Either way, its cuts not being made to Atlus USA, and that's a good thing.

But as Eusis pointed out, if they intend to cut Atlus USA we won't know about it for a while yet.

Right, but right now only SoA is getting cutbacks (Skies of Arcadia, NOOOOOOO!!!) and last I checked they didn't go by the name Atlus USA. Now whether this good news will last is something we won't know until November.

And btb, by 'good news', I mean, Sega doing something that isn't completely moronic, like ignoring the rest of the world to cozy up to Japan's tiny little overworked teat. Not that I wish anybody in SoA to be without a job in this economy, but they and their talents were effectively being squandered.

Did the yearly Halloweenie movie watching thing and watched Hocus Pocus for the umpteenth time. Still only mildly amusing and 90s as all hell.

Also watched Dr. Syn aka. Scarecrow for the umpteenth time. Still basically British Zorro and 60s Disney as all hell.

Still too early for the Great Pumpkin though. Calling it now though, Charlie Brown's still not going to kick that football and it will be kiddie movie as all hell.

I'm surrounded by old jaded old farts. :v

However I think much of the way you guys feels comes from consuming too much media more than being "old" (even though being old has something to do with it).

Read this post in a "kind of a serious tone but not really" manner. Thanks for your understanding.*

That said, sayonara grandpas! :3

To be fair though, it's actually a good thing to expose yourself to a lot of media if you're willing to diversify as there's a lot of really good stuff out there that blows like 99.9999% of anything manga, anime, & video games have ever done completely out of the water. People who say that FFT or Cowboy Bebop is the greatest thing evar are not only completely full of shit but are fucking ignorant clods. And that's because there is no one "Geetest Thang EVAR!!!" because there are a ton of things out there that have at least some merit to them (and plenty of things that have absolutely no merit to them whatsoever *cough*Brickleberry*cough*) and that nothing can honestly be considered to be flawless (yes, even Shakesphere).

And then of course, is personal interpretation which is a :can: of worms that I do not want to touch.

But yeah, not being serious here, just pointing it out.

This basically takes 10 pieces of major types of shelving and other types of furniture into a single one piece that's probably good for everyone in at least one place they'll live in.


You know, I could buy Walt being the one to come up with Megavolutions in the pokeverse. Mega Charizard X looks like the Blue Crystal of poke evolutions.

Aw damn, FF IX is that classic I-really-like-this-game-but-I'm-not-exactly-an-expert situation.  I'll play, but I won't go in with as much confidence as some of the other quizzes. 

And sorry about missing the quiz earlier tonight.  I was predisposed. 

Man, if you had been there then I wouldn't have had to have taken that quiz. The only reason why I did was to see it done and dusted since I knew I was going to get my ass kicked almost as badly as if I had done the Persona 4 quiz.

The fact that I got even one question right was a goddamn miracle.

At least I quite a bit more comfortable with FFIX than with any Tri-Ace game.

I'm not so much mad I missed it as much as I'm mad that Gamestop basically lied to me as to what I was pre-ordering when I made the pre-order.

Yeah, they have a tendency to do that. I, generally speaking, don't like preordering anything from them.

Anyways, I wasn't really that interested given how many figurines of Nintendo characters are released in general. I bet if I looked hard enough I could find something similar for about the same price, just sold separately.

next week, ff9?????????????? :D

i want 50 questions there

Though if you get any of them wrong, the Ragtime Mouse won't let you have any more.

Also, I don't care who won or lost, I'm just glad that's done and dusted. SO3 to this quiz was almost like SO3 was to the Star Ocean series (i.e. its DOOM!!!).

Kill la Kill: Unlike Aeolus this one didn't do much for me.  It's a bit too out there for me.  I like settings that are a little more grounded and thought-out.  This is stylized to the point of nonsense.  The visual and animation styles are certainly unique, though.

I'd say give it time. I'm smelling TTGL in this, in that the initial premise is probably going to veer to the left at some point and never look back. Hell, the Homeroom teacher probably has more going on at the moment then anyone else.

Besides, its nowhere near as stylized as Dead Leaves was. Holy shit, was that an incomprehensible anime.

I Couldn't Become a Hero so blah blah blah: Uuuuuugh.  Start with a similar premise as The Devil is a Part Timer, remove everything that was funny or interesting about it, turn the fanservice up to 11, and you get this show.  OK, the random appearance of the Enterprise was kind of funny, but that was the only thing that got so much as a chuckle out of me in the entire episode.  And it had nothing to do with anything else in the show...

It was probably funnier when Pani Poni Dash did it (and promptly ran it into the ground).

No Torment hit the last goal, when you add in all the Paypal donations. Admittedly it took an extra month, but we are getting the last stretch goal.

Fine. It hasn't it all of its stretch goals, yet.

Okay, took a min for me to figure out what the heck this sentence said, but now I see it is just missing an h! Ah-ha. I have broken the code! Although I'm not quite sure how you reached the conclusion that you did based on what I said. >.> So to try and clarify, it hit the last stretch goal sometime around May 29th (or at least that is when it was announced on the Kickstarter).  Wait I take that back according to their Tumblr site, they hit it April 29th, and I guess they took a month to post it on Kickstarter.

That'll learn me to judge progress based on the Kickstarter page instead of following Tumblr.

So. We good this week?

Don't forget those PMs.

Checked the first episode of Kill la Kill.

Hot damn that was a fun first episode. It's pretty raunchy, but the solid action, over the top silliness, and excellent visual work just owns bones. The best part though was that it never got too frantic, I could follow everything that was going on (aside from the occasional blink and you missed them sight gags, and even those weren't that hard to catch; or concurrent dialogs since that's two lines of subs on top of what's going on screen, but that only happens once). And outside of being a framing device, the Japanese Highschool Bullshit was practically non existent.

This seriously looks like its going to be a really fun show.

Some good-ish news (well at least for those not involved).
3959  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Random and Amazing Pictures, Please! on: October 04, 2013, 04:35:10 PM

Ain't it the truth.

Hot damn. They pretty much doubled their funds in just a single week.

And with Paypal still running there might actually be enough to see the Heroes and Third Bonus Chapter goals reached in the coming months.
