      @DrippySlimeStar  What are you talking about?  The last 4 years have been reversing the trends that were set prior.  We're actually the only country with real growth, and Britain is set to be the second.

      1) China is crashing, even without the Corona Virus, their real growth stopped short, and most of it was false, due to printing cash and spending money on building projects for those ghost cities.  They account for the largest industrial growth in the world, but that slowed down 10 years ago when they already replaced almost every parts manufacturer, and since 5 years ago when China's internal growth was slowing and they were showing signs of crashing, industry has grown around the world should it collapse.

      2) Japan is stagnant.  They're barely hanging on right now due to over extension of their wealth into healthcare and paying to keep afloat companies that have seen negative growth or have filed multiple bankruptcies since the 90's, and the huge crash their market had, like Sony.  It's even worse given most of their industry was moved to China.  They've already borrowed against their own savings (the government borrowing against the savings from the Japanese people), rather than purchasing gold, or developing fuel sources, or generating enough of a product only they can make within their own territories as a natural or created resource.

      3) The EU is a fascist technocracy that is clamping down on everything and everyone, culling whatever freedoms are still left in their respective member countries.  The idea was to reset world socialism, and follow a combination of China's failed model and technocratic ideas developed since the 1750's Jacobins began the socialist movement worldwide.  You cannot speak freely there without being jailed if you insult certain groups, and it is easy to get an 8,000 Euro fine per photo or minute of video that you cannot prove YOU took yourself, if even stored on a website no one can find (or in a cloud) as a personal possession (they now have bots sniffing out potential "perpetrators") due to a new law that asserts absolute ownership to the original creator of any media, in rewriting their intellectual property right laws.  Unfortunately the person creating the content doesn't need to seek the people who have used their content, the EU respective governments are doing it themselves.  This is to shut down all non-official and non government licensed independent researchers and news outlets, with the backdrop of shutting down "fake news" and dangerous "conspiracy theories."  You can get a lot of jail time if the fines cannot be paid, or go to court and plead for mercy at the cost of essentially giving up your independent right to creating content that isn't sanctioned by the EU government and their respective media offices.

      This is also culling a lot of people who haven't been able to find a job, as in the EU there is NO UPWARD MOBILITY, and making a new business is very difficult compared to the US.  It takes several ministries in each country, and they have to do a full review including determining whether your business is necessary as in they feel there are enough of that type of business in the town or area, or if they could use more.  That makes it inflexible, and any fluctuation in the EU that isn't driven by the Bank of Germany dumping money into the EU through the World Bank, with predatory interest rates that punish EU countries that need those loans, because they cannot develop proper infrastructure internally without permission from the EU central government, those people in that country will pay in extraordinary taxes that bankrupt and force most people into near destitution, while still retaining their homes.  Greece is a good example of this, and the Republic of Ireland is headed in that direction already.  Spain has been in that situation for quite some time, though wasn't hit nearly as hard as Greece.

      As a result the amount of government corruption is rather high in local areas, and crime in Europe has never been higher, and not just due to immigrants who come from countries where crime is very high, they do not work (most of them get stipends from the country they live in, including free housing), and who are mostly young men with nothing to do and no incentive to work, and limited ability to change that if they should want to start their own business.  Historically, that leads to lots of crime and gang development, which we already seen.  Tack in other elements like group philosophies and lack of cultural integration, and you have people with no connection to the country they live in, nothing to do, money enough and a house to just live there and do whatever, and no healthy direction to take their daily lives.  Plus most of them come from cultures where drug usage and alcohol are not just prohibited, but considered immoral, and this is indoctrinated from an early age, which we know creates hardened belief systems.  Along with other "beliefs."  See rape gangs and grooming gangs.

      4) South Korea is stagnant, for many of the same reasons as with Japan, only for them, mostly the medical system, and their lacking industry or natural resources they can account towards their wealth as a backdrop for their currency.  They too based their currency on their savings and the sale of their technology, which is made in China and assembled in Korea and China.  Eventually they'll borrow too much against their own savings, which is dangerous in slow periods.

