"All the default settings for sound and whatnot are fine, but I notice an interesting option at the bottom: 'Hero's Voice.' Voice A is somewhat husky and masculine, maybe in that I'm-gay-but-fanfic-writers-always-put-me-on-top way. But Voice B sounds like a 14-year-old girl returning a volley in a tennis match. Perfect."

Summer gaming

Hoping to have a new recap finished before I go on vacation next week. In the meantime! How about an open thread about what you all are playing at the moment? Or about whatever you feel like talking about, in case anybody has another novel’s worth of comments about Final Fantasy VII in them(I kid. It was only a novella’s worth.)

As for me, I’ve been playing:

Mario Kart 8. Are you playing Mario Kart? You should really be playing Mario Kart.

Hearthstone. I do not recommend reading any forums about this game. The posts are a perfect distillation of the worst whining from both Magic and WoW players. It’s gruesome.

Sims 3. I don’t even know why, but I started a neighborhood of Game of Thrones characters. The Starks are basically the Duggars.

YOU GUYS.

If you haven’t taken a moment today to read about the greatest wedding in history, please do so. I’ve had an epiphany.

Consider the following facts of the Kimye union:

- The venue was the Forte di Belvedere, an elegant “castle” that is, in reality, a military fortification.

- The wedding was presided over by black marble naked man statues.

- One major stumbling block for the wedding was a spotlight shining on a woman’s crotch.

And MOST IMPORTANTLY:

- The dinner table was a slab of marble with names engraved onto it, many of them misspelled.

There’s just no way around it. Kanye and Kim had a Suikoden-themed wedding.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy Open Thread

I don’t even know how many of you are into the Layton series. I just wanted to share this:

Layton-azran1

For anyone not playing the game, two things about this scenario:

1) These two are Luke’s parents;
2) This outfit, termed “vintage hipster Rinoa” by Jeanne, was designed by Luke, only to serve as the world’s most ridiculous boner stoker for his own father.

Don’t miss it, baby.

So, after a heartstopping masterclass in trolling, Atlus finally announced Persona 5 at the end of a live stream today.

But, I’m ashamed to say, I’m kind of more excited about this at the moment. Yu’s got the moves.

Am I hallucinating due to the after-effects of my latest P4 recap, or is this actually happening?

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies Open Thread

Jesus, that is a mouthful of a title.

Anyway, feel free to talk about the newest Anal Attorney game here. We ask that, if you want to talk spoilers, you preface your post with a specific spoiler warning (e.g. “Spoilers through case 4″). Remember that Jeanne and I have to check the comments so we’d appreciate not finding out that Phoenix and Edgeworth die at the end with each other’s penises in their hands.

And for those of you who want to be sure to remain entirely unspoiled, I would suggest just waiting to read this thread until later. Non-spoilery funny lines, wardrobe commentary, and so on are totally fine to discuss without spoiler warnings.

Like this!
