Forgot to mention this before but in December Square Enix released a new novel for the big mess that is the Compilation of FFVII called "Final Fantasy VII Lateral Biography Turks -The Kids Are Alright-".

It takes place shortly before Advent Children and... stuff happens. Also according to FF Wiki the novel has references to the English rock band The Who. Dunno what's that about but eh, is FFVII and people like FFVII so like Squall says: " ...Whatever"

Summary of the new FFVII novel (The LifeStream.net)
Final Fantasy VII Lateral Biography Turks -The Kids Are Alright- (FF Wiki)

I can't believe that they didn't have the pretentiousness to subtitle the novel with some Engrishy subtitle that spelled out EC or EoC with its acronym (but I guess they can't even be arsed to bother sticking with their own compilation conventions, though it's not like it would help if they did).

My only regret with FFIX was the lack of further combination skills like Steiner's/Vivi's Magic Blade attacks (well, that and the hideously slow loading, the minute long combat camera panning shenanigans, the fourth disk lockdown, Tetra Master, Trance shenanigans and its similarities to that particular show featuring monkey boys getting similar powerups, the lack of development for Armarant, and Freya, and a lack of playable Beatrix I guess). I mean, you could've had Garnet and Eiko pull off dual summons like they did for Alexander, or Zidane and Armarant pull off some sort of rivalry combo, or Freya and Quina could umm, well Freya could always stir the Gourmad's Trance pot.

Oh yeah, that reminds me. The entire S.S. Zebless arc can burn in hell.

(Well, okay. I suppose points should be given for the irony of having your 'turned into a catman' MC turned into a cat. But the rest can go die in a fire.)

Great. I was getting tired of looking at that boring and lame web site.

Still needs somebody that hasn't had a game in the last two years or will have a game by the end of this year beyond PaRappa (mascot characters that are prevalent only in Japan notwithstanding).

Chrono Cross did this feature the best.  That is all.


Also, Chrono Cross did basically everything the best ;-)

Except for individualized techs and a coherent plot (and providing a villain who's too busy waiting for you to show up to do anything villainous).

Also, the regular battle music sucked.

These "Onii-chans" are always getting laid with their "Onee-sans".

Stuff like this is why anime sucks these days, it harms the lot of it anyways.  I hate that good shows are so few and far between; "moe" has ruined anime.

Moe is pretty insufferable but it's not the only culprit in today's ruined anime. The fact that practically every anime in the last 5 years has to start in a Japanese High School is highly odorous as well.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Explored pretty much every available part of Bionis's Leg and snapped up a few key items in the process along with locating a bunch of landmarks and a few secret areas.

Next up, Colony 6.

I'm kinda looking forward to Kokoro Connect.... but I'm worried they won't take their fun idea any further than boob jokes...

On an important/unrelated note: 3RD EVA movie due out THIS November.  WOW.  That was out of no where and quite soon for a flick.  Fucking yay. :)

What do you mean 'no where'? IIRC, the 2nd EVA movie came out back in 2009. This fucker's had at least 2 full years of development, if not more.

(Incidentally, there's now a reason for an SRW L2 to exist.)

Been playing a lot of MvC2 this weekend.  On a real oldschool kick lately.  I'm finding Strider a pretty fun character to use.

Also I really hate how you can play for like 2 hours in Xenoblade and get nowhere because you got sidetracked doing quests, rebuilding, etc. Argh.  Never gonna finish the game at this rate.  I did craft some badass gems though.  Both haste and double attack are at 50%.  Not sure how that works with skills though and whether it's additive or multiplicative (my guess is the latter).

Ha ya I am having the same problem with xenoblade. At this point I pretty much only do two or three side quests in a given area and then force myself to move on. Its one of those gmes I wish I could beat, and then come back and do everything, but I know it annoyingly closes everything off at points. o and..


That's cool. Doing all the side quests tends to make you overleveled anyways. That said, you could probably start with clearing only the ones that have little clocks on their quest log entries so that you don't miss them while moving forward and then go back to pick up the ones you missed later on after you've advanced two or three regions past them so that the rewards won't net you more than a level or two.

And speaking of I've just recruited the game's Billy expy and have been making short work of the time based sidequests. (I've been sitting on this game for a while now since I haven't had the opportunity to play until recently.)

She's not black, she's just really tanned. Look, you can see her tan lines. That or its black face, but then again black face usually excludes the lips.

I think the voice acting was more an issue with writing than acting, particularly during the "laughing scene." You could hire Patrick Stewart for that part and it still wouldn't have sounded any better. If I were in charge of localization, I would have just probably cut that scene out. Death to all who insult FFX's gameplay, though.

I'll admit it. The thought of Patrick Stewart voicing Tidus for the FFX HD remake is hilarious, and I'd even bet that he could blow the previous version out of the water (well okay, maybe not completely since even John Dimaggio couldn't salvage Wakka; and I have the distinct feeling like I'm opening a can of VA worms here, but my circuitous point here is that the direction would probably screw the performance over either way).

Granted, there would be no way in hell that Squeenix would ever consider this given that this would go against Tidus's character traits and we can't possibly have that (at the very least though they wouldn't cheap out on it like Bethesda did with Oblivion).

Regardless, it's most likely that we're probably just going to get the same recordings recycled from over a decade ago.

Got around to finally watching the Hunger Games.

The ending would've been better if there really had been no winner and that the next book/movie had a different protagonist (maybe that other boy from section 12 or whatever (not the one who went to the games)). Plus it would've made more sense to throw a revolution when the oppressed gets a demonstration of how even the bone their oppressors throw them isn't worth it compared to how utterly screwed they are in the current system. As it is however it was just fiendish incompetence for the movie (at least it's not Death Race levels of incompetence).
