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 ...

Re: Shenmue III

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...

Re: Blaster Master Zero

Dude... teach them chaining or put them up for adoption!

Told myself I was gonna get a switch and play SM Odyssey, but still working on the house. Will probably hook up my XBox and play JSRF soon... kinda got a hankering for it and little else.

It's especially great when vinyl shipping boxes are seemingly perfect for your PCBs.


Back in my earlier nerdy days those were known as LD boxes. :)

Is Ninja Gaiden Black the same caliber of difficulty as Shinobi on the PS2? That was a bit of a whore.

Re: Japanese Gaming Sites

But I'm sure there must be some explanations other than "the small screen of phones" and "PCs are not popular" for Japanese website design. I only have to point out Chinese Internet websites which look equally shitty. Maybe it's some cultural preference. After all, just because ...

Re: Ghost in the Shell Live Action Trailer

I'm also a big fan of the anime movie end fight (battling the Tachikoma under gentle rain in the museum) which is basically anime action perfection so if the movie reused that scene too, I doubt it's anywhere as good as the original. I'm not going to check to confirm. I'll just say... you pretty mu...
