Out of pretty much every anime I've ever seen, I don't think I've seen anything quite as Japanese as Pom Poko was.


Also, goddammit! I just caught myself up on the latest couple of chapters of Attack on Titan and now I want to theory craft like mad on where the plot is going next. All I can safely say is that "Plot Intensifies!" .

Double postin' for a new trailer.

Looks fun in an 'olde skool' sort of way.

Nexon (yes, that Nexon) is making a Ghost in the Shell FPS.  While it looks decent enough I do have to wonder...why Nexon...

I forget, were these the devs that had been making that bizarre Megaman X MMO a few years back?

I have way way way way too many to list since I recall so many of them, so for the sake of brevity, I'm just going to list a few for now.

Drawing the Master Sword, the first battle with Agahmin, the fight with Ganon and the Ending Sequence in Legend of Zelda: a Link to the Past.
Right after Angler's Cave, the South Face Shrine and opening up the Wind Fish's Egg in Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
Beating Shadow Link in Legend of Zelda: Adventure of Link, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and every Smash Bros. Event Match thus far.
The battle against Ganondorf in Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.
The battle against Demise in Skyward Sword (I HAV DA POWAR!!!).
Amanda's Death and the ending of Final Fantasy Adventure (aka: Seiken Densetsu 1 (i.e. Not the GBA remake of Sword of Mana)).
Reaching the Mana Tree and the ending sequence of Secret of Mana.
The Incan Ship of Gold sequence, Sky Gardens, Angel Village (namely because I've got the hell off of Mu), the end of Ankor Wat (the level itself sucks) and the Comet in Illusion of Gaia.
Running around in the underworld, and building towns and cities in Terranigma.
Any time I reach Rainbow Road in a Mario Kart game.
The ending of Super Mario World.
All of Super Mario Galaxy 1.
Death's Challenge at the end of King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow (really wish I didn't get stuck in a dead man walking scenario due to missing the xylophone at the entrance to the Land of the Dead).
Cecil's Class Job Change in Final Fantasy IV.
Galuf's battle against X-Death in Final Fantasy V.
From going to meet the Espers till getting the Falcon in Final Fantasy VI (yes, this is kinda cheating).
The boss fight at the very end of Disk 1 in Final Fantasy VII.
Chocobo's Hot and Cold, every point where General Beatrix has screen time and that one sequence where Zidane walks down a hall battling the rest of the party along the way in Final Fantasy IX.
The Gambit System, some of the hunts (Gilgamesh comes to mind) and any time I found an Esper off the beaten path in Final Fantasy XII (my least favorite part of FFXII was any time I found a treasure chest in FFXII; not including the ones that contain maps).
Clearing Riovanes Castle in Final Fantasy Tactics (namely because I didn't really get stuck at that part, not to the extent of having to restart the game).
The mid sections of Chapters 3 & 4 and pretty much all of Chapter 5 in Fire Emblem 4.
Any time the Black Knight shows up in Fire Emblem 9.
That one stage where you get to play as the Black Knight in Fire Emblem 10.
Wily's Fortress in Mega Man 2.
Wily's Fortress in Mega Man 3.
Mr. X's Fortress in Mega Man 6.
Zero's Death at the end of Mega Man X.
Your final showdown with either X or Zero at the end of Mega Man X5.
The final boss fight of Mega Man Zero 3.
Zero's Death at the end of Mega Man Zero 4.
Pretty much all of Mega Man Legends (except for that Roller Dashing minigame, that thing sucks).
Getting the Laser Gun and to the endgame of Phantasy Star 1 (and realizing just who your party's 'beat stick' ends up being).
Pretty much every boss fight in Phantasy Star 2.
The opening of Phantasy Star 3.
Zio's Fort, Anger Tower and Air Castle in Phantasy Star 4.
Returning from the opening dungeon and the first fight against Dhaos in Tales of Phantasia.
Id's response to having a Sand Submarine dropped on him, any time Ghraf shows up, the initial launch sequence of Billy's Gear, ChuChu pulling a Super Chief to fight a Tesujin, ChuChu getting crucified along with your party's giant robots, getting Citan to stop dicking around for once and take up a goddamn sword and forming the Super Dimensional Fortress Yggdrasil 2 in Xenogears.
Every moment spent chillin' up in the Eryth Sea and the Fallen Arm in Xenoblade Chronicles.
The final battle at the end of Return of the Jedi in Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron 2 (where you get to take down two Star Destroyers and a fucking shitload of TIE Fighters/Bombers/Interceptors/whatever).
Any time Ashley Riot is a badass in Vagrant Story.
The true final boss fight in Demon's Crest (a rare example of fully tricking yourself out only makes it possible to win a fight).
The escape sequence in Metroid.
Battling the Metroid Queen in Metroid 2: The Return of Samus.
EVERY LAST BIT OF The final boss fight/sequence in Metroid 3: Super Metroid.
Some of the sequence breaks in Metroid: Zero Mission.
Playing Proximity Mines or Slappers Only on License to Kill mode in James Bond 007: Goldeneye (N64 edition; also shooting up the Body Armor a bit if I'm full up and don't have Proximity Mines to booby trap the body armor with).
Alena and the final boss fight (Psaro; none of that Chapter 6 crap) in Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen Ones.
The time skip sequences in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride (especially the second one).
The real fight against Murdaw in Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation.
The Falrish/Falrod and the Dune segments, as well as any instance of Gray Rain and Golden Goddess Statue during a segment, to name a few parts of Dragon Quest VII: Warriors of Eden (because seriously, that game is fucking stuffed with excellent moments).
Dhoulmagus (doing the Heath Ledger's Joker well before Heath Ledger did the Heath Ledger's Joker in Batman: The Dark Knight) and the party of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King.

