It looks like there's at least 5 different types of carrying cases, including one made of real leather in case you want to wrap your Vita in dead cow.

Re: Software is for pussies.

I've always wondered that. I've been under the impression that the US and Canada are both lumped into the "North America" region by most publishers.


Incidentally, is there actually a place I can get European games from? With an American credit card?

Re: Software is for pussies.

I do not expect feeble minds to comprehend the insight I possess.
If that's true, why exactly are you waiting for the American version?
The packaging counts, too!

Re: Software is for pussies.

So why do you insist on buying game hardware on launch at full price with no games, exactly? If you manage to figure that out, please let me know! Probably for the same reason that I have two dozen pieces of game hardware over a decade old that I will never use sitting in my closet. They're like, y...

Software is for pussies.

Picked up my Vita today. No games, as usual - I think the only thing I'm waiting for at the moment is Gravity Daze which is supposed to come out in February. I guess that's still better than the nine months I had to wait for something to play on the 3DS. Uncharted is out now (supposedly it's the bes...

Re: Don't step in the Pharaoh

So what do you guys think of that, anyway? At this point it just looks like it could be any other zombie game. Years ago when I was doing research for my thesis project, my crazy Korean professor made me watch this zombie movie I didn't like that had a premise almost exactly the same as this. I gues...

Re: PS3 recommendations

Looks like you've covered all the bases. I'd suggest moving Braid from "not sure" to "definitely" and I'd also add Street Fighter 4 (though you'll need an arcade stick to play it properly). I enjoyed both Heavy Rain and L.A. Noire, but they're not the sort of games I'd recommend to everyone. Try the...

Oh yeah, I still do Magicbox every day, I guess 'cause there's no politics, it's just like "here's what's happening" in charming broken English. And it takes like 2 minutes to see everything.

Way too much coverage of Final Fantasy crap, though.

Re: Don't step in the Pharaoh

Hell man, I don't even remember which one that was much less what I wrote about it.

Penny Arcade's the only webcomic I read (with respect to people here who I know write those!). I actually stopped for years and just started again on a whim I guess about six months ago. That shit is still funny.

They cost 60 yen more than a normal nikuman and taste about half as good. I'm not sure if it's because the meat is lower quality or if it's just g...

Re: Don't step in the Pharaoh

Fair enough about summarizing an overall opinion, but even then I'd be hard pressed to come up with more than 3 or 4 phrases with which to do that effectively - I sure the hell couldn't come up with 10 categorically distinct divisions for my opinion on anything . And I don't think anyone could. Havi...

Re: Don't step in the Pharaoh

I get what you all are saying, but I mean, geeze. When I find a mainstream game reviewers that is too complex and nuanced to ever be properly summarized by a numerical score, I will let you guys know! That's the thing, though, it's not about summarizing. I can say for example there's not enough gra...

Re: Don't step in the Pharaoh

I have no problems with numerical ratings for the most part if they're backed up by a solid review explaining why they came up with what they had and (preferably) not listed until the end of the review. Explain to me exactly what information that number possesses that the preceding text would have ...

Re: Don't step in the Pharaoh

Well if you want a consensus, there's only two answers: I liked it or I didn't like it. Thumbs up or thumbs down. One or two. There's no objective way to quantify anything inbetween. What's a 7? I sort of kind of liked it? Versus an 8, I kind of almost really liked it? Is there a formula for this I ...

Re: Don't step in the Pharaoh

Numerical ratings attempt to rank games as being objectively "better" or "worse" than others, but the very definition of "better" and "worse" is entirely subjective. Ergo, numerical ratings are completely useless to anyone but the person who made them, and it's unlikely even he would come up with t...

Numerical ratings try to put into mathematical terms something that is innately not mathematical. Basically, they are bullshit.

Re: Don't step in the Pharaoh

I was literally one death away from giving up in that underwater chase before I finally pulled it off. In retrospect it doesn't seem like it was too far to backtrack, but at the time I would've told you otherwise. And I assume this is from an early stage. I'm sure I'll pick this up when it comes out...

I assume at least one of you shitnozzles must have picked up Uncharted 3 by now. For mysterious reasons, Amazon won't ship it here, so I had it shipped home so my parents can eventually send it to me when they feel like it. Hopefully that will be before Christmas.
