Watched the season finale of Agents of Shield a few days ago. And overall I would say the series was good despite a weak start. I'll probably watch season 2 whenever it comes out.

Looks like we'll have to like Ike again. At least with his FE10 design, he'll fit his Brawl fighting style better, but Chrom and/or Lucina's chances of getting in as anything more than Assist Trophies are all but shot now (and The Avatar has a better chance of getting in as an Assist than either of them).

This also lines up with my theory, kinda (I was wrong about the order and was not expecting FE10's rerepresentation (since it came out before Brawl, if only by a few months), but considering that Tiki was the first Trophy shown in the April Direct Video, it makes sense that the second FE rep (third if you count Lyn's reconfirming) would be the next to be confirmed). So we're still waiting on a Zelda rep (probably Ganondorf since with Ike's return, its pretty much a case of waiting for the other shoe to drop now), a Kid Icarus rep (possibly Paluenta, though could be anybody from Uprising really), and a Metroid rep (still probably Anthony).
We like Ike!

So I have gotten through two assignments in Atelier Escha and Logy now. Game is fun so far. Timelines are generous which makes it nice to be able to just go through at my own pace.
139  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: May 22, 2014, 06:48:47 AM
I like Link's design, but I don't get why they didn't give him the Hylian Shield, unless his weapons are sword and shield as a combo. But even then I'm pretty sure there are enough shields in the series so that they could have given him 4 different existing ones easily. Although I just sort of realized that the Dynasty Warrior weapon progression is going to feel weird on Link since the most likely case seems like it will be the Master Sword being his fourth weapon meaning you won't get it till end game grinding.....and if it isn't his fourth weapon then you'll end up with like 5 Master Swords.....I suppose they could just go with the shield as his "weapon" so that he always has the Master Sword.

Only if he is able to fly.

That said, I am expecting Shia to be playable once she's done getting Hijacked by Ganon.
Yeah Shia will probably be playable. Betting Zelda becomes playable at about the same point. Anyone have any ideas on the surprises? I'm thinking Tingle.

So Monday's issue of Jump:

All You Need is Kill: Nice chapter, I totally know what the surprise at the end is though.
Code:
Rita is dead, possibly intentionally letting herself be killed because her presence was causing the loop despite everything else being destroyed last loop

One Piece: Good chapter, my instinct is that Fujitora will be fighting Pica because that I such a good power match up, but I guess we'll see.....I mean Pica is kind of pissed off at Luffy right now.

Naruto: Sakura, why are you here? Also next chapter is the beginning of the Matrix?

World Trigger: An amazing fight possibly one of the best I have seen in manga, chapter of the issue by far. Fight is even more amazing when you consider the fact that there were no main characters involved. It consisted entirely of B-list and C-list characters, and it was completely amazing. When I see a chapter like this, I have to wonder how it can possibly be so low in the rankings. Rise damn it!

Bleach: .....don't give a fudge. Why is this series not dead yet? Oh right we need something to serve as fluff to increase World Trigger's ranking. Good job on failing as a manga then Bleach. I'm sure when this week is ranked you'll successfully manage to rank below World Trigger again! I salute your failure.

Toriko: Meh, no strong feeling.

Seraph of the End: This series has gotten past the problem it had at the beginning of seeming to change concept every other week, but the dialogue is really starting to grate on me. Also this concept of the characters being completely defenseless when using their demons just.....doesn't make combat any more interesting. It makes the entire series about a bunch of glass cannons which is the most boring kind of fight.

Nisekoi: Ugh, standard Nisekoi chapter....so yeah not that good.

Stealth Symphony: I would find this interesting.....if I didn't know there is 0 chance that this won't be the first series on the chopping block next time there is a new series.

Got bored hunting for sixth weapons in Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends (the fact that multiple characters get their weapons on the same stages due to the number of stages kind of makes things extra boring), so I started Atelier Escha and Logy. Too early to have any strong opinions beyond the fact that I like Logy's design.
142  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: May 19, 2014, 06:49:33 AM
Saw the new Godzilla. I enjoyed it. While any and all monster movies could always use more action, I thought it had enough. Also, I do not get the "fat" comments. Godzilla looked fine. I think Pacific Rim was a better movie, but it was still enjoyable.
143  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: May 19, 2014, 06:46:25 AM
That could be awesome if it turns out to be more than just rumor/speculation.
144  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: May 18, 2014, 08:50:28 AM
Are you excited about the game or does any of the info seem interesting?
I guess I am excited? I'm not so hyped that I am keeping track of the news, but I have already preordered the game.

