Lusi and the Tits once again convene to discuss the latest hat-related news in gaming. This week, Bobby Kotick charges for hats, Jonathan Blow designs hat-based islands, and Nippon Ichi Software develops a hat strategy game set in the Netherworld.


  1. While most of their handheld releases are cheaper than market, most of NISA’s games on console do come out at $60. Hyperdimension Neptunia is $58 on Amazon, same with Ar Tonelico Qoga. I wouldn’t be surprised if Disgaea 4 is around $60 as well when it comes out. Disgaea 4 is supposed to have much cleaner 2-D sprites with better backgrounds again. Part of the reason that a lot of people don’t buy strategy RPGs, and many who do don’t know NIS America exists. They don’t have the advertising budget that larger publishers do; so a lot of their games suffer from lack of exposure.

    I have to agree with Lusi, Kotick is going to try to drain CoD dry in a very short amount of time. However, I’d say that a lot of CoD players are not discerning enough to care, and they will just happily play along. Thus, in the end, it will take a LOT longer to come to the same fate as Guitar Hero because there are far more CoD players to regularly drain money from.

    That Master’s project sounds almost as awesome as mine. :)

    Now back to my Tenga Flipotato.

  2. -Ginia has crazy eyes, the spruces is Disgaea 4 are a clear upgrade to previous games in the series.

    – Oliver will buy every map for $15.

    -Assured of their own brilliance? So completely unlike SE then?

    -Lusipurr … You censor Lady Gaga news and then allow Ginia to wax lyrical about the Sims, why?

    -Hey, why don’t I get invited to these group masturbation sessions?! DX

  3. *Autocorrect fail: I wrote the sprites in Disgaea 4 are a clear upgrade. Grrrrrrrr.

  4. I have to say, I look forward to the day when Activision squeezes the life blood out of Call of Duty and I stop hearing about it.
