Title: Jiggle Physics
Posted: March 25, 2009 (12:19 AM)
this shouldn't surprise me at all.. that Kojima delves into a little perversion in most of his games but this...i was least expecting jiggle physics any at all in Policenauts! of all games, why Policenauts?! you'll meet various girls throughout the game and you have the opportunity to do THAT to them. yes. THAT. click. bounce.
now i wonder what is the first game to apply anatomical jiggle physics. Super Macho Man's muscular man boobies in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out was the first game i can remember with jiggle physics, though you never got to interact with them but who would want to... Doki Doki Majo Shinpan was the first game i've played where i got to interact with jiggling boobs...but obviously now i know it isn't the first game to do so. Policenauts precedes Doki by 12 years. i haven't played enough hentai games to know if they were the ones who truly pioneered interactive jiggle physics...though the possibility that this started in the early 90's seems most likely.
Policenauts is definitely
THE MOST PERVERTED HENTAI KOJIMA GAME OF ALL TIME
Title: games purchased this year so far....

DJ Max Fever - PSP $39.99
Legacy of Y's - DS $34.99
Street Fighter IV - PS3 $59.99
Deadly Creatures - WII $49.99
MadWorld - WII $49.99
Silent Hill 2 - PS2 used $14.99(the buy 2 get 1 free deal)
Mana Khemia 1 - PS2 used $17.99(that was going on at...)
Luminous Arc - DS used $19.99(GameStop this weekend..)
Ocarina of Time Collector's Edition - N64(from ebay. the game found it's way back into my collection again $40)
Policenauts - 3D0 (from ebay in good condition $19, probably the only 3D0 game i will ever buy!)
Legend of Zelda 1 - FAMICOM DISK SYSTEM (brand new unopened $30)
Metroid - FAMICOM DISK SYSTEM (brand new unopened $26)
Snatcher - PC ENGINE (ebay for $35 complete, should be coming in soon)
wish i had a pc engine, famicom disk or 3DO to play it on, but the Japanese packaging is interesting enough to hold my interest as is, especially the famicom disk games. i don't know if japanese games these days still provide sticker sheets but i thought it was neat to find them inside the instruction manual of the famicom disk games. the instruction manual is like a mini-booklet that has that rough paper quality and not like the flimsy and easily bent NES booklets. lastly the yellow hard floppy disk with big plain obtrusive NINTENDO etched at the bottom of the disk to me is an oddity. why can't americans get meticulous packaging like the japanese...and why do the majority of american gamers treat their games like shit?
anyway what games have YOU bought this year?
Title: what's a good website for retro import games?
Posted: March 14, 2009 (09:55 PM)
besides ebay... i found one that was kind of interesting called www.jap-sai.com, anyone tried out their services before? contains some pretty neat info and little history on certain games in collector guide-like fashion: original release date, packaging info, the going-price, rarity if noted, but the only downside is getting these games aren't cheap and the shipping rate is ridiculous for a first time buyer of the site, but supposedly you get shipping discounts once you become a member. alot of the games i like seem to average around the 30 to 60 dollar range and of course those rare import games can go up for 1 or 2 benjamins...like they listed pc engine rondo of blood for $160. anyways, any other good sites out there?
Title: who do you support?
Posted: February 27, 2009 (06:31 PM)
big gaming companies with their big budget money making franchises and small ideas or small-time companies with small budgets and big ideas? the fat cats who are cash-strapped and already famous or the starving artist who is penniless and looking for their big break?
i think more people should help support smaller game developers/studios... at least support them enough for them to continue to function and not be shuttered out like Ensemble Studios, but Ensemble were fairly high-profile, but small nevertheless.
