I love games that throw their genre into their title name

I hated MM merely for the fact that I was forced to play as kid Link for the whole game.

I didn't mind it thanks to the Bunny Hood and eventually the Gilded Sword giving you some badly needed basic combat reach. Additionally the Zora masks basically makes you into a bastardized version of Adult Link and is a good substitute for the Gilded Sword if you're playing minimalist or something.

I'm actually really fond of the arsenal Link gets in this title.  Granted the tools aren't nearly as creative as future installments (the fucking Spinner and Ball & Chain -- BITCH PLEZ!!! ...but a FUCK on the Vacuum bullshit).  But the Swords Y. Link gets are pretty awesome, plus some of the creative uses of masks (even aside the Deku, Zora, and Goron ones) is great.

I'm having trouble picking a favorite Zelda these days otherwise between what Nostalgia yells at me and what innovation brought into it.

Raze's posted picture angers me.... >:(

I thought if anything suffered in Radiant Historia, not so much setting, but the interface was pretty "bleh".  The menu and controls didn't feel to responsive and lacked a sort of finesse you see in other titles.  And for a game with such awesome 2D graphics, it was kind of left only to battles.  Raynie had giant dotted eyes, but Stocke had eye-whites and a mouth.  Then Rosch rushes in being twice the size of every damn character.  Other character sprites even got noses when no others did.  Then the frame-rate, again outside of battle only (in battle they were outstanding!), was pathetic.  Stock had a 3-frame running animation when his normal STANDING battle stance looked at LEAST 7.  And for that late a game in the DS cycle, and for how big the fields were, it's a shame we only had 4-direction treatment than at least 8 (again factoring in to why the game felt weird to play sometimes, it does sort of feel restrictive).

I ramble.  But yeah, for a game about time travel, the game was surprisingly linear.  I guess the fact you could technically go to any point you wanted despite all that was good though.  I like how at least the bad ending showed pretty dire consequences; half of the CC/CT ones are...sorta stupid, and FF13-Poo didn't even try at all to make a good story let alone an [alternate] ending.

EDIT: Speaking of ludicrous or "convenient" plot elements -- anyone else *hate* that a major plot point involved going into the ocean to retrieve the engine of an ALIEN...ALIEN spaceship???  Not to diss on Starky, he is adorable... but both he and the shit as a plot device felt incredibly contrived.

Only Agent D could hate on a movie where a mostly nude christina ricci is chained to a radiator.

She looked like she had rabies in it... the giant eyes didn't help

I wonder how much of this cutoff was nerdrage and how much of it was Battleship bombing at the box office and the powers that be not exactly seeing dollar signs with Bay.

I'm glad Battleship bombed, proves there is some sense in movie-goers.

All my credibility... LOST in a single topic... D:

Not the best episode, but they do set a high standard each week, so...

Ep10 Impression:
- Earth lost a powerful bender this week, but I was happy to see her cause hell until then by destroying a ship!
- Always a pleasure to see Tenzin kickin' butt as well.  Who are the other White Lotus' if indeed only Tenzin and his family can air bend??  Are they just random ninja/monks?
- The dramz otherwise wasn't too compelling (even between Pemma and Bei Fong -- it was definitely unnecessary)
- Fart bending A+
- Curious how Asami and her "shade of green" is going to fit into her relationship and maybe even willingness to help Team Korra
- Dante... freaking... Brasco.  Love~!!!! (:  Good to have him back, can't wait to see what goes down.  The man always sounds like a teenager though -- great for a voice acting career, I suppose. ;D
- Baby Rohan.  Any LotR jokes yet?
- To Agent D: I agree, it was kind of a bland episode, but definitely a good way to set up the season finale: the sort of "calm before the shit storm"

My dad gets me so goddamn stressed, my skin itches and twitches (also, just in general, it's been some bad, bad times).  But then he gets kind enough to buy me ram for my MacBook (2gb---> 8gb! :D ).  So how exactly am I supposed to feel???

I'm fucking tired of Samuel Jackson. Yeah I know he rules and is a badass, I'm just tired of him.

If Sammy L was Robocop, that's one thing (and could be hilarious), but it ain't.... what's the beef? =/
But I can see what you mean; he's been typecasted as an amusing jerk.

Saw Dark Shadows.

It was fucking awful.

Burton has lost his touch so bad it really hurts.

Thanks for changing your WotW. :)

This could be a fuckwin, or shit.  I'm curious if they'll make him move around more -- he was kinda stoic in the original (though it is a classic).

I found FF13-Poo funny in that way.  Losing was actually the better option if the Paradox Endings told you anything.  You actually kill Atlas, he rampages the world years later.  Wtf.

I'm also going to have to steal the phrase:
unshits it self.

I don't "lol" often...but today I did,

Congrats, Dark!  I'm sure it took a while!

Dark Cloud 2:  Is it just me, or is Max slightly a better character than Monica?  Specifically, her monster transformations seriously have NOTHING on just normal attacks and are leagues from being anywhere near as good as Steve/Ridepod.  And for that matter, the Left-Hand equipment can't really keep up with actual attacks.  Enemies are too quick to really get a ton of use out of ranged attacking...

I never used the monster transformations that much.  I only used Monica because she uses a sword and magic instead of Hammer+Gun, but indeed the ridepod was pretty good.  I don't remember magic being bad, but perhaps limited in usefulness?  Isn't there a lock-on feature because I cannot remember.

There is a lock feature, but it doesn't help when the strength is so low, usually doing about 1/4 of the Weapon attack.  Also, the individual differences in long-range attack between M&M is really obnoxious.... Max's gun is better at point-blank, which really harms it's use as a "projectile", and Monica's needs to charge to be more effective where, if it's already doing like a quarter of the attack damage, can have you in for a long battle. 
Monsters, besides the fact they don't have "weapons" to break, are annoying to level up, and again, just not as strong.  You didn't like using Max??  He's a tank!! :O

Radiant Historia managed to pull it off gracefully even if it was all too convenient at times (two timelines perfectly resolve and issue...ANY you're facing).  Oddly enough, it wasn't too convoluted to deal with two pretty different stories either.

FF13-2's writers should be ashamed of the hack story they made, but like Eus, I enjoyed the lot of it much more than I expected.  I just wish I played and had time to play it in Normal than Easy. x(
