So would you describe the movie as Wolverine's anime adventures though Japanland?

Not so much anime adventures as lets throw in everything the average person in the west thinks of when they hear the name Japan. with the exception of tentacles

Pretty much what I was inferring. I wouldn't expect Wolverine to pilot a giant robot or attend a Japanese highschool anyways (not like these things couldn't be done, especially since they've already been done to Spiderman and that X-Men 2000 cartoon/anime (kinda) respectfully) but I fully expected him to partake in the foreign and exotic mysteries of the Orient such as banging a geisha, fighting a Samurai, fighting a ninja army, begrudgingly eating sushi, getting schooled on how to drink tea, wearing a bathrobe like a Kimono, walking thought a Japanese Garden, fighting through a Japanese Garden, fighting with a Samurai's Katana, watching like a minute's worth of anime, and fighting Ninja Samurai Robots with a Katana, only stopping short of watching Godzilla destroy Tokyo.

Pretty much straight out of the comics if I recall correctly.

Taking a break from SMTIV to play Project Cross Zone update: I ultimately gave up on trying to defeat T-elos in chapter 19 since three turns just isn't enough time to reach the center of the stage with more than Jin/Xiaoyu. You need at least three attackers to reach T-elos before she joins up with KOS-MOS and the western route is almost guaranteed to become a clusterfuck due to V-Dural blocking the route Harken/Kaguya need to take. And even if that did somehow work out, you'd still need a third team and the only units able to even draw close are Ryu/Ken and Reiji/Xiaomu, and due to the unfortunate choice support separation Vashyron isn't with this party for his +1 attack range skill and even Ryu/Ken's map attack is just one square shy of reaching T-elos by turn 3.

That said, I believe with the joining of KOS-MOS/T-elos, X/Zero, and Chris/Jill I should have every playable unit in the game. Now I just need to collect the rest of the supports having gained Alisa and Rikiya in the interim (incidentally, out of all the prologue characters only Bruno hasn't rejoined yet). Just beat chapter 21 which was interesting given that you're given a seize condition with a (still very generous) time limit and not very many characters to do it with compared to the usual team size.


Also nabbed me some Code of Princess for cheap earlier today and have started in on that. So far I'd say that $20 is almost about right, even if I've only scratched the surface so far.

I'd pull for a Red and Blue quiz.

Saw the new Wolverine movie last night. I found it pretty average. The plot is extremely predictable with the viewer knowing how things will finish up in the first 20 minutes.

Code:
I doubt anyone was surprised by who the final villain was

I don't regret watching it but at the same time I wouldn't recommend it.

So I'm guessing that today isn't the day for this then (unless Mibbit is screwing me over again)?

I never know when these things go down anymore.

Random suggestion of the day: Brassreiter

Do not listen to this man. He means to con you into watching a bad anime.


I am watching the Layzners. I have more hate than love for it so far.

Why?

One could say its because it is Lamyzer than other anime.

EDIT 2:



If McCain had had the sense to select him as a VP Candidate the world would be a much happier place.

The bigger question is, why isn't he the Governor of Alaska yet?

Yes. Don't let Dice cockblock this thread.

Best part of the show though is once you realize that (spoilered for the sake of those who haven't watched it yet; go on, watch it; shoo, shoo)
Code:
Vegeeta('s voice actor's character) just took over the universe.

Also there are fewer outright bastards in LoGH than in GoT.

The 3rd Neverending Story is awesome because it has young Jack Black leading a gang of teenage thugs called the Nasties. The rest of it (including his parts) not so awesome.

Now that I think about it, the third movie is actually the fourth movie since I recall there being an animated movie somewhere in between (or at least I recall there being a TV spot for it).

Pacific Rim! In 3D! And it was great! My inner 12 year old was geeking out!
My inner 18 year old was humming the Evangelion theme to myself during some of the battles!

I like how it's got that "inner Japanese soul". 

...missle?  WEAK.
SWORD?  OHKO.
Hey, the cute asian girl doesn't get groped by a tentacle or wear the schoolgirl outfit...japanese soul my ass.

No, they just got her in a plug suit which is almost right up there with those two.

Actually, I found the movies take on her refreshing. She wasn't used as bait, like females all too often are, and she wasn't there just be to be the token attractive female. In no way was she ever dressed provocatively, either. I have no clue what you're talking about in regards to her "plug" suit.
Oddly enough, the only sexual gaze type stuff was of the male nature, with the  camera seeming to dig the male lead with his shirt off.

When I say "plug suits", I'm referring to a skin tight, form fitting, body suit used by giant robot pilots in anime since Neon Genesis Evangelion (it should be noted that sometimes plug suits also include breast plates for the occasional socket to plug into).

E:F;b

How do you make FFVII current?

How do you update the old mechanics while still keeping it true enough that the old fan recognize the things they like and the new players do not find the controls, mechanics, flow and graphics to feel dated?

I think the reason S-E never touched it is because they understand it's a catch 22.

Adding to this, how do they retcon their previous retcons so that remake's story isn't completely different from the original (how many Sephiroth clones does it take to remake FFVII?)?

It's also a catch 22 in that when they make it and it inevitably bombs, fans won't be able to disregard its performance because they'll have nothing left to want from Squeenix.

That's why the day that the FFVII remake is officially announced will be the day Squeenix announces that they're giving up on making games altogether.