I am very curious as to how the Dragon Age Keep is going to work (although I am disappointed that my....tweaked DA2 save file is not going to be carried over, so no getting to see whether Allister or what's his face will win in terms of variable priority). Actually there are a lot of save game things that I am going to be curious to see what is possible, for example will the keep allow importing romances for both Morrigan and Leliana or will I have to make a choice. And I just realized you never mentioned the Keep, meh w/e.

Don't have a feel for the companions, so no real strong opinions regarding them. On a first look, I'll probably end up romancing Sera assuming I find her interesting, but again don't have a strong feel for her at the moment. Also feel I need to say that Leliana looks weird in that image you linked to.

I'm not sure what class I'm going to play atm. I have played warriors in the past two, but if you can start the Knight Enchanter specialization fairly early on, then I might do that instead.

Don't care about playable race.

The best was Son of Godzilla when he tries to teach his son to breathe fire down and cute little puffs of smoke come out

Oh my god, that was the WORST. Even as a kid I was watching something awful. And not in a good way.
No no no no, the worst is not Son of Godzilla. The worst is All Monsters Attack.

On top of this, he's not even the star of his own movie! They show a little of him here and there for most of the movie, with him finally taking center stage in the last 15 minutes. Even then, we are never really there with him as he does his monster thing.
That sounds a lot like a Showa era Godzilla film to me (well minus the last sentence). Haven't seen too much of the later eras to know if the trend holds, but most Godzilla movies do tend to focus on the humans and then throw Godzilla in at the end with maybe a fight in the middle.
146  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: May 18, 2014, 08:22:15 AM
So finished The Witch and the Hundred Knight yesterday.....and I do not like any of the endings that this game has.

Code:
So closest thing to an ending that I liked was the normal ending because the Knight basically just went F all this nonsense, I have better stuff to do than screw around with all of you. The "true" ending is just complete wtf? The game was crude throughout the entire thing, but killing at least one princess by rape? Having a minor unimportant character be some kind of evil mastermind or I guess cruel fatalist might be more accurate? Despite the fact that he never acts like this or hints that he was like that (oh plus he killed his entire village). It was just wtf for the sake of wtf. Oh and one of the very few likable characters was killed (possibly by rape), and yeah this was just complete bs.

Then we move on to the "bad" ending. In this ending all the characters in the game get happy endings.....except for the likable characters. Okay I am exaggerating, the pumpkin witch gets the closest thing to a happy ending she can get, Visco is returned to life (and she gets her wish for Metallia to come back to life, which makes no sense), but we never find out what happens to the fog witch and.....okay I think that is all of the likable characters. However every single asshole in the game gets a happy ending. Characters who plotted mass murder? Happy ending. Characters who were complete assholes, happy ending. Oh and the first princess? Based on what we saw happen to the other characters, she probably still remembers getting raped to death, possibly minus the death, since every other character was shown remembering the blow that killed them just not remembering that they died. So good brushing aside of that horrible wtf plot element there. So yeah, no satisfaction here. The asshole characters did not get their karmic rewards, so the ending just falls flat. Hell some characters who got their karmic rewards during the course of the game had them reversed.

The game's characters were just unpleasant and mostly irredeemable, so I regret having picked up this game. I've been losing interest in NIS games for a while and this one sealed it. Since I'm pretty sure that the next NIS game is finally going to be the Asagi one, I might pick that one up due to the never ending build up, but that is probably going to be the last one for a while.

Going back to Dynasty Warriors 8 XL now. Whoo! Grinding ahoy!

So I just finished Chapter 11 of Witch and the Hundred Knight......and wtf? This game......I just don't know what to say about it. That was a plot twist completely out of left field which has just me going da fuq?

