I didn't manage to get far enough in Aion before I got bored of it so no review of it from me. I just gave up on it. Instead I started playing Mana Khemia 2 for the PS2 and since I haven't done any reviews in a while I decided to do this one because its at least a game I'm interested in.
Many years (10-15 at least) have passed since the first Mana Khemia. Alchemy is in decline and the school Al-Revis has converted into a traditional school rather than stay as an elite school of alchemists. Tony and Flay from the first game have become teachers of alchemy in the school. The story itself is divided into 3 parts the first 2 can be played in either order through Raze (not his full name) and Ulrika (I might have mispelled this one). Only after completing the first 2 is the 3rd one available. The first 2 show opposite sides of events occuring at about the same time and the 3rd part is more or less the conclusion where everyone comes together.
This game is on a PS2
While the topic of same-sex marriage seems like it has no place or purpose within the confines of a kid-friendly MMORPG, the world of MMO gaming was changed when it was publicly announced that Dream of Mirror Online would include same-sex marriage options for players. Other MMOs offer similar features but without the actual wedding process.
Cinemablend.com had an interview with the Project Manager for Tales of Pirates, Neil Chan and mentioned this gay marriage subject months ago, the answer was no and a debate started. According to their upcoming interview they had with the manager, it was revealed that some measure of progress is being made and that the topic is still being debated.
Here are some quotes:
Here at TOP we don’t discourage discussion of the subject, in fact since the story broke we’ve been actively encouraging our players to share their feelings and opinions about it. Since we put out the call for our players to weigh in and help us decide, the debate has been split almost 50/50, and the debate is just heating up
How do you guys look at same-sex marriage in game? Could it gain any chances to be as normal as it is in real life? Read

Wired's latest interview with Blizzard COO, Paul Sams has delivered some information that the firm's top-secret MMO project will really be something, but it will not replace current the most successful MMORPG World of Warcraft, and will give "an game experience unlike anything done before."
"I think the game is going to be significantly differentiated enough [from WoW], such that, you're not going to feel like they're one in the same resulting in that you have to pick or choose," Sams said. "My feeling is that they're distinct enough to where you're going to say, 'Okay, I have all my friends over here. I dig this, I have a lot of time and energy in this, I've got these characters and my guild, and this that and the other.' So I have connectivity there, and I want to continue that connectivity. But man, I think, 'Well, this is awesome, and I want to go check this out too.'
"And so maybe they'll split a little over time, or maybe they'll decide they don't want to play WoW anymore, and they'll go and play this other thing. That's a high-class problem to have. As long as those folks are

They are a group of people on the internet that think they are superior to everyone else in the world.
If you often go on youtube or any other site with a huge audience, you always see other people attacking other people's opinions and truth. Really though, it people's own opinions and we really don't need dumbasses ruining that and hurting people's feelings.
Like for example, today, I posted a comment on a video where the girl was like a teen, from like 14-17 years old and another poster says she was 12.
Well I just corrected him and this flamer/troller said something in return.
"... lol? woah kid, did I insult your fantasy gf there, btw 12 was an obvious exaggeration, dumb shit! Jokes are wasted on you.. Little kids like you should spend more time educating yourself rather than defending your adolescent testosterone driven fantasies :) "
See? Comments like this pisses me off. Commentors like these tells kids to go back to school. But when I checked out their channel, they still play games and judging from the games the play, they were a kid still. And telling others about testosterone driven fantasties. That was really a hypercritical thing this dumb ass sai
Maybe you will never see anything like this in the future, who knows

The debate over graphic Japanese sex games such as the disgusting and controversial RapeLay continues with word that the United Nations is stepping in.
At a meeting earlier this month, the U.N.'s Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women called for a ban on explicit video games and anime. As reported by Anime News Network, the committee urged Japan to ban "the sale of video games or cartoons involving rape and sexual violence against women which normalize and promote sexual violence against women and girls."
The committee also expressed concern "at the normalization of sexual violence in the State party as reflected by the prevalence of pornographic video games and cartoons featuring rape, gang rape, stalking and the sexual molestation of woman and girls."
For the sake of Otakus, no comment...

