Man, I’ve been through all 5 stages with this PSO2 situation. From the onset of it’s delay:

1: Denial.

Pff, it’s probably nothing! We all know Sega’s kinda retarded these days, they probably forgot that this is the season for the release date, yah know? Hahah! We’ll get it soon enough! ….. any time now.

2: Anger

Come on Sega what the FUUUCK! SHIT! I’ve been waiting for a sequel to this bitch for eons! EONS BITCH!! COME… THE FUCK…. ON ALREADY!!! STUPID… FUCKING… COMPANY… STUPID… FUCKING… RACIST ASSHATS!! I WANNA BITE SOMEONE IN THE FACE!! I’m gonna tea bag the SHIT out of Haijime’s pedo mustache, piece of shit billionare with his piece of shit Pachinko business! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!

3: Bargaining.

Sega… if I have to… I swear I’ll buy the Pii U and totally gonna buy both versions of Lost Mind… and.. and maybe I’ll throw in Aliens: Colonal Marines! Yeah! And I swear to never make fun of the people that cried over not getting Fatal Frame for the Wii. I understand now the pain of not getting a game localized. Hehe, yeah, that’s… that’s all you wanted to show me… right? Right!?

4: Depression

OH AMMA WHYYYYYYYYYYY! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAH!!! I JUST WANT PSO2 WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

5: Acceptance

…….You know what? I don’t even need PSO2. I already have 3 Phantasy Star games, all of which happen to be total grind fests, and I’m still dealing with Presequel which is an even bigger grind fest, I’m… I’m cool with it. You know, those Asian territories probably need it more than I do, what with all them typhoons tearin they asses up, something that… eases the pain is what the doctor ordered! Besides, everyone’s talking all this good shit about Destiny being like… like some westernized version of PSO2 without all the retarded Japanese waifu simulator business going around…. yeah! Space Explorer cock fest! HERE I COME!

…….Yeah, I’m desperate. Since Gearbox is turning Presequel to shit, I’m hearing all this stuff about how Bungie is actually IMPROVING their game instead of taking a massive dump on it like Punkford and his crew. Initially I ignored the game due to how samey it looks to other space marine shooters (and that 20 gig space requirement gooooooooooddamn!) along with how it’s a victim of overhype (IE everyone hates it despite pumping it up like it was gonna be bigger than it is) idk. But there’s literally no chance of PSO2 coming stateside…. and I kinda need my Space Explorer fix. Not Space Marine fix, there is a difference.

……Is…..Destiny…..worth… a damn? And why 20 mother fucking gigs?

Happy Holidays bitches. Got some clippers  cause apparently I’m a hairy bastard. Whatever.

Checkin out Sly Cooper…. not bad so far but that turtle is reminding me of Navi all over again, but fuck all that noise.

Capcom has proven to be very stupid these days.

You know that tidbit about gamers being in the 30s? You know, that average that has been that way since…. forever maybe? Yeah, Capcom thinks that’s a problem. See, in their minds, people in their 30s and 40s have a tendency to outgrow gaming. I mean, how can they not? What with all the responsibility of parenting and paying bills taking priority over junk entertainment, yadda yadda. But most adults have the capacity to make free time and not get caught up in stressful situations. But w/e, Capcom says it’s much more strategic to cater to a younger audience as they don’t run the risk of having their audiences leave their games. Since old people have better things to do like die off, which is what all these japs seem to want (especially Nintendo). Problem is they’re talking about a franchise that fucking caters to adults.

Yeah, uh… RESIDENT EVIL is pretty much made for the 30 crowd considering the content involved. A survival horror series mostly about puzzles and getting out of situations, mostly slow paced up until the shitty COD wannabe TPS’s.

Capcom and Japanese developers constantly infuriate and frustrate ALL their audiences because they constantly fall into the “get em while they’re young” clause. Which isn’t a bad theory as the Japanese worship youth as if when you get passed the age of 27, you’re no longer a desirable person. Hell, every anime they have features a teenager with super powers and a bunch of highschool girls with hormone charged titties. The Japanese are horrid people when it comes to age, instantly assuming that going beyond the highschool limit makes you a skidmark on their shoes. Sega tried this bullshit with Sonic, and failed. Capcom isn’t really in a position to pull this shit considering their financial situation.

The entertainment industries of the world are all considering the youth as their saviors of profit considering the economic environment is not in their favor. Since young people are inherently stupid and lack self control, they are the best targets for squeezing cheese from. IE you make content that chases away older audiences and have shills run around talking about “times have changed” and that “this shit was always for younger audiences” while reeling in the stupid youth. Expect RE7 to have Hello Kitty costumes.

