Nice to know that in your alternate reality I was forcing Dark Souls into him.

Why must you always be condescending?
It was actually meant for both of you.

Let's be realistic here. Generally, Souls is not for those that like to have their entertainment put into their mouths with a spoon gently. Does a game asking for effort on your part to get more out of the experience is that unappealing to you?

Some people do like games like that and you shouldn't belittle them.

Seriously, I'm really getting tired of how people act like Dark Souls is a game for those who like a challenge. I do enjoy a challenge. But Dark Souls isn't challenging, it's just obtuse, and even cheap as hell. It's not Mega Man. It's not Castlevania. It's not Devil May Cry, hell it's not even God War. It's certainly not Wizardry or Etrian Odyssey. I can think of plenty of games Dark Souls should take notes from, but none of them need to take notes from Dark Souls.

People consider Dark Soul fair because player skill is the top 'stat'.
You can kill the last boss with the starting dagger at starting level technically since (almost) every attack in the game can be avoided and backstab allows for good damage no matter what.
Perhaps people hold Dark Soul sacred because very few RPG allow you to beat the numbers with skill.
Megaman and all those that you said are good examples too, but they don't come from a genre where generally, the numbers were king and you had to submit to them.

Aldnoah Zero
I think that at this point, it's fairly certain that Inaho is autistic.
Great episode mostly set to explain what happened at the end of season 1.

Dog Days
Man, that is one shitty sport announcer. They should fire that guy and get one with some excitement.
Anyway, ♥♥♥

Durarara
Du dura rarara du da
I forgot how awesome Selphy was.

Idolmaster Cinderella Girls
Why would I want to watch an anime about little shits with no tits when I could watch the original cast with Chihaya with no ti... wait a sec... /joke
Anyway, good enough.

Personal tastes: how do they work.
37  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: January 10, 2015, 04:59:03 PM
Once again, I feel stupid, and am missing something, so i have to ask for help.
When you buy a game and it's soundtrack on Steam, where the hell does the soundtrack go? I've bought a few games like that recently, and can't find the music! Please help. Thanks.

Depends

If made well, you can view it in:
Library -> Music

Otherwise...
Right-click game in library -> Properties -> Local Files (tab) -> Browse Local Files... and it should be in a folder with a relevant name (ex: OST)

The game is huge.  And the fanworks around it are huge.  (I think due to the fact that the game has a huge cast of characters people like but also leaves details ambiguous enough that there's plenty of room for personal interpretations.  Perfect formula for fanwork-explosion.) But as an anime?  That's something new and it doesn't exactly feel like a natural fit.  It was never going to be easy to pull off and it's not going to please everyone.  So no, I wasn't expecting the anime budget to be huge.  Decent, but not huge.

Yeah but... using Touhou since it's a valid comparison, the Touhou fanmade anime is already slightly better than this =/

Thou hath been pardoned.

OT: Now about this dick-measuring contest you were talking about- oh wait, we weren't doing that? Okay...

Anyways, after going back to Kingdom Hearts II and Secret of Mana and actually enjoying them, I think I might go back to a few other games I disliked and see if I can glean some enjoyment from them.

...problem is, there are only 7 other RPGs I can think of that I out and out didn't like. Even legitimately bad games like Phantasy Star II and SaGa Frontier were enjoyable to some degree. Mostly it's just Golden Sun, Star Ocean 3, Dark Souls, Final Fantasy 6, Valkyrie Profile, and Atelier Rorona. I guess there's also Breath of Fire III and the Fire Emblem franchise, too. Oh, and Dragon Quest II. That game sucks. In fact most of those still suck. I might try Dark Souls, though. Apparently the fire bomb class or whatever was really good in that game, when I was playing as a knight...which was okay, but not great.
Dark Souls sucks. See how that feels?

Holy shit... you just don't learn, do you?

It's been a while since I played LoL so I launched a game.
My team had an AP support Cait troll that was just trying to piss off everyone on the team calling team shit continuously.

Yeah... you know what... I'll just keep not playing.

Well, I was expecting something FSN like since... KanColle is huge, right?

So what's the deal with arrows that turn into planes?
Seriously.
42  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: January 09, 2015, 01:52:26 PM
I liked strike Witches and K-ON and I don't feel anything for KanColle...

I made this thread a year ago or so and the XBONE and PS4 weren't out yet.
Time sure does fly...

KanColle

Right at the beginning, I'm hit by the completely farfetched setting of the anime.

The second thing I notice is that the animation is pretty bad for a 'big' name anime such as this.
- There's many still poses for the characters
- The screen filters at the beginning are sketchy and served no purpose
- There's very few frames between key frames, and
- Mouths are not animated but instead just cycle between repeating images of opened and closed.

(Ok, seriously, the more I'm progressing and the more I see that the animation sucks balls. The movements are really choppy and they keep using stills for animation - seriously WTF?)
(Seriously. Go to 5:00. It's ridiculous.)

(For fuck's sake... they are showing sliding images of the decor while the girls are talking instead of showing the actual characters...)
(Did they get no money at all for this ???)
(EDIT from after the episode - they actually do this a couple of times too)

Because there's a huge cast, they go over the characters really quickly and I can't say I really understood any of them.
I'm working under the assumption that I'm supposed to know them already to get the jokes they are showing me.

What's with the scene switching? I'm just getting confused as I don't understand the battle section and I don't get/know any of the characters in the school setting section.
Actually... why are they at school? I thought she joined a fleet ??

Arrows that transform into fighter planes? Can I get somewhat of a semblance of an explanation for this?

I think the two girls at the ice cream shop are the show's lesbian shipping.
(Get it? lesbian SHIPPING ! har har har)

So I have to ask at this point since I hit the halfway: the only explanation I'm going to get is that those girls "Have the souls of ships" ?
(EDIT from after the episode - yep)
Why is there no guy ship?
Why are there actually no other human other than the ship girls since the start?
Why are they so happy about fighting and acting all cute? Is there no chance of like one of them dying or something?

Some more 'jokes' I didn't understand.
Burning love phoenix what? I don't get any of this.

Are the girls like 20 meters tall or are the ships like 90 cm long?

The setting is ridiculous.
There is zero plot other than evil fish ships are evil.
I don't know anything about any of the characters.
The main girl sucks.
The battle scene was completely uninspired.
The voice acting is ok.
The music is somewhat ok.
The animation is bad bad bad.

Conclusion: I hold no desire to watch any more of this.

Come on guys, go get your rulers and please keep it metric.

OT: Now about this dick-measuring contest you were talking about- oh wait, we weren't doing that? Okay...

Here you go. If you feel a desire to regal others with the size of your member, please indulge.

This isn't a dick measuring contest

It is now.

(Hello mods... I am so sorry, but it had to be done.)
(Ok, not really)
