I'm not a fan of reboots, but this does look pretty cool. Plus it helps that I don't remember the first Robocop at all, so I have nothing really to complain about.
1097  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC Announced for Steam/PSP on: September 06, 2013, 12:03:58 PM
^Disappointing but understandable. Seriously, they'd need a bigger translation group if it's true that later ones are bigger. I'll live, just so long as there's no cliffhanger at the end of SC.

Monsoon: I am pretty sure the "Vita" version is just the PSP version playable on Vita.  You can transfer your save files from your PSP to the Vita if that's the case.
Huh, I thought that transferring save files wasn't an option.  In that case, decision made. 

Nope, it's actually pretty simple.  You have to have the Content Manager for Vita installed on your PC.  It'll give you a folder where all of your PSP game files from the Vita will live and you can just connect your PSP & dump save files to that folder.  Then you use the content manager and transfer them to Vita.  Problem solved.

If you have it, you can also use a PS3, IIRC. Just connect you PSP to the PS3, transfer over your PSP save file, then connect the Vita and use the Vita's content manager to copy the PSP save data from the PS3 to the Vita.

Trying to make sense of Bleach is an exercise in futility . Tite has retconned it  to the point of utter retardation.

After the latest chapter...I'm inclined to agree. That post I made above about a blatant line in Bleach? Yeah, now I think even Kubo forgot about it...damnit man, stop making me look bad the one time I decide to defend you. :P

I like e-readers for comics since having a bunch of graphic novels and comic books around is just too messy for me. Plus going back and finding them is much more convenient on a e-reader, too.

...Not that I read a lot of comics anymore. I used to have a bunch, but I honestly grew out of superhero comics, and I've been having trouble getting into non-superhero comics. The last comic I read that I enjoyed was a 4-issue indie comic called Command Review...whose plot I can't remember anything about, and I'm not even sure how I ever found it. Did I dream it up? All I know is it gave me the idea to check out super-obscure comics looking for hidden gems...which just led to a lot of wasted money on really terrible comics. Turns out they were all obscure because no one liked them. Who knew?

I know I'm still on the hunt for a comedy comic that's not a comic strip. You know, something that's light-hearted yet still at least somewhat story-focused? And doesn't completely suck? I've wanted to read something like that since I was a little kid. Closest I got was Deadpool, but that's still too much of a superhero comic for my tastes and I just couldn't get into it. (and of course I've found some really crappy ones, but I'd rather not talk about those...)

Fullbring - Chad himself. They needed to explain him somehow.
Quincies - I'm absolutely sure it's heavily implied, if not explicitly stated somewhere within episodes 43-45. They also mentioned how the glove was considered archaic, implying that the quincies had obtained powers that exceeded it.

They also implied heavily several times throughout the entire Soul Society arc about the hollow power thing.

Really, if nothing else, he most likely had the ideas down.
Chad's powers were given origins....twice before the Fullbring arc. He was not in need of a third origin story. For those who weren't keeping track, originally his powers were latent spiritual powers (like Orihime's powers) that were awakened by being into close proximity to Ichigo because Ichigo is a freaking nuclear reactor that turns the people into superheros. Then his powers were essentially stated to be related to be hollow powers with no real description of how the heck that worked. There was really no clue or implication that there was more to Chad's powers then that. Side note, Chad as a fullbringer was always weird to me since it seemed to fit Orihime much better than Chad. Speaking of Orihime, I would say that her powers were in greater need of an explanation than Chad's powers because she has the freaking powers of God with no explanation as to why. While Chad's powers are completely unimpressive.....and comepletely irrelevant to anything that happens in the series (like Chad heyoh!). I could say the same thing about Orihime, but she is probably the Spirit King taking the form of a teenage girl.....because Bleach. *shrug*

As for Quincies I have to disagree because I am positive that it is stated outright that Ushida is the last Quincy. Having a freaking army of Quincies.....
Code:
And having Ichigo being a freaking Quincy also.
Does not fit with that.

I don't think they ever said that Chad's were the result of Ichigo, so much as it came out because of being near Ichigo. They still had to explain why he had those latent abilities in the first place...but you're right, they never explained Orihime. That always bugged me.

And Ushida thought he was the last quincy, that they'd all been wiped out. Then in episode 43,
Code:
they explain that they had been experimenting on Quincies for decades, including Ushida's grandfather, and that the only reason they stopped was because the mad scientist in question was finished with his research on them. If that doesn't say "there are way more quincies than previously thought" I don't know what will...

I think it stems from the fact that most other Shonen series are even worse about powerlevels than DBZ.

Well at least there is always One Piece, where everyone is useful (even Usop) and the battles are go beyond who can punch the other guy harder.
I think Bleach never even knew what it was supposed to be.

Honestly, after my rewatch of the first season of Bleach, I think Kubo at least had a vague idea of where he wanted to go with everything. Much of the later arcs were implied in the earlier parts, it's really just down to how poorly it was excecuted that's lead to its fate.
I don't know about that. I mean really where were Fullbringers ever implied? Or the fact that the Quincies were not in fact extinct? The....whatchamacallits that were shinigamis turned hollows may have been originally planned since their leader's design is in some early artwork for the series. But for the most part, I fall into the camp of believing Kubo just pulled the whole later chapters out of his rear.

Quincies - I'm absolutely sure it's heavily implied, if not explicitly stated somewhere within episodes 43-45. They also mentioned how the glove was considered archaic, implying that the quincies had obtained powers that exceeded it.

I'm not the biggest fan of his movies, but I did respect much of what he did. Still, he's 72. The man deserves a long rest and to enjoy the rest of his life.

Nice, I think my enthusiasm for this game is returning in full swing. And this was one of the 3 games I essentially bought the 3DS for...

I'm down with waiting a little longer if we're getting the "fancier" version.

I am, too, but I'm not holding my breath. At this point I might take what I can get...

Finally got up the courage to check out the trailer and it looks...okay. Nothing exceptionally wrong-looking about the gameplay, but overall doesn't look like it's doing much exciting, either. Kind of reminds me of Opoona, actually, another really gimmicky RPG...although Opoona actually had an interesting enough aesthetic that made it feel rather genuine in comparison. I guess I'll wait on reviews before even getting excited about this.
1107  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: August 25, 2013, 02:46:37 PM
Casshern Sins....is AWESOME

Surprised you're liking that one. It seems to be love or Meh for a lot of people. I was kinda meh just because I couldn't withstand the slow pacing and depressing atmosphere. How far in it are you?
1108  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 25, 2013, 02:43:42 PM
They need to do a free world transfer service for the first month.

That would be great, since I'd love to be in Hyperion, but I'm stuck in Diablos for now...but I know that chances are, even with that, I probably won't be able to transfer to that or any other Legacy server, for obvious reasons...
1109  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: July 27, 2013, 12:31:02 PM
I guess I don't mind shows being slow, because I did not feel that the pace was that bad when I watched it. I wasn't exactly a patient Teenager when I saw it, either...

And I don't know, I felt like the I got the feeling the show was going for quite well. Granted, I haven't seen an episode in quite some time, but I still remember the feelings of hopelessness. I believe I got up to 11 or 12. I don't want to spoil anything, in case you're not there yet, but there's one fight that I especially liked around then that I felt really nailed that feeling.

I dunno what else to say. I've been feeling like our tastes in mecha have been lining up over the past few years. I can't really say "give it more time", since at this point, you've watched more than I have, I think.
1110  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: July 26, 2013, 06:55:56 PM
I am watching the Layzners. I have more hate than love for it so far.

Why?
