Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: TV shows axed too soon
« on: August 20, 2015, 09:17:17 PM »
I agree that Hannibal was brilliant. I remember three or so episodes into the show having the thought 'This is so good there's no way it makes it.' It's too cerebral to catch a wide enough audience. I felt the beginning of the current season started to drag a little (especially since the season 2 finale was so frenetic and powerful) but it has started to pick up. For awhile I almost thought they should have just ended it with two. But the Red Dragon arc is excellent.

As a child, I really loved Pirates of Dark Water. I've been thinking of buying the series on Amazon. But I'm a little afraid I will watch it and not like it. That would destroy a little bit of my childhood.  

^ I wish I could be that way (only caring about it a couple weeks till release.) I guess I should look at it as an opportunity to work on a personal flaw. I will say that they can work on it for another ten years if that is what they need to make it great.

I just wish they would get all the head developers together, ask them "So roughly how long guys and gals?", add about 6 months for security padding, and go online and say it will be out in (X) months. I don't like having to look at TBAs. I want dates, even if they are gross overestimations. I kind of like overestimations in release dates because it is a little like being seven, waking up, and your mom going 'We decided to move your birthday up to today!' Part of it is because there is this little guy in me who, every time they release a new trailer thinks 'Maybe they like surprise parties and it is really coming out tomorrow.'

With Persona 5, the little guy is going 'Katsura Hashino knows when it is coming out. He probably has a specific date in his head. He might have had it since before E3.' They keep reiterating 2015, so unless they are intentionally trying to anger people he knows. He is just waiting to unveil it. I know it is silly. 

I understand the need to build up hype for a game from a business perspective. But game companies have become really bad at drawing out the waiting and over speculation. Final Fantasy XV is just a more egregious example. Look at Atlus and Persona 5. Why do we have to wait for D23 (or even later) just to get a definitive answer on when it is coming out? Why post cryptic messages on twitter instead of treating your customers with respect? When you know when it is coming out, why not just tell us? (The obvious answer being that D23 has a bigger audience than just posting it on their website or twitter and it will have a bigger impact....but shush about that)

I understand that game companies want their customers to salivate for their games like Pavlov and his dogs. But I would prefer it if companies didn't announce games until they were 90% complete.

(I know this might be a little ironic being posted on a site dedicated to news about video games. I tried to post it on but they deleted it because it did not pertain to no bake lasagna.)

I liked it. It felt like A FF to me. I enjoyed the demo but it didn't have the scope of a FF (which is understandable but still) so I'm excited.

RPGFan: Site / Mind Zero
« on: July 01, 2015, 03:32:10 AM »

I was wondering if RPGFan posted a review of Mind Zero. I just purchased it in a Flash Sale and I thought I'd check what the reviewers on RPGFan thought of it. I admit it is a little late to look for a review after a purchase. But it was only $10 and I'm impulsive. I looked in the PSP, Vita, and PSN review sections. I can't remember for which one it was made originally. It is possible I missed it. Maybe it was originally titled Brain Null or Cabeza Empty. 

Thank you for your time

My personal wish right now is that they make a Persona offset about people working in an office.
I mean, this whole serie is about insanity and wearing masks... that's like the perfect description of a desk job in a big corporation.

How about in the psychiatric ward of a hospital? If someone went around saying that there were hundreds of persona inside of him and he could get them out by firing a gun at his head ala Persona 3, that is probably where he would end up. The social links would be rather odd though. It would all be nurses, doctors, orderlies, and the mentally ill.

I second (or third or fourth I didn't keep accurate count) that 30 Rock and Always Sunny in Phil. are good. Sunny is rather irreverent if you like irreverent comedies. It gets more so later on. 30 Rock is a mixture of both smart and stupid comedy, but it is a very satisfying mix. It has a lot of word play. They are both on Netflix.

Why is it that when I post it takes me back to the forum main page? I am seriously narcissistic and would prefer to look at my own post.

The flower says 'I think you are super.' However the spear says 'But I just want to be friends'

What about Ni no Kuni? If I'm remembering correctly, the only thing that isn't exactly kid friendly is

Code: [Select]
when he figures out he can't save his mother and what made the White Witch the White Witch.
That is a little sad. I guess it would depend on how mature your child is.

As long as they don't

Code: [Select]
[color=black] have you do the last section 8 times instead of 4  [/color]
I think I'll be happy.

Thank you. That is what I was afraid of. I guess I'll just go ahead and buy it.

Anime, TV, and Movies / A bit of Persona advice.
« on: July 26, 2014, 03:56:42 AM »
Hi. I need help making a buying decision. I am a huge fan of Persona 3 and I was ecstatic when I heard they were making a series of movies for it. However, I am not likely to spend $60 to $80 dollars on a movie. That is especially true if it is an import where I can't even understand the extra features. I assumed that eventually Aniplex would release a real western version that would be cheaper. However it has been a while. Maybe it just feels like a while and I am not remembering correctly. I guess I could be blinded by anime madness.

I don't mind waiting longer to see if it eventually comes out. Yet I am afraid that they will stop selling it and the price will skyrocket. So my question for those of you with history with lesser known Aniplex titles is what do you speculate will happen. I guess the worst thing that could happen is it gets so expensive later I never buy it. So should I wait or just break down and strike up a conversation with the guy who keeps asking to buy my kidney?
