Another version of Muramasa's Momohime figure is getting a release.  Nicer colours, meant to match (i think) the game's aesthetic.  Very lovely, up for preorder at Amiami

I'm on the "Exvius looks cool" train.  Doesn't mean it will BE cool, but it LOOKS cool.

I'm of the same opinion. I could actually see myself playing this.

I love the main cast.  They look like a parody of a bunch of FF MC designs:

(Loving that "HD Ozma" too)

Everyone.  Watch the first episode, or even the first two minutes, of Lady Dynamite (Netflix).  It's so wonderfully weird, it constantly fucks with the fourth wall, and it was done with the guy behind Arrested Development --- and oh lord the show basically is done perfectly to its beat.

Kingsglaive Screenshots.

...holy shit, CGI quality just gets better and better and I love it (rather, I'm projecting back between Advent Children and what we see here).  Naturally it would, but I guess I'm used to the Disney/Pixar CG and less CGI'd humans.

So many games I've wanted to comment on here, but have no time. T___T

Yakuza director reveals 20 percent of audience is female but wants to keep series male focused

I think the comments section provides a good look at the reasons people tend to dislike series that change to cater one audience: just keep what people like about the series without changing the vision by conforming to the demands of one demographic or it may alienate people if handled poorly, a la Ghostbusters 2016.

(Although the games are supposedly super homo erotic, but so far I only played the first game and didn't notice that.)

good lord the comments section on *anything* gender news based is getting stupider and stupider to read.
I'm out.

I would say IX. Is the last true FF in its most purest form; A solid (but somewhat slowed-paced) RPG that is unapologetically charming from the beginning to the very end. A tribute, as well as a swansong, to what FF was at its core with its original team.

We agree on something!!!!!!

Perfect weather outside... So my haps are cleaning inside all day

Same.  I was useless yesterday, so all I've been doing (besides checking forums) is doing some late-spring cleaning with the windows open.

Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking too.  Does't help the Lightning-Saga ran for for basically the entire duration of the PS3's length in getting "new adopters" it might have just left some behind (funny enough, the lack of consistency across FFs is probably why the "Fav FF" discussions are so much fun to have).  There's just little new besides FF15 and FF7-R down the line.  I really hope they can get people back, old and new players.

Did you catch the FF disease?
“Around that time, I realized that among fans as well, there are people who’ve caught FF disease,” Tabata said.

4Gamer asked what exactly Final Fantasy disease was, and Tabata replied, “It refers to people within the company who can’t imagine anything other than their own view of Final Fantasy. Since the root is a strong self-affirmation, one’s own view of Final Fantasy takes more priority than the team’s success. If that view of Final Fantasy isn’t fulfilled, then they’re convinced that it’s bad for Final Fantasy. They think, ‘Since Final Fantasy is a special team, then we are also special because we are making it. When the new Final Fantasy comes out, everybody is going to be so into it.’ But that’s not the reality of the situation, is it?”

Oh and
Most college-aged people haven't played FF.

Back on Xenoblade X for a minute.  Have you ever refused a video game request only to send you into an infinite loop of "will you please join"?  Not Xeno X!  They pull a double negative on you.

Haruhi's Opening (Bouken no Deshou Deshou_ is, IMO, way better as a jazz tune than a happy J-pop tune.


We...agree? :D

EDIT: should posted a link

Yeah, Haruhi is probably only my favorite anime ever, so yes.

I honestly still dote on the idea of a third season.
I...like.... *never* do that for anime.

Argh, all these gifs of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress look amazing!!  I really love the older anime look too.  Any thoughts on it from peeps here?s

Got a knee brace and crutches at urgent care today. Currently debating whether or not I want to brave the stairs to go grab Okami HD from PSN's $5 Flash Sale.

Duuude.  Hope you're okay, that sounds like butt for sure.  But obviously the best thing to do is to park it down and play games.

Perfect advice for most injuries.

Takes your mind off it. :D
And as social media rep for RPGFan and not a doctor, I must do what I can. ;P

But when I got an [infected] in-grown toenail, that's basically all I could do.  I sure didn't feel like 'walking it off'. :S

Borderlands...??  I'm sure that's an RPG played mostly by people who don't like typical RPGs.  I think.  I dunno.  Some peeps on Twitter were complaining about the visual novels we added to the "30 Essential RPGs" list.  Frankly, game genres isn't much fun to talk about for me beyond establishing what a new IP might be.

I don't really consider Zelda an RPG-RPG, but I say "good enough" and find it fun and a little funny we cover it.
