    Onomichi is great! I lived for years in Hiroshima, and we made it down to Onomichi for a festival once or twice a year. It's a beautiful small town, especially the Temple Walk.

    Having a Yakuza game set there really makes me want to get into the Yakuza series...

    I feel like Emon's appearance emphasized the moral dimension of the story. Part of the feel of the game is wondering whether Wander is doing the right thing. The colossi aren't hostile until disturbed, and it's not clear that resurrecting Mono is the best course of action or just Wander's obsession. Emon bursting in at the end really parallels the RPG trope of the heroes appearing just as the villain attempts to complete some terrible ritual performed at great cost--like, the deaths of a dozen unique and beautiful beings--and stopping him in the nick of time.

    @VotesForCows Usenet was often just as bad or worse than modern online communities, at least in some places. It was just a lot slower.

    Now I'm really curious to find out what Nadia's secret mission was!

    I will say that while Super Potato is indeed overpriced on games, they have some cute plushies for reasonable prices. We have a winged goomba in our kitchen thanks to our last trip to Japan.

    Onomichi‽ Oh that really makes me want to play. That was about two hours from where I lived.

    And that mascot makes me miss Onomichi ramen

    Thank you for using the word racist in the headline.
    @UnskippableCutscene Nah, it's absolutely the correct word. From housing discrimination in the 70s to continued rants about the Central Park Five to calling Mexicans rapists and wanting to ban Muslims, Trump's racism is probably the most consistent intellectual position he's held.

    The thing Fourfoldroot didn't bring up is that Haiti didn't spring forth fully-formed as inferior to America, it was shunned internationally for being a free black republic and trade was only opened up after it paid reparations to France for daring to deprive them of their "property" (through a slave revolt). America invaded Haiti in 1915 and didn't leave into the 30s, and we invaded again in 1994. The defense of Trump's remarks that some countries just have worse quality of life than others ignores the history of why that's the case.Edited 2 times. Last edited January 2018 by Unknown

    I played this for the first time while I was living in Japan.

    To say I am massively hyped for this would be an understatement.