How does Capcom plan to do this? By using fashion magazines that appeal to young people. Oh Amma, the WORST audience you could cater to are teenagers/College Students. Teenagers have the absolute worst taste in anything, especially celebrities and music (dubstep is shit, and you know it). So what’s probably going to happen is that Resident Evil will cease to have adult content and probably have something similar to Highschool of the Dead.

If Slit skirt Chinese bitch, Tribal Bikini Black chick, Blond Jill and Hospital cleavage Sherry weren’t clues already…

Hell, SFxT was already a clue that Capcom is going after Teenagers, especially with Poison in mind.

Resident Evil was already dead at #5, and was raped in 6. Looking at that fashion magazine remark, I fucking DREAD what they’ll do in 7. Resident Evil is a series that generally appeals to the 30 year old crowd. It’s not M-rated for no reason. Why not find some sort of middle ground so that resident evil appeals to a wider demographic? I mean… you know… it worked well before. The true test of how good a game is… is how much you enjoy it no matter how old you get. A good reason for why adults grow out of gaming is because developers keep going after younger people like a bad habit. So painting Resident Evil for young(er) people is definitely going to chase the older ones away. Not that Resident Evil had any longevity anyway, all of those games are throw aways with no real replay value. When you experience a Resident Evil title for the first time, the second playthrough is not special because you know the flow of the game. The last time Resident Evil had any replay value was with number 2 having all those alternate playthroughs and routes you could explore. But beyond that, there ain’t much to it.

But “hey, if that’s the case, the TEENAGERS will be stupid enough to buy them anyway!”. You can blame it on Capcom’s financial situation, that which can be blamed on Capcom’s bad business practices of catering to stupid teenagers. Capcom is so unbelievably stupid. First, the DLC practices that got them in this jam, and they think the only way out is through more DLC. As well, catering tto teens chased away their audiences and they think catering to teens again will ARRRRRRGH! The mark of stupidity of trying the same thing over and expecting a different result. And unfortunately, Capcom is not interested in anyone’s concerns on the matter, they’re desperate for money but they don’t know how they’re going to get out.

Other than that, they’re trying to appeal to non-gamers by using movie studios and a “Resident Evil cafe” in Shibuya town. Uh… right. How do you appeal to non-gamers using a HARDCORE gaming franchise!? I’ve not seen video game sales rise with movie tickets, the best selling games have usually been original game titles and non-movie/tv show  related material (unless it’s fucking Disney), but a Cafe!? People might just like the food and atmosphere, but I doubt anyone is going to pay out the ass to get that same experience on a console. Cheap food>>>>>>Expensive games. The REVERSE would happen, the gamers would be drown to the cafe because they’re familiar with the material and they’re EXISTING fans. If you want to cater to non-gamers, you don’t use existing franchises. You have to really introduce them to games that have any franchise history or potentially reboot the franchise. Wii Sports is a good example of introducing non-gamers to video games (I think). But you didn’t see Nintendo Land doing anything, did you? Introducing non-gamers to a gaming franchise by using non-game related promotions is counter-productive considering the expenses of video games and the financial burdens of the WORLD at large. You’re dealing with people who have priorities to keep in check. I bet the Capcom CEO couldn’t pass a bloodtest, he’s so dumb.

In other news, Sega released PSO2 to South Asian territories…. in English.

You can just tell Siliconera thought that was bullshit. It’s right in their title. I had been anticipating this game since it’s announcement, and have been feverishly raging on the inside. Sega announces and then cancels the western release, while giving Asian territories an ENGLISH…. FUCKING…. VERSION! WRAP YOUR BIG ASS HEAD AROUND DAT SHIT!

We CAN’T have our own version in a language we understand, but the FUCKING ASIANS can!

I… shit man! I don’t have the piss to waste, EVERYONE knows that’s bullshit. How much you wanna bet some bureaucratic asshole gamers will blame the folks who got a Japanese account to play the game overseas even when it was declared to be A-OK!?

Neo Sega’s anti-western practices are out of control. They’re already targeting youtubers once again, they’re antagonizing their Sonic fans with Nintendo content (or that’s Nintendo themselves), the mobile game with integrated servers but Japanese audiences getting the overpowered extras that allow them to beat everyone in non-japanese territories (I think it was Kingdom Conquest or something?), and I can tell you this english version being exclusive to Asia is a “Fuck you” to western audiences for getting Japanese accounts (banned as well ofcourse). Sega is literally going out of their way to piss off their western fanbases on every level. Hands down, this company isn’t focused on business, they are focused on a declaration of Japanese supremacy against everyone else. They are deliberately antagonizing western audiences AND PARTNERS. And this is unacceptable on all accounts. Where Sega got this new chip on their shoulder from, I have no idea, but they have the nerve to continue making shoddy games for the west while they give the Japs their best shit ever, what is the goal? It is immature and they should not be allowed to run any business. If you WANT money, and you’re working in 3 different territories, then you deliver EQUAL FUCKING TREATMENT to these territories. Sony does this, Capcom…. used to do this, Namco does, Konami FUCKING does it well, and even SNK to some extent has done this.

