Also, anyone ever heard of Attack on Titan?? It's becoming an anime too soon... I dunno, this series sounds like it warrants a checking-out. :D

Hey, I pointed out that show when the lineup for the Spring was first announced.  Believe I called it something like a "must see".  But nobody ever listens to me...if you did you would be watching Blast of Tempest by now ;)

Haha, sorry Kev, posts go pretty quick on this part, and I guess I'm so used to seeing such typical run-of-the-mill "average high school student" shows that I have trouble listening to an anime recommendation.  I'll keep an eye out for more of yours, I think you're a cool feller on the forums anyhow.

Love how the trailer is two minutes long and gives no actual information about the game.

...wait, I don't love that.

That's japan for ya!  They spend the first minute of a "teaser" touting the long legacy of the series, and the other minute showing off what can be described as "nothing important".

...I like the original Atelier formula and all, but anyone ever wish they'd try the more RPG-oriented route again like they did for Iris??  I mean that insofar of a more in-depth battle system and bigger emphasis on story/world than characters.

BLATANT SELF-PROMOTING: Please visit my Dev Account for a lovely anthropomorphic version of the X&Y starters~  Lov ya~!

The whole Pokemon culture for who is better is amazing to me.  Game-wise, I find it too easy to really care about who I pick, most can get you by, and you're pretty well off if you main three of varied elements.  But I hear head-to-head it gets really intense.

Kotoura was all serious-ish this week. :(
Anyone else think the female detective was Manabe's mum?  They're a lot alike!

Also, anyone ever heard of Attack on Titan?? It's becoming an anime too soon... I dunno, this series sounds like it warrants a checking-out. :D

EDIT: Yes.  Yes it is becoming an anime, it has a pretty awesome PV too

I choose the one I like most aesthetically.

I wouldn't mind another Iris-like series with a bigger emphasis on story and battle.  I think I've skipped through about 80% of cutscenes in this game, and probably the bigger shame is the impressive world they build up but don't really dive into...

New trailer for A15

She looks more "dusk-like" than Ayesha (almost matching the sky colours on the Ayesha boxart).  I don't really dig on pigtails though.... And yet ponytails are surprisingly rare on these girls.

Another photo of the people from popular memes.  At least it also contains a meme, so it's cool and kinda funny. :D

URL says it all; and these shots are always ceaselessly pretty.

I need to live this life.... D:
...Actually no, I'd be too much of a pussy to try. Dx

Punny, and awesome.

^ Eugh.  THose are one of those movies I've been disgustingly curious about; but because A-N-Y-O-N-E I ask about it says "Um, yeah, it's ok", and I avoid it.
The biggest plus I hear is about Kat Dennings and her ample bossom.

I watched Quest for Camelot.  Y'know -- that animated Warner Brothers movie from 1998 with a ton of talent but in a shitty movie.  The premise is cool enough, but everything else is hilariously bad and suffers from trying too hard.  I don't get why the leader heroine looks more realistic than just about everyone else in the film, her love interest especially who has a sort of blocky face.  And no song was worse than in their "romance duet" when she and he (a blind hermit) sing "I see the world through your eyes" -- which I guess is meaningful because he's blind or something......idunno...
Gary Oldman was a waste of talent here...And to go back to the poor Blind Hermit, Cary Ewles in NO WAY matched his singing-voice; adding to the ha-ha's.

I'm a big fan of animated films, I guess that's why I took the dive on this one.  But I am looking forward to more about Disney's "Frozen".  They *finally* have a teaser concept art image.

I was cooking today and caught My Little Pony on.  I decided to give it a watch, see what the fuss, fandom, and fanatics is all about.
I didn't fall in love, but I *get it*.
It's just a light, fluffy show where nothing too-too terrible happens.  It's cute, girlie, happy, magical, and silly.  Essentially, there's little to hate -- except [gasp!] the fanatics themselves.

The Office almost warranted a spin-off featuring Dwight... after the episode "The Farm", I'm glad they pulled that idea away.  Either way, the show is wrapping up his character arch, Dwight is the proud owner of a bigger farm. 

Parks and Rec was fun. I liked seeing "Leslie's porno", and I like when she and Ron have their moments together; their relationship is the epitome of how "opposites attract".  And oh man...Jean Rafio's sister... weird.

