I actually think SO4's voice acting, while not perfect, was better than 3's, which had gems like:

Blade...of Fury!
What do you think you're DOING?
My MONEY!

Glad you could turn off voices in battle. Giving monsters voices = worst idea ever. Farleen was annoying too.

I went through the Divergent trilogy and collection Four in anticipation of the forthcoming film, and while I thought the first book was decent, I got sort of lost in the second and third ones, and partway through the collection. I even looked for a flying cube house on fire in Insurgent, but just didn't see it. One case in which I actually sort of prefer the movies.

I also read a book called The Green Ember and its prequel The Black Star of Kingston by S.D. Smith, which are intriguing tales of anthropomorphic rabbits with political overtones, although it sort of inherits the specism of the Redwall series in that animals like hawks and wolves are inherently bad.

Next I'll tackle the Outlander books again in anticipation of the show's return.

Watched One Punch Man and was impressed. Now back to Dragon Ball Z and the Android plot arc.

I just found out something about Dark Souls I completely overlooked: you can lock onto enemies and move sideways while doing so. I would have never realized this had I not watched a video for help with the boss fight against the gargoyles. Hell, I didn't know this when I played its spiritual predecessor Demon's Souls. This completely changes the gameplay for me. I am really, really sorry I was a complete dick about this game, but since PS3 games tend not to come with instructions, and I didn't see this mentioned anywhere in the game and its predecessor, I think that's a legitimate criticism. If I end up actually liking Dark Souls, I may have to rebuy and go through Demon's Souls again. Wow, just, wow.

Oy, where to begin...

Adventures of Mana - I'm an hour in but enjoying it thus far and have beaten one boss and am at the vampire's mansion.

Dark Souls - I seriously want to fucking shove atomic bombs up the fucking asses of the fucking Japs who produced this fucking overrated pile of horseshit. The dumbass who thought it'd be cute to have the game insult the player's intelligence when they die needs to have his fucking head chopped off. I'm fucking sick of fantards saying that pieces of shit like this are "rewarding" when they have virtually nonexistent awesome storyline that's actually a reward for triumphing over tough bosses, and it's not challenging in a good way, but a fucking cheap way, for instance, by making it fucking difficult to heal in the middle of battle. And no pause button? Whoever decided that needs to have their fucking game development degree fucking revoked. It fucking sickens me that fantards constantly gush over shit like this instead of actually helping those having a difficult time enjoying it actually appreciate it more. Talk about sucking phantom dick.

Diablo III - Late in Act II, still having an enjoyable time.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel - I'm in Chapter 4, and I'm still having a good time.

The Legend of Legacy - I finally beat the boss of the Bogsaur Marshes, but I actually don't think I had to do so since I found another dungeon at the end of one that I opened up by getting a certain item.

Hey, lay the fuck off of Sword of Truth, assholes. For your information, I found the SellAMillion to be an unreadable pile of horseshit.
52  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: February 23, 2016, 09:07:20 PM
Taking a break from the Sorcerer's Ring and Sword of Truth books to read the Divergent trilogy plus the collection Four.

Finished Around the World with Willy Fog, and am now in the Garlic Jr. plot arc of Dragon Ball Z. Toriyama can definitely put together some truly epic battles.

Wouldn't it be a lot less tedious and more resourceful for the developers to do another game set in the same universe with game mechanisms built upon rather than replaced entirely?
55  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: February 17, 2016, 10:04:30 PM
I'm at the kindle point in the Undead Burg in Dark Souls. Is it really fucking necessary for the game to say YOU DIED when you do so? Durr.

On Act II in Diablo III, having a good time.

Been grinding for tens of hours in The Legend of Legacy since the boss of the swamps rapes me.

I'm in Chapter 3 in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. Love how all battle animations are skippable.

I remember Rocky and Bullwinkle and Ren and Stimpy Gameboy games essentially being the same level-wise save for the different characters.
57  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: February 12, 2016, 11:25:55 PM
Finished Sherlock Hound and the Frieza plot arc of Dragon Ball Z, and am breaking from DBZ again to watch the first series of Around the World with Willy Fog.

I read all the Shannara books up to the original trilogy and the stories occurring shortly after it (before the Heritage of Shannara subseries), and right now I'm dividing my time between The Sword of Truth since its supposed absolute final book came out late last year, and Morgan Rice's The Sorcerer's Ring series, which is a great entry-level fantasy series. I can definitely understand why many don't like Sword of Truth, since it can be slow at times, especially with regards to the first few books, and Goodkind's editors glossed over countless punctuation errors.

I'm not sure anymore if books are better than movies, since I've gotten into a bit of a funk where my memory is fuzzy even after spending a lot of time reading books (to the point where I've had to take notes on my iPad so I can actually write a detailed review). I do still get somewhat annoyed when film adaptations don't follow the book to a point, for instance in the film version of Return of the Ring where there's a lot more in the book that happens after the visit to Mount Doom. I also don't remember there being a flying house on fire in the book version of The Divergent Series: Insurgent. It's weird.

My summation of 99% of critical opinion on the prequels: lol teh prekwelz suk teh originalz rool jorj looks raypt my chyldhud amirite?

Seriously, the originals aren't that fucking perfect, either, and the entire original trilogy itself could have been resolved if the Imperials just fucking vaporized the escape pod with Threepio and Artoo instead of idiotically thinking it was empty. All the original films are fucking full of plot holes, and there is "bad" dialogue like "Why you stuck-up half-witted scruffy-looking nerf herder." Hell, even Mark Hamill complained that the dialogue was bad during the making of Empire.
