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.

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.

FFIX had a very small number of reskins (mostly the Memoria Crystal bosses, the friendly monsters and a couple of rare instances), but that's because, like FFVIII, it relied upon level scaling instead (which is how you can have fights against Alexandria soldiers at various points and not completely flatten them, also Mist Monsters). But unlike FFVIII, it only ever came up on the rare instance where the exact same enemy type used earlier in the game appears again (and this is always due to plot). On the other hand, FFVIII went all in on level scaling (FFT did too, but it still had pallet swaps due to the crazy amount of spriteing needed for a given character model, let alone just how much space getting all those attack and ability animations in for the humans alone; its this reason why battles were on such a small scale in those games), but because it did that, it ended up in a situation where you were still effectively fighting the same ten enemies over and over again for like 90% of the game (the other ten percent is when stuff like those Hockey Players show up); their stats (re: HP) just got larger to keep up with your characters and their Junctions.

FFVII also has the occasional pallet swap (enemy SOLDIERs, those Frogs and a couple of others). But yeah, diversity-wise it and FFIX rival some of the most diverse offerings the series has ever seen.

Super Groupies has more Tales-inspired fashion.
The shoes!!  Male characters inspiring some face ladies heels (the Leon one being a bit 'girly' for me, and the Yuri one is perfect....but that heel...)

However, there is also a pair of pretty fly ToX2 kicks coming out from them that looks just right:


Those look small as fuck. Like, I grew out of shoes that size when I was 9.

Actually, Quiji turned out to be a half-decent horror movie. I was properly cropped out, and I guess that's the point.

Wait, you were in Quiji and got cut out by the editors when they tightened the focus on all the shots you were in as far away from you as they could?

Man, it sucks that they couldn't even squeeze you in with pan and scan. Lol.

Fishing confirmed. GOTY 2015!

They're also adjusting the bosses, to which I say, that Swamp Temple boss desperately needed it. The others, not so much. Then again, I don't think I really want to have to fight any of the bosses as a Deku Scrub.

You must have watched some seriously fucked up cartoons back in the day, because unless it was Itchy and Scratchy, there weren't too many instances of characters going full on no-face.


As for the VC thing kicking the AC thing's ass, all I want is for SEGA to recall that there are markets beyond Japan's.
She's talking about older stuff....well unless you get into anime. Then the caricature she is talking about shows up in more recent stuff. Like Mr. Popo in DBZ. Unless I am completely misinterpreting what she is talking about. >.>

I know what she's talking about. But I also know that the racial caricature being depicted in that image is the hyper offensive No-Face. You guys think its all fun and games to mock people based solely on their 'lack of skin anything over the facial region', but if anyone stopped and thought about how they're treating this minority and how would they like it if they were treated just as badly as someone who has no face. People without faces are people too!

Tetsuya Nomura seems to have been "demoted" as of late to just doing art concepts.  So yaay, he gets a chance to hone his skills again after being away from pen and paper for so long.

Isn't he supposed to be making Kingdom Hearts still?

(I wasn't expecting to be taken seriously there... I was just bein' a ...goof; the point was more the images).  Either way, he was an early influence to me, so I like keeping track of what he does even if I'm much more critical of it these days.





Totally missed opportunity to denote the fact that Storm can indeed 'make it rain' all day, ev'ry day, at any given time.


And yeah, Nomura was basically demoted so hard that he's pretty much one of the few major names still working on KH3 (most of the key players of the KH team have left the building at this point). Its pretty much only a matter of time before he ends up going freelance at this point, because he's officially 'blown it'.

^ bit of a drag. ;/

He has a communication network he can run alone, that does not use any traceable communication architecture and yet can stay in touch with plenty of people anonymously.
He's also a hacker, plastic surgeon, pharmaceutical expert and the world's best brainwasher.

He RIPPED A GIRL'S EYE OUT, KEEPS IT AS A SOUVENIR AND A DAY LATER SHE LOVES HIM AND WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR HIM.

Did I mention that he's also still very young? Like 20s.

+

And the bad guy? He's a genius engineer + surgeon with underground facilities that can become invisible, control his hue and make people's hue clear just by talking to them.

The guy transplanted the girl's eye on himself and it works fine... (yes... incredibly possible)

He's also a weapons engineer, robotic expert, programmer, server administrator and game maker now too.

Seriously, who wrote this villain?

The main girl (Akane from s1) isn't even doing anything except dancing in the palm of the bad guy's hand and getting humiliated repeatedly, episode after episode (so that's 6 entire episodes of that).
Why would I want to watch this?

I'm dropping this officially...

Yes, but can he be all the Bahamuts at once, wield Soul Edge or suffers from a Crisis of Infinite Yeuls? I mean, at least the female lead of this show is getting chumped on screen nor do you have to pay extra to make it so that you can watch the female lead get chumped on screen.


That said, now that western licensees are picking up shows for localization, I'm finally able to start back on MMOeconomics 2: The Search for More Money (aka Log Horizon S2).
