I'm not sure what I just watched, but it's sheer and utter ridiculousness made me laugh.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QqT1P4VO30&nohtml5=False

From what I gather,
the girl asks out the boy, the boy politely rejects her because he's busy with the baseball team, girl runs off crying, crashes into boy, asks him out again upping the ante, and he politely rejects her again because he's busy with the baseball team.

And this is one of the reasons why "Singin' in the Rain" is my favorite American movie musical.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SND3v0i9uhE

Yeah I'm pretty sure this Puzzles & Dragons ad was done either by the same team or seriously inspired by Fumiko's Confession.  It's got that same crazy-high energy with beautifully orchestrated accidents throughout. xD

BABYMETAL Makes Their U.S. Television Debut
Gimmie, Gimmie, Chocolate
*Bonus* English translation of their most popular song: http://babymetal.net/babymetal-translation/babymetal-give-chocolate-english-translation

Love Colbert.  I doubt I'd ever put BabyMetal on my iPod or whatever, but I do like them and think their gimmick and look is divine. x)

The ice climbing thing made my butt pucker, and I love the animators for those toy fights. x)

Funnies <30s!

"Why is there a GOAT here?!?!"

Chewbacca Toilet Paper.... 8 seconds.

All things that most folks could probably guess at, really.

Made more surprising if Nintendo was finally willing to take /real/ chances with /real/ changes to the series (made slightly worse[?] that this is just a rumour on things that should have been introduced a few years/titles ago anyways).

Oh lord I hope this is true.
If link sucks, choice between fe/male Link, both WiiU/NX systems, and VA for NPCs.

He looks like a male version of Edna. And that is not a bad thing at all.

Basically my first thought as well .... <3

Ho Shit!  Them frosted yellow tips look familiar.  New[ish?] character: Eizen.
More importantly, voiced by legendary anime, game (and Tales veteran) voice actor: Toshiyuki Morikawa!
Voice of Dhaos, Yuan, and Sephiroth (amongst many, many more).

Also, games release date will be revealed April 13.

Boze reminds me too much of Telly Savalas.... I mean, look at this amazing crap.

I have never seen any of those Divergent movies. My only thought on them is that the girl's hair makes her look like a soccer mom

She cut it for The Fault in Our Stars and donated it to one of those "locks of love" charities.  I don't think she liked the do as much either though.

Far From the Madding Crowd
Adaption of the book with Carey Mulligan.  It's quite good and well directed!  It also made me realize no one is named Frank anymore.  My favorite scene goes to Michael Sheen who manages to be, quite literally, the best gentleman even when dealing with homicides.

I'm a huge fan of Tarsem Singh and wish he'd direct fifty movies a year.  Anyways an interesting plot is still kinda muddle by a few obvious twists and a lack of ambition to do cooler things with it.  Still, I liked it, and with Tarsem at the helm, it's a feast for the eyes.

I mean, I like the things mentioned in there, but the #1 problem for me right now is that combat itself feels boring. It *looks* pretty, for sure, with all the jumping and flashy warping and weapon swinging. But I just don't see the point in combat that boils down to hold button 1 to attack and switch to holding button 2 when you want to defend.

I totally agree with this.

That said, I am a big fan of NieR.  I'd be willing to overlook the bad gameplay (with at least its fun gimmicks of emulating other beloved games and occasional bullet-hell) if the rest can make up for it.

...and they add a quick travel.

Phog's "I don't know I'm good looking" good looks win me over.  I wish they got a real Brittish voice actor for L and I'd probably find his battle comments (screwing up well-known idioms) a lot more charming.  Lao would have ranked if he didn't turn into such a wiener.  Otherwise, dear lord, the men to choose from aren't much to write home about.  :/

Otherwise, I thought the random commentary with the denizens (alien or not) much more interesting than the main party.  :P

Fuck no I'm not gonna make like a Frenchman and give up on the game. I want to beat it and tell the world how shitty it actually is despite your obvious delusion that it's somehow "rewarding" and a "masterpiece." You cultists are all the same. It fucking sickens me that fantards like you engage in journalistic fellatio and actually reward developers for defecating feces such as Dark Souls while bitching and moaning about games being easy. I fucking know I'm not alone in my opinions. You are the fucking cancer ruining game journalism. I actually wrote a civil critical review on the original Demon's Souls and had it posted on Amazon, and you know what happened? All the rabid fantards bitched and moaned about my opinion and tried to hurt my Amazon reviewer score by somehow idiotically voting that my review was "not helpful," which ultimately led me to pull down my review to salvage my ranking.

Fans of any big fanbase are all crazy.  Shit you should see me bug my BF and BFF about Xenoblade. :P
You gotta calm down, games are meant to be enjoyed, and this one has always been hard.  It even 'repels' certain players that aren't in it for that experience.  I'm definitely not eager to play the game because it's hard, but I'd know that going in if I do decide to play Dark Souls.
Andrew's been a tip-top fella trying to give you hand, which sometimes still only helps so much, but it's deeefinitely not worth the amount of ugly in your post above.  God knows I could probably spend years trying to practice it, but I'll *always* suck at DDR and rhythm-type games.

56  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FINAL FANTASY XV, This is a fantasy based on reality. on: April 05, 2016, 07:02:38 PM
Damn I'm loving this art:

Here are all the infos from the latest Game Informer article about Final Fantasy XV, part of their month-long coverage of the game
They got to play many hours of the game's first chapter.

