6331  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: January 08, 2013, 12:13:48 AM
Family Guy - I tuned in and watched with my folks (they love watching the fox animation block).  The episode started pretty strong, parodying the Monty Python opening with Family Guy characters (fuck, I nearly forgot how trippy and weird it was) and using an actual clip ("...Its!!").  It also does a few jabs at current TV.  It makes fun of the poor art of Bob's Burgers, and also has a TV hypnotize Peter into thinking Breaking Bad is the best thing on TV.  Normally I'd have no beef, but lately I've enjoyed those shows more than Family Guy...soooo uhh.... that leaves those jokes to kinda fall flat.  The rest of the episode took place in space -- unfortunately something The Simpsons did better  15 years ago.  There was also a really stupid joke about Chinese and Japanese which was seriously no better than when Disney made its anti-Japanese wartime propaganda film (there was probably a bunch of ways to do a joke like that, they chose the simplest and tasteless, worse yet, it doesn't feel like it's even trying to make a joke... I've come to hate FG humour for this; that and a lot of their 'spoof' parodies amounting similarly to "non-jokes", but just ridiculousness for cheap laughs as a metaphoric "applause" sign flickers).  A few good moments, like any Family Guy ep., but I've taken a bit more of a shine to American Dad these days.  Nevertheless, curious about the live-action stuff Seth Macfarlane has on the boiler.

Bob's Burgers - A good episode that took the parent and kid who have the least amount of chemistry to match them up.  While it didn't really work, the antics were still great.  I've come to notice this show isn't the *best* for big laughs, but the humour works, and unlike Family Guy, features a family that actually does love one another and tend to work better all the more for it.  I love the puns too.  Piss on all the people who think puns are lame, a good one is awesome!!

Elementary - Glad to see it's back on!!  I can't say I'm crazy about Watson playing "second fiddle" so well (previous iterations have Watson/Sherlock dialogue to be much more give & take, even if Sherlock is doing more work).  Nevertheless, the show does a great job dealing with original cases and material keeping the mysteries fresh and interesting (using a bit more logic than CSI's "magic forensics" to solve cases).  Having a *special gues star* can sometimes take away from the magic of solving a crime, but good to see the lead ups to it.

Wow, that's pretty ok.  It may not be any CS4, but hey, free is still fuckin' free and great.  It's not the CS# that matters, it's how you use it! ;)

Sorry it's late, but thanks a bunch so far for the selections here. :)
Some are my taste, some not so much, but I love the variety you guys are all providing. :D

Also, I never once said I hated the dungeons or the bosses of TP (except for the first one since that was a very basic forest temple dungeon and nothing really thrilling to write home about). I just wish the rest of the game didn't fall so short on the other fronts (dat Dominion Rod would've been awesome if there was any reason to use it outside of its dungeon beyond opening the occasional doorway; Gale Boomerang was OP'd and either needed a later upgrade to make it into it or make the bow more than slightly better at the range department compared to it, even with bomb arrows; teh Spinner wtf; wolf form moar liek puppy form; Light Sword, I can't tell if its doing more damage to anything other than those sudo wizrobe enemies from the dungeon you get it in).

Yea, that was another aspect that I didn't like. All the new items that were ridiculously cool (like the ball and chain) were pretty much useless outside of their respective dungeons.

Well, finished OoT. I have a desire to play Majora's Mask, but that game is a major commitment that I don't think I'm willing to make right at this moment. I guess I'll get back to Xenoblade Chronicles. Maybe I can get it finished before Sly 4 and the new Fire Emblem game are out in February.

I hate that argument about the tools.  People say Zelda games are linear, so when they let you pick the last three in whatever order you wanted (Snowpeak, Temple of Time, and the City in the Sky), so it would be hard to apply those tools in another dungeon if you don't have the tool from another one (there's always side content and the final 2 [small] dungeons to use them in. 

