The convenience of flying is entirely dependent on how far you're traveling...

I live in Seattle but do occasionally like to visit my folks back in Connecticut.  I can get there in a few hours flying.  Driving would take a week, one way.  That's not very convenient.  And that's not even on the save level as all the trips I've taken to Europe or Asia...

Basically if you think driving is more convenient it means you're not going very far.  There's a whole world out there.

Uh, I have long been of the opinion that Seven was easily the worst piece of crap in the whole franchise...I can't imagine recommending it to anyone for any reason.

Honestly if you don't mind some really old animation I think the original series is a good place to start.  By which I mean the actual original series, not the abomination that is "Robotech".

Frontier is OK, but it feels mostly like a rehash of older themes in a more modern package.  It doesn't particularly stand out but it's not bad.

I feel like Macross Zero doesn't get enough love.  It's definitely not typical Macross but it's interesting and the animation is still stunningly beautiful even today.  It's also short so there's not much investment.  Though it's the sort of prequel that doesn't mean much if you aren't familiar with the franchise to some degree already so I wouldn't necessarily start there.

Sakura-con day 1

Wait, what you mean it's only day 1?!  I thought were on at least day 3 by now.  How many days is this thing?

Staff life is crazy.

(but still fun)

If the 'leaked' photos of thr NX controller are real it looks like an ergonomic nightmare.

Let us all pray that they're not.

I ask because she was included in Aeolus' Demure Female White Mage Archetype essay a few posts back.  And I was like "Is Tifa a healer?  Wait, is she DEMURE!?"

And I was wondering if everyone considered her demure, because I never have.

Nah, I had the exact same reaction to that post.  I didn't feel like arguing the point, though, so I didn't say anything...

I've never been to church...

...and I don't feel like I'm missing much.

There's a forum again!

I did like Erased, but the last couple eps left me pretty disappointed.  First there was

Code:
Obvious villain who was so incredibly obvious that literally the only thing keeping you from naming him as the villain right away was the nagging suspicion in your mind that there's no way the writers could have made it that obvious.  But no, it turns out they really did make it that obvious...

Followed by

Code:
Utterly pointless amnesia.  The main character forgets everything and then remembers everything in the same episode!  Just to build more melodrama.

I have very little confidence that the conclusion will be very satisfying at this rate...

Speaking of anime cons, Sakura-con is next week and I'm working as a Japanese guest liaison again.  Should be fun.

PS: They give me a free hotel room ;)  They might not pay any money but the perks are nice.

PPS: I would drink with you, Dice.

Both those pics are pretty great... honestly I remember some stuff in FF12 that felt pretty awe inspiring but never felt like it was noticed a lot, for instance, Pharos at Ridorana..



My sense is that is perhaps because it was so late in the game and lots of people just nver saw it.

Salikawood and the Viera home-world was sorta nice as well.please

I suspect its less that nobody made it to the Pharos, so much as the things people remember about the Pharos are the ridiculously long climb, the extra levels of bullshit added specifically to the dungeons chests (on top of the usual shenanigans) and the bosses, both story and postgame (especially Cid and Yizmat).

But I liked the Pharos...

I guess maybe they were atypical for a FF game and not really what people were expecting/hoping for, but from a pure dungeon-crawling perspecive FF12 was pretty fun.

So no discussion at all about the Playstation VR?

I don't think anyone expected it to be cheap but a peripheral that costs more than the system (and still requires yet more peripherals like the camera to work properly...) is still a tough pill to swallow...

Also I still need to actually get a PS4...

You guys are missing the point.  Days are shorter in the winter and there's nothing you can do to your clocks to change that.  The motivation behind DST was more along the line that if you didn't do it the sun would rise really early in the summer, so you might as well move things by an hour and have more light in the evening.

Not that I support the practice, mind you, but that was the thought behind it.  Again winter is standard time, it's changed for the summer.

I don't mind DST, but that's probably thanks to the country I live in. No DST means sun setting before 4 PM in winter. Okay, the transition is still not fun, but I manage by adjusting my sleep schedule two weeks in advance.

But winter is standard time.  It's the summer that's 'savings' time.
