An impressive violin solo.

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?

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.

I think everybody needs to take a :chill: before we turn this Internet Drama into a banhammerfest.

First, the story's coming from Kotaku (well Famitsu but its getting interpreted by Kotaku) so don't forget to take your grain of salt. Second who the hell cares about SSE? The cutscenes didn't really add that much, and the adventure was kind of a resource hog for the rest of the single player content, plus Adventure Mode wasn't too bad back in the day and served as a better introduction to the gameplay/characters. And finally, this could be a matter of bad semantics. As in, the statement is probably directed more towards the people on the Brawl dev team for leaking the info rather than the Internet at large.

Seriously, you guys are getting all much ado about nothin'. Its not like they're turning this into a boobalicious CCG or freemium iOS warez, or getting abandoned outright to focus more on a failing arcade game that's half automobile infomercial, the continuing misadventures of a salty fashionesta and her magical wardrobe, or another attempt at making yet another MMO to compete with all the other MMOs they've made.

PS4 where Chaz dies instead of Alys.  "His swing never did get much better... anyway, time to kick some asses."

Meh. Alys was more of the game's Jagen anyways. Besides, I really didn't want to get stuck with those growth rates (she was for all intents and purposes like Nei from PS2 except for the level lead instead of doubling up on the leveling rate).

Of course, it would've been nice if PS2 developed its characters beyond having them show up on your doorstep saying "Hi. I want to join your party." and little else.

In regards to that, buff/debuff spells are VERY useful in SMT. One Luster Candy and one Debilitate/War Cry is enough to tip the scales overwhelmingly in your favor.

Also, Rob, I liked the 'bad end' a lot myself.

Speaking of which I've finally run afoul of
Code:
the Minotaur. First attempt ended as soon as I tried a fire spell (turns out Minotaurs repel fire). Second attempt ended with me figuring out why I don't want to have my entire party afflicted with sick and no items/spells to heal it. Third attempt ended with the Minotaur in critical (too bad my Centaur ran out of MP and couldn't keep up the Bufu pressure; I tried to switch him out and the replacement got wrecked). And my fourth attempt ended similarly despite me knowing the correct answers to the Minotaur's questions this time (my Centaur kept getting wrecked by the Minotaur's multi attacks which seemed to be entirely drawn to him).

For reference, my Centaur isn't my only Bufu user (and no, I'm not referring to my main character of the NPC support), but he has the best durability out of all my demons (nearly 200 HP) and the other Bufu user would rather be buffing defense instead (I also have a Harpy that can buff evade which is quite useful for as long as I can keep it going).

Ocean Palaces that look like the Fourth Angel from NGE

Wait which game was this. This sounds familiar.

Missed this. I'm specifically referencing the last vehicle you get in Beyond the Beyond.


...Land Buggies, Ice Drillers...

I am so ashamed of myself. Those two. And Hydrofoils. This is what I want out of PS4.

You know, thinking about PS1 (Phantasy Star 1) again, I'd kinda like to see a RPG with a female lead that isn't A) an anime~moe~kawaii~desu~blob, B) a Heavy Metal cover model clad in nothing more than a chainmail bikini, tattoos, and piercings, C) somebody like Lightning who's basically a non-character in their own fucking game and flatter than a sheet a paper, D) the OTP/another girl in the harem for the stealth main character and/or male lead, E) only optionally female and not even really anticipated as the primary choice of protagonist, F) leading a team of entirely female Jpop Idols/Charlies' Angels ripoffs, or G) in a game that will ultimately amount to soft core porn. Bonus points if you give the female a role beyond party healer, mage, or middle of the road Jill-of-All-Trades (or make being in such roles actually useful).

Basically, I want what the OP wants, i.e. The fucking moon (to go with my cheese and whine), because I just don't see this happening any time soon (outside of indie titles).

You thought Atreyu was a girl? Or are you talking about Bastian?

Atreyu.

To be fair though, I was six at the time and bad at recognizing facial features (the name didn't help either; Atreyu sounds like such a girl's name).

As for the third movie; the best way to describe it would be to imagine a highschool movie with the occasional bad special effecting at the end. Like almost none of the characters from the first two movies even bothered to show up.

Then again, even the second movie was weak (at least I figured out that Atreyu was a dude in that one), but at least it had SOME high fantasy adventure elements to it compared to 3.

If we're just going to be randomly pulling sidequests out of our asses then I'll throw down for FFVI's. Getting both broke ass espers and equipment while getting resolutions to character arcs was a solid combination. If there was any problem it was the lackadastical difficulty curve.

So MS reversed-course on indie self-publishing.  Wonder what they'll do a 180 on next...

Gotta love this PR bullshit, though:
Quote
Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development. That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox LIVE. This means self-publishing.

Doing the same thing as all your competitors only after consumers and developers bitch endlessly about your policies is so visionary!

I think at this point Microsoft really should just give up and call the fucker the XBox One-Eighty (or perhaps the Xboneatetee).
