive fan service... HOTD isn't the worst offender. By any means. It's blatant, but I don't find it "offensive." Ridiculous... but not offensive.
     
    Arbitrary score out of 10? 6.5, but I give it with love.
     
    Give it a whirl.
    Only 24 episodes.

    Miss Black Isle, but them being gone has got us Obsidian and inXile so that turned out alright.
     
    Working Designs. Always good to have another team that can bring over Japanese games, hopefully if they were still around they would learn not to mess with the script so much. Even with messing with some scripts they still brought out Lunar SIlver Star, Lunar Eternal Blue, Dragon Force, Popful Mail, Vanguard Bandits, etc.
    Origin Systems
    Troika Games (Arcanum Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, Temple of Elemental Evil, Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines)

    Oh my god... This game... 
    The main character looks like Nathan Explosion if he went off the deep end, sounds like every emo "badass" main character EVER, the script reads like something you'd hear from a parody game commercial on a TV show, the gameplay trying so hard to be brutal and shocking that it just comes off as adorable on the dev's part, and lest we forget the title art looks to be aping Doom, of all things...
    Oh, and the name. Was "Lack of Creative Wit" taken?
    I've not laughed this hard at someone seriously trying to make me shocked in far, far too long.

    Like Postal without any humor to it from the looks of it. Judging by quotes from the dev team an uninteresting idea from uninteresting people and not really worth giving any attention to.
     
    I don't really get the "beyond brutal" quotes, I think those people might have missed a few games.
