  4. Hey everyone. I recently found out that the US version of Senran Kagura: Estival Versus will not contain the DLC characters from the Ikki Tousen series. This got me thinking about other times content had to be changed, removed, or even having the whole game not being released outside of Japan. There are multiple reasons why a Japanese game may not be export, such as costs of localizing, lack of audience, or lack of interest in putting in the extra work. However, what we are going to be talking about is licensing and copyright. For those who do not know, copyright works a bit different in Japan. I am not an expert on this stuff, but barring the aforementioned Senran Kagura, I can name two games from the top of my head whose music has been altered. Those two games are Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, and Bleach: Soul Resurrection. Another game affected would be JoJo: All Star Battle. My otakus out there who follow JoJo's Bizzare Adventure know about the massive amounts of musical references, and you should also know how that affects the names and subtitles also. Going slightly off topic, those who watch One Piece will also know of another instance of these issues affecting the international release. Are there any other times where this has happened? Please let me know.
  5. Hey fox here and I have relapsed. XD went 5 months with out dumping mass amounts of time on pso. but now i'm back and created a new team. Was wondering if anyone was interested in joining my team. Were operating out of ship 2. other than that i can say the team is mostly just a medium for English players to enjoy the game with. =)
  6. I want to know what you guys think of dragons dogma online an MMO version of what joe reviewed some time ago and i was wondering if joe was going to attempt some kind of info on this games development or when it is going to come to the states.
  7. Hey everyone, so I dunno if anyone else here know's but there's going to be a kinda sequel to dragon's dogma: Dragon's Dogma Online. I don't know a whole lot about it, and I haven't seen all the video's that exist yet (though there are only 2). Anyway, the game is said to be out later this year for both xbox one and ps4 and will be free to play on PC. Obviously this suggests and has been confirmed that the game with have a microtransaction system, which I'm sure puts off everyone here on the forum's reading this. However, before you cast your decision and say the game will suck (I'm not saying it won't or will but for reason's I'm about to mention), I need to mention the most important detail, and that is the game will only have a japanese release... But like that's going to stop me!... At least, I hope it won't. That kinda the main reason I'm posting this, I wanna know if this has been done before and what software I'll need in order to play a Japanese MMO, and thanks in advance to any who help with this matter. Now another point I'd like to bring up about the game is that apparently it have the pawn's as they were in the first gamne "AI Controlled," So theoretically playing this game may not be impossible. A simple google search of "Dragon's Dogma Online" should bring up the Basic info I found but I'm guessing I'll need to find some Japanese sites as well. (Just occurred to me I might actually be trying to do the impossible, so if this is the case please break it to me gently). Also, if this game is any good and is playable in the west by some method, New Guild?
  8. After Sunday 01/18/15, most of us enjoyed the last bit which was the Japanese offensive on Pearl Harbor. I thought, why not a whole air campaign with the axis vs allies. Just to take a break from the ground force campaign once in a while. It is also seen that the main bombers do not get to see combat in the ground force campaign and thought, this is where they could shine. This mode would be similar to that of the ground force campaign except with some differences. *Rules and Regulations: 1. Points are allocated based on BR and similar to that of how much each player costs which I believe is 2.5 per a player. 2. There is will be bases that are specific to that of each nation, aka pearl harbor and Berlin. (More of the bases and map things in below topics.) 3. In order for a team to win, they must blow up all 3 bases and or eliminate all players. However, when it is Japan vs America, both teams must destroy at least 2 of the four carriers, or when half of the airfield is blown up. ( for the pacific campaign this will need to be sorted.) 4. The game will start when all players have spawned in the on the runways. 5. Only 1/3 or 1/2 the team cannot be all fighters, unless a specific perk is given. This is to be decided. 