*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

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.

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.

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.

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?
981  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.

Made it partyway through Ch. 6 today. I hate Axel. Hated him in 2, hated him in cameo in 3, hate him now. I fail to see how this "thing" survived as a concept; let alone as such a popular "character" as he seems to be.
983  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atlus Opens a New Teaser Site (Persona 4 related?) on: September 15, 2011, 01:06:51 AM
Silly question/observation: For all the side by side comparisons that people have been doing with Mary to the P3 Velvet Room companions; has anyone else noticed a subtle but perhaps very important difference?

Theodore's V marker is silver; Mary's is Golden.

Persona 4: The Golden...new character with a very prominent golden icon worn only by someone else with a connection to the velvet room...

Might be looking too deep into it but my hunches tell me this is intentionally overt for some reason.

Maybe it's been too long but even though I generally dislike X I remember Blitzball being rather fun. Granted I didn't play it long enough for Wakka's weapon but the team building aspect and manually controlling the players was a nice distraction. About the only major flaw was the Jecht Shots pretty much broke the game balance and it was about the only way to win the story-required game.

Heck my liking for Blitzball is one of the major contributing factors for why I think X-2 is a steaming pile; they turned Blitzball into a "hands-off" affair. ~.~ It's probably the second greatest example of a Japanese company missing the point of what made something fun and playable bested only by Sonic the Hedgehog's entire production history.

If it's an HD remake and follows the trends of current PS2 HD remakes it'll be DD only; see Resi 4 for the most recent example.
986  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy X HD confirmed for PSVita and PS3 on: September 14, 2011, 01:12:52 AM
Just what we wanted. "Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!" in High Definition! >.>

Joking aside; why "X" I wonder. Of all the FFs fans have been calling for a graphically updated remake I'd rank probably 7 and 6 at the top of that list with X trailing somewhere down there with 9 (mostly because the cartoony style still holds up pretty well even with PSOne era graphics) and X-2 because...it's X-2.
987  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 12, 2011, 11:50:41 PM
That one was a rather...odd choice. Kinda reminded me of the same "voice does not match the face" situation Disgaea 3 had with the leader of the PTA's VA.
988  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 12, 2011, 02:40:50 AM
I'll have to let you know what I think when I get that far (unless you meant the information bureau). I just started Chapter 6 but am planning on some serious level grinding on 5-2 now that I have Vulcanus.

On a side note: Please tell me I'm not the only one here who has created a succubus named
. XD
989  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 12, 2011, 01:12:09 AM
The problem is Brianne's and not the directors or anything; at least to me personally. Her voice has...more often struck out with me than hit home. About the only role of hers that doesn't agitate me is Jim Hawking from OS but that's probably because it was my first experience with it. Since then every role I've heard her do she pretty much clones that voice. Jr. from Xenosaga got on my nerves, Emizel's...sorta still on my nerves; he's getting better due to finally taking a back seat, and probably her worst crime was Pamela from MK 1...that voice choice still gives me nightmares.

Only at the end Chapter 3 so far. I died again fighting
but beat her on what is now my third cycle. Not really liking the new difficulty curve at all. It's slowing down the progress to about one new chapter a day. :-/ On the plus side I really love the Online Downloadable Maps feature; mostly because there are awesome designers who basically put every monster in the game on a single map at level 1; this way you can unlock the base form for any monster you want without having to wait until more than half the story is over to get the critter you want to start raising.

Mechanics aside; I'm kinda torn on where I would rate this Disgaea so far. It's better than 1 & 2, but 3 gave me more laughs. Conversely 3 gave me more facepalms and groans as well; and 4 has become much more tolerable now that Valvatorez doesn't yap about sardines every single map anymore. Fenrich is quite the humorous character; I was about to write him off as a Geoffery clone but he's proven to have a bit more of his own thing going on now. Fuka so far is...meh. But DESCO is unexpectedly adorable. Although from what little of the story I have this horrid hunch that (just in case)
Fuka and DESCO were like Magical Girl and rival Enemy respectively somehow.
Not sure how I'll react if that's really the case. Really looking forward to seeing Vulcanus(?) next chapter and learning how I feel about that character. Funny how so far Vulcanus(?) and Vulcanus seem to be having the same agenda with different emotions behind it. (Vulcanus went behind the Seraphs back out of spite for demons where Vulcanus(?) seems to be doing the exact same thing to Archangel Flonne more out of reverence.)

And btw...Emizel can go die in a fire. Self centered, hoodie wearing, "gansta" talkin' brat cliche...voiced by Brianne Siddall? Even Kefka can't produce enough "hates" to bury that character. (Brianne Siddal's a good VA and all but that voice with that character type pushes my irritation button.)
