Rabbit Island.  It's around Japan....go figure.


I recommend reading the history of Okunoshima instead of just being happy with Japan being random. It's fairly interesting.

Brief/Vague History with Dice
iirc they did testing there I think.  Then shut down, now the locals are bunny rabbits.

Love the addition of Alt Samus outfits (I hate her Zero Suit to be honest, it's like a blue-bubblegum condom).

70K isn't that bad. At least the game will be profitable if anything.

I was gonna say; isn't that still a pretty sizeable portion of buyers compared to how many Wii U console sales there are?

I definitely think they should have gone more "all out" with the characters in there.  When a game series has as long a history as it does, it does seem weird (or terribly convenient for DLC) to really only include heavy-hitters from OoT, TP, and SS.

Import reviews do say that, despite flaws, it's a good love letter to fans of the series.

= I love Muzet and I don't know why.  I guess the general nonchalance.  Or that she's a normal person but with her emotions expressed at 50% of the usual bravado.  She also feels like the most traditional mage (and her partner assist ability is pretty handy).

= Elize has gone from one of my least favorite characters to my most favourite.  She's so lovely now.  Probably a good idea, both for plot development of the youngest cast member, but also because old Elize and childish Elle would have been...just a BIIIT TOO MUUCH.

= On that note, I *love* getting extra scenes for doing character quests.  Cool idea!

= I also like how quests seem to divide the party.  Jude x Milla, Rowen x Elize, and Leia x Alvin (the better 'ship' for dear Leia, IMO)

= I forgot how big (and empty) Rieze Maxia is.... For the sake of creating "quick travel" shortcuts, I did a marathon of the continent....zzZZZzz.

= Huh... I guess I missed the plot point where Rieze and Elympios were connected by a trip on a ship [in the new world?].

= I'm willing to buy into a father-daughter relationship between the 20-year-old aspiring chef Ludger and mystical waif Elle... but I'm certainly not feeling it.  A bad combination of Ludger's unfortunate muteness and Elle's squeaky anime brat voice is working against me chalking up their relationship toward being anything but contrived.

= Also, while I'm appreciating the "what if" plots of the alternate dimensions, the main plot is a bit too "magical" and "conveniently magical" for me to really enjoy as well.

= FUCK OFF NOVA, I KNOW I'M FUCKING RICH AND I'LL PAY YOU BACK SOON.  She's more annoying than the debt system.  So far the Debt System has provided few problems to pay off since the game is pretty happy to throw money at you otherwise.

I'm abstaining from answering that question on account of not being 100% up to speed of the rules of this board

Let's just assume you were fortunate to have watched the film in theatres --- but really, for the sake of film discussion, are those details important? :)

Looking forward to seeing the films myself!
36  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: August 22, 2014, 02:58:03 PM
^ The show had some of the best adventures, and some of the most poignant television I've ever seen.  While I think, overall, Simpsons (in its first maybe 12 seasons) was stronger, comedy-wise --- I think Futurama was the much better adventure able to evoke way more imagination and feeling.

Legend of Korra

= We end on quite a sad note it seems.  Her poisoned hallucination and the air nomads acting in the "avatar name" seem to suggest that...perhaps Korra *isn't* needed anymore.  Poor girl teared up at the end.  But I'd like to think that is the next thing for Korra, to find a meaning of birth outside of "being the Avatar".  ...Or of course, I'm 1000% wrong. :)

= Seriously.  Korra x Asami have been great together.  And I love Asami, she really deserves/ed more screentime.

= Awesome air fight; just enough call-back to Ozai and Aang final showdown, but with an interesting reversal.  Korra was the one with the fire fight, and Zaheer was the "evil Aang" airbender

= Oh my god, the worst/BEST death in the series.  P'li got a headshot... on herself.  Easily the most brutal death in the entire show and the one the creators "showed the least" of (no SFX, no proper visual).

= Bolin can lava bend!  Beautiful conclusion to his attempt at metal bending and a perfect balance to the rest of his fire-bending family.

= I'm really glad they gave Jenora a full hair cut.  I would have been annoyed if they didn't to keep her 'looking cute'.  I loved that she looked a lot like a female-Aang.

85 year old chooses to end her life before dementia kicks in to spare herself the indignity.

After seeing what dementia can do.... hell, I'd do it too.

Rabbit Island.  It's around Japan....go figure.

Disturbing gif of Beyonce(?) pooping out a chicken.

39  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: August 22, 2014, 01:51:02 AM
Watched Ninja Turtles.  It was bizarre in a word....not terrible I suppose. To be honest, the original 90's version wouldn't fly these days.

Thinking about it, a lot of movies made in the 90s wouldn't fly today (i.e.; it's "blockbuser-material or bust")

I can't get used to the pronunciation of Ludger. I went to a school with the same name and that one sure as heel didn't rhyme with booger!

Yeah, it almost feels like a reaaally bad anglicized version of the real name.

Anyways.  Jude's character chapter 2....Maaan. 
A tip: Let him stay behind.

More Thoughts

= To go with Klutz' response, I'm sure completionists will go crazy over this game (bad crazy)

= I put the party hat over Alvin's package and it looks awesome with him in spandex.  MANSERVICE.

= Elize is awesome!  She no longer sound like a moe-moe-anime-ugyuuuuu but like a real young girl!!

= I hate Farah's Eternia outfit.... but goddamn right I'll have Leia wear it for some ToE battle theme!!!

= Ludger [Loo-ger] in basketball gear is surprisingly awesome.  He looks like he plays for the LA Lakers.

= Anyone else having trouble with Linked Arts?  Not necessarily pulling them off, but I find it reaallly tough to switch between three types of main weapons for Ludger and get the grip of its skills and who is better linked with one weapon set than others.  I keep getting confused.  :(

= Despite the recycled assets, I'm amazed how different Xill2 feels to Xill1.  
Tales of Xillia 2: More to do; Less annoying characters!

= Alt Milla = Upped jiggle physics?

= Alt Milla has the best clothes.  And Minae Noji still has the least "voice acting" kind of voice.  And I really like it for that seeing how often VAs can feel recycled when you game or watch anything animated for a long enough time

= I. Hate. The. Third. Tales. Artist.  Shit, Cloud's (FF7) hair makes more sense than this.  It sucks because I love the creativity, most of the time, but s/he falls into a few annoying pitfalls in a lot of designs.  For one, and for whatever reason, seems to imbue feline features into everything, use stupid criss-cross bangs that can't happen in real life, and loves using geometric shapes as part of organic designs (Ludger's Super Saiyan Mode applies as well as Bisley's peculiar eyebrows and douchebag facial hair).
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Trails in the Sky FC PC release July 29th on: August 20, 2014, 10:10:27 PM
FC literally plays out like the first part of a book.  A lot of world building, but a lot less happening to the grand scheme of things besides themes or upcoming issues getting addressed..

I can't say I'm the biggest Madoka fan, but yeah, that Mami outfit is amazing.

It's one of those cases where all of Leia's alt outfits haven't impressed me that much.  They're cute, but not perfect.  I had a similar problem with Yuri in Vesperia (meanwhile the rest of the cast had outfits I preferred them in to their normal ones --- that game seriously won for awesome DLC outfits). 

Damn my First World gaming problems!!!

Also, with all this talk of the revived translation effort for ToD:DC, I wish to hell we had the older titles on Steam (since Banco is stalling on doing anything else with PSN).
