Kinda surprised Noctis wasn't added in.  It'd be a good promo, I think.

For the next update/sequel? Sure. Right now though is too soon for that.

Maybe DLC, but I doubt there'll be another sequel given the whole purpose of the 'Curtain Call'. Nah, who am I kidding, even if the whole thing was so tightly wrapped up in a pretty little bow, Squeenix could always find a way to append something else to the end.

And Futurama is done. That's it. No more.
Code:
Not unless the writers take the out they left themselves in the episode.

Anyways, it was a very final episode-ish final episode with the usual 'revisit the start' and 'main couple ties the knot and lives happily ever after' ending. An interesting note is that after a certain point in the episode, only Fry and Leila's VAs were left doing their roles.

Honestly, good riddance...

Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love the first four seasons. The following four "movies", and the first season of their return to TV were OK. After that, it just seemed like the writing became incredibly lazy and witless. No plot depth; awful pacing; thoughtless gags/jokes... I tried to watch an episode that was recently added to Netflix, and had to turn it off after a few minutes. Terribly unfunny, and not really entertaining at all. Much like the last 7 or so seasons of The Simpsons. When shows get to that point, it just seems like they are thoughtlessly churning out episodes just to get TV ratings.
Just my opinion, of course.

This season was pretty terrible.  The only episode I really liked was Fry "living" at home one more day (but still told through an odd plot of a really loud noise/car alarm thing...the hell?).  At the very least, the record was spotty at best for the last few seasons in terms of what really stuck out.

Nevertheless, this was a great episode and a great conclusion to a pretty damn fine series (and working off Simpsons' reputation [was] certainly no easy task at the time).

Hopefully we'll see a glorious Gandalf the White return for yet another encore.
The team building exercise was freaking hilarious in my opinion, especially that scene where Leela ate the "exotic lunch." I was rolling.

I liked the Friender and Lamey bits better but yeah, probably the best episode of the season (although the 2D Space and Fry's Memories episodes are the best runner-ups).

Okay, I lol'd at that one. That's just perfect.

At least you'll be able to play as classic Phantasy Star characters.

Once you clear at least 50 floors in the bonus dungeon

You also need to beat the Iseria Queen five times. And each time she gets harder. Also you need to beat the final boss with the Limiter Off.

Um, inapplicable?
No game Tri-Ace game requires this and the only time a bonus character was offered was in Radiata Story, in an easy bonus dungeon, and to get Lenneth from VP.
Also, god forbid a game that offers new challenges from the main content and different difficulties. :P

Didn't Freya only join in the Gate in VP2?

But either way, yes I did go overboard there for a bit. I forgot that Tri-Ace aren't the ones who get somewhat sadistic with bonus dungeons/content (they're the ones who sadistically offer powerleveling and min/maxing options for spergs that require far more effort to utilize than they're worth).

@Aeolus: I never tried to justify Kojima's convoluted theatrical reasons since I only said "the general idea is", meaning that not even the actual games take that stuff as seriously as the main narrative outside of giving them a small amount of context and relevance to them.

And again, you're missing the point; which is, that I wanted to do a play on the word Ration and make a World's of Power reference for all the cool kids who'd get it.

Nothing more. I'm not trying to criticize you, nor am I saying you're wrong, and neither am I trying to attack this series, or its writing, or its logic.

And at any rate, this joke is dead, it is no more, it has ceased to be.

...sorry, but I'm getting really worried about this game now...

You mean you weren't really worried about this the moment you heard that Tri-Ace was involved?

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?
