Bah, that was a bit of a kneejerk on my part. Blame the admins for not giving us a delete post button for that having survived overnight. XP I'll elaborate for clarification.

Spoilers for "The God Complex"

Code:
The Doctor basically sends Rory and Amy home for good because basically he's afraid of a repeat of what's happened to all of RTD's Doctor companions.

Admittedly, this makes sense. However I still feel (albeit not a strongly now) that the execution of this was done quite poorly.

It felt like a "Spiderman 3" moment. Just out of no where the Doctor is all "Zomg! I know everyone I come into contact with will die a horrible fate. Off you go! ;_; "

I exaggerate a bit, but it really does have that jarring and rushed feel that makes you go "Well...that was highly out of character."

More relevant to the forums it felt like an "Edge Maverick" moment. Hence the initial comparison to "emoing"; as he acted more like a JRPG Protagonist than the Doctor.

Due to a wonky sleep schedule I still haven't beaten this thing yet. ~.~ Only on
Code:
Chapter 8. Heh, never thought I'd have to spoiler code a chapter # but since they did the whole Final Episode fake out...

In the meantime I'm working on a third reincarnation cycle for the hell of it. Think for the first time every I'm going to abandon the Prinny in favor of the plant monster; simply because one of the Magichange attacks is the infamous Seki-ha Love Love Tenkyoken. Anyone around here post-gaming it yet? How's the post-game stuff stand up to previous titles?

I saw. For some reason it didn't show up until about 10 minutes or so after I posted. Something's goofy with my net's updating speed today. XP

Didn't see an update to the news story here nor a topic so...figured I might as well save some people some time and be the bearer of bad news m'self. Check the story's update; not so much the title itself.

Amusing Side Note: Funny how they got the right roman numeral in the article but somehow transposed it for the URL link.

Second Edit: And just to clarify; there has been an additional post by the Playstation Twitter assuring people that the games "are" coming to PSN; just not today.

Hmm...four games of interest. One I know will never make it stateside and the other I'm considering passing on just by virtue of the fact that the creator seems to have an H-game character design obsession. Not sure if two games will be enough to justify picking it up at launch. Might just snag the D3 port and tuck it away until the inevitable price drop.

Thirding the "You're screwed" sentiment. If you want an "epic" JRPG this gen then hit the PSN for the PSOne classics. XD

The only JRPGs I have in my collection so far this gen are Disgaea 3, 4, and Neptunia. Although honestly...I'd seriously recommend giving Fallout New Vegas a shot; this coming from someone typically hyper-critical of WRPGs. The humor and scale of the world kinda remind me of what ye olden JRPG tried to emulate (sort of like FF6) only this world you actually "can" explore every nook and cranny. Kinda disliked it at first but it really grew on me; especially after dealing with nonsense like AT3, Record of Ag. War, and Star Ocean. The only downside is just a little "too" much of the FPS element.

If you don't want to venture into WRPG territory I'd say hold out and see if FFXIII-2 or Neptunia 2 are any good (and in the case of the second not littered with Agarest levels of fanservice).

Huh, maybe just me then. I was almost certain that dollification qualified up there with "diapering" as one of those weird moe aspect that's been floating around the convention art circuit lately. Regardless I still stand by my opinion that those are some damn creepy faces. ~.~
968  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, Thread of people Dancing Mad on: September 18, 2011, 05:27:30 AM
...creepy and uncanny. Seeing that game's design pretty much seems to drive home the point of that 1Up article about what's wrong with the J-market currently.
969  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who 2011 Series on: September 18, 2011, 02:37:31 AM
*golf clap* Bravo Moffat. And here I was about to agree you were better than RTD. You've just given the Doctor a literal equivalent to the Spiderman 3 black-suit Peter Parker dance. Way to paste your character as an emo git for the rest of the season. XP

*sigh* That article reminds me why I stopped reading at Cracked. Any point the author might make is pretty much immediately lost within the first section when you realize he has absolutely no idea about the very subject he's trying to speak about. I read the whole thing; only purpose it served is one more addition to the pile of proof for why some people shouldn't write certain articles. XP
971  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: September 17, 2011, 04:12:02 AM
Did you enjoyed XIII? -> A little bit/No -> Then don't buy the sequel(s)!

Did you enjoyed XIII -> Yes -> Don't you have self respect?

The only problem with that is normal sequel logic doesn't apply to the Final Fantasy universe. Every game, for better or worse, always changes something drastically from the prior one; even with direct sequels like FFX and X-2.
972  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: September 16, 2011, 05:35:23 PM
Argh...now that I've read a bit on the game I'm debating whether to get it or not. My expectations of SE are pretty much zeroed out but when they use terms like "paradox" and "time contradiction" it strikes me right in the weak point of the attention center for full effect... Plus it helps that they're not Capcom who I avoid out of sheer malice now whenever possible. Going to have to at least keep it on my radar for now.
973  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: September 16, 2011, 05:57:52 AM
At least Serah looks hot though (yes as far as character designs go that's all I really care about)

WHAT???!!!!! She looks like an anorexic 11-yeara-old! How the HELL is that HOT? Okay, so her face is pretty and she's got a fair chest. But everything below that is withered and shrunk, her arms too.

Seriously, Japanese men are sick fucks.

No, that looks like an anorexic 11 year old. Serah looks like a lanky teenager.

Edit: Wrong Reyvatiel; fixed it. I was considering linking to "older" Cocona too when I realized that pretty much almost any female Reyvatiel except maybe Aurica and Cloche fit that description in some form.
974  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atlus Opens a New Teaser Site (Persona 4 related?) on: September 16, 2011, 02:52:26 AM
Interesting; I just took a closer look at Mary and it seems her design has some purpose behind.

In addition to her hat's clip being an exact replica of Theodore's (only golden) you'll notice the "clip" holding her bag shut is an exact replica of the ornaments that make up the front of Elizabeth's dress; only golden as well.

This makes me wonder about her belt clip; the heart with a jagged division line and two winger serpents on each side. Is that from anything Atlus related?
975  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atlus Opens a New Teaser Site (Persona 4 related?) on: September 15, 2011, 10:52:34 AM
I'd say that's almost a foregone conclusion considering Atlus's cameo/hinting habits. Heck Vincent was in the bar/club in P3P complaining of nightmares well before we even heard the faintest rumor of Catherine's existence.
