It'd be a pretty fucking epic twist if someone wrote a Batman arc where you find out that his parents never died and the entire thing was just something his mind produced after being exposed to the toxic gas that gave him his superpowers.


He means infinite money.

Although that one episode where the Scarecrow gases Batman into a comma where he believes his parents are alive and he reenacts that bell tower shooter scene at the end was pretty damn awesome. Same with the one where Batman ended up in some thug's trap that ended in an unwinnable scenario and he basically had to bullshit his way out of that one, and the one where a bunch of villains were playing poker with each other while regaling their tales of who came closest to defeating Batman. Also the Clayface and Mr. Freeze episodes but those go without saying.

Alright The Ideon: Be Invoked is over. Dunno what to think about this, really liked some of the music and parts of the animation but other than that it wasn't the greatest experience I thought it was going to be for how people reacted to it.

Maybe with time and after watching other anime series and movies I'll appreciate Ideon better though.

The scene when this kid called Ashura Novak gets decapitated by enemy fire was the best part of the entire film. Yeah that happens.


Also, squirrel in a space suit.

You forgot that explosive decapitation from the beginning of the movie. Watching the reflection of Kitty's head loft through the air off of Cosmo's helmet was goddamn golden (because the scene is followed by the opening credits and you know that the rest of this movie isn't going to end well).

After all what Inafune said when he left Capcom, putting his name on Neptunia was weird as hell because he put his image on a game that has all the fucking things that he has complained for years with his "Japanese gaming industry is dying" speech.

Ugh. I somewhat respect the guy but after that I guess there's not much people that can taking him seriously as a game creator, or whatever.

To be fair though, that isn't the only thing he's been doing lately.

New trailer showing things other than boss fights.

Eh, I've got a negative variation name for every company when they're pissing me off. Just so happens some work better than others...
Crapcom, Square-penis, Failtronic Arts, Activishit, Bust, Whacklus, Nippon Kimchi (I really don't like kimchi so it works), Bioflop....I can't remember other companies right now but I have more.

Ya, those are okay, but crapcom works especially well imo.

I mean the game could be good, but, I've accepted the fact D3 is online only (for now) and if the loot captivates me near what it did in D2 (which i musta played almost as much as every other game combined) I won't be needing a game for a while. IF D3 was coming out in a few months, sure, I woulda picked this up, why not? It looks fun and somewhat original all in all.

Hey! No fair. I've been using Crapcom since they Megacanned Legends 3. XP

I know I'm way behind on this, but I picked up a copy of Arkham Asylum yesterday and have been playing the shit out of it ever since.  I love it.  Unless something goes horribly wrong before it ends, this is gonna end up being one of my favorite games produced in this generation of consoles.

And I hear that the sequel is even better, which blows my mind. :P

I really wanted to give that one a shot.... but I can't freakin' stand super heroes.... any of them... are you a super hero/batman fan at all? I'm waiting for someone who really detests super heroes on a level akin to myself to suggest this one to me.... cause in all honestly I can't think of a single thing in all of western culture I detest more.... except for maybe the NFL.... something about watching large rich men run about on fake grass really irks me....

I wouldn't say I DETEST super heroes, but I will say that I've never much given a fuck about Batman. :P  I like the game because it feels like Assassin's Creed and Metal Gear Solid had a goth baby.  The stealth aspect is far more vital and fleshed out than Assassin's Creed ever was, and the combat is far more fluid than Metal Gear.  It's the best of both worlds.  If you like one or both of those, then I'd urge you to give it a shot.  You can find it pretty cheap these days.

My problems with superheroes in general can be summed up in two points
A) They're wildly inconsistent and often possess conflict traits attributes (granted some of these characters have been around for up to a century and handled by hundreds of writers/editors).
B) No matter what happens, status quo is god and no changes/deaths ever last (unless you're some 20+ year old D-lister that nobody ever gave a fuck about then you'll probably die in one of the infinite crises that's either happening now or will in the near future when the previous one wraps up).

