I'm 25 year old fellow from Southern Finland. I mainly go by Fami and Shii.
I consider myself quite a video game enthusiast with a lot of my time involving video games in one way or another, whether it's listening to video game music, reading news, discussing, thinking, collecting or even playing some of them once in a while.

I've played video games throughout my whole life starting with NES, though I don't have many memories from back then besides watching my brother and father play Super Mario Bros. 3. Most of my early childhood gaming memories involved Super Nintendo and Sega Master Syster with Zelda, fighting games and platformers. I started taking gaming more seriously during fifth generation with games like Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy VII and my interest kept growing to my teen years with Playstation 2 until I had a burn out and only started slowly recovering quite far into seventh generation with Nintendo DS Lite and later Xbox 360. Now I'm more into gaming than ever before. My current main systems are Playstation 4 and Vita.

I used to be huge into anime (and all things Japan) as well, but the interest ended up fading away. But it's something that I've also started to pick up slowly again with shows like Attack on Titan and Space Dandy. The latter of which might very well be my new favorite anime. Some of my past favorites have been Trigun, GTO, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Dragon Ball Z, Hajime no Ippo, School Rumble and Neon Genesis Evangelion. I also used to read manga with my favorites being Ranma ½, Dragon Ball and Detective Conan. Naruto was the only long lasting series that I've been following lately, though that came to it's end. Nowadays I've also started to get more into western comics like Fables, Y: The Last Man, The Walking Dead and Guardians of the Galaxy among other superhero comics. I follow many western cartoons like Archer and South Park. I don't follow many "real" TV shows, but currently watching Better Call Saul. I'm a huge fan of Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. My favorite movie series is Star Wars.

I'm fueled by music, but I always had impossible time trying to describe my taste. Even when I really like few songs from some artist, I rarely get around looking more into their other stuff. Some of the few artists / bands I've looked bit more into are Elvis Presley, Pentatonix, Queen, Scatman John, The Silent Comedy and Voltaire. I also listen a lot of nerdy artists on Youtube, like my favorite, Gavin "Miracle of Sound" Dunne. If you want to know more about my taste, my profile's playlists has plenty of music I love. This playlist especially has many of my all-time favorite "real" songs. Here's some nerdy favorites and VG Music.

Some of my past obsessions have been mythology and folklore. As a kid The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Myths & Legends by Arthur Cotterell was my favorite book, my aunt's ex-husband had it and I would always read it and take notes when I visited them. Also used to love reading about all sorts of paranormal stuff, even though I never was a believer. I'm not very knowledgeable, but I love space and I'm an avid stargazer. I take lots of photos of moon and stars, even though my camera isn't great for that.

Favorite Quote(s):

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

Just felt like I should comment back about Criminal Girls 2. Congratulations! I checked out your Imgur again and I think Shinoa's and Lili's alternate costumes are great. (I got their names from checking out the wiki.)

I'm going to try and make this next reply one whole reply. Starting with "Part 2" of your reply even though it might seem a little odd.

Like I've mentioned before in a PM, I'm not a fan of how Nintendo locks their save data to cartridges, so I hope they allow you to save directly to the cartridge and/or on an SD card. And I hope this goes for all physical games on the Switch. I know the 3DS saves digital games and their save data to the SD card on the 3DS, but I wish it also worked for physical games as well. I hope to see something like that happen with the Switch. I hope they allow you to add more storage as well if it's an SD card. I'd hate to be stuck with a permanent storage capacity whether it be low or high.

Then hopefully you can see that's how I feel about the situation with Skyrim Remastered. But human beings are fickle people as well as complainers, especially the PC Mustard Master Race. By the time I get a console to play Skyrim Remastered I'm betting that the game will have had a couple price drops.

That's precisely what Apple TV is. It allows you to watch stuff like Netflix and YouTube (as well as a whole lot of other stuff) on your TV. I see. I'd link you the PlayStation Vue website but it seems to be finicky whenever I try to use it. It's basically just another alternative to the major TV service companies. Sony will stream live TV and sports to your PlayStation system for a price.

Agreed. (Not much else I could've added here.)

Oh okay. Well then you should be a comedian because you actually had me believing you! I thought you were going to bite my head off for a minute there. (Not much I can really add here either. I already answered about the Skyrim Remaster and the possibility of waiting for a price drop at the beginning of this reply.) Yeah, they can't really upgrade a Skyrim on Xbox ONE/PS4 that doesn't exist. Even though I still don't agree that one group should get special priority over the other, I can come to terms with it. I'd rather see both parties have to rebuy the game again to make it seem fair, but you already adressed that in your reply and I kind of addressed that at the beginning of mine.

