And yes, the anime is absolutely horrible.  I'm amazed that with the Tales of budget they can't afford better quality.  Even Gust games have better animation.  Ar tonelico 2's looks lovely.

Xillia's is 1000x better at least, actually.

A feeling I had about this game from the get go was finally proved undeniably true today. The 'T' rating is hurting the narrative badly.

This story is all but visibly bulging through the restraint cracks the 'T' places on it. The scene in question which pretty much solidified this in my mind is

Code:
the retaking of Wallbridge Fortress where Richard goes loco
and carves a minion up after an obviously evil resurrection.

This story wants to be dark, it wants to be gritty, but because it's T rated,
a JRPG, and originally for the Wii you can pretty much count the stitches covering the neutering surgery.

Also on the subject of the same scene; my suspension of disbelief, which seems to be higher than most on average around here
is buckling. 'He was bleeding like crazy just a moment ago!' Umm...his clothes aren't even ripped...even PS1 era T-rated games
can show blood and battle damage. Lazy with the character modeling much? It's another thing that hurts the narrative.


Dude, it's never been done well....  Obviously, would it kill them to try?

My bigger complaint, since I already expect that out of them in Graces, if why the fuck are the anime sequences so shoddy looking?  Budget reeeaallly must have taken a hit there, the frame rate and consistency is awful, the skit faces look pretty bad too.  I'm glad Bamco went to UFO Table. x(

It's probably easier to make hair look better when it's darker. All the cleavage and ass modeling they've got and hair still looks a little bit off.

Edit: I don't care for the Femshep image they picked for the CE. The male one looks a bit stoic but Fem looks a bit greazy, like she just got done doing space pilates.


This makes me sad because the new artist Bioware hired after seeing his awesome fanart is... fucking awesome.  Weird direction they took with fem-shep, the artist is much better than that.

How come she looks NOTHING like Yvonne Strahovski?

Miranda didn't really either...  Fucking Kristen Bell looked like ass in assassins creed.
Say what you will, this is better than most fanart

I call horseshit on the puny sizes here.

You should have said 'puni', because that would have been eh.. puni? Barrel!

I had a size S once. It was a GBA one with the text 'Wil je met me linken?' (Do you want to link with me?). Other than that it's always L-XXL. Oh, and I got some yoga pants from Sony for some reason. Size L. Donated them to charity, then felt kind of bad about it, because they were poorly made and hideous.

I got an S-sized 3DS workout shirt (it's all porous and little tiny holes and breathable and shit).  Weird offer.

I got a shirt from NISAmerica because I won their banner contest thing way back when (ie; Disgaea 1 days). It had those creepy green plant girls from Phantom Brave on it... I keep it cuz I won it.

Got a Batman Ark City.  It's pretty badass, but the bloody batman makes it hard to wear... and it's cheaply made.

I did however buy the ballin' Metroid
shirt
(the teal one up close).

I think Diablo II came out when I was still in freaking grade school... good grief.  Blizzard, what the hell??

I don't really wear that style of shirt casually anyway; maybe I'm just too formal. I always planned to use it as a nightgown.  I use my Catherine one as a nightie, too.

I'm the exact same.  I have a few game shirts, they're all thrown into "PJ" drawer.  Tshirts, especially graphic tees, just look kind of silly on me. 

Jeez, tiny people here.  I'm an XL myself.  Mind you I'm in pretty good shape, I'm just big.

If a shirt is too big you can usually find something to do with it.  But if a shirt is too small...

I wants pics of the giant muscles.
And yeah, good point.  Better a shirt be too big than small.

Sailor Moon's ending was absolutely perfect. (Ep 200 that is)

Lain's was nice, too.

What happens??  End my childhood wondering!!

Size L only....
I love how they assume fat nerds as the major demograhic.
Ah well...another gaming PJ.

He put that s*** on everything.

I got yelled, actually yelled at, for the stupidest thing at work I couldn't make a sad or guilty face.... I smiled the whole time.  It had to do with stickers.
6192  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nomura talks KH3D with Famitsu, can't give details about Versus XIII yet on: March 15, 2012, 02:45:38 PM
I don't know, the impression I get from Versus is less one of development hell and more that they announced it way too early and haven't actually been working on it for most of the time.  You keep seeing these stories (and I mean relatively recent stories) about how "after game X is done we're going to work on Versus", but if they had so few people working on Versus all this time then why did they announce it so soon...

And then there's the revelation S-E made after Type-0's release that development on the game didn't really start until two years after it was announced.  Before that it was nothing more than some ideas and concept art.  I get the impression that Versus might be similar.  Sure they had that trailer way back when, but that was all pre-rendered stuff, nothing to do with the actual game.

The real question is why does S-E announce these games so early?

Zero went through a shit load of changes over the course of development.

I wonder if Versus got reworked following the negative backlash of F13.

I think he voice actors all did a damn good job.  A shame the script they're given is ...pretty bland.

I'd say Sophie sounds bad... but ... well.  Can't help a character.

Theres only a few little treks I like having a buddy for.  The pink sand desert for one, it helps to have each other fly through.  I think buddying up is gonna be hella hard for an entire game.  I might get my white rob to look more "offishal".

Took me FOREVER to find that fucking achievement flower in that dessert (literally, needly in a haystack), one person got it with me.  Makes me especially happy if I can help peeps get cool stuff - but a lot just wanna run through.  The ancestors achievement creeped me out a little till I "got it".  I got lucky with the meditation one, I think some player went to take a piss.
