FF14 will fail. If they didn't spend so much time developing for that fail of a franchise FF13 and FF13-2, we would have gotten the more anticipated FF VS 13. How long has it been now?

The first trailer of Versus was back in 2006. Good lord...

Nomura better make this the best game ever created.

@melonbarmonster

It's all an act. The nationalistic posters here just wear their goggles and fail to see what the rest of the world sees.

"Bu bu bu but, why don't they meet with him. They have nothing to lose! =3"

If anyone with an ounce of self respect started insulting you like that, you would be a fool to go and meet him. Especially if you know the idiot does not even mean it.

The level of common sense in this thread makes me lol hard.

Hashimoto already said it''s not to justify. The newspapers and even the reporters on Canadian TV mentioned this. It's the way that he just brings up other countries and tries to compare Japan's atrocities to others and being contradictory to his original defense that it's not to justify. It's even more insulting cuz none of the Allied powers crimes had ever committed crimes of Japan's caliber in WW2. Add into the fact that Japan lost the war as an aggressor and it pissed off everyone.

@nigelboy

You didn't read my post properly and posted something irrelevant again. You said western media didn't explain it properly. Yes they did. They did mention Hashimoto saying it's not right.

You fail to understand why the rest of the world is looking with disgust.

Yet you don't mention Nintendo... who's been in this business the longest. I lol whenever fanboys look at Nintendo as something kiddy. Gaming itself is a hobby meant for all ages.

I feel sorry for the people that have to play games like Gears of War or Resistance to feel better about themselves. I will be enjoying my Mario, Zelda and Metroid. Nintendo is long overdue for a F Zero game.

Online wise, I'll be continuing my journey in Guild Wars 2 and soon to be Blade & Soul. Diablo 3 was a huge disappointment.

@nigelboy

You quoted sankei news. Your argument is invalid. Don't you have better things to do than post irrelevant news? Like post on 2ch?

Anyway, there is no such thing as korea sympathizing japanese cities and vice versa. Any sympathizers are little groups of people that happen to be out of the general public opinion. Even my wife backs me on this and she lived in Tokyo for most of her life.

Inferiority complex is the correct term. I beg to differ. Go on youtube and it's pretty obvious. Every time I watch asian videos. There are always japanese uyoku just defiling the comments. Same goes for the Chinese. You barely see koreans commenting on japanese videos. Keep in mind, these are non political videos. Just random videos.

@caffeinebuzz - it's not exclusive to Japan. You can say the same for China and Korea. Their work places are strict and it's frowned upon to take vacation.

My wife used to work in Japan and she ended up working alot of overtime which was unpaid. I worked in Korea and HK occassionally as I move back and forth between Asia and North America and it was the same.

Every resident should be given some sort of compensation. Was it their fault? The government was negligent and it destroyed people's livelihoods.

It doesn't have to be a monetary compensation. Where is our money being used if not for the people affected? Oh right. Whale hunts.

The japanese government should be all tried for treason.

Nintendo was never about graphics. I am a loyal fan of nintendo from Miyamoto's first party games. Xbox 360 ruined video games? Can't the japanese ever claim responsibility?

Have you played the latest Tales of Xillia, Vesperia? All of them were riddled with dlc. That was Namco's fault. Not microsoft's.

Capcom's practice of releasing the same game over and over again with minimal upgrades is also disgusting. What japanese game compares with Elder Scrolls Skyrim? Fallout 3? GTA 4 and soon to be 5?

Western games have been skyrocketing in quality. There are very few japanese devs that are worthy of being called a game developer.

Posted in: Chinese general says Ryukyu islands do not belong to Japan See in context

It's true what the chinese general says. Okinawa or its true name the Ryukyu islands does not and has never belonged to Japan. Okinawa is unfortunately cannot be entirely blamed on Japan. The Allies just stood there and did nothing. We are just as much at fault.

However, it doesn't excuse China of trying to assimilate the rest of Asia. Their claims are almost ridiculous and numerous that I lost count. The ones off the top of my head,

China's claims are Taiwan, Diaoyu islands, All of the South China sea, All of the sea between Korea's Leodo island including Leodo island itself, Tibet, Mongolia, the list goes on.

Posted in: Defiant Hashimoto says U.S. troops abused women during occupation See in context

Japan forgets its place.

Japan lost the war.

Japan's current status is purely from Americans giving them free tech and the 100 of billions of gold Japan stole from its asian neighbors. Japan owes everything to Asia. Asia owes Japan nothing.

3.The allied powers never used civilian masses for sexual slavery.

