Re: Errors on game entry pages

The main site is completely broken for me. If you're working on it anyway it's probably just how it is now and you're aware of it. Reporting just in case. What's the symptom? The menu and the pages therein should be working. The forums keep crashing... quite franky on something that shouldn't even ...

Re: Errors on game entry pages

Thanks! I'll have some reading to do this weekend. I noticed you changed the format of the URLs, including in the forum (i.e., it's "forum.gamengai.com" now instead of "gamengai.com/forum"). Are you okay with all the broken links this will produce? Think of all the poor people w...

Re: GP's music picks

I hope you didn't pay too much for yours, because Ghostly just repressed it. They don't often do represses, and a lot of their older vinyl was limited to something silly like 1000, so this might be a good chance to get an extra copy before prices go nutty. Fuck... I got it quite a bit cheaper than ...

Re: Ghost in the Shell Live Action Trailer

Indeed they don't. Everything I've read has panned out exactly as I thought it would after seeing the trailers. Any GitS I've watched (which is all of 'em sans Arise) are brutally difficult in terms of material. I have to either pause and rewind or use subtitles regularly. The vocab and density of t...

Re: [PS4/PSV] YU-NO

As someone who has never seen a PS4 game in a store (yes, I live in Cave on Mars) do they all feature an orange band? Please tell me no.

FWIW, I bought my son a Wii-U for xmas in 2015. Fucking thing wouldn't pair w/the controller. Wound up not sending it in for like 3 months.

I beat it several times, but can't quite remember. I'd have to whip out the DC and play through it. I'm sure i have a save on a VMU... somewhere.

Re: Import stores list

Anyway, my memory is kind of fuzzy so don't quote me on this, but I seem to recall him mentioning (on a certain retrogaming forum) that he "force-bids" on Y!J auctions (i.e. without asking for permission first) and deals with the fallouts (e.g. negative feedback) later. If the seller is l...

Re: GP's music picks

A rare copy of A Certain Distance by Lusine is up for a mere 27.99 EUR on Discogs. Shipping to the US is pricey, but even so, it's almost half of what I just paid for a copy, and a fraction of what it usually runs on Discogs.

Re: Nintendo Switch

yeah, the reviews of BotW seem to be pretty undeniable. We knew the major publications would rate it 10/10 and wank to it, but even hard core nerds that are not so easily amused are giving it full points. I've read a few "not impressed" reports at shmups, but most of it is beyond positive....

Re: Import stores list

Yahoo Japan's interface, like 99% of interfaces in Japan, is dated and flawed, but they have perfected the art of the auction. "It's in mint condition, but if you demand pristine condition, please refrain from bidding".

Re: Import stores list

It was high drama back then, for sure. Wish i had the English threads where they defended their actions. Last "debate" I recall was on Assembler, was one here I advocated a well-picked collection is far more impressive, and one of them argued (ad naseum) that a complete collection (IE, the...

Re: Import stores list

Yamatoku was (is?) one of the few accounts back in the day that actually had the same name, or similar enough, on both YJ and Ebay. I'm not totally sure, but they may have even said in their YJ Profile that they were resellers. Obviously the collectors (especially the Japanese ones) aren't huge on t...

I pre-ordered the vinyl months ago, and have yet to download the album (might just wait for the vinyl) but Sensorimotor by Lusine is out on Ghostly.

Cheers for that. The screen scratching scares me... especially these days with very scratch-resistant glass.

I'm with you on that. Honestly, I have little time now, and I'm trying to do some really expensive shit, so I have to hold off. And realistically, if it's in English I might have the GF watch me play Zelda...at least a little. If it's Japanese that's not gonna happen. Also gotta think of the Mario g...