(Credits to Kagari and Obliterator for the infos)

Gameplay details:

-You can make branching decisions. Similar to older FFs dialogue choices;

-The game have magic synthesis to create new spells;

-There will be a growth system where you can spend ability points on weapon skills, Noctis, the party, bonuses etc. ;

-GI says there's a instrumental version of this in the game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO8kTRv4l3o;

-Four quest types: for fun (minigames:fishing/chocobo race/JusMon5 etc.), main story, monster hunts and regional quests. Currently over 200 quests and they're working on more;

-Tabata: "We have no intention to create sequels out of this";

-Weapon types includes: swords, daggers, lances, firearms, shields, royal arms, spells, and something called "machines" which weren't revealed yet;

-The trunk of the Regalia acts as party storage;

-Each party member has their own "special talent" that improves with use. One example given is Prompto will ask the crew to take pit stops with the car where everyone gets out, goes to a spot and he takes photographs. You can then share these photo's on social media. The more you do it the better his pictures will be. These are in the game for both character development and will have real consequences for the game. Prompto is photography, Noctis is fishing, Ignis is cooking, and Gladiolus is survival instincts;

-When you call a summon they won't always do the same thing. They are entities that exist in the world itself. So depending on the situation they will do different things. Examples given Titan sometimes will run up and melee hit an enemy, sometimes he will throw boulders at the enemy and its possible he will even give up and leave the battle. They will also act differently in a dungeon than they will in the overworld. Its a huge focus for the staff for Summons to feel exciting and a major event when they show up, not just some random monster that swoops in. They want a sense of awe with them.

-One of the screenshots has Ignis with a spear.

-GI has this to say, "FFXV isn't Witcher 3 or Dragon Age Inquisition in terms of your to-do list. That isn't necessarily bad because your quest log isn't bloated by insignificant or uninteresting tasks.....inspires a feeling similar to pre-PS2 Final Fantasies where there were huge overworld maps that made the setting seem authentic and enormous - even if you didn't find a quest every step.";

-You can improve and forge weapons from materials you collect;

-Kingsglaive has existed from 2013;

Story related info (SPOILERS):

-The game has a Chapter 0 (Prlogue) but GI wasn't allowed to see it;

-So the game starts with the car breaking down after the opening sequence. No Behemoth hunt.

-About Ardyn: shows up fairly early it looks like. The crew tries to take the ferry to Altissia and he stops them telling them service is suspended. At this point they don't know of the invasion.

-Noctis and co. ... find out about the invasion by reading a newspaper and then try and go back to the city but are blocked off by Niflheim forces.

-Kagari interpretation of the game's first chapter: So the first chapter after the opening sequence seems to go something like this:
Noctis and friends are on their way to Altissia -> car breaks down outside Lucis in a town called Leide -> you meet up with Cid and Cidney at Hammerhead who agree to repair the car and Cidney sends you on some fetch quests (kill monsters) -> car is repaired, gang goes to deliver a package for Cidney -> package delivered to the black dog seen in the trailers, named Umbra -> flashback to Noctis and Luna childhood -> Noctis and co. set out to a coast town to catch a ferry to Altissia,meet up with Ardyn who says they're closed off for now -> sidequests -> party goes to hotel, reads about Lucis attack in the newspaper -> they get back in the car and head back to Lucis right away -> they fight through some Niflheim troops and eventually see what's happened on the horizon -> Cor calls and delivers the bad news -> chapter 1 ends.

-Tabata state that There will be a centralized foe. Not an assortment of villians as the "main enemy". Think of it like Sephiroth there will be a singular major villian;

-Luna may have affection for Noctis, but their relationship is complicated and Noctis may not have the confidence to respond back to her feelings. Their marriage is actually a political one.

-In regards to FFVII remake. Looking at the FFXIII saga as a model of release (three full-fledged games). Each game will be the size of a FFXIII game is specifically stated. In other words full scale 30+ hour RPG, and they also say plot wise nothing is off the table in terms of changes. They clarify they aren't changing everything but Kitase, Nomura, and Nojima feel since they were involved with the original game that they have the liberty to add / change what they want while still making fans happy. They also state they want FFVII Remake to gave a much shorter development cycle than FFXV.

lol understatement if the year for that write up above you. xD

Aeolus is a champ at these long explanations too; he's gotten me out of a few gameplay pinches.
58  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: April 05, 2016, 12:13:21 AM
Hell, it even comes with the tutorial.

B...but why.
Oh man, what sad news for adaptions then. ;/
59  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The tri-Ace General Discussion (& Star Ocean 5) Thread on: March 31, 2016, 10:58:17 PM
I wish they would give the characters more of a hand drawn style in the game as opposed to the FF look. A big reason why I loved Valkyria Chronicles and to a lesser extent something like Dark Cloud 2 was the art.

I actually really get annoyed at the Bravely Default CG for this reason.  The art is so lovely, but the CG is so generic; it clashes a lot with the actual art and in-game graphics.

I can't stop looking at those adorable caricatures, I need a Nendoroid or chibi minifig of Fiore, like, yesterday.

I really wish GSC made more nendo petites for big casts. :(
This would be a great opportunity to create a bunch of the SD SO5 characters!

...oh, shit, but I don't think SquareEnix wants anyone but else touching their characters.  So we're stuck with these:
60  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The tri-Ace General Discussion (& Star Ocean 5) Thread on: March 31, 2016, 07:35:43 PM
I doubt they will.  But, actually, I preferred the NA UI in SO4's case.  :X  *throws up flame shield*
It looks like they took the best parts of both worlds for SO5 (and yeah them lil' skill graphics are cute); I definitely like that blue sci-fi UI compared to the stark colour clusters in SO4.