      5) Taiwan follows the US model and is sufficient.  Similarly with Switzerland.  The only difference is neither country spends much on military or fights in wars.  The Swiss are also a banking dumping ground for the world's wealthy, and the home of the most influential bank in the world.

      6) New Zealand and Australia are dying as a culture, and as countries.  They're culling everything that allowed them to develop independent of Britain (all the core concepts of British liberalism).  You can no longer speak freely against the government without being shut down, and in some cases, fined for "fake news, fomenting chaos, conspiracy theories, or fomenting anti-government sentiment."

      7) Central and South America have never taken off, due to hardcore socialist policies preventing normal development, and while there are capitalist policies allowing fast business growth, people do not own their own land, and as such, cannot borrow against it, but must take government sanctioned loans and haven't the form of bankruptcy we have to allow starting over.  So they don't have the ability to develop from the ground up, even if they allow for it.

      The countries that have seen real growth, have either done so through resource development, such as Venezuela with Oil, or Columbia with coffee (and cocaine), but a lot of resources and buildup came from external funding and dumping money into new industries.  It's almost exclusively Columbia, and to a lesser extent, Mexico, that's taken advantage of it and allowed more universal growth, rather than clamping down.  Argentina did for awhile, then pulled out the rug by removing bankruptcy protections, and so culled the burgeoning small business growth and middle class after other countries could produce the same goods more easily and cheaply.

      =======

      It's not like you won't enjoy yourself going to any of these countries, or that Europe isn't mostly safe, or that Australia isn't a fun place to go.  Yeah, they are, but that doesn't mean they haven't been clamping down or changing policies, and removing freedoms.  They are.  It's the nature of socialism.  You follow the breadcrumbs, and it stems to wealthy individuals looking for a new form of life, either idealistically, or as a means to control the population for a permanent nobility class where the poor feel satiated in some way where they won't bother the wealthy or revolt, and if they do, they're more likely to just leave the system, and with no power of their own, never pose a threat as they live their own lives as prometheus.

      =======

      Trump isn't perfect, but he's done more to prevent horrible outcomes planned for this country like the Amero, and the North American Union (not a conspiracy theory either, it's been written in books by Rumsfeld and a few other key neocons, and there were several planned treaties and existing new treaties under Bush Jr that moved us in that direction).  Or Operation Jade Helm, which has a lot of truth to it if you look at the fact Obama deported only families, not gang members, especially MS-13 gang members, and assured MS-13 gang members were insulated from harsh prosecution by placing in judges who commuted sentences, dumping most of them from jail into the street, along with a few other cartel members from the Sinaloa cartel and the Mexican Mafia, and a few other smaller violent gangs.

      Also preventing a lot of the planned changes to the US through the Climate Accords.  Climate change being a scape goat for forcing people to pay for their right to live.  Look at text books and how CO2 is referred to.  Trees now "store" CO2, which doesn't happen.  They use it in photosynthesis, then breath out the rest.  Around 80% of CO2 is produced by Volcanic activity, at a point where we have the least amount of Volcanic activity in the whole of recorded history, and by VERY large margins.  We have CO2 number tables that are grossly in accurate, with the lowest CO2 count back in the early 1900's, in the history of this planet.  Which was at the time of the largest number of wildfires, and the most destructive wildfires around the world, not just in the US.  CO2 is also used in our own bodies to carry oxygen to the blood, and help with healing and wound closure.  If we actually look at realistic charts of CO2 and plant/animal life, we need at least 10x what we have now, and we couldn't pull that off on our own, it will require titanic planetary forces (volcanoes).  You want to kill off life though, remove CO2, and that includes animals.  If it does anything in the atmosphere, it's stable and prevents overheating, as it's inert as a gas, and doesn't have any loose electrons to exchange.

      Just look into UN Agenda 21, and I don't mean sites talking about it, I mean read the actual plans, and track it to what a lot of countries are doing now, and what's planned for most of humanity, including a culling of anywhere from 1/3 to 7/8ths of the people alive today to allow for the new "smart cities" and control grid that the UN plans for.  Look at UN Agenda 2030, and how it's a slight rework on 21, with less population culling, but more of a control grid to maintain population control.

