Ok, yea - even though this is the Playstation Zeitgeist, some times i talk about life a bit and what not - Imo not chasing females (they chase me, but i have to calm them down a bit - yes, its like the manga My Balls (and I heard its funny), only with a equal amount of traps - but i never would have relations with the traps... 
 
Ok, here is what is on my mind - Yakuza 3 is out and unless stated otherwise, god only knows I want to buy it but my principles are my principles, dont cut content unless you lower the price - period.  
 
Is it me, or did SquareEnix sponsored the whole new monday night wars? FFXII was the big star. But expect some upsets come April when the NPD's comes out. But if your really looking for a game to buy - go get God of War III. Took half the time of FFXII and looks 3 times as nice. Something the Japanese developers haven't gotten the hang of yet. 
 
As for Tim Rogers comments about Japan, i got to be fair - he's mostly correct - but i feel that his comments are more against the US than Japan - why? Its simple. 
 
Tim Rogers wants to be free to be who he wants to be - and as so long as America continues to keep playing its "jock/geek/prep/goth games beyond its intended end date - High School, then Tim Rogers can have his opinions about Japan, but IMO - their misguided. 
 
This is the problem I have with many folks dealing with Japan (or most other countries for that matter) - they have the notion whatever the western media promotes as "the Japanese" is the truth. But didnt even the TMNT (the new series - during the start of the Demon Shredder Season) stated that Perception is never reality? 
 
See, the reality is that Japan sees a cycle (just like China does) but the thing is - they forgot about the cycle. They know about it in the back of their back of their mind - however they go about there business not knowing why the cycle exist or why everything there business want to promote dont stick. 
 
Have you heard of the concept, Ee Ja Nai Ka? According to Wikipedia - it was a complex religious celebration - almost decesending into utter madness. This happened towards the end of the last shogunate.   
 
One of the things im beginning to see - this moe/loli thing - is really three things: One, on its underlying basis - its like the Ee Ja Nai Ka - made modernized. Second, its to put the US Dubbers out of business. If you really think about it - the reason why they have made all the moe/loli series in the last few years wasn't really because of some otaku who just got lucky in love. First reason was because the US Dubbers had screwed with the Japanese companies one too many times. Time to screw them back, where it hurts. The major reason i felt this is going down - its a backlash against feminism and the Old Guard. The reason why the Old Guard was because of what happened in the economic issues Japan had for nearly 20 years (and still hasn't been fixed and will get worse). Second part was feminism. Its that after those issues came down, women had to work too. What happened that potential mates for these Otaku (holding the industry money wise in place) were taken away - by the same "Old Guard" 
who now after pressure by other western states and other recent events - is mulling a mosaic for these moe/loil stars.  
  
I stated on another blog on the Whiskey Network somewhere - that if they pull that off, along with some death's in the industry - then what we called "anime" might become nonviable, and in turn - will hurt the american industry (outside of Pixar and the like since they focus on films which projects take 4 to 6 years to complete). 
 
Even though i hate, really hate the loli/moe thing - my point has been and always will be the act is the crime and holding real photos live action tapes of said acts are crimes. Thats it. No beating around the bush.   
 
So what Tim Sees, is this Ee Ja Nai Ka, but it shows in different ways in different demographics.  
 
But my advice to Tim, really and truly - is to discover his past. He keeps moving around trying to find a place he belongs - and then he complains about how different things are and what not. But if he really looks his family's history - and understand where he came from then he would see the world in a different light and wouldn't just be so angry about where he lives and so on.  
 
In fact, a lot of folk have been denied that history of their own families life's, no matter what color they are. I think what the media has done sadly is promote one part of the family - then destroys it at the same end to the detriment of its own media, its artists; producers and the audience there trying to promote to. See, society has made agreements on what should be allowed, what's in the gray area and what isn't allowed. Sadly, because the fight over religion, on who can marry or not marry, on our economic problems - it has broken the wound that should have been healed. But im a critic on society - and i feel that this "deconstruction" going down in the final analysis, good for humanity... My worry is we gonna fuck it up and turn into automatons but thats what you get when you try to medicate shit not needed to be medicated. (did i tell you that i respect CM Punk but really dont get the Straight Edge Movement?) 
 
Ok guys, i need a good game to replace Yakuza 3 - there are three games on the list - yall choose the one i should get: 
 
Resonance of Fate: 
 
MLB 10: The Show: 
 
Heavy Rain: 
 
Wait it out Until Fist of the North Star (note I will get Super Street Fighter 4 regardless) 
 
Your own personal Choice: 
 
Want to hear what you think... 
 
(I should do more reviews, but isn't Ironic i haven't finished half the games I bought - not because there good, but there good to finish - dont want it to end too quick and all that jazz) 
 
Oh before i forget, I am building a new website - and it doubles as a production company. You hear more about it in the coming weeks... 
 
More later...

His entitled to it. He didn't use it excessively, like every sentence.

Yes he is entitled to it, but it's not a good style to write in. I'm giving him some advice, which I hope he takes on board cause he's obviously into writing and that will make it look better.

It's not FFXII it's FFXIII. Don't do those mistakes or no one will take you remotely serious.
