I was in a bad mood with a ton of negative thoughts in my mind and I got a bit too stressed out at work a few days ago and kind of lost it. I was sent home a few hours early with the thought that I was gonna lose my job. Sure enough, I came in yesterday to talk to the GM about it, and she just simply told me to not do that again, so I still have my job. Last thing I need is losing my job because I doubt even McDonald's or Taco Bell would hire me, and I'm sure my dad wouldn't be too happy about it.
I assume the reason why "backwards compatibility" is so limited on those systems is because each game pretty much has a separate emulator designed for it, or at least a separate configuration that the emulation engine uses for that particular game, I don't know how it works, but it's pretty much how Virtual Console games on the Wii. Wii U, and 3DS work. Same applies to emulated versions of older games packed into newer ones, like the NES games in Animal Crossing, Zelda Collector's Edition, and the many different Capcom/SNK/Taito/Data East/etc arcade compilations released for the PS2 and whatnot.
The PS2 actually used software emulation for PS1 games. Ironically enough, the guy Sony hired to code it was the lead programmer for Bleem, an early PS1 emulator for Windows that was released commercially and sold in stores, it's developer of which had gotten sued up the a** by Sony when they first released it. The reason the Wii U has true backward compatibility is because it uses a PowerPC CPU just like the Wii and GameCube did. In fact, it was proven through homebrew software that the Wii U can also play GameCube games through it's vWii mode, Nintendo just disabled it most likely because the Wii U lacks GameCube controller and memory card ports.
I don't know if they would benefit from it or not. I know that there are better known voice actors that will bring in viewers, but I don't know if the dub companies themselves enjoy a lot of attention. So I don't know if I would believe that someone watching a funimation dub on Netflix would cause any traffic on their own site. But having exclusivity to english Dragonball Super or whatever is guaranteed to bring people in, especially if it's one of the "dubbing giants" like Funimation who has a huge library that they can hold exclusively in their service. I know I would have a subcription to their service over Netflix and Crunchyroll if they were available in my region.
The kid that had some of the toys and tried to explain the concept and I just couldn't wrap my head around it. I can't even imagine it being a concept that would've hit me back in the days when I was into stuff with a weird concept where the whole world revolves around a kid's toy Bayblade or Battle B-Daman.
I haven't watched that review, but I looked it up and found LinkedIn profile of a different Yoko Ono who worked at Namco Bandai, so that's probably the one. I haven't gone out of my way to seek out his films, but I really like Simon Pegg too from the few movies I've seen. So far Paul was my favorite though. Haven't watched Hot Fuzz, though I've been meaning to.
Sorry it's taken a while for me to answer. I did enjoy the vacation and there hasn't been any problems with the mouth. Stitches are loosening up, but I didn't get a removal time for them so they're likely supposed to be types that are breaking off on their own.
Have fun with that. I think I mentioned it last year, but we don't have much of a halloween tradition in Finland. Nowadays there is a lot more merchandise in the stores for the season, but I don't expect to see pumpkin carvings and trick and treaters anytime soon. :/ I really enjoyed Parasyte, I had Crunchyroll subscription to get the subtitles as soon as they become available. I kinda miss that. I don't have any weekly shows at the moment and haven't been watching any new anime after JoJo. Don't have much more to add to the dub discussion that has been said before. Though I wonder how much of an effort / cost it would really be to include dub and original audio to Netflix series. I'd imagine why that hasn't happened is because a lot of the companies like Funimation have their own subscription service so the licenses stay inside the house.
Oh sweet, I know that the game is being localized, but I hadn't even thought about the TV show. I don't know when they ran originally, but over here Monsuno and Bakugan came out long after my time. I only kinda know Bakugan because years ago I worked a summer as an overseer at a kindergarten and that was the in thing with the kids at the moment. I think I've heard Monsuno before, I think my cousins kid had some toys. They were some weird tube monsters, right?
Do you remember my alias "Simon Hayes"? My mind was blown earlier this week because I was watching Les MIserables and in the credits Simon Hayes was credited for audio mixing. After checking their IMDB they had worked on many of my favorite movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and Shaun of the Dead. I'm almost convinced that he's a time-travelling future me who's come to make sure that all of my favorite films will have amazing audio because I don't remember finding anything when I looked up if it's an actual name before I started using it ages ago.
I'm already fine after getting taste of blood out of my mouth, now this is just vacation for me. There hasn't been any aching or bleeding and my mouth isn't soar for removal.
Cool. Looks like the game won't be here until beginning of November. I think I'll be missing out on the collector's edition since I already got the pricey Japanese one. I'm thinking about going digital for this. No doubt, I'd be surprised if that is the earliest upload since the soundtracks already came out in June with Japanese editions. The ones I mentioned are nowhere near the only tracks that I really enjoy. I listen to the soundtrack a lot on iTunes and I have five starred ten songs already and I usually only bother with songs that are really high up on my favorites.
So, have you been up to anything else than Persona 4 Dancing All Night?
I'm good. Currently on a sick leave due to surgical removal of a tooth that had cracked badly a while back.
Persona 4: Daning All Night might be my second favorite rhythm game after Elite Beat Agents. I was really impressed with the soundtrack, I've heard quite a few of the songs before and they didn't really grab me, but P4D has many awesome mixes that put the songs up there on my favorites. My favorite tracks are Signs of Love ("NEVER MORE" P4D EDIT ver.) and Backside Of The TV (Lotus Juice Remix). I'll need to look more into the DLC and their release schedule. They'd be the reason for me to rebuy the game. Did you get the special edition?
Yeah. Before I've always thought that all good games deserve their money, so part of me is glad that I didn't stoop to buying it pre-owned. Though even that is only because it's unlikely that I get to Gamestop this year even though I originally expected a chance in Fall. I'll rather send them the message by leaving them to scratch their heads wondering why Metal Gear Solid 6 by outsourced studio nobody isn't bringing in the cash anymore. But with them wanting to focus on mobile and gambling games they could even be intentionally trying to sink their AAA ship as a one last FU to everyone who's helped them to get this far. They won't need gamers to sell "Metal Gear Boobs" erotic pachinko to a bunch of panty sniffing salarymen but with outrage they'll certainly get a lot of free advertisement.
Didn't know that Corpse Party was getting a new game. I don't know if I'd be interested in playing them, but I really enjoyed watching Let's Plays of previous titles. Hearing about most of these for the first time. I've seen the new Tales of on many store websites though and totally forgot Yo-Kai Watch was getting a western release, had no idea it already had release scheduled. For a second I thought Akihiko Yoshida was artist for the Legend of Legacy, kinda awkward seeing his style mimicked. Oh yeah, forgot that Persona 5 was supposed to be this year release since we haven't seen that much about it or at least I haven't.
-Sticks Out Tongue- R.I.P Elizabeth (Lizzie) Marie. 1997-2014
The pumpkin that I carved for Halloween 2014. The design is of Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid franchise. It only took me about 3 hours in total, but it was well worth it, and it came out better than I thought it would.