If US was truly fair in its judgment, Japan would be in the same level of poverty as North Korea and on top of that they would be a divided country. Japan shouldn't be complaining.

Posted in: Hashimoto says S Korean troops guilty of wartime sex abuse See in context

I fail to see the comparison. Yes all of them were bad. But none of the other countries he mentionned deny it. Japan is the one denying it. And nowhere did the allies ever mobilize masses of women for sexual slavery.

Seriously, he reminds of those japanese uyoku on Youtube. Taking pride in their atrocities but when criticized they always bring up some irrelevant incidents like the dictators Park Chung Hee, Mao, and Kim Jong Il. They also start arguing and justifying that it's somehow ok since the British and Americans have done it in the past.

What kind of corrupted mindset is this? I will laugh when a rapist uses this excuse in court.

I thought I haven't seen how low the world could go after Japan started criticizing countries for donating too little to their earthquake. But this and how sex slaves were "necessary" just takes the cake.

Posted in: Hashimoto offers to meet 'comfort women' to apologize See in context

There is no debate. The international community laughs at Japan's stance that comfort women were mere prostitutes. They were forced into sexual slavery. Abe's careless remarks about there being no invasion of Asia is more icing on the cake.

I would love to see the dutch's opinion on this. In japanese nationalist eyes, everything that doesn't agree with Japan is fake and made up.

What a joke. P.O.Ws all noted the cruelty of the japanese. Even my grandfather noted that they were using cheap shots. No surprise considering they faked surrender and taped their guns to their shoulders.

Quite easy to deny when you killed most of them eh? Th fact that claims made by japanese soldiers and comfort women were thrown out the window. I really couldn't care less. The japanese are proud of their short history of having some sort of power. Their current attitude is beyond disgusting. Ironically the aggressor nation at the time, Japan finds that a few decades is enough to lecture their east asian neighbors. Considering who was the invader for most of their history. I smell hypocrisy. It hasn't even been a century and Japan wants its neighbors to get over it? Childish things such as taking back apologies (I used to do this... in kindergarten). Good luck with that Japan. The problem is going to get worse.

Japan is counting on one thing which is for all the scarred women to die off.

melonbarmonster- i couldn't disagree more. Sony Xperia is better than HTC products. HTC is the definition of inferiority. ALl of their previous products is an indication. HTC puts a shiny coating but has no build quality. The same crap quality you would find in Acer.

Sony is proven. Samsung is proven. LG is proven. Apple is proven. HTC is inferior. If anything, Apple and Sammy are on top with LG below that. Insinuating that Sony products are worse than HTC products is laughable at best.

Anyway, comfort women are dying out. A huge majority of them died in the war so they never knew love and companionship. The japanese were thorough in making sure pregnancy was averted through abortion through physical abuse. With whatever women were left after the brutality, a majority of women were left infertile from the constant abortions.

In the Phillipines, women were raped in front of their families before being killed off. Are you gonna accuse the people of the Phillipines of lying as well?

How about the dutch women that were raped? Liars as well?

A sheep like mentality is always a recipe for disaster.

When one's livelyhood is being threatened.. or in this case Hashimoto losing his paycheck, he cracks under his so called "beliefs".

I would have respected him if he actually stood his stance. True, that would mean he's a savage beast that justifies rape.

But now we know him as a savage beast that justifies rape... and he's a tool.

Posted in: Gov't - but not Ishihara - backs away from Hashimoto's comfort women comments See in context

We went from blatant denial of history to justification of rape and torture? Is this guy even human? Absolutely disgusting as well as some of the japanese comments.

Some japanese people are actually defending him saying "well, the americans done it too". I'm sorry, that's no justification for rape.

Really tells you something about an individual when they justify rape just cuz it happened elsewhere. Implying men are not able to control their urges is laughable at best. How do people ever survive puberty without going to jail for rape? /sarcasm

Yes the Allied powers weren't saints either. But never did they abduct women and force them to have sex with that many soldiers. Nationalists discount proof from japanese soldiers and victims and keep asking for "proof".

Where is the proof behind Japan's claim that the treasures from the Korean peninsula and China were actually gifts and not pillaged? Japan's being a hypocrite... but that wasn't a surprise... especially with the idiots that run the country.

Lol out of all numbers to pick. Japan knew Korea would bite. Hook line and sinker.

The childish antics of Japan are getting to be sad. When will the idiocy stop. I'll say this again, politicians are truly the scum of the scum.

I find that east asians tend to think alike in terms of these small details. Japan knows how Korea and China thinks as well as vice versa. But it's not surprising from Abe who asks for better relations but tries to disputes territories that were never Japan's to begin with.