      I would also suggest looking into Cybernetics, and Alan Turings own words for his Turing machine.  Or the letter Aldous Huxley wrote to George Orwell a few months before Orwell died, after 1984 was printed.  That ties in nicely to the purpose of Cybernetics, and manipulating the human mind to control us like animals through initially stimulus response and dopamine, but later with slight alterations to specific frequencies, not unlike the Morlok control system in the far future of "The Time Machine."

      Look into the AI god created in silicon valley, and the church made to worship a system designed to maintain humanity as an overlord, to "prevent" wars and stuff.  That's not a joke when you consider most of Elon Musk's more cryptic, and not so cryptic statements about a literal AI overseer that babies humanity, and its implementation with 5G, as they currently don't have the bandwidth to generate that level of data flow, or specific control mechanism.  Not that I think that will happen as planned.  Every hard test of 5G leaves people sick, with headaches, it blocks oxygen from bonding with blood cells for a duration of exposure, the closer to 60 ghz, the worse the symptoms and faster people begin experiencing heavy dehydration.  However it shouldn't be long before they figure out how to make it work on lower frequencies with smaller meta packages at shorter bursts, or switch to new fiber, and use low-tech frequency ranges while data collection is done on a grid rather than wirelessly.  The point is, there is a long-standing plan to bring about a technocratic environment where you're constantly bombarded with new hits of digital Soma to keep you happy and complacent, or keep your attention away from internal dialogue and issues with the current state of the world.  It's very much in our face since the 70's, but most people pay scant attention.

      I'm not saying Trump is preventing everything from happening, but he is preventing a scenario where the US goes down in flames, as what we were primed for.

      Remember Obamacare?  If you look at early statements made by Pelosi, she made it abundantly obvious it was planned to fail, as the nature of its system was designed to exponentially increase costs to the point where it was impossible to afford, and the government could no longer subsidize.  Then bring in all the insurance companies under a single-payer umbrella.  What Trump did was postpone and slow down the bleeding.  Just prior to his tweaks, the cost growth was almost 3x what it is now, and then it was exponentially increasing, now it's increasing by similar margins to the growth prior to Obama making changes to medical care as a lead-in TO Obama care.  So about 3~10% growth, rather than 9~30%.  Still needs addressing, yes, but he's at least assured other things can be tackled.

      We actually are respected now...well, not in China, but then China respects no one, not even China.  They're still buying up Africa as a backstop.

      Now going back to Climate Change, if you look at the actual problems the world has, and there are innumerable.  Not a single real problem is being addressed by the UN.

      1) Overfishing, not from Western countries, but from China.  The Western overfishing is at times a problem still, but there are tweaks to assure fisheries restock and heal.  The biggest issue now is the dumping of waste in the Mediterranean, which has its own impact on marine regrowth.  Fecal matter and pee isn't a problem, but direct garbage and some chemical waste that still gets dumped, however is.  If they used more natural-based, it wouldn't be an issue, unless it's heavy in nitrogen, and then you have algea blooms.

      China however, is fishing the world into oblivion to fill a market that wastes more than 2/3rds of their intake, far more than us.  Their internal fisheries for farmed fish are for the West, not the Chinese, who prefer to get fresh caught, which is positive, but they ignore the issues of overfishing.  Yes the ocean bounces back quickly, but at the rate they're going, it will take extended years to rebuild fishing off Asia and Africa, and soon other parts of the world.

      2) Poaching is a huge thing again, thanks also to China.  Rhino horns and African horns are back on the market.  So are Tiger's teeth and penises, all due to certain quack elements in Chinese traditional medicine who feel certain body parts from exotic and powerful animals are natural aphrodisiacs, or will enhance growth.  Despite nothing to base this on, even in their own history.  Most of that is based on essentially rumour and superstition, initially stemming probably from cannibalistic practices of eating the strongest warrior from the opposing tribe to gain his "power" so as to defeat the other tribesmen in the next battle.   Or maybe just a similar mindset just redirected by pure belief that the soul/spirit of the animal transmits to the man who kills and eats it, reformed in today's world where it isn't just a single nobleman or king going out to hunt such a beast for themselves, but instead a market where 3rd parties provide the good.

