So I just finished season 2 of Sword Art Online (SAO) and god did it suck.
A full 12 episode of suck.

Complete cardboard villain and magical god interventions plot powered bullshit stupid non-blood related sis-con NTR story.

I agree with everything you said except the NTR part.  Where the heck was there any NTR?

Honestly, when they first announced a SAO anime I had just assumed they were only going to do the Aincrad story.  There was plenty of material, lots of stuff they skipped or glossed over.  The Alfheim arc (which is easily the worst part of the whole series) was bad enough when I read it in book form, but somehow comes across even worse as an anime.  Just...why...

Oh man, you had to go and ask this question while I'm travelling.  If I was at home I'm sure I could dig a few gems out of my multiple bookshelves full of anime DVDs...

But here's one off the top of my head:  Here is Greenwood.  This obscure 6 episode OVA is one of the funniest damn things I've ever seen.

Not exactly obscure, but difficult to find thanks to the giant licensing kerfuffle would be the original Macross series.  No, Robotech does not count.  Harmony Gold can go fuck themselves.  The AnimEigo version is good if you can actually find it.

Why do you think I'm still rocking a Kefka avatar after all these years?  Of course FFVI is great!  I can't think of another RPG with the same kind of scope, sense of adventure, and great characters.  Maybe the Kiseki series if you look at the series as a whole.

My only real criticism is that it's so easy.  There are so many ways to break the game but no enemies challenging enough to require them.

Also had the weirdest fucking nightmare that was a mixture of that anime Chihayafuru and Corpse Party.

That sounds weirdly awesome.

Been working on my PSP/Vita backlog (I have backlogs for every system...).  Mostly been focusing on Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time lately.  I think I've mentioned this before but this is my first Growlanser game so I wasn't quite sure what to expect.  Thus far I've found it both quite addictive and incredibly frustrating.  The addictiveness stems from the combat system, upgrade system, and occasionally the story (though sometimes it advances at such a breakneck pace I don't know what's what).  The frustration, on the other hand, stems from poorly explained bullshit mission objectives/parameters combined with a lack of goddamn save points.

Look, I don't mind a challenge.  In fact I like a challenge.  I just want to know what is going to make me fail a mission ahead of time instead of having to figure that out by trail and error.  And if I do fail because of that then I want the opportunity to retry a mission without having to go back and trek through a forest fighting minor battles for half an hour first.  I guess I could deal with the first problem if it wasn't for the second, but the combination of the two is a killer.  Withholding save points is unforgivable this day and age.  Or at least have a retry mission option or something.

Heck, there was one time when I was supposed to escort a merchant back to my little town to setup shop and immediately when the mission started I accidentally took a step back and went to the previous screen.  Instant game over.  For walking off a fucking screen (f you're going to give a game over for something like that why even let the player do it?).  Of course there was no save point before this mission, so I had to work my way back there and do it again.  Then somehow (don't ask me how...) I accidentally walked the screen a second time...I was about ready to chuck my Vita at a wall or something.

Hahahahaha

As a male with an interest in feminism of the sane variety I can feel your pain.  This reminds me of some pseudo-feminist I saw on a message board claiming that missiles and swords are phallic-shaped as a sign of male domination.

If your dick is shaped like a sword you've got problems.

Be reasonable, the point isn't to be accurate, it's to demonstrate THE OPPRESSSSION.  Much like the whole 'skyscrapers = penis symbol' thing.

Sorry, maybe it didn't come across well but I was just making fun of the tendency of people to over-interpret things as being phallic.  If all it takes is one dimension being longer than the others then no wonder it's so easy to find phallic symbols everywhere you look...

Guys, I was talking to my friend in New Zealand.  It's already December 22nd there and the world hasn't ended. What gives?

That doesn't count, we need to wait until the Mayans' time zone(s) get to tomorrow.

Maybe the apocalypse is on GMT?

1991  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: December 21, 2012, 01:39:10 AM
combat looks exactly the same as 13/13-2 but with one character -_-

Except the two defining characteristics of FFXIII's combat system are the paradigm shifts and the stagger system, neither of which works at all when you only have one character.  It may look similar, but I seriously doubt it plays the same (and if it does then S-E are even bigger idiots than I thought.
1992  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: December 20, 2012, 12:32:23 PM
Why does this game exist?  I completely fail to understand what S-E is thinking.  People who liked XIII (I don't understand them, but they exist) aren't going to want a completely different kind of gameplay in the third game.  People who hated XIII and didn't play/finish it or XIII-2 aren't going to jump in at this point because they're not going to have a clue what's going on.  XIII-2 didn't sell even close to what XIII did so there are a lot of those people.

Lightning is a terrible character and I find S-E's completely insistence on pushing her in everything they make these days to be baffling.  She's not Cloud no matter how much they wish she was (mind you I don't think Cloud is a very good character either, but he is at least genuinely popular rather than simply manufactured to be as such).  Not to mention that outfit...even by JRPG standards it is completely bizarre and impractical.  Such a complete mish-mash of themes...it's like they grabbed a bunch of crap from the fetish store with their eyes closed and insisted that Lightning wear all of it...at the same time.

S-E, stop milking this crap and localize Type-0.

In a move that surprised precisely no one, THQ finally went and declared bankruptcy.

http://www.destructoid.com/mass-effect-and-more-attacked-over-school-shooting-240657.phtml

So CNN directs an angry mob to the wrong person's Facebook account and the mob notices that person (the wrong person...) liked Mass Effect.  Since it's obvious that liking a video game is indisputable evidence that the game is the sole motivating factor behind any horrible acts of violence you (or in this case, someone else...) commit, the angry mob starts  harassing Bioware telling them to burn in hell.

Yup, this is where society is at.
