Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

I'll spare you the long, boring story, but I finally got my copy.

Obviously I'm late to the party here. Did anybody translate the menus to English? I couldn't find anything, although admittedly I didn't look super hard.

Re: Xbox 360 online player roundup

I'm thinking we should update this thread (or make a new one) for PSN for... whatever we're calling this new game. Is there a consensus short name yet? "A Certain Magical Virtual On" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

So if I don't currently own a PS4 and don't really have much interest in any games other than this (well, maybe Puyo Puyo Tetris), and I don't have a 4k TV or any plans on getting one, I should just get the cheapest console I can find, right?

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

I'm partial to the Google translation "Affirmed the Butler," myself.

Also, hi guys! If this game turns out to be, like, 80% as good as VOOT, I'll be stoked. Certainly enough to pull me out of video game pseudo-retirement.

Anybody going to MAGFest this year?

February 18-21 this year. I hadn't put any thought into going, but a few days ago I remembered it was coming up, and playing VOOT today for the first time in forever put my brain back in video game mode (I don't play much these days). I went a couple years ago but there was really no VOOT action to ...

Re: 1st Annual Oratan.com Winter Classic

Oh cool, this is as good of a reason as any to get back into VOOT. It has been on the back of my mind for a while but this gives me a little more of a push. I can only imagine how comically bad I am after not playing for years haha. The biggest problem is that there are a lot of people who like Virt...

Re: Xbox 360 online player roundup

I used to mostly play Saturday and Sunday mornings since in my time zone (UTC-05:00) it was nighttime in Japan and there were a decent number of players online. If Japan is still going strong I should be able to do that again at least. I typically didn't have have much luck playing with western play...

Re: Xbox 360 online player roundup

Is VOOT dead? I haven't played in forever (I can only imagine how bad I am these days haha), but I'd kind of like to get back into it. I don't have a Gold account anymore though, and my only reason for getting one would be VOOT, so I don't want to pay for it if I can't realistically get any games in.

Re: Xbox 360 online player roundup

neoKEN, where are you playing Puyo Puyo? I played that game a bunch against the pitiful AI back in the day, but I eventually gave up since you can only get so good playing that way and there was no online play. If there was online play back then I probably would have played the hell out of it. Kind ...

Re: Good Games/ Bad Games Thread

Logged onto XBL to watch Netflix, instead joined a full VOOT party for the first time in... years? I was rusty, and I still suck with twin sticks, but it was fun.

Sorry about my mic, but hey, I never talk much anyway.

Re: Weekly Best of 9 Challenge

Midnight CST is way past my bedtime during the week, but I hope you can get things rolling.

I doubt you'll be able to get PPX. I don't think he plays VOOT anymore, he's in Eastern time, and like me I think he's a cubicle dweller by day, so starting at 1 AM would be brutal.

Re: Xbox 360 player roundup (mid 2013)

When do people play VOOT? I'm rarely on XBL anymore, so I miss out on random games. I'm definitely still interested in playing, though.

Re: DoDonPachi: SaiDaiouJou Kan

Ordinarily I'd be helpful in situations like this, but I've been out of the loop in the shmups world for a while! I was lucky enough to play the PCB of this game last year, and it seemed pretty good. But with shmups it's hard to judge how good they are at first because it takes a while to get the ha...

Re: Getting used to Twin Stick Controls

As far as I know, nobody really uses the twin stick setup on the gamepad, at least for VOOT. I think it's a lot better in theory than it is in practice. As for using real twin sticks, I learned VOOT on a pad, then bought twin sticks like a year and a half later, and never really made a great transit...

Re: MD/DC/VA MagFest - VO:OT & VO:F

We never got the 360s set up, so it was just the DC. It was all the way in the back, literally the furthest TV from either entrance. Old 19" CRT set to split screen. No twin sticks. Not exactly a Kodak moment. :lol: Heiligekuh had his 360 (and modded Saturn sticks) set up by all the HDTVs, but the a...

Re: MD/DC/VA MagFest - VO:OT & VO:F

Well, I have my 360 and twin sticks checked in at the desk. I saw some people playing the DC version throughout the night last night, but they all looked like they were playing for the first time.

Re: MD/DC/VA MagFest - VO:OT & VO:F

I don't have two 360s, but I'll be sure to bring the full network setup and VOOT complement along on Wednesday or Thursday. I can bring my 360 if needed. Unlike the sticks, it'd surely fit in a carry on bag. If possible, would anyone be trying to record these VO matches? If we're using 360s, maybe ...

Re: MD/DC/VA MagFest - VO:OT & VO:F

Yeah I'm taking the shuttle with some guys from Shmups Forum. Apparently the shmup selection won't be what it has been in previous years, but lagless VOOT would make that much less relevant. :)