And many more...

(Also, I tried to avoid as many spoilers as possible, but honestly, a thread like this should denote that There Will Be Blood Spoilers).

Only accomplished a few things in Majora's Mask last night. I completed the Great Bay Spider House, got a bottle from the beavers, and rounded up a few pieces of heart. I'm debating whether or not I should keep side questing right now, or if I should go complete the Great Bay Temple.

Unfortunately, you do need the Ice Arrows to get into Ikana proper.

Besides, the Great Bay Temple isn't nearly as annoying as OoT's Water Temple. You just need to make liberal use of the Great Fairy's Mask and a good memory of which rooms you've been to.

It just sounds like an alternate way of obtaining egg moves on a Pokemon, so I don't think the obsessive competitive players are going to bother with it. If it gives moves you couldn't get any other way on the other hand...

My apologies, I probably should've clarified that the ability to see a pokemon's stats, IVs, nature, abilities, and moves without having to first capture it is the highlight of that feature.
22  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: November 18, 2014, 12:58:35 PM
I also wouldn't mind if the new weapon is the Double Clawshot.

But we already have a Clawshot as an item. And what would Double Clawshots even do? Bring down two Majora's Mask's Moons at a time? That's just silly.
23  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: POKéMON OMEGA RUBY & ALPHA SAPPHIRE on: November 18, 2014, 12:54:19 PM
http://www.siliconera.com/2014/11/18/pokemon-omega-ruby-alpha-sapphire-one-coolest-new-features-yet/

A feature that lets players seek out new variations of Pokemon and movesets and to boldly go and capture them? The sperglords are going to love this one.
24  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: November 18, 2014, 10:00:01 AM
Does this count as a new member of Link's harem or an alt for one of the game's best characters?
Apparently she is the new character for the next DLC, so let's go with new member of the harem since her and chibi Midna can both be on the field at the same time.

Wonder what the new weapon is going to end up being.

Probably the Dominion Rod since every other TP item is either accounted for or has a similar but different incarnation (unless the Twilight Mirror is the new weapon, which it probably is, because ^^^^^duh).

Anyways, unlike the totally unsurprising surprise that is getting TP's titular princess as a playable character, Link is also due for another costume and the popular opinion is that its going to be something that resembles the phantom warrior that teaches you all those sword techniques since it was sorta implied that he's a previous incarnation of Link.