Sega, you are not special. You either serve ALL of your audiences equally, or don’t serve anyone at all. If all you’re gonna do is show us your asshole and tell everyone to lick it, we’ll prefer to RYNO instead.

Imagine that girl is Alis Landale from Phantasy Star, and then you’ll see why I am shitting myself now.

I am not bullshitting you. I WILL fucking quit gaming if this shit happens.

Skip to the 14:30 mark of the video. I am ashamed of the fact that one of our own is hyped for the possibility of this happening.

I’ve already covered why I currently despise Nintendo. They’ve pissed me off beyond belief. To the point that I bought a PSP. Nintendo are doing everything they can to alienate me from their games.

Sega is on a slippery slope to financial ruin. Sammy will rape everything known as “money” in the name of their shitty pachinko business. They’re finished. Sega is damn near ready to separate.

But if Nintendo… is actually considering buying Sega, that is it.

That’s Nintendo’s Alien ship ready to rape Sega of the last of it’s coolness.

Tell me guys. What’s worse to you?

Exhibit A

Shadow the Hedgehog in full gangsta mode

…Or this?

Exhibit B

Samus Aran in full submission mode

I want to count the number of lies from people who would dare suggest they would prefer exhibit B just because of “arse and T”. I fear only they need not be lies.

This… THIS is what I fear. Nintendo has RAPED, not destroyed, RAPED the ever loving FUCK out of their most enduring characters. Their top 3 franchises thus far have been ruined. Mario with a water gun and a commercial that would cause an abortion alone, Link with so many errands to run, the entire game feels like a side quest, and Samus with an extreme hormonal imbalance the likes of which we never DARED to desire! Pokemon is honestly all they have left.

But people are literally cheering for this. Sonic fans orgasm at the thought of Sega being bought out by Nintendo as they foolishly believe they will “save sonic”. They’re on the brink of insanity. I will sit back… and weep.

What did Sega do that was so detrimental to Sonic’s fame?

1. They gave his anti-hero a gun

2. They rushed  severly hyped Sonic game without proper play-testing

3. Turned him into a werehog

4. Gave him a sword.

That is 4 things people scream is what killed the franchise.

What did Nintendo do to their core franchises?

1. Gave Mario a water gun.

2. Gave his brother a vacuum cleaner

3. Turned Link into a midget cartoon character.

4. Put link and Zelda on trains because Aonuma’s son likes trains.

5. Caused Zelda to go into the Bomba Bin (!!!!!!)

6. DESTROYED the Star Fox series.

7. Put out an instructional DVD (a whole disc) with the release of Super Mario Galaxy 2, insulting the intelligence of the common gamer.

8. Gave Link an annoying partner that deliberately insults your intelligence for the entire game.

This bitch deserves more hate than Tingle. I can’t believe I just said that.

9. DESTROYED the Metroid franchise with just 1 game. It took at least 2 for Sonic to be “ruined”. Not destroyed.

10. Created 2 systems that cause headaches and irritation.

11. Restricted memory data to memory cards in fear of losing profits.

12. Thought this game was a good idea.

Who’s Tingle? Only the most HATED CHARACTER IN THE ZELDA FRANCHISE!

For all the shit Sega gets, I would rather they continue on their path (hell, I’d rather they go completely BANKRUPT!) than to submit to a company that literally destroys their franchises. Houses developers who deliberately insult the fans they’re hired to serve and entertain. Constantly puts out hardware features and expecting us NOT to use them. Restricting how we play games, etc. Nintendo is a company that offers you no freedom in how you play your games. They are arrogant to the point that they will DESTROY their games to ensure you play a certain way.

How? Enter Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The only game in the Smash Series that sucks. Why? They decided to remove an exploit in the air dash system that would allow players to do wave dashes. But that’s not it. They changed the entire physics system to ensure that there are no abuses to the engine for ‘advanced” exploits to be used by the hardcore dipshits over at Smash Boards. The result? Brawl being damned unplayable. It’s slow, unbalanced, not as fun or as chaotic as the previous 2 games, loads like ass, and nearly broke everyone’s Wii console due to it’s dual layer system. Fanboys were so desperate that they began hacking the game to make it play more like Melee. And you know what? It’s actually fun! And they’ve managed to turn Brawl into the Wii equivalent of the M.U.G.E.N. engine found on PC.

