ALSO Prime!!


There are 3 distinct recorded voices, maybe 4, in the boss battle theme in this new gameplay demo trailer (OMG so hawt!). The link I have there starts at 53 seconds.

Sounds quite a bit like Emi to me. Other voices elsewhere, but that voice is unmistakably Emi Evans.

Holy shit.  It's like a video game opera or some bananas. 

I love how it combines the bullet hell from NieR but that wonky camera thing from the Drakengard finale.

I LOVE...LOOOOVE how different this looks and feels.  The minimalist look and the focus on exploration seems to be taking the ambiguity of the early Zelda titles and meshing it with Wind Waker's sense of vast chartable space.

Most impressive is that it's quite RPG-ish, so there's less ambiguity with how the Zelda series fits in the site's purview! :D
That new logo...that title.  Goddammit Nintendo, you make 'doing good' look so easy sometimes.

If you didn;t already know that Maria Bamford is a comedic genius.  Now you know.


warning: this is weird. like, real weird.

edit: I think a lot of Maria Bamford's appeal comes from what she's had to overcome.  ie. one time when she was on stage a guy heckled her and she had a nervous breakdown and had to be institutionalized and then move in with her parents. At like 37. Because she has pretty severe OCD and anxiety issues (both of which I tend to relate to) Then she made this surreal/brilliant one woman show for Super Deluxe to help her deal with all of her demons.  It's hilarious but can be brutal to watch sometimes. 

Here's all of them ever.


I full heartedly recommend her show on Netflix, Lady Dynamite.  It's, at times, scarily honest about how it talks about her condition and what she's gone through, but still manages an extremely light-heart about her life and remain outstandingly funny throughout the its freshman season.  It really works well within that Arrested Development style too, Bamford and Hurwitz work very well together.

My fav part was walking around snowy mountains with Vaan still refusing to put on a damn shirt.

(why do his abs look weird)

I think I made a friend o_o

A little while ago, I started going to the local guild because I really missed archery. I postponed this decision for the longest time, because I feared it would be mostly men, and that turned out to be mostly true. However, today we couldn't use the range for a bit because people had to use the storage rooms, and me and this other girl started talking. Turns out we have a lot in common (bow preference aside - she likes traditional stuff, I stick to recurve, but hey, atleast she doesn't shoot compound! :P). Pets (rabbits), books and series (fantasy, historical stuff), other hobbies (crochet)... We're also the ones that get the most practice in. I wonder if she likes games... I should ask next time.

One little problem, though... She's still in high school. I hope I don't scare her off when she hears my age. I mean, if she's like most people, she's estimated me at college age, 25 at most. I turn 30 this year...

Edit: Damnit, I want to go to bed soon, but I'm not tired yet because 1) I had a really good time this evening and 2) for some reason, I feel the need to contemplate every shot where I made an obvious mistake. I know I shouldn't expect too much after that long break, and the practice bow I'm using won't ever be as accurate as what I used to use, but... Man, I wish I could use the range several days a week.

There really needs to be easier ways to make friends in your 20's and 30's.  Cuz yeah I'm in a pretty crappy boat for that.
I love staying up late on a good night.  You'll sleep long enough when you're dead I say, enjoy the night!!

Already hating this job. My knee is in constant pain, my feet as usual cannot tolerate standing for more than an hour no matter what I do, and five times I was told to come in yesterday, today, and then Monday. And then get a call TONIGHT to come in tomorrow night and Saturday night. And the whole reason they hired me so quickly was because the temporary manager who is covering for the actual store manager who is on leave is going on vacation at the same time as the store's other supervisor starting from July 1st to July 25th. So they're training me to close since I'll be the only one around able to.

Kind of want to die right now.

Sorry to hear Klutz.  I had one shift where I dealt with excruciating foot pain.... you seem to be dealing with it all the time.  Take whatever advil or tylenol you need to get by and see that doctor asap.  Or come to Canada and see one for free. :D
Persevere the best you can.  We're rooting for you!

