Really nice Lightning bust (er, hips and higher) up for preorder


Definitely prefer this to the Play Arts series.  Hopefully they do more, and hopefully outside of the Nomura-based comfort zone (I was so happy when Dissidia's release meant a lot more merch from the other FF games).

^ I never understood the popularity of the original Mary Poppins film. I've always thought it was an awful, terrible film. Even when I was a little kid. I remember hating it whenever someone would put it on. So... I guess I'm saying I don't see how a sequel (of sorts) could be much worse.
Plus, it helps that Emily Blunt is somewhat attractive.

Watch Saving Mr Banks then.  I think it offers a pretty good idea behind the film and I like the sort of interpretation that the film is much more about the kid's dad than the kids and their adventures (which is much more the fun fluff of the film).

That and the music from Mary Poppins is brilliant and catchy as hell.

I love Emily Blunt, but Julie Andrews is irreplaceable as Mary.  I don't doubt Blunt can do a great job, but to me, it just won't be "the new Mary".

Before Sunset

Final Fantasy IX
Actually, I will say FF games in general do endings very well.  FF9 is totally a reward to the players, but I can't ignore FFX's powerful ending, nor the brilliance of 7's matching shots of Aeris.  The medley in FF6 is fantastic as well and a creative take on an ending which is less an epilogue than just making an escape. :P

Blair Witch Project
I wasn't crazy for the movie, but the ending is chilling af

My Fair Lady
No "I love you's" no kisses, no nothing.  Then I realized how oddly rare it is for a tale with a popular romance to go without the leads really declaring it.  It's there, but never said out-right.

Utena Movie
Just because I couldn't believe that whole end sequence (and sure, it's a happy ending!)...  I don't necessarily think this is "the best", I think I just like the surrounding circumstances: I was watching this the night gay marriage was legalized in the USA.  It was weird coming off this movie to that news. x)
Anyways, Utena is a fantastic odyssey, so why not rank it.  The TV show had a pretty epic finale too.

The Departed
I really liked how the film's side character sort of becomes its underdog.  I always like reading into it since Dignam was never really seen without the Captain, but he's obviously capable more than a right-hand man might be, and he gets the final hurrah.

They're all unique and amazing...!  (oh, dis-honourable mention goes to the secret bad ending FROM the good ending...fuck that HARD...)

Kinda why I like Undertale's too to some extent.  It's so JRPG epic, it's a bit cheesy, and it's pretty happy and sappy.  yaaay


Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Tragic, beautiful, rewarding, and can't say you'll really see that many Thanksgiving movies.  John Hughs was great at ending his films.

Can't think of many worsts... I'll have more later maybe.

You are and I'm sad it took me so long to see this.  Beautiful stuff here (and yeah the theme song by J'Nique Nicole is very lovely).
I'd like to think they "know" Emi was a big part of the NieR OST and her contribution can't be denied.  She'll be back. (she has to be) :(

Come to New York with me, Dice! You know you wanna!

Being completely honest, that actually sounds fun.  I've met one Fanner in the real world and we ate good food, I'd love doing that again. xD

I am on the verge of tears.

Time to celebrate by listening to Fantasia alla Marcia on infinite loop all day.

Mmm that artwork.  Nintendo artists make it look easy

Dang, I just realized that the Wii U doesn't really have a Zelda to call its own. That's... kind of sad. Wii U's going to be an interesting chapter in Nintendo's history.

It had like a few bright and beautiful shining stars....amidst a dark sky and a city of shining lights below.... or something.  Point is, it had some gems, but ouch, this was like watching a slow trainwreck.

Yup, it's a mobile game.  In that it just kinda looks like a cheap version of what's come before.
I mean, no big loss, I'm sure it's good fun for handheld title (I'd probably play it if it was released here) and it's great that VP is alive and well still after tri-Ace went through some sticky times.

Star Ocean: First Departure - Just got done with the trial in Van y Ille.  Man, Ilia and Ronyx. These two. You would THINK that people from a hyper advanced civilization 300 years in the future would be more skeptical of superstitions and legends relayed to them by people on a backwater medieval planet (especially after they both previously implied that Earth had out-scienced the need to believe in the existence of God), but unfortunately, that thought would be wrong.   

Good thing too. If Ronyxis was skeptical, he wouldn't have gotten his cool magic tattoos.

And with First Departure and with Ronoxis, you finally realize why "that one scene" in Star Ocean 2 was such a big deal.


Arch, that clenches it, I gotta find me a copy.

If anyone doesn't want the art book, I pay money for those!!
11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Berseria on: April 22, 2016, 11:56:57 PM
^ Definitely why I play I think.  It's cozy, like an old slipper.  That said, I still think Zesteria was an awful game to play.  I keep turning back to Graces though.

Anyways, early 2017[!] date (POLISH THAT SHIT UP, BANCO)
And a new producer is in, perfect if you think Baba was the reason for the recent slump[?] the series was in.
I just noticed the choir boy (I don't know his name and at this point I'm too lazy to look it up) has WHITE colouring at the end tips of his hair.... spoiler? I'm guessing it's a non-subtle seraphim thing or whatever i dunno.

Cool screens and art and battle deets here.

My problem with EVERY and I do mean EVERY SINGLE FUCKING PHONE GAME EVER FUCKING MADE is real simple, they control like bawls and hurt my hands after about 30 minutes. I have a large phone just for that reason, but I fucking despise having to play games on it. Put the fucking game on a goddamn non-mobile system for fucks sake. It's made already, just translate controls over and let me play on a goddamn controller like games were made to be played.

Won't lie, if the Vita or 3DS had a phone feature I'd be pretty happy!

Lordy lordy these screens....

After what I heard about the PC Port of Symphonia, I think I'd rather it just come to the PS4.

Oh shit, that's right.
I mean, Zesty didn't turn out too bad.  Such a shame fan patches fix more of their shit than the company does.

I like to think of Light's hair as the anime version of Rose Blonde

I was actually a little blue they never stuck with the darker pink they had in the first CG render.

Boss sprite!
