6361  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: March 17, 2013, 12:20:01 AM
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.

Yeah?  YEAH???  GOOD FOR THEM.  >=(

Yeah, hopefully by 60% complete they mean "the game is done, we're mostly reworking graphics".  Hopefully it looks fluid at least.

TitS sounds promising.

I enjoy action RPGs as well; but how linear are the new Y's games? (I've only played Y's 3 back on the SNES)

Are there any ps1 classics people would recommend up there with the new PSP games?  I haven't played Chrono Cross, Grandia or FF9 (played a bit, but didn't finish) for example.

Listen to Eusis about Trails.  It needs it and it's one of the BEST kept RPG secrets for sure.

And you nailed a bunch off.  Go to, my fellow RPG-ikan!!!  Play and report back to us with progress~!!!

TitS is great~~ <3

I feel like joining in (I'm bored writing a long and boring paper that's not going well):

I'm sharing my painting.  As an art history student, I like the idea of "art on walls".  So since Yoda showed his that he wants, I'm showing you the one I adore.  I call it my "Rock n' Rolla Painting".  I love the amount of colours and I want to go to there.

Deer on campus!!  I love when they come out.  Bad shot, so here's a better one I took in Spring last year:


This is one of the "trendy" statues in front of the latest fancy condo in our city.  The other two horses are neighing and the eating grass (or concrete).  I like this one because it's clearly lifting its tail to take a shit.

This is *ALL* I've had time to draw... Too many goddamn projects.  I kinda like it, new stylez.  Working on this, and *SECRET* picture Mongoosey knows about.... it's a cactcus with penises.  jk...
I recently got into Drakengard artwork (guess why), and wanted to try more "fantasy" things.  It's tough n fun.
6373  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tetsuya Nomura on Versus XIII and Next Kingdom Hearts: "Keep waiting... please?" on: March 14, 2013, 05:01:29 PM
I wouldn't have any problem if they change their name to 'Enix Eidos'.

Might happen at the rate they're going at.

The company NEEDS Versus, needs to get FF14 off it's ass, needs some other remake or surprise item, it needs to wow people again.  Eidos has really picked up the slack for them.

Aeo: How did SoM give you more to do in combat?
but Secret has the better tools

I think BBS would like a word with you.

Has the composer (name is lost on me atm) done anything recent?? =/
I feel like it just ended after that series.

Not a fan.  it's really "chaotic" (granted, it fit the game for that, but I don't find it as "listenable" on a normal basis).... hmm, then again, it might be perfect in that respect.  The tracks are pretty good, but I kinda like the more melodic D2 better

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXVEIXFVAiQ&feature=share&list=PL1300B7E63FAD5328  D2 Vein of Grief
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wr5VgYeSSSI&feature=share&list=PL1300B7E63FAD5328 Plains of Pity
http://youtu.be/rQY7D6fdU_k Twilight Hill -- which sounds like it came out of a SeikenDensetsu game

Hm, but now I'm curious for D3 since it's the NieR dude, and none of the composers from D1 and 2???  I think?