Agreed. (Not much I can add here either.)

By the way, I think this is going to be my last lengthy reply for awhile. We've been discussing things for well over a week now and I can see that I'm starting to wind down. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy our discussions, but I think I need a bit of a break.

By the way, it looks like the Switch isn't backwards compatible with 3DS/Wii U games. This doesn't rule out digitally rereleased titles and ports though. It seems like Nintendo doesn't want the Switch to be seen as the Wii U or 3DS's successor. A question I'd like answered though is how the Switch will save a persons progress. Is there an SD card in the tablet? If so, is that SD card then read when you put the tablet portion back in the dock? I didn't see an external hard drive in the trailer so I hope Nintendo won't be requiring them for the Switch. I think external hard drives should just be an option, not a requirement. I hope Nintendo learned from the Wii U's low storage capacity. The only other thing I can think of is data being sent between the dock and tablet via the cloud/wi-fi but you'd likely need a constant connection for that.

I also have a question I'd like to ask you. I thought that I should've added it in my actual reply but I forgot. Hypothetically speaking, If Nintendo ever went into PC gaming and they were releasing a game to PC users as well as console users but only one group got it free, would you accept that? I find it kind of unfair to treat one group differently than the other but that's just me.

I guess it just doesn't bother me as much as it does other people. I just don't think it's my place to tell people how they should live their lives even if others find it detestable. I don't have anything else to add on the subject though.

When people first heard of the PS TV they thought it was Sony's answer to Apple's Apple TV. So yeah, they really didn't research the device before talking about it they just saw the name. Now Sony offers their PlayStation Vue TV service so I guess they want to start being like Microsoft and the Xbox ONE being an all-in-one entertainment system. I didn't need a PS TV because I already had a PS Vita at the time that can play all of its games.

Agreed. I can't believe that people are planning already since we don't know any of the other specifics surrounding the Nintendo Switch. I also saw one guy in the VGD who's just interested in the Switch because of the possibility of Skyrim on the go. Skyrim on the go would be nice, but I don't think it's worth getting a Switch just for that one game and aspect when they can already play it on other systems. For some reason I remembered those "Wii would like to play" Nintendo commercials the other day. I don't think Nintendo is going to completely forget about their family-friendly label anytime soon with the Switch. Especially if they're going to keep Treehouse around to still censor niche video games published by Nintendo. I'd be surprised if that info is true and if the Switch is region-free because then I can import games from Europe or elsewhere that are physical over there and digital-only releases over here. I can see that I brought up a hot-button issue when I questioned the price of Skyrim Remastered. I'm still not crazy about the price and that's because I can't help but feel gypped when PC owners who already own the game and DLC are getting the upgrade free when console owners who also already own the game and DLC aren't. It'd be nice if Skyrim Remastered received a discount or something for some time at release at least. I just can't help but feel like PC owners are getting some kind of special treatment in this situation.

No idea. I think your rant was just too much for Gaia to handle. It wouldn't surprise me if Konami does just that, but they'll probably release Metal Gear Survive onto the Nintendo Switch. I don't really have an interest in Metal Gear Survive though. I just see it being like Capcom's Umbrella Corps multiplayer spin-off from Resident Evil. Even Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City wasn't that much better.

No, not hentai, incestuous relationships. They don't understand how anime can show incestuous relationships or at least hint to incestuous feelings one character has for another that are never reciprocated. They also don't understand that cousins can be married in Japan as well as some states in America. They just see the whole thing as deplorable without actually researching stuff.

Agreed. The PS TV is also no longer being made and sold in Japan, so the only way people in the west can get it is if they buy it used or find some place that still has it in stock. I guess the PS Vita did better than the PS TV sales-wise or something. I bet Sony wasn't expecting that to happen.

