From what I've heard, Valvrave was pretty bad but in a good way.


That said, after looking it up recently, everything about Kill La Kill looks fucking amazing. I don't know if it'll be amazingly good or amazingly awful but it will be amazing.
That sounds a lot like Sukaban Deka only with swords instead of killa yo yos

This is almost entirely why I'm so hyped about this. It's like a cross between that, Bubblegum Crisis, Gurren-Lagann, and with a possible hint of Utena (the almost is from the fact that since the face-shirts can transform into Gurren-Lagann style Powersuits, it might be possible to see this in an SRW somewhere down the line).

I wrote this in my review, but I think KH3DS' worlds were the worst in the series. Visually, they looked great, but they were basically big empty boxes for you to use flowmotion. I sincerely hope that system does not return again. It was just TOO much. Bring back command fusion from BbS!

I think, more than anything else, what KH3 needs is some elaborate and more interesting worlds-- and MORE EMPHASIS ON DONALD AND GOOFY AGAIN

Hear hear!

I take it that you've never read Worlds of Power before, have you?

No, why should I care?

Because now I have to explain the joke to you.

The joke being that the author of that particular series of books 'attempted' to rationalize certain aspects of videogame logic like how rations helped you get through the electrified floor gauntlet at the end of the original Metal Gear by saying that Snake was able to pass through the hazard relatively unscathed because the floor was PG-fied down to a heated floor that was too hot to touch normally and only by altering his core body temperature via pigging out on rations was Snake able to bypass the trap without getting hurt (no dying, because again, PG-fied).

Basically, its an amazingly amusing effort at trying to rationalize videogame logic which is a fools errand to begin with as videogame logic is what keeps videogames from being simulations. And the point I was trying to make is that trying to say that one form of videogame mechanics is less logical than another isn't entirely a merit-less argument but it is a silly one.

At first I thought this was something manipulated from Smash bros until I immediately realized it was from the TV show...which I really liked.

That hand...

About ramming sheep:
....boop!

About the tutor thing.  Seriously, that glorified bowl-cut ain't cutting it.  His hand gestures are.  HEYO

Anyways, I present the mythical age of the 90s.

Those are all nice and such but what you're missing is peak 90s.



^THIS! Is peak 90s.

Not like Rations were a rational way to explain how one recovers from walking over electrified floors and so on.

The general idea has practically always been that consuming rations recovers stamina even though the description in-game says that is to recover life (and psyche in MGS4).

There are also bandages in MGS2 to stop bleeding. The way that worked though was more tied to not being detected by soldiers if you leave droplets of blood behind.

I take it that you've never read Worlds of Power before, have you?

"Vagina Teeth".

Nice avatar post combo there.


And to not make this just a silly remark, I finally got around to watching The World's End With You. It's pretty much uses the same formula as the other movies in the trilogy at this point, and not that the formula isn't funny but it's been three movies already so I already knew about the mounting of Chekov's Gun Rack at the beginning, the fact that it was going to be a parody of some other movie (in this case, Invasion of the Body Snatchers), and so on.

Still a decent movie all in all.

I always thought Tri-Aces wanted to make a Phantasy Star game.

I bet they can't wait to have the player crash on a underdeveloped planet and remove all sci-fi in the first 10 minutes.

... and replace it with creepy lolis.

And clothing destruction.

Also looks like they are totally striping you of a good chunk of your tech after your crash land on a primitive planet. :v I'm surprised they haven't mentioned any sort of Prime Directive that'll get brought up all of once and then promptly ignored/violated yet.

anyone ever play dungeon fighter? it looks like a pretty crazy game that puts a spin on dice rolling rpgs. Considering getting it.

Does Dungeon Fighter Online count?

Y'shtola is the white haired cat lady.

Rinoa was in the iOS version of Theatrhythm.

I thought he was talking about the characters on the notes since he listed all of them save for Rinoa and Vivi and named Y'shtola instead for some reason.

New characters noted in the magazine scan are:

Y'shtola (XIV)

Source: Nova Crystallis

How can that not be Riona? She has the same Arm-Chakrahm-Pinwheel-Boomerang-Launcher thingy and everything.

An overview of the improvements we'll be seeing.

The most important one? Multiple save slots.

There's like... 3 characters dancing on the notes and the banner below I can't recognize.... ALLL MY YEARS PLAYING FF... I'M A FAILURE.

Looks like there's a VS mode.

The image quality is pretty bad, but on the notes from left to right you have Benjamin from FFMQ, a Black Mage/Vivi from various FFs/FFIX (if Vivi wasn't in the original then its mosdef him), Ace from FF Type-0 (really hard to tell but it looks like he's sporting a red cape), Yuna from FFX-2 (even if it's nigh impossible to tell if that's a bow or a gun and her rat's tail), Zack from FFVII/FFVII:CC (but is that a Keyblade?), Riona from FFVIII, and Ramza from FFT.

On the banner you have Garnet/Dagger/Serah from FFIX, Baltheir from FFXII and associates, Aeris/Aerith from FFVII and associates, Locke/Lightning in her Heartstealer costume from FFVI/XIII-3, and a Chocobo from FF-all but the original.

And on the stage from order from top left to bottom right you have Chaos and what's her face (Order, CONTROL, Krystal, Sleepy Bitch; I forget) on the columns, FFVI's Terra/Tina, FFIX's Zidane, FFIII's Onion Kid/Knight, FFV's Barts/Butz, FFXIV's catgirl, not-Vera race representative (couldn't tell you who), FFXII's Vaan, FFXI's Shanto (or whatever the hell her name is), FFX's Tidus, FFII's Firion/Firionel, FFVII's Cloud, FFI's the Warrior, FFXIII-1's Lightning, FFVIII's Squall, FFIV's Cecil, and FF-pick a number above 2's Mog.

Hopefully this game has a better shot of making it outside of Japan than it's predecessor did.
