I'm not stoked about the return of demon conversations. I know that's probably sacrilege, but it's been the one part of the series I never really liked, and I was happy when Persona 3 followed in Digital Devil Saga's footsteps by removing it.  I found the shuffle time mechanic just a lot more streamlined and better for my style of play.
I don't think we've seen them in action yet, but my impression from what I've read so far seems to be that the "conversations" might have less of the randomness in them. I mean they are called hold ups and are triggered when you get all enemies knocked down, so I don't think the demons have much of a choice in whether they do what they say or not (but I could be wrong).

Xenosaga I - The movie
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvbXiOvWFp0

It seriously feels like it should have been a movie when you look at how little you miss by watching just the cutscenes + (shortened) boss fights.

(Yes there are also movies for II and III, but who would want to watch that?)
 
There actually was a DVD released (as a preorder incentive for Episode 2?) that has all of the cut scenes from episode 1 just strung together. I don't think it has anything between cut scenes though, so it jumps around in a few places.

I still don't understand why but for various reasons, disc 2 of Xenogears never really bothered me!
It didn't bother me when I first played the game. I found it to be an interesting design choice and was enjoying the plot so much that I didn't care (plus see my basic immunity to cut scene length). Now that I am aware of the "reason" behind disc 2, I do lament the loss of what could have been there instead though.

Finished the story in Persona 4 Dancing All Night. I suck at rhythm games, so I don't think I am going to force myself to slog through for the platinum. I think I'll go through each song in the free mode one more time to get a few trophies and then move on.

Not sure atm what game I'll be going to next. I was originally planning on doing Codename Steam next. But playing Dancing All Night put me in the mood to finally get my Persona 4 Golden playthrough done, so I might get started on that, although I may have to interrupt that for ZTD when that comes out.

Pretty sure I don't have a limit to too many cutscenes. Or if I do, it is do freaking high that it is practically impossible for me to ever reach it.

Remember Xenosaga...

Nevermind Xenosaga. Xenogears burned almost an entire disk on cutscenes (dat Chair). Though, Xenosaga 2 was the worst of the bunch (there's hardly even a game there).
Oh Xenogears disk 2, if only you had been completed so that Esmerelda could have an Omnigear...I mean so that we didn't have to sit through the chair scenes describing what was planned but unfinished.

As for Xenosaga, I recall Episode 1 being the one that was considered extremely cutscene heavy. Admittedly, I barely remember anything about 2 as I have blocked most of those memories away other than the space pope fight happening (because it is funny to say space pope fight). However Episode 1 had fairly long cutscenes even in combat, so that might have worn away at people's tolerances.

Wait, you guys were actually serious about Wolf Link?!

*Checks Trailer*

...Dog Meat? Is that you?

Damn, now I sort of regret not getting the amiibo. Hopefully they can include it as DLC eventually...I mean, c'mon...
You can still pick up the amiibo on its own if you really want it. It is over MSRP on Amazon though. Doubt they are going to release it as DLC on its own.

Say what you will, but Basch, Balthier, Ashe, and Fran are all some of the best FF characters ever.  Even Penelo made my heart all warm and fuzzy and she was relegated to bystander status for no good reason.  XII is 10/10 in the Character department.
Are they that good? I barely remember anything about FF12, but for some reason or another I recall finding the characters boring. I'm not saying I'm right, but that is what I recall.

Platinumed Odin Sphere last night. Game is still as amazing as I remembered it. I'm thinking of rewatching all the cutscenes in chronological order (or at least something close to that) before I put the game away. Not sure what game I am going to play next. I need to fill up two weeks or so while waiting on ZTD. Maybe I'll final get around to Persona 4: Dancing All Night and Codename Steam as I believe both of those are short.

You are never too late. Here are some more:

Jesus Christ: Raiders of the Lost Bethlehem
Jesus Christ and the Temple of Moneychangers
Jesus Christ and the Last Supper
Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of the Crystal God

Also there is the TV series The Young Jesus Christ Chronicle according to Thomas, but that one just going to be non-canon, so it doesn't matter.

JC has to breakdance to save the community center from robber barons
Passion 2:Electric Boogaloo?

Jesus Returns: Passion of the Christ 2. :V
No no no, you are skipping an episode. Since we had a New Hope, the next one should be Passion Wars Episode 5: The Devil Strikes Back. The one after that is Episode 6: Return of the Jesus. The we get into the prequel trilogy!

No. Jesus Returns is #2 before it all starts to go down hill with Jesus Forever and Jesus and Peter before getting rebooted with Jesus Begins, followed by The Christ and The Christ Rises (and then we all pretend that Jesus Vs. Superman never happened).
Wait now I am confused, where do Jesus Lives, Jesus Takes Manhattan, Jesus Goes to Hell, and Jesus X fit in this?

A bit late, but still... it's the new season announcements (was waiting for a new page)

Chart:
http://anichart.net/summer
Only things that I'll probably watch are the Danganronpa animes and the Persona 5 special or w/e. The prequel anime for Danganronpa is probably going to be painful to watch though. >.>

Double dealing of DANGANRONPA
Kinda weird to have 2 DANGANRONPA animes in one season, but I've heard these things are pretty good so should be fine.
I haven't watched any of these yet but definitively plan to binge the whole thing at some point.
Well the two anime are meant to answer two questions that are left over the game (although I was honestly never expecting to get one of these questions answered). I'll be very curious as to how accessible they are going to be since there are two games that don't have anime adaptations. Oddly enough, the conclusion anime will probably be the easier one to follow (assuming you have seen the first anime), but the prequel one will be almost entirely about new characters.

As I feared, it looks like ZTD's story presentation is going to be a hot mess. As shown in how you select story parts to follow.

http://cdn.akamai.steamstatic.com/steam/apps/311240/ss_2f5d3c94cb3af14a0599d47a86c78a95f15650c8.jpg?t=1464851692

They don't even look remotely sorted in anything orderly. So not only is the story
Code:
chronologically bouncing all over the place, but the selection system itself gives you no clue as
to what piece is where in the timeline without having to consult the Global Chart
... Uggggggh. >.<; I know 999/VLR hasn't been exactly straightforward up til now...but I shouldn't need a freaking triple-sided roadmap to enjoy a timeline-driven plot.

That has been known for a while.

Code:
The characters in the game are being constantly given amnesia juice every 90 min. As a result they have no idea of what has happened to them in the previous rounds, and there is no context clues (unless someone is dead). So you select memory fragments as you essentially randomly jump around, and when you complete a memory fragment it gets thrown into the appropriate place in the timeline, and then you slowly get an understanding of the how things connect as you see where everything fits into the timelines. It is the gimmick for this game,

So we apparently have 10% and 100% Zygarde now. 100% is a lot smaller than I thought it was.

Oh my god, I love this game. I don't remember specifics of how the original played, but I do remember that I was so bad at some aspects of the original that I just gave up and gamesharked my way through. Now? I got through chapter 4 of the Valkyrie storyline last night with S rank on every room except for two (which I went back and redid). I am admittedly playing on Easy though.

Also loving the minor lore notes that I believe were added...or at least I don't recall them being there in the original.
