@Grim, I agree with you for pretty much most of it. Although I did like the inclusion of
Quote
Talia
, I feel like the reveal could have been better. Though there were clues in the lead up to it,
Quote
Bane saying that "Everything has gone as planned" when talking with the board member who used Wall Street to make Wayne enterprises lose all its money and install him as chairman, even though the plan all along was to have Talia seduce Bruce and install herself as chairwoman. Also the scar we see on her back at the sex scene suggests something a little more than what we have seen of her up until that point.


The reveal itself could have been a little bit better I spose.




Spoilz now marked....

Quote
Bane has a similar scar as well.  Don't they do a "burn-initiation" ceremony in the League of Shadows???
But yeah, I knew something was up the second they showed the scar on Talia... movie's can't be subtle when you know the tricks of the trade.  When they showed that nuclear device: "Oh gee, I wonder what's going to threaten Gotham this time! >____> "
Poor girl, that's two for two that Marion Coulliard has been a villain in a Nolan movie. x)

Anyways, I was more disappointed with Bane's "reveal".  About two minutes after you find out that he was the "protector" he's shot dead pretty damn quick.

Strawberries in season so I thought I'd make strawberry cheesecake.

As usual with everything I make, it doesn't look that picturesque but it sure is tasty. :)



Haha, yeah, it doesn't look too pretty.... but goddamn, I know I'd eat till I'm stuffed stupid and happy. x)

Work today.  Lots of studying.  Did worse than I thought on a test (just barely passed; in my defense, I was in New York City the days before the actual test... soo... I DONT CARE, ITS AN EXCUSE AND IM STICKIN BY IT).
Playing KH3D when studying starts making me drool-at-the-mouth retarded in how numbing it can be to read.
6243  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What game related stuff do you collect? on: August 04, 2012, 03:04:00 AM
There's quite a few Persona related stuff out there. I've got quite a few of this.



They're so pathetically adorable. x)

Aaiiight... Here we go:


My art book collection.  Err, if this says anything about me, I don't really like anime -- I like video games. :D
This includes most (but not all) of the game art books I own, and doesn't include (a) the stuff I sold to peeps here (clearly), and (b) painters works from the Renaissance, Baroque, etc. and comic books (er, American ones).
Oddly included is a DevArt artists book (I have a few of those, I guess that one got thrown in by accident?)
The top white one that's hard to see is the massive Tales of 15th Anniversary artbook-cyclopedia, and the bright nameless one at the bottom is the Atelier Artbook compilation of Rorona, Totori, and Meruru.

Two more additions coming to this family soon: A Suikoden II artbook [!!!], and a FFTA2 ultimania-like thing (a game which has, EASILY, the most underrated artwork I've ever seen).

PS: feet!


Relevant given the amount of threads here that mention "FF".  The monster collection.  For tiny-ass figures, there is some awesome detail here (let's just say the Valefor shot has an eraser for size comparison) .  The Terra one obviously being my favorite. x)


Sin of sins, I like the $35 Tear Grants figure more than the $90 one released by Alter (I felt the cheap one got her "look" better... only thing is her titties are kinda eggplant-sized awkward).  That Luke statue is the coolest thing though, that is an Alter (with changeable head for short-hair Luke... butt fuck it, it ain't as cool as dickhead Luke).  For a cheap $15 figure, the Estelle figure is one of my favorites and turned out surprisingly well, where, unlike most depictions, actually got her hair colour close to how Fujishima originally drew her!  Estelle Nendo with an Angry Bird behind her, very cute.  The Samus Figma is awesome.... posing her is tough and painful (angular armor). And some Zelda Skyward Sword standee cutout of Link and a Twilight Princess cloth poster (the contrast is up way higher than the original art, it's stunning, it almost looks like it actually *glows*).

I got other goods, but this is the cream of the crop.

Can the esteemed RPGFan write up a petition?? :D

None of us are stupid enough to think that will work anymore. Or so I'd hope.

I keep an unfortunately optimistic head about things.

I now know how PC gamers feel?

You have to act like an asshole everyday on forums and give technical reason why you hate console games for that.

