I still like 08th MS Team more, but yeah, it's pretty great, IMO.

They used to. They used to...

Gundam had great dubs, too. It's a shame we won't get Turn A gundam officially subbed any time soon. IIRC, the fansubs were decent, though, so it might be worth checking them out someday. IIRC, Turn A gundam was slow to get going, but was great once they were headed into space.

Also, I still like to watch Dubs when I can and Funimation does great dubs, usually.

On the contrary, it's kind of hard to look down on someone who has a profession such as accounting the way people do when you work (barely above) minimum wage in retail.

I know several accountants. I hate to to burst your bubble, but no one likes accountants...

Oh, right, I saw this last week, I think. Wasn't really that impressed before, not impressed now. I prefer stuff that at least tries to be its own thing.

Barrage seemed really awesome to me. Like, potentially everything I could've wanted from a manga awesome. It had a fantastic set up, at least, but all they got to do was set up before it got canned...

Oh yeah, the Beginning of Bleach was Fantastic. Naruto (as in the first series) was good, but it just doesn't handle the slow moments well, and sometimes its comedy is just way too childish for my tastes. But Bleach...if it was able to follow up the soul society arc in a much better fashion than it did, I think it would've ended up being a classic. The whole Aizen thing was a huge turn-off for me...

Well I don't count that section because it's so heavily scripted. I felt like I might as well have been watching a movie rather than actually playing the game. In fact, it wasn't really playing until you leave to go to Figaro (that submarine castle. That was Figaro, right?) that I felt like I was actually engaged, though I suppose that psuedo-RTS section required some effort...I guess...

What was the last Koei-published game that didn't offer dual audio (or at least Japanese audio) at some point?
1254  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs that All Children Should Play on: August 06, 2014, 01:43:04 PM
From my experience, Kids are much more persistant than adults. Persistance =/= patience, though. I think a game for kids should be quick to get into, or at least start off with a bang, like how FF7 starts off with a rather neat dugeon, giving you only a short intro as to who you are and why you're doing it, culminating in a rather gimmicky boss fight and a Super Metroid-like Speed-Backtrack-so-you-don't-blow-up kinda thing. Whereas Final Fantasy 6 spent, like, a half-hour at least before you could actually do anything.

Or like how my first real RPG was the original Final Fantasy that I found on a website. It literally dropped you into the game with barely any info whatsoever, and I knew jack squat as to how to play. Hell, I didn't even know the basics of equipment management, and the NES version didn't tell you much in the shops, IIRC. It was all supposed to be in a manual I didn't have. But I learned. After 3 hours of dying against freakin' Goblins, I learned. I experiemented, I explored, I extrapolated, and I eventually started talking to the townsfolk, which turned out to be much more helpful than I expected...but eventually I beat the first boss and felt like a freakin' champion. I've seen this quite a bit with kids. So long as it isn't boring, they'll keep at things, just because. It's like how some kids could beat Mega Man back in the day. They weren't gonna let the game beat them. If there's a problem, more than likely they'll find some way to solve it, even if it involves searching or asking for a little help.

And then there are Manga like Barrage, that get cancelled before they really go anywhere.

Yes, I'm still mad about that.

Oh, I remember Justin.tv. It sucked. Good riddance.

Also, I'll admit that Jim's shtick is that he's a consumer advocate, but, well...that's kind of a really good thing, if you ask me. I'm honestly tired of people making excuses for companies, especially when they do things that aren't exactly consumer-friendly. Sure, Jim could be giving more of the other side of the coin, but I think the PR groups will do plenty of that already - seriously, damage control is a big part of their job, so why should someone else do their job for them?

Still, I'm sure that he's said stupid stuff and I highly suggest never taking anybody at face value, let alone a talking head like Sterling. I'm sure you know that already, though. :P Also, I really can't stand his other shtick where he's all "full of himself", especially since it never seems to mesh with the rest of the video from what I've seen.
1257  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: If I were to watch ONE comedy show... on: August 05, 2014, 10:14:54 PM
I hate comedies, American comedies especially. I really digged Flight of the Concords.

I'm going to babble on for the rest of the post because.

What little I've seen of The Office was really funny, too. Not sure if I should try watching a full episode or just try watching more clips. I also thought I heard it gets more absurd as the seasons go by.

As far as cartoons are concerned, Futurama is easily the best I've seen, by a country mile. I saw a few episodes of Rick and Morty, and it came the closest to Futurama out of any other cartoon I've seen, but it's still not there yet. I should really see more of that someday, though.

I'll admit that I only know about Parks and Recreation from the Ron Swanson clips I've seen, but that alone warrants its existance in my eyes. Maybe someday I'll check out the series to see how the rest of it is.

Sgt. Frog's English Dub/rewrite was exceptional from what I recall, Momoka-focused episodes aside. I'm not sure if it was just a fluke, though. I tried watching season 3 a couple different times and just couldn't get into it...but when I was in it, it was 52 episodes of almost nonstop laughter. I'll admit a lot of it was pretty childish and it definitely isn't for everyone, but something about it just clicked and I couldn't stop watching. I hadn't felt like that before besides when I found VG Cats (and if you can't tell, I really really like VG Cats).

Gintama and Arakawa Under the Bridge are two of the very very few Japanese comedies I've ever gotten into. They are sheer genius at times, and at the very least consistantly chuckle-worthy. I need to watch more of them, though. I guess I'm still afraid of having "too much of a good thing" and burning out.

Speaking of burning out: DBZ Abridged! Loved this one. I actually just got finished watching it from beginning to end for the 3rd (4th?) time. I think I'm a little addicted since my brain kept talking in the voices of the various characters for 3 days straight. I think it only just stopped. I'm pretty tuckered out, now, though. I need something somewhat serious again...

@the Spoiler, considering it's supposed to be post(Mid?)-apocalyptic, I wouldn't expect anything else. If anything, I'd call that a strength, so long as it's done well enough.

It is less anyone can die(which I am fine with) but rather if you actually have the option to save or let the person die, they are living on borrowed time from that moment on. Characters that were given the option to be killed are 100% sure to die for good before the season is out. It kind of makes you think your choices are irrelevant in the greater scheme of the game. They are of course and that is to be expected with this type of game but it should be hidden from the player.  

Well, yeah, from a purely gameplay perspective, that might seem like a dick move, but I think it would work with the story - they're literally trying to errode your moral, which being in a horrible situation like a zombie apocalypse tends to do. Of course, at some point they have to stop, but without telling you, preferably within the third season, or else it'll lose its impact. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Okay, yeah, "Farwell, Pride" was hilarious, and I haven't even played this game. ^_^;

I actually agree with a lot of what Jim says in the videos I've seen...but than again, I only watch his videos when it's a subject where I'd actually value his opinion.

So basically I've only watched 10 of his videos.
