That's simply because the spoiler tags are rendered as blocks instead of inline. phpBB problem (or rather, whatever it is used to implement the spoiler tags).

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

DRM is fundamentally broken because contents need to stay unencrypted in memory to be used, and because you often have part of the keys needed to unlock the content on the media that is "protected". In short, there will *always* be a way to bypass it, in one way or another. It's a lost bat...

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

10k wouldn't even lead to any meaningful results. And it wouldn't necessarily be difficult, just time-consuming. Would be a good start if properly sampled. Source: I'm not a statistician, but I do a lot of number-crunching scientific statistics in my day job. So, if researchers can prove there's a ...

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

Do video games cause or lead to the development of issues like antisocial behavior, addiction, desensitization, sexual ambiguity, etc...in gamers? A proper answer would require a really big sample (10K or more people) with proper means of extracting the required information. This would be difficult...

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

Well, what are those companies doing? Providing a product to a public: supply and demand. Arguments from capitalism perhaps, but they've got to eat their daily bread, haven't they? Notice that in this case we're not talking about the government, or an imposition: it is simply a product on the market...

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

that Nintendo of America is making the decision to remove it. So the company that owns the product isn't comfortable with selling the product in its current state, so they want to change it. The problem is about the motivations or rather lack thereof. This screams "we're scared by any possible...

No one is being forced to see, play, and approve of this content, though.

Re: Shin Jigen Game Neptune VII announced! (coming to PS4)

Notice that there's a surprisingly mutually exclusive choice at a certain point of the game, and I think you chose a different option than us. That said, character development is quite low in the game IMO. That's because most characters "rotate" in position for very little periods of time,...

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

Yes. The internet. Where people sometimes choose to post reaction GIFs instead of talking. It's not exactly uncommon, nor a sign that a conversation can't take place. :lol: But in this case it doesn't answer any point taken in the discussion, only shows a "mocking" tone that may just exac...

Re: Shin Jigen Game Neptune V II - DLC Characters Thread

A bit of a problem is that characters in the back row don't get any experience points (unlike V), which adds some annoying grind.

Spoiler:
In the Zero Jigen chapter there's also a required cutscene with Histoire, which occurs in the very brief time you're in the Cho Jigen.

Re: Shin Jigen Game Neptune VII announced! (coming to PS4)

It amazes me how the good news of a game being announced, regardless of how inevitable it was, has lead to pretty much nothing but complaints so far. Then again, I probably shouldn't be surprised. If history serves us well, the translations were horrible from start to finish in all games, even unde...
