Even at its worst, the Hawaii heat wasn't that bad because it's a tropical climate. 

:(

haps:

HavingExperiencing a bit of a fruit fly incident.

I hate fruit flies.  I also hate flies in general.  Three times this summer they've flown into my drink.  What a waste of a drink and their life.

I was looking at some of the more recent Dissidia images when I noticed something.  In the image depicting Terra Branford from FF VI, she is depicted with green hair.  She's supposed to be a blonde.  When did they change this?

Her standard in-game appearance is the blonde version:


A lot of her chibi appearances (Theatrhythm, World of FF) switch her back to green to match the sprite (and, my theory, to add some hair colour to the cast because from Bartz on you get Brunette, Blonde, Blonde, Brunette, Blonde, Blonde, Blonde, and Blonde, and c-c-combo breaker Lightning has Pink hair).

Honestly the older Noctis and Kingsglaive additions actually got me more excited than just the [main] game itself so far.  I don't think any FF has attempted such a bold time skip, so I'm curious to see how they roll with it.

Definitely prefer the facial hair Noctis.

What do you think of all the Chapter 0 stuff?

I'm pretty neutral to the whole thing.

I played Mario Kart 8 at a bowling alley for 4 bucks....1 race.

WHAT!?

Arvis' response made me lol.  Yeah, I gotta say, there's a lot to "what" in what Agent said.
8  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / #7favfilms is trending right now. So what's your 7favfilms? on: August 15, 2016, 08:20:44 PM
Mine:
(1) Before Sunset
(2) Ingluorious Basterds
(3) Mad Max: Fury Road
(4) Back to the Future II
(5) Dazed and Confused
(6) In The Loop
(7) Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Honourable Mentions:
> The Silence of the Lambs (would have been there if Mads Mikkelsen's performance in TV Hannibal didn't make me think twice)
> Guy Ritchie's Snatch/Lock, Stock (couldn't pick) (hell, throw Layer Cake in there too for good measure)
> Shawshank Redemption (didn't want to waste a spot on an obviously fantastic film)
> Trainspotting (it's not an easy watch sometimes, but ranks just about everywhere else)
> Just about any John Hughs film, which I watch all the time but doesn't quite hit the tippy-tippy-top.
> Ghibli/Disney, blah blah blah.  A lot of their titles hold a fond space in my heart.
> D2 The Mighty Ducks

Trails of Cold Steel

(1) If I play one more JRPG with a line of dialogue saying something about "monsters behaving strangely" I'm going to scream.

(2) This series is way too good at getting you attached to negligible NPCs you probably won't encounter outside their particular chapter and I haven't decided if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

(3) I like Rean's character a lot. I also like Alisa's character a lot. I still think they make a terrible pairing. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it just doesn't feel like they were written with a romance in mind, making the whole tease the game puts on feel really forced.

(1) I giggled. x)  Yeah, I don't know why, maybe because they're dumber or easy targets... but if monsters are acting up you know evil forces are too for no discernable reason. :P

(2) Definitely. o_o

(3) Especially following an act like Estelle and Joshua and their banter.

You managed to make me feel good about not having him in my party.

I want to be that fit and lively older guy that a young buck can look up to and think, "Yeah, I want to be like him when I grow up."


You got this, bro!
Fuck that, I wanna be that gigantic old fuck that guys look at and say "What are you on?" and I say "Level 80 in FFXIV" then go bench 400 pounds.

My kind of hero!

I wrote up a spiel, but I'm tl;dr-ing it.

SD: Cute!  But they barely have limbs and care barely emote more than this kind of face  :<

Normal-ish: Look very good, but they're such a boring Nomura design they're completely forgettable.  If someone was parodying his style, these would be the designs.

Finally got off my butt and completed the True Pascifist ending in Undertale. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

So good.  So damn good.

Easily one of my favorite gaming experiences in recent years even with the hype under it, it still caught me by surprise. :)

I bought South Park Stick of Truth after the RPGFan podcast basically bragged about it for an hour.  I haven't stopped giggling since I turned it on.  It's a pretty okay battle system and the fact I honestly feel like I'm "playing an episode" is really something too.

Some spoilers, most vague.

> omg can that title font be any cooler??  #JustDesignerThings #FontsAreSexy

> Teams: Goonies, Degrassi, and Suburban Noire.  I love that each take you for a ride.

> These kids can ACT.  They even put on an Aussie accent way better than I ever have and El's scream is perfectly haunting! You go girl.

> The music is fantastic.  Love that old 80s synth style (which is a still living musical genre more enduring than I'd have ever thought)

> Dustin is *always*right*.  Seriously, it's dangerous to go alone, take Dustin with you. 

> What I love is this show combines alternate dimensions, psychics, aliens, and just a teeny-weeny bit of magic and does it surprisingly well.... Not sure the "mythology" in the series really adds up, but it's still a lot of fun and the "Silent Hill-verse" is a cool idea!

> Why when a tv show or movie needs someone to bleed, who do they always cut their palm!?  The arm, or leg even, but not a part of you where the wound is gonna keep opening and closing!!!

> MVP might actually have to go to Steve. Mutherfucker swung that bat like a superstar and he wasn't the typical jerk-face to make the love triangle choice an easy choice.  The Degrassi Group also get my vote for the 'most improved' category as far as their plot goes. 

> The bigger mystery is obviously Will and his champion-level Hide and Seek skills.

> Eleven was pretty damn cool.   I didn't think much of her at first, typical weirdo telepathic plot... but I do like it as a story of her trying to be normal while kicking ass and, almost literally, punishing her demons.  The best stuff with her definitely happens later on, but boy is it worth it.

> I love how useless Mike and Nancy's Dad is.  The show totally makes a conscious effort to make him useless any time he has a line to say by literally adding nothing to say each time.  Wasn't keen on the mum either besides trying to get involved in things... and she really doesn't at all, I have no idea what the point of her was beyond 'doting'. 

> The show is very good with build-up, getting you to slowly accept its ideas that a crazy "sci-fi thing" is happening, how insane it all sounds, and at what point you need to make that leap of faith that it might all be true.  I do like how all parties finally get together after enough of the weird shit has finally happened to finally work together on solving their shared dilemma.

> Poor Barb.  She really gets shit on the worst.  Worst outfit (but pretty face under those unflattering turtle necks), the best intentions (which were wrong because Steve is a pretty stellar fella), and meets a nasty conclusion.  As much as I love Nancy, she was only an 'okay' friend back!

> HI I'M NANCY, I'M GONNA GO IN THIS CREEPY WET TUNNEL BECAUSE IT'S PROBABLY FINE.

> I love when Dustin calls the teacher for information on Sensory Deprivation Tanks.... probably because Google hasn't been invented yet.

> GIMME SEASON 2.
