I've checked out some stuff from Naruto out of curiosity sporadically, and before that at best my experience with it was a few couple of episodes of the anime and got until volume 4 or so with the manga.

Is bizarre seeing how long this series is considering how at one point you can get the impression that Naruto lacked something that most massively popular "shonen" series have going for them, but I never could figure out what exactly is. A few moments after the fight against Zabuza and Haku is over however, the series deflates its momentum in such a massive way that is jarring. Sure, the series has it moments after that, but the way how it seems to lack a certain kind of energy that it had before along with feeling forced in such an awkward manner is very strange...

When an ending for Naruto comes, is as awkward and strange as when the series lost its momentum. Who knows if anybody thinks the same but ideally Naruto should have ended on a strong note with a completely different ending being open-ended and without Dragon Ball Z Naruto Shippuden happening, or alternatively, not being dragged as slowly as it did.

Also, among certain impressions with Boruto I've seen some say that there is a preachy message behind the movie that ends up being contradicted and nullified by the end of it. Either way, is hard to tell how should one feel with a series like this that it missed the mark even before it truly got things going.

@Dincrest: Yeah, "Field Demo 01" is really good. And is crazy to think how he's the same composer for Dark Souls.

[Interview] Guillermo del Toro on 'Crimson Peak' -- Bloody Disgusting!

Do you think if films like Deadpool are commercially successful, with its Hellboy-esq quirks, could pave a way for studios softening to the idea of Hellboy 3?
I tell you, I've been at it for 20 years or more and cannot figure out how studios think. It's totally random what can happen.

You cannot strategize for randomness."


So far your career has been quite varied with some work in video games. Although Silent Hills didn't work out, what was the experience like?

"It was curious.

We had a great experience and had great story sessions with hundreds upon hundreds of designs. Some of the stuff that we were designing for Silent Hills I've seen in games that came after, like The Last of Us, which makes me think we were not wrong, we were going in the right direction.

The thing with Kojima and Silent Hills is that I thought we would do a really remarkable game and really go for the jugular.

We were hoping to actually create some sort of panic with some of the devices we were talking about and it is really a shame that it's not happening. When you ask about how things operate, that makes no fucking sense at all that that game is not happening.

Makes no fucking sense at all. That's the randomness that I was talking about."

@ZeronHitaro: Ann's looks follows with the aesthetic and thematic that part of P5 is about, so I've never seen any of that as a problem of any kind in all of my sporadic interest with Persona.

Ann however has the dire misfortune of wearing hers on her...well...everything. XD So her battle to prove herself as a character is now exponentially harder.

Persona sure would be better if it was politically correct and progressive if BioWare were in charge of the stories and characters.

Why do I keep bothering to expect anything out of these clowns (especially when you have stuff like SMTIV's "Female Protagonist? We can't do that! That would break with tradition.", and anything to do with Performa Emblem)?

Atlus: #FE is a spin-off, it doesn't count into the main series tradition. Stay salty bro. :3


To be fair, the moment you saw they were putting the only human female cast member in a barftastic latex red 'cat'suit the writing was clearly on the wall anything related to her was going to be pure rubbish. Persona included.

If anything that's rubbish here to be honest is the delay. All of this attention P4 got is frustrating to a certain degree.

@pseudonym: More than whatever priorities the player might have, the issue with a few of X's side-quests is how uneven the design/structure is when the main journey in X is, for the most part, as solid as it is.

Upon looking again, yeah I'd say he's more Shuyin (FFX-2) on steroids.

Not even their color palettes are similar mate.

The blonde guy looks like Tidus on steroids.

He looks nothing like Tidus. If anything he resembles someone I expect to see from the SaGa series.

I pity the fool who puts time into FFX's minigames. Tidus getting Blitzbombed in X-2.5 though... 10/10 moment.

gg Nojima.

"We were originally planning on doing two sets of DLC," Masaaki Yamagiwa, Sony Japan's producer for Bloodborne, told Eurogamer at Tokyo Game Show. "It was decided that with one set, we'd be able to do more with it, and have more volume for players to play with. As of right now, we have no plans for any more DLC." -- Eurogamer

Judging by the TGS trailer, yep. Wikipedia also lists him as the composer, though they don't source it.

Huh. I would have expected they mixed things up a bit for variety with one or two new composers.

Not what I said! :)

I forgot to add that I was being facetious there. My bad.

Is Sakuraba still the main composer?

Apparently you're having some trouble with truth yourself- still having some issues with that tricky reading comprehension stuff I see. Somehow I'm not surprised you managed to miss the point that it's not about whether or not you're right that some people get assblasted about fanservice characters, but that you don't come off as being any better by getting personal whenever people talk about things in a way you don't like. Part of me wants to think you actually know better but you just pretend otherwise so you have excuse to act the way you do, but I guess that's actually worse.

So I was right. Is how it came across that's the issue if you get like this. I get how you imply that out the post, but I just posted that without any malice or superiority. I don't know how that's hard to believe.

Which makes Raiden even more of a failure because I vastly prefer the grizzled old manbeard in Metal Gear Solid.

Well, let me articulate this for a moment. Anything after MGS2 is one massive retcon that go against the original wishes of Kojima as the director, and the extend he goes with Raiden to make him more troubled and meaningful than Snake ever was up to that point in MGS2 (since he's busy being an idealized image aside of a philanthropist) says a lot. And I wouldn't call him a failure at all with how he eventually became popular either by the late appreciation MGS2 got or once Raiden went to become a cyborg ninja.

You realize people are allowed to have a different opinion?  Why do you have to take it personally when they don't?  Between not liking giant tittied women or not liking the FF13 series or whatever else...you just take it really, really personally.

Got it. I won't say anything ever again.
