The Office -- A one hour episode that they clearly had trouble filling in the time with.  Eugh, y'know, I was ok with M. Scott's departure for the first season, but with continuous disappointment, I consider the parts of the show that he was the Dunder Mifflin manager as canon and the rest taking place in some alternate reality.  They're focused on closing off plot lines.  Dwight and Angela, Jim and Pam (which is becoming more exhausting because neither are reconcilable), Toby and....the Scranton Strangler?? From like a few seasons back???  Huh.  Comepletely out of left field, but I've come to love Oscar for his sensible nature and occasional ability to bring up some great scenes.

Community -- you can tell the same people aren't involved with this season.  Ahbed gets the quote of the year, "I remember when this show used to be about a Community College".  It speaks volumes.  ACtually...

Archer -- ...kinda feels like this too, it's gotten a bit wacky and it lacks the same laughs it used to because the ISIS staff is becoming head-in-ass retarded.

Parks and Rec --  I do like the show seems to have found a proper villain for once.  The episode was pretty good though, silly and sweet.  I feel bad for Andy though.

Elementary -- I really like this show.  Good mystery!  It's less ostentatious than the BBC one, but contains some of the common cop drama of an American series.  The blend works though.

I also watched the First episode of "The Newsroom".  I'm mixed.  It's got a TON of potential, but I think it touts itself as being a bit smarter than it is... it's hard to explain it.  I also find politically driven material really hard to push and a tad irritating, even if it is well-meaning and makes good arguments.  I might stick with it, the cast is great, and the performances perfect -- the content, even if provoking, may be less so.  I thought, better than the epic speech in the first episode, the aftermath where the school sues for "psychological distress" or something was what *screamed* "modern day" America to this Canadian alien. ;)

New trailer is up with some snazzy fashionable clothing store music.  I'm kinda digging Motoko's new look the more I see it (I really started to loath the leggings, bathing suit, and leather jacket look from the animu).

Everyone is a bit younger, nice to see Aramaki with hair color.

Not an update post.
I think it's good I warn this because I like reviving topics and building hope.

If you are an avid video game paraphernalia collector... I *highly* recommend the Ayesha artbook.  I like the artwork for Atelier Ayesha much more than Kashida Mel's work for the Roro/Toto/Meru.  It's less soft and pretty, but a lot more fun and I think it suits the Atelier-world better.

Also a *big* round of applause to their graphic team, there are a bunch of (presumably) in-game advertisements that take common motifs and themes from early 20th century advertisements.  Worth it~

Skies of Arcadia's only real flaw is the battle system. Near the end of the game, battles take forever.

The Poké Noir is pretty amazing

I'd like Animal Crossing a lot more if the NPC interaction was more substantial. For a game that at least on the surface is so heavily based on helpin' out yr neighbors, they're pretty boring to talk to, shucks!!

That's kinda what put me off too.  Maybe I just didn't invest myself or enough time into it.  Maybe I'll giver it another go????

I feel like it should be a law for games: if there's gonna be lotsa dialogue, plz make it interesting.  The amount of cutscenes I skip these days is pretty high.

I'm not entirely sure a large pepperoni pizza can in fact feed a family of four anymore.

It can.  But is anyone really satisfied with just two slices (eventhoughthatsprobablyallyouSHOULDeat).

Hmm.  I remember my crazy diet days, fuck, I lasted on really little food.  It worked, I'm sure my body took a hit though.  I'd do stuff like cereal breakfast, wait 8 hours with tiny piece of fruit in between, then two slices of pizza (or whatever dinner).  Not nutritious, but by calorie levels, I'm sure I kept under the 2,000 mark easily.

These days, studying in uni, if I don't eat then my brain won't let me study.

...where was I?

Episode 5 was probably the funniest.  It lacked "real" plot-driven content, but probably got the most chuckles out of me.  Gonna watch Ep 6 tomorrow though. so I'll see if I agree or just generally hate everything about your opinion (I actually thought 4 was pretty weak).

Meanwhile, Spring Anime Chart is up.  ... I'm just gonna wait for word of mouth before I try these titles though. >__>

there is one going off on ebay for roughly 50.... maybe i should jump on it...

I saw a $60 for a used on Amazon... still I wanna grab it.

I heard they're making an HD one.... why no new info?????  WHAT A TEASE D:

Obv.  Skies for sure, even if the game gets repetitive and too easy by the end (You can easily buy full HP recovering items by the end of the game).

Now, since we ALL know Skies: FEENA or AIKA?

I love the obnoxious use of voice samples.

Maribelle: My flower died, can you talk to it Henry? [voice: Aww]
Henry: Nope, only living things [voice: SO LONG SUCKER].

Tharja: So [voice: Pretty much]
Gaius: What? [voice: Yuup]

Avatar: ... [voice: Hey].

I think it would have been better to voice it all (especially major cutscenes), or just do the classic "Zelda-style grunts".

I'm also trying to finally level up Donnel, the simple'tard.  The only way I found it possible was when I forged his bronze spear like crazy, then he finally became somewhat effective.  I hear he's a tank later on though.

NOPE.  Nintendo decided to artificially boost sales with a ton of Mario games and Donkey Kong remake.  Ah well, at least peeps will be happy with official date for Animal Crossing, I know lots of peeps will be happy with that.  ...not me. I don't really get AC.

I was really hoping for some 3rd party support.
6432  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: February 13, 2013, 08:56:09 PM
I like how all of us are playing FE.  I'm just playing and marrying them all so I can get cool characters.

ALSO.  Another Nintendo Direct press conference tomorrow.  If it's anything like the last one, I'll be excited.

I see psycho pass as an anime doonsbury.

Tell her you're a doctor-man?  And her subsequent, "Oh, you are?"  HEYO!

Congrats on the weight loss; I feel like a lot of peeps at the Fan have done so -- and good on them!

Fucking kids chapters are brutal.  I gotta "rescue" (the spell) their asses half the time because they forget they're in a Fire Emblem game where 1HKO's happen more often than I get hungry in a single day.

The game's plot also reminds me of that South Park episode where people from the future start coming to the past to look for work (and all this flirting in the game has me thinking of the big orgies that, unlike South Park where big gay orgies meant to stop the future population crisis, we're helping it on.

Anyways, Orwin is awesome; probably got it from dad, because the mum sucks beans.
