CITIZENS OF EARTH/ Crash error CE-XXXXXX. Launch application. Crash. Error CE-XXXXXXX. Launch application... I'm seeing a pattern here.

MASS EFFECT/ Spent 4 hours alone in the citadel talking and reading codex entries before moving on. I'm enjoying every minute of this so far.

I love hearing your Mass Effect reactions and kinda tracking the points.  Keep it up!  Let me know more cool moments! :D

Wait, wasn't he an asshole in the last game? I've always just found him annoying. A decent character to play off of Nathan, and whatever female is there, but that's it.

Sounds like every single character from Uncharted flew over your head. I don't know how that happens with someone that's into movies as much as I've seen you be.



I dunno.  I'm into videogames, but I sure bitch/talk about them more than I seem to play them these days.  Besides like...FF9 or replaying Xenoblade when I'm drunk.

Kunihiko's art translated weird into 3D, and I'm not sure why....


Anyways...

First off,

jokas

Thanks for that. x)

But yeah, I think I gave Xenoblade's cast a ton of respect at some point for pretty much working together well than being that group where everyone does something better than the other.  I think it was in the Ether Mines[?] when Shulk has a vision, and rather than "dealing with the 'burden on his own" and deal with the conflict every time, but Reyn bugs and persuades him to pipe up about it every time it happens so they can all work together to stop it.  I liked that.  Besides Riki being a slight comedic relief, I don't recall actively disliking any characters and they were all capable and smart to whatever extent (even Reyn who is the "big idiot" was actually great in that boyfriend filler for Sharla and best bud to Shulk).

I think the last big spoiler is the only one that kinda bugs me
Code:
As cool as the sight of it is, the fact the story "starts" in our solar system.  Rather, the moon orbit had Zanza and Meyneth AS HUMAN SCIENTISTS.  GODDAAMAN THEEEEMMM!!!!
Mongoosey's reviews summed it up so well that they really throw spoiler after spoiler at you, and i think that last one was a little uneccesary and a little much.

Boyhood Did you know it took 12 years to make?

Not much else to say other than I obviously agree with the guys at RedLetterMedia about the movie despite the good intentions behind the project.

And yeah, that's it.

I think that since it was this decade+ passion project is why it's getting so much recognition.  I thought it was a story about a kid's maybe-typical life, but not a terribly entertaining "coming of age story", because there wasn't much of a tale worth telling.  But it was lovely enough and worth a watch.

I Origins

Without a doubt one of the nastiest and strangest ways to die in a movie was in this film.  EWWWWW.
Anyways, a very atmospheric film that leaves no room for imagination by spelling out messages of reincarnation in the most obvious and annoying ways.  I liked the director's previous attempt "Another Earth" for being more about the "what ifs" than the spritual aspect.  Meh.  Still, it makes our "fears" fun to think about.

This is a minor thing, but Michael Pitt's lips drive me nuts.  They're huge and make his face look pouty and like he's always about to cry.

I just watched Heathers.... that was not at all what I was expecting. ..

Yeah Heathers is a rarity.

Slater is gorgeous though


EDIT: Oh, anyone else see Jon H Benjamin's live tweets of first Archer ep?  It was romantic as hell, Christian Slater was invited

But this sounds like the main story IS the fetch quests. :/

To be fair, a lot of the story in XBC came from just going forward and reaching the next check point. But that doesn't mean that we can't have good story quests. Even XBC had the occasional story advancing quest pop up like delivering lunch to Shulk, delivering water to Fiora, saving the Bionis from imminent destruction or that one where you had to chat up Melia's sister.


Essentialyl this.  XBC was basically going from cutscene to cutscene doing the same basic thing, but the conversation, the world, and somewhat addictive combat helped alieviate the 'problems' in that.  But ESPECIALLY the world, I can't remember the last time a JRPG ever bothered with such depth (granted, I think that's partly what's made Xenoblade the standout hit it has been --- that and the cutscenes, when they happen, are usually really fucking good).

I think that's why I can't be disappointed, because most of what I want from this game is already seen in the trailers.  If they make Xenoblade again and just expand on it in some ways I'll be MORE than satisfied.

I'm still psyched. Quests in XBC were easy enough to go in and out from, if they keep that kind of "do what you want" balance, I'll be satisfied.

Also I'd like to take a moment to congratulate you on your 27th post Dice.

J...just today?


But.  Um.  I agree.

And 2007! 

Binary joke.

D'oh.  I only know that one joke. "There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understanad binary and those who don't".  *cue laughter*

Code:
I think I watched that movie high though....not sure if it counts, but I felt I did the film justice

Counts?  I think it's recommended.  I do not partake, but I have seen the movies.  Have you heard Mitch Hedberg?  He's a stand-up comedian and... let's just say I bet you'd like him.

For that movie probably.  And yeah, Mitch was fantastic.  (RIP).

Pineapple Express.  Just about any line fron Danny McBride was awesome in that film.

Stardust

A sometimes cheesy and sometimes positively brilliant fantasy adapted from Neil Gaiman's book of the same name.  This movie instantly got a lot of love from me first because it's a still rarely done fantasy setting film, and second because Robert De Niro plays as a homosexual sky pirate which is completely out of his typecasting and seems to have had a lot of fun with it.  I'm particularly ecstatic about the blend and brands of "fantasy" involved in this film; magic, celestial beings, curses, royal traditions, charms, trinkets, lightning-in-a-can, etc.  The effects are lovely, the casting is great, and the creativity (a particular "corpse fight" completely blowing my mind) and humour hit in the right spot.  Very enjoyable!

EDIT: I'm sure it would 'tingle' some RPG-esque fancies in a few of you

I'm sure we have a ....similar opinion about Asbel.

But holy shit his figure is nice.  Literally, the colour in his eyes is blowing my socks off (I just wonder if it's that vibrant in person)

Not that I want to start a political discussion, but this video is too bizarre not to share:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrzD-zqWwWc

And this blithering idiot wants to be president...

She sounds drunk.... Yikes.
She's giving brunettes with glasses a bad name.....

This is real cool (and the song is cool too!).  Real time face mapping.

Hopefully if the quality of the game is subpar, less people will buy it right out of the gate and the Tales team will get the message that their games are really lacking in quality of late.

Have any of last year's launch issues with a small handful of titles stopped people?? :(

EDIT: Spoke to soon.  ALISHA DLC.  Free for 2 weeks.
http://www.abyssalchronicles.com/  :P



Probably the best that we can expect from Bandai (considering that I'm surprised they're even offering it for free for any length of time).

http://gematsu.com/2015/01/tales-zestiria-alisha-story-dlc-announced

Not that we can even expect the DLC to make it out here, let alone for free (especially since their reasons for the freeness more or less boil down to "Sorey we lied to you. Here, we've got your character right here, and you can even have her for free (for now).".

The outfit is nice though. Especially dat hat.


Hmm.  Yes, I suppose it isn't too ostentatious, besides such a flashy and self-important colouring.  I much prefer the older designs myself.  However.... What on Earth!?!?! The length of her frock is preposterous and completely unbecoming of a young accomplished woman!  Such a woman would only be seen "late after dark", I bet!  She will ruin her family and be marked for a silly girl and ridiculous flirt in all of the Highland Kingdom  SCOFF!!!