      3) China and India are polluting the oceans at FAR higher rates than we ever did.  Over 2/3rds of the Pacific plastic deposit already belongs to China alone.  India is the second largest contributor, after both we and Japan began the issue, though we both corrected it soon after (and not through recycling, which is a lie btw).

      Much of that trash is also due to recycling systems, where most governments, including the US, do not have adequate plastic recycling companies and factories (though we at least store it here and have a larger overall number so can over time account for our own waste).  Though countries like Australia and New Zealand do not (same with almost all of Western Europe), because it's VERY hard to get the proper licenses and loans to start a plastic recycling company.  So they instead pay countries like Malaysia to take their plastic trash, much of which isn't properly sorted, so it has a bunch of other stuff, including items that cannot be recycled without proper furnaces like metal and glass (glass is no longer recycled as the cost is too high, and not enough companies want to invest in solar panel system and electrical furnaces, which are VERY expensive up front, and they make very little in resale, even in the US).

      So that gets dumped on islands, which eventually leads back out to sea when storms hit (or bombards small villages).

      4) The great pacific garbage patch.  Do I need to say more?

      5) Improper forest burning techniques, and a need for more controlled burns, not just to prevent forest fires, but because forests NEED the ash from fires to grow properly.

      6) Nitrogen deposits from large agricultural, mostly in the US, but also an issue in Europe, Africa, China, and to a lesser degree Japan and Korea (who have been combating this with more crop rotations).

      This is due mostly to corn and both ethanol and low-grade livestock feed.  Rather than rotate, they continue planting, and to avoid soil resource depletion, they rebuild with nitrogen enriched soil.

      Doesn't help they use GMO's, which are their own problem, and generate estrogen mimickers in the livestock that eats it, while the ethanol industry requires more energy than it produces, by a fair margin.

      Could be fixed easily by legalizing and heavily promoting Hemp as a rotation crop (which restores soil nutrients, balance, and biome (the general pH balance, number of living small organisms that devoid old/dead parts to create new minerals in the soil, mosses, and fungi).  Plus Ethanol from corn does not burn cleanly, no matter how its treated, and will create gunk and build-up in your engine that is VERY hard to remove.

      7) Suppressed technology, like the engines built in the early and mid 1900's in the US and Europe, that allow for 300+ miles per gallon, depending on the type of injection, and the ratio of gas to liquid in it, allowing cleaner burning and less fuel loss, along with tanks that don't leak (that's mostly fixed now, but that was an intentional design to keep people returning to the gas line).

      8 ) and the list goes on....and on....and on of ignored and unaddressed problems.

      Now, is Trump focused on most of these?  No, but he is creating the conditions where a LOT more companies are up and coming that are dealing with them on their own, and growing much faster than under Obama, due to economic growth and thus more money for people to dump into charities and organizations that attempt to actually address real-world problems.  However not one single candidate in history, save Barry Goldwater, has ever directly addressed real environmental concerns.  Carter kind of did at one point, but dropped it soon after becoming the nominee.  He at least inferred there are more problems than the ones focused on by environmental groups, or what the EPA looks into, as it turns a blind eye to real problems.

      There is no EPA regulation that has helped the environment since the first three years after its creation.  Pretty much everything else has been for one reason only, to create extra taxes for government control, regulation, and growth.  That's it.  Rolling back 90% of all their regulations would offer no negatives, except to allow newer business growth.  The exception seems to be in fracking, with legitimate fears of water source contamination.  Not that there aren't EPA scientists who do ring the bell of fear over real environmental issues, there are, but they never see regulatory pushes in the upper echelons.

      I can see that.  Not that he's incapable of creating characters with a range of looks and styles that would be appealing from a purely physical aspect in the sense of generating male attention and desire, it's not like his animation style has ever been geared towards romance.  Nor his studio.  That doesn't mean it couldn't happen, but there is that sense of range between Bulma and Chichi, neither of which invoke a sense of girlishness except in very rare instances, and then it's not adult female girlishness...it's more like a child (or a child's tantrum...I have to wonder at what type of woman his wife is, lol).

