Would SO3's ending been better if the universe was destroyed?  Then people would go, "*WHIIINE* What did I do all that work for!?!?".  Blame that for it's "big reveal", not its ending.  And Christ, it wasn't that bad.  I'm willing to file most of FF8's plot as worse for it's cheese factor, and Star Ocean 2's for being astronomically impossible.

Well the thing is,

Code:
that is exactly why I hate the ending. The universe is destroyed, and as Ashton points out, it boils down to everyone BELIEVING they exist. It just made the whole final boss thing pointless. They were trying to stop their galaxy from being destroyed, and it happens anyway.


The turn around for that was lame, I admit.  But the fact that it technically WAS destroyed was a different approach I admired.  I guess it's the whole "why-I-like-Kefka" thing.

I HATE the fact Heavy Rain's is there for the reason it is.  Why the high-heavens and fuck would the killer change??  That'd be bad story-telling by having to throw a bunch of ambiguous clues to make the killer possibly ANYONE and trying to validate it somehow in the story (that much plot in so little time would be insincere and just down-right messy).  It's best a game follows its own plot, as its creators intended it should, and not in an ending that HAS TO fit the mold.

Technically the killer could change if you found different pieces of evidence and whatnot, but the final ending was bullshit, especially with all the red herrings and the whole "LOL THIS SCENE ACTUALLY HAPPENED COMPLETELY DIFFERENTLY" thing.

I'm the type who sort of views passively than really examines scenes (so I don't really see many spoilers coming).  I didn't notice many red herrings besides the black out thing Mars suffered (which they gave a lame, one-line excuse to compensate for any suspicions).  I liked the killer, it wasn't too-too obvious, and it got a nice reveal.  Any others??  My mind's a daze, I played the game a while ago.

Quote
No way in hell they would have made the killer Jayden, he had his own problems, and it didn't tie well enough to murdering children, his problem was just addiction, but worked well in that he had his own problems to face.  Paige wasn't goona be it either; I highly doubt the *one*women* would be it, and even if it was, it wouldn't be convincing, she was a writer...and an obvious sex-object.  Mars would have been too easy to guess, IMO, so the writer's didn't want to take that route.  I think he worked well from the perspective of "being right in the middle" of the plot, it's HIS kid, HIS loss... so making him the killer would have had him pulling way too many strings.  And the only stupid part with Sully was where he was in the store with the whore-lady, he managed to kill the clerk without her hearing/assuming a goddamn thing.  But his back-story and cover-up as a detective help hide the tracks.

Megaman Legends 2 does deserve a spot there.  Didn't look like ML3 was looking to explain things much either.... nor will it ever if it did.

Metroid became a cop out to me when Nintendo stopped rewarding the player's hard work with Samus' banging body and gorgeous face...by making it standard and handed on a platter.  She lost that mystery to her where it was almost "an honour" to see what she looked like.  And that fact is was a "SHE" all that time you played as her made her one hell of a candidate for badass.  But then it became like showing her was nothing, and worst of all, we got someone who was a bit too...girly.  At least to the extent that I envisioned a stronger character (in both senses).

George and Lincoln in super-future armor is a BAD ending???  I say... such standards.

I hope Hidoshi sees this.













(actually, Photobuck has been a pain in the ass, hope these show... if not, hopefully I'll not be too lazy to fix the problem).

I'm sorry Bytor.  I should have been more careful...



This is for you.  I've learned.

At this rate, I'm glad school got in the way of me beating FF13-2.  I wouldn't wanna boot the game up JUST for the extras.  Furthermore, once you beat a game, getting costumes feels...a bit more pointless.  So, good to know I'll be seeing them hop around in them.

Fever took a real toll on me, but I'm finally coming around back to normal.  I was a trifecta of nose stuffed up, ear aching, and throat hurting. x_X

Back to original study schedule... =(
I'd like to think being sick was my body saying "take a fucking break, Dice" and it sat me on my ass.  Watched some movies, played games, cooked some food, lots of rest, and annoyed people online.

PS: Nyquil is my lover when the fever rapes me.

Xenogears -- the plot thickens....  often.  I can't keep up!  Old Man' Bal turned into Ol' Man Asshole real fast and Calamity was a pain in the ass but the first real challenge thus far.  Citan got called some nick name that wasn't "Citany" and I went "AH-HAH!!!! IT STARTS!!!!".  I like how you can kinda see Sigurd's eye patch indented. x)

Tried to pick this up today but no dice. And I don't mean I tried picking it up where Dice works. haha

The release date for Canada has officially been changed to tomorrow. I am looking forward to playing this all day Friday.

Come vissiiitt~! :D

Wow, they got really good at rendering blouse-y shirts from the 70s.

Funny, I just said the exact same thing on another forum a few minutes ago.

One love, Yodes.

Haha Michigan sucks.

Nah, Michigan rules. Great outdoors to be had.




I'd love to live somewhere with awesome outdoors.  I wanna wake up, go outside, and see a goddamn mountain in the distance. -_-

It would be nice to see a different type of main character though. Maybe someone older, like an adventurer making a career switch.

Yeah, all of them lately look like a gust of wind could blow them down.

CG models are technically "perfect" looking humans.  Folds of fat never happen even where the neck turns.

...was that the only thing they could find Lightning to wear??
