I absolutely loved Legend of Dragoon. I thought it was too harshly criticized by critics back in the day and I still think that. Luckily Neal liked it too haha.

I love Neal for that.  If it's niche, chances are he's played it and loved it.  Everyone needs that type of fan to counter the popular/overtalked about opinion.  I count on Neal as a "hidden gem" finder at times.

I agree, I'm glad we have Neal for finding those unknown and unloved gems. :)

That said, I hated Legend of Dragoon, but at least I beat it. Hated the music (most of it), hated the combat, hated the characters, but I still beat it because IT WAS BIG FOUR DISC RPG ON PS1 HELL YEAH.

But still, I know lots of people did like it, so I'm glad Neal was able to show them some love.

Also, Jesters of the Moon is an awesome song. It works well both as a "quirky weirdos" song and a "these guys are creepy villains" song.

For RPGfan's sound guy, you have to admit the game was completely innovate for having its own MENU MUSIC.  Baller.
...I mean, it sounded like some shit you hear in a government building elevator, where it's sad and cold and boring to the ears, but it was there when no one else DARED. yea.

The Stig captured me feelings.  Ah well, at least it's still a summer release.

No. 6 is a futuristic/dystopia/utopian sci-fi yarn which delves into some nature vs progress areas all the while focusing a lot on two guys relationship. I guess part of the problem was it was somewhat all over the place for me. It couldn't decide if it wanted to be sci-fi, be a relationship show or be a commentary on society. In the end it somewhat lost what little direction it had, IMO. A shame, because I really enjoyed the first few episodes. And yes Dice you MUST watch Mushi-shi, I simply adore that show, Ginko is the bomb!

I always found if you're "interested" in an anime but can't get through it for whatever reason, it's best to jump ship to the manga which tends to progress quicker and with less bullshit (i.e.; filler) in between.

I got Mushi one net flicks, it caught my interest -- thanks for the heads up~! :D

I've been abusing the DLC maps in Fire Emblem and I feel bad about it. Poor Nanna...she can't even fight back.

I get sad playing that map because the characters make me feel like I"m missing out on something super cool

Finished No.6, wow, what a disappointing ending to a show I was enjoying. Almost done with Mushi-shi, awesome show, and just started Kokoro Connect, so far I am on the fence

I got bored of Kokoro Connect...a shame because the concept has a lot of potential for whack shenanigans.  Lemme know if it does get better!!!
What's No.6?  Not the submarine one, is it??? :O

And I gotta get on Mushi

Girls -- I watch the show on and off, but I think I can make a comment by now.  I think there's a bit too much hype around the show and some of it is reeally pretentious.  But for the most part, does a pretty good job.  I'm probably alone, but I get sick of the amount of sex stuff in HBO shows, it's a bit redundant and oddly expected.   Also, as I giant tomboy I have trouble with some of the excessive girly-ness; but overall (and to give the quick gist) t's a more down-to-earth continuation of Sex and the City.

Recent ep had some interesting nude scenes with Lena Dunham.  Good on her for not being afraid to show off an overweight body; but oddly enough, the excessive tats are what are turning me off from finding her overall look appealing.

It really helps that Kenshin really sidestepped a lot of the issues plaguing most anime by keeping the powerlevels bullshit down to a minimum. Especially given that fights were typically resolved through technical prowess, which translates far more effectively outside of manga/anime compared to the constant throwing of bigger beams/better swords/more robots at the problem until it either goes away or needs moar hotblood/power of friendship/cowbell to make it go away for good.

All I could think about was FF7 Advent Children hiting some awkward uncanny valley with that.

So I haven't been back to this game in a week and change, and I haven't really missed it all that much. It was a fun run, but looking back, I feel I had to take advantage of too many elements in the game to get by. I seriously overleveled trying to get everything, which made every fight simplistic. Most of the puzzles weren't that hard (I admit the one puzzle in the vault of tears was....annoying), and boss fights were simply a test of patience, opting to defend more often instead of gunning for that extra hit or spell. I enjoyed the silly humor of the fairy thing, but even as I type this, I realize I can't remember its name. Generally a good sign of a game's lack of staying power. Maybe it's because I rushed through it, but it's lost that appeal to me now.

Doubt I'm even gonna finish the post game honestly.

Back in the day, this would be a game I gameshark.  I'm not too amused by the gameplay elements, but I like the world enough to push on though, with codes.

Love the image; seriously, fucking Tales of games let you adjust tactics to limit how much magic they use, was this too hard to program in??? >=/

I'm inclined to believe the love is due to the relatively JRPG-famine we've been in.  Hopefully slowly fixed this year?????

I don't even think robots are cool



The only anime robot I like is Robo from Chrono Trigger.  And whatever the hell Guillo is if that actually counts.  I'm talking more "mechs".  Fucking Zone of the Enders has women in women-shaped mechas.... what the fuck?  WHY DOES A ROBOT NEED CURVES (don'tanswerthat).

The Office is a perfect shitstorm of a trainwreck.

Man the writers have no idea what they want to do with this, it sems.

THe last episode wasn't even funny.  It *was trying* to be more serious, so it switched the funny out, but...who cares?
I hate it though; instead of finishing it and leaving a great legacy, they're dragging it out and really ruining what I loved about the show initially.  They should have structured and ended it around M Scott's departure.

Ironically, Parks and Rec started out just as pure shit, a poor man's 'The Office' clone, but is a *way* stronger series in pretty much every episode season 2 and up (except "Sister City", that was awful and the one exception).

The last three Elementary episodes: Good-Meh-Great.

Archer has been a bit soft lately, it's capable of better, but still provides awesome character interactions.

I'm with Mongoosey on HIMYM ("him-yim" just made it easier to write the acronym, thanks Tunny!!) and Big Bang.  I find them average at best.  All Big Bang really has going for it are Sheldon and sometimes Penny.  HIMYM is a show better without its lead (who's just too boring).  The few eps the boyfriend showed me as shining examples are all I really like.

I don't have a ps3 and don't care about a ps4.

I don't care that you don't care.

But seriously, why would you even post in this thread if you don't care?  Why do people feel the need to broadcast things like this?

I blame Facebook and Twitter

I adore and endorse the above message and hope a report on changing youth attitudes post-social networking happens soon.

It's just an attempt to validate buying that piece of shit called the Wii. If Xenoblade had been on PS3 or xbob, or even pc, it would have been AT BEST a mediocre title. For some reason, when you have a mediocre game on the Wii, it becomes amazing. I bet if xenoblade were a DS title it would have been labled the best rpg ever.

To each their own, and I didn't beat it either, but the music and sheer size of places to explore is really something.  You get games like Borderlands or whatever that let you explore too, but none really tried explaining it with a twist that you're exploring a giant ass robot that's facing another giant ass fucking robot.  I don't even think robots are cool, but fuck, setting alone, it was something completely different.

Also, let's be honest.  The localization was fucken awesome in Brit-English.  REYN TIME.  That's all.