Mass Effect is a sophisticated, acclaimed video game. It took uninformed flak for its sex scene, which gamers defended as a mature portrayal of the act. But it's not that different from the depiction of sex in many other games.
Video games, on the whole, perpetuate a transactional model of sex, argues Alex Raymond at GameCritics.com. When you think about it, pursuing sex with an NPC in Mass Effect, however tastefully it was shown, is fundamentally no different from C.J. bedding women in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Sex is presented as a reward, a result only, something won only by making correct choices attenuated to a woman's shallow preferences, and it's certainly not shown to be part of the process of a relationship.
The "Ladies Man" achievement in the upcoming Alpha Protocol spy action game - have sex with every woman in the game - really set Raymond's teeth on edge. This essay focuses not on sex objects, but on sex as an object - a goal only, a commodity, and the damage done by video games reinforcing such concepts.
Update: The first two paragraphs, while based in my analysis, were edited so as not to misrepresent the author's opinion of Mass Effect.
Within months we have heard a lot of news about Real Gundam. Here we've got a Gundam wedding ceremony. Let's check it out.
Heres comes the bride. And the giant mecha.
Earlier this week, Japanese wedding planner T&G planned wedding ceremony for one lucky couple, selected from 548 entries last month.
The two were married previously and stated that the Gundam series had been a tremendous influence in their lives. They even named they're new baby girl after Gundam character Seira. The groom is even dressed as Ray Amuro!
The Director of the Gundam also put in an appearance to give the happy couple a special gift.
A 18-meter-tall (59-foot-tall) RX-78 was erected to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the mecha anime/manga/toy/video game franchise.
It is part of the "Mobile Suit Gundam 30th Anniversary Project," and the temporary structure in Odaiba's Shiokaze Park was built from fiberglass-reinforced plastic over a steel frame and coated in a layer of awesomeness
Fifty points on the Gundam statue emit light, and mist shoot out of 14 different points on the statue. The 1/1 scale Gundam boasts a movable head and a continuous stream of oh-man-this-is-so-damn-cool. [kotaku
MMORPG developers have gotten way too lazy when it comes to designing quests. Almost every single quest in any MMORPG involves either role playing as a FedEx driver [Take this item and give it to an NPC named John Thunderhoof across town!] or a genocidal maniac [Kill 50 Baby Gnolls, 20 Mother Gnolls and 10 Gnoll Brutes]. Personally, kill quests in MMORPGs are an excellent distraction from mindless grinding, but I feel that quests should add a little more variety to the game. MMORPGs like Runes of Magic, Fiesta Online and WindSlayer are genuinely good games, but they have rather dull quests. To be fair though, 95% of MMORPGs have this same issue, I just used the three games mentioned as examples.
There’s nothing wrong with delivery and kill quests, but there’s no excuse for developers to use only these kinds of quests. Games like MapleStory and Dragonica Online for example, really take questing to the next level because they have a lot of unique quests. MapleStory has a boat load of ‘plat forming’ quests which require players to make it from one end of the screen to the other by dodging obstacles, sort of like a stage in Super Mario. Keep in
When I was reading a news from Gamepolitics that "A 17 year old student detonated two pipe bombs in a San Mateo, California high school on Monday before being subdued by faculty members", I just though of Zoey, the only and last beautiful thing over the whole disgusting zombie apocalypse of Left 4 Dead. As the picture I captured shows, she is throwing a pipe bomb.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the boy was wearing a bulletproof vest and was armed with an additional eight pipe bombs, a two-foot long sword and a chainsaw. Police said that the student planned to set off the bombs and then attack survivors with the other weapons.
Gadget blog Gizmodo wonders whether there may have been a video game connection:
If you're wondering why this is on Gizmodo—and you guys always do—it's because those weapons inherently remind me of movie and video game weapons. I'm not trying to say that video games cause violence or don't cause violence, but what I'm saying is that when a 17 year old man-child thinks he can corner his classmates while dual wielding a chainsaw and a sword probably played a lot of doom and zelda and didn't do very well in gym c
