Everyone has a preference...but XII was just so poorly done in terms of story and characters. Even the music was less satisfying than most other FF titles. I give the gambit system praise every time, but fuck XII overall.

Not unless he was an extra in the background or something.
I had read he was going to play a russian colonel in the movie....guess that was a mistake.

Finally saw Chronicle. Man, that was a good movie. It felt very....real I think is the word to use here, like it could have happened. The whole method of filming just sold the movie well. I really suggest checking it out at least once.

Also watched Battleship....it sucked. Really sorry Liam Neeson has his name attached to it, he's above films like that. The whole premise was cool, and visuals were top notch...but the peg missles, the "battleship grid" scene, and the silliness of the cast...if this were the real navy, I'd be scared off my ass for what happens in an actual battle.

Maybe it's because of the villians, but 1 and 3 were definitely my favorites. Alan Rickman and Jeremy Irons were great bad guys, although they were terrible germans in hindsight. I liked 2 because of the action, it was great. 4 was mediocre, and the young guy in it was one of the hackers, not his son. I do have one requested mini-spoiler to ask for. Is it true Patrick Stewart's in it?

I can also attest to years of playing FFVI, and never having caught one of those game breaking bugs, though my first time having played ffvi was via rental at blockbuster video. I actually tried playing one of the saved files, which was at hidon's rock, and the airship was glitched and couldn't be boarded...not my fault.

Amazing...10/10

I'm a whore for nostalgia, and I've been a die hard fan since I was old enough to understand it. Granted, 4 wasn't great, but the first 3 were awesome. This is more than enough to get me to see 5.

Saw Die Hard 5.

It was Die Hard.
Cursed overseas early release BS. I'm dying to see this.

Still sick, this cold is driving me nuts. I'm coughing like 6 times a minute, which just makes everything annoying. Can't even play video games well, I keep dropping the controls  to cough.

This SUCKS.

So I haven't been back to this game in a week and change, and I haven't really missed it all that much. It was a fun run, but looking back, I feel I had to take advantage of too many elements in the game to get by. I seriously overleveled trying to get everything, which made every fight simplistic. Most of the puzzles weren't that hard (I admit the one puzzle in the vault of tears was....annoying), and boss fights were simply a test of patience, opting to defend more often instead of gunning for that extra hit or spell. I enjoyed the silly humor of the fairy thing, but even as I type this, I realize I can't remember its name. Generally a good sign of a game's lack of staying power. Maybe it's because I rushed through it, but it's lost that appeal to me now.

Doubt I'm even gonna finish the post game honestly.

Quick Edit:DRIPPY! Fuck, can't believe I forgot it.

Well, I do have the benefit of not watching it every week, as well as not watching any of seasons 2-4, so it's pretty fresh.

I have low standards for humor, pardon me for enjoying burp and fart jokes
1406  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: February 09, 2013, 05:08:47 PM
I watch too many prime time comedies. 1600 Penn and Guys with Kids are both funny, Big Bang Theory is hilarious, and How I met your Mother is so awesome. Alao, I started watching Incredible Crew on cartoon network...it's a shame the cast isn't 5 years older, it'd be on par with Saturday Night Live.
1407  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So Final Fantasy XII.... on: February 09, 2013, 05:05:49 PM
I wanna defend my point, but it gets too wordy and I am fighting a cold.

So in conclusion, Xenoblade was 40% great and 60% fetch quests, and FFXII was 10% gambit system and 90% regret.
1408  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So Final Fantasy XII.... on: February 09, 2013, 12:25:14 PM
It's just an attempt to validate buying that piece of shit called the Wii. If Xenoblade had been on PS3 or xbob, or even pc, it would have been AT BEST a mediocre title. For some reason, when you have a mediocre game on the Wii, it becomes amazing. I bet if xenoblade were a DS title it would have been labled the best rpg ever.

If it makes you feel better, I have one friend on facebook and only use it to find people I haven't seen in years...

I hate people.

Thoughts:

1) If you hate people, why find them?

or

2) You suck at finding people and have only found one

or

3) You only have ever known one person
Actually, 1 is pretty accurate. People from my past were terrible to me...I just use it to glance and see what they're like now. I also use it as a safety for when I haven't spoken to someone in a real lomg time, like if they lost their phone or their pc broke or xbox fried...leave a facebook message to get in contact with em basically.


In other news, I'm sick again, this time it's just a cold. Picked a good week for it thoigh, seeing as we just got nailed here in new york with a foot of snow. Basically gonna sleep this shit off and get ready for next week. Funny story, the owner of the gym I go to has hired my father and I to add some sonos connect units to the gym and fix the sound system a bit. Next week, the weight room gets to listen to more fitting music instead of upbeat dance crap...I'm so excited!

Final Fantasy X and XII are two of my favorites in the whole series lol. The constant complaints about Final Fantasy after IX gets old.
It is tiring to hear about how XII is so terrible...shame it's so true though.