I also like how seamless it seems and I hope the battery life of the tablet portion is great, but so far I've seen people in the VGD contemplate getting rid of their PS3 and PS Vita for the Switch. I find that funny because it's not like the Switch is going to have the same library of games as the PS3 or PS Vita. These are people who probably purchased a PS Vita or PS3 to play a couple games though. I hope the Switch keeps third-party support too, and that those third-party companies don't end up porting games to it with missing features like I heard happened on the Wii U. I've seen people speculate that it's a new Splatoon or DLC or even an enhanced port of the old one. If it is a new one, I hope they call it Spla2oon or something like that. (I see your SplaTWOon, and I raise you Spla2oon!) I imagine Skyrim is going to be on the Switch, I just don't see why they'd show it in the trailer if it wasn't. Unless Bethesda is that keen to advertise Skyrim Remastered since it's priced at $60.00 over here. I've heard that PC owners are getting Skyrim Remastered free if they already have the game and all of the DLC. I don't understand how Bethesda can price the remaster that way unless they add even more content to the game which I don't think they are. Just getting a better resolution and all the DLC (and mod-support) for a 5 year old game isn't worth $60.00, Bethesda. (Now, I haven't had the chance to use mods yet, but my idea of fun isn't swinging a lightsaber while naked. Although I admit that would be funny until the novelty of it wore off.) I could just purchase the Legendary Edition at a cheaper price and all I'd really be missing out on is the mod support and better resolution. If the Switch allows mods I can see Nintendo going the same way as Sony did and that's no third-party mods. And yeah, I saw the Switch partner list earlier. I'm surprised Konami is on there. I don't even know what they're going to be making. The first ever pachinko machine simulator for the Nintendo Switch? Pull the lever!

Yep, I was surprised when I first heard about it too.

Oh, I didn't know that. I might just be misremembering, but I think I've seen Journey and a few other games more than once on PlayStation Plus for the PS3. Personally, I think all PlayStation Plus really needs is a couple Triple AAA and Japanese titles showing up more often. And if they still want to do the indie games, then they can do them with a couple of Triple AAA/Japanese games as well.

I don't know if Finland has their own fair share, but America has "Sugar Daddy's" and "Baby Daddy's". (What's really funny is that Sugar Daddy is also a candy over here.) It's kind of assumed that rednecks/hicks are another kind of people who inbreed with themselves over in America. There's plenty of weird relationships out there (guys marrying virtual characters, old men marrying young women, etc.) so I don't think an incestuous relationship is unheard of in the world. There's just those few anime fans in the A/M/C and other sites that just can't understand it from what I've seen.

Sony can't make up their minds on the PS Vita. First they say "We aren't making any more first-party PS Vita games." in a statement. Then "We were talking about the old PS Vita model, not the new one!" And lastly they come out and say "We still have more games planned we just don't know when!" The only thing Sony really does for the PS Vita now is release new models and firmware software updates. Ah. I didn't know Nintendo called their discs "optical discs". I only know them by the name of the console they were used in. For example Wii U discs, Wii discs, GameCube discs. It seems like the Nintendo Switch does have wireless controllers. I imagine they'd also have motion controls. It won't surprise me if you can slide and unslide off different controllers for the Nintendo Switch. (fan-made.) I'm just glad they have something like a classic controller for the Nintendo Switch. The default controllers just look too small when slid off the tablet. It also looks like they'll be rereleasing Wii U titles (as seen with Splatoon in the trailer). It looks like it's also going to have Skyrim Remastered released onto it (except neither company are actually confirming it as a possibility) so I imagine it'll get other titles that are already released from other new systems. I just hope it doesn't play the "remaster game" for the first couple of years like the Xbox ONE and PS4 did. I hope Nintendo or another company also releases a carrying case for the handheld portion. There's no way that it's going to fit in your pocket easily like the 3DS/DS did. I guess people already have Tablet cases and backpacks though. "At least you don't have to download game installer and only then start the installation like you did on PS3, I hated that... Mostly because I always forgot and when I go to play the game I realize that I'll still have to wait forever for installation." I disliked this as well. What was even more dumb is that you needed double the storage space just to download a game off of PSN. Only have 12GBs in your harddrive? You'll need at least 24GB to download the installer and after it's done you'll get that extra 12GB back that wasn't taken up by the game. When I see games like Call of Duty: Infinite Warefare hitting 130GBs in harddrive space it makes me fear for the worse of whats to come. Not that I planned on playing a Call of Duty game or the Modern Warfare remaster.

You'd think Sony would want to make extra money for themselves and the developers they're offering the games from on PlayStation Plus for. It makes sense to me at least. They need to start trying something new and break away from putting the same games up on PlayStation Plus like Journey. I can't even count how many times I've seen the same game pop up monthly. I'm sure they have plenty of recent games on PS4 now that can be put up on PlayStation Plus.

Felt like I should've added this in. emotion_facepalm

Don't forget about the few DSi-exclusives, which seems to be the case with the New 3DS so far. Both handhelds seem to be alike in more ways than one.

Well, I also mean't live-action stuff as well in the west, but I see what you mean. (I don't know if you got that or not from my other reply.) I've seen that sister act plenty of times. Another thing I've seen is where the sibling isn't an actual sibling and is just an adopted cousin or something. Some people still find that incestuous but Japan is known to have cousins marry each other in real life or fictional. If it was an actual brother marrying a sister I think that'd be stranger than two cousins marrying each other. Even some states over here in America allow second cousins to marry each other. (Not that I have a fetish for incest or anything.) I don't see how unwilling or non-consensual would do it for me either. Though I'm not one to play hentai games so I've never quite experienced it. (Although the closest I've probably seen to that is probably in anime videos.) The most I ever play is ecchi games.

