  1. Past hour
  2. I mean, they do produce a ton of clickbait and I make fun of them all the time, I’ve done it on here, in fact, but if an article is good, it’s good. Good content shouldn’t be disregarded because it’s on a bad website. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
  3. Oh come on eal, you should have known I was talking about the click bait articles they produce. Now whether Kotaku is worse than IGN or the other way around...that would be interesting to figure out.
  4. I mean, the guy who covered Dragon Quest XI for Kotaku said it was one of the best games of all time, said he played the Japanese version for over 300 hours, and wrote an exhaustive review of the game, and said that a number of Dragon Quest games are just as good as Chrono Trigger, which is frequently touted as the best RPG ever made. Should we ignore that?
  5. Today
  6. I think he completely misunderstands what a Puff-Puff is (AKA in American terms a Motorboat). He made a reddit posts about it and apparently he thought it was sex.
  7. Jared Petty is an okay reviewer. That comment about bunny girls was just ugggggh.
  8. I ask that question whenever someone posts a link to Kotaku.com. That website is awful and shouldn’t be given any attention.
  9. IGN's YouTube content is decent enough. Their reviews and such are the perfect length for when I need something to watch while eating breakfast. And as I've said a few times before, while Petty's comments in the review were dumb and likely a product of the silly times were in, if you check out his Twitter, he seems to be one of the good ones. There's no vitriol or spite. No elitism. No political ranting. It's nice to see, because I'm so tired of seeing nothing but nastiness from sad journalists and industry "pros."

    Well, WTF. They claimed they delayed the release of the translation for 10 months because of that book. Maybe story elements that were required to play the game had to be added (they did say they added a couple dozen pages) but that hardly seems likely in the grand scheme of translations to take a full quarter of their development time. Oh well, so that's now less impressive, but I'm looking forward to the turn-based combat nonetheless! Thanks for that, didn't realize they did that. Then again, I didn't do my homework well once I saw PS3 wasn't turn-based years ago. That and no PS3 were always going to make the game a hard pass despite my interest level. But DS? I'm interested!

    That’s the Steelbook Edition. The Wizard’s Edition came with a book:

    It's the DS version, only in Japan. 100% turn-based, not what the PS3 version was. Also a ton more story than got cut down for the dumb US folk. It came with a 352 page book of lore, stories, and spells. You had to look in there for the DS version, it specifically tells you pages to read for hints and answers and how to draw the spells on the touch screen of the DS. Been waiting for this since I learned it was a thing this summer and really read up on it. That's no leather-bound 352 page book.

    Did I win? And why am I amazing for that, do they suck?

    I believe they made a physical version of this for the collector’s edition of the PS3 game. Why is a fan translation of a game that’s been out for 6 years coming now?

    I shouldn't say such things. Ni No Kuni is calling. The fan translation being released amazed me, but the full translation of the 350+ book that came with it is too good not to get into next.

  18. Oops. Didn't read down. People still visit IGN? I think my adblocker blocks that entire website as paid trash.

    DQXI Monster Wiki Broken

    I can dump the monster database to a spreadsheet and we can try to figure out the missing monster relations, but I don't have the book that AerynB was using to get most of that info (which probably doesn't include XI anyway). And I don't know if she just assigned numbers to each monster and kept adding +1 or if there is some sort of master list she was going by.
  20. Alarming? Dude's name is literally Petty. What douchebag website does he work for? IGN as I mentioned above. He’s the guy who gave the game a 8.8 out of 10 and had almost nothing but nice things to say, but the video review had an overwhelming amount of dislikes because he made minor mention that he didn’t like the bunny suit side quest with Jade.

    Never played a single FF game though I do hear a lot about them.

    Good. Award shows should die a firey death in the depths of hell anyway.

    Unpopular opinion around here, but I always felt like FFIX was the worst... At least out of the first 10.

    What RPG's are you currently playing?

    The argument is usually between 2 or 8 being “the worst,” but then you have people who are more vocal about 13 and 15 being the worst. 2 I can look past since it was only the 2nd game of the series and did have some good ideas, while I have no opinion of 8. It’s like my approach with Suikoden 2: I knew going in people really enjoyed the game, but I didn’t want to go in thinking “Oh yeah, this is gonna be the best!” and instead tried to stay neutral until the game really clicked with me.

    different. Heck, so was FF2 but I really really really liked that one!

    What's New with you?

    Took a year off from the Den's annual Fantasy Football League as we had declining membership, but kept up the family league & work league due to peer and wife pressure. The family league I snuck into the playoffs on the last weekend but will probably exit based upon me not checking my lineup before the 1pm games (one guy sat out). Thought I was a goner anyway as my 7-7 team was taking on my 14-0 aunt who retired last year and apparently has nothing better to do. It's a surprisingly close one and I'll likely lose by single digits. D'oh. Work league is usually a burned $20 investment yearly as competition is as rough as the old TV show The League. Somehow made the playoffs for the first time in 4 years as the last seed. Took out the top player last week and am cruising to another upset this week by almost doubling my crippled opponent's score. Blind dumb luck, but looks like I should finish at worst 2nd place and get some $$$ back. I should dump out next year and call it even (especially since I swear they plan the live draft on Plattym4's birthday each year)!