Dincrest pretty much hit the nail on the hammer.  At least for most things.  There's a lot of games or song I feel less than warm about at first, but are then the ones I grow to love more than the songs that I adore by the first time I listen to it.  FF9 was certainly one I didn't appreciate right away, took over a full 10 years before I gave it a serious go.  I didn't think much of Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs either, but now I watch it *at least* once a year.

So many people *finally* complimenting TP?????

Oh my god.... the cycle.... it continues~!!!!

Fav female is gonna be an interesting one.  Usually demonstrates what Japan likes in women compared to NA a bit (in saying that, I think Yuna might rank quite high).

You think Yuna wouldn't rank high in NA?

The X-2 version might.

I meant in japan, sorry for not making it clear..

We all told Klyde to skip Rorona but he just wouldn't listen...

Heck, even Gust is skipping it with their Vita re-releases.  They did Totori, are working on Meruru, but haven't said a peep about re-releasing Rorona.

That's actually kinda funny.

A a piss on Gust for making a loli-Rorona and getting too scared to age her.  RUINED.  Her game sucks, made worse by a child version. T_T

Anywways, for whatever the reason, I'm happy to fuck to get Ayesha (even thought he Arland series left a bad taste in my mouth)

TP is my favorite based on atmosphere alone (and yeah, even IF Ganon does come back, it's probably the coolest he's ever looked.... them corn rolls and golden tiara thing actually work on him).  Midna hasn't come close to being replaced, and I think it looks amazing still.  Fuck, I'd take an HD version of it in a heart beat, flaws or not.  While I was able to get through that stupid hookshot game, I think I *hated* (with a feverish passion) the two times you visit the Lost Woods even more.  I can't beat that part without getting the palms a bit sweaty from always moving around.  If it's not for the fucking skull kid, it's that stupid jumping statues minigame.  I hate that, and the one "race" you have with the fucking Wallmasters.  Fuck those fucks.

FarCry 3 is awesome.
Sort of.  This game actually pisses me off, but I keep coming back to it.  It's a good challenge that way I guess.  I really don't like doing the Rakyat [?] challenges, and predator-type animals tend to come up at the worst instances, but it's fun to do stealth.  Apparently some reviewers had the cojones to say "THE GAME'S GRAPHICS ARE REPRETITITIVE".... well GODDAMN, WHEN I HGET SICK OF LOOKING ATA TROPICAL ISLAND, I"LL LETT YOU KNOW.

I just noticed the 25th anni logo has all the other ones in it... that's pretty cool~! :D

To be fair to FFVI, FFIV's melodrama loses a lot of its kick when you know that everybody's just going to get better anyway (aside from Tellah who was an old man who got progressively worse as you leveled him and had a terrible gimmick ability).

Oh man, I can't recall... did he actually lose stats?

ANd yeah, the melodrama is pretty thick in those games.  I think the lack of dialogue may actually be a plus on its end.

Might as well put this now.

Shame it took three games to get that bit out.... though it'll probably be coming back when/if Versus comes out.

And a shame we only get "the Ghost of Etro" in 13-2....good grief.
6343  Media / General Games / Far Cry 3 on: January 04, 2013, 10:05:11 AM
One of the best games of the year according to reviews.  I'm loving it like crazy myself, anyone else playing???

Nothing better than being prepped to take on an enemy base (alone, James Bond style, of course *groan*), only to have a tiger or big ol' teddy bear right beside you that needs to be taken care of first.

That lego lotr game is getting good reviews
If "so-so" means "good".

I remember Tales of Symphonia being too hard when I was a kid.

Tales of Symphonia release date: July 13, 2004.

when I was a kid.

God damn it, I feel old today.

I remember walking my dog that Summer morning, my dad was gonna drive me to go get it after I took her out.  I just finished Grade 10.  I was so happy a Tales game was coming out, and for me to sit down with and enjoy during the summer time ...I wanna be young again....!!!!!
