Understandable mix up on that one.

Thomas Middleditch can probably be thrown in there soon with the way he's typecasted (same meek, daresay 'wussy' disposition).

*sigh* I got paged by sad chef. :( 
I sorta explained it  a bit to help your "fuuuu"-ing

Don Hertzfeldt, a well-known animator (in certain circles) takes on the Simpsons couch gag; first by referencing 'old school Simpsons', then advancing into the far, far future where we have Exo-skulls and episodes zapped into our minds, and more need for.... being extremely straight forward as blob-toons.

I do like Bart Blob.  I think he gets me.

Artistically, he can be weird, but then bursts into bizarre with a 'sprinkle' of poignancy (like the "I'll never forget you" line).

Here's a more popular toon he's done (as well as shorter):

Anything will do though.  He's got some imagination

I don't, because I'm terrified of the truth.


Truth = I have been a raging asshole to a lot of you in the past and for this I am truly sorry.

Totally could say something here, but I won't, and I'll let it lie, and walk away

I remember being a prick when I was younger.  Never full-on troll-level asshole, and I think those people are the worst

^ I'm still waiting Dice...

By some small coincidence, I'm wearing the comfy ones right now...These will never be given away!!!!!
Oh wait or does that post assume you already have a pair of mine?  Uh oh.

I think I stilled typed with ^___^ these before the site crashed and we lost all the forum.  My new stuff (ie 2006+) ain't that bad; I'm still annoying and opinionated on some lousy games.
I kno my early gamefaqs talk was liek this tho.  U kno what I mean???? lol.

So all this talk of Sephiroth makes me curious if he was [biologically] crazy from the start or developed it naturally from some bad grape-vining from being told he was a descendant of the Ancients (ie; Jenova) when he isn't... Just a human/virus hybrid with a lot of power.  I'm with Cyril though, I don't think the "alien" in this case is a bad trope, just slightly derivative given how Chrono Trigger *just* tackled that plot two years prior (iirc), but not a bad one.  And quite frankly, the implications surrounding it are just as great since Jenova isn't even the *sole* antagonist in this and there's a bigger story at hand.

...Eugh.  Dear lord, imagine making love to this man (with the best/worst concept art ever).



= I love how strange things are after Midgar: You hit up a friendly Chocobo Farm and get chased by a massive-sized snake (...then see it gruesomely impaled less than a minute later)

= I hate talking about Sephiroth as a "man in black cape".  It's a coat, dammit!

= As much fun as it is to make fun of Tetsuya Nomura's designs, I think he did alright with FF7 and 8.  Here, let's look at Seph!
First off, I love that his belt is the same as Cloud's (I assume it's from SOLDIER), I like that his 'armor' takes medieval cues but stays very modern, and finally, I love that his blade looks like its been stained in blood.  Or perhaps it was a conscious decision to show the main party using a "blue shadow" colour scheme, while Sephiroth has 'red' in the shadows. Because red is an evil colour.

But dear lord his anime look is starting to get dated.  He looks like a 90's CLAMP character with "V"-pointy chin and super-broad shoulders.  Plus the leather straps across his chest are odd.  
The main party looks great though; they have a great variety with respects to their design (WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED FF15?!  WHAT HAPP--) that beautifully coincide with the game's modern atmosphere.

= Is it just me or is protecting Fort Condor a waste of time ....and money?
...Love the song that plays there though.  Very mysterious.

= I fucking hate the Rufus parade and any mini-game surrounding it.  From doing CPR (so boring) to the really shitty mechanics in joining the parade.  

= On the other hand, I love the CG cutscene that shows all of Junon and how it makes sense of why the tiny town (where Priscilla and the dolphin is) is so dark. I mean, it's hidden under a giant airship runway (you can just barely make out the lights from the houses).  
Once again it feels like a lot of love went into creating places in this game.

= I like just running into the Turks from time to time.  I just find them a great enemy; they're cool as ice, they're relentless and mean, but really it's just because duty calls (they fall in love and go on vacation and all that jazz).  
I also love their style: When exiting battle, Rude checks his watch and simply walks off like nothing happened.

= Things that wouldn't translate into an HD/Remake Version: Red on 'two legs'. Mind you, for how serious the second half of the boat ride is, the comedy in a tough-badass like Berret wearing a dorky sailor outfit is simply perfect.