How ironic. The very people that were despised by the most “casual” of players have now become heroes in making games better than ever. Of course, your mileage may vary.

But the point is Sakurai destroyed Smash Bros. over an exploit found in Melee. An EXPLOIT! But more so, because he didn’t enjoy the tournament players having their fun. In Volume 3 of an Iwata Asks: Brawl reveals Sakurai’s personal thoughts of tournament players.

When people think of playing Smash Bros. online, they think about battling opponents to see what happens based on their record of wins or losses, or about holding tournaments online. But I felt that this would make it a service from which only a select group of players [tourneyfags] could derive enjoyment. For Smash Bros., there are small communities here and there where there’s fun in winning and losing, even when there are more skilled players than others. But if you make an environment where everyone is trying to climb their way to the top of a single tall mountain, it’s clear that the people having fun would be limited to a small number of individuals.

So he fucked up Brawl to ensure only a smaller group of people enjoy it.

This is what Nintendo does. They make their games exclusionary to only  a preferred selection of audiences. Everyone else can get fucked. They also demand that you play their games a certain way. In NSMBW, you can only play with Wii mote and/or nun-chuck. No Classic Controller/Gamecube Controller/Hori Stick (for NES Advantage memories) available. Why? Because certain actions like lifting objects or other players… or flying… require the shaking of the controller. Because it’s too much work to configure that to another button or making flying UP+Jump to give that old school feel. Same shit in Kirby Return to the Dreamland, though to a much lesser effect. It’s not really IMPOSED on you.

Sega games? On the Wii, the majority of them I could use any controller I damn well pleased. The few that don’t are rail shooters, Secret Rings, or Mad World.

Not to mention the only Sega game I’ve sold on Wii was Zero Gravity. I’ve sold at least 5 Nintendo brand games alone. Make that six when I get those damn Amazon stickers off of Mario Power Tennis. I haven’t been this dissappointed with so many Nintendo games since the gameboy advance, and that had the worst onslaught of titles ever. Even Pokemon sucked!

And what could we expect out of Nintendo produced Sega games anyway?

Ironically, this was actually Sega’s idea as they bought the license to make olympic games (Sega has a hard on for sports titles considering the success they had with them back on the Genesis…. like that means shit now with EA) and suggested they do this with Nintendo. But ignoring that, this game is a fucking disgrace. First off, the Olympics are shitty events where the world comes together to entertain the head bitch in charge. The Queen of England. She must’ve been pissed that a black man won the gold medal for track and field, but that’s aside the point. People imagined Mario and Sonic they it happened in Brawl. Brawl is shit, so that match up is still imperfect.

And I doubt we’ll ever get that perfect cross over if this happens.

I think I speak for everyone when I say I would prefer this

Nintendo believes in some horse shit philosophy of “surprising” gamers with stupid gimmicks because they think being “different” is the essence of quality. Doing the unthinkable would garner them nothing but support and admiration. But every time, the same results occur. People start losing faith in them because all they become is a parody of themselves.

Sega still has people talking, debating on the internet, and not debates where they have to defend a game from harsh criticisms like “padding out the game with Triforce hunts”. But the future of every game they produce. Nintendo barely leaves a whimper in the room with every announcement. All I see is people getting disappointed that the new Wii U has crap online again, and irrelevant features like “tvii”. Sega games, from this past generation, still felt like GAMES! Not overblown tech demos like Sonic used to be. Capcom is focused on movies and fanservice, Konami is focused on movies period (lords of shadow), Nintendo is focused on gimmicks that have NOTHING to do with games, but to do  with promoting technological advancements in “convenience”. As if we didn’t have enough of that junk.

But Sega? Naw. They’re still the only company that actually makes games anymore, and is the main reason I would still support them. But if they get bought by Nintendo, that is the end of it. I’ve seen enough Sonic spin offs to know it wouldn’t end well AT ALL with Sega thinking about how they can use the touch pad to make you go faster by waving it around and twirling your fingers in a circle to do a spin attack. Then quickly tapping the center to do a homing or any other kind of bullshit they could think of. Why use such hyperbole? Why not? Afterall, this company believed that making you run by holding A, using stamina, and then FLICKING the nunchuck while running, using up more stamina, just to do a ROLL…was a good idea…. and this was after simply running and then pressing A to roll worked so much better. They FORCED the “innovation” into the game by complicating a simple ROLL! Why the FUCK would I want these jackoffs to make Sonic games!?

You Sonic fans that demanded this are going to face the onslaught of even WORSE Sonic games than ever before.

And just a note. Yes, the video says “rumor”, but do you have any idea how many rumors turned out to be TRUE this generation alone? That’s why my radar is up over this.
