^ love that movie.

Yeah, I like the "thumbs up/down" approach.  It's simple and based more on general entertainment than ever-lasting appeal.  Enough writers do the latter.

I give him credit for fighting the good fight against cancer and really giving it all until the end.

Why start a new one?

Haps: soaked in the tub and drank some mexican pop

Now I'm trying to find that perfect table for next to my couch

And that privilege to start new topic must only lie with Yoda!!!!  I believe in traditions!
Because of this stupid thread, if I have no better word for "what's going down" I say "HAPS". x(

I drank V8 Fusion to help my veggie intake.  Low sodium, tastes decent, 1.5 servings of veggies and fruit in drinkable form.... and no fibre. 
I suppose it's better than Coke still... but coke tastes so good with pizza and burgers, it's hard to sub in water or anything for that.

Speaking of tradition.  Tomorrow is last day of class (exams aside) -- I'm getting near-naked and gaming all night.

Me watching Adventure Time for the firs time:

"Oh!  This is supposed to be funny! :D












Heh :)

:| "

It's good, but similarly, the hype machine may have skewed my perception or I just didn't see what it is.  I can see the fans, it's whack and has a great and simple premise, but I gave it a passing nod more than anything.  I like joke-comedy or physical comedy, and sometimes Adventure Time just dipped too much to screwball/goofy/random comedy that is more "whatever".  Some of the clips I"ve been sent or shown have been great though, but I doubt I'll sit with it anytime soon unless Netflix makes that decision easier for me. :P

I "get" the appeal for MLP...well, maybe not all the conventions, fanurt, and being a young adult male and bringing your pony plush to restaurants or photoshooping to be in a camera with you... but I get the appeal.  Same thing though, it gets boring (I had to do my research for 04/01 somehow) and it's clearly meant for a younger demographic (even with wise/clever pop-culture references and puns asside... like the secret "Dr. Who" pony --- Dr. Hooves).  It's colourful, magical, and fun and nothing really-really bad happens (I know a bunch of boys who watched Sailor Moon when they were young, probably for similar reasons).  It's just a nice show.

I was gonna say actually, March was an *awesome* video game announement month, so I really liked the idea of taking all the columns and making a monthly recap.  Good show!

^ Well, golly....

Little known secret.  I *hate* "Fail" pictures, I like "WINS" better. :D

I watched it too, and yeah, it's not very good.
I feel like there is potential here, but it ain't happening (I'm also not really crazy about japanese folklore getting mixed into stories...).

The dad saying his daughter was his girlfriend was just weird and off-putting.

That kid is a bum and a jackass, and the guy with the helicopter was annoying.

And why the fuck is everyone so mean to the main girl????

I did like the artwork, and Masumi Itou doing the ending theme.  Haven't heard her in a while.
I might watch a few episodes, but if it doesn't pick up or start answering what the hell is going on, it's off.  Kishida Mel's art kinda translates funny into animation... don't it?

They gotta stop revealing screen shots and go directly for gameplay. 

I'm willing to cut the crap graphics some slack if it's traditional Drakengard gameplay (where the camera is pulled pretty far back 90% of the time).

Then I'm glad I bought the super special Japanese edition when I had the chance!!
6159  Media / The Soundroom / Re: ADX and Grandia on: April 04, 2013, 01:04:55 AM
No sir, I meant the world map to Skies/Eternal Arcadia follows the same method, it changes the world map theme to add an "instrument" that suits each moon's arbitrary land and culture (citar for indian-redmoon, drums for african-greenmoon).

Oh! And Skyward Sword pulls it in the Skyloft plaza area.

Maybe it's the problem of trying to "think on the spot", but yeah... I can't think of many games that employ this method without just being an out-right song change than instrument change.  Zelda games are really sloppy for this and their "battle music" (which is just a creepy song thrown in and gets progressively louder the closer you get to your enemy).
6160  Media / The Soundroom / Re: ADX and Grandia on: April 03, 2013, 11:59:46 PM
I know very little about music, but I love when the music changes fluidly (your links are bugging up on me).I'm curious!  Keep us updated and maybe give the deets on assignment when you got it.

IIRC, if this is what I think it is, Banjo Kazooie does a great job of this and to a lesser extent, Skies of Arcadia.

Yeaaah b-b-b-but now we got INTERCHANGING GENDERS.  A GUY WITH A FEM-PERSO.... MENTAL INSIDE NOBODY DOLL (still the funniest abbreviation, maybe even better than Breath of Fire V's "SOL" system).

My posts can't all be winners. Guess I oughta make a better post then.

Not all of Yoda's are winners either (Annubis and Sensei get awesome zingers in though).
I think he was just sleepy when he wrote that.  I get pretty lethargic when I'm sleep deprived, and Yodes works one of the worst jobs for that.

Studying.  It ain't going well. It's too boring, so I take breaks, then breaks on top of pee breaks. BOO.

Sort of related note, I HATE when I'm looking up a definition, for example the word "DESPOTIC", and the dictionary definition gives me:

"The act of being a despot".

Time to enter the poor house...happily.
