You guys mentioned a Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus thing?
Titan Souls

edit: On the treehouse localization thing, I think most people upset about it are mad particularly about the conversation that was changed to be just "....." between two characters; making it exclusively about "anime boobs" (face petting? pretty damn tame, imo) is a liiiittle immature.

Another anime with an awful ending was Chaos;head (or really, it was more like it had an awful second half). It started with a murder mystery and an unreliable narrator protagonist, and by the half way point, it tried to solve its own mystery with the most Technobabble, Tenchi Solution, Male Power Fantasy explanation possible.

I was thinking this right before I read that you brought this up, though I liked a few moments in the last few episodes, namely revealing the identities of Grim and Shogun.
I guess an example of the reverse being true (anime that starts out shitty and the second half is really good) would be Shuffle.

Code Geass was really awesome and unpredictable, until the last two or three episodes and it felt way too obvious that they were building up to it.
Rolo's death scene though, that was fantastic.

The Dark Knight was a good movie overall and the boat scene was IMO the best/most memorable part by far, though I thought it was towards the end of the second act, but I haven't seen it in a long time and I have trouble motivating myself to watch it again.

My personal least favorite ending off the top of my head is Return of the King the movie, but at the time (and even now) I generally don't watch movies over 3 hours in one sitting so that ending dragged.

Final Fantasy X (Great ending) - Who ever has played it, which I am sure most of us on here has everyone knows why. Its a little sad what happens to Tidus but overall great ending.

Man.... so good.  No ending of anything has ever emotionally destroyed me like that.

Grave of the Fireflies demands your attention.
And also Now and Then Here and There.

SNES and PS4's controllers are probably my favorites.
The buttons (particularly the shoulder buttons) on the wii's classic controller feel cheaply made, and overall it feels a little cheaply made, plus the motion controls in a game like Skyward Sword (albeit only played a kiosk demo) were balls to the wall unplayable.

Another one that deserves mention is this thing for its ergonomic design and it's cheap but it still feels well made.

Nier: Heart of Darkness made by Yoko Taro!

IIRC the chlorination syndrome was caused by maso/magic dispersed after the giant died.

Also try playing Spec Ops the Line for a similar mindfuck.

(I hate that if someone is scantily clad, particularly females and not males, then automatically it's because she's eye candy, because it doesn't at all play into her personality of being in control and a badass. Bikini armor is a common point of criticism, because it's sexy, but does that not make the character seem all the more brave for fighting with such little protection?)

Is there a chance you could link to the exact articles in news stories instead of just listing a site like gematsu as a source?
For example on this story this could link this as the source.

So uh, necro-ing this thread because I just saw the english page for this and holy shit it was really neat, though it's probably nothing new in terms of web design it came across as pre'y fuckin' cool.
also an old ass article

Was someone breathing really heavily around 33 to 34 minutes in?

I don't feel like looking to see if it was posted already, but you guys probably saw this go down already, well I just read a really insightful comment on that video.

"You should only stick with your own culture and people. When you start mixing races and culture it's bad for everyone."

Who said it?
1)my racist grandpa
2)a progressive liberal

I agree pretty much with this guy's points, but I think it's hilarious that he looks/sounds like a little Anthony Anderson and his channel is called the church of fuck you.

Calling it now, Nier is probably gonna be on steam pretty soon.
edit: Kaine's outfit (imo) fits her personality, because in Nier Replicant she's supposedly a little flirty with the protag. Plus she doesn't need armor or to be fully clothed to be badass, in fact I'd argue it makes her more so. For that matter, nier himself being *nier*ly topless looks badass too. I also have really fond memories of fishing in this game btw. :c
13  Site Related & More / RPGFan: Site / Re: Voice actor interviews - who would you want to see interviewed? on: March 24, 2016, 05:05:16 AM
Keifer Sutherland, because trolling the people that wanted David Hayter

They probably don't voice much anymore (for rpg's at least, I guess) but it would be pretty cool to get interviews from any of the voice people in this game.

Late reply, my bad :c

Curious what you mean in the second to last para.
I kinda agree with the last bit, especially with respect to all that "MGTOW" bullshit which is seems to be dying (fortunately).

Then kinda tying into what both of you get into, I'm totally a feminist, but I'm not one of those stupid tumblrina "women>men" fools who "drinks male tears" or whatever the shit as much as I'm sure that [clearly mysoginistic] MGTOW movement is a bad representative of "genuine MRA issues" (when they're not taking giant shits on Anita Sarkeesian ---- again, and actually try to fight for men's quality of life....like the good feminists are)... but you know, the Internet has trouble with this, there's no shades of grey and everything comes up black and white.   Then you kinda see how stupid it is that they all can't get along and it leads to a whole bunch of dumb shit and spilt ink on message forums 'round the globe and the added irony when they both don't see how both can be very sensitive to whatever issue but still love throwing the word "overreacting" at each other without the smallest sense of introspection.

That guy was contradicting himself a teeny bit by claiming "Zeta males" aim to break out of the hierarchy but then he puts them (as an ideal) at the top of the hierarchy.
Also he sounds like he thinks women in general consciously manipulate men, sure maybe some but only a minority, though a case could be made for unconscious manipulation because of cultural/societal standards.

I agree with Skeptic (he's Canadian too!) on MGTOW: they raise pretty sound/valid/not-sexist points, and some others call themselves MGTOW but don't really get it, and happen to be actually sexist.

My biggest problems with feminism are (among feminists I've talked to about this stuff) ----
"rape culture!"- fear mongering, desensitizing, trivializing, IMO it's lessened the impact of the word rape.
double standards and female privilege- I'm probably echoing your statement about "the good feminists" to try to help men, but all the focus seems to be on infantilizing women and portraying them as constant victims, also conveniently ignoring female privileges and double standards that in some cases hurt men and women
"feminism is about equality. you don't want to be against equality do you?"- the with us or against us attitude

In fact, it could be argued that (in terms of gender, race is another story) we have so many double standards that both sides are equal in a really fucked up way.

Wil Wheaton.

His standup is decent, but he always comes across as a smug dickface with his delivery, plus his tweet that calling someone an "SJW" isn't an insult is pretty inaccurate seeing as every time I've called someone that they get pissy he called Anita Sarkeesian a hero and misrepresented notyourshield.
