I apologise in advance.

Honey and Clover

 I didn't mind the show although it fell down near the end. It was interesting seeing the main character being part of a love triangle but not the centre of it. Morita was awesome throughout and the few episodes he was not in were probably my least favourite.

Wasn't expecting that ending at all. One of the few shows I have seen where the main characters love interest likes someone else and doesn't fall for the MC by the end.

Really liked the episode. I love Deionarra's Theme from Planescape Torment. I am a bit ashamed that out of an episode dedicated to western rpgs, my favourite song played was the Tina/Terra theme.

Lightning Returns was...ugh.  I tried to go into it with an open mind, but I disliked pretty much everything I saw.  I didn't care for the new combat system, the storytelling was garbage as expected, and the whole costume system really does come off as blatant fanservice.  The victory poses and stuff were just so unnecessary...and completely out of character, at least for what little character Lightning had.

Was the combat much different than XIII and XIII-2? They actually grew on me after a while. I thought the battle system in XIII-2 was a nice improvement from its predecessor.

Virtues Last Reward

Great game. I guessed most things before they happened but in a way that made it better.

Didn't see them being on the moon though. That came out of nowhere for me. Knox's Ten Commandments clued me in on most of what would happen.

Can't wait for the third entry.

Watched up to Gobs episode in Arrested Development. Definitely my favourite episode in this season so far. I find his jokes have changed from being stupidly funny to being both cringeworthy and funny at the same time. The rest of the episodes were ok, definitely an improvement from the start. Michael's second episode was probably my least favourite from the episodes I watched. He is fine when around other Bluthes but not that funny on his own.

This movie was great, probably the best movie I have seen in a while. While I didn't find the jokes and pranks that funny, I loved that they felt so natural. It was something that I would expect kids their age and in their scenario to say and do. Definitely recommend it to anyone who has not seen it yet.

Saw a fox which was pretty awesome. He looked at me for a second or two before legging it.

I have done the twelve pubs of Christmas before. I don't try to purposefully get drunk when out so I usually stop at my fifth or sixth drink leaving me merrily tipsy rather than drunk. A pub crawl isn't as bad as it sounds. it is around one drink every 25 minutes. It isn't like you chug the twelve drinks back one after the other.

I would say the price of 12 drinks is a more terrifying thought than drinking them in one night.

I enjoy perma death for the way it makes me see battles differently. In other SRPGs I play, sacrificing units is often part of my strategy because I know they will be back for the next battle. Tactics Ogre and FFT method of perma death is too slow and easily fixable to achieve the same thing for me.

I don't have the DLC so that way of grinding is not available to me. Reeking boxes are also not an option for reasons Aeolus already mentioned. The only times I used Spotpass to grind were to level Donnel up to level 5 villager making him become usable and raising support ranks in the post game. It doesn't really matter at that stage though. Overall I found it a decent enough challenge although Kellem and Frederick seemed almost untouchable until the later stages of the game.

I liked the movie. Certain parts bugged me such as certain characters voices but otherwise it was a fun watch. Kruger was great and the highlight of the movie for me.

Shrek Forever After

Not a big fan of this one. I can't explain why either, it just felt flat.

Puss in Boots

Loved it. I actually really enjoyed the first Shrek movie, mostly because it felt different that other fairy tale stories I saw. Puss in Boots accomplished the same thing and was extremely enjoyable. Humpty Dumpty was extremely creepy completely going into the uncanny valley.

Otherworld is a song that I feel could have been good, but was not done properly.  The way the song was produced and EQ'd made is sound like mud with too much treble.  In my review of the Final Fantasy Vocal Collection soundtrack, I said this about Otherworld:

I appreciate the experimentation into heavy metal with "Otherworld", and it goes very well with that first Blitzball scene, but it's not as good a song as it could have been. The main riff is solid, and there is some delightfully dissonant soloing during the bridge and choruses, but the overall tone is too processed and compressed, leading to a somewhat nasal sound. I feel the same way about the guttural, growled vocals. They are so processed and compressed that they sound almost auto-tuned. What I also disliked was that the spoken vocals during the bridge took away from the cool solo that was going on. And do not get me started on the paper-thin lyrics. Metal is one of my favorite genres of music, particularly death metal, and I like my guitars and vocals with a fuller, crisper, and more organic sound. I think the razor-sharp sound of Fear Factory's album "Demanufacture" is what "Otherworld" should have tried for instead of the muddy mess it is.

I did like the Black Mages version of it with the clean female vocal.  Maybe it didn't fit the music as well as a growler would, but it was far preferable to the overly processed growling in the original version where it sounded like an autotuned metalcore vocalist with a paper bag on his head. 

I am on the opposite side of the spectrum. I agree that it went well with the blitzball match in the beginning and I also loved when it played during the boss fight. While I like the Black Mages version I can't see it working in either of those parts of the game.

I do agree with you when it comes to listening to it outside the game though. I felt it fit perfectly with the game but its flaws were more noticeable outside it.

Never had an issue with Gamestop employees myself. They all offer the protection plan but never try to force me to get it. They only ever ask the one time. I have only bought games in two of their stores so I may just have been lucky.
