I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

Looks like Sony is going the same was as Nintendo and Sega and putting out a "classic" mini console.

 

https://www.gamespot...o/1100-6461868/

 

Gonna be $100, have 20 games including FF7 and Wild Arms, and launch on the 24th birthday of the original Playstation console, December 3rd.

 

Looks interesting to me, though I'd like to see what the other games are.

NO TOMBA NO SALE.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I guess they'll pick out games where it doesn't matter, but using the pre-Dual Shock controller design goes a long way to putting me off it.

I think the largest thing with me and the PS classic is most of those games you can get legitimately, rather easy on modern hardware.

For me these more recent systems don't have the appeal of the older ones. Not because they're not fun, but 3D graphics haven't aged well while the old 2D has.

Of the games they've revealed...only Tekken 3 isn't available on the PSN store.  Assuming they allow M-rated games, it opens a LOT of major titles.

At minimum, I'm guessing the usual suspects like Castlevania: SotN, Metal Gear Solid, Syphon Filter, Twisted Metal, Resident Evil 2, Tomb Raider, probably trying to get Gran Turismo, Crash and Spyro on as well.  Probably snag a couple more Square titles (maybe Chrono Cross?).  Might be a major boon if they get some rarities like Einhander on it.

 

I'm a bit mixed.  I figured this was coming, but at $5 per title...that's not an appreciable value over using a Vita or PSP, much less any sort of decent emulation box.  I'm disappointed they stuck with only 20 titles rather than 25 (y'know, "25 for 25 years").  The decision NOT to use even ONE Dual Shock will limit options for later PSOne titles which took advantage of that feature, unless they plan on sell classic Dual Shocks separately.  Which wouldn't surprise me given they aren't even including a dang AC adaptor.

 

Right now? I'd be FAR more interested in a Dreamcast mini.  Aside from Tekken 3 (of the show titles), I can EASILY get and play the other revealed titles on my PSTV.  And given the age of the games, 1080p isn't going to do those chunky graphics any favors.  We'll see what other titles they show and what featured they might bake into the system.

I'm leaning to "probably not" since Trigger wasn't a particularly huge release for the system.  Again, Chrono Cross I feel has a decent chance.

Here's my rough guess on what titles it will have, disregarding things likely to be tied down with significant license concerns (ie, no sports, no media tie in).  I'm also going to assume redundancy on franchises will be a minimum.  Otherwise, half the games would be Squaresoft stuff!

 

From Sony, we can get a good chunk of titles:

Syphon Filter

Gran Turismo

Legend of Dragoon

WipEout or Wipeout 2097

Twisted Metal (1 or 2)

Medievil

Hot Shots Golf 2

The aforementioned Wild Arms and Jumping Flash

 

From Namco:

Tekken 3

Ridge Racer Type 4

 

From Square

Tomb Raider

Final Fantasy 7

Chrono Cross or Soul Reaver

 

From Capcom:

Resident Evil 2

 

From Konami:

Metal Gear Solid

Castlevania: SotN

Silent Hill (not sure this will make the cut)

 

And a special license for Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon.  Maybe drop in Crash Team racing in there as well to cover the multiplayer area.  We'll see how accurate in the coming weeks I am!  Again, it remains to be seen if they'll commit to those M-rated titles or what sort of licensing hurdles they'll have to clear for Crash and Spyro.  I would be SHOCKED if they managed to get any sort of sports game (like Tony Hawk) on the device.

Yeah, some titles will have to require Sony to get the okay from the companies who made them (which is what Nintendo did for the NES and SNES Classic).  But chances are the titles will probably be those that defined the system (thus why Final Fantasy VII is among the initial five announced).

 

And seeing a trailer that had the thing have a provisional PEGI 18 rating, there may be a good chance some M-rated titles will be added (most notable being Resident Evil 2 and Metal Gear Solid, if Sony gets Capcom and Konami's okay).  Also, what is this Virtual Disc that can be changed?  Does that mean something like interchangeable games or something like that?

Because seriously. Why not. A Playstation made from modern, more durable parts, with HDMI ports, maybe an internal memory card....

The only solace I take is that it appears that it appears to be using a USB controller connection, so MAYBE a Dual Shock 3 or 4 could work with it, which would allow those later analog games like MGS viable.  Similar to how you could use the Wii Pro controller on the NES classic and get some extra functionality.

 

Again, I'd HAVE to have to see a complete title list, and even then...it would NEED some major rarities NOT available on another platform.  Tekken 3 is nice, but I can play Tekken 2 easily, and I don't have a major nostalgic pull for it.  Again, the other 4 titles are EASILY gettable on PSN.  And my PSTV is out putting at the same 720p that the Classic is reported to run at.
