Yeah, try the clean install "reset this PC" option they give you that lets you rewrite Windows over itself, easiest way to do a clean install if you need to.

At that point if it's still not working there's gotta be some hard fault somewhere.

Objectively, I don't think that's a good idea. I get the feeling after getting thrashed, Mexico, spitting blood from his mouth, would mutter something adorable like "ice cream man" and just get his teeth fudging kicked in. And I abhor violence.

Not saying I wouldn't watch the fight, mind you.

Yeah, system restore is garbage now, when something's broken it never works. Hard backups are about the only surefire way to get back to a working state.

I don't suppose it behaves any differently off the dock as it does on it?

It's the only reason it sold as well as it did. They knew. raspberry

They saw the memes with the basement weaboos slapping their clammy phalluses on the back touch panel of the Vita and it hit them like a bolt of electricity. "...Hey. HEY, WAIT."

Luckily I never owned the weeb system when that crap hit. Never played on Vita TV in the US so I was spared.

Some prices dunked, some items added. Lots of time wastes so far but no sales other than a criminally underpriced Everdrive! frown

If you're interested in more than one thing, feel free to throw me an offer, I'm open to deal a bit. I'm just not looking to do B1G1.

I was tempted to preorder, but I held back, because as much as I wanted to support Ys, I wanted to support a good Ys, and I wasn't seeing any signs that this was gonna be a home run. I super lucked out, turns out, since the PC version got held back for [reasons unknown]

Most games are developed from the ceiling down, so lesser platforms get downscaled performance and details so the greater platform doesn't suffer. In this case, to save money, they started with Vita and scaled up. It's okay... if you're not charging $60.

It was NW's own fudging fault for filtering all his URLs to redirect to Dildophile.com. Did he think there would be no consequences, or that this wasn't an option?

He makes okay music, it's not great and it's not awful. Like most stuff they promote on the radio I can find a tune or two I enjoy. There was a WIP version of Love Lockdown that I really liked but I think they fudgeed it up in post once the album released, the single track's still messed up in the chorus to me as well. I listened to that a lot when I first moved to Indy, real intense beat and callbacks that I liked. To me my enjoyment of his music is slightly offset by the way he presents to us how he thinks of himself, but that could all be for show too for all I know, so whatever. It's (usually) easy to ignore.

And as much as the haters hesitate to admit, anyone who "makes it" is enormously talented, or else nobody would listen to them. See Jimmy Eat World.

He said he was gonna make a Turbografx album! Everyone in the Obey community was super salty about it and wanted him to stay away, I wanted to hear what he was gonna make. Iunno if he ended up ditching that concept, I think it coulda been cool.

The left has a serious issue with differing opinions (we all often do, we conveniently forget it when pointing out the other side's failures). It's unfortunate that he can't retweet something without half of America jumping down his pants and frothing about it. But on the flip side, as you and I are both VERY aware of seeing extremely frequently, when we see these same public figures voicing and retweeting LEFT ideologies, what's the go-to response from the right? "Shut up and stick to entertainment/play the game/nobody cares what you think politically/you're just here to make us happy so spare us the liberal brainwashing". And just like we're seeing with the MSM, news outlets pick up that slant and attack these entertainers when they aren't being agreeable, too...

And Kanye's more than a bit erratic imo. Just for the record. raspberry

I don't know what "a bit erratic" looks like to compare it to, but Kanye's fudgein' weird man. Which is fine.

I'm pretty sure the majority of the US, yourself included, already thought Kanye was off his rocker. The Rap God mentality's more than worn out at this point. Bit disingenuous to assert we're treating him any differently now than when he freaked out at the VMAs, he's always been under the microscope. Honestly this is just him hyping up whatever he's about to release, and he's said as much in talks with radio personalities. Drama sells, that's why he said what he said when he said it.

tldr; It's a PR stunt, MSM bit as it is wont to do, they're being played by the Greatest Rapper of All Time

He lives in a weird fudging place disassociated from reality from the rest of us. With the Kardashians. I wouldn't go so far as to say everything being said but he's certainly BEEN out there.

Nightwolve disagrees heartily! If they go back to Xseed he's gonna flip out again. But if this is the best NIS America can do with one of the most revered ARPGs from Japan, they need to stay the fudge away.

Games that look better than this that were produced for lesser systems than the PS4 from 2011. I'll even stay in the same country: Dark Souls, Bayonetta, Dragon's Dogma, or maybe I can say games that make up for poor visuals with stylistic choices that benefit the low design threshold, like Valkyria Chronicles. You're focusing on the characters and ignoring everything else, I think, because that environment would look okay on a Vita screen, but looks awful on anything larger than that. I'd certainly understand the argument the environments are somewhat closer to that of Ys 6, which was from 2003. They're not flat-out comparable, but they're certainly trending in that direction comparatively.

Even if we're holding the bar at 2011, I'd expect a bit better from a game developed no less than seven years later.

Now, if you're comparing this to, say, Tales games, sure, this looks better, but Tales haven't ever really been the bastion of visual clarity. But then again...

Falcom doesn't have any higher-end games, Ys is their crown jewel. This gets the height of their production values. And again, porting Vita to PS4, I can understand there will be some graphical issues because Vita's a steaming pile of crap system that only the worst weebs on the site enjoy, but I'd expect them to fix the framerate issues (they didn't) and to touch up the environs a bit more than they did. They basically upscaled the models and called it good. I'd also expect a game that's being conservative on its funds to not be charging $60 out the door for a product that with very minor revisions could easily have been on the last gen. You don't see me doging about Shovel Knight being $15, do you?

If we're spoiled it's because we expect a bit more effort than a minimalist port job from a portable for our $200-400 game consoles. When FROM ported Dark Souls to PC, they flat out said "We've never done this and it's gonna be crap, but we're doing it because you want it, just don't expect much." And they charged $20 less than full retail. Durante came in, showed us how to give it proper scaling resolutions and fixed the frame rate. I'm assuming NIS America figured he'd just fix their game post for them. I believe he was in talks with them during development, but if it released in this state they probably offered him nothing to fix the game and he laughed his way out the door. If that's the case, you can probably kiss any immediate patch jobs for this game goodbye until it's in the bargain bin. As long as this was delayed for PC, I expected a fully working thing that wasn't broken, and that's not even remotely the case. Short of recompiling the machine translation for text, I couldn't tell you what they did.

Like, I LOVE Ys. But Gypsy is right, this game looks like dogcrap. And he didn't even get into the SEVERE frame hitching when stuff gets even moderately busy on screen.
