That may be the perfect description of that movie.  I'm a fan, but you're right, it's a very strange film.

Wife and I watched Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3 - one Monday night, one Tuesday night - and as we started 3, she said "wait, I have no idea what happened at the end of 2."  To which I could only reply "me either."  Those movies are kind of a mess.  An at least sometimes entertaining mess, but still a mess.

I actually don't know what to say about those films.  The first one is great!  And the other ones are similar... but they're too long?  I dunno, but it runs out of steam and then you're left with a vacant smile... that slowly curls the other way to a boredom of some sort (at least with the third film). 

It actually feels like the theme park it originally was: It's fun, it's entertaining, it's noisy, and "grand" in a ridiculous way.  Unfortunately it doesn't translate well four installments in.  Nevertheless, loved the first one and even the 2nd.

Basically ^this.

The first one was about Pirates. In the Caribbean even. Doing pirate-y things like looting loot, kidnapping damsels, and buckling swashes. And even the Zombie thing worked in the 'cursed treasure is cursed' sense.

But then they started introducing sea monsters, former villains, and killing off supporting characters, and then suddenly you've got undead clusterfuck fight scenes all over the place. It just spiraled out of control. Also Jack Sparrow really couldn't last four whole movies.

I also forgot that she's the smartest in her class.

You also also forgot that she's the most powerful playable character in Super Heroine Chronicles (based upon the prerelease information at least).

Question 9 will be about Princess Demon Kay.

Q: What video game female did PDK want to 'dominate'?  Answer in a full-sentence please.

Code:
Crazy Axe Clover

Trick question. She wanted to be the one dominated.

So I'm a little late to the clusterfuck that was the end of the previous page/the top of this page but still, I have to ask. Will there be a question on Demon Princess Kay's antics in this quiz?

For post-game/DLC, is min maxing necessary at all?

It helps a lot. Like the aforementioned monster Chichu makes fighting Snow a lot easier (even if its still a gimmick fight, at least a maxed out Chichu helps to expedite that).

When I look back on the amount of time I wasted doing this shit...I have to wonder why I'm playing this silly game...

I've been wondering since you first started posting about it.

So a bunch of titles just got announced, including a rhythm based cooking game (lolwut?).

A rhythm-based strip cooking game.  Missing some essential info there...

I figured that it stood to reason that the above was going to be the case, given the series notoriety.

Enough about tortured homecomings and fashion dos and don'ts. This game is pretty great and I eagerly await its release. My only complaint is ninja with red mage and ninja supports and crescent moon off valkyrie's (that also irritates me, why is it not dragoon?) command list and double ninja knives or any strong swords is a fucking invincible wrecking machine in the demo. Transcience, turn tables, comeback kid, and everyone cast utsusemi=attack boost, counter attack if single target, and a free bp. I got bored and tried everyone witb that set up and killed the automaton with the unscathed bonus.

February is looking really awesome atm.

Did pretty much this. Even on Hard Mode this combination just demolishes the challenge of later fights.

Also pretty much 100%'d the demo. Hit level 20, mastered every job, own a copy of nearly every available item (including an enemy dropped fire rod), and even found the hidden chest.

I could happily trade quotes from that movie for almost as long as the movie lasts. :)

♪I. Have. A singing telegram.♪ *ker-shot*

Granted, its not the most quotable movie in my books, but it has its lines.

I finally got my hands on a PSP, which means I can FINALLY sink my teeth into my PSP backlog, which means I can finally restart TitS. Made it to the end of the first day so far.

As for other gaming haps, mostly trying to go back to FFX-1 and finally finish a playthrough of that. So far up to Luca.

And if I'm around, it'll be purely for the spectacle (as I have not played it nor have I any interest in doing so).

I still can't believe that Awakening lost Readers' GotY runnerup by a single vote.

Anyways, it seems like Path of Exile was the sweeper of the year when not against FFXIV.

Also, props to Neal for remembering that Tokitowa existed and sucked.

Here's to Bravely Default sweeping 2014's GotY (unless something like SMTXFE or Persona 5 or that other Persona game (not that one, nor that one either, I mean the other other one; you know the one) comes in to snatch it).

On the plus side, at least the little beggars can swim.
