Yeah....Mena Suvari can take a hike however. She was pretty lame as Aeris.

Worse than Mandi Moore in KH?

4 Dungeons in and I can say without a doubt that Oracle of Seasons has nothing on Oracle of Ages. Never played this one before (or so I think, but I recognized the Crescent Island events for some reason), but I'm digging it a lot more than Seasons. Everything is better, particularly the dungeons and bosses (except boss #2 where getting the timing down was a major pain in the ass)

And Skull Dungeon is my new favorite Zelda dungeon theme (Okay, maybe still second to Lorule Castle)

At least you can say PM gave us Duel of the Fates, so there's that...

I feel like someone should have pointed out that tiny houses are taller than 4 feet from floor to ceiling.

Not all of them. The ones folks were talking about are, but my parents keep HGTV on when they're not watching anything else, so I've seen plenty of examples that aren't.

Next iteration of this game is just going to be Super Smash Emblem.

Can we talk about the recent "tiny house" trend? Like, seriously what the actual fuck is wrong with people!?
"46 inches floor to ceiling"
"OMG I love it!"
No. No you don't. You're just a trend-following hipster that has no capability of thinking for yourself so when someone tells you something is popular you must have it. I'm usually someone with the attitude "whatever floats your boat," but when you're sacrificing your health to be trendy, you're a fucking moron. And some of these idiots have children who are going to suffer with them. Makes my blood boil.

an example of what i wanted from this game is the resident evil remake.

I think we're probably going to get as close to that as is reasonable.  I know they said in words that they're going to change a few things, but if you go back and watch the trailer, the story scenes are pretty darn close to being a direct 1:1 adaptation of the original scenes.

Also, please keep in mind that Resident Evil has maybe (spitballing here) 10% the amount of content VII has.  So remaking one is a very different undertaking than remaking the other.
I think it honestly takes longer to get out of midgar than it does to beat resident evil. 10% may be shy still.

Let's not even think about time as a factor, since it's two completely different genres. More precisely, however, just think about how many more enemy models there are in Midgar alone compared to all of RE.

Less Bad News: Finally found a copy of Rune Factory Frontier! Spent more on it than I wanted to, but it was reasonable considering how hard it is to find.

Even Worse News: you spent too much on a pretty bad game.

I've heard it's better than Tides of Destiny, and I'm one of the few people who enjoyed Tides of Destiny, so... *shrug*

I thought that *was* what Dice was replying to! Seemed appropriate, anyway. Now I'm all confused.

Rogue Galaxy - Zerard reminds me why I hate towns in RPG's as I spend hours wandering around between each event talking to every single NPC in case one of them suddenly has a super time limited event of some kind.

I know it's something people are supposed to hate, but I LOVED the lack of towns in FFXIII.

Sorry...I literally copied that article as soon as I saw it...figured it was new.

S'okay, it wasn't on this page and you weren't the first one, just thought it was funny how many folks are bumping into that article on different sites at different times :P

Meant to update this weeks ago, but school got the best of me. I apologize :(

================================
DECEMBER 12: Best Holiday Movie Ever!
================================

Everyone has one. If you don't, you're lying to yourself or you just need to go watch some more. Also, while it's absolutely a valid option, I'm pretty sure it's long past "clever" to say Die Hard.

My personal favorite is Muppet's Christmas Carol. I have no special feelings about Charles Dickens' story, but the Muppets' interpretation of it is wonderful. I'm also not even much of a fan of musicals, but can't get enough of the songs from MCC. It's just all around a perfect encapsulation of the holiday season.

Bad News: Probably just failed my first graduate class. Studied all the wrong material this week and ended up leaving a bunch of questions blank. Best I can hope for is a 75.5 and I need a 74 to get a passing grade (84 at the university I'm attending) thanks to missing two assignments. On the way home I realized there was another question that I almost definitely got wrong which would definitely put me under the 74 I need. Yay for wasted money.

http://www.dualshockers.com/2015/12/10/final-fantasy-vii-remake-producer-yoshinori-kitase-explains-why-the-game-is-multi-part/

I have a feeling this isn't going to make anyone upset feel better, but I'm more than saisfied by this explanation.
Yoshinori Kitase clarified the "multi-part" definition somewhat on the Playstation blog.

http://na.square-enix.com/us/blog/final-fantasy-vii-remake-psx-2015-message-yoshinori-kitase

The highlight of the post is, "We’ve seen everyone’s comments and reactions to the news that FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE will be a multi-part series and many have speculated correctly as to the reason why we have made this decision. If we were to try to fit everything from the original into one remake instalment, we would have to cut various parts and create a condensed version of FINAL FANTASY VII. We knew none of you would have wanted that."

So it sounds like it will be the full game, perhaps even with new content. They just weren't going to be able to fit it all in one package as it would be too massive.

Quote from: Kitase
One thing that we wanted to be clear about during this weekend to accompany the new trailer was the scale of this project. We wanted to tell you this now and not in the future so that you’d share our vision for what we want to deliver.
The biggest reason why we haven’t done a remake until now is because it’s a massive undertaking to reconstruct FINAL FANTASY VII from the ground up with the current technology. Producing a proper HD remake of FINAL FANTASY VII that maintains the same feeling of density of the original would result in a volume of content that couldn’t possibly fit into one instalment.

We knew none of you would have wanted that.

...

I hope that by explaining a little more about our design decisions that you can appreciate the size of this project and what we have planned for this remake. Going beyond the scale and depth of the world, narrative and gameplay from the original to deliver something that feels familiar yet new. As I said before, we like delivering surprises. :)
