Comment on Dead or Alive 5 Plus Promising “Touch ‘Em Up” Action by Takuya:
Well, if someone wants to play those interactive Hollywood movies the system probably sucks. And while I spontaneously bought a 3DS without a second thought because it’s so cheap, I had to think about the Vita for several months before buying one. So I guess the masses are even more hesitant when it comes to the price.
I got a Vita because my stupid 3DS doesn’t let me import Japanese games and I wanted Project Diva f. During it’s life time I will probably get a bunch of Japanese niche titles like Senran Kagura and Mon Mon.
But really, what annoys me the most about the system is the crappy image compression Sony uses for wallpapers. It’s also used in Project Diva for the loading screens, so they probably supply this shit as a default library in their SDK. Wasn’t Sony boasting about the superior quality of the Vita’s display? Then why use this shitty image compression on the first screen that appears when someone turns on the system? Really, that image quality… it uses ultra lowres chroma subsampling without any filtering and has massive problems with high contrast graphics. It basically looks like these Cinepak-compressed videos on 90’s multimedia CD-ROMs. Basically it’s a giant middle finger to people who want to use anime wallpapers.

Why should fujoshi not read shounen manga? I’m a guy in my twenties and I like to spice up my anime queue of mostly seinen stuff with kodomo and shoujo anime. There is the full range, from Precure to Full Moon wo Sagashite, Fushigi Yuugi (that freaking epic ending song!) and even Gravitation (wich turned me into a better person, because I used to avoid gay people as if they’re contagious.) I didn’t count Boku no Pico, because everybody watched that. Depending on my mood I might want to watch …
- Symphogear G Shocks Fans:
Well, that anime made perfectly clear what main characters are worth in the first episode of the first season. It’s one of these series where they try to get free PR by shocking fans shitless. Mutilating or killing a cute girl always get’s the job done, so nothing is really surprising about this. I immediately drop a series when I notice they are going in this direction. BTW, are guro fans more the sadistic type who enjoy to see girls getting mutilated, or are they rather the masochistic type, …
- Lady Gaga “As Unrecognisable As AKB48 Without Makeup!”:
Cracked just had an article about celebrity pics like this and listed her too. “OMG! She just looks like a normal person without makeup!” – Not really a shocking revelation.
- Square Enix Announces New Star Ocean: “You Guessed It!”:
I read this much: “Square Enix announces…”, and my brain auto-completed: “…new casual card game”, before I had a chance to read the title. This fast reaction indicates that it was a reflex. My brain associates SE with bullshit, on a subconscious layer. If they continue like that it will be merged with my DNA and future offspring will be wary of SE instinctively.
- High School DxD NEW: “Back With More Nipples Than Ever”:
Whoah! Rias looks so gorgeous again! Her boobs are nice too, but more importantly I could spend all day obsessing over that hair and those eyes. Combine all that with her personality and you get a character I can genuinely care about. Something I can’t find in oppai anime very often.
