With the Summer of Smash II concluded, Lusipurr is freshly returned from playing two of the resulting victors: Banjo-Kazooie and Superman. Imitanis, SiliconNooB, and Adeki join him for a discussion of Cricket, Anime, and Video Game news.


  1. Adeki: “I’m not going to disagree with Penguin from about a year ago.” Well-timed zinger there.

    Has anybody seen the crappy-looking mobile graphics on the Japanese Dragon Quest 3DS ports? It’s like they took the Super Famicom versions, which looked great, and made them worse just to ruin a good thing. I’m still looking forward to DQ XI, but giving up on caring about I – III coming westwards.

  2. I will say the iOS versions of Dragon Quest I-III are actually pretty excellent for mobile games. Funny how Square-Enix knew to a certain degree how to properly port games to mobile with DQ I-III but completely messed up the Final Fantasy VI re-release there.

  3. @Tanzenmatt: They’re not too bad actually, although they are affected somewhat by some poor scaling choices (non-linear with no aliasing options). However, having played the mobile versions pretty extensively, I can add that I stopped noticing within the first minute or two. Pixel graphics have a way of sorting themselves in the viewer’s beholding once one looks at them for long enough.

    @ST: They are! I hate, hate, HATE mobile games, but even I like DQ 1-2-3 on mobile. However, I would like them a GREAT deal more with proper controls on a 3DS.
    Meanwhile, FF6 still looks utterly weird and incongruous (I have learned, since we last discussed this, that this is due to the character sprites having a much lower base pixel density (before compression) than the actual in game artwork, which is why they look very fuzzy and lo-fidelity compared to the environments).

  4. Traps traps traps traps traps traps everybody!!!! Sad to say there is going to be some old pervert see the stream of adeki modeling the female Japanese outfits and will get aroused. Expect an email, a phone call or a knock on your door from some creep. Or maybe they will offer you a very lucrative job to do very shameful things, like the gimp from pulp fiction.
