Should I watch "a bit of fry and laurie?"

oh god yes

I've been rewatching father ted, red dwarf, and blacks books.  Britcom's really cheer me up when I'm down.

father ted and black books are just aces.

And Red Dwarf is Ace Rimmer.

God I miss Public Broadcasting. I just can't seem to accept any substitutes.


I was wondering if I should put this in the mmo's topic or here...

Anyone check out that new show "Level up" yet? I dunno if it's good or not, but it's probably the most realistic representation of video gamers' dream lives. They did a decent job of hitting the nerdy lingo too, it's like reading through some of gamefaqs forum board topics for modern warfare. Not saying it's a good show, it's just funny to watch and see what we all looked like at one point or another.

From what I saw, it looked quite stupid. But then I did miss the MMO part which makes sense in the "So we gave a bunch of Disney channel rejects Nerf weapons and told them to Tweet Speak at CGIs and called it a show.".

So when did you watch Mask of the Phantasm?


Robocop is awesome. I hear that a remake is in the works which means there's a 75% chance that they'll destroy another classic:/.  I watched Priest last night. Pretty much middle of the road but they could certainly expand the universe if they so chose.

As long as people are being reduced to hamburger, cheesy special effects are being used, one liners are being spouted, and camera work doesn't consist of that retarded shaky crap that never lets you see anything that's happening, then you have nothing to worry about. Bonus points if they can somehow work in 80's hair, Detroit currently being a desolate wasteland, and the Internet in a non retarded manner.

The ending isn't set in stone much like D.GrayMan or Claymore since the mangas continued the stories properly.The anime got chopped.

Thanks for reminding me about Claymore's anime ending. That shit both sucks and was unnecessary considering how much further the manga was from that point when they excreted that out. Hell the manga was further along in the States then where they ended the show. All they needed to do was leave it at that last battle then let it either serve as motivation for a new series later or simply drive interest back into the manga. Now they're screwed either way since they either have to retcon those last three episodes or start again if they want to pick it back up.

If anything it's because she was too skimpy as they've seem to have done away with every character that could've been considered skimpy save for Ivy (who toned it way the hell down) and Sophitia (kinda since she and Kilik are now Edge Masters#2 & 3). Hilda's the only other returning female and she's still in her heavy metal, suit of armor.

...and that's when Aeris tried to dress up Cloud like a prostitute. 


The best part of FF7 was deciding whether to dress cloud as a 2-bit whore or a high-class call girl.

jRPG "choices" > wRPG ones?

If we're talking Bioware like WRPGs then yes, as when a real JRPG choice comes along you can actually do something interesting like take a route split or determine how your kids will come out as, whereas even meaningful Bioware choices are doomed to eventually be retconned by the next game in their trilogy and otherwise determine whether you get to use the paragon or renegade skill sets now and which party member you get to bang awkwardly. The meaningless choices of course comes down to being ignored or getting a but thou must (although sometimes they'll hide something in a but thou must choice) versus being a prick, being a sarcastic prick, and being an ass.

I consider Noel to be the epitome of all good male heros in rpgs from here on, and Caius the tormented villian of tormented villians. Fuck sephiroth, boo hoo people said I was different and my mommy was a strange alien looking ancient thing. Meanwhile, and if you haven't beaten xiii-2 yet DO NOT HIT THE BLACK BOX IT WILL RUIN EVERYTHING FOR YOU....

Code:
Caius is immortal, and has to live eternally to watch the o.ly person he cares about be born, and live an incredibly short life filled with the pain of seeing everything in time and having it destroy her. He can do nothing, until he decided to simply destroy, not stop, DESTROY time. Sephiroth's shitfaced problem is like having a zit in highschool. Caius is more like being told his twin daughters are both gonna die, and he can save one only by sacrificing the other. Talk about  tragic dilemnas. Fuck Caius, I hate that I feel bad for him

I still think the best villain was DO NOT HIT THE BLACK BOX IT WILL RUIN EVERYTHING FOR YOU....
Code:
The Shadowlord simply because he's also the main character and both of them are doing the exact same thing for the exact same reasons which ends up fucking everybody over in the process (although really if Albert Wesker hadn't been such a pompous douche to begin with the game would've had the good ending instead of the Emil's head rolling through the wasteland ending).

