Vita Mark II

I didn't get the reference at all. But then I came here and everybody was quite helpful.
thanks, posters.

Also, the whole Hellraiser scene didn't bother me much, I'm alright with that sort of thing; *however*, lacktheknack's avatar (post above mine, page 2) *is* scaring the living heck out of me. I can't stop staring at it : |

*Snide remark to everyone who didn't get the reference*

Sony's new motto?

We Have Such Sights to Show You

I involuntarily screamed as soon as i saw that damn cube. Having it produced by Sony now just made it 300% more Satan.

Renegade-pizza:
I take it this is a Silent Hill reference...Holy hell that was messed up!

That iconography must have some older origin. I recognize it as the interpretation of Hell from the TV show 'Supernatural' as well.

Biodeamon:

-nic. The adjective is Satanic. Now, I know we're talking about ritualistic symbolism concerning the manifestation of evil and I appreciate the gravity of that subject matter, but that is still no excuse for lax grammar.

I hope that it's because people on this forum largely don't like horror films and less about me being old and remembering good, classic horror films (in which case, "you damn kids with your Saws and your Final Destinations!"). While the exact jab the writers were going for may not be 100% clear...the Hellraiser reference is.

I gotta shake my head in disappointment for five minutes.

I think you mean lax grammar. Also, it's Hellraiser. You kids these days.

The reference to the babble the dudes were speaking at the conference made me laugh more than the final joke :p

It was like they were just making words up at one point.

Pretty sad that I've never seen Hellraiser and I still got it >.>

Wow guys, not having seen Hellraiser isn't that big of a deal. It's a pretty terrible franchise.. yesteryear's "Saw". The first film was decent as a concept, but it was just torture-gore stuff. Definitely terrifying, as a concept, rather I'd just read a story for that. As a film franchise though? Eh.

If you haven't seen it, you definitely don't need to shred your nerd/geek/dork credentials, is what I'm trying to say.

Lono Shrugged:
Jesus wept, no one has any taste in movies anymore.

Hellraiser isn't exactly a new movie, chum. It's a touch late to start talking about bad taste in movies.

Also, it really wasn't that great a movie. Utter waste of a really good idea, in fact.

Punch You:

Irridium:
At least someone got this faster than the last time...

*sigh*

I still can't tell the difference between Bladerunner and The Fifth Element.

Blade Runner has Harrison Ford before he was all old and nasty, Fifth Element has Bruce Willis before he was old and nasty. Oh, and Mila Jovovich. No Mila in Blade Runner.

I didn't get the reference (in fact, I thought it reminded me of an '80s Classic Who episode) but that's hardly indicative of much at all. References like this, no matter it being a part of "nerd culture," are becoming harder and harder to get by the vast majority of the audience due to our "nerd culture" branching out in so many directions. In fact, our culture can probably be sub-divided into at least a half-dozen different sub-cultures that all have their own references and in jokes, and there's really no shame in not knowing one or a few. I'm horrible at comics in general, and their immense lore, as well as anything horror related. I didn't get the joke but it doesn't mean I'm bad with the "nerd culture."

OT: The Vita isn't a bad machine and works extremely well (as long as the back touchpad isn't used...). The PS4 scares me more than the Vita ever did.

twm1709:
Yay it only took 3 comments for people to get it :P

My sentiments exactly. :P

Random Argument Man:
I'm sorry to "ruin" your joke, but...there's bad porn?

Yep. In addition to the ones mentioned in Cracked, there's always this (link is to a censored review, so SFW).

I'll take one! Seriously, replicas of that box can go sky high, if you want them made out of wood...

Eternal_Lament:

In all honesty, I would like a Lament Configuration just for myself. Doesn't matter who releases it, Nintendo could put it out for $1000 bucks and I'd still try to get it. I don't care if it will kill me, it's just badass

I bought one for a friend. You can find them at http://www.pyramid-gallery.com/LamentConfig.html . It was pricey but the music was delightfully creepy. Here's what it looks like:

Ideally I would have had it shipped to him from some Middle Eastern country, with a mysteriously charred note attached asking:

What's your pleasure, sir?

All I could think of was:
*deep voice* "Time...to play.

I suddenly feel older. And sadder. Why?

Dr.Susse:
Does no one like the vita?

Nah I understand the teasing and what's wrong with it. I'm still hopeful that it'll turn around and have a good run and for me it already has. (Where I live we didn't really get much Psp games and I missed a lot of really good Ps1 stuff so as a retro man I'm happy with the vita)

THIS IS A JOKE: And being a fanboy I forgot to say that Grey should get a job at Kotaku; His writing would really be appreciated there.

I like cracking jokes at vita, as I own one myself. Although I don't regret having one. Soul Sacrifice, Tear away, Ys and VK3 coming this year is enough to make me a happy person (plus with probably some ports i'll still be able to enjoy, and I still have to explore some ps1 and psp games)

There certainly are a lot of Ps1 and psp stuff to get through; the Ys game should be good too.

We finally got Ys 7 on the Australian Psn the other day so I can get into ys games for the first time now.

The old games are some of the best for it, been playing the crap out of things like G-Police I played back in the 90s. They look pretty good on a small screen, if you get an old PSX or PS2 and play these games they look like crap with low res and no HDMI output on modern TVs. I don't mind getting old consoles out but finding room for an oldschool TV or something is a stretch to far.

Edit,

I didn't get the Hellraiser reference either, never watched them. Or many "classic" 80s/90s horror like Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm street, random horror gore movies don't appeal to me much.