      Good point.  DQ needs a player controlled character development system that leads to heavy innuendo and potential marriage.

      Also @Erdrick The Hero  I'm talking alongside normal marketing, as an opening.  Remove your feelings from the equation, and you have to admit it would help once that standard marketing continues.  Plus, the phraseology of SE and Horii today, seems to indicate they want to continue DQ's growth in the West.  So I wouldn't allow past events to overshadow future promises and potential outcomes.

      @eal  True, but excess copies for Atlus is 100k+ sales.  SE it's 250k+.

      I'm not so sure it turns off existing fanbases.  That certainly didn't happen for Etrian Odyssey Nexus when they took forever to announce it, leading some to fear maybe it won't see release outside Japan (not Yangus though...nor myself).

      It's impossible to gauge as there's little to no data to work on, and sales related to similar tactics are hard to predict.  If the fanbase has only one option, they're more likely to continue consuming, despite any personal feelings.

      What I usually find in terms of statements made for why people leave gaming fanbases, isn't abuse from the companies (as those people tend to buy anyway), but drastic changes to the core gameplay or general story elements.  Of this we have an abundance of data to work with, from Final Fantasy to Suikoden, to Castlevania, to Metroid, to even Mario.

      Even real numbers to work with along with statements and continued lack of support from certain sections of a fanbase.

      So maybe you could be right, and it could harm a fanbase, but again, there is zero data to work from.

      @Erdrick The Hero I still think it would help.  Persona has one thing DQ doesn't: heavy presence on social media.  DQ11 helped push it a bit further (sadly DQB2 is the second most popular, but nowhere near the presence of even Persona Q, let alone the dance based Persona games).

      It's something that would have a better chance of getting the newer, younger, and more active twitter/instagram/etc. fans to start demanding it.

      I'd rather clever viral marketing to spread DQ ever further and farther than it's gone yet, to increase the fanbase and assure it's secured, than not, despite the S&M nature of this particular form, given what we've been through in the past.  For me, I'm already confident any game done this way, would be a shoe-in for release already, much as I believe Atlus is intentionally trolling while definitely planning on Switch releases.

      It's viral marketing.  Bait, tease, deny, ignore to force more demand and free press.  You'd think SE would take a few pages out of Atlus' book for growing small niche fanbases.

      It's a good thing DQ already has substantial name recognition in the RPG world thanks to the internet (and DW1...well, for those aware DQ = DW whether they've played DQ since the original NES game).  That plus actual marketing certainly helped, but it would be really cool to see this kind of coaxing for free viral marketing going forward (unlikely, it's not their style).

  15. The Nintendo Switch officially outsold the SNES at around 52 million units. I wonder how long would it take for the Nintendo Switch to reach Wii numbers.

  16. I am home almost three weeks of hospital stay and two surgeries, thanks to pneumonia.

  17. So, for Christmas, I bought DQ7 3DS again.  Third copy, third Super Kiefer.  Yeah, I really love making these.  Technically the 4th, but I didn't keep my first.  Also decided to make a more refined guide to attempt to get to par at around the 100 hour marker, as I'd rather a lower game time than normal.  The other two are 600 and 900 respectively.

    Plus this is the first one I have two systems to use for self-trading from the get-go, and I love it.

    Also got Etrian Odyssey 5 and Nexus, a 128GB card for my Switch.  So last year was a pretty good year for RPG's.

  19. If you're contemplating shopping at Gamestop, don't:

      At that time, the practices indicated in the video weren't fully in action.  They're there now, and the indicators are pretty shady, and Gamestop going down a pretty dark path, pile driving deeper into the mire they've been digging into for some time now.

      Anyway, the funny thing Yangus, that was THE only good time to go to a Gamestop to buy games in recent periods.  The stores were too busy moving out merchandise, and corporate was in chaos in turn-over and restructuring, that they weren't even offering their usual GI subscriptions and Pro membership.  There was even talk of removing the Power Player and Power Player Pro memberships after the closeouts.  I guess they moved away from that course, and just landed on reducing the bonuses, especially the only worthwhile one: 10% off used.

