Famitsu’s Most Wanted Games, July 25

By Heath | July 25, 2014 at 7:31 am

The most useless thing about Famitsu is its reviews. The second most useless thing is the most wanted chart. While it can give a glimpse of what’s gonna sell, it’s also easy to manipulate, as just a few voters can lob a game like The Last Remnant’s PS3 version (which doesn’t exist) onto the charts ahead of surefire sellers like Phantasy Star Nova. It’s kind of funny. Anyway, this is the internet, where people crave garbage, so I’m glad to be your garbage man. Here you are, you ignorant pieces of shit. Here’s Famitsu’s 30 Most Wanted games, as voted by their readers.

PSP = Not Worth Licensing Fees, PS4/Xbox One = Apparently Worth It

By Heath | June 21, 2014 at 9:42 am

Welp, since PS4 and Xbox One are getting an HD version of Final Fantasy Type-0, and this will be localized, I suppose it’s time to update my article on the music rights.

Indeed. The cost of localization (which would include fees for licensing that music) would not have been made back with a PSP and/or Vita game in North America, but Square Enix feels it can make back that dough with a console outing. Not surprising.

I can’t even fucking believe this

Dragon Quest VIII Mobile Port Localized, Still Awful

By Heath | June 1, 2014 at 2:01 am

Remember this crap? The awful-looking mobile port of Dragon Quest VIII? Well now it’s now available on international iOS stores, and way overpriced.

Showing a gift for salesmanship as much as a gift for making shitty ports, Square Enix had this to say:

- Save your game often.
- When suspending play, please make sure to close the app completely via the recently used apps list.
- Frequent crashes can sometimes be remedied by restarting your device.

Not even joking. How about fix your products instead of just telling people to save often because of the glitches? So there’s that.

.hack//Versus and .hack//The Movie on sale at huge discount

By Heath | May 9, 2014 at 9:47 am

Just saw that Play-Asia has the .hack Movie marked down from $70 to $19.99.

.hack//Versus is a fighting game with .hack characters.  At this point in time, it can take a pretty long time to find players online, but you know what?  Fighting games survived pretty well before online gaming was a thing.  It’s not one for the record books, but I found it enjoyable.

The movie was slow paced overall, but worth a watch for .hack fans, especially since we get virtually no new material these days.  ;_;

I played the game and watched the movie and reviewed the combo pack at PlayStation LifeStyle a while ago.  You can check that out here and if it sounds like something you would dig, order away.  I’d of course really appreciate use of this link, because then I get like 50 cents or a buck or something, which in turn helps me snag more stuff to review ^_^