= Heidegger: "Alright we've arrived at Costa de Sol!"
Rufus: "The ride felt strange.  Everything okay?"
Heidegger: "Well, we've mysteriously lost most of the crew in the cargo hold due to bizarre circumstances. ...Oh, and Sephiroth was on board and---"
Rufus: "Yeahyea shut the fuck up.  Let's go".
Heidegger: "HAARRHARHAH..HAR... ok...  ... ... ..." *rage push soldiers into the water*

= Did anyone else wish Costa de Sol was real??  I love that the song has a "lobby"-esque sound to it (or like you're listening to a cheesy travel agency video).
*Hasn't been near a beach in 10 years* :(



Now through the mountains to chase the man in the black....coat.  

Till next time

Speaking of exercise, I've been bad. Between a lump of odd work hours, my gym partner being a fucking flake, and destiny sucking away free time, I've missed about a month of gym visits. Went back yesterday and am on the way there now. Trying to decide on legs or back today, such a dilemma.

Rough to get back into the floor.  Channel some Dice though! SHE NEEDS NO PARTNER.  
LONE WOLF, OOH-HA-HA

I also wear some awesome yoga pants, I recommend channeling that too... those things are divine.

Got a few of those, dunno if it's the ones you want

I am getting a nice collection of reactionary gifs though.  I'm oddly happy about it.

EDIT: THE WINNER

Lunar: SSH...

Argh.  I never liked the old style games (I have a thing against explicitly or very 'classic'-styled games).  But I think the PSP version might be worth me checking out one day.  I kinda miss parts of it.

Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright

I just finished chapter 4 last night. Holy shit.

I thought this game was dark for Professor Layton, now I think it's dark even for PHOENIX WRIGHT. Like, I'd be weary of recommending the game to little kids for fear of it giving them nightmares. The end of chapter 4 was really INTENSE. I got choked up, I held my breath, I got choked up again, and then I kind of wanted to scream at the game. It was certainly a wild ride.

It's actually made me realize why I've stopped putting story above gameplay this year. It's because I had given up. It has been SO long since I've played a game with a truly great story, but PL vs. PW really nails it on story.

I also want to echo Dice about how great the music is. Not only is the music excellent, but there's a huge amount of it. Especially in the trials.

I'm sad that I really put this on the back burner (won't lie, court trials kinda burn me out, they're pretty long and I get so annoyed losing 'points' because I present right evidence at the wrong-freaking-statement).  That and between my LP of FF7 and getting distracted by Theatrhythm (for some reason; not like I can beat most Ultimate Level stages without taking oodles of damage).... Poor Prof Layton.  MUST PLAY AGAIN.

I think the P.E teacher might be a British specific joke. Here ex-army personal who work in schools are 99% P.E teachers, hence his disbelief that he is a Maths teacher.


Yeah the reaction from Gaf on that joke was pretty lost (many jumping to it being a racist thing [physical activity = a black thing] than a 'soldier thing'). 

IIRC the 'soldier-hating' was just 'cause the Doctor doesn't like them or guns, right?

I think the P.E teacher might be a British specific joke. Here ex-army personal who work in schools are 99% P.E teachers, hence his disbelief that he is a Maths teacher.

Ah...
Here in America, P.E teachers are old pedophiles.

(Fun fact, my primary school P.E teacher was arrested and jailed due to touching young boys)
(Following fact, I guess I wasn't his type)

Or lesbians, according to Clueless.  And my high school PE teacher.
... Either way, the PE joke is *still* terribly lost on us non-British aliens.

One of my favorite win quotes.  Gaius won it.

I have some severe problems with the true ending (which I pointed out on one of the last pages), but I agree.  Despite absolutely loathing her at first I grew to like her.  I think she's fun, especially in her interactions with the older party members (Rowen and Gaius).  Gaius gets all big brother-y and Rowen just teases her constantly and it's amazing.

I *loved* your analysis of the true vs. good ending and really appreciate both in the end.  I'd prefer the 'good' ending as canon, in fact.  But I respect the hell out of the nobility displayed in the true ending, I think it's the decision that, if Ludger is the 'Tales hero' he is, it's what he would have picked.

Code:
I didn't really shine to Elle besides in the occasional skit, but I loved seeing her alive and well, and really living it up.  ...questionable taste in fashion aside.

I'm surprised and simultaneously impressed and depressed how many I recognized (not too hard though, a lot of FFV poked out, for one).  Ah well, love the clusterfuck of colours!



This crossover also simlutaneously makes the most sense and least sense.  It makes no sense because of the two shows picked, but the most sense because of how they react to the situation.  Brilliant

Dog vs. Mantis.


Double jointed like a...fucking....FOX.


Saved it, then killed it
