    I think I'm getting a vita for Christmas

    What are games to get

    I've got gravity rush and soul sacrifice off plus and I know P4G and Tearaway

    What else

    PSP games are fair game too since I never had one of those

    I'm gonna be getting some old final fantasies for it like 9 soon

    Apparently there was a Lunar 1 port for PSP and it's pretty good?

    I just found this out like two days ago

    I got all excited to play Valkyria Chronicles when I got my Vita

    For some reason it was in my head that that was a PSP game

    Handheld etiquette question

    Who here is like me and never actually turns them off

    I just put them in sleep mode and put them on the charger

    I'm sure I'm ruining the battery life but then again I played through all of Link Between Worlds without ever having to relaunch it

    I'm pretty sure nosebleeds are a indicator of being aroused in Japan?

    So...yeah, probably.

    Yeah, Silver Star Harmony is pretty great. Basically takes all the good things from the GBA remake and puts them into the PS1 version. They also scrubbed all the weird pop-culture references from the Working Designs translation.

    That is good to hear!

    I never played 1 but loved Lunar 2

    But I really hated that my fantasy RPG had fucking Who Wants to Be a Millionaire references in it

    I need to replay 2 one of these days. Easily in my top 10 games ever. Unfortunately, the only way to play 2 is to get the actual PS1 discs, and their really expensive.

    Keep hoping for a remake/port but it's apparently caught up in copyright hell so it's doubtful that will ever happen.

    Speed, you might want to look into Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together for the PSP - easily one of my favourite games ever. Guacamelee is a great little Metroidvania/platformer for the Vita, though I think it's out on other platforms now.

    How is DayZ still the top selling game on Steam. It's in the middle of a Steam Sale and it's not discounted but it's been number one the whole time.

    Just assume that every thing in FLCL doesn't have a deeper meaning.

    Because while there totally is stuff with a deeper meaning, it's also totally implying whatever innuendo you're thinking about.

    Everyday we stray further from God's light

    FLCL is a story about puberty

    as such just about everything is a metaphor for dicks or vaginas or masturbation or sex

    look at the very first episode

    naota has a hard, fleshy protrusion coming out of him that he's embarrassed about and tries to hide from the other kids at school

    it's not exactly subtle.

  • Options
    Vann DirasVann Diras Registered User regular
    Yeah the innuendo is absolutely a part of the metaphor flcl is creating

    It's an important part of the puzzle
    as is naota's reaction to most of it, which is disgust

    Like his dad is a creepy perv, and naota treats him with disdain the entire show for it

    Along with all the... Other stuff that goes on with his dad

    and all of the monsters and head-lumps are super phallic until ninamori gets one when it suddenly switches over to being a giant vagina monster instead of a giant penis monster

    So if you close and then restart the Mac version of Stanley Parable you can't move your head. This seems like a pretty big problem in that game.

    The standalone version came out recently and people have been waiting for it for a while

    i think it's more of a like maturity thing?

    Like guitars are metaphors for dicks but dicks are metaphors for "adultness?"

    FLCL basically operates on a minimum of three levels

    on one level, it's a story about a boy trying to cope with growing up and all the phallic imagery is symbolic of that

    on another level, there's some crazy sci-fi shit actually going down with aliens and robots and our hero is caught in the middle of it all

    on a third level, it's an over-the-top affectionate parody of some of the goofier cliches of the medium

    in addition to all that, you have several character's side stories: Ninamori dealing with her parents' troubled relationship, Mamimi dealing with... all her fucked up shit, Naota's dad dealing with the fact that he's kind of a failure, etc.

    On a fourth level, you have to fight Frankenstein and then a bird attacks you and if yo-what?
