1351  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Sweden: "Men Who Like Adult Manga Are Sick Pedophiles" on: June 19, 2011, 01:19:28 PM
So according to this radio show and so called experts any man who gets off to hentai (regardless of whether it's lolicon or not) is a dangerous sex criminal...

Considering the content of most hentai, I can't blame him. Saying they're all Pedophiles is obviously ignorant, but if it's not Lolicon, I've yet to see a hentai Manga that didn't contain some other sick fetish, and I've looked pretty hard. (still, feel free to prove me wrong)

With all this HD thing I remembered Zone of the Enders: The Fist of Mars, you know, the GBA game that almost nobody cared to play because "lol handhelds". I wonder if it could be a wise choice to remake that game for the 3DS or Vita while we wait for Zone of the Enders 3.

A new Z.o.E. game for 3DS or Vita could be pretty nice too I guess. :T

I thought I was the only one who still cared about that game. I'd love to see a remake someday, or at least a sequel in the same vein. Doubt it'll happen, but I can dream.

I just started This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, based on a recommendation from a user here, and from an AMV I favorited on Youtube. I'm 6 episodes in. So far, it seems like it has a lot of potential. I like the characters a lot, the love story aspect isn't as sappy as I expected, and the action was cool, if a bit sparse. The story seems pretty mysterious right now, it could turn out to be very interesting. Really, I can't wait to watch more of it. I might marathon it today until I finish it.

I also think the show just jumps into things. There's no setup, no kind of meandering sub-plots, it just goes.

Zeta, which really hit it's stride in the last ten episodes, suffers horribly from this.

On the one hand, I agree that what you said was a strength for 08th MS Team. On the other hand, I never felt Zeta Gundam "suffered" from them. I felt it was a good pace for what they were trying to do.

And speaking of Gundam, I just finished Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny. First off, I'd like to say that this show was not as bad as I was led to believe. I think 'Guarded Praise' best sums up my feelings for it.

Starting with the visuals, the mech designs were even better than Gundam SEED's -  a feat, I'd say, since I held SEED's designs to be the best in the series. The character designs were also as good as ever - Hisashi HIRAI continues to be my favorite character designer. The animation was also fantastic, as far as I could tell. The music was also very good, though not as good as the music in Gundam SEED. Oh, and I should also note that the dub was mostly good...although the dubbed music wasn't so good.

The story I felt was very entertaining. It wasn't anything exceptional, but it held my interest for the majority of its 50 episodes. Most of the characters were alright, and most were developed well enough that I cared for them when they either died or I thought they were gonna die. The beginning and ending were disturbingly similar to Gundam SEED's, but while SEED's beginning was more meaningful, Destiny's ending had more of an impact.

What I didn't like were the blatant references to other Gundam shows, particularly the first Mobile Suit Gundam and Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. Then there's Shinn Asuka - I don't think I've ever hated a character in the entire metaseries as much as this guy, and he's the protagonist. He's a naive fool, through and through - putty in the main villian's hands. On the plus side, though, for once the main villian isn't entirely evil, and I found it difficult to understand why he needed to be stopped. He was actually at least partially in the right, and his thinking always made sense. As far as I know, this is a first for the series, and something that I felt it really needed.

In the end, I really liked this one. It's not exactly top material - it made too many references for its own good, and the protagonist annoyed me the whole way through - but it was definitely entertaining and easily recommendable to fans of the first Gundam SEED.

EDIT:

Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Astray - Not much to say about this one, seeing as it was 15 minutes all together. It was basically meant to entice people into purchasing the model kits and manga. Personally, I'd say it did it's job fairly well. The characters were charming right off the bat, and the action was excellent. The mobile suits were very well shown off. I'm definitely far more interested in the manga now, and I see they're fairly cheap. I might have to get a few volumes.

Mobile Suit Gundam: 08th MS Team is one of my top 3 favorite Gundam shows. The stories so awesome, mostly because it's a bit more realistic.
1356  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 10, 2011, 04:59:29 PM
^Try Stealing in Ultima. It makes the game a whole lot better.

Gundam SEED Destiny wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The first few episodes at least are very entertaining, and Shin's starting to grow on me (though I'm still hoping he gets beat up eventually). His immature attitude and needless references to other Gundam shows still annoy me, but other than that, I'm very glad to be watching it.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the character designs either, but other than that, I'm excited for it big time.
1359  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 07, 2011, 10:52:58 PM
I marathoned through Sam & Max Season One over the Weekend. Loved it except when I got stuck, which was often since I suck at these games. Also played through World 1 of LittleBig Planet PSP. Enjoying it more than expected.
1360  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: PlayStation Vita Announced (late 2011, $249/$299 for WiFi/3G+WiFI) + some games on: June 07, 2011, 10:22:06 PM
I'm interested in:

Street Fighter X Tekken
Wipeout 2048
Uncharted: Golden Compass
LittleBig Planet
Resistance
Bioshock
Killzone
Little Deviants
Super Stardust Delta
Gravity Daze
Sound Shapes
Dragon's crown
BlazBlue Continuum Shift II Plus Revitalized

TGS (which is where most of the games I'm interested appear) hasn't happened yet and already there are almost twice as many games that I want for the Vita than the 3DS.

I just watched an interview between GameTrailers and Reggie Fils-Aime (did I spell that right?) and he flat-out said that there are a bunch of Wii and DS games that they haven't even mentioned yet, that will show up later.

So there's hope? Yay~
1362  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: street fighter 3 3rd strike online edition on: June 07, 2011, 05:43:09 PM
Trailer was great. Too bad I already got 3rd Strike for the PS2 (and don't like it very much).
Probably because of the steep as hell learning curve and hardcore slant the game has.

Yeah, that's pretty much it. Even on the easiest difficulty level I get my butt kicked towards the end once the CPU starts using Parries, and my bro didn't take to it either.

I bought Tales of Legendia from Federax. Had very good comunnication from him, was flexible with the payment options, and for an international mailing it arrived pretty fast. Not to mention the game was in top shape, just as he had promised. I'm very pleased.

I'm honestly not impressed with the Wii U, I didn't see anything that really made it stand out from the Wii or Xbox 360 other than some odd gimmicks. Of course, it is still early. I'm sure I'll change my mind by the end of the next E3.
