I've been playing Devil Summoner: Kuzunoha Raidou Vs. The Soulless Army every once in a while.  It's a good game, but I dunno.  I'm not really digging the battles.  They're fun, but capturing demons is a pain and you can't talk to them.  The plot also seems to be sillier than your average MegaTen game and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.  

That's always been my favorite part of Megami Tensei: being able to have conversations with the demons you're up against.  It seems MegaTen's moving away from that.  Nocturne had limited demon chit chat (fantastic game, though.)  DDS didn't let you talk to demons at all (still fantastic games, though.)  And the demon interactions in Devil Children were an absolute joke (and the games weren't that great either.)  

Someone please tell me that Persona 3 will allow me to have decent conversations with demons.  

I don't know.  I'm probably some head-up-the-ass nostalgia douchebag, but to me, it just ain't quite MegaTen if I can't converse with demons.

I caught "The Last Unicorn" this past weekend.  Still such a beautiful film.

EDIT: My favorite line:

Molly: But what if there isn't a happy ending?
Schmendrick: There are no happy endings, because nothing ever ends.
5643  The Rest / General Discussions / Korea is fucked too. on: April 09, 2007, 01:06:03 PM
That video was a bad acid trip.  Total WTF.  There was no point, no cohesion, no concept, nothing; just a whole bunch of fluff with no rhyme, reason, or transition.  

Bad.  Just bad.  Even some wet-behind-the-ears kid with a camera and some computer software could create a better music video in his/her basement than this low budget crap.
5644  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Grandia III review... on: April 07, 2007, 04:25:58 PM
That just happened to be Lee's opinion.  If you look at John's review of the game, he gave it much lower scores, pretty much saying the same thing: game starts off well, but then becomes disappointing towards the end.  It's the human factor.  No person can truly be objective in his/her writing.  I mean, I absolutely gushed over Hourglass of Summer (even gave it Editor's Choice) but people who aren't into Japanese love adventures would think it was a turdpile.  

And in terms of the grading, it's like teachers in school.  What would be considered a C+ paper in Ms. Jones English class would be an A paper in Ms. Greenwood's English class.  Speaking purely for myself, I generally tend to be more generous with scores than other people (benefit of the doubt and all that).

I would say if you're disagreeable with a review, take it up with the reviewer him/herself rather than air the dirty laundry on the public forums.

RESURRECTION BOULEVARD!!!!!

Anyway, here's performance my friend and I did at Rutgers.  We called ourselves Godzilla Vs. The Smurfs and we just found a hot-chick-without-a-'tude drummer and a death metal psycho guitarist/multi-instrumentalist who want to do Godzilla Vs. The Smurfs with us.  

This will either be the most awesome thing you ever saw or the most pathetic.  Either way, it features MEEEEEEE!

5647  The Rest / General Discussions / Twisted news story of the day on: April 05, 2007, 09:05:25 AM
http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/04/03/school.sex.ap/index.html

Far be it for me to moralize and all that, but damn.  I mean, I've heard of playing doctor, but this is... fuck! (no pun intended.)  

It was disturbing to a couple of us after-school aides one day when we confiscated a love note from a 5th grade girl saying she wanted to have some guy's babies.  What does it say about society that 11 year olds are *that* sexual?  Are these kids getting this at least in part from the media, like hip-hop videos and stuff?

I've been listening to "Went Away" by KOTOKO a LOT lately.  It's the song that plays during the intro of the game Hourglass of Summer.  I was quite giddy when that song was on a bonus disk with one of my Hirameki games.  

The song is absolutely gorgeous... but it's short.  2:40 is not enough.  I believe there is a longer "full" version out there but it's rare and hard to find.  I will find it.  

I loved Hourglass of Summer.  It's only one of two games I gave an Editor's Choice to.

Here's a reader review of it.  It was developed by Flight-Plan.
5650  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Pseudo topic revival: Looking back at anticipated games on: April 04, 2007, 07:39:07 PM
Man, what *was* I looking forward to this year?  I know I was looking forward to Hotel Dusk, which turned out to be quite good.  

This year, I'm so happy that after KID declared bankruptcy in December, CyberFront bought them out and this means that Memories Off #5 and 12Riven are back in development.  

Since Infinity (the KID visual novel series that includes Never7, Ever17, and Remember11) is my favorite video game series, I'm happy to hear KID's back and even if Hirameki doesn't localize 12Riven, I'll still buy the import as a collector.  

So I'm looking forward to 12Riven.  And I believe at the end of this month, FF12: Revenant Wings comes out for DS in Japan.  I wonder if a US version will hit this year.  

Oh, and if Hirameki releases anything else this year, I'm by default anticipating that.  I'm such a Hirameki love slave it's not even funny.
5651  The Rest / General Discussions / Director of "A Christmas Story" dies in car crash on: April 04, 2007, 07:32:33 PM
How dare some drunk bastard kill the guy who brought us Porky's.  That was classic testosterone ape cinema.  Oh, and Christmas Story was good too.  

Normally lowbrow films make me cringe, but I have a soft spot for Porky's.

I just played the demo version of Puzzle Quest for PC (yeah, slow day at work.)  I dig puzzle games like Bejeweled and I like RPGs, but I wasn't really feeling Puzzle Quest.  It's fun with great mechanics and some nice nonlinearity, but I didn't like that the AI is absolutely merciless.  Even on the introductory battles, the computer could pull off and chain combos like mad whereas I couldn't.  I felt the computer was cheap and often cheated.  

Were the computer AI less cheap, I'd have liked the game much better.
5653  The Rest / General Discussions / The creepiest shit you've seen in a long time, no doubt. on: April 02, 2007, 04:32:03 PM
This is creepy and pathetic all at the same time.  It's so dumb to become obsessed with a stripper.  They have a military-esque control over their emotions and can manipulate men's emotions like nobody else can.  Their ability to use psychology as such a deadly weapon frankly scares me.  Strippers are not freaking human, man.    

The whole Angela Harkness story (I read the "Bite of the Black Widow" article in an old issue of Maxim) is some scary shit, how she completely ruined so many peoples' lives.  Trail of destruction, pathological lies and all that.  

Either way, I'm not a fan of strippers or strip clubs.  Both give me the heebie jeebies.  I went to a strip club once with a few friends and I did not like it one bit.  On the other hand, I have friends who drop bills at clubs all the time.  

You're right Daniel.  I barely scratched the surface of that thing and I need a shower big time.

Telenet didn't buy FF.  S-E just decided the series needed a major shakeup and what better shake up than things like the
Code:
interactive Cloud/Yuffie makeout scene in the gondola.  She does kiss him in the original version of FF7, but in Filthy FantASSy 69, you get to go further playing a Simon style mini game to make Cloud finger her off.