Probably the best new enemy to come from that game was the fake save point. Also the final boss' one winged angel form was pretty cool and he had some nice looking attack animations in his human form. Actually, come to think of it, 12 had a lot of cool designs, I wouldn't mind Zalera to come back in another future FF. It's also interesting how we get some previous final bosses in summon form like zeromus and exdeath.

It honestly has my favourite set of summons.  It scores 10 points higher just because it didn't involve another incarnations of Ifrits and Shivas and Titans, and lo and behold She-Ultima joins up instead.

Watch Dogs 2 Cinematic Reveal -- Ubisoft US, YouTube

Past faults aside. This is probably the most tightly put together trailer Ubisoft have dropped since AC: Revelations' E3 trailer.

My dumb butt thought this was a SLEEPING Dogs sequel for the last two days.  Nevertheless, that was definitely an impressive trailer.  I already like this new lead more than Aiden.

You aren't alone there. Sometimes I'll see or hear something that reminds me of some dumb thing I did as a teenager, and I'll quickly start mumbling nonsense to myself to block out the memory, heh.

Problem here is I still do.  I speak before I think way too much.  Usually it's comedy gold (in my mind) but every so often it's just an awkward word vomit or something.  I feel like I've said or done enough embarrassing stuff to fill a big book.

Anyways, in life news, I got a wag of the finger at work.... for dancing...and doing work.  I shit you not.  My eyes almost rolled into the back of my skull.

Your own fault for installing that pole in your office.  Hyuk hyuk hyuk....... sorry.

Nope, got nothing, that was good *high fives*

I'm sure that the systems will be improved, but it's not going to fix the rest of it. It felt like to me that they'd built this massive game world but then only the bare bones of a story to fill that in. It was all very forgettable, I can't even remember the name of the main villain, let alone his motivations.

Vayne Soridor or the Occura and the former's motivation was to rid the world of the latter by being a political asshat and eventually a megalomaniac because "Its an FF game dammit! What kind of FF game doesn't have you fighting either a god or some megalomaniac hopped up on world ending powers?". He's not even really that evil or anything, he's just maneuvering his way up the throne while dealing with his political enemies in shady ways like any good political asshat; and then all of a sudden he fu-sion-ha!s with a renegade Occura, develops a terminal case of One-Winged Angel-itis, hijacks the game's local Death Star, parks it over Rabanaste, then proceeds to wait until the protagonists show up to deal with him, his Darth Vader expy Gabranth and his bullshit Pailings. You could tell they had literally no idea what kind of endgame they wanted beyond ripping off Return of the Jedi.

How do you not write cool semi-true-semi-sarcastic gaming articles?  Because I swear you could make it work.

Man, I love how earlier gens really took more [fantastic] risks with their fighting games.

Another one I loved even though it was stupid (i.e. style> substance):

You might truly have a rock for a head then.

Also as a side note. Time doesn't fly, but it can heal wounds.

Yet my wounds run deeper than time can heal.  My pain is an abyss, a deep deep chasm of calamity, a den of deceit.  No comfort can cure it.
27  Media / General Games / Re: E3 2016: E3 2015 was better Edition. on: June 07, 2016, 07:17:47 PM

Pff. Sure, whatever. As long as you understood what I said I'm good.

I didn't understand the point, no.

XSeed is on a roll and I can't thank them enough...!

I hated the arbitrary nature of the License Board system so when the Zodiac system was explained to me, it sounded like something I'd have liked better.  Glad to see I can potentially play it soon. 

You like this hat?  :O
Well fuck you! 
You need a license! :D

Is turbo mode just the ability to speed up battles and animations?

I'm guessing yes.

As someone that played the original and thought it was pretty mediocre then played the zodiac job system version a few years later, let me say you should try this one out.  Everything that was mudane and annoying about the original is fixed in this version. 
...Someone has to say its, so even the story? :p

It started so good.  As someone who didn't beat it, what went wrong??
29  Media / General Games / Re: E3 2016: E3 2015 was better Edition. on: June 07, 2016, 09:01:25 AM

Time flies is all.

Anyways, I'm hoping for just ONE surprise I'm crazy for.  I kinda get irked with all the leaks already happening, they're like a spoiler. :P

Or one of these moments:
30  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: June 07, 2016, 12:25:22 AM
