Announcements and Releases / Screwy Wordpress
« on: October 26, 2013, 12 AM »
Tonight's Wordpress upgrade did not go as planned. Despite our backups (YES TOM, THERE ARE BACKUPS, DON'T YOU DARE ASK ABOUT BACKUPS) there was some kind of conflict with the theme files in our Wordpress installation and main page posts are no longer displaying. I'm aware of the problem and vaguely aware of why it's happening, but currently unsure of how to fix it. I will continue working on this problem through the weekend.

Because apparently I didn't have better things to do.

That's why you don't send books you give a shit about! THIS COULD BE A GREAT WAY TO GET RID OF BOOKS!

General Discussion / Book Exchange
« on: October 08, 2013, 10 PM »
I'll preface by saying this may be something we'd need a slightly more active forum for. But the idea should work with just a few members as well.

What I propose is a book trading experiment. Take a book you enjoy and mail it off to a friend. Either your friend mails you one of their own, or a different participant mails you a book. We could split it into categories, or you could say what types of genres you're more interested in. The exchange would, of course, include novels, but also manga if people are interested. There's a bit of an honor system involved, so I would recommend sending books you like, but aren't terribly attached to (or own multiple copies of).

My little sister was involved in an exchange like this for quite some time and got some rather excellent reads from it. What do you guys think? Is this something anyone would be interested in? We can sort out the logistics from there if we get a few people involved.

Gaming / Team Ico / the Last Guardian updates and discussion
« on: October 08, 2013, 10 PM »
Anyone following the debacle of the Last Guardian is familiar with the extended hiatus the game has been forced into. It was well known, at the time of conception, that the original Ico was a stress on the PS2's system. The follow up, Shadow of the Colossus, was almost not released on the PS2 due to the strain created on the machine. The result was a version slightly pared down from the original vision (there are rumors of planned additional Colossi, which you can find on several still active SoC forums out there), but still a fantastic game.

So it seems to me that until now, Team Ico has been committed to keeping up with current gen technology for their properties. The Last Guardian (introduced four years ago, in 2009) has become the exception to the rule, as it has all but been confirmed that the game will be released on the upcoming PS4.

Leading me to the point of this topic, to post updates as I see them floating around the internet.

Amusingly, the most recent news for The Last Guardian is... "there is no update!" Apparently, this is news. Thankfully, Shuhei Yoshida all but confirms the PS4 information by refusing to answer which console the game will be on, so in some part, we do have an update.

Obviously for fans of the series, the most promising information is the constant presence of Ueda, who remains involved despite his no-longer-recent departure from the company.

For those of you hearing about Team Ico/SotC, or the Last Guardian today, the first two games are currently available in HD for the PS4. Ico remains one of my favorite games of all time, and the logic in the SotC battles is immensely fun. Ico especially is perfect for the casual gamer, so I strongly recommend it!

For anyone else, what about some speculation? What do you guys think we will see or want to see in this newest installment? Fan theory suggests that Ico and SotC are related due to the presence of godlike creatures and the horned children. Do you think the Last Guardian will strengthen this?

General discussion on any Team Ico games is OK, too!

Hi Kini! Congratulations on making your introduction post - although it's far from the first time we've spoken  :pshyeah:

If it makes you feel any better, I never know what to say to new people, so the welcome area has got to be a sea of confusion, right?

Anyway, hope to see you floating around more often!

Oh, I hear Okami is really neat! I think when it was first released it had a weird tablet thing with it. If I still had a Wii it would definitely be on my to-get list. Visually it looks great :3

Those are both super awesome. The first is the end of novel outfits, right? Would be a travesty not to color both!

Oh, Attack on Titan is very good! I haven't read the manga yet but I really enjoy the anime. The OST is fantastic imo. I've been thinking about reading the manga, but I haven't had the money to pick up any new books lately lol. Hoping they come out with omnibus volumes at some point for us poor people!

Now that I think about it, I don't have any specific tastes in manga. I read whatever's good OTL

Anyway, welcome to the team!
