Nevermind the dodgy bangs, what the hell is up with those feet/legs/shoes? That looks incredibly uncomfortable...

Jesus christ is she an amputee?

I'm wondering what those spikes sticking out of her calves are for?

Don't want it, don't buy it.

Same goes for the costumes. The game is going to have like 80 of them. Pretty sure the crappy, fanservicey ones are completely ignorable. From all I've seen, the good ones, the ones that actually *suit* Lightning imo far outnumber the silly ones. I don't care for 'catpeople', so I just don't play one in XIV and I'm sure not going to make Lightning dress up like one either.

Story wise, I don't expect much. I have yet to beat XIII-2, and I'm not going to play XIII, I'll be honest. I don't know if the XIII recap/synopsis they give you in 2 is going to be enough or if I'll need to do more homework...

I should go watch that recap while PSN is down.

Still, when it comes to LR, I basically expect what X-2 ended up like: Silly to meh story, fun to play. I'm okay with that.

And that's been my big concern of the game as well. How does it play?

XIII-1 was, in my eyes, a tech demo that had gotten the basics down but you can definitely tell just how completely engineered the gameplay experience was and how the game only really offered exactly one and only one way to play it.

Meanwhile, XIII-2 finally put the 'play' in the gameplay but what it offered wasn't really all that different from what games like Dragon Quest V or VI, among others, offered back on the Super Famicom/SuperNES. So my question became whether this game had anything else going for it that makes it worth playing over just picking up and playing through one or more of those games again? My answer, of course, was a resounding "Hell No!".

So that brings me to XIII-3 and whether it finally did something worth sinking 60-80 gameplay hours of my time into, and so far from the prerelease information we've gotten BarbieLightning Dolls to play dress up with, and four whole regions to do it in, with Majora Mask style sidequests galore (with the sidequests turning out to be WoW style instead).

So I'm an hour into Kingdom Hearts.

The camera is terrible. The platforming is annoying. The music is atrocious.

I'm on my second pointless fetch quest and I'm already ready to throw in the towel.

Does it get better?

Besides thinking the music is terrible (hopefully other islands get better): No.

At least I don't think so and I'm a decent enough fan of the series.

There are fun parts, but for the most part, the first title is sort of annoying,  It's that annoying kid at a party that just ain't got nothing on his bigger bro (KHII) and sis (KHBBS) and awkward but cool cousin (3DS).

The one thing the first game has over later games is that you don't need a power point presentation to understand what the fuck's going on.

SUB machine gun....HAH....
....I hope you're proud of that.

They had to squeeze Steel Diver in there somehow.

I'll just leave this one here since I haven't any hands on time to know what this means for the game.

Making fans 'salty' since 20096.

Lets face it, people were probably complaining about Lightning looking like she-Cloud or the move away from turn based gameplay even as early as the now infamous E3 trailer.

I see what you did there.

I can also see Chroma tattooing himself slitting his momma's throat for a nickel.

Finished The Slayers: NEXT. Entertaining for the most part, despite the occasional filler episode and the last arc having like three episodes to resolve and forcing Sylphel and Zangalus (or whatever the other swordsman's name is) into the party at the last second for maximum dramabombing and being a Gourry substitute/Martina's boob prize love interest respectfully. And speaking of, Martina was pretty hilarious even if she kinda got too Team Rocket-y as the show wore on. Meanwhile, Xellos was definitely a better addition as Lina and Co.'s straight man. Anyways, up next is Princess Tutu Akira.

And speaking of....Akira. I don't know if this was progenitor of the whole "Forcing evolution is generally a bad idea/humanity's next stage of evolution is to turn into giant baby fetus blobs." plot craze in anime/videogames of the 90s/00s but it definitely has that in spades. That said, this is still a damn beautiful movie. Absolutely gorgeous in detail. Anyways, up next is Summer Wars.

And while I'm here, Kill la Kill episode 10. I will be absolutely surprised to not see this in an SRW game in the near future (maybe not Z3 but probably the next big one after that). It just keeps getting better and better.

Majestic Prince episode supplemental. Two named baddies dead and the plot continues to remain on its rails as Super Robot series of the week. Fortunately its still humorous when it doesn't take itself seriously. The sixth ranger isn't really adding anything him/herself but at least s/he's giving the rest of the cast some new material.

Revolutionary Girl Utena episode 5. Still no sign of the overall plot beyond everybody wants somebody to love/bone and blah blah World Revolution blah blah. So far, not-Prince Marth Miccy is the incestuous one.

Okay I said I would leave but I sort of have to reply to this to do, so...

The only thing I have a problem with is how you apparently feel the need to jump down the throat of anyone who says anything even kinda sorta negative about these games.  This thread is filled with examples of you doing that.  Frankly, it's kind of bizarre.  If you were responding to the criticisms raised that would be fine but most of the time you're not even saying anything new.  We already know how you feel, so why do you have to respond to every single criticism with the exact same thing?  What's the point?  It didn't change people's minds the first dozen times, so what is it going to do now?

Whatever I say is gonna come off in the wrong way so I'll just say that 'it doesn't matter'. I was never here to strangle throats or whatever, it just doesn't matter anymore.

Also I barely give much away for you guys to even know me in all this time and "the feelings" you think I have over XIII are most likely the wrong idea with how obtuse my messages were. That said I certainly don't care so why should you.

Alright, now I can go. Bye mofos!

I'm going to reply to this to see if he'll come back to get in the very, definitively, absolute, last post before eternally leaving forever again.

Man Yggdra, why you do this? There's no reason to feel bullied or threatened with Bannination, and your posting habits haven't been that bad up till now (even if you have occasionally disregarded forums posting etiquette in the past). And yeah, I can be an ass and rather salty at times, but I've gotten much better about it, you don't have to go. q_q

Screenshots and details about the sequel, albeit not a lot (and I wouldn't trust what's in here until I can see proof that Tiz is back in this).

I hate short bangs... (childhood trauma talking)

She looks like Suikoden's Sierra.

Considering her moon motif, I'm not surprised.

Also short even bangs are pretty much Japan's top princess trope. See also: The Himecut.

Whereas I had a subscription to Nintendo Power back in those days so I got to see the character art for all the major characters so Gestalt's sprite never really threw me off (at least not as much as aLttP's Agahnim did).

That said, what used to bug me was how Celes wore pants and a vest in her OA yet sprite-wise she was in a green leotard and a white cape + shoulder pads (which, going by FFIV's OA, would've been far more appropriate for Rosa).

Too bad there's no black mage or I would fit in for sure. I can't see any other character working. Too bad you can't rename Kefka, or I would jump on that!

Too bad there's no dragoon. ;)

Too bad there's no Spoony Bard or Cross-dressing pirate either. :P

I'm not surprised that AgentD got the muscle head, given how much he brings up the Gym in the Quiz chat....And speaking of the Quiz, that was supposed to be today right?
3675  Media / General Games / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: December 07, 2013, 08:02:17 PM
To be fair, if there had been even one WRPG on that list, it would have singlehandedly smoked the rest of that list combined (even if it had been as unplayable as Dragon Age 2).
