The seasons may change but that outfit remains the same!

Shirobako actually ended up being my favorite show from Fall/Winter season, but it had a slow start.  I never really disliked it or anything but I didn't really get into it until around the halfway point.

...except for maybe Colossus, these games have never been graphical showcases.

OK, so Team ICO only made two games before this game and you already 'excepted' one of them.  And I don't actually agree with your about the other: Ico was pretty darn impressive visually for its day.  Maybe it didn't have any colossi in it but the environments and effects were quite nice.  Furthermore the way The Last Guardian has been pitched until now has heavily emphasized the visuals.  So to turn around and claim that it wasn't supposed to be a 'graphical showcase' seems disingenuous at best.

That said I actually think The Last Guardian looks great so I don't know what the hell people are complaining about.

The problem with tons of characters at once in an ARPG like this (aside from technical issues) is that with each one you add you're actually diminishing the role of the player.  This isn't like a turn-based game where you directly control everyone.  For the most part they operate independently with their own AI and the more AI party members you have the less important the character you are controlling is.  At some point the game will basically be playing itself...

My only concern now is them calling her "Aerith" all game long...blah. xS

That's her name, though ;)

Look, FFVII had a pretty crappy translation (in a lot of ways) and this is just one example of where it went wrong.  She was always meant to be Aerith.  It seems weird to me how people cling to this mistranslation.

Aeo is on to something, making Aeris a 'party guest' type of figure would make a lot of sense and help all the peeps posting the hastag #dont-level-aeris :P
I kinda admired that she did fight though, and her limit breaks weren't half bad (mainly because they were irreplaceable).  But...what's the point?

The point was that there was absolutely no indication that she was going to die.  She was treated just like any other party member up until that point, which made her death much more shocking and meaningful.

I sincerely hope they do not make her some sort of guest character.  Sure her death isn't exactly a secret anymore, but I still feel like making her more like an NPC than a real party member would cheapen the experience.

Dumps realism?  Since when did Final Fantasy games have anything to do with realism?

I think Destructoid got the headline perfect:

FFVII's pre-rendered backgrounds were indeed gorgeous but one thing I did not like about them was how small it forced a lot of the environments to be.  Going from FFVI to FFVII the dungeons got a heck of a lot smaller.

I bought one of these Qi wireless charger thingies a couple months ago but it broke after a couple months of normal use.  It was a cheap thing and not under warranty or anything so I figured whatever, but since it did break I wrote a bad review for it on Amazon describing my experience.  Then the manufacturer contacted me (literally within a couple hours of posting that review) and said they would send me a replacement for free (no need to even return the original) if I would just take down my bad review.

The system works!

Kevadu, I'm just curious, are you in fact a ginger? Your facial hair bears a striking resemblance to my own...

Ayup

And I do sympathize.  I played the game on easy just to kinda get through the tedious bits. =/
I definitely stuck around for the story, and not what it "offered" in gameplay.

Honestly the most tedious thing about Nier for me was how easy it was.  General lack of challenge even on hard.  I don't think I would want to play it on easy...

Pics or it didn't happen.

Well since you asked...

Edit: Oh god, I was doing just fine when I left the oral surgeon but now they painkillers they gave me there are starting to wear off.  It hurts, it hurts!!

What up dental implant buddy!

I hope you're feeling better today, keep taking your motrin or whatever they gave you and don't fuck around with your stitches.  From my experience, I healed surprisingly fast.

Honestly I'm feeling pretty fine.  I think getting wisdom teeth removed was much worse...

If they add a way to revive Aerith

Oh please no...
