I agree with Alisha that the CT characters didn't have [much] personality, and Crono didn't aside from associating his "do-goodery".  The story was much more charming than the stereotype characters (I like Frog, but his amphibian exterior and chivalrous interior was what did the trick).  They were cute and fun though. :D
I loved how CC expanded their story in whatever small hints afterwards

I agree with Lucca in wishing there was more Noel (I hope he has a prominent role still), and hitting Squeenix with a 2x4 for the stupid title.

Wow, Squeenix is just totally killing the "Final Fantasy"-ness of the game its hero originally came from. Once again, Squeenix doesn't seem to proud of the games they've made...
I like some of the ideas they got going, except the clock aspect, but having "more control" is 90% of the time a good thing.  I'll look forward to seeing a trailer before pissing all over it.

Besides a cool design, I agree with Kevadu... she's a boring chick.

"No comment" is usually "a thing", right?

mistakes FFVIII made include the following:

- Making the world setting so sparse you only encounter two major world powers and a handful of towns.
- The technological disparity between the two superpowers makes you wonder why any fucks are given for one of them.
- Flashbacks to a team of chucklefucks who don't do a damn thing worth mentioning for the time you flashback to them.
- Making the antagonist's big focus trying to figure out what the hell SeeD is (and TIME KOMPRESSION).
- Not making the other Sorceress the main antagonist (and I'm not talking about Edea).
- Making you cart around a team of nameless, faceless chucklefucks (with names and faces but "whatever" "....").
- Saddling you with the worst incarnation of the Final Fantasy female lead archetype ever created.
- Starting the game off in a Japanese High School setting.
- That's also a paramilitary organization that fulfills mercenary contracts between the one active world power and a few towns.
- That only employ Japanese highschoolers to fulfill said mercenary contracts.
- Armed only with memory wiping creatures and a couple crappy weapons.
- And are told nothing useful because, aside from the main character, they're just a distraction for the real A-Team.
- And their plot macguffin princess which is the one that actually matters to the main antagonist.

Oh man, yeah, maybe this is why for the life of me I *could not* give you a cohesive summary to what that game was about.
I think "few towns" is a bit of a mean criticism, it had them, and they served whatever purpose.  But then Esthar comes in and I foam at the mouth that some GARGANTUAN super city is lost to the world for some time. Then there's that bit with magical Ellone, the very creepy "Lunar Cry" (where monsters all come from the moon and take a trip to earth to raise a little hell for everyone), and the very manly Sorcer*ess* Adel who spouts three lines before you do battle against him/her.

The game had some fine ideas, but shot them out like diarrhea.

So North America gets Type-0 music but still no word on Type-0 :(


I'm looking forward to spend hours checking out characters models and their underwear. (*~▽~)

I think every game should have a model viewer. Why the hell not?
I hate 3D asses though, it looks to weird when the butt is just sort of smoothed out and doesn't actually go inside.  It looks too much like a Barbie doll.

PS: That was actually a pretty lovely mix of the Prelude as well...

I kinda feel that the ingredients are there already for a flick of this, as Maxx pointed out.  It will automatically lose a star for the same reason all other "game-based-movies" lose a star: you're not playing the role.

Found this movie from 1973 called Fantastic Planet and it's... different to say the least. Though, I'm impressed with the soundtrack. Good stuff.


I see this movie pop up every so often. Yeah, it was from the psychedelic 70s, so I believe you when you call it "...different" (anyone remember/watch the animated film "Wizards" from 1977? psychedlic is all over this, and it's in a goddamn myth-medieval setting!!!  Speaking of which, anyone remember that *absolutely* amazing villain death? For a movie called and about a wizard, this was the least likely and best death I could have imagined).

Keith (2008)
This has to be one of the BEST romantic "dramadies" I've seen.  Keith himself is an extraordinarily deep, witty, yet hard to understand character, with only subtle hints that let you really understand him and his motives.  If you take "A Walk to Remember", reverse the roles, make the leads 100x more charismatic and compelling, and you get this film.  Makes me sad Nicholas Spark's film adaptations have done so well in the box office when there is good material is actually out there.  Stars Jesse McCartney and Elisabeth Harnois (a pretty interesting match-up in real life).

Big-name producer is a good thing?
It was only a matter of time I guess.

Oh yeah...

Sadly seems like we'll be wearing less neon or whatever the fuck they're wearing. Def want the board though.

Dog Cute > Cat Cute

Hot man problems.

Oh dear...


Soon enough...

Man, I love FE6. Roy's stat growth is schizophrenic though.

Roy was mah boy in Smash Bros Melee.... the fact he wasn't in Brawl is still something I ruminate about..

Anyways. I beat Kingdom Hearts 3D.  I absolutely loved it, reviews have been average to good, I don't get why the "averages" besides an easily fixable "drop" mechanic and the kind of annoying micromanaging with the monsters.

- Loved the last bunch of boss fights. I'm pretty sure you fight Time at one point....yeah....cool?
- KH2 models were so much nicer to look at. Young Sora and Riku look stupid.
- Stupid, stupid story.  "I'm XEHANORT.  HE'S XEHANORT" then literally, "WE'RE ALL XEHANORT!!!!!!!!!!!!"
- I loved the secret boss, I'm glad it's not Sephiroth or some other Squeenix character, and I love the Disney rep. Shame there wasn't an "arena" though, KHI milked the hell outta theirs.
- Clearly this was more about Riku's story. I like him a lot now that he's not being an evil prick.
- Sora had the better levels though. ...And Superglide.
- Country of the Musketeers was the best level, loved the locations, and fantastic music
- The Grid, while it looked cool, sucked some serious donkey butt to navigate. Great having Wilde, Bridges, and Hedlund reprise their roles.
- This series shares a lot with Star Wars. Light and Darkness is clearly the light/darkside of the Force. The baddies always want LukeSora to come over to the darkside.
- I want III and HD

I can't even remember the last time I drank anything with a straw...

I think it's a chick-drick thing (i.e.; them "fruity-coladas").

Part of me is still bummed this isn't on my PS3. ;~;

Looks really nice though.

We got P5 for that, no?? :(

Trailer for realz.
No gameplay though...
6149  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: August 27, 2012, 06:21:17 PM

Let's have us some leaked SMTIV images.

There isn't any other game I want more than this.

They've set the bar high... and I'm sure they'll meet it.

Watched on YouTube


Putting on some Bugs Bunny.... It's safer and nicer to watch.