Oh god fan, I've been waiting to get home from my trip to show you the SCARIEST MANNEQUIN EVER.

Found in Dundedin, New Zealand. This is supposed to be a KID.

Bitch is gonna cut my throat out.

It's like looking at one of them animes in the 3-DEE.

The only reason I'm "boycotting" Capcom myself is that they have canned the games I want and haven't released anything I REALLY want, at worst I'll just skip borderline cases (usually fighters) until there's something I actually want enough... like this, though I'm going to wait a bit because I'm NOT that interested to play right away.

Plus we really don't know just how much game will be available at the start versus how much of it will require DLC to unlock.
3535  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Good cyberpunk anime? on: May 05, 2012, 06:49:09 PM
Now that I think about it, cyberpunk doesn't seem like a very popular style in anime at all.

You can't put a high school with generic characters in a cyberpunk series because that would actually be interesting I guess.

No, you can. Just look at Guilty Crown. It's basically Shining Hearts in a cyberpunk setting.

But yeah, even if the cyberpunk genre didn't die out a decade ago, the bar on quality wouldn't have been challenged all that much. I mean, when I think of cyberpunk outside of standouts like GitS I tend to think of crap like Angel Cop and Virus Buster: Surge; violent, sexed up, grim dark, trashy, lowbrow escapades. And aside from the rampant sexual exploitation and general lowbrow-ness, Moe stands in complete contrast to cyberpunk, which is unfortunate due to its prevalence in today's anime market.

Also cyberpunk now means MMO setting rather than grimdark/Blade Runner-ish settings of the 80's (given that we're now basically in that future that cyberpunks pessimistically warned us about and that's what the seedy underbelly of humanity turned into, more or less).

That all said about TO I'd probably go with the PSP version rather than the PSX version where you have to stop and grind after every stage early on because of the difference one level makes and the lack of options to compensate. Still probably better than FFT though by virtue of letting you field twice as many units giving a much larger scale to fights than FFT's five man teams. Also because you can't just slap Blade Grasp or Auto Potion on everybody and laugh at almost every plot battle.

As for what I'm currently doing I'm basically scouring the internet for information on that new Fire Emblem game due to not being certain on its chances outside of Japan and because I currently have nothing better to do than to practice eugenics (and throwing out job applications every week).

Less than a month to go folks.
3538  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Siliconera to announce Squeenix "Exclusive" tomorrow on: May 04, 2012, 02:07:21 AM
how wonderful a cancelled game

Next up Square announces a game that doesn't exist.

The world doesn't need another Versus XIII.

Just keep believing! After all, it worked for Duke Nukem Forever.

I miss the days when we were still waiting for DNF.

If I remember Naruto correctly, it jumped the shark shortly after the first time skip where Sasuke became a villain and Naruto became the "I know Shotting Gun!" guy while the rest became irrelevant. Also it's weird how the series started with a Harry Potter sort of dynamic between the principal trio (if Harry Potter focused on the misadventures of orphan Ron while Harry was a brooding, show stealing twat).

Don't follow animu or manga news closely, but I'd like to know if there's is any new shonen series that has become the big thing lately? Just curious.

Not that I know of, but of course, I don't follow shonen very closely. I do know that One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach had been dominating the charts for the longest time until recently, when Bleach got knocked down a couple of pegs and is now confirmed to be Ending soon. I thought Fairy Tail was primed to take its spot on the charts, but I'm not sure if it did, or if some show I don't know about did.

EDIT: Oh boy, apparently Blue Excorcist took Bleach's spot on the charts way back in November. I remember one of my friends going on about that, and I finally gave it a watch - it was nothing special. I really wasn't surprised to see it only lasted 25 episodes.

Then there's Fairy Tail and some show about a cook.

I don't know if Soul Eater's still kicking around but if it is then that seemed entertaining enough.

Also, lol at people finally getting wise to Bleach's shenanigans of constantly reiterating the Soul Society arc and being batshit with its powerlevels in a less tolerable than DBZ/GT way.
