For those of you who have not kept up with the fighting genre, you would be forgiven for having no clue what Blazblue is. It was created by Arc System of the famed Guilty Gear series and released last month for PS3 and 360. It has gotten nearly all positive reviews and I have yet to come across a bad one and after playing it about a week I can see why. So this is my overview/review of it.

What the heck is this crap?

What the heck is this crap?

So my friend laharl was kind enough to send a message my way that he’s discovered a software developer in Japan called minori, that has banned foreign ISPs from stealing the dirty images off their site. If you didn’t know, the Japanese version of Congress –something called diet pepsi– is going over or has already passed some new legislations that ban adult games from having any of the following: loli, schoolgirls, orgies, tentacles, guro, rape, beastiality, incest and everything else you’ve masturbated to for the past ten years. If you’re one of the few people that can still access that page without the use of proxies, then by all means feel free to go ahead and browse through their lineup of… well they don’t really have anything do they?

Let’s be honest here, who are they trying to fool? If you ask me, I think it’s a publicity stunt. Their games, as far as I remember, are below mediocre and spend quite a bit of time around an area called boring as shit. I see no other reason for them to block foreigners from seeing the terribly offensive school girl outfits and other generic gimmicks that make up the majority of their shitty titles. So of course, are they really in a position to be attempting this? Yes. If there is an ulterior motive behind it, something I like to consider jumping on the political bandwagon. I notice search queries for minori games on certain p2p’s are going up, and if internet averages are a microcosm of the world then this whole stunt may be proving beneficial for these guys.

Anyways, it seems minori isn’t the only one to try this… But why does it seem like only people that have developed really boring games like Wind ~a breath of heart~ are the ones who have the audacity to say, “go away foreigners”? I mean as far as I know, most of the software developers whose games I actually enjoy still have their traffic open for raping by foreign devils; and as far as I give a shit, this suits me just fine.

In more important news, Ed McMahone, Michael Jackson, and Farrah Fawcett all died today. It is also coincidently my sister’s birthday. So without further ado, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SIS!

I recently got banned from a forum I was trolling. I won’t name which one, but if you were reading scanlation back in 2001, then you’ve probably heard of them. This was the goal from the start, of course, but I nearly ran 300+ posts on the forum before they got around to doing so. And now seeing the message that I’ve been punted to the winds fills me with this deep emptiness unlike any broken vinyl or Bob Marley album. more…

I’ve heard about this game before while browsing certain crevices on the internet and never really understood or took the time to learn about this game. Yes this is another Visual Novel write up much like my old Clannad one. However unlike clannad, the whole story is pretty devoid of any humor and fun to make way of a pretty dark theme along with a few adult scenes. If you are disturbed eaisly then this isn’t the review or even game for you as there are some images within that may be creepy to younger viewers. I’ll give you a moment to see if you really want to read on or not…

Capped this from the newly arrived DJ Max Trilogy game I ordered…

I don’t think I have to say much more. Oh and this game rocks. Get it.

Like the mythbusters say, if it’s worth doing it’s worth overdoing. You would think that after 4 game releases in the Dj Max series that developers Pentavision would be running out of steam when it comes to their special editions. Well this was just released for pre-order (which I swiftly placed mine) today and judging from the looks of things they aren’t 1 bit. Every western game developer should take note that this is how special editions are done.
