Re: Shenmue III

So now that this is happening, I'm reading more and more about it. As a fan of the original I'm glad it's more of the same, so to speak. I don't know how well that bodes for the people footing the bill though!

Re: Good to great Famicom games that don't cost a arm or leg

FWIW, when I ever get around to playing something (likely through emulation) the FC is a system I have largely ignored sans the big hits I played on the NES as a child.

Re: PSA: Assembler Games closing supposedly

That's supposedly the case.
I'd probably have to pay for more bandwidth for sure. Kinda static here, which I'm fine with. No time for the hobby TBH. Put so much time in it though... don't want it to go away totally.

Re: Good to great Famicom games that don't cost a arm or leg

Sadly there is not a Must Have Famicom thread here. :(

FC is one system I didn't fully explore. Perhaps if I ever get some time I'll try to play some of the funner games.

Re: PSA: Assembler Games closing supposedly

Well, here we are over a month later and it's still standing. It could go on a while. Who knows. I think most people have fled already. I didn't bother making an account at Obscure Games. Just not playing enough to justify it.

Re: Crazy Ass Auctions

Ouch! Are the days of bid wars back? That first one must have been a doozy.

Refresh my memory, 1.0 has the counter stop issue, and most of those boards were wiped with 1.5 yeah? I'd hate to be a collector, needing both. :)

Re: [SWITCH] Sega Ages

due to legal issues in Japan regarding people who are retired from a company. A lot of hullabaloo on twitter about this. This I can actually buy... easily. If there's one thing we should all know by now, Japan has no fucking clue how to do anything easily. Red tape out the ass no matter what you try.

He's a bit of a bitch though, isn't he? Aren't remakes standard to have the original staff roll in the emulation, and the port/remake staff in their own credit roll?

Re: Crazy Ass Auctions

They've since lost their pages, but if you look for sold auctions under the PCB sections and sort by price you can see that Vertexer went for a cool 2 million yen. (First one, which went for more, was cancelled).

Re: Sharehouses in Japan

I've never had to rough it so much in Tokyo, although I have friends (gaijin at that) that stay in capsules somewhat regularly. Knowing that there's shit load of people that live out of a suitcase at the cheapest place they can find. Always baffles my mind.

Re: Shenmue III

Very cool -- I always though of heading down there but in the decade and a half I spent in Tokyo after that, never did. Never went to Yokosuka once in fact. Will you post any of your photos? I guess I didn't know that Shenmue was popular enough to have any type of connection to it in real life shops...

Re: Japanese Film (Live Action)

I saw Shin Godzilla - thought it was total shit. :D

I watched Our Little Sister / Umimachi Diary. Of the 3 Koreeda films, it was the worst by a very large margin. The other two were great. Need to grab some more.

Re: Sharehouses in Japan

Japanese inns/hotels and shit are really wonky about guests staying over. Basically at ryokans they rent by headcount, not room count, so it's money they're losing. The management company of the last place I lived in japan called me after a friend from the US stayed with me for a week. On the phone ...

Re: [SWITCH] Sega Ages

Pretty cool.

I remember watching the super play of the arcade, the guy sacrifices some players... going from memory . Gotta see if I still have those somewhere. Generally speaking, I was never able to get past 1/10 with anydecent stock of players.

Re: [SWITCH] Sega Ages

. I was planning on doing a video walkthrough of it to upload to YouTube but it's a tough-as-nails game so I gave up that idea. . PS2 remake or the original? The original is a butt fucker for sure. There is a super play of it and Crackdown (same player even) which are pretty amazing. I believe the ...

They're also releasing Shenmue I&II HD (dual voice) this year. There are tons of great games on the PS4. New Sakura Taisen coming as well. :o I saw that... not super excited for it. I'm sure it will feature these new, hyper-angsty character designs that are the norm. But, who knows. Maybe it's ...

Shenmue III

Supposedly this is coming out this year... and it's about the only thing I can think of that will make me buy a PS4. (Of course I'll try to find some titles if I actaully take the plunge). Anyone care to make some predictions? Will it make it out this year? Will it suck? Will he look for sailors?

[SWITCH] Sega Ages

Looks like Sega & M2 are bringing a Sega Ages series to the Switch. Looks like they are trying Gain Ground again, after the lackluster port on the PS2. Very curious how this will be handled due to the 22khz display in the arcade version. Big fan of it though, so if I actually ever buy a Switch w...

Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

Shinobi on normal is pretty fucking hard. Not arcade hard, as you get save points and unlimited continues, but still controller-breaking shit all over the place. The thing is to really kill the bosses you have to grasp (and be good at) the chaining concept which us shooting nerds would welcome. I fo...
