Me and my friend finally finished the last quest in Warframe after procrastinating it for a long time.
The thing it unlocked is really cool and really spoilerific.

wink wink nudge nudge (spoilers)

Star Ocean 2 is pretty bad with this. It takes a pretty long time before you get to actually play.
Although I just can't stay mad at the game because the beginning is so damn good that it's worth the wait.

If some people here weren't aware, Vaan was shoehorned in the game because the higher ups thought people needed a teen to identify with.
The whole game was made Vaan-less and then they had to find reasons for him to be there at all.

I get paid enough to eat luxuriously (I could probably eat restaurant every day) but I pretty much buy mundane stuff and eat frugal home cooked meals.

Does anyone else feel like this thread really does help us to get to know each other?  I was kinda chuckling at the last few updates because I just looked at the username and I already knew what they were going to talk about.

Dincrest: bikes!
Daggerstrike: house!
Klutz: job!
Mesh: i take LSD daily!

Really, I don't think I could do that with people I know IRL.  Which is a shame.  I should take the time to listen to my associates the way I take the time to read this thread.

I need to start talking about one thing repeatedly in here so that it becomes my shtick.
...
I got nothing.

I like that they added moving crowds everywhere. Makes the city feel alive.
It's one of the things I like about Yakuza.

Best thing by far that was shown today, speaking for myself, was the siege battles in Mount and Blade: Bannerlord.
Everything they've shown about that game makes me know I'll love it.

Prediction!

On its release I expect FFXV to receive general critical praise (7-8+/10) and general fan disgust.

12 months later, everyone will hate it equally.

I can see that happening.
Time is a harsh critique for some games.

I have no idea if I want to play a game about being a bartender...
But I really dig the visuals and might get it just for that.

I played a lot over the years but sadly not on that server.

Anyone watch the EA presser? Another disappointment very similar to last year with a lost behind-the-scenes looks at games not far enough in development for even solid teaser trailers.

Slept right on through it. I'm more interested in Bethesda's stuff anyways.

I stand by my statement:

Going to have to disagree with you there...

I've read all of ReLIFE that is currently out (Mainly because it's on Comico and I really like their app.  There aren't a lot of places you can access Japanese manga overseas with so little hassle.) and I would rate it OK at best.  It's occasionally interesting but I just can't get over how poorly thought out the whole main plotline is.  There are plotholes big enough to drive an aircraft carrier through, and that ruins the whole suspension of disbelief for me...

Two things:

#1 Yeah, the premise of the story is completely unbelievable in many ways. You just have to roll with it without thinking too much about it.
Still, the character interactions are entertaining (and Hishiro is HHNNNGGG lvl moe). As far as slice of life goes, this is a good one.
Also, I really like the art style and character designs. Hoping they keep everything the same there for the anime.

#2 That you complain about my suggestion of ReLIFE instead of Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA 3rei!! is a small victory to me

This fits so well... it's eerie

A bit late, but still... it's the new season announcements (was waiting for a new page)

Chart:
http://anichart.net/summer

Onward with the animes:

BERSERK:
You just know this one is going to be a heavy hitter. Plot can't be any worst than the manga (so good) and the animation will be AAAA quality.

Double dealing of DANGANRONPA
Kinda weird to have 2 DANGANRONPA animes in one season, but I've heard these things are pretty good so should be fine.
I haven't watched any of these yet but definitively plan to binge the whole thing at some point.

Love Live! Sunshine!!
This is what they killed the main cast of Love Live for...
I'm somewhat intrigued to see if these new girls are better or not considering that they kinda can't go back to the old ones now.

ReLIFE
WATCH THIS!
WATCH THIS! WATCH THIS! WATCH THIS! WATCH THIS! WATCH THIS!
Seriously... watch it. The comic is awesome.

Tales of Zesty anime
Usually these things are good. So an alternative to playing the game or add-on for big fans of the game.

ACTIVE RAID season 2
A police themed mecha show that had a good first season.
It's more nonsensical and funny than serious.
If you need mechs in your life, watch this one (possibly the only one this season).

Re: Zero
Keeps going into the next season and if you haven't tried it, you should rectify that.
It's one of the best plot for an "I've been sent to a fantasy world and I'm the hero" I've seen.

Movies - And there are a lot of them this season

Digimon Tri (final batch)
I've said again and again that I was scared for this, but Tri has been a blast.
Really excited for the last batch.

KINGSGLAIVE FINAL FANTASY XV
Is it going to be good? I can't say. Is it going to be pretty as fuck? Yeah.

Koe no Katachi
Based on a very good award winning manga. Features a deaf heroine.
This isn't some kind of pity award for featuring disabled characters BTW; It is legit as hell.
I strongly recommend.

Planetarians: Hoshi no Hito
I figure that anyone who 'played' the game will be interested in this.

OVA - Same as movies, many good things this season

Mahou Tsukai no Yome
A monster magician purchases an orphelin, weds her and wants to teach her magic.
It sounds bizarre and creepy but it's really nice and cute.
Not sure what they'll do with just 3 (manga is ongoing) but they have plenty of plot to choose from at least.

Persona 5: The Animation
Probably just a short intro to the game. We'll likely get a full serie later on.

Planetarian: Chiisana Hoshi no Yume
Wait? Didn't I write Planetarian above? Yes I did. This is the plot from the game while the movie is a different plot.
i.e. this is the planetarium projector fixing that gave us the feels.

WE NOW INTERRUPT THIS POST FOR AN URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT!!

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMAILLYA 3rei!!
Here we go! Season 3!
This follows the 3rd set of manga with the same name. The manga is ongoing currently but I'm not scared because it's far along and this will likely be 2 cours.

Now, what is Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA? It's a new serie featuring Illya as the protagonist with most of the FSN characters having different roles.
The show is part magical girl, part humor, part slice of life, part combat and part ecchi (it does include males here, so that's something \_(ツ)_/ )

While the first season is goofy and cute, season 2 sets more of a fighting tone. Season 3 will now focus mostly on conflict.
For example, 3rei features a battle royal so huge, I can see it taking 2 episodes.
Want an example of what a battle can look like? Do watch this one from season 2 (not that big of a spoiler)

If you're not a Type-Moon connoisseur, then it needs to be said that they animate overly stylized, beautiful combat scenes with incredible attention to details.
Where a normal anime would have a bowman shoot an arrow like this:

Type-Moon does it like this:


Finally, since we have a lot of music people on this forum I will mention that a lot of the songs in Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA are remixed/variations of classic Fate Stay Night songs.
Illya's theme for example is a remix of Emiya's theme from Unlimited Blade Works

I said I wouldn't sell Concrete Revolutio, but I'm still going to say that this week's episode was really nice.
MC totally doubled down and is going all out.
Gives me high hopes for a good finale.
