1  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The unofficial "recommend me a game" thread. on: July 31, 2015, 01:06:02 PM
Summer semester is wrapping up for me and I get a two week break until Fall semester starts next month. I just bought a few titles via PSN today. I haven't played a video game since April/May, so I'm looking to binge one of the titles below. I'm not sure how much time I'll have to complete a game, but I'm going to do my best. Anyway here's what I picked up:

- La Pucelle Tactics (PSOne classic)
- Stella Deus: Gate of Eternity (PS2 classic)
- Record of Agarest Series War Bundle (PS3)

Thoughts?

Quick, someone kidnap Nomura and hold him hostage till the game is out.

Lol... I read that line and imagined the judges from the Voice hearing Nomura's radical changes and direction for the FFVII remake, turning around at the announcement then turning back to hiding after hearing the line he said about not making the game into a shooter or anything like that.

'Dramatic changes' and Advent Children will help shape the Final Fantasy 7 Remake

"And of course, that being said we want to clarify: Were not going to be changing it into a shooter or something like that. We are going to be bringing dramatic changes, but we want to make sure its still recognizable." ~ Tetsuya Nomura

To ATB or not to ATB that is the question.

Wow. I like the screens and gameplay so far. This is getting me stoked to get a PS4 now. If I get this game, it'll be the first DQ title I've played in decades, heh.
5  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A rant OR what bugs me about Nintendo on: July 29, 2015, 12:36:41 PM
Not to bash harshly on Nintendo, but I can imagine a ton of Zelda fans are frustrated with the development of Zelda Wii U or it's noticeable absence at this years E3. Not to mention the Metroid 3DS game that was announced that alienated Metroid fans expecting more Samus driven storylines. Nintendo frequently says that Zelda Wii U will be ready when it's ready and they don't want to rush an incomplete game which is respectable, but I tend to feel like screen updates or gameplay discussion would be kind rather than silence in between Nintendo Directs. I came across an article the other day on Forbes of all places of a write suggesting Nintendo skips Wii U for the next Zelda and immediately start on transferring it over to the NX as a launch title. This might have been mentioned in the main Zelda thread, but here's the link for anyone that's interesting in reading it: http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2015/07/27/the-case-for-nintendos-new-zelda-to-skip-the-wii-u-for-the-nx/.
6  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: The best decade for cartoons on: July 29, 2015, 11:12:25 AM
Agh, I miss those childhood days of looking forward to waking up early Saturday morning to catch the best cartoons on TV in my star wars pajamas, favorite stuffed animal with me, hot cocoa, toast and my cocker spaniel (1987-2005) waiting patiently by my side for dog food or some stimulating activity outside the family room. I watched all those shows you guys mentioned earlier. I was a big fan of MASK, Voltron, Silverhawks, GI Joe, Transformers and Visionaries in the 80s. In the 90s it was Batman ToS, Captain Planet, EXO Squad, Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers, Tailspin, Darkwing Duck, Gargoyles and more.

Like others here, in the late 90s, I started to move on to watching anime after cartoon popularity began to wane a bit here in the west. My first foray was into Robotech in the early 90s then a bunch of more adult anime like Ninja Scroll and Akira came afterwards. I collected a ton of anime in the early 2000s when the DVD boom started and busted after companies began going under after 2005. I can't tell you guys how bummed I was when I found out Bandai Entertainment didn't make it -- because for me that meant the end of bringing Gundam to the west dubbed and able to own from an affordability perspective.

Thanks to Cartoon Network's Toonami/Adult Swim time slot, I think a lot of us got exposed to some cool anime shows that have made us all lifelong fans of animation in general. Shows like Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell, I have to tip my hat to.

I prefer to watch anime dubbed, so I don't really keep up with all the simulcasts on Crunchyroll these days so I'm a bit out of touch with pop anime culture. I catch new anime nowadays on Netflix when something is released there and will buy an anime blu-ray rarely, but that's about it. But again, thanks to my childhood growing up in the 80-90s, I'll probably remain a lifelong fan of cartoons.

Was there any word of him being sick or anything? "bile duct growth" doesn't sound like a quick killer.
He was noticeably absent the last few Nintendo Directs. I think Nintendo was keeping it under wraps, so attention wasn't taken away from games or anything, but I think I read somewhere that they underestimated how serious his health condition was in. Sad loss for the gaming industry. People didn't always agree with his plans, but he was certainly an innovator and rescuer when Nintendo had been in trouble. He'll be missed.

Terminator Genisys - Decent movie. Awesome special effects/CGI. Arnold. My only complaint was the confusing timeline discussions they had arguing over which year to go back to or forward in time to stop Skynet.

Whiplash - Wow. Intense movie. Acting and editing was top notch. I can see why it won so many awards. I didn't really know the main actor, Miles Teller before this film, but now I do and it looks like his next staring role will be as Mr. Fantastic in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot coming out next month. I'm a drummer myself, so I could relate to the whole band stopping to stare at me for being off tempo or some odd cymbal fill in awkward long dramatic pauses when I was one of the top spots in percussion in middle school advanced orchestra band. I got a conductor's wand thrown at me but thankfully never a chair or a drum kicked or thrown down or yelling directly in my face. I admire the crazy dedication the actor did for his role, practicing many hours a day and playing until his fingers bleed. Blisters be damned!

If I were into conspiracy theories, I'd be convinced the game industry is toying with me.

Article: Forget about Shenmue, it'll never happen! Move on with your life!
Industry: Now on kickstarter!

Same article: Megaman will be stuck on the moon forever!
Industry: Spiritual successor!

Article: It sucks that Virtue's Last Reward ends with a cliffhanger and no sequel in sight.
Industry: Totally working on it!

Article: Dragon Quest VII is cool, but the remake will most likely not be released here, so, eh, maybe play the original?
Industry: Announcement!

Article: Looks like tri-Ace is screwed.
Industry: Guys, we're making Star Ocean 5! It's gonna be awesome!

Either I'm terrible at my job or I should figure out some way to make money from this. Like, is there any game you want? I can write an article about how it's not gonna happen and then it's totally gonna happen.

There could be an article in here about "The Rise and Fall and Rise Again of the JRPG Industry".

Here, here! This is relative to my interests.

I'm a noob gardener and my herbs are getting out of control. We've had record rain in Chicago and things are growing crazy. I spent some thyme (GET IT?!) trimming things down today. Gonna hang some herbs to dry.

Wish we had that problem in California. Here we're starting to adapt like Fremen on the Planet Arrakis. We're given credits/grants to let our grass die and replace it with native succulent plants on a drip system. We're now on mandated water restrictions and so any drop of rain is precious to us.

I have a small patch of garden myself in the backyard that gets some sun. I'm growing Japanese zucchini, bell pepper and sun gold tomatoes. I tried a strawberry plant this year for the first time, yet I'm not sure it's going to make it through the summer.