6. Weather can be different, but must not be stormy. Night maps are allowed, but extreme weather where players are hiding in clouds is not allowed. (this will be discussed as this is a common problem especially without icons. However, because of radar, night maps are allowed, which will make for some interesting battles. More rules and regulations to come as this develops. *Maps, Planes, ETC for content: 1. Home Maps: America: Pearl Harbor/ Britain, Great Britain: Britain, Germany: Berlin, Russia: Moscow, Japan: Iwo Jima. 2. Planes exist for those only used during World War 2 and actually faced combat. In the Pacific campaign, if one of the nations has an airfield, they can use the non-naval warplanes. This still in work and it is understood that some bombers start in the air as they cannot take off of runways. This will be discussed. The list is as follows: America: Planes up to the B-24, P-51, and the Fau 1c. Anything after that is outside the boundaries. Japan: Anything up to the n1k/ Ki 84, and the G8n1. Anything after that is not accepted. Great Britain: Anything up to the Tempest Mkv, Lancaster Mk3, Mosquito, and the Spitfire Lf Mk9. Anything else after that is not accepted. (No griffons) Germany: Anything up to the Bf 109 K4, Fw190 D12, Me 410 B6/R3, and the Do 217 K4. Anything else after that is not accepted. The TA 152 is a prototype aircraft and can be used as a perk. See perks for more info. Russia: Anything up to the Yak 9u, The La 7, Yer 2, and the il-2M. Anything else after that is not accepted. I-185 is considered a prototype as it did not fly in the battlefield. Keep in mind these planes are to change as time goes on, but really seeing these High tier aircraft is unlikely due to point costs. *Perks: Perks allow the team to use different strategies allowing giving them a slight chance of winning. There will always be new perks added with new players coming up with ideas. Some will be crossed and almost similar to that of the Ground Forces Campaign. 1. Engineering : Can bring 1 vehicle/or plane that is either a premium or a prototype to the field (full cost +1 extra for prototype). 2. Cheap and Efficient: Fighters used the most during the war cost 1 less extra point. (-1 for aircraft that would used the most during the war) 3. Extra Wing man: This perk allows one extra fighter on the team. 4. Berlin Express: The cost of a bomber cost 1 less extra point. (-1 point for bombers) 5. Night Raid: One team is give allowed to set the map to night twice during the campaign. This should be used wisely as this can give the other team the advantage. (Set the time of day twice.) 6. Intelligence: The enemy team must reveal two different aircraft that they are using before each battle. 7. Oil loss: Only allowed one use, this can for one of the battles make the enemy planes cost 1 extra point ( 1 use, enemy team's planes cost +1 point.) 8. Caught by surprise: Only allowed one use, the enemy team gets the advantage of starting earlier than the enemy team. This forces the enemy team to scramble planes as fast as they can. (1 use, and early start for one team). More perks are to be developed and or more ideas can be presented as time goes on. *Finishing: As it can be seen the Britain, America, Russia vs Germany is quite simple. However the Pacific Campaign of Japans vs America is quite difficult. with spawning and Especially with carriers. That campaign might have to be set on the Eastern Front. Anyways, I hope this we can get this campaign mode started as it would make for some interesting battles, and make those excited for night combat in the air. If your a pilot as I am, I would be thrilled to play this and watch it develop. So please guys discuss about this mode and hope to see it implemented in training.
  9. You read right! Marvel in the next 2 weeks is going to publish a series of comics featuring Attack on Titan! I think this is a really cool idea and just adore the fact to see Spider-Man fighting some titans! I think Marvel will win (with heavy losses) because of their powers, Jean Grey, Thor and Ant-Man can make some massive hits! What do you guys think? The hype is on!

  13. The next Assassin's Creed is probably coming soon, so let's talk about where the next game is going to be. I personally would like to see Assassin's Creed in Japan. Instead of the white hood nonsense, how about we wear something stealthy, like ninja stuff. Plus the ninjas had some kill weapons; like those eggs with broken glass (I think there was also some sort of sauce or powder, I'm not sure, let me know if there was.) and the ninja stars and all that. So I think Japan would be a nice place for the next game. So tell me what location you would like to see next in an Assassin's Creed game. ~PantherFangG