      Like you, I didn't take advantage of it, though at the time it was more of a money issue.  

      It's sad too, I've been watching Spawnwave since he was at 14k subscriptions or so.  He's been taking in Gamestop refurbishes for awhile, and recently they've upgraded their game and are actually attempting to do a good job (attempting, not doing an actual good job), but the nostalgia push for older games and systems seems to have paid off, like they actually held onto their Funcoland extras, in anticipation for eventual nostalgia.

      They were actually going into a better direction at first...then this drops.  Seems like they put up a corporate facade to get people back in the door.  Which is sad because they were my goto place if Amazon prices were skyrocketing on a new copy of an old game, that it's typical to find in at least one Gamestop in my area.  No longer worth the effort.  I'll buy from ebay or track down from other stores now.

      @Twinkie In this case, I have to agree.  It's too early for a Switch Pro at this point.  Not given system sales are picking up, and games per sale are also much higher than PS4 or XB3.

      They'll eventually have to put one out, but only if they're seeing trouble on the horizon due to how many people have purchased the PS5 and XB4.  Until then, they'll just keep doing small hardware revisions as slightly tweaked and upgraded chipset models come out.

      It also tracks better with Nintendo's stated plan to keep the Switch going beyond the normal system cycle period.  Eventually leading to new chipsets that allow slower general integration for older system purchasers to buy into the next line at a lower price point than the PS5/XB4, and from there new slight upgrades.  So rather than a true "pro" down the line, more like the next model tegra, but maintaining OS consistency and just beefing up the hardware and range of functionality in the OS to compensate with expanded power.  That would keep things going nicely for a long time.  I just hope they push companies to release patches to upgrade older games on the newer system, ala Sony/MS, instead of playing it the 3DS to New 3DS way.  That would keep interest going for older games as well.

      ======

      Anyhow, I would love to see X as well.  Wii U's are going WAAAAAY up in price now.  I was hoping they'd go down, but demand is high, and I missed my opportunity to buy one around $200, unlike the DS line, which is now below 50 consistently (ebay now, amazon is now going way up, but then most resellers are switching to ebay only, even refurbishing groups).  They're still decently priced on ebay for a refurbished, but price is going up, not down.  Just not as fast as Amazon 3rd parties.

      If Sega were smart, they would consider re-releasing Phantasy Star Online Episodes 1+2+4 as an offline experience with ad-hoc multiplayer that doesn't require a server, but instead the system to handle a 4 player session using Nintendo's ID system to connect without need for Nintendo's online subscription.  That's a pipe dream though, but it would make me happy to see.

      Dragon Quest Heroes 1+2 I think is a likely candidate.  I don't care much about it, but it's good to see more DQ releases here, and I know quite a few people sad at the lack of Switch releases.  My one gripe though, is Nintendo's printing press versus SE.  Prices actually go down on SE games released in physical format on the Switch.  They only go up when Nintendo handles them.  Unless numbers are beyond expectations, but so far the only two games to see actual price cuts on the open market (while the Nintendo store still lists at full price), are DQ's 9 and 7 3DS.  That's it.  Everything else has gone down a tiny bit, then remains at full price until Nintendo stops printing, then shoots up.  Builders 1 could potentially match DQ6 DS in a year if demand keeps up as it is.  Unfortunately Ebay is the best place to go for Builders 1.  Target and Walmart seem the only two places selling for normal price that still have some new copies left.

      Wind Waker and Twilight Princess would be awesome.  As would a potential remake of A Link to the Past.  Actually, of any potential Zelda game, ALttP remake would get me the most excited.  Though I don't like LA's art style.  It's a bit too disassociated with itself...I don't know how else to put it.  It looks too odd, but if they take that route, I'd still play it.

      Unlikely, but I would love to see Skies of Arcadia Legends rebuild, to test the waters on Switch, with enhanced graphics.
