Yeah, I tried watching Queen's Blade. Outside of the occassional comic brilliance that's better left to the gifs anyways, it was just a really lame fanservice anime, with a meandering plot and lots of nudity. I actually went in expecting a comedy, but it played it straight most of the time. I kept watching expecting the writers to get bored and start doing more goofy stuff, but it never really got better even in that regard.

Super Mario Galaxy isn't that great a game, at least compared to Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine.

Finally someone who shares my opinion on that game! I hate Galaxy.

Yeah, it really isn't very good, IMO. It's just too linear. Sure it's colorful and creative, but that actually disappoints me miore when I realize how little I get to explore. Not to mention they took out the best part about 64 and Sunshine: being able to get stars you're not even suppose to get yet. I love doing cool things without even being told to do it. Some stages can also be very frustrating, and I still hate that the game has lives. Lives have been putting me off platformers since I was a little kid.

I still wouldn't say I hate it, though. It's just disappointing and kinda meh for me. I still managed to play it off and on to get halfway through, though that was by playing one level per session.

I do, though! I rarely if ever replay games, let alone 50+ hour games. Tales games are the only non-Pokemon RPGs I've ever replayed...and maybe FF4.

Am I the only one who think that thing looks ugly? And how the heck am I supposed to fit that in my pocket?

Yes, totally getting it. I've already played it through on the PS2 and the Wii, but now I'm ready to play it again.

I kinda hope it doesn't require Move. I know it'd help a lot, but I hate the thought of getting a silly attatchment like that if I'm only gonna use it for one game.

Sure, massive spoilers for those unfamiliar with Fate/Stay Night:

Code:
By the end of Fate/Zero pretty much everyone dies.  Emiya Kiritsugu and Saber win the holy grail war but somehow his wish doesn't work and it causes a huge tragedy that destroys much of the surrounding town (the only survivor being a young Shirou, F/SN's main character, who gets adopted by Kiritsugu).  Kiritsugu is also cursed after that and his body slowly weakens until he dies so he spends what time he has left raising Shirou.  Kotomine Kirei and Gilgamesh survive, the latter being somehow turned from a heroic spirit into flesh and blood by the grail.  They go on to be major antagonists in F/SN.  The daughter of Kiritsugu and Irisviel becomes the vessel for the next grail.  Though I'm not really sure why Kiritsugu decides to spend his remaining years raising Shirou but not with his own daughter...


Huh. That's all then? Sounds like most of the main story was reconciled, if I'm reading that correctly. Then I guess I didn't have much to worry about, so maybe I'll give the show a shot some time. Thanks a lot.

OK, we're getting off-topic here but how the heck can you know something has your "two least favorite characters ever" if you haven't even seen it...

I read the Visual Novel enough to know I hate the main characters, but not enough to get the main plot outside of the whole tournament thing.

And I think either you misunderstood what I mean by inclonclusive (I don't want something that ends like it's setting up a sequel. I know that's asking for too much here, but if it can at least find some middle ground, I think I'd be fine. I'm really anal about finishing anime stories and if I can feel at all satisfied when it ends, I'd probably call it a victory for Fate/Zero), or more likely, I'm not understanding how it's supposed to end, in which case, enlighten me, I'm the only one here who doesn't know it anyways.

Er...you're going to watch the ending first?

No...I just meant that I'm gonna wait and hear what people say about the ending before I dive into it. Obviously I'm not gonna watch the ending first. That would just be silly.

Well, I don't get that.  Especially in this case.  It's a prequel so we already have a pretty good idea how it's going to end.

I thought it was an alternate universe type thing? And it's not like prequels can't have shitty endings. In fact, for some reason it's the only thing I think it can screw up at this point, which is why I'm waiting.
prequel  to fate stay night. the ending is pretty much known to anyone who follows the fate stay night series.

Argh, I guess I should be specific: I want to make sure the ending is conclusive enough so I don't feel like I have to watch Fate/Stay Night to get the whole story. Because I'm not watching that show. Ever. Not unless they can rewrite the entire thing without my two least favorite characters ever. Besides, a non-conclusive ending is always bad, IMO, regardless of whether or not there is a sequel.

Personally, I'm waiting to see how Fate/Zero handles its ending before I start that.

That, and they delayed G.I. Joe 2 and World War Z! There is a G-d! =D

Two more I'm too lazy to see if I mentioned already:

Ocarina of Time is Middle of the road as far as Zelda is concerned.
Super Mario Galaxy isn't that great a game, at least compared to Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine.
1094  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: trading in used games on: June 16, 2012, 01:37:31 PM
I don't trade stuff in anymore, Instead I trade games with other people. Despite that, I used to trade in a lot of games and only regretted a few, which I have now amended (I sold Windwaker and Super Mario 64 =( Not my smartest ideas). Still gotta get Meteos back, but I'll wait for a good digital rerelease.
1095  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: June 12, 2012, 04:35:29 PM
The past 3 seasons, this one included, have been very uninteresting to me. Only really good show I got that started recently is Hunter X Hunter, and maybe SKET Dance if I ever remember to watch more of it. Might be something else I'm forgetting, too. Not that it matters, I still have a virtual backlog of 300+ shows to watch, plus One Piece, which is the span of 10-40+ shows all by itself, I don't really have time to stay caught up on all the current anime.