I'd actually say that the DSi is exactly like how the New 3DS was. I don't mean spec-wise, but how it was created to be slightly better than it's predecessor. I mean, sure, it had some changes like DSiWare, and a couple cameras but it wasn't a complete change from the DS. The DSi just screams "the New 3DS's sibling" (to me) if that makes sense. It also didn't last long compared to the 3DS and DS's lifetime. If Nintendo has learned anything from Sony, it's that discs don't work for handhelds unless they can hold as much as a Blu-Ray. There's a reason why UMDs became obsolete after the PSP and it's not just because of the limited storage. Nintendo does have the discs they use for the Wii U, though I don't see them making them smaller for the NX. At least they wouldn't have to worry about "mandatory installs" if they ever did though. (I've heard that the Wii U discs don't need an install to run.) I did hear a rumour that they were going to use cartridges for the NX. Whenever I get an Xbox ONE and PS4 I hope the installation times aren't crazy. I think it's because games aren't being as compressed as much as they were before, but I don't think I could handle a several hour installation for one game. At least both consoles seem to have that "Play as you install" feature so at least that's something. I remember PlayStation Plus having an installation feature as well even though I haven't renewed my subscription in months. (I prefer not paying to get to my supposedly "free" games, Sony.) I guess the other services you get with PlayStation Plus are nice though. I liked how it would update my trophies automatically since it would take forever whenever I manually did it for some reason. Then Sony had to go and up the price of PlayStation Plus. I always liked how it was slightly cheaper than Xbox LIVE.

I haven't seen that many people who can do arousing noises and sexiness very well in the west unless we're talking about the TV/Movie scene. (I'm not forgetting about supermodels/models being sexy I just don't think it applies here since I haven't exactly seen them do arousing noises when being photographed or when they're on a runway modeling.) I would also include the adult entertainment scene but sometimes they can just artificially exaggerate the sounds they're making. (I guess that can also apply to actors/actresses in TV/Movies though depending on how well they can act.) I don't think game companies want added expenses like dual audio for niche games. It'd be nice to have but I don't see them doing it if they want to save on money and don't expect that many sales for the game to begin with.

I doubt that the NX is going to be region free. I just don't see Nintendo breaking a trend that they've been doing for years. But it'd be a surprising and welcomed feature by me if they actually make the NX region free. People are also hoping that you'll be able to play Wii U and 3DS games on the NX. I don't think that's going to happen with the system. If I recall correctly, Nintendo usually only does backwards compatibility for past single systems. Wii > GCN. Wii U > Wii. DS > GBA. DSi > DS. etc. (I'm not even including digital releases like on Virtual Console or similar services.) The 3DS might be a special case though, since it allows people to play DS games and the very few DSi games that were ever released. I think people are expecting the NX to have dual backwards compatibility because it's rumored to be a console/handheld hybrid. That said, people will probably have to buy a third-party console like the Retron 5 if they want to play a variety of games across different consoles on a single system.

Interesting. I still think it's weird that they aren't even moaning a little bit during the punishment motivation mini-game. It just makes it a tad awkward (to me) when the only thing you're hearing is the sound effect of whatever tool you're using and the background music. But hey, at least they comment on the score and performance so that's something. I've come to accept (Japanese VO) if I want to play excellent games like the Yakuza series with English subtitles. I'm not even ashamed to admit that I enjoy the gasps, panting and whatnot that the Japanese voice actresses do. (I still use headphones though. I don't need any weird looks.) There's just something titillating about it. I haven't seen that many English voice actresses that are able to pull off the same kind of sensual nuance. I'll have to check out your Imgur again later on.

Yeah, I imagine that they all have their own specific guidelines to fall under. Nonsensical or otherwise. I think Germany is just one of those countries that just has some very strange guidelines. Maybe even Australia as well. Germany would probably only accept the title screen of Criminal Girls 2 and then the end credits of the game if it ever released there. Good thing the PS Vita is region-free! Another time where I can't escape censorship is if a game was released over here digital-only and the only physical copy happens to be in Japanese. Or if it was released over here digital-only and I can't import the physical copy from Europe or somewhere else because of region-locking. (Nintendo, I'm looking at you.) I'm glad that Asian editions are becoming a thing even though they have their own fair share of problems like the possibility of having an Engrish translation. Beggars can't be choosers, I guess.
