I started reading her review and closed it as soon as it turned into a "Moffat is teh sexist!"

It's beyond a dead horse a this point.

I just don't understand how you can look at the camp crap of Tennant's run with things like Donna becoming a *massive* deus ex machina vs. the serious tone and more grounded (overall) feel of this series. I just do not get it.

It took them 9 years but they finally got Doctor Who right.

I like the monster movies - Hellraiser, Phantasm, Re-Animator, Evil Dead more than slasher flicks.

A good ghost story like Ring or Grudge goes over well too.

*NOW* are you guys happy?

Playing Jade Empire and I'm digging it.

Pretty standard Bioware stuff in some ways but the setting is cool and I like the combat.

It's just different enough that it doesn't feel like a rehash of stuff they've done before.

The script did have some good ideas.

The only part I can see real complaints about was the sister subplot, which I agree didn't really make sense.

It was at least interesting. The show feels completely different from the soap infused trash we got from RTD.

This feels more like the original show, and I think some people just can't get over it.

The amount of ridiculous hyperbole I've seen over this episode makes me think half the people don't even watch it.

Edit - I'm not specifically talking about anyone here, just so there's no misunderstanding.

What was wrong with it exactly?
37  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: October 25, 2014, 04:20:44 PM
I just find it incredibly weird you would say that because this season seems like they're really trying to experiment and be creative.

(Except the Dalek episode, but it was still fairly good)
 
I'm curious how you guys will like today's episode.

I liked it overall.

I thought the resolution was clever and actually made sense, as well as Danny's actions.

It may have been a "kid friendly" episode but it didn't seem dumbed down.

And man.....that finale looks amazing.

You know, I was thinking of making a thread about the Mana series.

Except I was gonna call it: "Final Fantasy Adventure: The Only Good Mana Game?"

I need to try Legend of Mana first before I do that, though I've not heard good things...

I might be in the minority but I loved its short story approach as opposed to the long form novel approach of most JRPG stories.

I say give it a try.

Also, kudos to the OP for a nice thread!

Holy shit this has been a great run of episodes.

I thought Flatline looked terrible from last week's preview and it might be my favourite episode of the new season.

I can't believe how good this season, and Capaldi, are.

No no 1000 times no.  Exactly like I said with 47 Ronin and Keanu Reeves (or like how that shitty Tom Cruise movie Edge of Tomorrow ruined all you need is kill) attaching an A lister usually ends up warping brilliant source material to suit the actor, instead of finding an actor to suit the role. No good.

I agree that they should have used someone other than Tom Cruise, but Edge of Tomorrow was a surprisingly good adaptation overall.

As for GITS, I can't stand Scarlett, so I'm not particularly enthused about this. Though I don't like Tom Cruise either and I liked Edge of Tomorrow.

I really, really don't get the outcry over the science of KRM.

So people have a problem with this episode - but not with the Tardis dragging the Earth back into its place in the solar system with absolutely no damage to anyone or anything on the planet?

People are ridonkulous sometimes.

People are going to make fun of me - but I've never been able to get into Vagrant Story.

I keep hearing how awesome the story is (and miraculously never had it spoiled), but I can't get past the awful combat/inventory.

Also, I would highly recommend getting your mitts on a Classic Controller for XBC, if only for the sake of having better control over the camera. Otherwise, if you've ever played even one JRPG, you should be able to grasp how to handle the controller and the general scheme of things.

He's right.

It's like night and day playing Wii remote vs classic controller.

I actually think the first disc of Xeno 2 is pretty good. It's relatively short and painless.

It's just the second disc where it becomes a slog.
45  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: October 02, 2014, 11:54:36 PM
I watched Terror in Resonance this week.

I enjoyed it quite a bit, though it wasn't quite as politically charged as I was expecting.

Not a bad or good thing, just unexpected.
