Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

I've been on an SFC kick these past few weeks. I started with some DoReMi Fantasy, Magical Pop'n, then Demon's Blazon action. All were easy but fun, though Demon's Blazon disappointed me Are these originals? I have recently peaked on YJ and Ebay at some SFC classics. Magical Pop'n... fuck me in the...

Re: Sharehouses in Japan

What is your budget? I highly recommend Airbnb. I've found some decent places quite cheap. There was one in between Yoyogi Uehara and Komaba Toudaimae I stayed at for some 4000 yen a night or so. It was a humble room w/ a quite shit bed, but it worked for me. Just make sure you book in advance. So m...

Re: NHK TV fees

Technically, as long as the TV has an antenna, you are on the hook to pay. However, there is no legal recourse if you don't. (Japanese honor system). It's a pretty effed up system. They will make tons more money if they just somehow figure out how to deduct it automatically. However, as per before, ...

How long had it been? I find those games are use it or lose it, and by that a break of a few weeks means you're done.

Oh how the mighty have fallen. The topic came up in a thread at Shmups not long ago. Nobody seems to know for sure, but making games they are not.

Re: [ETC] Try Tower Akihabara

Shou probably knows but it's hard to catch him these days. TRY was definitely conveniently located if you hit Akihabara shops. Maybe it's time to embrace Nakano? Not exactly next door to Takadanobaba but not a huge stretch either.

Hmm... I don't have a windows box handy. I have an old ass version of Safari which is not working, but latest Chrome and Firefox on my Mac are fine... Chromium on Linux also fine.

Any chance you can check your console for errors? Thanks man!

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: 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...
