we watched Billy Madison last night on dvd... I say that because it feels weird to see that movie on anything but a VHS.



O'DOYLE RULES.

Watched The Adjustment Bureau.  I can't say I liked it.  For one, it sucks imagination dry;
"Are you angels?"
"Myes, we've been called that" 
and this whole Chairman = God was typical and lame.  I think the movie really undermined the gravity and potential of the magic-hat idea, and they really skimmed the top of a larger concept in order to focus on a romance... anyways, ultimately the film falls flat.

Field of Dreams: good for such an odd concept.  I'm glad I finally watched it. :D

Jackass 3: I love these movies, I don't care what anyone says.  If it's not ballsy, it's stupid fun.  The plan? Watch all three movies, then hit up every roller coaster at Wonderland theme park... The theory: if you watch people do far stupider, reckless, and insane things, you will get pumped up enough to do a petty coaster!!!!

There is no way possible that you are a woman. No girl I know would willingly sit through ANY jackass movie, yet you enjoy them? AND you play video games. AND you're fairly attractive. You're a fembot, that's the only explanation.

Capcom is stupid for this, but idk if I blame them. Many a dickhead nowadays pirates everything, and several more just wait for a used copy to buy it instead. I mean, at least in a low end game store or ma and pop shop you'll find legitamate prices for used games, whereas lamestop charges like 5 bucks less for a new release. I bought my copy of MVC3 a week after release, got bored with it quick, and returned it to them for some bullshitty 24 bucks in store credit, meanwhile they flipped back on the wall for 55 bucks, which is more than 200% of what I received for it. As a gamer, I say go capcom, stick it to shitstop. As a poor gamer....yeah RE:Mercenaries may be a purchase not in my future plans.

A thought has occurred to me as well. What about gamefly users now? They use the service for a means at playing games they couldn't normally afford or invest time in to justify a purchase. This takes away the desire to play it by a great load now. Hmmm....
2688  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Freakin' Hard Boss!!! on: June 28, 2011, 10:00:38 AM
All I have to say is Legend of Legaia....the Delilias.

Yeah, generally past the halfway point most bosses could combo one character on your team for an instant kill, but something about the delilias always made the game seem unfair, forcing you to overlevel for that extra hp boost.

Hahaha, the Delilas Family boss fight was great in the sense that you have that gimmick where your party is separated fighting 3 1vs1 battles after going through three separate tunnels filled with obstacles, and then having to defeat Koru in 4 turns otherwise you'd be insta-killed.

Let me guess, it was Che Delilas that ticked you off, right? Mostly because Gala sucked giant amounts of butt for the majority of the game compared to Vahn and Noa and Che's  attacks hit the hardest.  It was also irritating that they teased you with a save point but wouldn't let you save until you beat the Delilases, meaning through the tunnels you go if you lose at any point. Eesh, I can  hear it now "GORGEOUS MEGATON PRESS! WHOAH....CLEAR!"


Dude,exactly. Once you beat Che, it was easier (ish), but he just slammed on you like a rotten step father. Once you figure out the pattern it's relatively doable, but if you don't stick to it, you're dead, no questions asked. Gala always was the shitty one in the party, lol.

I wonder if this means gay divorce is allowed as well? That'd be pretty comical, a gay married cuople fils for divorce, but the state doesn't recognize the legalized seperation, heh heh.

I actually saw GL Monday night.  Me and a buddy went to the only theater in town (and it's not a big town), and we were the only people at the showing. :)  Saw it in 3D, and they did a nice job on that for the most part, but I never feel like it makes an enormous difference in my viewing experience.

I thought Green Lantern was pretty good - certainly a fun super hero movie.  And if you were a fan at some point, you'll probably enjoy it.  You'll like seeing some of the "best known" of the Corps like Kilowog and Tomar Re.  It's got issues, and you might not want to think about some things too hard, but it's fun.

(Full disclosure: I actually own and wear a GL ring that I had custom made by a local jeweler.  So I think of myself as a fan of the character.  But that's a double-edged sword for a movie.  I could easily have been pissed off by it BECAUSE I'm a fan of the character, and I wasn't.)
I actually just got back from this an hour ago. I thought the movie was great really, though someone really needs to tell the movie industry that this 3-D shit they're advertising sucks alot. The movie was well done, no dull points, and cool CGI and fight scenes (all 3). Ryan Reynolds does a great job as always, between his snarky wit and lighthearted sarcasm, he's always enjoyable to watch. However, Sinestro get's the award for being just too awesome for a secondary role. Mark Strong stole the show honestly, his role was more demanding then they gave him room for. Yes, it's about as true to the comics as any other comic film, but it's a good movie, not a faithful recreation on film, who would really want that.