Meanwhile, Ol' Sephy was basically Jenova's puppet while she was looking to score some sweet DBZ power levels off of the lifestream or something.

I'd like to also point out that the characters do not "die" in battle. Their official status is "K.O.".
So they are only unconscious.

Of course this begs the question of why someone dies instantaneously from a blade, but manages to only be knocked out by Emerald Weapon falling on top of them. GUYS THESE ARE CLEARLY PLOTHOLES.

Really? That's when your suspension of disbelief is shot to hell? Not when your guys are getting shot to hell by the weakest grunts in the game? When they don't even have the excuse of high levels and awesome materia/equips? And they aren't even taking enough damage to warrant blowing a potion's worth of healing on?

Back when I was a teenager I was just looking for something that didn't require sibling or friendly input. Now I just want to play something that isn't aimed for children half my age or drunken frat movie connoisseurs.

Latest Atlus USA game announcement.

http://www.siliconera.com/2012/02/16/stay-tuned-says-atlus-usa/

Well that's no mystery. >:(

I like her design. :( (Even though she wasn't Fujishima's.)


At least she looks like she has a spine. Isn't EVERY Tales female protagonist the shy type?
Not really. Rutee, Chloe, and Tear are pretty strong, even though they still flll a specific anime trope.

I will admit that she's does deserves props for probably being the first female MC in a Tales Of game.

Additionally that Tales of Eternia chick was pretty straight forward (due to being hindered by a different language).

After watching that video, my next question is ready.

If Aeris was paralyzed from the chest down, why didn't Cloud or anyone else just cast esuna or use a remedy on her. Both cure paralysis, so this whole fucking shit could have been averted. Goddamnit square, plot holes abound. Also relevant, where was auto life?

Different kinds of paralysis. The one commonly alluded to in video games is the kind of paralysis that comes from an overload of the nervous system like getting tased whereas you're referring to actual damage to the nerves. A regular cure spell would work if healing magic wasn't completely ineffectual against dramatic wounds.
I call bullshit on your theory, esuna cures any status ailment, from a common cold to a broken bone. Hell it can cure being frozen and on fire (in other games). Paralysis is paralysis, how it happened doesn't matter. Henceforth, shenanigans to your theory.

Sure. And I bet Esuna can cure eradication/zombification/stop/death as well, can't it?

Man, Inti-Creates needs to go back to making more Megaman games....Oh wait.

Well, I'm being kind of superficial he to be hon

Iest. Xillia's cast looks cooler.
(Plot sounds better too.)


I don't know whether to love milla's design. It's a goddamn mess to say the least, hooker attire being another matter entirely.

Nevermind having enough hair to break her own neck if she looks at something wrong. Seriously, she's like 50% hair. I haven't seen hair that big since the 80's. She has a carbon footprint larger than a coal fire power plant due to all the hairspray she goes through everyday. Her hair is so big, she needs a goddamn rake to comb it. In Soviet Russia, hair grew her.

I don't understand why a whole bunch of people didn't just throw together a barrier materia set and cast mbarrier on the planet when meteor came. Or even better, why not just stop on the meteor? Not only would it get stuck, you'd have a pretty second moon in the sky. Everyone wins!

Unfortunately the MBarriers would wear off in seconds, maybe a minute if you cast Slow on the planet beforehand, and that meteor could easily hang in the sky for months or even years (depending on the player) before crashing down. Still, points for taking the SRW approach to the problem.

Besides they did try shooting it with a hunk of huge materia and we all know how well that turned out.
