Comment on NVIDIA Unveils Project Shield Handheld by Imyou:

Do you hear that? It’s the echo of the market crash that almost killed gaming back when everyone and their dog was making shitty Atari games and they buried tens of thousands of copies of ET in mass graves.

Somehow I don’t think what this generation needs is 10 consoles to choose from. [conspiracy theory]Maybe it’s a false flag operation from PC giants like Valve and nVidia to devalue the console market, crash it, and pull people back into PC gaming so instead of needing a new GPU every 8-12 years, they start needing one every 3 years again… [/conspiracy theory]

    To clarify… The no. 1 seller isn’t the only success in the console wars. For instance, the DS and PSP were both successful, viable, profitable systems even if the DS won out for total sales (when I last saw…) However, making the big assumption that all these new Android consoles actually draw enough of the market to them, there’s a theoretical point where instead of a million consoles sold by each company (just a sample, not total sales lol), there’s 100k here, 100k there, maybe 50k for …

    It’s not that bad, apparently. ZUN describes it as a “peace-addled world” (平和ボケした世界) and both people-eating and youkai-exterminating appear to be sayings, as none of his works(?) contain reference to actual cases of either. The only youkai that get killed are fairies, who come back later. The bigger ones lose the match and then hang out with the winners. Villagers only go missing or get eaten in doujinshi ZUN wasn’t involved in. Youkai appear even in the human village. Rinnosuke is even half …

    Touhou? Anyone? C’mon. Don’t know who they asked though – maybe just people who know games from TV and magazine ads? And have never been somewhere moderately geek friendly, plastered with Touhou stuff…

    Good list. Some write-ins, because that’s always fun… Macross 7 (don’t watch this show) Trigun Blue Seed Ranma 1/2 OP 1

    It is. Sadly, it costs a ton to make anime, which is why we see so much unoriginal trash – making a big investment like that, they need to be sure it makes a profit. Original stuff is risky. The West is more of a secondary market, where they slash prices like crazy because it’s more about licensing what’s there than recouping production costs. Still, it’s practically free now. In the 90s, it was pretty normal to see $30-50 for a VHS tape of 30-90 minutes of a dub.

    They’re “tsumifukuro”. Think they’re from Touhou memes. I’ve only seen them in jokes.