Archer was a lot of fun.  After a slow start this season, its been picking up a lot a lot!  Some good action, and I loved the way Archer's "daring rescue" was animated.  Pam and Kreiger[?] (that doctor/scientist dude with the virtual anime girl) continues to be disgusting (I think he fucked that pig for one... Pam's impersonation of Lana was spot on).  Also there's moose in mousse.

I want to watch 1600 Pen...I had a crush on Bill Pullman when I was young... and now too, but he's gotten a bit old, and probably smells like old people smell.  ....

I hate to say this but I somehow like the older layout for that castle. It looked more castle-like rather than the more boxy fort like structure they replaced it with. Maybe its the windows or the lack of a staging area.

Oh well, they'll get another chance at it next year when the teenagers come back to burn it down again.

I think the point here is:
(a) Some assholes would actually burn down a park, for whatever goddamned reason.  I honestly think destroying public property, especially a "free play place" set up for anyone, is disgusting.
(b) Beggars can't be choosers.  I think it's wonderful people would come together to rebuild it.  I've been at the old one myself, I loved the hell out of it when I was younger (Toronto is one town over for me).  The important thing is if the new one has a lot of passages. :D

About two towns west of Toronto was this "secret park".  It was THREE (kid-sized) stories tall, tall slide at the top, two wooden houses (girls loved it) and it had a FREAKING ZIPLINE.  It's gone now, but I'd be damned if it wasn't one of the coolest parks on the planet.

It's Makoto Shinkai weekend at Crunchyroll!  Meaning all of his wonderful films are available to watch for a limited time.  If you haven't seen them, then fix that!  The Place Promised in Our Early Days and 5 Centimers Per Second are my favorites.

That reminds me, I watched the most recent one "Children who can hear the voices lost beneath the earth" (or whatever its called) a couple months ago and thought that it was actually fairly mediocre. Granted the visuals were nice despite the J.J. Abrhams level of bloom going around and going for the Ghibli feel didn't hurt it at times (like when the female tried to be more than rescue bait, and the oldschool feel in general), but the plot was a mess, filled with cliches and plotholes.

There were so many goddamn instances in the movie where something happens and then just stops and never comes back up again like the younger protagonist's village and friend who's entire screen time is dedicated to expositioning about the boy or the Illuminati agents who get ditched at the start of the adventure phase of the movie (I suppose that they needed to return to their home planet since they're no longer needed here). And of course all the Ghibli cliches are there, but even more so, as they weren't really part of any message so much as obligations to fulfill.

Agreed 100%.  It was obviously a love-letter to Ghibli, but it missed by a mile.
I think it would have been 10x better if a premise like that was made into a longer TV show; but the fact the plot is about this mysterious and wonderful "other world" but then spends the first 40 minutes in the human world there's little time for much else.  It was wonderfully creepy, then utterly fantastic, then.... nothing.  The ideas were bigger and more grand than the film could carry.

I also fucking hate plots that end...
"Oh, ok -- Bye guys!!  It was a grand adventure!  Well besides the fact I almost turned into a dead woman; and Teacher-Commando-Dickface is blind and I guess he's staying behind with people who shun him; and that poor little mute/dumb girl is gonna stay that way because her parents couldn't keep their pants on (for ____? reason); and that Ghibli-boy was alright."

*Real life*

I grew up a little!  Guess I learned something from whatever just happened.  Wait, what happened?  lol, silly me.  Off to school I go!

Also, I hate 5cm Per Second because after spending years wanting to hook up, they fuck it up because they can't get on fucking Facebook or some shit.  I find Makoto Shinkai overrated if it weren't for the fact he's got a great vision and eye for flare and fresh ideas.

Atelier Ayesha - The game is surprisingly addictive for a boring cast and unrealistic plot (insofar Ayesha acting so nonchalant that her sister has been missing for years for no explainable reason??)

Can anyone answer:  Is the dialogue worth reading?  It starts really slow so I usually end up skipping it 80% of the time....  Also, I have a bit of lag, does anyone else??

Ah well, alchemy is a lot of fun anyways and the character models look better than ever~!

Can you use your "I work at an RPG site that loves the shit outta your shit" powers to get an inside scoop?

Love it Parn!  I just need a gif now of Milhouse playing Bone Crusher or whatever. 

Many heavenly things.
Some of which are actually making me depressed that I'm without.  FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS.
