I like how wombat said that cheapy was being racist. The real racist is wombat. Bringing out outdated japanese references. Mr Miyagi? Get this guy off the show. Can do some racist jew statements?

Wombat's gonna wombat.  Honestly, I was more surprised at Shipwreck's reaction to Cheapy explaining how some common parts of English don't exist in Japanese.




Japanese is a syllabic language, meaning all consonants apart from a final n must be followed by a vowel. This is most noticeable when an English word finishes with a consonant that is not n, for example booto (boat) and hoomu (home/ short for platform).

Another issue which is common to all nationalities and is a significant one here is sounds and sound distinctions which don’t exist in L1 but do in the English words that the Japanese word comes from. One common example is th, which is usually transformed into s (e.g. saado- third) or z (e.g. mazaa – mother). This can cause problems even for a Japanese learner who can pronounce thatch and this as a British person or American might, as they may remain unaware that the Japanese word shieta (theatre) is supposed to have that th sound when not speaking Japanese.

Yes, of course I'm aware the nub is used for Monster Hunter. The discussion was about if it made sense to redesign the 3ds and add a stick for one or two games that will support it?

Wombat sure wasn't aware of it, so it might have been worth you mentioning Monster Hunter 4G somewhere in here.


Wombat: This is two extra shoulder buttons and the second analog stick


Cheapy: But what games are gonna use that?  No one, I mean....

Wombat: That's what I'm saying, what's the point of this?  It is, it is a big change.

Cheapy: Nintendo thinks it's going to sell another fourty millions 3DSes I think

Wombat: But why? For what? What is the application of these two extra [buttons] and the second analog stick?

Shipwreck: So you can play games like any other console.

Wombat: But what games?



I think it does make sense for Nintendo to slap in some extra components (that are very cheap) that will make the newest installment of an extremely popular game play better.  The last Monster Hunter sold 4.1 million copies.

The new 3DS discussion was painful to listen to.  Wombat kept asking what the new version was designed for with its second analog stick/nubbin and two new shoulder buttons.  But even the guy who actually lives in Japan had no clue.

RE 4 on PC doesn't look like shit.

I bought a refurb Wii U after E3 for $200.  I really like the console and the OS, and my wife likes the $4 Art Academy app.  But there's no game I actually want to play on it till Bayonetta 2 comes out since I have no interest in the Mario and Zelda franchises.


Hopefully Fatal Frame V gets released in America.

Cheapy is home all day long while his wife works, but he never makes dinner?

FYI, Akham Knight takes place in Gotham City proper. They just kept Arkham for the branding.

And I agree with the guys that it's really dumb for them to do so.  Batman is the brand, not Arkham.

If you need a scientific study to tell you that other than the basic concept of evolution as proposed by Darwin (who must be rolling over in his grave with that question), I weep for your future.


So there aren't any.

I disagree because I have a brain and use it, unlike you and Wombat that can't tell the difference between something that is "normal" in a cultural aspect (as it should) and "normal" from a scientific one because of PC brainwashing.  


Evolution says every species should procreate, that is a basic fundamental of EVOLUTION.  If something does not procreate which homosexuals do not then they do not fit what is "normal" scientifically as once again procreation is the KEY cornerstone.  That we accept it normal culturally is a different matter but it doesn't change the fact it is not "normal" no matter how much PCtards who lack the ability to separate scientific fact with trying to not offend anyone.

Where are the scientific studies stating that some members of a species being homosexual is abnormal?

Bioshock Infinite sold over four million copies, but it didn't get to five million, let alone six.


But I don't think Titanfall cost as much to develop.  BI was in development for five years with a huge staff, including a lot of experienced and expensive names.

Wombat appears to be right about Titanfall.

Perhaps. He was clearly right about Infamous having more appeal on the PS4 as the first big exclusive after launch than it ever did on the PS3.  It's already sold over 1 million copies in just nine days.




I wonder when we will get a sales number for Titanfall.  It's been out for a month now and I haven't heard anything from EA or Microsoft.

When you talk out your ass like you did about Ground Zeroes this week and Sony exclusives a month ago you can safely predict there will be more people than just me who notice and comment on it.

Learn to read.  I have played FFX so I don't want to play it again.


I haven't played FFX-2 so I do want to play it on the Vita.

If Cheapy really wants to get a lot of people watching him stream for Child's Play he should try streaming Dark Souls.
