I'll probably get back to Zeron's post a little later, but a few (non-spoiler) reactions too.

> The game's graphics look so good one minute and so bad the next just with some awkward clipping...and with whatever happened to Diana's face (that mouth of hers...).  I don't get how Akane and Junpei went from brown hair to shades of purple, but I like it...!  More importantly, I love the new character designs.  They also all look (relatively) normal; unlike Nishimura's designs, because VLR's cast look like they stepped out of a travelling circus.

>I wasn't keen on the POV style of 999 and VLR, so it's nice seeing everyone part of the action now and that said leaders aren't just the "usual suspects" (Akane, Junpei, Sigma, etc.) but the "newbies" instead.

> The controls are kind of annoying (and my Vita has kinda busted analog sticks).  But I do like the style of Escape Rooms a little better; it's been simplified nicely.

> Why is the 'dialogue skip' so random?  Sometimes it just goes to the next line of dialogue, sometimes it skips over another character's lines?  I *think* it weeds out less important dialogue, but...

> I love some of the awkward editing/scripting during the cutscenes
*someone gets stabbed*
"Oh no. You ok?"
" AUGH!!! FUCKING RUN!!!!"
Apart from that, the game still has some pretty solid writing; particularly the more light-hearted banter.

> Gab is the best character.

Earlier today I I was looking in the mirror thinking I'm long overdue for an eyebrow wax (I have a unibrow) and then I got to reflecting... For a short while I used to get my unibrow waxed, but I've decided not to do that any more. I'm keeping my unibrow. It's part of me, I like it, and deep down I've always liked it. Most people get rid of it, I'm choosing to keep it.

I don't really care about what society tells me is some superficial "beauty standard" that guys are supposed to adhere to. I'm an independent thinker, I like to do things my way (logic be damned sometimes), and I'm gonna rock my unibrow like a confident man because my brow is a little something-something that makes me me and *that* is cool

Not to dive too deep into this, but you could always just get tweezers if waxing is a (sometimes literal) pain or if it's just more convenient to pluck.

I'm way too steeped in said beauty standards, and a unibrow would not suit me. x)

Mmmm so many average to bad reviews for Star Ocean 5.... I think my collector's edition buying days are through. :p

Looks like Breath of the Wild is continuing the trend of musical easter eggs.  URL says it all.

It's been on Netflix for a while, hasn't it?  I'm assuming this final season will be added at some point.

Maybe on your fancy American Netflix but Canada is kinda often shat on with respect to what's hot. 
Dopey question. If you have an american psn account and download netflix on it in canada, would you get access to american netflix or...no?

Nein.  They're pretty good about this sort of thing, loopholes and all.
I shall wait, like the Canadian peasant I am.  But thanks for your question/concern, Agent.

After all the hubbub here and rumbling on the net, I really hope Person of Interest gets to Netflix!

Necro-ing due to demo footage of the game in motion.

I see where the production budget for Might No 9 went. >.> At least this one actually looks good in motion so far.

Wow, not bad looking at all.  Thank goodness too, I miss that 'golden era' for the series.

Berserk Musou trailer!  You see a bit of gameplay which is standard Musou...but so much blood.

And on that note, from what I've been hearing, Star Ocean 5 is going to have slow, unskippable, realtime dialogue cutscenes to go with the 'everything is in real time' gimmick of the game...excepting the regular cutscenes which are not in real time and still not skippable in any way. And this includes a few real-time dialogues, that segway into regular cutscenes, that come before battles you'll probably lose due to bullshit like a shoddy battle camera, poor AI, bullshit escort quest failure conditions (on a character who's utterly prone to ending up in escort quest failure conditions) and a swarm of enemies ready to dogpile your escort quest character in the blink of an eye.

From what I've heard, it sounds like it might be a small mercy that SO5 will be a short game.

:(


Well, I'm happy I got a spiffy looking CE to help the pain.

I once bought an actual set of real, wearable clothes for less than 3.

lol!! xD

I can't say I have but I have expensive tastes (and yes I'm poorer for it).

http://gematsu.com/2016/06/tales-berseria-introduces-shigure-melchior-first-dlc-costumes

And the DLC's already on its way. 3 bux for some goddamn clothes for Velvet. -_-

Whatever, I'll dish the extra $3 because at least she doesn't wear hobo tatters.

I don't get why they haven't given us the option to play as both zelda and link yet.

What's worse is the actual reason they gave is, once again, terribly friggen stupid (another Eiji quote at about the 5:45 mark too).

Star Ocean 2 is pretty bad with this. It takes a pretty long time before you get to actually play.
Although I just can't stay mad at the game because the beginning is so damn good that it's worth the wait.

I've gotten so good at the prologue that I know the NPCs to talk to that trigger the story line to keep going. ....it's kinda sad I guess.  Also sad is it still takes about the better part of an hour to get through.  I also usually pick Claude's side since his Laceur Arms Tournament segment is shorter. :S
