Persona Dancing, Animation and Mobile App Gaming News

What is the news about Persona?

Persona is considered one of the best rpg series ever made. I like to share some news on Persona in general. Atlus might couple of announcements what is coming up in Persona games.  There are a total of four news about Persona. Here is  some news about BlazBlue: Cross Tag.

In BlazBlue: Cross Tag, Persona 4 Kanji Tatsumi is confirmed along with Blazblue’s Platinum the Trinity and Under In-Birth’s Orie.  There are DLC character not on the disc. Kanji got all of his moves from Persona 4 Arena. Let talk about DLC practices of Arc System Works  for  Blazblue Cross Tag. I am disappoint in Arc System Works because of this.  Producer Toshimichi Mori thinks DLC helps developers not to go bankrupt but without support how will they continue.  BlazBlue: Cross Tag Deluxe and Digital Edition  is $69.99 including all DLC characters. Individual characters pack is $4.99 but first is free. Cross Tag Character Collection price is 19.99 but all together is $100. Which is very expensive in my book and make sure to look out for more BlazBlue: Cross Tag announcements soon.

My Gaming Setup and Equipment Recommendations for Content Creator

Why do you need gaming equipment?

If you want to be a content creator. You got to have the right gaming equipment to suit your needs. My gaming setup is for making content on Twitch and YouTube. I had to invest some funds in order buy equipment for my brand. Having an expansive gaming setup gives players innovation experience. In live streams or YouTube gaming videos, viewers will see creators and streamers with top of the line products. Amazon is the best to get gaming gear from companies such as Logitech, NETGEAR and Turtle Beach. Gaming chairs, headsets and gaming PC could get the job done. Notice, some Twitch streamers have donation widget on the panel or overlay. Streamers want viewers to donate and giving them the ultimate experience. For example, money to buy a new computer to replace old.


What about getting a gaming chair and going to TwitchCon? Does that sound greedy to anyone? I understand that times are rough to make ends need. Some streamers are not full-time but part-time having employment. I have an advice “invest in your money” meaning pay bills and don’t buy unnecessary things. It nothing wrong it having a donation button or widget but don’t scam people. Most definitely don’t beg for money online and get a job. Charities is perfectly fine and doing some positive for the community. That being said, here is my gaming setup and products to get started.

Why Kajan is not paid?

In a interview on BloodyElbow, Kajan Johnson express his concern about EA paying him.  He helped EA with motion capture for many characters. Other fighter were paid compensation  instead of him.  I understand video game company have to ask permission to used their likeness. Kajan also have a problem with UFC. Due to promotion and adversting EA’s UFC game. He feels that he is not making any money from promoting for companies.

 

Kajan stated “I think it’s disgraceful, actually. I think it’s insane”. “I don’t understand how we’re supposed to be such a forward-thinking society”. EA wanted to use popular fighter to promote but get little to nothing.  He Kajan goes on thinking big corporations like EA exploit people for promotions. For example, Youtube some companies contact huge content creators for sponsorship because how many subscribers.  These Youtubers want to be paid because they’re promoting your brand.

Eroticism in Video Games Industry and Character Analysis

Video games can be fun to play with memorable characters and story telling. The debate whether eroticism play a role in video games. SJW (social justice warrior) target video games that portray with women like a sex symbols. I understand eroticism but some people don’t want see gender or race being portrayed in a negative way. There are some single men and women who love fictional characters in video games. Look at Otaku culture, there is a term called Waifu. Waifu is a real life person fantasize 2D fictional characters to think of marriage or girlfriend. Some Otakus don’t like 3D non-fictional men and women because of being rejected and not fitting in. That’s just my opinion on the matter and myself I get look down by women sometimes.

 

Eroticism In video game and character analysis


I also have waifus (I can’t share that with you guys) but not all 3D non-fictional women are not bad. There penalty of fish in the sea, otakus wants an ideal men and women to be in a relationship. People have preferences on what type of men and women they want. Some video games characters does have ideal personality that a real life people has. Gamers look at that character see what type of person they like. Is the character strong, easygoing, arrogant, cheerful, caring and annoying? That’s the question what is on gamers minds. What about the characters look? What about the character’s body type, stylish hair color, revealing outfits and charm point? I will give some analysis on some characters in video games that face criticism.

First off, is the character from Tomb Raider Lara Croft. Lara is an archeologist finding hidden treasure about the world. Her early character design is brown shorts and tank top. Later her design change due to backlash from critics. Lara was in bikinis and revealing cocktail dresses in Play’s Girls of Gaming. Tomb Raider: Underworld’s creative director Eric Lindstrom felt those sexy poses was out of character. A PlayStation Magazine comment on whether Lara Croft is a role model for young role or embodiment of male fantasy. Later added, the character does attract female demographics but mainly design for males. Mark Cohen differs that erotic characters doesn’t make the game sale but content value.
