Well, um...

Hm. Guess I won't be watching the Uncovered event tonight then.

Sorry, should I not have posted....?? :(
It was hitting the news sites and I just sorta acted on impulse

Only mildly excited about this, so will probably wait until later to pick it up once I've finished with other new releases I'm more interested in.

Waiting on the reviews for this myself.

Neogaf has an impressions thread up.

I wanna say I'm gonna join you two, but in the end...I have a feeling I'm gonna bite the bullet and buy.   I'm not really into games that resemble your shounen-action-anime... and Star Ocean is kinda fitting that bill right now.  I'd love to be wrong; and I'm a huge sucker for tri-Ace even at their worse since they do gameplay so well.

So I got further done with FFXIII-2, and I have to say, I feel like this is a case of 2 steps forward, 5 steps back or something.

Whatever problems 13 had that might of been slightly improved, the rest just went way backwards to the point where I don't know how I'll ever finish it.

Meh.





Hmm.. yeah.  That feels about right.  The storyline made my brain go numb.  The A/V aspect was great and top-shelf.


...

Also, whose fucking idea was it to get secret monsters by throwing the worst incarnation of the Moogle mascot off random gorges?

At last! The breaker of walls has come to town Gilligan's Island. Also the Captain from (one of the) Ys V.
Ahh, japan logic. 26 years old, body of a god, old man hair...

lol that's 26?!  xD
I have to say I like Dogi's new silver fox look going on anyways. ;)

EDIT: ACTUALLY. Gotta give Dogi the benefit of the doubt?  Game of Throne's "The Mountain" was 26 too. :O

So like...when people ask that question "Are you a sunrise or sunset type of person" I'm the type to say SUNRISE....  I gotta say, this shot makes me change my mind:



I really hope we get a better lighted version in the future!  Daybreak can be quite lovely... this town looks sleepy as hell! 

Anyways, I'm happy with more KH footage and coverage and really hope we don't have to wait too long for II.8 (god that title...).  I've also promised myself to consciously acknowledge the day Kingdom Hearts III is FINALLY in my hands, because the second game came out 10 years ago...when I was still in High School... because now I am a working adult.

Happy to report it indeed was the multi-parter.
Kinda looking to satisfy more retro anime right now.  Or OVA's in general (series' are just....too long for any other way to take it in than a manga).

Good. Good.
I'm going to blow your mind a bit:
Code:
They cut Captain Planet's entire death scene.

If you're looking for old OVAs with charm, how about Patlabor?

I liked Captain Planet!  He takes me back to a time in anime where the men were muscular beefcakes

Patlabor is another classic I need to dip into.  Never knew what it was about, though I've heard and heard about it all these years.  I think I'll go in blind again and see it completely fresh.  I shall return for that...!

@Aeo and Kev

Kinda sad to see Frontier being very ho-hum.  I really like the Macross 'set up' of fighters and songstresses (daresay, very Ar Tonelico-ish); also a shame Delta looks like a bad mash up sci fi and magical girl....

And Thanks Aeo I might check out Legend of the Galactic Heroes! :)

Patema Inverted

Holy shit holy shit.  Sorry to be graphic, but I don't think my butt has ever puckered as much as it has for any other movie.  The film gives you a constant exhilaration that combines vertigo and a fear of heights.

For those who don't know the premise, I think the key art wraps it up:


Essentially there are two types of people, those who are normal and rooted to the ground, and the other who are, quite literally, inverted as to how "gravity works" for them.  So yeah, falling up is just as likely as falling down, and a big blue sky above is just as intimidating as a vast dark abyss below, and the film is good at making you pretty nervous at the sight of either.  The film constantly plays with these characters being pulled by either pole, and the shot of Patema and Age holding each other is both adorable and them just honestly hanging on to each other for dear life.  

The problems with it?

...well, beyond the incredible hook and gimmick the film has, it's a pretty standard adventure film.  It pulls a few good twists by the end, but the villain is pretty generic (even worse, without much backstory to justify himself), the Aigian people live in a bad YA dystopia where they take a conveyor belt to school that doesn't seem to teach much more than having a dictator spouts obvious bullshit over a TV screen about never questioning the orderly way of things (cue the symbolic moment where a class of zombies pay close attention to these ramblings while our  hero looks out the window yearning for something more), while "the Inverts" live in a steampunk web of pipes beneath the surface of the planet pursued by aforementioned authoritarian society.  The heroes are good and innocent but no better or more unique than any other Ghibli couple... really it's the excellent premise that brings this film together and I totally recommend it based on that because it's definitely good fun and worth seeing.

Eh, as others have said this whole thing reeks of faux controversy.

I'd like to be that asshole right now with enough confidence to say if people don't see this for anything other than that...as being dumb about it (or rather, incredibly short-sighted or not thinking hard about it at all beyond the surface details).  Because almost everything around the decision makes like zero sense.

Ah, good. Now that's we've gotten to the point that other developers are going 'inspired by Valkyrie Profile!', it'd be a shame if we didn't get more of the real thing.

I pledged a pretty sizeable amount to the project, so I'm happy it got kickstarted.  I can't wait and I'm super stoked for it; checks a ton of my personal list of "YAY"s for it and it'll be amazing to have a bonafide VP-esque experience.  Also the cast honestly got better with each reveal...  Good going Lab Zero they surprised at every turn.

http://gematsu.com/2016/03/star-ocean-5-producer-valkyrie-profile-3-proposal-pc

So nothing concrete on this yet, but VP:Hrist is looking to be back on the table.

God yes.  It'd be a crime not to happen.  I'd like to think tri-Ace saw other people banking on familiar concepts to VP as an indirect invite back into the playfield (and hopefully no return to the pretty awkward SRPG attempt). :P
I kinda hope a new VP game "tones it down".  I feel like what SO3 and VP2 have in common was they fucked a lot of the in-game universes over.  Be great to have a more 'down to earth' experience...

for all we know, this could be one big subversive Internet style publicity stunt.

That's the only explanation I can think of for why they drew attention to this in the first place.

Seriously? Even if it's conspiracy-ish by this point, I kinda think it is, because it works....EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Can't tell what's really going on in that picture at all, but it's gorgeous! :D

do not consort with nationalist creeps

the comments section of that article is a goldmine of garbage tho

Feminists will once again be told of their "outrage" for panties when the reaction for its removal (rather, the added inch in bigger panty length) will ironically respond with the same 'outrage' from the other side.  This whole thing honestly stinks; it's awfully strange and the reasoning is dubious.  If nothing was said, no one would have noticed; if they didn't change it, I doubt anyone would have cared.

I wish they fixed her face more; I'm pretty sure there was more complaints about that. x)

Square Enix Gave Star Ocean 5’s Miki Bigger Panties in Fear of Western Criticism
http://nichegamer.com/2016/03/28/square-enix-gave-star-ocean-5s-miki-bigger-panties-in-fear-of-western-criticism/



lol ok?  She had a giant dress on, I imagine you'd have to play with the camera to see another inch of added panties??  Besides Fiore was the more main concern of "this" (whatever it is).
Looks like the game just guaranteed thousands of 1-star reviews on Amazon JP.  The reason sounds kinda odd, I can't imagine developers feeling the tension to change [both versions?] exclusively for Westerners and Western reasons.