(Could also be something that makes him resemble his wolf form minus Midna).

So I found this picture on Imgur.  Apparently the user needs to get a colonoscopy (which means a shit load of laxatives before the examination)....  This looks awesome though.



Too bad he doesn't realize that flushing the toilet causes a very fine mist of toilet bowl water to spray up from the bowl and out to the general vicinity of the bowl (i.e. easily in range of that rig).

Not to mention the general electrical hazard that is storing a bunch of active electronics right next to the goddamn shower/bathtub. All his wife needs to do is throw that XBox in there and that's all she wrote for the dipshit who clearly did not think this one through.

I'm more of a cat person, but my sister recently reached a very acceptable cat quota by buying two adorably fluffy and round kittens (one of them is named Mint),

Is the other one named Arche? If so, then a dog named Suzuka would complete the tri-fecta.
28  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: November 16, 2014, 03:28:03 AM
The last few episodes of SAO have been pretty good.
I think the show is much better with its sub plots than its main plots.

The gun one right? Because the fairy one just kept getting progressively worse as it dragged on.


And on the subject of old ass anime. Adult Swim finally got around to picking up Inuyasha: Final Act which I did not check out when it first came out on the principle that it wasn't worth bothering, but now I am bothering because why not (and also, does Hellsing Ultimate seriously have only eight episodes?; because that would be a hilariously pissweak point to end it on; and I guess would be the reason the series wound up as little more than a goofy footnote of early 00s anime/manga). Anyways, I loved how the first episode in practically starts with shorty popping in and swipes a jewel shard without so much as a "Sorry. Can't talk now. Busy kickstarting the plot.", and then he dies in the end of the very same episode. Its hilarious how you can simply feel the nitrous burning on this one (also Kagome's VA really couldn't get into the swing of things like the others could).

Well fortunately America doesn't have tonberries, behemoths and chocobos so I doubt the drivers side will be as jarring 😋

Though we do have Molboros (in convenience stores and gas stations all over the place).

I kind of hated Have One on Me the first time I heard it, so...

I think one of the things with Chrono Cross is that it has a bunch of things early on that look like some huge retcons (Namely, El Nido existing) and they're not /actually/ retcons and there's a reason for them but you don't really get an explanation for this until like, about halfway through the game, in the Dead Sea, and JRPGs being what they are I don't think many players necessarily trusted Square to actually give some resolution, especially after z. B. FFVIII went into similarly weird territory and legits never really explained some major things, not even in a cagey, ambiguous way. 

Or that was my original issue with it anyway.

(Also the game does give the initial impression that it's a LOT more depressing than it ends up being.

Code:
In particular, Lucca, Crono, and Marle are apparently dead, the assertion that humans screwed up everything, and that Serge in particular undid everything that happened in CT by merely existing. Except you end up fixing the latter two problems over the course of the game, I don't think there's any indication that Home!Lucca's dead, and I always felt like Guadia falling = Crono and Marle are dead was kind of a stretch considering how bloodless Porre's occupation of Termina was?

Oh my god I am a nerd.
)

It wouldn't have been so bad if Squeenix would at least treat Cross's alternate dimensional shenanigans as just that "an alternate version of Trigger's world". Instead, they've got Trigger so contorted and retconned now, you now have a situation where a podunk village that, at most, has a mayor who is a jerk that is kinda greedy and hedonistic (or Sir McGivesalot), suddenly, and for absolutely no reason, pulls a military force mighty enough to conquer two full continents, one of which held by the world's largest military/standing governing body (possibly run by a guy who trashed an intergalactic parasite that itself trashed civilization after civilization no less or at least his wife/that girl that was too lazy to bother bring that one quiet dude back from the dead) out of literally fucking nowhere. And the best justifications they come up with is "Dalton/Time Devourer did it!", and "Evil Masamune did it! Oh, by the way, Masamune is now evil/cursed for some fucking reason. Don't ask!" before that.

Oh yeah, and they still haven't really even tried to integrate Radical Dreamers beyond sorta kinda recycling it for the Viper Manor segment.
