This looks AWESOME!!!
Not sure how they were Phoenix being there - curious about that.  Strang to see people with tiny dotted eyes and plump noses amidst more "ideal" anime looking types (which are quite ironically, a tad more anatomically correct).
Awww... I wouldn't want them AGAINST each other though! =(

I've never trusted Kotaku or Sankaku Complex very much. They both tend to paint caricatures or only take extreme examples.

For the idol thing though...I guess if it's some sort of "rule" that they can't have a boyfriend, it's similar to following the rules of a sport. I don't really agree with it, but I suppose I understand.

Mmm - try to see the question in a broader sense then, especially in regards to other countries and nations.  Narrow to the demographic that DO take this seriously (consider how network execs ASK these girls to remain boyfriendless - clearly it IS a big deal in Japan, and doubtfully a small fraction and minority).

Thoughts??

I find it almost ironic with how it's handled in North America...
Furthermore, isn't it kind of ironic that girls need to "look" pure and innocent (or be "killed off" so to speak) by the same fans who probably jerk off to their image?
I think we've all fantasized about a married Hollywood starlette or thought them attractive, but certainly never "raged" at their hook ups.

But I wonder your thoughts on this, RPGfan!

It doesn't apply? Are you slow or can you just not take a joke?
it would be funny if it made sense within the context of my post, but it doesn't. Your passive aggessiveness does you no favors.

Anyway, the thing I dislike most is the change to characterization to fit anime conventions. Character designs I can get on board with, but the change to character personalities is boggling. Guy is a muscle brained, clumsy oaf; a big difference from the character who was insightful and could intelligently spar verbally with someone like Artea. Tia's jealous attitude is exaggerated to comical harem anime levels, whereas in the original it was nowhere near that bad. The only person who remained unchanged was Dekar, and he was one dimensional to start with. What I liked about the original was tha its characters felt sufficently human and real for a SNES game; this version feels like playing a generic anime cliche game - kind of like a poorly written Tales game. The fact that the took a step BACKWARDS in terms of character development boggles my mind.

That's because Japan makes shitty things lately - no fault of the characters they're given poor writers haha.
I prefer these designs much more, I'm sad to hear the characterization suffers though.

I have to agree - never thought I'd say this, but I do find turn-based combat too slow and stale.
Hell, look, FF13 tried to speed it up, instead we get 3-5 weakened attacks and an auto-battle to keep-up.

I like how this website doesn't so immediately "poo-poo" games, but bases them more individually and for whatever merit.  Reviews are honest (though when it comes to OST reviews, monsieur chief editor misses a lot of my favorite tracks [arbitrary complaint]) and cover a lot of ground.

RPGfan has without a doubt encouraged a few purchases of my own... but beyond that, I think the forum has changed me more than anything.  The people here are swell, and I love coming here for the actual discussion of games.  Some of RPGamer's forum was filled with a bunch of incest-bred retards, poor arguers, and riddled with fanboys.  At least here we debate before define.

Gorgeous backyard garden, Grim!!  Must be nice to come home that and and then follow it, probably literally, with a 'home sweet home'. =)
I'd kill for a nice backyard, I think it'll be the only way to counter my hate for bugs is a pretty place for them. ;P
Love your pooch too,  I want him.  Wanna switch pooches?

Rented The Book of Eli from Redbox and liked it so much I bought it the next day.  There were definitely a bunch of times where I thought "this is totally Fallout: The Movie."

Code:
I thought the "Denzel Washington = Daredevil" thing of the ending was a little weird, but at least the details I could remember from throughout the movie were consistent with it.  Also, I think the idea was that he was truly led by God, even in battle.  Don't know - I guess that even though I'm not a churchy guy these days, I still liked the way he lived his faith, as opposed to Gary Oldman's character, trying to use faith as a weapon.

I think you have to take it for what it is - the Church but is a simple matter of fact, and faith and the bible played a major role in early history.  Faith to people in a hopeless time, I don't care who you are, you'd likely listen (stretch this to other scenarios).  Besides, I think it was well countered.
I LOVED how the Bible was perceived in three different, if not historically accurate ways:
-as a tool of faith
-as a tool to rule
-as a tool of knowledge/meditation/wisdom.

I'm not trying to advocate Christianity - but (and in my opinion, like many religions) they have words of good value, morals, and some wisdom (be it fiction or not).

Watched Caddyshack - this movie is fucken great.  Aged really well for the most part, and I think Chevy Chase's character cannot be outmatched.

Yeah, how dare they add modern improvements to an old-style game? Those fucking idiots.

Hehe

If you are referring to the combat, turn-based is still very viable. To assume it is outdated just because it has been around a long time is, well, ignorant.

I prefer the new Maxim.  It may be pretentious, but I hated the 80's warrior look he had before.  Dekar's change was surprising, but I kinda grew to like it, seems somewhat appropraite.  Selene's, nothing drastically changed, but she's looking fine.  I HATED Tia's old design, the porcelain doll was really ugly, definitely trying too had for her 80's man (Max), I actually think her new design is cute, much more honest and relate-able at the very least than a pink dress and curls.

I heard the game is clunky, but I'm curious...Lufia II was awesome...and fucken long.
