one thing about the ending(s)
So... all the mass relays have been destroyed. That leaves two interesting thoughts. One is that everyone that came to fight at earth is trapped there. Also, according to Arrival that one mass replay they destroyed creamed a whole solar system. So by all accounts every system that had a relay in it should be gone, including earth.

Hmmm, interesting.

wtf.... maybe some other series you could get nerds to get a nerd-hard-on and raise the money... but Class of fucking Heroes?????  Did that many people like the first game?!?!!

This feels wrong and stupid.  Maybe it could work, lord knows I've probably wished a title to come here even if it meant I'd pay extra for it... but I guess it's the way they're angling it to "raise half a million to prove you still like JRPGs out west".  It feels like I'm funding them to do what is their job to begin with. 

I also think this assumes people are DYING to have limited editions a bit too much.  They're cool and all, but a lot of the content easily forgetable.

Maybe I missed something -- I'm too tired and this is just odd.  I do think it sets a bad precedence as well.  Last thing we need is a whole bunch of companies wanting funds for games (to list an extreme, mind you).

Remake Final Fantasy VI?  They got Ultros' model made. :D

Gau is actually one of the most overpowered characters in FFVI.

His stats are unbelievable, but I can't get Rage to work well for me. I prefer Umaro if I have to have a Berserker-type character on my team.

I've heard stuff about Relm actually being good... I just never cared to use sketch.

Dear Japanese developers. Let the PSP die already.

New systems are powerful and sccaaaarrryy.

No context for you, hahhaha.

They've certainly ruined the possibility of anyone other than black people making black people jokes.  Unless you're Lisa Lamponelli.

So it's trademarked in US now too, according to Siliconera.

Yaaay. :)

Now it's just word from Namdai I guess.

It's a pretty condescending opinion to to say that fine arts measure their achievement by their difficulty, how much they confuse, or how weird they are. Could you elaborate? I'm not saying that what you encounter in the fine art world is not necessarily confusing, strange, or difficult, but I dispute that any of those things are the end goal or even in the artist's mind at all.

It's meant to be condescending.  At the end of the day, however, (and what I more meant to say, because I hate avant-garde shit), it is sometimes very hard to find original work, something you haven't seen before.  And to anyone who has looked at some misshaped statue in some pretentious art gallery, that the point of the artwork is to be unlike anything you have ever seen.  Why do you think a list like the one Din posted you can nod your head and go "yeah", or actually have the term "by the numbers" a common enough (albeit negative) review?  That's all I meant.  I'd argue as well that there is nothing against enjoyable everyday fiction if it is done right.  Sitcoms and TV dramas are some of the worst offenders, but if it's good, then fuck it, it's good. :)

Adventifa is just Rinoa trying to trick you.

...that sounds about right, actually...

Tifa. Advent Children version:P

She looked too much like a Jpop idol compared to how... i dunno, she just came off as needing to look like the "popular Japanese look" than I feel how drawings of her captured.

I would be fine with it ending like that. Ballsy, awesome, great ending. I really doubt XIII-3 will happen. Really, really doubt it.

It's not like XIII-2 did badly (well, ok, by FF standards it did), but yeah, I'd rather them just wrap up the plot then draw it out some more.  Otherwise it'll get like any bad teen drama that just wants to fill seasons.

And I want some cameo costumes, wtf.  There is like 30 fucking spots for it, I wanna dress shitty Serah is Farris' pirate clothes or Rinoa bicycle shorts and blue thing (which hopefully won't be recoloured pink!).
6117  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Is Zelda Skyward Sword really the best Zelda game ever? on: March 25, 2012, 11:41:39 PM
I hate Zelda games for throwing more money-rupees than you really have anything to do with.  A real cop-out to this was in Twilight Princess that gave you an expensive suit of armor that made you invincible ...as it drains your money.

I thought Skyward Sword was on to something with the upgrade system, but it turned out to be such a dubious system since, for example, you can upgrade your bow and arrow to do more attack damage, but you only need it for one boss, and most enemies are designed to be killed with the sword anyways.

The stupid ass Beetle got upgrades; one of them was so it could fly faster (a good thing), but the other was so that it could fly longer  ... but anything you needed or could get was obtainable without that "final upgrade".

Bug Net upgrade? Already finished feather catching (omg, walk slowly! It works!), and bug hunting is easy enough.

Bomb bag upgrade?  Bomb plants replenish every 3 seconds.

I almost want the game to pull a Skies of Arcadia... blow money on your hometown -- sure it was superficial, but by god did it feel good!

Hence the topic of junk fiction and why the "finer" (ie; confusing and strange) arts seek to be "better" because they can't be understood or comprehended so easily.  I agree you see a lot of re-hashing in fiction, but it's about how it's done; but I suppose after a long while of being exposed to similar plots over, and over, and over again -- you do start to notice and you do start to get a bit bogged down by it.

It's kinda of annoying that the one puzzle revolves coloured blocks time and time again -- but okay, I'll look forward to it. :P

Actually, quick Q.  I think I may have missed it by this point...  Why in the world was Hubert given up for adoption??? 
6120  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 25, 2012, 02:05:32 AM
I realized I am in the last dungeon of the main arc.

I know I'm not a story player... but a damn shame when even the characters aren't up to snuff.
Everything felt too sudden, and no moment felt too important because characters had so little worth making them someone to connect with.  I think they pushed the groan-worthy "friendship chats" for too long and too hard.  I'm playing this along Abyss, and Graces' cast chemistry, politics, hell even the made up sci-fi science are seriously a step back.

The dungeons have to be a new low in the series as well.  Block moving and switch hitting puzzles are...the *only* innovative element, aren't they??  What a disgrace.  Phantasia, the first fucking title in the series, did way more than this.

The battle system is great and definitely what keeps me coming back, and yeah, I play games for that, but so much else is lacking you can't help but notice.

This game is in a strange middle-way, for one good it does, it does another just the opposite. 
But, I will say that it will be hard to abandon the CC system and go back to TP.
