Ironically, taking the "suck" out of Kirby meant taking away a pretty major design element for him (I though everything else made the controls iffy; controlling "car" Kirby was messy).  The music sounded like it wanted to lull you to sleep.  The challenge wasn't really there.  The game was extremely short (without doing quests, you could probably have it done in one sitting).

I *do* respect the challenge though.  Even though you couldn't "die" per se,  to actually get "Gold" ranks (or 'S' or whatever) was actually really challenging.

I dunno, otherwise, the game didn't appeal to me.  I like the more faster paced Kirby games.  The game looked brilliant and had a lot of creative ideas, but the gameplay just wasn't as exciting.

The Office:

Say whaaa?  Spoiler tags?!
So for the first time in 9 years, the Office tries something crazy~!  They show one of the documentary guys!!  OMG killer spoilz.  After what was a really, really sad but touching moment between Pam and Jim, they reveal the boom-mike guy, Brian.  It's a pretty daring move, where after 9 years of what was essentially radio silence, so I'm kinda interested but weirded out that they chose this scene.  It felt kinda hokey given the comedy genre, and not as fulfilling as I thought it would be (maybe because there has been so many crazy events happening over the course of nine years at Dunfer Mifflin they never really bothered interacting with any of them ...but a damsel in distress became a different story). Despite all that, everything leading up to that moment was perfectly touching.  Nevertheless, it does feel somewhat appropriate for a show in its last season.  So congrats!  They finally [fully] broke through that fourth wall!

Eugh, Andy's coming back in an upcoming episode.  While I love Ed Helms enough, his character knows how to be irritating and plays it straight.  I'm not one of those "fan pairing" type of girls; if the show shoves Jim and Pam together as a couple, then I root for it!  But when the show was trying to get us to cheer for Erin and Andy, I couldn't care less.  I like her and that intern better; Andy's just good at being annoying, and having him as Manager early on just cast a dark cloud for me.

Yodes:  Yeah. I wasn't crazy for it when I first watched it, when it was Season 1 of Parks and Rec.  I'm glad to hear it gets better, I'll def give it a shot!!

Except there was no actually limit on the number you could order (not at first, anyway, they added one later on) and the plan was that they would be made to order so it's not like a big order was preventing anyone else from getting one.  More orders would just mean more were made.  Obviously Digital River screwed up and that didn't happen, but I still don't see how that's PlayCanada's fault.  They haven't done anything wrong.

Hm.  Right.  Sloppy Digi River.  =/

Sora's Game of Thrones (Kingdom Thrones?) badass pose up there.

I'm sad to say I'm more excited for the 2.5 Final Mix (but I am really happy we are finally getting the Final Mix versions....2-10 years later).

Parks and Rec continues to be fucking amazing.

The Two Parties ep was my first Parks and Rec episode.  I was *really* impressed.  Not so much the girls side (the plot had potential, but they didn't play along with it -- that makes no sense for a comedy!!); but the guy's side was the ideal night for aaaannyone.  Hell, it was worth watching just based on everyone doing something they were crazy for.

Kotoura Ep03

- The karaoke bit when Kotoura got mad actually made me laugh out loud.  I don't do that with anime often.
- Manabe proves to be a badass, apparently.  Sort of a weird point, but he reminds me of what Fry from Futurama would be like if he were an anime character.  Dumb, but sweet.
- Blue haired girl has something up her sleeve... I can only imagine how sinister it would be?
- The short dude...kinda sucks.
- Still, despite the comedy, the show tries out for more serious tones at the end; it's surprisingly "ok" too.

It's exciting.  That means we're getting Final Mix?

omg omg... I had like the biggest teen crush on Jesse McCartney.

I liked Star Trek, Super 8 pissed me off though.  He didn't learn how to use less Lens Flares either.

Frankly, this could have been a LOT worse.  I can't help but think Hollywood wants Videogame adaptions to fail with the peeps they hire to script/direct.

Finally got an update on my Wizard's Edition.  UPS says it should come in by the end of the day on Monday.

So let's recap; I pay nearly 110 dollars for a special edition that comes in six days after release.  Yeah...

Womp womp.

If it makes any difference I got the game a WEEK early...but will all my fucking homework, you'll probably beat it months before I'll have a chance to.
6507  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem 3DS on: January 24, 2013, 03:56:20 PM
I think I'm finally going to buy a 3DS when this game comes out. I love Fire Emblem and this game looks SO much better than the last few entries. Love the series and simply must be able to play this game on launch day haha. Liz's preview convinced me. Just have to figure out whether to buy a standard 3DS or an XL (leaning standard since my brother has the XL and not only is it too big imo, but it makes the older DS games look a little fuzzy because they weren't meant to be on a screen that big). Am I wrong about that?

I had the original 3ds first.... I feel the XL is a MAJOR step up... both from a visual and ergonomic standpoint... also, I detect no fuzziness on any of my DS games (a concern of mine when I was purchasing as well)....

Well I slipped in Final Fantasy III for the DS on my brothers XL the other day just to test it and it definitely doesn't not look as strong on it. I can get a good conditioned 3DS for 80-100 bucks, whereas the XL's are looking to be between 150-200 and I don't know that I can justify that much of a price difference.

I wouldn't mind switching to a 3DS XL if for nothing else than the "3d angle" is way better. 
Small 3ds is *way* too picky: If you move like an inch off from being completely parallel from the 3DS screen -- then that's it -- it blurs.  I acutally find the statements about hurting your eyes somewhat exaggerated, it's the constant shift from 3D-to-Blur that hurts my eyes if I shift my weight around even a little too much.

Your wish is my command.

I knew this would happen.

Whiie~!! :D

I kind of like the constant reiteration of how things are done. It's nice to get that feeling of handholding right now, because fighting can be a kick in the groin. Also, as awesome as the wizard's compendium is, I think the writing may have been rushed somewhat. I found a typo in one of the stories (prince and the lion). Not huge, but it's a statement to the editor for not catching it.

I have renamed all of my familiars except Esther's and Swaine's initial familiar. My mighty mite is known as Dingus, and true to his name, he has accidentally attacked a number of catchable familiars on me....fucking Dingus.

Argh!  Yeah, same keeps happening for me, which is brutal for the quest...
Long the names.

And yeah... lots of angry nerd rage about the LEs.  I wonder how they'll compensate lots o' angry people. =/

i'm naming all my familiars the goofiest names i can.

Mightarded is my main thing with the sword.
Boogibitch is my ghost.
Shitcake is that fairy.
HOTAMBU is that sun-like thing... I get worried about doing this because if I ever look up a FAQ on how to upgrade or find them, I won't know their real names. D:
