    Fragile looks like something a 14 year old weeaboo would beat off to.

    The play mechanic looks kind of interesting, but the art style is a huge turn-off to me. It looks like generic "anime" art to me, along with ambiguously-aged sort of loli-looking, skanky dressing magical girls.

    hmmm, well I watch a fair bit of anime in my spare time (no, i'm not a weeaboo. I fuckin hate weeaboos with an unholy passion), and I'd say that fragile character designs are a fair shake away from being "generic anime." It's an anime based art style for sure, but that's little reason to hate on it. If anime aint your thing, well that's your prerogative, but don't let your dislike deign ignorance.

    I'd probably say that something like tales of symphonia or any harvest moon game has much more generic character designs than something like fragile. There does seem to be some odd fixation though by the japanese with the 14-16 age range.

    Youth obsession is a problem with large swathes of japanese culture, I believe, not just cartoon artstyles.

    So, I recently bought Baroque and am having an alright time. The story is just bizarre though, so mostly I'm just doing it for the old grind. Not too horrible for $20. I also got BWii (fun while it lasts) and RE4:Wii (already own it on GC but hey I love it and play it constantly so I figured I may as well do it right).

    I'm thinking of picking up Dokapon: Kingdom but I'm not too sure since I don't always have people around to play it. I'll probably get it anyway.

    That's actually entirely on purpose. The lead designer purposely created a world tat was unique so that he can have whatever the fuck happen and have no one bat an eye. Of course, he may have went too far...

    I loved the style and concept of Sin and Punishment but the classic/gamecube controls turned me right off. I was just begging to use an N64 pad, or even better, a Wiimote to control the game.

    In fact, Starfox 64 with the classic controller was like that too. Say what you will about the N64 pad, but it was built perfectly for certain games.

    bumped for muramasa gameplay

    and a bunch of new fragile footage

    the fragile footage, while short and semi pointless, do show off the isolated feel of the game pretty well. The first clip is a new trailer with some new/old footage. The game really is gorgeous.

    Looking at some new pics of dead rising, it really does just look like a lower res version of the original. I never though the 360 game looked all that impressive in terms of textures and lighting, it just looked really clean with a solid engine that could output hordes of zombies.

    there are more monster hunter tri screens as well, but they're tiny.

    I really love the lighting in Monster Hunter tri. It looks nicer every time we get new shots. It's got a bloomed, realistic look, but is also bright and colorful with fuckawesome shadows.

    Rathian is still obviously Hell on two legs. Also appears the scorpion monster type from MH Frontier is in, with that shot of an insanely long stinger.

    Also, I had no basis for comparison last time, but since I've now played MH2 online extensively, the crazy huge online city with dirigibles for tri seems like an appropriate escalation of grandeur and coolness from MH2's toweringly awesome Dondruma.

    I got Baroque also. Weird, weird game, but something about it is addictive.

    The gameplay did require getting used to, and I like new experiences.

    Yes.

    I played it with my girlfriend with two bots and she loved it. She then went on to beat it in her own single player game. That aside, it's great fun multiplayer.