As a matter of fact, why is it every time someone watches one of these movies (comic book film, video game movie, etc), they always expect it to be the same as what they watched on TV or read in the comics or played as a younger person? If you want to watch Dragonball Z the anime the move, go watch the anime on DVD, you'll like it better. When you watch a movie, stop judging it on how exact the recreation is, that's just boring. It's why you get shit like The Last Airbender (when you really get down to it, it was season 1 in 90some-odd minutes but dopey looking). Shoot me if you like, but I enjoyed Dragonball the movie, it was an entertaining romp with characters I recognized, not a spitball at akira toriyama's creations (cough*GT*cough). The X-men movies were all great (3 pushed it a bit), the Spiderman flicks were well done (3 wasn't so much, but eh), Mortal Kombat was hillariously awesome (that song was great, you know it), and so on. Look at every one of these movies, and you see something you recognize, but different as well. Yeah some of em suck, but alot of movies suck. I mean shit, The Fast and The Furious was an awesome movie, then they fucked it up 3 more times and got the fifth one good again, shit happens...alot.

I recommend Green Lantern, it is worth the 11 bucks (don't buy the 3-D shit, not worth it). Up next, Transformers (yeah, that was respectful of its anime and cartoon origins alright, LOL).
2691  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: "No plans" for new Saga or Mana games on: June 26, 2011, 12:15:30 AM
All I have to say regarding this topic is Dawn of Mana was probably the worst thing Square in all of it's many names (squaresoft, square enix, square alone, any others that were less noteable) ever released. I don't know what the hell they were thinking allowing that to reach store shelves.

I will point out also that the Saga series of games were very hit or miss. I was a fan of most of them, but some people truly found it detestable. I'd recommend trying out Saga Frontier 2, as its story was pretty good, though the randomly ridiculous difficulty could make it a harsh experience. The story was pretty awesome though, and Gustave was an impressive character.
2692  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Freakin' Hard Boss!!! on: June 22, 2011, 12:24:19 PM
The boss that gave me the most trouble that I can remember was Miguel from Chrono Cross. Square did a great job making a bitch of a boss look like a complete pushover.
I second this, he was a prick with his glowy lightsaber., and MAIN CHARACTER being a dark element at the time. Goddamnit SE put out a PSP port of chrono cross already!
2693  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: "No plans" for new Saga or Mana games on: June 22, 2011, 12:18:59 PM
Because of that HORRIBLE DISGUSTINGLY PAINFUL Dawn of Mana, I doubt a new mana title will ever come to fruition.

Also, I'd love a new SaGa Frontier. Was one of my favorite fuck around games. I always enjoyed getting bored, starting a T-260 file and massacring everything possible.
2694  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Microsoft paid Namco-Bandai to not release PS3 version of ToV outside of Japan on: June 22, 2011, 12:15:38 PM
Yeah, this dude is kinda off his rocker. RE4 was bad on PS2? I didn't realize extra content was a bad thing? Elaborate how the game, which lost some of the visual crispness in exchange for basically a whole extra story, is now bad for being brought to the PS2, a system that is hugely popular? Did the lack of a bulky, craptastic controller get you down?

I can't argue Saturn logistics, I'm a sega hater really. Never owned one of their system directly, refused to ever own a saturn or even play it really. However, I do know of Parn's appreciation towards the system (why is beyond me), and I know that arguing with him is likely to make you angry, which will be entertaining to say the least.


More on topic, I read a little highlight on N4g about some new Tales related news last night, though of course now I can't find it. Anybody see anything on any other sites maybe, I was a little half asleep when I saw it, so maybe I'm off my rocker as well.
2695  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Microsoft paid Namco-Bandai to not release PS3 version of ToV outside of Japan on: June 21, 2011, 02:51:06 PM
I don't get the Abyss love or hate stuff. I've played essentially every english Tales game except abyss (and legendia, was hard to find at the time), and generally, outside of some serious plot devices, none have ever been dramatically astounding from the next. Why is it abyss lovers call it the greatest game, whereas general Tales fans consider it meh? I always hear the big 2 as Vesperia and Symphonia, but then you get that one Abyss fanboy and all hell breaks loose. Personally, Phantasia is probably the most directly awesome of them all, but that's me.

Hopefully Xillia and Graces F don't suck too bad, but who knows.
2696  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: WRPG virgin no more! on: June 21, 2011, 02:28:31 AM
no its not the best post ever. fist of the north star is old of dirt. way to ignore other stuff japan invented just because it supports your cause.
I'd be careful what you say cuz if kenshiro catches whiff of this...well...let's just say you're already dead.
2697  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: WRPG virgin no more! on: June 21, 2011, 01:22:20 AM
The man single handedly beat the hell out of a tank. Not a truck, not an armored car, a fucking tank. No weapons, no roid rage, just alot of anger and not enough of his girlfriend for stress relief.

Beat THE HELL out of a fucking tank.


...just don't watch the live action film made in 95.
2698  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Microsoft paid Namco-Bandai to not release PS3 version of ToV outside of Japan on: June 21, 2011, 01:15:45 AM

2699  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Microsoft paid Namco-Bandai to not release PS3 version of ToV outside of Japan on: June 21, 2011, 12:09:38 AM

How come there are no overweight, zit faced heroes in my RPGs? Why must they always be muscular, clean skinned adonis-types? I want the next final fantasy to have a hero who's like 350 lbs, wears glasses, has some serious pizza face, and one of his weaknesses is running for extended periods of time on the world map (he has asthma, without an inhaler, he will constantly lose hp).

Also, thank you for giving me a reason to shout this MGF

YOU WA SHOCK!!!!
