It's not a Hollywood fact.  It's like you're saying I shouldn't be critical of a movie and should only look for what's good.

Also, I didn't think it was entertaining, at all.  And I certainly didn't go in expecting it to suck, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered.  Iron Man was entertaining.  Iron Man 2 was a shit show.  The movie was ultimately fan service, the problem is they didn't know which fans to service, Iron Man fans, or just action movie fans.  There was absolutely NO reason for Black Widow, or just S.H.E.I.L.D. in general, to be in the movie, but for some reason they want to hype up The Avengers in every related movie rather than just doing it actually inside The Avengers movie.  It was just a completely mindless movie.  I am curious as to what you found entertaining about it?

Haha no, no, I meant it's a Hollywood Fact that Hollywood will cash in on a part II if the Friday night box-office hit number 1.
Plus, it's all about money.  Producers will fund whatever can hit home to most people.  Iron Man has a looong history, and it's not easy to do a film for fans - you never know how many of them are, plus they're a fickle bunch to please.  What they did was try to hit in between.  An action movie about an awesome comic hero.

I thought it was entertaining at the very least - I love Rob Downy Jr, and prefer Cheadle to Terrance Howard anyways.

One thing I hate, that plagued both titles, was the impossible technology and how much I wanted it.

Haha, c'mon.  You're looking at a film that was approved when Iron Man 1 opened with a big box office that Friday night. :P
What did you expect? Thats a mind number, you sit and enjoy what you can haha

That's no excuse.  They may as well have not made the film then.  I expect a well made movie, which they really could have done because Iron Man was decent for the kind of movie they intended.  This one just did everything wrong.  It's like someone took a canvas, started spinning it, and then just started throwing shit at it and said, "There's your movie."  I enjoyed what I could, but it really wasn't much at all.  Really the only good scene in the movie was the fight where you get to REALLY see War Machine in action.  And even that was a bit of a let down.  This movie had the potential to be good but all they did was essentially pack in a million little things to set up The Avengers, which I have this crazy feeling is just not gonna be that great.

It's not an excuse, it's more of a Hollywood-fact. 
I loved the action myself - maybe the CG team got pissy and tired to do a lot of them, or the studio got greedy and didn't want to fund as much.  The movie is entertaining, like Spiderman 2... a similarily like S2, too much silly drama.

THat movie was character, not plot.
And Mickey Rourke must be the creepiest looking man alive.

Even the characters sucked.  They were flat the entire movie.  I just liked Mickey Rourke because he looked badass while doing badass things, but his character was a HORRIBLE villain.  In fact, I have no idea why the chose to put Whiplash in the movie and in such a terrible way.  I was sorely disappointed with this movie.  They might as well have just taken out every single word of speech and blown shit up for the whole movie.  It would've been much better.

I'm startin' to get the feeling that I'm missing out on a ton of cool games by not having a DS = \

...Meh.

I'm doin' one of those "the grass is greener" things aren't I? lol

I think so - some might disagree.  You're missing a few titles, but nothing I'd rather save for on a 3DS.
Personally, I'd wait it out.

You missed, max, 5 good RPG titles.

RPGs are at an all time low right now, IMO.  The market for the is pretty weak, and, if anything, the grass is greener on the non-RPG genre.  I'm generalizing of course, but still worth considering.

What do you guys think?  What's the unoffical RPG console, or is there one anymore?


DS/PSP. :/

I watched Iron Man 2.  I thought it was pretty terrible.  Mickey Rourke was awesome.  Seeing War Machine be...well War Machine was awesome.  But the movie was crap.

typical JRPG teenaged dick-weed who goes in head-first and seems to wield a blade better than anyone else on the planet.

Uh...have you actually played the game? Shulk is likely the most intelligent character in the party in Xenoblade. He has his moments of charging towards the enemies yelling and swinging his sword, but unless he's in mortal peril he tends to be quite quiet and thoughtful, and generally has things sussed out way better than some other members of your party. If there's explaining to be done in Xenoblade, you can bet Shulk will be doing it. Plus it probably isn't that hard to be handy in combat if you know what your enemies are going to do before they actually do it. The game doesn't really hesitate to paint Dunban as the more skilled of the two. Shulk is just your average science geek who happens to be able to see the future.

Not that Xenoblade doesn't have its share of anime archetypes. It totally does. I'm just not convinced Shulk is the kind of hero you're painting him as. He's not a typical fiery-tempered, bratty shounen manga hero. Not that I thought he was an especially brilliant character either, but he's a little bit more interesting than Generic JRPG Hero #597. And a lot more interesting than the muscle man you mentioned, who really is little more than a walking cliche.

My Japanese is still pretty shitty, so I missed the depth of the characters.  I still hate how heroes are still relatively perceived the same way.  Too many JRPG characters seem to stick to what they know and rarely develop or display some other emotion other than what you see in the first couple of hours.  The game was still a great experience (the character models left a bit to be desired, but the rest was amazing...for wii especially)

I gave into hype and watched K-On! episide 1....  





What's all the hype about now?
I think Yui should be in a special school, no one should be that dumb.

They're cute and all, and the animation is adorable, but oddly serious when it comes to instruments and music.

---------
EDIT:  I just watched the First Episode of Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt.  It's an absolute brilliant blend of cute meeting filth, east and west animation, and silly and awesome.

That vid kinda explains.  FYI, yes'm, our heroine is cover in poo-poo due to a poo-monster.  See it if you can!

I don't really recall either game have extraordinary sales; it's bad enough anime-styled games are becoming a harder sell over here given a history of shitty games (remember that one dry spell we had of serious JRPGs?  A lot of them were kinda make-your-own-adventure, all over the place settings, literally retarded characters, and a lack of continuity without much of a down-to-earth story...maybe I'm just citing Cross-Edge and Trinity Universe, Class of Heroes, and other "greatest shits")....

I'd hope this game to breaks the spell; but it seems only a few are really doing it right.
But even Xenoblade had the "wide" and "diverse" anime cast in it of typical JRPG teenaged dick-weed who goes in head-first and seems to wield a blade better than anyone else on the planet.  Followed by one nice girl, the other a hot one, and some muscle man.

Shit, sorry, didn't mean to jump on the "I haet JRPGz" bandwagon... I do like them...when they're not stale.  Maybe that's why it was so easy to look passed Nier's faults.  Sure the game had a few kinks in gameplay, but the world and cast sure as hell were fresh.
