I backed this and everybody who doesn't choose E is a terrible person.

Replaying Final Fantasy 9 has reminded me of these great tracks:

Guilty pleasures are guilty for a multitude of reasons.  Some people may love a show, but be hush-hush about it because they may not want to be associated with that particular fanbase.  Or maybe they have a reputation for being intellectual or whatnot, and feel like enjoying a "fluff" show kinda goes against who/what they're supposed to be.  Or maybe a show is targeted at a particular demographic, and we enjoy it despite being far removed from that demographic.  For example, adult males who enjoy Sailor Moon- a show whose main demographic is 6-12 year-old girls. 

Like I said, my guilty pleasure anime/manga is not popular or really very good.  You could name a ton of examples in its genre that are MUCH better.  But somehow it strikes a chord with me and I love it. 

It's almost like with dating.  Don't you hear stories all the time from people who are conflicted because they're in a relationship with someone who's completely not their type/ pretty much the opposite of what they usually date but are genuinely happy?  You think, as an outsider, that there should be no conflict.  If you're happy, be happy.  Like what you like.  But sometimes, you feel like you have to justify liking what you like, whether it's to yourself or others.  You know? 

That's a very astute observation there, Dincrest. I really liked the analogy at the end. Kudos to you man!

Picked The Last of Us back up and finished it. I was about 2/3 through summer when I stopped, and I did the rest in the past few days. This fucking game, I swear. I pretty much loved everything about it, from the music, the set pieces, the voice acting, the various themes in the storyline and the little details. But fuck, that game is emotionally intense, so I aint touching it again for a while.

In the mean time, I'm going for more light hearted fare with FF9. I already almost lost my shit over that damn jump roping mini-game.

Parks and Recreation was great, glad to see it back. Amy Poehler's chemistry with just about every other actor on the show helps make the show for me and I was grinning like an idiot near the end when I saw Leslie's reaction to April's letter.

I watched the remake of The Evil Dead again.

I have to say I liked it more the second time around. I have to agree with Joey Comeau's assessment of it; the movie is bloody and brutal but it's to an extreme that it's almost ridiculous. There's even some subtle dark humor in there as well, I mean
Code:
all the beatings Eric takes and still keeps going? It's like the movie knows that the viewer believes its all his fault and is giving him his comeuppance. Also, the way Mia has to tear her hand off? It's so brutal that it's almost comical.

I'm really interested to see what they would do with a sequel, and if the rumors about what Raimi wants to do with the franchise come true, it could be totally awesome.

Went to go meet a guy for a date. He never showed up. Dating is so much fun.
That sucks donkey nut...  I'd never ditch on a movie whether it was with a stranger on the net, or super celebrity.  What movie?? :(

It was actually just a coffee date. On the bright side, I found out the coffee shop I was at makes a super awesome pumpkin pie latte.

There is no reason (except emergencies) to stand someone up.  It is so easy to call or text to cancel.   Tunnels, I think you dodged a bullet.  It is better to not go on a date with a crappy person who shows no consideration for others. 

The dating scene is tough to navigate.  On one date I spit my food out after the guy told me that chemtrails from airplanes are the govt purposefully spraying carcinogens on us as population control.  Luckily I found a great guy.  Though he isn't into hockey, he did take me to Dallas to see a Stars/Sharks game.  Sharks lost but I still had fun. 

Thanks for the sympathy. :) Yeah, I figured as much, and it was someone I met online and there really wasn't much chemistry there to begin with, so I didn't have a lot of hope for it anyway, but it kind of sucked to be completely blown off. But yeah, I gotta say, I'll take getting stood up to having to humor their crazy conspiracy theories any day! And I'm glad you found someone who makes you happy. :D

Haps: Stimulated the economy and watched it squirm.

Silent Hill: Revelations.

This movie met my expectations. I expected it to suck.

Trick 'r Treat is an obvious (and wonderful pick).

And I know it aint a horror film THAT LIST NEEDS SOME HOCUS POCUS

I checked out Sleepy Hollow.

It takes itself a bit too seriously given the silly premise, but I got some nice Buffy vibes from it, so I'll follow it for a couple more episodes at least.

I think Chespin's evo is adorable, and Froakie's makes it look pretty badass. I'm really hoping it'll be water/fighting in the end. Not crazy about Fennekin's. Anyway, I've never been crazy about the middle evolutions for starters anyway, it's all about the final one, baby!
73  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: September 09, 2013, 10:56:32 PM
Breaking Bad

Holy shit, that was an awesome episode.

Agreed. That's seriously one fucking hell of a cliffhanger.

(It's not sexist if you put jiggle physics on the male characters as well :>)

75  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC Announced for Steam/PSP on: September 06, 2013, 12:54:40 PM
Semi-Bad News.  Looks like XSeed is "done" after SC.

Quote
MAC: But seriously, how does XSEED plan on dealing with the continuous flood of Kiseki games from Falcom? Would there be opposition to another publisher taking on the more recent games or is everyone else afraid to touch those as well?
KB: We ask ourselves that every day. We would love to release all of them if we could, but most of the later Kiseki games are even bigger than Trails SC, so I just don't see how it's physically possible. Other publishers are free to discuss with Falcom directly if they are up to the challenge.

Kinda hurt, but definitely makes sense given the sheer quantity of stuff there is to translate (Ao/Zero, and allegedly Sen is even bigger).

In other words, EVERYONE BUY TWO COPIES.  MAYBE THREE.....OR EIGHT

While I'd love for us to get Ao/Zero, if any other of the series makes it way over here after SC, I'm gonna guess it will be Sen.

Anyway, YAY FOR ANNOUNCEMENT! I know what I'm playing next after Radiant Historia.
