Also the EXTEND....

I was all set to play Devil May Cry again when I got distracted by Street Fighter III: Third Strike. I was never a huge fan of that game, but I'm really warming up to it. I never thought it was mechanically bad, but I didn't like the characters at first and it felt heavy and slow compared to Alpha 2 and 3. Also the parries are difficult to pull off compared to the Perfect Blocks in Mark of the Wolves. I think I enjoy this game when I don't bother Parrying unless I feel I can pull it off reasonably and react to it efficiently, just like in MotW...it's just that happens less often here...otherwise the characters have a lot of personality, and they're all very vibrant compared to other SF games outside of Alpha 3 - really, SF characters tend to be a little generic or flat outside of those two games, IMO. It's wierd considering how ecclectic many other fighting game characters are and have been since Street Fighter II Turbo...not to say chracters like T. Hawk and E. Honda aren't cool, just that they don't stand out as much as Q or Twelve, or...really 90% of the cast in Third Strike.

I'm also really getting into the feel of SF3, even though it doesn't feel anywhere near as fast and smooth as Alpha 3. I think having the two out around the same time (along with Marvel vs. Capcom 2) was a good move, since it meant that those who wanted something where it's easier to be agressive still have something, while the hardcore who wanted to be rewarded for their tactical and defensive skills had their game as well. It's better than trying to find that Happy medium SF2 already filled, anyways.

I do agree with the idea of watching your pace. Relationships that progress too rapidly don't tend to end well. That said, I don't think Holy was planning on jumping out and yelling "I LUV U" to her last I checked, so I don't think there's much to worry about. I think he was just saying how he was feeling, and even showed some degree of caution that he might be speaking too soon.

Anyways, I hope things continue to go well, man.

On an unrelated note: I have money to burn, so I think I'll just bite the bullet and buy a PS4. I've been wanting to put it off, but Best Buy's offering a free digital copy of Killzone: Shadow Fall along with the free Far Cry 4 I'd get along with it. Offer's in stores, too, so all I need is transportation. My mom offered to pick me up from work tomorrow so maybe I'll spring the question that morning...

So long as they throw in playable Virgil sections from time to time I'm good.

Actually, I kinda wanna replay the Devil May Cry series now...

...in fact, I might just make "PS2 HD Replays" a thing to ring in the new year if I don't get a PS4 tomorrow...

I got so wrapped up in what I was gonna say to my Therapist that I ended up missing my appointment to go see my therapist. =|

Okay, this Anima game looks a lot cooler than I remember it being when it was being kickstarted. I definitely want to keep an eye on it now.


Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition Announced! (also DmC)

What's that? You actually wanted to see some of the Special Edition? Sorry, this still Capcom we're talking about here. =P

Oh, and in case someone cares: BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend was announced for the PS3, PS4, and Xbox One. You know, for those who don't have enough copies of this game.

No I'm not mad that this news came after I just bought my 6th BlazBlue game, no siree

Just in case Lard or other collectors are interested, the publisher seems very interested in releasing physical versions of the PS3 and Vita games. I'm happy about that, too. I just filled up my Hard Drive and have nothing else I'm willing to delete. I'm gonna have to look into getting Physical copies of 10 different games I already own, now. e_e
22  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: JAST USA Licenses Steins;Gate Visual Novel in N. America on: December 16, 2014, 06:29:25 PM
Oh thank god, now I'm glad I held out because I don't have a credit card to buy it with...at least I can go to the store (or use PSN cards) once the Vita version's out.

I like how they show the school girl getting flanked while trying to lug that mace (that she clearly should not be using) around. =P

Considering that Afro Samurai is and was always trying to be Grindhouse anime...I'm not sure if he's being sarcastic. At the very least, it's not a terrible comparison even if he was.
25  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: December 15, 2014, 10:32:22 PM
Afro Samurai was fun to watch on mute w/ no subs. :T

I should really watch more Slam Dunk, that show seemed awesome from the first 2 episodes I watched, but I think I'm still a ways away from really getting invested in sports anime.

...who the heck attacks bikes? Like, maybe that'd be a city problem, but then again, you'd think a city person would have more respect for a bike's importance as a necessary means of transportation...you'd think they'd just steal it instead...

Anyways, my face has been tight all day for some reason, so it kinda hurts to smile. I guess the attempts have been making my face look contorted or something, since people seem to think I'm in a bad mood or something despite feeling great today.

No, I agree, that looks screwed up, and that's because they almost look alike but the differences make it look really weird. Uncanny valley and all that.

Ugh...everybody acts like a fucking retard with things I can do and prove I can handle on a frequent basis. Yet when it comes to the things I need help with - more complex things that my ADD, anxiety, and general poor memory have proven to be a problem on a regular basis - then I'm apparently the mature adult who should know better.

In unrelated news, I left a bottle of juice in a backpack that I haven't used in two months...for two months. Nothing in or around the backpack was damaged, but now it smells awful...that also explains the terrible smell I had been smelling in and around my room this week.

Knowing Gundam X was one of the first to be confirmed as returning made my heart leap for Joy. It's my second favorite full Gundam series after the original.

...because maybe the Family thing and/or other aspects were more interesting to them? Because I seriously, didn't find the action segments to be nearly as focused on as they were in the Digimon movie, which is the only aspect of the Digimon Movie I remember and probably the only aspect worth remembering besides the gorgeous animation...it feels more like he took the same general set up as just a framing device and then built a different story where he focused on aspects that were glazed over in the previous movie...

Kinda like how I liked The Girl Who Leapt Through Time because it didn't dwell on all of the usual Time-Travel tropes. Instead it mostly used it to set up the characters and stories it wanted to tell, and mostly succeeded in telling them well as far as I'm concerned - maybe not entirely, I agree that it had some problems towards the end. But what it did well it did really well, and I don't begrudge it for what it didn't do because there are other movies I could go and watch where they do those things. [Note, upon further review, this paragraph doesn't seem to make sense in context to what Dice said, but fuck it, I'm leaving it here]
