It's fine if that's all you want out of it. Entertainment-wise, it's... silly and fun. But as a companion to FFVII, it's pretty awful in the way it plays around with canon, invalidates major plot points (re: Sephiroth), etc etc.

Also, shitty character resurrection.

Advent Children was a mistake.  Cloud looked like a pouty bitch and acted like one, speaking Tifa (who looks like a Squeenix J-Idol) wants to jump into his face, box first.  Bringing Seph back as a last minute showdown was stupid and i could not explain the logistics of how it happened even under fantasy sci-fi pretenses.  (and the fact the Turks are all alive and well, but I think that's the one thing we're all willing to let go)

Eat ass.




I like the Risk.  ...(edit) AND RIKER!!!!!!! AGH

Great pics from everyone, especially Box-head John.
D-Ride reminds me of Neil Gaiman. :D
And DPK I'm jealous of your eyes, and the fact you can pull a light hair colour. D:

Final Fantasy III,the DS one.

Awful game,I still find myself puzzled why they bothered to remake it.

What exactly was the problem with it?

Dungeons that parallel the Diablo series: there's no goin' back, lacking a way to save before a boss hammers your ass to the floor. D:

Additionally your rant only helps to affirm my theory that the average person cares only for the character either in light of or despite of the work's overall story or plot coherency.

You could argue Tales games have been saved by this a number of times.

V ranks among one of my favorites for having equipment matter more than in just strength.  And actually being hard and having more than decent bosses.  I beat so many bosses with one character left standing and with 1/10th of my HP left.

I would love to take on X for the Vita if it's got the International Dark Aeon bosses -- I wanna do a perfect run for that one, despite everything else in the game (it'd be nice to control someone other than Tidus as lead beacon... seriously, who runs like that?  Yuna gets this too, I love how Squeenix makes it's women's arms flail like there's nothing but air puffing around their brains).

On the other side of the coin, the fact that they're remaking 10 as FF6 is blueballed makes me the saddest gamer ever... D:
That game is amazing and warrants a remake more than most games that *have* been remade.

I wanna do a run against Ozma in 9 too.  I was too young the first time, and I hate the amount of grinding you gotta do in that game for the weapon skills.  Disc 1 sucks balls too with the # of Beatrix battles.

FF7 is great too, but still fine without a remake.  Bitchy fans can wait a bit and wait for the gas cloud to lift from the way Nomura put his "creative touch" into it and ruin follow-up titles by infusing them with Japanese-pretentiousness and pissy-teenage-acting-20+-year-olds...

Star Ocean 3 is what made me quit video games.

If SO3 made you quit video games SO4 would make you become the new Jack Thompson.

Tried to play a bit more, saw a cutscene with Welch, and this was my response.

Fucking awesome B movie.

I & II.  I freaking hate ranking classic games high because they "started it all"; that's kaka reasoning since I can assure I had more fun with future titles for being less stoic by almost ALL means.  Bah.

Waiting for the smartass to put 13-2.

After the anime portrait option, I actually preferred the CGI ones... Myuria looks WAAAY better CG than anime... the anime one makes her look like the stereotyped "hot older woman" what with the lipstick.  Meracle's anime portrait look a bit stupid too in an anime style, the two bang-pieces that drop down cover the centre of her eyes.  Serah's anime shots make her look more stupid and aloof than she already is.  Furthermore, the general bright-palette of the anime menu kept me away (there are two pink cutouts for Lym and Rei, and two lime-greens for Bacc/Faize.... were there really NO other colours???).  I did alternate, and I did prefer Edge's anime portrait, the real-er CG one made him look like a cosplayer.  Lymle looked less creepy as an anime-girl too... but I find the Japanese and men in general like pigtails more than they ought to,

The CG ones are kinda awkward though... they're awkward hybrids of real and anime, moreso than FF ever hits, and hitting the "uncanny valley" of what cosplayers photoshop to themselves.

For once I agree with Kay, SO games are about combat and building characters. 
...and really?  Exploration issues?  I played that game for like 70 hours and never noticed or made a stink haha

I S-Ranked and got the full 1000/1000 for the game. Definitely my non-RPG Game of the Year.

Well, I get A's just fine (which is funny, I'd get shit marks yet do better in SA1 & 2)... I did watch these, so I guess that doesn't help my opinion of myself haha

For the life of me, I'll never understand how the shittier 8/16 bit instruments can out-do a more modern version.... better arrangement I suppose (GB vs DS: FFLegend 2, anyone?). :D
6313  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Sonic Generations on: January 06, 2012, 06:14:50 PM
Finally played this game... I think I suck at Sonic games.

Or lost my touch to say the least.  Not that I die a lot, but the controls aren't sticking to me.
I love the music though, maybe I'd do better playing if I stopped rocking out as I played.

But I love twilight!!!!! D:

I'll just leave this here, it's been circling the, uh, "art studio" peeps on my Facebook...

The fact that you're going through all that is making me anxious that I'm forgetting something important. I hate when profs can't get their shit together and are a mess.

Prof: I don't need a hardcopy for this assignment, it's digital only.

.: Assignment Due-Date :.

Prof: Remember to submit your hardcopy to the Psych office.

Student: You said we didn't need to...

Prof: We need it now.

(I actually printed a hardcopy that day... JUST IN CASE.  It's like knowing to expect some sort of bullshit).



I actually passed that class I was supposed to fail.  I didn't pass by much, and my GPA just took a hit (I'm an above average student.... but I think UofT's standards have sunk, because there's a lot of dumbfucks in my class).  I believed in god again (failed midterm, fever while studying for exam, unread chapters being read for the first time in exam study time). x(
