It'd be weird to do FFX because to me it's not the graphics that really date the game. It's the terrible dialog and voice acting.

I blame the dialogue more.  Bender DiMaggio is awesome. x)
I do think Yuna's voice is one of the worst things to happen to FF as a whole though; there's something not right about it, she sounds like she doesn't understand the language instead of soft and frail or whatever, worst is it doesn't transfer well to X-2.

I'm almost done with season 1 of Darker Than Black. It's kind of confusing and the story is all over the place, but it gets brownie points from me for having a Chinese main character who's a badass normal and badass abnormal rolled in one, and isn't treated as just the comic-relief guy.

I have a new favorite anime character now.

I do a tip of the hat to the Japanese doing good Chinese characters.... and non-Japanese (ie; Euro-mericans) that aren't blue eyed and blond.  Still have yet to find the latter.

Watched the first episode of ...um, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko (which literally translated to the fun title: “Electric Wave Woman and Youthful Man”).  Whats with making lead guys in harems look like absolute losers?  He's okay, he's got a dick haircut, but seems personable enough.  Truthfully, I only started watching this because of the appealing and interesting opening theme and animation.  Gorgeous animation, but the "aunt" character is one of the worst things to happen to anime all year, who's like a 39-year-old 8-year-old.  Weird story, hopefully it goes somewhere because meh. 

All this hubbub about Darker than Black makes me hope its something a bit more on the thought provoking side.

So I've been working on one of my two pen and paper RPGs recently... It was supposed to be Persona in America (done the right way (I'm looking at you, Revelations: Persona)), but all the Persona mechanics just didn't seem to transfer well enough, so I decided to change it to something more like Shin Megami Tensei if...

I feel wrong for doing that. Should I?

Not too sure what to say without the context of this here.  What is a paper-pen RPG?

I just took my Matrix Blue Pill that makes me wake up like nothing ever happened.  Huge headache all day... Took my pill, and essentially, I'll see you all later.

I wonder if they'd remake FF6 the way they did 1-4.  Fucking hell, they need to get on FF's 5 and 6 already.  How the fuck did they justify this whole FF4 remakes bonanza and not even consider the next two?  Something better be sizzling...!!

((insert Yoda's Hulk smiley here))

Visual novels: Saya no Uta is pretty goddamn morbid.  ...no seriously, it's a plot point to simply "be" like that.

Nier (not PSP... but not many "dark" PSP titles... because otherwise, aside from a few minor additions, and old, Breath of Fire V and the SMTs was the last that I can really say stuck to memory)

I don't really think LoM is very fun to play but in terms of story/setting/characters it is maybe my favorite Square thing. Shame about the gameplay though.


I liked it, but I thought the battles could use some heavy duty mechanics tweaking.  It feels difficult to just attack sometimes, clunky too.  If there was any way it could have been as fluid as Castle Crashers (very similar battle style), then I'd have loved it way more.

I don't either - but waaay better has come from Nintendo.  If the new Res Evil game looks as good as it does, why does this one look way worse than Twilight Princess?  But again -- I'd rather see it in action before I'm more absolute with my opinion.

Looking at these comparison shots of Ocarina, I would say that the graphics were improved considerably from the N64 version.

All things considered, especially with how other games look, this still looks kinda poopy.  I'm not changing my mind, and screw nostalgia (thats a bullshit reason for a "remake"), but I would look to see it more in motion; even HD games look kinda crappy as screenshots, seeing it in motion is always best.

Best rarely-in-RPGs feature thus far: efficient elevator!  Love it.

Cute hot spring scene... JRPGs just have to have 'em, huh?

You win a million points for posting a Look Around You video, Yoda.  I love them all.

The "Thanks, ants. Thants" became a sort of running-gag for a while at my brothers house.  They said, "Stanks" for me...

People have mistakenly guessed me for being 1/2 Asian..which is funny because I'm basically the whitest person ever. I took it as a compliment.


I kind of sport some sleepy eyes sometimes maybe that's it.

Occasionally, you get a honky with dark skin, dark eyes and the like (countering the better known version of us and even Poles for Blue eyes and Blond).  A friend of mine looks unmistakeably Asian, despite being pure honk.  My theory: somewhere down the blood line there's probably some Hun or Mongol invasion and pillaging and conquer rape that took place to, uh, present those features in the individual.

PS: Look Around You is genius,

I love spy/espionage movies -- any recommendations?  

Just finished watching Spy Game with Brad Pitt and Rob Redford. I love this movie too, dunno why.
Also... This Movie = Redford One-Liners

They happen like... every 5th line.  
"If I'm walking into a shit storm, I gotta know which way the wind is headin'"
and in line with that and early on
"When did Noah build the ark? ...Before the storm".  Wise man, Mr. Redford.

In Like Flint



I'd rather watch Fran Drecher.
