  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Does anyone honestly give a crap about gaming journalism?. on the Games Discussion board

    I should point out a distinction I failed to earlier that might make my post seem contradictory if not taken into account. Namely that I feel videogame journalism does have a role to play, even if tha...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Wait, So you can't play "New 3DS" games on the old 3DS???. on the Nintendo Discussion board

    Splitting a usebase is rarely a good idea but TBH I don't think the New 3DS will be the huge userbase fracturing rift people are playing it up as. In reality you might see the odd experiment from Nint...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Namco excluded most Asian ethnicities from Tekken. on the Games Discussion board

    @Jacanuk: I think we are going beyond talking about the actual content of the game to political issues and "non-content". It's true that there's no place for discussing wider issues in the industry. ...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Does anyone honestly give a crap about gaming journalism?. on the Games Discussion board

    This is something that, as someone who has worked as a videogames writer before, I'm grappling with. Ultimately access is what seperates journalists from the public, and access is the same criteria fo...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic DS4 Horrible Battery Life?. on the PlayStation Discussion board

    @theoldgods: You can replace the battery with the one from a DS3, which apparently gets you better battery life.

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Namco excluded most Asian ethnicities from Tekken. on the Games Discussion board

    The problem with creating a new character with a select ethnicity is you tend to be locked into the type of character you can make by styles local to the region of the character, and the philosophies ...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Will Sony eliminate proprietary memory in Vita revision?. on the System Wars board

    @SolidGame_basic: TBH I'm not sold on the whole piracy rationale here. Digital distribution is far more uniform and intergrated than it was before and when you factor in PS+ games piracy begins to lo...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic XSEED SJW Drama reaches an all time high.. on the System Wars board

    Well this thread has quickly turned into being about all sorts of social issues. For me, as a JP-EN bilingual (eww, I actually called myself that *shudders*) I'm more interested in the issue of faithf...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Masahiro Sakurai: Why Wii U owners wait longer for SSB4. on the System Wars board

    Unlike many other publishers who release throwaway iterations of a franchise only to replace them a year later (making bugs a case of out of sight out of mind) Nintendo 1st party games tend to be ever...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic What do you shave with?. on the Off-Topic Discussion board

    Double-edge razor every 3-4 days. I switched from carts a few months ago to save myself on the cost of razors. I have to admit that I don't get a closer shave than I did with Gillette Fusion cartidges...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Why Sony Fans are upset about MGS V going to PC.?. on the Purgatory board

    I don't think many people actually mind the game being on PC. They take issue with obnoxious PC gamers. Obnoxious gamers exist on all platforms, but only on the PC do they play up their supposed tranc...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Project CARS runs 60 fps on PS4. on the Games Discussion board

    @behardy24: Believe it or not they are still on target for a Wii U version (making effort to mention it in every new press release) where every other developers/publishers would have quietly cancelle...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Everyone hates Microsoft because Xbox One has exclusives?. on the System Wars board

    No one benefits when a long-established multi-platform franchise goes exclusive to the weaker system (ruling out the possibility of it being technically better for being exclusive). This is not at all...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Q:Is there subtitle or simple translation on the games?. on the PlayStation Discussion board

    Its varies by game. Most English language games these days have English subtitles. These subtitles might be useful to you if you're reading is better than your listening.Hope that helps.

    @limpbizkit818 said: I like how people think the term "western games" or "western developers" means something. It's like saying that western food sucks, or you would never buy a western car. The term...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic It's time to rethink Japan's place in the industry. on the System Wars board

    I for one don't think the OP's statement is that controversial. Japanese developers have been struggling with funding issues for some time now, which has arm-tied them. But it's not that the money isn...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic So Curtain Call is coming to eShop.... on the Games Discussion board

    The second game includes pretty much every song from the first (including all the DLC), making putting both of them up somewhat pointless.
