Wait, asexual might be right given that Tifa probably would throw herself on him if he even barely suggested it.  Sorry, not to give the idea that Tifa's Cloud-cock crazy, but she literally drops anything for the fella.  And it's actually very sweet.

Like I said earlier, the whole scene where she keeps vigil while Cloud's a damn near vegetable after the mako poisoning really shows the strength of her character.  

EDIT: And in thinking about JRPG love interests, is it me or is it rare to see a heroine who's dated and been in relationships prior to meeting the hero?  I know Aeris dated Zack when she revealed that Cloud reminded her of him.  And there was that one scene in FF8 where Rinoa reveals that she dated Seifer.  

Agreed there.  I think it's weird they recycled the "dated a dude you knew" angle twice though.

I like it though, it certainly makes the character more realistic even if an expense of that somewhat "chaste" or innocent quality given (or simply assumed) to characters otherwise.  Plus, they're not necessarily a young cast either; Yuffie being the youngest at 16[?].  The love-triangle group is in their early 20s so I'm glad the game indeed gave them their teenage years to find that first love or whatever.

Actually, not to divert things too much, but the "Wedding episode" of Falls' somewhat quiet hit TV show Outlander surprised its audience by somewhat reversing these roles despite an 'olde world' setting:
The female main character wasn't a virgin but the man she was marrying was

I actually really want to get this out there, and maybe I didn't pay attention or didn't do battle in enough places too.  But Final Fantasy 7 has to have the most impressive amount of unique monsters I've ever seen in a game.  Literally, every place no matter how small or minor (and "soldier enemies" aside) has unique monsters seen in one place but never again.  I'm hard pressed to tell you which monsters are indeed reskins.

I figured ToX2 for some serious drama with BS "sci fi" dimension travelling that occupies its own rules and waves the "magical fiction wand" to tell whatever story it wants.

Also Parasyte: The Maxim is a really good show if anyone missed it.
The MC is starting to be pretty BAMF.
I'm hoping it gets an OST because I really like some of the music.

I loved the old late 80s style so much more though.  MC and girlfriend look so goofy now.  That said, it's a great adaption and still surprisingly gory (and given the time discrepancy between when the manga and anime debuted, the addition of THE INTERNET and cell phones is an interesting adjunct :P ).  And yeah, the OST is pretty great.

Casual Friday?

And how. xD

Anyone see the new Knight figure from Dragon's Crown?  It's unbelievable....
(and it can be yours for a pretty hefty $200+)

I'm somewhat the opposite, but I think it depends on the game. 
If the game is going for a heavy exploration angle with its massive overworld, then I'd hope the characters can make the journey interesting or realistic.

Did you say Pumpkin Soup!?

I've never actually had a pumpkin before, so that would have been interesting.

Pumpkin Soup reminds me a lot of cream of carrot soup.  They're both very nice and thick.  They keep the heart and body all warm on those stupidly cold days.  Which is nice because it's usually an downhill battle against the weather in Canada (and Scotland?)

edit: yaay kate nash!

I think I just found Child of Eden's successor


(oh yeah, EPILEPSY WARNING !!!)

Haha very pretty and it definitely needs one of those "viewer discretion" splash page before the game starts to play in a well-lit room. x)

Creepy Text Theatre [‎Playlist] (NSFW language)

Found these on YouTube randomly. Hopefully you guys enjoy them as much as I did.

Some of them are pretty funny, I've had a few doozies of guys who just...can't flirt (or do it for the yuks I hope).

Film editing can add a lot of dimension to movies.  This guy is a great YouTuber who looks into this kind of thing to show a lot of the very conscious decisions that make films more interesting.
This episode examines the late and great Satoshi Kon; a man that was certainly no stranger to some exquisite film-making.

Honestly, the only thing I'm worried about at this point is dialogue.  I'll probably beat my head into the game's disc if you're stuck on a bromatic cruise of the country listening to really bad or unnatural dialogue.

Argath! AKA the requisite 80's coming of age movie, I'm a dickbag because this movie needs a dickbag, dickbag.  This guy is one of the best examples of an archetypal baddie this game has to offer and I love him for it.  Unearned sense of accomplishment? Check.  Snotty looking facial expression? Check.  Complete inability to comprehend why others don't particularly care for him? Check!  You could just as easily slot this guy into a John Hughes (RIP) movie and no one would bat an eye.

I definitely hope Square explores Ivalice again.  As far as a classical Medieval setting they've done a really great job expanding and exploring it and I'd love to see it again.

That said, you're right on the money about him and I always loved that...kinda....Hitler Youth look to him.  He's 100% a villain and you know it (don't you love when villains look like villains??  I find it hilarious, really)

Can't wait to see progress on this classic. :)

So apparently this is a basic topographic view of the FF15 World...well, Continental Map.  And she's a big one.

So Matt Taylor was in some hot water for wearing a pretty tacky-ass shirt to the press interview about the Philae Lander and Rosetta Comet.

So my latest contribution for "Random and Amazing" is the shirt itself... why would someone spend money on that and wear it to such a public thing is beyond me, but it certainly qualifies for the topic I think.

@Dinny: I'll admit, I'm not too familiar with muffins. I was thinking of what I see American's eat in TV shows and movies and such, and blueberry muffins seemed to be a thing. I've only ever made cupcakes before so I don't really know how it's suppsoed to be. I'm glad I'm not totally off the mark <3

I figure both are pretty bad for you so you mind as well eat a cupcake if you're going for it.

I had a really soft vanilla cup cake the other day, so that made me happy.

Tomato soup is about the only way I'll like eating tomatos (or ketchup I guess).  And chicken soup, Dice style, is the way mama always makes it (and it'll cure diseases, for fact).

On that note; dear RPGFan, I've had a ton of minor but many health problems this year on top of a bunch of other issues, and so I don't think it's too soon to say that 2014 has sucked ass and I can't wait the new year.

Super Groupies has more Tales-inspired fashion.
The shoes!!  Male characters inspiring some face ladies heels (the Leon one being a bit 'girly' for me, and the Yuri one is perfect....but that heel...)

However, there is also a pair of pretty fly ToX2 kicks coming out from them that looks just right:
