Re: “Got $10? Got A PS3? There's Something You Need To Buy, Like, Now

@ c.o.: I agree, though the later Suikoden games started falling off a bit in terms of quality. As is, I've got the first two games on PS3 hard drive.

Re: “Got $10? Got A PS3? There's Something You Need To Buy, Like, Now

@cat & beard: Granted, it does include anime cliches, but given that it's a roleplaying game set in a Japanese high school, would you really expect different?

And there's an entire Megami Tensei purist argument on the quality of the most recent Persona titles (and, for that matter, of the Shin Megami Tensei games as a whole), but that doesn't detract from the fact that, objectively speaking, Persona 3 is fantastic.

@dfsa987: Well, yeah. Why would I want to promote the work of others? I write for a living. Obviously I'm a narcissist.

But if you don't want to take my word for it, here's a stupid-huge selection of my colleagues who feel the same way: http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation…

Re: “Get Fallout Free For 48 Hours

Oh I know, but I had a bastard of a time trying to find a clear, useful image of the original. For the vast majority of the audience that picture will be good enough, but yes, my geeky inner-self is kinda cringing at it too.

Re: “Axl Rose and Lana Del Rey Rumored to Be Dating

Wait, I thought she was supposedly dating Marilyn Manson? It's like she's crossing off names on a list that she wrote at age 10.

I still miss Chris Eccleston.

Re: “Review: Street Fighter X Tekken

Ah yeah, the sexism of the fighting game community.

I'll grant that it's appalling, but it's not so much a problem with SFxT so much as its an issue with the competitive system and players surrounding the genre that just happened to pop up immediately prior to the release of this game.

Throwing it into this review would have been a pretty flimsy tangent.

Re: “Review: Street Fighter X Tekken

@ Graham: You lost me. There's a story bigger than the online issues or the hyped-but-overall-infuriating gem system? Or are you talking about the DLC characters being mostly present on-disc already? Yes, that's a thing, but it doesn't much bother me (and is arguably de rigueur for big DLC stuff these days, whether the internet likes it or not).

@ Rev: Which is only made better by the comments the two characters throw back and forth. Russian bear wrestler wrestles bear, then they argue back and forth. It's glorious.
