So what you will about Graces, but any Sophie-Malik interactions were pure gold.  Those have got to be some of my favorite skits in the franchise.

Definitely in the top few, but I kind of prefer Rita + Karol skits a bit more.

Made it to Chapter 4 in Hyperdimension Neptunia Re:Birth. I'm still amazed at how much of an improvement this game is. I tried to force myself to play through the original multiple times, but I never got very far because the graphics were terrible, the dialogue was cringe-worthy and the gameplay was slow and dull.

In Re:Birth, the graphics are pretty great for a budget game, the battle system is as fast-paced as you can ask for in a turn-based game, and the menus are 1000 times more manageable than the original. But what really amazes me is how much better the writing is. The story still suffers from the plot elements usually being spurred by all the main characters being naive and dumb as bricks, but it feels more charming than obnoxious this time around, and some of the humor manages to get an occasional smile from me.

Hoping to finish this fairly quickly so I can play a bit of the original Mk 2 before 2 Re:Birth comes out and see how those compare as well.

EDIT: Just a friendly reminder that Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories is a broken piece of garbage.

If I didn't want a refresher on the minor details of the plot, I'd skip it completely.

The are like instant money-back if you need it and keep them in good condition sealed.

Call me crazy, but if you're going to keep everything sealed then I have to wonder why you buy them in the first place...

Particularly the ones that require some assembly.

WKC aside, I have yet to play a Level 5 title I don't enjoy, really never understood all the hate. :(

Happy Day of Being Forced to Eat Awful Poultry, everyone!

Yeah... not a big turkey fan and without any friends or family I enjoy being around, it's kind of just an annoying holiday for me.

But I hope everyone has a good one all the same.

Even though you definitely don't need a intermediary "transitioning" title to enjoy these sorts of games, I will say that Recettear on PC is a fantastic option if you ARE looking for a title that meets halfway between straight-forward RPG and life-management sim.

I watched Transcendence, because generally when folks call a Sci-Fi movie/show "dumb," I roll my eyes, watch it, and find it mindlessly entertaining.

Not so this time. Transcendence is the dumbest movie I have ever seen.

Just like a lot of modern Final Fantasy games, eh?

Funny you say that because my personal problem with modern Final Fantasy games is they're entirely *too* focused.

Final Fantasy XII and XIII are both just a long chain of combat. I mean, XII had that stupid foot race mini-game but it only served to highlight how few distractions there were to take away from all the fighting.

Would it make you feel more fiscally responsible if I admitted to buying both the song and costume season passes for Project Diva F 2nd, bringing the amount of money I've spent on that one game to $140?

Outside of something general like "What's the haps?" I think this is the most schizophrenic thread I've seen since I started posting here.

And now I reflect back to my own biases.  Like I always choose the girl because I always think the girl will have the better storyline.  It's true enough of the time, but then Hexyz Force came along and proved me wrong.  The girl's storyline was enjoyable, but the boy's storyline was a LOT stronger.  He was a more interesting protagonist.  Talk about flippin' the script, huh?  

This was also the case in Dewprism/Threads of Fate

A brief trip back to the physicality conversation: I would go a step further and say Lightning is one of the more believable FF characters from a physical perspective. Lightning isn't sold to the audience as a powerhouse, she's sold as being agile and limber, which her form completely agrees with.

I mean, she uses an over-sized switchblade for goodness sake, they're not trying to make her female Cloud.

The ending to Sucker Punch.

Every. Single. Time.

Oh, and Wreck-it-Raplh. If you've seen the movie, you know what scene specifically. Damn that silly movie makes my eyes water.

Finished all the end game stuff in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and beat it. Now moving on to Re: Chain of Memories.

Xemnas The Mysterious Stranger is pretty easy when he doesn't use that binding attack.

^ I'm torn on the KH OSTs.  For the most part it's more the original areas that shine for me than the Disney worlds (with a few exceptions of course).

I'm wondering if they'll release the HD OSTs soon.  I definitely loved the reworked tracks a ton.

I adored her work on Radiant Historia and loved her for Super Mario RPG (which was an OST that knew when to be cutesy and knew when to "sound" like an RPG).

.... I'm just generalizing a lot.  GO SHIMOMURA.  Uematsu got Distant Worlds, I'd love to see other Final Fantasy composers being worked in there.

One of the reasons I'm getting 2.5 HD is to see if she can somehow make Fantasia alla Marcia even *MORE* amazing than it already is.