Love. x)

Kingdom Hearts 3D

+ Battle system
+ Graphics (extra points for 3D just being cool)
+ Music
+ Card Flick game
+ Tons of mechanics
+ Surprisingly monsters

- Dropping (really?  If you get caught in a boss battle, it resets the boss battle; worse is you fight them same boss between Sora and Riku)
- The time limit associated with Dropping
- Camera sucks dick, made worse when you're zipping around with flow motion
- Story of course.  Nonsense jibberish.

...I've become waay more handheld oriented these days than actual console gaming. I now know how PC gamers feel?

Or Chrono Cross with its ginormous cast.

Mesh as Macha!

Adoring the [new] under the sea, the forgotten version of it.  I gotta use it. x)

Back in HS, we always did "Under the sheeets, under the sheeets -- down where it's wetter, down where it's better"

Why the fuck isn't Suiko II on PSN??  Is it on Euro PSN at least?? =/
2 and 3 are the only ones I really cared about. Was 1 any good?

But anyways, Japanese developers can't blah blah blah, their quality has gone down and blah blah blah. We'll see where they are in 10 years.

The nervegear has its own battery so it's set to fry their brains if they try to remove it or if they're not reconnected to the game within a short period of time.

In retrospect, an off-the-counter device that connects to people's nervous systems sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen. =P

I giggled. xD

While spoliery, she didn't even mention the main spoiler, so you is cool.

I saw it last night and enjoyed it very much, except for the 6 teenagers behind us who wouldnt shut up and one decided to use the back of my chair to put their feet up despite their being plenty leg room (I'm 6'6 and I found it roomy, so their is no excuse), though I don't think I can hold Nolan accountable for that one.

Six-fucking-six?!?!  Holy shit batman (pun totally works here).
Yeah, I'd have used that height to intimidate them to shut the fuck up and get their feet off your seat.

My favorite is when I tell people to be quiet in class and they give me "a look".  Where, unlike a movie theatre, you pay $500 a class to get taught and people talk through it. Motherfuckers like that or any chatty-Cathy annoys the hell out of me.

But... I do find some people like that can easily ruin the quality of a movie.  I watched X-Men 2 with chatty butt-holes and everyone liked it more than I did.

I *love* hearing how Canadian athletes are doing....  Fuck, I'd rather hear about Phelps and any another gold metalists from any country than the bronze's and 4th places they're getting.  Put, alas, Canadian tv needs to prioritize Canadians...

Got KH3D

Maaan, Haley Joel Osment hit adulthood like a brick wall, what happened to his voice?  Must be the drinking.

Oh Stanley... yeah, he is messed up, but definitely a unique visionary.

Anyways.  I saw The Dark Knight Rises, finally.
Loved it.

Spoilz ahoy...

Code:
- Joker was definitely the better villain, but I thought overall, DKR was stronger as a whole
- Anne Hathaway certainly has come a long way since Disney's Princess Diaries, and how!
- I'm glad they snuck in some Scarecrow time
- After reading it here, yeah, I notived every time they said [u]THE[/u] Batman.
- [b]Main Beef:[/b] having just come from there and rewatching [the] Batman Begins, they put like NO effort into hiding that Gotham City was simply New York City.  I'm sure half the flick took place in Wallstreet, you can see The Freemdom Tower in half of the aerial city shots.
- ^ but kudos to Nolan avoid CGI shots whenever possible.
- I like all this internet hooplah about some apparent jabs taken at the whole "occupy wallstreet" thing or whatever.
- The Bat is just plain unfair.
- Oooh, Pavane for a Dead Princess. Glad it was used, that's one of my choices for "classical songs I like that no one knows about"
- Fucking rich people; a ball with rose petals [i]always[/i] falling?? D: I bet they disintegrate when they hit the ground, or if they fall into a drink, they turn into ice.  Why? Because rich people.
- I *loved* how Blake was used (friend tells me he's a combo pack of all 3 Robins); but I'm glad they were subtle with it, something about Robin sort of throws off the more dark vision of Gotham city to me.
- Bane was awesome, 'cept he went out with a bit more of a [i]whimper[/i] despite the literal [b]bang[/b] that ended him.
- I have a thing for guys who like sports -- current boyfriend is into sports.  He pointed out that the (IIRC) Footballer who ran across the screen when everything turned to shit was a legit player and maybe the only pro-player [he was able to see].
- Perfect end to the series too. Hope Alfred joined the fun, and Selena certainly took that to an 11 by actually being there.  I'm glad it is over more than sad, I'd love to see what else Nolan can cook up.