i was looking up sales numbers for games i recently bought on vgchartz. the numbers are estimates more or less but couldn't be further from the truth...DJ Max Fever has only sold about 7,000 copies so far in a month. i've been a big fan of this series for awhile and i'd have to say these numbers are disappointing. makes me wonder if this is the only game PM Studios will ever publish. Deadly Creatures from Rainbow Studios only has sold 4,000 copies. it's a shame. the concept is novel and the production values are decent. it's a departure from all their MX ATV motocross games and *gasp* Disney's Cars games which i'm not a fan of. makes me wonder how much more successful it would be if THQ put this on 360 or PS3. both of those games i mentioned are not perfect by any means(some bugs, glitches etc.) but they are exceptional games that do something different than the norm. i've also noticed my buying habits have changed quite a bit this year because i would never be hesitant to buy Resident Evil 5 or Killzone 2 or name your blockbuster game on day one last year, but i don't know--times have changed. i've been let down by those hyped games last like Assassins Creed,GTAIV, Metal Gear Solid 4, Resistance 2 etc. and thus have lost some interest in those games but... what i am excited for is Devil Summoner 2!! and no more paying $10-20 extra for collector's edition unless it's free like Atlus always seems to do with their games! i've bought Legacy of Y's...but the reviews have generally been less favorable. if you never played Y's Complete or Eternal on import, this isn't too bad an alternative though.
Title: yakuza 3 demo is going live on the japanese PSN...
Posted: February 18, 2009 (09:45 AM)
as mentioned on Kotaku. anyone going to download this? it lookin' pretty good. in other news, i'm suddenly wanting Street Fighter IV, but i don't feel like spending money on it...shhhit. i was thinking about trading in some of my games from my collection to Lamestop, but it's tough....i was thinking of a fighting game that i don't care about anymore. between virtua fighter 5 and soul calibur IV on my PS3, i'm leaning more towards trading in SCIV...but i'll probably get shitty credit for it, probably less than $15...but i might consider it for $20...also thinking about getting rid of Stranglehold: Collector's Edition. i don't care if Midway Games shuts down. they make pretty shitty games nowadays except from the early 80's and some from the early 90's, which is why they are where they are right now.
Title: the recession couldn't havve come at a worse time...
Posted: February 13, 2009 (10:15 AM)
because there are a tons of games i want to buy yet not enough cash. 2008 was disappointing, so why would 2009 be any different? being cynical hasn't done me any good recently, not that i shouldn't be a little bit. for all i know 2009 might just end up being the best year ever for these new systems and for some reason i'm excited nonetheless about the upcoming games. besides most of the RPGs i listed on my previous post i want, i also want this year...
House of the Dead Overkill
Sin and Punishment 2
that one game from the creators of Odin Sphere, forgot the title.
Street Fighter IV
Resident Evil 5
Killzone 2(kind of)
DS & PSP
bunch of RPGs
xbox360...if i had one
Star Ocean 4
Dead Rising 2
Title: is this the year of the RPGs?
Posted: February 12, 2009 (12:06 AM)
not only are we getting alot of remakes, but more sequels and perhaps some originals. is this a great time to be an RPG fan or what? for instance...
the PS2 has:
Ar Tonelico 2 this year and the upcoming SMT: Devil Summoner 2 and Mana Khemia 2
Tales of The World 2
Star Ocean second evolution
Dragon Quest 9
Dragon Quest 5 & 6
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
Valkyrie Profile 3
Legacy of Y's 1 & 2
Shin Megami Tensei DS
Nights In The Nightmare and whatever else Atlus is bringing over
Arc Rise Fantasia
Star Ocean 4, White Knight Chronicles, Last Remnant rounding out on the other nextgen systems. that's about 20 games i've mentioned and i'm sure there will be twice as many released by the end of the year...phew
Title: am i one of the few who is excited for this?
Posted: February 10, 2009 (06:28 PM)
you can have your RE5 tote bag or your SFIV headband, but i want my raiho doll! and what is better? it cost....nothing! i am also excited for the new Shin Megami Tensei game on the DS, and am also consider getting The Legacy of Y's I & II remake on DS now instead of later for the free packed-in soundtrack CD. ohhh, Atlus you treat and spoil your fans so good.....
Title: If you have a PSP and are a fan of rhythm games....
Posted: February 07, 2009 (11:12 PM)
OUT NOW! if the chick on the cover can't convince you to play this game i don't know what will. yeah i finally bought my copy if only to show support for the series in America even though i'm already familiar with the game and songs..so it might not be as exciting to me as say...someone who has never played it before. perhaps i should start writing a review for it. been contemplating it for sometime. i had thought about reviewing the import versions but it would probably make more sense to start with the localised version, then delve into the import ones. anyways, i think the print run of this game is probably going to be low...maybe around 100,000 copies so if you're curious i suggest you check it before it's gone!
Title: what does your game collection look like?
