Joyswag: Kid Icarus Uprising AR Idol Cards {Joystiq}

Mar 25th 2012 4:15AM Eggplant in garlic sauce from Hot Wok Cafe in my home town.

Add some hot and sour soup, and you've got yourself an afternoon, buster.

Diablo III shelves PvP to make launch {Massively}

Mar 10th 2012 5:08AM I came here expecting to see manbabies crying about this despite the fact that they've also been constantly bitching about a release date since the beta program went public.

Not leaving satisfied, but somewhat vindicated.

Replica Portal gun coming from NECA in late spring/early summer {Joystiq}

Feb 23rd 2012 7:58PM I will own one, as well as one of every TF2 Action Figure.

Do Japanese RPGs need good stories? {Joystiq}

Feb 16th 2012 2:00PM There are occasions where a JRPG doesn't need a fantastic story. You've pointed out Etrian Odyssey, which is a fantastic game that is light on story.

There are occasions where a JRPG absolutely MUST have a fantastic story. In the case of FFXIII, the developers were claiming that the reason that the game is effectively a hallway simulator with random battles is that it is hard to tell a good story in a non-linear game. Which is complete bullshit for a couple of reasons. The first being that Square itself has done it on numerous occasions before Final Fantasy XIII. The second being that the story in Final Fantasy XIII is trite and wholly uninteresting.

Bottom line: If you know the story is going to be the main reason people are playing your game, you should really, really try to make sure that it isn't a complete let down. And if the story does happen to be batshit stupid, try not to call attention to the fact that the gameplay suffered in order to make the moronic story the focus of your "masterpiece".

Square Enix thanks games for 2011's rise in revenue, profit {Joystiq}

Feb 4th 2012 1:48PM Wait a minute, wait a minute, let me get this straight...

If Square Enix releases GAMES, they make MONEY? Whatever happened to their strategy of releasing old screenshots and being coy with release dates, all the while bitching about how the games market is in the shitter?

(Seriously, Wada is an idiot and they should have lever let Sakaguchi leave the building.)

Star Wars: The Old Republic highlights upcoming Kaon Under Siege flashpoint {Massively}

The same patch that's bringing this dungeon is enabling AA.

High res textures will be coming soon from what I understand. Like 1.2 soon.

Super Mario 3D Land review: Depths worth plumbing {Joystiq}

Nintendo of Europe is on the ball lately.

I wonder what Nintendo of America's excuse is.

The Joystiq Indie Pitch: Love+ {Joystiq}

Oct 29th 2011 1:55PM @Kougeru

If Konami had plans to market its game outside of Japan, I could see there being a problem. However, one game is an indie platformer that (with all due respect) probably won't receive widespread recognition. The other is a game in a genre that, outside of Japan, is about as niche as they come and will likely never be considered for release in western territories. In this case, I doubt that any sort of dispute would be very likely or even result in any sort of gain for Konami.

The Joystiq Indie Pitch: Love+ {Joystiq}

Oct 29th 2011 10:55AM But LovePlus is also the name of a popular Japanese dating simulator. I am very confused. This game does not look moe.

Buy the Diablo 3 collector's edition, add four months to the WoW annual pass free {Joystiq}

Oct 23rd 2011 2:14AM @drumwiz86 This. Exactly.

This is so that people who have agreed to the annual pass are not dissuaded from buying the Diablo 3 collector's edition if they were already inclined to do so.