I know I say this ALL THE TIME, but holy wow... It took me over a month to get that far. Mind you, I was playing other stuff as well for most of that time, but even then... wow. I am REALLY slow at games. It makes me completely jealous of anyone who isn't.
Eh don't freak out comparing your completion time to mine. I do hack my saves a little in order to speed things up because my backlog is never ending and I want to get through all the games in my backlog as quickly as possible.
147  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: May 18, 2014, 07:56:19 AM
What if the ending of Naruto is Sakura gets the super hyper eyes (I'm sure she can manage the surgery) and puts a genjutsu on Sasuke to make him her boy toy?

EDIT:
Actually, I have a question for everyone. Anyone know of a case of an author of a long publication making two very different publications back to back ?
The AMG-sama thing had me think that most long publication author tend to do a manga that's really similar to the last one.
I'm just wondering if there's a mold breaker out there.
That would be hilarious, scary, and awesome, but it won't happen because I'm sure Sasuke's uber eyes make him immune to Genjutsu.....and if they don't Naruto would free his bromance partner somehow.

When you say long publication, how long are we talking? I'm not too familiar with the authors of manga that ran for 25+ years and has ended. Hiromu Arakawa wrote Fullmetal Alchemist for nearly a decade and then went on to write a slice of life(?) story about a city kid going to a farming school (Silver Spoon). For a shorter example, Tsugumi Ohba wrote Death Note for three years and as far as I can tell his next work was Bakuman which are basically night and day.
148  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: May 17, 2014, 07:25:33 AM
Big news I guess.
After 25 years of publication, Ah Megami-sama (Ah My Goddess) has finally ended.

You could technically say it took 25 years for them to get married.

That is big news. :O Did they ever get a Guinneas World Record for Most Drawn-out Storyline?

Ahahahahahahaha, no. Not even close. You have stuff like Doremon, Lupin the 3rd, as well as other miscellaneous manga and anime that have been going on since the 60s-70s.
Well is there really a central storyline to either Doremon or Lupin the 3rd? I'm not too familiar with either one, but my understanding is that they are just very long running episodic storylines rather than drawn out storylines. Longest manga with a central storyline that I can think of would be Hajime no Ippo. No idea on whether that one is drawn out or not though.

I'm glad Morisato hopefully won't have to suffer more from his blue balls.

From my on/off reading of the series though, I've enjoyed it.  I'd still love to see what else Fujishima would work on.  He's a great illustrator and a pretty fun (albeit safe) story teller.

And, stupid point: But I admire this series for actually have three main ladies *all* without bangs.  I don't think this ever really happens ever in manga-land otherwise. :P
Oh come on, it happens often in Manga, like One Piece where there are two main female characters who don't have defined love interests (actually no main character in One Piece has  a defined love interest because adventure!.....not counting Sanji who crushes on every female in existence). Then there is Mag....no, Fullmetal....no, Baku.....no, Naruto? Does it count if the female character is obsessed with a guy who will never give her the time of day so there is no chance of them ever becoming a couple? Oh I know, Negima!....wait no that is a harem series, so the only reason there were females who weren't throwing themselves at Negi is because the series ended one arc early. Maybe Bleach? Depends on how generous you are with "main lady." Oh I know, Soul Eater and The World God Only Knows (weird that this one works considering that the series premise is the main character getting girls to fall in love with him, but it does apply throughout the series and thenseveral times over in the finale).

Fine I'll admit it is uncommon, but I'll counter that it is uncommon in most forms of media.

150  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wild Arms For PS4 still possible on: May 17, 2014, 06:56:27 AM
I actually have a real love affair with Wild Arms 3's English opening.... because it's sung by none other than Jem from Jem and the Holograms.  Which was awesome

All other songs are invalid.

Wait, that's a lie.  WA1's intro is a goddamn classic too and the first PSX game I ever saw played.
Fucking nostalgia.  WHERE HAS THIS SERIES GONE?!

I agree with Dice, I adore WA3's opening, and appreciated how the animation changes based upon where in the story you are.  WA1's is my second favorite.

I also really like the WA3 ending theme too.  The English version's singer is perfect. The Japanese singer just doesn't have the strength in her voice.
I just remembered how freaking badass Asgard (or at least I think that was its name) looked in the opening for WA3 when it was in it. Actually Asgard just looked badass throughout all of WA3, should have been a party member!
