1  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Is brand loyalty "worth it?" on: April 16, 2015, 06:07:02 PM
I could give a shit about the series really, since many are published or developed by a number of different studios and studio quality can vary so widely.

What is the difference between could giving a shit and not giving a shit?
If you couldn't give a shit, you literally care so little you couldn't be bothered at all. If you could give a shit, your care level is at almost zero, but there is just enough concern to give the smallest notable value, i.e. a shit.

I think, when said in this particular context, what "I could give a shit" ends up being is just a contraction of "I could give a shit about the series, but I don't" with the rest just being colloquially implied. 


Frankly, sir, who gives a shit?

Is it clear how much of Human Revolution this will connect with?
By the look and sound of it, it appears to feed right off of one of the multiple endings of human revolutions.

I think they said that it's not following any of the ends.
Well, it's safe to say that at the very least,

Code:
kill himself and take the conspiracy info to his grave

I did read up a bit on what is known, and there is no statement about what happened between the 2 years. I'd like to think, however, that

Code:
Based on the larger amount of augmentations and the sudden loss of control in them, Jensen used the illuminati's story as the ending to keep augmentation going but force stricter regulations

In any case I am stoked.

I'm just stating that I don't dislike anime here, but pinky mcstrangeface is just beyond off-putting. I'll play the game assuming it doesn't completely deviate from the usual Star Ocean path, but I have no love for the designs in general, ESPECIALLY hers.

No disrespect, b.

Wow. That Flash episode Tuesday night, "Out of Time." Absolutely crazy. Usually in most 23 episode-season run series the writers stretch out plotlines over the season. I felt like that episode had major implications for the future of the show. Without spoiling too much for RPGfans who haven't seen the show or particularly the episode aired this week we'll just say time travel will play a major role in future episodes to come. The tricky thing is how will the writers write/re-write the timeline to come without confusing and frustrating fans of the show and comic with having to keep track of timelines. Also, with the recently announced The Flash/Arrow spinoff... I wonder if they'll try to resolve plotlines there. Although... who knows when they'll film it and release the pilot episode.

This has become one of my favorite shows. It is amazing. I am super excited to see Captain Cold in the new show since he one of the characters spinning off. He is played amazingly well in this iteration. A bad guy with an interesting set of values and a code. Will he be an unlikely hero in the new show as he is in the comics at times, or will they continue to make him a villain?


Also something I am curious about-

Code:
Will Caitlin become Killer Frost at some point since Caitlin Snow is one of the people that has been Killer Frost through the years in the comics?
Answer to the code...Yes according to interviews, and as soon as the end of this season we may see it develop.

No Klutz, no one is holding a gun to my head to play the game. However, having played all but 1 of the previous games and much like everyone else here, I have put my money forward to play a game series I enjoyed. It gives me every right in the world to complain about a direction the artists took in character designs. Much the same as some hillbilly telling me if I don't like how the government runs the country I can get out, I put a part of my life into the country and the company, if you don't care for my complaints, you can kindly ignore me as I am fully entitled to complain about either.

Can someone please reassure me that those faces are just not the final designs...please...I really don't wanna spend 40-60 hours looking at the personified horror of sun baby from teletubbies everytime I see that pink haired chick while playing. Please let them be place(face?)holders for real designs.

Anime looks great because it's anime. What's happening in video games isn't really anime, so the designs start looking exactly like I said, someone cosplaying a bad anime character irl including the terrible facial features. If you wanted anime in a video game, why not just make it more anime like and less realistic?

Oh god delete the photo Hathen, it's making me physically ill.

Seriously, I enjoy jrpg archetypical heroes as much as one with my personal likes can, but this is painful.

I truly despise the current designs. It looks like anime threw up on a cosplay convention. They look disturbingly like real people playing as animu characters, it's actually putting me off.

Just watched that skit from Seth Myers' show about Jon Snow at his dinner party. I feel pretty caught up on the whole of game of thrones now.

Video: Mute City in Mario Kart 8 Just Got Crazy Courtesy of 200cc Racing

Omg... this makes me want a new F-Zero game. I loved playing F-Zero on the SNES growing up. Digging the new speed of Mario Kart at 200cc looks super fast.
No mute city music, no mute city. Whopping thumbs down.

Wouldn't it be glorious if it's a full on reboot of star ocean 1? I STILL haven't played the first, really should at this point.

I'm kinda hoping that Tomara's joke suggestion has merit and this is in fact a Lunar reference...

SE giving Lunar a FF style facelift...I could be swayed, I really could.

Still, Star Ocean seems very probable, and would be welcome enough.
