I dunno -- MAAAYBE I'm biased.  But Community was AWESOME this week. :D

Too bad he's busy playing.

So I watched a YouTube playthrough.  I'm glad I did, it's over in half an hour and really it is just a Caius fight (albeit a hard one-on-one).  However, it does give that 13-3 set-up.  But it's full of the emotional speeches that tend to run-on and are worth next to nothing unless you're really invested into the characters/plot. Serah and Lightning go on about "having hope" and all that. Meanwhile, you get to hear Yuel chipping in a bit by essentially saying the equivalent of: "I hate to say I told you so...but I TOLD YOU SO" about what happened to Serah.

Hm. The game doesn't give much indication to having Serah revive somehow, rather this seem to solidify her staying dead with Serah's spirit having "no regrets" and this serving as a new "reason to fight" or whatever conviction for Lightning. A bit of a pain speaking you go through so much for her in the first game to only have her, more or less, die again here.


The plot for this game is ridiculous as is... don't know what magic tricks they're gonna slug out for the 3rd go around.
Oddly enough, I hope it comes out quick to finish it. Nothing like a good cliffhanger even on a bad story to keep you coming back.

I'm more shocked Capcom has gone back to a very Japanesey-looking game.

-Tales of Symphonia is not the best Tales-game.
-Golden Sun is boring as hell.
-Super realistic grapics make games look really awkward or downright creepy.
-Dokapon Kingdom is more fun Mario Party 6 and up.
-Games have not gotten easier, because crappy level design/stupid AI does not equal a good challenge. Games have gotten less frustrating, which is a good thing!

Are you my twin brother?

Is there a brother named Tomara?

Red Dead Redemption, GTAIV = RPGs

Star Ocean = Sci-Fi RPGs.

I liked reading into Cloud's personality what I heard.... not the way he turned out in Advent Children as some prissy little emotional bitch.  If they're gonna J-drama a remake... I'd be happy without, really.

- Persona games... meh. Really? People like scaling one dungeon every night?  On that note...
- Dungeon crawlers do little for me.  Took Dark Cloud 2's bright fantasy colours to make me happy.

I don't get it, why complain about Persona if you don't enjoy Dungeon Crawlers in the first place... that's like saying that Metal Gear is a bad becuase I don't like to be stealthy.

The answer was there.  I did like Dark Cloud 2 a heck of a lot.  Unlike Yoder, I did like DDS2 quite a bit as well.  They can be good, but for the most part, few do them to my liking.  I like Persona to an extent, but I find the dungeons HORRIBLY drab and the (sort of) timed aspect of the game just something I'd rather not have to think about.  A potential release of P5 would definitely stay on my radar still though.

I good topics and I'm stealing them....

What are some of your more uncommon opinions about gaming??
We all have them, probably one of the main reasons we are able to debate here the way we do.

- Dragon Quest sucks.. lots.
- Turn-based is old and out-dated (unless it's changed up a bit...I like the spin titles like Radiant Historia added, or the speed and tweaked mechanics of FFX's).
- Motoi Sakuraba is one of my favorite VG composers (ranked among a few others, and even if he DOES rip himself off)
- On the other hand, Nobuo Uematsu is overrated.  Granted, he is good... but its pretty much only HIM and Nintendo getting orchestrated concerts.
- I think Tales of the Abyss is in my favorite video game story ever.  Luke one of the most human/best developed characters, and Ion as an NPC.
- Mario games have lost their touch.
- Skyward Sword was a terrible Zelda title.  Twilight Princess being one of the best.
- Zero Suit Samus looks stupid and ruined whatever air of mystery to Samus (and long wavy hair > mushroom head and ponytail).
- FF5 and 6 deserves a remake more/before than 7.
- Chrono Cross is a good follow-up to Trigger (while I thought the plot was top-notch, the writing, like a lot of titles of this time, was terrible), and the battle system was great too! Granted, I still think Trigger is outstanding as well.
- Tri-Ace is one of the best video game developers (although, I hear their latest Japan-only efforts were below par... here's hoping they come out of it, and Japan will finally gracefully move on from the PSP soon).
- Persona games... meh. Really? People like scaling one dungeon every night?  On that note...
- Dungeon crawlers do little for me.  Took Dark Cloud 2's bright fantasy colours to make me happy. And on THAT note...
- Level-5 is terribly overrated aside from a very, very few select tiles.
- WRPGs automatically earn one less star for being so...uncreative and essentially being Tolkien-rip-offs time and time again.  This is not to say they games are bad -- but creativity goes a long way with me. =(  Ohhh...elves and dwarves... again.
- Mario Kart Double Dash is one of the strongest racing games made (...mainly for the Co-op element...)

Besides that I couldn't help but wonder how hot she'll be to justify it.

I wonder how to keep plots fresh nowadays.  Seems like a lot of the good ideas have been used in destroying the world in creative ways.

Famitsu interview with Hideo Baba [Tales producer]:

Quote
The new game’s catch copy is: “Are you prepared to destroy the world for a girl?” This is related to the game’s story and battle system.
It is a mothership title (this was already known).
Until know, the series has beeen known for its “high fantasy,” with swords and magic, however, this time it aims to explore the world view through human civilization. It’s “modern and inorganic.”
“It’s a new world, you’ll compete in this story.”
“Of course, we kept in mind the sense of a Tales game, but the next stage that we are taking Tales to was a challenge.”
“Besides this title there are others under development. We’ll debut new content to everyone on June 2nd, look out for it.”

The first point is especially curious.  Sounds like you might be a sort of anti-hero for that one.
